Dina Eastwood Says Francesca Eastwood’s Marriage Was NOT A PR Stunt

dina-eastwood

Dina Eastwood may be splitting from her husband Clint, but she’s still an active part in your step-children’s lives. Apparently she had something to say about Francesca Eastwood’s wild night in Vegas that ended in marriage via the Bethenny Frankel show. Check out the highlights below:

Bethenny: So your stepdaughter got an annulment after a week. She went to Vegas.
Dina: You know what that lovely gal, oooh wow.

Bethenny: She married Jonah Hill’s brother.

Dina: She’s an adrenaline junkie. She’s a lovely, smart amazing person who will do a goof off at a whim.

Bethenny: Do you feel it’s a PR stunt?

Dina: No, goodness no PR stunt oh gosh. All the Eastwood children are out of the spotlight don’t like to do stuff.

Bethenny: Alison’s lovely, I’ve met her.

Dina: Alison’s great. They are all amazing. Francesca would actually do something like that thinking that no one would ever find out. They don’t get that they are tied to Clint Eastwood or that they have a little bit of success on their own. So she calls me and says, ‘I didn’t think anyone would find out.’ Are you sh***** me? Like what are you doing? Get home. I just want to ring her neck but I am going to hug her too.
Bethenny So it’s annulled now. They were drinking?

Dina: She says no drinking but she’s 20 so of course she tells her step-mom no drinking. What are you thinking? Probably, let’s go have a fun day. I don’t know what you’re thinking but I am going to find out this week I hope. I do think annulment, yes, is occurring as we sit on the couch.

After the Eastwood divorce, she won’t have a whole lot to cash in on.

Alec Baldwin…Fired!

Alec-Baldwin

This has not been a great season for Alec Baldwin by a long shot. After dodging questions about his GLBT-friendliness that past few months, the actor was formally dismissed from his television show on MSNBC and he will now have to console himself in the arms of his young hot wife and his baby daughter.

Up Late with Alec Baldwin was not on long and never succeeded in the ratings to begin with. Coupled with that and bad press coverage over his anti-gay comments, MSNBC decided to kill the show in lieu of his “c*cksucking f*g comments”.

MSNBC kept it classy, only saying:

“We wish Alec all the best.”

Alec should know by this point that in this day and age, the best way to generate publicity for a new project is to do hoodrat sh*t that keeps people intrigued. We suggest a sex tape featuring Jon Travolta, Tom Cruise, and/or both.

It may not fix his image, but it would do wonders for our laugh reels.

Angela Bassett Says She’s Not Stuck UP And Mean!

angelabassett

Looking stunning as ever, Angela Bassett poses for the cover of December 16th issue of JET magazine as she discusses being a mom, a wife and her new projects.

Currently she is starring in FX’s hit drama, American Horror Story: Coven, and fans can expect to see her on the big screen alongside Forrest Whitaker in the anticipated film Black Nativity, which hits theaters November 27th.

While many are familiar with Bassett’s acting career, she gives readers of JET magazine a taste of her personal life as she discusses her struggles with infertility, disagreements with her husband, and parenting young twins while she and her husband both have thriving acting careers.

Check out the highlights via JET magazine below:

On her children facing racism amongst peers:

“The kids were playing one day, and a blonde, blue-eyed girl said that she didn’t want my daughter to be a part of the family. My son stood up to her and asked the child how would she feel if she was treated like that, and the girl said ‘bad.’ They were only 4 years old at the time.”

On Infertility:

“After trying and trying, I unfortunately couldn’t have my babies. It was my reality. I heard about the surrogate option and it worked out beautifully.”

On her public persona:

“I’m pretty sure that people think that I’m really serious. I know that they think I’m stern as well. People are always surprised that I’m actually fun, and not all stuck-up and mean!”

I’ve always thought of her as serious, but looks can be deceiving. I also didn’t think Naomi Campbell had anger issues.

The December 16th issue of JET magazine is on newsstands now.

Francesca Eastwood Pulls a Britney in Vegas

Just as soon as she said “I do!”, the daughter of Clint Eastwood is now backtracking quick as a flash and is having her quickie Vegas marriage to Jonah Hill’s brother (is his name really important at this point?) annulled.

Sources

francesca-eastwood-beauty-lead

connected to this torrid weekend affair claim that alcohol (no?!) had a lot to do with the marriage and subsequent annulment. But the funny thing is that Francesca claims to not drink alcohol. Perhaps that’s because she’s still under 21 and she is afraid Daddy Eastwood will hunt her down, put her over his knee, and spank the shit outta her!

Or maybe this was a sick sad cry for help and headlines in lieu of her father’s impending divorce to Dina? Whatever it is, she could ave at least waited a week. Even Kim Kardashian lasted longer than a weekend or two.

Oh, the shame!

Paris Hilton Just Told On Herself

’1 Night in Paris’

Remember that sex tape heard round the world? The tape that pushed Paris Hilton to the forefront of national media attention and first introduced us to the supreme famewhore of all time, Kim Kardashian?

Well, nearly ten years later, Paris is letting the cat out of the bag and revealing that she didn’t make one cent off the sale of the sex tape, which is in direct contention with previous thinking. Paris signed the rights off along with co-star Rock Salomon in 2004, but is now claiming that she didn’t receive any proceeds. Instead, Salomon earned it all – to the tune of at least $10 million alone in 2004. So the question that needs to be asked is why Paris signed off on it yet made no dinero?

The FAME, kids.

The fame!

Lauren Conrad Is Jealous Of People Who Love Their Bodies

lauren

Lauren Conrad appears on the January 2014 cover of Cosmopolitan (on newsstands December 3rd). Conrad is newly engaged and the proud owner of a brand new home in L.A. She has two booming fashion lines, best-selling books, and a destination website under her belt. In her interview with Cosmo, Conrad dishes on all of this and more.

Check out the highlights via our friends at Cosmo below:

On her engagement to fiancé, musician and law student William Tell: “I had no idea it was coming. I thought he would wait until he finished law school.”

On her engagement ring: “He didn’t even ask my friends, which was a bold move. He said, ‘I know you, and I know what you like.’ And I love it. It’s perfect.”

COS010114_106

Cosmo: You’re engaged! What would you say to readers who feel pressure to get that ring?

LC: “You have the rest of your life to be married. Enjoy falling in love. When girls get caught up in the timeline, it becomes more about the wedding than the marriage. You should be with someone with whom you could elope this weekend and be happy.”

Cosmo: What tells you it’s time to settle down with one guy?

LC: “William hates it when I say this, but he really is a very nice guy, and when you meet a nice guy who also manages to keep your interest, that is the dream…If you’re going to settle down, it should be with someone you can’t stop thinking about. Especially if you’re in your 20s. If I were single in my 60s, I would totally settle. I would!”

Cosmo: What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made with friends?

LC: “Being on television all those years, I got to view my own behavior. One thing I realized is that I was too hard on my friends when it came to guys. Instinctually, I wanted to protect them. But then you come off as judge-y and people are reluctant to come to you with a problem. I had to cut “I told you so” from my vocabulary.”

Cosmo: What is the best way to fall in love with your body?

LC: “I’m so jealous of people who completely love their bodies. I think most women have trouble areas as well as areas that they like. So you play up your favorite parts and learn to dress around the others. I used to hate my legs, but now I always wear minis. It was an accident. In an effort to look taller, I started wearing really high heels with shorter skirts and ended up showing off my legs a lot.”

Josh Brolin: Back to Rehab

IFP Presents The 17th Annual Gotham Awards - Arrivals

Josh Brolin is trying to kick his drinking habit once and for all. The actor, who had a few run-ins with the law and his ex-wife Diane Lane, has just checked himself into rehab one more time to kick his addiction to the bad nectar.

Brolin, who is prone to pullin’ Sean Penn antics and whoopin’ a trick, got into a tussle in Santa Monica over the weekend at a bar and saw the demons rising back up inside of him and realized he had to do something.

The rehab center is reportedly in northern California and we will see in a few months if this is the end of his liquor tirades.

Stay tuned…
