Taylor Swift & Lisa Kudrow - "Smelly Cat" from "Friends" Clip at Staples Center

Another Feud At E! News?

Page Six reports that after feuding with Giuliana Rancic, Maria Menounos is now involved in a new rivalry with Catt Sadler. An insider is quoted as follows:

"There was a big meeting to discuss how to use Catt more. They want to give her better stories and better interviews. They’re nervous about Maria, especially since ratings continue to decline. They’ve inherited her contract and regret it big-time."

Of course, E! denies the reports: "Completely inaccurate and absurd. We are thrilled with Maria’s performance. There is no ‘battle’ between Catt and Maria.”


Justin Bieber Reflects On His Past

In anticipation of his upcoming album, Justin Bieber sat down for an interview with radio hot Elvis Duran to talk about his past. Us Weekly quotes Bieber as follows:

"I just want to be around people who I feel are supporting me, uplifting me, and making sure I'm the best version of myself because there are so many people in this industry who just want to keep seeing me fall. It has to be on you. You have to make the conscious effort, because for me, so many times it was good people coming in my life and tugging at me, but I wasn't ready. They're like, 'Justin, come on.' But I wasn't ready to take that leap and be like, 'Okay, this is what I want to change, this is who I am, and this is not who I am.' It takes moments of clarity to be like, 'Oh, that's why I'm not like this. That's why I shouldn't do this.' 

I mean, maybe I'm a bad influence, but for me I was like, no, I'm going to do this until I feel like I shouldn't be doing this. Maybe I was wrong, but that's how I learn, and I feel like I'm much better for it. Would I do anything different? I would probably stay away from Miami. Trusting people is hard, especially for me. I've trusted people who I probably shouldn't have trusted before and they've hurt my heart. I'm a pretty sensitive guy, so I'll lay it all on the line, and they'll kind of pull it. So now I'm figuring out there's certain people I can't do that with.

Here's what I'll tell the people: Don't let someone who ruined your trust ruin that next person's chance to gain that trust. I think I let that affect me and change the way I looked at people for a while. There's so many beautiful and amazing people who will encourage you, who will love you, who will not judge you. But I didn't see that because I completely put myself over here. I still have moments where I'm like, 'Yeah people suck.' And then I'll have those moments of like, 'No, people are awesome, and this is why I do what I do in the first place.'"


What Happens When Lindsay Lohan Attends Your Wedding?

Lindsay Lohan recently attended the Florence wedding of Justin Etzin, consul general and ambassador of tourism for the Seychelles. Page Six has a report on her antics at the ceremony. I'll state up front that Etzin's rep said all of these allegations are false, but they are too funny not to print! Her list of infractions at the four-day wedding weekend is as follows:

-She DJ'ed an event, where she kept playing Brandy's The Boy Is Mine over and over

-At said event, she thought someone took her pic, so she put on her best British accent to yell, "Who took the photo? Don't be an idiot!"

-During the wedding ceremony, she painted her nails and looked at her phone the whole time

-After leaving the wedding reception early, Lohan ran around her villa naked claiming that she was drugged

-And to top it off, she claimed that her jewelry was stolen.

You can't make this shit up! Actually, you can, and let's face it, someone probably did, but that is hysterical!

Blind Gossip Exclusive Blind Item - Gearing Up For Divorce And Custody

This man is half of one of the most famous celebrity couples in the world. He is currently making a very big effort to be photographed on a regular basis with his kids. It’s not that he’s actually spending MORE time with them. It’s that he’s spending more PUBLIC time with them in places where he knows he will be photographed.

Insiders tell us that this is part of his strategy in gearing up for a custody battle. He cares as much about his kids as he does about his posh lifestyle. He wants to be seen as a hands-on Dad who deserves primary or equally shared custody of the kids when they divorce.

Yes, you heard us right! This incredibly famous couple is heading for a divorce! While they appear to be a united team in front of the camera, they spend practically no time together in private. We don’t know exactly when they will announce their split… but it is coming!

Antonio Banderas Going To Fashion School

In what seems like an out-of-the-blue career move, actor Antonio Banderas is attending fashion school. Page Six reports that Banderas is currently studying at Central Saint Martins in London, the same school that trained both Stella McCartney and the late Alexander McQueen. Banderas is taking a specially-crafted short course in fashion that is due to wrap up before the full-time students come back to school in October.


MAC Cosmetics Now Tests On Animals

MAC cosmetics have prided themselves on being cruelty-free for years, and the company counts Pamela Anderson as one of their spokespeople. However, Page Six reports that the cosmetics company has started testing their products on animals in China, a country which requires all imported cosmetics to be tested on animals. Anderson fired off the following letter to MAC, which she reprinted on her Instagram:


The Pamela Anderson Foundation August 27, 2015 John Demsey Group President The Estée Lauder Companies Inc. Dear John, I hope you're well. We've known each other for a long time, and I've always admired you for embracing M.A.C. Cosmetics as a pioneer in cruelty-free makeup. That's why I was so proud to be a Viva Glam M.A.C. girl in 2004. But the buzz is much different now, and you know I can't bite my tongue. I'm writing today out of great disappointment that M·A·C has abandoned its celebrated policy against animal testing. When I worked with M.A.C., I found it to be a very progressive and forward-thinking company. That's why I was very disturbed to learn from PETA that M.A.C., under your direction at Estée Lauder, is selling products in China, where the company funds painful tests on animals in order to meet the country's archaic regulations. This has tainted the brand and alienated many of the company's longtime allies. But I have faith in you. Won't you join brands like Urban Decay, Dermalogica, Nature's Gate, Pangea Organics, and Juice Beauty, which have pulled out of China until the country updates its testing policies, as Europe has, to eliminate animal testing? Hundreds of thousands of rabbits, mice, rats, guinea pigs, and other animals are killed in cruel tests for cosmetics in China every year. These tests aren't required in the U.S. and are illegal in the European Union, India, and Israel. Animals are confined to small barren cages and suffer immensely as they have substances dripped into their eyes, rubbed onto their raw shaved skin, or forced down their throats. The tests are conducted without any painkillers, and the animals are killed after the tests are over. As an honorary director of PETA and a former M.A.C. spokesperson, I urge you to pull out of the Chinese market until the country's testing methods are modernized like those of much of the rest of the world. Corporate leaders can make this happen. Won't you restore M.A.C. to its former glory as a brand with principles? I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Pamela Anderson #love #nostigma #vivaglam #crueltyfree

Daniel Craig Hates Being Kinneared

Daniel Craig recently sat down for an interview with DuJour magazine, where he talked about his hatred of Kinnearing.* The magazine quotes him as follows:

"Bars are hard [for me to go to], but that’s more because of mobile phones. I’ll do autographs all day long, and I’ll even do a picture at the end of an evening. But if I’m being photographed all night long in a bar, that pisses me off. If you ask, I may say yes, but come up to me and say, ‘Would you like to take a photograph with me?’ If you’re fucking sneaking photographs of me…it’s human nature, you’re sneaking something! I’m being fucked with! But people don’t see it as a problem. Maybe I’m delusional. [In 2006] there were phones back then, but nobody used the cameras. Or there was a rule, if someone did it, you’d be like, ‘What the fuck are you doing?!’ My wife is the best in the world at all that, she’ll just turn to them and go, ‘No, thank you very much,’ and they’re like, ‘Okay.’”

*In case you're unfamiliar with the term Kinnearing, here's Greg on the Graham Norton Show explaining what it is:


Celebrity Real Estate - The OC Edition

Fans of the TV show The OC are in luck - the Cohen family home has hit the market for $6.25. The home, which is really in Mailbu, was build in 2002, and features six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and plenty of bragging rights. See pictures of the property at Page Six.

Ashley Madison Should Change Their Name To Catfish

I know you're getting Ashley Madison fatigue, but this news was too funny to pass up. Us Weekly reports that the most illuminating thing that was revealed by the leaked data is that the majority of the female accounts on the site were fake! The site was already unbalanced, with 31 million accounts belonging to men and only 5 million to women. But the amount of women is actually way under that number. When looking into whether or not users had ever checked messages on the site, Gozmodo's editor-in-chief Annalee Newitz found that over 20 million men had, while only 1,492 women did. Newitz gave the following summation of the data:

"What I discovered was that the world of Ashley Madison was a far more dystopian place than anyone had realized. This isn’t a debauched wonderland of men cheating on their wives. It isn’t even a sadscape of 31 million men competing to attract those 5.5 million women in the database. Instead, it’s like a science fictional future where every woman on Earth is dead, and some Dilbert-like engineer has replaced them with badly-designed robots... When you look at the evidence, it’s hard to deny that the overwhelming majority of men using Ashley Madison weren’t having affairs. They were paying for a fantasy. 

Overall, the picture is grim indeed. Out of 5.5 million female accounts, roughly zero percent had ever shown any kind of activity at all, after the day they were created. Ashley Madison employees did a pretty decent job making their millions of women’s accounts look alive. They left the data in these inactive accounts visible to men, showing nicknames, pictures, sexy comments. But when it came to data that was only visible on to company admins, they got sloppy.... Either way, we’re left with data that suggests Ashley Madison is a site where tens of millions of men write mail, chat, and spend money for women who aren’t there."

Brandi Glanville Doubles Down on Joanna Krupa Lawsuit

Remember when Joanna Krupa threatened to sue Brandi Glanville over her statements that Krupa is less than fresh? Most normal people would just apologize, take it back, and be done with it. But not Brandi Glanville. TMZ reports that Glanville has doubled down on her claims, and her lawyer has fired off a series of questions for Krupa to answer, including "Is it your contention in this lawsuit that your vagina and/or vulva are odorless? If yes, please explain with specificity why your vagina and/or vulva are odorless." Gee, I can't figure out why Bravo wouldn't want to invite Brandi back for another season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. You stay classy, Brandi! Somewhere out there, LeAnn is cackling over this.


Nicholas Brendon's Dr. Phil Appearance Went As Well As You Thought It Would

Nicholas Brendon's Dr. Phil appearance was taped on Wednesday. The actor took to his Facebook to write the following, as reprinted by Us Weekly:

"First and foremost, I want to acknowledge all the good Dr. Phil has done for people, famous or not. His production has spent millions on helping people turn their lives around. I was on the Dr. Phil Show today and walked off. I'm sure you're wondering why. My illnesses and addictions are a daily struggle for me, and I am committed to working on them for the rest of my life. A big part of that is focusing on positivity.

I'm the first to admit I've messed up, a lot, and I've hurt people I care about and who care about me. When I was in that seat, I felt that Dr. Phil went for the jugular, talking about some of my recent mistakes, with no build up. I felt that he wanted me to lay the darkest parts of myself on national TV right from the start, and I'm not willing to do that. Buffy never chased ratings, and neither should I. Rest assured I am in private treatment and we are going deep so I can live a long and happy life.

There are a few things I want to set straight, but per contractual obligations to Dr. Phil, I cannot at this time. Things about my recent conduct, and more importantly, my family, that I will address when I am able. I may be down, but I'm still a professional. For those of you who are disappointed by the events of the past week or the past year, I'm sorry. For those of you who have shared your own struggles with addiction and depression, thank you. It lifts my spirits to know we are not alone. Keep 'em coming. I'm sure I'll have ups and downs to come, but I'm hopeful for a bright future."


As for Dr. Phil, the show released the following statement to Us Weekly:

"Nicholas Brendon appeared on Dr. Phil today. Unfortunately, he chose to disengage before a dialogue with Dr. Phil ever began. There was no drama, he simply chose to leave and did so in a respectful manner. His family and associates remained and participated fully and productively. Dr. Phil has nothing but the highest respect for Nicholas and wishes him the best in his quest for physical/mental health and sobriety, and stands ready to assist him in any way possible. The episode was completed as scheduled. An airdate will be announced in the future."

Lucy Liu Is A Mom

In surprise baby news, actress Lucy Liu is a mom! If you don't remember seeing any pregnancy photos of her, it's because her new son was welcomed via surrogate. Liu's rep released the following statement to Us Weekly: "I can confirm that Lucy Liu is the proud mother of Rockwell Lloyd Liu, brought into the world via gestational carrier. Mom and baby are healthy and happy."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Older and Wiser and Younger and Eager

Now that this celebrity couple has split up again, you are going to read all sorts of spin by both PR teams about the demise of their relationship. Want to know what really happened? Of course you do!

Basically, Mr. Older and Wiser kept telling Miss Younger and Eager that in order to be a committed couple, she needed to make more of an effort! She needed to arrange her work schedule and home around his work schedule and geographic preferences and family needs and ex-wife’s needs.

Thinking that he would keep up his end of the bargain, our actress did so.

Her reward for that? Finding out that he couldn’t keep it in his pants and was screwing another celebrity!

They had a big fight and broke up again. She’s hurting a bit. He’s screwing a lot.

Don’t expect this A-list supermodel or her husband to make any political endorsements now or next year.

People reports that M&Ms have just released a new fun Fall flavor: Pumpkin Spice Latte. This is taking things up a notch from last year's Pumpkin Spice flavor. This year, they added that special Latte flair. This may be in response to Starbucks upping the stakes; they recently announced that this year's Pumpkin Spice Latte will contain actual pumpkin.

Justin Theroux Talks Leftovers And Marriage

Justin Theroux recently sat down for an interview with People, where he talked about working on his HBO series The Leftovers (premiering October 4th). The magazine quotes him as follows:

"It's like a family. You have to keep it light. When the work has to be done, the work has to be done, but if you don't keep it a little light at times, everyone's going to be miserable. It's not a space you want to live in when a camera isn't rolling...It's a tough character. Every time you get a new script, it's like, 'Oh boy, it's going to go here.' The walls to his struggles are high, but I enjoy it." 

And on married life:
"It does feel different. I'm very happy. It's nice to be able to look down and see a new piece of jewelry on my finger." 

Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer Are Writing a Movie Together

The New York Times reports that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are writing a movie together. Lawrence told the Times in a recent interview, "We play sisters. We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now. Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavors. It’s been the most fun experience of my life. We start the day off on the phone, laughing. And then we send each other pages. And we crack up. I’m flying out tomorrow to see her in Chicago. We’ll write a little bit with her sister, Kim, who worked with Amy when she was writing ‘Trainwreck.’”

Move Over LuAnn, There's A New Countess In Town

Remember when AJ Langer played Rayanne Graff on My So-Called Life in the 90's? After the show ended, she met her husband Charles Courtenay in Las Vegas in 2002. The pair married in 2005 after a slight pushback from his family; after all, he was a British Lord and heir to the Earldom of Devon. Us Weekly reports that after his father's recent passing, Charles has officially become the Earl of Devon, making AJ (who now goes by Allison Courtenay) the Countess of Devon. The couple reside in Powderham Castle in Exeter, built in the 14th century on 3,500 acres next to the English Channel, along with their two children Lady Joscelyn, 8, and Lord Jack, 6.

Christopher Meloni Talks Odd Jobs

Actor Chris Meloni recently sat down for an interview with Cindy Adams, where he talked about his jobs before landing the role of Elliot Stabler on Law & Order: SVU. Page Six quotes him as follows:

"I scraped together. To make a buck, I did anything. Worst was bouncer. You’re a policeman without the pay. Bartending’s best. I loved that. You’re making people happy, and there’s three feet between them and you. Gym training was OK. Being a waiter, no. You can’t get away. The people are on top of you...My first screen test was for a soap opera. A seduction scene. Fresh out of acting lessons, I was all method-y. I went sleazy. Grabbing the actress, I French-kissed her. Staring daggers at me, she said, ‘You mother fucker!’ ”

On what he would still like to try:
“Now, right after this, I’m off to water-ski. But, down the line, I want to take a one-year trip flying around the world. With me as pilot. I took a little training and got kind of a license. They gave it to me on the back of a matchbox or something.”

Sean Hayes Is God On The West Coast

Earlier this year, Jim Parsons played the role of God onstage in the Broadway run of "An Act of God," written by David Javerbaum. Now the play is headed to Los Angeles, and the role of God will be played by Sean Hayes, reports Page Six. Performances at the Ahmanson Theatre begin January 30th. David Javerbaum is the former head writer and executive producer at The Daily Show, and he is the man behind Twitter's @TheTweetofGod.

Less Lucious Lyon on Empire

Page Six reports that due to Terrence Howard's ongoing personal drama, his role in the second season of Empire is being scaled back. If you're one of the few people who have not started watching Empire yet, but plan to in the future, then stop reading this post immediately because there are season one spoilers ahead. Seriously, stop reading and leave. Still here? Well, you got fair warning. A source states about the storyline that send Lucious to prison at the end of Season 1:

"What they are doing is two-fold. They have him locked up so you won't be seeing him in as many scenes. But they are bringing in so many, and I mean so many, guest stars and cameos that the average viewer won't realize it because there is so much going on."

And good news for Cookie fans; Howard's absence will bring her storyline to the forefront:

"She's going to start dropping off from the flashback scenes and then they're going to have her guns blazing."

Josh Duggar Goes To Rehab

TMZ reports that Josh Duggar has checked into rehab. Rehab for what? No one knows. The family says it is a "long-term treatment center." Treatment for what, exactly? Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar released the following statement: "His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others. He has also brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear." Hmmm, no clues there. Sounds like they sent him to another friend's house and are calling it rehab. As for how Josh's wife Anna is dealing with all of this, a source tells People, "She doesn't get mad. You are not allowed to get mad. It's not godly for a woman." So, there's that.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Tightly Controlled Angel

This singer is promoting his newest song. However, his handlers are not allowing any live interviews at all. Interviews must be taped so that they can tightly control what he says. If he doesn’t like a question or doesn’t know exactly how to answer it, he looks at them and then the interview is paused so his handlers can reject the question or feed him the “right” answer.

Why are they doing this? Well, they are still pushing that “I’m a good person now” image that they think will transition him from child star to adult star. However, it’s still totally fake, so he still needs to be coached and tightly monitored so he doesn’t slip and go off-message.


Why would he go off-message if they have thoroughly coached him? Well, our singer has been known for doing stupid things while under the influence in the past. Things haven’t changed much. They can’t control what he drinks/smokes/pops/whatever, and they can’t control when he does it, so now they can only attempt to control what happens afterward.

Billboard announces that Kanye West will be the proud recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at this Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards. This, despite the fact that he's 0 for 3 on Video of the Year awards.

Alanis Morissette Opens Up About Eating Disorder

Singer Alanis Morissette recently sat down for an interview with Women's Health magazine, where she opened up about her struggles with eating  disorders. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"The big question for me around eating-disorder recovery is, ‘What is sobriety with food?’ We know with alcohol, you just don’t drink it and don’t go to a bar. With heroin, you just don’t go near it. Whereas with food, you have to eat, so how can one go from, in my case, bingeing and purging, starving, overeating, the scale going up and down — how can I go from that to a 'sober' approach

I’ve been so disassociated for most of my life, and it’s shown up in various forms like eating disorders and not having boundaries around having sex as a young person, and just not being aware of boundaries and having a lot of mine be violated and not considered. For me, the idea of building boundaries has become a huge part of my spiritual practice. With the mindfulness somatic practices, it’s really helped me stay in my body

I was raised on macaroni and cheese. But I’ve noticed allergies that have gone away when I step away from dairy. I’ve noticed when I get the high-nutrient greens, I sleep better. There’s less moodiness. Food is entirely medicine to me. That doesn’t mean I’m just eating seeds and raspberries, although that’s fun, too, but it’s an integrative approach."

Hollywood Street King Blind Item - Mystical Magic Man

He’s a middle-aged child star, who’s no doubt endured a journey marked by dizzying highs and tragic lows; but could his alleged use of black magic really be what led our blind item to face more than his fair share of tumultuous times? I don’t know. But according to inside sources, dude apparently attempted to delay his daughter’s death by turning to a voodoo doctor “to wake her from her coma.” His alleged call to “a medicine man” is said to be the secret reason behind the family brawl at an Atlanta area hospital. Just ask Alicia Etheredge.

Over the course of just the past three-years he’s seen the tragic deaths of two of his leading ladies; marked the beginning of another marriage and welcomed the birth of another child. According to ancient writings, the name given to his newborn minion is taken from the tree “where Buddha conquered Mara (Satan).”

Check it:

“THERE SHOULD BE LITTLE DOUBT THAT ______ HAD SOLD HIS SOUL TO THE DEVIL FOR FAME AND FORTUNE EARLY ON IN HIS MUSICAL ENTERTAINMENT CAREER.”

Now, can you guess which Mystical Magic man I’m talking about?

Lindsay Lohan Writing Educational Book

Page Six reports that Lindsay Lohan is writing a book:

"Lindsay has had numerous offers to do a tell-all book about her time in rehab, her brushes with the law, her crazy family, or to lift the lid on the less glamorous side of a Hollywood starlet. But she refused those offers, and she’s working on something related to style and fashion and her travels, an educational book.”

Selena Gomez Talks Justin Bieber

Selena Gomez recently sat down for an interview with the Sunday Times, where she talked about her relationship with Justin Bieber. The publication quotes her as follows:

"It's difficult for people to separate us. The Internet wants to freeze this moment in time and constantly repeat it. I didn't think I was doing anything bad by falling in love. There's such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it's good press. Also throw in the fact that you are a teenager — it makes it more difficult."

On wearing a purity ring:
"I'm not embarrassed to say that. I'm also not embarrassed to say that the ring has come off. I got it when I was 13 and I respect so much what it represented, but it isn't for everyone."

On Taylor Swift:
"I can count on one hand the people I could call and who would be there for me. Taylor is one of the greatest people. When I split up with my first boyfriend [Nick Jonas] and I was really sad about it, she flew into town with homemade cookies and a bunch of junk food. To this day, if I called her, she would do the same thing, despite being one of the busiest people in the world."

Snooki Sticks Up For Husband Amid Ashley Madison Claims

After reports circulated that husband Jionni LaValle had been linked to the Ashley Madison hack, Snooki took to her Instagram to state the following, as reprinted by People:

"This morning when I got a call from my publicist that a story was going to be printed on my husband 'allegedly' signing up on Ashley Madison, I laughed- and said lets not even comment and give the story any juice, because it couldn't be any further from the truth. But now seeing how it's the 'news of the day' and everyone is wondering what I think about it- here it is. Jionni is the the most humble, respectful, and most loyal souls I know. I mean hello, that's why I married him. He's a stand up guy who loves his family more than anything in this world. The fact that the tabloids can deliberately make stories up and print things like 'Jionni LaValle ALLEGEDLY and MAY HAVE signed up on Ashley Madison' is absurd. I can see if there is proof in the story to make it legitimate, but to accuse my husband of something he had no idea about... HOW IS THAT LEGAL? I really didn't even want to acknowledge this absurd story, but when my family is being bashed for no reason- mama bear is gonna say what's up. So no, my husband didn't sign up on that website to cheat on me. Honestly, if he wanted to cheat- he would go out and do it. Not sign up on a website and pay for it. Jionni is a good guy and doesn't need his name being tarnished. Nor does our family. We did nothing wrong to deserve this. So with all of this said, I love you babe. And even though I'm a pain in your ass, I know you would never cheat on me. Especially on a lame ass website. @jlavalle5 #myfamilyrocks"

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Trashing The Former Host

The behind-the-camera folks at this cable show have LOTS to say about this former host with the famous last name… and none of it is nice!

She’s got a lot of nerve bashing [Current Host] over her weight! [Current Host] might be too thin, but the only reason [Past Host] isn’t a whale anymore is because she had that stomach surgery.

Another one said:

This must be her weird way of asking for her job back because god knows NO ONE ELSE WANTS TO HIRE HER. Like who on earth would want to hire someone who is known to stab their co-workers in the back?

A third colleague added:

I would rather work with [Current Host] any time. At least [Current Host] has a college degree and worked her way up in this business. [Former Host] only got where she is because of her parents. Dumb, spoiled, no-talent cunt. Good riddance to bad rubbish!!!

Yikes.

Daily Mail Blind Item - The Ashley Madison Hack

A Hollywood actor, an NFL star and a top politician are among dozens of celebrities frantically calling up pricey damage limitation experts over the Ashley Madison hack. Well-known figures in the entertainment, sport and political industries are apparently phoning up experts to help them manage their reputations out of fear they will be publicly outed as cheats.

Among these stars are an actor from a recent action film, a top NFL player, a TV drama actor and a TV reality star – all of whom are male, say the sources, who have insider knowledge on the matter.
A top politician in the South, a Coca Cola executive and a former West Coast politician are also reportedly seeking out help after the cheating site – which has some 37 million users – was hacked. They have to quickly remove all ties to Ashley Madison and protect their online reputation.

‘We’ve never taken more calls or email inquiries in such a short time. Lives are getting destroyed worldwide, and people are scared and don’t want to be next.’ He added that in just 24 hours, dozens of ‘major players’ called up the firm, which charges clients from between $10,000 and $100,000 per month to ‘repair and protect their online reputations’.

One of these celebrities was apparently so distraught about the possibility that his marriage would be destroyed if he was outed as a cheat that he cried down the phone line for five minutes.

And another said he would be fearful for his life if his relatives found out about his actions. ‘One of our clients is concerned about getting killed by his family members if he is found out,’ Mr Schiffer told Daily Mail Online. ‘It’s crazy. We’ve never had so many celebrities call us in such a short space of time. It makes sense when you think about how many people are on [Ashley Madison].’

David Spade Talks About That Time Jack Nicholson Stole His Girlfriend

Actor David Spade recently sat down for an interview with Details, where he opened up about that time he was dating Lara Flynn Boyle, and Jack Nicholson swooped in. The magazine quotes him as follows, as reprinted by Page Six:

"Nicholson asked Lara Flynn Boyle out in front of me, while we were all smoking a doob somewhere. She got mad because I didn’t stick up for her. I said, ‘I’ve been in this town long enough to know when I’m outranked. You’re either gonna go out with him or you’re not.’ She goes, ‘No way. He’s worse than Trump!’”

Not long after that, Lara Flynn Boyle and Jack Nicholson were involved in a car crash:
"[Lara] crawled out of the sunroof and yelled, ‘I have a boyfriend! I can’t be here!’ [The National Enquirer called.] That’s how I found out. She and I didn’t talk too much after that.”


Owen Wilson's Father Has Alzheimer's

Owen Wilson recently sat down for an interview with the Dallas Morning News, where he opened up about his father's Alzheimer's diagnosis. The publication quotes him as follows:

"It is a rough thing. It’s one of those things where if somebody had said 10 years ago, when my dad and I were joking around, having a putting match, that this is the position your dad’s going to be in, where he basically needs 24-hour care, you’d think, ‘Gosh, I won’t be able to handle that. That’s just not possible.’ But it does happen. Such things just happen in life. You just have to do your best to deal with it. You’ve got no choice but to accept it. And then, you sort of still look for the things to be grateful for. He is at home, taken care of, and he has people around that love him. For me and my brothers, there just wasn’t a bigger influence on us. Maybe it sounds trite or something, but I really believe that his spirit gets carried on through me, the way I like to joke around.”

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Married Producing Team

This married producing team are A-list and fairly new to producing movies / tv. Although I may not agree with the religious agenda of a lot their work, I do have to praise one thing about them. New producing teams with a lot of money and not a lot of experience usually may 1. bad investments, where they lose money. 2. invest in a bunch of projects that never get made. Our couple are considered highly professional and highly determined. Nearly every project they’ve wanted to make, they’ve made, efficiently and professionally. This couple has a better track record than some of the seasoned veterans of producing and they’re earning millions as a result.

Who is our couple?
