A&E first suspended the Robertson patriarch after his controversial GQ interview had people's jaws on the floor. It seems after the fans petitioned, the sponsors stood by the show and the family spoke out in support of Phil, A&E had a change of heart.
A&E shared their decision this afternoon, "As a global media content company, A+E Networks’ core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect. We believe it is a privilege for our brands to be invited into people’s home and we operate with a strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principals. That is why we reacted so quickly and strongly to a recent interview with Phil Robertson. While Phil’s comments made in the interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs, and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the 'coarse language' he used and the misinterpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would 'never incite or encourage hate.' We at A+E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article, and reiterate that they are not views we hold."
In her new Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog Brandi says she is done apologizing. Which leads me to wonder if Brandi knows the difference between apologizing and justifying because I don't much remember her apologizing to begin with!
To prove that she is like so over being sorry-ish, Brandi posted a slew of family photos on twitter of her mom, dad, and grandma flipping off all the "haters". We can suck it, says Miss. Sorry, Not Sorry!
"As of today I have a new outlook. No more feeling sorry for myself because I had a rough year or some pathetic, phony famewh— can't stop talking about me and throwing bulls— labels my way," Brandi begins, again blaming Joyce Giraud for her behavior. #SomePeopleNeverLearn
First she started dating Kanye West. Then she dyed her hair Beyoncé-blonde. Well now it seems Kim Kardashian is internet stalking Kanye's real true love!
Life & Style reports that Kim is so obsessed with being as relevant as Beyoncé that she is constantly keeping track of her everything via the interwebs! "She Googles her multiple times a day," an insider reveals of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
Big Brother's Britney Haynes recently expressed frustration over inaccurate information on the internet about daughter Tilly's health. On December 12, co-star Shane Meanley tweeted, "Answered prayers for Britney and her family! Surgery wasn't required for Tilly and the doctors believe the cancer is all gone." Britney took to her personal blog last week to explain why she was upset (not with Shane) – and to give fans an official update on Tilly.
Britney confirmed her family checked into St. Jude's Hospital on December 9. "We had traveled to St. Jude’s for Tilly’s resection surgery," she added. "After completing further scans, they determined that the surgery was ultimately too risky for the potential benefits and decided not to operate. So rather than spending the next week in ICU, we were on our way home the next day! Ryan and I were absolutely thrilled with this news. It was really more than either of us could have asked, given that we were informed at the beginning of her protocol that additional surgery would be involved."
Are you looking for books to add to your 2014 reading list? Teen Mom 2 star Grumpy CatKailyn Lowry recently shared that her memoir Pride Over Pityis coming soon to a book store near you!
Kail isn't joking about the long process. We first shared news about her book in April – and she said it was almost ready to go then. About the book, Kail originally tweeted, "Not so much about being a teen mom — more about living with an addict and absent father resulting in where I am now."
It was a very crazy Christmas for the ladies of Mob Wives. While I realize they filmed long ago, it's fun to bring their antics into present day. Santa probably didn't leave what he planned for Renee Graziano thanks to her behavior last night. Come to think of it, most of the girls deserved big lumps of coal!
After Natalie Guercio called out Renee's VH1 hire-a-date delicious, all hell broke loose, giving us a story line for last night's episode. We begin with Renee and son AJ dining with his new (?) girlfriend and Michael, Renee's latest love interest. Michael is late. Renee forgives his indiscretions and orders several bottles of wine. Xanax is her issue, so wine is fine. Is that how recovery works?
Michael tries to impress Renee's son with his rapper connections, but AJ isn't biting. When Michael reveals that he has somewhere else to be after this dinner, things go down hill. Renee blames Natalie for introducing Michael to her craziness with Natalie's "delicious smelling" comment. AJ tries to be the voice of reason, but we know it's all for naught. Michael exits (did they even have apps?), and Renee questions the relationship.
Well, this is certainly a Festivus for the rest of us! Perhaps some people may even call it a Christmas miracle. I don't know who those people are, but if you encounter one of them, I would avoid them at all costs.
Apparently Amina Buddafly, one-third of the most awkward and dramatic love triangle in the history of Love & Hip Hop, is preggers. This should make for good television, right?
