Hef's Former Girlfriends in Drunken Crash On The Way To Nipple Piercing

The Shannon twins, Karissa and Kristina, recently appeared on Botched to fix their noses and boobs. You may also remember them from the final season of Girls Next Door, when they moved into the mansion to start dating Hef when Holly, Kendra, and Bridget moved out. Back to the story at hand, the Shannon twins like posing topless, and must have decided that it was time to have some more adornments, because they decided to get their nipples pierced! If one does, the other has to, because twins! 

And because there are only so many brain cells between them, they thought it would be an awesome idea to get really drunk first to numb the pain. So they sloppily poured into their Mercedes SUV, and swerved along to the piercing shop. But they didn't make it very far before flipping their car. Luckily, they only injured themselves (and their car; the roof was cut off to remove Kristina from the car). LAist reports that the two only suffered minor scrapes and bruises; I'm assuming their recently plastic surgery stayed in tact. Kristina was booked for DUI, as she was the twin that was driving. Get it together, girls! As they say, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life!

Comedian Ralphie May Getting Divorced

Lahna Turner has filed for divorce from comedian Ralphie May after ten years of marriage, reports TMZ. The couple have two children together, a daughter who is 8, and a son who is 6. Lahna is requesting sole physical and joint legal custody, as well as spousal support.

Lamar Odom Update

There is some positive news coming out of Las Vegas - TMZ reports that Lamar Odom is being weaned off life support, because he has been able to breathe without the ventilator periodically. Odom's heart has also shown signs of improvement, and it looks like Odom was never without oxygen. That bodes very well for his recovery. Many different media outlets are publishing sometimes conflicting information; I would stick with checking TMZ for the most accurate updates.

Blind Gossip Exclusive Blind Item - Dirty and Clean

We have some controversial new information about this athlete’s downfall!

When you are trying to run a legal business – even a dirty one – the last thing you want is for one celebrity client’s behavior to possibly put your entire business in jeopardy.

So, after a terrible event involving an athlete took place at his business, this business owner took immediate action.

We are being told by an insider that he completely cleaned up the “scene” before the police got there. He took all the drugs and drug paraphernalia that the celebrity was using… and disposed of them before help arrived! That way, his business would have no liability for the unfortunate events that transpired.

It’s just business.

Lena Dunham Talks New Website, Twitter

Lena Dunham recently sat down for an interview with Harper's Bazaar, where she talked about launching her new website Lenny. The magazine quotes her as follows:

On the decision to launch the site:
"There were all these incredible young women there—radical, smart. I felt like there should be a space for these girls who care just as much about politics as about how to color their hair pink or whatever. Our grand ambition is to really becomes a safe place for women on the Internet that's funny and not snarky. I've been put to bed for weeks from reading things about myself on sites that used to be considered feminist gospel. I love the Internet because every piece of true pain I've experienced as an adult—with the exception of death in the family and breakups—has come from it."

On Twitter:
"Celebrities can complain all they want about how cruel Twitter is, but we signed up for it. Who didn't sign up for it are the teenage girls who bully each other to suicide using Twitter. There's no shortage of stories of how Twitter and Instagram and Facebook, these incredible tools for self-expression, have also led to girls feeling ostracized, alone, slut-shamed. We just want to restore some semblance to safety."

On not allowing comments on her new site Lenny:
"It never ends well. I mean, have you ever read, "Girls, let's all go meet for drinks! You guys are such nice people!"

Prince William Talks Grief

Prince William recently spoke at the 21st anniversary of the Child Bereavement UK Charity, an organization supported by his late mother, Princess Diana. People quotes him as follows:

"Twenty-one years ago last month, my mother attended the launch of the Child Bereavement Charity," William began his speech. "Fifteen years later, I was honored to be invited to become Patron of Child Bereavement UK to continue my mother's commitment to a charity which is very dear to me. What my mother recognized back then ­and what I understand now is that grief is the most painful experience that any child or parent can endure. I have witnessed first-hand the difference CBUK has made­ and continues to make ­to the lives of bereaved families. CBUK works with military families, with the wrecked families of suicide victims, with little children whose lives are torn apart by the inexplicable death of a parent. And yet amid all this misery, CBUK ­– and I don't know how they do this ­– brings warmth, comfort, a guiding hand, a way through, even color and joyfulness, and a renewed opportunity for love as a family reknits itself after tragedy." 

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Yes People

This A-list actress from The Golden Age used to surround herself all-the-time with people that would do nothing but compliment her. That was their job. They were paid to compliment her. Whether she wore a hideous coat of wolf skin or a way too tight-fitting dress of velvet, they would always compliment her.

Aaron Rogers Talks Olivia Munn

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers recently sat down for an interview with ESPN Wisconsin, where he had this to say about girlfriend of over a year Olivia Munn:

"She's a huge encourager and a huge supporter. She's put some of her own career goals on hold for me to encourage me in achieving my own. With Olivia, I have that person who is in my corner always, is willing to make me a priority and be understanding with my life and everything that comes with it."

Celebrity Real Estate - Jonah Hill Edition

Jonah Hill has listed his Hollywood Hills home for sale for $2.995 million. The 3,660 square foot home features three bedrooms, three full bathrooms plus one additional shitter, a guest house which has another shitter, along with a (never used) yoga room. See pictures of the property at Variety.

Mid Day Blind Item - Taking His Work Casually

He is one of the most promising actors in the industry and has a string of hits that testify the fact. He was expected to rule the roost, going by his good looks and immense talent. He’s known to be hardworking too. So, there really was nothing to stop him from reaching the pinnacle. 

But we hear he has now started taking things casually. He is apparently too busy glugging his drink (and a few things stronger than that) to care about where his career is headed. The recent setbacks in his personal life might have contributed to his erratic behaviour, but even then we are surprised that this dedicated actor has turned lackadaisical. 

On the sets of his next film, the director, crew and other actors have to wait hours for him to arrive for his shot, leading to frustration and discontent. While the producer is chewing his nails over financial losses, the director is unhappy about the unnecessary delay in his project. 

“The cast mostly comprises newcomers, who have no choice but to shoot as per the main actor’s whims and fancies,” says a source close to the project.

Ruth Wilson Talks Cheating, The Affair

Actress Ruth Wilson recently sat down for an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, where she talked about infidelity and this season of The Affair. The publication quotes her as follows:

"The Ashley Madison website that got hacked — 37 million people were signed on to an infidelity site. It kind of suggests that infidelity happens an awful lot. We treat it with such stigma, but actually so many people do it, so I’m not sure why the stigma exists in a way.”

On whether or not she thinks that monogamy is antiquated:
"Certainly in North America and in the U.K., we’re very rigidly conventional in a way. We’re upholding these institutions and I’m not sure work anymore. I don’t know. I mean, that’s a question — it’s a big debate. The Ashley Madison website that got hacked — 37 million people were signed on to an infidelity site — kind of suggests that infidelity happens an awful lot. We treat it with such stigma, but actually so many people do it. I’m not sure why the stigma exists in a way. Not that I’m saying it doesn’t have consequences. That’s the problem — it has huge ramifications, but the source of that might be because we’ve put so much expectation on what marriage should be. Maybe our expectations are wrong. It’s a major question. As women are becoming more economically independent and don’t need marriage as a way to support themselves, it’s slightly changing the dynamics of what it means."

More Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Books On The Way

After Stieg Larssson's passing, author David Lagercrantz was picked to continue the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series. Lagercrantz's first book for the series, The Girl in the Spider's Web, was released recently and sold 200,000 copies in its first week. The Hollywood Reporter announces that Swedish publisher Nordstedts is so happy with Lagercrantz's performance, that they have ordered two more books from his for the series. The next book will come out in 2017, and the sixth book in the series is slated for release in 2019.

Heidi Montag Talks About Hating LC To Stay Relevant

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt don't have anything of their own going on, so they have decided to continue to ride Lauren Conrad's jock to say relevant. Heidi called up Us Weekly to talk trash about her former friend; here's what she had to say:

"I spent years pretending to like her for a living. It was literally my job to deal with her, and it wasn’t pleasant… I had nothing to do with her problems. I even tried to help her. The fact is, she lied about me and tried to destroy my life, yet I was the one painted as the villain so the show could have her as the good guy. It’s not that I care about [LC] anymore, but it is upsetting to me that everyone knows by now that The Hills was a scripted show, yet people still think the negative stuff about me that the show set up to make me the villain to her hero was real. It’s bizarre. It’s like if people were still mad at James Earl Jones for being the voice of Darth Vader! I don’t wish her any ill will, but I also don’t have to lie for her or play along with her story line as part of my job anymore. I was pretending to be someone I wasn’t for those years I was on the show and I think people got an image of me that just wasn’t me.  So I’ve just decided that I’m never going to be anything other than honest about her or my time on the show.”

Not to be outdone, Spencer Pratt called up Complex Magazine, and told them the following:
"Lauren is a cold-hearted killer. That's what people don't get. She will cut you in your sleep. She tried to destroy us. If you want to throw missiles, I'm throwing a nuke. This is how I operate." He then admitted to the magazine that he was the one to circulate the rumour that Lauren Conrad had made a sex tape with ex-boyfriend Jason Wahler; a claim that he had previously denied for years. You stay classy, Speidi!

Blind Gossip Exclusive Blind Item - At His Dealer's Apartment

We’ve told you before that this guy is unable to handle the pressure his family puts on him to be part of their money-making operation; that he suffers from severe depression; and that he uses drugs to escape.

And now his situation has actually taken a turn for the worse!

In the past few months, he has been spotted multiple times at a certain apartment complex in Southern California, just outside of Los Angeles. He doesn’t live there. The residents of this complex are much more downmarket compared to the wealthy family from which he hails.

When he drives up in an expensive car like a Rolls Royce or a Bentley or a Range Rover, people notice. When he gets out of his car and goes straight into a known drug dealer’s apartment and stays there all day, people notice.

What is this dealer’s specialty? Crystal meth and crack cocaine.

Our guy is heading down the same road as a former member of his family.

Kardashian Korner

Us Weekly reports that Scott Disick, 32, has entered rehab in Malibu. Disick is getting clean in preparation for custody talks with Kourtney Kardashian; he is currently only allowed supervised visits. Look, it's easy to bag on Douchelord Disick, but those of us who have lost a parent know how extremely hard it is. I can't even imagine how difficult it is to lose both parents within months of each other at his age. Here's hoping he finally gets the help that he needs in order to start to heal.


On to Lamar Odom: he and Khloe Kardashian are still married. TMZ reports that since the LA courts have such a backlog, even though the couple signed the divorce documents back in July, they probably won't make it in front of a judge for at least another two months. Khloe is currently in charge of making decisions. As for his condition, check TMZ for the latest updates, but Odom had cocaine in his system when admitted, and has suffered from a series of strokes since arriving at the hospital.

Yoko Ono Talks John Lennon And Sex

Yoko Ono recently sat down for an interview with The Daily Beast, where she talked about John Lennon. The publication quotes her as follows:

"John and I had a big talk about it, saying, basically, all of us must be bisexual. And we were sort of in a situation of thinking that we’re not [bisexual] because of society. So we are hiding the other side of ourselves, which is less acceptable. But I don’t have a strong sexual desire towards another woman. Many people think I’m a strong woman. I never thought that, but probably I am. Maybe they think I really don’t go for men, but it’s not true. I like normal relationships... whatever ‘a normal relationship’ is. I think he had a desire to [have sex with other men], but I think he was too inhibited. No, not inhibited. He said, ‘I don’t mind if there’s an incredibly attractive guy.’ It’s very difficult: They would have to be not just physically attractive, but mentally very advanced too. And you can’t find people like that.”


Jane Fonda Talks Katharine Hepburn


Jane Fonda recently sat down for a lengthy interview with The Hollywood Reporter which covered a variety of topics, including Katharine Hepburn. The publication quotes her as follows:

"I saw the play On Golden Pond and I thought, you know, my part is the smaller part, but oh boy this is a great part for [my father]. It could win him an Oscar before he died. He died five months after he won his Oscar. And so I produced it, and we didn’t know right away who we were going to get for the woman. And one day, me and my producing partner Bruce Gilbert, the office phone rang: 'Hello.  Guess who?  It’s Katharine Hepburn.'  And you know, she pretty much said, 'I want to do this.' ...Her first words to me in person were, 'I don’t like you,' which, you know, is kind of like having God say that you’re worthless. [LAUGHTER] And the reason that she was so angry I realized, I found out, she told me, is because she and my father had never met.  I mean that’s one of the interesting things about Hollywood.  You can be a big star but never meet each other, and they had never met. And so it was in the context of: they were going to be working together on On Golden Pond when they met, and I wasn’t there.

Which to her was a huge sign of disrespect.  I had chosen instead — because I was about to do a movie I’d spent 12 years developing called The Dollmaker — I was on a road trip with Dolly Parton, trying to discover what it meant to be a hillbilly.  I mean, you know, right?  But she was so angry with me.  And then she said, 'I’ve torn my rotator cuff, and I think you should hire Geraldine Page.'  And the minute she said that I knew what the deal was.  She was going to offer to quit before I or my partner would have a chance to say, 'We can’t really, you know, you’re not going to be well enough in a month,' and so she took the offensive.  And then when I said to her — totally, by now, I was a shriveling piece of humility — 'Oh, Miss Hepburn' (which I always called her: Miss Hepburn, always) 'We will wait for you. There is no one else that can do this part. We will make the canoe you have to carry out of balsa wood if necessary, but you must…'

So once she realized, then she said, 'Who’s going to get top billing?' [LAUGHTER] Because she thought, you know, it’s interesting ’cause right at that moment in cinema history she was a much older woman who was no longer a box office draw, and I was more of a box office draw.  So she assumed, because it’s what she would have done, that I would request top billing.

Let me just tell you the last thing she said to me. When I was nominated as best supporting actress, she was nominated as best actress.  My father was nominated as best (actor), they both won and I didn’t. Neither of them were there, they were too sick.  I called her the next day to congratulate her.  You know what she said to me?  'You’ll never catch me now.' [LAUGHTER] And it took me a second to realize what she was talking about. She’s so competitive. I had two, she had three.  If she hadn’t won and I had we’d be tied. [LAUGHTER] Now she had four, there’s no way I’m going to catch up to her.  Such a character. [LAUGHTER]

Oh, well she was on the one hand very prickly. I mean she was a snob, she was very moody, she was very judgmental.  Michael Jackson came and stayed for ten days on the set.  And when I first asked her permission, there’s this young singer, a black young singer that I would like to invite, she was not happy.  Black kid is going to? But then the crew said you don’t understand. It’s Michael Jackson. We lived together. I went skinny dipping with him. Also, by the way, with Greta Garbo."

Carrie Underwood Talks Anxiety

Carrie Underwood recently sat down for an interview with People. She has spoken in the past about struggling with panic attacks, and admits to people that she still has trouble around groups of people. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"I still deal with those feelings. I still get totally nervous in group situations. I don't always know what to say. I can be super awkward, and I will say the wrong thing. My favorite word is 'okay.' If somebody says something to me that I don't know how to respond to, or if I'm in a weird situation where I'm just uncomfortable and there's a lot of people, even if somebody is being super sweet and cool, I'm like 'Okay.' I don't always know what to say."

Jenny McCarthy Wants To Be Last Nude Playmate

Jennifer McCarthy recently talked on her radio show about Playboy's announcement that they were going to stop having nudity in their magazines. Here's what she had to say, as reprinted by Page Six:

"It kind of breaks my heart that it’s the end of that era, that we have to lose what I would consider very classy nudity in a magazine. In solidarity I will be wearing my panties at half-mast. I would totally be willing to just take it all off one more time — just to say I’ll be in the last one."

Dance Mom's Abby Lee Miller Indicted For Fraud

Abby Lee Miller would fit right in with the Real Housewives of New Jersey. While Teresa Giudice is sitting in prison for bankruptcy fraud, Dance Mom's Abby Lee Miller just got indicted with the same charge. Apparently Miller filed for bankruptcy back in 2010, and purposely hid money in order to defraud the bankruptcy court. Smooth move, ace. Us Weekly reports that if convicted, Miller faces up to 5 years in prison, and a fine of $250,000 for each count of the indictment (of which there are 20). Here's hoping the judge is as verbally abusive to her as she is to small children trying to learn how to dance!

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Singers Sucking And Humping

We received multiple tips over the weekend that these two famous singers were engaging in some blatant PDA while on stage!

X and Y are officially a couple! They were sucking face during the middle of a performance!

Another wrote:

It’s obvious that X and Y were kissing and are deeply in love! When will they announce that they are a couple? I can’t wait!

Another reader told us:

X and Y were f*cking on stage!!! They totally stripped down during a song and started humping each other and they didn’t even care that everyone saw them!!!

No. No. And no.

Just… no.

This is simply a case of two energetic performers and friends running around on stage and bumping into each other and getting tangled up. Then they were leaning in to hear what the other one was saying above the screaming crowd. That does not equal sucking or humping or f*cking.

Sorry, kids! We know that you really, really want to see at least one couple emerge from this group of friends… but this couple is not it!

Karl Lagerfeld Still Gives Great Interview

T, The New York Times Style Magazine, recently interviewed Karl Lagerfeld, and it was amazing as always. Here are some of Karl's thoughts, as quoted by the New York Times:

A meditation on the past, as prompted by the mention of Proust:
"My problem is I have no experience. Because I don’t believe in experience.’’ Interviewer: "You have no past?" Lagerfeld: ‘‘Not as far as I remember. For other people, maybe. But personally I make no effort to remember. I like the language in Proust, but not the context. I could say something mean. It’s all — you know — the son of the concierge looking at society people. There was this woman who survived from that group. The wife of a banker, Madame Porgès. They had a huge hôtel particulier in front of the Plaza Athénée hotel, where LVMH is now. She died a hundred years after everyone else. She was not very chic, and people said, ‘She was the last person who could remember a world she was never part of.’ Some couture designer — to be kind I will not say his name — once said to me he liked Proust because Françoise Sagan coached him in the best passages.’’ When asked if he was referencing Yves Saint Laurent: ‘‘There was a moment when designers draped in ermine would be reading Proust, or pretending to.’’ The shade!

More on why he doesn't dwell on the past:

‘‘One day it will be over and I don’t care. As my mother used to say, ‘There is one God for everybody and all the religions are shops.’ ’’ His mother read constantly, he said. ‘‘I remember her being on the couch reading and telling other people what to do. ... I spent my childhood in the country and started reading even before going to school. There was nothing else in my life but sketching and reading.’’

On Therapy:
‘‘What for? To get back to normality? I don’t want to be normal.’’

On his ideal of a perfect woman today:
‘‘Julianne Moore. I don’t know [why]. I just think she’s great. Her whole life; the way she is in life. And Jessica Chastain — she’s great, too. Of the younger generation, I love Kristen Stewart. She is gifted. She looks tough but in fact she’s the nicest person in the world.’’

On Feminism:
‘‘I was taught it as a child, not to overestimate the importance of men. My mother was interested in the history of feminism. And in my childhood I heard about Hedwig Dohm, a German-Jewish feminist who was a writer in Berlin. The rights of women in Germany in the 1870s were limited to the Three Ks — Küche, Kirche and Kinder — the kitchen, the church and the children. Her granddaughter Katia later married Thomas Mann. Nobody remembers. People remember the English suffragettes but the first to care about women’s rights was Hedwig Dohm.’’

Read the entire exquisite interview at The New York Times.


Lea Michele Talks Fears

Lea Michele recently sat down for an interview with Women's Health, where she opened up about her fears. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"I really don’t like to be in a car with more than five people. That really freaks me out because I’m always afraid the tires are going to pop. It’s this super weird thing that I’m afraid of...Doing a horror television show, you’re always going to be there late at night and you will have to be scared constantly. We did this one scene where I was like buried up to my neck.  We literally were in tubes underground with just our heads popping out and it was so scary. If you’re claustrophobic — I legitimately had spiders crawling up my face because it was the lawn. These huge spiders and [creator] Ryan Murphy would have to come and whack them off my face.  I was like ‘Only for you, Ryan, would I literally be buried in the ground, with my head sticking out, with spiders crawling on my face.’”

Johnny Depp Says He Doesn't Want An Oscar

The BBC recently caught up with Johnny Depp at the London Film Festival, and he had this to say about winning an Oscar:

"I don't want to win one of those things ever, you know? I don't want to have to talk. They gave me one of those things, like a nomination, two or three times. A nomination is plenty. The idea of winning means that you're in competition with someone and I'm not in competition with anybody. I just stick to my guns and do what I want to do. Sometimes people don't like it but that's alright." 

And on buzz that Black Mass was his comeback role:
"What did I come back from? The dead. I haven't done anything different in this than I have in any other film." 


J Law Talks Gender Pay Gap

Actress Jennifer Lawrence recently penned a piece for Lena Dunham's newsletter Lenny, where she talked about the Sony hack that revealed she was paid significantly less than her male costars were for American Hustle. Page Six excerpts her post as follows:

"I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early. I gave up early. I didn’t want to keep fighting over millions of dollars that, frankly, due to two franchises, I don’t need. I would be lying if I didn’t say there was an element of wanting to be liked that influenced my decision to close the deal without a real fight. I didn’t want to seem ‘difficult’ or ‘spoiled.’ This could be a young person thing. I’m sure it’s both. But this is an element of my personality that I’ve been working against for years, and based on the statistics, I don’t think I’m the only woman with this issue. I’m over trying to find the ‘adorable’ way to state my opinion and still be likable. Fuck that. I don’t think I’ve ever worked for a man in charge who spent time contemplating what angle he should use to have his voice heard. It’s just heard."

And on the Sony Hack revealing that Angelina Jolie was referred to as a "spoiled brat":
“For some reason, I just can’t picture someone saying that about a man.”


Celebrity Real Estate - Britney Spears Edition

Looks like that residency is paying off! Brit Brit just dropped $7.4 million on a huge 21-acre compound in the Los Angeles area. The main house is 12,464 square feet, and features five bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and at least one additional shitter, a tennis court, an orchard, and a three-hole golf course.

Rapper T.I. Weighs In On The Election

T.I. recently appeared on SiruisXM where he had this to say about the upcoming presidential election, as reprinted by Rolling Stone:

"Not to be sexist, but I can't vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman. Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But, the president? It's kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, cemented decisions — and then later, it's kind of like it didn't happen, or they didn't mean for it to happen. The world ain't ready yet. I think you might be able to get the Loch Ness Monster elected before [a woman]. It's not right, but I'm just saying."

After Tiny smacked the stupid out of him, T.I. tweeted the following: "My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended."



More On Shia LaBeouf's Recent Arrest

We all knew that the original arrest reports that came out seemed way too calm. TMZ finally has the full story. No, Shia did not use the ever-popular "Don't you know who I am?" He called the arresting officer a "Silly Man!" He also told them to let him go, like the LAPD does all the time, because they killed his friend. Say wha? Then Shia really got mad when he saw someone videotaping the confrontation with their cell phone. He attempted to charge the bystander like a rhino, but the officer stopped him. Shia then changed tactics, and told the officer that he was a member of the National Guard. When none of his usual bag of tricks worked, a resigned Shia finally barked, "Do whatever the fuck you gotta do!" And scene.

Hugh Grant Going To Be A Dad Again

People reports that Hugh Grant is catching up to Jude Law in the children department! Grant, 55, is expecting a child with Swedish TV producer Anna Eberstein. This will be the couple's second child together; they are already parents to son John Mungo, 3. Grant is also father to daughter Tabitha, 4, and son Felix, 2 1/2, with Tinglan Hong. Hmm, so there was a bit of an overlap there. This will make four children and two baby mamas for Grant, so he is still lagging behind Law's five children with three baby mamas (well, one wife and two baby mamas). 

Lamar Odom Hospitalized

TMZ reports that Lamar Odom, 35, was found unconscious at the Love Ranch South brothel in Pahrump, Nevada on Tuesday afternoon. Odom was rushed to a Las Vegas hospital by ambulance, where he was intubated by doctors, meaning that he is not able to breathe on his own. Odom had been partying at the brothel for days, and a source says he was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra. Odom lost two of his close friends to drugs this year; Bobby Heyward passed away from an overdose on June 20th, and Jamie Sangouthai passed away on June 14th from a flesh-eating disease caused by using dirty needles. Khloe Kardashian is currently by his side at the hospital.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Self-Loathing Minority

This actress has starred in more than one successful TV series.

She has this quirk about her. Although she got her first and her second big jobs because she is a member of a minority group… she now tries to distance herself from that group whenever possible!

[Actress] has a certain self-loathing about her background. She gets annoyed when people describe her as X. Her [Significant Other] is X, but other than that, she doesn’t want to to hire them and she doesn’t have many X friends herself. She thinks that it makes her seem more upper class. Whenever I talk about someone she doesn’t know, the first thing she asks me is “Are they X?” like she is getting ready to be dismissive of them if they are X. It’s just weird.

Serial Scoop Blind Items - Bonus Round

In the world of daytime soap operas, the drama isn't always in front of the camera. And sometimes it's so juicy the names can't be revealed, at least not yet. Below are some recent items that insiders are talking about, when they think no one is listening.

1. This performer never has a negative thing to say about his/her show in the press. However, he/she has been actively campaigning for years to join a rival soap.

2. These young co-stars are two of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. So why can't they stand each other?

3. This performer has big aspirations, but to achieve them he/she might want to stop burning bridges with questionable behavior. Pay your debts!


4. This performer will last air in the next few weeks, but this exit is not what fans are expecting.

In Case You Couldn't Tell, David Bowie Has Retired From Touring

The last time that David Bowie went on tour was back in 2004. Just in case you had any hopes of him returning to the stage, British concert promoter John Giddings has some news for you, as quoted by Music Week

"David is one of the best artists I’ve ever worked with. But every time I see him now, before I even speak to him, he goes, ‘I’m not touring’ and I say, I’m not asking. He has decided to retire and, like Phil Collins, you can’t demand these people go out there again and again and again. I’m really pleased and proud that the last show he ever did in the U.K. was the 2004 Isle Of Wight Festival.”


Melinda Clarke Is Married

Former The O.C. and CSI actress Melinda Clarke, 46, married Adam Farmer, 38, in where else? The OC, reports People. The couple were married in Dana Point in September. Clarke said of her husband: "We met when he was on a river rafting trip. We were friends for a few years and we really connected through nature and his love of nature...We didn’t have a wedding coordinator. My husband and I planned every little detail by ourselves– we basically said it’s a beach fiesta, and we did gourmet taco trucks, feet in the sand and made it very casual.”

Nigella Lawson Hates "Clean Eating"

Celebrity chef Nigella Lawson recently sat down for an interview with The BBC, where she talked about "clean eating." The BBC quotes her as follows:

“I think behind the notion of ‘clean eating’ is an implication that any other form of eating is dirty or shameful. I think that food should not be used as a way of persecuting oneself and I think, really, one should look to get pleasure and revel in what’s good rather than either think, ‘Oh no, that’s dirty, bad or sinful’ or that ‘eating is virtuous.' I don’t like people thinking they’re better people themselves for the way they eat. We make choices for ourselves either for our health, delight, according to our income, according to our taste buds, but I don’t think it should ever be a status symbol.”

TV Show Roundup 10/13/15

Casting News:
The Hollywood Reporter announces that Paul Reubens aka PeeWee Herman is joining the cast of Gotham as Penguin's father.

No. Just No:
TV Line reports that some idiots over at ABC think that they can remake Fantasy Island. To show you just how inventive they are, ABC is going to have a woman heading things up instead of Mr. Rourke. And the show isn't even taking place on an Island; it's headed to San Francisco. I give it three episodes, tops. In the immortal words of Susan Powter, Stop The Instanity!

Taylor Swift Not Writing Breakup Songs about Calvin Harris

Taylor Swift has been in the news way too much lately, so naturally media outlets are reporting that she and boyfriend Calvin Harris have split (because you can only write about her gang of girlfriends for so many days in a row). People reports that rumours of the couple's demise have been greatly exaggerated, and that the pair are still going strong. Selena Gomez also shut down split rumours on behalf of Swift on Monday. As a card-carrying member of Swift's Girl Gang (that doesn't roll off the tongue. How about Swift's Sapphic Set?), Gomez would obviously know her relationship status at all times.
