More than just celebrity gossip

Brad Pitt’s Attacker Vitalii Sediuk Opens Up, “I don’t think something is wrong with me, I just, I am a different guy who thinks differently”

Vitalii Sediuk

Via Extra TV:

“Extra’s” Mario Lopez sat down with Vitalii Sediuk the Ukrainian reporter accused of attacking Brad Pitt at the “Maleficent” premiere.

Mario asking Vitalii who is now infamous for red carpet pranks around the world, including shoving his head up America Ferrera’s dress, kissing Will Smith and grabbing Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper’s crotches, the question everyone wants to know, what’s wrong with you. Vitalii’s response, nothing, “I don’t think something is wrong with me, I just, I am a different guy who thinks differently and has this entertainment spirit that probably people in Hollywood never experienced before…It’s something different, controversial, extraordinary and it’s hard to explain..I’m normal, at least I believe so.”

Vitalii who claims his intention was to hug Brad Pitt with an apology for the actor and the others he affected , “I’ll say, don’t be mad, I apologize for inconveniences that I created to many celebrities dealing with my style of entertainment…I feel sorry that I create inconveniences for Brangelina family because I knew there were no kids around, but they were at the premiere, but I kind of stole the spotlight from such an important moment.”

Vitallii also admitting now there are consequences to his actions after losing his job and getting fined, sentenced to community service, facing 36 months of probation, and being forced to say away from all award shows and red carpet events “I wouldn’t joke with the judge and I took them seriously because one thing you do for entertainment and other thing when you have legal problems and I have to tell you they’re so many consequences I experience now.”

As for what’s up next for Vitallii he said, “No more big stars and events left for me so probably I will retire.”

Retire? Wow, okay. He’s no dummy. Why would he say what he is going to do next? Silly Mario.

Giuliana Rancic Opens Up About Her Surrogate Losing Their Second Baby

Giuliana Rancic has been through a lot of crap in her life. Good grief. I don’t know how in the heck she can handle it all. And just recently she lost her SECOND baby.

She opens up via Extra TV:

Giuliana Rancic joined “Extra’s” Mario Lopez at Universal Studios Hollywood. Giuliana opening up about the news that her surrogate, 9 weeks pregnant with the Rancics’ second baby, has suffered a miscarriage.

Giuliana said the couple who had tried all season for a new baby get the sad news on the season finale to her hit reality show “Giuliana and Bill”, “Thankfully we’ve had some time to process the news…It was hard…I mean when you get that call that you’ve had a miscarriage, I’ve had a miscarriage myself that I talked about a few years ago, before we had Duke, then our surrogate had one and we were just devastated.”

Giuliana telling Mario that the news wasn’t only hard for them, but their surrogate, who also carried their first son.“Our priority at the time, once we were able to take the emotion out of it a little bit, we wanted to make sure our surrogate who carried Duke for us, that knew she it was not her fault, this is something that is so common, it happens all the time, it happened to me, we wanted her to feel ok with it. She’s good with it, she’s also processed it, we’re all moving forward.”

Rancic revealing it was tough to get the news while being filmed for her show, “We wanted to hear the news then get away from the camera to process it ourselves and that why it probably comes off a little ambiguous tomorrow night, but we wanted to clear it up.”

Giuliana saying the couple will try again for another baby, “We had to take a break, it’s just a lot to digest and were just trying to figure it out now that a little time had passed we’re trying to figure out when is a good time to start again…Our surrogate, we would love her to be on board were not gonna pressure her in anyway, but she says she’s on board.”

She continued, Bill and I want another baby more than anything else. It’s god’s plan…Our faith is very important to us and I know everything happens for a reason…I’ve been through a lot, breast cancer, infertility. miscarriage, I’ve been through a lot, but somehow, you know the big man always figures it out…We’re so happy today and we always get though things, we’re gonna keep fighting.”

The Arsenio Hall Show Is Officially Canceled

Television can be unpredictable, and Arsenio Hall knows all too well. After his late night talk show, The Arsenio Hall Show, was renewed back in February, news came today that the show will not be returning for a second season.

CBS Television Distribution took back the decision, canceling the show after only one season. “Unfortunately, The Arsenio Hall Show will not return for a second season; while there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue,” CBSTVD said in a statement Friday. “Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we’d like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We’d also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for their support of the show.”

Arsenio said in a statement, “When I started this adventure with CTD and Tribune, we all knew it would be a challenge — I’m gratified for the year we’ve had and proud of the show we created. I’d like to thank everyone on my staff for rallying around me and striving to make the best show possible every night.”

This really sucks! Arsenio is a really talented host, and has had a lot of great interviews and performances with celebrities the entire season. Unfortunately though, in a market where everyone is breaking into talk shows, the ratings are split, and it’s rough competition to stay afloat. Sad that Arsenio didn’t make the cut, but I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear of him. Or, at least, I hope not!

Jason Biggs Responds to Twitter Controversy About ‘Bachelorette’ Contestant Eric Hill

We all know that Jason Biggs is a bit of a prankster, cripes I’d even call him a bit of a comedian.

Jason who is known for tweeting humorous commentaries while watching programs like “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” responding to recent headlines about his tweets regarding deceased “The Bachelorette” contestant Eric Hill.

He then added, “Here’s what I can tell you without watching – 8 of the 20 guys are in the closet, all of them work out, and 2 can do simple division. And 19 of them are still alive. #TooSoon.”
Jason making it clear he was joking, “I tweet The Bachelor, Bachelorette, and then it’s just fun to wake up on Tuesday mornings and see what articles are written about what tweet I wrote…Like the people are quote unquote up in arms about or Jason Biggs is under fire, and I’m like how am I under fire.”

Jason and his wife both very active on Twitter and it is all in good fun, “”We are joking, we don’t take anything too seriously, nothing is off limits.”

Bella Thorne Basically Changed Her Boyfriend

June-July 2014 - Bella Thorne

Via Seventeen:

Bella Thorne appears on the cover of Seventeen’s June/July 2014 cover (on stands May 20th). For the actress, the next three months are all about trying new things. After finishing the final season of the Disney Channel’s hit show Shake It Up, this summer Thorne will star in her first major movie, Blended, alongside Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler. In addition, she will release her first album, continue working on a fiction series called Autumn Falls, and appear in ad campaigns for Candie’s and Neutrogena (she is the newest and youngest ever Neutrogena girl!).

In her interview with Seventeen, Thorne discusses her ambition, her relationship with boyfriend Tristan Klier, her love for Blended costar Drew Barrymore and more.

On her ambition: “I get my ambition from my father. [Editor’s note: he passed away when Bella was 9.] There was no stopping him; it didn’t matter what anybody said. For me, I feel like it’s a cool way to bring him into my life because he did great things in his life, and I want to emulate that.”

On her relationship with Shake It Up costar, Zendaya: “The truth is we are so different, there is no competition. And when people tried to compare us or turn us against each other, we’d just talk about it, and then everything was cool. We love each other.”

On her relationship with boyfriend, Tristan Klier: “Tristan was not a relationship guy before me. On our first date, he thought I was going to be just like the other girls he had met who would always give it up and kiss him right away…I waited six weeks – I had to make sure he was in it to win it.”

On Blended costar, Drew Barrymore: “Drew [Barrymore] is so positive and beautiful on the inside and out. On the set of Blended, she always had a smile and looked at the positive side of things. I learned from that, and I think other girls should too.”

Mila Kunis Talks About Pregnancy and Engagement to Ashton Kutcher

Mila Kunis is FINALLY opening up about her pregnancy and engagement to Ashton Kutcher! The actress did an interview with Ellen DeGeneres set to air later today on Ellen’s talk show, discussing her cravings and birth plans, as well as her future with Ashton!

Mila told Ellen that she and Ashton already have a name picked out for the baby, though not revealing the gender or the name (rumor has it that it’s a girl!). She also revealed her “very stereotypical” pregnancy cravings.  “I eat sauerkraut all day long,” Mila admitted. “This is the worst craving to have because sauerkraut smells and so every time you open up a jar, it just reeks in the whole kitchen…It’s not like ice cream where everything smells lovely.” She also has been craving pickles, and Ashton keep a fridge stocked with all these crazy foods just for her!

Something else special that Ashton has been doing for Mila? Learning Russian. “He’s been taking classes for probably like six months now,” Mila said, acknowledging that she’s fluent in the language. . “He does it twice a week. A woman comes to the house to give him lessons…It’s really, really great.”

When the question arose as to what Mila would do when the baby is on the way, the actress said she wants a natural birth. “We watched a couple of documentaries and we looked into the…midwife aspect of it and things, and spoke to my OB/GYN and realized that the hospital that I’m going to be laboring in does a midwife, you know, doula type of thing,” she explained. “So I’m gonna do it as all-natural as I possibly can unless there’s an emergency or something.”

Check out the interview below!

I’ll tell you one thing, that’s going to be a gorgeous baby! I always wanted Mila and Ashton to be together, and now they are, and they seem so happy and in love!

Donnie Wahlberg Knew He Wanted to Propose to Jenny McCarthy Two Months Into Dating

Donnie Wahlberg may be an engaged man now, but apparently he knew the whole time that he wanted to be with Jenny McCarthy for life!

Via our friends at Extra:

“Extra” was with Donnie Wahlberg in his hometown of Boston as he cheered on the runners at the 2014 Boston Marathon, including his brother, Jim.

Wahlberg opened up for the first time about his engagement to Jenny McCarthy, saying he knew he wanted to propose shortly after he and “The View” co-host began dating. “Probably planned it about two months into us dating, but things take time and I just waited until the moment was right.”

Wahlberg thought the engagement wasn’t exactly a surprise for Jenny. “I don’t know if it was a surprise… it might’ve been a race because she kept threatening to propose to me. Not to make me do it, she just wanted to get engaged, so did I it first. I’m a little old-fashioned. I wasn’t going to let her get on one knee.”

The two haven’t started the wedding planning just yet. “No details yet. We’ll do it when it’s right, but so far everything is awesome.”

As for being at the marathon, Donnie called it, “overwhelming.” He said it was a “very proud day for Boston and America.”

Donnie’s brother Jim will join the A&E family reality show “The Wahlburgers” next season.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck: “I don’t think I am or will ever be the best at what I do.”

This month, Fox & Friends’ newest anchor chats with Ladies’ Home Journal about what it was like leaving The View, her secret to 2:45 a.m. wake up calls and how she spent her first night with husband and former pro quarterback Tim Hasselbeck. The May 2014 issue of Ladies’ Home Journal hits newsstands April 13th, 2014.

Check out the highlights below.

On joining Fox & Friends after leaving The View:
“It was like going from hanging out with your sisters to playing catch with your brothers. I don’t think I am or will ever be the best at what I do but I try really hard. My parents gave me the freedom to pursue passions and take sensible risks.”

On getting up at 2:45 a.m. for her job:
“I don’t even put one foot out of bed without reaching for my concealer. I have concealer everywhere: in my coat pocket, on my nightstand, in my car. The alarm goes off and I feel for my glasses. I put the concealer on and I’m ready to start my day.”

On her first date with husband Tim Hasselbeck:
“We met when we were students at Boston College. We got locked out of the dorm we both lived in. There was nowhere to go, so we sat up against a bike rack and fell asleep holding hands. That first date lasted 14 hours. It wasn’t magical – we had our backs up against a metal bike rack! – but it felt strangely comfortable.”

On what I learned from being on Survivor in 2011:
“I don’t like to fish. I don’t like being out in the wilderness. I don’t want to be with an animal that doesn’t have a cute name or an owner. I went in thinking I was tough and I found out I wasn’t tough at all. But I learned that facing your weaknesses can make you stronger.”
On her first pair of glasses growing up: “People tried to talk me out of buying them. But when I finally knew I would be able to see better with glasses, I wanted the biggest pair so I wouldn’t miss a thing.”

On the biggest minconception about her:
“That I’m super-organized and type A. I’m a wannabe type A. I don’t even see the messes I make. Right now I probably have an apple rotting at the bottom of my bag.”

Amanda Bynes’ Mother Lynn Bynes Takes Daughter Off Meds!

Amanda Bynes’ mother Lynn Bynes has now come out publicly saying that her daughter does NOT suffer from Schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Apparently the only problem Amanda had was week.

And now after all the crazy, Amanda is off all medications. Lynn Bynes says, “She has no mental illness whatsoever.”

TMZ reports that

“Amanda was placed on an LPS Hold last year after a judge heard evidence in the psychiatric hospital where she was being held. According to California law, someone can be placed on an LPS Hold only when the person remains “gravely disabled as the result of a mental disorder or impairment by chronic alcoholism.” As we reported, doctors presented evidence of grave mental illness.

Amanda’s mom won a temporary conservatorship after a court-appointed investigator determined Amanda was severely mentally ill. The judge granted the conservatorship order not too long after Amanda soaked her dog in gasoline and almost lit it on fire.

Amanda’s lawyers in both California and New York won delays in her criminal cases based on mental illness.

Sources directly connected to Amanda and her treatment tell TMZ Amanda was given a complex Rx cocktail in a Ventura County psych hospital specifically for Schizophrenia.

Amanda spent weeks at the UCLA psych ward and at times was so incoherent she had to be restrained. Amanda left after she became freaked out by other patients. Sources tell us, during Amanda’s stay at a Ventura County psych hospital, she would tell doctors about the “Bad Amanda” and mimicked an exorcism and began biting herself.

Tamar Arminak, the celebrity lawyer who reps Amanda’s mom, tells TMZ, “Amanda is now on zero medication.” Her mother believes all the talk about Schizophrenia is false and that’s why she took her off the meds. The mom says she’s had no psychotic episodes in the last few months.

And now we are hearing that sources close to the child actor are scared that Bynes is off the meds. Um, I certainly have a hard time believing that all that cray cray was from a little bit of pot smoking. Excuse me, but do you see Snoop Dogg or Wiz Khalifa acting like a crazy person starting fires in their neighbors driveway and calling people ugly on Twitter?

Exactly. There’s a whole lot of something going on with Miss Bynes! Here’s hoping her mother snaps out of her denial real quick.

Lindsay Lohan and David Letterman Prank Call Oprah (VIDEO)

Lindsay Lohan stopped by the David Letterman “Late Show” to chit chat. But one of the highlights was when she and Dave had a little fun prank calling Oprah. During the taping of Wednesday night’s show, Letterman pretended to be Lohan’s secretary and called Oprah from his desk. This led to a little bit of a confusion on Oprah’s end until Letterman admitted who he was.

However, this funny moment turned into a bit of an emotional one for Lindsay.

Even though he had Lindsay right in front of him to ask how she was doing, he decided to ask Oprah how Lohan is REALLY doing as she took Lohan under wing.

Oprah told Letterman, “I think she’s doing really OK, I think to have cameras following you around for every phase of your life, and you’re trying to pull your life together, I think that’s a really difficult thing.”

After hearing Oprah’s words, Lindsay got all teary.

And that folks was NOT acting. Maybe Lindsay really IS getting better? Check out Lindsay Lohan and David Letterman pranking Oprah in the video below.

Pharrell Joining The Voice, Adam Levine Might Not Be Returning As Judge

adam-levine

For all of you “The Voice” fans, you may be getting some sad news soon. Adam Levine, who has been on The Voice for six seasons, may not be coming back.

Via our friends at Extra TV:

Levine has been a mainstay on “The Voice” for the past six seasons, but will he return for a seventh? “Extra’s” special correspondent Charissa Thompson caught up with the singer, who admitted he was excited about the Pharrell news, but didn’t know if he would be joining new coach Pharrell for the next cycle.

Adam said, “Man that’s great…When I found out that news, don’t know if we’ll be joining him because once again I’m checking my schedule, so when I verify I will be more excited.”

Usher also weighed in on Pharrell, saying, “I’m really happy, given that I felt like maybe I had some influence in the decision, given the fact that he came in as a mentor with me.”

Shakira offered her support, saying, “I love Pharrell, he’s great, I’ve worked with him in the past, he’s really awesome, he’s gonna do a terrific job I’m sure.”

I’m sure Pharrell will be awesome, but if Adam leaves I think it definitely will be a different show.

Who is your favorite The Voice judge?

James Franco Apologizes For Trying To Lure A 17-Year-Old Girl To A Hotel

james-franco

James Franco went on Live with Kelly and Michael and apologized for being a creeper…basically.

Here’s the story, in case you haven’t heard…

Thirty five year old James Franco met 17 year old girl Lucy Clode at a signing in New York City. At the time he didn’t know how old she was. But that meeting then led to Franco hitting on her on Instagram thru private messages…which then led to text messages, which led to Franco offering to get a hotel room for them. Booty call, perhaps? I think so. The creepy part of all of this is that he asked her age, knew she was underage and continued thinking with his head (and not the one connected to his neck and shoulders.

It wouldn’t be long before we would ALL know about this. And of course, this all got out to the media and Franco is now the big headline of April 4th, 2014. Today during an appearance on Live! with Kelly and Michael, Franco was a guest and did address his flirtatious Instagram exchange with Miss Clode. But you could tell he was feeling quite uncomfortable.

During the interview with Kelly and Michael, Franco admitted, “I was feeling awkward — I didn’t want to come on the show and just feel awkward. I’m embarrassed, and I guess I’m just a model of how social media is tricky. It’s way that people meet each other today, but what I’ve learned — I guess because I’m new to it — is you don’t know who’s on the other end.”

Franco continued, “You get a feel for them, you don’t know who you’re talking to. I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson. Unfortunately, in my position — I mean, I have a very good life, but not only do I have to go through the embarrassing kind of rituals of meeting someone, but if I do that, then it gets published for the world. So now, it’s double embarrassing.”

Well he definitely does get kudos for being honest. Unfortunately now he has been bumped down from my number two crush to my number 10 crush.

On the other spectrum of things, many are speculating that Franco’s social media misstep may have been a publicity stunt tied to his movie Palo Alto, which oddly enough involves his character’s seduction of a high schooler.

Click HERE, HERE and HERE for the creeper Instagram messages.

And the TEXT messages HERE and HERE.

My question is, did Franco REALLY think that this girl wasn’t going to say anything?!! Duh, she’s 17!!!
