Stop Calling Lindsay Shookus ‘Ben Affleck’s Girlfriend’ — She’s Actually A Total Boss!

Lindsay Shookus has worked in the entertainment industry for a long time, but she’s since been thrust into the limelight for a very different reason.

As you surely know, Miz Shookus became known to the public thanks to her high profile relationship with Ben Affleck. In fact, the Saturday Night Live producer is the Oscar winner’s FIRST public relationship following his split from longtime love Jennifer Garner.

On the sudden attention surrounding her life, Lindsay shared with Elle:

“My entire career has been behind the camera, and that’s definitely where I’m most comfortable. I’m a producer, I’m a mom, a friend. Being considered a public figure honestly makes me laugh.”

Very fair. This explains why Shookus and Affleck’s love story has seemed surprisingly low key — thus far.

And while the TV executive may hob nob with A-listers, see her friendship with Kristen Wiig for example, Lindsay has been making a name for herself at SNL since she was 22. Shookus landed her producing gig at the NBC sketch show after mentor Marci Klein (you know, Calvin Klein‘s daughter) stepped down.

In regards to her early days at SNL, Lindsay recalled:

“I was the first one in; I was the last one out. I was always like, ‘I’ll go! Send me to the shoot. I’ll stay till midnight, it’s okay.’ That’s the glorious thing about being 22—you have the energy. I lived on 50th Street. I worked on 50th Street. I walked the same four blocks every day.”

Thanks to her job, she became very comfortable with interacting with big names at a young age. Per Lindsay, it wasn’t long before Marci let her “interact with talent and take over more responsibilities.” Despite her talent for dealing with Tinseltown stars, Lindsay is aware that’s she’s in a transitional period in her life.

The blonde powerhouse concluded:

“I’ve gone through a lot of change recently and I’ve gone through some really hard times, but I believe in who I am more, and I wouldn’t give that up for anything.”

YASSSS. Way to be more than Ben Affleck’s girlfriend, girl!!

Sandy Hook Parents File Defamation Lawsuit Against Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones Over Calling The 2012 Shooting A Hoax!

The parents of two children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre have had enough of Alex Jones accusing them of being “crisis actors.”

Two defamation lawsuits were filed on Monday against the InfoWars host, accusing Jones, a popular conspiracy theorist who has claimed the 2012 shooting was a hoax, of peddling lies that have resulted in death threats.

The lawsuits — filed by Neil Heslin (above, right), the father of a 6-year-old boy killed in the shooting, and Leonard Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa, whose child Noah was also killed — are seeking more than $ 1 million in damages from Jones, InfoWars, and Free Speech Systems LLC.

Mark Bankston, the lawyer handling the cases for the parents, told HuffPost:

“Even after these folks had to experience this trauma, for the next five years they were tormented by Alex Jones with vicious lies about them. And these lies were meant to convince his audience that the Sandy Hook parents are frauds and have perpetrated a sinister lie on the American people.”

There are at least two other cases that accuse Jones of defamation.

Over the past few years, Jones has regularly perpetuated the conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook shooting, which left more than 20 people dead, was staged by the government. Like other conspiracy theorists, he has claimed that the parents of the child victims were merely crisis actors hired to sell the story.

He claimed in November 2016:

“The only problem is, I’ve watched a lot of soap operas, and I’ve seen actors before. And I know when I’m watching a movie and when I’m watching something real.”

Bankston, however, insists the parents are nothing but “genuine.” He told the publication:

“Anyone, parents or not, who spends 15 minutes talking to one of these parents will understand immediately how vile this lie was, and how genuine their pain is.”

Most recently, the InfoWars host has set his sights on Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, whom he has also accused of being a “crisis actor.”

Um… okay Jones.

Planned Parenthood Stirs Up Controversy With Deleted Tweet Calling For ‘Disney Princess Who’s Had An Abortion’!

A Planned Parenthood social media account probably intended to generate some controversy with their tweet Tuesday morning — but not this much!

The Keystone, Pennsylvania branch tweeted (and later deleted) a call for a Disney princess “who’s had an abortion” as well as a few others involved in controversial topics.

As you might expect, the tweet got a lot of responses before it was taken down, and the discussions continued as several Twitter users screen grabbed it.

There were horrified conservatives, sure, but also some shocked liberals and disapproving moderates. And also a few cheering them on!

We support a woman’s right to choose as much as possible, but we’re not convinced Disney could ever tackle this particular subject — they’ve never even had a Princess get pregnant (sequels don’t count)!

What do YOU think, Perezcious readers??

Kim Kardashian Slams Site For Calling Kris Jenner ‘Chubby-Faced’ In Throwback Pics!

Rule #1: don’t talk about Kim Kardashian West‘s momma!

On Tuesday, DailyMailTV published an article written by Jerry Oppenheimer — author of The Kardashians: An American Drama — which shares modeling pictures of a 22-year-old Kris Jenner shot by former boyfriend Alfred M. Garcia in 1977.

The momager — known then as Kristen Mary Houghton — was a store clerk and junior flight attendant for American Airlines before marrying Robert Kardashian the next year.

When DailyMailTV shared the story on Twitter, the initial headline read “Chubby-faced 22-year-old Kris Jenner models in never-before-seen shots.”

In the piece, Garcia describes his ex-girlfriend as a “little chubby” who “would not have made it as a real model” because of her facial structure. Additionally, the publication uses the word “chubby” four times in the article and in photo captions.

When Kim got word, she immediately SLAMMED the website on social media. The KUWTK star wrote:

We agree with Kimmy. Kris is gorgeous at ANY age!

Looking back, the photographer said the now-62-year-old “always had her eyes set on something bigger and grander,” adding:

“Kris was always going out with people with means and money. She always had her eyes set on the end of the rainbow. She was always looking for something grander. She never told me that, but I could tell she was always looking for something really great to come along. I was just a young kid working on trying to be a photographer.”

KJ was destined to be a star!

Far-Right YouTuber And Former Milo Yiannopoulos Intern Allegedly Murders Father For Calling Him A Nazi

Absolutely disturbing…

According to 911 calls obtained by The Daily Beast, Lane Davis Milo Yiannopoulos‘ ex-intern — allegedly stabbed his father to death on July 14 after he was called a Nazi and a racist.

It all began when the Donald Trump supporter began having an outburst about “pedophiles who were taking over the country,” prompting his parents to kick him out of the house.

While the dispatcher told Charles and Catherine Davis to avoid Lane until the cops arrived, the far-right blogger began chasing them around the property. Catherine said on the call:

“We’re trying to but he’s chasing us around the house… He’s mad about something on the internet about leftist pedophiles and he thinks we’re leftist and he’s calling us pedophiles. And I don’t know what all… He just lives on the internet and he gets really worked up about everything that’s going on. He needs an intervention of some kind here.”

Enraged by his mother’s 911 call, the YouTube rapper picks up a chef’s knife and ends up stabbing Charles in the chest and in the back.

“He’s dead, he’s dead, he’s dead.”

When authorities arrived, Lane told them the fight started over “whether toddlers could consent to sex or not,” and because of his father’s accusations of Lane being racist.

When word got back to Milo, he released the following statement claiming the man was simply a “volunteer” who had “anger” issues.

“Mr. Davis was a volunteer for me for a brief period of time prior to my founding MILO Inc. I was unhappy with his work and discontinued the relationship. I then experienced his anger firsthand as he threatened me and later went to BuzzFeed making false and inaccurate accusations.”

The Washington State-native is being held on $ 1 million bail. He pleaded not guilty to first degree murder, and his trial is scheduled for January.

The Internet Doesn’t Know What to Make of Donald Trump Calling Bob Corker ‘Liddle’

Following President Donald Trump’s Tuesday morning tweet spree criticizing Republican Sen. Bob Corker, the Internet had a field day attempting to get to the bottom of Trump’s new nickname for the Tennessee congressman: “Liddle’ Bob Corker.”

“Sen. Corker is the incompetent head of the Foreign Relations Committee, & look how poorly the U.S. has done,” he wrote. “He doesn’t have a clue as the entire World WAS laughing and taking advantage of us. People like liddle’ Bob Corker have set the U.S. way back. Now we move forward!”

Trump’s controversial comments came in the wake of Corker telling NBC’s Today show that the White House should “step aside” and let Congress handle tax legislation.

Twitter quickly jumped on the reignited feud, adding their own commentary on Trump’s insult. “Bob Corker stood in hall of our Gov’t and told reporter Trump is liar + unfit for office,” wrote. “Trump hid in his office tweeting Bob is ‘liddle.’”

Morning Joe Hosts Respond To Donald Trump’s Shade By Calling Out The President’s ‘Mental Health’ & ‘Childlike Ego’!

Morning Joe cohosts (and newly engaged couple) Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were all set to take their vacation, getting the jump on Fourth of July weekend. But then Donald Trump had to get disgusting on Twitter.

In case you missed it, the President of the United States angrily tweeted (after a piece in which they made fun of his fake Time magazine covers went viral) that Mika had a “low I.Q.” and that she was just angry that he wouldn’t let her into Mar-a-Lago with her “bleeding” face-lift.

Yeah. Very presidential.

Related: And Melania Fully Supports Him

Well, this morning, Joe and Mika decided to postpone their vacay to have a few words with 45…

Miz Brzezinski’s fiancé kicked off their last minute clap back, as he addressed their audience:

“Unfortunately, we’ve learned what we’ve always learned. He for some reason takes things very personally with women. He’s so much worse with women… He attacks women.”

You can say that again. And despite being the focal point of the Trumpster’s latest bout of cyberbullying (you gonna fix this or WHAT, Melania Trump?), the blonde TV personality says she’s doing just fine. The 50-year-old noted:

“I’m fine. My family brought me up really tough…He has a fixation. It does worry me about the country. He appears to have a fragile, impetuous, childlike ego that he can’t take it. It is unbelievably alarming that this president is so easily played. He is so easily played by a cable news host.”

Preach, girl, PREACH! Before concluding the topic, Mr. Scarborough had one piece of advice for POTUS:

“If you don’t like our show, and if you care about what’s best for America, turn us off.”

Although, we doubt Donnie will heed Joe’s advice as the pair revealed in a piece for The Washington Post that the president has an “unhealthy obsession with [their] show.” Staying in tune with their TV reaction to the controversy, the MSNBC stars once again called out Trump’s “mental health” as they wrote:

“America’s leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president. We have our doubts, but we are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, Morning Joe.”

Snap! Snap! Of course, the powerhouse couple didn’t stop there as they took Donald’s tweets to task and pretty much called the Commander-In-Chief a dirty liar. They continued:

“Mr. Trump claims that we asked to join him at Mar-a-Lago three nights in a row. That is false. He also claimed that he refused to see us. That is laughable.

The president-elect invited us both to dinner on December 30. Joe attended because Mika did not want to go. After listening to the president-elect talk about his foreign policy plans, Joe was asked by a disappointed Mr. Trump the next day if Mika could also visit Mar-a-Lago that night. She reluctantly agreed to go. After we arrived, the president-elect pulled us into his family’s living quarters with his wife, Melania, where we had a pleasant conversation. We politely declined his repeated invitations to attend a New Year’s Eve party, and we were back in our car within 15 minutes.”

Yeah, we’re gonna believe this side of the story. Sorry (not sorry), Mr. President.

Oh, and about those allegations Donald made regarding Mika’s supposed “face-lift,” the love birds dished:

“Mika has never had a face-lift. If she had, it would be evident to anyone watching Morning Joe on their high-definition TV. She did have a little skin under her chin tweaked, but this was hardly a state secret. Her mother suggested she do so, and all those around her were aware of this mundane fact.”

Well, there you have it!

Unfortunately, we’re sure Trump will HAVE to say something about this shade. *Sigh*

Demi Lovato Responds To Critics Calling Her Out For Cultural Appropriation

Demi Lovato is not backing down.

Related: Demi & Other Stars React To Manchester Explosion

The singer was accused of cultural appropriation when fans spotted her sporting dreadlocks in the No Promises video with Cheat Codes. Viewers immediately questioned her use of the hairstyle considering there is always a discord when white or non-black people sport them.

Twitter went in:

And now Demi herself has addressed the controversy. But if you thought an apology was involved, you’re so, so wrong.

She tweeted:

Then she changed the subject to her appearance on Jimmy Fallon:

Hmm, pulling the “haters” card is bound to garner some sympathy. But is it really hating when people are just pointing out that you may have done something wrong?

Well, whatever. The 24-year-old is clearly unbothered since she gave the most condescending response ever.

Do YOU think Demi was out of line???
