That’s the question some may ask upon discovering that 17-year-old Dakota Fanning is on the cover of the sort of raunchy women’s magazine next to headlines like “Um, Vagina, Are You Okay Down There?” and “His Best Sex Ever.” The actress — who turns 18 next month — is introduced inside the mag with the headline, “Welcome To Your Cosmo Years, Dakota,” which I guess means she’s on the precipice of adding words like “manhood” to her everyday vernacular, using her thong as a hair tie during oral sex, and taking terrible sex advice? Ugh, growing up sucks. [NY Mag]
“I want to make our wedding just about me and her loving each other. We want to get married in front of our friends and family and keep it normal. It ain’t about selling the pictures, it ain’t about doing no prenup.”
That’s what Russell Brand had to say back in October 2010, just days before he wed Katy Perry in an extravagant ceremony in India. Now, of course, it seems like Brand lucked out, at least financially. Last Friday, the comedian filed for divorce from Katy Perry (who didn’t want to file herself and offend her extremely religious parents) and the couples’ assets are up for grabs. Brand apparently stands to make, gulp, an estimated $20 million from the pop star’s fortune because, under California law, the state’s community property clause splits money and property acquired during the union 50/50 when there isn’t a prenup. Someone should have told Katy that rich “California Girls” cover their assets before walking down the aisle. It remains to be seen, of course, how this will actually play out in court and whether Brand will actually go for “his” half of Katy’s fortune. [Hollywood Life]

“I’ve seen circumstances with people that I know are in love with their spouse and they made one mistake and I said — this is somebody that I know, nobody that anybody knows here, ‘Listen, if this really was a one time mistake, and you did not put this person in jeopardy,’ I personally think you should deal with it with yourself and with God and not go and say: ‘Honey look what I did,’ because I knew that this would ruin their relationship and their life. And I can tell you that many, many, many years later they’re happy and together and she did make that mistake and she has to carry that and live with that.”
– Kyle Richards of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (and Paris Hilton’s aunt) appeared on “Good Morning America” to promote her book and shared this sage advice to Robin Roberts. She was explaining a passage in her book, Life Is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real With The Housewife Who Does It All, in which she advises, ”If you cheat once, don’t tell. You get a free pass.” Keep reading »
