Keaton Jones' Mom Explains 'Ironic' Confederate Flag Photos Amid Claims She's Racist

30 minutes ago

The mother of bullied Tennessee student Keaton Jones, Kimberly Jones, is responding to the backlash she's received after Facebook posts showed the family posing with a Confederate flag.

Celebrites such as Chris Evans and Justin Bieber rallied around 11-year-old Keaton over the weekend, when a heartbreaking video Kimberly shared on social media showed her son in tears over students at school bullying him. However, the family was scrutinized shortly after thanks to the controversial photos, with some slamming Kimberly as racist. In an interview with CBS News, Kimberly discussed the backlash.

"The only two photos -- the only two photos on my entire planet that I am anywhere near a Confederate flag. It was ironic. It was funny," Jones said.

Kimberly adamently denied the photos were posted with racist intent.

"No. No. Absolutely not," she stressed. "I've said I spent most of my life being bullied and judged because I wasn't racist."

The 9 Biggest Kardashian Moments of 2017: From Rob and Chyna's Nasty Split to Three Pregnancies

41 minutes ago

2017 has come and gone, and so has a new batch of Kardashian drama.

Though we can always count on the famous family for fresh water cooler talk, this year seemed a little more tame than years past (it seems they were graciously saving their headlines for the end of the year). 

From Caitlyn Jenner's jaw-dropping memoirsparking a feud with Kris Jenner to Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna's heated split over the summer (and subsequent lawsuits), to Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner's babies on the way, we're counting down the nine biggest Kardashian moments of the year!

1. Caitlyn's Relationship With the Family Sours

Caitlyn and Kris appeared to be on good terms at the family's annual Christmas Eve bash in 2016, but just several months -- and an explosive memoir -- later, Kris declared she was "done" with her former husband. Kris, claiming she was portrayed as a "b**ch and an a**hole »

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Review: The Force Is Strong With This One

43 minutes ago

All hail our new porg overlords! I have seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which means I've now pledged allegiance to Porg Nation. I'm only joking -- though I will be talking more about those adorable flying rodents in a moment -- but while trailers for Episode VIII have been heavy on the porgs, there is one line of dialogue in the previews, uttered by Luke Skywalker, that proves most prescient in the end: "This is not going to go the way you think."

J.J. Abrams may have played it fairly conventionally with The Force Awakens, garnering flack for retreading too much of the same ground as A New Hope while successfully launching the franchise again, so y'know, kudos to him, but The Last Jedi writer-director Rian Johnson (Looper) ushers the galaxy far, far away into bold and unexpected directions. Even the things that feel familiar, feel a bit different.

Prince William Names J.K. Rowling Royal Companion of Honor

43 minutes ago

J.K. Rowling is now a royal Companion of Honor!

The Harry Potter author was granted the prestigious title by Prince William at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, saying she was "deeply honored and proud" to receive the honor, which is limited to 65 people "of distinction" at any one time.

"To be included in the distinguished and diversely talented company of the other Companions of Honor, especially as a female writer, is a particular privilege," added Rowling, who was honored for her services to literature and philanthropy.

The decoration comes nearly 20.5 years after the U.K. release of the first novel in her best-selling fantasy series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. In 2001, she also received the Order of the British Empire (OBE) from His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales, for services to children's literature.

Rowling -- chic in a head-to-toe blue ensemble with a freshly painted red manicure -- seemed to be in good spirits while accepting the medal »

Paris Hilton Claims Lindsay Lohan Crashed Her Girls Night Out With Britney Spears

1 hour ago

Paris Hilton pulled a major Mean Girls move on Lindsay Lohan.

While talking to MTV News Australia, the 36-year-old hotel heiress was asked to comment on an 11-year-old famous photo of herself, Lohan and Britney Spears having a night on the town, which led to the trio being labeled the "Holy Trinity."

Throwing shade at the 31-year-old actress, Hilton recalled, "It was just Brit and I out, and then [Lindsay] just, like, chased us to the car and got in. She wasn't invited."

She further quipped, "She wasn't on the list."

Lohan, however, doesn't seem to have any hard feelings toward Hilton after all these years. Back in June, she celebrated her birthday in Mykonos, Greece, and invited both Hilton and Spears to join her.

"#nicegirls @britneyspears @parishilton come to #mykonos for my birthday this weekend? @Beyonce you too," she tweeted.

The "Holy Trinity" did not end up reuniting for Lohan's birthday, but there will be »

Jessica Chastain Says She Feared Speaking Out Against Sexual Harassment Would Affect Her Career

2 hours ago

Jessica Chastain admits that her fifth Golden Globe nomination came as a surprise.

On Monday, the 40-year-old actress was recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for her lead role in Aaron Sorkin's Molly's Game, but tellsThe New York Times that she feared her outspoken remarks on sexual harassment in the entertainment industry would have a negative affect on her career. 

"To be honest, I'm mainly surprised about my nomination," she confesses. "As an actor, I have a lot of fear, thinking that if I speak my mind, or something that feels like it deviates from the norm as a woman, am I going to be made to disappear in my industry?"

In October, the Times released an expose where numerous women accused former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment. 

Not long after the piece was published, Chastain tweeted: "I was warned from the beginning. The stories were everywhere. To deny that is »

Royal Wedding Rings: The History Behind the Rare Gold Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Could Use (Exclusive)

5 hours ago

Now that the world has seen Meghan Markle’s stunning diamond engagement ring, designed by Prince Harry himself, the next piece of jewelry on everyone’s minds is the 36-year-old former Suits star’s upcoming wedding band.

But will Markle and Prince Harry keep with the royal family’s tradition? The Windsor family has used Clogau gold from the Clogau St. David’s Mine in Wales since the early 1900s. The gold has been present in the wedding rings of the Queen Mother, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles, the late Princess Diana, Camilla Parker Bowles, and Kate Middleton.

“I anticipate that it was initially used by the royal family because the mine itself, the Clogau St. David’s Mine, was the most productive mine in the whole of the country and it still remains in the Guinness Book of World Records for that reason,” Clogau Managing Director Ben Roberts tells Et. “And, of course »
