Kim Kardashian Finally Comes Clean About Her Book Club with Chrissy Teigen

Long, long ago, just a couple of weeks into Donald Trump’s presidency, Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen offered some hope for Americans: they announced that they were forming a book club, warming everyone’s hearts with the delightful prospect of observing the Kardashians engage in some hard-hitting literary discourse, no doubt accompanied by Teigen’s hilarious tweets.

The club was of course always going to be exclusive—sadly, we can’t all cozy up on the couch with Teigen and the Kardashians. Though from the start, the pair used their platforms to make it seem just a bit accessible. Kim, for one, told her millions of followers what it was like to speak to the author of the book club’s first pick, Embraced by the Light by Betty J. Eadie, a ’90s bestseller about the author’s near-death experience. Here’s a never-before-seen footage of their book club that Kim Kardashian posted on her official app!

Chrissy Teigen Is Turning ‘Cravings’ Into A Home Goods Empire

Chrissy Teigen built a massive following with just 1 cookbook … and now it looks like she’s ready to build an empire around it.

The supermodel just applied to lock down the trademark, “Cravings,” to use on a bunch of home goods. The name comes from her 2016 cookbook “Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat.” According to the docs, Chrissy’s looking to slap “Cravings” on housewares like kitchen appliances, hair dryers, bed linens, towels, comforters, window treatments and more.

Chrissy appears to be branching into the blogosphere, too. Docs show she also applied to use “Cravings” for the name of a blog dedicated to homemaking, lifestyle, cooking and, of course, recipes.

Here’s How a Man Got on Chrissy Teigen’s Tokyo Flight Without a Ticket

If you’ve been following along with Chrissy Teigen‘s crazy story about her flight to Tokyo, you’re probably wondering how someone got onto the flight without a ticket. We finally have the answer!

Two brothers, who are American citizens, reportedly got onto the flight using the same ticket, which was duplicated. They both were traveling to Tokyo, but had booked flights on separate airlines so they were able to get through security without a problem.

One brother had a ticket on All Nippon Airways and the other had a ticket on a United Airlines flight, law enforcement sources told ABC News. The brothers have nearly identical names and used the same ticket to get on the ANA flight, though it’s not clear how the brother with a United ticket found a seat on the ANA plane. The FBI is considering weighing criminal charges against them.

“During the flight, the cabin crew became aware that one of the passengers boarded the incorrect flight and notified the pilot,” ANA said in a statement. “As part of the airline’s security procedure, the pilot in command decided to return to the originating airport, where the passenger was disembarked. ANA is researching the situation currently to determine how the passenger boarded the flight.”

Four hours into the 11-hour flight to Tokyo, the plane turned around and returned to Los Angeles.

Chrissy Teigen’s Flight to Tokyo Diverts Back to L.A. After Passenger Realizes They’re on Wrong Flight

Chrissy Teigen was on a flight to Tokyo on December 26 that had to be diverted back to Los Angeles after four hours in the air… because a passenger realized they were on the wrong flight.

Not only was the passenger on the wrong flight, the person reportedly had a ticket for a totally different airline. Chrissy live-tweeted what happened and instead of having the plane land in Tokyo, the plane rerouted and flew four hours back to Los Angeles.

“Why did we all get punished for this one person’s mistake? Why not just land in Tokyo and send the other person back? How is this the better idea, you ask? We all have the same questions,” Chrissy tweeted.

Thankfully, she doesn’t seem too upset. She wrote, “I don’t know why I’m not more upset about this. The pleasure I get out of the story is worth more to me than a direct flight to Tokyo.”

Chrissy Teigen Wants You to Shop (Red) And Save Lives This Holiday Season

In honor of World AIDS Day, Julia Roberts, Chrissy Teigen, and more stars are encouraging everyone to knock out their Christmas lists by shopping RED.

 

In a quirky (RED) holiday shopping FAQ video that the non-profit organization shared on Facebook Friday, the starlets, along with the rocker, Olivia Wilde, and Kumail Nanjiani answer a few unusual shopping questions to let people know how to shop (RED), fight AIDS, and save lives.

Through their responses in the clip, each star encourages shoppers to purchase a (RED) product from Amazon, given that a portion of the proceeds will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa. Roberts pops up when a woman asks if it’s safe to use (RED) products even though she’s on medication. “Yes, (RED) products are safe to use in conjunction with your current medication,” Roberts, who rocks a structured black blazer over a (RED) shirt said.

Teigen, meanwhile, makes the point that (RED) products are a great resource for those who are having trouble figuring what gifts to buy for Christmas. Bono quipped, “If they don’t like saving lives, you shouldn’t be buying them gifts anyway.”

Bono co-founded the organization in 2006 with Bobby Shriver to “harness the power of people and companies to help fight AIDS,” according to the non-profit’s website. Every dollar raised during the (RED) Shopathon will be matched by The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, up to $15 million, and there are a ton of ways that you can help.

– Through Dec. 31, shop more than 150 brilliant (RED) products that raise money for the Global Fund to fight AIDS—including fashion, cosmetics, and more—at amazon.com/RED or via the Amazon App. Bank of America will donate 30 cents for every dollar spent on amazon.com/RED up to Dec. 31, up to $1.5 million

– Make a $10 donation to fight AIDS at omaze.com/RED, where fans can enter to win experiences including playing mini golf with U2’s Bono, The Edge, Adam and Larry, working out with Charlize Theron at a workout session, hitting the red carpet with Reese Witherspoon at the premiere of A Wrinkle in Time, or joining Sean “Diddy” Combs on set at The Four on Fox.

– Buy Apple products. To mark World AIDS Day week, 400 Apple stores will feature a red Apple logo, and for every Apple Pay transaction made at a retail location, online or in-app, Apple will make a $1 donation to the Global Fund.

– Book one of the new (ANDAZ)RED Cabanas starting Dec. 5th. With every booking, participating hotels will donate 30 percent of each package or rental rate to (RED)’s fight to end AIDS.

– Buy your fave holiday drink at Starbucks. The company will contribute 25 cents to fight AIDS for every Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte or Eggnog Latte purchased in participating U.S. and Canada stores.

Happy shopping!
