Jill Zarin Involved In Car Crash

Page Six reports that former Real Housewife of New York Jill Zarin, 51, was involved in a car crash on the FDR which knocked her unconscious. Zarin and her publicist were in a car service vehicle on their way to promote her new Sci Fi film Night of the Wild (from the creators of Sharknado). Zarin was taken to New York Presbyterian Hospital, where she was treated and released. A source states, "I don’t think she’ll make it to the premiere, but she’ll be OK. These are not life-threatening injuries, which is a blessing."


David Cassidy Involved In Hit And Run

David Cassidy, 65, has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident in Florida, reports Page Six. Cassidy reportedly sideswiped a truck, then tried to obscure his license plate as he drove away on a flat tire. Things haven't been going well for Cassidy this year; he also filed for bankruptcy in February.

Greasy Bear Crashes Car

Some days on Anarchy seem to have a theme. I guess you can call this Car Crash Saturday. Remember when oil heir Brandon Davis, aka Greasy Bear, used to be semi famous for dating Mischa Barton and Paris Hilton, and calling Lindsay Lohan firecrotch? Well, in the early hours of Friday morning, Davis decided to drive after pounding back drinks with Hilary Duff's ex-husband Mike Comrie, and wrecked his Mercedes by smashing it into something very solid. TMZ reports that Davis was transported to the hospital by an ambulance; once there he was arrested for DUI. Well, at least you know he can afford bail!

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Ugly Triangle

This film from earlier this century didn’t get good reviews, but it does have a memorable name… and it did produce some good drama behind the scenes!

It starred a couple of women you definitely know. The first is an Actress who went on to star in a TV drama for a few years. The second is best known as a Singer who has a lot of drama in her personal life.

While they were filming that movie together, Singer was dating an Actor who did a whole bunch of films and TV series in the 1990s-2000s. She was madly in love with him and they dated for several years.

While they were filming, Actor hung out on set…  and began cheating on Singer with her costar, Actress!

At first, Singer thought it was great that her costar and her boyfriend got along so well, but she eventually figured out what was really happening. When she did, she went ballistic on both Actor and Actress and broke up with Actor.

The year after the film came out, Actor and Actress came out publicly as a couple. But now you know that their relationship originated as a little love triangle on the set. And now you also know why Singer and Actress – who were so friendly when they worked together – don’t speak anymore.

The Fight Over Sam Simon's Estate

Tyson Kilmer, the man who is now caring for the late Sam Simon's dog, a behaviourally-challenged Cane Corso named Columbo, recently spoke to the Hollywood Reporter about the lack of support that he has received from the estate since Simon's passing. Simon had verbally agreed to take care of the dog's lifetime expenses. Those expenses made headlines on other sites, because they clock in at $140,000. Sound ludicrous? Yes. Is that the amount that Simon himself was spending to care for the dog while he was alive? Yes. Yet the executor of Simon's estate refuses to pay any money for the dog's exceedingly expensive care. Simon's friend Merrill Markoe stated, "Sam would be humiliated and enraged. At the very least, Sam would have expected Columbo's care to be the same as it was when he was alive. He was thrilled when Tyson said he would take Columbo — thrilled and relieved. He would never have agreed to cut off funds for his own fucking dog!"

Lest you think all this brouhaha is being made over just Simon's dog, the problem is much larger than that. Before he died, Simon stated on Marc Maron's podcast that he was donating nearly all of his Simpson's royalties to charity, royalties which bring in tens of millions annually. Simon made additional verbal promises to each individual charity that he supported. But the various charities that Simon generously supported during his lifetime have yet to see a single dollar from the estate. Capt. Paul Watson, of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, had this to say: "In my opinion, there is something quite irregular with this development. A failure to follow through with Sam's promises and stated commitments will only serve to tarnish the unblemished reputation of this remarkable man who is no longer in a position to defend those promises." Mark Thompson, a close friend of Simon's, is quoted as follows: "The notion that the organizations that Sam dedicated so much of his life and fortune to should in any way be cut off is sickening. Sam had clearly intended that they continue to be fully funded to do critical work. The whole thing is bizarre. Throw Columbo in the mix, and it takes an even more twisted turn. If this is all true, then Sam's estate is being administered by people who have no consideration for who he was and what he wanted his continuing legacy to be."

Buffy Actor Nicholas Brendon Arrested Again

Nicholas Brendon, 44, was arrested for the fourth time this year on Wednesday, reports People. This time, in Sarasota Springs, New York, and sadly it wasn't just trashing a hotel room; this time it was for domestic violence. Apparently Brendon's girlfriend was dropping off some personal belongings and planned on leaving right away. Brendon, in an attempt to get her to stay, took her car keys, smashed her cell phone, and then choked her. Yeah, that usually doesn't entice people to Netflix and chill. Brendon was charged with two counts of criminal mischief, one count of obstruction of breathing, and robbery, which is a felony. Get it together, man!

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Brave Humble Pioneer Not

This actress has had this vision of herself for the last few years. She wanted to stop acting and become a lifestyle guru and business mogul. She envisioned herself as a combination of Martha Stewart, Kathy Ireland, and Jessica Alba. To that end, she practically stopped acting and threw herself into the business of starting a business.

It was rather ill-conceived from the beginning, but [Actress] doesn’t have the education or business savvy to recognize that. She hired experts but wouldn’t let us do our jobs or take our advice. Then she started blaming us when her strategy failed.

She thought that if she acted more authoritarian and pushed and threatened everyone harder, it would help, but you can’t treat professionals like indentured servants. The harder she pushed, and the more she blamed and threatened, the more everyone resented her. The whole thing was hemorrhaging money, and people were quitting.

There is really no on to blame except herself. She’s never failed at anything, so I have to say that I think she was genuinely shocked. I’m sure she’ll try to portray herself as some sort of brave humble pioneering entrepreneur. Not. The people who worked with her know the truth: She was just a mean rich girl who didn’t know how to manage sh*t. Thank god that’s over…

Her fallback position? Back to acting. Lots of projects lined up. Those millions should take some of the sting out of one failed venture.

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Rife With Controversy

This A-list – maybe B-list – actor was advised by all of his agents to drop out of an upcoming film that is going to be rife with controversy, but he adamantly refused. He wants to work with the director and he really likes the script.

It’ll either be an unmitigated disaster or it’ll win every Oscar it can.

Who is our actor?

Why is it controversial?

Kate Winslet Talks Marriage(s)

Kate Winslet recently sat down for an interview with WSJ magazine, where she talked about her past marriages, as well as her current husband, Ned Rocknroll. The magazine quotes her as follows:

“Thank God for Ned — really. He’s just so incredibly supportive, and he’s so much fun. He’s absolutely everything to me. And to all of us. I know lots of people who are not in the public eye who have gone through several marriages, I really do. And it’s just those are the cards that life dealt me. I didn’t plan on its being that way. And fuck me, it hasn’t been easy, you know...No one really knows what has happened in my life. No one really knows why my first marriage didn’t last; no one knows why my second didn’t. And I’m proud of those silences."


Mischa Barton Is Going To Have To Take The Bus

TMZ reports that (former?) actress Mischa Barton has stopped paying the bills on her leased Audi. Barton leased the car back in March, and has only made one of the monthly payments since then. The leasing company demanded that the actress return the car, she declined. So now Barton is being sued for the full amount of the lease, $40,000. Good luck collecting on that!


Hollywood Street King Blind Item - Everyone Is On The Down Low

Dallas was the city where this R&B singing blind item was caught french-kissing another man backstage, just a few years back. It’s a groupie situation that may have set the stage for why our blind item’s current BF doesn’t love the ties he keeps with his fans.

“His boyfriend was mad at him & they were fighting because his boyfriend thought he was getting too close to his groupies.”

According to industry insiders, the identity of our blind item’s boyfriend is revealed in his “Put That Woman First” music video — timecode 2:57, to be specific. That’s where you’ll see dude’s bromancer, “holding an umbrella walking with a woman in the rain.”

The drop:


“My husband and I saw him giving his boyfriend a rose and they hugged and kissed afterwards. I was shocked!”

Blake Lively's Preserve Website Closes Up Shop

Blake Lively has decided to pull the plug on her Preserve website after just over a year. Lively explained her decision to Vogue, who quotes her as follows:

"We have an incredible team of people who do beautiful work, but we launched the site before it was ready, and it never caught up to its original mission: It’s not making a difference in people’s lives, whether superficially or in a meaningful way. And that’s the whole reason I started this company, not just to fluff myself, like ‘I’m a celebrity! People will care what I have to say!’ It was never meant to be that, and that kind of became the crutch because it was already up and running.

It’s very exciting and it’s also incredibly scary. I never thought I would have the bravery to actually do that, to take the site dark and to say, ‘You know what? I haven’t created something that is as true and impactful as I know it can and will be. And I’m not going to continue to chase my tail and continue to put a product out that we, as a team, are not proud of.' I know what it’ll look like, what I’m facing publicly, that people are just going to have a heyday with this. But it’s so much worse to continue to put something out there — to ask my team to put something out there — that isn’t the best we can do. I’m going to take this hit, and the only way I can prove all the negative reactions wrong is to come back with a plan that will rock people. I’ve asked my assistant to just play ‘Shake It Off’ on a loop — it feels really good to listen to it on a loop!"


Celebrity Real Estate - Middlesex Edition

Middlesex author Jeffrey Eugenides has listed his Princeton, New Jersey home for sale for $2.495 million.

Amanda Seyfried Is Back On The Market

Timm Gunn Hates Anna Wintour

I missed the memo that Timm Gunn and Anna Wintour had a feud, and I am sorely disappointed that I am just learning about it! If you need a catch up like I did, Gunn helpfully opened up to Meredith Vierra about his non-relationship with Anna Wintour. Us Weekly reprints his remarks as follows:

"I will say when people misbehave around me I call them out for their bad behavior...I was asked by the New York Post... 'What is the most unforgettable moment you’ve ever seen in fashion?’ [I had a] very matter of fact response and it was, 'Watching Anna Wintour being carried down five flights of stairs from a fashion show.' Her office called my office the next day and demanded a retraction and I said, 'But its true, it happened.' I mean I didn’t make this up and they still demanded a retraction and I said no....Her Director of Communications said, ‘I’ll have you know Ms. Wintour knows how to work a Manolo.' I said it wasn’t a matter of not being able to go down the stairs to descend, it was a matter of speed. She had two bodyguards, who made a firemen’s lock, she sat in it. They wooshed her down these stairs and put her right into her car to get to another fashion show because this fashion show as in the fifth floor of the Metropolitan Pavilion. They had to move her fast...She’s a history revisionist, in her mind it never happened basically." 

On the current state of his relationship with Anna Wintour:
"It’s hostile. May I say this, though: There is so much that happens at that unique publication that is so of another world and another planet. I’m happy to have a bad relationship with it, because I wouldn’t want to have a good one."

On another run-in with Anna Wintour:
"I was [once] on an airplane with Anna Wintour and the flight attendant came up to me and said, ‘Is that Anna Wintour?’ And I said, ‘Yes. It is. She asked, ‘Do you think I can say hello to her?’ I said, ‘Well of course. Who wouldn’t want you to greet them? That would be lovely.' She went over and this man next to Anna Wintour, she was seated at the window and he was at the aisle, rose as she rose her own hand up as a gesture of, this is now an international incident and the man said to her, ‘You have to go away, Miss.' So she wouldn’t even allow her to lean and say, ‘Ms. Wintour it’s so lovely to have you on the plane.’ I don’t understand it...May I also add [that] I have huge respect and regard for Ms. Wintour’s charitable work. It’s wonderful and my hat’s off to her but I just wish that she navigated the world with a little more respect for other people."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Where Is Everybody?

This actress from an iconic television show recently did an appearance at a retail store. The event was publicized in advance… but very few people showed up.

While she was gracious and upbeat with fans, behind the scenes was a totally different matter.

She was pissed that the event was such a failure. She kept asking her (Assistant? Publicist?), “Where is everybody?” She blamed everyone around her, saying that they embarrassed her, that they obviously didn’t promote her right, etc. She looked like she was ready to cry.

Maybe the event was a bust because she just isn’t as big a deal as she was in the 1990s?

Helena Bonham Carter Talks Tim Burton Split

Helena Bonham Carter recently sat down for an interview with Red magazine, where she talked about her split from Tim Burton. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"I could write a thesis on what's happened and it is all-absorbing when a relationship breaks down, but I think we're coming through it, and I think we'll have something very precious still. Our relationship was always somewhat special, and I think it'll always remain special. We did find each other. And really, the mark of a successful relationship shouldn't be whether you're there forever after. Sometimes you're not meant to be forever together. Sometimes you have to come to terms with the fact that that was it. But that was a gift, a massive gift. We gave each other children and a lot more else."

That’s the very reason why — after two kids, and nearly two-decades — our blind item’s wife cites ‘irreconcilable differences’ between them!

“She filed for divorce because she grew tired of sharing him with other men.”

The drop:


“She can’t take his deceiving ways anymore. It hurts when you find out you’re man is cheating on you. But when you find out he’s cheating with a man … A woman could go crazy, pick up her phone & call her lawyer to file for a divorce.”

Helen Mirren Talks Onscreen Nudity

Actress Helen Mirren, 70,  recently sat down for an interview with Alan Cumming, where she talked about her past on-screen nudity. Us Weekly reprints her remarks as follows:

“I didn’t know my boobs were legendary. There are much more legendary boobs than mine. I never wanted to do that. But you know, I thought, ‘Does it really matter?’ It’s not a thing to get your knickers in a twist over. I was doing nude scenes from the first moment I started doing movies. It was the era...That’s the good thing about getting older, you don’t have to do that sort of thing anymore. My pleasure pillows are purely for my husband.”

Matt Damon Inserts Foot Further In Mouth

Matt Damon needs to hire a new publicist, stat! The actor recently sat down for an interview with The Guardian, where he had this to say about gay actors:

"But in terms of actors, I think you're a better actor the less people know about you, period. And sexuality is a huge part of that. Whether you're straight or gay, people shouldn't know anything about your sexuality because that's one of the mysteries that you should be able to play. It's just like any piece of gossip...and it put us in a weird position of having to answer, you know what I mean? Which was then really deeply offensive. I don’t want to, like, [imply] it’s some sort of disease — then it's like I’m throwing my friends under the bus. But at the time, I remember thinking and saying, Rupert Everett was openly gay, and this guy — more handsome than anybody, a classically trained actor — it’s tough to make the argument that he didn’t take a hit for being out."

Matt Damon appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, where he stated the following, as quoted by Page Six:

"I was just trying to say actors are more effective when they’re a mystery. And somebody picked it up and said I said gay actors should get back in the closet. Which is like, I mean it’s stupid, but it is painful when things get said that you don’t believe. You know what I mean? And it gets represented that that’s what you believe."


Someone needs to tell Matt to stop doing anything where he has original thoughts for a while, and stick to doing stuff like this:


Jim Carrey's Ex Commits Suicide

Carrey released the following statement: "I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona. She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled. My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her. We have all been hit with a lightning bolt."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Iconic Screaming

When you think about Humphrey Bogart, you think about his role as Rick Blaine in Casablanca. When you think about this late actress, you think about her star-making role in one of the most classic films of all time.

They are going to be making a biopic about this gorgeous, iconic actress. Everyone wants the part. Everyone.

One famous film actress – who we think would be appropriate for the role – wants the part very badly. So when she heard that another actress was being considered for it, she completely flipped out.

She called [her agent] and was practically screaming about [the other actress]. “She can’t have that role! It’s mine! Why the hell is anyone even putting her name out there as ‘considered’? Who did she have to fuck to get ‘considered’? She looks nothing like [the classic actress]! I’m the one who look likes her!” On and on…

Geena Davis Talks About Hollywood's Gender Inequality

Geena Davis recently sat down for an interview with The Guardian, where she talked about gender inequality in Hollywood. The publication quotes her as follows:

"After Thelma & Louise, which was pretty noticed and potent and significant, [people said] 'This changes everything! There’s going to be so many female buddy movies!' and nothing changed. And then the next movie I did was A League of Their Own, which was a huge hit and all the talk was, 'Well now, beyond a doubt, women’s sports movies, we’re going to see a wave of them because this was so successful.' That’s balls. It took 10 years until Bend It Like Beckham came out. So, there was no trend whatsoever. 


And then in my 40s I made one movie. And I was positive it wasn’t going to happen to me because I got a lot of great parts for women. I was very fortunate to have all that stuff happen and never get typecast, so I was just cruising along thinking: 'Well yeah, it won’t happen to me.' It did. My two-pronged solution to the entire problem is just before you cast a film or a TV show, go through the characters and change a bunch of first names to female — hooray! Now you’ve got a gender-balanced cast, you’ve got female characters who are un-stereotyped because they were written actually for a man and then, wherever it says, 'a crowd gathers,' put 'which is half female.' "

Hayden Panettiere Talks Postpartum Depression

Hayden Panettiere recently appeared on Live! with Kelly and Michael, where she talked about suffering from postpartum depression (something she shares with the character she portrays on the show Nashville). People quotes her as follows:

"I can very much relate. It’s something a lot of women experience. When [you’re told] about postpartum depression you think it’s, ‘I feel negative feelings towards my child, I want to injure or hurt my child’ — I’ve never, ever had those feelings. Some women do. But you don’t realize how broad of a spectrum you can really experience that on. It’s something that needs to be talked about. Women need to know that they’re not alone, and that it does heal. There’s a lot of misunderstanding — there’s a lot of people out there that think that it’s not real, that it’s not true, that it’s something that’s made up in their minds, that ‘Oh, it’s hormones.’ They brush it off. It’s something that’s completely uncontrollable. It’s really painful and it’s really scary and women need a lot of support. Women are amazing. We do something that no man can do on this planet. I mean, we grow a human being in our body!”

Justin Bieber Talks Religion

Justin Bieber recently sat down for an interview with Complex Magazine, where he talked about a variety of topics, including religion. The magazine quotes him as follows:

On his relationship with Jesus Christ:
"My voice, I’m not gonna let it not be heard anymore. I’m gonna use my voice for a reason. I think that people, as soon as they start hearing me saying I’m a Christian, they’re like, 'Whoa Justin, back up, take a step back.' Also, I do not want to shove this down anyone’s throat. I just wanna honestly live like Jesus. Not be Jesus  I could never  I don’t want that to come across weird. He created a pretty awesome template of how to love people and how to be gracious and kind. If you believe it, he died for our sins. Sometimes when I don’t feel like doing something, but I know it’s right, I remember, I’m pretty sure Jesus didn’t feel like going to the cross and dying so that we don’t have to feel what we should have to feel."


On his relationship with church:
"Like I said before, Christians leave such a bad taste in people’s mouths, even myself. I was like, I’m not gonna go to church. I had these church friends and I was like, you guys are cool, I like you guys, but I’m not going to church. Then it was the same thing of, just because you went to a weird church before doesn’t mean that this is weird. It doesn’t make you a Christian just by going to church. I think that going to church is fellowship, it’s relationship, it’s what we’re here on the earth to do, to have this connection that you feel there’s no insecurities. I think that’s where we need to be. Like I said, you don’t need to go to church to be a Christian. If you go to Taco Bell, that doesn’t make you a taco."
