  • Kim Zolciak's Waist Is Tinier Than Cinderella's Thanks to Waist Training

    Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is the latest celeb to get in on the super-popular waist training trend. The 36-year-old reality star and mother of six took to Instagram on Wednesday to show off her unbelievably tiny waist, which she credits to No Waist Clique. "Soooo you guys finally talked me into trying a waist trainer!" she wrote. "I can't believe how tiny it makes my waist I'm obsessed with @nowaistclique waist trainer and it doesn't show through my clothes!" PHOTOS: Biggest Celebrity Weight Loss Transformations But keep in mind that Zolciak has been open in the past about getting a tummy tuck and breast augmentation after giving birth to twins Kaia Rose and Kane Ren in November 2013. Still, she's one of many stars to recently swear by the corset trend. Kim Kardashian started waist training last August, and her sister Khloe raised eyebrows just last week when she showed off her own colorful Waist Gang Society waist trainer. The super-slim Jessica Alba was an early proponent of the trend, revealing that she wore a double corset for three months to get her famously toned body back after giving birth to her two daughters, Honor, 6, and Haven, 3. "I wore a double corset day and night for three months," Alba told Net-A-Porter magazine in April 2013. "It was sweaty, but worth it. ... It was brutal; it's not for everyone." Though not everyone is a fan. Cinderella star Lily James has come under fire in recent weeks for her tiny waistline in the Disney movie and promotional materials. Critics are crying Photoshop, but the actress claims that it's her natural slim look -- with the aid of a corset of course. "I naturally have a really small waist and then the corset pulls it in and the skirt makes it bigger so I think the perspective makes it look even smaller," James told ET correspondent Jason Dundas at the film's Los Angeles premiere last Sunday.

  • Lost Civilizations, Found by Drones

    Beneath the barren New Mexican desert, there are remnants of an ancient Pueblo society that thrived some 1,000 years ago. John Kantner, an archaeologist from the University of North Florida, has surveyed the red sands for 20 years in search of ancient religious structures called kivas. He, like many other archaeologists, decided to use technology that is revolutionizing his field: drones. So Katner used drone surveillance along with thermal imaging to key in on subtle temperature differences while the structure heats and cools.

  • How E! Failed Giuliana Rancic in ‘Fashion Police’-Zendaya Debacle: What You Didn’t See (Exclusive)

    E! Entertainment has stood by silently while its longtime star Giuliana Rancic has been embroiled in controversy over comments she made on the Oscar edition of “Fashion Police” about Zendaya Coleman. Individuals close to Rancic told TheWrap that they’re disappointed about the way events unfolded in the wake of the comments as the network has still yet to admit its role in the debacle. Not only do the individuals say the joke was written for her, but “Fashion Police” producers edited out footage that would’ve given more context to the comments and possibly could’ve saved her from being characterized as a racist. Below, see the full “Fashion Police” joke about Zendaya that was taped.

  • Why Federal Workers Are Better Off Than the Rest of Us

    The federal government is America’s largest employer, with more than 2.1 million workers (and another 1.3 million active duty military personnel). A new Gallup survey finds those federal workers have it pretty good — or better than the rest of the workforce, at least. Gallup found that 44 percent of federal workers are “thriving” financially, compared with 34 percent of all other workers. Another 39 percent of government employees were classified as “struggling” — a rate that, while high, is still three percentage points lower than for non-government workers.
