Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen troll Kanye West on Twitter
That's what you get for returning to Twitter with sassy women in your midst. As Kanye West reacclimates himself to the world of social media, his wife, Kim Kardashian West, and her pal, Chrissy Teigen, are, um, not exactly there to help. Unless by "help" you mean crack us up. One of Kanye's more meta tweets this week sent Kim and Chrissy onto a hilarious tangent in which they tried to decipher his exact meaning. "Sometimes you have to get rid of everything," Yeezy tweeted on Tuesday, April 17. Cue Kim: "Wait…EVERYTHING?!?!?! 🙋🏻♀️." Enter Chrissy: "I have an air mattress here and I have been itching to bust it out if you need." Oh, wait. Kim wasn't done: "Might need some more for the kids? Just not clear on what everything really means. I need clarity. Thanks for being such a good friend. Maybe John can call and inquire? But maybe he means friends too? This is confusing." Aaaand Chrissy for the finish: "You're right. we are all screwed. I still have the bouncy house from Saturday!! it's a bed and a house in one." We assume it was while the two pals chuckled to themselves that Kim tossed in one more note just to be sure nobody watching the exchange was too slow to get that she and Chrissy's trolls were meant in jest. "For anyone who has absolutely no humor in their soul," Kim added, "please know my tweets are a joke and I will die laughing if I see blogs and media really think I am being serious. So don't even try it."

Meghan Markle breaks tradition to join Prince Harry at youth forum
As Prince Harry's work in his Commonwealth Youth Ambassador role in London this week, his fiancee, Meghan Markle, is breaking another royal tradition to be by his side. The actress was expected to start working with Harry, Prince William and Duchess Kate's Royal Foundation behind-the-scenes until after she and Harry are married, but that no longer seemed to be the plan when she joined Harry at the Commonwealth Youth Forum on Wednesday, April 18. The two were photographed speaking with delegates from the organization, whose mission is "to promote cross-cultural connections and to achieve consensus among youth leaders on the policies required to address the challenges and opportunities facing young people," according to the group's website. "You have this umbrella to hold you together," Meghan told delegates to the forum, which was focused on the theme "Powering Our Common Future." "It's incredible. Stay in touch —maximize it," she advised, according to E! News. Harry and Meghan are also planning to attend at reception hosted by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to discuss women's empowerment issues this week.
Charlize Theron gained 50 pounds by eating late-night mac-and-cheese
In her new film, "Tully," Charlize Theron plays a mother of two kids and a newborn whose life changes when her brother gives her a nanny to help out around the house. The star gained about 50 pounds for the role — and she has a little thing called mac-and-cheese to thank for the additional weight. "I wanted to feel what this woman felt, and I think that was a way for me to get closer to her and get into that mindset," Charlize tells ET. "You know, it was a huge surprise to me. I got hit in the face pretty hard with depression. Yeah, for the first time in my life I was eating so much processed foods and I drank way too much sugar. I was not that fun to be around on this film." In order to keep the pounds from falling off, she ate constantly. "Like, all of a sudden you're just done eating that amount and then it becomes a job. I remember having to set my alarm in the middle of the night in order to just maintain [the weight]," Charlize recalls. "I would literally wake up at two in the morning and I'd have a cup of cold macaroni and cheese just next to me. I would wake up and I would just eat it … I would just, like, shove it in my throat. It's hard to maintain that weight." It was a believable weight gain, at least — even her kids thought she was pregnant because she looked so different. Shedding the pounds, Charlize adds, wasn't as easy as putting them on. "I was worried. I was like, this is taking a really long time," she says. "Because on 'Monster,' I just didn't snack for five days and I was fine. You know your body at 27 is a little different than your body at 43, and my doctor made sure to make me very aware of that. Like, you are 42, calm down, you're not dying, all good."

I will never be mad at you again."

Is Paula Patton's new boyfriend married?
Someone in the inner circle of Paula Patton's new boyfriend, Zachary Quittman, is not happy Paula's talking about her relationship with him. It seems Zachary is not exactly single. "They're married, they're not even legally separated," an insider griped to Page Six. "He doesn't even have his stuff out of the house," the source said Tuesday, adding that the real estate agent coaches kids' sports teams and "is known by a lot of families" in Malibu. Paula recently said in an interview that she and Zachary met at a basketball game, implying that it was because they both have kid. "I'm just kind of disgusted that [Paula] is being that callous to talk about the basketball game when we come from a very small town and everybody knows about this," said the source. Zachary is reportedly living with Patton, whom he started dating "about a month ago," according to the tab. The source added that Zachary's wife is planning to begin the process of filing for divorce. "She's on the floor, [but] she's so worried about the safety of the kids," the source said. "She just doesn't want to rock the boat," said the insider. Paula shares custody of her son, Julian, with his father, Robin Thicke.
Beyonce's mom worried white audiences wouldn't get Beyonce's Coachella performance
Not that we needed more proof Beyonce is the queen of us all, but moms don't often give their daughters the kind of public "you were right, I was wrong" declaration Tina Knowles Lawson ponied up to Bey after her devastatingly brilliant Coachella set last weekend. In a nutshell, Tina worried Bey's decision to channel Wakanda and Queen Nefertiti while celebrating the musical traditions of historically black colleges — and the strength of American black women in general — would be lost on her white audience members. "I told Beyonce that I was afraid that the predominately white audience at Coachella would be confused by all of the black culture and Black college culture because it was something that they might not get," Tina admitted on Instagram this week, sharing a quote from a reporter's coverage of the incredible, game-changing performance. "[Beyoncé's] brave response to [my concerns] made me feel a bit selfish and ashamed, Tina continued. "She said, 'I have worked very hard to get to the point where I have a true voice, and at this point in my life and my career, I have a responsibility to do what's best for the world and not what is most popular.' She said that her hope is that after the show young people would research this culture and see how cool it is, and young people black and white would listen to " LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING and see how amazing the words are for us all and bridge the gap. She also hopes that it will encourage young kids to enroll in our amazing HIstorically Black Colleges and Universities . I stand corrected ❤️." After her performance, Beyonce announced she was donating $25,000 to each of four historically black universities for a BeyGOOD-funded "Homecoming Scholars Award Program." The fund will pay for a scholarship for one student for the 2018-2019 school year to Xavier, Wilberforce, Tuskegee and Bethune-Cookman Universities. (Like we said. She's the queen of us all.)
Bethenny Frankel pops up on Bumble, the League dating apps
Bethenny Frankel's single — but not quite ready to mingle. That's according to her rep, who recently explained to Page Six that while the "Real Housewives" veteran's profile appears on multiple dating sites including Bumble and the League, she's not actually looking to date. "Yes, she tried a few apps, but it wasn't for her. She has also been doing research for her own dating app," said her rep, who added that the Skinnygirl founder "isn't dating anyone now as she is focusing on her daughter and work." Back in February, Bethenny and her ex, Dennis Shields, were spotted lounging by a pool in Miami, sparking dating rumors. At the time, a source said the two were just close friends and that she was seeing other people.
