Ben Affleck Admits To Counting Cards In Blackjack, Says He's "Too Good" At Gambling

Posted on Thu Sep 18th, 2014 6:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

Ben Affleck is finally talking about the gambling scandal that got the Gone Girl actor banned from the Hard Rock casino in Las Vegas, among others, telling Details magazine: "I took some time to learn the game and became a decent blackjack player. And once I became decent, the casinos asked me not to play blackjack. I mean the fact that being good at the game is against the rules at a casino should tell you something about a casino. They don't want you have a sporting chance."

While counting cards isn't actually illegal, the actor drew the attention of all the Vegas casinos with his consistent success and because of his fame. At first the resorts courted the actor, but after they realized what a good player he was, they banned him: "They certainly offer you all kinds of stuff to show up. I think they're just hoping you're going to be some dumb celebrity that's going to dump money. And I guess I was that, until I figured it out and then they were like, ''F**k him, get him out of here."

So just what does wife Jennifer Garner think of the whole thing? She doesn't care -- at least so says Ben. He says she wasn't upset about him playing blackjack, counting cards, or being banned from the casinos.


Is Kylie Jenner Dating Tyga?

Posted on Thu Sep 18th, 2014 6:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

This is really creeping us out ... could 17 year-old Kylie Jenner be dating Tyga -- the 24 year-old rapper and former fiance of Kim Kardashian's BFF Blac Chyna??? Talk about friends sharing everything!

Our photographers spotted Tyga out at Katsuya Hollywood Tuesday night and apparently all the paparazzi outside were buzzing about the fact that he was dining with Kylie. Now, OK! magazine reports a source is telling them: "Kylie always had a crush on him; but as she got older and they started spending more time together, things took off romantically." Dang!

Tyga took to Twitter to deny the report, writing: "DONT BELIEVE THE RUMORS, BEEN FRIENDS WITH THE FAMILY FOREVER. WERE ALL JUST FRIENDS. [sic]. Rumors come and go. But you keep your shadow. Everywhere you go it follows."

Tyga split from fiancee Blac Chyna in August; the pair have a two year-old son King Cairo and had been dating for almost three years. The couple lived together in the same neighborhood as Kris Jenner -- hence Kim's frequent gym and salon trips with her fellow big-booty'd pal Chyna.

Kylie previously dated Will Smith's son Jaden -- though the two never confirmed their relationship. Before that, she was with teen heartthrob Cody Smith. She and sis Kendall have been known to party with Tyga and his friend Chris Brown -- as they did on Kylie's 17th birthday last month and at the opening of Tyga's clothing store Last Kings in February (below).

You think Tyga's the right guy for Kylie???


Jennifer Lawrence Suits Up In Menswear For New Dior Campaign

Kim Kardashian Finds A Way To Expose Even More Skin In Impossibly Tight Outfit

Posted on Wed Sep 17th, 2014 3:10pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Kim Kardashian and company headed to the studio in Los Angeles on Wednesday to record interviews for their reality TV show, and we know it's hot out, but did Kim REALLY need to tie a knot in her tank top to reveal her tummy? I mean, we know she's got a fantastic figure, but given how obscenely tight her skirt is, we don't see how this is comfortable ... or fashionable! (And on the off chance that the top was actually designed this way, she just needs to dress herself better.)

And as far as fashion fails go, Kourtney's outfit wasn't much better! Sure, she looks gorgeous and her maternity style is usually on point, but the back of this tunic looks like what she'll be wearing in the delivery room this fall when she gives birth to her third child!


Beyonce Tries To Refute Thigh Gap Photoshop Rumors With More Doctored-Looking Pics

Posted on Wed Sep 17th, 2014 2:26pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Someone should tell Beyonce if she's trying to deny Photoshop thigh gap rumors -- she probably shouldn't post more doctored-looking photos!

After posting pics from her birthday cruise around the Mediterranean, the 33-year-old was accused of Photoshopping a thigh gap in a bikini pic posted to her Tumblr account. Seemingly, in an attempt to shut down the rumors, Bey took to her site today and posted a handful of new pics, proudly displaying her legs -- but we think the pics look just as suspicious as the old one!

In one pic, Jay Z's lady love wears a matching tropical ensemble aboard the luxury yacht and in it her inner thigh looks -- weird! Is it the light reflecting off off her legs? Is it Photoshopped? What is going on here?! Are we the only ones that think this photo looks like it's been changed too! In the other snap, Beyonce's inner thighs are in the shade -- so we really don't see much.

Hey B, if you are going to prove to us you have a thigh gap -- maybe show us your thigh gap?


Do YOU think Beyonce's Photos Are Altered?

No way! The media is just making a fuss over nothing.
Yes! And badly, at that.
I can't tell ... but either way, she looks great!

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO - Melanie Griffith Says She's Replacing Her Antonio Tattoo With ... F*ck You?!

Posted on Wed Sep 17th, 2014 1:59pm PDT       By X17 Staff

She may be in her late fifties, but she's still pretty feisty!

On Wednesday morning Melanie Griffith hit the gym in Beverly Hills, and rather than covering up her infamous Antonio heart tattoo with a bandage, she gave us a peek at the results of her laser removal sessions. Melanie filed for divorce from estranged hubby Antonio Banderas in June, and the other day she briefly chatted with us about the process.

Today Mel told us it's "coming along," but when asked what she's going to "put on there next," she sweetly smiled and said, "F*ck you!" And we still love her...

This morning, the wigged beauty showed off her new figure and set of enhanced boobies as she posed in front of her mirror for an Instagram snap, and although she's open about getting plastic surgery on Don't Be Tardy, it almost seems as if she's hinting that her fab physique is the result of dieting!

"I'm loving my new swimsuits #havefaithswimwear thank you so much @jenniferstano... I feel so much better in a swimsuit now thanks to #310shakes @310nutrition vanilla is my favorite," she captioned the photo.

Fans aren't buying it, however, and the Internet is buzzing about another Photoshop job! Your move Bey!


Arnold Schwarzenegger And Maria Shriver's Divorce To Be Finalized By Christmas

Posted on Wed Sep 17th, 2014 12:55pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are finally saying, "Hasta la vista, baby," to their 28-year marriage.

The long married couple's highly publicized divorce is in its final stages and should be settled by Christmas. Three and a half years after separating, the duo is said to be splitting amicably after agreeing to divide their massive $400 million fortune.

According to California law, Shriver, who is believed to be worth $100 million, is entitled to half of Schwarzenegger's $300 million earnings from their 25-year marriage. The longtime duo split after Schwarzenegger's shocking affair with the family's housekeeper Mildred Baena hit the media.

A source told MailOnline "It's been a long road, for a long time it wasn't a priority for either of them, but the divorce is almost complete. The lawyers are just ironing out the final details. … If everything goes to plan it should be tied up by Christmas."

The source went on to say, "When you have large fortunes to divide and legacies for the children to agree on, things aren't always as clearly defined as you'd imagine … But Maria and Arnold have resolved their differences and are on speaking terms, they have four kids together after all."

Both couples have moved on ... Schwarzenegger has a new lady love -- physical therapist Heather Milligan. And Shriver is now dating ABC news political analyst Matthew Dowd, whom she debuted at a Robert Kennedy's wedding a few weeks ago in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Good for them!
