She was with Kristen on the set most days and seemed to have fun. Kristen also seemed very happy with Stella around. They weren’t affectionate, but definitely acted very friendly and like they had the best time hanging out. Stella seems very easy going. She is always very smiley and has a cute personality.”

Blind Gossip Exclusive Blind Item - Fighting Over Santa Claus

This is about a young male singer and the discussion he had with a girl he wanted to marry… and the girl’s mother.

The Singer and The Daughter – who is also a celebrity – had been dating for a while, and the three of them began discussing where the relationship was going.

"They had a conversation about the couple’s future and children. They discussed how many children they would have, their names, etc. Then the topic changed to what religion their children would follow."

The Mother knew The Singer was from a mixed religious background. She had always made sure that her kids had big holiday celebrations. For example, Christmas was a huge deal in their household, with a large tree and presents and Santa Claus. She wanted to know if those traditions would continue if the couple married.

The Singer said “No.”

A discussion – and then an argument – ensued about religion and culture and traditions.

"[The Daughter] tried to intervene, telling [The Singer] that her mother was simply caught off-guard and that she just wanted her family’s traditions to continue. [The Singer] said that the mother was very happy to use him for his celebrity, but that when it came down to real issues – like marriage and grandchildren – she would never really accept him and his religion."

It soon devolved into name-calling, with The Mother and The Singer each accusing the other of being insensitive and a bigot, and The Daughter unable to bring them together. Everybody walked away from the conversation either angry or crying.

So, if you ever wondered whether religion was an issue for this young couple… the answer is a definite “Yes”!

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Botox Queen

This is one of the most embarrassing plastic surgery situations I've been told about.

This C/B-list television actress has been trying to increase Botox appointments lately and actually got TURNED DOWN by the doctor. 

'He even felt she was having it done too regularly,' whispers a source close to the doc. 'Everyone knows she's his client, so he thought if she started looking freakish that it would damage his reputation. He fully expects her to go with someone else now.'

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Andrew Garfield Talks Weight Loss

Andrew Garfield recently spoke to E!'s Marc Malkin about losing 40 pounds for his role in the new movie Silence. Here's what he had to say:

"It's not fun. But ultimately [it's] very very satisfying and fulfilling. You learn a lot of information from emptying out."

On his appearance being startling in the movie:
"I think it has to be. It's the truth of what these guys would have gone through."

On going on a silent retreat in Wales to prepare for the role:
"It's a wonderful thing. Just after about three days everything shifts. Your central nervous system just kind of settles down and it becomes normal. You go into all these meditation and prayer rooms and the quiet in there is the loudest think you've ever fucking heard. It's crazy. You literally go in there and your ears start ringing. it's the purest silence that you could know. I've done a few of these things in the past on my personal time. I love all this spiritual exploration stuff. I'm fascinated by it."

Kate Beckinsale Opens the Ex Files

Kate Beckinsale recently sat down for an interview with ES Magazine. Here's what she had to say:

On remaining close to ex Michael Sheen:
 “It’s so normal for us. We split up ages ago. We have been not together far longer than we were ever together. But I really love him and like him and we make each other roar with laughter. I really love his girlfriend (Sarah Silverman) as well and we are lucky we both get on, and Lily gets on great with her — having as many strong females in your teenage daughter’s life as possible is a good thing,”

On whether or not she would stop her daughter from becoming an actress:
“That would be like sitting there with a glass of wine and saying you can’t have a drink. I can see why she wants to do it. I don’t love the downside of it for my baby. But it’s not like she hasn’t seen her parents having a real experience of what it’s like.”

Nico Tortorella Talks Bad Breakup (With Alcohol)

Nico Tortorella recently wrote an essay about getting sober for The Berry, where he framed the issue as a breakup. Here is an excerpt:

"I have an ex-boyfriend who almost killed me. I loved him more than anything in the whole world. We spent a decade together. January 13th, 2017 will mark two years since the clean break. Not a single day goes by that I don’t think about him. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss him. He made me a happy man for so long, until he didn’t. He was electric, high voltage, still is. An escape. A poison that once ran through my veins. No one person to blame. Oh, I forgot to tell you his name. Alcohol, his name is alcohol.

I first met him when I was a kid. He was good friends with everyone in my family. I literally grew up in a bar, it was the family business. I had seen his power first hand as well as his weaknesses. I remember our first kiss like it was yesterday. When no one was looking I snuck one sip, one fucking sip of that Pabst Blue Ribbon and I knew. I was in love. However, it wasn’t until high school that we really started to get to know one another well.

...One late night he and I were downtown Chicago (I grew up in the northern suburbs) getting lit. He sure did always have a way of lighting up a room. We were playing one of his favorite games – quarters. The object is to slam a quarter on the table and try to perfectly float it in the cup. For some reason that night we were playing it with bottle caps instead of coins. I went to chug what was left in his cup and unknowingly swallowed the bottle cap. The metal ridges sliding down my throat, I was terrified. I immediately went to try and throw up but the pain was to extreme.

...With him, I’ve embarrassed myself and the people I love more times than I can count. I’ve been locked out of my house, passed out in places no one should ever see, been arrested for public urination, and pissed the bed weekly. I fell off the boardwalk on Fire Island and was covered in poison oak, got a head full of dread lock extensions, terrible tattoos and been thrown out of respectable establishments, hotels, and family members’ homes. I’ve brought people down with me, broken hearts and destroyed some incredible relationships. He introduced me to cocaine who is actually the Devil himself. With his bare hands he ripped my heart out of my chest and spit on it. I’ve hurt myself, contemplated suicide, and had some of the best nights of my life. That’s his problem, one minute he’s the sexiest person in the world. Statuesque. The next you want him dead.

...After a long 10 years together, much of which I don’t remember as I am a blackout pro, I ended the relationship. Kicking and screaming. It was the single most important decision I’ve ever made. January 13th, 2015 is the day I was born again. My life, my career, myself, love and acceptance, my truest form became. Arrived. I have arrived and you’re crazy if you think I’m going anywhere but up. I didn’t go to AA more than a couple of times. I instead I turned to literature, specifically Helen Schuman’s A Course in Miracles. I turned to friends, the ones I had left. I turned to family members and I turned inwards. I turned to juice cleanses, to working out, and to taking care of myself. I turned to love. I returned to me. Thank God I did. Thank fucking God I did..."

More Pitt Jolie Custody Dramz

Speaking of beating a dead horse, Us Weekly reports that Brad Pitt got his feelings hurt by Angelina Jolie outmaneuvering him in the press, and has now filed additional documents stating that Jolie is "determined to ignore even agreed upon standards relating to the children's best interest [while] attempting to clear the way to put in the public eye any allegations she can, without regard to the impact on the minor children, expos[ing] the children by making public the names of their therapists and other mental health professionals.”

Jolie's team clapped back, stating that she has already signed off on a privacy agreement, and calling Pitt's statement "just a smear tactic": "In the agreement, Brad wanted to protect information about not only the kids but himself and Angelina agreed to it. They just signed that document so this supplemental filing makes no sense when they already have a signed document."

Face it, Pitt. You lost. Angelina is miles better at this than you are. Walk away while you still have some dignity.

Depp Heard Divorce Still Messy

Just when you thought it was over, the hot mess that is the Depp Heard Divorce has risen for one last horrible gasp like the bad guy in a horror movie. Us Weekly reports that Depp's legal team has demanded that Heard pay $100,000 to cover his attorney fees that arose from the last time Heard dragged their messy never-ending divorce to court. Laura Wasser had this to say in the filing:

“The impact of her relentless pursuit on Johnny — the damage her false allegations have caused his personal and professional reputation, his and his family’s emotional well-being, and his finances — appears to be of no interest to Amber.” The filing also accuses Amber of violating the terms of the couple's confidentiality agreement "almost weekly."

Heard's attorney Pierce O'Donnell responds by saying, "After his string of recent setbacks at the box office, I’m glad that Johnny Depp seems to have rediscovered his comic touch with this laughable motion. It is just another lame attempt by Mr. Depp and his team to not pay my client the money she is owed. We look forward to prevailing in court —and to getting sick children and women in need the money that Mr. Depp is denying them.”

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Merry Topless Christmas

This very pretty, under-30 actress is most well-known for her starring role in a TV series that has wrapped.

While most people are focused on wrapping Christmas gifts, her very unpleasant Christmas surprise will be the unveiling of topless selfies of her on the internet.

She may try to claim it’s not her, but that would make her a liar. The tattoo and moles provide an easy match.

She alternatively may try to claim she was hacked, but that would be a lie, too. We happen to know that she took the photos for her musician ex-boyfriend but they got “recirculated.” Her current boyfriend will certainly not be too happy about that.

Stop sending racy photos of yourself over the internet, people!

Emma Stone Overcomes Anxiety

Emma Stone recently sat down for an interview with Rolling Stone. Here are some of the highlights:

On suffering from panic attacks when she was a kid:
"My brain naturally zooming 30 steps ahead to the worst-case scenario. When I was about seven, I was convinced the house was burning down. I could sense it. Not a hallucination, just a tightening in my chest, feeling I couldn't breathe, like the world was going to end. There were some flare-ups like that, but my anxiety was constant. I would ask my mom a hundred times how the day was gonna lay out. What time was she gonna drop me off? Where was she gonna be? What would happen at lunch? Feeling nauseous. At a certain point, I couldn't go to friends' houses anymore – I could barely get out the door to school."

On overcoming anxiety with the help of a therapist:
"It helped so much. I wrote this book called I Am Bigger Than My Anxiety that I still have: I drew a little green monster on my shoulder that speaks to me in my ear and tells me all these things that aren't true. And every time I listen to it, it grows bigger. If I listen to it enough, it crushes me. But if I turn my head and keep doing what I'm doing – let it speak to me, but don't give it the credit it needs – then it shrinks down and fades away."

On how acting helped ease her anxiety:
"I started acting at this youth theater, doing improv and sketch comedy. You have to be present in improv, and that's the antithesis of anxiety." 

On LA (she now lives in New York City):
"It's what I imagine D.C. is like, where you're surrounded by all these people who are constantly rising and falling in the local power rankings, and it's the only thing they can think and talk about."

On the election:
"It's still so hard to process what happens next, or what to do. It's terrifying, the not-knowing. But I can't stop thinking about vulnerable people being ignored and tossed aside – marginalized more than they've already been for hundreds of years – and how the planet will die without our help. It comes in waves."

Tamara Tattles Exclusive Blind Item - Grey Skies Are Gonna Clear Up! Put On A Happy Face!

This housewife, let’s call her Big Em, seems to have a new business franchise. She’s practically running a bed and breakfast for displaced cast members. Currently, another housewife, let’s call her Little Em is shacked up with her in her formerly luxurious abode.

The arrangement seemed to be mutually beneficial when the boarder moved in a couple of months ago. After all, the two have a lot in common. Their biggest commonality is their major contributions to devastating divorces that caused a sudden loss of status in their community. A close friendship between these two would seem likely.

HOWEVER, since winter has arrived, the boarder is wishing she had a bit more meat on her bones. Like a scene out of a movie, the two are often milling about in their winter outerwear. As usual, the address may be good, but the living conditions are unbearable.


Also eerily similar to the movie, Big Em is regaling Little Em with stories of glory days gone by. A lot. They become more glamorous with each frequent retelling.

In yet another, “you can’t make this up” twist, Little Em, is staying in Big Em’s daughter’s bedroom despite having other options.

Little Em is looking forward to heading off to warmer climes.  At least for the holidays.

Jill Kargman Talks New Book

Odd Mom Out star Jill Kargman has written a new book, titled Sprinkle Glitter on My Grave. She recently sat down for an interview with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about the book, and Odd Mom Out. Here are some of the highlights:

On her book versus her show

"The show is based on my life, but it’s a diluted version of me. I’m not allowed to curse [in it], and there are certain topics I’m not allowed to get into. But the book is more a balsamic reduction of me. Sprinkle Glitter on My Grave is an appreciation for how fragile life is. These stories were kind of clawing their way out of me. This isn’t a self-help book at all, but you come away from it feeling like everything’s going to be OK."

On the book’s title

"The genesis of the title came from my aunt’s funeral — she died because of a horrific, fluke accident during a routine colonoscopy on her 50th birthday. But when we went to the cemetery, my daughter Ivy noticed the flowers on the graves and they were kind of wilting, so she said, 'Why do people put flowers on people’s graves? They die so quickly and that’s so depressing.' And I said, 'I think they represent life and it’s a tradition, it’s a little bit of color....' But she said, 'I think that’s a dumb tradition. When you die, I’m going to sprinkle glitter on your grave because you’re fabulous and it’s very hard to clean up.' And I was like, 'Thanks, Ivy.'"

On midlife crises
"For me, it was when I was 34 and was diagnosed with stage three melanoma and had all the lymph nodes ripped out of my vag and my doctors at Sloan-Kettering said that if you hadn’t caught this when I did — if it had just been three or six months later — I would have been dead within three years. So I chopped my hair, got a gun, started shooting at a shooting range, got some tattoos — I was feeling very much like my life was out of control and I wanted to do anything I could to control things, which of course you can never do."

On how having cancer affects her definition of beauty
"This is going to sound weird, but I think scars are hot. I went to a dermatologist who saw my nine-inch scar and said, 'I have a great plastic surgeon who could help you with that,' but it didn’t even cross my mind to get rid of it. I was like, 'That’s OK — I love my scar.' Scars are a memento that you’ve been through something and a reminder on your body that you should appreciate how lucky you are.


"I like crow’s feet, too — I’ve had people offer to Botox them, but I’m like nope, I like that I have evidence of all my laughter. I laugh a lot; it’s a badge of honor. Where my vanity comes in is when I look really tired — that just means I’m stupid and I need to get more sleep. I have to get up at 7a.m., so I try to go to bed at 11 but it doesn’t always happen. So I harvest sleep on the weekends — I take a two-hour nap every Saturday, and I know there’s going to be wine when I wake up."

I was supposed to control the costumes, I was told that I could do the design aspect of it, that’s kind of the reason why I agreed to do it. That didn’t happen. It wasn’t collaborative like a choreographer on a film set. … I was so confused by it. It was like The Hunger Games. It was all a popularity contest. It was awful. I was so glad to get kicked off.”

The couple posed for photos with the children, and sang Christmas carols. At last month's UNICEF Snowflake Ball, Perry had this to say of Bloom and charity:

"It's so funny: He was the previous award recipient. He's just got the most kind heart ever. I try to take my light—whatever kind of global light of I have, whether it's on social media or any kind of influence—I try and steer that to what those people need and just bring awareness. This is just the beginning, and I'm really honored."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Christmas Tea

It seems like only yesterday that we were telling you that this rich boy’s family is not happy about his actress girlfriend. She simply lacks the dignity and gravitas that is essential to their very existence.

We also told you that they were not happy about the nude photos. Right after that, we received a few emails yelling at us and claiming that there were absolutely no nude photos of her anywhere.

You believe us now, right? And now maybe you’ll believe us when we tell you that there are MORE photos – and a video – out there.

This actress is certainly proud of her birthday suit. And she is easily identifiable in some of the photos and video.

Despite the clarity of many of the images, however, they are not exactly something she’d want to share with his family over Christmas tea. Finger sandwiches, anyone?

Page Six Blind Item - Detailed Scenes

(Repeating the introduction in case you are reading this blind before the earlier one)

A dominatrix has revealed how Hollywood insiders get their kinky kicks without getting caught.

“Mistress Scarlett,” aka Jenny Nordbak, tells Page Six that dozens of members of LA’s creative class — from household-name musicians to famous screenwriters and even A-list actors — have hired her to whip, beat and bind them, and play out their fantasies.

Nordbak, who’s hung up her spikes and will publish a memoir, “The Scarlett Letters,” in April, says, “When you’re at the more exclusive private fetish play parties, that’s [when] you start to see more [famous people], and I did see more celebrities in that sphere.”

New Blind starts here:

Another client was a Hollywood screenwriter.

“He just had these super-elaborate, over-the-top, detailed scenes that he would want to play out … that was fun because you don’t usually get that amount of imagination,” said Nordbak. “He’s like, ‘I am the maharaja!’ and he’s in full costume; like a whole production.”

Cindy Crawford Talks Aging Again

Cindy Crawford recently sat down for an interview with NewBeauty, where she talked about aging in the public eye. Here's what she had to say:

"No matter what I do, I'm not going to look 20, or 30. I just want to look great for 50. I exercise, eat healthy and take really good care of my skin. There's pressure on women to do the undoable, which is not age. But it's about looking great for however old you are, regardless of what that number is...I don't need everyone on Instagram pointing out that I don't look the same way I did when I was 20. I know that. Sometimes when you're in the public eye, it can be hard, and that's where you kind of have to work on yourself."

On how her face has changed:
"Everyone thinks about your face and the actual texture of the skin. But Dr. Sebagh (Crawford's anti-aging skin guru) always talks about how skin ages in three different ways, and the first one I saw was a change in volume. I have a very round face, and over the years, it's like all of a sudden, I've got serious cheekbones that can make my face look severe if I'm not careful. My face doesn't have a lot of lines yet because I really take care of my skin. In some ways, I have more confidence about my skin at 50 than I did in my 20s."

On unexpected aging:
"Some things you expect, like gray hair. But what I wasn't expecting was the texture of my hair to change so much. It's gotten much coarser over the years. I look at my daughter and I'm always like, 'You have my old hair and I want it back!' Her hair looks great even if she goes to sleep with it wet. She wakes up in the morning and it's just like perfect and I'm jealous of that. I think the sanest way to age is to accept it."

Note that ex-husband Marc Anthony has recently officially filed for divorce from his latest wife, and some outlets are reporting that he is trying desperately to woo J Lo back. I wonder where Marc Anthony will be spending New Year's Eve?

Reports are surfacing linking J Lo to Drake, who always has a beard. On his face. You were thinking something else, weren't you?



Richard Marx Is a Badass

There's a sentence I bet you never thought you'd read! TMZ reports that Richard Marx and wife Daisy Fuentes were recently on a flight from Vietnam to South Korea en route back the US, where a passenger became out of control. Korean Air flight attendants seemed to be at a loss as to how to deal with the unruly passenger, so badass Richard Marx stepped up and physically subdued the man for four hours. The attacker managed to injure two passengers and a crew member, but not Richard Marx, who is gentle of voice but strong of arm. The passenger was arrested by Seoul police when the plane landed. One could say that the police were right there waiting for him.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Same Name Blames the Audience

Now that his show is not receiving the ratings that he thinks it should, this talk show host is blaming… the audience! However, those around him think that he has no one to blame but himself.

"He’s a comedian. He knows that if you do character comedy, you give the character their own ID (like Sacha Baron Cohen with Borat or Paul Reubens with Pee Wee Herman). However, he has a big ego and he decided to use his own name for the character.

That was a mistake because when he moved to [the new project] and tried using the same name with a a different personality, people got confused. He is blaming the audience for “not being smart enough” to “get it.” LOL. He has no one to blame but himself. His ego may have just cost him his show."

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Christmas Separated

Who doesn't love Christmas? It's time to overeat and under exercise, as well as catch up with distant loved ones and spend time with close by ones.

We hear that this A-list couple won't be doing any of that this Christmas.

'They're both working and will be apart,' whispers the gossiper with a wink. 'How convenient for them.'

So, tell me Gossipers:

Who are our couple?

Well, Tristan has been dating Khloe Kardashian, 32, since September. Awkward. A source says that the pair has said "I love you" to each other. Is the source in high school? So awkward.

Tamar Braxton Opens Up About "The Real" Exit

Tamar Braxton recently appeared on the syndicated T.D. Jakes, where she opened up about her departure from The Real. Here's what she had to say, as reprinted by E! News:

"That was just devastating to me because that was my baby. I loved it. I loved the women on the show. I loved showing up at work every single day. I loved interviewing other people because I've always been on the other side. That is something that definitely broke my heart, probably my spirit. But the good thing is I got a chance to pay attention to my spirit and that's something I never really did before."

On her faith:
"I would have to really pray about it and think about it because at the end of the day I have to pay attention to why God removed me from that situation. I believe he removed me from that situation to protect me from that situation."

On The Real's ratings decline since Tamar's departure:
"Ain't that terrible Lord Jesus."




Colton Haynes Opens His Journal To Help With Mental Health

Actor Colton Haynes recently shared two journal passages with Paper Magazine as a mental health check in; one from two years ago, and one from last month. Below is the excerpt from last month.

"NOV. 12th, 2016

Sitting on my couch in my new home by the beach. Looking through old photos and remembering how different life used to be. I'm often called "Miss Memory Lane" by my closest friends due to the fact that I always look at old photos hoping to relive the memory. But what I'm finally realizing is that I can't and wouldn't want to go back to that headspace ever again. So clouded and unsure about myself, my life, my privacy, my mental health. I'm finally in a position where I can say I'm the happiest I've ever been. I've accomplished so much with so little and my smile is finally not forced. I've taken control of my own life for the first time and won't ever let anyone silence me or my passions ever again. I'm finally free. I'm successful. I'm independent. I'm still short but that won't change lol. I think I'm funny even if others don't haha. But most of all...I'm outspoken.

Don't be afraid to seek help. There are so many people out there who put their jobs first and their mental health last...and trust me...it will creep up on you. There are so many amazing people out there who can help with anxiety and other mental health issues...please don't be afraid and know that it gets better."

The 2016 Word of the Year is...

Surreal. The Hollywood Reporter announces that Merriam-Webster has declared Surreal the word of the year for 2016. The word of the year is chosen by year-over-year growth and spikes in look-ups of words to determine the winner. Surreal is defined as "marked by the intense irrational reality of a dream" or "unbelievable, fantastic." Runners-up for word of the year include "bigly" and "deplorable."

Oxford's word of the year was "Post-truth," while Dictionary.com's was "Xenophobia."

Anyone want to start taking bets on what the word of the year will be for 2017?
