Yahoo Travel Blind Item - The Concierge

A hotel guest is demanding a bag of potato chips — that are only available on another continent.
Such is the job of a high-end luxury hotel concierge, to whom rich and influential guests (who are never told “no”) turn when they need something done, no matter how crazy or difficult it may be.
 “When someone comes up to you and wants something, you don’t ask him, ‘How do I do this?’” says Frank Hernandez, the lead concierge at Halekulani, a five-star luxury hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii. “You need to be confident that, ‘I got this; I will take care of this, so don’t worry. I will let you know when it’s here.’ That’s what guests love to hear.”
Frank once helped a concierge at another Hawaii hotel fly in a brand of potato chips that are sold only in Africa for a prominent hotel guest. (Frank describes the guest as a “very, very well known” award-winning film actress.)
“She just really wanted these chips,” remembers Frank, and a bag of Ruffles just wouldn’t do. So the concierge at the Maui hotel where the snack-craving guest was staying set the ball in motion: he called another Les Clefs d’Or concierge in Africa, who picked up a few bags of the chips, boxed them up and put them on a flight to Honolulu. And, no, the chips didn’t travel via FedEx or UPS. Frank says the concierge bought a seat just for the chips. (Just imagine what the passenger seated next to the potato chips must have thought: Is this my seatmate or an in-flight snack?)
It was at this point that the Maui concierge pulled Frank into the Great Chip Airlift. “He called me and said, ‘Frank, I need your help!  There’s a bag of chips arriving into Honolulu and I need you to go to the airport and find it,’” Frank says. “So I had to physically go to the airport, speak to the airline, the staff, and the flight’s chief steward. I promised them complimentary room nights and lavish dinners and anything that they needed.” Frank found the chips and booked them on a flight from Honolulu to their final destination in Maui, where they finally arrived for the actress’ snacking pleasure.
The final tally of her big chip airlift: six flights and $12,000 worth of airline tickets. At that price tag, to paraphrase that old ad slogan, bet she couldn’t eat just one.

Jackie Collins Talks Hollywood's Treatment of Women

Jackie recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter, where she talked about Hollywood's treatment of women. The publication quotes her as follows:

"We know Hollywood is shit to women. Women over 35 now are playing grandmothers. That’s what it’s down to. It’s absolutely crazy. And then, 50-year old actresses are all going and getting their faces done and it’s doesn’t look good. It looks good on some people, but on a lot of them — men, too. Have you seen that man with the craggy face, and he’s just had his eyes done, so he’s got these little, puppy-fresh eyes on this craggy old face? And so I think, men and women should cut back on it a bit, because it doesn’t do them favor. Age is a number. What did Mark Twain say? He said, something about age is…I’ll think of it."

And on 50 Shades of Grey:
"It’s great that she’s sold so many books and sold so many movie tickets. I did see the movie, yeah. I thought the movie was very beautiful and beautifully shot, but not sexual. It wasn’t sexy the movie. ... I had a big drink and a pizza while I was watching it, and I was like, ‘Are we going to see his dick or what?’ No."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Return the Sperm

While this dark-haired TV star and those around her are claiming that her relationship with her man is over for good, don’t put any money on it!
She wants another baby. Just one more, she claims. And she wants all of her kids to have the same father. That would require him – or his sperm – to come back into the picture.
We don’t know if it would be a temporary or permanent arrangement – or whether there would need to be some sort of compensation for his “services” – but it certainly does add an interesting twist to their breakup.
So, if you were thinking that her good-looking ex was gone for good… you will have to think again!

Patti LuPone Shows Broadway Audience Who's Boss

At a recent performance of the play Shows for Days, an audience member kept texting throughout the performance. Patti LuPone does not have time for that shit. Page Six reports that LuPone snatched that bitches phone, and kept it for the duration of the performance. Patti LuPone issued the following statement:

"We work hard on stage to create a world that is being totally destroyed by a few rude, self-absorbed and inconsiderate audience members who are controlled by their phones. When a phone goes off or when an LED screen can be seen in the dark it ruins the experience for everyone else. I am so defeated by this issue that I seriously question whether I want to work on stage anymore. Now I'm putting battle gear on over my costume to marshall the audience as well as perform."

Joel McHale Talks X-Files Reboot and Michael Eisner

Joel McHale recently sat down for an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, where they talked to him about a variety of topics. Here are a few of them:

On the X-Files Reboot:
"I’m an alien and I kill both Mulder and Scully and it’s over. It happens in the first episode and the next five looks back on what happened. No, you can imagine how much I can say. I’m playing a conservative talk show host and it’s the time of my life. I loved that show growing up. Duchovny and Anderson have a chemistry that comes along once in a century. And it’s one of the best-written shows to ever exist."

On Michael Eisner's comments about women who are both beautiful and funny:
"Clearly he’s wrong. To say that it’s really hard to find a beautiful woman who is funny is wrong. I do think that it’s hard to find movie stars in general. Think about the number of people who have come here and the number of people who’ve gotten shots. They give you a big movie to star in and think of how many of those people don’t make it. The list goes on and on. It’s hard to find bonafide movie stars. It’s very difficult to find someone who the entire world says, “We will watch you.” Finding a superstar is so rare. I know so many insanely good actors who don’t work or they work a little. A Harrison Ford and a Sandra Bullock only come along once in a while — they are special, they are different and they have something that isn’t tangible."

Bill Murray Went To His First Comic-Con, And It Was Awesome

Bill Murray attended San Diego's Comic-Con for the first time to promote his new movie Rock the Kasbah. Entertainment Weekly has some of the highlights from his panel:

On co-star Bruce Willis:
"We have an ancient history I wasn’t aware of…when I was on Saturday Night Live, Bruce was a page. It’s a job you take where you’re kind of a slave. It’s like an intern-slave. His job was to refill the M&M and peanut bowls in the actors’ dressing rooms. Years later, after a few tequilas, he said, [doing a reasonably growly Willis impression] ‘Only you and Gilda were nice to me.’ He’s all right. We had a fun time.”

On Miley Cyrus:

“I’m gonna say this officially: Miley Cyrus is good. I was not particularly convinced, but Miley Cyrus is really f—ing good. She can really sing. I thought she was a knucklehead crazy girl, the kind of girl you’d want to go on a road trip with. But she can really sing. She floored everybody: Paul Shaffer, George Clooney. I don’t wanna hear any bad rapping on Miley Cyrus.”

On his favorite role:
“Once upon a time, I did save the city of New York. And I had the coolest damn car to drive around Manhattan.”

On his upcoming Netflix Christmas special:
“We did a goofy Christmas show, which was a great story we [Murray, Glazer, and Sofia Coppola] wrote. We had a bunch of unusual people. We had Buster Poindexter, Dave Johansen, Jenny Lewis, Rashida Jones, the band Phoenix. We had Paul Shaffer, Jason Schwartzman, and then out of nowhere comes Miley Cyrus.”

Giuliana Rancic Leaving E! News

Page Six reports that after more than 10 years, Giuliana Rancic is leaving E! news. Page Six has a very verbose source that says the reason behind the departure is none other than Maria Menounos:

"It’s the battle of the bitches. They’re like oil and water. They cannot stand each other. They’ve always been rivals. Maria sees Giuliana as competition and it goes back years. They never speak and they won’t appear on-set together. It’s kind of unspoken that if she is in the building, Giuliana wants nothing to do with her. Maria doesn’t have any issues with Giuliana, she sees her as a role model. Giuliana doesn’t feel the same way. Giuliana knows it’s a sinking ship and she’s had an awful year. It’s half her decision to leave and half getting pushed out."

Giuliana Rancic will still appear on Fashion Police, and host E! red carpets.

Wine and Sass Blind Item - The Psycho Bunch

This A+ Lister is going through a divorce that will probably end up messy.

He was caught having an affair with this B+ List actress years ago, and he fell very much in love with her and never got over going back to his wife to win an Oscar instead of following his heart. She's been obsessed with him ever since, and even got married to make him jealous. She basically methodically plans her entire life around making him jealous. There are thousands of blind items all over the internet about what a closet nutter she is, even though she looks perfect to the outside world. Her husband, another A-list actor, knows this is the case and keeps her on a short leash after discovering some incriminating texts between the former affair monsters.

Now that the A+ Lister is available, the B+ Lister is in 'snag him before someone else does' overdrive. Her husband is on a promotional tour at the moment for a big project, and she is more than willing to put herself in the right place at the right time. She talks about what a perfect blended family they will be when they can finally be together. The Brady Bunch delusion is strong in this one.


What does the A+ Lister think? He's all for it. He loves her, and he'd call her right now if he wasn't scared of a huge scandal on top of a scandal. The only thing he loves more than her are his political aspirations that are now in jeopardy. But he's not above a well-placed phone call to her current husband in order to move things along. Expect to hear another divorce announcement in the next year.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Camel Light's Back

This comics-related film has not yet been released, but it will likely be a big hit. It will also probably make this actress who stars in it famous. On the cusp of this impending fame, producers are actively looking for ways to push our actress into the spotlight.

Hooking her up with one of her male costars would be a tried and true tactic. And, in this case, they wouldn’t have to try too hard… because she’s already hooked up with one of them in real life! However, don’t look for the producers to promote this particular relationship in their promotion of the film.

Why not? Because our actress is in a relationship with another man. For now, at least.

Oh, and our famous actor is married. For now, at least.

It’s not the first time he’s done this. It’s not even the second or third time. However, this one isn’t some rando pickup at a bar. This one is the straw that broke the camel light’s back.

Brian Grazer Admits To Making Shitty Movies

Producer Brian Grazer recently sat down for an interview with The Atlantic, where he talked career regrets. The publication quotes him as follows:

"I agreed to be part of a movie called Cowboys & Aliens. I don't like cowboys, or aliens! But there were a lot of superstars involved with it—Ron Howard; Steven Spielberg; the director of Iron Man, Jon Favreau. I remember having this one meeting, an early meeting, and they're talking about the title, Cowboys and Aliens. I said, 'We aren't really calling it that, are we?' [The others said] 'Yeah, of course we are!' I was going, I don't get this at all. Every once in a while I rationalize quality. There are so many decision you make, and you're trying to do excellence. We know what excellence is. We know what better food is versus not good food. But there's a rationalizing process—that's good enough. Anytime the light bulb goes, that's good enough, it's shitty!"

Celebrity Real Estate - El Duderino Edition

Jeff Bridges, aka The Dude, is selling his Montecito ranch for $29.5 million. That money will buy you 19.5 acres of grounds, and a 9,500 square foot house which features five bedrooms, a theater, two guesthouses, walking trails, and an aloe collection. This was the Bridges main family residence where they raised their children; they bought the property 20 years ago from Kenny Rogers. Also included on the grounds: a body cast from The Big Lebowski. See pictures of the property at Curbed.

Laura Prepon Talks Scientology

Laura Prepon recently sat down for an interview with Scientology's Celebrity magazine, where she talked about the religion. The publication quotes her as follows, as reprinted by Us Weekly:

"When I first got into Scientology, I did Personal Values and Integrity and then Overcoming Ups and Downs in Life. These courses touched on the observations I was aware of when I was younger. It was right there in black and white. It was amazing, and I felt that finally something was speaking my language. It totally connected with me. Pretty soon after that I got onto the Purification Rundown, and I started moving up the Bridge. The auditing has stripped away all of this charge, false ideas, decisions and mis-emotions that were affecting me. I recently had one of my biggest cognitions in a New Era Dianetics session. I spotted this decision I made a long time ago that was affecting me to this day. It was a huge realization…When you really cognate that you are a thetan and you have a mind and body, and that the MEST universe does not control you - it puts things into perspective. It takes the weight off you and things become very easy. Things don't bother me that had before," she continued. "I remember I was doing a show with an amazing actor, and we were waiting to hear the fate of our show. He turned to me one day and asked, 'How are you always so relaxed? Nothing seems to bother you. I want to know what you are doing...' I take that as such a compliment and testament to the auditing I have done."

I just have one thing to say. WHERE'S SHELLY?


Michael Douglas Talks Young American Actor Crisis

Michael Douglas recently sat down for an interview with The Independent, where he talked about what he perceived to be the crisis with young American actors. The publication quotes him as follows:

"There’s something going on with young American actors - both men and women - because the Brits and Australians are taking many of the best American roles from them. Clearly, it breaks down on two fronts. In Britain they take their training seriously while in the States we’re going through a sort of social media image conscious thing rather than formal training. Many actors are getting caught up in this image thing which is going on to affect their range. With the Aussies, particularly with the males it’s the masculinity. In the US we have this relatively asexual or unisex area with sensitive young men and we don’t have many Channing Tatums or Chris Pratts, while the Aussies do. It’s a phenomena. There’s a crisis in young American actors right now. Everyone’s much more image conscious than they are about actually playing the part."

In Case You Didn't Already Loathe Ariana Grande...

Ariana Grande recently popped into a donut shop with her backup dancer boyfriend, where they decided to lick the donuts that were within tongue's reach (which you can watch below). Page Six reports that when an additional donut tray is brought out, Grande says, "What the fuck is that? I hate Americans. I hate America." Ariana Grande took to her twitter to state that when she said "I hate America," what she really meant was "I hate childhood obesity." I'd love to see the contortions that her PR firm pulled while coming up with that explanation!

Lainey Gossip Blind Item - His Biggest Problem

There were a lot of women. Oklahoma was a few years ago. But Oklahoma was certainly not the one who was the most recent, although the most recent, professional turned personal, that I know of at least, is also not that recognisable, for now. She’s waiting for her moment.


Still, these affairs were not the biggest problem. The biggest problem is one he developed on the set of his most recent project. It started with pills and an injury a few years ago. Somehow he was able to function through that. Recently though he was shooting on location. He was a mess. He would go missing overnight. Not the prescription pills now but a hard drug. A very dangerous one. Not the party kind but the kind that brings you down, often alone, to escape. One that not too long ago took the life of a major, major talent. So it’s not the lovers that made him unsuitable for home. This is why she didn’t trust him at home. This is why she had to shake him up. But it’s not like he can get help openly. Not now, when so much is riding on him, with so much coming up. And that’s always been how Hollywood works. Your health is not the priority when there’s a multi-million dollar marketing strategy in place and so many stories to tell. So, sure, he has a support system, a lot of people out there looking out for him. But… is that the right objective?

Producers will put up with a lot of problems (alcohol, dr*gs, family drama, bad relationships, legal problems, etc.). In fact, in her case, those sorts of allegations actually helped to keep her profile high!

But she did the one thing that you can’t get away with. You can show up looking and acting a mess… but you MUST show up! She didn’t show up for work, which violated her contract, and now she’s out. She’s only lying about it to save face. Unfortunately, that’s about the only thing she’s saved. The girl is broke.

Former Disney CEO Inserts Foot In Mouth About Funny Attractive Women

Recently, Michael Eisner had this to say in a public conversation with Goldie Hawn, as quoted by Entertainment Weekly:

"From my position, the hardest artist to find is a beautiful, funny woman. By far. They usually—boy am I going to get in trouble, I know this goes online—but usually, unbelievably beautiful women, you being an exception, are not funny.”

Instead of apologizing, he thought it would be best to dig himself in deeper. Eisner released the following statement to Entertainment Weekly:

"In the context of a public conversation with Goldie Hawn in which I was complimenting her on being both beautiful and funny, I said such a combination is hard to come by in Hollywood. I certainly did not say Goldie was the only one. My point was simply that Goldie, unlike many, has not been defined exclusively as one or the other.”

The Hollywood Reporter reached out to Kathy Griffin for a reply, here's an excerpt from her statement:

"Influencers and decisionmakers who share the views that Eisner was stupid enough to say out loud actually decide whether or not I work, my career and sometimes my personal fate. People who share his views, and all the other men who think the things about women that he is expressing verbally, should simply be subjected to a panel of women — women of my choosing — who decide his career fate and legacy based on his physical appearance.

Our first assignment will be to make him actually look at himself in the mirror. Naked."

Paul McCartney A Little Bitter About John Lennon

Paul McCartney recently sat down for an interview with Esquire UK, where he talked about John Lennon. The magazine quotes him as follows:

"John did a lot of great work, yeah. And post-Beatles he did more great work, but he also did a lot of not-great work. Now the fact that he's now martyred has elevated him to a James Dean, and beyond. So whilst I didn't mind that – I agreed with it – I understood that now there was going to be revisionism. It was going to be: John was the one."

And talking about sharing writing credits with Lennon, McCartney had this to say:

"What happened, when we were kids we were looking for what to call our songs. We had a meeting with Brian Epstein, John and me. I arrived late. John and Brian had been talking. “We were thinking we ought to call the songs, Lennon and McCartney.” I said, “That’s OK, but what about McCartney and Lennon? If I write it, what about that? It sounds good, too.” They said, “OK, what we’ll do is we’ll alternate it: Lennon and McCartney, McCartney and Lennon.” Well, that didn’t happen. And I didn’t mind. It’s a good logo, like Rogers and Hammerstein. Hammerstein and Rogers doesn’t work. So I thought, “OK”. But what happened was the Anthology came out [in 1996, with Epstein and Lennon now long dead]. And I said, “OK, what they’re now saying is, ‘Song by John Lennon and Paul McCartney.’” I said, if you’re doing that, it’s not Lennon and McCartney, it’s not the logo any more. So, in particular cases like 'Yesterday', which John actually had nothing to do with, none of the other Beatles had anything to do with – I wrote it on my own, sang it on my own, they’re not on the record, nobody is even involved with it, and they didn’t mind that and I didn’t mind, nobody minded, but that’s very much mine – so I said, “Could we have ‘By Paul McCartney and John Lennon’, wouldn’t that be a good idea? And then on ‘Strawberry Fields’ we’ll have, ‘By John Lennon and Paul McCartney’. ‘Nowhere Man’, ‘John Lennon and Paul McCartney’. ‘Penny Lane’, ‘Paul McCartney and John Lennon’. Seeing as we’re breaking it up, can we do that?” And at first Yoko said yeah. And then she rang back a few days later and she had this guy Sam Havadtoy who she was living with – she was co-Havadtoying – and she said she’d decided it wasn’t a good idea and no, no, no, no. And it became a bit of an issue for me. Particularly on that particular song, because the original artwork had 'Yesterday' by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and a photo of John above it. And I went, “Argh! Come on, lads!” Anyway they wouldn’t do it."

Subway Steps Away From Jared During Investigation

In case you haven't already heard, the former director of Jared Fogle's charitable foundation, Russel Taylor, was arrested back in April for possession and production of child pornography. Yesterday, the FBI raided Jared Fogle's home as part of the investigation. Subway released the following statement, as reprinted by TMZ:

"We are shocked about the news and believe it is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee. We are very concerned and will be monitoring the situation closely."

While the investigation is underway, Subway is severing all ties to Jared. As of right now, Jared is not named in the police investigation files. 

Subway really cleaned up Jared's backstory. The real reason behind Jared's original weight loss was that while he was attending Indiana University, the then 425-pound Jared ran a very successful porn rental business out of his dorm room, reports Minyanville. The business was so successful, that Jared didn't like to leave his dorm room for long periods of time. Lucky for Jared, Subway opened up a restaurant on the ground floor of his building. As an added bonus, Jared took a liking to one of the female sandwich artists. He then vowed to eat nothing but Subway because 1) It was so close it allowed him to run his porn rental business, and 2) He was able to subtly stalk one of the workers. And it paid off! A year later, he was down 245 pounds. I wonder why that's not on any of the posters at Subway?

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Weird Triangle

There are three very good actors who are involved in a weird love triangle that is part publicity stunt and part real.

Our actor is older and already famous. Our first actress is younger and is starting to get a lot of attention and score some choice roles. In fact, she just landed another big role recently.

A very big producer wants to turn our young actress into the next It Girl. He put our actor and actress together as a faux couple, because he thinks that her image will get a boost from people believing that a famous leading man is in love with her. The producer began pushing them into PDA photo ops and introducing them as a real-life couple late last year.

There are a couple of problems, though.

First of all, our actress is NOT happy about being in this fake relationship! The actor is too old for her, and their personalities don’t mesh well together when they are off-screen. She appreciates the publicity, but she really doesn’t want to be tied to him professionally or personally. She wants to date someone younger and hotter. However, she knows how powerful and influential the producer is, so she is playing along for now.

The second problem is that our actor is actually in love… with another actress! The second actress is also famous, is well-established, and is much more age-appropriate. They have been seeing each other on the sly but are finding it increasingly difficult to stay out of the spotlight as a couple. Recently, our first/younger actress balked at signing on for another job with our actor. Guess who will be taking her place in that project? That’s right! The second/older actress!

The producer is annoyed that his faux couple is falling apart. Will he be able to convince them to stay together? Or will he let them break up and announce that the actor is now in love with his new leading lady, the second/older actress? What will happen to It Girl? Stay tuned!

Kardashian Korner 7/7/15

Dustin Hoffman States Film Is In Worst State Ever

Dustin Hoffman recently sat down for an interview with the Independent, where he talked about the current state of the movie business. The publication quotes him as follows:

"I think right now television is the best that it’s ever been and I think that it’s the worst that film has ever been – in the 50 years that I’ve been doing it, it’s the worst. It’s hard to believe you can do good work for the little amount of money these days. We did The Graduate and that film still sustains, it had a wonderful script that they spent three years on, and an exceptional director with an exceptional cast and crew, but it was a small movie, four walls and actors, that is all, and yet it was 100 days of shooting. 


The truth is that you come full circle. I was a freak accident, so I got a lead that happened to be The Graduate and it was like a light switch went on and I was an instant star. For most actors you start by playing euphemistically called supporting roles, it’s not even the supporting role it’s less than that, and if you are lucky you build up to supporting roles and then to starring roles – and then you reach a certain age, and unfortunately women usually reach it earlier, and you are no longer the leading man, therefore you become the supporting actor, which many times is the mentor of the lead. That is full circle."
