Is Kim Kardashian actively trying to corrupt young Iranian women?  Maybe.

Kim Kardashian has already arrived in Cannes. She’s been posting photos, and my guess is that she’ll be around for the big amfAR gala in Cannes on Thursday night. She’s also there to shill diamonds, judging from this exclusive interview she did with People Magazine – go here to read. She barely says anything about her family, but she makes sure to talk about the de Grisogono jewelry. So, basically, People published a little advertisement for de Grisogono and tried to pass it off as gossip. Which is just the kind of thing I would expect from an international corrupter of young people and women. Did you know that Iranian bureaucrats have a major hate-on for all things Kim K.? They think that she’s some sort of social-media Manchurian Candidate, only cat-faced and focused on getting people to look at her naked selfies.

Iranian officials are questioning Kim Kardashian West’s Instagram popularity. The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp – an organization tasked with protecting the country’s Islamic system and preventing foreign interference – has reportedly accused Kardashian West, 35, of working with Instagram as part of a complicated ploy to corrupt the Islamic republic’s lifestyle, targeting “young people and women” with provocative photos depicting a lifestyle at odds with Islam. According to a report from Iran Wire, a news website run by a group of Iranian journalists, the Organized Cyberspace Crimes Unit of the Revolutionary Guards targeted Kardashian West during an Iranian news program Sunday night.

“Ms. Kim Kardashian is a popular fashion model so Instagram’s CEO tells her, ‘Make this native,’ ” a spokesman for the unit, Mostafa Alizadeh, reportedly said. “There is no doubt that financial support is involved as well. We are taking this very seriously.”

While talking to PEOPLE in Cannes, Kardashian said the accusations were news to her, as well: “What? For who?” she said of the claims. “I just landed and came here [from the airport]. I have not heard that one. Thanks for the heads-up.”

According to the report, Alizadeh claimed the aim of Instagram’s CEO Kevin Systrom is to make fashion modeling native to Iran and that Kardashian West is implementing his scheme for him. (Kardashian’s paternal grandparents immigrated to the United States from Armenia, which shares a border with Iran.)

“They are targeting young people and women,” Alizadeh said, according to Iran Wire. “Foreigners are behind it because it is targeting families. These schemes originate from around the Persian Gulf and England. When you draw the operational graph, you will see that it is a foreign operation.”

The actions and statements are part of the OCCU’s long-running effort to combat “modeling and vulgarity” and illicit Instagram and Facebook usage, cracking down on “secret supporters and operators of Instagram” allegedly attempting to subvert the “Islamic Iranian lifestyle,” reports Iran Wire. Several women in Iran have reportedly been arrested, and Iran Wire reports Javad Babaee, supervisor of the Prosecutor’s Office for Media Crimes, also appeared during the Iranian news program and announced they have already warned 170 individuals, 29 of whom are being targeted for prosecution.

“Our aim is to teach them a lesson and make them wake up,” Babaee reportedly said.

At least some of the targeted Instagram accounts remain online, including the pages of Elnaz Golrokh and Hamid Fadaei, though their owners have left Iran.

It’s all fun and games until some poor woman gets arrested and thrown in an Iranian jail for posting a duck-lip selfie online. Personally, I love a good a conspiracy and I was sitting here, really thinking about the claim that Kim is some kind of half-government, half-corporate stooge/operative trying to convince disaffected Iranian youths to pursue lives of self-indulgent narcissism and superficiality. And when you really think about it, it honestly doesn’t sound that f—king crazy, right? The only problem with the theory of the scheme is that every time Kim posts a photo of how she’s traveled alone on a private jet to the South of France (see below), it makes me want to declare a class war.

Kyle Richards on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: It’s Either Kim or Me!

Kyle Richards on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: It’s Either Kim or Me!

Kim Richards made a return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Tuesday night.

In a surprise move that should not have come as a surprise to anyone, the troubled reality star stopped by the show’s reunion in order to … well… ramble incoherently for the most part.

She acted in denial of any kind of drinking problem and didn’t address her recent arrest or litany of personal/legal issues.

So she basically acted like Kim Richards.

But while Kim made a few appearances on the series that made her famous this season, she is still not a full-time cast member.

Might this change in the future?

It’s very possible, seeing as people watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online or on television just to see the drama that Kim brings along with her.

However, if Kim Richards does return to full-time cast member status in 2017, her sister will not be joining her. Allegedly.

 

Kim Richards Reunites

According to a Life & Style insider, “Kyle put her foot down” when it comes to Kim getting rehired.

She has supposedly threatened to quit the reality program is Kim is brought back.

“She’s concerned the fame and publicity will derail Kim all over again,” the tabloid writes.

That certainly does seem plausible.

Kim, who has been in and out of rehab and was arrested for shoplifting in 2015, “has finally managed to get sober and take control of her life, but she’s still very vulnerable,” the source adds.

Why would she therefore expose herself to the tension-filled universe of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Do you really need us to spell this out for you?

Okay, we will. Here we go:

MONEY.

Bravo, meanwhile, officially renewed The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this week.

Via press release, the network also picked up The Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Real Housewives of Orange County, The Real Housewives of New Jersey and The Real Housewives of Potomac for new seasons.

We’ll never rid ourselves of these women. Not ever.

Henry Cavill: ‘When I was 19, I was going out with a 32-year-old’

Last fall, we learned that Henry Cavill, 32, had started dating a university freshman named Tara King. Tara is 19 years old. According to the Daily Mail, they’re still together and he’s even taken her home to meet his family. She’s traveled with him several times, when her school schedule permits, and they really aren’t hiding their relationship at all. Henry has a new interview in Elle Magazine (the issue with Brie Larson as cover girl) and when he’s asked specifically about dating a 19-year-old, his answers are… interesting. I guess. Some highlights from the interview:

Whether he ever had celebrity crushes when he was a kid: “I didn’t really, no. I didn’t have posters up. I still don’t have any crushes on actresses or models. It’s always been one of those things with girlfriends. They say, “Who’s on your list?” What do you call it, the Get Out of Jail Free card? [he’s told it’s a “hall pass”] Every single girlfriend has asked. I say I don’t have a list and they go, “Okay, well I’ve got this person….” And I go, “Stop right there. I don’t need to know who you really want to have sex with. I’m probably going to work with that person.” I just explained this to my girlfriend. She said, “That’s a fair point.”

Whether he’s comfortable being naked on screen:
“Are you kidding me? I had to start telling the producers, “Stop making me take my clothes off.” One year they said, “For the publicity shot, we’re going to have you shirtless holding a horse.” I said, “Why the f–k am I shirtless? My character has changed. He’s a morose, depressed dude.” They’re like, “Yeah… but people love it.”

Whether he feels objectified: “I don’t consider it being objectified. If people like to see me with my shirt off, it’s enormously flattering. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to take my shirt off all the time.”

Whether he can tell the difference between girls who want him or the ones who want Superman: “One, you never know. Two, if you’re just looking for a shag, does it really matter? And three, are they really different things? I think I have some similar traits or ideology to the character.”

What he talks about with his 19-year-old girlfriend: “Everything. People say, “Age is just a number.” A lot of times it’s not just a number. It’s actually a real and true sign of someone’s maturity. But in this case, she’s fantastic.”

The reaction to their age difference: “It’s a natural reaction. But when I was 19, I was going out with a 32-year-old.”

What he learned from dating an older woman: “Things that I can’t mention in an article.”

When he feels intimidated by a woman: “If someone’s trying to intimidate me, male or female, I don’t respect them enough to be intimidated. But when I first met my girlfriend, I was super intimidated. I wanted to impress her. I was thinking, Don’t mess this up, man. You’ve gotta play your cards exactly right… Everyone doubts themselves. It’s just a matter of admitting it or not.”

Blac Chyna: ARRESTED For Public Intoxication, Booted Off Plane at the Airport!

Tyga’s baby mama and Rob Kardashian’s controversial girlfriend Blac Chyna was arrested at the airport earlier today in Austin, Texas.

After allegedly getting drunk and becoming absolutely belligerent on a flight, the notorious stripper and Kardashian foe got popped in ATX.

TMZ reports that she was in Austin-Bergstrom airport en route from LAX to London, and on her way to her connecting flight, she got loud.

Then louder, and louder, and more obnoxious.

It’s not clear why, but she stormed toward the gate and began screaming at an airline employee, calling her a “Nasty ass bitch.”

Police were alerted to her shenanigans, followed her onto the plane, arrested her on the spot and dragged her drunk ass off.

Witnesses say Blac was “heavily intoxicated” on the plane, “fighting” with a flight attendant and generally acting “like a drunken fool.”

According to a passenger, she was screaming at one point, “Y’all got no respect for me. I gotta tie my shoes. Let me tie my Yeezys.”

Somewhere, ‘Ye has to be smiling a little.

Chyna, who has been ALL OVER the news this week thanks to her latest romance, was crying as she was handcuffed and escorted out.

Interestingly, Blac was at LAX gushing about Rob and his sisters just a few hours prior. Free booze in first class gets you every time.

Also today, knowing the lightning rod was headed out of town, Kris Jenner went to Chyna’s house to smack some sense into her only son.

While Kardashian loves his new girl and swears this isn’t a “revenge romance” of sorts, Blac’s arrest is only going to boost Kris’ argument.

The 27-year-old was booked for public intoxication following her disorderly conduct on what was a brief but memorable Texas layover.

As of this post, Chyna was still detained in jail.

Amal Clooney’s red-suited press conference style: vampy or fine?

FFN_Alamuddin_Amal_FFUK_012516_51955083

As we discussed yesterday, Amal Clooney was part of the legal team that got the former president of the Maldives out of jail. Amal wore a nonsensical coat – with lobster, hand and cat buttons/brooches – when she and the team went to 10 Downing Street over the weekend. Then on Monday, Amal and the team held a press conference at Amal’s law firm in London. For the press conference, Amal wore this red suit. And people are still talking about it.

No one has the ID on this suit, which makes me wonder if this is something older that she’s had in her closet for years. I still think the suit is pretty good, minus the velvet trimming, which just makes it seem more like a Christmas-only suit rather than something appropriate for business meetings. I saw some criticism of the color, like Amal wanted to ensure that she stood out, that she was the diva dressed in blood red. I don’t know… I think red is her color and I think it’s fine for women to wear red to meetings, conferences, etc. Is it such a tragedy to stand out?

That being said, I do think Amal’s styling was too “vampy” for the occasion. She paired her red suit with big curls, epic Salvatore Ferragamo stilettos, a Dolce & Gabbana tote and an inky black manicure. The whole look ended up being very… attention-grabbing. Oh, and she’s still wearing her giant engagement ring. And she’s still touching her hair a lot.

‘Glee’ star Mark Salling was arrested & released on bail for possessing child porn

wenn23176139

The guy in these photos is Mark Salling, best known – nay, ONLY known – as Puck in Glee. Mark paid an ex girlfriend $2.7 million in March of this year over an incident in which he allegedly committed sexual battery. Yesterday he was arrested on charges of child pornography possession and has since been released on $20,000 bail, which was paid by his family. Here is TMZ’s original report:

“Glee” star Mark Salling has just been arrested for possessing child porn … TMZ has confirmed. We’re told the LAPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force obtained a warrant and served it Tuesday morning, as first reported by the TV show “Crime Watch Daily.”

We’re told cops searched Salling’s computer at his Sunland home and found hundreds of images. At the time of this post, Salling is being taken to the police station for booking.

Law enforcement sources say the images they captured from Salling’s computer were children … significantly younger than 15 and 16 year olds. Our sources say an ex-girlfriend of Salling’s tipped off cops and they investigated before the raid to make sure it wasn’t a revenge allegation.

Salling has had his share of legal problems. In 2013 he was sued by a woman who claimed he committed sexual battery on her by forcing sex without a condom. Salling denied the charge and the case settled.
