Early last month, Kanye West posted a serious of tweets on his official Twitter profile asking then discussing if it’s ever acceptable to use the word “bitch”. Kanye‘s Twitter convo then moved on to discussion of the “N” word and went from there. If you would like to re-read those tweets you can do so HERE but, unfortunately, you cannot read them on Kanye‘s official Twitter account … because he deleted every single tweet he’s ever tweeted. It’s unknown why Kanye decided to purge his entire tweet history but he did leave one, singular tweet in place. Click below to see the only thing he has to say right now. More »

Earlier this year we started hearing about the filming production of a rebooted TV series based on the 1960′s series The Munsters that would be titled Mockingbird Lane. As you may recall, Eddie Izzard, Jerry O’Connell and Portia de Rossi were among the big names added to the series which, you may also know, was set to feature a cast of non-monster Munsters. Today we are hearing that the bosses at NBC are likely to pass on the show, meaning it will not make it to air. According to Deadline, the show isn’t completely dead just yet but … it’s pretty much dunzo. More »

After 9 Years Together :(
Very, very sad news to pass along today … Saturday Night Live real-life lovebirds Amy Poehler and Will Arnett have announced that they are separating after 9 years of marriage and 2 children together. No cause has been revealed but there isn’t really any reason to believe that a third party is involved … I suspect we’ll hear a reason of irreconcilable differences. What kills me the most about this split, other than the fact that Amy and Will look so cute together, is that the couple have 2 sons under the age of 5 years old — Archie who is 3½ and Abel who is only 2. Very sad, very unfortunate … but Amy and Will are dunzo :( More »

Dunzo After 27 Years???
Just about a month after her daughter’s ginormous cheating scandal, Jules Stewart– mother of Kristen Stewart– is filing for divorce from her husband. Jon and Jules Stewart both work in film and they’ve been married for 27 years; one can only imagine how this separation is affecting their three children, Kristen, Cameron (Kristen‘s older brother), and Taylor.

Cancelled After 6 Seasons
After 1 fun season and 5 subsequent embarrassing and, quite honestly, trashy seasons on the air, MTV has decided to cancel their popular reality TV series Jersey Shore. As you may know, the show began to suffer in recent years due to various castmembers’ addiction and/or legal problems so it started to look like the show was nearing its end. Nicole Snooki Polizzi even got herself pregnant, putting a huge damper on her ability to continue her hard-partying ways on the show (Snooki gave birth this week). As a result, MTV decided to pull the plug and cancel the series after 6 seasons. At last, Jersey Shore is dunzo! More »

No Reconciliation Here
At the end of last month we learned that Adrienne Maloof, one of the stars of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and her husband of about 10 years Paul Nassif were breaking up. It was reported that the couple were looking for ways to reconcile in the midst of their split but clearly attempts to patch things up have not been successful. Adrienne filed for divorce from Paul today and shortly thereafter, he filed his own divorce papers against her. It does not sound like this split is going to be very amicable :( More »
EMT's In The Building And All That
As many of you know Halle Berry is engaged in a crazy bitter custody battle with ex-boyfriend and babydaddy Gabriel Aubrey. Halle is determined to move to France with their daughter Nahla (her fiancé Olivier Martinez lives there) and she’s pulling out all the big guns to get the court’s approval. Her good friend and fellow actress Salma Hayek was recently a main witness in the case, testifying that Nahla would be safer in France, due to the strict paparazzi laws that are enforced (Salma is married to French businessman and CEO Francois-Henri Pinault). But something other than legal drama popped off in the courtroom yesterday when paramedics arrived on the scene. Deets inside.

But What If That's Not A Bad Thing?
PITNB’s NEW popCULTURE CLUB: theoretically putting the “culture” back in “pop culture,” one post at a time…
Nowadays most of us know where babies come from (although some of us, like ‘legitimate rape’ politician, Todd Akin are still a bit foggy on the details), and while I think women, IMO, totally run the world many of us believe that a woman’s body is no longer her own. But is a woman’s body (or a man’s for that matter) ever her own? Three major pop culture stories have been buzzing about (especially in my own brain)– Rihanna’s interview with Oprah and her confession of undying love for Chris Brown, Kristen Stewart’s cheating scandal (and the subsequent, often ridiculous Kristen-bashing) and Representative Todd Akin’s horrific statement about how a woman’s body can totally decide whether or not to get pregnant by a rapist. All of these stories, to me, reflect a society’s unwillingness to allow a woman’s body to be her own and I wonder if the reason our society doesn’t believe a woman’s body is her own is because it isn’t.
Dunzo for REALS
Dang, well that was fast. Back in late June we learned that Katie Holmes filed for divorce from hubby Tom Cruise. In July, just over a week later, we learned that the couple reached an amicable divorce settlement. Today, just over a month later, we learn that the couple’s divorce is official. A judge in NY signed off on the couple’s divorce settlement this week and just like that … TomKat is dunzo for reals. More »

There have been many new developments since our last update on Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson. Last week, we reported that Chad had been fired from the Miami Dolphins following a domestic violence claim against him from his wife, Evelyn. Shortly thereafter, Evelyn spoke out against Chad and expressed her disappoinment in him, for not admitting to his mistakes or accepting responsibility for the violence against her. During this time reports also surfaced about a previous domestic violence case against Chad (which confirmed a theory from PITNBR janaegal, that both Evelyn and Chad might have been abusive). Evelyn then began the process of ending their 6 week marriage, and filed for divorce. Now it seems that Evelyn plans to stay out of the limelight for some time, as she is reportedly canceling some upcoming appearances. Deets inside.
