Hilary Duff’s neighbor sounds like kind of an asshole, but aren’t there, like, co-op boards and email chains for that type of shit? If you live in Soho?


On Wednesday, Duff published a series of Instagram Stories complaining about her neighbor Dieter Addison, who, according to Page Six, is a young “German beer scion.” Duff told her 9 million followers that Addison “smokes cigarettes and weed all night long,” until her apartment reeks of it. She also indulged in some ad hominem attacks, saying, ‘We know your parents pay your rent. We know you’ve never worked a day in your life—must be nice. Have some respect for your neighbors who work hard to live in the building.”

Addison did not take it well. He told Page Six on Wednesday that he’s hiring lawyers over the pot smoking allegations, which he says are false, in fact, he says he’s sober and works three jobs. He added, “I am from a very private German family.”

In an article published a little later in the day by Page Six, Addison also claimed that Duff’s boyfriend, Matthew Koma, tried to punch him in the face that morning. “I tried to avoid his fist, but he hit me on the head,” Addison said. “So I pushed hm out of the apartment, but I did not assault him.”

Have these people, like, had a conversation?

Mindy Kaling wants her five-month-old daughter to get used to the concept of working out from an early age…perhaps because she’s speaking to Shape Magazine? Kaling told Shape:

“I’m excited for my daughter to see me work out and to know that it’s a normal part of my life. I wasn’t raised that way, and I think when you don’t see that kind of thing as a kid, it’s really hard to pick it up…I also want her to be confident. I was not that way as a child, and I want my daughter to be really confident all the time.”

Neither of my parents exercise on purpose. One owned a business which kept them fairly active for about a decade, and neither really eats any substantial amount of food ... but they did not exercise when I lived with them, and their comprehension of nutrition is minimal at best. Finding a combination of food and activity which makes sense for myself as an adult has been an uphill battle, in part because I had no idea how fucked their model was until bad habits were already solidified.

If Kaling just means modeling healthy behavior, I get what she’s saying. If she’s referring to a Hollywood X-Treme Diet/Workout combo, that’s pretty messed up.
