Cindy Crawford’s daughter is her double

Cindy Crawford has a 13-year-old daughter named Kaia Jordan Gerber and as you can see from the above photo, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Kaia is a model herself and has already had some pretty big campaigns, and something tells me she might follow into her mom’s footsteps as a REALLY successful model within the next 5-10 years.

Cindy and husband Rande Gerber also have a 15-year-old son named Presley Walker, who is also pretty handsome and could easily be a model:

Tyra Banks’ Makeup Is A Little Scary

Tyra Banks decided to dress up as 3 major supermodels from past, present, and future (or whatever): Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss (that’s supposed to be Tyra as Kate above), and Cara Delevingne. I think she looks great as Cindy Crawford:

But her Cara Delevingne makeup is just frightening:

Man, Tyra just isn’t good with makeup, is she? Of course she didn’t do it herself. This was all part of a photo project done for Udo Spreitzenbarth for New York Fashion Week. More info is here. Tyra tweeted these photos along with updates like,

Stop by my #NYFW photo tribute to 15 #Supermodels, #Tyra15, 2 see me transformed in2 Kate Upton, Karlie Kloss & more: bit.ly/1apClRq 

I really wanna see her as Kate Upton, Ms. Model of the Year.

I think Tyra has their essence down but the makeup is so very White Chicks.

Cindy Crawford’s Can Still Rock The Cover of ‘Vogue’

This post is all about giving props to 45-year old Cindy Crawford, who’s rocking the cover of Vogue Mexico like it’s the early 90s again.

Cindy was pretty much the most beautiful lady in the world when I was growing up (I even named my pet crawfish, Cindy Crawfish, after her,) and it’s amazing to see that in the time it’s taken me to get boobs (sorta,) graduate high school, go to college and work for seven years, that she hasn’t changed one freakin’ bit.

Don’t get it twisted, this isn’t a “Wow, she looks great for her age,” post, this is a “What the hell has she been doing to keep herself looking this good over the years and can she bottle it and sell it to me, please,”-type of thing. I mean, I knew there was some crazy stuff going on over at her house, but not straight-up magic.

Damn, Cindy! Do you, girl! Let’s see you rock out like this in another 20 years, okay?!

Cindy Crawford’s Extortionist to Spend Two Years in Jail

Man, this was such a weird story. Remember when some dude was trying to sell pictures of Cindy Crawford’s 7-year-old daughter bound to a chair and gagged? (It was part of a game of Cops & Robbers.) Every single news outlet he approached passed on the photos because there is apparently still a shred of dignity in celebrity journalism. Then he tried repeatedly to get money out of Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber in exchange for the return of the photos. You can read our full story on it here.

Anyway, the gross dude, Edis Kayalar, an aspiring model, was sentenced to two years behind bars by a German court.

In a statement Wednesday, Crawford and Gerber said, “We want to express our gratitude to the FBI, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles and the German law-enforcement authorities for their coordination and efforts in this case.”

Kayalar, an aspiring German model, was charged with one count of extortion in U.S. District Court in November and surrendered to German authorities one week later. His case was tried overseas because Germany does not extradite its nationals.

Ew, I’m glad this grossness is over. Good riddance to you, jackass. The sad thing is that you’re kind of hot, and I’d probably be happy if you hit on me in a bar, until someone came over and was like, “Hey, uh, Beet? You know that’s the guy who tried to blackmail Cindy Crawford with pictures of her 7-year-old daughter bound and gagged? You know that, right?” And suddenly you would be NOT AT ALL HOT.

Suspect in Cindy Crawford Case Beat & Raped His Own Wife

Earlier this week, Beet reported on a creepy case in which Edis Kayalar, an acquaintance of Cindy Crawford’s ex-nanny, tried to sell TMZ and a few other celeb gossip outlets a picture of Crawford’s daughter gagged and tied to a chair that was taken during a game of cops and robbers. Well, the human cesspool that is Edis Kayalar goes even deeeper. In a March 2008 restraining order, Kayalar’s ex-wife claims that he beat her bloody and raped her several times during the course of their 3 month long marriage. The details make for some pretty disturbing reading, so continue at your own risk.

Freckmann claims her horror began a day before they wed on Nov. 15, 2007, when Kayalar confessed he was cheating.

“Talking escalated into a heated argument in which [Kayalar] kicked a hole into my wall,” Freckmann wrote.

Kayalar stormed out, but returned the next morning and the couple got married.

The next month, however, Freckmann said he got physical after she confronted him over photos “of the girl he had cheated on me with” on a trip to Germany.

“Our arguing became physical,” she said in court papers. Kayalar also taunted her and made mocking lists titled, “How to Please the Princess.”

“He has also raped me while I have been asleep and awake,” she claimed.

Freckmann said Kayalar, a native of Germany, told her, “The only reason he married her was for a green card.” She claimed he was so controlling he wouldn’t let her go to the bathroom alone.

On Feb. 12, 2008, Freckmann tried to kick Kayalar out. But she said he did not go quietly. “He pushed me up against the wall, slapped me and yelled at me,” she stated.

After a struggle, she said, she escaped and called cops. Kayalar left, but the next day “he broke into my home, stating I had stolen his fake identification,” she wrote.

“I wouldn’t speak to him so he punched, choked, restrained me, and then he continued to beat me and then rape me,” she claimed. “He said if he killed me no one would ever find out and he could just leave the country.”

Freckmann alleged she passed out after he choked her and raped her “with a foreign object.”

Prosecutors declined to press charges because of lack of evidence, a source said.

Yet another female acquaintance of Kaylar’s claims that he beat her up after she refused to have sex with him. In that case, the charges were dropped because the terrified woman didn’t show up for court after Kayalar threatened to kill her.

WTF Is Going on Over at Cindy Crawford’s House?

Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber and Children Kaia and Presley, PIctures Photos

This is a bizarre and unexpected story. Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber filed court documents saying that Edis Kayalar, a friend of their former nanny, was threatening to sell the photo of the couple’s freakishly adorable 7-year-old daughter, Kaia. The photo depicts her “bound to a chair and gagged” as part of the nanny’s “cops and robbers game.” She is wearing shorts and a T-shirt in the photo.

I read the entire legal filing (it’s on TMZ), and this is a really screwed up story. Basically, the nanny had showed this Kayalar person the photo she took, and I guess her plan was to stick it on Cindy and Rande’s door as some sort of retaliation for being fired. But she decided not to, and then Kayalar stole the photo and made a bunch of phone calls to Cindy and Rande, threatening to sell it to the tabloids. They immediately contacted the authorities, and at one point Rande even gave the guy $1000 for the photograph. But then he wound up getting deported to Germany, and started demanding a bunch more money. The FBI got involved, and eventually it wound up in court.

TMZ claims that someone tried to sell them the same photo six weeks ago, and they passed, so I wonder how many other news organizations passed on this photo. Tabloids will do some dirty things, but publishing upsetting pictures of an innocent 7-year-old girl seems to be beneath everybody. Good for them!

I guess what really scares me here is how hard it is even for really, really rich people to find a trustworthy nanny. I mean, what the hell kind of nanny plays a game in which she gags your little kid and takes photos? And then responds to being let go by showing the photos to creepy people? Sooo scary and messed up. You can’t trust nannies! That’s why I’m just going to send my kids to boarding school.
