Eminem Admits He Weighed 230 Pounds When He Overdosed On Prescription Drugs

Posted on Mon Aug 3rd, 2015 9:45am PDT       By X17 Staff

Eminem got candid for a new interview with Men's Journal, in which re revealed that in the peak of his drug addiction back in 2007 -- he weighed 230 pounds -- and it wasn't 230 pounds of muscle!

The "Stan" admitted to the mag that in 2007 his addiction to pills caused him to overdose on Vicodin and Valium -- and also to eat poorly.

"In 2007, I overdosed on pills, and I went into the hospital. I was close to 230 pounds. I'm not sure how I got so big, but I have ideas. The coating on the Vicodin and the Valium I'd been taking for years leaves a hole in your stomach, so to avoid a stomachache, I was constantly eating — and eating badly," said Marshall Mathers.

The Grammy winner also admitted that he got into a workout frenzy after putting down the pills and alcohol.

    "When I got out of rehab, I needed to lose weight, but I also needed to figure out a way to function sober," he continued. "Unless I was blitzed out of my mind, I had trouble sleeping. So I started running. It gave me a natural endorphin high, but it also helped me sleep, so it was perfect. It's easy to understand how people replace addiction with exercise. One addiction for another but one that's good for them. I got an addict's brain, and when it came to running, I think I got a little carried away. I became a f--king hamster. Seventeen miles a day on a treadmill. I would get up in the morning, and before I went to the studio, I would run eight and a half miles in about an hour. Then I'd come home and run another eight and a half. I started getting OCD about the calories, making sure I burned 2,000 every day. In the end I got down to about 149 pounds. I ran to the point where I started to get injured. All the constant pounding from the running began to tear up my hip flexors."

The rapper told the mag he's tried various forms of workouts but credits his lean physique to boxing, which he began doing a few years ago.

Are they sisters or mother and daughter?! We can't tell!

Model Bella Hadid and her mom Yolanda Foster struck a stunning pose while poolside on Sunday. The gals were clearly chanelling their inner Pam Anderson because those red-suited ladies totally look like Baywatch babes!

The 18-year-old "It" girl posted the pic on her Instagram account, along with the caption, "Mommy n meee day. Home is when I'm with you my [angel]."

Aww -- so sweet!

We're glad to see that the 51-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills soaking up the sun since she's had a scary battle with Lyme disease since 2012. The gorgeous lady has chronicled her battle with the chronic illness -- at times being unable to get out of bed or read. We're happy to see that perhaps Yolanda is on the mend!

Meanwhile, Bella also went public with her budding romance with R&B singer The Weeknd (whose real name is Abel Tesfaye) on Sunday when she posted a photo of her older sister Gigi and the crooner with the caption, "My ❤️s" -- basically confirming the rumored relationship. Bikini pics and cementing her BF/GF status?! What a busy weekend for Bella and The Weeknd!

Kylie Jenner's about to be jailbait no more!

The soon-to-be 18-year-old posted yet another insanely sexy bikini selfie -- because obviously she values what's on the inside.

The 17-year-old showed off her figure in a skimpy black two piece, which she accessorized with gold bangles.

Kylie and recently single sister Kourtney Kardashian decided to take a break from their exhausting life of primping and posing to take a swim on Sunday. The teen captioned the photo, "Kourt & Ky swim session" -- because she's a clever and brilliant mind.

The youngest Jenner turns 18 next Monday and will be toasting being legally able to sleep with her 25-year-old boyfriend by holding a big bash in Montreal, Canada next weekend. We wonder if she will taking advantage of the Canada's drinking age? We think so!


Is Caitlyn Jenner Dating Candis Cayne?

Posted on Mon Aug 3rd, 2015 7:31am PDT       By X17 Staff

The world is waiting with bated breath for Caitlyn Jenner's love life to unfold ... and it's definitely getting interesting!

On last night's episode of E!'s I Am Cait, the former Olympian went on a road trip with her new gal pals friends from the transgender community like Jenny Boylan and actress Candis Cayne -- and it turns out that Cait seems to have a crush on the gorgeous Candis.

Caitlyn opened up about her feelings while she was shopping for swimsuits for the upcoming road trip. The 65-year-old said she was trying to get a "sexy" swimsuit for the trip with Candis. While blushing, the reality star said Candis was a "a very attractive lady" and then offered up pics from a recent hang out. "Candis is a beautiful woman," Caitlyn said. "But as far as dating and the future, I have absolutely no idea."

So basically that means Caitlyn is seriously crushing on Candis! We can't blame Cait -- Candis is a total babe! The two had lunch last Wednesday -- so it seems the two had fun together on their little trip!

Meanwhile, we caught Cait with Ronda Kamihira before the reality star had announced her transition. Dating rumors were flying but it turns out Caitlyn went to Ronda to confide in her about the early stages of transitioning.

Well it's too bad that there wasn't something going on with Ronda because we'd love to see Caitlyn in a good relationship after suffering through years with Kris Jenner! We can definitely see a future with Cait and Candis -- as long as the conservative starts changing some of those political views!

Kim And Kourtney Kardashian Bond With Their Kids At The Jungle Gym

Posted on Mon Aug 3rd, 2015 6:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

On Sunday Kim and Kourtney Kardashian went to My Gym in Calabasas, and from Nori to Mason to Reign, a number of Kardashian kiddos were present for the day of activities.

Kim and Kourt have spent quite a bit of time together since Kourt split from baby daddy Scott Disick, but lately the reality star seems to want her man back! On Friday she posted a smiley snapshot with little sister Kendall Jenner, and rumor has it she's dying to have LD come crawling back to her. Interestingly enough, around the same time Scott attended close friend JJ Corsini's wedding and posted a shot of his invitation which read, "When u realize the grass isn't always greener."

Seems like Kourt is majorly missing her man...and vice versa. On top of that, Lord Disick has been spending quite a bit of time with son Mason lately, so perhaps things are looking up?


EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Picture-Perfect Couple Chris Hemsworth And Elsa Pataky Run Errands With Their Darling Daughter India

Posted on Sun Aug 2nd, 2015 11:20am PDT       By X17 Staff

Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky stepped out with their oldest daughter India in Malibu on Saturday, and even for a casual day of errands, the trio looked like they were ready for a summer photo shoot!

The couple left their one-year-old twins Tristan and Sasha at home for the outing, and they're clearly enjoying some down time in between promoting their film projects. (Elsa had been making the rounds for Furious 7 while Chris had been making appearances for Vacation.) Earlier this year Chris talked about the family's life at home, and he gushed about the couple's three children.

"My daughter's 2-and-a-half and my two boys are like 8 months old, so I roll around the floor with them and on the trampoline, especially, because they can just bounce and fall over and no one gets hurt," he told E! News. "My daughter is full energy, like my wife and I, and strong-minded and has an opinion, like we do. And my boys, one's a bit more calm and chill and the other is much more sensitive to things. You see this right away, when they're first born. One cried, one didn't, with the boys."


Bobby Brown's Wife Alicia Etheredge Hospitalized After Bobbi Kristina's Funeral

Posted on Sun Aug 2nd, 2015 10:56am PDT       By X17 Staff

After attending the funeral of his daughter Bobbi Kristina, Bobby Brown had to rush his wife Alicia Etheredge to the hospital on Saturday afternoon.

Etheredge gave birth to the couple's daughter Bodhi Jameson Rein Brown less than a month ago, and according to TMZ she was suffering from seizures in the family's hotel room. Etheredge was taken to the hospital via ambulance, but the site notes that she was well enough to walk into a local medical center on her own.

Bobbi Kristina passed away on July 26 at the Peachtree Christian Hospice near Atlanta, Georgia, and her memorial service took place yesterday at St. James United Methodist Church. Most of the Houston and Brown family members were in attendance, along with friends like Tyler Perry, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, singer Monica and actor Michael Jai White. Bobbi Kristin's aunt Leolah Brown was escorted out of the church for yelling at Pat Houston during the service, but she was later allowed back in to pay her respects.

Bobbi Kristina was found facedown in her bathtub on January 31, and two days after the accident she was put on life support. She was moved to hospice care in late June.


Rihanna Slips Into A Sexy Yellow Bikini And Parades Her Hot Body Around At The Pool

Posted on Sun Aug 2nd, 2015 10:25am PDT       By X17 Staff

Bad Gal RiRi is back in a bikini and we love it!

The Bajan beauty and her BFF Melissa posted a few shots from the pool the other day, and this was BEFORE the ladies got down and dirty at the Foreday Morning Jump Up party in Barbados on Saturday. Talk about the calm before the storm!

So what exactly is the Foreday Morning Jump Up party? Apparently it's an excuse to get your drink on while getting splattered with paint. Rihanna was photographed walking around with a squirt gun and water bottles filled with paint, and not only was she nailing fellow attendees, but by the end of the day she was covered in red, yellow and purple goo as well. Of course, she still managed to look magnificent -- and she had a huge smile on her face!
