Khloe Kardashian keeps flag flying with ‘Kocktails’

Former NBA star Odom is recuperating from an apparent drug overdose last year in a Nevada brothel.

Khloe said: “He’s doing amazing, and I’m so proud of the strength that he has had to fight that battle.”

Promoting her upcoming talk show, Kocktails With Khloe, at the Television Critics Association meeting on Wednesday in California, she gave an update of her ex’s recovery.

Khloe had filed for divorce from Odom, but she halted those proceedings after he was found unconscious last October.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is premiering her new show on January 20 on the FYI channel in the US. It will be filmed in a replica of her house, and will feature celebrity guests.

  • Janet Jackson has denied reports that she has cancer. However, the award-winning singer hasn’t specified the illness that interfered with her Unbreakable concert tour.

A post on her official Twitter account said: “It was Janet’s wish not to make any further comments about her health, however, because of the great concern from around the world, Janet will be releasing a personal message shortly. -Janet’s Team.”

A follow-up tweet from the star said: “From my lips.” Posted alongside the words was a two-minute clip from her song The Great Forever.

As the song ended, the following personal message appeared.

“Remember... believe it when you hear it from my lips. The rumors are untrue. I do not have cancer. I’m recovering. My doctors have approved my concerts as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled. Thank you for your prayers and love.”

  • Stephanie Davis who played Sinead O’Connor in Hollyoaks, former Mr Ireland Jeremy McConnell and Geordie Shore’s Scotty T will have a hand in deciding the fate of one housemate in the latest Celebrity Big Brother twist.

The trio will make “killer nominations” after successfully negotiating their earlier task which resulted in ex-EastEnders stars Danniella Westbrook and John Partridge as well as stage star Darren Day being freed from their “box”.

  • Vin Diesel struggled to get through his emotional speech as he paid tribute to his late co-star Paul Walker while accepting an award for Furious 7 at the People’s Choice Awards.

The actor looked like he was choking back tears as he accepted the award for favourite movie and favourite action movie, before launching into the opening lines of Wiz Khalifa’s See You Again until he was cut off.

He dedicated the two awards in his hand to his character Dom and Walker’s character Brian in the franchise.

“They said to make this short and sweet, so I’ll keep it short and sweet, it was a labour of love and my only message to you is you’d be amazed what you can do with love.

“When the tragedy was too heavy it was the love of everyone that got me through and now I’m standing here with you telling me this is your favourite film of the year.

“It’s real people voting for these awards, not academies; real fans, and that means so much to me.”

Then he began singing the film’s tribute track to Walker, who starred as Brian O’Conner in the franchise until his death in November 2013.
