Snapchats from the party, actually
Yesterday, thanks to aunt La Toya Jackson, we learned that Michael Jackson‘s eldest child Prince Michael Joseph graduated from high school with honors over the weekend. Today we get to see a collection of photos that have made their way out of the Jackson family’s graduation party for Prince. TMZ managed to get their hands on a bunch of Snapchat photos that were taken during Prince‘s graduation party … but it’s unclear who was taking the photos. One photo, of grandma Katherine Jackson, is captioned “Jackie Jackson” so it’s possible that the snaps were taken by someone who isn’t really familiar with the family. In any event, it’s nice to see that the Jacksons came together for a nice and very normal-looking graduation party for Prince. He’s off to college in the fall, I can’t wait to find out which SoCal university he will attend.
Her daughter Brooke is no longer speaking with her
Last month, after the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star got arrested for public intoxication, etc. at the Beverly Hills Hotel, Kim Richards paid a visit to the Dr. Phil show to make some money on the incident before she checked herself in to a rehab treatment facility. This past weekend, Kim checked herself out of rehab early so that she could attend her daughter Brooke Brinson‘s wedding in Mexico. Today we learn the sad news that things at the wedding didn’t go smoothly because at one point, Kim turned into an inebriated “mess” during the nuptials. Her behavior got so bad, TMZ reports, that Kim‘s sober coach quit and her daughter Brooke is no longer speaking to her. Ugh. More »
"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.
