1. Dance Moms

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

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.

4. Storage Wars

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.

5. Ghost Adventures

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."

Rob Kardashian Celebrates 31st Birthday, Shows Off MASSIVE Weight Loss!

Rob Kardashian has been laying low recently, and for good reason.

After all, things haven't been going super well for him lately.

Or for the past several years, for that matter.

He obviously loves his daughter very much, and he probably had like three or four good days during his relationship with Blac Chyna, but besides that, it seems like he's been in a really dark place for a really dark time.

He had that extremely messy, allegedly abusive relationship with Chyna that ended in flames, he released those nude photos of her that's gotten him into a heap of legal trouble.

Chyna's claimed in court documents that he was violent towards her, and that he would threaten suicide to manipulate her, which, you know, isn't great.

On top of all that, his health has been an issue for the past few years now, and in multiple ways: remember when his family was begging him to go to rehab?

Rob's also struggled with his weight for a long time, and that's leading into what we're going to be talking about today.

See, yesterday was his birthday -- he's 31 now.

To celebrate, Kris Jenner threw a party at her house. Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe were there, though it looks like Kendall and Kylie were on vacation.

Kim and Kourtney brought their kids as well, and little Dream was in attendance!

We know that because Kim shared this picture in her Instagram stories -- and look how great Rob looks:

It's clear that he's been losing quite a bit of weight, right?

He posted Kim's photo on his Twitter account, and his followers all agreed that he's looking good here.

"Dream is just beaut and don't get me started on Rob," one person wrote. "He looks so good I'm so happy for him."

"Wow the weight loss!!" another commented. "Keep going you've got this!"

Referencing one of the most iconic Kardashian moments, another of his followers told him "YAS DADDY ROB UR DOING AMAZING SWEETIE."

And it's not just that he's lost weight, but he also looks genuinely happy here, which is rare to see these days.

Oh, and since it was his birthday, you know his family took some time to leave some sweet comments about him on their social media accounts!

"Happy birthday to my brother Rob!!!" Kim wrote. "I love you so much and wish you all of the happiness in the world! I love raising our kids together, you're the best dad and friend! Can't wait to celebrate today!!"

In a post of her own, Khloe said "Happy birthday Rob!!! This year is YOURS! I can't wait to see all you conquer! Seeing you as a father has been so rewarding!"

"You're an incredible father, brother, and friend!" she added. "I can't wait to raise our daughters together! I love you Bob."

Meanwhile, Kris told him that he's "the most wonderful son a mom could ever ask for and I thank God for you every day!"

"It brings me so much joy to see the incredible father you have become. I am so proud of you!!"

Blac Chyna even set aside her issues with Rob to wish him a happy birthday -- she shared this old photo of them with Dream to do so:

Blac Chyna's happy birthday to Rob

It's nice that he seems to have so much support in his life, and especially that he and Chyna seem to be on decent terms, despite everything.

Hopefully this means that he's finally on the way to getting better, for good this time, mentally as well as physically.

Happy birthday, Rob.

Amy Roloff Prepares for Easter, Hears It from Jesus Fans

Without intending to do so, Amy Roloff has managed to make a plateful of cookies seem controversial.

The Little People, Big World star jumped on Instagram last week to share a delicious looking photo.

It features Amy sitting alone at a table, except for the yummy items in front of her; from mini muffins to some kind of bread and even a few painted eggs.

Amy Roloff Easter Table

"I’m already planning for Easter," she wrote to open a lengthy caption, continuing as follows:

"It’s a special time and celebration to me because what Jesus did! And I’m with my family. Amy Roloff’s Little Kitchen is all about sharing what I love with you.

"Recipes, food and why I love being in the kitchen making delicious baked goods and meals. That gather people together and around the table."

So... why the aforementioned controversy?

Because Easter is arguably the most sacred and important of all Catholic holidays.

It is meant as a celebration for the surprising resurrection of Jesus Christ.

And Amy is using it as a way to shill for her website and her company?!? Does she have no sense of decorum or respect?!?

So argues a few harsh critics, at least.

Chris Marek and Amy Roloff as a Pair

"Really, Amy?!? Must you exploit this holiday for your own selfish gain?" wrote one follower in response to this post.

The post, meanwhile, goes on a bit more:

I remember how I loved coloring eggs w/ my kids and hiding them before they woke up to find them. And making Easter baskets with something special in it that reminded them what Easter truly is all about. I

’d baked a lemon poppy seed bread (in photo) quiche, cheesecake, honey baked ham and other goodies for our meal. I get excited just thinking about it.

We get hungry just thinking about it.

But some get angry.

"Just stop, Amy," said another hater. "Of ALL days, this one is not about you."

In the past, Amy's daughter also got dragged for using God and religion to pitch her own products.

Amy Roloff and Chris Marek, Valentines 2018

Amy, meanwhile, typically hears it from trolls who don't approve of her romance with Chris Marek.

But he wasn't the source of contention this time around.

Concluded Roloff in her caption:

My kids are all grown up now and it’ll be fun to see them with their kids at Easter and start their own traditions. What are some of your Easter traditions and things you make? Check out Amy Roloff’s Little Kitchen at

Thank you for your support and encouragement. Have a wonderful almost Spring day.

Roloff also used the hashtags "#amyroloffslittlekitchen," "#Easter," "#celebratetraditions," "#familylife," and "#sharingourstory."

What do you think of this scandal?

Is it really a scandal?

Is Amy just doing what any entrepreneur anywhere would do?

Or should Easter really not be a holiday that gets the hashtag treatment because it is too sacred?

We want to hear your opinion, readers!

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard Find New Way to Scam Fans, Get So Much Hate for It

One of the big things people don't like about Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard is that despite being on a big TV show for years, they still beg their fans for money.

That and all the bigotry, those are the two big things.

Jill Duggar Pregnancy

It's just always been so bizarre, because you'd think that the money they made from the show would be more than enough to support them and all their endeavors, at least for a little while longer.

If nothing else, Jim Bob owns a fleet of private planes, it seems like he could give them a hand if they were struggling that much.

But regardless of what you'd think or how things seem, the fact remains that there have been several occasions when the Dillards reached out to their supporters for some cash assistance.

And that's weird.

After getting lots and lots of criticism for all their GoFundMe stunts over the years, and after failing to convince people that they're just regular missionaries and that's how things are done, they've given up with the fundraisers, for now, anyway.

Jill Duggar Rocks Gold Shoes

However, Derick did get the family fired from reality television, so you have to make ends somehow, you know?

Well, it looks like they've come up with a new plan!

There's this foundation called The Tuttle Twins, and they release books for children about things like politics and history -- books that the Duggars would enjoy.

As the foundation explains on its website, "Each year, hundreds of millions of children are spoon-fed false history, bad economics, and logical fallacies. Your child is not immune."

They say their books are a way for parents to "inoculate their children against this trend to help them really grasp the importance of freedom and free markets."

Jill Duggar Holding SamSam

So we're sure the books are fine and correct and not at all terrifying.

Anyway, The Tuttle Twins is holding this contest on their Facebook page where you share a picture of your kid with one of their books, and if your picture gets the most likes and shares, you win a cash prize of $350.

You can see where this is going, right?

Jill, who had to know that she has a massively unfair advantage with this kind of thing, entered the contest with this picture of Israel, and just to make sure she gets all those likes, she made sure she was in the photo, too.

Jill Duggar with Israel

So far, Jill has far more likes than anyone else in the contest, and there's really no way that she won't win.

It's really a shame.

There are plenty of families who could legitimately use $350, and for Jill to take that opportunity away from those people is just sad.

And lots of people seem to agree.

"Completely unfair that this picture was allowed," one person commented on the photo. "Until recently Jill Duggar Dillard has appeared on TLC for many years. Shame on her for using her celebrity to win a contest with money as a prize."

Jill Duggar Promotes Milk on Instagram

Another person wrote that she shouldn't be eligible for the contest because "no one stands a chance against her and that's really not OK."

"Jill Duggar is using her fame as a public figure to garner more votes for her son, which is NOT fair to all the other entrants who don't have their names and faces plastered all over the place," yet another Duggar critic wrote.

"Jill should withdraw her entry, and she should be disqualified."

She should, but she won't -- instead, she's been posting the link to the photo on her Twitter and Instagram accounts and asking everyone to "help Israel win!"

The foundation won't intervene either, because as they explained to their many outraged followers, "We are not going to disqualify somebody merely because they have a larger social network."

Subtext: "we are not going to disqualify somebody merely because they have a larger social network because this mess is getting us a whole lot attention and we are living for it."

Hope Jill does something neat with that cash prize!

Kim Kardashian Has the Kraziest Klause in Her Will

Image is everything.

So tennis great Andre Agassi used to tell television viewers in commercials for Canon cameras.

But this is a tagline that could easily be adopted by Kim Kardashian, someone who has dedicated most of her public persona to looking her absolute best at all times.

Kim Kardashian with HUGE Lips

This has been the case for nearly all of Kim's life in the spotlight...

... and it will apparently be the case when Kim is close to the end of her life.

Allow us to explain:

In a video she recorded with ELLE Magazine this week, the former sex tape actress explains to fans that she has inserted an unusual clause into her will.

It doesn't have to do with where her possessions go after Kim dies, but ratehr how her hair and makeup are done while she's still alive.

Says Kardashian in the footage:

“I made a section [in my will] that if I am so out of it that I can’t even communicate - and I am like shitting on myself - I definitely need my hair, my nails and my makeup done."

We're pretty sure she was being serious.

Kim Kardashian, Yeezy Season 7 Selfie

In one sense, this is perfectly logical.

Of course someone who even gets all dolled up while topless and eating noodles would want to maintain her appearance at all times, despite her health.

In another sense, however, this is pretty sad.

Poor Kim thinks so much about how fans view her, and has so much stock in her outer beauty, that she can't imagine a day when she simply doesn't care.

She can't imagine still being able to draw a breath without considering whether her nail color matches her eye shadow.

Really, that's no way to live, is it?

Kim Kardashian, White Bikini Top Selfie

In the aforementioned ELLE video, the 37-year old mother of three reads and confirms headlines from various publications prior to addressing the grooming clause in her last will and testament.

“I want to look as good as possible,” she says simply, adding that nothing will stop her from posting “racy photos.”

And, hey, look, we're all for Kim Kardashian nude photos.

Keep 'em coming, K-Squared!

The point here is not that we want to see Kardashian wearing many layers of clothing in her social media photos.

Kim Kardashian West Snapshot

The point is simply that one should never be this concerned with one's image.

Agassi made the motto we cited above famous early on in his career, back when he wore neon colors on the court and had long, shaggy, sexy hair.

Eventually, however, he grew up and matured and focused on tennis above all else, enjoying a second act to his career that included many Grand Slam titles and universal respect.

He stopped caring about how he came across to others and cared only about succeeding in his job and satisfying those close to him with his play and his attitude.

Will Kim ever reach the same level of maturity and perspective?

That, dear readers, is the question.

Chelsea Houska: This is My Baby Bump! This is My Due Date!

Chelsea Houska is here to prove that she really is pregnant.

The Teen Mom 2 star surprised fans on Thursday night by announcing that she and husband Cole DeBoer are expecting a child together.

It will be their second as a couple and Chelsea's third overall, considering she created an eight-year old daughter named Aubree with ex-lover Adam Lind.

Chelsea and Cole Picture

"...GUESS WHAT!" Chelsea wrote on Instagram as confirmation of her expecting state, adding the following words to go along with her sonogram photo:

"A sweet baby girl will be joining the DeBoer clan in a few short months! We could not be more excited."

And we're so very excited for them!

But just in case you somehow doubted the legitimacy of Chelsea's announcement, the MTV personality has gone ahead and provided Twitter followers with undeniable evidence...

... in the form of her baby bump!

"Here’s the wittle bump since everyone’s been asking lol this pregnancy has been a breeze so far and I feel pretty damn good!" Houska penned a caption to the image below:

chels bump

How precious, right?!?

Houska and DeBoer got married in October of 2016 welcomed son Waston Cole in January of 2017.

You can go back and watch Teen Mom 2 online episodes from last year to see how Chelsea made it pretty clear that she was prepared for yet another child in the near future.

Speaking to MTV about her major announcement, Houska said the following about her adorable little girl:

“Aubree did such a great job keeping this a secret and she said at school on Monday she’s gonna walk in and start yelling it down the hallways!”

AWWW! That's adorable.

As for Cole?

He is "very excited" and "talks to my belly every night," the reality star said.

Chelsea Houska, Daughter

DeBoer himself also spoke to the cable network, expressing his excitement over becoming a father again:

"I'm ecstatic to have another princess under our roof," he said. "The men in this household are standing their ground even though we are now outnumbered.

After she shared the baby bump snapshot above, Houska answered a few fan questions about her pregnancy, revealing, for example, that her due date is in September.

“But I’m thinking she’ll come in August because I tend to have my babies a couple weeks early! We’ll see!” she Tweeted.

cd response

Finally, Houska was asked about her pregnancy fashion.

Does she have any advice?

What does she lean toward when growing a human being inside her fetus?

“So far it consists of leggings and hoodies cause it’s freezing here,” wrote the 26-year old, concluding:

“We’ll see how I keep myself together in the summer though! I remember summer was miserable when I was pregnant with Aubree!”

Still, it's always worth it in the end, right?

Congrats, Chelsea and Cole!!!!!

Donald Trump Jr.: Secret DMs, Bacon Fetish... REVEALED!

We all love bacon.

It may very well be the perfect food.

But new direct messages released by a model named Melissa Stetten have revealed the level to which Donald Trump Jr. apparently adores this pig-made delicacy...

Donald Trump Junior

... and it's A LOT.

Donald Trump Jr. loves bacon a lot.

The oldest son of President Donald Trump, whose marriage legally fell apart this week, sent Stetten a number of messages in November of 2011, not long after his wife gave birth to son Tristan.

The DMs don't necessarily reflect any sort of inappropriate relationship between the businessman and the model.

They simply depict an odd obsession of Donald Trump Jr.'s that has been rumored about over the years.

“Surprised his marriage didn’t work out since he was sending me DMs a month after his wife gave birth,” Stetten tweeted this week, sharing a screen shot of Trump Jr.’s message to her, which read as follows:

“Well Im getting s–t 4the bacon comment glad I opted not 2send the tweet asking 4pics from ur bathroom tweet last night;) people need2chil.”

Need an explanation?

Let's turn to Stetten...

She said on Thursday that this DM came after she tweeted a “joke about pulling a muscle changing a tampon” and - to her confusion - “he replied asking if I smelled bacon?”

stetten message

Once word of this exchange went viral, a spokeswoman for Trump Jr. provided the full thread of their DMs in order to prove two things:

1. There was no affair going on.

2. Both sides were clearly joking around during their online chat.

Here is the full exchange:

full junior

We're happy to grant that Trump Jr. and Stetten were not carrying on in a sexual manner.

Was the former flirting with the latter? We'll leave that up to readers to debate.

Stetten told People Magazine, though, that she had “no idea” what The Other Donald meant by the bacon reference, although she did cite other Tweets from around this time that proved Trump has “some weird obsession with bacon.”

For example:

One tweet from Trump Jr. back then read:

“Does anyone else have a Bacon fetish??? It sounds so wrong but tastes so right!”

loving bacon

How does Stetten know Trump?

She doesn't, not really.

“He just started following me so I followed back," she tells People, adding:

"He would favorite my tweets and occasionally reply. I always thought of the Trumps as idiots so it was entertaining to see his failed attempts at hitting on me.”

In further Tweets shared by Stetten, she responded to his initial remark by joking, “@DonaldJTrumpJr soaking my body in bacon today,” to which he replied:

“Now you’re just toying w my emotions. Why don’t women come up w bacon perfume? Seems so much better than that channel [sic] crap."

He later wrote:

“Stop that!!! I am a happily married man,” with a winking smiley face.

Okay, there's no longer a debate: Trump was flirting with her.

weird tweet

Trump Jr. has not publicly responded to Stetten’s tweets.

He does have other things to worry about, of course.

As previously mentioned, his wife and the mother of five children just filed for divorce.

And he's also under investigation for possibly colluding with Russian agents in order to help swing the Presidential election to his father.

Courtland Rogers: Jenelle Evans' Ex Arrested AGAIN!

Courtland Rogers has had quite a tumultuous year.

Just 12 months ago, it looked as though things were finally looking up for Jenelle Evans' troubled ex.

Courtland Rogers Mugshot

Courtland was released from prison, and he stated on social media that for the first time in his adult life, he was clean, sober and determined to turn his life around.

Sadly, Courtland's period of self-improvement turned out to be short-lived.

In February, Rogers was arrested on charges of possession with intent to distribute.

He spent a little time behind bars, but at some point, he was released on bail awaiting trial.

However, Courtland was apparently unable to keep his nose clean yet again.

Courtland Rogers 2017 Photo

According to Starcasm, Rogers is currently being held in North Carolina's Brunswick County Detention Center on charges of parole violation and being a habitual felon. 

The jail's site says there was "no bond" in his case, so it's safe to assume Courtland is still locked up.

“The probation board has up to 10 days to have a hearing with Rogers for the violation,” says a BCDC spokesperson.

“He will be released depending on what the probation board rules.”

So it sounds as though Courtland won't be held until his trial.

However, it also seems unlikely that he'll get out of this mess without serving some hard time.

Courtland Rogers And Lindsey Renee

Starcasm was able to speak with Courtland's pregnant wife, Lindsey Rogers.

She says there's not much she can reveal about the specifics of her husband's case, but she's confident that everything will work out in her family's favor.

"I don’t want to say too much as of now," Lindsay tells the site.

"The whole situation is a misunderstanding and a lot more to the story than what people read online

"In the end, the truth will come out. We have hope that he will be home before our son is due. I love my husband and I know the facts and God is in control."

Here's hoping Court is able to turn things around for the sake of his wife and child.

Ellen DeGeneres Exposes Kim Kardashian's Surrogate's Identity

Ellen DeGeneres is a perpetual gift, and this video is no exception.

You know how Kim Kardashian has been adamant about protecting the identity of her gestational carrier, even though she also let fans watch her surrogate meet her family.

Well, Ellen has come out with a new video that reveals the surprising identity of the woman who carried Chicago West to term.

Kim Kardashian could not safely carry another child due to multiple pregnancy complications that could have potentially become life-threatening.

For that reason, she and Kanye elected to use a gestational carrier -- so that an embryo from her egg and his sperm was implanted into a third party.

This surrogate remained anonymous, but she had to follow strict dietary restrictions during the pregnancy. She was basically carrying royalty, folks.

But even when Kim brought this woman onto Keeping Up With The Kardashians, her identity remained obscured so that this woman could retain her privacy.

Fans know this woman only as Lorena.

Is Ellen really willing to shatter that?

Well ... not exactly.

"If you didn't see the episode where Kim introduces her surrogate to the family," Ellen begins. "I'm gonna show you some of it right now"

And then the almost familiar video begins.

There is a twist, however.

Mixed in with the very real footage from Keeping Up With The Kardashians, in which Kim's unnamed gestational carrier's face is never revealed as she meets the very pregnant Khloe and Kylie, Ellen shows this woman from a different angle.

Except that, as you'll see in the video below, the surrogate is "revealed" to be none other than Ellen herself.

Obviously, Ellen, who just turned 60 this year, was not Kim's surrogate. For so many reasons.

(Don't get us wrong, lesbians can and do act as gestational surrogates just like straight women, because anyone who tells you that the job involves having sex with a man is lying to you)

Ellen, the perpetual prankster, has had her team edit her into the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clip.

They actually did a pretty good job, though the wig itself isn't terribly convincing.

And neither is Ellen's behavior.

In real life, Ellen donates hospital rooms and gives to charity and needy individuals.

Also in real life, Kim's gestational carrier is a sweet, kind woman who loved bringing a child into a happy household.

In the video, Ellen The Surrogate is shifty and the last sort of person that you would want carrying your child -- or any child.

"I could use a drink. Any Pabst Blue Ribbon or Michelob Ultra?" She appears to ask upon arrival. "Shoot, I just remembered -- I'm not allowed alcohol."

Anyone who is pregnant should absolutely not drink alcohol, of course. Which is the point of the joke.

Ellen follows it up by asking for, as if it's an alternative to alcohol: "Do you have wine? Red or white."

Ellen The Surrogate can also be seen digging into Kris Jenner's purse and pulling out a handful of cash.

As you'll see as you watch the video itself, it's a funny bit.

Ellen isn't maligning the real Lorena or even herself -- she's just poking at what fans don't know about this woman and eliciting some laughter in the process.

Ellen is such a gift. She's our favorite part of the non-existant "Deep State."

Take a look:

Farrah Abraham: Maci Bookout is Doing Porn Too!

Farrah Abraham ... well, the girl has seen better days, that's for sure.

Back in October -- and as we're just now seeing on Teen Mom OG -- she was given the choice to either keep filming the show or keep working in the adult industry.

She chose the adult industry, or as she explains it, she was neither fired nor did she quit, she was bullied out of the show because of all the hate crimes committed against the nation's top female celebrity.

So Farrah is out, and she's obviously been pretty salty about it for months now.

The latest example of that?

She's talking about how hypocritical it is that she lost her job for doing porn when Maci Bookout is doing the exact same thing and is facing no consequences.

Really, this is an argument she's trying to make.

But why would she even think that?

Let's get into it!

1. Farrah's Firing

Farrah abraham castle selfie
You surely know this story by now, but let's recap just for fun: after nearly being fired a few years ago for that celebrity sex tape, Farrah got fired for real last October when she began getting real into that thing where she masturbated on a webcam and streamed it online.

2. Did She REALLY Get Fired?

Farrah abraham red hair
Things were confusing for a while, because sometimes she said she was fired and sometimes she said she quit, but now we know that she was given an ultimatum, and she chose to quit filming Teen Mom in favor of her adult endeavors.

3. Huh

Farrah lynn abraham
We saw that all very clearly, but still, she's suing Viacom for unlawful termination and also because she says executive producer Morgan J. Freeman made her fear for her life, because hey, why not?

4. Interesting ...

Farrah abraham blonde photo
Real quick though, remember the first time this was an issue, back when Teen Mom came back from being canceled when Amber went to prison? In the beginning, Farrah wasn't asked back at all, and when producers approached the other moms about finally bringing her back on, Maci in particular had an issue with it.

5. Think of the Children

Maci bookout interview with mtv uk
At first, Maci said that she'd quit if Farrah came back, but then she said that she wouldn't allow Bentley to film because she didn't want her son on the same show as a porn star.

6. Empty Threats

Maci bookout and bentley
That didn't last too long either though, and before we knew it, both Maci and Bentley were back to filming as usual, even though Farrah was back in full force herself.
