Joe Manganiello Of “True Blood” Has A Stalker Problem

Joe Manganiello of “True Blood” is, apparently, a stalker magnet. Even before permanently losing his shirt for the role of Alcide, Joe had a few rabid followers. “I’ve had two crazy stalkers that, ah, one would call and leave these really weird poems on my phone. Another one would send these creepy pictures to my house,” he said. “I was at the police station filing this report and the police officer’s trying to figure out who these guys are and I kind of looked at him and shrugged my shoulders and said, ‘It’s never a hot chick.’ And he just kind of stared at me.”

But since “True Blood”‘s new season started, things have gotten much worse. Keep reading »

Cue The Natalie Portman Oscar Buzz

Natalie Portman is gorgeous. And smart. And funny. And forever the quirky girl of every man’s dreams after her Shins-playing role in “Garden State.” And according to early reviews of “Black Swan,” Natalie may soon also be an Oscar winner. The flick premiered last night at the Venice Film Festival, and reviewers’ opinions of the movie as a whole seem to vary. But they all seem to agree that Natalie is amazing as Nina, a ballerina teetering on the edge when her company’s artistic director doesn’t believe she has the depth to play both the White Swan and the Black Swan in a reinterpretation of “Swan Lake” and brings in another dancer for the darker Black Swan part, Lily, played by Mila Kunis. Apparently, Natalie has been talking to director Darren Aronofsky about this part for almost a decade. Keep reading »

Jane Fonda Releasing New Aerobics Videos At 72

Jane Fonda might be 72, but she still looks darn good in spandex. In late November, she’s releasing two new exercise DVDs called “Jane Fonda Prime Time.” “I’m very excited to be back in the fitness business,” Jane says. “I know from experience and from my research how critical it is for boomers and seniors to be physically active. Even if they’ve never exercised in their lives, now’s the time and my programs are a good, safe way to do it.” But, uh, hi Jane—we 20- and 30-somethings are going to be getting the DVDs, too. I mean, you left us hanging since 1995. Keep reading »

Cocaine? I Thought It Was Gum! 10 Celebrity Excuses For Drug Busts

drug excuse paris hilton jpg
When Paris Hilton was caught with a baggie containing nearly a gram of cocaine over the weekend, she told Las Vegas police officers that she thought it was gum. Then she backed up, telling the officers that the purse wasn’t hers—she borrowed it from a friend, so some of the items in it weren’t hers. This is comical because since when does coke look like gum? Also, since when does Paris have to borrow a purse—doesn’t she have a different one for every day of the year, err, decade? [People]

But this isn’t even the most outlandish excuse a star has given when being busted for drugs.

Rachel Uchitel Feels Healed By “Celebrity Rehab”

Rachel Uchitel has had a rocky road on “Celebrity Rehab.” She agreed to do the show to deal with her Ambien addiction and “emotional issues,” which most people assumed to mean her tendency to get involved with married and famous men—she was linked not only to Tiger Woods but also David Boreanaz. But in late July, she abruptly left the show after an intense therapy session and checked into a hotel. She returned less than 24 hours later, after hearing pleas from the producers and co-stars Janice Dickinson, Eric Roberts (bro of Julia), and Jason Wahler (of “The Hills”). The freak-out was apparently over having to talk about her father, who died of a cocaine overdose when she was 15.

Last week, Rachel visited the site of another trauma with Dr. Drew. She made the trek to Ground Zero. Keep reading »

Quotable: Kate Hudson Not Scared To Get Married Again

“It’s definitely not something I’m looking for. But the divorce doesn’t put me off. I’ll just see what happens. I think a lot of times people are terrified of love and stop themselves from experiencing it. I don’t ever want to get that jaded. I do believe in love. I believe that when you really open yourself up to love, it’s the most beautiful thing.”

Kate Hudson explains her feelings on marriage post-divorce to British Elle. But the only deets she’d give on new boyfriend Matthew Bellamy of Muse? “He’s lovely.” Boring. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
