Kim Kardashianis the undisputed(?) queen of social media, naked selfies, and spinning-sextapes-into-goldmines, but now she’s using her power – and her bazillions of social media followers – to bring a little positive change into the world. (Did I wake up in an alternate reality?) According to Fish Wrapper, “Kim’s teamed up with Dr. Drew Pinsky for a documentary called ‘#RedFlag,’ which highlights the correlation between depression and social media today.”
Kim will serve as executive producer on the new show and says, “I am blessed to be surrounded by family and friends that are loving and nurturing, but not everyone has that kind of support. Twenty-five percent of adults in America will suffer from a mental illness in their lifetime, and many of them turn to social media to vent their depression, loneliness and isolation.”
Ramona Singer wants it known yes, she did by happenstance accidentally commandeer Bethenny Frankel‘s dress, but it was hardly a designer item worth thousands and it was hardly intentional!
Describing how she ended up with Bethenny’s dress, the Real Housewives Of New York star insists it was actually given to her by a production staffer and she never even wore it on the talk show. “Do these ladies have nothing better to talk about than a dress? Talk about ‘telephone,'” complains Ramona. “I didn’t take the dress, and I never put the dress on, but it was graciously given to me by one of the line producers at the end of co-hosting a segment with Bethenny.”
“The dress was not a Herve Leger seven-figure dress. It was a Halston, a three-figure dress,” Ramona continues. “It did not fall out of my car, but it was in my car that I share with Mario, and I didn’t know where it ended up ’til later (and on my body with Avery in an Instagram shot and cover photo on iPhone. Must say I love that dress.)”
With 3 of her children and Kathy Hilton present, Kim stormed out of the interview and hid in her hotel suite arguing with her children and Dr. Phil staffers about her condition and getting treatment.
Of course, this is just how Kim rolls – production sources for RHOBH have been covertly spilling all about how impossible Kim has been to work with over the years, explaining that her drinking, irascible (and dangerous) behavior, and a refusal to get help has been a constant problem – including becoming a major insurance liability!
Paris Hilton is one of the original reality stars. She took being a “celebutante” to the next level of branding with a reality show, product lines and more. Paris is now DJ’ing, among a million other things, and making a ton of money without having to parade around for cameras anymore. She sat down with Nylon magazine for their new issue to chat about everything from getting daily reality TV offers to launching her new makeup and skincare line.
On how she’s changed since doing The Simple Life. (Oh how I wanted her pink truck back then!) “Back then I didn’t even wear fake eyelashes, and I didn’t know about contouring. I didn’t really wear a lot of makeup on the show. I was more of a tomboy before.”
On last night’s Little Women: NY, the group circles the wagons aroundLila Call, whose recent drinking relapse gives them all a wake-up call. We begin at a restaurant with Dawn Lang & Jazmin Lang, who have tension brewing since their disagreement about Jazmin’s performance in Jordanna James’ recent burlesque show. But they’re not here to fight. They’re here because Christy McGinty (of Little Women: L.A.) reached out to Dawn about Lila. Christy, a recovering alcoholic, walks into the restaurant to tell Dawn & Jazmin that Lila’s been sending her weird texts at all hours of the day this past week, telling her she’s been drinking wine, and has basically fallen off the wagon. Lila was sober for about a year up to this point, having been to rehab in the past and a participant in AA since then.
Christy asks the girls if Lila’s been drinking. Jazmin evades the question, not wanting to “throw Lila under the bus.” “Have you guys gone out drinking with her?” Christy flat out asks them, and Dawn finally says yes. She says Jazmin has been drinking with Lila too, although Jazmin has been basically struck mute in the corner of the booth. The ladies then confess that they’ve seen Lila drinking, but don’t think she’s out of control. Christy reminds them that some alcoholic’s “rock bottom” is death. Jazmin finally sits up and listens, and all three ladies agree that they need to confront Lila in an intervention. Christy reminds them that this is all out of love, not anger.
Oh, Married to Medicine, I mean Medicine (thanks so much to the commenter who always makes me laugh by giving him that moniker!), I guess you’ve learned that it’s always best to tell the truth…even if the truth could cost you millions of dollars and potentially years away from the free world. And we all agreed that this past season of Love & Hip Hop was boring–what were we thinking?
Mendeecees Harris, one of the stars of VH1’s original L&HH franchise, has finally faced the music…and not of the hip hop variety. On Tuesday, Yandy Smith’s fiance pleaded guilty to the drug charges that have plagued him of late and sent him to prison for a good portion of the past season.
Yolanda Foster has been very public about her battle with Lyme Disease. Now Yolanda is part of a new campaign to raise awareness for Lyme Disease, which affects millions of Americans each year. Yolanda has enlisted her fellow Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills stars to snap a photo for the ‘Take A Bite Out Of Lyme’ challenge, which is also supported by Dr. Oz.
“It takes a village, please pass it on…….. #WeMustFindACure #LymeDiseaseChallenge #TakeABiteOutOfLyme I challenge @Lisavanderpump @kylerichards18 @lisarinna @eileendavidson @brandiglanville2 @kimrichards11 @bravoandy @dr_Oz,” Yolanda shared on instagram with a photo of herself and the ever-supportive David taking a bite out of a lime.
The RHOBH ladies, plus other reality stars got in on the action to raise awareness. You can see the photos below! And if you want to contribute your own photo to the challenge, simply bite a lime, snap it, and caption it with #TakeABiteOutOfLyme on twitter or instagram.
