This Bridezilla Tried To Get Her Bridesmaids To Pay For Her $10,000 Dress

We’ve all dealt with bridezillas. But an anonymous bridesmaid recently took to Mamamia to share the insane demands that her friend Caroline made of her bridesmaids. She starts:

At first, I thought Carol was just being a little overzealous when the group emails asking for input on everything from bridesmaid dress colors, hairstyles, makeup looks, bridal dresses, buttonholes for the groomsmen (something I had to Google) and table decorations came flooding through, quickly taking up a large chunk of my day.

Then she started turning into a bridezilla…

During one particularly busy Friday at work – I’m a high school English teacher, so there’s not a lot of down time – I checked my email during a short break between morning classes.

“Hey Hayley, How’s it going? I need some cake-maker suggestions by COB today please, Jase and I really want to get a wriggle on with this and need the contact details, price brackets, flavours and an idea of how prestigious the vendor is – in a table would be great. Excel is probably best please. Thanks!”

I had to read the email about three times to gauge what she was asking me. After the third disbelieving scan, I felt my blood start boiling.

Was she serious?!

“I have a full time job, for crying out loud, how am I meant to get all this info by then?” I thought, panicked.

But she still did as Caroline asked, cancelling her Saturday plans to get her the information…

Surely it’d be OK if I got the information to her over the weekend? I wanted to be a good bridesmaid but what was she going to do with wedding cake information on a Friday evening? I decided to hedge my bets and replied with my plan to have the info to her the following day, apologising and saying that it was a busy day. Of course she’d be okay with that, wouldn’t she?

After no reply from the bride-to-be, I carried on with my day. On Saturday morning I cancelled my breakfast plans, instead researching Tasmanian wedding cake-makers (she’d decided to have a picturesque destination wedding) that might be suitable. I sent it through to her and had a reply almost immediately.

“Thanks for this, would’ve been really helpful to have it yesterday when specified but I appreciate it.”

Ouch. I put it down to “bridal stress” and got back to my normal life, hoping she wasn’t too mad at me.

But things got even worse, when Caroline fell in love with a dress that cost twice her budget – $ 10,500.

A couple of months later – after three consecutive weekends of searching for bridal and bridesmaid dresses (that ended up costing us all $ 550, mind you) – came the clincher.

Caroline had finally found a stunning satin Marchesa wedding dress that she looked perfect in. The only problem was it cost twice her dress budget – $ 10,500. After many “dooo itttt, you should totally splurge, you only get married once” reassurances for her many bridesmaids, she decided to purchase it.

“Thank the lord, now I can have my weekends back,” I thought to myself, breathing a sigh of relief despite feeling a little guilty about it.

That night, my inbox pinged again with another of the group emails from Caroline that I’d started to dread. The subject line was “Bridesmaid dress contribution” and it made me break out into a cold sweat.

Yes, she wanted the bridesmaids to help pay for her dress.

The latest bridal update was a long email outlining how she and Jase were hugely over their bridal budget now that she’d splurged on the dress. That it was “totally fine if you can’t” but she would really love if we could “pitch in” around $ 150 each towards her “dream dress”. That it’d mean so very much to her and would mean that as she walked down the aisle, she’d be wearing something we’d all had a part in.

Yes, she was essentially asking her bridal party to chip in for her dress. As well as our own outfits, accommodation, the hen’s party, bridal shower and the three spa days she wanted us to plan prior to thewedding. My bank account was already taking a battering from the wedding and now this?

I nearly threw my phone across the room, such was the rage that consumed me. It’s been three days since she sent the email and three of the seven bridesmaids have replied saying they’d love to pitch in for her dress. Whether they genuinely wanted to or not, I just don’t know.

But I’m starting to think I might have to bail on this wedding, and friendship.

This bride has lost her damn mind. Does she actually expect her bridesmaids to help pay for her own dress? If so, she’s going to have some open spots if anyone is interested.

Martha Stewart Just Threw All Of The Shade At Kim K's BFF Jonathan Cheban

Maybe it’s because of her stint in federal prison, but we always had a feeling Martha Stewart could take a b*tch down. She just has that look in her eye. Anyway, she just confirmed our suspicions with The Tweet To End All Tweets. It all happened on the Daily Mail‘s MailOnline yacht in Cannes. Stewart (and presumably, a lot of other famous people) were attending the publication’s ‘Seriously Popular’ party. The real celebrities, it seems, were joined by Kim Kardashian’s official ass kisser best friend and fame whore, Jonathan Cheban. And clearly, Martha is above being at a party with the most inconsequential character in reality TV history. 

The drama started when Cheban posted this photo to his Snap story, calling out Martha’s table manners. 

snap
snapchat

In fairness, we definitely read that in one of her books or blogs, right?

Little did he know, the domestic goddess was tweeting something very important. 

“He says he is well known.” Holy sh*t, Martha. We totally agree, of course, but we didn’t know that the Queen herself was capable of this level of Twitter feuding. And she probably single handedly destroyed his career with that one. 

Twitter was very amused by the shade and totally had her back.

Then she followed up with this gem:

“Who knew?” So sassy, Martha. 

And we should probably address the greatest response to all this shade. 

Very true. 

Apparently it was all in good fun, because Jonathan tweeted a picture of them hanging out. 

We’re a little skeptical, though. 

And, as one Twitter user reminded us:

He can probably handle it. He’s been known to throw some shade as well. 

…He kind of deserves the infamy. Props, Martha.

People Are Losing Their Minds Over Starbucks' Newest Secret Purple Drink

In a world of uncertainties, there are a few constants: gravity, DJ Khaled’s Snapchats, and people going insane over the newest “secret” Starbucks drink. But long gone are the days of freaking out over Starbucks’ Pink Drink on Instagram. Indeed, the Pepto-Bismol  strawberry acai and coconut milk beverage has been overshadowed by a shiny, new, not-so-secret secret drink. 

The Internet’s newest obsession is the #PurpleDrink.

This disgustingly delicious Instagram sensation is a mix of passion fruit iced tea with soy milk, vanilla syrup, and blackberries.

Everyone has taken to Instagram to share their obsession with the world. 

Twitter has also voiced its support. 

Because #PinkDrink is so four weeks ago. 

And for those of you who have been living under a rock, here’s what you need to know about the secret menu. 

Starbucks actually has a menu of “secret drinks” online that has over two hundred recipes, including Snickerdoodle Frappuccino, Peach Cobbler Frappuccino, and Samoa Cookie Frappuccino. For those of you looking to start your day with a delicious kick of diabetes. 

…Now go spend your hard earned money on it. We await all the purple drank jokes to come.

Demi Lovato Just Rage Quit Twitter And Instagram Because Of All The Haters

You might remember Demi Lovato for the unspeakable act of locking her sister, Poot, in a basement and keeping her out of public’s eye for years.

She’s also an incredibly talented singer, to boot, but people can’t seem to help but roast her on social media for the whole Poot fiasco, among other things.

Never one to back down from a good internet fight, Demi fought back in the best way possible: by backing down from an internet fight.

The pop singer has decided to officially call it quits on Instagram and Twitter.

In an effort to shield herself from the negativity of people’s comments on Instagram and Twitter, Lovato has decided to exclusively broadcast her happenings to her fans on Snapchat for a more one-way star-to-fan experience.

Then she got all existential.

Asking deep questions about her own awesomeness. Just why do we hate her so much?

Shame on us.

For all of her Insta and Twitter hating, Demi hasn’t deleted her accounts yet. Maybe she’s just trying to take a break in case she wants to go back to the platforms.

People think the post that broke the camel’s back was this controversial Insta photo and comment Lovato posted, suggesting Ariana Grande was better than Mariah Carey.

“Mariah is a legend and is so talented but constantly disses people. It’s nasty the way she treats Jennifer [Lopez]. Ari did nothing wrong.”

Apparently Mariah’s fans didn’t take too kindly to Lovato’s sacrilege and started hounding her for her anti-Carey comments.

Lovato doesn’t seem too phased by the hate. Here she is on Snapchat, appearing to be doing just fine without all of us tweeting at her and leaving comments on her Instagram.

But seriously, Demi, where’s Poot?

These Badass Women Celebrated Their 100th Birthdays Together As A #Squad

Long before the days of TSwift, Selena Gomez, Cara Delevigne, Karlie Kloss, Hailee Steinfeld, and Gigi Hadid were Gladys, Ruth, and Bernice. Yes, Taylor and the crew have a long way to go before their squad reaches the legitimacy of these three women who celebrated their 100th birthdays together in Washington, D.C. on Saturday. 

Gladys Butler, Ruth Hammett, Bernice Underwood, and the late Leona Barnes were all born in June and July of 1916 and have been best friends ever since.

According to The Washington Post, the four “played jacks and hopscotch and jumped rope together.” They attended the same church for years and three of them even had children in the same year (1933). During the celebration Butler, Hammett, and Underwood sat next to a painting of their missing squad member, Barnes.

It seems like they had quite the birthday celebration. 

The women presented a video in which they discussed their lives and shared their centenarian wisdom (which we should all pay attention to if we’re hoping to make it to 100). Partygoers shared memories and photos of the unbeatable trio throughout the years. Even D.C. local government got involved in the festivities— D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and City Councilman Brandon Todd offered birthday wishes. 

And it wouldn’t be a truly incredible story without Oprah making some kind of appearance. 

One of the ladies’ fellow churchgoers worked as a makeup artist for Oprah Winfrey and convinced the TV Queen to record a video for the original #Squad. Winfrey wished them “the grandest and greatest” birthday, and was in awe of their goddamn longevity. “The things you must have seen over the last century,” she mused.

And, we have to say, we really want to join this particular squad. 

squad

Old age hasn’t seemed to affect them much— Underwood and Butler still live on their own. “I still dance,” Underwood said. “Sometimes by myself.”

There is no detail too intricate to be included, and some cosplayers will spend a hefty amount of money to embody their character to the fullest possible extent.

But the question still remains: how faithful must one be to the canon of their character’s world? Does your gender or appearance limit your cosplaying options?

Star Wars fan Jessica Bentley posed this cosplaying question to Mark Hamill himself, asking if it was acceptable for her to attend Comic Con dressed as Luke Skywalker. 

Bentley asking permission from a man to wear an outfit seems like an incredibly outdated notion, but it is probable that she simply did not want to blaspheme or offend one of her sci-fi heroes. Perhaps she just wanted Luke’s blessing!   

Mark Hamill could have completely ignored the tweet, as most celebs are apt to do. But, instead, the Jedi master responded with an answer that would make any fan (or progressive-minded individual) positively giddy. 

“Gender matters not when you’re rocking the Force like you are, baby!” Hamill assured Bentley. 

This is an incredibly handy remark for Bentley to have in her back pocket, should any haters remark on her female Luke Skywalker.

Plus, it drives home the point that even the original actors believe these iconic franchises deserve to be enjoyed by everyone — regardless of gender.

And yes, I’m lookin’ right at you, Ghostbusters fans.

Because even if nobody is perfect, many are extremely beautiful. Let’s take model Ashley Graham as an example. This woman is absolutely gorgeous, yet all people can focus on is that she is “plus-size.” I hope this label falls into a bottomless pit, never to be recovered. What is the “normal” size when someone who looks like this has to labeled differently?

Graham has been the target of plenty of narrow minded people who want to call her obese and concern troll her about her health. She’s fine. Ashley Graham is fine. She’s also fine with her body, and any of the little things people are so desperate to hide and feel shame about—for instance, cellulite!

In the photo above you can clearly see that Graham is sporting some skin dimples while riding her bike. Here’s what she captioned it with:

A little cellulite never hurt nobody.. Stop judging yourself, embrace the things that society has called ‘ugly’. #lovetheskinyourein #beautybeyondsize

A little cellulite hasn’t hurt Graham or her career. Just imagine if she’d hidden it away all her life. We wouldn’t get pictures like this:

Dress shirts don’t fit around my pecs or arms (cuz I’m so jacked, bro) and their pants, well, I’d have what some would call a “fat ass” or “Kardashian hips” so any lower body wear from the company is completely off the table.

Am I big boy? Yes, I weigh around 215-220lbs depending on whether or not I pooped yet, but I am convinced that H&M’s clothing sizes run small.

And it turns out that this woman, Ruth Clemens has the same problem as I do with the clothing retailer, so she put them on Facebook blast.

Clemens initially posted the picture as a joke to her and her friends to see how ridiculous the sizing at the store was: the jeans she’s trying on in the photo is, unbelievably, a 16.

The 25-year-old wrote to H&M’s facebook page:

“I’m normally a size 14 on my hips (occasionally 16 if buying trousers) so I thought I’d try them on. It did not go well.

As I’m sure you’re aware, size 16 is the largest size you stock (apart from in your plus size range, which is very limited in store and does not offer the range of styles for the fashion-conscious that are available in smaller sizes).

I am not overweight (not that that should matter) and although I’m 5 foot 11 my body is pretty average shape-wise. It’s already difficult enough for me to find clothes that fit well because of my height, why are you making jeans that are unrealistically small?”

And it looks like Clemens wasn’t the only person who has the same issue with H&M.

H&M saw the buzz that Clemens’ post was creating and responded on Facebook.

But people weren’t happy with the retailer’s politic answer.

Now excuse me while I go and try to reduce all this fat on my hips so I can look like a normal human being in some pants.

And now, it seems like that dream is about to get an extra dose of fairytale pixie dust: the pair apparently have another baby on the way. 

Kunis’ rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple is indeed expecting their second child. Kutcher and Kunis were married last July and are already parents to 20-month-old daughter, Wyatt Isabelle.

“Ashton genuinely lights up when talking about Wyatt and the little one on the way,” a source told PEOPLE about Kutcher’s reaction to being a new dad. “Everything about being a father is natural to him.”

Apparently the the couple has been looking forward to expanding their family for a while now. 

“Yeah!” Kunis told Business Insider last year when asked whether she and Kutcher would consider having another baby. “I mean, not today. I’m not pregnant — this isn’t about to become a thing. Not today. But yeah, absolutely, for sure.”

The world awaits this undoubtedly beautiful baby with baited breath. The only thing I ask is please, Mila, for the love of all that is holy, do not name your baby “Jupiter.”

She’s always the first to mock Kim’s diva behavior, and, frankly, her language is vulgar AF… She’s definitely the Kardashian we most want to get drunk with. However, while we loved Khloé from the start, she never got the same kind of attention that Kourtney and Kim did from Hollywood and the general public. That’s changed in recent months— during which she’s opened up about her weight loss. 

In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Khloé talked about how her weight loss has changed the way she’s treated in the fashion world.

“I definitely think the fashion industry, and people in general, look at me more now that I’ve lost weight,” Khloe told the magazine. “Even on shoots, I would never have options for clothing. There would always be this attention on Kourtney and Kim, but I was too much work for [stylists] or they had nothing in my size. I wasn’t even that crazy big!” 

…No, she certainly wasn’t. She looked great. 

Her negative experiences in the entertainment industry did have one upside. 

Being treated badly by stylists taught Khloé who she could trust. She now works exclusively with Monica Rose, the stylist she’s used since the first season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

“At my fattest, Monica would always come with racks of clothes and make me feel special. She never told me, ‘Oh, they don’t have that in your size,'” Khloé said. “Other people actually said, ‘I just can’t work with you’—because I was too big. That always hurt my feelings, of course.” 

And, of course, Koko is getting the last laugh. 

The same body-shaming stylists are now clamoring to work with Khloe since she’s lost weight. But Khlo isn’t about to cave. “I’m just like, ‘F–k you. I’m not going to reward your bad behavior,'” she said.

Preach, Khloé.

She writes:

Below is a picture of Luis Omar Ocasio-Capo. Omar, as his friends and family called him, was a Latino man gunned down at an LGBTQ bar in Orlando last weekend. He was 20-years-old.

Today my dear friend Melinda and I had the sad privilege of attending to his grandmother on our flight as she made her journey to Orlando to join her family during this unspeakable time.

Knowing she was making this hard journey alone, JetBlue employees made sure to be at her side every step of the way. Melinda stood quietly by her wheelchair while we waited until it was time to board. Kellie, the gate agent, boarded with her and helped get her settled. Melinda and I gave her a blanket, a pillow, a box of tissues and water so she could be as comfortable as possible. She was understandably distraught, but met us with kindness and gentleness. And gratitude.

But here’s where our flight got truly inspiring. I had the idea to pass around a piece of paper to everyone on board and invite them to sign it for this grieving grandmother. I talked it over with Melinda and she started the process from the back of the plane. As we took beverage orders, we whispered a heads up about the plan as we went.

Halfway through, Melinda called me, “Kel, I think you should start another paper from the front. Folks are writing PARAGRAPHS.” So I did. Then we started one in the middle. Lastly, running out of time on our hour and fifteen minute flight, we handed out pieces of paper to everyone still waiting.

When we gathered them together to present them to her, we didn’t have just a sheet of paper covered in names, which is what I had envisioned. Instead, we had page after page after page after page of long messages offering condolences, peace, love and support. There were even a couple of cash donations, and more than a few tears.

And that wasn’t the end of it, passengers wanted to give the grandmother even more support when the flight came to an end.

When we landed, I made an announcement that the company had emailed to us earlier in the morning to use as an optional addition to our normal landing announcement, which states “JetBlue stands with Orlando.” Then with her permission and at the request of a couple of passengers, we offered a moment of silence in Omar’s memory.

As we deplaned, EVERY SINGLE PERSON STOPPED TO OFFER HER THEIR CONDOLENCES. Some just said they were sorry, some touched her hand, some hugged her, some cried with her. But every single person stopped to speak to her, and not a single person was impatient at the slower deplaning process.

I am moved to tears yet again as I struggle to put our experience into words. In spite of a few hateful, broken human beings in this world who can all too easily legally get their hands on mass assault weapons – people ARE kind. People DO care. And through our customers’ humanity today, and through the generosity of this wonderful company I am so grateful to work for, I am hopeful that someday soon we can rally together to make the world a safer place for all.

I will never forget today. ‪#‎Orlandoproud‬

Perhaps you have an unwanted mouse or an ant infestation. It’s a pain in the ass, but, trust me, it’s definitely not the worst case scenario. The worst case scenario is when a giant lizard the size of your front door tries to take over your home. Apparently, it can happen. 


Attanai Thaiyuanwong
 from Nonthaburi, Thailand came home on Sunday to find thie huge monitor lizard attempting to break into his house. 

This is not the evil magic of photoshop— the lizard, which appears to be human height, is actually standing on its hind legs with its mouth on the door knob.

Oddly, enough, this might be good news for Thaiyuanwong.

According to Thai tradition, monitor lizards are indicative of good fortune. 

You definitely need to check out the video that Thaiyuanwong posted to Facebook which shows how he and his family attempted to combat their intruder. 

Roughly translated, someone yells: “Hia is in our house. It’s f**king huge! Then, a woman says: “They say if you throw a coin at it, it will go away!”A debate ensues, the dinosaur lizard appears to wag its tail, and everyone screams. Understandably. 

We still don’t know how the lizard was removed, but we’re assuming it was taken off the premises, as Thaiyuanwong was alive to tell the tale on Facebook.

… That harmless mouse is probably seemingly like no big deal now. (h/t mashable)

They’re able to prey on the disenfranchised morons of the world who are filled with angst and rage and have a desire for power because they live all of their lives powerless. Slap some religious, higher-power rhetoric on that sh*t and you’ve got an army of entitled dingbats willing to die for your bullsh*t cause.

I’ve always said for the longest time that the best way to discredit ISIS is to convince everyone they’re trying to recruit that the organization has a secret homosexual agenda. In the Arab and Muslim world, homosexuals are extremely demonized, so all you really need to do is convince young Arab Muslim men in that region that all they want to do is f*ck you once you’re enlisted and ISIS’ recruitment numbers will immediately drop.

Which makes me happy that Anonymous was able to hack a bunch of ISIS social media accounts and populate them with pro LGBT images and posts.

Newsweek reported that links to Gay Porn and Gay Pride messages started popping up on ISIS propaganda pages. Out of respect for Islam, the hackers left out super explicit material, but the message was loud and clear: on face value, ISIS suddenly became gay advocates.

The Anonymous hacker, WauchulaGhost who took responsibility spoke to Newsweek regarding his attack on ISIS:

“I did it for the lives lost in Orlando. Daesh (ISIS) have been spreading and praising the attack, so I thought I would defend those that were lost. The taking of innocent lives will not be tolerated.”

Ghost didn’t reveal his actual identity or location says that he started hacking ISIS accounts months ago, but after the Orlando Shooting, upped his game and decided to get super hacktastic against the hate group.

“Hello World. It’s time I share with you a little secret…I’m Gay and I’m Proud!! #GayPride #OrlandoWillNotBeForgotten !!! #GhostOfNoNation.”

Ghost says that he’s personally responsible for hacking over 200 pro-ISIS accounts, but they’ve been taken down from Twitter, because, you know, the whole terrorism thing isn’t really a good look for a social media brand.

Ghost plans to pursue his cyber attack on ISIS, and is even getting the help of two other hackers, Yeti and Ebony.

This isn’t the first time Anonymous has directed its cyber attacks against ISIS. After the Paris shootings the group released a message to the terrorist organization.

“We are upping our game, you will now be hit by major cyber attacks. We are furious with the repeated slaughter of innocent citizens in the name of a peaceful religion, you clearly don’t respect you (sic) beliefs. And you clearly have no respect for human life and evolution. We are coming to get you, we will be hitting you harder than ever.”

Cyber attacks against ISIS are needed now more than ever, the terrorist organization has had over 125,000 of its accounts suspended from Twitter since mid-2015.

While the segment was all fun and games, it apparently turned very serious when the cameras stopped rolling. In an interview with Radio X, Anthony Kiedis said that he had saved a baby who couldn’t breathe while filming the segment and seemed totally casual about it.

Kiedis said that the car had stopped to film a dance-off, which wasn’t included in the final cut. After the dance off, they were walking to get some Mexican food when a woman came running out of her house yelling that her baby couldn’t breath. 

Kiedis, a father himself, said that he tried to open the baby’s mouth but it was “locked shut.” He then decided to try some “baby CPR” and “started rubbing the belly” of the baby. Suddenly, bubbles came out of the baby’s mouth and the eyes rolled back into place. When an ambulance showed up, he handed over the baby who was now breathing.  

HOW IS HE SO CASUAL ABOUT THIS? And how did this not make it into the segment?! Imagine the ratings!

Remember how the split seemed so amiable that all of the Harris-Swift retrospectives were fairly short-lived, and were soon forgotten in favor of juicier celebrity stories?

Well, friends, those were the good times, and the good times are over. The former relationship has been exhumed and is no longer R.I.P.  

Reasons for the newfound rift are not confirmed, but tabloids were in a frenzy yesterday after photos of the newly-single Swift kissing British dreamboat Tom Hiddleston emerged. 

This turn of events apparently set off an entire sh*tstorm between Swift and Calvin Harris — all via the passive aggressive medium of social media. 

Calvin promptly deleted all traces of his relationship with Swift from his Instagram account. 

Swift, in turn, did the same. 

Don’t feel left out, Twitter! Calvin didn’t forget about you!

Harris also unfollowed T. Swift, blocked her fans, and deleted that deceptively amicable breakup announcement he issued a few weeks ago.  

To top it all off, Harris even sent out this fairly ominous tweet before deleting it:

What does “it’s about to go down” mean, Calvin? Are you going to engage Tom Hiddleston in fisticuffs? Or, as a DJ, does this simply mean you’re dropping the bass? 

We may never find out, but, for now, we have this very charming video of Hiddleston and Swift engaging in a dance-off at this year’s Met Gala to clue us in to the pair’s initial flirtations:

The mutual dancing dorkiness should be indicative of a sufficiently-adorable union, but the whole Calvin Harris debacle is currently casting a huge shadow over the (possible) new couple’s courtship, especially with rumors of Taylor’s possible infidelity floating around. Since Swift and Hiddleston met before the Calvin Harris breakup, their quick pairing-off following the split has certainly raised a few eyebrows — and leads fans to wonder if there wasn’t some canoodling going on before Taylor was properly single. 

The whole thing is surprisingly messy, considering the quiet dignity with which Harris and Swift ended the relationship.

It just goes to show: people who say breakups can be amicable are a bunch of damn liars.

My wife can’t walk through the mall without some uppity teenagers cat-calling her, even while she’s pushing our son in a stroller. Which makes for some unfortunate run-ins with me, and by run-ins, I mean them getting slapped in the face.

And while my wife was very, very pregnant, she thought that the unwanted advances would stop because, hello, she’s kind of preoccupied here. Turns out that wasn’t the case.

Which is something Australian blogger Meg Ireland discovered in a pretty disgusting way.

You see, Ireland’s Instagram photo, above, went viral. But not because it’s an amazing demonstration of how the human body can amazingly adapt in order to create life, but because a pregnant woman fetish site started sharing her photo for men to fap to.

The worst part was, the photo was used by fetishists to encourage other moms to share their baby bump photos to help beef up their collection.

“I see so many people upload their bump pics and now I just gasp and hope to god they don’t get into the hands of someone they shouldn’t. We shouldn’t have to worry about people stealing our photos, but unfortunately it happens ALL THE TIME!”

Ireland went on to say that tons of pregnant mamas’ pics ended up on the site without their knowledge.

“People would say I should only blame myself for uploading ‘personal pictures’ and that it was my own fault (even though my profile was then private). I see it differently. I didn’t care that someone had screen shot my photo to show someone, it’s was what they did with my photo that made me physically sick to my stomach.”

She warned her fans about the dangers of posting pregnancy pics on the web and received an overwhelming response of thanks and support.

My son’s just five days short of being 9 months old, so I’m not expecting any gifts from the little booger except from some burps, coos, and near death experiences as he tries to come to grips with the fact that he can’t actually climb walls. Until then I’ll get sh*ttily drawn pictures, half-assed breakfasts in bed, wallets, cheap cologne, and other cheap swill they try to tell you Dads love. 

If I sound bitter it’s because Father’s day just seems kind of ridiculous. Ya’ll should be giving your loved ones recognition for the sh*t they do on a daily basis, and not do it just because a stupid f*cking flyer came in the mail telling you its time to buy dad something.

Some of the “Featured Dads” cost a little more, but that’s because they have some special skills – like owning a trampoline.

Wysaski shared the page on his Twitter comedy account, obviousplant, and even created a local TV ad.

He said:

“Iraq, crooked as hell. How about bringing baskets of money – millions and millions of dollars – and handing it out? I want to know who were the soldiers that had that job, because I think they’re living very well right now, whoever they may be.”

Hope Hicks, the Trump campaign communications director, quickly back peddled by saying that Trump was referring to Iraqi soldiers. But that wasn’t good for Iraq war veteran Corbin Reiff. He was in charge of foreign claims, which would compensate Iraqi citizens for damage done by the US army. He was entrusted for a lot of cash, and wasn’t too happy with Trump accusing him of siphoning it off. 

He ended the series of tweets with a photograph of him and his interpreter.

Harington, unfortunately, is already in an IRL relationship with Ygritte, I mean, Rose Leslie. And Jon Snow is a fictional reanimated corpse. Happily, there’s a wonderful Jon Snow lookalike on the scene to give you hope that your own personal Jon Snow is just a hair growth away. Meet Josiah Martin:

Martin was discovered by Elle Magazine, who shared a few of his Instagram pics where he is looking longingly into the mirror of a bathroom selfie. Josiah Martin is definitely super cute, but he’s also a pretty regular guy. Which means that any of us could probably meet someone with the propensity to grow wavy curls and then just wait. Jon Snow will appear in time:

Somewhat hilariously, Martin had no idea that he was about to be inundated with thirsty GoT fans on his Instagram feed:

Typically though, pin-up models were always portrayed as white, like Marilyn Monroe. But there were plenty of pinup models of color who helped popularize the fashion movement, like Esther Jones, the original inspiration for Betty Boop.

One man in Ontario, Canada, decided to take matters into his own hands when he saw a dog locked inside a car when temperatures were more than 90 degrees.

Wilson Costa, who shot a video of the scene and posted it on Facebook, told Today the owners hadn’t been seen for about 50 minutes despite an announcement asking them to get their dog out of the car.

One unidentified man evidently couldn’t wait any longer, smashing the back window with a rock and unlocking the door. The dog was soaking wet as the man pulled him to safety, “you’re so gross,” one bystander jokingly remarks as the dog celebrates. “Yeah I know, your owner is an asshole,” she adds. 

It’s legal to break into a car if an animal is in imminent danger in a couple of states. These include Arizona, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, Tennessee, California, Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan and Massachusetts.

“Ask the gays what they think and what they do in not only Saudi Arabia, but many of these countries, and then you tell me who’s your friend: Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?”

No matter where you look, there he is, in all his monochromatic, orange glory. We could all probably use a break from this raging Tomato Man. 

And yet, every so often, a Donald Trump mention comes along that actually renews our collective faith in humanity’s ability to discern “crooked” politicians from flat-out lunatics. 

Lori Mae Hernandez, a 13-year-old comedian, recently showed off her political comedy chops during a 2-minute time slot on America’s Got Talent. The aspiring standup managed to slip a not-so-subtle dig at Donald Trump into her routine — because even adolescents know that a country run by Trump is a terrifying thought indeed. 

As Hernandez put it:

My only qualification to be a babysitter is that I used to be a baby. That’s crazy! That’s like saying, “Hey, you’re sick a lot. You wanna be my doctor?” Or, “Weren’t you the host of a reality show? Wanna be President of the United States?”

The young comedian didn’t even need to call Trump out by name, as everyone on planet Earth is well-aware of his days on The Apprentice.

The crowd’s reaction to Hernandez’s Trump-slap? A rousing standing ovation, of course. Because children should be heartily encouraged to speak the truth at all times. 

Also, can we just take minute to appreciate this 13-year-old’s confidence and stage presence? I mean, the rest of us were stuffing our bras with toilet paper at her age, and here she is, slaying a standup set. Here’s hoping Lori Mae sticks with her standup, because the world of comedy could definitely use all the smart, funny women it can get.

And as more information surfaces about each victim, the story becomes even more painful It’s hard not to tear up at the story of 49-year-old Brenda Marquez McCool who was one of the forty-nine victims that night. 

McCool sacrificed herself to save her son, Isaiah, from the gunfire.

McCool had been at Pulse, ordering drinks with her son at the bar when the gunshots rang out. As the two ran for cover, she was shot in the back. Isaiah stopped to help his mother but she insisted he run without her. “Just run, go,” she told him. 

Before the tragedy, the two had been enjoying some mother-son time.

“They were having fun,”McCool’s niece, Nelia Rodriguez, told People. “They posted a video in the hours before the shooting – she was dancing. Anytime someone invited her somewhere she would just go and she would enjoy herself.”

The mother and son pair had been out trying to enjoy themselves and forget about McCool’s health troubles.

She had survived one bout of cancer and was currently battling leukemia.  “She tried to keep herself from getting upset about what she was going through with her cancer,” Rodriguez said. 

McCool will be remembered as “an upbeat, great mother.”

“She was an awesome lady,” Rodriguez told People. In addition to being a great mother, she was a friend to her children. “She was a cool mom. She was really down-to-earth and open-minded.” We certainly don’t know too many parents who go out bar hopping with their children, so we believe it.

McCool leaves behind eleven children, ranging from nine to 24-years-old. 

Her family friend, Wilson Cruz, paid tribute to her on Facebook, praising her resilience and unwavering support for her LGBT family. 

And the story gets even sadder.

She had recently reunited with her ex-husband, and the two planned on remarrying. And McCool’s positive attitude kept her going. “She thought many times she would survive it. Her positive way is what kept her alive … She acted like there was nothing wrong with her,” Rodriguez said. “She was happy all the time. She tried not to talk about it.”

And, according to Rodriguez, she made the most of the time she had. “She just wanted to enjoy life.” (h/t people)

She and her owner, Nina, have been soulmates since the day they met in 2002 at the Riverside County Animal Shelter. Nina has lovingly chronicled Daisy’s ups and downs with adorable pup pictures that belong in a calendar or dog treat ad. Sadly, though, Daisy’s journey came to an end after sixteen happy years, so Nina posted the sweetest tribute to her bestie. 

In a Tumblr post that shattered our hearts, Nina remembered how she and Daisy came to be.

“She wagged her tail at me and I just had to get her out of there,” Nina wrote. “But I never thought she would be my dog. She was only 2 ½ years old, and I was an old dog person. But she was my dog.”

It wasn’t always smooth sailing with Daisy.

She used to not get along with dogs,” Nina told BuzzFeed. “It took eight years of doing behavior shaping on every walk until she was totally cool with dogs.”

And the poor pup had seizures— though she rocked some pretty cool goggles to protect herself.

“Daisy had focal seizures that were triggered by bright light,” Nina said. “So I bought her the Doggles and thought if they weren’t helpful or if she hated them, I was only out 15 bucks.”

But Daisy loved her ‘Doggles,’ and wore them everywhere with pride.

…Even if they didn’t always fit perfectly.

And, despite her challenges, she had a pretty great life.

She had over 2,000 Twitter followers, she ate pizza, and she was a proud Mets fan. 

…Not that she was ever rewarded for her loyalty. 

But, eventually, she got older and her health deteriorated.

“Her hind legs got weaker, her gait wobbly, even just standing, she would list to the side,” Nina wrote on Tumblr. “She wasn’t in any pain, but going for a walk became going for a stare. The seizures which were initially helped by her awesome sunglasses started getting worse.”

And she really began to struggle.

“Daisy has also been suffering from dementia,” Nina wrote. “The medication helped: she would stare off into space for a few moments a day, [and] get lost occasionally against a wall.”

So Nina and her husband, Will, recognized that Daisy didn’t have the quality of life she deserved, and they made the difficult decision to let Daisy go.

“While her physical needs were taken care of, mentally Daisy just wasn’t there,” Nina said. “She was anxious, she was confused, she was lost. She had no joy.”

But their goodbye to Daisy needed to reflect the impact she had on everyone who knew her. 

“Daisy was my dog. Then she was Will’s dog. Then she was the internet’s dog,” Nina wrote. “She was my heart. Today I chose to break it.” …So we’re ~tearing up~ big time, over here.

Daisy sent out this final tweet, so our “tearing up” has evolved to full on sobbing. 

RIP Daisy. We bet you’re still rockin’ those goggles, wherever you are now. (h/t buzzfeed)

The anger over an inappropriately mitigated sentence was then compounded by Turner’s victim’s powerful and heartbreaking letter in which she described, in excruciating detail, the trauma she’d experienced over the past year. Letters scolding Turner and his sympathizers flooded the Internet and outraged survivors called for Persky’s removal. Now, it looks like all the protesting may finally pay off, and the California judge will be facing the consequences of his recent decisions. 

In protest, jurors were refusing to serve on any of the California judge’s court cases. And now Persky’s been removed from an upcoming sexual assault case.

In the upcoming sexual assault case, a San Jose nurse allegedly raped an unconscious, anesthetized patient. Hmmm, disturbingly familiar circumstances, right? The prosecution, in a rare move, filed a motion to remove Persky from the case. This “papering” motion comes in the wake of jurors’ refusal to serve in his courtroom and Persky tossing out a misdemeanor theft trial before it could reach a jury.

Technically, according to District Attorney Jeff Rosen, Perky was removed due to his dismissal of the misdemeanor.

However, Rosen was pretty clear that Persky’s less-than-stellar record in the past few months was also to blame. The D.A. delivered a prepared statement, saying:

“We are disappointed and puzzled at Judge Persky’s unusual decision to unilaterally dismiss a case before the jury could deliberate. After this and the recent turn of events, we lack confidence that Judge Persky can fairly participate in this upcoming hearing in which a male nurse sexually assaulted an anesthetized female patient.”

Yeah, we’re all “lacking confidence” that he can treat any sexual assault case with the consideration it deserves. 

It’s still unclear whether Perky will be removed from all sexual assault cases that he may be assigned in the future. 

…Fingers crossed.

You have RSVP’d to Queen Bey’s party, and that is a sacred agreement. 

That’s how Beyoncé fan Chelsey Bunner viewed the matter, anyway. After having her wisdom teeth removed at 6 pm, the tenacious member of the Beyhive promptly rushed over to the Beyonce show that was part of the Formation tour. Apparently Bunner’s mom purchased the tickets months ago, and Chelsey didn’t want the tickets to go to waste.

Naturally, Chelsey came prepared, with a sign proudly declaring the explanation for her puffy face and gauze-filled mouth. 

Bunner even packed some portable ice packs to wrap around her face — after all, you don’t want any swelling to distract from Beyoncé and her ladies gettin’ in formation.

“BEST NIGHT EVER besides the fact I could barely sing along … @Beyonce your beauty is unreal,” Chelsey tweeted after the show. 

So, basically, if you thought you were a Beyoncé superfan, you will never be a truly dedicated follower until you attend a concert with a mouth full of blood.

Makeup artist and blogger Laura Jenkinson has managed to combine the two into our favorite Instagram makeup series of all time. As part of the Instagram-wide 100 Days of Makeup Challenge, Jenkinson created some seriously impressive lip art of all of our favorite cartoon characters.

This wouldn’t be an accurate representation of the cartoon world without Homer Simpson.

And we needed a throwback to our Rugrats days with Chuckie. 

Obviously, Patrick needed to make an appearance.

And she needed to pay homage to the Powerpuff Girls.

Continuing with the cartoon character girl power theme, she had to give some love to Tina.

She had to throw in at least one character from Frozen. For the kids. 

And what’s the point of even doing lip art if you aren’t going to paint Stewie on your mouth?

… And she couldn’t forget Cartman.

She hit us hard with the Ice Age nostalgia.

And we’re ~not~ immediately tearing up just at the sight of any character from Up.

We’d actually forgotten the greatness that was Dexter’s Laboratory until this look. 

And we’ve been inspired to re-watch Monsters Inc. for the millionth time, thanks to Mike Wazowski.  

Of course, there had to be a shoutout to the behind-the-scenes heroes of the Disney Princess movies. 

She’s not just gifted in cartoon lip art— check out her Kylie Jenner design.

Last, but not least, she does a disturbingly accurate Donald Trump.

You can check out all of Jenkinson’s incredible masterpieces on her Instagram…. And then spend the rest of the day reminiscing and watching cartoons

Two vastly different experiences that were basically the same: plus or minus crippling depression.

And although I was in state of self-denial constantly telling myself I didn’t want love even though I was looking for love on Tinder, I knew I’d never find it, or anything worthwhile on there, unless you’d call disappointment worthwhile.

But it turns out they’re some people who actually find love on Tinder (I know someone who’s been in a fantastic relationship with someone they met on there), and they find a lot more.

Like a kidney donor.

Alana Duran and Lori Interlicchio met on Tinder and instantly hit it off. Alana was diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 12, had hip replacement surgery, and is currently living on dialysis.

She’s also been searching for a kidney donor since 2011 and said in an interview with TODAY that Lori didn’t come to her rescue, her situation “might have been life or death.”

The best part was, Alana had no idea that Lori was a match for her kidney. Interlicchio posted a surprise video on Facebook revealing the happy news, and yes, things got hella emotional.

Interlicchio packed a box filled with gifts for her boo, and when Duran reached the bottom, she was greeted with this.

Duran, stunned by the news, really didn’t know what was going on until she saw this amazing Tinder-inspired card.

She immediately cried tears of joy, “Oh my God! This is amazing. I have to call my mom!” She says in the video.

Lori had to be super extra sneaky to ensure that the surprise wasn’t spoiled for Alana.

Interlicchio, a 22-year-old cheerleading coach and paraprofessional aide, and Duran, a 25-year-old Stonybrook student, met on the app on August 27th of last year.

“I remember the first time she texted me. I said, ‘It’s Lori,’ and she responded, ‘Lori Loughlin? My favorite actress from Full House?!’ And sent a picture of Lori Loughlin. I knew she was the kind of person who would make me laugh a lot.” Interlicchio told TODAY.

They first met on Fire Island, NY, where they were both heading for Labor Day day weekend, and it sounded hella magical.

“[We spent an] afternoon and evening dancing with each other and talking (which was more like yelling because of the music).When it was time for her to go she asked if she could kiss me and I said, ‘Yes!’ It was an excellent first kiss!” Duran said.

The amazing part is that Lori began searching if she was a potential transplant candidate for Duran from their “third or fourth date.” Damn.

They didn’t expect their story to go viral, and only posted the video for their family and friends to see. But since this is the internet and awesome stuff has the potential to spread fast, people caught wind of the amazing story between the two lovers.

“When we posted the video, it was really for our family and friends to see. We had no idea how much love and support we were going to get from strangers from around the world. It’s been really surreal.”

Alana had her transplant surgery back in February and so far, it’s been a success!

She provides regular health updates on her Facebook page and so far, so good.

The two women are also staunch advocates of LGBT rights, using their internet fame to help spread messages of love on the web.

Duran commented on the recent Orlando shooting.

And Interlicchio is vocal as well.

Interlicchio also expressed her thankfulness for being able to donate for Duran, but knows that gay Men aren’t offered the same privilege:

“I love the outpouring of love and support that Alana and I have been receiving, but it pains me to know that if we were a couple of gay men, my kidney would be considered at risk. While I might be able to donate a kidney to her, I wouldn’t be able to donate blood or tissue. I feel strongly that our federal government should be able to look past a person’s sexual orientation in deciding whether or not they are suitable to give the gift of life.”

Hero Takes Matters Into His Own Hands After A Dog Was Left In A Boiling Hot Car

It’s getting warm out, and it happens to be getting even warmer if you’re wearing fur. One man in Ontario, Canada, decided to take matters into his own hands when he saw a dog locked inside a car when temperatures were more than 90 degrees.

Wilson Costa, who shot a video of the scene and posted it on Facebook, told Today the owners hadn’t been seen for about 50 minutes despite an announcement asking them to get their dog out of the car.

One unidentified man evidently couldn’t wait any longer, smashing the back window with a rock and unlocking the door. The dog was soaking wet as the man pulled him to safety, “you’re so gross,” one bystander jokingly remarks as the dog celebrates. “Yeah I know, your owner is an asshole,” she adds. 

It’s legal to break into a car if an animal is in imminent danger in a couple of states. These include Arizona, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, Tennessee, California, Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan and Massachusetts. 

So if you live in one of those states and don’t want your BMW trashed, don’t leave your dog in there.
