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.”

Mayim Bialik Lashes Out at “Vicious” Critics, Totally Doesn’t Get It

Mayim Bialik is not apologizing for her controversial stance regarding rape and feminism.

Over the weekend, Bialik wrote an op-ed in response to accusations of sexual assault against movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

The Big Bang Theory actress was not a victim of Weinstein’s. It doesn’t sound as though she knows anyone who has claimed to be.

So why did she choose to speak out about this topic?

Because Bialik thought she had helpful advice to offer fellow members of her gender.

“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 wrote, instantly stepping into scalding hot water.

Right off the bat here, she’s saying that Weinstein only preyed on attractive women.

Moreover, she’s blaming the attractive women for… well… being attractive.

She’s completely missing the point that sexual harassment is all about some insecure jerk such as Weinstein exerting his power, not simply wanting to tap some fine piece of you-know-what.

“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 continued.

Over the past week or so, approximately 43 women have come forward and accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct.

Some, such as Rose McGowan, have accused him or rape.

The fact that anyone would dare to lecture these women, or any victims of assault, is horribly offensive.

But that never occurred to Bialik, apparently.

“If you are beautiful and sexy, terrific. But having others celebrate your physical beauty is not the way to lead a meaningful life,” she wrote.

“And if – like me – you’re not a perfect 10, know that there are people out there who will find you stunning, irresistible and worthy of attention, respect and love.

“The best part is you don’t have to go to a hotel room or a casting couch to find them.”

In response to this terribly pompous and totally misguided editorial, critics lambasted Bialik for blaming the victims of rape in any way, shape or form.

Gabrielle Union, for example, Tweeted that “Sexual or physical violence, harassment, demeaning language is NOT the price one should pay for seeking or maintaining employment. Period.”

She then shared her personal story:


Care to respond, Mayim Bialik?

Actually, the actress has responded.

Not to Union, specifically, but to her critics.

“I’m being told my N.Y. Times piece resonated with so many and I am beyond grateful for all of the feedback,” she wrote on Twitter, adding:

“I also see a bunch of people have taken my words out of the context of the Hollywood machine and twisted them to imply that God forbid I would blame a woman for her assault based on her clothing or behavior.

“Anyone who knows me and my feminism knows that’s absurd and not at all what this piece was about.

“It’s so sad how vicious people are being when I basically live to make things better for women.”

mayim tweet

The actress announced that she would hold a Facebook Live discussion with the newspaper on Monday to clear the air.

But we have a question, considering that Bialik wrote the following in her piece:

I am entirely aware that these types of choices might feel oppressive to many young feminists.

Women should be able to wear whatever they want. They should be able to flirt however they want with whomever they want. Why are we the ones who have to police our behavior?

In a perfect world, women should be free to act however they want.

But our world isn’t perfect.

Nothing—absolutely nothing—excuses men for assaulting or abusing women. But we can’t be naïve about the culture we live in.

How, exactly, are we taking anything out of context to interpret this as placing blame on sexual assault victims for how they dress and act?


Nikki Reed: My Breast Pump Is Totally a Third Wheel!

It’s still hard to believe that Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder welcomed their first child together into the world in July. 

Their relationship has had many ups and downs, and it has given us a lot to write about over the years, but now, they are more unified than ever, and it’s adorable. 

Nikki was making her way to a Hollywood event on Saturday and took to Instagram to show off her good looks, and jokingly said that her hot date was a breast pump. 

“On my way to present at @variety ‘s #powerofwomen luncheon and this is my hot date,” she captioned the photo. “Kidding. I have another hot date. But this thing is definitely our third wheel.”

We are pleased she threw the “kidding” part in because she could have caused a lot of trouble on social media. 

The post came just days after Ian apologized for a joke he made about messing with Nikki’s birth control to force her into pregnancy. 

“We decided that we wanted to have children together, and it was just time. But unbeknownst to poor Nikki, she didn’t realize that I was going to go in her purse and take out her birth control,” he said on Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy podcast.

Naturally, this was met with a lot of criticism from across the world. Simply put, it’s not something to joke about because it’s a very real thing that happens all the time. 

Ian took swift action and turned to Instagram with a lengthy statement to reveal that he and Nikki both wanted to have a child and that he most certainly did not tamper with her birth control. 

“We never expect a lighthearted interview we did poking fun at EACH OTHER and how WE chose together to get pregnant, a goofy moment in Barcelona with our two best friends and the anticipation of the start of our journey together as we went from two to three, to turn into something representing a very serious matter,” his post began. 

“However, if this somehow sheds a light on a topic that definitely needs mainstream attention, then we are grateful for the unintended consequence.”

“It’s a shame that outlets chose this as their way into a very serious discussion, as we are certainly not qualified to be the faces of this topic.”

“We are two happily married people who chose TOGETHER to have a baby. The end,” he concluded. 

What do you think about all of this? 

Sound off below!


National Coming Out Day: These Stars are Totally Gay!

Many in Hollywood got the celebration started on June 26, 2015, the day on which the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide.

We've heard from numerous stars regarding the decision, all elated over this historic 5-4 decision.

But the following actors, actresses, athletes and singers likely pumped their fists just a bit harder than everyone else in Tinseltown.

That's because they've been out of the closet for awhile now, and it's hard to believe this decision doesn't hit a little bit closer to home for them…

Teen Mom 2 Recap: We Would Totally Swipe Right On …

Jenelle and Barbara Evans’ feud continued to escalate on this week’s Teen Mom 2, while Luis delivered a shocker to a reeling Briana.

Elsewhere on Teen Mom 2 Season 9 Episode 10, Leah re-entered the dating world, but the experience was not without its drawbacks.

If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you know Jenelle has been battling her mother Barbara for custody of her son Jace for a long time.

To the surprise of no one, she lost.

Barbara said it’s for the best for the boy, too, and the main reason for that is he’s “scared to death” of Jenelle’s fiance, David Eason.

(Also because Jenelle failed a drug test while pregnant, but that revelation hadn’t come to light at the time this episode was recorded.)

Eason didn’t take kindly to Barb’s actions, saying, “It takes one of the lowest, most selfish pieces of s–t in the world to do what she does.”

“I hate her so f–king much.”

At least for the time being, Jenelle tried to look on the bright side – as much as one can look at that with court-mandated visitation days.

She also promised that her mom would not be invited to her wedding, which would be planned on a weekend in which she has Jace.

So there?

“I don’t consider her as my mom anymore,” Jenelle said of the woman who has raised her son. “She’s completely ruined our relationship.”

Yikes. Speaking of tumultuous relationships, Luis Miguel dropped another bombshell on the expectant Briana DeJesus Monday night:

Luis was going to miss the birth of their child … in order to go to school to be a truck driver. She was stunned, but what can she say?

“How are you a man and you can’t provide for your kid … how can you live with yourself?” Briana said later, referring to her ex.

As Briana noted, he waited until the tail end of her pregnancy to get trained in truck driving, so even if he is doing it so he can provide?

Still pretty frustrating. #justsayin

In West Virginia, Leah Messer decided to go on Bumble, the dating app, to see who’s out there after her divorce from Jeremy Calvert.

Despite her rumored relationship with T.R. Dues, Messer says she hasn’t been on a date since her divorce, and she’s nervous about it!

Her kids were supportive though.

“Go and get a boyfriend,” Addie said, though her first date didn’t exactly live up to expectations. In reality, it was most painfully awkward.

“When you know, you know and that’s a no,” she said with a smile … sometimes all you can do is laugh it off and move on to the next.

Meanwhile, on Father’s Day, Chelsea Houska’s daughter Aubree had to go to her real dad’s house, and she wasn’t thrilled about this.

Why? ‘Cause it’s Adam Lind.

“If he’s just going to sleep and not do anything with you on Father’s Day then you should just come home,” Chelsea told her daughter.

“I know someone who’d love to something with you on Father’s Day,” she added, referring to husband Cole, for good reason.

Later, Aubs showed her mom an “All About My Dad” worksheet she recently filled out at church, and it was beyond touching.

Young Aubree had filled out the paper about Cole, not Adam, and knew all of his favorite things. Cole really is pretty great. 🙂 

Last but not least, Kailyn Lowry’s ex Jo Rivera decided to serve her papers to try to obtain 50-50 custody of their son, Isaac, 7.

Kailyn was really upset.

Pondering Jo’s motivation, Kailyn felt he was likely doing it to prevent her from moving away from him, as she did once before.

(Rivera and his fiancee Vee Torres moved to Delaware to be closer to Kailyn, Isaac, and her then-husband Javi Marroquin.)

“Seeing Jo was stressful but now I have to focus on my graduation,” Kailyn said of her commencement from Delaware State.

To find a job in her field – not just being a professional celebrity – she may end up moving, hence Rivera’s custody concerns.

Stay tuned there.


Scheana Marie: Totally Naked on Instagram! (For a Good Cause)

We’re just a few weeks away from a new season of Vanderpump Rules, and while Jax and Brittney’s spinoff series is boring viewers to tears, one of the couple’s co-stars is demonstrating that she knows exactly how to stay at the forefront of her fans’ minds.

Scheana Marie and boyfriend Robert Valletta may have stripped down in support of PETA, but they’re no doubt aware that posting the first image from the campaign will also bring in some always-welcome free publicity for their own careers.

Don’t get us wrong; we’re not hating.

It’s a win-win situation, as even though PETA occasionally goes a bit too in its tactics and ad campaigns sometimes (and by “occasionally,” we mean almost always), the cause this time is bringing an end to the unethical treatment of orcas at Sea World and similar theme parks, which is something everyone can get behind.

Here, we’ll resist the urge to indulge in any “get behind” innuendo even though we’re talking about a naked couple, because we’re totes mature and classy grownups.

Anyway, the campaign doesn’t officially launch until November, but as you can see, Scheana and Robert couldn’t resist giving fans a peak at what’s in store.

It seems Scheana is trying to turn #BareForCare into 2017’s ice bucket challenge, but we’re no so sure it’ll catch on in the same way.

After all, the 2015 social media trend only required people to dump a bucket of ice on their heads, while this one demands that we strip down in front of an audience of our friends and family, which sounds like a literal nightmare.

Fun for the West Hollywood CoolSculpting set, not all that interesting for those of us who spent our summers continuously making sure burritos and beer still taste good together.

In a seriously lengthy caption for the photo, Scheana challenges friends Ariana Madix and Lala Kent to strip down next.

“Take a pic and post it with #bareforcare and tag your friends, challenging them to do the same. Also, make a pledge to donate your time, supplies, or a financial contribution to an animal rescue of your choice,” Schena writes.

“Together we can make a difference. Don’t just stare, go bare for CARE!”

Like we said, it’s a good cause, and we’re totally with you on the pledging time and money thing, but we’re gonna go ahead and do it with our clothes on.

Or maybe naked, but at home, with a piece of duct tape over our webcams just to be safe.

Obviously, seeing the cast of Vanderpump nude is nothing new, as this might be the nakedest cast on television.

But we salute gratuitous nudity in all cases, particularly when its done in the name of a good cause.

So keep it up, Scheana!

Along with the orcas of the world, we thank you.

Watch Vanderpump Rules online for more from antics from ridiculously good-looking people.


Katy Perry: I’m Totally Still Banging Orlando Bloom!

Back in March, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom broke up after just a few months of dating.

They announced the split in a surprisingly cordial joint statement that frankly felt way too polite.

If two of your friends broke up in the same fashion, you’d be left thinking, Well, either they weren’t that into each other, or they’ll be smashing again before the year is out.

It seems impossible that anyone could be enter into a relationship with Katy Perry or Orlando Bloom halfheartedly, so we should’ve predicted that the attractive A-listers would once again end up knockin’ boots.

As recently as last week, it was widely reported that Katy was dating Robert Pattinson.

The rumor appeared to be BS from the start, what with Pattinson being engaged to FKA Twigs, and all.

This week, the rumor is that Katy is back with Orlando, and given her evasive answers on the topic in a recent interview, we can assume it’s legit.

“Well, you know, I think people are in and out of your life,” Katy said, when asked about the recent photos of her and Bloom attending a concert together.

“It’s nice to keep people you love around you. When you get older, lines get blurred. And you know what, I’m really busy. I’m about to go on tour for another year.”

A source close to Perry says she and Orlando are spending a lot of time together and “open to seeing what happens.”

Add to that the fact that Katy recently admitted to rekindling a romance after randomly texting an ex, and it’s pretty clear what’s going on here.

So stop trying to give us the run-around, Katy.

Also, while you’re at it, can you stop dispensing homespun wisdom like you’re sitting in her rocker and knitting a quilt in every damn interview?

Let’s take a moment to remember the woman is only 32 years old!

She’s talking about “blurred lines” in relationships like she’s too close to the sweet release of death to worry about labels.

Helpful note for other folks in their early thirties:

If your significant other asks you to define your relationship, don’t be all, “Well, I’m so old that the lines have blurred, ya know? Now be a dear and go stir me up some Metamucil.”

That kind of talk literally only works if you’re Katy Perry.


Paris Hilton: I’m Totally Sorry for Defending Trump! That Wasn’t Hot

Hey, remember how Paris Hilton defended Trump, calling him “respectful” and “sweet” as if she’d only met a Trump from an alternate universe? Unfortunately, we remember.

She’s been slammed for her comments, because … they were terrible. The interview turns out to have been from a year ago, but still.

Her thoughts on the orange man notwithstanding, Paris Hilton’s not stupid — and she’s issued an apology.

Plenty of people admire Paris Hilton for her music or her business acumen or her acting or her brand or whatever.

These past couple of years of listening to her have positive things to say about Donald Trump has been … painful.

While it was obvious that, like Clay Aiken, Paris Hilton’s statements in Trump’s defense were based upon personally knowing him and being totally unable to handle the kind of man he really is because he was always so nice to her.

(That’s so common — we’ve all seen people respond to finding out that someone’s an abuser or a serial killer or whatever and going “but he was so nice.” Monsters aren’t always monsters to everyone, folks)

Like Clay Aiken, Paris is now apologizing for her remarks defending Trump.

In a statement to Us Weekly on Wednesday, Paris Hilton said that she’s sorry for her Trump comments.

“I want to apologize for my comments from an interview I did last year.”

Always good to start with the apology itself.

Remember when we mentioned, as we covered it, that we didn’t know when the interview was actually done?

It’s kind of shady that it just popped up right after the Charlottesville Nazi rally and terrorist attack, when Trump is despised even more than usual.

“They were part of a much larger story and I am regretful that they were not delivered in the way I had intended.”

Now, they shouldn’t have been delivered at all, to be clear.

She should not have said what she did, either about Trump being a good person and especially not about the women accusing Trump of sexual assault being fame-seekers.

“I was speaking about my own experiences in life and the role of media and fame in our society and it was never my intention for my comments to be misapplied almost a year later.”

Poor phrasing isn’t the best excuse.

We do understand that Paris is talking about a man she’s known since childhood.

We just wish that his present statements and actions would speak loud enough for her to condemn him.

Paris Hilton tries to address the shaming of his accusers, specifically.

“I always believe in helping women have their voices heard and helping create an environment where women feel empowered and believe in themselves.”

That’s good.

That’s also very different from accusing Trump’s accusers of bieng liars.

“I am deeply hurt by how this has played out and also deeply sorry.”

That kind of has a “I’m sorry you were upset” vibe to it, you know?

But it’s Paris and we think that she’s being sincere.

“Moving forward I will continue to do what I can to be an advocate for girls and women with the hopes of providing a louder voice for those who may desperately need it.”

That’s not a condemnation of Trump, but it is an apology.

That has to count for something.

Honestly, we’re beginning to suspect that there’s more at play here than a personal fondness.

It’s possible that Paris’ family has business ties with Trump that could be endangered if she speaks up.

We know that Trump’s politics are very different from her own.

Remember, this is the woman who did the “Paris For President” music video back in 2008.

During that song, she talked about LGBT rights, she talked about scaling back the world’s nukes and also about the importance of environmental protections in the face of climate change.

Seriously, “intensify nuclear non-proliferation and ratify Kyoto today” was a line from the song.

She also took some well-deserved jabs at George W. Bush.

We’d love to see that from Paris again. We believe that she can be that Paris again.


Kim Kardashian: Having Kids Totally Changed Me!

When you think of Kim Kardashian, odds are you don’t think of heartwarming essays on motherhood.

You probably just think of stuff like butts and Ray J and 72-day marriages.

And that’s fair — Kim has been famous for a very, very long time now, and it makes sense that there are certain things about her that stick out more than others.

But just because you may think of Kim as more of a sex symbol and less of a Mother of the Year doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have strong feelings when it comes to her kids.

And, lucky for us and our tender hearts, she’s revealing those feelings in a new post she made to her website!

Yesterday was apparently National Son’s and Daughter’s Day — don’t feel bad if you didn’t know, who can keep up with all the “holidays” anymore?

But Kim did know, and to celebrate the special day, she wrote about her own son and daughter.

“Having kids changes everything — in the best way possible,” she wrote. “Thank you to my babies for choosing me and allowing me to be your mom.”

Sweet, right? But hold on, it just gets better!

“I have such an unconditional love for my kids,” she continued. “No matter what, I will always love them and support them in anything they choose to do in life.”

She also wrote that “My family was so close growing up; now that I’m a mom, I understand the bond my mom and dad felt with us.”

Kim admitted that “There can be ups and downs with kids,” but “no matter what, I always learn so much from them.”

“Being a mom is the most important job I have. Each day, I learn something new from them and I’m so blessed to be able to be present for all of life’s little moments.”

To wrap things up, she explained for her, having kids meant that her “priorities changed.”

“It’s not about me anymore. After North was born, I wanted to be there and make memories together that we would share forever.”

Having children “really makes you realize how precious life is,” she said.

“They both give me a whole new perspective and inspire me to be the best version of myself.”

Aww, Kimmy!

Whether you love her or hate her — though let’s be real, you probably don’t so much hate her as you love to hate her — it’s obvious that she really has changed since becoming a mother.

And although it’s not like she was wild before having kids, it’s definitely been a change for the better.

She seems calmer now, and a little less concerned with what the masses think of her.

She also seems like she’s having a better time with life in general.

And since she’s expecting her third child via surrogate early next year, it’s probably good that motherhood suits her so well!

Proud of you, Kim!
