Lamar Odum found unconscious in a Nevada brothel owned by Denis Hof on Tuesday. He’d been “partying there since Saturday and had, supposedly, been taking a “herbal Viagra substitute.” Khloe Kardashian, his former wife, was forced to leave her “sultry lingerie shoot” to go see Odum at the hospital.

Jennifer Lawrence is “over” trying to  be likable. Join the club, sister.

Caitlyn Jenner set to be honoured as Glamour magazine’s “woman of the year.”

The man who murdered 17-year-old Georgia Williams could have been stopped, had the police taken action the first time he tried to strangle a girl in 2008. It’s time to start taking male violence seriously.
