Tiger Woods Talks Elin Nordegren

Tiger Woods recently sat down for an interview with Time, where he talked about his current relationship with ex-wife Elin Nordegren. The magazine quotes him as follows:


"It's not how I would change 2009 and how it all came about. It would be having a more open, honest relationship with my ex-wife. Having the relationship that I have now with her is fantastic. She’s one of my best friends. We’re able to pick up the phone, and we talk to each other all the time. We both know that the most important things in our lives are our kids. I wish I would have known that back then."


On why their marriage ended:
"When it comes down to it, right down to it, it’s just having a more open, honest relationship with my ex-wife when we were married. Our frustrations would have come out if we had talked about it and been open and honest with each other. Which we are now, and it’s absolutely fantastic...It was too tough, too tough. We try and help each other out on all occasions. And we work through it with the kids, the parenting program. She is one of my best friends now, and it’s all because of my kids. We’ve worked so hard, and I’ve shown her how much I love them. We’ve worked so hard at co-parenting, to make sure that their lives are fantastic."

On what he tells their kids:
"For instance, I’ve told her this, I’ve taken the initiative with the kids, and told them up front, 'Guys, the reason why we’re not in the same house, why we don’t live under the same roof, Mommy and Daddy, is because Daddy made some mistakes.' I just want them to understand before they get to Internet age and they log on to something or have their friends tell them something. I want it to come from me so that when they come of age, I’ll just tell them the real story. But meanwhile, it’s just, 'Hey, Daddy made some mistakes. But it’s okay. We’re all human. We all make mistakes. But look what happened at the end of it. Look at how great you are. You have two loving parents that love you no matter what.' I said, 'You have no idea how lucky you guys are, to have two parents that love you so much. Unfortunately, we’re not in the same house, but the flip side is we love you no matter what you do. And I’m a parent, as the dad, who is always going to try to help you, guide you through life.'"

Ladies of London's Marissa Hermer Is Pregnant

E! reports that Ladies of London star Marissa Hermer and husband Matt Hermer are expecting their third child together. Hermer released the following statement: "Matt and I are so fortunate to already have two children, Max and Jake, and are incredibly excited to announce baby number 3. Without going into too much detail, we've been unlucky a few times and in the early stages of this pregnancy, it looks like it was going in the same direction... but now all clear and looks good! We've been really lucky to have the support of our family and friends and can't wait to meet the newest addition to our family. It's the best Christmas present we could have asked for."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Most Clueless

We have some insight as to what’s going on behind the scenes of this failing entertainment company headed up by a music celebrity!

What. A. Fucking. Asshole. [This celebrity] is undoubtedly THE most clueless executive I’ve ever met.

The CEO’s job is to set the strategy, but [the celebrity] kept jumping in to tell him everything that he are doing and thinking is wrong and that he needs to do things his way. Then they quit, of course, because who can do a job if you are constantly being told that you are doing your job wrong? That’s why it’s impossible to work for him. Big ego. No common sense. Thinks he know everything about everything and that he’s always right and you’re always wrong.

They should change the name of the company to Clueless. I’m almost looking forward to the day when this whole thing goes down.

(The hack has form in getting stories this way – having been linked previously to a bit of extra-curricular fun with a Spice Girl and her husband).

Lady Gaga Talks Reinvention

Lady Gaga recently sat down for an profile with Billboard Magazine, that was reprinted by the Hollywood Reporter. Here are some of the highlights:

On working with Tony Bennett:
“There is nobody more badass than Tony Bennett. That man is a part of the history of music in a way that is extremely powerful, and he taught me to stay true to who I am, to not let anybody exploit me. He is responsible in so many ways for making me happy, and I can say the same for Elton [John]. When the whole industry turned their back on me during Artpop, they were the ones who said, ‘Hey, this is a blip. It’s going to go away.’ On tour, I had people give me war medals and memorabilia just to thank me for exposing a younger generation to Tony Bennett because he changed their lives in such significant ways. I want to be a part of curating a culture where we don’t give credence to anyone who is rude or crass or not good for the world.

“After Cheek to Cheek, everybody was like, ‘Oh, you’re Rod Stewart now.’ I love Rod Stewart, but I would also argue that I’m not doing an adult contemporary jazz album later in my career and I’m not just doing it because I like standards. I am an Italian-American girl from New York who won state jazz competitions in high school for my abilities. I was born to sing with Tony and for him to be like, ‘Yes, you were.’ And so was Ella [Fitzgerald] and so was Judy [Garland] -- we could go on and on listing the amazing women he sang with. It’s a party I’m thrilled to be invited to.”

On working with Ryan Murphy on American Horror Story:
“I’m not the type of girl who fits most molds. That’s why working on American Horror Story with Ryan [Murphy] is a destiny. I wanted to create something extremely meaningful by exploring the art of darkness. The reason I love watching horror films, mysteries and documentaries about crime is that it somehow numbs me from the pain I experience in my own life. You are watching something worse than whatever you think you’re going through. The terror of that suspends you, and you are able to forget about your own pain for a moment. It’s like a safe, psychological form of masochism.

“Ryan and I have both experienced the same sort of criticism over the intention of our work. My whole career has been built on this perception that I’m trying to evoke attention because of the things I’m interested in, when it’s not that way at all. If you don’t like to be disturbed, [American Horror Story] probably isn’t for you. If you don’t like absurdity, I’m probably not for you. I hung upside down for 45 minutes for [video artist] Robert Wilson and drained all the blood in my body, and I’ve stood in a freezing cold river naked for two hours with magnets on my head for Marina Abramovic. I’m a hard-core chick. I go there. I can put all my rage into that dark art, and then the rest of my life can be spent clearheaded, doing the things I know to be right, like philanthropy and sticking to my guns musically.”

Game of Thrones Season 6: Tease (HBO)

Amy Poehler Receives Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

E! News reports that Amy Poehler got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday. They quote her speech as follows:


"I've been told I'm in-between Roseanne Barr and Sally Field, which also describes my career in a way, if I play my cards right. I wanna share a story with you from this morning. I woke up and I felt so excited to be here with my friends and family and I had tea with my family and I received a text from Carol Burnett, which was really exciting and I'm front-door bragging about that, she did text me this morning. We're friends. I have her number. And she said, ‘Best of luck on getting your star.' Then I went to the gas station and as I was pumping my gas, I left my wallet on the roof of my car, and I drove away, and I thought I had lost my wallet forever, but it was returned to me just an hour ago from a charming, slim gentleman who works at Ford models, who goes by the name of Dilly. And I tell you this story to remind us that people can be good, that no one can do it alone, and I still pump my own gas.

Growing up as a daughter of two public school teachers, I knew very little about Hollywood or Los Angeles and I'd never seen the Walk of Fame. I had no brush with greatness. I knew no one that was an actor or writer. I never imagined I would be here, truly. It's a genuine honor."

To sons Abel and Archie:
"Thanks for coming to this weird thing, and thank you for understanding all the time when I have to go to work. I really appreciate it. You guys are awesome guys. Thank you for filling me with love and laughter every day."


Pamela Anderson To Be Final Playmate

Damn, I knew I should have put money on it! People announces that Pamela Anderson's will be Playboy's final nude playmate, covering the January/February 2016 issue. Of the honor, Anderson stated:


"I got a call from [Hugh Hefner's] attorney who said, 'We don't want anybody else. There's nobody else, could you do the last cover of Playboy?' I had a rough few years where I felt a little insecure, 'cause you know everyone's getting older. I thought, 'My gosh, I miss the Playboy days.' It was so glamorous, it was so chivalrous, there's so many people there that were so smart, and activism, and art. You know, I just kind of miss that whole crowd and us being these little giggling girls kind of running around the mansion half naked and trying to get everybody's attention."

On telling son Brandon, 19:
"I said, 'Hef just called, he wants me to do the last cover of Playboy,' and he goes, 'Mom you've got to do it. We're older, we're not embarrassed anymore of you. You know, we think you're great.' "

Dita Von Teese Schools Corseting Wannabes

Dita Von Teese recently sat down for an interview with the Huffington Post to talk about the celebrity trend of waist training. The site quotes her as follows:

"The people who actually know a lot about corsetry are not the ones who are publicly speaking about it. And I’m seeing some of the corsets they’re saying are waist shapers and I’m thinking, ‘That doesn’t work.' It seems to be a fast fix. And it is! If you put on a corset and pull the strings tight, you instantly have this silhouette. And it’s great, but it’s not going to modify your body if you’re not engaged in a serious [regimen] of it.”

James Cromwell Is A Badass

Actor and Activist James Cromwell, 75, was recently booted from an upstate New York awards ceremony for protesting a power plant by heckling the organizers. CPV Energy plans to build a Power Plant near the Hudson River Valley. People quotes him as follows:


"I knew that we wouldn't change any hearts or minds by doing this. I'm not a scientist, I'm merely a concerned citizen. I'm concerned about this community and concerned about maintaining the quality of life for everyone here and not just for those people who make a profit out of ripping things out of the ground. This plant sits on a site which had endangered species, has historical relevance, was a wetland, is in a seismic zone – in other words, you couldn't have found a place to put this plant that was worse in every environmental and societal standard. We needed publicity for people to know that we shouldn't go gently into this goodnight, that we must find out what this means to this community, what it means to the state of New York, and what it means to the world as a whole. This fracked gas is not a transition fuel from coal and oil to whatever renewables. Renewables would be ready now if we would commit the same kind of resources and government support and awareness that we bring to fossil fuels."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Not Exactly Model Behavior

This model is horrified that something negative she said about a client became public.

Yes, it’s true that she said it, but she never thought it would get out there. She knows that she blew it. You’re supposed to keep your mouth shut, finish the gig, get paid. That’s it. You NEVER make the client or their product look bad!   If you have a problem, you ask your agent not to book you with them anymore. You don’t go around mouthing off about the client.

How is she going to fix this?

Watch her do a bunch of informal P.R. in the next few weeks to try to make people forget about it. She normally hates the paps, but for the near future they are on speed dial.

Jaden Smith To Form Own Religion

Here's something even L. Ron Hubbard couldn't have predicted - Jaden Smith is about to out-Scientology Scientology! One of his followers recently had this to say to Us Weekly:

“Jaden sees himself as a modern-day prophet and is working on a collection of essays. They’re new takes on string theory and chaos theory, but more mystical. Jaden thinks he has spiritual ties to people in other dimensions and galaxies, and they are helping him write. He hopes to have a spiritual following when he releases these.”

Let's help him name his new religion. Any suggestions?


Ryan Reynolds Talks Keeping Private Life Private

Ryan Reynolds recently sat down for an interview with The Project, where he talked about keeping his private life private. Us Weekly quotes him as follows:

"I think it's always a fine line. I've never been the guy stumbling out of bars at three in the morning, at least that anyone is aware of. It's never been my thing. I think it's keeping a boundary that there's this world that is the job and the world that is the home. We don't live in L.A. We live on a farm in New York. And we don't lead a wild and crazy life. It's not that hard. It's not a big deal."


Lainey Gossip Blind Item - Who's Having Unsafe Sex?

Yes, this is a rehash of yesterday's Blind Gossip herpes blind. But Lainey has a slightly different take. Here's what she has to say:


The Detroit Free Press published a fascinating report yesterday. (Thanks Sarah!) I’m quoting:

An anonymously filed lawsuit involving a much-talked-about disease has surfaced in federal court in Detroit, where an unnamed woman is suing an unnamed celebrity from California for allegedly giving her genital herpes while having sex with her multiple times in Royal Oak last summer.

Why the secrecy?

"This complaint is brought anonymously due to the social stigma attached to the damages as well as the celebrity of the defendant," according to the lawsuit, which seeks at least $75,000 in damages.
The lawsuit does not say whether the celebrity is an actor, musician, athlete or politician — only that he is a citizen of California, and that he had a residence of some sort in Royal Oak in July.

The plaintiff, who is a Michigan resident but currently is in New York, claims the unnamed celebrity has permanently scarred her physically, emotionally and psychologically by failing to warn her that he was infected with genital herpes, and "by failing to altogether avoid sexual contact" with her. Her lawsuit also alleges that the defendant "knew or should have known" that he was infected with Herpes Simplex Virus 2.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff had repeated sexual encounters with the defendant in July, primarily at his residence in Royal Oak, and "did not and has not had any sexual relations with anyone other than" him since then.

In addition to sports events, there were a few productions happening this past summer in Detroit. There was a MAJOR production doing reshoots in Detroit. You should know it without me naming it. An epic battle? Sound familiar? Most locals are immediately picking up on that one and not really considering the non-film and tv options.

And two obvious names from that project come to mind. And one more obvious than the other. Because he had a summer full of scandal. So it makes sense why some would think he'd have yet another scandal added to his 2015 scandal list.

Thing is though, the herpes rumours? The OTHER name is the one who's been rumoured to have herpes. He has a new young girlfriend. And when they first hooked up, he apparently disclosed it to her. (It’s a blind within a blind!) Then again, he's not a resident of California.

Or you know what?


It's very, very possible though that it's neither of them. That they have nothing to do with it. That it's not an actor celebrity but an athlete celebrity?

Diane Keaton Talks Woody Allen

Diane Keaton recently sat down for an interview with AARP, where she talked about Woody Allen. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"He gave me everything. It was a privilege to be in those films with him. I've never seen anybody more disciplined. For him, work is an art form. Work really is the answer to so many problems, and it's a form of play, too, that you take very seriously and keep trying to expand. That's something I learned from Woody." 

On how losing her mother changed her:
"When I think about my life now, I try to be in the moment, cherish people I love and not be in pursuit of some abstract concept. In a way, this is the most interesting time. At this age, everything seems much more astonishing. Like, 'Oh my goodness, look at that sycamore tree! Why didn't I see that before?' There's a magical aspect, a wonder to being on this planet." 

Celebrity Real Estate - Tyga Edition

Rapper Tyga has scraped up enough funds to rent a house in the Hollywood Hills. The home was recently on the market for $6.295 million, but the listing got taken off market due to the rental, which is costing Tyga over $17,000/mo. And what does he get for that money? A 5,878 square foot home featuring six bedrooms, four full bathrooms plus one additional shitter, an elevator, views, and a front door guarded by a Predator. What more can you ask for? See pictures of the property at Curbed.

Adam Driver Doesn't Like To Watch Himself On Screen

Girls and now Star Wars actor Adam Driver recently appeared on the Howard Stern Show, where he talked about watching himself onscreen. People quotes him as follows:

On not wanting to watch himself onscreen:
"Because I saw all the mistakes. The things that I wished I could change, but I couldn't because it's permanent. Plus, I came from a theater background where you don't get to see it. And that's fine, like I know how it feels I guess, so I wasn't so interested in how it looked. I'd want to make it better looking or perfect, and that's a trap." 

On breaking that rule to watch Star Wars:
"Because we did so much work on it ... It seemed like I should just try getting over it. And it's Star Wars. I can't literally believe that I was in it."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Actor Gave Her The Herp

A famous actor from California is about to have a very unpleasant run-in with the justice system. A woman is filing a lawsuit against him for giving her herpes!

The two met when the actor was living in Michigan while filming an upcoming blockbuster. He rented a house in a suburb of Detroit, and the woman claims that they had a series of encounters there that led to her contracting Herpes Simplex Virus 2. She claims that he was the only man with whom she had relations at that time, and that she has not been intimate with anyone else since.

You don’t have to be a superhero to figure out which film we’re talking about.

Needless to say, the actor will not want this lawsuit to be a topic of discussion on the red carpet when the film is released in early 2016.

Kardashian Korner

Kylie Jenner is on the cover of Interview Magazine. In addition to the very klassy photo spread, here are her thoughts on some things:

On money:
"I really don't find happiness within materialistic things. Like, it's cool if I can buy myself a new car, and I think it's amazing for a week, but then the thrill is over and I'm like, 'Oh, so I guess that wasn't really happiness.'"

On Instagram:
"I'm not myself on Snapchat or Instagram. That's totally not me. I'm way flashier on Instagram and Snapchat, because I feel like that's what people want to see and that's I've always done, so I'm not going to stop. People want to see my cars and my purses. People love fashion. But that's so not me."

On makeup:
"I honestly hate wearing makeup. Lately, I've just been so over it. I feel like I'm way too young to wear such heavy makeup all the time. It's just bad for your skin, but I'm always doing photo shoots or red carpets and events, so I obviously want to look good."

On humor:
"I feel like, as I get older, I don't laugh really hard, to the point where you cry. You just don't find things as funny."

On fear:
"My worst fear is waking up and finding something bad about me on the internet."

On being #blessed:
"I feel like I'm going to look back and be like, 'Damn I wish I could've just been a kid and done normal teenage stuff that my friends get to do. But it also is a blessing, and I've done so many things that most 35-year-old women still haven't done…Like yesterday, I realized that I'm 18, I'm a female, and I have accomplished so much, I live in a beautiful home and I work really hard, so I'm just grateful."

Miranda Lambert Takes The High Road

Miranda Lambert recently sat down for an interview with Cosmopolitan, where she talked about her divorce from Blake Shelton. The magazine quotes her as follows:

On whether her views on marriage changed: "We were together for 10 years, married for four, were very quickly divorced, and are friends. I'm still processing everything and figuring out where to go and what happened. [Marriage is] a tough business, and we gave it our best college try … If I ever were to get married again — which is completely not on my radar at all right now — I feel like it's not about it being a step in life. It's not about a piece of paper or a diamond. It's the way you feel about somebody and the commitment in your heart."

On living a life full of everything: "I just want to live a life full of everything. Some of that might mean nights on my porch crying, drinking whiskey, and going, 'Man this sucks right now.' I don't necessarily want to know that I have really bad, long, lonely nights ahead of me, but I have had some, and I still have a bunch ahead of me. But it's about living in the moment and feeling every tinge of pain, then waking up the next day and going, 'All right, I'm going to ride my ponies. I'm going to have a girls' night.' That's where I am. That's where I'm gonna live."


Sandra Bullock Adopts Again

I can tell you absolutely, the exact right children came to me at the exact right time.”

Holland Taylor Dating Sarah Paulson

Holland Taylor, 72, recently sat down for an interview with WNYC's Death, Sex & Money, where she talked about finding love with a younger woman. She is quoted as follows:

“It’s the most wonderful, extraordinary thing that could have ever possibly happened in my life." People magazine has since confirmed that the younger woman in question is none other than American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson, 40.

On the notion of coming out:
“I haven’t come out because I am out. I live out.”

On the possibility of marriage:
“Given my generation it would not be something that would automatically occur to me. But as a symbol, as a pledge, as a plight one’s troth, it would be a wonderful thing to do.”

Why Channing Tatum Hates Alex Pettyfer

Remember during the filming of Magic Mike there were all those rumours about Channing Tatum hating costar Alex Pettyfer? Turns out they are true! Pettyfer recently appeared on Brett Easton Ellis's podcast, where he confirmed the rumours himself. People quotes him as follows:

"It's true. Because Channing Tatum does not like me – and for many reasons [and] many being my own fault. [Tatum] was not sold on me being a part of this film because he looked upon me as being a risk...I didn't speak on the movie. I was scared to speak. I actually did my work and I sat in the corner and listened to music because I had been told that anything I do is wrong by my reps. I was very insecure as a human being and that also gave me a bad rep because they said, 'Oh Alex thinks he's fucking better than everyone else because he doesn't speak to anyone,' and that's not true. I was just genuinely nervous and scared to be myself. I was in character." 

Pettyfer went on to rent an apartment from a friend of Tatum's, and didn't pay any rent:
"They asked for the four months rent, which in hand I should have paid there and then. What happened was my cousin passed away, his lungs collapsed and he died ... and I was devastated and dealing with family drama and forgot about the situation which was the apartment. And I all the sudden got a very negative email from Channing, rightfully so, saying 'Don't fuck my friends. You owe money. Pay the fucking money. Don't be a clown.' I really took that the wrong way, which I shouldn't have, and emailed him back and said 'Listen I'm in a really negative situation, negative head-space could you respect me for a moment and blah blah blah.' And then I just got hounded through this time of grieving for money, and by the end of it I just basically said 'Fuck them. What is money when life is so much more. I'm not dealing with this and I'm not paying. And I should have just paid." 



Yolanda and David Foster Split

Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Yolanda Foster and husband David Foster are splitting after four years of marriage. The couple released the following statement to People: "Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways. We've shared nine beautiful and joyous years together. During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues." This was Yolanda's second marriage, and David's fourth. If giving your husband a book full of naked pictures of yourself for your anniversary doesn't keep a marriage together, I don't know what will!



For what it's worth, Ace over at Blind Gossip considers this a blind item that's solved.

Mark Zuckerberg Is a Dad

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla have welcomed their first child together. Mark posted the following message on his Facebook Page:

"Priscilla and I are so happy to welcome our daughter Max into this world!

For her birth, we wrote a letter to her about the world we hope she grows up in.

It's a world where our generation can advance human potential and promote equality -- by curing disease, personalizing learning, harnessing clean energy, connecting people, building strong communities, reducing poverty, providing equal rights and spreading understanding across nations.

We are committed to doing our small part to help create this world for all children. We will give 99% of our Facebook shares -- currently about $45 billion -- during our lives to join many others in improving this world for the next generation.

Thank you to everyone in this community for all your love and support during the pregnancy. You've given us hope that together we can build this world for Max and all children."

And as for donating their Facebook stock, that's not just an empty promise; TMZ reports that the couple have informed the SEC of their intent.


Courteney Cox Is Back On The Market

Page Six reports that Courteney Cox, 51, and fiance Johnny McDaid, 39, have called off their engagement. The couple had been together for two years. McDaid reportedly moved out just before Thanksgiving and went home to England. A source tells Page Six, “He’s actually the one who instigated the breakup. Johnny feels she’s a little too close for comfort with her male co-stars. He doesn’t like the fact that she’s close to them, that she stays in touch with them [because] she has this past of falling in love with people she works with. He feels very uncomfortable...She has an aversion to [McDaid smoking cigarettes]. She feels like it’s a bad image, she doesn’t like the smell of it. They constantly fight about it. He started vaping, she doesn’t even want him vaping.”

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Covert Selfie

There are many actors who would love to snare the lead in the next chapter of this iconic masculine franchise. While some are publicly expressing their interest in the role and showing off their bodies to demonstrate their preparedness to take on the action role, others are being more… covert.

In fact, one well-known comedic actor has been going behind his agent’s back and has been sending half-naked photos of himself directly to the (presumed) producers! A person who saw the pics said:

I let out a little gasp when I opened up the pics in the email. It was just so weird. It was like he was trying to seduce some girl by sending half-naked selfies of himself to her.

I do have to say, though, that although I don’t normally think of him as being sexy, his physique was more impressive than I expected!

Somebody get that man an audition!
