Claire Danes has bodyguard on set of Homeland

We wonder if the filming of season 4 of Homeland feels a little too real for Claire Danes, who has employed a bodyguard to keep her safe on shoot in Cape Town, South Africa.

The hit TV show is using sites around Cape Town to stand in for Pakistan, where the show is largely set this season.


“The actors have to be protected against potential kidnapping and theft, especially when they film in known dangerous areas like Salt River,” reported a set insider.

“They could kidnap one of the cast and hold them for ransom, but they watch the cast like hawks. We know where they are every minute,” said the insider.

The source also said that the security company is armed with “batons and other weapons, to make sure fights don’t break out and the production’s cars aren’t broken into”.

Kris Jenner says she taught Kim and Rob to deal with weight jibes when they were kids

Momager Kris Jenner appeared on The Dr Oz Show to promote her new cookbook, and he asked her how Kim and Rob deal with people talking about their weight.

“Everybody’s a critic. So I tried to teach them self-esteem… when they were younger. They all went through a chubby stage.” Kris answered, 


“Putting the girls and Rob on the magazines sells them but I taught the kids a long time ago that it really starts with when they were younger and how I’ve really tried hard to raise strong daughters,” she said.

Adding: “And give them a sense of self esteem, you know, a really good self esteem. When they grew up and when they went through puberty they were just any other kids, it was that real chubby stage everybody went through it, they had braces, they were awkward, Rob was chubby and that’s when your kids need you the most.”
