No, Tom Ford Never Called Melania Trump A ‘Glorified Escort’

A fake quote about first lady Melania Trump attributed to designer Tom Ford went viral on Tuesday. In a now-deleted tweet, user fras99 wrote that the fashion giant “refuses to dress Melania Trump: ‘I have no interest in dressing a glorified escort who steals speeches and has bad taste in men.’”  Fras99 did not immediately respond to a request for comment on why the user posted the tweet, but a spokeswoman for Ford quashed the sentiment. “This is an absolutely fabricated and completely fake quote attributed to Mr. Ford that has somehow gone viral. Mr. Ford did not make this statement; it is completely false,” said the spokeswoman in a statement to HuffPost. However, before Ford could weigh in, the tweet and his name went viral. Supporters of both the designer and FLOTUS tweeted up a storm. ...

Jim Carrey’s Grief Over New Zealand Turns To Anger Against Trump

Actor Jim Carrey, who often uses his visual artwork for advocacy, posted a new image on Twitter Sunday that expresses outrage at President Donald Trump in the wake of the mosque killings in Christchurch, New Zealand. Carrey’s new artwork shows Trump’s head, with an angry, soulless expression and a Nazi swastika on the forehead, as a blazing asteroid streaking toward Earth.  “Innocent people are now being slaughtered, families ruined and childrens’ lives destroyed. All in his name. If the Craven Republican Senate allows this vile miscreant to continue encouraging devisiveness, the ‘Trump Presidency’ will become an EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT,” Carrey wrote in the caption.   The accused New Zealand killer posted an 87-page manifesto just before the shootings at two mosques that killed at least 50...

This ‘Bake Off’ Meme Is Highly Relatable To Anyone Who Has Ever Failed

A fail on a reality show has turned into a win for the internet. James Acaster, a British comedian featured on “The Great Celebrity Bake Off” currently airing in the U.K., baked up some pretty sad flapjacks during a technical challenge earlier this week. Acaster, 34, hilariously explained to the judges how everything went south when he presented his “cherry bakewell” flapjack flop to the judges. “I started making it. Had a breakdown. Bon appétit!” he said (above). The comedian’s sharp-witted remarks have resonated with many on Twitter, and the disastrous moment when he presented his stew-like flapjacks has turned into a meme that perfectly summarizes how it feels to attempt something and completely botch it. Acaster himself has even gotten in on the joke in a very meta way. Now excuse us w...

‘The Bachelor’ Finale Watchers Ticked That Colton Underwood Won’t Spill On Bed Romp

“The Bachelor” concluded Tuesday with Colton Underwood persuading a hesitant Cassie Randolph to pursue a relationship with him, but tabling a rush to an engagement ― the expected endgame for the dating reality show. However, the two did end up in bed on their fantasy suite date, leaving some fans to wonder if Underwood had lost his much-hyped virginity. And they’re still wondering. “A gentleman never kisses and tells,” Underwood told the camera on the show. “But I do want you to know that I’m very happy and you can use your imagination.” Nah, that didn’t do it for some, who tweeted furiously about the anticlimactic non-reveal. Producer: Care to tell what happened? Colton: A gentleman never kisses and tells Narrator: Colton did not, in fact, get laid #TheBachelor — Chelsea Allyn (@chelseall...

Rob Lowe Deletes Tweet About ‘Honest Sons’ Amid College Admissions Scandal

Actor Rob Lowe chimed in on the college admissions fraud scandal involving fellow actors Lori Loughlin of “Full House” and Felicity Huffman of “Desperate Housewives.” But he apparently deleted his tweet, suggesting he didn’t think the message came off as he wanted.  “Very proud of my honest, hardworking sons,” Lowe wrote in a retweet of comments from his son, John, who noted how hard he worked to get into Stanford, even if he did have the means to afford tutoring and test prep programs. John Lowe wrote that he was disgusted that deserving students could lose out to cheating in attending a dream school. He shared a photo of his graduation day with his actor dad and brother Matthew, a Duke grad, writing: “Still proud of this achievement. Happy for everyone out there who earned their accompli...

Chrissy Teigen Loses And Finds Her New Hamster In Rodent Drama

She bought a new hamster for daughter Luna named Peanut Butter, cheekily adding that husband John Legend “is not thrilled, which makes me love her more.” Then the model shared her rodent adventures in an amusing string of tweets. She posted a clip of Peanut Butter chewing on a metal bar. She fretted over the seller’s advice on feeding and holding her. She noted that “it’s very confusing, being a hamster mom” and welcomed tips. She also asked people to “stop yelling at me” and reassured them that Peanut Butter had a swanky habitat. In perhaps the biggest development, she reported that Peanut Butter had escaped. Hours later, thankfully, she declared, “found her!” Never a dull moment in the Teigen-Legend household. Check out her hamster odyssey below: Luna and I bought a hamster today. Her na...

Chris Evans Ignites Celeb Civil War By Incorrectly Ranking His Favorite Chips

There’s an issue that’s divided Twitter almost as much as anything in politics this week, with Chris Evans causing people to choose sides in a way that hasn’t been seen since “Captain America: Civil War.” It started, innocently enough, with a video from comic Kevin Fredericks featuring a debate about the proper ranking of chips in a variety pack: The clip rapidly went viral, dividing tweeters along chip allegiance lines, leading to Evans replying with his own his own rankings:  The correct answer is:1. Cool ranch2. Cheetos3. Nacho cheese Doritos 4. Fritos5. BBQ lays6. Original lays I will not be taking questions. https://t.co/keSJ23IhRN — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) March 11, 2019 Other celebs and observers also found themselves choosing sides ― à la Captain America and Iron Man ― and the gr...

Khloe Kardashian Scrubs Jordyn Woods From Website, But Urges Fans To ‘Be Kind’

Khloe Kardashian is taking decisive action against Jordyn Woods, aka KarJenner enemy no. 1, amid the ongoing fallout from ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal.  The Cleveland Cavaliers player was reportedly caught cheating with Woods, Kylie Jenner’s childhood best friend, 10 months after the former couple welcomed a baby daughter and weathered their first ― that we know of, TBH ―  infidelity scandal.  The Good American designer has since let her cryptic Instagram Stories about pain and betrayal do the talking for her ― her close friends haven’t been as tight-lipped ― but now she’s breaking her silence.  “Hi loves, wanted you to know that I appreciate you!” Kardashian wrote on Twitter Tuesday. “I’ve been reading your kind words and they really are a blessing to me. I love you! T...

Jennifer Hudson’s Reaction to Lady Gaga’s Oscar Speech Is A Meme Dream

As Gaga implored viewers to pursue their dreams, Hudson punctuated the moment with a reaction that one Twitter user deemed the “meme of the night.” “I have worked for a long time, and it is not about winning but what it’s about is not giving up,” Gaga said after receiving the Oscar for best original song, “Shallow,” from the movie “A Star Is Born.” “If you have a dream, fight for it.” Meanwhile, the camera panned to an emotional Hudson nodding and mouthing “yes, yes.” Twitter gave a resounding yes to Hudson affirming Gaga’s inspirational words.

A Brunette Charlize Theron Looks Unrecognizable On The Oscars Red Carpet

Charlize Theron did not look like Charlize Theron on the Oscars red carpet Sunday night. The actress changed her usual blonde locks to a brunette bob and sported a slinky, backless blue dress. Theron was so unrecognizable, even people on Twitter began noticing.  “I know she’s like eight feet taller, but I thought Charlize Theron was Emilia Clarke with that dark bob,” Preeti Chhibber wrote. Another Twitter user, Vanessa Friedman, added that Theron looked like iconic socialite Wallis Simpson.  Even Getty Images got confused by the actress’ new look. The photo company mislabeled Theron as fellow actress Allison Janney in multiple photo descriptions.  Scroll below to see Theron’s look.   Jeff Kravitz via Getty Images Charlize Theron attends the 91st annual Academy Awards on Feb. 24, 2019, in H...

Linda Cardellini’s Outrageous, Pink Ruffled Oscars Look Is Dividing Twitter

Linda Cardellini wasn’t afraid to take a fashion risk on the Oscars red carpet. The “Green Book” actress showed up and showed out in an over-the-top pink, ruffled look, tied together with a light pink bow. She wore her hair up and perfectly matched her lipstick to the color of the dress. Luckily, Cardellini kept it simple with the accessories. She let the dress ― which looked like a cross between a couture bathrobe and a loofah ― do ALL the talking:  Frazer Harrison via Getty Images Linda Cardellini’s red carpet look got people talking. Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP Steve Granitz via Getty Images Reuters Twitter was divided over Cardellini’s look, as some hated it:  Linda Cardellini appears to have skinned Elmo for the sake of fashion. #Oscars2019 — M-D November (@thatsmdtoyou) Februa...
