Kailyn Lowry: Taking Javi Marroquin Back After He Dumped Briana DeJesus?!

Things have been rough between Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin for a while now.

Pretty much ever since they met.

Sure, they were probably in love or whatever at some point — they did get married and have a baby together, after all — but things have never really been easy between them.

Remember how much they would fight over anything and everything? Literally just any old thing?

It was bad

But although there was a lot of bad blood between them, they managed to put aside their issues last year for the sake of their son, Lincoln.

At some point, it even seemed like they were forming a pretty solid friendship.

Or at least they were before Briana DeJesus came into the picture.

When Javi started dating Briana last fall, his relationship with Kailyn pretty much fell apart. There was drama between the two of them, and between Kailyn and Briana.

Again, it was bad.

Unfortunately — or let’s be real this was probably best for everyone involved — Javi and Briana broke up earlier this month.

It wasn’t a terribly dramatic breakup or anything. The big issues were that he wanted to settle down and get married again, and also that she planned on getting more plastic surgery and he wasn’t cool with it.

But still, they’re no longer together, and so it seems like he and Kailyn are able to tolerate each other once again.

So are they tolerating each other enough to give love one more chance?!

Javi appeared on Kailyn’s podcast this week, and they touched on the subject of a possible reconciliation in the future.

You know, because it worked so well the first time around.

“I just think that there’s a lot of history between us that neither one of us will ever let go,” Javi explained.

“Even if we were to try again in the future it wouldn’t work because I know the type of person I am and the type of person she is. We argue. It just wouldn’t happen.”

It’s interesting because while he admitted that things would never work out between them, he did say “if we were to try again in the future.”

When are these two crazy kids going to get it together?!

Kailyn confirmed that their love just is not meant to be, saying that “Javi argues out of passion. Javi is a habitual arguer and a ‘never letter goer.'”

“I couldn’t have said it better,” she told him. “I don’t think we could get back together.”

They both agreed that being on Teen Mom 2 definitely played a hand in the downfall of their marriage, and thankfully Javi admitted that jumping from one Teen Mom to another probably wasn’t the best idea.

“I’m trying to learn from my mistakes and not repeat those mistakes so moving forward, I’m not gonna mix that,” he said.

What, was he thinking about landing another Teen Mom next before he came to this realization? Should Leah Messer be on the lookout?

It actually sounds like he’s still a little hung up on Briana.

“I don’t know what the future holds,” he told Kailyn about his most recent ex. “There is a lot we have to discuss and talk about before we make any other decisions.”

“But if we do get back together, I would hope we can all get along.”

Fat chance, buddy.

“It would never happen,” Kailyn replied. “We would never get along. You allowed her to disrespect me to my face, also on camera, also in text messages.”

“When I said what I had to say in a nice way you defended her and not me. We raise a son together, you don’t raise a son with her.”

There’s that good old bickering we know and love!

Look, is there any real chance that these two will ever get back together?

Yes, honestly. It definitely could happen — there seems to be some unresolved feelings there for sure.

But is there an even bigger chance that they will go back and forth between being friendly and being ridiculously, hilariously petty for the rest of their whole entire lives?

You bet your bottom dollar.


Betty White Celebrating 96th Birthday by Taking Day Off, Dinner with Friends

Kate Middleton: Taking NO Part in Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s Wedding?!

Half a year from now, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will get married! It’s going to be a huge ceremony, obviously — because it’s going to be a royal wedding.

We can’t help but think back to when Prince William married Kate Middleton. The world collectively lost its mind over that union. Now that Meghan is joining the family, what role will Kate play at the ceremony that welcomes her?

A surprisingly small one, it turns out. But why?

After months of leaked reports, speculation, and rumors, Kensington Palace finally made the announcement to the world:

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged!

Meghan Markle is a gorgeous actress. She and Harry are clearly in love, no matter what Wendy Williams says about the future Duchess.

Markle’s status as a divorced, biracial American makes her upcoming marriage into the British Royal Family a groundbreaking one and a sign of progress for the monarchy.

Harry has spent years and years as one of the most desired men in the world.

He’s also been a source of frustration for those who see him, Harry Styles, and Harry Potter and find themselves wishing that the UK would come up with some new names for their heartthrobs.

Their upcoming nuptials will be a welcome distraction from the endless hellscape that 2018 is bound to be, if 2016 and 2017 are any indication.

But what role will Duchess Kate play?

She and Meghan Markle are about to be in-laws.

And, not for nothing, but Harry and William are known to be very close brothers.

William and Kate have to be positively glowing with excitement about the wedding … right?

So, how big of a role will Kate play in her brother-in-law’s wedding? Will she be Meghan Markle’s maid of honor?

According to Cosmopolitan and to royals expert Marlene Koenig, probably not.

Koenig explains, a little bluntly, one good reason why Kate wouldn’t have a major presence in the bridal party.

“The Duchess of Cambridge barely knows Meghan.”

Well, that could apply to just about any family’s wedding, royal or not.

Koenig also describes a much more specific reason why Kate Middleton is very unlikely, in her estimation, to be a bridesmaid for Meghan Markle — or any other bride.

“For another, she is the future queen consort when William becomes king after his father, and would unlikely be an attending person to another royal bride.”

The translation?

The woman who’s slated to become queen can’t be seen playing second fiddle to a woman who, barring some tragedy, will never be queen.

So … is Kate being a snob?

Probably not.

Following certain royal protocols remains part of life for the royal family. That means all sorts of things, including avoiding things that are “unseemly” for a future queen consort.

A huge part of being a member of the royal family is keeping up appearances, which is why the royals can’t dress or act like normal people in the way that most other celebrities can.

While this sucks for people like William and Harry who were born into this very luxurious prison, Kate and Meghan both chose to enter this life.

So we don’t imagine that Meghan Markle’s feelings are going to be hurt.

Kate Middleton didn’t take part in her own sister’s wedding because she would have completely upstaged her (and, again, protocol). This doesn’t sound like it’s personal in the slightest.


Shannon Beador: I’m Divorcing David and Taking EVERYTHING!

Star of The Real Housewives of Orange County Shannon Beador and her husband David have split, separating after 17 years together.

We’ve described what was an amicable separation, in which the couple was putting their children first. That was so admirable.

In the space of just one month, however, that arrangement has devolved into a very contentious divorce.

Shannon Beador has been having a rough go of it in recent years.

Back in 2015, David Beador cheated on Shannon. That’s not speculation — they’ve both spoken about it. David admitted to it.

(As we say every time, folks, if you don’t want to live monogamously, either don’t enter a committed relationship or enter a relationship with one or more people who don’t demand monogamy. Otherwise, you’re just being a jerk)

But what should have been the low point that led to an end to their problems wasn’t the end of their marriage’s troubles.

The Real Housewives of Orange County costar Vicki Gunvalson spread nasty rumors about Shannon Beador’s marriage.

Shannon then blamed Vicki for her weight gain, as she responded to the situation by stress-eating.

(Yes, Shannon later apologized, admitting that Vicki was not in fact some sort of witch who had cursed her to grow a softer tummy)

Other costars’ reactions to Shannon’s weight gain ranged from sympathy to fitness guru Tamra Judge’s fear that Shannon might die.

The biggest reaction to Shannon’s weight wasn’t a costar or her fans, though.

To hear her tell it, David Beador stopped loving Shannon when she got “fat.” He wouldn’t touch her and apparently couldn’t stand to look at her.

But, as we’ve described, Shannon and David have been keeping things amicable since their separation in October.

Though David moved out and began dating other women, the two have continued to to do regular family gatherings for the sake of their children.

Going out to dinner or to sportsball games, they’ve been smiling and making it clear that their children come first.

Some wondered if their separation would continue until their children were all a few years older and could grow accustomed to the idea.

RadarOnline reports that this has now changed.

Apparently, Shannon Beador has filed court documents of “dissolution with child.”

(That, to be clear, means that she wants to dissolve the marriage, not their three children)

Shannon also filed a custody declaration, an income declaration, and an expense declaration.

(RadarOnline‘s sources tell them that Shannon’s seeking full custody, and “generous” spousal support and child support. But that’s usually how divorces go)

She filed these documents last Friday, which just so happened to be the first of December.

As it turns out, that was not a coincidence. …

According to another RadarOnline report, Shannon Beador is done playing nice with David.

Their insider explains why Shannon filed these documents on December first:

“Shannon wanted to give David an early Christmas present, so she waited until December to drop the bomb on him.”

Dang. That sounds intense.

“She’s going after full custody and hopes to take him for everything he’s got.”

Are those war drums that we hear in the distance?

“She has so much support right now from all of her cast members and friends.”

That makes sense.

“They all hated David so much and are just beyond thrilled that she finally got rid of him.”

While we don’t expect for The Real Housewives of Orange County cameras to actually follow their divorce proceedings, we’re sure that it will be a big part of Shannon Beador’s future storyline.

But we don’t imagine that we’ll see David. The series is about housewives, not ex-husbands.

While we don’t know yet who will triumph in the divorce battle, we know who’s losing out when the parents begin a no-holds-barred war:

The couple’s three children.

To be clear, we’re not suggesting that they stay together or stay married for the sake of their kids. That’s a recipe for a toxic home environment and children who blame themselves for the misery of their parents.

But an amicable divorce is good for everyone involved. As satisfying as this upcoming court drama might be for fans and viewers, it’s going to take its toll on the Beador kids.

That said … sometimes, there’s just no choice.
