Gene Simmons has advice for us womenfolk

gene simmons

Gene Simmons is always offering his thoughts on weird topics that no one really asked him about, and he’s not about to stop anytime soon. His recent foray into telling you how to live your life is particularly aimed at the ladies among us – we need to stop depending on men so much.

From Fox News (lol):

In an interview with Andrea Tantaros Friday, Simmons went as far as to say women should assume men will abandon them and thus devote their early lives to making money to support themselves.

“This is a very complex and difficult question to answer so I’m going to put it as simply as possible. Women: Stop depending on men. It’s as simple as that. Imagine there are no men in life,” Simmons said. “Find out that thing that you’re good for that makes the money and then get married and or have children from a position of strength.”

Look, on one hand, I’m totally for part of his message (even though he wasn’t exactly aiming for the message as I’m taking it): women SHOULD be independent and strong and pursue their passions and dreams. We should all be self-sufficient and any time we find a partner, that person should make us better, NOT complete us. I’m on board with that. However, that goes for people of BOTH sexes, and to assume that women “depend” on men as a gender is kinda obnoxious and pretty ridiculous. I don’t think Gene really gets how sexism works: the system is set up to MAKE women depend on men more, but then we’re told we’re not being strong because we’re doing it. Aye carumba.

Anyhoo, I’m all about that independent jam and have never depended on a man for anything in my life, so I’m all good here… I just find it semi-ironic that a man is telling women to be independent and strong and yet… he’s a man telling a woman how to live her life. Whatever, man.

Mama June’s daughter Anna says she was molested by her mother’s boyfriend

honey boo boo

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo got cancelled earlier this week after it was revealed that since her split from Sugar Bear (who was caught trolling for ladies online, don’t forget), Mama June had hooked up with her ex, who also happened to be a convicted child molester. Mama June denied it, but TLC wasn’t taking any chances, and they put the breaks on that shit real quick. Well, now things just got a whole lot worse: her daughter Anna claims she was molested by that very boyfriend.

From Radar Online:

As Radar exclusively reported, McDaniel was indicted in June 2003 for aggravated child molestation and aggravated sexual battery on his young victim, who Radar can now reveal to be Anna. (She has given Radar her permission.)

The disgraced pervert “did then and there unlawfully perform an immoral and indecent act which did involve an act of sodomy to Anna Shannon with intent to arouse and satisfy the sexual desires of said accused and said act involving the mouth of said Anna Shannon and the sex organ of the accused,” district attorney Tommy K. Floyd wrote in Henry County, Georgia court papers obtained by Radar. The abuse occurred multiple times between October 2002 and March 2003.

Though the case was dismissed, McDaniel was later convicted on aggravated child molestation charges in another case in nearby Spalding County.

According to the Georgia Sex Offender Registry, he was sentenced to ten years in prison for his crime. He was released from Dodge State Prison on March 1, 2014.

Well, that’s lovely. Anna also insists that Mama June is indeed back with this asshole, which… what? I used to think she was given way too hard of a time and that she’s actually really intelligent and amazing and this fantastic mother who wants what’s best for her children, but if this is true, that’s clearly not the case. What’s wrong with people?

Lake Bell welcomes baby girl

lake bell

I think I only found out that Lake Bell was pregnant about a month ago (I’m behind the times?), so it was vaguely surprising to hear that she’s already given birth! Lake and husband Scott Campbell welcomed a baby girl – their first child – recently. Yep, that’s all we know so far.

The Million Dollar Arm actress has welcomed her first child, a daughter, with husband Scott Campbell, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

No other details, including a birth date or baby girl’s name, are available.

Before her rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple were expecting a baby, Bell, 35, let her belly do all the talking when she stepped out for an event in April.

Congrats to the happy couple, in any case! Try to pick a semi-normal name, guys!

Cindy Crawford’s daughter is her double

Cindy Crawford has a 13-year-old daughter named Kaia Jordan Gerber and as you can see from the above photo, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Kaia is a model herself and has already had some pretty big campaigns, and something tells me she might follow into her mom’s footsteps as a REALLY successful model within the next 5-10 years.

Cindy and husband Rande Gerber also have a 15-year-old son named Presley Walker, who is also pretty handsome and could easily be a model:

Nick Jonas is joining the Chippendales

nick jonas

I mean, not officially or anything, but I’m assuming this is the next logical step for Nick Jonas, who is really working it for the gay fans (because I don’t assume any women are looking at and enjoying this) lately by stripping down at every available opportunity. He’s showing his asscrack, grabbing his dick and basically being a nice piece of eye candy for Adam and Steve, if you get my drift. No shade there, but let’s just be honest.

This latest spread is for Details – we’ve got no quotes or anything on the article, but I suppose nothing he has to say is going to be more interesting than the pictures, anyway, so it’s whatever. Enjoy!

Stephen Collins can’t get work now that the world knows he’s a child molester

stephen collins

Sure, Stephen Collins has a penchant for molesting young girls and lamenting his inability to rape his own child, but other than that, he’s a totally decent guy! So why is it that he can’t get work in Hollywood now JUST because he’s a depraved and sick individual?!

Stephen Collins says he’s now unemployable after audio of him confessing to child molestation surfaced.

Collins’ lawyer filed new legal docs — obtained by TMZ — in which he says the divorce trial between the actor and Faye Grant just got a whole lot easier, because there won’t be a fight over future income.

Collins’ lawyer says, “Faye’s decision to parade that recording … has resulted in Stephen having no income other than investment income and pension income.”

His lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, adds, “Stephen suffers greatly from the pillaring (sic) by the media surrounding Faye’s unlawful recording.

Newsflash, dipshit – it was completely legal in the state of California considering you committed multiple felonies and need to be prosecuted for it. Second of all, I love that he has the nerve to complain about no one hiring him because HE GOT CAUGHT BEING A DISGUSTING HUMAN BEING. What is wrong with the world?
