Pregnant Kim Zolciak Caught Smoking

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Kim Zolciak from "Real Housewives of Atlanta" took a smoke break while watching an NFL game a few weeks back -- it wouldn't be a big deal ... but Kim is three months pregnant.Here's the timeline: the photo was taken in Atlanta on November 7, outside the Georgia Dome. Two weeks later, Kim and baby daddy Kroy Biermann (who plays for the Atlanta Falcons) announced they were expecting.

In case you're thinking "Maybe Kim didn't know she was pregnant when she decided to smoke" -- well, think again. Kim told a tabloid this week she denied the pregnancy rumors in October because "[I] wasn't through my first trimester -- you never know what could happen."

Exactly.

Calls to Kim's reps were not returned.

16 Viral Videos From the Age Before YouTube



Last week I wrote about absurd viral videos from the pre-YouTube era that wowed my friends and me as college students who were relatively new to the broadband speeds that allowed streaming video.

In that piece, I highlighted videos like Peanut Butter Jelly Time and Mario Twins. But there were so many more. Today, I reminisce with 16 more viral videos that transport me instantly back to a tiny concrete dorm room in the early 00s.

Emily Blunt was a tomboy child

Photobucket

Emily Blunt was a childhood tomboy.

The 'Devil Wears Prada' actress - who is renowned for her sense of style - admitted she had more boyish interests and hated being dressed in feminine clothes when she was a youngster.

She said: "I never dreamed of being a princess when I was a child - I wanted to be on the soccer team. I wasn't into Barbie dolls and swore I'd never, ever wear pink. I'd throw tantrums if my mum put me in pink clothes. Not a girlie girl at all."

However Emily - who married actor John Krasinski in Italy this summer - thinks being a tomboy has helped her to cope on male dominated movie sets.

She explained to Company magazine: "I like being one of the boys. It usually ends up being the case anyway because there's often one female part to every five male parts on a film set. When you're outnumbered you have to be willing to accept that there might be crass humor going around, but you get used to it."

John Travolta Threatens to Sue Gawker

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Hours before his wife Kelly Preston gave birth to their son Benjamin, John Travolta’s team shot off a five-page legal letter to Gawker, demanding it remove a post purporting to reveal the actor’s so-called “secret sex life” with other men in Los Angeles spas.

In the blistering missive, obtained by Gossip Cop, Travolta’s attorney, Marty Singer, calls out the site posting “false and outrageous” claims made by Robert Randolph, whose salacious stories Gawker ran in a post called “The Secret Sex Life of John Travolta.”


In a self-published book, Randolph alleges to have seen Travolta on multiple occasions in steam rooms engaging in sexual acts with men.

Singer refers to Randolph’s stories as “blatant defamatory lies” from a “patently unreliable source,” and points out that the “author” acknowledged on his own website that he suffered “permanent brain damage” in 2003.

Also hurting Randolph’s credibility, notes Singer, is that his stories “go back fifteen years, yet inexplicably, he has waited until now to peddle these phony tall tales.”

Furthermore, Travolta’s camp points to what they say is the absurd notion that a world-famous movie star would repeatedly commit adultery in public – casually, and in front of strangers – and that Randolph would bear witness each time.

Paul's Song to Son Tops Beatles Tunes on itunes



"Hey Jude" has emerged as the Beatles' most popular song after the band's catalog debuted on Apple's iTunes store last week. Written by Paul McCartney, the song was originally composed to comfort John Lennon's son Julian while his parents were going through a messy divorce. At the time of its release, "Hey Jude" was the longest single to ever top the charts in Britain, and spent nine weeks at the top of the U.S. charts, the longest of any Beatles single.


The next highest selling Beatles song, "Let It Be," was also composed by McCartney. An NME readers poll chose "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "I Am The Walrus" as the two greatest Beatles songs of all time, both John Lennon compositions. The poll ranked "Hey Jude" the fifth best of all time, with "Let It Be" failing to crack the top twenty.

Daniel Radcliffe on the Differences Between 'Deathly Hallow' Parts 1 and 2

Photobucket

Daniel Radcliffe says Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 will be much different than the penultimate installment in the epic franchise, which is now in theaters.

"The last movie is going to be really, really fast-paced and a load of action in it, and it is like a war film," Radcliffe told Reuters. "If we had done this book in one film, the stuff that would have got cut is most of this film."

However, it's Part 1 that the actor finds more appealing because it contains the most character development.

Part 1, Radcliffe added, is "so sedate compared to what the next one is going to be like. The next film, because you've had all the plot set up already, you can just kind of enjoy the insanity of all the action."

Radcliffe also said that the cast and crew felt a tremendous amount of pressure to get the final two films just right. As a result, some scenes were being rewritten the day before they were shot.

"It was constantly moving and had a less settled feel than the other ones had had," he said.

Deathly Hallows Part 1 opened Friday with a franchise-best $125.1 million bow, winning the weekend. Part 2 is scheduled to open in July. ABC Family recently acquired TV rights to both movies.

James Franco steals the show in 127 hours, drawing on his physicality and wit to create a character who isn’t exactly Aron Ralston – but is faithful nonetheless to what Ralston endured.
In an interview with December’s issue of Outside magazine, Franco talks about creating a character that’s a mix of Ralston, Neal Cassady and MacGyver.

Is Mariah Carey pregnant with twins?

Mariah Carey may have a double dose of baby joy when she gives birth! The mom-to-be, who is expecting with husband Nick Cannon, may have let it slip that she's having more than just one child.

While promoting Merry Christmas II You, Mariah said she sings songs from her new album to her baby bump. In an interview with Radio Disney's Ernie D. set to air Tuesday, Mariah joked, "I just hope that they don't turn out hating Christmas!"

Hmmm... was that a slip of the tongue? Only time will tell!

It could be a general "they", like she doesn't know what the sex of the baby is and just referred to him or her as they. Or they could be having twins.

If Wagner wins, X Factor is dead.

Dermot O'Leary says the show can't stop Wagner from winning.

Tv Host Dermot O'Leary says he wants a great singer to triumph on X Factor - but admits the show is powerless to stop tone deaf Wagner winning.

In his first in-depth interview of the year, the show's frontman gives his verdicts on the remaining acts and reveals exactly what is going on backstage.


Speaking about the prospect of controversial Brazilian Wagner winning, Dermot says: "You hope someone really good wins it, for the credibility of the show. That has to happen, but I have no control over that. The judges really don't have any control over that, it is the public - and that's the way it should be."

In an exclusive chat, Dermot also reveals how judges' rows are so vicious this year that he "runs away" to avoid being dragged in. He desperately wants the American X Factor job and will be "gutted" if he doesn't get it.

Backstage fights between Wagner and One Direction are like "an old lion and little cubs". Katie Waissel is "a bit of a princess" but he was pleased she got through last week.

Asked what he thinks of Wagner, diplomatic Dermot clearly found it hard not to be too negative. He says: "Wagner is so out there. He has had an incredible ride and even though he is not everyone's cup of tea he still hasn't been in the bottom two. And as weird as people think that is you can't argue with it. I love the fact he is in the competition but I have never met anyone who has voted for him."

20th Anniversary of HOME ALONE

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In 1990, “Home Alone” opened to theaters across the U.S.A.

Written by the legendary John Hughes, “Home Alone” is our favorite story of a kid who protects his home from burglars over Christmas.

    Some facts about the movie:
  • “Home Alone” was the number one film at the box office for 12 straight weeks.
  • “Home Alone” won an Academy Award for Best Original Score.
  • The first “Home Alone” video game was released in 1991.
  • “Home Alone” has grossed more than 476-million-dollars worldwide.
  • Although the part was written especially for Macaulay Culkin by John Hughes, several hundred other boys were auditioned by director Chris Columbus just because he wanted to confirm that Culkin was right for the part.


Macaulay Culkin was turned into a star, and Joe Pesci managed to keep his langauge clean enough to give “Home Alone” a PG rating. John Williams composed the movie’s score.

Frodo Baggins OWNS Harry Potter




The Similarities Between the Potter and LOTR Universes
Fantasy stories generally lift from the same mythological source bank. Actually, if you want to get super scholarly and esoteric about it, every story (especially the more sword-and-sorcery themed variety) is the same basic "hero's journey" archetype detailed by Joseph Campbell. But fantasy stories -- King Arthur, Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, Willow, Peter Pan, Conan the Barbarian -- build their world out of the same objects. You have magicians, dragons, unicorns, gnomes, and elves popping up to do battle, and they've made their way from medieval tapestries and texts to our modern movie screens.
Many writers, such as the brilliant J.R.R. Tolkien, were scholars of language and literature in their own right and used original sources to craft their world. Middle-earth is a wonderful blend of Finnish, Norse, and Anglo-Saxon mythology, though it's most famous inhabitants came to life in the back of an exam book. One day, Tolkien scribbled "In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit," and an entire saga was born after he decided to find out what a hobbit was.
Harry Potter came to life in a similar manner as J.K. Rowling gazed out of a train window, and imagined a lonely boy speeding off to a new world. Rowling crafted a mythology that's nearly as complex as Tolkien's. (A glance through Harry Potter's Wikipedia reveals family lineages, diseases, and battles not even discussed in the seven books.) But Rowling was a canny crafter of worlds, and her wizards borrow from Arthurian legend, Greek mythology, medieval history, and notably from Tolkien himself. Some might call it uncreative theft (and there are certainly a few eye-rolling grabs), but Rowling did it in such a way that Potter is simply the latest in a tradition that includes Merlin and Gandalf. It's one big mythology rather than an independent one.
For those who have either never read Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, or lack the silly elephantine memory to categorize the similarities, I've taken up the task. I've ignored obvious and common stuff -- such as Harry and Frodo enjoying a similar "hero's journey," wizards with beards and pointy hats, fights with dragons and trolls -- and focused on particular themes, objects, and scenes. You'll either come away with a deeper appreciation of both stories, or dismayed at their parallels. You may also laugh at me for being obsessive enough to rattle it off, but hey, this is the stuff that wins trivia contests.

Kirsten Dunst got flowers from Ryan Gosling

KIRSTEN Dunst says Ryan Gosling gave her flowers on the set of their new movie All Good Things — because he felt bad about pulling her hair during one of the scenes.

The actress was gifted the bouquet by movie hunk Ryan after he had to act out a fight scene in which she was dragged by her famous red hair.

“It visibly bothered him in the scene where he rips me up by my hair at my mother’s house,” says Kirsten.
“We had a stunt guy there and he was like, ‘Get her by the roots! It doesn’t hurt as much.’ But also I went with him — it wasn’t like I was pulling against him or anything, so it didn’t hurt me. But he was so upset doing that that he sent me flowers the next day. So it was hard for him.”

Earlier this month, it was reported that Dunst’s nearest and dearest recently staged an impromptu intervention after Dunst appeared to go on an out-of-control booze binge.
“Kirsten got stinking drunk on vodka tonics at an after-concert party at the Hollywood Hills home of Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine in early October,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“She staggered around the room, bumping into furniture while trying to dance. She was completely out of it.
“Kirsten’s friends were so alarmed at her behavior they pulled her aside on the spot and told her she needed to go back to rehab.
“It wasn’t the ideal place for an intervention, but they felt they had no choice.”
Dunst — who did a six-week rehab term at the Cirque Lodge in Utah in February 2008 — has never admitted to having a drinking problem. While at the treatment center, she insisted she was being treated for depression, not alcohol.

Law & Order Megapost: 12 Things You Didn't Know + Pics & Updates



If you’ve ever turned on a television, odds are you’ve seen Law & Order. Since its debut in 1990, it’s been a steady presence in our lives, delivering on the promise of crimes that needs to be solved and cases that need to be closed. A stream of actors have travelled through the district in its 20-year history, some moving on to better things, others moving on to Congress. It’s become a juggernaut of the entertainment industry, and although it’s been on for decades, it’s still fresh.

The show is a bare-bones look at the criminal justice system, one that creator Dick Wolf based on several dramas that came before it. One that he had hoped would be “real,” but “optimistic.” Whether or not he succeeded in that goal we leave up to you. But when all’s said and done, the court is adjourned and the jury’s gone home, there’s no denying the impact the series has had on our view of the criminal justice system and on similar programming since. Regardless of how real its portrayed, however, Law & Order is a TV show, one that depends on twists and turns to keep our attention, and despite Dick Wolf’s hopes to keep it real, you can’t deny that it’s partly responsible for the idealistic visions people have today of what cops and lawyers do, just like the skewed perceptions of the bored criminologists in the comedic procedural Show Murder Squad.

But despite its overwhelming presence in our communal pop culture group mind, there’s quite a bit about Law & Order – the procedural mothership – that isn’t necessarily public knowledge.

Pink Misses Getting Into Fights

Pink misses having "a real good fight".

The rowdy 'Raise A Glass' singer - who recently revealed she is pregnant with her first baby by her motocross star husband - said she pines for the days when people could have a physical altercation to settle their differences without getting their lawyers involved.

The 31-year-old star told The Sun newspaper: "A real good fight - it's been years. And you know what? I miss it, I really miss scrapping. I've become quite boring in my old age. I stopped getting in fights, I stopped beating people up. I mean, back in the day people could just punch each other, get over it and be friends the next day. Now it's lawsuits, it's boring, just boring."

Speaking of her pregnancy - which she confirmed on US TV to host Ellen DeGeneres earlier this month - Pink said she and Carey had wanted to keep it a secret longer, and were "nervous" about releasing the news because she has previously suffered a miscarriage.

She said: "We wanted to wait and not talk about it for a while. But the world started talking about it last week so our parents had to hear it through the radio."

Pink - real name Alecia Moore - also admitted she doesn't know the sex of her child, but "thinks" it will be a girl, which has given her cause for concern.

She joked: "My mom has always wished me a daughter just like me. I'm terrified one of us will go to jail!"

Pink's 'Greatest Hits... So Far!!!' is out now.

6 Most Awesome Women in the Harry Potter Books and Movies

Most children's entertainment depicts female characters in ways that bolster gender stereotypes. But the Harry Potter universe offers up many great feminist heroines.

Finally, it is here. Last week, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 arrived in movie theaters. Waiting to greet it were hundreds of thousands of devoted and nerdy fans of J.K. Rowling’s remarkable books, as well as of the movie franchise they have spawned. The Potter series is remarkable for many reasons. But one of the best things about it is that Rowling created a host of female characters who are smart, competent and courageous, women who defend themselves and others, and who defy gender stereotypes.

Does Winning 'American Idol' Even Matter Anymore?

 

When "American Idol" first launched in 2002, the fairytale idea was that the show would instantly transform an unsigned unknown into the biggest pop star in the country. And for a while, that seemed to be the case--the first winner, Kelly Clarkson, sold millions of albums and singles right out of the box, as did her immediate successors, Ruben Studdard and Fantasia Barrino. But, as Fantasia herself could tell you, life is not a fairytale. So as "Idol" churned out champs season after season, these singers started to experience the same struggles, setbacks, and sales slumps faced by any other musical act. Not even Kelly was immune.

Winona Ryder apologizes to Natalie Portman



Winona Ryder sent a message of apology to Natalie Portman after filming "Black Swan". The 39-year-old actress admits she struggled with portraying the bad temper and cruel nature of ousted prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre in the forthcoming psychological thriller, and hated the thought of having to be unkind to her co-star.

"I wrote to Natalie and got her something when I had finished filming, saying 'I'm so sorry I had to say all those horrible things,' " she said. "The scene where I trash my dressing room was my last scene. I remember my first boyfriend used to smash everything - at 18 everything is dramatic."

"So I took an Evian bottle and tried to break it really meekly. I couldn't do it and then he made fun of me. And even in that dressing room scene I was like, 'Sorry! Sorry! Sorry!' "

Despite portraying a ballerina in the film, Winona was grateful not to have to take dance lessons for the role because of a bad experience she had when she was younger. She explained to Total Film magazine, "I just had to do all those poses for the poster that was in the movie but Natalie trained for a year."

"I took one class when I was little and I remember the woman was so mean. I started crying and never went back."

Flawless man talks about the art of music videos and other flawless things


Damon Albarn, the key creative force behind the Gorillaz, isn't a big fan of the way record labels treated music videos in the past.

"They never really got it together to commercialize video production in the way that they got it together with (songs and CDs)," Albarn said. "I think that was a bad precedent that the musicians just gave away visuals endlessly for nothing."

Today, music videos aren't just played on channels like MTV and BET, they're being sold on Apple Inc.'s iTunes, and have a much larger presence on the Internet. But Albarn says the lack of those kinds of methods in the past is part of the reason why the cartoon-based Gorillaz are around now.

"Our reason for existing was primarily to try and put some new energy into that whole idea of what music and visuals can do together," he said.

Albarn and his virtual band just wrapped up an arena tour this month, which saw them promoting their latest critically acclaimed disc, "Plastic Beach."

The 42-year-old English musician — whose musical credits include Blur and The Good, the Bad & the Queen — talked about the band's success in a recent interview with The Associated Press.

Billy Bob Blames Violent Video Games for Horrible Movies

by Andy Chalk

It's hard to deny that Hollywood cranks out a lot of garbage. Specific definitions of "garbage" may vary but I think most of us can agree that no matter how you look at it, there's a lot of it. What isn't so clear is precisely why that is. Is it because of the famous Shakespearean limit on the number of stories there are to tell? Or has the movie industry simply realized that it can phone everything in and still rake in bazillions of dollars year after year?

Billy Bob Thorton, the star of such reputable films full of artistic integrity like Eagle Eye, Mr. Woodcock and Bad Santa, has his own ideas about where the trouble lies. "We're living in a time when we're making - in my humble opinion - the worst movies in history," he told the Telegraph. "They're geared toward the videogame-playing generation. And these videogames, which I'm on my son about constantly, these games are people killing for fun, and I think traditionally in movies, there's always been some kind of lesson in the violent movies."

Thorton's latest movie is called Faster, in which he stars as a cop on the trail of an ex-con played by Dwayne Johnson, who's "on a bloody quest for revenge against the people who set him up." It sounds like a fairly straightforward Hollywood action vehicle but Thorton claimed there's a lot more to it.

"This movie doesn't say, 'Oh, here's this fun guy and we're going to do this tongue-in-cheek character right out of a videogame who likes to destroy things' and all this kind of thing," he continued. "This movie actually shows what prisons create, what murder creates. It shows this perpetual, violent string of events."

I'm inclined to agree that the attention span of mainstream entertainment consumers isn't what it used to be, but I think Billy Bob is making the same mistake that a great many other people have: confusing the medium with the message. It's the equivalent of watching Freddy vs. Jason and declaring that the film industry is all about, well, "people killing for fun." Hollywood may be a crap factory, but that's Hollywood's problem.
