mark-wahlberg

Star of “Broken City,” MARK WAHLBERG makes and appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, January 17th. Mark chats with Ellen about his busy schedule, working on his Mom’s new reality show and how he injured his toe…and then he shows off his toe. Apparently his feet don’t stink.

Check out the highlights of the interview below.

ON HIS MOM’S REALITY SHOW AND HOW HE INJURED HIS TOENAIL:

Mark: It’s a very lively crowd here. It woke me up. I’ve had a long day

Ellen: What have you been doing?

Mark: I just flew in from Boston. I flew in from a snowstorm

Ellen: Really, today?

Mark: Yeah. We were in Boston last night. New York yesterday during the day. We were doing publicity for “Broken City” and we had a fundraiser at a restaurant “Wahlburgers” and my mom is now filming a reality show that we sold to the history channel about building a family business.

Ellen: Oh wow

Mark: So we went there to do that and then I jumped on a plane this morning and there was 2 1/2 inches of snow and it was very bumpy and I had to have half my toenail removed.

Ellen: Why?

Mark: The thing’s just growing the wrong way. So I had a problem before and the guy Mickey O’ Keefe who played himself in “The Fighter”?

Ellen: Yes

Mark: He’s a police officer? Well his daughter in-law, thank god is a podiatrist came so she came and cut half my toenail off.

Ellen: Wait, ok so I’m still in the snow. Did this happen on the plane?

Mark: It happened before I got on the plane.

Ellen: Before you got on the plane? So are you shot up with pain stuff or?

Mark: It’s worn off now.

Ellen: So now you’re in pain?

Mark: Yes. I’m feeling it…But the energy is making me feel better…I apologize; I know that was a random story.

Ellen: I love random stories. I don’t like to stay on the straight and narrow. Can we see it?

Mark: Do you wanna see it? It’s wrapped up. You don’t believe me?

Ellen: I believe you. Was it an ingrown toenail?

Mark: Yes

Ellen: It was the Big toe?

Mark: Yes. That’s the medical term.

Ellen: I still don’t know if I believe you. I think you have that on there…

Mark: I never go without socks.

Ellen: But why?

Mark: I just don’t.

Ellen: You have good feet. You have really good feet.

Mark: Because I always wear socks.

Ellen: Let it air out…. That’s good. Let it rest, it needs to rest. [Mark puts feel up] Can I get you a drink?

Leann Rimes Talks Infidelity and Suicide

leannrimeseddiecibrian

Leann Rimes at least acknowledges she’s a hot mess and I can appreciate that! According to ET Online, Leann is worried about her man Eddie Cibrian cheating on her especially since he cheated on his wife with her. Legit worry.

In an interview Nancy O’Dell, Rimes reveals info about her upcoming album and her bout in rehab.

About her new album Spitfire, the songs she wrote actually were written before all the drama. Leann said, “What Have I Done is one of the first songs that I wrote for the record, before anything was actually starting to happen. It was written about a friend of mine, but I didn’t realize I was writing it for myself at the time… It was my subconscious talking and I didn’t know yet.”

And get this, her then husband Dean Sheremet had heard the troubling track and should have gotten some sort of clue that Leann was ready to leave him. She explains, “He actually heard the song when I wrote it and, actually, he knew what it was about before I did. He knew I was feeling feelings. I’m not sure what those were that he knew. It’s a very complicated situation.”

And yes, she does worry about Eddie straying from her. She said, “I would be ignorant to say, and everyone else would think I am a liar if I didn’t say yes, and I have at times. Speaking for him, I would actually say that’s creeped into his [mind]…I think we’ve been very honest and open with that to each other and our conversations about it have only made me understand how much he actually cares, as much as I do, about being faithful to each other.”

Nicki Minaj Tries To Explain Mariah Carey Feud

nicki-minaj

American Idol Judge” NICKI MINAJ makes an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday, January 15th. Ellen talks with Nicki about adjusting to her new role on “American Idol” and getting used to the work schedule. And, Nicki opens up about her rumored feud with fellow judge, Mariah Carey. Plus, Ellen gives Nicki a gift of “BFF” necklaces for her and Mariah to try and patch things up.

ON ADJUSTING TO THE AMERICAN IDOL SCHEDULE:

Nicki: All of them ( fellow judges) always like to take breaks, pees breaks and eat breaks. I’m always like I don’t want to take breaks. If I take a break, I’m not going to want to come back so they literally go and pee and stuff and I sit there like…(shaking her leg)

Ellen: Really? You’re the one keeping everybody on time?

Nicki: Yes.

Ellen: That’s a shocker…

Nicki: Well, no. Not in the morning.

Ellen: Ok.

Nicki: Once, I’m already there I don’t want to move…

ON HER RUMORED FEUD WITH MARIAH:

Ellen: Let’s talk about what everybody was talking about during the audition rounds. You and Mariah had a little bickering situation.

Nicki: What?

Ellen: Yeah, we have footage if you would like me to remind you. So what happened there? I kind of think I know what happened but what happened with you and Mariah?

Nicki: I don’t know. It was just to big old divas, I guess. I was just like sitting there. and I guess before I went in there I heard all the stuff that was being said but I didn’t believe it. I heard them saying Mariah doesn’t want you on the panel but I was like, no. I am friends with Mariah. I was like arguing people down. Like, don’t believe everything you read, you’re crazy. And so I went there and I started to feel a bit of the shade. And I just kind of over compensated by being crazier. And I don’t think that really…

Ellen: That didn’t work?

Nicki: No.

Ellen: She didn’t like the crazier?

Nicki: No.

Ellen: You thought, I’ll make you sorry. I’ll show you.

Nicki: Kind of, not like that…If you know someone maybe doesn’t like you. It’s kind of like, now you’re gonna like really go in and show hey, because it’s like a defense mechanism. You know what I mean? It’s really that. You’re feelings are hurt and you can’t believe it so you kind of just compensate with being crazy.

Ellen: Right, poor Keith Urban it in between you two. The sweetest guy in the world. So now how are you all getting along?

Nicki: We’re fine. I cannot hold a grudge against Mariah Carey. What people don’t understand is that I’ve looked up to her for so many years. Since she came out, “Vision of Love” all that. Me and my Mother would sing her songs like all day and all night. So I don’t know if she’s gotten over it but I have. I mean, I’m over there cracking up laughing, having fun and if she’s still holding a grudge. I don’t know. Like I don’t care.

Ellen: And, what do you think the live shows are going to be like?

Nicki:…You know what I’m not looking forward to live shows.

Ellen: Why is that?…Come on Nicki, let it out.

Nicki: I cannot trust myself.

Ellen: In what way?

Nicki: Just like if there’s a slick comment being made… I just want it to go well. It’s about the contestants. We have a lot of great talent and I don’t want anyone on the panel to say something to crazy because then I don’t want to look like a crazy psycho again. I am not really a crazy psycho you guys, Seriously, please, no. I swear…No, I am serious. I am really not…

Ellen: I don’t think you’re a crazy psycho. I think you are a very passionate, creative person. And I think you have some many different facades of your personality. And, I think some personalities are wilder than other personalities.

Nicki: Yeah

Ellen:And, that wild personality that you have can get out of control. And the calmer one goes in the back and goes; I’m not going to stop that girl. And that girl is out there, right?

Nicki: Right, that’s what happens…

Ellen: …It’s going to be good TV not matter what. It’s live and it’s good. If goes well great and if it doesn’t better.

Did you see that peeps? I just did a big fat eyeroll and y’all know why.

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!

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.
