Oscar De La Renta Dies; Legendary Fashion Designer Was 82

Iconic fashion designer Oscar De La Renta has passed away at the age of 82.

Over the course of his more than 50 year career, De La Renta designed clothing for some of the world’s most famous women. Most recently, he designed Amal Alamuddin’s wedding dress

Born in 1932 in the Dominican Republic, De La Renta first made a name for himself in the US by designing dresses for Jacqueline Kennedy.

In the decades that followed, first ladies Betty Ford, Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton, and Laura Bush frequently wore designs by De La Renta.

De La Renta was diagnosed with cancer in 2006, but appeared to be in good health in recent months.

The news of De La Renta’s death broke just minutes ago, but the most famous names in the world of fashion are already expressing their grief and condolences on social media.

Appearing at this year’s CFDA awards, De La Renta spoke of his recent health problems, saying, “Yes, I had cancer. Right now I am totally clean. The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die.”

“We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is that you appreciate every single day of life.”

De La Renta leaves behind a wife, a son, and several step-children.

Lena Dunham On Losing Her Virginity And Not Getting Her 90210 Moment

lenadunham3

Lena Dunham stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show today to promote her new biography “Not That Kind of Girl.”  The actress and author shared a few snippets from her book, including bits about celibacy and losing her viriginity in college being a little bit of a let down!

The “Girls” star decided at age 9 that she wanted to be celibate until after high school.  She wrote her promise to herself on a piece of paper and ate it.  “Because that’s how I thought you officially sealed contracts.  I thought that’s basically what adults did if they were buying real estate, getting a divorce, you eat the paper.” 
Lena then thought her will power wouldn’t be that strong and wrote up a contract and asked her mom to sign it.  Her mom refused, saying that Lena might not be able to stick to that kind of a promise and didn’t want her to be disappointed in herself.  “My mom was like ‘you just never know what’s gonna happen. I don’t want you to sign a contract you can’t keep.   So, I’m not gonna sign the contract.’ I think it was very enlightened of her.  And it turns out I didn’t need a contract.”

Lena kept her virginity until college and shared that she had a HARD TIME finding someone to help her lose it when she finally decided she was ready.  “I think I thought that it was gonna be pretty easy to find a guy who was interested in divesting me of this. It turned out to be a real wild goose chase.”   She shares the story of her attempts to lose it in her book.

Lena confesses that she had high hopes for the big event, but it was NOTHING like she saw on TV.  “And when it finally happened, I was comparing it to 90210 David and Donna.  Flower petals, candles.  I did not have my Donna and David moment.”  She laughed, “I remember thinking I’d wake up and look in the mirror and have these puffy lips and this really long hair.  I thought there was going to be some magical transformation.”

Have you picked up a copy of Lena’s new book yet?  Are you planning to check it out?

Kris Jenner Confesses: I Don’t Know If Bruce is Getting a Sex Change!

This morning, Kris Jenner spoke about Bruce Jenner sex change rumors on the Today show.

As always, Kris denied that Bruce is transitioning into presenting as a woman and dismissed the speculation as “silly.”

Later in the day, however, when asked about Bruce’s gender identity by Entertainment Tonight’s Nancy O’Dell, Kris seemed much less certain (and far more evasive) in her response:

“I don’t know what he’s going through right now,” Kris answered vaguely. “I think he’s just very happy and I think every time he makes a change in his life whether it’s emotional or physical or whatever he’s doing, somebody’s going to comment.”

Reports that Bruce is planning a sex change have been circulating for years, but a number of factors have led to increased speculation in recent months.

Some sources indicated that Kris Jenner filed for divorce after Bruce revealed that he had begun hormone therapy.

Along with the divorce, changes in Jenner’s appearance in recent weeks have led many to assume that the legendary Olympian has begun his long-anticipated transition.

Bruce in his hey day. He certainly has changed a lot since then.

Kris’ non-committal response to questions about Bruce will likely be taken as a confirmation that Bruce plans to begin presenting as a female in the near future.

It’s important to note, however, that Kris simply said she doesn’t know what’s going on with Bruce these days, which makes sense as their divorce is rumored to be growing increasingly bitter.

Sources state that Bruce is dating Rhonda Kamihira –  one of Kris’ closest friends. Could Kris be attempting to subtly slander Bruce, or is she simply conceding that she has little contact with her ex these days?

Either way, Bruce will likely be under more scrutiny than ever in the coming days.

How long is Bruce Jenner’s hair these days? He can easily wear is in a ponytail.

Sadie Robertson: My Dad Approves Dancing With the Stars Costumes!

Dancing With the Stars cast member Sadie Robertson might not be quite as conservative as, say, Jill and Jessa Duggar, but there are some similarities for sure.

Her father, Duck Dynasty star and executive producer Willie Robertson, gives the final approval to all of the 17-year-old’s Dancing With the Stars costumes!

So far, Boss Hog hasn’t had any problems with Sadie’s looks, including a jungle-inspired feathered frock, a sophisticated gown and a fun fringed number last week.

Will her Dancing With the Stars Season 19 Episode 8 look change that trend this evening? We’re not sure, but it sounds like she’s going to be stunning.

“I feel like a ballerina in it,” Sadie says. “It’s so beautiful. I love it.”

Designed by costume designer Daniela Gschwendtner, Sadie will wear the dress during her Rumba to “Diamonds” by Rihanna with partner Mark Ballas.

Sounds like that could be a mildly sensual number … hmm.

We’ll have to see what she wears and if Willie approves, and how the newest member of the judges’ table feels about Sadie’s routine with Mark Ballas.

Pitbull will be on the panel as the week’s guest judge, filling in for Len Goodman, as well as the musical act, as he’s set to perform his new  single “Fireball.”

Also guesting this week is Leah Remini, who will fill in as co-host for Erin Andrews, while she covers the World Series as Fox’s MLB sideline reporter.

Jase Robertson: No Beard!


Jase Robertson of Duck Dynasty with no beard. That was a long time ago. With Jase is his wife Missy.

As for Sadie’s other show, Duck Dynasty Season 7 premieres November 19. Will Robertson still be competing for the Mirror Ball title on ABC by then?

The way she’s looked so far, don’t count her out!

One contestant will be ousted on DWTS tonight, and we would be extremely surprised if it were her – or if she didn’t survive until at least the top four.

Tori Spelling: Hospitalized, Quarantined Due to Mysterious Illness

Tori Spelling was rushed to an LA hospital over the weekend after displaying a wide array of worrisome symptoms.

Sources say Spelling was coughing uncontrollably and having difficulty breathing. She was reportedly running a high fever which caused hospital staff to quarantine the reality star.

As troubling as all that sounds, there are two important facts that make Tori’s make condition somewhat less dire:

1. Despite rumors to the contrary Tori is not pregnant, and 2. Tori does not have Ebola, which is something that her publicist actually felt the need to mention. 

Obviously, Tori is very sick, but insiders say it’s most likely a bad case of the flu. She’s expected to make a full recovery within the next week, and she was quarantined merely out of an “abundance of caution.”

Most likely, Tori will be released from the hospital later today, and she’ll probably have to respond to accusations that she made the whole thing up to drum up ratings for her reality show.

After all, there’s evidence to suggest Tori faked Dean McDermott’s affair with Emily Goodhand just to make her life more compelling to television audiences.

Also, back in April, Tori was accused of faking a hospital stay for the sake of her Lifetime series. Even so, we’re gonna give her the benefit of the doubt and assume that this time around she’s legitimately ill. 

In any event, we sincerely hope she’s not pretending, because faking a viral infection at a time when millions of Americans are terrified of an epidemic would be a new low that we never thought Tori capable of.

Tori and Dean share a touching moment. So much to say about these two.

Taylor Swift Lashes Out Against "Sexist" Critics

Though she hasn’t yet confirmed it publicly, it’s pretty clear that Taylor Swift’s “Out of the Woods” is about Harry Styles.

Recently, Taylor spoke about her breakup with Harry during an exclusive listening party with a group of fans, and Swfity diehards have parsed the lyrics and found numerous clues that the singer had Styles on the mind when she wrote the song.

Taylor Swift: Hot in NYC


Taylor looked better than ever as she stepped out in Manhattan today. NYC seems to agree with her!

Obviously, there’s nothing new or unusual about Taylor writing about ex-boyfriends and broken hearts. After all, intimate breakup ballads have been her bread and butter ever since her first single hit the airwaves back in 2006.

Yes, Taylor has used her love life as inspiration throughout her career and it’s a practice that’s often made her the butt of jokes. This time around, however, Swift isn’t taking the criticism lying down.

Last week, British pop star and television personality Olly Murs, offered the following take on Taylor’s latest single:

“Come on, let it go. Write something new that isn’t about Harry. Bless him, it’s been like two years and he’s still getting lashed out, isn’t he?”

Today, Taylor shot back with a biting takedown of Murs’ critique:

“I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says that about Bruno Mars. They’re writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love life and no one raises a red flag there.”

Murs says he’s reached out to Swift and apologized and there’s no bad blood between them.

Looks like the days of the shrinking violet Taylor are over. Anyone who saw Swift’s reaction to John Cleese dissing her cat knows that this is not a girl to be messed with.

She's Never Been in Love!


Yes, the woman who’s as famous for her dating life as for her music says that when she looks back on her relationships, she realizes none of them were “real love.”

Nicholas Brendon Busted For Destruction of Property, Resisting Arrest After Drunken Disturbance

Actor Nicholas Brendon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer was detained in Boise, Idaho, Friday night on suspicion of damaging property and resisting arrest.

The 43-year-old blamed his outburst on a combination of prescription medication and alcohol and says he is very sorry for “unacceptable” behavior like this.

Nicholas Brendon Mug Shot

In town for Tree City Comic Con, he spent several hours in jail after a hotel lobby altercation in which he exhibited “signs of intoxication,” per police.

Brendon “repeatedly refused officers’ commands to stay seated as officers tried to speak with witnesses” and also allegedly broke a decorative dish.

He was then booked into a local jail on criminal charges of malicious injury to property and resisting or obstructing officers, which are both misdemeanors.

He was later released on $600 bond the following day after which he promptly addressed the situation. “I apologize,” the actor began in a statement.

“Usually those words end a message like this but I am beginning with them to emphasize how much I regret disappointing my family, my fans, and myself.” 

“I can offer an explanation but I make no excuse for my unacceptable behavior.”

Waka Flocka Flame


Waka Flocka Flame was arrested at the Atlanta airport for packing heat. That’ll do it every time.

“For the past 5 days, I have been taking prescription pain medication to help me manage a cyst behind my knee cap, which is scheduled for corrective surgery on Monday.”

“I made the poor decision to mix this prescribed medication with alcohol. The result was embarrassing and unacceptable,” he confessed in the statement.

“I intend to seek appropriate treatment and therapy for my medical ailments as well as my emotional demons,” he said. “Again:  I apologize.”

“Those two small words don’t begin to express my regrets,” the troubled star acknowledged, “but they do mark the beginning of my recovery.”

“During this difficult time, I appreciate understanding as I pursue rehabilitation … and I value support as I earn redemption with my family, friends, and fans.”

Brendon’s arrest comes just one week after he tied the knot with girlfriend Moonda Tee in Las Vegas. Here’s wishing him a full and fast recovery.

Justin Bieber looks pretty darn happy here in his mug shot, doesn’t he? Perhaps that’s because he is under the influence of… something.

Khloe Kardashian Just Wants "Some Head," Rocks Hilarious Shirt on Instagram

Khloe Kardashian has been so unlucky in love the past couple years that you might start to think that she’s a demanding, high-maintenance girlfriend. Judging from her latest selfie, however, Khloe’s relationship goals are pretty simple. 

Khloe Kardashian Wants Head

Yes in the midst of all the relationship drama and questions about who Khloe’s real father is, the reality star is keeping it simple. She just wants some head in a comfortable bed. Is that too much to ask?

Obviously, this is a very different side of Khloe than the one we saw last week on Instagram. But while photos of Khloe playing with North West may have gotten more likes, we feel like this pic is a better representation of KK’s personality.

The shirt is a reference to Drake’s song “The Language,” but we get the feeling those words are also something of a personal motto for Khloe.

As is usually the case these days, she’s at the gym in this pic. We’re not sure how often she actually works out, but it seems like Khloe goes to the gym to pose for pics at least three to five times a week.

And they’re not always selfies! Sometimes Khloe has someone take pictures of her butt while she works out, which is really a service more gyms should offer, when you think about it. 

Personal trainers are great and all, but there’s no better motivation than taking a look at the view that everyone else sees from behind.

Grey’s Anatomy Sneak Peek: A Marriage in Crisis

If VH1 has taught us anything over the past few years, it’s that Couples Therapy rarely works.

But that won’t stop Arizona and Callie from giving it a shot on Grey’s Anatomy Season 11 Episode 5, an installment titled “Bend & Break” that will shine the spotlight directly on this very troubled twosome.

Arizona is angry because Callie makes all the decisions. She has a habit of making her wife feel selfish at all times.

Callie is angry because, among other reasons, Arizona slept with another woman. Was that also her fault, Callie asks?

Yeah. Like we said, this is a twosome in big trouble…

Is there any way Calzona survives the season? Heck, is there any way Calzona survives the hour?

It may be time for this couple to go their separate ways, as difficult as that will be for long-time viewers to see.

To be reminded of just how Callie and Arizona ended up on this seemingly doomed path, you can watch Grey’s Anatomy online. We make it very easy to do so:
