Jan Hooks Dies; Saturday Night Live Alum Was 57

Jan Hooks, a Saturday Night Live cast member from 1986-1991, passed away today after a long battle with a serious illness. She was 57 years old.

Sources confirm that Hooks, who most recently guest-starred on 30 Rock as Jenna Maroney’s mother, passed away in New York City.

The precise cause of death is unknown at this time.

Hooks appeared on the iconic sketch comedy program opposite Chris Farley, Mike Myers, Phil Hartman, Dana Carvey and Dennis Miller, among others.

She is best remembered for impressions of Sinead O’Connor and Hillary Clinton, while Hooks was also one half of the Sweeney Sisters.

Following her run on Saturday Night Live, Hooks joined the cast of Designing Women and later had a prominent role on Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure. She was also nominated for an Emmy Award in 1998 for an appearance on 3rd Rock from the Sun.

We send our thoughts to the loved ones of Jan Hooks.

Ian Somerhalder & Nina Dobrev: Not Speaking on The Vampire Diaries, Nikki Reed to Blame?

The Vampire Diaries’ smoldering stars, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, broke up months ago, just like their characters on the long-running CW drama.

The two, who dated for several years, have slowly drifted apart, and sources say it’s no shock that their lives are mirrored in the supernatural drama this year.

  • Delena Sex GIF
  • Nikki Reed Picture

Allegedly, it was by Nina’s request that “Delena” (for Damon and Elena) was no longer the focal point of the series, and not just because she hates bad TV.

Dobrev reportedly hates that Nikki Reed is dating with and loving Ian Somerhalder and she can’t stand to even be near him, even when he’s playing Damon.

It’s easy to dismiss these reports as mere celebrity gossip fodder, but lest we forget, Ian and Nina met and fell in love while playing out the fictional romance.

Elena and Damon became fan favorites, and fans went gaga when the on-screen couple fell into an off-screen relationship. It was all too good to be true.

Things ended this year, with fans trashing Reed and Somerhalder defending his magical, beautiful girlfriend online in ways he never publicly spoke of Nina.

If Nina didn’t publicly lobby for Delena fall apart on the show – or at least take a back seat for awhile – it’s hard to imagine a world where she’s upset about it.

Some insiders say the two purposely try to avoid each other. Awkward.

When The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 1 airs next month, we will pick up months after Damon “died” … no doubt to get him away from Elena.

Sure, it could (and likely is) a tired plot device designed to kill time before bringing Delena back together for the show’s endgame, but it works out now.

This way, they don’t have to force feelings that are no longer there.

And if this is the last season, as has been rumored for some time and probably should be the case given the total creative shutdown, well, they’ll survive.

That way, all parties can move on sooner rather than later.

Sons of Anarchy Premiere Shatters Series Ratings Record

Sons of Anarchy is off and running killing… and setting series ratings record.

According to an FX press release, the Sons of Anarchy Season 7 premiere drew 6.2 million total viewers, along with a 3.2 rating among adults 18-49, both high water marks for the Kurt Sutter-produced drama.

Jax on SOA

The extra long episode mostly centered on Jax’s thirst for vengeance, as he’s now out of prison and focused on taking down those responsible for his wife’s murder on the Season 6 finale. 

He believes that to be the Chinese, but viewers all know better, of course. Gemma is to blame.

Elsewhere, Wendy is back in the picture; Unser could be in major trouble; and all members of SAMCRO say they are “all in” for whatever scheme Jax has in mind.

Did you catch the opener? If not, you can go watch Sons of Anarchy online right now!

Did you see the latest Tango? How about that Rumba?!? Even through 18 seasons, Dancing with the Stars remains a must-Tweet event.

ANNA KENDRICK Dishes To Glamour About Working & Tweeting

Anna Kendrick 1If you thought things were going to slow down for Anna Kendrick after ‘Twilight’ ended, think again! She’s had her busiest year yet with back-to-back projects. Anna dished to Glamour on her projects and even decoded some of her tweets. RELATED: Anna Kendrick reminds us why we love her on ELLE.

Anna’s making the most of her opportunities post-’Twilight,’ although she was doing well even while the franchise was ongoing. She was nominated for an Academy Award while the ‘Twilight’ movies were still coming out! Here are some excerpts from her Glamour interview.

Anna on managing back-to-back projects…
“It’s really fun. It’s like eating Cheerios every morning and then switching to Froot Loops. It’s exciting to eat Froot Loops!”

Anna on her “Dongs All Over the World” Saturday Night Live digital short…
“There was a moment when they worried it was too provocative. But even though it’s silly, there’s a pro-sex, feminist message in it somewhere. Like, if Justin Timberlake gets to say ‘Dick in a Box,’ then we get to say, ‘Dongs All Over the World.’”

Anna on her appearance…
“The thing is, my appearance – that’s never been my moneymaker. I’m fine being small. I’m fine being all the things I am. And I’m happy I’m not supposed to be on the 50 Most Beautiful list all the time, because that would be super f—king stressful.”

Anna on the complications of Hollywood life…
“Sometimes I just want to wear the same outfit for three days in a row. And I kind of can’t.”

Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) decodes her tweets for Glamour:
The tweet: “Thought for the day: If I were going to take a naked picture of myself, I would…clean my room first.”
The backstory: “So I go on Reddit and invariably end up clicking on ‘GoneWild’ posts. It’s always girls taking naked pictures in the mirror, and their room behind them is a disaster. If I were a guy, I would not be turned on. I would be like, ‘Make your bed!’”

The tweet: “Someone just looked at my food selection and said, ‘Aw, good for you.’ If she goes missing, I’ve been at home all day.”
The backstory: “You know when you order pasta and somebody says, ‘Good for you’? It’s this passive-aggressive underhanded compliment. I should be secure enough not to let it bother me, but I was like, ‘What the f–k is that supposed to mean?’”

LOL! Anna got honest with Glamour, too, as you can see. You can read her entire interview, as well as see more of her cool photo shoot, in the August issue of Glamour. It hits newsstands TODAY (Katie Holmes is on the cover).

Miley Cyrus to Remain Hospitalized for Indeterminate Period of Time

Poor Miley Cyrus.

The singer won’t be Twerking with any giant stuffed animals any time soon.

Following an allergic reaction to antibiotics on Tuesday, Cyrus was hospitalized and forced to cancel a couple stops on her Bangerz tour.

Now, according to E! News, it sounds like she won’t be entertaining fans for quite a long while.

The artist’s rep says “Miley was suffering from a sinus infection during her tour in N.C. a week ago [and] was prescribed the antibiotic cephalexin” as a result. 

The kind of allergic reaction she fell victim to this week often takes anywhere from 5 to 27 days to clear up.

“She will remain hospitalized and is under a doctor’s care until we see some improvement in her condition and is asking for your compassion and privacy at this time,” the rep added.

“Miley is devastated about missing shows and possibly disappointing her fans.”

Some of those fans, meanwhile, have actually accused Cyrus of faking her illness, an allegation that caused Miley to lash out via Twitter yesterday.

The singer has already postponed concert dates in Kansas City and St. Louis and it looks like she’ll be unable to perform for hometown fans tomorrow evening in Nashville.

An earlier report claimed Cyrus has been drinking, drugging and partying hard since the death of her dog and this lifestyle – not a sinus infection – was to blame for her illness, her medication and her subsequent reaction.

You may decide for yourself just what made Miley sick, but let’s all hope she’s up and shaking her butt again soon.

Is Gwyneth Paltrow ‘leaking rumors’ about Chris Martin’s alleged infidelities?

goop moses

In between paid/sponsored tweets for her new gig as a spokesperson for Restorsea, Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted this photo of Moses Bruce Paltrow Martin yesterday. Moses turned 8 years old yesterday, that’s why. It looks like he didn’t want to take the photo too, which is just funny. Perhaps he’s at the age where hugging his mom is a fate worse than death. I can hear the shriek of “Stop it, MAAAH-OM!!!” from here.

Anyway, it’s a good photo of Goop. And isn’t that the point? The Rebranding of Gwyneth Paltrow. Gwyneth, the hands-on earth mother who feeds her blonde children all-organic food (prepared lovingly by her own hand) as Bad Father Chris Martin fools around with SNL staffers and British socialites whilst eating Big Macs. That’s the impression I’m getting – that’s the story we’re supposed to be writing about. And according to Radar, Chris is getting wise to Goop’s PR game:

It may have been a “conscious uncoupling,” but the split between Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin is getting sloppy! According to an insider, Martin, 37, fears his ex is spreading vicious cheating rumors about him to he will appear “less sympathetic” and Paltrow, 41, plans to take the Coldplay frontman to the cleaners when it comes to squeezing spousal support from him, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

“Chris now believes that Gwyneth is leaking rumors about his alleged trysts in an effort to sully his image and make him look less sympathetic,” the source told Radar. “Gwyn is so angry that she’s threatening to turn the divorce ugly, saying she’s going to squeeze spousal support out of Chris, despite her multi-million dollar fortune.”

Together, Paltrow and Martin are worth a mind-blowing $280 million — but the source says the GOOP founder could take Martin for an extra $25 million!

“Gwyneth believes she deserves a settlement of at least a lump sum of $25 million from Chris because he is the breadwinner and their kids will live with her most of the time,” the source said. “She believes Chris should ‘man up’ and do the chivalrous thing. Friends are bracing for an ugly divorce showdown.”

However, the insider claims Paltrow is furious over the recent report that Martin hooked up with a Saturday Night Live assistant — while he and Paltrow were still together.

“Friends of the of the couple point to a major double standard, with Gwyneth having pushed for open marriage so she could pursue other men, but demanding absolute fidelity from Chris,” the source told Radar. “Chris is telling friends that Gwyneth was so self-involved that she believed she was more evolved than Chris and that she could better emotionally handle juggling out of marriage relationships with other men.”

[From Radar]

You know what? Radar ran that off the rails. Even though I’m loathe to give Gwyneth credit for anything, I honestly don’t believe she would be so gauche as to use her powerful publicist to spread rumors about Chris… in order to get more money in a divorce settlement. Now, would she try to turn the PR against Chris to protect her brand and her wholesome lifestyle image? That’s the question. I also don’t think Gwyneth offered Chris an open marriage because she wanted to fool around – I think that was Gwyneth trying to save her marriage in the face of Chris’s (alleged) infidelities.

Page Six: Chris Martin had affair with ‘Saturday Night Live’ staffer in 2011

wenn20370344

I didn’t go out of my way to find photos where Chris Martin is making weird faces. He just always makes weird faces whenever he’s photographed. That is, when he’s not shielding his face from the cameras and running away as fast as his little legs can carry him. Anyway, these “SURPRISE, everyone knows you were banging everything with a pulse” photos go well with this story from Page Six. Surprise, Chris Martin had an affair with an assistant on Saturday Night Live.

Following Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s “conscious uncoupling,” NBC is abuzz that the Coldplay singer had an affair with an assistant after appearing on “Saturday Night Live.” The couple, who announced their enlightened split last week after 10 years together, are said to have had an open marriage, and both had dalliances, according to sources.

NBC staff have been buzzing about an affair Martin had after appearing as the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live“ in 2011 with Coldplay. Martin also made an appearance on “Weekend Update” with Fred Armisen and Kristin Wiig as Garth & Kat.

One source tells us the girl in question was an assistant on the show, while another NBC source explained, “He had an affair with a woman who was backstage and was part of an entourage. Everyone was talking about it because he was openly flirting with her at one of the show after-parties.”

While a rep for Martin didn’t get back to us, he has strongly denied other rumored affairs. Paltrow’s spokesman said, “I don’t rep Chris so I cannot address those accusations.” There were also reports that Martin romanced Kate Bosworth in 2009, which were denied by his rep.

Meanwhile, there have been rumors of Goop creator Paltrow’s own dalliances. She has been linked to Miami billionaire Jeff Soffer in 2008, after attending the reopening of his Fontainebleau hotel, as well as entertainment lawyer Kevin Yorn. Paltrow, Soffer and Yorn have all denied the rumors.

Paltrow’s spokesman added, “We have time and time again denied any romantic relationship with Jeff Soffer and Gwyneth. Your source is either wrong or fake.” He added, “We will no longer be addressing the insane rumors that have been started by gossips.”

Meanwhile, Paltrow and Martin have been focused on pulling off one of the most amicable splits in showbiz. They embarked on a vacation together with family and friends as they released a statement about their “uncoupling” on her Goop Web site.

[From Page Six]

Wow, Gwyneth’s publicist sounds like he’s had a really awful couple of weeks. I think I know why – the story has gotten too big to control at this point. It’s not as easy as dropping a pregnancy rumor into one magazine and denying it to another magazine, just to see your client’s name in print. I actually think the goal was that Gwyneth should be the more sympathetic one, but every time someone mentions Chris’s alleged (or not so much) affairs, the report goes on to detail the rumors about Gwyneth’s affairs too.

For the record, I believe Page Six, even though their “sources” at NBC are not to be trusted in general (Page Six is in the NY Post, owned by Rupert Murdoch, who hates NBC and MSNBC). I’m just at the point where you could throw out any name for either Chris or Goop and I would probably believe that one of them banged that person.

Speaking of, I did buy this week’s People Magazine (the one with the Gwyneth cover) and I covered almost everything last week. There were some other details about Chris’s alleged affairs: People’s sources saw Chris at a NYC hotel with Kate Bosworth in 2009, and around the same time, he was hanging around the same hotel with… Kirsten Dunst!!! So, Kiki was in the mix too? I could see that. She’s dated lots of dudes in bands.
