Just how fabulous is the life of Nicki Minaj? In short: Pretty fab! The rapper is the subject of this week’s episode of The Fabulous Life Of... and the show digs deep into her lavish lifestyle. For instance, did you know she drops upwards of $16,000 on a dress? And that’s just to walk to red carpet. Then there are the shoes, which cost nearly $3,500 a pair. What?! That’s more than last month’s rent! Don’t even get us started on the cars, the trips and her obsession with fried chicken.

By now, everyone knows Lena Headey for her two onscreen personas: Queen Gorgo of the 300 franchise and Cersei Lannister of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Both are tough female characters that has Headey swinging swords, lashing tongues, and tempting men but ultimately one is the badder bitch.
On one hand you have Cersei Lannister. Headey’s character on HBO’s Game of Thrones is the former queen of King’s Landing. She’s ruthless, ill-tempered, full of pride and lives on a diet of wine and bitter contempt for those less fortunate than her. Then there’s Gorgo from 300. The queen of Sparta, now a widow, is a fierce leader with little regard for the city-states in Greece. Her main focus is maintaining the spirit of her former king and husband, Xerxes.
Ahead of the premiere of 300: Rise of an Empire, we ask Headey to pick who is tougher, sexier and would win in a fight.
Ahead of the premiere of Lindsay Lohan‘s new docu-reality series, we wanted to take a closer look at her career (and personal) recovery. While most view the time around the release of I Know Who Killed Me as her big breakdown moment, troubles for the actress started shortly after the success of Mean Girls. Lohan was under a microscope. After collapsing during the making of Herbie: Fully Loaded and getting into a string of car accidents, her her star started to diminish. Suddenly everyone was wondering if she was worth the effort or even all the unwanted attention. Since then, Lohan has been struggling to bounce back and erase any memory of the past decade with a series of comeback attempts.
After getting engaged last October, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have finally set a wedding date. Kardashian will walk down the aisle on May 24, just weeks before Baby North’s first birthday. Of course, new details are already pouring in about the upcoming nuptials. Here’s what we know:
When you live the life of the rich and fabulous, money hardly means a thing. Just ask Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who we affectionately know as Kimye. The two are among entertainment’s most powerful couples. Their combined wealth lets them bounce around the world, spend thousands at dinner and drop millions on an engagement ring. In the premiere episode of the return of The Fabulous Life Of…, the show breaks down just how lavish life with Yeezus is.
The battle between Gwyneth Paltrow and Vanity Fair continues to heat up. While The Gossip Table reported that the actress skipped the magazine’s annual post-Oscars bash, she wasn’t the only to opt out of the event. Paltrow’s publicist pulled his long-reaching strings and convinced Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock to pass on the event. That’s right, GOOP’s got power.
Every year, there are always one or two Oscars snubs (and upsets) that really hurt. In years past, it was Argo‘s Ben Affleck not getting nominated for Best Director, Sidney Poitier for In the Heat of the Night, or Jimmy Stewart’s emotional turn in Vertigo. This year, it was Oprah Winfrey‘s riveting performance in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. Say what you will about the film, but there was no discounting Winfrey’s turn as Gloria Gaines. She carried the film but, sadly, could not do enough to earn the movie a single nomination at this year’s Academy Awards.
But that’s where we come in. With Oprah out for The Butler, we decided to recast her in several of this year’s Oscar-nominated films. Damn the Academy! If they don’t want to recognize her for that role, then we’ll put in everything and see if they can get away with it. Because let’s face it: Every movie is made better with Oprah in it.
Each year, the awards season means certain stars get an opportunity to shine as they make the rounds on red carpets, picking up trophies and working their way toward that Oscar. Some celebs do it better than others. See last year when Jennifer Lawrence shined from the moment she “beat Meryl” at the Golden Globes to tripping on her way to picking up her Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway couldn’t muster the same spirit. Speech after speech, fans felt she was phoning it in. Luckily, the stars on this list, including Lupita Nyong’o, Matthew McConaughey and Emma Thompson, fall in line J-Law.
Opening this weekend is the volcano epic, Pompeii, about the doomed Italian city. The film gives the story the Hollywood treatment with three-dimensional fire balls, earthquakes and Kit Harington‘s abs (if only we could touch those, but we digress). The film joins a long history of disaster films, in particular, natural disaster films. These are the ones that are not man-made (The Towering Inferno), don’t involve any sort of alien invasion (Cloverfield, The Andromeda Strain) or involve Godzilla. Instead, Mother Nature rears her nasty side and reminds humans who actually runs the Earth.
On Friday, Netflix released the much-anticipated second season of House of Cards. The show, which was a surprise hit of last spring, won fans over thanks to the superb acting by Kevin Spacey (as Frank Underwood) and his onscreen wife Robin Wright (as Claire Underwood). While Frank is at the center of the show’s Shakespearean tale of power and greed, it’s Claire who steals the spotlight as a modern day Lady Macbeth. Her character, while maintaining a beautifully icy presence, knows how to destroy her enemies and slice to the core of someone’s emotions. “You don’t want to make an enemy out of me,” Claire threatens in season 2. No, no we do not.
