Jenny Erikson is a conservative chick with a strong opinion and a smart mouth. Sometimes sassy, sometimes sincere, always honest. She believes that ingenuity, elbow grease, and sheer determination can accomplish anything -- even motherhood.
Jenny also blogs at JennyErikson.com, and she lives in Southern California with her two daughters.
Teem Mom stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra made the difficult decision to give their biological daughter up for adoption when they accidentally got pregnant in high school. The childhood sweethearts vowed that they would have more children someday to keep, but they knew they couldn't properly care for Carly and wanted her to grow up in a stable home with adult parents.
I'm sure many viewers (um, like myself) doubted that the two would stay together past high school, let alone conceive any more children. But oh boy, have they proved otherwise. They are basically the sweetest couple out of reality TV. And now ... they're ready to have a baby to raise as their own.
It seems like there's been speculation for months on whether or not Kanye West's bestie Jay-Z would attend what's sure to be his over-the-top wedding with Kim Kardashian. It seems that Mrs. Sean Carter has been less than thrilled with the publicity of it all, and thinks it's tacky.
But then we heard Queen Bey was not only consenting to attend, but to represent as a bridesmaid! Wait, what? Anyway, it seems those were only rumors, since the latest news about the Kardashian wedding is that Beyonce has put her foot down and they are not attending. Again.
Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell just have it. That magical sparkly thing called love -- real, honest, bone-deep love. Maybe it's because the Teen Mom stars have been together for an entire decade (they were basically fetuses when they got together), or maybe it was the experience of placing their biological daughter Carly for adoption, but whatever the reason, these two seem to have cemented their relationship status as together.
And every once in a while, one of them posts something on social media that is so disgustingly sweet we'd have to hate them if we didn't love them so much and want to put them in our pocket and take them home. Like this kissing selfie Ty posted on Instagram recently.
We learned that Bachelor alum Melissa Rycroftwelcomed her second child with hubby Tye Strickland on Easter Sunday, but now we're finally getting a peek at the little guy!
The reality star (in addition to her Bachelor fame, she also appeared on Dancing With the Stars before becoming pregnant with her son) Instagrammed the sweetest picture of her 2-and-a-half-year-old daughter Ava holding her newborn son Beckett Thomas -- with dad's help of course, because really, this photo can't get any cuter.
Like the good millennial that I am, I naturally love the movie Mean Girls. It's Lindsay Lohan at her best, it launched Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried, and the screenplay was written by Tina Fey. In other words, it's basically art on film.
And of course, one of our favorite characters was Too-Gay-To-Function Damian, a role that actor Daniel Franzese hasn't always appreciated playing. 10 years after playing one of the greatest gay teen roles ever, the actor has finally come out of the closest himself in an absolutely perfect way -- by penning an open letter to his alter-ego Damian.
