These darn celebrities…always up to something!
The most talked about celebrity news (in my opinion) includes a possible new couple alert, my campaign to set Britney Spears free and lots of babies.
Head over the Drexel University’s student newspaper The Triangle and catch up on what you missed this week!
You don’t come back from that
You know the Duggars, right? They are the family with 19 children and a show on TLC called “19 Kids and Counting.” This family incites rage to boil up inside me. I will spare you from the 20-minute tangent I have prepared about how/why they don’t use birth control…or at least the pull and pray method. Ahhh!
Anywho, this past week, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar announced that they are expecting their 20th child. You heard me…20th. Michelle Duggar who is 45 years old has got to be secretly pissed that Jim Bob knocked her up again. I mean really, who wants to be pregnant that many times?
“I was not thinking that God would give us another one, and we are just so grateful,” Michelle revealed on the “Today” show. Someone help me…I’m stumbling into a rage blackout.
Michelle – How do you keep track of the 19 kids you have now? Do they wear name tags? Are they color-coded? Just wondering.
Billy Crystal – hosting thy Oscars
When it was announced that Eddie Murphy was hosting the Oscars this year, I thought to myself “Oh great, I have to sit through three hours of him trying to be funny.” As you can probably tell, I’m not a fan of Eddie Murphy. Why? Mr. Murphy thought he could sass a Spice Girl…Ohh Hell No.
So how did Billy get back in the Oscar saddle? Brett Ratner (executive producer of the Oscars and Eddie’s pal) caused quite the scandal when he spewed a gay slur at the “Tower Heist” premier of all places. Since that isn’t okay whatsoever, Ratner was forced out of his job as producer and Eddie bounced as well.
I was actually very happy about the news that Eddie was out and Bill Crystal is in. In all honestly, I would rather Alec Baldwin…because who doesn’t love a Baldwin <3.
This will be Crystal’s 9th time hosting. He announced the new gig via Twitter (where else?) “Am doing the Oscars so the young woman in the pharmacy will stop asking my name when I pick up prescriptions. Looking forward to the show.”
Hopefully I will be giggling at the big show as much as I giggled at this tweet.
Justin Timberlake…what a gentleman
First of all…I would like to say why didn’t I think of this? Second of all…Corporal Kelsey De Santis, I applaud you . Third of all…Justin, this almost makes up for burning Britney in the “Cry Me a River” video.
Cpl. De Santis made a YouTube video asking Timberlake to be her date to the Marine Corps Ball. Back in July when Timberlake got word of this, he said he would attend. Timberlake made good on his promise and was spotted at the Ball last night…bringing “Sexy Back” in his tux.
“The wife of one of the marines at the ball said Timberlake posed for pictures and seemed like a normal guy,” according to WTVR. He was probably afraid of getting his ass kicked by a marine.
All I have to say is this…
Dear Joshua Jackson – the next wedding I get an invite to, I will be asking you to be my date…prepare accordingly.
In lieu of a Celebrity Top 3 post, my focus is on the one and only La Lohan.
Lindsay bares all?
It’s amazing to me that Lohan is getting so much press and she doesn’t even have a damn job!
I guess I’ll start with the Playboy shoot. Yes, you read correctly…Lohan will be on the cover and inside the pages of the January/February issue of Playboy. The “Mean Girls” star had to pose in her birthday suit not once, but twice because Hef didn’t think the first round of pictures were up to his Playboy standards. o0o0o0 burn.
“The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay,” according to Lohan’s rep Steve Honig (boy does he have his work cut out for him).
I do recall a little after the first round of pictures were taken, it was rumored that Lindsay was bearing the big three…if you don’t know what three body parts I’m referring to, please ask a parent or guardian.
Alas, it looks like Lohan chickened out and it’s been reported that she won’t be completely nude.
Lindsay – No one is going to buy the issue now…I think a majority of America has already seen you partially nude.
Lindsay crashes a party?
Now I have been following Lindsay and her antics for quite some time and have never been personally offended by any of her actions. But this time, you went too far Lindsay!
Let me explain. Last Thursday there was an after party for Leo DiCarpio’s (sooo handsome) new film “J. Edgar.” It has been reported that Lohan hauled ass into the party without an invite and made the other famous guests feel “uncomfortable.”
Of course Lindsay says she had an invite and complained so much that they finally let her in. The New York Post writes about one source that heard Lindsay tell security “I have to go and see Leo.” Yea I bet he wanted to see you too.
The New York Post also claims that Lindsay sent over one of her posse to ask for a picture with Leo. His security wasn’t having any of that and turned Lindsay away.
She huffed and puffed and made everyone feel awkward. In the words of Regina George…boo you whore.
Welp Lindsay was sentenced to go back to jail. This time around, she was awarded 30 days in the slammer for violating her probation.
Lindsay strolled into Lynwood Dentition Facility at 8:48 p.m. on Sunday and strolled back out at 1:35 a.m. It was such a short stay that I didn’t even get to place my bet on how long she would be in the clink.
Side note: Last Lohan jail sentence…I won my office pool of $12. Like a boss.
After being freed, Lohan hopped into an Escalade and was home by 2 a.m. It was sort of like she went to the bar and was home by closing time. No big deal.
“She’s treated like every other inmate who has gone through similar circumstances,” County sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said. Yea okay.
Attention: Lohan is on the loose…protect your children and pets.
Backstreet Boys…no longer incomplete
Back in 2006, my favise Backstreet Boy…Kevin Richardson decided to leave the boy band and I was crushed. The singer decided it was time to depart and “move on with the next chapter of [his] life.” There was no other reason for me to follow BSB if I couldn’t catch a glimpse of Kevin’s eyebrows.
To be honest, I think the real reason why Kevin left was because he was sick of playing second banana to Nick and Brian. Let’s be real…Kevin was typically off to the side or way in the back. He was the Lance Bass of this boy band. Yes, I said it.
This past week, it was announced that Kevin is coming back…alright! As you should know, BSB has their own cruise ship…the SS Backstreet. The boys like to host concerts on it. Kevin announced that he is tentatively rejoining the group for one night only and picked the best spot to reunite with his former band mates…the Bahamas!
Kevin told Ryan Seacrest…“I would never say that it would never happen,” says Richardson. “I would love to perform with them again on a more regular basis. Our chemistry when we come together just feels like old times.”
Kevin - My vote is stay…give me a reason to love BSB again.
Kate Middleton… that ticking is your biological clock
Some huge non-demeaning to women news broke out from that famous royal family in the UK this past week.
Here is a quick summary… if Kate and Will happen to pop out a baby girl, that lil lady will now be eligible to be Queen one day. And it won’t matter if the would-be queen has a little brother…she will be in line for the throne! I have to say…I’m pumped.
In a meeting last Friday, the Commonwealth leaders from 16 countries agreed to end the centuries-old practice that doesn’t allow female heirs to take hold of the British throne. Another positive part of this is that “leaders have also agreed to end a 300-year-old ban on the monarch being married to a Catholic,” according to The Gazette.
Does this mean I can marry Prince Harry now? I sure hope so!
Kate and Will – In the words of Sean Paul…Get Busy.
Any news about strippers is good news
Any “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” fans out there? I’ll admit it…I am a fan and I’m still waiting for the appropriate moment to flip a table.
Rumors have been circulating the interweb that Jacqueline Laurita is a former Las Vegas stripper and she is trying to keep this secret a secret. I gotta tell you Jacqueline …if I know, everyone knows.
What peaked everyone’s interest in Jacqueline was the fact that she declined to show up to the New Jersey Housewives reunion. According to HollywoodLife.com, “She feared that Danielle Staub would make a surprise appearance and tell all about Jacqueline’s stripping past,” shares a source. “She didn’t want to face the truth!”
Here is the best part… Jacqueline met Chris (her husband) while working as an exotic dancer. I guess T-Pain was speaking the truth when he said, “I’m in Love with a Stripper.”
Jacqueline – I’m not one to judge…you had a baby to support and needed some cash money. Let’s be real, at least one out of every three ladies have thought about stripping as an career option (Btw I just made that figure up). Anywho, if you got it, flaunt it.
Ne-Yo baby #2…huh?!
Woah…hold the phone! I have been blindsided by the news of Ne-Yo having not one, but two children. I feel betrayed, Ne-Yo!
This news has propelled me to dig deeper into this fedora-wearing gentleman’s life. Get ready for another mind blow…Ne-Yo is not the name listed on his birth certificate! I’ll give you have a minute to deal with this.
Okay, apparently Ne-Yo’s name is actually Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr. and he’s from Arkansas. Was anyone else picturing him to be from the ATL?
It’s one mind blow after another with this man…he also has a girlfriend/baby mama named Monyetta Shaw. Ne-Yo’s lady gave birth to Madilyn Grace Smith (their first child) Nov. 12, 2010. Not waiting a very long time for baby numero dos, Shaw gave birth to the couple’s second child, Mason Evan Smith, last Sunday.
Ne-Yo – the façade is over. That is all.
Lohan’s Wrecked Grill
If it couldn’t get any worse…Lohan’s grill is officially jacked. This bitch has been through a lot…countless drunken nights, rage-filled benders, jail, court, Samantha Ronson, etc. Through it all, Lohan always had her pearly whites…sadly, not anymore.
Last Wednesday, Lindsay attended the THQ launch party and strutted her way down the red carpet. I will give her this…she looked pretty good in her black dress, tanned skin and blonde weave. Once you get to the grill, I’m warning you…whiplash may occur!
According to her brave rep, “Lindsay is widely acknowledged as one of the most stunning actresses of her day, and we get requests every week wanting to do photo shoots with her from top photographers,” Steve Honig, tells PEOPLE.
I don’t know who Lindsay’s publicist is or why (at this point) she is even still paying them, but after this stunt…she/he should. be. fired!
Lindsay – Get some Crest white strips. Let me just say, while Britney did shave her head…she never left the house with jacked up teeth.
Beyoncé’s baby bump not real?!
A video surfaced on the web claiming to show Beyoncé’s baby bump deflating…ruh oh.
The interweb blew up with rumors pointing the finger at the singer (rhyme…point) saying that her pregnancy was fake. There are a few things I know in life and one of them is…you do not defy Mrs. Beyoncé Hova. She could put you six feet under from the other side of the globe.
The rumors became so vicious, that Beyonce’s people were forced to comment. According to ABCNews.com, “Beyoncé’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure gave a statement to ABCNews.com in response to the prosthetic belly reports: “Stupid, ridiculous and false.” That’s all that needs to be said.
Charlotte York adopts a baby
Okay, Kristin Davis actually adopted a baby, but so did Charlotte York. You can’t be mad at me for getting confuzzled.
This “Sex and the City” diva has adopted a baby girl named, Gemma Rose Davis. Kirstin actually became a mom two months ago, but decided to keep it a secret until now.
“This is something I have wanted for a very long time,” Davis tells People. “Having this wish come true is even more gratifying than I ever had imagined. I feel so blessed.”
I’m so glad that Kristin went ahead and fulfilled her dream of being a mom without waiting on some dude. Speaking of dudes, did you know that Kristin has been romantically linked to Rick Fox, Liev Schreiber, Jeff Goldblum and Alec Baldwin? Nice work, girl!
I’d like to end this post with one of my favise quotes that Charlotte York ever uttered: “I’ve been dating since I was 15. I’m exhausted! Where is he?”
I hear you girl.
Leo DiCaprio is single and ready to mingle…again
After a long 5-month romance, Leo DiCaprio and Blake Lively are no longer a pair.
This past week, both their reps confirmed to “Us Weekly” that these two (ex)lovebirds have called it quits. Of course the F word was dropped. Reps added, “The pair remain friends.” Yea, okay.
Blake scored a pretty sweet deal. First spotted together back in May, Leo and Blake vacationed on Steven Spielberg’s yacht in Monte Carlo.
Following that, these two were seen all over the globe…Italy, California, New York City and even Australia! I’m sure if there were vacation spots in outer space, we would have seen pictures of these two floating around Pluto (I know it’s not a planet anymore, but I reject that informational detail).
Apparently Blake is already creeping on Ryan Reynolds. These two were seen taking a train to Boston…on to the next one, right? Leo is also on to the next one…Alyce Crawford from “America’s Next Top Model.” Girl, you better get down on your hands and knees and thank Tyra Banks.
I’ll admit it; I didn’t like Blake and Leo as a couple. I kept thinking, “Blake get out of Kate Winslet’s way!” I know I’m beating a dead horse, but let’s be real Kate and Leo are meant to be! Leo…don’t let Kate go…you promised.
Madonna + Super bowl = more than a nip slip
It was has been reported that Madonna will perform at the Super Bowl’s halftime spectacle. I haven’t enjoyed a halftime show since 2004…remember when Justin Timberlake exposed Janet Jackson’s nip (hahahaha)?
I feel like Janet has yet to recover from that incident, but Justin is still doing what he does…bringing sexy back and getting a huge paycheck for it.
If Madonna plays the show, I feel like The Queen of Pop is obligated to top the Jackson/Timberlake nipple debacle. Since the Catholics are already hollering to have Madonna banned from the Super Bowl, I think she’s is going to belt out “Like A Prayer” and maybe Jesus will be on tambourine.
The president of the Catholic League, Bill Donohue has said, “For decades, Madonna has blatantly offended Christians, especially Catholics. The offensive lyrics, lewd behavior and misappropriation of sacred symbols are reason enough not to have her perform.”
Hey Bill – did you go to catholic school? I side with Madonna on this one. Do what you do best girl…and offend the hell out of everyone.
Jack Osbourne…put a ring on it
Unbeknownst to me, Jack Osbourne had a lady-friend. Well, she is no longer his lady-friend. She is now his fiancé…after four months of dating! Wouldn’t it be nice if I told you her name… it’s Lisa Stelly.
The future Mrs. Osbourne is a model and actress. You may have seen her in Green Day’s music video for “21st Century Breakdown.” The world found out this wonderful news via Twitter…where else? “The most amazing man I’ve ever met asked me to marry him, and he wasn’t joking! Crazy, right?” Stelly wrote.
This is a pretty big deal…I’m sure Sharon is screaming her face off with excitement. I remember being a younger version of myself and watching “The Osbournes” reality TV show on MTV and thinking, “who will ever want to marry these kids…they are so damn loud!” I guess there is a lid for every pot.
Fact of the day: you can insure your breasts
How did I find out this awesome fact…from Hef’s ex-gf, Holly Madison! According to People.com, Holly took out an insurance policy through Lloyd’s of London for $1 million bones.
Since Holly stars in “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood in Vegas, this makes total sense. I actually might go out and insure my tat-tats…you never know.
Holly told People.com, “I’ve heard about people getting body parts insured and I thought, why not?, because if anything happened to my boobs, I’d be out for a few months and I’d probably be out a million dollars,” she said. “I thought I’d cover my assets.”
During my research, I found that Holly isn’t the only one to have her breasticles insured. Dolly Parton insured her girls for $300,000 a piece. I also found out that Dolly is carrying around 40DD…bless your heart and your back.
Ashton and Demi…could it really be over?
The rumor that Ashton and Demi are getting the big D is flaring up again. This time, it’s all Demi’s fault.
At the beginning of Sept., she tweeted a pic of her back and wrote, “remember…..you’ve got your own back.” Now that doesn’t sound particularly positive.
All week, Mrs. Kutcher has been tweetering many interesting things to hint that her marriage isn’t going so well.
- “When we are offended at any man’s fault, turn to yourself & study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger. –Epictetus”
- “I see through you…” Attached to this tweet was a sad picture of Demi with her eyes closed.
Amid rumors that Ashton has been unfaithful to his wife with mistress Sara Leal, these two didn’t even spend their 6th anniversary together. Demi was a premiere and Ashton was allegedly partying with Danny Masterson.
Even though Ashton was flashing his wedding ring on Thursday, this all seems suspicious. Has the age difference finally caught up with this couple? I guess we will just have to wait and see…I’m pretty sure when Demi changes her Tweeter name, we’ll know their marriage is finished. Team Demi.
Lady Gaga is dead…just kidding
Gaga has joined the ranks of Tom Cruise, Jeff Goldblum and even Lindsay Lohan.
I have to make a comment about Lohan. These online rumor spreaders said she kicked the bucket from an overdose…now that’s just way to believable. At least make up an interesting story like when Tom Cruise stumbled down that mountain in New Zealand.
If this cruel Gaga rumor was true, I’m pretty sure the world would stop spinning and we would have to relocate to another planet. I feel like a world without Gaga would be equivalent to most scenes in “The Matrix.”
According to E! News, “…some enterprising cybercriminals have been spreading the following headline via Facebook: “BREAKING: Lady Gaga Found Dead in Hotel Room” along with a link to a BBC News story and a description reading “This is the most awful day in US history.”
In reality, when people clicked the link, it guided you to a fake website with a video that was supposed to be the news story about Gaga’s demise. When clicked on, it spammed your Facebook account with the same link in order to get your friends to visit the scam site.
These scammers are getting really clever! Hey – If I had seen it, I probably would have clicked it.
Have no fear Gaga disciples, your goddess is still breathing…she was at the Giants game getting crunk last night.
She’s just being Miley (still funny)
Apparently Miley Cyrus has become another victim in the “I’m a celebrity and scandalous photos of me leaked onto the interweb.”
I say apparently because of the way this scandalous photo looks (it’s on your left). It appears to be professionally taken. Hannah Montana has great hair, great lighting, great pose and a nice background scene.
What I keep reading is that many people think the photo is sooo racy and that Miley may have leaked it herself because she felt left out/forgotten.
Whether or not this photo was leaked, stolen or given to the media by Miley herself, I don’t see what the big deal is. She’s 18 and is legally allowed to do whatever she wants.
If she wants photos taken of her texting while wearing intimate apparel and red high heels, go for it. You better do it while your young…shit only goes south with age.
R.E.M. is getting a divorce…everybody hurts
Rock band R.E.M. announced (via their website) they are splitting up after 30 years of musical marriage. The band’s joint statement revealed the following sad message:
“To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening.”
Even though I only like/knew of two R.E.M. songs (“Losing My Religion” and “Everybody Hurts”), I was still slightly shocked that this iconic band is “calling it a day.” After 15 albums and you’re calling it a day…I feel slightly betrayed here!
What does that even mean, “calling it a day?” I always thought that this meant you’ve been working hard on something and you go home to binge eat SunChips and/or slumber, but you’ll be back to work tomorrow!
So maybe, R.E.M. will pull a Jay-Z and say that they are “retiring” but release an album with Kanye West a few months down the road.
Jennifer Lopez…Man eater
After J.Lo and Marc Anthony generated the split heard around the world, I was expecting Jenny from Da Block to take some time to regroup. Well, I guess I was wrong…and I can’t believe I just admitted that. Who is the new man she has sunk her talons into…Bradley Cooper!
A few days ago, J.Lo and Bradley had a nice dinner date at the classy Per Se in NYC! It must have been a real-life date because Jenny left the entourage and huge bodyguards at home.
According to the “New York Post,” “One onlooker at the restaurant said, ‘He waited 10 minutes for her to arrive, and she turned up in a white bandage dress looking ridiculously hot. They sat at a corner table smiling and chatting. It looked like they were heavily flirting. They left together out of a back door, so not to be seen.”
Bradley’s rep comented, “They were meeting for business regarding a project.” Let’s be real – J.Lo doesn’t leave the entourage and/or bodyguards for anyone…
Jennifer – I thought we were past this “I’m going to date the hottest man in Hollywood right now” phase. Remember Ben? I do hope you are only stepping out on the town with B-Coop to show Marc what he’s missing. If so, my respect level bumped up a few notches for you.
ScarJo’s goodies hit the interweb
Welp, I guess nobody listened to Reese Witherspoon’s advice that she so generously passed along at the MTV Movie Awards. Just as a quick reminder, Reese advised “…if you take naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hide your face, people!” They still haven’t learned.
Here’s the deets, a hacker broke into Scarlett Johansson’s cellular telephone and scored some naked pics of the starlet. These pictures reportedly show ScarJo topless and (according to MTV) “another shows her standing with a towel covering her front side with her butt exposed in a mirror.”
Like any normal woman, Scarlett got pissed. Instead of just letting her nude pics spread around the web like wildfire, Scarlett kicked it up a notch and called the FBI. According to E! News, “The FBI is investigating a person or group responsible for a series of cyber intrusions of high-profile figures,” FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. “This would include many devices — could mean a computer, desktop, laptop, iPad, cell phone … intrusions into personal online accounts too.”
It’s been reported today that ScarJo’s legal team has sent out a bunch of nasty/threatening letters to websites posting the photos and ordered for the removal of ScarJo’s goodies.
A lesson I learned today: Don’t f*ck with Scarlett Johansson or she will call the feds.
Brad Pitt – What a d*ck
After spending 7 years with Jennifer Aniston and then leaving her for every woman’s arch nemesis (Angelina Jolie)…he has to go and do this!? In case you haven’t heard, Brad Pitt sat down with “Parade” magazine and forgot his filter at the house that Angelina built.
Brad told “Parade,” “It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself,” Pitt told Parade about the final years of his relationship with Aniston, which ended in 2005. “I think that my marriage had something to do with it, trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”
When I first heard this, three words came to my mind…rage, rage, rage! Just when it looks like Jennifer is moving on with her new man Jason, Brad has to stick his nose in.
Since tons of people became outraged that Brad had the nerve to leave Jen in the first place and toss out such a hurtful comment, someone on his PR team made him release a statement saying otherwise.
Brad commented, “It grieves me that this was interpreted this way,” wrote Pitt, reports Reuters. “Jen is an incredibly giving, loving, and hilarious woman who remains my friend. It is an important relationship I value greatly. The point I was trying to make is not that Jen was dull, but that I was becoming dull to myself — and that, I am responsible for.”
Brad – She even stayed by your side when you had that creepy Jesus beard. Ugh. Whatever Brad…Team Jennifer for life.
