Kim Kardashian West 'grateful' for Paris robbery

Like they say, when life gives you lemons, start on that lemonade. Page Six reports "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star Kim Kardashian, 38, revealed on ET Online's "The Alec Baldwin Show" she's glad she got robbed in Paris two years ago. The woman who's made a career of putting everything out there for public view admitted that before the robbery, "I would always talk about my stuff. There was a lot of me that measured who I was by how much I had." Since the 2016 trauma, Kardashian West said she's become considerably more circumspect about her wealth. She used to think, "Oh, I’m worth so much," she admitted. "So that changed in me. And that needed to change in me, so I’m grateful for the experience.”

Mariah Carey at the Fox in March 

Mariah Carey, 48, will bring the world tour behind her new album "Caution" to Detroit's Fox Theatre on March 8, officials announced Monday. Tickets for Carey's concert go on sale at 10 a.m. Oct. 26. But Citi cardholders and members of Honey B. Fly, Carey's official fan community, can gain access to pre-sale tickets beginning at 10 a.m. Oct. 23.  The show will mark Carey's first local visit since a January 2010 Fox concert. She was due to perform with Lionel Richie at The Palace of Auburn Hills in April 2017, but that tour date was canceled. A Nov. 2017 Christmas-themed concert at Caesars Windsor was also axed. "Caution," Carey's 15th full-length studio album, is due out Nov. 15. 

Loretta Lynn back home after hospitalization 

The queen of country music Loretta Lynn, 86, couldn't accept her award at the Oct. 17 CMT Artists of the Year Awards ceremony Oct. 17 because of a brief hospitalization, the singer/songwriter confirmed this weekend according to People. "I was so disappointed to have missed it because I was sick. After a brief hospital visit, I’m feeling better now and enjoying a weekend of resting up at home," Lynn wrote on Facebook, without identifying her ailment.  Actress and close friend Sissy Spacek accepted the honor on Lynn’s behalf at the Nashville event. 

Don't feed Canadian bears

Bears may love Tim Hortons donuts, but resist the urge to satisfy them -- at least while in British Columbia. People magazine reports Randy Scott and Megan Hiltz, who posted incriminating images on Facebook, were charged with attempting to feed "dangerous wildlife," a serious crime under the province's Wildlife Act, according to the B.C. Conservation Officer Service. The couple hand-fed a couple bears some of the coffee shop chain's donut holes, known as Timbits. As a result, Scott and Hiltz have a court date in Fort Nelson on Nov. 5. No word on whether the bears will testify in the pair's defense.
