Jill Duggar SHOCKS with Nose Piercing!

It’s barely been two weeks since Jill Duggar was spotted wearing pants, and she’s already flaunting another of the Duggar family’s strict rules.

(Good for her!)

This time, it’s something that might startle even a more mainstream family: a facial piercing!

The Duggar family is famous for their strict, fringe lifestyle.

They’re part of the “quiverfull” movement, believing that they need to produce as many offspring as possible to effectively serve as weapons against the “evils” of, you know, other people.

Jim Bob Duggar and his family believe that women are effectively the property of their fathers until they are married off to a suitable husband, who then controls her life.

Before marriage, the Duggars are only allowed to go courting with chaperones, and famously aren’t allowed to front hug before they tie the knot.

They’re diehard Christian fundamentalists who believe that society has been “corrupted” by non-Christian values.

Which is why they don’t really allow traditional entertainment in their homes. In many ways, their children are entirely dependent upon family and their likeminded religious community for socialization.

Which means that the children don’t really understand that there’s another way to live — not in anything more than an abstract way — until they’re older.

By then, they’re already thoroughly immersed in the Duggar way of life and might be afraid to change anything.

But we sometimes see little hints of rebellion from the Duggar girls.

For many monhts, now, Jinger Duggar has dared to wear pants. We don’t know that it’s technically a progressive move, since her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, allows it.

Vuolo famously stated that: “Jesus does not save people to make them wear skirts.”

That’s a very succinct theological view and it comes into total conflict with Jim Bob’s beliefs.

Much more recently, Jill Duggar’s been sporting pants. Outside of the Duggar family, that wouldn’t have been controversial since the dawn of the 20th Century. But it’s kind of a big deal.

But not as big of a deal as this:

That is not an unfortunate and strangely lustrous pimple on her nose.

That is a piercing.

Specifically, a stud.

Normally we’d be making a joke along the lines of: “When Michelle Duggar told you to go out there and get yourself a stud, this isn’t what she meant.”

But we cannot imagine Michelle Duggar saying anything of the sort, even in jest.

A nose piercing isn’t just out of the ordinary for the Duggars, it’s very likely forbidden.

The Duggar’s are opposed to body-modification like tattoos, what with one’s body being a temple and all of that.

We can’t think of a time that they’ve specifically railed against nose piercings, but the only piercings that we’ve ever seen on one of the Duggar girls has been their ears. And just the single spot, too.

Sometimes, nose rings are a sign of rebellion, particularly for people who have never gotten to make real choices before. But usually they’re just decoration, because it’s that person’s body and they can decorate it however they like.

As you can see from this sampling, fan reactions were mixed:

“Good girls going wild a nose peircing ????”

“1ST JEANS NOW A NOSE STUD GOOD FOR YOU JILL”

“Wow u have a nose ring??!!”

“LOVIN’ the nose ring!!!!!!”

“Leviticus 19:28, ‘Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.'”

“Love the nose stud! Glad you realized that you can wear jeans and have a piercing and still be a Christian.”

“Put those eyes back in your head before they run away from you!!! Stupid nose piercing. Did you use your grifting money to buy it? Tell your freeloading, grifter husband to get a job!!!”

We have to admit that, though we don’t agree with that last one, the jab at Derick made us chuckle. Especially since Derick Dillard was fired for his ongoing tirades against Jazz Jennings.

Anyway, good for Jill for decorating her face however she likes.

Joy-Anna Duggar Shocks Fans With HUGE Baby Bump!

As you’ve likely heard by now, Joy-Anna Duggar is pregnant with her first child.

And the question of exactly when she conceived has unexpectedly developed into the latest Duggar scandal.

According to her family’s official timeline, Joy got pregnant during the early days of her honeymoon, immediately after she married Austin Forsyth back in late May.

That would put her at roughly five months pregnant.

Based on her latest photo, however, many fans now believe that Joy is either carrying multiples, or she’s much further along than five months.

We don’t have much to go on, as while her sisters posted regular Instagram updates during their pregnancies, Joy-Anna has surprisingly taken a hiatus from social media in recent months.

Fans believe it’s part of an attempt to conceal the fact that Joy got pregnant much earlier than her family claims, but thus far those efforts have proven unsuccessful.

That’s the first photo of Joy’s baby bump to emerge in the past month.

Interestingly, the image didn’t appear on one of the Duggars’ social media pages, but on the Instagram page of a family friend named Ashley Salyer.

The Duggars still seem to be doing their best to prevent new photos of Joy’s belly from going public.

Prior to Salyer’s post, the only recent photos of Joy were a close up that showed only her face, and a candid baby bump photo that appeared on a Facebook fan page.

Of course, all the secrecy is lending credence to what had, until recently, seemed a wild rumor.

Joy’s efforts to keep her distance from social media is causing once skeptical fans to reexamine the evidence and concede that there’s a good chance Joy may have gotten pregnant before marriage.

For one thing, Joy and Austin admitted to breaking courtship rules prior to their engagement.

But that doesn’t necessarily mean they engaged in premarital sex.

Joy-Anna’s family is so strict that unmarried couples can violate the rules of courtship simply by holding hands for too long or spending time together without a chaperone.

Still, the fact that Joy and Austin alluded to breaking the rules but didn’t go into specifics might point to a premarital moment of weakness.

Also suspicious is the fact that Joy and Austin rescheduled their wedding, deciding to exchange vows in May of this year, rather than October.

Could it be that Joy broke the news to her parents, and they scrambled to make new arrangements in hopes of hiding the fact that she’d gotten pregnant out of wedlock?

If so, you can be sure the Duggars will continue to try and keep that secret buried.

But based on the latest photo of Joy, they may not be able to for much longer.

Jinger Duggar Shocks Fans With Jeremy Vuolo PDA

Back in November of 2016, Jinger Duggar married Jeremy Vuolo in front of 1,500 of her closest friends and relatives.

Now, as they approach their one-year anniversary, the young couple is still going strong.

But while Jinger has developed into the same sort of doting wife as her mother and older sisters, she’s also undergone a number of other changes that no one in her family would have ever predicted.

These days, Jinger is known as her family’s resident rebel.

And while her acts of defiance may seem incredibly tame to those of us outside of Tontitown, Arkansas, within Jinger’s inner circle, there’s been much fretting and pearl-clutching over the 23-year-old’s apparent disinterest in following in the footsteps of the other women in her family.

Jinger’s most obvious form of rebellion has been the rejection of her family’s strict dress code.

Before Jinger got hitched, all of Jim Bob and Michelle’s daughters continued to wear below-the-knee skirts at all times (even while playing sports or engaging in other outdoor activities) even after leaving the house.

Jinger not only wears pants, she’s been known to rock shorts on occasion and short (by Duggar standards) skirts:

That’s a photo that Jinger uploaded on Instagram this week, and while her hemline might fall a little higher than her parents would like, it’s a much more subtle form of rebellion that has fans talking.

Jinger captioned the photo with lyrics from the 1965 song “L-O-V-E” by Nat King Cole:

“L is for the way you look at me O is for the only one I see V is very, very extraordinary E is even more than anyone that you adore can,” she wrote.

Sure, it’s not like Jinger is quoting Cardi B, but many longtime Duggar obsessives are still taken aback by her choice of song.

Why? Well, Jinger’s family generally eschews all forms of secular music.

Those familiar with the Duggars’ belief system say that non-religious music isn’t expressly forbidden, but note that young people are “strongly discouraged” to stick with hymns, and even Christian rock is considered potentially problematic.

“A song other then church music? Jinger u rebel!!” wrote one Instagram follower on Jinger’s photo.

“Gasp you’ve heard of this song?” commented another.

Like we said, Jinger’s not exactly scrawling Slayer lyrics on her walls in goat’s blood-red paint, but she’s still sending a message that the life she plans to live is not the one her parents mapped out for her.

Demi Moore Shocks Tonight Show Audience, Reveals Missing Front Teeth

Demi Moore appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Monday to promote her upcoming movie, Rough Night.

But it was a rough photo the actress showed off to the audience that has the Internet talking today.

And what users are saying goes something like this:

WTH happened?!?

“You sent us a photo and it’s the most insane thing I’ve ever seen,” Fallon said at one point in his interview. “How did this happen?”

Fallon then held up a picture of Moore on her sofa at home.

At least we assume it was a picture of Moore.

One would be forgiven for being confused, considering the woman in the photograph was missing her front two teeth.

“I sheared off my front teeth,” the 54-year old actress said simply.

Well, yes. That much is apparent.

But HOW?

“I’d love to say it was skateboarding or something really kind of cool, but I think I think it’s something that’s important to share, because I think it’s literally, probably after heart disease, one of the biggest killers in in America, which is stress,” she explained, addingL:

“Stress sheared off my front teeth. But, in an effort to get ready for you, I wanted to make sure my teeth were in.”

Moore went on to say she really is missing “both” of her front teeth, although “the picture is only minus one.”

The actress joked that her kids “love” her toothless appearance “because they think it makes me look more vulnerable and more human.”

We guess we can understand that.

Demi Moore is one of the most beautiful actresses of all-time. That can be intimidating for anyone to encounter, even for her children.

In all seriousness, though, Moore dropped the stress-related PSA story and said she “literally knocked [the teeth] out” not very long ago.

“It was almost like it fell out and my warranty was up. I swear!” she said.

“Thank God for modern dentistry. All of you who go out and practice modern dentistry – thank God!”

Moore proceeded to shared a video of herself acting all silly on Snapchat, explaining that it was filmed at her dentist’s office.

Drugs can be a wonderful thing, you know?

“People have a hard time at the dentist,” she told the host, “And I think it can be a lot of fun.”

Incredibly, this is the second time Moore has lost a tooth.

Way back in October of 2010, during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show – filmed while she was still married to Ashton Kutcher – Moore told a similar tale of what transpired.

“Thank God for modern dentistry,” she said at that time as well, continuing:

“I had a bad bite and knocked my own front tooth out, which basically fell out into my hand, and I just thought my warranty was up. That was it.

“I called out and said, ‘Baby, my tooth has fallen out of my head.'”

At the time, Moore saids he was clenching her teeth and was “a little too tense” in hindsight.

“I was sitting at my desk and I felt something drop and I caught it and looked down, and there was my tooth.”

These things happen? We guess?

And when you’re Demi Moore, apparently they happen more than once.

Young Girls Shocks Judges With Amazing Vocals on America’s Got Talent

America's Got Talent prides itself in bringing us the best talent from all over the United States of America. 

While some people are getting tired of singing competitions, the ratings juggernaut has a good track record with singers. 

The latest shocker comes in the form of a 9-year-old girl from Atlanta, Georgia who aspires to be just like Whitney Houston. 

Her name is Angelica Hale, and she was surprisingly not shy about chatting with the judges before her performance. 

"I'm nine-years-old, and I just found out that I'm going to be a big sister," she said to the crowd with a grin on her face. 

The young girl then went on to chat about how happy she was to be on the show. 

"I'm so happy to be here, because, like, I've been watching your show on Youtube and now I feel, like, like I'm in it!"

The judges and audience seemed taken with the young girl's confidence, but nothing could prepare them for the performance the youngster was about to put on for them. 

Simply put, it was breathtaking. 

She performed Andra Day's "Rise Up." The vocals were there. Something tells us the kid is going to get her wish and be a superstar one day. 

Simon looked away at the beginning of the performance, as though he was waiting for the child to not hit the huge notes of the song. 

His facial expression changed dramatically as her voice rose throughout. He was probably sizing her up for a recording contract. 

Hey, Simon is one of the best people in the biz. He has a wealth of hit artists under his label.

Kylie Jenner Crashes High School Prom, Shocks Everyone

Kylie Jenner is all about giving back these days. 

That’s about all we can muster after the Keeping Up with the Kardashian star’s latest act of goodwill. The first act was ditching her much older boyfriend, Tyga, who was pretty much only with her to cash in on the Kardashian brand. 

The 19-year-old reality TV star accompanied Albert Ochoa to his High School prom in Sacramento on Saturday night. As you can probably expect, the other kids in attendance went crazy at the prospect of having one of most talked about young celebrities in attendance. 

Kyle took her pal, Jordyn Woods along for the momentous occasion and it sure looks like the event was a roaring success with everyone who went. 

Ochoa’s sister posted a video on Twitter of Kylie and her brother hugging, as everyone down below could only look on in awe. 

After the embrace, Kylie turned to smile at everyone before waving a pitchfork and demanding that they all signed petitions to keep Keeping Up with the Kardashians on the air. 

We kid, but we don’t know whether she was trying to plug the flagging E! reality series. 

One fan responded to the above video by saying, “At least it’s not Tyga’s old ass.” 

These kids sure have a way with words. 

It was confirmed just last week that Kylie had landed her own E! reality series in the wake of her apparent split with Tyga. 

With sources revealing the pair have not formally split up, but are not together, could it all be a ruse to drum up interest for her TV series?

It’s hard to imagine Tyga not finding a way to muscle his way in to try and get some screen time to show off his horrible music. 

If Blac Chyna was part of a reality TV series thanks to her relationship with a Kardashian, why should Tyga not? 

That’s probably his chain of thought as he thinks of how great it would feel to be able to sell over one-hundred albums in a week. 

What do you think about Kylie’s actions?

Sound off below!

Hoda Kotb Shocks Fans, Reveals Adopted Baby Girl

Hoda Kotb finally has something in common with Madonna.

No, the Today Show co-host has not said anything of late about a desire to blow up the White House.

But Hoda has come out and surprised fans by revealing that she just adopted a baby girl!

And here’s a photo of Kotb and that baby girl, who is named Haley Joy Kotb!

The Today anchor revealed on Tuesday morning that the newborn entered the world on February 14, prompting her to gush over the phone on air:

“She’s a Valentine’s baby so she’s a little nugget. She is the love of my life!”

The precious arrival thrilled and stunned Hoda’s famous colleagues, except for close friend Kathie Lee Gifford, who knew about the adoption a few days ago… yet somehow managed to keep the news a secret.

“I’ve got the biggest mouth in the world and I’ve said zilch,” Gifford said. “Hoda, we are thrilled for you, sweetheart. You were made to be a mom.”

Matt Lauer, of course, agreed with this assessment.

“This is such fantastic news. This little girl, Haley, is the luckiest girl on the planet,” he said, adding:

“You are going to be one of the most fantastic moms I can ever imagine.”

Hoda Kotb congrats

Kotb is 52 years old.

She moved in with her boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, last year and  was previously married to former University of New Orleans tennis coach Burzis Kanga.

The couple divorced in 2007 after two years as husband and wife; they had no children together.

“Can’t. Stop. Crying. So thrilled for you , @hodakotb,” wrote Jenna Hager Bush on Twitter. “Haley Joy’s life will be defined by *JOY* with you as a mama. Love!”

Added Savannah Guthrie:

“Overjoyed for @hodakotb and her little comet Haley – a brilliant flash of light for our world. Love love love and LOVE.”

As you can see below, they weren’t the only people happy for Kotb and her little one:

tweets about Hoda Kotb

Last week, Hoda hinted at the reason behind her recent time off by sharing inspirational quotes on her social media account.

“And suddenly you just know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings,” read one of the messages, while another read:

“For all the things my hands have held, the best by far is you.”

And Kotb continued down this same motivational path this morning, updating her Instagram page with a photo that had the following words written on it:

“And then my soul saw you and it kind of went ‘Oh there you are. I’ve been looking for you.'”

We’re so very happy for Hoda!

She is one of several celebrities who have become a parent via adoption.

Oscar Nominations 2017: Shocks! Snubs! Screwjobs!

The nominations are in…

… and the complaining can now begin!

Earlier today, the world was made aware of which movies, actors and actresses will compete at the 2017 Academy Awards.

But we're more focused right now on which movies, actors and actresses will NOT be competing. That is, who got snubbed the hardest?!?

And these nominees are…

1. Amy Adams, Arrival

Amy adams arrival
What?!? We thought she’d actually win Best Actress… and she’s not even nominated?!? We adore Meryl Streep, but she doesn’t need to be up for every single role she takes on. Come on now!

2. Sully

Sully
Clint Eastwood directed. Tom Hanks starred. And yet nothing at all came this drama’s way.

3. Silence

Silence
Over the last 16 years, the only Martin Scorsese movie that failed to earn a Best Picture no was Shutter Island. We can now add Silence to the list.

4. Annette Bening, 20th Century Women

Annette bening 20th century women
Sorry, Steep. But Bening was more deserved for her portrait here of an eccentric single mom.

5. Deadpool

Deadpool
Didn’t the Oscars expand the Best Picture category to 10 potential nominees in order to include more commercial films such as Deadpool? Why make that move and then NOT nominate this fun superhero flick?

6. Rogue One

Rogue one
We also would have accepted Rogue One as the mainstream movie nominated for Best Picture.
