Derick Dillard: Evil TLC Tried to Forced Jill Duggar to Promote Counting On!
by Hilton Hater on January 18, 2020 at 5:39 pm
Derick Dillard is really going out his way these days to disparage the reputation of his former employer. As any follower of the Duggar family must be aware of by now, Jill’s husband has it out for both is father-in-law and also for TLC, recently alleging that the network edited him and his immediate family out of a Counting On episode that paid tribute to Mary Duggar. This may or may not be true. But at least the complaint is timely, you know? Mary sadly passed away in 2019 and TLC only just aired an installment that centered around her memorial. In a subequent message, however, Dillard responded to a three-year-old tweet yesterday, putting TLC on blast for supposedly trying to “force” his wife, Jill Duggar, to be in a promotional photo for Counting On. Yes, the guy just went back THREE YEARS to call producers out for this act. While hopping on Twitter on Friday, January 17, the ex-reality star replied from a Tweeted posted in February of 2016 and wrote: Notice how we were not a part of the promotional for this. They tried to force Jill to be in the promotional pic for this show, but we refused. So they just inserted other sisters from the home. As you can see below, the Tweet about which Dillard took issue teased the return of Counting On back in the day. Over the past few weeks, Dillard has made it clear that he and his wife will never again appear on this show. On December 26, the father of two said on social that there was “no chance” a return would happen unless significant changes were made. “The conditions we were filming under took us to the brink of sanity and could have easily destroyed our lives if we had continued that trajectory,” Derick wrote. “We are now trying to pick up the pieces.” Sounds extreme, but who are we to judge we guess. Along sort of similar lines, when Dillard was asked about his salary for the series, he replied that he and Jill were originally under the impression the family didn’t make any money from it. Then they learned the truth. The former TV personality eventually alluded to the “extreme emotional pressure from within and without” his relatives to appear on the program, which ultimately led to a “painful burning of bridges.” Dillard has often, of late, blamed Jim Bob Duggar for lying to him and for forcing him to film. Derick has ominously referred to “legal/financial threats” if he and Jill didn’t appear on Counting On episodes, although it’s unclear whether he meant these would come from TLC or Jim Bob. Heck, it’s unclear in general of Dillard is even telling the truth in all of this. He was reportedly fired by TLC a long time ago for making homophobic comments, something very much worth remembering. When it comes to this controversial family, pretty much every member is in the wrong at all times. View Slideshow: Derick Dillard: PROOF That He’s Telling the Truth About Jim Bob Duggar Revealed?
Leah Messer Opens Up About Addiction: I Almost Killed Myself!
by Emily Trainham on January 18, 2020 at 5:38 pm
Remember a few seasons back on Teen Mom 2 when Leah Messer was really, really struggling? If you’ve kept up with the show, we’re specifically talking about the season where she literally nodded off while holding a baby. Although she maintained for a while that her problems (and even her trip to rehab) were due to anxiety, she’s since admitted that she was dealing with a drug addiction during that time. Now, in a new interview, she’s giving even more details about what happened and what went down. And her story is darker than we ever realized … 1. Our Girl Leah Leah has always been a fan favorite for many Teen Mom viewers because she’s cute and likable and also because she has probably the most tragic story in the whole franchise. 2. However … We know about her daughter’s illness and her failed marriages, but something she doesn’t open up about too often is her struggle with addiction. 3. Looking Back In fact, she’s only ever really talked about it in depth once before — back when she was actively abusing drugs, she insisted she was dealing with anxiety. 4. Not So Much But viewers of the show were never really convinced, mostly because there were moments like this when she just straight up nodded off. 5. Right She explained it by saying that her doctor had prescribed her medication for her anxiety and that she was having a hard time adjusting to it — and when she went to rehab, she even said it was for her anxiety, not drugs. 6. Nope But obviously that was not the truth. View Slideshow
Lori Loughlin: Caught Up In Self-Destructive Pre-Prison Breakdown?!
by Tyler Johnson on January 17, 2020 at 10:52 pm
Her trial hasn’t even started yet, but those who know her bast say Lori Loughlin has accepted that she’ll soon be going to prison. And that’s not just defeatist pessimism on Aunt Becky’s part. Legal experts and insiders close to the situation say the actress will most likely be forced to do some time as a result of her role in the college admissions bribery scandal. Loughlin refused a plea deal, which means she’s unlikely to get off with a slap on the wrist like Felicity Huffman, who served a scant 12 days behind bars. So with her fate more or less sealed, Loughlin has reportedly been dividing her time between two very different pursuits in recent weeks. By day, Lori has been preparing for prison by taking martial arts classes and meeting with a consutlant who’s done hard time. By night, Loughlin has been indulging in every vice under the sun in order to distract herself from her future incarceration. A source tells Radar Online “on a mission to self-sabotage ahead of her sentencing.” “She seems to have given up and just wants to go down with a huge bang at this point,” the insider says. The informant says Loughlin is particularly struggling with the fact that she may have put herself in this position by refusing to accept a plea deal — a decision she apparently blames on her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli. “Lori turned the corner and backed out of considering a guilty plea due to her husband’s insistence,” says the source. “She had been talking to her lawyers about it, but her friends and family were encouraging her to pursue a plea deal. She’s only listening to Mossimo though.” Seems like if she were to regret anything it should be committing the crime in the first place, but what do we know? “There’s still a delusional side to Lori that’s keeping her fingers crossed for a miracle, but she’s scaled way back on legal meetings and preparing her defense ahead of the trial – and that’s a huge sign she’s accepted her and Mossimo’s fate behind bars,” the source claims. “Lori’s convinced she’s been totally scapegoated and is walking around in a furious fog, trying to make the best of things day-to-day,” the insider adds. “She almost doesn’t care what happens to her now, or so she says, so she’s doing what the hell she wants and saying a big ‘f–k you’ to her critics.” Hmm … seems like a bigger “eff you” would be holding it together and using her final days of freedom as an opportunity to things right with her daughters. But again — what do we know?
Kylie Jenner: Don’t Talk to Me or My Daughter EVER Again!
by Simon Delott on January 17, 2020 at 9:45 pm
While nosy fans are asking about Kylie Jenner’s new mystery man, she’s making it clear that her focus is on precious little Stormi. But now fans are worried that Kylie is ready to cut them off from her life after she posted an alarming new message. Kylie Jenner took to social media to share a series of new photos of herself and precious baby Stormi Webster. You can see mother and daughter twinning, even if they don’t exactly match. Stormi is still so little, but she’s pulling off those shades like a pro. But Kylie captioned this photo “Don’t talk to me or my daughter ever again.” Is she pissed off at her own fans? The meme actually originated in 2014 with a doctored image from Cowboy Bebop in which Spike appeared alongside a miniature version of himself. Since then, on Tumblr and Twitter, the meme took off, whether referring to a beloved fictional character or to an assortment of stuffed animals. In the past few months, the meme has of course been used to refer to Din Djarin and Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian. Most often, however, the meme is true to the original — showcasing two figures, where one is larger and the other small but otherwise identical. So what is Kylie Jenner trying to say with her pic? Basically, that she’s twinning hard with her toddler. She’s more or less calling Stormi her Mini Me, except that Kylie wasn’t quite two years old when Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me came out. If her meme doesn’t make much sense to you, that’s okay. She’s a Zillennial, and both Millennials and Gen Z delight in neo-dadaist humor. Stormi is Kylie’s pride and joy, and she’s growing up faster than you think. (Remember, Stormi turns two years old on February first! That’s just a couple of weeks away!) She is already forming memories and expressing her own budding personality. As we have seen in little snippets that Kylie has selectively shared with the world, Stormi has her own strong opinions on things. Kylie is extremely young for a mother, and even younger for a celebrity mother (not counting Teen Mom stars, anyway). Getting pregnant at 19 and deciding to go through with it can have life-altering consequences, as many women have discovered. But Kylie is from a wealthy, close-knit family. She is also a billionaire in her own right. Though Stormi has certainly changed her life, Kylie effectively has every game-breaking mod to motherhood and can give her Stormi her best chance. Some people have been murmuring on social media that Kylie is going to be less enamored with motherhood once Stormi hits her “terrible twos.” First of all, not all children go through that. Some toddlers are inherently more reasonable than others. That’s life. But second of all, Kylie adores Stormi. That won’t change no matter what developmental milestones Stormi hits. Plus, let’s be real. Kylie has her sisters and can afford a small army of nannies. Even tantrums are easy to manage if it’s only in a small dose. In the mean time, let’s enjoy the cute photos and enjoy the fact that Kylie is grounded enough to use common memes. View Slideshow: Kylie Jenner Playboy Cover: Revealed, Very Busty!
Teresa Giudice: My Kids Always Choose Their Dad Over Me!
by Tyler Johnson on January 17, 2020 at 9:16 pm
Now, that Joe Giudice has been deported and established himself in Italy, his marriage to Teresa Giudice probably isn’t long for this world. Intercontinental romances are always a tricky proposition, and the Giudices’ situation is made all the more untenable by the fact that they don’t seem to like each other all that much. These days, Teresa is dating a younger guy and while joe no doubt misses his four daughters, he seems to be okay with the fact that he’s separated from Teresa by a few thousand miles. It’s not exactly a conventional happy ending, but hey — whatever works, right? But at the time that the current season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey was being filmed, Joe was still in ICE custody, and Teresa had problems of her own — like the fact that her kids consistently refuse to take her side in arguments! Hey, we never said her problems were as bad as Joe’s! The latest episode found Teresa carping at her incarcerated husband about some nonsense involving a necklace. He said he once gave her one as a gift; she says he’s full of it, blah, blah, blah … ‘“He’s saying he did, so he did,” said 15-year-old Milania in an effort to squash the issue. “You don’t remember anything, so you don’t! You have such a bad memory.” Teresa getting roasted by her daughters is objectively hilarious, but the fact that she proceeds to lose it over the fact that they’re siding with Joe is a sad reminder of what a crappy environment these girls are growing up in. “Today started out, beautiful day with my daughters but Joe always gets the girls to go against me,” Teresa raved. “It hurts me tremendously. There should be no sides taken!” “My kids, they take Joe’s side,” she later complained to Dolores Catania. “Here I am busting my ass doing everything and then it’s like, he’s the greatest thing that walked the earth!” Naturally, it never occurs to Teresa that her daughters might feel bad for their father because he’s locked up in freakin’ ICE custody. Fortunately, there’s at least one adult living in the Giudice home these days. We’re talking, of course, about 19-year-old Gia. “Honestly, they’re good at aggravating each other,” Gia said of her parents’ constant bickering. “But when he lashes out, I just wish my mom would keep quiet, just because he’s fighting for his life in there.” Yeah, it seems like it would be a good time for Teresa to go a little easy on Joe, at least for her kids sake. But it’s one of the incontrovertible rules of the universe — given a variety of options, Teresa Giudice will always choose the worst one.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to Expose "Racist" Monarchy in Bombshell Interview?
by Hilton Hater on January 17, 2020 at 8:30 pm
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have publicly announced they are stepping back from the Royal Family. One would think, based on this simple fact alone, that things can’t get worse for Queen Elizabeth and company. But one would apparently be mistaken… Tom Bradby, a reporter known to be close to Meghan and Harry, wrote an article this week for The Sunday Times in which he talked in detail about the couple’s escape from what he dubbed the “poisonous palace.” Clearly, this person is not a fan of the current monarchy. Among the more interesting points raised and noted by Bradby is how the Sussexes either have considered are still are considering doing a “no-holds-barred sit-down interview.” And how the Royal Family is terrified of what a sit-down might expose. The reporter alleges this potential Q&A wouldn’t “be pretty” because it would paint the monarchy in an especially poor light. He believes Harry and Meghan would call out the Royals for being “racist and sexist” in its treatment of the Duchess over the past few years, which would partly explain why so many anonymous Kensington Palace insiders have trashed her to the press. Writes Bradby in this piece: “The atmosphere soured hard and early, but few meaningful attempts were made by anyone to heal the wounds. There is no doubt Harry and Meghan feel they have been driven out.” According to other outlets, Harry and Meghan started to consider this drastic move way back when Archie was born. Markle took fire for almost the duration of her pregnancy and the couple had no interest in raising their child amid such intense and damaging paparazzi attention. By now, of course, you must be familiar with the way Meghan and Harry told the world they were done with this lifestyle. If you need to be refreshed, however… We have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity The famous twosome also stated it will “look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step” in the near future. Despite this break from the royal family, they confirmed that they will “continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties.” As for the Queen? She’s essentially told her grandson to GTFO already if he feels this way. View Slideshow: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are Here to Answer ALL Your Royal Separation Questions
NeNe Leakes: Did She Really SPIT on Kenya Moore?!
by Simon Delott on January 17, 2020 at 8:14 pm
Even after the vicious SnakeGate feud in Toronto, NeNe and Kenya are still at war. And things are just getting started. During the Mid-Season 12 trailer for The Real Housewives of Atlanta, fans see three more fights. And it even looks like NeNe spits on Kenya. There are few things that the Real Housewives franchise loves to do more than send its stars on vacations, where tempers reach a boiling point. So they’re headed to Greece. Even after the vicious SnakeGate brawl in Toronto, NeNe hadn’t gotten all of her fury out of her system. Speaking on the phone to Wendy Williams in the new mid-season trailer, NeNe warns as much. “Somebody pushes me, Wendy, I’m gonna say some s–t,” NeNe predicts while Wendy, of all people, suggests that she treat them with kindness. And yet, somehow, we see NeNe managing to take that advice, at least when it comes to Porsha. “I love you like a sister, and I’m sorry,” NeNe says tearfully. The two lean in to exchange a meaningful, emotionally charged hug. Porsha confesses: “It’s been really hard without you.” Her sit-down with Cynthia Bailey dos not go nearly as well, unfortunately. “When you get mad at your friends, you’re the first one to try to tear them down!” Cynthia accuses. NeNe’s eyes widen in shock and she fires back: “Really?!” If there’s a path to peace for them, they both have a lot of work to do. Even more hopeless is the relationship between NeNe and her sworn enemy, Kenya Moore. “You ain’t gonna do nothing with me, ma’am!” NeNe yells in Kenya’s face at the middle of a party. The altercation appears to nearly turn violent. NeNe loudly proclaims: “I ain’t never gonna be what you want!” In yet another confrontation, we see Kenya — as cool as you please — asking NeNe to “please go to jail again.” As you can imagine, NeNe does not take this calmly. Instead, NeNe shouts back: “You is a dumb-ass bitch!” “You a big-ass…” Kenya fires back. They both love using some of the same insults. They have a lot in common. If you thought that they would only have two heated confrontations in a single trailer, remember who we’re talking about. NeNe appears to spit at one point, and fans immediately zeroed in on that. Did she spit on Kenya during a fight? During this, viewers can hear Tanya Sam yell stop! Fortunately, NeNe has taken to Twitter to clarify whether or not she actually spit on someone. But you won’t like the answer. “She need 2 be spit on wit all the horrible things she has said & done!” NeNe tweeted on Thursday, January 16. She continued her mini-rant, explaining exactly why Kenya Moore deserves such disrespect. “From constantly startin s–t wit me all season,” she complains. NeNe continues to list Kenya’s wrongdoings, adding: “lying on me.” She means lying about and/or to NeNe, not literally physically laying upon her. NeNe also complains of Kenya “sayin I’m on drugs & bipolar.” “Plus that recent tweet she posted so enjoy the moment!” NeNe suggests. “I DID the act,” she admits, “but DIDNT SPIT!” “I Wish i had tho!” NeNe concludes. No regrets.” Well, there you have it … we guess.
Leah Messer Reacts to Kailyn Lowry Pregnancy: I’m Not Surprised!
by Tyler Johnson on January 17, 2020 at 8:06 pm
There’s been no official confirmation yet, but we can say with increasing confidence that Kailyn Lowry is pregnant with her fourth child. The news was first leaked by a relative of Kail’s most recent baby daddy, Chris Lopez. Lopez’s aunt took to Instagram and posted a photo of what she claims ins Kail’s sonogram. Lowry currently has a restraining order against Lopez, and she recently accused him of domestic assault. The aunt says she spilled the tea about Kail’s pregnancy because “karma is a bitch” and because Kail “has slandered Chris and made him look so bad in the media.” Needless to say, it’s a messy situation. Which is probably why just about everyone in Kail’s inner circle has felt the need to sound off on it. First, Briana DeJesus commented on Lowry’s pregnancy, and not surprisingly, she wasn’t terribly sympathetic. Or at least she didn’t seem like her longtime rival’s plight took her by surprise. Turns out she’s not alone. Now, Leah Messer is offering her two cents, and as expected, she’s still a card-carrying member of Team Kail. Whether or not she’s even pregnant, that is! Interestingly, Leah says has no idea if it’s true that her best friend forever is once again knocked up. Messer recently told Hollywood Life: “I actually have not talked to Kailyn in a few days. I know I texted her and told her I loved her and I was there to support her.” “But I honestly have no idea about anything else.” “It wouldn’t surprise me [if she was expecting]. I mean, I don’t know. I know she definitely wanted a kid, another kid,” Leah continued. “Maybe she’ll have a girl if she is pregnant.” It’s more than a little suspicious that Leah claims she doesn’t know whether or not Kail is pregnant. Despite the fact that Lowry was openly displeased with Messer’s decision to join a cult, the co-stars have remained best friends. And we don’t mean that they’re the kind of on-camera best friends who conspiculously buddy up with one another at reunion shows. These two take exotic vacations together every chance they get. Most recently, they spent a month in Hawaii with their kids. Chris himself made a cameo on that trip (this was before the restraining order) and it seems he made quite an impression on Leah. “I have met Chris once and I loved Chris when I met him, and I am the type of person I only go off of what I know about you personally, my experience of you,” she told Hollywood Life. “And my experience of Chris when we went on vacation to Hawaii, he was great with all the kids. I legit trusted him with my kids to go to the beach and they loved him too,” she added. “My kids were obsessed with him.” Well, it sounds like Chris has Leah’s support. Of course, that might not mean a whole lot. View Slideshow: Leah Messer: Already In Love With New Costa Rican Boyfriend? For one thing, it sounds like it might not be as tight with Kail as she used to be, so she’s not really in a position to go to bat for the guy. On top of that, Leah is an actime member of a freakin’ cult. Yes, we’re serious. Suffice it to say, her judgment – and opinion of others’ life choices – isn’t worth a whole lot at the moment.

Amy Roloff Lashes Out at Loser Troll Who Just Dissed Ember
by Hilton Hater on January 17, 2020 at 7:38 pm
To Amy Roloff’s credit, this Little People, Big World star just stood up for both her young granddaughter and women around the world. To the discredit of society, meanwhile, Amy Roloff was forced to just stand up for both her young granddaughter and women around the world. Do better, people. Please try and do a lot better. Allow us to set the scene here, okay? On Thursday, Amy was fortunate enough to spend time with Audrey and Jeremy Roloff’s two-year old daughter, Ember, along with their newborn son, Bode. The very excited grandmother shared some photos from this babysitting adventure (above and below), writing as a caption: “What a fun time the other day seeing my grandson, Bode [before] his doctor [appointment] and then a little fun time [with] my grand-daughter Ember. I love these special grandma moments.” “I definitely cherish them.” Very simple and sweet caption, right? And very simple and sweet snapshots, right? Nope, wrong, apparently… based on one Instagram comment in response at least. “Comb her hair,” the user wrote, adding a face palm emoji this critical Tweet of a toddler. Amy didn’t just sit back and let this total loser insult Ember and/or Amy as a caretaker, though. She actually replied in perfect fashion, using the above Tweet as a jumping off point for commenting on what young girls in general have to go through in a patriarchial universe. “And we wonder where or when or if girls start becoming so self-conscious on [looks?],” she wrote back, adding: “She was in her element, having fun and I had a great time creating a wonderful moment with her. Sorry, but hair had nothing to do with it.” It’s a shame Amy had to educate this loser in such a manner, but we applaud her for doing so. Her female empowerful point here follows daughter-in-law Audrey doing something similar. The mother of two, who gave birth just over a week ago to Bode, posted a photo of her bare belly on Wednesday. Here, take a look at it below: She used this as an opportunity to keep things real with her followers, rather than spout some nonsense about needing to get her pre-pregnancy body back as quickly as possible. “While this past week has been full of newborn snuggles and heart melting moments… it’s also been really hard,” Audrey admitted as a caption. She then concluded: “Despite the physical pains, I know these weeks of forced slow-down are exactly what my body and heart needs. REST. “So if you’re in this season of life too, give yourself permission to rest and heal. “I’m letting go of the pressure to rush back into working out, my social life, household chores, my pre-pregnancy clothes, or any kind of commitment that conflicts with recovery and rest.” We wish her only the best.

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
