Kylie Jenner says she swears that she hasn't gone under the knife and hasn't had any work done. That's not to be confused with the Kardashian sisters, who haven't done any work.
Apparently GWYNETH PALTROW'S New York Food Bank Challenge to eat for a whole week on just $29 is off the table. That's how much people on food stamps have to live on weekly, but Paltrow attended a promotional dinner for Jon Favreau's upcoming film Chef.

ERIC CHURCH is introducing his own Highway to Home furniture line. Church's father is a longtime executive in the furniture business and Eric's first job was in a furniture plant.

Say what you will about those wacky celebrity baby names, because it could be worse! A recent Reddit thread asked people what were the craziest names they'd heard and they got over 18,000 submissions. Among them was an alternative spelling to 'Erica' that came out Airwrecka. There was another person that named their daughter Orgasm. One would have to assume that some of the submissions were fakes, perhaps like the one who claimed there was a girl in their school named Gennah Tyles. Other odd names included I'munique, Britney Shakira Beyonce, Obamaniqua, Boy Boy, Abstinence and Like.

Scott later said that someone told him that if he saturated the bedbugs with alcohol it would kill them. After Scott did so, he sat in the car and lit a cigarette. No word on whether the bedbugs are dead, but the rental car is and Scott nearly was as he fled from the blazing vehicle and was later treated for first- and second-degree burns.
