“Ryan and I both love the ... character from ... The Hunchback of Notre Dame"
Back in mid-September we learned that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling welcomed the birth of their first child together, a daughter that we learned in October the couple named Esmeralda Amada. Today, in her first interview/photoshoot since giving birth, we learn why Eva and Ryan decided to name their daughter Esmeralda Amada. Mendes sat down to chat with Violet Grey about a host of subjects, most interestingly her newborn baby girl. It turns out that Eva and Ryan were inspired to name their child after a character in Victor Hugo‘s The Hunchback of Notre Dame … at least, that’s what she says. I’d bet a considerable amount of money that they were actually inspired by the Disney animated version of Hugo‘s Hunchback character ;) Read on to hear more from new mom Eva. More »
10Qs: Ashley Parker Angel
Back in October we got an eyeful of former O-Town member Ashley Parker Angel from all of the shirtless selfies that he likes to post on his official Instagram profile. Today we get another, more professional, eyeful of APA wearing very little clothing as he is featured in the new issue of Out magazine. Ashley is profiled in the 10Qs segment of the new issue of Out and, as you can see in the gallery presented here, he is also featured in an accompanying photospread that features a lot of skin (and a bit of butt crack). Check out the photos then continue reading, if you like, to read excerpts from APA‘s Out interview. More »
"It’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it."
Last month we learned that the legendary Bette Midler has a new album out that features Midler‘s renditions of girl group songs (like Waterfalls by TLC). Today we learn that Bette has a lot of things to say about the young female singers of today as she promotes her new album on tour. In an interview with British newspaper The Telegraph, Bette gives her opinion on Ariana Grande … a young singer she doesn’t seem too impressed with. According to Bette, Ariana has a “silly voice” who looks “ridiculous” when she “slithers around the couch”. LOL. I mean, she’s not wrong … is she? Read on to see what else Bette Midler had to say in this interview about Ariana and the state of other young female pop singers. More »
"I was instructed to NEVER tell anyone."
Here’s an interesting point that readers are starting to make about the Bill Cosby rape/sexual assault/predatory behavior accusations. Not one celebrity who has worked closely with Cosby over the years has come forward to defend his name. Raven-Symoné only came forward to refute rumors that he sexually assaulted her, but we haven’t seen any rallying around Cosby. I think that speaks volumes. And now we have yet another actress, Michelle Hurd, coming forward and speaking out about her experience with Cosby. She was fortunate enough to not have been attacked by him, but she says Cosby certainly tried. Click inside for more.

She's ready to move on
This was an odd interview to read, but I have to say, I appreciate Angelina Jolie‘s honesty. I think we’re used to hearing actors talk about how much they love the work they do, how much of a dream come true it is to make a good living off of acting. But after years and years in the biz, Jolie is ready to call it quits, and give up on acting. Don’t worry—we’ll still be seeing her around. Click inside for more!
Beth Ferrier accused Cosby in 2006, and "lost everything"
I don’t know why I’m writing this, exactly. I think the people who are asking the question, “Why are Bill Cosby‘s accusers just now coming forward?” are not likely to be persuaded by the logic in this new story. As I’ve said, celebrity/hero worship is a helluva drug. But, ya never know. And Beth Ferrier‘s statements are also helping me better understand what is going on here. At this point I think we’re at 18, maybe 218 women who have come forward over the years and accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault or rape. From what I’ve seen, the stories are all pretty much the same. Nearly all of the women were aspiring actresses, and any others were already working in the industry—women who had a lot to lose if they went up against Cosby. Click inside for more.

'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt'
A new Tina Fey show is headed our way, but why am I just now hearing about the details about this show??? Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt sounds amazing. And it also sounds like some of the new changes that are already coming to the series are all for the best. Come March 2015, Netflix subscribers will get the opportunity to binge on Tina Fey‘s new series, and binge we shall. Click inside for more!
"They could definitely ramp it up"
Like all cool people, I started watching Game of Thrones wayyyy after the rest of the world. As in, a few months ago. And probably the first thing I noticed was alllll the boobs. No need for a Free the Nipple campaign on that show. SERIOUSLY. And once I saw everyone’s boobs—and everything else—I realized that I hadn’t seen much in the way of male anything. Y’all know how I feel about that. Which is why these comments from Hunger Games: Mockingjay star Natalie Dormer (who plays Margaery Tyrell on Thrones) are getting the ill co-sign from me.
"I'm really excited about the music that we've been working on"
Last week we heard from Rihanna herself that she has new music ready for release … BUT, she wouldn’t go on the record and let us know when that music will be released. Last night, Rihanna gave a new interview to Entertainment Tonight magazine and she teased that her new album will be released “very soon”. Now, “very soon” could be taken literally and mean that the album will be out in days or weeks. “Very soon” could also, in artist speak, mean that the album will be out in a few months. I know many folks are DYING for a new Rihanna album to drop before the year is out and while possible, I cannot let my heart get set on that high hope. Unless Rihanna pulls a Beyoncé and drops her new album without warning sometime in the next few weeks, I think we might have to settle in and wait until 2015 gets underway before we get to have her new album in our clutches.
