Tacky! Mariah Carey ‘Quietly’ Sold The 35-Carat Diamond Engagement Ring James Packer Gave Her Two Years Ago…

Tacky, tacky, tacky!

Mariah Carey reportedly up and sold the 35-carat diamond engagement ring that was given to her two years ago by one-time fiancé James Packer.

This is coming out new today in media reports that allege the singer had one of her business managers “quietly” sell the ring to a Los Angeles jeweler.

One source said of the alleged transaction (below):

“A confidentiality agreement was signed, but the jeweler is currently selling it, and there’s only one such ring. Mariah Carey’s public relations people are desperately trying to keep the story from the press, and have threatened the jeweler with litigation if he discloses her name.”

Hmmm…

Insiders in Carey’s camp are allegedly SUPER PISSED that this story was leaked, but it’s a big deal that someone reportedly with so many assets would even want to sell the ring… which, FYI, is worth a reported $ 2.1 million.

Carey’s publicist told Page Six (below):

“Mariah has been very vocal recently about her choice to move forward in her life surrounded by positivity. That requires leaving emotional and material baggage behind, including an old engagement ring from an ex-boyfriend.”

Ah, yes. The ‘good vibes only’ lifestyle change. Pretty easy to get good vibes when you bank another $ 2.1 million on a failed engagement, no?!

Just sayin’!!!

Kylie Jenner: Why Fans Are Convinced She Gave Birth Last Night!

Are you getting sick of hearing about Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy yet?

No? It’s ridiculously juicy gossip and so very dramatic and you will never, ever get sick of hearing about it?

Good, we’re all on the same page!

There’s just something so interesting about Kylie being pregnant — maybe it’s that she’s only 20 years old, or maybe that the baby’s father is Travis Scott, a guy she was dating for MAYBE a month or two when he impregnated her.

Or maybe it’s because society (and Kris Jenner) has been conditioning us for so long to keep up with the Kardashians, and since Kylie refuses to confirm the news or even go out in public, we’ve had a heck of a time keeping up with it.

This whole thing seems more like a storyline on a bad soap opera than something that is actually happening to a real person, and it’s just been fascinating, right?

But last night, this storyline may have reached its climax …

That’s right, several people are reporting that Kylie gave birth last night!

A reporter named Sophia Julia tweeted “My sources say Kylie Jenner is in labor” — she later added “I don’t know the Kardashians. No one has confirmed sh-t. Just what I heard!!”

Another person tweeted “Inside scoop: Kylie Jenner is in labor. You heard it here first.”

Someone else claimed to have a friend who spoke to someone at Cedars-Sinai, the hospital in L.A. where the Kardashians have their babies, and that that someone said that Kylie was in labor.

There have even been some screenshots of a text message exchange going around in which one person claims to have a friend working at Cedars who told them that Kylie was there.

There’s another screenshot that’s been going around too — one from Travis Scott’s Snapchat.

Travis Scott Snapchat

In the snap, Travis is on a plane, and he captioned the photo “Make it home to ya one way or another.”

Many people interpreted that as his way of saying that Kylie actually was in labor yesterday, and that he was rushing back to California to be with her.

It’s a lot of information, huh?!

Unfortunately, none of it seems to be true.

A Kylie insider spoke to Radar Online and said that “there was a false alarm,” and that she’s only seven months pregnant right now.

TMZ also dismissed the rumors, and they even pointed out that the Travis Scott Snapchat that was being used as evidence wasn’t even posted yesterday, it’s from last month.

It’s interesting though, because many different people did seem certain that Kylie was at that hospital, and Radar’s source referred to it all as “a false alarm.”

So was she actually in the hospital yesterday?!

The general consensus is that her due date is in early February, so if that’s true, it’s definitely possible that she could have thought the baby was coming.

The last few weeks of pregnancy are tough, and they’re probably even tougher for a 20-year-old who’s never been through anything like it before.

Whatever’s happening, we just hope Kylie and her baby are healthy.

Well, that, and also that we get a damn confirmation soon.

On The First Day Of Christmas, Black Phoenix Gave To Me…

Black Phoenix Krampus 2017

Rejoice! You have survived 2017! All the natural disasters, all the important people whipping their dick out without permission, and all the bat shittiness from the Orange Julius Caesar. You’re still here. So relax, have a glass of eggnog, and watch a holiday classic. Like The Thin Man, Die Hard, or even Batman Returns. I’m currently waiting for Krampus for our usual round of reindeer games. I’m making some birch switches and Krampus is bringing his manacles. He’s a traditionalist but I’m sure he’ll some of the other… devices I have in store. A silver lining to this year being so evil, it gives Krampus more energy and stamina. He likes it when I wear some scent, especially since we get all sweaty from all the naughty naughty things we do. I’d tell you but Widge gets all sensitive and prudish. So I will tell you about the scents that Black Phoenix offering this Yule season for when you kiss (or other amorous act) Santa Claus. He could use some attention too.

First we start with some old favorites. For the spirit of the season, we have Midnight Mass with its sacred incenses and for the ‘other’ spirit of the season we have Eggnog with its sweet brandy, dark rum, heavy cream, sugar, and a dash of nutmeg. If you want someone a bit more interesting than the standard Santa there is La Befana, the Italian Christmas witch who rides a broomstick and pops down a chimney to deliver toys to good children. No animal slavery here. You have the smokiness of chimney dust and charcoal, the lilies and parma violets appropriate for a lady of a certain age, and cypress for her broom all given a sugary sweetness for all the children she visited. Also there is Ded Moroz, or Grandfather Frost, who can give gifts to the worthy but can also he can punish the unworthy with the power of winter: icing over farm fields, burying homes in snow, and freezing those who get on his bad side. For his good side you get golden and white amber but then for his bad side you have the dark menacing woods with teak, redwood, bois du rose and tree moss, the magic of sage and the ever present snow.

Now here are some of the newcomers. There is Hearth with its smell of pipe tobacco, cherry wood, the warm, worn leather of an easy chair and a pleasant, subtle waft of fireplace smoke. I’m assuming this is right because I live in Florida where winter is considered a myth made up by Yankees. We also have The Fruit of Paradise. No, not the apple, the pomegranate. It is the reason for the season in ancient Greek myth where Persephone ate some of its seeds and has to spend winter done in the Underworld with Hades while her mother, Demeter, grieves and makes the earth cold and barren. So I guess Persephone is the first snowbird. Hypothermia is a scent that is bracing and chilly but without all that shivering, limbs freezing, and organ failure.

Black Phoenix Winter PhobiasAnd what is Christmas without food? Lots and lots of food. You got Blackcurrant Sufganiyot (sufganiyot is like a Jewish version of a jelly doughnut) so you get the smell of fried sugary dough and blackcurrants in Chocolate Stout Cupcake that reminds one of, well, chocolate, sugar, and stout; Peppermint Cream Cupcake that smells of red velvet cake and peppermint. Straight and to the point. Actually it’s more like straight and to your tummy, thighs, butt… you get the idea.

There are also An Evening with the Spirits such as Spirit Board and Ectoplasm, the Snowdrift mixtures like Frostbitten Dorian and Frostbitten Snake Oil, and the Yule Phobias with Allodoxaphobia (Fear of Opinions) and Viscacaephobia (Fear of Kissing Under the Mistletoe), but again I saved the best for last. Black Phoenix made a perfume line based on that perennial favorite, The Twelve Days of Christmas. Of course, this being Black Phoenix, they take a more macabre twist on the song.

With whimsical but horrific illustrations by Drew Rausch, each scent reflects both the song lyric and the creepy take Dave gives to it. For instance, Partridge in a Pear Tree. As you can see in the picture, this is not a pear. So not a pear. More like a writhing spider egg sac. You have wild plum and black musk representing the proud spider mama and lemon sugar representing the eggs. Don’t ask me why lemon sugar…talk to Black Phoenix about that. You also have Five Golden Rings where the rings are being removed in a brutal but efficient manner. You have golden amber, lemon peel, and royal agarwood for the gold, tonka bean and white orris for the exposed, and a splash of blood. Again, do not ask me about this.

There is so much to choose from so go to Black Phoenix and browse their massive selection. And tell them that Need Coffee sent you. Now if you will excuse me, I have to unwrap Krampus’ package.
