Kendall Jenner probably has a lot of clothes thanks to all of her photoshoots. Her sisters probably have big closets filled with freebies from their time on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” show. Kim doesn’t even need to wear clothes. She broke the internet just by taking them off and showing her butt to Paper Magazine. Clothes are just an afterthought. That would explain all of these fashion faux pas that the Kardashians have committed over the years. You might say the Kardashians have risen to the upper crust of Hollywood. However, those at the top have their moments at the bottom.
We start with the mother of the Kardashian Klan, Kris Jenner. Her daughter Kendall Jenner was walking the runway, but she wanted a runway of her own. She wore mesh trousers at the Chanel show at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week this year. I don’t see this fashion statement taking off any time soon. You might as well tape some fish nets around your legs to achieve the same effect. Oh, that’s right. They already invented fishnet stockings.
Hide the altar boys! Don’t let the priest see! Kendall and Kylie Jenner dressed their Sunday Best for an Easter mass in Los Angeles and this was just not good enough for some people. “We have people come casually dressed in jeans and sneakers, but certainly none with an exposed midriff. There’s a fine line. You certainly wouldn’t want to do something to distract people,” Father John Knapp told New York Daily News.
We need Peter Griffin to jump out of “Family Guy” and shout “cultural misappropriation!” for this one. Khloe Kardashian was in Dubai a couple weeks ago and wore a nijab and a hijab. These are usually worn by women in the Muslim community to cover their face. She wrote, “Habibi love” on Instagram and commenters were angry. “I have never been more offended in my whole entire life. My sister wears the nijab and she gets vilified daily. You can wear it and it gets sexualized and praised. I am deeply offended and was a fan of yours, I am disgusted,” said one commenter.
Denim on denim is ok if you’re stuck in the past. But we hope that Kim is trying to look toward the future and not the past. Her shoes didn’t even complete the outfit! Don’t tell me you can afford a denim outfit and not afford denim sneakers or denim high heels. Lulu’s and Gojane.com has them for about $35 retail. You can afford it, Kim. Let the laws of fashion be your guide.
Those are some flashy shorts, but the rest of it has got to go. There is no sense of proportion here. Kourtney clearly went out to work behind the counter of this store and that was the only thing on her mind. But a simple spaghetti strap top would be so much better than this nurse scrub she’s got going on. Then again, nothing can really salvage those shorts. Back to the drawing board.
There’s green hair on top, elephant ears on the sleeves, and leather pants on the bottom. That’s a look. You know the flying nun from “The Flying Nun” did elephant ears so much better. It was a sitcom in the 60s about a nun who could fly. When you want to look stylish, look no further than the nun who would go on adventures by catching a gentle breeze and lifting off into the holy light.
Why worry about keeping your legs warm when you’re a superstar like Kendall? Just throw some embroidery on a large napkin and cut a hole for the neck. Don’t be shy with the craft scissors. Go to town on that dress and you will have a huge panel hanging between your knees. Imagine where the panel will fly off to when you have to do a 100 meter dash to the bathroom before the other red carpet beauties line the stalls.
Somewhere out there is a naked chihuahua or pomeranian, cold and alone in the wilderness. It weeps for the fur it once had. It remembers the time before somebody sheared off its source of warmth to glued onto the shoulders of a coat for Kendall Jenner. Her smiles would lead you to believe that the little hairless dog is in a better place. She could have just taken brown hair clippings from a hair salon and gotten the same look. This look is just weird.
Looks like somebody doesn’t want to leave much to the imagination. This might be a boob window or a screen door for her chest. Either way, we probably won’t be seeing this outfit from Kourtney anytime soon. They say that hairstyles can frame your face. Well, this dress is framing our beloved Kardashian sister in an unflattering position that will never grace the pages of Vanity Fair. Hopefully, the Kardashian clothing line “Dash” has better pieces than this.
It’s like Tinkerbell without the wings and there’s no Peter Pan. The color is alright if you want to hang out with Captain Hook and the crocodile with the clock in his mouth but not for the red carpet. Props for the matching eyeshadow, though. That’s a bold move. Try not to look too hard at her big toes squeezed tightly beside her other toes poking out of those shoes. There can only be one Tinkerbell.
I totally get it. She’s at the People’s Choice Awards and standing in front of the Scope mouthwash and Crest toothpaste sign. That ribbon or sash hanging around her neck is the symbol for dental floss! Her teeth look decent here too. The sexy librarian costume is always a winner at Halloween, so why not use it at the People Choice Awards? The people can choose Kim as their favorite librarian.
This is where Kendall gets it from. One sister starts wearing furry caterpillars around her neck and then the whole family is looking through turnip gardens for a new accessory. Be careful, Kim, because a 2-year-old girl in Virginia got sent to the hospital after touching a furry caterpillar according to WTSP news. Some caterpillars have little barbs attached to venom glands that can sting and spread up the arm.
It looks like these Kardashian sisters were ready to go to the prom…and go wild. After all, they were all smiles in front of this “Girls Gone Wild” wall. That’s the last thing prom dresses need is to be associated with the likes of “Girls Gone Wild.” Girls can go wild without Joe Francis or his videos. Kourtney has also been seen with her kids at Francis’ Mexican villa in Punta Mita.
Kylie Jenner is ready for the rainy weather. It’s hard to believe that she would spend her days far away from Los Angeles where it hardly rains though. This is not a very trendy fashion statement, but it is a very practical one. It’s convenient because she can go to the gym and not worry about sweat staining her clothes. It will just wick away like water off a duck’s back.
Kim wore dungarees and a khaki bra. The “crocodile hunter” look came and went with this look. Nothing says high fashion like “two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, and onions on a sesame seed bun. If only Kanye could have seen her in front of the McDonald’s signs. But all anybody else can see is the dollar signs that these two have in their bank accounts. You can tell the look in her eyes says, “I’m lovin it.”
Dr. Oz: “I’m Very Concerned About the Corona Virus, Here’s Why”
While coronaviruses have been known to medical science since the 1960s, few have been anywhere near as dangerous as this new one from the market in Wuhan China.
A coronavirus is typified by its protective shell which resembles a crown or a halo under a microscope. That is where it gets its name. The average coronavirus does little more than cause the symptoms of the common cold, sniffles, cough, flu-like symptoms and so on. Part of the reason that these viruses are so hard to prevent from causing millions of colds each year is their protective shell. They can remain on a surface for hours, sometimes days, before they begin to lose structural integrity. But few trigger symptoms as severe as this one known as 2019-nCoV.
Dr. Oz had this to say about what has become known as the Wuhan Coronavirus, “It’s alarming, this is the big news today, the Chinese leadership is starting to say ‘this incubation period is a lot longer than we thought.’”
If this report is true, it means that many, many more people may be infected than have been reported- or even anticipated. It means that people could be walking around, infected, and not even know it- not taking precautions and spreading the virus everywhere they go. That means anyone who has recently returned from the area around the Wuhan market, where the outbreak started, could be carrying the disease.
At the time of this writing, the total enumerated infection count is over 1,800. The total deaths are approaching 200. Other researchers are suggesting that this virus has a rapid mutation rate. That is particularly terrifying because it is what made the HIV-AIDS virus so difficult to treat.
At present, the World Health Organization had laid down a series of suggestions to help people avoid infection.
They advise that anyone who may come into contact with the virus should:
- Wash their hands frequently
- Maintain good sanitation on and around all frequently used objects and surfaces
- Avoid centers of mass travel such as airports
- Sneeze and cough into the elbow or a tissue
- Take immunity-boosting supplements like vitamin C
The source of the infection is believed to have come from a specific market in Wuhan, where live animals were kept in stalls for sale and trade. Researchers believe the virus came from either a snake or a bat. The initial cases of illness were reported in December 2019 by employees of the Wuhan market. That market is now shut down for the foreseeable future.
As health officials struggle to understand the virus and contain its progress, other researchers are asking even more startling questions. The shell of this virus is similar to the shell of a virus created in a university research lab in 2015 at the University of North Carolina. What’s more, there is a known military biological weapons lab in Wuhan China.
If these reports are true, it could have serious implications, not only for global health- but for relations between the US and China.
Big Brother Contestants Make How Much on the Show?!?
Big Brother has been a wildly popular, dramatic reality TV game show since 2000. Audiences are captivated by the twists, the turns, the strange alliances, and the betrayals. The show is based on a Dutch program with the same premise which also became wildly popular in Spain and Germany before the reboot came to America.
As the US version grew in popularity, the producers eventually made it possible for fans to watch the contestants on a non-live streaming video feed available 24 hours a day seven days a week. Yes, the contestants on Big Brother are now on display to be viewed by anyone in the world at every waking moment. How they avoid getting caught in their all-togethers or during toilet breaks, we don’t know. Maybe they have certain camera-safe areas to which they can retreat.
Later on, the house the Big Brother contestants live in was stripped of all communication devices- depriving them of contact with the outside world. That is- except for the live feeds the public has unfettered access to. So, if one of them was being held hostage, we suppose they could let us know.
So the question came up of, how much do the contestants really earn? By playing the game they have the chance to make friends, or enemies, become Internet sensations, and to win half a million dollars. But, given everything they have to put up with; being ripped out of their lives, possibly losing jobs, experiencing the anguish of betrayal- all while being on public display- do they get anything else?
According to a report by Reality Blurred, a site that follows the happenings of reality TV stars, programs, and related matters- the contestants “[…] receive $750 per week that they’re in the house.”
Any pay they receive while in the jury house is harder to account for since nothing about it appears on the contract. However, it is believed that contestants receive consolation prizes during their time out of the main house. It also seems reasonable that the consolation prizes received in the jury house should be worth at least $500 since keeping them away from other gainful employment for less than that would be near to slavery. (We’re looking at you, jury duty.)
However, while the big prize on Big Brother is a cool half-million on top of what the contestants earn as their weekly salary, in reality- they have much more to gain in Internet stardom.
Many former Big Brother players have gone on to lucrative careers as influencers on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and other social media sites. While any gains from that are unlikely to be as exhilarating as half a million in fast cash- the best of them certainly earn more than that over the long term.
So, it would appear that our curiosity MacGuffins on Big Brother are at least doing as well as someone earning minimum wage- while essentially fooling around Truman Show style.
Single Mom Irina Shayk, Happy Single
Those in the public spotlight seem to be an open book. Their every move seems to is covered by gossip sites. Their whereabouts are nearly always and it seems as if we are updated on who’s dating who and what luxurious vacation they are on.
That’s why it is surprising that Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper kept their relationship under wraps for so long, dating all the way back to 2015. The couple was first spotted together after the actor and model were first seen in 2015. Cooper split from Suki Waterhouse and Shayk ended her five-year relationship with soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.
The couple was first seen together at a Broadway show, then shortly thereafter, the White House Correspondents’ dinner. Things seemed to move quickly from there. Within months the couple moved in together, soon they announced they were expecting.
Work Gets in the Way:
Irina, who has been quiet about her relationship and breakup with Bradley Cooper, recently spoke up about their relationship.
The couple ended their relationship in 2019, on the heels of the release of the stars’ remake of a Star is Born. The on-screen chemistry between Bradley Cooper and his co-star, Stefani Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, sent tongues wagging. Rumors were raging that the two co-stars were in a relationship based on their pationate adaption of the film.
Irina set the record straight in some recent interviews about the end of their relationship. According to Shayk, the couple hadn’t been getting along for quite some time. After the baby was born, Shayk was hoping that Cooper would put their family first and slow down his busy working schedule. She was secretly hoping that after A Star is Born was released and the promotional tour was over, he would spend more time at home. That was not the case.
Irina, 33, was ready to settle into family life. This included getting married and more children. But the marriage never happened, and Cooper’s work schedule was as busy as ever.
Irina felt that her expectations weren’t met and she didn’t have the commitment level she wanted from Cooper. Shortly after the Award season in June 2019, the news broke that the couple had split. Irina had taken baby Lea and moved out of the couples Los Angeles home.At first, the separation was thought to be temporary. Both partners have decided that they are better apart than together.
The couple continues to co-parent their daughter, but it seems like the couple are happty being apart. They both seem to be quite content focusing on their child and carreers.
Irina recently said that “life without Cooper” and being a single mom is “new ground.” She also said that just because two people are great on their own, they are not always good together.
Irina is a strong woman, and while she often feels overwhelmed being a single-mom, she’s ready for the challenge. Both parents are dedicated to doing what is best for their child and are curently working on a visitation schedule.
