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.

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!

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?

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.

Tori Spelling Skinny Photo

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 Moment


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.

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.
