NEW YORK CITY MAYOR BILL DE BLASIO DEFENDS ATTACKS ON JOE BIDEN ON THE VIEW

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio
2020 Hopeful and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio joins the table to defend his attack on Joe Biden at the Democratic Debates
On Joe Biden and former President Obama attacks:
"I was not attacking Obama. Come on, let's get real. It's questioning whether those deportations made sense and asking a vice president to explain his role in it. Do you think these questions will not come up later?" de Blasio said. "I was challenging Biden because I want to hear him say, 'Here's what I did,' 'Here's what I stand for,' because whoever is going to be the Democratic nominee has to be able to do that."
On public arguments within the Democratic party:
"If we can have this discussion in our family -- and yeah it's a family that happens to be televised -- we then can figure out who we are as Democrats and go into battle ready to win," de Blasio said.
On his low approval ratings: 
"I represent 8.6 mil…

KIM KARDASHIAN SAY'S MET GALA NERVE-WRACKING AS HER WEDDING

Keeping Up With the Kardashians
In this clip from Keeping Up With the Kardashians' upcoming 17th season, Kim Kardashian finds herself getting anxious while preparing for the 2019 Met Gala. Despite having gone to the fashionable event several times before, Kanye West's wife feels the pressure as she's wearing custom Thierry Mugler.
"This is probably as nerve-wracking as my wedding. I don't know why I get so nervous for the Met," Kim shares with her glam squad. "Just 'cause there's pictures from every single angle."
Since the French designer hasn't designed for the label in almost 20 years, it's understandable that the KKW Beauty boss is eager to do the look justice.
"It's a huge responsibility for me because he, I'm sure after not designing for 20 years, wants it to be something magical and special and new," the Kardashian-West matriarch notes in a confessional. "I just want it to be perfect."
