Thomas Menino Dies: Beloved Boston Mayor Was 71

Thomas M. Menino – the longest-serving mayor in the history of the city of Boston – died today at the age of 71.

Thomas Menino

Menino was elected to his post back in 1993. He retired earlier this year after overseeing a decades-long urban renewal project that revitalized the appearance and identity of the city in which he was born and raised.

Just two months after stepping down in January of 2014, Menino announced that he was battling an advanced form of cancer that had spread to his liver and lymph nodes.

Menino’s most notable achievement in recent years may have been serving as a source of strength and guidance for frightened citizens in the wake of the Boston marathon bombing of 2013.

“Bold, big-hearted, and Boston strong, Tom was the embodiment of the city he loved and led for more than two decades,” said President Obama in a statement issued earlier today.

“As Boston’s longest-serving mayor, Tom helped mane his hometown the vibrant, welcoming, world-class place it is today. His legacy lives on in every neighborhood he helped revitalize, every school he helped turn around, and every neighborhood he helped make a safer, better place to live.”

Menino leaves behind his wife Angela, as well as two children and six grandchildren.

Groom Carries Bride Into Wedding Reception, Drops Her on Face

Talk about taking the plunge!

There have been many viral wedding fails over the years, from melted sculptures that look like penises to a drunk bride ordering Taco Bell on her wedding night.

Okay, granted. That second example wasn’t a fail. It was totally awesome!

But the following video can’t exactly be classified as a success, not when it features a groom sprinting into his party while carrying his bride in his arms… and then tripping and falling… and dropping his newly-betrothed flat on her face.

It looks very painful, but it doesn’t appear as if anyone was injured in the mishap. So it’s okay to watch and laugh!

Heck, it’s okay to watch and laugh twice. That’s some funny stuff!

And of you think that footage is awkward, just check out these wedding photos!

Get a Room!

Okay, you probably have a room. Well… wait until later and continue this then!

Khloe Kardashian and French Montana: Still BFFs!

When Khloe Kardashian and French Montana broke up last month it surprised literally no one.

They were an odd couple from the start and it was widely rumored that French cheated on Khloe with just about every woman he came in contact with while they were dating.

But while the relationship has been over for weeks, the reality TV version of Khloe and French won’t debut until next week when Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons hits the E! network. 

So, as further evidence that it’s really weird to live your life with a 10-week broadcast delay, Kourtney has been forced to talk about French while promoting her 117th E! reality series.

Instead of trash-talking the Q-list rapper like we had hoped, Khloe says she and French are totally still besties!

“I love memories,” Khloe says when asked about Montana. “I still talk to him. There’s no bad blood or anything.”

Discussing her feelings about French appearing on her new show, Khloe offered this surprising comment:

“I think it’s cool. I like that people get to see a part of our relationship. I don’t think it’s fair to judge people by appearance or what you think you know about them.”

She then went on to fondly reminisce about their trip to South Africa and gush about how French pushes her to do things she “probably wouldn’t do” on her own. Seriously.

So, who has “next week” in the “When will Khloe and French get back together?” pool? We’re guessing it’ll happen before then.

Really, Khloe Kardashian and French Montana?!? The couple poses here with a machine gun online.

Juan Pablo Galavis Used Nikki Ferrell for Fame, Relevance: Shocking Report!

It remains stunning, yet true: Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell have broken up.

Despite their constant fighting and nagging and pestering – along with Juan Pablo’s refusal to ever tell Nikki that he loved her – the couple called it quits earlier this month.

Who dumped whom and why

Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell Kiss

As anyone who has ever watched Couples Therapy online can attest to, Nikki clearly wanted to settle down and Juan Pablo did not. (Nikki also wanted to be with a man who loved and respected her. Crazy, right?!?)

So, considering their obvious issues and a lack of reciprocated feelings, why did this relationship even last as long as it did?

“The main reason Juan stayed with Nikki was to spite all the haters who thought they would break up, and to stay relevant so he could promote himself,” an insider tells Us Weekly, adding of Juan Pablo’s career aspirations:

“Juan wants to be a soccer or baseball commentator, and also a manager for high-profile Latin athletes.”

Conversely, Ferrell was in it due to actual affection for the former Bachelor star.

“Juan did say ‘I love you’ to Nikki, but only a couple of times,” the source says of Ferrell. “She wanted [him] to say it every time they spoke, and he couldn’t do that.”

Location was also an issue for Galavis and Ferrell, as Juan Pablo wanted Nikki to move to Miami and never considered going to Kansas.

“She couldn’t get him to compromise at all,” the mole concludes. “Everything Nikki wanted, he didn’t.”

That sort of thing is difficult to overcome in a relationship, it’s true.

So while Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis lick their wounds from this split, there is one person smiling right now: Chris Soules.

The Bachelor bar for this attractive single – who will start handing out roses to desperate women in January on ABC – has been set very, very, very VERY low by Juan Pablo.

Kylie Jenner Compares Lips With Khloe Kardashian, Flips Off Haters With Bruce Jenner

As you might already know, Kylie Jenner is obsessed with Instagram. So when there’s some drama in her life (which is always) she addresses it by sharing pics with her millions of followers.

This week she tackled two rumors with a pair of seemingly run-of-the mill family photos:

  • Khloe and Kylie Photo
  • Kylie and Bruce Jenner: Eff Off!

The biggest Kylie kontroversy of the moment involves her rapidly changing face.

That may be why on the same day that Kylie addressed lip injection rumors on Twitter, she posted the lip-centric pic of her  and Khloe on the left.

Of course, despite her last name, Kylie is a Kardashian at heart, so naturally she’s involved in more than one controversy at the moment.

The other major family scandal of recent weeks also involves surgical rumors.

Chatter about the possibility of a Bruce Jenner sex change has been around for months, but the rumor mill has been going harder than ever this week after Bruce was spotted wearing nail polish on a golf outing.

Perhaps that’s why Kylie and Bruce decided to show their unpainted middle fingers to the haters.

If Kylie was trying to send a message with these pics then she might be a PR genius. Of course, it’s possible that we’re reading way too much into her latest posts. 

Maybe the girl just really, really loves Instagram.

When Mama Isn’t Home Feel Good Video Of The Day

when mama isn't homeFor all you mothers out there, ever wonder what really goes on when you leave your husband at home with the kids? The Bauer Birds decided to make a youtube video showing what they do, at least, when mom isn’t there. They simply titled the video ‘When Mama Isn’t Home.’ RELATED: Another feel-good video is LeVar Burton reading ‘Go The F— To Sleep’ (NSFW).

Looks like they have fun making some great music. Love how they use a kitchen appliance (the oven door) as an instrument- LOL. I’m guessing “Mama” was just glad she still had an oven door by the time she got back after watching this video ;). The song is catchy, though. Gotta give credit where credit’s due :).

Kim Kardashian works so hard: ‘I don’t think reality TV gets the respect it deserves’


Kim Kardashian made an appearance at the Re/code conference on Monday in California. She sat down for a Q&A session and she ended up talking about her branded video game (which is still making crazy money), her favorite phones and her reality show. You can read the full coverage here – there were plenty of eye-roll moments, but all in all… she has been ahead of the social media curve most of her adult life, you know? Some highlights:

When asked why people don’t take her seriously: “I don’t know. That is a question that sometimes I get frustrated with. I pride myself with my work ethic, and I work really hard. I think when people hear that I might have gotten success off of a ‘reality show,’ they take that as a negative. We’re in our tenth season. We have more episodes than ‘I Love Lucy.’ We have so many milestones that people don’t think about.”

She works really hard, you guys: “I wake up every single day at 6 am, and go to the gym, and get my daughter up, feed my baby, film all day, sometimes don’t finish until 8 or 9 pm, and that’s every single day, six days a week, for five months straight while we’re filming … I don’t think reality TV gets the respect it deserves.”

Being called “the Olympics of oversharing”: “I’ve always just been open. I’ve been super-open with my life, and that’s just who I am, and that’s how my family is, too,” Kardashian West responded, noting later in the interview that she handles all of her social media posting — and seemed genuinely flabbergasted that other celebs might have teams do this for them.

She is NOT paid $10,000 per tweet: “I would have been tweeting every two seconds if it was true.”

Loving Instagram: “I’m loving Instagram. I think you can be really creative, and a little more intimate. It has more texture than just words, obviously… [I have] a three-image rule. In the same setting, I try not to do more than three. It oversaturates my feed.”

She’s loyal to Blackberry: “I love my BlackBerry. I don’t understand the reaction I get when I say that. It’s my heart and soul, I love it and I’ll never get rid of it. I do have an iPhone, and I use it for photos. But if you write an email and you need to type fast — I like having the [key]board. They don’t even have them in stores anymore. I buy them on eBay. It’s a BlackBerry Bold. And I like to have three in my room that I line up in case they break.”

Her iOS Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game and whether it’s really made $200 million: “We’ll never talk dollars and cents … It could be more. It could be less. It’s been very good to me.”

[From Re/code]

She also said that she’s working with video game people to add more “characters” to the game and it sounds like there will be some updates that will probably add up to even more $$$ for Kim. As for her Blackberry obsession – I’ve known people, professional people, who are still very loyal to their Blackberries too. I think it’s just like Apple loyalty – it’s just a preference for user-friendliness and some people are happier with the feel of a Blackberry.

Oh, and she really needs to stop comparing Keeping Up with the Kardashians with I Love Lucy. STAHP.

Amy Poehler: Feminism questions ‘get us to talk sh-t about each other’

Amy Poehler

I hope you’re not tired of Amy Poehler yet. She’s been everywhere to promote her new Yes Please book. She’s talked about divorce advice and aging. Amy visited David Letterman and wore this cute, red plaid coat. She told Dave how she wanted to set fire to the Parks & Rec set during the show’s final episode. Amy also visited Howard Stern (via Popwatch) and admitted she went on a one-off date with Uncle Jesse John Stamos and “blew it.” Amy says she didn’t realize it was a romantic outing until it was too late. She then admitted to enjoying pr0n and apologized to her father. You can listen to that whole episode here.

What I’d like to talk about is Amy’s visit to AOL Build where she talked about the celebrity feminism discussion. Amy’s referring to the routine questions by journalists with nearly every starlet. Some have passed, but most have failed the inquiry. Here’s what Amy has to say about this popular topic:

“This discussion — the media discussion of who is and isn’t a feminist — is yet another example of the media attempting to divide us, to take us and split us apart, and our view among each other,” said Poehler. “So it’s like, ‘She said she was, she said she wasn’t, now she is, now she’s not, she made her one.’ It’s just bullsh-t. It’s yet another attempt to get us to talk shit about each other, for people to bait you into [responding to] ‘What do you think about so and so?’”

First of all, it’s none of my business what they they want to say or do — that’s what feminism is. And also, what you believe or say at 20 is different at 40, is different at 60. I think as women, we need to continue to constantly celebrate what we have in common and share, and stop letting this society focus on how we’re different. It’s really frustrating. Yet again, the topic of feminism is another example of people cooping it, taking it out of our hands, and we have to kind of take it back.

[From AOL Build]

Amy previously covered Elle and told the magazine that she is a feminist. She says some actors and musicians avoid the term, which is to say, “I don’t really believe in cars, but I drive one every day and I love that it gets me places and makes life so much easier and faster and I don’t know what I would do without it.” Amy gets it. She’s also calling all of us out for our scrutiny of actresses and singers. Are we all guilty as charged? A lot of young women are afraid of the F-word. Discussing the term openly can only fix that fear and confusion.

Kaley Cuoco and Nikki Reed Twerk Together on Instagram: BFF Alert!

The first thing you should know about Nikki Reed and Kaley Cuoco is that both women are devoted animal lovers.

The second thing you should know is that they have wicked, ill dance moves, yo.

Think those two facts have nothing to do with each other? Well then check out this video of Kaley and Nikki gettin’ down together at a recent ASPCA benefit:

Nikki recently adopted a horse with her boyfriend Ian Somerhalder, and she’s been an outspoken vegan for years.

Kaley’s crusades for pit bull rights, raises money to protect seals, and participates in just about every kind of pro-animal endeavor there is along with her husband, Ryan Sweeting.

But clearly the most important thing these two share in common is a love twerking and air-humping.

You can’t learn moves like that overnight. Check out the masterful way that Kaley improvises with the pooper scooper. We’re not even sure what she’s doing, but it looks amazing.

We don’t know if Kaley and Nikki have hung out previously, but based on this clip we’re gonna assume they’re BFFs at this point.

Apparently, Kaley’s spiky new haircut wasn’t the only new revelation of the night. The only reason to watch The Big Bang Theory became besties with that girl from Twilight, and it was magical.

Someone get these two a spin-off where they hang out with pale dudes together!

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.
