Wendy Williams posted a birthday tribute to her son filled with keepsakes from when he was born. But the sentiments of Wendy's post wasn't well received by her Instagram followers.

The 56-year-old daytime talk show Diva honored son Kevin Hunter Jr.'s 20th birthday with an Instagram tribute featuring keepsakes she'd held onto since he was born.

"Today is my biggest day! Son Kevin & I are celebrating his 20th birthday... He's in Miami & I'm in NYC, but love never stops," she wrote in the photo caption. "If you look closely you'll see remains of 1st hair cut, my cerclage is on sneaker, like a mom... I DO have all his teeth.

"I'm not a fan of cake, but today OK... for my son? What are you doing?"

After Googling "cerclage," some of Wendy's followers expressed their disgust.

"I'm more concerned about the cerclage ... it's the stitch(es) that hold your cervix closed. Whhhhyyyyy," wrote one IG user.

Another wrote, "What in the voodoo witchcraft is all that hair."

But others were more understanding, particularly those with an only child, like Wendy.

"I don't see anything wrong with this post still have two of my sons hair from their first hair cut and baby teeth and pics," wrote an IG user.

Kevin Jr. attends college in Miami.

Question: Did you save keepsakes and mementos from when your child was born?

Fashion designer Michael Costello drew backlash on Instagram when he commented under a Kylie Jenner post after she tagged the designer of her birthday dress.

The drama ensued after Kylie posted an Instagram image of her 23rd birthday dress on Wednesday, August 12.

She captioned the image: "thank you my love @olivier_rousteing for the most perfect bday dress..."
 

Costello was outraged when he saw Kylie tag the designer of her birthday dress. Costello has designed dresses for Kylie for free - and he never got a shout out from her on social media.

Costello took to Instagram and posted a lengthy comment on Jenner's post, calling her out for not always tagging fashion designers like him in her social media posts.

Costello, pictured with Nicole Scherzinger, said he's not the only one who designed free dresses for Kylie and never got tagged in her posts.

"For example, Bryan Hearns makes a lot of dresses for Kylie and no one ever gives him any credit and he deserves it. Makeup artists and stylists are getting tagged but the clothing designers are not."

Costello's outburst went viral on social media, and stars such as Lala Kent and Savannah Chrisley shared their negative experiences with him.

Kent wrote: "I literally blew him up to make my custom wedding dress-he would have gotten all the 'tags & @'s' he's talking about. But I never heard back from him. why? Because I'm not 'big enough.' So cool out, Costello - you do the same s--t."

Costello apologized for his meltdown, telling Us Weekly, "I have no issues or beef with Kylie Jenner."

"I love her. The reason I commented on her post is because she is often tagging some designers but not others."

He continued:

"In regards to me, there is no bad air. Kylie has worn my outfits about four or five times. She didn't tag me in posts but her stylist has and she acknowledges me in person and says how much she appreciates my work. I just want the public to see what is happening with the designers and how we are often doing work for free for no credit."

Question: Was Costello wrong to call out Kylie for not tagging designers who give her free dresses?

Georgia's governor lifted restrictions so Georgians are free to move about the state without face masks. But residents in other states are not so lucky.

Instagram users were outraged when they saw photos of reality TV personalities Tameka "Tiny" Harris, Antonia "Toya" Johnson and Rasheeda attending Kandi Burruss' 44th "Mask Off" birthday bash without face masks on in southwest Atlanta.

Toya posted photos from the gathering which she captioned: "I stepped outside today for a quick second to show the birthday girl some love..... Happy Birthday @kandi..."
 

One irate Instagram user wrote:

"Didn't None Of Yall Have On Masks And We Wonder Why The Cases Are Rising Still Especially In Atlanta Smh,' and someone else praised Rasheeda's looks: Man I know Rasheeda was hot... especially with that hoodie on. I would have been sweating bullets."

In fact, Georgia's coronavirus cases have gone down since Gov. Brian Kemp lifted the restrictions.

Meanwhile, Kandi shared a photo of her family after the event. "I haven't been going out either! I was so happy to see y'all. FRFR!... Thank you."

We love, LOVE the picture of Kandi's daughter, Riley, rocking her natural hair in an afro after wearing hair weave all her life!

Unrecognizable pop singer Adele thanked essential healthcare workers while celebrating her 32nd birthday with a new photo on Instagram.com.

In her first Instagram post since she lost 100 pounds last year, the Grammy-winning star shared a photo of her new look while thanking front line workers and healthcare personnel for their dedication to others during the much-politicized pandemic.

"Thank you for the birthday love. I hope you're all staying safe and sane during this crazy time. I’d like to thank all of our first responders and essential workers who are keeping us safe while risking their lives! You are truly our angels...
2020 okay bye thanks x."

The singer transformed herself while taking a hiatus from recording. Adele was said to be depressed following her failed marriage to ex-husband Simon Konecki.

Adele and Konecki share custody of 7-year-old son Angelo.

A source told PEOPLE Adele followed a strict diet and workout routine that included cross-training and full-body Pilates.

"She got to the point where she didn't feel great," said the source. "She knew she had to change something because she wants to be the healthiest mom possible."

Blue Ivy Carter turned 8 years old today. The frenzy surrounding the firstborn daughter of Beyonce and Jay-Z began when Beyonce rubbed her belly bump onstage at the 2011 MTV Video Awards.

Photo by Splash News

After Blue Ivy's birth, photographers waited patiently for Beyonce or Jay-Z to bring the baby outside so they could snap photos of her feet or hands. Photos of any part of Blue Ivy's body sold for hundreds of dollars. Exclusive photos of Blue's face would command $100,000 or more.

For the first 2 years of her life Blue Ivy was hidden under blankets and other inanimate objects. She was dubbed "the saddest little girl in NYC."

When Beyonce and Jay-Z finally stopped hiding Blue Ivy, the public weighed in on her looks and her natural hair - which people hated with a passion.

There are reports that the gossip about Blue's hair, or whether she was really a boy, hurt Beyonce and Jay-Z.

In response to the gossip, Blue Ivy did not leave the house until Bey's glam team worked their magic on her. The results were nothing short of spectacular.

Blue Ivy has grown into a beautiful little girl. But even now her looks are still up for debate. Black Twitter dragged 2 rude journalists who thought it was funny to disparage a child's looks.
