Kim Kardashian is still ‘waist training’ with a fancy corset: stupid or fine?

I'm really obsessed with waist training! Thank you @premadonna87 for my new waist shapers! #whatsawaist

A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

I could have sworn that I had already written about this mess, and as it turns out, I DID. Back in August, Kim Kardashian posted a “waist training” selfie featuring a fancy girdle, and here we go again. Kim posted the above photo yesterday. Hey, at least she’s not trying to convince us that she’s lost seven pounds like last time. Oh, and I guess this girdle is new? The girdle/corset from August was a What’s a Waist corset, retailing for $143. This new corset is… oh, it’s the same brand. But I guess this one is new.

I’ve heard of this before, obviously. Jessica Alba is also a fan of “waist training” and she’s said in the past that she wore a corset for months after she gave birth both times. I guess it’s a popular thing to do with moms, although Khloe Kardashian also “waist trains.” Critics insist that “waist training” is meaningless and your body will just return to its natural shape regardless of the time spent wearing a corset. Some critics even say it’s flat-out dangerous.

Meanwhile, this is my new favorite Kimye story:

He’s reportedly worth $130m. But Kanye West wasn’t in the mood to splurge for wife Kim Kardashian’s 34th birthday, which fell on October 21. According to Us Weekly, the 37-year-old rapper let the E! star choose whatever she wanted at low-priced clothing store The Gap. And he gave her two hours to do so.

‘He was like, “What do I get the girl that has so much?”‘ Kim told the weekly during her birthday party held at TAO in Las Vegas on Friday. The daughter of Kris Jenner added, ‘We bought five cream sweaters.’

[From The Daily Mail]

It sounds like something Gwyneth Paltrow would do. “Slum it” at The Gap for a peasant-y experience for one’s birthday! How quaint. How charming. Soon all of the upper-crust mothers will be doing the same thing. Hilariously, Kanye allegedly gave Kim a $100 maximum too. Actually, I bet they had a lot of fun doing that. Some of those sweaters and blouses at The Gap are decent.

Anne Hathaway in Wes Gordon at the UK ‘Interstellar’ premiere: matronly or lovely?


Here are some photos from last night’s Insterstellar premiere in London. It just occurred to me yesterday, as I was covering Anne Hathaway’s Telegraph interview, that some of these actors might be aiming for Oscar nominations. Annie clearly is. Jessica Chastain probably wouldn’t mind, but she’s not going to go all Hathaway for a nomination. And Matthew McConaughey? Alright alright alright.

As for the fashion, I’m trying to decide if the London styles are better or worse than the LA premiere looks. I kind of think London had the better style overall, but I still love to nitpick, so let’s get to it. Annie is wearing Wes Gordon with Charlotte Olympia platform heels. I feel like this is an Angelina Jolie-esque look, right? Angelina has been skewing more conservative lately, she loves a good sleeve and a boxy waist, and she loves dark metallics. If only this Wes Gordon dress was more sacky, then it would totally be a Jolie look. As it is… I kind of think this is too matronly on Annie. She’s only 31! Something nice: her makeup is much better here than at the LA premiere. And I like the emerald earrings (also a Jolie-esque touch). Also: Annie has a great mani, if you can make it out.



As for Chastain, her dress is Saint Laurent. I feel like she’s worn this dress or a version very close to it recently. Maybe at Cannes this year? I guess I’m remembering Chastain in that lovely violet Elie Saab in Cannes, although that look was WORLDS better than this Saint Laurent. Her boobs look weird in this gown and she’s carrying herself like she’s knocked up.


Matthew brought his wife Camila Alves, who rocked a hot white pantsuit with a built-in cape. I don’t have the ID on this. Maybe it’s Dolce & Gabbana (the McConaughey family wears a lot of D&G), but I doubt it. This is one of the best looks I’ve seen on Camila in a while. Usually her style is kind of… glossy beauty queen. Not on this carpet!

Kim Kardashian Kontinues "Waist Training," Being a Terrible Person

In a recent interview, Kim Kardashian said she deserves respect because she works very hard.

She then took to Instagram and took a picture of her minute body.

Kim Kardashian in Waist Training

“I’m really obsessed with waist training! Thank you @premadonna87 for my new waist shapers! #whatsawaist,” Kim captioned the picture, for which she was clearly paid a hefty sum.

This isn’t the first time Kardashian has acted like an atrocious role model for young fans around the globe.

Instead of passing along positive messages about self-confidence and body image, Kim Instagrammed an image of herself wearing a corset from What’s a Waist in August. It retails at $143.50.

That’s an impressive double from Kardashian: she is telling fans that they should both aim to be as thin as possible AND that they should shell out a lot of money (for a complete ridiculous item) in order to attain that goal.

Anyone else feel really, really sorry for North West?

Women’s Health Magazine asked Mary Jane Minkin – the clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale School of Medicine – about this absurd What a Waist corset and she replied:

“Once you take the garment off, your body will return to its usual shape. It’s also uncomfortable, restricts your movements, and if you wear it really tight, it can even make it difficult to breathe and theoretically could cause rib damage.”

But, hey… keep cashing those checks, Kim!

Kaley Cuoco Debuts Hollywood Walk of Fame Star on Instagram!

Sure, Kaley Cuoco just signed a $90 million contract to star in three more seasons of The Big Bang Theory, but the surest sign you’ve made it in Hollywood is…well, the surest is becoming fabulously wealthy, but a star on the Walk of Fame is pretty nice, too.

Yes, even Kim Kardashian couldn’t get a Walk of Fame star, so it’s not enough just to be famous. No, you have to be famous and…act on a sitcom or something. 

We kid, it’s an honor and as the most beloved star on TV’s must popular comedy, Kaley certainly deserves it. Plus it’s always a treat to see Ryan Sweeting force-smile his way through yet another event honoring his wife.

Just last week, Kaley was feted at an ASPCA event that paid tribute to work for animal rights’ charities. We’re sure it was nice to get the award and all, but the highlight of that night had to be Kaley twerking with Nikki Reed.

But while the dump trucks full of cash and philanthropy awards are certainly nice, getting a star on the Walk of Fame is probably something that Kaley has been dreaming about since she was a little girl, and we’d like to offer out sincere congrats.

It’s an honor to know that a century from now, drunk tourists will still be urinating on your name!

Khloe Kardashian and French Montana: Still BFFs!

When Khloe Kardashian and French Montana broke up last month it surprised literally no one.

They were an odd couple from the start and it was widely rumored that French cheated on Khloe with just about every woman he came in contact with while they were dating.

Khloe and French Photo

But while the relationship has been over for weeks, the reality TV version of Khloe and French won’t debut until next week when Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons hits the E! network. 

So, as further evidence that it’s really weird to live your life with a 10-week broadcast delay, Kourtney has been forced to talk about French while promoting her 117th E! reality series.

Instead of trash-talking the Q-list rapper like we had hoped, Khloe says she and French are totally still besties!

“I love memories,” Khloe says when asked about Montana. “I still talk to him. There’s no bad blood or anything.”

Discussing her feelings about French appearing on her new show, Khloe offered this surprising comment:

“I think it’s cool. I like that people get to see a part of our relationship. I don’t think it’s fair to judge people by appearance or what you think you know about them.”

She then went on to fondly reminisce about their trip to South Africa and gush about how French pushes her to do things she “probably wouldn’t do” on her own. Seriously.

So, who has “next week” in the “When will Khloe and French get back together?” pool? We’re guessing it’ll happen before then.

Really, Khloe Kardashian and French Montana?!? The couple poses here with a machine gun online.

Sugar Bear Thompson Won’t Fight For Custody of Honey Boo Boo… Under One Condition

Ever since the world first learned that June Shannon is dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, it’s been widely assumed that Shannon’s youngest daughter would be removed from her care one way or another.

Shannon is in danger of losing custody of her three youngest children.

But even if the current investigation by the state of Georgia finds that “Mama June” is a fit mother, surely Sugar Bear Thompson – father of 9-year-old Alana – will do everything in his power to gain full custody, right?

Mama June and Sugar Bear

Not necessarily. Sources close to Sugar Bear tell TMZ that as of right now, he has no plans to fight for custody of Alana (better known to fans as Honey Boo Boo).

Sugar Bear apparently believes he would not be able to provide a suitable home for Honey Boo Boo as he has been living with friends ever since he and Shannon broke up last month.

Insiders say Sugar Bear is pissed at June for exposing his daughter to the man who molested her sister, but he feels there’s little he can do about it at the moment.

He reportedly fears that if he convinces a judge that Honey Boo Boo isn’t safe at home and then he’s found to be an unfit father himself, then Alana might end up in state care.

However, sources say that if Shannon continues to bring McDaniel into her home, then Thompson will take his chances in court with the belief that any living situation would be better than allowing his daughter to share a roof with someone as dangerous as McDaniel.

Reality TV Family

This family is way more famous than you are. It’s just unclear why, exactly.

Benedict Cumberbatch: Sherlock has a sex drive, he just suppresses it for work


Sigh… such a magnificent otter. Okay, we have a few Cumbercrumbs today, mostly catch-up stuff from yesterday’s Cumberthon, with the Doctor Strange rumor and the release of Elle UK’s first excerpts. First of all, I think Elle UK sent out a press release with some quotes and a summary, because a lot of different outlets are running the Elle stuff with the same sentence: “Benedict – who was shot by photographer Mark Horn for ELLE UK – is currently in a relationship with Sophie Hunter but he admits the dating game has become more complicated since he became famous.” So… a confirmation that Sophie Hunter is the secret girlfriend? Yes. Just take it as a confirmation, even though we’ve known for MONTHS that he’s dating Sophie. And there are a few more quotes from the Elle piece:

Sherlock’s sexuality: “He’s asexual for a purpose. Not because he doesn’t have a sex drive, but because it’s suppressed to do his work. Cold showers, looking at a lot of dead bodies… that’ll do it for you.”

On playing geniuses in both The Imitation Game and Sherlock: “It [genius] is a very rich canvas to work with as an actor. Turing is so different to Sherlock. There’s a real subtlety about him; his flourishes aren’t flamboyant, he doesn’t think of himself that highly.”

The future: “I can imagine I’ll look back at this point in my life and think, ‘Wow that was really extraordinary’. But at the same time I hope I’m looking back and going, ‘Oh, that was the moment I got on with life and realized things beyond myself’. Without using words like ‘marriage’, ‘children’ and ‘family’ – although I have just used those words – put it this way: I hope I’ve got other people to look back with me at that point. I hope I’m surrounded by family.”

[From Contact Music]

I don’t know why Bendy keeps getting asked to compare and contrast Alan Turing and Sherlock Holmes. It seems like a very tired line of questioning. But I could listen to him talk about Sherlock’s sexuality all day long.

Oh, and here’s the “secret project” Benedict did with the BBC. Because Bendy will literally do anything for the BBC. He’s their go-to guy. So he recited Hamlet’s “All the world’s a stage” speech for a BBC promotional ad for “A Lifetime of Original British Drama on the BBC.” All I can think is “velvet voice, hate the hair.” Oh, and yes he’s wearing a denim shirt. Of course.

Nikki Ferrell-Juan Pablo Galavis Breakup: Who Dumped Who, and Why?

The (not at all) stunning and abrupt breakup of Juan Pablo Galavis and girlfriend Nikki Ferrell absolutely floored fans of The Bachelor and Couples Therapy.

We know. We’re shocked … that it took almost a whole year.

Why did Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell break up, though? Who did the dumping and for what reason? We’ll give you one guess, because it’s pretty obvious …

Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis on Couples Therapy

Nikki kicked Juan to the curb at long, LONG last. Ess okay.

Insiders say there had been trouble in paradise for some time (ya think?) but their rift intensified after The Bachelor stars appeared on VH1’s Couples Therapy.

If you watch Couples Therapy online, it’s clear that therapy didn’t take for the two, especially Nikki, who reached a point where she couldn’t take it anymore.

In a sense, maybe the show did work, just not as planned.

“Juan and Nikki have been fighting,” an insider says, and the 27-year-old Ferrell was the one who pulled the plug the source adds, noting: “It was not mutual.”

Another source says the two just wanted different things.

“Everything Nikki wanted, he didn’t,” the source notes.

“She wanted to settle down and he didn’t.”

This, evidently, was not as obvious to Nikki as it was to EVERY TV VIEWER AND CELEBRITY NEWS READER IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell Kiss

Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell kiss in a cute photo.

“They were not seeing eye to eye on anything,” the insider claims. “Juan wanted Nikki in Miami. Nikki didn’t want to leave her family, friends, or job.”

“Meanwhile, Juan wouldn’t even consider going to Kansas.”

“Nikki felt like she was doing all the work in the relationship, and that Juan expected her to join his life … she couldn’t get him to compromise at all.”

The same source adds that the notorious douchebag “stopped putting any effort in the relationship” after seeking Dr. Jenn Berman’s help on Couples Therapy.

“I don’t think he ever said ‘I love you’ to her,” the insider says, which had been an issue from the start, but ultimately caused Ferrell to break down.

“He didn’t put Nikki’s priorities first and she had enough.”

On the show(s), Galavis routinely played the culture/language barrier card, saying Ferrell had a “word issue” because “she wants to hear, ‘I love you.'”

He added, “If I say it, I mean it.”

Guess he didn’t.

Juan Pablo and Clare Crawley

Juan Pablo and Clare Crawley in their final face to face moment ever. It was not pretty.

You didn’t need The Bachelor spoilers to give this breakup away ahead of time, or to tell you that Chris Soules has the bar set very, very low for him in 2015.

Seriously. He can’t possibly be worse.

19 Shocking Reality TV Scandals NO ONE Saw Coming (Well, Probably)

Reality TV and controversial, OMG moments go hand in hand. They’re the primary reason you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online (for example).

In the early days, though, such moments weren’t nearly as common or explosive. The Real World has nothing on some of the scandals of modern times.

Lately, it seems like we’re dealt one jaw-dropping reveal, moment or conflict after another. So many it’s almost become a struggle to keep up with them all.

That said, here are 19 of the biggest reality TV scandals of all time:

TLC Cancels Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

Give the network credit. It pulled the plug as soon as rumors spread of June Shannon dating her daughter’s former molester. EWWWWW!

Not all shockers take place with the cameras rolling, of course.

Jon and Kate Gosselin imploded off camera, while TLC just canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo because of June Shannon dating a child molester.

That never made it to air … and the show likely never would have if producers had known the tawdry extent of the Georgia matriarch’s past relationships.

Bottom line? Don’t expect an end to the madness anytime soon.

Despite what its title implies, you don’t watch Bad Girls Club: Redemption for the actual redemption, but for the bad girls clubbing each other. Just saying.

As long as producers and network executives believe that scandals equal ratings, awful behavior will continue to be the norm, rather than the exception.

Even if they don’t create drama on camera, the types of personalities likely to land shows in a more and more absurd TV landscape are likely loose cannons.

See now-canceled Sons of Guns and other examples.

This is just how it is these days. Some lament the state of TV for this reason, but there’s clearly an audience for it, and it appears to be growing if anything.

Click through and see which you would rank #1!

June Shannon Had Daughter With Second Sex Offender, New Report Says

The star of the newly-canceled TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo may have been even more rife with scandal than originally believed.

Executives axed the show amid reports of matriarch June “Mama June” Shannon dating her ex-boyfriend Mark McDaniel, a convicted child molester.

June Shannon and Mark McDaniel dated before his 10-year prison sentence, and he even molested one of June’s daughter’s prior to being locked up.

McDaniel is not the first sex offender Shannon has been linked to, though.

  • June Shannon Pic
  • Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Family

The father of Shannon’s daughter Jessica, Michael Anthony Ford, was arrested in 2005 and later convicted for the sexual exploitation of a child over the Internet.

According to Georgia Department of Corrections, he was sentenced to a maximum of four years behind bars and 10 years of probation for the criminal offense.

He is still behind bars on a separate charge of child abandonment.

The fathers of Shannon’s other children, including estranged husband David Michael “Sugar Bear” Thompson, also have criminal records, albeit not for sex crimes.

The father of the titular Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson), Suge was sentenced to to five years for robbing a series of campsites and setting fire to another.

David Dunn, the father of Anna Thompson, did time for stealing a handgun and later for stealing a carton of cigarettes. June sure knows how to pick ‘em.

Anna was molested by Mark McDaniel before he went to prison, while Honey Boo Boo was exposed to him after he got out this year, photo evidence shows.

She and Sugar Bear split not long after Mark got out of the slammer.

All of which begs the question of why June wasn’t vetted by producers of Toddlers & Tiaras, where Alana got her reality TV start, or Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

Reality TV Family

This family is way more famous than you are. It’s just unclear why, exactly.

A basic background check would have shown that Shannon and McDaniel were connected via a residential address, along with several other names.

McDaniel’s name comes up as an “associated” name listed at a Stockbridge, Ga., address between 1996-2009 – the same as June’s address from 2001-07.

When the two shows premiered, in 2009 and 2012, respectively, he was in jail. In any case, “Background checks don’t catch everything,” one Hollywood lawyer said.

“And then you have the issue of juvenile records, which aren’t shown.”

Discovery had to abruptly cancel Sons of Guns, after star Will Hayden was arrested on multiple charges of rape and sexual assault against minors this year.

In this case, Hayden had no prior sexual offenses, so Discovery would have had no way of knowing about the alleged crimes except from the victims.

One high-powered reality TV executive says these two shows may change how diligently cast and crew members are vetted from this point on, however.

“This will force companies to go much deeper,” explained the source. “If a child is involved in a show, the entire crew undergoes background checks too.”

“That is likely to become more thorough as well.”

TLC Cancels Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

Give the network credit. It pulled the plug as soon as rumors spread of June Shannon dating her daughter’s former molester. EWWWWW!
