  • Khloé Kardashian Reveals She and Her Sisters Still Call Caitlyn Jenner 'Bruce'

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    Change is hard — just ask the Kardashian clan. According to Khloé, she and her sisters haven't completely adjusted to the arrival of Caitlyn Jenner.

    "We, my sisters and I, we will call Caitlyn 'Bruce' and we've been told that's completely fine," the 31-year-old reality star revealed Thursday during an interview on Australia's The Project. She added that they "don't like to say that Bruce is gone, per se."

    It it seems that it's especially hard to leave Bruce behind while talking on the phone.

    "And she told us, we are allowed to call her any name we want to. Because on the phone, when she calls me, it's the same voice as Bruce," Khloé reasoned. "And if I'm not physically with her, it's hard to remember in the moment that I'm talking to Caitlyn, if that makes sense."

    But just because it may be tough doesn't mean Khloé isn't completely behind her stepfather's decision to take his journey public.

  • Billy Corgan Does Not Want to Talk About Disneyland

    Let's get one thing straight: Just because Billy Corgan visited the Happiest Place on Earth does not mean that emotion rubbed off on him. The Smashing Pumpkins frontman caused a stir earlier this month when he was photographed taking a ride on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland — and looking less than enthused.

  • Angelina Jolie Reveals Son Maddox Has a New After-School Job

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 4 days ago

    Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's son Maddox turns 14 next week, but he's already got a job.

    In a new interview, the mother of six says that the teen, whom she adopted from an orphanage in Cambodia in 2002 when he was 7 months old, will be "involved behind the scenes" of her latest film project, which happens to be rooted in his homeland.

    As reported, Jolie is directing an adaptation for Netflix of Loung Ung's memoir, First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers , which tells the story of the author's childhood during the 1970s Cambodian Genocide under the rule of the communist Khmer Rouge regime. Filming is beginning in November, and it's now being revealed that her eldest child will be his mother's right-hand man on the set of the film.

    "Maddox will be on set every day after school and involved behind the scenes," Jolie told the Associated Press on Tuesday.

  • A Few Things We Hope Lindsay Lohan Clears Up in Her Memoir

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 6 days ago

    The star has sparked rumors that she would be penning a memoir when she posted a "teaser" video on Instagram. To be fair, the video raises more questions than it answers, though Lohan does seem to appear in it (briefly).

    "#ciaofornow @lavishalice happy birthday," she wrote, adding, "teaser for my book FYI #karma."

    Back in 2013, Lohan was reportedly in talks to write a tell-all, but it's unclear whatever happened to that or if this book is the same project. For what it's worth, Lavish Alice is a fashion brand that she has collaborated with in the past.

    But while details are certainly murky, we can't help but fantasize about all of the stories about her wild days that she might clear up if she is, in fact, finally writing a bona fide book about her life. Should we be so lucky, here are the top questions we'd like her to answer in her tome.

    If the pants she was wearing when cocaine was found in her pocket weren't hers, whose were they?

    What really happened during that crazy limo ride with her mother?

    Did she really think she could get away with stealing that fur coat?

  • Now That Bobbi Kristina Has Died, What Happens Next?

    Bobbi Kristina has died, but the story is far from over. As friends and family cope with the loss of Whitney Houston's only daughter, steps are being taken to investigate the circumstances that led to her death. While it may be a while until questions start to get answered, the authorities are wasting no time in gearing up the investigation.

    That said, the Fulton County Medical Examiner admits that the nearly six months she spent in limbo between when she was first found and when she finally passed will "complicate reconstruction of the events surrounding her initial unresponsiveness" and that "Interpretation of autopsy findings and other information will also be challenging." Still, though, there is hope. "An autopsy could be helpful to address questions which may arise about the cause of her unresponsiveness and eventual death," the statement added.

  • Bobbi Kristina Brown Dies at 22

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 7 days ago

    Nearly six months after being found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home — and a month after being moved to hospice — Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, has died at the age of 22.

    The Associated Press reported her death on Sunday night. "Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July 26, 2015, surrounded by her family," a rep for the Houston family said. "She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."

    Upon arrival at the hospital, she continued breathing with the aid of a ventilator as friends and relatives flocked by her side. Within days, she had very little brain activityand was moved to Emory University Hospital, which is considered a top facility for neurological problems.

     

     

     

  • Pregnant Leighton Meester Has That Mommy-to-Be Glow

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 16 days ago

    Dang, girl! On Wednesday, Leighton Meester stepped out in Los Angeles to grab a bite with a girlfriend — and from the looks of her giant baby bump, the newly married star is going to become a mother any day now.

    Rocking a fitted white tank, striped pants, and Birkenstocks, Meester appeared calm and comfortable for her girls' outing. She completed her style with an oversized tan bag and sunglasses, and kept her hair up in a no-fuss bun. Though her ensemble was decidedly casual, she still looked pretty great thanks to that mama-to-be glow.

    The Gossip Girl alum has kept a rather low profile since news of her pregnancy broke back in May (though she never officially confirmed it). Still, the 29-year-old actress didn't appear to be bothered one bit by the photographers, and happily mugged for the camera as she rested her arm on her blossoming belly.

  • Cody Simpson Still Loves Gigi Hadid, Says Relationship With Selena Gomez Got 'Weird'

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 18 days ago

    Ahh, young love, oh what a grand and complicated thing — just ask Cody Simpson. The 19-year-old pop star, who has been linked to several famous ladies, including Gigi Hadid and (for one hot minute) Selena Gomez, recently shed some light on romantic past — but the details he gave only seem to raise more questions.

    As for his rumored romance with the "Good for You" singer, Simpson hardly seemed heartbroken. Buzz began that he and Selena might be an item roughly two weeks ago when she posted an Instagram pic of the pair eating ice cream with the caption, "These days are always the best days." In other words, it was hardly definitive proof that they were ever anything more than friends, and Cody seems content to leave that question unanswered.

    "I went through a phase where I was pretty good friends with Selena, and then it just got kind of weird, because I just try to be nice to everyone," he told Du Jour magazine of their relationship.

  • Caitlyn Jenner Tears Up at ESPY Awards: 'Trans People Deserve Your Respect'

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 18 days ago

    If there were medals for acceptance speeches, Caitlyn Jenner would have won the gold at the ESPY Awards tonight. In her first major public appearance since revealing herself to the world, the Olympian-turned reality star-turned transgender activist delivered an absolutely impeccable speech that included a little humor and a lot of heart.

    Even before she opened her mouth, it was obvious the audience was on her side. Kylie Jenner posted a pic that showed Caitlyn's children (as well as many of her stepchildren and members of her extended family) having quite a good time.

    "All black had to change to match," Kylie captioned the snap.

    It seems that perhaps the coordinated black ensembles were meant as a foil to Caitlyn's attire — an elegant Versace white gown. After a short movie recounted her athletic glory days as Bruce, Caitlyn received a standing ovation as she headed for the stage.

    And then, last, but not least, she addressed her mother, Esther.

  • Jennifer Lawrence Calls Her Tattoo a 'Watered-Down Rebellion'

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 19 days ago

    Jennifer Lawrence might be one of the most famous and sought-after actresses in the world, but that doesn't mean she didn't go through a rebellious phase just like the rest of us mere mortals. The X Men: Apocalypse star was recently spotted sporting some bona fide ink. It's small and nondescript — and it happens to be the chemical symbol for water.

    "I call this tattoo a watered-down rebellion because it's not like a real tattoo," she explained to HitFix of the red mark on her right hand.

    So, why get one at all? It turns out her Hunger Games co-star, Liam Hemsworth, is to blame.

    "I was with Liam's family and everybody was getting tattoos and I was like, 'Well, I'm always going to need to be hydrated, so I guess I should just get H2O on my hand.'"

    She also opted for a color that's a bit more subtle than your standard black.

    "It's the color of a scar, so it's all natural," she mused. "So it's literally the most un-rebellious tattoo that anybody could ever get."
