Khloe and Piers Against Jameela Jamil

How did this celebrity feud begin? Well, it all started when Khloe Kardashian made a post promoting a meal replacement shake created by Flat Tummy Co., which is known to be controversial. Khloe had claimed in the post that because of her drinking the shakes she was promoting, she had accomplished a toned waist in two weeks. Jameela rebutted this post by saying, “If you’re too irresponsible to a) own up to the fact that you have a personal trainer, nutritionist, probable chef, and a surgeon to achieve your aesthetic rather than this laxative product. And b) tell them the side effects of this NON-FDA approved product, that most doctors are saying aren’t healthy (possible Flat Tummy Tea side effects are cramping, stomach pains, diarrhea and dehydration) then I guess I have to.” Jameela also expressed her sadness in the fact that the industry “bullied” Khloe into being obsessed with her figure and that Khloe was not living up to her smart potential. Many other people have commented their wishes that celebrities stop promoting such harmful products and their concerns for younger girls who could possibly be following Khloe by example.

Later on, Jamil then proceeded to criticize Piers Morgan. On the show Good Morning Britain, Piers decided to make a condescending comment towards Sam Smith’s gender fluidity by saying, “I’m now identifying as Sam Smith so I can get his royalties. It works both ways.” Jameela’s response was as follows: “LOL. Of course England’s biggest s*** stain has something mean to say about it. He thinks men who carry babies in a comfortable papoose where they can feel your body heat and pulse, aren’t ‘manly’. This clown spews constant toxic ideas of ‘masculinity.’” Piers responded, “Appalling that you assume I am identifying as male tonight,” to which Jamil replied, “You’re right, it is extraordinary I identify you as any kind of human being at all you giant pile of w***.” Piers retorted back with, “I’d rather be w*** than woke, luv,” and Jameela made the final reply, saying, “Mission accomplished, hun.”


A-Rod Cheating Scandal Reemerges

Ever since Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have announced their engagement, the couple have been bombarded with cheating rumors. The first claim came from Jose Canseco, a former MLB player, who said that A-Rod slept with Jessica Canseco, his ex-wife, but his ex-wife shut down the rumors and clarified that she had not seen A-Rod in about five years. Just this week, Zoe Gregory, a Playboy model, stated that A-Rod was being unfaithful to his wife and pestering her. Despite all this possible drama, everywhere the couple has been spotted they have seemed to be happy with each other with no signs of the claims having an affect on them.


Khloe Under Fire (Again)

One of Khloe Kardashian’s fans posted, “So I realized I have to work 20 hours in order to afford @khloekardashian jeans…and I’m in love with them..catch me picking up extra shifts,” and Khloe’s response gained much backlash from other users. Khloe responded, “Awwwwww this is so cute!!!! I’m so happy you enjoy them.” In her other fans’ opinions, Khloe missed the point that her jeans are too expensive for working people and what she commented came off as patronizing. Some even suggested that Khloe should give the commenter a free pair of her jeans. Unfortunately, Khloe’s jeans are priced at $99 to $189 and she has not responded at all to this situation.
