Weekend Small Talk: 9.15.17

Amanda Stanton is writing a memoir

Topping the list of things America doesn’t need: a tell-all book written by Amanda Stanton. I’m not sure what’s worse, the fact that she’s writing a book, or the fact that I have so many opinions about it. 

She’s calling the book “It Feels Good to Sick Up for Yourself” and I literally couldn’t roll my eyes harder if I tried. It sounds like it’s going to be a serious snooze, as Amanda has said, “At the end of the day, my book is going to be more positive than some tell-all trashing people.” 


First of all, this is clearly a dig at Andi Doorman after she wrote a tell-all bashing Josh Murray in every way. Burn. 


Second of all, we want a tell-all trashing people. If you go on the Bachelor and write a book, we expect juicy behind-the-scense secrets, gossip about other contestants, and intimate details about your break-ups. I don’t want to read about your excitement over being able to stick up for yourself by, like, sending a mean Tweet to Robby Hayes. Pass.

Will I read the book? No. But I will definitely Google it after it comes out to read the best (if any) excerpts if that’s what you’re asking. 

Josh Duhamel and Fergie broke up

So, even though I never understood why these two were a couple, this shocked me a little bit. Fergie was on E! News literally last week saying Josh was her rock and he’s always supporting her, they’re so in love, blah, blah, blah. Clearly, Fergie should add actress to her resumé.

The couple was married for 8 years, and sources are saying it’s their “differences” that caused the split. “Fergie is ‘fun and outgoing,’ while Duhamel is ‘charming and relaxed,’ explains the source.” So like, Fergie has fun and Josh doesn’t? Unclear.

There are also reports that Josh wanted more kids and to focus on family (the two have a 4 year old son together), and Fergie wanted to focus on her career. Must not be going so well though, because Fergie has released approximately one song in the past 10 years. 

All in all this is a sad breakup. I was rooting for them (I guess.)

Arie is (still) the worst choice for The Bachelor

If you read my blog about Arie becoming the Bachelor, you already know my opinion on the subject. But, honestly, things are looking even more bleak now.

Ever since the announcement, lots of people are coming forward saying that Arie is notorious for sleeping with 18 year olds (he’s 52 35) and cheating on his exes.  Reality Steve’s inbox is literally overflowing.


He also had a girlfriend up until about 2 months ago. She called him a few days before the big announcement when she heard rumors that he could potentially be named ‘The Bachelor.’ She asked him if the rumors were true and he wa like “nah.”


I obviously stand by my original opinion. This guy seems like a snake and I am not here for him.

Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo are expecting baby #2

I will be vey honest here, i had no idea they even had one baby. I’m not sure if they’re married and I have no energy to look into it so at this point it remains a mystery.


He and Leo DiCaprio definitely fall into that “I only date models with names that are hard to pronounce” category, I just haven’t been in the know when it comes to Adam Levine procreating with them.

Well, cool. Congrats.

Selena Gomez’s BFF gave her a kidney

Selena Gomez revealed on Instagram that when she needed a kidney transplant, her best friend, Francia Raisa, donated hers. Wow, literal BFF goals. 

For those that don’t know, Selena has Lupus, and that’s what caused the need for the transplant. People have apparently been questioning why she’s been so MIA lately and not putting out much new music, and I bet those people feel like real dicks now. Selena said this was “what she needed to do for her overall health.”

Sidetone: The articles about this said that Francia Raisa was an actress, and I was like ‘hm, never heard of her.’ So I looked it up and it turns out she’s the girl from Secret Life of the American Teenager.


Remember that trainwreck show? I didn’t know that she and Selena were even close, let alone “I’ll donate my kidney to you” close.

Have a great weekend! Or don’t. Either way.
