10) Born Rich: Ivanka Trump Has Always Been Oblivious
Born Rich began as Johnson & Johnson heir Jamie Johnson‘s college thesis project, but turned into this documentary of him interviewing several of his very wealthy friends who were also born into enormous wealth. One of these friends is the then-eighteen year old Ivanka Trump who makes it completely obvious she’s alway been an oblivious rich girl.
9) Generation Wealth by Lauren Greenfield
Lauren Greenfield – perhaps best known for her award winning documentary The Queen of Versailles – has a new photography project called Generation Wealth that “examines the influence of affluence over the last 25 years, illustrating the globalization of materialism, celebrity culture and social status. This timely, thought-provoking collection explores how “keeping up with the Joneses” has become Keeping Up with the Kardashians, magnifying the aspirational gap between what we want and what we can afford. The exhibit is not about the rich, but the pervasive desire for more.” Pre-order the coffee table book now!
8) Amanda Lepore’s Doll Parts

7) Janet Jackson is BACK IN CONTROL: Divorcing Wissam Al Mana
Only months after giving birth to their son Eissa Al Mana, Janet Jackson and her billionaire husband of five years Wissam Al Mana have split the sheets. Rumor has it their conscious uncoupling is because he wasn’t as supportive about her mother’s claims of elder abuse as she would have liked. Does this mean there may be a big comeback for Janet Jackson on the horizon?
6) 13 Reasons Why
James St. James calls it “the most important television show of the year,” “the must watch/must binge show,” and “absolutely fantastic.” We’re talking about the Selena Gomez – executive produced Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. It’s Pretty Little Liars meets Veronica Mars with a handful of hotties who look like they jumped off the pages of Tiger Beat magazine! It’s currently streaming on Netflix.
5) The Kim Kardashian Principle: Why Shameless Sales and How To Do It Right
This “self help” book by Jeetendr Sehdev about the Kardashian principle – S.E.L.F.I.E. – somehow found it’s way to Fenton’s desk. The book “reveals the people, products, and brands that do it best–from YouTube sensations like Jenna Marbles to billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk–and proves why the old strategies aren’t working. After all, in a world where a big booty can break the Internet and the president is a reality TV star, self-obsession is a must-have. No posturing, no apologies, and no shying away from the spotlight.” Hmmmm… Get your copy today!
4) United Airlines: Comply With Me!
3) Barbara Bush’s Toes Are Falling Off!
