Jersey Shore’s Ronnie “Ron Ron” Ortiz-Magro Talks about his Battle with Depression

in Celebrities by

Popular Jersey Shore star, Ronnie has been in the news a lot lately and not for anything good. Known originally for his outrageous dance movies and his on and off again relationship with co-star Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola. His current relationship with his on and off again baby momma Jen Harley has been so explosive that police got involved. Their contentious relationship has also spilled over into the social media with each one of them accusing the other of awful behavior. Now, Ronnie has come clean about suffering from depression and the reason why he decided to head to rehab.

Fans watched as the couple imploded during season 2 in a very dramatic fashion. During an episode last September, there was a huge fight between Ronnie and Jen over the loss of her dog. Jen claimed that MTV edited most of what lead up to the fight and focused on the dramatic ending that saw police getting involved. The major fight had to do with Jen’s missing dog Kimber. Jen was desperately looking for her dog and Ron would not answer any of her calls. She later found out that Ron found her dog dead at the bottom of the pool at her house. She claims that she had heard multiple stories about what happened to her beloved dog and felt like she was being lied to about the situation. She confronted Ron and the situation blew up. The police were called and the two hurled accusations at each other. Now Ron is revealing that after everything that happened during Season 2, he decided to head to rehab.

Ron is now revealing that season 2 left him feeling angry and resentful. He was very depressed and drinking constantly. He went to rehab in January at the HeadWaters Origins Treatment Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. He decided to go also because he wants to be a better father to his daughter with Jen, Ariana Sky. When interviewed about his decision he said, “I was just making the wrong decisions, and I was very depressed,” Ronnie explained. “And when I was depressed, I would turn to drinking. And then when I would drink, bad things would just continue to happen because I wasn’t reacting the way I should.”

During the interview, he also says that he is still struggling despite going to rehab. “I think it’s a chronic disease. It’s a progressive disease. I’m still struggling,” he said of his depression and alcoholism. “You stop and you start up again, and it’s worse than when you stopped. You’re just like, ‘Wow, I thought I had this under control,’ but at the end of the day, it has full control over you.”

 

Chris Pratt Posts a Response to Ellen Page’s Outspoken Criticism of his Church

in Celebrities by

Chris Pratt has been very outspoken lately about the love of his church and his religion. During a recent appearance on The Colbert Show, Pratt discussed his latest diet, called the Daniel Fast which is a bible-based diet that honestly sounded very extreme to us. Pratt talked at great length about the diet and how it is a 21 day fast and prayer session that pretty much just sounds a lot like starvation. He has been talking a lot about how important his religion and his church, Hillsong, has been to him and it caught the attention of another famous actor, Ellen Page.

Ellen Page is very outspoken about the mistreatment of the LGBTQ community. Once it became known that the church he attends is infamous for sending children to gay conversion therapy and for being very anti-LGBTQ, she tweeted asking Pratt to address the church’s stance on LGBTQ individuals. When she was criticized for speaking out, she backed up her original question by saying, “If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed. Being anti LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t two sides. The damage it causes it severe. Full stop. Sending love to all. Conversion therapy and anti lgbtq rhetoric is extremely damaging. Children kill themselves. People suffer.”

The mega church to the stars released a statement in 2o15 after an investigation into the church’s support of gay conversion therapy, (which has been proven to be extremely damaging and absolutely does not work) saying that anyone is welcome to their church but that the “do not affirm a gay lifestyle and because of this we do not knowingly have actively gay people in positions of leadership.”

Pratt took his Instagram to address Page’s criticism of the church. He said in a lengthy post, “It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which ‘hates a certain group of people’ and is ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ.’ Nothing could be further from the truth,” he wrote. “I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone. Despite what the Bible says about divorce, my church community was there for me every stop of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk. They helped me tremendously offering love and support. It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race or gender.” He does go on to state that he is not a spokesperson but his comment sounds like it was generated by the Hillsong PR machine.

Chris pratt response to Ellen Page

Hillsong is hugely popular among the stars. Celebs like Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey Baldwin attend services. The church tries to appeal to a younger crowd though pop music and concert lighting. It has a reputation for being the “hip” version of church. But for as hip as it is, it has been glossing over their true stance on the LGBTQ community and Pratt’s post sounds more like PR hype than a genuine response.

Woody Allen Files a Lawsuit Against Amazon

in Celebrities by

Woody Allen Sues Amazon for $68 MillionWoody Allen has just filed a huge lawsuit against the major online retailer, Amazon, specifically the Amazon Studios division. He filed a $68 million lawsuit alleging that the streaming service is in breach of contract. The lawsuit states that Amazon Studios backed out of a four film deal with the director based on “a 25-year old baseless accusation.” His adopted daughter Dylan Farrow has made allegations that he was inappropriate towards her when she was young. He denies the allegations and has never been arrested or convicted of a crime. He believes that Amazon is using those allegations against him in order to back out of a four film deal.

It started when Amazon refused to release his film, “A Rainy Day in New York” he tried to inquire as to why they were refusing to stream the movie. He claims that he was given  only vague answers. The movie starring Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, Selena Gomez, Jude Law, Diego Luna and Liev Schreiber is about two young people that arrive in New York to spend the weekend together and are met with bad weather and adventure.

In January of 2018, he was told by the team at Amazon that the movie would be released in early 2019. Late in June of 2018, Allen was told that the deal was terminated. Allen signed his first agreement with Amazon in 2016 for his movie “Cafe Society” and due to the success of that film, they signed a multi-movie deal shortly after that.

According to the lawsuit, the termination was due to,”supervening events, including renewed allegations against Mr. Allen, his own controversial comments, and the increasing refusal of top talent to work with or be associated with him in any way, all of which have frustrated the purpose of the Agreement.”

The suit is seeking $68 million in damages . The suit was filed in the Southern District of New York an Amazon has yet to publicly respond.

The Sexist Double Standard of Serena Williams’ Penalty

in Celebrities by

Serena Williams is a force to be reckoned with. The tennis phenom has been breaking records and taking the tennis world by force. Her name has filled newspaper headlines for years but this time the headlines are maligning her most recent actions. Actions that led to a $17,000 fine from her most recent loss at the U.S. Open. Her actions were described as a “temper tantrum”and “a meltdown”. She was mocked and taunted in the media. But was she talked about in these terms because she actually deserved it or was it because she was a woman?

The women’s final ended in with a emotional ending for both Williams and her opponent, Naomi Osaka. Williams got into a dispute with the umpire over scoring penalties. She received a verbal warning about receiving coaching on the sidelines. William challenged that call. She then broke her racket in frustration over losing a gamed she was penalized another point. Williams called him a “thief” and she was penalized an entire game for verbal abuse.

Both during and after the match, Williams called out the umpire’s behavior as a double standard. She pointed out men tennis players have been allowed to get away with behavior far worse than what she displayed during her match and she has had people come to her defense to back up her opinion. People like tennis legend Billie Jean King, have come come to Williams defense. She articulated that she firmly believed that if Williams was a man, she would not have been penalized. She had this to say,

“[F]or [Williams], and for many other women who have experienced an abuse of power at their workplaces, there was more at stake.

Did Ramos treat Williams differently than male players have been treated? I think he did. Women are treated differently in most arenas of life. This is especially true for women of color. And what played out on the court yesterday happens far too often. It happens in sports, in the office and in public service. Ultimately, a woman was penalized for standing up for herself. A woman faced down sexism, and the match went on.”

But the humiliation of Williams didn’t stop with her being described as a temper tantrum toddler in the media, the ultimate insult was when an Australian newspaper printed a cartoon of Williams as a racist trope designed to undercut her as a woman, an athlete and an African American. A recent Vox article by Michelle Garcia, pointed out the Williams has been a constant target of these types of attacks. The article states that the, “cartoon is a literal illustration of the way society is quick to degrade women — and black women in particular — when they don’t fall in line with the ways women are “supposed” to act. Not only is Williams depicted as a petulant toddler for having spoken up about what she felt was a sexist call, but also as a hulking, animal-like brute.”

What Serena William’s has experienced is downright wrong. There are many examples of men, like John McEnroe, throwing epic temper tantrums and not getting penalized. The hypocrisy is rampant and unfortunately Williams has been the target over and over again.

Regardless of her deserving or not deserving the penalties, the media depiction and portrayal of Williams has been disgusting. These consistent sexist and racist attacks are becoming tiresome and frankly embarrassing. It’s time to move on. Serena William is and will continue to be an amazing athlete. It’s time to treat her that way.
