We have nothing but prayers, pride, and love for Michelle Williams. It takes a strong person to realize they need help and a wiser one to understand that mental illness is a serious issue.

When we have people who would rather commit suicide than seek professional help we really need to uplift the ones who choose to stay, fight, and live. God bless you Michelle, we love ya honey!

“We Are All Self-Made…” Kim K (@kimkardashian) Defends Kylie Jenner, After Forbes Backlash!

It looks like it is “Big Sister to the rescue” in the “Kardashian Kamp,” as Kim is stepping up to defend her youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, after her controversial cover story in Forbes Magazine.
As you recall, Kylie is set to become the youngest billionaire in history, being worth nearly 900 million dollars thanks to her make up and cosmetic lines. No one denies her success, but many argue that she is not a self-made billionaire having come from an already wealthy family and being given a head start thanks to social media and reality television from a rather young age. Kim not only states Kylie is self-made, but also expresses she does not understand the backlash.

on’t mess with Kim Kardashian West’s siblings.

The mother of three, 37, came to her little sister Kylie Jenner’s defense after the latter came under fire for her Forbes cover in which she was called “the youngest-ever self-made billionaire” at 20-years-old.

Kardashian West recently told Refinery29 she “really didn’t get” the backlash“because she is ‘self-made,’ ” explaining that she was proud of the creative way in which her sister took “an insecurity of her and [found] out how to make a really successful business off of it,” referring to Jenner’s lips.

“We are all ‘self-made,’” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star said. “What, because we came from a family that has had success? To me, that doesn’t really make sense… I know so many people like that [who] haven’t turned out to be as successful as Kylie. If anything, I’ve seen the complete opposite.”

Kardashian West added, “Me, Kylie, not one [of the KarJenner siblings] has ever depended on our parents for anything besides advice.”

Many, including us, would beg to differ about Kim’s last statement. When you grow up with parents like Robert Kardashian, Sr. and Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn), a celebrity lawyer and Olympian, respectively; and managed by Kris Jenner you have virtually unlimited resources. We are not hating on Kylie’s success by any means, however, we do feel her being described as “self-made” is not only a fallacy–IT’S A REACH!

Just hours before her son took his own life, Tina attended Giorgio Armani Privé Haute Couture fashion show in Paris, France, as part of the Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week.

The iconic singer has lived in Europe since 1995 with her German record-executive husband Erwin Bach. In 2013, she relinquished her American citizenship.

Tina has been open about the abuse she suffered at the hands of Craig’s adoptive father, Ike, who died in 2007.

In May 2005, Tina revealed to Oprah that it particularly took a toll on Craig, who “was a very emotional kid.”

There are few pains greater than the loss of a child. We are sending our prayers and thoughts to Tina Turner during this tragic time. As always we encourage each of you to do your part. If you, or someone you know is contemplating suicide, please alert the proper authorities and/or call 1-800-273-8255, the American National Suicide Prevention Hotline.
