Val Kilmer Emerges Looking Gaunt After Life-Saving Surgery

In October of 2015, beloved actor Val Kilmer was hospitalized and rumored to be near death as a result of a tumor in his throat for which he had reportedly refused traditional treatments.

Sources say Kilmer, a devout Christian Scientist, was working with an expert who promised to help him “talk and meditate” his way back to health.

After several months of concealing his neck with a handkerchief (as in the photograph above) Kilmer eventually disappeared from the public eye altogether.

He was fitted with a tracheostomy tube in December, and several insiders say it cost the 56-year-old the ability to speak.

Reps for Kilmer have offered very little with regard to news of his health, but they have dispelled the rumor that he can no longer talk.

Sources claim that in January, Kilmer underwent a life-saving surgery, and while his reps neither confirmed not denied that an emergency procedure took place, the actor was not seen in public for several months afterward.

In fact, it was just yesterday that Kilmer was photographed by paparazzi for the first time in nearly six months.

The surgery reportedly removed a several tumors that had spread to Kilmer’s lymph nodes. 

The latest photos of Val show him walking under his own power without any visible scarring. 

However, many fans have noted that Kilmer seems to have lost a frightening amount of weight.

Kilmer, who was sadly chided for his weight gain in the months before news of his health troubles went public, now appears astonishingly gaunt.

It’s unclear if the actor’s weight loss is related to his cancer treatment, but the newest photos of Val have done little to allay fans’ concerns about his health.

Whatever the case, it seems that Val has received or is currently receiving treatment for his health.

We wish him all the best and hope to see the man who wowed with countless memorable performances return to the big screen in the very near future. 

Christian Rock Star Comes Out as Gay: Read His Moving Letter!

Christian Rock Star Comes Out as Gay: Read His Moving Letter!

Trey Pearson is a Christian. And he’s a rock star. And he’s gay.

Growing up in a religious family, he tried to deny his sexuality his entire life, but Pearson has finally come to terms with who he is.

The front man for rock band Everyday Sunday has just come out, and is opening up about his journey in a heartfelt letter.

“I finally decided to come out because I couldn’t keep trying to be something that I wasn’t,” he told Religion News Service.

He shared that he grew up believing that being gay was a choice, so he followed a straight lifestyle thinking it was the right thing to do.

“I never wanted to be gay,” he told (614) Magazine. “I was scared of what God would think and what all of these people I loved would think about me; so it was never an option for me.”

He wound up marrying a woman and having two children with her, but recently realized he “was never going to be who my wife needed me to be.”

He recently wrote a letter to fans, explaining his decision to come out:

“These last several months have been the hardest – but have also ended up being the most freeing months — of my life.

“To make an extremely long story short, I have come to be able to admit to myself, and to my family, that I am gay.

“I grew up in a very conservative Christian home where I was taught that my sexual orientation was a matter of choice, and had put all my faith into that. I had never before admitted to myself that I was gay, let alone to anyone else. I never wanted to be gay.

I was scared of what God would think and what all of these people I loved would think about me; so it never was an option for me. I have been suppressing these attractions and feelings since adolescence. I’ve tried my whole life to be straight. I married a girl, and I even have two beautiful little kids. My daughter, Liv, is six and my son, Beckham, is two.

“I had always romanticized the idea of falling in love with a woman; and having a family had always been my dream. In many ways, that dream has come true. But I have also come to realize a lot of time has passed in my life pushing away, blocking out and not dealing with real feelings going on inside of me.

I have tried not to be gay for more than 20 years of my life. I found so much comfort as a teen in 1 Samuel 18-20 and the intimacy of Jonathan and David. I thought and hoped that such male intimacy could fulfill that void I felt in my desire for male companionship. I always thought if I could find these intimate friendships, then that would be enough.”

He goes on to explain that he thought once he was married, everything would fall into place. He committed himself to his wife and family, but he eventually realized he was living a lie, and it wasn’t fair to his loved ones.

“I am never going to be able to change how I am, and no matter how healthy our relationship becomes, it’s never going to change what I know deep down: that I am gay.”

He is grateful for his wife for being supportive throughout the process, and hopes that fans will still love and accept him.

“I hope people will hear my heart, and that I will still be loved. I’m still the same guy, with the same heart, who wants to love God and love people with everything I have.”

Lindsay Lohan Goes Pantsless, Talks Marriage on Instagram

Lindsay Lohan Goes Pantsless, Talks Marriage on Instagram

Last time we checked in on her, Lindsay Lohan actually looked normal and happy in her latest Instagram selfies.

At first we were a bit freaked out. Then we remembered that appearances can be deceiving, and deep down, she’s still the same old Linds:

Case in point: here she is pantsless, smoking a cig, and sporting a far-off look in her eye that leads us to believe she may have recently smoked something else.

Obviously, the sight of Lindsay Lohan naked is nothing new, and we’ve seen her much more exposed than this in the past, but her recent social media activity is interesting for reasons that go beyond freckled flesh.

As you may already know, Lindsay is dating a Russian real estate agent named Egor Tarabasov.

It was recently revealed that Egor is not as rich as Lindsay originally thought, but she seems fully smitten nonetheless.

Currently, she’s living with Egor in London and posting pics like this one:

She captioned the selfie, “Rushing around from work to lunch to work and fittings but still smiling!!” which kinda leads us to believe Lindsay doesn’t know what smiling looks like.

Anyway, in case it wasn’t already clear that she’s all about this relationship, she’s also started posting memes about marriage.

The latest features unattributed quote reading:

“She’s a badass with a good heart … She’s the type you go to war beside. The type of woman you marry.”

Pretty subtle stuff there, Linds.

We know English isn’t Egor’s first language, but we’re guessing he’ll get what you’re trying to say.

Kardashian and Jenner Reality Shows: RANKED!

It’s official, hilarious and depressing:

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna will star in their very own E! reality show.

This really comes as little surprise, considering just how many programs the network has produced that feature members of this famous family.

Which series has been the biggest waste of time? Which receives our begrudging respect?

It’s time to countdown all the Kardashian and Jenner reality shows, from the worst of the worst to the best of the worst…

9. Dash Dolls

This show answered the question that nobody ever asked: What is the deal with the attractive young women who get ordered around by the Kardashians at the stores they pretend to manage? It’s unlikely to receive a second season.

8. Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons

Kourtney and khloe take the hamptons
Because the Kardashians themselves aren’t obnoxious enough, they had to throw The Hamptons into this program. Excuse us while we vomit…

7. Rob & Chyna

Rob and chyna
This one has not even aired yet, we know. But Rob doesn’t exactly possess a winning personality. And Blac Chyna is just a wannabe Kim Kardashian. And how is it not titled Blac & White?!? Such a missed opportunity.

6. Kourtney and Kim Take New York

Remember when Kourtney celebrated the fact that they were riding the subway? Watching these two in The City That Never Sleeps was akin to never waking up from a nightmare.

5. Kourtney and Kim Take Miami

Kourtney and kim take miami
This one gets ranked the highest among these spinoffs because it took place in Miami. This meant that Kourtney and Kim often wore a bikini.

4. Khloé & Lamar

Khloe and lamar
We’ll never use the word “real” in relation to these reality shows. But the inside look at this then-married couple made it pretty clear just how in love Khloe and Lamar actually were with each other. The episodes were obviously scripted, but the chemistry was… real.

Leah Messer: SLAMMED By Fans For Criticizing Miranda Simms!

Leah Messer: SLAMMED By Fans For Criticizing Miranda Simms!

If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, then you’re probably aware that Leah Messer hasn’t been portrayed in the most flattering light this season.

On recent episodes, Leah has butted heads with Miranda Simms over what she alleged is Simms’ negligence toward her daughter Ali, who suffers from muscular dystrophy.

Specifically the ladies clashed over the accusation that Miranda refused to help Ali carry her backpack while she was walking into school.

The conflict stemmed from a recording in which Ali was heard to complain, “Miranda always gets mad at me cause my backpack is too heavy.”

Leah became emotional after viewing the footage, saying, “I can’t watch it without getting angry or wanting to cry … I don’t know what to do.”

Miranda was understandably not happy with being portrayed as the bad guy, as she claims she was unable to assist Ali due to the fact that she was carrying her infant son, Remington.

It doesn’t take much to turn fans against Leah, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that social media seems to be overwhelmingly Team Miranda.

On last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, Miranda made a strong case for why Leah should trust her a bit more with regard to her children.

Leah reluctantly agreed, and she even agreed to attend co-parenting sessions with Miranda and Corey.

Even so, many fans on Twitter believe Leah as in the wrong and should be begging Miranda for an apology:

“U never had ur hands full when you had ur 3rd child & couldn’t help a child with a book bag?” tweeted one viewer.

“Maybe you should invest in a rolling backpack for your daughter @TM2LeahDawn that way she doesn’t have to carry a heavy bag,” wrote another.

Leah didn’t respond directly, but she did post a meme reading:

“Should you ever find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, smallness, or insecurities, remember things could be worse … you could be them.”

Sigh. She tries, but things will never be easy for Leah on Twitter … or in life, for that matter.

Lauren Conrad Confirms There Will Be More of The Hills

Lauren Conrad Confirms There Will Be More of The Hills

Why does 2006 feel like two years ago?

As I wonder where the last decade went, the rest of you can mark your calendars, because MTV is premiering a 10th anniversary special of The Hills, which starred Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port.

“Today is the 10th anniversary of The Hills! I am excited to announce that @MTV will premiere an anniversary special with me on Tuesday 8/2,” Conrad tweeted.

The lifestyle expert also wrote a post on her site about the special, titled The Hills: That Was Then, This is Now, which featured an image of her fixing the hem of a dress as a cameraman lingered behind.

“Ten years ago, The Hills aired on MTV for the first time. (That’s right people, it’s been ten whole years! Can we all feel old together, please?),” she wrote, adding that she had done something she hadn’t done “in over a decade.”

She sat down and watched the pilot.

“It was odd watching all of us just starting out, with no idea what the future held (although, no one really could have prepared us for what the next few years would bring).

“Looking back, I am grateful for the incredible opportunity we were given to take part in this show.

“While it was hard at times to share my personal life (poor makeup choices and all) with the world; the experience taught me so much and forever altered my life and my outlook for the better. I am so proud of the show.”

Conrad thanked production for a show that documented (and, she admitted, created) the ups and down in her life.

“As hard as it is to look back (other than watching the pilot, I haven’t watched any episodes since they first aired), it brings me a lot of joy to see that now, despite all the challenges we faced together back then, each of us seems to have found what we were looking for. “

Conrad will dedicate the MTV special to the fans, whom she thanked for being there from the beginning

We will be having an honest conversation about what it was really like living with cameras for so many years (spoiler alert: it was super weird), sharing some behind-the-scene secrets, and showing some of my life today,” she wrote.

“And since this is all for you, please let me know below if there are any questions you have or if there is anything you would like to see addressed. XO Lauren “

Not one to let the entire spotlight shine on her ex-bestie, Montag tweeted a shout-out as well:

“Happy 10 year anniversary to #TheHills ! Thank you God & @MTV for changing my life. The rest is still unwritten.”

1. Dance Moms

Dance moms
We’ll just let Maddie Ziegler, arguably the show’s top performer, lay it right out for you, courtesy of an interview with USA Today: “The producers set it up to make us all yell at each other. You know how I said that moms do fight? The moms have a fake fight sometimes. Afterward they just start talking and laugh about it.” Host Abby Lee Miller really does suck, however. that’s not fake.

2. House Hunters

House hunters
Bobi Jensen blogged in 2012, on a site titled “Hooked on Houses,” that her experience on House Hunter was totally contrived. Turns out, the couple had selected its home prior to appearing on the show and producers even changed Jensen’s story over why she was moving.

3. Breaking Amish

Breaking amish
Can we change the title of this TLC series to “Having Already Broken Amish?” After the very first episode aired, it came out that most participants had already left their Amish family for the bright lights of the big city.

4. Storage Wars

Storage wars
Dave Hester, a prominent presence on A&E’s Storage Wars, left production and sued the network over the phony aspects of the show. He said producers loaded units up with items to give each episode an artificial angle and that they even funneled money to teams to keep each episode’s bidding competitive.

5. Ghost Adventures

Ghost adventures
Ghost Adventures star Aaron Goodwin was fired in 2014 after he stopped by the podcast Are We Alone and explained how the network staged reactions, sound effects and other aspects of the program. He said it was “sickening” that he was part of such a “fraud.”

6. The Hills
