Kim Kardashian Outrages PETA After "Intrusive" And "Dangerous" Dolphin Riding Video

Posted on Fri Aug 1st, 2014 8:50am PDT

Uh oh! Kim Kardashian just got on PETA's bad side!

On Tuesday, the Keeping up with the Kardashians star shared a short clip of herself and her friend, jewellery designer Kristen Gipson, being pulled around by a dolphin in a pool while in vacation in Mexico.

Nori's mom shared the video along with the caption, "Double dolphin ride 🐬🐬 with @kristennoelgipson Thank you Vallarta Adventures for teaching us so much! Can't wait to show my daughter the pics of her swimming with dolphins & kissing a sea lion when she gets older! #ThanksForTheMemories #Mexico."

But not everyone's so happy about her joy ride with the dolphins. Apparently, her trip around the pool has angered animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) -- the group is slamming the star's support of dolphin ride excursions, claiming that the animals are stressed and can get illness from close contact with humans. WHAT DID YOU DO TO FLIPPER, KIM?!

PETA's Senior Vice President Lisa Lange told Radar, "Kim is free to leave the pool, but for the dolphins, it’s a lifetime sentence. Touch tanks and 'swim-with' programs allow the public to pet, kiss, or even 'ride' dolphins. Such programs invade the animals' already diminished worlds and are intrusive, dangerous, and stressful for the animals as well as for human participants."

Lange added: "Animals in 'petting pools' can become injured and anxious as a result of constant poking and prodding, and exposure to bacteria that they are not immune to can make them ill. The dolphins also often express their frustration through aggression."

The vid was taken last month when Kimye was on vacay in Mexico with their daughter and several friends.

The 33-year-old has yet to comment on PETA's attack.

Chris Brown And Karrueche Tran Break Up Because He Liked Instagram Pictures Of Rihanna

Posted on Fri Aug 1st, 2014 8:15am PDT

Social media has just ruined dating! Then again, Chris Brown would probably find a way to ruin just about anything...

Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran have broken up yet again after Chris reportedly liked two fan photos on Instagram of Rihanna and him from back in the day, according to TMZ. Not only that, but Chris took one of Karrueche's friends with him to St. Tropez, and he made a point of being photographed with the chick. So how did Karrueche react? She changed her phone number so he couldn't get a hold of her! Might this have something to do with the fact that Chris tweeted yesterday, "These hoes ain't loyal but my fans damn sure are!" That's Karrueche's "friend" on the far right ...

The website reports that Karrueche has been happy for a while because acts "like a child" and because she thinks he's ruining his life by spending more time partying than working on his music. But is this REALLY the end for them? They're almost as bad as Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, so we feel like a reunion is imminent...


Selena Gomez Wears Super Short-Shorts ... Is She Trying To Make Justin And Orlando Jealous?

Posted on Fri Aug 1st, 2014 7:30am PDT

She knows what she likes!

Selena Gomez got a bit liberal with her wardrobe on Thursday when she sported some super short shorts along with a plaid button up and fringed black leather jacket while on her way to a meeting.

The 22-year-old entertainer just got back from her birthday vacation but has arrived in the press once again over an alleged love triangle that nearly came to blows between Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom.

Though she has came out and said nothing occurred with her and the Lord of the Rings actor, one must still wonder what her role was in the overseas fracas.

Maybe time will tell!


Rihanna Rolls Up Her Sleeves For Dinner In The Big Apple

Posted on Fri Aug 1st, 2014 7:00am PDT

She can be casual too!

Last night, Rihanna toned down her normal choice of attire as she went to dinner in a striped button up and jeans to go with some simple black heels.

The 26-year-old singer dined at Italian eatery Da Silvano in Manhattan's West Village, showing that even she can keep it covered up when the occasion calls for it.

This will probably be one of her more comfortable times eating as she's about to embark the Monster tour with Eminem, which kicks off on August 7 at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles.

Nothing can keep her from Italian food before that tour!

Posted on Fri Aug 1st, 2014 6:30am PDT

Who wouldn't!?

Avril Lavigne received a stunning 14-carat pear-shaped diamond ring when Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger proposed to her last year. So how did the rocker top things for their one year anniversary? By giving the singer a huge 17-carat diamond ring!

"I still can't believe my 1 year anniversary gift," the 29-year-old posted on July 31 to her Twitter feed. "17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby."

According to experts, Avril's ring could be worth several hundred thousand dollars up into the millions as "emerald diamonds are one of the most classic and elegant cuts."


Adrienne Bailon Backs Her Rob Kardashian Comments

Posted on Fri Aug 1st, 2014 6:00am PDT

She's not one to back down!

Adrienne Bailon appears to be standing by her comments about Rob Kardashian on Thursday, a day after sister Kim and Khloe came to his defense.

"Fame and career are two different things. I've always had a career. I have been working hard since I was 15 years old. Being someone's 'girlfriend' was never what I wanted to be famous for," the 30-year-old entertainer wrote. "What makes you 'famous' isn't always what you want to be 'labeled' as, or known for. If anyone should understand that…It should be you."

This all started after Bailon admitted to Rob being "disloyal" during their relationship in an interview with Latina magazine. Both of his sisters made their feelings clear via Twitter, but that didn't stop the former Cheetah Girls singer to speak her mind.

"I also stated in the article that none of this would have stopped me from being in love and being in that relationship. I just would have gone about it differently," she said. "You can love someone just as much in private. We all learn from our first loves."


Kim Kardashian Jets Off To Ibiza With Mom Kris Jenner

Posted on Thu Jul 31st, 2014 2:54pm PDT

On Thursday afternoon Kim Kardashian departed from Los Angeles International Airport with mom Kris Jenner and little sister Kendall, and the ladies caused absolute mayhem with photographers when they made their way through the terminal. Everyone wants a piece of the first family of reality TV!

The ladies are en route to Ibiza, Spain where they will meet up with Kanye West for the weekend. Geez, who isn't in Ibiza right now!? Between Bieber and Chris Brown, some of Hollywood's finest are certainly partying it up over there. We're guessing Kimye will have their own place, so does that mean Kendall will be forced to hang out with her mom the entire time? Hopefully not ... but you know Kylie is pissed she didn't get to go!


Report: Jessica Simpson Becoming Diet Freak, Wants To Weigh 93 Pounds

Posted on Thu Jul 31st, 2014 11:35am PDT

She needs to be careful not to go too far!

Jessica Simpson reportedly wants to lose even more than the 50 pounds she's already shed since giving birth to son Ace, and considering the Weight Watchers spokeswoman is currently in the best shape of her life, it seems she's become obsessed with her size!

"She's been the smallest she's been in years, and she still doesn't think it's good enough. She is determined to get even thinner," a source tells In Touch.

The mother-of-two has transformed her love of food into a love of extreme fitness to achieve her shocking slim down.

"Jessica wants to get down to 93 pounds. She's become an exercise addict. She walks six miles a day, strength-trains three times a week and constantly runs on a treadmill. She's gotten so carried away, she's fainted on a few occasions," the source adds.

The fashion mogul has allegedly cut sugar, soy, carbs, red meat, and processed foods out of her diet, but one thing she can't bring herself to part with is alcohol! "She still likes to drink, so if she has a cocktail, she won't eat! She never wants to be made of for her weight ever again," another insider dishes.

We think you look beautiful just the way you are, Jess!
