Congrats, Ryan and Mackenzie!

Yesterday, these two Teen Mom OG lovebirds had their second wedding down in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Was it as classy as their first wedding, the one that took place in the parking lot outside the aquarium?

Was it a more festive occasion, were there more guests than just Ryan’s devastated parents?

Keep reading for the details!

1. True Love (?!?!)

We don’t know too much about the beginning of Ryan and Mackenzie’s love story, but we do know that they met and began dating sometime in 2016 — probably later in 2016, since Mackenzie filed for divorce from her first husband during the summer.

2. The Fast Track

Things apparently clicked for them though, because Ryan proposed that December, less than a month after her divorce was finalized.

3. Trouble in Paradise

At first, Teen Mom OG fans thought that Mackenzie was good for Ryan, that she seemed stable and mature and that she’d help him get himself together. But that was not the case, because as time went on, he just got messier.

4. Poor Maci

Sometime in early spring of this year, Maci Bookout, Ryan’s ex and the mother of his son, Bentley, learned that Ryan was struggling with a severe drug problem. We saw her struggle with the information on the show, but we never saw Ryan or Mackenzie address it — until the season finale.

5. Dream Wedding

In May, Ryan and Mackenzie made the quick decision to get married immediately, even though they’d been planning a big church wedding for November. Mackenzie claimed that they wanted to do this to help in their custody case for Bentley, but, you know, that doesn’t exactly make sense.

6. Scary, Scary

As Ryan drove Mackenzie and himself to the wedding location, it became clear just how serious his problem was — he was so high he started nodding off behind the …read more

Jenelle Evans: Does This Photo Prove She’s Being Abused?!

Jenelle's Selfie

For the past … well, for pretty much the entirety of their relationships, there have been rumors that Jenelle Evans is being abused by David Eason.

These rumors keep popping up for many, many reasons.

So many reasons.

One, David is no stranger to be accused of such atrocities. In court documents, his ex claimed that he pushed her down while she was pregnant, and that after she gave birth, he choked her.

Two, Jenelle has never been in a relationship that didn’t involve abuse in some way, not in the history of Teen Mom 2.

Three, we’ve seen David be extremely controlling on the show, to the point where some viewers feel comfortable referring to his behavior as emotional abuse.

Four, David has officially been accused of abusing Jenelle’s son, Kaiser, in court documents filed by Kaiser’s grandmother. Not only that, but her other son, Jace, has allegedly told his therapist that he’s scared of David.

Five … no, OK, look, we could list reasons and instances all day, we really could, but let’s just get to the point already.

Lots of people are concerned that David could possibly be abusing Jenelle, and some eagle-eyed Teen Mom fans think they now have photographic evidence of this.

Jenelle shared that photo above a couple of days ago to show off one of her lipsticks — she just debuted her new makeup line, JE Cosmetics.

Unfortunately, not too many people focused on the makeup.

Instead, they focused on the way Jenelle seems to have heavily filtered the photo — and those red marks on her chest.

If you look closely, you can see that there’s a lot of discoloration from her neck down to her collarbone, and there’s even what could be the hint of a bruise just below her collarbone.

Her nose seems to be a bit discolored, too.

Eminem SLAMMED for Saturday Night Live Performance!

Eminem slammed for saturday night live performance

It’s official: Eminem is back!

Well, it’s not like he was ever officially gone — though it’s been four years since he released his last album, he’s recorded a few songs here and there.

But right now he’s preparing for the release of his latest album, Revival. We don’t know exactly when the album will drop, but this month he shared the first single, “Walk on Water.”

To promote the album, he performed the single on this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live, and while Beyonce wasn’t there — she sings on the album track — his longtime collaborator Skylar Grey was.

And since he had a lady singer there with him, he took the opportunity to perform two of his old hits along with his new one — after “Walk on Water,” they did bits from “Stan” and “Love the Way You Lie.”

Considering all that, it should have been amazing, right?

Eminem fans should have lost their collective mind.

But unfortunately, that’s just not what happened.

People were ruthless in their reactions to his performance, and, as always, they took to Twitter to express their displeasure.

“I would rather listen to the woman on the piano sing a dozen songs than try to understand what Eminem is saying for one rap,” one person wrote.

Another said that “As a USED to be fan I checked in to see what was up….. #stfu #wtf was this [poop emoji] #pathetic attempt. Just retire into the trailer park you’re #nothing anymore.”

One person tweeted directly to Eminem, telling him that he is “a washed up hack” and “no one wants to see someone’s dad who can barely grow a beard mumble some ‘rhymes’ on SNL.”

In perhaps the most harsh criticism of them all, one person even wrote “I’m not sure Rihanna could have saved that performance as good as she is.”

The Punisher Is Rooted in American Trauma

The Punisher, Netflix and Marvel’s new 13-episode drama about a superhero whose superpower is killing people with guns, is debuting in a very different environment to the one the character was conceived in. When the vigilante Frank Castle first appeared in an issue of The Amazing Spider-Man in 1974, the American psyche was more preoccupied with serial killers and mob violence than with mass shooters. Punisher, a former Marine Corps sniper, turned the merciless tactics of organized criminals against them, displaying no qualms about executing gangsters. He employed what amounted to an arsenal of military-grade weapons. His accoutrements were guns, guns, and more guns.

In 2017, a dizzying number of disturbed gunmen have given the imagery and mythology of Punisher an even darker resonance. In October, a mass shooting in Las Vegas left 58 people dead, excluding the perpetrator. A month later, a 26-year-old former member of the U.S. Air Force killed 26 people in a church in Texas. It’s a discomfiting news landscape in which to absorb The Punisher, whose opening credits caress silhouetted weaponry as brazenly as James Bond title sequences undulate around women’s bodies.

But the show seems to have anticipated this line of criticism. Compared to the first appearance of Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle/Punisher in Season 2 of Daredevil—where he executed mob bosses and underlings with brutal, surgical revenge, and tried to provoke Daredevil into committing murder—The Punisher mostly resists fetishizing gun violence. Steve Lightfoot, its creator (and a veteran of the NBC show Hannibal), clearly wants to add shades of gray to his hero’s black-and-white worldview. Frank is a ruthless vigilante who imposes his own, bloody justice on the world, but the show twists itself into knots trying to both critique and justify his moral code. Hardcore fans of the comic-book Punisher, who include a large …read more
