Oscars boss explains Bardem and Brolin's kiss omission

An Oscars producer has denied deliberately censoring a kiss between Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin from the Academy Awards telecast.

The No Country For Old Men co-stars appeared onstage on Sunday to present a trophy together, greeting one another by dancing and exchanging a kiss.

Home viewers did not see their embrace as the cameras cut to an extended shot of Bardem's wife Penelope Cruz in the audience - a move which sparked speculation TV bosses wanted to hide the actors' clinch.

But Bruce Cohen, one of two producers for the show, is adamant he would have been thrilled to broadcast the smooch, insisting it would have made a "great TV moment".

He tells, "It (the dance and the kiss) was unscripted, and the plan in the (outside broadcast) truck was always to cut to Penelope in the audience applauding Josh's and Javier's introduction, so that is what happened, just as they were starting to dance.

"Josh and Javier's moment (I saw them start to dance, but, to be honest, I have no idea if they kissed - that's the first I've heard of that) would have made a great TV moment, but since no one knew it was coming, we cut to the gorgeous Ms. Cruz as planned. By the time we cut back from her close-up, Josh and Javier were walking to the podium."


Police visit Chelsea training ground as part of investigation into Ashley Cole shooting incident

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Surrey police have visited Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham as part of their investigation into the accidental shooting of a 21-year-old student by Ashley Cole.

Neither Cole nor Tom Cowan, who is on a year’s placement from Loughborough University with Chelsea’s sports science department, have yet been interviewed by the police following the incident in one of the dressing rooms.

The police contacted Chelsea on Monday morning after reports emerged on Sunday that Cole had fired an air rifle at Cowan, who needed medical treatment for the wound caused by a lead pellet which was fired at him from just five feet.

Officers wanted to ascertain who was responsible for the training ground and are believed to have travelled to the facility on Tuesday. No decision has been taken on whether Cole could face charges.

A police spokesman said: “We have made contact with the club and inquiries are ongoing. Nothing has been finalised yet.”

No formal complaint has been made following the incident and it remains unlikely that Cole will be charged. The police could investigate if any offence has taken place under the Firearms Act 1968 or Offence Against the Person Act 1861.

With regards to air rifles, Home Office guidelines state: “it is an offence for any person shooting on private land, regardless of age, to use an air weapon for firing a pellet beyond the boundaries of the premises”.

The incident took place in the training ground, therefore on private property, and the rifle was not fired in a public place.

Neither Cole, Cowan nor Chelsea reported the incident which happened on Sunday February 20.

Cole is understood to have been disciplined for the incident — which could amount to a two-week fine, the equivalent of £250,000 — although Chelsea are refusing to reveal the details.

The 30-year-old has apologised privately to Cowan but has not, as yet, issued a public apology. It may well be that he is waiting for the police to conclude investigations.

Despite the outcry sources close to Cole have claimed that the incident has been blown out of all proportion — a view privately shared by some at Chelsea — that the injuries sustained by Cowan have been exaggerated and even that the weapon did not belong to the player.

It is understood, however, that Cole was responsible for bringing the .22 rifle into the training ground with manager Carlo Ancelotti confirming that the player will face sanctions for the accident and “appropriate action” had been taken.

However, manager Carlo Ancelotti, who said he had no idea the player had brought the gun into the training ground, has insisted he has not considered sacking Cole for the offence.

“We have to support him,” he said. “It would be very different if he had not said sorry. We are really disappointed for the guy who was involved and was a victim of this.”

Ancelotti will address the media again today ahead of Monday’s Premier League match away to Blackpool.

Fans gets antsy as Lady Gaga starts concert over two hours late

Image and video hosting by TinyPic</a>

Lady Gaga’s late start at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto Thursday night got the best of some of her fans.

“Everyone started booing at one point,” Nicole Rudd, 27, said of the crowd reaction during the lengthy wait for the singer to come on stage.

The show kicked off at 8 p.m. with an opening act, but Lady Gaga didn’t take the stage until close to 10:30.

“We were really excited, but then we got discouraged because we were waiting for so long,” Rudd said, adding they were forced to listen to piped-in Michael Jackson songs “over and over and over” during the wait.

Crystal Lewis, 27, worried that the late start meant she wouldn’t see the whole show: “I’m pretty sure the last train is like midnight. We were so excited. It’s such a downer.”

Donna Clements brought her 12-year-old son to the show. After waiting for what seemed like hours, “He was actually saying ‘Mom, let’s go for dinner instead.’”

“But then she came on and he was freaking out,” Clements added.

The late start was quickly forgotten.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Avengers are coming to Cleveland.

Gov. John Kasich announced that the upcoming Marvel movie featuring the superhero team The Avengers, scheduled for a 2012 release, will be filmed in Cleveland.

He made the announcement before Mayor Frank Jackson's State of the City address this afternoon at the City Club.

"I'm really pleased that the city is going to get this movie," he said. "It's fantastic. It required quick and hard work between the community here and the state of Ohio, something that hasn't always happened. We won another one from Michigan. I'm thrilled we are going to have this here. I'm just bucking for a part as Governator 2."

The news was also confirmed by Katie Sabatino, publicist for the Ohio Film Office, who said the agreement was made with Marvel Comics after negotiations.

"We have been in dialogue with Marvel Comics all week and we finally reached an agreement," she said. "We're very excited about it."

The Avengers movie, directed by Joss Whedon, will feature big-name actors reprising their superhero roles from previous films, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man; Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow.

Meet Zac Hanson’s Baby Girl, Junia Rosa Ruth!

The 11-week-old daughter of Zac Hanson and his wife Kate arrived just before Christmas, and her proud parents say it’s been a smooth, happy ride ever since.

"Junia is such a sweet gift," says the Hanson drummer, 25, who also has a son Shepherd, who turns 3 in May. "It has been so much fun to get to know her and to watch her along with her big brother grow and change so quickly."

These days, Zac is likely tops on his 5 1/2-year-old niece Penelope's list — until now, Taylor Hanson's daughter, been holding her own as the lone lady among six little boys in the family (her three brothers and as many boy cousins).

"We are looking forward to bringing Junia along on all of our adventures," adds the proud papa, "and showing her the world."

Not to mention the family business. Junia’s brother and her six cousins (Taylor has four kids; Isaac Hanson has two) have gone on tour with their dads' band, and there are opportunities for music video cameos, too.

Following Ezra, 8, (Taylor’s oldest son) and Penelope’s appearance in the band’s hit video for "Thinkin' Bout Something", a trio of other little Hansons pop up in their new one.

Just past the three-minute mark and elsewhere in the video for the band’s new single, "Give a Little," fans can spot Isaac’s sons Everett, who turns 4 in April, and Monroe, 2 1/2, in addition to Taylor’s son River, 4 1/. (His youngest son, Viggo, 2, sat this one out.)

Time to get a pair of dancin' shoes, Junia!


Mods, the birth announcement was posted, but this is a new article.

I still can't effing believe Zac is a dad. I feel so old. That being said, what an unflattering pic of him. Although his bbs are effing adorable and his wife is gorgeous.

Oh, here's the YouTube video for the "Give a Little" music video, too. The MTV one posted when it first came out wasn't working for some of you, so you're welcome:

Dancing!Zac thanks you for your time.

Gaga: Roseland Ballroom (My Flower!!!)


She did an acoustic version with her on her lap at the piano, then at the end she did the Grammy performance style / fast-paced BTW performance, and Maria joined her after the organ part. They both danced together at the end of the catwalk in the middle.

Ten-year-old Canadian singing sensation Maria Aragon had her big moment Thursday night, joining Lady Gaga onstage for a duet of “Born This Way” in front of a roaring crowd at the Air Canada Centre. Aragon sat on Gaga’s lap at a black grand piano, taking the lead on vocals. With a stuffed orange monkey slung around her neck, Aragon thanked her family and friends in Winnipeg, as well as the enthusiastic Toronto audience. “I just want to thank all of you for your support,” said Aragon, clad in a black leather jacket, a pink hoodie, sparkling black pants and a pair of high-top sneakers. Gaga got choked up following the duet, calling Aragon “Lady Gloria.” “Thank you for being here to witness such a beautiful girl,” said Gaga, who then flubbed the introduction to her next song.
“See? She made me all nervous, she’s such a superstar,” she added

Also, she was 2 hours late in starting and she stage dived as well!!!!

Runway To Sidewalk – Lady Gaga In Thierry Mugler

For those who thought her outfit was self-made..

Nicola Formichetti presented his first womenswear collection for Thierry Mugler last night in Paris.

The supermodel and star attraction for his Fall 2011 presentation was Lady GaGa, who he has been working with for some time now.

Last night Lady GaGa gave the world a sneak preview of the Thierry Mulger Fall 2011 collection, as she was spotted arriving at the venue wearing a sheer animal print catsuit.

Later that same evening one of the models wore the same catsuit on the runway.

GaGa of course added some ridiculously hard to walk in heels into the mix.

From the close up I can confirm that she’s only wearing panties under her catsuit.

You can see the whole Thierry Mugler Fall 2011 collection at Fashion Gone Rouge.

Here's the nut shell:  A Philly radio station flew a banner over Charlies house asking him to call. He heard the plane, came out to see what it was and decided to call b/c they "went to so much trouble". He said he was "deeply flattered" and they were "radicals".  (oh please)

While on the show he talked about the case and that violates the terms of his agreement with brook and now he could lost the kids all together.

When I arrive at the Soho hotel to interview Felicity Jones, there are two paps, Ian and Perry, lurking outside the entrance. They're after Ed Westwick, Jones's co-star in the new British romcom Chalet Girl who is best known for his role in Gossip Girl, and there's also the prospect of a few leftover celebs from the film's premiere the night before – Bill Nighy, who plays the father, and Brooke Shields, the mother. And what about Felicity Jones?

Rihanna enjoyed a saucy shopping trip to a Sydney sex shop yesterday.

The Rude Boy singer visited The Tool Shed - a store that sells sex toys, bondage gear and naughty films - on a pre-arranged trip that gave Ri-Ri exclusive access to all the gear.

'I can't say what Rihanna did or what she bought,'
says a shop spokesman.

'It's top secret.'

The pop superstar, who's famed for her risque on-stage outfits and performances, wore high-waisted tailored camel trousers - which needed some adjusting - and a grey knitted crop top for her day out.

Ri-Ri came away from the store holding a cute and innocent cuddly rabbit, while 2 black bags were loaded into her car.

Russell Brand speaks about Katy Perry's product placement comments

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Comic Russell Brand has spoken out about his wife Katy Perry's comments about product placement.

Perry, 26, was annoyed when her comments about the use of product placement were taken out of context and it was implied she was speaking about a version of Britney Spears' video for Hold It Against Me.

Speaking at the Oscars, Brand said to MTV News: 'I think those situations are made up in the papers and the media to distract people from our spirituality and the truth, and it distracts us from the way the economic situation of the world keeps certain people trapped on this plateau. Let's all rise up and join together. Unite!'

Perry's comments on her Twitter page came when she was asked about product placement by another artist.

She wrote: 'Do it with style and grace… Not so in [your] face like some. [You] have to get creative with it. Some artists don't care [though, and you] can tell.'

NeNe Leakes & La Toya Jackson aren't feeling Star Jones

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
NeNe Leakes has to be used to controversy as one of Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta," so it isn't a surprise to us that her stint on NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" has generated some headlines of its own. We met up with NeNe after her appearance on the KTLA News Morning Show to talk about the NBC show and the headlines it's generating for her.

"Going into 'Celebrity Apprentice,' I didn't have any strategies," NeNe tells Zap2it. "I was a little scared going there. I saw Donald and I thought that he was scary. You know, mean-mugging you and not really smiling. So, I was really scared of that. I just went in, thinking to myself that I'm just here to fight for my charity and I don't want to be voted off first. That's all I thought."

Recently, NeNe appeared on "The Wendy Williams Show" and said former "The View" co-host and "Apprentice" cast mate Star Jones is "special," but not in a good way. In response, Star said that NeNe contributed to the stereotype of the "bombastic black woman" and that she intimidated the other African American women on the show.

"I'm not surprised that Star used the 'black women need to get along. Oh, she's just being a black woman being mad or yelling or whatever,'"
NeNe says. "She has no fault in this. So, let's just say that. You can not argue by yourself."

Gabrielle Union Cast in FOX TV Pilot, "Little in Common"

Gabrielle Union has landed a role in Fox's pilot Little In Common.

The comedy focuses on three families whose children play little league sports together.

Rob Corddry and Paula Marshall will star as members of the Weller family, who move from California to Austin.

They discover that their Latino neighbours, the Pachecos, raise their children very differently and also find out that their new African-American acquaintances, the Burlesons, take sport extremely seriously.

According to Deadline, Union has now signed up to play Nicole, the matriarch of the Burleson family. She is said to be a lobbyist who is determined to succeed.

Union will star alongside Kevin Hart, who was recently cast as Ty Burleson. She has previously worked on shows including FlashForward, Life and Ugly Betty.

Lindsay Lohan Is Talking Plea Bargain

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ ... Shawn Holley has been speaking with Danette Meyers about copping a plea in Lindsay's felony grand theft case -- the whole necklace thing -- but Meyers won't budge on six months in jail.

So ... we've learned Holley and Meyers will go to court next week and meet with Judge Keith Schwartz in his chambers. We're told Holley will ask the judge what sentence he'd hand down if Lindsay pleads guilty or no contest.

Sources familiar with the case and Judge Schwartz believe His Honor would probably go for a three-month sentence.

Our sources say both Meyers and Holley believe Lindsay will only do 20% of the actual sentence because of overcrowding. So, if Judge Schwartz gave Lindsay three months, she'd only serve 18 days.

Judge Schwartz is known as a settlement judge, so it's likely a deal can be struck ... IF Lindsay's willing to accept reality -- that she's going to do some jail time, no matter what.

J.J. Abrams has found the female lead for his new CBS drama Person of Interest. Vulture can exclusively report that Taraji P. Henson, most recently seen in Tyler Perry movies I Can Do Bad All by Myself and The Family That Preys (and an Oscar nominee for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), has been cast as a female detective named Carter on the series, joining the previously confirmed Michael Emerson on the show. Person tells the story of an ex-CIA agent who is recruited by a crazy billionaire to help fight crime in New York City. We're assuming Henson's Carter will team up with the as-yet uncast ex-CIA agent. Henson's last regular TV gigs were on ABC's Eli Stone and Boston Legal; she first gained notice letting the world know It's Hard Out There for a Pimp in Hustle & Flow.

Angela Bassett is set as a lead in ABC's drama pilot Identity. The project, from ABC Studios, Mark Gordon Co. and writer John Glenn, is an action procedural based on a British format, which centers on an elite police unit formed to combat the explosion of identity-related crime. Bassett will play Martha, the Special Agent in charge of the FBI's new Identity Crimes Unit. Bronx-tough Vassar graduate from Greenwich, Martha is determined to make a go of this division, using sophisticated technology combined with good old fashioned investigative methods. The casting extends Bassett's relationship with ABC, ABC Studios and producer Mark Gordon. Earlier this pilot season, she was attached to ABC's drama project One Police Plaza, which was developed for her through ABC Studios and studio-based Mark Gordon Co. In it, she was slated to play another top New York law enforcement officer, the city's first female commissioner. Bassett, repped by Gersh and Lighthouse, will next be seen in Jumping the Broom and Green Lantern. On TV, she most recently co-starred on the final season of ER.

Jennifer Hudson Spends Several Days in African Prison for "Winnie" Role

Few rise to fame as fast as Jennifer Hudson, who at a speed almost unheard of, flew from an unknown Chicago singer to placing seventh in American Idol to a Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner for Dreamgirls. It was Hudson’s own story as well as her look that drew in Winnie director Darrell Roodt and producer André Pieterse. The South African natives, whose youths were affected profoundly by the Mendelas, were struck with exactly what they needed to bring their vision of Winnie to life. According to Pieterse, there was no one else they would rather see take on the role of Winnie Mandela (now Winnie Madikizela-Mandela) than Hudson.

During an interview with Lorraine Ali of The Daily Beast, Hudson discusses her role in the biopic that follows Winnie Mandela’s life from early teens, her marriage to former South African President Nelson Mandela, her prominent role in the apartheid fight, and onward to the present. As if portraying the living horrors of Nelson Mandela’s ex-wife isn’t challenging enough, Hudson’s job was made more difficult by legal threats from Madikizela-Mandela’s lawyer to stop production of the film. Then, further broadening her challenge, Hudson chose to confine herself to the prison cell set for several days in an attempt to “experience some of the hell that woman went through.”

Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund CONFIRMED the $1 million check received from Beyonce

Beyonce Donated Gadhafi Money To Haiti Relief Last Year
Music industry urges other stars who played for Libyan dictator's family to donate their earnings.
By Gil Kaufman

Just days after singer Nelly Furtado announced that she planned to donate to charity money she received for playing a concert for the family of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, a spokesperson for Beyoncé said that the "Halo" singer had already done the same.

Documents obtained by the WikiLeaks website revealed that stars including Beyoncé, Usher and Mariah Carey had played big-paycheck gigs for Gadhafi. On Monday, Rolling Stone magazine reported that the industry was urging the stars (noting that rapper 50 Cent had also played such gigs) to return the money they earned for the concerts.

"They've done it for tons of artists," an unnamed music-business source told the magazine about lavish parties by Gadhafi's son, Muatassim, which are reportedly often "jammed" with supermodels. "Those guys are all over the world."

The original UK series is in it's fifth season, which also signifies a brand new cast as well, so the Skins brand is at a point of new beginnings on both fronts and is under a serious storm of scrutiny in both favorable and unfavorable lights.

Charlie Sheen & The Disposable Woman

Okay, so I'm gonna try my level best to sum this up for the tl;dr crowd. Anna Holmes of Jezebel wrote this opinion piece on Charlie Sheen and his history of abuse of women. Despite his checkered past (and present), Sheen has had remarkable success over the past decade and became the highest paid television actor EVER. Even after his latest... um, Sheenanigans or whatever, he's still beloved, especially by the internet. Buzzfeed added a winning tag; Sheen gained over a million followers on Twitter overnight. Why is it okay for Sheen to smack around his lady friends, to go on druggy binges, but God forbid Britney Spears loses it or Lindsay Lohan over-indulges, right? Well, Holmes argues that the reason we dismiss his trespasses is because of society's perception of his companions. They're whores and golddiggers, so it's okay for him to abuse him! There is also some commentary about how reality TV culture has inured us to view these types of women (i.e., Bad Girls Club and Rock of Love "skanks"] as disposable and somehow deserving of abuse. That's the gist of the article, anyway.

FORTY-THREE minutes into his “special live edition” with Charlie Sheen on Monday night, Piers Morgan finally got around to asking his guest a real question. Before that, Mr. Morgan and Mr. Sheen had mostly traded chuckles and anecdotes about multiday benders, inflated network salaries and meet-ups in Aspen, Colo. But then, after three commercial breaks, Mr. Morgan inquired, “Have you ever hit a woman?”

Two minutes later, with Mr. Morgan apparently satisfied with the actor’s answer that no, women should be “hugged and caressed,” that line of questioning was over.

That Mr. Morgan didn’t press the issue of domestic violence shouldn’t have come as any surprise. CBS executives, not to mention the millions of viewers of his “family” sitcom “Two and a Half Men,” have consistently turned a blind eye toward Mr. Sheen’s history of abusing women. Part of this, of course, is about money. The actor’s F-18 of an id — to borrow a metaphor from Mr. Sheen himself — had long provided the show a steady stream of free publicity. It also helped make Mr. Sheen the highest-paid actor on television, at $1.2 million an episode.

But it’s also about apathy. Even now — after Mr. Sheen began carpet-bombing his bosses in radio rants, prompting CBS to shut down production on the show — observers still seem more entertained than outraged, tuning in to see him appear on every talk show on the planet and coming up with creative Internet memes based on his most colorful statements. And while his self-abuses are endlessly discussed, his abuse of women is barely broached.

Tickets for the “Warner Bros. Studio Tour London — The Making of Harry Potter” at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, the production home of Harry Potter for over a decade, will go on sale later this year. Check out for updates.

Q&A: Diplo On The Joys Of Dancehall, Kanye West, Social Work, Owning A Label, And Twitter

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Where do we even start with someone like Diplo? Wes Pentz is a DJ at his core, but he's also a producer (having worked with Lil Jon, Kanye West, and most notoriously M.I.A.), the founder of left-field record label Mad Decent, and one half of dancehall production pair Major Lazer. Back in the mid-aughts, he and fellow Hollertronix cohort/Philly local Low Budget adopted an attitude of doing whatever the heck they wanted, just as long as it sounded interesting and made people dance. From their first mixtape Never Scared to their sweat-box dance parties in a small Ukranian club, the pair threw together '80s hits, rap, Baltimore club, reggae, rock, and everything from snap to baile funk side by side. It was something that wasn't necessarily done back then, but has been embraced by party DJs ever since, introducing crowds to different kinds of music they might not initially have wanted to hear. And that's what Diplo's still best at today.

'Take Me Home Tonight' Star Topher Grace Falls For MTV After Hours Host Josh Horowitz

Love is patient, love is kind, and sometimes, love is just straight-up weird.

But no matter how inexplicable the sensation might be, there's simply no denying the urges of the heart when one falls for another. Take MTV After Hours host Josh Horowitz and "Take Me Home Tonight" star Topher Grace, for example. They met for the first time a year ago during the press junket for "Valentine's Day," and both men walked away from that encounter with permanently changed hearts and minds.

But the other thing about love is, it ain't easy. The road to romantic fulfillment is filled with obstacles, hardships and MTV's very own Sway Calloway. Watch the tumultuous and heartfelt journey of Josh and Topher's relationship in our latest episode of MTV After Hours.

Mike Myers is Just Chock Full of Surprises... Got Married in Secret... 5 Months Ago...TO A WOMAN!

It’s hard to find pictures of these two together even though they’ve been dating since 2006! But maybe that will change now that Mike Myers and Kelly Tisdale secretly tied the knot.

But then again, maybe not, since they had their wedding five months ago!

The New York Post’s Page Six reports that Mike and Kelly married!

A rep for Mike confirmed the news, saying they were married in a “beautiful” private ceremony.

Mike, 47, and Kelly, who is in her 30s, began dating in 2006. Kelly previously dated producer Moby in the ’90s and Mike was previously married for 12 years to Robin Ruzan.

Congratulations to the happy and secretive couple!

Ginnifer Goodwin ‘Legalizes’ Her Hair

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Ginnifer Goodwin takes her short hair seriously. So seriously, in fact, that she’s made it a legal issue. The actress tells InStyle she was tired of getting permission from studios in order to chop her locks (just like Emma Watson), so she consulted with her lawyer. “I now have a wig clause written into every one of my contracts,” she says, explaining that she can cut her hair whenever — and however — she likes.

So when she recently decided to go for an even shorter look, complete with shaved sides, it wasn’t hesitation holding her back — it was her bosses. “It didn’t take any courage,” Goodwin says of her cutting her hair. “It purely took getting permission from HBO and the folks behind Big Love. They owned every hair on my head!”

But just because Goodwin sports a shorter do doesn’t mean she’ll be limited in the roles she can play — she’ll just slip on a wig instead. “I find it hard to express myself when I’m growing out a very bad character haircut,” she explains. “As long as I can wear a wig, I can be any character and in real life I can be myself.”

Saucy Rihanna is clearly under the influence of her new lover Colin Farrell after splashing out on raunchy lingerie in a sex shop.

The singer and the Dublin movie star have been enjoying a string of secret dates after meeting last year on the Graham Norton Show.

The Irish Daily Mirror can reveal Colin has even invited the SOS star to Castleknock to meet his family.

And the 23-year-old Barbadian beauty was clearly stocking up on goodies for the special trip during the shop visit in Sydney.

A close friend of 34-year-old Colin's revealed last night: "Colin is bringing her to Ireland in the next couple of months to meet the family.

"Things are moving on pretty fast and Colin wants to show her a good night at home in Dublin. His parents can't wait to meet her."

Rihanna proved she is a Good Girl Gone Bad as she flashed photographers a cheeky grin while leaving notorious sex shop The Tool Shed.

New Jersey Housewife Jacqueline: I lost 30 pounds

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
One addition to the next season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Jacqueline Laurita's hot new bod! The Housewife star reveals how she trimmed off 30 pounds in the new issue of Life & Style.

Jacqueline gained 55 pounds while pregnant with her son Nicolas but after giving birth in June 2009, she still had 30 pounds to lose.

Thanks to regular workouts and Medifast meal replacements (including shakes, soups and bars, all supplemented with one meal of protein and veggies per day), the 5-foot-3 reality star has trimmed down to her current weight of 120 pounds. "I lost 12 pounds the first two weeks," Jacqueline, 40, tells Life & Style. "I'm able to get back into my old jeans -- I can't believe it!"

And she can't wait to show off her svelte figure on Real Housewives, which resumes later this year. "It's going to be the best season we've ever had," she says.


Ambur + Garry Out On A Movie Date


Teen Mom Amber Portwood and baby daddy Gary Shirley’s on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again…. relationship is back ON – and it appears to be rather serious. (If being together for more than two days consecutively without any know feloniously violent outbursts counts as “serious,” which in Amber and Gary’s case it does.)

Immediately after an Indiana court lifted the no-contact order between the pair, they were seen holding hands as they left the proceedings. A few days after that Gary uploaded a video of the two of them being quite intimate as they sang along to ’80s songs on YouTube, which was followed by photos of the couple shopping for promise rings before heading to an Oscar party in Indianapolis.

The latest Ambary sighting was in their hometown of Anderson as the lovebirds went out on a movie date to see The King’s Speech. (Obviously a result of paying attention during the Oscar party!)

Dr. Drew Pinsky is taking on another patient — whether or not he’s game to participate: The Celebrity Rehab host is partnering with Vh1 for a one-hour special focused on Charlie Sheen’s media meltdown, EW has learned exclusively. During the special, which will air on March 7 at 8 p.m., Dr. Drew will examine Sheen’s recent behavior and interviews in an attempt to determine “what could be wrong with him.” The name of the special: Vh1 News Presents: Charlie Sheen: Winning… or Losing It? with Dr. Drew.

Lupe Fiasco Contemplated Committing Suicide Over B.O.B’s “Nothing On You”

Recording artist Lupe Fiasco is gearing up for the upcoming release of his third studio album, “Lasers”. While on a promo run for the new LP, he revealed to The Guardian that he toyed with the idea of committing suicide during the making of the album. Particularly, after recording “Nothing On You” which eventually became a worldwide hit for labelmate B.O.B and Bruno Mars. Lupe Fiasco had originally recorded the song, but the chairman of Atlantic Records told him his verses and performance on the song were “wack”.

"That was the tipping point. It was less about the bruised ego but more the audacity of it. It was mentally destructive. I say it with a certain laissez-faire now because I’m past it, but back then, hearin’ that s**t, it f**ked me up. I was super-depressed, lightly suicidal, at moments medium suicidal – and if not suicidal, willing to just walk away from it all completely.”

Last year, Atlantic shelved his album before Lupe’s fans delivered a petition of 30,000 signatures to their offices. He finally received a release date, however, through all the blood, sweat and tears, that was put into getting it released, he reveals that he hates the new album.

I hate this album. I don’t hate the music, but I hate the process. When I look at it, I don’t see song titles and artwork, I see the fight – I see the emotions, the blood, sweat and tears. There are a couple of songs on there that I love; but Lasers is a little bit of what you love, a little bit of what you like, and a lot of what you had to do."   source 1, 2

Alex McCord Talks "Explosive" New Season of NYC Housewives

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
When Bravo delayed the premiere of the fourth season of The Real Housewives of New York City from February until April, it seemed producers were concerned with early reactions to the show. However, Housewife Alex McCord tells In Touch that such rumors were "started by gossip columnists" and that the upcoming season is full of drama.

"It's not about one Greek tragedy, because I know that viewers got kind of bored with that last time," Alex told In Touch at Cat Ommanney's Inbox Full book launch party on March 3. "It's a series of explosions, one after the other."

As for the newest addition to the cast, housewife Cindy Barshop will have a tough time replacing fan favorite Bethenny Frankel.

"She is certainly not the same as Bethenny — neither better nor worse,"
she said. "Everyone brings their own thing, and she definitely brings something to the cast."

This season, Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer, LuAnn de Lesseps and Alex all return as members of the original cast, making the NYC Housewives the most consistent of all the spin-offs.

"We all go in deep with each other because we all have a history together now," Alex said. "We know where everybody's buttons are — and I think that this is our best season yet!"

Phil Collins calls it quits

Phil Collins has indicated that he intends to end his rock career after learning that health problems will prevent him playing the drums again.

The 60-year-old star says he feels it is "a good time to stop" making music, adding: "I don't think anyone's going to miss me." He has hearing problems, a dislocated vertebra and nerve damage in his hands, all brought on by a lifetime spent hunched behind a drum kit. The songwriter also claims that listeners have grown "sick" of him and that there is no longer a place for him in the current music scene.

"I look at the MTV Music Awards and I think: 'I can't be in the same business as this'," Collins says in an interview with FHM magazine. I don't really belong to that world and I don't think anyone's going to miss me. I'm much happier just to write myself out of the script entirely. I'll go on a mysterious biking holiday and never return. That would be a great way to end the story, wouldn't it?"

'Baywatch' Star Jeremy Jackson -- I'm Addicted to Hormone Injections

Former "Baywatch" star Jeremy Jackson is entering "Celebrity Rehab" because he's addicted to hormone injections -- and fears his fitness obsession has taken over his life ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Jeremy -- who played Hobie on the show -- got into fitness a few years back as a way to help kick his meth addiction, and it worked ... but what used to be a healthy hobby spiraled out of control ... and now he fears for his life.

Sources close to Jeremy tell us, he's not only addicted to the gym -- he can't stop injecting HGH (Human Growth Hormone) and testosterone (an anabolic steroid).

We're told Jeremy even injects himself with vitamin B12 -- a procedure typically done by medical professionals -- and loads up on countless other supplements he fears are destroying his body.

But based on these JACKED photos taken days before he entered "Rehab" this week, you wouldn't guess it ...

Charlie Sheen Doesn't Even Write His Own Twitter

He dictates thru phone calls, to someone else to write on twitter for him, but who knows if he really even does that.

Two and a Half Men actor Charlie Sheen may or may not be “winning” in life at present, but after embracing Twitter he has claimed a rare honor: the “Fastest Time to Reach 1 Million Followers” according to the Guinness World Record.

But is @CharlieSheen really Charlie Sheen?

On Thursday night, he Tweeted: "The title of my book has finally been delivered thru vast and extensive Lunar channels. "Apocalypse Me" Warlock Latin for WINNING. c" On Friday, he Tweeted, “Thanks to you fabulous and perfect humans, we bludgeoned our way into the 2nd greatest book of all time. "The Guinness book" now complete. It has all of us within it's pages. most Twitter followers EVER, 24 hr period. they should change it's title; "The Guinness Book of Us".

Those were Sheen’s words, but it was not exactly him tweeting. Rather, it was @BobMaron, the star's self proclaimed Tweet Master, who is typing in those words after speaking personally with Sheen.

On TV Guide's Hollywood 411, airing Friday at 8pm Eastern, 7 Central,'s Senior Executive Editor @dylanshoward tells host Chris Harrison, “I’ll let you know a secret. He doesn’t actually do the tweets himself. He has a “tweet-master” as he calls it. He calls this person on the traditional cell phone, or the house phone when I was there, and says the message that he wants out.”


I am over this scandal, I hope he ends up unemployed and broke. His twitter is basically a publicity stunt.

Mike Huckabee backpedals from Portman attack

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee released a statement Friday, attempting to explain comments he made earlier this week about Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman "glamorizing" unwed pregnancy. According to Huckabee, the much-reported and largely criticized comments didn't constitute an "attack" or a "slam."

"In a recent media interview about my new book, A Simple Government, I discussed the first chapter, 'The Most Important Form of Government Is a Father, Mother, and Children,' " Huckabee said in the statement, according to Politico, referring to comments made in a radio interview Monday.

Huckabee then claimed that the controversial remarks that followed were made in response to a question about the pregnancy of Portman, who he called "extraordinary actor, very deserving of her recent Oscar." The potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate explained that he was "glad" Portman was planning to marry Benjamin Millepied, the father of her child, and that his comments weren't meant to be deprecating.

"However, contrary to what the Hollywood media reported, I did not 'slam' or 'attack' Natalie Portman, nor did I criticize the hardworking single mothers in our country," he said. "My comments were about the statistical reality that most single moms are very poor, under-educated, can't get a job, and if it weren't for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death. That's the story that we're not seeing, and it's unfortunate that society often glorifies and glamorizes the idea of having children out of wedlock."

THIS IS A SPICE GIRLS POST: Spice Girls split over plans to release album

The Spice Girls are split over plans to release an album of their previously unheard old songs.

Mel B and Mel C back putting out some of the 60 tracks – recorded over the past 15 years
and said to include up to four surefire No1s. But Victoria Beckham is against the idea as she wants to focus on her fashion career. And Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton oppose it because band manager Simon Fuller – also in charge of their solo careers – is against.

A source admitted the row had led to “friction” between the girls. The insider went on: “From a possible 60 tracks, three or four would be gua­ranteed No1s and there’s definitely a solid album’s worth from the songs.

Although such a release would generate millions, it’s not about the money."

Brie Larson Cast as Female Lead in 21 Jump Street

An actress has finally stepped in to break up the male monotony of Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, and Ice Cube’s 21 Jump Street adaptation. According to Deadline, Scott Pilgrim vs the World star Brie Larson has been cast as the female lead in the feature based on the 80s TV series of the same name.


Coincidentally, Larson just wrapped production on the Oren Moverman drama Rampart, which also stars Ice Cube so this will be a reunion of sorts for the duo. The actress is also known for her work on the Showtime original series “The United States of Tara,” where she plays the daughter of Toni Collette’s character.

Sticking with the theme of the original show, 21 Jump Street will center on a group of cops posing as teens and college students at schools. Cube will play their boss, because he’s no spring chicken. The film will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and produced by Neil Moritz.
