This clown knew how to liven up Khloe Kardashian’s and Kourtney Kardashian’s retail therapy for the ‘Keeping Up With Kardashian’ cameras! While the sisters were out shopping, with the camera crew in tow, a clown showered them with confetti out to the blue. Khloe reportedly “quickly took cover,” according to E! News, while Kourtney was “unfazed.” RELATED: Kim Kardashian gets flour bombed on red carpet.
Oh, Alec. Alec Baldwin had a rough time last year: he got into a couple more sidewalk scuffles, including one where he was videotaped hurling a homophobic slur at a paparazzo, that cost him his new show on MSNBC. Now the former ’30 Rock’ star has declared- on the cover of the New York magazine, no less- that he is DONE with public life. Alec wrote:
I’ve read where a number of people have felt that 2013 was a sh**ty year. For me, it was actually a great year, because my wife and I had a baby. But, yeah, everything else was pretty awful. And I find myself bitter, defensive, and more misanthropic than I care to admit. And I’m trying to understand what happened, how an altercation on the street, in which I was accused—wrongly—of using a gay slur, could have cascaded like this. There’s been a shift in my life. And it’s caused me to step back and say, This is happening for a reason.
I’ve had a relatively charmed life. I loved to be out in the city. New York was my town… people in general had been very kind to me for years.
And then, last November, everything changed…
I’m not a homophobic person at all. But this is how the world now sees me.
I haven’t changed, but public life has… Paparazzi today are part of a network that includes the Huffington Post and, much to my dismay, even NBC News, in their reliance on tabloid reporting. Photographers today get right up in your face, my wife’s, my baby’s. They are baiting you. You can tell they want to get into it with you…
I’m self-aware enough to know that I am to blame for some of this.
Alec recounted his version of the events with the paparazzo, saying he didn’t call him a homophobic slur but something else. Then he had some choice words about Shia LaBeouf (the two clashed so badly while preparing to work on a Broadway play that Shia left/was let go from the production).
When he showed up, he seemed like a lot of young actors today—scattered, as he was coming from making six movies in a row or whatever.
There was friction between us from the beginning. LaBeouf seems to carry with him, to put it mildly, a jailhouse mentality wherever he goes…
He had that card, that card you get when you make films that make a lot of money that gives you a certain kind of entitlement. I think he was surprised that it didn’t work in the theater.
Alec admits it’s “ironic” to talk about his decision to leave public life in a magazine but says this is the last time he’ll talk about his personal life in a publication. He says he plans to move out of New York City to LA. I wonder if this will come to pass? Alec had a rough year, there’s no question about that, but I can’t imagine him truly fading from public life. You really should read his entire article: he seems very sincere. I just suspect he’ll change his mind in a year or so. We’ll see, I guess.

We’ve ALL done this: parked a little closer to a wall than we realized. Hilary Duff just happened to have an audience with cameras (i.e., paparazzi) watching while she did it. Here she is getting ready to head into the gym. It looks like it was a bit of a struggle for Hilary to squeeze between her car and the wall of the gym.
What really stood out to me about these pictures, however, was Hilary’s chic outfit. LOVE the top and skirt. Her workout clothes must either be in a locker she has in the gym or in her bag. She certainly can’t be planning to workout in those heels! But I’m loving this outfit. Then again, I’m a fan of Hilary’s style.

A week after Rachel Frederickson caused some jaws to drop by winning ‘The Biggest Loser‘ with a total weight loss of 155 lbs, she’s speaking out to People. Rachel started the competition at 260 lbs (she’s 5′ 5″). She was 150 lbs by the time she became a finalist. The three finalists all go home and lose more weight on their own for the last three months in competition for a $250K grand prize. Rachel dropped another 45 lbs while at home, resulting in a final weight of 105 lbs, which is underweight for someone of her height. Rachel said she lost the weight by eating 1,600 calories a day and working out several times a day. She told People:
Maybe I was a little too enthusiastic in my training to get to the finale.”
When asked if she had an eating disorder, Rachel responded, “I am very, very healthy.” It’s a bit much to say she has an eating disorder! I still think she really wanted that $250K, and who wouldn’t? A producer for ‘The Biggest Loser’ said Rachel was monitored throughout her time on the show, including the time she spent at home, leading up to the finale.
Rachel passed all the required medical tests ensuring she was healthy.”
Regardless, Rachel’s trainer on the show, Dolvett Quince, said seeing her at the finale was a surprise.
The first thing that went through my mind was, ‘That’s just too much.’ “
Rachel may have overdone it a bit, but I think she wanted to win the show. I could see thinking, I’m going to lose every pound I can for the show, win the money, and get to a healthy weight afterwards. That’s why, personally, I think ‘The Biggest Loser’ needs to put in the caveat that contestants need to stay within the recommended weight range for their height/body frame, so someone who loses too much is disqualified. Some of you seemed to agree with me in our own INO polls ;).
