Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Divorce: What’s the Hold-Up?

It’s inevitable at this point: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon going to get a divorce.

The couple has been living separately for months and Carey made it pretty clear in a recent concert that she believes Cannon cheated. Correction:

She KNOWS Cannon cheated!

So, what’s the hold-up? Especially considering the fact that Carey and Cannon have a prenuptial agreement in place?

Reportedly, the singers aren’t fighting over money or property or anything couples typically clash over.

Instead, they are ensconced in a bitter custody battle over their shared eight dogs. Yes, EIGHT DOGS!

Carey and Cannon have allegedly reached an agreement when it comes to their massive fortune and also when it comes to the custody of their three-year old twins.

But the canines are another matter entirely.

The estranged power couple – who married after just six weeks of dating in 2008 – separated in August.

Since then, Mariah has been touring and, some say, falling apart without Cannon.

The America’s Got Talent host, meanwhile, has been keeping busy with various commitments, and has also been linked romantically to Amber Rose.

She filed for divorce herself last month, after all. Hmmm…

Monica Lewinsky Comes on Twitter, Gets Blown Away By Loads of Crude Jokes

Monica Lewinsky is back, and you know what that means: Lots of BJ jokes!

But when she’s not making fun of Bruce Jenner like the rest of us, Lewinksy is forced to endure endless gags (sorry) about the times she gave oral sex to a sitting US president.

While she’s kept out of the spotlight in the years since the Bill Clinton sex scandal, the mere mention of Lewinksy’s name brings to mind images of stained blue dresses and improperly placed cigars.

Beyonce name-dropped Lewinsky in “Partition” back in May. Just days prior, a controversial New York Post headline claiming that Lewinsky “sucks” went viral online.

Needless to say, it’s been a rocky return to public life for the 41-year-old former intern, and her social media debut yesterday didn’t go much smoother.

Seemingly all too aware of what was coming (again, sorry) Lewinsky sent out her first tweet, “#HereWeGo” early Monday morning.

Within minutes, Lewninsky’s page looked like the minutes from a meeting of late 90s late night comedy writers. Some samples:

“Hey I’m just here to drop some loads…of knowledge.”

“Can you recommend a good dry cleaner please?”

“Insert answer about ML not answering b/c of being too polite to talk with her mouth full.”

You get the point. Of course, Lewinsky’s reemergence into public life is part of her campaign to combat cyber bullying, so the reception she’s received on Twitter has only helped to prover her point.

Of course, many have pointed out that she’s one of very few Americans to have a presidential scandal named after, and she would have been the butt of jokes in whatever media was available at the time.

But the fact remains that the Internet in general and social media in particular provide a sort of stranger-to-victim access that never existed in previous generations, leaving all of us more vulnerable than ever before.

And certainly no one is more aware of that frightening truth than Monica Lewinsky.

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard: Expecting a Baby Boy!

The pregnant Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard have confirmed, via 19 Kids and Counting network TLC, that they are expecting a baby boy together.

Yes, #BabyDilly is officially gonna be a #BabyDude!

Jill Duggar Baby Gender Announcement

The pregnant Jill Duggar, 23, announced this past August that she is expecting the duo’s first child. Jill married Derick Dillard, 25, in Arkansas on June 21, 2014.

How do they feel about their future baby’s gender?

“I was really excited,” says Derick Dillard. “As a new dad, to have a firstborn son to be our first child and be the leader of his siblings, it is very special.”

“I was praying for a big, healthy baby,” adds Derick about the night before the appointment where they found out. “And Jill added, ‘Just healthy, healthy.'”

The couple told their families the news Saturday.

“Oh yes, there was some screaming in the room,” says, Jill, who is 18 weeks along. “I thought all along we were having a girl. Everyone made their guesses.”

“They were just elated,” adds Jill. “My mom and dad both thought it was going to be a boy and my grandma did, too. They are all really excited.”

The Dillards prepared for the big ultrasound reveal with a big breakfast of waffles with syrup and whipped cream, fruit, chocolate milk and lemonade for Jill.

Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard have some lunch at work. So cute.

“He stretched out his legs full length,” says Jill.

“He was trying to be like Dad.”

This fall’s season of the family reality show has focused heavily on their love story. Tonight’s 19 Kids & Counting Season 14 Episode 13 is even called “All About Jill.”

On the show, they haven’t even gotten hitched yet. In real life, just five months later, they’re shopping for items like overalls, plaid shirts and pants for #BabyDilly.

“We are not going to do a letter theme,” says Jill of what they plan to name the little boy. “But we may do some kind of theme, like family names.”

The fourth-eldest child in the expansive family, Duggar took three tests to determine if she was pregnant after she suspected that she may be expecting.

Following brother Josh Duggar, 26, Jill is the second Duggar to start her own family. Her little sister Jessa Duggar, 21, will wed Ben Seewald November 1.

Jana Duggar is still single. :(

Anyway, congratulations to Jill and Derick on their exciting news, and be sure to tune in tonight to see their amazing journey play out behind the scenes.

Their First Meeting (Sort Of)!


The Arkansas natives grew up within 45 minutes of each other, but didn’t meet until late 2011. Jill recalled when Derick stopped by while caroling with a church group, and not long after, “Derick contacted my dad and asked if he would be a prayer partner during his two-year term in Nepal.”

Weatherman Invites Dog on Set, Immediately Regrets It

Mike Sobel is the weatherman for the Global Edmonton Morning News.

And he came up with what seemed like a perfectly innocent and adorable idea for a live television segment last week:

Why not relay the impending weather to viewers while hanging out on set with Ripple, a brindle mastiff mix.

But Sobel quickly learned why this wasn’t exactly the best idea: Ripple doesn’t like to sit or stand still. He does like, however, to eat through his leash and jump up on the nearest human.

You’ve gotta love live television, don’t you?

And at least Sobel can find solace in the fact that he isn’t alone when it comes to on-air reporter snafus.

Remember the reporter who thought Samuel L. Jackson was Laurence Fishburne? Or the reporter who was robbed while reporting on a robbery?!?

Relive some of the most awkward moments in news history here:

Sam Lutfi Defends "Work" With Britney Spears and Amanda Bynes in Bizarre Open Letter

Sam Lutfi, Amanda Bynes’ friend and Britney Spears’ former “manager,” is defending his “work” with the stars in a bizarre open letter that has Spears’ camp on high alert.

Evil Lurks Behind Her

Lutfi writes on XOJane (dot) com that so many of the things written about his relationships with troubled celebrities like those two are mere misconceptions.

“I’ve worked in Hollywood for a long time,” says Lutfi, who was instrumental in getting Amanda Bynes placed under a 5150 hold earlier this month.

“I am a problem solver, and I care about helping people get out of what may seem like some of their more difficult places in life,” writes the mysterious character.

“Over the years these experiences have led me to see what happens when too much fame and too much money can sometimes get the best of celebrities.”

This, Sam Lutfi says, is “why you have seen me associated with some of the more famous celebrities when they are in their most trying hours.”

Britney Spears, Amanda Bynes and Courtney Love are among those he name-checks, and Britney’s team is none too pleased about that reference.

Calling Sam’s letter “disgusting and appalling” an insider said he’s “obsessed with Britney, and is one of the main reasons why Britney has a bodyguard around the clock!”

“Britney’s dad, Jamie, won’t take chances when it comes to Sam; Jamie believes that given the opportunity, Sam would try to worm his way back into Britney’s life again.”

“Her life was in shambles when Sam was with her. Inviting photographers into her house so they could get to know Britney as a person … who does that?”

“Someone who wants to be a celebrity.”

Britney Spears Bikini Wallpaper


Most people can only fantasize about Britney Spears with wallpaper like this. David Lucado could wallpaper himself with Britney’s body and he let it slip away.

In recent weeks, Lutfi had insinuated himself into Amanda Bynes’ inner circle, six and a half years after Spears’ camp cut him off and most people forgot about him.

“All I can tell you is that Amanda is getting the help that she needs and that I am working closely with her and her family,” he says of his latest project.

He wants to “move on from the tabloid sensationalism of her ‘breakdown’ and concentrate on what a rare, talented young woman she has always been and continues to be.”

Bynes, though, has grown increasingly wary of his motives as well. To hear Spears’ camp tell it, they are smart to keep him at arms length and then some:

“If Sam did indeed have nothing but the best intentions, why does he need go public with it? Just look at the creepy pictures Sam posted in the XOJane story with celebrities.”

“It seems like he’s trying to prove he’s an A-lister. What is his job exactly? Sam says he has worked in Hollywood for years, but in what capacity?”

“During Sam’s libel and defamation lawsuit against the Spears family, he admits he has had no professional work in Hollywood that paid him more than $10,000.”

The mystery deepens. But we’d sure as heck stay away from this dude if we were you, or any celebrity going through a tough time, or a great time.

Just steer clear is the point.

Amanda Bynes is Dope


Amanda Bynes thinks she is dope. The actress has posted this photo to Twitter.

Joan Rivers Ordered "Burn Book" Diaries to be Published After Her Death; Tell-All Reportedly Contains Shocking Revelations!

Now that Joan Rivers’ cause of death has been determined, the world can stop focusing on the events of her final days and get back to the lifetime of work that made her a household name for generations.

R.I.P. Joan Rivers (1933-2014)


R.I.P. Joan Rivers (1933-2014). She will never be forgotten.

Joan was frequently brilliant, but just as often scathing, brutal, and relentless in her assessments of other celebs.

From claiming Kristen Stewart slept her way to fame to accusing Miley Cyrus of incest, Joan never seemed to hold anything back, but now sources close to the legendary comic are claiming that she saved her best (and the worst) for last.

“Joan requested that after she is gone, her personal diaries be turned into a book,” a source tells Radar Online. “The problem is, they are having a hard time shopping it around because of how over-the-top defamatory it is.”

“Joan bashes celebrities and politicians in first-hand accounts throughout her life. Among her biggest revelations is that President Obama is gay, which is something she joked about while she was alive.”

Wow…Well, if that’s the sort of thing her people are offering as a preview, we can only imagine the kind of revelations that are found throughout the rest of the book.

Naturally, whoever publishes the book is certain to face a barrage of lawsuits, which is probably exactly why Joan requested that it not be published until after she was dead. 

She may have come off as entirely unfiltered, but Rivers also knew how to avoid unnecessary trouble.

The book seems certain to be published at some point, at which time, Joan will be defended by a bunch of lawyers she’s probably never met and she’ll anger a slew of celebs who have no one left to rail at. Surely, that’s a last laugh the legendary comic has had in mind for years.

Joan Hosts the Tonight Show


Joan was a frequent guest and fill-in host on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show. She and Carson never spoke again after she launched a rival late night show.

The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 5 Recap: It’s the Plague!

The Blacklist got its Da Vinci Code on for The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 5.

The latest installment of this NBC hit was all about secret organizations and hidden maps in priceless works of art. And let’s not forget about those plague-ridden bones.

The concept of terrorists using biological warfare is certainly a very real and a very scary one, but a group digging up ancient bones in order release the plague seems a little ridiculous.

Not that The Blacklist is really aiming for realism on a weekly basis, of course.

Once Samir and Liz were exposed, it was obvious a cure for this disease would be found So there was scarcely any drama to be wrought from their temporary quarantine.

Still, we’re assuming most viewers were okay with this because there main focus was on Red and Liz. Did the episode reveal any more about their relationship?

Red was anxious to track down a woman implied to be his daughter, though never confirmed, and he relied used both on his criminal and his legal resources to do so.

Liz was jealous. But not jealous enough to reveal that Tom is hidden behind her basement door.

In the end, Red tracked down the girl in question, Zoe Dantonio, and she does look a lot like Liz.

But it remains unclear what this means and we’re left to wonder for another week whether Red is actually Liz’s dad. Sigh.

Is everyone else as frustrated as we are by the series dragging out this key plot point? Would you like to see it resolved sooner than later?

Go watch The Blacklist online via TV Fanatic if you need to catch up and sound off now!

Ariana Grande Asks Miley Cyrus For Advice: Help Me Make the Diva Rumors Stop!

For months now, Ariana Grande diva rumors have been circulating online and in the tabloids, detailing the singer’s mistreatment of fans and staff, as well as her borderline psychotic demands.

Ari claims that she’s got nothing in common with the sharp-tongued egomaniac that’s portrayed by the press, and that she’s deeply hurt by the false reports of diva behavior.

So hurt, in fact, that she did what so many of us would like to do in our darkest hour – she called up Miley Cyrus and was like, Girl, make it stop!

  • Ariana Grande Blows (Kisses)
  • Miley Cyrus Acting Weird

“I was upset and I contacted Miley,” Ariana said in a recent interview with MTV.

“She was like, ‘Girl don’t even look at it. Just be happy that you’re blessed. You have family and friends that love you. You have fans that love you who know what’s true and what’s not.”

Wow. We would’ve thought Miley’s advice would be more along the lines of smoke a ton of weed and put some weird crap on Instagram, and you’ll feel better instantly!

Instead, she offered some genuinely thoughtful input. It’s like these days, she’s twerkin’ with her head…or something.

Anyway, for whatever reason, rumors of Ari’s diva behavior have seemed to subside in recent weeks.

Grande is officially dating Big Sean now, so maybe the relationship has calmed her down, or perhaps it’s just given the media something else to focus on. 

Hopefully Miley will be able to offer some advice when the inevitable reports of “drama” between Ari and Sean begin to surface online. 

Her Name Was Inspired By a Cartoon


Ariana’s name was inspired by Princess Oriana from Felix the Cat!

Duggar Family Secrets Revealed: What Goes on Behind Closed Doors?

The Duggars of TLC’s 19 Kids & Counting fame seems like the picture perfect family in many respects, but what goes on behind closed doors?

A lot of things you might not expect, according to a surprising new expose.

Dates Without Chaperones


The Duggar parents often accompany their children on dates in order to maintain their “accountability” and “keep things from going in the wrong direction,” per Jim Bob. The girls are fine with this, as being alone with men puts them in grave “moral danger.” When the parents aren’t available, their older siblings will often tag along, making every date a group date and a family affair.

With 19 children to raise (or at least 15 now that a handful have reached adulthood), one would think Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar would be exhausted, 24/7.

Not necessarily, though. Their maligned ace in the hole: Jana Duggar!

It’s the put-upon eldest daughter who’s exhausted from a lifetime of raising the kids, and some of the other older siblings, who do most of the babysitting.

“Jim Bob and Michelle have what they call the ‘buddy system,’” an insider says of the household’s inner workings, and that system works as follows:

“Each of the older kids gets paired with a younger kid that they have to watch over and help out. It’s great for them, because it’s like they have a set of free nannies.

The kids, however, “don’t really have a choice” in the matter.

Jana Duggar, as a 23-year-old, often gets saddled with even more responsibility, as she’s managing the managers as well as her own little buddy.

“Jim Bob and Michelle have been known to go out on date night and leave all the kids at home with Jana in charge of the house,” the source says.

“They’ll be gone for hours, during which she has to watch over everyone. She does it with a smile, but it’s sad. It’s not like she ever gets a date night!”

She’s not even allowed to date, according to some reports.

There’s only so much one beautiful young woman can do, too, because of the sheer numbers involved. When the parents are away, the kids run wild.

If Jana can’t whip something up for all of them to eat, which is a tall order, “they’ve been known to just have snacks like pretzel sticks and yogurt for dinner.”

“They bounce off the walls!” the source claims. “They are allowed to ride their scooters in the house, and even put the youngest kids in a wagon.

“They drag them around at high speeds. It seems like they pretty much do whatever they want. They even have an indoor slide and rock climbing wall.”

“It’s amazing that no one’s ever gotten hurt.”

Or that Jana gets no credit for it.

Jana Marie Duggar


Jana Marie Duggar is so beautiful … and put upon, supposedly, by a family that relies on her to help take care of the others but never have a life of her own. If that’s true, it’s sad. Is it time for her to break free?

To their credit, there has been no sign of abuse, mental or physical, or rumors of any legitimate scandals with the family, despite its increasingly high profile.

While to a point, you can’t expect a family that large to coexist without a level of chaos thrown into the mix, you have to wonder about the toll it takes on Jana.

With Josh Duggar married with children, Jill Duggar marrying Derick Dillard and Jessa Duggar set to get married November 1, Jana’s plight seems even sadder.

To see the family as they want to be portrayed on TLC, watch 19 Kids and Counting online to catch up on their comings and goings, then comment below:

Should Jim Bob and Michelle cut her a break and bring in some hired help to keep the kids in line instead of their vaunted buddy system? Discuss!

Toys R Us Under Fire for Breaking Bad Action Figure: Read Bryan Cranston’s Epic Response!

Heisenberg 1, Florida Woman 0.

Late last week, Susan Schrivjer of Fort Myers started a Change.org petition to get Toys ‘R’ Us to remove Breaking Bad action figures from its shelves.

The items – which featured  Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in Hazmat suits, along with tiny guns, sacks of cash and a bag of meth – are on sale now for $13.99.

Breaking Bad Figure

But it isn’t the price with which Schrivjer takes issue.

“Toys R Us is well known around the world for their vast selection of toys for children of all ages,” the documents reads. “However, their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.”

To date, the petition has over 3,600 signatures.

“While the show may be compelling viewing for adults, its violent content and celebration of the drug trade make this collection unsuitable to be sold alongside Barbie dolls and Disney characters,” Schrivjer adds.

How does Cranston, a four-time Emmy Award winner for his role on this AMC smash, feel about the flap? This is what he Tweeted in response:

“Florida mom petitions against Toys ‘R Us over Breaking Bad action figures.’ I’m so mad, I’m burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest.”

HA! We love it.

Toys ‘R’ Us, meanwhile, issued its own statement in regard to the petition, addressing Schrivjer and writing:

“The products you reference are carried in very limited quantities and the product packaging clearly notes that the items are intended for ages 15 and up. Items from this TV series are located in the adult action figure area of our stores.”

That should pretty much put an end to this controversy, shouldn’t it?

Unless some toddler is gonna watch Breaking Bad online, why would he or she even want to own a Walter White doll? Seems easy enough in this case for parents to simply not purchase the item for their kids.

Religion


If Miley Cyrus is God then there’s probably hope for us all.
