Doctors And Online Commenters Doubt Sam & Nia’s Pregnancy/Miscarriage Claims

A number of people, including doctors, are calling into question YouTube vloggers Sam and Nia’s pregnancy claims. First, doctors say that testing urine that has been diluted with toilet water — as Sam did in that weird “surprise, we’re pregnant” video — is not reliable and could lead to both false positive and false negative test results. Meanwhile, online commenters are also expressing doubts about the couple’s pregnancy and miscarriage two days later, saying that both Sam and Nia seem to be acting in the videos and seem all too delighted with how this heartbreak has made them temporarily famous. All I will say is that this whole thing makes me uncomfy! [Buzzfeed]

Katie Holmes wore a dress that Tom Cruise would have never allowed on the set of the movie she’s directing. She’s in the movie too, but it’s kind of unclear to me if this acid wash mini-dress is a costume or just Katie’s throwback summer lewk. Regardless, WERK. [Lainey Gossip]


Teresa Giudice is headed back to “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” after she completes her 15-month prison sentence for tax evasion. Duh, of course she is! Teresa is broke, leopard-print dresses don’t grow on trees, and the show would be nothing without her lunacy. [Us Weekly]

A woman is claiming that she banged Gavin Rossdale at the Playboy Mansion back in 2002, just before he married Gwen Stefani. It just so happens that I know someone who hooked up with Gavin around that same time — not sex, but more than hand-holding, let’s put it that way — so I totally believe this. The couple announced their split last week. [In Touch Weekly]

I feel sorry for the sketch artist who is catching hell for the drawing she did of Tom Brady sitting in the courtroom during a Deflategate hearing this week. Sure, he looks, to quote Dlisted, like “a sad zombie Thundercat with mange,” but maybe the artist wanted to have a little fun at work. What’s wrong with that? [Dlisted]


Kristen Stewart is on the cover of Nylon and tells the magazine that people can Google her if they want to figure out if she’s “gay” or not, saying that she’s not interested in defining herself:

“Google me, I’m not hiding. If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it. But I am an actress, man. I live in the fucking ambiguity of this life and I love it. I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like, ‘I’m coming out!’ No, I do a job. Until I decide that I’m starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving…I don’t. I’m just a kid making movies. I think in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don’t think it’s necessary to figure out if you’re gay or straight. It’s like, just do your thing.”

Hey, good for her! Do you, K-Stew. [Nylon]

Lamar Odom is denying reports that he harassed ex Khloe Kardashian outside of a SoulCycle studio in Los Angeles, allegedly because he was angry about her relationship with James Harden, who plays for the NBA’s Houston Rockets. “Nobody got followed, nobody got hassled, nobody got harassed, nobody got grabbed on, none of that. I don’t believe in following people around,” Lamar told TMZ. I know Lamar has problems but I still hold out for him and Khloe to get back together. That was love, y’all. [People]

As someone who practically has an iPhone attached to my hand at all times, I relate to this funny (well, funny for the New Yorker) list of what will happen if I didn’t. [New Yorker]


There’s nothing cats love sitting on more than laptops, but that’s inconvenient and cat hair is bad for your keyboard, so why not get Mr. Meow his own laptop scratching post. Yeah, I know, he’ll probably still prefer YOUR laptop, but whatever, it’s worth a shot. [Hopes & Fears]

Today in Killing Your Idols, Broadly has an interesting feature about how Dr. Seuss was actually a philandering bigot! [Broadly]
