Celebrity Splits Of 2018

Although 2018 was a lucky year for love with some Hollywood couples, for many it was the year they said goodbye to their relationships, new and old. Take a look as we count down all the celeb breakups so far of this year. Just take a look at these two once love birds, Cardi B and Offset.

Cardi B took to Instagram on December 4th to say that she and Offset have split. This is what she said:

“So everybody been bugging me and everything. And you know, I been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now. We’re really good friends and you know we’re really good business partners… He’s always somebody that I run to, to talk to and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time,” Cardi says in the video. “It’s nobodies fault it’s just like I guess we grew out of love. But, we’re not together any more. It might take time to get a divorce. I’m always going to have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.”

The couple has a child together named Kulture Kiari Cephus. Rapper Offset later wrote about Cardi’s post, “Y’all won,” confirming her post. He proposed to Cardi B in October 2017.

Robert De Niro & Grace Hightower

The two decide to call it quits after 20 years of marriage. A close source to the couple said to People Magazine: “Sometimes things don’t work out the way you hope or want them to.”
They go married back in 1997 and have two kids, Elliott (20) and Helen Grace (6).

If you remember, this isn’t the first time they split. Back in 1999 De Niro filed for divorce, but they worked it out and even renewed their vows in 2004.
The last time they were seen together was at the Tony Awards in June 2018. De Niro has two kids from his previous wife Diahnne Abbott (1976 to 1988), Drena (47) and Raphael (42), and another two with his 1995 girlfriend Touki Smith, twins Aaron and Julian.

Jillian Michaels & Heidi Rhoades

Fitness trainer Jillian Michaels and Heidi Rose have called of their engagement and split up after 9 years of being together however they remain close and are committed to co-parenting as a team.

Jillian let the public in when she announced on her Instagram: “Heidi and I have been split for a while now.

We’ve found we’re better friends and parents living apart than staying together,” Jillian wrote on Instagram. “Life and people change but our love for one another and commitment to raising our two kids as an inseparable team remains. Thanks for always loving and supporting us, the feeling is mutual!”

They have two children together, daughter Lukensia and son Phoenix.

That’s right, put down your bridal magazines and brace yourselves, because we’ve come up with a list of some of the best wedding gowns we’ve seen on TV. These wedding ceremonies can’t just be to make us cry during our chick flicks, so let’s see which ones we can take some inspiration from.

Warning! This article may cause any bride-to-be to go a little bit more crazy than usual.

Ready? Let’s adDRESS these 34 ladies in their gowns properly…

‘Suits’: Rachel Zane

So maybe Rachel Zane’s wedding dress is not nearly as extravagant as Meghan Markle’s at the royal wedding, but is there anything you can put Meghan in that doesn’t make her look like a princess? This classic V-neck dress was designed by Anne Barge. This dress is the perfect combination of extra and modest.

The fitted waist and simple top half of the dress, give an elegant and classic look. Where as the lower half of the dress, is covered in floral appliques giving you the ‘its my wedding day’ glow.

If you’re a Suits fan, then you know that this was an appropriate occasion to end off season seven. The marriage of Rachel and Mike Ross, warmed our hearts way more than her dress, but that wasn’t too bad to look at ether.

True Real Housewives Facts & Stories

It’s always really good to take a look back at the early years of popular TV shows, so let’s take a look at The Real Housewives of Orange County. Originally the series was tipped to be called Behind the Gates and was a chance for viewers to take a peek into the glamorous lives of 5 women living in Orange County, California.

Eventually, the show was renamed, the format was promising but they changed the name to The Real Housewives – the show we now know so well.

How RHOC Got Started

When the show was still called Behind the Gates it gave the impression that it was going to be more about the homes and properties rather than the people. By changing the name to The Real Housewives, viewers knew that the focus of the show was squarely on the people and personalities involved.

This particular franchise specializes in character-based shows so it is not surprising that the name they finally picked reflects that.

The Real Housewives Of…

Once they had decided on The Real Housewives there was still some debate about whether or not they really needed to add “of Orange County” to that.

However, it seems that someone had the right idea when they said that adding the locations would leave the way open for some spin-off shows later. This was 12 years ago and since then there have been 9 spin-offs. Give that guy a promotion!

Let’s test your knowledge and see!

Discovery Channel Network Disappointments

The Discovery Channel has been around for a very long time and used to be a great resource for learning new things from around the world.  Sadly, all that’s going on now, are stories about casts and members of the channel that are quite disappointing on the borderline scandalous. The network has reality shows literally riddled with convicted criminals.

Not only does Discovery Communications own this channel, but they also own Animal Planet and TLC.  It seems the Discovery Channel has sunk to an all-time low with reality shows that are misleading and quite honestly disgusting.  Take a look at some of the worst scandals in Discovery’s history and how people on these shows were able to make money off their really nasty habits.

Let’s talk numbers


The ‘young kid’ is 24 and a close look at his net worth reveals that he is worth over $2 million! So even if you’re a Gold Rush die hard fan, you still can’t look aside. The amount is crazy considering his age.

So if we try and sum up what we’ve learned about the ‘young kid’, it seems that while we get the poor kid story on camera, he is quietly making a substantial investment in his future career and income. We’re all for it, but we do ask for some honesty to go with his success.

The “Alaskan” Bush People

The show Alaskan Bush People has been swirling in controversy as more and more people couldn’t figure out what was real and what was a lie.  It seems that the family claiming to be Alaskan Bush People are Not Alaskan Bush People, as a matter of fact, they originally lived just 10 miles outside of the town!

The family members Billy, Bear, Bam Bam, Noah, Matthew, and Gabriel were given citations due to false claims they made on their hunting and fishing licenses regarding their residency.  They claimed they were born and raised in the wild but actually were living in Texas and Colorado.  In 2012, it seems they bought their licenses right after moving to Alaska.

Pleaded Guilty To Fraud

The cast from Alaskan Bush People wrapped themselves in so many lies about living in Alaska, they couldn’t dig out.  In 2015, the Brown family finally confessed they did not live in Alaska but only said so to collect government checks.  Billy and Joshua Brown pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree Unsworn Falsification. This is when someone makes a written statement that is false and he or she knows it was not true at the time.

Allegedly, the family claimed they lived in southeastern Alaska.  The state has an Alaskan Permanent Fund Division that offers full-time residents thousands of dollars to remain in the state.  Billy Brown confessed that he collected $7,956 from the state and Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown said he collected $1,174.  They were both found guilty and sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Best Celebrity TMI’s

We love our celebrities for whatever talent they’re trying to sell us, but, we’d be lying if we didn’t say, that what we love even more, is to learn about their real lives! That being said, we have a few examples here of some public figures who may have just been a little too public and giving us Too Much Information.

Ready? let’s begin…

Oh, Baby

We may no longer have Brangelina but we’ll always have this interview Angelina Jolie gave Entertainment Weekly while pregnant with Vivienne and Knox, she and Brad Pitt’s twins. This gorgeous couple will forever be an iconic duo in Hollywood history. Well, they lasted a lot longer than most celeb relationships! Now that their love story has come to an end, we wonder if Angelina regrets any of these interviews that are forever exposed.

Pitt and Positivity.

Whilst discussing the topic of having sex while pregnant, she told the magazine: “It’s great for the sex life…It just makes you a lot more creative. So you have fun, and as a woman, you’re just so round and full.” Does this advice still apply if your face isn’t as gorgeous as Angelina’s? Or your hair doesn’t have as much bounce? Regardless, this is fun advice for pregnant women and not inappropriate at all.

There is a fine line between sharing and over-sharing and we’ve gathered the celebrities who walk that line like a tightrope!  Take a look at some of the most shocking secrets exposed, be it via social media, or straight from the horse’s mouth, once its out- it’s out and it’s delicious!

Each State Perfectly Portrayed By One Photograph

Many people, especially those who live outside the US, tend to clump all the states together and view all American citizens as simply “American”.

Which, of course, is wrong to do. The truth is that each state is a mini country in and of itself, with its own unique character and even laws. This list tries to embody the different states using one picture to “rule them all”. And don’t worry, we know each state has its own beauty.

Scroll through and see how these photographs describe their state to a tee. Let’s begin . . .

Alabama

This is one of the most regular sights in Alabama—a young man wearing cut-off overalls and selling the “official” Alabama fishing boat on the side of a street. Looks pretty useful!

All About Rosie O’Donnell’s Engagement, Fiancee and Bling-Ring

Congratulations to Rosie O’Donnell (56) and girlfriend Elizabeth Rooney (33). In the middle of October 2018, O’Donnell publicly announced her engagement in an interview with People magazine, and we all got to have a closer look at her fiancee and at her engagement ring. Beautiful ring that is.

Rooney is a police officer and Army veteran, and she lives in Boston. They haven’t set a date yet, but O’Donnell said that the wedding is “a long time in the future. We both decided that that would be best.” They have been dating long distance with O’Donnell living in NY, and they’ve been dating for more than a year now.

Like other celebrity LGBTQ couples, O’Donnell and Rooney plan on having a beautiful wedding but haven’t planned it yet.

In the same interview, O’Donnell was asked about their 23-year gap. O’Donnell didn’t seem to mind, and of course, neither did Rooney, and she told the reporter: “I keep telling her I’m too old for her. But she doesn’t seem to care… She’s like, ‘I was in the Army! I put my life on the line every day you think I don’t know who I want to date?’ I’m like, ‘Alright I guess that’s true.'”

3 Times You Had To Laugh When At The Airport

There are things that you can accept in certain places, and in other places not. For example, a man in underwear is totally ok when it happens in front of a TSA guy at the airport. In your workplace? Not so much. In other cases, you would accept annoying people because you were on your way to a vacation and were in a good mood. Which would never happen on the street on your way to work.

At the airport, you are much more forgiving to the weird, funny and wacky. Take these three times where you knew that something was wrong on so many levels, but it was at the airport so you never gave it a second thought.

Hogging the travelator (The moving walkway)

Often you find people at airports running, rushing to catch their flight or spend some time in the duty-free shops, but there are moments one has to sit back and laugh, like the guys stuck behind this old lady who seems totally oblivious that she is causing one huge traffic jam! That…or she just doesn’t give a damn! You should see more like this.

Double Take

Made you look… :-)

When traveling, or even going down the street, you better check how you look before you leave the house. And look all around, not only how you look face to face. This woman made people all around the airport look twice… “wait, is she… oh my. No, wait, it’s her bag!” was the most spoken sentence in every language in that airport on that day. Oh, btw, it’s her travel pillow. And it’s only one part of many more hilarious moments at the airport.

Camo-flight

Last time I checked, an airport was not a hunting ground. A proper one that is. It could be hunting grounds for weirdos, but still, no need for a full-out camo suit. Not that this could ever be called a camo suit. I mean, I believe that a person having this on in the woods would be the hunted and not the hunter.

5 Funny Tweets That Say ‘Clueless’ All Over Them

Well, no one ever said that ALL great minds think alike!  Couples are no exception when it comes to being on the same page at the same time. In an age of digital devices and high technology, some people just never really climbed on board.

Even the most successful relationships can have very funny moments that leave for more questions than answers. From looking up into the sky and asking if that’s Earth shining up there to confusing the sun with the moon!  It’s a fact that all relationships have their ups and downs but if you can laugh it off, you are by far the better person!

Organ “Donor”

When you’ve been brought up to believe that, if given the opportunity, the government will steal the gold right out of your mouth, it’s a little difficult to know where the line is drawn.  We’ve got to side with this guy, if for no other reason than his misunderstanding about organ donations.  He really did believe they could stop by one day and request an organ!  In self-defense, his lack of knowledge on the subject left him wanting to protect what is rightfully his!

Then Where Are You?

Some questions can be a little strange if the person asking is not familiar with a given subject but, in this case, it sounds like the girlfriend skipped her astronomy class in elementary school.  One night she gazed up into the sky, stared at a star, and asked her boyfriend if they were looking at planet Earth!  Well, if that’s the Earth, where the heck are the rest of us hanging out?

A Brown Cow

So, this woman goes for a walk, comes running back in a panic that she was being charged by an animal! Saying it looked like a cow but was black and white not brown, leaves us with several questions.  One, did she not learn anything about biology in school?  Two, did it ever dawn on her that just because it was not brown, it sure looked like a cow!  Lady, trust us – it’s a cow!

Plastic Love?

Ok, we realize some artificial plants look real but how many times would you water a plant and see the water just pouring through?  Well, Tweedledee and Tweedledum seem to be a perfect match!  Being told once would normally be enough, but three times?? Give me a break!

That Explains Why He Didn’t Pick Up

We all seem to take advantage of a world with cell phones that are at arm’s length.  This woman wanted to call her husband but overlooked one important fact.  He had told her he left his cell phone at home and asked her to bring it to him. Well, looks like she forgot the phone when she tried to call him.  We do applaud her for finding the humor in this faux pas and hopefully had a good laugh!

You have to see these other people who have the most unintentional hilarious partners

Well, no one ever said that ALL great minds think alike!  Couples are no exception when it comes to being on the same page at the same time. In an age of digital devices and high technology, some people just never really climbed on board.

Unseen Groovy Pictures Of Prince

Prince Rogers Nelson was the human embodiment of an enigma. He achieved the legend status as a musical genius, fashion icon and international sex symbol. Prince is not any ordinary pop star and has sold more than 100 million records around the world. He is the recipient of seven Grammy awards, one Golden Globe and one Oscar.

Prince was born to be a musician. He came into this world on 7th June 1958 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His was father was John Lewis, a songwriter and pianist while his mother was Mattie Della the jazz singer. Prince wasn’t always the star we remember.  There was a time when he was just another teenager, his whole future unmapped in front of him.

While growing up, some important people saw his potential. Back in 1977, photographer Robert Whitman was hired to take some pictures for promotional purposes of a young and unknown musician from Minneapolis.

He took some “normal” pictures of the 17-year-old musician, but some of the pictures were so cool and groovy that they had a sparkle of what was to become of Prince.

Prince Smiling?!

Whitman recalls: “It was our second day of shooting… Prince said: ‘I want to shoot with my guitar.’ …That moment he gave me a big smile. Back then it was quite normal but now it is unique – you won’t see Prince smiling so much in other photos.”

And yes, since he became famous, it was very hard to take a promotional picture of Prince smiling.

The Artist Formerly Known as Prince went on to achieve fame far beyond anything he could have imagined when this photo of him and his guitar was first snapped.

Only his passion for sex came close to his passion for music. Prince is known for having explicit lyrics which were inspired by his real-life sexual escapades. He was caught in bed with a girl when he was only 12 and he has been a ladies’ man ever since.

A glimpse into future

In this picture, Prince is still a teen before fame, but you can start to see the Prince we all know and love. You can see it in his eye and expression and his accessories. His famous Cross obsession started long before he even thought about signing. Although, he did start singing at age 7, so probably the cross was added at a later age.

He was named Prince after his father’s stage name which means he was always meant to be a performer. His father performed in a jazz group known as the Prince Rogers Trio and said he wanted to pass on the name to his son to allow him “to do everything I wanted to do”.

Prince would, of course, go on to achieve incredible popularity between his albums and his cult classic film Purple Rain which would earn him an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Over his incredible career, he sold over 100 million records and won an American Music Award and seven Grammy Awards. Prince was honored in 2004 with his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.   His style encompassed all genres, from rock to new wave and funk, soul, pop, psychedelia and R&B.
