Kim Kardashian Makes Major Family Announcement

Kim Kardashian has something important to say.

In a public statement on Thursday, the former sex tape star told the world that “it’s time to move on.”

Was she confirming that Khloe Kardashian has finally decided to dump Tristan Thompson, about a week after learning that he’s been cheating on her left, right and every direction in between?


Nothing that dramatic.

Instead, Kardashian was announcing that she and her siblings have chosen to shut down all DASH locations.

If you’re wondering what the heck this refers to, well… that does a long way toward explaining why the storefronts will cease to exist.

“After nearly 12 years, my sisters and I have decided to close the doors of our DASH stores,” the mother of three wrote on her app of her family-owned clothing stores, adding:

“We opened our first store as a family in 2006 and since then we have made so many lifelong memories.

From opening locations in Los Angeles, Miami and New York, to having our Dash Dolls spin-off show, it’s been such a huge part of our lives.”

Concluded Kim in this post:

“We’ve loved running DASH, but in the last few years we’ve all grown so much individually.

“We’ve been busy running our own brands, as well as being moms and balancing work with our families. We know in our hearts that it’s time to move on.”

At one point, in an attempt to help DASH be a successful business, E! even greenlit a show titled DASH Dolls, which hilariously focused on the employees that worked in these stores.

It only aired one season.

Kim, of course, is right.

Kylie Jenner is the main name and face of a cosmetics company that has somehow been valued at a billion dollars.

Khloe Kardashian has her own denim line.

Kourtney, meanwhile, is about to launch a new line with younger sister Kylie, titled “KOURT X KYLIE.”

And insiders tell TMZ that Kim will soon come out with her own “intimates and swimwear” line.

This may explain why Kim has been posing in bikinis so much of late.

In a final tribute to the legacy of DASH, Kardashian also wrote the following yesterday evening:

“We love our DASH Dolls and are so grateful for the amazing memories – and we have to give a special thanks to the DASH employees and all of the incredible fans and customers who have supported us throughout the years!

“We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you to everyone!”

On top of their personal professional obligations, the Kardashian-Jenner sisters have other reasons to be occupied these days.

Other adorable reasons, that is!

Kim and Kanye West now have three kids under five years old at home.

Kylie gave birth to her first daughter in February.

And then Khloe gave birth to her first daughter just two weeks ago.

The sisters have come a VERY long way since they opened that first DASH location.

It’s actually sort of amazing all we’ve watched them go through in a decade-plus, isn’t it?


Khloe Kardashian Makes Second Statement Since Giving Birth

Khloe Kardashian is yet to address the very strong rumor that Tristan Thompson cheated on her frequently while the star was expecting.

But the brand new mother has now made a pair of public statements via social media and the Internet.

First, as previously detailed (and then mocked by many), Khloe announced her daughter’s name to the world.

She did so by sharing a photo of her child’s nursery and by writing the following words:

Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE.

Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!

Yup: True Thompson.

Critics have plenty opinions on both this first name and also the last, which is, of course, the same as the infant’s dishonest and disingenuous father.

Insider says Khloe went back and forth for awhile regarding whether or not to name her child after Tristan.

Now, about a week after she gave birth and about a week after news of the Thompson cheating scandal went viral, Khloe has spoken again.

No, she has not touched on the many reports that detail how often Thompson cheated and even whether he used protection while doing so or not.

Instead, Kardashian has focused on both motherhood and sisterhood and how thankful she is to have a couple of positive role models in her life.

“It’s so comforting to know that I have sisters whom I can ask about anything that may come up,” Kardashian wrote on her website yesterday.

She then added:

“My sisters are all such phenomenal moms!

“I can’t say exactly what advice or skills I’ll be taking from them, but I’m going to remain awe-inspired by how they can handle it all. I hope that comes easily for me.”

Both Kim and Kourtney Kardashian are parents to three kids.

Kourtney has a son named Mason and daughters named Penelope and Reign.

Kim has a son named North and daughters named Chicago and Saint.

Heck, even Kylie Jenner is now a mother, having welcomed little Stormi into the world on February 1.

To conclude a post titled “Why My Sisters Are The Ultimate Mom Mentors” Khloe wrote:

Even though I’m not big on taking advice – I don’t believe there’s only one-way-or-the-highway and we all have to adapt into our own routines – it’s so comforting to know that I have sisters whom I can ask about anything that may come up.

Just by observing them as moms, I’ve already learned so much.

It still remains unclear just where Khloe will live while she raises little True.

Sources say she is still in Cleveland, but actually NOT residing with Tristan.

She is legitimately torn on whether to end the relationship or whether to make the best of it, now that she and Thompson are parents.

A recent report claimed Khloe positively WENT OFF on Thompson almost immediately after she gave birth, screaming at her baby daddy right after a nurse took True out of the room for the first time.

We certainly can’t blame her, can you?

And we won’t blame her no matter what decision she makes here.

If she flies back to Los Angeles and leaves Thompson behind… well, good riddance. The guy sucks.

If she attempts to stick it out… well, who can really fault a woman for doing what she thinks is best for her child?


Southwest Flight Makes Emergency Landing, Passenger Tweets CRAZY Details


You may not want to read the rest of this post if you ever want to fly in an airplane ever again…

On Tuesday afternoon, a Southwest Airlines flight en route from LaGuardia Airport in New York to Dallas made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after one of the engines blew and a passenger got nearly sucked out of a window as a result.

As confirmed by a map via FlightAware, Southwest Flight 1380 was headed west/southwest when it took a sharp turn east, back towards Philadelphia.

Accounts from passengers on board have confirmed that an engine on the left side of the plane exploded mid-flight, causing shrapnel to fly across the aisle.

Incredibly, only one person was injured from the blast and he/she was tended to by medical personnel aboard the aircraft.

“We are aware that Southwest flight #1380 from New York La Guardia (LGA) to Dallas Love Field (DAL) has diverted to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL),” said Southwest in a statement, adding:

“We are in the process of transporting Customers and Crew into the terminal. The aircraft, a Boeing 737-700, has 143 Customers and five Crewmembers onboard.

“We are in the process of gathering more information.

“Safety is always our top priority at Southwest Airlines, and we are working diligently to support our Customers and Crews at this time.”

As news continues to break regarding exactly what happened, passengers have started to share photos from the plane on social media.

For example, Kristopher Johnson snapped the picture below and shared it to Twitter, thanking the Southwest crew “for a great job getting us to the ground safely after losing in engine.”

Marty Martinez, meanwhile, shared a Facebook live video that depicts him with an oxygen mask on.

“Something is wrong with our plane! It appears we are going down! Emergency landing!!” he says in the footage.

Martinez later talked to CBS News after the plane had landed in Philadelphia, explaining something went wrong about a half hour into the trip.

“All of a sudden, we heard an explosion and I come to find out that the engine exploded on the left side of the plane,” he said.

“That explosion caused one of the windows to explode in row 17 of the plane, which was just two aisles over from me.”

Added Martinez:

“I thought I was cataloging the last moments of my existence. It was absolutely terrifying.”

scary flight

Then there was Todd Baur, the father of one passenger onboard, who told NBC Philadelphia that a woman was nearly sucked out of the broken window.

She “was partially … was drawn out towards the out of the plane” and “was pulled back in by other passengers,” Baur said, adding that she was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Philadelphia Airport has Tweeted that passengers should expect delays following an order (since lifted) from the Federal Aviation Administration that had been preventing flights en route to Philadelphia from taking off.

Crazy, right?

While this near-catastrophe might scare some folks away some flying, it may actually encourage others to feel even safer in the sky.

After all… an engine actually blew up and the plane was still able to land safely, with no fatalities.

Pretty amazing, no?

UPDATE: The FAA has issued its statement on what happened to Southwest flight 1380.

It reads as follows:

Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 landed at Philadelphia International Airport this morning after the crew reported damage to one of the aircraft’s engines, as well as the fuselage and at least one window.

The aircraft, which departed from New York LaGuardia Airport, diverted to Philadelphia, where it landed at 11:20 a.m. Eastern.

Passengers exited the aircraft using air stairs. Please contact local emergency response officials for information on the condition of the passengers.

The FAA is investigating the incident and the National Transportation Safety Board has been notified. The NTSB will be in charge of the investigation.


Carrie Underwood Makes (Very!) Emotional Return to Stage

Carrie Underwood did more than just move fans to tears on Sunday night.

The beloved solo artist moved herself to tears as well.

Donning tear-shaped glitter makeup below her eyes, the former American Idol champion delivered an emotional performance her new single “Cry Pretty” at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas.

She received a standing ovation at the end of the rendition because it was the first time she took to a stage since a horrific fall back in November.

As Underwood admitted in a subsequent social media post at the time, this fall resulted in over 40 stitches to her face.

The superstar even confessed late last year that she was frightened to show her face again in public.

"When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different," Underwood wrote candidly, adding last week that her face is "healing well" and:

"I definitely feel more like myself than I have in a while."

We were very glad to hear this.

And then even more glad to see Underwood back in amazing action at the ACM Awards.

Moments after earning her ovation and fighting back years, the American Idol alum and Keith Urban returned to the stage to accept the award for vocal event of the year for their duet “The Fighter.”

“Thank you for having me,” Underwood told her fellow artist through tears. “I’m still shaking right now. Thank you.”

Underwood donned a sparkly silver-and-black frock and didn’t miss a single beat as she belted out her beautiful power ballad last night.

The lyrics of the track are all about vulnerability and overcoming adversity and they allude to her traumatic injury.

“The title refers to when emotions take over and you just can’t hold them back,” Underwood explained in a letter to fans about the single after she released a recorded version of “Cry Pretty” earlier this week.

She added:

“It really speaks to a lot of things that have happened in the past year and I hope when you hear it, you can relate those feelings to those times in your life.

"It’s emotional. It’s real. And it ROCKS!”

YOU rock, Carrie.
