The City Of Stonnington In Australia Bans Ed Hardy Clothing

"All you fuck-head Jersey Shore wannabes can go back to the suburbs"

Taking a cue from some nightclubs around the world, the city of Stonnington in the South East Melbourne region of Australia has decided to BAN all use of Ed Hardy clothing within their city limits. Here is the message that was posted by Stonnington officials on the window of a shut down Ed Hardy boutique in town:


I have no words … except to say, Bravo! I mean … this is just too awesome for words. I think I might have to pack my bags and move my ass to Stonnington. Woot!

Shia LaBeouf & Carey Mulligan Are Dunzo!

Stocks crash on the 'Wall Street 2' lovebirds' relationship

When last we saw lovebirds and co-stars Shia LaBeouf and Carey Mulligan, they were making their way to LA together so that they could attend the 2010 Academy Awards together (she was a nominee). Since that time, the couple have not really spent a lot of time together … probably due to the fact that the couple, Oh Sh-arey, are dunzo!

Starring in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps was good for Carey Mulligan’s bank balance, but it does not seem to have brought any lasting satisfaction in her love life. Mandrake hears that the 25-year-old actress is returning to Britain after cooling her relationship with Shia LaBeouf, 24, who played her boyfriend in the film. “I’m moving back to England: it’s a long story,” she told friends at the premiere of her latest film, Never Let Me Go, in the West End of London. When I asked the actress, who was a boarder at Woldingham School, in Surrey, why she was returning just a few months after she had professed her love for New York, she was demure. “I am spending some more time here at the moment,” she said. “Just spending time with my family, really” … In May, the actress, who was nominated at the Academy Awards for her role in An Education, said: “I love New York, maybe more than Los Angeles or London. I could live in New York. I think I’m happiest [there].”

Alas … another young relationship fritters away and dies. Shia recently flipped out on a paparazzo photographer who dared to photograph him, perhaps he was just pissy that his relationship with Carey had come to an end. Ah well … I suppose the old adage is true … ’tis better to have love and lost than never to have loved at all.

Christina Aguilera Files For Divorce From Jordan Bratman

"Irreconcilable Differences"

Oh yeah, they’re dunzo for sure. After it was reported on Tuesday that Christina Aguilera and hubby Jordan Bratman had split up and after Xtina issued a very vague statement about the split comes news today that she has just filed for divorce from her husband of just about 5 years. Whereas the couple claimed that there was nothing official about their split previously, this latest move on Xtina‘s part makes the dunzoness SO official:

Just days after confirming that she had separated on Sept. 11 from her husband Jordan Bratman, Christina Aguilera has filed for divorce, a source close to the singer confirms to PEOPLE. In the papers, Aguilera cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. She also asked for joint physical and legal custody of their son, Max.

TMZ has the divorce papers HERE, reveals that there is a prenuptial agreement in place and is circulating the rumor that it was cheating on Xtina‘s part that led to the initial split. HMMM. I mean, we may never know who if anyone cheated in that relationship but one thing is for sure … this break-up has gone from a mere separation to a full-on divorce. I suppose any chance of a reconciliation has pretty much been squashed. In the end, it’s prolly for the best in the long run … but still, it’s so sad to see a marriage come to an end.

David Arquette Apologizes For Being A Blabbermouth

"I am sorry and humbled"

Earlier this week, after we learned about the break-up of Courteney Cox and David Arquette, David went on The Howard Stern Show to talk publicly about the circumstances that led to the end of his marriage … offering very personal information about his relationship with his wife and the woman he’s been sleeping with since the couple’s separation. In hindsight it appears that Arquette has seen the error of his ways and has offered a public Twitter apology for his comments … read on:

Thank you all for your Love and support at this time. I’m trying figuring out how to be the best person I can be. / but it’s been a process of trial and error. I went on Howard Stern yesterday to provide clarity and honesty about what I’m experiencing / but while doing that I shared too much…it’s alright for me to be honest about my own feelings but in retrospect some of the information / I provided involved others and for that I am sorry and humbled..Life is a process of spiritual evolution / I’m sure Courteney and myself will emerge from this painful time better people for what we’ve learned.

Yeah, I’m sure David Arquette is a nice guy … but I can’t help but think of him as a doofus. I cannot believe that he would go on a national radio program and share all those intimate details about his marriage and NOT think it was a very bad idea at the time. My guess is that someone had to tell him that he over-shared … and I’m guessing that person was his estranged wife Courteney Cox. You know, at least he apologized. That’s something, right? LOL.

Christina Aguilera & Jordan Bratman Live Separate Lives

She goes shopping, He visits his lawyer

In the wake of yesterday’s big news that married couple Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman have decided to separate, new photos of the pair have come to light … new photos of the couple living their very separate lives. Xtina spent part of her day yesterday shopping for toys for her son Max Liron (she apparently got the young lad a bake set) while Jordy spent part of his day running around town doing errands … which included a visit to his attorney:


Since the couple have been living separate lives for some time now and only yesterday confirmed their split, none of this is news … but in light of the knowledge that the couple are on the outs, well, it’s just sad to see them not together. You may recall that in Xtina‘s official statement about the break-up yesterday she made no mention of any “officialness” concerning the split … but it does seem curious that Jordan would pay a visit to his attorney on the day news of his break-up with his wife was made public. While I would love to see this couple get back together, I think it’s far more important that things work themselves out for the best … which means, if Xtina and Jordy are not happy together, then maybe the split should become permanent. It’s always sad when a couple breaks up … but it would be far sadder to see them languish in an unhappy marriage, especially when that anguish could have lasting negative effects on the couple’s young son. Ugh, so sad.

Christina Aguilera Issues A Statement About Her Separation From Jordan Bratman

Xtina speaks

Earlier today we learned the surprising news that married couple Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman have been separated for some time now and I guessed that one or both of the would be issuing an official statement on the matter sometime today. And right on cue, here is the very short official statement from Xtina herself:

“Although Jordan and I are separated, our commitment to our son Max remains as strong as ever.”

I’m hearing that there is nothing legal about this split … no papers have been filed, no lawyers are involved … there is just trouble in paradise and Xtina and Jordy have decided to spend some time apart to try and see if they can work out their personal problems. I suppose we won’t be hearing anything new officially until either A.) the couple decides to get back together or B.) they decide to formally end their marriage. OY! I guess what they say is true, breaking up is hard to do.

David Arquette Dishes On His Split From Courteney Cox

David tells Howard Stern the couple haven't had sex "in months"

Yesterday afternoon the surprising news broke that Courteney Cox and David Arquette decided to split up after 11 years of marriage … a split that took place months ago but only yesterday came to light officially. Earlier today, Arquette called in to the Howard Stern Show to talk about the split and reveal when the break-up first too place and what has happened since. As you can well imagine, both Courteney and David have taken off their wedding rings. Read on for some deets from David‘s interview with Howard Stern:

David Arquette just called in to the Howard Stern Show — explaining EVERYTHING about why he and Courteney Cox agreed to take a “trial separation” … noting that they haven’t had sex in 4 months. Arquette explained that he and Courteney stopped having sex around one month before they started shooting “Scream 4″ in Michigan … and drifted from there. He also claims Courteney was the one who insisted they try separating right after their 11th wedding anniversary back in June … after she told David that she was “tired of being your mother.” David claims he still loves Courteney — and calls her one of the most amazing people on the planet. David is also adamant that he never cheated on Courteney before the split — but admits he has had sex with rebound chick Jasmine Waltz … his “one conquest.” Arquette also said he is hopeful he and Courteney can patch things up and get back together.

If you would like to hear this charming radio interview for yourselves, you can do so HERE. I will give David credit for his honesty … I doubt we’ll ever hear Courteney talking this candidly about the split. I completely believe that Courteney eventually got fed up with being a “mother” to David … he strikes me as the kind of man that needs coddling … and she strikes me as the kind of woman who won’t put up with that bullshizz for very long (tho, 11 years is a long time). Welp, it’s all out there now … I don’t know where David gets the notion that he and Courteney will get back together but … more power to him.

Now that this Courteney/David split is cooling down … how about that Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman split, huh?

Christina Aguilera & Jordan Bratman Are Dunzo!

US Weekly reports

While many of us, me included, are still struggling with the shocking news that Courteney Cox-Arquette and David Arquette are dunzo, US Weekly magazine is reporting today that another celebrity marriage is dunzo as well. According to the mag, Christina Aguilera and hubby Jordan Bratman have split … actually, have been separated for months … just like Courteney and David were. HMMM. At this point, the news has not been confirmed or denied by the couple … so take the report for what it is:

Singer Christina Aguilera is going solo. Though the pop star, 29, told UsMagazine.com less than a year ago that she felt “very blessed” in her union with music executive Jordan Bratman, 33, a source close to Aguilera tells Us the couple “have been separated for a few months.” And though Aguilera and Bratman — who met in 2002 (he was a producer on one of her albums) and wed in 2005 — have not yet decided whether to divorce, the source reveals, “they are now living apart, and they will see how that goes.” What went wrong? “They were very much in love,” explains the insider. “But over the last six months, it ­became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife.”The source adds that Aguilera even “­proposed their August trip to Italy to ­rekindle their relationship, but it didn’t help.” The duo remain united in their commitment, however, to son Max, 2. “He is their main concern,” says the pal.

I have to admit, I find this report a bit dubious … especially with its timing. At first read, it feels a bit like a story that is meant to capitalize on the confirmed break-up of Courteney and David. Because it remains unconfirmed and offers no real proof of a split, I’m hesitant to believe it … just yet. BUT, I was so surprised by the news of Courteney and David‘s split that, well, even tho I don’t necessarily believe this news about Xtina and Jordy just yet I suppose I have to consider that it may turn out to be true, just like Courteney and David. We’ll have to wait and see what Xtina has to say about this report from US Weekly.

UPDATE: Extra! TV is now also reporting that Xtina and Jordy have split (Extra! claims the couple are officially divorcing). Where there’s smoke … there should come an official statement one way or the other. Stay tuned …

UPDATE 2: Dang! TMZ is now joining the party claiming they’ve confirmed the Xtina/Jordan split is true. All that’s left is for us to hear from the couple themselves. I suspect an official statement may come later today.

Courteney Cox-Arquette & David Arquette Are Dunzo!

WTF?!

Right after I posted THIS item about David Arquette talking about the possible sub-title of Scream 4, news broke that he and wife Courteney Cox-Arquette have split up! To be honest, I head to read the headline twice because … OMG, how have these two split up? AND, as if news of the split weren’t shocking enough … the couple have apparently been on the outs for “several months” now! Dude … Courteney and David are dunzo!

Courteney Cox and David Arquette have separated after 11 years of marriage … and TMZ has learned they’ve been separated for several months. A source close to the couple tells us the two are “still friends” and they maintain a business relationship with each other. In fact, sources tell us … no lawyers are involved. The couple has one child together. David and Courteney met on the set of “Scream” sometime around 1995 … and were married in 1999. They are currently co-starring in the upcoming “Scream” movie due out next year. There was a hint of things to come back on September 25 when Arquette was spotted out, sans wedding ring.

AND … to add insult to injury, there is a reported connection to Lindsay Lohan in this sad split. Well, kinda. After the jump, find out what the connection is and read the official statement from Courteney and David about their dunzoness … More »

It’s Official: Danielle Staub Is Leaving ‘The Real Housewives Of New Jersey’

Bye Bye Bye

Last month Life & Style magazine broke the news that Danielle Staub, the most controversial castmember of the hit Bravo TV series The Real Housewives of New Jersey, had been fired from the show and would NOT be appearing in any future seasons of the show. Today we learn officially that Staub has, indeed, been fired from the show. Bravo aired part 2 of the reunion special for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which was Danielle‘s final appearance on the show. On her way out, Danielle hugged and handshaked (handshook?) with her fellow RHONJ castmembers in an apparent show of friendship … which you can see from these photos:

Bravo is cleaning house. The network announced Monday that Danielle Staub, the firestarter on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” would not be returning to the show. Throughout the tumultuous second season, Staub enraged Caroline Manzo, her sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita and family friend Teresa Giudice, though Staub seemed to make amends at the end of Monday’s reunion episode. “The reunion was Danielle’s last appearance on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” said Andy Cohen, Bravo’s senior vice president of original programming and development who also hosts “The Real Housewives” reunion shows. “We thought the hugs were a great way to end two seasons of bitterness between the women.” … While several women are moving on from the 4-year-old franchise, an entirely new group of “Real Housewives” in Beverly Hills are preparing for their close-up , debuting Oct. 14. Cohen promised a return to over-the-top opulence and a family dynamic similar to the New Jersey series with a pair sisters who happen to be connected to the Hilton family. The Beverly Hills cast includes: Adrienne Maloof, whose family owns the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas; Camille Grammer, ex-wife of “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer; Lisa Vanderpump, a transplanted British restaurateur; Taylor Armstrong, wife of venture capitalist Russell Armstrong and Kim and Kyle Richards, former child stars and aunts of Paris Hilton. “There’s big, big, big drama and big, big, big tension,” said Cohen. “They all live near each other, and it’s amazing. You’ll see what it means to be someone’s neighbor in Beverly Hills. You have to walk a mile to get to your next door neighbor’s house. Adrienne and Lisa live across the street from each other. I’ve never seen wealth on that scale.” Bravo is constantly searching for new cast members, both in existing and potential locales, according to Cohen. That means interviewing and filming test footage of possible “Real Housewives” with their friends and families. Cohen said the network has attempted to wrangle a Texas edition for the past two years but “never hit it” with the right group of women.

And that, my dear friends, is that … no more Danielle. Personally, this decision to cut her out of the show makes no sense to me. The whole dynamic of RHONY is all the ladies vs. Danielle … without Danielle, what is left for the other castmembers to do? Do I really want to watch the bankrupt Teresa shop? Do I really want to watch Jacqueline fight with her bratty daughter Ashley? Do I really want to watch Caroline smother and baby her grown children? No, to all of those questions. It’s starting to feel like the Real Housewives franchise is losing it’s luster … not only is Danielle leaving RHONJ but Bethenny Frankel is leaving The Real Housewives of NYC, Lisa Wu Hartwell is leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta and crazy Lynne Curtain is leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County. The franchise will debut The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this Fall … further saturating reality TV with more old rich women dying to be famous. Meh. Danielle Staub may have been a bit loony but she was entertaining and truly made RHONJ worth watching … without her, I’m not sure it’s worth tuning in anymore.
