Rebecca Gayheart Talks Parenting

People recently caught up with actress Rebecca Gayheart, wife of actor Eric Dane, at a charity event in Los Angeles. The actress is quoted as follows, when talking about trying to raise her children to be charitable:

"Every kid deserves to have back-to-school clothes, backpacks, diapers, car seats [and] cribs. To me, it’s insane that in America there are children going without those very, very basic essentials and it breaks my heart. Anything I can do to help, I will. My mom’s point of view was, ‘You always have more than someone else and you can always help someone else. It didn’t matter how much we had, you could always help someone. I’m doing the same with my daughter. Hoping to role model for her and to give her a sense of, that’s not something special you do, that’s just a part of life. You are a giver. That’s your duty."


On her family's daily routine:
“We wake up, we all make breakfast together. We’ll have impromptu dance parties or we’ll just go throw a blanket on the yard and lay in the yard and read books in the morning. The morning is really nice to start my day off that way. I feel like, ‘Okay, if we start the day off together, connected, relaxed, the rest of the day will fall into place,’ and it usually does.”

Kim Richards Talks Sobriety

Kim Richards recently sat down for an interview with Entertainment Tonight, where she talked about her sobriety. She is quoted as follows, as reprinted by Us Weekly:

"I love sobriety. I've always loved sobriety, and relapsing was very hard for me. It was not easy. I have to say, don't take this wrong, but I really wanted to go to treatment because I needed a break from what I was going through at home. Monty, my ex-husband, is very sick and my son wasn't well. And I had to give away my dog, and I wasn't talking to my sister [Kyle].


Actually, my arrest was my 'Aha, I get to go away now and rest and take a break from all this. I don't want anybody to take this wrong, but I truly needed a break from hospitals, family, the pressure. I needed to go away. I went in and I got to learn a whole lot about myself. I dug deep into my past, things that happened to me as a child, good and bad, teenage years, relationships with all my loved ones, where they need to be mended, where they're very powerful. I worked on me."

Pamela Anderson Releasing a Book

People reports that Pamela Anderson is releasing a book called Raw, due to hit shelves September 1st. The book will be comprised of both photographs and poetry written by Anderson. When speaking about the book, People quotes Anderson as follows:

"Who would've thought being a little bad could lead to a lot of good. This is a scrapbook of behind the scenes -- never seen, along with some of my frantic handwritten journaling and lucid poetry, all while rolling in glitter."


Proceeds from the book sales will go to the Pamela Anderson Foundation, supporting human, animal, and environmental rights.

Wine and Sass Blind Item - Permanent P-Lister (As in Pig)

Ugh.  This guy.  Everyone knows this permanent A Lister is a complete scumbag.  His ex made sure we all saw him for what he really was.  I feel bad for calling him a pig because I'm sure pigs are nice and don't deserve to be associated with this monster.

Has it damaged him professionally?  Yes...well sort of.

Has it damaged him personally?  No. Not really.  Women still line up to be with him.  That's because he's always had a type. Successful in their type of industry, but not coming close to his fame and fortune.

He puts on a huge show of being the absolute best man in the world to them and then he systematically tears them down to a shell of what they once were. 

He's been doing all his business and personal dealings out of the country lately.  He's found that other countries don't care how he treats women and has found huge success over seas.  Money is pouring back in.

With his big business success he went back to his old tricks with his current relationship.  He got wasted a few weeks ago and laid into her with such rage she ran out of their hotel room screaming.


Per his usual M.O., he is throwing money at her to make it all better.  I, for the life of me, can't understand why these women even give him the time of day.  The next major alcohol binge will probably land her in the hospital.

Charlie Hunnam Talks Walking Away From 50 Shades of Grey

Charlie Hunnam recently sat down for an interview with Entertainment Weekly, where he talked about walking away from the role of Christian Grey. The magazine quotes him as follows:

"It was very, very painful for me, that whole process, just very unpleasant. I felt like I let myself down. I let those people down on Fifty Shades that I’d grown to really love and respect. It’s just a really unpleasant period of time for me. For the first time in my life, [I] had more work than I had time to do it. It’s very hard to be disciplined in that situation and understand what is going to be required to all of that work to the best of your ability and have yourself surrounded by people. You see it all the time in Hollywood. There’s a tendency to make hay while the sun shines and to capitalize on every second once somebody gets hot and people just get burnt out. That’s what I started to do. It’s not in my mind very much. I do try not to dwell on the past too much because I have a tendency to do that, and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten very good at distancing myself from 'shoulda, woulda, coulda.'"

Jake Gyllenhaal Talks Love

Jake Gyllenhaal recently sat down for an interview with Howard Stern, where he talked about love. People quotes him as follows:

On how many times he's been in love:
"Three times. Twice...It was me, man. I think I probably just got scared...I love love, man. Are you kidding me?" 

On whether or not he'll ever get married?
"Oh, I hope so. I think it's hard for everybody, man. But I also think at some point, you just decide to grow up, you know? There are a lot of beautiful women, and there are opportunities. But at the same time, if you find the right person ... I believe in monogamy. I believe in when you meet somebody who's right, it will be right, and you'll stay there."

On sister Maggie Gyllenhaal's marriage to Peter Sarsgaard:
"I admire that relationship. They're definitely a standard for me. To me, making a relationship ... where you're like, 'Oh, I'm psyched to be a dad. This is cool. I'm psyched to be in this.' My sister and her husband make it feel that way."

Bossip Blind Item - Which Unlucky In Love R&B Chick Has Fallen For A Rapper With A Bad Rep?

This poor tormented songstress has been through a series of bad relationships since she first landed in the spotlight and it looks like just a matter of time before her latest ill-fated dalliance hits the headlines.  Neighbors tell BOSSIP the soulful singer has had a certain rapper pay her several late night visits in recent weeks.  The two have collaborated in song, but so far they’re shying away from taking the relationship public, even though her neighbors say his car is outside her house at least three times a week and they’ve been spotted locking lips on her door step on occasion.

A source close to both confirmed to BOSSIP that they’re definitely getting it in but keeping it low. “They go on dates in the valley not to be seen.”

Meanwhile she’s been telling pals, “He’s such an amazing friend.”

Wonder if the baby mama who nixed nuptials with our mystery emcee would say the same, considering police had to be called when his fists allegedly collided with her face?

Anyway, maybe things will be different this time. Especially since this pair has so much in common — including numerous run-ins with the law and a shared love of tattoos.

Us Weekly reports that the sure to be legendary nuptials of Sofia Vergara, 43, and Joe Manganiello, 38, are set to take place later this year. Specifically, on November 22nd at Florida's Breakers Resort. If that name sounds familiar, it might be because the Breakers provided the backdrop for the hilarious film Heartbreakers. The property can accommodate up to 800 guests. Looks like things are moving full steam ahead!

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Scheming Switch Hitter

This hot model is more scheming in her love life than you would imagine!

She told some friends recently that she wants to change partners twice a year and switch back and forth between gender preferences in order to maintain a steady stream of interest from entertainment media outlets.

She has also decided that she is only going to date other celebrities from now on. According to her, they are the only people who can truly understand her… and help keep her in the headlines. For her next celebrity, she is looking to “trade up.”

Of course, the public story will be that she is simply “finding herself and looking for true love”!

Lainey Gossip Blind Item - Her Cheating Heart

The easy assumption is that their marriage is over because he cheated. He may have. But I’ve spoken to over a dozen impeccable sources, the best sources, sources I’ve worked with for many, many years. And while none of them can verify whether or not he stepped out, they can all confirm that she did.

They work in a small town. It’s a protective community. The community insulates their own. Even if artists fuck up, the community generally keeps their sh-t contained, honouring a country code. So, even though a lot of people had a lot to say about her for a long time, out of respect for the business and for her husband, the community locked down her secrets. Also, they were afraid. Because, as two sources told me, “She’s crazy as f-ck. She’s the one who doesn’t just threaten to burn down your house, she would totally burn down your house. No one wants to mess with her”.

This is why no one could challenge her when she took a song from another artist, written by the other artist, without any notice, and went on to great acclaim for it. In public they all pretended like it was agreed upon and civil, but that’s not how it went down. She ripped off the piece from an emerging young talent and you saw it on that girl’s face – she was helpless at the time.

This is why no one wanted to expose her when she threw herself at another major superstar just before she got married. She offered herself to him repeatedly. While they were working together she presented herself to him one night only to have him push her out the door. So she’d start calling his wife, telling the wife that she was going to take her man, telling the wife that she wouldn’t be able to do anything about it. And she started texting him, begging him to tell her what she had to do to get him to leave his wife and be with her. She promised him, over text, that if he was with her they would be country royalty. When he refused to hook up with her, he and his label received a cease and desist from her people, telling him that he would have to reset his album because she and her now-husband would no longer allow him to use any of the music they’d written together. This is how and why they all ended up professional rivals. But, again, at the time, because she had a reputation for being so unpredictable, with mercurial mood swings, and because she was so popular (to the public) and powerful, no one wanted to take her down. Until now.

The town is turning against her because her husband just cut her loose. He finally cut her loose because she was caught, very recently, cheating on him with a member of her tour team (he’s not talent but he has a prominent position) – and there’s a family involved. She tried, but there was no way she could deny it. The evidence was irrefutable. It was flagrant. And this is why people are breaking the code. They see this as the ultimate disrespect. The way she went about it, so carelessly, they see it like a willful humiliation of her husband, who is very well liked. This, on top of the fact that people have been waiting for years for her to get what’s coming, is why so many people in that community are ready to sell her out.

NEW SPECTRE TRAILER

Wine and Sass Blind Item - He Who Slings Mud Generally Loses Ground

This is an easy one.  We got some information from a very good source close to these A List Musicians who are now divorced. 

1. She had no idea the divorce was coming.  They haven't spent much time together recently and if you added up the total time they've been together in their entire marriage, it would probably add up to six months. 

He pulled some strings and had his divorce filing moved to the front of the line.  With their pre-nup, it was an extremely easy case.  BUT....

2.  The documents were sealed because he had to fork over quite a bit of cash rather than fight her about the pre-nup.  He cheated years before and was cheating now.  This was a stipulation in their pre-nup.  He cheats, she gets some serious cash.  He put that stipulation in there to begin with, she doesn't need money.

3.  If you speculated that he filed because he has a side piece, you'd be correct.  The side piece was about to blow the lid off everything because she was tired of being a secret.  So he filed for divorce to shut her up and as soon as the ink was dry, he had his PR team write up tons of different stories that all contradict each other and dumped her.  With all the conflicting news stories, there's no blowing the cover off the whole thing.  He's got the media and public not sure what to believe. 

4.  His ex-wife hasn't said one word about any of it.  All the "source" posts you see are all from his team:  she cheated, he cheated, she doesn't want kids, he doesn't want kids, she's psycho..... whatever they could come up with.
And let me tell you that the ex is spitting mad at how he's handled everything.  She considers the entire marriage a lie based on how he did all this behind her back while pretending everything was fine.  Giving interviews about how amazing she and their marriage is while using contacts to get a quicky divorce. 

But she's not one to play her feelings out in the media, she will slow burn and then give her side of the story in her music and everyone will rush to buy what she's selling to hear her side.  Her next album will probably be epic.

Madonna Talks Longevity (And Picasso)

Madonna recently spoke about longevity in the entertainment business. Page Six quotes her as follows:

"I like to compare myself to other kinds of artists like Picasso. He kept painting and painting until the day he died. Why? Because I guess he felt inspired to do so. Life inspired him, so he had to keep expressing himself, and that’s how I feel. I don’t think there’s a time, a date, an expiration date for being creative. I think you go until you don’t have any more to say."

On her new tour:
“The theme I really truly explore in this show more than anything is love and romance. I want people to walk out like they’re feeling inspired and like they’ve seen something they’ve never seen before (and) felt something they’ve never felt before. I realize I have 32 years of other songs, so I have to pick and choose. I sit there for weeks and weeks and weeks trying to figure out which of my old catalog I want to do. It’s a puzzle that we have to put together ’cause thematically the songs — the old and the new — they have to go together; sonically they have to go together.”

On opening act, comedian Amy Schumer:
“She’s a role model for women, and I am too, and I think it’s a good match. I love her and … I just thought, ‘That’s interesting.’ (I’ll) try something new and different rather than the usual run-of-the-mill — have a band, have a DJ. It’s definitely a new thing. I hope it works — fingers crossed.”

The Muppets - First Look Presentation

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Destroy Miranda

We told you yesterday that it was that Blake Shelton’s smack at Miranda Lambert’s fidelity was a PR attempt to make Lambert look like the bad guy in their marriage.

Given that their divorce was already settled, it was a nasty thing to do. The only reason to publicly smear someone AFTER a divorce is finalized is because you want to destroy their reputation.

To that end, Shelton and his PR team released an entire TEAM of people to serve as multiple “sources” and “close friends” and “insiders” to every entertainment magazine and website. Their goal: Destroy Miranda!

It may have worked with a lot of outlets (who will swear that Shelton is the innocent one and Lambert is the guilty one), but we weren’t the least bit fooled by his propaganda.

We told you that Blake was a cheater and that we would not be surprised if Lambert smacked back rather quickly with accusations of her own.

One day later, and she’s fired back!

While Shelton accused Lambert of cheating on him with two men – one a relatively unknown country singer – Lambert is now accusing Shelton of cheating on her with a famous country singer! From TMZ:

Miranda Lambert:

I Didn’t Cheat On Blake. He Cheated on Me!

Miranda Lambert has kept her boots where they’ve always been … under her bed, and says she was never unfaithful during her 4 year marriage to Blake Shelton … but he was.

It’s a classic case of he said/she said … but sources close to Lambert say Shelton’s the one who strayed … with a famous country singer no less.

The sources claim Blake’s camp was unscrupulous, and threw mud with the help of a powerful PR firm that attacked Miranda before the ink was dry on the divorce docs.

We’re told she’s incensed Blake accused her of cheating with a country singer. She says it never happened, and so does the singer.

While Shelton may have thought he was clever for firing the first shot, Lambert definitely trumped him with a bigger accusation. In the gossip world, “A FAMOUS country singer” is a more salacious accusation than “A country singer” (who turned out to be Chris Young, BTW).

Yesterday: Advantage Shelton.

Today: Advantage Lambert.

So, who do you think is our Famous Country Singer?

Colin Quinn Talks Public Urination

Colin Quinn recently had a funny talk with The Hollywood Reporter about the public urination problem in New York City. An excerpt is below:

"What are my thoughts on public urination? My question is, what is it about New York that just makes people want to pee outside instead of using a nice restroom?

I got a ticket for public urination once — when I was 19, on the train, probably the F train. They sent it to some other Colin Quinn, in another part of Brooklyn. And years later, I ran into his brothers, and they go, 'So you're the Colin Quinn that our brother got a ticket for peeing on the train!' They sent it to his house, so I never paid it.

People had different attitudes toward urination in those days because all the bars had these troughs, with eight guys all lined up next to each other and peeing. There were no cubicles, so obviously, there was a more public attitude toward urination in general. But all your life, you just saw people peeing in the street. In the past 15 years, it's only been at the end of a parade, you'll see some public urination. St. Patrick's Day was always the only day you were allowed to publicly urinate; I think it's legal for one day a year. But there's not enough bathrooms to hold all the beer bladders, so now it's becoming a thing. 

I saw someone take it a step further the other day, too. We're talking about public defecation. I've seen a couple of those in my life, but this one was a shocker because, well, it's been a few years."

Opposites Attract Remake w/ Paula Abdul

BRAPPP Blind Item - Closet Conservatives

As we gear-up for the 2016 election in the United States of America, we see celebrities come out of their quiet closets and endorse political candidates. More than often it’s a Democrat that is financially and publicly backed. Of course, that’s because every celebrity in Hollywood is an unabashed liberal that adores Obama and supports gay right etc. It has nothing to do with the emails that are sent around by agents and publicists reminding their talent not to endorse any controversial candidates that may harm their careers. *whispers* That means Republicans. Shhh! *whispers*

It’s fairly open knowledge that there will be repercussions if you endorse a Republican. The late Bruce Paltrow is on record refusing to hire an actor because he admitted to voting for Reagan, and that was when most of Hollywood did support Reagan.

I have a list of talent that are secret Republicans. Do not expect any admissions. Do expect public endorsements of the nominated Democrat.

Our first is an A-list singer. She pretends to be a liberal feminist for the sake of career and she’d see red if this was revealed, because you just know she’s very career conscious and would hated to be exposed as the big time fraud she is.

Our next is an A-list actress. She argues with her significant other about politics all of the time. If truth be told, the fact that she leans towards the right is new to us. Like members of her family, she appears to have gotten conservative as she gets older.

Our penultimate is an A-list actor. Another late born conservative. He was self-described far-left, but a period of transition changed that to Republican.

Our final actor is A-list and an Academy Award winner, although he may be more known for his blockbusters. He’s the only non-American we’ve listed and this would send shockwaves through certain industries because his family is very liberal and very outspoken about it.


Who are our closeted conservatives?

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Judd Apatow Exposes Comic Creep

In his new book, Sick in the Head: Conversations About Life and Comedy, Judd Apatow talks about his early exposure to comedy clubs and his obsession with talking to stand-up comedians and learning the secrets of their success.

Apatow worked at his high school’s radio station to facilitate his interaction with those comedians.

In the tenth grade, I started to work at my high school’s radio station, WKWZ 88.5 FM, in Syosset!

How did I get people to talk to me? Well, I would call their agents or PR people and say I was Judd Apatow from WKWZ radio on Long Island and I was interested in interviewing their client. I would neglect to mention that I was fifteen years old.

Since most of those representatives were based in Los Angeles, they didn’t realize that the signal to our station barely made it out of the parking lot. Then I would show up for the interview and they would realize they had been had. But they never turned me away, and every single one was gracious and generous with their time. (Except for one, who asked to see my dick. I won’t mention his name but I said no. I didn’t even realize this was probably just stage one of his plan. He told me he’d made “a bet with another comic” that he could get me to show it to him. I now realize the bet was probably a little more complicated than that.)

UPDATE!

Judd Apatow was 15 in 1982. Some of the comics that he talks about idolizing and/or interviewing at that time include Paul Provenza, Jay Leno, George Carlin, Jerry Seinfeld, Paul Reiser, Robert Klein, Eddie Murphy, Jackie Martling, Rob Bartlett, Weird Al Yankovic, John Candy, Henny Youngman, Howard Stern, Steve Allen, Harry Anderson, Al Franken, and Rodney Dangerfield. The comic in this story may or may not be one of them.

This A-list actor really needs to get straight. I’ve heard he cost his previous movie so much money with delays because of his problems that they seriously threatened to take it out of his back-end. He and his wife are constantly breaking-up and getting back together again over his substance abuse, but – like him – she’s a child in mindset, thinking its all game that they’re playing when they’re actually costing a studio millions of dollars and damaging his already dwindling career.

Our C-list actress wife has her own problems, mostly she is borderline deluded. She believes that she should have a career near his level and the only reason she doesn’t is audience envy over her looks.

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid Did A Reddit AMA

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid did a Reddit Ask Me Anything on Tuesday to promote Sharknado 3. Here are some of the highlights:

On the favorite way they've killed a shark:
Reid - "Mine would be on top of the Empire State Building when I whip out my saw hand."

Ziering - "My favorite slaying was the no-look behind the back shark filet on top of a firetruck on broadway in the center of Manhattan."

On whether or not someone will be lost if they haven't seen the first two Sharknados:
Reid - "I think you could watch all the sharknadoes and figure it out. It's nice to watch all of them but you realize real quick there's sharks flying in the sky in tornadoes, and we gotta find a way to save the world."

On whether or not Sharknado will have the enduring impact of Star Wars and Godfather:
Ziering - "You know the movie has obtained such recognition that it's hard to see it going away. James Bond has over 20 movies made, Mission Impossible shows no sign of slowing down. Sharnado has the same sort of popularity, but certainly not the budget. I think these will go on long after I'm done playing Fin. I actually gave birth to my replacement in this movie. We have a baby."

On funny stories from the set:
Reid - "Yeah, there are a whole bunch of em. The first funny moment was in this movie, compaerd to the other films, there's a lot of things that you have to say -- marketing wise -- it was difficult to say some of the things. One of them was about a certain phone, you had to make it natural, but it was so hard to do a commercial inside of the film you know, you're cringing saying it, but we managed to do it."

Emma Thompson Talks Sexism In Hollywood

Emma Thompson recently sat down for an interview with Radio Times magazine, where she talked about sexism in Hollywood. The publication quotes her as follows:

"I think it's still completely shit, actually. When I look at it now, it is in a worse state that I have known it, particularly for women, and I find that very disturbing and sad. Some forms of sexism and unpleasantness to women have become more entrenched and indeed more prevalent. So I get behind as many young female performers as I can, and actually a lot of the conversations I have with them are about exactly the fact that we are facing and writing about the same things and nothing has changed."

Blake Shelton's PR Team Is Winning In Divorce Coverage

Those of us who read gossip blogs know that rumours of Blake Shelton's cheating have run rampant for years. Funny, none of that is being brought up in the press coverage of their divorce.
