Lupita Nyong’o Laughs About Rumored Jared Leto Romance

86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Lupita Nyong’o was one of my favorites at last night’s Academy Awards, but this interview really makes me smile.

“Extra’s” Mario Lopez spoke with Lupita Nyong’o on the red carpet at the Oscars before her big win for supporting actress in ”12 Years a Slave.” Lupita looking stunning in custom made Prada saying she does not have her next role lined up just yet, “I’m exercising patience…I don’t want to rush it was really important for me to go thru this mindfully…this is all very very new to me.”

Also very new all the of the dating rumors. Mario asking, “What is the deal with you and Jared Leto, did Miley Cyrus really break you up?” Lupita laughing “I don’t know how to get away from this.” When asked if there was any one special in her life, Lupita played coy, “I’m not telling you.”

Later when Mario told Jared Lupita cleared up the dating rumors he had a funny response, “It’s me and June Squibb.”

Jared Leto won the Oscar for best supporting actor for his performance in “Dallas Buyers Club.”

I hope this isn’t just a one hit wonder for her and that she gets some awesome roles out of this win!

Halle Berry Says Son Maceo Is ‘Fantastic’

Fame And Philanthropy Post-Oscar Party

Halle Berry is looking fine as heck after having baby boy Maceo and she flaunted that post baby bod at the Fame and Philanthropy Post-Oscar Gala on Sunday, where she opened up about her baby boy, Maceo, for the first time. And she chatted it up with Mario Lopez via Extra TV.

Looking stunning in a vintage Versace dress, just five months after giving birth to Maceo, Berry said her son is doing “fantastic” and that 5-year-old daughter Nahla is “a great big sister.”

As for her secret to bouncing back so quickly after giving birth, she attributed it to “working hard.” Berry is currently working on the new TV series “Extant,” and she explained why she decided to take a role on television. “I read this script for ‘Extant,’ and it was better than any movie script I read in a very, very long time. I just want to go where the good content is… I think all the best stuff right now, if were honest with ourselves, is on television.”

Halle’s fiancé, Olivier Martinez, is also heading to TV for a guest-starring role on “Revenge.”

So she worked her butt off? Um, I’d definitely love to have the REAL secret to her post baby bod. Regime, please, Halle??!!

GET A CELEBRITY SMILE: Waterpik Makes Flossing Fun

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Waterpik.

Let me just say this…I have never enjoyed flossing my teeth. I mean, taking a thin piece of string and sliding it between each and every tooth every single day isn’t exactly my idea of fun. And quite honestly, I don’t always do it. Okay, I’m pretty sure my dentist is not reading this and it is safe to say I really don’t floss much at all. I have always had great teeth as far as health goes. Every time I’ve been to a new dentist, they’ve told me…”keep doing what you are doing” or “whatever you are doing is working”. So, what has always worked for me is not flossing. Every once in awhile I will take one of those floss piks or tooth pics and dig out that piece of steak that gets caught in between my chompers. It works.

Waterpik-Blue-Logo-610x194

When I got braces put on my teeth, I was told by my orthodontist that flossing was going to be very important for me because with braces, food and other nasty particles would get in between my teeth much easier. He was right. And so the Waterpik Aquarius Professional Water Flosser became my new best friend.

At first I got this thing and thought, I guess I have to floss now. Boo hiss boo. I have always thought those little devices at the dentist’s office were kind of fun and to have one at my home could be sweet.

Let me just say after I broke out this baby, I fell in love. The Waterpik Aquarius Professional Water Flosser (WP-660) really IS easy to use with an on/off water control on the handle for convenience and it includes two water Flossing modes, floss and massage. It is definitely way more effective way to floss than with that string nonsense. And after using the Water Flosser, my mouth always feels fresh and clean.

If you are looking to try something other than the string or pics, I highly recommend the Waterpik. You can check it out here and receiving free shipping with the following promotional code: FREESHIPWP660. This coupon is valid until March 31st, 2014.

Justin Bieber’s Rolling Stone Magazine Story Highlights Pop Star’s Fall From The Top

justin-bieber

I saw Justin Bieber on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and thought, ok…the kid looks not so much like a baby anymore and hmmm, I am interested to see what kind of interview they were able to get since the Biebs seems to be plenty busy with things other than music. Sizzurp, anyone?

Well, to celebrate his 20th birthday, he landed the cover and according to their website, Rolling Stone is instead focusing on the hard fall of Justin Bieber. Seems legit because yes, it IS happening and maybe this article will snap the Biebs right back into reality? Or not…but, hey you never know!

Via Rolling Stone:

One of Justin’s wildest nights went down at a Miami strip club called King of Diamonds Gentlemen’s Club.
Bieber puffed a G Pen weed vaporizer and blew through the $75,000 in small bills his bodyguards brought for him in the VIP room, accepting lap dance after lap dance. The occasion? The January birthday of Bieber’s pal, rapper Lil Scrappy. Two days later, Justin was arrested for drag racing in a rented Lamborghini.

Insiders blame Bieber’s dad for encouraging Justin’s bad behavior.
Bieber’s 38-year-old pop Jeremy split with Justin’s mom when he was a toddler, but has reappeared in a big way. “His father’s not a great influence,” says a source. “They’re almost not like father and son — it’s more like two best friends.” Jeremy was in the strip club with Justin, enjoying the overflow of his son’s parade of strippers, and was also present when Bieber was busted for drag racing (he was accused of helping block off traffic).

As early as 2010, Bieber began to show signs of stress.
Justin broke down in tears backstage one day, bemoaning his lack of privacy. “If you want the Michael Jackson career, you have to grasp that you are never going to be normal again,” his manager Scooter Braun told him.

Justin Bieber’s wild decline: a timeline of the Canadian idol’s spiral

Three authority figures confronted Justin after his night in jail – but that didn’t slow his wild behavior.
After his night in jail, Bieber left Miami for Panama, with his gal pal Chantel Jeffries. Usher, Bieber’s mother and Braun flew to Panama to have a serious talk about his the singer’s behavior, shipping Jeffries back to Miami. A source close to the Bieber camp said the trip wasn’t an intervention, but “a conversation, reminding him of the people who care about him, and to consider things to do about it.”

After the non-intervention, Bieber and his dad took off on an even more out-of-control trip.
Justin and Jeremy rented a private plane to take them from Toronto to Teterboro Airport outside New York for the Super Bowl. According to a leaked incident report, the pair were so verbally abusive to a flight attendant, she hid in the cockpit with the pilots. The pilots were so overcome by the weed smoke, they had to wear oxygen masks to fly the plane.

In other words, his dad is enjoying the life his son is living too and he certainly hasn’t grown up himself. But oxygen masks to fly a plane because the air is hazy? Now that is just damn scary. They are just lucky they got from point A to point B that day.

So what happens from here on out? We sit and watch ever so patiently with popcorn in hand.

Khloe Kardashian Covers Cosmo: Talks Kids, Her Personal Life And Bruce Jenner

khloekardashian

Khloé Kardashian covers the April issue of Cosmopolitan, on stands March 4th. The interview – her first since filing for divorce from Lamar Odom – features candid remarks from both Khloé and her mom Kris on relationships, making mistakes and learning as they go. Writer Laurie Sandell sat down with the Kardashians in their home in California for the exclusive chat, complete with a cameo from soon-to-be family member, Kanye West.

Check out the highlights below:

Khloé on her close knit family:
It makes me a better person. We live in the public eye, so if one of us makes a mistake, it affects everyone…I have a such a great support system here. We’re so judged when we leave these walls that we try never to do that to one another.

On Bruce Jenner:
It makes me sad that people think Bruce is no longer a part of my life. I talk to him every day! I consider him my second father.
Kris Jenner: He’s my best friend and I adore him. We talk on the phone several times a day. But he’s better living in Malibu.

Khloé on how she handles life’s obstacles:
I’m not a big “cry on a shoulder” person. I’m very introverted when it comes to my own stuff. Everyone has issues and I’m not someone who likes to burden people…I hold things in. I don’t know why.

Khloé on what she would like the public to know about her personal life:
Your life is meant for you to understand and process, not to make anyone else happy. Kim was so thrashed for her marriage and it not working out. If she wasn’t happy it took guts to say, “You know what? I can’t do this anymore.” But you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. People hate us for showing stuff and they hate us when we say, “Fine, we won’t show it anymore.” I don’t have any regrets. I wouldn’t change a thing. You learn as you go.

Khloé on having kids one day:
I love kids. I hope and pray I have kids when the time is right.

Khloé on where she hopes to be in 10 years:
I live for the moment. If you think too far in the future, you might get disappointed or set the bar too low. It sucks at times, but everything happens for a reason, no matter how sh#tty your circumstances are. To say where I want to be in 10 years…I have no idea. I just know that I want to be happy and smiling.

Of COURSE Kris Jenner had to be present for that interview to make sure Khloe didn’t say anything she didn’t approve of. Or at least that’s how I see Mama Jenner. The last time Khloe had an interview she said something about her mother calling her fat when she was like 4 years old or whatever and that she needed to go on a diet. I’m sure Kris definitely wanted to prevent any other family “secrets” from being revealed.

There’s A Reason For The Madness: Chris Brown Is Bi-Polar

chris-brown-love-more-video

There is a reason for all the cray cray-ness that spews out of Chris Brown on a whim. According to new court documents, Chris Brown has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe insomnia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Well, this definitely explains a lot. Wow.

Brown was in court yesterday for a progress hearing and documents were filed by the facility where Brown just completed 95 days of anger management therapy.

The legal documents also indicated that Brown was self-medicating inappropriately. Um, ya think? The facility writes, “Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD.” The letter says Chris is now on meds for the bipolar and other conditions.

Let’s see if some meds help even his temper out.

According to the letter, Breezy has learned relaxation exercises to calm himself and he’s tested negative for drugs, including weed, since he’s been there. And apparently he’s doing really well, working hard and being complacent.

Well I hope that he is getting better for his own sake, for pete’s sake. He’s had a rough go of it.

Mad Men Stars Dish with The Saturday Evening Post on Audition Tapes, Childhood, and Fan Reactions

EveningPostMadMen

Let me just say I cannot WAIT for the next (and sadly final) season of Mad Men to start. Squeeeee! Yes, that’s my excited slash school girl yell.

As cable television readies itself for the first half of the final season of AMC’s acclaimed period drama Mad Men, The Saturday Evening Post interviews Jon Hamm and five other key cast members as well as series creator Matt Weiner.

In March/April 2014′s cover story, legendary Hollywood reporter Jeanne Wolf sat down with the cast, asking how they’ve grown and why fans project so much love and hate on their characters. The Post complements the story with a cover based on a Norman Rockwell illustration that appeared in its Sept. 17, 1960 issue. Fans will enjoy the bonus section following the interview. In “Real Mad Men at Work,” the Post throws open the doors to its archives to presents a look back at the “new” look of vintage ’60s-era art and advertising.

Check out the highlights from the cast interview below:

John Hamm on Don Draper: “Don Draper is a guy that looks good in all appearances and yet is essentially a disaster.”

January Jones (Betty) on fans’ reactions to her character: “People come up to me, and they
straight up say that they dislike me.”

Vincent Kartheiser (Pete Campbell) on his wildest post-fame purchase: “The wildest thing I’ve bought is a Japanese toilet, a Toto, a fancy and expensive toilet. The Ferrari of toilets.”

John Slattery (Roger Sterling) on seeing his audition tape recently: “You watch yourself on the audition tape and flashback, ‘Oh my God, I started out and my kid was six years old, and he’s in high school now.’ You change, especially physically. I feel like I’m 100 years older than when we started.”

Elizabeth Moss (Peggy Olson) on character judgments: “The only time I heard a problem was people questioning my character’s choices in dating. Which I have in real life as well. But I’m always like, ‘Really? You never made a mistake in who you dated?’ And that’s Peggy’s story. She keeps making her mistakes over and over unfortunately.”

Christina Hendricks (Joan Harris) on the new attention focused on her: “I’ve had days of anxiety or panic about being looked at or being talked about, and that’s made me just want to stay home.”

Executive Producer and series creator Matt Weiner on fans’ investment in the show: “It’s been an education for me to realize that what a lot of people find entertaining is feeling superior to the activity that’s going on on the screen. They want to have their values reaffirmed; they want to have this sort of narcissistic gratification of ‘I know what’s going to happen.’ ‘I know how this world is going to work out.’ Or, ‘Thank God I’m not like that.’”

Hamm on the secret to the show’s success: “There are so many variables. At any point in the development of the show, somebody could have made a decision that ruined it. They could have put a flaw in it and magnified over time, but it didn’t happen. Instead, everybody made the right decisions, because everybody is in it for the right reasons.”

Meet Tommy Lee’s Wife To Be SOFIA TOUFA!

sofia-toufa

Meet Tommy Lee’s wife to be Sofia Toufa! I never thought that Tommy Lee would marry again, considering it seems as if he always had a soft spot for his ex Pamela Anderson. But it appears as if Toufa has stolen his heart.

And Tommy Lee has popped the question. Lee made the announcement of the engagement by introducing his wife to be to his more than 430,000 Twitter followers.

Even though Tommy is twenty years older than his fiancee, he believes that Sofia is the one he will be with for the rest of his life.

He posted via his Twitter, “There comes a time in a mans life when you just know your partner is for LIFE!! Say hello to my fiancé and soon to be wife @SOFIofficial.”

So who is Sofia Toufa?

Well, I’ll tell you this…she isn’t a gold digger or so it doesn’t appear so. Toufa has a career of her own as a singer. According to Wikipedia,

Sofia, also known as SOFI, is a German dancer and singer, who is well-known in the music industry. Wikipedia states that: In addition to her solo career, SOFI has provided vocals on tracks from EDM artists including Deadmau5, Moguai and Savoy … In 2009, she has been touring the world as back up singer for Britney Spears on her “Circus 2009 World Tour” … Toufa has also worked with Fall Out Boy, Will.I.Am, Butch Walker, The Von Bondies, Tommy Lee and Nelly Furtado. SOFI originally began her career at age 13 with her music group Danacee and signed under the Def Jam label in Germany. Toufa also co-choreographed the music video for Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” and she was later hired to help choreograph, sing, and dance on Lavigne’s “Best Damn World Tour” in 2008.

Sofia will be Tommy’s fourth wife, as he was previously married to Pamela Anderson, actress Heather Locklear and Elaine Bergen (neé Starchuk). It should also be noted that he was also engaged to Prince’s former wife Mayte Garcia for two years but they never made it down the aisle.

Tommy Lee and his wife to be Sofia Toufa began dating in 2009. So there is hope, people! This could be it (as long as Pamela Anderson stays married to Rick Solomon).

Heroes Is Reborn, Making Hayden Panettiere a Really Busy Lady!

heroes-reborn

This announcement just came last night, but I am kind of freaked out. My man has been watching Heroes episodes on Netflix for the past couple of weeks. Did he know something that we all didn’t know? Freaky! At any rate, NBC is bringing back its conquering “Heroes” and fans are going nuts. I have yet to talk to my man about this, but I’ll let you all know his thoughts on this, which I am sure are happy thoughts as he gets pretty cray cray and engrossed in his shows.

An iconic series that still commands a rabid fan base, “Heroes” will return to the network in 2015 as an event miniseries with original creator and executive producer Tim Kring at the helm, it was announced today by NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke.

NBC has ordered 13 episodes for a new stand-alone story arc entitled “Heroes Reborn,” with all details of storylines and characters being kept under wraps.

“The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept. Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”

The original series chronicled the life-changing stories of a series of unrelated ordinary people who discovered they had superhuman abilities. As the saga unfolded, they learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world.

With the return of “Heroes Reborn,” NBC will launch a digital series prior to the 2015 premiere that will introduce the characters and new storylines. This leveraging of social media is a way for fans to re-engage with what was one for the true pioneers in multiplatform storytelling.

#HeroesReborn

This came out of left field! And Hayden Panettiere will work on both Nashville and Heroes, making her one busy lady. You go girl!

Check out the teaser promo below.

Rihanna and Eminem Going On Tour Together!

rihanna

For those who love the way they lie, you can soon check out Rihanna and Eminem on the same stage more than likely singing that very song TOGETHER. Live. Well, at least we would hope it is live and not some pre-recorded nonsense.

Eminem is featured on the most recent cover of XXL alongside Beats cultivators Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. In the issue XXL celebrates Beats Electronics and the launch of Beats Music, a music streaming service centered around the curation of playlists by genre experts (including XXL). You can check out Eminem’s full interview in the magazine, on stands nationally March 11th.

I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see Eminem live. Anyone else?

Tamera Mowry-Housley Controversy Talks Criticism Surrounding Her Interracial Marriage

tamara

Tamera Mowry-Housley makes an appearance on the Bethenny show to talk about the controversy surrounding her interracial marriage to husband Adam Mosely. And the prejudice isn’t just from one race, she’s getting it from all kinds. She says she’s been called a “white man’s whore” and “less of a black woman” because of her marriage.

So what does she think about the hatred?

Well quite frankly, she’s sick of it!

tamara1

Check out highlights from the interview below:

Bethenny: Your mom is black and ur father is white?
Tamera: Yes. My mom is a beautiful black woman and my father is a very handsome white man.
Bethenny: So you are interracial?
Tamera: Well I’m mixed, I’m bi-racial yes, and I’m in an interracial marriage, yes.
Bethenny: And you’ve gotten a lot of heat for that.
Tamera: Which is so weird.
Bethenny: More than most people do you feel like cause I don’t hear it as much.
Tamera: Really girl?
Bethenny: We’re talking about it with you because I know it’s something that you’ve dealt with.
Tamera: Yeah, I hear it from a lot of my friends, even my makeup artist. She’s in an interracial relationship and she gets it. I think maybe because social media is what it is right now. I have a Twitter account and people feel like they can just come to it and say whatever but I’ve learned to love my block button and I’m just choosing to see the positive side of it. We have more people loving on us than hating on us and we are choosing to focus on that now.
Bethenny: It’s amazing that something like Twitter which represents the most modern form of technology, that the things that people are saying on it are the most archaic feelings in the world. Right, I mean it’s ironic.
Tamera: Please they don’t even know me, they don’t know my friends.
Bethenny: But what does that even matter? What about if you had all black friends or all white friends? What does it even matter?
Tamera: Honestly, who cares? That’s where I’m at right now? Do you know by the year 2050 Time Magazine says that most people are going to be mixed so honestly the people who are posting those things need to get over it. They need to get hip!

ON HER RACIST CRITICS:

I was actually hurt because my parents had experienced it way back in the day and I was hurt because we as a community have come so far and we fight against it all the time. I was hurt that people still felt that way but the opposite way, you see what I’m saying? So if anything, I was devastated, hurt, and like I said I’m just going to pray and look at the positive.

I still can’t get over the fact that there are such ignorant, hateful people out there. So ridiculous!

Katy Perry Dark Horse Official Video Features Egyptians, Wigs And A Dancing Fluffy Dog

It’s finally here! The Katy Perry Dark Horse official video. And let me tell you, if you are into bright colors, grillz, pole dancing, Cleopatra or if you are simply a Katy Perry fan, you will certainly be entertained by this video.

The vid is set in ancient times with a modern twist.

There really is no rhyme or reason to this video but if after watching it you have a little more insight into it then me, please enlighten me.

As I sat watching every scene of this, I kept waiting for a horse and never got one.

What do you all think about this?

Marc Anthony On Friendship With Casper Smart, “He fulfills a very very very important role”

2012 Winter TCA Tour - Day 11

Apparently Marc Anthony is totally okay with Casper Smart taking on the role of Jennifer Lopez’s lover and fill in daddy for his kids. And that is great that there is no “bad blood” between the two men.

Via Extra TV:

“Extra’s” AJ Calloway sat down with Marc Anthony, who opened up about his relationship with ex-wife Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend, Casper Smart.

Anthony said he doesn’t understand why people are surprised that he and Smart get along. “I don’t know what they expect, but Jennifer and I have a responsibility to the kids and so does Casper. He fulfills a very, very important role. My children love him and respect him and so do I.”

Marc continued, “I get it, he gets it, we get it… we really bonded. He’s a really good guy, solid guy.” The singer jokingly added, “Until he f**ks it up, that’s my story.”

Anthony also talked about twins Max and Emme’s upcoming 6th birthday. “We have a big one. It’s at this place that we rented out with trampolines and all that good stuff.”

Marc’s love for children is apparent in his work with Maestro Cares Foundation, which benefits homeless and neglected children in developing Latin American countries. Anthony, who was at the First Annual “Changing Lives, Building Dreams” gala for the foundation, explained, “They are my kids… I have 105 kids now.”

In addition to appearing on the pages of one of the most iconic magazines of all time, Teigen will also be featured on Jimmy Kimmel’s “3 Ridiculous Questions” segment, airing tonight on ABC. If you’re not familiar, it’s a regular segment Kimmel shoots where he asks high-profile guests three “ridiculous” questions that warrants unique (and oftentimes humorous responses). Well one of the questions involves toilets and Chrissy’s answer is pretty good. All I have to say is John Legend better pony up some cash for Teigen’s bottom!
