According to the app description, Begroupd is the first “group-messaging app to put decision-making in the palm of your hand.” The description also states that concept allows users to “simply ask a question within your group chats with Begroupd’s decision-making tools and get instant input from friends and family. Use polls, ratings, RSVPs or yes/no’s to collect feedback about any topic you want within a familiar chat environment.”

Khloe, who has clearly been beta testing and using the app for some time now, revealed via Twitter and Instagram on Monday night that her “family’s groupchats are insane! for real. Crazy groupchats are getting a makeover, stay tuned!”

Khloe isn’t the only famous sister to dive into the tech world. Last year, Kim Kardashian-West released a video game app called “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.” The game, which allows users to search for fame and fortune, is reported to make $200 million this year alone.


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.
