Helen Mirren's Secret to Staying Bikini Fit: A 12-Minute Military Workout

                      Helen Mirren, who is 68, on vacation in Hawaii. (Splash News)
It's no secret that Helen Mirren has a hot bod, but how she stays trim certainly is.
The Queenactress, who turns 69 on Saturday, revealed that when she needs to tighten up her waistline she actually follows a Royal Canadian Air Force exercise plan... from the 1950s!
"I'm not very fit at all actually. Just this morning I started my exercises, which I haven’t been doing for months, maybe years. I do a thing that leads me into exercise. It is the Royal Canadian Air Force exercise plan; it is 12 minutes and they have charts you follow… Each day, you have to do the exercises within the 12 minutes and until you can, you can’t move up," Mirren recently told reporters, according to her publicist.
"It is the exercise I have done off and on my whole life. It just very gently gets you fit. Two weeks of doing that and you think: 'Yeah, I could go to the gym now.'"
The regimen, which was designed by physician Bill Orban in the late 1950s, includes 10 basic exercises for women that are intended to work all your muscle groups in a short amount of time. It includes moves like knee raises, arm circling, push-ups, sit-ups, chest raises, leg raises, and running and hopping. The workout doesn't require any equipment, which makes it ideal for jetsetting stars like Mirren.
Yes, the trendy dame was well ahead of the bootcamp craze that has been popping up in gyms worldwide over the past year.
And clearly all the hopping and leg raises are paying off for the British stunner. In 2008, Mirren was snapped wearing a red bikini while she was on vacation in Italy. The photo, which she has called just a "flattering angle," shows off her impressive physique for a woman of her age. In the photo, you can see her taut tummy, trim arms, and overall amazing body.
"That photograph will haunt me for the rest of my life," the Oscar winner told the Telegraph of the infamous photo that won her accolades like "Body of the Year."
Whether or not she'll own up to her svelte figure or not, if this 1950s Royal Canadian Air Force exercise plan is what is doing the trick, sign us up!

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Share Baby North's First Steps With The World

North West, who recently turned one, took her first steps, according to an Instagram pic Kim posted today.
How cute! North West, the daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, took her first steps today!
And, the reality star posted a pic on Instagram so we all get to share in the milestone!
The star captioned the adorable pic, "Our baby girl finished one week of swimming lessons today then took her 1st steps right when she got out of the pool!!!! Mommy & Daddy are so proud of you!!!!"
Hopefully North appreciates all the love, because it gets harder and harder to make someone four-exclamation-marks proud.
Apparently, North West is also already in swimming lessons? Good for her. Stay healthy!
North West was born June 15, 2013, and for her 1st birthday last month her parents threw her a 'Kidchella' party, which is a Coachella-like music festival for kids. It included a bouncy castle, a Ferris wheel, face-painting stations and karaoke.

Peaches Geldof Died of Heroin Overdose, Coroner Rules

What authorities suspected has been confirmed: Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose. 

During an inquest in Kent, pathologist Peter Jerreat said that the daughter of British rocker Bob Geldof had puncture wounds on her elbows, wrists, and thumbs, and also noted that traces of codeine, methadone, and morphine were found in her system, reports the BBC. According to Jerreat, the levels of heroin in her body were in the "fatal range." 

The 25-year-old socialite and TV presenter's body was discovered on April 7 in her home in southeast England. Police discovered 6.9 grams of heroin in her home, and indicated at the time that there was no sign of suicide or foul play.

During the hearing it was revealed that the mother-of-two had struggled with addiction to heroin in the past and had been taking the substitute drug methadone for over two years. Though the treatment helped for a while, she relapsed in February, her husband, S.C.U.M. rocker Thomas Cohen, said. The musician also noted that Geldof had been taking weekly drug tests for the last two years.
It was Cohen who first discovered her, already deceased, on the bed in a guestroom of their home after he had spent a weekend away with their eldest son.
"I found her in the spare bedroom," Cohen explained at the inquest. "We both used it when the kids were sleeping." He also added that he now suspects his wife had been lying to him about her weekly drug tests being clean.
This now appears to be a sad case of history repeating, as Geldof's mother, Paula Yates, died of a heroin overdose in September 2000, when Peaches was just 11. Geldof leaves behind her husband and two young sons, Astala, 2, and Phaedra, 1.
Shortly after her death, Cohen remembered Peaches as his "beloved wife" and promised to bring up their sons "with their mother in their hearts every day." Hopefully now they can put this tragedy to rest and begin moving forward.

Taylor Swift Gives Boy Advice to a Young Fan

              Taylor Swift Gives Boy Advice to a Young Fan 

If she ever steps away from her music career, Taylor Swift has a future as an advice columnist.
A fan named Hannah reached out to Swift on Instagram asking the superstar for advice on how to deal with her unrequited feelings for a guy she's known for years.
Hannah, whose name on Instagram is SherbetSwift, describes her love interest as "a guy who's sweet and charming and makes me laugh. A guy who said sorry for eating in front of me after finding out I had to skip breakfast…A guy who was my first best friend." It turns out this guy has a girlfriend, whom Hannah describes as "pretty" and "nice" with an "amazing figure."
"@taylorswift can you give me some advice maybe," she wrote. "I love you."
In response, Swift composed a lengthy note to Hannah, telling her that true love isn't just "the kind that lasts forever or is fully realized."
"I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. It's just as crushing and just as thrilling," she wrote. "No matter what happens in this situation, I want you to remember that what you are doing is selfless and beautiful and kind. .... Someday you'll find someone who loves you in that exact same way."
Hannah was obviously touched.
"You have no idea how much this means to me, thank you. You understand and that means so much," she wrote. "I feel like you're the big sister I don't have. Thank you, I really did need to hear that from you."

Paul Hogan's Divorce Is Dundee

Perhaps Paul Hogan will mark his divorce by throwing a few more shrimp on the barbie.
A California judge has finalized Hogan's divorce from wife Linda Kozlowski and the assets have been divvied up.
Per the settlement, Hogan, 74, retains the rights to the character "Crocodile Dundee," the role that made him famous, as well as ownership of the film company that produced the huge original film (1986) and its two sequels, Crocodile Dundee II (1988) and Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles (2001).
He also retains ownership of their house in Venice, California, along with his 2010 Jeep Liberty, his personal jewelry, and his pension plans. Paul's current worth is estimated at $20 million, although the divorce settlement states that neither party currently has any earnings of consequence.
However, Linda, 56, gets nearly $5.8 million dollars and is allowed to continue living in the Venice house until 2018 or until she remarries, whichever comes first. She also has the option to buy the house at its purchase price of $1.59 million. She also gets to keep her personal jewelry, artwork, and her 2013 Mini Cooper.
The resolution means Hogan could relaunch his Crocodile Dundee character, an idea he's toyed with in the past.
The ex-couple will share joint custody of their son Chance, 15. Although neither party will pay child support, Paul will be responsible for paying his school tuition and medical expenses.
Hogan and Kozlowski met when she portrayed his love interest, Sue Charlton, in the first Dundee film. She reprised her character alongside him in both sequels. They've been married since 1990.
She filed for divorce in October, citing "irreconcilable differences." Speculation about relationship turmoil first surfaced in September when they sold their Malibu mansion to Avengers star Chris Hemsworth.
This is Paul's third divorce. He divorced his first wife, Noelene Edwards, twice — the second one coming after Hogan allegedly cheated with Kozlowski.

The Date is Set: Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade Are Getting Married on ..

                                       Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade
It's official! Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union will get married on August 30th in Miami, Florida. TMZ reports that the future Mr. and Mrs. Wade sent out their invitations, but are still leaving guests in the dark when it comes to the rest of their wedding details.

The invitation features elegant black typography and is printed on wood. They've requested male guests dress in formal black and women in formal white. Though we're not positive, we've got a sneaking suspicion Union might choose a nontraditional, colorful wedding dress for her big day - with her guests in black and white, she'll probably want to stand out with a pop of color!
Another fact of note: the time. The couple's invitation states the wedding starts at 10:30 PM and guests will first report to a hotel near Miami shortly before 10 PM. They'll then be chartered by bus to the top-secret reception venue, which Wade and Union estimate to be 45 to 50 minutes south of South Beach.
There's a reason behind all of this extra time allotment - all guests will be screened through tight security before the ceremony and the reception. (Good luck, wedding crashers.) Not only will guests have to pass a security screening, but they're also required to present a photo ID prior to entry.
And if you were hoping to see inside wedding details from Wade and Union's nuptials, we've got some bad news. The pair also used their invite to let guests know that cell phones and personal cameras won't be permitted at their reception.
From what it sounds like, Wade and Union are making every effort to host a completely private and intimate event despite their celebrity status - a truly commendable feat, but we'll be interested to see if they can pull it off.

Surprise! Naya Rivera Marries Ryan Dorsey in Mexico

Glee star Naya Rivera is a married woman.
The 27-year-old actress swapped "I do's" with actor Ryan Dorsey in an intimate, beachside ceremony Saturday in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in front of a small gathering of family.
"We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife," the pair told People. "Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for."
The bride wore a lace, long-sleeved Monique Lhullier gown and styled her hair down in curls with a jeweled headpiece. For his part, the groom suited up in Dolce & Gabbana. The duo exchanged Neil Lane rings.

The fast-tracked wedding was a surprise. It wasn't until earlier this week that the two were even rumored to be dating after being spotted south of the border. The happy couple reportedly met four years ago in Los Angeles and took their friendship to the next level after Riveradramatically ended her engagement to Big Sean in April.
The pair certainly has one thing in common: Their love for acting. Dorsey, who is still a relative unknown, recently wrapped Blood Father, where he stars opposite Mel Gibson and William H. Macy. Rivera recently left Glee after rumors swirled that she had been fired from the hit show. 
The lovebirds seem to be enjoying marriage so far and shared photos from, what now looks like their honeymoon, of a romantic horseback ride down the beach.

Selena Gomez Turns 22 With Bikini-Filled Girls Trip With Cara Delevingne

Selena Gomez is having the best birthday ever.
Selena Gomez left all the boy drama at home for her 22nd birthday, celebrating on a yacht in St. Tropez with her girls, including model Cara Delevingne.
The Come & Get It singer's gal pals took to Instagram to document their relaxing getaway, which included parasailing, tanning and "jumping for joy fully clothed."
And despite rumors of a strained friendship with Taylor Swift, the 22singer sent out a special Instagram shout out, writing, "Usually this S represents 'Swift' but today I'm wearing it because SELENA IS 22!!!!"
Swift has recently been palling around with her own model bestie/workout bud -- Karlie Kloss -- in New York City.
One person notably absent from the festivities?
Selena's on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber, who spent the weekend dealing with the Beverly Hills Police Department.

New Couple Alert? Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed Spend the Weekend Together

Things might be heating up between two vampires. Twilight star Nikki Reed and Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder were spotted engaging in a little PDA at the farmers' market yesterday (Sunday), and it appears the two may have even spent the whole weekend together.

Nikki, 26, who filed for divorce from husband Paul McDonald back in May, and Ian, 35, went for a jog on Saturday (July 19th) before Nikki attended the Splendid Tanktastic event at The Grove shopping center in Los Angeles later in the day. Ian and Nikki were then photographed early Sunday morning smiling, sampling food and sneaking in a few snuggles.

Ian dated his Vampire co-star Nina Dobrev for two years before the two reportedly split last May. In Hollywood-is-a-really-small-place-when-you're-single news, Nina and Nikki are apparently friendly, so one wonders how the 25-year-old Let's Be Cops actress feels about this possible new relationship.

Do you think Ian and Nikki make a good couple?

To see more pics of the two looking very couple-y over the weekend, check out the gallery above.

Swimwear on Miami Beach runway goes sporty chic

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Surf's up next summer.
From rash guards to zipper-brief bottoms, sporty-chic looks made waves on the runway in Miami Beach for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, which celebrated its 10th year with more than a dozen shows ending Monday. The shows previewed summer 2015 swimwear.
"Sport luxe is making a big impact into swimwear," said Sue Di Chio, creative director of Suboo. She said customers are looking for more than triangle bikinis, and sportswear design "lends itself a lot to swimwear."
Prints and bright colors also will return next year, along with mesh, high-waist bottoms and laser-cut designs.
Dolores Cortes cited a mix of tribal and contemporary inspiration with laminated fabrics, glass beads and braid structures. Black-and-white bikinis were paired with oversized gold-plated bracelets and earrings with 3-D animal details. Other designs included multi-colored maillots with open backs and sides; a one-piece tube-top in a textured white design and zipper front; and a gold pantsuit. Showstoppers were bikinis made of tortoise shell.
Party like it's 1999 was the theme of the WILDFOX Swim show, with some models sporting Reebok high-tops and fanny packs. "Wild Thing" was printed on a tank bikini top paired with a bottom that had a paw scratch on the back. A red one-piece read "This Bod's For You" with high-cut sides. The Barbie logo appeared on a soft pink one-piece and a blue terry-cloth bikini that tied in front. Crowd favorites included a pastel-colored one-piece with pink belt and a bikini covered in oversized flowers.
Jeremy and Katinka Somers are the designers behind this Australian label. Prints included hummingbirds intertwined with pineapples in a kaleidoscope grid; mirrored cheetahs in red and blue; the brand's signature big cat print; and maps, sails and palm trees reflecting the designers' travel lifestyle. A cropped rash guard in bright yellow sported a tropical print on the back, racer bikinis and leggings paired with mesh tops. Bikini-clad models even held a live slithering snake. Male models sported trunks in prints.
The Tory Burch swimwear was inspired by the sun-bleached palette of Milton Avery, an American modern painter. Laidback looks included surf shirts, dresses and tunics, and button-down shirts that can be worn over bathing suits. A short-sleeved rash guard included a floral print called "Red Pepper Issy" with short ruffles along the collar. Accessories included oversized marbled sunglasses and perforated leather shoes. Fan favorite: A white leather bag with long fringe.
Inspired by the travels of sisters Kalani and Oleema Miller, MIKOH opened with Tahitian dancers wearing custom pieces from the surf collection made from coated neoprene. There were sleek designs (neoprene maillot with a halter-style top) and new prints (crashing white water, palm trees, a Samoan print) and colors (rich greens and reds, coral, turquoise and neutrals). Bikinis were paired with multi-string and laser-cut bottoms.
A jungle-warrior theme at Mara Hoffman Swim offered bright colors and prints inspired by Guatemala. "The textiles are just incredible," she said. Standouts included a one-piece rash guard swimsuit with a colorful print on the front and black and white checkered print on the sleeves, and a cropped, long-sleeved rash guard paired with high-waist bottoms. Other looks included cut-out one-pieces with intricate beading, and black mesh pieces (bikini and tight knee-length dress) with sunburst texture.
Maaji Swimwear went to the races with looks inspired by horse riding and greyhounds. The models sported racing caps while holding whips. The "Royal Riders" collection included bustier bikini tops printed with plum greyhounds and red gingham; boy-short bottoms printed with fuchsia roses and orange horses; a crop top with cap sleeves for a surfer look printed with pastel envelopes and gray ropes; and a crop rash guard printed with orange horses and blue dots. Short trunks for men included similar prints and colors.
The longest-running show at MBFWSwim is CM Cia.Maritima. "It's a challenge because you have more competitors," designer Benny Rosset said, adding that people used to say "bikini is not fashion," but that's changed. Among the looks: a long-sleeved yellow and pink orchid body suit with side cut-outs; orange sunset print crop top in long sleeves paired with an orange Cozumel print pencil skirt; an orange palm zipper brief bottom (surfer style); and yellow tropical one-piece with an animal print pant, yellow tropical blouse tied around the model's waist, and matching visor.
Inspired by the '80s TV show "Miami Vice," Luli Fama included pastels and neons along with tropical patterns and prints. The line is known for sexy, skimpy bottoms (ruched Brazilian cuts, cheeky bottoms and thongs), which caught the attention of singer LeAnn Rimes. "I like butts and they do a really good butt," she said after the show, which she attended with husband Eddie Cibrian.
From gym to beach: Suboo swimwear included zippers and mesh paneling; rash guards and high-waist bottoms; and bomber jackets not typically seen on swim runways, including a printed jacket outlined in black, and a white mesh jacket.
More high-waist bottoms were seen at 6 Shore Road, with colorful prints and thick side strings. Rash guards also made the runway along with colorful oversized bags, pantsuits and black mesh cover-ups.

Swimwear designer, age 19, debuts in Miami Beach

Swimwear designer, age 19, debuts in Miami Beach
Designer Francesca Aiello, of Frankie's Bikinis, right, walks on the runway with a ................................

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- It was nearly show time as designer Francesca Aiello snapped pictures backstage of models in her latest swimwear designs. This was Frankie's Bikinis' debut show for the 19-year-old designer at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami Beach, but Aiello is a pro when it comes to social media.
"I was nervous at first ... of all the attention. But I'm excited," she said before posting the photos on Instagram and Twitter, where her brand started just a couple years ago and has since taken off.
She is the youngest designer to ever present at the shows in Miami Beach, organizers said.
Aiello (pronounced ah-YELLOW) is a California girl who grew up wearing bikinis in Malibu. With help from her mom, she'd launched the swimwear line by age 17.
"I don't know how to sew, but my mom does and after her first attempt didn't work out, we began our trial and error process of finding the people to help make the right bikini," she said. The pair found a pattern maker and factory in Los Angeles where the pieces are now made.
"They're not stopping me because I'm only 19," Aiello said. "I've always said that it's really important for young girls to know that they shouldn't let their age stop them."
That carefree attitude is present in her (now) third swimwear collection, with bohemian designs and suits in lavender, blue and bright orange.
"I'm always watching the girls on the beach," she said of her inspiration. "I wanted to make suits for every girl."
Her collection fuses the Hawaiian shoreline with southern California style in feminine and flirty pieces with low-cut bottoms and revealing crochet designs. Bikini tops with crisscross backs are ideal for the beach lifestyle and the surfer girl.
Aiello embodied the surfer-chic look as she took to the runway after the show in a white crop top and pants, her long dirty blonde hair bouncing off her perfectly tanned shoulders.
The line can be purchased from online sites like ShopBop and from some boutiques.
Next for the designer: expanding the brand to include clothing that can be worn in places other than the beach — and keeping up those social media posts.
"It's also important for me to share big moments with our followers," she said, "because some of them have watched our company grow and I think it's just as exciting for them as it is for me."

Kourtney and Khloé Hit With Anti-Kardashian Campaign #NODASH in Hamptons

Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian stroll around the Hamptons as more protest stickers pop up 
Hamptonites still aren't ready to accept the Kardashians as locals.
As filming for their latest spinoff Kourtney & Khloé Take the Hamptonscontinues in New York, someone has created protest stickers targeting the famous sisters.
The smiling images of Kourtney and Khloé with the hashtag "#NODASH" over their faces have been popping up all over town, to the delight of many.
Kourtney, 35, and Khloé, 30, have been renting out a 9,000-square-foot, five-bedroom home since May, despite residents protesting their arrival ahead of time. Reportedly brokers would not work with the family for fear of upsetting locals, while many owners flat out refused to rent them their homes.

Undeterred, the sisters eventually found their $14 million mansion — which they (or, more accurately, their E! production) paid around $300,000 for — just in time to open their Dash Hamptons pop-up store in Southampton on June 2. Sill, many were not ready to open their doors or beaches to the sisters without a fight. In fact, they needed to find an abode with a private beach in order to film scenes for the show.
A few weeks later, East Hampton Town trustee Diane McNally was informed that the family was spotted filming on Indian Wells Beach in Amagansett.
The matter was brought up at a town board meeting by resident Joan Tulp who complained she was having “a beautiful and quiet day" until she and her family "were surrounded and our peace shattered by filmmakers and paparazzi accompanying the Kardashians.”
“Who gave the Kardashians permission to film? The trustees should have been notified if they had applied for a permit to film on the beach, and we were not notified," McNally told the New York Post's Page Six. "Filming on our beaches is disruptive. Our residents are entitled to peace and quiet. I suggest that if anyone sees the Kardashians filming on the beach, they should call the police, because they are not legally there.”
While the majority of residents are clearly upset about the Kardashians visit, others are happy that local business has increased during their drama-filled stay.
As for the #NODASH stickers that keep popping up, authorities told that if they anyone is caught defacing public property they'll be cited.
If Page Six is to believed, locals can soon breathe a sigh of relief as Khloé and Kourtney's lease will end on Aug. 18.

Kim Kardashian Says She Doesn't Have "Sympathy" For Struggling Brother Rob Kardashian

Tough love! Kim Kardashian said on the July 20 episode ofKeeping Up With The Kardashians that she doesn't have sympathy for her brother Rob Kardashian, who has been battling depression and weight gain over the past several months.
After Rob, 27, failed to show up at the airport while the family was en route to Thailand, sister Khloe Kardashian was so worried she almost didn't board the plane herself. Kim, however, took a different stance towards her struggling sibling. 
"We've all been here to offer him help and he won't take it, so I don't have sympathy," Kanye West's wife, 33, said to the family at the breakfast table while on their posh vacation. "I think I'm just more of the tough love kind of person," she later went on to tell the camera. "My personality is like, 'All right, you complain, you don't like it, get up and do something about it.'"
Khloe, however, tried to defend her brother, saying, "Rob has deeper issues than just weight," adding he took her split from husband Lamar Odom "hard." 
Rob, himself, took to Twitter back in May to address widespread speculation about his emotional state. After bailing last-minute on Kim's wedding to West in Florence, Rob tweeted: "To the blogs saying I went to fat camp or rehab, LOL … Then why am I still fat u fools?? Y'all must have run out of real news. First, I don't believe in rehab or therapy or anything of that sort and second, I'm a grown man and will work on myself when I choose. I’m aware that I'm fat that def ain't a surprise to me lol… My only therapy will be in the gym, anyways had to say somethingggggggggg."
