Back in September, Alaskan Bush People star Matt Brown checked himself into rehab after a family intervention.
Now there is some very promising news that is sure to please the entire Brown family.
Matt is out of rehab!
RadarOnline reports that Matt Brown is freshly out of rehab, which he had entered to get a handle on his drinking.
“Matt voluntarily checked himself out of rehab in late October,” reveals an insider close to the Brown family.
“And,” the source shares. “He is continuing outpatient treatment at a nearby facility.”
That is very good to know — sometimes, a relapse right after leaving rehab is a risk.
Outpatient treatments can help provide continued support.
“He is doing really good right now,” the insider says.
“And,” the source elaborates. “He is committed to his sobriety.”
“His family is very proud of him,” the insider adds.
That is no surprise. Sobriety can be difficult to achieve.
The Brown family loves and supports Matt and they know how difficult it can be to overcome a substance abuse issue.
There’s more to leaving rehab than the support of your family — though that, of course, is important.
“Matt has been attending recovery meetings,” the source says.
The insider says that Matt has used these peer groups “and has been working with a sober coach.”
We previously reported that Matt would hire a sober coach, even when he was still in rehab.
A sobriety coach can provide one-on-one assistance that a support group often cannot.
The source says that Matt is doing all of this “as well as going to therapy and counseling to battle his addictions.”
It’s great that Matt is recovering and is on a path to avoid a relapse.
The reason that he (once again) struggled with alcohol abuse was, as is usually the case, self-medication.
It was explained that he started drinking as a “way to deal with his mother Ami’s cancer diagnosis.”
There were times last year when everyone — including the Brown family — believed that Ami would die from lung cancer.
The odds were stacked against her, but she defied all expectations.
But the stress of her cancer battle — and the health scares that followed — exacted a toll on her loved ones, including Matt.
As we previously reported, Matt Brown was feeling “ready to leave” after only a few weeks of rehab.
“Matt thinks that he is ready to leave after 30 days and everyone is urging him to stay in,” a worried source revealed at the time.
“He says that he is almost ready and can handle this on his own now,” that insider added.
According to reports, he wisely remained until he had completed his 30-day stint.
He was also sure to line up all of these safeguards so that he could continue to maintain his health.
This was Matt’s second time having to fight an uphill battle to regain his sobriety.
The first time was in 2016.
At that time, he became more withdrawn and realized that his behavior and drinking were caught in a downward spiral.
Fortunately, Matt has a very supportive family — and the resources to afford first-rate care and counseling to tackle this issue head-on.
Southern Charm is no stranger to controversy — most notably the stunning rise and fall of Thomas Ravenel.
This time, it’s Cameran Eubanks who’s been put in the hotseat. Not by police, but by her own followers.
When she shared her opinion about vaccines, the backlash was so intense that she deleted her tweet — and apologized.
On Thursday, Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks decided to encourage her followers to make responsible health decisions.
She posted a photo of the bandage on her arm, announcing that she had just receive her flu vaccine for this year.
Cameran then encouraged her fans and followers to do the same.
It’s not just the right thing to do for themselves — it can help to protect others, including those with compromised immune systems.
The backlash to her post was enough that she promptly deleted it.
After deleting her post, she shared an undeserved apology message with her followers.
“I just deleted a post that I made today about my belief in getting the flu shot,” she began.
“Never did I think it would cause such a fuss,” she explains.
A few years ago, it might not have. But thanks to internet algorithms, dangerous misinformation spreads like a virus.
“I’m sorry to all I offended who don’t believe in vaccinating themselves and their children,” she writes.
“If you do not vaccinate I do not think you are stupid or wrong,” Cameran generously claims.
Not everyone would be so charitable in their assessment of people who endanger their children and others by believing falsehoods.
“We just disagree,” she writes.
“I have always said I will not talk about religion or politics on social media,” Cameran concludes. “And now I’m adding vaccines too.”
This is not the first time that Cameran has been taken aback by an unexpected controversy.
“Palmer had hers today,” Cameran shared about her 11-month-old. “I played baby shark and not even a whimper. Couldn’t believe it. God bless that annoying ass song!”
Her Southern Charm costar, the incomparable Patricia Altschul, also posted on Thursday after she received her flu shot.
“@caconover is right! I just had my flu shot and I can only walk backwards #southerncharm #medicine.”
Craig Conover, everyone’s favorite formerly reformed playboy who talks like a frat guy, has some wild opinions about vaccines.
He called them a “crazy government shot” that would force him to walk backwards for the rest of his life.
Honestly, that’s not the worst thing that we’ve heard an anti-vaxxer say, but … that’s not saying much.
Patricia was not the only one who leapt to Cameran’s defense.
“Um your post literally reminded me to sign up for ours,” wrote one fan. “Appointments booked. Thank you for posting about it!”
“It’s not a matter of belief or disbelief, nor opinion. It’s a matter of science and facts,” correctly asserted another fan.
That comment continued: “Vaccines save lives and suffering and those who choose not to certainly have the right to that choice, but yeah, they are wrong.”
“My family doesn’t get the flu shot,” wrote another commenter. “And I still found nothing wrong with your post!”
Vaccinations aren’t just a personal decision — they help protect those with compromised immune systems through “herd immunity.”
Someone whose immune system doesn’t function at full capacity cannot be vaccinated, so they are vulnerable to the flu — or something worse, like measles.
But everyone with whom they come into contact is vaccinated, then they are insulated by the “herd” and less likely to be exposed to a contagion.
As for the theories about vaccines being dangerous … some of that is misinformation, and some is fearmongering.
(Personal note: I am one of the one-in-a-million people who had a strongly adverse reaction to a vaccination as an infant; the real virus would have been worse and I’m glad that I was vaccinated)
Vaccines do not cause autism, but even if they did, we would all rather see a child be autistic than die of a preventable disease.

By now, you’ve certainly heard the news that Jay Z cheated on Beyonce.
After all, you’d have go back to the infidelities of Zeus or William Jefferson Clinton to find an affair that’s been so thoroughly documented, rhapsodized, scrutinized, and bemoaned.
First, Bey told us the tale of “Becky With the Good Hair” on her Lemonade album, one of the most stirring chronicles of a scorned spouse’s emotional roller coaster ride in recent memory.
Shortly thereafter, Jay admitted to cheating and thoroughly abased himself on his 4:44 album.
He later claimed that his infidelity made him a better person, but since Queen Bey has chosen to ignore that foolishness, we will as well.
In the months since the Carter kingdom nearly came crumbling down, Jay and Bey have worked hard to restore trust and rebuild their relationship.
And now it seems they want their loyal subjects to know that the royal couple of hip-hop is still reigning supreme together.
Last night, Jay and Bey kicked off their On the Run II in Cardiff in the U.K.
The concert featured a short film that seemed to be created for the sole purpose of demonstrating to fans that all is well in Carter Land.
The montage showed Jay and Beyonce renewing their vows and holding babies while a series of Hallmark-y affirmations flashed on the screen:
“THIS IS REAL LOVE” “LOVE IS UNIVERSAL” and “LOVE NEVER CHANGES,” they read.
We get it, you guys!
Damn, y’all are like one of those couples on Facebook that gets a joint account and posts constant love memes after one of them gets caught sleeping around.
This is the A-list celebrity equivalent of your broke friend constantly posting quotes from Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.
So yes, the montage featured lots of showy confirmations that Jay and Bey are very much still in love.
It also featured something much more hilarious — stunt babies!
“At the end of the show the Carter babies were included in a family collage [however] the babies in the film clip at the beginning were not their children,” a source close to the couple tells People magazine.
It’s an interesting detail that’s left some fans with a big question:
Is Jay and Bey’s reconciliation as fake as their onscreen offspring?!
Hey! Prince Harry got married to Meghan Markle on Saturday, May 19!
Perhaps you've heard.
Perhaps you've also read through the extensive coverage ofthe Royal Wedding on The Hollywood Gossip or, for some reason, on other websites around the Internet.
But we're guessing there's one major moment that you may have missed.
And that was arguably the most romantic and important moment of all…
… the moment Meghan and Harry vowed to love each other for all of eternity.
In the following video, we're first treated Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir singing an incredible rendition of "Stand By Me."
From there, we're taken to the Royal Exchanging of Vows, as Markle rocks her amazing wedding gown and then she and Harry make certain special promises to each other.
The footage may need to be watched with a box of Kleenex by your side.
"I Meghan, take you, Harry, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward," says Harry to open his vows, adding:
"For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God's holy law. In the presence of God I make this vow."
And then Markle echoes this sentiment:
I Harry, take you, Meghan, to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God's holy law.
In the presence of God I make this vow.
Following his marriage, Harry is now the Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel and will be known around Kensington Palce as His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex.
Markle, meanwhile, is Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex.
Pretty cool, huh?
But those titles would not be possible without the vows exchanged below.
