Jessica Alba's Honest Company Being Sued

Jessica Alba's Honest Company is being sued by a consumer in California; Attorney Nicholas Carlsin is trying to turn this into a class action suit. What is he suing for? The lawsuit alleges that the Honest Company falsely states that its products are "natural," reports CNN. Ha! The jokes on him! He is apparently one of the many people that don't realize that the word "natural" has exactly zero meaning in America. You can slap "natural" on a bag of Doritos; nothing's stopping you. The FDA has never formally defined "natural," and there is no governing body that oversees what is and what isn't "natural" (hard to do when they can't even define it!). There's an article about it in the New York Daily News if you want to read more about it.

And for those of you who care what is in the products that you buy, visit the Environmental Working Group.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Fist of Fury

This champion athlete is furious that some very incriminating photos of him are being offered for sale and may be published.

Some of the photos show him snorting c*caine. Others show him being fisted by another person. The photos are so graphic that even the biggest news outlets would not purchase them for fear of being sued.

By the way, when you figure out who it is, you will find the f*sting part ironic.

A Tribute To Wes Craven

When the world loses a talent as big as Wes Craven, appropriate respect has to be paid. The Hollywood Reporter gathered a group of people who have worked with Craven to pen essays about him.

Steven Spielberg Has Good News For People Who Hate Superhero Movies

Steven Spielberg recently spoke to The Associated Press, making an update to remarks he made two years ago about the movie industry's predicted implosion due to an over-reliance on summer blockbusters. The publication quotes him as follows:


"I still feel that way. We were around when the Western died and there will be a time when the superhero movie goes the way of the Western. It doesn't mean there won't be another occasion where the Western comes back and the superhero movie somedays returns. Right now the superhero movie is alive and thriving. I'm only saying that these cycles have a finite time in popular culture. There will come a day when they mythological stories are supplanted by some other genre that possibly some young filmmaker is just thinking about discovering for all of us."

Cindy Crawford Speaks Out About That Doctored Photo

Cindy Crawford recently sat down for an interview with Elle Canada, where she talked about that doctored photo (which claimed to be an un-retouched image of the Supermodel) that was circulating the net recently. The magazine quotes her as follows:

“I know my body, and I know it’s not perfect, but maybe I have a false body image; maybe I think I look better than I do. I think that most women are hard on themselves. We think we look worse than we do. So I assumed I fell into that category, even though that picture didn’t reflect what I saw when I looked in the mirror — even in the worst dressing room lighting. It put me in a tough spot: I couldn’t come out against it because I’m rejecting all these people who feel good about it, but I also didn’t embrace it because it wasn’t real. And even if it were real, I wouldn’t have wanted it out there. Sometimes, the images that women see in magazine make them feel inferior — even though the intention is never to make anyone feel less. So somehow seeing a picture of me was like seeing a chink in the armor. Whether it was real or not isn’t relevant.”

Celebrity Real Estate - Liza Minnelli

Hollywood Street King Blind Item - Back With A Vengeance

Just when our blind item appeared to find refuge in the safety zone, her baby daddy rapper is back with a vengeance to remind her that no band is free!

“He told her that he was going to expose her by releasing her text messages where she confess to him that she used to pull 20K tricks in Dubai.” ~Hollywood Insider

While she plays the field from Seattle, she’s also said to be threatening her baby daddy over child support payments.

The drop:


“He left her because she was sniffin’ too much coke. Onetime ____ locked her out from their room when they were staying at the Continental Hotel. He didn’t want her to get into the room because all she was trying to do was to get her cocaine out of her purse. He told her ‘I’m going to call the paparazzi on you’ and she took off. If she tries to take him to court to pay a high child support check?
He’s going to expose her.”

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Line Counter

Given the histories of these two drama queens, we were a little surprised that we hadn’t heard anything about either of them from the set of their new TV show. Until now.

It turns out that one of the actresses was sure that the other actress was getting more lines than her in a particular episode. So she had a crew member sit there with the script and actually count the number of lines each actress was receiving!

The crew member later told others on set:

I sat there and started counting, but as soon as [First Actress] walked away, I stopped. The whole thing was so stupid! But I knew that if I didn’t confirm her theory that she would just go on about it. So when she came back I told her that [Second Actress] did get more LINES, but that [First Actress] actually had more total WORDS, so her part was actually bigger. I even made up some numbers to go along with it, and that seemed to satisfy her.

Clever crew member!

Anthony Bourdain Gives His Opinion On Things

Anthony Bourdain recently sat down for an interview with People in order to promote his new graphic novel Get Jiro: Blood and Sushi. But we'll skip to the fun part of the interview, where Anthony Bourdain give his opinion on things. The magazine quotes him as follows:

On cooking with his 8-year-old daughter:
"Anything where there’s knife work and she can touch meat, she’s really into it. She takes the piss out of me a lot. I’ll say, ‘Honey, will you clean up that stuff on the floor?’ and she responds, ‘Why don’t you ask your fans!’ She is in no way impressed by my presence on TV. She thinks Alton Brown and Andrew Zimmern are much more entertaining.”

On Alton Brown:
“A major father-daughter activity around our house is watching Cutthroat Kitchen. I don’t want to get on his bad side. [Alton Brown]’s a god to my daughter. [For her birthday], a friend and I competed against each other, and the kids were given little grade cards to ruin our lives as we tried to cook dishes under a time limit.”

On Guy Fieri:
“I tell jokes about Guy Fieri. The day you can’t tell jokes about Guy Fieri, comedy as we know it is dead. I tell jokes about those guys; it’s what I do.”

On Pumpkin Spice:
I think pumpkin spice is disgusting. I certainly don’t want it in my coffee. I like pumpkin just fine. I like pumpkin pie. Pumpkin tortellini. I make a decent pumpkin soup. But I can’t think of the last time I woke up in the middle of the night and thought, ‘You know what? I could really go for some pumpkin.”

On Pumpkin Peeps:
“I’m really happy for whoever sits around eating pumpkin spice marshmallow, but does it make the marshmallow better? That’s often a useful question with food.”

Hollywood Street King Blind Item - Mississippi MC

He might’ve been doin’ a celebratory Money Dance yesterday, but this Mississippi MC Blind Item is obviously overcome by fear of foreclosure, today. Don’t believe me.. Just ask The-Dream!

Our blind item is far from being a stranger to pulling full-fledged identity-takeovers. Don’t ask his Diddy, ask Fiddy! And even though he’s a rapper rollin’ on a front factor that carried him all the way to the top, breakin’ banks … insiders suspect that it was only a matter of time before the universe presented him with his new found set of financial woes. That’s because they say it’s just a chip off the ol’ Holyfield.

It’s a situation that’s reportedly caused a trickle down effect spilling all the way to our lyin’ azz lyricist’s IG THOT. Know how? Sources say now pulling tricks in Maybach’s across Hollywood, rather than pushing Maybachs across the ATL.

“L___ is out here in Hollywood tricking her ass off. She’s working for the same escort agency that A___ R___ is working for.” ~Insider

Dig the Drop:


“His wing spots ain’t making paper like he thought they would. That’s why he’s rushing to put out another album. His recent charges and legal fees got him up against the ropes. I guess that’s why his girlfriend L____ G___ is out here in Hollywood pulling tricks with A____ R___.”

Ellen Page Talks About The Role That Inspired Her To Come Out

Ellen Page's new movie, Freeheld, is the true story of New Jersey State Police Lieutenant Laurel Hester and her 2006 battle to have pension benefits passed along to partner Stacie Andree upon learning she had terminal cancer. Page portrays the role of Andree in the film, and she recently spoke to Out magazine about how that role inspired her to come out. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"For me, lots of stuff surfaced [playing Stacie]. Recreating a sort of closeted relationship in a film caused some stuff to surface, for sure. And then there’s [the matter] of speaking up or potentially owning an identity that I think does require a responsibility of trying to help move things forward.”

On finally deciding to come out:
"I remember thinking, ‘Ellen, how in God’s name could you make this film and not be out?’ What’s interesting to me is how long it took to make the movie — for it to finally come together — and how my internal progression toward coming out was naturally in line with it. Stacie and Laurel’s story is incredibly inspiring and did take a lot of courage, particularly in a time of such unimaginable difficulty. It really did make me go, ‘Dude, just tell people you’re gay. Just get over yourself, honestly, and support those who are not as privileged.’ It’s like, ‘You have f—–g privilege, so do something with it.’’

Janice Dickinson Almost Dies On Air on Celebrity Big Brother

Janice Dickinson is currently appearing across the pond on Celebrity Big Brother UK. If you're unfamiliar with the format, the show broadcasts live from the house on occasion. During Tuesday's live broadcast, TMZ reports that Dickinson was stung by a bee live on air. The extremely allergic Dickinson did not have an EpiPen handy, and passed out. Dickinson was immediately rushed to the hospital, where she was treated, and returned to the house. Sources tell TMZ that Dickinson almost died as a result of the sting. Celebrity Big Brother has a limited list of items that celebs are allowed to bring into the house; apparently Dickinson's EpiPen wasn't on it. I sure hope it is now!

King and Queen of Canada Divorcing

Avril Lavigne, 30, and husband, Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, 40, have announced that they are splitting. Keeping it classy, Lavigne turned to Instagram to announce the split. People quotes her post as follows: "It is with heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today. Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we've created many unforgettable moments. We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other. To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for your support."

What's behind the split? Hard to say. Perhaps in her road to recovery, Avril began to find Chad Kroeger's voice as nauseating as I do, and had to boot him for the good of her health. Who knows? Now the real dilemma...should there be an Avril Lavigne song or a Nickelback song to accompany this post? It's Sophie's choice really. Here's one of each; pick your poison!








If your stomach is feeling particularly strong, here's one of the two of them making beautiful music with each other:

Outtie Announcement On Spam

Hello Anarchists!
Every commenting system has its assets and its drawbacks. Disqus was chosen because it's plusses far outweigh its minuses. However, one of those minuses is the obnoxious amount of spam. In order to counteract the spam, there is a short list of "restricted words" that will cause a comment to automatically get held up in moderation instead of instantly posting to the site. For every spam attack that makes it live to the site (for the short time before it gets banished), three more are prevented by getting caught in the "restricted words" trap.

The list gets updated after each spam attack with words added to maximize spam blockage and minimize real comments getting held up for a few minutes in moderation. If you've ever had a comment get stuck in moderation (and I know that many of you have), it's not you, it's me. And unfortunately it's a necessary evil to keep the spam attacks at bay. So if your comment gets sent to moderation for a few, don't worry! It will appear on the site as soon as I get in there to approve it. Comments aren't suddenly getting censored; it's just a preventative measure to keep the site spam-free.

XOXO,
Outtie

P.S. I'm not going to list which words are restricted, and if you figure it out, keep it a secret! No point in telling the spammers which words will prevent their spam from appearing in the comments; that would defeat the purpose!

P.P.S. If a word is causing too many legitimate comments to get moderated, it will be removed from the restricted list. This is a fluid work in progress. And no, I don't make any money from the site, hence the lack of ads. I only get paid in snarky comments ;)

Blind Gossip Exclusive Blind Item - Sperm Secret

Did you notice that this VERY famous actor was out of sight for a few days? Well, there’s a reason for that. He was in the hospital for a secret procedure… to have his sperm extracted!

Typically, this procedure is done on men who have had a vasectomy. Rather than reversing the vasectomy, the sperm is retrieved using Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA), Percutaneous Sperm Aspiration (PESA), or Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE). Yes, it’s painful.

The doctors generally recommend against using the extracted sperm for artificial insemination, as the quantity of the sperm retrieved is very low. Instead, the sperm are usually used in IVF (In Vitro Fertilization).

Even with IVF, there has to be a perfect storm of biology and science to have a viable pregnancy, and this couple has several challenges. Both of them are on the older side. Our actor is over 40, and the volume, motility, and structure of sperm all decline with age. His wife also has her challenges, as women’s fertility drops steeply after the age of 35, and underweight women have a more difficult time getting pregnant.

Even if his sperm is viable, her eggs are viable, and she is healthy, there is still less than a 50% chance per cycle that she will get pregnant.

So, in summary, it looks like our actor may have had a vasectomy but now wants descendants. His sperm is going to be married with an egg in a laboratory. And – if all goes well – he and his new wife will have a baby next year!

It will be the first child for both of them.

BG Note: Not all men who undergo sperm extraction have had vasectomies. Some have azoospermia, a medical condition where a man does not have any measurable level of sperm in his semen. Azoospermia affects about 1% of the male population, and is associated with very low levels of fertility or even sterility.

They’ve already cancelled the show, but they’re still going to the air the series as a limited miniseries of some sort. ‘They were going back and forth between cancelling the show before it aired, losing loads of cash and garnering the bad publicity that comes with it, or just airing it in a quiet timeslot and hoping no one notices.’

Dior Sauvage – The new fragrance (Official Director’s cut) Starring Johnny Depp

James Bond Author Disses Idris Elba

Author Anthony Horowitz, who wrote the latest book in the Bond Series, was asked by the Daily Mail what he thought of Idris Elba stepping into the role of James Bond. Here's what he had to say:

"Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better. For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It's not a color issue. I think he is probably a bit too 'street' for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah."

After a huge uproar, Horowitz tweeted the following apology, as reprinted by Us Weekly:

"I'm really sorry my comments about Idris Elba have caused offence. That wasn't my intention. I was asked in my interview if Idris Elba would make a good James bond. In the article I expressed the opinion that to my mind Adrian Lester would be a better choice, but I'm a writer not a casting director, so what do I know? Clumsily, I chose the word 'street' as Elba's gritty portrayal of DCI John Luther was in my mind, but I admit it was a poor choice of word. I am mortified to have caused offence."


Horowitz has been critical of Bond films in the past. On the recent franchise films, he has said:

"Quantum Of Solace just went wrong. Skyfall is my least favorite. I know it is heresy to say so, but it is the one Bond film I have never liked. Daniel Craig is a terrific Bond. Casino Royale is probably my favorite. Of the films after [Sean] Connery, it is easily the best. Fantastic. A total return to the gritty seriousness of it." 


Danielle Staub Is Engaged

Former Real Housewife of New Jersey Danielle Staub is engaged, and it's not to Danny Provenzano! Us Weekly reports that Staub is engaged to Joe Masalta, who is reportedly a Navey SEAL Special Warfare and intelligence expert. She released the following statement to Us Weekly: 

"I am overwhelmed and incredibly grateful for the outpouring of well wishes and support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Joseph has helped me recognize the important things in life. As I embark on this new journey in the spirit of love and forgiveness, I'd like to apologize for mistakes I've made in the past. I feel like a big weight has been lifted off of my shoulders, and I am finally happy."

Former WWF Superstar Jimmy Snuka Arrested For Murder

TMZ reports that former WWF Superstar Jimmy Snuka has been arrested for the 1983 murder of his then-girlfriend Nancy Argentino. At the time of the incident, Snuka told police that Nancy had injured her head while the pair were "fooling around" outside, when he pushed her and she fell and hit her head. When his autobiography was published in 2012, his story had changed dramatically. In the book, he states that Nancy slipped and fell while alone in a rest stop bathroom, and no mention of an altercation. That change in story was dramatic enough to cause police to reopen the case, and they determined that the evidence was strong enough to prove that Snuka had beat Nancy, resulting in her death. Snuka was arrested at his New Jersey home, and has since posted bail.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Unstable and Controlling

This famous young actor and his girlfriend of several years broke up a month ago. There was never an announcement, but the relationship ended shortly after a very public squabble. While she was embarrassed and upset at first, she quickly came to realize that she may have dodged a bullet.

Her family and friends are glad that the couple had such a public beef because others would now see what they have always known. The girlfriend always thought of him as quirky and artistic. However, they thought he was unstable and controlling, and have not been shy about lecturing her over the years about how she might meet with physical harm if she stayed.

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Newlywed Cheater

This indescribable man with THE famous last name is already cheating on his wife. They’ve barely been married a year and my source tells me he even cheated on her on the honeymoon. His wife has her own issues, including an addiction. Some would call all of this karma.


Who is our man?

Kardashian Korner

Los Angelenos are getting plenty fed up with their unofficial first family as of late.

First off, apparently unbeknownst to the Kardashian Krowd, Los Angeles is in a historically unprecedented drought. The governor ordered Californians to cut back their water usage by 25% By working together, Californians were able to cut back by 31%, no thanks to the Kardashians. LAist reports that Kylie Jenner has been fined twice for overwatering her impressively green lawn. Kim and Kanye have a similarly suspiciously green lawn. Kim's publicist, who must be a stealth environmentalist, had this to say of water violations: "They're traffic tickets, who cares? Their water use means nothing in the grand scheme of things - it's a swimming pool full of water." She then went on to say that Kimye used less water than famers do, so what's the big deal? And they wonder why people hate them.

Well, they might not have to wonder much longer. Last week, the Kardashians succeeded in pissing off all of Marina Del Rey when Khloe decided to have a 15 minute-long fireworks display over the marina at midnight for her boyfriend James Harden's birthday. Yeah, that went over with locals about as well as you think it would. TMZ reports that a group of locals have banded together to file a small claims suit against Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner for terrorizing the neighborhood. They're asking for $7,500 each, the max allowed in small claims court. You're probably asking yourselves, "The Kardashians are loaded! Why not sue for more?" That's where these residents are really on their game - by suing in small claims court, the Kardashians aren't allowed to have legal representation and have to appear themselves to answer the claims. These pissed off residents want to make sure that they have the ability to tell the Kardashians face to face just how rude, selfish, and obnoxious they really are. Can't say I blame them!

Hollywood Street King Blind Item - The Former Manager

This Hollywood front artist may think his Empire’s all that but his former manager would explain why the revolution won’t be televised. Just ask Queen Latifah.

“He wasn’t down with dude’s discriminatory methods by dating Asian & White women.”

Therein lies the reported cause of the static said to be keeping these mystery men at odds against each other.

“S____ quit working with T____ because he wasn’t down with T___ dating outside of his race.”

The drop:


“T___ went on to become a big actor after S___  quit managing him. T____ don’t fuck with black chicks and if you want S___ to manage you? You can’t be bringing white girls around because he won’t go for it.”
