Shauna Sexton Actually Visits Ben Affleck in Rehab

All across the Internet these days, there are cries of concern over Ben Affleck.

That’s what happens when you sadly enter rehab for a third time.

But if you listen closely enough, there’s another sound starting to make its way around the Web.

Or at least the possibility of a sound.

By which we mean the following:

Might wedding bells be ringing down the line for Shauna Sexton and Ben Affleck?!?

This is not anything we could have imagined writing back when the actor started dating the Playmate this summer. It seemed at the time like the epitome of a fling.

Mere weeks after talk of the romance spread throughout the globe, Affleck entered rehab because it had become clear that he fell hard off the wagon while partying with Sexton.

But… well… Sexton is still around.

She and Affleck may be about more than bumping proverbial uglies after all.

Last week, we reported that Affleck actually left his treatment center for a brief period of time in order to hang out with Sexton.

And now comes the news that Sexton paid Affleck a visit in rehab on Sunday morning.

The 22-year-old was spotted leaving the Malibu treatment facility at which Affleck has been staying at for the last three weeks, according to People Magazine and other outlets.

She was even driving Affleck’s Ford SVU at the time.

This seems like a big deal for two reasons:

FIRST, because a man does not just lend a woman his wheels unless things are very serious.

SECOND, because this means Affleck is letting Sexton see him at his most vulnerable… and that she wants to see him at his most vulnerable.

The previous assumption had been that she was just sticking around for the booze and the wealth and the Hollywood lifestyle. But here she remains. Still around.

Sexton recently clapped back at a fan on Instagram who accused her of getting Affleck “thrown in rehab.”

She made it clear that she isn’t about to take misguided flak from a bunch of strangers.

“Never drank around or with him for the record,” Sexton wrote in a number of responses in the comments section of a photo of her drinking red wine, adding:

I love to drink and party! Absolutely dude. Most 22 year olds do…

“Do these mistakes mean I would disrespect someone’s hard-earned sobriety by drinking with them or in front of them? Hell no. I have limitless respect for those who take action and actually do something about it.

“With that being said, Ben is a grown ass man, baby. He makes his own decisions. Blaming a 22-year-old for someone’s 3rd time in rehab is just ridiculous.

“He is human. I am human.”

Amen. Well said, Shauna.

Abby Lee Miller Receives Visits, Comfort From Dance Mom Alums

Abby Lee Miller continues to battle cancer as she recovers from her latest emergency surgery. Life in the hospital is … not fun.

So who better to stop by to cheer her up than some Dance Moms alums?

There were, of course, pictures. Take a look!

Maesi Caes took to Instagram to share a photo from her visit with Abby Lee Miller.

She doesn’t specify why she needed to wear a face mask, but we suspect that it may have been a precaution to keep her from infecting Miller, who is probably immunocompromised.

“HERO,” Maesi writes, defining the word as: “‘An ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles'”

From a certain point of view, Maesi suggests, this definition could apply to her former dance teacher.

“…Miss Abby,” Maesi continues. “Thank you for being my hero.”

Maesi wasn’t the only one who showed up to lend some moral support.

“A very glum afternoon quickly turned BRIGHT,” Elliana Walmsley wrote on Instagram.

“Seeing the BEAUTIFUL @therealabbylee!” her caption continued.

Elliana gushed: “Loved chatting with her about old times, new times, and future times!!!!”

“A visit wouldn’t be complete without getting a private lesson! Feet!” she jokes. “Let’s show Miss Abby SOME LOVE by commenting her fav emojis.”

Abby Lee Miller herself shared an image of her with both girls, who were each wearing face masks.

“I guess it doesn’t matter where I am or what I’m doing,” Miller writes in the caption.

“The kids,” she says. “Always migrate right toward me!”

She then makes a joke.

Miller suggests: “I guess I’m more fun than their moms!”

Back in May, Abby Lee Miller sported a wig while receiving a visit from another Dance Moms alum, JoJo Siwa.

These days, JoJo is busy feuding with Danielle Bregoli. But in May, she made time for a visit.

Keeping to her usual, uber-positive brand, JoJo wrote: “Got to see my favorite today!”

“Abby you have changed my life for forever,” JoJo gushed. “I am so thankful for everything you have done for me.

JoJo wrote that Miller taught her “Table manners, how to survive in a plastic bubble, and more!”

“Thank you for letting us come by and visit you today!” JoJo wrote. “I love you. FOREVER.”

Millerhas also been visited by her godchild, Maddie Pietrusinski.

All of these visits are wonderful.

Is there a risk that Miller could be exposed to some sort of outside germs or infection? Unfortunately, yes.

But it seems that her doctors feel that the brightening of her mood brought on by these visits is worth it.

Abby Lee Miller underwent emergency spinal surgery when she was suddenly experiencing paralysis.

Sadly, it was worse than an infection. Miller was diagnosed with cancer. Specifically, Burkitt lymphoma.

Though reports claimt hat Miller is preparting for the worst, the good news is that the recovery rate for this cancer is high, and that it responds quickly to treatment.

Fans hold out hope that Miller will make a full recovery, and soon.

It looks like she’s expected to make it just fine — because Dance Moms is holding auditions for its next season, and Miller herself is set to star.

Jill Duggar Visits a Mosque for Ramadan, Gets Blasted by Fans: Show Some RESPECT!!

Jill Duggar is going above and beyond to avoid her husband!

Just kidding — though, given Derick Dillard's latest remarks about trans people, who would blame her?

No, Jill spent some time at a mosque for Ramadan, and fans took her to task for not covering her hair for the visit. Are they right?

In the video that we've attached, Jill shows off her visit to a mosque.

"Okay where are we at?"

A hijabi woman beside her (who, we have to say, is in a wonderfully colorful outfit) answers, saying:

"We are at a mosque and we have Iraqi feast for Ramadan. We're glad to see you here!"

As you probably know, during the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims fast, abstaining from certain activities such as food during the daylight hours.

(People with health restrictions are exempted)

After night falls, however, there is a feast to break the fast. Jill's companion introduces her to some traditional Iraqi dishes.

The video's caption reads:

"While Derick was with the men (guys and girls have separate sections), Jill enjoyed some Iraqi food with friends."

That's great and all, but a number of fans had major concerns about Jill's hair.

"You shouldn’t go into a mosque not covered out of respect. You also take off your shoes."

They're not suggesting that Jill don a hijab on a permanent basis, but merely adhere to a dress code. 

"She should have had her head covered in a mosque out of respect."

Many houses of worship have dress codes.

"That right there speaks volumes about her respect."

That said, we don't know if this particular mosque has this concern about guests.

Not all Muslims wear hijabs (or any other hair covering), and some mosques may not enforce a dress code for guests.

There was plenty of addition commentary, including fears that Jill might be proselytizing under very inappropriate circumstances.

"I really hope you aren't trying to convert Muslims."

That probably wasn't the case, otherwise, Jill and Dercik would be begging fans for money like they do when they go on missionary trips.

"Of course it’s a PR stunt. Notice they only use these kind of posts when Derick has done something wrong. It absolutely can’t be taken seriously and it’s actually more offensive knowing it’s all an act."

A lot of people share the theory that this is an example of her trying to soften their image after Derick's repeated homophobic and transphobic rants.

"it’s damage control for her all of her husbands Twitter rants lol"

Others think that it has less to do with Derick and more to do with the couple's shared desire for attention.

"It’s all for attention to make themselves look better ! It’s all for show. They have one path only ! Have you not seen the hate he spews on his social media ??"

Others, however, were full of compliments for Jill.

"Awesome that you love and honor others in this way."

They even defended her from some (fellow) fundamentalists who thought that Jill was consorting with "the enemy."

"People forget it is possible to show compassion without compromising your own convictions."

Others offered Jill kudos for attending the feast instead of just poting a few empty words.

"I will say, Jill put her money where her mouth is with this one and I think it’s great. The more barriers we break down the better."

True!

"People!!! It's between Jill & God what, where & why she was doing what she was. You don't have to agree with someone on religion, or anything for that matter, to show a little kindness & love."

Accurate.

"There are a lot of things between Islam and Christianity that are quite similar. The big difference is the role of Jesus Christ. And as followers of Jesus Christ, we know that we follow the true faith. But that doesn’t mean we should judge others. It’s not our place. Have a great and blessed day!"

Jesus is considered a holy man within Islam.

Others took Jill's more conservative critics to task.

"Seriously? People are blasting OTHER Christians for joining in with our brothers and sisters of another Abrahamic faith? (Abrahamic faiths being Christianity, Islam, and Judaism)."

it's true. In fact, despite the academic differences, many have wondered if Judaism, Christianity, and Islam shouldn't be considered different branches of the same faith.

Muslims themselves appreciated the post.

"You are an amazing human being and I love that you are sharing Ramadan with us. Ramadan is a holy month full of love and charity. You are an amazing woman Jill, and as a Muslim American I love y’all & yalls show."

While many people's concerns over Jill's lack of hair-covering was probably genuine and came from a good place, it is important to not speak over people.

It doesn't sound like Jill did anything wrong … in this one, particular instance.

Shame Jill when she deserves it, but only when she deserves it.
