Today marks the 28th birthday of twins Jana and John David Duggar.
Of course, in a rare reversal for the family, it's the male who's being pushed to the margins, and the female who's getting all the attention.
But don't worry, the reasons for that are completely sexist, in keeping with the Duggars' reputation.
You see, Jana is still single.
This is almost unheard of for a family in which girls are taught from a young age that procreation is their sole reason for being.
So with every birthday, the moaning and hand-wringing from the Duggar faithful becomes more intense, as does the need to believe that Jana is in a secret courtship that will soon bear fruit ... and by "fruit," of course, we mean children.
Here's a complete list of all the men Jana has been erroneously linked to over the years.
1. Single Cinderella
2. Pushed Out of the Nest?
3. Or Shackled to the Compound?
4. Either Way...
5. The Pressure Increases
6. Who Are the Suitors?

Donald Trump has not had a good week. He hasn't since 2016, honestly, but this week has been particularly bad.
After it came out that Trump called countries with non-white majorities "sh-tholes" and that he thought that diplomats should be given tasks according to their ethnicity, another bombshell dropped.
It is alleged that Trump paid a six-figure settlement to a porn star to buy her silence about a sexual encounter that took place after he married Melania.
On Friday, a damning report by the Wall Street Journal alleges that Donald Trump arranged for porn star Stephanie Clifford, known professionally as Stormy Daniels, to receive $130,000 in hush money.
Oh, just one month before the 2016 election.
The two of them, per the report, had an alleged sexual encounter in 2006.
Clifford was 27 at the time of the consensual encounter at Lake Tahoe.
In case you need a refresher, Trump and Melania married in January of 2006. So this wouldn't have just been a hook-up with an adult film star, but cheating on Melania shortly after they married.
Michael Cohen, who was an attorney for the Trump Organization at the time, is the one who made the alleged arrangements for a payment.
The $130,000 payment was apparently part of a non-disclosure agreement that the adult film star signed.
The White House declined to comment on the alleged six-figure payment, but called the report that Trump had bedded Clifford "old" and "recycled," mentioning that the reports had been "strongly denied" even before the election.
(Which is interesting, because mentioning that something was publicly denied is not the same thing as denying it yourself)
Cohen, the attorney who is said to have set up the payment, said that Trump "once again vehemently denies" the story that he had any sort of sexual relationship with Stormy Daniels.
Interestingly, like the White House, Cohen also declined to comment on the $130,000 payment.
But that's not to say that Cohen didn't have anything to say to the Wall Street Journal:
"This is now the second time that you are raising outlandish allegations against my client."
Is it really outlandish? Even if this isn't true, it doesn't sound outlandish in the slightest.
"You have attempted to perpetuate this false narrative for over a year; a narrative that has been consistently denied by all parties since at least 2011."
He's right about one thing:
Stephanie Clifford has denied it. She's denied the sexual tryst and she's denied the substantial sum of hush money.
Of course, her denial includes the claim that he was a "total gentleman" to her when they met, which just about defies belief.
Clifford does acknowledge that she made some professional appearances for the Trump brand.
For example, she attended the launch of Trump Vodka in 2007, the year after the alleged sexual encounter.
Trump Vodka has, of course, failed like so many of Trump's business ventures. Production of that shut down in 2011.
But Stormy Daniels' enduring links to Trump continue.
We're generally leery of reports, especially when they seem to confirm everything that we suspect about a person we dislike.
But coming from a conservative outlet like the Wall Street Journal, whose sources for this apparently include multiple people in whom Stephanie Clifford confided the story that she publicly denies, it seems to hold water.
Of course, this is Trump. What would be a career-ending scandal for another politician seems to only inspire his most ardent defenders. Spite is making Trump-supporters twist themselves into knots to cover for him.
Maybe, one day, it will all be too much.

It’s a question that has vexed women since the beginning of time: “How can I make my whole body smell like a vagina?” If the answer you’re looking for is an overpriced designer perfume with an already-outdated knit pink cap on it, they boy have I got good news for you.
According to TMZ, a New York woman named Fran Moss filed patent and trademark applications for “Pussy” perfume and fragrances. And she accompanied the filing with a design for a perfume bottle with one of those pussy hats that were stylish for about 15 seconds on the top.
According to the docs, Fran’s toying with product names like pussy juice, pussy power, pussy now, and pussy positive. She also wants her trademark to include the “pussy power color” pink, and the pussyhat ears.
TMZ also stated that the filing covers “fragrance-emitting wicks, sachets, pet sprays, body sprays and perfumes”. Yikes. At best this is a shallow ploy to cash in on upper-class trendy feminism, at worst this lady is going to flood the market with products that smell like an actual vagina.
Pussy would actually be a good name for one of those pheromone perfumes that are supposed to get you laid, but I’m guessing this is just a shallow ploy to sell sandalwood and lavender scented candles to the sort of person who wants to be seen as a serious feminist but also thinks we should cut funding for WIC. Which is kind of fitting since the Women’s March itself quickly converted from a grassroots moment of civil protest to a 501(c)(4) dark money super PAC.
Either way, I’d like to announce that I’ll be launching my own complementary line of scents for men called “Vinegary Balls”. The cologne comes in a bottle with truck nuts hanging off of it. I’m thinking it’ll be sandalwood scented.
If you’re like me and don’t pay attention to the actual news because all of that shit is depression, mudslides hit California and killed 17 people. See what I mean. Nothing but depressing shit.
Just look at this depressing photo:

A lot of celebrities live in California. Among them are Rob Lowe and Bella Thorne. One is literally awesome in just about every movie/television show he’s in. The other is Bella Thorne, best known for not dating Scott Disick.
In a now deleted tweet, Bella typed, “Fuck u 101 to Santa Barbara. I’m missing my boyfriends first date on his tour :(((”
The internet savy Rob Lowe blasted her for the tweet.
Feigning ignorance, Bella stated that she didn’t know what was going on with the mudslides.
Fuck just caught up on some news had no idea why the 101 was shut down…get home to your family safe

The people weren’t buying that excuse.
You just heard? Its been all over the news for the past 3 days! What world do you live in?

In fairness to Bella, she may avoid the news because it’s depressing as well. However, given that she’s on social media all the time, it’s tough not to think that she didn’t know what’s going on. Trending topics on social media are always natural disasters and Donald Trump.
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!
Mod Sun, who is Bella’s boyfriend, decided to jump into the conversation and defend his bae from Rob Lowe.
“I thought you was cool, man. Out here being whack,” the rapper said in an Instagram Story early Friday, January 12, tagging Lowe in his post. “It’s quiet as f—k over here for, Rob Lowe. Quiet as f—k.”
This guy is exactly the kind of person who Bella would date. What is he even saying in this video? Rob Lowe is right, this is why people hate celebrities. Just apologize and move on. Don’t try to turn this into something it’s not.
By the looks of things, Bella got to the show ok, so I guess the mudslide didn’t cause her too much harm. Unlike the people who lost their homes and lives.
Rob Lowe is probably pulling people out of the mud as I type this. Bella is just getting stuck in the Mod.
I didn’t think this would have to said, but “fiction” means that something didn’t actually happen. Someone, it seems, needs to give this memo to the journalists and social media users pouring over James Franco’s 2013 fictional novel Actors Anonymous for proof of his sexual misdeeds.
Now, there’s always some amount of truth in fiction. For example, like John Gault from Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand gave long, rambling monologues about capitalism that put everyone around her to sleep. And J.K. Rowling based the Harry Potter novels on her time in a boarding school for wizards where she learned the dark arts and fought a deadly duel with an evil wizard named Voldemort. But the events in novels are fictionalized and sensationalized to make them more interesting to the readers.
Franco’s novel, Actors Anonymous, follows two main characters, one named James Franco and one only referred to as The Actor, because James Franco isn’t a particularly good writer. Even though the novel is written as a memoir about a guy named James Franco, Franco has always maintained that it’s fictional.
Even though I don’t think I could say fictional more times to describe Franco’s novel, which you can find in the fiction section of your local library or book store, people have been reading the book’s made-up passages about how the fictional James Franco seduces a bunch of young women and going “See! This is a thing that really happened! We told you James Franco is bad!”
Here’s what James Franco said about the passages about his sex life to the New York Daily News in 2013 when the novel released:
“People might roll their eyes at this answer, but I’m really thinking more of the perception of James Franco than trying to confess,” he says.
“Whatever version of James Franco is in there, I’m a person whose public persona is weird. It’s all over the place. The persona is partly my creation. And it’s partly not my creation.
“But the James Franco in the book is part of the atmosphere I’m creating.”
Later in the interview he notes that the book is “pointedly not a memoir”. In other words, it’s about his public persona and not the person he really is. It’s like how Rick Flair said “I’m Ric Flair! The Stylin’, profilin’, limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin’ n’ dealin’ son of a gun!” and then got on a bus with like 30 other dudes and went to a 2000 seat stadium in the wop wops to put on a wrestling show for like, $75 a night.
Of course, I’m not surprised that people have lost the ability to tell reality from fiction, we’re a society of people who eat Tide Pods. And I’ve regularly seen social media users, specifically Tumblr users, accuse writers of fiction of being racist or sexist for having racist or sexist characters in their novels, even when those characters are portrayed as being villains or overcoming their prejudices and learning a lesson about how everyone is equal.
James Franco is accused of on-set sexual misconduct, specifically removing the protective covering from actresses’ vaginas during sex scenes. That’s a serious charge and it should be addressed. But Franco doesn’t need to answer for things he made up in a fictional novel, that, even if they’re true, is just him having sex with a bunch of college students who want to have sex with him because he’s James Franco. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t become a crime to have consensual sex with someone of legal age just because you’re famous.
Oh Florida, you’re by far our worst state. From drunk ladies pleasuring themselves on their arresting officers to sign language interpreters talking about pizza bear monsters, every story we hear about you makes us not want to go Florida. Also, Donald Trump spends all his time there. Basically, ever since Mia Khalifa moved back to Texas, there’s no reason to set foot in Florida.
If you needed another reason to avoid Florida, well, what if I told you it’s teeming with monkeys infected with a deadly strain of herpes? Yes, not only are there feral monkeys running around Florida, but they’re carrying a communicable disease that’s harmless to them but potentially deadly to humans, which sounds both very bad and very familiar.
After the initial [Herpes B] infection, the virus hides out in the animal’s nerves, flaring up only when the monkey gets sick or stressed. When it does, the monkey can become contagious, secreting the virus in its spit, pee, or poop. That’s how the virus can spread to people. In humans, herpes B causes a devastating brain disease that the CDC says is deadly about 70 percent of the time — especially without treatment.
Okay, so these little monkeys are running around and spreading Herpes, and they’re an invasive species, not native to Florida. Clearly we can do what it is we do with harmful, invasive species and remove them from the environment, right?
By 2012, 1,000 rhesus macaques had been trapped and removed before public outcry stopped the control effort. (People sure love furry, feral, ecosystem-endangering mammals.) At last count in 2015, some 175 macaques were living in Silver Springs State Park.
See, this is why everyone hates you, Florida. But I guess it’s not like they’re choosing to save this dangerous, disease-ridden animal over keeping their own children safe, right?
The wild monkeys also poop everywhere, Wisely says, so there could be plenty of chances for exposure that way. “To be honest with you, we found feces on children’s slides, and in the playground,” she says.
Yeah, okay, Florida. We keep giving you second chances and you keep disappointing us. It’s like your state is a movie based on a DC Comics property. South America, take it away.
Mariah Carey is thirsty. And the only thing that can quench her thirst is Game of Thrones spoilers.
At a Golden Globes party, Carey was all over Kit Harrington, hoping for Game of Thrones spoilers. No word if she was able to coax it out of.
According to onlookers, Carey was wearing a low cut dress, touching Harrington’s arm, and generally being Mariah Carey. Harrington, of course, is engaged to Rose Lelsie and probably wanted nothing to do with Mariah.
Mariah is a big Game of Thrones fan, which isn’t really news. Everyone is a big Game of Thrones fan. Except for me. There is way too much going on in that show.
Here’s what an onlooker told The Sun:
“Kit kept glancing around as if he couldn’t believe it. Everyone in the whole party was looking over at them.
“Mariah is clearly a huge Game Of Thrones fan because she wouldn’t let him go. She was all over him.”
Harrington was glancing around because he was wondering why this lady was left unattended from the retirement home.
Mariah is dating Bryan Tanaka. So, maybe, Carey was just looking for spoilers. She knows there are books, right?
Granted, George R. R. Martin won’t finish that book for another five years. Maybe she should cozy up to him instead of Kit Harrington.
In the end, it doesn’t look like there is much to see here. Carey desperately wanted spoilers like she desperately wants attention and Harrington probably gave her an autograph so she would go away. Watch the show like the rest of us, Mariah. This isn’t the 90s. You’re not special enough to get spoilers.
According to PEOPLE, Jolie has no interest in dating. Here’s what a source told the magazine:
“She isn’t dating anyone and won’t be for a very long time. She is focused on her children and their needs.”
Good for her. Bad for any guy who was hoping to date Angelina Jolie. Not that any of you had a chance anyway.
Jolie has six kids and they have plenty of needs. Here’s what she told PEOPLE about raising her kids:
“I have had my ups and downs. I guess I am a little bit stronger. We all have our difficult times, but as a mother you also have a responsibility first and foremost towards the kids. They are going through their formative years and everything else comes second to that.”
And here’s what she told Sunday Telegraph:
“Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together. But really I am just trying to get through my days. I don’t enjoy being single. It’s not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.”
Shouts to Angelina for being a good mother and putting her kids first. She’s not dating. She’s barely making movies. She’s putting her kids first.
There’s no fun in discussing a single mother raising six kids. She’s just being responsible. Jolie is 42-years-old. Her wild days are behind her. No more bad tattoos and no crazy drunken nights. Just school work and meal planning.
If she does need help and hates being single that much. I’m sure many will men would be willing to slide into her DMs.
Let’s pour one out for the ol’ Angelina Jolie and welcome the old Angelina Jolie.

Michael Rosenberg is reportedly out!
Apparently, Tonya Harding's longtime representative quit this week after the two couldn't reach an agreement on what the press can and cannot ask the former figure skater.
According to a Facebook post reportedly from Rosenberg's page and shared via Olympic reporters Christine Brennan and Philip Hersh, Harding blocked journalists from "asking her anything ‘about the past' or they will be fined $25,000."
That's a bit difficult when, you know, you're famous because of things that happened over 20 years ago, and there's an Awards movie out about it...
"Unfortunately, we reached an impasse today regarding how to treat the press in the future. Her [Harding's] adamant and final position is that reporters must sign an affidavit stating that they won't ask her anything ‘about the past' or they will be fined $25,000. Obviously, it doesn't work that way; and therefore I've chosen to terminate our business relationship."
