Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Where is Patsy Kensit Now?

Patsy Kensit first graced our TV screen as a child star at the early age of 4 in an advert for Bird’s Eye frozen peas. Her career as a British actress, singer and model has kept her in the public eye through the years as have her relationships. Now at 48 years old, the blonde-haired, blue-eyed celebrity still has the wow factor as her career goes from strength to strength.

Childhood Fame…
At the tender age of six years old, Patsy played a part alongside Mia Farrow in The Great Gatsby. Her childhood career continued as she starred in children’s TV programmes such as Luna, The Adventures of Pollyanna and Estella which was the BBC adaptation of Great Expectations. In 1985, when Patsy was 17 years old, she stated, “All I want is to be more famous than anything or anyone.” At the time she was acting alongside Ben Kingsley in Silas Marner, also busy playing a double life with success in her singing career.

An Eighth Wonder…
At the age of 14, Patsy was auditioned by her brother Jamie to be the lead singer in the British pop band Spice. The band were together from 1983 to 1989 but in 1984 percussionist Nigel Davis left and keyboard player Alex Godson joined. At this point the band was renamed Eighth Wonder and had success with several UK hits, but was especially popular in Japan and Italy. Patsy’s career moved back to the screen in 2004 when she played Sadie King in the ITV soap opera Emmerdale. The role finished in 2006 and she moved on to BBC1’s hospital drama Holby City in 2007, in which she played a key part for three years. She has also starred in several successful films such as For the love of Ada and Lethal Weapon 2 alongside Australian-born actor Mel Gibson.

“Blackjack never sounded so good”
More recently, Patsy’s distinctive trademark voice can be heard on her own radio show with Mellow Magic at midday during the week. She is also the brand ambassador and voice of 32Red UK, an online casino site where you can hear her softly spoken English tones at the blackjack table or calling out your numbers from one of 32Red’s selection of roulette games. Whilst other online sites such as Gala Casino and 888Casino also work with VIPs, Patsy, with her distinctive voice, is one of the best-known British celebrities to partner with an online casino.

And that’s not all. News have confirmed this summer that Patsy will back on our TV screens playing a lead role in new ITV drama Tina and Bobby as Betty, Tina’s mother. She continues to write her regular column for Natural Magazine, giving her guidance on subjects in health, fitness, lifestyle and family. Her work fits in around family life with her two sons James and Lennon.

Patsy’s Love Life…

Patsy has been married 4 times and stated after her last marriage split that she would never marry again. Her first marriage was to Dan Donovan from Big Audio Dynamite in 1988. In 1992 she got married to Simple Minds lead singer Jim Kerr and they had a son called James. Her second son, Lennon Gallagher, was born in September 1999 during her marriage to Oasis star Liam Gallagher, and named after John Lennon. Her fourth marriage was to DJ Jeremy Healy in April 2009, but it was reported in February 2010 that the couple had split.

When columnist and blogger Perez Hilton asked Patsy if she would ever walk down the aisle again, she responded: “I don’t think I will ever get married again – I think I’ve ruined the sanctity of it.” She describes herself as a ‘hopeless romantic’ and despite her failed marriages, has been romantically linked over the years with prominent stars such as Spandau Ballet guitarist Gary Kemp, comedian David Walliams, actor Leo Gregory, actor and model Callum Best and guitarist Eric Clapton.

Patsy is still seen as a female British icon and her beauty has not diminished over the years. Her voice is recognised as notorious for perfect English, softly spoken and gentle in delivery and her successful career as an actress continues to take her back and forth from the big screen to the UK’s best-known soap operas.

New TV Show in Austin Seeking Applicants

Do you live in Austin, Texas? Are you moving there?

If you’re a graduate, post graduate, professional, scenester, or pretty much anyone in need of a place to live, and don’t mind being filmed, an amazing opportunity awaits.

How so?

An award-winning TV production company is currently casting a series that features a group of neighbors moving into and living in a chic apartment complex in ATX.

Think Melrose Place for real people, and much better since Austin is a spectacularly awesome place. What’s better than filming your own “LC moves in” scene ala ‘The Hills’?

Exactly. It’s pretty much one of those awesome once-in-a-lifetime type opportunities.

Because TV should always be interesting, the company is looking for “unique, charismatic characters.”

And as amazing as it would be to just up and move to Austin, the show isn’t looking for your standard reality TV experience. They want authentic. So show off your Austin pride- singles, couples, graduates, postgraduates, people in need of roommates, and everything in between can apply.

Sound like your jam?

Applicants should email neighborsrealityshow[at]gmail.com and include a photo (or anything else you’d like) that shows your personality, along with a couple of lines about yourself.

You can follow them on Twitter and Facebook for updates.

Tell your friends and your friends friends- and any and all interesting people. I’m ready to live vicariously through you.

Khloe Kardashian Talks About Her Mother’s New Boyfriend and Finding Mr. Right

Khloe Kardashian is back in Los Angeles — and she’s ready to meet Mr. Right! While celebrating the launch of HPNOTIQ Sparkle, the 30-year-old dishes on dating, her mom’s new boyfriend, muting haters, the careers of her younger sisters, and offers advice to young women who are ridiculed about their bodies.

Via Wonderwall:

Khloe Kardashian Talks Mother’s Beau and Finding Mr. Right:

“I think a sense of humor is like, the best thing,” Khloe tells Wonderwall.com of what she’s looking for in her next beau. But she assures us she’s no anxious spinster. “Things have to just happen,” she adds. “You can’t look for it.”

Khloe Kardashian on Kris and Bruce dating post split and her mother’s new boyfriend, Corey Gamble: “It’s weird when your parents date. But I’m just happy that both of them are happy and they are in a good space. They should be with someone and be happy. [Corey Gamble] is such a nice guy. He’s just a really good person. And I just like to see my mom happy, so it’s a good thing to see.”

Khloe Kardashian on her own dating life and how she likes to meet men:
“I don’t think I’ve really been set up. Not anything that worked or I would remember! I think it would have to be random. I think when you go and you premeditate something they never work because you are always expecting something and they never turn out that way. Things just have to happen. You can’t look for it. You have to connect with their chemistry. You have to feed off of that person’s energy. I think a sense of humor is like, the best thing.”

Khloe Kardashian on if we can still expect the Kardashian-Jenner Christmas family portrait, despite Kris and Bruce’s divorce:
“Yeah! We were all talking and it’s hard to get all of us together right now. So we were saying on our Christmas Eve party since we have a really fun photo booth. So we said let’s do one and have one that is like a collage. Like a Brady Bunch type thing and put them together and have a holiday card. So we’ll have like a New Year’s card. We don’t really have any organization for this yet, but I think my mom will come up with a plan. Bruce is totally going be at the holiday party. There is no bad blood between them. They were married for like 23 plus years. Things fizzled out, but we all still see Bruce and talk to him everyday. He’s still my dad.”

Khloe Kardashian on a great gift idea for the holidays:
“I like sentimental gifts. For example, Malika [Haqq] for my birthday got me hoop earrings. I’m obsessed with hoop earrings. I have an alter ego named Khlo Money, so she got me hoop earrings that had Khlo Money engraved. It was fun! I like when things are thought out. It doesn’t have to cost a lot.”

Khloe Kardashian on her fall/winter fashion essentials:
“I am a boot junkie. I wear them in the summer too. I think a girl should always have boots in her closet. I think it makes you feel sexy and still be a little more casual. I’ll do knee-high and thigh. Even with a T-shirt and jeans, you just feel sexier. And it’s easier than wearing a stiletto all day. And I’m into just sweater dresses. I love layering with coats. I’m going to London this weekend — I’m so excited that I get to wear all of the layering pieces.”

Khloe Kardashian on her best advice for women who are constantly ridiculed about their bodies:
“I used to be bullied or compared to my sisters all of the time when I was younger. I still am compared to my sisters now, but when you get older things kind of roll off of your shoulders more. When people are attacking you it’s for their own reasons and has nothing to do with you. As soon as you realize that it really has nothing to do with you and that person may have a horrible home life or whatever, I think you can sympathize. You have to really love yourself and that’s at 10 or at 80. Before you can do that it’s hard to find any relationship that will work: friends, husband, whatever. Those are your strengths. Show those to other people.”

Khloe Kardashian on the budding careers of her little sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner:
“I’m very protective of them. Like Kendall was modeling and I heard stories of people being mean. I know a lot of hair and makeup people and I’m always like, ‘If you hear anything, let me know!’ I will call someone in two seconds like, ‘Don’t you ever!’ And I like them to know that they can come to me with whatever. Like Kylie was like, ‘I’m so depressed. I just have nothing to wear.’ I’m like, ‘What?!’ But I have to remember they are teenagers and I need to let her be ‘depressed,’ even though she has no idea what that word means. But I want them to know that even the smallest problem is still allowed to be their problem. But I still say, ‘That’s not what depressed is. Don’t use that word.’”

Jon Cryer Dishes On Charlie Sheen’s Struggle With Sobriety & If Sheen’s Returning for “Two and a Half Men” Finale

Jon Cryer gets vocal about Charlie Sheen’s infamous firing from “Two and a Half Men” and the struggle of working alongside the impaired actor during a recent sit down with Larry King on the Emmy nominated series “Larry King Now”. Cryer also dishes on what surprises the hit sitcom has in store for it’s final season, including the potential for a Sheen cameo. Plus, exclusives from his upcoming memoir.

You have to hear what Cryer says about Charlie Sheen!

Cryer opened up to Larry about his ‘work friend’ Charlie Sheen’s struggle with sobriety, “If he was impaired, he was very good at hiding it. It was only noticeable in the last season to me that he ever had an issue.” Jon went on to explain how difficult addiction is, “When you’re friends with Charlie Sheen you have to decide how much you can have of that in your life, you know? I wouldn’t say we’re not friends…it’s not that. I can’t really have him in my life.”

The Emmy award winning actor responded to Ashton Kutcher’s Conan interview, “I understand from where Ashton sits, Charlie has been a guy who’s mouth just runs off.” Cryer also gave his take on a potential guest spot for Sheen on the “Two and a Half Men” finale, “I don’t know, the amount of bridges that would have to be repaired to do that, I don’t know if they are repairable.”

The “Two and a Half Men” star also told Larry he “could understand why” the LGBT community might be critical of the sitcom’s upcoming storyline, “Obviously, ‘Two and a Half Men’ is not known for treating things tastefully. So I can see why people might be nervous.” Jon also dished on Ashton Kutcher’s smooching skills, “He’s a good kisser. We were both very careful about breath mints.”

Towards the end of the interview, Jon and Larry swapped book writing advice as the actor shared the title of his upcoming memoir.

Charlie Sheen Addresses Rumors of his Return to “Two and a Half Men”

Could Charlie Sheen REALLY be returning to Two and a Half Men? And how in the heck would THAT happen.

Via Extra:

“Extra’s” Terri Seymour caught up with Charlie Sheen to discuss his tumultuous exit from “Two and a Half Men,” rumors that he may return for the series finale, and who his dream guest star would be for “Anger Management.”

On his very dramatic departure from “Two and a Half Men,” Charlie commented, “Never leave a hit show unless you’re fired, right? Was that out loud?”

With rumors swirling that Charlie may be making a return for the series finale of “Two and a Half Men,” Terri asked, “Something you’d consider?” Charlie responded, “I would definitely do it, yeah, yeah. If they’ll still have me, I will be there. Yeah, I owe it some measure of closure. I owe it to the fans…I just think it makes sense.”

When asked how he envisions the finale, “I have a brilliant idea but don’t want to give it away. It’s the type of moment I think people would talk about for a long time and it wouldn’t get in anybody’s way. Think it’d be a nice tip of the hat…They know I want to do it and I know they’re open to it, So, guess we’re just a meeting away from making it happen.”

As for who his dream guest star for “Anger Management” is, Charlie says, “I would love to have Jack Nicholson appear on our 100th episode because he did the movie. That’s the reason we’re all here.”

Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely, and certainly unwanted, visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy’s passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down. Remy finds himself torn between his calling and passion in live or returning forever to his previous existence as a rat. Along the way he learns the truth about friendship, family and having no choice but to be who he really is – a rat who wants to be a chef. “Ratatouille” repeats on Friday, November 28th at 5PM ET/PT

Amanda Bynes Hospitalized On Psychiatric Hold!

For quite some time now Amanda Bynes has been a hot mess.

But it was this recent video of Bynes out shopping (and attempted shoplifting) that had me at, “WTF, GET this girl some help!”

And finally Bynes has been put into a hospital, but for how long?

According to TMZ, Amanda thought a car service was taking her to The London Hotel where her parents and their attorney were going to meet her. In fact the parents had made arrangements with the car service to take her to a Pasadena hospital instead … where their lawyer, Tamar Arminak, was waiting with doctors.

TMZ reports doctors placed her on a 5150 psychiatric hold, where she will be held for 72 hours. That hold can be extended for 14 days, and we’re told during that time there will be a move to get another conservatorship.

This poor girl. Hopefully she gets the help that she needs.

Hilary Duff Responds To Aaron Carter’s Declarations Of Love

Aaron Carter has not been shy about his feelings for his teenage crush Hilary Duff. He’s been tweeting up a storm and constantly talking about the newly separated Duff.

He tweeted back in March the following message, “Don’t be that stupid douche that loses the love of your life forever.. Like me,” adding, “I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to better myself to get back to her. I don’t care what ANY of you think.”

And then it wasn’t even a month later that Aaron told Entertainment Tonight, “I’m not gonna give up on Hilary… ever.”

Now finally Hilary was put on the spot by Andy Cohen about Aaron’s love declarations and she isn’t really thrilled. She said, “Ugh, I don’t know… It was so many years ago. I literally haven’t seen him… so, it’s uncomfortable.” Cohen then noted, “He’s just feeling you on Twitter publicly,” to which Duff replied, “It’s nice to be felt.”

In other words, she’s honored, but a love fest reunion probably will NOT happen. But, in this crazy world of celebrity, you just never do know.

Kris Jenner Talks Divorce: “It Won’t Be Ugly”

Kris Jenner opened up to Wonderwall.com at PSLA’s Autumn Party last night about her impending divorce.

Via Wonderwall

Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner may soon be divorced, but that doesn’t mean they don’t still love each other.

The matriarch of the Kardashian family said she’s remaining very positive about her impending divorce, one that she doesn’t suspect will turn ugly.

“I saw [Bruce] today and I saw him yesterday,” she told Wonderwall.com at the 5th annual PSLA Autumn Party in Los Angeles. “It’s not like I don’t see him or that we don’t love one another. It’s just a different kind of a love.”

The soon-to-be former couple hopes to set an example for their children.

Donning her daughter’s Donna Karan dress, Kris said, “You can either make it real ugly so everybody is miserable or you can decide to be grown-ups and say to yourself, ‘OK, we’re happier apart than we are together so let’s make everyone else happy too. Let’s move on with our lives as best as we can.'”

Neither Kris nor Bruce will receive spousal support and they divided approximately $60 million from a joint account.

Having filed for divorce on Sept. 22, the couple are seeking joint custody over their only minor child, Kylie Jenner, who is 17. Kris knows her marriage isn’t something that she can simply wash her hands of — nor does she want to.

“We have 25 years together almost, two kids and he helped me raise the other four,” she said. “We have a lot of memories and traditions and love together. You don’t just walk away from that.”

NeNe Leakes To Join Fashion Police?

I love me some Nene Leakes, no matter what anyone says!

Via Extra TV:

NeNe Leakes joined “Extra’s” Tracey Edmonds at Universal Studios Hollywood. Nene keeping busy not only on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” she is back on “Glee” this season, is headed to Cinderella on Broadway, and has her own fashion line.

NeNe’s name also being floated around as a possible replacement for Joan Rivers on “Fashion Police” and Nene is open to the idea, “I have to say Joan is irreplaceable, we all love her, she’s fantastic, she’s given me some amazing advice about my career, I love Joan…If the opportunity comes it’s a possibility I might, I might not…I’m a fashion designer, love fashion and I’ll give you a good read every now and then so it may not be a bad place for me to be.”

NeNe back for season seven of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” reportedly earning 1.5 million, telling Tracey that’s not the case, “I was not offered 1.5, let’s be clear, yeah, it’s a lot nicer than that.” But not necessarily enough for her to do season eight, “This is my 7th season, I’m the OG of the Atlanta housewives, I’m the only original girl standing…For me you have to grow up at some point in life and career, I don’t wanna be bickering, arguing, snatching weaves every single day, just doesn’t make me feel good.”

NeNe following the news of what is going on with “Real Housewives of New Jersey” Teresa Giudice, “It hurt me so much because I like Teresa a lot…I Haven’t reached out to Teresa yet, I knew so many people are reaching out to her, me and Teresa, we talk like real…I feel so bad because she’s a mom, I’m a mom, you know how it feels when your kid spends the night with somebody you’re like you gotta come home by Sunday, just imagine going away for a whole year, leaving your kids behind I just don’t know what to do.”

Leakes looking forward to her Broadway debut as the wicked stepmother in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on November 25th, “As many people who would like to hate it stop hating…my name is going up in lights in New York City.”

Kendra Wilkinson Describes Finding Out About Hank Baskett Cheating Rumor: “I’ve Come Very Close to Divorcing Him”

Via E!:

This summer has not been easy for Kendra Wilkinson Baskett.

The Kendra on Top star, who just welcomed her second child in May, has opened up to E! News’ Giuliana Rancic about her marriage in the wake of rumors that Hank Baskett, her husband of five years, had cheated on her with a transsexual woman.

A person who reportedly passed a polygraph test meant to ensure she wasn’t lying about her side of the story.
“I get a call one night, from my agent, and he said to me, ‘Hey Kendra, you know there’s a rumor going around, about you and Hank’. The story is about the husband cheating on his wife with a transsexual,” Kendra recalled during an exclusive sit-down for the upcoming interview special, Beyond Candid With Giuliana: Kendra Wilkinson Baskett.

“This happened five weeks after giving birth to my daughter, and here we are with our newborn baby, and little Hank, and we get a call saying, ‘Hank cheated on me with a transsexual?’ I just laughed about it,” the former Girls Next Door star continued, remembering the details of what ended up being a life-altering day.

Moreover, Hank was right there next to her when she got the first call, Kendra said.
She asked Hank, “‘Did you do something?’ And he says no, so I believed him.”

Not long after the cheating rumor first made headlines, Kendra started leaving the house without her wedding ring—because she had flushed it down the toilet.

“I went looking for evidence, I found nothing,” she told Giuliana, noting that she had also heard about photographs that made the rounds of Hank’s jeep supposedly parked outside the woman’s apartment.

Asked if the rumor involving a transsexual woman made her feel any differently than it if had been more of a run-of-the-mill story, Kendra said, “It would have been the same feeling, cheating is cheating. I take my wedding rings off, right in front of him. I drop them in the toilet, he’s flipping out, and I just flush the rings down the toilet. “I’m yelling at him, saying, ‘Get out of my house!'” Kendra further recalled telling Hank—”he’s still a great father”—to take their kids to New Mexico with him to get them out of the media glare.

Speaking of which, Kendra also responded to those who have wondered whether she and Hank drummed up some drama for their show’s ratings, considering they kept shooting the new season of Kendra on Top throughout the summer.
“I wish we did,” she sighed. “It is the most insulting thing out of all this, that people think that this is fate. I would never do this to myself. You know, I would never degrade myself like that.”

As for Hank, “Overall he was denying the whole thing. I don’t know what to believe. Yes, I’m seriously mad at Hank because I know something happened. I’ve come very close to divorcing him already.”

“The View’s” Rosie O’Donnell and Nicolle Wallace Respond to Feud Rumors

rosie

Rosie just can’t ever seem to stay away from the word drama and all there is that goes with it. I adore Rosie but the lady seems to always be in a “feud”, real or not!

Via Extra TV:

“Extra” caught up with Rosie O’Donnell at her Rosie Theater Kids Gala in NYC, along with her “The View” co-host Nicolle Wallace, and both women shot down rumors that say they’re feuding on and off camera.

O’Donnell stated, “There isn’t any feud, yet… I don’t think there’ll be a feud. There wasn’t a feud between me and Elisabeth [Hasselback] until that day, and then that feud was over because I left, right? It takes two to fight, and I chose not to.”

Rosie continued, “So there won’t be fighting… is my true opinion and honest belief. We might disagree about things like whether we should go to war in Syria, my answer would be no, unequivocally no, but other people have different feelings and that’s what the show’s about.”

Wallace also laughed off the rumors. “It’s so funny to me… I come from the world of politics where the things that actually happen never get out. Now, to be in the world of TV where something that never happened is everywhere, I’m still adjusting; still trying to understand how that happen, but I had the opportunity to audition for Rosie and Whoopi for this job, so I feel incredibly supported. Their generosity toward me is breathtaking and we’re still getting to know each other.”

Well, here’s hoping it stays that way!

Zoe Saldana Talks Children, What Makes A Man Sexy And Her Sci-Fi Career

14 Cover

Zoe Saldana flashes a radiant smile on the cover of the September issue of Cosmopolitan for Latinas, on newsstands nationwide August 12th. The Guardians of the Galaxy star poses in a Julien MacDonald dress and speaks to the magazine about her children with husband Marco Perego, what makes a man sexy, and how she feels about her sci-fi career.

Via Cosmopolitan for Latinas:

On whether her children with husband Marco Perego will learn to speak Spanish:
“Of course [our children] will speak the languages that we speak; my sisters and I grew up learning French and speaking English and Spanish, and because of that, we’re able to understand Italian and Portuguese. But I’m going to have to make a conscious effort to speak Spanish to my children, because I speak Spanglish.”

On loving her age:
“At 35, you make better choices in men or partners, divorce people and situations that are not right for you, and learn to say ‘no’ with a smile.”

On what makes a man sexy:
“A man who has a natural respect for women – I don’t want a man who worships me: Stay away from those. Worshipping doesn’t count as really seeing me. I like men who work with women, are challenged by women, learn from women.”

On the most essential quality for a good sex life:
“To be uninhibited. I’m not talking about bringing in a third person or watching porn all night: That’s what leads people to believe they are amazing in bed when they’re the worst ever. Pornography is not sex education – it’s the opposite! Don’t allow insecurities to close you off. Be creative.”

On how being Latina affects her relationships:
“It’s one of the biggest factors about me: the fire, the passion, the “in your face” quality. I’m not going to say, ‘Whatever you want, whatever you say.’ I’ll say, ‘You know what I think? I feel this.’”

On debating whether or not to accept her now famous role in Avatar:
“When you’re younger and offered a part like that, you will have a moment of vanity, like, ‘Nobody’s gonna see my face.’ And at that moment you have to ask yourself, am I a celebrity? Or am I an artist?”
