Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

CELEB SPOTTING: Kerry Washington and Nnamdi Asomugha Have Quality Time in NYC

In a rare appearance together, actress Kerry Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha were spotted walking together in NYC!

The couple, new parents to 5-month-old Isabelle, are notoriously private and are very rarely photographed together. Kerry likes it that way. The Scandal actress keeps her personal business personal, and there’s no changing that! “I have girlfriends in this business who talk about their personal lives, and it works for them, and I love it. But not for me. I learned through experience that it doesn’t work for me to talk about my personal life,” she told Glamour magazine last year. “I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it. I was on the cover of a bridal magazine [she covered InStyle Wedding in 2005 before ending her engagement to actor David Moscow in 2007]…But I couldn’t just turn around and say, ‘I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.’ So I just thought, ‘OK, no more.'” Smart.

I love when we do actually see them together, though! I think they are a beautiful couple, and I love to see couples together and happy. It’s the romantic in me!

In other news, make sure you check out Scandal’s season premiere tonight at 9 p.m. ET on ABC!

Amanda Kicked from The Ritz!

With the clock ticking until Lindsay Lohan exiting rehab, Amanda Bynes knows that the only way to retain her newly, hard-earned title as ‘White Girl Wasted’ is to go all out and so her antics continue! What’s happening in the world of sheer lunacy with America’s new favorite crackhead? Well, someone just got booted out of the Ritz-Carlton in NYC and fitting the actress, she did it in singular style!

Bynes claims not to smoke the green sugar, but guess what smell was wafting out of her room, slapping all of the help as they cleaned the floor? Yes…that. Since Bynes wasted no time in verbally slapping the staff left and right (she told the desk attendant that she was “too ugly” to check her in and referred her to a plastic surgeon) they surely did not waste one moment kicking her blue-haired ass to the curb.

Amanda claimsamanda-bynes-blue-wig she was not kicked out, but left on her own terms, but we call bull crappy on this one! And Amanda, if you’re smoking the sticky icky, why are you denying it? Just get a medical marijuana card in L.A. Like everyone else!!!

Aretha Franklin Verbally Slaps Kim Kardashian

aretha-franklin-10th-annual-tv-land-awards-03The Queen of Soul even gets into the game nearly anyone can play:

The Slap-a-Kardashian Game.

And ReRe (who is looking great these days) spewed off on the current Queen of Stunts. While out in New York City the other day, the paparazzi asked her what she thought about Kim bringing her baby on tour with Kanye West in a few months. Aretha has never been one to not speak her mind and she opined that Kim Kardashian should think think think again about bringing a newborn on tour.

Let’s see if Kimmy K has anything harsh to say about Ms. Franklin.

We doubt it!

CELEB SPOTTING: Taylor Swift and Harry Styles At Central Park Zoo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Taylor Swift and One Direction‘s Harry Styles looked mighty cozy on Sunday afternoon, as they were visiting New York City’s  Central Park Zoo to meet up with friends.

Both Taylor and Harry were dressed winter casual for their outing. Observers say the two weren’t overly affectionate, but Taylor was reportedly acting flirty with Sir Harry! After her split with Conor Kennedy, 18, after a summer romance, she has been seen spending some time with Harry, who was with her in November during her appearance on The X Factor, where they reportedly held hands and he carried her off stage over his shoulder.

A new romance for Taylor? Nothing new. She has to keep the romances going to keep the lyrics coming for these heartbreak songs! Girl’s got bills to pay!

Tom Cruise Hangs Out With Suri in NYC

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For what was supposedly the first time since the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorce and custody settlement, Tom was seen hanging out with his daughter Suri Tuesday.

Tom and Katie finalized their divorce and custody settlement last Monday. The actor  flew overnight from California (where he’s been filming Oblivion) to New York to spend time with his daughter.

Suri  held her dadclose as they arrived at NYC’s Chelsea Piers on Tuesday afternoon. Tom, keeping Suri protected among the paparazzi, had a smile on his face after being reunited with his daughter.

A source recently said to Us Weekly, “Katie wants to make sure the visits are in the context of him being a parent figure. He adores Suri, but now he’s afraid he won’t be able to have a close relationship with her.”

I hope that Tom and Katie come to some sort of reasonable agreement about Suri. Just because they couldn’t make it work doesn’t mean that both parents shouldn’t be in Suri’s life. Suri obviously has a lot of love for her father, and should be allowed to spend as much time with him as she can.

Beyonce Can’t Be Missed In Eye Blinding Neon Shirt

These days all I’ve seen Beyonce doing is shopping. She has been spotted quite frequently with her baby bundle in tow rocking her post baby bod with her Mama Tina not too far behind. Come on, there’s like a zillion photos of this scenario day after day after got damn day.

Yesterday Bey was out shopping for her Bey Bey and ended up picking up a brand new white iron bassinet. The Sweet Dreams singer couldn’t be missed in her bright pink neon shirt, pastel patterned skirt, and 60s mod sunglasses.

Despite all the damn shopping she’s been doing, she IS still working. We are hearing that not only is Bey working on a new album, she is working on a new movie AND she is set to return to the stage over Memorial Day Weekend with a 3-show stint at Revel’s Entertainment Center in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

What do you think of Bey’s bright ensemble? I’m just waiting for the moment when Jay and Bey and little Bey are spotted out wearing matching track suits. That will be a day that will make me smile.
