Kim Kardashian Artfully Dodges Question About Her Sisters' Split with Stylist Monica Rose [Bravo]
Kim Kardashian artfully dodged a question about her sisters' split with longtime stylist Monica Rose while making an appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. The reality star stated that she stopped working with Rose about four years ago, adding that "Kanye wanted to give me a makeover," so she enlisted a new team to give her a different "vibe." However, as to why her sisters abruptly severed their relationship with the image maker and unfollowed her on social media, she said, "You'd have to ask Khloe and Kendall and Kylie."

Chicago-born rapper Taylor Bennett (younger brother of Chance the Rapper) is the new face of Urban Outfitters' seven-piece Pride collection, which launched Tuesday in stores and online in conjunction with Pride Month. All proceeds of the capsule, priced $24-$39, will benefit GLSEN, which works to provide safe school environments for LGBTQ students.

Reporter Ben Jacobs Replaced His Glasses After Old Pair Broken by Montana Congressman [The Guardian]
After a scuffle with congressional hopeful (now Congressman) Greg Gianforte left reporter Ben Jacobs' glasses in shambles a day before the Montana election to fill the seat vacated by Ryan Zinke, who was appointed as United States Secretary of the Interior, the Guardian writer has replaced his frames with a spiffy new pair by Banana Republic (which does, indeed, sell eyeglasses frames). Jacobs' right eye was bruised following the misdemeanor assault by Gianforte, who attacked the reporter after he asked questions about the GOP healthcare bill. (Gianforte's camp states that Jacobs was asked to leave several times and "aggressively shoved a recorder in Greg's face.") The broken pair will be donated to the Newseum in Washington and kept for posterity.
