Kylie Jenner Gifts BFF a Mercedes Because Giving Cars as Gifts Is Like Giving Flowers for the Kardashians
This week, Kylie Jenner — who, at barely 18, is the owner of a $2.7 million home — spent some of the money from her new app/reality show/sale of her soul to purchase a black Mercedes-Benz sedan for her friend Jordyn Woods. Jordyn, who the Internet tells us is a "professional best friend," was feeling "blessed and grateful" to be given such a fine automobile.
No doubt. If we were gifted with a new luxury vehicle, we'd feel some other things, including "shock" and "disbelief" because those types of things don't happen — unless you're a Kardashian. The first family of reality TV is constantly giving and receiving cars as gifts, as if that's not a totally crazy gift to give someone.
Tyga presented Kylie with a Ferrari, estimated at $320,000, for her 18th birthday in August.
Ivanka Trump is expecting her third baby — and enlisted the help of kids one and two to break the news.
"I couldn't be more thrilled to share the news with you that I am expecting," the 33-year-old businesswoman, who is married to New York Observer publisher Jared Kushner, wrote on her website. "I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have a career that I am deeply passionate about, but, at the end of the day, it's my family that is at the center of my life — and to be adding another baby to our family is a tremendous blessing. Jared and I are so thankful, and so excited!"
Ivanka also posted outtakes from the making of the pregnancy announcement video and there are even more funny moments, including the Celebrity Apprentice judge bribing Joseph with a lollipop.
Eva Longoria is among the faithful.
The Desperate Housewives alum brought her big sister, Liza, to see Pope Francis speak at the White House on Wednesday. The women appeared to have primo seating at the event, which was held on the South Lawn and attended by about 15,000 people.
"A yr ago I asked my sister Liza, 'Who do you most want to meet in the world?' She said 'the Pope.' And here we are!" the 40-year-old actress, producer, and activist wrote on Instagram. The accompanying photo showed the sisters waving flags from their seats while Liza clutched rosary beads.
Among the topics covered in the pope's speech was immigration and how the "pilgrims" will "enrich America," no doubt something the Mexican American actress was pleased to hear.
Later, the sisters had face time with Donald Cardinal Wuerl Archbishop of Washington. "Liza getting a special blessing," Longoria captioned the photo, giving it hashtags including "Catholic" and "family."
Between running a fashion empire, raising her four adorable mini mes, and being Mrs. David Beckham, she's overdue for a good spa pedicure. Just look at her feet!
On Tuesday night, the designer threw a bash to celebrate the first anniversary of her flagship store on London's Dover Street. As expected, it was an all-around magnificent event with star power (David, Naomi Campbell, and others), custom cocktails ("The Victoria," a mix of lemon, sherry, red currant syrup, and Haig Club Whisky), and enough white balloons to make a sequel of Up .
In one photo, Victoria is rolling around on the floor playing with the balloons — a position more footloose than we're used to seeing our favorite non-smiler. But with one foot kicked up in the air, we can see the bottom and it's absolutely caked with dirt.
Katy Perry and John Mayer continue to baffle with their relationship status, appearing quite couplish — following a recent split — at Allison Williams and Ricky Van Veen's wedding on Saturday. Wearing a long print dress, Perry leaned against the tuxedoed crooner, linking their arms and holding hands.
There is no doubt that they were each other's plus-one, but People magazine confirmed with sources that they're "definitely back together," despite arriving in Wyoming on — gasp! — separate private jets. They also "looked happy," which is apparent from the photo.
It makes sense that they attended the Wyoming wedding of the Girls actress and the CollegeHumor founder together because they've been double dating with them since 2012. John and Ricky are longtime buddies and their ladies hit it off with Katy bringing Allison as her date to the Grammys in 2013.
If only scientists could also figure out how the sparks work between them .
We sure hope Champagne Papi is on the menu.
While Drake isn't slowing down with his music career — his collaborative effort with Future, What a Time to Be Alive , was released this week — he is diversifying. The Canadian rapper has opened a Toronto restaurant with celebrity chef Susur Lee called Fring's.
Drizzy himself attended Monday's grand opening of the joint, bringing along a few of his celebrity friends. Most notable was his rumored girlfriend, Serena Williams, whom he wasspotted making out with in August and he supported during the US Open.
Fashion magazine reports that the tennis superstar "walked in, going straight for Drake’s mom! And gave her a huge hug!" (Yes, it was apparently a two exclamation point happening.)
It really doesn’t matter. We're sure his fans are already lining up in hopes of a "6 God" sighting.
Surprising absolutely nobody, Sean Penn doesn't take kindly to being called abusive.
In the headlines earlier today was the Oscar-winner's defamation lawsuit against Empire co-creator Lee Daniels, whom he claims falsely accused him of abusing women. This new legal case brings up old tales of Penn's violent past.
The Hollywood bad boy has notoriously tangled with paparazzi (see Sean Penn's 7 Most Out-RAGE-ous Moments), that's not in question, but he continues to be dubbed an "abuser" — a topic that was dusted off again after he presented at this year's Academy Awards — and it traces back to an incident that took place with his first wife, Madonna, nearly 30 years ago.
Rumer Willis simply couldn't do it alone!
The Dancing With the Stars champ, 27, made her Broadway debut in Chicago on Monday and such a momentous occasion drew support from her famous family. Not only did exes Bruce Willis and Demi Moore reunite for their eldest (as they did during Rue's DWTS days), but her sisters, Scout and Tallulah, were there as well.
The blended family was the picture of happiness in the photos, which had Bruce and Emma Heming Willis flanking the Broadway babe and a bespectacled Demi with her arms around Tallulah and Scout. Though Bruce and Demi divorced in 2000, they seemed on good terms, as they have been through the years.
Bruce was a proud papa, according to Emma, who posted some Instagram photos. "Beaming with pride," the model wrote on Tuesday. "Still buzzing from her performance last night. You never fail to amaze us @ruelarue #RumerIsRoxie @chicagomusical."
The picture of the three sisters under the marquee outside the Ambassador Theatre is pretty great.
It was a vision of love on Monday night when Mariah Carey and James Packer hit the red carpet for the first time.
The couple, who has been linked since spring, attended the premiere of The Intern , which stars Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway, at the Ziegfeld Theater. The songstress wore a curve-hugging gown (what else?) with a shiny black cropped jacket. The billionaire businessman wore a suit.
Told by an Entertainment Tonight reporter that they look incredible together, Mariah replied with a simple, "Aw, thank you." She also said they were having "fun."
'Gotham' Co-Stars Morena Baccarin and Benjamin McKenzie Go Public With Their Romance at Emmy Afterparty
Gotham co-stars Morena Baccarin, 36, and Benjamin McKenzie, 37, arrived arm in arm at the Fox Emmy Awards afterparty on Sunday night. She looked ready for a date night in a low-cut red Reem Acra gown that was see-through in the bodice. He was smokin' in a Salvatore Ferragamo tux.
People magazine and E! News are among the news outlets to have confirmed with sources that there is romance brewing for the pair, but really you need to look no further than this photo. Yep, they're totally hot for each other.
Fans of their Fox series have witnessed their chemistry since nearly a year ago. Baccarin, who played Brody's long-suffering wife, Jessica, on Homeland , joined the cast of the Gotham last October. She's Leslie Thompkins to his James Gordon, and they dig each other on the show too. Just look:
