Kim Kardashian Is ‘Continuing to Support’ Husband Kanye West Amid Mental Health Struggles

Published

on

Through thick and thin. Kim Kardashian is standing by her husband Kanye West‘s side as he continues to struggle with his mental health.

“Kim is holding onto her marriage with Kanye and knows that he is bipolar and struggling with his mental health and wants to be there for him and help,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly. “She is continuing to support him and does her best to understand him and where he is coming from. She knows he is unconventional and has always known that.”

The “Lift Yourself” rapper, 43, went on a Twitter spree on Monday, September 14, when he claimed he would not release new music until his contracts with his publisher, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, and his record label, Universal Music Group, had ended.

“I’m not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal,” West wrote in the since-deleted tweet. “On God … in Jesus name … come and get me.”

The “Wash Us in the Blood” rapper also referred to himself as “the new Moses” and compared the music industry to “modern day slave ships” before urging his Twitter followers to “use the government money and buy land.”

West continued his rant on Wednesday, September 16, when he shared screenshots of his 10 contracts with Universal Music Group. “I need every lawyer in the world to look at these,” he wrote, adding, “ALL THE MUSICIANS WILL BE FREE.”

The Chicago native went one step further when he tweeted a video of himself peeing over one of his Grammy Awards in the toilet. “Trust me … I WON’T STOP,” he captioned the clip.

West had another public outburst in July after he claimed during his presidential rally that he and Kardashian, 39, considered aborting their first child. They are the parents of North, 7, Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 16 months.

Days later, he took to Twitter and alleged that the Skims founder tried to “bring a doctor to lock me up” and before tweeting that he had been trying to divorce Kardashian for two years. The Grammy winner later apologized for the tweets.

A source told Us in August that the KKW Beauty founder is “focused on healing her relationship with Kanye and has been busy taking care of their kids and him.”

Top secret workouts and Zoom-ready facials: Celeb prep for Emmys 2020

Published

Celebs, they’re just like us.

Even the most gorgeous, normally tanned and toned stars in the world have let themselves go during lockdown and fallen prey to the dreaded “COVID 15” — as in the number of pounds packed on.

“Whatever your addiction — ice cream, pasta — they say it’s tenfold now,” said superstar trainer Dion Jackson, known for shaping the physiques of Jennifer Lopez, Jim Carrey and others. “Lots of my clients have bought Pelotons because the gyms aren’t open. I’ve been working out with many of them outside recently, at Runyan Canyon, on the beach.”

There is, he added, one big upside: “Nobody knows who they are because all the celebs are wearing masks.”

It’s all part of Hollywood’s prep for the beginning of an especially weird awards season.

On Sunday, there will be no red carpet for the 2020 Emmys, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Instead of gathering with their peers in one starry room, nominees and presenters will be on call at home: One hundred and thirty cameras and small crews have been set up from New York to Los Angeles, London to Tel Aviv.

No matter where they are, it’s a little bit Wild West — there is no official dress code, and no one seems to be in agreement on what’s appropriate evening wear.

Tony Shalhoub’s stylist revealed to The Post that “it might be smoking jackets and ascots” this weekend for the “Mrs. Maisel” nominee (Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series).

“From what I’ve seen this week, style will be all over the map,” said Jill Chayet, whose LA-based PR company, BluPrint, handles jewelry, beauty and fashion brands. “Stylists were looking for ‘at-home gowns’ and ‘chic evening pajamas.’”

A rep for one of the world’s top red-carpet designers confided to The Post: “Our requests have been all across the board this week — for gowns, for sweats, for sweaters. But, definitely, there will be less tuxes and gowns than normal years.”

Some stars refuse to let the party-from-home circumstances ruin an opportunity to go all out, however.

Stylist Andrew Gelwicks has been doing fittings with client Catherine O’Hara — nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series — via Zoom and intends to go as glam as ever with the “Schitt’s Creek” star.
Nominee Zendaya (Lead Actress in a Drama Series, for “Euphoria”) told guest host Ben Platt on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last week that she’s dressing to the max, too.

“I still want to have that experience,” she said. “I’ll probably be with just my family over there, but I definitely want to pull a look and maybe just walk my living room carpet.”

And while you can surely count on nominee Billy Porter (Lead Actor in a Drama Series, “Pose”) — known for sporting hot-pink capes and car-length trains on the red carpet — to deliver a dose of escapism, other stars are taking a more subdued cue from these troubled times.

Stylist Chloe Hartstein, who did socially-distanced fittings with “Glow” actress Betty Gilpin (Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series) in person, at first wasn’t sure what to concentrate on: jewelry near the face for close-up shots? A dress with bedroom slippers since feet probably won’t show?

“Nobody knows who they are because all the celebs are wearing masks.”

“So we went for a little more pared down,” she said. “There are a lot of people who will be watching the show who are maybe unemployed or have been furloughed. Obviously, our job in the fashion industry and entertainment industry is to make people dream, but I think we can also create something like ‘we get what’s going on, we understand you.’”

Chayet agreed that social-conscious dressing is a trend.

“I’ve heard actors will be making very mindful choices as it pertains to black-owned businesses, brands and designers,” she explained. “And they’re highly aware many viewers are struggling financially right now. That might be why no one seems to want jewelry for their clients.”

And while some insiders predict more casual hair and makeup to prevail, just don’t expect stars to take it easy on their moneymakers: their faces.

Like many Americans, celebs are “horrified” by what the reality of seeing their faces on their laptop screens, said top Beverly Hills dermatologist Dr. Peter Kopelson. “Zoom has brought many people in who wouldn’t ordinarily come in for treatments, including celebs. What’s really in vogue now is cheekbones. People really like the look of high cheekbones, and shadowing the image of high cheekbones with filler projects well on Zoom. Also popular now are microdermabrasions and oxygen facials. They give a more even, smooth look to the skin when projected digitally.”

Dr. Harold Lancer, a Beverly Hills derm who counts celebrities including Beyoncé and Michelle Williams as clients, is also seeing big changes this awards season.

“Normally, I treat people head to toe: When people are stepping on the red carpet, they’re even concerned about their feet,” he told The Post. “But now, they’re asking about their neck and décolletage, the backs of their arms, hands and elbows — anything you can see on camera.”

(Trainer Jackson is taking a similar approach: “To speed up the process for something like an awards show, we might just focus on arms or back, the features that will be in the shot.”)

Dr. Lancer also revealed that COVID-19 has changed attitudes toward plastic surgery.

“They don’t want to risk any potential health issues during COVID, they don’t want anything with a healing component,” he said. So instead of going under the knife, patients are plumping for Accent Prime, a machine that combines ultrasound and radio frequency and tightens skin with zero downtime.

However stars end up looking, and whatever ends up happening on Sunday, it’s sure to be an improvement over last year’s no-host show — the lowest rated Emmys of all time.

Ian Stewart, one of the 2020 show’s executive producers, has admitted that some celebs are “apprehensive” about doing this at home, but that one participant did tell him: “I can bring my dog to the Emmys!”

And at least one star is thrilled by the lack of a red carpet. “I’m very relieved I won’t have to spend an evening in heels this year,” said “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star Alex Borstein, a nominee for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. “It’s fun to get dressed up — but four hours in heels is just four too many.”

’90 Day Fiance’ Star Larissa Dos Santos Lima Released After ICE Arrest: ‘I am Good to Go’

Published

By

90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? star Larissa Dos Santos Lima was released shortly after being arrested by the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Saturday, September 19.

“Hi everyone, I’m out. Thank you Eric, everyone. The agents and the whole people from ICE are very nice so I am good to go,” she told fans in a video message shared via Instagram.

 

The 33-year-old’s friend and costar Carmen Nys first shared the news via Instagram Story. “I am here with [Larissa’s boyfriend] Eric Nichols right now,” the 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? star said. “[Larissa] just got arrested by ICE when she was about to leave their house and move to Colorado. We have no clue why.”

“I want to let her family, fans and friends know that we are going there right now and, as soon as I have more info, I will keep you guys posted,” Carmen concluded. “Send prayers.”

 

It is unclear if the Brazilian beauty has her Green Card. However, she does hold an Employee Authorization Card.

The arrest comes just one day after the TLC starlet revealed she and Eric, 28, purchased a home in Colorado Springs and confirmed their move out of Las Vegas. “House closed today! We are moving and ready,” she wrote on social media on Friday, September 18.

Larissa has been living in Sin City since she moved from her home country of Brazil to be with ex-husband Colt Johnson in 2018. But Larissa’s first year in the United States and first year of marriage with Colt, 35, was rocked by three separate incidents which resulted in Larissa being arrested on domestic violence charges.

 

The charges in her first two arrests, in June 2018 and November 2018, were dismissed. In January 2019, Larissa was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic violence and Colt filed for divorce shortly after. Their divorce was finalized in April 2019.

In May of that year, Larissa agreed to a deal that would help her avoid jail time that included domestic violence classes and community service. That December, she appeared in court for the last time where she learned her charges were lessened to disorderly conduct.

“We are very happy with the result of Larissa’s case,” Larissa’s lawyer, Adam M. Vander Heyden said at the time. “With the way the negotiation was structured, this case will not impact Larissa’s ability to pursue her goal of becoming a United States citizen. It was a pleasure working with her to meet her goals.”

Since then, the OnlyFans content creator has been focusing on her relationship with Eric, whom she’s been dating since February 2019. In March, she celebrated the day she received her work permit and began her career as a social media influencer. Just five days before her latest arrest, the TLC star opened up about why she underwent a plastic surgery transformation earlier this year.

“The reason that I did it because as you know, I have a family in Brazil, I have a boyfriend who is 28 years old and I am exposed daily on social media,” she told Life & Style on September 15. “People have haters but the lovers, they ask you what procedures you use, what clothes that [you have] on. So I want to look good for myself and to make money to send to Brazil and to make a living here.”

Denise Richards: Did Charlie Sheen Force Her to Quit Real Housewives?

Published

By


Fans have been wondering if the real reason that Denise Richards left The Real Housewives had everything to do with her infamous ex.


Did Charlie Sheen pressure her to quit?


Throughout this season in particular, Denise Richards was adamant about not letting the show mess up things for her family.


That meant her marriage to her eccentric husband, Aaron Phypers. That meant no one saying the wrong things in front of her children.


And that also meant doing nothing to jeopardize her custody situation with her infamous ex-husband, Charlie Sheen.

Denise Richards Makes Accusations at the Season 10 Reunion


Denise had a central, pivotal role in this season — and plenty of conflict with Kyle even before her alleged affair with Brandi Glanville was revealed.


So why would she back out of another season, when she could likely have demanded that Bravo pay her whatever the hell she wanted?


Many fans have wondered if her ex-husband intervened, giving her an ultimatum: quit RHOBH or he would take her to family court for exposing their kids to that world.

But Page Six reports that, though Charlie Sheen supports Denise in her decision to hand over her diamond, it was not his doing.


Speaking through his publicist Jeffrey Ballard, he shared: “She does what she wants in these matters.


“And,” Charlie added, “I applaud her decision of ‘one and done.'”

Denise Richards Goes on the Offensive at the Reunion


Denise was actually on two seasons of the show.


It is unclear if Charlie is unaware of the details of his ex-wife’s career, despite them being public knowledge.


It may also be the case that he is aware that she did two seasons, but just wanted to say “one and done” because that’s how his brain works.

Denise Richards Dreads Seeing the Housewives Again


Reports say that Denise left because Bravo wasn’t willing to pay enough to meet Denise’s demands for increased salary.


On the other hand, Denise’s camp has claimed that Denise left without negotiating because she was so ticked off about her experience on the show.


That is kind of sad to consider, since it was Denise’s decision to make that season miserable for herself. Weird.

Denise Richards Checks Out of the Reunion


Even before Denise was embroiled in the Brandi drama, she seemed to not be having a great time.


We know that editing can be selective, but … from the strip club steak incident to Aaron claiming that he’s being followed by, uh, Big Pharma, Denise felt “off.”


A little feuding with Kyle Richards is normal and healthy for anyone. But Denise just didn’t seem to be vibing with the show.

Denise Richards: I am F--king Denise Richards Kyle!


If your heart isn’t in being on the show, you’re not going to have a good time.


Denise took offense at every mild jab from her castmates and seemed to build up intense and enduring resentments.


That is not a recipe for happiness. That kind of bitterness will only fester and lead to misery.

Denise Richards Smiles and Plans to Sue


Denise was also unwilling to play ball, apparenting making it rain cease-and-desist orders in her futile attempt to silence the stories about her.


The sad thing is that she could have really had a powerful storyline and a much better time on another season.


We’re just glad to hear that, whether it was finances or unhappiness, it was Denise’s call to quit the show.
