Kim Kardashian undergoes laser surgery on her breasts to remove stretch marks

While she has denied having surgery on her famous derriere, it seems Kim Kardashian is still open to other procedures. Kim Kardashian undergoes laser surgery on her breasts to remove stretch marks on Keeping Up With The Kardashians On last night’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim and her BFF Jonathan Cheban visit plactic surgeon Dr. Simon Ourian, complaining about her ‘wrinkly’ hands. But after discovering the laser treatment helps to reduce stretch marks, Kim immediately enquires about getting the procedure done on her breasts. ‘I’m like obsessed with my hands. I think they look really wrinkly. Is there anything to tighten them?’ Kim told the doctor. Kim also informs the doctor that she would like a scar removed from her toe. The star is then seen getting the laser treatment around her cleavage, as she jokes ‘the things you do for beauty’. Meanwhile, the Kardashian family dynasty showed signs of splintering on Sunday in the latest episode of the reality show. Kim recently denied having surgery on her famous derriere, but appears to be open to other procedures Since Bruce Jenner moved out of the family home, Kim and Khloé have been struggling to come to terms with the separation and now Kendall Jenner expressed her desire to move out after turning 18. A phone call for Bruce appeared distressing for Khloé after her sister Kim was forced to tell the caller ‘Bruce doesn’t live here.’ ‘Ever since Bruce moved out he hardly ever comes by the house anymore and that’s so sad to me,’ said Khloé, 29, on the new episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. ‘I still consider him as my dad and I love him,” she added tearfully. ‘This separation just isn’t real to me, I don’t want to accept it,’ added the reality star, who has suffered her own break-up with former NBA player Lamar Odom following his alleged drug use and infidelities. Lying on the bed, Kim had other things on her mind: ‘I have to get my nails done, I have to get a fitting. I can’t even think of all the things I have to do,’ she moaned. ‘Yeah, life is so tough,’ griped Khloé sarcastically. Kendall Jenner meanwhile was celebrating her 18th birthday and preparing to fly the coop – much to 58-year-old mother Kris Jenner’s dismay.  ‘I’m getting really serious about the house-hunting thing,’ said the teen star, as she perused luxury homes in Malibu, California with her father. The matriarch and ‘momager’ was not impressed.  ‘I will never be ready for Kendall to leave home,’ she complained. ‘They’re dropping like flies,’ she said. As Bruce encouraged his daughter to gain her independence a rift erupted between him and Kris. ‘Why are you in such a rush to get her to move out and to move to Malibu?’ Kris grumbled. ‘It’s time for her to take that next step in life,’ said Bruce, who had a raw wound on his nose where his recent skin cancer was removed...

Ghostbusters star Harold Ramis dies aged 69

Actor and director Harold Ramis, best known for the films Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day, has died aged 69. Harold Ramis The star found fame as bespectacled ghost-hunter Egon Spengler in the Ghostbusters franchise in 1984. But he was also a talented writer and director, whose credits included Caddyshack and Animal House. “His creativity, compassion, intelligence, humour and spirit will be missed by all who knew and loved him,” said his family in a statement. Much-admired in Hollywood, Ramis’s death prompted an outpouring of tributes on Twitter. Billy Crystal, who starred in the director’s mobster comedies Analyze This and Analyze That wrote: “Sad to hear my friend Harold Ramis passed away. “A brilliant, funny, actor and director. A wonderful husband and dad. Big loss to us all.” Iron Man director Jon Favreau added: “No, no, not Harold Ramis. Worked for him years ago. He was the real deal. Growing up, his work changed my life. He will be missed.” “Harold Ramis was a brilliant, shining example for every comedy writer hoping to achieve excellence the field,” wrote Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane. US chat show host Seth Meyers called him “one of the all time greats”, while Scrubs actor Zach Braff said: “If you’re my age and got into comedy, Harold Ramis was one of the reasons. Life is fast and over too soon.” Born in Chicago to convenience store owners Ruth and Nathan, Ramis studied at Washington University in Missouri and, on graduation, briefly worked in a psychiatric ward. He started his career as a writer by penning arts stories for his local newspaper and editing Playboy magazine’s “party jokes” section. “It was amazing how many of these jokes were written in pencil on three-ring notebook paper, or came from people who were incarcerated,” he told The Chicago Reader. “It was also amazing how many of them dealt with farmers and farm animals. “At the time – it was the late 1960s – the Playboy editors wanted to modernize the jokes a bit, to make them more counterculture. A big part of my job was changing ‘the farmer’ into ‘a swinging advertising executive.’” After leaving the magazine, he joined Chicago’s renowned Second City improvised comedy troupe but said he realised his limitations as a performer after encountering John Belushi. “When I saw how far he was willing to go to get a laugh or to make a point on stage, the language he would use, how physical he was, throwing himself literally off the stage, taking big falls, strangling other actors, I thought: ‘I’m never going to be this big.’” Instead, he played the straight man – acting as a sardonic foil to Bill Murray in the 18-rated army comedy Stripes, and playing the most straitlaced and scientifically-inclined of the Ghostbusters trio. The film, a global smash in 1984, spawned a sequel in 1989 as well as a long-running cartoon series. A third instalment had been in development for several years. Ramis acknowledged that the spectral comedy was his most memorable work but took pride in its longevity. “People love Ghostbusters in a really big way,” he said in 2009...
