Sucks to be you:
CAITLYN JENNER may have to find a whole, new clique of friends now that she's a female. TMZ.com reports BRUCE JENNER joined the Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California 15 years ago and golfs at the swanky joint almost every day. Unfortunately, the place is very old-school, doesn't allow women in the dining room or bar and sources say they plan to enforce the extremely strict policy.
Membership ain't for the average American --it runs a cool $225-thousand dollars. (Lee)
KIM KARDASHIAN accidentally set fire to her custom-made gown at the CFDA Awards Monday night, and PHARRELL WILLIAMS and his wife had to rescue her. People magazine says Kim --who is pregnant with baby number two-- made her baby bump debut wearing a custom-made, sheer Prouenza Schouler gown adorned with feather puffs at the shoulders at the fashion awards.Kim's feathrs brushed past a candle flame, and the star said "Pharrell and Helen... saved my life" after they "jumped" on Kim to get the fire out.

Fast food dep't:
KFC has filed suit against three companies in China for allegedly starting false rumors about the fast food chain.
KFC says three Chinese competitors misled consumers by posting photos and articles claiming, among other things, that KFC raises mutant chickens. The chickens in question supposedly each have eight legs and six wings. KFC is asking for a quarter-million dollars in damages and apologies from each company. (Still)
White Trash Bulletin:
A woman in England was so scared of the dentist, she used glue to perform her own dental work at home.
48-year-old ANGIE BARLOW's teeth reportedly started falling out from years of smoking and poor dental care. Instead of going to a dentist, she bought some super glue and stuck the teeth back in her mouth. When they fell out again, she glued them in again. This went on for about 10-years.
Eventually, the toxic chemicals in the glue ate through the teeth and part of her gums. So, finally, she went to a professional. Dentists ended up removing most of Angie's teeth, inserting titanium pins, and giving her implants.
In the end, her cheap home dental remedies ended up costing her entire life-savings. (Still)
Grace notes from Vinny Marino:
ADELE will do her second James Bond theme. The UK's Daily Star says she'll follow up the award-winning "Skyfall" with the theme for "Spectre." LANA DEL REY, LORDE and SAM SMITH were all possibilities to record the tune, but Adele got the nod. DANIEL CRAIG is back as 007 with CHRISTOPH WALTZ as the film's big bad. It's due out on November 6th.
FYI: This makes Adele only the second singer to have done more than one Bond theme. The champ is SHIRLEY BASSEY with three: "Goldfinger," "Diamonds Are Forever" and "Moonraker." (Marino)
