Ricki Lake has filed for divorce

ricki lake christian evans

Ricki Lake and Christian Evans seemed like a pretty okay couple, from what little I knew about them. However, everything wasn’t all that great in their marriage, apparently, since they only got married in April 2012 and now they’re getting divorced already. Yikes.

From People:

The 47-year-old former talk show host separated from Evans, 42, on Oct. 9, and filed for divorce a week later, according to court filings in Los Angeles. She is expected to pay Evans spousal support.

Lake, the mom of two boys Milo, 17, and Owen, 13, told PEOPLE in 2011 that she began dating Evans, a jewelry designer, during the summer of 2010. At the time, she described him as a “normal guy. We met through my best friend. He’s a nobody but he’s somebody to me. He’s everything to me.”

Huh, for things to go south so quickly, you’d think something big went on here – infidelity, perhaps, or something similar, but who knows? Either way, hopefully Ricki can find happiness again soon… and yes, I’m actually being sincere. What can I say? You caught me on a nice day.

‘Bachelor’ Juan Pablo Galavis is a major dickhead

nikki ferrell juan pablo galavis

Hey, here’s something that won’t surprise you at all: former ‘BachelorJuan Pablo Galavis is – in addition to being a homophobic misogynist – a total asshole who uses women to promote himself. That’s according to “sources” close to Nikki Ferrell, the “winner” of his season who received a declaration of “like” at the finale and went on to experience months of pure torture before kicking him to the curb.

“The main reason Juan stayed with Nikki was to spite all the haters who thought they would break up, and to stay relevant so he could promote himself,” the insider tells Us. “Juan wants to be a soccer or baseball commentator, and also a manager for high-profile Latin athletes.”

Pediatric nurse Ferrell, on the other hand, seems to have been legitimately invested in their romance — but when he wouldn’t meet her halfway, she initiated the breakup. “Juan did say ‘I love you’ to Nikki, but only a couple of times,” the source explains of Ferrell, 28. “She wanted [him] to say it every time they spoke, and he couldn’t do that.”

Indeed, a second insider shared that the two had conflicting visions of their future together. “Everything Nikki wanted, he didn’t,” the source previously told Us. “She wanted to settle down and he didn’t.”

Geography was an issue, too. “They were not seeing eye to eye on anything,” a third source said earlier this week. “Juan wanted Nikki in Miami. Nikki didn’t want to leave her family, friends, or job. Meanwhile, Juan wouldn’t even consider going to Kansas…She couldn’t get him to compromise at all.”

None of this is surprising at all. He didn’t love her; the only thing Juan Pablo loves is himself. And his desperation to be somebody – anybody- big in the sports world is hilarious. Not happening, bro. You’d actually have to work hard to accomplish something like that rather than throwing pool parties in Vegas and going on dating reality shows.

Nikki seems nice, though, and it’s good she got away. She deserves a medal for staying with him as long as she did.

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.

miley MAC

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?
