Celebrities Who've Admitted To Having Plastic Surgery

Celebrities are forever changing their look. But when it comes to going under the knife, many play coy and keep us guessing whether they've actually had work done.

But some stars are up-front about having had plastic surgery. Amanda Bynes, for example, openly discussed her nose job on Twitter just last week.


Amanda Bynes

In May, Bynes took to Twitter to reveal: "Intouch used a photo from years ago on their cover and I hate it! The reason I've asked all magazines and blogs to stop using old photos of me is I don't look like that anymore! I had a nose job to remove skin that was like a webbing in between my eyes. I wasn't going to tell anyone, but I look so much prettier in my new photos that I don't want old photos used anymore! I'm so sick of magazines and blogs using old photos! When will they stop? I will never look like that again! Having surgery was the most amazing thing for my confidence!"

Bret Easton Ellis attacks 'gatekeepers of politically correct gayness'



Ellis rails against activist group Glaad for imposing a sanitized version of homosexuality upon complicated lives of individuals


Bret Easton Ellis, the novelist who turned being a bad boy into a literary form, has now deployed his considerable powers of invective to attack what he calls the "gatekeepers of politically correct gayness".

In a lengthy diatribe in Out magazine Ellis begins by bemoaning the way that the recent coming out of basketball star Jason Collins was handled by the media. Collins was treated, the novelist says, like a "kind of baby panda who needed to be honored and praised and consoled and – yes – infantilized".

'Once Upon a Time' to crossover with 'Wonderland' spin-off

933982_372692076172481_888767856_n

You had to figure ABC’s Once Upon a Time and its eagerly anticipated upcoming spinoff Once Upon a Time in Wonderland would cross their creative streams at some point.

But you’re not going to have to wait long for elements of one show to appear into the other.

Get this: The first episode of Wonderland currently starts in Storybrooke. We’re sworn to secrecy on details beyond that. But let’s just say that while the two shows will maintain clear and separate identities (it’s important to ABC and the showrunners that Wonderland can stand-alone with its own easily accessible story) this won’t be the last time the world Once Upon mingles over to Thursdays at 8 p.m.

I’m hedging a little about the exact placement of the Storybrooke scene in the Wonderland pilot because, as Once Upon fans know, a full episode has not yet been shot, so the order of the scenes could change from the presentation screened for ABC executives. In fact, we’re told producers only filmed 19 minutes of footage from the story they mapped out in December for the Wonderland premiere episode. That’s pretty rock star — landing a spot on ABC’s fall schedule without even shooting half an episode!

Christoph Waltz Joins Robert De Niro in 'Candy Store'

CWRDN
Christoph Waltz, last seen training Jamie Foxx in the ways of bounty hunting in Django Unchained, is joining the cast of Stephen Gaghan’s action thriller Candy Store.

Good Universe and Lionsgate are behind the movie project, which so far has attracted a cast that includes Jason Clarke, Robert De Niro and Omar Sy.

Lionsgate will distribute in North America. Good Universe is handling international sales and presenting the film as part of their slate in Cannes.

The story is set in the criminal underworld of Brooklyn and follows a former operative who discovers the global organization he fought is now in his backyard.

He teams up with a disgraced local cop (De Niro) to investigate, running afoul of an international sex trade entrepreneur (Sy), a Cold War consigliere posing as a typical American suburbanite (Waltz), and a beautiful girl, uncovering a plan to detonate a nuclear bomb in Manhattan.

Gaghan will direct and produce from a script he co-wrote with Shannon Burke. Gaghan is also producing, along with Allison Shearmur.

Good Universe’s Joe Drake, Nathan Kahane and Nicole Brown are executive producing alongside Flashlight Films’ Allyn Stewart and Kipp Nelson.

Good Universe’s Matt Leonetti will co-produce along with Suzanne Joskow.

Waltz is represented by ICM Partners.

The Colonel's Got Rings For His Fingers AND His Toes!

Sure, the book he signed up for Twitter to promote is called "Eleven Rings," but legendary NBA coach/Detroit Pistons consultant Phil Jackson actually has 13 rings — 11 earned directing the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, and two recognizing his work as a defensive-minded reserve forward on the 1970 and 1973 New York Knicks.
For many NBA types, rings won as a player would represent the pinnacle of achievement in the sport; in Jackson's case, though, they serve as sort of a precursor and accent mark to the story of his later coaching accomplishments. As such — and also because they aren't quite as flashy as what came later — it seems like we don't often see Jackson sporting the rings he won on the floor. One Zen Master Twitter follower wondered what they looked like:

Sean @sthomas141

@PhilJackson11 Phil can you post a picture of your two Knicks championship rings? I've never seen a picture of them.


Jackson, now throwing himself wholeheartedly into social media, was happy to oblige, and do so in a pretty perfectly Phil way:

Count the ringzzzzz. (Photo via @PhilJackson11)

"here’s the best I can do…the 2 Knick rings are in the front of the picture," Jackson tweeted.
"The best I can do" is fantastic — like, "I've tried everything to get these other 11 rings out of the frame, but they just won't budge, and also I'm not that good at using my cameraphone. Oh, well, I guess I'll just have to show you all 13. Sorry."
Alternatively:
"Hey, Phil, do you have five bucks I can borrow?"
"Hmm. Well, here's the best I can do — just grab that fiver in the front of this Scrooge McDuck-esque treasure heap."
"Um ... thanks?"
It's pretty rad that Jackson's willing to share this sort of stuff with his Twitter followers. It's also pretty great that he won't pass up even a small opportunity to remind us that he's got enough jewelry to put The Mandarin to shame. The lesson, as always: If you've got it, flaunt it, even when only asked for one or two of "it."

CBS gets cocky: 'We are the center of the universe'



Jimmy Kimmel joked yesterday at ABC’s upfront presentation to advertisers that CBS executives are “smug motherf–kers.”

This morning, talking to reporters at CBS’ fall schedule unveiling, CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves owned the label.

“I was very flattered when Jimmy Kimmel called us ‘smug motherf–kers,” Moonves said. “You don’t call somebody ‘smug motherf–kers’ unless they’re smug and they’re winning, so we’ll try to be a little less smug and a little more gracious, but that’s hard for me, as you know. But anyway, Jimmy, ABC is still going to finish fourth in 18-49 … we had a phenomenal year in terms of ratings.”

CBS is tracking to win the season outright among total viewers and adults 18-49, with a total audience margin-of-victory of more than 4 million viewers versus the network’s closest competitor. “I don’t care if you bow to the gods of the demographics, that’s a huge victory,” Moonves said. “That’s the largest victory in viewers in 24 years, 24 years.”

Moonves pointed out that the network’s top comedy, Thursday hit The Big Bang Theory, is not only the biggest comedy on broadcast television (averaging 15.9 million viewers including 7 days of DVR), but its repeats make it the most popular comedy on cable. “We are the center of the universe,” Moonves said.

“This is where the shows start, then they go out to the world. We’re getting paid in so many different ways than we did before.”

Added CBS scheduling chief Kelly Kahl: “I don’t think we’re smug at all, I think we’re hungry.” But then Kahl compared the ratings of Big Bang to NBC rival Parks and Recreation, and noted, “The difference between the two [shows] alone would be a top 10 show,” drawing laughs. “I’m not quite sure people understand how big Big Bang is — it’s a full rating point ahead of The Voice and Modern Family.”

Second Genesis: Chloe

TV's 'Castle' Copies L.A.'s Unsolved Elisa Lam 'Corpse Water' Case

Too soon? In Monday night's season finale of Castle, the body of a young woman was discovered in the rooftop water tank of a seedy hotel, echoing the real-life and still unsolved case of Elisa Lam.



The ABC drama is set in New York, and their murder victim was an honors student pretending to be a prostitute (Lam was a vacationing student from Canada), but the other similarities are undeniable: In Castle, the crime took place at the "Cedric Hotel"—the real-life crime occurred at the Cecil Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, a similarly seedy establishment.

Lam's body was discovered in the water tank after several days when the guests complained of low water pressure. The TV version was far more dramatic: Instead of noticing that the water was a little bit "off," blood poured out of the showers, horrifying one unfortunate guest.

A key component in the Lam case was her strange behavior before her disappearance, as caught on a surveillance camera in an elevator. The Castle episode, entitled "Watershed," also featured video footage from an elevator, but without Lam's erratic movements.

Kimye ‘Will Be Lucky To Make It Until The Baby Is Born,’ Says Friend



Kim Kardashian doesn’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to men, and a pal of the reality TV vixen worries she and beau Kanye West won’t stay together long enough to welcome their baby into the world as a united couple.

“We just do not understand why she is traveling to Paris to see him. She is the pregnant one. Kanye will fly in to see the editors of Vogue, but he won’t fly in to see the lady carrying his child,” a close friend of the Kardashian family tells Naughty But Nice Rob.

“The only way they have a future is if Kim continues to do whatever he says,” the insider adds.

As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, Kim, 32, and Kanye, 35, have spent a majority of her pregnant apart — she’s been jetting around the world, while Kanye has been suspiciously working on a new album not in the U.S., but in Paris.

Disney Pulls Merida Makeover Amid Controversy




By LINDSAY LOWE
Merida's not the only Disney princess to get a makeover recently. Earlier this year, Disney released new looks for all the classic princess, making them overall more sparkly and "modern." What do you think?

Disney gave their newest princess a makeover, and many thought they went too far. Merida, the tough, spunky heroine of Disney/Pixar’s Brave, was crowned as an Official Disney Princess on May 11, and it seems Disney thought she needed a new look for the occasion. Her figure filled out, her lips grew plumper, and her wild red hair, while still big and curly, looked more maturely styled.

Kim Kardashian Is Just Hearing About The Rumor That Kanye Is Getting It On With Riccardo Tisci



The rumor that Kanye West is letting Givenchy's creative director Riccardo Tisci pull up his leather kilt at the end of the night has been around for a while now, but I guess when you're like Kim Kardashian and live in a fart bubble of narcissism, all non-Kardashian news never makes it into your ears. But after Kim wore a Givenchy sofa carcass to the Met Gala, some of her Twitter followers told her about the rumor that Kanye is gargling on the nutsack of the dude who designed her dress.

InTouch (via Radar) says that Kim's followers told her that Kanye's apartments in NYC and Paris are really close to Riccardo's apartments, which totally means that they're doing it. InTouch's source says that Kanye does spend a lot of time in Paris with Riccardo, so Kim started freaking out.

“There are some facts Kim can’t deny. Kanye has spent her entire pregnancy living close to Riccardo in the French capital and Riccardo recently purchased an apartment less than half a mile from Kanye’s in NYC’s Soho neighborhood. Kanye is obsessed with Riccardo. They have a very deep bond. They spend a lot of time together at Kanye’s apartment.

Kim freaked out. If it turns out Kanye is involved with Riccardo, she will be utterly embarrassed — more so than she’s ever been in her life."


Can I get a "BITCH, PLEASE"? If Kim hasn't been embarrassed by her pimp mom, her plastic face, her fake wedding, her boring sex tape, her clothes and her entire existence, then I doubt this will embarrass her. Utterly. Kim doesn't care if Kanye fucks men or fucks armadillos as long as he keeps her on the cover of every tabloid.

I just hope that if Kanye is involved with Riccardo that he properly moisturizes and lubes up that dry E.T. finger of his before they get into fingerbanging fun time.

Mo’Nique Discusses Dramatic Weight Loss Since ‘Precious’: ‘I Was a Food Junkie’

moneats

Mo'Nique is serious these days about taking care of her health, and in a new radio interview, she's revealing some of the secrets behind her workout routine and new svelte figure.

The 45-year-old actress and comedienne, who won the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award in 2010 for her role in "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire," sat down this week with The Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg Show on New York radio station Hot 97 FM for a long-ranging half-hour interview, in which she discussed topics ranging from Charles Ramsey to Iyanla Vanzant. But the story behind her dramatic weight loss is what's turning heads.

Mo'Nique has been tweeting her daily workouts, most days posting snapshots of her odometer once it has logged her minimum "10,000 steps," along with various other fitness activities. She explained to the show hosts that the reason why she's been documenting her journey is to be an inspiration to others.

"I tweet every morning, my workouts," she began. "Because I want women to see - especially us big women - that you don’t have to let them cut you and suck it out, you don't have to let them staple you up, you don't have to let them give you a pill, you don't have to let them put a band around your organs. If you put the work in, baby, I promise you, it comes off."

And come off, it has! "The weight right now, when I got on a scale two weeks ago, was 218," she continued. "My goal is between 190 and 200."

"What were you before?" co-host K. Foxx then asked Mo'Nique.

"Well now, you see K … what I was before was … when my husband asked me I said, '262,' but I don't actually know if that was the right number. That was the weight that I had a year prior to him asking me that. But when I watch reruns of 'The Parkers,' I know I was tipping 300."

"And how do you feel?" K asked.

"I am the best Mo'Nique I've ever been in my life right now. And I still have a ways to go. But I feel amazing sis."

Mo'Nique added that she's proud of herself and believes she has never looked this good in her life before. And while she emphasizes that she always felt in the past that she was a big and beautiful woman, she says it is her husband who caused her to step back and look at the damage she was causing to her body (due to her weight).

"It made me say (to myself), 'OK sis, you got these babies. The twins are 7, (stepson) Michael's 9, Shalon's 22.' And I want to meet their babies. So, I said, 'Let me stop being selfish, and eating everything.' And I ate everything … I was a food junkie."

And it looks from these pictures like she's doing quite well on her way to recovery!

'Star Trek': 9 of the weirdest fanfiction stories



Warning: This article contains language and/or sexual references that younger readers are advised to avoid.

Fanfiction is an integral part of Star Trek history. Most people will tell you that Kirk and Spock were the first ever 'slash pairing' - for the uninitiated, that's a fan-imagined romance between two characters of the same sex - although others reckon this stuff goes back as far as the Bible.

(We don't recommend dwelling on that last thought for too long, by the way.)

And while the likes of EL James haven't done much to improve its unsavoury rep, fanfiction in its place is a fine and admirable creative pursuit, allowing young writers to develop their technique within an established universe and take an active role in the fandoms they love.

A lot of it's also much better written than the soul-destroying novelisations that film studios pay half-rate writers to churn out. We're all for fanfiction at Digital Spy, make no mistake. That being said, there is some very, very weird stuff out there in the Trek fandom. We've selected nine of the best examples - a mix of story summaries and actual extracts – to prove our point.

First Look at Anna Kendrick in New "Drinking Buddies" Stills



Joe Swanberg’s SXSW premiered “Drinking Buddies”, as the title suggests, features a lot of alcohol consumption, so it’s no surprise that two new photos from the film rarely feature a character without a glass in their hands. The new photos feature our first look at Anna Kendrick and Ron Livingston as the other two legs of the love quadrangle at the center of the romantic drama.



Olivia Wilde and “New Girl”‘s Jake Johnson have the leads in the most improvised film, as two co-workers at a Chicago brewery who spend their shifts drinking and flirting with the line between friendship and something more, which is complicated by the fact that they both have significant others (Kendrick and Livingston). We haven’t seen the film, but it appears Kendrick and Livingston may get in on the blurring of lines between platonic and something more as well. Oh, alcohol, ruiner of lives and relationships. You’re so great.

“Drinking Buddies” releases on VOD on July 25th and in theaters on August 23rd. Two new stills from the film can be found below.

Taylor Swift fan arrested after two-mile swim to her beach pad at 2am



An obsessed Taylor Swift fan was arrested near the singer's Rhode Island beach home early this morning after allegedly SWIMMING up to her house, TMZ has learned.  Law enforcement tells us Lucas H. Vorsteveld, 22, of Chicago was taken into custody for trespassing after he admitted to swimming up to the beach in front of Swift's home around 2 AM.

Here's the back story -- around 2:20 AM, cops spotted the man getting out of the ocean, around 1 mile from Swift's home. Cops approached the guy and asked him what he was doing in the water -- and the man allegedly told police he had just completed a swim, in which he intended to meet Taylor.

Sources say the man told cops he swam all the way to Swift's beach, but saw her security team and decided to swim back to where he came from (roughly 2 miles round trip in cold water). Vorsteveld indicated he was in town from Chicago and did not have a residence in town. The man was hauled to a nearby police station where he was booked for trespassing.

We spoke to the Westerly Police Dept. which tells us, "There is a zero tolerance policy for trespassers." The cops say they have already met with Taylor's security to discuss the matter.

Westerly Police Capt. Shawn Lacey was asked how the department would cope with the level of celebrity in his town: “It’s a learning curve for all of us. She has security on her property and if they need us, they will call us. We’ll see how this all goes.”

Last December, another Swift stalker was arrested for trespassing at her parents' house in Belle Meade, Tennessee. He allegedly hopped the fence near Swift's property and was reportedly carrying a knife when he was arrested. According to the cops, Kulke said he was Swift's boyfriend and that he'd traveled by bus from Wisconsin to be with her on her birthday.

Russian billionaire Vladimir Doronin replaces Naomi with younger model


Their five year relationship is thought to have come to an end, although both Naomi Campbell and Vladimir Doronin have remained tight-lipped about their current status.

The billionaire businessman was spotted lounging around on a yacht off the shores of Miami with a model called Georgie Badiel as she was hard at work in the UK.

Looking utterly relaxed the 50-year-old the Russian tycoon was seen lying back on the yacht.

Despite the warm weather he kept his jumper on while wearing his swim shorts, perhaps planning on going for a swim at the some point. His slim companion who was dressed in a purple bandeau bikini and baseball cap lay near him as they soaked up the sun.

And while her rumoured ex was busy sunning himself, Naomi was shooting scenes for her hit TV show The Face which is she bringing to the UK following its success Stateside.
The model looked more than happy as she got to work alongside Erin O'Connor and Caroline Winberg, and the ‘split’ looked the furthest thing from her mind.
Reports emerged recently that Naomi and Vladimir are going through a rough patch, with a source telling The New York Post: 'Naomi and Vlad have broken up, and he's been out partying in New York.'


'Naomi and Vlad have a complex relationship, and sometimes break up and make up. In many ways their relationship is like a business arrangement.'
And another source in Manhattan who has seen Vlad on the town, said: ''It’s incredible, they were talking about babies and marriage before Christmas and they were so in love, so it’s quite shocking that things have gone downhill so fast.

LUCKY 7 on ABC – First Look


ABC’s take: “In Astoria, Queens, a group of seven gas station employees have been chipping into a lottery pool for months, never thinking they’d actually win. Money could solve problems for each of them: Matt (Matt Long) could get his girlfriend and two kids out of his mother’s house; Matt’s brother, Nicky (Stephen Louis Grush), an ex-con, could pay off a dangerous debt; Samira (Summer Bishil), a second-generation Pakistani immigrant, could afford to go to Juilliard; Denise (Lorraine Bruce), a plucky cashier, could focus on rebuilding her crumbling marriage; Leanne (Anastasia Phillips), a young mother, could help her daughter realize her dreams; Bob (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.), the store’s manager, could finally retire; and Antonio (Luis Antonio Ramos) could give his wife and kids a whole new life.

“Lucky 7″ stars Isiah Whitlock, Jr. (“The Wire”) as Bob Harris, Matt Long (“Private Practice”) as Matt Korzak, Stephen Louis Grush (“Detroit 1-8-7″) as Nicky Korzak, Lorraine Bruce (“Eden Lake”) as Denise, Anastasia Phillips (“Stoked”) as Leanne, Summer Bishil (“Towelhead”) as Samira Rajpur, Luis Antonio Ramos (“The Ruins”) as Antonio Clemente and Christine Evangelista (“The Joneses”) as Mary.

Zoe Saldana: Angelina Jolie Is "the Ultimate Badass" for Going Public About Double Mastectomy—Watch Now





http://et.tv/15MyP1e

((Link because embed codes outside Youtube hate me for some reason.))

Angelina Jolie's got a fan in Zoe Saldana.

At the Hollywood premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness Tuesday, the sci-fi leading lady praised Jolie's preventive decision to get a double mastectomy.

"If she were here, I would just say thank you for being so brave," the 34-year-old actress told Entertainment Tonight. "And [know] that by sharing your personal experience you're going to empower and inspire a lot of women that are victims of cancer right now to heal and to survive."

In fact, Saldana described Brad Pitt's lady love as "the ultimate badass!"

And director J.J. Abrams noted that the 37-year-old star's candor about a difficult situation has " taken away any kind of shame or uncomfortable-ness that people might have in people discussing it."

Clearly, Tinseltown is proud of Jolie for informing so many about a potentially lifesaving way to be proactive about their health.

Pierce Brosnan's wife says onscreen romance is legal cheating.

Irish actor Pierce Brosnan says Keely, his wife of nearly 12 years, is remarkably understanding when it comes to his romancing actresses on the big screen.

The former James Bond star can now be seen opposite Danish actress Trine Dyrholm in the romantic comedy "Love is All You Need."

Asked how the real-life mother of his two youngest sons feels about his cinematic dalliances, the 59-year-old Brosnan told reporters in New York recently, "My wife calls it 'legal cheating.'

"She said this at a dinner party once and I just about choked on my shrimp," he laughed. "I'm a lucky guy, what can I say? Women are beautiful and it's just a great job that I have to be able to fall in love and play out the romance of life and the sexuality of life, however, if I were to go down every avenue, I wouldn't be here. I'm not very good at such a job as going out there and leading such a life. I want to have my cake and eat it, so to speak. It's lovely being out there with Trine or whatever leading lady and make movies and make romance, but I like the stability of one woman and family and the continuity of that."

Though she said before that she got "great feedback" from the porn companies that wanted to buy her sex tape, not everyone is a fan. Fellow Teen Mom Catelynn Lowell, for example, tweeted that her former costar sounded like a "dying horse" on the video. But Abraham seems unfazed by the criticism.

"I know what jealousy looks like," she told Us of Lowell's tweet. "I am trying to be a role model for the other Teen Moms. I try not to knock them down. I try to better them."

Then, addressing Lowell specifically, she added: "Catelynn has a weight issue, but I don't say harsh things about her to hurt her self-esteem.

Five Anime You Should Be Watching This Season

We are now about halfway through the Spring anime season of 2013, and for weeks now I have been bombarded with the question, “What anime should I be watching this season?”

Well, with a good chunk of episodes under my belt from many of the different series, I feel it’s now safe to answer that question.

Now keep in mind, these are the anime that should not be missed this season—but that doesn't mean all the others are objectively bad; it just means that the following five series are a cut above the rest.

OoOoOohhhh so I have to start writing reviews to get Colin's attention, done.

Colin Farrell takes criticism to heart

colinhellothere

Dead Man Down actor Colin Farrell always reads reviews of his performances and takes harsh criticism personally.

The 36-year-old Dublin man admits he tried to read as many reviews of his performance in Oliver Stone's critically panned Alexander as possible, even though the experience was difficult.

Speaking to Nuts magazine, Farrell said: ''I got some pretty special reviews. Unfortunately, I went to all four corners of the world to find every word I could that was written about it. I read it all. It was pretty tough.'I say tough from a very sensitive, emotional place. It aint tough in the grand scheme of things, but when you put yourself out there and you're really criticised and kinda called ****, it's not nice. So sure, you do take it personally.''

Farrell further revealed that he puts his heart and soul into every project, adding: ''I work as hard as I can. I think my way through it a lot, and I feel my way through it a lot, and it means something to me. Even Total Recall - a big summer movie, cost a ******* fortune. Even that. I couldn't have worked on that if I couldn't personalise it. Genuinely.''

Scrutinizing SHIELD's Agents and Cast Promo Images

The agent’s ID cards flesh out the characters a bit. Each lists the characters’ S.H.I.E.L.D. title and a QR code of sorts, but there’s nothing to be gained there because the codes are, so far, unreadable.

More interesting are the issue and expiration dates of each agent’s credentials. Though they could be arbitrary, the differences between them are peculiar. Coulson’s start date is listed as April 25, 2011. Is that a nod to the start date of filming for The Avengers? If so, what does that mean? Also, his card expires April 25, 2015. Are ID cards issued for four-year runs? That would make sense, except May says her card is valid from Sept. 4, 2013 until that same date in 2019, a five year span. Agents Fitz and Simmons have start dates of Feb. 5, 2013 (makes sense, considering the rumored “sibling like” relationship they are supposed to have) and end dates five years later. Poor Ward gets only two years, from Sept. 9, 2013 until that same day in 2015. Perhaps that’s because he’s a n00b to Level 7?

Also, I found this little blurb and some cast promo shots:
"Coulson's team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage; Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), expert pilot and martial artist; Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), brilliant engineer; and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet)."

A&F Brand readjustment....this guy is a god

Remember a few days ago the CEO of Abercrombie and Fitch, Mike Jeffries, said he did not want "uncool" people to wear his stuff and there would be no XL sizes anylonger because his brand is for cool people and not the fat one's?

This Is Mr. Jeffries:

Neil Gaiman on re-writing Doctor Who: Clara was originally going to stay as a Victorian governess



Clara. The Impossible Girl. A mystery wrapped in an enigma. A character who pops up throughout space and time – as a Dalek, as a Victorian governess in last year's Doctor Who seasonal special, as the modern-day Ms Oswald viewers are now familiar with. The lynchpin of the revelation-filled series seven finale. But it could all have been so much more simple...

"The original companion was going to be very much the Victorian governess we saw at Christmas," Doctor Who writer Neil Gaiman told Radio Times, while discussing the genesis of his most recent story, Cybermen vehicle Nightmare in Silver.

Chloë Sevigny on Gwyneth Paltrow's Met Gala Complaints: "Maybe Her Sleeves Were Too Tight"


As the new face of Absolut Elyx Vodka as well as a renowned actress, former model and style icon in her own right, Chloë Sevigny is no stranger to the spotlight.
In fact, the trendsetter is also a pro at fielding press interviews, so much so that she recently went on the record last night with New York mag to discuss Gwyneth Paltrow's recent complaints about last week's Met Gala.
"Maybe her sleeves were too tight. If you're in a dress where you can't breathe, then you're not comfortable," she said, explaining that her own Proenza Schouler design was specifically made so she could move with ease at the fashion affair. "You have to wear comfortable shoes and an outfit you can be okay in."
And while Gwyneth made it pretty clear to USA Today that she's never going to the Met Gala again, Sevigny offered some supportive insight as to why the grand gala might not be well-received for all attendees.
"I think it depends on what table you're at, and who you're with, and obviously your attitude. But it's a lot of hoopla over not a lot. Everybody thinks it's so much pressure, and you do the carpet and it's such a big deal, and it's just a museum fund-raiser, you know?"
So true. Way to weigh in with a refreshing dose of down-to-earth sensibility, Chloë!

There are also reports that Madonna completely ignored ex bff Gwyneth and instead talked to Beyonce for most of the night and made sure she showed Gwyneth she was having fun with her A list friends and didn't need her.

Rita Ora’s £500k deal to model Madonna's & Lola's clothes


RITA ORA should get used to wearing cone bras and leotards.
She’s signed a £500,000 deal to be the face of MADONNA’s clothing brand, Material Girl.
The singer has already shot campaign photos for the label, which is run by Madge and her daughter LOURDES.
And the endorsement from the veteran star could help Rita crack the US, where she still needs a big break. A source said: “Lourdes has been a fan of Rita for a while and has been to many of her gigs. She persuaded her mum to see her.
“They met at the Met Ball in New York last week and Madonna admired Rita’s attitude so signed the idea off.
“Rita jumped at the chance because she’s such a fan of the Queen Of Pop.
“She also hopes it will help her crack the States in the same way she has the UK.” Rita already has an influential mentor in JAY-Z. He signed her to his label Roc Nation when she was just a teenager.
Rita’s in good company posing in Madonna and Lourdes’s clobber.
KELLY OSBOURNE, GEORGIA MAY JAGGER and American singer, actress and model TAYLOR MOMSEN have all modelled for Material Girl.
The brand, sold in Macy’s stores in the US, is 1980s inspired and is aimed at teenagers.
It means a lot of the creative direction comes from young Lourdes.
That will please Rita when the pics are plastered all over billboards.

Kanye West's $750,000 Lamborghini Hit By Kim Kardashian's Electric Front Gate



That's gotta hurt! Kanye West's $750,000 Lamborghini, a birthday gift from girlfriend Kim Kardashian, was hit by her electric front gate in L.A. on Tuesday, May 14.
According to TMZ, the 35-year-old rapper wasn't driving the luxury vehicle at the time of the incident, which was caught on camera.

The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 was being delivered to the home by a driver after getting serviced, when the front gate began closing on the car. The high-end automobile was smushed on both sides before it pulled inside the driveway.

TMZ reports that a repair shop quickly sent a mechanic to the home to check out the extent of the damage.

The mishap comes several days after the "Mercy" rapper sustained an injury himself. On May 10, West was photographed accidentally walking into a street poll while house-hunting with Kardashian, 32. But his pregnant girlfriend -- demonstrating her maternal gifts -- gave him a kiss on the forehead.

‘Hannibal’ Subject Of Outside Interest While Awaiting Renewal Decision At NBC



Last month, NBC’s “Hannibal” attracted 4.6 million viewers in its debut before slipping to about 2.6 million viewers for the two most recent episodes. And while NBC was said to be considering an early renewal at one point, “Hannibal” now has the odd distinction of being the only scripted drama on a broadcast network that isn’t renewed or canceled.

But that doesn’t mean that Hannibal Lecter’s murderous ways are ending soon. Deadline is reporting that Amazon and at least one unnamed cable network are interesting in picking up “Hannibal” if NBC decides not to renew it.

For most broadcast programs, a jump to cable isn’t always feasible due to budget issues and license fees. However, “Hannibal’ is produced by Gaumont International Television; which has already sold the series in several countries around the world. Consequently, Gaumont’s asking price for “Hannibal’s” U.S. broadcasting rights is reportedly only “a fraction of what dramas with similar production values cost.” That alone would make it an attractive pick up by a cable network. “Hannibal” is also one of the few NBC dramas that has the attention of critics and a passionate following among TV fans.

“Hannibal” is a contemporary update of the characters created by Thomas Harris in his novel “Red Dragon,” with Hugh Dancy as Special Agent Will Graham, Laurence Fishburne as Special Agent-in-Charge Jack Crawford and Mads Mikkelsen as the title character, Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

New episodes of “Hannibal” will air on NBC until the first season finale on Thursday, June 20.
