Ex-Playmate Karen McDougal Settles National Enquirer Lawsuit, Free to Talk Trump Affair

Ex-Playmate Karen McDougal is clear to spill the beans about her alleged affair with Donald Trump … and, perhaps most importantly to her, make a ton o’ money off it. McDougal had sued the National Enquirer’s parent company, American Media, over a…


Farrah Abraham Settles Lawsuit Against Viacom; Did She Win?!

In late 2017, Farrah Abraham was fired from MTV. It was a mess. And Farrah claims that she was slut-shamed over her sex work.

Farrah blasted her former employers for what she called “hate crimes.”

This week, that lawsuit has already been settled, somehow. What’s more, everyone’s coming away happy. How?

Following Farrah Abraham’s very complicated firing from MTV’s Teen Mom OG, she didn’t exactly take it lying down.

(Pun not intended)

She put MTV and its parent company on blast, saying that she had been sex-shamed for her sex work.

In February, Farrah sued Viacom (MTV’s parent company; Viacom probably owns like a third of the visual media that you consume).

She alleged that Viacom had engaged in discrimination based upon gender over her sex work.

She was asking for $ 5 million.

Lawsuits like this can so often drag on for months or even years, if they aren’t dismissed.

Which is why this week’s development is a little shocking.

Variety reports that Farrah’s attorney filed a notice on Tuesday that the case has been settled.

Not just settled, but settled amicably.

Terms of the settlement have not been disclosed.

Considering that, just months ago, Farrah was putting Viacom on blast for committing “hate crimes” against her, this is a bit of a surprise.

(Note: generally speaking, a hate crime has to be committed against a minority group and it also has to be, you know, a crime)

Farrah, as you may recall, was confronted in her home by a Teen Mom producer, Morgan J Freeman, about her CamSoda livestreamed sex shows. He gave her an ultimatum — to stop doing these shows, or to be fired.

While people can debate the idea of a producer giving a reality star a hard time over her sex work all day, Farrah says that this producer’s confrontational tone was so aggressive that she feared for her safety.

Freeman did not actually have the authority to give that ultimatum.

He also brought up that Farrah is allegedly “difficult” to work with for some producers … which does not really require any stretch of the imagination to accept.

The way that Farrah and Teen Mom OG split seems irreconcilable, and not because of any of the producers.

Farrah immediately launched into angry rants on social media and in interviews.

Her sentences are rarely coherent — which some may believe lends credence to the accusation that Farrah is suffering from multiple mental illnesses — but her ire against Teen Mom OG was obvious.

Right now, her attorney says that the settlement reached was amicable.

We have to wonder if Farrah is as happy with whatever secret resolution they reached as we’re lead to believe.

Knowing Farrah, she won’t keep her feelings bottled up for long.

An amicable agreement — reached so quickly — could mean a number of things.

Perhaps Viacom decided to throw money at Farrah to make her go away. Maybe not the full $ 5 million that she was after, but some amount.

Alternatively, perhaps Viacom found another way to make Farrah happy.

They’re a huge media company, and Farrah definitely appeals to viewers — some genuinely like her, while others can’t stop watching out of fascination, like with those viral pimple-popping videos.

It’s also possible that the “amicable” resolution was just that Farrah’s attorneys convinced her that she was never going to win. We don’t know.

But it’s probably just a matter of time until we all find out.


Chris Marek Settles the Matt Roloff Feud Question Once and for All

Is there or isn’t there… a feud?

Do they or do they not… get along?

Will they or will they not come to blows… over Amy Roloff?

Chris Marek has finally spoken out and provided an answer to these questions, which continue to circulate all around the Internet.

Despite there not being any outward bad blood between Marek and his girlfriend’s ex-husband, Matt Roloff, fans of Little People, Big World continue to pit this pair against each other.

Earlier this week, for instance, Amy Roloff shared a photo of her and Marek, who have been a romantic item for about a year now.

It was simple. It was sweet. It should have been harmless.

But it led followers to somehow attack Matt, claiming he never showered Amy with the sort of affection Chris shows her on a regular basis.

In other words: social media users want there to be a rivalry between Marek and Matt Roloff.

But does one actually exist?

“To be honest, Amy was concerned in the beginning about how Matt and I might interact,” Marek admitted in a recent interview with Radar Online.

However, he continued…

She has “no concerns about that now. Everything is good. Matt and I get along just fine.”

Oh, well… okay then.

That’s far less dramatic and interesting from the perspective of a celebrity gossip website.

But it’s definitely a positive thing for the Roloffs as a whole.

Marek and Amy started dating about nine months after she finalized her divorce from Matt.

The Little People, Big World stars announced to the world in June of 2015 that they were splitting up after 27 years and four kids together.

“We are proud of what we have accomplished together including raising four wonderful children who have grown to become remarkable adults and building our strong and ongoing successful businesses,” they said, adding:

“Our kids and our ever growing family, and the love and support we have for them, will be our priority.

“We will continue to work together side by side in the daily responsibilities for our many current ventures.

“We would like to thank our family, friends and all our fans for their continued support and understanding during this difficult time.”

And this is exactly what has happened.

Amy and Matt remain integral parts of each other’s lives and spend plenty of time together with their kids and grandkids, as you can see in this photo from January:

There are no hard feelings here, as much as a certain segment of the population may want there to be.

Matt is actually dating Caryn Chandler, the former manager of the family farm who was once sort of close to Amy.

Has this created a bit of tension between all parties? Probably.

But have they done an excellent job hiding it and is none of this really our business and we should therefore just butt out and get excited instead for the return of Little People, Big World on April 3?
