On Monday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Kim Kardashian West revealed that her fourth child with husband Kanye West is a boy and also revealed that the baby is due “sometime soon” via surrogate. The baby will be born from the same surrogate as their third child, Chicago.
A surprised Kourtney says she knew it was a boy but was surprised how her sister Kim just blurted it out during their interview. She replies, “it’s out there.”
“I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and told some people. I can’t remember who I told because I never get drunk,” Kardashian West added.
The Kardashian sisters also talk about: Kim’s single Jam (Turn It Up) and beef with Taylor Swift, plastic surgery, if they still speak to Caitlyn Jenner, Kanye’s Twitterstorms, they play “Plead the Fifth” and more.
The Simpsons are no strangers in going meta and breaking the fourth wall, and on Sunday’s episode titled “The Girl On The Bus,” they did just that when Homer texts his daughter Lisa saying that he can’t find his phone. Lisa then replies to him pointing out that he’s texting from it. An embarrassed Homer then replies with that gif of himself backing into the bushes.
This gif and meme originates from the fifth season episode “Homer Loves Flanders,” where Homer becomes friends with his neighbor Ned Flanders after they spend time together. That episode aired all the way back in 1994.
The Simpsons will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year in December.
ONTD, what’s your favorite Simpsons episode and gif/meme?
Christopher McQuarrie has closed a deal to return for two more Mission Impossible films. They will be filmed back-to-back with production set to start sometime this year.

- It's Day 24 of the partial government shutdown. The Clemson football team was invited to the White House to celebrate their national championship win over Alabama.
- Stacks of room-temperature burgers from McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger King sat around for hours on one table. Piles of lukewarm Domino's pizzas, McNuggets and fries on another. Homemade salad was the only alternative. Candles were lit.
- Unsurprisingly, they blamed someone else for this cheapo catering: "Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security, much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed -- so [Individual-1] is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favorite fast foods."
Carol Channing passed away early this morning at her home in Rancho Mirage, CA. Her publicist released the following statement:
"It is with extreme heartache, that I have to announce the passing of an original Industry Pioneer, Legend and Icon - Miss Carol Channing. I admired her before I met her, and have loved her since the day she stepped ... or fell rather ... into my life. It is so very hard to see the final curtain lower on a woman who has been a daily part of my life for more than a third of it. We supported each other, cried with each other, argued with each other, but always ended up laughing with each other. Saying good-bye is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, but I know that when I feel those uncontrollable urges to laugh at everything and/or nothing at all, it will be because she is with me, tickling my funny bone."
Her most well known performance was in "Hello, Dolly!", which she performed over 5000 times without missing a single performance. She won a Tony for the role of Dolly in 1964. She's also performed in the Broadway shows "So Proudly We Hail," "Let's Face It," "Lend An Ear," "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," "Show Girl," "Pygmalion," "The Millionairess," "The Vamp," "Four On A Garden," and "Wonderful Town." She won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in the film "Thoroughly Modern Millie". Her voice was one of the most reconizable and imitated in the world.
badgalriri is taking her father to court. Rihanna claims her dad, Ronald Fenty, recently started a talent development company in 2017 called Fenty Entertainment. Rihanna's beauty company is already trademarked Fenty Beauty, and she says her dad is profiting off of her.
In legal documents obtained by TMZ, the “Kiss It Better” singer claims her father and business partner booked a $15 million tour in Latin America and two concerts at Staples Center in Los Angeles and T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for $400,000. She claims that these were booked without her knowledge or consent.
Just last year, her father tried to trademark “Fenty” for a line of boutique hotels, but it was denied by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.
Rihanna has sent her father several cease and desist letters, but he’s ignored them. She has been forced to take it to court.

It started when Don posted a picture, and Kathy replied to him
Oh GREAT Don. I will never forgive you for your nasty tweet the day my smear campaign started. You know it was a fucking smear campaign and you have never taken a moment to apologize. Some liberal you are. Yes, my memory is long my ex friend. Shame on you. I kept a list. Fear me.
sigh ... ok, kathy. 1) we had one conversation on a flight about our mutual disgust for individual 1. i don't "friend" that quickly so we can't really be "exes." 2) had i been your "friend" and you had asked my opinion, i would have said, "kathy. for you own sake, please do NOT https://t.co/12enY2AQQt
The long running CW show Supernatural which has gained some sort of cult following of very devoted level of fans who are not afraid to show you exactly how passionate they are if they feel slighted in any way are shouting assault and other worrisome words. This past Sunday as actors Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki were out enjoying a few drinks at some Vancouver bar a fan decided it was ok to ask for photos. Fans were ok with the photos, it was the video of a young woman(livlikar)and Jensen in which she dared and boldly gave him a peck on the cheek and made him try on her glasses. This...was not ok. As the screenshots below will show, fans were very confused, angry, calling the fan slurs, and some even resulted to quick fanvids edits of Jensen and Danneel (Jensen's wife).
Some say they have every right to dislike this girl and call for her head in due to her liking/commenting a shady insta comment someone left on her page saying he looks "more comfortable with her than his wifey".
So, ONTD were the fans justified in their outrage? Or was it just another day in the Supernatural fandom?
p.s btw this is my first post so sorry for any screw-ups.

James McAvoy came onto GMA and talked a little bit about filming IT: Chapter Two and confessed Bill Skarsgard's portrayal freaked him out.
“He is amazing,” McAvoy said. “The guy who plays the clown is terrifying! He’s a lovely guy, and yet he really freaked me out.”
McAvoy says he was not alone thinking that, being in the presence of the clussy king actor in costume. "I remember standing there with the rest of the cast, all these adults, we’ve all done weird, freaky stuff, and we are all looking at each other going, ‘I don’t like being in here. I don’t like being an actor today.'"
The latest Assassins Creed video game garnered kudos for not only allowing players to pick between playing as a man or a woman (significant considering some of the messes this particular franchise has run into concerning playable female protagonists) but for also giving the player the freedom to choose who they want to romance.
Some of the developers at Ubisoft for the game talked about it.
Melissa MacCoubrey, narrative director of the game: “We knew that if we were making a game about choice, that philosophy had to permeate throughout the entire experience and not just gameplay. Having same-sex partners is part of that ability to play your own odyssey, and it was something we knew we wanted.”
Jonathan Dumont, creative director of Ubisoft: “Ancient Greece was a setting that lended itself to same-sex romance, so to be honest it just felt natural [...] We tried to approach it that way. We have a pretty big bank of voices but honestly we did not look at it from the romantic angle but more the point of view of: Is that an interesting character?
"Since the story is choice-driven, we never force players in romantic situations they might not be comfortable with. Players decide if they want to engage with characters romantically. I think this allows everybody to build the relationships they want, which I feel respects everybody’s roleplay style and desires.”
But in the second episode of the DLC, all that choice gets taken out of your hands. [Spoiler (click to open)]No matter how you played the game, (aka only playing Alexios as a gay man, Kassandra as a lesbian, being a childfree loner, or just continually rejecting the recurring NPC [Neema if you play as Alexios, and Natakas if you play as Kassandra]), the ending of the game just disregards all of that and shows how you've settled down with that NPC and had a kid together.
And as an extra kick, the DLC ending trophy is titled "Growing Up".
When contacted, Ubisoft responded with the following statement: “We strive to give players choice whenever possible in Odyssey and apologize to those surprised by the events in this episode, Without spoiling it, you will engage in an important relationship as part of a set story. The motivation behind this relationship is yours to explore in game and will be reflected in your character’s story arc. There is one episode left in Legacy of the First Blade which will tie your character’s actions together.”
Sidenote that the DLC is handled by a different studio as noted by MacCoubrey in an interview with Eurogamer about the presence of the NPC and their parent, Darius.
A nice quote about aging:[Spoiler (click to open)]“We live in a youth-obsessed culture that is constantly trying to tell us that if we are not young, and we’re not glowing, and we’re not hot, that we don’t matter. I refuse to let a system or a culture or a distorted view of reality tell me that I don’t matter. I know that only by owning who and what you are can you start to step into the fullness of life. Every year should be teaching us all something valuable. Whether you get the lesson is really up to you.” - Oprah Winfrey
Journalist and prolific Scientology critic Tony Ortega broke the news today that Leah Remini's show 'Scientology and the Aftermath' will finally air an episode featuring actor Danny Masterson’s accusers on February 18th. The episode, which was filmed for the second season, will air more than a year after it was pulled by request of the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office.
According to Ortega, A&E's decision to air the episode is an "extremely unusual and legally super ballsy" for a network to do. A member of DA Jackie Lacey's office admitted to one of the accusers that while the office is fully behind charges being filed, the investigation is being slowed by Scientology's involvement. A&E has decided that the DA has had more than enough time to come to a decision.
Reshooting for the show is happening in Los Angeles. For much more information on the case, visit today's Underground Bunker post.

Perhaps their most underwhelming iPhone launch yet, Apple’s iPhone sales continue to remain sluggish in comparison to recent years. Apple CEO Tim Cook blames this on trade tensions with China and a weak economy.
“In addition, these and other factors resulted in fewer iPhone upgrades than we had anticipated,” explained a delusional and out of touch Cook in a letter to investors. Maybe your pricing also attributed to your weak sales, just a thought.
The company’s battery replacement program to replace old iPhone batteries did not help either. The company offered existing owners the ability to swap out their old batteries that were unable to hold a charge for $29. Apple only expected to replace around 1-2 million batteries but actually replaced 11 million.
Cook claims, “some customers [were] taking advantage of significantly reduced pricing for iPhone battery replacements.” Several analysts suggest Apple needs to restrategize and cut iPhone prices to reignite sales.

The rapper made clear he’s not going to do anything that can be construed as sexually inappropriate. He recently turned down two female fans’ requests for a kiss on the cheek. “It’s too much R. Kelly stuff going on right now. No kisses on the cheek tonight. Shout-outs to these beautiful young ladies. Y’all get home safe, okay?” He is all too aware of the backlash against men who’ve used their power and influence to take advantage of others.
