Karen McDougal to Melania Trump: I’m Just… So Sorry

Karen McDougal broke her silence on CNN last night.

The former Playmate of the Year sat opposite Anderson Cooper and discussed in detail her affair with Donald Trump.

As previously reported, this McDougal-Trump affair took place in 2006 and lasted about 10 months, with the pair having met at a party at the Playboy Mansion.

McDougal is now suing the company that buried her story over many years ago and which has pressured her to remain silent about her time with the current President.

In the lengthy interview with Cooper, McDougal talks openly about how she was "intimate" with Trump, describing their first night together and admitting they were in love.

She says they dropped the L-Bomb to each other on multiple occasions.

She adds that they often met up in Beverly Hills, but that she also was given a tour of The Donald's apartment in Trump Tower at one point.

She kept notes about their romance in her diary and she told her sister all about it; the relationship wasn't a secret nor, McDougal says, did Trump ever ask her to keep it as one.

Oh, and she says Trump tried to pay her for sex after their first go-around in bed.

"I want to share my truth because everyone else is talking about my truth," McDougal said at one point, adding:

"I need to share my story. … I've never talked, since the day it happened. I have refused to speak publicly, privately even.

"My friends know, my family know, but nobody else knows. I wanted to keep it quiet. But now that it's out, I need to control it."

McDougal is one of two women at the moment, along with a porn star named Stormy Daniels, who is angling to tell the world about her sexual dalliance with Trump.

In this sit-down, she comes across as rather calm and collected, with the exception of one response.

When Cooper asks McDougal what she would like to say to Melania Trump, who had just given birth to son Barron at the time Karen starting doing her husband, McDougal gets a bit misty-eyed.

"What can you say except, I'm sorry?" McDougal responds. "I'm sorry. I wouldn't want it done to me."

Burger King: Sorry About that Sign About Overdosing!

The idea of a Burger King establishment enacting a policy that bans customers from returning once they’ve had an overdose on the grounds sounds like the premise of a particularly cruel The Onion article.

Unfortunately, it’s real.

The Burger King in question even posted a sign, which you can see below.

Let’s be clear from the beginning:

This one overdose per customer limit is not a rule passed down from Burger King corporate to different managers.

But one particular Burger King in Worcester, Massachusetts decided that they needed to do something about the prevalence of drug use in their establishment.

According to WBZ, “It’s common knowledge, people do use those restrooms to do that sort of thing. There have been overdoses in there.”

And this is the sign that attracted the attention of police and, of course, of the internet.

“You are ONLY allowed ONE overdose and then you are banned from this establishment.”

Burger King Overdose Rule

Obviously, a number of critics — regardless of their opinions on the opioid epidemic that our nation faces — were shocked that a manager would even hang this in the first place.

The internet exists. Signs don’t stay secret.

On a surface level, the policy itself seems fair. If someone gets caught overdosing in a fast food place … it’s a business. You don’t need people nearly dying from drugs and frightening away customers who are there to eat food.

If this were a shelter, someone might have a point in saying that the policy isn’t compassionate. But Burger Kings are not shelters. They’re restaurants. Let people eat their delicious onion rings in peace.

At the same time, the way in which the sign was written — the phrasing — made it sound almost permissive.

As if Burger King is fine with drug use within the establishment up until you overdose. Then and only then do they draw the line.

Obviously, that does not reflect Burger King policy.

Now, let’s be clear — this sign wasn’t put up for no reason.

Between September of 2016 and September of 2017, this particular Burger King was the site of nine different overdoses. And, quite frankly, those are just the ones that got reported.

The problem is very real.

But the sign is not, um, the answer.

Police met with the manager in order to discuss, you know, better solutions.

Even people who are 100% in support of ending the prohibition of drugs and drug use, both because it’s the right thing to do and in an effort to end the current opioid epidemic, don’t think that people need to be shooting up or whatever inside of a Burger King.

And groups who work to support and advocate for those who are battling addiction agree, saying that signs like this one “don’t help.”

A Burger King spokesperson, whom we would like to imagine as a town crier reading out a royal edict, said:

“The actions of this Team Member were an isolated incident and do not reflect the Burger King brand values or the values of the Franchisee, who independently owns and operates this restaurant.”

Like many fast food chains, Burger King operates with a sort of … Burger Feudal system.

At the top is Burger King itself, the corporate entity. Beyond that are franchisees, whom we might consider to be “Burger Barons.” Then there are store managers, who are like vassals — or Burger Knights.

“The Franchisee is investigating this incident thoroughly and will take the actions they believe are appropriate.”

In other words, a manager is going to have some explaining to do to a rich person who probably owns a number of these places.

As a general rule, big companies do not like having to explain why one manager said or did something dumb.

Burger King itself doesn’t really deserve this bad press.

In fact, that they’ve kept a restaurant in such a troubled area to continue to serve the locals is commendable.

Different people will hold different opinions on how people struggling with addiction should be treated. Some want them thrown in prison, others want them sent for treatment. Others still believe that it’s their right to take these substances — even if it kills them.

But absolutely none of those people think that people have any business overdosing in a Burger King.


Tom Schwartz to Scheana Marie: Sorry I Got Drunk & Called You a Kardashian!

Tom Schwartz is inarguably the least confrontational member of the Vanderpump Rules cast.

He really only fights with his wife, Katie Maloney, and only then when he’s full of liquor, or she’s telling the entire world that his penis doesn’t function properly.

So viewers were stunned when Tom went on the offensive against Scheana during a boozy gathering of SUR staffers.

It all started when Scheana went off on Katie for continuing to claim that spread rumors about Robert Valletta cheating on her.

When Scheana called Katie fake, Schwartz jumped in with what was actually a pretty solid burn, especially coming from such a mild-mannered dude:

“Scheana, look at your nails! You’re the fakest person in this whole building!” he slurred.

“You’re fake from head to toe. You have no personality. You’re nothing! You’re a bootleg Kardashian. All you care about is a f-cking selfie.”

“Bootleg Kardashian” cuts pretty deep, as the ladies of Vanderpump have been accused of thinking they’re on the Kardashians level.

They’re not, of course – even though their show is far more entertaining – so it probably stung to be reminded of that during filming.

Tom was applauded for sticking up for his wife, but many thought he was too hard on Scheana.

Not surprisingly, Schwartz returned to his soft-spoken, retiring self when he sobered up the next morning.

Appearing on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live this week, Tom was asked if he regretted going off on Scheana, and he admitted that there was some serious morning-after remorse.

“In the moment, I didn’t, but the day after, I felt terrible. Like I said before, I’m so sorry, Scheana,” he told the caller.

“Can I just say, I’ve never exercised that muscle,” Tom elaborated.

“It felt good in the moment, but I felt so bad the next morning,” Tom told Andy Cohen alongside wife Katie Maloney, who he was sticking up for during a recent SURver scuffle.”

Clearly trying to make amends, Schwartz concluded:

“Scheana, I love you. I hope you have an empire just like them, and I’m sorry I said that shit.”

Not quite as scandalous as Jax cheating on Brittany, but seeing Tom’s aggressive made for one of the season’s most surprising moments.

Which is saying something, as this season has been loaded with stunners.

Khloe Kardashian: I’m Happier Than I’ve Ever Been — Sorry, Lamar!

If you’ve seen or heard anything from Khloe Kardashian lately, you’ve probably noticed one thing …

Well, a couple of things. There’s no denying that baby bump these days!

But besides the pregnancy — though we’re sure the pregnancy is a big part of it — she’s really just seemed so happy and peaceful, hasn’t she?

Like after so many ups and downs, she’s finally settled in a place where she wants to be in life.

It’s so nice to see.

And if you weren’t near tears over the beautiful turnaround of Khloe Kardashian’s life already, well, let her break it all down for you in this lengthy but super touching Instagram post she made today!

For her photo, she shared an older photo of herself along with a much more recent one — her “revenge body”:

Khloe Kardashian Before and After

In the caption, she wrote “Sometimes it’s hard for me to post these transformation posts only because I can’t imagine my life being this unhealthy again.”

To clarify, she added that “Never would I ever consider myself fat, but I would consider myself unhealthy mentally/physically and not knowing my true value. Mind, body and soul.”

Aww, KoKo.

“For me,” she wrote, “my transformation started from within. I needed to heal myself from the inside out.”

“Once I started putting myself first, everything started falling into place. My life transformed a few years ago when I made the decision to stop existing and start living.”

A few years ago, of course, is when she split from Lamar Odom and began focusing hard on her fitness.

She’s said many times that she began going to the gym as a way to deal with everything that was going on with Lamar — his downward spiral began while they were still together.

It must have been tough for her to file for divorce and take care of herself when so many people were convinced that they were soulmates, destined to be together forever.

But, as she explained, “I decided when I was ready regardless of what anybody else was saying about me. Regardless of the pressures. I had to do this on my terms or I knew it wouldn’t last.”

“It’s ok to take the control back,” she advised her followers. “Choose your life. Don’t let anybody else decide for you!”

“We are no victims to life but we can become victims and prisoners to the people that we choose to surround ourselves with if we allow them to break us and consume us.”

Anyone else loving this motivational speaker side of Khloe? Because we are kind of living for it.

“Never be afraid to put yourself first!” she preached. “Never choose comfort over your own well-being! Never forget that fate loves the fearless!”

“Today’s wisdom was yesterday’s pain. Tomorrow’s happiness is today’s bravery! I am so proud of myself for being stronger than I’ve ever been — mind body and soul.”

And she should be — we still don’t know all that went on with her marriage to Lamar, but just considering what we do know, it’s amazing that she’s been able to pull herself up like this.

We all saw how deeply she loved him, and we also saw how deeply he betrayed her. She definitely should be proud of her strength.

Khloe also wrote that she’s “even prouder of myself that I’ve been able to maintain a healthy lifestyle for so many years. I broke that cycle and I’m happier than I have ever been!”

“You can do this!! Start from within and nothing can stop you,” she finished. “Elevate yourself — mind body and soul.”

It’s no wonder why so many people refer to her as the best Kardashian, huh?


Kailyn Lowry to Sons: I’m Sorry About Your Dads!

In addition to starring on one of the most popular series in MTV history and hosting a successful podcast, Kailyn Lowry is also the author of a pair memoirs.

Each of Kailyn’s books made it to the bestsellers list, the latter becoming such a hit that it even inspired an adult coloring book.

(As in a coloring book for adults. There was nothing pornographic in it … we think.)

So it should come as no surprise that Kailyn has a third memoir in the works.

And since it was the candid nature of her first two tell-alls that made them so popular with Teen Mom 2 fans, it should also come as no surprise that Kailyn is once again baring her soul in her latest volume.

Not surprisingly, the future is very much on the mother of three’s mind these days.

In particular, it seems she’s concerned about the challenges presented by raising three boys without an adult male presence in the household.

Kailyn welcomed son Lux in August of 2017, and it seems her co-parenting relationship with his father, Chris Lopez, is not going as planned.

Obviously, the situation is weighing heavily on Lowry’s mind, and she says she’s addressing her new book to all three of her boys, so that they might better understand the challenges she faces as a young single mom:

“The book was an apology letter to Lux for basically the mess he was born into and how bad I feel,” Lowry told Radar Online in a recent interview.

“But now it’s to all three of them.”

She further elaborated on the concept in a tweet posted earlier this week, writing:

“I feel bad and I’m nervous about how a lot of my decisions will impact them or affect them. So I’m apologizing to all of them and I want them to know how much I love them and I’m working now to pick up the pieces.”

Of course, Kail’s feelings of guilt are common to all parents and seem to afflict single parents in particular.

But while some aspects of her situation may be universal, others are unique.

Most parents struggle to make their children understand the difficulties of raising children under any circumstances, but Kail’s struggles are well-documented, both on television and in book form.

And as her boys grow up, that set of circumstances is likely to help them forge a bond with their mother that few sons know.

A release date for Kail’s third memoir has not yet been announced, but those familiar with the project say it’s in its final stages.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online to relive Kailyn’s difficult third pregnancy.

Audrey Roloff: Sorry, God, I’ll Instagram Less Often!

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:

Perfect, right?

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.
