Khloe Kardashian and French Montana: Still BFFs!

When Khloe Kardashian and French Montana broke up last month it surprised literally no one.

They were an odd couple from the start and it was widely rumored that French cheated on Khloe with just about every woman he came in contact with while they were dating.

But while the relationship has been over for weeks, the reality TV version of Khloe and French won’t debut until next week when Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons hits the E! network. 

So, as further evidence that it’s really weird to live your life with a 10-week broadcast delay, Kourtney has been forced to talk about French while promoting her 117th E! reality series.

Instead of trash-talking the Q-list rapper like we had hoped, Khloe says she and French are totally still besties!

“I love memories,” Khloe says when asked about Montana. “I still talk to him. There’s no bad blood or anything.”

Discussing her feelings about French appearing on her new show, Khloe offered this surprising comment:

“I think it’s cool. I like that people get to see a part of our relationship. I don’t think it’s fair to judge people by appearance or what you think you know about them.”

She then went on to fondly reminisce about their trip to South Africa and gush about how French pushes her to do things she “probably wouldn’t do” on her own. Seriously.

So, who has “next week” in the “When will Khloe and French get back together?” pool? We’re guessing it’ll happen before then.

Tom Hiddleston is coming back to Marvel’s warm nerd-embrace, thank God

wenn20784319

In all honesty, I don’t really care that much about comic book movies. (Stage whisper: I never even watched Iron Man 3.) So it’s kind of funny that I get to write about some of this stuff. So, Marvel gave every geek a nerdgasm yesterday when they announced a huge slate of projects for the next four years or so. This is, I believe, all of Marvel’s Phase 2 and Phase 3 stuff. Or… something. Here’s what I learned:

*There will finally be a major black hero when Marvel introduces Black Panther, also known as T’Challa, “the head of the fictional African nation of Wakanda.” Black Panther will be played by one of my favorite newish actors, Chadwick Boseman. I’ve been hoping that Boseman gets some major projects and stepping into the Marvel world is BIG. Good job, Boseman! Black Panther will be out November 2017.

*Doctor Strange is still scheduled for a November 2016 release, but Benedict Cumberbatch’s casting was not confirmed.

*Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 will be out May 2018, and Part 2 will be out May 2019. Captain Marvelthe first major female superhero – will get a stand-alone film out July 2018.

*But the biggest news for the Dragonflies is about their king, Dragonfly Lord Tom Hiddleston. Marvel announced that Thor: Ragnarok will have a release date of July 28, 2017. Kevin Fiege confirmed that Hiddles would definitely return as Loki for the film. Fiege also confirmed that Thor: Ragnarok would be set immediately after The Avengers: Age of Ultron. This is what the film might entail, courtesy of Cinema Blend:

The Ragnarok storyline is one Thor fans have been begging to see on screen in this particular universe. For those unfamiliar with their Norse mythology, Ragnarok is the prophesized apocalyptic battle that is foretold to result in the complete destruction of Asgard, Thor’s home. It is written that it is Loki who is destined to bring about these end times, and Thor – being both a hero and the God of Mischief’s brother – is responsible for stopping these events from occurring.

When we last left Loki in Thor: The Dark World, he was certainly in a position to do quite a bit of damage. Taking the form of Odin (Anthony Hopkins), he sat on the throne he wanted ever since he was a child and was able to get Thor to leave Asgard behind to be with his beloved Jane Foster on Earth. Presumably the end of The Avengers: Age of Ultron will feature Thor realizing exactly what his brother has done and return to an Asgard that has spent a great deal of time under Loki’s boot.

The title Thor: Ragnarok is definitely a significant one, and Kevin Feige promised that it will have an effect on the Marvel Cinematic Universe as big as what Captain America: The Winter Soldier was able to pull off.

Praise our Dragonfly Lord and Savior. MOAR DANCING!!! I’m actually thrilled beyond belief that we have more Hiddleston/Marvel stuff to look forward to in the years to come. YAY!!!!

Jennifer Aniston’s possible Oscar contender ‘Cake’ finally finds a distributor

wenn21694147

Jennifer Aniston had the difficult task of promoting her latest film, Cake, during the Toronto International Film Festival in September. The difficulty was that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had just gotten married. Aniston solved her PR problem by wearing a see-through top with no bra and getting her publicist to encourage lots and lots of Oscar talk. Cake got decent reviews at TIFF and People Mag (and other outlets) dutifully claimed that Aniston could be a legit Oscar contender this year. The problem? Cake didn’t pick up an American distributor at TIFF. More than a month passed, and still no distributor. What happened next is very interesting:

After the dark comedy Cake set tongues wagging at Toronto about Jennifer Aniston’s performance, there has been speculation that the film’s makers would capitalize on that momentum by putting the movie out before year’s end to qualify for Oscar consideration. Cinelou Films’ producers Mark Canton and Courtney Solomon have launched a new prestige arm in Cinelou Releasing, and they have set Cake as their first film. The pic will have a one-week qualifying run in December before rolling out in January. Canton, Kristin Hahn and Ben Barnz produced with Solomon.

“When my life and producing partner Ben Barnz and I first read Cake just fourteen months ago, we knew we had to go to Jennifer Aniston. It was the most obvious un-obvious choice – she’s mega-talented, but we’ve never seen the whole range of her extraordinary comic and dramatic abilities showcased in one role,” said director/EP Daniel Barnz.

Cinelou Releasing will launch up to four films over the next year, and you can belatedly add this to all of the rising distribution companies that made statement transactions at Toronto. The label has a deal with Warner Bros. Pictures to handle international distribution for six of its films over the next three years. “We congratulate Mark Canton and Courtney Solomon on their new company,” said Warner Bros. International Distribution president Veronika Kwan Vandenberg. “We look forward to our upcoming international collaborations with them beginning next year with Cake.”

“Having a U.S. distribution arm was always part of our strategy to be in control of the creative, marketing and financial results of our films,” said Solomon. “We were very pleased with how Cake turned out and are excited about all the opportunities the film presents on multiple levels…Cinelou was formed to produce brave, bold and interesting films that both challenge and showcase talent.”

Said Canton: “We’re very proud and excited that our new distribution banner will allow Cake to be released with the same passion and commitment that went into making the film.”

[From Deadline]

This is interesting on two levels. One level, the level that people are reacting to right now, is that Aniston is making a play for an Oscar campaign. Aniston and her people want to launch something centered around her performance. Will she end up getting a nomination? Doubtful. She might end up with a Spirit Award nomination though. The other level of interest is what was happening behind the scenes to even get this film distributed in America. It honestly sounds like NO ONE wanted to distribute it at all and Cinelou had to pull their new distribution arm together within the last month, just to push Cake… and Jennifer Aniston.

Kim Kardashian works so hard: ‘I don’t think reality TV gets the respect it deserves’

wenn21861262

Kim Kardashian made an appearance at the Re/code conference on Monday in California. She sat down for a Q&A session and she ended up talking about her branded video game (which is still making crazy money), her favorite phones and her reality show. You can read the full coverage here – there were plenty of eye-roll moments, but all in all… she has been ahead of the social media curve most of her adult life, you know? Some highlights:

When asked why people don’t take her seriously: “I don’t know. That is a question that sometimes I get frustrated with. I pride myself with my work ethic, and I work really hard. I think when people hear that I might have gotten success off of a ‘reality show,’ they take that as a negative. We’re in our tenth season. We have more episodes than ‘I Love Lucy.’ We have so many milestones that people don’t think about.”

She works really hard, you guys: “I wake up every single day at 6 am, and go to the gym, and get my daughter up, feed my baby, film all day, sometimes don’t finish until 8 or 9 pm, and that’s every single day, six days a week, for five months straight while we’re filming … I don’t think reality TV gets the respect it deserves.”

Being called “the Olympics of oversharing”: “I’ve always just been open. I’ve been super-open with my life, and that’s just who I am, and that’s how my family is, too,” Kardashian West responded, noting later in the interview that she handles all of her social media posting — and seemed genuinely flabbergasted that other celebs might have teams do this for them.

She is NOT paid $10,000 per tweet: “I would have been tweeting every two seconds if it was true.”

Loving Instagram: “I’m loving Instagram. I think you can be really creative, and a little more intimate. It has more texture than just words, obviously… [I have] a three-image rule. In the same setting, I try not to do more than three. It oversaturates my feed.”

She’s loyal to Blackberry: “I love my BlackBerry. I don’t understand the reaction I get when I say that. It’s my heart and soul, I love it and I’ll never get rid of it. I do have an iPhone, and I use it for photos. But if you write an email and you need to type fast — I like having the [key]board. They don’t even have them in stores anymore. I buy them on eBay. It’s a BlackBerry Bold. And I like to have three in my room that I line up in case they break.”

Her iOS Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game and whether it’s really made $200 million: “We’ll never talk dollars and cents … It could be more. It could be less. It’s been very good to me.”

[From Re/code]

She also said that she’s working with video game people to add more “characters” to the game and it sounds like there will be some updates that will probably add up to even more $$$ for Kim. As for her Blackberry obsession – I’ve known people, professional people, who are still very loyal to their Blackberries too. I think it’s just like Apple loyalty – it’s just a preference for user-friendliness and some people are happier with the feel of a Blackberry.

Oh, and she really needs to stop comparing Keeping Up with the Kardashians with I Love Lucy. STAHP.

Benedict Cumberbatch: Sherlock has a sex drive, he just suppresses it for work

bendy1

Sigh… such a magnificent otter. Okay, we have a few Cumbercrumbs today, mostly catch-up stuff from yesterday’s Cumberthon, with the Doctor Strange rumor and the release of Elle UK’s first excerpts. First of all, I think Elle UK sent out a press release with some quotes and a summary, because a lot of different outlets are running the Elle stuff with the same sentence: “Benedict – who was shot by photographer Mark Horn for ELLE UK – is currently in a relationship with Sophie Hunter but he admits the dating game has become more complicated since he became famous.” So… a confirmation that Sophie Hunter is the secret girlfriend? Yes. Just take it as a confirmation, even though we’ve known for MONTHS that he’s dating Sophie. And there are a few more quotes from the Elle piece:

Sherlock’s sexuality: “He’s asexual for a purpose. Not because he doesn’t have a sex drive, but because it’s suppressed to do his work. Cold showers, looking at a lot of dead bodies… that’ll do it for you.”

On playing geniuses in both The Imitation Game and Sherlock: “It [genius] is a very rich canvas to work with as an actor. Turing is so different to Sherlock. There’s a real subtlety about him; his flourishes aren’t flamboyant, he doesn’t think of himself that highly.”

The future: “I can imagine I’ll look back at this point in my life and think, ‘Wow that was really extraordinary’. But at the same time I hope I’m looking back and going, ‘Oh, that was the moment I got on with life and realized things beyond myself’. Without using words like ‘marriage’, ‘children’ and ‘family’ – although I have just used those words – put it this way: I hope I’ve got other people to look back with me at that point. I hope I’m surrounded by family.”

[From Contact Music]

I don’t know why Bendy keeps getting asked to compare and contrast Alan Turing and Sherlock Holmes. It seems like a very tired line of questioning. But I could listen to him talk about Sherlock’s sexuality all day long.

Oh, and here’s the “secret project” Benedict did with the BBC. Because Bendy will literally do anything for the BBC. He’s their go-to guy. So he recited Hamlet’s “All the world’s a stage” speech for a BBC promotional ad for “A Lifetime of Original British Drama on the BBC.” All I can think is “velvet voice, hate the hair.” Oh, and yes he’s wearing a denim shirt. Of course.

Amy Poehler: Feminism questions ‘get us to talk sh-t about each other’

Amy Poehler

I hope you’re not tired of Amy Poehler yet. She’s been everywhere to promote her new Yes Please book. She’s talked about divorce advice and aging. Amy visited David Letterman and wore this cute, red plaid coat. She told Dave how she wanted to set fire to the Parks & Rec set during the show’s final episode. Amy also visited Howard Stern (via Popwatch) and admitted she went on a one-off date with Uncle Jesse John Stamos and “blew it.” Amy says she didn’t realize it was a romantic outing until it was too late. She then admitted to enjoying pr0n and apologized to her father. You can listen to that whole episode here.

What I’d like to talk about is Amy’s visit to AOL Build where she talked about the celebrity feminism discussion. Amy’s referring to the routine questions by journalists with nearly every starlet. Some have passed, but most have failed the inquiry. Here’s what Amy has to say about this popular topic:

“This discussion — the media discussion of who is and isn’t a feminist — is yet another example of the media attempting to divide us, to take us and split us apart, and our view among each other,” said Poehler. “So it’s like, ‘She said she was, she said she wasn’t, now she is, now she’s not, she made her one.’ It’s just bullsh-t. It’s yet another attempt to get us to talk shit about each other, for people to bait you into [responding to] ‘What do you think about so and so?’”

First of all, it’s none of my business what they they want to say or do — that’s what feminism is. And also, what you believe or say at 20 is different at 40, is different at 60. I think as women, we need to continue to constantly celebrate what we have in common and share, and stop letting this society focus on how we’re different. It’s really frustrating. Yet again, the topic of feminism is another example of people cooping it, taking it out of our hands, and we have to kind of take it back.

[From AOL Build]

Amy previously covered Elle and told the magazine that she is a feminist. She says some actors and musicians avoid the term, which is to say, “I don’t really believe in cars, but I drive one every day and I love that it gets me places and makes life so much easier and faster and I don’t know what I would do without it.” Amy gets it. She’s also calling all of us out for our scrutiny of actresses and singers. Are we all guilty as charged? A lot of young women are afraid of the F-word. Discussing the term openly can only fix that fear and confusion.

Jim Carrey has amazing stories about how much Tommy Lee Jones hated him

wenn21132843

I never saw Batman Forever, the one with Val Kilmer as the Batman and Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones as the bad guys (the Riddler and Two-Face). That one and the George Clooney Bat-nippled one just kind of escaped me. But I remember hearing stuff about the Batman Forever production and how tortuous the whole thing was everyone involved. Tommy Lee Jones was fresh off his Oscar win for The Fugitive and he clearly just signed on to the Batman movie for the money. And he was stuck doing scenes with Jim Carrey, who was at the height of his popularity/film stardom. Tommy was and is a “real actor” with a great education and real training. Carrey was just cut from a different cloth. So yeah, they hated each other. Jim is doing interviews to promote Dumb and Dumber To and he stopped by Howard Stern. Stern asked him about the Tommy Lee situation:

Jim Carrey, 52, was asked about his time with Jones when he appeared on The Howard Stern Show on Tuesday, Oct. 28, in promotion of his upcoming movie Dumb and Dumber To.

“When you were doing Batman Forever, when you were making that, the legend goes that you were on the set fighting with this guy Tommy Lee Jones the whole time,” Howard Stern began. “The two of you did not get along at all, you annoyed him, he annoyed you…”

The comedian did not deny the claims and reflected back to his time filming the superhero movie with Jones, now 68.

“I think what happened was, I was really looking forward to working with Tommy because he’s a fantastic actor and he still is to me, I mean he’s amazing, but he was a little crusty, he was a little crusty,” Carrey said, going on to joke about Jones’ Ivy League education. “Sometimes that Rhodes Scholarship is more of a weapon than an asset.”

“I think he was just a little freaked out because Dumb and Dumber came out on the same weekend as Cobb, and Cobb was his big swing for the fences and that didn’t work out and that freaked him out a bit I think,” the actor continued, referencing Jones’ 1994 Ty Cobb biopic, which opened to mixed reviews from critics and less-than-stellar box office numbers. Any suspicions Carrey had that Jones felt negatively about him were confirmed one night during the filming of Batman Forever.

“I walked into a restaurant the night before our big scene in the Riddler’s lair and the maitre’d said, ‘You’re working with Tommy Lee Jones, aren’t you?’ And I said ‘Yeah, I am.’ He said, ‘He’s in the back corner, he’s having dinner.’ I said, ‘Oh, great, I’ll go say hi.’” Carrey told Stern. “I went up to say hi and the blood drained from his face, in such a way that I realized that I had become the face of his pain or something.”

“He got up, kind of shaking, and hugged me and said ‘I hate you. I really don’t like you,’” Carrey added. “I was like ‘Wow, okay. Well, what’s going on man?’ And he said, ‘I cannot sanction your buffoonery.’ He did not want to work with me at that point.”

[From Us Weekly]

Ha!!! Jim makes Tommy Lee sound like Yosemite Sam. “Sir, I say SIR, I cannot sanction your buffoonery! Good day!” And yes, “crusty” is a great description for Tommy Lee. Even Harrison Ford was terrified of Tommy Lee and Harrison is one of the butchest, manliest actors out there. Tommy Lee really is the human version of Grumpy Cat. As for Jim… I think he’s being honest and I don’t really think this story is shocking or anything. Everyone knew Tommy hated Jim. Jim didn’t even diss Tommy that hard!

Oh, and there were some requests for Jim’s take on Matthew McConaughey’s Lincoln ads. This is the best version of Jim Carrey!

Eddie Redmayne claims he’s not a movie star: ‘I’m just trying to pay my mortgage’

ER variety

Eddie Redmayne isn’t my particular cup of tea, looks-wise. He’s too pretty and model-y for my taste, although I’ve seen many photos of him where all I can think is “wow, such a beautiful, interesting face.” So, is this the best photo of Eddie on the cover of Variety? Nope. I think they were aiming for sultry and it just became… weird. The Variety article is about Eddie’s career thus far, how he struggled to find work in the early days, and how he prepared for The Theory of Everything and playing Stephen Hawking. It’s a great read – go here to read the whole thing. Eddie comes across as a really nice dude with a big group of friends and colleagues who adore him. He even talks about Benedict Cumberbatch and the possibility that two posh Brits could be going head-to-head for the Best Actor Oscar. Some highlights:

Eddie on his friend Benedict Cumberbatch: “I totally see why people are (comparing us), because of the subject matter; we both play geniuses. But I won’t be engaged in that. I think he’s the most beautiful actor. I’ve long admired his work, and continue to do so. I hope there’s room for both our films.” Cumberbatch had played Hawking in a 2004 BBC TV movie, and the actor’s name even showed up on set one day, when “Theory of Everything” was filming at his old boarding school. “There was this hilarious moment when we were shooting a scene at Harrow School,” Redmayne says. “There was a wooden board with names engraved on it, and by my head was ‘B. Cumberbatch.’ I’m like, ‘Dude, you’re haunting me!’ I took a selfie of me dressed as Stephen and sent it to Ben.”

He’s not a movie star: “A movie star is someone who has to open a film to gazillions of dollars. I’m just trying to pay my mortgage.”

This is what Kristen Stewart says about him: “We had a great time together. This is not a word I use a lot, but it describes him perfectly. He is a f–king lovely man. And he’s astounding as an actor. He’s the type of actor, and guy, you want to go on an adventure with.”

His time in LA, struggling with Andrew Garfield, Tom Sturridge & Jamie Dornan: “You’d come over for a month. We used to go to the Standard Hotel in West Hollywood, and split a sandwich between us because that meant we could get cheaper parking. We’d swim and play table tennis for hours. We were staying on friend’s agents’ floors, and renting places together. I’d be driving the cheapest rental car. But then you’d get to turn up at the CAA party. All these huge limos would arrive. I’d be in this red blob.”

E.L. James dissed him when he said he would be open to playing Christian Grey: “She took to her Twitter feed to go, ‘Under no circumstances!’ I was like, all right, all right! Am I that bad? I can put a whip in my hand. I can get all kinky, can’t I? Apparently not.”

[From Variety]

He should take it as a badge of honor that E.L. James dissed him. That should get him MORE work. Anyway, most of the article is about the process Eddie went through to show Hawking’s physical deterioration and it’s pretty clear that Eddie put a ton of work and research into the role. Hawking even liked Eddie’s performance so much, he agreed to lend his computerized voice to the film to make Eddie’s performance more authentic. Eddie also says that Hawking totally flirted with Felicity Jones, the actress playing Hawking’s first wife. Here’s something else I didn’t know: at one point, early in the process of casting this film, producers wanted Michael Fassbender. That would have been a fascinating casting choice, but I’m glad it went to Eddie.

So, if it does come down between Benedict’s Alan Turing and Eddie’s Stephen Hawking, who has the upper hand with the Academy? The Academy loves posh British actors, so that’s kind of a wash. I feel like Benedict is more “familiar” to the average Oscar voter, but I think Eddie’s physical transformation will be a huge factor. Sigh… I just hope they BOTH get nominated. Seriously.

June Shannon Had Daughter With Second Sex Offender, New Report Says

The star of the newly-canceled TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo may have been even more rife with scandal than originally believed.

Executives axed the show amid reports of matriarch June “Mama June” Shannon dating her ex-boyfriend Mark McDaniel, a convicted child molester.

June Shannon and Mark McDaniel dated before his 10-year prison sentence, and he even molested one of June’s daughter’s prior to being locked up.

McDaniel is not the first sex offender Shannon has been linked to, though.

  • June Shannon Pic
  • Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Family

The father of Shannon’s daughter Jessica, Michael Anthony Ford, was arrested in 2005 and later convicted for the sexual exploitation of a child over the Internet.

According to Georgia Department of Corrections, he was sentenced to a maximum of four years behind bars and 10 years of probation for the criminal offense.

He is still behind bars on a separate charge of child abandonment.

The fathers of Shannon’s other children, including estranged husband David Michael “Sugar Bear” Thompson, also have criminal records, albeit not for sex crimes.

The father of the titular Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson), Suge was sentenced to to five years for robbing a series of campsites and setting fire to another.

David Dunn, the father of Anna Thompson, did time for stealing a handgun and later for stealing a carton of cigarettes. June sure knows how to pick ‘em.

Anna was molested by Mark McDaniel before he went to prison, while Honey Boo Boo was exposed to him after he got out this year, photo evidence shows.

She and Sugar Bear split not long after Mark got out of the slammer.

All of which begs the question of why June wasn’t vetted by producers of Toddlers & Tiaras, where Alana got her reality TV start, or Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

Reality TV Family


This family is way more famous than you are. It’s just unclear why, exactly.

A basic background check would have shown that Shannon and McDaniel were connected via a residential address, along with several other names.

McDaniel’s name comes up as an “associated” name listed at a Stockbridge, Ga., address between 1996-2009 – the same as June’s address from 2001-07.

When the two shows premiered, in 2009 and 2012, respectively, he was in jail. In any case, “Background checks don’t catch everything,” one Hollywood lawyer said.

“And then you have the issue of juvenile records, which aren’t shown.”

Discovery had to abruptly cancel Sons of Guns, after star Will Hayden was arrested on multiple charges of rape and sexual assault against minors this year.

In this case, Hayden had no prior sexual offenses, so Discovery would have had no way of knowing about the alleged crimes except from the victims.

One high-powered reality TV executive says these two shows may change how diligently cast and crew members are vetted from this point on, however.

“This will force companies to go much deeper,” explained the source. “If a child is involved in a show, the entire crew undergoes background checks too.”

“That is likely to become more thorough as well.”

TLC Cancels Here Comes Honey Boo Boo


Give the network credit. It pulled the plug as soon as rumors spread of June Shannon dating her daughter’s former molester. EWWWWW!
