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.

Look, everyone, it's another Kwestionable Kardashian Kalamity, aren't you so excited?! For this adventure, Khloe Kardashian stepped out in Dubai wearing this niqab, and she even posted a selfie in it (which she captioned "Habibi Love," natch). While women in Dubai usually wear this, women visiting the city don't, but Khloe, being the go-getter she is, decided to wear it anyway. And judging by the comments on her Instagram, she pissed a lot of people off:
this is so disrespectful to all muslim women!. Stop disrespecting every culture please... disgusting
The problem isn't "trying other cultures" it's when people embrace Muslim culture only when it's cool or fashionable. Like the whole "Arab money" male scarf BS a few years ago. Along with wearing these traditional clothing items in non-Muslim countries Is discrimination, oppression and paranoia even walking the streets. So yeah, it is offensive.
She's disregarding a cultural/religious symbol by appealing to her own commercial interest.
Many of you don't get how this is offensive, people wear this in real life every single day and get judged (even killed/abused) by everyone they pass. Now you see a white girl post a selfie with the same article of clothing and it's all "😍" "goals" "gorgeous" she doesn't know the meaning behind what she is wearing, trying to be offensive or not. It's wrong for her to post this and everyone praises her but then you see an everyday person wear it in public and suddenly they're a "terrorist"
It's not that we think that Khloe had terrible intentions here, and like that last commenter said, a lot of people weren't offended by this, but she just had to realize that posting a photo like this would cause at least a little bit of an uproar. And seriously, just for once, could she just not?

If the above historical screengrab from Jim Bob Duggar's 2002 candidacy for Senate isn't clear enough, we'll spell it out: Jim Bob, at least back in '02, thought that "incest" represents "heinous crimes and as such, should be treated as capital crimes." Capital crimes, as some of you might know, constitute the death penalty in some states. Let that one marinate for a minute.
Arkansas -- the Duggar's then-state of residence -- is a state that allows the death penalty for certain crimes.
What does this say for admitted child molester Josh Duggar? Well, it doesn't really change the fact that he admitted to molesting no less than 5 female children a little over a decade ago. But it does say a whole lot for Papa Jim Bob, who is said to have hidden his son's sins crimes for over a year before turning the matter over to the appropriate law enforcement officials (who, last time we checked, are not pastors and ministers) ... and the word we're thinking of sounds an awful lot like "schmypocrite."
