"I'm really lucky I have an amazing support system"
Way back in 2012 we started covering the story of Ariel Winter‘s emancipation process, and the heavy family drama that came along with it. There were so many conflicting stories, as Ariel and her sister Shanelle Gray both accused their mother of abuse, and Ariel‘s father got involved, along with the courts and—of course—public opinion. Now, three years later, the Modern Family actor has officially and legally been emancipated at age 17. Click inside for more.

Like mother, like daughter
Everybody (and their mama) was getting all verklempt and adorable online yesterday for Mother’s Day, myself included. At a certain point I was literally just scrolling down timelines, looking for a chance to “meet” someone’s Mom, and there were some goodies. Trent shared a great photo of his Mama, and this morning I saw that Beyoncé had gotten in on the fun. She posted this really fun mother/daughter side-by-side shot that I just love.

"Whatever the Lord decides, I'm ready"
Cissy Houston gave an interview to Entertainment Tonight to give the latest update on the condition of her granddaughter Bobbi Kristina and, very unfortunately, the news is the same. This will very likely be the last post that I will write about Bobbi Kristina Brown unless something very significant happens. According to Cissy, there has been no change in BK‘s condition … and it sounds like Cissy is ready to just let whatever will be come to pass. She previously stated that she is pretty much ready to Bobbi Kristina go and her new statements below seem to confirm that resolution. More »
"Once a champion, always a champion"
Last night we got our first look at Bruce Jenner’s coming out moment during his interview with Diane Sawyer. I’m watching the video right now HERE, and—like the introduction to the interview—I’ll begin with a note about pronouns. Many people have already started referring to Jenner with “she,” (which is what I would have done too) but at the beginning of the piece, they note that Jenner asked that they refer to him using the familiar pronoun “he,” although it should be noted that he also referred to himself with the female pronoun—”That is me. That is her.” He also makes a distinction between the two at times. “He” is the one with the secrets, “she” is the honest one. So, I’m not entirely sure which one to use, but I’m sticking with “she” for now. So, in case you missed it, Bruce Jenner has revealed that she is “for all intents and purposes” a woman. This morning, the first thing I did was check to see if Transparent creator Jill Soloway had spoken out on Twitter. Of course, she had, and she wasn’t alone in sending her love to Jenner.

What a party!
We’ve previously seen photos HERE and HERE from Beyoncé‘s mother’s wedding day last weekend but today, we get to see a LOT of new photos from her special day. Beyoncé shares a bunch of wedding day photos on her official website that show just how fun Tina and new husband Richard Lawson‘s wedding day was. Everyone, as you may know, wore white and Blue Ivy wore a tiara, OF COURSE. I love that Bey decided to share all of these photos with fans because how else would we get to see how mama Tina got down on her wedding day.
I mean ...
When last we got word about North West, the only begotten child of Kanye West and his wife, she was busy getting baptized in Jerusalem because where else but the Holy Land would the progeny of Yeezus get washed in the blood of the lamb. Today, we get to see a new photo of little Nori that is a throwback to the West family’s visit to Armenia last week. North‘s mother shared the cute photo below of Nori touching toesies with her daddy while they were on holiday and OMG is it adorably cute. More »
"[Bobbi Kristina] remains unresponsive"
Yesterday, after we heard the horribly irresponsible and erroneous news from members of the Brown family that Bobbi Kristina was “awake” from her coma, we learned the actual news that Bobbi Kris remains unresponsive in long-term medical care with no change. Seeking to further clarify BK‘s unchanged condition, her grandmother Cissy Houston has released an official statement confirming once and for all that Bobbi has suffered “irreversible brain damage” and remains, very sadly, unresponsive to all stimuli. As such, Bobby Brown‘s attorney was forced to issue a statement on his behalf clarifying what Bobby meant when he announced to the world that his daughter is “awake”. But, where Bobby is concerned, he seemingly sadly remains in denial about his daughter’s condition and maintains that because “God is hearing” prayers, his daughter will “have a long life”. Sigh.

Keepin' it REAL
If Britney Spears isn’t wowing the crowd in concert in Las Vegas then she is most assuredly spending as much quality time as possible with her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James (while also fitting in time with her boo Charlie Ebersol in between it all) which is what she did this weekend with her sons at a skatepark here in SoCal. Britney has shared cute photos and video before of her sons and their love of skateboarding so this update with more photos to share shouldn’t be all that surprising. Britney‘s boys spent some time skating with Alex Midler and from the look of the photos below, it would appear that everyone had a great time. More »
