Joan Rivers is so old and out of touch now that the only way she can stay relevant is by continuing to offend people under the guise of “comedy” – with the funniest part being that no one’s laughing. I’m all for dark humour, observational humour that can be offensive, etc, but Joan Rivers just talks shit that’s so outlandish, it can’t even be poorly disguised as a joke.
Her latest foray into the world of tastelessness (I know, I know – she’s the president there) was in saying that the two women who escaped from the Cleveland house they were abused and held captive in last year should “lighten up” because, you know, free rent and all that. LOL?
The women are pissed at Joan’s comments on the “Today” show this week … when she talked about her daughter’s guest room, saying “Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space.”
The women — Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus — came out swinging, saying they were shocked and disappointed at the “hurtful” comment.
Joan tells us she WON’T apologize, telling them to lighten up, adding, “One of them has a book deal. Neither are in a psych ward. They’re ok. I bet you within 3 years one of them will be on Dancing with the Stars.”
And Joan says, plenty of comedians have done schtick about tragic events like Hitler’s terror and the sinking of the Titanic. Joan says, “The TV the guy gave them must not have had SNL.”
Jesus Christ. What a disgusting human being.

Amanda Bynes had her driver’s license revoked sometime in the last couple of years in the midst of all the trouble she was having, but things are on the upswing as she’s got it back and now she can hit the road again!
In another sign she’s on the road to recovery, Amanda Bynes is legally allowed to drive again, DMV records show.
Bynes, 28, whose license was suspended after two hit-and-run charges and a DUI arrest in 2012, was spotted driving a black BMW with her father last Sunday around Los Angeles.
Two weeks ago, Bynes’s attorney Tamar Arminak said the actress-turned-fashion-student is currently free of any medication, although she remains in outpatient treatment.
Glad to hear she’s taking another step forward, for sure. She’s off her meds, though, so let’s hope she stays on that path and keeps getting better!

The world’s most awful Nazi sympathizer, Tila Tequila, announced her pregnancy online last week, and while she’s a hot fucking mess who has no business raising a child, she still insists this whole thing is a blessing and is the life-saving experience she needed.
“It has been quite a painful journey for me, and I never thought I was going to make it out alive. So to be able to do a total 180 and finally be blessed with my first child gets me so emotional that I can barely even handle it,” she continues. “The only difference is that now these tears I cry are of joy, and no longer of sadness.”
The first-time mom-to-be adds that she feels “finally healed” after “so many traumatic years” in the spotlight. “I truly feel that my baby has saved my life, and I will do whatever it takes to give my little baby the whole entire world!” she vows. “I know I’m going to cry so much when the baby is finally born later this year.”
“I never knew such a love like this could exist, but I guess motherhood can truly change some people,” she tells Us of her future son or daughter. “I know it has definitely changed me, and I’m already thinking about having more. I just want my baby to be proud of me and to know how much I love him or her. To love someone else unconditionally is one of the best feelings in the entire world, and I hope I will have plenty more pregnancies to come.”
Let’s be honest – the only thing she’s “changed” by so far is probably weird cravings for ice cream and pickles or whatever. Sorry, but I’m not buying this bullshit. She just found out she’s pregnant and suddenly she’s an entirely different person? If I didn’t already know what a fucking nutterball she is, I’d feel like I was the one taking crazy pills here. I’d almost rather Lindsay Lohan have a baby over her!

If you bought Beyoncé‘s self-titled album when she dropped it late last year, then you’ve already seen this video as part of the visual element of the album. For the rest of you, this will be something new and potentially inspiring.
In ‘Pretty Hurts’, Bey sings about the difficulties of being a woman with the expectation of being perfect all the time – which of course is easy to say coming from someone who a) is playing the game and b) was blessed with obscenely good looks from birth anyway. Still, it’s worth applauding her for the effort, I suppose, and I do love me some Queen Bey, so there’s that.

2014 is certainly shaping up to be Lupita Nyong’o‘s year, and thank goodness for that – she’s divine! She’s already won an Oscar and signed on as the new face of Lancôme, and now she’s got another honour: she’s People’s Most Beautiful Woman!
Though she grew up thinking that “light skin and flowing, straight hair” made women desirable, World’s Most Beautiful Woman Nyong’o, 31, tells PEOPLE that her mother “always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point.” The Oscar winner, who’s now a face of Lancôme Paris, is excited for this honor in part because of “all the girls who would see me … and feel a little more seen.”
Good for her! Even though this whole feature is cornball city and only furthers the idea that ladies need to be physically attractive, yada yada. But that’s a tale as old as time, so let’s just embrace this, I suppose. Also, let’s appreciate that Pink is on this list, as is Kerry Washington. Some of the other choices are a bit… incorrect, but whatever.

Olivia Wilde has been feeling like a goddess throughout her pregnancy and seems to have had a somewhat easy time of it, so she’s probably a little bummed that she’s now fetus-free and her son has been born!
Olivia and Jason Sudeikis welcomed little Otis Alexander on Wednesday, and as you do, she immediately hopped on Twitter to announce it and share a snapshot.
Ladies and gentlemen, Otis Alexander Sudeikis has LEFT the building! (I'm the building) pic.twitter.com/uHfY3adroc
