Amber Rose filed for divorce from Wiz Khalifa after just one year

Amber Rose

Love is dead. Again! It’s only been a month since Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose revealed her trashy wedding dress on their 1-year anniversary. Now it’s over when it only just began. Amber filed for divorce yesterday. Right after the news broke, she did a ringless pap walk and accessorized with a subtle smile. *sob*

Fans are going crazy right now on Wiz’s Instagram page and calling the divorce “a lie.” This split comes as a great surprise from a gossip point of view. These two crazy kids usually make goo-goo eyes at each other on red carpets. He seemed to worship her, and she seemed thrilled to be with someone who paid attention (unlike *cough* Kanye) to her. TMZ says there is no hope, and Amber wants full custody of 1-year-old Sebastian. There’s no separation and no empty threat. Amber simply filed the papers. Damn, this marriage went downhill fast:

Amber Rose has filed for divorce from husband-of-1-year Wiz Khalifa … and she’s gunning for full custody of their kid … TMZ has learned.

In the divorce docs — obtained by TMZ — Amber says they split on Monday and cites irreconcilable differences.

Amber is asking for full legal and physical custody of their 1-year-old son Sebastian. She’s willing to give Wiz visitation.

And this is interesting. Amber acknowledges there’s a prenup, which you would think would work in Wiz’ favor, but she says it’s valid … presumably, she’s not challenging it. The docs say the prenup provides spousal support.

As for why they split, there’s been a buzz over the last few days of infidelity, but there’s no mention of it in the papers.

We got video of Amber with some guy Tuesday in Bev Hills. Our photog asks her if Wiz is keeping a close eye on Nick Cannon — there are rumors they’ve hooked up, but she’s mum.

Sources connected with the couple say the split is bitter.

[From TMZ]

Yep, the vibe I’m getting is that someone cheated. People have taken notice at how Nick Cannon recently repped a book and tv deal for Amber. Wouldn’t that coupling be awkward? Mariah Carey would completely lose it if Amber was Nick’s jumpoff. Because Mariah is a diamond, and Amber is a rhinestone. Oh, that would be good gossip.

Nick’s shutting down the rumor mill. He told TMZ that he and Amber are “strictly professional.” Nick says he got wind of Amber and Wiz’s marital strife last week. They bonded over their mutual sadness. Uh-huh. For what it’s worth, TMZ says that Amber and Wiz have both accused the other of infidelity. Crazy. Who has time to cheat on their spouse when they have a toddler running amuck?

Chris Evans: ‘I’m a romantic’ who will start ‘dripping sweat’ if you talk to me

I really like this new Chris Evans. I dig the other version too, of course. This new one is super fun. Chris is promoting his directorial debut, Before We Go, at TIFF, and there are so many new interviews to play with. The most striking aspect of his presence at this festival is how he’s clearly enjoying himself. He loves talking about his baby. He loves the huge responsibility of millions of investor dollars resting upon his well-formed shoulders. It’s all pleasantly unexpected to watch. Dude used to freak out and flee press conferences in his Fantastic Four days.

Here are a few conjoined interviews from USA Today and Vanity Fair. Check out Chris’ hilarious faux-tantrum when he greets one of the journos:

The first moment: “Was it terrible?” Evans asks. He dives on the crimson couch. “Don’t lie to meeee!”

The director’s chair: “The responsibility is so much greater. It almost doesn’t matter the budget. It could be $3 million, it could be $300 million.”

Directing his own acting makes him happy: For the first time, Evans was in complete control of his performance. Tell Evans you actually prefer the way he directed himself, and he grins. “You know what? So did I. Can I say that? Is that horrible? It’s so awful to say … These are the interviews you give that you’re going to regret.” But, “as an actor you have an idea in your head how you think a scene should go. And you give your variations of performance. And then when you see the final product they don’t always use the takes you thought would work. And that’s fine. With this, I’m in charge of the edit.”

Why a romcom? “It almost feels like movies nowadays have to be extreme novelty, like some weird indie festival or spectacle, like Godzilla. What happened to Sleepless in Seattle? Just do a simple movie well.”

Is he a hopeless romantic? “I am a romantic. I’ve had great nights before where just some wonderfully romantic night happens spontaneously, unpredictably. And the next day you try to tell your friends and it just doesn’t cut it. I hope everyone has those experiences where — whether it’s a date that lasted all night or a date that lasted 5 seconds at a train station — moments that were so personal and so special, it was hard to explain to somebody else.”

The nerves are still present: “I have no problem talking to people, but when it happens in the face of 30 people, for some reason I have this really awful insecurity response, where you just start dripping sweat. Just literally turning into a sauna.”

[From USA Today and Vanity Fair]

Can I send a love letter to Chris’ therapist? “Dear Sir or Madam, thank you so much for restoring the Cap A** to operable condition. I require instruction on how to best recharge his batteries because this can’t last forever …”

Should we bag on Chris for wistfully appreciating little movies like Sleepless in Seattle over the massively budgeted action flicks, like say, The Avengers? I’ll let you decide the answer. Both types of movies can co-exist peacefully, but it’s true that cinema hasn’t experienced a good romcom wave in over a decade.

Here’s a clip of the Vanity Fair interview (sorry, no wandering hands this time) where Chris talks about his sweaty sauna pits. Does that turn you on at all? I’m there.

Brandi Glanville Launches Wine Brand, Likely Plans to Sample a LOT of Product

Step aside, or drink up, Ramona Singer. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Brandi Glanville is launching her own brand of white wine, according to reports.

Singer, 57, and her famed Ramona Pinot Grigio have had the Housewives wine market to themselves … until now! There’s a new boozy babe in town!

Brandi Drinking

“I need your help I can’t think of a name for my wine,” Glanville Tweeted. “It’s a Chardonnay coming out very soon and I cannot come up with anything I love!”

Responses ranged from vulgar to hilarious, while Brandi Glanville noted that she suggested “STFU and Drink” but alas, the “distributors said no.”

Which is really a shame.

Brandi has turned Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes‘ home-wrecking affair into a career, landing on the Bravo show and writing a best-selling memoir.

Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders made the New York Times best-seller list, and she remains one of the most popular Housewives.

She’s got another book on the way, too. “It should be out by January or February of next year,” she said recently. “Mamma’s got to pay the rent.”

More like Mamma’s gotta support her expensive wine habit by trading off her reputation for drinking and profiting from her own brand of the delicious beverage.

‘Murica.

Brandi hates to be sober. She’ll tell you all about it.

Macklemore is obsessed with his kitten, Cairo: does this make you like him more?

mack1

We haven’t discussed anything involving Macklemore since he dressed up as some kind of weirdly anti-Semitic caricature during a show in Seattle back in May. I guess he was keeping his head down and letting the controversy blow over, which isn’t the worst crisis management. I actually prefer the whole “issue a lengthy statement explaining how you were wrong and then STFU for a few months” school of crisis management.

I also enjoy when celebrities blatantly use their pets to make people like them more. Two months ago (around the same time as the anti-Semitic thing), Macklemore adopted a kitten with his long-time girlfriend. The past two months have been filled with endless cat love from Macklemore. He is a Cat Man. And Cairo the tabby has stolen his heart. Not content to simply post endless photos and videos of Cairo on his Instagram page, he also made Cairo her own IG.

So, yes… this is just a post for photos of Macklemore and Cairo. And I love it. And nothing says “all is forgiven” like a man in love with a cat. For her part, Cairo seems like she’s enjoying her new place as the most important person in Macklemore’s house. Just so.

Pippa Middleton gave her first-ever TV interview to Matt Lauer: epic or blah?

121418PCN_Pippa02

I watch the first few minutes of the Today Show every weekday morning, just to see what the big stories are, what news broke overnight and sometimes to get a lead on whatever I’m going to be writing about during the day. This morning, Matt Lauer was not in NYC – he had flown to London overnight to interview a mystery person, and he teased the hell out of the interview. Guess who it was? Pippa Middleton. Yeah. This is her first sit-down TV interview ever, and it follows her successful 3000-mile bike ride across America to raise awareness (and money) for charity. Here’s the preview Today released:

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Matt Lauer embarrassed me as an American in that clip. Matt, Pippa is not royalty! You don’t have to get THAT excited about it. Her sister waity’d for nine years for the ring, but Pippa does not have a title and she keeps getting fired from jobs and failing as some kind of party-planning book-writer. Let’s take it down a notch. That being said, I’ll totally watch the interview next week. I really wanted Matt to STFU so Pippa could say more than two sentences. Anyway, do you think the Palace approved of this? Allegedly, Kate and the Queen conspired to shut down Pippa’s American book tour a few years ago. I really hope Pippa has broken the royal shackles of press-embargos.

“If one would like to speak to the press, one should contact a journalist.” #PippaTips

Frances Cobain to Lana Del Rey: Don’t ‘romanticize the death of young musicians’

Lana Del Rey

Frances Bean Cobain is a rare breed of celebrity spawn. She mostly keeps to herself and lives a recluse-type life. She’s a bit spoiled and is a trust fund kid, but I give her a huge pass because …. Courtney Love. Frances seems remarkably well adjusted for someone who grew up with Courtney as her mother. Frances rarely gets papped, which is why the photos I’m using are from 2012 (with one vintage bonus shot).

Francis is part of the Coachella crowd, so she’s not perfect, but she’s so low key. She tweets a lot about Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs, which seems about right for her age group. She occasionally gets fed up with young starlets like Kendall Jenner, whom Frances labelled “a f*ing idiot and self involved.

Frances took to Twitter again on a new rant, but this time, it’s personal. Lana Del Rey has been promoting her new album, Ultraviolence, and she’s been invoking the memory of Kurt Cobain. Lana considers Kurt a hero, and she’s been talking about how she wishes she was dead already. Frances can’t take it anymore:

Frances Cobain

Is this a case of Frances having a point, or should she STFU and let Lana run her mouth? Frances sometimes pops off on people without thinking, but this topic is one where she has room to talk. Frances knows the pain of not knowing her dad, and she knows there is nothing at all glamourous about death.

Lana herself is said to be very upset that the Guardian even printed her quotes. Lana doesn’t says she was misquoted, but she accuses the journo of “hiding sinister ambitions and angles.” Lana also says she didn’t want to do an interview with the Guardian at all, and she felt all of the questions were “leading.” Um, what?

Britney Spears’ team finally admits that she’s rarely singing live in Las Vegas

wenn20968823

I spent WAY too long reading this epic Britney Spears article yesterday afternoon. Seriously, once I finished reading it (and I skimmed some parts of it!) it felt like an hour had passed and I was thirsty and disoriented. So, if you have some time set aside and you want to read a really intensive article about Britney’s Las Vegas residency (an article that barely quotes Britney herself), go here. The biggest headline out of this piece is that even Britney’s handlers admit that she’s not singing live. Durr. But there are a few other gems too. Some highlights:

Journalists always bring Britney food: That’s what the interviewers do. They come and they give her food. Yesterday had been her 32nd birthday. Mario Lopez had brought cupcakes. (The month before, a foreign journalist had asked her what her birthday plans were. “Probably working,” she’d said. His response: “You’re so American.”)

The X-Factor debacle: She was terrible at the banter and bitchy sound bites that are so much the matter of those talent shows. Britney came up in a time of CDs, one of her managers, Adam Leber, reminded me, before interaction with fans was so unpredictable and needy and could come at you through your phone. But it wasn’t just that, really. She told her publicist, Jeff Raymond, that watching other people perform made her wistful. She wasn’t ready to hang it up in her early 30s and assume the bizarre position of grande dame judge, trotted out for her wisdom rather than her talent, like Liza Minnelli or an errant Pussycat Doll. Britney quit before Simon Cowell could fire her so she could quit before he could fire her.

Putting together Piece of Me: Britney’s contract for this show, which pays a reported $15 million (about $300,000 per show), demands that she create a spectacle that’s bigger than anything she’d done before, so that people who had seen her live before would still be tempted to come. (Celine’s first residency featured 53 dancers and a bunch of clowns, impractical to take on the road, to say the least.) Fine by Britney. She told Baz Halpin, the show’s creative director, that she wanted elements: fire, water, snow. She wanted a jungle theme, which is something she always wants. Halpin loved the idea and gave her a tree to jump off of in the middle of the third act; it’s 56,000 pounds and 32 feet high and takes six people to move.

Whether she sings live: Our expectations of a woman in her 30s who has built two people in her body might be a little bit of a reach. “To put on the show that she puts on, it’s virtually impossible to sing the entire time and do what she does,” Adam Leber told me. “She’s singing on every song, basically, when she has the ability to sing. There’s no way you can dance for 90 minutes straight and sing the entire time.”

Her conservatorship: Sources close to Caesars, which means that they work at Caesars, tell me: that the company had insisted on the conservatorship just in case, and that it must remain throughout her contract.

[From Medium.com]

It’s actually a really interesting, well-researched piece, but it’s verbose. And then some. I found out some new stuff, including the fact that Britney still pays Kevin Federline $25,000 a month in child support. I learned that Britney hates crowds and that she has an excessive amount of managers and “staff.” I also learned that she really likes her backup dancers and she enjoys being on stage with them. As far as the “Britney doesn’t sing live” thing… well, that’s nothing new. It is interesting that Britney’s team is admitting it now. So, why are people going to Britney’s show again? To see her dance around (badly) and lip-sync?

Angelina Jolie would run for political office ‘if I thought I’d be effective’

wenn21332633

Angelina Jolie has really been kicking ass during the Maleficent promotional tour, hasn’t she? And we haven’t even had an American premiere yet – just think about how good it’s going to be in the next few weeks. Anyway, nothing can really compare to Angelina telling Gwyneth Paltrow-esque privileged moms to STFU, but her interview with Good Morning America does have its moments. First, some media-business stuff: I think it’s interesting that Angelina went to GMA with her first morning show interview. She used to give her first interviews to The Today Show and Ann Curry. But Today jettisoned Curry, so now they don’t get her exclusives. It’s interesting, isn’t it?

As for the interview… George Stephanopoulos asks Angelina is she’d ever consider running for public office. What’s interesting is that you can tell that she’s actually considered it at some point, but she says: “You know, if I thought I’d be effective, I would. But I’m not sure if I would ever be taken seriously in that way, and be able to be effective.” Here’s the video:

She also talks about finding Maleficent’s voice and her double mastectomy, saying that she was surprised by the outpouring of support she received:

“I really didn’t know how people would react. I wasn’t worried about it, but I didn’t expect there to be so much support. And I was very moved by it…It’s connected me so much to other families, other women… And you know, and now when I meet people, we don’t talk as much about films, but we talk about their children, or women’s choices, or their wives. It’s been a really beautiful journey.”

[Via E!]

As for the Running In Heels thing… I hate to say it, but she’s right. Her popularity has increased so much over the past year, because her double mastectomy made her a powerful APOLITICAL advocate for women’s health. If she came out and had to align with a political party and answer questions not just about her past, but about all of the issues facing this country and the world, well… yeah, it would get bad for her. So I think what’s she’s doing now is the best path for her: continuing to expand her advocacy and humanitarian work in an apolitical way.

Angelina Jolie thinks wealthy, privileged moms should stop complaining

FFN_Jolie_Angelina_FF13FF8_032914_51368501

There are some new photos of Angelina Jolie in LA, but we don’t have them – you can see them here. She’s wearing a black lace sack dress. She should really invest in a clothing line or an LA boutique that makes/sells only sack dresses. The store shall be named… Sackporium. Anyway, Angelina is in full promotional mode for Maleficent, and wouldn’t you know, she got pulled into the mommy wars. To her credit, Angelina never pulls the “that’s my private life, I’m not going to talk about my children” line because she’s self-aware enough to know that ship has sailed. But she has no qualms about pulling the “I refuse to complain about any part of my life because rich, privileged mommies need to STFU about everything” line.

Angelina on the stress of motherhood: “I’m not a single mom with two jobs trying to get by every day. I have much more support than most people, most women in this world. And I have the financial means to have a home and health care and food. My kids, they’re here upstairs,” she added, pointing toward the ceiling of the hotel conference room where she was grilled by reporters.

Time off: “When I feel I’m doing too much, I do less, if I can. And that’s why I’m in a rare position where I don’t have to do job after job. I can take time when my family needs it.”

Controlling her schedule: “I can say I can only get into the (editing) room after the kids are in school, and I have to be back for dinner, and they’re coming for lunch.”

Stop complaining: “I actually feel that women in my position, when we have all at our disposal to help us, shouldn’t complain. Consider all the people who really struggle and don’t have the financial means, don’t have the support, and many people are single raising children. That’s hard.”

[From the NYDN]

The NYDN was trying to make it sound like Jolie was directly slamming NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s partner Chirlane McCray’s recent comments – go here to read. But I read the McCray stuff and I think she was just being honest about how she had always defined herself as a working woman and when her children came in her 40s, she didn’t know how to redefine herself as a mom and she fought against the confines of motherhood (and society’s definition of what motherhood should be). McCray wasn’t whining about motherhood, she was talking honestly about the work-versus-motherhood struggle that many women feel but rarely discuss, because ALL women are supposed to define themselves solely through their children, right?

As for Angelina’s comments…I agree with her. I get exhausted with this current generation of celebrity moms, mommy bloggers and “branded” mothers who act like they invented mothering and who malign, guilt and shame other women for making different choices. Personally, I kind of feel like Angelina is tapping her nose and pointing in Gwyneth Paltrow’s direction.

LeAnn Rimes & Eddie’s first VH1 promo released: sad, cute or just awkward?

wenn20926404

Well, the first promos for LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian’s VH1 show are out and… I don’t know how to feel, y’all. The promos aren’t assorted trailers of highlights from all the exciting things that are going to happen during the show. The promos are just three scenes, pretty straight-forward, of LeAnn and Eddie in assorted situations:

Get More:

It just feels sort of sad. I guess we’re supposed to think it’s cute that (“aw”) LeAnn wants a baby and Eddie keeps saying no. But it just seems sad. LeAnn seems to be thinking about babies a lot and Eddie is with his friends and all they’re talking about is how easy it is to pick up girls? Eddie seems almost wistful. But instead of, say, believing that Eddie is clueless about single life, I’m just reminded of the fact that Eddie has never had a problem picking up women. He had affairs when he was married to Brandi and I’m sure he’s fooling around on LeAnn. Eddie knows this too, so he had to utilize his acting skillz to pretend that he’s not good at picking up ladies.

Other notes… I’m kind of surprised by the “quality” of the production, I guess. For some reason, I thought the production value would be way down, like it would be a lot of sketchy digital crap trying to look auteurish. But this is Kardashian-level reality show production value. Which just goes to show you… this is not a reality show. These are little scripted vignettes meant to evoke sympathy. Well, I do feel sorry for LeAnn a little bit. So… that was the goal?

Just a note about the alleged (or not so much) Facebook and Pinterest accounts under the name Eveleigh Rose that many think are just LeAnn’s ghost accounts. I agree that it does sound like LeAnn, and who knows? It probably is her. It reminds me very much of the controversy around the Instagram account which was under the name “Eddie Cibrian” in January/February 2013. It was so obviously done by LeAnn, and once everybody discovered it, they started trolling the account to the point where “Eddie” took it down. So, if LeAnn is running some ghost accounts… just let her. She needs to channel that energy somewhere. And if we know where she’s channeling it, it’s funny for the rest of it.
