John Travolta Says Scientology Helps Keep His Marriage Strong

John Travolta and Kelly Preston

John Travolta talked about the the state of his marriage with Extra and revealed that Scientology is the key to a happy marriage.


“Communication is number one, but our church does a lot to help us keep together. When we have issues, we go settle it up. Almost every six months we go and do a retrofit of what we are thinking, what we need and want and we match it up with what the other needs and wants… If you don’t do that you kind of get stale a little bit. Certainly our children have kept us tied together.” I wish I was making these quotes up. My take is that John truly loves Kelly (I believe it), BUT he also loves dong. And it’s a deep love, and if it weren’t for Scientology, the love of dong might win out. That’s my “translation”.
John also discussed baby Ben: “Oh my gosh he’s amazing. He is so bright, cute, healthy and wonderful. He has a smile for everybody, he brightens everybody’s day. He’s quite a baby. He’s starting to crawl, he’s just wonderful.”

New Video: Lady Gaga-"The Edge Of Glory"




This video and song reminds me of the music of the 80's and how appropriate, a saxophone performance by the late Clarence Clemons.  Video could have been inspired by "Flashdance"!

Clarence Clemons, Beloved Saxaphonist From Bruce Springteen's E Street Band, Dies

Clarence Clemons

Sad new today.  Clarence Clemons, legendary saxophonist and member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band died today.

Clarence Clemons, legendary saxophonist and the mountain of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, passed away on Saturday after suffering a stroke last week in Florida. He was 69.
Clemons, a Norfolk, Virginia native, joined what would become the E Street Band in 1972 after meeting Springsteen in an Asbury Park club – whose doors he allegedly tore off in the middle of a lightening storm. Indeed, Clemons, both in physique and personality, was larger than life.
In a statement, Springsteen reflected fondly of his bandmate and friend.
"Clarence lived a wonderful life. He carried within him a love of people that made them love him. He created a wondrous and extended family. He loved the saxophone, loved our fans and gave everything he had every night he stepped on stage. His loss is immeasurable and we are honored and thankful to have known him and had the opportunity to stand beside him for nearly forty years. He was my great friend, my partner, and with Clarence at my side, my band and I were able to tell a story far deeper than those simply contained in our music. His life, his memory, and his love will live on in that story and in our band."
Clemons played with numerous other artists, including Ringo Starr and Aretha Franklin. He also released five solo albums, as well as a semi-fictional autobiography in 2009.
His health began to falter in recent years, and he had recently undergone spinal fusion surgery and had both knees replaced. But even those obstacles didn’t stop him from keeping his mighty alto sax echoing through the consciousness of a new generation of music lovers; Clemons featured in the new single from Lady Gaga, “Edge of Glory.”
Gaga can speak for her own celebrity, but it’s fair to say that Clemons’ legend far surpassed any such boundaries.

Clarence will be greatly missed!  I am a child of the 80's and I took saxophone lessons in high school because of Clarence.

Check out some of his memorable legendary saxophone performances.

Sean Bean Star Of HBO's 'Game of Thrones' Stabbed In Bar Fight

Sean Bean

Actor, Sean Bean, star of HBO's 'Game of Thrones' was stabbed outside a bar in Camden, London.

The fight started when the 52-year-old actor and Playboy model April Summers were standing outside the bar for a smoke.
When a passerby spotted the couple and made lewd comments about Summers, Bean confronted the man, who just walked away. Later, when Bean went out for another smoke, he was attacked by the man.
Eyewitnesses report that the man punched Bean in the face and stabbed him in the arm with a broken glass.
Despite his wounds, Bean refused to go to a hospital but accepted a first aid kit from the bar staff and then went on to order another drink.
The police, who were called in after the scuffle, did not comment on the fight and Bean was said to be unavailable for a comment.
It is not yet known if Summers, 22, is Bean's latest girlfriend. It is reported that she was not injured in the incident and she is quoted saying, "I'm fine, it is a private matter. I don't want to make any comment."

Angelina Jolie Poses For First Louis Vuitton Campaign Photo

Angelina Jolie photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Louis Vuitton

Wow!  This is a gorgeous picture taken by Annie Leibovitz for Louis Vuitton.  The only crappy thing is that Angelina is posing with a bag that is no longer in production....and it's a HOT bag!


She’s barefoot, wearing her own clothes, no makeup and toting her own elegantly weathered monogrammed Alto bag. Yet Angelina Jolie looks radiant and completely in her element, reclining on a wooden boat in a verdant, lakeside landscape in Cambodia’s Siem Reap province. Jolie discovered the country in 2000 when she filmed “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” and it sparked her humanitarian activism. 
She’s the latest celebrity to pose for Louis Vuitton’s popular “Core Values” campaign — and surely the only one who brought four children to the photo shoot, some of whom had to be shooed out of Annie Leibovitz’s frame. 
“People are not used to seeing Angelina in this situation,” said Pietro Beccari, Vuitton’s executive vice president, unveiling the image exclusively to WWD. “I like the fact that it’s a real moment. This travel message we give through personal journeys is a fundamental one for the brand.” 
The ad is slated to break in the International Herald Tribune on Wednesday, followed by a range of news, general interest and lifestyle publications, including Vanity Fair. 
Beccari declined to disclose budgets for the media buy, or comment on reports Vuitton paid the American actress millions for the shoot. He would only say Jolie donated an undisclosed portion of her fees to a charity. 
The campaign is expected to run for at least 18 months alongside a few other recent “core values” personalities, including Bono and Sean Connery. Vuitton introduced the advertising concept in 2007 as a way to trumpet its travel roots and showcase its perennial monogrammed leather goods as a balance to its fashion-driven marketing — and to reach a broader audience. Other personalities who have posed for Vuitton include Mikhail Gorbachev, Keith Richards and Catherine Deneuve. 
Also on Wednesday, Vuitton plans to post a teaser on its Web site, louisvuittonjourneys.com/cambodia, foreshadowing an interview with Jolie that will be posted later in the month. In it, she is expected to discuss how her visit to Cambodia was a life-changing experience, awakening her to the plight of Third World countries. She adopted her eldest son, Maddox, from Cambodia and she and Brad Pitt established the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which is active in community development and conservation in the country. 
“This campaign is about a very special person and a very special journey,” Beccari said. 
And a storied handbag. Beccari showed off several paparazzi shots of Jolie toting the Alto carryall, which is believed to be at least six years old. The style is no longer in production, but “we are considering to re-edit it,” Beccari noted.

Men Arrested In Plot To 'Cause Really Serious Harm' To Singer Joss Stone

Joss Stone

Boy, Joss Stone is really lucky!  Thanks to neighbors who reported suspicious activity, Joss Stone is safe.  This story should remind all of us that the world can be a scary place and we need to all be aware of our surroundings.


Two men in their early 30s have been arrested near British singer Joss Stone's isolated U.K. farmhouse, allegedly with swords, rope, and a body bag in their car. Police believe the two were plotting to rob the 24-year-old star, or at minimum "cause her some really serious harm," the Telegraph reports.
Police began investigating the pair's red Fiat Punto after neighbors reported seeing a suspicious car on their quiet country roads. Cops first arrested the duo for weapons possession Monday morning; the charges were later escalated to conspiracy to rob and murder.
Investigators have not identified the two men who drove 250 miles to rural Devon from Manchester, and refuse to confirm what exactly was found in their car, but U.K. papers are reporting the pair also were in possession of floor plans and aerial photos of Stone's property. Police are still trying to determine their motive -- whether they resented her success or simply targeted her for her money, or had some other grudge against the star. According to the Telegraph, Stone is worth more than £9 million, and is one of the Top Five highest-earning female singers in the U.K.
"Joss is aware of the arrests and is being kept informed by the police," one of the singer's reps tells the Guardian. A neighbor told the paper the singer "was quite laid back and not in a major panic" the day after the arrests. What else would you expect from a free-spirit singer who only performs barefoot?

Jessica Simpson to Star In Reality Show 'Fashion Star'

Jessica Simpson

Not only is Jessica Simpson building a multi-billion dollar empire, but she's also finding time to mentor designer wannabees.  Jess will star in the new reality show, 'Fashion Star', where contestants compete in the design of their own fashion line.  I guess if you want someone mentoring you on this subject, it's Jessica Simpson.  She made a whopping $750 million dollars in 2010 from her own line of accessories and plans to launch  tween line with little sis, Ashlee.


Jessica Simpson is taking on the role of mentor to aspiring designers for a new NBC reality series.

The network said Monday that Simpson will help guide contestants in the series “Fashion Star” as they compete for a multimillion-dollar contract to launch their own brand.

lle McPherson will host the show, which NBC promises to be a “true spectacle” taped in front of a studio audience and featuring music, dancers and models along with weekly challenges for the contestants.

Simpson, 30, (”The Dukes of Hazzard,” TV’s “The Price of Beauty”) is a fashion mogul as well as entertainer, with a line that carries her name and includes 22 product categories.

“NBC is delighted to work with singer, designer, actress and pop culture icon Jessica Simpson,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC and Universal Media Studios executive vice president. “With an almost billion-dollar lifestyle brand under her belt she is sure to be an excellent mentor to our up-and-coming designers.”

The contestant who best combines fashion and business gets a contract to launch a line with three major retailers, which are yet to be announced. Buyers from each chain will serve as judges, keeping contestants in the competition by buying their designs.

Viewers won’t have to wait to shop for what they see: Each week’s winning design in categories ranging from suits to lingerie to accessories will be available for immediate online purchase.

Producers of “Fashion Star” include former NBC executive Ben Silverman, and Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz of Magical Elves, original producers of “Project Runway.”

“Project Runway,” hosted by Heidi Klum, was a hit for NBC Universal’s Bravo channel before a legal clash ended with the series moving to Lifetime.

The debut date for “Fashion Star” was not announced.

Kate's Little Sister, Pippa Middleton, Is Single-For Now

Pippa Middleton

Hey, all you guys who thought you didn't have a chance, now you do!  Pippa Middleton is, alas, on the market again!  Although prone to dating royalty, Pippa's last flame was cricket-star Alex Loudon.


The young woman who wowed the world with her sensational turn as sister Kate Middleton's maid of honor at the royal wedding has sparked speculation about whether she's still romantically linked with cricket-star-turned-banker Alex Loudon.
Middleton has not been seen publicly with Loudon, 30, for several weeks.
Instead, she's been seen around town — and in Spain — with former flame George Percy, son of the Duke of Northumberland, one of Britain's richest men.
As the duke's eldest son, Percy stands to inherit a considerable fortune.
"The Duke of Northumberland's son would be a considerable catch," said Charles Kidd, editor of the blue blood bible Debrett's Peerage. "He's the heir to his father and his father's title. The duke is the highest rank of the peerage — they do rank just after the royal family."
Kidd said Percy, 27, has served as a "page of honor" to Queen Elizabeth II, a position that allows him to accompany the queen at some major state events.
Loudon also has "distinguished ancestry," Kidd said, with close ties to the 1st Earl Jellicoe, who served as admiral of the naval fleet.
Pippa Middleton's visits with Percy — at a tennis tournament and a posh London restaurant — have prompted Britain's newspapers to report that she and Loudon have separated.
Pippa Middleton, dubbed "her royal hotness" by the tabloids, has been in the news almost continuously since capturing attention at her sister's wedding to Prince William.
"I do think she's got the potential to be a huge star for years to come if she's very selective," said Max Clifford, Britain's most prominent publicist. "But I don't know who she's dating."

Well, it sounds like Pippa knows what she wants and is not afraid to go after it!  I guess it's just a matter of time before she walks down the isle too!

Emma Watson On Cover Of Vogue-Talks 'Harry Potter' And Taking Control Of Her Life



Looking very grown-up and glamorous on the cover of July's Vogue magazine,  Emma Watson dishes on life as a student at Brown University to her "Harry Potter"-influenced childhood.  Emma Watson says she is now in control of her life.


"I have had no control over my life," she told Vogue about her "Harry Potter"-influenced childhood. "I have lived in a complete bubble.
"They found me and picked me for the part," she said. "And now I’m desperately trying to find my way through it."
Now mega-rich and globally recognized thanks to her female lead role in the "Potter" franchise, the actress is coping with a new life from a new perspective now that the final film in the series is complete, with a July 15 release date.

Helping her find her way are a wheelhouse of creative interests for fashion and design, an appreciation of musician Patti Smith and a little help from costar Daniel Radcliffe. 
"When one or the other of us was having a tricky moment in our lives, it was often that we would confide in each other," Radcliffe told the magazine. "We would also help each other with relationship advice."
Watson bailed on Brown University after succumbing to her famous status and is now trying to operate within that space. Her first attempt is leading the film adaptation of the novel "The Perks of Being a Wallflower." 
Forget those rumors of being bullied at Brown University (read here).  Emma's got it all!  We're told she will be attending another university, one that has a major more suited to her interests.  Good Luck Emma, wherever you go to school.  Don't let anyone hold you back from your dreams!

Song Review: Beyonce 'Love on Top'

Beyonce

Beyonce's, yet to be released fourth solo album, '4', yields a single called 'Love on Top' that gives thanks to a lover for putting her 'Love on Top'.  The official release date for '4' is set for June 28th.

We love the retro elements of this track, with its finger snaps, horns and an old-school feel that makes us swear we must have heard the song before on some Whitney Houston record from the ’80s. Accompanied by sweet backing harmonies on the bridge and chorus, Beyonce sings:
“Baby it’s you, you’re the one I love / You’re the one I need / You’re the only one I see / Come on baby it’s you / You’re the one that gives your all / You’re the one I can always call / When I need you make everything stop / Finally you put my love on top.”
We can’t help but notice how many of the compliments are preceded by the word “finally,” like when Bey sings, “Nothing’s perfect, but it’s worth it after fighting through my tears / And finally you put me first.” The singer seems to be sending subtle digs that her man didn’t give her his full attention before.
At least he’s doing a better job now — and he’d better keep it up, because we know she will drop him in a second if he doesn’t hold up his end of the deal. In that sense, ‘Love on Top’ is both a sweet love song and an expression of girl power.
The glorious chorus carries the final two minutes of the song through three(!) key changes, as Beyonce’s vocals keep reaching higher and higher. Just one minor quibble: At the end, when the synths drop out, why does the song fade out so soon? Another 20 seconds of the stripped-down chorus would’ve been a nicer way to go out.


Take a listen to Bey's new single below!  What do you guys think?  Sounds good to me!

Britney Spears Talks Femme Fatale Tour

Britney Spears
Britney Spears is certainly excited about her North American Femme Fatale tour, with Nicki Minaj.  She talks to 'Entertainment Tonight' about the whole thing.


Britney Spears is ready to embark on her North American Femme Fatale Tour next week with Nicki Minaj, and the 29-year-old pop star is letting ‘Entertainment Tonight’ in on all of her road secrets.
“I’m really excited,” she says in the first half of the two-part interview. “I’m probably going to be extra nervous the day before, but we’ve been working hard for two months now and everything is coming together really good, and I’m just excited right now.”
The epic show takes plenty of stamina to get through every night, but the Louisiana native has been busy prepping for the task. “Especially when you’re on stage and you’re on your eighth number, you’re like, ‘Oh my God,’” she says. “You get really winded and you’re like, ‘How can I do the rest of this show?’ But I’ve been training for a while, and before I come to rehearsals I’ve been working out and stuff like that, so I won’t have that predicament.”
To make it through the long bus rides, Spears says her pillows and ‘Sex and the City’ DVDs are essential, but her two most precious must-haves are her children, who travel on tour with her. However, Sean Preston and Jayden James have a hard time processing their mom’s celebrity.
“They’re really confused with mommy the star and mommy, so it’s really interesting to see,” she says, adding that her sons ask, “‘Is that Britney Spears, or is that you mommy?’ and I’m like, it’s the same person! It’s really sweet.”
The Femme Fatale Tour kicks off on June 16 in Sacramento, Calif., and will make its way through the U.S. and Canada over the next two months, before wrapping up on Aug. 14 in Toronto. Spears will then have a few weeks off before heading out on her European dates.

Jennifer Hudson Appears On GMA And Then Hospitalized



Jennifer Husdon's weekend started off good, on Friday morning, with her appearance and performance on Good Morning America, as part of their Summer Concert Series.

The Oscar-winning singer-actress showed off her unbelievable range as she belted out “Where You At” off of her new record, "I Remember Me."
During her sit-down with host Robin Roberts, Jennifer revealed that - since her dramatic pound-dropping transformation - fashion has become her favorite thing, telling “I’m loving it now more than ever … At night, I can’t even sleep to see what I’m going to wear the next day."
Now 80 pounds lighter, Hudson wants to help others reach their weight loss - as she's all set to pen a memoir (due out in January 2012), to document her own amazing journey to her happier and healthier body.
Jennifer Hudson experience abdominal pains just before she was due to perform on the GMA stage in Central Park.  She was only able to perform on set, before she was taken to the hospital.  She was treated for food poisoning at a New York Hospital and released.

In related news, Hudson is working on her first memoir that will document her inspirational weight-loss journey - she slimmed down from a size 16 to a size 6, losing a total of 80 pounds. The currently untitled book is scheduled for release in January 2012. She is also currently filming the Farrelly Brothers comedy 'The Three Stooges' with Sofia Vergara and Jane Lynch.

Sugar Ray Leonard Reveals Trials And Tribulations In New Book

Sugar Ray Leonard

When I hear celebrity stories of trials and tribulations, I feel sorry for them, but hope, at the same time, they find peace in writing down their feelings.   Sugar Ray Leonard is no exception.  Sometimes, the trials and tribs are what make them great.  Sugar reveals stunning revelations that make your skin crawl.

“I’ve done a lot of things in my life that I’m not proud of,” Leonard said soberly during a telephone interview.
He goes into great detail about them in his new book, “The Big Fight: My Life In and Out of the Ring,” co-written with Yahoo! Sports writer and editor Michael Arkush, not out of any sense of duty, but out of a desire to lift a burden from his own back.
Clearly, though, this is no self-help tome. Leonard, 55, didn’t write to help lift the spirits of the downtrodden who are battling the demons he once did. If it is a self-help book, it was written to help one man: Ray Charles Leonard.
“I finally got to a point in my life where I wanted to be totally transparent with my family, my wife, my kids and let go of that burden of pain that I carried inside of my chest for so long,” Leonard said.
This book isn’t the first time he intended to tell the story. More than three decades ago, Leonard hired Pat Putnam, one of the greatest sports writers of the time, to tell his tale.
Leonard, though, couldn’t bring himself to commit to the project and it was eventually scrapped. He was unable to address two separate instances of sexual abuse, because he hadn’t come to terms with them himself.
It was difficult even decades later, long after the coach who allegedly had abused him had died. He said he began to discuss it with Arkush, but couldn’t go into the details. At first, Leonard says, he told Arkush a sanitized version of the story.
He wrote that it wasn’t until he saw actor Todd Bridges on “Oprah” that he decided to write the entire truth.
In the book, he describes the abuse by writing he was in a car across from a recreation center with an Olympic coach. They were ostensibly there to discuss the significance of a gold medal.
“Before I knew it, he had unzipped my pants and put his hand, then mouth, on an area that has haunted me for life,” Leonard wrote. “I didn’t scream. I didn’t look at him. I just opened the door and ran.”
Leonard has been perceived as a heroic figure in boxing since winning the gold medal in 1976 and going on to a career in which he’d defeat legendary fighters such as Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns and Wilfred Benitez, among many others.
But there is nothing heroic about making an allegation such as he did and then failing to name names. It creates needless speculation about who did it and innocent people, who presumably only helped Leonard and assisted him on his way to superstardom, have become suspect.
Leonard, though, insists he’s handled it appropriately and doesn’t believe he’s necessarily cast aspersion upon innocent men.
“The people who are innocent, they know they’re innocent and they won’t even think of it, precisely because they’re innocent,” Leonard told Yahoo! Sports. “The people who are the perpetrators, if I would say their names, reveal their names, that would cause a lot of pain and suffering for their families and their kids. I didn’t think I had to do that. I could state what happened to me without going further and naming names and creating more pain for anyone else.”
Leonard said he told his first wife, Juanita, about the abuse, but that she didn’t respond in a way that would encourage further discussion. He said he later told his current wife, Bernadette, at a time when he’d had too much to drink.
Leonard, who said he hasn’t consumed either drugs or alcohol in nearly five years, said he resorted to substance abuse as a way of making the pain and the embarrassment he felt over the sexual abuse go away.
“When you’re a boxer, there is a lot of downtime and long periods of inactivity,” Leonard said. “The drugs I took and the alcohol I consumed, they were my own way of putting a Band-Aid on things. They were a long-term Band-Aid. That’s what I felt like. I was an emotional wreck and I needed something to help me.”
Leonard, who said he had wanted to go to the University of Maryland and pursue a career as an X-ray technician rather than becoming a boxer, said counseling has enabled him to come to terms with his past.
He’s a different man, a better husband and a more caring father for having finally released the secret he carried for so many years, he said.
“Telling this story was something I had to do for me,” Leonard said. “It’s like I have been released from some incredible burden. I had this huge weight taken from my shoulders and now I can be the man that I always wanted to be.”

Beyonce Covers Essence Magazine-Goes Back To Her Texan Roots


Beyonce goes back to her Texan roots on the cover of Essence magazine and talks about "The Year That Changed My Life".  In the video shoot for the cover, Beyonce channels he inner sexy cowgirl, in barely there attire.


"I had talked about taking a vacation before, but always ended up in the studio after two weeks, so no one believed me. This time, though, I was serious. I was going to give myself a year to do the things I never get to do. Simple things like play with my nephew, pick him up from school, visit museums, go to concerts, see some Broadway shows, learn to cook a meal and spend time with my husband... Yes, I needed some relaxation, but I wanted inspiration too, from regular everyday things. They did not have to be over-the-top productions. I was looking for tiny moments that would speak to my heart and make me smile..." --Beyonce, ESSENCE

In an ESSENCE exclusive, Beyonce pens her very first cover story, "Eat, Play, Love" -- and in her own words shares how a nine-month break and life's simple pleasures reignited her creativity and renewed her soul. 
For years, the only offstage glimpses we've had of the Grammy-winning singer, actress and all-around megastar have been paparazzi snapshots of her living the fabulous life; the yachts, the shopping, the courtside seats with her husband, Jay-Z. 
Now, with a new life filled with its own thunder and applause, and on the eve of her fourth solo studio album, "4," she is stepping up to a new kind of power.
Good for her!  She seems to be back in full-force.  Most stars would be scared to do what she did, but she had the confidence to know that she'd still be relevant, once she came back into the spotlight.  That takes courage!  Welcome back B!

Justin Timberlake Talks Cameron Diaz And Their Make-Out Sessions In 'Bad Teacher'

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake makes out with his ex, Cameron Diaz alot in their upcoming comedy 'Bad Teacher'.  He and Cameron dated for nearly four years, a few years ago.  Insisting that the physical scenes were not awkward at all (yeah right!), he goes on to say,

"I didn't look at it like that," Justin told Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson of the raunchy reunion at the film's junket in Los Angeles on Sunday. "We obviously know each other, but I looked at it as a really funny, funny scene that I've never seen done before."

While getting back in the action with Cameron may not have been strange, the "SexyBack" singer said filming closeups - by himself! -- for the steamy scene was brutal.
"What I actually remember was, you know, they got to my closeup for that scene, so I was just kind of by myself -- which is hard to imitate in real life," Justin told Shaun with a laugh. "Jake [Kasdan], the director, kept yelling out, 'OK, more contorted! Uglier face! Flare your nostrils! Curl your lip up...more!' And I'm trying not to laugh.


In addition to his tremendously successful music career, a starring role in 2010's critically acclaimed drama, "The Social Network," and establishing himself as a perennially hysterical "Saturday Night Live" host, a racecar sponsored by Justin's clothing line, William Rast, won the Indy 500 last week.
"I'm a lucky guy... I feel very lucky to have these opportunities to wake up to everyday," he told Shaun of his seemingly unstoppable good fortune. "You take a job like 'Bad Teacher' and it's like, 'Wow, I'm going to get to work with all these people that I admire... and I'm going to get to be a part of it.'

"I just feel like lighting kind of keeps striking for me," he continued. "So, I must have done something crazy good in a past life."
Catch Justin, along with Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, in "Bad Teacher" - in theaters on June 24.

Khloe Kardashian Exposes "Nips" On Fox Morning Show




Thank goodness the kids were all in school today!  Khloe Kardashian gave us all a peep show this morning.  While promoting the new season of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians" with her sister Kourtney, Khloe's nipple suddenly appears!  FYI Khloe, they have very nice lacy black bras that would have looked good under your shirt!


In the midst of discussing her sister, Kim Kardashian's forthcoming wedding, viewers couldn't help but focus on Khloe's bare breast beneath her clearly see through black blouse. But the habitual jokester is laughing off the wardrobe malfunction.
"My mom just called me saying my nip slip is 'all over the internet!' Ha!" she tweeted. "Is it weird that I love it?! Who knew nipples were so special?"
It was only a matter of time before Kardashian joined the elite wardrobe malfunction club, headed by the mother of malfunction herself, Janet Jackson. Kardashian took to her Celebuzz blog to do some explaining about her intimate interview.
"My stylist Monica Rose DID tell me to wear a bra with that sheer top but being the naughty girl that I am I disobeyed and went bra-less," Kardashian wrote of her Givenchy blouse mishap. "I have a nipple obsession and personally love when women show their nipples -- perhaps I was a member of a nudist colony in my last life ... We ALL have nipples"
Although Kardashian did go on to apologize to anyone she may have offended, we have a feeling that this exhibitionist won't be heading to Victoria's Secret anytime soon.

Whitney Houston Says Her 30-Day Rehab Stint Not Enough!

Whitney Houston
Poor Whitney Houston is back in rehab.  At least she can admit when she needs more help.  The Diva said her 30-day out-patient program just wasn't enough!

Whitney Houston is voluntarily seeking additional treatment for drug and alcohol addiction ... TMZ has learned -- after completing a 30-day out-patient rehab program earlier this week.
Sources close to Whitney wouldn't elaborate on what the additional treatment entails -- but we're told the singer has hired a round-the-clock life coach to help keep her on track.
We're told Whitney personally decided to seek out treatment over a month ago as part of a longstanding recovery process -- entering the out-patient program completely on her own accord.
As one source put it, "She really wants it this time." So far, no word from Whitney's rep.

Whitney proves that addiction is no joke!  If we've learned anything from these celebs addictions, it's

"JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS!"

Good luck this go round Whitney!

Lauryn Hill Pregnant With Child Number Six!

Lauryn Hill

Wow!  Never even knew she had FIVE kids!  Lauryn Hill is pregnant with her sixth baby.  Guess that's why she's been out of the limelight for the past few years!  Gotta take care of those kids!

The 36-year-old Grammy winner announced she is pregnant with her sixth child at the end of her Detroit concert on Saturday. "I'm going to be taking time off to give birth," she told the crowd.
The singer, who already has five children with Rohan Marley (son of reggae legend Bob Marley), first hinted about her pregnancy during a concert at L.A.'s Club Nokia in April.
"I keep having these children. I don't know if I'm the most fertile woman in America," she said. "I've got five big children, you believe that? If you ask anybody I went to high school with, they'd be puzzled. Wait till you hear the big secret, though."
Hill and Marley's other children are Zion David-Nesta, Selah, Joshua, John and Sarah.

Congrats on baby number six Lauryn and good luck!

Angelina Jolie Not Keen On American Education System

Angelina Jolie
Just like any other Mom, Angelina Jolie is concerned about the state of American education today.  She's lucky to have the resources to send her kids to the best schools in the world, unlike many of us.  

"I wish there was a book every parent could read that tells you how to navigate through the school system, and how to tailor the education system for your children and their interests," the mom of six tells the Independent. "I'm personally getting a lot more involved with their different tutors and teachers."
Jolie's children are enrolled in the Lycée programme French schooling system in several different countries, including New York, Prague and Venice.
"But we have different teachers from different cultures in our house, who travel with us. Not only nannies but teachers," she says. "To us it's about building a team around us where we can all be enhanced culturally and they can help with following a curriculum legally."
The "Kung Fu Panda 2" star adds that she believes there's a lot to be learned outside the classroom.
"I do think we live in a different age and the education system hasn't caught up with our children and our way of life," she says. "But we travel and I'm the first person to say, 'Get the schoolwork done as quickly as possible because let's go out and explore.' I'd rather them go to a museum and learn to play guitar and read and pick a book they love.
"I feel that there's got to be a new way to tailor things more directly to our children," she explains. "Considering the amount of information we have today, the internet and online books... We as parents need to think about how we can shake it up and make it better."

Good advice Angie!  Parents need to take action in order to improve our educational system.

Camille Grammer Prepares For Custody Battle With Ex Kelsey Grammer

Camille Grammer

Okay, we knew this was coming!  In the midst of Camille filming for "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" (yes, she's back! Yay!), a custody battle is ensuing between her and her ex-husband, Kelsey Grammer, and it's seems to be getting nasty......


Camille is currently in the midst of a nasty custody battle with Kelsey Grammer, who divorced her after meeting his new wife, air hostess Kayte Walsh.
Grammer has asked the courts to grant him full-time care of daughter Mason, nine, and son Jude, six.
But the Real Housewife is said to be furious that 56-year-old Kelsey, who married Kayte Walsh, 29, in February, has filed for sole physical custody of their children and is planning to move them to Chicago where he is currently based if he wins.

Camille's publicist has insisted that Grammer will have a fight on his hands because the children are happy and settled living with their mother in Los Angeles.
'The children are at home with Camille where they want to be,' Howard Bragman told PopEater
'If Kelsey thinks they will be joining him any time soon he needs to think again.'

And he accused Kelsey of seeking revenge on Camille for not granting him a 'quicky' divorce when he first asked for one.
'He is angry that she didn't walk away from the marriage without a fight,' Bragman explained. 'Kelsey is used to getting what he wants, when he wants it.
'After years of being in his shadow Camille has had enough. When it comes to her children she will fight for what's best for them.'

Camille, who is a full-time home maker, has previously admitted she was stunned at her ex-husband's new demands.
She said: 'Kelsey is being insensitive to our children.'
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the actor has refused to comment on the custody battle, saying the filing of the legal papers 'speaks for itself'.
Stan Rosenfield said: 'Any statement would be inappropriate. The filing speaks for itself.'


Well, we definitely have a juicy story on our hands!  We'll just have to wait to see the outcome, but I think Camille will win (just on principle)!  Team Camille here!  Kelsey definitely did her wrong.....

Amy Winehouse Out Of Rehab Stint

Amy Winehouse
Good thing Amy Winehouse knows when to call is quits!  The British singer has just ended her stay in rehab, but a source says that she will continue treatment as an outpatient.


Winehouse, 27, checked herself into a clinic last week in order to get herself ready for a series of summer festival appearances in Europe starting in mid-June.
"She has completed her assessment at the Priory Clinic in London and will continue as an outpatient," the singer's publicist Tracey Miller said in a statement.
"She is now looking forward to playing shows around Europe this summer and is raring to go. She would like to send a huge thanks to all her fans for the messages of support she has received over the last week and can't wait to see them," Miller added.
Winehouse, ironically best known for her 2006 hit "Rehab," has had an ongoing battle with drug and alcohol addiction.
According to Winehouse's website she is due to perform at music festivals in Serbia, Turkey, Greece, Spain and other European nations this summer.

Good for her!  She knows that there are a lot of temptations out there and it seems like she wanted to prepare herself for the fight!

Good luck on tour this summer Amy.  Sounds like you need it!

Halle Berry May Return To Television

Halle Berry

Halle Berry may be coming to a TV screen near you.    Rumor has it that a new script for a series called Higher Learning is being shopped around to networks like HBO and Showtime.  Halle would play a college professor in the drama.  She's not new to TV though, she had a onetime recurring role in Knots Landing, back in the day.

TV industry people are buzzing this afternoon about a hot drama spec that has Halle Berry attached to star. Word is the spec, titled Higher Learning, was sent out today to pay cable networks, with HBO and Showtime among those targeted. I hear that the project, from DreamWorks TV, is eying a quick turnaround, and a decision could come as early as tomorrow. The script, which I hear would have the Oscar winner starring as a college professor, was written by 30-year industry veteran Lee Rose. A queen of TV movies in their heyday during the 1990s, Rose segued to episodic directing over the past 10 years. She also co-ran with Martha Kauffman the WB series Related.

Kim Kardashian Sold Engagement Photos To People For A Cool $300,000


So, no surprise here, Kim K. sold her engagement photos to People for $300,000.  To bad the issue didn't sell as well as they wanted, so in the end, they may have lost some money.  Oh well, Kim got her money!


The new issue of The Hollywood Reporter can reveal that Kim Kardashian, newly engaged to New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries, sold exclusive pics of her engagement party (with accompanying confirmation) to People for a cool $300,000.
According to an insider, the issue underperformed on newsstands, selling below its average. A People spokesperson and a rep for Kardashian had no comment.
The $300,000 payday is par for the course for the Kardashian family, which earned $65 million last year, as detailed in a Hollywood Reporter cover story.
News of Kourtney’s 2009 pregnancy was sold in a package deal for $300,000 to Life & Style magazine. That included multiple stories: the pregnancy announcement, sex of the baby, birth announcement, first baby photos and body-after-baby reveal. (Life & Style declined comment to THR in February.)
When it came to Khloe’s marriage to Los Angeles Lakers forward Odom, she did even better. OK! Magazine received the official photos and announcement for just shy of $300,000.
Kris also had everything from the Lehr & Black custom invitations to Khloe’s 9-carat engagement ring “donated” for the lavish affair; sources say she promised vendors massive product promotion that would come from the media circus surrounding the wedding. In the event that an item wasn’t gifted, E!, it is believed, picked up the tab (E! declined comment).
But Kardashian -- who can make as much as $25,000 by simply mentioning a brand in a Tweet -- may soon ditch the last name that's become her calling card, according to reports.
TMZ.com says that she'll change her name to Kim Humphries.
Her mom, Kris Jenner, who is behind the Kardashian family deals, told Popeater.com that she thinks her daughter is making a mistake.
"I don’t think she should take his name and be Kim Humphries ... She needs to be Kim Kardashian because she’s worked so hard to get where she is," she said.

At this point, we know the wedding will be paid for by sponsors!  Can't wait to hear the story on that event!

William & Kate Grace The Cover Of Vanity Fair


Mario Testino photographed Prince William and Kate Middleton (before their nuptials) during the couple's engagement photo session.  Now the never-before-seen photo will grace the June 2nd edition of Vanity Fair

The July issue, which hits newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on June 2, comes 14 years after William's mother, Princess Diana, was featured in the magazine in a series of now-iconic candid photos, also shot by Testino.
In the inside pages, writer Katie Nicholl reveals new details of the newlyweds, like how William will continue to be addressed as Prince William, which means by default that Middleton will be Princess Catherine.
Her title will be put to the test when the couple embarks on their first official overseas tour to North America next month.
Their 11-day trip, which Middleton is said to be "beyond excited for," will take them across Canada and will be followed by a July 8-10 visit to Los Angeles.

Kelly Rowland To Join UK X Factor

Kelly Rowland


And the drama continues.....  Kelly Rowland is one of the new judges for UK X Factor.   She has officially signed and will join them for their eighth season.  Cheryl Cole was officially booted from the US version and was rumored to be returning to the UK version of X Factor, but according to the official announcement from ITV's Press center, Cheryl Cole seems to be out.  Oh well!


In the statement released by ITV yesterday the former Destiny's Child star said: 'I am so excited to join The X Factor UK and be able to spend time in one of my favourite places in the world.
'The music coming out of the UK right now is incredible with artists like Adele, Jessie J and James Blake, so I’m confident this season of The X Factor will give me opportunity to hear a few diamonds in the rough. 
'Being a judge is never easy, but I promise to be as sternly honest as I can and also encourage everyone who crosses the stage. I can't wait to meet the world’s next superstar!'

It was noted that Cheryl Cole's exit (as well as Dannii Minogue's) from the X Factor franchise was completely glossed over.
A quote from Simon Cowell simply said: 'These four are totally up for it, each of them bring a different attitude. They have had a ton of hits between them and they are all committed to finding a star. I have a feeling Louis and Tulisa will have slightly different points of view as to what the next star should look and sound like!'
ITV’s Director of Television, Peter Fincham, meanwhile said in the statement: 'As multi-million selling artists, songwriters and pop masterminds, Gary, Tulisa, Kelly and Louis have huge breadth of appeal with our audience and the ability to engage both the UK’s next generation of music talent as well as ITV’s viewers.'

Congrats and good luck Kelly!  You'll need it to keep from getting the boot next season!

Transsexual Claims To Have Had A Sexual Encounter With LL Cool Jay

LL Cool J


Okay, what do you think?  Transsexual, Toni Newman, claims to have had a sexual encounter with LL Cool J!  This week's Hip Hop Weekly has an exclusive interview with Toni Newman, who had worked on NYC's "Tranny Row"for years.  She's penned a new book that documents her time working as a prostitute.

In an excerpt from her interview with Hip Hop Weekly, she reveals,

"I had sex with LL Cool J. At that point, he had been one of the top five dates I ever had. I made over five-hundred dollars. For a street prostitute doing fifty-dollar blow jobs and hundred dollar hotel dates, he gave me five times more that I had already made…I wasn't aware until we got into the encounter and the glasses came off that he was in fact LL Cool J. We were a versatile group, and when I say versatile, that means the other person gives and receives."

This is some serious sh*t!  Do you guys think she's telling the truth?  LL must be pissed!  I wonder if we've heard the last of this story....  The problem (well, I don't know if I should say it's a problem) is that many of these transsexuals look like the real thing and you just can't tell.....  What a shame!  Guess it could happen to anybody....

Beyonce's Backstage Idol Rehearsal Of "1+1"



Thought this was worth seeing and listening to.  Beyonce is caught backstage rehearsing for her American Idol debut of "1+1".  Singing only to a piano, so almost  a capella, you can hear the passion in her voice.  This proves the gurl can sang (just in case you had any doubts)!

Jeff Conaway May Be Taken Off Of Life Support Today



Jeff Conaway, 60 is still in a coma and may be taken off of life support today reports RadarOnline.


A source close to the situation says, "Doctors advised the family that Jeff has had no brain function since he was brought into the hospital. The feeding tube has already been removed. The ventilator which is breathing for Jeff, will be removed sometime this afternoon. Jeff is in no pain whatsoever."
The former Grease star was found unconscious at his home on May 11 and was taken to the Encino Hospital Medical Center. Initially, it was thought that he had overdosed on prescription drugs, but later it was revealed he was suffering from pneumonia and sepsis. He later slipped into a coma.
Conaway, 60, rose to fame playing one of the T-Birds in the 1978 film adaptation of Grease. Later that year, he co-starred in the popular sitcom Taxi, as actor-turned-taxi-driver Bobby Wheeler, before leaving in Season 4. He later appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful and Babylon 5 in the '90s.

A source has said that no measures will be made to try and revive him once the breathing tube is removed.  Sad, so sad.....
