Kendall Jenner Dishes To Jimmy Kimmel About Her Vogue Cover And Her Big Family

Posted on Thu Aug 25th, 2016 8:50am PDT       By X17 Staff

Kendall Jenner is pretty good at keeping secrets!

The leggy lady, who donned a black miniskirt and yellow lingerie top for the interview, revealed during last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! that she only clued in two of her family members that she’d nabbed the September cover of Vogue. Who were the two confidants? Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian, of course!

On Wednesday, Kimmel said, ”The whole family is famous. I can't imagine how embarrassing it would be to not be famous in your family. But when you share news like the Vogue magazine for instance, do you have to tell them right away before it's announced? Do people find out from other sources?"

Jenner replied, "This I really wanted to keep a secret from everyone. I think my mom was the only one who knew. I slipped up on Kim. I told Kim … I wanted it to be a surprise. Not only for everyone, but also my family. I just wanted it to be super special."

The funny man also teased the supermodel about her big family: ”Do you ever wish there was fewer Kardashians so you get more of the attention?"

Jenner responded, “Never!" I love having a big family. It's the best thing in the world. You always have someone to talk to."

Fewer Kardashians?! God no! What else would we have to talk about?!

Sofia Richie Manages To Go Home With Justin Bieber After Celebrating Her Birthday Solo

She probably waited to text him as long as she could before giving in!

Sofia Richie celebrated her 18th birthday at The Nice Guy last night with an entourage of male pals, but rumored boyfriend Justin Bieber was nowhere in sight! In fact, he was across town at The Doheny Room, and when Lionel Richie's daughter wrapped up her evening at the celeb hotspot, she booked it over to JB's location to be by his side.

The barely legal socialite must not mind the fact that The Biebs isn't a one woman man. After all, he was just spotted with British model Bronte Blampied in London, and before that he was skinny dipping in Hawaii with Australian model Sahara Ray. Dude gets around!

Perhaps that's why Sofia was sick just a few days ago? She should think twice about making out with someone that is making out with everyone! That's how germs spread, y'all. Earlier in the afternoon, she stopped by Earth Bar to grab some vitamins to fight her flu. If they sold cheating boyfriend elixir, she'd be on the mend by now!


Report: Jennifer Lopez And Casper Smart Split

Posted on Wed Aug 24th, 2016 1:25pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Jenny's back on the block! Holla!

Jennifer Lopez and boyfriend Casper Smart have called it quits on their relationship, People reports.

"Jennifer and Casper have split. They have not been together for a few weeks," a source dished to People.

"It wasn't anything dramatic and they were on good terms – it just came to a natural end. They will remain friends and they see each other, but they are not together. It was very amiable," the source added.

The pair first began dating back in 2011 after J.Lo's split from husband Marc Anthony, but they've taken several breaks during their romance. The backup dancer recently helped his superstar lady love celebrate her birthday in Las Vegas, and he was in the audience for her Caesar's Palace show on August 13, so something must have happened to cause the sudden split.

Our queen should get back with Ben Affleck now that they're both single!

Report: Ryan Lochte Is Heading To Dancing With The Stars

Posted on Wed Aug 24th, 2016 1:20pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Well not everyone's stopped backing Ryan Lochte after he turned out to be a big fat liar and told people he got robbed by men parading as police men -- looks like reality TV still wants a piece of manmeat! Multiple outlets are reporting that the disgraced Olympian will be heading to season 23 of Dancing with the Stars.

It looks like the gold medal-winning singer is turning in his Speedo for a pair of dancing shoes.

Last week Ryan was involved in a robbery scandal in Rio and eventually came clean on TV, saying that he “overexaggerated” his story about being robbed at gunpoint. Should we tell the athlete who is known for his brawn not his brains that "overexaggerated" isn't a word?

An insider tells Us Weekly that, “Doing DWTS will be great for Ryan’s image!” At this point anything would be good for his image! The source added, "He will be able to show America that he’s a good guy who made a mistake. He’s still an Olympic champion! He will be great on the show."
Ryan will also reportedly be joining Amber Rose, who is also rumored to be joining the show's 23rd season.


Naya Rivera Reveals She Aborted First Child With Husband Ryan Dorsey

Posted on Wed Aug 24th, 2016 1:05pm PDT       By X17 Staff

It takes a lot of bravery to admit something like this.

Naya Rivera reveals a lot in her new memoir Sorry Not Sorry, but the most heartbreaking part is when she discusses sacrificing her first pregnancy for her career.

The actress found out she was expecting just one week after breaking up with now-husband Ryan Dorsey in 2010, and she chose to keep the secret from him and terminate the pregnancy during a day off from shooting Glee. The couple went on to wed in 2014 and welcome son Josey, 11 months.

"It was very scary to open up about everything. It's not something a lot of people talk about, but I think they should. I know some people might read it and say, 'What the Hell?' But I hope someone out there gets something out of it," she wrote.

She also touched on her battle with an eating disorder in her teens.

"By the time I was a sophomore, I started feeling that what had begun as a game had maybe gone too far. I just avoided food at all costs. If my mom had packed a lunch for me, I'd either trash it or find some excuse to give it away," she recalled. "I was so young and it just seemed to be the norm. Everyone was going through similar stuff. I had no way of knowing if I was going through it worse. I was juggling my feelings and it makes me sad that there are girls still going through that 15 years after I went through it," she explained.

This is some pretty heavy stuff.

Bad hair day?

Arnold Schwarzenegger is following in Donald Trump's footsteps in more than one way as the Austrian, who is gearing up to take over the reigns for the Donald on the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice.

For his flight into LAX, Arnie was looking particularly preppy in an army green collared shirt, khaki pants and Adidas Shell Toes. So trendy!

That's actually kind of a great cast. Check it out!
