Celeb Blind Item Who Has To Prove She’s Straight?

Blind-Folded-Man17Despite all the progress that’s been made in the last few years, it sounds like homophobia is still an issue in Hollywood. Read the deets after the break.

A popular tabloid which I don’t really like had a meeting the other day with the PR team from this former A list mostly movie actress who has probably dropped to A- since her franchise ended. She has not been able to score a big hit other than one which she would probably want to forget. The PR team is concerned because they feel like they don’t get enough positive publicity from the tabloid and the tabloid says they have a hard time coming up with stories that don’t include her female lover. At that point the PR team freaked out and said that our actress is straight and that how dare the tabloid and the tabloid people responded by saying, they meant nothing by it and will make sure they take the line that our actress is straight and that men love her but before they can give her any kind of sexiest woman alive thing, that they are going to need to see her with a boyfriend or have some type of male/female romance. They have no problems with our actress being gay, but if her people want her to be straight, then they need to come up with a boyfriend quickly or there will be very few story lines or articles that can be written. The PR team said they would come up with one and they even worked on a time,line for stories about the new couple.

Hmmm… I’ve got a couple of ideas about this one. How about you?

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.

11 Celebrities (Probably) Expecting a Baby in 2015

We’re not doctors here at The Hollywood Gossip.

Are Kylie Jenner’s lips real… or the result of some plastic surgery? We don’t know for sure.

Was Tori Spelling hospitalized last week due to a panic attack… or as a headline-generating move to garner ratings for her nauseating reality show? We can’t say for certain (even though she totally faked it.)

Are the following famous females expecting a baby in 2015? Don’t bet your home on it.

However, based on our research (i.e. they’re pregnancy announcements), our investigative resources (i.e. a calendar) and a few very basic math skills, it’s safe to assume the Palace will have major news to break in a few months, while Kim Kardashian will have another relative to pay an assistant to Tweet about.

From royalty to reality to pure beauty, here’s a look at various celebrities babies who will enter the world in early 2015:

Kate Middleton


Another royal baby is on the way! Kate Middleton and Prince William will welcome it into the world in April 2015.

Taylor Swift Album on Pace to Set 2014 Sales Record

This just in: people really like Taylor Swift.

As if the gushing reviews for her new album didn’t make that clear enough, consider the early sales figures:

It is already on pace, after barely one day of release, to move 1,000,000 copies in a week.

Taylor Swift Performs in Hollywood

This would make “1989” just the 19th record to EVER sell one million copies in seven days since Nielsen SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991.

It would also make the album the first in 2014 to do so, while making Swift the first singer to have three separate million-selling weeks.

In 2010, “Speak Now” moved 1.05 million copies and “Red” then sold 1.21 million two years later.

If “1989” crossed the one million plateau, Swift will notch the biggest sales week for an album since… her very own “Red” in 2012.

So clearly Swift being absolutely EVERYwhere these days – from closing down Hollywood Boulevard to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live… to appearing on The Voice last night – hasn’t made folks sick and/or tired of Taylor Swift.

Quite the opposite, in fact. It’s merely helped proved one very simply fact:

This is Taylor Swift’s universe. The rest of us are merely existing within it.

Halle Berry’s advice to keep the girls perky: ‘Always wear a bra, even to bed’

wenn21834186

Halle Berry has some diverse side projects, most of which I don’t keep up with. Sorry! I know she has a perfume line, and now I know she’s relaunching an older lingerie line, Scandale Paris. Halle gave an interview to Yahoo about her takeover of the 82-year-old lingerie line – apparently, she’s going to make it more affordable, but the bras and panties are still going to be good-quality. In this interview, she talks a lot about what her “French husband” Olivier Martinez taught her about dressing, plus some boob advice.

How her French husband changed her: “I have definitely changed as a result of being married to a French husband. French women would not put their sweats on and run out to the market. So I care more about what I wear out of the house, because if not, he calls me out on it. [French women] put a lot of energy into their outerwear, but also their underwear. They’re not going to get caught in an emergency room without being prepared.”

Her mother’s boob advice: “She said if I don’t want my boobs to hit my knees by the time I’m 30, always wear a bra, even to bed.”

She’s not using her sex symbol image to move bras: “I don’t think I’m using my sex symbol image, if that’s what you want to call it, to sell the line. I’m not the model, so no I’m not trying to use that part of me at all.”

Aging in Hollywood: “I think both actors and actresses face this. It’s not just women. As an actor you face having to age and redefine yourself. The roles you were able to play before, you can’t play anymore. So you have to adapt and play a different role. And as actresses, we need to accept that we’re not always going to be the sexy ingenue, but hopefully we get better with age.”

Whether Nahla has seen her movies: “She hasn’t seen any of my movies, so she doesn’t quite understand what I do for a living. The beauty of our lifestyle is my daughter doesn’t see me as any different than anyone else. I try very hard to be like other mothers.”

Gossip about her private life: “I’ve learned that I can’t care about what people say about me because caring is too stressful and too hurtful,” she says. “It’s all just fodder and nonsense,” before reconsidering that her new role as an executive might mean that ugly incidents like a 2012 fight between Martinez and Aubry might affect her bottom line. “It can start to matter and affect you when you think about being a brand. People want know that they can trust you. But I’m happy to say none of the negative things that come from those people hiding behind their computers — I call them the haters — have permeated me through my career.”

[From Yahoo]

I think it’s extremely cold to basically say that your husband isn’t going to physically assault your ex-boyfriend anymore because it will affect your business. Like, if Halle wasn’t trying to make herself into a household “brand,” then sh-t would still be going down with her custodial arrangement with Gabriel Aubry. That’s what she’s saying. I suppose that makes me a HATER.

As for the boob advice… I’ve heard that before. I feel like a lot of women of a certain age were told to do that, to wear a bra at all times, even while you’re sleeping. I HATE sleeping in bras, so that’s probably why my boobs don’t look as good as Halle’s.

Benedict Cumberbatch talks equality, marriage, babies & ‘trysts’ with Elle UK

bendy5

This is full-on Cumberp0rn. Elle UK is our supplier, our dealer, our enabler of all of our Cumberfixes. I showed everyone the Elle UK special cover featuring Benedict Cumberbatch weeks ago, but Elle UK has finally released more of their editorial, plus some quotes, plus TWO videos. I can’t even describe how beautiful Benedict looks in this editorial. And the videos take the hotness to the next-level. HIS HAIR IS SO GOOD. His skin looks great too. And whoever styled him knows what they’re doing – I would even suggest to Cumby that he should hire this stylist full time for his Oscar campaign. First, here are some interview highlights:

We spent the day with Benedict, 38, rambling around Hampstead Heath, riding his motorbike (a little recklessly) through London, and drinking cocktails at the Chiltern Firehouse. And we talked to him about everything: his work, his childhood, his friendships, his family, love life, Sherlock (of course) and babies. We’ve had better days at work. We just can’t think of them right now.

On his next film The Imitation Game, in which he plays WW2 code-breaker and founder of modern computer science Alan Turing, he says: “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.”

On his love life, he is sweetly candid. “It’s a really double-edged sword,” he says, about dating post-Sherlock fame. “You know, you discover why people find you attractive – in a relationship or a tryst – and if it’s just to have a go on you or try you out, then I can smell that a mile off.”

It hasn’t made him cynical though. He is most definitely looking for the fairytale: “I hope I’m looking back and going: ‘Oh, that was the moment I got on with life and realised 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.” He’s a feminist too, you know.

[From Elle UK]

Of course he uses a word like “tryst” to describe some sexy one-night-stands or flings. Sigh… a tryst with Bendy. Lovely. As for the “fairytale” of real love, otter-style… he’s actually learned to speak in more opaque terms. I remember a time when he would just come right out and say “I want to married, I want kids, hopefully soon.” He’s changed a bit there. But he still made my heart flutter. You can see more of Elle UK’s package here.

This is my new favorite video – it’s Benedict looking gorgeous and playing a word-association game with Elle. Otter? “Me.” Hiddleston? “Tom.”

And this is the behind-the-scenes video of his photoshoot. This is just straight-up Cumberp0rn.

LOVE THE FEMINISM, CUMBER.

Paul Rudd Helps Take Down Homophobe in Dallas Airport?!

We may not get to see Paul Rudd as Ant Man until July of 2015, but if the latest Internet rumor is to be believed, the beloved funny man is already showing off his heroic side.

A video showing a young man shouting homophobic slurs and then physically assaulting another passenger in a Dallas airport has been making the rounds online since last week.

But it was only today that some eagle-eyed YouTubers noticed that one of guys who jumps in to subdue the a-hole looks an awful lot like Paul Rudd.

As to whether or not that’s actually Rudd, well…there’s been a good deal of debate.

It’s impossible to tell from the blurry screen grabs if that’s Rudd or just another handsome, bookish dude you’d happily take home to mom.

Paul Rudd Screen Shot

Several websites expressed their doubts, and Huffington Post even went so far as to contact a woman who had tweeted about seeing Rudd earlier in the day, to see if his outfit matched the one he was wearing in the video.

She replied that he was, in fact, wearing a blazer and plaid shirt, but since that’s pretty much the standard Paul Rudd uniform, it doesn’t really prove anything.

If it turns out to be Rudd, this could be the best unexpected heartthrob hero moment since Ryan Gosling broke up that fight in NYC. 

Your move, DiCaprio. You better hope some kittens fall into a well or something, ASAP.

UPDATE: Sadly, it’s been confirmed that P-Rudd was not in Dallas the day of the incident. Sigh. Makes sense when you think about it. If it had been Rudd, he could’ve just blinded the dude with a spritz of Sex Panther.

Really? Yes, I do. Um...I'm sorry, it's the...it's the pleats. Mm. It's actually an optical...

Veronica: Mr. Burgundy, you have a massive erection.
Rob Burgundy: Really? Yes, I do. Um…I’m sorry, it’s the…it’s the pleats. Mm. It’s actually an optical illusion. It’s the pattern on the pants. It’s not flattering in the crotchal region. I’m actually taking them back right now. Taking them back to the pants store. Well I’m gonna go walk it off. Don’t act like you’re not impressed!


Veronica: Mr. Burgundy, you have a massive erection. Rob Burgundy: Really? Yes, I do. Um…I’m sorry, it’s the…it’s the pleats. Mm….

Mark McDaniel Defended By Daughter-in-Law: His Child Molester Past is Irrelevant!

Mark McDaniel, June Shannon’s child molester boyfriend and the center of major controversy, can count on his daughter-in-law in his corner if nothing else.

To hear her tell it, just because he molested a little girl years ago – including June’s daughter Anna Shannon – doesn’t mean that he’s a bad person.

Tell that to Anna and/or Sugar Bear and/or the State of Georgia.

  • Mark McDaniel Mug Shot
  • June Shannon Mug Shot

Peaches McDaniel tried defending her father-in-law on Facebook, adding in a defiant tone, “Peoples [sic] past are completely irrelevant to the present.”

“if you are going to judge someone by their past, look at your own first,” Peaches adds. “Michaels [sic] dad is an amazing man, as well an amazing father.”

McDaniel is a registered sex offender after serving 10 years in prison for allegedly (or not allegedly, actually) one of June’s daughters to have oral sex with him.

June and husband Sugar Bear recently called it quits, after which she started dating McDaniel, who was her boyfriend from before he went to prison.

For molesting one of her daughters. Did we mention that part?

TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo last week, announcing the reality show featuring June’s family and named after her little daughter won’t return.

The young star herself was recently exposed to the molester.

Shannon and Mark visited Peaches after she gave birth last month, which is when McDaniel was pictured with his hands on Honey Boo Boo’s back.

Wonder how Sugar Bear feels about that revelation.

Reality TV Family


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

Mama June previously denied that she’s seen McDaniel since he was released from jail, but the photo evidence – and her split from Sugar Bear – tell a different story.

Now she’s out of a marriage and a show, while her 20-year-old girl has to accept the fact that her mom is dating her molester and touching Honey Boo Boo.

It’ll make you shiver if you think about it any more.

Mama June Shannon is dating the man who molested her daughter 12 years ago

wenn20212427

TMZ has been getting all of the scoops on Mama June. The first bombshell is that June seemed to be spending a lot of time with a convicted child molester following her recent split with Sugar Bear, her now-estranged husband. At the time, there were stories that Sugar Bear was fooling around, but now it seems like June was getting involved with a man named Mark McDaniel. TMZ had a photo of them together and they claimed it was taken recently. McDaniel is currently on the sex-offender registry because he molested a young girl, and he only recently completed a 10-year prison sentence following his conviction for child molestation.

As it turns out, the girl McDaniel molested was June’s daughter Anna. Anna, now 20 years old, confirmed that McDaniel had molested her when she was eight and that she “would feel hurt” if June was really with McDaniel now. Anna told People: “I’m just confused. I’m hearing one story from Mama and another one from someone else.” June insists – publicly and privately – that she’s not dating McDaniel. After June’s explicit denials, TMZ has been running stories and photos of June and McDaniel together – they apparently went house-hunting recently and June bought McDaniel a used Nissan and had it delivered to his house.

In the midst of all of this drama, TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. It seems like TLC didn’t even wait to see hard evidence of June’s relationship with McDaniel, or maybe TLC executives just took TMZ’s info at face value. Or maybe they know more than they’re letting on. Child Services has also been contacted. It doesn’t seem like this is the kind of situation where fans of the show are going to rally around this family, and there won’t be some Duck Dynasty-esque politicization of the situation. I think we can all agree: if June is with this guy – and it’s looking pretty clear that she is – this is a really awful situation and June’s children need to be safe.
