Will Smith Responds To James Avery’s Death

willsmith

Last week we heard the sad news about James Avery and his death that happened due to complications from open heart surgery. James, best known as Uncle Phil, on the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” series was the voice of reason on the show that aired from 1990 to 1996. Avery played the family patriarch and a wealthy attorney and judge on the popular television comedy. And let me tell you, it was one of my favorite shows growing up. I had my VCR set every week for this one, yo!

And this show was basically THE show that launched Will Smith’s acting career.

While many of the other cast members expressed their condolences after hearing of the death of James Avery, Will Smith took some time to respond and did so via his Facebook page.

He wrote, “Some of my greatest lessons in Acting, Living and being a respectable human being came through James Avery. Every young man needs an Uncle Phil. Rest in Peace.” I think we all learned a lot from James Avery, no?

In addition, Smith posted the above photo of the last time he and Avery were together.

Avery’s death was announced on New Years eve via Twitter by Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Avery’s son Carlton.

amber-leign

There have been rumors for years that Robin Roberts is gay, but now in a public thank you note via Facebook, Robin Roberts girlfriend Amber Leign is thanked.

It was a touching pre New Year’s message that “Good Morning America” co-host and cancer survivor Robin Roberts wanted to put out there in celebration of Sunday marking the one-year anniversary of her 100 days post transplant.

Roberts thanked her loved ones for a year of health and publicly acknowledged that she is a lesbian.

robin

She shared via her Facebook page, “Flashback 12/29/12….Hard to believe this was 1 year ago today..when I reached a critical milestone of 100 days post transplant…and KJ was finally allowed to come back home. Reading this comforts me and I hope the same for you: “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”

At this moment I am at peace and filled with joy and gratitude. I am grateful to God, my doctors and nurses for my restored good health. I am grateful for my sister, Sally-Ann, for being my donor and giving me the gift of life. I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together. I am grateful for the many prayers and well wishes for my recovery. I return every one of them to you 100 fold.”

She went on to add, “On this last Sunday of 2013 I encourage you to reflect on what you are grateful for too. Wishing you a Healthy and Happy New Year. Peace, love, and blessings to all..XO

So what do we know about Robin Roberts’ girlfriend Amber Leign? Apparently Roberts and Leign have been together for more than TEN years!

Laign is a licensed massage therapist who specializes in treating patients recovering from injuries. Robin and Amber met through mutual friends and they are living together in New York.

Rob Kardashian Secret Love Child?

rob-kardashian-cheryl-burke2011-12-08_05-35-31macys-launch-nyc

A Rob Kardashian love child? Gawd help us please. NOT another Kardashian. Apparently there is a love child that lives among us and is the spawn of Rob Kardashian, or so says Star magazine.

This news has kind of been buried among us as in the news has been revealed before, just very quietly dug up and then re-buried.

It was back in 2009, we heard about a possible love child that Kardashian bred, and now it is back in the headlines. So will Rob admit the news? Will Kris Jenner have a big fat fight?

An insider tells the magazine that Rob admitted being a daddy during a recent get-together at his apartment when friends noticed a teddy bear on his bed. “He said that it was a present for his son,” says the source.

Another insider adds, “The possibility that Rob may have a child has been the buzz in the Kardashian circle for a while, but no one knows for sure. And no one will talk about it.”

Rob has, however, hinted at having a son in the past. In May, he posted an Instagram note that read, “Shout to to God … Shout out Mom, shout out to my son’s mom cuz she been holding me down since high school n shout out to my son Robert the Third. lol”

But, of course he quickly deleted that post.

AND…

Then, in 2009 Rob shared a Twitter exchange with Nicole Richie saying, “Bout to take time today to see the ones whom I never see …” Richie responded with, “Like your son?” and he then tweeted with, “My son unfortunately doesn’t stay in L.A. You know that. Don’t remind me.”

So could it be that this baby mama doesn’t want anything to do with the limelight and just wants to collect her paychecks?

And could it be that Kris Jenner thinks that this news could ruin their brand that is already crumbling on its own?

Kristin Cavallari Reveals The Truth Behind Her Breakup with Jay Cutler Prior To Their Wedding

Mike Coppola/Getty Images for Bethenny

Kristin Cavallari was on the Bethenny Frankel show recently and revealed a whole lot about her breakup and makeup with Jay Cutler. Check out the highlights from the interview below.

Bethenny: They said you got pregnant to keep your boyfriend.

Kristin: So, Jay and I got engaged.

Bethenny: Which by the way is not really the greatest way to keep a boyfriend.

Kristin: If you knew anything about it is the last thing I would do. Jay and I got engaged really quickly after 8 months and we had a lot of things to work on. So, I broke up with him because some things needed to change and the only way he was going to see how serious I was was if I broke up with him. It wasn’t the end. The long story short, the press basically said he left me at the altar and I’m devastated and this and that, which was so far from the truth and I didn’t say anything because I didn’t feel it was anyone’s business. I was like let’s just let it die down. We got back together literally three weeks later.

Bethenny: What did you do? You lost all contact? What was that three weeks like?

Kristin: I tried to lose all contact. That didn’t happen. I actually did “DWTS” which he didn’t want me to do.

Bethenny: Well of course seeing you in those costumes grinding with those sexy men.

Kristin: Right, so I did some things that he didn’t want me to do but I was like I am going to make my own decisions, I’m going to do what I want to do.

Oh snap. I guess we know who wears the pants in THAT relationship!

Lea Michele Would Take A New Job As An X-Factor Judge

lea-michele

Via Extra TV

“Extra’s” Terri Seymour caught up with Lea Michele on Wednesday at part one of “The X Factor” season finale.

Demi Lovato indeed confirmed she is leaving as a judge to concentrate on her music, and Michele revealed she would be interested in being a replacement, if creator Simon Cowell asked.

The “Glee” star laughed, “I probably will stalk him because I’m such a fan, and I think he is so awesome! FOX is my family; this is my home… If “X Factor” wants to have me, I’m around.”

Lea also told Terri that she and her late boyfriend Cory Monteith did get matching tattoos a few years back.

Michele recalled, “I remember we were at the Teen Choice Awards, a couple of years ago, and you said to me, ‘What is this rumor that you and Cory have gotten secret tattoos together?’ and I turned beet red and I was like, ‘What do you mean, what are you talking about… How did you know?!’” Terri smiled, “I just knew!” Lea responded, “Now you have the exclusive on ‘Extra’!”

The “The X Factor” finale concludes tonight on FOX!

Mark Wahlberg on Family, Faith, and the Importance of Legos

mark-wahlberg

In a candid interview with Parade, Mark Wahlberg opened up about receiving his high school diploma earlier this year, the big role faith plays in his life, who makes up his “entourage” these days, his new film, Lone Survivor, and more!

Here are the highlights:

What were your biggest takeaways from filming Lone Survivor?
It takes a very special individual to become a SEAL. I felt it was so important to give the guys who never came down off that mountain their due. My wife couldn’t talk for 45 minutes after she saw the movie. All she kept thinking about were the sons and fathers and mothers and daughters out there fighting for our freedom. You take it for granted.

How do you spend Sundays?
If the kids are good, I’ll have doughnuts for them at 6:30 in the morning, and I’ll say, “You guys gotta let Mommy sleep in!” I’ll go to church at 7:30 and everybody will be eating breakfast when I come home. Then we’ll go to church again at 10:30, if things aren’t too hectic. Or if one of the kids has a game we’ll watch them play. It’s a nice family day.

Faith is obviously a big part of your life.
It’s the most important part of my life. I don’t try to push it on anybody and I don’t try to hide it.

What would people be surprised to know about you?
My sons and I thoroughly enjoy Legos. We go to the toy store every week for more. I never want to take what we build apart; I want to put it on a shelf. My wife is starting to get a little annoyed with the Legos lying around.

Who’s in your entourage now?
My wife, the kids, and a wonderful nanny. When I’m filming, all the guys are with me; but if I’m not at work, I’m with my family.

Did you feel you had a lot to prove early in your career?
Certainly. I don’t think it was customary for people from a music background to be accepted in film in a serious way. Considering what I had to overcome, I’ve had plenty to motivate me. Even more so today—I’m passionate about what I do. I’m a little older, but I’m not getting lazy!

Dylan Sprouse Nude Photos LEAKED: Another Disney Star Makes Headlines!

dylan-sprouse

Welp, another Disney star is in the news for nothing good, unless you are into seeing other people’s privates. The next victim? Dylan Sprouse! Nude photos leaked today show the star and his junk in all their glory.

So how did the star react to the leaked pics? Well, he wrote a long freakin’ blog, not leaving out one ounce of feeling.

dylan-sprouse1

“I figured I would write my thoughts on it all. After having a night to sleep on it and a day to reflect, I think there has been ample time to gather my thoughts while the encounter is still fresh.

First off, I will state that the reason I’m making light of the situation is because I don’t think what I did was wrong. To be blunt, I was proud of my progress in the gym, thought I looked hot, and wanted to share it. I’m of the mindset that whoever you are, if you are proud of your body and want to show it off, so be it! You do you. There is an odd taboo with the human form (especially in the USA) and I don’t particularly think its a good thing to teach people that you should “hide yourself” as something incredibly sacred. Blah blah blah, that’s a medieval notion.

Secondly, the real problem here was not me sending my pictures to someone, but rather, sending them to the WRONG someone. The real travesty is a misplaced trust, and while I am certainly to blame for it, it is a shame that my private life was somehow forcibly dragged into the public’s perception of me. What is wrong is that, generally I try to stay cool and collected with my prose and a role model for kids (maybe not anymore shamefully) and this seemingly inconsequential act will likely affect the youth’s impression of me. Not only that, but I worry somewhat for my artistic integrity, and my academic integrity. Not exactly ideal, but I’m to blame and I’ll look this incident in the eye like a man. I did it, but I’d be damned if I didn’t own that shit like Beyonce would want me to.

Finally though, and I think that this is the most important part, because of this, I gained 200,000 followers on twitter, 40,000 followers on tumblr, and 20,000 followers on instagram…. It seems to me that the majority of people are actually praising this act as some sort of device to receive fame (or infamy). Why? I have no clue, I don’t entirely condone it though. I’ll make it clear my intent was for this not to happen, and how it has affected me so positively is an enigma to me that rings true of the human condition. Maybe people just like to see others mess up? I’m German by blood, so I feel you on that.

tl;dr? I was proud of myself and my progress since I was 14 and husky, I’m not proud of this incident’s potential lasting effects on my academic and artistic integrity. But I’m making the best of it through humor and I’m getting this shirt made today:

sprouse

I figured that if every interaction I have from here on is a chance of them having seen me like this, I may as well just show them anyways heh heh.

P.S. please stop sending me nudes you will not get any in return despite popular evidence”

Someone ain’t too proud. What are your thoughts on the Dylan Sprouse nude photos? I say, NOT bad!

Jennifer Aniston Talks Turning 45, Her Short New Haircut and How In Love She Is

jennifer

In a candid interview with Parade, Jennifer Aniston opened up about her upcoming 45th birthday, why right now is the best time of her life, her short new haircut, and more!

Here are the highlights via our friends at Parade:

Have you had a favorite hairstyle through the years?
“Well, that’s a good question because I just chopped it all off! I’m loving it right now. It’s right below my ear. I went short! But I do that every couple of years. It’s just nice to do something different. We were at a photo shoot the other day and I just said let’s chop it off! It was one of those moments. I love doing something different and changing it up, but at the end of the day, I’m a lover of long hair. I just think it’s beautiful. I would have to say that’s my go-to fave.”

Lots of women envy your hair, but do you ever have hair envy?
“I think Giselle [Bundchen] has exquisite hair. That’s a pretty envious head of hair! And I love Kate Moss. She always has great hair.”

When do you feel most beautiful?
“I feel most beautiful when I’m just at home with [fiance] Justin Theroux in the morning. Or any time of day I’m with him.”

There are always so many rumors and reports surrounding you, but what do you want your real fans to know about your life right now?
“My life is so fantastic. I’m so happy. There are a lot of exciting things that I’m excited about doing. We’re about to do a sequel to Horrible Bosses, which is such a fun character for me. And I think I’m going to try at some point next year to direct a full-length feature, which I’m extremely excited about. I’m just so happy and I’m grateful for my fans. I just hope I keep doing work that they love.”

You’ll be 45 in February. What do you know now that you didn’t at 25?
“That there’s nothing to worry about — although I don’t think I had a care in the world at 25, either. That all started in my 30s, my awkward phase. I’m a little bit of a late bloomer! But it doesn’t matter to me because it just gets better. They do say youth is wasted on the young, but I feel just as youthful now — if not more — than I did when I was 25. I’m more in my body; I’m more in my mind. Life is full. Life is wonderful. We’re very, very fortunate.”

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom Divorce Papers Filed!

1341865726_khloe-kardashian-467

Apparently Khloe has had enough! It’s a done deal for Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom. Divorce papers have been filed and surprisingly I don’t think things are going to get nasty.

She has reportedly asked the judge to legally drop “Odom” from her name (which she already officially did on Twitter), and good news for Lamar, she is not asking for any spousal support. She’s got her own money, yo.

This news shouldn’t come as surprising to many. The question I had on my mind was whether Khloe was going to pull a Hilary Clinton and stand by her man through thick and thin or if she was just going to let him go.

Even though it appears as if Lamar may be back on the straight and narrow as far as staying away from drugs, it’s hard to really know for sure what is going on.

Perhaps now that these papers are filed, he’s ready to celebrate! He didn’t get jail time for his DUI arrest in September AND he is officially (well, almost) done with the Kardashian women who have seemingly been successful in driving their men away from them.

I’d like to know what Kris Jenner thinks of all this.

Carl Crawford is Evelyn Lozada’s Baby Daddy

carl-crawford

Carl Crawford is Evelyn Lozada’s baby daddy, which means he’s in for a real treat. Child support till the baby is 18, yo! No, but while Lozada has revealed that Crawford is the man who got her knocked up (and not creepy Chad Ochocinco Johnson), I’m thinking she’s actually a bit proud that Chad isn’t the baby daddy.

evelyn-lozada

The LA Dodgers player seems like a good enough guy and I really hope he steps up to the plate (no pun intended…okay, maybe that was pretty clever?!) to be there for Evelyn during this pregnancy and there after.

During an interview with omg! Insider on Friday, Lozada revealed the identity of her baby daddy and let everyone know that her due date is in March 2014. (Making it about the month of July that she and Mr. Carl Crawford got it in!)

So what is her future with Carl?

Lozada said she’s not in a hurry to walk down the aisle. “I definitely would get married again. I still believe in love … I’m not one of those people that’s like, “We need to get engaged, we need to get married.” No, absolutely not. I feel like that’s going to come, just like with the baby, let it come. I’m not forcing anything, so if it happens, it happens.”

She went on to add, “I am so excited to announce a wonderful blessing…I’m pregnant! I’m excited about being a mommy all over again. This is something I’ve been wanting for years and I can’t believe it’s finally happening.”

Lozada is already a mother to 20-year-old Shaniece from a previous relationship.

There has not yet been word from Evelyn’s baby daddy Carl Crawford.
