LeAnn Rimes Slams 11-Year-Old Stepson Mason For Not Being As "Driven" As Her

Posted on Wed Nov 26th, 2014 11:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

LeAnn Rimes sat down with The Daily Mail to chat about her family life and her career, and while she's quite honest about a number of things, she went a little too far when she compared herself to her stepson.

LeLe tells the publication:
    "I was super-driven as a kid. Even though I was on the road a lot, the teachers would give me homework and I would get it all done. I look at my 11-year-old stepson Mason, and I’m like, ‘I signed a record deal when I was your age. You’re still fumbling with tying your shoelaces.'"

On her childhood, she added: "I always say, 'Smart, pretty…unpopular,' because girls can be really jealous. I was terrified of school and I was bullied. When I was 11, a girl brought a knife to school and wrote me a note saying she was going to hurt me with it. Girls can be really mean, even now. It is sad that we can’t encourage each other. I think a lot of girls get intimidated by other people’s success."

Apparently the 32-year-old singer is still bullied today, and it was reported that she sought treatment for anxiety and depression because of people posting nasty comments on Twitter. "I've been such a target I guess for misjudgment lately, and a lot of anger from some people, especially through social media," she told Entertainment Tonight last year. "Obviously we're [celebrities] underneath a microscope and in the spotlight all the time, but it's no reason to be able to pick apart someone the way that a lot of people do. We're human ... this is my job, and then I have my life. But I'm a human being in both of them -- and I think people forget that a lot of times."

Um, just a thought: Maybe you shouldn't make degrading comments about other people (you know, like your family?!) and then people won't be mean to you? Of course, LeAnn will probably tweet that this was taken out of context, but how could it be?

We'd imagine Mason doesn't appreciate her remarks (and we're sure he has access to the internet), and when his mom Brandi Glanville sees this, we have a feeling this could start World War III...


Do YOU think LeAnn was out of line?
Do YOU think LeAnn was out of line?
Yes! She should apologize for what she said.
No. She's allowed to say whatever she wants about her family.


Paris Hilton Weighs In On Ferguson Protests, Thinks Officer Darren Wilson Should Have Been Prosecuted

Princess P makes a good point!

Paris Hilton touched down at LAX yesterday, and when we asked about the protests in Ferguson, the socialite didn't hold back and called it an "awful" and "very scary" situation.

Our videographer then asked if the heiress thought Officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot unarmed black teenager Mike Brown, should have been prosecuted by the grand jury. "Yes, no excuse for killing someone," she told us. Maybe there would never would have been riots in the first place if P.Hilty was in charge!

Kim Zolciak Denies Waist Training Despite Flaunting Tiny Waist

Posted on Wed Nov 26th, 2014 10:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

Kim Zolciak shared yet another body pic on Tuesday in an attempt to show off her tiny waist and refute rumors that she is waist training like fellow reality stars Snooki and Kim Kardashian.

The proud mom of six wrote, "Running out the door but heyyyyy thanks @310nutrition #aintnowaistcincherhere #nofilter."

This isn't the first time wig-wearing mama had to defend her noteworthy bod'. In September she took to Instagram to rant about all the people commening on her bathing suit pic. She wrote, "I think I have officially read it all after posting my bathing suit pic yesterday! From photoshopping a thigh gap, to photoshopping my breast, to photoshopping a butt how about.. it's me alllll F—KIN ME haters ..every last bit is ME!! Zoom in real f—kin close too... I dare you... no photoshopping!!"

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star might not be waist training or Photoshopping to get that ridiculous body of hers -- but she did get a tummy tuck earlier this year -- but insists she was in good shape before getting the surgery. Umm if she was in such good shape, then why did she go under the knife?

Zolciak, who gave birth to her twins Kaia and Kane 12 months ago, says that drinking shakes from 310 Nutrition is what keeps her slim -- AND WE BET THAT TUMMY TUCK DIDN'T HURT.


Another Victim From Bill Cosby's 2005 Rape Lawsuit Reveals Her Identity

Posted on Wed Nov 26th, 2014 9:40am PDT       By X17 Staff

Donna Motsinger, 73, of Taos, New Mexico has revealed that she was one of the 12 anonymous women who testified against Bill Cosby in the civil rape lawsuit filed by Andrea Constand in 2005.

Motsinger says she was Jane Doe number eight, and she claims she was drugged and raped by the Cosby Show star at a jazz club in Sausalito, California in 1971. The case against the actor was settled out of court in 2006, but after Cosby was back in the news this month, a number of women from the lawsuit have come forward.

Motsinger tells the New York Post:
    "I feel guilty not telling my story. I’m a coward over here. Those women are brave. It’s the least I can do. I want to tell people so [the victims] can’t be bullied, so they can’t be discredited."

Barbara Bowman, who also appeared as a witness in Constand's case, wrote an op-ed piece in the Washington Post earlier this month about her ordeal, and shortly after that, former publicist Joan Tarshis came forward and revealed that the former comedian assaulted her on two occasions in 1969. Former supermodel Janice Dickinson appeared on Entertainment Tonight last week and alleged that Cosby drugged raped her in 1982, and Renita Chaney Hill, Angela Leslie and Kristina Ruehli also came forward this week.

But despite all these women's statements, Cosby insists that he's innocent. His attorney, Marty Singer, told CNN on November 21, "The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity."

For the record, when we polled our X17 readers last week, a whopping 73% of you think he's guilty...


Do YOU think Bill Cosby's guilty?
Do YOU think Bill Cosby's guilty?
No; and it's character assassination to say he raped these women.
Yes; too many people are making claims. It must be true.

Khloe Kardashian Gives Kim Some Competition In The Booty Department

Posted on Wed Nov 26th, 2014 9:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

Her body is banging!

Khloe Kardashian headed to her daily gym session yesterday in L.A., and we don't think the reality star realized her leggings were totally see thru, but it's not like we're complaining! French Montana's lady love has a better backside than her sister Kimmy K!

With a figure this hot, it makes no sense to us why she's dating the "Don't Panic" rapper. She could do so much better! Although, the E! starlet might ditch her beau after she catches wind of his recent comments, in which he emphatically stated that he would never sign a prenup if they were going to get married.

She's a catch with a good personality and a super nice tush!


Eva Mendes Explains Daughter Esmerelda Amada's Unique Name

Posted on Wed Nov 26th, 2014 8:47am PDT       By X17 Staff

Emma Summerton

Eva Mendes, who gave birth to her daughter Esmerelda Amada Gosling, in September is finally breaking her silence on motherhood, her daughter's unusual name and her secretive pregnancy.

"I thought my wild nights were over but these are some of the wildest nights I've ever had," Eva revealed to Violet Grey's digital publication, The Violet Files.

While many of Hollywood's elite get help from one, two, three and even four nannies -- Ryan Gosling's lady love says the couple are doing it on their own, with help from their families. The new mom does confess she's been exhausted taking care of the wee one. And although she's currently a nanny-free mom, Eva did say she's open to one in the future, but for right now the actress believes the struggle is part of the process of being a mother.

"As far as a nanny or a night nurse, for me that part of being a mother at this early stage is the struggle of not being able to sleep and not knowing what I’m doing and really going through it with her and battling out those nights," said the 40-year-old.

The brunette beauty also revealed that thinking of her mother is what keeps her grounded when she feels overwhelmed with her newborn. "I cannot believe that by the time my mother was 24 she had three kids under the age of 4. ... She was in Cuba and totally alone. So when it’s the wee hours of the night and I’m feeling a bit insane, I think about her and realize that I have no right to complain about anything."

The Training Day star also talked about how she got through her super secret pregnancy, saying, "I have eight nieces and nephews, so my brothers and sisters know a thing or two about what to expect when you’re expecting. I have a very tight-knit family and the pregnancy brought us even closer together."

The Hitch actress also explained how she and Ryan selected their firstborn's memorable name, "We both love the Esmeralda character from the Victor Hugo novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame and just think it’s a beautiful name." She added, "Her middle is Amada, which was my grandmother’s name. It means 'beloved' in Spanish."


Lorde Dishes On Bestie Taylor Swift, Says The Two Bonded Over "Thick-A** Milkshakes"

Posted on Wed Nov 26th, 2014 7:44am PDT       By X17 Staff

Lorde appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday evening, and the 18-year-old New Zealand-born entertainer chatted all about her friendship with Taylor Swift.

So how did the two first come into contact? "She sent me some flowers, which was so nice," Lorde said. "She just sent them to my house and said like, 'Congratulations on everything.' I was like, 'God! I need to know more!'"

"We actually met up here in New York," Lorde continued. "We had Shake Shack, which I feel like is kind of a good bonding … a friendship like bonds with those thick-ass milkshakes." We'd love to know what the ladies chatted about!

So what's T. Swizzle's most endearing quality? "She's really funny and people don't expect it," Lorde said. "It's really dry and you're almost like, 'Wait… did I? Is that what you just… Did that just happen?"

And Taylor is also speaking out about her A-list gal pals! The superstar, who turns 25 next month, covers the new issue of ASOS and reveals that she's drawn to certain types of people. "My friends are the kind of people that have their own lives, and their own busy schedules, and that’s why we get along so well," she explains. "A lot of 'celebrities' surround themselves with these very chic cling-ons who don’t really have much of a job or a passion, they follow around their celebrity BFF and provide constant affirmation for them and I’m really not interested in that kind of deal." Hmm, wonder who she's taking a jab at here?

Taylor also says that her BFFs influence her fashion. "When I’m getting dressed, it’s always based on what my friend’s will think," she says. "They are my number one priority and the opinions of girls are more important to me at this point in my life."

Wonder what they'll think of these outfits for the mag? They're not her usual style, but maybe they should be?


Katy Perry Turns Heads At The ARIA Awards, But Loses Top Honor To One Direction

Posted on Wed Nov 26th, 2014 7:35am PDT       By X17 Staff

Katy Perry attended the 2014 ARIA Awards in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday, and the 30-year-old singer wowed in a sexy Jaime Lee two piece outfit. From the see-through side panels to her tiny waist peeking out, it looks like girlfriend has been busting her butt at the gym -- she looks incredible!

Katy was a presenter at the show, and while she was nominated for Best International Artist, she ended up losing that award to the boys of One Direction, all of whom showed up and hit the red carpet. Yup, even Zayn! Though he didn't look too happy about it...

The group performed "Steal My Girl," and after the show Niall Horan tweeted, "Just won an ARIA ! Yes bruu ! thank you to all the Aussie fans for voting for us! Love you!" Liam added, "Thank you so much Australia you guys are amazing another great day and another award huge!!!!!"

While Zayn Malik has been hit with reports that he's abusing drugs, we have to say, he did a pretty good job belting it out onstage:
