The Kardashian sisters are battling future sister-in-law Blac Chyna
A new family war is brewing. The Kardashians might be in love with Rob Kardashian's new baby girl, Dream, but they're not on board with her mama, Rob's fiancée Blac Chyna, using the family name to cash in. TMZ reports that Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian's companies are opposing Chyna's request to trademark the name "Angela Renee Kardashian" — which would be her legal name if she marries Rob. Last May, Chyna filed legal papers to trademark the moniker for use in entertainment services, television and movie appearances, living as a "social media celebrity," and in hosting parties for profit. But in new legal docs, reports TMZ, the sisters claim that Chyna is "deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity" of the Kardashian name and that if she gets the trademark, they'll "suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill." We can't wait to hear what Rob thinks about this!

Bella Hadid was rejected from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last year
Bella Hadid emerged as one of the stars of the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris earlier this week, but last year — when sister Gigi Hadid and close friend Kendall Jenner were strutting their stuff for the lingerie giant — the brand didn't want her. Bella revealed the rejection in a new interview with Paper Magazine. "I was really surprised, but definitely excited," she said of learning she'd been cast this year. "I tried last year [to make the cut for] the show," she added. "I think everything happens for a reason."
Prince Harry's back in England after two-day detour to see Meghan Markle
Prince Harry might just be the hardest-working royal around these days. Three days after completing his two-week tour of the Caribbean on behalf of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II — and after spending a controversial two nights in Toronto with girlfriend Meghan Markle — the redheaded royal was back at work for the crown. On Dec. 7, Harry joined ICAP brokers, many of whom dressed up in silly costumes, for a charity fundraising day in London. According to the Daily Mail, he quipped, "I'm not entirely sure what country we're in," as he got in on the fun. No wonder he's jet-lagged: Instead of flying back to Britain on Sunday as planned, he made a last-minute change and took a commercial flight to Canada to see the "Suits" star for two days, drawing the ire of some who complained that taxpayers would be footing the bill for security during the unscheduled detour. Earlier in the week before her man's arrival, Meghan made headlines for a subtle but beautiful nod to her royal romance: She was photographed carrying bouquets of tulips while wearing a delicate $240 Maya Brenner necklace decorated with a tiny gold "H" and "M," reports E! News.

Sofia Vergara is being sued by her own embryos
There's a fascinating new twist in Sofia Vergara's bitter battle with former fiance Nick Loeb over the two female embryos they created six months before they split in 2014. First, let's recap: Nick previously made headlines for his lawsuit asking to have the embryos thawed and implanted in a surrogate, while Sofia — who's since married Joe Manganiello — has refused, citing their agreement that neither party can take any action regarding the embryos without the other's consent. (Her lawyer has previously said she wants them "frozen indefinitely.") Well now Page Six reports that on Dec. 6, a right-to-live lawsuit was filed on behalf of the fertilized eggs against their mother in Louisiana (a traditionally pro-life state where Nick went to college and continues to serve as a reserve police officer, sources told the gossip column). The embryos are listed as plaintiffs "Emma" and "Isabella" and the suit contends that by not being born, they've been deprived of an inheritance from a trust that has been created for them in the state, sources tell Page Six. Nick made the new legal move after refusing to name two ex-girlfriends who aborted his babies about 20 years ago following a California judge's ruling that he had to ID them so Sofia's counsel could question them about Nick's changing beliefs on abortion. The new lawsuit also includes text messages that were allegedly exchanged between Sofia and Nick about their embryos.

What's the deal with the Kim and Kanye split rumors?
It's not the first time rumors have emerged claiming Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West's marriage is in trouble, but Us Weekly's issue that hit newsstands Dec. 7 dropped a major bombshell: Kim "wants a divorce."

"They are like any normal couple where they do have to work at their marriage, and they do. Kim and Kanye's marriage is doing fine."
