Audrey Roloff has an important and surprising announcement to make.
Actually, before she does so, Audrey Roloff has a precious and adorable photo to share:
How does the Little People, Big World star do anything that doesn’t involve cuddling her daughter, Ember Jean?!?
Sadly, however, fans of the reality star may not be seeing many more pictures such as this going forward.
Audrey announced as a caption to the cute snapshot that she may be posting less frequently on Instagram going forward.
And she share an interesting reason why.
“All cozied up with my sweet little Ember. She warms my heart, get it. Snuggling her is my favorite,” opened Roloff.
She then delved into more profound and religious detail:
“Ok so… I’ve been convicted on something lately… As much as l love sharing my life with y’all and what I’ve learned/am learning, l never want to be someone who spends more time sharing on social media than l do seeking the Lord and searching His truths.”
Audrey, of course, has always been very open about her faith.
“I know this might sound a little contradictory, cause here l am sharing this, but maybe some of you can relate?” she continued,adding:
“In a world that invites us to share share share, l want to seek seek seek. Instead of always reaching for my phone to document a moment or share on social media, l want to be more concerned with seeking God in those moments and listening for what He might have to share with me!
This is a common critique of social media, of course.
Not the connection to God necessarily, but the fact that some people spend more time documenting their lives than living their lives.
“Don’t get me wrong, l love sharing and engaging with you all in this space,” Audrey concluded.
“But it should always come second to time with my Creator and redeemer.
“I want to be someone who spends more time reading truth, engaging wisdom, and listing for His still small voice, than sharing my own incomplete oversimplified perspectives.”
Roloff has also faced a lot of unfair criticism as a result of her frequent Instagram posting.
She was somehow dragged online for this simple photo of her daughter, for example.
This may explain why Jeremy recently expressed support for his beloved soulmate.
“Im so proud of my wife. These last few weeks have been pretty tough on her,” Jeremy wrote yesterday.
“(If you watch our stories you know what I’m talking about) But she’s been a trooper and I’m thankful that I have her as a teammate.”
Hey, whatever makes you feel happy and content, Audrey.
We adore seeing these Ember Jean photos, but we support whatever decision you make in this regard.

The relationship between Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin … well, it hasn't been great for a very, very long time.
We might go so far as to say that it's never been all that stellar.
They got married when Kailyn was just 20 years old, and Javi is a year younger than her. It wasn't long after that that they welcomed their son, Lincoln.
And before they were even married, we saw them get into some pretty terrible fights.
Then, of course, there was all the divorce drama — we're still not sure exactly what happened there.
Javi says Kailyn cheated, she says that it was technically cheating because they were already separated, he says that doesn't count as an excuse because he didn't know they were separated.
He's broken into her home, she's filed a protective order against him because she said she feared for her safety.
It's a lot.
But, as we saw in a heartbreaking little scene on Marriage Boot Camp last night, there's still at least a little bit of love between these two.
This new episode was the one where the couples play pretend that one of them is on life support, near death, and the other has to, you know, deal with that.
This time around, Kailyn is told that Javi was in a bad car crash and he's now brain-dead, and so she has to say her goodbyes.
And while she's normally known for being cold and unemotional, her reaction to the exercise was pretty intense.
"This is f-cked up," she says upon seeing Javi in a hospital bed. "No, get me out of here."
She starts crying, something we rarely see her do, and she tries to leave, but the therapist pulls her back in the room.
She's asked what she wants to say to him — her pretend last words to him — and she says through tears "I'm sorry, and I'll take care of our son."
The therapist then pulls out a letter Kailyn had written to Javi earlier in the season — one that she thought was going to be destroyed.
"I have said the things I wrote in the letter a million times," she admits in a later interview, but "it wasn't appropriate in the time and place."
So since she refused to read the letter, the therapist read it for her.
"I would never want my sons to grow up to be like you are right now," she had written to Javi. "You've acted childish and don't know how to control your feelings."
If you want to creep a little, you can pause the video and read the rest of the letter — it's all about how Kailyn doesn't want her boys to "think it's OK to try to control someone else" or make them "feel unsafe in their own home."
When asked what she'd like to say to Javi on his deathbed, she starts crying again and says "I care about you so much, and I never knocked you as a father, and I'll make sure that our son is taken care of."
Pretty heavy stuff, right?
Later, Javi admits that he never thought she'd actually cry during the exercise.
"It was nice to finally get some kind of emotion out of her," he says, then to Kailyn herself, he complains "You never tell me how you feel."
"If you were to die, a part of me would die. You will always have a piece of my heart."
Is there hope for Kavi yet?!
No, like we know they're divorced now and she's had a baby with another man since this was filmed, but still … do they have a chance?
Watch the sad scene in the video below:
“Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” star Hazel-E is eating her words, and asking her LGBT fans to forgive her for saying gays should burn in hell. We spoke to Hazel Thursday … the day after she went on a homophobic social media rant. Someone…
No excuses. No explanations. No new attempts at blame anyone for misunderstanding her point.
Mayim Bialik has finally just apologized.
The Big Bang Theory has been raked over the Internet coals for several days now, ever since she penned an op-ed for The New York Times in which she addressed the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal…
… and partly blamed the victims of rape for the situations they get in.
“As a proud feminist with little desire to diet, get plastic surgery or hire a personal trainer, I have almost no personal experience with men asking me to meetings in their hotel rooms,” Bialik actually wrote, expounding:
“Those of us in Hollywood who don’t represent an impossible standard of beauty have the ‘luxury’ of being overlooked and, in many cases, ignored by men in power unless we can make them money.”
Bialik went on to encourage women to dress modestly, acknowledging that a woman “should” be able to dress however she wants, but that simply isn’t the world in which we reside.
“Nothing – absolutely nothing – excuses men for assaulting or abusing women,” the actress said, making a statement about which no one should disagree.
Yet she then qualified it as follows:
“But we can’t be naïve about the culture we live in.”
But perhaps you should try to change it and to raise awareness… but lecture women about their attitude or wardrobe and not blaming victims of assault in any way, shape or form.
After getting rightfully ripped online for her editorial, Bialik went after her “vicious” critics, saying people just didn’t get her point of view.
She then tried to clarify her comments, saying, for one thing, that she was only addressing the insular world of Hollywood and not speaking on rape in general.
Now, at last, Bialik has simply said she is sorry.
“I want to address my op-ed in the NY Times, and the reaction to it,” a note Tweeted from the actress opens.
“Let me say clearly and explicitly that I am very sorry. What you wear and how you behave does not provide any protection from assault, nor does the way you dress or act in any way make you responsible for being assaulted; you are never responsible for being assaulted.”
As more and more women speak out on their awful experiences, Bialik also praised these brave and admirable actresses, singers and general Internet users.
“I applaud the bravery of the women who have come forward,” she added.
“I support these women as we seek out and demand accountability from the only ones responsible for assault and rape: the people who perpetrate these heinous crimes.
“I am motivated and driven to work hard to empower women.”
“I am truly sorry for causing so much pain, and I hope you can all forgive me.”
It’s very possible that Bialik had noble intentions when she wrote her controversial op-ed.
She may have legitimately been trying to help women stay out of harm’s way.
But, wow, did she misfire.
We’re just glad she has finally come to this conclusion and said the only thing one can say when it comes to sexual assault:
It is ALWAYS the fault of the perpetrator and the perpetrator only.

James Corden has learned the hard way that rape and sexual misconduct are NOT laughing matters.
As host of the eighth annual amFAR gala in Beverly Hills on Friday, the late night talk show host attempted to find humor in the ongoing Harvey Weinstein scandal.
But he failed. Miserably.
“This is a beautiful room, this is a beautiful night here in L.A.,” Corden said on stage at one point, referencing the harassment and rape charges leveled against the aforementioned movie producer and joking:
“It is so beautiful that Harvey Weinstein has already asked tonight up to his hotel room to give him a massage.”
The quip drew some laughter, but also some clearly uncomfortable and unsatisfied groans.
“I don’t know whether that groan was that you liked that joke, or you don’t like the joke,” Corden responded. “If you don’t like the joke, you should probably leave right now.”
Unfazed, Corden continued with the Weinstein-inspired material:
“It has been weird this week, though, hasn’t it, watching Harvey Weinstein in hot water? Ask any of the women who watched him take a bath, it’s weird watching Harvey Weinstein in hot water…
“Harvey Weinstein wanted to come tonight, but he’ll settle for whatever potted plant is closest.”
Weinstein has been accused of rape.
An endless stream of women in Hollywood have come forward with sordid stories about how he harassed them or threatened their careers or acted in any number of abhorrent ways.
In other words: too soon, James Corden.
Too soon and too sensitive of a topic.
Following a stream of backlash against his jokes of this nature, the comedian issued an apology on Twitter.
“I was not trying to make light of Harvey’s inexcusable behavior, but to shame him, the abuser, not his victims,” he wrote, adding:
“I am truly sorry for anyone offended, that was never my intention.”
This may very well be the case.
But, again, we’re dealing with a very sensitive topic here.
Rose McGowan, who has been outspoken about Weinstein’s behavior for years and who says the gross producer sexually assaulted her, Tweeted the following after learning about Corden’s set:
“YOU MOTHERF**KING PIGLET. Hearing the audience’s vile roars & laughs show EXACTLY what kind of HOLLYWOOD you really are.”
Asia Argento, an actress who has also accused Weinstein of rape, echoed this sentiment:
“Shame on this pig and everyone who grunted with him #amfARLosAngeles.”
Last Tuesday, Weinstein’s spokesperson, Sallie Hofmeister, said in a statement to The New Yorker:
“Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.
“He will not be available for further comments, as he is taking the time to focus on his family, on getting counseling and rebuilding his life.”
