Why Barbra Streisand Still Sings

Barbra Streisand will appear tomorrow on CBS Sunday morning. Here's a little preview, as Barbra discusses why she still sings:

“I can buy a painting I like. Or give some work to a university, or do some good...I like singing in a recording studio . . . It’s not performing for anybody . . . I know if I please myself I will please the audience . . . I reach for excellence. I wouldn’t say ‘perfection,’ because there is no such thing.”

Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Split

Page Six reports that former Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Carlton Gebbia has split from husband of 18 years David Cross. However, the couple are still living together for the sake of their three children. A source says of the couple, "She wants her children to have a solid foundation and not to be living in two homes. They’ve been married for 18 years. There’s no reason they can’t raise their children together.” 

This is all coming to light now, because Carlton got drunk as fuck at Bootsy Bellows this week, and had to be carried out on a stretcher, so obviously people figured out that there was a problem. Her rep says of the hospitalization, "She was feeling fine and at a photo shoot yesterday following an allergic reaction to some medication which led to a brief hospitalization Saturday night as a precaution.”

Anna Chlumsky Is a Mom Again

Veep star Anna Chlumsky, 35, has welcomed her second child with husband Shaun So. Page Six reports that their daughter Clara Elizabeth So was born on July 28th. Clara joins older sister Penelope Joan, 3. The couple have been married since 2008.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Brotherly Beef

These two brothers are actors. They have recently stopped speaking to each other.

What are they beefing about? Money!

One is making more than the other, and the poorer one is accusing the richer one of being a “cheap bastard” when it comes to helping out family members.

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Tumblr Icon

This C-list teenage actress is a Tumblr icon right now, praised for her bravery, her "body pride" and her feminism. We here at the Gossip Life have spoken to a very reliable source that tells us the actress is a complete and utter fake. "She is playing the edgy, sexy card because she thinks that works for her right now," says my source. "Away from the spotlight, she's a calm, cool person that doesn't even mention any of the issues she appears to be so passionate about."

That must mean she's a better actress than we thought.

John Krasinski Talks About Sex, Baby

John Krasinski recently sat down for an interview with Elle Magazine. Here's what he had to say:

You got into insane shape for 13 Hours. How does Emily feel about your new body?
"The truth is, she really is that person who would like me any way. But I don't think she's going to kick the eight-pack abs out of bed."

Is sex different now that you're ripped?
"Absolutely. And again, totally selfishly, it is so much better for me being jacked because you feel so much more confident and you see yourself as this much more sexual person, which is really fun."

Is there a romantic comedy you love?
"I can honestly say, before I met Emily, it was The Devil Wears Prada. That one dosed me in a really big way. Everybody looks like they're having a blast. Everybody's wearing great clothes. When we first started dating, I didn't know that she was coming over and I was watching it, and she was like, "Oh, what are you watching?"—and I quickly changed the channel to something dude-like."

What was scarier: Doing your first play or losing your virginity?
"They're on par. I think the reason why both are almost equally scary is the anticipation. One of the best lessons I've ever gotten in my life is to anticipate nothing because it's always worse in your head than it really is. I certainly went into losing my virginity terrified. Going on stage, I could only have imagined the worst possible outcomes. And then it went fine."

Gabrielle Carteris Doesn't Want You To Know How Old She Is

...or anyone else, for that matter. Now that Gabrielle Carteris is the president of SAG-AFTRA, she wants to remove actors ages from their IMDB pages. Let's be honest, this is all because she's still salty that everyone knew she was 29 when she was cast as 16-year-old Andrea Zuckerman on 90210, and everyone made fun of her for it. Here's what she had to say in an essay for The Hollywood Reporter.

"It is time to stop the ageism that permeates Hollywood's casting process. This problem exists for all performers, but most distinctly for women. Performers create characters and often employ illusion to do so. That's acting.

My role on Beverly Hills, 90210 could not have happened for me today, plain and simple. I would never have been called to audition for the part of 16-year-old Andrea Zuckerman if they had known I was 29. Electronic casting sites did not exist in 1990; today, they are prevalent and influential. And they affect casting decisions even when casting personnel don't recognize their unconscious bias.

What worries me is that my fellow actors are not being afforded the same opportunities today — actors who are trying to make a living and find their big break. They face blatant age discrimination every day as websites routinely used for casting talent — sites like IMDb and StudioSystem — force birthdates and ages on casting decision-makers without their even realizing it. SAG-AFTRA wants to end that now. California's AB 1687 would help put a stop to the rampant misuse of personal information and ensure legal, fair hiring practices when employers use online casting and data services. Authored by Assembly member Ian Calderon, AB 1687 — which will require websites to take down birthdates when requested by a performer who subscribes to the site — has passed through both houses of the state legislature by an overwhelming majority. The final stop is California Gov. Jerry Brown's desk. I am extremely proud to have shared my experience on this critical issue with the California Senate Judiciary committee in June."

Read the full essay at The Hollywood Reporter. What's your take on the age sitch?

Forbes Highest Paid Actor

Yesterday, it was actresses. Today, it's actors. Forbes revealed that The Rock is this year's highest paid actor, clocking in at $64.5 million, more than double his earnings from last year. It's good to be the Rock! In second place is Jackie Chan at $61 million, 3rd is Matt Damon at $55 million, 4th is Tom Cruise with $53 million, and 5th is Johnny Depp at $48 million. Robert Downey Jr, who had occupied the top spot for the past three years, dropped down to 8th place with a paltry $33 million.

Larry King's Wife Allegedly Cheating on Him

Page Six reports that the National Enquirer recently ran a story that Larry King's wife Shawn, 56, has been cheating on him was another man for the past year. King, who is 82, apparently reacted as follows, according to one of his friends: “He’s heartbroken. He’s embarrassed and furious. All options are being considered. Nothing has been ruled out...He’s 82 years old, he’s survived cancer twice, heart surgery and he’s diabetic,. When this came out last week, some of us were actually happy, hoping this will finally mean that he can live his life in some sort of peace, should they decide to divorce.”

Naya Rivera Opens Up About Abortion

Okay, be honest. Back when there was an abortion blind on the Glee set, we all thought it was about Dianna Agron, right? Turns out, it was Naya Rivera! She reveals that in late 2010, she discovered that she was pregnant with Ryan Dorsey's child weeks after breaking up with them. Rivera did not tell Dorsey at the time, and terminated the pregnancy during a day off from filming Glee. Rivera and Dorsey reunited in 2014, got married, and are parents to son Josey, 11 months. Here's what she had to say to People about writing about her experience in her upcoming autobiography:

"It was very scary to open up about everything. It's not something a lot of people talk about, but I think they should. I know some people might read it and say, 'What the Hell?' But I hope someone out there gets something out of it...I hope Josey will read it one day. I hope it gives him a better perspective on the issues women face." 

Texas Hold-em: Amber Heard Edition

Amber Heard sees Johnny Depp's $7 million charitable donation, and she raises him another $7 million! TMZ reports that Amber Heard is giving a huge side-eye to Johnny Depp's direct payments of her divorce settlement to the charities that she claimed that she would donate the proceeds of the divorce to. Her people released the following statement:

"If Johnny wishes to change the settlement agreement, we must insist that he honor the full amount by donating $14M to charity, which after accounting for his tax deduction, is equal to his $7M payment obligation to Amber. We would also insist that the full amount be paid immediately and not drawn out over many years. Anything less would be a transparent attempt by Johnny's counsel, Laura Wasser and Patti Glaser, to reduce their client's true payment by half under the guise of newfound concern for charities that he has never previously supported."

Advantage: Heard.

And this is the last I'll be writing of this messy couple. I get that this topic is polarizing, and we're all beating a dead horse at this point. Amber's team decided to try this in the court of public opinion instead of in the court of law, and that's what I've based by commentary on - the PR aspect of the divorce, not the facts in question. It was a bad PR move to file for divorce the day after Johnny's mother died, and her side only devolved from there with daily leaks of information in an attempt to make Johnny look bad. Johnny's not a saint, and definitely needs to sober up and re-examine his life choices, but in the court of public opinion, his side played a better game. Case dismissed.

The person most excited by this divorce of course is Marilyn Manson. Now he and Johnny Depp can go back to being the cool kids in the high school that we can Hollywood and smoking under the bleachers together. I mean, don't forget that Manson said this to Rolling Stone"We like to consider ourselves 12th-graders, the guys with more experience than the ninth-graders, the ones that the girls want to fuck. I mean, time and age are really irrelevant to me. Johnny is the same way. Sometimes, I think I'm trapped in the age that I started this. I'm trapped at 23."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Rejected Four Times

This celebrity was previously rejected by this celebrity competition show four times!

Perhaps it’s because she is somewhat famous, but not for any definable reason.

She was once married to someone famous, but only for a year. Calling her an actress would a stretch, because she almost always appears on shows as herself. She was signed to a modeling agency for less than a year a long time ago, so she really isn’t a model by profession. She has made guest appearances on other people’s reality shows, but has never had her own show, so you can’t really call her a reality star.

She was finally accepted by the show after she pledged to promote it on her social media accounts at least three times a week while the show is in progress. The producers may not care that much about her… but they do care about her millions of followers!

It was one of the most infamous box office bombs in recent years, a stain on every participants' young career. The cast are discovering just how costly the mistake to appear in it was. Nearly every member is struggling to find top quality work. All have lost roles they were once signed for. The panned bomb is deterring all major studios from pursuing the actors. Only indies are coming to call and you know how they pay.

Gina Rodriguez Praises Mark Wahlberg

Gina Rodriguez recently sat down for an interview with Latina Magazine, where she talked about her upcoming movie Deepwater Horizon, co-starring Mark Wahlberg. Here's what she had to say:

On shooting Deepwater Horizon:
"Peter Berg is a genius. Mark Wahlberg is a badass. John Malkovich, Kurt Russell, Kate Hudson—I learned so much from these people, from this cast, from this family. A lot of movies were offered to me after the Golden Globes—Jane opened so many doors—and when the Deepwater Horizon script came across my iPad, I was like, this is the movie I’m going to fight for. This is the one I want to do."

On Mark Wahlberg:
"We never had a conversation about color, ethnicity, or culture, but we had the conversation about struggle. One thing that I find extremely empowering about Mark is that he doesn’t want to do it alone. He wants to help everyone around him, uplift everyone around him. Mark understands that he got to where he was because of all the people that helped him get there, including himself. He got me. He got the idea that shit was hard and I pushed through. It wasn’t just hard as a Latina, it wasn’t just hard as a curvy leading lady, but it was hard as a woman. It was hard as somebody that came from the ’hood. He gets struggle, and he could see it in someone else. He definitely was super supportive of me. He knows how to run his industry, his empire, and yet preserve himself. He wakes up and he prays and he gives thanks. He’s grateful and appreciative, and he’s giving. The man is where he’s at not only because of his fight but also because of his heart. You could tell, because ’hood knows ’hood, ’hood recognizes ’hood."

On shaving her head for an upcoming role:
"I think it all plays into the idea of being your own hero and not feeling like you have to live up to other people’s expectations. I am not my beauty. Who I am is not my fucking hair, and to be an actor is to transform. To represent a community is to commit, to give my entire all. So if I’m going to represent Latinos in the industry and in art, if I’m going to represent my little cousins in Chicago, they’re going to know that I went full out. Who are we afraid of? What are we afraid of? The worst thing that can happen is we die. Anything else you can handle."

Catching Up with Kate and the Eight

Kate Gosselin and 7 of her 8 kids sat down for an interview with People. Here are some of the revelations from the interview:

Collin no longer lives with the family:
"Collin has special needs. [There's] a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things. This has been a struggle we've had for a very long time, and it's one I've dealt with on my own. I've felt very alone in this. By the same token, it's not something that has only impacted me or him – our entire family has been impacted. [Collin is] enrolled in a program that is helping him learn the skills he needs to be the best him he can be. We miss him so much, so it's been hard because there is a huge hole in our family without him here. But it comforts us to know he's where he needs to be right now, and I can feel good about that...When your kids go to college, do you miss them? Yes, but you reassure yourself that they are getting so much out of it. And that's the same sort of investment I feel like I've made Collin's future."

Mady has some words for father Jon Gosselin:
"He makes it seem like we're being kept from him, which is insane. He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don't want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen. He doesn't even know us. How can he dare to talk about us?"

Now, TMZ reports that Isaiah is requesting spousal support to the tune of $25K/mo. Isaiah states he left his job when he married Frances, and now he's too sad to make money making music like he used to. He also wants half of the money she made during their union. Isaiah mentions in the divorce docs that due to Kurt Cobain's estate, the Bean is worth over $100 million, but she made it clear in her divorce docs that Isaiah better keep his grubby little hands off her daddy's money.

Johnny Depp Cuts Out the Middle Man

Remember last week when Amber Heard announced that she was giving the $7 million she gets from her divorce from Johnny Depp to charity, and a few of you thought that those charities might never see those checks? TMZ reports that Johnny Depp has called Amber Heard's bluff, and sent off the first installment of the divorce settlement directly to the ACLU and Children's Hospital; they both confirmed that they received checks from Johnny on Wednesday. His rep released the following statement:

"Following Amber Heard's announcement that her divorce settlement was to be divided equally and gifted to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union, two exceptionally deserving and important charities, Johnny Depp has sent the first of multiple installments of those monies to each charity in the name of Amber Heard, which when completed will honor the full amount of Ms. Heard's pledge. Ms. Heard's generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected."

Remember when I liked Taylor Swift again after her Louisiana flood donation? All that goodwill is gone. Us Weekly reports that "a source" tells them that Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have had their first fight. Vom. Here's what else the source had to say: “There was so much going on so it was hard making their schedules work and they were upset they couldn’t see each other. Tom is busier than her right now, so it’s been hard. They’ve had some schedule issues, but things are otherwise fine. They are making it work.” Sounds like a really mature relationship.

They will remain friends and they see each other, but they are not together. It was very amiable."

You believed we all have a responsibility to each other.  You believed speaking the truth carries no risk but silence in the face of things that matter has the potential to destroy us all. You believed in the truth inside each of us. You didn’t let ignorance, cruelty,  bigotry, racism, sexism or the selfishness in our culture make you apathetic. You knew there was a choice. You chose to choose differently. You inspired a generation. Here’s to your timelessness as you continue to inspire for generations to come. 23 years ad infinitum. #HappyBirthdayRiverPhoenix #Givers4River #bethechange #dosomethingnicetoday #bekind #activate #activism #giveback #makeart #cry #laugh #lifeisprecious #useyourpowersforgood #love #service #choice #truth #justice #animalrights #humanrights #environmentalism #artist #brother #activist #friend #inspiration

Cupping tells a story. Each mark left on your skin paints a picture of what is happening below the surface. These marks are light in color, and as you do this more and more you'll notice the marks will be progressively lighter as the pathogens are systemically removed from the body. In my adult years I have tried my best to be as healthy as I can, but so much is out of our control. Who knows what environmental toxins we are taking on while living in big cities, or pesticides and chemicals we ingest unknowingly. For example, I live a mostly plant based diet, so I'm constantly thinking about what chemicals or pesticides I am consuming especially when I eat out. The most exciting thing and what I really wanted to share is this: While cupping can be quite expensive, it doesn't have to be. You can also do it on your own :) with plastic cups that are available online (versus glass which is what my doctor uses) for less than 20$ which my girlfriend Nat recently introduced me to. And then you can have a fun DIY cupping day coupled with a little bit of learning which is always good for the soul. Even taking part of an afternoon to research something new can be beneficial for all of us. Happy Monday!

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Skipping Work for Easy Money

This actress used to be a star when she was younger. Now she is broke and frequently under the influence. That’s why she is making such bad decisions. Even when she is offered work, she sometimes doesn’t show up because she has other priorities. She will go wherever the “easy” money and the drugs are. Unfortunately, that’s not always where the acting gigs are.

Scott Eastwood Talks Dating

Scott Eastwood recently sat down for an interview with GQ Australia, where he talked about why he doesn't date much. Here's what he had to say:

On the last time he cried:
“I dated a girl a couple of years ago who died in a car accident. The fucked up thing is, it was a fender bender, and there was a recall on airbags. Her airbag exploded. It shot a projectile through her body. It split her spine, and um... I’ve never told anybody that. I’ve lost friends before; I’ve lost some great friends. But, I had never lost someone I had been really intimate with, you know, like in that way, in a relationship. I think that really affected me in a way that... I don’t know. Maybe it’s made it harder for me to date. I still never called her father. I still haven’t found the right words.”

On his current dating MO:
“I’m going to meet my future ex-wife next week...It’s easy to fall in love when you’re young, right? And then you start to realise those feelings of love and stuff, passion, love, lust, sometimes they come very quickly, but they can also leave quickly....[When I was bartending] was probably the wildest time... It still beats out being in movies or whatever. It still beats out all that, a thousand times...The crazy thing about London is, it’s just the centre of the universe, the centre of like the EU [well, not so much anymore]. This is it. You get girls from Spain, you get girls from Croatia, Germany, Slovakia... yeah, everywhere, so it’s awesome. They’re beautiful out here.”

On Clint Eastwood's parenting style:
“I had taken my younger sister, who was, like, 14, to this party. I left, maybe to go get beer with the guys. And I left her and I didn’t think about it at the time. Later, Dad found out that I’d left her there. He popped me and said, ‘You don’t ever leave your sister at a party. EVER.’ And it was very old-school, very old-school of him. He wasn’t afraid. None of this new-age bullshit where you can’t even smack the kid because everyone’s afraid of being judged or whatever. That wasn’t the way that shit went down in that family... If you did something wrong, you were going to get punished. I learnt quickly – you don’t do that.”

On what pisses him off:
“Complainers, whiny little fucking brats. You just really want to knock them out and be like, ‘You lucky, lucky, spoilt brat. You’re full of yourself. You’re so lucky, I would love nothing more than to knock you out, to show you how much of a little brat you’re being...I just worked with an actor, a younger actor, you know, there were a few times I snapped on him. I said, ‘Get your arse over here! This is a job!’ And I could hear myself, after I said it, I could hear my father inside of me saying it, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, I’m turning into my father.’ You know, a lot of people aren’t raised like that anymore, where someone is able to put them in check and say, ‘Hey, stop acting like an arsehole, get over here, this is a fucking job.’ That’s how my Dad would’ve done it. There’s a little bit of that lacking in society today.”

These two A-list actors starred together in a forgettable movie a decade or so ago. It was before one of the A-list actors was launched to the A-list and when he lingered around the C or D-list. He was cast on the condition he "uglied himself up" as not to "overshadow the A-list lead."

"I think [name omitted] still holds a grudge," says my source. "There's been tension between him and [name omitted] ever since."

Courteney Cox Talks Breakups

Courteney Cox recently appeared on an episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls, where she opened up to him about her breakups. Here's what she had to say, as reprinted by Page Six:

On Johnny McDaid:
“We were engaged for over a year and then we broke up. I didn’t know how to regard love the way he does. And it definitely made a lot of mistakes that I see, whether it’s co-dependency or people-pleasing. I didn’t know how to bring it in. It was always external. I definitely have learned a lot, and no matter what, I will be a better person from that breakup, even though it was so brutal.

On reuniting with McDaid after their split:
“It’s just … everything’s new. We have both really worked on ourselves, on the parts that needed the most attention. And it feels really different.”

On ex-husband David Arquette:
“I think that we were such good friends, we found ourselves leading separate lives and just co-existing and being great friends, but not having the intimacy that … is so important in a relationship. I think you really need to work in a relationship, and I think that we tried. We’re just really different, too. I’m the polar opposite of him. That can be great for a lot of things, but I need this kind of real, one-on-one connection. It wasn’t a dramatic ending … as divorces go, I would say it’s one of the better ones. For sure. We’re good co-parents together.”

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Sniffer

This pop star sniffed that she never liked her musician friend’s ex-girlfriend and that she encouraged him to break up with her.

Maybe that wasn’t such a good idea. Here is some of the feedback we got from people close to the situation:

"She knows damn well that he could not have broken up with her (even if he wanted to) because the relationship was contractual!"

That’s not all.

"She just hates other women. [The musician’s ex-girlfriend] never did anything to her but she wanted to tear her down anyway. That’s why she has no female friends. If you ever see a female hanging out with her, guarantee it’s someone whose paycheck she signs."

Finally, there’s her compulsion to publicly comment on other people’s relationships.

"She should keep her mouth shut about who other people are dating. She wouldn’t like it if people knew the real story of her and [her ex]. If someone went to the media with all the real information about her relationship and all the cheating and the STDs and the abortions, she’d be curled up in a corner, crying, cutting herself, and drinking herself into a coma."

We don’t think The Sniffer would be cool with that.

Brendan Dassey Headed to Wrestlemania

By now you have probably read that the conviction of one of the subjects of Netflix's Making a Murderer, Brendan Dassey, has been overturned.

But the huge WWE wrestling fan just received some great news - Wrestler xHamster is going to get Dassey to Wrestlemania, provided he is out of jail. xHamster released the following statement, as reprinted by E! News:

"We are pleased that we can make this young man's dream of going to Wrestlemania come true. We have been in talks with the family and they are more than thrilled that Brendan will get this opportunity after so many years of heartache and injustice. We are waiting on a response from Brendan and we know he will be thrilled that he is going to Wrestlemania when he gets out."

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Tension After Bad Breakup

Usher Talks Justin Bieber's Peen

Usher recently appeared on the Howard Stern show, where he was asked about his protege Justin Bieber's naked pictures hitting the Internet. Here's what he had to say, as reprinted by E! News:

"He does have a brain of his own. He listen he has a mind of his own. What he chose to do with his penis is his prerogative you know what I'm saying. He's managing that aspect of his life. I have nothing to do with Justin Bieber's private parts."

On whether or not the Biebs listens to Usher anymore:
"I mean as a mentor, as he's has accepted my opinion, I can give my perspective. He's like a child to me so I don't necessarily feel like his business. I feel like I'm talking to someone who has had hardships. Like, if your child ever has difficulties...anyone listening understands that nobody's perfect. You're going to have moments and when he does I can only show him the reality of what it is that has happened."

DMX is a Daddy for the 15th Time

Yes, you read that correctly. TMZ reports that rapper DMX, 45, just welcomed his 15th child. It's his first with this baby mama, longtime girlfriend Desiree. The couple have named their new son Exodus Simmons. DMX was previously married to Tashera Simmons for 11 years, which accounts for a bunch of his children, but he cheated on her constantly, which accounts for the rest. DMX tried filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to dodge his child support payments in 2013, but the case was thrown out. Looks like his monthly payments just went up. Looks like it's way past time for someone to get snipped!

Thomas Gibson's Secret Divorce
