Mimi hits the jackpot, literally
It has been a few months since Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey filed for divorce (which came shortly after he had his massive Mariah back tattoo covered up in a show of absolute dunzoness) so the time is right, apparently, for Mimi to get back into the swing of dating again. There was a rumor a couple of months ago that Mimi and Brett Ratner were getting close romantically but that turned out to be false. Today we learn from TMZ that Mariah is apparently dating a billionaire named James Packer … and, get this, the two were brought together by MC‘s BFF Ratner. Could Mariah really have hit the jackpot with this rich new man? More »
Earlier this month it was reported that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards will be demoted (or cut out entirely) on the upcoming new season of the Bravo reality TV series and at the time, I figured the writing was on the wall for her BFF and RHOBH co-star Brandi Glanville. Brandi has been a constant source of conflict for every other person on the show for years now, save for Kim. When it was announced that Kim was being demoted (or fired, it’s not clear yet), I figured we’d be hearing similar news about Brandi … and today, that news has come. TMZ is reporting that Bravo has decided to axe Brandi because, well, she doesn’t really offer anything at all to the show. I have to say, I think firing Brandi from RHOBH is way overdue, she will not be missed by me. More »
Is the world ready for the first ginger Bond?
Remember back in December when rumors started to swirl that actor Idris Elba might be offered the role of James Bond after Daniel Craig passes the mantle of 007 to a new actor? Well, today we are hearing a new rumor that Idris may be out of the running for the role. For some reason, UK Bookies are saying the odds are more likely that Homeland actor Damian Lewis might become the next Bond and, apparently, that alone is enough to get everyone thinking that Lewis may get the role. Forgetting for a minute how much of a bummer it will be if Idris Elba does not become the next James Bond, the question becomes … Is the world really ready for a ginger Bond to save the day? More »

Uhhh, she done good.
I feel like Rihanna and Taylor Swift have this whole young and famous thing figured out—or at least, they’re doing it the way I think I’d do it. Active, casual (if not passionate) romances that may or may not last more than 6-9 months with various, famous hotties. I mean, this all just feels right. Last we heard, Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio had a thing going on (although DiCaprio maintained his singledom), but this is Rihanna! And, in my fantasy, she can’t just dedicate herself to Leo right now. So she’s been linking up with soccer/football star Karim Benzema—an excellent life choice, IMO. Click inside for more!

“He's overjoyed!" -- unnamed source
At the start of this month, we learned officially that Kanye West and his wife are expecting the birth of their second child (news that was hugely overshadowed by the release of Caitlyn Jenner‘s Vanity Fair magazine cover). Today we are HEARING from unnamed “sources” that the couple have already found out that they are expecting a son. Now, I think it would be very prudent to take this news with a grain of salt but considering the chances of this report being correct is 50/50, I suppose it’s not a terrible idea to start thinking about the possibility that Kanye West will have a son soon … can you imagine?

Life & Style magazine is reporting a rumor that our dear Britney Spears is secretly planning a big Las Vegas wedding with boyfriend Charlie Ebersol which I don’t necessarily believe but would be remiss if I didn’t pass along to all y’all. I mean, while I do doubt that Britney and Charlie are at the wedding phase of their relationship just yet, I would kick myself if those crazy kids did decide to get married and I failed to report the possibility that the wedding rumor might be true. Click below to read what L&S has to say about this possible Spebersol wedding rumor and see if YOU think it’s a good idea for Britney and Charlie to get hitched so soon. More »
Annie Leibovitz will shoot the photos
A new report out today is claiming that Bruce Jenner will appear on the cover and in the pages of an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair magazine as a woman after she completes her gender reassignment surgery. Earlier this week, a different report made the claim that Jenner has already undergone the surgery in secret and is currently recuperating here in LA. I’m more inclined to believe this VF report coupled with the gender reassignment surgery claim. Additionally, if true, famed photographer Annie Leibovitz has been tasked with shooting Jenner‘s Vanity Fair photos which will reveal to the world her new look as a woman. More »
PLEASE GODS, LET THIS BE TRUE!
Just yesterday we saw an amazing photo of Janet Jackson here in LA at rehearsals for her upcoming new TOUR which will feature music from her new ALBUM which she promises will be out this year. Today we hear that our first taste of JJ‘s new music may come within in the next 30 days. At this point, any information about the release of Janet‘s new music is speculative since no official announcement has been made … but if she is planning to release a new album and launch a new tour this year, then a single release in the next 4 weeks would fit into her timeline. HMMM. More »

WW's main squeeze
Superman has his Lois Lane and Spider-Man has his Mary Jane Watson … Wonder Woman has her Steve Trevor and according to a new report by Variety, it looks like WW‘s love interest may be played by actor Chris Pine. Altho nothing is official yet and Warner Bros. has offered a stern NO COMMENT, Variety reports that their sources maintain that Pine is in negotiations to play Steve Trevor in the forthcoming Wonder Woman movie alongside Gal Gadot. It has been commonly believed that Scott Eastwood (who is currently filming the Suicide Squad movie) might be playing the role of Steve Trevor but it turns out he turned down the chance to possibly get the role for a guaranteed role in SS. If Variety is right, then Chris Pine will play Wonder Woman‘s main man. More »
Last month we learned officially that Netflix renewed Marvel’s Daredevil for a second season to come in 2016. Shortly thereafter, actor Charlie Cox revealed which Daredevil characters he hoped might be featured in the show’s second season. He mentioned that he would like to see the villainous Bullseye make an appearance on the show as well as the anti-hero The Punisher … but I think it was very clear that his top choice for the next DD character to appear on the show is Elektra. Thanks to leaked audition tapes for DD season 2, it looks like Charlie is going to get his wish. It seems very likely that Elektra will be featured in Marvel’s Daredevil season 2. More »
