Former ‘America’s Top Model’ Contestant is Suing Ryan Seacrest Because She Got Naked in Front of His Cameras
A quick rule of thumb for everyone out there, if you’re standing in front of a camera, don’t assume that the person filming with said camera will just throw out any footage of you changing in front of it. Try not changing in front of it. This might sound like one of those old ladies on TV saying not to send your partner intimate photos of yourself in case you get hacked, but I assure you this is very different. Take all the naked photos you want with your own camera, just don’t get naked in front of other people’s cameras and assume no one will ever see it.
This is what Kiara Belen did at a fashion show where Shahs of Sunset was filming, and she assumed she was in a “female changing area” when she got naked in front of the cameras for that show. Only she wasn’t, she was basically getting naked on a live set.
Deadline reported on the contents of the motion filed by Belen.
“Further, comments made by a cast member during the scenes in which Ms. Belen appears objectified Ms. Belen in an offensive way,” the 12-page filing asserts of the incident, which occurred backstage at a 2016 LA Fashion Week runway show featuring Sunset cast member Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, where seasoned model Belen was called a “bitch” by another cast member. In the “Hava Nagila, Hava Tequila” episode of the unscripted well-heeled show, the ANTM Cycle 19 runner-up was also captured on video changing in what she assumed was a “private dressing area” as the Bravo series’ cameras swirled around.
“The exposure of Ms. Belen’s nearly fully nude likeness is heightened due to the fact that at the time in which Ms. Belen was filmed while she was a few months pregnant with her daughter, and was dealing with the challenge of her body changing as a result, leading to a period of great insecurity,” the complaint (read it here) from James Bryant of The Cochran Firm California against Sunset producers Ryan Seacrest Productions, Ryan Seacrest Enterprises and NBCUniversal-owned cabler Bravo states. “The fact that Defendant exposed Ms. Belen’s pregnant nearly naked body to millions of viewers left Ms. Belen feeling completely violated.”
Now, they probably didn’t need to use that footage, but if you’re filming a reality show and someone walks in front of your cameras and goes “This must be the changing room, I’ll just strip on camera, nothing bad could come of this,” well, the law generally has a “reasonable man” standard and I don’t know if a reasonable man would think that getting naked in front of TV cameras would not result in a chance that you’re on TV naked.
Ah, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. One of the sacred days of reflection for men everywhere. I guess some women watch it too, for some reason, but I feel like if they were actually trying to advertise lingerie they wouldn’t have the giant elaborate angel wing rigs on the models. And let’s face it, we’ve all known way more men who get the Victoria’s Secret catalogue than women.
But this year men will just have to turn to internet porn on that holiest of days because according to model Shaina Shaik, there isn’t going to be a Victoria’s Secret runway show this year. Via Allure:
“Unfortunately, the Victoria’s Secret show won’t be happening this year,” said Shaik. According to her, the company is “trying to work on branding and new ways to do the show.” Allure has reached out to Victoria’s Secret for comment.
In May, L Brands’ chief executive, Leslie Wexner, announced a rebranding in an internal memo. “Fashion is a business of change. We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” the memo read. “In 2019 and beyond, we’re focusing on developing exciting and dynamic content and a kind of event — delivered to our customers on platforms that she’s glued to…and in ways that will push the boundaries in the global digital age.”
As I alluded to earlier, they’re competing with internet porn, but it’ll probably be back soon because the angel thing is a pretty big branding deal for Victoria’s Secret. Even if people aren’ watching it as much, it’s out there in the zeitgeist.
In the mean time, though, if we want to see Shanina Shaik in her underwear we’ll just have to check Instagram.
I’m kind of surprised fashion shows are still a thing. Just send your insane costumes to Instagram models, you’ll probably get more eyeballs on it for way less money.

Your Highness Qiao Biluo, a popular streamer in China on the Douyu platform with over 100,000 followers, has been described as a “cute goddess” worshipped by her fans. Despite always covering her face with an anime filter, fans would regularly donate to her stream, the highest being $6,000, because her sweet, innocent fans thought her cute voice meant she was cute. She didn’t do much to dispel that myth as she’d post edited pics on her Weibo, China’s Twitter. She was basically a PG version of a cam girl but with more blue-balling.
Unfortunately, that all came to an end on July 25 when her face filter glitched during one of her livestreams. This led to sudden shock and horror among her viewers. Some questioned their life choices or, at the very least, their past wank sessions. Qiao looked closer to the 58-year-old middle-aged woman she was than a hot 20-something.
Qiao didn’t even realize she wasn’t being filtered until viewers started leaving her channel. Her top donator straight up quit the stream and deleted his account. I can’t even begin to imagine what he was feeling. But it’s probably something similar to what you feel after jerking off to a Aunt Jemima bottle. Shame, guilt, regret.
You’d think Qiao would also quit out of sheer embarrassment, but when life gives you lemons, you pretend you did it on purpose, rack up 650,000 followers from the controversy, take advertisements from beauty cameras and announce an upcoming music album. Qiao may not be the cutest woman out there, but you have to respect her courage. Especially on that album release considering her voice sounds like this.

Meghan Markle has made this much clear:
She wasn't exactly taking it easy during the final few weeks of her pregnancy.
In new photos from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's official Instagram account, the former USA Network actress is giving followers a glimpse behind the scenes of her somewhat private life.
(Yes, Markle is one of the most public figures on the planet in one sense. But, in another sense, do you have any idea what she does on a daily basis?)
These pictures reveal a very, VERY pregnant Markle while she delves into important business and happenings at her Smart Works charity, an organization that helps vulnerable and longterm unemployed women regain the skills and confidence to get into work.
Pretty admirable, right?
To celebrate her recently-announced line of women’s workwear - which will benefit Smart Works - the relatively new mother shared the new snapshots above and below from her visits to Smart Works.
The 37-year appears here to be playing stylist, helping clients select pieces to wear to a job interview.
She's also shown sitting at a table to talka bout the charity’s work.
It's also worth noting that Markle appears to be rocking the same black vintage jacket she sported while stepping out in New York City ahead of her baby shower in February.
Reads the caption alongside these new photographs:
Throughout her visits she noticed that while the donations were plentiful, they were also notably a combination of mismatched items and colours which weren’t always the right stylistic choices or sizes that didn’t necessarily ‘suit’ the job at hand: to make a woman feel confident and inspired as she walked into her job interview.
As for the aforementioned line of women's workwear?
"Launching this autumn, The Duchess will be supporting a collective to help equip the women of Smart Works with the key workwear essentials they need as they enter into the workplace," the sussexroyal account explains.
"This initiative is supported by four generous brands who share the vision to empower the women of Smart Works to look and feel [100 emoji] as they bravely venture in to what can often be a daunting environment for those who have been out of the job market."
Markle guest-edited the latest issue of British Vogue, earning a great deal of backlash in the process.
She opened up about this charitable project within its pages, writing:
“To help with this, I asked Marks & Spencer, John Lewis & Partners, Jigsaw and my friend, the designer Mischa Nonoo, if they were willing to design a capsule collection of more classic options for a workwear wardrobe.
"Taking the idea further, many of the brands agreed to use the one-for-one model: for each item purchased by a customer, one is donated to the charity.
"Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together."
At Smart Works, clients receive one-on-one interview preparation, along with an ensemble to try and help them secure employment.
Once the client does, indeed, land a job, she receives five additional pieces of clothing to help see them through to their first paycheck.
“The reason why I was drawn to Smart Works is that it reframed the idea of charity as community…..it’s a network of women supporting and empowering other women in their professional pursuits,” writes Markle.
This is a true story. When I glimpsed Ali Larter in these super hot Insta snaps, I assumed that a) she was in her thirties (but looked like she was in her twenties) and b) that she never had kids. 0 for 2 baby. Ali Larter is somehow supposedly forty-three-years-old, and she’s gestated not one but two children – the youngest of which was born in 2015. Larter loves to show off her flat stomach and athletic bod on Instagram, and it’s almost like, IDK, when you have millions of dollars in disposable income, you can afford the trainers, diet, and not to mention time needed to look hot? Or is that crazy talk. Seriously, Ali’s bod is much more derived from her God-given good looks than mula. But either way, who really cares. Just. Damn. Is she gorgeous. We’ve been sleeping on Ali this whole time…

No time like the present to slip into my birthday suit! Feeling relaxed and filled with gratitude for my loving friends and family. I woke up early this morning and grounded myself and my home. I opened my eyes to the warmest hugs from my sweet kids and incredible husband. I savored my cup of brew with Leon Bridges purring in the background. This year is about staying in the present- even when its uncomfortable, maintaining my commitment to meditation and sweat yoga, finding ways to fill people’s buckets, act from my deepest inner self, and give a voice to people that may not be able to do it themselves. I sound like one big Oprah supersoul podcast- probably because I listen to her religiously! But I am thankful for that part of my life because it balances my killer instinct, Jersey roots, and insatiable desire to live this life to its fullest! Thank you for all my beautiful birthday wishes. I am one lucky gal. Here’s to another journey around the
Back in 2017, Selena Gomez underwent a life-saving kidney transplant.
The donor was her longtime friend Francia Raisa, who risked her life in a procedure riddled with complications.
Thankfully, both Gomez and Raisa survived the procedure.
Their friendship, on the other hand, has officially been pronounced dead.
According to a new report from Radar Online, Selena and Francia have not spoken in over nine months.
“They haven’t talked at all since October,” a source close to the situation tells Radar.
The news comes as a shock to many, as Selena repeatedly sang Francia's praises in the weeks after her surgery.
“She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me,” Gomez told Elle at the time.
“I am incredibly blessed.”
Selena tells the magazine she was so frail at one point that she was completely unable to perform the simplest of household tasks.
“I couldn’t pick up my dog — he’s 16 pounds. That was rough. I couldn’t walk him.”
Despite her brush with death, there are certain lifestyle changes that Selena simply refuses to make.
For example, while many who have had issues with their kidneys choose to steer clear of alcohol and other substances that might tax the organs, Selena has proudly proclaimed that she still enjoys the occasional glass of wine.
“As far as my personal life, someone sees me having a glass of wine? I could give two sh-ts," she told Elle.
"I’m not trying to hide. That’s my life."
While that's certainly her prerogative, the folks at Radar speculate that Selena's continued partying may have played a role in Rasia's decision to end the friendship.
Selena checked into rehab back in February, and many of her friends reportedly believe that drinking is one of the activities she should avoid for the sake of both her physical and mental wellbeing.
We may never know exactly what led to the falling-out between Selena and Francia.
But if Gomez was the one to pull the plug on the friendship -- as is currently being rumored -- we hope she can find it in heart to forgive her former friend.
After all, she literally carries a piece of Raisa with her everywhere she goes.
Brazilian beauty Adriana Lima spent a whopping 19 years as a Victoria’s Secret Angel until she parted ways with the company last year, and it’s not hard to see why they wanted her as the face of the company for so long. She’s easily one of the most gorgeous women on the planet, with an incredible body and a knack for making already sexy lingerie even sexier.
Adriana was spotted walking around in Spain and she tried awfully hard to keep her face covered from the photographers who were obviously following her, but she should know that there’s no way to disguise her hotness. It’s got to be damn near impossible for her to go anywhere without the cameras following her, so I’m not sure why she doesn’t just embrace it at this point.
Moving out of the limelight has certainly not kept Adriana Lima out of it. She’ll likely always have throngs of photographers and gawkers looking at her wherever she goes. I suppose it’s the price she has to pay for being so gorgeous. At the same time, she really shouldn’t try and cover up, it doesn’t help anyone or anything. As my grandmother always said, if you’ve got it, flaunt it.

I don’t think it’s a news flash for anyone that Tallia Storm is among the hottest women on the planet, but these new modeling pics are proof positive that she’s got it going on. There’s so much sexiness packed into one photo shoot, not to mention all the different outfits, that Tallia Storm is going to be the name on everyone’s lips—and the face in everyone’s spank bank—for the next few weeks.
I’m not sure what Tallia Storm is selling or advertising with these photos, but I know what I like, and I like Tallia Storm’s style. I particularly like anything where she’s showing off lots of cleavage, with the pics where she’s adopting a pouty face running a close second. Hell, you combine Tallia Storm making a pouty face with plenty of cleavage and you just might have the perfect combination of sexiness.
Tallia Storm may well take the world by storm, but it’s undeniable that she’s got what it takes to make it happen. She’s one of those women that is hot from every angle and this photo shoot offers plenty of angles for you to judge for yourself. We already know what my favorites are… what are yours?

It's safe to say that Shannon Beador's bitter divorce was a miserable time for her -- just as the preceeding years were their own kind of hell.
These days, she's been focusing on herself -- and the astounding results speak for themselves.
In this new The Real Housewives of Orange County clip, Shannon talks about life after losing a whopping 40 pounds.
In this new clip, Shannon Beador shows up to work out with her 17-year-old daughter, Sophie, and 14-year-old twins Adeline and Stella.
"I'm honestly really nervous," Sophie confesses to her mother. "Because I haven't worked out in so long."
Working out on camera is never an ideal situation, but it must be especially nervewracking if you're out of practice.
"Ladies and gentlemen," Shannon tells the confessional camera. "Introducing the new Shannon Storms Beador!"
"I've lost 40 pounds," she announces. "And I've gained a lot of fun!"
"Fun Shannon, BAM, is back," Shannon proclaims with glee.
She has lost a significant amount of weight through a lot of hard work.
(The secret to her weight loss is, as it always is, being rich enough to hire a personal trainer and to have the time to work out)
"I’m proud of myself, darn it!" Shannon says. "It was two years of hell."
We're proud of her, too!
When Shannon says that it was two years of hell, she wasn't kidding.
The weight gain was just a symptom. The "disease" in this case was misery -- misery at the hands of her ex, David Beador.
We see multiple sad flashbacks of Shannon's body before she lost the weight.
In another clip, we see her tearfully confess to Vicky how miserable she feels that David was able to move on like he did.
"I shared 20 years with a man and the fact that he has found someone within months of leaving me is devastating," Shannon sobbed.
"The hardest work was changing the insides," Shannon explains of her dramatic body transformation.
She describes "getting to the mental place where I know I’m gonna be OK."
"And then the weight was just, kinda, a lot easier,” Shannon admits.
“At a certain point," she expresses. "it just started coming off."
As we said -- her weight gain (though not really that big of a deal) was a symptom of her abject misery.
Shannon is reaping the benefits of all of her hard work.
We don't just mean the social privilege that comes with being thin.
Regular exercise -- at almost any body type -- has a number of benefits.
One of them is a major boost to your libido and sex drive.
We have to wonder -- is that why Shannon has reportedly been kissing dudes left and right?
Good for her.
Another charming part of this clip, of course, is the presence of Shannon's daughters.
For example, Stella shows off her rock-hard arm muscles, to Shannon's astonishment.
Stella is happy to credit her teenage metabolism for her impressive figure.
Sophie explains that she wants to start working out with one of her friends.
Adeline, in the meantime, has zero interest in working out. She likes her slender figure and does not want to build muscle mass.
Alita: Battle Angel certainly wasn’t a bad movie, but it wasn’t without some major league flaws. The biggest issue the film had was the massive amounts of exposition that characters spouted off from the very beginning all the way until the very end, constantly explaining the rules of the world to the main character and, by proxy, the audience. Essentially, like many James Cameron projects, it over-explained things rather than trusting the audience to keep up.
The film is now getting the Honest Trailer treatment from the folks over at Screen Junkies, and they can’t help but bring up this particularly fatal flaw. They’re also not terribly hard on the film, which is appropriate considering it’s a difficult film to hate due to its earnestness. One area in which they really should have gone for the kill was with Alita’s love interest, played by this walking charisma vacuum.
Overall, Alita: Battle Angel is a decent flick that’s worth watching once, but not something I’m eager to revisit anytime soon. Yes, it’s got a great kick-ass female protagonist at a time in which such things are in short supply, but the film just isn’t an interesting enough adaptation of a damn good manga that’s totally worth reading. The film is available on all disc formats and VOD.
At various times, Kailyn Lowry has had beef with all three of her baby daddies.
But over the past year, she really seemed to have worked out an amicable co-parenting relationship with the father of her eldest son, Jo Rivera.
Sure, there was the spat over Lowry paying Rivera child support, but for the most part, these two have gotten along swimmingly.
And when Jo married Vee Torres earlier this year, Kail was on hand to wish the newlyweds well.
But that was then, and this is now -- and it looks as though Lowry and Torres' relationship has once again hit the skids.
At issue is Kail's frequent vacations to Hawaii with friend and co-star Leah Messer.
The ladies usually bring their offspring along for the ride, and that's where Lowry rubs Rivera the wrong way:
“Kail took Isaac to Hawaii on June 30, even though Jo was scheduled to have him on the 4th of July from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.,” a source close to Teen Mom 2 tells The Ashley's Reality Roundup.
“If Jo chose to file contempt on her, and Kail was found in contempt, she could be fined or even put in jail."
All of this has put MTV in an awkward legal position:
“MTV could not film because legally, because if they did, it would be like they were encouraging Kail to break her custody agreement," says the insider.
"Then they would be part of whatever happened between Jo and Kail in court, had Jo filed."
Despite some serious consequences hanging over her head, it seems Lowry is completely out of f--ks to give:
“Kail told [someone from the production/crew] that she was fully aware of the possible consequences, but that she decided it was worth sitting in jail for 24 hours, if it came to that,” the source claims.
“Kail told [people] that Jo has taken Isaac out of state for ‘business’ without her permission, which is against their custody arrangement, so she just didn’t care anymore,” the source said.
As a result of this ongoing battle, Kail and Jo are reportedly "no longer on speaking terms."
“Kail and Jo do not get along at all. Jo has refused to film [for the upcoming season],” another production source tells The Ashley.
“There is no footage of Jo in the next season. He does not want to deal with Kail or the show anymore.”
And it seems Kail's OG baby daddy is not alone in his decision:
“Jo will not film for ‘Teen Mom 2,’ and, actually, Javi [Marroquin] isn’t filming either,” the source says.
“Jo isn’t filming by choice, due to all of this conflict with Kail, and Javi is not filming because he doesn’t want his new business [a CrossFit gym] to be associated with the show.”
It's a sad situation -- but it's hilarious that Javi thinks his freakin' gym will be more lucrative than the show.
We suppose cast members fleeing like rats from a sinking ship is just number 4 bajillion why it's time to cancel Teen Mom 2.
