This week, “The Oprah Show” featured Pat Benatar and Avril Lavigne doing a duet of “Love Is A Battlefield,” a song that remains relevant after all these years. Pat seems to be winning the “war” seeing as she’s still with her husband of 30 years. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same about Avril. [Oprah] Keep reading »
Drew Barrymore is gearing up to direct her second flick, and instead of delving into the wild world of roller derby, this time around Drew will be covering more familiar territory—the state of the single person. The movie, “How To Be Single,” is based on a novel by Luz Tucillo and will be adapted by Marc Silverstein and Abby Kohn, the scribes behind the Drew-produced “He’s Just Not That Into You.” The movie will tell the story of a group of single New Yorkers and will follow them over the course of 10 years. “Love is never gonna be a tired subject,” Drew says. “Being single, this one definitely speaks to me and I’ve explored it a lot in the last year and a half. I’m at that age where I’m sort of straddling a great line right now and I can see both sides very well… It’s hopefully, in a lot of ways, not a romantic comedy. People have this weird stigma [with] that word — it’s a turnoff to guys or whatever. But I think we’ve honed in on a style that will be more universal, a little bit ageless and not gender specific.” And with that, she has piqued my interest. [EW] Keep reading »
If you lived anywhere near my apartment building, you would have heard a dramatic scream of “Noooooooo!” circa 9 a.m. this morning. Why? Because I read that Leah Messer and Corey Simms of “Teen Mom 2“—aka the couple I dubbed the most inspiring on television—have split after just six months of marriage. Apparently, it was Leah who did the leaving, moving out of their family home after a series of fights over money. Yesterday, she was spotted at her local courthouse and a clerk confirmed that, while she hadn’t filed anything, she had picked up divorce or custody papers.
This news makes me very, very sad. Keep reading »
Mark your calendars for May 16, folks. That’s when “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” returns. Well, at least a few of them anyway—Dina Manzo called it quits midway through last season and our favorite skin suit wearer, Danielle Staub, was ousted after last season, too. But there are some new ladies filling in their slots. First there’s Melissa Gorga, who just happens to be Teresa Giudice‘s sister-in-law. Melissa is a mother of three who wants to be a pop star and has been recording tracks with producer Keith Boles. “It’s feel good music,” he explains. The second new housewife is Kathy Wakile, who happens to be Teresa’s cousin. Kathy is a mom of two and is super into throwing parties. Apparently, we have her daughter’s belly dancing themed Sweet 16 to look forward to.
But just because these new housewives are family doesn’t mean things are going to be all lovey dovey. Keep reading »
Talk about being an older mom. Zsa Zsa Gabor may just become one at the ripe age of … 94. Zsa Zsa has had a ton of health problems this year—from a hip replacement to an amputated leg—and now her husband (amazingly, her ninth), Prince Frederic von Anhalt, has hatched a plan for another medical procedure. Using an egg donor, artificial insemination and a surrogate, he wants to father Zsa Zsa’s baby. “I’ve gone through the initial steps of donor matching and blood work and next week the donation process will begin,” he said. “I’m a retired guy. I can take care of it.” Keep reading »
Lady Gaga sure knows how to grab our attention, doesn’t she? The pop star dons her now signature horns on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, but it’s this truly titillating look inside the magazine that caught our eye. But the real reason to pick up this issue — or keep reading this post if you don’t want to spend the $3.99 — is the interview. The woman has no interest in canned answers — her responses to some of the questions, on everything from plastic surgery to living in LA, are seriously, well, nutty. Read on for a few of our favorite bits… Keep reading »
