President Barack Obama reached out to Justin Bieber this week for assistance.

It all started when Obama made a visit to Ground Zero soon after Osama Bin Laden was killed. There, he met 14-year old Payton Wall, who had written to the President, told him of her father dying on 9/11 and also expressed her affection for a certain 17-year old singer.

Obama reportedly told Wall that he knew Bieber and would organize an introduction between her and her idol. Many reporters and publications mocked the President for making such a promise.

But it looks like it will come true.

Nicki Minaj is about to really hit the big time: she's going on tour with Britney Spears this summer.

In the latest issue of Out, the star is asked if she has any special kinship with the iconic pop singer and replies in the affirmative.

"I feel like she has experienced life as an underdog, and I feel like my whole career I've been the underdog," Minaj said. "I think that it just goes to show that when you are a strong woman, at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. You bounce back from whatever. And I think she’s probably gone through 10 times whatever I’ve gone through."

Nicki went on to praise Britney and the way she's bounced back from a few difficult years:

"The fact that she came back out with just so much fire inspires me, and it inspires young women and people all over the world. It just inspires you. A lot of my fans feel like they are the underdog and feel like they are the people who aren’t ever accepted for themselves, or who are laughed at or poked fun at forever. It just goes to show that once you keep at whatever it is you’re doing, people may not like you, people may not love you, but they will have to respect you at the end of the day. And that respect is all that matters."

Minaj and Spears will kick off their tour June 17 in Sacramento.

Bethenny Frankel won't be bullied.

The reality star is being sued for $100 million by a management company that claims she cheated it out of a commission, but she's made it very clear that she'll fight every charge in it.

"Life is good for me with all the things that are most important, namely family," Frankel said in response. "But let's be clear, I am a strong woman, and I am not afraid and won't back down when I'm bullied by something with zero merit. Success is earned by hard work, not taking advantage of others."

Referring to the lawsuit as "frivolous," Frankel refers to Doug Wald - the head of the firm that is suing her - as "someone with his hand out, who did nothing to earn it."

"We are exploring all of our options, including filing counterclaims against these people," she said.

Seth Meyers is a very funny man. Seriously, did you listen to his remarks at The White House Correspondents' Dinner?

Now, according to The National Enquirer, homemaking maven Martha Stewart is the latest to benefit from this comedian's sense of humor.

A star on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Alexis Bellino has shared almost everything about her life with viewers. Except this:

She struggled for years with anorexia and bulimia.

"I just didn't want to eat," Bellino says in the latest issue of Life & Style, saying the problem started at age 12 when her parents split. "Looking back, I think it was my way of controlling something at a time when everything else in my life was out of my control."

During her freshman year in college, the purging began, which led to six years of throwing up many meals and feeling "heavy," Alexis says.
