[Watch] Wendy Williams Eats A Crow After Losing Bet About Kim & Kanye Actually Making It Down The Aisle

Last year, Wendy Williams made a bold declaration. The daytime TV host was under the impression that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s engagement was a sham and expressed extreme doubt about the high-profile pair actually making it down the aisle. However, her suspicions turned out to be incorrect.  Kim and Kanye exchanged vows during an Italian wedding ceremony.

“I could be wrong, and if I am let it be known on today, Monday June 24th, if I am wrong and they actually get married, I will eat crow right here on this stage… with a lot of hot sauce.”

She later noted that she would chow down on the bird on the couple’s “73rd day” of marriage. Well, the time has come for Wendy to eat her words, literally. For the new season of her daytime TV show, Wendy tried crow gumbo prepared by a gourmet chef.

“So last season of the show I made a bet that Kim and Kanye’s marriage wouldn’t last longer than 72 days and I told you that if it did, I’d eat crow. That’s an expression we use; that’s not something we’re supposed to do! But I lost the bet,” she explained before introducing Chef Kevin Burrows.

Once the dish was prepared, Wendy dug in.

“It tastes kind of like chicken liver. You know, it’s not so bad,” she expressed.

“But there you go, I’m a woman of my word.”

Of course, Wendy couldn’t allow the segment end without resorting to her usual shenanigans.

“Just because they’re married doesn’t mean they’re happy! We’re watching you for the next 73 days Kardashian-West,” she concluded.

Oh, Wendy!

Pharrell and Anna Wintour Helped Name North West!

In a recent interview with GQ, Kim Kardashian revealed North West received her famous name because of Pharrell Williams and Anna Wintour!

Kim told GQ,

“It was a rumor in the press and we’d never really considered it seriously, at all, but Kanye and I were having lunch right over there at that table about a year ago and Pharrell Williams came over to us and said ‘Oh, my God, are you guys really going to call your daughter North? That is the best name.’ I said ‘No we’re not, that’s just a rumor,'”

 “Then a little while later Anna Wintour came over and asked the same thing. She told us ‘North is a genius name.’ Kanye and I looked at one another and just laughed. I guess at that point it sort of stuck,”

Kim also revealed her and Kanye West decided on the name of baby North at the Mercer Hotel in New York City.

It looks like North has another cool story to add to her life story.

Jill Scott, Jennifer Lawrence & The A-Lister Nude Photo Leak: Is It Even Worth It To Take Nude Photos?

Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Arianna Grande, Amber Heard, Victoria Justice, Kim K., Mary E. Winstead, and now songstress Jill Scott are the latest A-list celebrity victims to have their privacy invaded by way of a nude photo leak. More than 100 household names were targeted by hacker thieves, including Gabrielle Union, Keke Palmer and Rihanna, and many more stars sit in fear that they might be next.

It should go without saying that these victims should not be blamed or slut-shamed after being violated and having private photos distributed to the masses against their will. To claim “It’s their fault for taking the picture in the first place” or ask, “What kind of honorable woman takes naked pics?” directly contradicts the reality of female sexuality and denies the common uses of technology for pleasure in today’s society. The only person at fault is the perpetrator/violator. And the punishment for such an egregious and adolescent act should be jail time and a swift and merciless kick to the center of that person’s chest.

The rapid cyber-attacks, possible system-wide breaches and/or individual attacks on personal Apple iCloud accounts have put many on the offensive, and it has forced countless celebrities and non-celebrities, alike, to ask: is it even worth it to take a nip shot for the boyfriend if it means that one day it might end up on the desktop of every perv from here to Cape Town? Couples and lovers must decide if a tawdry photo that’s meant to entice a sexual partner today may be used against them tomorrow.

Revenge porn is real; on a daily basis, thousands of men and women have their rights and privacy violated when a disgruntled ex or perverted stranger takes it upon himself to share unauthorized photos with unintended audiences. Those explicit images can ruin careers, relationships and lives, and it compromises a person’s self-esteem and promotes distrust and self-loathing. Numerous individuals have attempted suicide after such a breach, fearing that they will never live down the shame of the nude images poached and shared on the internet.

Now, individuals have to question if they can trust, not only lovers and friends, but the penetrable technology that’s meant to keep their digital secrets safe. They have to decide if they have enough faith in humanity to share private photos in a click-baiting, technology-driven world that’s hell-bent on making every image a shareable meme.

For those in a relationship, and for many who are not, the answer isn’t so simple. Snapshots of their naked bodies already live on the devices of loved ones, so it isn’t simply a matter of opting not to take anymore  nude photos but trusting that ones that already exist won’t ever live outside of a personal photo gallery. And not sending nude photos or videos may be problematic for many couples separated across the country who wish to maintain a sexually intimate connection in lieu of a physical one.

There’s no solution to this problem other than people not being evil human beings. Men and women are going to keep snapping photos of their naked bodies, as they rightfully should. But, the risk is that they’re vulnerable. The human body is nothing to be ashamed of, but considering the weaknesses in the technology that serves the population, many might want to think twice before taking a photo in a tailored birthday suit. What do you say? Do you think it’s worth it to take nude photos?

‘Pregnant & Dumped:’ Kimye Latest Target For Breakup Rumors

Gossip tabloids have been especially focused on divorce rumors lately. Although the Jay Z and Beyoncé breakup rumors don’t appear to be true, sadly, the Nick and Mariah ones were. Now, there’s a new rumor: Kim and Kanye are already headed for splitsville. While the two have not even been married for a full year yet, Life & Style is reporting that the Hollywood couple’s marriage is already deteriorating.

In their September 8 issue, which has a headline that reads, “Pregnant & Dumped,” the magazine claims that Kim and Kanye have been doing a lot of arguing about their future. Sources allege that things have gotten so bad between the two that it’s only a matter of time before one of them files for divorce. However, it won’t be as easy for Kim to walk away from this marriage like she did with her last one because she’s supposedly pregnant again.

A rep for Kim recently spoke to RumorFix and explained that while Kim does want a second child, she is not currently pregnant. As for the breakup rumors, the rep says that those are false as well. Kim also took to Instagram to shut down the rumors in a subtle way.

“On my way bae,” she captioned a photo of herself using her cell phone.

Maintaining a healthy relationship takes work, but being in a high-profile relationship has to make things even more difficult.

How Cute Is North West In Her Ripped Denim

I cannot take North West’s cuteness.  Little North is beautiful, the perfect combination of her mother and father. Recently, North and her mother Kim Kardashian were spotted in La Jolla, California.

Apparently, North has got this walking thing down because Kim, instead of carrying her let her stretch her baby legs on the sidewalk.

The two wore similar outfits with rips in their denim.

The paparazzi caught the one year old taking a couple of steps in her white tank top before Kardashian picked her up.

Too precious.

Nick Cannon Confirms Separation From Mariah Carey: “We Have Been Living In Separate Houses For A Few Months”

We told you earlier today that TMZ reported Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s relationship as being on the outs, and that they already have attorneys working on property settlements and custody agreements. While it’s not 100 percent clear whether or not the couple will really end their marriage of six years, Cannon is now confirming that things between them aren’t well and that at this point, he is just trying to do what’s best for his children, Monroe & Moroccan. This is what he had to say exclusively in a statement to The Insider With Yahoo today:

“There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months.

My main focus is my kids.”

Cannon reportedly told The Insider that cheating was not the cause for the troubles, as rumors swirled that Mimi hired a security guard to keep an eye on him and make sure he was being faithful (and she did say back in 2011 that she could only trust him “sometimes“). But he didn’t say anything about the effect his past comments about sex with his exes (including Kim Kardashian) and sex with Carey might have had on their relationship. He did say earlier in the year that she wasn’t too crazy about him divulging that information to the public.

“She (Mariah) said to me, ‘Oh yeah, by the way, could you keep your whore-ish past to yourself if you’re doing any interviews?’ I was like, ‘Got you.’”

We’re hoping these two can work things out, especially for the sake of “Dem Babies.”

A big booty certainly does make a person stand out, but can it make them an asset around the office? Granted we better ourselves as professionals by strengthening our skill sets and advancing our education — there’s no denying that physical attributes can come into play. Does having a huge tush mean you can be more successful? It sounds silly though it doesn’t seem to hurt when it comes to pop culture.

Here’s a look at 10 celebrities with big butts. Obviously there are a lot more, but we didn’t have enough room for all those butts! Do you think their donk has made them successful?

So Kim Kardashian Is Supposedly Waiting On A Public Apology From Beyonce

From the moment it was announced that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were getting married, people began speculating about whether or not Jay Z and Beyonce would be participating in the ceremony. So when the hip hop couple pulled a no-show on the day of the wedding, it was a snub heard all over the world. While the it seems Kimye got hitched ages ago, according to sources, newlyweds are still somewhat upset with The Carters for deciding not to attend the star-studded ceremony.

“Kim is done playing nice,” a supposed “friend” of Kim told In Touch Weekly. “Beyoncé humiliated her.”

The snitch went on to claim that Kim will “will never forgive Beyoncé unless she gets a public apology. Another source claimed that Kim probably won’t get the apology she’s hoping for because Beyonce is not fond of her to say the least.

“Beyoncé can’t stand Kim,” the insider claimed. “She thinks Kim got famous from a sex tape, while Beyoncé has worked since she was 5 to get to where she is today. Beyoncé thought that being photographed at Kim’s wedding would have made Kim look good and her look bad.”

While Kim may have felt a bit slighted by Bey and Jay pulling a no-show at her wedding, I highly doubt that that she’s walking around demanding a public apology. Not to mention that Bey sent her love and well wishes to both Kim and Kanye on the day of their wedding.

What do you think?
