A fur frenzy, a 90's throwback and a sheer shocker -- the stars are rocking all the wrong trends this week! Kris Jenner raised some eyebrows when she hit the red carpet at the National Television Awards in London on Wednesday, sporting a tight white Emilio Pucci gown with a giant fur coat by Ralph Rucci.

Christina Milian missed the mark when she made an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live" on Sunday, rocking a nude suede midi dress with cutouts that exposed her tummy and cleavage.The reality star's body looks amazing in the figure-hugging frock, but the entire ensemble screams bad 90's fashion. This throwback should have stayed in the back of her closet. »

The cast of NBC’s “The Slap” answered questions Friday about the upcoming series’ defining moment — for one, “Exactly how many times did Harry (Zachary Quinto) slap misbehaving young child Hugo (Dylan Schombing)?” During the Television Critics Association panel in Pasadena, California, reporters also wanted to know how showrunners explained the abusive moment to young actors on set.
“When we got on the set, they had read the scenes. They had their parents there, so they were kind of gamed. They pretty much slid right in, »

Turns out that NBC’s eight-episode event drama The Slap really isn’t about “the slap” at all. It’s about something much deeper and darker. At Hector’s (Peter Sarsgaard) 40th birthday party, his hotheaded cousin Harry (Zachary Quinto) slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. The stunning incident sets off a chain of events that divides friends and family, and uncovers long-buried secrets.
