Jermain Jackson Getting Jerdivorced

TMZ reports that Halima Rashid has filed for divorce from Jermaine Jackson after 12 years of marriage. She listed the date of separation as November 28, 2015. That was also the date that Jermaine allegedly spit on her, and she allegedly retaliated by biting his leg. Halima is seeking spousal support. Halima was Jermaine's third wife, and they do not have any children together. Jermaine is my favorite Jackson child namer though; some of his children are Jermajesty, Jaafar, Jaimy, and Jourdynn.

Audrina Patridge Is a Mom

E! News reports that former The Hills star Audrina Patridge, 31, has welcomed her first child with fiancé Corey Bohan, 34. Their daughter Kirra Max Bohan (not a typo) was born on Friday morning. The couple are planning to marry in a small and intimate destination wedding.

Nicolas Cage Splits From Wife

TMZ reports that Nicolas Cage, 52, is splitting from wife, former sushi waitress Alice Kim, 32, after 12 years of marriage. The pair share one son together, Kal-El, 10. Neither one has officially pulled the trigger on the divorce docs, but I think it's safe to say that Alice will be requesting both spousal and child support. This was Cage's third marriage; he was previously married to Patricia Arquette and Lisa Marie Presley.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Frozen Rant

This movie actor got very excited during an interview about a subject that is near and dear to his heart.

What really garnered people’s attention, though, is that he seemed so out of control during his rant: swearing and highly agitated and slurring his words.

Hello?! We’ve been telling you forever that this actor is an coke head and an alcoholic! Did you think those bad habits had magically disappeared? Oh, no.

Since the alcohol/druggie issue is once we’ve covered ad nauseum over the years, let’s focus on a new issue with him: His face! He’s clearly had some work done. It’s not like he has over-inflated lips or cat eyes yet. He’s just frozen. We’ll find out what’s going on there.

How To Go On A Rant by Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck recently appeared on Bill Simmons' HBO talk show Any Given Wednesday, when he went on an epic, profanity-laden rant about Deflategate. The Hollywood Reporter states that Affleck even took to his Twitter to address the rant, stating: "For those of you keeping score at home, I gave exactly 18 fucks about my Pats. Upon reflection, 12 probably would have been sufficient. We Boston fans have always been known for our subtlety. One of my favorite interviews; hope you get to see the entire episode. #GoPats"


Watch the segment below, and decide for yourself - drunk or no? Alcohol bloat or no? It's NSFW, due to Affleck's copious swearing obvi.

The Hoff Successfully Slashes Spousal Support

Remember when The Hoff told a judge that he wants to reduce his $21K/mo spousal support payments to ex-wife Pamela Bach so he can stop having to make shitty movies to pay the bills? Even Pamela clearly saw the benefits of a world in which there are less shitty David Hasselhoff movies, so TMZ reports that the two came to an agreement and David's spousal support payments have been slashed to $10K/mo. I'm not sure if we all win though, because if he's spending less time making shitty movies, it means he has more time to make shitty music.

Kelly McGillis Attacked By Crazy Stalker

TMZ reports that Kelly McGillis returned to her North Carolina home on Friday night to find a strange woman in her kitchen with a young girl. When asked who she was, the lady accused Kelly of stalking her on Twitter. When Kelly could tell that the lady was a few crayons short of a whole box, she tried to flee the premises, but the lady knocked Kelly to the ground, scratched her, and pulled her hair. Kelly managed to set off her car alarm, which started the lady long enough for her to make her escape. Kelly's neighbors are apparently assholes, because they ignored her screams for help despite being home, so she had to drive down the road to find a nice neighbor who would allow them to use their phone to call 911. The crazy stalker lady was booked on burglary, larceny, stalking, assault and batter, and interfering with emergency communication.

Catching Up with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin

The Hollywood Reporter recently caught up with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, and asked them a round of rapid questions. Here's what they had to say:

On how long they want to continue Grace and Frankie:
Jane: "It would be fun to take us into wheelchairs. I'm 78 years old now, I would say at least until I'm 85."

Lily: "So cool. I don't have any finish date. If it stays really fun like this, yeah, I'll keep wanting to do it." 

Last night I …
Jane: "Watched the last episode of Roots."

Lily: "Slept."

The show I can't wait to binge watch is …
Lily: "House of Cards."

Lily: "Hedda Gabler. I just made that up."

If I had to switch careers tomorrow, I would be …
Jane: "A landscape architect."

Lily: "A waitress. "

The question I wish people would stop asking me is …
Jane: "What's it like to work with Lily Tomlin? "

Lily: "What is Dolly Parton really like?"

The best vacation I've ever taken was to …
Jane: "The Great Barrier Reef [in Queensland, Australia]."

Lily: "My best vacation has always been to Greece."

The last time I cried was …
Jane: "Last night when we shot a scene where the two of us made up from an argument."

Lily: "She did. I cried in that same scene watching her cry."

Jane: "I cry because of you."

The last phone call I returned was to ...
Lily: "Jesus."

Jenna Dewan Tatum Talks Finding Balance

Jenna Dewan Tatum is on the cover of this month's Women's Health. Here's what she had to say:

"I realized that if you try to be the perfect mom, perfect wife, perfect actress, you start to feel overwhelmed. You shut down. I got that really fast...I was running back and forth from breast-feeding to filming a scene, overextending myself on every level. I realized I have to make priorities, and my family is number one no matter what."

While Jenna is vegan, husband Channing Tatum is not:
"He really did try to be vegan for six months. The guy doesn't like vegetables, which makes it tough. It was hard in the beginning because you want someone to be on the same page, but you've gotta let people be themselves." 

On the attention Channing Tatum gets from women:
"I think he's the sexiest thing in the world, so of course I get why other people think it. It's always fun and we laugh about it."

Rihanna Cries For Dublin

Rihanna performed in Dublin on Tuesday night. Before the show, she was hanging backstage with MMA fighter Connor McGregor, and got to the stage 30 minutes late. Now different gossip sites have different takes on this. She kicked off her set with "Stay," and seemed upset. Here's where reports diverge. She next performed "Love the way You Lie," and broke down crying during the song, but was finally able to continue. Page Six writes it up as if she was dealing with some shit, and it came out during the concert. TMZ's take is that she was overwhelmed with emotion after the crowd started singing the lyrics back to her. At any rate, Rihanna finished up the 24-track set without further incident, and oped to play a couple new songs from Anti in lieu of an encore.

Nico Tortorella Is Sexually Fluid

This isn't news to anyone who follows Nico Tortorella on Instagram, but at a recent Pride event in New York City, a Page Six reporter asked the Younger star how he identifies. Here's what he had to say:

"I've never been in any sort of closet...I was never really in the house. I think it's one thing to hide...and it's one thing to come out of the closet in a public statement...But I've always done me and never been shy...and have been vocal about it. It's just a fluidity...We're all kind of moving into this one situation."


Tortorella is currently dating a woman.

TMZ reports that Mandy Moore's divorce from Ryan Adams has been finalized. Neither party will pay spousal support. Mandy gets to keep the Beverly Hills condo and the 2012 Prius, while Ryan gets to keep his comic book collection, pinball machines, a 2008 Porsche Carrera, and a '59 Cadillac. They each keep their own publishing rights, and since Ryan's take is slightly more than Mandy's, he has to pay her $425K in cash to keep things even stevens.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Singer Is Confusing AF

This singer’s behavior has become increasingly erratic, and her friends and associates are worried.

"The first thing she does every day is to look at [list of publications] to see who they’re talking about. If there’s something about [Other Singer] and [Other Singer] and nothing about her, she gets annoyed. Then she says stupid shit about other people to get attention and then acts all shocked when there’s a backlash.

It’s confusing AF to be around her because she’s totally schizo about wanting attention. You spend an hour with her and she’s like: Pay attention to me! Why are you all paying attention to me? Stop paying attention to me! Why isn’t anyone paying attention to me?

I don’t know what’s going on because I don’t spend 24/7 with her, but she seems to be having some kind of a meltdown."

Perhaps our Singer would benefit from a few weeks “vacation”?

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Far Too High

This actress is C-list or B-list, but she’s getting an A-list salary for her next flick. You should find out when Forbes releases their annual salary list and she’s far too high.


Who is she?

Catching Up with Bella Thorne

Bella Thorne is on the cover of this month's Galore Magazine. Here's what she had to say:


What’s it like dating a British guy?

"It’s funny. One time he told me, “So what are you gonna get me for my birthday? Winky face.” And I was like, “A dialect coach.” And he was like, “What’s a dialect coach? Why would you get me that?” And I was like, “Because you have a horrid accent.” He was so offended that he was like, “But, but, girls love my accent. They love that I’m British.” And I’m like, “Oh, here we go. Well, I guess I’m not basic then.” I do like his accent, because it’s very—I’m not a huge fan of accents in general. It’s not my main thing—but his is really nice, really soft, and he’s been here for so long [that] a lot of British people have no idea he’s British. He has to kind of ‘put on’ his accent, [make it] a little bit thicker, because he does an American accent on his show all the time, every day. It’s kind of seeped its way into his."

Do you ever accidentally pick his accent up, Madonna-style? Omg!
"No way. No, because I think I sound really silly when I do it, so I just like really won’t go near the accent at all. But Bella P, my best friend, every time she’s around Gregg, she goes full-on British and it sounds so bad; and Gregg is like looking at her as she’s like having a conversation with him and trying to do his accent, and I’m like, “Bella, stop! Nobody wants to hear that. Stop!”"

What are your acting goals over the long term? 
"Yeah, I definitely want to win an Oscar. When I was watching the Oscars the other night, I was thinking the whole entire time, “Wow! One day that’s going to be me, and I know what I’m gonna say when I get up there: ‘HFS I just won an Oscar!’” I know you’re not supposed to curse on the stage at the Oscars, but I will do it because I will be the rule-breaker. How do you not produce a sentence of curses when you just won an Oscar? It’s so crazy, you have to. I have another film [coming out] I didn’t mention, which is “XO”. It’s about aliens, and it’s really cool. It’s with Jack Kilmer, Val Kilmer’s son, and he’s so interesting and Indie. It’s about aliens. It’s going to be dope. It’s an action alien type."

When people are in their squad and stuff, how much is PR and how much is people enjoying hanging out with each other?
"I think they originally hang out because of PR and end up genuinely liking each other and they actually end up hanging out. At first, it’s more of a PR stunt, but you know, you never know when you’re like, “Wow, I actually like you. You’re actually a cool person.” So I’m sure all those girls figured that out when they started fake hanging out, and then they’re like, “Wow, you ARE cool.”
I can’t speak for anyone else. I have no idea. I don’t know that I’ve ever taken a photo with somebody famous to like, get people to talk about it. The only time that I ever do that is when I’m with Zendaya, because I’ll take a Snapchat because I know our fans love us together and they don’t get to see us together often anymore. We’re already hanging out anyway just because we’re chill with each other, but I’ll take a Snap to make them happy. Because it’s like, “Aw, they’re together again. It’s so cool,” and now we’re women, grown women."

Does it bother you when people say that girls are bitchy? 
"I don’t get offended because girls are really mean. I will say—no matter where you go in life, it’s high school everywhere. I’m sure in the work office, for you, there’s high school [drama], and there’s one girl who’s bitchier than everybody. Girls are just mean and so competitive—it’s so crazy. I grew up hanging out with guys because I’m a tomboy. My boyfriend all the time is like, “I swear to God you were born a boy.” I’m very chill in that way, and other girls sometimes get really, really like, competitive and catty and who likes who? You like him? Too bad. I like him. We’re going to have a problem now. And for me, especially since I’m in a relationship, I’m like, “It’s really not that big of a deal.” But I randomly meet girls, [like] Samara. I met her on “The Babysitter,” which will be coming out this year too, and she’s such a homey. As soon as I met her, I was like, “Oh, you’re mine. You will be mine.” We’re still friends. And Mae Whitman and stuff, that just don’t care; Liana Labrada—she’s just so chill and cool. Those are the girls I hang out with. Chloe Moretz—she’s chill too, and really tomboyish like me. Those are the only girls I really hang out with in the business for that exact reason. I just chill with them and don’t have to go to a party or club or fancy dinner at The Chateau. I’m just chilling at my place ordering California Pita."

Dwayne Wade Talks Feeling Self-Conscious

Dwayne Wade recently sat down for an interview with ESPN Magazine, where he appears on the cover of their Body Issue. Here's what he had to say, in a self-penned essay:

"To me, doing the Body Issue is bigger than looking at an athlete's body. It's more about the story we are telling of overcoming my fear of doing this. I had a fear of being naked in front of others and a fear of being judged. So to me, overcoming that is the biggest thing. Someone may look at me and think, "Why would you have insecurity?" Well, this is real life and I'm human, and these are the things that I deal with that many others might deal with.

When I was young, my belly button was an outie, and I never even wanted to take my shirt off when we were at the swimming pool or outside during water fights. The only people who went into the pool with their shirts on were the kids who were overweight -- and me. I knew that I was different. I knew from all the kids I had seen that nobody else had what I had. No one else had an outie. Even when I got to high school, I didn't want to do swimming class because I didn't want people to see my feet -- as an athlete, my feet were a little rougher -- and my belly button. I had my doctor write me a note to say that I couldn't do swimming, and the first day I sat down and watched everybody else and it just looked so fun. I eventually was like, "I've got to do it, I got to do it."

...I work hard on my body, man. I'm 34 now; it doesn't come as easy as it did when I was 21, 22. I have to work at it now, where it used to be something that just came natural. Now I have to put in so many hours, but it makes me feel good to see the finished product. Like I said, being 34 but still being talked about -- to me, that's great, and it shows a lot about my hard work.

...I've always had an old-man game -- it's always been a part of me. But obviously when I was 21, 22, 23, I was just more athletic and faster. Now I have to use it more because it's an older game. It's just an understanding that, you know what, I'm not going to try to use my burst all the time because I'm playing against younger, quicker, athletic guys. I'll be playing into their hands if I do that.

I never envisioned that I would be playing this long. I think I always told myself that my body would tell me, "Hey, I gave you enough, it's time." So whenever my body tells me that, I'll listen to it and then I'll make that decision. But nah, I'm not there yet. I've got some good years left."

Tom DeLonge In Search Of the Truth That is Out There

Former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge recently sat down for an interview with Mic, where he explained why he had to leave the band, and what he now spends his time doing. He is quoted as follows:

We got a press release that says you decided to not tour with Blink-182 in favor of working on this. What was the decision that went into that? 
TD: "Well it's not so much about Blink. It's about what I'm doing with my life now. When you're an individual like me, dealing with something that's a national security issue, and you're being gifted with the opportunity to communicate something you've been passionate about your whole life — something that has the opportunity to change the world over time — being a small part of that is enormously important for my life path. 
But I can't do everything. I can't tour nine months out of the year with enough time to do the enormity of what I'm setting out to do."

OK I have to ask: How many people have made a joke about your "Aliens Exist" song in relation to this project?
TD: "[Laughs] Yeah, isn't that the weirdest thing? It's weird that people remember that song. It's, like, an eighth album track from, like, 20 years ago [1999's Enema of the State]. 
The very last line of that song references this urban legend in UFO folklore called Majestic 12, these documents that got leaked in the '80s that described an entire organization of top-level scientists, military people and intelligence officials that manage the information of this phenomenon. I put the name in that song, and the irony now is that I'm dealing with people from the modern version of whatever that group is called. It's a big deal."

How did you first get interested in this kind of thing — the possibility of aliens and UFOs?
Tom DeLonge: "First of all, we don't really call it "aliens." In pop culture, that's a term people throw out there, and rightfully so because the government spends a lot of time and a lot of money throwing that term out there. But it's much more complex than that. 
I first got into it in junior high. I don't know why. I just had some free time on my hands and I found myself at the school library looking for books on the subject matter. [In] the beginnings of my career with [Blink-182], you have a lot of free time in the van, traveling across the country for 12 months, so I found myself getting a lot of really interesting books that challenged the way I thought about stuff."

Scientists in places like the SETI institute are taking the possibility of alien life seriously. But they have a different way of talking about this stuff. 
TD: "Yeah, they are, and they have their own way of doing things. I think there's been a policy to find microbial life far out somewhere else, then start the conversation about life in the universe and how it could form, how far it can advance itself and could they ever come here. Maybe they sent drones here. I'm starting with the idea there's been something else here all along.
There are two sides to looking for other forms of life. There's one that's looking at the interaction with humanity over a very long period of time. But there's also advancing the idea that there was life or forms of life on Mars, on Europa, and even farther out — on exoplanets that look very much like Earth."

Will Smith Talks Shitty Movies

Will Smith recently spoke on a panel at Cannes Lions. Here's what he had to say, as reprinted by Page Six:

“Back in the ’80s, if you had a piece of crap, it was Wednesday [after a Friday debut] before people knew your movie was shit. But today, it’s 10 minutes into the movie before people are saying, ‘It’s shit, [let’s] go see Vin Diesel.’ The idea of smoke and mirrors in marketing is over. The people are going to know and they’re going to know globally..."The biggest shift in my life is from product to people. If I have a deeper comprehension of people, the product I create is going to be more successful. When I read a script, [it’s] not [just] ‘Can this make a lot of money?’ — I want it to make a lot of money — but ‘How does this improve lives?’”


What's New In the OC?

A couple of news stories centering around the Real Housewives of Orange Country. 

First up, much of Meghan King Edmonds storyline on this season of the Real Housewives of Orange County centers on her struggle to get pregnant via IVF with husband Jim Edmonds (he had a vasectomy, hence the IVF). Spoiler alert: She's pregnant! People reports that Meghan is four months along, and their daughter was conceived during the first round of IVF treatments. This will be Meghan's first child; Jim has four children from previous relationships.





Next up, remember when former Real Housewife of Orange County Lauri Peterson's son Josh couldn't stay out of trouble in his teen years?
