The Shannon Twins Are At It Again

TMZ reports that Playboy's Shannon Twins, Kristina and Karissa, were arrested in the early hours of Wednesday morning after beating the crap out of each other. Apparently they came home drunk to their West Hollywood home, and at 3:30am Kristina punched Karissa in the face, so Karissa threw an ADT security monitor at Kristina's face, knocking out teeth. Karissa was booked for felony domestic violence, and Kristina for misdemeanor domestic violence.

Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor Split

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Cold Behavior Backstage at Billboard

 In preparation for the Billboard Music Awards, a series of recording booths was set up in a backstage hallway. The hosts and presenters and performers and nominees would go from booth to booth to do interviews with radio personalities from across the country.

Someone backstage made an interesting observation about the behavior of one of the celebrities who was on stage during the Awards.

"She walked into each booth and sat down. As soon as she knew she was being recorded, she lit up and laughed and smiled and and was very animated and friendly. But as soon as the recording light went off, she stopped smiling, pulled off the headphones or put down the microphone, grabbed her stuff, and simply walked out. Didn’t say goodbye. Didn’t even look at the people interviewing her. Just walked."

Yikes. That’s cold.

Nothing to do with the popular boyband BTS. We just think they would have been fun to interview (or to go to high school with)!

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Hotel Meets

Sometimes coupes have unbreakable bonds and no matter how many divorces, break-ups and affairs come between them, they always find themselves gravitating back to each other.

This couple, who were once A list together but aren't publicly together anymore, have been reportedly sneaking off to hotel rooms for liaisons and meets. 

'Five meets since the start of the year,' says a source with access to one of their finances. 'It's basically a monthly occurrence.'

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who are our couple?

PS: Our actress is open with who she is meeting to those in her inner circle.

The Hollywood Reporter's Comedic Actor Roundtable

The Hollywood Reporter recently gathered Kevin Bacon, Kumail Nanjiani, Anthony Anderson, Ted Danson, Brian Tyree Henry and William H. Macy for a comedic actor's roundtable. Here is some of their conversation:

Brian's rise to fame is significantly more recent than the rest of yours. What advice do you have for him about navigating success?

ANTHONY ANDERSON (BLACK-ISH, ABC) Don't give your family money. Tell them no.

WILLIAM H. MACY (SHAMELESS, SHOWTIME) You can give my family money. (Laughs.) I've always said, "Do the good stuff, but don't do the bad stuff." That's my advice.


BRIAN TYREE HENRY (ATLANTA, FX) But what if the bad stuff is, like, lots of money?

MACY It's never enough money. The few times I've done something for money, halfway through I thought, "This isn't anywhere near the amount of money I'd need to get."

KUMAIL NANJIANI (SILICON VALLEY, HBO) But sometimes you read something, and you think it's going to be great and then it doesn't turn out good at all.


TED DANSON (THE GOOD PLACE, NBC) My experience is when I do stuff I probably shouldn't have, there was a moment when I read the script and went, "Boy, I don't know. This part here doesn't work." And then they say, "God, we'd love you for this part, Ted, and here's X money," and then you go, "It'll work. They'll fix it." And then they don't. Your instincts are usually right.

Hollywood loves to lock people into lanes. What are the roles that you find yourself getting tired of being approached for?

HENRY A thug. I am not a goddamn thug. (Laughs.) Especially now, they want to lock me into the drug dealer. I can be a lawyer!

DANSON But I think that's the part that's in your control, and you will have to say no.


HENRY It's a lot of no's. (Laughs.)

When was the last time you were mistaken for another actor?

NANJIANI Oh my God. There was one week where I got mistaken for Hasan Minhaj, who is on The Daily Show; Kunal Nayyar, who's on Big Bang Theory; and Karan Soni of Ghostbusters. This was one week. And this was, like, a month ago.


ANDERSON I get — which is crazy because it comes from my own community — Tyler Perry, Ice Cube and Ruben Studdard, which made me lose the fucking weight.

I want to flip the script on a question we typically ask women: What's the most sexist thing that's happened to you in Hollywood?

BACON I've got one. I think this qualifies as sexist. I'll let women decide that because I think that's something that women understand a lot better than men do, let's face it. I was up for a little film called Footloose. The head of the studio was a woman. And the director and the producer wanted me for the part and she said, "I don't want him. He's not fuckable."

NANJIANI First of all, so wrong. (Laughter.) Who has ever been more fuckable than Kevin Bacon?

BACON What can I tell you? I wasn't her taste.

ANDERSON Hey, were you fuckable after the movie?

BACON As it turned out … (Anderson fist-bumps Bacon.)


DANSON I don't know if this is sexism or ageism, but around the set, we all make jokes. If it's a good set and it's friends, men and women are just raunchy. It's not the sexism thing where you're offending people, they're doing it back and all that. I've noticed that what I used to be able to say and everybody would go, "Oh Ted," is now, "Eww." Age. All of a sudden, those jokes are no longer appropriate.

HENRY You became that guy, just like that.

DANSON It's like, ew, dirty old man.

BACON Do either of these qualify as sexist? I don't know.


DANSON The fact that we're having a hard time thinking of a sexist moment, that is the whole conversation. That is sexism right there.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Roundly Mocked

This young actress is not having a good day. Her recent TV special was roundly mocked.

However, she isn’t upset for the reason you think.

"She was crying about the mean comments people were making online. We thought it was because people were criticizing the production or her acting. She was actually crying because some people were calling her fat."

Perhaps reminding her of her net worth would provide a lift?

Kit Harington On Life After Game of Thrones

Kit Harington recently sat down for an interview with Esquire. Here's what he had to say:

On Game of Thrones wrapping up:
"Without saying whether I make it to the last season, we've been trying to say goodbye to the show this year."

On growing up:
"Thrones nicely bookended my twenties, but I'm thirty now. Maybe I can reinvent myself and get away from an image that's so synonymous with Thrones. But maybe this was the role I was always meant to play and that was it."

Game of Thrones' showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss on Jon Snow's tiny penis:
"There has to be some downside to being Kit Harington, right? It seems only fair. He's handsome, talented, smart, and so decent to the core that it's impossible not to like him. Maddening. The one thing we can do is saddle his character with a tiny pecker."

On Harington's plans post-Game of Thrones:
"If I try and compete with Thrones, if I'm like, 'I need a Marvel movie, or the next big show on Amazon, or another one on HBO,' then I'm just setting myself up for one hell of a fall...I'll enjoy the madness quieting a bit. I'd like a few years of relative obscurity."

Liam Gallagher Still Hates Noel Gallagher

Liam Gallagher recently sat down for an interview with ES Magazine. Here's what he had to say:

On getting up early everyday:
‘Look at that bad boy. It reads ‘05:00’, and underneath, ‘ALARM, WAKE UP. I’m up at five every day. And I love it. Leave the house at six. Run ’til seven. I get Gene (his son, 15, with ex-wife Nicole Appleton) up, ’cos he’s living with us at the moment. Get him off to school. Come back. Potter about. Try some jackets on. Try some shoes on. Play the guitar, have lunch. Then do whatever needs doing.’ 

On launching a solo career (which he previously said he would never do):
‘I just don’t want to be tarred with that brush. There’s people that are in great bands that have always got their eye on going solo — who we won’t mention, because he’ll get enough fucking mentions — and they break up great bands because… well, they use little things like, “Oh, we weren’t getting on”. Fuck off mate, you had your head turned big-style. This isn’t that. If Oasis started again tomorrow... well, obviously I wouldn’t get back with it because I’m busy with this and I like this and we’ll see where we end up. But I weren’t one of them people that broke a band up to go solo.’ 

On going through a rough patch a couple of years ago:
‘It was a bitter realisation. Right. No band. Don’t want to be in a band. Don’t want to meet loads of new people. And then all the divorce and all the other shit — it was just grim. I know it was all my own doing and that. But I was just living in ghoul world with fucking lawyers. Every day. If it wasn’t the divorce lawyer, it was the other lawyer. It was fucking grim. They just make it worse. They’re not there to make it better. They fucking strung it out, mate. They definitely know how long a piece of string is.

I’d open the door and get mithered to death straight away. People going, “Oasis, Oasis, Oasis” in your face, and it’s like you’re in a bad trip. You’re this guy in Oasis, but you’re not doing anything any more. You start going, “Am I a fucking has-been? Is this it?” And you’re sitting there going, “Well, maybe it is.”...I was waiting for the divorce to kick in, to see what fucking pennies they’d throw back at me, and I was out of here. I was gonna go and live in Spain and just chill out, get fit, eat nice, bit of sun on me bones and just fucking live.’ 

And on whether or not he regrets anything he has said about his brother Noel Gallagher:
‘No. Not at fucking all. I don’t regret anything I’ve ever said about Noel. I think he’s had it easy off me. It’s only sticks and stones, they won’t break his bones. Wait till I bump into the cunt. Everything I say is the fucking truth. I’ve not even dug that deep yet.’

When I took this iconic absurdity of a picture in 1996 I was one year removed from sleeping on a used mattress I took from a garbage dumpster in the back of an hourly sex motel. Couldn't afford to buy a bed so we do what we gotta do to get by. You can imagine all the fun colorful bodily fluids I tried my best to clean off. 21 years later I'm taking the same photo backstage hosting #SaturdayNightLive for the fifth time. If you're going thru your own tough times "used mattress" stage, do your best to have faith things'll get better and always be willing to outwork your competition because you never know where life is gonna take you. And ALWAYS remember to place a soft tissue under your left elbow as to protect the fabric of the cheap ass swag turtleneck that had you out here looking like a bad ass buff lesbian.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Blonde Announcement

This famous blonde is telling friends that a big announcement is coming!

Her friends don’t think that she is pregnant. They believe that she is either about to get engaged… or that she is already engaged and has just been holding off on the announcement!

Yes, this is definitely a real relationship.

She was the star of a TV show that was on the air more than ten years ago, but she is still in the media regularly and attracts attention wherever she goes.

You should know her beau’s name by now. She is richer and more famous than him, but he is certainly famous in his own right.

She has had many, many famous beaus – and his previous relationship ended both badly and controversially – so we hope that things are going more smoothly for both of them this time around!

Oprah Staged an Intervention for Jamie Foxx Back in the Day

Jamie Foxx recently appeared on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show, where he opened up about partying too hard during the 2004-2005 awards season, when he was nominated for Ray. Here's what he had to say:

“I’m having such a good time and I’m not knowing I’m fucking up. I’m drinking … I’m doing every fucking thing you could possibly imagine...[Oprah said] ‘You’re blowing it, Jamie Foxx. All of this gallivanting and all this kind of shit, that’s not what you want to do … I want to take you somewhere. Make you understand the significance of what you’re doing.’”

(In an effort to get Foxx on a better path, Winfrey organized a meeting for him with several legendary black actors at Quincy Jones’ home.) “We go in the house and there are all these old actors. Black actors from the ’60s and the ’70s. Who look like they just want to say, ‘Good look.’ They want to say, ‘Don’t blow it.’ [Sydney Poitier said] ‘I want to give you responsibility … When I saw your performance, it made me grow two inches.’ ...To this day, it’s the most significant time in my life where it was, like, a chance to grow up.”

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Wasted Haircut

You may have noticed this female celebrity sporting a radically different hairstyle from what she has had in the past.

You may think that she considered it for a while, looked at photos in magazines for ideas, booked an appointment with a salon, etc.

Nope!

"She was completely wasted and ranting about her ex. Then she just grabbed a pair of scissors and started hacking away. She stopped after a couple of minutes and realized what she had done. Then she had a stylist come over. They tried to fix it but couldn’t so she just said, “Cut it all off!”"

Reddit Blind Item - Why Everyone is Pansexual These Days

When I first started out in music, I thought I was bi and mostly dated guys. I was really out about it. All the industry people I met said it was really "hot" and definitely an advantage because it meant more male and female fans. I was even told by a famous producer that "Bi trumps gay. It even trumps straight".

There was a very clear opinion that being bi, pan, fluid, no label etc. was "cool", but being gay was just... gay. You get pigeonholed into the gay scene. But if you're bi, you can claim both the gay scene and the mainstream.

Anyway. I'm so lucky that my career has taken off and I have more fans than I ever imagined I would. Lately I've done a lot of reflecting and realised I was actually 100% gay. Well fuck.
I told my manager and producers, who I'm really close to. First words out of his mouth were, "Don't tell anyone." Said I'd lose tons of male fans and become a niche gay artist. And that I better not "shave my head and go all dykey". They said I don't have to actively lie that I'm bisexual, but if any questions come up I should just avoid it by saying something about fluidity and not everyone needs a label.
In the big scheme of things, it's not the end of the world. Worse stuff has happened to me in the industry. I could write a book about how artists are treated, especially women! I'm fortunate to live in a time where I can date a woman and it's not a big deal. (And if I get a big platform, I will come out. But right now it would just erase me from the industry forever.)

What's fucking with my head is I talked to some other artist friends of mine who I knew were some kind of queer. And many told me they were actually gay, but had to play the same game. "You can be gay in behaviour all you want, just don't ever say the word gay or lesbian or homosexual." They told me about their friends, who included well-known artists and actors, who were also closeted gays. In fact it seems a way bigger issue in the movie industry, because you need to be taken seriously in straight roles.

It's totally changed my perspective. I used to wonder where all the gay celebrities were, and why everyone was "no label" these days. Now I know they are hiding in plain sight.

Of course a lot of them are actually in that grey area. And I will take their word for it. It's a real orientation, and doesn't mean you're closeted or confused. But it's sad how many gay people are forced to do it too. It will never be cool to be gay, because you lose your appeal to the majority of people. And show biz depends on appealing to people. No matter how accepting society becomes, the media will be full of closeted people.

It makes me that much more appreciative of people who have come out as gay, even if it ruined their careers.

Jamie Oliver Wants to Stop Fighting with Gordon Ramsay

Apparently Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay have been feuding for years. Here's what he had to say recently about the feud, as reprinted by E! News:

"Gordon has been fairly horrible to me over the years and I did used to bite. Now I just shut up and take it. A bit of drama is always good for some PR. Competition is healthy. It's good to have that kind of rivalry. Our kids are around the same age and they don't need to see their dads slagging each other off. It's pathetic."

Teen Mom's Amber Portwood Meets with Vivid

TMZ reports that Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood, 27, and on-and-off fiance Matt Baier, 46, have met taken a meeting with Vivid CEO Steve Hirsch. If you don't immediately recognize that name, he's the head honcho of the same porn company that produced those Backdoor Teen Mom porns with Farrah Abraham, Portwood's co-star. Matt and Amber tell TMZ, "The meeting with Steven and Vivid was very professional and low key." No word on whether or not a deal was reached.

Ugh, can they not? First off, it's going to make it so much harder for her to look down on Farrah (which Amber totally did after Farrah made her pornos). Also, nobody wants to see that tape.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Her Pinging Man

This young actress has already won major accolades. Her talent is no secret… but her relationship with her man always has people whispering and asking questions!

Want some answers? Of course you do! And, luckily for you, they come from someone very close to him.

Is he gay?

"I know he pings pretty hard (as gay), but he likes to say that he is not gay, he is pansexual. He will sleep with anyone. He says that his attraction to other people is not about the gender, it’s about the mind."

Are they really a couple?

"That’s more difficult to answer. They are good friends and spend a lot of time together, so if that makes them a couple, then they are a couple. He likes the attention he gets from being seen with her. However, she is too old for him and not really his type. He likes them very young, as close to 18 as possible. He is very sexual and he likes to fuck a lot of different young boys and young girls.  She knows all this."

Did he have a relationship with [that boybander]?

"Let’s just say that those rumors have a lot of merit to them. He still gets teased about it a lot."

Anything else we should know about him?

"He is very artsy and eccentric and a big fan of cocaine."

That doesn’t exactly sound like marriage material to us, but perhaps we are missing something here.

Not Alicia Vikander.

Ladies Love Charlie Hunnam

Charlie Hunnam recently sat down for an interview with Glamour UK, where he talked about his target audience. Here's what he had to say:

“Our key demographic on Sons Of Anarchy was predominantly female. And King Arthur is appealing in the test screenings much more to women than men – so I feel that even though I play hyper-masculine roles, I’ve always been well-received by the female audience.”

On Hunnam's King Arthur:
“There’s definitely some swagger. We didn’t shy away from making him unlikeable in the beginning of the film, but hopefully you start to see him go through his process of self-exploration and realise where a lot of his swagger comes from. It’s just covering up his own perception of his inadequacies and demons, so you start to feel for him.”

On leaving behind his character Jax from Sons of Anarchy:
“It was actually quite emotional for me, living and loving that guy for eight years, to have to finally put him to bed. I found myself going back to set a lot. I knew the security guards and for a couple of days said, ‘Oh, I forgot something’, so they’d let me onto the set, and I’d just walk around at night because I wanted to be in that environment and go through a personal process of saying goodbye. After a couple of nights I didn’t really need the alibi to get in, and then after a while I just said, ‘OK, enough, this is done.’”

On the effect that living in Los Angeles has had on him:
“Enormous emphasis is put on nutrition and healthy lifestyle there. I never spent much time or energy thinking about nutrition and health when I was in the north of England.”

Katy Perry Carpool Karaoke


In case you don't feel like watching the whole thing, go to the 9:25 mark to hear her talk about the feud. And if you can't stand watching the two minutes where she talks about it, here is part of what Katy has to say about the Taylor Swift feud:

"There's a situation. Honestly, it's really like she started it, and it's time for her to finish it...I tried to talk to her about it and she wouldn't speak to me. I do the right thing any time that it feels like a fumble. It was a full shutdown and then she writes a song about me, and I'm like, OK, cool, cool, cool, that's how you want to deal with it? Karma!

But what I want to say is that I'm ready for that BS to be done. Now, there is the law of cause and effect. You do something, there's going to be a reaction, and trust me daddy, there's going to be a reaction. It's all about karma, right? I think personally that women together, not divided, and none of this petty bullshit, women together will heal the world." 

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Yacht Envelope

This girl is a model. You definitely know her name. She has a substantial social media following.

She has been working recently. At the end of one work session, she was handed an envelope with her initials and the word “gift” on it.

That’s how it works. She was not being paid for sex. She had sex and then her suitor left her a gift in an envelope. See the difference? No, we don’t either. But it does keep everything legal.

Anyway, the envelope was… light.

"She was very mad and made a scene. She started yelling that it was five thousand short and that they had promised her five thousand more and that they had better get her her five thousand or else!"

Or else what? To whom was she planning to complain? The hooker police?

Drew Barrymore recently sat down for an interview with Glamour UK, where she shared her tips on how to be confident. Here are some highlights from her list:

Create your own mantras and signposts
“I’m definitely a big proponent of marching in the army of optimism. That’s a thing I’ve come up with that details succinctly what my mission is in life. I have little pictures – mini mood boards – of moments and times framed all over my home: a childhood drawing, my kids’ art or pages from 100 Love Notes. It has great little sayings in it that are poetic and beautiful, and amazing quotes. You can create signposts of why life can be great and beautiful, and you need it because you’re going to get distracted from it in your day.”

Don’t fight who you are
“I have two daughters [Olive, 4, and Frankie, 2] who love to get dressed with me and I’m very conscious of how I react to myself in the mirror. I never scrutinise myself in front of them. I’ve always been on a mission to embrace what I was born with and it’s been a great buffer against certain pitfalls that we can fall into. We can get down when we think we’re 
not a certain thing, but it’s like, ‘F**k that. Be you. What’s your best you?’ Do whatever you need to feel good in your own skin and the way you look, your body, your shape, your size. Work it. You’re all you have.”

Your soulmate might not be who you think it is
“Nancy Juvonen is my best friend, producing partner of 25 years and my true partner in life. She’s always been so wise about relationships and I’ve learnt so many incredibly powerful lessons from her about self-respect, knowing what’s right and what’s wrong, and what’s good and bad behaviour, and what’s acceptable behaviour. Surround yourself with women like Nancy.”

Happily ever after isn’t one-size-fits-all
“Although my own fairytales didn’t necessarily work out [Drew split from husband Will Kopelman in 2016], I’m like, ‘Goddammit, don’t take my divorce as any measure of how much I’ve learnt about women and men and relationships.’ I feel so equipped to always help my friends or for what I will encounter in the future, as I’ve learnt so many amazing lessons. I feel like I’m a great person to speak to about relationships, because I’ve learnt from really amazing people who tell you the truth and are incredibly smart and also loving.”

Find your happy place
“Mine is always comedy. Yesterday I was having a crap day, I don’t know why, I was just blue, and I remembered that Amy Schumer was posting her Leather Special on Netflix. 

I never watch television during the day, but I said, ‘Let’s all have lunch in front of the TV and watch Amy Schumer.’ Within seconds, I was laughing my ass off. And then last night I binged on John Oliver. I am obsessed with him; he’s so brilliant. I will always gravitate towards comedians and comedy because they are like medicine men.”

Orlando Bloom Had a One Night Stand

Page Six reports that Orlando Bloom recently banged a waitress in London who worked at the Chiltern Firehouse bar and hotel, and when the waitress was discovered in Bloom's room the next morning after the actor had departed, she was fired by the Chiltern for "fraternizing with clients." And because it happened in London, she sold a story to the British tabloids, where they print hilarious shit like this:

“There was real electricity between her and Orlando from the moment they saw each other. She said she had an amazing time and his body was very good. He was an exceptionally good lover. He made the first moves. He’d been staying at the hotel for five days and the sexual tension had been building up...They didn’t exchange numbers on the night.”
