Kate Upton Dances With Kate Upton CGI Clones in Vogue, Likes Being Sexy

One of the reasons we love Kate Upton, aside from the more obvious reasons, is that the model always loves to have fun and doesn’t take life too seriously.

The 21-year-old, featured in Vogue’s Kim Kardashian cover issue, has a blast dancing with herself – literally, twice over – on the magazine’s website.

What’s her secret to staying happy and fun all the time?

“What I try to do, and it took me a little while to learn, is to only do things I really believe in so that it’s more of a collaboration,” Kate Upton explains.

“That way, I’m not

Porsha Williams: Kordell Stewart’s Beard or Better Half?

Was Porsha Williams anything more than Kordell Stewart’s beard?

This topic came up last night on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 6 Episode 17, when the gang traveled to Mexico for some sun, and shade (throwing).

Kenya Moore’s welcome dinner quickly turned into a discussion of Porsha Stewart’s marriage to former NFL star Kordell Stewart and whether it was a PR stunt.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star sort of admitted this was true.

“His celebrity was tainted,” said Porsha Stewart, 31. “I had a plan for us. My plan was to be the

Kim Kardashian and Kompany Sing Goodbye to Jay Leno

It’s official: Kim Kardashian has the best publicist in the history of the world.

On the final Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, which concluded with Leno in tears, the reality star somehow found herself among a group of actual celebrities who parodied a Sound of Music classic to bid farewell to the host.

There was Chris Paul, one of the best basketball players on the planet. There was Carol Burnett, arguably the most famous female comedian of all-time. There was Oprah Winfrey, who is Oprah Winfrey.

And thn there was Kim Kardashian, whose main talents include sex tape starring

Desiree Hartsock Rap: The Worst Thing in the History of the World?

We were pretty generous last night with our Bachelorette grade, awarding the latest episode 69 points when we easily could have docked it 1,000 for one reason alone:

Desiree Hartsock and Soulja Boy. Rapping. Together. For real.

The footage – which of course includes Desiree’s suitors – is every bit as painful as you’d imagine, making us think twice about bashing that Sophie Grace video this week.

That thing is Emmy material compared to this nonsense. Watch now if you dare:

Presenting: The Dopest Bar Mitzvah Invitation in History!

Sorry, Jewish 13-year olds around the nation. But you can stop trying now: there’s no way you’ll come up with the best Bar Mitzvah invitation of 2013.

That honor belongs to a young man named Daniel, who raps about his life-altering event on May 11 in a video that is creating quite the viral sensation.

Set against the instrumental of “Welcome to Atlanta,” the online invite includes appearances by Charles Barkley and the Mayor of Atlanta; is sponsored by Bacardi; and features a promise that there will be “straight kosher munchin.”

Seriously, what more could one ask for when turning

Ronda Rousey Makes UFC History

Move over, Danica Patrick. There’s a new female athlete making headlines around the country.

Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche competed in the first-ever women’s UFC bout last night, with Rousey demonstrating why she may be a trailblazer for years to come in the arena of women sports.

She won the match toward the end of the first round with her signature arm bar.

Rousey – a former judo star with only two years of pro MMA experience, wondered afterward whether this was truly “real life,” adding:

“I felt like the UFC champion, and I know how hard I am working. This was a wild ride,

Mayan Calendar: Totally Way Off!

The Mayan calendar was off the mark today.

December 21, 2012 is here and so are we. What a JOKE. On the plus side, at least after the end of the world doesn’t happen today, we can stop reading about it, right?

One wonders why we ever even did.

“There’s no real prophecy that says this is the end of the world,” said Christopher Powell, a noted Mayan archeologist, told ABC. “Not from the Mayan ruins, anyway.”

The Archaeological Institute of America adds, “Whatever the significance of the date is, it is significance we put on it; it’s not the significance the Maya put on
