Trouble in paradise: Looks like Beyonce feels snubbed after H&M shrunk down her signature bootylicious curves in new ad campaign photos!
Apparently, the star was outraged to find she had been retouched in shots for an H&M advertising campaign, and when she freaked out she insisted only natural pictures could be used.
An insider revealed last night to the NYP: “When Beyonce found out they had edited the way her body really looked, she hit the roof. She’s a true diva and was furious that she had been given such a snubbing. Her people refused to give the pictures the green light so H&M were forced to use the originals.”
Forced? I’m not saying airbrushing is good, but isn’t it a common practice in advertising?
H&M announced earlier this year that Beyonce, 31, would be the face of its 2013 summer collection. She has since appeared in its bikini and beachwear ads all over the world.
“Beyoncé was our only choice for this campaign and we were delighted when she said yes. Our goal has always been to portray Beyoncé as the strong and beautiful woman she is. It has been a wonderful working process and a close cooperation. Both parties are happy with the final images,” a rep for H&M told Page 6.
Again, I get how Beyonce might be pissed, but this seems fairy standard. Also, her pics look AMAZING. Decide for yourself if Beyonce is being a diva or not by checking out the pics HERE!

Rihanna really does find pleasure in pain…even if the pain is for beauty’s sake!
Sources at Dlisted reports that the staff Fuzz Wax Bar in Toronto know firsthand about RiRi loving a little waxing painfulness! RiRi came in for a Brazilian wax one day and told them that she didn’t want any numbing cream, because she loves the pain the experience gives her!
Now, to be honest, I’ve never had a brazilian (TMI? Sorry, lovahs!) but that numbing cream is a standard in the process. Riri, however, refused this part of the waxing, saying, “no way, I love the pain,” Rihanna tells the esthetician. “It feels good to me.”
On top of that, she never made a peep during her full bikini wax. The salon staff says the walls are very thin, so they could tell Rihanna was actually enjoying herself. “She was singing and humming songs all through the treatment,” says the source. “None of us could stop laughing.”
Oh, RiRi. You’re an odd bird, aren’t you?

Bethenny Frankel was spotted in Miami over the weekend, relaxing with her 2-year-old daughter, Bryn!
Bethenny was in need of a break. The entrepreneur and her estranged husband Jason Hoppy,41, went face to face in court on Friday, to discuss financial disclosure with their attorneys. According to E! the couple didn’t even acknowledge each other during the meeting.
The Bravo star announced the end of her two-year marriage in December 2012, then filed for divorce in January. Three weeks later, Hoppy counter-filed with aggressive papers requesting primary custody of Bryn, child support, medical and dental expenses, and exclusive use of their Manhattan loft.
“I have to say, divorce is the most difficult thing you could ever go through in your entire life,” she told Good Day New York recently of the split. “I never heard how excruciating it is.”
Gotta hand it to her, she’s looking amazing in that bikini! Hard to believe she’s 42!
LOTS MORE PICTURES – INCLUDING BRYN’S CUTE SWIMSUIT – AFTER THE JUMP! (more…)

Tori Spelling has spent the past several years being a baby-making machine! After the surprise pregnancy of her son, Finn, last August, “The last thing on my mind was getting my body back.” The 39-year-old reality star gained 30 pounds during her pregnancy, mostly due to being bed rest with severe placenta previa.
Having fully recovered (Spelling also underwent emergency surgery three weeks post-birth), the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star gradually dropped the baby weight — plus 15 additional pounds accrued over the past couple years. Now 115 pounds, the 5-foot-6 star (who shares her brood of four with husband Dean McDermott) shows off the astounding resulting results in a sexy bikini (and heels!) as she holds Finn, with daughter Hattie, 18, at her side, in the new issue of Us.
“I feel like I took off the weight safely, and I’m totally happy here,” Spelling reveals to Us. One astounding fact: Despite her incredibly flat, toned midsection, Spelling can’t do situps or lunges for at least a year following her surgery. “I think my stomach went back pretty well!” she tells Us.
She looks amazing! Hard to believe she’s had four children!!
