More than just celebrity gossip

Diddy and Cassie Ventura Engaged?

diddy

Well it could be the time that Diddy settles down. Are Diddy and Cassie Ventura engaged? Well my friends, don’t get your hopes up. This ring could just be a yeah-we-have-been-together-so-long-so-I-guess-you-earned-a-big-rock sort of situation. It doesn’t necessarily mean the ring represents a soon-to-be walk down the aisle and a joint bank account.

But it sure does appear as if Diddy is keeping his woman count down to one. (At least we think?) Via his Instagram page, Diddy posted a photo of a big fat rock with the following caption, “Baby do you like it? I just want to get you wat you Like!I just wanna Mk you smile :) #takeDat!”

I’ll tell you what, Diddy…THAT sure would make ME smile! Wink, wink.

Even though this post generated some big talk on the internet, a rep for the couple said that they are NOT engaged.
Yet.

However, Diddy is one of those guys that I just don’t see married. You know, single for life.

In a recent interview on The View, Diddy talks marriage. “It definitely would be a dream come true for me to just one day be ready for the (marriage). I’m not really looking because I know the responsibility that comes with that, and I think that a lot of people, they jump into that and they’re not honest with themselves.”

He went on to add, “I’ve been close to it. When I’m ready, I’ll make the announcement.”

What I would like to know is if he has been THIS close to it, will he ever get close again? I’m afraid Cassie is as close as he will probably ever get now.

What do you think? Will Diddy ever take the plunge?

Halle Berry Breast Implants After Birth?

halle-berry

Halle Berry is as beautiful as always (I mean really, does this woman ever look BAD?) but there are rumors swirling that something may be different about Halle Berry. Breast implants after birth a possibility? Well that’s what numerous reports are saying.

Well on Wednesday night, Berry accepted the Acapulco Film Festival’s highest honor with the Silver Jaguar Award and when she took the stage it was hard for people to focus on Halle’s beautiful face when she was giving her acceptance speech.

Rather, her chest was the focal point for many. I mean, it was hard not to look at what Halle was wearing without looking down to the big cahoona cleavage staring back.

Now while breast implants are a possibility, after having a few children of my own I can pretty much put my bet that Halle did NOT get her breasts tampered with just yet. The woman had a baby just four months ago and my guess is she is feeding her baby nourishing mama milk. And from quick examination, those breasts look engorged and that woman is wanting to go home to empty out those suckers. You can just tell she WANTS to get off that stage and in the comfort of her own home with her baby, her man and her breast pump.

Miley Cyrus Poses Naked (Of Course!) For W Magazine

Miley Cyrus snagged the cover of W Magazine‘s March “Social Media Issue,” and, no surprise here, she’s scantily clad. The singer was interviewed by Ronan Farrow, speaking out on the negative attention about her image, which just oozes sex, as well as the bad press about her tour.

“I don’t give a s–t,” she boldly said about her upcoming Bangerz tour, which already has accusations that she is exploiting her minority backup dancers. “I’m not Disney, where they have, like, an Asian girl, a black girl, and a white girl, to be politically correct, and, like, everyone has bright colored T-shirts.  You know, it’s like, I’m not making any kind of statement. Anyone that hates on you is below you, because they’re just jealous of what you have.”

rs_634x846-140131135937-634.Miley-Dress-Blck-White-W-Magazine.jl.013114_copy

In terms of her provocative image, Miley claims it’s a stand against the norm among peers . “I just don’t get what half the girls are wearing. Everyone to me seems like Vanna White. I’m trying to tell girls, like, ‘F–k that. You don’t have to wear makeup. You don’t have to have long blonde hair and big t–ties. That’s not what it’s about. It’s, like, personal style.’ I like that I’m associated with sexuality and the kind of punk-rock sh-t where we just don’t care,” she said. “Like Madonna or Blondie or Joan Jett—Jett’s the one that I still get a little shaky around. She did what I did in such a crazier way. I mean, girls then weren’t supposed to wear leather pants and, like, f–king rock out. And she did.”

You can read the full interview here.

I don’t know if it’s the lack of heavy makeup, bleached eyebrows, Photoshop, or what, but Miley looks NOTHING like herself here! Miley has officially switched to Rihanna-Good Girl Gone Bad mode, turning over a new leaf to get publicity. She’s going to do what she wants, when she wants, how she wants. I just hope it doesn’t come back to bite her later.

Mimi O’Donnell: Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Girlfriend And Mother Of His Three Children Devastated

Arrivals At The Orange British Academy Film Awards

Meet Mimi O’Donnell, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s girlfriend and the mother of his three children he left behind because of an alleged heroin overdose.

Apparently the couple were recently separated after 15 years of being together. It is being said that when Philp did not show up to pick his kids up this morning, Mimi called friends and HIS friend David Katz found his dead body.

So what do we know about Mimi O’Donnell, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s girlfriend?

Other than being the mother of his three children who are now fatherless because of his drug addiction, Mimi O’Donnell is also an artistic type as she actually met Hoffman on the set of a play. She was born in Philadelphia and studied to become a teacher before deciding to drop out and change career paths. After graduating from the Philadelphia College of Textile and Sciences she went to work in costume design in Massachusetts. And then went on to New York where she met Philip.

Back in 1999, Mimi and Philip met on the set of “In Arabia We’d All Be Kings”…a play that he directed in New York. The couple also worked together a year later on another play he directed called “Jesus Hopped the A Train”.

Mimi is also a famous costume designer who has worked on the stage and television including Saturday Night Live. Just last year in April, she was named as the artistic director of the Labyrinth theater.

The couple have three children together: a son, Cooper Alexander, born in March 2003, and two daughters, Tallulah, born November 2006, and Willa, born in October 2008.

This just breaks my heart. It is such a shame that Philip couldn’t get help. Our thoughts are with Mimi O’Donnell and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s kids. Not a good time for them at all.

One Event Where You’re Never Too Fashion-Forward

kim-kardashian

Perhaps the most horrifying nightmare for anyone is to appear in public without clothing. The vulnerability and out of place sensation are so vivid as to wake us from sleep.

For better-dressed men, a close second to that bedtime terror would be to appear at an event in completely the wrong kind of clothing. Invitational guidelines for dress still provide enough latitude as to send us through the door as a total mismatch to other guests. It’s a painful and irreversible faux pas.

Dressing appropriately means knowing and acknowledging the tradition of the location and the function. Certain events are stuffy and traditional, where a man feels out of place wearing contact lenses among so many stodgy fellows with monocles.

Strike the Kentucky Derby from that list. A who’s who of Hollywood, sports, music, and every other form of celebrity will be at Churchill Downs, dressed to the nines and ready to be seen. The same rules apply for those who aren’t walking the photo op line; you have got to look good for the fastest two minutes in sports.

Indeed, charcoal will only be found in the portable grills of the infield, where the wildlife comes to frolic on the first Saturday in May. Unless cargo shorts, sandals, and a faded T-shirt are your wardrobe of choice, you’ll need to get to work on getting yourself dressed for the Derby.

So even though many men will opt out of a tie–Kid Rock is a perennial open-collar attendee–your ensemble will likely begin with a unique and trend-setting suit. Because of the Bluegrass State’s notoriously volatile climate–Derby Day temperatures can vacillate from the 40s to the 70s with ease–almost any fabric will look at home. Dark wool suits line the betting windows alongside flowery off-the-shoulder dresses; practical loafers stride the brick sidewalks behind wobbling red high heels. Neither tradition nor meteorology will restrict your selections.
Once the suit or blazer is chosen, the foundation has been laid. Men shopping for ties for the Kentucky Derby can let the sky be the limit. They don’t have to restrict themselves for the sake of conservative dress; the event is an opportunity to push the envelope right off the table. Any doubt about that can be resolved with a look at Jason Biggs.

Be sure to tie it with a unique and fashionable knot, and don’t forget to accessorize properly.
Speaking of accessories, it will take more than a watch. Like the ladies, you should visit the haberdasher for a proper lid. Fedoras and, of course, derbies are in wide use, adorning the heads of race fans like Ken Griffey Jr. and Joey Fatone, but broad-brimmed straw hats dot the crowd, along with a number of insistently bare-headed men. But keep in mind that men who prefer to sport their coiffures–or their toupees–will spend much of the day smoothing it down if winds are brisk, and may find it ruined if a surprise Louisville rain shower erupts. Not a great idea for those who are perpetually camera-ready.

While the day’s slate will be full of races, you are, of course, in attendance for only the one with the 6:24pm post time. The rest of your day will involve mint juleps, mingling with friends, and trying to sneak onto Millionaire’s Row to photobomb Jenny McCarthy.

During all these functions, you must look good. It is the Derby, and it’s a day made for standing out.

Kendra Says Legalize Prostitution, Y’all.

kendra_wilkinson_legalize_prostitution

Kendra says legalize prostitution. Because I’m sure you were wondering what Kendra was thinking about these days and her thoughts on the legalization of whatnots.

TMZ caught up with Kendra Wilkinson and hubby Hank Baskett at LAX on Thursday and decided to ask her thoughts on a prostitution ring that was busted in NY. Okay, actually they just told her and asked if she’d heard. Her thoughts were offered up voluntarily.

At first she said it was “good” and then she said it was “bad” and then she said it was “good but bad” or something to that effect- when told about the bust.

Then she said it should be illegal for consenting adults, before getting in an elevator and saying it was the “oldest profession…. in America.”

Watch the video for yourself HERE.

I’m thinking she meant “the world”… but as TMZ points out, it is indeed legal in some parts of the U.S. (such as in some counties in Nevada).

Oh, Kendra. I love you. I really think there should be more random airport Q&A sessions. There’s so much more to learn. Is Olive Garden still her fave “Italian Restaurant”?

What would you ask Kendra?

(As a side note, Kendra made a few headlines for her ‘I don’t give a crap’ sweatshirt pregnancy attire. No judgement here says me in my sweatshirt and pj pants.)

More from Bieber-land: Lil Za Charged with 3 Felonies.

Lil_Za_Bieber

Lil Za charged with THREE felonies? Let’s file this under reason #6987 not to be friends with Justin Bieber- Lil Za has officially been charged with not one, but three felonies stemming from the whole Justin Bieber house raid.

According to TMZ, Za has been charged with 2 counts of (felony!) possession of a controlled substance. That is one for the MDMA/Ecstasy and one for the Oxycodone. His third felony charge is for breaking the jail phone.

If you remember (it’s getting hard to keep up), Lil Za had drugs near him when the cops busted in with that search warrant on Bieber’s home. Yanno, when they were looking for video evidence or whatever in connection with the whole egging the neighbor ridiculousness.

The messed up thing? If convicted Za could spend as many as 9 years locked up. NINE YEARS.

I realize that is the maximum, but that still seems a little harsh. Sure, breaking a jail phone was a d*ck move, but one day you’re hanging out at Justin Bieber’s house and the next thing you know you’re in jail. Sure, drugs are bad. Hugs not drugs. Yes, absolutely. But you’re a guest at someone’s house- someone who reportedly has drugs galore all around, and somehow you’re the one that ends up charged with two felony counts of possession. The phone is just collateral damage- “you want a felony! I’ll give you a felony!”

Meanwhile, Bieber is bouncing around North and South America.

Note to self: It sucks to be friends with Bieber.

Is Lana Del Rey Engaged? Yes, Yes, Y’all.

lana_del_rey_fiance

Is Lana Del Rey engaged? Yes, yes. The singer is definitely engaged y’all- even if the news has been able to fly under the radar until now. Just how long has Lana been engaged? Months and months. Remember when it was warm in the northern hemisphere? Yeah, since then.

Multiple sources have confirmed to Us Weekly that Lana and boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill became engaged this past summer.

O’Neill is in Kassidy- a Scottish band- where he sings and plays guitar. The two began dating in 2011 and the engagement hoopla came after pictures surfaced of the couple house hunting in Los Angeles this past July- complete with a rock on Lana Del Rey’s left hand. Until now, however, we were left wondering without knowing for certain if it meant what we thought it might have meant.

Lana is known for her angst ridden somber songs about loss, but that may be changing soon. In January 2012, the singer admitted to Complex magazine that “Off to the Races” is about the highs of love. Of her relationship, she told the mag: “When I found somebody who I fell in love with, it made me feel different than I felt the rest of the day. It was electrifying. That’s what inspired the ‘Off to the Races’ melodies. That’s one of the times when you’re feeling electrified by someone else and they make you happy to be alive.”

No news yet on any wedding plans. But hey, they got secretly engaged- who’s to say they won’t get secretly married too. Congrats all around!

Miley’s Advice to Justin Bieber?

miley_jay_leno

Unlike Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus has no mugshot to call her own. And for good, reason- at least according to Miley. In fact, she has a few tips for Bieber. So what is Miley’s advice to Justin?

While on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, Miley reminds Justin that he has a lot of money, and to “pay people to make sure you don’t get in trouble and party at your house. Buy a house, and add a club to it.”

Going on, Miley says there’s a big difference between the two:It’s funny because today, I was looking at — my fans put all these people’s mugshots up, and they were like, ‘I don’t see a Miley mugshot yet!’ I get the most flak of anybody. I’m not doing anything illegal! I’m doing a lot of s–t . . . Oops, sorry!But I’m not doing anything illegal! So that’s all right. Everything I do is legal in California.”

See, Justin- it’s as simple as that. Also, don’t (allegedly) egg your neighbor’s house. Of course, that’s where the paid people come in to make sure you don’t leave your house. If you can’t leave your house, you can’t egg anyone else’s. It’s genius really.

At this point I’d advise Justin not to drive and to opt for a driver to avoid any DUI or drag racing incidents, but given the charges that he attacked a limo driver in Toronto, I’m at a loss for that one. So, I’m with Miley: Just stay home. And don’t do anything that gets the cops called so no one sees your cannabis canisters. Or maybe just move to Colorado (or Washington) and have cannabis canisters galore. You have lots of money, the choice is yours Bieber!

Rapper Eve’s $327K Tax Debt

eve_tax
Eve is a Grammy Award-winning rapper and, apparently also behind on income tax payments to the IRS totaling more than $327K in tax debt. Ouch!

According to RadarOnline, recently filed documents show two separate liens against her in NY state. Eve, whose legal name is Eve Jeffers, had the first lien filed against her last summer for three years of unpaid taxes (2007: $12,971.08. 2010: $181,875.53. 2011: $30,141.34)- all in all totaling $224,987.95.

Due to the past due sums being so large, the feds audited Eve in 2012 and hit her with another lien this past November- charging that the rapper hadn’t paid $102,084.30 in taxes owed in 2012. If you add it all up, Eve is looking at more than $327.

Eve is engaged to Maximillion Cooper as of Christmas Day after a trip to Scotland. Together, they have an estimated total net worth around $50 million. So, paying the total amount shouldn’t be too hard, but not exactly the best start to the New Year or a potential marriage.

Of course, falling behind on taxes isn’t exactly out of the norm in celebrity-land. Eve joins the ranks of Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage, Ric Flair and Lauryn Hill- so she’s in good company. But seriously, hire an accountant people. The taxman is going to come eventually, try to avoid the headache- especially if you have the means to do so.

Lindsay Lohan’s Missing Fur Coat Worth $75k: Karma?

lindsay_lohan_coat

After visiting a night club in NYC, Lindsay Lohan has a missing fur coat- a $75k fur coat at that. Or, rather she’s missing half of her fur coat. (pictured above: Photo Credit: MARK ROBERT MILAN/FILMMAGIC)

TMZ reports that Lindsay was at 1Oak on Wednesday and went in with a ridiculously priced 2-piece fur coat.When she left, she didn’t realize that she only had one of those two pieces- at least until she got to her car. She went back inside to get the other half only to find it wasn’t there.

She then began calling everyone that was at her table, but no one had seen it either.- with the exception of one Seattle Seahawks player that was at her table, or so says sources close to Lindsay.

Putting aside the fact that she has a 2 piece fur coat worth $75k that she hasn’t pawned- Me thinks maybe it’s a bit of karma. Do you remember way back in 2008 when Lindsay Lohan walked out of a club with someone else’s mink coat (valued at $12,000)? This was that same club. I know, it’s a little hard to keep up with all the times Lindsay has been accused of theft, but the owner of the $12k coat ended up suing Lindsay and the whole “stealing” accusations kind of became a thing for a while. (She didn’t steal it, of course, she just “borrowed” it. For two weeks. Just for safekeeping, I’m sure. duh!)

Now, the tables are turned and poor Lindsay may have been victimized. Sad face.

I would say that if I had a $75k coat that I’d sure as heck keep up with it, but that would be a lie. I would protect it fiercely at first, sure, but ultimately I’d forget it somewhere and be reminded why I can’t have nice things. Or if I’m Kim Kardashian, I’ll have my older sister yelling at me about starving children just because I may have lost some expensive jewelry in the ocean. Either way, I can’t have nice things. And Karma, well she’s a bitch.

Nick Gordon Talks Bobbi Kristina Brown Marriage: Says “Mom” Whitney Would Be Proud

Tri Star Pictures Presents "Sparkle"

I still don’t “get” the Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina Brown romance and I suppose it is none of my damn business anyways. I mean, I have never been in love with my adopted brother, so I guess I wouldn’t really “get it”. They’re married now and announced their union via Twitter. They seem happy as heck and seemed to be living under the radar for awhile and that’s great. Until now. They are NOW talking about getting hitched and how proud they both know their mother is of them.

Via our friends at Extra TV

“Extra” sat down with Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon for their first interview together since announcing their marriage on Twitter January 9th.

The couple said the criticism surrounding their romance actually made them stronger. Nick said, “It put a fire in us,” to which Bobbi Kristina added, “It lit a fire up under our ass and we went haulin’.” Nick explained, “The critics can say whatever they want to say… it’s like we have a force field and that s**t’s just bouncing off of it.”

The two explained they were best of friends when Bobbi Kristina’s mom, Whitney Houston, asked Nick to move in with them after he was going through a difficult time.

Nick said, “Me calling [Whitney] mom, this where everybody gets the…” Bobbi injected, “Brother and sister…” Nick added, “We were young. Krissy looked at me as an older brother, and I looked at her as a little sister.”

Nick continued, “She [Whitney] just treated me like she gave birth to me. She treated me like a son. Excuse me for saying this… she treated me better than my birth mother. I owe everything to her.”

Bobbi Kristina and Nick admitted their romance blossomed after Whitney Houston’s death in 2012, insisting that it was something Whitney would have wanted.

Nick replied, “She made me promise several times to look after Krissy… and, Mom, I will never ever, ever break that promise.” Bobbi smiled, “She wanted this. This is something she wanted to see.”

The two also dispelled rumors they are feuding with Bobbi Kristina’s grandma, Cissy Houston, over their marriage, saying Cissy gave them her blessing.

Bobbi Kristina stated, “She told both of us that she loved us very, very, very much, and Nick came up and he said ‘Grandma, I want to marry her. Is it okay? I need your blessing to do this, if I don’t have your blessing I won’t feel right,’ and she looked at him and she smiled. She smiled very wide and said, ‘Yes, son, you have my blessing.”

As for Bobbi’s relationship with dad Bobby Brown, she said, “We have a relationship. It’s a good one right now. At a point in time, we didn’t even have that… I love my father more than anything.”

Well, glad to hear that things are good (for the moment) with Bobbi Kris and her daddy Bobby.

What do you all think of this marriage? Do you find it kind of bizarre?

Toxicology Reports Could Lead To Justin Bieber Deportation?

JustinBeiber

Probably not and even all of his lewd, immature and law-breaking behavior probably will NOT send the pop star back to his native Canada despite an online petition that has so far generated over 100,000 signatures requesting a deportation of the Biebs.

Now that we know what the toxicology reports are, we know, according to his urine that indeed the singer did have marijuana and prescription medication in his system during his drag racing DUI in Miami Beach.

The NY Daily News is reporting that Bieber did voluntarily give a urine sample and it came back dirty for THC (pot) and Alprazolam, also known as Xanax.

This isn’t really a big surprise considering Bieber DID admit to consuming booze, pot and prescription pills after his arrest.

And apparently there was no denying the consumption of pot, as a new police report is saying that during the arrest and sobriety screening, the pop star REEKED of marijuana while he sat in the cop car. Well there’s certainly no denying it when you smell like a gall dang burning pot plant.

According to NY Daily News, “Back at the station, Bieber “had extreme difficulty” with his Breathalyzer test and “continuously attempted to grab” the device despite specific instructions not to touch the hose, the report from Miami Beach Police said. He then failed to provide enough continuous breath for a reading and became “agitated” when asked to take the test correctly, police said. Confronted over his “attempt to deceive,” he shot back that he was “blowing into the hose like he blows into his trumpet,” the report said. He then provided two readings taken three minutes apart that registered 0.014 and 0.011, below the legal limit for underage drivers, the report confirmed.”

Anyone else wonder how this is all going to end?
