Tori Spelling Sick Or Nervous Breakdown?

tori spelling instagramWhat in the world is going on with Tori Spelling? The ‘True Tori’ star posted this pic on Instagram. She’s supposed to be starting the publicity tour for the new season of ‘True Tori’ but is in the hospital. Her cryptic caption for the pic indicates one thing, while sources tell TMZ something quite different. RELATED: Tori Spelling meets with Dean McDermott’s ex-wife, Mary Jo Eustace, in ‘True Tori 2.’

Tori posted the pic with this caption:

This sick in hospital I finally see how quickly life can take it all away frm you. We all need 2 step up frm inside& go 4 it! W/our friends by our side. Sadly I’ve finally faced truth that 1 person will never be there 4 me #TrueTori

Who could that person be? Dean McDermott? Her mother, Candy Spelling? Who knows? Meanwhile, sources are telling TMZ that what’s going on with Tori isn’t physical at all: they’re saying this is all mental, as in “nervous breakdown” mental.

Our sources tell TMZ … it all came to a head when Tori checked herself into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center over the weekend. We’re told her “Ebola scare” was all a ruse … “a lie” to cover up what we’re told is her crumbling personal life.

So what are the problems? Here’s the list:

  1. Tori and Dean are still experiencing marital problems.
  2. The couple are “financially strapped if not broke.” We’ve heard this one before.
  3. Tori started out faking illnesses but has actually managed to make herself sick in the process.

A friend told TMZ that s/he wanted to stage an “intervention” for Tori so that she will makes some changes in her life.

Hmmm… on one hand, I wouldn’t be surprised if things are stressful enough at home that Tori is struggling. She’s been open about their financial struggles, and the reality of the situation is that they probably don’t make enough to support the lifestyle she really wants, especially with FOUR kids. The idea that she and Dean could still be having marital problems isn’t exactly surprising.

Yet the cynical side of me can’t help but notice this is a far more effective publicity campaign than a round of interviews. Note that Tori hash tagged her Instagram pic #TrueTori. Could all of this be a bid to ensure we tune in for the new season? Maybe I’m getting too jaded, but I could see that. It’s compelling, right?

Well, I hope Tori’s taking care of herself. Nothing is worth compromising your health! Will you be tuning in to the new season of ‘True Tori’ to see what’s going on?

Chrissy Teigen receives death threats, quits Twitter over Ottawa shooting tweet

Chrissy Teigen

Here’s a photo of Chrissy Teigen last night at the FGI Night of Stars event in NYC. She looked gorgeous in hot pink; she won’t be tweeting about the evening after the abuse she’s suffered on Twitter. Chrissy isn’t a stranger to controversy on Twitter. She loves to troll the trolls, and she’s very skilled at throwing shade back in their faces. Is that a skill? Sure it is. Some people find Chrissy abrasive, but she’s fun to follow. She’s definitely not the typical stuck-up, showbiz kind of tweeter. She engages with people and “follows back” a lot more than other celebrities. Plus she mostly tweets mundane things instead of simply pushing a PR agenda.

Chrissy’s tenure on Twitter took a turn for the worse when she made an innocuous comment on Wednesday after the Ottawa shootings. She wasn’t commenting upon the incident itself or on Canada. Chrissy’s comment, “active shooting in Canada, or as we call it in america, wednesday,” was a remark on US gun culture. The tweet was misinterpreted by many, and the fallout has been severe. For over 24 hours, Chrissy received death threats and other abuse. Here’s an abbreviated version of what happened:

(1) Active shooting in Canada, or as we call it in america, wednesday

(2) That’s not a joke. It is a fact.

(3) Sorry you don’t understand that is a knock at america and our issues with gun control. No one is minimizing the Ottawa shooting.

(4) I’m not apologizing. If you take it wrong, that is your fault.

(5) For some reason, Canadians think I am saying they have a lot of shootings. I am not saying that. Sigh.

(6) I’ve lost faith in this world. Sorry if it comes off as being unemotional. There is just so much bad.

(7) 90% of my mentions. RT “you should probably stick to having your picture taken for a living.”

(8) And this is where @twitter needs to step their game up. RT “You f—ing c—. You’ll get yours soon enough.” RT “Wish ISIS would give Chrissy a permanent haircut.”

(9) Yikes. RT “So, how much of an stupid bitch are you?”

(10) my timeline is a nice mix of toast talk and death threats

(11) I can’t see anything through the sea of hate and anger that is now my Twitter. Seriously I can’t sift through it all.

(12) It’s gotten to the point people don’t even see he simplicity of the original tweet and have just wanted to get shaking-mad over something

(13) Amazing this isn’t punishable. RT “@f—— I hope someone murders some you love, like your f—– husband”

(14) I feel sick. Bye Twitter. Taking my talents to instagram.

[From Chrissy Teigen on Twitter]

I don’t blame Chrissy for taking a step back from Twitter. Hopefully, she hasn’t quit for good. She needs a break, and Twitter needs to take these threats seriously. They allow abuse like this to happen all the time. I’ve had friends report similar threats, and Twitter acts like it isn’t their problem until enough people report a certain user. That’s a major issue. All it takes is one crazy person to carry out a threat.

Forbes says that Twitter generates over $1 billion in ad revenue per year. They should have no problem devoting the funds to investigate abusive tweets like this. If it takes celebrities quitting Twitter to spur them into action, so be it.

Did Toni Garrn dump Leonardo DiCaprio after he partied with Robin Thicke?

FFN_GTRES_Dicaprio_Garnn_EXC_081513_51180975

I think even 22-year-old models have the limits when it comes to douchebaggery from their steady boyfriends. So it’s no surprise to hear a rumor about Toni Garrn dumping Leonardo DiCaprio. What is a surprise is the reason given by Star Magazine: allegedly, Toni had enough of Leo’s flirting and partying. And, like, she only hit her limit this month?! Leo climbed into a vat of liquor, club girls and cheese fries like six months ago and Toni is only NOW questioning his fidelity?!

Here’s a sentence people probably never thought they would read: Leonardo DiCaprio has been dumped. Leo, who has been dating German model Toni Garrn since May 2013, has found himself single after the blonde got tired of him refusing to commit. Toni, 22, confronted Leo after he was spotted partying with Robin Thicke at 1Oak in LA on October 10.

“Leo acted like he was single,” spills an eyewitness. “He partied it up with a table full of women.” When Toni questioned whether his wild antics will ever end, Leo told her he’s not ready to settle down.

“Leo’s just not interested in getting married,” explains a friend. Indeed, Leo’s past relationships all seem to have a similar expiration date. With the exceptions of Gisele Bundchen and Bar Refaeli, who both dated Leo for several years, all his former flings start to fizzle out once they hit the year-and-a-half mark.

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Again, it wouldn’t surprise me if they were over. It wouldn’t surprise me if Toni did the dumping. But let’s not fool ourselves. Toni knew the deal. No commitment, no talk of marriage and no expectations that Leo would stay faithful. Leo’s motto is “out of sight, out of mind.” He’s partying his way through Europe, Miami, Brazil and more for most of the year and Toni has only been with him for part of that journey. But whatever. Sure, let’s blame it all on Robin Thicke. Why not?

Bristol Palin blogs about the Palin Brawl, blames ‘media hypocrisy’ for everything

wenn4109853

For the love of God. You know how the Palin Family had a huge, drunken, messy brawl in Wasilla back in September? Yeah, we’re still talking about it. I should say – the details of who started what part of the brawl are still sketchy. The anti-Palin people say that the Palin kids were drunk and they were punching people like crazy. The Palins claim that they were attacked and were merely defending themselves. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, where everyone involved made crappy decisions. This week, Bristol Palin’s tearful on-site police interview was released (beware: very NSFW language).

She sounded genuinely traumatized. Alternate opinion: this sounds like a drunk person recounting a drunken brawl, which is something you can hear during every single episode of Cops. Alternate alternate opinion: if this brawl had involved black people, the police involvement would have been MUCH different. Anyway, with the release of this audio, the conservative media is now rallying around their favorite Palin women. And now Bristol Palin is finally telling her side of the story too, only she’s bathing the story in a heavy dose of politics, hypocrisy and stupidity. Bristol’s blog post is called “The Truth about the ‘Palin Brawl’ – The Media Reveals Its Bias Against Conservative Women Once Again.” I’m posting most of it (there are some edits, FYI):

First, the media said Trig was not really my mom’s kid. Then, they claimed my mom said “I can see Russia from my house.” Recently, they said my parents are giving a divorce. And now, they’re saying my family started a “drunken brawl.” Most of the time, I let the lies pass. After all, the truth eventually comes out. But when people are selling “scoop,” photos, and false information… sometimes the truth just isn’t as profitable. Let me tell you what actually happened.

Our friend got knocked out from a cheap shot from behind. (His injury resulted in ten stitches, so it was really low.) Why would anyone do this? Well, here’s a hint. The guy was on social media during this incident, tweeting, “about to get famous.” When Willow saw all this happening she looked at the guy’s mom and said “get ahold of your son.” But apparently the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree, because his mom pushed Willow. A grown woman pushed my little sister. By this point, I’d already gotten into the car. But when Willow ran to me crying, telling me that some lady had pushed her down, I got out of the car to go talk to her. Any big sister would do this. Next to God, family is the most important thing to me… But the evening that began so well took a turn for the worse when this guy decided he wanted to “get famous.”

After I got out of the car, I didn’t get far. I never even got to talk to his mom, because a guy in his late thirties or early forties got in my face. He was towering over me – probably at 6 foot something and over 200 pounds. He puffed his chest out and started yelling. “You c-nt!” he looked right in my eyes and said. “Get the f-ck out of here, you slut!”

I was alarmed that things had gotten so bad so fast. But it got even worse when this guy started pushing me. He had his hands on me, pushing me down. That’s when I swung and hit his face. Some would say I should’ve never retaliated in defense against him, but certainly he should never have pushed a girl. It didn’t phase him. He pushed me down to the ground and kept me there. It was scary and awful. He held me down until someone got me out of the situation. That’s it – that’s the story. I didn’t “swing and hit him seven times with a strong right hook” as so many so-called news stories have reported. After this incident, I still had a perfect manicure on all ten of my nails. Plus – I’m left handed. I wouldn’t even begin to know how to begin “swinging” at someone.

In the meantime, did you even hear about Vice President Joe Biden’s adult son who kicked out of the Navy for cocaine? (That’s the real Vice President’s kid…) So pause for a moment and consider the hysteria over our stupid “incident”, compared to our actual Vice President’s son not even being able to hold on to a position in the Navy Reserve. I’m sure you heard the happy news that Chelsea Clinton had a baby. But did you know her father-in-law and Clinton family pal Edward Mezvinsky is a convicted felon because of committing bank, wire, and mail fraud? Of course, you didn’t. Because the friends and family of the revered liberal elite are treated like delicate China. Don’t handle too roughly. They are precious. They are off limits. Don’t push on them too hard.

In the meantime, I was pushed and held down by some guy… and the media salivates like a dog that’s just been given a bone. Here’s the thing. Violence against women is never okay… Even if that violence occurs against conservative women. Imagine for a second the outrage that would happen if Chelsea Clinton had gotten pushed by some guy. Had she tried to defend herself, the liberal media would’ve held her up as some feminist hero. But it wasn’t Chelsea. It wasn’t Hillary. It wasn’t someone they liked or someone they agreed with. It was a conservative. And once again, the hypocrisy of the media is laid bare.

[From Bristol’s blog]

To defend the media reporting on what happened – everyone went with the sources they had. There were Palin-friendly sources telling their side, but for the most part, the majority of “sources” had the Palins pulling up to the snowmobile party in a stretch Hummer and instigating the fight almost immediately. The Palins didn’t directly confirm or deny anything until now. I don’t understand why the media should have ignored their sources just because Palins Are Always Perfect And Nothing Is Ever Their Fault?

As for Bristol specifically and her actions… so a guy assaulted her and she assaulted him right back. That’s her story. We’ve heard different versions, including versions that Bristol threw the first punch out of nowhere. Unless someone has video, we really won’t know for sure. But here’s what I do know: Bristol has a history of painting herself as a victim and denying her own actions. She’s a Perpetual Victim, she constantly plays that card (it’s a family trait).

And yes, Bristol, we did know that Chelsea Clinton’s father-in-law was in jail and we knew Joe Biden’s son snorted all the coke. Every media outlet reported on it. That’s why you were able to link to those stories on media sites.

Tori Spelling posts sad hospital bed pic, implies Dean won’t visit: truth?

Tori Spelling

I didn’t envision writing about Tori Spelling two days in a row. This may be overkill, but the second season of True Tori is in full gear. Tori’s pulling out all the stops lately. She lunched with Dean McDermott’s ex-wife. She bragged about sleeping with Dean the first day they met (even though they were both married to other people). Tori has taken a brief break from her homelife, however, as she’s been hospitalized for pneumonia-like symptoms.

Tori’s been Instagramming from her hospital bed. I believe she’s sick but fully expect this ordeal to be documented. Tori has indeed suffered various medical ailments over the years. I’m not accusing her of faking a hospital visit. She is bringing the drama though. She captioned the above photo as follows: “This sick in hospital I finally see how quickly life can take it all away frm you. We all need 2 step up frm inside& go 4 it! W/our friends by our side. Sadly I’ve finally faced truth that 1 person will never be there 4 me #TrueTori

We’re supposed to believe that Dean is the person who won’t visit Tori because he’s the big bad cheater. If Tori is talking about Dean, then I wouldn’t blame him for not dragging their four kids to the hospital. Tori’s team put out word that her doctors suspect Enterovirus. She’s supposedly under quarantine. Tori knows what she’s doing — she will milk her marital drama as much as possible. There IS a comment on this photo that simply reads “LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR.” Not everyone buys Tori’s sTories.

Dean probably isn’t the culprit. Candy Spelling is far more likely to not visit Tori in the hospital. Candy and Tori have well-documented tension. This week’s issue of Life & Style has a story about how Candy is now best friends with Tatum O’Neal. Tatum now sees Candy as a “real mother figure,” and Tori is jealous. Yep.

Oh, and Dean fully feels the pressure over his negative rep. He spoke with ET Canada about seeing his own face on tabloid covers: “You know, when you’re at the checkout and you look over and you see one of these magazines and it’s like, ‘Dean McDermott’s a monster,’ I’m not a monster, I’m a human being and I messed up I’m owning up to it and I’m getting help. To label me a monster or evil is very hurtful … You know, I’m not the first person to ever cheat on his wife.” Dean’s correct — he’s not the first guy (or gal) to cheat. He may want to talk to Tori about feeding all their dirty laundry to the press.

Celebs defend Renee Zellweger: is it ‘mean’ to point out that she looks way different?

reneeba
As you know by now, Renee Zellweger had some major work done about a year ago. She emerged at an event this weekend looking much different than we’re used to, and so people naturally noticed. Renee commented on her changed appearance and she made it worse, in my opinion. Renee decried the “folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth” and she attributed her new look to aging and “living a different, happy, more fulfilling life.” Buried in a lot of BS, there was a hint that maybe she’d visited a dermatologist/surgeon. She said “I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion,” which to me sounds like she had something done and regrets it. That’s all she said about it, though.

Now celebrities have weighed in on Renee, and they’re saying “leave her alone” pretty much. Which… I mean that’s the response to a lot of a gossip stories. E! Online has more, and credit to them for this story idea:

Today show co-host Kathie Lee Gifford defended the actress Wednesday morning on-air. “Let her be and don’t be so mean spirited about her choices,” she explained. “I think she looks beautiful.”

The View co-host Nicole Wallace also thinks the chatter can open up a whole separate conversation on women and beauty. “I think the reality is that there is an unending pressure on women to look forever young,” she shared.

[From E! Online]

E! also posted some tweets from celebrities about Renee’s change and I’m cribbing a few of them here:

Of course Renee can do whatever she wants, and I think she looks beautiful now as she did before. In fact I did say that she looked beautiful in our last story, just nothing like herself. It’s human nature to notice when someone’s appearance changes so much they’re barely recognizable. There are a small minority of people (trolls) who are being nasty about it, but that’s not the larger conversation. If an acquaintance did this in my small town, you could bet that my friends and neighbors would be talking about it. And if that acquaintance told everyone she got an eye or face lift, it’s likely that the gossip would die down and we would be like “good for her.” Renee is famous and people have noticed that she doesn’t look like herself. I think that’s par for the course and I don’t find it sexist or mean spirited, but I gossip for a living. My standards differ from the average person.

There’s a bigger conversation about the pressure women feel about aging in our society, and how that leads many of us to have surgery and injectibles. It’s still a choice that people make, and it’s something that can be done subtly as well. I’m personally not ruling it out, but that doesn’t mean I don’t find it scary.

Kim Kardashian: North West ‘will have to work for what she wants’

kim ES Mag

This ^^ is the new cover of The Standard’s ES Magazine. That’s Kim Kardashian. It’s a terrible cover, I know, and that oversaturated red makes my eyes hurt. I have good quotes from the magazine, but first: where in the world are Kim and Kanye? As it turns out, Kanye planned a “surprise getaway” for Kim’s 34th birthday. He took her to Maui! That’s actually really sweet. I wonder if North was invited though? Hm. Here’s how Kanye celebrated Kim’s b-day (it was on Tuesday) on Twitter:

Call me a Yeezington apologist, but I think he genuinely loves her. I know, I know. I’m a big softie. I’m not saying he wouldn’t yell at her if she was in a wheelchair, I’m just saying… he seems to adore her. Anyway, as for those ES Magazine quotes… Kim talked about how North wasn’t going to be super-spoiled and she would grow up working for what she wants:

Kim Kardashian says her daughter North will have to find a job and pay her own way when she is older — just like she did. The reality TV star, who is married to rapper Kanye West, says despite her family’s wealth she worked at a clothes shop when she was at school. Kardashian, 34, said she used to save up her wages for treats and would like her daughter to “work for what she wants” too.

In an interview with ES Magazine, to be published in full tomorrow, she said: “I saved up for this Dolce & Gabbana dress I really wanted, or like in high school these Prada shoes that my parents wouldn’t buy me. And I remember they were $400, and I had to save for the entire year to get them … We didn’t get anything [from her parents], we had to get a job if we wanted it. So I was working in a clothing store and I would save and save.”

She added: “I was saying that earlier to my friends, ‘I wonder what [North’s] first job is gonna be’. And they were like, ‘What? She’s gonna have a job?’ and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Of course she is’. She will have to work for what she wants.”

North, who is 16 months old, has already started modelling for Vogue and CR Fashion Book. Last month she was on the front row of Paris Fashion Week with her parents. Asked what she thought North might do when she is older, Kardashian replied: “I don’t know. She loves fashion. Maybe she’ll be a designer. Who knows? It’s too early to tell.”

Kardashian said North also likes her father’s music, which she said she uses to rock her to sleep. She added: “The best is when Kanye’s recording in the home and we’re in Mexico or whatever. And the music will be upstairs and she’ll hear it, and it’s really loud and you’d think it would disturb her, but I just kind of rock her to it, and she’ll just pass out.”

[From The Standard]

My Kardashian-to-English Translator interprets Kim’s remarks as “Lucifer’s Homegirl is going to pimp out the little one as soon as possible.” While I think Kim’s version of “work” is very different than mine, yours and everyone else’s, in a larger sense… yeah, I guess we could describe her as a self-made woman. I do think that much of Kardashian Empire was built by Lucifer’s Homegirl though, not Kim. Kim wouldn’t be where she is now without the pimp hand guiding her every move. Will Nori be the same?

Renee Zellweger Explains Changing Face: It’s Because I’m So Happy!

Yesterday, photos of Renee Zelwegger looking very different from how we remember her made the rounds online, and it’s easy to see why.

This wasn’t a simple case of dramatic weight loss or Botox gone wrong. The former rom-com queen legitimately looked like a different person.

Concerned Zellweger fans clamored for an explanation: Had Renee simply had a lot of work done? Is there some issue with her health? 

Renee Zellweger Then and Now


Renee Zellweger in 2004 and 2014. Yes, that is actually the same person.

In an effort to put minds at ease, the actress gave an interview with People magazine yesterday, and only ended up raising even more questions:

“I’m glad folks think I look different!” Renee said, perplexingly. “I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows.”

Well, she is certainly living a different lifestyle these days. For one, the 45-year-old hasn’t appeared in any movie that we know of since 2010.

At the height of her fame, Renee dated Bradley Cooper, and a slew of other A-listers. Her tumultuous relationships with Jack White and Kenny Chesney made tabloid headlines.

These days, Renee steers clear of Hollywood and drama and has been quietly dating her old college boyfriend Doyle Bramhall for about two years.

“My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy,” Renee adds.

“For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that…Perhaps I look different. Who doesn’t as they get older? But I am different. I am happy.”

Probably not the answer that most fans were expecting when they saw the photos, but we’re guessing that’s as specific as Renee is going to get.

Who knew that happiness could have such a profound effect on someone’s appearance? We wonder if these other celebrities feel the same way …

Heidi Montag Boob Job!


The queen of plastic surgery. It’s shocking how different Heidi Montag used to look and how badly this obsession turned out for her.

Renee Zellweger attributes her new look to a ‘fulfilling life’: disingenuous?

wenn21847128

About a year ago, Renee Zellweger had significant, noticeable work done to her face. She’d obviously had some kind of eye lift, which may have been medically necessary. Some of you commented at the time that she may have needed the surgery to correct eyelid droopiness. Whatever the reason, you could definitely see the difference in her face. Here’s a before and after photo we posted at the time.

reneez

Renee laid low for about a year. We saw the occasional photo of her out with her boyfriend (a musician and old college friend named Doyle Bramhall II, they’ve been together around two years now) and she would attend a rare event, but she stayed under the radar. Then Renee went to the Elle Women in Hollywood event over the weekend. Everyone was like “woah she looks like a different person.” Instead of admitting to doing something to change her appearance, Renee told People that she’s happy and more fulfilled and we must be noticing that.

“I’m glad folks think I look different! I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows,” Zellweger, 45, says of the attention she received after an appearance at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills on Monday.

Calling the conversation about her appearance “silly,” she says she is choosing to address it because “it seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth which doesn’t exist won’t get off my porch until I answer the door.”

“My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy,” Zellweger continues. “For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn’t allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.”

That healthier, slower-paced lifestyle – and her happy relationship with boyfriend Doyle Bramhall – helped her turn a corner. “I did work that allows for being still, making a home, loving someone, learning new things, growing as a creative person and finally growing into myself,” she says.

“People don’t know me in my 40s,” says Zellweger, who prefers to lead a quiet life with Bramhall and a close circle of friends. Recently, she pitched in to help her pal and longtime publicist, Nanci Ryder, who is battling ALS, at the ALS Association Golden West Chapter’s annual Walk to Defeat ALS in Los Angeles.

“People don’t know me [as] healthy for a while,” says Zellweger. “Perhaps I look different. Who doesn’t as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I’m happy.”

[From People]

Renee did lose weight in the past few months, and that contributes to her face looking thinner, but give me a break. People aren’t “digging around for some nefarious truth,” they’re noticing that she looks nothing like herself. This is a Jennifer Grey level of plastic surgery change.

I like Zellweger so I’m not going to parse her defensive word salad too much, but she sounds like Ashley Judd here. “Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion.” Is she referring to a visit a dermatologist as a “bad choice”? Is that a vague hint? Renee is a very private person, but if she would have admitted that she had something done, maybe that it was medically necessary, she would sound more genuine. She could remain vague and say she’s not ready to get into specifics. Instead, it’s all everyone else’s fault for noticing and Renee has gotten older and taken time to “recalibrate,” resulting in her eyes magically changing shape. I’m disappointed. It’s great that she’s in a good place now, though. She seems happy with her boyfriend with the giant ‘fro.

Here are comparison photos of Renee. This isn’t from weight loss. It’s a shame because she was beautiful. She still is, she’s just much different looking.

Jill Duggar’s Walmart baby registry includes Gatorade, Purell: makes sense?

jill3

Confession: my town is really Jesus-y. I’m surrounded by Southern Baptists and I’m sort of fine with it. My new neighbors are this young Duggar-esque Baptist family with like four kids under the age of five. Last Christmas, I gave all of the kids holiday M&M packages and they were thrilled. This is my thought process: I probably don’t agree with any of their beliefs, but they make for great neighbors.

Anyway, since I’m surrounded by Southern Baptists, I spend too much time thinking about how professional religious people make a living. It’s actually pretty easy – Professional Christianity is a growth industry. There are books/publishing, lecture circuits, religious schools (nursery, K-12, college, graduate schools can all have religious affiliations), reality shows, Christian entertainment, plus the old stand-by: actually being employed by a church. I know the Duggar Family has a reality show, but with so many kids, that’s probably not the extent of their income. I would imagine that someone like Jill Duggar is also giving paid speeches, being paid to endorse certain campaigns or products, plus she probably has some other revenue streams (she’s studying to be a midwife). My point is that… I doubt Jill Duggar is rich, but she’s probably got enough money where she doesn’t need to do the baby registry at Walmart. And she definitely doesn’t have to include Gatorade on her baby registry.

Ask and you shall receive! Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are gearing up for their first baby by registering for gifts at their local Walmart! According to their wish list, the 19 Kids and Counting stars are asking for a mix of everyday items and a few splurges.

For example, the couple requests Purell hand sanitizer, Bounty paper towels, Arm & Hammer detergent, Boudreaux’s butt paste and even an eight-pack of orange flavored Gatorade. Hey, new moms need replenishing too. There are also several items friends and family can purchase at a higher price. The couple’s most expensive item is a $199 stroller followed by a newborn napper station at $159. As of Tuesday afternoon, already 64 gifts have been purchased as the couple eagerly waits for the March 24, 2015 due date.

“We are so excited for this new little blessing and look forward to the arrival of ‘Baby Dilly’ in March 2015,” the couple wrote on the registry. The TLC reality stars recently learned their firstborn will be a handsome boy. They discovered the news during a gender-revealing ultrasound Saturday.

“Oh yes, there was some screaming in the room,” Jill recalled to People magazine. “I thought all along we were having a girl. Everyone made their guesses.” Before the ultrasound, Derick admitted that he “was praying for a big, healthy baby.”

In the meantime, the happy couple is simply enjoying their pregnancy journey and not thinking too much about the baby’s name.

“We are not going to do a letter theme,” Jill shared. “But we may do some kind of theme, like family names.” And get ready, folks. This is likely the first of many kids for the happy family. “I have loved having lots of brothers and sisters and although Derick comes from a family with just one brother, both of us would love to have as many children as God will give us,” Jill shared with Page Six. Congrats to the happy couple. Now let’s start shopping!

How common is it to put stuff like Gatorade and Purell on your baby registry? I really don’t know – I’ve never looked at a Walmart baby registry before today (I live a sheltered life, I know). If I was buying the gifts (and I AM NOT), I would just get them a gift certificate to Walmart and let them go wild with all of the Gatorade they could ever want (for the baby, obvs). Also: Walmart sells guns and I’m absolutely shocked that there are no weapons on the baby registry. You would think that a Duggar would have insisted on baby’s first shotgun.
