Guillermo del Toro didn’t let his wins for Best Picture and Best Director at Sunday’s Oscars go to his head as he hit the after-party circuit in Hollywood. We got the ‘Shape of Water’ director heading into the 20th Century Fox & Fox…
Look out, all corpses buried in the same cemetery as Marilyn Monroe.
Because this legendary actress must be rolling in her grave right about now.
And it’s all thanks to June Shannon.
The WEtv reality star is posing here for a special photo shoot in which she channels the most famous movie scene in Monroe’s extensive resume.
You know the one, right?
That one in which Monroe stands over a grate in The Seven Year Itch and we see her iconic white dress get blown up over hear body and nearly over her head?
It may be the most famous few moments in big screen history.
And now Shannon is doing her best impression of Monroe, striking a very similar pose in a very similar outfit, something we never thought we’d see just a few years ago.
Seriously, remember when Shannon weighed over 300 pounds?
Heck, when she weighed over 400 pounds?!?
Before she underwent that drastic weight loss?
That was way back then and this is now… and now Shannon fancies herself a role model for plump individuals who want to change their appearance and lifestyle.
Hence this pictorial.
The fine folks behind Mama June: From Not to Hot sent us these photos in promotion of this Friday’s midseason finale, which the network bills as follows:
June undergoes another surgery to keep from going blind. Jennifer keeps a huge secret from Sugar Bear. Pumpkin is rushed into labor and June risks everything to be with her- despite her doctor’s orders!
Sounds pretty exciting, doesn’t it?
Mama June is down to around 200 pounds these days, a transformation she credits to some dieting, a bit of exercise and a lot of plastic surgery.
Like, A LOT of plastic surgery.
Will she undergo any more down the line?
This is a question that continues to surround the unexpected reality star.
Shannon isn’t planning any more procedures as far as we know, but if it helps her land another season of her popular series, we’re guessing she’d gladly go under the knife.
What do you think of Shannon making like Monroe in these images?
Is it a sign of empowerment? Of how far Shannon has some in her weight loss journey?
Or is this the most sacrilegious thing you’ve ever seen in your entire life?
If you hear someone say that she'd rather "be on safari," she might be talking about Safaree Samuels.
There was a time when he was best known for being Nicki Minaj's ex, or perhaps for getting a beat-down from Meek Mills.
Right now, his biggest claim to fame might be his leaked nudes.
And we do mean biggest. Based on Twitter's response, it looks like Safaree is what one might call anatomically blessed.
Obviously, no one deserves to have their nudes leaked. Those are private photos and for someone to broadcast them to the world is a terrible violation.
But those who saw the images — often without looking for them, as leaked nudes make quite a splash and it's easy to see them without ever meaning to — couldn't help but comment.
Social media is a great platform for comedy, and many of these responses were next-level.
Take a look:
1. Safaree Samuels
2. Naturally, someone had to involve Kylie Jenner in this
3. It looks like some men just aren’t measuring up in comparison
4. Safaree’s getting new fans, it seems
5. They think that Safaree might make some new "friends"
6. Safaree’s been the butt of jokes in the past
It's tough to imagine being as clueless as Farrah Abraham.
Farrah has been fired from Teen Mom OG for what essentially amounts to sheer idiocy, but she still finds new and interesting ways to eff up on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, much of her fooliahness involves her 9-year-old daughter, Sophia.
Farrah is obsessed with Sophia's "modeling career," and she goes to great lengths to mold her daughter into both her clone and her best friend.
And sometimes that leads to some truly questionable parenting…

6. Somebody Stop Her
Farrah Abraham … look, she’s not the brightest, OK?
Not by a very, very long shot.
Ever since Farrah became famous for being a Teen Mom, she’s made one questionable decision after another.
Sometimes those decisions are the result of harmless ignorance, like the time she got ripped off trying to sell a car online, or all the random, dumb things that fall out of her mouth on a daily basis.
But other times those decisions come from … we don’t even know what to call it, but it’s a real bad place.
For example, her choice to pull her daughter Sophia out of school so she could homeschool her when we’re a little doubtful that she technically understands the English language herself?
That’s a next-level bad decision.
And wouldn’t you know it, Farrah went and made ANOTHER one of those terrible choices this week — and we’re not even talking about the ridiculous idea she had to try and sue Viacom for being fired from Teen Mom OG.
Nope, this one is way, way worse. In many ways.
On Thursday night, Farrah did a quick little interview with TMZ, and she did kick things off by talking about her lawsuit.
She was asked how she felt about being fired for doing adult films — which we know is just part of the reason she was let go — and she said “Every celebrity has a celebrity sex tape so … that just means you’re more famous, I guess.”
That didn’t answer the question at all, and it’s also definitely not true, but of course we never expect Farrah to make sense, so that’s fine.
When asked if that was a double standard (we really have no idea already what’s happening in this interview), she said “There’s a lot of double standards and discrimination, women aren’t treated equally, so I just do what’s right.”
“If nobody else wants to change the world for better, that’s fine, but I want to, and that’s my prerogative, I guess.”
Sure thing, girl.
Next she was asked about her feelings about the lawsuit, if she was nervous at all.
“I mean, I’ve never lost any lawsuit I’ve ever been in,” she answered.
She also said “My legal team is read, Viacom’s not ready.”
Whatever you say, Farrah.
Lastly, and this is the thing we really want to get into, the subject of Kim Kardashian’s most recent scandal came up for some reason — the scandal where she posted that topless photo that she said North took for her.
“You know, there’s a lot of other celebrities who are nude all over the place on social media, but they’re not called porn stars,” she laughed.
And then she dropped this uncomfortable bombshell:
“My daughter and I run around the house naked, and we just live life free. I mean, we have naked pictures on our phones of each other because we’re like a mom and daughter crew.”
Farrah. Farrah, no.
That first part isn’t so much the issue. Some families are more comfortable with nudity than others, and that’s OK.
But is there any reason at all, any conceivable reason, for Sophia to have naked pictures of her mother on her phone?
Is there any reason at all for Farrah to have naked pictures of her nine-year-old daughter on her phone?
No. Nope. Nope nope nope.
This is just a truly bizarre, upsetting … just bad thing for Farrah to admit.
And Twitter agrees.
“Ummm I don’t know just a wild guess but….. Something tells me cps & the cops will be visiting her soon because of this interview,” one person predicted. “This is just very sad!”
“Another level of crazy I tell you,” another person wrote. “Nothing wrong with being naked in front of your child if that’s what you want, but to have naked photos of each other on their phones is a little disgusting and by a little I mean a lot.”
A whole, whole lot.
Yet another outraged tweeter wrote that this is “beyond the pale,” and that “it’s too late for that kid, she’s seen and heard too much. So so sad. 3 generations of SCREWED up women.”
It is sad, but perhaps the saddest thing is that no one is shocked about this at all.
… Actually, on second thought, no — the nude mother-daughter photo shoots are definitely sadder.
Get it together, Farrah. Or at least try.
Earlier this month, Nashville Mayor Megan Barry confessed that she engaged in an extramarital affair with Sgt. Robert Forrest, the man she paid at the time to serve as her personal bodyguard.
In making this admission, Barry said she intended to remain in office.
But a new piece of this burgeoning scandal may make it difficult for her to do so.
“I know that God will forgive me, but that Nashville doesn’t have to,” Barry said during a news conference three weeks ago, adding:
“And I hope that I can earn their trust and I can earn your trust back, and that you will forgive me.”
Barry, who is in the middle of her first term, said the affair began a few months after she started her job.
Both Barry and Forrest were married at the time of their relationship, which both now insist is over.
However, the controversy surrounding their dalliance may only be beginning… and this is why:
On Thursday, state investigators discovered one naked photo and one partially nude photo of a woman on Forrest’s cell phone.
According to court documents, these photos were snapped while Forrest’s timesheet stated he was working… and also during the time in which he and Barry were knocking proverbial boots.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has NOT identified the woman in the photos…
… But an agent says (via a sworn affidavit) that the black purse in one snapshot matches the black purse Barry is seen holding in a different photo found on Forrest’s phone.
These two pictures were shot last May and October, on days that Barry’s travel schedule shows she was on separate Washington trips.
In response to this latest aspect of her scandal, Barry said she’s unaware any such photos of her exist and that the allegations surrounding them are “very troubling and infuriating if true.”
We’re not really sure what she means.
We think she’s saying that she never posed for said photos or have anyone permission to include them in emails.
(Authorities discovered the snapshots while coming through Forrest’s email, which included 260 deleted chats between Forrest’s phone and Barry’s phone number, as well as 35 deleted call logs.)
“While I have not seen the photos in question, if they were of me, they were taken without my knowledge or permission and a complete invasion of my privacy,” Barry said in a statement this week.
Forrest was paid overtime on each of the days the photos were taken, according to the court documents.
And this is where the scandal moves from something for celebrity gossip websites to laugh over to something for that may cause authorities to file charges.
Was Barry using tax payer money to finance her affair?
Did she give preferential monetary treatment to her lover?
(Forrest’s overtime pay increased by 83% since Barry took office, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says. The agency compared that with a colleague whose overtime increased 49%.)
“Nothing in the affidavits released today … indicates that I have committed any actions that violate the law,” Barry said in her statement Thursday.
She added: “If any violations of the law occurred, they were in violating my personal rights.”
Yeah, that’s it, Megan Barry.
You’re the victim here.

Kylie Jenner resurfaced into the world Saturday … and it’s hard to believe she gave birth 10 days ago. Kylie and BFF Jordyn Woods were in Calabasas when the photog snapped these pics. We’re told they were headed to a meeting in L.A. It…
Talk about anti-climactic!
Typically, when a star as big as Kylie Jenner gets pregnant, baby bump photos are everywhere in the months before the baby arrives.
But Kylie broke all the rules while carrying her kid.
On Sunday, the world learned that Kylie welcomed a baby girl on February 1.
With an astonishing 102 million Instagram followers, the 20-year-old reality star is usually one of the most visible people on social media.
But during her pregnancy, Kylie all but disappeared from the public eye.
(Well, to the extent that it’s possible for a member of the Kardashian clan to disappear from the public eye.)
There were many rumors as to why this was the case, and Kylie put some of them to rest in a heartfelt Instagram post yesterday.
Basically, it sounds like the pressures of impending motherhood and her insecurities about her changing body compelled her to lie low – but now that the baby has arrived, we finally get to see what Kylie looked like when she was knocked up!
The photo above was posted by Kylie’s friend Heather Sanders, who was pregnant at the same time as Jenner.
Heather posted the pic, along with the following tribute to Kylie:
“Congratulations To The sweetest,Loving, Most Caring person on earth! So happy we got to share this experience together!” Sanders wrote.
“Sleep together, Eat together, Workout etc Love Having you as my pregnant sister for 9 Months! You are going to be such an amazing Mom, and your beautiful baby is the luckiest girl in the world to have you as her mother.
“You Were Made For This! I Love You So Much! Can’t wait for Your Snap Back We Not Even Ready.”
Another one of Kylie’s bump buddies is her sister Khloe Kardashian.
Khloe is still pregnant with her first child, and it seems she’ll miss having Kylie around as her partner in pregnancy.
Like Sanders, Khloe posted a pic of herself with a pregnant Kylie, along with some heartfelt words of support:
“Congratulations My Sweet Kylie! What a magical ride it’s been! I’ll miss you bumping along with me,” Khloe wrote.
“Never in a million years did I think we would do this together but it’s been that much more special because of it.
“God is so great!! He had His plan all along! I love you little mama.”
Sounds like a lot of folks will miss pregnant Kylie.
Fortunately, Mama Kylie is taking her place, and we’re guessing she’ll be pretty popular, too.
After all, not every new mother can boast a 9-figure Instagram following.
Our sincere congrats go out to Kylie and her family.
We’re sure she’ll slay motherhood the same way she slays the selfie game.
Nick Foles may have outshined Tom Brady while winning MVP honors in Super Bowl 52…
… but the Eagles quarterback was unable to steal the headlines on Sunday from two people who didn’t play a single down in the big game.
Wouldn’t you know that Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian would find a way to dominate the headlines?!?
Jenner, of course, did so by giving birth to her first child.
Following months of secrecy, the 20-year old welcomed a baby girl over the weekend, releasing a statement shortly afterward that explained why she had remained out of the spotlight during her pregnancy.
“I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how,” Kylie said via statement, adding on Sunday:
“I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could…
“I’ve never felt love and happiness like this; I could burst!”
To make up for how little she shared with the public during her journey to motherhood, Kylie posted a lengthy video online that depicted her baby bump in various stages, along with something else…
… glimpses of Chicago West!
That’s right, fans were unexpectedly treated to a few looks at Kim and Kanye West’s third child via the footage above, as Kylie’s family members visited her in the hospital prior to her own baby’s arrival.
For example, Rob stopped by with daughter Dream, who adorably touched the head of her cousin at one point.
You can see what we mean here:
Kim – who has not yet shared any pictures of her daughter on social media or sold any to supermarket tabloids (yet) – also allowed little Chicago to be filmed for this special video.
The child was born via surrogate last month because Kardashian has a health complication that would have made another pregnancy very dangerous.
Kim and Kanye were right in the delivery room when Chicago entered the world at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Check out this cute snapshot of mother and new child:
“She’s here!” Kardashian declared in extra-large type on her Twitter account shortly after the blessed event took place, adding at the time:
“We’re so in love…
“We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care.”
At another point in her video to fans, Jenner is seen cradling her niece in her arms, preparing for the many days and nights in which she’ll be doing the same with her own little girl.
(Kylie is yet to announce her daughter’s name.)
It certainly looks like Chicago West is very well loved, doesn’t it?
She’ll soon have even more company, too, as Khloe Kardashian is pregnant and expecting her first child at some point in the next month or so.
How crazy is all of this?!?
Just when you think the Kardashians-Jenners are out of ways to make news, just when you think that the Eagles finally winning a Super Bowl would be all anyone wants to talk about…
Kim, Kylie and, in due time, Khloe make it as clear as ever:
This is their universe. We should just be grateful that they allow us to reside in it.
(Also: Congrats to Kylie and Kim! We’re so very happy for them!)
