Blind Gossip Blind Item - Residential Shell Game

This famous musician has a celebrity wife and child/ren. But did you know that they don’t live together? In fact, they never have! However, the constant activity of buying and selling multiple houses over the past few years apparently prevents people from seeing this.

It’s like a little residential shell game. The buying and remodeling and selling helps them look like they are a couple, but he doesn’t really have any intention of living here. Every house they buy is their “dream house” that just needs to be fixed up to be perfect, but that’s just an excuse. I can’t remember the last time they slept under the same roof. When they do, it’s not in the same room.

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Break Out Character

This A-list actress is in the television medium. She’s the break-out character on a huge show. There were some difficulties at the start of filming regarding her salary and perks. After such a fantastic first season, she wanted to renegotiate, which she was not entitled to demand and she certainly wasn’t owed. She signed up for several years and she had to honour the salary she would be getting. Our actress wanted the pay bump so badly that she started missing dates, being late and then – here comes the grand show – feigned illness to skip off a shoot, costing the television show 6 figures and further inconveniencing over a 1000 people.

She got close to the deal she wanted in the end, but at a cost.

Who is she?


What Jennifer Aniston Has For Breakfast

Jennifer Aniston recently sat dow for an interview with Bon Appetit, where she dished about her morning breakfast routine, and other food questions. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"What’s your typical breakfast like?
I’ve got three different ones. Sometimes it’s a smoothie—bananas, cherries, a protein powder of some sort, almonds, cacao powder, and all sorts of other weird antioxidant stuff I can’t remember—with almond milk. Other times I have eggs over-easy—I crack them into a bowl and I’ll add a white or two into that and pour it all into the pan to get more protein sans too much yolk age. I’ll have that with avocado toast sprinkled with olive oil and salt and pepper. The other option is oatmeal with egg whites whipped into it right at the end.

The one food you’re powerless around.
Tortilla chips. Homemade, really good, fluffy-crispy tortilla chips.

What do you dip them in?
Guac. If we’re trying to be good, what’s the point of having chips at all? But I love salsa on everything. I love Mexican food in general.

Do you have a signature recipe?
Pasta is the only one I really, really like to do. The one I make all the time is a lean carbonara. On the pasta, I put eggs, cheese, turkey bacon, and a little sautéed red onion and garlic. It’s simple—no cream, no butter, no oil, no nothing. Sometimes I’ll add a little pasta water if needed.

Tacos or burritos?
I’m gonna go soft taco. A meat-y taco with beans with guac.

Cholula, Tapatío, or another hot sauce of choice?
No hot sauce? Is that crazy? If I am going to do one…let me check in the fridge to see which one we have…Cholula.

Tea or coffee?
Coffee. I usually have just one cup a day. That’s it.

Bloody Mary or mimosa?
Definitely Bloody Mary."


Looks Like Lady Gaga Wants an EGOT

Yesterday saw Lady Gaga nominated for an Oscar for her song "Til It Happens To You" from The Hunting Ground. With her six Grammy Awards, and Oscar would put her halfway on the road to an EGOT. Gaga won the Golden Globe for her performance in American Horror Story. That same role will be eligible for Emmy contention later this year; if she wins that as well, all she will need is a Tony. People reports that the current record-holder for collecting all four trophies in the shortest timespan in Robert Lopez, who completed the task in 10 years. Looks like Gaga might be hot on his heels!

Jessica Simpson Talks Kids

E! News recently caught up with Jessica Simpson, and she talked about her kids and new niece Jagger Simpson Ross. E! News quotes her as follows:

On her Christmas gift for Jagger:
"I bought Jagger her first diamond studs for Christmas, so she's swaggin,'" the blond bombshell told E! News on the red carpet. "I got her a black diamond stud and a white diamond stud, so we're good. She'll always know that I gave her her first diamonds."

On whether or not her kids Ace, 2, and Maxwell, 3, are into fashion:
"My kids have more fashion sense than I do. My son Ace won't leave home without a fedora. Maxwell judges all of us on our outfits. She tries to pick out everything."

On the prospect of having more children:
"Oh, God! No, no, no, no. No babies for me in the near future. Two is good. I got a girl and a boy." 


Celebrity Real Estate - John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Edition

Do you remember when Rihanna bought a house that flooded so badly that she sued the former owner, inspection firm, engineer, buyer's agent, and several others alleging negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, breach of contract, and anything else she could think of? John Legend and Chrissy Teigen must be feeling lucky, because they just bought the house for $14.1 million. The house has undergone an expensive renovation since then, and is hopefully watertight! The 8,520 square foot home features five bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, a pretty sweet master closet, and a beautiful view. See pictures of the property at Curbed.

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Shyness Mistaken For Coldness

I feel quite protective over this A-list actress because I know many people on her staff and I feel she’s been the victim of ageism, insecurity and various other unnamed targets.

So, I thought today I’d give you a blind item regarding the A-list I like, and later I'll give you blind item regarding another A-list actress who is completely different to her.

The A-list actress I like is extremely kind to people, but her shyness and insecurity is often mistaken for coldness. She recently kept an independent movie she’s working on afloat by missing a precious event in her family’s life. Insurance couldn’t cover her missing a couple of days, so she spoke with her family and they understood. Our actress ultimately saved the movie over 6 figures.

TMZ reports that Carter and a friend showed up at a bar drunk off their asses, and when bartenders refused to serve them, Nick Carter's friend headbutted the bar's manager, and Nick Carter grabbed a bouncer by the throat! Rookie mistake, buddy. You can guess how well that turned out for the two drunk dudes. Police were called, and the pair were arrested for battery. Get back on the wagon, Nick Carter!

The Gossip Life Blind Item - The Hypocrite

This A-list actress who was famously against getting married and having children, is now married and trying for a child.


Who is she?

Kardashian Korner

Khloe Kardashian appeared on the Howard Stern Show the other day; here's what she had to say as reprinted by HowardStern.com:

On finding out that husband Lamar Odom was cheating on her:
"Lamar was so great at making me feel like I was the only one and I'm this princess. I never speculated cheating...Nothing was on his cell phones, [but] he had an assistant. They were all on his assistant's phone, so he was really crafty. All these rumors kept coming out in the weeklies, and as much as I know they're bullshit, where there's smoke there's fire. Something has to be right here. This one girl did this interview and she was so adamant, and when I confronted [Lamar], he blamed another teammate. He was like 'oh that's another teammate's girl, blah blah blah…' This was when he was playing for the Clippers his last season...It is humiliating on any level, but I found out he was cheating on me the majority of our marriage, I just didn't know. I know he loves me; I know we love each other. I know all of that -- I don't question those feelings. I've always asked why. Lamar does...did struggle with substance abuse. I do believe he has a sex addiction, but I also don't know if I believe in a sex addiction that much."

On getting married so quickly:
"I'm sure people would say it's a mistake for me, I wouldn't change what I did because it was also some of the best times of my life ... so for me, I wouldn't say it's a mistake. I would say I needed that experience for me and I never felt better in my life at that time....All of [the Kardashians] were like 'you're fucking nuts.' It was nine days after meeting him we were like 'we're going to get married.' It was just the most intense relationship I've ever had in a great way, but looking back in hindsight, would I say 'oh, yeah probably should you have waited a little bit?' Sure. But also, I don't regret doing it."

When Howard Stern asked why Lamar Odom would go to a brothel:
"I've asked him that. I said, 'listen, you do whatever the fuck you want to do but please promise me you'll never go back to a disgusting brothel again. And if you want to pay someone, you could pay someone in the privacy of your hotel! What are you doing?'...One day I came in and he was Googling 'Lamar Odom overdose.' I randomly walked into the room as he did this, and I was watching and he saw like surveillance footage or whatever online. So I grabbed the iPad and I was like 'what the fuck are you doing? I've been trying to protect you, I don't want this to hurt you!' I have to remember - he has no idea what people know."

On Caitlyn Jenner:
"All these tabloids are coming out ... we're like 'we could ask the source. You're our dad, we'll ask you.'...Something happened where we were at a meeting with E! for something and they mentioned that Bruce was having a TV show about transitioning or something. That's the first we heard of it. When things started going, he would only want to talk to us on camera ... and I think it was also for security. Maybe he felt like we couldn't get as upset or whatever. We felt so like 'what the fuck? We've been asking you and why do business people know?' I never want someone to feel like they have one-up on our family. We are a family. We've never turned our backs on each other yet with all the clusterfucks of shit that's happened in our lives, why would we now? ...I don't give a fuck what you want to do - just stop lying to us about things. Also it's like, each sister had a different story because he couldn't keep up. Just lay it on the table, what are we doing? What's happening? Even then he didn't tell us ... we didn't know when he was going to start fully dressing as Caitlyn."

Sutton Foster Talks TV Stardom at 40

People caught up with Sutton Foster at the Season 2 Premiere of TV Land's Younger, in which she stars, to talk to her about finding success on TV at 40. Here's what she had to say:

"In a career choice of being a performer and an entertainer where there's no real job security and it's hard to look ahead at what's next, it's really cool to know that we have this next season and to know that the network is really behind us and really believes in the show. So it's exciting!

On getting the lead in Broadway's Thoroughly Modern Millie at 27:
"I remember being freaked out of my mind, thinking I can't handle this, and you kind of do fake it 'til you make it. Those growing pains are hard, and there are a lot of tears. I remember butt-naked crying on my dressing room floor because I was so fucking freaked out. But those things made me stronger, and in many ways, I'm grateful to have this experience of Younger at age 40 because I feel so much more settled and confident in my life, and I can sort of handle it in a more graceful way." 

On her character's love interest Josh (Nico Tortorella) vs hot boss Charles (Peter Hermann) as a potential love interest:
"People are like, 'Who do you pick?' and I'm like, 'I can't, don't make me choose!' What I love that the writers did is they created these two viable candidates. It's not like one's an a------ or one's a jerk or one has all this baggage. They're both really great guys, and they both provide Liza with these great options, so we'll see."

Ray J Engaged to Princess Love

The last time I wrote about these lovebirds, it was because Princess Love was threatening suicide after Ray J, 34, dumped her ass. Apparently nothing says love like telling someone you won't live without them, because E! News reports that the two are engaged! Yeah, this will work out well. Ray J proposed to Princess Love on an airport tarmac in front of a small private plane, like all classy gentlemen do.



America Ferrera Talks Diversity

America Ferrera recently appeared at the Television Critics Association press tour, where she talked about diversity. The Hollywood Reporter quotes her as follows, when talking about her new show Superstore:

“When you’re a person of color, you notice those things, like, 'Oh wow, they’re not casting all white people.' This is the first role I’ve ever been offered in my career that wasn’t written Latina...You would think that a hit show starring a Latina and with a Latina family would be some sort of watershed moment [speaking about Ugly Betty]. But we went off the air and it wasn’t years until we saw another Latina, so I think when it comes to diversity and breaking stereotypes and finding opportunities for non-white actors, progress gets made in these individual steps. … 

I applaud NBC for what they’re doing this season. Three shows starring Latina leads is history — it’s groundbreaking. I don’t know [if] it’s ever happened before. The more we talk about it and the more we talk about how it’s succeeding and the more we talk about how people are hungry to see stories like this — not necessarily to check the diversity boxes but to say, 'Hey, that cast and that world looks like the world I live in' — will encourage other networks and showrunners and writers to enrich their storytelling by reflecting the world that we actually live in."

Celebrity Real Estate - X-Men Edition

Simon Kinberg, the screenwriter and producer for the last few X-Men movies, has scooped up a new home in the Hollywood Hills for $8.4 million. The 6,128 square foot home features five bedrooms, five full bathrooms plus three additional shitters, a home theater, and a guest house. If you watch Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles, you may recognize the property, which was sold by Josh Altman. See pictures of the property at Variety.

Victoria Beckham Crushes Dreams of Spice Girls Fans Everywhere

Remember those rumblings about a Spice Girls reunion happening in 2016 to celebrate the group's 20th anniversary? Well, TMZ reports that Posh Spice just put the kibosh on that. Her rep states that Beckham "has been very respectful about the fabulous time they had together in the past, however her focus is now very much her family and fashion business." Scary Spice has previously stated that she's out unless everyone else is in, so it looks like this reunion is dunzo. Oh, well. We'll always have Spiceworld!

Nicky Hilton Rothschild Is Pregnant

Nicky's sister Paris had this to say of the couple, prior to their wedding: "They're so loyal and so in love. They're like a prince and a princess.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Sacrifices

Oscar contenders (and their publicists) have all different sorts of ways to try to appeal to Academy Awards voters during awards seasons. A key to generating votes is being relatable to the majority of voters. In the past, we’ve revealed to you how one actor suddenly got very involved with his wife and kids to look like a family man. A second actor got married to portray himself as more mainstream than he actually is.

Now let’s talk about our third actor!

He’s basically a rich, spoiled, self-involved, self-indulgent ladies man. However, those things don’t make him relatable to most of the people in his category. So instead of the usual stories about decadent parties and gorgeous girls, you’ll see sympathetic stories about how he really is just a nice, normal guy making sacrifices for his art and looking to settle down. Of course it’s all baloney… but he REALLY wants that Oscar!

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Bitchy Actress

This shy A-list actress is no longer on talking terms with this other outgoing A-list actress. They recently worked on a movie together and not only did the outgoing A-list actress try and have scenes / lines cut from our shy A-list actress, but she also had her PR team spread nasty rumours about her. ‘[Bitchy Actress] was campaigning for an Oscar,’ says my source. ‘She thought that by putting rumors of nastiness on [name omitted] people would forget the countless times she’d been caught treating people like garbage.’

It all backfired when the movie tanked. Something that our outgoing A-list actress has, of course, tried to blame on our shy A-list actress. Our shy A-list actress has ignored it all, of course. She just puts on a smile, continues on working and ignores the outgoing A-list actress whenever she sees her.

Leonardo DiCaprio Talks Biological Clock

Leonardo DiCaprio recently sat down for an interview with Rolling Stone, where he talked about procreating. The magazine quotes him as follows:

"I liked it when you went to see a movie and you didn't know everything about the actor...Do you mean do I want to bring children into a world like this? If it happens, it happens. I'd prefer not to get into specifics about it, just because then it becomes something that is misquoted. But, yeah. I don't know. To articulate how I feel about it is just gonna be misunderstood."

On the prospect of winning an Oscar:
"Sure, everyone likes to be recognized, but that's out of my hands—other people control those things. I will say it would help the film, bring it to more people." 

LOLOLOLOLOL You know Leo was inwardly doing this while talking about winning an Oscar:
