Rebeccah Beushausen, tragedy addict, is back with a new tragic baby story. You may remember Rebeccah from the “Little One April” scam she ran back in 2009, when she falsely claimed she was pregnant with a doomed baby. She became the darling of the pro-life community for her refusal to terminate due to her faith in Jesus or something until she was exposed as a scam and disappeared from the internet.
Well apparently Rebeccah, now known as Beccah Tabbert, gave birth to a daughter in March. The baby was evidently premature and whisked away to the NICU as Beccah and husband David’s church sent prayers and hope. She went home three and a half weeks later, but as David says on their fundraiser page:
…her time at home was short-lived… Just a few weeks after her initial discharge from the NICU, Layla was re-admitted to the hospital; this time she was admitted to a speciality, Children’s Hospital just outside of Chicago. This admission was due to poor weight gain, seizing, unexplained (skin) color changes and feeding concerns.
Baby Layla was started on a feeding tube and sent home after a week, but once again encountered medical issues once she left the hospital:
Just two days after her release, she was re-admitted to the same Children’s Hospital. During this subsequent stay, Layla underwent extensive testing to determine what may have caused her from seizing and becoming discolored a few days prior. Despite a great deal of tests, no concrete answers were found.
Baby Layla went home once again, only to be admitted to the ER a few days later with breathing issues and vomiting. As of June 17th she had been in the hospital for 11 days – somehow magically gaining weight steadily and with no other mention of seizures or vomiting. While no one wants to rush to judgment, some folks around the internet are asking if Beccah’s past should lead to a few more questions – especially in light of this recent story.
Cecily Kellogg, former addict slash drunk, and her ‘poet’ husband had to go through a sobriety checkpoint Friday evening. Rather than considering how many lives such checkpoints can save, Cecily posted the location on instagram (in case anyone wanted to avoid it) and then proceeded to complain on facebook about – prepare for a lulz attack – her privacy:
Her husband Charlie joined in the affray by also complaining about the horrible experience:
1 hr · Philadelphia, PA ·
Encountered a sobriety checkpoint on the way back from dinner. We had Tori and one of her friends along. After sitting in traffic, we were told to pull up to “Station One” where a grinning cop leaned in to smell Cecily’s breath while his partner (a shorter, meaner Curly Howard) peered in the passenger window, I assume to look for empty bottles. Needless to say, we passed, but but I’m glad the police don’t conduct proctology checkpoints. #WTF #creepy #predatory #PoliceState
I just…I can’t. God forbid the O’Hats be kept from their tv and laptops just so Big Brother can try to prevent someone being killed by a drunk driver.
In case you’re wondering, that “#ad” hastag denotes exactly what you think it does – Clare used this picture as an instagram ad.
So in case finding a good nanny wasn’t hard enough, I guess now there’s another thing for parents to worry about when hiring childcare – whether their kids will be plastered all over the internet without parental knowledge as part of some sponsor campaign.
Taza, quickly becoming Dooce with her newer, non-revealing content, husband who appears to have ended his own career to ride his wife’s coattails, and sponsored posts, is taking yet another step towards Doocedom – she and her stay at home husband are hiring an assistant.
The prudent thing to do when you are internet semi-famous and have two small children would be to contact a reputable agency (or have your management agency do it for you) and hire a professional who will have a grip of NDA experience and a background check. But hey, why do that when you can put it up on instagram and watch as all your rabid fancujos crap themselves with glee and beg to be your nanny/bff?
The resulting response was both hilariously sad and kind of scary. Fangirls offered to move from other countries in order to work for the Derps, and one said it’s “my Segway into friendship!”
It really seems unsafe to employ some crazed fangirl who probably cares nothing about the actual job, and just has dreams of becoming Auntie Fangirl to your kids and The Famous Taza’s BFF4LYFE. Maybe this is how the kids are hiring these days, but I’m pretty sure that’s how the movie “Selena” started.
Lacey Spears, the mommy blogger who was so “desperate for attention” that she allegedly slowly poisoned her son with sodium, has been indicted on charges of depraved murder and manslaughter for the death of 5 year old Garnett-Paul Spears.
Prosecutors say after searching the internet about the effects of sodium overdoses, Spears fed her son large amounts of salt “once before his seizures and again when his sodium spiked”. According to the Washington Post, investigators “suspect his medical abuse went back much further — fueled by the social media attention she gained on Facebook, Twitter and blogs”.
Spears has pleaded not guilty.
I’ve decided to go for the ultimate in home security systems: a dog. These attacks have GOT to stop. Now on my agenda? Finding a crate for a large dog. Also: not dying, because obviously.
She goes on to ask ‘The Facebook’ where she can find an affordable dog crate before responding to other comments asking “What happened to the go fund me for you. Where are your cameras?”, “What happened to the cameras that were supposed to be put up in your home?”, and “Where is the money from go fund me?” by saying she doesn’t have the GoFundMe money yet because she has to first get a mailbox key from the post office (wtf?).
Then this evening Becky announced she had been fired today and seemingly blamed police involvement, saying “apparently being good enough wasn’t good enough during this bullshit time. The lady detective called my boss.”
I do not even understand what is going on anymore with this person.
If you’ve ever wanted to know how to make a super easy donut cake, The Glitter Guide has your answer. With instructions such as get 24 glazed donuts, place on a tray, and “Repeat until you’ve used all the donuts”, this is surely worth immediately jotting down on a notecard and placing in your Pinstagram worthy recipe box right behind ‘Late Night Bacon’.
