Lance Armstrong Shades Alex Rodriguez I’m a Better Person Than You!

Breaking News

Lance Armstrong is still pissed that fellow admitted cheater Alex Rodriguez has essentially been forgiven by society while he’s still considered a villain — since Lance says he’s done WAY more to help people.

“A-Rod didn’t raise half a BILLION dollars and try to save people’s lives,” Armstrong said on the “Today” show … obviously referring to the work he did with the Livestrong foundation. 

Armstrong then threw even more shade at the baseball player … sarcastically saying, “Look, it’s great when somebody hits home runs and maybe does an event here and there for the Boys & Girls Club.”

Armstrong has previously griped about A-Rod … telling “Freakonomics Radio” back in July, “The one key thing is that Alex Rodriguez was allowed to come back and play. And, Alex Rodriguez was part of a team sport. And thirdly, Alex Rodriguez never stood for anything else other than baseball.”

“So, I was never allowed to come back to my sport at any level, and most people viewed it as an individual sport. And, I stood for much more than just cycling.”

Patricia Altschul: Southern Charm Star SHADES Ashley Jacobs in Scathing Tweet

Despite some fan speculation, viewers won’t see Ashley Jacobs return to Southern Charm next season.

Ashley confirmed that on social media, claiming that it was her choice.

Patricia Altschul isn’t letting that claim stand unchallenged, and mocked Ashley’s post. Did she go too far?

“After a lot of prayerful consideration,” Ashley announced on Instagram. “I have decided not to return to Southern Charm next season.”

There was more to her announcement, and we’ll get to that.

But right now, let’s look at what one of the reigning Southern Charm stars has to say.

The absolute legend that is Patricia Altschul saw Ashley’s announcement and decided to parody it with an announcement of her own.

“After prayerful consideration,” Patricia tweeted. “I’ve decided to decline the Nobel Peace Prize and the swimsuit cover of Sports Illustrated.

Patricia Altschul shades Ashley Jacobs in tweet

Patricia Altschul is a delight.

It is clear by the implication of her tweet that, as far as she is concerned, Ashley was never considered for an invitation to return to the show.

That’s not so surprising — Ashley was never a real cast member, and was only paid for her appearance at the reunion special.

She was Thomas Ravenel’s girlfriend, and Thomas is never returning to Bravo.

(Thomas will, in fact, stand trial for sexual assault based upon the chilling allegations made by his children’s former nanny)

Patricia received a lot of cheering after her shady tweet.

Others, however, felt that she was taking things too hard.

“Quit being a bully,” demanded one Twitter denizen. “Move on.”

“You’re too old to continue these shenanigans,” the tweeter told Patricia.

(Poking at Patricia Altschul’s age isn’t just rude — it also makes your words about bullying sound a little hollow)

Patricia dismissed that particular tweet as sour grapes — possibly from Ashley herself under a fake social media account.

Despite the implication that Ashley never had the option of returning to Southern Charm, her Instagram post explained her reasoning.

“I’ve been blessed with an amazing career, family, & friends,” she wrote.

“And,” Ashley continued. “I don’t want to put those things in jeopardy for a reality tv show.”

“Honestly,” she shared. “I considered filming again because I desperately want to tell my side of the story.”

“But after experiencing how unfair the editing process can be,” she explained. “I don’t think I’ll ever have a fair shot.”

“I appreciate you all following me throughout this journey,” Ashley concluded.

We’re glad that Ashley seems to have found some peace.

Given the damage to her image as well as the visibly detrimental effects that stardom exacted upon her health, maybe it’s best that Ashley not return.

(Not everyone should be a reality star, and that is perfectly okay — Ashley is a registered nurse)

There are conflicting reports over who made this call.

Ashley and some sources say that she was offered the chance to return to the show and try to work her way into the inner circle.

Other sources — and Patricia Altschul —  say that she was never considered, because she was never really a star.

As you can see, the other ladies of Southern Charm are getting on just fine without Ashley.

But we don’t think that it’s fair to call Patricia’s words “bullying.”

It’s a shady tweet from a reality star to her former co-star.

If it were racist or homophobic or misogynistic or something along those lines, maybe.

Instead, it was one woman who appeared on a reality show mocking another. That goes with the territory.

Also, it’s worth noting that Patricia was overtly friendly to Ashley when she first joined the show.

It was Ashley’s behavior during her brief stint on Southern Charm that made Patricia feel repulsed.

Amy Duggar Shades Family Members for Having Kids Too Soon

The last time we wrote about Amy Duggar, we said that her famous family members had just recently allowed her back into their lives.

Such a re-entrance may have been short-lived, however.

Why do we say this?

Because Amy has come out with some serious fire for her supposed loved ones!

Often considered the black sheep of her strict and conservative family, Amy once posed nude on Twitter.

Even worse in the eyes of her cousins, aunts and uncles, Amy has been married for three years — and she has no kids!

Zero. Zilch. None at all.

While this may seem impossible to believe for anyone with the last name Duggar, Amy tells Radar Online that she has a simple explanation for why she and husband Dillon have decided to wait.

“I didn’t want to limit myself by just getting pregnant right off the bat and not exploring the rest of what my life could be,” Duggar says simply.

At least it sounds simple to us.

Plenty of husbands and wives want to travel a bit or just enjoy each other’s company for awhile before their world gets taken over by children.

It’s a reasonable position for anyone to take. Anyone not named Duggar, that is.

As regular Hollywood Gossip readers surely know well, Jinger Duggar, Joy-Anna Duggar and Kendra Duggar ALL gave birth to their first child in 2018.

They each got pregnant basically as soon as they tied the knot and were permitted, per family rules, to engage in intercourse with their significant others.

Duggar females basically exist simply to get married and then to procreate as often as possible.

But Amy is focused on her new clothing boutique at the moment and isn’t desperate to become a mother.

It will almost definitely happen at some point; she just doesn’t understand the immediacy.

“Babies are on our brain for sure,” Amy says of her and her husband.

But she wants to make sure her professional life is in order first and that she is as ready as one can be to take the journey to motherhood before actually doing so.

What a crazy concept, right?!?

“I want to be settled. I think it’s boutique, and then a baby,” said the former reality star, explaining how she wants to successfully launch her business before dedicating herself to a tiny human being.

She also wants to make sure her relationship can handle it.

Having a baby is a really big deal!

It can destroy a marriage if two people are not on the same page.

“I want to have this really great foundation with my husband so that when my baby turns 18 years old, I’m not learning how to love my husband all over again,” says Amy.

We hate to break it to you, Amy, but such logic likely just got you kicked out of the family again.

We’re guessing you’re cool with that, though.

Cassie Ventura Shades Diddy on Social Media After Breakup

The on-again, off-again romance between Cassie Ventura and Diddy seemed like it would never end. 

Now, however, it seems that they’re off-again for good (for now). 

And Cassie has something to say about it — in the form of a cryptic message that she posted to Instagram.

Cassie and Diddy used to break up all of the time.

One time their breakup resulted in the police being called after Diddy ran off to snoop through Cassie’s phone, but they got back together.

Now, though, it looks like they’re on the outs.

In fact, Diddy is dating again.

He was reportedly spotted with model Jocelyn Chew at Drake and Migos’ concert in Los Angeles less than two weeks ago.

It appears that Cassie doesn’t care for that at all.

Cassie Ventura ig f these hoes censored

Taking to Instagram, she shared a message that many perceived to be a jab at Diddy.

Or, more precisely, it may be a jab at any woman who might appear on his arm or flock to try to date him after this final split.

“F–k these hoes,” Cassie shared.

Of course, it may be that she was just sharing a post directed at no one in particular, or very vaguely at people she doesn’t like.

(Like when any Millennail or Gen Z person participates in that “it’s over for you hoes” meme)

Naturally, a lot of her fans and followers connected her words with Diddy and their still recent split.

Cassie and Diddy have been romantically linked since 2007, but went public with their romance in 2012.

Either way, that is a very long time to be entangled.

According to a report by People, this split didn’t leave the two of them on bad terms.

“The decision was amicable and they remain friends,” the insider says.

Remaining friends is well and good, but sometimes those bitter feelings rise up when the other party moves on.

“Cassie is going to focus on her music and acting career,” the source reports.

Reports say that, all appearances to the contrary, Diddy is still single.

We don’t expect either Cassie or Diddy to directly comment on this.

They were famously reluctant to speak on their relationship while they were together, so we don’t expect that to change post-split.

But there are little signs that may indicate that there’s more animosity than sources are willing to disclose.

For example, Cassie has unfollowed Diddy on Instagram.

That could point to bad blood … or to her disinterest in seeing her famous ex’s face pop up on her social media.

So far, all that we really know is that their breakup is confirmed. That’s it.

But consider that Cassie gave Diddy the best years of her life — she is believed to have dated him from her early twenties and she is now 32.

With that in mind, it is easy to imagine that there may be some resentments, even if they are never voiced publicly.

In the mean time, fans and followers are going to read into every little move that either of them make — in real life and on social media.

We think that Cassie probably knows that.

Maci Bookout Poses with Co-Stars, Shades Farrah Abraham

Maci Bookout is ready to move forward.

But not before she takes a quick look back.

Shortly after the first promo for Teen Mom OG Season 8 went viral, the long-time MTV personality spent a night out in New York City with her old and new co-stars.

As you can see below, Bookout clearly had an enjoyable time with Catelynn Lowell, Amber Portwood, Cheyenne Floyd and Bristol Palin.

What about Farrah Abraham?

She is no longer a part of the case, due to her affiliation with amateur pornography, and Maci couldn't help but get a small shot in at her frenemy prior to moving on with these new ladies.

See what we mean right here and now…

1. Here They Are!

Here is a photo of the new quintet out and about; with ex-The Challenge participant Floyd now part of the crew, along Sarah Palin’s controversial daughter, Bristol Palin.

2. Fare Thee Well, Farrah?

2 over 1
Or not, Maci basically said in her caption to this photo, which reads: “awesome day working with these beauties #tmogfamily #twoisbetterthanone.”

3. Did You Catch It?

Mace and farrah
#twoisbetterthanone. We don’t see any way to interpret that hashtag aside from Maci saying that these TWO new additions far outweigh the ONE cast member who is now gone. And that would be Farrah.

4. This Wasn’t Maci’s First Dig at Farrah’s Expense

Appearing on Kailyn Lowry’s podcast in August, Maci was asked about Bristol joining Teen Mom OG. Simply put, “anyone is better than Farrah,” Bookout replied.

5. Farrah Claps Back

A little, at least. After learning that Maci would appear on the show Naked and Afraid, in the wake of Abraham getting fired for being naked on Web cams, Abraham said of Bookout: “The irony of this is hilarious. Hopefully she has fun on her pornographic show; [it] sounds tragic.”

6. What About Bristol and Cheyenne?

Maci doesn’t have anything negative to say about them, only about the way producers went about hiring these newbies and informing the other cast members.
