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?

Tori Spelling: Hospitalized, Quarantined Due to Mysterious Illness

Tori Spelling was rushed to an LA hospital over the weekend after displaying a wide array of worrisome symptoms.

Sources say Spelling was coughing uncontrollably and having difficulty breathing. She was reportedly running a high fever which caused hospital staff to quarantine the reality star.

As troubling as all that sounds, there are two important facts that make Tori’s make condition somewhat less dire:

1. Despite rumors to the contrary Tori is not pregnant, and 2. Tori does not have Ebola, which is something that her publicist actually felt the need to mention. 

Obviously, Tori is very sick, but insiders say it’s most likely a bad case of the flu. She’s expected to make a full recovery within the next week, and she was quarantined merely out of an “abundance of caution.”

Most likely, Tori will be released from the hospital later today, and she’ll probably have to respond to accusations that she made the whole thing up to drum up ratings for her reality show.

After all, there’s evidence to suggest Tori faked Dean McDermott’s affair with Emily Goodhand just to make her life more compelling to television audiences.

Also, back in April, Tori was accused of faking a hospital stay for the sake of her Lifetime series. Even so, we’re gonna give her the benefit of the doubt and assume that this time around she’s legitimately ill. 

In any event, we sincerely hope she’s not pretending, because faking a viral infection at a time when millions of Americans are terrified of an epidemic would be a new low that we never thought Tori capable of.

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

Kristen Bell’s 18 mo daughter uses sign language ‘she’s really good at it’

"The Judge" - Los Angeles Premiere
Kristen Bell is pregnant with her second child with husband Dax Shephard. The couple already has daughter Lincoln, 18 months, and is expecting a second child. (I assume Kristen is due around Christmas because she announced in June.) In a new interview with People, Kristen talked about her easy pregnancy and about how her daughter, Lincoln, is a champ with sign language.

“[She can say] a lot of two-syllable words, but she signs mostly because she’s really good at it,” the actress told PEOPLE at This Party Saves Lives event hosted by her company, This Bar Saves Lives, on Thursday night.

She adds, “People recommend doing signs because the baby can communicate with you and say, ‘I want an apple’ or ‘Look at the black dog,’ and you can actually form sentences.”

While Lincoln works on her signing skills, Bell, 34, and husband Dax Shepard, 39, are preparing for the upcoming arrival of their second child. The actress says her pregnancy has fortunately been a breeze — just like her first.

“Thank my lucky stars, it’s been a virtually identical pregnancy,” she shares. “Pregnancy can be really hard for women, and I’m lucky that I’m not really symptomatic. I’m okay with being on my feet and I’m lucky that my body feels really good.”

Her secret to a feel-good pregnancy? Yoga.

“I’ve found pre-natal yoga to be really unbelievably therapeutic,” she explains. “The days that I do it — even I find in my mental attitude — I’m so much happier. All pregnancy really does is contract your body in these weird ways, so that’s one thing I’ve tried to commit to.”

And while she typically maintains a healthy lifestyle, the mom-to-be has been known to occasionally indulge in what she loves most: snacks.

“I suppose I give in to more cravings because I eat pretty healthy normally, but I’ll give into a lot more snack food and potato chips here and there because why not,” Bell says.

Fortunately, the family has found a fall favorite that has plenty of flavor without the added sugar.

“The whole family is really into organic honey crisp apples in the fall — I know that sounds weirdly specific,” Bell shares. “We try to stay away from sugar and when you haven’t had a ton of sugar in a while, having an organic honey crisp apple feels like you’re having a Snickers bar.”

[From People]

I taught my son sign language and I remember him using basic signs for things back when he was about one. (That’s when he first “got it”) He would use the signs for simple things like bird, dog, eat or drink. It wasn’t a big deal and he didn’t graduate to full sentences, we encouraged him to speak more than sign. It can be great for a child’s development to learn how to sign.

Some commenters on People are trashing Kristen for trying to protect her daughter’s privacy on one hand (by not allowing paparazzi to photograph her) yet telling personal stories about her. I disagree that there’s disconnect between those two topics. Celebrities can talk about their children and not want them to be recognized. It makes sense that Kristen and Dax want to protect their daughter.

Also, that’s nice that she’s working with This Bar Saves Lives. It’s a snack company that donates a pack of food to children in the third world for every bar that’s purchased. I watched their concept video and it really got me.

Kaiser pointed me to this cute commercial for Samsung that Kristen did with Dax. It’s very cute and well done, but it doesn’t make me want a Samsung. I pretty much do the same thing daily with iPads.

Lynda Bellingham Dies; English Actress Was 66

Lynda Bellingham, a beloved English actress best known for roles in Loose Women and All Creatures Great And Small, has died at the age of 66.

She was first diagnosed with colon cancer in July 2013, after which the disease spread to her lungs and liver. She eventually succumbed to the disease.

In August 2014, Lynda decided to cease treatment for her cancer in order to “limit the suffering her family would have to endure,” according to reports.

Lynda Bellingham

In a statement, Lynda’s agent Sue Latimer confirmed her passing, saying, “Lynda died peacefully in her husband’s arms yesterday at a London hospital.

“Her family would like to thank the nurses and staff for their tremendous care and support. Actor, writer and presenter … to the end Lynda was a consummate professional.”

In 1948, Lynda was given up for adoption when she was just four months old after her mother’s strict, religious family disapproved of her being born out of wedlock.

Adopted from Canada by Donald and Ruth Bellingham from Buckinghamshire, UK, Lynda made her acting debut in the 1970s in the UK soap General Hospital.

Along with Loose Women, another prominent role of Lynda’s included her part as The Inquisitor in the 1986 Doctor Who serial The Trial Of A Time Lord.

She also made a notable reality show appearance, starring in Strictly Come Dancing (the original Dancing With The Stars) in its seventh season.

Lynda is survived by her husband, Michael Pattermore, and two children.

Kate Hudson & Goldie Hawn Wear Pink Proud For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

kate hudson and goldie hawn instagramHave you heard much about October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Normally I hear a lot about wearing pink and see the pink ribbons, but this year… I haven’t heard a peep before this. What’s going on? Well, Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn haven’t forgotten! RELATED: Kate Hudson makes it clear: she does NOT have an eating disorder.

Kate posted this pic of herself, her mother and some friend all wearing pink streaks in their hair on Instagram.

Jena Malone spotted as Robin on ‘Batman vs. Superman’ set: good pick?

Jena Malone

Here’s a photo of Jena Malone at last week’s NYC premiere of St. Vincent. She’s sporting red locks, a Valentino dress and Tamara Mellon boots that are a bit matchy matchy. The boots look a little superhero-ish, right? Well, there could be a theme at work. Jenna is rumored to be playing Carrie Kelly/Robin in the new Batman v. Superman movie. More than rumored, actually. Let’s look at the evidence. Jenna recently Instagrammed a photo of her hair, which was newly died a fiery red.

Jena Malone

Another clue: Director Zack Snyder previously worked with Jenna in Sucker Punch. Aannd Variety reports thatthe character of Robin is now female.” They point towards a local Detroit news station, which has spoken with one of the Batman v. Superman extras. That extra (who may be the dumbest person ever) broke a nondislosure agreement to reveal that Jena is on set and playing Robin. Warner Bros. declined to comment.

This rumor is probably true, which makes Jena Malone the new Robin to Ben Affleck’s Batman. What do you think? I believe this news, but the release of this info is sketchy. The extra risked a $5 million fine for spilling top-secret tidbits to the media. Jena is a master of releasing her own casting rumors to test the public’s interest. She’s really good at doing that. It worked to land the coveted role of Johanna Mason in Catching Fire. Turns out she was damn good in the role, but she played PR games to get there.

Anyway. Jena Malone joins Batfleck, Gal Gadot (as Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (as Aquaman), and that Jesse Eisenberg guy (as Lex Luthor). Nice work. Jena is a talented actress, and maybe this will keep her from singing racist songs for a couple of years. Thumbs up, Zack Snyder.

Blake Lively’s alleged cravings: ‘organic pumpkin ice cream & small-batch pickles’

FFN_Lively_Blake_TEACH_101714_51561199

Here are some photos of Blake Lively out and about in NYC on Friday. She stopped by Giggle, which I guess is some sort of baby-accoutrement shop, and she signed up for their baby registry. Crap, we have to buy her baby stuff for her?! Damn it, Blake! She also checked out Boffi, a “high end bath and kitchen design store,” according to Fame/Flynet. She tried out a new bathtub. As for her shopping outfit… well, it’s not my jam but whatever she wants. That coat is really loud and her skirt is really short. While on the red carpet on Thursday night, Blake already joked: “I’m gonna amp up my style by wearing things that are stretchier.” Because she’s knocked up, get it? There’s also this funny (but probably not true) story about Blake’s cravings:

It seems those insatiable midnight cravings are getting the better of pregnant Blake Lively, who sends Ryan Reynolds out to get her PUMPKIN ice cream at midnight. The expectant actress has reportedly been keeping her hubby busy with endless requests for bizarre food.

They include hand-churned pumpkin-flavoured ice cream and pickles. Gross. A source told Heat magazine: “She sends Ryan out in the middle of the night for organic hand-churched pumpkin-flavoured ice cream and small-batch pickles. He barely has five hours’ sleep and even when he gets in bed, she asks for hour-long foot and neck massages.”

[From The Mirror]

If I found a dude willing to give hour-long neck massages, I would lock that sh-t down so fast it would make your head spin. It could be the grossest guy in the world, the dong situation could be completely tragic, but if there were hour-long neck rubs involved, I would force him into a marriage of convenience/neck-rubs. As for the organic, hand-churned pumpkin ice cream and “small batch pickles”… that sounds true but it probably isn’t. Who knows though? I could totally see Blake becoming one of those donut-shaming pregnant women. She seems like the type to side-eye anyone who would dare to eat Vlasic Pickles straight from the jar.

Meanwhile, CB sent me Blake’s latest word salad from Preserve. You can read it here and if you can explain what the hell Blake is talking about, God bless you. I think she’s trying to address the “Allure of Antebellum” situation. I think she’s trying to say that she knows she’s not perfect and she’s doing the best she can and that Preserve is about all of us so if we criticize her for being ignorant, we’re really criticizing ourselves. You know what I think is really interesting? Every time Blake sits down and writes one of her stupid word salads, more people lose respect for her. She used to be widely admired for brilliantly playing the Hollywood game. Now we’re like “Eh, she’s kind of dumb, right?”

Jennifer Lawrence on Nude Photo Leak: At Least I’m Not a Hermaphrodite!

Recently, Jennifer Lawrence spoke with Vanity Fair about the nude photo leak that eventually impacted hundreds of young female celebs.

Jennifer Lawrence Vanity Fair Cover Photo

The first excerpts of her interview were released last week, and Lawrence demonstrated the sort of class and self-deprecating humor that we’ve come to expect from one of Hollywood’s most talented actresses.

She defended her right to privacy, spoke honestly about the shame and fear she experienced in the wake of the scandal, and called out the hackers responsible with eloquent indignation.

She was praised for her poise and bravery, and she helped put a human face on a crime in which millions were complicit.

A new portion of the interview that went public today, however, contains an offensive gaffe that has many in the LGBT community calling for an apology.

“At least I’m not a hermaphrodite,” Lawrence told the iconic lifestyle mag. “I could have been outed – Jennifer Lawrence, hermaphrodite.”

While Lawrence clearly meant for the comment to be taken as a joke, it’s struck many fans as insultingly transphobic.

Some believe Lawrence’s comment implies that being “outed” as a “hermaphrodite” would have been a worst-case scenario.

Given the struggles faced by transgender actresses like Laverne Cox, it’s not hard to see why Jennifer’s comments have been taken as hopelessly insensitive and derogatory to transgender and intersex individuals.

Lawrence has received support from countless fans and fellow celebs throughout her recent ordeal, and now many of her most ardent admirers find themselves hoping that she’ll return the favor by offering encouragement and a sincere apology to a segment of the population that faces daily discrimination.

Hefe Wine: Iggy Azalea Gave Me Chlamydia!

Just days after settling her ugly feud with Snoop Dogg, Iggy Azalea finds herself at the center of another vicious war of words – this one with a little-known rapper named Hefe Wine.

It's Iggy Azalea!

You may recall that Wine demanded a divorce from Iggy last week, thus overlooking minor details such as the fact that they were never married.

Wine claimed that he and Azalea were common law married, a fact that only occurred to him after his ex became rich and famous.

Other classy moves by Mr. Wine include threatening to leak an Iggy Azalea sex tape if the rapper didn’t make with the cash. And they say chivalry is dead!

Finally fed up with the BS, Iggy went on a Twitter tirade today accusing Hef not only of lying to the court as part of his desperate cash-grab, but also of violently abusing the mother of his child:

“The thing that I find awfully sad about this whole story is that the mother of this man’s 3 year old child is in court right now,” Iggy tweeted. [She's] saying he stalked, headbutted, and tried to strangle her after their 7 year relationship ended.”

“Why is her truth being overlooked in favor of sensationalism? It makes me so sad and my heart goes out to Annette Buitrago.”

Ever the elegant wordsmith and moral compass of a world that’s lost its way, Hefe replied, “Its good you are comfortable with the fact you gave me chlamydia.”

So yeah, Hefe Wine is pretty much the worst.

Her Stage Name Has History


She took the name “Iggy Azalea” from her childhood dog and the street she grew up on.
