If it's not one thing, it's another!

Beyonce's Ivy Park athleisure brand has been taking tons of heat since its inception… and now it's shooting down allegations that it's factory workers in Sri Lanka work under sweat shop-like conditions.

In a piece published by British tabloid The Sun earlier this month, the outlet accuses the company of relying on "poverty-stricken seamstresses" at the MAS Holdings factory. Additionally, the mag says the workers work up to 60 hours a week and earn 4.30 pounds — or $6.17 — a day.

Up, up, and away… from CBS!

The CW can finally say they're the home of FOUR superhero shows now that Supergirl has officially switched channels for Season Two!

We'd heard rumors that America's most watched network was thinking about throwing away their only drama that actually attracted a younger demographic… but we didn't think they were ever going to go through with it.

Well, we were proven wrong on Thursday when it was announced that Melissa Benoist will be joining the rest of Greg Berlanti's super lineup this Fall!

While this may seem like a shock to some fans, it's actually great news because not only does this ensures more crossovers with The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow, but it will also give the cast and crew more creative leeway!

However, we're also hearing Calista Flockhart is hesitant about staying on, seeing as production will be moving from El Lay to Vancouver… but we guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Are U super stoked about Supergirl's new home??

This skinny girl is full of rage!

Fans of Real Housewives of New York are probably aware Bethenny Frankel has put a lot of time and effort into making Sonja Morgan a better businesswoman.

However, after numerous failed attempts at selling clothes, toasters, and anything else she could get her hands on, it looks like Sonja has officially decided to get into a much more lucrative field… BETHENNY'S!!!

In a teaser for next Wednesday's all-new episode, the Skinnygirl creator is beyond upset when she finds out that Sonja has created a new line of alcohol called Tipsy Girl.

While Sonja was smart enough to make her brand two words — as opposed to B's paltry, one-word label — we'd be pissed too if our best friend ripped off our baby without our permission!

However, we can tell by Sonja's crying she probably thought Bethenny was going to appreciate the sincerest form of flattery… LOLz!

Make Apprentice great again!

We think Arnold Schwarzenegger is the perfect choice to take over for Donald Trump as the host on this season of Celebrity Apprentice.

And in the first poster for the upcoming eighth season of the NBC celeb competition, the Governator has never looked more heroic riding in on a white horse!

E! News dropped the first look of the True Lies star (quite literally) taking the reigns from his predecessor — letting us know it's officially time for The NEW Celebrity Apprentice!

But Arnie isn't the only newcomer to the reality competition — as we reported, Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba, Warren Buffett, and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer will all be dealing with the celebrity contestants.

As for the new boss, we just can't wait to find out if Schwarzenegger will tell contestants they're "terminated" when they get fired from the show! LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out the full image (below) and catch the NEW Celebrity Apprentice this fall on NBC!

Iggy Azalea Hit With $1.5 Million Lawsuit By Producer Who Claims To Have Nurtured The Singer's Career

Uh oh.

Iggy Azalea just got slapped with a big time lawsuit for not giving credit where credit is allegedly due.

In a new $1.5 million lawsuit filed by Jon Jon Traxx, the 25-year-old has failed to come through on an agreement made back in 2013 when the singer and the Atlanta producer terminated their contract together.

According to TMZ, Traxx says he nurtured the beginning of Iggy's career after they signed a record deal back in 2009. He claims his work helped Nick Young's fiancée score her current contract with Def Jam.

Apparently, the Aussie rapper completely stopped talking to Traxx after she made it big — and never delivered upon the agreed compensation.

No comment yet from Iggy's camp.

This is pretty shady, if true!!

We'll let you know as soon as more deets are available.
