Julianna Margulies Sued by Former Managers Over Commissions

The suit says the managers got her on "Good Wife" and made her deal with L’Oreal but after she fired them, the actress stopped paying commissions, which amount to at least $420,000.

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are allegedly expecting their second child

Penelope Cruz is reportedly pregnant.

The 38-year-old actress - who has 17-month-old son Leonardo with husband Javier Bardem - is believed to be expecting her second child with the actor, Spanish TV programme Espejo Publico (Antena3) is reporting.

They claim a source close to the couple, as well as an insider who has been working with the actress in Madrid, have confirmed the brunette beauty is three months pregnant.

Penelope recently admitted she is having the time of her life being a housewife and staying at home to look after Leonardo, describing it as the 'best thing in the world'.

She said: 'I'm a housewife and it's beautiful, the best thing in the world. I know how to cook and it's important to me to make fresh food every day. I don't do crazy diets, just the good Mediterranean food that I love because it's important to eat well.'

Penelope also recently admitted she 'worries less' since becoming a mother as beforehand she 'always loved' to be concerned about everything in her life.

She explained: 'For me, having my son means I worry less. I've always loved to worry - ever since I was a little girl people would tell me I worry too much. But these days I really have to pick my subjects to worry about because there are only so many hours in the day.'


Six skeletons found in missing Bollywood starlet's home near Mumbai

six x

Mumbai police now believe that the murders of Bollywood starlet Laila Khan and her five family members were pre-meditated. Police have recovered remains of six people, believed to be that of Khan and her family members.
The mystery of the missing Bollywood starlet Laila Khan and her family was resolved Wednesday with police announcing the discovery of six skeletons and arresting her stepfather for the murders.

Although Parvez Tak had confessed to killing the actor and her five family members in a fit of rage, Mumbai Police said the murders could have been pre-planned.

Making a breakthrough in the case that had baffled everyone for months, the Crime Branch recovered the skeletons from Laila Khan's farmhouse in Igatpuri near Nashik, around 130 km (80 miles) from Mumbai.

Preliminary forensic reports reveal that five of the skeletons were of women and one of a man. Pieces of jewelry, synthetic clothing and underclothing were found on the skeletons.

According to police, Tak, the third husband of Laila Khan's mother Selina, said he first killed her (Selina) in a fit of rage. Laila and her siblings witnessed Selina's murder and so he killed them too, said police.

"Parvez Tak said he had a heated argument with Selina and killed her. Laila and her siblings were on the first floor and came down after hearing loud voices. He then killed them with the help of a watchmen (security guard), Shakir," Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Himanshu Roy told reporters.

Roy said police were not ruling out the possibility of the murders having being premeditated.

Chris Brown’s takes No. 1 on Billboard 200 as Katy Perry rebounds

Chris Brown deep throating(doing what he does best)

Chris Brown has earned two No. 1 albums on The Billboard 200 in as many years, with “Fortune” starting up top with 134,000 copies. That’s less than half of what his “F.A.M.E” sold in its first week, which was 270,000.
As the magazine points out, Usher had a similar dip between years, as his recent top-charter “Looking 4 Myself” didn’t hold a candle to his “Raymond v Raymond” drop, a difference of 128,000 v 329,000.

Grant Gustin Confirms Finnick Audition

So it's buried in this story on TheInsider.com about his Lifetime movie, A Mother's Nightmare, but Grant Gustin confirmed he's actually auditioned to play Finnick in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

But Grant's fans have plenty of projects to look forward to -- not only will A Mother's Nightmare premiere later this year on Lifetime, but the actor reveals he has officially thrown his hat into the ring to play Finnick in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire! "I have auditioned for the role," he says, confirming lots of fan desire/speculation. "I don't think [the producers] know what they're looking for just yet, but yes, I auditioned for the role."

He also says that Sebastian might not be back on Glee next season because Ryan Murphy has plans to add even more characters to the already over-inflated show.

Which isn't to say he's opposed to feeling the Glee again next season! "I love doing that show, the fans are great and I'd love to do more," he told ET Canada before adding that the show simply might not have room for his character any longer. "They're doing another season of The Glee Project so they'll be adding another character there and I won't give anything away, but they're bringing in some other new characters as well."

Tulisa wins High Court Case ‎about her sex tape

Tulisa, 23, launched the legal action against her 28-year-old ex-boyfriend and others after the footage was posted on a website. She won a High Court order in March banning publication of the clip showing her engaged in a sexual act.

Tulisa's ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards has finally admitted to leaking the infamous footage of the singer performing a sex act on him back in March. According to The Sun, his barrister - Jacob Dean - told Mr Justice Tugendhat: "Mr Edwards has admitted responsibility for publication of the video, apologised for it, and promised not to do it again.”

Outside court, Miss Contostavlos, dressed in black hot pants, a pale peach jacket and a floral top, spoke to reporters. "I am relieved that this is finally over," she said. "It has been a very testing few months and this was not a case I ever wanted to go through.

"I stand here today a stronger, wiser young woman who has taken this experience and learnt from it. I am disgusted by Justin and saddened by the people that believed I released the footage myself."

The reason why Frank Ocean's 'Channel Orange' Won't Be Sold at Target

Plus hear the Tyler, the Creator-assisted bonus track Target customers won't get on their physical copy

Whether Frank Ocean's expedited digital release of channel ORANGE will perform well on the charts next week is more or less a no-brainer at this point, however there are still controversies surrounding its arrival. Comments Ocean's manager Christian Clancy made on Twitter yesterday kicked speculation into high gear when he accused Target of declining to carry the physical record not only because of its surprise iTunes digital pre-release (which, as Billboard reports, was planned from the beginning) but also because of its sticky history with anti-LGBT rights campaigns.

"Target has refused to carry Frank's album because of iTunes exclusive," Clancy wrote in a since-deleted tweet. "Interesting since they also donate to non-equal rights organizations." That last bit, of course, refers to Ocean's recent coming-out of sorts on Tumblr just days before he dropped ORANGE and gave his breathtaking Monday night performance on Fallon. Target, which did carry out singer Adam Lambert's recent landmark No. 1 album, issued a statement last night in response to the rumors:

Trailer for Jack White's "Freedom at 21" Music Video

Jack White has posted the teaser for his new Hype Williams directed video 'Freedom At 21'.

Jack White loves vinyl. The guitarist releases all of his material on wax, with a recent run of seven inches boasting a vinyl only flipside.

Quickly selling out, those tracks became extremely scarce. As a result, earlier this week each of those B-sides - 'Machine Gun Silhouette', 'Love Is Blindness' and 'Inaccessible Mystery' - were released digitally.

As if that wasn't enough to keep him busy, Jack White has also been working with Hype Williams. A legendary director, Williams is responsible for such seminal music videos as Missy Elliot's 'The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)' and Kanye West's 'Gold Digger'.

Working with 'Freedom At 21' a tasty new teaser has been placed online. Only 34 seconds long, the clip is unmistakeably Hype Williams - from the colours to the camera angles to the editing this is steeped in his courageous eye.

The full clip for 'Freedom At 21' hits the web on Monday (July 16th)


looks weird and kind of creepy, but intriguing. So pretty much typical Jack White tbh.

Robert Blake unleashes during Piers Morgan interview
By Chelsea J. Carter

Actor Robert Blake accused CNN's Piers Morgan of calling him a liar in a combative, profanity-laced interview that was more remarkable for its tone than revelations surrounding his acquittal in the 2001 murder of his wife.

Blake, 78, said he agreed to appear on the show Wednesday to promote his self-published memoir "Tales Of A Rascal," telling Morgan that the book was not about his late wife, Bonnie Lee Bakley, or their relationship.

OP Comment:

Jennifer Lopez on American Idol: 'It's Time for Me to Go'

Apparently all the buzz about fresh faces on the American Idol judges' panel is not premature.

Jennifer Lopez, who's been on the show for two seasons, appeared on Thursday's Today show and said that when it comes to doing a third season, "I am thinking that it's time for me to go."

But leaving the Fox show, which crowned Phillip Phillips the season 11 winner in May, won't be easy for Lopez, who, besides being mom to 4-year-old twins Max and Emme, is currently on tour with Enrique Iglesias and stars in the new animated movie Ice Age 3: Continental Drift.

"I've loved it so much. I've enjoyed the show so much. I enjoy just the whole process of the show ... It's a tough decision either way, but I have to say there are so many things I do that I put on hold for that," Lopez, 42, said. "It's a heartbreaking decision if I have to go."

But, it seems, there's still an "if."

When Today's Natalie Morales asked if she's made up her mind, Lopez said, "Little by little I am ... All I can let you in on is my own thought process with it because that's where I truly am ... I love everybody, I love all the guys on the show, I love the family that's there ... but I am thinking it's time for me to go and do other things I love to do."

OMG is that Janis Ian?

Lizzy Caplan stars in the upcoming Save the Date and Masters of Sex, and tells Krista Smith how she got her start.

PROVENANCE: Los Angeles, California.

AGE: 30.

EARLY START: The lifelong Angeleno, who got into acting as a teenager, was accepted at N.Y.U. but decided against attending. However, she got a taste of collegiate camaraderie during the filming of Mean Girls. “It was interesting because that movie was as close to a college experience as I got.”

THE LAUGH PACK: Caplan debuted on cult favorite Freaks and Geeks, the launchpad for a generation of impressive comedic talent, including Busy Philipps, Seth Rogen, James Franco, and Jason Segel. The humor between takes has always been part of the experience for her as well. “I almost feel like it’s odd how fortunate I’ve been in terms of fun on set.”

LEADING LADY: After TV stints playing a lawyer on New Girl and a comedian-actress-caterer on Party Down, she has a new show, Masters of Sex, premiering in 2013. She isn't neglecting the big screen either. In addition to the gleefully debauched Bachelorette, Caplan has another bridal-themed movie, Save the Date, both due out later this year. And she’s aware of a change in the movie industry: “I mean, look at Kat Dennings and Aubrey Plaza, and these girls are not the best friends anymore; they get to be the girl. And I think I’ve definitely benefited from that wave, too.”

Stevie Nicks on CBS, confirms band reunion, Gayle is rude, etc

Singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks, best known for her work as lead singer of Fleetwood Mac, says the group is reuniting in 2013.

Wednesday on "CBS This Morning," Nicks said a reunion will happen "next year, so far." She added, "...It's the plan. Because that's what we do. I do my thing. And Lindsey (Buckingham is) out doing his thing now."

Nicks also discussed life in the limelight in the early days of Fleetwood Mac, the band's drug use, how she began her solo career and her relationship with her fellow band mates.


Gayle kind of cut her off a lot and was pretty ballsy asking about cross-pollination and boinking.... but otherwise, this was a great interview.

Tom Cruise Didn't Settle Divorce To Hide 'Secrets'

Tom Cruise did NOT settle his divorce with Katie Holmes because he feared she might spill secrets about the actor -- this according to Tom's lawyer.

Attorney Bert Fields scoffs at reports claiming Tom was fearful of what Katie might reveal, telling TMZ, "Tom had nothing to hide and did nothing in the agreement to hide anything.  People are just making this stuff up."

As for the child custody arrangement, it appears Tom will indeed have the "significant" contact with Suri that we reported about last week.  Fields said, "Tom will definitely have a meaningful relationship with his daughter, but I can't talk about specifics of the agreement."

Fields said Tom's primary concern in the settlement was Suri and added Tom was "pleased we could work out how Suri will be treated and dealt with."

And, on the subject of Katie Holmes, Fields said, "I don't think Tom is bitter.  He's sad it came to this," adding, "The media firestorm which is replete with bogus information is unpleasant for him."

Producer Jazze Pha: I Made Ciara; She Needs Me!

Is this sexist? 

Hip Hollywood recently caught up with Jazze Pha at the BET Awards and he had some choice words about where Ciara’s career stands. In 2004, the Atlanta-based producer helped launch Ciara’s music career, and made her a household name. But in 2006 Ciara decided to switch it up — and the pair haven’t worked together since.

In recent years CiCi’s albums have underperformed, and a little help from an old friend may not necessarily be a bad thing. Check out the clip below!

Beautiful Person Post: Superman Man Of Steel Trailer Incoming. Also, How Cavill Became Superman

With rumours now rife that a teaser trailer for The Man of Steel will appear along with prints of The Dark Knight Rises this week, director Zack Snyder has confirmed that they will show some footage at this weekend's Comic Con in San Diego. More interestingly, while speaking to Dotted Line, he chatted about lead Henry Cavill's casting...

"We had about 500 guys initially. We did this massive auditioning madness. It got down to the usual suspects in a pretty quick order. Henry Cavill was actually the first one we physically tested on film. We actually tested him in the Christopher Reeves Superman suit. And that was a big deal. That’s a hard suit to pull off. Trust me. If you’re just standing there in that suit, it’s dodgy. It felt like we just bought it a costume shop. Plus, there’s no mask. I’ve been around a few superhero costumes, and it’s weird because when you’re in the Superman costume it’s just you from the neck up. And somebody just combed your hair. But Henry came out of the trailer when we were shooting a test and everybody thought, ‘Okay, that’s Superman.’ He was awesome and did a great job."

We'll get to see Cavill in the trailer (which apparently runs at a slight 87 seconds long) very soon. We'll also have word from Comic Con about how footage is going down.

Someone on Tumblr posted some pictures of his Superman suit in its Comic-Con display.

Praying for the trailer to be shown before TDKR. It's been a lifelong dream to see that bulge in IMAX.


Ryan Lochte Outdoes Michael Phelps With His Own Shirtless Magazine Cover

Ryan Lochte shows off his flawless shirtless physique on the August 2012 cover of Men’s Journal, on newsstands July 13.

Here’s what the 27-year-old Olympic swimmer had to share with the mag:

On wearing his famous mouth grill: “I don’t show them off during the ceremony, anything like that, but it’s, like, my personality coming out there. That’s what the sport needs. If we want to make the sport bigger than it is now, we have to start showing our personalities.”

On swimming not dictating his existence: “Swimming doesn’t define who I am. I’m not going to give up anything for it. I’m still going to be exactly who I am and have fun with life. There’s a lot of swimmers out there who make swimming their life, but for me, it’s just a sport that I do.”

On the upcoming London Olympics: “I could get one medal or 20, and I’ll be happy.”

Crazy Bitch Report: One Million Moms Targets Cedric The Entertainer Sitcom

One of TV Land's newest sitcoms, "The Soul Man," blasphemes the name of Jesus Christ and mocks pastors. The mockery is similar to "Good Christian Belles" also known as "GCB." The program focuses on one family but is far from family-friendly programming. The show is described as: R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce "The Voice" Ballentine (Cedric The Entertainer) was living the high life in Las Vegas at the top of the music charts when he got "the calling" and decided to relocate to St. Louis with his family to become a preacher in his father's church. However, his wife and daughter are not exactly eager to give up the fabulous superstar life for their new humble one. "The Soul Man" airs on Wednesdays at 10/9c.

Networks like TV Land (owned by Viacom) continue to mock Christianity. This program includes the pastor getting drunk, inappropriate language, and the portrayal of Christians in a negative light. Each episode is full of sexual innuendos; too many to list here.


Please send an email letter strongly encouraging sponsors to drop all plans of financially supporting the anti-Christian TV Land program "The Soul Man."

The sponsors of "The Soul Man" include: M & M's (Mars, Inc.), Red Lobster, Dairy Queen, Big Lots, Inc., and Geico.

Oh US Olympic Committee You FAIL Again

London 2012: US Ralph Lauren uniform made in China Cause Outrage

US athletes at the forthcoming London Olympics will wear stylish uniforms designed in the US - but made in China.

The news prompted a rare outbreak of bipartisan agreement, with Republican and Democratic leaders highly critical of the US Olympic Committee.

"I think the Olympic committee should be ashamed of themselves," Senate majority leader Harry Reid said.

The outfits - which cost close to $2,000 (£1,300) - were designed by US label Ralph Lauren.

The classic navy blue blazers, white trousers and skirts, and red-accented ties and berets may have a distinctly American look, but the label inside reads "Made in China", ABC News revealed.

Curious 'American Horror Story' Season 2 Spoiler...

Ashley Rickards, who played dead cheerleader Chloe in the first season of American Horror Story, revealed in an interview a very bizarre piece of season two information. Check it out:

Insider.com: What are the chances we'll see you back on American Horror Story in season two?
Ashley: Um … well, before I say anything, I should tell you that I know what's going to happen next season. I know the twist. Somebody told me in a meeting trying to impress me and looking at what's going to happen, it's a freaking brilliant twist that I don't think anyone on the planet could understand. I could talk to you about exactly why and how my character could come back in detail and you'd still have no idea what the twist is. So there's a way that my character could come back for sure – I mean, they don't need me, but I think they need me. I think a dead cheerleader walking around is crucial to any film-making process. But at this moment, there is no concrete plan.

This should strike any fan as an odd statement because season two takes place in an insane asylum circa 1960 and doesn't involve any of the same characters -- so perhaps a "season one was all in a crazy person's head" twist is coming our way?

Cat Cora looks picture-perfect in DUI mug shot

The 44-year-old appears perfectly groomed and composed in the shot, with her golden blonde locks looking sleek.

She can be seen sporting natural looking make-up topped off with a generous slick of sparkly pink lip gloss.

However there is a good reason why Cat appears so well-styled in the mug shot, according to People Magazine.

A snap was not taken at the time of her June 17 arrest, therefore she was given until her July 26 arraignment date to return to the Santa Barbara police station and have her photo done.

The former Iron Chef host went back to the scene of the crime yesterday to have the mug shot taken.

Cat was booked for a DUI following a breathalyser test after she rear-ended her vehicle.

The food fanatic was found to have twice the legal limit of alcohol in her bloodstream and was promptly arrested.

link from yesterday

I don't know how she managed to put off her mug shot til a month after the arrest, but Santa Barbara does cater to his celebrities. Yay, California.

Also, this makes TMZ's claim that news of her DUI was missed, and just 'found by a chance read'thru of the blotter' is a big lie, too. I'm guessing they tried to get ahead of it due to her taking the pic yesterday.

Steven Tyler won't return to 'Idol'

Whoa. We didn't see this one coming.

Fox has announced that Steven Tyler has decided not to return to AmericanIdol's judging panel. Tyler served as a judge during the 10th and 11th seasons of the talent competition show.

Here's Tyler's statement:

"After some long...hard...thoughts…I've decided it's time for me to let go of my mistress 'American Idol' before she boils my rabbit.

Video Premiere: Wynter Gordon's 'Stimela'

You might not know it yet, but you've probably already heard Wynter Gordon. She is the singer of bouncy club hit "Dirty Talk," has previously collaborated with Major Lazer and Flo Rida, and has written lyrics for the likes of J. Lo, Mary J. Blige, and Estelle. However, Gordon's newest single "Stimela," from her self-released four-part project titled The Human Condition, finds a very different incarnation of the singer than the one most often heard blasting in clubs or on the radio.

Opening with a shot of Gordon in a sheer, tiger-striped robe, arms outstretched in a gesture that at once beckons and demands the audience keep their distance, "Stimela" propels the listener through a pounding, energetic, emotional five minutes. The tension of the opening shot carries throughout and breaks only for Gordon's soaring vocals and the '80s Genesis-style drumbeat. It's an incredibly personal single and an equally personal video—the singer's directorial debut.

"Stimela is the very first video I directed," Gordon explained. "I wanted it to be an emotional visual art piece, displaying humans as free, powerful animals. We are all running from something or searching for something; our instincts have been ignored. This is me finally listening to them. This is to finally listening."

After this dynamic, emotional single, we have the feeling a lot of people will finally start listening.


Socialite Eva Rausing Dies of Drug Overdose


The billionaire Tetra Pak heiress Eva Rausing, one of the richest women in Britain, was found dead by police on July 11.

Eva was, at the time of her death, a trustee of one of architecture-buff Prince Charles’s most favoured charities, The Prince’s Foundation for the Built Environment and she was also a co-patron with Kate Middleton of the drug charity Action on Addiction to which she has given hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Her husband, Hans Kristian has been arrested over the death and moved from a police station to a "medical facility". The 49-year-old had initially been arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs. Following a subsequent search that afternoon of an address in Cadogan Place, a body was found.

For all the tragedy of Mrs Rausing’s death, the apparently drug-related tragedy calls into question Prince Charles’s judgement following the events of a controversial 2008 court case involving the Rausings.

Stevie Wonder Extortion: Alpha L. Walker & Tamara E. Diaz Accused Of Blackmailing Singer

A judge ordered Stevie Wonder's cousin to stand trial on an extortion charge after hearing testimony that the man and his girlfriend attempted to sell a film ranting against the singer's treatment of his family for millions of dollars.

Superior Court Judge Ray Jurado ruled Thursday that prosecutors had presented enough evidence for a jury to decide whether Alpha L. Walker and his girlfriend Tamara E. Diaz extorted Wonder by threatening to sell it to various media outlets if they weren't paid by the Grammy-winning musician.

The pair has been jailed since May 2, when they were arrested during a sting organized by Wonder's attorney and Los Angeles police. The pair was given a $10,000 down payment on a $500,000 agreement to hand over the film footage and keep its contents confidential.

2 Bullshit Britney Stories, For The Price Of One

Simon Cowell is Britney Spears’ “new diet expert,” according to Star.

The mag says the “X Factor” boss is “hoping to slim Brit down for the premiere of the second season,” so he “has her on the same crazy diet he’s doing.” Under the alleged weight loss regimen, “Brit is supposed to start her day with oatmeal and tea,” and “end with steamed salmon or skinless chicken for dinner,” claims the tabloid.

“At snack time, she can have smoothies made according to Simon’s special recipes,” which require “exotic ingredients that Simon has flown to his home every week,” adds Star. And that’s not all. Cowell is also having Spears do “weekly 30-minute infusions of magnesium and vitamins B12 and C.”

Sound like a bit much?

That’s because this story is just one big fat lie. A rep for Spears tells Gossip Cop it’s “completely not true” that Cowell has her on any such diet. In fact, Spears tweeted on Tuesday, “Simon treated us to some southern food today.” Oops.

Women Dominate Forbe's List Of The Highest-Paid Celebrities Under 30

Glass ceilings still abound, but in the music industry, a group of young women are busting it down.

On our list of the 10 highest-paid celebrities under 30, women take six spots, and four of the top five, led by Taylor Swift at No. 1. We estimate that between May 2011 and May 2012, Swift earned $57 million. Each of the 22-year-old singer’s three albums have gone platinum at least four times, meaning that in these days of waning music sales, Swift can be counted on to sell at least 4 million copies of every album.

Then there’s her concerts, which bring in an average of $1 million per night, and her endorsement work for products like CoverGirl makeup. Swift’s money and fame helped her land in 11th place on our annual Celebrity 100 list this year, which is based on earnings and metrics we’ve developed to quantify buzz.

Another young woman who is making a killing in music is Rihanna. The Barbados-born singer earned an estimated $53 million between May 2011 and May 2012, putting her in third place on the list. Her earnings this year got a big boost from an 85-night tour and her 2011 hit album Talk That Talk, which has gone gold in the U.S. and launched hits like “We Found Love.”

Like Swift, Rihanna also earns big money from endorsements. She happily promotes Vita Coco coconut water and Nivea lotion. Rihanna debuted on the Celebrity 100 this year in fourth place.

Teen Wolf at Comic-Con: 8 things you need to know

In its first season, "Teen Wolf" introduced us to a pack of werewolves and their friends and foes. In Season 2, a series of rapid-fire twists have provided us with a brilliant collision of horrific plot lines, surpassing any standard set by Season 1 and keeping viewers guessing with a relentless creativity. With every set of answers (Jackson is the Kanima! Lydia is seeing visions of dead alpha Peter Hale!) we get a list of new questions (Who is the Kanima's master? What does Peter want from Lydia?).

Zap2it sat in on the "Teen Wolf" panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, attended by cast members Tyler Posey, Dylan O'Brien, Crystal Reed, Tyler Hoechlin, Colton Haynes, and Holland Roden. We got a first look at Monday's (July 16) episode, and though they wouldn't spill on the really juicy stuff, we do have some scoop for those of you who may not have been able to attend. Here are the ten things you missed from the panel!

Widow of Nat 'King' Cole dead at 89

By Alan Duke, CNN

CNN) -- Maria Cole, the widow of singer Nat "King" Cole and mother of singer Natalie Cole, died Tuesday after a short battle with cancer, her family said. She was 89.

"Our mom was in a class all by herself," her three children said in a statement Thursday. "She epitomized, class, elegance, and truly defined what it is to be a real lady. We are so blessed and privileged to have inherited the legacy that she leaves behind along with our father. She died how she lived -- with great strength, courage and dignity, surrounded by her loving family."

Maria Cole, a jazz singer when she married Cole in 1948, was known for her strength as her husband's stardom rose and racial threats increased.

Spotted: Lauryn Hill Keeps ‘Em Waiting At Bluesfest

Per usual stunt queen behavior, Lauryn Hill was 40 minutes late for her performance at Bluesfest in Ottawa, Cana Tuesday night, scarcely avoiding breaking the city’s 11 p.m. noise curfew and aggrieving the festival’s tight schedule.

Donning oversized sunglasses and a striped dress, Ms. Hill, who recently pleaded guilty to evading more than $1 million in taxes, reportedly looked uncomfortable singing. According to a writer for the Metro News, she struggled through uninspired remixes from the 14-year-old ‘Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ (wait, how old do you feel right now?) before coming alive to rap some Fugees classic.

Can’t blame that one on island dick.

She wrapped up her set by bringing her kids on stage and letting them sing and rap. Cute gesture, but it cut into Snoop Dogg’s slot.

Check out an additional flick from the evening along with video footage of L-Boogie rocking the mic alongside Nas in Amsterdam earlier this month inside.

Justin & paps are too fast too furious.

TMZ has obtained the urgent 911 call placed by L.A. City Councilman Dennis Zine -- moments after Justin Bieber blew past him on the 101 Freeway last Friday in his sports car  ... allegedly breaking the 100mph barrier.

During the call, Zine tells the operator there's "a crazy chase going down" -- with 5 or 6 vehicles led by Justin Bieber ... "cutting off cars" and "weaving in and out" of traffic at breakneck speeds.

Zine says they're "driving like maniacs." 

Zine previously told us Bieber was going at least 100mph on the freeway -- but on the 911 tape, Zine says Bieber's going around 90.

You'll recall, Bieber was being chased by paparazzi as he flew down the freeway, weaving from lane to lane. Zine -- a former LAPD motor cop -- told us if he were on patrol he would have arrested the singer for reckless endangerment.

The CHP responded to Zine's call and a few miles down the Freeway Justin was stopped and cited for going 80.

One of the paparazzi in the chase is currently being investigated for harassment.

How Dreadful: Chris Brown Ordered To Appear In Court Next Month

And it’s not even his birthday!

The prosecutor handling Chris Brown’s assault case has “cited a possible discrepancy” in his logged hours of community service. This causing a judge to demand an audit and Breezy himself return to court next month.

During original deliberation, a judge allowed Chris to complete part of his 6-month worth of roadside clean up, graffiti removal and other manual labor tasks in his home state, Virginia.

Now, Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray says she can’t tell which hours were done there and which hours were completed in Los Angeles, if Chris ever did the community service at all.

According to The Huffington Post Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg said there are some records of work but the files haven’t been updated.

There was no mention of the nightclub brawl or the situation in Miami where a woman claims Chris stole her cell phone during Tuesday’s court session. Both would be a violation of his 5-year probation.

The community service records, and Chris, are ordered to be in court on August 21st.

How dreadful

Depressing Casting News of the Day

Mads Mikkelsen NOT Appearing In THOR 2 After All

During a recent video interview with European news site Zoom.in UK, Danish King Arthur actor Mads Mikkelsen revealed he won't be joining Marvel's expanding cinematic universe in the Alan Taylor-directed THOR 2, despite reports saying otherwise.

"That's not happening unfortunately," the actor declares. "I had a meeting with [the filmmakers], but it was a bit too late and then Hannibal came in...It's just not happening." While Mads Mikkelsen's role in the sequel was being kept underwraps, Hollywood trades were sure it was a villain alongside Tom Hiddleston's Loki.

boo, I was preparing my body for seeing him in Thor 2, who do you think his villain would have been?

MTV Renews Teen Wolf for a Third Season

Now here is some news that'll have fans howling at the moon. Sorry, that pun was terrible. Work with us, here.
During the Teen Wolf panel at Comic-Con on Thursday, it was announced that MTV had picked up the supernatural hit for a third season! And that's not even the best part!

The best part is that instead of the usual 12-episode order that Teen Wolf had been working with so far, they'll be getting a big, fat 24-episode order! Hooray for hairy high school boys and the world in which they live!

"Teen Wolf represents a terrific foray into the scripted world for the millennial MTV audience, and marks tremendous success in the continued diversification of our schedule," David Janollari, Head of MTV Programming says in a statement. "Renewing the show for a third season celebrates the creative vision of Executive Producer Jeff Davis and the remarkable talent of the cast who bring this bona fide fan favorite to life."

The renewal is unprecedented for the network, as this is the first time it has renewed a primetime scripted series for a third season, and Teen Wolf now holds the largest scripted episode order to date for MTV.
Teen Wolf, which stars Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed and Dylan O'Brien, is currently rolling out its second season on Monday nights on MTV. You can even get a sneak peek at next week's episode over at MTV.com!


 Thank you MTV for not being like ABC Family by getting me hooked on a show and then canceling it.

I didn't realize it was already posted when I submitted it but oh well.

'Breaking Bad' Season 5 Secrets: 'It's a Bloodbath … Not Going to End Pretty'

The cast give hints at what's in store starting July 15; Bryan Cranston warns, “You will s---, uncontrollably, watching this new season.”

“It’s not going to end pretty. It’s a bloodbath now, I’ll tell you that.” So says Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul of the gritty AMC drama’s fifth season, premiering Sunday July 15.

The series picks up after November's gruesome finale in which viewers saw the shocking face-melting death of Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) drug-lord nemesis Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) and were stunned by the notion that Walt possibly poisoned a young boy to save his own hide.

In The Hollywood Reporter’s cover story, the creator and cast of the darkest drama on television reveal the shocks and surprises that lay ahead for their characters in Breaking Bad’s penultimate season, including these teasers:

Lainey Blind Item: He turned out to be the cliché

He was the one we trusted who can’t actually be trusted. He used to be my answer to the question - is there anyone in Hollywood who DOESN’T cheat? Yes, I’d say, and excitedly too! Art does not imitate life! He’s faithful!

Well, no. He isn’t.

He hits on the young funny pretty ones at parties. Very typical behaviour - he loosens up with a few drinks and he turns into a pig; two of his more famous targets, both under 30, turned him down. He did however spend a few nights with a frequent co-star, over 30. They’ve worked together on major and minor projects. As for his long suffering partner? The woman we thought was the love of his life? Well, sometimes when he gets drunk and smears himself all over other ladies, she’s actually right there. She turns away. She pretends she doesn’t see. Which... kind of explains why she looks the way she does.

That said, it is a partnership. It’s not like she’s getting nothing out of it. He has used his influence to help her, certainly. Perhaps she’s decided it’s worth it.

An actor cheating on his partner is nothing new and doesn’t make for the most intriguing blind, sure. But like I said earlier, he was the one who was supposed to not be like the others. He’s the one who’s enjoyed almost unanimous popularity. And he turned out to be the cliché. I was surprised about this one. And very, very disappointed.

OP note:
Art does not imitate life: Don Draper
Frequent co-star, over 30: Kristen Wiig (SNL, Bridesmaids)
Explains why she looks the way she does: see picture
He has used his influence to help her: Friends With Kids, in which Jon starred

Marvel studios planning on two secret projects

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has revealed that they are currently working on two films in secret.

Following the smash hit success of Avengers Assemble, the studio is currently developing Iron Man 3, Thor 2 and Captain America 2. But now, Feige has said there are another two movies also in the works.

He told Bloomberg: "We want to do two films a year. Avengers is our only film this year. In a week and a half, we begin filming Iron Man 3. By the end of the summer we'll be working on the next Thor film, early next year the next Captain America film."

But he then revealed: "Those are the three we've announced so far. We've got two beyond that that we haven't announced yet that we're working on."

Possible contenders for the titles include the long-rumoured Ant-Man film, to which Edgar Wright is attached, the solo Black Widow movie mooted recently by Scarlett Johansson, and one of the Hulk films, for which Mark Ruffalo recently signed a deal.

Avengers Assemble has now become one of only 12 films in history to break the $1 billion (£623 million) mark at the box office. You can watch a clip from the movie below.


This is my first post so I hope it gets through!! I'm so excited for the secret projects! I really hope it's a Black Widow / Hawkeye film and a Ruffalo Hulk film!!

Magic Mike Audition Tape by Jason Biggs

Jason Biggs’ “unreleased Magic Mike audition tape” has surfaced on YouTube. Watch the NSFW video below. Apparently he read for Matthew McConaughey’s role (not really) and performed two of Dallas’ most memorable scenes — the opening “no, no, no, no, no” monologue and the dance tutorial. If you just want to see him strip to Ginuwines "Pony," jump to 2:53. Spoiler: There is a thong involved. 

I know this is a spoof, but L O L. Still sort of embarrassed for him either way

James Franco graduation photo, because this is super important.

So a friend of a friend of a friend works at the photo studio that takes graduation photos for UCLA.  And guess whose photo came up in the system!

Just thought I'd share!

ETA:  For everyone worrying about the girl who originally took this losing her job, I legit don't know her.  It just came up on my friend's Facebook, and I posted it.  So, if she loses her job, it's not really my problem, she shouldn't have posted it in the first place if she didn't want people to see it.

KoRn’s Jonathan “J Devil” Davis will Provide Support on Many U.S. Dates

It had to happen. Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie are hitting the road together this fall, co-headlining the “Twins of Evil” tour. Debauchery, theatrics, ghoulish imagery, and a full-on assault of all the senses are what’s in store for fans when the tour kicks off, first in the U.S. and then with a 10-country sweep through Europe.

Kicking off September 28 when both Zombie and Manson co-headline the first day of the Desert Uprising Festival in Phoenix, Arizona, expect defiant rock’n'roll showmanship in the form of these unholy rollers with the first U.S. date wrapping in Dallas on Halloween, October 31.

I'm actually really excited. The last time I saw Rob Zombie perform was when he was with Alice Cooper during the "Gruesome Twosome" tour. That was such an amazing tour, I can only imagine what Manson and Zombie can come up with.
