JWOWW
How She Found Out She Was Pregnant

JWOWWI think everyone was a little surprised when Jenni “Jwoww” Farley announced her pregnancy late last year (the pic here is from her instagram) …but I don’t think you could ever guess how ridiculousness the process of knowing or not knowing was for the reality star!

Jenni revealed on her blog how she actually found out she was pregnant…

The following day I met Nicole (Snooki) at the airport and I was so anxious because I didn’t know about the pregnancy do’s and don’t’s and wasn’t sure if it was okay for me to fly. While we were at the airport, Nicole and I were going through all the usual magazines making fun of people in them and when I went to the bathroom, I saw blood and panicked. So many thoughts were running through my head. I felt a loss like no other when I thought that I was no longer pregnant. I whispered it to Roger (Mathews, JWoww’s fiance) and for that whole ride we just stared straight ahead and didn’t say a word. I went to bed that night in Nashville praying it was just a thing that happens.The following day I told my manager to buy a “stupid proof test” which literally says “pregnant” or “not pregnant.” It said pregnant and she cried and I cried and Roger looked like he was going to pass out! Hahaha. That day in Nashville I was on cloud nine.”

She’ll be updating her blog next week with an update on how the pregnancy is going, and hopefully she’ll do a little more reading about what she can/cannot do while pregnant (she was nervous about flying on a plane)! Oy!

EMILY MAYNARD
Engaged to TYLER JOHNSON!

EMILYCOLLAGE

Emily Maynard is engaged…again! The two-time Bachelorette alum is engaged to marry boyfriend Tyler Johnson, she confirms to Us Weekly.

Management consultant Johnson, 27, proposed on Jan. 4 with not one, not two, but five diamond-studded bands. “I’ve had enough engagement rings!” the bride-to-be quips. (She was previously engaged to the late Ricky Hendrick, Bachelor Brad Womack, and Bachelorette winner Jef Holm.)

“We’re really excited!!” the mother of one (to daughter Ricki, 8) tells Us. “He proposed to me at home and gave both Ricki and me rings. It was so sweet! Ricki loves him more than she likes me!”

The couple actually met a couple months before Maynard  filmed The Bachelorette, but they didn’t become romantically involved until after her split from winner Jef Holm. Now that they’re engaged, they do not want to waste any time! I wouldn’t either, if I had been engaged three times before.  Wishing good karma to Emily!  I always thought she was sweet on The Bachelorette…

BRODY JENNER
Brody Admits Tension With Kris Jenner Was Real

brody jenner (1)

If you watch ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians,’ then you’ve seen that Brody Jenner and Kris Jenner aren’t exactly close. Brody admitted to the New York Daily News’ Confidenti@l that the tension between them wasn’t manufactured for the show.

“The tension was real as far as growing up not knowing her intentions, who she is, there was obviously just drama between the family and parents.”

However, Brody says things are better between him and Kris.

“Kris and I have had some very deep, long conversations, and we actually really got to know each other, and so we’re all good now.”

I wonder if any of this also has to do with Kris and Bruce’s split? That’s purely speculation on my part, but Brody actually spent most of the interview talking about how well his father is doing now that he’s no longer with Kris.

“He seems like he is doing great,” Brody told us. “Seems like better than ever … growing his hair out, and he has a ponytail.”

Good for Bruce! I wonder if he and Kris will ever formally divorce? Their personal and business lives are so entertwined, that could get really messy.

KIM KARDASHIAN
Are The Kardashians Fading?

The NY Post seems thrilled to pronounce the imminent downfall of the Kardashian clan. The Post is basing this claim on two troubling things: sinking TV ratings for their reality TV show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ and the fact that magazines with Kardashians on the cover aren’t selling like they used to. A magazine publisher told the Post:

“It’s over. The fatigue factor has really set in. None of the Kardashians, either alone or together, is selling.”

Us Weekly reportedly paid $110,000 to re-touch the cover of Kim flaunting her post-baby body in a bikini. Yet that issue sold fewer than 400,000 copies, when it normally sells about 500,000. In Touch reportedly dropped 70,000 copies from its weekly average when a Kardashian was on the cover, and Life & Style dropped by 50,000 with a Kardashian cover. Oh boy. A publisher blames the Kardashians’ downfall to Kim Kardashian’s relationship with Kanye West.

“I think it’s because Kanye West is so nasty and aggressive. People don’t like him. It’s rubbed off on Kim. It’s rubbed off on the whole family.”

That’s a surprising idea. Say what you will about Kanye, but he’s at least he’s a genuine celebrity. Another PR person had a different explanation for the Kardashian’s fading popularity.

“It’s simple — overkill. The Kardashians are everywhere. They never take a break.”

That sounds about right to me. After a while, it doesn’t matter what a celeb is doing: when we see them all the time, it feels like the same-old, same old. What do you think: will we see the Kardashians fade away in 2014?

PHIL ROBERTSON
‘Duck Dynasty’ Clan Pushes Back At A&E

wenn3872116

Have you been following the controversy surrounding A&E’s reality TV show ‘Duck Dynasty’? ‘Duck Dynasty’ follows a conservative southern family, the Robertson. The patriarch of the clan, Phil Robertson, shared his views with GQ in their January 2014 issue. He’s very religious and shared his views that homosexuality is a sin. GLAAD found his comments offensive, and A&E suspended Phil “indefinitely” from the show. Now the Robertson family has released a statement on their website.

We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.

Oh boy. I’m sure the Robertson family signed contracts, so this could get very messy, indeed. Some are arguing that Phil has the right to express his views under the First Amendment (freedom of speech). This is a tough situation. Is there a difference between saying “homosexuality goes against my religious beliefs?” and comparing homosexuality to bestiality, which Phil seemed to do in his interview? I’m guessing Phil will be back on the air, repenting for offending people while making it clear these are his beliefs. I’ve gotta ask…

PHIL ROBERTSON
‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Suspended After Anti-Gay Comments

Did you read our excerpts from ‘Duck Dynasty’ star Phil Robertson’s GQ interview? INO posted it yesterday. Turns out we weren’t the only ones surprised by some of his comments: so was A&E, the network that airs ‘Duck Dynasty.’ After GLAAD responded to Phil’s comments categorizing homosexuals with alcoholics or terrorists and likening homosexuality to bestiality, A&E suspended Phil from the show. The network released this statement:

“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

When People reached out to Phil for a comment in response to A&E’s suspension, he gave them this statement:

“My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity.”

I can’t say I blame A&E for taking this step. The cynical side of me, however, suspects he’ll be back on the show by next season. At least the message has been sent that homophobic comments, even made under the guise of “expressing personal beliefs” aren’t okay!
