Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Anderson Cooper…Axed!

Well, it looks like Anderson Coooper came out for nothing. His daytime talk show, which has been suffering from low ratings since its debut two seasons ago, is being axed. I am guessing Katie Couric had something to do with that.

Damn her!

Warner Bros., the company that produced and syndicated that talkfest, released a statement:

“We are extremely proud of Anderson and the show that he and the entire production team have produced. While we made significant changes to the format, set and produced it live in its second season, the series will not be coming back for a third season in a marketplace that has become increasingly difficult to break through.”

Just like Katie Couric, Jeff Probst, and yes, even Ricki Lake, everyone and their mama was trying to fill the huge void left when the queen of daytime TV, Oprah Winfrey, ended her show after a quarter of a century on the air. None of them have fared as well, and it will not be long before another one bites the dust, I predict. Reporters ran to A.Coop’s dressing room (which was filled with hair dye, glitter, and a feather boa) for a statement…

“I am very proud of the work that our terrific staff has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons. I am also grateful to Telepictures for giving me the opportunity, and indebted to viewers, who have responded so positively. I look forward to doing more great shows this season, and though I’m sorry we won’t be continuing, I have truly enjoyed it.”

It’s OK, Coopie. You still have CNN behind you!!

Heidi Klum Is Intimate With Her Bodyguard

The accusations have already been made by Seal for a hot minute now, but Heidi Klum had maintained her silence. Maybe it was because she was asked by Katie Couric to not speak on it until she had a chance to release the information to her national audience? Whatever the reason for not answering the question burning on everyone’s lips these days, the model finally admitted on Katie that she is indeed doing the do with her bodyguard.

Heidi opened up her legs on the show, revealing that she “never looked at another man” while she was with Seal. This directly refutes what Seal said a few weeks ago, as he claims the bodyguard and his wife were screwing behind his back while they were married.

Heidi has known the bodyguard for over four years now, so rumors are swirling about how long the two have been together, since she claims they have become very close. She stated to Katie Couric on her daytime television show…

“I don’t know if I can call it a relationship. It just started. I don’t know.”

Listen, Heidi. If he is sticking his doo hilly in your German cha cha, it may not be a relationship in the traditional sense, but he is having a relationship with your lady parts!

Sheryl Crow Has a Brain Tumor

The rock singer, 50, recently was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor and she believes that cell phone usage may be to blame. She appeared on the premiere episode of Katie Couric’s new show, Katie, to discuss her diagnosis.

“There are no doctors that will confirm that but I do have the theory that it’s possible that it’s related to that. I used to spend hours on the old archaic cell phones.”

Crow claims that the tumor is near a part of her brain where she often held her cell phone for years. She also stated that she began to suspect something was wrong with her when she began spacing out on stage, forgetting the lyrics to her songs and feeling overall lethargic.
So how does that bode for the rest of us who have been chatting away on cell phones for the last ten to fifteen years? Do I need to go and get my medulla oblongata checked on now? Can I sue Vodafone now? Lord knows I’ve been wanting to!

Heidi Klum tells Katie Couric: “I Didn’t Cheat on Seal!”

Seal said he thought that his ex Heidi Klum was freaking around on him behind his back, but the supermodel is about to make Seal look like a got damn fool.

Sure Heidi is sweet and innocent looking, but she knows how to get revenge ever so gently. Sure her marriage disintegrated after many years of togetherness but just because they split doesn’t mean she was out doing the freak nasty with other men like Seal thought.

Seal recently told TMZ.com, “I certainly don’t expect Heidi to all of a sudden become a nun… Whilst I didn’t expect any better from him, I would have thought Heidi would have shown a little bit more class… before deciding to fornicate with the help.” The help Mr. Seal is referring to is Heidi’s big studly bodyguard.

Heidi may have denied the accusations through her rep but now she has publicly spoken via an exclusive interview with Katie Couric for her new show “Katie”. Klum explains, “When we were together, I never looked at another man. It was a unique choice of words… I’m used to it. Other people aren’t.”

Oh snap! Heidi doesn’t play! You can check out the full interview with Couric on Wednesday September 12th.

Katie Couric wants to be on DWTS and a new man!

Katie Couric is still a little firecracker. And just because she is done with the Today Show, she can’t get enough of television. Couric chats it up with Prevention magazine about her newly single status, her new talk show “Katie”, her exercise routine and more.

Check out the highlights below.

ON HER RELATIONSHIP WITH BROOKS PERLIN ENDING AND IF SHE’S OPTIMISTIC ABOUT FINDING LOVE AGAIN:

Of course! I am a person who really enjoys having a partner. I’m pretty much a
glass-half-full kind of person. That hasn’t changed.

ON HER NEW TALK SHOW “KATIE”:

We’ve got a notebook chockablock with ideas, and ABC has been wonderful. They seem to like the kind of work I do. One of the things I’m most excited about is being able to help people navigate or understand medical information or certain illnesses better through the show. If I can accomplish that, it’d be great. I’ve gone through a lot of medical situations, through Jay and my sister [Emily, who died in 2001 from pancreatic cancer], and my dad had Parkinson’s. So I’m sort of the family advocate—I try to learn all I can to be helpful to my family members. I’m also very interested in health and wellness.

ON HER ADVOCACY WORK:

I don’t mean to sound morbid, but I’m hoping that ‘cancer advocate’ will be the first line of my obituary. It’s definitely what I’m proudest of. I think journalism serves people – I do. But on the other hand, the idea that I’ve actually saved a few lives along the way through advocacy is incredibly gratifying to me.

ON HER EXERCISE ROUTINE:

I do Spinning and Pilates in the morning,between 8:30 and 10, maybe 4 or 5 times a week. I used to play tennis once a week, but I kept missing my class. I want to get more into yoga this year. I think it’s important for someone my age to stay flexible. And it’s a great stress reducer. I’ve tried hot yoga, but it’s pretty tough for me. I usually feel like I’m going to pass out.

ON IF HER DAUGHTERS WILL FOLLOW HER PATH IN MEDIA:

Ellie is figuring it out right now. She loves to write, and she’s a very people-oriented person. She also teaches sex education and nutrition to kids in public school in New Haven. It’s part of a Youle program. She may go to law school; her dad was a lawyer. Carrie is pretty remarkable and incredibly smart as well. I don’t know what she wants to do. She’s only 16, so she has time. You want to guide them, but you don’t want to push them in a particular direction, because you want them to have the opportunity to discover for themselves what they feel passionate about.

ON IF HER DAUGHTERS TWEET AS MUCH AS SHE DOES:

No, they don’t. In fact, they get mortified when I do it. I think it’s hard for them sometimes to have a mother who is a public figure and that people sometimes say not very complimentary things about. Carrie follows me, and I think Ellie does too—a lot of their friends follow me, so it’s sort of fun. But they’re not super into tweeting. They do enjoy Facebook, that’s for sure.

ON THE BUZZ ON HER WANTING TO DO DANCING WITH THE STARS:

That’s so funny. I write sort of a harmless little tweet and it turns me into a “Dancing with the Stars” wannabe, which actually I am. You know, the thing about that show I just really admire people who aren’t professional dancers, and who aren’t even amateur dancers putting it out there for all the world to see. I think I said in my tweet that there’s not enough antiperspirant on the planet to help me out in that situation, but that got a lot of attention which made me laugh.

I actually can’t wait for her talk show. And doesn’t she look amazing still?
