Get Fit Obsessed:

Karina Smirnoff was ready to help all of us make good on our New Year’s resolution to get healthy! The ‘Dancing with the Stars‘ pro hosted JC Penney’s New Year, New You event at JC Penney’s SoHo showroom. Guests got to take dance classes so they could learn new moves while burning up some calories. Karina was looking great in JCPenney’s exclusive Xersion and CityStreet Activewear lines. She said:

I’m excited to partner with JCPenney to showcase ways to feel great from the inside out. These clothes are comfortable, super cute and sexy, and fit the body in all the right places. It’s great that JCPenney has such a wide selection for every fitness level. I want a set in every color.”

So do I: I’m loving Karina’s workout gear! Another ‘Dancing with the Stars’ pro, Henry Byalikov, was also there to teach the participants some salsa moves. Celebrity nutritionist and chef Melissa Petitto was also onsite creating delicious and healthy juices and smoothies with JCPenney’s national brand juicers to quench peoples’ thirst.

Juicing has grown in popularity and I wanted to share some of my tips and favorite recipes today. JCPenney has trusted brands from Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer to the Magic Bullet Blender. These juicers and blenders fit the family’s healthy lifestyle and budget.”

Juicing is great. If you don’t do it, you should try it. Karina even got in on the fun and collaborated with Melissa to create one of the signature drinks, Karina’s Double D, a refreshing mixture of carrots, ginger, fennel, apple, carrots, and mint. Karina noted:

Listen to your body. When you put good nutrients in you’ll feel amazing overall.”

When asked about Season 18 of ‘DWTS,’ Karina was tight-lipped about details and mentioned that the announcements would still be a few weeks away.

I haven’t heard anything yet so I am just as anxious and excited as everyone else!” When asked who would be her ultimate dancing partner, dead or alive, she said, “Michael Jackson.” His talent and dancing was amazing and it would have been an honor and a treat to dance with him.”

THAT would have been interesting. Are you looking forward to the upcoming season of ‘Dancing with the Stars’?

Kanye Being Investigated For Assault

Kim & Kanye Dine Out At Mr Chow

Oh boy. Kanye West is being investigated by the Beverly Hills Police Department for assault. A source close to Kim Kardashian reportedly told People:

“Kim was walking into a furniture meeting for their new home,” the source tells PEOPLE. “Kanye was there ahead of her for the meeting. So Kim gets there and walks into the building with a million paparazzi trailing her.”

TMZ said a man tried to help Kim get into the building and yelled at the paparazzi:

“F**k these fa**ot-ass n****rs”

Kim reportedly chastised the man for using racial epithets, and the man then is said to have turned on her, saying:

“F**k you b**ch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid s**t.”

The source told People that then:

“At this point Kim was seriously afraid for her life. He was going nuts. Kanye came down to help her but then the guy ran into a chiropractic office so Kim and Kanye walked in after him.”

Now this is when the stories diverge. TMZ reports:

Sources say Kanye and Kim rushed into the waiting room of chiropractor Richard Hill and found the 18-year-old sitting there. Witnesses say Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed, “We have it all on tape.”
Sources say the massage therapist in the office separated the 2 men. Beverly Hills cops were called and the 18-year-old said he wanted to press charges.

Meanwhile, the source told People:

The man verbally confronted West with obscenities, and at one point Kanye hit him – “barely,” the source insists.

So now Kanye is being investigated for assault. Whether Kim was afraid or not, if they pursued the man to confront him, then I can’t see how they can claim self-defense, even if the man’s words were VILE. Something tells me Kanye’s going to be getting his checkbook out, unfortunately. And only the night before (the night of the Golden Globes), Kanye and Kim had a nice dinner out.


Kendall Photobombs Kim’s Selfie

kendall jenner photobombs kim kardashianThe criticism over Kim Kardashian’s alleged photoshopping of her sexy selfies hasn’t stopped Kim from taking more! Kendall Jenner got in on her big sister’s latest selfie, photobombing it. This pic is pretty funny. Kendall posted it to her own Instagram account.

barging in on Kim’s booty selfie

This picture wasn’t posted on Kim’s Instagram last time I checked. It’s probably because the flash obscures her face. Also, you can’t really see Kim’s booty with that lighting. No wonder she and Blac Chyna took their pics in a restroom: the lighting is brighter in there. I love that Kendall took the chance to tease her big sister.

Kim Doesn’t Need Photoshop: She Has Discipline

kim kardashian pictures (1)

Remember Kim Kardashian’s Instagram gym pics? She and BFF Blac Chyna showed off their tiny waists and toned backsides after a workout. Well, almost as soon as the pics went up, people started screaming “photo shop!” Radar Online even had photographers study the pics and show why it looked like they were photoshopped. Kim hit back on twitter when someone tweeted her support.

Preach! LOL thank you! It sucks when people make up surgery or photoshop lies when I am so disciplined & work so hard! Just trying to motivate others & show anyone struggling with weight they can totally achieve whatever they want if they are dedicated!

Kim certainly looks slim yet curvy in these pics, doesn’t she? She hit the shops yesterday afternoon. I have to say, though, what the photographers pointed out on Radar was enlightening. Then again, does ANYONE post pics that aren’t touched up anymore? There are so many apps out there to do it. Do you touch up your selfies?


She’s “Heartbroken” & “Devastated” Over Cheating Scandal

Disney On Ice Rockin' Ever After

Have you been following the cheating scandal surrounding Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott? Emily Goodhard told Us Weekly she and Dean hooked up in Canada after Dean told her he loved Tori but they had a “sexless marriage” in early December 2013. With four kids (and the  youngest, Finn, not even two!), the “sexless” part must’ve been a pretty recent change. Dean hasn’t denied Emily’s story, and Tori hasn’t spoken out about it at all. A friend of Tori’s, however, told People that she is “devastated.”

“She’s much more heartbroken than anyone realized. She’s flipping out and is completely devastated. Remember early last year when the tabloids wrote something [about marriage troubles] and she blasted them on her website? Now she’s not even doing that.”

The friend also said Tori hasn’t made any final decisions about what to do with her marriage.

“I don’t think she even knows what she’s going to do right now. But no matter what, she’s staying strong for her kids. She’s all about her family. She worships those kids.I don’t know if she’s strong enough to leave him right now with everything she’s going through and four young kids. She could stay with him or not. God only knows.”

It’s hard not to remember that Tori and Dean first got together by cheating on their respective spouses at the time. It’s just like the saying goes: if he’ll cheat with you, he’ll cheat on you. Tori has always seemed to understand that, too. She’s been open about the fact that she does worry about Dean’s ability to be faithful.  Yet I can’t help but feel badly for Tori. As reality TV personalities, there’s probably a lot of pressure to let this all play out in front of the cameras, and if they split, what kind of show would Tori have, since it’s just her and four young kids? It’s kind of like when the Gosselins separated: the show really suffered from not having Jon and Kate’s interaction.

‘The Situation’ Is Returning To Reality TV!

Get The Screen Obsessed TV Buzz:

We haven’t seen much of Mike “The Situation” since ‘Jersey Shore‘ ended its run on MTV. I admit, I was surprised at how fast he rose (we used to see him everywhere flaunting those abs) and fell. He reportedly spent some time in rehab, so that may have been part of the reason for his lower profile. At one point, Snooki and “The Situation” were two of the most popular cast members for ‘Jersey Shore’! Now Mike “The Situation” is back. He sat down with Bethenny Frankel on ‘Bethenny‘ to talk about his plans to return to reality TV (with a family show!). “The Situation” even responded to Snooki’s admission that she doesn’t like him and opened up about his addiction. You can watch Mike “The Situation” on ‘Bethenny’ on Monday, January 13. Check your local listings!

Throwback Thursday On Instagram

Kim Kardashian had some fun with her Throwback Thursday posting on Instagram. Do you recognize the two kids in this picture? Here’s what Kim wrote.

#ThrowbackThursday @nicolerichie and I being oh so cool at 13 years old

OMG! I actually recognized Nicole Richie, but I’m not sure I would’ve recognized Kim. Regardless, this picture is TOO cute. I wonder if Kim and Nicole see each other much anymore? We don’t ever see them out together, but Nicole keeps a pretty low profile. Perhaps they get together and catch up behind closed doors. Something tells me Paris Hilton isn’t likely to be invited, unfortunately.
