Yesterday, LeAnn Rimes announced she’s in rehab – I’m sorry, a “patient treatment center.” – but not for anorexia or substance abuse because that would make sense and actually be better than the real reason: Twitter. I’m going to paraphrase this the best I can, but apparently LeAnn was constantly arguing with two women on Read More ...

Zac Efron Asks: Are We Officially Dating?!

Posted: 31 Aug 2012 01:09 PM PDT

Yes, Zefron, OF COURSE we're dating, how could you ask such a silly question?! HA!!

Our favorite former Disney Prince Zac Efron is lending his smoldering stare to new romantic comedy Are We Officially Dating?, which begins production in Manhattan this fall!

AWOD? follows three friends in NYC who make a pact to stay single and NOT fall in love, while all are actually teetering on the edge of Love's great precipice. Obviously, sexy, romantic, confusing situations ensue!

Sounds super cute!

And any excuse to see a potentially naked Zac Efron on a giant screen makes us happy in our pants all day.

Ryan Reynolds And Blake Lively Can't Hide Their Love In Venice!

Posted: 31 Aug 2012 12:40 PM PDT

One of Hollywood's hottest couples has arrived at the Venice Film Festival!

Ryan Reynolds and Gossip Girl Blake Lively were seen getting out of an SUV in the Italian city on Friday, only to hop aboard a boat to reach their final destination.

While Ryan wasn't afraid to show off that handsome head, Lively kept her hat down low to cover most of it up.

Neither is there to support a particular film, but the beautiful blond is the face of Gucci's Premiere fragrance and the fashion line is holding an event as the festival to honor women in the industry.

Have fun, guys!

Kristen Stewart's Mom Jules Files For Divorce!

Posted: 31 Aug 2012 12:39 PM PDT

Sounds like Kristen Stewart and her mom, Jules, will have something new to bond over!

Reportedly, on August 17, KStew's mom filed for DIVORCE from her dad, John, nearly a month after her daughter's scandalous cheating was uncovered!

The two had been married for 27 years, with irreconcilable differences being cited.

Supposedly, the couple had been separated since June 15, 2010 according to divorce docs, so it must not have been THAT big of a surprise to Kristen!

Of course, breakups are never easy and neither are divorces -- especially after being together for so long!

Maybe the mother-daughter duo could be each other's matchmakers??

All the single (ex) Stew ladies! Now put your hands up!

Kim Kardashian Clashes With Kris Jenner Over Kimye Spin-Off?

Posted: 31 Aug 2012 12:20 PM PDT

Could Kimye be getting their own reality show???

Maybe so, if the stars align... and Kim Kardashian and mama Kris Jenner see eye to eye!

As for the latest rumblings in the reality TV jungle, it seems there have been reports that Kim and Kanye may be getting a reality show ALL to themselves!

However, it sounds like the matriarch of the Kardashian Klan might just be getting in the way!

An insider explained:

"It's not pretty! Kim is sick and tired of Kris trying to control every aspect of her new reality show with Kanye. They don't share the same vision at all. Kim wants it be cute and sweet and Kris wants drama, drama, drama!"

No surprise there! LOLz! As for Yeezy??

It seems he just wants to stay on Kris' good side and keep Kim happy. While he's reportedly agreed to do the show, it sounds like he thinks he should remain as neutral as possible!

Supposedly, the show will shoot in London in November, to coincide with the Kardashian Kollection's launch over the pond.

The insider went on to state:

"Kris is convinced that the show will only do well if there is drama, so she wants Kim and Kanye to pretend like they are fighting over which flat to purchase in London. Kim thinks this is completely ridiculous and is not willing to put on an act for ratings."

Sounds like the ladiez should probably agree on the supposed show's angle in order for the it to get anywhere!

Though, we think it's a bit early to bet on this spin-off actually making it through to production!

Condoleezza Rice's Support Of Abortions & Gay Marriage Cost Her The Republican VP Nomination

Posted: 31 Aug 2012 12:13 PM PDT

We are extremely disappointed by former Governor Mitt Romney regarding his selection for Vice President, as new evidence suggests Condoleezza Rice's tolerance cost her a spot on the ticket.

According to her friends, she was a definite finalist and her penchant for equality worked against her.

One source admitted:

"Condi was fully vetted to become Mitt Romney's running mate... Mitt thought she would add much needed foreign policy experience to the ticket, thinks she is incredibly bright and he knew she would help with the all important female vote and African American support."

And Mitt would be right!

Left, right, middle, apolitical -- anyone familiar the former Secretary of State knows she is a brilliant thinker with a ton of foreign policy experience. She would unquestionably help gain support from female and African American demographics.

She sounds like the PERFECT candidate! So why would he pass her up for the far less revered -- though admittedly super, duper dreamy -- Congressman from Wisconsin, Paul Ryan?

The source explained:

"Mitt's advisers talked him out of it because Condi is pro-choice and she isn't willing to change her position on the controversial issue. Condi also supports same sex civil unions which again, put her at odds with Romney."

Wow. That's absurd!

A candidate with more experience, more politically savvy, and more appealing to vital demographics is eschewed because she believes in a woman's right to chose?

And believes a man or woman is entitled to marry whomever they want?

So, essentially, she wasn't selected because she wasn't bigoted!!

Meanwhile, Ryan Paul, as good-looking as he is, did his party damage the other day with an RNC speech filled with inaccuracies!

Condi, on the other hand, is renowned for her elegant and accurate public speaking!

It seems like the party chose the wrong candidate. They are shooting themselves in the foot over antiquated beliefs aimed at infringing upon the rights of others!

When will people learn? Live and let live!

Luke Perry And Jennie Garth ARE Getting It On In The Workplace!

Posted: 31 Aug 2012 11:50 AM PDT


Despite recent rumors to the contrary, Dylan and Kelly ARE back together again... as co-stars on a new sitcom, LOLz!!

Jennie Garth and Luke Parry share a relationship far more intimate and long-lasting than one centered on penetration!!

When two people fall in love they are lucky to last a few years let alone their entire lifetime.

If they make a TV show together instead?? Antennas beam that shiz into space, yo!! It bounces around FOREVER!

Garth's rep revealed the truth about the 90210 actors' secret relationship.

She explained:

"They have been spending a lot of time together recently because the two are working on developing a TV sitcom together. It will be a multi-camera half hour show, currently we have producers and writers and are meeting with networks."

We wonder if it's set in Beverly Hills? Maybe at The Peach Pit? LOLz!!

Brandi Glanville Wishes LeAnn Rimes 'All The Best' In Rehab

Posted: 31 Aug 2012 11:39 AM PDT

Brandi Glanville may think LeAnn Rimes is "just a celebrity who's too full of herself," but she's also hoping that her childrens' stepmom gets all the help she needs in rehab.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star "totally" supports her ex-husband's new wife who entered treatment on her 30th birthday "to cope with anxiety and stress."

In an official statement, she shared:

"I totally support LeAnn's decision to enter rehab -- my top priority is my children, and at the end of the day we are a family," Glanville said in an exclusive statement to Us Thursday. "LeAnn is their stepmom, and they love her. I am wishing her all the best and I hope she will find what she is looking for while in rehab."

That's nice of her to put her differences stemming from LeAnn's affair with Eddie Cibrian aside and do whats best for the kids they share custody of. And for the record, we want her to get better too!

Unfortunately, it sounds like all that anxiety and stress was much worse than we thought.

A former Twitter follower of the singer revealed that she had received an angry phone call from her back in March and now LeAnn is suing the Northern California teacher for recording the conversation and allegedly releasing it online to publicly humiliate her.

After learning of the lawsuit filed against Kimberly Smiley and her daughter Lexi on Thursday, Glanville opined that "the whole thing is just ridiculous."

Well, at least she could muster up ONE nice comment for LeAnn. Ha!

SAD NEWS: Robin Roberts' Mother Has Died

Posted: 31 Aug 2012 08:06 AM PDT

"Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts has been dealing with many battles lately, including her rare blood disease, MDS.  And now, ABC reports her ailing mother has died.


Details inside...

Robin's 88-year-old mother, Lucimarian Tolliver Roberts, died Thursday evening in Mississippi.  ABC News reports that Robin started her scheduled medical leave one day early in order to travel back home to Mississippi to tend to her mother.  So Thursday was indeed her last day for a while.

She and her sister, Sally-Ann, who is also a match for Robin and will be her bone marrow donor, did make it back in time to see their mother one last time.

Mrs. Roberts, who was the first African American to head Mississippi's Board of Education, co-wrote Robin's My Story, My Song book and accompanied Robin on the book tour.  "GMA" will be doing a tribute to Mrs. Roberts on an upcoming show as she's been a guest on the show several times.

Robin tweeted yesterday after the show:

This morning is a memory I will cherish forever. Thank you and bless you. Sally-Ann and I are on our way to be with our beloved mother. X0

She's set to return to the show soon.  Our prayers are with Robin at such a difficult time.

REALITY SHAKEUP: "American Idol" JUDGE Randy Jackson Is Officially OUT!

Posted: 31 Aug 2012 07:30 AM PDT

Another shake up just went down on "American Idol" as veteran judge Randy Jackson won't be returning to the panel. Get the deets on his new role on the show inside...



First Steven Tyler, then Jennifer Lopez and now Randy Jackson won't be returning to the "American Idol" panel. Randy's departure is just the latest in a series of shakeups on the show that will now need a fresh cast.  

One of those fresh faces will most likely be Nicki Minaj as "AI" insiders revealed that her deal is very close to being signed.  Although Mariah Carey supposedly isn't be happy to hear that, producers are hoping for a little diva controversy to boost ratings.

Sources also said the show will return to the four-judge format and producers hope to fill one of those seats with a popular country singer.  But don't expect to see Diddy or Kanye West as they're no longer in the running.

So what happens to Randy?  He's hanging around next season as a "mentor" on the show.

Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Diddy & Others REACT To Chris Lighty's DEATH

Posted: 30 Aug 2012 06:43 PM PDT

Music industry exec Chris Lighty was found dead outside his Bronx apartment this morning after an apparent suicide. Get reactions from his celebrity friends inside..........

Music industry executive and manager Chris Lighty was found dead at 11:30am Thursday morning from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. According to confirmed reports, Chris was found lying faceup with a 9-mm. pistol by his side.

Things hadn't been going so well for Chris as the NY Daily News reports he had just had a spat with his estranged wife Veronica and allegedly owed the IRS $5 million, which he paid most of after selling his apartment for $5.6 mill.  Reportedly, he still owed money for back taxes, as well as to his bank:

The shocking suicide followed a wild spat between Lighty and his 36-year-old wife, Veronica, who filed for divorce last year. Moving trucks were at the home, as the veteran music manager prepared to move out of the three-story townhouse, sources said.

Law enforcement sources said Lighty’s wife of seven years told police he was facing financial woes that include a $5 million debt to the IRS. However, the Associated Press reported that Lighty paid off most of what he owed by selling a Manhattan apartment for $5.6 million in October.

Lighty still owed more than $330,000 in state and federal taxes, the AP reported. And in April, he was sued by City National Bank for not paying them after he had overdrawn his account by $53,584.

His 17-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son were inside the W. 232nd St. home and left when the argument erupted. They were in a park nearby when Lighty, who has three other children, stepped outside and shot himself, sources said.

Here are some reactions from those who knew and loved him:

Diggy Simmons: Still in shock.. More than just my manager but my family. Love you and gonna miss you Chris. R.I.P

Chris Lighty, founder of Violator Management, has died. Details inside....

Chris Lighty, the man who's helped guide the careers of Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Q-Tip, Missy Elliott, Fantasia, Mýa, Diggy Simmons, Cormega, Ja Rule, Mobb Deep, LL Cool J, and Nas has died. He was 44.

The passing was confirmed by VIBE and Chris' close pal Jeff Robinson ‏who tweeted, "So very sad about Chris lighty..Great long time friend,fellow bronxite and peer...incredible businessman and person."

Chris, who divorced his wife Veronica last year, was rumored to have financial issues.  Strangely, Chris' last tweet was about the death of a friend as he posted, "Rest in peace to my main man The Grand Incredible Dj Scott La Rock. I am still Criminal Minded. 8/27/87."

Police found Chris around 11:30am Thursday morning with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in the backyard of his apartment at West 232nd Street in Riverdale, The Bronx.  The suicide allegedly happened after Chris had a fight with Veronica.

 We will keep you posted as the story develops.

Brandy REVEALS "Two Eleven" COVER ART + 2 Chainz's "Birthday Song" VIDEO FT. Kanye West

Posted: 30 Aug 2012 11:32 AM PDT

"Wildest Dreams" singer Brandy has revealed the cover art for her upcoming disc Two Eleven.  See the pic inside and watch 2 Chainz's video for "Birthday Song" featuring Kanye West.


Superstar actress Brandy has revealed the cover art for her highly-anticipated album TWO ELEVEN. The disc will be available in standard and deluxe editions. Set for release on October 16, 2012, the album also features her hit "Put It Down" single.

B described Two Eleven saying,It’s just an R&B album, a rhythm and blues album. No gimmicks, real R&B music.” 

And in new music videos........


2 Chainz dropped the visual for "Birthday Song" featuring Kanye West. 2 Chainz recently talked about the state of rap music with HuffPost saying,

"I think it's just the energy right now. It's to have fun again. It's time to relax and realize there are way less fortunate individuals than me. The people want to do what they do, and we should just have fun. It shouldn't be stressful. I think people finally get that, and the music goes along accordingly."


I guess "fun" is what you can call it.  Watch the video above.......  




In the "No Panties" video by R&B singer London Taylor, "Hollywood Exes" star Nicole Murphy plays a sexy cougar. When asked why she decided to be a part of the project Nicole answered “I initially thought it would be a creative way to introduce my jewelry collection. Then once I heard the song and London’s vision for the video, I fell in love!”

The video (reminiscent of a vintage Calvin Klein ad) was shot in Palm Springs and features a flawless Nicole stranded in the desert with London Taylor being her only hope for survival.

London is new to the scene and is sure to make a big smash as he plays bass, piano and guitar and has church-bred vocals to back up his music.  Watch the video above....

The Talls expand beyond "Real Housewives of Atlanta"!  NeNe Leakes was spotted out to dinner with one of her equally tall reality besties--former "Basketball Wives" star Jennifer Williams--last night in Beverly Hills.  The ladies threw on their heels and got leggy as they hit the streets.


Pics inside...

A flirty mini dress wearing Lucid Cosmetics owner, Jennifer Williams, was spotted flaunting her leg game out with the captain of Team Tall, NeNe, last night.  The twosome hit up Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills while soaking up the attention from the paparazzi cams.

Jennifer is looking gorgeous by the way, and NeNe's looking pretty fab and happy herself.

Ms. Leakes is gearing up for the premiere of her new comedy, "The New Normal," on September 11th at 8:30p on NBC.  I'll be watching because it does look pretty funny...
