Exclusive: PETA’s Engagement Gift To Kim Kardashian And Kanye West



HipHollywood has learned exclusively that PETA plans on sending Kim Kardashian and Kanye West a very special engagement gift.

“At PETA, hope springs eternal, and so the group is sending Kimye a beautiful faux-mink throw to celebrate their engagement,” a representative for PETA told HipHollywood.

Just one day after accepting Kanye’s marriage proposal, the glowing 33-year-old was spotted leaving her hotel room in San Francisco rocking a fur coat.

“There’s no denying their history of wearing animal skins,” the animal rights organization told HH when asked what they thought of Kim’s choice of wardrobe.

“But you just never know what will inspire someone to have a change of heart. We hope that the love they have for each other will inspire them to open their hearts to those with nothing but the skin on their backs and who want only to keep it,” PETA’s president, Ingrid Newkirk said.

Kanye West proposed to his lady at San Francisco’s AT&T Park on Monday night. The rapper presented a 15-carat diamond ring in front of her closest friends and family members.



Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
