Lori Loughlin Claims Ignorance in Operation Varsity Blues Scandal

Aunt Becky is using the ignorance defense for her and her husband's not guilty plea

Aunt Becky is claiming that she and her husband only paid the facilitator (Singer) $500,000 to get her daughters in to USC... somehow someway. They claim they didn't know that Singer was going to pay off the USC coach.

When you find yourself in a hole, it's usually best to stop digging:

🙄 they still had both daughters photographed on a rowing machine even though the daughters were never on a crew team

🙄 Mossimo paid $100,000 directly to the USC assistant athletic director because of course he did

ONTD do know people who punch above their weight class on a daily basis then expect their misfiring synapses to keep them out of trouble?

After the show aired, Chiitan was quick to respond, and John Oliver made it clear he is well aware of the challenge:

Jennifer Garner is People Magazine's Most Beautiful Person

Jennifer Garner graces the cover of People Magazine's annual Beautiful Issue, as 2019's most beautiful person.

The 47-year-old actress reveals in the issue the most surprising thing she hears from fans, "They tell me I’m prettier in person than I am on screen!"

But she doesn't take offense to it, "You might as well see it for the compliment that they mean it to be. That happens, if I’m out and about, every day at some point. I don’t know what it is, but that is by far what I hear the most.”

Her secret to handling fame? She says she never pays attention to anything about herself in the media. “Zero. Not only do I not read comments, I work very hard to not see the pictures, to not read articles or to know what’s out there at all. And it’s not that I don’t care, it’s that I care too much. Instagram is a different story because I don’t get a lot of people being mean.”

Influencer fakes her trip to Coachella

Musician and YouTuber Gabbie Hanna has been a critic of the festival for attracting a crowd that is not interested in the music and only on posting their outfits on Instagram, so her followers were confused when she started posting pictures in Indio this past weekend. The truth was that all her photos were photoshopped.

"I know people who double up their outfits on the first weekend and take photos so they can pretend to go to both weekends," she says. "So what i'm doing is not that far from reality."

She staged her Coachella photos at a friend's house and on a lawn at Marina del Rey. Donning colorful wigs and Coachella approved outfits, she photoshopped crowds into the background. Her followers were fooled — in the age of filters, Hanna's slightly blurred fellow festival goers didn't raise any questions.

Cardi B Calls Out The Shade Room Over Negative Coverage

Cardi B has publicly called out the popular Instagram-based blog, claiming they only report negative stories about her husband Offset and those associated with them.

They published a recent story about Offset being hit with three charges following his arrest last summer.
In a series of eight Instagram posts, which have since been deleted, Cardi lashed out at the Instagram blog.

The site is not allowed to post about her, but she believes they have a vendetta against her.
Cardi also shared a photo of the owner of The Shade Room.
She also claimed that this kind of reporting contributed to the beef between Kodak Black and T.I. 

“This is why I don’t fuck with that nasty ass fake ass page that always claim they for the people but in a BIAS way! How many positive shit have offset been doing this year ? Sooo much ! But naaa they rather post about his babymomma drama and cases all cause a refrigerator build bitch that owns the page is mad cause I be calling out the bullshit.”

[Some quotes]
“She know that she not allowed to post about me, so what does she do, she post mad shit about people who she know that I’m associated with,”

"I’m not saying, 'Oh, I only want people to post positive shit about us. That bias shit that people wanna do all the time because they on a fucking hate campaign, they on some fuck QC, fuck Cardi B campaign. That shit is getting wack. It’s trash. How do people want us to change…for what? Why change, if y’all only post the fuck shit that happens in our lives.”

"Offset donated 25K to the Ellen foundation for the kids in Africa. Did The Shade Room post it? No. Is The Shade Room posting how this man is promoting a cancer free campaign? No. Are they posting any positive shit and investment talk that he’s been talking about in his interviews? No. But they sure post the way he had drama with his baby mom. They sure posting about his court cases, right?"

"Why are they making documentaries about R. Kelly? Why are they making documentaries about Michael Jackson? Because y’all make people feel like its ok to do so. Why wouldn’t a white Caucasian person try to capitalize on the drama that happens in the urban and black entertainment business when black-owned blogs capitalize on their own drama and problems?" 

"You don’t see Donald Trump and Charlie Sheen’s shit going viral every year, every so, because they don’t give a fuck anymore. Back in the day, TMZ used to post about Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, all these Caucasian celebrities. Now all they do is post about hip-hop artists, people that’s in the black entertainment business because black blogs capitalize off black entertainers’ drama. Y’all barely post positive shit about us, so why would a white blog post positive shit about us?"

Selena Gomez opens up about therapy, insecurity, and social media

Coach launched their own podcast, and kicked off their first episode with brand ambassador Selena Gomez, who opened up about a number of issues and topics in an open discussion with Heben Nigatu.

“I don’t really think that people know my heart.” Gomez says.

On therapy: "I go to therapy. It’s just one of the most important things — to get to know yourself. I do think that it’s helped me understand myself and my childhood a lot better. I am a believer of therapy … I wish I could have done a lot of things and experienced things maybe a little differently."

On self-image: “I don’t really appreciate people judging me on my looks or anything like that … I’m flattered when guys are like, ‘You’re pretty,’ [but] I would just love someone to love me for the person that I am. When I was younger, I was exposed to all of this [fame], and it was just all these pictures and all I would do is look at the flaws. Then when I started going through real, really difficult things, it just allowed me to have worth, to know that I’m worthy and that I am who I am.”

On social media: “I noticed I got kind of depressed looking at these people who look beautiful and amazing, and it would just get me down a lot. Taking breaks is really important. Just know that most of it isn’t real. It’s very unrealistic in a lot of ways. It is not that healthy to be on [social media] all the time.”
