Starbucks is mad cuz McDreamy is stylin on them

Starbucks among group claiming Patrick Dempsey unfairly charmed coffee chain auctioneers

Daniel S Levine

Starbucks and other rivals are hoping to stop actor Patrick Dempsey’s group from completing its purchase of Tully’s coffee to save the Washington-based company from shutting down. They say that the charming actor, who plays Dr. Derek Shepherd on Grey’s Anatomy, managed to win even though he didn’t put in the highest bid.

Last month, Dempsey joined a group hoping to save Tully’s, which has locations in Washington and California. Then, last week, the group won the company with a $9.15 million bid, beating out Starbucks. The move was praised throughout Seattle, which was excited to see a local company survive.

However, The Wall Street Journal reports that Starbucks and the other losers aren’t going down without a fight. Starbucks and another company say that they put in $10.5 million bids, but they were ignored due to his "McDreamy" charm. They took their complaints to U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Seattle on Friday.

The attorneys of a Denver company that bid $4.3 million said that Dempsey’s group “may have impeded financing for qualified bidders and creates the appearance that its bid was favored.”

Still, Tully’s Chief Executive Scott Pearson has praised Dempsey for saving the company and 480 jobs.

“Many Tully’s customers strongly prefer, and paid for a Tully’s product, as opposed to Starbucks,” Pearson said in court documents Thursday, ushering the court to approve the deal.

According to The Seattle Times, Pearson also has to fight Tully’s founder Tom O’Keefe, who wanted to keep the auction going. In his Thursday filing, Pearson said that O’Keefe had no stake in the company’s actions.

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, which supplies Tully’s coffee, is also a player and could have delayed the proceedings if Starbucks won. However, it said that it would work with Dempsey AgriNature, another company that tried to buy Tully’s.

Bad week for B: Britney Spears' beloved dog falls ill

Poor Britney. If the collapse of her relationship wasn't enough, Britney Spears' puppy has been in and out of hospital. The singer feared her dog was critically ill this week, rushing it to the vet for the third time in less than two months.

The purebred teacup Yorkshire Terrier named Hannah has been struggling to breath and has developed numerous health concerns, it is reported.

'(Britney) found Hannah listless, eyes half shut, not responding to voices, not eating, and having trouble breathing,' the source told Radar Online. After an additional visit to the veterinarian the dog seemed to be doing alright but then on January 3, the dog was taken back to the vet for a battery of tests, including liver function, and had to be closely monitored after she was found to have 'an erratic temperature and fluid in the lungs'.

'Her condition remains unstable and if it were not for Britney’s money and ability to pay the vet bills, Hannah would be dead by now,' the source also told Radar Online.

There are fears the tiny Yorkie's breeding may be to blame. According to Radar Online the Til The World Ends paid $1,800 for the dog at the Barkworks store in Thousand Oaks, California and the chain store has recently come under intense criticism for allegedly obtaining dogs from puppy mills and for false advertising, according to The Animal Legal Defense Fund which has a class action suit against the company.

TMZ: Britney Spears set to make over $100 Million a year in Vegas deal

Britney Spears' team has almost locked an enormously lucrative deal which will make her a fortune in return for appearing in Las Vegas ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Britney is seriously considering picking up stakes and making her residency Las Vegas -- something just made easier after her split with fiance Jason Trawick. She's been negotiating with one of the Caeser group properties to appear in a Celine Dion-type show.

Sources connected to the negotiations tell us ... from Brit's standpoint, "The deal is a go. There are several stipulations that could throw a monkey wrench in the deal, but it's basically done."

One of the outstanding issues -- exactly what Britney will be doing. There's back-and-forth over whether she will just perform on stage at a big theater multiple nights a week, or whether she will also make appearances at functions in the hotels, nightclubs and pool day clubs.

Our sources say the money being negotiated is "astronomical" -- more than Celine's $100 mil a year.

10 Best Dressed Stars Ever at the Golden Globes: Anne Hathaway, Emma Stone & More

With the Golden Globes tonight, we're waiting with bated breath for the fierce fashion we'll see on the red carpet.

But Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and the other ladies nominated for the coveted award will have some pretty fancy designer shoes to fill. As one of the major awards shows of the season, the Globes sets the stage for some of the most memorable style statements of the year from some of Hollywood's most glamorous gals.

With that in mind, we're taking a look back at Golden Globes looks that have impressed us over the years. Whether wowing in sparkling sequins, like Anne Hathaway did back in 2011 in a dazzling Armani Privé gown, or flaunting their figures with plunging necklines like Emma Stone in a gorgeous Grecian-inspired Lanvin at last year's event, certain leading ladies have simply taken our breath away. Of course, we've also applauded fashion risk-takers like Eva Mendes, who attended the 2009 awards show in a striking strapless from Dior years before the winter-white trend was hot.

Considering how so many have been looking like a hot mess this awards circuit, I am not sure what to expect tonight. Thoughts?

Watch out Toronto!

No Way, Jose! Canseco Running For Mayor Of Toronto, And He’s Not Even Canadian
By Amber Goodhand


Former MLB bad boy Jose Canseco plans to run for mayor of Toronto — despite the fact that he’s not a Canadian citizen — RadarOnline.com is reporting. The one-time Toronto Blue Jays slugger announced his intentions to run via Twitter on Friday and has already coined the tag #yeswecanseco in an effort to take current mayor Rob Ford‘s seat. “The hug store is open! I am trading hugs for displaying YesWeCanseco signs to get the word out on mayor run. Just tweet me pic,” Jose tweeted last week.

While most locals aren’t taking his bid seriously, it looks like Jose, 48, is — and is even looking into Canadian citizenship.

Among his ideas to immigrate are:
-“My top secret get political asylum. I was born in Cuba and there is no law against dual U.S. Canada asylum. I am a refugee,” he suggested.
-“Convert to eskimo and join a tribe. They are called 1st Nation and are original Canadians although most are in Edmonton.”

What do you think Canada, is Jose your guy? He thinks so. “I will not burn out I will not fade away I am immortal and will always stay here with you,” he tweeted. “I complete you.”


Watch the First 6 Minutes of Maniac with Elijah Wood

Remaking the 1980 American horror of the same name, Maniac stars Elijah Wood and Nora Arnezeder, and has been earning promising reviews on the festival circuit since its Cannes debut last year.

Due to hit the big screen in the UK in March, we caught a rather excellent red-band trailer back in November, and with its release just over two months away, the first six minutes of the film have been released online to tease what’s to come.

“Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt.
Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition. As their friendship develops and Frank’s obsession escalates, it becomes clear that she has unleashed a long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill.”

Franck Khalfoun (P2) is behind the camera, directing from a script co-written by past collaborators Alexandre Aja and Grégory Lavesseur (Switchblade Romance), with whom he co-wrote the script on P2, and newcomer C.A. Rosenberg.

Maniac is set to be released in the UK on 15th March, and should make for a fine horror in the spring. No word yet on a US release date, but IFC Midnight have acquired the Stateside rights, so hopefully it will be landing at the same time. For now, here are the first six minutes to help you dip a toe in the water.

Please note, this is very NSFW!

Oh, the stories Jason Trawick could tell, but never will ... because TMZ has learned he signed a confidentiality agreement with Britney Spears, preventing him from ever blabbing about their relationship.

According to our sources, Trawick was approached by Britney's team when Jason signed on to be a co-conservator, which came five months after they were engaged. We're told Trawick willingly signed the confidentiality agreement, which prevents him from talking to the press about his relationship with Britney.

However, a source close to the couple tells TMZ the two are still very close and he respects her too much to ever talk publicly about their time together ... confidentiality agreement or not.

As TMZ first reported, one of the major reasons behind the split was that Britney wanted more kids and Jason did not.


Aidan Turner talks about some film stuff, remains sexy while doing so

In The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, we meet Thorin Oakenshield’s nephew Kili, a naive, rash, yet brave young dwarf played by Irish actor Aidan Turner. Kili has his own story to tell over the course of the three films. He and the elf Tauriel bring a little romantic relief to The Desolation of Smaug and, in the final film, Kili’s character is developed further as Richard Armitage (who plays Thorin Oakenshield) explains,

“In the third film we [Thorin and Kili] had some really kind of sensitive, intimate moments. He’s [Kili] such a heroic character in the first movie and his journey is fascinating and he goes through all sorts of traumas, so it was a real privilege to play that with him [Aidan] and he really gave himself up to it.”

So who is this young actor who takes Kili on this prophetically traumatic journey? Aidan Turner may be a reasonably familiar face on Irish and British TV but he is pretty much unknown to the wider audience of The Hobbit.

I met Aidan recently in London and, yes, he is as lovely in real life as on the screen. The press will tell you of his meteoric rise but he is quick to counter this with a list of theatre credits from earlier years.

Paul Krugman chastises Jon Stewart for mocking the platinum coin


Economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman slammed Jon Stewart for his segment on the platinum coin, saying that “Obviously neither he nor his staff did even five minutes of looking at the financial blogs.”

In an ABC News web exclusive, Krugman said: “It is a funny thing. But you want to be funny from a point of view of understanding what the issues are. There’s a reason we’ve gotten to this place.” He added: “Obviously neither he nor his staff did even five minutes of looking at the financial blogs which have been talking about this. Lots of people think it’s a bad idea. Lots of people think it’s a good idea. But it’s not just, ‘Oh, those idiots.’
(OP's Note: Vid won't embed, here's a link)


Krugman was answering a question about a recent blog post where he called Jon Stewart “lazy” for mocking the coin idea. “In this case, however, it’s obvious that nobody at TDS spent even a few minutes researching the topic. It was just yuk-yuk-yuk they’re talking about a trillion-dollar con hahaha,” Krugman wrote. “Hey, if we want this kind of intellectual laziness, we can just tune in to Fox.”

In the segment in question, from Thursday, Stewart says: “I’m not an economist, but if we’re just going to make shit up, I’d say go big or go home. How about a $20 trillion coin

Chaz Bono Slims Down


The 43-year-old activist has recently shed 25 pounds, sources say, but he wants to lose much more – and find true love!

“Chaz has tried everything to slim down in the past, but now he’s finally seeing results and he couldn’t be happier,” a source told The ENQUIRER.

“He’s telling everyone that this time will be different because he’s committed to listening to his doctors. But the real key to his weight loss may be his motivation – he wants to find a life partner.”

Chaz – whose parents are show­biz diva Cher, 66, and the late Sonny Bono – has struggled with his weight for years.

 In 2006, when he was still a 5-foot-5 female named Chastity, he weighed 215 pounds, and signed on to VH1’s “Celebrity Fit Club.”

He lost 24 pound, but quickly regained it all, plus more.

 In 2009, he announced he was transitioning from female to male and began hor­mone injections that contributed to his weight woes.

On the Nov. 14 episode of the syndicated daytime talk show “The Doctors,” Chaz was said to weigh 250 pounds. But sources told The ENQUIRER that Chaz  asked the show to fudge on his weight because he was actually much heavier. In September we reported that Chaz had ballooned to 345 pounds.

In any case, the brave “Dancing with the Stars” alumnus announced that he wanted to be held accountable for his weight and sought the help of Dr. Travis Stork and Dr. Lisa Masterson.

“I’m just eating too much,” he con­fessed. “My portion control is just not where it should be. This is really hard for me, and this is an issue that I don’t talk about with people because it’s so personal. I also kind of hope that the pressure of doing something publicly will give me a little bit more incentive.”

CHAZ looks great and has clearly dropped significant weight and showed off his slimmer frame while shopping with a mystery woman at The Grove in L.A. in December. The source says he’s determined to lose even more of his bulk in 2013.

Meanwhile, Chaz has been starved for love since splitting with longtime girl­friend Jennifer Elia in December 2011 – and he’s now ready for romance, said the source.

“Chaz believed Jennifer was the love of his life, but he now realizes that he was going through too much personal turmoil to let anyone get close,” explained the source.

“He says he finally has a clear plan for the future. He’s looking to lose a total of 50 to 80 pounds and then start dating.

“Chaz knows that somewhere there’s a Ms. Right for him, but he wants t to be at his ideal weight when they meet.”

Elementary @ TCA: Multi-platform traction boosts 'Elementary'

The CBS drama "Elementary" has logged strong numbers in its Thursday 10 p.m. slot in the first half of its first season.

The contempo spin on Sherlock Holmes has been fortified by solid reviews and clear chemistry between stars Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu. Since its September debut, the show has averaged 13.3 million viewers in Nielsen's live-plus-7 ratings, and a healthy 3.2 rating/9 share in adults 18-49.

But in keeping with the show's Holmesian DNA, it was the patterns that Eye brass spotted in the VOD and streaming numbers that helped seal the Eye's decision to sked "Elementary" in the plum post-Super Bowl slot on Feb. 3.

White Eskimo - the Cheshire band Harry Styles left behind for One Direction

After joining One Direction Harry Styles has become one of the most famous popstars on the planet. But what about the band he left behind?

White Eskimo are now preparing to blaze their own trail with their brand of punk pop. And they are determined to do it without Harry.

Harry was the lead singer of the Cheshire-based band for seven months before bunking off school to audition for the X Factor. And now the teenage heartthrob is performing to millions of lovestruck fans and jetting around the world.

Former drummer Will Sweeny, 18, who is now the band’s frontman, queued up with Harry at the Old Trafford auditions for moral support, not suspecting that the audition would go on to change his best friend’s life forever.

He told us: "We skived off school and stood in the queue for four or five hours.

"He auditioned because his mum applied for him and I said ‘Of course I’ll come with you.’

"I just thought it would be an experience. I never thought he would leave. In fact Harry is still a member of White Eskimo because he never told us he was leaving."

David Bowie scores first UK top ten hit in 20 years


Where Are We Now?, David Bowie's first new song in a decade, has reached the Top 10 in this week's UK singles chart.

Its placing, at six, followed initial concerns by the Official Charts Company that its sales could not be tabulated.

Bowie left his fans surprised and delighted when he released the track on Tuesday, his 66th birthday.

It was originally feared that sales of the song as a single track could not be differentiated from copies given free to those who pre-order his new album.

The track went straight to the top of the UK iTunes chart after it was put on sale.

Jodie Foster Comes Out On Live Television

Finally, after years of avoiding any official confirmation, Jodie Foster just came out at the Golden Globe Awards.

Receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award for the many, many great films she has made over the past four decades, an obviously nervous Foster first toyed with the audience a little, dancing around the issue before affirming that, yes, she is a lesbian. (She had previously thanked a female partner in a 2007 speech, but it was not an official, direct coming out.)

Well aware that people have been waiting for this moment for years, Foster explained that her delay wasn't based in shame, but in the fact that she came of age when there was a larger premium on privacy.

She was not of the era when gay or lesbian stars held press conferences to discuss their private lives, she said. But, standing up on that stage, poised and proud, Foster finally did the deed. And we couldn't be more happy for her!
