David Foster Says No To Spousal Support

E! News reports that David Foster has asked the court to deny spousal support to soon-to-be-ex-wife Yolanda Hadid (yep, she already went back to her first ex-husband's last name. Makes sense; her kids have that last name too). Hadid had requested both spousal support and for her legal fees to be paid by Foster in her filing. 


Brandi Glanville Talks Real Housewives

Brandi Glanville is making the interview rounds ahead of the premiere of her upcoming reality show for E! Famously Single. Page Six quotes her as follows, when talking about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills:

"’Beverly Hills Housewives’ will always be a part of my life. It’s like you are grandfathered in … but it has been nice to have a break [from] not always having to strategize and think about what is going to happen next and who is going to come at you. Like constantly being combative with other people, it’s just not healthy or fun…I think on ‘Housewives’ the other women kind of plan with each other who to go after.” 

On Famously Single:
“I was skeptical of going into the project of whether or not I would find true love, but I knew there was a therapy aspect to it, and so I thought, ‘Clearly it’s something I am doing wrong and maybe I need a little help.’ I seem to go through guys fairly quickly. I call them ‘micro relationships’ because as soon as I think something is up, I sabotage and leave. I run away. So I thought, you know, ‘Why not just go and see if I get anything from this?’ ...I thought about not wanting to put my love life out there on camera, but let’s be clear I did ‘Housewives,’ everything is already out there, so why not look for love on camera? What do I have to lose really? Nothing.”


Nick Jonas Grows Some Facial Hair

Page Six reports that Nick Jonas is "dating" Lily Collins, daughter of Phil Collins. Jonas had this to say of Collins: "We went out a couple of times. She is amazing. We have known each other for years, just running in the same circles. I’ve enjoyed meeting different people and spending time with people with all the cards on the table. All people need human interaction at some level. And at my age too, dating is important, getting to know yourself by meeting different people, seeing what it’s all about.” Jonas broke up with Olivia Culpo last year; Collins has previously "dated" Zac Efron and Taylor Lautner.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Chipless Dog Available

This young female celebrity was photographed with a new dog in the past year.

While the dog was good for some photo ops, it seems to have worn out its welcome. Before departing on a recent trip, she left a list of instructions that included the directive “Get rid of [the dog].”

"She doesn’t hate the dog. She’s just over it. It was fun at first, but then it chewed up her shoes, and she doesn’t like all the fur everywhere, and she’s not interested in walking it or taking with her when she travels. She’s not going to toss it on the street though. She told us to get the chip taken out (so nobody will know that she was the owner) and then take it to the shelter and pretend it is our dog we’re giving up."

Perhaps she will leave the same “Get rid of it” directive for any future men or children when they become too much trouble.

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Very Public Feud

I have one source when it comes to this A-list actor and all he’s telling me regarding some very shocking news is… “Blind sided and  shell shocked, and getting increasingly angry. Expect something big from his end in response. Expect leaked stories. Expect a very public feud.”


Who is he?

Kardashian Korner

TMZ reports that Khloe Kardashian has re-filed for divorce from Lamar Odom. She is citing irreconcilable differences, just like last time around. In California, it takes a divorce 6 months before it's finalized. The divorce is reportedly amicable, and Lamar knew ahead of time that Khloe would re-file.


In other Kardashian news, #SockMogul Rob Kardashian continues his quest to prove just how lucrative hosiery can be, when he recently dropped $275K on his and hers Rolex's so he can match with his baby mama Blac Chyna, soon to be known as Angela Kardashian. TMZ reports that  Rob picked a diamond-encrusted Rolex for $150K, and Blac Chyna got one with diamonds for $90K, and one without for $35K for when she's feeling casual.

Anne Hathaway Talks New Mom Etiquette

Anne Hathaway recently appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she opened up about being a new mom. The Hollywood Reporter quotes her as follows:

"Being a mom has changed me in a couple ways. I actually, not based on this moment, but other moments feel a lot more confident."

On going to a gym in West Hollywood:
"Yeah I work out with 5- pound weights, but I pushed a baby out of my body, I feel good right now. So I don’t care what I look like, I feel great. [When a trainer asks if I want pointers] I decide that I’m going to let it drop that I’m a new mom. And I’m like, 'You know, I have worked out here for a long time, but I’ve been gone because I just had a baby seven weeks ago.' And I’m expecting him to say the thing that you say when someone says that you’ve had a baby ("You look great"). Doesn’t matter if it’s true. If somebody says, 'I had a baby 13 years ago,' you say, 'You look great.' That is what you do. That is the etiquette. So I say to this guy, 'I had a baby seven weeks ago.' And he goes, 'Oh, trying to lose the baby weight?' ...[I] cried a little bit."

Courtney Stodden Talks Depression

Courtney Stodden recently sat down for an interview with Us Weekly, where she opened up about suffering from depression. The magazine quotes her as follows:

“I suffer from depression. My depression affects my appetite, sleeping patterns and overall perspective on life. At times, I have severe insomnia and other times I find myself sleeping too much. I have feelings of hopelessness but experience many moments of absolute euphoria.”

On her pregnancy:
“I already love this baby so much. I just fear the thought of motherhood. It’s such an overwhelming responsibility and I want to be the very best mommy that I can possibly be.”

On her future:
“I’m working on a self-help book called Blonde & Blue. It’s an explicit in-depth account of my saddest, darkest moments as well as my highs … My hope is by being painfully honest, my story can inspire others.”

Tamara Tattles Blind Item - Fool Me Once, Shame On Me; Fool Me Twice Shame On You!

This couple may have left their kids behind when they went on a recent island vacation, but they certainly were not alone. Unbeknownst to most on the trip, one single female guest is closer to the couple than everyone else. At least in some ways. Word on the streets is that this couple has a very active polyamorous lifestyle and brought some sand to the beach. The most titillating part is none of the other guests suspected a thing.

Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Cold

Ever wonder where Hulk Hogan got all that money to take on Gawker in court and win $140 million? It turns out that his defense was funded by Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel to the tune of $10 million. Why would Thiel be so generous with his funds? Well, it turns out that about 10 years ago, Gawker outed Thiel, who cofounded Paypal, in an article with the headline, "Peter Thiel is totally gay, people." Thiel took Ivana Trump's advice to heart: Don't get mad, get everything! He recently spoke to the New York Times, here's what he had to say:


“It’s less about revenge and more about specific deterrence. I saw Gawker pioneer a unique and incredibly damaging way of getting attention by bullying people even when there was no connection with the public interest. [Gawker's articles were] very painful and paralyzing for people who were targeted. I thought it was worth fighting back.

I can defend myself. Most of the people they attack are not people in my category. They usually attack less prominent, far less wealthy people that simply can’t defend themselves...even someone like Terry Bollea who is a millionaire and famous and a successful person didn’t quite have the resources to do this alone.

I didn’t really want to do anything. I thought it would do more harm to me than good. One of my friends convinced me that if I didn’t do something, nobody would...I refuse to believe that journalism means massive privacy violations. I think much more highly of journalists than that. It’s precisely because I respect journalists that I do not believe they are endangered by fighting back against Gawker. It’s not like it is some sort of speaking truth to power or something going on here. The way I’ve thought about this is that Gawker has been a singularly terrible bully. In a way, if I didn’t think Gawker was unique, I wouldn’t have done any of this. If the entire media was more or less like this, this would be like trying to boil the ocean.” 

Lainey Gossip Blind Item - Breakup and Tune-Up

She exited a long relationship not too long ago. While they were together, they definitely partied, but he preferred a more chill vibe while she was getting too into the pills. Which is why he claims they ended it. Turns out, around the time of her split, she went to rehab for a tune-up and is now sober and re-focusing on her work. Her work, recently, was rather high profile, a prestige assignment. But she was miserable in that environment, not only trying to avoid bad habits but, apparently, not getting along with her colleagues; supposedly they never wanted to hear her opinions.


Now that she’s clean, her perspective has changed too. So she’s going around telling people that the reason she’s not with him anymore is because he’s not stimulating enough intellectually even though she was so attracted to him. There were a lot of romantic gestures, like dedicating his art to her, but ultimately she’s revised their history to read that she left because she wants someone smarter.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Red Light District

This one is just odd. A guest at the home of a well-known, over-40 film actor found that the actor only uses red light bulbs in his bedroom and bathroom.

"He has this theory that blue-wave lights messes up your brain, and that with the red bulbs he can get up in the middle of the night without fully waking himself up because they don’t interfere with his circadian rhythm.

The downside is that his bedroom looks like some sort of freaky crime scene."

The Gossip Life Blind Item - The Iconic Role

He’s got it. Our A-list actor has got the iconic role, beating out so many competitors in the process, but… he doesn’t know he’s got it yet. His asking price for an iconic role is awfully high that producers are hoping to pressure his agent down by leaking potential castings and holding nugatory meetings.

Who is he?


What’s the role?

Gabrielle Reece Talks Body Image

Gabrielle Reece, who is currently hosting the reality competition show Strong, recently opened up to People about body image. Here's what she had to say:

"I grew up very, very tall. By the time I was 12 I was six feet. It was awkward, it was different. The worst thing you can be when you're going through puberty and those formative years is to be different...It was important for me to understand how I felt. Even if people were like, 'That's kind of strange how big you are,' I thought, I'm going to make peace with that." 

On modeling:
"When I started working and got into fashion, people would go, 'Oh, you're great.' I didn't buy into that either. You have to understand how you feel for yourself, which means you can't get too high, but you don't want to get too low, because too high is not realistic either, it's unhealthy. So it was about having a healthy relationship about my body, myself. I have been in better shape and my clothes have fit better when I've been heavier than when I'm leaner and stronger. I have a different type of relationship with weight. I went into college at 145, came out at 162. I started lifting and then realized that I'm probably at my ultimate weight, to perform or play, at 168. My mental scale is different from other women. I think for me it's about delivering in performance, not showing up and having to look a certain way. I think for me it's been the most important thing to be authentic." 

On her outlook:
"It sounds silly because I'm known for being such a physical person, a physical being – but one thing I've learned is that our body is just a vehicle for us to take this journey, and ultimately who I am is not really my body. So what I'm most happy about my body is what it has taken me to – that I can play professional sport or go on these adventures, have babies. I'm 46 and it seems to be sustaining."


Judge Tells Patrick Dempsey to Shit or Get Off the Pot

Remember when Patrick Dempsey's wife Jillian filed for divorce way back in January 2015? Well the couple hasn't done anything with the divorce case since then, and have seemingly reconciled. E! News reports that a Los Angeles judge recently notified Jillian that she either has to complete the divorce filing, or the case will be thrown out. It seems like the latter will happen, as Patrick Dempsey recently said when asked if he and Jillian had reconciled, "Yeah, I think so." Well, if that isn't a ringing endorsement for their relationship, I don't know what is!


Reddit Blind Item - I Dislike My Fans

I am an actor. Well-known. A few of my movies are among the top-grossing in history. I started out as a child actor and fortunately have worked ever since.

  1. I hate my fans. Appreciate them but hate them. I hate them because they hound and harass me. I am not an attention whore. I don't tip off the paps, party, etc. I usually enjoy being by myself. I can't even be open about being gay. What really irks me is how fans call me by this character's name and start touching me and asking for pictures like I am one of those guys dressed like a Transformer on Hollywood/Vine. Don't get me wrong, I'll always chat and take a picture with a fan if they are cool or for a young fan, but most people are assholes. 
  2. I hate the way they ask me for money and think I have money. I see these sites where fans will say I am worth like $20 million. BITCH PLEASE. I am worth more like $4 million. And I don't even live a lavish style. Far from it. I may get four movie offers ranging from $1 - 4 million. I probably take a quarter of that at the end. Most often I turn down the higher-paying movies because they will do the most damage to your career. Sometimes I won't get any offers. I have tons of expenses. I have to pay lawyers, accountants, family, etc. Don't even get me started on taxes. Also, if I ever become disabled or can't work anymore, then I am fucked.
  3. They think that I can get them work. No I can't. That pisses me off more than anything.
  4. My life is not that glam. Most famous people are not that interesting. They're uneducated. They're ignorant. They're paranoid. They're full of themselves.

Josh Lucas Just Can't Quit Ex-Wife

Maybe it's one of those "If you love someone, let them go" things? People reports that Josh Lucas, 44, and ex-wife Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, 30, are giving it another go. The first time around, the pair got engaged six weeks after meeting and married in 2012. Henriquez was diagnosed with cervical cancer, and just as doctors were asking her to consider a hysterectomy, she discovered she was pregnant. Their son Noah is now 3, and the couple divorced in October 2014. Okay, that was a lot to deal with in a short span of time. Let's hope they're better prepared this time around!

Tom Ford recently beat out Jay Z and Beyoncé's bid when he plunked down $53 million to purchase his new home in Beverly Hills, which set a record for the most expensive home sale in Los Angeles County in 2016.

Huffington Post UK Blind Item - Sexually Harassed Hairdresser

A world-famous singer who allegedly sexually harassed his hairdresser will reportedly be named in the US today, but the British press is gagged once again from naming the celebrity at the heart of the scandal.

The star, known only in court documents as ‘RA’, obtained a gagging order forbidding the publication of his identity.


He faced an employment tribunal over the allegations last year, settling the case out of court in February.

His lawyers have now taken the case to the Court of Appeal in a bid to prevent the star from being identified.

But he will be named in a US publication today.

This latest gagging order means that millions around the world will be able to read about the allegations that a celebrity groped his stylist. 

A source close to the case said that the singer’s behaviour towards the hairdresser “was sustained and sordid beyond belief”, the MailOnline reports.

The source added that the musician was “out of control” and “seems to think the normal rules of acceptable behaviour don’t apply to him because he’s a rich star”. 

The High Court ruled earlier this month that the musician did not have a legal right to remain anonymous. 

‘RA’ has now taken the fight to the Court of Appeal. His anonymity remains intact until the case has been decided.

The hairdresser, known as ‘CA’, originally brought a lawsuit against the celebrity and two others, known as ‘RB’ and ‘RC’.

Mrs Justice Simler said in her judgement that ‘RA’ as a “well-known public figure” and that there was a legitimate public interest in the case, stressing the importance of open justice.

Teen Mom 2's Kailyn and Javi Are Getting Divorced

Us Weekly reports that Teen Mom 2 stars Kailyn Lowry, 24, and husband Javi Marroquin, are 23, are getting divorced after three years of marriage. They share one son together, Lincoln, 2 1/2. Kailyn shares son Isaac, 6, with ex Jo Rivera. The current season of Teen Mom 2 is documenting the breakdown of their relationship, with Javi blaming Kailyn for suffering a miscarriage, then deploying with the Air Force.


Amber Heard Kicks Johnny Depp While He's Down

TMZ reports that just three days after Johnny Depp's mother Betty Sue Palmer, who he was very close to, passed away, Amber Heard has filed for divorce after just over one year of marriage. She cited the ever-popular "irreconcilable differences" in the filing, and is asking for spousal support. Shockingly, Depp did not make Heard sign a prenup. Damn, son! Depp has hired Laura Wasser, and is asking the judge to reject spousal. Damn Amber, that's cold. Johnny just lost his mother, and he's mid-press tour for Alice Through the Looking Glass, so now every single interviewer and every single stop on the rest of the press tour will be asking about the divorce. I'm guessing this divorce will be of the hostile variety. The last time the two were spotted together was on that bizarre hostage apology video.

Blind Gossip Exclusive Blind Item - Cigarettes On Ice

Were you starting to think that this male singer was becoming a better person?

Well, think again!

We have an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look as to what happened when he recently showed up at a local bar with four bodyguards and an entourage and stayed for a couple of hours.

"As soon as he walked in, he lit up a cigarette. He was told that there is no smoking allowed."

So, he put it out, right?

"Instead of going outside, he walked behind the bar and put out the cigarette inside the ice dispenser. Then he just lit up another cigarette and kept smoking. He seemed to think it was funny that someone would try to tell him what to do."

That’s not all.

"He ordered $800 bottles of Cristal and several $500 bottles of Don Julio 1942 Tequila and small plates of food for the group. He kept spitting on the floor."

Then he and his group left without paying.

"The waitress gave them their check, turned around for one minute, and they were gone! He took off without paying and his whole group followed him. The waitress and the owner had to chase them down. His producers gave the owner several hundred dollars, but stuck him with the rest of the bill."

The bartenders and the waitresses got stiffed.

The next day, when the news got out about the singer’s behavior, the police showed up. So did the health inspector. The spitting and the smoking and the disposal of cigarettes into a food service machine were all problematic.

"The bar staff was forced to tear down, wash down, and disinfect everything until 6 a.m. the following morning."

The next time his team tries to convince you that he’s a changed man – so much nicer, so much more centered, so much more real, so disappointed in other people being mean or fake – just know that he’s still the same entitled, obnoxious jerk he always was.

Tamara Tattles Blind Item - Time to Pucker Up!

On this Real Housewife’s first season, she was very lucky that the OG of the show took her under her wing and gave her a chance. That rarely happens. In her second season, she completely abandoned her mentor when the mentor was taking fire from multiple sides. Instead of providing her former friend a healthy, healing oasis, she eventually jumped ship with the rest of the rats, leaving her friend adrift.


The problem is that she doesn’t understand how these shows work. The OG will always be the OG and the rest of the rats eventually fell back in line the next season. This Housewife did not. She decided to drag her submissive spouse into her cat fight. It got ugly. So ugly that this may be her last season. Could be one of the worst edits in history. Which is a shame since she just moved into a new place that was more filming-friendly.

Usher Has A Stalker

TMZ reports that Usher's stalker was arrested again yesterday. Usher has a restraining order against his stalker which requires her to stay at least 200 yards from the singer. The stalker was recently hanging outside of an Atlanta recording studio recording videos of Usher on her iPad from 100 feet away (I did the math for you; that translates to 33 1/3 yards). Way too close for comfort! Here's hoping she finds a new hobby, because that can't be a fun way for Usher to live.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Glazed Over

This singer performed at last night’s Billboard Music Awards. While we will leave the quality of their performance to the critics, we were disturbed at what we heard was going on backstage.

"As usual, it was chaotic backstage. Right before they went out, all the talent was getting themselves psyched up or calmed down with some deep breathing exercises or stretching or doing mini run-throughs of their choreography. In other words, they were all doing something.

[Singer] was just standing there doing nothing. Not talking, not looking at anyone, not moving, not responding to anyone. Nothing. Eyes half closed, mouth hanging open, just completely dull and glazed over and waiting to get pushed onto the stage and go through the motions. I didn’t see any drugs, but it was obvious that something was seriously wrong."

First, fans of the video game on which the movie is based will not be happy. Second, it’s jam-packed and stuffed with shit, like Batman vs Robin, or The Amazing Spider-Man 2 levels of stuffed with shit. Third, it’s quite convoluted at parts and sort of inaccessible for non-game fans. Although it’s dumbed down, beat-you-over-the-head at other parts too.

Emily Ratajkowski Talks Sexiness

Emily Ratajkowski, who sprang to national attention after appearing in Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines video, recently sat down for an interview with the Evening Standard. Here's what she had to say:

"It’s an interesting paradox. If you’re a sexy actress it’s hard to get serious roles. You get offered the same thing that they’ve seen you in. People are like sheep and they’re like 'Oh, that’s what she does well.' What’s so dumb is that women are 50 per cent of the population and they want to spend money to see movies where they’re portrayed as three-dimensional characters."

On her junior high school years:
"I started to realize that I was being perceived differently. Basically it was more about the way that people had a problem with a girl looking like a woman because it confused them, it made them feel uncomfortable and I think there was a lot of guilt that they wanted to induce."

On Feminism:
"Every woman, whether or not they’re comfortable with the term feminist, probably wants to be equal to men and that is fundamentally what feminism is about. I think that there is a stigma attached to the word, but to me it means talking about the way we look at women and how we judge women differently than how we judge men; also it is about paid maternity leave, equal pay for women…"

Media Take Out Blind Item - Popular MEGA-STAR Is Bi-Polar

We here at MediaTakeOut.com are very SAD to have to report this story. But a person close to the EXTREMELY WORLD RENOWNED celebrity set us this info. They hope it will lead the celebrity to get help:

"This is not really gossip, but it’s all true, and it’s very sad and alarming.

[Popular celebrity] really needs help, and no one close to [them] is interested in helping do what’s best. [Popular celeb] was diagnosed as a child with bipolar disorder. [Popular celeb] went untreated for most of [their] life, until [the] teen years when [popular celeb’s] behavior became so bad that medication was necessary.

[Popular celeb] continued medicating until about five years ago, when [popular celeb] became such a huge star. [Popular celeb] started off using holistic remedies to treat the symptoms [of bipolar disorder]. At first it worked, but now it’s not anymore.

What’s worse is that [popular celeb] is now taking hard drugs, cocaine and pills, to self medicate. [A GROUP OF PEOPLE] who are supposed to be the ones closest to [popular celebrity] are just watching as [popular celeb’s life] is spinning out of control.

MTO, please put this out. We sat back and tried to deny the truth when Whitney was on drugs – and she’s gone. The same with Michael and Prince. I don’t want the world to lose another great one."


We really pray for THAT CELEBRITY to go and get the proper help.

Iggy Pop Talks (Not Taking) Drugs

Iggy Pop was at Cannes to promote Jim Jarmusch's documentary about The Stooges called Gimme Danger. Here's what Iggy had to say about drugs, as reprinted by Page Six:

"Everybody should just drop that shit.. I don't drug up anymore. I don't do it. I have wine with dinner and that's about it. [Marijuana] is okay for most people."

On the documentary:

"I was on acid in more than several of the clips in the movie when I was young. I would go from feeling very aggressive for five seconds and then break out laughing."
