Chrissy Teigen Promised Kim Kardashian An 'Air Mattress' After Kanye West Tweeted This

Chrissy Teigen Promised Kim Kardashian An ‘Air Mattress’ After Kanye West Tweeted This

It seems like every time Chrissy Teigen tweets, it’s a bit of an event.

Whether she’s duking it out with vegans, explaining why she didn’t take her husband’s last name, or pointing out that annoyed radio show hosts look like thumbs, Teigen always delivers.

And Teigen doesn’t need to just sassily respond to trolls or former reality TV stars that managed to get elected President of the United States either, she also has some pretty hilarious exchanges with other celebrities.

Like when she read this tweet from a series of messages Kanye West had for aspiring creatives.

Something that Kim Kardashian made a joke about, you know, seeing as she is his wife and all.

Teigen, ever the good samaritan, offered up her air mattress just in case Kim was part of the “creative cleaning out process.” As if Kim would ever sleep on one of those things, anyway. Remember, this is the same woman who was once making $ 1 million a minute selling emojis.

Kim furthered the joke asking the hypothetical question on everyone’s minds in this fantasy: oh, what of the children?!

Do the husbands needs to get involved? Will another musician get what West meant by the tweet?

Teigen, seeing a fellow mother’s pain, offered her up an elegant guest house solution.

While fun and definitely just the thing to lift one’s spirits up, I hear you can feel everything when the other person moves when you’re trying to sleep. Less than ideal if you need a solid 8.

Before the joke went too far, Kim wanted to let the world know that she was, indeed, just joking around with her pal.

In case you’re wondering which tweets Kim’s referring to, Kanye recently sent out a series of tweets with some advice for hopeful creatives out there.

Although Kanye’s known for a colorful personality and to be a bit eccentric, his pointers were legitimately helpful.

He told artists to value their ideas and also prioritize their work over distractions or other contractual obligations, i.e. “money jobs” and things of that nature.

Then came the fateful tweet that was an extended thought of the “distraction” one.

And he urged creative minds to focus on the love in their work and not the fear.

Now even though his tweets were freely available, it didn’t stop some people from thinking (or joking) that it was a cryptic way of him calling it quits with Kim K.

While some were a bit more vocal of their understanding that it was a joke.

Yes, even millionaire celebrities joke with their friends on Twitter, who also happen to be millionaire celebrities, just like you and your friends. Minus the millionaire part. And the fame and celebrity status. And the friends.

Guy Accidentally Finds Out Wife Named Their Son After Her First Love

Letting go of the past is tough, especially when it involves an event or person who affected you on a deeply emotional level.

And when your relationship with that person comes to an end and you’re feeling rejected, it can hurt a lot.

There’s a reason why the most popular songs are all about heartbreak. It’s because we all know the feeling. Heck, even if you never went through a particularly painful breakup, you can still imagine what it would be like, because the longing for a significant other is a feeling that’s so deeply ingrained in pretty much everyone.

Now I know this might comes as a shock, but believe it or not, some people start new relationships with people even when they’re not over another person.

In fact, they’ll keep going in a new relationship even when they’re secretly wishing they can be back with their ex! The nerve, right? As common as this reality of life is,  there are some people who take their obsession with their ex way too far. Like this woman who seemingly thought she would be slick and name the son she had with her new man after her first love.

The worst part? The guy had no idea and found out in probably the worst way possible.

Reddit user BillNyes-InnerThigh dished out how the unfortunate discover occurred in Reddit’s Relationship Advice subreddit asking fellow internet peeps for some advice on how to proceed with this shocking discovery.

But there are some things that make this particular discovery somehow even worse. Like the fact that his wife’s ex’s name is a really unique one.

So it’s not like something you can delude yourself into thinking it’s a common name and a total coincidence.

Shockingly enough, it’s a common occurrence for people who are still obsessed with their ex to name their kid after them. Like this dude’s brother-in-law.

And there was this woman’s mother who gave her daughter the effeminate version of her ex’s name and then named her son this dude’s middle name.

OP promised to update the good people of Reddit once he confronts his wife about the name.

There were some people who began coming up with worst case scenarios.

While others tried to find a way to humanize his wife in this situation.

Not like the fact that they died would make it OK, but it does, in a morbid way, make it not as bad.

However, OP doesn’t think that this is the case.

Others came up with a not-so-traumatizing way for the kid to change his name.

Although when he gets older and learns the truth, it might mess him up.

One Week After Couple Adopts Triplets, Their Doctor Gives Them This News

Sometimes destiny can throw you a curveball. This is particularly true in the case of Sarah and Andy Justice, a Tulsa, Oklahoma couple desperately longing to be parents. After years of unsuccessful attempts at conception, the Justices decided it was time to consider adoption.

Yet, like their three long years waiting to conceive, the adoption process proved equally frustrating. Still, the couple persevered and was soon given the chance to adopt not just one, not two, but three babies. Once the triplets were born, however, something unbelievable happened… 

Facebook

Sarah and Andy Justice had been married for three years and while they were loving life together, they were missing one, vital thing: children of their own. It wasn’t for lack of trying, mind you, they just hadn’t had any luck conceiving. After three years of waiting, it seemed they would have to look into some sort of help. 

Sarah and Andy decided that it was time to seek the advice of a fertility expert. In early 2014, the two traveled from their home in Tulsa, OK to St. Louis, MO to enlist the aid of a fertility specialist. The Justices drove for nearly six hours, but when they got there, they received more bad news…

The specialist told the couple that while they were perfect candidates for in-vitro fertilization treatment, there was still only a 10% chance that they would ever become pregnant. The process was also a bit more invasive than the couple had been prepared for. What’s more, the process wasn’t exactly going to be cheap, either. 

iStock

As it turns out, in-vitro fertilization costs a pretty penny. The process would cost the Justices between $ 30,000 and $ 60,000. Between the extremely prohibitive cost and the fact that even if they did try it, it might not work, the couple decided that this was not the right path for them. So they went to the next logical step: adoption… 

Screengrab

Even adoption had certain difficulties attached to it, however. For one, the process can take years to finalize, and the Justices were, like most people who opt to adopt, interested primarily in newborn babies. Still, they were willing to do whatever they had to in order to get the ball rolling, including a series of interviews. 

Screengrab

As part of the adoption process, Sarah and Andy had to be interviewed by prospective birth mothers in order for them to determine if the couple would be suitable as parents. The interviews, while cordial and successful in the end, were exhausting and nervewracking for the Justices. Sadly, their struggle to build their family was far from over… 

Screengrab

The Justices had been accepted as adoptive parents on two separate occasions, following the interviews. Yet in both cases, the birth mothers had changed their minds at the last minute. Just when it seemed like everything was going smoothly, they had to start all over again. But they were not about to give up that easily. 

istock

Finally, when they were at their lowest, the Justices received a call. One of their expectant mothers had accepted them as parents. They met with her again and even went with her to an ultrasound appointment. Everything appeared perfectly normal during the scan, but there was one little surprise that neither the mother nor the Justices had planned on: the woman was having triplets… 

Facebook

Rather than try and renege on the agreement, the Justices decided to move forward with the adoption and accept all three babies. The papers were signed, after all. Sarah and Andy were about to become the proud parents of three beautiful newborns. It was not something they were initially prepared for… 

Screengrab

As a matter of fact, the situation actually suited the couple perfectly. They had already planned on having more than one child but had dreaded the prospect of undergoing adoption process a second time. It seemed that now they had the perfect situation: multiple children all at once. Soon they were ready to meet their newborn triplets… 

Facebook

The babies, Hannah, Joel, and Elizabeth, were born in May 2013. In yet another twist of fate, the triplets were born eight weeks early. The tiny little babies weighed only about three pounds each, which meant that they had to be kept in neonatal intensive care for some time before they could go home with their new parents.

A week after their premature birth, Sarah Justice decided to go to a doctor’s appointment by herself. The stress of the whole situation had been affecting her health slightly and she wanted to make sure she was feeling better by the time the triplets came home. When the doctor finally came in, he had some unbelievable news; she was not sick, she was pregnant. It was a miracle, and what’s more, she was expecting twins… 

Facebook

Fate is a funny thing. While this amazing, and unlikely, occurrence would have felt like bad timing to most people, the Justices saw the humor in it. The irony of the situation wasn’t lost on them either, or the difficulty that would come with raising five children all under a year old. But Sarah and Andy were mentally and emotionally prepared for what was to come. 

Facebook

They were, of course, shocked, even slightly overwhelmed by the news, who wouldn’t be? But they had been longing for a family of their own for so long, they couldn’t help but she the unique situation as a true blessing. Soon they had welcomed their biological twins, Andrew and Abigail, into their home as well. It was going to be a big adjustment… 

Facebook

The situation wasn’t easy, obviously. With five hungry babies, the couple didn’t sleep a whole lot in the first few months. Luckily, Sarah and Andy had the support of their community and their family. Friends, neighbors, members of their parish, everyone pitched in to help and provide for the new family of seven. 

Members of Tulsa’s Eastland Baptist Church began to send over food for the family as well. They sent cooked meals, frozen dinners, and baby formula. Their friends at church even offered to help watch the five Justice babies while the couple was away at work. And it wasn’t just food and time their friends provided, either… 

Facebook

Diapers, bottles, blankets, clothing: it all came pouring in from donations around Tulsa. The supplies were sorely needed. The five infants went through a whopping 300 diapers and 84 bottles every week. And because it was such a task getting the kids from place to place, they had to get a bigger van. 

Facebook

Sarah and Andy had a little trouble telling the babies apart at first, despite their slight age difference. To fix this, they came up with a system. The boys were easy enough, for obvious reasons. But for their older daughters, Hannah and Elizabeth, the parents used different colored toenail polish. Soon, the Justices were internet celebrities… 

The story of the Justice clan instantly went viral and in the three years that passed since the Justices became parents, they have gained an impressive Facebook following. The world is constantly looking at their fantastic photos and updates. In fact, the couple who thought they’d never be parents, even welcomed a sixth child in January of 2016. 

Facebook

Despite the crazy demands that the Justices’ face each and every day, they say they wouldn’t change it for the world. Their lives have become all about the babies, but they both feel that it’s a good thing. “It was something we’ve wanted so badly that we love it,” says Sarah Justice. “We just really love having these children.”

Questionable Photos Of Lewis Hamilton Emerge Online After Transphobic Statement

Lewis Hamilton is someone I had never heard of in my life before he was getting raked over the coals for shaming his nephew on Instagram. 

That’s because he’s British and races cars, which are two things I have no connection to. I do, however, hate when people are mean to kids, especially when the kids are just having an innocent good time. 

Hamilton has deleted the video that sparked the initial controversy, but it’s been captured for posterity online. In it, he yells at his nephew for asking for a princess dress for Christmas. The boy seems to be having fun, and giggles shyly when his uncle turns the camera on him. 

It’s hard to know if he is damaged by this interaction, but it kinda sucks that Hamilton is working out his gender issues on a kid for no reason. Yelling at someone won’t make them not want the princess dress; it’ll only make them feel bad about it. 

Hamilton has since apologized, but many people think it’s too little too late.

So they’ve brought out the big guns—the photos of Hamilton in his own ridiculous outfits.

Now I know four things about Hamilton. He’s British, he races cars, he is kinda homophobic, and he’s a godawful dresser. Which everyone on Twitter is having fun pointing out:

Other users just blasted Hamilton in general. 

Look, I don’t care what Lewis Hamilton wears anymore than I care if a boy wants to wear a dress. Even if he does look like a big tasteless doof. 

Leave the kids alone, ya doof.

Jimmy And Billy Kimmel Ask Congress To Fund Health Care For Kids After Second Surgery

When Jimmy Kimmel’s son Billy was born earlier this year, the comedian revealed that his newborn son was born with a heart disease that required open heart surgery just days after entering the world.  

At the time, the comedian slammed the Republican healthcare plan, which has since been shot down, pointing out that after the further surgeries his son will require, Billy would probably have exceeded his lifetime allowance and be uninsurable if it weren’t for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), dubbed Obamacare.  

And last week, Kimmel took a break from a show so that he could be with Billy as her underwent a second surgery. On Monday’s show, the two made a triumphant return to the show after the successful operation. 

Kimmel took the opportunity to ask Congress to renew CHIP, or the Children’s Health Insurance Plan. The program provides coverage to the kids of families who don’t qualify for Medicaid, and also don’t have health care from their employer. 

The bill has typically had bipartisan support, but Kimmel accused Congress members of using the bill as a bargaining chip to attempt to pass their tax plan. CHIP’s budget ran out in October, and so far, Congress hasn’t approved any further funding

Kimmel appealed to viewers to call their Congressional representatives and ask them to renew CHIP before they go any further with tax negotiations. 

You can watch the full segment below: 

People on social media were understandably touched by the emotional return. 

Well, that was emotional.

Wendy's Just Destroyed McDonald's After Their Huge Black Friday Tweet Fail

It’s always a little embarrassing when huge social media accounts don’t proofread their posts, like this copy and paste gaffe from Scott Disick…

For billion dollar corporations the stakes are much higher. Every notable event, or trending holiday, is a chance to promote your product. Naturally, McDonald’s was all set to tweet out a Black Friday post.

Whoever’s handling their social media was on top of scheduling the tweets, however, they had a bit of a snafu when it came to posting the actual tweet itself.

That’s right: McDonald’s posted this embarrassing mistake, but the burger chain seems to be taking the whole thing in stride. Look at this little gem they followed up with:

It wasn’t enough to stop the internet roast machine from getting on McDonald’s case, however.

People guessed what was going through the Mickey D’s social media team’s heads after the accidental post.

While others pointed out that the brand’s exposure as a result of the mix-up might ultimately benefit them.

Then the worst possible thing happened to McDonald’s. Social media savage, Wendy’s, of course, responded to the glaring mistake.

And they didn’t hold back.

Male Praying Mantis Continues Having Sex After Getting Decapitated–And We're Enthralled

The Praying mantis is a super freaky looking bug with some very interesting sexual predilections. For instance, cannibalism.

Some female Mantis species bite the head off the male Mantis after he deposits his sperm in her. After is the important part to remember while watching this video from Youtube channel Deep Impact. At about the three minute 30 second mark, you will witness a male mantis getting its head bite off—and still being DTF afterwards.

As you can see, he has no head. Yet he persists.

According to the narrtor, the nerves in the Mantis’ abdomen are controlling its body at this point. He doesn’t really need a head to get the job done, so to speak. He’s just following his heart!

Look, this is pretty disturbing, but don’t let it poison you against the Praying Mantis forever. They’re actually pretty cool bugs, with lots of gorgeous varieties:

Just don’t take one home from the bar.

Government Officials Tell Church To Stop Feeding The Homeless After Thanksgiving

The United Methodist Church in Malibu, California has offered a free meal to the homeless every Wednesday for the past three years. It’s an act of charity that would seem to go right along with Jesus’ whole ‘be kind to the poor’ message.

“It’s a safe place,” Michah Johnson, a homeless resident of Malibu, told CBS. “And everyone is welcome. And the food is really good. It’s home-cooked. And there’s TLC involved. They keep my spirits up. They keep me accountable. When you’re homeless, it’s very easy to slip off and become jaded.”

But city officials requested a meeting with the church’s leaders to directly ask them to stop feeding the homeless. “Very succinctly, they claimed we are increasing homelessness,” said Dawn Randall, who works with the church.

Commenters on the CBS report were outraged at the heartlessness of the city…

In the statement, the city denies that any decisions were made and says the issue will be addressed at a public meeting tonight. We look forward to getting an update on this matter.

Young Boy Tragically Dies After School Employee Fed Him A Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Thomas and Dina Silvera of New York City are mourning the death of their three-year-old son after a daycare employee reportedly fed him a grilled cheese sandwich. Elijah Silvera had a severe dairy allergy, which his parents say Seventh Avenue Center for Family Services in Manhattan knew about.

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is investigating the situation and has closed the school for, “failing to follow its written safety plan and failing to adequately supervise a child.”

In a statement to PEOPLE, the department said:

There is nothing more important than the safety of our children and we are deeply saddened by this tragedy. We will get to the bottom of what happened here.

The school reportedly called the boy’s parents rather than 911, delaying emergency care.
