Betty White Does ‘Parade’ Magazine

“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 »

Christina Aguilera Does British ‘InStyle’ Magazine

Her first magazine cover since her split from her husband

Redbook magazine may have scored Christina Aguilera‘s first interview post break-up with husband Jordan Bratman but British In Style magazine is the first to put Xtina on the cover of their mag now that she’s a newly single woman. Dubbed the Party Issue, here is our first look at Xtina‘s British In Style magazine coverphoto:

Thus far, In Style has yet to update their official website with any other photos or info from Xtina‘s coverstory article so we don’t know if she discusses her pending divorce with Jordy in her interview or not. My guess is that this interview was likely done before news of her split broke so we may likely learn nothing new. To be honest, I’m not crazy about this photo … I hate the leopard print (tacky) and I’m not fond of the big braid (meh) so … let’s just hope the rest of the photos from her shoot turn out better ;)

‘Star’ Magazine Maintains That ‘Real Housewives’ Star Kim Zolciack Is Pregnant

And they've got a photo to prove it

Yesterday Star magazine published a story online that made the claim that Kim Zolciak, star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is pregs by her current beau Kroy Biermann. As soon as that story came out, Kim‘s mother denied the claim as false. Today, Star magazine is sticking by its story and is hitting back with proof that Kim is pregs … proof in the form of a photo of Kim holding a gender test reportedly for her unborn child:

She may be laughing it off but Kim Zolciak’s pregnancy is no joke. Star can confirm The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is indeed with child — despite the fact that she called our report yesterday “hilarious.” Kim’s former lesbian lover, DJ Tracy Young is standing by her story, published exclusively in this week’s issue of Star … “While I was staying at her house in Atlanta, I watched Kim do numerous pregnancy tests all of which came back positive,” Tracy tells Star. “Further to that, we went together to a local Target store where we purchased prenatal vitamins as advised by her doctor.” Adds Tracy, “For her to deny it is ridiculous but it doesn’t surprise me in the least. It’s typical Kim with an agenda. Who knows what that is. Maybe her own show??” In these exclusive photos, Kim proudly displays the gender test she took and points toward a positive pregnancy test. “It’s quite amusing she had me photograph the entire process and send the pictures to her mother via email. Why she would deny this I don’t understand.” Still, Tracy sends her congratulations to Kim. “I wish her and her growing family all the best.”

HMMM … it looks like Star magazine’s photo successfully hits back at Kim and her mother’s denials. In the end, a “secret” like this cannot stay hidden forever … but it sounds like Kim is gonna keep as mum as possible for as long as she can. I’m thinkin’ she’s pregs … and is trying to figure out a way to capitalize on the news. Might Kim Zolciak be jockeying for her own Bethenny Getting Married-type spin-off show of her own? HMMMM.

Chris Evans, As Captain America, Does ‘Entertainment Weekly’ Magazine

Another look at 'The First Avenger'

Back in July we got our first look at Chris Evans in costume as Captain America when the first promo footage from the film was screened at 2010 San Diego Comic-Con but today we get a better, more clear look at The First Avenger in full costume on the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine … behold:

For fans of superhero movies, the most patriotic holiday on next year’s calendar won’t fall on July 4th, but exactly 18 days later. That’s when Paramount Pictures will release Captain America: The First Avenger, a big budget adaptation of the Marvel Comics shield-baring super-soldier. The new issue of Entertainment Weekly offers your first look at star Chris Evans in the hero’s red, white and blue threads — but you can get a peek at the man in uniform right here, right now … “At the time, I remember telling a buddy of mine, ‘If the movie bombs, I’m fucked. If the movie hits, I’m fucked!’” After declining the part three times, Evans took a meeting with Marvel execs and Johnston and was dazzled by their plans for the movie. He still felt wary about suiting up for Captain America — but then he had an epiphany. “I was just scared,” he says. “I realized my whole decision making process was fear based, and you never want to make a decision out of fear.’” Evans signed a six-picture deal with Marvel to play the character, and he has no regrets: “I can’t believe was almost too chicken to play Captain America.” The movie — which also serves to set up Marvel’s 2012 superhero team-up, The Avengers — hews closely to Captain America’s WWII-era origins … “The interesting thing about this character is that he’s an everyman who in the course of a few minutes become a perfect human specimen. That has to create some interesting personal issues,” says Johnston. “I saw it as an opportunity to make a superhero movie that felt real, that didn’t have to rely on an overabundance of fantasy elements.”

I mean, you don’t get more All-American than Captain America … or Chris Evans. He’s got the handsome, guy next door look down pat and seems like the perfect choice to play America’s comic book super soldier Captain America. I’m not quite sure how I feel about the costume, tho … I’ll need to see more, full-size photos but … doesn’t Chris‘s head look superimposed on the body featured on this magazine cover? I must admit, this incarnation of the Captain America costume is starting to grow on me … it looks like a uniform first and a superhero costume second. I want to see more … but at this point, I’m happy with what I’ve been seeing thus far. What do you think?

Conan O’Brien Does ‘Rolling Stone’ Magazine

"I felt like I'd just been in a car accident ... It almost made me cry."

Late night talk show host and all around funnyman Conan O’Brien, whose new TBS talk show Conan will premiere in just a few short weeks, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue Rolling Stone magazine. In his coverstory interview, Conan opens up about the depression he felt in the wake of losing his hosting gig on The Tonight Show and explains what his life was like after he completed his nationwide Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour. Here is our first look at Conan on the cover of RS mag and some excerpts from his coverstory interview:

In July, shortly after his Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour wrapped up, Conan O’Brien began visiting the set of his new talk show, at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California. For various reasons, the show had not been staffed yet, nor had the set been built, so on those days, O’Brien would occasionally pause en route to his office and stand alone in a giant, empty warehouse … O’Brien had lost his dream job as host of The Tonight Show in January, at a speed (seven months!) almost as humiliating as the circumstances of his departure (ousted for Jay Leno, which is the comedy-world equivalent of being left at the altar for a cast member of Jersey Shore). “My wife says those first couple of months, the thing I said most often was, ‘Wait a minute, what just happened?’” O’Brien recalls. “Those weeks after the tour, where not much was going on, Conan was miserable,” confirms his wife, Liza Powel, a blunt and dryly funny former advertising executive with whom O’Brien has two children. “That was when he was the most depressed.” Powel says she had “all sorts of grand designs” about keeping her idled spouse busy: He would be responsible for camp drop-offs, he would cook dinner at least one night a week. None of which ended up happening. O’Brien did go for long bicycle rides, and read lots of history books. At a parents’ night at their son Beckett’s preschool, there was a stack of volunteer sign-up sheets, and O’Brien, who still had too much time on his hands, became overly ambitious and started signing up for everything: “Oh, I’d love to come talk to the kids about natural history!” “He was in the house all the time,” Powel recalls. “I said, ‘This can’t last – it’ll drive us crazy!’ Literally every 10 minutes, he’d poke his head in the room and say, ‘I don’t wanna bother you, but do you know where the Band-Aids are?’ ‘I don’t wanna bother you, but do you know how to use the phone?’ He was so sweet about it, and I felt like such a jerk. But seriously, I almost rented an office for him.” The morning after O’Brien’s final ­Tonight Show – his second-highest- rated episode ever, quadrupling his average nightly viewership – he and Powel drove up to a resort in Montecito. “I felt like I’d just been in a car accident,” O’Brien says. “Like a crazy mix of elation, anger, sorrow. Confusion was a big one.” That night, when they entered the dining room and the other guests stood up and applauded, O’Brien says, “It almost made me cry.”

This Rolling Stone excerpt continues after the jump, where you will also find a photo from Conan‘s RS photospread as well as behind the scene video from the shoot … More »

Um … this shizz better BE on the next season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

‘Playgirl’ Magazine Offers $100k To ‘Glee’s Mark Salling & Chord Overstreet To Pose Nekkid

That'll show 'GQ' magazine who's boss!

In response to those racy photos in GQ magazine of Glee stars Dianna Agron and Lea Michele stripped down to their bras and panties, Playgirl magazine has made a serious off to Glee stars Mark Salling

… and newcomer Chord Overstreet

… to pose nekkid within the pages of their magazine — to the tune of $100,000.00 each:

“Glee” stars Mark Salling and Chord Overstreet have been offered $100,000 to pose for raunchy women’s magazine Playgirl … And they are offering the pair a massive $100,000 pay cheque to strip off for the publication, which has previously seen stars including Brad Pitt and Keith Urban undress for sexy photo shoots. A representative for the magazine says, “We would be very willing to pay for them both – up to $100,000. And it wouldn’t have to be fully X-rated, either.” The news comes just days after officials at the Parents Television Council fiercely criticizued Agron and Michele for posing as sexy cheerleaders in the new GQ spread, branding the photographs borderline “paedophilia”.

I, for one, would chip in some of my personal funds to sweeten the deal in order for the guys to say YES and strip down. Maybe we can start a collection to get even more money for them? Who’s with me?

Yeah, I understand that both Mark and Chord have, sadly, turned down Playgirl’s offer but … we can always hope they’ll change their minds, can’t we?

Ryan Gosling Does ‘Interview’ Magazine

Don't call him Ryan Reynolds

Canadian hottie Ryan Gosling is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Interview magazine and in his coverstory interview, Gosling explains how he often gets mistaken for another Canadian hottie … Ryan Reynolds. Elsewhere in the interview, Gosling opens up about his time on The Mickey Mouse Club and explains how even as a young man he was the object of many older womens’ affection. Here is our first look at Ryan‘s Interview coverphoto and some excerpts from the accompanying interview:

If you ever run into Ryan Gosling on the street, try not to confuse him with Ryan Reynolds … “I get that a lot,” the Notebook actor tells funnyman Steve Carell in the November issue of Interview magazine about getting mistaken for Scarlett Johansson’s hubby. “I do think it’s because we’re both Canadian.” He continues, “I can’t tell you how many times people go, ‘Are you Ryan?’ And I go, ‘Yeah.’ And they say, ‘Can I get a picture?’ Then they take the picture and realize, in that moment, that I’m not Ryan Reynolds. I can see the disappointment in their faces.” Gosling also reveals that when he starred in Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club alongside Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, he would sneak off to Disney World’s Pleasure Island entertainment district. “It was geared toward an older crowd,” he says. “I remember there was one guy who I became friends with. He would sneak us in and we would go to a club there called 8Trax and dance with the secretaries, who were grinding on us. Now, that sounds completely inappropriate. I can’t imagine how it was possible.” Now about those hot bicep-baring pics in the magazine, Gosling warns Carell, “I should let you know before we get into this that the pictures which will be accompanying this interview are basically of me in tight, wet T-shirts and tiny leather jackets going around in the rain and pretending that I’m a lot cooler than I am.”

Yeah, I can understand how folks can confuse Ryan Gosling with Ryan Reynolds … they’re both hot and they’re both recognizable … I’m sure it’s easy to get them confused in person, especially in all of the excitement over meeting such men in person. That being said, *I* would never be able to get the two men mixed up … because I love them each so much, for such different reasons. Wanna see two reasons why I love Ryan Gosling so much? Check out a couple photos from Gosling‘s Interview magazine photospread, after the jump … More »

Jane Lynch Does ‘More’ Magazine

Jane Poses In A 'Racy' Photo Of Her Own

Earlier this week a few Glee castmembers caused quite a stir with their racy photospread in the new issue of GQ magazine and today we learn that fellow Glee castmate Jane Lynch is trying to get in on the fun. Jane is featured in the new issue of More magazine and in one of her photos, she is surrounded by scantily clad men … but before we get to that, let’s check out Jane Lynch on the cover of More magazine:

Always one to one-up the kids of McKinley High in her role as Sue Sylvester, Glee star Jane Lynch didn’t pass up the opportunity to show the world what those stuffy sweatsuits on the show cover up. While she may not be posing panty-clad next to a locker, like Lea Michele, or rocking a skimpy school uniform, like Dianna Agron, Lynch does prove in a photoshoot for More magazine that she can get racy, too. The actress, 50, dons a leopard print ensemble in one picture and cozies up to a furry friend in another, all the while sharing the tongue-in-cheek photo-op with hunky, half-naked men. But Glee’s Cheerios coach has a serious side, as she reveals in an accompanying interview. She has been sober for nearly 10 years after she decided to ditch her “drinking culture” roots when she was 31. Although she says her problem was mild, she says she was sick of waking up hungover. “Relatively speaking, my personal bottom was rather benign,” she says. She’d joke at 12-step meetings, “Had I know I’d be telling my story over and over again, I would have made it a lot better.” The actress is settling down with her wife, psychologist Lara Embry, whom she met last year at a lesbian rights fundraiser.

So … wanna see Jane surrounded by a group of half-nekkid men? Check out the photo, after the jump … More »
