When Flowers Feud: Iggy Azalea vs. Azealia Banks

Page Six reports that Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks are embroiled in a Twitter feud. Azalea accuses of Banks of bringing race into it, and Banks calls Azalea names and says she doesn't deserve a Grammy. Not sure who's winning, but since Iggy Azalea gets more airplay, it looks like she's in the lead.

Bachelor in Paradise Couple Split

Don't worry, Marcus and Lacy are still going strong (for now)! Cody Sattler and Michelle Money have called it quits after six months of dating, Us Weekly reports. Sattler posted a message about the breakup on his Instagram:
First off I just want to say that I have experienced some of the best days of my life these past 6 months! I was blessed to have met and date an amazing woman and her daughter, who have made me a better person in all areas of my life. Unfortunately Michelle and I have decided it was in the best interest for both of us to move on from our relationship. Michelle and Brielle will always hold a special spot in my heart and I wish all the best for them. Michelle is someone I shared a relationship with but also someone I will always respect and consider a life long friend. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to go on "Bachelor in Paradise" and to experience such amazing things with a beautiful woman. Those feeling and memories are something I will always cherish! I personally want to say "THANK YOU" from the bottom of my heart to all the amazing fans who showed so much love and support for Michelle and I. You will never truly understand how much that meant to me! I look forward to what the future holds and will continue to always listen and follow my heart! Much LOVE & RESPECT Cody Code xoxo

Brad Pitt Distracting to Jurors

Brad Pitt was recently summoned to jury duty in Downtown Los Angeles, according to the Daily Mail. He did his civic duty by showing up and waiting all day, but was ultimately dismissed without getting picked as court officers decided that he would be too much of a distraction to the other jurors.

Outtie Original Blind Item - The Dimples Naughty List

Here is a roundup of the worst-behaved celebrities to stop in over the years:

1) Reality star. Was on a huge long-running hit reality show for MTV that was a spin-off from another MTV reality show. Currently single, and trying her hand at a hosting gig. By far the worst-behaved person to ever enter the bar. Came in with her publicist, and refused to look at or talk to anyone, except the publicist. No one was allowed to look at or talk to the reality star (per the publicist's instructions). All drink orders went through the publicist. "Reality Star would like a vodka cranberry."

2)  This actor formerly starred in a huge franchise that still has a rabid fanbase. Drinks were comped as a courtesy. Actor was obnoxiously drunk during his visit, and left zero tip.

North Korea-Themed Steve Carell Movie Cancelled

The same day that Sony pulled the release of the movie The Interview permanently, New Regency Productions cancelled production on their North Korean thriller starring Steve Carell. Gore Verbinski, who you may know as the director of The Ring and the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies, was set to direct the movie. Verbinski released the following statement exclusively to Us Weekly:
"Yesterday, I was told by New Regency and Fox that Fox will no longer be distributing the film. Prior to that, the film was green-lit and fully funded by New Regency with Fox distributing. I have been told in no uncertain words that based on the situation at Sony, Fox has now decided to not distribute the film. Without a distributor, New Regency was forced to shut the film down. I find it ironic that fear is eliminating the possibility to tell stories that depict our ability to overcome fear."

"School of Rock" Hitting Broadway

The latest film to get turned into a Broadway musical is 2003's School of Rock, which starred Jack Black. The world premiere is set for the Fall of 2015, and the team working on the adaptation includes Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey. Lloyd Webber will be writing original music, with lyrics penned by Glenn Slater, and Fellowes is writing the book. This will be Lloyd Webber's first Broadway musical since 2005, according to The Hollywood Reporter

Celebrity Real Estate - Dick Clark's Flintstone House

Dick Clark's former Malibu home has finally sold for $1,777,777. If that price seems low for Malibu, it's because the home only has one bedroom and two bathrooms. The home was designed by Phillip Jon Brown, and would look right at home in The Flintstones. All of those 7's hold some significance as well; Clark and his late wife Candy were married on 7/7/77. The LA Times has pictures of the property.

Sony Faces Third Class Action Lawsuit

Earlier this week, we told you that former employees had gotten together to sue Sony in a class-action suit. Since then, two more lawsuits have been filed. This one alleges violation of the California Customer Records Act, violation of the Confidentiality of Medical Information Act, negligence, and violation of the California Unfair Competition law, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The last charge is interesting, because that law applies to false advertising. In essence, the employees are asserting that Sony's delay in confirming the breach to its employees while they knew it was true all along was de facto false advertising. There will surely be many more lawsuits to follow in the wake of the breach.

Outtie Original Blind Item - The Dimples Nice List

Here is a roundup of some of the best-behaved celebrities to stop in over the years:

1) This former A list movie actress who still acts mostly kept to herself, but was polite in all of her interactions. She drank. A lot. Was completely hammered by the time she left. The rumors about her copious drinking are true.

2) This star of an almost network series was very sweet to both the staff and fans who approached her.

3) This beautiful actress is a main castmember on a network show that is currently airing its final season. She is really nice and down to earth, but nothing like what you would expect.

4) This celebrity offspring/reality star/hostess was really kind and generous with her American Express Black Card.

5) This former child actor who has continued acting into adulthood and has been a part of some huge TV Shows and movies does mostly voice work these days. He is awesome and bought rounds of shots for his friends except the one that was driving because he "didn't want him to die."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Money Louder Than Legal

 This model is claiming that an intimate tape will not hit the market because she does not need the money. That explanation is not correct. While we don’t know how much she does make modeling, the reason the tape will not be published is because she was paid off by the music man who stars in the tape with her.

Yes, he could have legally blocked the tape by simply refusing to sign a legal release, but he wanted to make this go away quickly and quietly, so he ponied up a big wad of cash instead. Actually, it wasn’t that big. Only about $100k. Still, money talks louder than legal threats. End of story.

In light of a new threat from the Sony Hackers, Sony has pulled both Franco and Rogen from all media appearances they had previously scheduled before the Christmas release of The Interview, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The threat reads as follows:

We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time. (If your house is nearby, you'd better leave.)

There was plenty of kink... and plenty laughter. 'I was like: 'Come on guys I know I'm not paying for this but I am expecting a show.' It was an interesting evening. Then going back to my wife and newborn baby afterwards... I had a long shower before touching either of them.' "

TV Line Blind Item - Pregnancy Shocker

A beloved series has lined up its first major 2015 guest star: The Stork! 

Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that an established program that is covered voraciously on this very site is planning to impregnate its leading lady (the character, not the actress!) early in the new year — and it’s safe to say no one will see the baby twist coming.
 

The pregnancy — the timing of which defies almost every television convention — has the potential to dramatically alter the DNA of the series. (And this is not a show on its last legs; this baby, and the subsequent implications, will likely be around for a good while). It also comes as the relationship between the mother and father is hardly on solid ground.

Fans of the couple will likely have a mixed reaction, with some complaining it’s way too soon for such a development, and others cheering the inevitable next step — marriage.
 

Bonus clues: The series in question airs on one of the Big 5 broadcast networks (i.e. not cable), and it has been around for more than two but fewer than six seasons.

The Daily Mail reports that Mel B has walked out on her husband after a series of furious arguments. Mel B still has yet to comment on either story.

Camille Cosby Speaks Out

Camille Cosby has finally broken her silence about the allegations surrounding her husband. CBS News reports that her statement was as follows:

"I met my husband, Bill Cosby, in 1963, and we were married in 1964. The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work. He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man, and a wonderful husband, father and friend. He is the man you thought you knew.

A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months. It is the portrait of a man I do not know. It is also a portrait painted by individuals and organizations whom many in the media have given a pass. There appears to be no vetting of my husband's accusers before stories are published or aired. An accusation is published, and immediately goes viral.

We all followed the story of the article in the "Rolling Stone" concerning allegations of rape at the University of Virginia. The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved to be untrue. Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband - until that story unwound.

None of us will ever want to be in the position of attacking a victim. But the question should be asked - who is the victim?"

Outtie Original Blind Item - Sony Music Throwback

In light of the Sony hack, here is a vintage Sony Music blind:

After the huge success of his debut solo album, this artist told Sony that he wanted to release his next album as a double CD. They told him no, double albums don't work, and he was under contract. The artist got upset; after all, he had just made Sony an insane amount of money. On one phone call to the artist's manager, a Sony executive stated "Tell that jumped up little f****t to do what he is told." Unbeknownst to the Sony executive, the phone call was recorded by the artist's manager. When the manager played the call back for the artist, the artist went off big time. That is what caused the rift between the artist and Sony, and why the artist wanted to get off the label. For his debut album, the artist let Sony mould his look 100% because Sony promised him that if he had success, they would give him more creative freedom on future albums. He also wanted to come out, which Sony shut down because his fan base was largely comprised of young girls. To add insult to injury, another band released a double CD for Universal Music Group around the same time that the artist's double CD was denied; that band's double CD was a huge success. At that point, the relationship between the artist and Sony was beyond repair, and Sony finally released him from his contract. There is a lot of symbolism about the rift in one of the artist's music videos for his second album.

Goop Sells Bras For Itty Bitty Titties

However, the bras are only available in band sizes 32 and 34, and despite theoretically going all the way up to a DD cup size, are described as "running slightly small." The bras will cost you $80 a pop, and are non-returnable, so you better hope that you lowball your size correctly the first time that you order!

Scott Stapp Assassination Threat

Scott Stapp, former Creed frontman, is in the news again, this time for threatening to assassinate President Obama, TMZ reports. Stapp had escaped from a mental facility last month, and his sister-in-law called 911 after she saw him cruising around his neighborhood, shirtless, on a bicycle. The sister-in-law told the 911 dispatcher that Stapp was claiming that he was a CIA agent, and that he had been given a mission to kill Obama. Stapp's wife told the 911 dispatcher that Stapp had supposedly found CIA documents online, printed out 400-600 pages, stuffed them in a book bag, and rode off on his bicycle. When the police caught up to Stapp, he told them that his wife had stolen $6 million from him and had stolen his truck, which was why he was riding around on his bicycle. Police did not think that Stapp showed enough signs of mental instability to warrant a psych hold, so for now he is free to roam the neighborhood on his bicycle.

Bethenny Working Hard For Camera Time on RHONY

The new season of Real Housewives of New York is currently filming, and Bethenny Frankel is reportedly working overtime to ensure she gets maximum camera time. Page Six reports that Frankel showed up at a recent party for Sonja "Sexy J" Morgan, where she stormed past the step-and-repeat area refusing to stop for pictures. Once inside, Frankel continuously took digs at Morgan, and at one point declared, "I don't do anything fake!" Sonja was hopefully too distracted by her new 24-year-old model boyfriend to be offended.

Ashanti Has a Stalker

Page Six reports that a fan of Ashanti has been accused of sending X-rated text messages to the singer. His trial begins on Thursday, and he represented himself at the jury selection. He worked the courtroom like a comedy club, saying "How's everybody doing?...My Name is David Hurd. Excuse my attire. I been in the pens for 12 hours. Just letting you know." A few people chuckled. Not everyone was amused. One older gentlemen demanded to be released from the case, stating "Your honor, I can't listen to this! I can't treat this case fairly with this guy representing himself." Everyone's a critic.

Leah Messer Returning To Teen Mom 2 After All

A few weeks ago, Leah Messer tweeted to a fan that she would not be returning to Teen Mom 2, as she did not want her drama to appear on TV anymore. Messer has apparently changed her mind, because Us Weekly is reporting that she has officially signed on for Season 6 of Teen Mom 2. Messer has worked things out with Calvert, at least for the time being. I'm sure the paycheck didn't hurt either.

Abigail Breslin in Cat Fight With Taylor Swift

Abigail Breslin has been sending catty tweets about Taylor Swift, Us Weekly reports. Breslin tweeted: "Cuz darling I'm a nightmare dressed like an emotionally unstable cat lady." Us Weekly attributes the dig to Swift tweeting Breslin's ex-boyfriend, but they're really making a story out of nothing (as witnessed by Breslin's copious tweets about cats). 


But the picture Us Weekly used in the headline was worth the whole fake story.
