The Deaner's In Trouble

Page Six reports that Dean McDermott, husband of Tori Spelling, was in a Los Angeles court on Thursday where he was told that if he doesn't fork over the thousands in child support that he owes ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace, he could be playing "don't drop the soap" in jail. Eustace agreed to work out a payment plan with The Deaner, which took jail time off the table - for now. Dean has to pay Eustace half the cash that he owes her by Monday. I hope she's not holding her breath. Insiders say that if he doesn't cough up the dough on Monday, Eustace is fully prepared to file a new complaint with the court on Tuesday to send The Deaner to jail.

Jim Parrack is Back on the Market

Us Weekly reports that True Blood star Jim Parrack, 36, and wife Leven Rambin, 26, have split after two years of marriage. This was the second marriage for Parrack; he got engaged to Rambin shortly after his divorce from his first wife went through. Maybe third time will be the charm?

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Her Picture Perfect Marriages

We feel a little bit bad for this very famous actress. She’s had success in both TV and films, but her personal life continues to be messy.

She had a picture perfect marriage with her first husband … until he left her after falling in lust with one of his costars.

She made an attractive couple with her second husband… until we found out that he is actually a horrible cheat, too!

He is currently cheating on her with [a woman], who he met on the set of [his TV show]. It’s not serious. They’re just f*cking. I doubt [his wife] knows. She should, though. He does this all the time.

Our actress does not have an open marriage, so when she finds out about this latest betrayal, it’s really going to smart. It’s a good thing she has a close circle of female friends on whom she can rely for emotional support!

Popbitch Blind Item - Ripping Her Off For Months

Which TV and stage drama queen has called in the cops after finding out her showbiz mate has been ripping her off for months to the tune of thousands of pounds? The sneaky fraudster (himself a fellow thesp) nabbed a photo of her bank card and used the details to fund dozens of online purchases before the absent-minded actor finally clocked what was happening.

Ed Sheeran Wants That Simple Kind of Life

Ed Sheeran is on the cover of Rolling Stone; here are some highlights from the accompanying interview:

On drinking heavily while touring with Taylor Swift in 2013:
"I was on the most amazing fucking tour in the world. I was just living in a country that I didn't belong in, in a town I didn't really know anyone...I was this 22-year-old awkward British kid going on tour with the biggest artist in America, who has all these famous mates. It was very easy. … I would often find myself in situations just kind of waking up and looking over and being like, 'How the fuck did that happen?' "

On his friendship with Taylor Swift:
"She would be there if everything ended for me. Taylor is kind of an anomaly in that sense...She's omnipresent [in the press] because she's the most famous woman in the world, so she can't make the decision to not be in the press. I always stick up for Taylor."

On Twitter criticisms:
"Everyone online was saying, 'Ed's going bald.' And I'm not. But I convinced myself that I was. Ginger hair is just very fair – my hair is completely fine. I was also quite big at the time, so I kind of got a complex about two things I would have never given a fuck about."

On losing friends after appearing in Forbes, where they reported he earned $57 million in 2015 (also the reason he ditched his cell phone):
"The Forbes list actually fucked it up. I was getting texts from people with pictures of cars going, 'I'd like this for my birthday, please. This one's only .06 percent of your annual income.'"

On not being popular with critics:
"I could give a fuck about what people think. Anytime anyone has a problem with me, I'm just like, 'My heroes like me. The people I started music for are fans of my music. So why the fuck would I care about what anyone else thinks?' "

On insecurity:
"Most ginger-haired people I know are very outgoing and comedic. They basically say the joke before you can. Like, my first album is orange. There's a reason it's orange – I'm getting there before you can...The whole musician thing kind of comes from wanting to be loved and wanting to be liked."

On whether or not he drinks too much:
"Often, I'm like, 'Is it bad that I drink almost every single day?' And then I look at my friends and most of them do the same. And they're actually worse than me. The first thing Americans say is, 'There's a problem, and you need to go to rehab.' But I don't wake up and drink. I don't depend on drink. I can go without it completely. I just enjoy going out and having fun, being 25. And I think that's a normal thing."

On the future:
"It's awesome meeting famous people. But that's not life. That's not reality. One day this will fucking end. And I know the one person that's going to remain constant is Cherry. I should just enjoy this while it's there, but not let it become my reality. Because that's not the reality I want to live in."

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Not Eating Wife

To perfectly partner last night's blind item, I've obtained an equally as juicy item about another misbehaving pregnant celebrity.

Apparently this A lister husband confided in friends (and my sources) about the eating habits of his pregnant A list Mrs.

'They would expensive meals in expensive places,' says the source, 'but she wouldn't touch the food.'

'She wasn't eating,' claims another. 'He was extremely worried about everyone's well being in the situation.'

Charlie Hunnam's Sexcellent Workouts

Charlie Hunnam is on the cover of the April issue of Men's Health Magazine. Here's what he had to say in the accompanying interview:

"I'm interested in having a high fitness level across the board. Running, swimming, jumping rope, hiking, jiu-jitsu—I try to do it all. I also try to make love as often as I can. That's an important part of fitness. There's no reason you can't be active at 70. I want to run up mountains at that age...We are supposed to be very active animals. It's our DNA. Sweating is how I change my oil every day. I just feel happier, more positive, energized, and disciplined if I work out. I train a lot every day because I'm fucking crazy."

Celebrity Real Estate - Mr. T Edition

The former Chicagoland home of Mr. T has hit the market for $7.5 million. The home 14,293 square foot home, originally built in 1910, features nine bedrooms, ten bathrooms, over seven acres of land, and trees. Usually that goes without saying, but when Mr. T lived there in the 80's, he famously cut down over 100 matures trees on the property. Successive owners have restored trees to the property.

Eliza Dushku Reveals Battle with Addiction

Us Weekly reports that actress Eliza Dushku recently spoke at the New Hampshire Youth Summit on Opioid Awareness in Manchester, New Hampshire, where she revealed her own battles with addiction. Here's what she had to say:

"Something a lot of people don't know about me is that I'm an alcoholic and I was a drug addict for a lot of years. I'm always going to be that, but the difference between me and an alcoholic or a drug addict that still drinks and does drugs is that I'm sober. I don't drink and I don't do drugs anymore.

...I loved the first time I took a drug because I loved the way it made me feel. I loved the way it made me not feel — I didn't have to feel. It was fun — and I loved it — until it wasn't. Drugs didn't love me. They didn't love my family. They definitely didn't love my friends that died.

...I was depressed. I didn't like myself, but I love my family. I remember my brother telling me he didn't want me to be around my niece because he didn't trust me. I'm a really good auntie today. But you know what? He was right. I'm a good person, but when I did drugs and I drank, I didn't make good decisions.… All it takes is one bad decision. You don't have to live like that.

If you're in trouble, all you have to do is say, 'I need help.' I'm a real badass and tough girl. It was the hardest thing in the world for me to ask for help and it was the most powerful thing I've ever done."

Richard Simmons Still Fine, Still Wants to Be Left Alone

People reports that after receiving another call from a concerned citizen about Richard Simmons being held hostage by his housekeeper, the LAPD has paid another visit to Richard Simmons. Here is what Detective Kevin Becker had to say:

“There was something about his housekeeper holding him hostage and not allowing people to see him and preventing him from making phone calls and it was all garbage and that’s why we went out to see him. None of it is true. The fact of the matter is we went out and talked to him he is fine, nobody is holding him hostage. He is doing exactly what he wants to do. If he wants to go out in public or see anybody he will do that.


He is perfectly fine and he is very happy. I don’t know what he is going to do, but right now he is doing what he wants to do and it is his business...He was very nice. He was very cordial. He couldn’t have been nicer to us.”

Simmons' longtime rep Tom Estey released the following statement:

“He made a choice to take a break from public life, which he has the right to do. People need to respect that and not surmise that there’s something wrong, when there’s nothing wrong. For 40 years, he took care of everyone else but himself. And so it’s not that he’s being selfish, he’s just being a person, a regular person, taking care of himself.”

Gwyneth Paltrow Doesn't Care That You Won't Steam Your Vagina

Gwyneth Paltrow is on the April cover of Women's Health Magazine. Here are some highlights from the accompany interview:

How do you trust that your readers and customers will go where you go -- cupping, vagina steaming -- without judgment?
"They're not without judgment. When you're at the forefront of something that's new, people can get really reactive: "This is crazy! Why are you doing this?" Then, five years later, everyone's fine with it. So I have a bit of pattern recognition in hand at this point—which is helpful. Also, when someone doesn't like something you do, or doesn't share your interest in something, that doesn't have anything to do with you. One of the best things someone ever said to me was that the only time criticism hurts is if you have a judgment about yourself about that very thing. If someone's like, "You dick, you have red hair!" and you've got brown hair, it doesn't bother you. It's a blessing to be liberated from the chains of other people's perceptions of you. It's part of wellness, working at that. I've gotten to a point where I like myself. I do my best as a person. I also have nothing to hide."

You've been a thought leader in wellness—alternative health, exercise, diet, beauty—for years. How did you get interested in that in the first place?

"When my father was diagnosed with cancer in 1998, I really started to think about the link between environmental toxins and cancer. What's the impetus behind the way our bodies are no longer able to overcome all these skyrocketing diseases, from immune disorders to autism to diabetes and cancer? What is going on? I started asking questions, and the answers were and are horrifying: You look at, just for example, graphs correlating pesticide use with just about every kind of disease. It's devastating. That exploration definitely started me down the path. I want to be healthy, to feel as good as I can."

What weird emerging things are you most curious about now?
"I'm really interested in the impact of heavy metals and parasites on our bodies. [Editor's note: The aforementioned goat-milk cleanse was meant to fight the latter.] I think they're two of the biggest culprits in terms of why we feel bad. I'm knee-deep in figuring out ways to clear them from the body, looking at all sorts of potentially weird modalities."

You famously exercise almost every day. Do you like working out?

"I like feeling good, and I know I feel my best when I exercise. But it depends on the day—I definitely don't always feel like doing it. I've made it a habit, just like brushing your teeth. That's how you have to look at it. I've been a Tracy Anderson fanatic for over a decade, I'm an investor in her company, so yeah, I go every morning. I drop the kids at school, work out, go to work. I've been supplementing it a bit with lifting heavier weights lately, to deal with some lower-back-pain issues. You can't bottle a great workout."

A message from our editor-in-chief, @aklaird: "On Wednesday, we wear red. Because that’s what Women’s Health is about. Red. Strength. Empowerment. And not just on this Wednesday, when we’re celebrating strong women around the world and throughout history. But every day. When I became EIC of this brand in 2014, we had an international conference coming up, and I was asked what our signature logo color was. The assumption was pink, since Men’s Health (our older bro!) is red. No. Women’s Health is red too. Our new April issue is a visual representation of this. And it’s not because @gwynethpaltrow is in a red swimsuit. It’s because she’s bold, she says what she thinks, she isn't afraid to try new things—and that’s worth celebrating. Inside, you’ll hear from other strong women, including: *Olympian @kerrileewalsh *makeup-master-turned-wellness-pro @bobbibrown *comedian Aparna Nancherla @aparnapkin *The View cohost @sarahaines *head of global consumer marketing at Apple Music @badassboz *writers @annshoket (millennial guru!) and @janelarkworthy (Hygge master) *and so many more!"

E! News Blind Item - Jenny McCarthy's Ex

Speaking at a product launch for hair product brand Schwarzkopf Gliss' "Beautiful by Choice" campaign Tuesday, Sirius XM radio host and TV personality Jenny McCarthy opened up about a four-year toxic relationship with an ex-boyfriend, who she did not name.

"What I thought was gonna be a typical relationship, turned into a relationship that you would never think you would get yourself into. Especially me. I mean, I really consider myself to be pretty strong-willed and confident, even back then. But I did find myself being slowly manipulated in to a very, very dark, abusive—verbally abusive—relationship that could have easily killed me.

I no longer had my own thoughts. They were replaced with his thoughts about me. That I was worthless, disgusting, talent-less, ugly, fat, smelled so badly. I was no longer worthy of being kissed.

[It took] four years of excruciating, verbal abuse [to  learn what self-love means]. In that moment, I found my accountability in the hell I was living in. The path to loving yourself requires you to stop putting the blame on others and observe the choices you make that got you there. It wasn't his job to love me. It was mine. So I chose to finally get the hell out of that relationship. I chose to be powerful not powerless."

Eva Mendes is Back in Shape

Eva Mendes is on the cover of April's Shape Magazine; here are some of the highlights from the accompanying interview:

On ditching red carpets this awards season:
“What people don’t know about me is that I love being home. Instead of hitting the red carpet, I’d rather be with our girls.”


Believe in finding the One...workout
"I love doing intervals, like running and sprinting, and I see great results with that versus the 30 or 45 minutes of steady cardio I used to do on the treadmill. Between intervals, I lift weights. Right now I’m sticking to light weights because I have a herniated disc in my lower back. It’s pretty severe, and I have to work around it. I love squats, but I’ve been told that I have to do lunges instead of squats for the time being. I know a lot of people wouldn’t find that heartbreaking, but I really do!

I’m off-season right now, so I work out three days a week. But when I’m getting ready for an event or in the summer, it’s five days a week. I don’t exercise more than that though, because I see better results when my body has a rest period."

There are perks to everything—you just have to look
"In some ways, it’s been more challenging to get back in shape after my second daughter. Yet it’s not as hard as I thought it would be, because I’m always running around with the kids. I never sit down—I’m on the move all day. And I don’t keep junk food at home anymore, because I’m trying to set a good example. So there are no more Krispy Kremes for me to grab. But there is this app called Postmates that delivers whatever you want in minutes. It’s almost as bad as having the food in your kitchen. Don’t laugh, but they’re on the way here right now!"

Rely on tricks to look lit
"For me, glowing skin comes from the inside. I start to get sallow if I’m not eating well. I take fish oil supplements. And I love coconut oil. I apply it to my face. That’s my go-to. I also drink a lot of water. I always keep a bottle with me and kind of force myself to drink. My skin just looks better when I’m hydrated.

I wear makeup every day. Typically, it’s minimal—a little eyeliner, lip liner and balm, and some concealer. It takes me about five minutes to apply it. But when I get ready for an event or a dinner, I do like to take my time putting my makeup on. To me, the process of getting ready can be really, really romantic. It takes me probably 45 minutes because I go very slow.

Protein is your power
"I usually start my day with eggs. I think they’re like magic—you can do so much with them. I mostly keep it simple and have scrambled eggs and a piece of Ezekiel toast for breakfast. But if somebody brings over muffins or some other kind of delicious treat, I’ll eat that with my coffee instead. It’s a terrible way to begin my day, though. I really regret it later, because I just don’t have as much energy. I find that when I start out with the right source of protein, it definitely helps.

I grew up eating rice and beans, so I want some kind of grain in every meal. For lunch, I usually have salmon and rice or quinoa, and I try to include a salad. I’ll eat the same thing for dinner. I’m a creature of habit in that way. I don’t get bored with food. I try to think about it as fuel for my body. But what I am looking forward to is the time when dinner becomes a sit-down situation again. Right now I’m in survival mode with two babies, eating on the go.”

Gabourey Sidibe Reveals Weight Loss Surgery

People reports that Gabourey Sidibe has opened up about undergoing weight loss surgery (laproscopic bariatric surgery) in her upcoming memoir This Is Just My Face: Try Not To Stare. Here is an excerpt:

“My surgeon said they’d cut my stomach in half. This would limit my hunger and capacity to eat. My brain chemistry would change and I’d want to eat healthier. I’ll take it! My lifelong relationship with food had to change. The surgery wasn’t the easy way out. I wasn’t cheating by getting it done. I wouldn’t have been able to lose as much as I’ve lost without it.

...It has taken me years to realize that what I was born with is all beautiful. I did not get this surgery to be beautiful. I did it so I can walk around comfortably in heels. I want to do a cartwheel. I want not to be in pain every time I walk up a flight of stairs.

...I have a goal right now, and I’m almost there. And then once I’ve got it, I’ll set another. But my starting weight and my goal weight, they’re personal. If too many people are involved, I’ll shut down. I know I’m beautiful in my current face and my current body. What I don’t know about is the next body. I admit it, I hope to God I don’t get skinny. If I could lose enough to just be a little chubby, I’ll be over the moon! Will I still be beautiful then? Shit. Probably. My beauty doesn’t come from a mirror. It never will.

There’s nothing ugly about me. Anyone trying to convince me that I am — and it’s usually me — is wasting her time. I was in a war with my body for a long time. If I’d started treating it better sooner, I wouldn’t have spent so many years hating myself. But I love my body now."

Bachelor in Paradise's Tanner and Jade Are Expecting

E! News reports that Bachelor in Paradise couple Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert are expecting their first child together. The couple, married since January 2016, appeared on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars last year to work out their issues.

Scarlett Johansson Files for Divorce

They already announced their split, and now it's official. E! News reports that Scarlett Johansson has filed for divorce from husband Romain Dauriac. She released the following statement:

"As a devoted mother and private person, and with complete awareness that my daughter will one day be old enough to read the news about herself, I would only like to say that I will never, ever be commenting on the dissolution of my marriage. Out of respect for my desires as a parent and out of respect for all working moms, it is with kindness that I ask other parties involved and the media to do the same. Thank you."

Apparently Romain Dauriac didn't get that memo, because his attorney released this very verbose statement:
"Under the laws of the United States, thankfully men and women are treated the same in reference to custody. There are many cases where the fathers do a lot of traveling, and if they were to raise this same issue, you would you laugh. You can't hide behind a suit or a dress—it's what's in the best interest of the child.

[Romain] is the primary custodial parent. He wants her to be involved with her daughter, desperately, but you can't have schedules switching all the time. How do you explain that to a child? She's allowed to have her career, and there will be a certain degree of flexibility—but not to suit her schedule or Mr. Dauriac's. It will be one that suits the child.

People should have respect for their privacy, but she filed in the court system. She did. If she wants to continue to fight in the court system, she can't blame Mr. Dauriac for doing anything. She raised the issue. If the court decides it's in the best interest of the child to be flying on a plane or changing their schedule all the time then I'm going to find a new business. It's not fair to the kids or to the other parent."

Who knew Romain was such a thirsty fame heaux?

Jennifer Lopez Has a New "Boyfriend"

Jennifer Lopez's new approach to "dating" seems to be throwing a bunch of shit on a wall and seeing what sticks. Nobody bought that Drake nonsense, so now she's trying someone closer to her age, and minus any pesky gay rumours. People reports that Jennifer Lopez, 47, is now dating Alex Rodriguez, 41. Well isn't that convenient. He literally just broke up with his last rich girlfriend. There's only one way to tell if this relationship is for real - if Jennifer Lopez is sporting some new implants a few months from now.

David Letterman Speaks

David Letterman recently sat down for an interview with Vulture; here are some of the highlights:

Aside from the hunt for viral videos, it seems like late night also had a shift in its style of comedy. It moved away from the irony and sarcasm you were known for and toward something more earnest. I mean, Jay Leno would seem like a smartass now. Did you notice that shift happening?
"No, I didn’t. I was so single-minded in getting through the hour, and sarcasm is so easy. The quote is “Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit.” If you can’t think of something funny, say something sarcastic. That worked and also got me in a lot of trouble. People would accuse me of being mean. Well, yes, sarcasm probably is mean; but on the other hand, I’m just trying to get a laugh, so leave me alone. “Hey, nice shirt” — ha-ha-ha. Big, big laugh: “Nice shirt.” Good night, everybody!"

It’s also interesting how the late-night hosts have gotten softer with their interviews at the same time as they’ve gotten more biting with the news. Is something valuable lost when the discussions between the hosts and guests are always so pleasant?

"Well, at some point publicists took over the talk shows. They were the people that booked the guests, and they had six or seven guests, so you had to be awfully nice to Guest A if you wanted to get to Guest B or C. I was not aware that this was going on until people started saying, “So-and-so is not going to be back on the show if you don’t be nice to so-and-so.” And I said, “What do we care?” And they’d say, “Well, because they also manage so-and-so and so-and-so’s sister, and we want those people on the show.” I realized not early into it that we were a tool for the careers of other people, which mediates what you’re going to talk about: In 2015, Ford broke his pelvis in an emergency plane landing at an L.A. golf course. In February, he accidentally landed on an airport taxiway in Orange County. “I’m Harrison Ford, and I can’t talk about landing a plane on a golf course.” I’m not saying it even makes the show worse. I can remember having a conversation via the sales department about Tylenol, and we had Bill O’Reilly on the show, and we were talking about something in the news, not particularly unpleasant but just something in the news. Tylenol called up and said, “You know what? We’re just going to lay out tonight. We’ll be back.” And rightly so. If you want to see adversarial conversation, you have cable-news channels all day long."

Were there ever instances where you thought, Maybe I was too hard on that person?
"Oh, yeah. I always felt like, We got 500 people in the audience and it’s my responsibility to get a laugh. Many times, the laugh would come at the expense of the guest. I regret that now, but at the time you think, I’ve got to do anything to keep my head above water. So it’s “Hey, nice shirt.” And then it’s “Oh, my mother made this shirt — how could you have said that?”"

Your interview with After violating her probation for a DUI, Hilton was incarcerated for 23 days in June 2007. Paris Hilton was famously rough.
"I remember that. She went to jail and had a sandwich or whatever she did there and then came home. I was fascinated by this. And the poor woman said to me, “I don’t want to talk about being in jail.” I felt like I could circumnavigate that. I said, “Well, that’s all I want to talk about.” If you had a chance to talk to Paris Hilton in those days, you just kind of want to talk about, “Well, no, seriously, you were in jail.” But that upset her and she cried and I called her and apologized. I think I bought her a car, too. As the guy operating the machinery sometimes, it was “You’re going a little fast here, pal.” It was easy to overdo it."

As a stunt for his fake documentary I’m Still Here, Phoenix mumbled through his 2009 Late Show appearance. Letterman: “What can you tell us about your days with the Unabomber?” Joaquin Phoenix is another one you wouldn’t let off the hook.
"I mean, he came out begging to be beat up. How can you not take a couple of swings?"

The line you had at the end of that interview was perfect: “I’m sorry you couldn’t be here tonight.”

"Is it sexist of me to make this observation? You have Paris Hilton, who is beautiful and kind and introverted, versus Joaquin Phoenix, who comes out in a Halloween costume. So you can say that line to him. I don’t know that you can say it to her. Anyway, I ought to be in prison as a result of this conversation I’m having with you right now."

Huffington Post Blind Item - The Friends Guest Star

Lisa Kudrow has dished on some hot “Friends” gossip while making the rounds promoting her new film, “Table 19.”

On [a recent] episode of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” a fan called in to ask the actress about the worst behavior she’d experienced from a guest star on the hit sitcom.

“The worst behavior just off the top of my head?” Kudrow replied. “I rehearsed without makeup most of the week and then on show night I’m in hair and makeup and I was told, ‘Oh, wow, now you’re’ — can I say it? ― ‘now you’re fuckable.’”

“That’s bad behavior, I say,” she told host Cohen and fellow guest Jennifer Beals. When Beals asked if Kudrow retaliated, the actress said she told Matt LeBlanc about the comment because “he’s like a big brother.” 

Unfortunately, the Phoebe Buffay actress didn’t name any names, leaving us to ponder the possible suspects. She did, however, later reveal that it was not Charlie Sheen, so you can cross him off the list.

Tom Hiddleston Talks Taylor Swift Regrets

In today's saga of The Thing That Will Not Die, Tom Hiddleston recently sat down for an interview with The Telegraph, where he talked about Taylor Swift. Again. Look, I get that he's not the one bringing it up, but hire yourself a decent publicist who will shut interviewers down when they ask this question so that we don't have to keep reading about it. But since that didn't happen, here's what he has to say about the subject this time around when asked if he regretted the publicity and gossip surrounding the relationship:

"What should I regret, in your mind? I would rather not talk about this, if that's alright...I'm just thinking about this. Everyone is entitled to a private life. I love what I do and I dedicate myself with absolute commitment to making great art and great entertainment, and in my mind I don't conflict the two. My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life. And those two things are separate."

Joe Manganiello Wrote a Pamphlet for Sofia Vergara

Joe Manganiello recently sat down for an interview with Cosmopolitan UK, where he talked about his love for wife Sofia Vergara. Here's what he had to say:

"I wrote her a book* as a gift for our first anniversary. It was about how we met, as well as our courting, and was about 40 pages long… I love my wife a lot."

And on how they got together:
"I was on a press tour when I found out Sofia was single [after splitting from Nick Loeb]. My friend is an editor, and told me she was about to make the announcement. I got her number from Jesse Tyler Ferguson [Sofia's Modern Family co-star], then flew to New Orleans to take her on a date."

*40 pages isn't a book, it's a pamphlet

Milo Ventimiglia Talks Family Planning

Milo Ventimiglia, star of NBC's This is Us, recently sat down for an interview with Us Weekly where they asked him if starring in the family show made him want to start a family of his own. Here's what he had to say:

"It doesn't make me want to have a family any more than I think I'm built to want a strong family unit. It will happen when it happens. I'm not out seeking it. It's just kind of, I'm present in the space in my life that when it presents itself and it's right, I'm sure it will work out."

On being around the young actors who play the young versions of his three on-screen children:
"I love it. It's fun, it's a blast. I don't have kids, I have nieces and nephews. I feel like I get to act out a little bit of my own paternal want to influence a young mind, shape a young mind, to approach life in a positive way."

On Mandy Moore expressing to Us Weekly that being around all the newborns on set makes her want children right away:
"Don't let her fool you! Sometimes when we are around kids [on set], she's like, 'Milo, I am never having kids.'"

Lily Collins Has Daddy Issues

Kate Hudson isn't the only person in Hollywood with daddy issues! Lily Collins is writing her memoir Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me. In it, she writes an open letter to father Phil Collins. Here is an excerpt, as published in the Daily Mail:

"I forgive you for not always being there when I needed and for not being the dad I expected. I forgive the mistakes you made. And although it may seem like it’s too late, it’s not. There’s still so much time to move forward. We all make choices and, although I don’t excuse some of yours, at the end of the day we can’t rewrite the past. I’m learning how to accept your actions and vocalise how they made me feel. I accept and honour the sadness and anger I felt toward the things you did or didn’t do, did or didn’t give me."



Leonardo DiCaprio Wants to give you a Seafood Dinner

People reports that Leonardo DiCaprio is coming to a frozen food aisle near you! He has recently invested in LoveTheWild, a sustainable food company specializing in farm-raised frozen seafood meals. Here's what he had to say of the investment:

“Estimates show the earth’s population approaching nine billion by 2050, putting tremendous pressure on our natural food resources. Seafood is a primary source of protein for nearly a billion people–but ​climate change, acidification and over fishing are putting increased pressure on our oceans’ natural stability. The exploitation of our oceans has left many marine ecosystems on the brink of total collapse, which is hurting our ability to harvest our seas as a reliable food source as we have for thousands of years. LoveTheWild is empowering people to take action on this crisis in a very meaningful way.”
