Jim Bob and Josh are keeping up with their strict workouts with their tough-as-nails personal trainer, and Jill and Jana deliver a baby for the first time during their midwifery apprenticeship! Read on for the full ’19 Kids & Counting’ recap.
Jill and Jana Duggar are really taking to their midwifery apprenticeship seriously, and have learned so much from their hands-on experience — they are finally called to help deliver the baby for their client Heather!
Jana & Jill Help Deliver A Baby
Jana and Jill get calls that Heather went into full labor, and they are needed right away to help deliver their baby. Although Heather is wanting a natural delivery without medicine, her pain reaches a level 10 right as she is dilated and about to welcome the baby. Luckily her husband Alden remains cool, calm and collected, and they deliver a healthy baby girl!
Despite all of the screams and palpabale agony from delivery, the Duggar girls are not discouraged from continuing to study midwifery — which is amazing, because someone has to do it!
Josh & Jim Bob Train With A Personal Trainer
Meanwhile, Josh and Jim Bob Duggarare continuing with their workout routine in an effort to get fit and drop some pounds. They have been logging some serious hours with their personal trainer Steve Conley, who is a former NFL player and doesn’t mess around. He pushes them to their fullest, even though they are both incredibly out of shape.
Josh even admits he has poor form and his body doesn’t know how to be athletic most of the time, and Jim Bob says his favorite part of the workouts is sitting in between sets! But they keep working hard, and hopefully will only improve.
Duggar Boys Plant A Greenhouse
As the Duggar boys (with help from the girls) built a greenhouse to grow some plants and fresh produce, Michelle Duggar incorporated the greenhouse and growing seeds into their homeschooling and daily bible lesson. The kids think it’s fun to take what they’ve learned in the classroom and incorporate it in the real world — and they are having a blast growing their own plants! Hopefully, the fresh produce will help their family with their new diet.
The girls volunteer at a coffee shop
Jessa and Jinger decide to volunteer at a local coffee shop called Mama Carmen’s Cafe, in order to raise money to donate to an orphanage in Guatamala. Although the girls are stoked to volunteer for a good cause, they have to get to work at 5:30 a.m. — not their cup of Joe!
While volunteering, the girls learn so much more about being a barista than they thought — they learn to make all kinds of coffee drinks, smoothies, teas and how to use the cash register. The manager even said their friendly personality and manners makes them appealing to customers and has helped them earn business!
It’s fun for them too — Jinger loves coffee and gets the shakes from so much caffeinne, and cute boys come in to flirt with them. But Jim Bob warns that any boys who want to talk to his girls must come through him first!
Finally, the whole Duggar clan comes in, and the girls can actually handle all of their orders — so many at one time! At the end, they count up how much money they’ve raised, and it’s a grand total of $1,010.41 for charity.
Looks like the Duggar family loves giving back! What did YOU think of tonight’s episode, HollyMoms? Do you think the Duggar ladies are good little workers? Let us know in the comments below!
The explosives that detonated during the Boston Marathon were made out of metal pressure cookers.
New reports reveal that “pressure cookers bombs” were used during the Boston Marathon on April 15, which killed three people, including an 8-year-old boy, and injured 176 more. The explosives were inside two “six-liter pressure cookers and hidden in black duffel bags on the ground,” according to the Associated Press.
“One of the explosives contained shards of metal and ball bearings, and another contained nails,” explains an expert who wished to remain anonymous due to the ongoing investigation.
Details About The Explosives: What Were They Made Of?
These explosives are similar to the ones outlined in an article titled "Make a bomb in the kitchen of your Mom,” which was featured in al-Qaeda magazine.
According to an FBI and Homeland Security Intelligence report in 2010, pressure cooker explosives have been used in Pakistan, Afghanistan and India.

Kim Kardashian’s Workout Outfit: Covers Derrière With Sweatshirt
Kim has been keeping with the trend of keeping her booty covered up with a sweatshirt wrapped around her waist after photographers had previously snapped some unflattering shots of her in tight workout pants that showed off every inch of her growing butt.
She also made sure her breasts, which have reportedly grown four cup sizes since she’s been pregnant, were covered, unlike the outfit she wore to the gym the day before. She donned a tight black tank top and was was totally spilling out of her outfit.
She even took to her personal blog on April 10 to describe her perfect workout style:
The perfect gym gear is Lululemon yoga pants and LnA t-shirts!

Kim and her family had a sit down interview with Ryan Seacrest that is set to air on April 21 and HollywoodLife.com has the scoop on what she did and didn’t talk about!
Kim Kardashian reflected on the past five years of her life in an E! special called Ryan Seacrest With the Kardashians: An E! News Presentation. But did she talk about the elephant in the room?
Kim Kardashian Dissed Kris Humphries In New Special
HollywoodLife.com spoke to a source who tells us that Kim didn’t mention Kris Humphries one time!
“The whole family got together for this,” the source says. “Nothing about the divorce was talked about because Kim has completely moved on and is looking forward to putting all this behind her.”
Now, that’s a total diss to Kris and an awesome one! Why? Because if she’s talking about the past five years of her life and doesn’t mention Kris, it shows she’s totally moved on! We are SO happy that Kim didn’t mention Kris, and that she’s happy!
Kim was married to Kris for 72-days and he refuses to grant her a divorce because he feels she conned him into marrying her for fame. He wants an annulment so that he can get married in the church again.
They are headed to trial on May 6 and members of the Kardashian family are expected to testify. Kim will be about to give birth to her baby girl, since she is expected to give birth in July.
If you want to watch the Ryan Seacrest With the Kardashians: An E! News Presentation, you can catch it on E! April 21 at 9 p.m.
The Australian model admits that the end has come simply because working for the lingerie company is taking up too much of her time. “This is a natural evolution,” she told The Sydney Morning Herald. “The thing is, I’ve been modeling since I was 13. I’m now entering a new phase in my life. I have felt this coming since my son was born and, after I became a mother, I realized I needed to prioritize my time.”
Along with motherhood, Miranda is devoting herself to various projects including the release of her second book, Empower Yourself, her skin care line, Kora Organics, and campaigns for Quantas and Mango, among others. “I’m just not in a position to commit to a full contract at this time. It’s three months at a bare minimum,” she says of the demanding duties of an Angel.
While we don’t blame her for making motherhood her first priority, sources told us that contractual issues also played a part in her decision. “It all came down to contractual issues. Miranda is busy doing her own thing and working on her own projects and they couldn't see eye-to-eye on the terms of the new contract," a source told us.
While we won’t be seeing the stunner flaunt about in embellished lingerie as frequently as we’re used to, she hasn’t cut ties with Victoria’s Secret completely! In fact, she was already invited to dust off her wings and walk in this year’s annual fashion show — and we are so excited to hear that she’ll be back on the runway!
Do YOU think Miranda is moving on too soon or do you think it’s time for her to retire? Comment and VOTE!
Watch the viral sensation that ‘Family Guy’ creator Seth MacFarlane calls ‘abhorrent.’
Since it first began airing more than 10 years ago, Family Guyhas basically existed to shock and offend — but its latest, and most newsworthy, offense appears to be completely coincidental. The show’s March 17 episode, titled “Urban Cowboy,” included a scene in which Peter Griffin (Seth MacFarlane) killed runners at the Boston Marathon, followed by another scene in which he created mass hysteria by setting off two explosions from a remote location.
The video, which is quickly making its way around the internet, makes it look like Peter intentionally killed runners at the marathon by setting off two explosions — which is absolutely not what happened.
Seth MacFarlane Responds To ‘Family Guy’ Boston Bombing Video
Seth, 39, addressed the video on Twitter as soon as he saw it, taking the uploader to task.
“The edited Family Guy clip currently circulating is abhorrent,” Seth tweeted April 16. “The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims.”
WATCH: ‘Family Guy’ Scenes Reminiscent Of Boston Bombings
What say you, HollywoodLifers? Was it wrong for someone to edit these two scenes together, or was the person just trying to point out the eerie similarities? Vote below:
Following the dual explosions at the finish line of the Boston marathon, crucial parts of a bomb have been discovered, right beside where Governor Patrick was sitting.
After two explosions ripped through the Boston marathon on April 15, police began to look for a evidence of the bombs that caused them, and some shocking discoveries have been made. Three people were killed by the blasts, and the homemade bombs were made from pressure cookers. The circuit board from the first bomb was found “directly across the street from where Governor Deval Patrick had been sitting.” The bombs were made with “nails, metal and ball bearings.” So scary.
Details From First Bomb Discovered At Boston Marathon
“Investigators found circuit board believed used to trigger marathon bombs.” tweeted The Boston Globe, followed by ”The circuit board was found directly across the street from where Gov. Patrick had been sitting earlier.”
The newspaper reports on the explosive devices found:
Investigators have also recovered components of the bombs, enabling them to determine what they consisted of two six-liter pressure cookers packed with nails, metal and ball bearings. The makeshift bombs were placed in black duffel bags, the official said.
The one that exploded first was placed on the ground on Boylston Street, across from finish-line viewing stands where dignitaries, including Governor Deval Patrick, had been sitting earlier. The second duffel blag was placed on the ground about 75 to 100 yards down the street, outside the Forum restaurant at 755 Boylston, according to the official.
Selena wore a bindi while performing her hot new single ‘Come & Get It’ on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on April 16. After she wore one at the MTV Movie Awards, she came under fire with a religious group. Do YOU think it’s offensive?
Selena looked gorgeous wearing a blue Versace dress. Her hair was stunning straightened! She wore a small bindi on her forehead. Do you think she should stop wearing the spiritual symbol?
Universal Society of Hinduism Asks Selena Gomez For Apology
Selena, 20, has been asked to apologize by the Universal Society of Hinduism. Hindu statesman, Rajan Zed, told PerezHilton.com:
“The Bindi on the forehead is an ancient tradition in Hinduism and has religious significance. It is also sometimes referred to as the third eye and the flame, and it is an auspicious religious and spiritual symbol… It is not meant to be thrown around loosely for seductive effects or as a fashion accessory aiming at mercantile greed. Selena should apologise and then she should get acquainted with the basics of world religions.”
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Should Selena stop wearing a Bindi as an accessory?
“UPCOMING: Saudi Embassy spokesman Jail Aljubeir says the Revere man is ‘more a witness than anything else,’” The Boston Globe tweeted on April 16.
"He's been fully cooperating with authorities. We were informed by US authorities that no Saudi is a suspect," said Nail Aljubeir, spokesman for the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington. “We want to know about it [the investigation] as much as everybody else. We're working very closely with US authorities on this. As of yesterday, we were informed that there were no Saudi suspects. He's more a witness than anything else.”
Earlier today, April 16, it was reported that detectives raided the Boston home of a Saudi student, 20. FBI agents and bomb disposal officers swept his apartment in the suburbs of Boston, after he was arrested at the scene of the explosions. The alleged suspect was reportedly under police guard in a local hospital, where he was being treated for burns and various wounds, after he was allegedly tackled to the ground by a bystander who believed he was acting suspiciously.
However, with the Embassy’s statement, it appears as though the Saudi Arabian man is more of “a witness.”
On April 15, Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis said authorities do not have a suspect in the bombing.
The explosions on April 15 claimed the lives of three people. At least 176 were also injured. Sadly, the number continues to grow.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Will the culprit be caught?
You came within several feet of running into each other, according to a new report in UK’s The Sun.
If the timing was just slightly different, you two would have seen each other face-to-face for the first time since the cheating episode. Talk about the ultimate awkward moment!
Kristen, A Run-In Is Inevitable
Now Kristen, I have to be honest with you – Hollywood is not that big a place. And you and Liberty both have long lives ahead of you.
You are both beautiful, talented and sensitive women who live professionally in the world of entertainment – you as an actress and Liberty as a model and actress.
It’s inevitable that at some point you two will end up at the same event or restaurant or party. You have to be prepared – that will happen.
Unfortunately, until that moment occurs, there’s really nothing you can do to defuse the situation.
At one point, immediately following the discovery of the cheating, there were unsubstantiated reports that you planned to write a letter of apology to Liberty. But I don’t believe that ever happened. It probably wouldn’t have been a good idea anyway.
You made a terrible mistake when you got involved with Rupert, but your chief responsibility was to your own boyfriend, Rob. You needed to apologize and make peace with the man that you loved and betrayed, and you did that.
In Liberty’s situation, it was Rupert’s responsibility to apologize to his wife and try to repair their marriage. Clearly, he didn’t do a good enough job of that or their marriage was already too damaged to survive the cheating episode.
Liberty herself had admitted in earlier interviews that her marriage had its’ challenges, and that was before the cheating.
Kristen, Just Keep Avoiding Liberty Ross
The bottom line Kristen, is that it was best that you didn’t reach out to Liberty to try to apologize.
She wouldn’t have wanted to talk to you – it would have been too painful and uncomfortable for both of you.
I doubt that she really blames you for ending her marriage. Your affair was just the catalyst which set off the inevitable. Any contact with you would not have helped heal her wounds.
Now, though, you have to accept that the two of you may end up being in the same place at the same time again in the future.
My advice to you Kristen, is to do your best to avoid her, if you are in the same vicinity.
If you go to a party and hear that she is already there, then leave. Ditto if you go to the same restaurant – discreetly exit.
Don’t put yourself or Liberty into an uncomfortable and embarrassing position. You don’t want a confrontation and neither does she. There’s absolutely nothing to be gained by you and Liberty meeting again at this point, or ever.
Kristen, you’ve handled the aftermath of your mistaken affair maturely and responsibly in every way so far.
Rob’s renewed love for you, is proof of that.
You were right to steer clear of Liberty at Coachella and to just move on your life while she moves on with hers. Do you agree HollywoodLifers? Let me know!

Dr. Lieberman was once a psychiatric resident at Bellevue Emergency Room.
