Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans Arrested Again

It must be a day that ends with "y," because Jenelle Evans has been arrested again. She's gunning for Lindsay Lohan's crown for most celebrity arrests with no time served. Us Weekly reports that Evans, 23, was arrested for assaulting ex-fiance (and baby daddy) Nathan Griffith's new girlfriend by throwing a glass at her. Evans was charged with assault and battery in the third degree. Hmmm, I wonder if this will put a crimp in her plans to get custody of her son Jace back from her mother?

Glee Actress Expecting Second Child

Megan Fox Has Filed For Divorce From BAG

I know this sounds like a rerun, but it's not. Earlier this week, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green announced that they had separated. Now, TMZ reports that Megan Fox has officially filed for divorce. Fox has hired Laura Wasser to represent her, and is asking for joint physical and legal custody of their children Noah Shannon Green, 3, and Bodhi Ransom Green, 1. The couple did not have a prenup, so everything is community property and will likely be divided 50/50. Don't anticipate a messy fight; this divorce is so civil that the two are still living together.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Relieved That He's A Dirty Dog

In what may come as a bit of a surprise, this celebrity’s wife is actually breathing a sigh of relief now that the public knows that her husband is a low-down, dirty dog!

Even though she also committed adultery in their relationship, he will look petty and retaliatory if he brings up her cheating during divorce proceedings.
Therefore, it looks like she is going to be able to walk away from the marriage with the money, the kids… AND and a clean reputation!

Refinery 29 Blind Item - Asshole Actor

Horror Stories From Real Hollywood Extras:

"I was playing a sort of 'slave girl' in this fantasy television show with three other women. They had us dressed in barely any clothing — it was pretty much a tiny bikini and chains that we were supposed to be tied up in. The lead character in the show was played by this really hot actor. One of the girls was very starstruck or turned on (or both!) by this guy. She didn’t seem aware of how obvious she was about it either — she was just staring at him the entire time. The actor caught on and started talking to her, but little did she know he had decided then and there to mess with her. He starts chatting with her and asks if she would want to be in his character’s courtship, where she would have the chance of being a featured extra. She looked back at us like, 'Haha, bitches!' and went off to be dressed in new wardrobe.

"When she gets back, the actor asks her to dance for him. She obviously doesn’t care or even realize how desperate she looks and starts dancing all sexy. I was surprised she didn’t just give him a lap dance. At this point, it’s super weird and awkward. He goes, 'All right, that looks good. Now go walk out this door so I can watch you.' Again, she obliges and he yells out something I won’t say (a disgusting way of saying he was getting turned on). 

"I was so completely grossed out at this pig, but the girl didn’t seem to care! Or at least if she was offended, she didn’t show it. She was just smiling and telling the rest of us how excited she was to have gotten a better role."

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Talks Aging

People recently sat down for an interview with Julia Louis-Dreyfus where she talked about aging. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"I do feel the pressure. I'm not going to lie to you and say I don't feel the pressure. But I would also say I don't quite feel it the way I used to. There's a part of me that's like … 'Who gives a shit?'"

On getting a facelift:
"I haven't done that, I don't have a plan to do that. I realize as I say that it sound I'm disparaging to those who have, but I don't want to be. My point is that I'm glad to be the age I am and to have had the career I've had and am now having. It's like, 'Yeah, I'm here, I'm still doing this, and my plan is to continue to do it for quite some time.' I'm scared of surgery. I have TMJ, and I just had to have an injection into my jaw to try to make the inflammation go down and just getting that flipped me out." 

On the ageist and sexist culture in show business:
"On multiple occasions I've had to stand my ground. I've had to persevere. There have been numerous occasions in my life and my career where I've had to push really hard, harder because I'm a woman and because my point of view or my instinct wasn't being taken quite seriously enough because I was a woman and that's just a fact."

RITA ORA - Body on Me ft. Chris Brown

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Expensive Behaviour

Let’s talk about this A-list movie star’s behaviour on this never made movie that cost my source several million dollars. It was so deplorable that my source was relieved to eat the 7 figure loss. It started out as a small movie, shot in the homeland of this A-list actor, aiming to be lowly budgeted and hopefully an award contender. It became a disaster that seems to be widely forgotten and wasn’t reported on much at the time.

A C-list actress was attached as the female lead but promptly fired when the A-list actor took the male lead because – my source is saying this is close to verbatim – ‘She’s a shit actress and I don’t act with shit actresses. It makes ME look bad. Can she even do the accent? She can barely act in her normal accent. How can she act in this accent? She’s out. Call ___ instead. Forget it. I’ll call ___ instead. She probably won’t return your calls.”

Our A-list movie star did call the other actress instead, who was matching A-list at the time (and completely wrong for the role, we may add), and she signed on for an unbelievably low salary out of respect for their friendship. The A-list movie star used this as leverage to take even more power over the movie and it got even more out of control. You think our A-list movie star would be happy, but no. Then, he started getting paranoid about billing and critics – thinking the A-list actress would ‘steal HIS movie away from him’ and ‘take top billing.’ He ordered rewrites months before production was set to begin, despite the script being based on a novel, he wanted crucial scenes reworked and re-imagined to suit his sudden change of character, lessening his initial role. 

Our A-list actress discovered the ongoings and begged the creative team and producers to stop him to no avail, initially withdrawing and then returning when the A-list movie star calmed down a little and begged her back. Everyone on set still ignored the then director and came to the A-list movie star with their questions and ideas. It became such a mess that with several million already invested, two of the biggest stars in the world attached and a hot script – the people behind it scrapped the film only a couple of weeks before the production was set to begin, pissing off the A-list actress who had just arrived on location and had already rejected high paying work for the movie. It pretty much ended his friendship with the A-list actress and was the start of the decline in the A-list movie star’s huge career.

Who is our A-list movie star?

Who is our fired C-list actress?

Who is our A-list actress?

Evan Rachel Wood Talks Marilyn Manson

Actress Evan Rachel Wood recently sat down for an interview with Net-A-Porter's The Edit, where she talked about her relationship with Marilyn Manson. The publication quotes her as follows:

"I thought I was in love. I wasn’t doing it to prove a point or be rebellious. I wanted to break a mold for sure — I knew I was edgier, more alternative, and weird. And [Marilyn] was just what I needed, because I felt really free with him. And that freedom was attractive... People were cruel. You build immunity to that sort of thing, but I wasn’t used to negative feedback, so it got to me. Then I got angry, and pushed away even more. I wouldn’t trade any of [our relationship]. I appreciate everything he taught me. I just don’t think we were right for each other."

Refinery 29 Blind Item - A Serious Caffeine Addiction

Horror Stories From Real Hollywood Extras:

"I was on set for a film that starred a television actress who was trying to break into movies. We were filming on location in a small town in an impoverished country. One day, the actress asks for coffee, so the production assistant gets it from the caterer and brings it to her. The actress looks at her like, 'What the fuck is this?' She then asks if she can have coffee from a café instead. Again, we are filming in an area where there is nothing like that! I was thinking, You won’t be able to get an espresso anywhere around here. The P.A. returns from whatever café she found and has coffee, but it’s in one of those red plastic cups. The actress again says, 'What the fuck is this?' and throws it on the ground. She then starts screaming, 'I need someone to go to a café. Is there not a Starbucks around here?' I couldn’t believe what an idiot she was."

Shannen Doherty Battling Breast Cancer and Business Manager

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Shannen Doherty announce in a Los Angeles Court on Wednesday that she has invasive breast cancer that has spread. Her complaint against business management firm Tanner Mainstain reads as follows:

"In November 2013, SAG sent the premium invoice to Tanner Mainstain for Plaintiff's medical insurance coverage for the year 2014. However, Defendants ignored it, failed to pay it (without informing Plaintiff) and then promptly terminated their relationship with [Doherty] effective February 7, 2014."

This inaction caused Doherty to be dropped from her SAG insurance, so she didn't go to the doctor until her insurance was reinstated in 2015, where she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her complaint continues:

"Plaintiff was also informed that, had she been insured and able to visit her doctor, the cancer could potentially have been stopped, thus obviating the need for the future treatment (including mastectomy and chemotherapy) that Plaintiff will likely have to suffer through now."

This is not the first time that Tanner Mainstain has been sued. This is from a lawsuit the firm settled last year over commissions on James Franco's account (who no longer is a client of Tanner Mainstain):

"In truth, the firm and former partner [Steven] Blatt specialize in fleecing actors and entertainment industry professionals. After gaining control of all of their clients' cash and assets, they find a way to lose it, sometimes by gross incompetence, sometimes by self-dealing and outright theft. Along the way, they habitually deceive their clients, going so far as to set up bogus transactions, to conceal their misdeeds, errors and omissions. The firm has hallmarks of a Ponzi scheme."

Here's wishing Shannen all the best, and to kicking cancer's ass like it's Dylan cheating on her with Kelly!

Refinery 29 Blind Item - Right In The Eye

Horror Stories From Real Hollywood Extras:

"I was an extra in a high school movie, and there was a prank scene where the sprinklers went off on a bunch of extras. We were told it would be some sort of color (that was the prank), but when they shot it, the sprinklers sprayed paint. Everyone started freaking out, and I was shoved to the ground by another extra, which caused the sprinklers to shoot right in my face. I was taken to a set nurse and given eye drops, but when I took my contacts out, they were stained the color I was sprayed with."

Lainey Gossip Blind Item - Too "Upper Class" For Talk

For a year now she’s been pitching a panel-style talk show about love and marriage, similar to The View or The Talk, partnering with popular parent and women’s lifestyle websites. Because of her high profile, she wasn’t expected to show up every day but often enough, like a few times a month, so that the audience would know that it was hers – the Barbara Walters of the group, you could say. The other women included a newlywed, a model-actress-mom in her 40s, a single, divorced woman in her 40s, and a woman in her early 60s.

Would you believe, though, that even with her popularity with the MiniVan Majority, no one was interested. The show was rejected, repeatedly, while other similar shows, featuring other personalities, got picked up, like Tyra Banks’s FABLife. The reason? Too “upper class”.


Interestingly enough, this happened before everything blew up. And now that it’s all blown up, and she has everyone’s sympathy, the show still isn’t getting any play…even though she could be an expert at talking about love and marriage right now. But is she willing to go there? It might change if she’s willing to talk about it. Would she talk about it? On camera? Probably not. Not for the sake of the children. But that doesn’t mean it’s not leverage – not only from a business perspective but when dealing with that idiot too.

Stephen Colbert Opens Up About Losing His Father and Two Brothers


Stephen Colbert recently sat down for an interview with GQ magazine, where he opened up about losing his father and two of his brothers in a plane crash. The magazine quotes him as follows:

"You've got to learn to love the bomb. Boy, did I have a bomb when I was 10."

Colbert, the youngest of 11 children, lost his father and two of his brothers Peter, 18, and Paul, 15, to a plane crash in 1974 when he was 10. Peter and Paul were the two siblings closest in age to Colbert; after their deaths he was alone with his mother who relocated them to downtown Charleston, South Carolina.

I'm not angry. I'm not. I'm mystified, I'll tell you that. But I'm not angry. I learned to love it. So that's why. Maybe, I don't know. That might be why you don't see me as someone angry and working out my demons onstage. It's that I love the thing that I most wish had not happened.

On how his mother dealt with grief:
"By her example I am not bitter. By her example. She was not. Broken, yes. Bitter, no. … It was a very healthy reciprocal acceptance of suffering. Which does not mean to be defeated by suffering. Acceptance is not defeat. Acceptance is just awareness. What punishments of God are not gifts?' So it would be ungrateful not to take everything with gratitude. It doesn't mean you want it. I can hold both of those ideas in my head." 

On the acceptance that arrived when he was 35:
"It stopped me dead. I went, 'Oh, I'm grateful. Oh, I feel terrible.' I felt so guilty to be grateful. But I knew it was true. It's not the same thing as wanting it to have happened. But you can't change everything about the world. You certainly can't change things that have already happened."

Refinery 29 Blind Item - Makeup Massacre

Horror Stories From Real Hollywood Extras:

"I was working on a commercial where the newest face of the brand was a very famous, award-winning actress. When she got to set, she ignored everyone around her and immediately began fighting with the producer. She was screaming like crazy and having a tantrum. To make things even more awkward and crazy, she started chucking makeup at the door that the producer was standing near. All these packages of eyeshadow and foundation were getting thrown, breaking, and spilling all over the place. Tons and tons of product were destroyed. It was insane! Whenever I see her in a movie now, my mind goes back to that moment when all that makeup went flying."

Kerry Washington Talks Post-Baby Body

Actress Kerry Washington recently sat down for an interview with Self magazine, where she talked about her post-baby body. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"I try to [exercise before work] so I can be back with my kid early. I have to take care of myself in order to live life the way I want to. It's important to have rest days. But in the long run, if I don't work out for, like, three days, I feel worse, not better. I've been really focused on not being 'back' to anything, but being the best version of myself right now. My body is the site of a miracle now. I don't want to be pre-miracle. 

With Pilates, I get to bring my true self. I cry, I laugh. I get to go: Where is my body today? What do I need today? How can I take care of myself and push myself past my comfort zone? How can I be both loving and challenging?”

Refinery 29 Blind Item - Eternal Dry Humper

Horror Stories From Real Hollywood Extras:

"I was filming a music video, and the scene was supposed to be super sexually charged. But first, they dressed us in these skimpy, provocative, futuristic outfits made out of latex. (Side note: It was a nightmare to have to use the bathroom wearing those things.) Then they asked all of us what gender we are attracted to and paired us up with our 'partner' for the day. We are ordered to basically make out and dry hump them. Even though I was paired up with a hot guy, it ended up being 18 hours (yes, 18 hours!) of fake making out and dry humping. Imagine hours and hours of having to pretend to be having sex while wearing sweaty latex. What’s even worse is having to hear the same 10-second excerpt of the song looping over and over and over the entire time."

This studio is not at ALL happy about their summer film flopping at the box office. Everyone is pointing fingers at each other, but one executive is naming the problem: The stars of the film!

This isn’t some superhero film that’ll draw [an audience] even if it sucks. You can’t just throw a good-looking bunch of people together and expect that your job is done. We needed a star and instead we got mannequins. Yeah, they’ve all been in big films, but there isn’t a charismatic one in the bunch. they don’t have talk show energy or a big fan base or online following, so there was no buzz around them or the film. It was destined to flop. We’ll be lucky to make back production costs. God help us if someone starts talking sequel…

Refinery 29 Blind Item - All Wrapped Up

Horror Stories From Real Hollywood Extras:


"I was an extra on one of the murder-mystery-type cop shows. You know the kind, a string of girls all get murdered, then they find the guy because of a hair they analyze in a lab. While I was working, they asked if I wanted to be featured. I was like, 'Hell, yes!' They had me fill out some form and asked if I would be comfortable holding my breath during takes. I said yes, so they said I'd be playing a dead nurse and I would need to change into something slightly revealing. They asked if I was okay with that, and I said I was. I mean, it was a basic cable show. It's not like I'd be naked on TV!

"I headed to a little trailer. This is where I was handed a nude thong and was asked to change in a little area. I emerged, breasts in hands. Then two people walked up to me with plastic wrap and began to plastic wrap a tube top and miniskirt. I was handed a robe that looked like it was stolen from a hotel and some flip-flops and taken to a pop-up tent with tarp walls, where two other girls, also basically undressed like me, were huddled around a space heater. They took away the robes, and we were covered in fake blood. We weren’t allowed to sit after that, because we’d mess up the makeup, so we stood for about three hours with towels around us while they fixed a lighting problem. 


"When we shot, we got to lie around in a bunch of debris. I was in one of the shots as they were talking, so I had to hold my breath for quite a long time during each take. When the show came out, you couldn't even see me."

I think it's expected that when you get success in one area, you're supposed to evolve and try to do something else—especially in business, and especially if you're a man."

"I was an extra in this really big action scene; it was depicting a huge car accident, and everyone was supposed to be dead except for the lead actor.

We start shooting, and everyone drops to the ground, playing dead like we were told, except for this one guy. He starts acting out his death really slow, in this slapstick-comedy sort of way — hand over the heart, dying in a painful and loud way, except he’s serious! The director yells cut, and everyone is pissed because we have to reshoot this really elaborate action scene again. Then he did it again."

Hollywood Street King Blind Item - Cheapskate

Today’s blind item is either a cheapskate OR he straight up refuses to pay what he weighs! Just ask Christopher Moore, his apparently overworked and underpaid bodyguard, revealed to be a starving security man. We’re told the bodyguard is only keeping his gig working for our blind item “to stay in the game”, and is said to have resorted to alternative, controversial hustle methods to compensate for the monies our mystery ATL MC is NOT paying him! Don’t believe me.. Just ask Courtney Thompson!

“He only pays Chris 500-bucks for 10-hour shifts on as his bodyguard, so Chris has to resorted to cuckold sessions with rich white couples.”

This HSK exclusive drops appears to be consistent with our blind item’s stingy track record. Know why? It wasn’t that long ago when the mother of his firstborn child, now 12, testified that he walks with 25-racks “on him at all times.” That would be the same DNA-certified baby momma that our blind item insisted — despite his drastic monetary increase since 2003 — “shouldn’t receive a penny more” in child support.

“Chris isn’t just prostituting himself to older white women, he’s also breaking into their homes and robbing them too!”

Dig the Drop:

“Chris was homeless so Courtney took him in and when she kicked him out. Chris started fucking Courtney’s ex-husbands wife Lacey. Chris became a professional thief because. _____ don’t pay him shit.”

Well, the other shoe has dropped, and TMZ reports that Jared Fogle will be copping a plea in his child porn case. The charges will be filed at the same time the plea is entered; probably sometime today. A judge gets to decide the sentence.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Good Father

If you think that this actor is genuinely making an effort to be a good father, think again! He is pissing and moaning about spending time together, and is doing the bare minimum to keep from looking like the bad guy. One family friend summed up the situation this way:

He can’t even pretend to enjoy time with the kids. He has to be dragged out for any activity that involves them. Every single request gets a heavy sigh from him. Then eye rolling. Then whining. “Do I HAVE to?” He’s a bigger baby than any of the kids.

If she left it up to him to decide on the activities, the kids would just sit in front of a television all day with him on the phone or the computer. This isn’t a new thing. He’s always been that way. He doesn’t hate the kids. He just hates putting any effort into being a father. [His wife] really hoped he might want to be more involved once he had a son, but it really hasn’t made any difference.

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Quite The Scandal

This A-list TV actress is a regular contender at the awards, but if some of the behind the scenes of her hit show were ever released it would create quite the scandal. She constantly makes ignorant remarks that could easily be seen as racist (or even sexist). My source (who likes her, it seems) says it’s not even an intentional thing. “It’s just something she does to fill the empty air or make conversation.” Often she doesn’t care about who’s nearby either. She insulted the homeland of a camera guy with a stupid generalisation about terrorism that would make the Tea Party blush. Whenever someone calls her out (which is rare), she’ll justify it by saying ‘It’s not [insert accusation] if it’s true.”

Who is our actress?

Helper: Donald Trump isn’t an actress.


Sidefact: I was actually told about the gaffe our actress made in front of the camera guy by a very reliable source several years back. I refused to believe it because it just sounded too incredulous, even for the actress who has a history for that sort of behaviour.

Disney Is Going To Have A Star Wars Theme Park

"I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars. We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever. These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.”

Rupert Friend Shot With Blank While Filming New Movie

At the premiere for his new movie Agent 47, star Rupert Friend talked about an on-set accident that made it into the movie. Page Six quotes him as follows:

"I shot myself in the head. You fire blanks, but the guns eject real brass, hot cartridges. They’re like 400 degrees . . . The cartridge ejected, hit the ground, bounced up and cut my head open. It was fine in the end, which I’m amazed about, because I’ve had head wounds ­before and they bleed like all hell.”

The World's Most Romantic Post




...and the latest from Nikki Reed's recurring column for Elle Magazine: 

 "As many of you know, I spend a lot of time working with animal shelters. Lately, I've been very involved with some amazing facilities here in Georgia, where I'm currently filming. Naturally, in animal rescue, there is an inevitable amount of horror stories that come my way. I've seen abuse come in many forms: malnourished animals; abandonment; dogs tied up for days without water; a pet dropped off after it was part of a family for 10 years because a kid wants a new puppy; people stealing from donors who think they're contributing to a cause. 

Though uncomfortable to see and hear, I am now approaching this unfortunate knowledge with a newfound perspective. What if, instead of criticizing people for the things they're doing wrong, we inspire them to do better? What if we give them the tools, the insight, and the ability to move forward instead of putting them on the defensive? 

This idea came to me after reading an article about The Humane Society's decision to fund a Louisianan shelter that is run by prison inmates. This particular organization has been wildly successful on so many levels, clearly a direct result of the positive approach and careful consideration involved in its unique operation. The Humane Society gave this shelter the tools and the insight it needed to function; the shelter then gave the inmates the tools and the insight they needed to find purpose—to do and be better. This story is beautiful proof of our interconnectedness, and it's tangible proof of our progress."
