Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: Welcome… Alex Rodriguez?!?

As evidenced by the Kim Kardashian sex tape, at least one cast member on Keeping Up with the Kardashians knows a thing or two about how to handle a rod.

This was relevant on Sunday night because former Major League Baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez, often referred to by the nickname “A. Rod,” made an unexpected cameo on the popular reality series.

Can’t say we saw that coming.

Also the boyfriend of Jennifer Lopez, Rodriguez was on hand to help the ladies with their baseball skills in anticipation of a charity game that was held to raise money for the Watts Community Center.

This is an interest in which Kris Jenner has often decided to devote her time and interest.

The big and very poorly-played game pitted the Kardashian family — including Kim, Kourtney, a then-pregnant Khloe, Kris and Kendall — against family pal Tito Jackson and his loved ones.

The Kardashians called themselves the Calabasas Peaches due to the movie A League of Their Own… and they were very much in a league of their own terriblenesss.

“The Jacksons have to go down,” Rodriguez said in an attempt to coach the women up, adding:

“Dear God, let us all play like New York Yankees.”

(Editor’s Note: The Yankees just lost a playoff game by a score of 16-1 and a series to their hated rival, the Boston Red Sox, so perhaps playing like the most recent version of the Bronx Bombers was not a great idea.)

Editor’s Note 2: A. Rod is a giant tool.)

In the end, the Jacksons thrashed the Kardashians, with Kim going down on strikes faster than she went down on Ray J in the aforementioned sex tape.

“We should just hand over the check now because we suck,” she later said.

Still, the game raised $ 15,000 for a charity that helps underprivileged kids.’

“I can’t wait to celebrate all the hard work that was put into the community center,’ said Kris as the family toured the kitchen, sports facilities and computer center at the facility.

Elsewhere, Scott Disick and Khloe Kardashian played a pretty dumb prank on Kris by pretending that a talented artist named Art Vandelay had made some paintings.

They then dropped these paintings off at Jenner’s house and watched as she wandered around her house, wondering where to hang them.

So much for her so-called expertise in the world of expensive art, right?!?

Disick and Kardashian were intent on embarrassing their snobby loved one, but soon realized they had maybe gone too far.

“We have to break it to her that we’re completely lying…and basically giving her fraudulent paintings,” Disick noted in a confessional.

Over dinner at Nobu that evening, they allowed Kris to schmooze with the fake artist before they dropped the bombshell that she had been had.

“What? No!” Kris yelled upon learning that the paintings had been created by Khloe in her garage.

“You are pieces of sh-t…you had me this time!” Jenner boomed.

Finally, because the writers are truly out of storyline material, Kourtney ordered a DNA test.

“Oh my God I’m Middle Eastern and North African!’ said Kourtney, who was also “4.5 percent French.”

“I’m so white,” complained Kendall, while Khloe added:

“I’m 41.5 percent Middle Eastern.”

Fascinating, right?

Teen Mom OG Recap: Welcome to the Dysfunctional Family!

They are officially on board.

Teen Mom OG kicked off Season 8 on Monday, October 1 with an intense 90-minute episode that introduced a pair of new faces to the franchse:

  1. Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
  2. Cheyenne Floyd, a former cast member on MTV's The Challenge who has a daughter with another Season 8 addition, Cory Wharton.

What were this pair up to on the opening installment?

We learned just how complicated of a relationship Floyd and Wharton find themselves in, while we also got a pretty good idea of why Bristol and Dakota Meyer recent filed for divorce.

Scroll down for a recap of all the events from an interesting and emotional Season 8 premiere…

1. Her Life Isn’t Perfect

Bristol arrives
This was a message Bristol said she wanted to send, although it’s not clear why anyone would think that a 27-year woman with three kids by two men – with a famously polarizing mother – would be living a perfect life. Regardless, the premiere gave us a look look at the difficulties in her marriage.

2. Yup, It’s Sarah Palin

Yup its sarah palin
We’re just saying. The woman who came close to being the second most powerful person on Earth made a cameo early in the premiere.

3. Worlds Apart

Bristol and dakota
While Bristol and Meyer live together in Austin, Bristol was off in Arizona with her mom celebrating her sister Piper’s bachelorette party to opem the premiere, while Dakota took the kids to see his parents in Kentucky. Palin told the camera that her husband’s PTSD has been “hard on our marriage.”

4. PTSD?

Ptsd
Yes. Meyer received the Medal of Honor after 2009’s Battle of Ganjgal, where he witnessed the deaths of his entire team. He’s been battling those demons and scars ever since.

5. What are Things Like for This Veteran?

Speaking with his dad and the show’s producers, Meyer talked about joining the Marines. “When I joined, it was 110% that you will be going to war soon,” he said on air. “Joining, I could have never knew what I was getting into. You can say, ‘Yeah, I’m ready to get shot at,’ but you’re talking at a 17 year old kid.”

6. More from Dakota:

“We got in a big gunfight and everybody with me is dead,” he continued. “When I first came home, train wreck is not even, that’s an understatement. Anxiety got me real bad.” Meyer added that his children are the “reason I get up every day,” saying they “add to the quality of life, they’re everything.”

Counting On Recap: Kendra, Joseph Duggar Welcome Baby Garrett!!

Back in June, Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell welcomed the birth of their first child, a precious baby boy named Garrett David.

Now, almost four months later, Counting On has aired Kendra’s difficult delivery episode.

As difficult as it was for fans to see her in so much discomfort, it was even harder for Joe. It was hardest of all, of course, for Kendra herself.

Many Duggar fans were surprised when they learned that Kendra gave birth in a hospital. The Duggar family is big on home births for … complicated cultural reasons.

“Kendra would lay down and she would have a contraction,” Joe explained.

“So,” he continued. “The only comfortable position for her was standing on her feet.”

She was having enough discomfort and difficulty that they went to the hospital.

And that was a very smart move.

Kendra kept holding her breath instinctively while in pain, but 

Kendra’s labor would ultimately last 13 hours.

As her contractions grew closer and closer together, her water still had not broken.

Fortunately, she was in the hospital, so the doctor was able to help her with that.

“Don’t push,” Kendra’s mother coached her as her labor grew more intense. “Just breathe.”

Joe was riding an emotional high, but his actual feelings were very conflicted.

“It’s exciting because our baby’s almost here,” he admitted. “But also it’s a hard time because I have to see Kendra go through the hardest time of her life.”

When little Garrett David was born, however, Joseph was positively over the moon.

“He’s here, he’s here!” Joe kept repeating.

Kendra chimed in, cooing over her “sweet little guy.”

Fans have known about this precious baby for months, but seeing his birth on Counting On gave them a whole new perspective.

Part of the appeal of the Duggars is how viewers feel that they’ve been with the family every step of the way, even through births. That can really hook you.

That said, a number of viewers can’t help but wonder: what comes next?

Obiously, Joe and Kendra are busy being new parents to their baby and Kendra is probably still in the later stages of healing from childbirth.

But fans realize that, for most of their marriage, Kendra has been pregnant with their honeymoon baby. What is next for the couple?

A lot of married couples have a child early on in their marriage. After they give birth, they focus on parenting but still make time to enjoy their married state.

But Joe and Kendra are not most couples — they’re Duggars. Fans figure that it’s only a matter of time before baby #2 is on the way.

That said, considering how difficult Kendra’s childbirth was, will she be so eager to try again? And having seen and heard her pain, will Joe be in any hurry to return to a delivery room?

Probably not. But they may feel an obligation to, either from family and community pressure or from religious beliefs.

And if you spend enough time around a precious baby like Garrett, sometimes the pain of childbirth becomes a distant memory … and all that you can think about is how much you’d like to have another.

Alaskan Bush People Season Premiere Recap: Welcome to Washington!

The Season 8 premiere of Alaskan Bush People focused on two very different prognoses:

1. How would the Browns fare now that they are no longer living in Alaska?

2. How is Ami Brown doing after her lung cancer diagnosis?

Indeed, the Discovery Channel may need to consider a name change for this long-running reality show now that Billy Brown and company have moved away from their native Alaska.

They were forced to do so after Amy’s aforementioned diagnosis because they had to be a lot closer to medical care than they were while living in the middle of the woods.

The family tried California at first due to the top-notch hospitals in the state.

But living there, even temporarily, “really took a toll on everybody,” Gabe explained on Sunday night’s premiere, detailing how his loved ones just aren’t cut out for city life.

While planning on building a permanent homestead (the new Browntown), the family constructed temporary tent housing and tried to get used to the Washington wilderness.

“I can hardly stand the heat,” Bear said at one point.

“And then to have to constantly watch the ground for snakes – that’s a big adjustment from Alaska.”

Billy, however, was in good spirits.

First, for a rather unusual reason.

“We’ve got mountain lions here! How cool is that?!” he said of the area’s fauna. “It feels like home again because we have to watch our backs.”

But Billy was mostly psyched on this episode because he said Ami’s cancer is in remission.

This is a mini miracle, considering Ami Brown had been told she had stage 4 lung cancer, which is nearly as bad as it can get.

To be frank, we did not expect her to be alive right now, let alone filming a new season and having a new lease on life.

“She still has stage 0 primary, and there are still traces,” Billy said on the premiere, adding hopefully:

“They took the majority out, and the growth is really slow. She is doing good, but the docs made it clear that we have to live in a place where she can go to the hospital at any time.”

Hence why the Alaskan Bush People can’t ever return to their beloved Alaska.

But that’s a worthwhile tradeoff if it means their beloved Ami will be around for a long time to come.

“To be out of the city and in the mountains is a blessing in itself and being given second chance is great,” Ami said on Sunday, admitting she feels “better than I have in a lot of years, but I still don’t have all my strength back yet.”

Still, it’s amazing she’s gotten this far.

Whatever happens next, Billy and his kids are prepared. And grateful.

“We’ve fought hard. We deserve to be here,” Billy said on the premiere. “I think this is definitely the biggest adventure we’ve had.”
