In a new interview, Kim Kardashian opens up about her relationship with Kanye West, who is soon to become her ex-husband. Andy Cohen asked the mother of four, who was divorced from rapper Kayne West, in part one of the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” reunion as to the reasons behind her split from the 44-year-old West.
Though her split was not revealed in Season 20 of KUWTK, her team disagreed with her interpretation. However, Kardashian informed viewers of the reality series that she did not file for divorce due to just one reason.
In an interview with People, Kardashian said she wasn’t going to say what led to their separation on television. Still, instead, it was only a general difference of opinion that culminated in this. After that, however, the KKW Beauty mogul insisted that she would give her marriage her best shot.
The last thing I’d want anyone to think is that I didn’t give it my all or that I wasn’t trying very hard. A total of four kids live with us. So naturally, parents would want nothing more than to see their family together, whether it’s their parents or their kids. As someone who grew up in a large family, she added, “I live that every day.”. She said that at present, the two have an “amazing co-parenting relationship.” “And I so respect him.” she said. “He has been my friend for a long time, so I don’t see that going anywhere,” said the KKW Beauty mogul.
The reality star added, “I will always be Kanye’s biggest fan…Kanye will always be family.” Kardashian and West were rumored to be dating in the year following her divorce from Kris Humphries, whom she said deserves an apology from her in the episode. Asked by Cohen when she knew she was in love with Yeezy’s founder, Kardashian replied, “I realized it after the first date I went on.”.
My divorce with Kris Humphries began six months after the divorce decree was completed. It was the first time I called Kanye over the phone, and I responded,” You’re not even gonna call me to say I told you so?” Nine months later, we met up, and I knew instantly it was over,” the 40-year-old TV personality added. According to Kardashian, she also feels that her marriage to West stood out from all the rest. She was first married to music producer Damon Thomas between 2000 and 2004 before her 72-day marriage to Humphries.
It was as real as my first real marriage and was filled with so much love, and I felt like Kanye and I were married,” Kardashian shared. However, she admits that she wishes she had only married once.
Yes, she said, stating the idea in no uncertain terms. It would be nice to have someone who knows what this life is all about. Yet, then, I was very different than I am now, both in what I was looking for and in who I was back then. My values revolve around privacy, and I just want a relationship that is truly real.”
Last week, West and Bradley Cooper’s ex, Irina Shayk, were spotted in France. In addition to celebrating his 44th birthday, West was spotted with the model in the French region of Provence on Tuesday. According to the outlet, they walked around the property of a luxury boutique hotel by themselves and in groups. A source told E! that they had not been formally introduced when the West and Shayk photos emerged. However, the rumor that she and her ex were dating didn’t bother Kim Kardashian.
According to the insider, if it doesn’t affect her children, Kanye may date if that doesn’t negatively affect their relationship. Their wedding took place on May 28, 2014, and they called it quits on February 3, 2021. They have four children together: North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm 2.
Princess Diana’s last phone call is the subject of a statement from Richard Kay; the topic is covered in the new documentary “Diana,” which screens Thursday in the UK. His long-time relationship with Diana was documented in many articles and books since her death in 1997. A few months before she died in 1997, Kay said he spoke to the 36-year-old. She died as a result of injuries sustained in a Paris car accident. In an interview with the UK’s Mirror, Kay said that the police told them that she made her last call to him.
During her final days, Kay said, she was “in a great place,” but “she wanted to come back and see her boys.” At the time of her death, Prince William and Prince Harry were 15 and 12. In an interview with the outlet, Kay said Diana was very eager to begin a new chapter of her life. “She was desperate to try and make a fresh start and do something different,” he said.
A documentary aired in 2017 to honor her life and legacy, to mark the 20th anniversary of her death. Despite the brief conversation they had with Diana, the brothers were grateful for her time. The siblings were on their Scottish getaway at the time, their grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s Balmoral retreat. They were eager to play with their cousins once again, so they had a short conversation with their mother.
It’s not a day that goes by that William and I do not wish she were still around, and we wonder what kind of mother she would be and what kind of difference she would make if she were here,” Harry said, as quoted by People magazine.
In honor of their mother, the brothers will reunite on July 1 at Kensington Palace to unveil a statue. Diana would have turned 60 years on the day. Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed a daughter in June. Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was named after the royal couple. Eighth in line to the British throne, her name pays tribute to Harry’s grandmother, whose family nickname is Lilibet, and his late mother, Diana, who died in 2003.
According to Teigen’s followers, she made digs at Michael Costello in an Instagram post referencing the movie “Clueless.” Teigen shared an image at the weekend of herself wearing a pink dress with red polka dots while posing outdoors. The actress identified designer Alaïa as the garment’s creator with a subtle reference to a 1995 comedy and informed her fans of the designer’s hand in creating the garment.
“This is a celebration of love. Thank you for your generosity, Michael! Congratulations to my sister and her fiancé! I also think this is a really important designer!” Teigen captioned the picture. A scene from the movie is referenced, in which the main character, played by Alicia Silverstone, is imprisoned and forced to give up her cell phone and purse by a mugger armed with a gun. Attempting to make her escape, he instructs her to lie face down on the pavement, but she refuses, saying that she is wearing Alaïa and doesn’t want it to be ruined.
Teigen’s followers drew a link between her post and the recent feud she’s been having with “Project Runway” alumnus Michael Costello despite clearly referencing the popular show.
Costello published a lengthy apology for past instances of cyberbullying by Teigen and has now come forward with allegations of his own, saying she sent him disparaging messages on social media throughout 2014, which caused him to contemplate suicide. Teigen responded by denying the allegations and accusing Costello of fabricating screenshots of messages she had sent him in the past. Costello responded again by denying the allegations.
“Michael Costello just released a statement where he would not acknowledge the fake DMs, and now claims to have emails that do not exist,” Teigen wrote. “So while he conjures up those (hopefully with someone who is better at making fakes this time), let’s look at these. Do you remember how confused he was yesterday after Leona Lewis’ stylists treated him so kindly in the past? Well, you can imagine my surprise to find these. I would appreciate you not making fun of this guy while masquerading as my defender. It’s all been taken away from me. It’s all been told to me.”
Teigen pleaded for the truth, saying, “I just want you to know the truth. I am now causing actual pain to people trying to better themselves because of you, Michael. This is enough. If it goes any further, it WILL become more serious. We are not going to court here but in an actual courtroom. The proceeds we receive will be donated to an anti-bullying charity whose mission is to turn this s–t show into a positive. I wish you health and well-being. I have some places I’ve been attending if you’d like the contact info.” Teigen also shared a statement from her rep and some social media exchanges from 2018, in which Costello apparently said “looks beautiful,” among other alleged comments.
Representative of the “Project Runway” alum said in a statement to Fox News: “As long as Chrissy Teigen’s team is desperately trying to discredit Michael Costello, a victim of trauma and bullying by Chrissy Teigen both online and offline, despite her public apology, she remains the same bully.”
The act of victim-blaming, which results in abuse victims feeling that their only hope is to speak up, and their abuser’s first move is to discredit the victim and shame him publicly, is harmful to victims and causes deaths. Chrissy Teigen refused to believe Michael Costello seven years ago when he presented her with direct evidence that the alleged racist comment she saw was fake. Teigen’s team is now quick to discredit the character of Michael, attempting to salvage her image and partnerships, which her decade-long disruptive behavior has negatively impacted,” the statement further states.
Chrissy Teigen went beyond the DMs and comments on Michael Costello’s Instagram revealing personal information and causing him to suffer over seven years of mental and financial distress. There are emails and documents not released to the public which prove she blacklisted Costello offline. In a word, “Costello is one of many who are living with long-lasting, unhealed trauma as a result of Chrissy Teigen’s decade-long bullying behavior,” the designer’s rep noted.
Costello released a similar statement after Teigen’s team announced she would be stepping down from the lifestyle brand she launched with Kris Jenner: Safely. Costello also stated that Teigen’s crisis crew works so hard and has strategically come out against the DM’s she sent him and is trying to downplay the comments she publicly posted on his Instagram. Costello outlined that this proves that she has remained the same bully as always. He also stated that no matter how much she apologies to the public, she will remain the same bully as always. Costello also stated that he plans to take a break from social media after this drama ends.
Chrissy Teigen is out at Safely.
The 35-year-old “Cravings” author is “stepping away from” the cleaning and self-care brand she launched with Kris Jenner amid her ongoing bullying scandal.
“Chrissy will be stepping away from Safely to take much-needed time to focus on herself and be with her family,” said a statement shared on Safely’s Instagram Story on Friday. “We fully support her decision and are so thankful for her contributions.”
The statement continued: “The brand will continue to move forward and focus on our important mission of bringing high quality, hard-working cleaning products to all American households.”
CHRISSY TEIGEN BREAKS SILENCE ON MICHAEL COSTELLO ALLEGATIONS
Safely produces self-care and plant-powered home cleaning products including hand sanitizer, glass cleaner, laundry detergent, hand soap, and more.
Teigen is in the midst of a bullying scandal after being accused of attacking various people, including several high-profile public figures – on social media.
JOHN LEGEND DEFENDS CHRISSY TEIGEN AMID MICHAEL COSTELLO DRAMA
The star publicly apologized on Monday with a lengthy post on Medium in which she acknowledged having been a “troll” in the past.
“Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past,” she said in the post.
However, the scandal was compounded not long after the apology when designer Michael Costello spoke out and accused the former model of trying to kill his career following a social media misunderstanding that seemingly was faked to make Costello appear racist but was later proven to be nothing more than a set of photoshopped images from a disgruntled employee.
The 22-year-old new mom did not hold back with her response.
Steve wouldn’t be pleased to hear about this.
Bindi Irwin, the late Steve’s daughter, is making some unsettling allegations against her grandfather, Bob Irwin. In a Father’s Day post dedicated to her own father, her husband, Chandler Powell, and her father-in-law, Irwin was asked why she left Bob out of the tribute. The 22-year-old new mom did not hold back with her response.
“Unfortunately my grandfather Bob has shown no interest in spending time with me or my family,” she wrote, according to 7News. “Publicly he continues to claim that he wants to spend time with us while privately my entire life has been psychological abuse from him.”
Irwin goes on to claim that Bob has even gone so far as to return gifts she’s sent him over the years — after opening them.
“From the time I was a little girl he has ignored me,” Irwin continued. “Preferring to spend time doing anything else rather than being with me. He has never said a single kind word to me personally. It breaks my heart but it is not healthy to engage in an abusive relationship.”
According to Irwin, who welcomed her first child in March, her mom, Terri Irwin, continues to write letters and send gifts to Bob — only to be ignored as well.
Irwin also alleged that the family has been supporting Bob financially since 1992 and is still sending him weekly payments. Despite how he has purportedly treated Irwin and her family for decades, she maintains she still wants to make sure he is taken care of.
We built him a house on a beautiful property and will always do our best to ensure his well-being.”
Famous actor Tom Hanks said that filmmakers should tackle racism better. He explained that Black history and the societal effects of racism were underrepresented in the entertainment industry and American schools.
After the Tulsa race massacre marked its 100th anniversary on Friday, Tom Hanks wrote that history is “written mainly by white people about white people like me and that history of Black people, including the horrors of Tulsa, is ignored too often.
It is something that the entertainment industry, which many people use as a base to determine what history is and what is forgotten, has done until relatively recently. I include projects of mine in that list, he said. In a message to his colleagues, he explained that historical fiction entertainment must better portray racism currently present in our country, considering the art form’s claims of genuineness and authenticity.
“Band of Brothers,” “The Pacific,” and “John Adams” are among the historical films and TV shows in which Hanks has appeared or produced, and he has also appeared in documentaries about the history of the United States.
Following years of debate about a lack of diversity in the film industry, he urges his fellow filmmakers and producers to participate. This issue is discussed virtually every time an awards season rolls around. According to Hanks, the TV series “Watchmen” and “Lovecraft Country” depict the Tulsa massacre in an insightful way.
The USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative found that 32% of top-grossing movies in 2019 featured an underrepresented actor in the lead role or co-starring role — a significant jump over the 13% figure recorded in 2007 when the study began.
Nevertheless, most of the industry’s major award ceremonies are frequently criticized for their lack of diversity in nominations. While the #OscarsSoWhite campaign has plagued the Academy Awards for years, this year’s Golden Globes was in the spotlight for being over-represented by members of the White ethnicity.
In one of the worst acts of racial violence in US history, the Tulsa massacre, which took place over two days from 1921 to 1922, caused the death of 300 black people and the destruction of a once prosperous Oklahoma neighborhood.
In the United States, a day of remembrance commemorated its 100th anniversary. President Joe Biden also discussed the erasure of the event from the historical lore of the United States in a speech. The President stated that it was not a riot. He described the massacre as “among the worst in our history, but it wasn’t the only one.” He added that our past had forgotten this tragedy too long. After it occurred, there was an apparent effort to blot it out of collective memory.
A new interview with Salma Hayek shows the actress being incredibly vulnerable about aging and weight loss. A 54-year-old actress told InStyle magazine that people expect her to be an appropriate size because it’s “what’s expected of a person who is considered attractive.”
Hayek said that as she gets older, people expect her not to age. However, after gaining a few pounds to prepare for her upcoming movie, “House of Gucci,” she is proud of her body despite not being at her target weight.
“There hasn’t been much loss on my part. But, it’s like wow, wow, wow. You get it so fast, and it’s like, oh my goodness, it’s so hard to lose it,” she confessed.
She said her body had been “very generous,” no matter how much pressure and criticism she put on it. “I don’t think I am a tamale, but I know that for my age and for the lifestyle I lead, I am not doing too bad.”. She spoke of meditation as the source of all her results.
“A great thing about meditation is that it makes you feel like your body is at rest, which is delicious and satisfying. Taking time to breathe and go inside helps us discover our bodies in a new way and not to worry about the expectations.”
Hayek stated that she has been meditating ever since she was 30 years old. “It gives you a feeling of lightness and satisfaction in your body,” she said. “With your breath and going inside, you see things differently than you previously might have. As a result, you learn not to get sucked into other people’s expectations.”
A family source said that Meghan Markle became physically closer to her family members when she and Prince Harry moved to California last year, but that doesn’t mean they can reconcile – as the source pointed out.
As a result of their decision to move to North America to pursue independent work, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stunned fans with their decision to step down as senior royal members. Since the couple settled in Montecito, Calif., located in Santa Barbara County, it’s been almost a year since they purchased their first property together.
Despite Markle’s return to her native coast, a close relative of the actress who wishes to remain anonymous declined to consider a potential play date between her kids and those of her extended family following the birth of Lilibet Diana, the Sussexes’ second child. “Yep, after I set up a play date with the Winfrey family, too?” the family source jokingly stated.
Markle has long avoided in the media her relation to her father, Thomas Markle, because of their strained relationship. The family source added that the family division has crept up between Markle and her extended family. As the source reported, the new mother of two has made it clear she now believes she’s above her family and where she came from.
I value a real family, making a meaningful contribution to my life, continued the relative. But, an insider added, “You shouldn’t have to be someone you’re not to be accepted and loved.” Markle’s estrangement from her family is “her choice,” the insider said, adding they would not be reaching out to her because a reunion was unlikely. The person who doesn’t want to talk to me is not who I’m chasing after. A family source said, “I have a family, and we couldn’t be happier expressing the love that we have. So in short, I couldn’t give a damn about anything.”.
There may be some tension in Markle’s family, but it doesn’t mean her distant relatives do not wish her well. Markle and Harry’s second child, Lilibet Diana, was born on Friday, June 4. “I’m happy for them,” the relative said about Markle and Harry. I wish them success as they embark on their journey of raising a family.
Despite her paternal family’s best efforts, Markle has had a rocky relationship with them from the beginning of their relationship. Her outspoken half-sister Samantha Markle has made various claims about how the duchess spewed “lies” in interviews, to which the duchess has never responded.
It was revealed that her father would not attend the televised ceremony, causing Harry’s father, Prince Charles, to walk Meghan down the aisle, intensifying the drama during the week of her wedding. Over the past few months, Harry has revealed more details about how his relationship with the British royals, including his father and brother, Prince William, had broken down.
There is a TMZ press report that Kanye West and Irina Shayk have begun dating. As TMZ reports, West and the model were spotted in Provence, France, on his 44th birthday, which was also a day for celebrating. In the report, there are several images of them walking around in a group and by themselves on a luxury boutique hotel premises.
During the final weekend of February, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West. She and West had been married for seven years. The ex-couple has four children: North 7, Saint 5, Chicago 3, and Psalm 2.
At the same time, Shayk, 35, was romantically coupled with actor Bradley Cooper and her four-year-old daughter, Lea, is a product of the former couple. “I consider my old relationship with Cooper as something that belongs to me, and it is private,” she told Elle of their relationship.
West is asking the court for joint legal and physical custody of his kids. In any case, it’s a piece of inner self he doesn’t want to give up.
Despite both he and the Skims founder living comfortably within the realm of billionaires, “Jesus Is King” performer has also requested the court waive any spousal support or attorneys fees owed to either party in the divorce. Fox News requested comments from representatives for West and Shayk, but they did not respond immediately.
If you missed the perfect moment in the “Friends” reunion, you’re forgiven — Lisa Kudrow even admits she almost missed it herself.
In this beloved series, Lisa Kudrow, the actress who played Phoebe Buffay, told “E! News” that her co-star David Schwimmer had to point out the moment to her when they watched the HBO Max special. HBO Max (owned by CNN’s parent company) is a network owned by Time Warner.
Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow joined Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc in the star-studded reunion. Kudrow said Cox is usually not emotional, but she “crumbled into tears (on the set).”…
Kudrow said, “I grab a napkin or tissue. LeBlanc takes it since he is telling us stories and doesn’t want to skip a beat, so he starts dabbing her eyes just on automatic.”
It was a very endearing scene. Kudrow said, “That’s who we were!” The original NBC series ran from 1994 to 2004 and has since been highly successful in syndication and streaming services. Surprisingly, “Friends” still attracts a good audience today.
Despite being a supervillain origin story prequel based on a 60-year-old animated movie, “Cruella” still confounds expectations in many delightful ways. There is much to be credited to Stone and Thompson – both Emmas shine through. The film might have been influenced by “101 Dalmatians,” but this version centers around an exciting catfight.
Glenn Close portrayed Cruella de Vil in the live-action version of “Dalmatians,” setting the bar high for canine-hating villains. Disney is now extending its marketing efforts to accessories for the Disney brand. Nevertheless, Stone makes the character her own — her leather outfits and purring are as much Catwoman as any — and finds a worthy antagonist in Thompson. The two ladies model a parade of dresses that would suggest that the costumes and sets designers were having a great time.
In addition to Disney+ (just like “Mulan”) and theaters as well, “Cruella” has a surprising running time of two hours and fifteen minutes, overstaying its welcome a little. However, it may work well on the smaller screen because of its extended running time. As well, while children might like it, “Cruella” is dark in a way that could easily elude them, making it more appealing to adults who value punk-rock-tinged films.
Disney has traditionally fared better with routine adaptations — think “Beauty and the Beast” and “Aladdin” — than more adventurous ones like “Dumbo.” So the very reason that “Cruella” was a pleasant surprise might work against it commercially.
It seems like Disney’s risk in tapping Craig Gillespie (“I, Tonya”) for directing this movie will pay off. The script is a joint collaboration between several writers, among them Dana Fox (“Couples Retreat”), Tony McNamara (“The Favourite”), and Aline Brosh McKenna (“The Devil Wears Prada”). The original source material is based on a novel by Dodie Smith. The plot is exciting and is based in 1960: Young Estella sees her mother commit suicide after her plea for money is denied by a fashion diva named the Baroness (played by Emma Thompson). Accidently, the Baroness owns several spotted dogs.
Ten years later, Estella grows up and hones her thieving skills on the streets. She gets hired by the Baroness; she begins plotting revenge, creating Cruella as a kind of fashion vigilante. Cruella does thus operate like a caper movie at times while drawing on a seemingly unlimited song budget. The music sets a mood and atmosphere that is reminiscent of the ’70s. At first glance, Cruella and the Baroness find themselves in a showdown of hearts and minds, the latter finally facing an opponent who can match her extreme cruelty.
As the Baroness sneers, “Me or Cruella,” she shows unexpected admiration. We won’t spoil the movie for you, but we’ll only say the following: the movie “Cruella” won’t be to everyone’s taste, but to borrow from the original song, if Stone and Thompson duking it out doesn’t satisfy you at least a little, there is no evil in the world that will.
