LAD Bible says a South Korean woman, named Cherrie Lee, has spent $61,000 on plastic surgery to look like Kim Kardashian. Lee had eyelid surgery, three Brazilian butt lifts, several facial surgeries and two breast augmentations.
She is now a 34 GGG cup size and says, "I didn't see myself coming this far, but I got addicted to surgeries. Every time I went under the knife, I saw a positive change and I loved it. I always wanted the glamorous big boobs and big bum Kardashian look. Kim has always been an inspiration to me and she's the most beautiful woman in the world, in my eyes. I actually look like a completely different person now to before - I look Western, and some of my Korean family don't even recognise me any more. I know when to stop and I'm not planning any more surgeries now - I have achieved the look I always wanted.''

'At first with acting roles, I used to just be like, what seems like fun? Now it’s, what seems like fun and what resonates with my soul? Then I ask, who else is working on it? Will it be my friends? What I’ve noticed lately, though, is that casting has been coming to me first. So I’ve learned how to fight better too.''

Britney Spears' attorney, Matthew Rosengart, ripped Kevin Federline yesterday for posting of an overnight video of her disciplining their children. He wrote; "Britney has faithfully supported her children and she loves them dearly. Whether he realizes it or not, Mr. Federline has not only violated the privacy and dignity of the mother of his children, he has undermined his own children, whose privacy he should protect. Putting aside his ITV interview, Mr. Federline’s ill-advised decision to post an old video of his 11 and 12 year old children was cruel, bottom of the barrel stuff. In addition to demeaning himself and violating societal norms, he has now also created various legal issues for himself including, but not limited to, implicating cyber-harassment and cyber-bullying statutes, among other things."
The Ventura County Star says Britney Spears' ex-husband, Jason Alexander, has been found guilty of crashing her wedding in June. He plead no contest to aggravated trespassing and battery. Alexander was credited with spending 64 days in jail. The judge also issued a restraining order, which prevents him from coming within 100 yards of Britney and her husband.

My husband bought me lingerie for my birthday. I should have been excited, but wasn't. When I opened the gift box the lingerie was the wrong size. It was for a petite woman. When I looked at my husband he had many emotions on his face including confused, busted, smirking and speechless. He said he must have made a mistake when picking out the Victoria's Secret. Now, I'm starting to think he may have purchased the lingerie for someone else. We've been having issues as of late so now this is running through my head. I could see if he was one size off, but this was several and I'm curvy and almost full figured. Should I believe him when he says he made a 'dumb guy' mistake or delve deeper? Do you think he's cheating?
