Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - Jun 17, 2013

The hottest story of the weekend goes to KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST, who welcomed a baby girl morning last Saturday at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Sources say the bootylicious brunette felt a "little off" so the rapper cancelled an appearance at his own record release party and a few hours later their daughter was born. The KARDASHIAN clan isn't denying the story --mama KRIS JENNER sent out a "Happy Father's Day" "tweet" to KW, while Kim's sister, KHLOE, revealed she can't "even begin to describe the miracle that is now a part of our family," "Mommy/baby are healthy & resting" and they "appreciate all of the love." Rumor has it the little darling was born a whopping five-weeks early and wasn't scheduled to arrive until July 12th. (Lee)
Quotable: "The Kardashian baby had to arrive early because she was afraid if she waited until her due date, KATE MIDDLETON's baby would steal all the media attention." (Stevens & Grdnic's "Daily Comedy Exclusive")

Hell's Angels may just be angels now. Yesterday morning, POPE FRANCIS blessed hundreds of Harley-Davidsons and their leather-clad riders before a papal Mass at the Vatican.
The motorcycle enthusiasts were in Rome to celebrate Harley's 110th anniversary. A reported half-million Harley riders were in town for the four-day celebration. Pope Francis --no stranger to suiting up and going for a ride with the wind blowing through his hair-- stood in an open-top jeep, driving through the throng of some 1,400 leather-vest wearing biker dudes.
Pope Francis, incidentally, also stands in solidarity with the bikers; he is now a proud Harley owner. The company just donated two white classic Harleys for the Vatican police to use. (Maiman)
MILEY CYRUS is reportedly leading a "celebrity boycott" against Abercrombie & Fitch. The Daily Mail says Miley has "vowed to burn her collection" of Abercrombie & Fitch clothes. She joins KIRSTIE ALLEY and ELLEN DeGENERES as the latest celebrity to pile on the retailer because they won't sell clothes above a size 10. Abercrombie has been under fire since last month, when a viral video brought new attention to Abercrombie's longstanding sizing policies.
Most of the backlash is focused on a 2006 interview the company's C-E-O gave to Salon.com. He said: "'In every school, there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids. Candidly, we go after the cool kids. 'We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don't belong (in our clothes), and they can't belong.'

If you plan on showing the world your boxer shorts as you walk around with your pants low in Wildwood, New Jersey, you will probably get a fine. But, no worries, a rapper will pay it for you. The New York Daily News says THE GAME thinks the Wildwood city council's ban on exposed undies, which was passed on Wednesday, is racist. So, he's offered to pay the fines for the first five people who get caught. It's $25-dollars for the first offense, with repeat offenders having to cough up $200-dollars. The Game said no one can tell anyone how to wear their clothes, and that this ban takes us back to the days of slavery. (Marino)
