Death Can Be A Drag

The TV Guide

Blah. The good news is that the cold I was coming down with back home in Detroit is almost completely gone (thank you meds) but the bad news is that my allergies kicked into high gear late Sunday night/early Monday morning. A few years ago, I used to suffer from allergy outbreaks of hives but these days, I don’t really get them anymore … that is, unless I’m around cats for extended periods of time. Since I was staying at my BFF Sarah’s place last week, I think her two kitties caused my flare up. Yesterday was mostly an uncomfortable day of hives but, thankfully, they have almost entirely gone away today. Since I wasn’t really in the mood to go out, I got to spend some time watching TV … including last night’s FABULOUS season 4 premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race. More »

Paula Abdul & Nicole Scherzinger Have Been FIRED From ‘The X Factor’

Host Steve Jones got Axed, Too

So … you know how last year former American Idol judge Simon Cowell was all excited about his new competitive singing reality show The X Factor and he was all excited about bringing on board judges Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones to the show? Yeah, that’s over because all 3 of these people have been FIRED from the show. You may recall that British pop singer Cheryl Cole was originally meant to be a judge on X Factor but she got fired before the show made it air and was replaced with Scherzinger (who, if you consider how she got her job, shouldn’t be all that surprised that she was so easily fired, too). The only person that Simon Cowell didn’t fire is fellow male judge L.A. Reid. Read on for all the gory details of this X Factor bloodbath below. More »

‘Sparkle’ Releases A New Promo Image Of Whitney Houston & Jordin Sparks

Divas

Earlier this month, Melissa blogged about a new film titled Sparkle that stars Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks. Today we get to check out a fantastic new promo photo of the pair in the film. As I understand it, Sparkle is a film loosely based on the life story of The Supremes where we follow the meteoric rise of the protagonist character Sparkle (played by Sparks).

MTV Tries To Prank Neil Patrick Harris On ‘Punk’d', Fails Miserably

"Nice try, MTV"

MTV has decided to bring back the celebrity prank series Punk’d and in order to do so, they have to play new pranks on celebrities to be aired on the show. This weekend, MTV tried to pull a prank on Neil Patrick Harris … and they failed. Earlier in the day yesterday, NPH tweeted a photo of his partner David Burtka telling his Twitter followers that they were about to enjoy a day of rock climbing. A few hours later, Neil tweeted that the jig was up … he was WELL AWARE that MTV was trying to prank him on Punk’d (apparently, there was a bear involved). I guess he wasn’t supposed to publicly let people know that he knew he was being pranked, so he deleted the follow-up tweets. But you can still read all of the relevant Punk’d tweets and see the photo he posted below. More »

Passing The Time In Disney’s World

Yesterday was my last day in Detroit and for the most part, it was a great day. I got to relax in the early part of the day with Sarah and Mark as we shared an AMAZING Middle Eastern meal from Cedar Garden in Dearborn, MI.

It’s Good To Be A Celebrity: ‘New York’ Magazine Reveals Celebs Get $100K In Gifts

Because A Celebrity Can Never Have Too Many Shoes

We all spend a good portion of our days reading and thinking about celebrities and, if you are anything like me, some of that is spent dreaming of what it would be like to be a celebrity. I dream of the attention, the fans and, of course, all the nice things I would have. Well, I am learning now that those nice things don’t always come at a price. I always knew that celebrities received gifts from fashion houses, luxury brands and consumer goods companies, but I never realized just how much they received. New York Magazine has been digging around the economics of being a celebrity (check out next week’s edition) and is estimating that “a regular red-carpet walker will receive about $100,000 in free goods and services annually”.

Australia Day Deserves A Celebration Of Aussie Talent

Who Is The Hottest Australian Star?

Yesterday, 26 January was Australia Day, the day Australians commemorate the anniversary of England’s First Fleet arriving at Sydney Cove in 1788 and starting the colony. It’s a bitter sweet day, because for many Aussies this is also the day that the Aboriginal population, that had been on the land for centuries, were side stepped and their land taken away. That sad note aside, this is also a day for Aussies living in the U.S. to celebrate the contribution that Australia has made to the celebrity world. As one patriotic Aussie girl, I am proud of our exports… who do you think is the biggest Australian talent to have taken over Hollywood? More »

Cynthia Nixon Clarifies Her ‘Gay Choice’ Comments By Admitting Her Bisexuality

"[Bisexuals] get no respect"

Actress Cynthia Nixon, who boldly shaved off all of her hair for her new Broadway stage play Wit, caused a bit of a stir earlier this week when she made comments that suggested homosexuality is a “choice”. What Cynthia was saying was that for her, personally, being gay is a choice because after choosing to be in a heterosexual relationship, she now chooses to be in a homosexual relationship. I suggested that what Cynthia was describing is bisexuality … and today we learn that, yes, that is indeed what she was trying to convey. In a follow-up interview with The Daily Beast, Cynthia maintains that “nobody likes bisexuals” and therefore, she doesn’t like using the term. But, whether she likes it or not, homosexuality is not a choice except for those who are bisexual. More »

All week long, Seal has happily continued to wear his wedding ring and has even gone so far as to suggest that a reconciliation with Heidi is possible. Heidi, for her part, has managed to keep completely out of sight … until now. Heidi ventured out in SoCal yesterday for the first time since news of her split from Seal broke. For her, it seems, life goes on. More »

Nitrous Oxide Use Reportedly Led To Demi Moore’s Hospitalization

Demi Reportedly Suffered a Seizure from Inhaling 'Whip Its'

Yesterday we learned the sad news that Demi Moore was hospitalized late Monday night due to “substance abuse” and subsequently checked herself into a rehab facility for what her publicist is referring to as “exhaustion”. Today we are hearing a bit more information about the circumstances that reportedly led to Demi‘s hospitalization. According to reports, Demi suffered a seizure after she recreationally inhaled nitrous oxide (commonly referred to as whip its). Other reports maintain that Demi‘s earlier “substance abuse” may have played a role in the end of her marriage to Ashton Kutcher. Whatever is really going on with Demi these days, it’s pretty evident to me that she is not doing well and perhaps this stint in rehab is a long time coming. Ugh. More »

Bethenny Frankel’s TV Talk Show Gets New Life

Un-Dunzo!

Last November we learned that Bethenny Frankel‘s talk show Bethenny was killed off before it even made it to air. Today we learn that her show is now back from the dead … tentatively. Apparently, some Fox affiliates around the country are going to air Bethenny‘s talk show to see how it does with viewers. As much as I love Bethenny, I just don’t think she’d do well as a talk show host but … what do I know? If The Talk (which, IMHO, is painful to watch) can stay on the air for 2 seasons now, maybe Bethenny‘s show can too?

RUMOR Has It That Beyoncé & Jay-Z Have Chosen Godparents For Blue Ivy

OMG, YOU'LL NEVER GUESS WHO

OKAY … people … bear with me … the following story just REEKS of BULLSHIZZ … but I laughed so hard when I read it that I just have to share it with all y’all. Now … you may be aware (thankfully) that the stories about Beyoncé and Jay-Z‘s first born child — Blue Ivy Carter — have died down a bit. Well, apparently the gossipmongers have noticed it too … and that is where, I’m guessing, the following story came from. According to a new REPORT, Bey and Jay have decided who will be godparents to Blue Ivy. The supposed godparents are folks that could feasibly actually be godparents but I find it very hard to believe that B-Jay would ever let information like that get out so that anyone outside of their very trusted inner circle would hear. But … according to this new rumor, Blue Ivy‘s godparents are … revealed below. More »

Fiona Apple Is FINALLY Readying The Release Of Her New Album

OMG … at LONG last … it sounds like singer Fiona Apple is FINALLY ready to release her much-delayed new album. As you may recall, I saw Fiona in concert here in LA back in August and at that time, she talked briefly about a new album but had no solid information about when the disc would be released. It sounded to me that she honestly had no idea if/when the album would be released by her record company (and that has been the case for YEARS). Yesterday, music producer (and The X Factor judge) L.A. Reid announced on his official Twitter profile that “good music” is on the way from Fiona Apple! Click below to read his tweets AND REJOICE!

The ‘Crow’ Reboot Is Back On Again

Back From the Dead

Back in November of 2009, we learned that plans were in the works to make a new reboot version of the 1994 film The Crow. In the wake of that initial report, we continually heard that things were on track for the reboot to get made … and back in April of last year, we learned that actor Bradley Cooper had signed on to play the lead role of Eric Draven/The Crow. In August of last year, we learned that Bradley was no longer attached to the film (which was GREAT NEWS considering the terribly ridiculous concept art we saw of Cooper as The Crow) and it seemed, at long last, plans for the reboot film were dead. Today, like it or not, we learn that the Crow reboot has found new life … and that plans have been renewed to move the film into production. More »

Movie Review: ‘Haywire’

The TV Guide

Because it took me quite a bit of the day yesterday to recuperate from my “wild night on the town” the night before, I spent most of my Sunday afternoon in a reclined position on the couch. I did manage to rally last night so that Darion and I would have our much-delayed movie date night at last. We decided to see Haywire primarily because Michael Fassbender is one of the film’s stars but we were both intrigued by newcomer Gina Carano who is a fighter turned first-time actress. For the most part, the film wasn’t bad … but sadly, it wasn’t very good either. More »

Gallery Of Pics: Baby … Engagement … Marriage

Does Order Matter?

This morning we got the news about Kristin Cavallari‘s pregnancy with Jay Cutler‘s baby months after they got (re)engaged in November. Pregnancies and bump watching is one of my all time favorite topics to write about and follow, and the news this morning got me thinking about the (somewhat controversial?) topic of pregnancy before marriage. We have seen lots of celebs over the past few years get engaged, have a baby, then get hitched. We’ve also seen baby, then engagement, and of course we have seen baby and no wedding at all. My personal opinion is in makes 100% no difference, but I thought there might be some interesting opinions out there. Check out the great pics of some of my fave baby before wedding couples… More »

Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux Surface Together Amid Pregnancy Rumors

Bump Watch?

Yesterday we learned that a furious rumor is going around that Jennifer Aniston *may* be pregnant with boyfriend Justin Theroux‘s baby. Today, we get to see a new photo of the happy couple as they stepped out together here in SoCal amid the swirling pregnancy rumor. Now, nothing has at all been confirmed or denied … in fact, I don’t believe that either Jennifer or Justin have even commented on the rumor at all (WHICH could be telling in and of itself). Instead, the couple just surfaced in public this weekend … hand in hand … without a discernable baby bump between them. More »
