    At least Bentley seems to be doing well despite Ryan’s appearance. I’ll give Maci and his grandparents credit for that. As far as Yolanda I think she was just suffering from silicon poisoning from the leaked breast implant. She has been healthier ever since she had those implants removed.

    The biggest scandal to me was the allegation of David beating Shannon. Never in a million years would I suspect David being abusive. He acted so meek under Shannon’s lunacy. This tragedy proves you never know what’s going on in people’s lives behind closed doors and OFF CAMERA.

      ITA, that one was a head scratcher. My first thought was it was blown out of proportion, but an actual arrest (not to mention hefty bail bond) spoke volumes.

      • This pic pf Shannon cracks me up every time. LMAO!!!!

        • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

          I thought one more time (for the road:-)

    • Also, never judge a book by it’s cover. People are never who they appear to be.

      • Marsbars09

        So true.

    • Authentic

      While I did enjoy the Luanne drama I agree with you. David/Shannon should be #1. Beating your wife? He’ll naw!! She should have shot his azz!! And something about his actions today ain’t right! Just a sneaky squirrel look. Maybe he’s always been worried his arrest would be released. I don’t trust him. That is all.

    Happy New Year everybody!
    Has anybody heard from Doc? It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a post from her.

    • Why is this happening to us?

      I think I spoke to her on or around Christmas. She’s not around too much these days, but she pops on every now and again.

      • Marsbars09

        Thanks for letting me know. Have you heard from T-Lily?

        • Why is this happening to us?

          No, I haven’t! I haven’t seen her around in ages.

          • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

            It’s always so concerning when we see our online friends just vanish (especially “regulars”). It makes me wonder what happened in their lives; in fact, it’s not unreasonable to think the worst:-(

          • Hey Bravo Mike…….this is so true. You can’t help but be concerned.

        • T-Lily is doing well now but was dealing with some health issues. I’ll let her know you asked about her.

          • Marsbars09

            I’m sorry to hear that. Tell her happy new year and that I hope to hear from her soon.

    • Happy New Years my dear friend! Girl, I am recovering from a hang over. Hope you had a pleasant NYE. Miss you too.

      • Marsbars09

        Did you drink too much wine? LOL! I’m glad to know you’re OK.

  • Awesome list Beach! So many scandals in 2016….what an unbelievable year.

  • Vogue

    Yolanda hasn’t post a sick selfie since aug. I’m guessing she magically is healed since the divorce is finalized and she managed to broke the prenup with her illness and cash in.
