Viewers of the videos were legitimately concerned because they believed they were witnessing a manic breakdown in real time. People who claimed to be mental health professionals said their clients often did this. before being admitted, others seemed to just make jokes about the situation and said they saw it coming, even calling her kanye 2.0, the ticking stopped after an apparent wellness check by a neighbor and we haven't heard anything else since she found out of what's been Continuing on Nickelodeon Hi, I'm your host Bridget Shields and let's talk about how Jeanette McCody exposed a major Nickelodeon scandal amid the explosive claims made in Jeanette McCurdy's memoir. the way young women were treated on nickelodeon fans are really starting to focus their attention on what happened during the filming of sam and cat specifically ally pointing the finger at someone jeannette calls the creator she doesn't name him specifically, but judging from the context within her memoir, it's pretty clear the former child star is referring to show creator dan schneider in a now-viral post that resurfaced online a teen ariana grande plays cat valentine and can be seen seen doing various bizarre activities that come with sexual overtones filmed in cat's room. in her mouth and over her face and she squeals and grunts as she tries to juice a potato ie at one point she even yells I'm drenched the clip is so weird it has to be seen to be believed but there's no doubt about it . its bad intentions, in fact fans have cited this as evidence that ariana fell victim to the creepiness of dan schneider's alleged predatory behavior so far, the clip has amassed over 3.3 million views on twitter since it was posted last week past and the full version has amassed over 11 million views on youtube since 2019. so it's pretty clear that people are starting to take notice of how creepy it is described as heartbreaking and hilarious.
Jeanette McCourty's bluntly icarly-esque memoir shocked fans upon its release, the reason being that it gives fans a glimpse of what really went on behind the scenes, something they've only been able to speculate about jeannette so far. exposes her traumatic experiences on nickelodeon and the disturbing truth about how she was mistreated by her mother, who pushed her to be a child star, noting that the persona she was known for throughout her youth and young adult life was a facade that she was forced upon her by her mother, who on top of everything else was extremely physically inappropriate around both her and her brother, even when they were teenagers.
Jeanette also talks about the dangers of the revelation of young fame. She tells her that she developed alexia as a child and talks about why she eventually gave up acting altogether. She also details numerous instances in which she felt exploited as a teen actress both on and off the set. She described the creator as mean-spirited, controlling, and scary. The former Nickelodeon star recalled a time when she was filming an episode of icarly that he insisted that she wear a bikini instead of a one-piece swimsuit that she preferred and if she has any doubts about the seriousness of his allegations, Jeanette also revealed that the network offered her $300,000 if she agreed to keep quiet about her experiences on set, the 31-year-old says the offer was made just after her tenure on the show Salmon Cat ended in 2014 and at that At the time she said she ultimately felt like hush money after all she had endured as a child.
Star Jeanette turned down Nickelodeon's offer and has since spoken about her experiences when speaking to the New York Times. She was overcome with emotion. All my childhood and adolescence were very exploited. It still gives me a reaction in my nervous system. Saying so, there were cases where people had the best intentions and maybe I didn't know what they were doing. doing and also cases where they knew exactly what they were doing, but judging by the ripple effect after the book's release, it's clear that she made the right decision in finally speaking out to a group of celebrities and Depp fans who didn't like it.
Depp's victory post over the weekend and there may be a few reasons why after winning his libel case against amber heard by a long shot johnny took to instagram to celebrate and write a victory post for the last month and a bit This victoria post had amassed over 19 million likes and among those likes were many celebrities including robert downey jr jennifer aniston al fanning bella hadid orlando bloom sophie turner joey king melissa joan hard vanessa hutchins liv tyler and jennifer coolidge all the who have now liked the post lucy hale and emma roberts are among the few celebrities who still They didn't like the post, but we won't be surprised if they do.
The discovery of the differences came after the opening of pre-trial documents that the judge ruled were not relevant to the case and therefore were not filed with the court in case you don't know what I mean. , johnny depp faced off against amber heard in a lengthy trial to prove that the washington op-ed that amber wrote about being a public figure for victims of domestic violence and clearly referring to her relationship with johnny in 2016 was defamatory and the reason he lost possible job offers and franchise agreements johnny won this case by a long shot and amber owed him 10 million more in damages and even though johnny had to pay amber 2 million because the court found that johnny's lawyer slandered amber in an interview not because of anything johnny himself actually did amber claimed that there were documents that could have helped his case that were sealed but documents that were hidden until recently have now been revealed to the public included potentially damaging anecdotes about the death and the hearing and did not help any of their cases even though they were amber on several occasions in court alluding to loads of evidence that would prove her case, no one has focused on the fact that she potentially lied again about the mountain of hidden evidence and everyone has focused on what johnny was trying to push to help her case. this is because people are being pressured by the media to focus on johnny possibly the documents people are concerned about now are nude photos of amber and images from amber heard sister's reality show whitney which consists of a scene where whitney is repeatedly asked if he wants to physically fight her. her sister and then she is shown to have marks on her chest and arm from an altercation apparently the hidden documents included mo this is about whitney and amber's past relationships and then there is information about amber's past as an exotic dancer before she met amber depp and there was some suggestion that she would be an escort the popcorn planet youtube channel discussed the evidence around this in detail last week and talked about her being a supposed madame to many people in hollywood if this were true and many people were involved in a potential escort business that Amber was running, then perhaps that would make sense as to why so many celebrities are now backing off on their engagement. johnny's post after the harvey weinstein debacle no one wants to get caught up in another possible dark hollywood scandal why celebrities don't like his post here are some possible reasons fear of choosing the wrong side we all saw the trial the mountain of evidence johnny had and the amount of lies amber was caught up in but yeah hollywood is usually full of celebs who are afraid of choosing the wrong side no one wants to go wrong and its just that i wouldnt want either reason why we no longer trust the law yes many new pre trial documents have been released but they were kept out of trial for a reason if there were images that proved to be amber. being badly hurt by johnny which would line up with some of their
stories then they would have been included in the trial not to mention they wouldn't be circulating on the internet now but perhaps their inherent distrust of the law could stem from the fact that we now live in a world in which it is difficult to know who to trust, since there has been a lot of misinformation and deception.
Do we blame them if they are not sure they can trust that this trial was not rigged and skewed in favor of Johnny, who as he has been marketed as the powerful man even though a powerful person would not have the mainstream media your side, but don't get me started, reason number three, you may not want to be associated with this battle anymore. that's possible, as this case seems to be endless, but considering that a large number of celebrities don't like large-scale posting, and knowing how different everyone is in thought, it seems unlikely that suddenly everyone have decided to leave theship for full reason number four, maybe your management team told them not to like the post;
Everyone knows that Hollywood is in cahoots with the mainstream media, so it's likely that the major agencies have associations with the Washington press, whom most people question because of their decision to injure their back. First of all, it wouldn't be unheard of to imagine a bunch of agencies telling their clients to break up with johnny because higher powers told them to. an article about a fake victim especially with a large majority of the public associating the idea of fake
news when perceiving the mainstream media was a risky move but also why would they push an article without doing their due diligence and making sure that the audience was absolutely someone who was a victim before accepting her article? to push a narrative, whether her
stories are true or not, that would maybe give them a reason to back her now if Amber isn't working as an actress, which we know she You're not paying your bills right now.
How can you attract so many? asks reason number five why all these celebrities differed from johnny's post because of a possible hollywood scandal that could be about to become public knowledge and no one wants to be associated with it, maybe because they are a part of it or maybe because he has a greater power. like a media outlet or the executive producers could be a part of this and they control the money in hollywood and so if an actor can ever get back to work, geez, that's a lot like the kind of attraction that harvey weinstein had over a lot of people in hollywood Surely that couldn't be happening yet in october 2016.
People were shocked when they learned that reality star kim kardashian had been mugged while in a hotel room in paris with the high profile she had. The family is and how well known they are for being rich and bragging about it sadly makes them a great target for robbery. The thieves stole millions of dollars worth of valuable jewelry. No one was arrested in connection with the crime until five years later, in 2021. since the event happened, the discussion has died down and no new information has emerged until now, one of the robbers involved in the robbery was interviewed and spoke about his involvement in the situation and her feelings about it so let's recap what happened six years ago and see what the criminal had to say about it like i said before the incident happened in oct 2016 she was in paris doing shows and had returned to her hotel actively posting live videos of her on the runway for dinner and eventually spending time in her room while she was there, masked robbers threatened the hotel concierge and managed to get him access to her room where they then threatened her with tying him up in the bathtub and locking her inside while they took away all the valuables she had apparently been rightfully terrified into begging them not to. they hurt her because she has kids at home they took a box of jewelry worth 10 million dollars escaping at night on their bikes luckily no one was hurt in this incident except the people who paid for kanye concert tickets that night , as he had to stop the show abruptly due to a family emergency which turned out to be theft. the mayor of paris himself even apologized to kim and her family. saying that she will always be welcome in Paris after the incident occurred, the robbers were revealed to be a group of men in their late 60s and early 70s who had apparently been planning the heist for two full years.
They had reportedly used the Kardashian family's social network. the media to organize it and learn their locations, actions and timelines, authorities believe that Kim's Snapchat posts revealed where the fact that she had the jewelry with her was and the fact that she was alone and vulnerable 12 men in All were involved and one of them was a 67 year old man who spent just 22 months in prison before being released early for health reasons Vice
News took to track him down the street with him for an interview discussing the event; most shockingly, he seems to have no remorse for what happened and would probably do it again if he had the chance.
This is what he had to say about the moment. before the heist i went on the internet and i saw her jewelry i saw her ring i saw she was showing it everywhere we knew this information through social media we knew she was coming for fashion week so we went there to do some reconnaissance like this which we were sure she admitted she didn't even know who kim kardashian was before joining the men for the robbery and then watching episodes of keeping up with the kardashians and determining that kim had so much money she really wouldn't care if she messed up when asked if he felt guilty about it he said since she was throwing money away i was there to collect it and she was guilty no i don't care i don't care he went on to say he believes kim kardashian and other celebrities they just ask to be robbed because of how much they show off their wealth on tv and social media saying its provocative says this should serve as a wake up call for them to stop being so flashy that he certainly worked for Kim since after the event he said that she stopped having expensive jewelry and other items in her house and stopped posting live on social media.
He apparently said that she has become less materialistic since this happened and is more grateful to have her. family, but I really don't think the thief should be commended for believing that he caused this change in his life. I honestly don't know why they would bring this guy in for an interview to talk about it because it all feels a bit scum t Like yourself, many are under the impression that there are problems in Megan and mgk's relationship and they base their speculations on a few different things that might mean absolutely nothing, so of course we'll present you with those reasons and then you can decide for yourself if you think it's true or if you even care about these two celebs who met in a movie set in 2020 and Megan Fox told Lala Kent on her podcast date that I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame.
What is the twin flame? You can ask yes. i asked the same thing well fox went on to say date instead of a soulmate a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended to a high enough level that it can split into two different bodies at the same time so in Actually we are two halves of the same soul I lost weight K and I told him that almost immediately because I felt it immediately. End of quote, so yeah, I guess she once told him that and then asked him if he was breastfed as a child because the quote has a lot to do with his psychology and his temperament.
The two decided they were in love so they blood-kissed in a bath and got engaged earlier this year under a banyan tree, but fans seem to be under the impression the two are having trouble in their strange paradise. and a
celebrity gossip. Gawker's article titled
Celebrity Breakup Watch Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly explains why exactly this is believed to be true now, the story doesn't say the two broke up, but rather gives us reasons why things aren't working out and when i say it's exaggerated it's exaggerated the article comments on megan's instagram activities that mgk has been missing from for a few weeks it specifically talks about a single post on megan's instagram which doesn't say anything about they broke up but it's just her and Kourtney Kardashian posing scantily clad, which the article says, if we can call it that, is an indication that Megan is looking to date again, which she absolutely isn't and it's almost comical to see how far people will go. and reading this stuff mgk is currently on the road for her tour which could and probably explains her absence from megan's instagram if we need an explanation at all the site also notes that we haven't seen or heard of any wedding plans being announced and that she hasn't talked about him publicly since the premiere of the mgk documentary vida en rosa how dare she must mean they broke up right no it doesn't mean that at all just because the actress doesn't talk about him to the press all the time but well, if they break up now, we can pretend we could see it coming because she wasn't talking about him publicly or posting about him on Instagram, unsurprisingly, neither of them have officially commented on the report. and neither of them have hinted that they will end their relationship despite all the rumors for months now, well Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson broke up it wasn't the longest relationship and them dating seems like an odd couple to me but it managed to last at least nine months , but now the question some people have is why the split am adam andrews information overload and here are a bunch of reasons from various sources as to why the short lived couple broke up so why did they break up kim kardashians and pete davidson Well, it seems it all comes down to some completely civilized programming age differences and you'll never guess that these different personalities were some of the reasons the two called it quits after their nine-month relationship, a source said, citing Kim and Pete.
They have decided to just be friends, they love and respect each other very much, but they found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it very difficult to maintain a relationship, but like I said, the couple's age difference was probably a big part of that as well, Kim and Pete are around 13 years apart so it's not the most surprising thing and a source confirms this by saying she dates Pete is 28 and Kim is 41, they're just in very different places at the time Pete is totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to new york or wherever he is anytime but kim has four kids and its not that easy she needs conc Getting into the kids, this same source also revealed that Kim several businesses, which there are many, have made maintaining a relationship difficult for her, saying that she is totally exhausted by this relationship and other things that happen in her life, but that's not It means they don't get along or they don't have chemistry, they absolutely had a lot of it. chemistry and anyone who has seen them together would agree another source this time for entertainment tonight said quote they had great chemistry and still do but she wants to be single and date kim still adores pete and always she will be friends with him, she still thinks he is the nicest and sweetest guy in the world and that there is no drama or anything weird between them now this source goes on to say quote that she felt pete was the opposite end of kanye and it was good for her so initially thought it would be a fun fling but then it got more serious when they were spending so much time together kim didn't feel like she was ready to settle down with him yet so yeah it seems like it was just the natural progression of a rebound these things don't happen there's animosity there's no real drama and that's good for once i'm sure kim feels the same after the headache i can imagine kanye is talking about kane another source seemed to hint ar the fact that kanye did have a bit of help in the whole thing seemingly hinted at and confirmed by a page six source when talking about how kim wants to focus on the kids saying quotes when kim is with someone else kan you can cause problems with the children he tries to divide and conquer he can't help it kim is a truly dedicated mother and her children will always come first she wants and needs harmony in the home and in her life actress and wife of prince harry meghan markle seems to be one of those people in which opinions about her are split down the middle: either love her or hate her, fans of the royal family are usually not on her side as they feel she has caused a lot of drama and upset. within the royal unit, especially when she and Harry made the decision to leave their royal duties behind, she is seen by others as an independent female champion who held her own in the face of adversity and ignorance, whatever her opinion, although it seems that to some no one likes her new podcast which is just right like many people in this day and age meghan markle has decided to launch a podcast titled archetypes on spotify with the podcast market so saturated it's hard to create something that will really stand out and be interesting to listeners and i think megan was relying on her fame to get people to hear it but she may have been relying on that too much as critics have called her podcast just another way she talks about herself so let's take a look at the podcast and what other reviewers and listeners have said like i said the podcast is titled archetypes and the main focus seems to be some sort of feminist effort.
Markle describes the podcast as where we dissect, explore, and subvert labels. who are trying to stop the women, so it seems that her guests will probably all beinfluential women and the first person he had on his show was tennis superstar Serena Williams. Next week's episode will apparently feature Mariah Carey because I guess she's already started to thaw for the holiday season in this episode Megan and Serena seemed to talk about their shared experiences, mostly specific to being women, including hugging their ambitions from a young age being new mothers with public careers and serena talking about how her career has changed from tennis to other mediums like writing for vogue megan also shared more details about a situation in 2019 where she was on a trip in south africa speaking publicly when she got the
news that her son archie's room had caught fire and said she was in tears and shocked by the incident as any mother would be while other people who remember say archie wasn't even in the room and that it was just a heater that started smoking and unplugged it even though serena williams she was a featured guest many listeners and critics complained that meghan spent too much time talking about herself saying serena barely had a chance so let's take a look at what some of the professional reviews had to say. about the podcast and then we'll see what the general public has been saying on social media james marriott of the time gave it a one star review and called it almost entirely pre posterous said the effect of all the jingling music and the bland conversation makes you feel like you've been locked in a spa relaxation room with an unusually selfish yoga instructor, celia walden of the telegraph, who called it just another way she can talk about herself by saying the podcast is a interview with this inspirational sports figure in name only if the rest of the season is anything like the premiere what are we really going to hear Week after week Megan interviews herself and eventually the viewer also said it was all about for her to say that the first guest is Serena Williams, but that tennis fans who tune in might be a bit disappointed because, in fact, the show ma is about Megan as it is 11 minutes long.
For Serena to barely understand a word, it's hard to believe that it took 28 people, including 8 executive producers, to make the episode, plus Megan herself, who is also listed as an executive producer in the credits. The messages from casual listeners on Twitter seem to be pretty. split with some praising it and some calling it out tweets said things like meghan markle's new spotify podcast is a good first episode with serena williams edited beautifully megan has a great voice and great input from vibe experts while others were saying things like that Meghan Markle's podcast was another one of her boring rant fests where she tries to play the victim and sell lies about the royal family again. inheritance and status that she knows about ambition nothing you
