Kody Brown said the quiet part out loud on Sister Wives this week.
On every episode of this TLC series in 2020, the horny patriarch has come across like a selfish jerk.
Heck, Kody made one of his spouses cry last week by continuing to push the idea of everyone living under one roof in Arizona, despite clear and understandable objections to the proposal.
But the insensitive realiity star plummeted to a new low on Sunday night.
Kody confessed that he wants all his Sister Wives to be miserable.
“When I was younger, it used to be a lot of pleasure to me when I’d see my wives goofing off and playing and having fun together. I’m jaded, I guess,” the 51-year old explained.
He then continued as follows, admitting that even he — the most famous polygamist on television — doesn’t like being married to multiple women.
“I just don’t see plural marriage in the same light that I used to.
“I’m struggling with plural marriage and I’m struggling with my wives and I’m struggling with their conflict.
“We’re at a stage in our lives now where were far apart and we’re struggling with getting along.”
To be clear, all that’s really happening here is that Kody has an idea (to build a large home in which everyone can reside) and neither Robyn nor Meri nor Christine nor Janelle is on board.
That’s pretty much it.
So all it takes is a little bit of dissension in the ranks and Kody can’t handle.
His true colors just come pouring out.
While Kody said all this on the episode, he was watching the four women making snow angels together and saying that he’s “cynical.”
He ought to be thrilled to see the Sister Wives getting along so well, right?
Especially since together they share 18 children and the entire point of plural marriage is to create one giant happy famiily…
That’s how someone with a heart would feel at least, you know?
“We did an entire discussion about one home and I think there’s a tendency, especially with my presentation of this one house idea, where there’s sort of a loyalty bond that they get with each there,” Kody tried to explain.
Brown then stuck his foot into his mouth into deeper, coming right out and admiitting he can’t handle when the spouses don’t just acquiesce to his every demand:
“It’s me or them. [For example,] ‘Well, my sister wife doesn’t like this one house idea, so I’m gonna side with her instead of my husband.’”
Throughout Season 9, Meri has also been very open about the struggles of having a plural family, even revealing that she nearly was kicked out of her rental home because of her romantic lifestyle.
Robyn, meanwhile, recently supported Christine when she spoke out against Kody, proving that he’s not paranoid at least.
The Sister Wives really do seem to be bonding over their issues with their husband these days.
How dare they think on their own, right?!?

The lineup for Electric Daisy Carnival 2020 was released on Thursday during a live stream where listeners had to match the song played to the DJ performing.
But, if you could wait until Friday, Insomniac released the full lineup on their site. That’s 236+ acts!
EDC takes place over the course of 3 nights, Friday to Sunday, at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This year they’ve opened up the entire Speedway so there’ll be slightly more space to dance around. Slightly. If you’re a fan of the music, you could probably take a quick glance at the list of performers and decide which day is the best for you. But, what if you wanted to know, through cold, hard data, which day is actually the best? Why, you ask? Maybe you only want to go for a day or two and you want to know which days will get you your money’s worth. Maybe you want to see how Insomniac stacked the lineup. Maybe you want to try and predict the day with the least amount of people. Maybe you want to know which day will be the most . Or maybe you have nothing better to do like me.
So how do we go about figuring out if Friday, Saturday or Sunday will have the most drawing power? I decided on the most subjective and error-prone method possible. By using arbitrary rankings from two DJ ranking websites. TheDJList based in the US and DJRankings based in Japan. Why these two? Look, I’m not some scientist trying to cure cancer and these two had a decent way to search artists. Plus, the idea was to keep it simple in that I could use both these sites as a proxy for DJ popularity. This isn’t something you’d want to use for hard hitting analysis, but it’s a fun way to look at it.
I started by grabbing a list of the artists and separating them into which day they were performing. Then I went through each artist to get their ranking from both of those sites. For any artist that didn’t exist in their database, I would enter their rank as the lowest rank + 1 in each list I was checking. For example, in DJRankings, the lowest ranked DJ was ranked at 31,322. For any DJ that didn’t exist in the DJRankings database, their rank would be entered as 31,323. The same was true for TheDJList. The lowest ranked artist was at 38,771. Any DJ I couldn’t find in their DB, I ranked as 38,772. The assumption was they weren’t popular enough to rank. For B2B sets, I simply averaged their rank. After taking the average of all the ranks, the data ended up like this. Lower is better in this case.
|TheDJList average rank|
|Saturday||12673||5% difference from Friday|
|Sunday||16192||25% difference from Friday|
|DJRankings average rank|
|Saturday||20487||20% difference from Friday|
|Sunday||19003||14% difference from Friday|
Both TheDJList and DJRankings are telling me Friday is definitely going to be the most popular day. About 5% and 20%, respectively, more popular than Saturday and 25% and 14%, respectively, more popular than Sunday. What’s interesting, however, is that these 2 sites differ on the next most popular day. One says Saturday and another says Sunday.
In fact, according to TheDJList, Friday and Saturday are somewhat statistically even while Sunday isn’t even close.
DJRankings is a little different. For that site, Friday is by far the most popular with Sunday being the next most popular. But, Saturday and Sunday aren’t too far off in popularity.
What could be the reason? DJRankings seemed to favor more European artists while TheDJList was definitely more American focused. At least that was my feeling when looking at which genres were more popular during my searches. Which makes sense considering EDC is an American festival. Then again, it’s unclear how often these sites are updated. TheDJList had far more artists in their database than DJRankings.
Maybe we can cancel out some bias by just averaging their rankings? When we do that we get
|Average rank from TheDJList & DJRankings|
|Saturday||16580||14% difference from Friday|
|Sunday||17598||19% difference from Friday|
This falls more in line with a ranking that’s to be expected. Friday being the biggest day as the event tapers down towards Sunday. But wait, what about B2B sets? Aren’t those kind of rare and special for EDC? I wanted to see if they made a difference, so for every B2B set, I boosted their rankings by 1.5x. Nope, not much difference there.
|B2B Average of both sites|
|Saturday||16265||14% difference from Friday|
|Sunday||17359||19% difference from Friday|
But wait, there’s another pretty popular yet still arbitrary ranking list out there called the DJ Mag Top 100. Would that make any difference? What if I gave artists who were on that list a 2x multiplier? And if I gave a B2B performance that had 2 artists on that list a 4x multiplier?
|DJ Mag Top 100 Multiplier|
|Saturday||18796||23% difference from Friday|
|Sunday||17599||18% difference from Friday|
Things do switch up a bit. Friday is still the more popular day while Sunday inches back to the second most popular day. 7% isn’t much of a difference between Saturday and Sunday, however. You can probably argue that in this case, Saturday and Sunday are pretty much the same. Even though the DJ Mag Top 100 isn’t taken seriously anymore, this does show it still has some effect on popularity. Well, that and there are only 28 out of 236 artists performing on EDC that are on that list.
As I mentioned before, there were a lot of artists who didn’t show up during my searches. So, is there some other data point that could act as a proxy for popularity? Hey, what about SoundCloud followers? Around 99% of artists performing at EDC have a SoundCloud and we can easily get an estimation of their followers. What does the average SoundCloud follower count per day look like when we do that?
In this analysis, if someone had no SoundCloud, they would be zeroed out. B2Bs would be averaged. The higher the numbers, the better.
|Saturday||183978||57% difference from Friday, 41% difference from Sunday|
|Sunday||308791||28% difference from Friday|
The numbers tell a slightly different story again. Once again, Friday is the most popular day. However, by average follower count, Saturday is the least popular day by far. There is a staggering 57% difference between Friday and Saturday. Almost twice as much as the website rankings. Even between Sunday and Saturday there is a 41% difference. That’s pretty huge. Applying the B2B and DJ Mag multipliers to SoundCloud didn’t make much of a difference either.
What accounts for this huge differential? Tentpole performers. Friday and Saturday are loaded with artists with huge follow counts which brings up the average. You can see how Insomniac purposely or innocuously front loaded Friday. Maybe because of scheduling conflicts? On Saturday, there are only two artists with over 1 million followers.
|DIPLO B2B MK||3,717,000|
|AFROJACK B2B R3HAB||2,730,000|
What does all this data mean? It’s pretty safe to say that Friday will be the day to go if you’re looking for the more popular acts. It doesn’t matter whether you’re from the US or coming internationally. Saturday and Sunday are a toss-up. If you’re from the US, it seems more likely you’ll prefer Saturday. If you like older, big name artists or if you’re international, maybe you’d enjoy Sunday more.
Of course, the best way to tell is to look at the acts and figure out who you like. And also don’t forget this doesn’t take into account genre preferences, surprise acts, art car appearances, time conflicts, stages or a lot of other variables. Keep in mind as well I’m not a data analyst and a lot of what I calculated and interpreted could be very wrong. A lot of these data points are subjective as well such as the rankings from each of those sites, which, again, were vastly different at times.
It’d be interesting to run some analysis again when they release a set list of who’s on which stage to answer the question of, if you were to stay at one stage, which would it be? And a post event analysis of which day attendees thought was better to validate or invalidate these findings.
In the end, however, you should just go to this damn festival and have a good time.

Just days ago, Tamra Judge’s ex-husband Simon Barney revealed his Stage 3 throat cancer diagnosis. The news is grim, but still hopeful.
Tamra has known for months, and she says that it even played a role in her decision to quit The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Tamra Judge has opened up to People about how her ex-husband’s cancer battle influenced her decision to quit The Real Housewives of Orange County.
“It made me reevaluate my life,” she says of learning Simon’s serious diagnosis of Stage 3 throat cancer.
“Simon had told me about his health back in November,” Tamra reveals, “and I was completely destroyed.”
“I was a mess!” she characterizes.
Tamra explains the scope of her horror: “This is the father of my children.”
“Any ill will between the two us just vanished,” she expresses.
“My first thought was, ‘I don’t want to take my kids to their dad’s funeral,'” Tamra bluntly shares.
She adds: “And my second was, ‘I don’t want to go back to the show.’”
“The reality of it is, after Eddie’s heart condition and now Simon with cancer,” Tamra begins to explain.
She continues: ‘It’s just very hard for me to want to go on a show.”
At least, Tamra details, a show “where people are screaming and yelling and arguing about things that don’t even matter.”
“They’ve taught me that life is precious,” she says, “and you don’t get that time back.”
“I thought, I’ll be the first Housewife to go and be like, ‘This is my last year, I won’t be back.’ Because I was really done,” Tamra shares.
“But I ran it by a few people close to me,” she explains.
These were folks “who said, ‘Don’t do that right now because you’re emotional and you don’t know how you’re going to be feeling in a few months.'”
“So I agreed,” Tamra says, with regard to responding to the excellent advice. “I might have just been reacting too quickly.”
“You can tell my behavior at the reunion was very subdued,” Tamra cites as evidence.
“I didn’t want to fight with anybody,” she admits. “My mind was not there at all.”
“I hadn’t told production about Simon,” Tamra notes, “so they didn’t fully understand what was wrong with me.”
“But,” Tamra reveals, “I told [costar Shannon Beador], ‘I feel like this is my last season.’”
“In my gut, I knew I wouldn’t come back,” Tamra states.
“I was a wreck,” she characterizes.
“Everyone knew something was going on with me,” she admits.
Tamra adds: “But I wasn’t telling anyone because Simon had asked me not to.”
“I just wanted to get away from the show and get away from the press and get home to my family,” Tamra recalls.
“I’ve grown close with his fiancee [Catushia Ienni],” she announces.
“It makes me happy Simon has someone like her who can take care of him from day to day,” Tamra expresses.
“And we’re all our talking with our kids again,” she says, “after the estrangement.”
“We’ve all rallied together to be there for Simon and make sure he has the support he needs,” Tamra says.
She poured herself into that, even though it was a favor in her losing her job.
“They wanted to know what I’d be up to,” Tamra says of Bravo when they offered her the three-episode arc in lieu of full Housewife status.
“And knowing Simon didn’t want me to talk about it,” she explains, “I told them I had a lot going on in my life that I wouldn’t be able to film.”
Tamra recounts: “I said to them that it was going to be hard for me to film all the time.”
She told them that “and that I didn’t know how much of a commitment I could put into filming.”
“Because in my mind,” Tamra explains, “I knew there was going to be a phone call during filming where someone needed me.”
“Where Simon was in the hospital, or one of my kids were upset,” she elaborates, “and I’d need to handle all that stuff, away from the cameras.”
So why didn’t Tamra just come right out and tell Bravo “actually, I’ll pass on Season 15” before they made her the insulting lowball offer?
“I wanted to,” she admits, “but this was my job for the past 12 years.”
“I was helping support my family with that income,” Tamra notes.
“And God forbid, if Simon doesn’t make it?” she grimly wonders. “I just wasn’t strong enough to just walk away.”
“It was very difficult for me,” Tamra expresses. “For three weeks, I was a f—ing mess. I cried every single day.”
“And then they called and scheduled a production meeting for a few weeks before filming,” she recalls.
Tamra adds: “And I thought, ‘There’s no way I’m going to be able to go back to this show and keep this a secret.'”
“‘There’s no way I could just film as if nothing’s wrong,'” she shares. “So I just prayed and prayed and prayed for divine intervention.”
Tamra characterizes her thoughts during the dilemma: “I was like, ‘God, please make this decision for me.’”
“Those three episodes wouldn’t make any sense to me because I am very much a person who is very honest on the show,” she says of the 3-episode offer.
“At the time,” she explains, “Simon did not want to come forward with it, so I could not talk about it.”
“It didn’t make any sense for me to be like, ‘I’m sorry, I’ve been very busy now, gotta go,’ because it would be a lie,” Tamra admits.
“I just knew there would be no way to get around it,” she concludes. “I couldn’t go back and be myself. I couldn’t be honest. I couldn’t be real.“

When you run for President, it’s pretty likely that all the skeletons in your closet will come out. Sometimes, like Bernie Sanders, your opponents will spend half a decade claiming you haven’t been properly better because no matter how much they dig into your past, the worst thing they find is that you were poor and didn’t support CIA death squads, Other times, like Donald Trump, it comes out that you were friends with an infamous pedophile sex trafficker, have been accused of sexual misconduct by scores of women and are constantly talking about how much you want to fuck your own daughter in old interviews. It turns out that Mike Bloomberg is very much the second kind of politician.
You can see for yourself what Bloomberg said in a 1999 Wired article profiling him all the way back when he was just ruining the news as opposed to New York City and potentially the country.
“My daughter is tall and busty and blonde,” Michael Bloomberg is telling a table of Boston College graduates. “We went to China together. And what’s a 16-year-old going to do on a business trip?” He pops another carefully buttered piece of bread in his mouth. “So I got her dates in every city in China.” Remembering that I’m also at the table, he glares in my direction. “That’s off the record!” he barks. It’s typical Mike Bloomberg, wanting to have it both ways: imperious man of the people, coarse billionaire, earthy business leader, accessible control freak.
What is it with these billionaires who were in Jeffery Epstein’s black book and talking about how fuckable their daughters are. Is that just the only depraved thing you can’t actually get away with when you have that ungodly amount of money?
Some people are so irrationally afraid of Donald Trump that they’re willing to elect a guy who is just like him but in a different hat, right down to the creepy comments about his daughter.
Donald Trump is going to absolutely eviscerate this guy if he convinces the DNC to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders, and this Wired article illustrates one of the reasons. It describes Bloomberg as being “a trim 5’9”.” Bloomberg currently lists his height as 5’8”, but he was positioned next to Elizabeth Warren at the Nevada debate this past Wednesday and when she was eviscerating him over the sexual harassment complaints files against him, you could tell he was several inches shorter than the 5’8” Warren. This is a dude who is probably 5’6” and really self-conscious about it, and Donald Trump has already figured that out.
Mini Mike is a 5’4” mass of dead energy who does not want to be on the debate stage with these professional politicians. No boxes please. He hates Crazy Bernie and will, with enough money, possibly stop him. Bernie’s people will go nuts!

I mean, I’m no fan of Donald Trump, but these are some of the best tweets anyone has ever made on Twitter (non-dril division).
The post Mike Bloomberg Was Super Proud of Getting His 16-Year-Old Daughter Laid All Over China appeared first on The Blemish.
If your dad is Steven Spielberg, you can pretty much get any job you want in Hollywood. I mean, John Landis was arrested for manslaughter and his dumbass kid got six scripts produced and got to make the worst adaptation of a Douglas Adams book ever. Spielberg is Hollywood royalty and because Hollywood’s so absolutely rife with nepotism and favoritism, any of his kids could get any project they wanted green light by any studio tomorrow.
So it’s somewhat surprising that his daughter has decided her future is in porn, but that’s what Mikaela Spielberg told The Sun she’s doing.
Mikaela, who speaks to her parents regularly, broke the news to them via FaceTime at the weekend and said they were “intrigued” but “not upset”.
Describing herself as a “sexual creature” she told The Sun: “I got really tired of not being able to capitalize on my body and frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body.
Look, I’m very pro sex worker, and not in a snarky joke way; if that is how someone wants to earn a living then they should be allowed to and they should be safe doing it. It’s a respectable job, it’s not like she wants to be a Wall Street banker or something.
But I think we know what is going on here. The most likely answer is that she is just a terrible actress. Have you seen The Godfather Part III? Do you remember how just dogshit awful of an actress Sofia Coppola was in it? Mikaela Spielberg has to be even worse than that.
Mikela’s career as a porn star isn’t off to a great start; she’s made her Instagram private in the wake of her interview with The Sun and she says her OnlyFans is “not set up yet.” Hard to be a shy porn star, especially in today’s market where you’re basically hand-selling yourself on social media.
If you remember when Kanye West first started dating Kim Kardashian, you’ll recall he just would not shut up about how beautiful and sexy she was and how much he loves her and she was absolutely not a hobbit.
Now, after six years of marriage, Kanye wouldn’t even kiss Kim on the kiss cam at the NBA All-Star game.
Yikes, that is just so awkward. I have two theories on what happened here.
the first one is that Kanye is so off in his own world and up his own asshole that when he saw a camera he literally forgot other people exist for a second. It seems likely, if you see the way he mugs for the camera and then smiles when Kim kisses him on the cheek.
My other theory is that Kanye has worms in his brain since he converted to Christianity and those worms told him that public displays of affection are sinful. Kanye has recently been on a kick of saying Kim, who is famous because he mom convinced her to sell a sex tape, dresses too sexy. If you want to put your wife in a burqa, you’re probably not going to want people to see you kiss her. Converts to religions are always the ones who take that shot way too far. No one becomes a Christian as an adult to only go to mass on Easter and Christmas.
