Can we talk Brielle Biermann? The 20-year-old daughter of Real Housewives of Atlanta and Don’t Be Tardy star Kim Zolciak Biermann is having a moment right now. One of the best parts of following her mom’s life on reality TV is seeing her relationship with her hilarious, lookalike daughter. Brielle’s stunning, and loves herself some social media. Plus, she’s tough as nails. Even after having a wardrobe malfunction on Snapchat couldn’t bring her down. Total inspiration, right there.
Kaia Gerber is tearing up the modeling industry. At just 16-years-old, she’s going head to head with some of the most accomplished models in the scene. Kaia’s OG supermodel Cindy Crawford‘s daughter, and we’re so glad that she followed in her famous mother’s footsteps! Did you know Kaia and Cindy opened Chanel fashion shows 20 years apart? How cool is that!
There’s no doubt that 13 Reasons Why was the breakout hit show of the year. Teens and adults alike were riveted by the tragic story of Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford), who leaves tapes for 13 classmates to listen to — because she accuses them of being the reason she killed herself. Katherine is sensational in the heartbreaking series, and so is her costar, Dylan Minnette, who plays Clay, the friend who’s secretly in love with her. It’s clear after the last episode of the first season (after we dried all our tears) that they’re going to get so much work going forward. And we can’t wait for season 2.
Aside from demodogs and bitchin’ punk Eleven, one of the best parts of Stranger Things season 2 was the introduction of Billy, the stereotypical 80s teenage bully who only served to mercilessly antagonize the gang, and everyone else at the school. Enter Dacre Montgomery, the smokin’ hot actor who played Billy to perfection. He’s like a cross between young Rob Lowe, an angel, and a hair metal album come to life. His Stranger Things mullet is inexcusable, but we’re willing to overlook it. His costar, however…Joe Keery has better hair than all of us combined. We loved Steve’s journey between seasons, going from a terrible jock boyfriend to caring babysitter. Both Joe and Dacre are incredibly talented, and we can’t wait to see what they do next!
