Who Would Meryl Shag?

Saucy little minx Meryl Streep hit up “Watch What Happens Live” for a rousing game of Shun, Shag or Marry with her ex-costars. The options were Robert Redford, Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman. Personally I would have chosen Redford to shag and that offer will remain open until he’s dead. [Bravo TV]

Jada Pinkett Smith Addresses All Those Crazy Divorce Rumors

Remember back in That Time Before Kristen Stewart Took Over the Tabloids (TTBKSTOTT), when everyone was talking about Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith and how they were totally breaking up? It seems like there was a weeks-long period when every celebrity rag in publication was downright obsessed with their relationship, and the rumors went so far as to claim Jada had retained a high-powered divorce attorney, they had split up the kids … and that Will was getting jiggy with actor Duane Martin.

In the latest issue of Essence, Jada addressed the rumors head-on, and I have to admire her for being willing to talk about this crap. Because it has to suck, being asked for the millionth time whether or not your marriage is about to fall apart. Read more…

Mom From "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" Loses 240 Pounds

If you’ve ever seen the film adaptation of Peter Hedges’ novel What’s Eating Gilbert Grape you’ll remember Darlene Cates. She played the matriarch of the Grape clan, Bonnie Grape, a woman who’d ballooned to more than 500 pounds and relied on her kids to take care of her. Cates, who’d never appeared in films prior to “Grape,” has a compelling back story. She was spotted by “Grape” director Lasse Halstrom after she appeared on an episode of “The Sally Jessy Raphael Show,” about people who were homebound because of their weight.

In a recent interview with The Dallas Morning News Cates revealed that after the movie, her weight continued to  be an issue. In 2011, she spent much of the year in the hospital, suffering from weight-related complications. But recently, Cates lost more than 240 pounds, and is down to 331 pounds. She’s looking forward to acting again, but refuses to take roles that lambast or ridicule overweight people. Cates still has trouble walking, but says that she no longer suffers from diabetes and has started doing physical therapy. Here’s hoping we see her on the big screen again soon. [Huffington Post]

Lady Gaga tweeted about the inspiration behind her Vogue cover. “Who else sees me channeling RuPaul on the COVER of VOGUE. If only I was as fierce as you bitch. I did try to come for you with that weave,” she said. I get it. I mean, haven’t we all had a RuPaul channeling moment? Sometimes when I’m walking down the street in high wedges, I imagine I’m Ru strutting it up on the catwalk. Of course, some genius on Tumblr made this. WERK! [WOW]

No, girl, no. Just no. “Girls” creator Lena Dunham tweeted a TwitPic of herself this week, her head wrapped in what looks like a blanket as if it as an Islamic veil, with the caption “I had a real goth/fundamentalist attitude when I woke up from my nap.”

I leave it to the goths to defend their goth-itude from her hipsterism. But that “fundamentalist” comment is just dumb — just because a woman wears a hijab, niqab or even a burqa, does not mean the woman herself is”fundamentalist.” Muslims don’t appreciate all being characterized as fundamentalist — that’s called a stereotype, Lena.

Victoria’s Secret Angel Doutzen Kroes Unretouched!

Of all the Victoria’s Secret Angels, Doutzen Kroes is the one whom I would most like to trade lives with (Doutzen, if you’re interested, call me). The Dutch model, who also has aspirations of launching a film career, is the pride and joy of her native province, one of the world’s top-earning supermodels, miraculously adored by both lingerie purveyors and the fashion set (which, you’ll note, is not the case for most), and has a stunning family that consists of unbelievably good-looking DJ Sunnery James and their son Phyllon, one of the most beautiful children I have ever seen.

So yeah, from what I can tell, Doutzen has things pretty good. There’s also the case of her insane body, which is consistently altered and airbrushed in VS publications … but now we can see for the first time how she actually appears in real life on the set of a VS shoot, thanks to these unretouched photos. You can see how muscular Doutzen is, meaning there’s a good chance she eats food and works out like a maniac. Crazy! [Yeeeah]
