Ladies who lunch!
Caitlyn Jenner stepped out in a fashionable polka dot blouse and skinny jeans to enjoy a meal with bestie and I Am Cait co-star Candis Cayne in L.A. today, and we bet these two had a lot to talk about over their salads! After all, the transgender Olympian's E! show debuted this past Sunday, and just yesterday her ex-wife Kris came over for a peace summit at her Malibu home, TMZ reports.
Things haven't been very chummy between Kendall and Kylie's parents since their father announced he was becoming a woman, and Kimmy K's mom undoubtedly wanted to do damage control before Cait further bashes her and the Kardashian clan in the press and on her reality show. The momager also probably wanted to get her first glimpse of her former beau as a female! The two have yet to see each other face-to-face since she underwent her transition, so all signs point to this being a big step in their ability to be cordial with each other.
On another note, crazy rumors have been flying that the Vanity Fair cover girl and Miss Cayne are dating, but we're going to call BS on those! This simply seems like a friendship between two prominent members of the transgender community who are fighting to raise awareness!

You better Belieb it!
On Tuesday night's Knock Knock Live, Justin Bieber "blessed" a bunch of needy people -- oh and he also gave them cold hard cash money.
The FOX show, which hosted by Ryan Seacrest, hands out cash by knocking on the doors of deserving people and then going through a series of zany mini challenges.
In the first knock, the Biebs surprised 15-year-old Ashley who'd missed her quinceañera after contracting meningitis and almost dying.
Justin rewarded the superfan a belated quinceañera with all her family and friends, where he slow danced with her to his song "Pray." The teen also got a shopping spree for her mom and $10,000 to help with medical bills.
The second knock was quite a sight to be seen. JB met up with Nikia and his rapping son Noah, who has down syndrome.
After getting a little concert from the toddler and his dad, the 21-year-old presented the pair with a check for $50K, courtesy of one of the show's sponsors. The "Baby" singer said to them, "I just wanted to come here and bless you with that."
"Bless"?! While we think it's possible he's been spending too much time with Pastor Carl Lentz -- we know Justin means well.
The heart-warming show features a celeb giving amazing surprises to a handful of worthy people. David Beckham and Common appeared on the show last week.
Just try to watch this video without crying -- it's not possible!

Even supermodels need a nip/tuck!
Gisele Bundchen allegedly got secret plastic surgery while in Paris and was caught when her longtime chauffeur was spotted dropping the model off at the clinic, the New York Post reports.
The Brazilian beauty and her sister Rafaela arrived at the doctor's office undercover in Muslim burqas on July 15th, and stayed overnight to recover before being picked up by the same chauffeur the following morning.
The ladies were then taken to Les Sources de Caudalie spa to bounce back in privacy for a week.
The Victoria's Secret stunner is rumored to have had work done on her breasts, which she thought sagged after two pregnancies, and her eyes. The $11k procedure was meant to be a 35th birthday and retirement gift to herself.
Let's hope she didn't screw up her famous features!

We are actually on #TeamCara for this one!
Cara Delevingne appeared on Good Day Sacramento to promote her new movie Paper Towns, and the news anchors seemed intent on picking a fight with the actress by asking some pretty rude questions!
They started out by introducing her as "Carla," and then the TV personalities started insulting her in a very passive aggressive, backhanded manner. The model was criticized for her bad attitude once this clip hit the Internet, but we actually think she handled herself pretty well considering the circumstances!
The presenters asked the starlet if she had ever read the novel the movie was based on, and she attempted to brush it off and give a cheeky response. "'Uh, no I never read the book, or the script. I kind of winged it," she quipped. It proceed to go from bad to worse, until the cat walker lost her cool with their insults!
After the male anchor suggested that British beauty was tired and seemed to be in a foul mood, they abruptly ended the interview with this parting line! "We'll let you go take a little nap, maybe get a Red Bull, how about that?" and then cut the feed.

Both the owner of the New England Patriots, Robert Kraft, and Tom Brady slammed the NFL for upholding the quarterback's four-game suspension after the "Deflategate" scandal. The superstar athlete maintains that he did nothing wrong.
On Tuesday, the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld Brady's suspension that was decreed in May, and added that new information had arisen proving that Brady tried to hide evidence by breaking his cell phone.
But Brady isn't taking the statement lying down. In addition to denying deflating footballs during games, Brady also says he did nothing incorrectly when he broke his cell phone which was key evidence in the investigation.
In a Facebook post, Brady wrote, "To suggest that I destroyed a phone to avoid giving the NFL information it requested is completely wrong." The quarterback wrote a lengthy post on his social media page, saying:
I am very disappointed by the NFL’s decision to uphold the 4 game suspension against me. I did nothing wrong, and no one in the Patriots organization did either.
Despite submitting to hours of testimony over the past 6 months, it is disappointing that the Commissioner upheld my suspension based upon a standard that it was “probable” that I was “generally aware” of misconduct. The fact is that neither I, nor any equipment person, did anything of which we have been accused. He dismissed my hours of testimony and it is disappointing that he found it unreliable.
I also disagree with yesterdays narrative surrounding my cellphone. I replaced my broken Samsung phone with a new iPhone 6 AFTER my attorneys made it clear to the NFL that my actual phone device would not be subjected to investigation under ANY circumstances. As a member of a union, I was under no obligation to set a new precedent going forward, nor was I made aware at any time during Mr. Wells investigation, that failing to subject my cell phone to investigation would result in ANY discipline.
Most importantly, I have never written, texted, emailed to anybody at anytime, anything related to football air pressure before this issue was raised at the AFC Championship game in January. To suggest that I destroyed a phone to avoid giving the NFL information it requested is completely wrong …
Deflategate came about after the Patriots won January's AFC championship game over the Indianapolis Colts, before eventually winning the Super Bowl. Accusers claim that that Brady and the team knowingly used under-inflated footballs to help win. Despite the suspension. Brady has denied vehemently any involvement.

If this isn't the weirdest advertising, we don't know what is!
Kim Kardashian hits the screen to do some quality acting in the new Hype energy drink commercials, and the reality star goes from an Audrey Hepburn look-a-like one second to Marie Antoinette the next, and finishes the clip off by being a sexy futuristic version of herself! Seriously, WTF!
This has to be the brainchild of a European director, because it has euro written all over it! From bicycling down the street with a basket of energy drinks to the techno music at the end, this doesn't seem like it's targeted to Americans!
We have no idea what to say about it, other than we hope Kimmy K got a hefty paycheck for something this embarrassing!

Despite her constant media exposure (some might say OVERexposure), Caitlyn Jenner isn't quite the hit that she thought she was.
On Tuesday, the ratings for the premiere of her reality show I Am Cait just came out and it turns out the much hyped reality show only received 2.7 million viewers, a far cry from the 17 million people who watched the Olympic champ's Diane Sawyer interview in April.
While her acceptance speech at the ESPY Awards was a rousing success garnering 7.7 million viewers, it appears as though though that fan fare doesn't translate to viewer gold. Out of the 2.7 million viewers, 1.5 of them came from the key 18-49 demographic. The docuseries did tie for first across cable -- but it tied with an 11 p.m. episode of Family Guy, which is really nothing to write home about. while I Am Cait is certainly not a failure -- it's not a success by any means.
The E! reality show chronicles Caitlyn's life as a trans woman and spokesperson, and follows the Olympian as she jumps over her new hurdles living as a personality in the public eye.
