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.

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.

Justin Bieber House Party: Broken Up by Cops!

Justin Bieber has remained relatively quiet over the past few weeks, as the singer has been traveling throughout Europe for nearly a month.

But Bieber made a loud impression upon returning home to Beverly Hills last night.

Too loud, in fact: neighbors once again called the authorities to complain about all the craziness emanating from Bieber’s residence.

Justin Bieber Poses in Paris

According to law enforcement sources, via TMZ, cops showed up at Bieber’s condo TWICE last night to deal with the complaints, arriving first at 11 p.m but not even bothering to knock because all seemed peaceful.

They then returned nearly two hours later, spoke to Bieber directly and broke up the shindig.

This is far from the only time that the police have been called in to put an end to Justin Bieber’s rowdy home behavior.

In July, the police department stepped in as Bieber was throwing it down with Johnny Manziel and Floyd Mayweather, among other guests; while a party guest called 911 in December because another attendee had collapsed and passed out.

Yikes!

Fortunately, no one as harmed in this latest incident, unless you count the reputation of Bieber.

We’ve gotta imagine it takes a hit every time his name is connected to law enforcement.

Justin Bieber: Baby Daddy?


In November 2011, Mariah Yeater accused Justin of fathering her child via a one-night quickie. The accusation eventually went away.

Khloe Kardashian Laughs Off Lionel Richie Paternity Rumor: I’ve Had So Many Dads …

Khloe Kardashian is laughing off the most recent tabloid story regarding who her real father is, saying she’s almost lost count of her number of fathers.

The latest? Lionel Richie is her real father, a rumor she obviously denies.

Khloe tells Gossip Cop, “I’ve had so many dads my head is spinning lol.”

  • Khloe Kardashian Tabloid Rumor
  • Khloe Kardashian Tabloid Kover

At least she has a sense of humor about it, even if she’s half serious. At least three people, by our count, have been falsely pegged in the role of late.

This has, ridiculously, been a recurring theme over at In Touch, which makes the subject of Khloe’s paternity a surprisingly regular topic of discussion.

While we all love good celebrity gossip, there’s something inherently desperate about making things up out of thin air, then recycling them over and over to boot.

In early 2013, Alex Roldan was rumored to be Khloe’s biological father, an allegation the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star decried as shameless.

Perhaps the most notorious fake Khloe father is O.J. Simpson.

  • OJ as Khloe Kardashian's Father?
  • Khloe Kardashian: Rejected!

Before the aforementioned cited Richie as Kardashian’s dad this week, Simpson’s alleged prison lover said O.J. is Khloe’s father, having slept with Kris Jenner.

O.J.’s friend and confidant Robert Kardashian Sr. divorced Kris, with whom he had four children (yes, including Khloe), in 1991. He passed away in 2003.

Those two at least had some connection. It’s unclear where the tabloid even came up with Richie, but Khloe has cleared it up for us, not that we needed her to.

Consider this paternal mystery solved by Khloe, Gossip Cop and common sense … at least until the next time their editors are lacking for a cover story.

At least Khloe’s siblings can relate to the tabloid nonsense frenzy …

Oh no! Kim Kardashian’s butt won’t stop growing! What will the reality star do?

Family Feud Contesant Slams Husband’s Manhood, Wishes She Could Change His Penis

Well, the game is called Family Feud, right?

In one of the more memorable clips from this very long-running game show, host Steve Harvey called two women up on a recent episode and posed to them a seemingly simply question:

If you could change one part of your husband’s body, what would it be?

Perhaps he should cut his hair. Maybe he has too much of a beer belly. Or maybe his penis is too small.

Wait… what?!? Watch the following video to see how a contestant named Joyce outed her husband’s manhood in front of audience members and viewers – with her husband standing a few feet away, no less!

This isn’t the first time a Family Feud response has left us in stitches.

About a year ago, a contestant proved to be clueless about zombies AND a little racist, while this finalist scored a total of ZERO points in the bonus round.

As for other memorable moments in game show history…

Wheel of Fortune Bonus Round Solve: Amazing!


Wow! This may be the greatest Wheel of Fortune solve in the history of this game show.

Kendra Wilkinson to Divorce Hank Baskett After All?

Is Kendra Wilkinson beginning to lose faith in the faith she regained in her marriage? Sources say she is now leaning toward a divorce from Hank Baskett. Again.

While promoting Kendra on Top Season 3, the reality star hinted in several interviews that there was hope for reconciliation, often singing the praises of Hank.

  • Go Kendra
  • Baskett in the Glory

This came as a bit of a surprise, given that he cheated on Wilkinson with Ava London, but you had to give her credit for giving this a chance to play out.

Well, that was before the leak of the Hank Baskett-Ava London phone calls in which he confirms the cheating and he offers to “make deposits” to the model.

“Hank told Kendra multiple times that no recordings existed between him and the woman,” a source says. “He said they never spoke again after ‘the incident.'”

Given this new information, Wilkinson is losing faith in him once more.

Possibly for good, as “she thinks that everything he told her is a lie,” the insider adds. “The sense of trust she was rebuilding with Hank is gone again.”

As we’ve seen on the first two episodes of the new season, and no doubt will see again on Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 4, she’s been BURNED.

Just the same, she’s “not making any snap decisions right now.”

Kendra and 2 Hanks


There was a time when Kendra and Hank looked to be a very happy couple. This photo was snapped in 2012.

“At the end of the day, I don’t want to be a stupid girl,” Wilkinson said last week in an interview. “I don’t want to be stupid, but I know Hank loves me.”

“At the end of the day, I have to take things one step at a time. Our #1 priority is making sure these two kids are raised with two parents, and [to] give them a great life.”

Will it be one in which the parents live together? Stay tuned.

Also this weekend, on K-Dubs’ aforementioned reality show, a girls night out nearly turns into a girls night BOUT on Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 5.

We wish we came up with that. That’s the episode title.

All she wants to do is have a good time until someone has to bring up Hank and the fact that he was masturbated by a woman with a penis and reciprocated.

Girl can’t catch a break.

Ben Affleck’s debate on Bill Maher: ‘We’ve killed more Muslims by an awful lot’


Gone Girl ruled the box office this weekend with a $38 million take. (Annabelle was very close behind at $37.2 million.) That’s good news for Ben Affleck’s career, although the movie’s success may have more to do with marketing and the popularity of Gillian Flynn’s novel. (I’ve read it but I haven’t seen the movie yet. Kaiser will have a review coming up shortly.)

Affleck has been hustling to promote the film. He made an appearance this weekend on Bill Mahar’s Real Time on HBO, where he got into a debate with Mahar and author Sam Harris on Islamaphobia and criticism of Islam. Harris claimed that liberals are afraid to criticize Islamic doctrine for fear of being labeled Islamaphobic. Affleck countered that it is Islamaphobic to criticize Islamic doctrine. Then Maher chimed in to call Islam “the only religion that acts like the mafia that will f*ing kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture or write the wrong book.” It was a mess, but I don’t regularly watch debate shows and it’s probably par for the course. Here’s some of what they said, and you can see the video above.

Sam Harris: Liberals have really failed on the topic of theocracy… When you want to talk about the treatment of women and homosexuals and public intellectuals in the Muslim world, I would argue that liberals have failed us. The crucial point of confusion is that we have been sold this meme of Islamaphobia where every criticism of the doctrine of Islam gets conflated with bigotry toward Muslims as people. That is intellectually ridiculous.

Ben Affleck: Are the person who understands the officially codified doctrine of Islam? You’re the interpreter of that so you can say…

Harris: I’m actually well educated on this topic.

Affleck: I’m asking you… you’re saying that Islamaphobia is not a real thing, that if you’re critical of something.

Bill Maher: It’s not a real thing when we do it.

Harris: I’m not denying that certain people are bigoted against Muslims as people…

Affleck: It’s gross, it’s racist. It’s like saying “you shifty Jew”

Maher: You’re not listening to what we’re saying.

Affleck: You guys are saying ‘if you want to be liberals believe in liberal principles like freedom of speech like we are endowed by our forefathers to inalienable rights like all men are created equal.’

Harris: We have to be able to criticize bad ideas. Islam is the motherlode of bad ideas.

Affleck: That’s an ugly thing to say.

Nicholas Kristof: The picture you’re painting is to some extent true, but it’s hugely incomplete. It is certainly true that plenty of fanatics and jihadis are Muslim, but the people who are standing up to them Malalla, Mohammad Ali Adack in Iran…

Affleck: How about the more than a billion people who aren’t fanatical, who don’t punish women, who just want to go to school, have some sandwiches… and don’t do any of the things that you’re saying all Muslims… stereotyping.

Maher: A billion people you say, all those billion people don’t hold any of those… pernicious beliefs. That’s just not true Ben. You’re trying to say that’s all the problem is… these few bad apples. You’re saying that the idea that someone can be killed if they leave the Islamic religion is just a few bad apples?

Ben: The people who actually believe in an act that you murder someone is not the majority of Muslims at all.

Harris: [Even] conservative Muslims… hold views about homosexuals, about women, about human rights that are deeply troubling. These are not Islamics, they are not jihadists, but they also keep woman and homosexuals immiserated in these cultures and we have to empower the true reformers in the Muslim world to change it. Lying about the length between doctrine and behavior is not going to do that.

Affleck: What is your solution? To condemn Islam?… We’ve killed more Muslims than they’ve killed us by an awful lot. We’ve invaded more Muslim countries… and yet somehow we’re exempted from these things because they’re not really a reflection of what we believe in. We did it by accident… that’s why we invaded Iraq. [To Harris] Your argument is like “you know, black people, you know they [inaudible]”

Maher: It’s based on facts. I can show you a Pew poll of Egyptians. They are not outliers in the Muslim world that say that 90% of them believe death is the appropriate response to leaving the religion.

Affleck: [That's like saying] “Ted Bundy did this. Goddamn these gays, they’re all trying to eat each other.”

Harris: It’s not [condemning] people, it’s ideas.

[From video of Real Time via E!]

I think that Harris made some valid arguments about criticizing the treatment of women and gay people under Islam and that Affleck mischaracterized those points. Then Maher took it too far and kind of proved Affleck’s point. It’s likely that they all decided ahead of time what stance they were going to take and that Affleck wasn’t directly responding to Harris, but to an overall theme that he was given backstage.

Affleck did make some decent arguments too, especially toward the end, although it came across as somewhat knee jerk to me. I don’t think it’s fair to lump all Muslims together based on the horrific acts of some extremists, just as it’s not fair to equate all Christians with radical cultists. I don’t think Harris was doing that, I think he was saying that we need to look at Islamic doctrine, call it what it is and foster more tolerant ideas, but again the same case could be made for Christianity. It’s hard to have a reasoned discussion about these issues when the stakes are so high and innocent people are being killed.

Also, Affleck looked really hungover to me.

Prince William & Kate issue legal threat to photographer Niraj Tanna

wenn21296531

Last week, something unusual happened. Prince William and Duchess Kate’s office made a major fuss over “an individual” who they claimed was “harassing” Prince George. What kind of harassment? They were complaining about a photographer talking photos of George when George was out and about with one of his nannies. This is the statement released by the Buckingham Palace spokesperson:

“The Duke and Duchess have taken legal steps to ask that an individual ceases harassing and following both Prince George and his nanny as they go about their ordinary daily lives,” Buckingham Palace spokesman James Roscoe said in a statement Thursday. “There is reason to suspect that the individual may been placing Prince George under surveillance and monitoring his daily routines for a period of time.”

The photographer, who was seen last week at a London Park following the toddler and his nanny, has been approached several times in the past few years by palace authorities.

“The Duke and Duchess understand the particular public role that Prince George will one day inherit but while he is young, he must be permitted to lead as ordinary a life as possible,” Roscoe said. “No parent would tolerate the suspicion of someone pursuing and harassing their child and carer whilst their child is playing in a public park or going about their daily activities.”

[From Today]

It was a strange story just at face value because it seemed like Will and Kate were complaining about photos being taken out in public, in a public park, which is just… well, unusual. Of course all royal babies (and all people) have privacy rights, but the whole thing just seemed… odd. Then it got even weirder. The photographer “harassing” George was named, and it’s Ikon Pictures’ photographer Niraj Tanna. Royal conspiracists have always noted the seemingly cozy relationship Tanna has with Kate and the Middleton family in particular, and it’s widely believed by those conspiracists that the Middletons have “set up” photo-ops with Tanna several times when he got weird exclusives. I guess the bloom is off the rose with that relationship though – over the past year, Tanna has been growing increasingly critical of William and Kate. And I guess they’ve noticed. Anyway, Tanna responded:

A photographer who has been accused of “harassing” Prince George by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has denied any wrongdoing will continue to take snaps of the 14-month old. Lawyers for Prince William and Kate Middleton accused two members of the press of intruding on the future king’s personal life as he went about his “ordinary daily” life with his nanny.

Lawyers for Tanna have insisted their client has not done anything wrong and the harassment accusations are “wholly without foundation”. In a seven page letter, Tanna’s lawyers said he was “fully entitled” to photograph Prince George in a public place and will “vigorously contest” any legal action.

It adds: “He will continue to undertake his work with the concerns of the Prince’s parents very much in mind.”

[From The International Business Times]

Interesting. While I don’t doubt that it would creep out any parent if a photographer had their long lens trained on their baby, it does feel like there’s something else at work here. We’ll see.

Oh, and The Mirror claims that IF Kate is feeling up to it, she and William are planning an official trip to New York. I think this would be Kate’s first-ever trip to New York. They’re loosely planning the trip for end of November/beginning of December. I hope they’re able to come. Skip Thanksgiving though and come in the beginning of December!

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 1 Recap: Who Wants Pancakes?

Many questions were just begging to be answered on The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 1:

  • Where are Bonnie and Damon?
  • How are Elena, Stefan, Caroline and company coping with their presumed deaths?
  • What is Alaric up to now that he’s back in the land of the living?
  • Will Matt Donovan actually be giving anything interesting to do this fall?
  • And what division of football is Whitmore College in?

Okay, the final one may not have been a pressing issue for most viewers, but we couldn’t help but wonder considering the high school-like atmosphere of that tailgate. Chaperones? Really?!?

Tyler Attacks!


Whoa there! Rage much, Tyler! This character is back in full force on The Vampire Diaries season premiere. Good luck with that, Luke.

As for the answers to the other inquiries, let’s go ahead and tackle them one by one:

BONNIE AND DAMON are… happily eating pancakes together every morning?!? We got a very, very quick glimpse at the pair to close the premiere and they seem to be living a normal life somewhere.

They were reading the newspaper. They were acting almost like a couple. They came across as anything but two people who were sucked away when The Other Side evaporated to close The Vampire Diaries Season 5. Intriguing.

CAROLINE is reacting to their presumed death by maintaining hope. She’s reading every book she can get her hands on to figure out a way to bring her friends back.

JEREMY is drinking a lot, playing video games and hooking up with random girls. What a life! Umm… we mean, he’s clearly having some issues.

MATT has joined some kind of Mystic Falls protection group that is led by someone named Tripp. He seems VERY interested in the supernatural.

STEFAN has gone off to Savannah and is barely speaking to anyone anymore. He’s hooking up with some girl named Ivy, but appears to be using her as a means to an important end: determining a way to get Damon back.

He tells Elena on the phone at one point that he’s given up hope and has said goodbye and she should do the same. But we don’t buy it.

TYLER is dealing with major rage issues, barely able to contain his temper now that he’s human again, with the werewolf curse still inside of him.

ALARIC “hates everything” about being a vampire. He’s having trouble dealing with the blood lust. And he’s lost his “game.” Elena’s new medical professor person tried hitting on him and Alaric totally stumbled.

Ah, yes, ELENA. She’s been taking some witchy drug cooked up for her by Luke all summer because it makes her hallucinate Damon. But it also makes her really thirsty and it’s led to her attacking some humans. She realizes she has to let go.

But she can’t. So she asks Alaric to compel her to forget Damon forever toward the end of the premiere. Think she’ll go through wit it?

Overall, a very solid opening to The Vampire Diaries Season 6. We caught up with every single character and we saw the effect the loss of their friends has had on them. But where are those friends?!?

Go watch The Vampire Diaries online via TV Fanatic and sound off here with your take on “I’ll Remember.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt on Criminal Minds: How Did She Do?

(Jennifer) Love (Hewitt) was in the air on Criminal Minds Season 10 Episode 1.

The former Ghost Whisperer and The Client List star made her debut on this CBS drama as Kate Callahan, a new member of the BAU team with extensive undercover experience.

We fist met the character as she laughed in the face of a child porn purveyor after he got hauled away in handcuffs.

We then saw her in the elevator with Reid and then in an interview with Hotch and then – Bam! – she had the job, taking the spot vacated by Blake when Jeanne Tripplehorn exited the series in May.

Hewitt was thrust right into a stomach-turning case on the Criminal Minds premiere, as the unit went after an UnSub who removed his victims’ arms, legs and head and then proceeded to leave the torso somewhere else entirely.

Once they tracked him down, Callahan was wounded in a scuffle, quickly proving her toughness to her new colleagues.

Viewers, meanwhile, learned a tidbit about Kate Callahan as the episode wound down: she has a teenage girl in her charge. Interesting.

Did you tune in for this opener? Do you need to watch Criminal Minds online to gauge Hewitt’s debut?

We know she’s hot. But does JLH fit in with the team? Vote: HOW DID JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT FARE ON THE CRIMINAL MINDS PREMIERE?

Kylie Jenner Has Had MULTIPLE Plastic Surgeries, Doctor Claims

The debate over whether or not Kylie Jenner has had plastic surgery has been going on for months with no conclusive answers.

While she’s never admitted it, it’s clear from her photos that Kylie’s had lip injections. Botox doesn’t qualify as “surgery,” however, and we may never know for sure if Kylie’s changing face is the result adolescence or top doctors.

Kylie Jenner Then and Now


Kylie Jenner now and just a few years ago. She looks a tad different.

Ken Youn is a Los Angeles-area plastic surgeon who has never treated Kylie, but after examining her “before and after” photos, he says he’s fairly certain that she’s had work done.

He also confirms what we already knew: Kylie is turning into Kim.

“Her face looks very different, and I suspect a plastic surgeon might be playing a part here,” said Youn in an interview with radar Online.

“Her eyebrows are more arched and elevated, a possible consequence of Botox injections into her forehead and around her eyes. Her nose looks thinner and more refined, possibly from a subtle rhinoplasty.”

“Her lips appear to have enlarged dramatically. I suspect this could be from multiple injections of a filler like Juvederm.”

While he didn’t come to any definitive conclusions, Youn guesses that Kylie has undergone several different procedures.

Being 17, of course, Kylie would need parental permission before receiving any sort of cosmetic surgery. But we imagine Kris Jenner is pretty easy to convince. 

Her kids probably figured out at a young age that as long as they tell it’s “good for the brand,” they can pretty much do whatever they want.
