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?

Jon Gosselin: Broke! Evicted From Home!

Jon Gosselin is broke and was recently evicted from his home in rural Pennsylvania after failing to pay his rent on time, according to a new report.

“It’s true,” an insider says of recent talk that Jon’s landlord booted him.

“He was evicted last week and [he's] in the process of moving out.”

Jon: Smoked

Jon Gosselin, who’d been waiting tables to pay bills, was most recently working for a credit card company, but that job didn’t work out as planned.

“It lasted a few months,” the source says. “Now, he’s broke again.”

The insider claimed that much of Gosselin’s financial woes come from making poor decisions, but wouldn’t elaborate on the specifics of what those were.

Not that it’s hard to think up a bunch off the top of your head.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, he said it was “next to nearly impossible to find work” since his TLC reality show came to an end in 2011.

TLC is bringing back Kate Plus 8, sans Jon, this winter.

You might not think Gosselin’s eviction snag affects his eight kids, since Kate Gosselin is the one who supports them anyway, but where will they stay?

Lindsay Lohan


Lindsay Lohan used to make serious bank! But she spent it all on blow and had to have her move to New York bankrolled by Oprah Winfrey.

“He can see his kids,” the source says, as per the couple’s custody agreement, but now “they can’t stay over because he has nowhere to put them.”

Gonna be rough going for Jon for awhile it sounds like.

The former TLC reality star last appeared on VH1’s Couples Therapy with his then-girlfriend of two years, Liz Jannetta … who just broke up with him.

Says the source, “She moved.”

If you watch Couples Therapy online, you can see how last season, Gosselin ripped his “narcissistic” ex-wife who “can go and f–king die” for all he cares.

Wonder if he feels the same way about Liz now.

In any case, Jon’s future plans for finding a place to live are not clear, marking the latest turn for the worse in one of the more startling falls from grace we can recall.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott


Dean McDermott cheated on Tori Spelling with Emily Goodhand. The couple then talked with a therapist about it for episode of True Tori.

Phaedra Parks Talks About Decision To Divorce Apollo Nida On ‘Ellen’

phaedra parks on ellenLast week Phaedra Parks’s rep announced that she was planning to divorce her incarcerated husband, Apollo Nida. Today Phaedra will appear on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show‘ to talk about her decision. Ellen asked some great questions, I thought. RELATED: Phaedra Parks plans to divorce Apollo Nida.

Phaedra insisted she had no idea Apollo was committing crimes.

I really didn’t. I mean, I work. I just got my fifth college degree. And so I’m pretty much an overachiever. I have two very small children. I just stopped breast-feeding three months ago. So, I didn’t have any idea this was going on until he called me and he said, ‘Hey, I’ve been arrested and I’m having this problem, but it’s not true.’ So I went out of my way to get him the best attorneys, the best investigators, and to do anything I could, because I’m an attorney myself and so I wanted him to have the best. So we could fight this together, but obviously it did not turn out like that.”

Ellen pointed out that Apollo was out on parole for another crime when they met, so didn’t that raise any red flags for her?

Well, to be honest, he had been to prison and he was a changed person. So the person I married, I thought he was changed.”

Phaedra has five college degrees and is an attorney but didn’t think anything of marrying and having children with a man who had just gotten out of prison? Apollo was paroled after his first conviction in 2009; they married shortly thereafter and had two sons (who are three and seventeen months). Well, I guess this just goes to show, we do see what we want to see. Ellen also asks her about her plans for divorce, having to raise her two sons alone, and the cheating rumors. Check out the clip below.

Shia LaBeouf Explains Past Year Of Behavior As “Existential Crisis”

shia labeouf on the ellen degeneres showSo how does Shia LaBeouf explain the past year, between his Broadway arrest to the plagiarism claims he faced to wearing a bag over his head on the red carpet declaring “I’m Not Famous Anymore.” When the ‘Fury’ star sat down with Ellen DeGeneres on her show, he explained what has been going on with the past year, including his performance piece #IAmSorry. RELATED: Shia LaBeouf was arrested in a Broadway theatre.

The performance piece, #IAmSorry, sounds like it had the potential to be genuinely scary. Hopefully security was on hand to keep anyone from actually using the whip or pliers Shia had laid out on a table in front of him while people were allowed to come in one at a time. CRAZY. You have to hear his description of it in the clip from ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ below.

Shia ultimately explains the past year as having an “existential crisis.” It seems to me like he just has a tough time handling fame. He’s had a lot of problems for years. Remember when ‘Transformers’ filming had to be halted after he got into a car accident (when he was suspected of driving drunk and seriously injured his finger)? He calls himself a “child of abandonment.” Wonder how his parents feel about that?

It sounds like his time in jail in NYC was a big wake-up call for him. He seems much more, well, “settled” here on Ellen. Take a look.

Jennifer Garner Jokes Ben Affleck Needed “A Wide Lens” For Nude ‘Gone Girl’ Scene (Video)

jennifer garner on the ellen degeneres show 2Is it just me or are Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck EVERYWHERE these days? Well, they have good reasons. Ben’s spent the last couple of weeks promoting the release of Gone Girl,’ which rose to #1 at the box office last weekend. Jen, however, also has movies coming out. Her movie ‘Men, Women and Children‘ (from director Jason Reitman) opened in limited release last weekend, but it didn’t do so well, according to Deadline. Lucky for Jennifer, it’s on to the next movie! RELATED: Jennifer Garner says she’s her kids “only hope” with Ben Affleck’s busy work schedule.

She has a bigger movie, ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,’ that’s opening this weekend, so she’s still out doing promotion. Jennifer visits ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ to chat about her new movie. It’s a family movie, but they got onto a very non-PG topic by talking about Ben’s nude scene in ‘Gone Girl.’ Jennifer told Ellen:

What I have to say is, ‘You’re welcome.’ I just try to consider myself a charitable person and I wanted to give back. You give me so much, I wanted to give something back to all of you.”

LOL! Of course she’s joking. She continued to joke when Ellen asked her if they had talked about the nude scene beforehand.

It wasn’t a discussion, it was like, ‘Hey, at work today [David] Fincher talked me into coming out of the shower.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, cool, well, I hope he had on a wide lens.’”

Watch a clip from today’s ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ below to see the exchange. It airs today!

Suki Waterhouse: ‘Actors take all the modeling jobs & magazine covers’

Suki Waterhouse

I wanted to write about Suki Waterhouse because she changed her hair color this weekend. She went from a dusty blonde to a deep brown. Her hairstylist spoke to the Mail about the double process that took her to “French brown.” That’s what the shade is called. The double process avoided a green-haired Suki. Have you heard of that problem? Sometimes if you cover blonde with brown (especially an ash tone), hair can turn green. (It happened to me in high school. The horror.) These are photos of Suki with Cara Delevigne outside of Jessie J’s concert.

Outside of Suki’s active nightlife, she’s still Bradley Cooper’s best girl and potential baby mama. I feel bad even writing “baby mama,” but that’s the vibe BCoop was putting out in his latest interview. Suki is focused on her career. She’s a budding actress and is promoting her role as “the other girl” in Love, Rosie.” Suki talked to the Guardian about the perks of dating BCoop. He’s taken her to the Oscars, Met Gala, and White House State Dinner:

Her favorite Oscars moment: “The pizza and [host] Ellen DeGeneres. I was cracking up the whole time; my cheeks actually hurt. I didn’t expect the Oscars to be that fun.”

The transition from model to actress: “I am still making the move, but I think it’s kind of natural. The way I see it, actors are taking all the modelling jobs; they are on all the magazines covers, get the best contracts and walk in the shows. I’ve acted my whole life pretty much, but then just got more into modelling. I was scared of picking it up again, because it’s such a difficult, soul-baring thing to do compared with modelling, where you just close yourself off. But it’s made me really happy. Being on set reminds me of being at summer camp.”

Have you had an ‘Oh my God, I’ve made it’ moment?
No, and I think it’s a misconception that anyone ever feels like that. Even when I’m doing well, I still have moments when I think, ‘Ugh.’ When I feel like that, I do the thing I heard Albert Einstein did: say thank you 100 times.

Her most glamorous moment: “The Met Ball was more glamorous than the Oscars. It’s quite scary, because it’s a last-minute thing, and everyone’s dresses get made for them, so you get what you’re given. But it turned out to be my favourite dress ever. It was by Burberry. I didn’t get to keep it, but it was so large, it took up half the hotel room. When I called the bellboy to take it downstairs, he refused.”

Her least glamorous moment: “Whenever I am left to my own devices with cleaning and washing. When I was filming in Atlanta this summer, my apartment was disgusting. I learned to use the washing machine, but I don’t see the point in using detergent. I stored things in my dishwasher.”

Her White House visit: “I didn’t expect to see Obama bopping to Mary J Blige. He can really dance. I got a tour of the Oval Office, which was pretty cool, especially because I love the TV show Scandal.”

Her iTunes collection: “I have a lot of Britney. We actually wanted to see her in Las Vegas, but she wasn’t playing, so we ended up seeing Celine Dion, which was a bit of a disappointment.”

Her biggest fashion faux-pas: “I am constantly faux pas-ing. I messed up at fashion week last year. I had five minutes to come home to change, and my mum was screaming at me that the taxi was waiting outside, so I just threw on the most hideous thing. I looked like I was wearing a jacket made of p-bes — and there was photographic evidence. My problem is that what I like changes from week to week. Even the stuff in my suitcase right now I don’t like any more.”

What makes her angry: “Preconceived judgments. I think we’re all guilty of it. I judge other people even though I get judged myself. It’s such a disease and gets spread so much through social media.”

What makes her laugh: “People falling off treadmills. I YouTube that all the time.”

[From The Guardian]

I need to know who the “we” is when Suki talks about wanting to see Britney in Vegas. Is she talking about Bradley Cooper? Please tell me it’s true. I want to see BCoop shimmying to “Slave 4 U.”

Suki seems disgruntled at how actors have replaced models on the covers of major fashion magazines. She can blame the disappearing supermodel. In the 1990s, models could move newsstand copy and shill for brands. Most models don’t hold that power nowadays, so mags rely on actresses to do so. Suki’s doing alright for herself without major covers. She’s the new face of Burberry. Plus, there’s the whole acting thing. Suki is 22 and a bit immature, but she’ll be fine.

Eva Mendes & Ryan Gosling reportedly welcomed a baby girl last Friday

gos1

Back in July, we heard that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling were expecting their first child. The reports were weird, mostly because Eva has been keeping a very low profile for much of this year, so much so that many outlets claimed that Eva and Ryan were already done. By the time the pregnancy was sort-of confirmed, Eva was allegedly seven months along. Well… it looks like that was about right. She and Ryan have welcomed a baby girl.

Hey girl, indeed! Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling welcomed a baby girl on Friday, Sept. 12, multiple sources confirm exclusively to Us Weekly.

Us confirmed in July that Mendes, 40, and Gosling, 33, were expecting a baby together. At the time, rumors swirled that the Urban Legends actress was already seven months along.

Earlier this year, Mendes laughed off pregnancy rumors during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “It’s so ridiculous,” she said back in February. “It all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport. You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked, right? And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it, so I always opt out.”

Mendes kept a low profile during her pregnancy, making her last red carpet appearance at a Violet Grey dinner honoring the late Elizabeth Taylor in L.A. on Feb. 26. After news broke, she went to considerable lengths to cover up her baby bump with several pieces of clothing and a large bag while leaving a parking structure in L.A. on June 10. Gosling, meanwhile, quietly stepped out to pump his own gas in L.A. on Aug. 5.

Gosling doted on Mendes as the couple prepared for their newborn’s arrival. “Ryan goes out and gets the groceries. [Eva's] been wanting pasta, and he’s cooking her meals,” a source previously told Us. “Ryan has already stepped into the role of caring father-to-be.”

[From Us Weekly]

Well, congrats to them. I can’t wait to hear the name. I bet it won’t be a flat-out insane name. My money’s on, like, Isabella Harper Gosling or something. Anyway, we’re now living in a world where Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are parents to a baby girl. Feel all the feels, Hey Girls.

Channing Tatum Faces Fears On ‘The Ellen Show’ (Video)

channing tatum on ellen degeneresOn today’s ‘The Ellen Show,’ Channing Tatum confessed a real-life fear: porcelain dolls. Of course host Ellen DeGeneres had one for him. It was exposure therapy- LOL. RELATED: Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum have dance parties with Everly.

Channing does need to overcome this fear. He has a daughter, Everly! The way luck would have it, Everly will end up LOVING porcelain dolls. Then Channing’s going to have them all over the house ;). I think he has a point, though. They do look a little freaky. That’s probably why they’re so popular to use in horror movies.
