Khloe Kardashian Explains Why It’s OK For Kris Jenner To Call Her “Fat”

Khloe Kardashian has long been open about the fact that, at 5’10” tall, she doesn’t have her sisters’ petite, curvy frames. Apparently, “momager” Kris Jenner has even gone so far as to warn her when her weight’s getting up there, even on national TV. Khloe defended her mother for the public criticism.

“Listen, my mom believes in us more than we believe in ourselves. But she is also our manager and trying to protect our brand. She’ll say, ‘Oh, you’re a little too fat right now.’ If she were just my manager, I’d have fired her right then. You can’t talk to me like that.”

I have to say, it makes me feel a little sad hearing Khloe talk about her mother protecting the Kardashian “brand.” I guess that’s one of the hazards of going into reality TV and having your mother be your manager. They’re making plenty of money, though, so I guess they feel it’s worth it. You can’t accuse Khloe of being disloyal, that’s for sure!

Lauren Conrad Opens Up About Her Body Insecurities To Glamour

Lauren Conrad opened up to Glamour magazine about her body insecurities. I’m guessing she’s handling them well, though: she posed topless for their May issue! I don’t have the rights to the cover, but you can see it here.

“On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually I’m just petrified. A couple of years ago someone zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it really personally. I haven’t worn a bathing suit in L.A. in years because of that.”

I’ve wondered how that type of scrutiny effects celebs. It is so mean! Lauren also shares some secrets about her time on ‘Laguna Beach’ and ‘The Hills.’

“During shooting, the producers would send us quick text messages telling us what to talk about. They couldn’t walk through the shot, so they’d just text me, like, ‘Say something quick about this story line.’ That’s why we were always checking our phones!”

So it’s scripted on-the-fly? Big surprise!

Kim Kardashian Touches Down At LAX

Kim Kardashian was spotted arriving in LA at LAX last night. She doesn’t look too upbeat. Maybe the ongoing divorce/annulment saga with Kris Humphries is getting her down?

Or drama with her sister Khloe? Or topping Forbes’ Overexposed Celebs List? Ever since her decision to divorce Kris, Kim hasn’t had an easy time of it. She’s well-acquainted with the unpleasant side of being in the public eye at this point.

Kristin Cavallari’s Family Loses Laguna Beach Mansion

This is from back in the day, but remember when Kristin Cavallari first stepped before the cameras, for ‘Laguna Beach: The Rea Orange County’? Remember that sick mansion the then-high school student lived in with her family? Well, according to TMZ, Kristin’s family has lost the mansion.

…the bank recently foreclosed on the property because, according to official documents, KC’s father Dennis failed to make payments on the $7,599,458.66 he owed on the place.

And now it’s too late for the Cavallari’s to get the place back … because the house was sold at a public auction just last month for $6.1 mil.

Ouch. Everyone truly is struggling in this economy. The mansion reportedly has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, an infinity pool, yoga room, wine cellar, dry sauna, and some amazing oceanfront views. Kristin’s rep hasn’t returned calls for a comment, but she’s probably focused on other things.

Tori Spelling Says This Is Her Best Pregnancy Yet

I’m still reeling from the news that Tori Spelling is pregnant with her fourth child. She just gave birth to Hattie six months ago! Tori and Dean McDermott weren’t kidding when they said they were ready for baby #4 ;). Yet Tori said this is her best pregnancy yet (although she still looks tired to me).

“This is actually the best pregnancy I’ve had so far out of all of them. Knock on wood. [I have] no morning sickness and I have energy. [It's the] total opposite than other three.”

Between having a baby, two older kids to take care of, and preparing for the launch of a new show on TLC called ‘Craft Wars,’ that is a blessing! Crafts, by the way, are no mystery in the Spelling-McDermott household.

“We are a very crafty family. “[My husband] Dean [McDermott] is super crafty! He’s the builder in our family. He’s amazing at building things and painting them, and then I decorate them. We are a great team. Liam and Stella love to get creative. We craft every weekend.”

‘Craft Wars’ is a competition show, pitting three crafters against each other in various challenges. I just hope Tori doesn’t wear herself out with all she has going on!

Bethenny Frankel Heads Out For The Day

Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy (who seem to be experiencing quite a bit of marital strain these days) were spotted leaving their apartment separately. Hopefully those two are able to work things out, either in front of or away from the cameras, for the sake of their daughter.

Bethenny looked as pulled together as always in her pleated skirt, matching black jacket, and white top. Very crisp. And she added some color with that bag.

['The New Normal' is] about a blended family of a gay couple and their surrogate. On the project, co-created by Ali Adler,The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star NeNe will play the heavily recurring role of Rocky.

I have to admit, I never expected NeNe to transition into acting, but more power to her!
