KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS VISIT DUBAI

Image
"I just get scared."


Kim Kardashian panics on Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians while shopping in Dubai. On the episode, Kim travels to Dubai to make her first public appearance since her terrifying Paris attack.


She hadn't been shopping in months, so Kim wanted to check out the stores in Dubai. But she's still recovering from the traumatic experience, so when a large crowd starts to form around the store she's shopping at, she starts to get nervous.


"Are you not nervous about that crowd?" Kim's friend and hairstylist Jen Atkin asks her in the clip above.


"Yeah," Kim says, before explaining, "This is just kind of what I was kind of afraid of, is just this feeling of panic."


Kim continues, "With so many people gathering and then they start social media like, 'Kim's at the mall, she's here.' And then other people will know exactly where I'm at. It gives me such anxiety."

So what do…

BROOKLYN'S DUMBO LANDMARK CLOCK TOWER SOLD

Image
Famous for its giant window clocks, fifty-foot ceiling and a techno ghost, Esquire’s 2011 flamboyant Bachelor Pad of the Year has finally sold. Located in Brooklyn’s Dumbo district, the 1914 landmark Clock Tower building is close to all the upscale and trendy restaurants, indie music performances, gallery shows and shops run by local artisans. It’s an actual clock tower; the first thing you see across the space when you enter is a huge 14-foot, clock-face window. There are four of these giant clocks, all electronically synchronized to show exactly the same time. Through these and other large windows are postcard views from the Hudson River and Statue of Liberty to Manhattan.


Also something a bit different, in case the big clock faces were not enough, was Charlotte - a life-sized digital lady ghost who was on duty 24/7. She could be seen sitting at the bar, swimming through the atrium and walking along the walls of the lounge. When Esquire moved out, the condominium was put up for sal…

INSIDE WAR BETWEEN ANGELINA JOLIE & BRAD PITT

Image
E! NEWS -- When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie boarded a flight from Nice to Los Angeles last September, neither of them could have realized the trip would mark the beginning of one of the nastiest splits in Hollywood history.
We now know the fated journey, during which Brad got into a disagreement with his 15-year-old son Maddox, would lead to an explosive FBI investigation into what really happened on the plane.
Less than a year earlier the couple had posed together on the red carpet while promoting their latest movie together, By the Sea—ironically a film about the breakdown of a marriage. Despite the depressing subject matter, Brad and Angelina acted like two people deeply in love as they held hands and looked adoringly into one another's eyes while photographers joyfully snapped away.
Their romance had a rocky beginning, due to the perceived overlap with Brad's previous marriage to Jennifer Aniston. Yet it didn't take long for Brangelina to become the hottest couple in …

STAR WARS LUKE SKYWALKER'S "JEDI MUST END"

Image
STAR WARS TEASER


The first teaser for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" dropped and the thing that stuck out for fans was Luke Skywalker's quote at the end that the "Jedi must end."


In the first clip from the movie, which hits theaters in December, Daisy Ridley's Rey has tracked down Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill, and the thought at the end of 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is that he would train this young character in the ways of the force.

ABC News correspondent Paula Faris interviewed the cast of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” while at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando. Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, says 'it's possible' Luke goes to the dark side in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'.




The clip looks to open that way, with Rey handling a lightsaber and listening to Luke's guidance, but there's that shocking quote at the end from Luke, one of the most iconic Jedi in history.
