Catelynn Lowell Claps Back at Rehab-Shamers: You’re Ignorant!!

In the wake of being slammed for going back to rehab, Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell is clapping back at her haters.

She’s being mom-shamed, wife-shamed, and plain ol’ shamed for “abandoning” her family. And she’s clapping back.

Take a look at her strong words — and at the hate to which she was responding.

Following the episode in which she explained the reason she was returning to rehab, Catelynn Lowell took to Twitter to put the haters on blast.

“All you ignorant people are the reason why mental health still has this huge stigma around it!”

The stigma surrounding mental health is devastating, though things are getting better as more and more people use social media to share what was once a private struggle.

She shares some hashtags that encourage people to learn more about mental health.

#GetEducated #KeepTalkingMH”

She wishes that people wouldn’t condemn her for going to rehab when they clearly do not know what they’re talking about.

“You have NO clue unless you have been through it yourself.”

In many ways, Catelynn feels exhasperated.

“Some of you people disgust me.”

She continues to correct the people who think that she was abandoning her family by going to rehab.

“I wasn’t ‘running away’ from my problems I was FIXING them!”

Yep. Seeking medical help when you need it is the right thing to do.

“Working HARD & getting on the right medication.”

Sometimes, that requires inpatient treatment.

“I wouldn’t wish this crap on my worst enemy!”

Mental illness is a terrible burden. The only good thing about it is that more people are speaking openly about their struggles.

“But I guess I’ll have haters no matter what! Just glad I got myself better and if ppl r mad then be mad I guess #KeepTalkingMH”

Having haters — and ideally learning to accept them — goes with the territory of being a reality star, unfortunately.

Catelynn Lowell Rehab Tweet 2

Catelynn retweeted a few supportive tweets, including one that reads:

“I’ve done outpatient & inpatient treatment and sometimes outpatient just isn’t enough at that certain time! That’s nothing to be ashamed of. dont listen to the hate! I’ll never understand how you guys deal with so much bullshit from random people! You’re so strong!”

She also clapped back at a hater, who wrote:

“Us people? Smh”

Catelynn’s own tweet responded:

“Yes the ones that are uneducated on mental illness. That’s what ignorance is. People with uneducated opinions.”

She’s not wrong.

If you want to see what sorts of hate she’s fighting back again, take a look at this small sampling of social media vitriol that fills her mentions:

“Lots of wives and mothers have to do this while still raising a family. Not everyone has the luxury of dumping their family and hopping on a plane to a rehab center to ‘get their meds right’. They do that between raising a family and working a full time job.”


“If she got a job, joined a gym & ate the right food that be half the battle for her! She’s too much time to sit around eating smoking and thinking. Get a life and live it! Get healthy for one that’s a start.”


“You’re not the only parent struggling with mental health issues. I am a single parent with mental health issues BUT, I still have to provide for my family and be there when my children need me. You are putting Nova in the same position your parents put you in, think about that.”


“Wasn’t she instructed to stay away from social media? She’s a non-compliant patient which makes one wonder in what other areas of her life is she not following the process? Does she even *want* to get better?”


“You complain too much!!! Get over it. People have been through worst s–t then you and youre dragging s–t out thats 10+ yrs old. Woman up. Can’t even cook for your man”

These haters may be eager to slam Catelynn for making what was clearly a responsible choice for herself and for her loved ones.

But Tyler Baltierra is standing by his wife.

In response to her on-camera confession that she needed to return to rehab in order to truly recover, he said:

“I’m not ever leaving, I’m not going anywhere. Don’t think like that.”

He reiterated that message on social media, writing:

“I love you more Babe! True love is boundless, limitless, & unconditional!”


Jenelle Evans to MTV: You’re NOTHING Without Me!

Say what you will about Jenelle Evans, the woman knows how to get what she wants.

She might alienate her family and fans and jeopardize her livelihood in the process of getting what she wants, but in the end, it’s a safe bet that the Carolina Hurricane will come out on top.

In the wake of news that her husband, David Eason, had been fired by Teen Mom producers, many hoped that Jenelle would be next on the chopping block.

And indeed, there were times when it seemed as though Evans was practically daring her bosses to cut her loose.

Eason was fired after hurling homophobic slurs at fans who suggested he may want to delete a photo of Jenelle shooting a gun that was posted just hours after the Parkland, Florida school shooting that claimed 17 lives.

So what does Jenelle do?

Why, she joins the NRA in order to piss off her haters, of course!

Not exactly damage control behavior, and many thought Jenelle’s boasting about joining the controversial lobbyist group would lead her employers to give her the ax.

Last week’s news that Jenelle was refusing to film scenes for the upcoming season of Teen Mom 2 led to rumors that she would finally be finding herself on the unemployment line.

However, now it seems that her gambit may have paid off.

“A crew was down there to film her this week, and she kept ditching,” a behind-the-scenes source tells The Ashley’s Reality Roundup.

“She would set it up and then not come to the shoot. The crew flew home today without having filmed any footage with Jenelle.”

And what exactly is Jenelle demanding?

Well, for starters, she wants MTV to continue bankrolling Eason’s travels and other expenses, despite the minor detail that he’s no longer appearing on the show.

“Jenelle knows that MTV will not film David anymore and there’s no chance of them hiring him back but she still wants them to cover the expenses for him– pay for him to go on trips and stuff, even though he won’t be filmed,” a second source tells The Ashley.

“For instance, she wants them to agree to fly David to the reunions and events and cover his expenses, even though he won’t be attending the reunions or going on-camera.”

The insider adds that Jenelle is “using her newly-hired lawyer” to negotiate on her behalf and has caused major production delays due to her refusal to film.

Sounds like the sort of thing that would serve as the last straw for producers, but amazingly, it looks like Evans has the upper hand.

“Jenelle’s stalling is holding up the production of the season,” the source says. 

“They can’t get it ready and edited and everything until they get footage of Jenelle for the last few episodes. A bunch of the crew that went out [to North Carolina] to film is over her wasting their time.”

Insiders say the situation came to a head on Friday evening when Jenelle finally agreed to film after a tense round of negotiations.

“I filmed all day yesterday. Now you know. Happy?” Evans tweeted on Saturday morning.

Production sources say the move came after a camera crew returned to her house and then sat idle for most of Friday, as she stuck to her guns until nighttime.

Like we said, the girl is nothing if not stubborn – and it seems to be working for her.

Gary Shirley to Amber Portwood: Sorry for Admitting You’re a Bad Mother!

Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley never really had the greatest relationship, but they do share a daughter, Leah, so they pretty much have to get along with each other for the rest of their lives.

Think about that for a second, being forced to deal with Amber for all the rest of your days …

It's no wonder Gary snapped, right?

In last night's episode of Teen Mom OG, he had some pretty harsh things to say about her — harsh, but true.

Amber didn't take it well, so no surprise there, but what was surprising was that Gary took the time to apologize to her on Twitter for everything he said during the episode.

Because again, what he said was true.

Here, let's just review everything, and you can see if you think Gary needed to apologize, OK?

1. A Bad Match

Amber portwood and gary shirley in therapy
OK, so Amber and Gary were always terrible together, from the very first moment we ever saw either of them on Amber’s 16 and Pregnant episode. They just don’t get along well. Even in their happiest moments, there was always some issue — remember when he tried to propose and she got mad because he didn’t use the exact words she wanted to hear?

2. SMH

These two broke up, got back together, got engaged, then broke up again more times than we can even count, and it took Amber going to prison to really end things for good between them.

3. Hey, Kristina!

Kristina anderson and gary shirley
While Amber was incarcerated, Gary met Kristina, who he went on to marry and have another child with. Kristina became the mother figure that little Leah never really had. Everyone loves Kristina.

4. Shame, Shame

Gary did lead Amber on a bit during this time though — he didn’t make it clear to her when he was in prison that their relationship was over, and he strung her along when she got out. But through it all, he was always a good father to Leah, and that’s what we’re talking about here.

5. Choices

Meanwhile, Amber chose to stay in prison, away from her young daughter, instead of going to rehab, and when she was back home, she chose to get involved with creepy Matt Baier instead of rebuilding her relationship with her kid.

6. Tsk Tsk

She mentioned trying to get custody of Leah back a few times, but then never really talked about it again. And in the time that she’s been out of prison, she hasn’t seemed to make seeing her at all that much of a priority.

Kylie Jenner to Critics: You’re Just Jealous of My Body!

Kylie Jenner does not care what you think.

The 20-year old new mother shocked many fans on Instagram two days ago when she snapped a selfie.

This on its own, of course, is the opposite of shocking.

It’s only shocking when Jenner goes an hour or two without snapping a selfie.

However, this self-portrait featured Kylie in a waist trainer, a ridiculously stupid and completely useless piece of apparel that she and her sisters have pushed on the public for years.

The siblings get paid to pretend as if this item helps them lose weight, setting a horrible example for followers around the world and proving they only care about money.

We’ve slammed, bashed and mocked the Kardashians for waist training for years.

But Kylie has now taken this bad role modeling to a new low, considering she gave birth six weeks ago and is trying to tell folks that using a frickin waist trainer will help them shed pregnancy weight.

Just consider her caption to the following image…

my girl @premadonna87 hooked me up with the @waistgangsociety snap back package. #ad waistgang has the BEST quality snap back products.

make sure you get your package & follow @waistgangsociety to join & keep up the journey together. tag us in photos, and head over to NOW!

Use code (Kylie) for an exclusive discount & I can keep up with your progress. #waistgangsociety #waistgang #fitness #whatwaist

A Texas-based OGBYN told Us Weekly afterward that this garment “puts harmful compression to the abdomen. It has a temporary result that is no different than anything too tight around skin.”

In other words: it doesn’t work. D’uh!

Jenner may be proud of her post-baby body right now, but she achieved nothing of substance with this asinine waist trainer.

We’re not the only ones to state this opinion, but Radar Online claims Jenner only has one message for her critics.

Kylie has been getting so much hate from everyone over the fact that she is ashamed about how fat she got while pregnant,” an insider tells this gossip website, adding:

“Honestly, she couldn’t really care less what people think.

“She believes that everyone is just jealous that she is able to get so skinny so fast and they are not!”

Yup. That’s totally it.

That’s always the case when a celebrity is criticized; haters must be jealous, right?

What other explanation could one ever have for thinking badly of a star and/or her actions?!?

Jenner, of course, disappeared from the spotlight during her pregnancy.

Numerous reports suggested that she was embarrassed about the pounds she packed on, assuming she would receive flak for it because she’s made a living by sharing so many sultry selfies.

Kylie basically based her self-worth on her appearance, which is very unfortunate.

She then gave birth on February 1 and reportedly became immediately obsessed with regaining her bikini body.

“Kylie really believes that she needs to have a hot body for her job and it’s really sad how much emphasis she is putting on this,” Radar concludes.

We agree. It’s totally sad.

But if she wants to actually accomplish this goal, we have one a piece of advice for her:

Take off the dang waist trainer!


Donald Trump to Rex Tillerson: You’re Fired!

If you’re having trouble keeping track of all the White House departures in recent weeks, fear not – we’re sure Donald Trump has no idea what the hell is going on, either.

The latest to earn a tombstone in the growing pet cemetery at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is none other than former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who was 86’ed by the president in a meeting that surely concluded Trump’s famous catchphrase.

We’re referring, of course, to “Oh God, Russia really has me the balls. We’re all screwed, like really so much more bigly screwed than anyone realizes.”

Ha! Classic Donnie!

News of the Tillerson’s termination was first reported by The Washington Post and confirmed by Trump on Twitter this morning:

“Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job!” Trump tweeted with his usual bravado.

He added that this is totally a win for diversity, too, you guys:

“Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!”

With no diplomatic experience and a career spent entirely in the private sector, Tillerson was a controversial pick when he was selected by Trump back in December of 2016.

Of course, this is the Trump administration we’re talking about, so the choice was upstaged by a larger controversy before lunch that same day.

Throughout his time as the nation’s top diplomat, Tillerson repeatedly locked horns with Trump, at one point speaking for most of the country when he derided the president as a “f–king moron” during a meeting with top officials.

After the meeting, Tillerson held an awkward press conference in which he praised the president’s intellect.

Notably, he never denied calling Trump a moron.

Adding to the hilarity of the situation, Trump later suggested that he and Tillerson “should compare IQ tests.”

“And I can tell you who is going to win,” the President of the United States quipped.

Throughout his tenure, Tillerson clashed with Trump on the question of how best to handle North Korean hostility.

It’s not yet known if Tillerson’s departure is in any way tied to Trump’s recent decision to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

Rexy, we hardly knew ye.


Kailyn Lowry Bashes Chris Lopez: You’re Not a Real Parent!

Kailyn Lowry is obviously done putting up with Chris Lopez’s BS.

Lowry and Lopez welcomed a son together back last year, and at first, it looked as thouch Chris would step up and fulfill his fatherly duties.

While he was nowhere to be seen throught her pregnancy, Lopez made a surprise appearance in the delivery room and even drove Kailyn and baby Lux home once they left the hospital.

Despite frequent rumors that Lopez wanted nothing to do with his son, Kail remained hopeful that he would experience a change of heart once the baby arrived.

And she was right … for a while.

Unfortunately, it seems that Chris’ flood of fatherly feelings was short-lived.

According to Kailyn, Lopez is a deadbeat dad these days and has little to do with the life of his infant son.

But as you can see, that doesn’t stop him from posturing on Instagram.

Lopez posted the above photo of himself with Lux earlier this week.

So, it seems he does spend some time with the boy – but according to Kail, it’s not nearly enought.

“Don’t be an Instagram parent,” Lowry tweeted in response to Lopez’s pic.

Not surprisingly, Chris took issue with her comment, and he immediately fired back:

“Buuuut a person who literally made a living off of putting their kids on tv and social media but hey who am I to talk,” he replied.

“Honestly not worth my time lol,” he continued, later adding:

“I might have to violate someone today.”

Needless to say, Lopez-Lowry relations aren’t exactly going smoothly these days.

And sadly, poor Lux is caught in the middle.

Obviously, at this point, Kail has proven herself a committed parent, so we’re inclined to side with her in a dispute like this one.

Still, hammering her baby’s father for the benefit of her millions of social media followers isn’t a great look.

Worse, all of this is now a matter of public record.

Even if Kail deletes the tweet, she’s famous to the point that – once they’re old enough – her kids will likely have no trouble finding an archive of everything she said.

And that’ll likely lead to lots of awkward conversations about their fathers.

Duggar Fans Slam Joy-Anna: You’re Too Young to Be a Mom!

Earlier this week, Joy-Anna Duggar welcomed her first child.

As is always the case with this sort of thing, millions of loyal Duggar fans responded to the news with such giddy glee that one might have thought it was their family that had recently expanded.

But in several important ways the public reaction to Joy’s birth announcement was different from what we saw when her older sisters became moms.

For starters, Joy’s pregnancy was controversial from the start, due to rumors that she got pregnant before her wedding to Austin Forsyth.

The Duggars are staunchly opposed to premarital sex, and the revelation that Joy got pregnant out of wedlock would be disastrous to the wholesome public image they’ve worked so hard to cultivate.

Many suspected that Joy was misleading the public, and they expected to give birth well ahead of schedule.

When she delivered little Gideon Martyn Forsyth approximately 39 weeks after getting married, however, those theories were swiftly torpedoed.

But that doesn’t mean the haters were willing to admit defeat and offer reluctant congratulations to Joy and Austin.

Instead, they switched gears to a different line of criticism.

These days, the Duggar-obsessed corners of social are filled with laments for Joy’s lost youth.

Yes, some feel that at 20 years of age, Joy is far too young to be a mother.

Others find it ludicrous that Joy and Austin were never permitted to spend time alone together until their honeymoon.

Do they have a point? Of course! 

The latter argument is particularly valid, and the Duggars’ approach to courtship often sounds like something out of dark dystopian fiction.

But what’s done is done, and maybe these days, Joy-Anna needs support more than anything else.

“Too bad y’all couldn’t have gotten to really know each other before you brought a baby into the world. You said yourself you were never alone until your wedding night,” wrote one fan on the Forsyths’ shared Instagram page.

“That’s just not a good thing. Marriage and parenting is hard work but your marriages is so important. I think it’s just irresponsible of you.”

Poor joy. Hasn’t even lived her life yet,” another commenter remarked.

“God love her, she looks so so young and absolutely exhausted,” wrote a third follower.

It’s certainly true that Joy looks exhausted these days, but it’s important to add – she also looks quite happy.
