Is Jack the father of Mel’s baby on Virgin River? We finally have an answer



Warning: This post contains spoilers for Season Four of “Virgin River.”

The fourth season of “Virgin River,” which dropped on Netflix on July 20, answers many long-awaited questions — including whether Jack (Martin Henderson) is the father of Mel’s (Alexandra Breckenridge) baby, or whether Mark (Daniel Gillies), Mel’s deceased husband, is.

After watching the Season Three finale of “Virgin River,” there’s a good chance you wanted to throw your computer (or TV, or phone, or however you watched the show) across the room.

Why? Because finally, just when Jack and Mel seemed to be in a good place as a couple they were handed yet another “Virgin River”-worthy twist.

Jack was about to propose when Mel revealed that she was pregnant — and he might not be the father. How, you ask, is that possible? Thank modern medicine.

Recapping Mel and Jack’s relationship, up until now

Let’s catch up. Mel, a nurse practitioner, moved to the small California town with the intention of recuperation. She recently suffered the loss of her husband, Mark, who died in a car accident, and a miscarriage.

Not a single day into her relocation, she met Jack (Martin Henderson), a Marine veteran and bar owner. They had an undeniable connection — and he also had a girlfriend.

From their, Mel and Jack’s relationship has a few on-again, off-again patches, made more complicated by the fact that Charmaine (Lauren Hammerlsley), Jack’s ex, is pregnant with his twins.

Mel and Jack break up in Season Three because they have different ideas for the future: Mel wants a child; Jack says he’s overwhelmed by the idea of having three children and running a business.

Mel returns to Los Angeles and decides to approach motherhood in a different way. She returns to the clinic where she and Mark had been undergoing IVF and requests to use the last two embryos.

Not long after, she returns to Virgin River and gets back together with Jack. These events, which happened in close succession, lead Mel (and, clearly, all of us) to wonder: Who is the baby’s father?

Who is the father of Mel’s baby? Tell us!

We know, right? The suspense. So: In the finale of Season Four of “Virgin River,” Mel gets paperwork back with information about the child she’s carrying — including the identity of the father.

Mel, at first, is not keen on opening the paperwork. She says she doesn’t need to know. Jack, on the other hand, wants to know. Before opening the email, they have a grounding conversation in which they affirm the contents of the email don’t matter: They’re in this together.

Jack, like many of us “Virgin River” fans, can’t decipher the “medical-ese.” Here, Mel’s medical degree comes in handy for the nth time.

Drumroll, please: Jack is the child’s father — and they’re having a girl. Jack’s reaction? “Oh, holy crap. We’re having a little girl? I’m so happy right now.”

Fans were happy, too.

But about Charmaine’s twins…

Until now, Jack had been under the impression that he the was the father of Charmaine’s twin sons. (We don’t know how time works in “Virgin River,” but they haven’t been born yet.)

At the end of the season, Charmaine appears at Mel’s house in dire straits. She’s having a panic attack and is struggling, believing she’s going to lose her babies.

While she doesn’t explain how she got into this position, it may have to do with her husband, Todd (Patrick Sabongui), whom she married after three weeks. Todd appears to be controlling, forcing them to move to Eureka, Calif. without Charmaine’s approval. Jack doesn’t hide his distaste for Todd, who displays hallmarks of emotionally abusive relationships like love bombing and gaslighting in his treatment of Charmaine.

“This is karma. I’m being punished. It’s because I lied,” Charmaine says, before revealed that Jack is not the father, without saying who is.

But who is the father of Charmaine’s twins?

Not all fans were surprised by this reveal: Jack not being the father of Charmaine’s twins was long a theory.

But who is? Is it Todd, her husband? Is it one of the other men on the show, or a stranger? Did she, like Mel, get a round of IVF?

Season Four cuts to black, leaving us with another paternity question to uncover in Season Five. Let’s hope Charmaine gets the care she needs in the season to come.

Jon Batiste leaving ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’



Academy- and Grammy Award-winning artist Jon Batiste is leaving “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” after seven seasons, Colbert announced Thursday night on the show. He’s exiting to “pursue personal and professional interests.” Louis Cato, who has served as interim bandleader this summer, will take over on a permanent basis — and Colbert’s band, which previously had been called “Stay Human” under Batiste’s direction, will be renamed “The Late Show Band.”

Cato will take over permanently when the show returns for its eighth season on Tuesday, Sept. 6.

“Louis has done a great job this summer, and he is very humble, so he won’t say this. But I will. He’s a musical genius,” Colbert said. “He can play basically every instrument over there. Give him an afternoon, he’ll learn how to play Mozart on a shoehorn.”

Cato has been with “The Late Show” since its relaunch under Colbert. The revised band will be include Joe Saylor, who has performed alongside Louis since the show’s inception, and longtime house band members Louis Fouché, Jon Lampley, Endea Owens and Nêgah Santos.

“It has been one of the great honors of my life to work on this show, alongside some of the most talented musicians and creatives I know,” said Cato. “Watching and learning from both Jon and Stephen for these past seven years, I’m genuinely excited to continue the tradition of excellence they’ve established.”

Batiste won five Grammys earlier this year, out of a whopping 11 nominations, with big wins including album of the year. That came after Batiste won an Oscar in 2021 for original score as part of the trio of composers behind Disney-Pixar’s “Soul.”

“We’ve been so lucky to have a front row seat to Jon’s incredible talent for the past seven years,” Colbert said of Batiste. “And will we miss him here? ‘Yeaaa!’ But we’re happy for you, Jon, and I can’t wait to have you back on as guest with your next hit record.”

Cato, a Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter, has worked with artists including Beyonce, Mariah Carey, John Legend, Talib Kweli, Snarky Puppy, David Sanborn, George Duke, Bobby McFerrin, Marcus Miller, John Scofield and A Tribe Called Quest. Cato released his first solo record, “Starting Now,” in 2016, and he is in post-production on his newest album, “Reflections,” due out later this year. He is repped by manager and creative producer Sam Goldberg and Jake Levy at Levy Law PLLC.

Jay Cutler Addresses His Divorce from Kristin Cavallari, Asserts He Never Cheated



Jay Cutler is getting candid about his divorce from Kristin Cavallari. During a recent appearance on the Sofia with an F podcast, Cutler addressed their split and cleared up rumors that he cheated on the reality TV star.

“I’ve got 3 kids, so like at some point they’re going to, they’re gonna read stuff, they’re gonna ask questions, so I’ve kind of steered clear of all of that,” Cutler said when asked about his ex-wife’s recent claims regarding their “toxic” marriage.

“If she wants to say stuff, she can say stuff. I’m not going to go down that road about her. I mean, she’s still the mother of the kids, and we had three kids together and we were together for I don’t know how many years, eight. We were married for seven, I think together for nine to ten, and if that’s the way she feels — I mean, it’s changed over the course of two and half years, but I also don’t understand, it’s two and half years,” he continued. 

While Cutler said he understands how Cavallari’s feelings have changed over time, he doesn’t totally agree with airing out their dirty laundry to the public.

“Why are we having these conversations in public? I mean, why are we doing this?” he continued. It’s comical. It doesn’t make sense. No, I don’t care what changed. What’s happened is what happened, and now we have to have this conversation now and it’s like, ‘Come on man, let’s just, we’re done here.'”

The former NFL star also addressed rumors that he cheated as the cause for their relationship’s demise, and claims that their E! reality series, Very Cavallari, played a part in their downfall.

“Nope, never cheated,” Cutler maintained. “I guess she fell out of love, or it was toxic, I mean, depends on the day I guess. I’m not for sure what she said, and I frankly don’t care what she said. Like I said, it’s been 2 and half years, we’re done here. And I’m sure there will be a rebuttal to this, so stay tuned for that one.”

Cavallari and Cutler wed in 2013 after a whirlwind courtship that started when Uncommon James founder was 23. After 10 years together, three kids and seven years of marriage, they made the decision to separate in 2020. 

Cutler’s comments about their divorce come after Cavallari appeared on the Call Her Daddy podcast where she and host Alex Cooper discussed her highly publicized separation from Cutler. Like the revered quarterback, Cavallari maintained that their kids –Camden, Jaxon and Saylor — are the reason she won’t publicly acknowledge exactly what went wrong in their marriage. 

“Because I have three kids with him, I’m very careful about what I say,” she admitted. “If you and I didn’t have microphones in front of us, I’d f**king tell you, but that’s their dad and my oldest googles us now, and I just want to be very careful. My mom never said anything bad about my dad growing up and I really respected that, and I want to be that kind of mom.”

Even still, while Cavallari called the relationship “toxic,” she maintained that “nothing major” happened to end their time together.

“Nothing major happened at the end,” Cavallari insisted. “I remember always asking my mom, ‘But how am I going to know?’ and she would just be like, ‘You’ll just know.’ And I did, I just kinda knew. It’s the scariest thing, it’s also the saddest thing. I mean, it’s so many emotions but it can also be the best thing.” 

“I think with any relationship, you just have to realize what are deal breakers for you. What’s important to you and what’s not?” she added. “I was really unhappy, I mean, and that was the bottom line. I was in an unhealthy relationship and so that, to me, is not worth it. Also, I didn’t want my kids thinking that was normal and I wanted them to see me happy and see me eventually, not right now, but eventually see me with someone who really respects me and treats me the way I need to be treated.”

Megan Thee Stallion Reacted To A Viral Video Of Dwayne Johnson Saying He Wants To Be Her Pet



It all started when Dwayne was asked in an interview for the movie DC League of Super-Pets which celebrity he’d like to be a pet to — and he (seemingly without hesitation) named Megan.

“We don’t have to talk about that, OK?” he added when asked for clarification.

The video subsequently went pretty darn viral:
