"There's a rhythm to writing, there's a rhythm to sports, there's a rhythm to sex."
Our dear Jake Gyllenhaal, who stars in the new film Love and Other Drugs out in theaters this month, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of British Esquire magazine. In his coverstory interview, Jakey poo talks about “sex” with co-star Anne Hathaway, gettin’ nekkid on set and his intense love of women. Yeah. Here is our first look at Jake‘s Esquire coverphoto and some excerpts from the accompanying interview:
On how to get Anne Hathaway into bed: “We talked about what we thought was sexy, about what were the things that interested us, and through the discussion became pretty intimate with each other.”
On sex scenes with Anne: “Annie and I had already had sex on film (in Brokeback Mountain). There’s something about the way Annie and I both work which is inherently very musical. It’s all about rhythm. There’s a rhythm to writing, there’s a rhythm to sports, there’s a rhythm to sex.”
On letting it all hang out on set: “Annie, because as a woman I think it’s harder. She said at one point, ‘Well, we’re both topless and we both show our butts.’ And I was like, ‘Hmm, but it’s a little different for you.’”
On admiration for his sister, Maggie: “I admire her and continue to admire her. That might play into the reason I don’t have much of a problem letting the women I’ve worked with shine. I love women.”
You know, call me crazy but, the more I hear about these sex scenes in Love and Other Drugs, the more I want to see the film. To be honest, the trailers for the film that I’ve seen thus far haven’t done much to grab my attention … the film strikes me as another of those throwaway romantic comedies that I see sometimes but do not feel compelled by any means to have to see … well, except for the fact that it stars Jake Gyllenhaal. I’m curious to see just how much of Jake we get to see in this new movie. For now, we’ll have to content ourselves with seeing Jake in photos shot for this new issue of Esquire magazine — which you can check out, after the jump … More »
Earlier today we saw video of Willow Smith‘s appearance on today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and right now we get to see video from Ellen‘s other guest on today’s show. Mariah Carey not only appears on today’s ep of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote her new album in stores today, Merry Christmas II You, but also to talk about her new pregnancy! As you may recall, the last time Mimi was on Ellen, she boldly drank champagne on the air to prove that she wasn’t pregnant then … this time, Ellen offered her another bubbly non-alcoholic drink to toast her happy news:
In this interview clip, Mariah reiterates to Ellen that she does NOT want to know the gender of her baby … and even if the did, she would not impose strict gender standards (pink if it’s a girl, blue if it’s a boy) on her baby … which is very surprising, actually. We all know what a girly girl Mariah Carey is … so I find it very interesting that she is planning not to impose her girliness on her baby if it turns out to be a girl. After the jump, check out a short preview clip of Mimi‘s interview which will air today in full on The Ellen DeGeneres Show … More »

Ricky Martin, newly openly gay pop star and father of twin boys he named Matteo and Valentino, will make an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Tuesday November 2 to be interviewed publicly for the first time about his decision to come out of the closet as well as his life as a single father of two. Here are a couple preview screencaps from Ricky‘s upcoming appearance on Oprah:
He was guarded about his sexuality for years and reserved about his new adventure as a family man – now Ricky Martin is sharing his joy of becoming a father via a surrogate mother on the Oprah Winfrey show. Ricky welcomed cameras to his home for a candid portrait of his happy family home life for his interview with Oprah, in which he talks about his sons and his sexuality for the first time. The 39-year-old Puerto Rican megastar quietly became father of twin boys, called Matteo and Valentino, in August 2008. Previously, the star has only released occasional pictures of himself with the two gorgeous children via his official Twitter account, then ‘came out’ on his website in March this year. The singer said at the time : ‘I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.’ But he has never before opened up about becoming father or finally going public with his sexuality … Ricky is on the chatshow conveyor belt to plug his new autobiography. Titled ‘Me’, it details his life, career and journey to officially come out. The book hits shops in the US next week. Meanwhile, the singer’s first new material in six years is due out before the end of the year. ‘The Best Thing About Me Is You’ is a described as an emotional duet featuring Ricky and Joss Stone and is the first track from a new studio album, due out next year.
Aww … look at Ricky‘s boys … they’re so big already. Despite the fact that we know that Oprah will not press Ricky on any tough questions, her show is the perfect platform for him to open up about his life now that he is out of the closet. After the jump, check out the preview video trailer for Ricky‘s upcoming appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show … More »
She also reveals the identity of her new husband
Back in February Shirley Manson revealed on Facebook that her band Garbage had started recording new music together. In May the Scottish goddess revealed the she secretly got married to an American whose identity she refused to disclose. This week, Manson made an in-person appearance at University of the West of Scotland and not only confirmed that a new Garbage album is on the way but she also revealed the identity of her new hubby:
Scottish singer Shirley Manson showed off her new husband for the first time yesterday. Manson appeared alongside US record producer Billy Bush in Paisley to talk to students at the University of the West of Scotland. In May, she told TV host Craig Ferguson that she had wed an American at a secret ceremony in Las Vegas, but until yesterday she been coy about revealing her new spouse’s identity. Grammy-nominated Bush has worked with bands including Green Day, Limp Bizkit, Korn and Muse. Edinburgh-born Manson, 44, who was previously married to sculptor Eddie Farrell, also confirmed she was recording a new album with her band Garbage. “I’m working on a record right now with the band. We’ve recorded quite a lot but it’s difficult to quantify,” she said. “It’s the first one in a long time. I took about five years off. I’d like to do some touring next year.” She did not elaborate on the musical direction of the new album or when it would be released. “We’re just winging it right now,” she said. Rumours of a new release had been circulating since Manson hinted in February that she had been spending time in a recording studio. The couple were in Paisley to give career advice to commercial music students. The secret of success, Manson revealed, was for artists to talk through their disagreements – and share the proceeds. “When you get into a band, whether you are – the main writer or whatever – split the money equal ways. Then you will have a happy band. They are doing the same work as you.” Bush warned students that the road to musical success was long and hard. He said: “There’s two things you have to accept in this industry. One is poverty and the other is failure. There’s a huge element of failure.”
Hot damn! This is great news. I was encouraged by the news last February that Garbage was back in the recording studio … but there had been nary a peep from them since so I was starting to lose hope that a new album was coming. I am SO thrilled to learn that not only can we expect a new album but a tour as well. And now that we know who Shirley got married to, I think we can send the happy couple all our love and congrats one more time. Shirley Manson may not give us news all the time but when she does, it’s the best news ever. Wee! Any Garbage fans out there? Who’s excited for a new album?!
Darlene Egelhoff is a housekeeper, y'all
Yesterday and today we got to know Lynn Patridge, mother of former Hills star Audrina Patridge, a little better and right now we get to learn more about fellow ex-Hills co-star Heidi Montag‘s mother Darlene Egelhoff. Darlene appeared on The Hills a few times to do battle with Spencer Pratt and was last seen on the show voicing her displeasure at all of the cosmetic surgeries Heidi had done to herself. In a new interview with Darlene, we learn that she is now totally cut off from her daughter … and broke. Darlene has been forced to take a job as a maid and launched a personal blog in order to try and reach out to her daughter:
Darlene Egelhoff, the mother of U.S. reality television personality Heidi Montag, says the recession has forced her to work as a maid. Egelhoff told TV’s “Inside Edition” she and her husband owned a restaurant for 21 years, but had to close it because of the economy. She said they have been struggling to pay their bills since and the only job she could find in Crested Butte, Colo., was cleaning houses. The celebrity mom admitted it has been awkward when a client recognizes her. “That’s been very humbling for me and I very much appreciate that experience because I don’t ever want to get full of myself and think I’m too good to do anything,” Egelhoff said. She also tearfully revealed she has not spoken to Montag in nearly nine months and doesn’t think her daughter knows what she has been going through. The mother and daughter became estranged after Egelhoff appeared on an episode of “The Hills” and showed her disappointment in Montag’s decision to undergo 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day. Egelhoff said she is so desperate to communicate with Montag she started a blog called “Metamorphosis of a Mother” hoping Montag will read it, “Inside Edition” said Thursday.
I have to say … I feel bad for Darlene. Forget that she has to find work as a maid, times are tough for a lot of people, working as a maid is honest work. What I feel bad about is how estranged she has been from her daughter because of her daughter’s lust for fame. It’s just really sad to see what reality TV does to some families. It’s very rare to hear of a story about how reality TV brings a family together … more often the case, moronic lust for quick fame on a TV show ends up ruining relationships. Darlene‘s official blog can be found HERE. I’m certain she will work tirelessly to try and mend fences with her daughter … but as long as Heidi is under Spencer‘s spell, Darlene will have a long time to wait. So sad :(

“I’ve always liked older men."
The Golden one Betty White is featured on the cover of this week’s issue of Parade magazine and in her coverstory interview, Betty opens up about what kind of men she likes, what she learned from her parents, her thoughts on marriage equality and more. Here is our first look at Betty‘s Parade coverphoto and some excerpts from her coverstory interview:
Don’t call her a cougar!
White she may lust after Robert Redford (who is 14 years her junior), Betty insists, “I’ve always liked older men. They’re just more attractive to me. Of course, at my age there aren’t that many left!” Apparently, that hasn’t presented much of an obstacle. “I’ve enjoyed the opposite sex a lot,” says White, whose beloved husband of 18 years, Allen Ludden, died in 1981. “Always have. Always will.”
Her parents passed down their comic timing—and puppy love.
“They had delicious senses of humor,” White says of her parents. Her father was a traveling salesman who would bring home jokes from the road. He and her mother were also animal people. “They would come back from a walk with a dog, saying, ‘Betty, he followed us home. Can we keep him?’ My parents had a cat named Toby who liked to sit on my crib. My mom always said that if Toby hadn’t approved of the baby, she’d have gone straight back to the hospital.”
She believes everyone should have the right to say “I do.”
White’s status as a gay icon dates to the mid-80’s popularity of The Golden Girls. “Gays love old ladies,” she says of the phenomenon, which saw fans from West Hollywood to New York City turn on their TVs between 9 and 9:30 on Saturday nights to watch the exploits of Rose & Co. “I don’t care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time—and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones—I think it’s fine if they want to get married. I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”
As if it weren’t possible to love her anymore, she goes and gets even MORE lovable … and wait ’til you see a few photos from her Parade photoshoot. Check out Betty White‘s Hallowe’en themed photos, after the jump … More »
She cheerleads for her daughter, calls Lauren 'LC' Conrad a "bitch" and more!
Last night Hollywood.tv ran into a very inebriated Lynn Patridge, mother of reality TV star Audrina Patridge (who was just axed from Dancing with the Stars), and Lynn was inspired to share her thoughts on a few things. First, she wanted to express how much she loves her daughter. Next, she wanted to express how unfairly her daughter was treated on DWTS. She also decided to chime in about Audriana‘s former Hills co-star Lauren LC Conrad … and call her a bitch. Yes, folks, it was all caught on video:
In an obscenity-laced rant caught on camera Wednesday night outside Hollywood hotspot Beso, Lynn Patridge swore her daughter was meant for bigger things and took aim at her daughter’s former The Hills castmates. “Audrina is going to fucking rise. And She’s got class … She’s a Polish, Catholic, fucking full-on Italian,” Lynn, smoking a cigarette, said into the camera. “Not only that, she was raised right.” During the five-minute diatribe, a friend attempted to intervene to stop the interview but Patridge, who admitted she’d been drinking, resisted. “I’ve been a celebrity mom for eight years through this Hills” bull–,” she said, “but Audrina is going to the next level… She’s got it in her. She’s a sweetie.” Lynn also addressed Audrina’s surprise DWTS elimination. “One door closes, another one opens. I was proud of her,” she says. “Last night, she fucking kicked ass . . . It’s all show business, baby, the show must go on” … she wasn’t so nice when asked about the “Hills girls” – her daughter’s costars in the MTV reality show. She called them “Hills tramps” and targeted Lauren Conrad in particular, calling her a “bitch.”
And I bet you thought YOUR mom has embarrassed you in public … I think Lynn Patridge takes the cake on embarrassing moms … well, at least for this week ;) After the jump, check out the full 5 minute drunken rant by Audrina‘s mother Lynn … More »

"I’m pretty sure I’m up shit’s creek right now."
David Arquette, who has split from his wife and TV producing partner Courteney Cox, just can’t seem to keep his big mouth shut when it comes to discussing matters pertaining to the end of his marriage … which is why big TV shows keep booking him for interviews. Today, Live with Regis & Kelly was able to capitalize on David‘s blabbermouth. In his interview, David shared that he broke down in tears after he had sex for the first time with a woman other than his wife and, naturally, simply had to share that information with the world:
David Arquette just can’t keep quiet about his break-up with Courteney Cox. After apologising for sharing too much in his last interview, Arquette, 39, returned to Howard Stern’s radio show today and revealed yet more cringe-worthy details about the end of his 11-year marriage. The actor revealed he cried after having sex for the first time he slept with a woman following his split from the Friends actress. ‘After the first girl I slept with … a few days later … I was, like, crying,’ he confessed. ‘It was the end of all the intimacy I shared with my wife. It was like a new thing. It was like … putting that away.’ He went on to claim that it wasn’t satisfying experience, explaining it lacked ‘that emotional love that I always had with Court.’ However, the missing intimacy didn’t seem to bother the actor as he revealed that he also slept with a blonde Australian he met at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. After spouting off, he realized he had revealed too much yet again, saying: ‘I’m pretty sure I’m up shit’s creek right now.’ Although this time around he was wise enough not to name and shame the mystery woman. Spurred on though by notorious shock jock Stern, Arquette also revealed the couple didn’t have a prenuptial agreement, meaning Arquette could get half of Cox’s fortune, which he said is worth around $100 million dollars. A short time later, the actor went on the chat show Live with Regis and Kelly to plug Scream 4, which he co-stars in with Cox and Neve Campbell. Arquette told the hosts he still has a good relationship with Cox despite their separation and went on to reveal that they had in fact gone for dinner together just the night before. He also revealed the two are just in different places in their lives, with Cox wanting ‘growth’ and him ‘feeling a little wild.’ And one thing Arquette was very adamant about? The actor insisted he had never cheated on his wife of 11 years, despite rumours to the contrary.
OH David … what a big mouth you have. As cringe-worthy as much of what comes out of Arquette‘s mouth is, I’m certain in the 11 years that Courteney has been married to him, she is WELL used to his childish antics. I have to say, I kinda enjoy hearing all the dumb stuff that seems to just fall out of his mouth … I mean, I feel bad for Courteney that he feels the need to spread their biz all over the place but he sure is entertaining to listen to. I wonder if he’ll be apologizing for his interview anytime soon. Scream 4 is still many months away from release … still PLENTY of time for David Arquette to give more interviews about his split from Courteney Cox. Ugh, poor thing.
