In case his recent request to lower child support payments didn’t get the message across, Rob Kardashian is low on funds. In the matter of his flailing sock company, however, his mom Kris Jenner is helping him out. Or forcing him to sell the business to her, depending how you look at it. The Blast obtained documents on Wednesday indicating that Rob was forced to sell half his sock brand Arthur George to Jenner. He says in the document, ‘When the business was struggling, my other infused it with capital to keep it afloat and from her infusion gained a 50 percent share in the company.” Something about this word “infusion” sits uneasy with me; perhaps its association with blood. Rob went on, “Previously, the line’s success was in large part due to my regular posting and general promotion on social media. Angela’s [aka Blac Chyna’s] request for a restraining order against me includes various prohibitions on what I could post online. In … [Read more...] about Rob Kardashian Reportedly Forced to Sell Beloved Sock Company to His Mother
Michael B. Jordan, 31, is on the cover of this month’s issue of GQ, in which he is profiled as one of their Men of the Year. MBJ’s interviews are pretty formulaic: the interviewer talks of his innate charisma or warmth, mentions his impossible smile, and likely meets his parents because MBJ still lives in a home with his family. Eventually he makes his way to talking about how Denzel Washington is his role model, though he ultimately wants to be an actor on par with Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, his ambitions unsoiled by racist typecasting or strictly “black” roles. He insists, I mean insists, that he’s not dating anyone, ever. Another topic the puffy-cheeked hunk has contended with more than once is the pesky rumor that he doesn’t date black women. Speaking to GQ in relation to the rumor he says: “Like, damn. Of all the places that I’m getting this, it’s coming from here?” He also addressed the matter in his Vogue 73 … [Read more...] about Michael B. Jordan Does Not Only Date White Women! (He Says)
Now that the sometimes nauseating sometimes stupefying fever dream that was Megyn Kelly hosting the 9 a.m. hour of the Today show has come to an end, it’s possible NBC can breath a sigh of relief knowing ratings have since gone up. Deadline reports that since Megyn Kelly Today was canceled on October 26—following Kelly’s characteristic questioning of whether blackface is bad—viewership has consistently gone up in the “key demographic favored by advertisers in that time period,” Variety reported. Nielsen estimates an improvement of about 10 percent. Deadline concludes that “viewers are liking…a return to the more traditional Today format, helmed by a stable of Today show talent, most often including Craig Melvin, Jenna Bush Hager, and Al Roker.” The fourth hour of Today, hosted by Hota Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford, has also reportedly received more positive ratings since Kelly’s departure. According to Variety, executives at … [Read more...] about Better Ratings Follow Megyn Kelly’s Departure From
Michelle Obama, who is currently making the press rounds promoting her new book In Her Own Words, appears to be sporting a flashier engagement ring recently. Michelle’s old ring was a tasteful solitaire set in yellow gold, with a simple gold wedding band to match. The new ring is white gold and square, or emerald cut. As the Obamas celebrated 25 years of matrimony last year, it was maybe a gift from Barack Obama to commemorate their anniversary. Buuut... it could have also been a “you owe me for dealing with being First Lady of this awful nation, which elected a hateful can of cheez whiz after you” commemorative apology gift. Can you imagine 25 years of marriage, to one person, even Barack Obama? Or 25 years of anything? She also has amazing lashes, who’s her vendor? [Us Magazine] After the death of Stan Lee yesterday, social media was inundated with stars, especially those who had worked with the prolific comic book creator, sharing their condolences, including … [Read more...] about Michelle Obama’s Engagement Ring Got an Upgrade
Lorde is pretty steamed about what she says is the theft of her stage design by Kanye West and Kid Cudi for their new project, Kids See Ghosts. In an Instagram story, she wrote, “I’m proud of the work I do, and it’s flattering when other artists feel inspired by it, to the extent that they choose to try it on themselves. But don’t steal—not from women or anyone else—not in 2018 or ever.” I don’t know, it kind of just looks like a giant glass box to me, though those beam locations are a little exact. If you’re going to rip off someone’s work, at least be less obvious about it. [Pitchfork] This is Celine Dion announcing the debut of her children’s clothing line, obviously. I can already tell “It’s okay, it’s okay...I’m Celine Dion” is going to be something I start saying at parties after I spill a drink on someone’s cat. Also, who...is she talking to? It took … [Read more...] about Did Kanye West and Kid Cudi Steal Lorde’s Stage Design?
