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.”

Oscar De La Renta Dies; Legendary Fashion Designer Was 82

Iconic fashion designer Oscar De La Renta has passed away at the age of 82.

Over the course of his more than 50 year career, De La Renta designed clothing for some of the world’s most famous women. Most recently, he designed Amal Alamuddin’s wedding dress

Born in 1932 in the Dominican Republic, De La Renta first made a name for himself in the US by designing dresses for Jacqueline Kennedy.

In the decades that followed, first ladies Betty Ford, Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton, and Laura Bush frequently wore designs by De La Renta.

De La Renta was diagnosed with cancer in 2006, but appeared to be in good health in recent months.

The news of De La Renta’s death broke just minutes ago, but the most famous names in the world of fashion are already expressing their grief and condolences on social media.

Appearing at this year’s CFDA awards, De La Renta spoke of his recent health problems, saying, “Yes, I had cancer. Right now I am totally clean. The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die.”

“We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is that you appreciate every single day of life.”

De La Renta leaves behind a wife, a son, and several step-children.

Sadie Robertson: My Dad Approves Dancing With the Stars Costumes!

Dancing With the Stars cast member Sadie Robertson might not be quite as conservative as, say, Jill and Jessa Duggar, but there are some similarities for sure.

Her father, Duck Dynasty star and executive producer Willie Robertson, gives the final approval to all of the 17-year-old’s Dancing With the Stars costumes!

So far, Boss Hog hasn’t had any problems with Sadie’s looks, including a jungle-inspired feathered frock, a sophisticated gown and a fun fringed number last week.

Will her Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 8 look change that trend this evening? We’re not sure, but it sounds like she’s going to be stunning.

“I feel like a ballerina in it,” Sadie says. “It’s so beautiful. I love it.”

Designed by costume designer Daniela Gschwendtner, Sadie will wear the dress during her Rumba to “Diamonds” by Rihanna with partner Mark Ballas.

Sounds like that could be a mildly sensual number … hmm.

We’ll have to see what she wears and if Willie approves, and how the newest member of the judges’ table feels about Sadie’s routine with Mark Ballas.

Pitbull will be on the panel as the week’s guest judge, filling in for Len Goodman, as well as the musical act, as he’s set to perform his new  single “Fireball.”

Also guesting this week is Leah Remini, who will fill in as co-host for Erin Andrews, while she covers the World Series as Fox’s MLB sideline reporter.

Jase Robertson: No Beard!


Jase Robertson of Duck Dynasty with no beard. That was a long time ago. With Jase is his wife Missy.

As for Sadie’s other show, Duck Dynasty Season 7 premieres November 19. Will Robertson still be competing for the Mirror Ball title on ABC by then?

The way she’s looked so far, don’t count her out!

One contestant will be ousted on DWTS tonight, and we would be extremely surprised if it were her – or if she didn’t survive until at least the top four.

Grey’s Anatomy Sneak Peek: A Marriage in Crisis

If VH1 has taught us anything over the past few years, it’s that Couples Therapy rarely works.

But that won’t stop Arizona and Callie from giving it a shot on Grey’s Anatomy Season 11 Episode 5, an installment titled “Bend & Break” that will shine the spotlight directly on this very troubled twosome.

Arizona is angry because Callie makes all the decisions. She has a habit of making her wife feel selfish at all times.

Callie is angry because, among other reasons, Arizona slept with another woman. Was that also her fault, Callie asks?

Yeah. Like we said, this is a twosome in big trouble…

Is there any way Calzona survives the season? Heck, is there any way Calzona survives the hour?

It may be time for this couple to go their separate ways, as difficult as that will be for long-time viewers to see.

To be reminded of just how Callie and Arizona ended up on this seemingly doomed path, you can watch Grey’s Anatomy online. We make it very easy to do so:

In another, Bush cozies up to Paul Johansson (who played Dan Scott) and James Lafferty (who played Nathan Scott) and quipped:

“My two favorite Scotts.”

Tragically, the actor many most closely associate with One Tree Hill was unable to make the event.

“Sorry I can’t make it 2 Paris, Milan & London guys,” Chad Michael Murray Tweeted on October 14. “Heavy into shooting @AgentCarterTV. I’ll try 2 make out sometime soon! Have a great time.”

Fortunately, you can relive the best One Tree Hill quotes via our friends at TV Fanatic and you can also watch One Tree Hill online there in order to relive the best episodes.

Dog Doesn’t Care About The Weather Feel Good Video Of The Day

dog on weather forecast 2It’s Monday: we need a laugh, right? This video will give it to you. Global News decided to showcase a dog from the Edmonton Humane Society by having Ripple the dog join meteorologist Mike Sobel for the weather forecast. Ripple, it turns out, was more interested in playing with his leash than hearing about the weather. RELATED: Pharrell Williams’s song ‘Happy’ goes to the dogs.

This video proves the Hollywood adage: “You don’t want to work with children or animals.” From the time he comes on the set, Ripple is OBSESSED with his leash. When he finally chews through it, that wasn’t enough: then he tried to get it back. This was unfortunate because the leash was wrapped around Mike Sobel’s hand, which he held up in the air. This encouraged Ripple to essentially try to “climb” Mike to get back at his toy- LOL. Take a look. Oh, and if those temps seem very low to you, remember that in Canada (like most of the world), they measure degrees in Celsius, not Fahrenheit, so they aren’t in danger of getting frostbite ;).

Once Upon a Time Season 4 Episode 5 Teaser: Darkness Falls

It’s a sweet song that has been re-enacted by the cutest mother and daughter pairing in the history of the Internet.

It’s also a simple question that has been asked by parents to kids for generations: Do you wanna build a snowman?

But this topic will take on an entirely different meaning next Sunday, as the following teaser for Once Upon a Time Season 4 Episode 5 concludes with The Snow Queen telling Anna exactly what she wants.

And what she wants is to build a snowman. Why does that sound so ominous?

On the most recent installment of this ABC smash drama, Hook and Emma went on a date. It involved Mary Margaret actually using a Polaroid camera to capture the moment.

But things turned less cute because Hook had gone to Mr. Gold in order to get his left hand back, only for some unexpected consequences to befall the pirate as a result.

How did he go about fixing these? And why does Gold now have some pretty strong leverage over Hook?

All good questions. All of which can be answered when you watch Once Upon a Time online via TV Fanatic. Do it here:

Jeremy Calvert Gets "Faith" Tattoo: Will He Stand By Leah Messer Despite Cheating Claim?

Teen Mom 2‘s Jeremy Calvert showed off a new tattoo that may indicate a thawing of sorts following a recent bitter and icy public feud with wife Leah Messer.

  • Leah Messer Calvert and Jeremy Calvert
  • Jeremy Calvert Faith Tattoo

On Saturday, Calvert posted a photo on Twitter of his arm with “Faith” tattooed across it. Jeremy captioned the photo, “Some bare knuckles tattooing.”

Just last week, Calvert accused Leah Messer of cheating on him, adding that that he “caught” his wife red-handed, and even called out her ex Robbie Kidd.

“Go back to Mingo and have a wonderful f–king weekend with Mr Kidd,” he ranted on Twitter, referring to their native West Virginia’s Mingo County.

He later deleted that from his profile, but he clearly put it out there for a reason.

Messer, who confessed to cheating on first husband Corey Simms with Kidd one week before their October 2010 wedding, quickly denied the accusation.

“I never cheated on my husband and he knows that,” Messer wrote.

“There was a rumor and he believed it but it’s okay.”

Believed, as in past tense? One can only hope her denial of cheating on Jeremy Calvert is true, because it would be a shame if the rumor were true.

Calvert and Messer have one child together and share custody of Leah’s twins from her relationship with Simms; Messer and Calvert have not commented further.

Leah Messer and Daughter


Leah Messer and one of her three daughters share a tender moment.

Their moms, however, have been ALL over it!

Messer’s mother, Dawn Spears, and Calvert’s mother, Tammy Calvert, engaged in a war of words online over whether or not Leah cheated on Jeremy.

“She know’s she’s caught and it over. Her own mother know what she was doing and covered for her. What’s that say about there people,” Tammy wrote.

Commenting on Starcasm’s Facebook post, she added, “when your in a custody battle the last thing you need is this. But she made her choice, Now LIVE WITH IT!!!”

That was a reference to Leah Messer and Corey Simms’ custody battle, but Dawn came to her daughter’s defense, pointing the finger at Jeremy’s dad.

Insinuating that he started the (false) rumor about Leah, she wrote, “I contacted Robbie myself and he said he wasn’t even in town. So this is crazy.”

Leah’s big sister Victoria Messer also got in on the gossip, saying on a local radio show. “Just because it happened once does not mean it happened again.”

“She would never. He’s upset, you know, even though nothing happened. I talked to Jeremy last night and he told me, ‘I love Leah and I love the kids.”

“I did post stuff on Twitter but I was upset.’”

Water under the bridge now though?

Paris Hilton as a Brunette: Love It, Loathe It, or Couldn’t Care Less?

Aside from being filthy rich and coining some crazy annoying catchphrases, Paris Hilton is perhaps best known for being blonde.

So needless to say, her Instagram followers were thoroughly shocked when Heiress Paris posted the photo below over the weekend. 

 

Yes, that’s Kim Kardashian’s former BFF sporting some chestnut locks and, as Paris would say, that’s hot.

Frankly, we think she looks better than ever, but a number of her fans have vocally disagreed. Whatever your thoughts on the change, there’s no denying that Paris needs to get the web’s attention by whatever means necessary these days.

Her “career” has been slumping lately with far more downs than ups in 2014. Paris’ “Come Alive” music video tanked for the perfectly good reason that it was terrible. 

By contrast, Hilton’s Carl’s Jr. commercial was surprisingly popular, but when your most recent career highlight involved eating a burger in a bikini, it might be time to hire new management.

In other news, Paris is apparently hanging out by the skee-ball machines at Dave & Buster’s these days. We’re not sure if that means she’s fallen on hard times or if she’s just trying to appeal to the 99%.

Earlier this year, Paris snubbed the Kardashians at a party in LA, so if she’s just trying to get in good with us workin’ folk, she certainly knows how to go about it. 

Anyway, what do you think about Paris’ new look?
