Some celebrities just tower over the rest. Standing at 5 feet and 11 inches or more, these 15 women command attention whenever they walk into a room.
Model turned mogul Kimora Lee Simmons put her stature to good use. Standing at an even six feet, Simmons got her start in modeling early on. By the time she was ten years old, Simmons was 5 feet, 10 inches tall. Her mother enrolled her into modeling classes at the age of 11 and soon after Simmons found herself in Paris. Growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, Simmons was picked on because of her ethnicity and height. The 37-year-old mother of three credits modeling with giving her the confidence that she has now: “[Modeling] was a real turning point for me because everything that people considered weird about me before, well, suddenly Karl Lagerfeld said it was OK. He’s one of the biggest names in fashion, so all of a sudden it gave me a validity and introduced me to a whole other world.”

Prince Charles first met Camilla Parker Bowles in 1970 at a polo match. Though they dated for a little while, both the Prince of Wales and Bowles went on to marry other people.

The Donald Is Trippin’ Again: According To Trump Beyoncé’s ‘Suggestive’ Halftime Performance Was Scandalous
It’s not surprising at all that big-mouthed billionaire, Donald Trump expressed his opinion on Beyoncé Knowles-Carter’s highly anticipated Super Bowl halftime show performance, as he seems to have no qualms with voicing his unsolicited opinions about any and everything. What was a bit surprising however, was how he felt about the performance. In a February 6th interview with Howard Stern, he expressed that he believed Bey’s performance to be inappropriate, but not before stating how much he likes her husband, Jay-Z.
“I like Jay-Z a lot, but I will tell you this, at the Super Bowl when Beyonce was thrusting her hips forward in a very suggestive manner, if someone else would have done that it would have been a national scandal. I thought it was ridiculous … I thought it was not appropriate.”
He went on to state that he felt as though he was one of few that took notice of her distasteful performance and how he couldn’t understand it because people have been ripped to shreds for less.
“I’ve seen things for far less that people have made a big deal out of, but I haven’t even heard anybody mention it. I think I may be mentioning it now to you for the first time… The way the ‘so and so’ was thrust forward continuously, I was saying “Give me a break”. There’s been no mention of [her scandalous behavior]. So obviously, it must not have been so bad. She gets a pass.”
Umm, thanks for your two cents Trump.
What do you think of his reaction to Bey’s halftime performance? Did you find it to be inappropriate at all?

NBC head Bob Greenblatt addressed Donald Trump’s offensive and downright nonsensical behavior during the Television Critics Association press tour this weekend, warning the blowhard that “if he becomes somehow hurtful and says or does things that cross a line, we would figure out what to do with that.” Hmm… more of a friendly reminder than a strongly-worded caution, but OK.
According to Deadline Hollywood, Greenblatt opened by saying “We live in this country where you can say anything you want as long as you are not harming other people. He has his political belief system but I really don’t think what he’s doing in his personal life is going to corrupt what he’s doing on the show.”
You’ll recall, the “Donald’s” final presidential election stunt was a call on President Obama to produce his birth certificate (again) in exchange for a $5 million charitable donation. That prompted a negative reaction from Barbara Walters, Brian Williams, (possibly) his kids, and the public, among others. Angelo Carusone started a petition to have Macy’s “dump Trump” and his many lines of clothing and accessories because of Trump’s attacks on women, “racially-charged birther conspiracy,” and hypocrisy. Carusone took his protest one step further right before Christmas, sending a mobile billboard to Macy’s headquarters in Cinncinnati to circle the building and call for Trump’s ouster. Macy’s hasn’t reacted besides issuing a lame statement but, at that time, The Hollywood Reporter said 680,000 people had signed the petition.
HuffPo Live commentators say that the warning will not likely amount to anything as long as The Apprentice TV franchise does well in the ratings. But Trump has been noticeably quiet over the past weeks, with only the occasional political tweet about taxes or Chuck Hagel’s nomination for Secretary of Defense. And the fact that Greenblatt talked about it at all means he is listening, if not to the protests then to the celebs who have given Trump the side eye.
Anyone out there plan to watch The Apprentice? Buy Trump items at Macy’s? We’ll take a pass.
NeNe Leakes Confirms That She’s Getting Married, Again, And Talks Donald Trump Claiming He Started Her Career
I used to wonder why people would go on a reality show with the attempt of progressing their careers. It just didn’t seem to make sense to me, but when you look at some celebrities, controversy would be the thing to not only build their career, but would also define it. Now there’s a difference of people who have been in controversial situations, and people who have used it to create or maintain their status in public appearance. We’re discussing the latter. Here is a list of famous people who seem to let their infamous behaviors open doors for them.
Comb-over king Donald Trump went on Twitter this weekend to deny a news report that says three of his kids — Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr. — held an intervention to tell their dad to stop talking smack about President Obama.
“They showed a lot of respect, but told him he’s worked too long and too hard to build up the reputation he has. They understand completely he’s always been outspoken and that he likes attention, but this is too much,” the paper reports.
Trump responded in three tweets this weekend, accusing the “dying paper” of having promised to kill the story but running it anyway, then denying that his kids would ever do such a thing because “it’s not in their nature.”
You’ll recall that Donald Trump’s last attempt to goad President Obama into the tired (and offensive) discussion of where he was born was with the promise of a charitable donation. It was widely criticized for not only being out of line but senseless since the President already produced his birth certificate.
Whether the story is true of not, the damage to Trump’s brand over his continued birther talk has already been done. Once a serious candidate for the Republican presidential nomination (remember that?!), he’s now lost his political credibility, reduced to a sideshow loud mouth on government issues. Though he continues to share his thoughts about how to handle the US economy, he’ll never have the ear of a serious political contender again, let alone be one himself. What’s left of his reputation lies with his television program, his name attached to various real estate ventures (which have their financial ups and downs), and his Macy’s line, which was also the subject of a petition.
Sadly, we don’t think Trump will disappear. But, if we’re lucky, the volume of his voice will be turned down.
The online petition urging Macy’s to break ties with Donald Trump has moved to social media. Earlier this week, an online petition was started, encouraging the retailer to drop Trump’s line of clothing and fragrances, after the mogul’s antics around the election.
“Macy’s marketing and merchandise offerings are not representative of any political position. Many of the individuals associated with products sold at Macy’s – or at any retailer, for that matter – express personal opinions that are not related to the merchandise we sell or to the philosophies of our company.”
Interestingly, for all his bluster, Trump and his special counsel have not responded to requests for further comment on the matter. But he did comment earlier this week on Twitter, “My fragrance–”Success”– is flying off the shelves @Macys. The perfect Christmas gift!”
Moving into the holiday season, we’ll guess Macy’s doesn’t want a ton of customers boycotting its stores. Another guess, they may have told Trump to shut his yap in the hopes this will die down. Do you think it will?
