Nick Viall Defends Hannah B. After Ex Corinne Slams Her As Bachelorette

Defending her honor! Nick Viall’s ex-girlfriend Corinne Olympios may not be thrilled with ABC’s choice of Hannah Brown as the next Bachelorette, but the former Bachelor has other thoughts.

Viall, 38, commented on Us Weekly’s Instagram post in which Olympios said that “anyone” would’ve been a better choice as show lead.

“Hannah is going to prove many people wrong,” he wrote on Friday, May 10.

Viall Defends Hannah B Next Bachelorette

The businessman’s former flame, 27, was candid about her thoughts on the former beauty queen, 24, while speaking to Us earlier this week. “It’s just random. Like, why?” she asked about Brown’s new lead status. “It’s, like, there’s nothing there that would have made me be like, ‘I need to see her again on TV. I need to see her find love.’ Like, she wasn’t even someone that I was like, ‘I want her to find love.’”

She insisted: “Nobody loved her. When you hear someone being the Bachelor or the Bachelorette, it’s someone you loved and felt for on the season.”

The Bachelor in Paradise alum said she would still watch Brown’s search for companionship, however. “Am I interested in it? Absolutely not. Will I watch it? Absolutely yes,” she told Us.

Other Bachelor Nation alums have also expressed their doubt that the season 23 Bachelor contestant has what it takes to carry the show.

Season 13 Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay told Us in March that though she thinks Brown is “very, very nice,” she wasn’t her “first choice” or her “favorite.”

Ben Higgins, who starred on season 20 of the Bachelor, weighed in on Brown’s new venture to Us in April. “This is a little intimidating for her,” he said. “It’s a little scary, it’s a little wild and she isn’t prepped for it. Like, I don’t think she expected to be the Bachelorette, nor did she desire to be the Bachelorette after her season. So, this is all kind of a shock. … I’m really excited for her season.”

Season 11 Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe is in also in Brown’s corner: The “Off the Vine” podcast host sounded off in March about the backlash Brown received after she was announced as the Bachelorette: “People are giving her s–t, they’re being so mean to her, [saying] ‘She smiles too much,’ she said. “I’m like, really? That’s what you’re gonna pick her apart for? Smiling too much? What a psychopath! ‘Stop smiling, you psycho!’”

She concluded, “I’m so sorry that she was chosen as the Bachelorette and you don’t like her for these reasons that don’t make any sense to me, but give her a goddamn chance.”

Season 15 of The Bachelorette will premiere on ABC on Monday, May 13, at 8 p.m. ET.

Bobby Brown Slams Chris Rock’s ‘Tasteless’ Joke About Whitney’s Drug Use

Bobby Brown was not amused when Chris Rock made time over the weekend to post a tasteless joke about Whitney Houston’s drug use.

Rock shared a meme on social media of the late singer looking anything but enthusiastic about giving an interview. The image read: “Me sitting in a meeting that could’ve been an email,” but the comedian added his own caption: “Hurry up I got crack to smoke.”

Many commenters slammed the joke as “tasteless” and  “trash” and simply “not funny,” but  Brown noted, “During this time of women empowerment you chose to use your time to try and humiliate our QUEEN!!!”

He added, “I thought you was a friend of the family.”

Peep the post below.

Rock ultimately deleted the post.

Bobby and Whitney were married from 1992 to 2007 and had one child together, Bobbi Kristina, who died in 2015, three years after Houston drowned in a bathtub while reportedly acutely intoxicated from cocaine. Bobbi Kristina died in a similar manner to her mother.

Houston, who was 48 when she died, denied using crack cocaine during a 2002 interview with Diane Sawyer.

“I make too much money to ever smoke,” she said. “Let’s get that straight, k? We don’t do crack. We don’t do that. Crack is wack.”

Brown previously blasted Kanye West for paying $ 85,000 to license a photo of Houston’s drug den inside her  Atlanta home for the cover of Pusha-T’s album “Daytona.”

John Oliver Body Slams WWE Ahead of ‘WrestleMania’

John Oliver put aside politics for Sunday night’s episode of Last Week Tonight, and focused on professional wrestling, or as he calls it, the “only good excuse to wear a onesie.” “That’s right babies, you’re not pulling it off,” Oliver said.

While it may come as a surprise, Oliver claims he is a fan of wrestling and the WWE, which he finds “generally entertaining.” He’s not alone: The WWE has a billion fans on social media and, as per Oliver, earned $ 930.2 million in revenue last year. WrestleMania, WWE’s flagship event, rakes in more viewers than baseball’s World Series.

While WWE is fun to watch, especially compared to every other show that isn’t “a guy exploding through a table,” Oliver says there is a very dark side to the franchise, including the “shockingly high” death rates of pro wrestlers. The figure is so high—even compared to NFL players—that Oliver jokes it’s like “test pilots who lied on their resumes” or “zookeepers who aren’t going to just let some f—ing baboon talk to them like that.” While Oliver doesn’t get into specifics about the early death rate for wrestlers, he does note that WWE founder and owner Vince McMahon doesn’t provide health insurance or worker’s compensation for the stars. That’s because, according to Oliver, the WWE wrestlers are independent contractors who have exclusive contracts with the WWE and can’t work for anyone else, but are not technically employees of the company.

As Oliver explains, it’s because “McMahon plays an a—hole on TV, but is also an a–hole in real life.” According to Oliver, when you take “independent contractors working in a monopolized industry largely free from meaningful oversight who are able to be fired at any time, you wind up with huge potential for unsafe conduct.” To back up the claim, Oliver showed interviews with former wrestlers who pushed themselves to work when they were sick or injured, because if they didn’t they would not be paid and could potentially be fired. According to Oliver, the WWE is now worse than the NFL when it comes to taking care of its athletes. “When you have lost the moral high ground to the f—ing NFL you are morally subterranean,“ Oliver said.

There might be hope, though. Wrestling fans have become increasingly vocal and they genuinely care about the wrestling stars. If fans want McMahon to take better care of his employees—or even recognize them as employees—WrestleMania is coming up and, Oliver pointed out that it could be a good place to fight for change. “The event is live, the crowd is miked, they won’t be able to cut the chants out,” Oliver said. And then to make sure his point was clear “in the preferred language of wrestling of fans,” Oliver played a WWE-style ad pressing for “all your favorite wrestlers” having access to retirement accounts, workers compensation and family and medical leave.

Kim Kardashian Slams Theory She’s Selling Her Looks to Fashion Nova Ahead of Time: ‘I Don’t Support What These Companies Are Doing’ [Video]

Kim Kardashian has been accused of selling her high-end designer looks to fast-fashion brands like Fashion Nova to make a profit — but the reality star says that’s not the case.

Earlier this week, Kim wore a vintage one-of-a-king Mugler dress. The following day, a knock-off version appeared on Fashion Nova’s website with a waitlist ready for purchase.

According to Kim, Fashion Nova (and other fast-fashion retailers) simply work fast in effort to capitalize on what she wore.

There’s a twist though — days before Kim wore the dress, a Fashion Nova model posted pictures of herself at a photo shoot for the knock-off version. The photos on the screen appear to be labeled labeled ‘Kim Dress.’

 

View this post on Instagram

 

UPDATE: See stories for a screenshot of the date of the Capture One session (it’s labeled 02-14-19). Fashion Nova Mugler knockoff shot 4 days before Kim wore it on 02/18/19. Kim, you’ll never fess up to your sneaky lil collaborations, but we got all the receipts ?. • ????????? At some point recently, a fast fashion photo shoot happened featuring a vintage Mugler dress that @kimkardashian just happened to wear on Sunday night to the Hollywood Beauty Awards…and yes, it appears to be a real dress, not photoshop. Ahead of Fashion Nova releasing the dress at 9pm EST tonight, house model Yodit Yemane may or may not have accidentally leaked a story 2.5 hours earlier of photo options from her shoot featuring the Mugler replica. The file names were even labeled “Kim dress” while it’s now being called “Winning Beauty Cut Out Gown” lol. This begs the question: Did Fashion Nova whip up the dress overnight in their Los Angeles atelier after seeing Kim in it or is she peddling her vintage finds to mass retailers ahead of debuting them for a calculated, timely release? ????????? • ? : Getty • #kimkardashian #mugler #thierrymugler #manfredthierrymugler #bodycon #cutout #barelythere #strappy #straps #black #vintage #dress #velvet #fashionnova #wiwt #ootd #kuwtk #hollywood #beauty #kkwbeauty #kardashian #ecommerce #shady #smh #photoshoot #model #fashionmodel #dietprada

Still, Kim denies any relationship with Fashion Nova or any fast-fashion company and says she doesn’t support what they’re doing.

Stephen Colbert slams Trump’s new favorite term ‘presidential harassment’

TwitterFacebook

Donald Trump has ramped up his use of a new, favorite term and Stephen Colbert wasted no time calling bullshit.

The Late Show host noted Trump’s use of the catchphrase “presidential harassment” to describe investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“Presidential harassment: It’s like sexual harassment, only the Republicans take it seriously,” Colbert said around the five-minute mark of Thursday’s monologue.

Colbert also noted Trump’s recent tweet reiterating the term, in which the president wrote, “The Republicans never did this to President Obama.”

“Have you been huffing the Aqua Net?” said Colbert. “We were all alive then, none of us were in a coma. All they did was investigate him — the IRS, the ATF, the ACA, Solyndra, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. They didn’t subpoena his taxes, can you guess why? Hint: He released them.Read more…

NeNe Leakes Slams ‘Manipulative’ Lisa Vanderpump, Says She Stole Her Restaurant Location for PUMP [Video]

The other ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ seem to have issues with Lisa Vanderpump these days, but NeNe Leakes is throwing some Atlanta drama in the mix.

While interviewing with Jenny McCarthy, NeNe revealed that she once thought of opening a restaurant in West Hollywood in the same location Lisa opened PUMP.

According to NeNe, she called Lisa to ask her opinion on the spot since she knew Lisa had SUR just down the street. Lisa allegedly talked NeNe out of getting the spot — only to turn around and snatch it up for herself.

Dean Unglert Slams Bibiana Julian’s Claims That Peter Kraus Wronged Her

He said, she said! Bachelor Winter Games alum Dean Unglert is calling BS on his former costar Bibiana Julian’s claims that Peter Kraus stayed with her in Florida for days and then left without a word.

“Bibs you know I love you but I talked to Pete right after he got home from Florida and know for a fact this is not how it happened,” the “Help! I Suck at Dating” podcast host, 27, wrote on Twitter on Friday, January 25.

Hours earlier, Julian, 31, called out Krause, 33, after he denied having a relationship with the former Miami Dolphins cheerleader.

The Bachelorette season 13 runner-up told the Chicago Tribune in an interview published on Tuesday, January 22, that he wasn’t on a date with the Bachelor in Paradise alum after being spotted with her at a Miami Heat basketball game in December.

“So I know Bibiana from a charity event we did together and told her I was coming down to Miami,” he told the publication. “I was like, ‘Hey, I got basketball tickets, you want to go?’ So it’s weird. I don’t really go out on public dates anymore for that reason.”

“Charity event” – you mean staying at my place for 4 days during the busiest week in Miami and leaving without saying good bye or thank you?” Julian tweeted in response on Friday.

She followed it up with a second tweet, clarifying, “To be clear, I’m not bitter just irks me when you go out of your way to be nice to someone and they just take advantage!”

Julian had previously shut rumors that the two were an item following their outing, telling Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti on a December 17 episode of their podcast, “Almost Famous: In Depth,” “Nothing is going on with Peter Kraus and I. Absolutely nothing.”

Still, she implied that they were more than friendly, adding, “I’m just going to clarify — and I don’t know if he’ll be happy with it — but, like, him and I actually connected right after I got back from Paradise, so that’s kind of, like, when it started off. We stayed friends and then he was visiting Miami and I was, like, ‘Why don’t we go to a Heat game?’”

The ABC star also confirmed that she has since moved on with a new mystery man at the time “Nobody knows him and it’s not Peter Kraus,” she teased.

Kraus has yet to respond to Julian or Unglert’s tweets.

Kate Wright slams troll who criticised posh holiday with Rio’s kids and says ‘money can’t bring back loved ones and heal grief’

KATE Wright has hit back at a cruel troll who criticised her swanky holiday with husband Rio Ferdinand’s three children.

The former Towie star won praise from fans as she defended the family trip on Rio’s Instagram page.

Rio was criticised after posting this holiday photo

The 38-year-old football pro posted a photo of the group enjoying a fancy meal at 5.8 Undersea restaurant in the Maldives – an all-glass eating establishment in the middle of the ocean.

He captioned the snap: “Lunch in the sea. What a place with the family. I was dribbling at this point.”

The picture racked up tens of thousands of likes and hundreds of comments – but some trolls couldn’t resist leaving snarky remarks.

Kate, 27, hit back at one user who’d posted a negative now-deleted comment on the snap.

She wrote: “Money doesn’t make looking after three children that have lost their mum easier.

“Yes we can have nice holidays but money can’t bring back loved ones and heal grief.

“Looking after children and caring for them comes from the heart, not from the bank.”

Kate was inundated with praise for the way that she had handled the troll, with one writing: “What a moving response. Now that’s wisdom.”

The group have been enjoying a Christmas holidays in the Maldives

Another added: “Well said, Kate. Some people will always be jealous and money-orientated.

“I’m sure most people would swap money for loved ones.”

A third wrote: “Well said… You have made those kids happy, be proud of what you both have achieved.

“Such a hard time for anyone who has lost their mum or dad.”

Kate and Rio got engaged two months ago
Instagram

Since arriving at the private resort in the Maldives, Kate has posted several photos to document her holiday with  Rio and his three children.

Kate admitted that she was “feeling blessed” as she shared a video of the family on a boat surrounded by dolphins, and Rio has shared several snaps and videos too.

To mark their Christmas holiday, the sportsman shared a cute photo of Kate and his children posing in Santa hats against a backdrop of blue sky, the crystal clear ocean and pure white sand on Thursday.

He captioned the snap: “Bit delayed on the Christmas post, been offline for a few days! loads of Love from us (the nutters)”.


In October, Rio and Kate got engaged after two years of dating – three years after his late wife Rebecca Ellison’s death.

Rio asked Kate to be his wife as his three children, Lorenz, nine-year-old Tate, and Tia, seven, watched during a family holiday – with Rio later admitting that the children had been involved in his proposal plan.

The star’s late wife passed away following a battle with breast cancer in 2015 – but gave her blessing for her husband to marry again.

Azealia Banks Slams Offset For Cardi B Ambush And 21 Savage Supports Him During A Concert And Gets The Crowd To Sing ‘Cardi, Take Offset Back’

It was recently reported that Offset managed to embarrass Cardi even more during one of her concerts. The man showed up on stage during one of her shows to beg her once again to take him back.

People understood that he had the best intentions, but Cardi was not impressed at all, and it’s quite understandable.

After doing this, Offset posted a message on social media in which he was saying that he felt like a public apology was necessary after his cheating became a public matter as well.

This message did not impress fans at all, and they slammed him saying that he is only sorry because he got caught.

More celebrities got themselves involved in the drama and supported Cardi B or Offset. For instance, Azealia Banks also chose to speak on the recent events surrounding Cardi B, and Offset.

‘I think it’s messed up that men think it’s okay to desecrate her workspace with their opinions of what she should be doing. No clue why think it’s okay to just barge in on women when they feel like it,’ she posted on Instagram.

She continued and wrote that ‘If it were the other way around they would be bashing the woman saying she’s no good, calling her a hoe, etc. etc…but since it’s the man they expect it to be accepted as part of his hip-hop persona and everyone will rush to defend them.’

Another rapper, 21 Savage seems to be ‘team Offset’ because he got the crowd to ask Cardi to take her hubby back during a concert.

21 Savage got everyone chanting, ‘Cardi B, Take Offset Back!’

What do you think Cardi should do?

‘Pump Rules’ Cast Slams James After He Embarrasses Brittany at SUR 

The cast of Vanderpump Rules has some choice words for their costar James Kennedy following his performance during the season 7 premiere of the Bravo hit.

“That’s pretty much what he does. That’s his MO. He needs to bring up things that happened years ago because there’s nothing for him to talk about,” Jax Taylor told Us Weekly exclusively when asked about James rapping about the former SUR bartender’s indiscretion with Faith Stowers in front of Jax’s fiancée, Brittany Cartwright, during the Monday, December 3, episode of Vanderpump Rules. “He doesn’t really have much going on in his life. There’s nothing there. There’s no substance to him. It gets to the point where it’s like, ‘What else do you got man?’ You’ve got nothing else anymore. We don’t really talk to him much anymore.”

Brittany, who accepted Jax’s proposal in the premiere, noted to Us that she has been “nothing but nice” to James, so he had no reason to embarrass her in front of her colleagues and the guests at SUR.

“I was crying and, like, ran out,” the Kentucky native explained. “He tries to say that that was about Jax, but Jax wasn’t there. I was the one that was there, I was the one that was embarrassed in front of the entire crowd, not Jax. So him trying to be like, ‘That was about Jax,’ that doesn’t make sense. That’s no ground to stand on because I was the one who got hurt that day.”

Even Lala Kent, who used to be the DJ’s only ally on the Bravo series, is no longer friends with James after he went after her close friends and fiancé Randall Emmett. 


“I guess, fortunately, it hasn’t affected my life in a negative way, not being friends with him. So I’m good,” Lala told Us. “He has always been an extremely verbally abusive friend to me and I always shook it off because I knew that it was coming from a hurt place and I knew it really only happened when he was under the influence. But when you start attacking someone who I’m going to spend the rest of my life with, you might as well be attacking my mother as well.”

“It was just something that I couldn’t bounce back from,” she continued. “And now the people that I have in my world like Katie [Maloney], Kristen [Doute], Stassi [Schroeder], a friendship with James would never work because the people in my world don’t care for him. So I’ve moved on.”

Regarding the season premiere drama with James, Scheana Shay simply added, “Nothing with James surprises me.”

Vanderpump Rules airs on Bravo Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.

Chairman Of Temple University’s Board Slams Marc Lamont Hill For Comments About Israel

Activist and author Marc Lamont Hill received backlash after what some are calling controversial comments about Israel. CNN fired him and Temple University originally spoke out saying “he has a constitutionally protected right to express his opinion as a private citizen.” However, now the board chair of Temple  University is speaking out and he is slamming the professor of media studies and urban education

SEE ALSO: Texas Cop Shoots Unarmed Black Man For Entering His Own Truck

Chairman of Temple University’s board Patrick O’Connor, who is also a lawyer, said on CNN, “It should be made clear that no one at Temple is happy with his comments. Free speech is one thing. Hate speech is entirely different.” He continued, “I’m not happy. The board’s not happy. The administration’s not happy. People wanted to fire him right away. We’re going to look at what remedies we have.”

Marc Lamont Hill was tenure so it will be difficult to fire him.

That said, in an email to The Washington Times, Temple University said, “Marc Lamont Hill has been quoted extensively over the last 24 hours. Marc Lamont Hill does not represent Temple University and his views are his own. However, we acknowledge that he has a constitutionally protected right to express his opinion as a private citizen.”

At the United Nations on Wednesday, Hill said in a speech, “We have an opportunity to not just offer solidarity in words but to commit to political action, grassroots action, local action, and international action that will give us what justice requires and that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea.”

He continued, “Contrary to western mythology, Black resistance to American apartheid did not come purely through Gandhi and nonviolence, rather slave revolts and self-defense and tactics otherwise divergent from Dr. King or Mahatma Gandhi were equally important to preserving safety and attaining freedom. If we are to operate in true solidarity with the Palestinian people, we must allow the Palestinian people the same range of opportunity and political possibility.”

Soledad O’brien Slams Cnn For Giving ‘White Supremacists’ Airtime

Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien slammed the network on Sunday for giving airtime to “racists” and “white supremacists” in an effort to boost ratings.

Her comments were in response to a viral Twitter thread created by Shareblue’s Oliver Willis that bashed CNN hosts for calling out “abhorrent behavior” and then inviting commentators on their shows who spew such behavior.

“They give a platform ― and their credibility ― to racists/white supremacists/ all in the name of ‘hearing them out,’ (which is a ratings ploy btw),” wrote O’Brien, who left CNN in 2013 after 10 years with the network.

The veteran journalist reiterated her CNN shade on Monday, tweeting that she had expressed the same criticism in the past.

“It was true then and remains true today,” she wrote.

Twitter user Ajamu Baraka noted: “CNN giving air time to racist and white supremacist is nothing new. During the 2016 campaign me and Jill Stein constantly pointed out how the major news outlets were giving millions of dollars of free time to Trump’s white supremacy.

It’s unclear whether a specific show segment inspired Willis to criticize the network, as he expressed online: “my major problem with how cnn operates is their anchors/hosts want to have their cake and eat it too. they want credit for calling out abhorrent behavior but when they enable the same behavior they insist theyre just “hearing them out.”

He appeared to mock what he believes to be CNN’s strategy: “Gassing toddlers and putting babies in cages is disgusting and beyond the pale! our next guest will now defend those things i just said are reprehensible, because every point of view is viable,” he wrote.

Back in 2016 when O’Brien appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” she pointed out how hate speech is being normalized by giving airtime to Trump surrogates, who oftentimes double as white supremacists, per urbanmecca.net.

“If you look at Hillary Clinton’s speech [on why Trump’s policies are racist] she basically pointed out that what Donald Trump has done — actually quite well — has normalized White supremacy,” O’Brien stated. “I think she made a very good argument, almost like a lawyer. Here are ways in which he has actually worked to normalize conversations that many people find hateful.”

“I’ve seen White supremacists being interviewed because they are Trump delegates. And they do a five-minute segment, the first minute or so talking about what they believe as White supremacists. So you have normalized that,” she explained.

Prince William Slams Tech Leaders’ Failure to Combat ‘Cruelty and Intolerance’

WPA Pool

Prince William has accused tech companies of hypocrisy, saying they’re falling short in tackling cyberbullying and other social problems while reveling in a “self-image grounded in their positive power.”

He told tech leaders they must “fight back against the intolerance and cruelty that has been brought to the surface by your platforms.”

In a surprisingly political speech, William called on social-media companies to “reject the false choice of profits over values” and issued a coruscating condemnation of their social impact, saying, “On every challenge they face—fake news, extremism, polarization, hate speech, trolling, mental health, privacy, and bullying—our tech leaders seem to be on the back foot.”

SNL’s Pete Davidson Slams Kanye West For Pro-Trump Rant [Video]

Last week, Kanye West delivered a pro-Trump speech on SNL, and on Saturday night, the show responded via Pete Davidson, who clowned the rapper’s off-air MAGA rant at the end of the “Weekend Update” segment.

“So many times I talk to a white person and [they] say, ‘How could you like Trump, he’s racist?’ Well, if I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago,” West told the Saturday Night Live audience. He also pledged to run for president in 2020.

Pete encouraged West to take his meds — “Davidson admitted that he’s on medication as well — and capped off the segment by donning a “Make Kanye 2006 Again” hat,” Page Six writes.

On Saturday, Davidson called West’s speech “one of the worst, most awkward things I’ve ever seen here. We all had to stand behind him,” he continued as video of the speech played, “I’m on the left [his head is down in the video], and then I’m like, ‘I want a career,’ so I leave” the stage.

He also addressed West’s claim that “they” tried to “bully” him out of wearing the MAGA hat.

“So Kanye was wearing a ‘MAGA’ hat, and he started by saying people backstage tried to bully him into not wearing it,” Davidson said. “He wore it all week. Nobody told him not to wear it — I wish would have suggested that it might upset some people, like your wife, or, like, every black person, ever.”

“Kanye is a genius,” he continued, “but a musical genius, like Joey Chestnut is a hot-dog eating genius. I don’t want to hear Joey Chestnut’s opinions about things that aren’t hot dog related!”

Davidson then asked West to resume taking his medication.

“Kanye, I know you’re like, ‘Yo, this is the real me, I’m off the meds’,” which West has said on at least two occasions. “Take ‘em! There’s no shame in the medicine game! I’m on ‘em — take ‘em! if I ever got on a plane and the pilot said, ‘I just want you all to know this is the real me flying,’” I’d jump out!

“Being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass,” he concluded. “Seriously: one time I stopped taking my meds, and I bit my mom. But it’s all good because I bought her a house.”

He finished by putting on a “Make Kanye 2006 Again” hat… watch the clip above.
