Michael Avenatti at arrivals for 2018 MT...

As many of you will remember, I used to like Michael Avenatti. I didn’t think he was the savior of American democracy or anything, but he seemed to be interesting and woke and his work as Stormy Daniels’ lawyer was good. Because of Avenatti, Michael Cohen’s office was raided by the FBI, and several big dominoes fell in the march towards impeaching Donald Trump. Unfortunately, Avenatti’s good press went to his head. He started talking seriously about running for president, and he bad-mouthed every Democrat, and a lot more. The final nail in his coffin was probably when he was outed as a liar in the weeks following Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation – it turns out, Avenatti likely falsified big chunks of his clients’ claims against Kavanaugh.

Now, all that being said, even though I think Democrats canceled Avenatti months ago, the Republican Party is still terrified of him. Donald Trump is still a cheesed-ck coward who thinks he can bully people around. And I’m actually really suspicious about this story that broke last night. At first, TMZ broke the news that Avenatti had been arrested Wednesday on a charge of felony domestic violence. The incident happened on Tuesday night, in the “Century City area of L.A.” And:

We’re told Wednesday afternoon the woman was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, sobbing and screaming on the phone, “I can’t believe you did this to me. I’m going to get a restraining order against you.” We’re told security brought her inside the building, took her upstairs and Michael showed up 5 minutes later, ran into the building. He screamed repeatedly, “She hit me first.” We’re told he angrily added, “This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***.” We’re told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access.

Cops showed up and escorted Avenatti into a corner of the apartment lobby and spoke with him for 5 to 10 minutes and then took him into custody. A law enforcement source says on Tuesday, Avenatti “kicked her out of the apartment” and that’s when the alleged domestic violence occurred. We’re told she went back to the apartment on Wednesday to retrieve her belongings and called police to stand by in case things got heated.

[From TMZ]

TMZ also initially reported that the woman was Avenatti’s wife (estranged wife), but they later changed their story when her lawyer came out and said unequivocally that Avenatti had never abused his client and that TMZ got it wrong. Avenatti made a statement too:

Avenatti, who was released on $50,000 bail, denied any allegation of abuse or violence, first in a statement through his law office, and again outside after his release.

“I wish to thank the hard working men and woman of the LAPD for their professionalism they were only doing their jobs in light of the completely bogus allegations against me,” he said in the statement. “I have never been physically abusive in my life nor was I last night. Any accusations to the contrary are fabricated and meant to do harm to my reputation. I look forward to being fully exonerated.” Speaking to reporters outside an LAPD station, he reiterated that he looked forward to a full investigation. “I have never struck a woman. I never will strike a woman,” he said. “I am not going to be intimidated from stopping what I am doing.”

[From Buzzfeed]

TMZ later corrected their story and said that their “source” claimed the woman in question was Avenatti’s estranged wife. I wonder who their source was. I mean… domestic violence is a terrible thing and of course I hope everything is fine with this woman. But I also think this whole story – including the way the story broke – is sketchy as hell. It would also be completely in line with the Deplorables’ new tactic of trying to use the language of Me Too and “believe every woman” against their enemies.

I don’t think this is going to be breaking news to anyone here but Rob Kardashian is broke, according to Rob Kardashian. I know, who would’ve have guessed that ‘sock designer’ wouldn’t catapult a person into the stratosphere? But alas, between his personal trials and his sock designs failing to set the world on fire, Rob is struggling financially. And that sucks because he has a daughter, Dream, to support. Speaking of that, Rob and his former fiancée, Blac Chyna, are due in court in December to discuss child support. Rob currently pays $20,000 a month. Not surprisingly, Rob is claiming that he does not have the money to make these payments any longer.

Financial woes forced Rob Kardashian to move back in with his mother, Kris Jenner, according to child support documents obtained by Us Weekly.

Kardashian, 31, stated in a newly unearthed February 22 court declaration that he has “minimal cash flow and no savings.” He said his monthly income has decreased approximately $90,000 since he and ex-fiancée Blac Chyna reached a child support agreement in October 2017 over their 2-year-old daughter, Dream. He added that his current income is “insufficient” to pay his expenses, which include $20,000-per-month payments to Chyna, 30.

“As of January 17, 2018, I am short nearly $300,000, which my accountant projects I will need to pay for my 2017 tax liabilities,” the former reality star said in the February documents. “I no longer own a home. I now live in my mother’s home.”

Kardashian said in his declaration that he hoped his Arthur George sock line “would grow and that my earnings would increase,” but the opposite happened. He acknowledged that he no longer owns 100 percent of his company as momager Jenner, 63, had to step in “with capital to keep it afloat.” She now has a “50 percent share in the company,” he noted.

[From Us]

So Rob couldn’t hold on to his business and had to sell half of it. And he is also unable to film KUWTK full time, which means less income. Of course, if his income is dramatically decreased, he can get his support payments decreased. Shocking this all comes out just a few weeks before the court date to review that support. But it’s Kris’ involvement that really casts a shadow over all this. To cure his financial strife, Rob is forced to sell business shares, which he sold to his mom. Plus he had to sell his house so he moved in with *check notes* his mom. I’m having a hard time mustering up any sympathy over his living situation since Kris has a fully staffed household and it’s big enough that I’m sure Rob doesn’t even have to see her if he doesn’t want to. Blac Chyna, for her part, is not having any of this. She’s posting IG’s of her personal wealth to remind people she doesn’t need Rob’s money.

I do genuinely think Rob’s been through a lot of emotional stress and that it’s taken its toll on his mental and physical well-being. But I think he’s letting Kris call all the shots here and I don’t think that’s the best thing for him. Not only did she keep his business – and any money it might actually be making – in the family, she’s got Rob living under her roof again, right back where she’s wanted him.

On his 70th Birthday The Prince of Wales poses for a portrait with the Duchess of Cornwall before heading to his birthday party at Buckingham Palace tonight pic.twitter.com/HNEN7KH3wM

— Chris Jackson (@ChrisJack_Getty) November 14, 2018

The Prince of Wales celebrated his 70th birthday yesterday. Last night, in London, there was a big blowout party at Buckingham Palace, hosted by the Queen. Everybody came out for it – William and Kate, Harry and Meghan and… I’m assuming Charles’ siblings were there too. Strictly black tie! The Queen made a toast to Charles and we know some of what she said to him:

The Queen tonight paid a warm tribute to her son as she toasted Prince Charles’s 70th birthday. Speaking at a private family party at Buckingham Palace, the monarch spoke of what a ‘privilege’ it was for her, as a mother, to honour him on such a momentous occasion. It is understood that Charles was ‘deeply touched’ by his mother’s words which, in a family not known for its public pronouncements of love and affection, was almost unprecedented.

Raising a glass at the black tie dinner, the Queen said: ‘It is a privilege for any mother to be able to propose a toast to her son on his 70th birthday. It means that you have lived long enough to see your child grow up. It is rather like —to use an analogy I am certain will find favour — planting a tree and being able to watch it grow. My mother saw me turn 70, of course. And she was heard to observe that 70 is exactly the age when the number of candles on your cake finally exceeds the amount of breath you have to blow them out.

‘Over his 70 years, Philip and I have seen Charles become a champion of conservation and the arts, a great charitable leader — a dedicated and respected heir to the throne to stand comparison with any in history — and a wonderful father. Most of all, sustained by his wife Camilla, he is his own man, passionate and creative. So this toast is to wish a happy birthday to my son, in every respect a duchy original. To you Charles. To the Prince of Wales.’

[From The Daily Mail]

What a lovely speech! I enjoy the reference to a “duchy original,” which is Charles’ line of organic food, and I love how warm this speech felt. Still, British peeps gonna British, so I guess a mother can’t say “I love you, darling” on her son’s birthday.

Some photos of the Duchesses and Dukes arriving for the party. Kate wore PINK and her big costume-jewelry earrings (we’ve seen them before). Meghan wore black, I think.

Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp take a romantic stroll in NYC

I guess I should clarify something for newish Celebitchy readers about the fact that I called Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp’s romance “crusty love.” I’ve literally done that since the beginning of their relationship circa 2011. “Crusty” is not an ageist pejorative, or at least I don’t mean it that way. I always meant it as in… he, specifically, looks crusty. He always looks rumbled and unkempt, like he just rolled out of bed and grabbed his pack of cigarettes without even bothering to clean up his eye boogers. Together with Meg, they just always gave off similarly rumpled vibes. Anyway, they were on-and-off crusty lovers for seven years, and they recently announced their engagement. So it’s time for People Magazine to try to make this engagement sound fated and romantic, like it doesn’t involve a healthy dose of eye boogs.

Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp have always been ultra-private about their on and off-again relationship over the past seven years, but they were happy to share the good news that they’re engaged.

“John and Meg are a great combination,” a source close to the rocker tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. Adds an entertainment insider: “They relate on many levels. John loves her intellect, personality and sense of humor. Meg is in awe of his talent.”

This will be the second marriage for Ryan, 57, who was wed to actor Dennis Quaid for 10 years (and shares a son, Jack, 26), and the fourth for Mellencamp, 67, who has five kids from his three previous marriages. The couple began dating in 2011, after Mellencamp ended his 18-year marriage to model Elaine Irwin, despite Ryan living in New York City with her daughter Daisy, 14, whom she adopted in 2006, and Mellencamp preferring to stay in his home state of Indiana.

The two called it quits in August 2014 primarily because of the long-distance and Mellencamp dated Christie Brinkley for a year. Now with wedding plans likely underway, it remains to be seen where the couple will call home. “They have different lifestyles but they’re busy enough to be able to handle their differences,” adds the entertainment source. “They are old enough to know what they want.”

[From People]

Real talk: I also think they’re old enough to know what they want, just as I think they’re old enough to be set in their ways (crustily so, if you will). Neither of them wants to change much for the other, which is why they broke up in 2014 – she wanted to be in New York, he wanted to be Indiana. Getting engaged doesn’t change that! There are still the same old issues as before. So while they’re old enough to know what they want, I kind of think they’re too old to just cross their fingers and hope all of their issues magically disappear when they get engaged.

Gwen Stefani hits the studio for rehearsal in Burbank

For more than a year, we’ve been hearing about Jennifer Aniston’s passion project, bringing the book Dumplin’ to the screen. Jennifer and Danielle Macdonald filmed this in late summer 2017, and everybody seemed low-key excited about it. Now that the trailer is here, I can see why there’s a buzz around this. It looks like a great feel-good story about knowing your worth and body image and your parents’ expectations and making your own path. The screenplay was adapted from Julie Murphy’s book, and it was adapted by Kristin Hahn, Aniston’s long time friend and business partner. Aniston plays the “pageant mom,” or more like a mom who is obsessed with reliving her glory days as a beauty queen. You might know Danielle Macdonald from the indie film Patty Cake$. Here’s the trailer:

As I said, I understand the buzz now. It looks really good. Jennifer seems well-suited for the role, and Danielle Macdonald is super-talented. My one qualm is that I hate Hollywood’s fake Southern accents. Very few Southerns actually sound like Hollywood’s version of Southern. Aniston’s accent sounds hokey to me in this trailer, but maybe it’s more cohesive throughout the film. Also: I totally love the “bigger girl finds love, acceptance, peace” movies and stories. Too many stories are about slender, conventionally pretty girls daring to find love and happiness.

Last thing: this was produced by Netflix, so it’s going to have a limited theatrical run for the awards season, but most people will just watch it on Netflix when it comes out in December. I wonder if they are positioning this for awards? It feels like it’s coming out too late to be a legit contender for the Comedy awards at the Golden Globes.

Just yesterday I was talking to an online ad company exec about the fact that there are still companies who refuse to put advertisements on sites with too many “political” keywords. The example she gave was predictable, Land ‘O Lakes (boycott that company), and she cited the fact that Nike took a stand as a powerful example for other brands. She said that it would be ridiculous if brand decisions led to online censorship, that we may lose a little advertising by taking a definitive stand, but that it should not influence how or what we write. My position, as always, is that there is no other choice when it comes to good vs. evil. It’s not politics anymore it’s basic human decency. We block all ads from Republicans and we’re not tiptoeing around anything. So it’s notable when brands celebrate diversity and inclusivity at a time when the President is demonizing and imprisoning immigrants and children.

Skyy Vodka’s new “proudly American” commercials starring John Cena are frankly wonderful. No one paid me to say this, although if Skyy wants to send some samples over to Hecate’s house they’re welcome. (Kaiser and I don’t drink anymore. Corey is retired now after switching day jobs but she would probably appreciate some vodka too.) I’m sorry I missed their earlier commercials featuring RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars winner Trixie Mattel. She was their brand rep before John Cena and is still featured. Cena’s new commercials are awesome and cute. I don’t underestimate the nerve required to create these type of ads, but it’s also smart business sense. Skyy’s new commercials are especially smart and subversive because they shut down criticism by showing that embracing and standing up for gay rights and immigrants’ rights is inherently American. *raises fist* Plus there’s a lot of patriotism, and who can argue with that?

Here’s the first commercial, a celebration of freedom and the Statue of Liberty, 90s boy band style. I really enjoyed this.

Another one in which Cena says he pledges allegiance to the American dream, women argue in Spanish over pineapple on pizza, Cena runs in a “fun run” that’s diverse and colorful, reminiscent of a pride march, and Trixie Mattel gets her makeup on.

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve had Skyy, but that used to be my vodka of choice along with flavored Pinnacle. It’s highly filtered so it may prevent hangovers. (At least I’ve heard anecdotal evidence claiming that, I can’t remember too much about my own experiences with it.) I would definitely be buying it if I still drank. Take note ad agencies and companies. We will give you free advertising, your commercials will go viral and more people will buy your products if you come out clearly on the good side. If you don’t, if you support this administration, we will talk about it and we will boycott you.

Help people affected by the #CaliforniaFire by visiting https://t.co/5Dmboe4Eb9 call 1-800-RED-CROSS or text CAWILDFIRES to 90999 to make $10 donation. Includes shelter,food,water,physical and mental health resources as well as emotional support. pic.twitter.com/chritdoN9t

Firefighters and first responders are working around the clock on the California fires and in the shelters for both humans and animals. Pretty much anyone who calls themselves a Californian or inhabitant wishes they could do so much more to help. Most businesses allow you to add a donation on to your purchase price that helps with fire recovery. Many of us have taken bags of clothes, books, games and personal items to various drop off points. Most donate online. And those who can, go the extra step, which is awesome. Lady Gaga was evacuated from her home due to the Woosley Fire in Malibu. She didn’t lose her home, thank goodness. Because Tuesday was World Kindness Day, a day that Gaga says is her favorite or the year, she appealed to everyone on Twitter to perform one act of kindness. And then she led by example. Gaga personally delivered pizza, coffee and gift cards to various evacuation shelters across LA.

50 people have been killed in the three fires. They just found another body in Agoura Hills yesterday. So many Californians are displaced and don’t know if they will have a home to go back to. Honestly, I don’t care what Gaga’s motivation was in doing this. I think she’s probably a caring person who was deeply affected by these horrific fires and wanted to give back. But even if this is all a calculated move to put her atop the Oscar list, she’s helping people who deserve it so I’m giving her props. This was amazing and I think more of Gaga for doing it.

We talked about Sandra Bullock the other day but some others that deserve a shoutout are Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. Miley and Liam lost their home. In response, they co-founded The Malibu Foundation that is designed to assist with youth homelessness, with a focus on LGTBQ. The couple also donated half a million dollars of their own to the foundation.

You know what, sometimes people just rock.

It’s been a heartbreaking few days. This is what’s left of my house. Love. Many people in Malibu and surrounding areas in California have lost their homes also and my heart goes out to everyone who was affected by these fires.

The Bachelor couple Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham announced this morning that they have a baby on the way. Now, a few details about their baby are starting to come out. First off, the couple shared that they were not trying to get pregnant, but they are happy about it. They are still planning to do their wedding in January as well. They have been clear that babies were in the plan, but it just happened a bit sooner than expected. Arie and Lauren feel like it was probably meant to go that way.

It turns out that Arie Luyendrk Jr. and Lauren Burnham already know the sex of their baby. The couple isn’t sharing that news just yet, though. Hopefully, they will do some kind of big gender reveal and let the fans in on the news.

View this post on Instagram

I can’t sleep… the house is quiet, you’re next to me. I can hear your soft breath and I wonder what you’re dreaming about. I closed my eyes tonight and our future played like a beautiful romance with flashes of our wedding, travels, our children and a house full of friends, family and love. I woke up and you were wrapped in my arms, our pups on the floor next to us. Now I lay awake wanting to fast forward our lives but in the same breath push pause and not let these eyes close for too long because this is what true love feels like. Good night xo

A post shared by Arie Luyendyk ? (@ariejr) on Nov 8, 2018 at 1:00am PST

Arie and Lauren have to be careful and not let the news slip out. Their wedding is January 12, 2019. It turns out that the Bachelor couple plans to share the sex of their baby around that time. That is two months that the couple has to keep it a secret. That won’t be easy, but you never know if they might let it slip.

Both Arie and Lauren didn’t really care if they had a girl or a boy. The thing is they both had a feeling that they knew the sex of their baby and it turns out they were right. Arie and Lauren still aren’t letting anything slip, though.

Lauren Burnham did have a hard time during her first trimester. She is past that now. Most couples wait to reveal they are expecting until that hard part is over and that is what they did. Here is what Lauren had to say about her first trimester.

“Over the last week I’ve started feeling a lot better. It’s nice to have my energy back.”

Fans of The Bachelor are just going to have to wait on Arie and Lauren to share a few more details. They both like to post on their social networks a lot, so following the couple there will be a great way to get updates during her pregnancy and see that baby bump grow.

Are you surprised to hear that Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham have a baby on the way? Let us know in the comments below, and don’t miss new episodes of The Bachelor 2019 with Colton Underwood when they start airing on Mondays in January on ABC.

The post Arie Luyendyk Jr., Lauren Burnham Baby Details Start to Come Out appeared first on Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Apparently this exercise is good for your ass muscles. OK. I have some questions. Is it better or worse for your ass muscles than squats?
