Blind Gossip Blind Item - Wedding Extortion

A couple of years ago, this famous musician got married in a major city.

He paid for the venue months ahead of time, but a few weeks before the wedding, city officials began adding on fees for the venue to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars! It was too late to change the venue – and he didn’t want to cancel the wedding – so the musician paid up, but he was furious at the extortion. He and his reality star wife have been fighting to get the money back ever since.

Hollywood Reporter Roundtable On Documentary Filmmakers

The Hollywood Reporter recently gathered Michael Moore, Alex Gibney, Amy Berg, Kirby Dick, Liz Gabrus, and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi for a roundtable to discuss documentary filmmaking. Some of the highlights are below:

What personal price have you paid to be documentary filmmakers?
DICK When you make a strong film, if you don't get that reaction, perhaps you haven't made the film strong enough. You're going into a territory — sexual assault, for example — that people want to cover up. If I haven't made that impact, where it's causing people to respond and even to come at me, I really haven't told the whole truth.

GIBNEY That's very important we engage, even if there's hostility — and I certainly have experienced a good bit.

MOORE I wish I just got hostility. (Laughs.)

GARBUS That'd be awesome.

BERG No death threats?

MOORE One thing I've learned is that the person who wants to hurt you does not send you a note in advance. The death threats are great; it's the half a dozen assaults and attempts on my life [that aren't], including a man who built a fertilizer bomb to plant under our home to blow it up — he went to prison — and the others who assaulted me with knives and billy clubs. [In Florida], a really nicely dressed man in a three-piece suit comes out of Starbucks and sees me, and he just turned purple and the vein started bulging. I call it the "Limbaugh Vein" — you know, it's like after they've had three hours of listening to Rush. And he takes the lid off his hot, scalding coffee and throws it in my face. And only because I had this security guy with me [was I safe]. He put his face in front of mine and took the hit. Got second-degree burns. We had to take him to the hospital, but not before he took the guy down on the sidewalk and handcuffed him. After my Oscar speech [for Bowling for Columbine] and Fahrenheit 9/11, I've lived a number of years with this kind of horrible situation.

Are you afraid?
MOORE Well, yeah, I'm afraid. Yeah, of course. But I reached a certain point where I had to just stop being afraid, and I got rid of the security. I couldn't live that way anymore. It was difficult on our family. People around me were afraid they were going be the collateral damage. And so finally I just decided: I'm in my 50s, I've lived a good life. Nobody will say I didn't make a contribution. And if it's going to happen today, it happens today, and you just live with it. And, actually, it was kind of liberating, that day when I decided to get rid of the security.

GIBNEY It's a funny thing that sometimes happens when you're outspoken and very public about it: It gives you a peculiar kind of protection. Because you're being out front. You're not hiding. And that in itself is important.

How do you decide whether to keep going when a subject locks the doors to you?
GIBNEY Usually, when your road is blocked, it ends up causing you to take a more interesting path. [On Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God], the pope wouldn't give me any access, so I had to go around him. Your journey is the interesting part. If you allow yourself to be surprised, and change as you go, anything's possible.

What surprised you, Alex, in making a film about Scientology?
GIBNEY You think of Scientology, and you think anybody who would be involved in that has got to be a wing nut. I met all these people who had left, and they were so smart, perceptive, empathetic. It ended up being a kind of journey into understanding — that all of us can fall into a belief system that suddenly persuades us to do things we might otherwise find appalling.

But aren't we all to some degree prisoners of our beliefs?
MOORE I'm raised Catholic; I went to the seminary to be a priest. But because it's the dominant culture, Christianity, we don't think of it as being strange that this piece of bread is actually the body of Jesus or that we're drinking his blood. So nobody would make a documentary about how mondo bizarro that is. The original texts of all the faiths are pretty good. They all say that you should treat the poor well and be good to your neighbor. It's the institutionalization of these faiths [that's a problem].

Jennifer Lawrence Covers Vogue

Jennifer Lawrence is on the December cover of Vogue magazine. Here are some of the highlights from her cover interview:

On her dating life, as she points to her bed:
“This is where the maaagic haaaappens. Literally zero magic has happened in here. Cheers to my hymen growing back!”

On how she got her dog Pippi (her mom was visitng with a new puppy at the time of the "fappening"):
“I was outside crying, and Pippi jumped up on my lap and started licking up all my tears, and I couldn’t put her down for hours. And I mean, hours. I was like, ‘Well, obviously, you’re mine.’...It was all pain and no gain. But I don’t dwell on it unless someone brings it up. Have you seen me naked?”

On being "new money":
“Sorry the wine isn’t cold. I always forget you’re supposed to chill rosé—I’m new money. I go outside in the morning and drink my coffee and try to be proud of myself and be like, ‘Look!’ It feels good not to worry about money, although I never did. Money never really affected my consciousness, if that makes any sense.”

On what she does with her downtime:
“Downtime is normally the bane of my existence. It makes me depressed, not relaxed. But I was actually enjoying myself this time. [I] hang out. Drink wine. I’ve got a bunch of friends who live really close, thank God. And I’ve made friends with Mila and Ashton, two doors down. They’re awesome. I go over there uninvited. They’re probably getting pretty sick of me.”

Amber Heard Talks Being A Step Mom

Amber Heard, 29, recently sat down for an interview with Marie Claire, where she talked about being a step mom to Johnny's Depp's children Lily-Rose, 16, and Jack, 13. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"[It's] an honor and the greatest, most surprising gift I have ever received in my life ... I feel new flavors that I didn't know existed. New colors that I didn't know existed have been added to my life. I'm so happy." 

On being limited by her looks:  
"I wish I didn't have to pick between being seen as sexually viable and something more substantial."

Mr. Bean Is Divorced (But Not On The Market)

Rowan Atkinson, 60, who you may know better as Mr. Bean, has finalized his divorce from his wife of 24 years Sunetra Sastry, reports Us Weekly. The pair have two children together: son Benjamin, 22, and daughter Lily, 20. Atkinson has been dating actress Louise Ford, 32, since he split from his wife 18 months ago (and some tabloid outlets are reporting that he has been dating her for longer than that, hence the divorce).


Phil Taylor, Drummer for Motorhead, Has Died

TMZ reports that Phil Taylor, the original drummer for the band Motörhead, has passed away at the age of 61. Taylor had been ill for some time. Taylor's last appearance with Motörhead was a year ago in Birmingham, England.


Giada Has A New (Married) Boyfriend

Show of hands - anyone here surprised that Giada De Laurentiis' new boyfriend is married? Anyone? Yep, that's what I thought. Us Weekly reports that Giada is dating Shane Farley, a former executive producer on the Rachel Ray show. Ah, now it all makes sense. Since Rachel Ray is allegedly the one who dubbed Giada the Blow Job Queen, of course one of her producers would overhear that and want to see if she lived up to her name. As for his wife, Farley is still married to personal trainer Jennifer Giamo, although the two filed for divorce in March. Giada's husband filed for divorce back in December 2014.


James Van Der Beek Going To Be A Dad Again

Actor James Van Der Beek and wife Kimberly are expecting their fourth child together, reports People. The couple are already parents to son Joshua, 3, and daughters Annabel, 2, and Olivia, 3.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Cheating On Scruffy

This over-30 actress most recently starred in an American television series that is no longer in production. However, the subject of this blind is her busy personal life!

She was in a long-time relationship with an actor who is known for his dark role in a famous film franchise. Since they broke up, she has been dating a quirky, scruffy actor from across the pond who has more than thirty films to his credit.

Although they have been together for several years, we hear that Actress and Scruffy aren’t doing so well. In fact, she has been getting busy with another man! He is not an actor, and they have not been photographed together in public yet.

Since there has been no announcement of a breakup with Scruffy, we don’t know if this would be considered cheating… or moving on!

Burt Reynolds Shits On Loni Anderson

Burt Reynolds has written a new memoir, But Enough About Me. People recently caught up with Reynolds to ask him about his marriage to Loni Anderson, which he called a mistake. Here's what else he had to say:

"I should have known that you don't marry an actress. That was a really dumb move on my part. She bought everything in triplicate, from every day dresses to jewelry to china and linens. 'I never wear a dress after it has been photographed. I have to dress like a star.' I gave her a platinum American Express card with a $45,000 credit limit. She maxed it out in half an hour." 

On what Loni Anderson will think of his book:
"She'll be surprised it isn't more of a hammer." 


Liv Tyler Talks Body Image

Liv Tyler recently sat down for an interview with Yahoo! Style, where she talked body image. The site quotes her as follows:

“I go through periods where I just want to wear sweatpants and a puffer coat, and I wish I lived in Maine where I grew up and I could just jump in the car and go to school. And then I stop myself and say, wait, you’re so lucky you get to live in New York City and you have beautiful clothes. Pull yourself together...I was in a design meeting and they had all these mood boards, of each thing we want to make. And most of the pictures were looks I’d literally thrown on to walk Milo to school in the morning.

Samples are a size zero — they’re so tiny. I’m 5'10", a giant, and I wear a size 10 shoe. Sometimes I just have to settle for what fits. If you look back at Helena Christensen or Christy Turlington, they were probably a 4 or a 6 — they had beautiful bodies, very lean, obviously, and gorgeous. They obviously took beautiful care of themselves — they weren’t malnourished. The girls walking the catwalk [now] are very, very thin and very tall...I hate to make big statements because people just run with it and take it out of context. The whole industry has changed, it’s hard to comment.”


Shia LaBeouf Operating On Peak Shia LaBeouf

Not in New York City? Not to worry, there is also a livestream of the event; you can watch Shia watch himself here (fair warning: he started this Tuesday at noon, and who knows how long this whole meshugas will take, so the link may be dead by now).

Goop Takes Credit For Breaking The Internet

Gwyneth Paltrow recently sat down at the Fast Company Innovation Festival in NYC on Tuesday, where she had this to say, as reprinted by Us Weekly:

"When I was announcing my husband and I were separating and we were trying to follow this specific way of doing it and the philosophy is conscious uncoupling and we like broke the fucking internet. It's such a hard time personally and then you have this added layer of all this criticism. Then when you look back you go, 'Well, this is actually kind of a good thing to talk back, introducing in some way.' Like, what if you could break up in a way where you remain a family even though you're not a couple? And what would be that effect on your children and your community? Even though we did it in an inelegant way - because it was such an emotional time and we didn't give it as much context and didn't explain [that it] wasn't something that I was inventing - it was already an established theory." 


Brooks Ayers Definitively Caught Lying About Cancer Diagnosis & Other Bravo News

Even if you've never watched an episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, you'll still appreciate this story. Brooks Ayers, the (now ex) boyfriend of Vicki Gunvalson, spent the past season of The Real Housewives of Orange County insisting that he has cancer. Throughout the season, it became apparent to the other Housewives that it was a scam, despite Gunvalson's and Ayers' denials. Gunvalson finally revealed on the reunion that she now things Ayers was lying about having cancer. Ayers is so delusional that he went on E! blasting the Real Housewives for accusing him of faking cancer, and brought along medical records from City of Hope. Despite the fact that E! is home to the Kardashians, they are also a source for news, so they contacted City of Hope for verification, and City of Hope informed E! that Ayers had never been treated for cancer at their hospital.

On Wednesday, Ayers admitted faking the documents, but still has the balls to claim that he has cancer (insert huge eyeroll). Here is his statement, as reprinted by Us Weekly:

"Words cannot express the deep regret that I have in fabricating documents to 'prove' to the world that I, in fact, have cancer. What I did was wrong and inexcusable. I acted alone, without Vicki's knowledge, to produce documents for a reality TV show in hopes of putting doubts about my cancer to rest. I never intended to disclose my actual medical records or details about my private and personal medical history, thus the rationalization of presenting documents that weren't true simply for a 'storyline' for the show. From this day forward, my own personal journey with this disease will remain private as I initially intended over a year ago. My sincerest apologies to my family, friends, loved ones, and those who are battling this horrid disease for any additional pain and/or stress that I have caused. As [University of Louisville basketball coach] Rick Pitino once said, 'Mistakes can be good. They are fertilizer. Everything I've learned about coaching [life], I've learned from making mistakes.' I made a mistake yet I have learned a huge lesson as well."




In other Bravo news, Us Weekly reports that Bravo has announced the inclusion of two new cities to the Real Housewives franchise - Dallas, TX and Potomac, MD (I'm assuming they couldn't continue DC after that Salahi mess).

Jason Priestly Hospitalized After Accident On Set

Page Six reports that actor Jason Priestly was hospitalized after being thrown from a horse on the set of his show The Code. Priestly stayed in the hospital overnight, and was released the next day. Priestly took to Twitter to update fans on his condition:

“Hey guys, thanks for all the kind words… It’s true, I did get thrown off a horse on set… I got my bell rung pretty good,” he wrote. “Because I have a history of concussions, they took me to see a neurologist for an assessment. He advised I take a few days off as I had suffered a concussion… But I am definitely on the mend and looking forward to getting back to work with all the wonderful people on The Code.”


Priestly was previously in a race car crash in 2002, where he fractured his spine.


Melissa George Is A Mom Again

Actress Melissa George has welcomed her second child with boyfriend Jean-David Blanc. Us Weekly reports that son Solal Samuel Glenn Blanc was born on November 3rd in Paris. Solal joins older brother Raphael, 21 months.


Gwen Accuses Gavin Of Cheating With The Nanny

Remember when Gavin Rossdale accused Gwen Stefani of cheating with Blake Shelton while still married to Rossdale? Big mistake, since Gwen allegedly didn't ever let Gavin work due to jealousy, so he's way less famous than her and doesn't sell magazines if he's on the cover. Unluckily for him, Gwen does sell covers, so she's on Us Weekly's peddling a tale of Gavin cheating on her with the nanny. I would believe this a lot more if the nanny was male, just saying. The article says there were naked pics of one of the female nannies discovered on the family ipad by another of the couple's nannies. How many nannies do they have?! Us Weekly has Gavin confessing to Gwen about the affair, so who knows what happened. The whole "sleeping with the nanny" thing is getting so banal.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Sniff Sniff Little Spawn

When this celebrity spawn last went to the hospital, her family quickly came up with a phony surgery excuse, followed by a trip to rehab for “emotional reasons.” All designed to gain your sympathy. All fake. It was drugs and it was an overdose.

The kid continues to make a lot of bad choices. Instead of focusing on her modeling career, she is back to “partying” as usual. Sniff, sniff, Little Spawn! In fact, she is so out of control that we anticipate another “medical emergency” in her future.

We’re not sure if that medical emergency will come from the drugs or from her dealer’s collectors. You see, she’s not very good about paying her dealer in a timely fashion, and those dudes can be bruisingly convincing about getting paid.

Bruce Campbell Did Another Reddit AMA

Bruce Campbell returned to Reddit yesterday for his second Ask Me Anything. Here are some of the highlights:

On what he would do if he actually had a chainsaw for a hand:
"The first thing I would do? Cut a cord of wood 'cause winter's comin'.

Second thing? I'd hire myself out as just, like, a tree trimmer kinda guy. You know - hang with one hand, cut with the other. I'd be pretty good at that eventually...
Edit: Transcriber here. It should be cord, not quart. Thanks! (TIL a cord of wood is a thing.)"

On whether or not he watched B movies as a kid:
"I did not watch B-movies as a kid. I did not watch horror movies as a kid. I did not read horror comics as a kid. I read a comic called Sad Sack which was about a loser, a private in the army, who was mostly peeling potatoes.
Sam Raimi, however, actually read Spider-Man. Those comics, to me, I couldn’t relate to them because I couldn’t really relate to a superhero; which is why I’m hoping people will relate to the character Ash. He has no superpowers. He is not a CIA, FBI, Navy Seal…He’s YOU."

On whether or not it feels different to play Ash now, as opposed to when he first portrayed him:
"Yes, Ash feels very different now, because now I know how to act. The very first Ash, I couldn’t act my way out of a wet paper bag, so I’m actually very glad to go back and fix Ash now like George Lucas fixed his movies.
I’m going to do the same thing. I’m going to go back there and we’re going to create an Ash that can speak in full sentences now, so I’m looking forward to that."

On if he wished he'd been in any movies that he wasn't in:
"I’ll be honest with you. I never play that “What if” game. Mostly fans like to play that “What if” game. Actors are way too practical - Like Marty Scorcese… he’s never going to bust my door down. I’ve made peace with that.
Bobby Deniro, I’m probably never going to work with the guy. I’m down with that. I live in the world of reality, even though I make my living out of fantasy."

On which of his characters is closest to his real personality:
"Hopefully not Ash, because he's kind of a moron. I'll take Brisco, The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. He was the closest I've ever played to actually being a real hero. Like, not that flawed - He was smart and capable, so that would be me on my absolute best day. Ash would be me on my worst day."

On playing Reagan on Fargo:
"Playing Reagan in Fargo was great. My buddy, John Cameron, who produces the show - we’re high school buddies. We go all the way back and my kids grew up in the Reagan era during my formative years, so John and I would imitate him mercilessly because he was a very “imitatible” president. His mannerisms, the way he spoke and everything – and you know, look, every actor wants to do a couple of things in life. Like, I’ve played Elvis. Now I’ve done Ronald Reagan. I’ve played a cowboy.

Those are some of the bucket list things that actors do because they want to play certain iconic roles. The one thing I had to do was take it seriously: a) because it’s Fargo; they win Emmy’s and b) because there would be Ronald Reagan fans that would chase me down and beat me with sticks if I made him look like a jerk, or a moron, or whatever. The trick is to humanize the man."

For the bargain price of $9.99, the clip on bun is "attachable — and, equally importantly, detachable — man bun that lets you blend in with your surroundings, putting it on when you smell Fair-Trade coffee or hear a banjo and taking it off when someone utters the word 'bro.'

Michael Angelakos, Lead Singer of Passion Pit, Comes Out

Us Weekly reports that Michael Angelakos, the lead singer for the band Passion Pit, has come out as gay. He recently revealed the news on Bret Easton Ellis' podcast; Us Weekly quotes Angelakos as follows:

"I've told very few people in my personal small circles because I don't know how to talk about it, you know? When this was all happening recently, finally, I just decided it might be best to talk about it here. I don't really know what happened, but it's just one of those gut feelings. It's the same gut feeling I had when I said, ‘Okay, I kind of just need to talk to people about the fact that I am. I'm gay.’ And that's it. It just has to happen."

On his separation from wife Kristina Mucci:
“I just wanted so badly to be straight, because I love her so much. I think that was one of the most painful things when we decided to separate. When I decided to really deal with it head on, which was, I don't know, in June, she was the one who spearheaded it in a way. She said, 'You need to figure out what's going on with your sexuality because you can't hate yourself anymore.'"

Swimmer Michael Phelps recently sat down for an interview with Sports Illustrated where he opened up about his sobriety. The magazine quotes him as follows:

On his second DUI arrest in September 2014:
“It’s probably the most afraid I’ve ever felt in my life. 

On the 2008 Olympics:
"Mentally, I was over. I didn’t want to do it anymore. I forced myself to do something that I really didn’t want to do anymore. I was in a really dark place, not wanting to be alive anymore. I look back now, I lived in a bubble for a long time. I wound up uncovering a lot of things about myself. . . I saw myself as the athlete that I was, but not as a human being.

On his sobriety:
“Haven’t had a single sip and will not have a sip. I worked, recovered, slept, and took care of myself more than I ever had.”

Gisele Bundchen Talks Tough Times With Tom Brady

Gisele Bundchen recently appeared on CBS This Morning, where she opened up about some of the rough patches that she's gone through with husband Tom Brady. Us Weekly quotes her as follows:

"I think we've been through a few tough times together. I think that's when you know who are your friends and who loves you. My father always said the quality of your life depends on the quality of your relationships, and I think, no matter how challenging it was, we've always been supportive of one another. I think that's the most important thing you can have in life, you know? A support system and love."

On that time Tom Brady knocked up Bridget Moynahan while he was dating Gisele:
"It was a challenging thing because here I am, you know, thinking I'm dating this guy. We met, we started dating, everything is great, and then this happens, so I felt I didn't know what to do. Do I just run away?...He's a very kind man. You know him! He's a good man . . . I would say he's much more competitive than me. I'm much more a collaborative person . . . He's kind of the boss in some way. He has to dictate [what's on the field]."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - He Owes Her

You might be wondering why two celebrities would publicly break up… and then get photographed going out together!

It isn’t because they are back together. It isn’t because they need to maintain a united front for the sake of the children. They do not have any children. They never even married. So, what’s the deal?

She sacrificed years of her career to make sure that he became a big-time actor. He agrees that he owes her. Thus, she will continue to accompany him to events and interact with other industry people to resuscitate her career. Meanwhile, he gets to look like a good guy for maintaining an amicable relationship with his ex.

You should expect this mutually beneficial arrangement to continue until she taps out because she is good on her own or has moved on to a new relationship. Yes, there is an outside chance that they will reconcile, but he treated her so shabbily over the years that it would be too hopeful to include that as a third option right now.

Michael Eisner Hated Jack Sparrow

Johnny Depp recently opened up at AFI Fest about the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie, which he thought he would be fired from. People quotes him as follows:

"They wanted to fire me. I remember it trickled back to me that [former Disney CEO] Michael Eisner went on some sort of vent about how, 'Goddammit, Johnny Depp's ruining the film. What is it? What is that thing? Is it drunk? Is it gay?' So I fully expected to be fired." 

When asked by a studio executive about the character:
"I said, well, didn't you know that all my characters are gay? I was really expecting to be fired. But they wouldn't for some reason. They were actually going to subtitle my character – they couldn't understand Captain Jack."

Seal Talks Yearly Vow Renewals

Seal recently sat down for an interview with Andy Cohen on his Radio Andy show, where he talked about his yearly vow renewals with ex-wife Heidi Klum. Us Weekly quotes him as follows:

“That was my ex-wife’s idea, to be honest. It kind of turned into a little bit of a circus, which I wasn’t terribly fond of because, by default, I’m quite a private person...That’s the thing I disliked most about it. You’re married and you become a team player. You understand that each of you have different lives and you do whatever you can to support your partner’s life. I don’t know how necessary [renewing our vows] was, but it was cool.”
