It’s well known that wedding guests are generally not supposed to wear white to the occasion, but are there other major no-nos when it comes to how guests dress?  And do other guests have the right to enforce those restrictions?

These are questions being asked by a New Zealand woman this week after she was abused by other guests at a wedding she attended for wearing a short peach-coloured bandage dress.

In a post which was shared on radio station The Breeze Waikato’s Facebook page, a friend of the woman explained: “A friend wore this dress to a wedding in the weekend and got targeted big time.”

“She got treated rudely by other women at the wedding who saw her as a target for wearing this dress.”

“A woman came up behind her and slapped her on the bum and said it was on a dare from a group of other women who were watching and snickering.”

“Someone else seemingly purposely spilt a beer on her.”

“She's amazed that grown women could be so immature and such bullies.”

“She wants to know – Did she bring ANY of this on herself by wearing this dress to a wedding?  Your thoughts?”

As anyone who’s familiar with the web’s infamous comment sections would expect, the post received a mixed response, with some people praising the woman’s confidence, while others suggesting she should have covered up.

One Facebook-user wrote: “The other women are just jealous. Personally I'd never wear a dress like that, simply because I don't have the figure for it and definitely don't have the confidence to wear it. But if she's got it, why not be proud of it. Least she's not wearing white and trying to upstage the bride!”

But another said: “Too slutty for a wedding… that sort of dress is ok on a date night or for the bedroom but NOT for a wedding. Its bad form to outshine the bride."

While it's never okay to abuse someone for what they wear, are there limits to what wedding guests should wear?

In a shocking turn of events, Amber Heard has filed and been granted a temporary restraining order against Johnny Depp.

The model filed for divorce earlier this week citing "irreconcilable differences" for the split and now claims she has been the victim of domestic abuse.

Johnny's lawyers have already responded and they are denying the alleged assaults. They are saying that her restraining order "appears to be in response to the negative media attention she received earlier this week".

The 30-year-old showed up in court to file the order with bruises on her face, TMZ reports.

In a photo obtained by the website, Amber is seen with bruises on her face, which she claims were given to her last Saturday after Johnny threw an iPhone at her face.



With fame, comes fans, and apparently with fans, comes a lot of abuse.

Niall Horan took to Twitter last night to totally hit out at a group of fans who have been sending him really mean messages on social media.

He admitted that the people in question have been keeping him up at night and have "been saying the worst things ever."

To be honest, Niall is such a sweetie that we'd wonder why anyone would ever say a bad word about him!

Check out his tweets below:



Fans of lovable Modern Family star, Sarah Hyland, were left shocked yesterday when it was revealed that she had filed a restraining order against her ex boyfriend, Matt Propok.

The couple went out for five years and even starred in Disney movie, Geek Charming together so it came as a surprise to many to learn that Matt had been violent towards his girlfriend, with Sarah describing the terrifying incident in court files: “He places both of his hands around my throat and began to choke me. His grip was so tight that I could not breathe or speak. I was scared and in fear for my life.”

Following the leaking of the restraining order to the media by TMZ, Sarah has sent a message to her fans through an attorney asking for privacy as she goes through what must a difficult and scary time for her: “The document filed speak for themselves. Out of respect for the court, the process and all parties, I have advised Ms. Hyland not to comment on the matter. We request that you respect the parties’ privacy during this time.”

Our thoughts and well-wishes are with you, Sarah – stay strong!


Have you woken up recently with the mother of all hangovers and belly full of regret and thought ‘maybe I have a problem’?

Well, University of Leicester scientists found that by asking patients two questions they were able to correctly identify alcohol and/or drug abuse in 87.2% of cases.

The questions they asked were:

  • How often do you have six or more drinks on one occasion?
  • As a result of your drinking or drug use, did anything happen in the last year that you wish didn’t happen?

They didn’t explain what kind of answers the people who were abusing alcohol gave, but we imagine if you’re answering yes to these questions every weekend, or more than once a week, then you definitely need to give the party lifestyle a bit of a rest for a while. 



It has been revealed that Rob Kardashian has been self-medicating for months with powerful prescription painkillers.

According to a source, Rob was doing heavy drugs in the weeks leading up to Kim’s wedding:

“He’d just lie around his place smoking weed, doing drugs, watching movies and eating. He said he ‘needed’ the pills.”

The source also revealed that Rob has been using a highly addictive cocktail of prescription-strength cough syrup, Sprite and a Jolly Rancher candy that can cause seizures and even death.

The source said:

“The reason he left Kim’s wedding wasn’t just that he was embarrassed to pose in photos,

“He only knows how to party to excess. He is so depressed and needs help.”

We really hope Rob gets the help he needs.
