"I just hope I'm not turning into one of those cat ladies that's Tweeting too many pictures of her pet!" she told

And find out why Lagerfield's cat probably has a better life than most humans. Will Mercy follow in Choupette's footsteps?

Lady Gaga responds to criticism of her weight

Posted by Kristi Palma September 26, 2012 06:45 AM

Lada Gaga, 26, is being criticized for her weight. It all stemmed from some unflattering photos taken of the Grammy-winning singer at a show.

In true Gaga fashion, her response has been fierce.

The singer stripped down to a bra and panties in photos posted on her official website, "Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15," she writes beside the photos. Earlier this year, Gaga revealed she battled eating disorders in high school, reports E! News in the video above, and she said in a radio interview she has gained close to 25 pounds and is currently on a diet.

As a result of all this hoopla, Gaga is starting a movement called the "Body Revolution" on her website. She is encouraging her fans to post photos and stories of their body image issues.

What do you think of the criticism and Gaga's response?

Jennifer Aniston with a baby bump?

We all know the actress is engaged to Justin Theroux, but is a baby on the way?

Nope. The belly bump is part of a video she shot for Smartwater, which pokes fun at the many rumors Aniston has battled through the years about pregnancy, her so-called obsession with fitness, and her infamous hair styles, according to the NY Daily News.

And the video has gone viral, E! News reports (watch for more info in the video above).

Ryan Seacrest makes a cameo as well.

At the end, the Smartwater logo appears with the tagline, "Even more refreshing than the truth."

Italy magazine publishes topless Kate pics; Sarah Ferguson says 'I have been there'

Posted by Kristi Palma September 17, 2012 09:21 AM

A 26-page spread of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was published in the Italian gossip magazine Chi today.

The spread features the couple sunbathing on a terrace while on vacation at a relative’s home in the south of France. And Kate Middleton is topless. Some of those photos were originally published last week by the French magazine Closer.

The palace is taking legal action against Mondadori publishing house, which owns both publications, and will seek an injunction today to stop further spread of the photos, The Associated Press reports.

William’s St. James’s Palace called this a ‘‘grotesque’’ invasion of their privacy, reports the AP.


Duchess Sarah Ferguson told the Daily Mail, "I have total empathy and sympathy for her. I have been there and know what it’s like."

Cameras caught Ferguson sunbathing at a remote villa in the South of France 20 years ago.

"It is a devastating invasion of one’s personal inner space. It is deplorable, abhorrent and despicable." she told the Daily Mail. (Photo: Paul Morigi/Getty Images)

Some, like these commentators at KDAF in Dallas, say Middleton should have known better. Watch what they have to say in the video below:

This all comes on the heels of nude photos of another royal family member surfacing -- Middleton's brother-in-law Prince Harry.

Do you agree with Ferguson that the invasion of privacy is "despicable?" Or should the Duchess of Cambridge have been more careful?
