Blind Gossip Blind Item - Couple Identity

Of course he was cheating on his wife! He has been for years! That’s why this rapper’s marriage now seems to be falling off a cliff.

It won’t be easy for her to walk away, though. Why not? Because she never established an identity for herself apart from him!

He’s got two careers, as a rapper and as an actor. Her music career is long gone, and she’s got nothing else.  She is totally dependent on his fame, and her whole identity now is about being his wife. She was saying, “If I’m not part of [Couple Name], nobody cares about me.”

So, despite her claims that she wants to escape the marriage, she might stay no matter what he does!

Ryan Phillipe Totes Open to Marriage

Ryan Phillipe recently sat down for an interview with People, where he talked about his personal life. Here's what he had to say:

“I’ve faced every manner of gossip, and I don’t take myself as seriously now. There is a freedom and a release that comes with maturity. I’ve made peace with it. We live in a time where being a private person isn’t really an option anymore. [It] affects those in your life who didn’t choose to be a public figure: your children and the people you are in a relationship with. I think that’s when it gets really difficult. Of course [dating] is a challenge. When I’ve been involved with people in my industry in the past, there is a little bit more of an understanding of what to expect, but I feel like when you are with someone who is not in the industry, the focus isn’t there to the same degree.”

On the prospect of marriage:
“I’m open to it. I don’t have a date or any plans set. I haven’t closed any books!”

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Highly Paid Side Job

Another day, another trip to a foreign land for “business.” Have you ever wondered why this woman goes to this one region so often?

The publicized reason for the trip brings in a bit of cash… but, more importantly, serves as the cover for her “side” job.

"She is officially the highest paid call girl in the world. She can literally walk away with up to a million dollars for just a couple of days of work. She has to earn while she can, too, because demand has been falling off as she ages. Some of the men have been making inquiries into her younger sister, which seems to irritate her (not because she is protective of her sister, but because she is competition for her)."

Jason Mewes Steps Behind the Camera

Jason Mewes, the Jay to Kevin Smith's Silent Bob, has directed his first movie called The Madness in the Method. He recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the experience; here's what he had to say:

You've been through some well-publicized rough times. How did you get to the point where you were in a place to direct your first movie?
"As I stay sober each year, I try to be more productive as I put the pieces of my life back together; my family, a place to call my own and over the past 10 years, directing has felt increasingly like a huge piece of that puzzle."

Where did the idea for The Madness in the Method come from?
"I was working on a film in the U.K., and the producer of the film, Dominic Burns, and I hung out a lot. He asked me if there was any role that I wanted to take on that I’d never done before, something that would really excite and challenge me, and I told him I’d love to play a serial killer. Dominic said he’d write something and pitch it to me and sure enough, a few months later he sent over a script. I liked it, but I also had a lot of ideas and thoughts, so we began developing the script together along with another writer, Chris, and the idea built and built from there."

What's the meaning of the title?
"The film is set in an alternate universe where Kevin [Smith] gives me some advice to try taking on "method" acting in order to help me to be taken seriously as an actor with real range in Hollywood. Problem is that the process slowly begins to send me mad as I take to method acting a little too well! Hence, Madness in the Method…."

Kevin Smith is also starring. Will he speak?
"Kevin does speak; in fact, he really has delivered a breathtaking performance. There was one scene in particular between Kevin and I that really goes into our past, and it all gets very deep. It was genuinely emotional and we even had crewmembers in tears. I wasn’t sure what directing Kevin would be like, because of course it’s been the other way around for so many years. But Kevin was wonderful, extremely responsive and as always, he brought his incredible sense of humor. He threw in some genius lines that I loved and will definitely make the movie."

You've been playing versions of yourself onscreen since Clerks. How will the Jason Mewes of The Madness in the Method be different? Will it be a sober or stoned version of Jason Mewes?
"You’ll certainly see a sober Jason Mewes that you’re familiar with to a point, but juxtapositionally there’s definitely a lot that you haven’t seen. This role is pushing me to my limits, I’m not shying away from anything in the film, and that was very much the idea Dom and I had right from the start. We have a lot of fun in the film, but we’re not afraid to get a little dark, and there are genuine moments of real darkness that I don’t think you’re going to see coming."

Goop Doesn't Care If You Think She's Weird

That's the title of Gwyneth Paltrow's February InStyle cover story. Here are some of the highlights:

ON HER DECISION TO START GOOP AND BECOME AN ENTREPRENEUR

“I’ll think, ‘Oh my god, I used to have a life of a spoiled movie star… What the fuck? Why did I do this to myself?’”

ON WHY SHE WANTED TO RELEASE HER NEW CLEAN BEAUTY BOOK

“I mean, it’s shocking to me that the government doesn’t regulate this stuff… How many of my friends have had fertility issues? How many of my daughter’s friends have had precocious puberty? Well, maybe that’s because we are putting endocrine-disrupting hormones in everything.”

ON BEING A PIONEER OF ESOTERIC HEALTH TREATMENTS

“I’ve learned how the cycle works… It used to be that I would talk about something or write about it, and people would be like, ‘What the f— is she talking about? She’s a witch!’ And then later on it would sort of catch on. So now I just recognize it: OK, I’m going to talk about this, and people will think it’s weird, and that’s how it goes.”

ON NOT CARING WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF HER AS SHE AGES

“When I turned 40, I felt like I got this free software upgrade that I wasn’t expecting. It just happened. Suddenly I was like, ‘Oh, this is fantastic: I don’t care! I like myself, and I’m just going to live my life. I’m going to stop worrying and tearing myself down.'"

ON PUSHING THE NEEDLE ON WELLNESS ISSUES

"I’m like, this is my role. I’m here to do this. A friend told me if you’re a trailblazer, you’re the first one through, and you get the cuts because you’re hacking the path.”

Found this old picture of my mother and I taking Carrie out in NY. Just want to mention because I forgot to say earlier that regarding the trials and tribulations of being a son or daughter of celebrities, no one helped or inspired me more than Carrie Fisher. She was a super nova of talent and good character. She made the impossible seem effortless--of course thinking twice as fast as everyone else didn't hurt. One of my favorite things she used to say is, 'Resentment is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die.' Carrie and I even wrote a song or two together. I'm going to find them and put them out if it makes sense. I'm still shattered, can't think clearly. I'll just say please send all your love and light energy to Billie and Debbie, for they are suffering the most. I know what it's like to have your world torn apart by a loved one taken before their time. It never gets easy, although one learns to live through the pain. Please let's just get to 2017 without losing anymore geniuses.

Kate Beckinsale Works Out

Kate Beckinsale is on the cover of Shape's January/February cover. Here's what she had to say:

“I start out absolutely dreading it, do an incredibly punishing workout, bitch about it the whole time, and end up feeling 100 percent better when I leave. Working out is basically nature’s antidepressant...I work out hard with Gunnar [Peterson] five or six times a week. We have loads in common, like our kids. During our sessions we have long talks about teenagers, and then suddenly one day I find that my ass is in a lot better shape than I thought it was!”

On sweating:
"I love yoga, and that’s all I used to do. But hardcore workouts have really made a big difference in my life. I have a lot of internal energy, and intense exercise helps me channel that energy. I find balance by doing a workout that makes me pour sweat. I never was that girl before, but I am now."

On eating the right foods:
"I was a vegetarian for a really long time because I am incredibly squeamish about meat. But when I was filming Pearl Harbor, I didn’t have enough energy, and the trainer I was working with at the time said ‘You’ve got to start eating chicken and fish.’ So I did, and that helped me. Lily and I eat clean—we have a lot of sautéed vegetables like brussels sprouts and broccoli and chicken and fish. Also, I don’t drink alcohol. I feel [its effects] very quickly, so I’ve never actually had an entire glass of anything alcoholic."

On morning exercise:
“I basically wake up, eat breakfast, and then work out. I prefer to get it done in the morning. That said, I don’t naturally get up early. It would be much better for me if the entire world went to bed at 4 a.m. and woke up at noon. But it doesn’t, so I’m usually staggering around first thing."

Hilaria Baldwin Keeps Alec Baldwin Young

Hilaria Baldwin, 32, has written a book titled The Living Clearly Method. Here's what she had to say about husband Alec Baldwin, 58, as reprinted by People:

“His cup was close to the brim. His cup was so full that his body couldn’t metabolize even a bite or two of sugar without causing insulin disruption, and this was leading him dangerously close to a chronic disease.

After years of eating out, eating late, and eating too much, he’d fallen into some bad habits without realizing it. His sugar intake was far too high, not just due to sweet foods and white carbs, but to pasta, sauces with hidden sugars, and snacks. I quietly watched what he ate, only mentally jotting down my secret wish list of what I’d tell him if he asked...[A visit to the doctor revealed that Alec's blood sugar was] at pre-diabetic levels.

This was an alarming wake-up call that rocked him to the core...This was a moment for drastically putting order where disorder had taken over; his body chemistry couldn’t rebalance until the aggravating foods and drinks were removed. This episode completely changed his relationship to eating. By hitting a crisis point, he gained a new perspective on some of the unhelpful habits that became his normal without realizing it.”

A tale as old as time. Boy meets girl on TV show, boy marries girl, TV show gets cancelled, girl goes on to be wildly successful while boy's career languishes, girl leaves boy. TMZ reports that Supergirl star Melissa Benoist, 28, has filed for divorce from her Glee co-star husband Blake Jenner, 24, after four years of marriage. Benoist is asking the court to deny spousal support because she makes a shit-ton more money than he does, and wants to return to he maiden name (she became a Jenner legally, not professionally). The couple do not have any children.

TI and Tiny Divorcing

'Tis the season to divorce! First up, we have rapper TI (Clifford Joseph Harris Jr), 36, and his wife Tiny (Tameka Cottle), 41. E! News reports that Tiny has filed for divorce from TI. They were married for six years, and have three children together: King Harris, Major Harris, and Heiress Harris. Tiny has an older daughter from a previous relationship, and TI had three children from previous relationships. A sources says, "arguments and disagreements over some issues led them to split."

Carrie Fisher Has Passed Away

Carrie Fisher has passed away at the age of 60. She drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra. She was a successful actress, screenwriter, script doctor, author, producer, and humorist. She was also a mental health advocate, who worked very hard to try to remove the stigma around talking about mental health. And of course, she played a central role in the Star Wars universe as Princess Leia, as she famously said, "I am Princess Leia, no matter what. Princess Leia will be on my tombstone." She is one with the Force, the Force is with her.

Carrie Fisher is survived by daughter Billie Lourd, mother Debbie Reynolds, brother Todd Fisher, half-sisters Joely Fisher and Tricia Leigh Fisher, and her beloved French bulldog Gary. Her New York Times obituary is pretty Star Wars-centric; her Hollywood Reporter one takes a broader view.

Andre Leon Talley Tries To Avoid Politics

Former Vogue Editor-at-large AndrΓ© Leon Talley recently sat down for an interview with The New York Times, where he talked about getting dragged into political discussions. Here's what he had to say:

On trying to avoid politics:
“You make the choice to be in Trumpland or you make the choice to eject yourself from the horror of Trumpland. I’ve made my choice not to be part of Trumpland.”

On Melania:
“She’s a nice person. I do not endorse Trumpism on any level. So why can’t one be positive and want her to shine? I mean, it’s good she cares about napkins, crystal, dinner plates with gilded edges to the point of over the top, and abundant flower arrangements. In the end, why pick on her when they should be picking on her husband’s billionaire cabinet and his seeming readiness to turn the country back towards oppression, anti-Semitism, anti-culturalism, etc.”

On the backlash he received after saying something nice about Melania:
“I’m not a big person in the world. I’m maybe a big figure in the fashion world. I mean, sort of iconic. But I don’t want to get phone calls in the middle of the night, telling me I’ve gone over to Trumpland and I’m going to Darth Vader because I said nice things about Melania. I voted for Hillary Clinton. I registered in North Carolina because it mattered. I went through hoops of fire to get my absentee ballot. And, quite frankly, I thought she would have brought back the pantsuit. I thought the gray trouser suit designed by Ralph Lauren she wore with the purple satin shell and the lapels matching the blouse was brilliant. The elegant anthracite gray dry wool actually was slimming.


Melania, who opted at 3 a.m. for a palazzo jumpsuit, with one arm exposed and a flounce over the other — it seemed to me too Mar-a-Lago, a huge, full-volume jumpsuit. Trying too hard. And I am so tired of the long hair falling on both sides of her face. She has to upgrade her coiffure.”

On the president-elect:
“He became the master of darkness, the master of the dark empire, as he became more powerful, as he started with birtherism and in the campaign. Birtherism is terrible. It was a terrible thing he did to Obama. And he never let go. ‘Make America great again.’ A lot of people think that means make America white again.

People are really afraid of these dark, dark institutions of bigotry and anti-Semitism that have come out from under the rocks like creepy snakes and come up to rear their heads up like cobras. People seem to have put all their egregious things on the back burner. Melania plagiarized Michelle Obama’s speech. Let’s just wait and see what happens on Jan. 20. I don’t want Trump to fail, and I don’t want Melania Trump to fail. But I’m not going to sit here and say any more positive things, because I’d get crucified from personal friends.”

On racism:
“Did the Congress ever treat Obama as a president? Did they plot in a restaurant the night he was inaugurated to filibuster everything for eight years? This country has elected a president who is on audiotape saying I’m a star and I can do whatever I want with women, grab them in the vagina. Dignity has gone out the door. He’s causing me much ire. He just said, ‘My cabinet has the highest I.Q.’ His cabinet of mostly white men. That’s a dog whistle.”

On Kanye's visit:
“Listen to me. There is a lot of marzipan here. Marzipan is the glaze you put on a cake, a superficial glazed layer. It’s all marzipan, it’s all optics.”

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Fake Rich Versus Real Rich

The cast members of this ensemble cable show are at odds with each other. There is a new cast member who is rich. Not fake rich. But REAL rich.

Why is this a problem? Cast members generally pay their own way when they have parties or take trips. Several of the women on the show – who are not nearly as rich as they pretend to be – are worried that she is going to suggest doing something that is not affordable for them. Then they are going to have to either suck it up and pay up… or miss important on-camera time while other cast members go without them!

"They were saying, “What if she want to go skiing in Gstaad? What if she wants to do a spur-of-the-moment shopping trip to Paris? How is this going to make me look?”"

E! News reports that Country star Kacey Musgraves, 28, is engaged to longtime love Ruston Kelly. Musgraves had this to say of the proposal: 

"We had just been at my parents' house randomly having a night of watching bittersweet old home tapes of all these beautiful family memories that were made in this little, old country house I grew up in that I now have. 

We came back to that house afterwards and he had somehow pulled off having my sister + brother-in-law completely decorate my childhood bedroom in the most nostalgic and perfect Christmas decorations. I was bewildered and confused when I saw it all and turned around…and he was on his knee with a baby pink velvet ring box and the sparkliest ring I've ever seen!

It was so special. Of all the places in the world I've gotten to see, nowhere could mean more than this happening in tiny Golden, Texas in the house that completely made me who I am."
