Are George & Amal Clooney hosting a ‘second wedding’ party this weekend?

wenn21775014

For the past week, George Clooney has been separated from his bride by thousands of miles. He was in Canada working on reshoots for Tomorrowland and then he was photographed in LA, wearing a tequila t-shit and visiting a chiropractor. Of course, Amal and George Clooney are adults with competing careers and schedules, so it’s not a code-red emergency that they’ve been apart for more than a week during the first month of their marriage. I tend to think this was the arrangement all along – Amal makes George look more serious and he gives her a bigger international profile. As it turns out, George might be headed back to England this weekend though. UK gossips claim that George and Amal are going to host a “second wedding celebration” in Buckinghamshire.

They had one of the most lavish weddings of the year but the Clooneys are set to have one more party to celebrate their marriage. And it may well be this weekend at the Danesfield House Hotel & Spa in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, as it has reportedly being exclusively booked by Amal’s parents this weekend.

A big white marquee has been erected near the house set in 65 acres of private land, just six miles away from the Grade II listed building George and his lawyer wife have allegedly bought as their new home. The marital home is believed to be Aberlash House, a 17th-century estate that was listed on Sotheby’s International Realty in June last year for £7.5 million according to the Wall Street Journal.

Before the couple tied the knot in Venice last month, MailOnline learned that the couple were planning a party to celebrate their nuptials at Danesfield House, near where Amal grew up. The source said the couple were holding the huge bash at the end of October for family and friends, including those who were not at the London civil ceremony or the lavish Italian bash.

Danesfield House boasts an exclusive Hotel hire package which gives entire access to the luxury guest rooms, ideal for social celebrations of up to 200 guests. The manicured gardens overlook the River Thames and it’s located just 40 minutes from West London. MailOnline contacted Danesfield House for confirmation about the party but were told ‘they are unable to discuss the event this weekend.’

George is currently in Malibu, and was seen on Wednesday stepping out in a T-shirt emblazoned with the logo for his Tequila company while out in Malibu.

[From The Daily Mail]

The Express says that George and Amal will be hosting about 90 people at the Danesfield House and that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were invited. HMMMM. A source describes the second wedding celebration as “the worst kept secret in Marlow.” I wonder if the paparazzi will camp out around the venue and we’ll get another spectacular series of photo-ops and costume changes. Stay tuned!

Bethenny Frankel Jason Hoppy Doesn’t Want Bryn on ‘RHONY’

Bethenny Frankel Out And About In NYCIt’s been confirmed: Bethenny Frankel is returning to her reality TV roots for the upcoming season of ‘Real Housewives of New York.’ However, her daughter Bryn may not be returning with her. Jason Hoppy reportedly is heading to court to ask a judge to prohibit Bryn from appearing on the show. RELATED: Bethenny Frankel scolded by judge for wearing her daughter’s pajamas.

A source told Radar Online:

Jason isn’t thrilled with it because he knows Bethenny is going to get in numerous jabs about the divorce.”

Another source said:

It’s just not healthy for Bryn to be on TV at a time when her parents are getting divorced. Bethenny signed up for the show, their daughter didn’t.”

Bethenny’s lawyers reportedly will point out that this is something of a double standard on Jason’s part.

Jason had no problem with Bryn being on Bethenny’s Bravo spin-off show when they were happily married. Bethenny wouldn’t have Bryn be with her during every single shoot for Real Housewives of New York, but she is adamant that the judge allow her to be on the show.”

I can see Bethenny’s attorneys point, but I’m not sure if it will matter. Typically both custodial parents have to sign off on a minor appearing on a show: that’s how Jon Gosselin was able to shut down ‘Kate Plus 8.’ He’s against it now, but he reportedly waived his right to say if they could appear on TV or not in return for not having to pay child support. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be any ‘Kate Plus 8′ specials. Really, though, Bethenny is interesting all on her own :).

Kate Middleton The Duchess Stuns In Her LBD

The Duchess Of Cambridge Attends Action On Addiction DinnerClearly the morning sickness is getting better for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge! Here’s the former Kate Middleton on her third public engagement this week. She attended the Action on Addiction Autumn Gala Evening at L’Anima. RELATED: The Duchess makes her first public appearance since announcing her second pregnancy.

I feel redundant saying this, but again, as usual, I’m loving this dress. It’s a crochet dress by Temperley. If it hasn’t sold out yet, it will. This is a great LBD to have in your closet.

I’ve read people talking about her “tiny baby bump.” Sorry, I don’t see it- LOL. I’d never guess she was pregnant without the formal announcement. I’m not holding my breath, either, She wasn’t showing in her last pregnancy until practically her third trimester. My guess is she’s going to hide her baby bump in coat dresses, given the chilly London weather. Well, she’ll still look great ;).

Taylor Swift Hasn’t Dated in HOW Long?!

Taylor Swift is almost as famous for her relationship history as for cranking out musical hits, but says it’s quite a while since she had one of the former.

In an interview with The Sun (UK), Taylor says she hasn’t dated a man in …

Jake Gyllenhaal


Jake Gyllenhaal allegedly took Taylor Swift’s v-card, then dumped her via text. TEXT.

… EIGHTEEN MONTHS! Yes, it’s been a full year and a half!

“I get stressed when I think about getting into a relationship because I get beat up in the press whenever I go near a boy,” said the perennial chart-topper.

“So you can understand why I’m taking a bit of a break.”

Swift adds, “a relationship is not in my brain right now.”

The list of boyfriends of Taylor Swift is the stuff of legend. Harry Styles, Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Taylor Lautner and Jake Gyllenhaal, to name a few.

Still, she says too much is made of her romantic life.

“It’s been seen as a scandal when I date a boy yet dating people is a normal thing for a twenty-something to do … it’s treated as if I have some sort of problem.”

Insisting that it would take “someone pretty damn special” to lure her away from the single life, the “Shake It Off” singer is loving life these days she says.

“Staying single has been the best thing I have done. I’m not wary of getting into another relationship. I’m just protective of my independence and freedom”

“More protective than I have been before.”

“I always thought, ‘What could be better than to love someone and be loved back?’ I finally found what it is to love yourself and not need anyone to love you back.”

Taylor, who has been known to write songs about exes, is busy promoting her new 13-track album 1989, her first studio effort since 2012’s smash Red.

During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she performed album track Out of the Woods, which is widely believed to be about Harry Styles.

She hasn’t named names, but …

Bring It On


What do you have to say about cheerleaders NOW, Taylor?

“This song is about the fragility and breakable nature of some relationships … a relationship where you never feel like you’re standing on solid ground.”

“That kind of a feeling brings on excitement,” the soon-to-be 25-year-old mused, “but also extreme anxiety and kind of a frantic feeling of wondering.”

Sounds about right.

Duchess Kate in black crocheted Temperley for a London gala: pretty or bland?

FFN_FLYUK_Middleton_Kate_102314_51565875

I feel like Duchess Kate is already carrying her second pregnancy much differently than her first. When she was pregnant with Prince George, it felt like it was well into her second trimester before she started to “look pregnant” all over. But with this pregnancy, I can already see it on her face. That’s not a bad thing at all – a little extra weight all over makes her look younger, like a knocked up teenager (with an addiction to her mom’s eyeliner). This is the Kate that won William’s heart at university: the girl with an athletic, healthy-looking build.

Anyway, these are photos of Kate attending the Action on Addiction Autumn Gala in London last night. There wasn’t much advanced notice on this appearance, which is weird because Kate’s people were going overboard announcing her future schedule just a few weeks ago. And I will give her props for showing up for one of her patronages. She became a royal patron of Action on Addiction in 2012. Her work with the group is sporadic (she hasn’t done any work with them all year that I can tell), but Kate does love a gala, doesn’t she?

As for the dress and styling… it’s not the worst, not the best. The dress is Temperley. I always wish Kate wore more Temperley because Alice Temperley seems to tick off a lot of boxes for a British duchess: Temperley is young, English and female and her designs are consistently girly, feminine, lacy, frothy and yet somewhat simple. Kate seems to favor crochet, lace and anything delicate-looking. So I’m sort of mystified why she A) doesn’t wear more Temperley and B) chose this dress which is hardly representative of the bridesmaid-y dresses that Temperley usually designs.

I do like that Kate wore black though. Don’t ask me why, I don’t know. I wear a lot of black so maybe that’s why. It’s kind of a no-no for royal women to wear black unless they’re attending a funeral, although Diana broke that rule a lot. My least favorite part of this look: Kate’s hair flapping around. Pro-tip: if the event is described as a “gala,” please pull your hair back.

Eddie Cibrian is acting shady lately, doesn’t want the paparazzi following him

wenn21571369

I know many of you side-eye any and all of Star Magazine’s reporting (“reporting”), but one of the reasons I love Star specifically is because they keep reporting on LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian and they never sugar-coat it. Like, LeAnn can whine and yodel about the tabloid “lies” all day long, but Star Mag is still going to call them out. And you know what? Most of the time, I totally believe Star. Like, I think they’re probably right about LeAnn and Eddie like 75% of the time. So this week’s Star Mag story about Eddie is a treat! Apparently, Eddie has been acting shady. No surprise!

If you want to know whether a celebrity is having an affair, just look at the way he or she treats photographers. Eddie Cibrian, who has been married to LeAnn Rimes for more than three years, is normally very friendly to the pesky paparazzi, but he has suddenly gone sour in recent weeks.

Insiders say that Eddie’s change in attitude is a major red flag for not wanting to get caught doing something wrong.

“When things were great with LeAnn, Eddie would always chat and wave to the photographers outside his house. But now he’s trying to hide. He’s doing everything he can to avoid being spotted,” says a source.

Pals say LeAnn should take note from other famous husbands who also changed their demeanor. “It’s exactly the same pattern that Kendra Wilkinson’s husband Hank Baskett had right before he was caught cheating,” continues the industry mole. “Most celebrities just go about their daily lives, but cheaters watch for you. They know they have to careful.”

Indeed, as Star previously reported earlier this summer, Eddie was caught texting a mystery woman whom he was also spotted grabbing dinner and working out with. No wonder he’s on edge!

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Now, do I think that every paparazzi-wary celebrity is obviously hiding some extramarital affair? Of course not. Some celebrities just hate paparazzi. But in Eddie’s case… sure. I’ll always believe he’s cheating. I’ll always believe that he gets extra squirrelly when he’s got a side-piece in the mix. Plus, I have no idea what Eddie DOES. How does he spend his time? He’s got joint custody of the boys and he barely works. He goes shopping, I would imagine. He has to deal with LeAnn’s tantrums. And then he every now and then he goes off to meet some woman and he hopes that the photographers aren’t trailing him. Maybe that’s why LeAnn is always calling the paps? She needs their help keeping track of Eddie’s wandering eye (and other parts).

Chrissy Teigen receives death threats, quits Twitter over Ottawa shooting tweet

Chrissy Teigen

Here’s a photo of Chrissy Teigen last night at the FGI Night of Stars event in NYC. She looked gorgeous in hot pink; she won’t be tweeting about the evening after the abuse she’s suffered on Twitter. Chrissy isn’t a stranger to controversy on Twitter. She loves to troll the trolls, and she’s very skilled at throwing shade back in their faces. Is that a skill? Sure it is. Some people find Chrissy abrasive, but she’s fun to follow. She’s definitely not the typical stuck-up, showbiz kind of tweeter. She engages with people and “follows back” a lot more than other celebrities. Plus she mostly tweets mundane things instead of simply pushing a PR agenda.

Chrissy’s tenure on Twitter took a turn for the worse when she made an innocuous comment on Wednesday after the Ottawa shootings. She wasn’t commenting upon the incident itself or on Canada. Chrissy’s comment, “active shooting in Canada, or as we call it in america, wednesday,” was a remark on US gun culture. The tweet was misinterpreted by many, and the fallout has been severe. For over 24 hours, Chrissy received death threats and other abuse. Here’s an abbreviated version of what happened:

(1) Active shooting in Canada, or as we call it in america, wednesday

(2) That’s not a joke. It is a fact.

(3) Sorry you don’t understand that is a knock at america and our issues with gun control. No one is minimizing the Ottawa shooting.

(4) I’m not apologizing. If you take it wrong, that is your fault.

(5) For some reason, Canadians think I am saying they have a lot of shootings. I am not saying that. Sigh.

(6) I’ve lost faith in this world. Sorry if it comes off as being unemotional. There is just so much bad.

(7) 90% of my mentions. RT “you should probably stick to having your picture taken for a living.”

(8) And this is where @twitter needs to step their game up. RT “You f—ing c—. You’ll get yours soon enough.” RT “Wish ISIS would give Chrissy a permanent haircut.”

(9) Yikes. RT “So, how much of an stupid bitch are you?”

(10) my timeline is a nice mix of toast talk and death threats

(11) I can’t see anything through the sea of hate and anger that is now my Twitter. Seriously I can’t sift through it all.

(12) It’s gotten to the point people don’t even see he simplicity of the original tweet and have just wanted to get shaking-mad over something

(13) Amazing this isn’t punishable. RT “@f—— I hope someone murders some you love, like your f—– husband”

(14) I feel sick. Bye Twitter. Taking my talents to instagram.

[From Chrissy Teigen on Twitter]

I don’t blame Chrissy for taking a step back from Twitter. Hopefully, she hasn’t quit for good. She needs a break, and Twitter needs to take these threats seriously. They allow abuse like this to happen all the time. I’ve had friends report similar threats, and Twitter acts like it isn’t their problem until enough people report a certain user. That’s a major issue. All it takes is one crazy person to carry out a threat.

Forbes says that Twitter generates over $1 billion in ad revenue per year. They should have no problem devoting the funds to investigate abusive tweets like this. If it takes celebrities quitting Twitter to spur them into action, so be it.

Parenthood Season 6 Episode 5: The Fluid Scale of Affection

Amber started feeling a new crush and young Max received advice from Adam on how to talk to a girl at his school on last night’s Parenthood Season 6 Episode 5.

How did those developments, and the many others Thursday, play out?

In typical fashion, it was a genuine mix of uplifting and poignant tales.

Max’s crush on Dylan, one of the core stories this week, is just the latest part of a story that has played out as long as you watch Parenthood online.

How do parents reconcile their own dreams, and heartbreak, as they help raise and thus give so much of their own lives to those of their children?

Kristina and Adam’s responses to Max’s affection for Dylan is a prime example of this. He’s all for it, she’s much more reserved. Both are clearly moved.

In the end, the parents meet in the middle, urging Max to focus on his best self in a story that simultaneously manages to make you smile and almost cry.

Perhaps they should help out Crosby with this same approach.

The youngest of Zeek’s four kids is off the rails to the point where Jasmine physically locks up motorcycle so he can’t drive it around aimlessly.

Crosby is a total mess, yet the reasons why are not entirely clear.

Perhaps that realization was ironically made clear this week, as no one can quite figure this guy out. Often, this is the case in real life, but on TV?

Only on Parenthood would they attempt some of these things.

Now that Amber has decided to keep the baby, she’s going through a pretty serious transition as well, and it’s going to change the way she does everything.

Case in point? She likes a guy and doesn’t know whether or not to tell him she’s pregnant right away. Once again, Drew was the star of this storyline.

Encouraging her to be up front, then being there for her when it didn’t go well, Drew’s bond with Amber – strengthened by her pregnancy – is wonderful to watch.

Other relationships aren’t thriving as much as crumbling.

As Julia is dating Chris, she wonders how (if at all) she should integrate him into her kids’ lives, and when it does happen by happenstance, Joel is there.

Once again in typical Parenthood fashion, we have a situation where it’s impossible to truly hate, or unabashedly side with, Team Joel or Team Julia.

Isn’t that remarkably realistic in a sense?

So many things in life are not black and white. Parenthood is one of the few shows willing to give its stories the time and depth to venture into that gray area.

Amy Poehler on aging: ‘The old woman in the store window? Oh god, it’s me.’

Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler is still promoting her new book, Yes Please, at full force. Out of all the excerpts Amy has released so far, I enjoyed her sobering divorce advice from Louis CK. I wasn’t crazy about her obligatory drug stories, but that’s a small part of her book. Amy sat down with People to talk about her anti-Hollywood attitude towards aging. These aren’t excerpts, thankfully. Not that I’m opposed to more excerpts, but Amy shouldn’t give away her whole book. These are simply answers to interview questions. Amy seems very realistic and likable here:

On her lack of perfection: “In a shallow business, I just had to come to terms with being really okay with not being … symmetrical. You can spend your life trying to be [perfect], and you can tweak and nip and tuck, and then be afraid to move your face.”

Staying confident: “There’s a line between feeling healthy, strong and sexy and feeling good about yourself, and being worried about how you measure up. Some days I wake up and I’m just like, ‘All right, I’m feelin’ really good,’ and some days I loathe myself. Just like everyone else.”

Fame doesn’t make aging easier: “It’s so funny because it doesn’t matter what you do, whether you have your picture in a magazine or you don’t, there are days where you’re just feeling it and other days where you look at yourself and say, ‘Oh my god, who is that old woman in the store window? Oh my god, it’s me!’”

Her parents’ role: “My parents encouraged me, and I did not have a mother who criticized me about what I looked like or wore. She just never told me that I looked fat, and there was never a huge focus on looks — now what that led to was really terribly documented high school [years]!”

Her own kids: “They really teach you to stay in the moment, since kids don’t really care about the past or the future, and they’re not interested in hoping for what will come. They’re ‘let’s play now!’”

The positives of aging: “The older I get, I feel like the better my life has gotten. I like hard work and I don’t like pretending things are perfect. I wouldn’t give anything to be back in my 20s at all. Maybe I wouldn’t mind the amount of sleep I got then or for my stomach to be smaller, but mentally, no way.”

[From People]

Have you ever experienced that weird “Who is that old woman in the store window?” feeling that Amy describes? I’ve had the same experience with the “Who’s the bitch with the fried hair in the store window?” feeling. But I’m staring 40 in the face — it won’t be long until the reflection changes, and I dread that day. It’s so easy to think of yourself as a 25 year old because mirrors don’t reflect much change on a day-to-day basis. Looking into a store window is different because reflections can catch you by surprise. Amy is 43 and nowhere near an old woman, but her humor makes sense. She’s also succeeding in a “shallow business” (as she puts it) and coming out ahead of all the cookie cutter babes.

Hilary Swank pays veterinary bills for people who can’t afford petcare

wenn21826020
It seems like Hilary Swank has been everywhere lately after a long hiatus. All of these pictures are from this month. Hilary is co-starring in You’re Not You with Emmy Rossum and Josh Duhamel. It was out October 10th in limited release. She plays a concert pianist who gets ALS and is cared for by Rossum’s manic pixie dream girl character. (The trailer is here.) The film may do modestly when it hits VOD.

Hilary is an animal lover with a and she often brings her dog, a Beagle Terrier mix named Kai, with her when she travels. She’s shown here with Kai a LAX on October 20th. I love that little derpy face of his! She’s also an animal philanthropist. She has a charity which connects at risk youth with shelter pets. On Thanksgiving she’s going to co-host and produce a “Dog-A-Thon” urging animal lovers to adopt pets. Miranda Lambert is cohosting and the special will also feature Scarlett Johansson, Fergie, Josh Duhamel, Kesha, Kristen Bell, LeAnn Rimes and Betty White.

What’s more is that Hilary often pays people’s vet bills for them – anonymously, when they can’t afford to pay.

Hilary Swank… has made a habit of secretly paying veterinary bills for cash-strapped pet owners. “A number of vets around LA have Hilary on speed dial,” says a source, revealing that the Oscar winner will anonymously pick up the tab if someone can’t afford treatment for their injured critters. “She’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars paying vet bills. She literally saves lives weekly, without seeking any credit!”

Hilary has made it her mission to help all creatures big and small, founding The Hilaroo Foundation, which brings together at-risk youth and abandoned animals. And this Thanksgiving, the actress is set to produce and cohost The Great American Dog-A-Thon, a two hour dog rescue special, on Fox. “She truly believes that every pet deserves a chance and will do anything in her power to save their lives.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition, November 3, 2014]

That makes my cold heart melt. What a nice thing to do! I hope, though, that the vets give people who can’t afford to pay a discount and don’t just call up Hilary asking her to foot the entire bill. There should be some sort of sliding scale fee. Vet bills can be astronomically high, and they can vary wildly based on where you live and which vet you choose. It’s really not fair that some people can’t afford to save their pets and it’s the animals that suffer. Good for Hilary for doing this. I really love this story.
