Olympic diving star Tom Daley reveals relationship with man

Olympic diver Tom Daley has revealed he is in a relationship with a man.

In a YouTube broadcast, the 19-year-old London 2012 bronze medallist said: "In spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great.

"That someone is a guy."

Daley, from Plymouth in Devon, was recently named the "world's sexiest man" by a magazine and is presenting a second series of dive show Splash.

Daley said: "It did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in my head that something like that could happen.

"But it wasn't until spring this year that things just clicked. It felt right and I thought 'Okay'.

"And my whole world changed there and then."

He added: "Of course I still fancy girls but right now I'm dating a guy and I couldn't be happier."


Bob Dylan Sued by Croats for Alleged Racism

Bob Dylan was a prominent supporter of the U.S. civil rights movement, but that isn't stopping a Croatian group from suing him for "racism."

According to Business Insider, a Croatian community association based in France is suing the rock icon over comments he made in a cover story in Rolling Stone.

In the interview, printed last year, Dylan is asked about parallels between the 1860s and present-day America, responding that the U.S. is "too fucked up about color. It's a distraction. People at each other's throats just because they are of a different color. It's the height of insanity, and it will hold any nation back -- or any neighborhood back. Or any anything back. Blacks know that some whites didn't want to give up slavery -- that if they had their way, they would still be under the yoke, and they can't pretend they don't know that. If you got a slave master or Klan in your blood, blacks can sense that.

"That stuff lingers to this day," he adds. "Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood."

Best of 2013: Celebs stealing styles

We'll never understand why celebrities steal each others' looks. They have endless money to buy their own clothes, stylists to advise them on what's already been worn and the Internet, in case they need to double check! And yet 2013 brought us some of the most blatant steals of all time, and we're not just talking two celebs wearing a similar trend.

We've seen everything from couture gowns, copied by equally famous stars, to the exact same dress on the exact same day.

Among our favorites is Taylor Swift stealing the white t-shirt and floppy hat combo from ex Harry Styles, Sharon Stone rocking the same skin-tight blue stunner as Miranda Lambert, Lady Gaga copying Britney Spears and then, Brit copying Beyoncé And of course, the triple steal between LeAnn Rimes, Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Hudson!

Check out all of our favorites and let us know the winners and losers in the comments!

This one is more like a bitches keep stealing my look! LeAnn Rimes and Kim Kardashian both wore the grey Donna Karan dress that Jennifer Hudson first stepped out in, so we naturally crowned her the overall winner.

RHOA's Mama Joyce tells Todd "You're an Opportunist!"

Kandi Burruss‘ mother Joyce unleashed her fury on the music producer’s fiance, Todd Tucker, in her continuing battle against the man she doesn’t think is rich enough to be with her daughter.

On Sunday night’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, mama Joyce didn’t hold back during a tense dinner with Kandi and Todd.

In the most bizarre moment of the night, after Kandi left the room, Joyce started singing the Diana Ross classic “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” but added her own lyrics.

“Ain’t no mountain high enough. Ain’t no ocean deep enough. Ain’t no desert hot enough to keep me off your a**, baby!” Joyce told a stunned Todd.

Rumors of a New Doctor Who Companion Surface


We met a few new characters in the Doctor Who anniversary special, “The Day of the Doctor.” Might one of them be showing up in the future? Perhaps even as a new companion?

This is the first I’ve heard of it but Doctor Who TV says there’s “persistent rumours” a new male companion could join Jenna Coleman’s Clara to travel through time and space. They point to Tristan Beint, the actor who played Tom, a coworker of Clara’s, in the anniversary special.

Teen Wolf wins the 2013 Fan Favorites TV Guide Cover!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"Teen Wolf" fans can do anything they put their minds to, and their latest demonstration of loyalty has resulted in a TV Guide Magazine cover featuring series co-stars Tyler Posey and Tyler Hoechlin.

For the magazine's annual "Fan Favorites" issue, readers were given the power to choose which of 10 popular shows graced the cover through a poll hosted on the TV Guide Facebook page, and while "Teen Wolf" was up against some heavy hitters -- "Pretty Little Liars," "Scandal" and "The Vampire Diaries," just to name a few -- it took an early lead and continued to dominate throughout the month-long competition. Give yourselves a pat on the back, guys!

The issue will hit newsstands December 5, but in the meantime, feel free to gaze longingly at TyPo's and TyHo's deep brown eyes, godlike jawlines and ripped physiques, which, yes, are sadly shrouded by those pesky things called shirts, but we trust your imaginations can work something out.

Paul Walker Death: Tyrese Gibson Breaks Down in Tears Visiting Crash Site

It's going to be a very difficult time for the loved ones, colleagues and fans of the late Paul Walker. Following the 40-year-old Fast and the Furious star's tragic death in a Santa Clarita, Calif. car crash on Saturday Nov. 30, a makeshift memorial has popped up where Walker died. After co-hosting a charity event, Walker went for a spin with a friend, Roger Rodas, in Rodas' 2005 Porsche Carrera GT; both men lost their lives when Rodas lost control of the sports car and slammed into a tree.

Among the mourners visiting the site on Sunday was Tyrese Gibson, one of Walker's costars in the Fast and Furious franchise. Paying his respects and clutching flowers for his friend, the actor, 34, broke down in tears as he examined the memorial, as evidenced in a heartbreaking video.

"My heart is hurting so bad . . . no one can make me believe this is real," Gibson tweeted on Saturday following the shocking news. "Father God I pray that you send clarity over this cause I just don't understand My heart hurts it's broken no one can convince me that this is real.... Prayer warriors please pray real hard for his only child, his daughter and family... "

Walker is survived by Meadow, his 15-year-old daughter with an ex-girlfriend. Gibson also Instagrammed a screenshot of his last round of text messages with his friend, where the two men exchanged silly banter and Thanksgiving wishes. "I love you and I'm thankful and appreciate the love and hugs that never stop," Gibson wrote to Walker, who replied, "Hahaah xoxx"

"At least I got to say I love you," Gibson continued. "…. #OurLastExchange but our laughs and moments will live forever #ThisIsWorstThanMyWorstNightmare #GodiLoveYouAndiwillneverquestionYou.... But this I just don't understand #PaulForeverFamily #MyHeartHurtsSoBad please pray for his daughter and family…"

Although an investigation into the crash is ongoing, authorities have indicated that excessive speed may have been a factor in the accident.

this is sf sad. usually i'd be against the video, but i think some jerks (especially the ones making f&f related jokes or asking who cares) out there need to see the reality of it. paul seemed like a great guy and i'm still in legit shock that this has happened.

Dark Horse claims there are Mean Pop Girls & Miley gots big balls

Katy Perry emerged the victor saleswise in this fall's so-called pop diva face-off that saw new albums released by herself, Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga, among many others.

Perry's latest, Prism, which details her phoenix-like rise from the sadness surrounding the end of her 14-month marriage to British comic Russell Brand (and eventually into a relationship with fellow musician John Mayer), holds the 2013 record for highest first-week sales by a female artist down south.

"I'm very excited about it," said Perry, 29, decked out in a lavender turtleneck, plaid skirt and purple velvet Doc Martens, and tiny white Chanel change purse, in Toronto Sunday afternoon before an invitation-only Mod Club acoustic performance-Q&A.

Kate Moss Covers 'Playboy' 60th Anniversary Issue

“Frozen” Smashes Disney Animation Opening Weekend Records

Disney’s Frozen, directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, smashed every possible box office record for a Disney film this weekend, grossing an estimated $66.7 million over the 3-day, and $93M over the five-day holiday period. The previous highest opening for a Disney film was last year’s Wreck-It Ralph, which opened with $49M. In 2010, Tangled opened in the same Thanksgiving holiday timeframe with a $48.8M weekend, and $68.7M five-day holiday. With Frozen’s breathtaking numbers, it’s hardly worth mentioning that Frozen had to settle for second place at the box office, behind the Hunger Games adaptation Catching Fire.

Harry Styles Wins British Style Award

One Direction hotpiece Harry Styles made us go weak at the knees when he turned up to the British Fashion Awards in a see-through shirt.

The You Don't Know You're Beautiful singer teamed his transparent top with a pair of very tight skinnies, a trendy scarf and a lot of hairspray.

And the 19-year-old Lothario actually won an award - the British Style Award. And he beat his idol, Becks, and the likes of Kate Moss, Kate Middleton AND even Cara D to get it.

The award "recognises an individual who most embodies the spirit of London and is an international ambassador for London as a leading creative fashion capital."

We're not sure we could think of anyone better for it.

JJ Abrams Admits He Should Have Been Upfront About Khan In STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

One of the things I detested about Star Trek Into Darkness was the way Benedict Cumberbatch’s Khan was handled. For the first half of the movie, we’re led to believe Benedict Cumberbatch is just a regular old terrorist named John Harrison or something generic like that. Then, he’s revealed as Khan! It’s supposed to be a big surprise, but it wasn’t.

On top of that, the reveal has no impact on the characters. They have no clue who the hell he is, so they call up Old Spock and ask him. It’s absolutely pointless fan service that actually hurts the movie more than it helps it. JJ Abrams is slowly realizing this and has told MTV that they handled it wrong.

It’s definitely a good thing he sees there’s stuff the movie could have done better. Hopefully he keeps this stuff in mind for his future films, like Star Wars Episode VII.

The L.A. Complex, AKA the best show you've never watch, is now on Netflix!

The L.A. Complex is a Canadian drama series which premiered on CTV and MuchMusic on January 10, 2012, subsequently airing on MuchMusic. It also began airing in the United States on April 24, 2012 on The CW, and in over 170 territories on MTV this year.

The show stars Cassie Steele (Degrassi), Jewel Staite (Flash Forward), and a bunch of other Canadians...

Some notable guest stars includes Paul F. Tompkins and Alan Thicke, who both appeared in about half a dozen episodes each.

Unfortunately, the show received very poor ratings throughout its entire run and was ultimately canceled by its broadcaster in Canada after 2 seasons and 19 episodes (petition here: link) The show was produced by the same people behind Degrassi and Instant Star, so some of the main actors and guest stars may seem familiar.

Contracted does for sex what Jaws did for beaches

Remember all those times where you didn’t use a condom during sex and spent the next few days anxiously waiting to find out if you’d be welcoming an unexpected child into your life? I know, that’s enough of a horror movie right there, thinking about the responsibility of taking care of another life, but Contracted is worse – oh, so much worse. I firmly believe that Eric England’s body-horror flick should be shown in high schools around the world when the importance of using protecting is discussed in Sex Ed classes, because having an STD is one thing, but the thought of contracting whatever the hell this STD is will probably cause any sexually active viewers to carry a whole box of condoms on their person at all times.

Fabolous: Please save America's libraries so the homeless have somewhere to masturbate


Libraries might be outdated with their ridiculous books made of paper ... but they still make great masturbation stations for the homeless ... this according to rapper Fabolous.

Fab was boarding a flight at LAX this week ... so we obviously had to ask his opinion on America's struggling libraries ... and the rapper made a solid argument for their place in the digital age.

Sure, real books are useless now ... but if we tear down the libraries, Fab says "where else are the homeless gonna get to j**k off at, man?"

Kris Jenner ‘Incredibly Proud’ Of Kim Kardashian’s Topless Video With Kanye West

Kris Jenner is striking back at sources who said she went “ballistic” after seeing her daughter Kim Kardashian topless in Kanye West‘s new video.

“I am extremely proud of my daughter Kim, and also very proud of her fiancE Kanye West. He is extremely talented and incredibly artistic,” Jenner told the Daily Mail.

Jenner was responding to what she called a “fabricated” story in Britain’s Heat magazine that quoted sources saying the momager was upset with her daughter for taking her top off in the much-kriticized video for Bound 2.

In fact Jenner has a long history of encouraging Kim to take her klothes off for the kamera.

As reported, Kim told Harper’s Bazaar that it was her mom’s idea that she pose nude for Playboy!

In the Harper’s interview, Kim recalls Kris saying, “Go for it. They might never ask you to do it again. Our show isn’t on the air yet. No one knows who you are.”

Of kourse, now everyone knows who Kim is and on a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she said that she’d konsider doing Playboy again and showing off her body after baby,

AMC's 'Turn' trailer: Say, you want a Revolution?

AMC has two new dramas coming up next year that have us more excited than anything the network has debuted since The Killing: Revolutionary War drama Turn and early-’80s computer-industry drama Halt and Catch Fire (just love that title). During Sunday’s Walking Dead midseason finale, AMC unveiled the trailer for Turn starring Jamie Bell, giving viewers a first look at the series, which is based on the book Washington’s Spies: The Story of America’s First Spy Ring. Between the popularity of last year’s Revolutionary War-set Assassin’s Creed III and Fox’s somewhat similarly themed Sleepy Hollow this fall, even younger viewers who might otherwise not be interested in a wigs-and-muskets historical drama might be intrigued by this one.

Britney Jean's metacritic score plummets

New Scathing Reviews

Britney Spears’s last hit was an ostensible collaboration with where her most audible contribution was two words (one of which was just her name) that simply referenced something she’d already done. “Scream & Shout” turns out to have been a fitting setup for “Britney Jean,” where Spears barely registers on the product with her name on it (twice). With 20 or so producers elbowing each other for focus on 10 tracks (two songs have six listed producers each), it’s no wonder there’s barely room for the singer in the swirl of swerving Ibiza keyboards (“It Should Be Easy”), dubstep bumpers (“Til It’s Gone”) and Selena Gomez castoffs (“Alien”). Her choruses to “Body Ache” and “Work Bitch,” meanwhile, sound like holding-pattern preludes to the club riffs that follow, rather than vice versa, leaving the impression that she’s merely guesting on her own material. And when Spears brings the tempo down on “Perfume,” she sounds like Gwen Stefani singing Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors.” Nowhere does “Britney Jean” sound like Britney Spears. (Out Tuesday)

Maria Bello Shares "Modern Family" Picture With Girlfriend Clare Munn and Ex-Boyfriend Dan McDermott

One big happy (modern) family! After coming out as gay in an article published in the New York Times on Friday, Nov. 29, Maria Bello shared a photo on Twitter of her family -- including ex-boyfriend Dan McDermott and new girlfriend Clare Munn.

"Giving thanks for my modern family," the 46-year-old actress captioned the photo on Saturday, Nov. 30. "Happy thanksgiving for whatever kind of family you have." In the family selfie, Bello poses with Munn, McDermott and their 12-year-old son Jackson. All four flash big smiles while sharing a group hug.

The Coyote Ugly star opened up about her sexuality in a heartfelt article, entitled Coming Out as a Modern Family, in the New York Times on Nov. 29. Bello explained how her love with longtime friend Munn evolved following her relationship with Jackson's TV executive father, McDermott. While looking through old photos of past relationships in her California garden, she decided to pursue a relationship with Munn. "It didn't occur to me, until that soul-searching moment in my garden, that we could perhaps choose to love each other romantically," she explained in her article.

Though she is now dating Munn, Bello said she will always have a close relationship with McDermott. "Jack's father, Dan, will always be my partner because we share Jack," she wrote. "Dan is the best father and the most wonderful man I've known."

After coming out as gay, Bello received a lot of support from her fans -- including Modern Family actress Julie Bowen.

"Yep, MF in title got my attention but Mario Bello's big brain and bigger heart wowed me in this wonderful article," the 43-year-old ABC sitcom star tweeted. Bello replied, "Thank you Julie. We love watching you in our house."

Actor Christopher Evan Welch dies in L.A.

Christopher Evan Welch, who appeared onstage in numerous plays, in films including Steven Spielberg’s “War of the Worlds” and “Lincoln,” Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master” and Woody Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” as well as on television, died early Monday at a Los Angeles hospital, his agency Paradigm confirmed. He is believed to have been 48. (there's nothing about the cause, so I guess they don't know yet?)

The actor had been in L.A. shooting a role in the upcoming HBO series “Silicon Valley.” Welch made his Broadway debut in 1997 in the play “London Assurance.” He played the Reverend Samuel Parris in the 2002 revival of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” on the Rialto and had a role in “Festen” in 2006. He also had numerous off-Broadway credits.

As a New Yorker and a diehard "Rubicon" fan I'm especially sad to hear this. 48 is way too young. (And yes, he was on SVU a few times, notably in that "911" ep.)

Britney Spears Talks Gay Fans: 'They're Somewhat Girls'

It's Britney, bitch.

No, really, it is. She's on the phone. And Britney Spears - the meek, reserved, media-shy entertainer - doesn't get on the phone with press very often these days.

She's speaking to me from L.A. on a busy day full of frenzied promo leading up to her eighth release, "Britney Jean," when she drops the word that elicited eye rolls from some in the gay community.

The word is "adorable," and Spears - who, in a radio interview with San Francisco radio station 99.7 NOW FM, used it to describe her beauty team (they're also "hilarious," she said at the time) - mentions it to me when I ask her how wild the gay boys go when they're in the midst of their pop princess.

"They're adorable," says Spears, 32. "They're absolutely adorable."

It seems like an appropriate time to tell her how that "adorable and hilarious" comment went viral and rubbed some the wrong way.

"Wait, what? Who felt the other way?" she asks, sincerely concerned she's offended people, and even a little lost. You get the impression Britney Spears doesn't Google herself.

So, I fill her in.

"I would never say anything to be mean to them. I love my gay fans. Gay people are always usually my best friends in the whole world," she says. "I completely adore them."
