In a wild and wacky turn of events that you're just going to adore, a conservative politician has, at long last, made a statement about the Josh Duggar scandal that we can get behind. Rick Santorum, despite being a (former?) friend of the Duggars, and despite being supported by them in his last presidential campaign, has made a statement about Josh's crimes, and we couldn't be more proud.
Rick went on "Good Morning America" to discuss his recently announced decision to run for president again, and he was asked about his old buddy, Josh. Here's what he said:
"I'm sickened by it. I'm just sickened by it. I pray for those girls, in particular. To have gone through that is just hard to think about."
This is interesting because Rick and Josh actually were friends, or they were at least close enough to take this photo together and for Josh to post it to Twitter in a "happy birthday" tweet to Rick. It's also interesting because Rick seems to be the first prominent person who shares similar views with the Duggars to speak against them. Mike Huckabee, the Duggars' choice for president this time around, defended him, as did Michael Seewald, father-in-law to Jessa Duggar. And we can't forget that Jim Bob Duggar defended his son, the very same one that allegedly molested his daughters. Amidst all that craziness, Rick Santorum is the voice of reason. And that's crazy enough all by itself.

If you really sit down and think about it, or even if you just think about her dating history, you'll see that Karrueche Tran has one the most tragic stories in recent pop culture memory. After all, she dated Chris Brown, violent abuser and general douchebag, for a very long time, and ... no, that's it. That's sad enough all by itself. But she's proving herself to be a trooper, especially after Chris' continued attempts at creepiness, so it's kind of our duty to support her through these trying times.
And by "trying times," of course, we mean how weird it must be to go through such a public breakup with such a public dude:
"It's hard…I make it so we don't have to cross paths so it's not awkward but I do get on Instagram and there's people tagging us or I'll hear a song, you know, but I kind of just block it out."
Oh, and speaking of awkward, how 'bout that time that she found out from the internet that her longtime boyfriend had a kid?
"When it hit TMZ I was like, 'Oh' ... I called him and cussed him out. After the whole Rihanna thing, it's been a year or whatever, we've been trying to fix what was broken and that was just the icing on the cake. So I just had to completely part ways."
But does she hate Rihanna?!
"No, not at all. We just dated the same guy and that's kind of what it is. It's always a competition thing and they compare us but she is Rihanna. She's a pop star and she's beautiful she makes great music and I'm just me and I'm growing and working into myself. You can't really compare us we're two completely different girls."
We'd tell you to rise above, Karrueche, but it looks like you've got this under control. You know, not like it was hard to be better than Chris in the first place

Comedy Central's Larry Wilmore might not be to all folks' tastes ... but his commentary on Josh Duggar's molestation admission is spot-on and even -- dare we say it -- amusing at times.
Check out the segment below -- while it's humorous, and heartening to hear Wilmore telling it like it is, it's still pretty horrendous that this kind of blatant hypocrisy is being emitted from such a "pious" and "righteous" family. That shock's just never going to wear off, we're afraid.

"People been thinking I'm pregnant for 8 months now ... CLEARLY I'm not pregnant! ... Instagram is a made up world. I just show people what I want em to see. Doesn't everybody?"
--Kylie Jenner on pregnancy and, you know, life. If we weren't so convinced that Kylie's got some questionable thoughts because of those chemtrail comments she made the other day, we'd be 100% on board.
She makes a point about IG being a "made up world" -- most people who post on the site wouldn't post a tenth of their "personal" photos, whether it's somebody like Kylie or your neighbor from around the block. Nobody's going to post what they really look like when they first wake up in the morning, before they even brush their teeth, and nobody's going to share pictures of their darkest days ... it's human nature.
The bit about the pregnancy, though ... that's questionable at best. Yeah, obviously Kylie's not pregnant, because 8 months has passed and her midsection is still as taut as they come ... but what she's saying could be construed as nearly good as telling us that she's sexually active. And that's just creepy.

Today is a very special day, guys, because we have a brand-new photo of Giuliana Rancic -- in a bikini, if you can believe it.
Giuliana's been pretty vocal about the criticism she comes under fire over her body -- those who shame her because they think she's too skinny. Giuliana's clearly put on a few pounds, and if you don't think she looks great, then maybe your physique standards are a bit too lofty for the rest of us.
G looks so much better -- so much healthier -- and the majority of it is due to the confidence she exhibits in this photo, which was captioned "On top of the world."
If you think that's crazy, check out Giuliana before she got famous -- the difference between now and then is staggering.
Last, check out more of our favorite beach bodies in the gallery below, 'cause 'tis the season and all, right? (ONLY 7 MORE MONTHS 'TIL CHRISTMAS)

This photo is something so special, so precious and magical, and that is for one reason: it shows us that anything is possible. This is Paulina Porizkova, former supermodel (though some of you might recognize her from her work as a judge on a few cycles of "America's Next Top Model"), and she is 50 years old, makeup free, and drop dead gorgeous in that bikini. There's no age limit for beauty, of course, but damn.
Thanks for all the loveliness, Paulina. And thanks for reminding us that miracles are real.

This is a picture that's been going around Twitter, causing outrage to so many people, because, if you look real close, those are drawings of fat women. The one on the bottom says "Put It Down, Carb Face," which is dumb, but not nearly as bad as the top drawing, which reads "Just another day of fat, white, and hideous. You should probably just kill yourself." As terrible as this photo is, you might expect it to be the work of some stupid kid or just a sad, ignorant human of any age. And while that may very well be true, you probably wouldn't expect it to be showcased in the office of a prominent clothing company.
New York magazine did a tour of the offices of Lilly Pulitzer offices, and that image was in their slideshow. Don't worry though, because apparently this isn't something that the whole company endorses, according to an apology they issued when everyone got all upset about an image instructing fat women to kill themselves:
"These illustrations were the work of one individual and were posted in her personal work area. While we are an employer that does encourage people to decorate their own space, we are a female-dominated company and these images do not reflect our values. We apologize for any harm this may have caused."
While it's better (or whatever) that these belong to just one person, it's still one of the most offensive things we've seen today (which is saying a lot, thanks to the Duggars). Who would even think such a horrible thing, let alone take the time to make a drawing communicating it? If it wasn't bad enough by itself (it is), this is also coming from a company who just recently released an extremely well-received plus-size clothing collection. Perhaps it's OK for fat women to give them their money as long as they hate themselves enough.
Can we, as a society, finally evolve out of this hateful idiocy?

Here is a guy called A$AP Rocky, he is a rapper, and if you don't know anything about him, then all you need to know is this: he is disgusting. He just released a new album that contains a song called "Better Things," though it's a little hard to call it a song when it's really just a stream of misogynistic nonsense set to music. You can listen to the whole thing, if you feel like putting yourself through that:
Or you can just know that he called Katy Perry "the d-ke chick," a very clever reference to her "I Kissed A Girl" song, and he also says something about "f---ing each and every Katy Perry for the night b----," which doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but it can't be good. And then, just when you thought the awfulness was over, he did this bit about Rita Ora:
I swear that b---- Rita Ora got a big mouth
Next time I see her might curse the b---- out
Kicked the b---- out once cause she b----ed out
Spit my kids out, j-zzed up all in her mouth and made the b---- bounce
And what did Rita Ora ever do to him? That's a real question, by the way, because this is the very first time that these two people have ever been connected. And even if she did secretly do something terrible to him, does that really justify this? Hint: no, it really does not.
Here's another hint: if there's ever a point in your life when you get the idea to refer to a woman as a b---- four times in as many sentences and/or use the phrase "spit my kids out" when discussing oral sex, rethink it. And then reevaluate your entire life, because clearly something went wrong somewhere.
