Tori Spelling brags about sleeping with Dean McDermott the day they met

Tori Spelling

Tori Spelling had another medical emergency a few days ago. She was hospitalized at Cedars Sinai for pneumonia-like symptoms. The Mail said doctors suspected Enterovirus. TMZ went further and added that Tori was under an Ebola-like quarantine. I didn’t cover the story because I was afraid of saying something not-so-nice. Tori may actually be very ill, but you can bet she let the tv cameras film the whole ordeal.

The new season of True Tori rages forth. We last spoke of Tori having lunch with Dean McDermott’s ex, Mary Jo Eustace. The encounter only made Tori look like a flailing floozy compared to the composed, civilized Mary Jo. I wondered why Mary Jo would appear on the show. Radar reveals that she was paid $10,000 for her trouble. That’s funny. Tori’s only making $50,000 for the whole season, and Dean’s making nothing.

The latest promo for the show features Tori bragging about how she and Dean slept together the first night they met (on the set of a Lifetime movie). Tori previously said she instantly wanted to marry Dean: “Like a million blocks of hearts first fell on me.” The main problem is that Dean was married and adopting a child with Mary Jo. Tori was married too, but whatever. She describes their initial lovemaking as the best thing ever. They weren’t just hitting it. They were in looove.

In this video, Tori says “It wasn’t like, ‘oh, just get your rocks off, have sex with someone just to have sex,’ you know? It was a conscious decision, like, fell head over heels for you.” Sure it was. Here’s Tori’s latest heartfelt speech:

She’s so full of it. Tori thinks Dean cheated on her because it’s “karma.” No. Dean cheated because Dean is a cheater. Tori is also a cheater. That’s the only truth of this whole dumb show. I don’t even know if Dean really cheated on Tori, but Tori filmed herself looking at a photo of Emily Goodhand. Tori was upset because she didn’t think Emily was attractive. Then Tori whined about finances before bragging about the 16-day sexfest she and Dean enjoyed this summer. I bet they filmed that too. God, this is so gross.

Dr. Oz’s miracle green coffee diet is based on a bogus study, says FTC

Dr. Oz

In June, I talked about how Dr. Oz was “scolded” by the Senate for promoting falsely advertised diet products. He got in trouble for his enthusiastic promotion of products like red palm oil, brown seaweed, and raspberry ketones. When he’s not talking about his second-favorite topic (poop), Oz constantly pushes these various products as miracle fat burners. After he was reprimanded, Oz said he was “accountable for his role.” He did not refuse to stop talking about supplements altogether because this would be “a disservice to the viewer.” Translation: Dr. Oz knows that his audience enjoys the “hope” of miracle diet products, and he’s not about to lose his viewers. Daddy wants to get paid, you know?

Well, here’s some more bad news for Oz. The FTC reports a failed study on one of Oz’s favorite no-diet/no-exercise products, green coffee extract. They summarize the findings of a placebo-controlled study, which concluded that research claims on this product could not be verified. The makers of this product, Applied Food Sciences, Inc. (which made a killing from “Dr. Oz effect”), will pay a $3.5 million settlement for false advertising:

A Texas-based company, Applied Food Sciences, Inc. (AFS), has settled Federal Trade Commission charges that it used the results of a flawed study to make baseless weight-loss claims about its green coffee extract to retailers, who repeated those claims in marketing finished products to consumers.

The FTC complaint alleges the study was so hopelessly flawed that no reliable conclusions could be drawn from it. The flawed study, which purported to show that the product causes “substantial weight and fat loss,” was later touted on The Dr. Oz Show.

The FTC’s settlement with Applied Food Sciences, Inc. (AFS), which sells a green coffee ingredient used in dietary supplements and foods, requires the company to pay $3.5 million, and to have scientific substantiation for any future weight-loss claims it makes, including at least two adequate and well-controlled human clinical tests.

“Applied Food Sciences knew or should have known that this botched study didn’t prove anything,” said Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “In publicizing the results, it helped fuel the green coffee phenomenon.”

According to the FTC’s complaint, in 2010, Austin, Texas-based AFS paid researchers in India to conduct a clinical trial on overweight adults to test whether Green Coffee Antioxidant (GCA), a dietary supplement containing green coffee extract, reduced body weight and body fat.

The FTC charges that the study’s lead investigator repeatedly altered the weights and other key measurements of the subjects, changed the length of the trial, and misstated which subjects were taking the placebo or GCA during the trial. When the lead investigator was unable to get the study published, the FTC says that AFS hired researchers Joe Vinson and Bryan Burnham at the University of Scranton to rewrite it. Despite receiving conflicting data, Vinson, Burnham, and AFS never verified the authenticity of the information used in the study, according to the complaint.

Despite the study’s flaws, AFS used it to falsely claim that GCA caused consumers to lose 17.7 pounds, 10.5 percent of body weight, and 16 percent of body fat with or without diet and exercise, in 22 weeks, the complaint alleges.

Although AFS played no part in featuring its study on The Dr. Oz Show, it took advantage of the publicity afterwards by issuing a press release highlighting the show. The release claimed that study subjects lost weight “without diet or exercise,” even though subjects in the study were instructed to restrict their diet and increase their exercise, the FTC contends.

[From FTC.gov]

So there you have it. Green coffee bean extract does not help anyone lose weight, and I suspect that Oz’s other endorsements would also fail FTC scrutiny. CBS points out that Oz will probably suffer no direct consequence after this botched study unless “there was proof that Oz knew the data was fraudulent.” So Oz will skate. Maybe he’ll lose some viewers as a result, but this won’t hurt his pocketbook unless advertisers get angry. Oz needs to tweak his show’s focus soon. How long can he continue to sell false promises on his show, and how long before he promotes a product that turns out to be dangerous?

Ellen Page’s lesbian drama ‘Freeheld’ banned from filming at Catholic school

FFN_Page_Moore_OTA_100514_51549460

A few weeks ago, I covered these photos from the set of Freeheld, the new drama about the totally true story of a cop (played by Julianne Moore) dying of cancer, and she wants to leave her death benefits to her partner (played by Ellen Page). This particular story has been told in an Oscar-winning documentary short, but I’m looking forward to this version too, just because… Julianne and Ellen!! YAY! As it turns out, not everyone is happy that this film is being made. Specifically, one Catholic school that refused to allow the film’s production to film within the school.

Freeheld, which is currently filming in the New York area, tells the story of how a lesbian couple fought discrimination more than 10 years ago to extend domestic partner benefits. With same-sex marriage spreading state by state this year, the movie — which stars Julianne Moore and Ellen Page, who is also a producer on the film — might feel like it took place a long time ago.

But Freeheld’s director Peter Sollett, producers, cast, and production staff were recently reminded that while some things have changed for LGBT people, others have not.

In Freeheld — based on Cynthia Wade’s Oscar-winning documentary short from 2007 — Moore plays a New Jersey detective dying of lung cancer who seeks to leave her pension to her partner, played by Page. In one scene, the couple applies for a civil union, and the production needed a building that could pass for a town hall.

Initially, the location scout was told that Salesian High School, a private, all-boys Catholic school in New Rochelle, N.Y., was available for the afternoon the scene was to be filmed. But then higher-up school administrators said no. Michael Shamberg, Freeheld’s producer, told BuzzFeed News that he then appealed to Salesian’s principal, John Flaherty, who told Shamberg to send an email that he could forward to Father John Serio, the school’s president. After doing that, Shamberg never heard back from Serio, and Freeheld shot the scene somewhere else.

“I respect their right to say no,” Shamberg said. “But it’s sad.”

When BuzzFeed News contacted Flaherty by email about the school’s reasoning in not wanting a movie with LGBT content to film there, he wrote: “All are welcomed at Salesian High School. Our School chooses to embrace the social issues such as hunger, homelessness, poverty, and helping the less fortunate.”

When asked in a follow-up email for more specifics, Flaherty responded, “I will let my initial statement stand for itself.”

[From Buzzfeed]

Shamberg is right, it’s the Church’s prerogative to deny certain films the right to film on their property. But it IS sad. If this was a movie about something other than gay marriage or civil unions or equal rights for same-sex partners, I’m guessing the Church would have allowed the film production in.

Ellen chimed in on her Twitter too:

Adam Lind Behind on Child Support, Taken to Court By Taylor Halbur

Teen Mom 2 cast member Adam Lind is quickly becoming one of the most notorious deadbeat dads on TV, and possibly life. Just ask Taylor Halbur.

Lind, famous for impregnating Chelsea Houska, then dumping her after the birth of their daughter, Aubree, and making her life hell, is doing it all again.

Halbur filed papers with the Department of Social Services last week to get Lind to pay child support for their daughter, Paislee, who is 13 months old.

Taylor Halbur “filed to get Adam to pay child support,” a source said.

Taylor Halbur, Adam Lind

“Taylor was tired of Adam not paying child support, and now that Paislee is older, she thought it was about time that Adam step up and pay his part.”

Halbur claims that she needs more help financially and isn’t getting it.

“Adam only sees Paislee a few days a month at most and now Paislee has more needs,” the source said. “It would be nice of Adam to put in some help.”

Lind allegedly has never offered his ex-girlfriend any money. Given their on-and-off relationship, Halbur let it slide in the past, but now she’s going after him.

Adam has never paid Taylor any child support since Paislee was born,” the source claims. “Originally, the court had requested that Adam pay $550 a month.”

“Taylor never saw that money, and she never followed through with getting Adam to pay because they were still in a relationship on and off,” the source said.

“But now that they are not together, it’s about time Adam helps out.”

Not as he sees it. Another source says “Adam is threatening to take Taylor to court to try and get full custody of Paislee just [so] he doesn’t [have to pay] support.”

“Adam’s reasoning is that Taylor doesn’t need money for daycare, and that he can take care of Paislee himself when Taylor needs someone to watch her.”

“He says that his gym has a program for kids.”

Chelsea Houska and Daughter

Of course, given Lind’s history of DUI arrests, multiple driving-related charges and even drug-related charges, him getting custody is a laughable idea.

Most recently, Lind’s ex-girlfriend Jessica Nicole accused him of doing steroids and physically hurting her, posting pictures of Lind shooting up online.

South Dakota fathers, lock up your 21-year-old daughters.

Kanye West to Kim Kardashian: You’re So Dope! I Love You!

We hate to write it, but Kim Kardashian may actually be growing up.

The reality star turned 34 years old yesterday, but she did not celebrate with any kind of Las Vegas blowout. What the heck?!?

Instead, we presume, Kim settled for a quiet night in with North West and Kanye West, the latter of whom honored his wife with a couple sweet Twitter messages.

Kim Kardashian Accentuates Breasts

“Happy Birthday baby! Thank you for being the dopest wife & mom!” West wrote, later adding:

“Sometimes I feel like just saying I love you isn’t strong enough to express how much I love you…”

AWWWW! So very romantic, right? And to think, some folks believe Kim and Kanye wouldn’t even last 72 days as husband and wife!

Earlier on her special day, Kardashian received birthday messages from members of her family, including a nice note from her mom/manager Kris Jenner.

“Happy Birthday to my precious daughter, best friend, and partner in crime,” Kris typed on Instagram. “You are the best daughter, wife, and mother and you have the biggest heart. You amaze me every single day and I am so blessed to have you to love. Enjoy your special day.”

We’re still waiting word from Ray J.

Hannibal Buress didn’t think people would notice his Bill Cosby rape jokes

Hannibal Buress

This story is a real mess. Have you ever heard of stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress? The dude has enjoyed moderate success even though he’s not a household name. Hannibal wrote for SNL for a few seasons and did the same for 30 Rock for half a season. You may have seen his routines on Comedy Central or some late-night network talk shows (such as Fallon and Letterman). Hannibal’s also known for his Broad Street stint.

Hannibal performed last Thursday in Philly. He went off on Bill Cosby. The rant was based on rape allegations made against Cosby over the years. Vulture has published a handy comprehensive timeline of these abuse charges, which were rehashed after the Cosby: His Life and Times biography came out in September. That book avoided the allegations against Cosby that gathered dust for over a decade. Most of the cases were civil in nature and settled out of court by Cosby. It’s worth noting that Cosby has never publicly responded to the allegations. Nor has he been charged in a criminal court.

Hannibal decided to make these accusations part of his comedy routine. The video (with NSFW language) of Thursday’s performance can be watched here. This is what Hannibal said:

“Thirteen [women]. It’s even worse because Bill Cosby has the f—ing smuggest old black man public persona that I hate. He gets on TV, ‘Pull your pants up black people, I was on TV in the 80s! I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom!’ Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches. ‘I don’t curse on stage!’ But yeah, you’re a rapist though, so…

“I guess I want to just at least make it weird for you to watch Cosby Show reruns. Dude’s image, for the most part, is a public Teflon image. I’ve done this bit on stage and people don’t believe me, people think I’m making it up. ‘Bill Cosby has a lot of rape allegations.’ ‘No, you do!’ When you leave here, Google ‘Bill Cosby rape.’ That sh-t has more results than ‘Hannibal Buress.’”

[From YouTube]

Some of these allegations against Cosby date back to the 1970s. Pre-internet awareness. A lot of people haven’t heard these things about Cosby and only know him as the affable, kooky fatherly figure on network television. Cosby is preparing to return to primetime, so Hannibal’s routine is timely.

Hannibal’s remarks went viral. People took notice, and many learned about these Cosby allegations for the first time. Hannibal visited Howard Stern to discuss the fallout. He says the attention was “unexpected. It wasn’t my intention to make it part of a big discussion. It was just something I was doing at that venue, right there. It’s just information that’s out there. I said it and I gotta stand on it, but it is an interesting situation.

Yes, it is interesting. Hannibal also said this on Twitter:

Who was the best dressed lady at Matthew McConaughey’s tribute?

FFN_RIJ_2014_CINEMATHEQUE_102114_51564528

I actually liked Matthew McConaughey’s GQ interview (go here to read), especially when he talked about his rom-com past and how that made him the man he is today. He’s not ashamed that he made those films, which is nice. And as a reward, so many of Matthew’s leading ladies came out to support him last night as he received the American Cinematheque Award. Seriously, almost all of Matthew’s former costars are women. It’s kind of nice. For the event, Matthew and his wife Camila were both wearing Dolce & Gabbana. Camila is a beautiful woman but this whole look is a NO. Matthew looks kind of rough here too.

I think Anne Hathaway finds it really difficult to incorporate bold colors into her red carpet looks. Her default is to always wear black, metallics or neutrals. She needs to rethink that. She wore this gothy Christopher Kane dress and I’m not really into it. I will give her this: she’s starting to grow out her hair and it looks fantastic.

Reese Witherspoon in a Prabal Gurung. I really like this! I know, it’s kind of prom-y and girly, but I think it’s interesting and she wears it well.

Yes, Kate Hudson’s hair is actually a weird dishwater-pink shade. I don’t get it either. Her dress is Jenny Packham. It looks like the bust wasn’t tailored correctly, right?

Jennifer Garner in Dolce & Gabbana. Camila should have worn this! On Garner, it’s pretty and simple. I like her styling here much more than her God-awful makeup at the Elle event two nights ago.
