Celebrity Gossip: Kim Kardashian, Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett and More!
KIM KARDASHIAN’S SENSE OF HUMOR ON DISPLAY AT CFDA AWARDS: Kim Kardashian accepted the Influencer Award Monday at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards Monday, thanking everyone and then admitting that she is “surprised” to be getting a fashion award when she’s “naked most of the time.” She also reminded audience members that aiming high never hurt anyone. “It was maybe seven years ago when I had a publicist, and she asked, what were my goals, what were my dreams, and I said I just wanted to be on the cover of a fashion magazine,” she said, per USA Today. “And she said, let’s (make) some realistic goals because that will never happen. And so, of course I sent her my Vogue cover when it came out. An autographed copy. So it’s really a trip to me that now I’m here getting an award for fashion when it’s something I always loved. Thank you so much for this, it means a lot.” (USA Today — Click our Twitter or Facebook buttons to share this link!)

KYLE RICHARDS OPENS UP ABOUT DAD ABANDONING MOM: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is developing a TV series called American Woman about her late mother Kathleen Richards. She appeared on Megyn Kelly Today to promote the show Tuesday, and revealed a key plot point that depicted how her mother found out that her husband was cheating on her. “At that time, my mom was all of a sudden suddenly single,” she said. “She didn’t know about money or what they had — she didn’t even have a checkbook. So when I was actually 10 years old, my mom got me a checkbook and I was allowed to have my ‘unemployment checks’ from my TV shows.” She added that her “very strong” mother has long been her icon. “I did not have a conventional life growing up at all,” she continued. “In addition to being a child actor, it was just a very different upbringing. When my mom passed away, I was reflecting on her and I love to write, so I would write stories about her and growing up. I thought, ‘I really want to make this into a TV show one day.’ And here we are.” American Woman premieres Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on Paramount Network.

It did take a hit to my self-esteem for a second and then I kind of picked myself back up and said, ‘I’m not going to let this ruin my day!’ ” Reinhart, who is dating her Riverdale costar Cole Sprouse, took to Insta to nix the rumors on May 28th. “It’s unfortunate that one unflattering photo of my stomach circulating the internet causes hundreds of people to think that I’m pregnant,” she wrote on Instagram. “Nope.
