Kanye West's "Bound 2" video, which features the rapper riding on a motorcycle while fiancé Kim Kardashian straddles him topless, was divisive even within the Kardashian family.
Family matriarch Kris Jenner was not pleased by her daughter's latest nude antics
"She started crying, saying how ashamed she was to see her daughter being 'forced into something so degrading,'" the source continued. "She's saying that Kim's destroyed all her credibility."
Sisters Khloe and Kourtney were reportedly also miffed by the racy video.
"Kourtney told her she thought the video was disgusting and disrespectful, to the family and all their relatives, but also questioned why Kim did it," the insider said. "They are considering an intervention."
WELL BEYONCE MAY BE ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS PEOPLE IN THE WORLD BUT THAT STATUS WAS THROWN OUT OF THE WINDOW IN EGYPT!
The singer was stopped from seeing the Pyramids because she kept renowned archaeologist Zahi Hawass waiting and refused to apologize, he has revealed.
"Most people I take on tours are very nice and we become friends. But this lady…," Hawass, the former Egyptian Minister of State for Antiquities...
"She said she would come at 3 p.m. but she came late. I said 'You have to say I'm sorry I'm late'. But she didn't open her mouth.
"I brought a photographer and she also had a photographer and a guard. When my photographer started to shoot, he said 'No, Stop! I am the one who says yes or no, not you.' I said 'In that case since you almost hit my photographer and you are not polite — out! I am not giving you the privilege of having you on my tour.' I said Beyoncé was stupid and I left," he told the newspaper. Hawass lost his job during the uprising in Egypt in 2011.
He has been accused of corruption over the alleged smuggling of antiquities.

Light enters the eye through the cornea and is further refracted when it hits the lens. Here it is flipped upside down and projected onto the retina. The images we see then remain inverted until they reach the part of our brain called the visual cortex, where visual information is processed, enhanced, and reconfigured into the finalized images that we see.

If new details in the Chris Brown alleged DC assault case turn out to be true, the R&B singer may have to thank a secret service agent for preventing him from going to jail.
TMZ claims to have access to documents that reveal a witness to the October 27th altercation outside the W hotel overheard the apparent victim admit to police he was never struck by Brown. The officer later denied speaking to the witness, but a secret service agent who was at the scene also apparently heard the alleged victim’s admission that Brown never assaulted him. The agent shared that information with DC police.
Michael Jackson's family fears Dr. Conrad Murray will KILL someone else if he's allowed to practice medicine again ...
... most of them are both offended and afraid at Murray's bid to regain his right to practice. They can't believe Murray would have a ghost of a chance to practice after being convicted and jailed for the death of Michael.
The family scoffs at the notion that he didn't harm anyone other than MJ during his 20 years of practice. They believe Murray acted so recklessly with Michael -- partly out of greed and partly because he was a starf**ker.
But the family will almost certainly not appear at any medical board hearing over Murray's license... they've had more than enough of dealing with the good doc.
BULLYING COMES IN VARIOUS FORMS. Second-year offensive tackle Jonathan Martin left the franchise Monday after reacting badly to a lunch room prank by his teammates. A source told FOX Sports that Martin’s frustration stemmed from 1½ seasons of bullying and taunting from some teammates that had gone beyond the player hazing that sometimes occurs in NFL locker rooms.
...so Adrianne Flowers is out of money to buy food for her family. That is no surprise. Feeding five kids is expensive, and the roughly $600 in food stamps she gets from the federal government never lasts the whole month. "I'm barely making it," said the 31-year-old Washington, D.C., resident and single mother.
Starting Friday, the money is likely to run out even quicker.
That is when Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, benefits are set to fall for more than 47 million lower-income people -- 1 in 7 Americans -- most of whom live in households with children, seniors or people with disabilities. Barring congressional intervention, the maximum payment for a family of four will shrink from $668 a month to $632, or $432 over the course of a year.
That amounts to 21 meals per month, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The cuts will leave participants in the program, better known as food stamps, with an average of $1.40 to spend on each meal. The amount people get could sink even more if Congress makes deeper cuts later this year when House and Senate lawmakers try to hammer out a farm bill.
The Nov. 1 benefit cuts "will be close to catastrophic for many people," said Ross Fraser, a spokesman for Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief charity, which estimates that this week's SNAP reduction will result in a loss of nearly 2 billion meals for poor families next year.
U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Wednesday said she is responsible for the technical problems plaguing healthcare.gov, the federal website for the healthcare law's insurance marketplace.
"Hold me accountable for the debacle. I'm responsible," Sebelius, the nation's top healthcare official, told the House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee.
She said while Michelle Snyder, the chief operating officer for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), was in charge of integrating the website's systems, Snyder was not to blame.
CMS is the federal agency overseeing much of the implementation of the 2010 healthcare law, including the health insurance exchange.
It's not exactly a surprise that Kanye West is Kim Kardashian's biggest fan. The 36-year-old musician sang his fiancée's praises during an On Air With Ryan Seacrest radio interview on Tuesday, Oct. 29. In fact, he's lobbying to get the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star her first Vogue cover.
"There's no way Kim Kardashian shouldn't be on the cover of Vogue. She's like the most intriguing woman right now. She's got BarbaraWalters calling her like everyday," he said, noting that reality stars have often been overlooked by mainstream fashion magazines. "And collectively, we're the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [BarackObama] is wearing. MichelleObama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day."
When his girl landed the cover of CR Fashion Book, West saw it as a transcendent moment. "[Former French Vogue editor] CarineRoitfeld supports my girl. That's a breakthrough," he explained. "There's a wall of classism that we are breaking through."
Jay-Z -- under increasing pressure to back out of a collaboration with the luxury store Barneys New York after it was accused of racially profiling two black customers -- said Saturday he's being unfairly "demonized" for just waiting to hear all of the facts. The rap mogul made his first statement about the controversy in a posting on his website. He has come under fire for remaining silent as news surfaced this week that two young black people said they were...

The White House released the following description of Allison ahead of the president's speech:
Karmel Allison was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when she was nine years old. She has stayed on the same insurance ever since, despite constantly rising costs, for fear she would not be able to find a plan that would cover her due to her pre-existing condition. Allison recently began researching her options on CoveredCA and has publically described her experience as finally feeling equal to others, including her young and healthy husband, when it comes to access to coverage.
"The problem has been that the website that's supposed to make it easy to apply for and purchase the insurance is not working the way it should for everybody. There's no sugarcoating it. The website has been too slow. People have getting stuck during the application process," Obama said at a press conference from the Rose Garden. "And I think it's fair to say that nobody's more frustrated by that than I am. Precisely because the product is good, I want the cash registers to work, I want the checkout lines to be smooth, so I want people to be able to get this great product. And there's no excuse for the problems."
While assuring the public that these issues will be fixed, the president was quick to point out that the online method was not the only method of securing health insurance. The president also said that just because there is some difficulty accessing the product does not make the product any less valuable.
"Here's the bottom line. The product, the health insurance, is good. The prices are good. It is a good deal. People don't just want it; they're showing up to buy it," he said. "Nobody's madder than me about the fact that the website isn't working as well as it should, which means it's going to get fixed. And in the meantime, you can bypass the website and apply by phone or in person."
In the meantime, a "tech surge" of people from inside and outside the government is expected to join the Department of Health and Human Services in trying to figure out the issue and fix it permanently, Reuters reported.
When the website was launched, the problems were brushed off as just a result of the influx of site visitors eager to sign up on the first day. Three weeks later, that excuse no longer cuts it, with software and system-design issues coming to light.
"Our team is bringing in some of the best and brightest from both inside and outside government to scrub in with the team and help improve healthcare.gov," the administration said in a blog post that was published Sunday on the HHS website. "We're also putting in place tools and processes to aggressively monitor and identify parts of healthcare.gov where individuals are encountering errors or having difficulty using the site."
Republicans, who have looked for every opportunity to discredit the law (and repeal it), jumped on these issues as proof that the program is a failure.
"God only knows how much money they've spent, and it's a failure. You know, the government simply isn't going to be able to get this job done correctly," Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on CBS' Face the Nation, USA Today reported.
