After a diagnosis of “severe” Lyme disease, Avril Lavigne was left bedridden for 5 months. And now the singer is finally speaking out. “I had no idea a bug bite could do this,” says Lavigne in an interview with PEOPLE. Though she’d been feeling lethargic for months, it started to go way south at her 30th birthday last October. “I could barely eat, and when we went to the pool, I had to leave and go lie in bed,” she said. Welcome back. And glad to hear there were no televised slaps like on the Real World: Seattle back in 1907:

The mystery behind Rob Kardashian’s recent antagonistic Instagram post - the one calling Kim “the bitch from Gone Girl” - may have just been solved. In a clip from an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians Kris, distressed, is trying to figure out how to help her son. Kim, far less distressed says “Everyone licks Rob’s ass and does whatever he says. And it’s just at some point, you just have to give it up!”

Porsche is publicly washing its hands of any fault in the death of Paul Walker—The actor was driving the German automobile at the time of his death in 2013. Instead, the company placed blame on the driver, Roger Rodas. “Roger Rodas’ death, and all other injuries or damages claimed, were the result of Roger Rodas’ own comparative fault.” Harsh.

Well, I’m neutral on Avril as far as music or literally anything else goes, but lyme disease is no joke and can really make you very sick, including keeping you from walking and so on. For some, it invades so many cells that you simply can’t shake it off, and the antibiotics don’t really get rid of it fully. You can end up in a wheelchair permanently. I mean, she could be pretending it’s lyme disease when it’s something else, something salaciously drug-worthy, but I feel kind of negatively about meanness for the sake of meanness, when someone might be sick. Irene, for example, wasn’t the queen of stability, but I have noticed her roommates weren’t exactly the prince and princesses of compassion either. I haven’t dealt with a chronic illness so I’m not really sure anyone who hasn’t should be judging anyone who has.
