OMG! Kanye West leaves Kim K after just 58 days of marriage! Lol

While Kanye West is singing praises of his new wife, saying no woman on earth turns him on like she does, In Touch Weekly is reporting that he's left her after only 58 days of marriage..lol. Were they not just in Mexico with their daughter over the weekend on family vacation? This is another BS story but you can't denied it's interesting to read

According to In Touch;

Kim Kardashian is desperate to save face as Kanye West abandons her just weeks after their wedding. Kim Kardashian has made a career out of flaunting her perfect life.
So after a day of lounging in the sun in lush Punta Mita Mexico, on July 18, she dutifully shared bikini selfies with her nearly 40 million social media followers . . . But In Touch has learned it's all nothing more than a carefully crafted smoke screen - and that just 58 days after exchanging vows, Kim and Kanye's marriage is over.
That guy is too obsessed with Kim to walk away from her. So not buying this story...at all!

The man looks like he regrets his action, but not the woman...see the smirk on her face...lol. A couple have been arrested after they were filmed having sex on a crowded beach in Florida in front of children, including a 4 year old girl.

Elissa Alvarez, 20 (pictured right), straddled Jose Caballero, 39, (pictured left) on a blanket for 25 minutes in full view of other beach-goers before they calmly went for a swim

When they returned from the swim and started again, a disgusted grandma filmed their actions on her mobile phone before calling police. They were arrested & charged with lewd & lascivious behaviour.

The grandma who recorded the porno on her phone said;
"This went on for about 25 minutes. I’ve lived here since 1978 and I go to the beaches, and I’ve never seen anything like this. They laid on the beach and passed out for hours. We thought they were dead. But when they woke up, they cuddled for a while - then they started into the same thing they did before.”

NeNe Leakes slams Wendy Williams for dissing her over Birkin bag

On her show's 'Hot Topics' yesterday, Wendy Williams dissed “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes for decorating her $10k Hermes Birkin bag with handwritten sayings she coined on the hit reality show. I don't know exactly what Wendy said on her show because I haven't watched it (it's not online) but whatever it was pissed NeNe off big time. She took to her blog today to slam the talk show host, claiming she decorated the expensive bag to raise money for charity and not to be wasteful. See what NeNe wrote below...
Wendy I am sure people think that I’ve done something to you, maybe we had a beef or I slept with your man but none of that is true! I’ve actually only been nice to you! I gave you a beautiful black $3,200 Celine Phantom Bag to celebrate your 500th show but you haven’t spoken of that! But what you have chosen to do is constantly speak negative of me and lie on me! 

Not sure if this is news but...:-)
