Blind Gossip Blind Item - Band Couple Update

Fans used to guess that these two band mates were in a romantic relationship.

The fans were absolutely correct!

What the fans may not know is that there was a big and ongoing problem throughout their relationship.

The Taller One – who is rather flirty and charming – wanted to play up the relationship in public. Taller did not necessarily want to come out, but he did want to keep things fun, both  between them as a couple and between them and the fans.

Shorter, on the other hand, did NOT want to take the relationship public! He is a fun guy, but he started freaking out when people began catching on that he and Taller were dating. He wanted everything kept private.

This difference of styles and opinions created a lot of conflict between the two and led to their eventual demise as a couple.

Their current relationship is very strained. Shorter still gets really upset whenever people try to talk to him about his relationship with Taller. The two do have some professional obligations together, but outside of that, they hardly speak. Everyone around them finds that really sad, especially since they used to be so close.

The Shorter One continues to really struggle with his sexuality. He doesn’t want other people to think that he’s gay. That’s why he always tries to have a girlfriend around.

This denial isn’t helping Shorter’s mental state, either. He uses various substances to cope with his distress… and he’s had at least two complete mental breakdowns since 2012.

While we have no control over the decisions they make, we can’t help but think that if BOTH of them came out, they could get back together and be genuinely happy and healthy together. At the end of the day, wouldn’t that be just perfect?

The Gossip Life Blind Item - No Gold Digger

Sorry to disappoint you, Kanye and Jamie, but this C-list wife is no gold digger!

She was a little known model before she married this A-list entity. People have accused her of being a gold digger and having a shallow marriage based purely on the exchange of money and sex, but according to a source very close to the situation the marriage is very much legit and content.

'There's no politicking here,' reports my source. 'He provides her with emotional security and she calms him down. It's the perfect marriage that works well for both of them. Everything else is just a bonus. It's by far his best marriage.'

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is the C-list model wife?

Who is the A-list entity?

Mel Brooks Is Still Awesome

Mel Brooks, 90, recently sat down for an interview with the LA Times where he talked about his new book Young Frankenstein: A Mel Brooks Book: The Story of the Making of the Film. Here are some of the highlights:

In the foreword to the new book, Judd Apatow says “Young Frankenstein” is a perfect comedy. Directors often see flaws in their own films that the audience doesn’t. How does the movie look to you today?
"You know, strangely enough, contrary to what you said, when I saw it yesterday on a big screen, I thought it was better than the first rough screening of it 40-something years ago when I was a nerdy kid."

Watching it on the big screen gives you an even greater appreciation for Gene Wilder’s performance.
 "His performance is absolutely Promethean. It’s his very best work in film.

Gene was essentially really reticent and shy and when he broke out, he broke out like a volcano. He never just eased out of being mousy and quiet — he busted out like it was Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and suddenly this new person would be yelling and commanding our attention. He did that beautifully in “Young Frankenstein.”"

You made three movies with him — “The Producers,” “Blazing Saddles” and “Young Frankenstein” — but at a certain point later in his career, he essentially stopped making comedies because he felt they were becoming too crass and vulgar. Was that something you two ever discussed?
"He told me when we were working on “The Producers,” “I love this picture — there’s not a dirty word in it. We’re getting laughs on story and characters. We’re not getting laughs on sexual innuendo and dirty stuff.” I said, “I never even thought of it that way.”

Gene was kind of naïve, kind of an innocent, and when movies rested on profanity, he was upset…. But you know, everybody blames all the questionable, dirty stuff on me, but Gene Wilder came up with “What knockers!” [in “Young Frankenstein.”] You can blame that on him. Sweet, innocent Gene!"

The book has lots of great stuff from the Fox archives, but is there anything that’s lost forever that you wish you’d held onto?
"I wish I had kept all the scribbles on legal pads that led to the scripts.
It would be a goldmine for screenplay-writing students to see what incredible changes characters and stories go through before they become the screenplay. It’s quite a toboggan ride down a steep hill trying to write a script."

Last month, you were among those awarded the National Medal of Arts and Humanities by President Obama. I imagine he isn’t the first president you’ve met.
"No, I’ve got to tell you, when they had the Kennedy Center awards for performing arts, I was offered it when [George W.] Bush was president after the Iraq war started and I said, “No, I’m going to wait for another president.” And I did. It was worth the wait. It was a great night."

Speaking of presidential politics, I wonder what the 2,000-Year-Old Man would make of this year’s election and Donald Trump.
"You can’t get that out of me. I promised Carl [Reiner] I’d never do it without him. The “I wonder” was a great end run around it, but you can’t sneak that one in."

You recently turned 90 and you still stay incredibly busy with various projects. Why not relax and play golf?
"Well, first of all, I don’t know how to play golf. I could play tennis if it was triples — not doubles but if there were three on each side, I could cover my spot.

I’ve been going around the country, showing “Blazing Saddles.” People know the movie so well, they shout out lines like they were doing their bar mitzvah or something, and after I take questions and tell some intimate stories about the making of the movie. 

I can’t tell you anything else, except if I get another idea and people are crazy enough to risk money on me, I’ll do it."

Garbage - Magnetized

Naughty Gossip Blind Item - Which Funny Host Admits He Has Slept With Two Guests?

The TV host is known for being very funny, but he’s also known for getting it on with the beautiful women that come on his show as guests.

“He visits them backstage after each taping in the dressing rooms and that is where the magic happen,” sources tell NAUGHTY GOSSIP. “Each dressing room has drinks and snacks in them, but they also have condoms. Everyone in the business knows what he is like and pray that after the show they DO NOT get a knock, knock, on the door at the taping.”

He brags about having sex with two A-LIST guests, but everyone is sure that he has been with more!

Jon Hamm Reflects on Rehab, Talks Children

Jon Hamm recently sat down for an interview with Mr. Porter Journal. Here's what he had to say:

On rehab:

“It has all these connotations, but it’s just an extended period of talking about yourself. People go for all sorts of reasons, not all of which are chemically related. But there’s something to be said for pulling yourself out of the grind for a period of time and concentrating on recalibrating the system. And it works. It’s great.”

On the prospect of having children:
“I don’t know. I don’t think it’s necessarily an imperative. I’m not going to psychoanalyse myself here, but… well, never say never. I’ve got nieces and nephews and I’ve been a teacher. I’ve probably been around kids a lot more than all my friends. I feel if you shut that off entirely you calcify. You turn into that guy.”

On social media:
“I speak to young kids starting out and they can’t even get into an audition unless they have a certain number of followers on Instagram. Of course, it doesn’t mean anything – you can go out and buy 100,000 followers. But it becomes meaningful if business decides it’s meaningful. In time there will be a correction and we will look back on this period and say, ‘Wow. We were really dumb.’”

On therapy:
“After I’d lost my dad, I had this horrible paralysing inertia – and no one in my family was capable of dealing with it. So what do you do? Go and see a professional. I preach it from the mountaintops. I know it’s a luxury and it’s not something everyone can afford. But if you can, do it. It’s like a mental gym.”

On style:
“I don’t share a lot of sartorial clues with Mr Draper, other than we’re the same suit size, but it did open my eyes to buying clothes that fit properly. I generally try and dress a little more appropriate to my age. It’s epidemic out here. So often I’m like, ‘What are you wearing? You have an Ed Hardy T-shirt and a wallet chain and biker boots and you’re 65 years old?’”

On competing for roles:
“From a features standpoint, it’s really difficult to get hard dramas made if you’re not Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Denzel Washington or Ben Affleck. That’s what those boys do and there are only so many slots. There are five or six leads who get the first look and if you’re lucky you might get a second. But hope springs eternal around this time of year. We’re done with the capes and tights and laser beams and we’re starting to see the serious movies that are up for awards.”

Lenny Letter Blind Item - The Director

Written by Jenni Konner:

"Last night, after wrap on location, Lena and I and a few co-workers went into town to eat. We ran into a small portion of the crew of another TV show that shoots nearby and introduced ourselves. Within five minutes, a producer/director of that show had cornered Lena. Though the rest of us were are all in vaguely separate conversations, we were able to hear what was said.

Within five minutes, a producer/director of that show had cornered Lena.

Or shown in this case: an iPhone photo of a mutual friend with a cock next to her face, ostensibly a still from his TV show but shown at a completely inappropriate time. It saddens me to say this isn't the part of the story that even upset me. This is fairly common behavior with strangers and Lena. In my most generous moments, I can see their nervousness, their familiarity with her frank sexual work, and their desire to make a connection. Our Girls writer Sarah Heyward said to the director, "Of course, that's the only kind of picture you can show Lena Dunham."

From here things really started to devolve. The director asked Lena to have dinner alone the following night with an actress on the show he works on. Not because he thought they should meet, but because he wanted Lena to persuade the actress to "show her tits, or at least some vag" on TV. Surely Lena could make a compelling argument. After all, he continued, "You would show anything. Even your asshole."

This is something a man felt compelled to say to a Golden Globe–winning actor, showrunner, and best-selling author who just happens to be female. So it's easy to speculate what might be said to women working with him, under him, dependent on his approval. Despite Lena's obvious discomfort, he then went on to critique and crudely evaluate the bodies of all the women on his show."

Nancy O'Dell Separates From Husband

Man, it's been a hell of a week for Nancy O'Dell. She started the week with the revelation that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump once took her furniture shopping and tried to fuck her, despite the fact that she was married. And now she has announced that she has separated from husband of 12 years Keith Zubulevich. A source released the following statement to Us Weekly

“In early September, Nancy filed for legal separation from her husband after 12 years of marriage. The situation is very amicable and they still talk every day. Their top priority is their three children. [The separation] happened a month before the [Donald] Trump tape was released, and has nothing to do with that.”

The couple are parents to daughter Ashby Grace, 9. Zubulevich has two sons from a previous marriage.

Oh, and about those Trump comments, O'Dell released the following statement:

“Politics aside, I’m saddened that these comments still exist in our society at all. When I heard the comments yesterday, it was disappointing to hear such objectification of women. The conversation needs to change because no female, no person, should be the subject of such crass comments, whether or not cameras are rolling.”

La Lohan Opening a Nightclub

Yes, you read that correctly. TMZ reports that LOHAN nightclub will open this weekend in Athens, Greece, and Lindsay Lohan is part owner. Her pal Dennis Papegeorgiou is the main owner, but Lindsay is getting a big cut of the back end (ba dum tss). The decor is "abandoned factory" chic. So basically what it looks like after Lindsay Lohan comes to a nice place allegedly walks off with all the good merchandise. Allegedly. Fitting! Lohan will show up to do appearances two or three times a month, pudgy digits permitting.

David Arquette to Be a Father Again

Page Six reports that David Arquette, 45, and wife Christina McLarty, 35, are expecting their second child together. The are already parents to son Charlie, 2, and will be welcoming another baby boy soon. Arquette also shares daughter Coco, 12, with ex-wife Courteney Cox.

I'm guessing this B/C-list reality star like to limbo because he spends a lotta time on the 'down low.' 

This comes to us from a very credible LA source, who tells us all about the trials and tribulations of our B/C-lister. Apparently he's been cheating on his more famous, reality star partner with a tranny [sic] in Brentwood. Naughty!

Matthew McConaughey Talks Manhood

Matthew McConaughey recently sat down for an interview with Esquire Magazine. Here's what he had to say:

On criticism of his Lincoln commercials:
" 'You just won an Oscar. What are you doing, doing a Lincoln commercial?' Fuck that. Because I'm going to. And I like 'em . . .and they pay well. And they allow me to go and do these other little movies for a lot less."

On deciding to do True Detective:
"Man, it's TV. Do you really want to do TV? This story is fucking great. Yes."

On staying true to himself:
"I didn't grow up acting. I don't enjoy thespian, Hamlet-ian talks. I was the first frat boy in the University of Texas film school who wore button-down denim shirts, boots, and a buckle when all the Gothic artists were all in black. I went to see the big Hollywood pictures at the cineplex that everyone else in film class shat on. And for a while I thought maybe you really do need to wear all black and stay out of the sunlight and only see independent films to be an artist. I still have moments with acting where I'm like, I'm getting away with it. Winning the Oscar was validation, the respect of my peers."

On using his brother Rooster as the inspiration for Wooderson in Dazed and Confused:
"I'm in the back of my mom's car when Mom's going to high school to pick up my brother. I'm eleven. We pull into the high school, and I see my brother leaning against the wall in the smoking section, smoking, knee up, looks eight feet tall and cooler than James Dean. When my parents went out of town, my brother let me drive his Z28, air induction on the hood. We'd listen to Mellencamp and we'd listen to Nugent. AC/DC never sounded better than that. That's Wooderson."

On wife Camila:
"A good woman gives a man courage and confidence—the courage to have the confidence to go and do it, to not be worried as much or consider as much what the rest of the world thinks."

On the birth of his son Levi:
"Out comes this screaming little life with a pair of balls...Man is never more masculine than after the birth of his first child. I don't mean in a macho way. I mean in terms of giving a man strength."

On his parents' marriage (they divorced and remarried, twice):
"They were wild, man. They fought. My mom broke her middle finger four times from banging my dad in the head. I've seen her stick a water hose in his car and fill it up with water. They pulled knives. I've seen tables flip. Furniture broke...Man, I tell these stories and people might get the wrong idea; they are love stories, man. They could not live without each other."

DNCE - Body Moves

Advice from Wentworth Miller

Wentworth Miller is named Man of the Year in this month's Attitude Magazine. Inside, he has some advice for anyone struggling to come to terms with their sexuality. Here's what he had to say:

"I would say what others have said: it gets better one day, you'll find your tribe. You just have to trust that people are out there waiting to love you and celebrate you for who you are. In the meantime, the reality is you might have to be your own tribe. You might have to be your own best friend. That's not something they're going to teach you in school. So start the work of loving yourself."

Joe Jonas Did a Reddit AMA

Joe Jonas recently sat down at his computer to do an Ask Me Anything on Reddit, and the results are pretty great. Here are some of the highlights:

What's it like living with your brother Nick?
"Living with my brother Nick is great because it is actually like living alone. We decided to move in together because he was out of a lease and wanted to find a new place and he convinced me by saying, "You're really bored with your place, right?" and I was like... I guess. So, I moved out and then he forgot to tell me his lease wasn't up for six months, so I was without a house for a little while. Just floating around. Then we found a place in the valley of California and it's nice because he's been traveling and I'm home alone all the time. I get this nice sized house, just chilling. Also, when he comes into town, he came into town this past weekend, our housekeeper put a bunch of his new clothes in my closet and he left town to go finish filming Jumanji, so I don't have to go shopping. I just have a bunch of Nick's free new clothes now."

How did you first respond to South Park, and how do you view the episode now that the Jonas Brothers have been broken up for a while?
"I loved it. When it first came out I was so pumped. I know that Nick was really kind of not into watching it, but I thought it was the funniest thing at the time and it's kind of a compliment because obviously if you go to a comedy show and they pick you out and make fun of you, you can't heckle back, you gotta just take it and enjoy it, and for me I've always been a fan and I knew that was kind of a wow we made it moment, and also they were kind of attacking Disney more than me, so I didn't really feel threatened. Now I watch it back and laugh and Mickey kicked my ass so I won the episode by being beat up by Mickey Mouse."

Is it true that youre the Jonas Bro thats hangin the most meat in his skinny jeans?
"I like to think so. Although, it's not often that I'm in a locker room or shower with my brothers, so I couldn't really tell you. But, I'd like the Internet to believe that I'm still killin' it."

Who did you lose your virginity to?
"I lost my virginity to this girl named Ashley. You can probably just Google it. It's pretty easy to figure out. I dated a girl named Ashley, so just Google it to figure out which Ashley that is. It's quite the great story because I didn't have any condoms, so I went to our drummer, Jack's room, who was my roommate at the time and I demolished his room looking for them. Found them underneath his underwear drawer. When he came home, he thought somebody broke into his room because his whole room was demolished because I was in dire need. Needed to happen then and now. Safety first, kids." (It's Twilight's Ashley Greene)

How do you feel when fans call you "daddy"?
"I just hope their actual father isn't reading their Twitter accounts. But I take it as a compliment...if you're old enough to say that. I think you should at least be 18 to be able to say daddy to someone."

Did you have a boner 100% of the time while filming the Body Moves music video?
"Thank you very much about saying it's tastefully sexy. There was definitely some half chubbing going on during the video. I wouldn't say a full blown boner, but I would say a haflie. I mean it's kind of hard not to in that situation especially when you're trying to be intimate, and also they put us in an elevator, me and Charlotte McKinney who I'm sure Reddit is very familiar with. They put her in an elevator with me and then they had kind of a hidden camera filming this whole time, and I had a great time doing the video.
Also, during our Toothbrush video I worked with Ashley Graham and the first thing out of her mouth - I never told anybody this - she actually said if you get a boner I'm gonna start to laugh, so that was how she broke the ice to get us comfortable on set."

Gabrielle Union Sues BET

Page Six reports that Gabrielle Union is suing BET over her show Being Mary Jane. Her lawsuit reads as follows:

“Although BET represented and assured Ms. Union before she agreed to perform in ‘Being Mary Jane’ that it would never produce more than thirteen (13) episodes per season of the series, BET now wants to shoot twenty (20) episodes of the series back-to-back and cram all of the episodes into a single season in order to fraudulently extend the term of Ms. Union’s contract, with no additional consideration, and to deprive Ms. Union of her agreed-upon compensation for the next two seasons of ‘Being Mary Jane.’ It is outrageous that BET would treat one of its biggest stars in this manner after all she has done to support the network and contribute to its success.

By way of example, for Season Four of the Series, the Agreement provides that Plaintiffs are to be paid $150,000 per episode for a minimum of thirteen (13) episodes of the Series, and for Season Five of the Series the Agreement provides that Plaintiffs are to be paid $165,000 per episode for a minimum of thirteen (13) episodes of the Series.”

Union is seeking $3 million in damages, and a declaration that BET cannot seek more that 13 episodes for any season of her show Being Mary Jane.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Casual Beards

A few years ago, this leading film actor felt compelled to have a famous beard to trot out in public. There were formal contracts and appearance schedules and scheduled paparazzi to ensure that he looked like he was in a serious relationship with a woman. It was very stressful for him.

He hasn’t done the beard contract thing in a couple of years. Now he just makes sure that he is seen on a “date” every once in a blue moon with a work colleague.

"The women don’t even have to be single. Just young and attractive enough to stir up the chatter about a possible romance. This casual approach is much less stressful for him."

The Gossip Life Blind Item - One Member and One Reason

This band is certified A-list, one of the best selling of all time. On the rungs of musical importance, they're just below the Stones and the Beetles. Fans clamoured for a reunion for years and although it seemed possible on multiple occasions, the reunion failed to happen because of one member and one reason.

Our member constantly went on a once very prominent A-list radio show, badmouthed the other members and did everything in his power to piss the fans and the record company off.

Eventually the reunion happened, but the bad feelings and heartache always lived on.

What is the band?

Who is the member?

Kardashian Korner

The Hollywood Reporter announces that Kim Kardashian is suing Media Take Out and its owner Fred Mwangaguhunga (no, that is not a typo) for claiming that Kim Kardashian "staged" and "faked" her Paris robbery in order to file a "fraudulent claim with her insurance company". The complaint reads as follows:

"After having been the victim of a horrific and traumatic armed robbery in France, Kim Kardashian returned to the United States only to again be victimized, but this time by an online gossip tabloid that published a series of articles in early October 2016 referring to her a liar and thief. Kardashian was assaulted and robbed by two masked men, who placed a gun to her head, duct-taped her hands, legs and mouth, and then left her lying helplessly on the bathroom floor of her rented apartment while the thieves absconded with millions of dollars in jewelry. As if that ordeal were not awful enough, Defendants made it worse by publishing on the Website, only hours after the assault, that Kardashian faked the robbery and then committed insurance fraud by filing a false claim with her carrier."

Kim is suing for general, special, punitive, and exemplary charges. No comment from Mwangaguhunga. 

Get it, girl! Look, I know the Kardashians are somewhat controversial, but those bitches don't fuck around when it comes to business. They are not going to "fake a robbery" for attention or storylines. Don't forget - their father was a lawyer.

Nicki Minaj Talks Goals

Nicki Minaj is on the cover of Marie Claire's November issue. Here are some highlights from her interview:

On young women's goals: "Nowadays, I feel like [young women] see marrying into money—I think that's a big thing now. I don't want that to be a woman's goal in life. I want your goal in life to be to become an entrepreneur, a rich woman, a career-driven woman. You have to be able to know that you need no man on this planet at all, period, and he should feel that, because when a man feels that you need him, he acts differently."

On competing with male rappers: "I don't need to read a book about [business]. I can look at someone's career and just pinpoint the dos and the don'ts, and the one person I've done that with for my entire career was Jay Z. He did such a great job being an authentic street guy and a businessman, and I was like, Why aren't there women doing that, taking the success from rap and channeling it into their empire? I felt like anything he could do, I could do."

On the double standard that exists for women of color in the media: "When Kim Kardashian's naked picture came out, [Sharon Osbourne] praised it, and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite. So it wasn't trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it, but it was when a black woman did it? It's quite pathetic and sad, but that is my reality, and I've gotten accustomed to just shutting it down."

On the people living with violence in our country: "We tend to not remember the black women who are mourning these men and who are thinking, Oh, my God, what am I going to tell my child now about where his father is, and the struggle it is for black women to then move on after they lose their husband or their boyfriend ... The strong women in these inner cities often go unnoticed ... no one really ever puts a hand out to them."

On collaborating with Beyoncé: "Every time Bey and I do something together, I see how women are inspired, and it has nothing to do with how we look. It has to do with how we are owning who we are and telling other women you should be the boss of your own career and the brains behind your life or your decisions or your art. I just love that feeling."

Goop Gets Bazaar

Gwyneth Paltrow is featured in this month's Harper's Bazaar. I was all ready to hate on the interview, but it's conducted by Full Frontal's Samantha Bee! So I'll try to keep an open mind. Here are some of the highlights:

Samantha Bee: "People have such an imagined version of your life. You've been so daringly open about your personal life and have revealed intimate details about parenting and your marriage that in some ways people feel like they have permission to speak personally about you. And when they do in a negative way, how do you process that?"

Gwyneth Paltrow: "When I was starting out, I would get printouts of what was being written about me that week. At first it was all good things, and then it started to turn. I very quickly learned, "This isn't good, this isn't helping me." These were strangers, and they were opining on anything in my life, from where I ate dinner to what movie I chose to do to who I was dating, and I was just like, "This isn't going to be beneficial to my process as a human being in this lifetime." But it was a very important exercise for me in terms of really understanding that one's sense of self is internal. I have had an extreme opportunity to learn that lesson, and I think it's been such a blessed fortune. Occasionally I'll come across something that's just annoying, but for the most part it's irrelevant to me."

SB: "I guess it's just a long process of cultivating that sense of self where you don't need somebody else to set the compass for you. Did your parents help instill that in you?"

GOOP: "My father was really good at having me stand on my own two feet, both financially and philosophically. His whole parenting philosophy was to give my brother and me the skills to be grown-ups and the curiosity to ask the right questions. My drive is something that I don't fully understand. I don't know if I came to this life with it or if it's something that came to me in my childhood, but I do feel that some of the things my parents said to me and how they raised me really stuck with me. I remember when I started acting and didn't get a part and was really jealous of the girl who got it. My mom would say to me, "If you don't get a part, that means it's not your part. It's just not yours. You will have your parts." It really recalibrated me at a very young age to where I could be driven because I was trying to achieve things for myself, and that had nothing to do with what anybody else was doing."

SB: "You're a very famous person. Can you walk out your front door?"

GOOP: "Yes. I've learned to navigate it. If I'm somewhere where there are a lot of tourists, then I'm
asking for it. But if I go to the market or I'm back-to-school shopping with my kids, it's not a problem. Some people ask for pictures, but it's completely fine. I'm able to be a normal mom for the most part. I'm in [clothing store] Brandy Melville like all the other moms."

SB: "When you're stressed out, what's the thing in your life that becomes a metaphor for the inner chaos?"

GOOP: "I cannot function if there is a physical mess around me. If everything is falling apart, I go on a cleaning frenzy."

SB: "Has anyone ever said anything to you that was a complete game changer?"

GOOP: "I remember when I was maybe 27 years old and kind of at the height of my movie stardom—it was around the time of the Oscar and this and that. I think I was very much believing my own hype, which how could you not? I was sitting with my dad, feeling great about my life and everything that was happening, and he was like, "You know, you're getting a little weird…You're kind of an asshole." And I was like, "What the hell?" I was totally devastated. But it turned out to be basically the best thing that ever happened to me. It's the difference between someone who loves you more than anything in the world giving you criticism and getting it from some bitter stranger on the Internet. What my dad said to me was the kind of criticism where I was like, "Oh, my God, I'm on the wrong track." I'm so grateful to him for doing that. He was such a no-nonsense guy in that sense."

SB: "When I was a teenager, somebody said that to me. I hope nobody says that to me ever again."

GOOP: "They won't because you're past 40, and by 40, all women are amazing."

SB: "The deal is sealed."

GOOP: "And if you're an asshole at that point, then guess what?"

SB: "It's over."

GOOP: "It's over. If you haven't taken all of life's incredible knocks and disappointments and used them to become a fully integrated, self-expressing person by the time you're 40, then what can I tell you?"
