Jenelle Evans: I SWEAR I’m Not Racist (Just Don’t Ask Kieffer)!!!
by Emily Trainham on June 4, 2020 at 9:26 pm
For the past several days, many celebrities have been called out for the things they’ve said or haven’t said about George Floyd’s murder and the big conversation about race that’s followed it. Jenelle Evans is one of those people. She refrained from making a statement for a while, and when she did, it was seriously lacking. But the things that have happened since she made that statement … you can’t even make this stuff up, friends. 1. Buckle Up There’s a lot to this story, and it’s all completely awful, so … just get a snack or a puppy or something, because this is going to be rough. 2. Uh Oh As you may have seen, people have been urging celebrities (really anyone with any sort of following) to speak out about George Floyd’s murder, the massive issue with racism in America, the corruption in police officers — really just any of that. 3. Ugh And on Monday, Jenelle hopped on Facebook and wrote “Well while all of you are rioting and destroying your precious cities, I’ll be far far away on my boat away from all of you.” 4. Hold Tight Not a great look, right? But trust us, it gets way worse. 5. A Defense A while after her Facebook statement (she had to take some time to get into a fight with David), she got on Instagram and in a video, she said “I would like for all the racist comments to stop being sent to my inbox, and I appreciate it if you guys stop calling me a racist just because I haven’t spoke out yet.” 6. Well … “Just because I haven’t spoke out yet, you do not know my opinion,” she told her followers. View Slideshow
Mackenzie McKee: Josh Still SUCKS … But He Only Kind of Cheated on Me and I Don’t Hate Him Anymore!
by Tyler Johnson on June 4, 2020 at 9:22 pm
Last month, Teen Mom OG fans were stunned by the news that Mackenzie McKee decided to divorce her husband Josh after catching him in what she believed to be an affair with her cousin. Well, mostly stunned. It wasn’t the split itself that was shocking – Josh had cheated on Mackenzie before, and they’d separated on at least one previous occasion – but the timing of the breakup that caught fans off guard. It was just six months ago that Mackenzie’s mother Angie Douthit passed away following a long battle with cancer. Throughout her mother’s fight for her life, Mackenzie praised Josh for the love and support he provided Angie. Now it turns out that the father of her three kids was sneaking off to hook up with some else that entire time? And that person was one of her own family members? Well, not quite. She made it clear that it was. Aboiut as clear as it could possibly be. But then walked it back. Mostly. Mackenzie now believes that Josh did not cheat on her, but she’s decided to go ahead with the divorce anyway. Now, she’s alleging that he carried on an “emotional affair” with her cousin. Whatever that means. What exactly went on there, we will likely never know. Mackenzie is likely to keep changing her story too, it appears. But it sounds like Josh Mckee’s behavior wasn’t quite as reprehensible as Mackenzie initially made it out to be. And to be fair, she’s realized that, and she’s even started accepting some of the blame for the failure of her marriage. Mackenzie posted the photo above on her Instagram page this week, part of an album commemorating a day with the kids on Josh McKee’s boat. “A day in papas boat out on the water. Today I am fried. #kidscomefirst #healthycoparenting,” she captioned the album. That caption is interesting in its own right. Amicable co-parenting is a great thing – and an admirable goal – if in fact they are going through with the divorce. And as Starcasm reports, Mackenzie really opened up when replying to followers who commented on the pics: “I just had to learn that I have made mistakes, he has made mistakes. Together we destroyed a marriage,” she wrote in response to a fan whose husband recently left her for another woman. “And now we have to learn to raise these kids together and get along,” she added. “It’s hard sister I know. With the help of God everything has gone very smoothly.” From there, she shared some surprising praise for her ex. “Thankfully Josh has been the easiest person to go through something like this with. But it also helps that neither of us are wanting to move on and be in relationships right now,” McKee wrote. “We just want to figure ourselves out.” “And when that day comes, I just pray he finds someone who will respect me and my kids. It’s all in God’s hands.” Wow. Sounds like Mackenzie has adopted a very healthy attitude toward her ex. Of course, when other followers expressed doubt for her claims of amicable co-parenting, she quickly reminded us that she’s still every bit the Oklahoma spitfire fans have come to know and love: “If you can’t support me unfollow me,” she wrote. “I can remove him from being my husband but have no reason to remove him from his children. It’s people like you that make me not want to share my life anymore.” Mackenzie concluded with a zen-like message about accepting both one’s fate and one’s culpability in said fate: “I think it’s safe to say we’ve been equally wrong to one another.” “He shouldn’t have put up with me and I shouldn’t have him,” she wrote. “I promise I’m a big girl and am making the right decisions for our babies.” “God bless.” It might not make for the most compelling television, but wouldn’t it be refreshing to see all the Teen Moms adopt such mature attitudes toward their exes?

Jax Taylor Accused of Bullying Female Castmates, Defending Homophobic Pastor, Being Human Garbage
by Tyler Johnson on June 4, 2020 at 8:13 pm
On Tuesday night’s Vanderpump Rules reunion, a whole bunch of dirty laundry was aired publicly. Some dating back long before its cast members were on Bravo. Newcomers Max Boyen and Brett Caprioni apologized for making racist remarks in their youth that were brought to light when they were first cast on the show. Many viewers may have felt that the apologies were insufficient, and both men should be fired, but at least Max and Brett seemed genuinely remorseful. While their comments were not something most of us (hopefully) can relate to, you have to give them some credit for owning up to their youthful idiocy. Sadly, the same cannot be said for perennial moron Jax Taylor. Despite being roughly a decade older than Max and Brett, the 40-year-old Jax continues to make problematic statements. Moreover, his apologies – which are few and far between – always come off as forced and insincere. Worst of all, they’re usually followed by repetitions of the behavior for which he’s been chastised. In the past, the show’s producers tried to sell us on the “Jax is a changed man” narrative, and the storyline might have made for compelling television — if Jax had actually changed at all. But of course, he hasn’t. On the show and on social media, Jax has continued to bully and berate those whom he regards as his inferiors (read: everyone). The problem has gotten so bad that calls for Jax to be fired from Vanderpump Rules have become commonplace among fans. Unfortunately, those demands have fallen on deaf ears, despite repeated instances of blatant homophobia on Taylor’s part. The most obvious example – though far from the only one – involved the pastor Taylor and Brittany Cartwright selected to officiate their wedding. The most cursory search of the guy’s name would have been enough to reveal a long history of bigotry, but Jax and Brittany continue to play dumb and undermine their obligatory apologies with excuses. “I promise you guys, I did not see anything more than the one tweet,” Cartwright said during the reunion show. “He promised me that he [wasn’t homophobic] so I believed him.” That statement is demonstrably false, but this is the same Brittany who claimed she’d never seen an episode of Vanderpump and met Taylor by chance. (It was later revealed that she was a longtime fan of the show, who sought him out during a trip to L.A.) Obviously, that’s a completely different level of dishonesty, but the point, is we shouldn’t be surprised. She casually and convincingly lies like most people breathe, and is also married to Jax Taylor, implying at least a somewhat relaxed attitude toward moral responsibility. Anyway, producers will keep Jax around because he’s good for ratings, but thankfully, the other cast members seem to be fully fed up with his sh-t. Jax’s homophobia has surfaced several times in the past year, including the multiple incidents in which he mocked Ariana Madix for coming out as bisexual. She clapped back at Taylor during Tuesday’s show, and hard. If you listened hard enough you could probably hear applause from people all over the country who had been bullied for their sexuality by fools like Jax. “I don’t think it’s very hard to understand what it is to be bisexual; I’ve never flip-flopped on that,” Ariana said in clarification of concept so simple even Jax should be able to understand it. “Anybody who knows me has known that for a very, very long time,” she said. “It’s also like, really fun to just know that I bother him so much.” As usual, Tom Sandoval and Ariana were willing to speak truth to idiocy, while the rest of the cast kept their mouths shut when confronted with Jax’s bigotry. (Again, the guy is good for ratings, and thus, he gets away with a lot.) Thankfully, one newcomer who probably flew under most viewers’ radar this season made herself known in memorable fashion during the reunion. And boy did she call Jax out for the human garbage he can be. “I don’t even know this like, 50 year-old man,” Charli Burnett said when asked about being bullied on Twitter by Taylor. “He’s retired and done and wrapped,” she added. Naturally, Jax responded in the worst possible fashion by throwing one of his signature man-trums. “Know your role, sweetie,” Jax screamed into his Zoom cam. “Know your role! Know your role! You should be lucky that you’re here! You should be lucky that you’re here!“ He later admonished Charli for being “the most disrespectful person.” “I am who I am and I don’t give a f–k if you like me,” Burnett replied. “End of story.” Her views on pasta might remain unpopular, but something tells us Charli earned quite a few new fans that night.

90 Day Fiance Star Brittany Stirs Rumors: Is Yazan Dating a Sugar Baby?
by Simon Delott on June 4, 2020 at 7:05 pm
In April, the 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Season 2 trailer had everyone hyped for both new stars and returning couples. But as the season begins, fans can’t help but wonder about Brittany. Is she a sugar baby? 26-year-old Brittany is an American. She’s a gorgeous, fun model who enjoys showing off her body under the Florida sun. Yazan is 24 years old and lives in Jordan. It is expected that his conservative culture and elements of his Muslim faith, along with his family’s wishes, may be an obstacle for this couple. There’s more that can be said about the aspiring rapper and her mechanical engineer boo. But what has viewers curious is Britanny’s own account of her dating history. Yazan may be younger than she is, but according to Brittany, this is a rare situation for her. Many of her previous boyfriends, she reveals, have been older — much, much older. Brittany informed the camera that she has dated men who are 40 and above. That in itself is not so unusual. Women are often socialized to mature faster than men, and this along with other cultural forces encourages them to seek older partners. But Brittany has taken this age gap to new extremes. According to her, dating men 15 years or more above her own age is small potatoes. She has dated a man as old as 85 years old. Now, we’re not exactly mathematicians, but that seems to mean that she has dated a man who was three times her own age. There’s seeking older partners … and then there’s being a sugar baby. There are two definitions of sugar baby (and sugar daddy) that we need to address. One is a fairly informal term for a young person (usually a woman) who has a much older boyfriend, sought after because he is rich. Such a man would be her sugar daddy. If they were to marry, she would become his “trophy wife,” essentially. Until then, she’s arm candy. The other definition is a little more formal and, well, professional. Professionally speaking, a sugar baby is a type of sex worker who has a more formal arrangement. She gets spoiled by her sugar daddy, either in terms of cash or jewelry or rent or other gifts — often, all of the above. In exchange, the two of them have a sexual relationship, though they may also have a dating-like rapport. The question is … is Brittany either of these? Because some 90 Day Fiance fans are saying yes to both. Brittany did make a joke about how some of the men whom she has dated were apparently turned on by her braces. (Fun fact: braces are associated with adolescent minors, and if a man sincerely tells you that they’re turning you on, he’s a super mega creep) But beyond that, we have seen no evidence — concrete or otherwise — that Brittany has engaged in sex work or that she only dates rich men. Time may provide us all with more information, however. In the mean time, she and Yazan are one of the couples to watch this season. View Slideshow: 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Teases Culture Shock!

Jeff Lowe: Screw Carole Baskin! I’m Gonna Trash Joe Exotic’s Zoo Before She Takes It Over!
by Tyler Johnson on June 4, 2020 at 6:52 pm
You’d think that with Joe Exotic in prison and the world having finally moved on from attempting to solve the mystery of who killed Carole Baskin’s husband, the drama of Tiger King would finally be at an end. But if you’ve ever met anyone like the man-children who made the Netflix docu-series such a hit, you know they spend their entire lives wrapped up in petty squabbles and courting legal troubles until they eventually drive their ATVs off a ravine, and the coroner finds a couple gallons of Busch Light sloshing around in their guts. Anyway, Tiger King was back in the news this week, thanks to the revelation that after a seemingly never-ending court battle, Baskin will soon be taking over Exotic’s zoo as a result of a trademark judgement. Unfortunately, like the cat that got ahold of Exotic’s cologne-drenched boot, Carole might soon find that she’s bitten off more than she can chew. For the past several years, the GW Zoo in Wynewood, Oklahoma has been in control of Exotic’s partner-turned-nemesis Jeff Lowe. Not surprisingly, the elderly ex-con polygamist who dresses like he’s auditioning for a role in a Limp Bizkit biopic didn’t turn out to be the most responsible steward of the property. In fact, Lowe recently told Entertainment Tonight that Baskin will be taking the zoo over in a state of “complete hell.” “I mean, because I’m not taking care of it as we leave,” he said. “The bamboo is about taking this place over.” Lowe poured millions into the property but now, in full petulant teen mode, he says he totally never liked it in the first, and he’s, like, so glad to be leaving. “It’s always been our intention to leave this place,” he told ET. “ “We don’t particularly like it here because of its geographical location,” Lowe added. “It’s not a great place for a business, it was poorly constructed, so we’re happy to let her have it….I wish her all the luck in the world, and she can have these 16 acres of haunted memories.” Bolstering his own reputation as a petty little fella, Lowe went on to claim that Baskin’s win in court was a pyrrhic victory, which she pursued out of a blind desire for revenge on Exotic. “Considering [Carole] spent approximately $2.5M chasing her $1M judgment, we congratulate her on her new acquisition of 16 acres in rural Oklahoma,” he said. “The possibility of human remains being buried on this land should make her feel right at home.” Okay, that last part was actually a pretty good jab. Still, we feel compelled to point out to Jeff that he shouldn’t push Carole too far. She probably didn’t feed her husband to tigers, but that doesn’t mean she’s not fully aware of the best ways to dispose of human remains via big cat.
Joy-Anna Duggar Ignores Blackout Tuesday, Gets Lambasted on Social Media
by Hilton Hater on June 4, 2020 at 6:12 pm
Because she’s pregnant with her second child, Joy-Anna Duggar has mostly been receiving an outpouring of support these days. That was before Tuesday, June 2, however. As many Internet users likely know well, that date marked Blackout Tuesday across the World Wide Web, as social media participants were encouraged to leave a giant black box as their only post for the occasion. They were also encouraged to push traffic toward websites, authors and organizations that support the Black Lives Matter movement and/or racial equality. Why? Because George Floyd was killed by a police officer in Minnesota late last month and understandable outrage over this incident has led to protests in all 50 states. And, hopefully one day soon, real police reform and a reckoning across the nation. What does this have to do with Joy-Anna Duggar? Nothing, sadly. And that’s the point many critics are now making. Despite having around one million followers, and despite this being a chance for Duggar to send a very important messages to all of them… Joy-Anna did not take part in Blackout Tuesday. Instead, she posted a couple of pictures of her family hanging out in the nature of the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas. Combine Duggar’s ignoring of the social media “holiday” with her promoting of her own family and, well, you get a great deal of backlash against the reality star. “All of your combined followers and support for your family, yet not one mention of support from ANY Duggar on the state of this nation and it’s fellow people of color,” wrote one individual, adding: “Shame. But we’re all God’s children, right?” Another person had the same problem with the reality star’s photo array, writing: “Is anyone from your family going to comment on current issues? “Non Christians are watching. Christians are watching. Jesus would not be silent on this. Please use your platform for good.” To be a little fair, Joy-Anna’s brother-in-law actually did have a lot to say on this sensitive topic. In a video he posted on Monday, Jeremy Vuolo touched on racism and the challenges facing our country. “It’s very important to hear the thoughts of others,” he said, adding: “We need to weep not merely on their account but we need to weep at the brokenness of this world, at the injustice of this world, at the hatred that exists, at the division and the strife and the violence. “We need to weep at the brokenness of humanity.” It’s also worth noting that, instead of sharing photos of her son’s 7th birthday on Tuesday, Josh Duggar’s wife, Anna, posted a tribute in honor of Blackout Tuesday. “My mind keeps thinking of George Floyd’s family. I cannot imagine what his family is going through right now,” she wrote. “Our family is praying for God’s peace to surround them — and all who are hurting — may God bring healing and peace to our nation!” Amen! Would that be so hard, Joy-Anna? View Slideshow: The Duggars: Who’s Courting? Pregnant? Next In Line? [UPDATED WITH EVEN MORE BLESSINGS!]
Jenelle Evans: Melting Down Amid Racism Allegations, Marital Troubles?
by Tyler Johnson on June 4, 2020 at 5:37 pm
Back in February, Jenelle Evans got back together with David Eason, despite the fact that he’d spent years frightening her children for sport, and he capped off his reign ot terror by murdering her freakin’ dog. Fans anticipated disaster because — well, that’s just the sort of prediction people make when you welcome a dog-murdering sociopath back into your life. Naturally, there was a brief honeymoon period during which Jenelle bragged that she was happier than ever. But, of course, that was short-lived, and these two are back to launching vicious attacks at one another on social media. You’d think that by now, they would’ve at least figured out how to keep their fights out of the public eye, but the Easons aren’t big on learning from their mistakes. Anyway, this time there’s an added dimension of messiness, as Jenelle and David are both being accused of blatant racism. Such allegations have been following these two for as long as they’ve been a couple, but these days, their bigotry is made all the more apparent by the international uproar over the police murder of George Floyd. It all started when David Eason launched a racist tirade against Michelle Obama last month. Jenelle initially defended him, but then backed away — but not because she realized she’s married to a bigot, or even because it finally dawned on her that defending his neo-Nazi views might be bad for her career. No, Jenelle stopped defending David because he was mean to one of her friends and she got pissed about how broke he is. David accused Jenelle of hanging out with junkie prostitutes (her longtime bestie Tori Rhyne), and she shot back by accusing him of being an unemployed loser — which is fair, to be honest. Lately, fans have been picking up on signs that Jenelle and David have once again decided to go their separate ways. For one, they’ve unfollowed each other on all social media platforms, which is always a prelude to a breakup for these two. On top of that, Jenelle has been posting more bikini pics than usual, which some fans are taking as a sign that she’s back on the market. But hey, this situation is just one silver-lining after another for Jenelle. Obviously, she might be rid of David Eason again, which is always a good thing. On top of that, this would be a very good time for her to distance herself from openly racist husband. Look, we assume Jenelle is a bigot herself, because she’s an angry, insecure person, and bigotry goes hand-in-hand with anger and insecurity. But she doesn’t appear to be as virulent in her racism as David, which means that she might stop posting BS like this, which is the last thing she wrote on Facebook before their latest spat. Unfortunately for Jenelle, she still deserves to be canceled forever, and even her most ardent defenders are beginning to realize this. Evans has been repeatedly called out for her refusal to comment on the George Floyd situation and the ensuing protests. And instead of, ya know, actually speaking out on the issue, she’s been angrily clapping back at critics, including Ashley Siren of Young and Pregnant fame. Siren posted this screenshot of a conversation with Jenelle in which Evans played the old “my husband totally knows a black person!” card. So maybe they are still together? Anyway, Evans also posted an Instagram Story in which she lashed out media outlets for reporting on her apparent ambivalence toward the Floyd situation. “Instead of taking fake Twitter accounts, comments and writing bad things about me to make it look like I don’t care about this issue, maybe you should fact-check yourself, and, you guys, The Ashley’s Reality Roundup is not a credible source,” Evans stated. Well, if there’s any authority on credibility, it’s the woman who seems literally incapable of opening her mouth without lying. This is especially true when said liar is in the midst of a full-on meltdown. View Slideshow: David Eason: Jenelle Evans Would Rather Hang With Junkie Prostitutes Than Spend Time With Her Own Family!
Abby Lee Miller Accused of Vicious Racism by Dance Moms Stars
by Simon Delott on June 4, 2020 at 5:25 pm
Last month, Abby Lee Miller announced that she is done with Dance Moms, for good. That may be for the best. As more and more people call out racism in our society, multiple alums from the show are pointing the finger at Abby for vicious, hateful behavior. Adriana Smith, daughter Kamryn Smith, took to Instagram to share a difficult but important message. “I recently posted on my FB that racism is not something we can disagree on and still be friends,” she begins. “Which in turn is why we are not friends,” Adriana explains. She is referring specifically to Abby Lee Miller, whom she accuses of saying vicious things to both her and her young daughter. “A statement from her that sticks in my mind to this day” “during my time on DMS8” “is ‘I know you grew up in the HOOD with only a box of 8 crayons, but I grew up in the country club with a box of 64—don’t be stupid” “This my friends is not something or a statement that can be googled.” “Ask yourself what does that mean?” “This to me shows that you think you are better than me and in higher rank and all together superior to ME!” “Do you remember you told me, ‘Do you want me to tell you why you are really here?'” “LOL as if I didn’t know…again showing your superiority. Let me remind you what you said in case you forgot.” ‘You told me to ‘LOOK in the MIRROR! That’s the only reason you are here!'” “Kam told me she heard ‘they need a sprinkle of color!'” “As tears streamed down my face, I look over at my 7 year old and back at the camera,” Adriana narrates. “And,” she describes, “say, this is my EVERYDAY life as a black woman. This is nothing new to me.” “But what I’m not going to have happen is have this racist person have any part of my daughter’s life as of this moment,” she affirms. “At that moment, I knew that it was more important for me to show my daughter that she had to stand up for what’s right,” Adriana states. “And,” she continues, “not care about anything else.” “But in that interview, my little 7 year old cried like a GROWN black woman,” Adriana recalls. “And,” she describes, Kamryn “stood up and said, ‘Mom I understand it’s not right here and I want to go home too….'” That is absolutely heartbreaking, and Adriana is not the only one who remembers that moment with pain and clarity. Former Dance Moms producers Kori Kingg also spoke on this, responding to Adriana’s recollection on Facebook. “Some would say I should be quiet about this. But THIS THIS!?!” her post begins. Kori writes: “THIS broke me as I was working on show and pregnant with my own black daughter.” “In hind sight,” she admits, “I too should have left.” “I should have stood with my sister, Adriana Janae Smith,” Kori writes, “and supported gorgeous baby Kam and left too.” “Seeing a 7 year old little black girl be put in a box in a corner and treated so violently because of the color of her skin was heartbreaking,” she says. Kori remarks: “It reminded me of when I ‘found out I was black’ at an age not much older than her.” By that, she means that she found out that the world would view and treat her differently — worse — for the color of her skin. Camille Bridges, mother of Camryn Bridges, also addressed Abby’s behavior to E! News. “[Abby] tried to spin Camryn as being the poor one and there on scholarship.” she recalls. “I shut that down immediately.” “She loves appropriating our culture and never appreciating it,” Camille adds. “She did not give black choreographers on the show acknowledgment of their work,” she accuses. “She continuously put Camryn in afros.” Camille admits that she “cannot remember everything.” However, she confirms that “the environment was extremely hostile with her there.” “We were so relieved when she was gone especially when we thought she wasn’t coming back,” Camille reflects, referring to Abby’s incarceration. Abby’s recent story has been her cancer battle, but before that, she spent months behind bars. “When she returned,” she shares, “I looked at Camryn and told her we’re leaving. I didn’t care anymore about the ‘platform.'” “I was done,” Camille affirms. “The woman is a mess. She is incredibly two-faced.” “She would say the most terrible things on camera, then tell Camryn how she was better than the girls on the team, mainly the ones she trained,” she says. “It was a traumatic experience that I wish on no one,” Camille concludes.

Meri Brown Vanishes! Where is the Sister Wives Star?!?
by Hilton Hater on June 4, 2020 at 4:23 pm
Meri Brown… out? Over the past couple days, Sister Wives fans have noticed that Brown has been busy at work, sharing Facebook posts to promote various LuLaRoe clothing items and outfits. This is not unusual. Brown has made a lot of money off the business endeavor. Meri, who shares daughter Mariah with Kody, also set up guest retailers to run Facebook Live sales all week. Also not unusual. What many fans did take note of, however, and what was unusual, though, was this: The TLC personality, who is always very active on social media, did NOT tag her location when she posted on Instagram. This has prompted many followers to ask a simple and obvious and maybe even worrisome question: Where is she?!? Brown has made a point of exerting her independence of late. In a recent Instagram post, for example, Meri recently wrote the following: I don’t need anyone but ME to tell me how to dress in the morning, or how do do my hair, or heaven help me, how to do my eyebrows! I’m a woman who has lived on this earth for nearly 50 years, and I’m not afraid to say it. I’ve raised a daughter. I’ve had ups and downs. I’ve had crazy and amazing life experiences. She then continued as follows: I’ve loved and been loved. I’ve felt pain and caused others pain. I’ve felt comforted and hopefully have been a comforter. Point is, I’ve LIVED. These experiences have shaped and formed me. And I’m not finished yet! Why might this be relevant right now? Because the combination of Brown NOT revealing her location, along with Brown stating for the record that she is NOT under anyone’s control (such as awful husband Kody), has folks wondering if she’s finally making a move. Away from Flagstaff and away from a spiritual marriage that continues to make her unhappy. Meri first sparked divorce rumors when she posted without her wedding ring and shared cryptic quotes in May. “When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person that walked in. That’s what the storm is all about,” she wrote back then. She also published the following around this same time: “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. Do the thing you think you cannot do.” All this said and theorized, it could be much speculation over nothing. Meri could absolutely be at home in Arizona or having just taken a quick trip someplace, not that most stay-at-home restrictions around the country have been lifted. And yet: This is a situation worth monitoring. For many months, Sister Wives fans have been pushing Meri to leave Kody. Wouldn’t it be amazing if she at last took this advice and just disappeared for awhile? View Slideshow: Sister Wives RANKED: Who is Kody Brown’s #1?
13 Reality TV Hoaxes You Totally Fell For
by Hilton Hater on November 2, 2015 at 1:48 pm
Admit it: you’ve been had at some point in the past, haven’t you? You thought what you were watching on reality television was 100% real, only to later learn the devastating truth. We’ve all been there. And now we can all be here: relive the most shocking reality TV show hoaxes in history below… 1. Dance Moms We’ll just let Maddie Ziegler, arguably the show’s top performer, lay it right out for you, courtesy of an interview with USA Today: “The producers set it up to make us all yell at each other. You know how I said that moms do fight? The moms have a fake fight sometimes. Afterward they just start talking and laugh about it.” Host Abby Lee Miller really does suck, however. that’s not fake. 2. House Hunters Bobi Jensen blogged in 2012, on a site titled “Hooked on Houses,” that her experience on House Hunter was totally contrived. Turns out, the couple had selected its home prior to appearing on the show and producers even changed Jensen’s story over why she was moving. 3. Breaking Amish Can we change the title of this TLC series to “Having Already Broken Amish?” After the very first episode aired, it came out that most participants had already left their Amish family for the bright lights of the big city. 4. Storage Wars Dave Hester, a prominent presence on A&E’s Storage Wars, left production and sued the network over the phony aspects of the show. He said producers loaded units up with items to give each episode an artificial angle and that they even funneled money to teams to keep each episode’s bidding competitive. 5. Ghost Adventures Ghost Adventures star Aaron Goodwin was fired in 2014 after he stopped by the podcast Are We Alone and explained how the network staged reactions, sound effects and other aspects of the program. He said it was “sickening” that he was part of such a “fraud.” 6. The Hills Lauren Conrad, Brody Jenner and other cast members have come out and said pretty much everything you saw on this MTV reality show as scripted. Shocking, we know! View Slideshow
