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??!!

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.

Da Brat Ordered to Pay $6.4 Million To Assault Victim

These celebrities need to think twice before they act out! Looks like rapper Da Brat is going to have to shell out a pretty hefty sum for an assault charge from 2007.

The rapper was charged with attacking former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader Shayla Stevens with a bottle inside an ATL nightclub back in 2007.  She served over 3 years in prison for the crime, but Shayla sued her in 2009.

The case was finally settled this week as a jury awarded Shayla $6.4 MILLION to cover her injuries and past and future loss of earnings!

Now I KNOW Da Brat doesn’t have that type of money! She’s a decent rapper, but her last full album was back in 2003! She’s been seen trying to make comebacks, but nothing substantial. Definitely not $6.4 million worth! So the real question is how in the world is this woman going to pay this money?!

The Arsenio Hall Show Renewed for a Second Season

Arsenio Hall got a really nice surprise on the set of The Arsenio Hall Show during Wednesday night’s episode! Turns out that CBS picked up a second season of his talk show…and Jay Leno came out to surprise him with the good news!

After sneaking up behind Arsenio, Jay told him and the audience  the news. Arsenio hugged him, saying “How come I don’t get my news first?!” Jay replied, “He’s more annoyed that I knew before he did!” Jay then joked, “Actually, in the second season, I’m going to be hosting. They didn’t tell you that part!”

Check out the surprise below!

“We are thrilled that Arsenio will be returning for a second season,” Joe DiSalvo, president of sales at CBS Television Distribution said in a statement. “We knew Arsenio had a built-in fan base, but he’s also reaching a new generation. This season, Arsenio has been the youngest late-night talk show on broadcast television and has given our station partners a real alternative for their late-night lineups.”

Arsenio also said in a statement, “Since 9/9/13, I’ve been waking up without an alarm clock. Producing and hosting my late-night talk show brings me great joy. I’m back where I belong! Thanks to my partners at CBS Television Distribution and Tribune.”

I’m really happy for Arsenio! Averaging 6.7 million views a week, the show has been doing very well, and has had a slew of great artists and other celebs come on. Arsenio’s naturally a good host, so it’ll be great to see another season. Hopefully there’s many more to come!

Jim Lange, the first host of The Dating Game, has died.  The host, who passed away on Tuesday February 25, was 81.

Jim’s wife, Nancy Fleming, confirmed the news to the Associated Press on Wednesday that he died after suffering a heart attack at his home in Mill Valley, Calif.

Jim had a great career as a game host! After hosting The Dating Game for over a decade, he hosted other game shows including Hollywood Connection$100,000 Name That Tune, and The New Newlywed Game.

Even after his retirement from broadcast, the host went on to work as a radio DJ in L.A. and the San Francisco Bay Area as host of The Lange Gang on KABL. “As much as he’s known for his television work, his real love was radio,” his wife said. “He loved doing local radio, especially before it was computerized.”

Jim is survived by his wife, sister, five children, two stepchildren, and four grandchildren.

Sad that we have lost another legendary figure in the entertainment industry! Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

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).

Filmmaker Harold Ramis Dead at 69

Filmmaker Harold Ramis has passed away, originally reported by the Chicago Tribune reported. He was 69.

He died at 12:53 a.m. early Monday morning, with family by his side. His wife, Erica Mann Ramis, told the Tribune that he passed away from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, which is a rare disease involving swelling of the blood vessels. His health began to suffer in May 2010, when he got an infection that led to complications with the disease. According to Laurel Ward, Vice President of Development at Harold’s Ocean Pictures production company, Harold suffered a relapse of the vasculitis in late 2011.

Harold was best known for directing and writing Caddyshack, Groundhog Day and Analyze That. He also played the role of Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters, which he co-wrote with Dan Aykroyd.

Dan issued a statement Monday, saying he was “deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my brilliant, gifted, funny friend … May he now get the answers he was always seeking.”

Harold is survived by his wife, Erica, sons Julian and Daniel, daughter Violet, and two grandchildren.

Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton Split!

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have officially called it quits! The high school sweethearts announced their decision to separate after eight years of marriage. “We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” the singer and the actress told People .

Robin and Paula first met when Robin was 14, and were together off and on throughout the years. They were married in 2005 and welcomed a son, Julian Fuego, in April 2010.

“Some of our individual goals still haven’t been realized,” Robin said in an interview with USA TODAY in July of his relationship with Paula. “But we have a healthy child. We’re madly, crazily in love. That’s where I was at, and I wanted to celebrate it. Life is pretty good, you know?”

Maybe those “individual goals” are what split up their marriage? We can only speculate. I did love them together, though! I thought that they would be one of the celebrity couples to make it, especially since they’ve been together for so long. It’s good to see though, that they are still on good terms, and I’m sure that they will co-parent well for the sake of their son.

Avatar’s Sam Worthington Arrested for Allegedly Punching Photographer

Don’t mess with a man’s girlfriend! Sam Worthington was arrested Sunday in NYC’s Greenwich Village after getting into a scuffle with photographer Sheng Li.

The actor, known for his lead role in Avatar, was reportedly defending his girlfriend, Lara Bingle, after Li supposedly kicked her in the shins!  The photographer was also arrested and charged with reckless endangerment, assault, and harassment.

This isn’t Sam’s first problem with the law as of late. Last November, he was arrested after a fight with a doorman at restaurant Vortex. After being refused entry, he reportedly pushed the guy. Charges were eventually dropped, though.

Here’s hoping after this that he can stay out of trouble!
