Halle Berry’s Current Guy Made Citizen’s Arrest On Her Ex

More details are trickling out on the Thanksgiving morning brawl between Halle Berry’s ex, Gabriel Aubry, and her current guy, Olivier Martinez. Witnesses say Aubry, who was dropping off daughter Nahla at Berry’s place, was still in the driveway when Martinez approached him and said, “We have to move on,” apparently a reference to Berry’s bitter custody battle with Aubry, the Daily Mail reports. Aubry then allegedly pushed and punched Martinez and a full-on melee ensued, ending with Martinez pinning Aubry on the ground and performing a citizen’s arrest. Aubry “was booked for a private persons arrest for battery,” an LAPD spokesperson confirms to PeopleRead more…

“Dallas” Star Larry Hagman Dead At 81

JR Ewing was a business cheat, faithless husband, and bottomless well of corruption. Yet with his sparkling grin, Larry Hagman masterfully created the charmingly loathsome oil baron—and coaxed forth a Texas-size gusher of ratings—on television’s long-running and hugely successful nighttime soap, “Dallas.” Although he first gained fame as nice guy Capt. Tony Nelson on the fluffy 1965-70 NBC comedy “I Dream of Jeannie,” Hagman earned his greatest stardom with JR. The CBS serial drama about the Ewing family and those in their orbit aired from April 1978 to May 1991, and broke viewing records with its “Who shot JR?” 1980 cliffhanger that left unclear whether Hagman’s character was dead. (He wasn’t.) Read more…

Casey Anthony Prosecutors Missed Bombshell Evidence

Prosecutors overlooked a bombshell piece of evidence in the Casey Anthony case, Orlando’s WKMG claims. On the day of daughter Caylee’s death, someone did a computer search for “fool-proof suffication [sic]” and accessed an article that recommended using poison. Anthony lawyer Jose Baez was aware of the computer activity, and planned to say Casey’s father, George, was responsible for the searches because he was thinking of killing himself after Caylee accidentally drowned. But the Orange County Sheriff’s Office failed to give prosecutors the evidence, and WKMG’s investigation reveals Casey was most likely the one searching. Read more…

Critics Says Lindsay Lohan Is Hilariously Bad In “Liz & Dick”

“Liz & Dick” premieres Sunday, but some critics are already having a LiLo-bashing party after watching the Elizabeth Taylor biopic, Fox News reports. “It’s just bad. Her voice—she sounds like herself, a smoker from Long Island, and there is no chemistry with her co-star, and she was clearly not prepared,” says one early viewer. Most reviews so far agree Lohan was not the best choice, but here are the best lines from the cattiest review, by Tim Goodman in the Hollywood Reporter:

  • “It should come as no great surprise that Lifetime’s ”Liz & Dick” movie starring Lindsay Lohan is spectacularly bad. … Lohan is woeful as Taylor from start to finish. But, whatever you do, don’t miss ”Liz & Dick.” It’s an instant classic of unintentional hilarity.” Read more…

Angelina Jolie Scores Invite To Jennifer Aniston’s Wedding

We’re sure Angelina Jolie will be so excited to receive this piece of mail: Word has it that she and Brad Pitt will be invited to Jennifer Aniston’s wedding, Australia’s News Network reports. Seems Jen is still friendly with Brad and wanted to invite him, but wasn’t sure how fiance Justin Theroux would feel about it. But since Jen and Justin “are so happy right now, they don’t want any bad feeling in any aspect of their lives by the time they tie the knot,” a source explains to Grazia. Therefore, Theroux gave the OK—and according to some reports, inviting the pair was actually his idea. He’s even met Brad a few times, and likes him, the source adds. Read more…

Keys To A Longer Life: A Puppy And A Spouse

The ticket to a longer life: happiness, reports the Daily Mail. In 1940, Harvard researchers reviewed 200 young, white, healthy men; they checked back in on that group every two years. They found that happiness (stemming from factors like marriage, puppies, and friendships) had more of an impact than social factors (like class, wealth, or hometown). Of the 31 men who remained single, only four are still alive today, but more than a third of the men in “good relationships” are still going strong. Read more…

Why Have 25 Out Of 26 “Sexiest Men” Been White?

Forget how outraged you are that Ryan Gosling was once again not deemed the “Sexiest Man Alive” by People: There’s a real controversy here, and it has nothing to do with the Gos. In 26 years of choosing a sexiest man, the magazine has selected white guys 25 of those times, writes Tricia Romano in the Daily Beast. Even the one exception, Denzel Washington in 1996, is a “lazy choice,” says one of the media professionals Romano spoke to for her column. While Blair Underwood, Taye Diggs, and Idris Elba have been ignored, “Johnny Depp and his rotting teeth” have won twice, Romano writes. Read more…

5 Secret Celebrity Affairs

Blindsided by the fact that Kirstie Alley apparently had emotional affairs with both Patrick Swayze and John Travolta? The Huffington Post lists five more celebrity romances that flew surprisingly under the radar:

  • Jermaine Jackson (we’re sorry, Jacksun) reportedly had an affair with Whitney Houston in the 1980s. He was married at the time, but had feelings for her until her death. Read more…

Pat Robertson: Wait, Women Like Porn?!

You are never going to believe this, dear readers, but some women like porn—a bit of news that came as a major shock to Pat Robertson. “I mean, the thing that shocks me—shocks me—we always thought this was a male thing. A boy thing. A guy thing,” Robertson says in a cringe-worthy “700 Club” clip spotted by Right Wing Watch and The New York Post.

“While most people think of pornography as something men struggle with, a third of the millions of Americans who watch porn are … women! And they’re getting addicted to it!” Roberston went on, as his female co-host strove valiantly to pretend that she, too, was shocked by this revelation. Read more…

“Modern Family” Star Ariel Winter Says “Mom Abused Me”

Ariel Winter, the 14-year-old who plays Alex Dunphy on “Modern Family,” has been granted a restraining order against her mom after alleging abuse. Ariel’s court papers allege some very disturbing behavior by her mom, Chris Workman: “ongoing physical abuse (slapping, hitting, pushing) and emotional abuse (vile name-calling, personal insults about minor and minor’s weight, attempts to ‘sexualize’ minor, deprivation of food, etc.) for an extended period of time.” But Workman tells People the allegations are not true, and that she has letters from doctors and stylists who are on her side. For the time being, a judge granted Ariel’s older sister guardianship until a Nov. 20 hearing. Read more…
