Maria Sharapova failed a drug test (drug in question was legal for the last ten years before change)




- Said that for the last ten years she had been prescribed Mildronate/Meldonium, and for the last ten years she was taking it, it was legal.
- On January 1 it went on the banned list, and she had no idea. All tennis players are emailed before the end of the year with the list of medications that are moving to the banned list and she got it but didn't check.
- The drug is called Mildronate/Meldonium, she was perscribed on 2006 when she had several health issues, a magnesium defficiency, irregular ekg result, family history of diabetes.
- Apologizes and takes full responsibility for not making sure.
- Says she knows people thought she was gonna retire, and says that if she really was gonna announce that she'd do it in a hotel with nicer carpet lol.

Y'all are gonna get testy on this post so again, let me emphasize that for the last ten years she was taking it, it was legal, so she wasn't knowingly popping performance enhancing drugs.

Blind Item: Who Was Sharing 'Shrooms at the Oscars?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lainey posted a new blind today. Here goes:

A fun, quick little blind that went down after the Oscars…

It happened at one of the best annual after-after parties, where the top tier ends up after Vanity Fair. She decided to celebrate on shrooms. And she wasn’t selfish with her shrooms. She wanted to share her shrooms. She wanted to share her shrooms with the girl who claims to be all about sharing. So, hilariously, with shrooms in hand, she walks up to her potential new shroom partner and offered up her shrooms. I want you to picture this. The perfect crew standing around being tall and skinny and flawless, interrupted by a hippy with a trophy and a handful of caps. Now imagine their faces when they declined. She floated away, uninjured, already high from her night anyway.

Taylor Swift's Old Myspace Comments Surface

Last night Taylor Swift's old Myspace comments circa 2006-ish were dug up and displayed in their full glory on the internet. They're full of awkward selfies, f-bombs, and teenager-y inside jokes. The comments had circulated around Taylor Swift fan sites for years, but only now have reached the mainstream internet's gaze.

Farrah Abraham claims an Uber driver almost raped her... later says he just looked at her funny

In case you didn't know entrepreneur and part-time mother Farrah Abraham recently started her own podcast called Farrah & Friends where she talks, probably about herself, with "friends" like Shane Dawson. Sounds exhilarating, right? Anyway the podcast made news the other day when in a recent episode she stated, "An Uber driver almost raped me."

On the episode Farrah talked about her encounter with an Uber driver back in January that she claimed pursued her after she exited the car.

"The Persian dude ran after me," she recounted. "The cops were like, ‘You’re harassing her’... Something was wrong with him, like he was mentally disabled."

She even went as far as to claim that her "non-boyfriend" (her terminology, not mind) threw the driver against his windshield, nearly breaking it, to defend her because he was so aggressive. She said that the police were involved and a complaint was filed with them and Uber... only turns out that's not what happened. According to Uber, Farrah has been banned from their services for being a bad customer.

"Her rider account was banned because an Uber driver-partner reported that a friend traveling with her dumped their alcoholic drink on the front seat of the partner’s car," a spokesperson for the service stated.

Since the statement was released Farrah changed her tune and according to several outlets including Page Six she admitted that she wasn't touched or chased or that anything that she said happened. Instead she now says that he "[looked] at her lecherously" and she did not file a complaint to Uber or the police.

J.K Rowling Perpetuates Stereotypes, Upsets Native American Fans.




  • New story about Native American wizards in the HP world is laced with cultral appropriaton and stereotypes.

  • Describes N.A Wizards as gifted in "animal and plant based magic", great at wandless magic and animagi.

  • "We’re not magical creatures, we’re contemporary peoples who are still here, and still practice our spiritual traditions, traditions that are not akin to a completely imaginary wizarding world (as badass as that wizarding world is)," Keene wrote.

  • Don't like being compared to fantasy like creatures.

  • "The problem, Jo (can I call you Jo? I hope so), is that we as Indigenous peoples are constantly situated as fantasy creatures."

  • Worried about microagressions and cultural appropriation from non-Native American, American fans.

  • "We fight so hard every single day as Native peoples to be seen as contemporary, real, full, and complete human beings and to push away from the stereotypes that restrict us in stock categories of mystical-connected-to-nature-shamans or violent-savage-warriors."

While I do understand those who want to reserve judgment till more is released this week, I also agree with those frustrated with the continued narrative about N.A being mythical-like creatures.

ONTD Original: Iconic Teen Movie Kisses from the Late 90s and Early 00s

 photo ontdoriginal_zpsl2rgbqix.png


YES ONTD! It is that time again for my SUPER SPECIFIC ONTD Originals! It's been like, 2 weeks since I made one!

This time I'll explore the iconic Kiss scenes of the late 90s/early 00s teen movies, because let's be real, you're not a real 90s kid unless these kisses ruined all realistic expectations you could possibly have had for what your love life would be. Everyone who's a real 90s kid remembers going to Blockbuster on a Friday night with your bffs, going up and down every isle of movies, pretending like you weren't going to pick up the exact same movie you and your besties rented the week before.

After you rented one of these movies for the 20th time, you'd begin to act them out with your friends. There'd be arguments over who got to be Drew or Julia, but eventually you'd compromise and even become so bold as to video tape yourselves performing. But all the while you'd know, you'd never really know what it's like to have Heath Ledger serenade you from the bleachers of your historical landmark of a high school, or have Shane West apply temporary tattoos in his car.

But only real 90s kids know what that's like.

SeaWorld posts video blog that states they aren't optimistic about Tilikum's health

Over recent years SeaWorld has gained a lot of negative publicity over Tilikum, an orca in their Orlando park. Tilikum, who you may know from the documentary Blackfish, has been involved in the deaths of three different individuals including trainer Dawn Brancheau back in 2010. Despite being known as an aggressive animal SeaWorld has used him as their top breeder over the years.

Earlier today SeaWorld posted the above video to their YouTube channel talking about the health of the whale that they have had in their park for 23 years.

While in a typical SeaWorld fashion they try to say 34 year old whale is just getting older and would not still be with us if he was in the wild (male orcas are documented as living up to 70 in the wild) they do speak of the seriousness of Tilikum's current health problems. A SeaWorld vetinarian mentions that in addition to teeth problems he has had since he was in captivity he now also has a chronic bacterial infection in his lungs. The spokesperson stated he is no longer optimistic about the whale's future.

Kim K wrote an essay on empowerment.



“Hey, guys. I wanted to write a post elaborating on my tweets last night. In all seriousness, I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives. I don’t do drugs, I hardly drink, I’ve never committed a crime—and yet I’m a bad role model for being proud of my body?

[mmmm.....]It always seems to come back around to my sex tape. Yes, a sex tape that was made 13 years ago. 13 YEARS AGO. Literally that lonnng ago. And people still want to talk about it?!?! I lived through the embarrassment and fear, and decided to say who cares, do better, move on. I shouldn’t have to constantly be on the defense, listing off my accomplishments just to prove that I am more than something that happened 13 years ago. Let’s move on, already. I have.


I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me. And I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world. I am empowered by my husband, who is so accepting and supportive and who has given me a newfound confidence in myself. He allows me to be me and loves me unconditionally. I feel so lucky to have grown up surrounded by strong, driven, independent women.

The life lessons I’ve learned from my sisters, my mother and my grandmother, I will pass along to my daughter. I want her to be proud of who she is. I want her to be comfortable in her body. I don’t want her to grow up in a world where she is made to feel less-than for embracing everything it means to be a woman. It’s 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming—it’s like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me. I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy. #happyinternationalwomensday

JJ Abrams explains things involving Rey, Leia and Chewbacca.



If you haven't seen the movie yet, don't read this.

Chewie returns to the Resistance base with Rey and injured Finn and as he steps off the Falcon, Leia is standing there, waiting, but they walk by each other.

"That was probably one of the mistakes I made in that," J.J. Abrams, co-writer and director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens told Slashfilm. "My thinking at the time was that Chewbacca, despite the pain he was feeling, was focused on trying to save Finn and getting him taken care of. So I tried to have Chewbacca go off with him and focus on Rey, and then have Rey find Leia and Leia find Rey."

So, Chewbacca was originally supposed to be clearly focused on getting Finn medical attention, but "because he was right there, passed by Leia, it felt almost like a slight, which was definitely not the intention."


JJ also talks about the speculation surrounding Leia and Rey and if they really knew each other before their hug.


"The idea [was] that both of them being strong with the Force and never having met, would [still] know about each other — that Leia would have been told about her beyond what we saw onscreen and Rey of course would have learned about Leia. And that reunion would be a meeting and a reunion all in one, and a sort of commiseration of their mutual loss," Abrams said.

Henry Cavill Explains Superman's Excuse For Metropolis Destruction

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

People were pretty pissed that he pretty much destroyed Gotham Metropolis during his fight with Zod.

Henry's reply:

"I think that may have been part of the master plan all along. When it comes to the major story stuff I can’t really speak on that, because that was above my paygrade. What I can speak of is the idea of Superman, especially when the finger is pointed at collateral damage in the first movie. I mean, we’re talking about a greenhorn."

"Let’s say now, [if] Superman has the same threat again, that’s a different story. He would, of course, bring collateral damage to an absolute minimum, but in that, he’s just trying to survive because if he doesn’t, the planet’s gone. That’s the excuse I make for Superman. He’s fresh and he’s new, and it’s very easy to point out the faults in someone after they’ve done it, but put yourself in their shoes and see what happens."

I know ONTD hated MoS. I for one didn't hate it. I enjoyed it for what it was though I accept it wasn't the Superman movie we deserved. Here's hoping BvS slays.

Miley Cyrus is a hypocrite; wants women to empower each other.

Just days after Miley posted a tacky throwback photo of Jodie Sweetin on Instagram, and poked fun at her drug-addicted past, she posted a photo of Kim Kardashian's ass emoji and asked all women to empower one another instead of bashing each other.



Caption: "Current Mood #fullerhouse only you freaks take this as shaming! To me it looks like Stephanie is having a fucking gay ol time!"



Caption: "Dear women, you ALL are acting tacky AF! Why don't we overly (myself included) fortunate women come together and try to create and bring jobs to other women in desperate need of them so they can support not only THEMSELVES but their families! #happyinternationalwomensday can we all put the cuntiness aside for one fucking day and love / celebrate one another! PS no matter how hard you (or myself) work NEVER will I feel I am worthy of the comfort I live in.... Because so many others while I tuck myself in at night are laying their head on the pavement, dreaming of all the things we take for granted every day. Much love to all my women!!!!"

Meanwhile, Stephanie Judith Tanner responded to Hannah Montana's unnecessary post. She said that she is not focusing on negative stuff.

When the interviewer brought up Caitlyn's Republican ties and referenced a segment in her one of her show's episodes where she and other trans women got into a heated debate about this, she said, "The politics was tough on the bus. I sit on the Republican side. When we do get a candidate, I certainly will talk to them. And I admit that the Democrats when it comes as far as trans issues are better than the Republicans."
