Dean McDermott: I’m Not a Monster (or the First Guy to Ever Cheat on His Wife)!

Dean McDermott says he isn’t proud of cheating on Tori Spelling, but hey, he’s also not the first guy to ever pull such a move, so give him a break, will ya?

In an interview with ET Canada, the True Tori star and King of Excuses feels bad for himself and manages to make everything about himself, as usual:

Dean and Tori

“When you’re at the checkout and you look over and you see one of these magazines and it’s like, ‘Dean McDermott’s a monster,’ I’m like, ‘No, I’m not a monster.'”

“I’m a human being and I messed up. I messed up and I’m owning up to it and I’m getting help for it. But to label me a monster or evil is very hurtful.”

“You know, I’m not the first person to ever cheat on his wife.”

That’s a great point, Dean. Why didn’t we think of that?!

If you watch True Tori online, you know the entire premise is Dean messing around with Emily Goodhand last winter while on a business trip to Canada.

He got busted, and a lot of people thought the entire charade was fake, but at the very least, Tori Spelling decided to make lemonade out of Dean’s lemons.

Two things we can guarantee you are completely real:

  • Tori Spelling is so obsessed by fame, appearances and so on that it is literally killing her (she was just hospitalized for a nervous breakdown).
  • Dean is a pathetic, unstable, alcoholic, self-absorbed, enabler who thinks only of his own “needs” and manipulates people to get them.

Not a monster, though. Let’s make that clear okay?

The parents of poor Liam, 7, Stella, 6, Hattie, 3, and Finn, 2, return for a new episode next week. What’s to come on True Tori Season 2 Episode 2?

Sounds like pretty much a lot more of the same.

Dean says of the vacation they recently took, “I thought we’d be able to bring that feeling back and maybe start working on simplifying our lives here.”

“But a lot of the emotional stuff changed when we came back to the house,” he adds. “I was surprised and I was really hoping that we could carry it over.”

“It didn’t go that way, so it did surprise me.”

Considering that Dean just goes through the motions of marriage until someone or something else comes along that pleases Dean, it does not surprise us.

As for wife Spelling being quarantined?

“Everything is okay. All the tabloids are reading Ebola and it’s not,” McDermott said of her health scare. “The show we’re shooting is obviously very emotional.”

“It’s six days a week. It finally caught up with her and took its toll, so she has bronchitis, sinusitis, and pneumonia and she’s getting great care at the hospital.”

Here’s hoping Tori’s health improves and that these two characters eventually find what they’re after … whatever that is. We’re not sure even they know.

Tori and Dean Moment


Tori and Dean share a touching moment. So much to say about these two.

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.

Lena Dunham Goes Green, Dyes Hair Again

Lena Dunham has gone green.

No, the Girls star isn’t doing anything noteworthy regarding the environment, at least not as far as we know.

But the actress/producer/writer has changed up her hair color once again, ditching her platinum blonde bowl cut for… some kind of green creation.

Lena Dunham with Green Hair

“Newly minted for the Canadian leg of the tour thanks to @tanneyb @rheannewhite,” Dunham wrote on Instagram along with this photo, giving a shout-out to Rheanne White Salon colorist Tanner Bassett.

Many fans believed Dunham was donning a wig when she went blonde in August, telling E! News not long after her last hair color dye job:

“A paparazzo followed me through LAX the other day asking me how I felt about the ‘speculation’ that my hair is a wig. It was like the biggest scandal I’ve ever been embroiled in.”

That’s far from true, of course,

Lena Dunham is known for being outspoken. Recently, for example, she went off on the celebrity naked photo hacking scandal, referring to the incident as a sex crime and castigating anyone who viewed pictures of Kate Upton nude or other stars in the buff.

We can’t tell people, can you? Does Lena Dunham have a new hair color?

Celeb Blind Item Who’s Struggling With Serious Anxiety?

Blind-Folded-Man17It’s surprising someone who’s achieved such as high level of success struggles so much with anxiety. Stranger things have happened, though. Read the goss after the break.

She calls it stage fright. There is some of that to be sure because she can freeze in front of a camera. It is one reason she hates doing awards shows or anything requiring her to read a teleprompter. She is surprisingly enough ok on talk shows because she is not required to say anything, she only has to respond. Getting her to the talk show is an entirely different matter. It takes her hours. Once she finally gets there and gets inside she can fake it enough and use enough mind tricks to make it through the ordeal, but when she leaves, she becomes a sweaty, exhausted mess and drinks herself to sleep. She is an actress. She used to be A+ list. Rarefied air that she had. Academy Award winner/nominee. For a time, she was the number one choice for almost every movie role available. She could still be that choice and she still has A list name recognition, but she has suffered the past five or six years with actually leaving her own house. It is rare she can manage and when she does it is usually with her boyfriend by her side. She prefers to be alone with him, or just alone is fine with her too. She has an assistant to go shopping for her and do the day to day things so she doesn’t have to leave the house. Meetings with her manager or agents or anyone else is by phone or they come to her place. She has dated some of the biggest names in Hollywood. All this used to be managed more effectively. There is talk that her boyfriend likes to have her under his control and maybe had made things worse for his benefit. One thing that has surfaced is that she has a tough time filming anything because of the crowds and the stage fright. She has finally been convinced to give it another try, but it might fizzle like her last two projects when she couldn’t even make it to the set.

Any guesses? Take a look at the reveal by clicking on “Crazy Days and Nights” below.

Nick Loeb claims he split with Sofia Vergara because she was too career-focused

wenn21846043

Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb broke up months ago. Sofia is now with Joe Manganiello, which… I mean, I guess I get that. I can’t imagine that Joe is very demanding emotionally, you know? He’s just sort of there, like a big slab of beefcake. Sofia is probably happy to be with someone unchallenging. But her ex, Nick Loeb, still has feelings. In an interview last month, Nick threw major shade at Sofia, saying that he “likes a girl to dress a little classier” and that Sofia’s vavavoom wasn’t his thing. Well, Nick is still giving interviews about Sofia. And he’s still butthurt.

When Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb split in late May, it was assumed they were geographically incompatible (she lives in Los Angeles while he calls New York City home). But the publicity man explained to InTouch this week that while he wanted a family, the Colombian beauty (who already has a 22-year-old son) was more interested in fame.

‘She’s focused on her career,’ the 39-year-old New Yorker said. ‘The most important thing for me is to get married and have kids.’

The Loeb’s Crunch founder added, ‘I completely understand. She’s at the height of her career, and, as she says all the time, she’s taking advantage of her 15 minutes of fame because who knows how long that will last.’

At age 42, Vergara is at the height of her career with a hit TV series (Modern Family) and starring roles in movies (such as Fading Gigolo). The cover girl also has numerous endorsement deals and her own perfume, which launched in September.

Loeb added her new beau Joe Manganiello, 37, is a smarter choice for the actress. ‘They are much better suited for each other,’ he offered.

The heir to the Loeb fortune did not clear up whether he was dating Sharon Stone, 56, or not. The two were caught getting cozy in New York City earlier this month, according to UsWeekly. Stone and Vergara worked together on Fading Gigolo, which was released in 2013.

[From The Daily Mail]

Er… is this shade-throwing? I think it is. I think it’s patronizing to say something like “of course she wants to focus on her career, she’s getting older and she’s not going to be famous for much longer.” I’ve always liked that about Sofia though – she’s smart about her endorsements and all of her business deals. And why not? Why should that be a bad thing? And yes, she already did the mom thing. Now it’s her time. As for Nick possibly dating Sharon Stone… er, nothing says “I want to settle down and have babies” like canoodling a 50-something cougar.

Oh, and Nick and Sofia were at The Angel Ball this week, but not together. Sofia was doing an interview with Extra when Nick came up behind her and whispered something in her ear. Sofia’s reaction is… interesting. People have described this as “awkward” but to my eye, Nick is trying to say hello to her and Sofia gives him a bitchy look and goes back to her interview in a split second. Sassy!

Kristen Stewart to Take Hiatus from Acting

Kristen Stewart recently told Vanity Fair that folks don’t know dick sh-t about her personal life.

But the former Twilight Saga star has now given us a look inside her professional life, telling USA Today in a new interview that she needs a break.

Kristen Stewart in NYC

“I’m taking some time off because I’ve been working for two years,” the 24-year-old said. “I’m an actor and that’s my art form, and because I started that so young, I’ve always felt intimidated and insufficient when I think about other forms of art I want to create,” she explained.”

Stewart has been starring in films pretty much non-stop since she was 14 years old. Her first major role was opposite Jodie Foster in Panic Room.

“I’m going to take so much time off. I’m going to buy a live-work space in downtown L.A. and I’m going to make some [stuff] with my hands. Literally, I made that decision a few weeks ago,” Stewart continued.

“I’m making a short film. I’m making a bunch of stuff. I don’t know how I’ll put it out. But I’m not going to hold it so preciously close to me. I write all the time.”

The ex-girlfriend of Robert Pattinson says she embraces “hard work,” but she could go for some alone time right about now.

“I’m somewhat OK with the isolation. At times I realize, that’s so not normal. It’s weird but it gives me the opportunity to do what I love.”

Happy Birthday, Kristen Stewart!


Hooray for Kristen Stewart! The actress is now 24 years old!

Keanu Reeves: ‘I haven’t been getting many offers from the studios… it sucks’

wenn21854183

Here are some photos of Keanu Reeves at last night’s Hollywood screening of his new film, John Wick. I have to say… I think the photographers on the red carpet were in love with him. There are about a million close-up shots of just Keanu’s 50-year-old vampire face. Enjoy! Keanu is looking particularly great these days, so much so that any “would you hit it?” type of question is answered with a resounding “YES!” from every corner of the globe. But for whatever reason, Keanu isn’t getting major studio love these days. And I don’t know why? He has a stellar reputation for being a lovely guy to cast and crew alike. He works hard. He’s constantly underestimated. Keanu talked a little bit about studio films versus indies in a new interview with Indie Wire:

Indie Wire: You aren’t doing many studio movies these days. “John Wick” was produced independently and acquired later by Lionsgate. Do you have a preference for indies over studio projects?
Keanu:
Not really. The last studio movie I did was “47 Ronin,” but before that it had been a long time — probably “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” So I haven’t been getting many offers from the studios.

IW: Are you OK with that?
Keanu:
No, it sucks, but it’s just the way it is. You can have positive and negative experiences, but what I like about studios are the resources and the worlds that they can create. Obviously, a lot of good filmmakers work on studio movies. Even when I was working on studio movies more often, I was always doing independent movies. So for me, that was just not happening, but I want to keep going, making things, and telling stories. I want to be able to do that — to be an actor, a director, to produce, you know? If we’re going to do a delineation between studio and independent [films], I was always hoping to do both.

[From Indie Wire]

Part of me thinks that it’s interesting sociologically that Keanu is facing the same dilemma that many over-40 actresses face: he’s a movie star from a different era of Hollywood filmmaking and studios don’t want to pay a 50-year-old to be the lead anymore. He’s aged out of the current teenage-boy-audience-driven filmmaking. And unlike the other aging action stars – Bruce Willis, Arnold, Jason Statham, Vin Diesel, etc – Keanu doesn’t have a major franchise to endlessly milk with neverending sequels. Huh. Keanu has more in common with Diane Lane than Bruce Willis.

Crusty love never dies: Meg Ryan & John Mellencamp are back together!

FFN_Ryan_Mellencamp_METAND_101413_51233027

Back in August, Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp confirmed that they had split up after more than three-and-a-half years together. While I believe Mellencamp left his wife for Meg back in the day, I sort of liked John and Meg together. They made some kind of crazy-wonderful sense. They had a crusty love. Just last week, I actually got an email from someone wanting a Crusty Love Update, so here you go: Crusty Love 4 Eva!!!! They’re back together. YAY!

Things aren’t tumblin’ and crumblin’ down after all for John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan. After apparently breaking off their three-year relationship in late August, Ryan, 52 and Mellencamp, 63, are rekindling their romance.

“They are back together and it’s brand new,” a source close to Mellencamp tells PEOPLE. “They’re really happy about it.”

The pair were seen looking comfortable and relaxed together in New York City on Oct. 15 as they strolled through Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood. The news of their reunion isn’t completely out of the blue – the Indiana-based musician recently made it clear that he still carries a torch for the When Harry Met Sally actress.

“She’s an angel sent to me, and I’m very happy,” he told the Today show on Sept. 25. “And, you know, nothing’s over ’til it’s over.”

Just a day later, the rocker told the Associated Press: “I’m very happy with the time I’ve spent with Meg Ryan. She’s a beautiful girl, and I know that I will never, ever, ever be with a funnier girl than her. Not gonna happen. I’m grateful for the three and a half years we’ve been together.”

“Nothing’s over,” he said when asked if they might reunite. “I never say ‘die’ for anything. Do you ever quit on anything?”

The “Jack and Diane” crooner also mentioned that Ryan had taken a photograph that appeared on the musician’s new album, Plain Spoken. Another Mellencamp insider says the couple faced difficulties such as the distance between his home base in Indiana, and hers in New York City. “There were disagreements over style of life and logistical problems which clouded their relationship,” the insider says. “But there is no doubt that he cares for her a great deal.”

“They are a great couple,” adds the Mellencamp source. “All their friends were hoping it would work out.”

[From People]

Well, I don’t see how getting back together after a few months solves the long-term problems of living in two different states, but sure. Maybe they’ve agreed to compromise after taking a breather. If these two were younger and in the first flush of it, I might have suggested that there were disagreements about whether they should marry. But I doubt it. I truly think Meg couldn’t give a damn if she ever remarries. And Mellencamp’s probably a little gun-shy about marriage these days too (didn’t his ex take him to the cleaners?). Anyway… Crusty Love Never Dies!!!

Lena Dunham On Losing Her Virginity And Not Getting Her 90210 Moment

lenadunham3

Lena Dunham stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show today to promote her new biography “Not That Kind of Girl.”  The actress and author shared a few snippets from her book, including bits about celibacy and losing her viriginity in college being a little bit of a let down!

The “Girls” star decided at age 9 that she wanted to be celibate until after high school.  She wrote her promise to herself on a piece of paper and ate it.  “Because that’s how I thought you officially sealed contracts.  I thought that’s basically what adults did if they were buying real estate, getting a divorce, you eat the paper.” 
Lena then thought her will power wouldn’t be that strong and wrote up a contract and asked her mom to sign it.  Her mom refused, saying that Lena might not be able to stick to that kind of a promise and didn’t want her to be disappointed in herself.  “My mom was like ‘you just never know what’s gonna happen. I don’t want you to sign a contract you can’t keep.   So, I’m not gonna sign the contract.’ I think it was very enlightened of her.  And it turns out I didn’t need a contract.”

Lena kept her virginity until college and shared that she had a HARD TIME finding someone to help her lose it when she finally decided she was ready.  “I think I thought that it was gonna be pretty easy to find a guy who was interested in divesting me of this. It turned out to be a real wild goose chase.”   She shares the story of her attempts to lose it in her book.

Lena confesses that she had high hopes for the big event, but it was NOTHING like she saw on TV.  “And when it finally happened, I was comparing it to 90210 David and Donna.  Flower petals, candles.  I did not have my Donna and David moment.”  She laughed, “I remember thinking I’d wake up and look in the mirror and have these puffy lips and this really long hair.  I thought there was going to be some magical transformation.”

Have you picked up a copy of Lena’s new book yet?  Are you planning to check it out?
