• 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.

  • Double the Trouble Found Under Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano

    Hawaii's big, booming eruptions are born from just under Kilauea volcano's peak, a new study confirms. The results suggest that Kilauea volcano also taps a deeper source, because the shallower magma chambers are too tiny to account for all of the lava that has streamed across the island's surface since 1983. "The amount of magma is very small," said lead study author Aaron Pietruszka, a U.S. Geological Survey geologist based in Denver. The size of both magma chambers adds up to less than half a cubic kilometer (0.12 cubic miles) of molten rock, Pietruszka told Live Science.

  • The iPad Pro’s display might be unlike anything available on the market

    A plethora of 12.9-inch iPad Pro reports have hit the web in recent days, including reports that Apple has postponed the launch of the device in part because it’s working to fit the larger iPad with a full-sized USB port.

  • Portland woman sues restaurant over treatment during solo Valentine's dinner

    By Shelby Sebens PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - A Portland woman is suing a local restaurant owner and business manager for $100,000, saying she was booted out of the establishment on Valentine's Day because of her race and for dining alone, the woman said on Thursday.  Kathleen Hampton, who filed the lawsuit in Multnomah County Circuit Court last week, said she made reservations for two at Enzo’s Caffe Italiano on Valentine's Day in northeast Portland but ended up going alone when her husband was not hungry.  Hampton said she was seated at a table and given a complimentary glass of wine because she had to wait. Hampton also said she believes she was treated rudely because she is African-American.  “I was just in tears. I’ve never had anything like this happen to me before, especially in my community.”  Restaurant owner Enzo Lanzadoro, who is named in the suit along with business manager Nick Lanzadoro, said that is not what happened.  “Whatever she’s saying is totally fabricated and not true at all,” he told Reuters, adding that he established a policy for Valentine’s Day that the restaurant could have no open seats and so she was asked to move to the bar or outside seating.

  • Mexico running out of drug cartel big fish

    One by one, the Mexican government is taking down the country's most notorious drug cartel capos, leaving very few recognizable names on the most wanted list. Big fish with nicknames such as "El Chapo," "La Tuta," "Z-40," "El H" and "El Viceroy" have been captured since President Enrique Pena Nieto took office in December 2012. Zetas drug cartel leader Omar Trevino, alias "Z-42," joined the motley crew of captured capos Wednesday when he was arrested in a wealthy suburb of the northern industrial hub of Monterrey, leaving his gang without a clear successor. His arrest came just five days after the last known leader of the Knights Templar gang, Servando "La Tuta" Gomez, was detained by police in the western state of Michoacan.
