Michelle Duggar Shares Parenting Advice Online: Make Sure You Have Date Nights!

With 19 kids (and counting!), it’s safe to say Michelle Duggar knows a thing or two about motherhood.

While her methods may sometimes be controversial (the Duggars don’t even allow their kids to hug before marriage), when it comes to things like maintaining your sanity and sleep schedule while raising a small army, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone more knowledgeable than Michelle.

Fortunately, as you know if you watch 19 Kids and Counting online, Michelle is more than happy to share her pro tips with the world.

The Duggar matriarch took to her blog recently to dole out words of wisdom to some new moms who had sent her questions. 

Considering we rarely hear Michelle talk about anything that’s not related to her church or her family, it’s refreshing to hear her stressing the importance of “me time” for new mothers:

“Take naps at the same time the baby does,” Michelle writes. “Even if it’s just for an hour. Afterwards, you’ll feel so much better and be ready to tackle the world.”

Michelle adds that parents should be sure to “have a date night every week:”

“[Dates] are key to building and strengthening the marriage relationship, because that gives your children stability in their lives. It reminds them that their parents love each other and their relationship is a top priority in the family.”

Of course, in Michelle’s book the best way a husband and wife can show that they love each other is popping out a litter of young ones. Last we heard, Michelle Duggar is still hoping for baby number 20!

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom: Calling Off Divorce?!

It’s been almost a year since Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce from Lamar Odom, and the proceedings are still ongoing.

It’s unclear why Khloe and Lamar are dragging their feet, but if they don’t hurry up and finalize their split soon, the whole thing will be thrown out of court, forcing them to start over at square one.

  • Khloe Kardashian Flaunts It
  • Lamar Odom Outside a Club

Radar Online has obtained court documents indicating that Khloe was informed back on October 9 that her case is headed for automatic dismissal due to the amount of time that’s passed since she first filed.

Perhaps it’s for that reason that Lamar went missing last month, reportedly after receiving word that Khloe was hoping to finalize their divorce.

Of course, it’s not just Odom who’s dragging the process out. Rumors that Khloe isn’t over Lamar have been circulating for months, and the reality star’s own sisters have questioned her motives for postponing court dates.

A source close to the case says Khloe is capable of proceeding without Lamar’s consent, but she has declined to do so:

“Khloe was told be her attorney that she could file a motion to have the divorce granted, even though Lamar hasn’t formally responded,” says the insider. “However, Khloe has held off taking that important step.”

One person who is reportedly very concerned with Khloe’s unwillingness to finalize her divorce is French Montana. French and Khloe have been dating for on and off for several months and sources say he refuses to fully commit to Khloe until she’s divorced.

Watch Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons online to see Khloe try to get over Lamar…with the help of French.

Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian: Double Wedding on Tap?!?

According to the latest issue of Life & Style, wedding bells will soon be ringing…

… for both Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian!

Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian Wedding Cover

The cover story claims Kris Jenner has struck a television deal for both her daughters to get married at the same time, with Kourtney supposedly exchanging vows with Scott Disick and Khloe with French Montana.

Why did Kourtney finally say yes to Scott after eight years of dating? What happened the night Montana proposed to Khloe?

The tabloid says it will reveal all to anyone who opens its pages. Via a series of anonymous, totally real sources, we have no doubt.

“Kris pitched the idea to Ryan Seacrest and E!,” Life & Style writes of the dual wedding. “Of course they were over the moon with the idea. “This will be bigger than [Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s] wedding.”

This blockbuster news is especially surprising because Life & Style only just reported two weeks ago that Disick is in love with Khloe. That should make for an awkward wedding day, don’t you think?!?

The only thing more ridiculous than the notion of Kourtney and Khloe getting hitched simultaneously is pretty much EVERYthing that happens when we watch Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons online.

Also of note from this issue of Life & Style, as teased above: There’s a holiday style for every occasion?!? No way!

Cher


Cher has Tweeted that the Kardashians are “bitches” who should be “drop kicked down the freeway.” She made a point of saying she is NOT kidding.

Taylor Lianne Chandler: Michael Phelps’ Girlfriend Reveals That She Was Born a Man

Shortly after Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI back in September, it was revealed that he had been spending time with a new girlfriend just before his brush with the law.

Taylor Lianne Chandler was with Phelps the night of his arrest, and is rumored to have dated the Olympian for several months:

The relationship became a subject of tabloid interest due to the couple’s age difference (Phelps is 29, Chandler is 41).

Now, however, it seems there’s an even more unexpected element to the May-December romance. In a recent interview with Radar Online, Chandler reveals she never told Phelps that she was born as a man named David Roy Fitch:

“I was born with male genitalia with no testicles, but I also have a uterus and no ovaries,” Chandler explains. 

Chandler adds that she began presenting as female while still in her teens, and later had surgery to become a woman.

In the interview, Chandler also details how her passionate affair with Phelps began.

Taylor says they met on Tinder back in August, and Phelps later invited her over to watch a Baltimore Ravens game.

“One thing led to another, and we made love during halftime. Later we had sex again. The intimacy was amazing! It was the first time in my life someone has made me feel like a true woman.”

While Phelps is expected to complete rehab this week, Taylor says she’s unsure if their relationship will continue, as she believes Phelps might feel that dating a transgender woman could be damaging to his career.

FKA Twigs Calls Out Racist Haters, Embraces Robert Pattinson Relationship

Things are getting very serious between FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson.

According to a new report, the singer and the actor may be living together and may even be planning a wedding. (Sorry, Kristen Stewart.)

But FKA Twigs admits in a new interview with USA Today that dating the former Twilight Saga star has not always been rainbows and sunsets… not when so many supposed fans of Pattinson have expressed so much disdain for Twigs online.

“I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week,” Twigs says. “Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it’s unacceptable online.”

As Pattinson and Twigs have been spotted holding hands in both Europe and New York City, the vitriol has only increased, with the latter assuming most of it comes from “14-year old kids that should be in bed.”

Twigs says it feels “weird” and “disgusting” to be getting attention for simply dating someone and she tries not to take any of it personally.

“I know that’s not really because of me or what I’m doing,” Twigs says. “The positivity that I get from [my relationship] makes the more challenging aspects… very worth it.”

The artist is still adjusting the life in the spotlight and says it’s easier for men than for women, due to a clear double standard.

“Sometimes I look at someone like James Blake, and I kind of envy the fact that he’s a 6-2 English guy and no one will say he’s changed his T-shirt from black to blue,” she laments. “People will only talk about his music.”

Anna Shannon Announces Plans to Write Tell-All Book, Fights With Lauryn Shannon on Facebook

Last month, the world learned that June Shannon is dating Mark McDaniel – the man who served ten years in prison for molesting June’s eldest daughter, Anna.

In the weeks since, Anna’s situation has only gotten sadder, as June has consistently lied about her relationship with McDaniel, and may have even stolen from Anna to buy McDaniel a car.

Not surprisingly, the newly-married 20-year-old has cut ties with her mother. Anna and June are currently engaged in a high-profile war of words, and they’ve both publicly accused each other of distorting the truth.

Thus far, the majority of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fans have expressed their support for Anna, but as June continues to give interviews in an effort to clear her name, Anna seems to be growing concerned that her side of the story will get buried under her mother’s lies.

So perhaps it’s not surprising that Anna has decided to carry on the proud tradition of embattled celebrities and write a tell-all book about some of her uglier experiences in the spotlight.

Anna broke the news on her private Facebook page earlier today:

“I think I’m going to [write] a book,” Anna wrote in a status update. “Don’t know how successful I’m going to be, but I’ll try…Who is ready to hear it?”

She immediately encountered some backlash from her younger sister, because apparently her family hasn’t messed with her life enough lately.

Lauryn Shannon posted a comment reminding Anna that she never graduated high school, and then quickly deleted it.

“For one thing, you don’t have to graduate to write,” Anna responded. “Stay out of grown folks’ business and be a kid which you still are…stay off my page.”

June Shannon then commented on Anna’s status, saying, “When I seen Lauryn post that comment I made her take it down.”

Not surprisingly, Anna has yet to respond to her mother.

Boyfriend Sends EPIC Break-Up Text, Cites 6 Must-Read Reasons for Split

Let the following text message serve as a warning, ladies:

You may wanna avoid dating any man who is unusually close to his cat.

We offer this unsolicited advice on behalf of Amy Nelmes’ good pal, who was recently dumped by her boyfriend in immaturely/hilariously/awesomely memorable fashion

“My friend just sent me this break-up message she received after 7 weeks of dating. My fav reason for split is #3,” Nelmes Tweeted upon posting the following text:

Amazing Break-Up Text

We’re not sure if this is a text message fail or a wild text message success… at least in the eyes of everyone not involved in the now-former relationship.

In the course of one message, this guy came across like a social media stalker… a crazy cat owner… and a stuck-up prude.

Don’t cry yourself to sleep over this one, Bobo. We think you’re gonna come out on top in the end.

Plus, consider all the other ways in which you could have been dissed, dismissed and dumped via text message:

#TransformationTuesday Breakup


Ouch. This is not the way you want #TransformationTuesday to go. Not at all.

Speaking to an Australian news site, Bobo said of her ex:

“He was 30, had a job, a car and a house. Certainly not what I normally manage to attract, so I thought I was onto something. He was a bit of a nerd, perhaps a bit quiet, but a genuinely nice guy all the same.”

She also said she’ll never again date a man with a cat.

Justin Bieber: Turning to Religion to Turn His Life Around?

Hey, have you noticed?

The celebrity gossip world is a little less cute and a little less scandalous these days.

That’s because Justin Bieber hasn’t really been in the news, with the exception of outside parties wondering whether or not he’s dating Selena Gomez at the moment.

Another Justin Bieber Selfie

But Bieber hasn’t been arrested in months. The cops haven’t been called to his home for any parties. Heck, he hasn’t even told any bodyguards to beat up any cameraman.

What gives?!?

According to TMZ sources, Bieber has been hanging out in Rancho Mirage outside Palm Springs, exiling himself there from friends, alcohol, marijuana and women.

He’s dedicating himself for two solid weeks to the works of God, though it’s unclear if he’ll actually become a proselytizer.

Still, cameras did recently catch The Biebs with the book “Occupy All Streets” by his side. This tome teaches one how to spread the Lord’s word and resist bad temptations.

Justin Bieber Workout Pics


Justin Bieber is so hot!!! He posted this shirtless montage of himself working out to Instagram.

Bieber, of course, has never been shy about his religion.

He has a tattoo of Jesus Christ on his calf and he was baptized this summer in a New York City bathtub.

Plus, come on. Did you click through those photos above of Justin Bieber shirtless? If those aren’t evidence of a higher power, we don’t know what could be.

Kendall Jenner Reacts to Parents’ Divorce: It Sucked!

Kendall Jenner has opened up for the first time, in any real depth, about her parents no longer being married.

Speaking to Nightline’s Juju Chang, the model – who recently signed an endorsement deal with Estee Lauder – said of Kris and Bruce Jenner splitting up after decades of marriage:

“It sucked.”

Kendall Jenner Ad Still

But the teenager is trying to put the divorce in perspective.

“I try to think of it as it’s not the worst thing that could have happened,” Kendall says.

Last fall, after 22 years as husband and wife, Kris separated from Bruce, with the couple referencing Kendall and Kylie Jenner in a statement at the time.

“We have children together, and we have memories and holidays and traditions,” Kris Jenner then told Us Weekly last month of the relationship these days. “I don’t want to give that up. I don’t want him to take that away from me and I don’t want to take that away from him.”

Kendal told Nightline that she hasn’t chosen sides in the break-up. She’s just happy to have both parents around.

“I still am so close with both my dad and my mom,” she notes. “Nothing has really changed, except for the fact that now my dad lives on a beach, which is awesome. That’s not that bad… everybody’s happy.”

Tune in to ABC on Tuesday, November 18, at 12:35 a.m. ET to watch Kendall’s complete interview, in which she also talks about her modeling career and how she has tried not to take advantage of her family’s name to succeed in it.
