Oh Jesus, this is rough.

So apparently Khloe Kardashian was once told by her family that her weight was hurting their brand, and we’re really quite annoyed about it.

Speaking to a contestant on her reality weight loss show, Revenge Body, the mum-to-be just casually mentioned how the Kardashians thought her body would make there empire crumble into a pile of ash and highlighter dust.

“I’m a huge believer of it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it… my family said ‘Khloe, you got to lose weight cause you’re really hurting the brand’,” she recalled.

“I understand that was coming from my management side of my family, but it does hurt.”

Damn right it would’ve hurt.

It's been almost three years since we, The People have seen Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie out and about at the same event.

Last seen together at the Critics Choice Awards in early 2015, it could be a coincidence, a scheduling issue or a result of the whole 'Team Angelina, Team Jen' saga.

But the Aniston/Jolie drought will end on Sunday, with both women to appear at the 2018 Golden Globes, The Mirror reports.

Aside from being married to a man named Brad Pitt at different points in their lives, these two intelligent, talented women have something else in common these days - a hatred for Harvey Weinstein.

Jolie has been very vocal about her experiences with the disgraced film producer, and Aniston recently donated $500,000 to the Time's Up campaign.

So we might just see them together more often in the near future.

3. Oprah's dog is afraid of flying and it's melting our hearts.

OK so we're not entirely sure about the legalities around taking pets on planes - do they need seat belts? What about their in-flight refreshments? - but these photos of Oprah comforting her doggo is the cutest thing you'll see all week.

According to O's best mate, Gayle (one name, like Madonna), Luke is a nervous flyer and needed cuddles from his mum to get through it in one piece.

"Nervous flyer Luke on board! Mom to the rescue swipe left to see who mom is & how she makes everything better... stars they’re just like US!," she captioned the sweet pics on Instagram.

Man, we really wish Oprah could come and cuddle us like this right now.

Also, LUKE'S PILLOW HAS A DOG ON IT THAT LOOKS LIKE HIM.

That's... that's it.

4. Margot Robbie's family told her to 'get a real job'.

It's hard to imagine a world in which Margot Robbie is not a movie star. But according to the 27-year-old from Queensland, her parents didn't really take her acting career all that seriously.

“My family has no connection to the entertainment industry whatsoever, so when I started acting, everyone was like, ‘That’s fun, but when are you going to actually get a real job? And that went on for years….” she told Vogue Magazine.

It sounds a lot like what our parents said when we decided to take another gap year, or were too lazy to update our Year Nine resume. Only, a 'real job' for us 100 per cent did not involve being a mega celebrity or making millions of dollars.

Thankfully, she kept going with the whole acting thing. It worked out well for her, yeah?

5. Ellen DeGeneres had the best response to Eric Trump's bizarre conspiracy theory.

How good are conspiracy theories? Especially ones that are so ridiculous, so completely unbelievable, some people might actually believe them to be true.

President Trump's son, Eric has gone and come up with one of those, claiming Ellen DeGeneres is not a lovable day time talk show host like we all thought.

You see, she's actually part of a government conspiracy group believed to be trying to undermine Trump's presidency called Deep State. And all because she reportedly popped up in his 'suggested follows' on Twitter.

Upon seeing Eric's tweet linking her to the group, DeGeneres took a few minutes out from her show on Thursday to clear some things up.

"I have some questions,” DeGeneres said. “First of all, which one is Eric? Did he kill the elephant or the cheetah? Which one? Second, what is ‘deep state’? Is it near Dollywood? Because I’m in if it is."

She continued: "I am sorry to disappoint you; I am not part of the deep state. Even if somebody wanted me to be involved, I don’t have that kind of time. I’ve got my gay-agenda meetings on Mondays. On Wednesday, Beyoncé and I host an Illuminati brunch, and then Portia [de Rossi] and I on the weekends are desperately trying to have a baby."

There you have it, mystery solved. 'CC Eric Trump.
