Kendall Jenner slams acne critics after Golden Globes
Tell 'em, Kendall Jenner! The Vogue it-girl's Golden Globes appearance on Sunday, Jan. 7, was met with a few nasty tweets by viewers who noticed a bumpy breakout situation under her makeup. Kendall, who has spoken openly about how self-conscious her skin issues have made her in the past, didn't shy away from the facing negative feedback head-on — and turning it right around, courtesy of a fan who apparently thought the backlash was unfair. "Ok but @KendallJenner showing up and strutting her acne while looking like a gorgeous star is what every girl needs to understand," the fan's post read. Kendall retweeted the compassionate message, adding, "never let that s— stop you!" After the ceremony, the 22-year-old also posted about the larger issue that was on everyone's minds during this year's awards show — solidarity in the face of revelations about the sexual harassment and assault that's plagued Hollywood for decades. "Honored and humbled to be able to attend the Golden Globes with @voguemagazine. my eyes were opened and my heart is full seeing all of the men and women who were a part of this vital change!" Kendall wrote. "I too stand with all women #TimesUp."
Oprah Winfrey sends Weight Watchers stock soaring after Globes speech, White House rumors
Oprah Winfrey more or less won the entire Golden Globes this year when she delivered one of the most moving speeches in awards show history upon accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. Apparently, she deserves an award on Wall Street, too. As buzz about her speech sparked rumors about a possible presidential run, Weight Watchers — which counts the media mogul as its main spokesperson and 10 percent owner — saw its stock shares shoot up in value by 13.7 percent, according to the New York Post. By the afternoon on Monday, Jan. 8, shares were valued at $53.35 each, giving Oprah herself a $40 million stock boost. That jump came on the heels of CNN's report that "close friends" of Oprah confirmed she's been "actively thinking" about a White House bid. Though she's denied whispers about a move into politics, Oprah could certainly afford to run in 2020: according to Bloomberg, her current estimated net worth is around $3.7 billion. (Fun fact: Donald Trump's net worth was closer to $2.9 billion as of Tuesday, Jan. 9.) Since Oprah announced she was coming on board at Weight Watchers as a part owner and face for the brand, its value has gone up by more than 350 percent.
How Jennifer Lawrence ended up with half a face-full of makeup thanks to Emma Stone
How did Hollywood pals Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone spend the rest of their night after the Golden Globes on Sunday, Jan. 7? Giggling and teasing one another, apparently. In a video posted to J.Law's Facebook page (via Us Weekly), she has Emma hold her phone up as she hides half her face. "What happened tonight?" Emma can be heard asking. "Well, you had told me that you wanted me to be your date to afterparties so I got us some tickets to the afterparties, I booked a car and I was halfway through glam when you told me that you didn't want to go. You just wanted to come over to my house," says a half-smiling Jennifer. So I sent my hair and makeup team home." She then slowly turns to face the camera, revealing half a face full of makeup. "And now," she says as the two burst into laughter, "this is what I look like." Meh, we'll take a girlfriend and one made-up eye over a night on the town any day!

Blac Chyna: Kardashians 'will come after you if you leave'
Blac Chyna took her Kardashian-related grievances back to court recently, filing new documents in her lawsuit against Rob Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West and Kris Jenner. In the papers, Chyna accused the family of sabotaging the reality show she shared with her then-boyfriend, Rob, "Rob & Chyna." In an excerpt of the documents published by TMZ, lawyers for Chyna argue: "The unwritten rule no one told [her] when she began her relationship with Kardashian is that the entire family will come after you if you leave, using their fame, wealth and power to take you down, including getting your television show cancelled (despite great ratings), spreading lies about you, and even funding a bogus lawsuit about a crumbled gingerbread house." The papers also claim the family intentionally ruined her career as a means of preventing her from competing with them "commercially or on social media," according to TMZ. Rob, Kim and Kris have requested that the case be dismissed. They believe the show was canceled not because of their doing but because of the restraining order Chyna got on Rob, which prevented them from interacting.

Kathy Griffin files new documents in case against neighbor
Kathy Griffin's drawn-out battle with her neighbor Jeffrey Mezger continues. This week, TMZ reported the comedian has asked the court to refuse to allow Jeffrey to present items and references from her comedy act, including the controversial image of of her holding Donald Trump's bloody, disembodied head, as evidence in the trial. In court documents, Kathy reportedly makes the case such examples would shift attention away from the point of the case — the threats she says Jeffrey has lobbed at her and her boyfriend — by focusing instead on her personality. As of Tuesday, Jan. 9, the judge had not ruled on the request. The court did, however, rule that Kathy may not include security footage as evidence in court. Jeffrey has complained Kathy's security cameras are invasive and have recorded his private conversations. Kathy has denied both claims.
