Everybody is Staying for RHOA Season 7 + RHOBH Season 5 Delayed Due to Pay Disputes?


After this past season smashed Bravo ratings records, it appears all the ladies of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” will likely be returning to the show.

Porsha William’s attack on Kenya Moore during the “RHOA” Season 6 reunion show taping led to rumors that a shakeup was coming to the show’s cast. Many suspected that Williams would lose her spot for physically attacking Moore. And Moore and fellow housewife Nene Leakes both hinted at their possible departure from the show.

But Radar Online says sources speaking with site have revealed the entire cast has been asked to return for a seventh season.

“All of the ladies are coming back, they’ve all been given their contracts,” a source revealed to Radar. “That brawl between Porsha [Williams] and Kenya was the best thing to happen to the show and the Bravo producers want all of the women back for more drama next season.”

Many fans of the show demanded the firing of Moore since they believed she instigated the fight with Williams. Others said that Porsha needed to go for getting physical with a cast mate, and some even hoped Leakes would be on the chopping block for her role in much of this past season’s drama.

However, with the record-breaking ratings the ladies brought in during the sixth season, it’s really no surprise they have all been asked to return. Playing off of the established issues between the cast members will equal guarantee drama. Plus, witnessing the fallout from the battle between Williams and Moore will draw in viewers as well.

The source added the only issue Bravo may face from trying to lock down the full cast is money.

“Everyone wants more money this season,” the source told Radar. “They KNOW how well the show does, how all of them are making those network folks tons of money and the ladies want a part of that.”

Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks are all reportedly in negations for the next season. And in a recent interview with Hollywood Life, Leakes said, to her knowledge, the whole cast is “good to go.” But Bravo has yet to make an official announcement about the network’s final casting decision.


More like 'Real GROUSEwives of Beverly Hills' -- Kyle Richards and co. are refusing to sign contracts to film the next season of the show ... effectively staging a holdout until they ALL get more money.

According to sources, 5 cast members have been asked to return for the fifth season -- Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Brandi Glanville, and Yolanda Foster -- but so far, zero have agreed to come back.

As we reported, Lisa has made it very clear she's on the fence about renewing her contract for personal reasons -- but we're told the other women are, more predictably, holding out for fatter paychecks.

Sources tell us negotiations have been intense, but Bravo is close to finalizing deals for everyone except Lisa, who remains a question mark.

As for who will replace the cast members who got bounced -- Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia -- it's unclear ... but we're told the new fiancee of Yolanda's ex-husband is a front-runner. Wonder why.

Brad Pitt opens up about 'nutter' in Maleficent red carpet clash

Prior to walking the carpet with Jolie and five of their six kids, Pitt clashed with notorious Ukranian ex-journalist Vitalii Sediuk, who jumped a police barrier to get to the actor. Sediuk was promptly arrested, and Pitt continued to sign autographs for eager fans.

In an exclusive statement to PEOPLE, Pitt is now giving his take on the run-in.

"I was at the end of the line signing autographs, when out the corner of my eye I saw someone stage-diving over the barrier at me. I took a step back; this guy had latched onto my lapels. I looked down and the nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch, so I cracked him twice in the back of the head – not too hard – but enough to get his attention, because he did let go."

Jonah Hill sorry for homophobic slur: "I'm happy to be poster boy for thinking about what you say"


Jonah Hill hopes other people learn from his mistake.

Over the weekend, photographers followed the 22 Jump Street actor as he and a friend strolled the streets of L.A. Hill tried to ignore the paparazzi, but eventually, the 30-year-old movie star got fed up. One cameraman repeatedly taunted Hill, saying, "I like the shorts though, bro. They are pretty sexy." The paparazzo followed Hill down a side street before giving up and telling him, "Have a good day." At that point, Hill hurled a homophobic slur at the photographer. "Suck my d--k, you f----t," he snapped.

Realizing the error of his ways, Hill apologized for his poor choice of words Tuesday on The Howard Stern Show. "This is a heartbreaking situation for me," the Wolf of Wall Street star said apologetically.

Howard Stern commented that he sounded "angry," but Hill said, "Anger is not the right word at all."

"12 Years a Slave sucked up all the guilt about black people," claims Mandela Screenwriter

British screenwriter William Nicholson has brushed off Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’s awards disappointment with a controversial explanation.

Oscar-nominated Nicholson, 66, believes the Nelson Mandela biopic starring Idris Elba was not a huge box office success because 12 Years a Slave “sucked up all the guilt about black people that was available” before his movie was released.

“I think it worked superbly,” he told an audience at the Hay Festival. “I’m incredible proud of this film. Unfortunately it didn’t get the kind of acclaim that I wanted. It didn’t get Oscars.”

Mia Wasikowska: I don't read about myself

Australian actress Mia Wasikowska, 24, is at the Cannes Film Festival promoting Maps to the Stars, which also stars Robert Pattinson and John Cusack. It’s the day after the premiere which she attended in a traffic-stopping, plunging navy blue Louis Vuitton dress, but now on a warm afternoon on the French Riviera, she’s dressed more casually in a sleeveless black dress and flats. Down to earth and devoid of much make-up, the pretty blonde actress talks about her role in the controversial film she’s here to promote. Next up, she’s starring in The Double with Jesse Eisenberg.

Q: Can you talk about your [MTTS] costume?
WASIKOWSKA: The main part of her costume is that she always had the gloves on which were covering the scars and there were some interesting pieces that were kind of skeletal in a way. Like, there was one jumper which the back almost looked like a skeletal version of wings. I don’t know, I liked it; it was darker than I imagined. I thought she would be in pink, but the designer liked muted colours.

Q: Wearing that prosthetic [makeup], did that really help you get into the mind-set of the character?
WASIKOWSKA: Yeah, I liked it. I liked wearing it and I remember walking around the production office and people looking at you differently. It’s good because it gives you a kind of insight into what it would be to live with that thing on your face.

The interviewer is really awkward ("that prosthetic thing"), but it's Mia, so no complaints here.

Apple says many users "bought an Android phone by mistake"

Apple CEO Tim Cook spent a moment during his keynote at the company's Worldwide Developer Conference today comparing user adoption of OS X Mavericks with that of Windows 8, mocking Microsoft's OS for only managing to convince 14% of the total Windows user base to the 8.x versions. But Windows wasn't the only operating system that he spent time berating.

After sharing some pretty impressive sales figures for the company's iOS devices, Cook said that around 130 million customers have purchased their first Apple device in the last twelve months. That's certainly a figure to be proud of, whichever way you slice it, but rather than focus on that positive statistic, he decided instead to berate the competition.

"Many of these customers were switchers from Android," he said. "They had bought an Android phone by mistake, and then had sought a better experience and a better life." He added that almost half of those who have purchased an iPhone in China since December have switched from Android. However, it is worth noting that iPhones were not actually available in China until December, when pre-orders began, so it is unclear how much of the device's popularity there is simply down to the novelty factor, rather than a burning desire to flee from Android.

There's nothing quite like a bit of negative marketing.

Chaz Bono Wants To Wed Courtney Act


Chaz Bono wants to marry a leggy Australian drag queen, insiders say, and it’s sent his superstar mom Cher over the edge!

“Cher is having a full-blown meltdown,” a source told The EnQUIRER. “She finally accepted Chaz’s gender change, but now she’s terrified that he’ll end up worse off.”

The object of Chaz’s affection is Shane Jenek, a 33-year-old better known by his drag queen stage name, Courtney Act.

Jenek shot to fame as a semifinalist on “Australian Idol” in 2003 and has since built a career as a pop singer and entertainer.

Chaz, 45, met Jenek while serving as guest judge on the reality TV show “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” where Jenek was competing as Courtney, and “Out Magazine” columnist Michael Musto noted in a recent interview that Chaz seemed “hot” for Courtney on the show, and Courtney agreed.

“Chaz was quite beguiled,” the 5-foot-9 Down Under entertainer noted. “That was the first time we met, but we’ve gone on to become good friends.”

Lancome To Launch Luxury Edition of La Vie Est Belle (Julia Roberts Shoots New Campaign)

THE French cosmetics brand will soon introduce a more intense, haute parfumerie-inspired version of the women's fragrance launched in 2012. La Vie Est Belle L'Absolu will arrive in August.

Dominique Ropion and Anne Flipo, the same noses behind the first editions of La Vie Est Belle, developed this more intense, high-end variation.

The two fragrance artists chose to magnify the sweeter aspects of the original essence, preserving its signature notes such as sweet iris, praline, pear, blackcurrant and tonka bean.

But the Absolu edition stands out through the addition of several richly concentrated essences, including jasmine absolute, orange blossom absolute, Rosa damascena and cashmeran.

Julia Roberts, who has fronted the campaigns for La Vie Est Belle since the perfume's launch, will of course be Lancôme's ambassador for this new version.

The American actress will lend her legendary smile to a new campaign shot by Carter Smith.

Most curious reaction to entering a hotel: All the guys

I'm always tickled by the way people on television are made to lose their minds over hotel suites. Don't get me wrong—I am practically the mascot of small rooms with double beds and garage views. There's nothing wrong with appreciating cool accommodations. But you can do that without flinging your body against the walls or, in this case, rub-a-dub-dub, cramming into the tub with seven other full-grown men, and toasting with... imaginary shots?

Alan Cumming Rouges His Nipples, Eats No Flesh, Strokes His Nipples, Feels Like Daddy, Has Nipples

Alan Cumming has to pee.

“Keep talking!” he commands, continuing the conversation as he steps into the toilet of his dressing room on the top floor of Studio 54.


The time is drawing near for him to get into makeup and costume for the evening performance of “Cabaret,” but he doesn’t seem concerned. Earlier, he collected trash from the previous night’s “soup and booze party,” part of a postshow 23rd birthday shindig for one of the Kit Kat Boys. Cumming takes a sip from one of the plastic cups — “Oh! That’s not what I thought it was going to be” — then heaves a large Crock Pot (for cooking soup, of course) to a higher shelf.

“I like this balance of fun; it’s lovely having young energy around me,” he says. “I feel young; I’m obviously not. I do feel like Daddy. We’re really getting on. At the same time, they are just my co-workers. I think it’s nice that you can show people of that age that you can still be fun and kind — and not an asshole.”

Cumming may be the only Broadway star whose dressing room is sponsored by a liquor company (and shelves bulge with dozens of Bulldog and Skyy bottles to prove it), and he certainly doesn’t let it go to waste. “We’ve had as many as 40 people in here,” he says. “It’s like a little apartment. Doing a show gets in the way of your social life, so it’s nice to hang out in here.”

He flushes, washes his hands, and continues without missing a beat. Although it’s his star power — along with Michelle Williams as Sally Bowles — that’s bringing the eager hordes to the theater to see him teasingly croon in the revival, it doesn’t mean he has a lockjaw attitude about never missing a performance. In fact, Cumming missed the previous day’s matinee due to the role for which he’s now familiar to most of America, that of Eli Gold on CBS’ “The Good Wife.” He kicked off an upfronts spectacle by taking the stage to sing “Willkommen” in character as Eli before stripping down to reveal his Emcee suspenders costume ...

Dr. Dre Buys Tom Brady & Gisele's McMansion for $40 MILLION DOLLAHS


Dr. Dre has purchased the Brentwood, California mansion belonging to Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen. According to the Los Angeles Times, the Beats co-founder spent $40 million on the four-acre estate.

The five-bedroom home was originally listed for $50 million. Brady and Bundchen purchased the property in 2009 and built the 14,000-square-foot mansion from scratch.

Highlights include a moat, sweeping terraces, and an infinity pool with views of the Pacific Ocean.

Apple announced late last month that it would buy Dr. Dre's company, Beats Electronics, for $3 billion. He's worth a reported $800 million after the deal.

While news of Dre buying the mansion broke before the Apple-Beats deal became official, we can't help but think the new pad was a celebratory purchase.

Maleficent: If Only She Were Allowed to Be Bad

Maleficent is based on Sleeping Beauty. Sleeping Beauty is literally hundreds of years old. Yet here is a spoiler alert: this post will discuss the plot of Maleficent in great detail. You’ve been warned.
Of all the villains re-imagined and popularized by Disney, Maleficent might just be the most fearsome of the pack. She has none of Gaston’s goofiness or Captain Hook’s insecurity; she has powers beyond what Cinderella’s stepmother could ever imagine. She revels in wickedness, basks in cruelty. She’s petty and violent and bitter. She can hold a grudge like a toddler holds a teddy bear: with all her might, close to her heart.

Maleficent is the stuff nightmares are made of. She is fury in human form.
At least, Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty is. Maleficent in Maleficent? Not so much.
This is Maleficent‘s fatal flaw: If you’re going to make a movie about one of the most legitimately terrifying Disney villains of all time, you’ve got to keep the “terrifying” and “villain” in there somewhere, instead of just the “Disney.”

The 'Stairway To Heaven' Lawsuit Has Been Filed, And It Is Insane


Using the "Led Zeppelin IV" typeface, and including a claim for the "Falsification of Rock N' Roll History," the heirs of songwriter Randy Craig Wolfe have finally lodged a copyright infringement lawsuit against Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and other Led Zeppelin parties over the 1971 song "Stairway to Heaven."
The complaint — 43 years in the making — was filed in Pennsylvania federal court Friday, and it's indeed a colorful one.

It tells the story of Wolfe (aka Randy California), a guitar virtuoso who was discovered by Jimi Hendrix at the age of 15 and later became the founding member of the band Spirit, which in 1968 released a self-titled album that made Billboard's Top 40 charts. Most notably on that album was a 2-minute, 37-second instrumental titled "Taurus" with a distinctive guitar line. According to the complaint, "Little did anyone know at the time, 17-year old Randy had created what would become some of the most famous guitar work in the history of music."

The Success Of 'Maleficent' Could Open Up A Villains Franchise For Disney


It won the box office over the weekend, but there’s no certainty that Maleficent will wind up with a sequel. Unlike Disney’s previous live-action retellings of its own animated classics — 101 Dalmatians and Alice in Wonderland — this movie may not earn enough in the long run to warrant bringing Angelina Jolie back as the redeemed Sleeping Beauty villainess.

The studio will instead focus on its other live-action remakes already in the pipeline, namely 2015′s Cinderella and The Jungle Book and the to-be-scheduled takes on Beauty and the Beast and, again, 101 Dalmatians. That last title will, like Maleficent, be focused on the baddie and has a tentative title of Cruella de Vil. Hopefully Glenn Close will reprise the lead role (making it another sequel to the 1996 hit), as she is currently credited as an executive producer on the project.

Tricia Helfer and Brian Van Holt join the cast of Ascension

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Cougar Town actor Brian Van Holt is boarding Syfy’s Ascension. Holt is joining the cast of the limited series space thriller, which also stars Battlestar Galactica‘s Tricia Helfer.

Ascension is about starship secretly launched from Earth in the year 1963, sending hundreds of men, women and children to populate a new world. Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, the mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.

Holt (The Bridge, Black Hawk Down) will play the ship’s captain William Denninger, who is described as “a natural leader, a military man and politician … strong-willed and confident.” He became captain of the Ascension as a result of his heroic actions during a fire that nearly destroyed the ship early in its voyage. While strong-willed and confident, he and his wife, Viondra (Helfer), have a tortured marriage.

Ascension is a six-hour drama created and written by Philip Levens (Smallville) who will serve as showrunner. Syfy plans to launch Ascension in November.


'Game of Thrones': Arya's shocked laugh explained by Maisie Williams

Fans had various theories about The Laugh. We assumed Arya was cracking up because of the increasingly tragic absurdity of her situation. But actress Maisie Williams had a different take on the scene: “I loved that,” she told EW. “That was my favorite reaction of Arya’s ever. There’s so much speculation on the Internet, whether she’s laughing at The Hound and how ridiculous he now looks because he doesn’t have a plan of action, or whether she’s laughing at the fact that she now really has no one, or whether she’s just that messed up now because she doesn’t really know how she feels inside, and just laughs and goes with it.

“When I was doing it, it was more a reaction to The Hound. This whole time he’s been giving her such a hard time. He’s so in control, and he’s this tough guy, saying he’s going to take me to my aunt in the Vale and ‘I’m going to get my money and I don’t care about you, I just want my money.’ And all of a sudden this happens, and Arya completely loves it. And through laughter, she’s saying, ‘Now what are you going to do?’ It’s fascinating to see this little girl giggling in the sunlight.”

The producers have cautiously paid tribute to Eric while weaving in hours of footage of him competing for Andi Dorfman’s attention; a tough balancing act on any show, let alone one as typically frothy as “The Bachelorette.”

Then, a new challenge came up on Monday night’s episode — Eric not only exited the series, but left in an upsetting way. As a result, “The Bachelorette” pulled a rare move: Producers scrapped the traditional rose ceremony (where Andi eliminates one or more bachelors) at the end of the episode in favor of an updated, taped interview featuring host Chris Harrison and a tearful Andi, in which she explained the circumstances of Hill’s departure and reflected on her time with him.

Kris Jenner "cried herself to sleep" after Kendall moved + her thoughts on Kylie's blue hair


Kendall Jenner is opening up about moving out of the Kardashian family household and getting her own apartment.

On this morning's episode of Live With Kelly and Michael, the 18-year-old model said mama Kris Jenner had a hard time with the move at first. "She definitely came up to me and told me she cried herself to sleep a couple of nights," Kendall dished, adding, "When it actually happened, last week I moved in and she literally did everything, like helped moving me in and stuff and she's like, ‘I got it. I got it.' And I was like, 'But this is my first place, I want to be able to do it.'"

While Kris was super hands-on with the move, Kendall says she was the one deciding when it came to decorating. "I picked out all my stuff, but she helped basically to get it all in there," she said. "I offered to help, but she wouldn't let me!"

Home is Wherever Edward Sharpe is Not, As Jade Castrinos Has Been Kicked Out of The Band...Via Email


Those attending Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros performances over the past few weeks have noticed the absence of singer Jade Castrinos. Neither the band or Castrinos had remarked about the circumstances that led to her departure until Jade posted "for seven years i sang and wrote music with edward sharpe. they voted me off of tour a week before they left, via email. lol" on her Instagram page.

The band's front man, Alex Ebert, addressed Castrinos' comment with a Facebook post that has since been deleted. Ebert's note read:

Jade has spoken out about not being on this tour. Her statement left a lot of things to the imagination. Out of respect for Jade, I will keep it that way. Only we must now explain that simply and sadly, we did not feel right doing this tour with Jade. That fact breaks my heart in ways I don't want to describe. With hope with all of ourselves that we reunite with Jade again, free-spirited, and with that daring love that is our only foundation. love for you all. Alexander Ebert

Oh man, hippie fights are brutal! Everyone sage your Up From Below vinyl and chant that the other 76 members of the band will be able to overcome this.

Brad Pitt's attacker is breaking his silence!

Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk opened up for the first time since attacking the actor at the Los Angeles premiere of "Maleficient" on May 28.

"Extra's" Mario Lopez asked Sediuk the question on everyone's mind: "What is wrong with you?"

"I don't think [there's] something wrong with me," Sediuk explained. "I am a different guy who thinks differently and has this entertainment spirit that probably people in Hollywood never experienced before. It’s something different, controversial, extraordinary and it’s hard to explain. I’m normal, at least I believe so."

The former reporter later offered an apology to the actor, saying, "I apologize for inconveniences that I created to many celebrities dealing with my style of entertainment."

"I feel sorry that I create inconveniences for Brangelina family because I knew there were no kids around, but they were at the premiere, and I kind of stole the spotlight from such an important moment," he added.

The 25-year-old pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery against Pitt and was sentenced to three years of probation and a year's worth of psychiatric counseling.

Check out the video above to see what else Sediuk said about the incident, and click "Launch Gallery" below to see more photos from the "Maleficent" premiere.


Replica of Kanye West's mustard-stained polo shirt goes on sale for $400

A replica of Kanye West’s mustard-stained shirt from his 2004 video for All Falls Down - complete with a hand-embroidered copy of his mustard stain - is being sold for $400.

Bandalu, a brand that shills pop culture-inspired one-offs, has fixed up a pink Ralph Lauren polo – a brand that sells pop culture-inspired one-offs made from vintage wares – with splotches of golden yellow hand embroidery.
The embroidery, of course, is a more polished take on the mustard stain Mr West acquired in the music video while chasing his co-star, Stacey Dash, through an airport.

Bandalu only created one of these bespoke shirts – a size medium – and is selling it through Boston-based streetwear store, Bodega.
It is available for purchase through Bodega’s website, as well as in-store.

While the polo may seem gimmicky, it does paint Mr West’s earlier work as a slow-growing classic.

The All Falls Down video represents one of Mr West’s first forays into film, fashion, and stylistic innovation – and helped establish his reputation as a visual pioneer.

Anti-Gay Activist Anita Bryant ‘Makes Me Think Of My Own Mother’ Says HLN’s Nancy DisGrace

Nancy loves Glenn Beck, so... and that "doctor", the one who said that Elliot Rodger may have gone on a shooting rampage thanks to his "homosexual impulses", is a frequent guest on Grace's show.

Almost everyone, regardless of age, probably remembers Anita Bryant for two reasons: hawking Florida orange juice in her, “it’s not just for breakfast anymore” TV commercials, and for leading a hate-filled campaign for years against gay people.

Everyone, except HLN anchor Nancy Grace.

In a strange segment discussing the recent attack on Brad Pitt, Grace saw fit to bring up the pie that was thrown in Anita Bryant’s face by an LGBT activist in 1977. That was 37 years ago, yet Grace felt it was appropriate to bring up in her reporting on Brad Pitt.

Anita Bryant, of course, is the born again Christian who in the 1970′s launched Save Our Children, a vicious anti-gay campaign that successfully repealed a Miami, Florida ordinance that banned anti-gay discrimination in areas like housing and employment. Although she admitted he knew little about LGBT people, Bryant’s claim that she trumpeted through her campaign was, “Homosexuals cannot reproduce – so they must recruit. And to freshen their ranks, they must recruit the youth of America.”

Exclusive: Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden Go Public With PDA!


Cameron Diaz made her relationship status official when she stepped out holding hands with her new love, Benji Madden, in NYC on Tuesday. The couple walked side by side down the street while smiling and carrying coffee. Rumors of a new romance for Cameron began after she hit the gym with the Good Charlotte guitarist (who is also Nicole Richie's brother-in-law) in early May. After their gym date, they both attended an A-list book party with Nicole, Joel Madden, and Gwyneth Paltrow. According to a source, Benji is "madly in love with Cameron, but she wants to take it slow — he isn't her usual type." The source added, "He has dated a lot of Nicole's friends in the past, but Nicole really wants this one to work." One thing's for sure, Benji definitely seems to have a type: his previous girlfriends include famous blondes like Paris Hilton, Holly Madison, and Australian starlet Sophie Monk, and he was recently linked to Miley Cyrus. Keep reading to see all the photos of Cameron and Benji's sweet street PDA, and check out more new celebrity couples that have found love this season.

X-Men: Apocalypse may have scuppered plans for X-Force Movie

Fox is pressing ahead with X-Men: Apocalypse for 2016 - but does that mean the X-Force movie is less likely to happen?

With X-Men: Days Of Future Past notching up record box office for the X-Men movie franchise, 20th Century Fox is understandably wanting to capitalise on its success by pushing ahead with more films. Thus, we're getting a new Wolverine sequel, a Gambit standalone film, and before both of those, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Apocalypse is set to mainly feature the First Class cast, so it'll be led by James McAvoy. But Fox's decision to push ahead so soon with the film (it's due in summer 2016) may have damaged the chances of the mooted X-Force movie making it to the big screen.

X-Force was created by Rob Liefeld, and it had been revealed last year that a film project was in development, with Kick-Ass 2's Jeff Wadlow directing. But as Liefeld noted over Twitter, "Everything changed when X-Men Apocalypse was announced". So, will there still be an X-Force movie? "Coin toss, I'd wager", Liefeld posted. He also noted that "I have no idea if Cable will appear in future X-Men films. Hard to believe he won't appear in Apocalypse but I don't expect it".
