Step into the Way Back Machine with me for a moment of Gossip History. I actually had to go through our archives to find all of this stuff, so I hope it’s worth it. Back in September 2011, Brad Pitt dropped a “bomb” on Team Aniston: Brad gave an interview to Parade Mag and he kind of maybe said that Jennifer is kind of dull and that he hated being married to her. Those weren’t his exact words, but almost immediately his actual words were parsed, exploited and sensationalized by EVERYONE. Within a day of the interview release, Brad released a public statement sort-of apologizing for hisMore >
For many years, I kept a subscription to Esquire and only recently cancelled it late last year. Of course, they’re still emailing me weekly about renewal fees because magazines are so pesky like that. Why did I finally cancel? I got tired of their avant garde interview style, which was disconcertingly juxtaposed with endless cheesecake photo spreads. Esquire’s own, self-desclared motto is “style and substance,” and I was starting to feel that there was far too much style and not enough substance to warrant paying even $1 per issue of their renewal fee. You know that magazines don’t evenMore >
On Sunday night, La Toya Jackson was fired from Celebrity Apprentice.
But it’s what the sister of Michael said after Donald Trump let her go that may get her in serious legal trouble.
Referring to Omarosa Manigault, Jackson went off, actually calling out the contestant for the death of her late fiance, Michael Clarke Duncan.
“She’s a conniving, scheming, cut-throat, probably pulled the cord on Michael Clarke Duncan,” LaToya said. “And I thought Mr. Trump was falling for that fake cry. Such a lie.”
Whoa there, LJ!
In response to that statement, Omarosa has hired an attorneyMore >
I put a link to this Brandi Glanville interview in yesterday’s afternoon links, but it’s worth some coverage today now that I’ve had time to read the whole thing. Brandi sat down for an utterly exhaustive interview with Buzzfeed – you can read the whole thing here. The first half is all Real Housewife stuff – who Brandi is fighting with, who is on drugs, why she runs around throwing verbal bombs at everyone. The second half is more interesting to me (because I don’t watch RHOBH) – it’s about LeAnn and Brandi’s book and stuff. There’s a TON of stuff. Some highlights:
Where Brandi is
God, can you believe that Ireland Baldwin is already 17 years old? I feel so ancient. I still remember when Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger brought their baby home and Alec promptly celebrated by RAGING at some paparazzo sitting outside of their house. In her 17 years on this earth, Ireland has been at the center of her parents’ divorce drama, custody drama, and Ireland was of course the recipient of Alec’s infamous “Rude, vile little pig” voicemail. But beyond the drama, Ireland has grown up to be a lanky, leggy 6’2” blonde beauty who seems to as well-adjusted as can be expected. SheMore >
Is there any doubt that Jessica Simpson is a hustler? She’s making the talk show rounds to promote Fashion Star, using her unique brand of low-brow gross-out overshare humor. Have we had another celebrity like this? I mean there’s Snooki, there’s Jenny McCarthy (who merges sexy with gross) and there’s Jessica, who just laughs and talks about how she doesn’t brush her teeth, use birth control, or try to hold in her farts. I’m not even exaggerating with her, she does all these things and it doesn’t even seem like she’s trying to be self-deprecating. She just thinks that it’s interesting to usMore >
Justin Bieber’s taken a page from Axl Rose’s “several hours late for his own concert” playbook. Axl, of course, has always been extremely tardy for his own gigs and doesn’t plan on stopping the practice anytime soon. Everyone always knows that Axl’s going to be late — I think I remember reading his lame rationale in an early 1990s interview where he claimed that he got carried away while meditating backstage — and it’s to be expected even though it’s ridiculous that his fans will put up with that sort of behavior. At the very least, Axl knows that his fans won’t necessarily have to wake upMore >
But might no one be coming in?
According to TMZ sources, attorneys and managers of potential Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members are telling their clients NOT to sign on for this Bravo franchise.
Individuals can seemingly say absolutely anything with no repercussions, as Grammar and Maloof have both complained over the years about other women outright lying about their business ventures… with no legal recourse of any kind.
This could be a serious problem for anyone with an actual life outside theMore >
The New York Times has an exhaustive story on everything that went down on the final day of Oscar Pistorius’s bail hearing, which began on Tuesday and only ended about a half an hour ago. I can’t say that I’m crazy about the South African legal system after seeing this brief glimpse from Oscar Pistorius’s bail hearing – it seems like the prosecution has been forced to rush their investigation and spend hours justifying their methods before the investigation is even complete, when that time should be spent at the crime scene or talking to witnesses, etc. Anyway, long story short – OscarMore >
