This is really sad to hear.

Rebecca Romijn is having serious regrets right now!
In a conversation with Us Weekly, Rebecca clarified some shady comments she made about Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid back in April. It looks like R.R. has had a BIG change of heart after she declared that the duo were NOT supermodels!
Essentially, the 43-year-old is suggesting that her controversial message was taken out of context. Apparently the blonde never uttered Gigi and Kenny's names to begin with, which is an error that does occasionally happen in interviews from time to time.
The beauty went on to explain:
"First of all, I was asked my opinion about a social media trend, no specific names were ever mentioned. Secondly, I'm embarrassed that I even used the word ‘supermodel.' It's a dumb word that has always been too loosely thrown around. These two ladies are in a stratosphere that I never came close to in the modeling world, and I know they're working their butts off. That said, it's not a competition and we don't get anything out of pitting women against each other."
Hmm… maybe the momma felt compelled to backtrack on her comments after Stephanie Seymour got bashed for essentially saying the SAME thing. Jenner and Hadid's fan base is strong!
So, do YOU think Rebecca should have backtracked on her comments?
Kendall Jenner is standing her ground.
It seems the brunette beauty had NO time for the '90s icon's shade as she wrote:
"B*tches of the moment! That would be a good title for them."
The once-famous supermodel prefaced it by saying:
"They are completely different than we were. Supermodels are sort of the thing of the past. They deserve their own title. [Kendall and Gigi] are beautiful girls, and I support all of them, but they need their own title."
Hmm. Not sure if "b*tches" is a term of endearment, but it definitely doesn't sound like it!
The 46-year-old continued to explain:
"I'm so glad social media didn't exist during our time. I'm a private person, and sharing everything feels odd to me. And because there weren't cameras around us all the time, we got away with so much more and had so much more fun. We didn't have people watching us all the time, and we weren't putting ourselves out there in a way that was turning the media against us or for us in any way. We still had our privacy, and there was more of an illusion behind the girls. You lose your illusion when you give much of yourself away, and that's what I don't like about it. I'm so glad it didn't exist back then. I can't imagine what it's like for the girls today."
It's interesting because that reasoning still doesn't explain why models like Kendall or Gigi don't deserve the title of "supermodel."
But who knows, maybe Stephanie will take to Twitter like Rebecca and deny ever saying that!
Jerry O'Connell might be playing a hot male nanny on the small screen — but he's totally not down with having one IRL!
The 42-year-old actor — who shares 7-year-old twin girls Dolly and Charlie with wife Rebecca Romijn — told Us Weekly that he wouldn't be comfortable with someone like his character on Mistresses hanging around his family.
"I'm not sure if given the chance to hire myself as a manny in my family, I don't think I would allow that to happen. I'm sorry if that's closed-minded of me. I just wouldn't allow that — I wouldn't be comfortable with that. I would explain to my wife and to my children that I was not comfortable with a manny around."
What's he so afraid of?!
But, considering the crazy number of Nannygates we've been witnessing, we guess we can't blame him!
The NYC native also said it was strange being the only real-life parent on the female-driven cast:
And while other rumored frontrunner Jerry O'Connell admitted he has yet to be approached by the ABC morning program, he would definitely have a hard time turning the offer down!
Speaking at a press event on Monday for his upcoming role on Mistresses, the actor said it would be a "dream" to work next to Ripa every morning!
He told Us Weekly:
Momma bear must defend the cubs!
As we reported the other day, Romijn slammed Gigi and Kendall for being illegitimate supermodels — and the controversy blew up at the time!
Well, Yolanda revived it on Friday morning, by calling out Rebecca by name and tossing shade her way with a series of tweets defending the two young women!
Ch-ch-check out Yolanda's tweets (below):
The Skin Wars host recently got real with Entertainment Tonight about the gorgeous gals' modeling careers, and it doesn't seem like she's exactly impressed with KenGi!
"No one has proven yet that numbers of followers translates to revenue. So it is frustrating."
We totally get why the X-Men alum would be upset at the stars' success, considering she got her own start in the fashion industry.
But, the beauty straight-up says that she — and some of her unnamed colleagues — don't believe the girls are worthy of the title, adding:
