Kanye West took a break from family time in Africa to get in touch with the world via social media once again, and his purpose was to speak out against mind control … and oddly, social media. Ye returned to Twitter Saturday afternoon after…
No, really, this time we know for certain.
This time it has to be true.
This time there is definitive proof, okay?!?
This is basically what Twitter users are saying in the wake of Princess Eugenie's wedding, at which Meghan Markle was spotted in an overcoat that folks are positive was used to hide her growing baby bump.
Yes, it's time for more Meghan Markle pregnancy speculation!
Do people have a point this time around, though?
Check out her ensemble below and then check out a handful of reactions from interested Internet users…
1. Rocking the Overcoat
2. Is She Bumpin?
3. Was It Cold in There?
4. It’s Being Called!
5. Forget the Coat. Look at the Face.
6. I Lost Sleep for This!
It's been eight months since David Eason was fired from Teen Mom 2 as a result of his bigoted views and hateful slurs.
Unfortunately, this is 2018, a time when everyone has a platform — which means Dave still has a way to reach out to his fellow racists and homophobes.
Fortunately, for every idiot who pipes up in support of Eason's idiocy, there are a few thousand who are happy to condemn it — and it turns out some of them have some pretty specific shade to throw at reality TV's least favorite house husband:
1. Mr. Evans
2. Haters Gonna Hate
3. Straight Pride
4. To Be Fair …
5. Relax, Dave
6. The New Target
Kanye West has done it before and now he’s done it again … he’s deleted his Twitter and Instagram. Ye went dark around 1:45 PM PT Saturday without warning or any announcement as to why. However, his social media disappearance comes after a…
Welp, this was a different kind of Wheel of Fortune guess.
We've shared in the past some of the worst puzzle responses of all-time (such as THIS ONE), but the one featured on this page is really unlike any in game show history.
During a round of “same name,” Melanie Sinany looked at a nearly-completely board and proudly announced her guess for what was supposed to be “bridal & cold shower."
You would have said that if you saw the puzzle above, wouldn't you?
However, Sinany said Gold Shower instead, causing quite the uproar within the studio and across social media.
Host Pat Sajak simply uttered a “sorry” after this failed guess, while Vanna White stood at the board looking stunned.
(For those innocent and unaware, a golden shower is when one sexual partner urinates on the other. Ask our President about it. He'll explain.)
“A woman on Wheel of Fortune just guessed ‘GOLD’ for the part of the phrase ‘COLD SHOWER’ and I’ve never regretted failing to capture something on my phone more,” one Twitter user wrote in reply to this mishap.
“Idk how many times I hit rewind bc I was laughing soo hard and the camera was shaking."
Another chimed in as follows:
"#goldshower And just like that, Awkward Moment on @wheeloffortune and YouTube fame for Melanie after guessing Gold Shower.
"I wonder if Pat will say anything about it at the end of the game. Poker faces from Pat and Vanna were priceless."
"I feel blessed that I caught this magical Wheel of Fortune moment just now.”

While Khloe shows off cute photos of baby True, some vile and racist trolls have criticized the literal baby for being “too dark.”
It’s both colorist and racist, and Khloe has been clapping back.
But after Khloe announced that she “doesn’t see color,” her followers began to school her on why she should never say that.
Khloe took a break from reading comments after racist trolls targeted True, but now she’s calling out cowardly trolls.
“I dislike the fact that people are allowed to comment on my daughter’s skin color,” Khloe begins.
She laments: “but as soon as I comment kindly back and praise her for all that she is, the comment gets erased.”
Khloe is happy to engage with racist trolls, but is noticing that they’re a cowardly lot.
“If you have the courage to post your nasty criticism,” Khloe says. “Please allow one to defend or comment back.”
“it takes time for us to understand and to be that calm and compassionate,” Khloe continued in subsequent tweets.
“We all, as humans needs to grow and evolve,” Khloe writes. “Life lessons teach us that. I’m proud of us”
Khloe continues: “We need to learn to praise all skin tones/ethnicities! Our beauty is in our differences.”
Obviously, this is all good — and not the part for which she’s gotten into trouble.
“We can learn so much! So proud of every human who is confident in who they are,” Khloe says. “I’m in my 30s I think I’m just finding this confidence.”
“Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I’m not complaining about that,” Khloe affirms. “Please state your opinion but allow me to State mine.”
For the record, if she just wants to counter someone’s mean tweet, she could post her opinion with a screencap of their mean tweet.
“I try to put myself in their shoes,” Khloe shares. “And maybe they were brought up in a different type of household then I was.”
(Perhaps in an overtly racist household rather than one that clearly fetishized black men, which is a less hostile form of racism)
“So instead of shaming I try to educate,” Khloe concludes. “In our household we do not see color. We see emotion and action. We see love. We feed off of energy.”
One fan corrected her, tweeting: “It’s not criticism it’s racism.”
“Saying she doesn’t see color is wrong,” tweeted another. “And now she’s going to help educate? When has she ever struggled in her life???”
“It just bothers me!” confessed another. “If you raise your daughter to not see color then that kid will grow up thinking it’s not important to march for civil rights because everyone is equal.
That tweeter continued their explanation: “Only white privileged actually believes that!”
It would be nice if we all lived in a truly equal society. Unfortunately, we know that this is not the case.
“The Kardashians obviously see colour hence the black men they date/marry,” another pointed out.
That tweet continues: “Khloe has no idea how racist that comment is because she’s not educated to know that not seeing colour means she’s disregarding or denying racism on POC.
The tweet concludes: “which her daughter is currently experiencing.”
“You should definitely see color, Khloe. It is beautiful,” another writes.
“It is what defines how we perceive and experience, especially for people of color,” that same tweeter explains.
“And considering your daughter is brown, you shouldn’t teach her to be blind to that,” that person adds. “The world won’t be blind to it, and neither should she.”
Of course, while some were pleading with Khloe to understand why she was wrong so say this, others had … other thoughts.
“No one should fall for this,” insisted a conspiracy theorist.
“This is a Kardashian PR sympathy stunt,” the tweet claims. “No one has said anything about True’s skin color other than paid Kardashian bots.”
We would love to believe that this is true, but it is not. Racism and colorism are all too real.
“This is a distraction from Tristan,” the tweet theorizes. “Shame on Khloé for using her baby as a shield for her cheating boyfriend.”
While some people used the opportunity to dunk on Khloe, most of these comments have a real point.
To explain this a little more directly … “we do not see color” promotes a harmful idea.
First of all, it ignores that different people experience the world in different ways.
Children of color, and particularly black children, have to be prepared for how the world will treat them.
That needs to be acknowledged.
Even a child of extraordinary privilege can face racism that their white parent did not. Khloe needs to know this.
Second of all, “I don’t see color” implies that there might be something wrong with certain skin colors.
“I don’t see color” implies that you don’t see someone’s flaw. Skin color is, obviously, never a flaw.
You love someone for who they are, not in spite of it or because you overlook who they are.
Words matter, folks.
And Khloe isn’t just a celebrity — she’s now the mother of a biracial daughter.
Her words matter more than ever.
Julie Chen is married to Les Moonves.
And this is a rather awkward arrangement at the moment.
That's because Chen is a CBS host, likely best known for emceeing Big Brother; and Moonves is the just-ousted CBS President, who was recently removed from his position due to accusations of sexual misconduct.
Like we said: AWKWARD!
Chen briefly touched on this scandal back when news about it spread, but she hasn't said very much about it since.
Until the night of September 13, that is.
To close out an episode of Big Brother, Chen signed off in a way that showed support for her husband.
It was subtle, yet also obvious, and social media users have A LOT to say about it.
See what we mean below…

2. What Had She Said Previously About the Scandal?
3. What About on The Talk?
4. What is Moonves Accused Of?
5. Has Moonves Denied These Charges?

Alex Jones won’t be spewing his conspiracy theories on Twitter, which is now the first social media platform to permanently ban the “InfoWars” host. Twitter announced Thursday it’s suspending two accounts – @realalexjones and…
Recently, Khloe Kardashian asked fans for weight loss tips after admitting that she hit a roadblock with her post-baby body. Naturally, she asked on Twitter.
A new report says that this is exactly what Tristan Thompson does not like her doing — oversharing, engaging with fans, and constantly using Twitter.
Are Khloe and Tristan about to go to war over her social media habits?
RadarOnline reports that Tristan is tired of Khloe always being on her phone and, in particular, always being on Twitter.
“Tristan hates Twitter,” the insider reveals.
Well, that’s his prerogative. Unfortunately, he’s reportedly making it Khloe’s problem, too.
He despises the app, the source says, “and it drives him crazy that Khloe is constantly glued to her phone.”
Specifically, Tristan is said to dislike how she is constantly distracted “and replying to tweets from fans.”
“Tristan,” the insider reveals. “Is trying to get Khloe to cut back on her posts.”
That sounds annoying — to Khloe, we mean.
“And,” the source says, Tristan wants her to “stop using her phone altogether after they put True to bed at night.”
There are few things in this world more annoying than someone who gets insecure about you paying attention to multiple things at once.
Tristan has made these demands, the insider disshes, “but Khloe only listens to him if she feels like it.”
Allegedly, it’s not just that Khloe is spending time on her phone — it’s what she does on it.
“Tristan can’t stand the fact that Khloe shares so much personal stuff online,” the source claims.
“And,” the insider continues, Tristan doesn’t love that Khloe “is always posting pictures of True.”
“She says it’s just a part of her job,” the source explains. “And it’s important to interact with the fans.”
“But a lot of times she’s only paying attention to her notifications when they’re having dinner together,” the insider states.
If this report is true, we have a suspicion that we know what’s behind Tristan’s resentment towards Twitter.
Twitter, of course, is where Khloe’s fans dare to give her advice to do things like dump Tristan.
It turns out that most of the millions of people who follow Khloe don’t really think much of the guy who lacked the courtesy to keep his penis to himself while she was pregnant with his child.
In that case, this just the social media equivalent of somebody’s s–tty boyfriend not wanting them to hang out with the friends who call him out on his behavior.
And then there’s the layer of Tristan wanting Khloe to pay attention to him, as if he doesn’t have his own phone.
Normal people with healthy relationships can spend time on their respective phones together and show each other memes and stuff without feeling like the other person is ignoring them.
Building a brand means social media activity and social media engagement. Unless Khloe wants to retire and watch her revenue streams slow to a trickle, she needs to keep it up.
Additionally, those photos she shares of True? Every single one of them helps to soften Tristan’s image ever-so-slightly in the eyes of her fans.
Tristan, if he’s really making these complaints, has zero room to whine.
Khloe’s wandering eyes are glued to her phone screen. Tristan’s eyes and other body parts wandered in a very different direction.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Dennis Shields was found dead in his Trump Tower apartment. The ex-boyfriend of Bethenny Frankel was 51 years old.
His loved ones, including Bethenny, are still coping with the tragic news. Loss is never easy.
Now, the Skinnygirl mogul has taken to Twitter to thank her fans and followers for their support — and to admit just how difficult of a time this is.
On Sunday, in a carefully condensed tweet, the The Real Housewives of New York City star shared exactly how she is feeling.
“It’s hard to breathe,” Bethenny’s tweet begins.
Processing a sudden and agonizing loss is never easy. Shields was part of her life for a couple of decades.
“And,” her tweet continues. “I appreciate you giving me the space & support to try to do so.”
That means that her fans have been, for the most part, respectful and supportive on social media during this very difficult time. Good.
But Bethenny is not mincing words when it comes to sharing how she feels.
“It’s excruciating,” she admits.
Of course it is. Death is always hard, but this situation is especially difficult, as she explains.
“Sudden death is no closure,” Bethenny writes.
“And,” she continues, she is haunted by “constant questions and memories.”
(Bethenny shared this thank you message on social media, giving a succinct shout-out to followers for supporting her emotionally during these trying times)
Her tweet continues, making clear that she and Dennis Shields were still very much in each other’s orbits.
“Our relationship is current,” Bethenny reveals.
It sounds like she means that neither of them were in the other’s past. Sometimes, on-again, off-again relationships are like that.
“So,” she explains. “It’s painfully raw.”
Despite everything, she is pushing forward and dealing with her grief.
Bethenny writes that she is “trying to stay healthy and move through it.”
That is a very healthy attitude.
She explains that she is coping “with tears and close friends. Xo”
That is absolutely the way to do it. Don’t try to bury your grief or go through this sad journey alone. Mourn together.
And surround yourself with people who can help you to process a senseless loss even if they aren’t reeling from it personally. Your friends and loved ones want to support you.
Unfortunately, even as Bethenny processes this loss emotionally, it is coming up during her court battle with her vicious ex, Jason Hoppy.
In fact, just days after Shields’ passing, Hoppy’s attorney argued that Dennis Shields’ death, which was initially reported as sounding like an overdose, proves that Bethenny is a bad mom.
That is, of course, absurd. And not just because Shields’ final words indicate that his death may have been more complicated than people first assumed — featuring a lethal mix of medications in an effort to combat his back pain.
This unfortunately adds insult to injury and almost seems like an argument designed to fail in court but upset Bethenny. Even the judge compared the claim about Bethenny’s parenting to a “grenade.”
Bethenny is strong and we know that she can get through this. We just hope that it’s as painless as possible.
