Us Weekly has become the Kardashian Weekly, and they’re living up to that with their latest cover issue. The majority of the issue is dedicated to Kim Kardashian‘s post-baby body, showcasing exclusive photos of Kim frolicking on the beach in her bikini. Apparently, Kim is ‘slamming the fat bullies and getting her revenge‘ by showing everybody how fabulous her new body is – except anyone with two eyes can see how heavily photoshopped these photos are. Experts have already weighed in on the pictures, and everyone agrees that Kim’s body has been thinned and airbrushed, almost beyond recognition. I mean, it’s extremely obvious! First of all, we’ve seen Kim in clothes as recent as last week – her thighs are not that thin, her stomach is not that flat, her arms are not that toned, and her skin is not that flawless – although that one, I suppose you can argue that makeup did the trick.
Paul Walker’s tragic and unexpected death continues to dominate the airwaves, including several tabloid covers. This week’s cover issue of US Weekly focuses on Paul Walker and his legacy, as well as his heartbreaking final interview.
From all accounts, Paul was one of the nicest and most hard working people in Hollywood, and he was always a family man at heart. He has a fifteen-year-old daughter, Meadow Walker, who he was just starting to bond with. In that final interview, Paul reportedly opened up about his daughter and ‘making peace with his mistakes’.
It’s almost sickening, the level of focus and attention the press pays to celebrities’ weight loss. Miranda Lambert lost a ton of weight very quickly, and that’s become headline news. Should we be promoting this kind of unhealthy weight loss to young women? Or should we be criticizing it instead?
US Weekly’s latest cover features the story, and makes it sound like glowing praise that Miranda’s managed to lose so much weight so quickly. Apparently, it’s a good thing that Miranda lost 25 pounds in three months, even though it’s probably not very sustainable. What’s worse is that they pretend as though Miranda didn’t have to work very hard to get her new body, and that anybody can do the same if they can put their minds to it. Uh, not they can’t. For one, Miranda’s a celebrity and she can devote all her time and energy to losing weight, something normal people can’t – especially with jobs and families. Secondly, she has the access to top-notch trainers and healthy food that others may not have access to or can’t afford. Lastly, the report claims that Miranda’s weight loss can be put down to some ‘portion control’ and ‘simple exercises’. I’m sorry, but there is NO WAY that Miranda lost this much weight by only doing minor portion control and simple exercises. To send across this message is extremely irresponsible and a blatant lie.
Is it just me, or is US Weekly going downmarket lately? They keep covering D-list reality stars, and giving us ‘exclusives’ on them – uh, we don’t care. We want the US Weekly of 2012 back, breaking stories like the Robsten Trampire cheating scandal. No more Kardashians and Hills people, please.
Our pleas for now have gone unheard, since the latest cover issue is focused on the stars of The Hills, Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag, and Kristin Cavallari, three years after the show’s ended. We know where Heidi’s at – broke, desperate for any ounce of attention, and attempting to reverse her drastic plastic surgery. Kristin has gotten married to a respectable and successful football player, and she has a kid on
Since US Weekly’s cover reveals that Khloe Kardashan is taking Lamar Odom back, it must be true. US doesn’t bullshit as much as the other tabloids, and since they’re best friends with the Kardashians, this is information that Khloe clearly wanted out there. According to the report, Khloe has ignored her family’s advice and decided to give the ‘newly sober‘ Lamar another chance, despite her personal misgivings.
Is she making a stupid decision? Probably. Lamar may be ‘newly sober’, but he hasn’t even gone to rehab. It’s hard enough for newly rehabilitated drug addicts not to relapse, much less drug addicts that never went to rehab and are constantly around drugs for their profession. He’ll end up relapsing within a few months, and she’ll be right back to where she started.
Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner have officially separated, something that’s been rumored for a long time but only confirmed earlier this week. Bruce and Kris both released a joint statement when announcing the separation, and they both stated that they were happier living this way and that the separation wouldn’t affect their family. Obviously, their family members already knew that Bruce and Kris were separated, and the public clearly guessed it. However, even though the tabloids and several sources say otherwise, Bruce and Kris are apparently on amicable speaking terms and are trying their best to make this transition smooth for everyone involved.
Once again, the tabloids are right. Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner were rumored to have separated several months ago, but ‘sources’ close to the family pretended everything was fine. Alas, we’re finally getting confirmation from Us Weekly that Bruce and Kris have actually been separated since June.
According to the latest cover issue of US Weekly, Kate Middleton and Prince William are all set to move into their new home and try for Baby #2. Their new apartment at Kensington Palace has been renovated and is ready for move-in. The apartment reportedly has two nurseries, a $50,000 rug, and a panic room – a bit much? Well, they are the royals. The fact that they’re living a relatively simple and uncomplicated lfestyle is achievement enough – they want to be ‘normal’, but not to the extent that they can’t take advantage of their status.
