8. Josh Duggar was defended by his parents and then his victims
If you’ve been hiding under a rock, then you might’ve missed out on the whole Josh Duggar molestation story. He was accused of molesting five girls, some including his sisters. His parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar appeared on The Kelly File in order to tell their side of the story. Despite that, the story in all of its vast grossness, didn’t stop there.
His sisters, who were also victims, have spoken out in defense of their brother. Jill and Jessa Duggar have since broken their silence about the scandal and claim that he isn’t a child molester.
Jill Duggar revealed to Megyn Kelly, “We are victims, they can’t do this to us.”
Jessa said, “The system that was set up to protect kids, both those who make stupid mistakes or have problems like this in their life and the ones that are affected by those choices. It’s greatly failed.”
Jessa said that what her brother did to them was very wrong, but also defended him to those who have called him a child molester, rapist or pedophile. She revealed, “I’m like, that is so overboard and a lie really. I mean, people get mad at me for saying that but I can say this because I was one of the victims.”
7. Amanda Bynes has crept out of the wood work
Amanda Bynes has made a rare appearance this week! On Wednesday, Bynes crept out into West Hollywood looking every part of the glam actress. Her attorney says that for those who are wondering about her current mental state, she is doing just great.
Her lawyer said, “Amanda is doing great. She appreciates all of the love and support she receives from family, friends and fans.”
It’s good to see her out and about doing normal things and we’re glad to hear that she is definitely doing better with her life. When she was a tabloid staple, her antics had fans wondering if she was on the path to self destruction. Luckily for her, some good people stepped into her life and turned her around.

5. Britney spears paints topless
Britney Spears has revealed in a new interview that she sits around in her art room and paints topless while listening to Mariah Carey. She said, “I love Mariah Carey. Still to this day. I was painting in my room. I have an art room, and I just paint on the walls and do all this kind of crazy stuff. I bought her greatest hits and her new Infinity record yesterday, and I was just in there with my top off, just like painting and doing all this artsy fartsy stuff. I love her. I love her voice.”
When asked if she makes a habit out of walking around topless, she said, “In my art room, that’s my place…It’s the best.”
Edit: We do not have pictures of Britney Spears’ topless painting habits, so don’t ask.

It appears that Kendall and Kylie Jenner are in a competition to see which of them can post more racy Instagram pictures. A source revealed, “Kylie and Kendall are competitive over who has more Instagram followers. Kendall has always had more, but now Kylie is closing in on her fast. Kylie has told Kendall that she will pass her by 2016! Kendall isn’t happy about that and says she’s going to post more racy pics to keep up with her little sis.”
Of course they couldn’t let Caitlyn Jenner have the spotlight completely to herself, now could they?

In an effort to remain relevant, heiress Paris Hilton has revealed that she owns flying squirrels when speaking with a DJ in the U.K. She said, “I have, like, 30, pets. They’re so cute. I have dogs, ferrets, cats, a miniature pony and flying squirrels. (The squirrels) are in, like, this big cage, they float around. What they really do is floating and falling.”
2. Jason Alexander talks about why ‘Seinfeld’ fiance Susan was killed off
In an interview with Howard Stern, Seinfeld actor Jason Alexander revealed the decision to kill off his on-screen fiancee, played by Heidi Swedberg.
He said, “I couldn’t figure out how to play off of her. Her instincts for doing a scene, where the comedy was, and mine were always misfiring. And she would do something, and I would go, ‘Okay, I see what she’s going to do – I’m going to adjust to her.’ And I’d adjust, and then it would change.”
He added, “We could do the most horrible things to her, and the audience was still on my side.”
Chris Brown is fighting with Karrueche Tran
No, it’s not a flashback to 2009 when Chris Brown beat the crap out of Rihanna. This time around, it hasn’t come to blows, but apparently Chris is now fighting with his girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
On Thursday night, they went to the Playhouse nightclub together. She was miffed and decided to leave, but he gave chase, thus ending up in her SUV. She dropped him and his friends off, but he still ended up at her place at three o’clock in the morning, banging on her door.
Later, she went to Norm’s diner, but he followed her there where a shouting match ensued. The cops were called, but upon arrival, didn’t find any evidence of a crime, so they left.
What else did we miss while the world was so focused on Caitlyn Jenner?
