‘They even hate my imperfections,’ scoffs Betty Kyallo

Getting trolled is not a party you want to be invited to. Our celebrities have been trolled and cyber bullied and lived to tell tales.

Betty Kyallo revealed recently how mean netizens were to her. Chatting with Lillian Muli, Betty encouraged the Citizen news anchor after she was a victim of hateful trolls.

Lillian Muli posted on her Instagram:

“For all you idle, bored hating types who feed off negative vibe you spew about others in your shady closed platforms you don’t even know the people you talk about and you never will! You’ve only seen them on magazines or TV or heard them on Radio and you claim you know them. You are a fan in denial. Work on your insecurities first it takes a very emotionally unstable person to spread hateful lies. But then again there is no publicity that is bad publicity…y’all just mad at yourselves…For real though get Help; brands pay to get advertised you on the other hand are so philanthropic you advertise them free of Charge; so you make the brand popular and where does that leave you?” Lilian shot back.

Betty chimed in saying, “Love it babe. That’s the truth.”

The KTN news reader added,

“Kwanza juzi they were discussing how dark my armpit it is. I was like my armpit is subject for a discussion. They even have a problem with my imperfections that I don’t worry about. I love it. As they were Love. Waendelee.”

Lillian responded,

“Honey, you are a star keep shining bright no one can touch a star.”

Lillian wrote that the reason she stands up against trolls is because , “I don’t pay attention to haters dear I just don’t want a generation of young girls and boys growing up to become spiteful people.”

Taylor Swift warned by cops after obsessed fan tells them he’s her ‘boyfriend’, needs gun to protect her

She’s had more than her fair share of obsessed fans.

Now a 58-year-old man is claiming he’s Taylor Swift’s boyfriend and needs a gun to protect her, TMZ reported on Sunday

New Hampshire law enforcement sources told the website the man was at the station for voluntary questioning on an unrelated case when he bragged he was the singer’s significant other.

The police say he even showed them texts with a ‘Taylor Swift’ as the recipient.

They got suspicious when he asked how many states he could drive through with a concealed carry weapons permit.

He also reportedly told them he wanted a gun to protect the 28-year-old pop star in Africa. It’s unclear why he thinks she will be there.

However, she is due to start her tour in support of her new album, Reputation, on May 28 in Glendale, Los Angeles and it will take in Canada, the UK, Ireland and Australia before wrapping on November 9 in Auckland, New Zealand.

The cops didn’t detain the man because, as they explained to TMZ, simply saying you want a gun to protect someone is not a crime.

However, the source told the website that the cops have tried to contact Taylor’s team to warn her.

It’s not the first time the Look What You Made Me Do singer has had to deal with an obsessed fan.

Mohammed Jaffar, 29, was committed to a state psychiatric facility in September by the Manhattan Supreme Court after he broke into the megastar’s NYC apartment building in February and called her management 60 times in a two-week period.

About a week later, he came back two days in a row to ring her doorbell and continued to violate orders to stay away from Taylor until his March 6 arrest.

Rich Kids, One Side: Anerlisa Muigai’s 30th Birthday Presents Can Pay For School Fees For 40 Form One Students

Anerlisa Muigai has never shied away from showering her social media pages with some of the best things she has in her life, and her fans are always there to drool over her expensive lifestyle. One can’t blame her considering she’s the daughter of one of the richest women in Kenya.

anerlisa 1

Well, last week Anerlisa turned thirty, the number that most ladies are always afraid of including herself; she previously confessed that she was afraid of turning thirty.

Her family did not waste time as they spoilt her with some of the most expensive gifts that we only see international celebrities rock. From shoes to jewelery, Anerlisa was gifted the best of the best, with shoes that cost over 70,000 shillings.

Even without her family giving her these fine things, she’s a hard working lady and can easily afford to spoil herself, but if the family are in a position to give her such gifts, why not.

ANERLISA

One of the shoes she was gifted were Loriblu Bijoux jewel shoes that cost 625 euros, that’s approximately 78,000 shillings.

Other gifts that she got were Salvatore Ferragamo heels, a Rolex watch, jewelery, a Chanel handbag and a book.

While many of us are crying Njaanuary, Anerlisa’s family can afford items worth your rent for two years.

Check out photos of the gifts below;

‘I thought, ‘it’s me, it’s who I am and I love my body. So I’m just going to post it

Risper Faith’s Husband Responds To Claims That He Was Cheating!

Risper Faith is one socialite who has been able to tie down a man into long-term matrimony.

The man in this instance is called Brian and he “put a ring on it” when they had a traditional ceremony a few months back.

And paid a whooping Ksh 2.5 Million in dowry last year, October.

But the question that has popped up recently is whether Lady Risper’s man is a man of virtue or is he a philanderer? Why would I ask this?

Well, a lady called Evon Amollo released some screenshots that showed that Brian may be a mhanyanji.

This obviously opened a can of worms as another socialite called Pendo claimed that he had also tried to hit on her.

Risper Faith and Brayo

This seems to be a pattern with Mr. Risper Faith, the socialites are his bread and butter.

From marrying a socialite to cheating with other socialites! Hmmm!? But he has come out to deny the claim by posting an emphatic endorsement of his marriage credentials to his followers.

The caption which includes the words:

“Happy Wife, Happy Life.”

Below is the photo that came with the caption:

Selena Gomez Mother not happy with daughter reuniting with Bieber

Selena Gomez’s mom has opened up about her famous daughter’s love life.

In an interview with Gossip Cop, Mandy Teefey, 41, has said that while she’s ‘not happy’ about her 25-year-old daughter rekindling her romance with Justin Bieber, 23, ‘Selena can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe and healthy.’

The 13 Reasons Why producer also admitted she hasn’t spoken to the Sorry singer in ‘years’, even via text, despite her daughter having had a kidney transplant last summer.

She told Gossip Cop: ‘Selena is an adult and can make her own choices.’

Teefey also debunked claims that she’s no longer acting as her daughter’s manager because of ongoing tensions between herself, Selena and Selena’s stepfather Brian Teefey, who also managed the Wolves songstress’ career.

selena gomez

‘We never expected to manage her her whole life,’ she said of giving up the role in 2014.

‘We lost family time because the only time we saw her, we talked business.’

It has been widely reported that Mandy was ‘upset’ after she rekindled her romance with pop sensation Justin Bieber.

But Selena Gomez and her momager Mandy Teefey have allegedly had a ‘strained’ relationship for over three years after they parted ways as manager and client.

Justin Bieber And Selena Gomez Seek Therapy Over Justin’s Ex Hailey Baldwin

As the singer bounced back with a new executive team in 2014, the breakdown of the pair’s professional relationship ’caused a major rift’ between the mother and daughter, an insider told E! News

Despite eventually reconnecting, this report came shortly after the Bad Liar songstress and her former manager had a ‘heated conversation’ over on/off beau Justin Bieber, which led to a voluntary ‘welfare’ check-up.

According to TMZ, Selena’s family will ‘never forgive him or accept [Justin]’ for their complicated split in 2014.

A source told the website that Mandy was taken to a welfare center in Los Angeles for a health check ‘at a family member’s request.’

justin bieber

Following his split from Sofia Richie and her separation from The Weeknd, the pair began to meet up again in November.

Justin and Selena started dating as teenagers in 2011 and spent three years in an on and off relationship.

They initially blamed work schedules for their first split in November 2012 and they briefly reconciled in April 2013, much to fans’ delight.

Conversely, Justin’s mother Pattie Mallette is believed to be very on board with the reconciliation.

She lavished the Bad Liar songstress, 25, with words of praise when she spoke with People.

‘If he loves her I love her,’ Patti explained. ‘And I’ve met her and we have a special bond so I think she’s precious.’

Spending too much time seated can cause diabetes and heart disease

Spending too much time sitting down builds fat around the body’s organs and increases the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

A study found people who spent a large amount of time sitting down had higher levels of visceral and total abdominal fat.

Visceral fat is unseen and wrapped around the liver, pancreas and kidneys.

Carrying a high amount is known to be associated with insulin resistance – the driving factor for type 2 diabetes, a preventable condition.

Many of us are chained to our desk for work and the research found the most harmful effect was on those who do not work out in their spare time.

10 Commandments Every Sane, Healthy Girlfriend Should Follow

The findings are worrying given that most of us now spend more time sitting than retired pensioners, a previous study found.

The new research suggests that while we may not be able to escape being chained to our desks for hours, meeting weekly activity guidelines can make a difference in reducing our risk of preventable disease.

Lead author of the latest study, Dr Joe Henson at the University of Leicester, said: ‘We know that spending long periods of time sedentary is unhealthy and a risk factor for chronic illnesses, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

‘Likewise, the amount of fat deposited around our internal organs may also predispose us to these diseases.’

5 Best Fruits for Healthy Skin

DO YOU HAVE ‘STRESS BELLY’? EXPERT REVEALS WHY YOU CAN’T SHIFT THE WEIGHT OFF YOUR TUM

Does the rest of your body seems to be shaping up, but nothing seems to work to shift that pesky fat around your middle? Then your stressful lifestyle maybe to blame.

That’s according to health expert Jackie Wicks, co-author of new book Cheats & Eats: Lifestyle Programme.

When cortisol – the so-called stress hormone – is too high for too long, it can increase the amount of fat that’s stored on your stomach, she explained.

Also called visceral fat, this is a form of gel-like fat that’s wrapped around major organs, including the liver, pancreas and kidneys. This type is particularly nasty, being linked to increased risk of cancer, heart disease, and stroke.
