T.I. is tired of setting the record straight about his record in trap music, which probably explains why he’s shading mega producer Brian Grazer’s planned biopic on Gucci Mane. We got T.I. out in Bev Hills Wednesday and asked him…
Jill Duggar is generally not one to make waves.
The second-eldest daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, Jill has spent the majority of her life meeting the demands of her ludicrously strict upbringing.
On the reality shows that made her family famous, Jill quickly emerged as a fan favorite, modest enough to appeal to the fundamentalist segment of the Duggars’ fan base, but independent enough to give hope to those who watch in … that she and her sisters will one day break away.
When Jill married Derick Dillard in 2014, however, her public image took a turn for the worse.
Brash and abrasive where Jill was meek and kind, Derick quickly became a divisive figure amongst Duggar fans.
Last year, Derick was fired from Counting On after making comments about fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings that many considered transphobic.
Jill quit the show in a gesture of solidarity, thus leaving her young family with no source of income.
These days, Jill has a lot of time on her hands, and she often uses it to post on social media, despite frequently disturbing fans with her content.
This week Jill posted a list of prayers for her children that many took as evidence of bigotry.
The items on the list were mostly innocuous concerns, such as “Their salvation,” “That they would be kept morally pure,” “That they would love each other.”
But the last prayer struck a nerve with fans, many of whom considered it further evidence of Jill’s transphobia.
The response from Instagram users was swift and harsh, with some accusing Jill of rank hypocrisy:
“But it’s ok to be a homophobic, cheating molester who is literally making money from having their family on a reality show,” wrote one fan.
The comments seem to refer to both Josh Duggar – who molested five young girls while living under his parents’ roof – and
Now, Jill is criticized on social media quite regularly, with followers taking issue with everything from her parenting to her wardrobe.
But this time is different in that Jill actually replied:
“I have never said those actions were ok.”
Now, that may seem like a very mild response, but as many have pointed out, it constitutes the first time that Jill has expressed any misgivings about the behavior or beliefs of her brother and husband.
Perhaps this is the beginning of a new day for Jill.
Maybe she’ll finally join the rest of the world in calling the male members of her family out for their more problematic actions.
What seems more likely, however, is that Jill has simply grown tired of being lumped in with men like Derick and Josh.
Some feel that she’s complicit with their behavior, while others see Jill as a victim.
Whatever the case, she’s clearly fed up with being associated with the more shameful aspects of her family history.

Blake Shelton holds many titles:
Blake Shelton, Country Music Superstar.
Blake Shelton, The Voice Coach.
And to this list, we must now add: Blake Shelton, Flamethrower Extraordinaire.
The beloved singer took Twitter followers by surprise on Wednesday afternoon when he heated up social media via one simple message that was clearly intended to burn his ex-wife to her core.
And here’s why:
Earlier this week, it was confirmed by multiple outlets that Miranda Lambert is dating Evan Felker.
On its own, this development isn’t particularly shocking, considering Felker fronts the band that has been opening for Lambert on tour.
HOWEVER, both Radar Online and Us Weekly report that Lambert very likely broke up Felker’s marriage by sleeping with the musician, as the former website has even obtained the artist’s divorce papers.
They cite Felkner’s “abandonment” of ex-wife Staci Nelson and they were filed in February, right around the time Felkner allegedly got with Lambert.
Just this revelation on its own was newsworthy and noteworthy.
Heck, we wrote an entire article about it.
But now we get to write a follow-up because Shelton has seemingly responded to the rumor that his ex-wife is a homewrecker by Tweeting the following:
Been taking the high road for a long time.. I almost gave up. But I can finally see something on the horizon up there!! Wait!! Could it be?! Yep!! It’s karma!!
Well, alright then!
Do you want a coat from all the shivering you must be doing now that so much shade has been hurled in your direction, Miranda?
There’s really no way for anyone to interpret Blake’s message as anything other than a statement that Lambert cheated on him.
The stars were married for four years and then split up in 2015 amid chatter that each side was unfaithful.
But Shelton said very little at the time.
He said at every occasion that he and Lambert would always be close and he’d always have a special place in his heart for her and yadda, yadda, yadda.
However, it’s not as though there weren’t rumblings of Lambert’s cheating.
Heck, there was one rumbling that said she cheated on Shelton FIVE times.
The following tabloid cover alleged as much, quoting an insider who said Shelton caught Lambert in the act as one point and was left “heartbroken and furious” by her actions.
If these reports were accurate, it would be hard to blame Shelton for now enjoying the fact that Lambert’s reputation has taken a hit due to her sexual intercourse with a married man.
The country legend, of course, has moved very far on from Lambert.
He’s been happily dating Gwen Stefani for ages, constantly gushing over her on Instagram and considering marrying her, if certain gossip out there is to be believed.
Shelton also once said the following to Billboard about Stefani, who had recently broken up with husband Gavin Rossdale when she became intimate with Blake:
“Who else on earth could understand going through a high-profile divorce from another musician? You can’t even imagine the similarities in our divorces.”
If you’ll recall, Rossdale supposedly cheated on Stefani for years with the couple’s nanny.
Could being the victims of cheating be what Shelton was talking about when citing the pair’s “similarities.”
You tell us.
(The answer is yes.)
It’s been almost five months since Farrah Abraham was fired from Teen Mom OG as a result of her continued refusal to quit performing in live-streaming sex shows.
We still don’t know what the show will look like without the famously unpredictable Farrah, but her number one rival Amber Portwood says fans can expect the TMOG to come back stronger than ever.
Amber spoke out on life after Farrah in an interview with In Touch this week and to the surprise of absolutely no one, she’s not exactly fiending for more Abraham in her life:
“We’re doing good without Farrah,” Amber told the tabloid this week.
Yes, it seems filming is under way, and Amber feels the whole process is going more smoothly without
Of course, TMOG is unlike most other reality shows in that the cast spends very little time under the same roof, and their storylines mostly take place in separate states.
So it’s not not like Amber can really say for sure if the show will suffer in Farrah’s absence.
But apparently, the response she’s been seeing on social media leads Portwood to believe that fans are mostly in favor of the decision to kick Abraham to the curb:
“We still have our fans and some of them are really happy about it, so I can’t knock that,” Amber said.
Farra, of course, strongly disagrees:
“You could take all the girls on all the series, but none can bring or do as much as I do for the series,” she told Us Weekly in response to recent rumors that she would be replaced by Mackenzie McKee.
The crazy part is, Farrah might be right:
The most famous clash between Amber and Farrah came during a reunion show taping in 2016, when the ladies famously almost engaged in a physical altercation.
Things calmed down a bit in the months that followed, but there’s still a good deal of tension between the former co-stars.
Earlier this year, Farrah went off on the subject of Amber’s pregnancy, accusing her of pretending that it was a surprise and receiving a bonus from producers for getting knocked up:
Amber, just f–king admit you planned your pregnancy. Lmao this is so pathetic,” Abraham tweeted.
“F–K TEEN MOM! Enjoy the bonus for your new kid and pay your child support!”
We’re sure some fans are happy to see Farrah go – but it won’t be easy to find a replacement that can bring that level of drama.
Watch Teen Mom OG online to remind yourself just how bonkers the Farrah years could get.
Marc Daly is real, you guys!
On The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 17, we finally got to lay eyes on Kenya Moore’s husband, and we’re amazed about it.
If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you will know that Kenya’s marriage has been the subject of much scrutiny because of it all happening in secret.
Her pals have wondered whether there was more to it than met the eye, but Kenya kept countering that her man was just not into the way men were portrayed on the franchise.
Kenya’s storyline has been lacking on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10, and we would not be surprised if she were officially fired.
In any case, she finally got something to do this week. Remember the PSA about domestic violence from Cynthia Bailey? Well, Kenya was given the opportunity to speak out about it during a screening party.
This involved bringing some survivors out, glamming them up and parading them around for the Bravo cameras. As expected, all of the housewives showed up for the festivities.
It’s fantastic that these women can put all of the drama aside to come together for a good cause. Maybe there’s hope for them yet.
Sheree was quick to question where Marc was, and Kenya looked like she wanted to burst into tears. She blatantly said her husband could not book a plane ticket.
In one of the biggest shockers in recent memory, Marc brazenly walked through the doors of the event just as Kenya was giving her speech.
Sheree continued to ruffle feathers by making comments about his nose ring. Yes, Sheree is one of the wittiest housewives out there.
Marc wasted no time in letting the others know just how proud he was of his wife, but he looked like he was talking through gritted teeth.
It felt unnatural and as though the scenes had been manipulated. Yes, we know all of them are, but these looked more so.
Elsewhere, Kandi and Todd chatted about the whole fiasco with NeNe and the rape comment. Kandi wanted NeNe to tour with her, but she struggled to make a case for it.
Todd admitted that he thought it was definitely a joke, and alluded to the fact that the President of the United States makes terrible comments all the time and he’s still the President.
Maybe NeNe will get to stick around for the tour after all.
Then there was Sheree, who was pressing ahead with her relationship with Tyrone aka the man in prison. Her daughter was not amused and lashed out with a string of words that gave Sheree food for thought.
How long will it take for Sheree to realize that the relationship could all be a sham? In any case, we’re glad Sheree has a storyline this season, but she can do so much better.
What did you think of all the action?
Sound off below.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta continues Sundays on Bravo.
As it turns out, Younes Bendjima has more than just a pretty face.
(And rock hard abs… and strong biceps… and thick legs… and a butt that refuses to quit…)
He also has a mouth that spits red hot fire.
The surprisingly long-term boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian shared a few words on Snapchat this week that simply had to be directed at Scott Disick.
Bendjima did not call Disick out by name in the post, but he did write the following:
“Sometimes those who don’t socialize much aren’t actually anti-social. They just have no tolerance for drama, stupidity and fake people.”
Whoa there! Clear shot fired, right?
These harsh words were preceded by “YOU FEEL ME” in all capital letters.
Disick, of course, has become as well known as this point for partying and for being extremely social as he has for nearly anything else.
It’s the reason Kourtney finally pulled the plug on their romance years ago: Disick was off in France, drinking and spending time with an ex-girlfriend and it was all too much for Kardashian to handle.
So it seems rather apparent to us that when Bendjima brings up socializing as he does above, he’s pointing his finger right at Disick and calling him out for being “stupid” and “fake.
And we love it!
Bendjima has been dating Kardashian now for over a year.
No one really thought this relationship would be more than a fling when the two first got together… but here they are.
And there was Kourtney on an episode of her family’s reality show, actually admitting she might one day want to have kids with Younes.
Still, this is an unusual step for Bendjima to have taken.
He’s mostly gone the strong and silent route when it comes to Disick, who insiders have said is beyond angry that this hot model is still banging his three-time baby mama.
“Scott is insanely jealous of Younes,” a source told E! News last month, adding:
“He just can’t come to terms with the fact that Kourtney has found true happiness with someone else.”
If this were anyone else but Scott Disick, we’d feel bad for the guy.
We all can relate to how difficult it often is to watch an ex-lover move on.
Truth be told, though, this is Scott Disick.
He’s never come across as particularly nice or caring or un-douche-like.
Moreover, he’s dating Sofia Richie! It’s not like he’s sitting at home, trying to be a better person, pining over Kourtney.
We don’t know that prompted this trash talk from Bendjima, but we are so very much here for it.
There have been too many babies and not nearly enough drama in Kardashian world these days. We need a lot more of the former.
As the wife of the notorious Josh Duggar, Anna Duggar has endured an awful lot in recent years.
Through it all, however, the beleaguered mother of five has kept a smile on her face and has never had anything but kind words for her famous in-laws.
Until now, that is …
In a recent social media post, Anna made a comment that some Duggar fans are interpreting as subtle trash talk.
“I’m so thankful for the 5 beautiful children God has given us (+1 in heaven!). Jim Bob & Michelle have 10 grandchildren and 2 more on the way,” Anna wrote.
“On Joshua’s side of the family I’m mommy to 1/2 of the grandchildren so far…and the only grand-daughters! #FunFactFriday @duggarfam.”
The “+1 in heaven” remark refers to the miscarriage Anna suffered in 2010.
Anna has discussed the loss before, referring to it as the great heartbreak of her life.
But what fans are most focused on in her latest post is the remark about how many grandchildren Anna has provided for Jim Bob and Michelle.
If you’re a fan of the family, you know that with the exception of their religious beliefs, the Duggars prioritize procreation above all else.
So when Anna casually points out that she’s birthed half of the Duggar grandchildren and all of Jim Bob and Michelle’s granddaughters, it’s hard not to see it as a boast.
It’s the sort of comment that Duggar fans would normally be quick to call out, but in this case, it seems the consensus is that Anna has earned a pass.
In addition to having endured multiple Josh Duggar sex scandals, Anna is currently living a life of virtual exile as a result of her controversial decision to stand by her man.
Josh and Anna live in a separate town and they have no involvement with his family’s media empire.
Josh isn’t completely cut off – he currently works on a used car lot that’s co-owned by his father – but he’s not exactly his parents’ favorite.
Anna welcomed her fifth child back in September of 2017, but the occasion was not met with the fanfare that usually surrounds a Duggar birth.
In fact, baby Meredith became the first Duggar grandchild whose birth was not filmed.
The Duggars reasons for keeping their distance from Josh are obvious, of course.
Fans remain revolted by his actions and every time they’re reminded of his continued existence, the reaction is harsh.
It’s shocking that the Duggars were able to rebuild their brand following the Josh scandals, and they’re not about to risk it by welcoming him back on TV.
Unfortunately for poor Anna, she’s just an innocent who was dragged down by her husband’s actions.
So you really can’t blame her for occasionally reminding the world that she’s more than just a long-suffering wife.

Motherhood is bringing out the best in Kim Kardashian.
At least according to her sister.
In a couple of Tweets on Tuesday morning, Khloe Kardashian gleefully heaped praise on her ex-sex tape star of a sibling, giving Kim props for her recent run of shade-throwing on social media.
“I am squealing like a little pig looking at all of Kimberly’s Instagram’s from the day! Oh my God is she not sooooooo on fire right now?” asked Khloe of her followers, adding:
“FEELING THE FANTASY.”
She later added:
“Between her pictures and her clap backs…. I’m just living for it all. Confidence looks great on you Keeks.”
To what, exactly, is Khloe referring?
Kim has been filling up her Instagram page over the past several days with photos of herself in underwear, topless or straight up naked.
She also made headlines on Monday night for hurling an insult in the direction of Lindsay Lohan.
After the long-time trainwreck said she was “confused” by Kim’s new braided hairstyle, Kim shot back that she’s confused by Lohan’s accent.
It’s a tremendous feud that we can only hope – nay, pray!!! – is just getting started.
“Hi, can I get zero f-cks please, thanks,” wrote Kardashian as a caption to this image.
Kim and husband Kanye West, of course, became parents to a little girl named Chicago earlier this month.
The baby was birthed by a surrogate due to a health complication for Kardashian that makes it dangerous for her to get pregnant again.
Is Kim up late at night feeding this tiny human being? Does that explain why she’s surfing the Internet and picking fights left and right?
If you’ll recall, just over a week ago, Kardashian also shaded Lamar Odom over his penchant for banging hookers.
She really is on fire these days.
Becoming a mother for the third time doesn’t explain why Kardashian has decided to wear her hair in the style of dreadlocks, which is a choice that has stirred up quite the online controversy.
Many critics are taking Kim to task for appropriating African-American culture once again, especially since she gave white actress Bo Derek credit for inventing the above look.
One Instagram user wrote that she expects Kardashian to issue an apology over the coming days, saying she’s very sorry if anyone is offended by this hairdo.
We’re not so sure, however.
Scroll back up and check out the caption Kim wrote to that picture of herself in bed, on the telephone.
Does this look like a woman who gives a single solitary you-know-what regarding the opinions of others right now?
Love her or hate her, there’s no denying that Kailyn Lowry speaks her mind.
Following her on social media means generally having a good sense of what sort of day Kail is having.
Her fans know when she’s excited about a new project, when she’s enjoying time with her three sons, and most importantly, when she’s pissed off.
In recent months, it seems there have been two primary targets of Kail’s ire:
First, there’s Javi Marroquin.
Javi began dating Briana DeJesus back in October, and Kail reacted to the news that her ex-husband was hooking up with her rival about as well as anyone would.
Actually, she handled better than most, as evidenced by the fact that Javi still has the full use of both of his legs.
Needless to say, it was something of a minor victory for Kailyn when Javi and Briana broke up earlier this month.
Now she has more time to focus on the other ex that’s a frequent thorn in her side.
We’re talking, of course, about Chris Lopez, the father of Kailyn’s youngest son, Lux.
Kail didn’t mention Chris by name in her latest Twitter tirade, but it’s pretty clear who she’s referring to:
“One thing I can’t f-cking stand is a man who tries to make it seem like he’s trying to be in his kid’s life when in fact he barely does the bare minimum.”
Lopez’s involvement in his son’s life–or lack thereof–has been an issue since the day little Lux entered the world.
Chris has apparently flip-flopped on the issue considerably, first indicating that he would not seek a relationship with his son, then changing his mind when Lux was born.
Now, it appears he’s had another change of heart.
Kail followed her original tweet up with two others that also seem to be critical of Lopez:
“You are not trying my dude,” she wrote, before adding:
“All talk, no action … In other news.”
It seems that Kail would love nothing more than to permanently leave Lopez in the past.
As a mom who puts her kids’ needs above her own, however, she seems to recognize that that’s simply not possible.
Watch Teen Mom 2 online for more of Kail’s intensely devoted brand of motherhood.
OK, so it’s been nearly four months now since we first learned that Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with her first child.
Or one month, if you just want to go from her confirmation of the big news.
Either way, that’s a pretty decent about of time for Lamar Odom to hear about the news and to come to terms with it.
Or at least to come to terms with it enough to be able to give a statement on the subject without coming across as a little bit shady, right?
Lamar makes an appearance in an upcoming episode of Mancave, a talk shot on BET, and he was asked about Khloe’s pregnancy.
“I’m happy for her,” he said. “She took care of me. She’ll be a good mother, for real. She’s a great woman.”
And that part is sweet, right?
It’s also very, very true.
We all remember how, back in 2015, Lamar suffered an overdose that very nearly killed him, and how Khloe stayed by his side, even though they were going through a divorce.
She even called off the divorce so that she’d be able to help make medical decisions for him when he was unable to do so himself.
We heard about how she rarely left his side while he was in the hospital — if she ever did at all — and how she was so intent to stay with him that she didn’t even shower when things were touch and go there for a while.
She said then that she stayed with him because while their marriage obviously didn’t work out, she still had love for him, and she couldn’t just abandon him in such a time.
So she did take care of him, in a very real way.
But this next thing that Lamar said in the interview?
Well, it wasn’t quite so sweet …
“I still got my shawty’s name still on me, her initials still on me,” he said, referring to the matching tattoos he and Khloe got on their hands when they were married.
“But for no reason,” he clarified.
He said that “I understand when it’s over, it’s over. When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I could see that.”
Damn, Lamar, don’t hold back!
We get that he’s probably just joking around, or trying to make light of a difficult situation, and of course the Kardashians have always appreciated professional athletes for boyfriends.
But this just seems a little too catty, you know?
It’s not like Khloe ran through NBA players after filing for divorce — which she did, by the way, at least in part because Lamar publicly cheated on her.
The only serious relationships she had between Lamar and Tristan Thompson were with French Montana, a rapper, and James Harden.
She was rumored to be dating Rick Fox for a little while in there, too, so Tristan would make her third NBA player after Lamar.
But regardless of the types of men she decides to date, it’s obvious that she’s very happy right now, way happier than she was during much of her marriage to Lamar here.
And really, that’s what counts.
