If you’ve been on social media at all, you’ll know that the insult of the moment is “cuck,” a term so overused by certain segments of society that it’s become a joke to the rest of the internet. Cuck is short for cuckold, a man whose wife is sleeping with another man, either behind his back or right in front of him, the implication being that he can’t properly please his partner.
This has lead to some of the worst things on the Internet, like the not-safe-for-work comic Oh Joy Sex Toy doing a really sad and creepy strip about the practice.
There have been rumors for a while that rapper August Alsina was having an affair with Jada Pinkett Smith. He denied last year that his song ‘Nunya’ was about her, but he had a, uh, different story to tell to Complex recently. Now he says that not only was he having an affair with her, but he also claims Will Smith was totally cool with it.
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation … He gave me his blessing,” he said. “And I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really, deeply loved and have a ton of love for her (Jada). I devoted myself to it. I gave my full self to it. So much so that I can die right now, and be OK knowing that I fully gave myself to somebody … Some people never get that in this lifetime.”
Now Alsina says that the couple isn’t even really a couple anymore, they’re just sort of roommates.
Entertainment Tonight Canada got a statement from Smith and Pinkett Smith’s reps who said Alsina’s claims are “absolutely not true.”
It’s a very weird lie to tell, though. Alsina went into detail about how in love he was with Jada and how their break-up devastated him and sounds like he’s genuinely in love with her. That’s not the sort of story you make up for clout.

Believe it or not, the first adult animated series was The Flintstones. I know, when I was growing up it was a kid’s show, we even had The Flintstone Kids and that weird show where Pebbles and Bam-Bam were teenagers. But originally the Flintstones were a prime-time family sitcom and before Fruity Pebbled came along, Fred and Barney were the spokesmen for Winston cigarettes, which was the brand I smoked before I switched to Nat Sherman as a way to look down on all the plebs who smoked Marlboros.
I am not making any of the up, either.
Winston tastes good, like a cigarette should. I smoked for years and I always thought all cigarettes tasted terrible, I had to have something like coke to drink while I was smoking to get the taste out of my mouth. But damn did it make me look cool.
Even though it started 30 years later and well after The Simpsons began as well, Beavis and Butthead still feels like an early pioneer of adult animation. It’s hard to explain just how taboo watching it felt, like you were getting away with something. It’s not like my parents ever told me I wasn’t allowed to watch it or anything, but the news and it seemed like society as a whole we’re trying to keep us from watching it. The media made a huge to-do about a fire set by a five-year-old supposedly obsessed with fire because of Beavis and Butthead that killed his sister, and not much mention at all when neighbors said the kid didn’t have cable TV and had never seen Beavis and Butthead.
Well, Beavis and Butthead is coming back. Comedy Central has announced they’ve committed to two seasons as well as spin-offs and specials. Comedy Central also picked up the Daria revival which now is just called Jodie and won’t feature Daria, so who cares now?
I don’t think that Beavis and Butthead will quite have the same cultural impact as it did in the 90s. It pushed the envelope and became the cool show to watch because most people’s parents were dead set on keeping them from watching it, but I don’t foresee that happening. I can’t even imagine what they could possibly do to push the envelope in the same way they did back then.
Along with the Beavis and Butthead news, though, we also got news that a revival of cult classic Mission Hill is also officially underway from original creators Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein, which ran one season on The WB and eventually found an audience in reruns in the early days of Adult Swim.
You see, Dilbert creator Scott Adams complained about being canceled by UPN because the network shifted its focus to African-American viewers, so a lot of other creators who had short-lived adult cartoons at the time made fun of him for being a big racist baby. One of those people was Bill Oakley, who took the opportunity to say that unlike Dilbert, Mission Hill was coming back. Hopefully.
MISSION HILL FANS: FYI @Joshstrangehill are working on bringing the show back and are taking it out to buyers soon. The new show takes place about six months after the original series ended (so 2000) and there is more Gus & Wally which is why it is tentatively titled GUS & WALLY
— BILL OAKLEY (@thatbilloakley) June 30, 2020
I was a little curious about what the Gus & Wally title meant, and I mentioned in a tweet that I was hoping for more of an ensemble where former supporting characters Gus and Wally, a scene-stealing elderly gay couple, would have an increased role but episodes would still feature characters like Kevin and Andy French, the main characters of the original run, along with their roommates Posey and Jim (played by the hilarious Brian Posehn). Oakley, who is an awesome guy, told me that was the plan for the show, which instantly erased any doubts I had since I’m not sure Gus and Wally could carry a series despite their strong showing in the series last episode (for now), Plan Nine From Mission Hill (Or How I Married a Gay Man From Outer Space), which was all about the couple.
My guess, based purely on instinct, is that there’s a better than 50% chance this eventually gets picked up and that when it does it goes back to the Mission Hill name, just with more episodes (but probably not even the majority of them) centered on Gus and Wally.
I also think that Mission Hill will ultimately be the more successful return than Beavis and Butthead because it was successful for a much different reason. Mission Hill wasn’t really pushing the envelope and challenging the status quo (though I believe Gus and Wally were the first gay couple shown in bed together on TV), it was a smaller, character-driven show that was essentially pitched as “The Simpsons but with 20-somethings from people who wrote The Simpsons when it was good.”
You can still achieve that and adult animation still doesn’t have a lot of shows featuring characters in that age group. Look at Rick and Morty or Bob’s Burgers. Kids and teens and parents. No college kids, college drop-outs, or fresh out of college kids anywhere. Mission Hill can still fill that niche and it doesn’t need to shock us or push the envelope to live up to its legacy.

If you know anything about the Duggars, then you're probably familiar with the infamous Duggar dress code.
There are many absurd rules that the Duggar kids are forced to follow, but perhaps nothing encapsulates the complete control that Jim Bob seeks over his children quite like the dress code.
Like so many of JB's asinine strictures, the dress code serves no real purpose and is horribly unfair.
Boys and men are allowed to wear pretty much whatever they want, while girls and women are forced to cover up, so as not to evoke any "impure" thoughts.
And just to underscore how absurdly patriarchal the Duggars' world is, Jim Bob's daughters can only be saved from the ridiculous dress code by a man.
As long as they remain unmarried -- even if they're well into adulthood -- Duggar women are forced to wear attire that meets their parents' seal of approval.
Once they're married, however, their husbands can override Jim Bob's rules.
For example, Jinger Duggar started wearing pants several years ago, but only after she married Jeremy Vuolo and he gave her permission.
In the years since, some of her sisters have followed suit, while others have continued to sport floor-length skirts and long sleeves in accordance with their parents' wishes.
For a long time, Joy-Anna Duggar was one of the hold-outs.
In her youth, she was so committed to the dress code that she famously used to lift weights while wearing a long skirt.
In 2017, Joy-Anna married Austin Forsyth, who has since gained a reputation as one of the most conservative men to marry into the Duggar clan.
As a result, it looked as though she would remain confined by her parents' dress code for the entirety of her adulthood.
So you can imagine fans' surprise this week when they logged on to Instagram and saw Joy-Anna violating the Duggar dress code by wearing a shirt that revealed her bare shoulders.
Yes, it seems that Joy and Austin brought their son Gideon with them to procure some fireworks in preparation for the Fourth of July.
And Joy decided to beat the summer heat by rocking a sleeveless tee shirt.
That may not sound very revealing, but Duggar women usually keep their arms mostly covered.
For most of her life the idea of going out in public with bare shoulders would have been unthinkable to Joy.
Now, she's flaunting her right to bare arms on Instagram!
Naturally, this situation has led to rumors that Joy has joined some of her sisters in rebelling against Jim Bob.
As you're probably aware the feud between Jim Bob and Derick Dillard continues to heat up, and battle lines are being drawn throughout the family.
Jill and Jinger have made it clear that they feel their father is in the wrong.
Jana, meanwhile, is firmly on her parents' side, and it seems she's joined by Joy.
Currently, Joy-Anna is pregnant with her second child, and it seems she desires nothing more than a quiet, stable domestic life with her husband and children.
She probably doesn't have any desire to rock the boat -- she just wants the right to rock a sleeveless tee on a hot day.
Despite a middle-road storyline on Season 7, Blake Abelard and Jasmin Lahtinen are one of 90 Day Fiance's most referenced recent couples.
Now, Blake is catching up fans on their married life, their sex life, and the ways that TLC misrepresented their relationship.
Like so many 90 Day Fiance stars before him, Blake spoke on The Domenick Nati Show.
In terms of his sex life with Jasmin, he says: "You know, it’s been happening more and requested more during this quarantine …"
Blake explains that their increasingly amorous married life is possible "because I’m home more."
"Ever since quarantine," Blake reflects, "that’s been happening."
Blake notes that he and Jasmin have been asked many times about whether that banging might lead to a baby.
He replies that theya re planning on having children, promising that "it will happen.
But that said, there is no rush.
Despite all of the boning that they have been up to for the past few months, they are not actually trying to conceive.
That doesn't mean that they haven't expanded their family a little.
In April, Blake and Jasmin adopted a precious little kitten named Oliver.
As for their wedding, Blake details, it was an intimate ceremony in Woodland Hills, California -- near where he grew up.
"It was all real close people, all close friends. My dad was there. Her parents were there,” Blake describes. “And her sister was there."
Speaking of Jasmin's sister, Blake explains that, on 90 Day Fiance, some aspects of their relationship were “exaggerated” to “an extent."
Only up to a point, he explains, clarifying: "I’m not gonna say, ‘Oh, this is completely false.’"
"But, you know, there are things that have been exaggerated," Blake acknowledges.
TLC made some editing choices "that made it seem worse than it was, or worse than it is."
“For example, the music thing," Blake says.
Readers will recall that Jasmin seemed disinterested, to say the least, in Blake's career.
"She doesn’t like my music or whatever," he characterizes the portrayal.
"Obviously, when we’re being filmed we’re talking about it," Blake admits, "but you don’t hear the full conversation."
"You hear little parts of it," Blake explains. "So it seems that way."
"Yeah, of course, we said it," he confirms. "But it depends on the context."
"You don’t know the context of how we say it," Blake points out.
He is absolutely right. That is how reality TV functions, and how producers and editors sculpt raw footage into storylines.
"We shot crazy cool stuff that was left out,” Blake also adds with an air of regret.
“So it just seems like my friends are nagging her, she’s not getting along with them," he explains.
Blake adds that it appears on the show that "she hates my music, she’s using me, and she just wants to be with her sister."
But viewers are only seeing things from a certain point of view.
"But the stuff that was actually cool and loving and nice, you know, you missed," Blake concludes.
That is how reality television works, but we're glad that he is not claiming that TLC magically fabricated the points of disagreement.
The point is that they don't have to -- they just selectively pick out pieces of what they filmed that tell what they feel is an interesting story.
Anyway, we'll let these two get back to lockdown boning.
Halsey took time to check in with her fans on Instagram yesterday and she wanted to let us all know that she’s interested in buying a cottage. She took a snap in a pretty little dress eating strawberry jam on toast. She pointed out that she never has a manicure and her nails are shorty all the time, but one thing is for sure she’s always got that make-up done right! So here’s Halsey being cute!

What the heck is going on in LA right now? I know these people are basically c list, or I guess Megan Fox counts as B list as of now, working her way back up to the top now that she’s gone on the apology tour for the comments she made about Michael Bay and the crew while filming Bad Boys. She’s also working on the angle of dating that rapper Machine Gun Kelly while still being married to Brian Austin Green. So we’re all talking about Megan Fox again.
Courtney Stodden saw this as the perfect opportunity to get her name back in the world at the same time by linking up with Brian and now, looking a lil faded in a hot tub with him. What is going on in this video! It starts off with Brian saying “what are you saying sorry for?” to Courtney and then she starts addressing someone named Ashley!? It’s actually hilarious and almost a work of art with Courntey saying “I don’t know who this is” at the end. Cheers to these two.

On this week's 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, all eyes were on Brittany and Yazan's stressful drive to the hotel.
Meanwhile, Deavan Clegg also touched down ... but it was her mom who was in for an uncomfortable car ride.
Jihoon Lee's stomach was tied into knots of anxiety as Deavan Clegg returned to South Korea with her mom and two young children in tow.
Yes, he was excited to see Deavan again, not to mention little Drascilla and Taeyang and Deavan's mom, Elicia.
But Jihoon knows that he has been lying to Deavan about obtaining gainful employment ... and he can't hide that for much longer.
Jihoon admits that he actually feels queasy as he and his parents await Deavan's arrival.
Keep in mind that this would have been filmed some time in the Fall of 2019.
Deavan quickly spots his wife.
Here come Deavan and Druscilla!
They already have their luggage and are on their way to see him.
We mean this in the nicest way possible, but ... Deavan (who is a beautiful, stylish woman) looks like she's been through the wringer.
Coming off of a 22 hour flight with two small children, who wouldn't look like they're at death's door?
Jihoon's parent cannot help but comment on how much luggage Deavan has with her.
That's not surprising -- she's uprooting not only her entire life, but Drascilla's and Taeyang's. Plus, her mom's there.
Deavan sees that Jihoon is with his parents and her heart drops.
This is absolutely not the way that she envisioned Elicia meeting her in-laws.
She wanted her and her kids and her mom to be at their best when they met, not half-awake and fresh off of a flight.
Drascilla jumps up into Jihoon's arms.
She has spent months away from him -- a small lifetime, when you're barely three years old.
(And yes, despite some weird editing earlier this season making it sound like Deavan says that she is four, she was barely three)
It is a touching reunion for Deavan, Jihoon, and Drascilla.
Taeyang is sort of too young to experience touching reunions, and that's okay.
And introductions are in order between Deavan's mom and Jihoon's parents.
Jihoon very sweetly introduces Elicia as his "second mom."
That is touching and we're sure that it made Elicia feel nice.
Of course, Jihoon's parents are not familiar with the expression, to comedic effect.
Honestly? Maybe the cutest part of this whole thing was Jihoon's affection for Drascilla.
She is still a little shy -- after having flown and been reunited (after a time that for her would be like years for us) and seems tired and overwhelmed.
Jihoon, however, is so sweet with her.
Speaking of affection, Elicia at first does a somewhat proper bow to Jihoon's parents.
Then she just hugs them both, holding them very tight against her.
It's an earnest display of affection ... but it is also maybe crossing some cultural and personal boundaries.
Poor Deavan looks visibly embarrassed, but that could be the result of the cameras or editors.
Many parents embarrass their children like it's their full time job.
It probably doesn't help that Deavan is absolutely exhausted.
Meanwhile, Jihoon's parents speak to the camera, marveling at Elicia's very familiar manner.
They note that in-laws in Korea are generally treated with a little formality and respect, including towards each other.
They were not really expecting the bear hug from Elicia.
That said, they very diplomatic about the whole thing.
Still speaking to the camera and conscious that their words will air one day, they emphasize that it was a pleasant experience.
Honestly? That is very generous of them. (Hugs are amazing but everyone involved needs to be comfortable with them)
Then they go outside, where Jihoon helps to engage Drascilla (he's so good with her!) by pointing out their ride.
Seeing its yellow color, Drascilla identifies the van as a "bus."
This, of course, is where things start to go haywire for Drascilla's mom.
International travelers are often taken aback by surprising things that are different, from power outlets to tipping culture.
The US actually has an international reputation for strict traffic laws and a politeness in driver behavior.
In places like South Korea, driving behavior can be different and even a little alarming, as Elicia discovered.
During the one-hour ride, Elicia is uncomfortable -- and begins to "freak out" before they even leave the parking lot.
We're not saying that we blame her, and she herself admits that she's wigging out.
You know how some people pop a benzodiazepine or two for a flight? Maybe Elicia could try that for a car ride in South Korea.
The one area where Elicia and Jihoon's mom see eye-to-eye is the apartment that Jihoon now has for him and his family.
It's really not a suitable place for them, let alone for their children.
Financial realities can be grim in Korea just as they are here, but the accommodations are bound to be a sticking point as the season goes on.

The more we hear about the rules and regulations that governed life in the Duggar household, the less we're surprised by the abuse that was allowed to take place under Michelle and Jim Bob's roof.
When deployed properly, rules can be an invaluable tool for teaching children discipline and, more importantly, keeping them safe.
In the Duggar home, however, rules were used primarily to maintain a corrupt power structure, with church leaders at the top and parents close behind, followed by a strict sibling hierarchy with the oldest kids in charge.
As we've discussed in the past, the Duggars used a "buddy system" to make life in a house with 19 children more manageable.
Eventually, this gave way to Jana Duggar raising her younger siblings on her own.
But in the early days, each older child was assigned a younger brother or sister to look after.
At the top of his power structure was Michelle and Jim Bob's oldest child, Josh Duggar.
At this point, we're sure you've heard about the Josh Duggar sex scandals and all the appalling details about Josh's routine abuse of his sisters.
You may have wondered how such horrors could be permitted to take place in a house with so many people.
Well, a new article written by Jill Duggar for her personal website may have shed some new light on that mystery:
"When I was a kid, I remember my mom constantly encouraging us kids to work out disagreements between ourselves," Jill wrote.
"Of course there were plenty of times when we just couldn’t see eye-to-eye with a sibling, or we were so emotional that a friend couldn’t reason with us and we needed an adult to help, but many other times, the little petty disagreements or someone picking on us could be resolved without involving an adult," she added.
From there, Jill described how this principle was put into practice when disagreements arose in the Duggar household:
"My mom had 2 rules: Rule number 1: 'Talk sweet.' Rule number 2: 'Go and tell'…an adult (and to be used only if rule number one didn’t work)," she wrote.
"If we came running to her with our little problem without having applied these two rules in the correct order, then we would be reminded of them and might be asked if we would like to 'try again'," Jill recalled.
Perhaps anticipating the way that anecdote would be received by critics, Jill added that there were rare cases in which exceptions were made:
"If there was an emergency and someone was going to get hurt, or if a mess was being made, then we didn’t have to follow these steps and could step in and help or run for an adult immediately," she wrote.
Jill didn't come right out and say an exception would be made in the case of sexual abuse, but she seems to be getting in front of the argument that the culture of silence created by her parents led to an environment in which Josh was free to traumatize his sisters for life.
Perhaps the most worrisome thing about this situation is that Jill is taking a similar approach with her own children -- and she's encouraging other children to do the same.
Do we think such abuse will take place in every household where children are discouraged from telling on one another? Of course not.
In fact, there's nothing inherently wrong with teaching children to resolve conflicts without intervention from adults.
But when you take a home filled with 19 children, ban all tattling, and teach said children that all sexual urges are evil impulses that are to be repressed and never discussed, you're creating an environment in which molestation is almost certain to take place.
Unfortunately, it can take generations for families to break free from such destructive policies.
And sadly, it seems Jill Duggar isn't there yet.
Hopefully, one of her siblings will take steps to distance themselves from their parents' more damaging, and thus, create a safer environment for their children.
But a childhood like the one Jill endured leaves deep scars, and the process of unlearning can take a lifetime.
Are All Card Games Racist? Cards Against Humanity Writer was Involuntarily Committed for Objecting to Racism
Have you seen the “I just want to grill for god’s sake” meme yet?
It’s a weird boomer thing but I kind of relate to it. I wish that card games would stop being racist so I could just enjoy them. I love Magic: the Gathering more than most things because I’m actually a giant dork, so it was kind of disheartening to find out it was made by a pack of racists.
I also love Cards Against Humanity, the super-funny party game where you match a white card with a black card to make the most hilariously offensive phrase you can.
Like Magic, Cards Against Humanity presents itself as being made by “the good guys.” Creator Max Temkin worked for Obama! They make fun of consumerism! They had a black employee committed to a mental institution for objecting to workplace racism! Wait, they had a black employee committed to a mental institution for objecting to workplace racism?
Nicolas Carter, a humorist and former Cards Against Humanity card writer recently made a Medium post detailing how yes, he was put in a mental institution after raising objections to racism.
From what I’ve been able to gather, Andy, Jo, Jack, and Eunji felt that my behavior had changed so dramatically that I must have been facing a mental break. One of the side-effects of having money was my mood improving, who could have known, and the combination of me saying what I really thought and being happy didn’t seem like my normal self to them.
Basically, once he had job security and didn’t have to stress about money, he started telling his white colleagues about his experiences with racism and they thought he was literally crazy enough to have him institutionalized.
Are the people who make Yu-Gi-Oh racist? It’s a terrible game but you know what, at this point, I’ll take what I can get.
I mean, I’m not going to stop playing Magic or Cards Against Humanity because I like the product and literally every corporation is evil. We like to find a few companies to boycott os we can ignore all the evil things every other company does. But come the f**k on, having a guy thrown in the looney bin for saying racism is bad is a new low.
Dela West is convinced that Doja Cat and Cardi B are ripping her off. It kind of reminds me of Spirit suing Led Zeppelin over ‘Stairway to Heaven’; you have someone who sucks and is terrible looking to get some money or fame from actual good musicians by exploiting a few superficial similarities because you don’t want to admit you’re not as talented as they are.
Cardi B is probably the wrong person to f**k with, though, she will not take your crap nearly as well as Jimmy Page. And we all heard the rumors about what he did with that groupie and the shark, but he never ripped a bitch’s weave out.
Here’s what Cardi had to say about these accusations on Twitter.
First of all you weird ass bitch u been trying me for hot minute .You really cross the line when u stalkin my fans page and put this s**t on a pic of me & my kid .SO YES THATS I’m bringing my kid https://t.co/hsosqK3HC1 pic.twitter.com/2HamR9tJwr

She sounds like she’s getting ready to throw a shoe, and I don’t blame her. She decided to log off of Twitter for a while, presumably before Dela gets dog walked,

The post Cardi B Is NOT Having Dela Wesst’s Accusations of Stealing Her Work appeared first on The Blemish.
Reports about sexual assault can get really complicated. For example, The New York Post reported that Mythbusters Star Adam Savage is being sued by his sister for childhood sexual assault that allegedly occurred over a three-year period starting when she was seven and he was nine.
“Beginning in or about 1976 and continuing until approximately 1979, Adam Savage, would repeatedly rape Miranda Pacchiana and force oral sex upon her, and forced Miranda to perform oral sex on him, along with other forms of sexual abuse,” says her lawsuit, filed in Westchester Supreme Court.
The suit says Savage, who was between 9 and 12 years old at the time, would prevent Pacchiana from leaving the bed and anally rape her.
He allegedly nicknamed himself the “raping blob” while masking the abuse as a game, according to the complaint.
Okay, so let’s talk about this. For starters, Savage denies the accusations.
“While I hope that my sister gets the help she needs to find peace, this needs to end. For many years, she has relentlessly and falsely attacked me and other members of my family to anyone who will listen,” Savage said. “By spreading numerous untrue stories about us in pursuit of a financial bonanza, she has tortured our entire family and estranged herself from all of us. I will fight this groundless and offensive lawsuit and work to put this to rest once and for all.”
Their mother also says the allegations are untrue, saying her daughter has “severe mental health problems.”
So what does this case mean? Well, first of all, even if the allegations are true, I think you will be hard-pressed to find a jury willing to issue monetary damages to someone based on a person’s behavior 40-some years ago when they were nine.
Second, and more importantly, the sort of behavior Savage’s sister alleges is the kind of behavior you can expect from a victim of child sex abuse. Nine-year-olds don’t just rape people because they’re rapists, they’re nine, they don’t understand the morality or consequences of sex, that’s the whole reason we have age of consent laws.
That said, even if it’s true, a lawsuit against your brother who was a child at the time seems like an odd way to resolve the issue. It does make it seem less plausible, no one in the world is going to read this and think it reflects on the person Adam Savage is as an adult if they believe it, which, again… seems unlikely.
