Jen Aniston is Engaged!

I was elated when I saw this headline pop up. “Jen and Justin Engaged!” I secretly felt bad for her after Angelina Joli was able to steal Brad Pitt away from her, effortlessly, during their filming of Mr and Mrs Smith. Then without any shame, they would parade their love for all to see at every awards ceremony in Hollywood. And just when you thought Aniston was getting her groove back with John Mayer, he dumps her and talks about her like a dog.  When she went crawling back to him, he dumps her again!

Yes, I felt like she had no self respect. She had a great body (that she was ever so ready to flaunt any chance she got) and a respectable acting career, but, I thought she could kiss a meaningful romantic relationship goodbye. Well, that was until she walked onto the set of Wanderlust and met co-star, Justin Theroux.

Theroux is an actor,screenwriter and director. He has had a successful run on Broadway, co-wrote the comedy blockbuster, Tropic Thunder and wrote the screenplay for Iron Man 2! Theroux also comes from a family of notables. He is the nephew of poet Alexander Theroux and the great-great grandson of financier and railroad magnate H.B. Hollins.

From the moment the two met, they have been virtually inseparable. The couple entertained the blogs and entertainment blogs with their matching too cool for school outfits. Now, just a year or so after the two met, Theroux proposed during his birthday celebration on Friday! What a romantic guy. The only gift we wanted was for Jennifer to say yes, which she did. If anyone deserves a happy ending, its Aniston.

Oscar winning actress, Halle Berry, was rushed to the hosptial in Los Angeles Tuesday night after suffing a minor head injury.
During a fight sequence on the set of her new film,”The Hive,” she fell and hit her head on the concrete. She began to vomit, which is one of the symptoms of a concussion so an ambulance was called and she was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. After they ran a few tests, she was deemed healthy and released.

Her spokeswoman, Meredith O’Sullivan, released a statement soon after Halle was discharged from the hospital, “She was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but she checked out healthy and was released. She’ll continue production as planned.”

This is not Halle’s first work related injury. She broke her foot earlier this year on location in Spain for “Cloud Atlas.” As a result, she couldn’t attend the Academy Awards in February.

Its great to hear that Halle Berry is doing well and working on yet another film. She is a busy bee. Guess you have to be when you have to pay Gabriel Aubrey‘s $20,000 a month child support!

Hmm, that’s what happens when wealthy women date the beautiful men with no jobs. Are you taking note JLO?

“The Hive” co-stars Abigail Breslin is due in theaters sometime next year.

ImageSeems like Katie Holmes is no longer under the spell, I mean, in love with her couch jumping turned muscle bound, hair extension wearing, Rock of Ages husband. Holmes filed for divorce in New York, in attempt to protect her privacy and  hired Jonathan Wolfe as her attorney. Wolfe is known as an expert in complicated divorces.

Holmes filled for divorce in New York last Thursday. They say her choosing to file in New York instead of California will help keep many details of their divorce private. Wonder what they want to keep so private? Its going to take a lot of stalking since their friends and family are tight lipped about what has was the last straw in the marriage. All they are saying is that the divorce papers came as a surprise since Katie seem to be so happy with Tom just a couple of week ago. Hmm, could it be that the actress was “acting” like she was happy?

I must say that during interviews for Rock of Ages, whenever Cruise was asked a question about his family, he would talk about Suri. I would wonder, what about his Wife? If Tom gushed about Katie during recent interviews like Seal did about Heidi before their divorce, one may believe he didn’t know there was trouble.

Speaking of Tom Cruise and his family, did you know that he has 2 other children? He adopted son, Conner and daughter, Isabella when he was with Nicole Kidman. Conner, his bi-racial son, is so impressed by his daddy that he wants to be an actor just like Cruise. Tom is good friends with Will Smith and when Smith’s kids said they wanted to be in films, Smith made it happen. Why hasn’t Tom followed Smith’s lead and have Conner star along side himself? I digress.

With entertainment news being a 24 hour, 7 days a week thing, it will be difficult for Holmes and Cruise to keep many things secret. Or people will put out wild and crazy rumors hoping the couple will comment on them. For example, reports are saying Katie filed for divorce because Tom was going to send Suri to a Scientology boat where she would live there for years and become a this brainwashed Scientology robot. Insane right?  I don’t really care to hear much about the whole Scientology stories, I want to know the real story behind Suri’s existence. Is she the result of a successful science project like Paris and Prince Jackson?

Though the gossip circulating around these two will be amusing, we must remember that Holmes is going through a difficult time and little Suri’s world is being turned up side down right now.  Im sure Holmes’ family is providing the love and support she needs but I want to see Nicole Kidman step up and extend a hand to Holmes. Kidman knows all too well how it feels to go through a high profile divorce from Cruise and could possibly give pointers on how to make him really pay!

I can’t say that I was surprised by the Holmes-Cruise split but I wonder how Suri will deal with it. She is a very bright child, she does have a book coming out, but growing up in a broken home is never easy. Will she write a tell all book about her life? Or will she jump on a helicopter and fly off to some remote island to be alone with her thoughts? No matter how privileged she may be, she will feel the emotional stress that all children experience when their parents divorce. I hope the paparazzi take Katie and Suri’s emotional wellbeing into consideration and provide them with a little room to breathe. As for Tom? I hope the media hounds hide in his bushes find out what wild and crazy things he is keep under wraps!

 

Thursday, a list of music stars, athletes, models and actors were partying at W.i.P in SoHo New york. Amongst that group were superstars Drake and Chris Brown who sat with friends and had their respective VIP tables.

Everyone was having a great time until Chris Brown got the bright idea to make amends with his colleague and one time friend (Chris and Drake have been at odds since Drake dated Rihanna). Chris Brown thought it would e a good idea to send an expensive bottle of champagne to Drake’s VIP table as a peace offering. According to sources, Drake didn’t like the gesture and quickly returned the bottle to Chris with a kind note saying, “I am f*cking the love of your life.”

Moments after the bottle was returned, members of Drake’s entourage approached Chris’ table. A few words were apparently exchanged between both the stars friends and a fight broke out. Some conflicting reports have come out regarding whether or not Drake threw a bottle at Chris Brown causing a cut on his chin. It was a blood bath for anyone who was near these two musicians during the fight.

When it was all said and done, members from both entourages including Chris Brown, his girlfriend and his bodyguard had to receive immediate medical attention. Tony Parker was also rushed to the hospital after a piece of glass scratched his retina, a model who was partying at the club had to get stitches in her arm and innocent bystanders were hurt in the scuffle.

After the melee, Drake allegedly went to Rihanna’s hotel room with a bodyguard because he was afraid to spend the night in his own room. Then, that very Thursday night, Rihanna went to Jay-Z‘s 40/40 club to party with her girls and guess who shows up? Chris Brown! Sources say the two spent some time in a private room and were seen being very affectionate with eachother. Must be great to be Rihanna. Wonder how Chris’ girlfriend feels about their public display of affection and admiration for eachother?

In any event, Chris is not happy about the cut on his chin and wants Drake to pay, with jail time! Chris has provided his lawyer, Mark Geragos, with video footage from the fight and Geragos says he has evidence Drake threw glassware. Media outlets were reporting that there was a warrant out for Drake’s arrest for reckless endangerment, for allegedly hurling a bottle. However, much to Chris Brown’s chagrin, new reports say that Drake will not face arrest. Sorry Chris!

Britney Spears recently signed a $15 million contract with Simon Cowell to be one of the celebrity judges on X-Factor. She is perhaps the biggest celebrity (though JLO is the most powerful) to sign on as a judge on a reality talent show to date. She has had a successful music career since she was 17 years old, not to mention starring on Broadway at 5 and on the Mickey Mouse Club during her Pre-Teen years. If there is a person who knows a thing or two about having the “X-Factor,” its Britney Spears. So, why isn’t everyone elated that she will get to be upfront and center during the show?

If you have been watching Britney Spears over the years know that she has been struggling with alot. Whether you think its a mental or emotional instability, the details of her ailment is between she and her doctor. But, from and outsiders point of view, its safe to say that something’s just not right with Brit Brit. Remember the hair shaving, umbrella to the car incident? The quickie wedding then annulment to childhood friend, unenthusiastic concert performances and other weird situations that she was involved with? Exactly, something’s not right with her! Now she wants to go on LIVE, unscripted television and advise industry hopefuls? Yikes!!!

We all know that America loves a come back kid. Look at Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan. These two seemingly cleaned up their acts and are headed back on top of the A-list. However, besides her getting engaged to Jason Trawick, Britney hasn’t shown us that she is mentally and emotionally well for a high profile job. In fact, in photos taken last week in New York City for the Fox Upfronts, Spears showed up with nasty, ratty, weaved hair and her finger nails bitten down to the core and bleeding. I remember in an interview with Diane Sawyer, back in 2003, Britney admitted to bitting her nails when she felt nervous and scared! So, if she is bitting her nails right before a press junket, you really think she is ready for the pressures of X-Factor?

Simon Cowell is banking on Spears to bring in a record number of viewers to his show. He hasn’t been impressed with the rating X-Factor and believes Britney Spears along with Demi Lovato will send the show into the Nielsen ratings stratosphere. There is no doubt that a record number of people will tune in to watch X-Factor once it airs. Everyone will be interested to see what Spears will see, how she will look like and quite frankly, everyone wants to see this train wretch in action! In slow motion preferably.

I am a fan of Britney Spears and hope for her sake that she is getting the help she needs to pull this off and excel.

During Will Smith’s many years in the entertainment business he thought he knew every trick under a reporter‘s sleeve. Well, he was obviously taken off guard by what was waiting for him in Moscow.

Will Smith was in Moscow for the premiere of “Men in Black 3” and looked jovial as he walked down the red carpet; Waving to fans and speaking to reporters. All was well until his encounter with one eager reporter from Ukrainian‘s television channel 1+1, Vitalii Sediuk. Sediuk rushes to Mr. Smith, hugs him and kisses him on the cheek. Smith who understands that customs are a little different in Europe, in regards to them being more affectionate, accepts the kiss and turns to walk away. As Smith turns away,  the reporter holds on to the actor starts planting several kisses on both cheeks then tries to kiss the actor on the lips. A stunned Will Smith pushes the reporter away and gives him a back handed slap across his face. Smith yells, “Come on man, what the hell is your problem?”

All the cameras on the red carpet focus in on Smith as he says with a disgusted look on his face, “He tried to kiss me on my mouth! He’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him!” He quickly follows that comment with, “Sorry, I said that on camera.”

Sediuk is known for trying to surprise celebrities with kisses on the lips but none have reacted the way Will Smith has. I think it was  about time someone made him realize the consequences of his actions.

In today’s fame hungry world, gags like these on celebrities are a sure fire way to get the media talking about a virtually unknown person and propel them to stardom. Think about all the hoax’s Sasha Baron Cohen has pulled over the years. His over the top pranks and annoying antics helped make him become the star he is today. So, is Sediuk angling for a role in a comedic film for his one prank show? I don’t know, but Im sure we haven’t heard or seen the last of him yet!

Actress Gabourey Sidibe was on Watch What Happens Live, hosted by Andy Cohen the other day and told viewers about her disappointment after meeting her screen idol Joan Cusack at a party.

During the the show’s “Plead the Fifth” segment, Sidibe was asked,”What celebrity were you most disappointed by when you finally met them?”

Sidibe said,”I met Joan Cusack, who is my favorite – I love her – but, it was before I became (famous) or whatever. I was at some industry party, and she says, ‘Are you an actress?’ And I said, ‘Yeah!’ And she says, ‘Oh honey, you should really quit the business, it’s so image-conscious.'”

However, Sidibe did not take Cusack’s advice because soon after their introduction she auditioned for the role of precious and as they say ‘the rest is history.'”

Though Cusack’s words were harsh, was she wrong for the advice she gave? Maybe Sidibe asked her for a helpful tip and Cusack told her what she truthfully felt! In any event, Sidibe has gone on to star in Tower Heist and is a supporting actress on the Big-C.

Gabourey Sidibe’s on-screen success is definitely outside of Hollywood norms. However, I hope the entertainment industry continues to take chances with other actors who are not picture perfect. 

ImageBeyonce and her mother, Tina, had an interview with People Magazine the other day in honor of her being name People’s 2012 most beautiful woman. During their conversation the rumor about Beyonce using as surrogate to carry her daughter came up and the two decided to address them.

This is the moment Beyonce fans have been waiting for; the day that Beyonce would address the rumors and put all doubt to rest. She told the interviewer of the rumors, “That was crazy. It wasn’t hurtful, it was just crazy.[I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?’”

Her mother quickly interjected with,”I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months,” the singer’s mom told People. “As a mother it was painful for me to hear.”

So, what about that folding belly you ask? She says that was the dress that looked all scrunched up, not her belly. “It was a fabric that folded — does fabric not fold?” Beyonce.

As for her prancing around New York in 5 inch heels while 9 months pregnant? The songstress had this to say, “I didn’t feel that I looked beautiful during birth — but who does? After being pumped with all those fluids and gaining so much weight, with my swollen lips and cheeks, I barely recognized myself. I tried my best to roller-set my hair and I wore my [lip] gloss when I arrived at the hospital. I committed to the end and wore my kitten heels. It makes me laugh thinking about it. But after many hours of labor, I didn’t care how I looked. It was all about the miracle that God gave me — the opportunity to deliver a human being.”

Very touching Beyonce but you haven’t said anything to clear up the rumors. In fact, you dug a deeper ditch for herself.

Anyone who has watched the video of her belly collapsing saw that it was not the fabric but that huge bump that looked like a big belly which folded.

Also, what are these fluids she was being pumped with and why? Most pregnant women retain water, and gain weight and swollen lips aren’t what they complain most about.

Lastly, she doesn’t mention much about the labor. How many hours was she in labor? What about the pain? Who was with her when her water broke and she was rushed to the hospital?

She doesn’t speak on any of the above but she knew exactly when to get a roller set and made sure her lip gloss was poppin’.

Why is Beyonce trying so hard to convince people that she gave birth to her child? She is posting photos of her swollen feet online and says they were taken when she was pregnant. If she really wants to quiet the rumors, all she has to do is release a photo of her naked, pregnant belly!

 

The Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, is one of the most powerful women in the world. She is intelligent, resourceful and known for her stern, no nonsense personality. So when she decided to get loose at a neighborhood pub, you better believe it made the papers.

Mrs. Clinton is in Cartagena, Colombia for the Summit of the Americas did not want her trip to be all work and no play. She decided to join a few of her colleagues at a local bar to unwind and enjoy being in Columbia. She and 12 others showed up at La Havana a little after 12:30am. A local paper reported that her party ordered a dozen beers, two glasses of whiskey and bottles of water. Then the Secretary of State was photographed laughing and moving her hips to the Latin music. I bet you are waiting for me to write that she danced on tables and did body shots…not at all. She does have a reputation to uphold after all.

Mrs. Clinton drank a little beer, danced a little while and was out of there in 30 minutes! Wow, talk about short lived. Maybe she had to rush off to the “after” after party at the hotel with the secret service guys…Just kidding.

Move over right leg, Angelina’s left ring finger has stolen the show!  The nay sayers never thought this day would come but Angelina Joli and Brad Pitt have officially become engaged. The engagement rumors started when Angelina had a beautiful diamond ring on her finger while out with Brad and Maddox. After hours of speculation, the engagement was confirmed. Is it safe to assume that somewhere in California Jennifer Aniston is having a complete break down?

The news came Friday the 13th via email from Pitt’s long time manager, Cynthia Pett-Dante. She told ABCNews.com that the power couple is engaged and their children are ” very happy.” Its no secret that the kids wanted their parents to get married and have been pressuring the power couple for a while. Now, their wish is one step closer to being reality.

Pitt allegedly worked closely with jeweler, Robert Procop, to design the perfect ring for his lovely wife to be. The ring is said to be a rectangular diamond with minor diamonds surrounding it. Its rumored that the ring took a year to design. Guess Brad wanted it to be perfect for bride to be. Wonder how long it took him to pick out the ring for Jennifer Aniston? I digress.

While fans fo the couple are happy for them, the rest of the world is rolling their eyes. Could this be a ploy to get more publicity for themselves? Possibly! But If this wedding happens, they should televise it! Tacky? Absolutely, but, it would get more ratings than the Oscars and Prince Williams’ wedding combined!
