The catfight between NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore is starting to get ugly!
Yesterday Moore posted a pic of a cease and desist letter from Leakes on Instagram and wrote, "I guess this is @neneleakes way of saying happy birthday! #RHOA #HypocrisyAtItsBest #byegirl #SheTriedIt #SoNastySoRude." Just to be fair to Nene, Kenya posting it online isn't exactly helping the situation, but she didn't look flustered at all when she stopped by the Extra set in Los Angeles later in the evening!
The photo shows a document which is titled, "RE: DEMAND TO CEASE AND DESIST DEFAMATORY STATEMENTS," and it goes on to say:
"Mrs. Leakes has learned that you have engaged in making false, destructive, and defamatory statements," the letter to Moore reads. "These statements have been made directly, by implication and innuendo during television broadcasts and through social media and the BravoTV blog. You are hereby directed to cease and desist making any and all false and defamatory statements, which are injurious to her character and reputation.
"Your postings on BravoTV have been false, malicious and ostensibly made with the intent to cause damage to her reputation by exposing her to public hatred, contempt and ridicule, and injuring her in her trade and/or profession. Particularly, your statement was made with the intent to directly injure and defame Mrs. Leakes and the perception of her in the broadcast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA), her brand as a member of the cast, and her brand in the entertainment and celebrity industry in general."
Leakes didn't respond directly to Moore's post, but she did tweet, "The Thirst Is Real! They need me for press because they can't get none." Yes they do!

Blondes may have more fun, but Justin Bieber is definitely over the platinum blonde 'do. For the second time in the five days, the "Baby" hitmaker hit up salon Nine Zero One in West Hollywood on Tuesday. It seems like it's taking a lot of time and effort the heart breaker to transition back to his brown tresses.
As the 20-year-old left the salon he made quite a scene putting up cushions around his head so no one could see his new coif. Umm ... nice cushions! Couldn't you just leave the salon without taking half a couch with you?!
While we love the singer, that's a lot of hair maintenance for a dude with not that much hair. But he is the Biebs and those locks are what made him famous -- so we get that he has to protect his assets!
Yesterday Madonna uploaded a video on Instagram of her 14-year-old son Rocco break dancing shirtless, and this isn't the most controversial thing she's posted lately, but we have to wonder why she's posting content like this on social media. Of course, here we are talking about it...
And speaking of sharing personal things, Madonna reveals that she nearly lost her sh*t when her oldest daughter Lourdes went away to college. "It's hard letting them go out into the world but when she left home to go to college I was a mess," the queen of pop said during a sit down with Australia's Today Show on Wednesday. "It was really hard letting her go. I've come to terms with it but yes I miss her and she's a part of me, it was like losing my arm." Aww! Who know Madge could be so mushy?!

After a quick trip to Paris, Kendall Jenner and mama bear Kris Jenner brought their not-to-be missed fashions to LAX. For the flight, Kendall opted for a fringe jacket and ripped up jeans, while the 59-year-old cougar decided to wear a polka dot fur coat that only Cruella DeVil would approve of ...
These two definitely know how to grab attention! Really we're just glad Kris finally put some pants on!
It was a whirlwind trip to the City of Lights for the mom and daughter . On Tuesday, the 19-year-old showed off her catwalk strut (and her boobs) when she walked it out in a sheer top and full floral skirt at Chanel's Paris Fashion Week Show.
We were surprised to see that Kim wasn't in the audience to support her sister, but Kendall told The Cut in November that she doesn't always want her big sister at her shows. Fashion's newest "It" girl explained to the mag, "[Kim has] called me before and was like, 'Hey I was invited to the show, I just wanted to let you know. Do you want me to come?' and I was like, 'No.'"
It seems as though the leggiest member of the Kardashian klan isn't always so eager to be part of the famous fam.
"I want to be high fashion. I want to be taken seriously. People think that this [success] just came to me. But it didn't. What I have has almost worked against me," she explained.
Oh yeah it must be sooooo hard for you, Kendall ...

Angelina Jolie returned from her latest humanitarian visit in Iraq yesterday, but clearly the trip left quite an impression on the actress. Jolie penned an op-ed about her experience for the New York Times, which was published on Tuesday, and she details the atrocities of what the Syrian refugees are enduring.
"I have visited Iraq five times since 2007, and I have seen nothing like the suffering I'm witnessing now," she writes. "For many years I have visited camps, and every time, I sit in a tent and hear stories. I try my best to give support. To say something that will show solidarity and give some kind of thoughtful guidance. On this trip I was speechless."
Jolie was appointed as Special Envoy of UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres in 2012, and prior to that she was a Goodwill Ambassador for over ten years. The actress visited the Khanke Camp for Internally Displaced People on Sunday, where she spoke with victims of ISIS.
"What do you say to the 13-year-old girl who describes the warehouses where she and the others lived and would be pulled out, three at a time, to be raped by the men?" she continued. "When her brother found out, he killed himself. How can you speak when a woman your own age looks you in the eye and tells you that her whole family was killed in front of her, and that she now lives alone in a tent and has minimal food rations?"
Jolie concludes by asking that the world take a stand and get involved in defending the refugee camps. "What does it say about our commitment to human rights and accountability that we seem to tolerate crimes against humanity happening in Syria and Iraq on a daily basis? It is not enough to defend our values at home, in our newspapers and in our institutions," she writes. "We also have to defend them in the refugee camps of the Middle East, and the ruined ghost towns of Syria."

While cruising around Malibu on Tuesday afternoon, Bruce Jenner gave us a peek at his VERY plump pout. And not only that, but his lips appeared shiny and red in spots -- did the reality TV dad go get his lips done?! It certainly looks that way.
Seeing as Bruce reportedly had surgery to get his Adam's apple shaved down, he's not shy about getting a little bit of nip/tuck, but trying to keep up with Khloe, Kim and Kylie's mouths isn't really the best look for the former Olympian. And seeing as this happened right after Kim Kardashian's interview with Entertainment Tonight, in which she said she supported him on his "journey," it seems like there will be even more changes in the future!
Shortly after Bruce returned home, Kim stopped by her stepdad's Malibu pad to visit, and her lips looked suspiciously large as well! Did she get a twofer deal with Bruiser?! But a swollen mouth was the least of her concerns, as she was pulled over by a motorcycle cop several hours later. Eyewitnesses say the bootilicious star was busted for making an illegal U-turn, but it's not clear whether she was actually ticketed.

Even after getting off a flight from the Middle East, Angelina Jolie still manages to retain her movie-star status. Damn her!
On Tuesday afternoon, the Oscar winner, who is a UN Envoy, touched down after a two-day trip to Iraq. For the flight, Angelina suited up in an all-black ensemble, consisting of black jeans, black boots. A flight from the Middle East to Los Angeles usually takes over 23 hours -- so we definitely understand why Brad Pitt's lady love would want something comfy! But she certainly isn't sacrificing comfort for style in this understated, but still sexy ensemble.
During her charity trip, the mother of six visited refugees living in an abandoned school in Al Qosh, Iraq. During her whirlwind trip to war-torn country, the 39-year-old visited the Iraqi refugees, who are members of the minority Christian community.
In addition, Angelina traveled to the Kurdistan Region of Iraq to offer support to 3.3 million displaced people.
At a press conference at the Khanke Camp for Internally Displaced People (IDPs) in Dohuk Governorate, the A-lister spoke about what has happened to the middle eastern country since she last visited in 2012. "Since I was last here in Iraq, another two million people have been forced from their homes, mostly in the last six months – this time Iraqi citizens," said Jolie.

Grunge rock is never over when you are the daughter of Kurt Cobain ...
Frances Bean Cobain, who looks thinner than we've ever seen her, and her longterm boyfriend, Isaiah Silva, landed at LAX on Monday night looking like they stepped out of the "Smells Like Spirit" music video. The only thing missing is a plaid shirt!
A stringy-haired Frances and her main man were paying tribute to her father's famous era by rockin' some seriously '90s gear at the Los Angeles. The rock progeny donned a Dolly Parton t-shirt, while Isaiah held '90s-strong with a Beavis and Butthead shirt.
Over the weekend, Frances and her famously flawed mother, Courtney Love, reunited in public for the first time in more than 5 years. Despite the estrangement, the pair were all smiles for the camera at Saturday's world premiere screening of the upcoming Kurt Cobain documentary, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck at the Sundance Film Festival.
