Further Proof Megan Fox Is Better Seen and Not Heard

megan-fox

Megan Fox is about you all to forget how she got famous…her looks and her sassy mouth. In an interview (and cover shoot) with Esquire magazine the actress (?) clarifies that comment she made when she compared Lindsay Lohan to Marilyn Monroe.

She continues to dig a hole as she talks about Lindsay Lohan as though she were already dead. Or is she?

“In the newly released article that I did for Esquire, there is a reference that is made to Lindsay Lohan that I would like to clarify before it snowballs into something silly. The journalist and I were discussing why I was removing my Marilyn Monroe tattoo, especially since in his opinion, Marilyn was such a powerful and iconic figure for women. I attempted to draw parallels between Lindsay and Marilyn in order to illustrate my point that while Marilyn may be an icon now, sadly she was not respected and taken seriously while she was still living,” she added.

Fox continued, “Both women were gifted actresses, whose natural talent was lost amongst the chaos and incessant media scrutiny surrounding their lifestyles and their difficulties adhering to studio schedules etc. I intended for this to be a factual comparison of two women with similar experiences in Hollywood. Unfortunately it turned into me offering up what is really much more of an uneducated opinion. It was most definitely not my intention to criticize or degrade Lindsay. I would never want her to feel bullied, as she does not deserve that. I was not always speaking eloquently during this interview and this miscommunication is my fault.”

For those of you who didn’t get the prior memo of Lilo backlash, in the initial interview, Fox was quoted as saying, “I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult. It’s like when you visualize something for your future. I didn’t want to visualize something so negative. She wasn’t powerful at the time. She was sort of like Lindsay. She was an actress who wasn’t reliable, who almost wasn’t insurable…She had all the potential in the world, and it was squandered. I’m not interested in following those footsteps.”

Despite how idiotic Fox may sound, this interview isn’t going to change the fact that the girl is amazingly gorgeous and that Lindsay Lohan probably absolutely ADORES Fox just for putting her name and Marilyn’s in the same sentence.

Justin Timberlake Is Back With “Suit and Tie”

justin-timberlake

J-Tizzle is back. He brought back Sexy the last time and now, I guess he’s decided to throw on a Suit and Tie and use Jay-Z to bring the excitement (as if having JT back to the music scene isn’t enough!).

You can already buy Justin’s Timbaland-produced song on itunes! Um, did that, done that. DUH!

In an open letter on his official website, my man announced the big news. “This year is an exciting one for me. As you probably have heard through the ‘grapevine’, I’m gearing up for a big 2013. Back in June of last year, I quietly started working on what is now my next journey with that thing I love called music,” Timberlake said.

“The inspiration for this really came out of the blue, and to be honest, I didn’t expect anything out of it. I just went into the studio and started playing around with some sounds and songs.”

“It was probably the best time I’ve had in my career… Just creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process.

“What I came up with is something I couldn’t be more excited about! It is full of inspiration that I grew up listening to, and some newfound muses that I’ve discovered along the way. I’m calling it The 20/20 Experience, and it’s coming out this year.

“I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.”

In other words, it’s going to be good. Damn good. Yay!

VIP EXCLUSIVE: Lamar Odom Steps Out For Ronny Turiaf’s Birthday Sans Khloe!

ronny

Last night, January 10th, center for the LA Clipper’s Ronny Turiaf celebrated his 30th birthday at a Beverly Hills Mansion.

The private red carpet event sponsored by Haute Living and THVPR brought in an exclusive guest list of close friends and teammates Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Lamar Odom, DeAndre Jordan, Chauncey Billups, Jamal Crawford, Matt Barnes, Eric Blesdoe, Ryan Hollins, Caron Butler, and Trey Thompkins. One person missing? “Khloe Kardashian was not at the party with Lamar,” an exclusive source told Celebrity VIP Lounge. Lamar did have a great time partying on all night without his wife by his side! What does this mean? Could those rumors of a split further be fueled by Khloe’s absence at this soiree? Inquiring minds want to know!

A fashion show was also presented in Ronny’s honor featuring designers Ilja, Ready to Fish_, Marlies Dekkers, Anine Bing, and ROCO by Rodrigo Otazu. It sure looked as if the guys were enjoying the fashion show with those ogling eyes!

The event kicked off at 9pm and lasted well on into the night. Ronny’s blew out his birthday cake close to midnight which was a mimic of a mans Louis Vuitton bag.

Ronny Turiaf’s 30th birthday celebration was produced and hosted by IVC Global Sports & Entertainment. The newly launched company’s co-founders Neda Barrie and Owili Eison are no strangers to working with athletes and entertainers. Turiaf was dressed in Franco Uomo.

rumer-willis

Jayson Blair (NBC’s “The New Normal”) and Rumer Willis (“Hostage”) were spotted TOGETHER as they vacationed at Villa del Palmar Loreto in Loreto, Mexico.

Jayson and Rumer, along with their friends spent time at the resort kayaking, snorkeling, island hopping and touring the small town of Loreto as well as visiting the Mission.

Granted these two haven’t been dating THAT long but they sure look like they are enjoying each other’s company.

Could this be TRUE love? All I have to say is I hope Rumer keeps your young lover away from her mama. Come on, we all know that mama Demi has her cougar claws out now that Ashton is on his merry way.

emma-stone

I love Emma Stone. She’s a fabulously talented actress but now that she is in cahoots with Andrew Garfield we don’t hear a lot about her.

Emma: We are about to start in a week.

Ellen: That’s got to be so much fun. Yeah, it’s wild. I’m still trying to get my head around playing a character twice…In a row.

Ellen: Really?

Emma: Yeah, it’s really hard to get my head around (joking)

Ellen: You poor thing….

Emma: I know…

Ellen: How do you do it ?

Emma: I’m so tired (laughing.) It will be fun.

Ellen: So you’re working with him again which is going to be… tough.

Emma: Yeah…(kidding)

Emma: Again, I’m tired ( kidding)

FASHION FEATURE: Yes, I’ve Had a Bra-Tastrophe

double-divas

Have you ever had, or witnessed, a total bra-tastrophe – when something goes totally wrong with a bra? Umm, hello! We see it in the celebrity world all the time, but does it happen in YOUR world? I know it has happened in mine, many a time and I’m not even ashamed to admit it.

Yes, my breasts have flopped around more than a few times in the gym when they should have been tied done and I thought I had the girls all tucked in nice and tight, but I had one flop out on me. Apparently, I needed to go up a bra size or two instead of shoving those babies into a bra one size too small to make them look larger.

Cripes, we’ve seen it on Madonna (pointed cups?) and of course with Tara Reid on the red carpet. On Thursday, January 10 (10/9c), Lifetime will premiere its new original series, Double Divas, which boasts a hilariously unfiltered cast exuding Southern charm and hospitality, “Double Divas” follows LiviRae owners and best friends Molly Hopkins, the “boob whisperer,” and Cynthia Richards, the “Thomas Edison” of custom lingerie, as they display their natural talent helping women with any and all intimate apparel needs.

Here’s what we know about the series: “Boasting a hilariously unfiltered cast exuding Southern charm and hospitality, “Double Divas” follows LiviRae owners and best friends Molly Hopkins, the “boob whisperer,” and Cynthia Richards, the “Thomas Edison” of custom lingerie, as they display their natural talent helping women with any and all intimate apparel needs.”

Finally! A show brave enough to address boob issues. I like that.

Double Divas premieres on Lifetime TONIGHT! Check it out.

Tami Roman Shows Off Post Weight Loss Bikini Bod

tami-roman

It’s HERE! Tami Roman’s OK! Magazine interview (on newsstands now) where she reveals for the first time her new svelte body in a white bikini after losing 35 pounds total on NV Clinical!

Fabulous and a busy mom in her 40′s, Basketball Wives star, Tami Roman, who recently quit smoking, didn’t exercise regularly and her metabolism slowed down drastically. Tami realized that she needed a healthy boost in weight loss and not a quick fix.

As the newest spokesperson for NV Clinical, Tami couldn’t fathom the thought of being able to wear a swimsuit again and would actually get anxiety! She now admits, “Since using NV, losing weight and actually realizing that I can wear a bikini, I plan to take a special trip with my daughters this summer,” says Roman. “I have now realized that I’m 42 and fabulous and will definitely feel more empowered walking on the beach and not covering up!”

Besides starring on VH1¹s highest reality show, Basketball Wives Miami, Tami is also a seasoned actress and will star in the new original comedy series, Belle’s, premiering on January 21st.

Vanessa Bryant Is Mad At Drake!

Vanessa Bryant and her man may have had some issues but that was in the past. She’s got her big fat diamond ring and the swag back to prove it. Only thing is, girlfriend isn’t thrilled that during the time she and Kobe were having problems, Drake was trying to point and laugh at Vanessa!

In “Stay Schemin’”, Drake put her name in his mouth and Vanessa is pissed!

Vanessa Bryant has finally spoken out about being victimized by Drake when he clowned about her in “Stay Schemin’.”

The line that Drake rapped was, “Kobe ’bout to lose a hundred fifty M’s/Kobe my n—a I hate it had to be him/Bitch you wasn’t with me shooting in the gym.”

Even though Drake is said to have apologized via text, Vanessa was not and is still not thrilled. She took to Instagram to speak her mind. She said, “I love when immature kids quote a rapper that has never been friends with Kobe and knows nothing about our relationship. Just shows how gullible they are. I don’t need to be in the gym. I’m raising our daughters, signing checks and taking care of everything else that pertains to our home life. But thanks for your concern over an immature quote. I really wish people would stop THINK and then realize that they are being sucked into someone’s clear intention to monetize and gain attention off of our family’s heartache. This is real life. I hold down our home life so my husband can focus on his career. It’s a partnership. Since my husband isn’t friends with Drake, we received a text of an apology forwarded from his manager. It’s done and over with and it’s now time for people to THINK before speaking.”

True! I have to give props to Vanessa for not putting up with that crap! Go on girl!
