Britney Spears: Exercising Herself to Death to Please Sam Asghari?

As you will see in the steamy video below, Britney Spears is keeping fit with the help of her boyfriend, Sam Asghari.

But … has she become too preoccupied with health and fitness?

A new report claims that Britney is keeping her body in perfect condition because she's afraid of losing her young, hot boyfriend.

RadarOnline reports that Britney is consumed with a fitness addiction in an effort to maintain her relationship with Sam Asghari.

The source acknowledges that Britney "looks amazing and she’s got her best body ever."

She sure does and she sure does, respectively. So … what's the problem?

"But she’s letting her obsession with diet and fitness rule her life to an unhealthy degree."

Sometimes, there can be a slippery slope between healthy habits and a destructive perseveration.

"She’s so self-conscious and can’t go five seconds without talking about cleanses or weight training."

The source continues to express concern, saying:

"Even though she looks incredible, she still Photoshops her selfies all the time."

Lots of people touch up their selfies, but it looks like this person is suggesting that it's an obsession.

"It’s as if she’s on a weird mission to constantly look picture perfect."

That also ties in with rumors that Britney got a boob job recently.

"She’s always scrutinizing her reflection in the mirror and sometimes takes 50 photos before she’ll post one to Instagram."

Is that an unhealthy preoccupation or just careful use of social media?

The source also claims that Britney is projecting her alleged fixation with fitness onto others.

This has reportedly taken the form of her discouraging others from partying and indulging themselves on tour.

More to the point, it sounds like some of her loved ones are concerned that she's denying herself.

"People are happy that Britney is taking care of herself, but now it’s getting in the way of her having fun."

That is a somewhat troubling report.

Is it possible that the source is jumping to conclusions, though?

Britney has always been dedicated to her personal fitness. Her body is part of her brand, and has been since she rose to fame as a teen sex symbol.

It's true that she's older than Sam Asghari, who is 24 years old.

But while he's definitely young and hot, she is not only intensely attractive, but she's Britney Freaking Spears. Despite rumors to the contrary, she has a good head on her shoulders and knows her worth.

Most people take multiple photos before choosing which picture to post on social media.

The fact that Britney posts makeup-free selfies should be enough to show that fears that she's obsessed with looking more perfect than she actually is are probably unfounded.

As for her relationship with Sam Asghari, whom she began dating about a year ago, things are looking good for the two of them.

Just last week, Britney brought Sam as her date to the GLAAD Awards.

Social media shows that the two of them share a love of fitness activities, but that doesn't mean that she's depriving herself of joy.

Playing tennis with your boyfriend isn't exactly wallowing in misery.

And neither is dancing, which is what the two of them are doing in this steamy video.

Watch and decide for yourself how Britney is faring:

Luann de Lesseps Defends Herself Against Blackface Backlash

Luann de Lesseps has walked smack dab into yet another scandal.

But we guess the reality star should be grateful that she didn’t stumble into it drunkenly.

About three months after de Lesseps got arrested in Florida for some very wasted behavior, the veteran Bravo personality has once again found herself the subject of backlash.

On Wednesday night’s Real Housewives of New York City premiere, Luann attended a Halloween party dressed like legendary singer Diana Ross.

(Yes, the episode was filmed way back in October.)

It was a unique costume, that’s for sure, but it didn’t take long for folks on the Internet to find a pretty big problem with it:

de Lesseps is white. Ross is black.

The former rocked a revealing dress and a giant afro wig for the occasion, and also clearly darkened her skin in some way.

And it was this latter move that has sparked an outcry of “BLACKFACE!” from many viewers and social media users.

(Blackface was a popular form of theatrical make-up used predominantly by non-black performers in the 19th century and early 20th century; it contributed, both then and now, to the spread of various racial stereotypes.)

Aware of the chatter surrounding her ensemble, Luann explained to Entertainment Tonight that she didn’t actually paint her face black.

“I had makeup on, but not anything that would make me look — I had like, tanning cream on,” she told Nischelle Turner, adding that she doesn’t agree with the criticism that has come her way as a result of the costume.

However, “I get it,” she notes.

de Lesseps first heard from critics of this look back in November when she shared the above photo on Instagram.

But the issue has now come back up due to the aforementioned Season 10 premiere.

Appearing after the episode aired on Watch What Happens Live, Luann said she “horrified,” by the negative reaction, adding:

“I never meant to hurt anybody’s feelings. I love Diana Ross and I totally respect Diana Ross. It was really kind of a tribute to her, and it was Halloween.”

At some point, perhaps, celebrity will realize that dressing up as other celebrities isn’t really a tribute of any kind.

Kourtney Kardashian learned this lesson the hard way back when she dressed up like Michael Jackson for Halloween.

“I had bronzer on that I wear normally like the rest of my skin. I’m tan, like right now,” de Lesseps also told Andy Cohen on air, prior to apologizing for real:

“I didn’t add anything to or would ever, ever, ever dream of doing a blackface, ever. I’m very sorry to everyone out there if I offended anyone.”

And just to drive her point home, Luanna added the following on Twitter:

“I would like to clear the air, I love and respect Diana Ross, this was my tribute to her I was showing my sincere admiration.

“I in no way altered my skin color and I did not mean to offend anyone.”

We believe her.

We aren’t all that mad anymore.

But it’s a pretty simple lesson for all to heed in the end:

If you are white, do not dress up for Halloween like a black person. Case closed. It isn’t that complicated.

Stephen Belafonte: Mel B is a Drug Addict Who Gave HERSELF Those Bruises

The controversial saga of Mel B’s expensive divorce continues. This is an unpleasant ride with stories of a blackmail sex tape, physical abuse, and financial exploitation.

Once again, Stephen Belafonte claims that he never abused Mel. But he now argues that he can account for her history of injuries.

Because he claims that she’s a drug addict who injured herself.

This ugly divorce is getting even uglier, folks.

TMZ reports that Belafonte accuses Mel B of being a drug addict and an alcoholic.

And he’s reportedly claiming that these alleged substance abuse issues are the real culprits behind her history of troubling injuries.

He claims that she would walk into doors and overdose, resulting in bruising and hospital visits.

He says that she would try to cover for it by claiming domestic violence.

Finally, at the same time as he’s making these arguments, he’s lobbying for visitation with his stepdaughter.

Several years ago, fans noticed bruising on Mel B’s body when she appeared on television.

Given the locations of the bruises, many fans recognized them as what they’d expect from a victim of domestic violence. They voiced their concerns.

Mel B replied that Belafonte would never hit her

That’s what anyone would say if they’re not be abused. Of course, it’s also exactly what you’d expect to hear from someone who’s being abused by their partner but trying to make it work.

Now, however, the couple is embroiled in an ugly divorce, and Mel B had admitted that she was a victim of his alleged physical abuse for years.

She also says that he used his influence over her to force her to do a number of things, such as recording a threesome sex tape and making financial investments as he saw fit, whittling away at her fortune.

Belafonte has filed legal papers in an attempt to lobby for visitation with his stepdaughter, Angel.

Angel’s biological father is Eddie Murphy, but Angel has been with Belafonte for almost all of her life.

Belafonte claims that Mel B has “concocted” these accusations of abuse in an effort to turn Angel against him.

So now, on top if his demands for spousal support which Mel B dismisses as astronomical, Belafonte is demanding time with his stepdaughter.

And he says that all of Mel B’s injuries can be explained by her alleged substance abuse.

Belafonte refers to a 2014 incident in which he allegedly bashed Mel B’s head against a door.

He says that what actually happened is that Mel B overdosed and was rushed to the hospital.

The bruises and other injuries were then, in his narrative, the results of her IV needles and injuries that she somehow sustained at the hands of an EKG machine.

Out of embarrassment or some other unknown motive, she then tried to cover for the incident by claiming that he had abused her.

At least, that’s Belafonte’s version of events.

He also says that she will be so day-drunk that she walks into walls or will squat down and urinate on the couch in front of their children.

Mel B has claimed, on top of his alleged abuse of her, that he showed the children videos of Daesh beheading prisoners in captured cities.

He claims that this is untrue, and that he has never even searched for these videos.

It looks like they’re both making some claims that might be backed or refuted by evidence, such as testimony from hospital employees and perhaps some computer forensics experts.

Some evidence might be more ambiguous.

Mel B says she can prove that Belafonte made blackmail tapes. Belafonte says that his recordings prove that he didn’t force her into the three-way relationship because they show her as a willing participant.

This whole thing is a mess.

We can all hope that the divorce settlement is a just one and that, whatever happens, the children have the best possible outcome.

Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Did Omarosa Save Herself?

Brandi Glanville threw a hinky vote towards Shannon on Friday’s eviction episode of Celebrity Big Brother. 

This immediately cast a dark cloud over her life in the Big Brother house. 

“I’m feeling very sad and very disappointed,” Ari revealed to viewers at the top of the latest hour. “I’m not sure I can trust Brandi anymore.”

Ari wasted no time in telling their allies all about Brandi’s vote. It was shocking just how quickly everyone turned on the former The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star.

Back at the HOH competition, Omarosa knew she was the next big target in the house, and she wanted to fight to stay in the game. 

“Shannon has just been evicted,” Omarosa revealed in a  confessional. “Which means the house will be looking for a new target. I want to make sure that target is not Lady O.”

The houseguests battled it out and held on to a wall in the first big endurance battle of the season. It came down to Brandi, Omarosa, and James. 

This had the potential to put Brandi back on good terms with her alliance. It’s not like they would have trashed her if she had the power to take any of them out, right?

Unfortunately for Brandi, it was not meant to be. She dropped off of the wall, and Omarosa and James got talking. Omarosa recognized that she and James were in a similar spot in the game. 

She promised she would keep him off the block because she had her mind set on some other targets. This was enough for James to let go and throw the competition to the former Apprentice star. 

After the competition, Brandi is put on blast by her fellow allies. They figured Brandi was trying to secure a jury vote from Shannon. Jury management is everything, you guys!

Brandi decided she was done with everyone and claimed she wanted out of the alliance. 

“You’re the one that did something; we didn’t do it,” Ross tells her. “We need a second to digest this.”

What followed was Brandi isolating herself from her allies because she was mad. In her eyes, she hadn’t done anything wrong. Shannon still went home. 

Her allies realized they needed the numbers so they had to go and make things right with Brandi. They did so, and all seemed to go well.

 
Omarosa, Celebrity Big Brother Season 1

While this was going down, Omarosa was busy wheeling and dealing to craft an alliance with her, Metta, James, and Mark. Omarosa is after the pairs, so even with the looming veto twist, she should be able to break one of them up. 

“If Mark is a floater, then Metta is an oversized rubber ducky,” she revealed. “If I don’t tie him down he’ll float away.”

Omarosa chats with Marissa and Ari, and the two ladies throw Brandi’s name out there. Yes, the alliance clearly is not in good shape. 

Omarosa nominated Ross and Brandi for eviction. 

Who do you want to leave?

Hit the comments. 

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight on CBS.

Jill Messick, Ex-Rose McGowan Manager, Kills Herself; Family Blames Media and Harvey Weinstein

Horrible news out of Hollywood this week:

Jill Messick, a former Miramax producer who once managed actress Rose McGowan, committed suicide suicide on Wednesday, her family has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

She was 50 years old.

This is terribly sad – but it may have gone largely unnoticed by the mainstream press if Messick’s family had not released a pointed statement in response to the tragedy.

Released by Messick’s loved ones to The Hollywood Reporter, the statement places the blame for this suicide on Harvey Weinstein… McGowan herself… and members of the press for how they covered the #MeToo movement.

Weinstein, of course, is the former head of Miramax who has been accused of sexual assault by dozens of women.

McGowan has claimed for years that she is one of these women, while she’s now a leading voice for the #MeToo movement, which seeks to empower victims of rape and misconduct.

Messick, meanwhile, represented McGowan in 1997, at the time she says she was raped by Weinstein.

The late producer/manager later took an executive position at Miramax, then led by Weinstein.

“Jill was victimized by our new culture of unlimited information sharing and a willingness to accept statement as fact,” reads the emotional statement.

“She became collateral damage in an already horrific story.”

The full statement, which is available at The Hollywood Reporter, goes on to say that Messick was devastated after the film mogul’s attorney released an email in which Messick defended Weinstein.

“The speed of disseminating information has carried mistruths about Jill as a person, which she was unable and unwilling to challenge,” it says.

Messick’s relatives acknowledge that McGown told her about an incident with Weinstein…

… but they insist that Messick “stood up on Rose’s behalf” and “alerted her bosses to the horrific experience which Rose suffered.”

Continues the statement:

“She opted not to add to the feeding frenzy, allowing her name and her reputation to be sullied despite having done nothing wrong.

“She never chose to be a public figure; that choice was taken away from her.”

The family also mentions that Messick was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

After discussing with Messick and her management team what transpired with Weinstein, McGown is on record as saying she did not feel much support.

In their message to the public on Thursday, Messick’s loved ones criticized journalists for publishing the aforementioned ​correspondence between Messick and Weinstein.

“We must take a moment to consider the ramifications and consequences of what we say and what we do,” the family’s statement reads, concluding:

“Words matter. Someone’s life may depend on it.”

McGowan, for her part, has been on a mission to reveal the truth about Weinstein, the culture in Hollywood and everything else related to this ongoing sexual harassment scandal in entertainment.

It has thus far ended the careers of such A-Listers as Matt Lauer, Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K., among MANY others.

Weinstein’s attorney, Ben Brafman, previously responded to McGowan’s allegations in a statement to People Magazine that reads:

“Mr. Weinstein denies Rose McGowan’s allegations of non-consensual sexual contact and it is erroneous and irresponsible to conflate claims of inappropriate behavior and consensual sexual contact later regretted, with an untrue claim of rape.”

His spokesperson also has said that McGowan “chose to demand money” from the producer and worked and appeared with him later in her career.

On January 30, Weinstein’s lawyers released an email in which Messick said McGowan had told her she got into a hot tub with Weinstein “consensually” yet “regretted” it.

Her family here says the document was released without Messick’s consent.

“Harvey’s desperate attempt to vindicate himself, was devastating for her. It broke Jill.”

May Jill Messick rest in peace.

Kim Kardshian Posts Topless Pic, Compares Herself to Anna Nicole Smith

Earlier this month, Kim Kardashian welcomed her third child.

You’d think someone with Kim’s wealth and influence could enjoy a few weeks off to focus on her new baby, but no!

Possibly in a bid to cement her status as the living embodiment of American values, Kim is demonstrating that she doesn’t believe in maternity leave!

Yes, that’s Kim totally topless on Instagram.

It might not be your idea of work, but when you’re a Kardashian this is what punching a clock looks like.

As usual, Kim is being shamed for posing nude by people who would apparently balk at showing of their flawless physiques in exchange for fame and fortune.

“Your a work of art but you should probably put on some clothes,” wrote one conflicted and gramatically-challenged fan.

“After 3 kids you would think she would stop posting photos like this,” commented one of the internet’s many rabid mom-shamers.

It’s the same nonsense every time Kim blesses us with a pic like this.

Fortunately, it doesn’t like she’ll be easing up on the racy selfies anytime soon.

This time, the haters even stepped their game up a notch and engaging in the truly repugnant behavior of chastising Kim for using a surrogate.

“Now I know the real reason why you hired someone to have your baby,” wrote one follower who’s clearly just the worst.

We’re not even sure what that’s supposed to mean, but we’re 100 percent sure the person who wrote it has no friends.

Anyway, this is one of the rare occasions where we actually agree with Kim’s critics on one thing.

But it has nothing to do with her appearance.

Anna Nicole Smith

Kim posted this photo today with caption reading simply, “Muse.”

For our younger readers, that’s Anna Nicole Smith, a deceased model who’s as well know for her tragic life and death as for her meteoric rise to stardom.

Unlike some of the commenters on the pic, we’re not gonna shame a dead woman who struggled mightily throughout her life, but we are somewhat side-eyeing Kim’s choice of muse.

It’s one thing when a sullen teen idolizes a self-destructive blonde who checked out early, but it’s a little weird coming from a 36-year-old mom and successful career woman like Kim.

Our culture is just now realizing it’s pretty messed up to romanticize the premature death of Marilyn Monroe; let’s not subject Anna to the same mistreatment, mmm-kay?

Kylie Jenner: How Long She’ll Hide Herself & Her Baby!

Okay, so not only is Kylie Jenner pregnant, but we finally know how the big Kylie pregnancy reveal is happening on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Once that two-part special airs, she’ll finally be able to go out in public and let people see that she’s pregnant. … Right?

Maybe not. As it turns out, Kylie is reportedly still determined to remain in seclusion until the baby’s born.

Though the entire planet has known about Kylie’s pregnancy since September, Kylie — who used to dominate social media with selfies and updates on her life — hasn’t confirmed it.

Or even allowed herself to be seen — really seen — in ages.

At first, we wondered if it was just because she wanted to do a big reveal. We even wondered if it was some sort of revenge, if staying mum about her pregnancy was a way of getting back at her nosy fans.

One heartbreaking reports claims that Kylie Jenner cannot stop eating.

That’s normal for a pregnancy, but, if it’s true, it must be a nightmare for a reality star. Especially one based in Southern California who built a lot of her brand on having a desirable look.

Whatever the true cause — and we’re sure that a number of factors are involved — reports have been claiming for a while now that Kylie Jenner plans to hide until she gives birth.

HollywoodLife reports that Kylie Jenner plans to remain in hiding … and they describe how she reportedly plans to share her baby with the world.

Kylie wants to keep the worst kept secret still very vague until she actually has the baby.”

That much seems clear.

“She doesn’t want anyone to know when she will be at the hospital and in labor, she doesn’t want anyone to get the shot of the baby.”

We’ve heard absolute nightmare situations about famous people being stalked at hospitals and even followed by helicopters.

Kylie’s reason for wanting zero photos of her baby after the birth is for a much more practical reason.

“Because she would like to sell that photo and she doesn’t want it to be a part of the show until the baby is actually born.”

Kylie has a very specific role model in mind for how she rolls out information and media about her soon-to-be child.

“But she is going to move forward pretty much the same way how Kim has dealt with it with her children.”

Meaning, specifically:

“Revealing things very limitedly or not at all.”

Honestly, it makes sense that Kylie would follow Kim’s example, here. Is Kourtney the more experienced mother? Of course.

But Kim’s been having children over the past few years, at the height of Kardashian fame. Kourtney is world-famous, but she’s never taken center-stage like Kim or Kylie.

HollywoodLife‘s source goes on to talk about how Kylie is enjoying keeping this private.

“She doesn’t have many things for herself and with this being her first baby, she wants to make it as special and real as it possibly can be.”

That seems to contradict her plans to sell a photo of her baby … but whatever.

“And then make everything about her private life take the turn to public life.”

So she’ll, what, gradually let people know more?

“She wants to give something to herself before she gives it up to the world.”

That is very sweet. But … is it the whole truth?

We’re leery of latching onto an individual report and swallowing it hook. line, and sinker. But we’ve heard a lot about Kylie’s alleged weight gain during her pregnancy and about her apparent body image issues.

Considering her history (she wasn’t always considered “hot,” folks … and Kylie went through her own transformation, not unlike Kourtney’s, during her teen years and many believe that it wasn’t just puberty), it’s easy to believe that Kylie’s freaking out about pregnancy weight, from hormones and from eating.

We hope that she’s able to calm down and get some perspective by the time that the baby arrives.

And Kylie’s baby is due in less than a month.

Mariah Carey on New Year’s Eve: Did She Redeem Herself?

We really should have known, people.

We should have known a year ago at this time that 2017 would be a debacle, considering the way it kicked off:

With a Mariah Carey performance from Times Square that was, to put it simply and bluntly, the worst thing we had ever seen or heard.

We're very sorry to remind you of what transpired, but refresh your memory of the debacle below:

The sound was off. Mariah clearly didn't know the words. It was a mess.

Carey proceeded to blame anyone but herself for what happened, but after seemingly hiding from her transgression and not taking responsibility for her total failure… the legendary singer went out and faced the music last night.

Literally.

She took to the Times Square stage once again on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.

This time around, Twitter did not react with laughter and vitriol.

The artist performed two songs and remembered the lyrics to both.

The iconic diva wowed with an impressive medley of "Vision of Love" and "Hero" and even made a quip at her own expense, telling the audience that the night was a "disaster" because she didn't have her hot tea.

"I'm just going to take a sip of tea, if they'll let me," Carey said, turning away from the crowd and adding:

"They told me there would be tea. Oh, it's a disaster. OK, well, we'll just have to rough it. I'm going to be just like everybody else.

"There'll be no hot tea."

Indeed, it was FREEZING in New York City.

Was Mariah's performance red hot?

Not really. She definitely lost a bit from her prime.

But the bar was set so low to conclude 2016 that as long as Carey didn't trip 12 times on stage, she was likely to clear it.

When the cameras stopped, sources tell Billboard that Carey was all smiles and gushed “I love you” back to her adoring fans.

Check out the quasi triumphant return below:
