Kim Zolciak & Kroy Biermann Welcome Son Kroy Jagger

Congratulations are in order for reality TV starlet Kim Zolciak and her boyfriend, Atlanta Falcons star Kroy Biermann!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star took to Twitter on Tuesday (May 31) to announce the arrival of their son: "@biermann71 and I are happy to announce the birth of our son today Kroy Jagger Biermann is healthy & beautiful We are so in love!"

No doubt the 33-year-old Tardy for the Party singer had perfect hair for the birth! "Hell, yes, I’m going to have my wig on,” the reality TV star recently said of her delivery room plans. “I can’t say it will stay on, but I’m going to try.”

Kim is also mom to two daughters, Brielle, 14, and Arianna, 9, from a previous marriage.

Emmy Roundtable: Drama Actresses

Seven Emmy contenders open up about fame, family and how to get your way on set (and still be liked).

On a recent Saturday afternoon, seven very different women from seven very different TV shows reached a consensus: Working in television is hard work. But for these actresses, the long hours and sleepless nights have paid off: Connie Britton (DirectTV/NBC's Friday Night Lights), Christina Hendricks (AMC's Mad Men), Regina King (TNT's Southland), Melissa Leo (HBO's Treme), Julianna Margulies (CBS' The Good Wife), Kelly Macdonald (HBO's Boardwalk Empire) and Katey Sagal (FX's Sons of Anarchy) are each poised to contend in the most exciting -- and unpredictable -- lead and supporting drama races in history. The actresses gathered April 30 at Siren Studios in Hollywood to talk about their craft in a conversation moderated by THR's Matthew Belloni and Stacey Wilson.

Metro - KE$HA: ‘My fans and I are taking over’

Ke$ha: "My fans and I are taking over"

Like most of Ke$ha’s songs — including chart-busters “Tik Tok” and “We R Who We R” — her song “Crazy Beautiful Life,” from her album, “Cannibal,” is a fine example of art imitating her … crazy beautiful life. At one point she sings, “Got here by runnin’ my mouth”  — which is quite true in this interview.

What is your favorite line to sing these days?

I love to sing the line in “We R Who We R”: “We’re running this town just like a club” because my fans and I are a cult of rowdy misfits and we’re taking over! And at my shows, when we’re all there together, I can really feel our collective energy — and that line feels like a mantra for us.

There’s definitely humor in some of your lyrics, but you deliver them without laughing.

I have no idea what you mean. What’s funny about my lyrics? They’re all dead serious, like the line about the “mangina.” And the line about my anus is especially serious.

Buffy Stars: Where are they now?

Before "Twilight's" Bella and before "True Blood's" Sookie, one woman reigned over the fang-toothed creatures of the night: Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Sarah Michelle Gellar became a teen queen thanks to the hit TV series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," which took the small screen by storm between 1997 and 2003. She's returning to TV this fall with the thriller "Ringer," in which she plays a woman on the run who takes on the identity of her twin sister after she mysteriously disappears.

Speaking of disappearing -- while some of the cast of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" failed to transition from the drama into bigger and better Hollywood projects, others, including Gellar, have stood the test of time. Below, check out what Gellar and four of her "Buffy" co-stars have done since the show went off the air:

Dominic West: I drank Diet Coke and watched Star Trek with Eminem

Dominic West talks about hanging out with Eminen, The Wire and the weirdest thing a fan has ever done.

Do you think people recognising you just as McNulty is fading?

I hope not. That’s the only reason anyone knows who the hell I am. And people are still coming to The Wire for the first time, so I’m riding that for as long as possible.

It got you a slot on the Eminem album.

Yes. Has he done an album since then? He has? F***er! He said he’d get me in on it. I was looking forward to another night with Marshall. We drank Diet Coke and watched, um, Star Trek. He’s the sweetest, nicest guy. He’d seen The Wire four times.

Sony releases first official trailer for 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'

Sony has released the first official trailer for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, following a (purportedly) leaked red-band trailer that hit the web over the weekend. David Fincher directs this adaptation of the popular book by Stieg Larsson. Rooney Mara stars as Lisbeth Salander, the young heroine who investigates the Vanger family with journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig). Stellan Skarsgård, Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer, and Joely Richardson also star. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opens December 21.

The two trailers are stylistically identical, though my memory suggests that many of the individual shots differ. (Certainly less side boob in this green band version.) Again set to the pulsing beat of Karen O’s cover of “Immigrant Song,” the new trailer is a neat piece of editing without offering any real information about the movie. And for now, given the pedigree, that’s more than enough.

Kim Kardashian’s Engagement Ring: What You Can’t See

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kim Kardashian‘s stunning 20.5-carat engagement ring is obviously big. It’s so big, in fact, that husband-to-be Kris Humphries was able to include several inscriptions on the inside of the sparkler. “It’s engraved, with two things from the Bible,” Humphries tells PEOPLE. “There’s one verse [Proverbs 31: 10-31] about the perfect godly woman,” he explains. “The other, [1 John 3:18] is about love. It took me … a few days to pick them out and research the perfect ones.” In the middle of the two passages is a third inscription, “K [hearts] K,” standing, of course, for Kris and Kim.

Before proposing, Humphries sought guidance from one of Kardashian’s closest friends, publicist Jonathan Cheban. “I know all her girlfriends but he’s her only guy friend,” the basketball star says. “I wanted to ask him what he thought. A while ago, I called him and told him, ‘I have to do this, I have to propose, I want to do this now!’” But he held out. “I was going to do it on a vacation we took but the timing wasn’t right,” he explains. “[So when] Kim was in Miami doing a QVC thing … Jonathan came to L.A. and we just hung out and talked about [the proposal]. We set some things up.” Not only did Humphries plan the proposal in advance; he picked up the engagement ring early, too. “I got the ring a while ago,” he admits. “I had it for a few weeks.” He must’ve had a good hiding spot!

Smile! Lady Gaga’s Polaroid Collection Debuts

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
From trendsetter to tech nerd! Polaroid creative director Lady Gaga‘s innovations for the brand are finally hitting stores after their splashy unveiling in January. Gaga’s first product under the Grey Label line, the GL10 instant printer, was launched at an event at Bloomingdale’s N.Y.C. flagship store; the $170 device will be sold exclusively at the department store until mid-June, when it will also be available on HSN and at Costco.

Fans can stop by the Lexington Avenue Bloomingdale’s to experiment with the printer, which connects to Bluetooth-enabled phones to produce snapshots straight from your cell — with or without the classic Polaroid border — in less than a minute. Android users can also download a free app to do fun photo edits in seconds!

Said Gaga of her inspiration for the device: “Everyday, digital photos capture, memorialize and shape our lives — but they are not given the chance to inspire us because they die on cell phones or digital cameras.”

Snooki Loses License, Faces Possible Lawsuit After Crash

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The roads of Italy are safe again!

Snooki's driver's license was revoked following her Monday afternoon car crash in Florence, and she might be heading to court, Us Weekly confirms.

The pint-sized Jersey Shore star (real name: Nicole Polizzi) was behind the wheel of a Fiat Multipla with co star Deena in the passenger seat when the fender bender happened. Tests revealed that Snooki, 23, did not have alcohol in her system at the time of the crash.

The incident, which sent two Italian police officers to the hospital for minor injuries, wasn't without consequences. While Snooki is unlikely to face a criminal prosecution, she could be taken to court in a civil action suit by the two police officers injured in the crash. (The officers, ironically, were hired to escort the reality star through the ancient Italian city.)

"It was nothing serious and they have been released, but they will not be back at work for a week," a Florence police spokesman said. Under Italian law, the male and female officer -- who suffered whiplash injuries and cuts and bruises -- have up to 90 days to decide whether to take civil action against Snooki.

As per Italian law, Snooki -- having injured fellow motorists -- automatically lost her license to drive in the country.

Since the Jersey Shore cast arrived in Italy three weeks ago, they've accumulated more than 300 Euro worth of fines for various traffic violations.

RHONY's Ramona Singer Jealous Of Bethenny Frankel

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Jealousy is an ugly color for Real Housewives of New York City's Ramona Singer.

RadarOnline.com has learned that the controversial reality-TV star hatched a plan to follow in the footsteps of former RHONYC star Bethenny Frankel in hopes of becoming as popular and successful as she is -- but it's not working out so well for her.

"Ramona has always been jealous of Bethenny and didn't even want her on the show at first," a source close the situation told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview.

"Ramona is trying to play the sympathy card and came up with a plan to spin her negative press by saying that she is the 'Bethenny' of this season... Ramona is the person who really turned Bethenny against Jill [Zarin] and now it's backfiring on her!"

According to the source, 54-year-old Singer is jealous of Frankel's Skinnygirl brand and hopes to rival it with her new wine label.

"Ramona has gone to the press to say that Bethenny exaggerated about the amount of money she made with the sale of her Skinnygirl brand because she is seething with jealousy over Bethenny's success," the source said.

"Ramona thought that if she got in a fight with Jill she could be the Bethenny of this season and gain a ton of fans like Bethenny did and build her wine to be as successful as Bethenny's Skinnygirl brand."

Who Got A Little Too Comfortable in a Love Scene?

– Actors usually don’t have a problem staying in control during love scenes. Since romance is blocked and rehearsed and shot under the hot lights and in front of a large crew, even the most intimate scenes are usually little more than a carefully choreographed, technical exercise. However, on the set of this one period film, things got a little out of control. During a kissing scene between a handsome, foreign-born actor and a sexy American actress, the actress suddenly stopped and backed away a few paces from her co-star. The actor was left standing there alone. Well, he wasn’t exactly alone. He was accompanied by the incredible bulge in his pants. Filming had to be halted for several minutes while the actor cooled off.

Justin Timberlake Talks About The One & Only, Miss Britney Spears in This Month's Vanity Fair Issue

I wish her the best - that goes without saying. We haven’t spoken in 9 or 10 years.” Justin Timberlake says that most of his and Spears’s relationship was based on circumstance, but had no chance for the long term. “We were two birds of the same feather - small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn’t make any sense. I won’t speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person,” he says. “I just don’t think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers.

It was exciting that we were having so much success and we could do whatever we wanted. And I mean that about everybody: Backstreet Boys, ’NSync, Britney, Christina,” Timberlake says of his early years as a pop idol. “At that time, we could literally go, ‘Oh, man, let’s go to Bali,’ and we’d be on a plane to Bali. We were little kids with big toys. You do the math - that’s not going to last.” Some very big toys, indeed, as Timberlake recalls that on the set of The All-New Mickey Mouse Club, “Ryan [Gosling] and I used to steal golf carts and go driving in the middle of the park to get milk shakes, and we never got in trouble for it. We thought we were big shit.”

Queen Latifah: ”Plus-size’ is a word we need to bury’

As someone who herself has struggled with her weight, Queen Latifah knows exactly how it feels to be labelled plus-size. So for her own fashion collection, which she is launching on the Home Shopping Network later this summer, will have no such definition.

In an interview announcing the launch of her Queen line she explained that she wanted to create something that represented all women. She told WWD: 'I wanted to make something size two and up. 'The truth is, we all would like to wear the same clothes. We all want to wear beautiful, fly clothes no matter what size you are, and so for me it was important to match with a company that understood and respected that ideal.' 

Of the term 'plus-size' she said: 'It is a word we need to bury at this point. It’s for all sizes.' The singer and actress, 41, admitted that the reason she had not agreed to collaborate on a collection in the past was not for lack of opportunity. 'I felt like larger girls were not respected, even though we are huge consumers,' she explained. 'I felt the marketplace didn’t respect us in the way it should. I was not going to step out with a clothing line that didn’t respect a fuller-figured woman or a curvaceous woman, and really all women.'

Indeed the so-called plus-size market, which caters to women of a U.S. size 12 and up, represents 16 per cent of the country's $107.3 billion clothing industry. She named Donna Karan and Marina Rinaldi among her top designers, but even some of her favourite labels, she revealed, did not offer as many sizes as she would like to see available. 'I love Ralph Lauren, just as a designer,' she said. 'I still think he could make some better sizes with his clothes, but I like the idea of his classic American style.'

The Queen collection, which launches on August 27, will be rather more accessibly priced, with all clothing under $100. And designs really do promise a flattering fit for all body shapes (lol... impossible), with softly-draped dresses and waterfall-neck jackets to jeans that unzip at the ankle and versatile knitted ponchos. 

'I want to make clothing that I would wear myself,' she told the trade title. 'If the clothes are good enough for me, I think they are going to be good enough for everyone else.'


i know ONTD is full of plus size larger women..... what r your thoughts? 

Royal newlyweds called 'parasites'

By KEVIN DOUGHERTY, The Gazette June 1, 2011

While calling them "parasites" - because taxpayers are picking up the tab for their Canadian visit - Québec solidaire MNA Amir Khadir says if Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, paid their own way, he would gladly show them around his Plateau Mont Royal neighbourhood.

Like all elected members of the Quebec assembly, Khadir took an oath to Queen Elizabeth II, Canada's head of state.

"The taxpayers should not pay for that," he told reporters, alluding to the impending visit in July of the newlyweds, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. "Do you want your taxes used for a royal couple?"

But since the couple are not paying their way, Khadir said he would participate in a demonstration planned for July 3 in Quebec City if he is in the provincial capital that day.

The militant separatist Réseau de résistance du Québécois, which is organizing the protest, says it wants to make the royal visit "as disagreeable as possible."

International Relations Minister Monique Gagnon-Tremblay would not say how much Quebec taxpayers would ante up for the royal visit, except to say: "We will pay our fair share."

Gagnon-Tremblay called Khadir's statements about the royals "unacceptable and reprehensible," adding: "He is going to be in a violent demonstration."

The RRQ has said it will demonstrate peacefully, but a 1964 visit by Queen Elizabeth to Quebec City turned violent.

Gagnon-Tremblay said RRQ members are "radical independentists" and called their planned demonstration "an appeal to violence."

The Quebec government is receiving a delegation from the German state of Bavaria this week. Khadir said that spending is justified because Quebec and Bavaria have established government relations.

But he said the visit by Prince Willian and his wife is nothing more than a photo opportunity, with the government itself calling the royal couple a tourist attraction.

"I would like the prince and princess (sic) to know that they have been brought here as a circus act," Khadir added.

Khadir said he cannot accept such privilege or birthright "from ancient times."

"We don't need a monarchy," he said. "Every man and woman is equal."

Kardashian Baby Gossip

According to OK! magazine, Kim Kardashian has more than just a wedding to start planning for -- the queen of the Kardashian empire is pregnant! The family fame-making sister who has openly talked about wanting to start her own family for years, is finally doing just that.

Just last week, Kardashian announced that she and New Jersey Nets player, Kris Humphries, were engaged. The raven-haired beauty was reportedly shocked by Humphries' proposal, but how could she turn down a 20.5-carat diamond ring?

But the shockers keep on coming with OK's report that Kardashian is expecting: "Kim always thought she'd have at least one or two kids by now, so she's absolutely in a hurry," an insider tells OK! magazine in their issue out on Thursday. "And Kris loves kids and doesn't see any reason to wait. Her friends are even taking bets on whether it will be a boy or a girl."

From Kardashian's engagement to little sister Kendall's birth control controversy to the whole family's new music video, is it merely a coincidence that the family is taking over the headlines just two weeks shy of the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' season six kick-off? Maybe. Although we are not shocked by the rumors of Kardashian's pregnancy, as with everything in 'K' land, we'll take it with a grain of salt.

Now that Cheryl's done with X Factor she wants a GA reunion

Pop star Cheryl Cole is reportedly focused on a Girls Aloud reunion after she was axed from the US X Factor.

The 27-year-old Promise This singer, who left the talent competition last week after Fox network bosses feared her accent was too strong for US audiences, is said to be focusing on getting the five girls back together for a new album and tour in 2012.

A source told music industry website M Is For Music: 'Everyone knew a Girls Aloud reunion would all depend on Cheryl's work commitments.

'Since cutting all ties with both the US and UK X Factor, Cheryl has been thinking long and hard about her career and has decided to put all her energy into the 2012 reunion. She is focused on getting the girls back together as she knows it would be hard to release another successful solo career without the backing of Simon and the X Factor.'

The insider added: 'Cheryl is devastated about how things have turned out but she thinks a Girls Aloud reunion will help her win back the support of the British public.'

Roseanne Barr and Ken Levine Fight About Roseanne Barr, Ken Levine

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Roseanne Barr's recent article right here in New York, "And I Should Know," continues to draw attention, this time from sitcom writer and blogger Ken Levine (Cheers, M.A.S.H., Frasier). They never worked together, but he writes that she "treated people like shit" and was "endlessly combative"; he says he finds her characterization of male writers "insulting."

Barr, perhaps predictably, fired back. She says he doesn't respect her or her work simply because she's female and that Levine and the commenters on his blog "loathe women." She calls on female writers who've worked with Levine to corroborate her assumptions, but instead, two of Levine's female former co-workers say that he's not sexist at all, and that he was a terrific boss. And Laurie Gelman, the first female writer-producer to work on Roseanne, weighs in, saying that it's Roseanne herself who's sexist. "This is a woman who is definitely threatened by smart, funny women and has to alpha dog all competitors," Gelman writes on Levine's blog. Roseanne's response? That Gelman wasn't funny.

No one wins a fight on the Internet, kids, especially not one about sexism!

So, About This Whole "'Born This Way' Selling One Million Copies" Thing...


By now, we're sure you've all heard the news that pop titan Lady Gaga has sold over one million copies of her new album, Born This Way (or Born To Slay, as we have affectionately renamed it).

We, ourselves, couldn't be happier for her. She has been on her grind for the past month, promoting this record to the highest of Heavens, and her record label haven't let her down - even going to the extent of plastering the entire interior of train carriages with the Gagita's album cover and release date. Not to mention the hard work she's put in over the years on the underground scene and the last couple of years in the spotlight. Without a doubt, she is one of the hardest working women in show business today.

And yet there are many who are bitter about Born To Slay's success.

To be fair, this may be down to the controversial 99c sale of BTW on Amazon, which saw over 300,000 copies of the record being sold via that website alone. Indeed, it is possible to argue the validity of such sales; question whether those who purchased it, would have without the monetary incentive. This, in addition to various other offers, has lead many (and in particular certain stanbases who shall go unnamed) to argue that these sales shouldn't have been counted by Billboard. Some have even said that 'it was against the rules'.

We beg to differ. First off, it isn't against any rules to sell an album for 99c. Indeed, one could even sell a record for 1c if they so wished. Second, that the Amazon sale had nothing to do with Universal or Gaga's people. It was one conducted on the wishes of that website alone and one that has been done in the past with Rihanna's ill-fated Rated R. Third, it was overwhelmingly obvious to anyone with even the most rudimentary knowledge of the industry that Lady Gaga was going to have HUGE first week numbers. Indeed, even without Amazon's sales, BTW would have sold over 700,000 copies.

So, why the outrage?

Candice Crawford: My Wedding Dress Was "a Work of Art"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kate who?

Candice Crawford and Dallas Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo had their own fairy tale wedding on Saturday.

The former beauty queen and current TV personality said "I do" to Jessica Simpson's ex-beau in Dallas, Texas in front of 600 guests. The bride, whose older brother is Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford, wore a custom-made St. Pucchi gown.

The elegant off-white dress featured a Regal Queen Anne Color and signature St. Pucchi beading and embroidery. It "was customized to create a one-of-a-kind dress of Candice's dreams," a St. Pucchi's rep told Us Weekly.

Designer Rani Totman created the bride's dress, using "100% pure silk duchess satin, a textured bodice that showcases hand crafted dimensional cutwork embroidery in a floral pattern accented with delicate ostrich feathers, rhinestone jewels, and crystal beading."

The 24-year-old "knew from the start the exact dress she wanted having kept a photo of her dream gown for many years" and called the finished product "a work of art."

"Working with Candace on her wedding gown was a true pleasure," Totman said. "It was an incredible experience watching the dress come to life on her. Candace has a true eye for styles that accentuate her natural beauty."

Old Hollywood Post: Man Finds New Rare Photos of Hollywood Icons

Talk about a garage sale find - a New Jersey man recently rediscovered an envelope of negatives he bought for $2 in the 1980s, which turned out to be rare pictures of Hollywood icons Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. Anton Fury didn't do anything with them at the time, according to reports, but he found the negatives again earlier this year after a flood at his studio forced him to clean out his belongings. Fury, a photographer, told the New York Daily News that 33 of the images are of Monroe (you can see some of them here), and another 71 are of Mansfield. He took the images to David Streets, a Beverly Hills art dealer and appraiser, who thinks the Monroe images were taken around 1950. "This is before she became the iconic Marilyn Monroe," Streets noted. Monroe would have been 24 in 1950, a big year for the then-still-unknown actress due to her roles in "The Asphalt Jungle" and "All About Eve." According to CNN, she wore two bathing suits (one of them a bikini) and short pants for the poolside shoot. The mystery surrounding the photos - including who took them - is what Streets said drew him in. "The fun part about it is we're all kind of sharing in the beginning stages," Streets told the Daily News. "The adventure is going to be finding out where, who, what, why and when."
Fury reportedly plans to sell the photos at auction.

SOURCE + Mods, I don't think this one has been posted as these photos aren't the LIFE ones from the last Marilyn post. JS. :)

Today would've been Marilyn's 85th birthday.
I've recently seen The Long Hot Summer, The Hustler, and the Shop Around the Corner. Has anyone seen them?
I expect a hot man picspam. Don't disappoint me, ONTD.

Paris Hilton Talks Sex Tape, Mom Cries on 'Piers Morgan Tonight'

Paris Hilton appeared on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' with her mother, Kathy, and got emotional when talking about the infamous XXX-rated tape of her that was released in 2004.

"I just felt so betrayed, this was not some random guy, this was someone I was with for a few years," says Hilton of her ex-boyfriend Rick Soloman, who sold the intimate tape of the heiress.

"Now when people look at me, they think I'm something I'm not, just because of one incident one night, with someone I was in love with," she said.

"I'll have to live with that for the rest of my life and explain it to my children," Hilton continued, while Kathy, sitting next to her, gets visibly upset. "It's something that changed my life forever."

Hilton is currently making the publicity rounds to talk about her new Oxygen reality show, 'The World According to Paris,' which premieres June 1.

Beyonce's Billboard Magazine Scans

"When I left the studio that day, I'll never forget it: I said, 'I just saw the second coming of Michael Jackson.' All of my friends laughed at me--but they don't laugh anymore." - Frank Gatson, choreographer, on Beyonce

Collapse )

"Ladies, our revolution has begun!"
That declaration from Beyonce served as an introduction to an astounding multimedia performance that brought the house down at the May 22 Billboard Music Awards. With mind-blowing graphics, unfurled flags and a legion of female warriors marching to their fierce beats, she launched into "Run The World (Girls)," the first single from her forthcoming album "4". Days later she owned the stage on the American Idol finale, performing her 2003 anthem "Crazy in Love" and debuting a new power ballad, "1 + 1." Just 30 days away from her album's June 28 release, Beyonce is set to do as her first single declares: Run this mutha!

that's all great tbh but

Real Housewives' Ramona Singer: The truth behind my breakdown

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Ramona sits down with Life & Style to address the drinking, her nasty fight with Jill Zarin-- and rumors that her husband is cheating

In an explosive fight in the upcoming June 2 episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, things get so intense with Ramona Singer and estranged friend Jill Zarin that Ramona is left in hysterics in her hotel room. "Jill had a lot of venom coming at me," Ramona divulges to Life & Style in an exclusive interview. "That's what got me so upset." But with speculations of her drinking problem and a cheating husband, news delivered to her by a fortune teller, was it more than Jill that made her snap?

Despite having her own brand of wine, Ramona Pinot Grigio, she fights allegations of being an alcoholic: "I don't drink more or less than anyone else, and I drink responsibly. Was I tipsy in Morocco that first night? Absolutely! You're jet-lagged, so the alcohol hits you a little. But was I slurring my words? No."

And the seer's prediction could drive anyone to drink, but again Ramona balks at the nonsense of her husband cheating. "I'm happily married for 19 years. Do I flirt with other men? Absolutely. Does my husband enjoy looking at another woman who's gorgeous? Absolutely. He's a male -- he'd better. It means his testosterone is still working!"

‘Mob Wives’ Karen Gravano V. Drita D’avanzo: They Will Never Be Friends Again After Brutal Battle

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The trust between Mob Wives co-stars and former friends Karen Gravano and Drita D’avanzo has permanently been severed! On the May 29 episode, Karen broke down into tears at Renee Graziano‘s house over the fact that Drita didn’t tell Karen herself that she married Karen’s ex-boyfriend Lee D’avanzo. Drita, seeing Karen in pain, quickly said I’m sorry. But the reality today is that neither woman has truly forgiven the other and that their friendship is beyond repair.

“For me, it was not about Lee,” Karen tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “I could have licked it in the butt and walked past it quick. We could have been friends and it wouldn’t have been drawn out if she said sorry and said it sincerely without hitting me with timelines and excuses and reasons for why she did what she did. But she kept missing the point — she kept thinking I was getting at him.”

Karen feels that Drita didn’t mean what she said at Renee’s house. “The bottom line is, Drita was my friend,” says Karen. “For a friend to be able to put some things in the past, you have to close the doors and be able to build on trust. So if she couldn’t apologize to me and she’s going to keep making excuses, I can’t trust her.”

Amy Adams: You In Danger, Girl.

Amy Adams Joins Paul Thomas Anderson's Untitled Scientology Movie
Amy Adams has formally been set to star in Paul Thomas Anderson's untitled film, which begins production later this month. She will play the wife of the character played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. He plays a man who returns from witnessing the horrors of WWII, and in an attempt to find himself, he forms a belief system that catches on in the 1950s (aka Scientology). Deadline revealed in early May that Adams was being courted. Joaquin Phoenix has also been set to play the faith leader's right-hand man, and I've heard there have been conversations with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo's Lena Endre and Laura Dern for other roles. The Weinstein Company acquired worldwide distribution rights to the film last month just before the Cannes Film Festival. Megan Ellison is producing through her Annapurna Productions banner, along with JoAnne Sellar and Daniel Lupi, with Ted Schipper exec producing.

Adams is coming off her Oscar-nominated turn in The Fighter, and she will do this film before starting production on Man of Steel, playing Lois Lane in the Zack Snyder-directed Superman franchise reboot. Adams will next be seen in the Walter Salles-directed On The Road, which is being shopped for domestic distribution, and Disney's Muppets. She's repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners and WME.

New candids of ONTD's favorite couple

They’re one of Young Hollywood’s hottest couples, and things seem to be getting more serious for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.

The “Baby” singer and his “Wizards of Waverly Place” woman were spotted in Justin’s homeland of Toronto, Canada earlier today (June 1).
Justin proudly introduced Selena to his father and siblings during an outing to a park, and according to onlookers, they looked to be getting along quite well.

"The little kids took to Selena straight away and they were all laughing and joking around. They couldn't have been happier," said a source.

Earlier in the week, Selena and Justin were seen with Selena’s family at Pappasito’s Cantina in Arlington, Texas.

Their server told press, “Justin and Selena were with a group of about 18 people at Pappasito’s Sunday night. It was a family outing. Selena’s mom and step-dad were there, along with her cousins and friends — and Justin’s manager, who paid the bill. Everyone seemed to be having a great time.”

Most child actors struggle during that awkward transition from boyz II men; but for 21-year-old Brit Nicholas Hoult, it hasn't been that hard to say goodbye to yesterday -- from his breakthrough role in "About a Boy" to "X-Men" (see what we did there?).

In fact, his future's so bright, he's gotta wear shades… of blue, as the ferocious furry Beast in "X-Men: First Class." The new mutant pseudo-prequel features Hoult as Dr. Henry "Hank" McCoy, a prodigious young scientist with a bit of a Jekyll/Hyde thing going on.

Rihanna's 'Murder' Video Draws Fire

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The Parents Television Council is blasting Rihanna for hawking a "cold, calculated execution of murder" in her brand new music video for "Man Down."

The council is outraged that Rihanna would suggest that gunning down a rapist in a crowded train station is a proper form of justice.

The council says, "If Chris Brown shot a woman in his new video and BET premiered it, the world would stop. Rihanna should not get a pass ..."

The council is all the more outraged that Rihanna tweeted her fans that the video contained, "a very strong underlying message 4 girls like me."

The council's venom is also directed at BET for airing the video -- so we gotta ask ...

Whose side are you on: Rihanna or PTC?


San Francisco Giants: It Gets Better

The San Francisco Giants posted its ''It's Get Better'' video on YouTube this morning, becoming the first professional sports team to join the online campaign against gay bullying and homophobia. The video can be viewed at sfgiants.com and at itgetsbetter.org/sfgiants.

Five Giants appear in the 58-second video -- pitchers Matt Cain, Barry Zito and Sergio Romo, centerfielder Andres Torres, and batting coach Hensley ''Bam Bam'' Meulens.

Dressed in their uniform with the ballpark in the backdrop, the world champions look directly into the camera to make their pitch.

''We all know how difficult life can be as a teenager,'' Zito starts out. '' We've all been there and had to deal with the pressure to fit in and be accepted by our peers.'' Romo adds. ''It's particularly challenging for LGBT teens who face adversity and intolerance in their daily lives,'' Cain says.

They say there's no place for hatred or bullying in our society and plead with people to not give up hope in despair. The video ends with the come-away message, spoken by the players and coach in English, Spanish and Japanese: ''It gets better.''

The Giants announced last month that they would participate in the burgeoning ''It Gets Better'' campaign after lifelong Giants fan Sean Chapin began an online petition drive urging the team on. Giants officials said that while they already had been planning to make a video, Chapin's lobbying speeded up production.

Here's the video


International poster for "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"

"Evil will be hunted by evil."

That's the basic translation of the tagline on this French poster for Columbia's adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It's a little strong, since the main characters are pretty sympathetic (the villains are certainly deserving). But the look and feel of the image are dead on what the recently stolen trailer (now pulled down) describes as "the feel bad movie of Christmas."

Daniel Craig is glaring grimly while taking an appropriately protective/hostile stance toward Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander. She, of course, is naked in the shot, indicating both her fluid, aggressive sexuality and her ultimate strength and self-reliance even when most vulnerable.

Eric Mabius Slams ABC Over 'Ugly Betty' End For Gay Friendly Plots

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Eric Mabius has criticized ABC for its treatment of his show Ugly Betty.

Ugly Betty was canceled last year after four seasons.

Mabius has now claimed that it was partly dropped because an executive "who was running the network at the time but is no longer at the company" was unhappy with the positive portrayal of gay people in the show.

He explained that the executive was particularly unimpressed with the storyline about Justin's sexuality and the character of Marc (Michael Urie).

Mabius told Zap2It: "I don't know why we were thrown on the sacrificial altar so often, with our nights getting changed and our fans getting so upset.

"I think there was a little bit too much alternative-lifestyle humor for a certain executive, but despite having no support from certain people, the fans really made a difference. The universality of the topic and the nature of what was portrayed on the show were reflective of how we felt about each other as human beings."

Mabius, who described the end of Ugly Betty as "upsetting in many ways", continued: "I'm pretty sure that the first teenage romantic kiss between two boys on network television was on our show, but did you hear anything about it? Was it promoted?

From 'Harry Potter' to 'Twilight,' the Enduring Draw of Young Adult Fiction

In a world of niche marketing, mass entertainment phenomena are rarer and rarer. But in the last decade, fans of all ages have flocked repeatedly to series aimed at young adults. Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy may be popular, but Lisbeth Salander can't hold a candle to Harry Potter: The traumatized Scandanavian hacker's sold 27 million novels to the British boy wizard's 400 million. Bella Swan, the moody teen who takes up with a vampire, has propelled Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series to 116 million book sales. Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy hasn't quite broken into that upper echelon, but the movie adaptation has attracted such buzz that it's finally propelled forward a long-stalled film version of Orson Scott Card's 1985 YA science-fiction classic Ender's Game. Marie Lu's novel Legend hasn't even been published yet, but the producers behind the Twilight movie adaptations are already shepherding it towards the big screen.

“I stay down to earth because i know it could all be over like *snap*. You have to constantly fight for what you want.”

How has all of this “drama” played out in your personal life?
“My friends and family love me for who I am. If I were to change, it might have pushed some away.”

Michael Jackson lived with Kathy Hilton before his death, was a great dad, not a drug addict, etc.

 (Watch the full 8 minute video here -- sorry, it won't embed)

Last night on Piers Morgan's show, Kathy Hilton and her famous daughter, Paris Hilton, spoke at length about their long friendship with the Jackson family -- Michael Jackson in particular.

Hilton (who attended private school with many of the Jacksons) revealed that she'd met Michael when they were both around 14 years old, and that the pair "developed a friendship and a bond throughout the years," making sure to always stay in touch.

Indeed they did. Whenever he was in town, the shy singer would pop by to reminisce about the good ol' days over dinner. The Hiltons were even invited to the set of Jackson's infamous "Thriller" music video (they have the photos to prove it, Paris assured), and to many of his concerts throughout the years (little Paris and Nicki would sometimes join Michael on stage for a song or two).

At one point, Kathy and Michael even lived together!

In a Bentley, Trying to Catch the Spotlight Again

In the four years since Paris Hilton’s first reality show was canceled, an African-American president has been elected, financial markets have teetered on the edge of collapse, bioengineers have created a synthetic, self-replicating cell and civil uprisings have swept throughout the Arab world.

Ms. Hilton hasn’t changed a thing, not even the length or shade of her bleached-blond hair.

“The World According to Paris,” which begins on Wednesday night on Oxygen, is accordingly a small one.

The camera follows her as she drives around Los Angeles in a custom Barbie-pink Bentley convertible. She shops. She goes dancing in nightclubs with her girlfriends, who for this series at least include Brooke Mueller, an ex-wife of Charlie Sheen. She visits her mother, Kathy Hilton. She takes her assistant with her to do court-mandated community service, painting over graffiti while wearing Louboutin heels.

In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, Bobbi Kristina writes, "Mom getting a twitter I'm just saying, Not happening. Lol (laugh out loud). She likes her privacy & hardly knows how to work a phone. Old school!

"But what I can do is give her your love & tweet off of mine 4 her... that ok? It's just that she doesn't want one, & I believe that's best!"

Ryan Phillippe and Amanda Seyfried have ended their relationship again.
The couple - who briefly split in February - are said to have mutually agreed to call time on their seven-month romance but plan to stay friends.
A source said: "It was mutual. They were never fully committed.
"There's no bad blood. They're cool."
According to friends, 36-year-old Ryan - whose former lover Alexis Knapp is due to give birth to what she claims is his baby later this month - and Amanda, 25, were never serious about their relationship and continued to date other people.
The source added to Us Weekly magazine: "They were always on and off. They were always seeing other people."
News of the split comes weeks after Amanda spoke of her desire to have children.
She said: "I want children! My publicist now has two kids - I love her, so I like to think I'm an auntie to her kids. I can't wait to have my own! I think it's really exciting to know that I want them. Knock on wood, I hope I'm fertile, but I've never got pregnant before."

Now a word from Gwyneth's dear friend, [info]luvthatdrtywata:

I so admire Gwynnie's ability to reach out to the common folk via this social networking medium. Her desire to truly impact the lives of so many poor, poor upper middle-class citizens is not only honorable but it shows the truly compassionate and empathetic person I know her to be.

I remember the moment Gwynnie decided to join Twitter. We were at a pre-Fashion Week 5K hosted by Kate Spade and Kay Unger in honor of Kofi Annan, called the KKK Rally. After we saw our assistants off on the run, we were joined in the VIP tent by a young man by the name of "Biz." Obviously, I thought he was the event's drug dealer so I handed him a $100 (the smallest bill I had) and asked for a gram. Unfortunately, he informed me he was not a drug deal but a budding entrepreneur with an online business. Gwynnie and I shared a look, remembering the dot-com bubble. I tried to shoo him but Gwynnie, always the hostess asked him to sit to discuss his venture. I left to go take a bump and drop a deuce and when I returned Gwynnie insisted upon telling me all about this new "Twitter" rage. I gently told her that now was not the time and we needed to get to the dance floor before she ruined my buzz. And that rest, as they say, was history!"

Nude Model Blake Lively is Sick of Herself (Insert Obvious Joke Here)

"People ask me why I don't tweet," the July cover girl told Glamour magazine. "Honestly, I'm so sick of myself."

Blake talks to Florence Welch about becoming the new face of Chanel's Mademoiselle handbag:
"It's such an honor. When I found out I got [the job], you and I went to dinner and concocted this plan, like two little girls at a tea party, saying, 'Oh, it would be the best if we had a party. And you'll perform, and we'll do it in Paris.' Like you and I were in charge of Chanel!"

Blake Lively on being her own stylist:
"I think I became my own stylist by not knowing any better. And once I was told it was time to get one, I thought: This is one of my favorite hobbies! And I'm going to pay someone to steal my hobby from me? That's a terrible idea!"

Blake on getting ready for an event:
"I like it to be easy. I don't feel like I have to do so much with hair and makeup, because I'm the mannequin for these beautiful clothes, so I never want to do anything too distracting. Most of the time, I put my hair in a ballerina bun, and I take it down and it's wavy, and then I leave. I feel shy when people are fussing on me. And my diet of choice before events is a chicken potpie from Tea & Sympathy, because they never have enough food at these things."

Are Justin Timberlake And Ashley Olsen Hooking Up?

"SexyBack" meets Full House!

The new Us Weekly, out Wednesday, reports that Justin Timberlake and Ashley Olsen -- both newly single, former child stars with their own fashion labels -- have been inseparable (and flirty!) in and around NYC of late.

One insider close to the pair (spotted together at the Greenwich Hotel, an SNL afterparty, two Broadway shows and a polo match outside the city) tells Us: "They are hooking up."

Adds another source of the unexpected twosome, who both ended high-profile relationships in March (he with Jessica Biel after 4 years together, she with actor Justin Bartha after two years): "They're really trying to keep it on the down-low."

(A rep for Timberlake denies anything non-platonic, telling Us: "They are friends. They are not romantically involved.")

Still, an Olsen source says that the former sitcom kid turned fashion mogul is "aware of Justin's reputation with women, but...They're in the same head space."

Lloyd Covers "Tears Of A Clown"

Lloyd takes it back with his piano-driven cover of Smokey Robinson & the Miracles’ “The Tears of a Clown.” Sammy Davis Jr. Jr. wails over the 1970 Motown classic in anticipation of the release of his own album King of Hearts, featuring appearances from Chris Brown, Keri Hilson, and André 3000.


Not sure how to feel about this, I like Lloyd alot but Smokey is one of my favs and so is this song....I don't think he pulled it off too well

Taylor Lautner reportedly dropped by publicist over dad issue

Baum reportedly let go of Lautner after just three months of working together.


Cheryl Cole not the only sour note for Cowell's "X Factor".

 "American Idol" made Simon Cowell a household name in the United States, but the prickly British music Svengali is hitting some flat notes as he tries to launch his own TV singing competition.

Cowell, 51, has been working on a U.S. version of his hit UK talent show "The X Factor" for more than 18 months. But as the clock winds down to its much-hyped debut in the fall, he is facing some last-minute challenges.

His personal pick for the judging panel -- British singer Cheryl Cole -- was reportedly dumped from the lineup, possibly because of her thick accent. She was also dropped this week from the panel of the UK version of "The X Factor".

Nick Offerman’s beard saves the planet

 Nick Offerman isn't shaving for the environment's sake. Join him.

title or description

What’s the best email subject line we’ve read today? “Nick Offerman’s beard saves the planet.” The Parks and Recreation star, a.k.a. Ron Swanson, has teamed up with Budweiser to promote its “Grow One. Save a Million” campaign, which encourages men to grow beards as awesome as his — and therefore conserve water — in advance of World Environment Day (this Sunday, June 5). According to Budweiser, on average, a man uses 5 gallons of water every time he shaves. The company hopes enough men will take the pledge to put down the razor to save one million gallons of water.
“The only thing manlier than growing a big, burly beard is ripping a big, burly beard off of a charging grizzly with your bare hands,” Swanson Offerman says in a release. “That, and saving the planet. Since no grizzly has had the balls to charge me since I went through puberty, I’ve decided to focus on saving the planet by joining with Budweiser to promote the ‘Grow One. Save a Million’ campaign. Men, if you want to look manly and feel good about conserving water, join me and take the pledge on Budweiser’s Facebook page. And grizzlies, charge me. Just do it. I’m waiting, you babies.”

P.S. The accompanying photo is of Offerman and Chad Pregracke, founder of Living Lands & Waters, standing in front of a hand-made canoe built by Offerman.

P.P.S. Ron Swanson without facial hair was voted the sixth Most Disturbing Image in our TV Season Finale Awards.

Kitty and Russell want to work together!

Lovebirds Katy Perry and comedian Russell Brand could be working together on a new big screen project.

It's rumored the pair - who wed late last year - could be starring as a married couple in an up-and-coming new movie, set to premiere next year.

One film insider revealed: "This is a project Russell has had lined up for a while but the right female co-star has yet to be found.

"Katy was suggested before but nothing came of it but now she’s keen to give it a go."

The source added: "She wants to break into movies and the chance to spend time with Russell and dispel all these rumors might be too good to turn down."

Recently the Firework singer said she wants to play Mary Poppins in a remake of the movie

Full Verona short now online

Inspired by William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Verona is the story of two young lovers separated by their rival fraternities. Set in a small college town wherein young men are groomed for corporate success in All-American hyper competitive fashion, Verona presents the fate of star-crossed lovers in a society that condemns the very nature of their love.

VERONA (The Short) was produced and shot in the Fall of 2009 with the intentions of securing distribution and financing for the full-length feature.

This backward approach draws its strength from attracting like-minded individuals wanting to see the picture and story come to life.
