Amy Duggar Slams Derick Dillard: Try Being a Nice Person!

Amy Duggar is urging her online followers – and Jill Duggar’s husband Derick Dillard – to extend love and compassion instead of hate.

What a novel concept, we know. Jarring.

The Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars cast member and niece of Jim Bob Duggar took to Twitter to share an uplifting message:

“You might not agree with someone or their lifestyle but you SHOULD be compassionate and show God’s love regardless to everyone.”

There’s no doubt what sparked this.

Amy’s tweet comes a week after Derick Dillard was fired by TLC following a second, unprompted attack on fellow network star Jazz Jennings.

Derick, the husband of Amy’s cousin Jill, has some serious problems with 17-year-old Jazz, the transgender star of I Am Jazz on TLC.

Dillard got into it with Twitter user @_mastercthulhu, saying, “I pity Jazz 4 those who take advantage of him in order 2 promote their agenda.”

That includes “the parents who allow these kinds of decisions 2 be made by a child … It’s sad that ppl would use a juvenile this way.”

“Jazz is being taken advantage of, as part of a larger agenda. I really have nothing against the kid and wish him all the best in life,” he adds.

“I just hate seeing him used this way.”

Note the inaccurate pronouns as part of Dillard’s attack on Jazz Jennings, which came out of nowhere and wasn’t even the first of its kind.

Derick’s outspoken and controversial quotes along these lines had already been causing friction between the Duggars and the network.

That tension has now boiled over.

After Amy’s message, Der’s Twitter adversary @_mastercthulhu applauded her for being respectful to others, responding:

“This is what I was trying to say to Derick. It’s okay that you don’t agree with the trans community, that’s your opinion and that’s fine.”

“But you can’t bully and be mean to others this is coming from an atheist! I’m glad you understand what it means to be a good Christian, Amy.”

“I have friends that are gay and I still love them as a person,” Amy replied to her new Twitter supporter. “Thank you for following.”

Following his initial criticism of I Am Jazz, a reality show which he called an “oxymoron” based on the transgender “myth,” Derick wrote:

“No one – women, men, children or transgender persons – should be subjected to any form of exploitation or targeted for discrimination.”

“Transsexual and transgendered persons are entitled to the same human and civil rights as others.”

Amy Tweet to Fan

“Recognizing these rights, however, does not mean that we must accept that hormones and surgery transform men into women and women into men.”

“Or,” he added, “that persons who self-identify as members of the opposite sex, are what they subjectively claim to be.” 

“What an oxymoron. A ‘reality’ show which follows a non-reality. ‘Transgender’ is a myth. Gender is not fluid. It’s ordained by God.”

Obviously, this set off a firestorm.

Some of Dillard’s fans lauded these comments, but his network bosses were far from impressed. TLC released a statement:

“We want to let our viewers know that Derick Dillard has not participated in Counting On for months and the network has no plans to feature him in the future.”

“We want to reiterate that Derick’s personal statements do not reflect the views of the network,” the statement said in no uncertain terms.

It concluded, referencing his target: “TLC is proud to share the story of Jazz Jennings and her family and will continue to do so.”

A low-key firing, but pretty direct nonetheless; Jill may be fired from Counting On as well, apparently, based on these comments.

Jazz herself responded indirectly to the controversy, not naming Derick specifically but clearly referring to him when she wrote:

“In the face of constant ignorance and hatred I prefer to disregard negative opinions and continue moving forward with love.”

Sounds like a message Amy Duggar would embrace.

Eve SLAMS Nicki Minaj: What a Bad Role Model!

Despite her best (read: most naked) efforts this week, Nicki Minaj did not break the Internet.

But she did manage to break Eve’s heart just a little bit.

On Wednesday, the latest Paper Magazine cover went viral, causing nearly every male on the Internet to cross his legs awkwardly and squirm in his seat* as a result of Minaj posing topless.

(*Because he got an erection.)

Not merely topless, however.

Minaj is also on her knees in the same photo, tongue out, teasing that she’s about to provide some oral sex to… well… herself.

We can’t really do the set-up justice.

Click on the photo below to see it for yourself. (Yes, sorry, you must click to view it uncensored. We’re a family website, people!)

Minaj teased on the cover that she wanted to “Break the Internet” with her pictorial, just as Kim Kardashian did back when she posed seductively for Paper three years ago.

She failed to literally do so, of course.

And, according to Eve, she has also failed to provide a positive example for women around the world.

“I worked with Nicki, I got to know her on Barbershop… she’s a nice person, she’s an amazing rapper, and as a lyricist I respect her,” Eve said a new co-host on The Talk yesterday.

HOWEVER, she added:

“As a woman, from my point of view, personally, I would not be able to do that.”

Eve went on to generally reference the climate/culture these days – where sexual harassment accusations are flying all around Hollywood – as the reason why.

“I think in this climate, it’s not good. I think every artist has a right to express themselves however they want to express themselves and I respect that as well.

“For me personally, as I started coming up in the business, I started realizing that young girls were looking up to me and younger people were looking up to me, and that, not that you want to be a role model, but it becomes what you become, it is what you are.”

Eve continued:

“As I’ve gotten older … I’d just rather be a voice that’s uplifting… I can be a voice for those girls that might not have a voice, in a different way without showing myself off …

“For the Nicki fans, I love her, respect her. Go women in hip hop. It’s not my thing. I just don’t think it’s right. Personally. Period. That’s it.”

Eve is qualifying her comments a lot here.

And she’s saying some nice things about the artist.

But she’s basically bashing Minaj for being a bad role model, there’s no real way around that.

Meanwhile, fellow The Talk cohosts Sheryl Underwood and Sharon Osbourne echoed Eve’s statements and both said it should more about the music for Nicki.

“It’s about your music, not about your love of looking a certain way,” Osbourne said, adding:

“It’s great you’re a young woman, and you’re also a talented young woman. You don’t need to take it down to this level.”

Do you agree?

Ponder this question while you examine what folks on Twitter have said about Minaj’s cover:

Transgender Model SLAMS Briana Renee, Estranged Husband as Totally Dysfunctional”

As previously detailed, Briana Renee and Matt Grundhoffer are getting a divorce.

News of this split comes as a surprise to exactly no one who has been following the private life of the Little Women: LA star and her mate.

But it’s an especially obvious and welcome development to a transgender model named Plastic Martyr.

(Editor’s Note: We somehow doubt this is her real name.)

In response to Renee confirming she is finally leaving Grundhoffer, following many months of contention as a result of the latter’s admitted infidelity, Martyr slammed the estranged couple when asked to comment by Radar Online.

“If this isn’t all done for most publicity – because they are delusional and attention-hungry – then I say bravo,” the 28-year old said.

She then exclaimed triumphantly:

“The most dysfunctional relationship is over!”

Martyr (pictured below) was actually featured on Little Woman: LA after Grundhoffer was caught sexting her

But whatever feelings Renee’s husband apparently had for the model are most definitely NOT reciprocated.

In this same Radar interview, she refers to Grundhoffer as a “cheating son of a bitch” who “fetishized” her with his disgusting messages.

While it may be clear that Renee and Grundhoffer were not meant to be, their divorce is still unfortunate for one very precious reason:

The stars are parents to a 16-month old son.

They each also have a child from previous relationships that they had been raising together, which explains why the two are actually still living in the same house.

While sleeping in separate bedrooms, Briana and Matt are trying to figure out how to best move ahead with their break-up without damaging these children. 

But Martyr doesn’t have any sympathy.

She says Renee “will do anything and step on anyone to get ahead.”

It’s unclear why she has such a harsh opinion of the short Lifetime star, but her connection with Grundhoffer goes back to July of 2016.

During that time, he sent the model naked photos and made sexual advances toward her via Insgtagram.

Shortly afterward, Plastic guest-starred on the reality show and got into a pretty heated argument with Tonya Banks.

It certainly sounds as if Renee and Grundhoffer are making the right decision in going their separate ways, but a friend of the couple doesn’t think the split will last.

This person tells Radar:

“She’ll back with him a week. She can’t stand to be alone.”

Taylor Swift Slams Kanye West HARD in New Song!

Today’s the big day, friends — the day Taylor Swift’s new album drops!

Or, well, it already did drop, because it’s not 1999 and you don’t have to beg your mom to take you to the mall after school to pick the CD up.

But you know what we mean.

Right at this very moment, you can hop on iTunes or run to the Target or whatever you prefer and purchase Reputation, and isn’t that so exciting?!

Even if you don’t love the smooth sounds of Swifty, it’s always fun to analyze all the lyrics and figure out who she’s singing about.

And that’s exactly what we’re going to do today.

So far, at least two of the tracks seem to reference Taylor’s feud with Kanye West — “I Did Something Bad” and “This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.”

“I never trust a narcissist,” she sings in the first verse of that first song, “but they love me. So I play ‘em like a violin and I make it look oh so easy.”

“‘Cause for every lie I tell them, they tell me three. This is how the world works, now all he thinks about is me.”

It’s a little vague, but then she sings “If a man talks sh-t, then I owe him nothing. I don’t regret it one bit ‘cause he had it coming.”

That’s what’s making people think this part of the song could be about Kanye, because we all know he talked a fair bit of sh-t about her.

But then again, one could also say that Calvin Harris did the same thing last summer after their breakup, you know?

In the bridge, Taylor sings “They’re burning all the witches, even if you aren’t one. They got their pitchforks and proof, their receipts and reasons.”

That part could also be about several things — her reputation did take a lot of hits in the past year or so, hence, you know, this whole entire album.

But could it be about Kanye and Kim Kardashian? With the line about “receipts,” it’s definitely possible.

Because when you think of Taylor Swift and receipts, you pretty much definitely think of that phone call between Taylor and Kanye that Kim recorded and leaked.

You remember — Kanye released his song “Famous,” the one that contained that lyric about having sex with Taylor because “I made that bitch famous.”

Taylor was very offended, but later Kim released a recording of a phone call that proved that Kanye had run the lyric by her before recording the song, and that she was cool with it.

After that, Taylor clarified that she was cool with the sex lyric and the thing about how he made her famous, but her issue was the word “bitch,” which he didn’t run by her during their talk.

It seemed weird at the time, because in a line like “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous,” the idea seems much more offensive than that one word.

But that’s Taylor’s story and she’s sticking to it, and even if “I Did Something Bad” doesn’t reference Kanye, “This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” almost certainly does.

In this one, she begins by describing “big parties” and “feeling so Gatsby for that whole year” before asking someone “Why’d you have to rain on my parade?”

In the chorus, she sings “This is why we can’t have nice things, darling, because you break them. I had to take them away.”

“This is why we can’t have nice things, honey. Did you think I wouldn’t hear all the things you said about me? This is why we can’t have nice things.”

Again, this could be about Kanye or an ex-boyfriend, but it’s the second verse that makes it pretty clear that good ol’ Yeezus is to blame for all this.

Here, just check it out in its entirety:

It was so nice being friends again / There I was, giving you a second chance / But then you stabbed me in the back while shaking my hand / And therein lies the issue

Friends don’t try to trick you / Get you on the phone and mind-twist you / And so I took an ax to a mended fence

But I’m not the only friend you’ve lost lately / If only you weren’t so shady

See, because there was a period when she was friendly again with Kanye after he ruined her special moment at the VMAs all those years ago. She did give him a second chance.

Then he released “Famous” and hurt her feelings when she thought they were cool — he “stabbed [her] in the back,” so to speak.

The “get you on the phone and mind-twist” you is what makes this painfully obvious, because even on the small chance this isn’t about Kanye, she had to know what everyone would think with a pointed reference like that.

And then “I’m not the only friend you’ve lost lately,” well, we know what happened with Jay Z, don’t we?

In the bridge, Taylor gives “a toast to my real friends, they don’t care about that he-said-she-said,” and also to her “baby,” who “ain’t reading what they call me lately.”

“And here’s to my mama,” she continues, “had to listen to all this drama. And here’s to you, ‘cause forgiveness is a nice thing to do.”

But then she laughs and says “I can’t even say it with a straight face.”

It doesn’t look like she’s letting this go anytime soon, does it?

At least it’s more fun this way.

O.J. Simpson Slams Caitlyn Jenner: Enjoy Life As an Old Lady!

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, O.J. Simpson was released from prison last month after serving nine years on robbery charges.

Needless to say, some folks were less than thriled with the thought of living in a world in which the Juice is on the loose.

Obviously, there are the families of O.J.’s alleged murder victims, and the Brown and Goldman families are probably more than a little about reports that Simpson tried to hire a hitman and have them killed during his time behind bars.

But O.J. burned a lot of bridges during his first stint as a free man, so the Browns and Goldmans aren’t alone in their antipathy toward the former football great.

The members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, for example, are no big fans of number 32.

Kris Jenner’s husband, Robert Kardashian, was a close friend of Simpson’s and the late attorney played an instrumental role in assembling the defense team for his double murder trial.

Both Kris and former husband Caitlyn Jenner have been vocally critical of O.J., and there have been reports that Kris and Caitlyn are afraid for their lives in the wake of Simpson’s release.

TMZ caugh up with Simpson in Las Vegas last night, and the topic of Caitlyn came up during a brief conversation.

O.J. attempted to keep the conversation lighthearted, but we’re guessing Jenner won’t be thrilled with what he had to say.

“I don’t know Caitlyn,” Simpson told the paparazzo.

“I’ve never met Caitlyn, as far as Bruce is concerned, I really didn’t know him that well.”

The reason to question the veracity of that remark, as O.J. vacationed with the Jenners in the late ’80s, but it’s what Simpson said next that’s really sparking controversy.

“If he wants to choose to live his life out as an old lady, instead of an old man, hey, women live longer,” Simpson joked.

“He may be on to something.”

A groaner, to be sure, but it could’ve been far worse.

After all, this is O.J. we’re talking about.

If you survive your encounter with him, then it could’ve been far worse.

Derick Dillard Slams Transgender Community AGAIN!

What’s wrong with Derick Dillard lately?

Serious question.

He’s always been very Duggar-y, with some extra conservative views that many find offensive, and of course there’s that ongoing nonsense with the way he and Jill Duggar keep asking for money from fans for no real reason.

But for the past couple of months or so, he’s been insisting on being even more awful than usual, and it’s getting kind of alarming.

For example, remember last week when he actually tweeted that the United States is “one of the least racist countries in the world”?

For real, that’s a thing he said. In 2017.

And then, in August, he made the unfortunate decision to bash Jazz Jennings, a fellow TLC reality star.

Jazz stars in a long-running show called I Am Jazz, which is all about her life as a 16-year-old transgender girl. She’s also an absolute doll.

But instead of being supportive of a co-worker, or, you know, instead of being a decent human being, Derick saw TLC tweet a promo for her show and decided to respond with the following:

“What an oxymoron… a ‘reality’ show which follows a non-reality. ‘Transgender’ is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it’s ordained by God.”

And then, when he started getting some criticism for that statement, he added “I want to be clear. I have nothing against him. I only have issue with the words and definitions being propagated here.”

Note the misgendering — Jazz is a “her.” not a “him,” and it would have taken literally nothing away from Derick to show her that little bit of respect.

But he didn’t because he’s awful, which is kind of the whole point we’re making here.

And now, two months after making those original statements against Jazz and the idea of being transgender in general, he’s doubling down on the awfulness.

Over the weekend, he retweeted a quote from Janice Raymond, a noted radical feminist activist who is also known to have extremely transphobic views.

“No one — women, men, children or transgender persons — should be subjected to any form of exploitation or targeted for discrimination,” the quote begins.

“Transsexual and transgendered persons are entitled to the same human and civil rights as others.”

The quote goes on to say that “Recognizing these rights, however, does not mean that we must accept that hormones and surgery transform men into women and women into men …”

“Or that persons who self-identify as members of the opposite sex, are what they subjectively claim to be.”

Derick retweeted all of that mess, and just in case he didn’t make himself clear, he also wrote “I agree with Janice Raymond on this.”

It’s just … why?

Even if he believes in these backwards views, and he’s made it very, very clear that he does, why does he feel the need to continue to talk about it?

It’s disrespectful, it’s cruel, and you know it’s got to be angering his employers.

His Twitter followers don’t get his game here, either.

“Derick, your ignorance is going to tweet yourself and your in laws out of a big TLC paycheck if you don’t just shut up,” one person advised him.

Another pointed out “The bible says thou shall not judge. Aren’t there much bigger things in life u should be preaching about? Did u feel good about hurting Jazz?”

One particularly sassy person turned Derick’s logic against him, asking “So you’d have no problem with me rejecting your subjective claims to be a good Christian, husband, father and overall decent human being?”

So Derick, your next step really isn’t that difficult …

Just shut up, OK?

50 Cent SLAMS Wendy Williams: I Hope Your Husband is Cheating!

Some of our younger readers may have never known 50 Cent as anything other than the unhinged lunatic who’s been known to punch women while on stage and threaten to murder his own son on Instagram.

But believe it or not, there was a time when Fif was regarded as one of the most important artists in hip-hop, producing hit after hit and collaborating with such luminaries as noted op-ed columnist Marshall B. Mathers.

Wendy Williams, on the other hand, has always been awful, which means you can just sit back and enjoy this feud, knowing that if you side with either party, you’re wrong.

It all started when Williams referenced the fact that 50 isn’t the greatest father during a monologue on her syndicated daytime show that’s somehow still a thing. 

She wasn’t referencing the aforementioned murder threat, or even the time 50 punched his other son.

Instead, Wendy was discussing 50’s famed ability for dodging child support, a skill he’s been honing for so long that his 21-year-old son Marquise recently released a diss track about Dad.

Mr. Cent, of course, responded with all the grace and charm that one expects from a guy who once posted a video of himself bullying a disabled teen:

50 Cent on Wendy Williams

50 posted the above photo, along with a caption reading:

“Yeah b-tch, you f-cking around in the wrong section … Every time you call me, I’m a show up.”

“He is Petty Spaghetti,” Williams responded on her show.

“He’s got real petty ways about him. I don’t really understand it because he’s got enough money to take care and support and whatnot.”

She added:

“I don’t care that you didn’t grow up with a father and that your mom, whatever happened when you were eight, and that you were shot nine times,” Williams said. “You’re 42. You got a 21 year old son. Get your life [together].”

Yes, it’s not every day that we can say Wendy Williams took the high road, but that’s clearly what’s happened here.

Sadly, 50 responded yet again, this time posting the above candid photo of Williams along with the following caption:

“Wendy williams just told me to get my life together, smh. Your husband is not a bad man he deserve a side chick for talking to you, you ugly motherf-cker Focus on your own shit bitch.”

Because that response wasn’t already classy enough, 50 concluded by promoting his latest club appearance.

“Oh yeah we in club LUST tonight you’re invited. LOL,” he wrote.

Remember that thing we said about not taking a side?

We changed our minds. Side with Wendy. Fif is beyond reason or redemption at this point.

Curse you for making us side with the most evil non-soap opera villain on daytime TV, 50 Cent!

Kailyn Lowry Slams Jenelle Evans’ Threat to Quit: Yeah, Right!

Teen Mom 2 might be about to lose one of its most controversial stars, as Jenelle Evans has threatened to quit. The Carolina Hurricane claims that MTV is making her and her husband look bad.

Who better to weigh in on that than one of Jenelle's costars?

In the video below, you'll see Kailyn Lowry share exactly what she thinks of that. And she gets in a nice burn about Jenelle in the process.

The Jenelle Evans rant that prompted all of this was Jenelle going on Instagram to threaten to quit Teen Mom 2.

"Yes, me and David have our ups and downs but yesterday’s episode was uncalled for."

We know that this will shock you, folks, but Jenelle's about to get super defensive about David Eason.

"Because David didn’t feel like explaining another argument or drama on camera they make it look as if David is hiding some weird ass s–t from the public as if he was hurting me in some way?!"

She needs to be aware that MTV can only edit so much — that fans are concerned about David Eason for a whole host of reasons?

"I have decided after this season I’m probably calling it quits for filming this show."

That's quite a threat.

"I told Morgan it’s getting to out of hand and it’s not healthy for us anymore, just harming us mentally."

Oh, is that what's wrong?

All jokes aside, Jenelle Evans had issues before MTV ever came into her life.

"They treat all of us as if we are in a freak show and in cages."

Right … it's a reality show. Except that she's not in a cage and is, in fact, getting paid. Pretty generously, as we understand it.

"WE aren’t human beings to @mtv what-so-ever. The first screenshot of the custody episode someone posted photoshopping a hand mark on my arm. The other screenshots are pictures I’ve taken myself from the same episode… and there aren’t any hand marks."

Jenelle really didn't make it clear whether she was accusing MTV of that or just a random fan.

But then Jenelle makes it sound like she's serious about threatening to leave … and describes the way that MTV can win her back.

"Once they treat me with respect I’ll be back, if they don’t I’ll be happy with the life I’ve got. I told them this last night."

It sure sounds like Jenelle is just trying to get them to sanitize her life, right?

Because even though reality shows are told through the lens of editing, you can only take things out or maybe take a few things out of context.

(Taking too many things out of context would make the story incoherent)

Try as they might, we don't see MTV's editors being able to add things in to Teen Mom 2.

Considering that David Eason makes Jenelle's own mother worried for Jenelle and for Jenelle's children, it looks like there's more than editing behind the way that fans are viewing their relationship.

But … either Jenelle doesn't see it, or she just doesn't want to see it.

I the video below, Kailyn is asked about Jenelle's threat to quit. Kailyn starts her answer as diplomatically as she can.

"I think we all feel differently."

Sure. But 

"I have to disagree with her statement about MTV."

We'd imagine so.

"As far as I can see it, you wouldn't have stuck with the show for 8 years if that were the case."

That's a very good point. Maybe Jenelle's just huffing and puffing because she wants to defend David Eason's honor, or whatever.

"I'll leave that there."

She almost did. But remember that burn that we mentioned?

When asked if she thinks that Jenelle should stay or go, Kailyn replied with this:

"I don't care what Jenelle does."

Ouch.

We do have to point out that there's one thing that's different now than it was for most of Jenelle's time on Teen Mom 2:

David Eason.

If he's really as controlling as they say, maybe he's the one who's encouraging Jenelle to quit Teen Mom 2.

It's hard to see why he, or anyone, would want to close up the cash flow of that sweet Teen Mom money.

But maybe he wants the cameras off. That's a chilling thought.

What's worse is that Jenelle might give him what he wants.
