Kim Kardashian: “I’m Not Done Losing Weight”



Kim Kardashian caught a lot of flack for posting a revealing Instagram photo, but the reality star is not done losing weight. During a recent interview with London’s Sunday Times Style supplement, Kardashian dresses partly to please her man.

 “You want your guy to think you’re really hot. I’ll put something on and he’ll [Kanye] say, ‘No, that doesn’t look good’, and I’ll trust him,'” she says of the rapper and designer, 36.

Kimmy K. also revealed that becoming a mommy has influenced her style. “I want to dress a little lighter colorwise. I think North looks cute in light colors, and then I want to wear light colors,” she reasons. “North doesn’t typically wear pink, though. She wears mauve or blush, not, like, typical baby pink.”

Kardashian has lost a lot of weight since giving birth to North, but she’s still on a weight-loss journey.

“I haven’t exercised a whole lot so far, just because I’ve been busy with the baby and I don’t want to leave her. I still have some [baby weight] to go,” she says, adding that the Atkins Diet has been a godsend. “Atkins worked for me and I don’t feel tempted to eat a bunch of junk food. It’s just about staying healthy – it will come off.”


Report: Octavia Spencer Sues ‘Sensa’ for Allegedly Backing Out on Deal



Just a few months ago, Octavia Spencer was singing the praises of Sensa, a weight-loss supplement, but now it seems things have gone left.

Spencer filed a lawsuit at L.A. Superior Court alleging “breach-of-contract and fraud,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In documents obtained by THR,  the Oscar winner signed a $1.25 million contract with the company, but it had stipulations:  Spencer refused to do tabloid ads, or to take part in “before and after” photos. She also insisted on being completely honest with her fans by tagging all sponsored tweets with the required #spon hashtag. Sensa was allegedly not happy with the hashtag part.

In the lawsuit filed, Spencer claims the company is blaming her “for the failed advertising campaign” and they are now trying to back out of paying her $700,000 they owe her.

Since coming on board,  Sensa has used Spencer’s face to promote their product through various avenues.

Spencer lost 20 pounds, in just five months, as a result of using  Sensa.

Iman Covers ‘The Edit’ Magazine



Net-A-Porter has released a new issue of its magazine, The Edit. And this time around, Supermodel Iman is on the cover.

Iman has always led a private life, but in this issue the model talks about how she keeps her personal business, just that…personal.

On her life after modeling:

“I’m not a model any more. I’m just me. I’m not working in front of a camera.”

On staying low-key and why her and husband David Bowie gravitated towards one another:

“The quiet part of it is intentional, because first of all I’m going to be 58 in July,” she says. “I wouldn’t lie about that, especially as a woman. So it has been a long career. Both David and I stay out of the celebrity thing. That’s why we gravitated towards each other, because we really feel that the personal should be separate from the professional. I’ve never had any members of the press in my home. Oprah [Winfrey] tried to photograph my closet. I said, ‘But it’s in the apartment and nobody steps in there.'”

On how her weight-gain gave her a fresh-face:

“My natural weight is 130 pounds and I’m 142 now. I was 160 when I was pregnant, so it’s a little too much for me. Still, I call it natural Botox. I look at myself in the mirror and I’ve never looked younger. It’s the weight I have put on,” she says. “In the west, we have become accustomed to needing to lose weight, right? But as we get older, for women especially, it makes us look a little haggard. So my consolation about this weight is that it’s given me a fresh face. The rest of it, I’m sitting on it.”

On living in NYC, but staying out of the spotlight:

“I still take my little girl to school,” Iman says. “David picks her up. It’s easier than any place we’ve ever lived. People are too cool to bother you.”



Ruben Studdard to Compete on Upcoming Season of ‘The Biggest Loser’


Ruben Studdard is about to participate in another reality show, but this time around he’s trying to lose.

Studdard, who won season 2 of American Idol in 2003, will compete on the NBC’s The Biggest Loser when it returns this fall.

“I was losing weight, but I was exhausted. It was making me sick,” the 35-year-old told PEOPLE in 2006 after attempting an intense workout regimen on about 1,200 calories a day with trainer Gunnar Peterson. “I’m a big man. There was no way to do those workouts on that amount of food, so everything was contradicting itself.”

In 2006, Studdard embarked on a weight-loss journey  that consisted of consuming 1,200 calories a day and working out with trainer Gunnar Peterson. Sadly, he quit that weight-loss plan after losing just 12 lbs. He later on decided to become a vegetarian, which led to him losing more than 70 of his 455 lbs. in 2006.

The singer maintained a healthy lifestyle  throughout his marriage to Surata Zuri McCants, but he began gaining weight againafter the couple divorced in 2012.

“I’ve never had an issue with my weight,” Studdard has said. “[But] my family has a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart-related issues – things I didn’t have to deal with yet because I’m young. But I don’t want to be worried at 40, and if I don’t fix things now, I will be.”

The Biggest Loser returns to NBC on Tuesdays this fall.

Kelly Osbourne Says Weight Loss is a Commitment

Jennifer Hudson Discusses Motherhood, Weight-Loss & A New Album

Jennifer Hudson Talks Motherhood, Slimming Down & Dealing With Disappointment

Jennifer Hudson sat down with Daily Mail (a UK-based publication) to dish on her new svelte body, how her weight has changed her career, motherhood and dealing with disappointment. JHud also did a high fashion shoot for the publication, which you can find below. Check out some of the highlights from her interview below.

JHud on if she agree that the odds are against plus-size women in the entertainment industry:

‘No, because I was doing OK before,’ Jennifer says. ‘But the truth is, so many more opportunities open up when you’re on the other side, as I am now. I’d no idea what I was missing out on. It’s like a whole other world. Suddenly every designer wants to dress you. It’s like, “You look amazing! Please, choose a dress. Have a bag. And what about shoes?” I mean, wow!’

JHud on how being thinner is exciting:
‘To be able to sing at this level is a blessing in itself, and I got publicity for what I was doing before I dieted. But never to this extent. Now, whenever I open a magazine, I seem to see myself there. And I get to dress up every day and have someone take photos of it all. For someone who loves fashion, it’s like living the dream. Of course there are those mornings when I think, “Please don’t look at me right now!” But you just have to pull yourself together, get out there and do your job. I mean, how lucky am I to be in this position?’
JHud on not looking perfect all the time:
‘When it’s mommy time at home, the supermodel me – black Barbie, as I call her – is definitely not in the house. I don’t want to be all glammed-up in big hair and full make-up. I need to relax, to breathe and to concentrate on my son.’
JHud on being an inspiration to others:
‘I’ve never heard the word “inspiration” as often as I have this past year. I get stopped in the street, in airports, everywhere, by people saying, “You’re my inspiration,” and I don’t begin to know how to respond. What did I do to deserve it and what do I say? Like with the weight loss… I’d no idea so many people were watching me or that they cared.’
 JHud on dealing with disappointment:
‘“Don’t block your blessings. Don’t let doubt stop you from getting where you want to be.” Those were the lessons that I took from American Idol,’ says Jennifer. ‘“OK, from now on I refuse to let anyone interrupt the vision I have for myself.” Sometimes I think we hurt ourselves by being too aware of the challenges. It can be better not to know. With Dreamgirls, I had absolutely no idea what I was letting myself in for until I was out there on the set.’JHud on her son David Otunga Jr. :

‘He’s very much his own person, a little performer who loves to sing and dance,’ she says. ‘He’s so charming, too. Yes, I’m biased, but I’ve never seen a child with such presence. He says “hi” or “bye bye” to everyone when he comes in or out of a room, and goes round blowing kisses to everyone. My phone is completely backed up from videoing everything he does, because he surprises me constantly.
‘When I found out I was pregnant and went for the scan, he was so very little. To have that memory fresh in my mind and yet to now have this boy with me, dancing and laughing…’

 Hudson on moving back to Chicago:
‘Now that we’ve moved back again, there aren’t enough hours in the day. I’m constantly running here, there and everywhere, seeing people. And I need that, you know? I love to feel connected. For me, home is all about comfort, so the guest bedroom has been turned into a pillow room. I especially love the colour purple, so it’s full of purple pillows that I’ve bought on my travels. I must have at least 400 at this point. I call the room Purple Heaven, because you can go in there and just collapse.’
‘My message to young people is to stay positive and not to doubt their dreams,’ she says. ‘There are things we long to do in life but think we’re not good enough or clever enough to make happen. Just go for it! Dreams do come true. If anyone’s proof of that, it’s me.’
