Mama June’s kids are her first priority, apparently

mama june

Mama June has been rightfully coming under some serious heat since she’s split up with Sugar Bear and started hanging around with her ex-boyfriend again, who just so happens to be a child molester that sexually abused her own daughter Anna. Lovely. And while people fear for Honey Boo Boo now that McDaniel is back on the scene.

She’s denied being with McDaniel several times, but everyone knows she is – she even bought him a new car recently. But she still swears that her kids are her first priority and she’d never let anything happen to him.

From US Weekly:

No worries? Mama June gave a bizarre on-camera interview with E!, which aired on Wednesday, Oct. 29. The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star has been under fire recently after claims surfaced that she is dating registered sex offender Mark McDaniel.

The mother of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, Anna Cardwell, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, and Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon appeared unfazed throughout the interview, laughing, smiling, and throwing up the deuces sign. When asked about the loss of her hit TLC reality series, the Thompson family matriarch didn’t appear concerned, saying, “I can’t say anything bad about the show. I can’t say anything bad about TLC.”

The reporter then asked if June had been in touch with her eldest daughter Anna Cardwell, who claimed in a recent Entertainment Tonight interview that her mother’s boyfriend had molested her when she was 8 years old.

“I talk to her — I talk to all my kids,” the smiling reality star replied. “We’re all doing fine. We’re just hanging out as a family and handling it privately. The protection of my kids is my number one priority.”

I mean, this is just a hot ass mess, and that’s putting it lightly. I mean, in one sense, I get that she’s not going to come out and answer these questions with any amount of honesty. After all, how do you defend yourself against something like this? You can’t, because it’s wrong any way you slice it. What’s insane is that she’s still even agreeing to do interviews, considering. If I was that terrible of a person who was putting my kids in harm’s way (not to mention HER involvement with him, which… how could you even?) I would shut myself off from the entire rest of the world forever.

Miley Cyrus is the face of the 2015 MAC Viva Glam campaign

Miley Cyrus may not be known for her mature and unique beauty looks, but she is becoming somewhat of a pop music icon (for better or worse) and MAC Cosmetics is looking to capitalize that. They’ve announced her as the face of their 2015 Viva Glam campaign, which donates 100% of proceeds to the MAC Aids Fund.

Starting in January, MAC will begin selling Miley’s collection, which consists of a hot pink lipstick ($16) and a shimmery matching lipgloss ($19). I bet you can’t wait to get your hands on that!

While Miley isn’t particularly my idea of an icon or anything, this is a project for a great cause, so I’ll probably buy it (and I’m sure plenty of others will, as well.)

Jessica Biel is (maybe) pregnant with Justin Timberlake’s baby

People have been wondering for years when Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake were going to start procreating, and according to some reports, that time is now. Radar claims that Jessica is pregnant with the couple’s first child. Their proof? A candid photo where her top sorta blew up and she looked like she had a “baby bump”. Kewl, sounds legit.

A pal close to the 7th Heaven star revealed the exciting news after weeks of feverish speculation and baby bump sightings.

“Jessica is at least three months pregnant,” the source said. “And she’s due in April!”

A second source revealed that the actress hasn’t had it easy getting pregnant in the past.

“Jessica has had tense times in the past when it comes to having a baby, so it is not surprising that she is staying mum on confirming the news publicly yet,” the other insider said.

Huh. Well, I guess it could be possible, but given that none of the legit sites are picking this up yet, sounds like hearsay. Who knows, though – maybe she will indeed pop out a mini JT come spring. We’ll just have to wait and see!

Sarah Hyland discusses her recent breakup with abusive boyfriend

Sarah Hyland made a lucky escape from her longtime former boyfriend, Matthew Prokop, earlier this year when she broke up with him AND got a restraining order. Now, for the first time, she’s shed some light on how she got through such a tough situation, and while she never named Prokop by name, it was a poignant interview.

What a messed up situation. Abuse like that is so difficult to get out of, and it’s so good that Sarah had the resources, support and strength to make it through such a difficult experience. Here’s hoping she’s able to find some peace and safety away from that abusive asshole. Now if only he was prosecuted…

Katie Holmes is fearless now

I don’t really know what Katie Holmes ever feared in life, but whatever it was, it’s gone. She’s got no more fears! She’s ready to take on the world and whatever comes with it!

“I don’t have any fear now, I don’t have a lot of rules for myself, and I don’t take myself that seriously,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s cover story.

And when it comes to her career, “I feel ready for new challenges,” she says.

Also, she’s tired of talking about Tom Cruise and will not let her divorce from that crazy Scientologist define her for the rest of her life.

“I don’t want that moment in my life to define me, to be who I am,” she says of her post-split persona. “I don’t want that to be what I’m known as. I was an actor before, an actor during and an actor now.”

Well, you were never a very good actor, which is, I suppose, why people paid more attention to the whole relationship aspect, but you know. I don’t mind Katie Holmes – she’s about as exciting about watching paint dry, but there’s nothing wrong with her, per se. It’s good to hear she’s doing well, I suppose?

Taylor Swift is taking over the world

Taylor Swift only released her new album, 1989, on Monday, but she’s already basically killing all your favs and then some. She sold over half a million albums in under 24 hours, and considering how many people illegally downloaded it (thereby not counting in the sales), that’s AMAZING.

Definitely well deserved since, as I said the other day, it’s an EXCELLENT pop album and is already in my Top 5 albums of the year, for sure. I haven’t met a single person – TSwift fan or not – who doesn’t absolutely love it. This might be the most popular album of the year (and the only one to go platinum, since no other albums have so far).

Amanda Bynes 5150 hold extended for another month

Amanda Bynes was taken in on another 5150 hold last month after exhibiting more than her fair share of strange and possibly dangerous behaviour while in New York. While they initially extended the hold for just two weeks, it’s now been extended for another month and her parents have a conservatorship over her finances yet again.

Amanda Bynes‘ parents quietly went to court and got a conservatorship … after telling the judge their daughter has spent “alarming amounts” of money by purchasing jewelry for strangers.

Amanda’s folks filed legal docs — obtained by TMZ – in which they say Amanda is a “substantial risk” to herself and others. They cite her erratic behavior, including her DUI arrest last month, her shoplifting and her bizarre and sometimes violent conduct in NYC.

The documents also reveal Amanda is blowing through a shocking amount of her savings. Her parents say her net worth is currently $5,747,703.36. Of that, $2.8 mil is real property — homes. Her parents say Amanda’s only income is from her rental property — $144,768 last year.

Amanda’s parents say the gift purchases have been “extensive.” It sounds like she’s going into stores, buying stuff and just handing it out on the street.

The conservatorship takes a back seat to Amanda’s involuntary commitment. TMZ broke the story … her doctors just got a 30-day extension which allows them to hold her in a Pasadena psychiatric facility.

Eek, it just goes from bad to worse with this girl, doesn’t it? Unfortunately I feel like a 5150 hold is the only thing keeping Amanda safe at the moment, and frankly, if she’s hell bent on not taking her medication to control her mental illness, I don’t see her ever recovering (though I do hope she does – still rooting for her!).
