Naya Rivera Dating...David Spade?!

People reports that former Glee star Naya Rivera, 30, is reportedly dating David Spade, 52. I know this seems like an April Fools thing, but it was reported by several outlets yesterday, so seems to be like a real thing. The pair were spotted on vacation in Hawaii together, making out by the pool. A source says, "The pair went for a short swim, hugged and had lots of body contact in the pool. They kept to one side of the pool where there was the most covering from prying eyes. Outside of the pool, they sat on lounge chairs and talked animatedly. They spent about an hour poolside together. They were very happy. They looked pretty comfortable together.”

Rivera filed for divorce from husband Ryan Dorsey in November; they share one child together, son Josey Hollis, 1.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Their Own Civil War

Wondering about that sudden turnaround this gifted film actor just pulled regarding his ex?

It’s all fake!

They were a rather odd couple to begin with. Then they had a really bad breakup and became engaged in their own little civil war. Weren’t even speaking to each other. They were diplomatic in public, but when the cameras weren’t pointed at them, they each made nasty comments and complained about each other.

Then they were forced into a room together to do a promotion for a common project.

"They wouldn’t look at each other, talk to each other, or even stand near each other! The publicists got really worried when even the reporters started laughing and gossiping about how obvious it was that the two of them hated each other’s guts.

They were individually pulled aside and told that the bullshit needed to stop and that,  for the sake of a project, they needed act friendly and say nice things about each other even if it killed them. There was  still some resistance, and then they got yelled at. “You’re actors, fucks sake! Fake it!”"

They eventually complied. Now they can’t stop gushing about each other and talking how much they love and admire each other even though they are no longer together. Awww.

Yes, it’s all fake. They still hate each other guts!

Michael J Fox's Humorous Outlook on Life

Michael J Fox recently sat down for an interview with AARP's Magazine, to talk about living with Parkinson's at 55. Here are some highlights from the interview:

"You sure you want the truth? The truth is that on most days, there comes a point where I literally can't stop laughing at my own symptoms. Just the other morning. I come into the kitchen. Oh, good, coffee. I'm gonna get some! No, wait — I'm gonna get some for Tracy — who's at the table with the paper. I pour a cup — a little trouble there. Then I put both hands around the cup. She's watching. 'Can I get that for you, dear?' 'Nah, I got it!' Then I begin this trek across the kitchen. It starts off bad. Only gets worse. Hot java's sloshing onto my hands, onto the floor … And Tracy's watching calmly, going, 'Darling, why don't you [emphatic expletive] let me get it?' 'I'm almost there, babe!' Of course, by the time I reach the table, the cup's all but empty. 'Here's your coffee, dear — enjoy!'

There's the fact that it's 7 in the morning and 'This is how we begin our day — the right way!' But the thing that makes it hilarious to me is when I think of someone else watching all this and thinking, Poor Michael can't even get the coffee — it's so sad! After I made my diagnosis public back in 1998, I began to realize that Parkinson's gives you two things to reckon with. You deal with the condition, and you deal with people's perception of the condition. It was easy for me to tune in to the way other people were looking into my eyes and seeing their own fear reflected back. I'd assure them that 'I'm doing great' — because I was. After a while, the disconnect between the way I felt and the dread people were projecting just seemed, you know, funny."

On the support of wife Tracy when he was diagnosed:
"Tracy wasn't sentimental or romantic about it at all," he says. "No terror. No big windy …  no exhibition of grief and fear. Tracy was just like, 'You've got a stone in your shoe. We'll do what we can until you can get it out. In the meantime, if you limp with the stone, that's all right. You can hold my hand, and we'll get over that.' "

Robert Pattinson's Frosty Treatment of Charlie Hunnam

Charlie Hunnam recently sat down for an interview with E! News, where he talked about working with Robert Pattinson on The Lost City of Z. Here's what he had to say:

"I had a couple of rehearsal sessions with Sienna [Miller], but I didn't spend any time with Tom [Holland] or Robert [Pattinson]. I wanted these relationships to evolve naturally on screen. Through the work, I don't think I said more than ten words to Robert off camera. I didn't know if he was just 'in that zone' or if he genuinely didn't like me. There was a real distance between us. [His attitude created the] right dynamic on screen. He's reached out to me subsequently, making overtures for us to be friends now. so I think it was about the work." 

I mean, can you blame Pattinson for not wanting to get all chummy with the guy who almost played the fan fiction version of your most notable role?

Blind Gossip Blind Item - News About Lying Homewreckers

It’s not normally very news-worthy when celebrities buy a house or sell a house. In this case, though, it is.

We told you years ago that these two celebrities were having an affair.

Well, since then, Newsy Man and Newsy Woman have both left their spouses!

Just imagine the emotional scars that will leave on their kids, who now have to watch their parent on TV every morning, sitting next to the very person who wrecked their family!

Now, about that real estate. They already secretly live together in one large city. We’ve talked about that before. Now she is selling her home in another large city.

"She claims that she lives alone but that she needs a larger place for herself and her kids for when come home from college on the weekends. That’s bulls*t. She should say it’s for her, her kids, him, and his kids. They are buying a bigger place together."

So, now that they are both free and clear of their pesky spouses, why don’t they just announce that they are a couple?

"They have to wait a while so they can pretend that they were faithful in their marriages and that nothing happened between them until AFTER their divorces.

Of course, that’s a lie, which is kind of ironic. They both love accusing politicians of lying, but their relationship is the biggest lie of all!"

Kardashian Korner

Lamar Odom recently sat down for a long interview with Us Weekly, all about his misdeeds while married to Khloe Kardashian. Here are some of the highlights:

Take Us back to the start of your marriage. Was Khloé aware of your drug use?
"I was hiding it for a while, but then I got frustrated and was like, fuck it. Around two years before we split up [in 2011], I was in the man cave she had made for me and she caught me. She was disappointed. So was I. The sad thing about it is, I don’t know if I was disappointed because I was actually doing the drug or because she caught me. She knew I was doing cocaine the whole time after that. It was my drug of choice. I’m not going to say she accepted it because that would be the wrong word. Tolerated would be a better word."

Do you regret sharing your ­marriage on TV?
"Businesswise, it opened up opportunities, like the fragrance Khloé and I created. We probably cursed it by calling it Unbreakable, but that was my baby. It also opened this gate up with other women who probably wouldn’t have been interested in me. When I became Khloé Kardash­ian’s man and on TV, it made me look more enticing. People who didn’t even know basketball would approach me because they knew Lammy."

You mean other women?
"Yes. Bitches and THOTs came out of the woodwork. If there is one thing I regret when I was married, it was having multiple affairs with different women. That wasn’t the stand-up thing to do. I wish I could have kept my dick in my pants."

Tell Us about the night you ended up at the brothel.
"I was home by myself. Bored. I wanted to get out and have a good time. Looking back, I might have had a drink to get the mood started, but was I drunk or on drugs? Not at all. I remember lying in bed. Two women were in bed and then I fell asleep. That’s all. When I woke up four days later, I was trying to pull the tubes out of my mouth."

Surprised Khloé was at your side?
"Hell, yeah. It was definitely a moment of relief. I didn’t even know what had just happened. I mean, I’m a big strong dude who has made it to the highest level of doing what he loves. And now I can’t walk or talk. She was the first thing I saw. She said, “Hi, Mookah.” “Mookah” is a name my mother used to call me. She said it to let me know I wasn’t dead. She played a major role in me getting my memory back. She would bring pictures of my mother and my grandmother. I kept thinking, Am I paralyzed forever? Am I mute forever? It was scary shit. Faith got me through."

Are you clean now?
"Of course. Living sober, meaning no drugs, is a great feeling. Being in the moment is important — how you react, respond, create. If I would have done coke last night, you would have gotten some dickhead here trying to get out of here fast. But you’re getting Lamar now."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - She Wants Them To Make It Rain

When a celebrity rants online, you sometimes have to go a little deeper to understand their real message!

This reality star ranted about her ex. Except… it wasn’t really about her ex.

"She actually posted that rant about [Her Ex] to let [The Family] know that they should not f*ck with her and p*ss her off because she knows where the bodies are buried and she is not afraid to name names and spill all their embarrassing secrets. She is not walking away from this family without them making it RAIN!

She knows [Her Ex] doesn’t have any money. Her big payday is going to come from [This Family] paying her off. She wants a house (free and clear in her name), two cars (same thing), and $20 million."

RuPaul Talks Drag Race and Music

RuPaul recently sat down for an interview with Billboard. Here are some of the highlights:

First off, a condragulations is in order: nearly a million viewers tuned into the season nine premiere of Drag Race, making it the most-watched episode in the history of the series and doubling last season’s debut. Were you shocked?
"No, I wasn't shocked because we've moved over to VH1, which has 93 million homes. It's a lot more eyeballs that can watch our show. I've been out promoting our show for years and years to get people to tune in on Logo, but not a lot of people have Logo. And if they have it, it's usually one of the most expensive cable packages around, so it was quite a feat. We had great success at Logo, but I knew it was more accessible to people on VH1"

Lady Gaga stopped by for the premiere. She was brilliant. What’s your favorite Gaga song?
"You know, I believe it's the one I did with her called "Fashion." I love that song. Also, there's this other one that's part of this unreleased package that floated around the internet called "Nothing On But The Radio." I don't know the story behind it. I have a whole album of B-sides and unreleased Lady Gaga stuff. I don't know how I got it.

You know, I'm a music freak. I'm sort of like the Underground Railroad of music people. They send me things and I'll send them things because we love music so much."

Lady Gaga seemed genuinely touched seeing the queens re-creating her iconic looks. Now that the episode has aired, were there any off-camera moments you wish the audience had seen?
"I think the camera pretty much captured the vibe of the room. She was right in her element: She loves dressing up, she loves playing with identities and characters. She relates to that little nerdy kid outcast who finds freedom in performance and taking on different identities. I think the episode really captured how genuinely moved she was.

Last season, you had a similar runway challenge: All the queens wore Madonna-inspired looks. When can we expect The Queen of Pop to be a guest on the show?
"Well you know, Madge doesn't really do that much television. Unless she's promoting something, and then she does the big shows, like Carpool Karaoke. We always ask. We always ask Cher. We always ask everyone."

What did you think of Bowie's Blackstar?
"It's beautiful. It just made me miss the fact that he couldn't do more. In hearing that album and its jazz undertones, I thought, "Oh my god." I would have loved to hear him do a standards album or a proper jazz vocals album. Even singing some of the jazz standards. I just loved him so much. I still love him so much."

Let's talk about your new album, American. There's no pussyfooting: It's a call to arms in this political climate. Your music is generally playful, so what made you decide to make this bold statement?
"It was really from my heart. In years of doing it, you learn to use this instrument — this heart, mind, body, spirit — as a way to channel feelings to come through you. And that's exactly what happened.


I was so disappointed and despondent after the election. The American dream — the American drive that we stand for—- had been so deluded and tainted by this divisive entity. And that's exactly what came out of me: this album. I was angry; I chronicled my process of being lost and wanting to get away from it all. And then coming back and saying, "You know what? I’m back. I’m ready to fight the hard fight.""

Bachelor in Paradise Breakup Gets Messy

 I don't know why single mom Amanda Stanton thought it would be a good idea together with Josh Murray in Paradise after everything that Andy Dorfman wrote about him in her book, but I bet she's regretting it now. The are in the midst of the longest breakup ever, and Murray instructed his personal assistant Hayley Watts to call E! News and tell them the following tale:

"On March 13, Josh had an appearance in Los Angeles for the [Bachelor] finale of Nick's season. Josh and Amanda got into a big argument that night, and she ended up taking his things from their shared apartment and putting them out in the hallway. I had to go retrieve them for Josh.

...I had been speaking with Amanda about getting the car back. Josh purchased the vehicle. It's all in his name, but he let her use it when they were together and had plans to be a family. I told Amanda she had two options: she would have to get a lender for the remaining balance of the vehicle [if she wanted] to keep it, or she could give it back. She said the only way she'd give it back is if she was ordered by a judge.

...An officer was with me when we went to the place that Josh and Amanda shared to get the vehicle. We got the keys back and removed all her personal items from the car. In front of her daughter, Amanda proceeded to call me 'Fatty' a number of times. Repeatedly. She was body-shaming me in front of her daughter. It was really hurtful. She knows I have struggled with my weight.

[The police] invited her to check the vehicle for her missing things, and she refused. Josh was tired of this kind of drama. Right now, they're done."

As far as Stanton, here's what she had to say to E!:
"It's all a lie! It's just really frustrating. He doesn't even have a personal assistant. I don't know why [she's calling herself that]. She's contacted all these people and I don't know why because he's in Italy, I'm in Fiji. We haven't even talked. I don't know why I woke up to all this. I thought things were fine."

'He's known for turning down ensemble pieces for that exact reason,' claims the source. 'Sometimes he'll shock everyone and accept a role which requires him to work a lot of other men, but it'll turn out to be impossible or we start getting calls from the studio regarding the war of the set he's created.'

Michelle Pfeiffer Talks Taking a Break

Michelle Pfeiffer recently sat down for an interview with director Darren Aronofsky for Interview magazine. Here are some highlights from their conversation:

MICHELLE PFEIFFER: Did anybody forewarn you that I'm maybe, like, the worst interviewee that ever was? 

DARREN ARONOFSKY: That's an exciting way to start. 

PFEIFFER: I thought it was very clever to have you because I usually don't feel any responsibility to give up anything. I sort of bide my time until the interview is over, and I can be pretty withholding. But now, because I like you, I have to make an effort. 

ARONOFSKY: Well, thank you. Now I can finally reveal all of your true secrets. It's interesting—because we just worked together and got to know each other well—there are so many things I know about you. But sometimes I'm going to ask stupid things because people want to hear your story. I don't know if I ever got into it with you, but how did you even know what an actor was?


PFEIFFER: That's interesting. I'm from Orange County, Southern California, and couldn't have been more removed from the entertainment business. In fact, I didn't really even go to the movies much. My mother didn't drive. My father couldn't be bothered. So, I didn't really go anywhere. But what I did do is I would stay up really late watching old movies on television. I can't even tell you what they were because I was so young. But I remember watching what they were doing and saying to myself, "I can do that." 

ARONOFSKY: I'm curious if you can talk about things you picked up about your craft that has changed over your career? The skills that you've realized are part of your method, getting ready for a role. Because any kind of wisdom you can send my way ...?


PFEIFFER: I was thinking today, "Why do I hate being interviewed so much? [Aronofsky laughs] How can I explain this to poor Darren who has to do this dastardly interview with me?" And I think it may be that I have this constant fear that I'm a fraud and that I'm going to be found out. It's true. I just got this e-mail from Steve Kloves who wrote and directed The Fabulous Baker Boys [1989], and he said, "How's it going on Murder on the Orient Express?" which I just finished with Kenneth Branagh. And I said, "Oh, you know me. I feel like I'm ruining his movie." Because the first week into shooting Baker Boys, I said the same thing to Steve: "I think I'm doing a terrible job in this." 

ARONOFSKY: Oh, God.


PFEIFFER: But I think that's because I started working fairly quickly and I wasn't ready. I didn't have any formal training. I didn't come from Juilliard. I was just getting by and learning in front of the world. So I've always had this feeling that one day they're going to find out that I'm really a fraud, that I really don't know what I'm doing.

ARONOFSKY: Don't worry.


PFEIFFER: I've taken a lot of workshops, worked with some really masterful teachers, and I don't know that my method has actually changed from the beginning. I still work pretty instinctually—it's a little bit like hearing the rhythm of the character in your head. 

ARONOFSKY: We should probably talk about this incredible famine we've had without you. What has been the reason for the resurgence, deciding to share your light with us? 


PFEIFFER: Well, the first thing that comes to mind is I'm an empty nester now. I've never lost my love for acting. I feel really at home on the movie set. I'm a more balanced person honestly when I'm working. But I was pretty careful about where I shot, how long I was away, whether or not it worked out with the kids' schedule. And I got so picky that I was unhirable. And then ... I don't know, time just went on. And now, you know, when the student is ready, the teacher appears. I'm more open now, my frame of mind, because I really want to work now, because I can. And these last few years I've had some really interesting opportunities. And I have this weird synchronicity with Annette Bening. I was supposed to do Bugsy [1991]. I fell out of that. She did it, so she met Warren [Beatty]. That wouldn't have happened. And then she was supposed to do Batman Returns [1992]. She fell out of that. I replaced her. So, we're always kind of tag-teaming. 

ARONOFSKY: It wasn't because of that history that I thought of you; it just made so much sense. We just haven't seen enough of you.


PFEIFFER: Because I disappeared, yeah.

Because he is so wealthy, many women idolize him and have tried to land him over the years. Then along came an unexpected surprise. A baby. The baby’s mother thinks that he is going to marry her.

She’s wrong. He says that he has EVERYTHING now (money, a great job, freedom, beautiful women, and a child) and life is perfect so why in the world would he give any of that up to get married? He says that he would have to be insane to do that.

Alec Baldwin In His Own Words

Alec Baldwin is on the cover of April's Vanity Fair, and instead of sitting down for an accompanying interview, Alec instead wrote an essay, which seems like a very Alec Baldwin thing to do. Here is an excerpt:

"The list of men I admire in the movies is quite long. It goes from Lon Chaney Sr. to Gable to Tracy to Fredric March. It includes Robert Mitchum, Montgomery Clift, Kirk Douglas, Lon Chaney Jr., Michael Douglas, Tyrone Power, James Garner, Burt Lancaster, Yves Montand, Colin Firth, Albert Finney, Robert De Niro, Robert Preston, Paul Newman, Peter O’Toole, Gregory Peck, Maximilian Schell, and Gary Oldman.

My favorite movie actor is William Holden. On-screen, Holden is handsome, graceful, charming, and funny. He is tough and resourceful enough to handle himself in any type of predicament. In a range of films from Golden Boy to The Bridge on the River Kwai and Sabrina, from Sunset Boulevard to Stalag 17 and The Wild Bunch, Holden could do it all. I knew that developing a style like his was not practical. He was an original and tough to imitate. Plus, the scripts in those days were tailored for him. Writers today, in most cases, don’t necessarily write for a particular actor. But what I wouldn’t give to have been born in 1925 or so, to have survived the war and gone on to a career in films in that golden age of the 1940s and 50s.

In small and not so small ways, many young actors seek to latch onto the persona of a particular star and channel that star in their early work. Some newcomers try to bring their Brando, Dean, Mitchum, Pacino, De Niro, or Nicholson to the roles. Women may try, especially when they’re young, to pull in everything from Monroe to Katharine Hepburn. They may try to emulate, not only in terms of style but also of career choices, someone who is a contemporary like Meryl Streep, Cherry Jones, or Cate Blanchett. Young actors have to come up with something and haven’t had much experience. So why not steal from the best?

...I suppose the contemporary actor who I most wanted to emulate was Pacino. Al’s passion, intensity, and sexuality, all of his now legendary signatures, took my breath away. The scene in Serpico when John Randolph presents Serpico with his gold shield—a bullet hole bored into Al’s face—his indignity, disgust, and rage are barely containable. As Randolph presses the badge onto Al’s chest, Pacino collapses in tears that, to this day, go straight through me. I didn’t want to imitate Al. But I wanted to learn from him. The task was to maintain a reservoir of emotional truth, pain, and love.

...I have always been madly in love with Megan Mullally. Some have compared her to Madeline Kahn, and although I hear some echoes, Megan is such an original in terms of her timing, her warmth, and her mixture of insanity and sexiness. Like Megan, Jane Krakowski went on to nail the self-absorbed, horny femme fatale on 30 Rock. In my mind, there is a line from Marilyn Monroe to Madeline Kahn to Megan to Jane. Scattered in between are a lot of talented female comics and actresses who are scoring in film and TV, of all ethnicities and ages, like Rosie Perez, Wanda Sykes, Sarah Silverman, and Tig Notaro. But with her high-pitched voice and loopy delivery, I’ve always found Megan irresistible.

,,,When I first met Tina Fey—beautiful and brunette, smart and funny, by turns smug and diffident and completely uninterested in me or anything I had to say—I had the same reaction that I’m sure many men and women have: I fell in love. Tina was then the head writer at Saturday Night Live, and I was hosting that week’s show. The writers and producers were packed, impossibly, into Lorne’s satellite office overlooking Studio 8H, where S.N.L. is produced. (This was once Toscanini’s private office, when he directed the NBC orchestra in 8H. The building has quite a history.) When Lorne finished giving his notes after the dress rehearsal, I asked Marci Klein, who coordinated the talent, if Tina was single. She pointed to a man sitting along the wall. Or maybe he was standing? This was Jeff Richmond, Tina’s husband. Jeff is diminutive. Tina describes him as “travel-size.” When I saw him, I thought, What’s she doing with him? With his spools of curly brown hair and oversize eyes, Jeff resembles a Margaret Keane painting..."

Darlene Cates, Mom from What's Eating Gilbert Grape?, Has Passed Away

People reports that Darlene Cates, who played the role of Bonnie Grape in the movie What's Eating Gilbert Grape?, has passed away in her sleep at the age of 69. Cates is survived by husband Robert, sons March and Chris, daughter Sheri Ann, and four grandchildren.

My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time."

Emmy Rossum Latest Victim of Bling Ring 2.0

Okay, so police aren't saying whether or not all of these robberies are related or committed by the same perps, but it does kind of seem like there is a Bling Ring 2.0 running around Los Angeles at the moment. TMZ reports that their latest victim is Emmy Rossum. Her West Los Angeles home was broken into while she was in New York City last week. Her two safes were broken into, and $150K in jewelry was stolen. A housekeeper noticed the break in when she arrived at the property to a broken glass pane on the back door, and no power. Law enforcement believes that the thieves cut power to her house to circumvent the alarm.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Desperately Seeking Bromance

What’s behind the sudden rash of stories about how this movie star is now BFFs with this actor and having a bromance with that actor?

He’s trying to build up his own group of guys he can make movies with, like the way Ben and Matt [Affleck and Damon] or George and Brad [Clooney and Pitt] or James and Seth [Franco and Rogen] do it. You know, like writing and producing and acting together with the same group on a regular basis.

He’s always worked alone. Maybe he just never saw a need to be part of a group. He’s older now so making new friends doesn’t come naturally to him. That’s why he’s so awkward about it and why it all feels so forced.

The Gossip Life Blind Item - How You Get 'Em

They say 'how you get 'em is how you lose 'em' and it's definitely the case for this B list actress.

She began dating a famous man who was married at the time. After a few little lies, he promptly left her for another woman.

She began dating another famous man who was also apparently in a relationship. After a few secret kisses, he then left her for another woman.

I hear the man she's with now wasn't exactly 'single' at first meet. I wonder how that ends.

So, tell me, Gossipers:
