Did Scheana Marie And Stassi Schroeder Just Comment On Mike Shay's Finances After Their Divorce?

Scheana Marie’s divorce from Mike Shay may be getting ugly. Following the announcement of the Vanderpump Rules couple’s split earlier this month, Scheana Marie and Mike Shay appeared to be staying civil with one another but according to a new tweet, their civility may have just been thrown to the wayside. On December 29, Scheana Marie’s co-star, Stassi Schroeder, shared an article about her Christmas festivities and Mike Shay’s recent visit to his hometown in Michigan. Then, in the caption, she appeared to take aim at the musician’s financial state by revealing that Scheana Marie not only paid for his visit back home, but has also been supporting him for years. “Buying your ex husband a trip home for the holidays after supporting him for years. @scheanamarie, you’re my hero,” Schroeder wrote in the caption of her post.

What can I say!?” After seeing the women’s exchange, several commenters weighed in on their posts and a couple of people found the revelation to be a direct dig at Shay. “Amazing that neither of you see this as disrespectful to @MikeShayMusic,” one person wrote. Another said, “WOW! WTF? So much for not slamming him.” When Scheana Marie and Mike Shay confirmed their decision to end their marriage earlier this month, they said they were committed to remaining friends, despite the end of their romantic relationship. “While we have made the difficult decision to move forward separately, our story will continue on through the love and mutual respect that we have cultivated throughout our 15-year friendship,” the couple said in their statement to Us Weekly. “Much of the recent speculation and reporting on our relationship has been misguided, and we have come to an amicable decision on all matters. We might have failed at our marriage, but we are committed to succeeding as friends and will continue to support each other’s personal happiness and professional success.” Scheana Marie and Stassi Schroeder may have taken her divorce to Twitter, but when it comes to Shay, he has remained silent for the most part. While he has not taken any digs at Scheana Marie or thrown any shade her way, he did deny that he was missing several weeks ago. After rumors claimed Shay had potentially fallen off the wagon and gone missing, Shay defended himself with a post to fans on Instagram. The post read, “I am not missing. I am sober. I am Happy!!! Don’t believe everything you read. I love my wife and will always love my wife. Whatever is going on between us will stay between us! I love my family and my family loves me and a lot of things have been said out is protection and anger by many people. I just ready for the next chapter in my life!” Scheana Marie attends “The Night Before” premiere on November 18, 2015

Although they did go through a rough patch during filming on Season 4 last year due to Shay’s admitted struggles with substance abuse, the majority of their moments on-screen have been happy ones. During Season 2, fans watched as Shay constructed a romantic proposal at the home of Lisa Vanderpump with the help of Scheana Marie’s co-stars, including Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder. Then, during Season 3, fans watched as the couple tied the knot at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Southern California.

Low Carb Weight Loss: Kim Kardashian, Melissa McCarthy Hype Protein, Sports Stars Use Ketogenic Diet

When it comes to celebrity weight loss in 2016, low carb diets ruled. Kim Kardashian and Melissa McCarthy stunned their fans with their slim-down success, with Kim opting for the Atkins program version of a low carb diet and Melissa reportedly turning to a similar high protein low carb weight loss plan. As for the world of sports stars, increasingly it’s the ketogenic diet that’s become the king, according to a new report. Ketogenic diets, sometimes called low-carb high fat (LCHF) diets, have been used by a variety of celebrities in the sports world, noted Men’s Fitness. LeBron James cut out carbohydrates and sugar to lose 25 pounds, while Sami Inkinen achieved a record time in rowing with his wife from California to Hawaii, powered by a ketogenic plan. Sami made his voyage to bring awareness to the risks of too much sugar and promote the LCHF way of life. LeBron James famously lost 25 pounds by cutting out carbohydrates and sugar. [Image by Slaven Vlasic/Getty Images for Sports Illustrated] Timothy Noakes, M.D., an emeritus professor in the Division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine at the University of Cape Town, has become a celebrity himself because of the knowledge he has about the LCHF lifestyle. Noakes contends that rather than consuming carbs to fuel their performance, athletes can cause their bodies to burn fat as the main source of fuel, a process called ketosis. Those who aren’t athletes but want to win their own game of weight loss can follow a similar high-fat plan, according to Noakes. Dr. Eric Westman, director of the Lifestyle Medicine Clinic at Duke University, told Time magazine the clinical definition of a ketogenic diet. “In a clinical setting, a strict ketogenic diet would involve ultra-low carb consumption, like 20 or 30 grams a day.” Translation: One small apple contains approximately that many carbohydrates. However, for those wincing at the thought of sacrificing high carb foods, Westman has researched what happens to the body on a low carb diet, and the results indicate that these low carb high fat plans can boost weight loss and reduce the appetite. Although a variety of low-carb diets exist, including the Atkins plan, Time cautions that the ketogenic lifestyle is the “most carb-restrictive” plan. It’s not just carbohydrates that get cut in a true LCHF approach, however. Protein also is restricted, and that means eating much more fat, explains Westman. “You’d want healthy fats to account for about 80% of your calories, and protein around 20%.” In comparison, the average American reportedly consumes 50 percent of calories from carbohydrates, 15 percent from protein, and 30 percent from fat. However, changing to a ketogenic diet can do more than boost weight loss, according to this expert’s research, which also indicates it can help with type 2 diabetes as well as some other conditions. He emphasized that a shift to a ketogenic diet for these individuals, as well as those who are older or are kids, should be attempted only under the supervision of a doctor or dietitian. Kim Kardashian lost 60 pounds on a low carb high protein diet. [Image by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images] In contrast to the LCHF diet, Kim Kardashian turned to the high protein low carb Atkins program, reported Self. Kim achieved her 60-pound post-pregnancy weight loss by using a variation called the Atkins 40, revealed Colette Heimowitz, Atkins’s Vice President of Nutrition & Education and Kardashian’s nutritionist. Kim ate 40 grams of carbohydrates daily, consuming three to four 6-ounce servings of protein each day. Fiber-rich carbohydrates, such as vegetables and certain fruits, also helped Kardashian avoid feeling hungry, and she consumed healthy fats such as nuts and avocado. Heimowitz explained the resulting benefits to Kim’s and other Atkins dieters’ bodies. “Your body uses fat as fuel because it doesn’t have carbohydrates to turn to, so you end up losing body fat.” Kardashian’s nutritionist also noted that because the weight loss program features enough protein, Kim maintained her muscle. A sample day for Kardashian began with eggs, cheese and vegetables for breakfast. Kim typically ate mid-morning snack of an Atkins bar. For lunch, Kardashian consumed grilled salmon with asparagus and a side salad. Guacamole and vegetables served as an afternoon snack for the reality TV star, and Kim often dined on chicken breast with broccoli and a salad with creamy dressing for dinner. Kardashian’s calorie total ranges from 1500 to 1800 per day. Like Kim, Melissa McCarthy followed a high protein plan. But while Kardashian is earning wows for her appearance, Melissa reportedly chose a high protein low carb diet for a different reason than to be Hollywood-standard thin. McCarthy wanted to set a good example for her kids, reported Shape. A source cited by Shape revealed that Melissa also desired to “stay healthy for her kids, and to live longer.” In Touch Weekly reported that McCarthy has a total weight loss of 75 pounds, citing an insider’s revelation that Melissa herself was surprised by her slim-down success. “Melissa never expected to drop all this weight.” The source shared that although McCarthy “has no intention of losing any more,” she won’t “complain” if she sheds even more pounds on the same plan.

Debbie Reynolds Died: Heartbreaking Last Words Were For Daughter Carrie Fisher

Classic movie superstar Debbie Reynolds died just one day after daughter Carrie Fisher died of a heart attack. The official records may show that Debbie Reynolds died from a stroke, but few will dispute that the grief-stricken Debbie died from a broken heart. The world has looked on aghast as the list of 2016 celebrity deaths lengthened over this holiday period. Status Quo guitarist Rick Parfitt died on Christmas Eve, pop star George Michael added to the list of celebrity deaths on Christmas Day. As recently reported in the Inquisitr 2016 has been a dreadful year for celebrity deaths, and with the loss of Reynolds and Fisher the world has lost two giants of the silver screen. (Image by Ethan Miller/Getty Images) Reynolds, who was 84-years-old, took to Facebook on Christmas Day to say that Carrie Fisher was doing well. Fisher had been hospitalized after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London. Passengers on her flight had administered CPR until paramedics rushed the Star Wars legend to hospital. Debbie said that Carrie was stable and that she would keep fans up to date with her progress. “My daughter, Carrie Fisher, is in stable condition in ICU.” “If there is any change, the family will share the information at that time. To all her friends and fans, I thank you all for your prayers and good wishes.” Tragically, Fisher died just a few hours later. Reynolds made another Facebook post to thank fans for their “thoughts and prayers.” “Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter. I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop. Love Carries Mother” Carrie Fisher’s cause of death appears to have been heart failure, and it seems that Debbie Reynolds died from a broken heart. Debbie’s son and Carrie’s brother Todd Fisher, revealed that his mother’s dying wish was to be with Carrie. What Were Debbie Reynolds Last Words? Todd Fisher told Reuters that Reynolds had been rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital yesterday after suffering a stroke brought on by the stress of Fisher’s death. Announcing his mother’s death Fisher said “it’s true, she’s with Carrie and we’re all heartbroken.” Fisher revealed that Reynolds had said that she missed Carrie and wanted to be with her, “she left very shortly after that and those were the last words she spoke.” “She spoke to me this morning and said she missed Carrie. She said, ‘I want to be with Carrie’, and then she was gone.” As the news of Reynolds’ death broke, numerous people took to social media and wrote that “she died of a broken heart.” Fisher and Reynolds endured a somewhat fractious relationship. Carrie found it difficult growing up in the spotlight cast by Reynolds fame. Debbie was one of her generations biggest female stars and Carrie found it tough to live her early life on a movie set. Fisher spoke about her contrasting emotions in her 2008 memoir, “Wishful Drinking.” “When I was little I couldn’t believe my luck, this beautiful, funny, movie star was my mother.” “Walking down the street with her was like being in a parade. In public I had to share her. She belonged to everybody.” (Image by Ethan Miller/Getty Images) Fisher revealed that she struggled because she was rarely able to have “private time” with Reynolds. By the time that Fisher was making her own name in the movie business, as Princess Leia in Star Wars, she was already struggling with depression and addiction. Carrie Fisher went off the rails in a big way. Drug addiction, numerous love affairs and mental health issues all took their toll on a young star with a tendency to self-destruction. Reynolds relationship with Fisher was a difficult one, they didn’t speak to each other for over 10-years. Thankfully, Debbie and Carrie managed to repair their relationship and they became virtually inseparable in later years. Reynolds and Fisher represent the highs of two movie generations, both became icons of their age. Too see them die within a day of each other is heartbreaking for their family, friends and everyone who knew them, but if Debbie Reynolds last words are anything to go by, they wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Carrie Fisher And Debbie Reynolds' Documentary 'Bright Lights' To Air On HBO

Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds’ documentary film Bright Lights is set to air on HBO at a yet-to-be-announced date. The documentary film, which details the unique mother-and-daughter relationship between Fisher and Reynolds, was screened at the New York Film Festival in October and previously in Cannes. The unexpected deaths of Fisher and Reynolds in the last 48 hours came as a shock to the team who developed and produced the documentary. As previously reported by Mirror, the people behindBright Lights have been left “reeling from shock” after the news of their deaths broke. Watch Carrie Fisher speak candidly about her mother Debbie Reynolds in new documentary Bright Lights https://t.co/TlLITtjMTi? @TelegraphFilm — Catherine Moraitis (@katmor66) December 29, 2016 Star Wars icon Carrie Fisher has died on Tuesday at the age of 60 due to complications following a heart attack she suffered during a flight from New York to Los Angeles. Her mother, legendary actress and singer Debbie Reynolds, died the next day due to a massive stroke, which many suspect was brought on by her daughter’s death. Bright Lights: Starring Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher is a documentary film that provides footage and material detailing the special bond the mother and daughter developed over six decades under the glare of the Hollywood spotlight. “It’s a love story,” HBO Documentary Films president Sheila Nevins told Variety Wednesday night not long after Reynolds’ death was announced. “Carrie wanted to make Bright Lights for Debbie and Debbie wanted to make it for Carrie,” Nevins said. “If this was a Hollywood script, no one would believe it,” she added while trying to fight back tears. “They just loved each other so much. The bond was just unbreakable.” Most of the footage shown in the documentary was taken around a year ago, with shots showcasing the bond between mother and daughter, which is nothing short of unique given the singular circumstances of their relationship under Hollywood’s bright lights. Fisher has been pretty straightforward about her recent struggles with mental illness through most of the documentary. “It’s life with Carrie and Debbie. It’s about both of them trying to stand upright, both having their frailties — age on the one hand and mental illness on the other. It’s a love story about a mother and daughter — they happen to be Carrie and Debbie.” Debbie Reynolds and Debbie Fisher back in 1972.
[Image by Dove/Getty Images] Nevins said that one of Carrie Fisher’s main goals in the documentary is to document and highlight for the younger generation her mother’s contributions as an entertainer. Debbie Reynolds was best known for being the star of Tammy films and the musical Singin’ in the Rain, among many others. 8 Roles That Prove Debbie Reynolds Was Born to Be an Entertainer https://t.co/JWlOwnrTfS — Hassanhh472339@gmail (@Hassanhh4723391) December 29, 2016 “She wanted to preserve all of that for her mother,” Nevins said. Nevins became close friends with Fisher when the two met a few years ago while working together on the HBO adaptation of the Star Wars icon’s Broadway show Wishful Drinking. The HBO documentary chief last spoke to Fisher by phone last week. According to Nevins, Fisher had planned on flying from London to New York for the filming of Bright Lights but had later changed her mind and flew to Los Angeles instead to spend the holidays with her mother Reynolds and other family members. Nevins said that Fisher was in good spirits the last time she saw her in London in June. At the time, the actress was just finishing her latest memoir, “The Princess Diarist,” where she wrote about her experiences during the filming of the first three Star Wars movies. There had been some discussions about the possibility of turning the book into an HBO special, Nevins said. “Carrie wanted to be well even when her mind didn’t let her be well,” she added. “She was perfectly brilliant.” Bright Lights: Starring Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher has no official premiere date yet. Nevins said that HBO is mulling over the appropriate time to air the documentary on account of Fisher and Reynolds’ tragic deaths. [Featured Image by Ethan Miller/Getty Images]

'Star Wars' Episode 8: Carrie Fisher Finished Her Scenes Before Passing Away

Star Wars fans won’t have to worry about Princess Leia not making it to Episode 8 because according to sources involved in the production Carrie Fisher was able to finish her scenes before she passed away on December 27. In Episode 8 Carrie Fisher will still be part of the cast portraying her role as General Leia Organa as reported by Variety. According to the entertainment site sources from the Star Wars production said that filming for the upcoming sequel to The Force Awakens were completed in July and they are currently in post-production right now. So it’s safe to say that in Episode 8 Carrie Fisher will still get to delight fans of the epic space saga with her presence. But despite that fans of the saga are wondering how Leia Organa’s involvement in the story will unfold in the final installment to the latest Star Wars trilogy. Will the production do the same thing they did to Peter Cushing when they filmed Rogue One? Or will they come up with a plot line that will conclude with Leia’s death? In Rogue One the production was able to bring back to life Peter Cushing by digitally recreating his likeness on screen. Cushing played Grand Moff Tarkin the first commander of the original Death Star in the first Star Wars trilogy. [Image by Frank Tewkesbury/AP Images] Cushing died in 1994 due to prostate cancer but the production behind Rogue One thought that the late actor was far too important to the film that using another actor to play his role was out of the question. With that in mind the people behind Rogue One decided to use Guy Henry, an actor who closely resembled Cushing, and had his appearance digitally altered to mimic the star of several Hammer films. The appearance of Cushing in Rogue One was so realistic that his former secretary, Joyce Broughton, was dazzled when she saw him portraying his former role once more. It’s due to the direction that Rogue One took that a lot of people are wondering if the production behind Episode 9 will do the same to Carrie Fisher for the final installment. Thankfully, in Episode 8 Carrie Fisher’s likeness won’t have to be digitally created because she was able to finish filming her scenes before she passed away recently. Although some are asking if there will be alterations to the upcoming sequel to The Force Awakens seeing that in Episode 8 Carrie Fisher’s character might die before she reaches Episode 9. Fortunately, reports have confirmed that in Episode 8 Carrie Fisher’s death will not be an issue to alter the story. According to Fox News, there’ll be no need to address the death of Leia in Episode 8. Instead they will introduce it in Episode 9 although there are questions and disputes on how they will bring it up in the final installment. Divided fans Despite the use of digital technology to bring back late actors to the screen not all fans of the Star Wars saga are on board with this tactic. According to a blog piece by Zac Thompson from The Huffington Post digitally recreating Peter Cushing for Rogue One was “disrespectful” to the late actor. A writer for The Guardian also shared her thoughts about using digital technology to bring back to life an actor who has long been gone. Catherine Shoard echoed Thompson’s sentiments in that recreating Cushing to satisfy the cravings of some Star Wars fans to see old characters come to life once more may have been too much and for her it was a “digital indignity.” It’s with these in mind that some fans of the epic saga are wondering how the production behind the last two installments to the Star Wars franchise will deal with the passing of one of the greatest actors to have graced the screen. In Episode 8 Carrie Fisher was able to film all of her scenes but will the production use them to digitally recreate her for the final installment or will they simply let her rest in peace?

Debbie Reynolds' Last Words Revealed: Debbie's Final Thoughts Were About Carrie Fisher, Her Son Shares

Debbie Reynolds spoke her last words about the heartache over losing daughter Carrie Fisher, the son of the late actress revealed on Wednesday. The 84-year-old Reynolds was still grieving the loss of Fisher on Tuesday when Reynolds suffered what was reported to be a stroke the next day. Reynolds was rushed to the hospital, but died shortly after. To many fans still reeling from the loss of Carrie Fisher, the death of her mother compounded the tragedy. And Debbie’s son revealed on Wednesday that the loss of Fisher was the last thought in his mothers mind. In an interview with TMZ, Todd Fisher revealed the last words of Debbie Reynolds before her death. “I miss her so much, I want to be with Carrie,” Debbie said, according to Todd. Carrie Fisher had died a little more than a day before her mother, three days after Fisher suffered what was described as a massive heart attack while on a flight from London to Los Angeles. Some medical personnel on board were able to perform CPR and paramedics took Fisher to a hospital after the plane landed, but the medical incident was reportedly too much for her to survive. Fisher remained in an intensive care unit for days before her death, never regaining consciousness. The stress appeared to be too much for Debbie Reynolds. Todd revealed in another interview that his mother had been distraught since Carrie Fisher’s heart attack. “She held it together beautifully, obviously, for the last couple of days but she was under a lot of emotion and stress from the loss (of Fisher) and it’s pretty much what triggered this event,” Todd told E! News. Just hours before her own death, Debbie Reynolds had written a heart-wrenching remembrance to her late daughter. “Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter,” Reynolds wrote on Facebook. “I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop.” [Image by Ethan Miller/Getty Images] After the sudden death of Carrie Fisher followed just one day later by the death of her mother, many turned their attention to Carrie’s grief-stricken daughter, Billie Lourd. The Scream Queens actress has been seen as a rising star — her father is noted talent agent Bryan Lourd — but she now has lost two members of Hollywood royalty in her immediate family in just two days. [Image by Ethan Miller/Getty Images] “Carrie’s daughter is 24-years-old. To have to lose the girls, it’s just horrible,” Todd told E! News. “She’s got their genes but you can’t even imagine. I can’t imagine being 24 and having to do this and I’m 59.” Condolences are now pouring in from across Hollywood both for Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Carrie has been remembered not just for her work on-screen and her iconic role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars series, but also her steadfast advocacy of mental health issues and her candor about her own struggles with addiction and mental illness. “I never could take alcohol. I always said I was allergic to alcohol, and that’s actually a definition to alcoholism — an allergy of the body and an obsession of the mind,” Fisher told the Herald-Tribune in 2013. “So I didn’t do other kinds of drugs until I was about 20. Then, by the time I was 21 it was LSD. I didn’t love cocaine, but I wanted to feel any way other than the way I did, so I’d do anything.” As People magazine noted, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds were very close in their final years despite going through some rough patches. “Reynolds also took it upon herself to heal fractured relationships,” the report noted. “After years of tension with daughter Carrie, the two had a rapprochement, maintaining a close relationship until Reynolds’ death.” That may make Debbie Reynolds’ last words about Carrie Fisher even more poignant.

Cindy Crawford Hits Back At Instagram Haters

Cindy Crawford knows she is 50 years old and doesn’t need everybody shouting from the rooftops that she’s not getting any younger, according to Us Weekly. The former Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl says she’s sick of Instagram haters telling her how she’s aged over the years. The stunning @CindyCrawford has not aged a bit! See the photos here! https://t.co/AZgxSHB99I #beautycrew #skincare pic.twitter.com/XpnsrIY4cA — BEAUTYcrew (@beautycrew) May 6, 2016 In her New Beauty winter-spring 2017 cover story, Cindy Crawford said she’s well aware that she’s not going to look young anymore, but it doesn’t mean she needs to be reminded of that. “I don’t need everyone on Instagram pointing out that I don’t look the same way I did when I was 20.” Female celebrities who have been in the public eye for years or decades are facing an unbelievable amount of scrutiny and pressure from the media and Instagram commenters. And Cindy Crawford learned it the hard way. “Sometimes, when you’re in the public eye, it can be hard, and that’s where you kind of have to work on yourself.” But Cindy Crawford couldn’t care less about those Instagram trolls and says she is perfectly fine with aging gracefully. The mother-of-two admitted that no matter what she does, she’ll never look 20 or 30. “I just want to look great for 50.” TV muted & infomercial is on & I see this…@CindyCrawford is beautiful. Hasn’t aged a day. How is this possible?!???? pic.twitter.com/AvLworooww — Jen K (@TV_Jen) February 8, 2016 And she does look great for 50! What’s Cindy Crawford’s secret? The model revealed that she exercises regularly, eats healthy, and takes “really good” care of her skin. Crawford, who’s the mom of models Kaia and Presley, whom she shares with husband Rande Gerber, says modern society is demanding women to do the “undoable.” “But it’s about looking great for however old you are, regardless of what that number is.” Cindy Crawford at the beach: She is robbed by her daughter, Kaia https://t.co/f0J3Ob68DM pic.twitter.com/RuBcWY4BwN — Sivertimes (@TheSiverTimes) December 27, 2016 Cindy Crawford also opened up about the surprises and challenges of being 50 years old. The model admitted that while there are some aging aspects that she had expected – like gray hair – she certainly didn’t expect the texture of her hair to change so much. “It’s gotten much coarser over the years. I look at my daughter and I’m always like, ‘You have my old hair and I want it back!’” Cindy Crawford said that her daughter’s hair looks perfect in the morning even if she goes to sleep with it wet. And the model admits she’s “jealous” of that. The former Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl shared the secret of feeling beautiful and confident at 50 years old. And that secret is: accept the age. Cindy Crawford noted that accepting inevitable parts of aging – such as gray hair – should always be accompanied with feeling good. The former model advises women to be “grateful” for good health and just “enjoy” being 50. No matter how hard Cindy Crawford is trying not to be jealous of her budding model daughters, it must be challenging to look at her daughters and not feel nostalgic. The former model’s daughter, Kaia, has recently made her celebrity mom feel super nostalgic by channeling her famous black-and-white photo shoot, according to ET Online. Kaia collaborated with photographer Brian Bowen Smith to channel her mom Cindy Crawford’s famous black-and-white photo shoot. And the 15-year-old model looks exactly like her mom! While the snapshot is titled Mother, the photoshoot was inspired by the famous model’s photo shoot with late photographer Herb Ritts.

With schools out for the winter holidays, the Duggars are finding themselves with a lot of time on their hands. So it was only a matter of time that one of the Duggar children came up with a fun way to spend time together. While they like to engage in crafts, bowling or household chores, this time, Josiah took the matter into his own hands by making a Mannequin Challenge on YouTube with his siblings. While the heat of Mannequin Challenge has died down, it looks like the Duggars had the time and resources to make the video in between Christmas and New Year’s eve. Check out their take on Mannequin Challenge on their family blog! Most of the older Duggars, like Jill, Jessa, Jana and Jinger, were all missing from the YouTube video that the 20-year-old Duggar expertly shot. That’s because that they were all preoccupied with their own families and, in some cases, their babies! Jill and Jessa managed to spend Christmas together with their babies and husbands, Derick and Ben. Jill managed to snap a photo of their husbands gathered together with baby Spurgeon, Jessa’s first son.

As for Jinger, she is in the thick of nesting in her new home with her husband Jeremy Vuolo. She also just celebrated her 23rd birthday with him so there has not been much time for her to spend with her younger siblings. It’s pretty curious how Jana was missing from this video. It’s possible that, when Josiah was making this Mannequin Challenge YouTube video, she was occupied with doing work around the house. Just recently, she was documented on Duggar family Facebook page that she was baking up a storm in time for them to enjoy Christmas. So it might be good for her to not totally dedicate her time to the young Duggars. She has been looking at a few men, but none of them were right for her to continue on to marriage. “Jana didn’t name her suitors, but she has been attached to several men,” reports Yahoo! Sports. “Not only was she infamously linked to former NFL star Tim Tebow in 2014 (a claim her cousin vehemently denied on her behalf), she was also said to have once had a failed romance with a fellow reality star. In 2015 it was reported that Jana turned down advances from family friend and now-married “Bringing Up Bates” star Zach Bates after having “secret chaperoned dates.” As for the Mannequin Challenge videographer himself, he already has experience on courting young ladies. He used to court Marjorie Jackson, but called things off last summer. “Marjorie and I had a good time together,” he said to People Magazine. “We were just trying to follow God’s lead on everything. She didn’t feel that it was the right timing then, so we called it quits for a bit.” “We have time to grow … you never know,” Josiah added. “But when you think about a girl to marry, you ask what kind of guy she would want to marry and you try to be that kind of guy.” So instead of fixating on finding the right wife at a tender age of 20, Josiah is doing the right thing and expanding his interests and hobbies. Do you think Josiah has more plans to show off his big family in an interesting way on YouTube? Let us know in the comments below! [Featured Image by Duggar Family/Instagram]

Charlie Sheen Tweets 'Dear God, Trump Next, Please' After Debbie Reynolds Dies

Shortly after news broke that Debbie Reynolds had been added to 2016’s extensive list of high-profile deaths, Charlie Sheen took to Twitter to make a morbid request to God. Rather than mourn Reynolds or ask his creator to spare his family, friends, or anyone else after a year that has taken Reynolds and her daughter, Carrie Fisher, in addition to Alan Thicke, Prince, David Bowie, and many more, Sheen took a decidedly less solemn route and asked God to consider taking president-elect, Donald Trump, as 2016’s next celebrity casualty. Dear God; Trump next, please!
Trump next, please!
Trump next, please!
Trump next, please!
Trump next, please!
Trump next, please! ???????? © — Charlie Sheen (@charliesheen) December 29, 2016 Charlie Sheen very likely intended the tweet as a bit of dark humor, but it’s possible the secret service may not take his words quite so lightly. It’s their job to protect the president-elect from harm, and a celebrity requesting his death, even in the form of a tweet addressed to God, may very well fall on their radar of concern.

[Image by Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images] Charlie Sheen has expressed his dislike for Donald Trump before. On an episode of The Graham Norton Show that aired in June, Sheen explains how he received a pair of supposedly expensive cufflinks from Trump about five years ago as an early wedding present when they ran into each other at a dinner. Sheen later had a jewelry appraiser at his house who identified the cufflinks, which Trump identified as platinum and diamond Harry Winstons, a cheap pewter and zirconia costume jewelry. According to CNN, Charlie Sheen in February tweeted a quote from Abraham Lincoln expressing his displeasure at the idea of Trump becoming our next president. “A farce or comedy is best played; a tragedy is best read at home,” Sheen quoted Lincoln, followed by a plea to the entire country. “America please. WAKE UP!” Sheen included the hashtag #AnyoneButTrump with that tweet. Charlie Sheen is certainly no stranger to controversy. You may recall he had a bit of a meltdown in 2011 when he seemed to take over the internet with catch-phrases like “winning” and his supposed “tiger blood.” He later mellowed out and in November of 2015 went public about his HIV diagnosis. At one point, Charlie Sheen was a vocal member of the 9/11 truther movement. According to TMZ, members of the truther community were upset that Sheen abandoned the movement during his 2011 internet rampage where he bragged about crack use, using the services of prostitutes and his claim of having “tiger blood,” which he explained as the reason he was constantly “winning” at life.

If Sheen is looking to get some publicity ahead of the release of his new movie, a tweet calling for the death of the future president is probably going to draw some attention. It may not be exactly the kind of attention his producers want, but it will definitely have people talking. Donald Trump is no stranger to Twitter battles with celebrities who attack him, so it will be interesting to see if he responds to Sheen’s provocation. Trump’s supporters are already responding to Sheen’s tweet, and many of them are not happy. @charliesheen Imagine the outrage if someone tweeted “Obama next, please!” — samechick ???? (@just2groovy) December 29, 2016 Charlie Sheen’s tweet asking God to take “Trump, next please” is probably not going to help to bring together a divided nation. Some people will be outraged, some people will be annoyed, others will agree with him, but many people won’t care because they’ve gotten used to ignoring Charlie Sheen. But if Donald Trump and Charlie Sheen do wind up engaging in a Twitter battle, it certainly does have the potential to be entertaining. [Featured Image by Michael Buckner/Getty Images]
