After claiming she is all about abstinence single mom Bristol Palin, who , just a few weeks ago, called off a wedding with her now ex-boyfriend. When she announced her pregnancy on her blog she stated that she is trying to keep her chin up throughout the pregnancy. She also stated that her calling off the wedding disappointed her family. One can only imagine that she called off the wedding because her former fiancé didn’t want to be a father or he was just simply not the biological father at all, which likely wouldn’t surprise anyone.

Proving how empty her head really is Kim Kardashian made sure to tell the world that even though some people think she takes too many selfies that she posts on Instagram, her account is used exactly how she wants it to be used. She admitted that the brands she is supposed to promote are often unhappy with her because she doesn’t post enough pictures that will advertise those brands. She even went so far as to state that when she enters into a business contract with any company use of her Instagram account is not included in that contract. Apparently posting selfies is much more important to her than promoting brands she endorses.
In other Kim Kardashian gossip, being pregnant hasn’t exactly grounded her in California as she was seen recently dining with family at a restaurant in the South of France. She’s been in town due to a scheduled appearance at the Cannes Lions Festival.
America’s Got Talent viewers are disappointed that Howard stern is not returning as a judge (though some of us that don’t even watch this show are still happy to hear that.)

Ross is being accused of kidnapping as well as aggravated battery and assault after an incident that took place at his Atlanta mansion. This comes on the heels of an arrest in mid June on drug charges. He just came up with $2 million bond but he’s on a very tight legal leash. If he intimidates or threatens any witnesses, he’ll have to hand over his entire Holyfield property. He’ll be wearing some familiar jewelry in the form of the ankle monitor. He might as well just stay in the house as his temper keeps getting him in trouble.

With 35 of the 50 states having ratified the amendment, Streep is now pushing for the remaining 15 states to do the same.

What a contrast to the likes of Kim Kardashian.
After P Diddy,Sean Combs, or whatever else he calls himself this week, made a spectacle and got himself arrested after engaging in a physical altercation with son Justin’s football coach, Justin has posted on Instagram in support of his hot headed dad. Justin posted a picture of himself and P Diddy and stated in the caption that his father is always there for him. P Diddy is soon scheduled to appear in court on felony charges, proving that he just can’t be a good role model for his son (though Justin seems too brainwashed to realize that.)
