Madelaine Petsch is back in Vancouver Canada to start filming her hit CW show Riverdale. The actress had to quarantine for 14 days before being let out to roam around Canada and it looks like she spent most of that time filming TikTok videos with the rest of the cast and catching some sun in the yard of the staff lodging. The actress previously stated on her YouTube channel that she’s super sensitive to the sun due to her fair skin and doesn’t spend much time catching a tan. Mad’s had Diplo in her comments calling her out on the faux tanning sesh. He clearly didn’t notice that she’s mostly in the shade…

They say money can’t buy you happiness, which seems insane because not having to worry about bills would make most people much happier. The problem is that people who have money mostly seem to care about getting more money; what exactly does Jeff Bezos need more money for, anyway? You’d think at a certain point he’d go “really, I couldn’t spend all this money if I lived to be 500, I should pay my employees better and hire more people so they don’t have work like they’re building the pyramids” but nope, it’s just “f**k you, more money for me, lower taxes please.”
Vanessa Bryant’s mother, Sofia Laine, also wants more money. She gave an interview on Univision’s El Gorda y La Flaca where she said that after Kobe’s death, Vanessa kicked her out of her house, took her car and left her with nothing.
Vanessa Bryant tells a very different story, with news,com.au reporting she issued the following statement to the program after the segment aired:
My husband and daughter passed away unexpectedly, and yet my mother had the audacity to do a television interview speaking negatively of me while shedding tears for a car and a house that were not in her name.
She has removed all her diamond jewellery, emptied the apartment I provided, and put away the furniture to make it look like she doesn’t have my support. My husband and I have supported her financially for the past 20 years, and continue to do so, in addition to her monthly alimony.
Contrary to previous reports, she has not been physically present or emotionally supportive of my daughters and me after my husband and daughter passed away.
Now I see what is most important to my mother and it’s more than painful. I hope that everything that is coming out about our personal relationship ends here.
So I’ve got two thoughts on that, and the first one is it sounds like she did take back a car from her mother for whatever reason, and I’m not going speculate on why.
My second thought, however, is that why would Kobe be the one who wanted to financially support his mother-in-law? That makes no sense. When I first saw this story I assumed that it was Kobe’s mother saying Vanessa was cutting her off, not Vanessa’s mother. I don’t know what Vanessa Bryant’s mother did to piss her off if this is even remotely true, but it must have been something huge.

One thing journalists often have to decide is whether to use the active or passive voice in describing an incident. The headlines “Unarmed Black Man Executed by Police” and “One Dead After Police-Involved Shooting” could describe the same incident, but the use of the passive voice allows the person using it to avoid assigning responsibility to guilty parties.
Here’s what Ellen DeGeneres said about the accusations that she’s a gigantic bitch who made life miserable for everyone around her on the season premiere of her talk show, via Page Six:
Sarcastically calling her summer “great,” DeGeneres apologized to anyone who had been negatively affected while working on her staff.“As you may have heard, this summer there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show and then there was an investigation. I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously and I want to say I am so sorry to the people that were affected. I know that I am in a position of privilege and power and with that comes responsibility and I take responsibility for what happens at my show,” DeGeneres said.She added that she is now “taking responsibility for what happens at my show.”
Lady, you did pint learn s**t, you did s**t. Look at how she frames it: “things happened here that never should have happened.” That is not someone taking responsibility, that is someone using passive voice to specifically avoid responsibility. “Gee, I guess you had to chew gum before speaking to me and were reprimanded for looking me in the eye. I don’t know how that happened but I take full responsibility. And you, I recently discovered someone tried to get you fired for having chipped nail polish? Geez, what a Karen, right?”
This is an unrepentant person hoping her behavior can be swept under the rug. It’s not an apology and it’s not taking responsibility for anything, it’s just throwing some producers under the rug. You should have listened to your wife and retired, Ellen.

Mackenzie Standifer Looks Completely Different In New Selfie: What’s Going On With Ryan Edwards’ Wife?
In recent weeks, Teen Mom OG fans have had a lot to say about Mackenzie Standifer's appearance.
Specifically, they're concerned about Standifer's weight loss.
Now, some of these people are engaging in what's known as "concern-trolling," meaning they pretend to be worried Mackenzie's well-being, and they feel this entitles them to disparage her appearance.
It's irritating, but those people are better than the flat-out trolls, who have no qualms about bullying public figures on Instagram and make no effort to conceal their intentions.
These are the people who are always trying to outdo one another with their cruelty.
They're the ones who suggest that Mackenzie must be doing Ryan Edwards' drugs, as there could be no other explanation for her slender physique,
Of course, Edwards has been battling addiction for most of his adult life, so that sort of remark is doubly painful.
Standifer welcomed her third child in January, and the fact is, some fans can't deal with how quickly she's bounced back to her pre-pregnancy form.
The 23-year-old attributes her trim physique to diet and exercise, and we have no reason to doubt her.
But for whatever reason -- her continued association with the much-maligned Ryan being the most likely explanation -- a lot of people simply don't like Mackenzie, and they love to make their opinions known.
Fortunately, these days, the fans outnumber the haters on Mackenzie's page.
Mackenzie posted the above photo earlier this week.
Apparently feeling that it speaks for itself, she opted not to include any sort of caption,
Were there some trash-talkers trying to bring her down?
Yes, and sadly, that will probably the case on everything that she posts from here on out.
But the positivity overwhelmed the negativity this time, with some fans going so far as to suggest that Mackenzie should enter the world of modeling.
“At first I wasn’t a fan of yours. You grew on me. You’re a wonderful woman, mother, and wife! Very beautiful!” one user wrote.
“You should seriously get into modeling and get those beautiful children into modeling as well. N.Y. is calling! Gorgeous!” another added.
Others made remarks that were simpler and more to the point:
"Beautiful inside and out," one commenter wrote.
"Such a great picture of you," another chimed in.
Of course, there are those who are still theorizing that Mackenzie's slim physique is a sign of turmoil in her personal life.
The latest hypothesis seems to be that Standifer has trimmed down either because she's left Ryan or is about to:
“Let me give you the social media divorce breakdown: Step #1 Get your body-snatched, Step #2 Get those new boobies, Step #3 Start posting more selfies, Step #4 Say goodbye to dead weight,” the account Teen Mom Mamma Drama tweeted, according to Heavy.
“I guarantee you had a friend that did this.”
There doesn't appear to be any real reason to believe that Mackenzie has left Ryan.
Of course, he's given her so many reasons to do so in the past that such a move wouldn't surprise us in the slightest.
In recent weeks, rumors that Kim Kardashian is preparing to divorce Kanye West have been circulating non-stop.
Insiders say the incident in which West peed on a Grammy and railed against some of the brands and industry titans who helped to make him famous was the final straw for Kim, who is now just waiting for the right time to break the news to her troubled husband.
Those who know the couple best say that Kim and Kanye have been living separate lives since before the pandemic, and far from bringing them closer together, the global health crisis has only exacerbated the divisions between them.
Kim, of course, has yet to comment on the situation, but many fans believe her recent social media updates speak volumes about her mental state.
The latest to spark concern among fans is a post from Kim's Instagram Story that appeared in the wee hours of Monday morning.
It seems the ultra-busy 39-year-old was unable to get much sleep, so she turned to her followers for advice.
"Do I get a head start on my workout or try to go back to sleep?" Kim asked.
Shortly thereafter, she revealed that she had decided to do some studying.
As you may recall, Kim is working to become a lawyer, opting for a four-year internship in a San Francisco law firm over traditional law school.
Some might say the mother of four has a bit too much on her plate these days, but Kim doesn't seem like the type to slow down when the going gets rough.
After her study session, she joined Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson for an early morning workout.
She labeled a pic of the team's sneakers with "early bird special."
And where was Kanye during Kim's bout of insomnia?
Well, his whereabouts are currently unknown, but he's believed to be holed up at his ranch in Wyoming.
Insiders tell Page Six in no uncertain terms that Kim is still "planning to divorce" Kanye.
"Kim has the whole divorce planned out but she's waiting for him to get through his latest episode," says one source close to the situation.
The informant adds that Kim is "deeply disappointed" in her troubled husband as he "refuses to stick to his care plan," which was designed by his medical team to control the symptoms of his bipolar disorder.
"It’s a vicious cycle that Kim has had success at interrupting successfully for months at a time," the source says.
"It's the same thing over and over and over again."
The insider adds that Kim feels awful about taking steps toward ending her marriage while Kanye is enduring a mental health episode, but she feels she has no choice, as she has to make the health and safety of her children her top priority.
"He's on very thin ice with her right now, and she's truly trying to decide what to do to protect the kids, but also her own sanity," says the insider.
"The whole thing is discouraging and difficult for her."
Sources say it's not a matter of if Kim will leave her husband, but when.
Her biggest concerns reportedly have nothing to do with money and property, and everything to do with Kanye's mental health and the welfare of her children.
Insiders say Kim is hoping that the couple's iron-clad prenup will lead to a smooth and uncontested divorce.
But knowing Kanye's penchant for high drama, we wouldn't be surprised if this situation turns ugly in a hurry.
Some people will tell you that only the government can perform the act of censorship and others will crusade in favor of corporate censorship, usually on the basis of “family values” or Karl Popper’s paradox of tolerance; these people are all idiots. Censorship in any form is bad for society as a whole and corporate censorship is especially insidious because it only ever represents the views of the entrenched power and social elites.
Spotify recently spent $100 million to become the exclusive home of The Joe Rogan Experience, the most popular podcast in the history of the internet. Kind of sucks to be Adam Carolla, he was on top of the world until Rogan showed up with all the advantages he has over Carolla like being funny and not being borderline retarded.
It mostly blew over that when Spotify imported Rogan’s back-catalog to the platform they excluded several episodes with controversial guests like Alex Jones. I don’t normally listen to Rogan but I always tune in when he has Alex Jones on because Alex Jones is completely unhinged and it’s hilarious to listen to the stupid bullshit that comes out of his mouth. He’s basically one rung away from David Icke on the crazy ladder, and that dude thinks the British royal family are lizard people when in actuality they’re just racist.
But now reports are trickling out that a number of Spotify employees are very insistent that they want to censor new episodes of Rogan’s podcast when it becomes exclusive to Spotify’s platform later this year. According to Vice, Spotify has ten meetings about Rogan’s podcast, mostly about employees demanding Rogan’s podcast be censored and Digital Music News reported that Spotify employees want editorial control over Rogan’s podcast, essentially telling Rogan what he can say and what guests he can book. Employees reportedly want to “introduce direct editing oversight over The Joe Rogan Experience — before the episodes go live. That includes content flags, trigger warnings, references to fact-checked information, or simply refusing to publish an episode at all.”
The reason that Joe Rogan is so popular is that he’s free to speak his mind, unfiltered by corporate interests and network standards and practices. In Spotify’s press release announcing the acquisition of Rogan’s podcast exclusively on their platform, they even said that “While Spotify will become the exclusive distributor of JRE, Rogan will maintain full creative control over the show,” because they understood that no one likes standards and practices controlling shows.
A lot of chatter about censorship today casts those on the political left as the censors, mostly because of stories like this, a since the problem these people have with Rogan is things he’s said about trans people and jokes he’s made about Caitlyn Jenner. But historically network censorship has pushed a conservative agenda, keeping couples in separate beds and keeping gay characters and interracial couples off the air.
People in favor of censorship always just assume they will always be the ones censoring things, but that’s never the case. All you do is make it okay for big corporations to take creative control away from the people that audiences actually want to hear from. Luckily, in this case, Rogan probably thought to have retaining creative control of his show in his contract, which is why Spotify CEO Daniel Ek has pushed back against employees who want to censor Rogan; they shelled out a hundred million dollars because people want to listen to Joe Rogan, not to the opinions of the Spotify Spectrum Employee Relations Group.
Running for President takes a lot of thought and preparation, and for good reason; getting on the ballot is nothing compared to actually being President. It’s not generally something you can just decide to do at the last minute with no plan and no idea how to go about getting on the ballot.
You know, unless you have more money than brains. If you’re a rich idiot, you can just find some consultant to do all the work for you. This is true of pretty much anything, not just running for President.
So how much did Kanye West spend after deciding he wanted to be president at the last second, after the deadline had passed to get on the ballot in a large number of states? According to TMZ, over $3 million.
Kanye’s Presidential run is a great example of why we need a government to provide basic social services instead of relying on the largess of the rich. Kanye could have done a lot of good for a lot of people in any number of ways with the money he spent on a Presidential run that will ultimately amount to nothing. Kanye appears to care a lot of issues and he has the phone number of the President of the United States already, his time and money would be much better spent addressing those issues by working with groups focused on those issues. But those don’t buy the kinds of headlines “Kanye West running for President” buys.

The Duggar family is often likened to a cult, and for very good reason.
After all, Jim Bob and Michelle's children are inculcated with a religious belief system long before they develop the ability to reason for themselves, and then they spend the rest of their lives following a strict set of rules and avoiding outsiders.
Needless to say, that's all very cultish behavior.
No one in the family ever responds to "cult" allegations, but if they did, they would likely point out that the Duggar children choose to live this way, and they're free to leave the lifestyle behind any time they want.
Of course, that's exactly what a cult leader would say, too.
Anyway, among those who believe that the Duggars are on par with Heaven's Gate and the Manson family, it's widely agreed that Jana is the one who's fallen most deeply under Jim Bob and Michelle's spell.
Jana is still single, and she still lives at home.
Insiders say she does the majority of the housework and shoulders most of the responsibility for the raising of her youngest siblings.
Last week, the Duggars teased a courtship announcement, and fans were hopeful that it would finally be Jana's turn to take a trip down the aisle.
But it turned out that 17-year-old Justin Duggar is the one who's courting.
We're sure Jana is very happy for her brother, but fans still wish she had been the one with the big announcement.
The news came on the heels of an interview in which Jana clarified that she's being patient in her continued search Mr. Right.
But fans -- many of whom apparently think they know her better than she knows herself -- don't see it that way.
Last week, Jana posted a loving tribute to her mother on the occasion of Michelle's birthday.
Following this week's announcement, one fan went back and expressed their frustration with Jana's continued allegiance to her parents by commenting one word: "brainwashed."
According to a report from The World News Daily, the comment created quite a stir and was quickly deleted.
But it was up long enough to spark a debate among fans -- is Jana really brainwashed?
The answer is, possibly -- but no more so than most of her other siblings.
The belief that Jana has been especially victimized by her parents is centered on the idea that she's been forced to remain at home, while her siblings leave the nest and start families.
But Duggar daughters are taught from a young age that procreation is their primary reason for being, and Jana's parents would probably prefer that she start a family of her own.
Believe it or not, the decision to remain at home with her overbearing mom and dad appears to be Jana's
Some of Jana's sisters are currently in open rebellion against Jim Bob, and yes, she's probably more "brainwashed" than they are.
But there's always hope that she'll one day see the light and realize that she doesn't need to follow every single one of her parents' bizarre beliefs in order to be a good person.
90 Day Fiance is one of those franchises that sounds like it could be full of amazing love stories or just a total trainwreck.
Amazingly, the show manages to be both ... which is why people can't stop watching the TLC show and its 678 spinoffs.
Sometimes, you see couples like Kirlyam and Alan Cox, who met despite being from different continents but found love and happiness, got married, and are growing their families.
Then you have more ... infamous couples.
Couples like Danielle Mullins and Mohamed Jbali, who seemed to be trying to out-scam each other until those schemes devolved into mutual loathing.
A lot of the couples fall into the middle somewhere.
Some are a little weird, some seem like soulmates.
Any marriage can go right or wrong, and becoming reality stars during your engagement adds an extra special twist to that.
Honestly, you might be shocked at how many of these couples are still together. And which ones aren't.
