Kim Kardashian Says She and Her Sisters Fight After They Watch Episodes of *KUWTK*

With Keeping Up With the Kardashians now marking its 15th season of petty fights and rich people drama on the network, its main star, Kim Kardashian, has reached a creative milestone in her own right. The reality star appeared on the latest episode of Ashley Graham’s podcast to talk about the longevity of her career, revealing that E! has always given her unprecedented creative control when it comes to editing and approving scenes for the show. “I’m not in the actual editing room but I watch every cut and every edit,” she explained. “And that, I think, has always been the magic to being ourselves and showing everything, because we know that we could really have a say in it. [It’s] really rare for them to give us that from the start.”

Kardashian’s control is similar to the one her mother, Kris Jenner, has possessed for many years on the network, which has been criticized for the sheer scope of its influence—by fellow E! stars, no less. Still, Kardashian makes it clear that her creative involvement isn’t to make her look better in comparison to other family members: “We’ve never really edited out crazy content.” All of their infamous on-screen fights, in fact, have become a fundamental tenet of the show—as silly as that sounds—but re-watching those moments when they air still isn’t a fun experience for the family.

“When you watch it, you get heated all over again. We literally start fighting all over again over the same thing,” Kardashian continued. “Even if we like are so crazy mad at each other, it won’t be long before we’re all good. The fact that so many people text me even now if a rerun comes on, they’re like, ‘Are you and Kourtney okay?’ And I’m like, ‘We went on vacation together. This has been months since we filmed that.’” Ah, the magic of television.

President Donald Trump Openly Mocked Christine Blasey Ford’s Testimony Against Brett Kavanaugh

President Donald Trump may have stooped to a new low Tuesday night when he decided to openly mock Christine Blasey Ford and her allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during a rally in Mississippi.

And honestly, the only thing that’s surprising is that it took this long to happen. Gone are the headlines that touted the president’s “restraint,” like CNN’s, which read “Aides quietly stunned by Trump’s respectful handling of Kavanaugh accuser.” In the piece, two sources quoted Trump as saying, “Why would I attack her?”

But last night, that’s exactly what he did, going so far as to imitate Ford.

“’I had one beer.’ Well do you think it was… ‘Nope. It was one beer.’ Oh good. How did you get home? ‘I don’t remember.’ How did you get there? ‘I don’t remember.’ Where is the place? ‘I don’t remember,'” Trump said, prompting laughter from those in the crowd. “How many years ago was it? ‘I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know.’ What neighborhood was it in? ‘I don’t know.’ Where’s the house? ‘I don’t know. Upstairs. Downstairs. I don’t know. But I had one beer that’s the only thing I remember.'”

“And a man’s life is in tatters,” Trump continued. “A man’s life is shattered.” Then, echoing his comments from earlier in the day when he expressed fear for young men in the age of #MeToo, he claimed that he had many “false allegations” against him, adding that the crowd should “think of your son” because men are “guilty until proven innocent.”

Perhaps even more jarring than Trump’s own outrageous words is the laughter and applause of the crowd. Many social media users made the astute connection between the reactions at the rally and Ford’s poignant testimony about her memory of the alleged attack: “Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter, the uproarious laughter between the two,” she said of the one thing she remembers the most about that night more than 30 years ago.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.)—who helped request the FBI investigation into Kavanaugh which delayed the confirmation vote—appeared on the Today show Wednesday morning and condemned Trump’s speech. “There’s no time and no place for remarks like that,” he said. “I wish he hadn’t have done it. It’s kind of appalling.”

Twitter agreed—and many wonder how this type of rhetoric will affect senators like Flake, Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Susan Collins (R-Maine), and Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) who are thought to be on the fence regarding their Kavanaugh nomination votes.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has said that the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination this week.

Meghan Markle Loves & Other Stories As Much As You Do

We know Meghan Markle loves her custom Givenchy. We also know the Duchess of Sussex loves her off-the-rack Aritzia, J.Crew, and other more affordable brands she probably shopped during her pre-royal days. While making her first official trip to Sussex with Prince Harry, Markle wore an outfit that proved we have more in common with a Duchess’s wardrobe than we might think.

Markle went with a monochromatic look, sticking with an olive-green color palette for her base layer and a cream coat up top to visit Edes House. The fashion blog Meghan’s Mirror, which tracks Markle’s outfits, identified her polished button-down as from & Other Stories, the beloved Swedish fast-fashion brand (which, by the way, is having an amazing sale right now.)

The rest of her outfit was a lot more luxe: Her coat was from Emporio Armani, her leather pencil skirt was from Hugo Boss, and her nude pumps were from Stuart Weitzman. She also carried a Gabriela Hearst bag.

Though it was in stock for a bit this morning, Markle’s $99 & Other Stories top has since sold out in her chosen green hue. It’s still available in black, white, and off-white, though.

That wasn’t the only affordable element of the Duchess’ look: Hello! brought attention to Markle’s new signet ring, which the publication identified as Missoma’s Mantra Open Heart Signet Ring, available online for $110. (Meghan’s Mirror pointed out that her favorite $44 Catbird Threadbare Rings also made an appearance.)

Kylie Jenner Skin Care Products Could Soon Be on Their Way

If Kylie Jenner hasn’t already hit that billionaire threshold—”self-made” or not—this could certainly move her into the 10-figure mark. Rumor has it that the 21-year-old is looking to expand her $800-million makeup empire to also include skin care.

As The Cut reports, it appears Jenner’s company, Kylie Cosmetics, recently filed three trademark applications: One for “Kylie Skin by Kylie Jenner” and two for “Kylie Skin.” That’s a whole lot of Kylie to be sure, and forget the fact that again, she has the skin of 21-year-old multi-millionaire, but the move would be one that makes so much sense. Now that quality skin care is becoming more accessible (and Instagramable), the category is outpacing sales for makeup. Skin care is also admittedly easier to buy online than a lipstick. Meaning, there’s a whole lot of money to be had in the race for all of our top shelves.

Looking more closely at the applications, it’s clear Jenner has plans to go hard. Her company filed trademarks for pretty much every product imaginable under the skin care umbrella: moisturizers, cleaners, face scrubs, toners, serums, masks, peels, and face mists, among others. “Body powders” is also mysteriously on the list.

It’s safe to say, her stans are stanning it.

Just think about all the possibilities for product names. Kylie Skin Insta-Filter Mist? Kylie Skin x Dr. Ourian Glow Peels? Kylie Skin Kylotion? (No? Doesn’t work?)

Where things get even more interesting is the second trademark application, which comes with this tidbit: “Retail store services featuring skin care products, skin care preparation products, cosmetics, cosmetic preparations, and gifts.” A Kylie Skin…spa? Imagine! But more likely, if we had to guess, it could mean that Kylie is launching an in-store skin care service at Ulta, where her makeup products will be launching in brick-and-mortar locations for the holiday season.

Time will tell. We’re just waiting for the Stormi Baby Skin trademark to come out.

See Fenty Beauty’s Nude Stunna Lip Paints on Four Women

When Rihanna launched Fenty Beauty’s Stunna Lip Paint last year—a bold blue-red shade based off her signature look—she didn’t just drop a red lipstick. Rih went all out with a weightless formula that glides on smooth and dries into a velvety matte finish. The brand flooded Instagram with photos of everyone from Slick Woods to Duckie Thot wearing the color to show how versatile it was. And Rihanna even made her own Insta tutorial for it. Honestly, would you expect anything less?

Which is why it should come as no surprise that now, almost a year later, she’s coming in even hotter with four new additions to the Stunna family. This time they’re nudes for every skin tone. And black—because in Rihanna’s world, you’d better believe that’s a neutral. As Fenty revealed the colors one by one last week, the fan responses came pouring in. Women of color praised Fenty for finally creating a nude in mind for dark skin (a “universal chocolate brown” called Unveil), which the brand says went through rigorous testing to confirm the claim. The black (surprise, surprise) was also met with similar enthusiasm, if not some slight hesitation.

The question, of course, you probably want to know though is if they’re worth the hype. We had four staffers put them to the test. Read on for their honest thoughts.

Donald Trump and His Son Think the #MeToo Era Is ‘a Very Scary Time’ for Men in America

As women rally and mobilize around survivors of sexual assault, and coming in a week that will see the one-year anniversary of the #MeToo Harvey Weinstein allegations, President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he’s highly concerned for the safety of America’s young men as he answered questions about the FBI inquiry into his Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh.

While en route to board Marine One, NBC National Correspondent Peter Alexander asked the president what message he had for both young men and women in America right now.

“Well, I’d say that it’s a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of,” Trump very quickly replied. “This is a very difficult time. What’s happening here has much more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court Justice. You could be somebody who was perfect your entire life and somebody could accuse you of something. Doesn’t necessarily have to be a woman, as everybody says, but somebody could accuse you of something and you’re automatically guilty. But in this realm, you’re truly guilty until proven innocent. That’s one of the very very bad things that’s taking place right now.”

According to a White House pool report, filed by Hunter Walker of Yahoo! News, Trump was then asked if he had a message for young women. Trump reportedly replied, “Women are doing great.”

Trump’s comments came just one day after a similar question was asked by the Daily Mail to his son, Donald Trump Jr.

“I’ve got boys, and I’ve got girls. And when I see what’s going on right now, it’s scary,” he told the outlet. When pressed on who he was more frightened for, he replied, “Right now, I’d say my sons.”

“For the people who are real victims of these things, when it is so obviously political in cases like this, it really diminishes the real claims.”

It should be noted that false reports count for between 2 and 10 percent of sexual assault allegations, according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. A sexual assault occurs every 98 seconds, and 90 percent of adult rape victims are female. In total, one out of every six American women has been the victim of sexual assault or rape in her lifetime.

It shouldn’t be surprising that Trump and his son would side with the accused, especially when you consider that 20 women have come forward with allegations that the president engaged in sexual misconduct.

But, it doesn’t make it any less shocking, especially when the numbers prove them wrong.

Best Women’s Loafers for Fall 2018: Easy and Stylish Flats and Platforms

During the summer wearing shoes is easy. All you have to do is slip your toes into a pair of sandals and you’re done. Fall makes things a little more complicated. It isn’t that boots aren’t amazing, but sometimes things get awkward when you try to pair them with jeans or with socks or with tights. But until it’s chilly enough to worry about that, may we suggest taking a look at the best loafers to wear this season.

Like with sandals, you can just shimmy into a pair of loafers and you’re done. Some of the best loafers right now don’t have backs (also known as ‘the mule’) which means you can wear them solo on a warmer fall evening. Some have platforms which means they give you the height of a heel with the ease of a flip-flop. Other look more like a slipper (complete with fluff and cushioning, thank you Gucci) which means you can basically roll out of bed and wear them right out. Almost all of them look great with tights or knee high socks as demonstrated by Chloë Sevigny and Alexa Chung.

So if you’re starting to think about what shoes are best to invest in this fall, loafers are probably the way to go. Shop below for our top picks and all the best ways to wear them.

Watch These Sexual Assault Survivors Confront Republican Senators at the Airport

While the FBI continues its investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, more women are coming forward to share their personal stories in hopes of swaying the opinions of senators who will eventually vote on whether or not to confirm the conservative judge.

But one group of women isn’t waiting until the vote for a change of heart. Over the weekend, The Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) organized their staff and volunteers to speak candidly with senators returning to Washington, D.C. at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. And as it turns out, some of those senators were left speechless.

“We were saying ‘look us in the eyes, actually have a conversation with us,'” the group’s President and Co-Executive Director Jennifer Epps-Addison told Bustle about confronting the men. She told the outlet that the group spent the weekend studying photos of both Democratic and Republican senators so they could recognize them on sight.

On Monday, Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) was approached by Epps-Addison, Patti Serrano, and Arizona State Representative Isela Blanc as he made his way through the terminal.

After complaining about being touched, he ducks into a men’s bathroom to avoid the women.

“How can you not talk to women who have been assaulted?” Epps-Adison asks. “How can you ignore our pleas?” Blanc continues, “You represent not just your state’s choice, but every American in this country, and every person that is vulnerable. This is a legacy, and a moment in history that will not be forgotten.”

“He [Perdue] really is demonstrating what women across the country are saying: It’s not only that you are not listening to us, but you are overtly hostile to us when we say that we want the full rights and dignity that everybody in this country deserves,” Epps-Anderson said in her interview with Bustle.

Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell also found himself on the receiving end of public criticism and questions. “Do you want the Republican party to be the party that is known for supporting rape and sexual assault?” a woman asks.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen women confront senators in the past week. Many believe that Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R-Ariz.) decision to call for the delayed vote and a limited investigation came in part because of a confrontation in an elevator by two brave sexual assault survivors, Ana Maria Archila and Maria Gallagher.

“I was sexually assaulted and nobody believed me,” one said to Flake. “I didn’t tell anyone, and you’re telling all women that they don’t matter, that they should just stay quiet because if they tell you what happened to them, you’re going to ignore them. That’s what happened to me, and that’s what you’re telling all women in America, that they don’t matter, that they just keep it to themselves.”

The vote on whether or not Kavanaugh gets a seat on the Supreme Court bench is scheduled to take place at the end of this week.
