Defending True

Khloe Kardashian is on the defensive. The reality star took to Twitter to defend a recent comment she made. True’s mom commented in response to an internet troll who made a racist comment about her daughter’s skin color last week. Kardashian posted that they “do not see color” they see “emotion and action” and “love.” A follower commented that her “not seeing color” meant that she must be turning a blind eye to “blatant racism.” True’s mom felt she had given a polite response where she usually would have responded “f—ing aggressive.” She credits her new-found patience to her daughter, but also people shouldn’t “push [her].” She followed up the tweet by reminding followers that “we will not be defined by social media.”

Kim Kuestions Kanye

Kim recently told a friend that when she was pregnant with daughter North, she wasn’t sure she and Kanye’s relationship would go the distance.

Fast forward and the couple is married, with three kids—possibly a 4th on the horizon—and flirting with one another on social media. Clearly, they have worked out…so far.

Scott Wants One More

Kim Kardashian-West shared some juicy gossip with gal-pal Larsa Pippen on Sunday’s episode of KUWTK. Apparently, Scott Disick “wants to have another baby” with Kourtney Kardashian. “I think he just wants one more. And she wants one more” Mrs. West told Pippen. Pippen was totally on board with the idea, saying “Their kids are gorgeous” so they should have another one together. Kourtney and Scott are both seeing other people, but Kim said that they “don’t even have to have sex” to make a baby. This could all be part of Kim’s plan to get the two back together, as she has said many times that she has always held “onto this hope of Kourtney and Scott”.

Royal Petition

A petition is going around asking the “House of Commons to urge the Government to commit no public money [toward] the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, and to publish a report of all costs to taxpayers.” If the taxpayers get their way, the Royal Family would have to personally finance the “extravagant and pricey wedding”; security alone costs £2 Million (about $2.6 Million). As of Friday, the petition had 7,000 signatures. The wedding is set for October 12. There has been no comment from Kensington Palace.

Lohan Livestreams

Lindsay Lohan livestreamed quite the video over the weekend. While in Moscow, Lohan came across a presumably homeless family and offered to get them a hotel room for the night. The parents didn’t accept the gesture, so Lohan moved on to the two children and tried to convince them to go with her. When that tactic failed, Lohan started yelling at the parents for allowing their children to be out in the cold when she is offering them a warm place to sleep. Having enough, the family got up to leave, but the actress wasn’t done. She followed them and started yelling that they are “trafficking the children”. Lohan also started yelling that the family is “ruining Arab culture” by not accepting her help, to which the mother replied with a punch that knocked Lohan to the ground. Lohan ended the video with her crying and telling viewers she was “in shock” as the family made their escape.

Roger Matthews Vows to Fight

This is not the end for Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Rodger Matthews, if Matthews has anything to say about it. Farley recently filed for divorce from her husband of three years and Matthews took to Instagram to confirm the news, saying it was not due to “cheating or any dumb s—t” and vowed to fight for their relationship. While Farley has yet to publicly address the split, she has asked for primary custody of their two children, Meilani and Greyson, as well as child support, health insurance and funds for health care expenses. Matthews said the two are in therapy so there is still hope. Fans are probably hoping for some sort of spin-off from their former reality show, Jenni & Roger: Domesticated, that follows the divorce…or reconciliation.

Sneaky Swift

Taylor Swift loves her privacy; especially when it comes to boyfriend Joe Alwyn. Swift is so private with their relationship that she wouldn’t even walk the red carpet for this movie premiere over the weekend. The singer was spotted sneaking into the premiere and even exiting through a back door, according to the Daily Mail. The couple was spotted later that evening, hand in hand, so they are very much still together and into one another.
