Kim Kardashian Really Didn't Have That Many Rules for Her Surrogate

Before KIM KARDASHIAN's daughter Chicago was born, there were rumors about all the rules she and KANYE WEST had imposed on the surrogate. But it sounds like she really wasn't that much of a tyrant. She told " Elle" magazine that all she wanted was for the baby to be born in L.A., where all her other kids were, and for the surrogate to use her doctor. Also, she had to eat organic, which wasn't a problem, because she already did. Kim said, quote, "I straight-up told her, 'Look, I ate doughnuts every single day. If you want doughnuts and ice cream, go for it. Do whatever you feel.' I'm not going to be picky like that. That's just ridiculous." Kim HATED being pregnant, but she still wishes she could have had her third child the natural way. She had a medical condition that complicated her first two pregnancies, and she didn't want to take the risk again. More details HERE


Shia LaBeouf's Name Means "Thank God for the Beef"?

If you have time, I suggest reading the new "Esquire" piece on SHIA LABEOUF. It's fascinating, and it really helps you understand why he has so many issues. But one of the most important things you'll learn is that Shia was conceived in a sleeping bag in the back of a van, and his name, roughly translated, means "Thank God for the beef." "Shia" is Hebrew, and it means "Gift of God", or "Praise God", or something along those lines. That's from his mom's side. But LaBeouf basically means BEEF in French. His dad is Cajun. Another interesting fact about Shia: He's sober. At least for now.. More details HERE

Netflix Is Introducing a Way to Motivate Your Kids to Watch More TV

Netflix knows that one of the biggest challenges facing parents these days is that it's really hard to convince kids to watch TV. (???) Fortunately, they've just come up with a genius way to incentivize children, who otherwise WOULDN'T have their heads buried in a screen. They recently started testing a new "patches" feature, which gives kids digital badges for watching Netflix. They can rack up accomplishments like watching every episode of 'Fuller House', or binging "Skylanders Academy". It basically turns watching Netflix constantly into a game . . . with little red locks shown on collectable achievements until they're "unlocked." Of course, it's a little sinister . . . and plenty of parents aren't going to be cool with it. For what it's worth, Netflix says they're just trying it out, and it might not become permanent.

Is HBO Saying Basically Every "Game of Thrones" Character Will Die?

When "Game of Thrones" returns for its final season next year, most of the characters aren't expected to survive. And that's not a spoiler, because the show has ALWAYS been a bloodbath. By one count, there have been 174,373 deaths. An HBO exec recently said, quote, "It was a really powerful moment [when production started]. None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths." Technically, it's unclear whether she's referring to their characters' deaths, or the actors' general shock. More details HERE

Lil Wayne Threatens to Shoot His Audience

LIL WAYNE had an interesting solution when someone threw a water bottle onstage during a show in Australia. He stopped the music and said, quote, "Ok, so let me let you know, where I'm from . . . I think you all know that's the States . . . "We don't throw [stuff] on stage because all my [N-words] got pistols and they don't know where to shoot at. So, if you throw something else, I'm going be more safe and I'm going to be the bigger person and just leave, because I don't want to kill everybody." More details HERE

A big celebrity break up

ZAYN MALIK and GIGI HADID have broken up after more than two years together. They both issues statements “Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and friend,” Malik wrote in his statement. “She has such an incredible soul. I’m grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time; we wish this news could have come from us first. We love you all. xZ”

Added Hadid, “Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience over a few years … not only in the relationship, but in life in general. I’m forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared. I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have immense respect and love for. As for the future, whatever’s meant to be will be. xG” More details HERE
