KHLOE KARDASHIAN DEFENDS ‘PHOTOSHOP FAIL’: Khloe Kardashian is responding to fans once again accusing her of a “photoshop fail,” this time for her “elongated” appearance in the latest Good American campaign. “HA I'm cracking up! 4a few of those GA photos, we shot on a camera lens that creates a stretching effect.

I still have normal size hands/fingers,” the Good American co-founder tweeted in self-defense.
MICHAEL CHE’S GIFT TO COLIN JOST AND SCARLETT JOHANSSON IS …. On its way, and much feared. Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson got married in October of 2020, and they’re still waiting on their gift from Jost’s Weekend Update co-host on Saturday Night Live. They’re pretty nervous, Jost tells Ellen DeGeneres. “The whole time I was waiting for the other shoe to drop and wondering what his long con was going to be,” Jost, 38, said on the Wednesday, February 24, episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “The other day, he just kinda came up to me in the hallway and was like, ‘Hey, I got you something.’ And I was like, ‘What do you mean?’ And he’s like, ‘Wedding present. I’ll have to bring it by sometime.’ I’m like, ‘Oh God.’ So I’m waiting to find out what this thing is, but we’re both pretty concerned for our well-being.”
