Kim Kardashian said the flu is an 'amazing diet' and some people aren't too pleased... it's the Dredge

All the celeb dirt that’s fit to rake.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.


A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Kim Kardashian joked on Twitter last night that having the flu has the benefit of being an amazing diet and people have, predictably, lost their sh*t. 

In the run up to the Met Gala the, uh, illness seems to have come at a good time:

She probably shouldn’t check her mentions when she wakes up – because it gets pretty messy in there.

Plenty of people have been saying you shouldn’t really be making jokes about the flu being a good thing – it sets a bad example:

However, to contrast the backlash, another batch of her fans are saying this joke is standard enough and everyone has said it at some time or another:

And, as others noted, a version appeared in The Devil Wears Prada:


You can’t please everyone.

Kate Beckinsale has shared a gas/morto postcard she wrote to herself when she was 13.

It was “from” none other than Rob Lowe – and yes, he would like to marry her:

This seems legit.

Kate wrote:

EITHER I was a really tragic 13 year old with time on my hands OR Rob Lowe was all kinds of casual proposing marriage via a postcard of himself ,signing his last name AND drawing a dick instead of using a stamp .(found at my mum’s house)

We’ve all been there.

Fans of Liam Payne and Cheryl are convinced that they have spotted the first sighting of the pair’s baby.

The couple have been very private about their newborn boy, but Cheryl’s hair stylist Daya Ruci shared a photo on his Instagram story that could very well be the baba – according to fan accounts:

Wild speculation, of course, but they’ve “reached out to several people for a confirmation on whether or not this is Cheryl and Liam’s son.”

Great. (Mirror)
