Kim Kardashian West is following in her little sister’s footsteps. In 2019, Kylie Jenner sold a majority stake of her Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin companies to Coty for $600 million. Now, Kim’s finalized a $200 million deal that cedes 20 percent of her KKW Beauty brand to Coty. “I’m so proud of how the KKW brand has grown over the past four years, and I look forward to working with Coty for the next phase of innovation, advancement, and the ability to bring new launches to customers all around the world,” Kim said in a statement announcing the sale on Tuesday. “This relationship will allow me to lead the development of the creative elements that I specialize in, while benefiting from the incredible resources of an established company like Coty,” she added.

Drew Barrymore says she got stood up while using a dating app
Oh, the joys of online dating. Or not … On the Monday edition of “The Drew Barrymore” show, Drew shared some of her less-than-stellar experiences as a dating app user with guest Nikki Glaser. Among the worst? The date who bailed — but not until Drew had navigated through potential conflicts like traffic and scheduling to make herself available at the time and place they’d agreed on. “I booked a date with one guy, finally. He stood me up at the exact time we were supposed to meet,” she griped (via ET). “And I was like, ‘Can’t you be a jerk like an hour before?’ That would have been such a time saver.” After admitting she “felt so stupid” about the situation, she added that when she’s used a celeb-specific app, she’s managed to swipe right on the wrong guys. “There are big, high-powered men and of course, I didn’t go for any of those. I never have!” she joked. “I was like, oh, the comedy writer, that sounds fun.” Before changing the topic, the actress and mother of two admitted she also gets frustrated when she falls into comparing herself to other women on the apps. “And at the same time,” she added, “… I’m like, you know what? This is my body. I made two babies. I’m working with what I’ve got … I love these women in Victoria’s Secret campaigns,” she quipped. “I love these women on this app and I’m not going to compare myself to them.”
Patty Jenkins says she fought Warner Bros. ‘at every level’ to make ‘Wonder Woman’
Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins is now enjoying a green light from Warner Bros. to “fast-track” a third installment of the superhero film. But as she recently told Marc Maron on his podcast, making the movies she wanted to make was far from an easy feat. In fact, she described her interactions with the studio as “an internal war on every level.” “They wanted to hire me like a beard; they wanted me to walk around on set as a woman, but it was their story and their vision,” Patty said, according to TheMarySue. “And my ideas? They didn’t even want to read my script. There was such mistrust of a different way of doing things and a different point of view.” According to Patty, the studio pushed for a much darker character — one who had no problem with violent killings. “I was like, ‘Women don’t want to see that. Her being harsh and tough and cutting people’s heads off,'” Patty said. “I’m a Wonder Woman fan, that’s not what we’re looking for.” She even bailed on the project altogether at one point. “They came back to me a year later and said, ‘Do you want to do it your way?” she shared. “And boom, I just went and made the movie.” Despite its mediocre at best (two thumbs down at worst) reviews — and the fact that it premiered on HBO Max simultaneously — “Wonder Woman 1984” had the best domestic opening weekend at the box office of any movie since the start of the pandemic.
Teresa Giudice toasts to ‘new beginnings’ with her new beau
“New year New beginnings ???.” That’s how Teresa Giudice captioned a couple’s pic of herself with her new boyfriend, Luis Ruelas, at the start of the week. The two were first linked in November following Teresa’s split from Joe Giudice, who was deported to Italy after he completed his sentence for fraud. In a previous post, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star gushed that Luis was “the best thing to come out of 2020” for her. A source later told Page Six she and the digital marketing exec were “taking things very slow,” given that this is Teresa’s first major relationship since she and Joe split after 20 years of marriage. Joe, meanwhile, is reportedly dating attorney Daniela Fittipaldi.
Kelly Ripa, 50, reveals how she broke her sugar addiction
If your healthy New Year’s resolution docket includes forgoing sugar, take heart in knowing you’re not alone. Kelly Ripa recently delved into her own sweet tooth battle as part of the foreword for the new book, “Get Off Your Sugar,” by wellness expert Dr. Daryl Gioffre. The book challenges readers to tackle sugar addiction, more by adding nutrient-dense foods (a move he calls “strength eating”) than worrying about empty calories (the essence of “stress-eating”) Kelly, 50, credits the program outlined in “Get Off Your Sugar” to lasting changes she’s made this past year. “For years I had a candy drawer at home that I kept fully stocked and would dip into whenever I felt the faintest urge for sugar,” she writes in an excerpt published by People. “I knew that sugar isn’t good for you, but I figured that everybody needed to have some kind of vice, right? What was so bad about rewarding myself with something sweet?” Kelly continues: “What I didn’t fully appreciate is just how addictive sugar truly is.” Having once tried the doctor’s alkaline cleanse and felt much better, Kelly says she was “inspired” to ditch her candy drawer. But the cravings didn’t stop. She goes on to say Daryl’s program finally helped her kick the cravings — and she found it “doable,” she says. “Last year, when I turned 50, Dr. Daryl tested my biological age, and it showed I had the physical health of a 35-year-old,” the “Live” host writes. “Clearly, we’re doing something right!”
