Ex-RNC Chair on Khashoggi Yeah, Sure, a ‘Fist Fight’ Broke Out … Calls BS on Saudi Arabia


The former head of the RNC doesn’t believe a word of Saudi Arabia’s explanation of how journalist Jamal Khashoggi died, and he doesn’t buy Trump‘s denial of financial ties there.

We got Michael Steele Saturday at the L.A. Convention Center during Politicon 2018 and asked what he made of Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor insisting that Khashoggi had gotten into a fist fight inside the country’s consulate in Turkey … which led to his death.

It’s clear he thinks the Saudi Arabian goverment’s full of it — as he describes just how unlikely it is for such a scenario to play out … especially in light of how brutal his murder has been described by Turkish officials. He’s said to have been dismembered.

As for Trump very publicly declaring he has “no financial interests in Saudi Arabia” … Mike’s got a theory on that too. Funny how one word can change the meaning of something so drastically … which the President is no stranger to at this point. #WordsMatter

Kim Kardashian: Yeah, I’m Done With Kanye West and His BS

In the wake of Kanye’s pro-Trump rant on Saturday Night Live, a lot of his former fans are wondering where Kim Kardashian will draw the line.

A new report says that she already has.

In fact, Kim and Kanye are allegedly living separate lives and just hoping that no one will notice.

Life & Style reports that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, though still married, are leading separate lives.

“Kim and Kanye have grown further and further apart,” the insider reports.

This separation is said to exist on multiple levels.

The source says that Kim and Kanye have grown distant both “emotionally and physically.”

That does not sound like a healthy marriage.

“They not only sleep in separate rooms,” the insider continues.

The source says: “[but] they’re also leading separate lives at this point.”

Separate bedrooms isn’t so unusual — some people love each other but have different schedules, or prefer different sleeping environments.

But this report claims that Kim and Kanye aren’t just accommodating their respective sleeping needs — that they’re essentially no longer living as husband and wife.

As the insider claims: “They’re pretty much estranged.”

As an example, the tabloid cites September 23.

On that date, Kim was cheering on North at her very first fashion show.

At the same time, Kanye was with Saint at a Cubs game, throwing the first pitch — thousands of miles away.

To hear Life & Style tell it, this isn’t just how their schedules worked at that moment.

It was, instead, an alleged example of how Kim and Kanye have chosen to consciously separate their lives.

Kim and Kanye have allegedly been “fighting a lot.”

There’s the infamous incident in which Kanye West needed a band-aid., as described on a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Kim revealed that he became increasingly agitated with Kim as she brought him different bandages, because none of them met his standards.

Instead of getting it himself or having their housekeeper get it for him, Kanye seemed adamant that Kim cater to him.

“I think so many husbands feel neglected when you start having kids,” Khloe theorized. “And then all of their attention gets taken away.”

Khloe has some theories that paint a really horrifying vision of what relationships in her family are like.

“Sometimes men still want to be treated as, like, the first baby,” Khloe says, to our horror.

“I know Kim is so overwhelmed,” Khloe says, as if Kim needs an excuse. “And I think sometimes it’s easy to get distracted”

“But your husband still wants you to take care of him,” Khloe says.

Khloe’s bad advice continues: “I’m sure with three kids you’re tired at the end of the day and you don’t make that a priority, but she really has to.”

In real life, of course, if your husband is acting like an entitled baby who wants you to mommy him, unless that’s some sort of kink that you share, it’s not great.

Rather than rearranging your life so that you can get him his special big boy bandages, the better choice might be to find a husband who is, like, an adult.

That said, we’re not convinced that Kim and Kanye are silently separated. That’s not really Kim’s style.

Kim will stand by her man — to a fault. She’s hardly the only one in the family to do so.

It’s difficult to imagine that she and Kanye are leading separate lives. At the very least, we can’t picture Kanye keeping it a secret.


Pete Davidson: Hell Yeah I Used to Jerk Off to Ariana Grande Before We Met!

When he appeared on Howard Stern, Pete Davidson finally addressed his penis size … but he also spoke about a lot more.

Pete admitted to having masturbated to the thought of his current fiancee, Ariana Grande, before they ever met. He also discussed his marijuana use.

This boy has no filter, folks.

Howard Stern, who seems to be so adept at getting people to talk to him that he should probably be working for U.S. intelligence, spoke to Pete Davidson.

Obviously, Pete Davidson famous on his own, but the fact that he’s engaged to one of the biggest talents on the planet definitely came up.

“Any time we’re intimate,” Pete shares. “I’m always apologizing and saying thank you.”

He gives an example of the way that he speaks to Ariana in bed: “‘You’re awesome for doing this, thank you so much.'”

That sounds very courteous — and courtesy is exactly what Ariana deserves.

Pete knows that he is the envy of the world when it comes to his romance with Ariana.

“I get it,” Pete says. “I was jerking off to her before I met her!”

That is … well, totally normal. It’s just weird to admit so bluntly, but as we said, Pete has no filter. It’s part of what makes him such a good comedian.

Some worry that Ariana will be upset by his oversharing. Please remember that Ariana started Pete Davidson’s dong rumors

She’s not a little kid — in fact, she’s a few months older than he is. She’s just short.

But when Pete admits that he’s the envy of the world for getting to bone Ariana Grande, he’s not really kidding.

“I got a death threat!” Pete tells Stern.

“Someone wanted to shoot me in the face… because [Ariana] is so hot,” Pete says. “You know how insane that is?”

To be clear, Pete is not maligning the mentally ill — he has been open and direct about his mental health.

“Am I that ugly that people want to shoot me in the face?” Pete jokes. “They’re like, ‘no, f–k this guy,’ like what did I do?”

Pete also opened up about how he addressed his substance abuse issues after going to rehab in 2016 — but he still uses marijuana.

Why? Because it was never an actual problem.

“It wasn’t the weed,” he explains.

He did excise marijuana from his system for a quarter of a year, but realized that unlike other substances, the weed made his life better, not worse.

“I was sober for three months at one point,” Pete shares. “And was like this f–king sucks.”

“I have Crohn’s disease,” Pete says. “So it helps more than you can imagine.”

Those of us lucky enough to only be able to imagine how unpleasant that must be for him should be grateful that we do not understand first-hand.

“There was a point where I couldn’t get out of bed,” Pete reveals. “I was 110 pounds… I also just love smoking weed.”

You know what? That’s not everyone’s thing, but that’s fair. And it is finally becoming decriminalized in more parts of the country.

With the exception of those three months, Pete says, “I’ve been smoking weed every day for eight years.”

One of the reasons that we were so overjoyed when Pete and Ariana first hooked up, aside from the fact that they’re both good people who deserve the world, was that Pete has his life together.

His borderline personality disorder is diagnosed, and he tackled his substance abuse issues directly and successfully.

(Smoking marijuana on a daily basis as self-medication sounds fine, so long as the person is functional — a lot of us know people who do the same who lead successful, healthy lives)

As for his oversharing, well, that is what Pete does. A lot of comedians tend to have less of a filter, which is what makes them so funny.

We somehow suspect that Ariana won’t mind his oversharing. She might object to his self-image issues, though.


Tyler Baltierra: Hell Yeah MTV Was Right to Fire Farrah Abraham!

Late last year, Farrah Abraham was fired from Teen Mom OG as a result of her refusal to stop performing in live online sex shows.

The decision met with a mixed response, as even some of Farrah's staunchest critics thought MTV's reasoning was questionable and had the effect of shaming both Abraham and other sex workers.

Tyler Baltierra is now speaking out on the network's decision — and Farrah probably won't care for what he has to say.

Get ready for another round in the ongoing feud between two of the Teen Mom franchise's most outspoken stars:

1. Keeping It Real

Tyler baltierra gets honest on instagram
Tyler is known for speaking his mind on social media. And when it comes to Farrah, he’s never pulled any punches.

2. At It Again

Farrah and Tyler have clashed before, perhaps most notably when she posted a lengthy Instagram rant in which she claimed that Baltierra is gay and his wife, Catelynn Lowell, is a drug addict.

3. The Last Laugh

Of course, the Baltierras have emerged victorious, as not only are they still employed, Farrah’s life has devolved into a public trainwreck in the months since she was fired.

4. The Arrest

Farrah’s latest downward spiral began when she was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel last month after allegedly assaulting a staff member.

5. The Feud

Farrah drita split
Things got worse from there, as Abraham found herself embroiled in a very public feud with Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo.

6. Spiking the Football

So perhaps it should come as no surprise that Tyler had little sympathy for Farrah when he was asked about her while filming an interview with Dr. Oz this week …

Chrissy Teigen: Yeah, I Steamed My Vagina; Take a Look!

We’ve all watched and laughed as Gwyneth Paltrow defends vaginal steaming despite medical science. We’ve laughed even harder when Farrah Abraham does it for attention.

But now, with a heavy heart, we must disclose that Chrissy Teigen has begun to dabble in vaginal steaming. It’s heartbreaking.

In fact, Chrissy even documented her experience. You can see that below.

Like most parents, Chrissy Teigen’s tweets are often about her family, particular daughter Luna’s ongoing milestones and baby Miles’ breastfeeding antics.

(And about politics. Everyone tweets about the news and politics every day for these past couple of years because every day brings new horrors)

But Chrissy decided to share something personal — very personal.

“Face mask / heat pad / vagina steam,” she writes on Twitter, teasing the image to which she linked.

Care to guess which of those things made people’s eyes bulge in surprise and horror? No need to guess — it was “vagina steam.”

“No, I don’t know if any of this works,” she admits. “But it can’t hurt right?”


Chrissy then answers her own question with: “*vagina dissolves*”

That’s quite the image.

“I said vagina,” Chrissy tweets as a follow up as she looks at her own words.

She explains that it’s one of thiose times when a word that you’ve written just doesn’t look right.

“It looks so weird I wanna change it to vajay,” she admits. “But I’m gonna try to be adult about this.”

In the mean time, one of those Twitter bots that automatically responds to tweets with ads based upon key words tried to sell her a steamer.

“Lol,” Chrissy replied.

Vaginal steaming is controversial to say the least.

The supposed benefits are said to include easing tension in the vagina, reducing bloating and period cramps. 

It is also supposed to “cleanse” the vagina and uterus.

But so much about the treatment is unproven  … including whether it is safe or unsafe.

Medical science is leery of the concept in general.

See, vaginas are just not adapted. And many fear that the sudden influx of foreign moisture could create a cozy environment for unwanted bacteria and yeast.

That does not sound ideal.

Of course, Chrissy Teigen is probably experiencing some postpartum discomfort and is clearly eager to try anything and everything to resolve it.

Just a little over a month ago, Chrissy and John welcomed their second baby, a precious little boy named Miles.

They have a lot of love for their child, just as they do for Luna.

But being a parent to a newborn is exhausting … especially if you’re breastfeeding.

Chrissy has been open about her experience on Twitter, revealing that Miles nurses every two hours.

She has also mentioned that he takes a while to nurse — sometimes taking two hours and then immediately being hungry again.

We’re glad that he’s getting the nutrition that he needs, including gut flora and a jumpstart for his immune system, but that must be so exhausting for poor Chrissy.

So, Chrissy decided to steam clean her vajayjay.

Is that a little out there and arguably questionable? Yes.

But it’s a far cry from shoving rocks into your vagina to get better at sex. In fact, steaming is one of Gwyneth’s less ridiculous yet still absurd proposed remedies.

And unlike some stars we could name (Gwyneth is just one), Chrissy doesn’t seem to be promoting the treatment.

She’s just being frank and honest with her followers on social media.

That’s part of her brand.


Coco Austin: Yeah, I Breastfeed My 29-Month-Old! What About It?

We’re all accustomed to referring to Coco Austin and Ice-T’s sweet daughter as baby Chanel Nicole. But she is actually a toddler, now.

When Coco shared a sweet pic of her daughter laying against her chest, fans asked if Coco is still breastfeeding.

Coco answered, and that is when the controversy began.

Though Coco has made controversial claims in the past, her caption of this sweet photo is totally innocuous.

“I follow some mother empowering pages here on Instagram.”

There are tons of empowering blogs on a number of subjects, including motherhood.

“And I love the inspiring pics they post showing the tenderness and love between a mother and child.”

They really do!

“With or without nursing moments.”

Not all mothers can nurse, but they can still bond with their children, and Coco is sure to include them.

“I love that I can be a part of that.”

She then credits her sweet young daughter with helping her to grow as a person.

“@babychanelnicole has made me a more sensitive person now that I’m older.”

Coco’s post elicited literally thousands of responses.

Some were questions for clarification.

Sweet toddler Chanel, who was born in November of 2015, is now two and a half years old.

Some of Coco’s followers wondered if Coco still nurses her.

Coco is always happy to chat with her followers, and she replied, writing:

“Yep, but it’s more for comfort now.”

Breastfeeding can become very controversial in the United States after a child tunrs two.

But Coco received praise and affirmation from many of her followers, who wrote:

“Breastfeeding is a beautifil bond between a mom and a child.”

That is true! Though, of course, not all mothers are able to breastfeed and that is okay, too.

“Good for you! [red heart emoji] My baby and I recently stopped breastfeeding but we made it to 21 months!”

Chanel is older than that, but many babies quit breastfeeding long before they reach 21 months.

“This pic is so beautiful..only a BF mommy would get it..i still excuslively BF my son..hes 16mths..he wont even entertain cows milk but tbh im happy for him to still breastfeed untill hes ready to give up. … I would never stop until HES ready..”

Though BF usually stands for boyfriend or best friend, in this case, it stands for breastfeeding.

Not all commenters were on the same page, however.

One commenter said that breastfeeding is fine, but only “when they’re still babies not full grown toddlers.”

Another suggested an alternative way of showing affection to Chanel.

“Breast Feeding an almost 3 year old is weird you can hug your Child to show love.”

Someone else accused Coco of being selfish.

“No this is now more for YOU than her ..totally inappropriate..let her grow up ..”

One of those critics got some clapback from a fellow fan that was too good to keep to ourselves.

“You a grown man and still sucking t–s lol…but you don’t complain tho.”

The subject of breastfeeding can be a delicate one. Globally, it’s not uncommon for children to breastfeed at least some of the time until they are as old as 5, if you can imagine.

If a baby nurses successfully for months but eventually stops — some babies “become too busy” exploring their environment and playing to have time to lay down for a meal — that is usually the time to quit.

Some babies, however, may never stop on their own. It’s generally advisable to stop before they go to a social environment such as preschool or especially kindergarten.

But not everyone agrees with that. it’s complicated, and everyone has an opinion on every subject under the sun.

Good for Coco for speaking up on a topic that she had to know woudl be controversial.


Teen Mom OG Recap: Oh, Yeah, Baby, Yeah!

Monday night on Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 8, Farrah got into a nasty argument with her mom … what else is new, right?

Meanwhile, Amber found out she was expecting, and Ryan and Mackenzie celebrated a joint bachelor and bachelorette party.

There’s no need to tease that someone is pregnant on Teen Mom: OG, because in this day and age, you already know who it is.

Still, there’s always more to the story that you don’t know, and for Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon, timing was everything.

On the couple’s Hawaiian vacation, she ended up getting sick right away, immediately and then continuously feeling nauseous.

You know what that means!

Despite the exciting pregnancy test reveal (see video above), it wasn’t all sunshine last night, thanks largely to Andrew’s past.

Amber’s ex, Gary Shirley, started reading things in the news about him, and discussed Amber’s battle with depression issues.

He ultimately relayed this to his wife, Kristina Anderson, saying that as always, it’s all about Leah, his daughter with Amber.

Kristina revealed that the couple told Leah that Amber hadn’t been coming around as much because she was too depressed.

That’s fair if true.

However, Leah later asked Kristina: “If she was too depressed to see me, she wasn’t too depressed to find a new man?”

Meanwhile, Catelynn Lowell decided to get her birth control device out but wanted to keep that a secret from Tyler Baltierra.

Right away, that’s a recipe for disaster.

By the time she turns 30, she hoped to be done having children, she told her mom, and now that she’s 26, the clock’s ticking.

Cate was told by her doctor she needs to drop 15-20 pounds to get healthy, however, plus quit smoking (Tyler already has).

In the world of Farrah Abraham, she decided to take her mother and her father on a family vacation, a very nice sentiment.

At least it was, except for the fact that she neglected to tell her mom that her dad and his girlfriend would also be on hand.

Naturally, the moment Debra showed up and ran into Farrah, Sophia, Michael and his girlfriend, Amy, was beyond awkward.

Nevertheless, they somehow persevered through that and were having a cordial time with one another. Shocking, we know.

Later, though, Debra brought up Farrah’s ex-lover Simon Saran in front of Sophia, and Farrah proceded to flip her actual s–t.

As soon as Sophia was out of earshot, Farrah called Debra “an evil bitch” and said she didn’t want to speak to her anymore.

At least Soph wasn’t there for that?

Last but not least, Mackenzie Standifier and Ryan Edwards jetted off to Las Vegas for their bachelor and bachelorette parties.

There, Standifer broke down talking about her bizarre parking lot wedding to Ryan last spring where only his parents came.

Those were dark times, indeed.

Mackenzie added that at one point, she didn’t even know if he’d be alive, so thinking about a future with him seemed bleak.

Ryan, for his part, confided that he’s not sure if he’s ready for another child … making reports of them trying for a baby feel troubling.

Standifer mentioned that she invited his ex, Maci Bookout, and her husband, Taylor McKinney, to the wedding. But did she?

The invite came to “Maci Bookout” and Bentley … as in her maiden name, and without Taylor’s name appearing anywhere.

Bookout planned to bring him anyway, so we’ll see when we watch Teen Mom OG online next week if that caused any drama.

Feels like a good bet.
