Shout Out To All The Momagers And Popagers: Celebs Whose Parents Managed Them All The Way To The Top
In the cutthroat world of show business, sometimes it’s comforting to have a familiar face and someone you can trust as part of the team. These 15 celebrities left their fate and careers into the hands of their parents and it served them well — very well.
Perhaps the mother of all momagers, Kris Jenner helped her Kardashian daughters become household names. In addition to launching the careers of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney as reality television stars, the Kardashians have segued into the world of fashion design. Ready to have the limelight to shine on her, Jenner has inked a deal for her own talk show. In 2011, it was reported that she was worth an estimated $20 million.

Husbands On Deck: Reports Claim Kim And Kanye Are Getting Married Immediately After Birth Of Their Child
After finally reaching a divorce settlement with ex Kris Humphries last month, rumor has it that Kim Kardashian is ready to be wifed up again, and very soon. But first thing first–she has to have that baby.
According to Radar Online, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will allegedly be trying to tie the knot in Los Angeles soon after their little one comes into the world. The source, an individual close to the Kardashians, told Radar that Kanye has signed off on “all of the stipulations,” and is down with whichever wedding planner Kim wants. However, he’s not about to have the ceremony become some sort of front-of-the-magazine spectacle, as her marriage to Kris Humphries was. No selling of wedding photos to any magazines for the sake of just having some extra pocket change. But they claim that he reportedly wants to do a short film (no word on what it will specifically be about), and any profits made would go to one of Kim’s charities of choice.
Word is, if the divorce paperwork is finalized in time (the baby is reportedly supposed to arrive in June, after she originally told the media July to throw folks off), all should be good to go. But until then, Yeezy will stay in Paris, doing whatever he’s doing…while Kim jets all over the world to be with him. Ready to pop.
It would be nice if before they actually married, they were in the same place together for more than a few days…I’m just saying. But we’ll have to wait and see what happens won’t we?
Before And After: Celebs Whose Style Has Drastically Improved, And A Few Who’ve Fallen Off In The Fashion Department
Oh the wonders a great stylist can work in one’s career. But don’t we all know what the lack of one can do for one’s style. Some of our favorite trendsetters didn’t necessarily start off the freshest, while ones who started off age appropriate and chic somehow ended up dressing like they picked their ensembles out in the dark. Check out a few celebrities whose style improved big time over the years, and a few who even with a bunch of money, downgraded, and still can’t seem to get it right.
It’s actually Solange’s style that has helped her create her own lane and identity outside of her very well-known big sister (that and her drastically different music). But she didn’t get to African-inspired prints, fab fros and chic pantsuits overnight. She had to wear a lot of satin, bountiful weaves and things that I’m sure she would probably cringe at now on the way up. Is that a feather purse above? Girl, no.
But luckily for her, her unique change in style has made her one of the best dressed people out there (it’s true, even Vogue said so) and is just one of many things that has helped her finally garner the respect she deserves.
I found this hilarious post from Awesomely Luvvie after asking the Google to explain to me Kim Kardashian’s fashion senselessness as of late:
“When it was announced that Kim Kardashian was pregnant by her not-husband, Kanye West, I just knew she already had her outfits selected for the next 9 months. She was gon be baby baking chic. I assumed. Not sure why, because her style right now ain’t much to love. Well, pre-Kanye, she was all bandage dress everything. Now, she’s been rocking black, white, tan and leather everything. I truly do not know why I was expecting her to be slaying in the fashion department because she was with child. BUT what I didn’t expect was for her to be dressing so terribly for her new body. Especially since she considers herself a stylist and fashionista. Kim’s growing BAWDY got her all messed up because she’s been making some TERRIBLE fashion choices, even more than usual.”
I am so glad someone else said it, now I won’t feel so bad – or at least if I am bad, I am certainly in good company. Kim K has got to be the worst dressed pregnant woman in history. Or to put it in better, more generous terms: Kim K’s pregnancy wardrobe is just missing the mark. Clearly, she is trying to maintain her sex symbol status, which is basically her bread and butter, all the way up until the moment the epidural kicks in. There is nothing wrong with that. We all have to make money and eat. But everything looks awkward, clingy and flat out unflattering. In short, there comes a point when the flaunting of the curvaceous pregnancy bod just comes off as tacky. And I’m sorry to say sweet apple of Ray J’s eye, you passed that point one too many bubblegum pink frocks ago.
I’m not going to go into every single fashion faux pas as Jezebel already has a pretty accurate pictorial of her offenses. And part of me feels horrible for having these thoughts about a pregnant lady. I mean, I do have sympathy for her. Unlike her sister Khloe, who benefited from having the perfect round stomach, the pregnancy is spreading her wide as oppose to outwards, as evident by this side by side picture of the pregnant sisters rocking the same outfit. If all of a sudden, your body changes and everything starts shifting around and getting bigger in ways that you never imagined, it can be difficult coming to terms with that. You’re basically having to engage in some body acceptance and relearn how to dress yourself all over again. At the same time, her appearance is a huge part of her career – some would say the basis for it – and I highly doubt she dresses herself. So if anyone should be getting a side-eye, it’s her hating-behind fashion team. And by team, I mean Kanye West.
I knew a woman, who was all about dressing fashionable and sexi while pregnant. Her thing was that she was about the heels, cleavage and fitted dresses prior to pregnancy – matter of fact it was the reason how she got into that position – and she was not going to stop being true to herself just because she is in the gestation period. She also said that putting stock in her appearance, particularly bringing the sexi back, helped her get through those times when she felt like Free Willy.
However unlike Kim, this woman didn’t try to squeeze into smaller pieces. Instead she acknowledged that physically she wasn’t the same, took a page out of some fashionable plus size friend’s look-book and dressed towards her new shape. She had picked outfits that while short, fitted and showed plenty of cleavage, didn’t stretch and snug itself across the love handles and more importantly, allowed her growing baby bump to move and flow freely. Whereas Kim has stuffed her baby in Spanx and calls it chic.
When I first heard that Ray J was releasing a song titled “I Hit It First,” I couldn’t say I was surprised. Ray J has always had a flair for the tacky. And it’s clear that he’s a bit bitter about the success that Kim Kardashian has achieved since their sex tape dropped in 2007. Upon further reflection, it’s become painfully clear to me that throughout his career– or time in the limelight– that Ray J has frequently relied on women to either advance his notoriety or keep his name in the media. In case you haven’t noticed this phenomenon, allow me to enlighten you.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s unborn child has been one of the most highly publicized and scrutinized pregnancies of 2013. As the popular couple prepare to welcome their new bundle of joy, we can only imagine that their rich and famous friends are prepared to spare no expense as they shower the parents-to-be with lavish baby gifts, but it seems that Kanye and Kim aren’t interested. TMZ is reporting that Kimye are actually turning away the high priced gifts being offered by their friends.
Instead, sources say that the Hollywood pair are requesting that their friends make donations to the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois close to where Kanye was raised.
We also hear the couple is doing everything to let be known that they do not have any type of baby registry with any company, despite a few fakes ones, which have been popping up on the web. Considering how wealthy Kanye and Kim’s friends are, this would be of great assistance to the hospital. Even though both Kanye and Kim have displayed some pretty outlandish and narcissistic behavior in the past, their decision to direct friends and family to the children’s hospital instead of hoarding gifts for their baby is very admirable to say the least. Last January the Carters reportedly racked up on a boatload of baby gifts from family and friends worth a whopping $1.5 million following the birth of their first child Blue Ivy Carter.
Representatives on behalf of the Lurie Children’s Hospital have yet to comment on the speculations.
“You’re Not Supposed To Be Skinny And Pregnant”: Are People Too Hard On Mothers-To-Be? Phaedra Parks Thinks So
If watching Kim Kardashian get called a whale on the cover of tabloids over the past few months, and watching everyone’s jaw drop at the pregnancy weight Jessica Simpson has gained with her first child and now her second, it’s clear that people no longer like to let pregnant people just be pregnant. Especially when they’re in the public eye. Let some cellulite come into view, have your breast grow a bit larger than expected, or your legs end up getting a little bigger, and people act like you’re just letting yourself go on purpose. As a mother-to-be to a second child, a little brother to son Ayden, Phaedra Parks has noticed this trend and it’s clear that she’s quite tired of it. In an interview with The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, when one of the personalities on the show said Phaedra looked good pregnant, but Kim Kardashian does NOT and that her weight gain was going to push Kanye away, she reminded the world that, “You’re NOT supposed to be skinny and pregnant,” so folks need to give women like her and Kim a break.
“I’m thin and pregnant. I’m a regular-sized woman. I’m all-natural. All this, God gave me, I grew it. And I mean, everybody’s not made to be skinny, everybody’s not made to be fat. So you gotta be happy [with] the skin you’re in. I’m advertising what’s real.”
“When women are pregnant, they are going through a whole transition. I’m growing a baby…People are too hard on pregnant women. Obviously you don’t want to gain a lot of weight but at the end of the day, some people do. It just happens. You’re not supposed to be skinny and pregnant.”
And on a side-note, Parks also opened up about Kenya More saying Phaedra was too big around the time she filmed her “Donkey Booty” tape for people to take it seriously. Parks revealed that she was actually three months pregnant when she put it together, but just hadn’t revealed that information to the world on the show. So boo to Ms. Moore…
Listen to the audio of her full interview over at The Rickey Smiley Morning Show website.
When it was first announced that R&B’s problem child Ray J aka Willie Norwood Jr. would be releasing a song titled, “I Hit it First,” reactions were mixed. Some bashed the 32-year-old Mississippi native for being so messy and thirsty for attention, while others applauded him for beating Kim Kardashian at her own game, garnering attention and money for their infamous sex tape. No matter which side of the fence you fell on, almost everyone could agree that no matter how good or bad the song was, it would more than likely be getting a lot of press and airtime due to its dramafied nature.
Once the song was finally released, fans of all things messy and ratchet were able confidently proclaim that little Willie did not disappoint. He pulled no punches with lines like “I had her head going north and her a** going south. But now baby chose to go West” and ”If you were to come back to me girl we’ll make another movie.”
If you thought the song’s lyrics were out of control, allow us to be the first to tell you that lyrics are only the beginning of this train wreck!
Turn the page to witness the debauchery for yourself. Would you say that Ray J went too far with the song and music video?
Is it just us or are celebrities these days making more headlines with Twitter shade than talent? These celebrities have made drama and pot stirring part of their personal brand.
People Want To See Her In A Bikini, Not In A Movie: Essence Atkins Discusses Tyler Perry’s Kim Kardashian Casting Flop
When it was first announced that Tyler Perry would be casting Kim Kardashian is his new movie, Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor, many began to question his motives and his judgement. Tyler later admitted to casting Kim because he desired to draw from her large fan base, including her 16 million Twitter followers. It doesn’t appear that casting Kim did much for ticket sales though, as Temptation didn’t perform as well as some of his previously released films when it came to box office numbers. Haunted House actress Essence Atkins recently hinted at her disapproval of these types of gimmicks and expressed that she hopes Hollywood learned a lesson from Tyler’s “experiment” during a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister.
“I found it interesting that Tyler did that with Temptation, hiring Kim Kardashian because she has 16 million Twitter followers, which would seem like a brilliant marketing plan. He has one of the biggest Twitter personalities out there in his movies, and he had one of the worst box office weekends.”
“It’s not a failure, but it did worse than his movies usually do just based on him. I thought that was an interesting finding. Your experiment didn’t work.”
She went on to say that just because reality stars are a hit on the small screen, doesn’t mean that their success will transfer to the big screen.
“People want to see good stories. It’s not necessarily that they want to see Kim Kardashian in a movie. They want to see her in a bikini. They want to see her with Kanye [West]. They want to see her on her show talking about her life with her sisters, but that doesn’t mean that they want to see her in a movie. The fact that people want to see their lives and the volatility of that…. I don’t’ think that it translates at all.”
What do you think of Essence’s comments?
