Kendall, Gigi, and Bella aren’t on this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show cast list
Rumors of a failed Hailey Baldwin audition persist, too
by Amanda Ross
Kendall Jenner and Gigi and Bella Hadid's collective presence at last year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was a divisive one.
Some slammed the trio of well-connected celebrity off-spring as recipients of nepotism, Instagram models who used their famous families to score real gigs. Some (a lot!) loved it. Some were more into The Weeknd. Whatever. Different strokes for different folks.
Whatever your opinion of the it-girls, their absence on the just-released list of models walking in this year's VSFS is causing something of a stir.
While it's entirely possible they just haven't been confirmed yet, VS never puts out a list that isn't finalized. The only models who don't go on the widely-distributed list are the VS Angels. And while the three are definitely draws for the televised show, the likelihood of inking a commitment-heavy Angel contract one season in is slim.

The most fun and nerve racking experience of my life but I wish I could do it over and over and over again!!!!! 🎀🎀Thank you @theweeknd for being the best and most incredible performer on the planet.

Not only are Gigi, Kendall, and Bella not on the list, but neither is their friend and fellow celeb-spawn Hailey Baldwin. We're positive Baldwin auditioned because she was pap'd walking into the casting office, but it seems she wasn't selected. Which is fine because failure makes you stronger, according to every Gatorade commercial ever.
The question remains, though: Why are Kendall, Gigi and Bella (henceforth known as KenGilBe) not on the list? Were they not offered a spot this year? Were they too busy for the show? Did they just not audition? It's entirely possible.
Regardless of the reason for KenGilBe's absence, we reached out to the Victoria's Secret press office for more info.
‘Cinderella Weight’ is a dangerous new diet trend Twitter is obsessed with, and it’s turned into a full-fledged panic
Yeah, please don’t try this
by Amanda Ross
You know, I really get the dieting thing. I'm definitely not as skinny as I was in high school, and I'd really like to looks like a lithe and even-stupider-than-I-am-now 16-year-old again. But even my dumb ass is too smart for this scary new weight fad that's taking over teen Twitter. Now, huge waves of…

Here’s why we need a White History Month
I salute my white walkers!
by Ari Bines
It's Black History Month, a time where we celebrate the accomplishments and achievements of Harriet Tubman, the only Black person the American school system knows. However, the problem with this celebration is that white people have felt using all 28 days of the shortest month of the year is making them feel left out. Can't…
