Aside from Jenelle Evans' trip to the hospital yesterday after feeling a lump in her throat, things with the Teen Mom star have been surprisingly quiet lately. I think it's safe to say the reason for that is her new boyfriend, Nathan Griffith. The underwear model with a steady job and paycheck has been dating Jenelle for a few weeks now, and the duo recently moved into a new place together.
A mom who is very happy about her daughter moving in with her spankin' new boyfriend of not even a month? This is the same mom who didn't hate Courtland Rogers, right? Yeah ... not exactly sure if her moral compass is reliable.
Let's be real, here: Mama June isn't an extraordinary chef. That's not to say that the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star doesn't know a thing or two about being in the kitchen. Heck, they're coming out with a Honey Boo Boo cookbook for crying out loud. But her tastes, well, they aren't exactly well-developed. Her ingredients? Simple and mostly canned. Hey, if that's what works for the Boo Boos (as I like to call 'em), then who am I to intrude?
Which is why instead of ridiculing Mama June for her latest unhealthy monstrosity of the meal, I commend her. The reality star recently allowed cameras into her kitchen and showed them how to make her masterpiece "multimeal." In it? Layers of hamburger meat, milk, mashed potatoes, shredded cheese, corn, and of course -- butter.
Sound caloric? Well yeah, that's because it probably is. But it also looks like a meal that most moms can respect for a MAJOR reason: ease.
Disney movies: there's nothing like 'em. Growing up, Cinderella, Belle, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, they were my role models. I mean, sure, Mom had a lot to offer and all, but sit me in front of a television to spend some quality time with Princess Jasmine and I was golden. Remember Abu?! That little monkey was the best!
And boy is there a lot to learn from these classic flicks. That Walt Disney had a spectacular way of weaving in things (and not just sexual ones, either) to his works. While 6-year-old me used to think the point of The Lion King was just to watch a bunch of cute lion cubs rolling around, I was actually learning things (which, of course, Mom knew). Big things. Life lessons, even.
Disney classics have loads and loads of touching, heartfelt lessons that kiddos everywhere are taking in every day. Do yourself a favor and take a looksee at these 15 inspiring Disney quotes that'll guide you through life. Then I give you permission to rent 'em all, STAT.
To say that Prince William and Kate Middleton's perfect relationship seems like the ultimate fairy tale is a total understatement. The couple, who met back in college, have been together for what feels like forever now and soon enough will be welcoming the cutest little royal bundle of joy. With all of this bliss at the palace, it's hard to think of the duo being without one another. The reality? It hasn't always been Will and Kate.
Both royals had their fair share of past romances before they committed to one another to have and to hold. I'll be honest with you guys -- a few of their exes are pretty good looking. Curious? We were too. Go on, take a look for yourself at 5 of Kate Middleton and Prince William's exes:
I'll be straight with you: I have almost never committed myself to watching a TV show every week on the same night ever ... until this season of The Voice. Maybe it's the fact that I could stare at Usher for hours and never get bored. Maybe it's because I like the banter that goes on between Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. But one thing's for sure: I've been hooked. Tonight, The Voice will crown their season 3 winner, and with three talented acts left in the game -- Danielle Bradbery, Michelle Chamuel, and The Swon Brothers -- it's anyone's game.
OK ... so I lied. Not about watching The Voice religiously, that's true. But it's not anyone's game. In fact, I think there is such a clear winner of this thing that I'll give up eating ice cream cones completely if I'm wrong. It's hot out there people, that's a big sacrifice.
