Surprise, Surprise, Melania Trump Has Some Dirt.

Uh oh.

Earlier this week, word broke that our (hopefully not) next first Lady Melania Trump posed nude in a photo spread for a French adult magazine in 1995. And like most potential scandals, now the shoot has some back and resurfaced, more than two decades later. So it goes in politics, right?

The newspaper published several rare pics of the Slovenian native, now 46, on Sunday, July 31, that show her wearing nothing but high heels at age 25 during a photo shoot in Manhattan with French photographer Alé de Basseville. The headline on the shocking front page of the Post reads: “The Ogle Office.”

“Melania was super great and a fantastic personality and she was very kind with me,” de Basseville told the paper. He also noted that the former model — who was then known by the moniker Melania K. — “never once” felt uncomfortable posing for the nude shots.

The images were originally published in the January 1996 issue of Max, a now-defunct men’s magazine, but have not surfaced online until now.

“I was quite surprised when I saw the pictures because it was … a racier shoot than I expected,” an unidentified fashion industry insider who was at the 1995 photo shoot told the Post on Sunday. “But Melania seemed very comfortable with the whole thing, and she was very professional.”

The pictures were taken almost a decade before Mel married Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, and while I don’t think it’s wrong that she took the pictures, it is funny how “being herself” is okay, nay, celebrated.

Donald, 70, told the Post on Sunday, “Melania was one of the most successful models and she did many photo shoots, including for covers and major magazines. This was a picture taken for a European magazine prior to my knowing Melania. In Europe, pictures like this are very fashionable and common.”

Okay, Donald. NOW you’re being sensible when it comes to YOUR camp.

Lena Dunham Loves Looking At, Defending Kim Kardashian’s Nude Selfies

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards -Arrivals-in Los Angeles

There’s a lot of Kim Kardashian #belfie hate, but don’t count Lena Dunham as one of the haters!

Girl is quick to jump on board with having women do what they wanna do and be who they wanna be, so it’s no wonder that the Girls star is all about Kim doing her thing.

“I love the Kardashians – I love to look at them,” Dunham says in an exclusive clip from the Power Women Breakfast series hosted by TheWrap where she talked about her role as an activist. “I’m all about it.”

“Every version of being female and feeling powerful is f—ing great with me,” Dunham says. “I don’t have a problem with it.”

The Girls star and creator says people shouldn’t be so quick to judge.

“I have no interest in, like, getting on a soapbox and making decisions about what should make other women feel beautiful or feel healthy or feel strong,” said Dunham.”I think that’s a big part of the problem with the feminist dialogue on the internet right now is like, why are we screaming at each other?” Dunham, who recently turned 30, says of the backlash Kim Kardashian faced when she posted a nude photo celebrating her body.

“I don’t think there are important conversations to be had about, like whether Kim Kardashian’s nude selfie is like negatively affecting me or my child,” Dunham adds.

True- Kim Kardashian’s nude selfie isn’t really affecting anyone…or is it? I would hate to grow up in a world inundated with photoshopped nude selfies to compare myself to. So in a way, I think it does affect girls. But instead, I think we should give them new and different images to look up to, not shame the Kim Kardashians of the world.

What do YOU think about Kim Kardashian’s belfies? Love them? Hate them? WEIGH IN BELOW!

Kim Kardashian Respects Her Haters

Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 12.30.32 PM

Interesting, coherent interview with Kim Kardashian!

As everybody knows, girl caused a commotion when she published a nude selfie on her social media. She actually put black bars over her business, so you know, class. Though I’m pretty exhausted even thinking about this anymore, lots of people hated on her and Kim made the argument that she’s a feminist and she should be able to do whatever she wants as long as she doesn’t hurt anyone, saying she was empowered by her nude selfies and that’s that.

Well, Kim is still talking about it, and chatted with the Recode Decode podcast on Monday about her second breaking of the internet:

She still doesn’t get why that selfie was such a BFD: “When I posted this photo and I had blonde hair and I put the two censor bars, I truly was baffled when people still cared and the response that people gave. They have seen me naked 500 times!”

So why was it a BFD? “Some people were outraged because I am a mom, some people were so supportive […] I just think it looks good, I am really not trying to cause a reaction… My personality has never been, ‘I’m such a feminist and follow me and be naked!..’ If you are conservative and that’s how you are comfortable, more power to you. I respect you. You don’t have to look at what I do.”

She actually thinks she’s more discreet these days: “Pre-marriage, pre-babies, the answer would have been everything was shareable. After, I would say I keep a good 30 percent to myself.”

She doesn’t mind how she’s portrayed in the media: “I don’t have a problem with people reporting on things, except for when it’s not accurate. I’m so open. There are so many ways to get to me to find out if it’s accurate or not… Old journalism used to be so accurate, and it’s just not like that anymore […] that’s what I love about social media. Now the journalist doesn’t have the final say. If you want to, you can refute what’s being said about you that’s not true and clarify it.”

This is what I never understood: this behavior is NOT NEW FROM KIM. This is her STATUS QUO. So why’s everyone’s panties in a bunch about it? She’s never said that women should be more like her, or that people should post their own nude selfies. It’s everyone else that’s putting this kind of behavior on a pedestal/in the dumps/generally up for examination. And I dunno, I’m over it.

Kim Kardashian Promises “Nude Selfies Till I Die.”

Screen Shot 2016-05-17 at 9.06.21 AM
It’s a rule that Webby Awards acceptance speeches can only be five words long, and Kim Kardashian made her five COUNT.

The reality star was honored with the first-ever Break the Internet award at Monday’s bash, hosted by Nick Offerman, and she said upon acceptance: “Nude selfies until I die.”APT, KIM. APT!

The selfie queen wore a black Vivienne Westwood and was pretty much the only noteworthy news of the event, and you gotta say- you KNOW her win upset Chloe Grace Moretz.  Kardashian also later revealed on Snapchat that she opted out of wearing no false lashes, hair extensions, lipstick or jewelry because her makeup artist,”Mario [Dedivanovic] was lazy.”

Hey, it’s the Webbies. You don’t have to put yourself out! Gotta prep for a lifetime of nude selfies…
