The second-youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner brood is getting serious flack for a video she posted on social media earlier this week.

He finds instant fame after telling a white lie but soon finds it comes with a price. Read More

App for That

We know what you’re thinking — the last thing the app-o-sphere needs is yet another photo or video sharing app fruitlessly trying to compete with Instagram.

That’s what we thought, at first, of OKDOTHIS, a photo sharing app that launched today. But the app still intrigued us, because instead of just letting you share your lame, low-quality pics of eggs benedict, it aims to help you improve your creativity and photography skills. Read More
