Josh & Anna Duggar Make Rare Public Appearance Together: See? We’re Totally Still Married!

Folks, no matter where you fall on the political spectrum, it’s been a difficult few weeks news-wise.

And now, we might all be forced to endure another public spectacle that no one asked for or expected …

We’re talking, of course, about a Josh Duggar comeback.

Yes, if you’re a Duggar aficionado you might have noticed a lot more Josh in your life lately.

And, like everything else the Duggars do, that’s 100 percent by design.

For years, there have been rumors of Jim Bob and Michelle helping their son to return to public life, and now it seems it’s actually happening.

Perhaps they’ve been emboldened by the current political climate, or perhaps they simply feel enough time has passed that fans will have forgotten the severity of Josh’s sex crimes.

Whatever the case, the effort to rebuild Josh’s public image and welcome him back into the Duggar media empire has begun in earnest.

It started with Josh appearing in several Duggar Facebook posts back in September.

It continued as Josh and Anna celebrated the 10-year anniversary of their engagement this month — as though that’s actually something people celebrate.

Those festivities prompted rumors that Josh and Anna’s marriage is a sham, as Anna appeared undeniably miserable in all of the accompanying pics.

So that was an unexpected bump in the road of Josh’s recovery, but Jim Bob is every bit the PR genius that Kris Jenner is, so he was well-prepared for the inevitable rumors that Josh and Anna are headed for divorce.

As In Touch Weekly reports, longtime Duggar family friend Josie Bates married Kelton Balka this week.

The Bates are reality “stars” in their own right (though not nearly as famous as the Duggars), so this qualified as a public event.

And that makes it the first time Josh and Anna have attended a non-family related public event since he was embroiled in multiple consecutive sex scandals back in 2015.

So you can bet it won’t be long before Josh starts making appearances on Counting On again.

Will Duggar fans turn their backs on the family in protest?

We’d like to think so, but something tells us that won’t be the case.


Matt Roloff and Chris Marek: Totally Best Friends Now!

Matt Roloff and Chris Marek apparently have two things in common:

1. Both have seen Amy Roloff naked.

2. Both have broad feelings of respect for the other.

All fans of Little People, Big World were aware of point number-one, of course, as Matt was married to Amy for about 27 years and Marek has been dated her for just over two now.

But point number-two is new and interesting information.

For several months, there’s mostly just been assumed tension between Roloff and Marek, largely based on the simple fact that both have a romantic history with Amy.

Moreover, the pair are forced to see each other often because Amy and Matt still work together on their family farm and still live very close by to one another.

However, Marek just spoke to Radar Online and cleared up all chatter of any real issues between him and his girlfriend’s ex-husband, saying the following to this rival website:

“I think [Amy] is more accepting of us being friends. In fact Matt and I just shared the day yesterday on the farm. Everyone is fine and doing well.”

It wasn’t all that long ago that Amy made it clear how uncomfortable she was with Matt and Marek spending any real time together.

Marek admitted as much in a separate interview with Radar.

“To be honest, Amy was concerned in the beginning about how Matt and I might interact,” he said at the time, pretty much stating the obvious.

Again: Matt and Amy see each other very often.

They are both prominently involved in the lives of their four kids and two grandkids.

It makes perfect sense that Amy would be concerned about Marek interacted with Matt; the same way it would make sense for Matt to be concerned about the way Amy gets along with his serious girlfriend, Caryn Chandler.

She’s pictured here with the reality show star:

As we’ve written for a long time, though, Matt and Amy have handled their divorce and their ongoing friendship as well as could possibly be imagined.

Just over a month ago we stated that the former couple has clearly moved on and asked fans: Why are you still giving them a hard time?!?

Heck, if Marek and Matt can extend an olive branch between themselves, we’re pretty sure people who have never met either should be able to do the same.

The only issue we really care about is which couple will get engaged first:

Marek and Roloff or Roloff and Chandler?

“We are not talking about marriage yet, but everything is going well – very strong, all good,” Chris tells Radar.

He added back in March:

“I’m excited. We had a good year, we’ve done a lot of stuff and hopefully other people will enjoy the adventures we have. It’s been a good year.”

Okay, fine… so he’snow the best spoken person on the planet.

But he makes Amy happy and that’s all that matters to us!


Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson: TOTALLY Over That Whole “Cheating” Thing!

Though recent reports have Khloe and Tristan clashing over phone use but potentially discussing marriage, so much of their private lives is impossible to confirm.

But when they go out in public, eyewitness accounts can at least give us a glimpse of how things are between Khloe the (allegedly reformed) cheater.

Apparently, things between them are better than anyone has imagined.

Us Weekly reports that Khloe and Tristan have worked through at least the majority of their lingering issues over Tristan’s cheating.

“Khloe and Tristan are doing better than anyone could have expected,” an insider reveals.

Considering that most people had expected them to break up by now — actually, most people expected them to break up before Khloe went into labor — that’s an easy feat.

According to the source, “Tristan has promised Khloe he will never betray her again.”

You might scoff at that but, to hear the insider tell it: “She believes him.”

If you’re done laughing over Khloe buying Tristan’s promise to totally never cheat again, apparently she thinks that True has changed things — changed him.

“He has been a great dad to her,” the source reports.

Tristan’s alleged transformation has supposedly led to him treating Khloe differently.

Eyewitnesses spotted them on a date recently, and “Tristan held the door for her as they walked in.”

In addition to that normal and almost universal display of good manners, Tristan and Khloe reportedly “looked to be very much in love and letting loose” on a recent trip to Mexico with Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons.

E! also reports that Khloe and Tristan seem to have mended all of their fences, based upon eyewitness accounts from their time in Mexico.

“Khloe and Tristan also seem to be doing very well…” the insider reveals.

“There doesn’t seem to be tension,” the sourc econtinues. “Or any kind of hard feelings.”

Apparently, the new parents could hardly keep their hands off of one another.

The insider divulges: “Khloe seems very into him and he reciprocates.”

Though things may be going well, recent claims that Khloe and Tristan have been discussing marriage are apparently false.

“Who makes up this crap you guys post??” Khloe wrote, slamming such reports on Instagram. “This is how slow the news is? You need this ridiculous story?? What a waste.”

In real life, Khloe says, she and Tristan have been devoting time to their precious baby — who will turn 6 months old next month.

“We recently did a Mommy, Daddy and Me class and it was really fun and special,” Khloe revealed. “We learned some tips about what to do with Baby True when we swim with her.”

“She’s also getting used to dunking under the water, which she enjoys,” Khloe shared. “After each dunk, she sticks her tongue out and just smiles from ear to ear! She lovesss the water!”

That is adorable.

So, is Khloe in denial, hoping that through sheer force of will and a magic baby, she can transform Tristan from a shameless cheater into a perfect family man?

Or is Khloe right? Had Tristan just somehow not realized that cheating was bad before he was the center of a celebrity cheating scandal?

If she’s right, then nay-sayers are worrying for no good reason, and she and Tristan and True are going to live their happy family life without regrets.

If she’s wrong, then Tristan is just waiting until the dust settles before he cheats again — and one would assume that, this time, he’d be much more careful.


Scott Disick to Kourtney Kardashian: You’re Totally Nuts!

Kourtney Kardashian is about to get a break.

But it will be a short-lived one.

Due to Labor Day, there will not be a new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on E! this Sunday night, which means Kpurtney won't need to play the role of human pinata for one evening.

As any veteran viewer of this series knows well, Kourtney has been picked up throughout Season 15 by sisters Kim and Khloe.

The trio has been at odds over Kourtney seemingly NOT making them a priority, while allegedly not understanding how hard they work at their jobs.

At one point last episode, Khloe and Kim worried that Kourtney was turning into Rob, pretty much the biggest insult possible.

At another point in another episode, Khloe said she wanted to punch Kourtney in the path.

Things have gotten so ugly that a new rumor claims Kourtney will peace out ot California after her E! contract is up next year, move to New York and leave her siblings behind.

We don't exactly believe this chatter.

We're not sure if we believe anything about this feud is real; and, even if it were, Season 15 was filmed way back in December.

It's all water way down deep under the bridge at this juncture.

In the sneak peek at the September 9 installment featured here, however, Kourtney does not get into an argument with Kim or Khloe, but with another old foe instead:

Scott Disick.

It looks as if the exes, who share three adorable kids together and try to remain calm in public for the sake of their health and happiness, will have it out over Kourtney being "controlling."

Disick will even question her sanity at one point.

What is this fight about? One never knows when it comes to Scott and Kourtney.

But you can click PLAY to see parts of it play out and then tune into E! at 9/8c on September 9 to see A LOT more.

Kim Kardashian Shades Younes Bendjima, Totally Has Sister’s Back

Family first.

This basically serves as the Kardashian motto, as evidenced at the moment by the responses of Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian to the break-up of Younes Bendjima and their older sister.

They are NOT about to take any crap from the well-sculpted model.

As reported on Tuesday afternoon, Kourtney Kardashian and Bendjima have broken up.

The news went viral just a few days after photos of Bendjima hanging out in Mexico with another woman (Jordan Ozuna, actually!)  also went viral.

Elsewhere, as previously reported, and depicted on Sunday night’s season premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim and Kourtney are engaged in a major argument.

The insults flew fast and furiously between the sisters on this episode, as you can see here:

Still, like we noted above, family comes first for these two.

Therefore, with Bendjima defending himself online and sort of throwing shade at Kourtney and her loved ones, Kim has come out swinging in relative’s defense.

“once again you guys failed. I’m not attached to this ‘life’ so you can’t touch me,” Bendjima wrote on his Instagram Story yesterday, mere hours after the model claimed he was simply having “fun with [his] friends” in Mexico.

He then added:

“I know who i am where i’m from and where i’m going and that bothers you. only one opinion matter The one of my Lord. Have a wonderful day.”

Cue Kim’s response to what she deemed a steaming pile of nonsense…

“Nice pics from your ‘boys trip,’” Kim wrote in the Comments section of Bendjima account (per The Shade Room), adding a Pinocchio-inspired emoji that features a long nose.

It’s rather clear that Kim thinks Younes cheated on Kourtney.

And Khloe feels the same way.

In responseto Bendjima’s claim that he was just chilling with “friends” down south over the weekend, Khloe wrote on Instagram:

“Alexa play ‘heard it all before’ by Sunshine Anderson.”

Sadly, as we all know by now, Khloe knows a thing or two dozen about dishonest men and their wandering penises.

boys trip

Bendjima and Kardashian surprised nearly all celebrity gossip fans by remaining together for close to two years.

Most folks assumed this would be a fling back word spread that Kourtney and Younes had hooked up in Paris in late 2016.

But they managed to last for a long time, even taking vacations with Kardashian’s three kids (the latest taking place in July).

However, it became clear just a couple weeks ago that tension existed after Bendjima slammed Kourtney as being desperate for attention she shared a picture of herself in a thing.

As for what led to their split?

“They decided to take time apart, but ultimately it led to a split,” a source has told with E! News, adding:

“Kourtney is upset but she is trying to focus her energy on other things and stay busy.

“Kourtney doesn’t plan on calling attention to it publicly and wants everything to blow over.”

Fair enough. We respect her privacy and really just want her to be happy.

Unless this means a reconciliation with Scott Disick.


Kailyn Lowry: Maci Bookout Is Totally Pregnant!

Right after Kailyn Lowry was body-shamed by Farrah Abraham’s dad, eagle-eyed fans are making some body comments on Kail’s photos.

But it’s not Kailyn’s body that’s earned their focus — it’s Maci Bookout. Fans point out that Maci looks like she’s sporting a baby bump.

And they’re going after Kailyn for leaking this photo before Maci is ready to tell the world!

Fans took a break from worrying that Kailyn Lowry is already pregnant again to point out that, to their eyes, Maci Bookout looks pregnant in this pic.

One fan commented: “Maci is so pregnant.”

Another wrote: “hope Maci’s pregnant. She definitely looks it here.”

“Although it could be the shirt,” that commenter concedes. “She makes the CUTEST babies.”

She sure does.

Then, another blasted Kailyn for “revealing Maci’s pregnancy” by sharing the photo.

Kail saw that comment and wrote back immediately: “Except I didn’t.”

First of all, she didn’t leak or reveal anything except a group photo for Coffee and Convos, her podcast.

Kailyn explained the optical illusion that was making fans think that Maci is pregnant.

“It’s the way the shirt was flowing,” Kail clarifies.

We think that she’s right. Maci is tall but was leaning forward slightly in that photo.

Here’s Maci’s most recent pic on Instagram. 

it could have been taken at almost any time, sure, but … she sure doesn’t look pregnant to us.

Folks, Maci already has three children.

Bentley, Jayde, and Maverick are enough.

If she wants more kids, she can have them, but fans shouldn’t get greedy just because they crave the oxytocin rush that comes from looking at baby pictures.

Of course, Maci has entertained the idea before — she spoke to Taylor about the idea of a fourth child, though she also expressed an interest in adoption.

The fact of that matter is that some of these fans may have genuinely believed that Maci was pregnant.

Others may have just hoped that she was, or gone along with what others were saying because they wanted to feel like they were on the cutting edge of a breaking story.

And then, of course, there were those who were just trolling for a reaction from Kailyn, who is known to engage with her fans and commenters.

Lookin’ at you, person who decided that Kail sharing a group photo that was clearly intended to go public was actually her being a bad friend to Maci and revealing her secrets.

Sometimes, commenters need to chill.

As we mentioned, Maci and Taylor have spoken about another child.

That could happen via birth or via adoption.

(It is even possible, based upon Maci’s own words, that she might have another child and adopt)

If and when that happens, we have no doubts that her friend Kailyn will take every step to protect her privacy until she’s good and ready to tell the world.

Who knows better than a fellow Teen Mom how personal a baby bump can be?

Maci can no longer enjoy that Ryan Edwards is in jail, because he was released, but she still has the support of her friends.


Farrah Abraham: I’d Totally Mess with My Daughter’s Face, But It’s Illegal!

How is Farrah Abraham so awful?

Serious question.

Does she try? She has to try, right?

Maybe she keeps a little diary in which she jots down any ideas she has about terrible things she can do that will get her some attention, that’s a possibility.

Or perhaps she’s smarter than we think she is, and she pretends to be completely incapable of using words as yet another way to get people to talk about her.

Let’s hope that one of those is the case, because if not, if she really is just that bad … well, there’s only so much faith we can lose in humanity, you know?

There are countless examples of Farrah’s revolting ways, but this week alone, she’s really outdone herself.

To start, she was officially charged with battery after that incident last month in which she got violent with a security guard at a hotel in Beverly Hills.

She was also charged with resisting arrest, because apparently you can’t tell police officers to go f-ck themselves without facing some consequences.

After that, she uploaded a video on Facebook in which she was heard trying to convince her poor daughter, Sophia, that it would be a funny prank to tell someone that her dog had died.

And then, just a day later, her dog actually died.

While that’s very sad, of course Farrah had to make it weird by filming a video of herself crying with Sophia over the dog’s body and uploading it to Instagram.

She made it even weirder by taking the dog’s remains to a taxidermist, and calling paparazzi so cameras would be around to catch that bizarre moment.

Like we said, she’s outdone herself this week.

And now, thanks to a new interview, she’s managed to make things even worse.

During the interview, Farrah brought up the topic of altering Sophia’s appearance — Sophia is nine years old, in case you’d forgotten.

“The only thing that Sophia has mentioned that she wanted was cosmetic dentistry, like I have,” she said.

Yep, Sophia, who likely still has some baby teeth, wants veneers, just like her mama!

She was asked about how old Sophia would have to be before she considered getting the veneers, and it really sounds like it it were up to Farrah, she’d already have them.

“It’s not really my eyes,” she explained, “it’s like health codes and what’s legal.”

“The law for that in Texas, where we move back and forth through, is I believe 16 for her to have her cosmetic dentistry done to her teeth.”

It’s interesting, because she could have very easily given an answer along the lines of “she can get them herself as soon as she turns 18.”

You know, a normal answer.

Instead, she admitted that she’s looked up the laws about getting cosmetic procedures done on a child.

And that’s … well, that’s something else.

Sophia was actually there during the interview, and she was asked if she wanted to be just like her mom when she grows up.

“Sophia’s gonna be better than her mom!” Farrah answered.

“Better than my mom,” Sophia echoed.

Thank goodness for that.

It’s just so alarming that Farrah actually seems to have thought about getting her daughter veneers — and possibly other procedures, considering that she said veneers were “the only thing” Sophia’s expressed interest in so far.

Then again, it really shouldn’t be. After all, this is the girl who tried waxing her daughter’s eyebrows when she was three years old

Later in the interview, Farrah was asked about the current state of her relationship with her mother, Debra Danielsen.

“You know what, we have the best relationship,” she answered. “I keep it comfortable with us for our safety and positivity.”

“My mom’s in her own space, and I am in mine, and it’s great.”

She also had one thing to say about her departure from Teen Mom OG — “Thank God.”

However, it sounds like she’s on the lookout for another reality show to take her own.

“I think reality TV loves me,” she said, “I always willl love reality TV.”

Bless her immodest little heart, she added “I’m so well-known and so great in that, but I also know after 10 years of doing something, it’s just natural progression to keep growing — producing, directing, screenwriting, filming.”

“I just want progression.”

If she wants progression in her career, why wouldn’t she want the same in her parenting skills?

Something to think about.


Jason Mraz: I’ve Totally Slept with Men!

Jason Mraz once famously sang “I’m Yours” to anyone who would listen.

In a new interview with Billboard, however, the artist explains why this is a tad bit ironic:

It turns out that, even while dating his wife, Mraz actually was NOT hers.

The dude slept around a lot before settling down — and not even with just one gender, either!

If you recall, the 41-year-old made headlines last month after writing the line “I am bi your side” in a love poem to the LGBTQ community in honor of gay pride month…

… and now we know why.

“Honestly, I didn’t realize it was going to be so telling,” he told the aforementioned publication about his poem, prior to dropping a rather explosive bombshell:

“But I’ve had experiences with men, even while I was dating the woman who became my wife. It was like, ‘Wow, does that mean I am gay?’”

Wait, whatt????

Mraz was sleeping with men while dating his very serious girlfriend and now-wife???


And he continued in this interview:

“My wife laid it out for me. She calls it ‘two spirit,’ which is what the Native Americans call someone who can love both man and woman. I really like that.”

Oh, ummm. Okay then. Two spirit sexuality. There you have it, folks.

According to The New York Times, “Two Spirit” was a term coined in the early 1990s at a conference for gay and lesbian Native Americans.

It was used then as an umbrella phrase with no specific description of gender or sexual orientation.

Might that explain why Mraz, as you can see above and below, often holds up two fingers for his fans?


Mraz and Christina Carano got married in October of 2015 after four years of dating; they exchanged vows at the time in an intimate outdoor ceremony in Virginia.

The songwriter announced the news on Instagram back then, gushing that he was “the luckiest man in the world.”

“I felt an instant connection to her and have admired her integrity and practices since day one,” Mraz said years ago of Carano.

“She is whole-hearted in every action, is extremely generous, completely drama-free, and has the most intuitive-genius-mind in the kitchen.

“Not to mention her smile absolutely melts me.”

It’s also worth noting that this isn’t the first time Mraz has opened up about his sexuality.

In a 2005 interview with Genre magazine, the singer said he was “bisexually open-minded,” telling the publication:

“I have never been in a sexual relationship with a man. If the right one came along, then sure.”

In this case, he concluded:

“I had a gay friend I was hanging out with just about every day. We were basically best friends. It took me about three months before I realized, ‘Oh my god, we’re dating.’

“Right before I moved to California, he gave me a pretty strong-willed kiss goodbye, which I have never experienced before.

“Unfortunately, he had a little bit more facial hair than I like.”
