Kim Kardashian was Bound and Gagged?!
According to TMZ, Kim Kardashian was bound and gagged when she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris over the weekend. It turns out there were FIVE men involved. Kim was staying at what's supposed to be kind of a secret apartment-style hotel complex where the rich and famous go when they're in Paris. Somehow the robbers made their way in, tied up the concierge, then two of them went into Kim's room. They zip-tied and duct-taped her hands, then grabbed her by the ankles, duct-taped her feet and put her in the bathtub. Then they stole $11 million worth of jewelry.
During the whole thing, Kim was begging them not to hurt her, so they duct-taped her mouth, too. After they'd taken all her jewelry, they escaped on bicycles. Now, it turns out there was another person in the apartment…a friend of Kim's named Simone. She locked herself in a downstairs bathroom and texted Kim's bodyguard and her sister Kourtney, who were both out clubbing with Kendall Jenner.
Kim eventually freed herself, and the bodyguard showed up about two minutes after the thieves left. The whole thing only took about six minutes. Kim gave a statement to police, and hopped a plane for the States. Sources say Kanye is feeling pretty helpless right now…He even cancelled a pair of shows this week.
ABC is reviving "The Gong Show" with Will Arnett. It's unclear whether Will is also appearing on the show, or if he's just producing. It's also too early to say what celebrities might be on it, or when it'll premiere.
Toni Braxton Hospitalized
Toni Braxton spent four days in the hospital due to complications from lupus. Luckily, her issues weren't life-threatening, and she's back home recovering. Her rep said, quote, "She has been released and starts rehearsals for her upcoming tour this week. She was not in serious condition, though lupus is a serious disease and must be monitored at all times."
