2017 is a wild ride. The perfidious predators in Hollywood are getting exposed, but we all live in perpetual anxiety that the world will be destroyed because of an impulsive lunatic. That's ... all kind of depressing.
But Kylie Jenner's pregnancy, bizarre and unexpected though it may be, is a welcome distraction.
For us. Apparently, Kylie's finally reached the point where the realities of her condition are starting to freak her out.
Though Kylie and her family are still, for reasons unknown and perhaps beyond the comprehension of us mere mortals, refusing to actually acknowledge it ...
The whole world knows that Kylie is pregnant.
We can only assume that her comical efforts to hide her baby bump are a prelude to some "big reveal" that Kris Jenner dreamed up.
(That woman really knows how to turn any unfortunate situation into a huge source of success; in another life, Kris Jenner might have conquered the world by now)
Of course, some are paranoid that Kylie Jenner is faking her pregnancy. Her motives for that would be unclear. Maybe she's trolling fans or trying to get revenge against the people who report on her life by stringing them along.
That said, people who've spotted Kylie Jenner say that she looks pregnant. As well she ought to -- she's reportedly due in just a few months.
And it looks like that looming due date, and the changes to her body, are finally getting to Kylie.
Remember, she's only 20, and she got pregnant at 19 with a rebound guy she'd been seeing for maybe a month.
There's a lot to freak out about.
A source tells RadarOnline that Kylie Jenner is over her pregnancy's honeymoon phase.
"Honestly, Kylie is just an emotional wreck right now."
Well, that sure isn't mincing any words, is it?
"She does not know what to do or [whom] to trust, and she is just so vulnerable right now."
Is the issue about worrying that a "friend" will snap a photo of her baby bump? that could keep her in isolation.
Or maybe Kylie's having trouble confiding her feelings in people. That could be worse, and much more isolating.
"Her age is really starting to show."
You know, it's funny -- usually, when we talk about someone's age showing, we talk about a teacher talking about how handsome Errol Flynn was we talk about someone not knowing who Ariana Grande is.
In this case, it's not old age that's allegedly showing -- it's Kylie's youth and immaturity.
Sure, people have said "oh, she'll make a great mom" and praised Kylie for being mature or whatever ... but that's just something that people say.
According to that same source, Kylie's feeling scared at the moment.
"She does not know how to be an adult, let alone be a mother."
Remember, Kylie is set to give birth well before she's old enough to legally drink alcohol in the US.
Yeah, alcohol and pregnancy don't mix, but the point is that Kylie is really young for someone who's becoming a mother. And she's basically never had responsibilities in her life aside from appearing on a reality series.
Other women become moms at her age, but most of those other women have had real jobs before and probably have more realistic ideas of what parenting entails.
But RadarOnline's source says that Kylie is feeling isolated.
"She’s feeling so alone!"
Now, all of that sounds believable.
But here's where it starts to sounds like RadarOnline's source is reporting from a parallel universe where everything is all topsy-turvy:
"Kylie is trying to rely on Kris, but Kris has made it clear she simply does not have the time to deal with it."
That ... doesn't sound like the Kris Jenner whom we have all come to know and love (and fear).
Kris Jenner ignoring her youngest daughter doesn't sound plausible. Kris Jenner ignoring her pregnant daughter sounds like someone's fever-dream.
There's no way that Kris Jenner is unwilling to help Kylie through her pregnancy and her transition into motherhood.
But that doesn't preclude Kylie from feeling like Kris doesn't care. Feelings, strange as this may sound, are sometimes less than rational.
Kylie's dealing with more right now than she's ever dealt with before.
She has a huge support network available to her; we just hope that she takes advantage of it.
