I can think of few things more awkward than showing up for work and finding out that my new colleague is someone I used to date. Is there a special HR procedure for dealing with that kind of cringeworthy situation? I don’t think so. But such is the case on the new CW show, “Emily Owens M.D.” (which begins Tuesday, October 16 at 9/8C). Mamie Gummer (that’s Meryl Streep’s daughter!) plays Emily, a first-year intern at a hospital in Denver, who shows up at work to discover that the guy she was in love with in med school is her new coworker. (Extra, extra awkward: so is her high school nemesis. Small world!) Alas, depending on where you live and what field you work in, this might not be all that much of a coincidence, as it’s pretty common to end up dating someone you met through work. I mean, this kind of awkwardness happens all the time in Hollywood. Just look at the 10 former celeb couples who had to deal with costarring alongside their ex after their relationship was over — many of them even had to fake being in love on screen. I would pity them if they weren’t getting paid so much. Keep reading »
Just when you thought Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy were going to skip off into the sunset together come not one but two rumors that Swift has been stepping out on her young man. Star magazine reports that Swift had the nerve to cheat on Kennedy with his cousin, Patrick Schwarzenegger, according to Radar. (Avid Swift-watchers will recall that Patrick was her first rumored love, before reports switched to Conor.) Sources say Taylor and Patrick were making out at a Kennedy family event, and that the family now considers her a “hanger-on” and “despises” her. Read more…
After seeing Jay-Z perform with wife Beyonce this weekend, I had two thoughts: 1) They can never break up, and 2) If the music industry has Jay and Beyonce as their modern power couple, who does Young Hollywood have? Who is the 2012 version of Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart? I mean, Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, not to mention Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, have split — which famous pair is poised to take the super couple reigns and hold on for dear life? The obvious choice would be Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, but I think we can all agree they are swimming in rough waters right now and can’t really be expected to do the job.
With that in mind, I decided to anoint the new guard of up-and-coming Hollywood super couples, celebs who are great alone but even stronger together. Keep reading »
Oh, excuse us for interrupting your private moment, Kim and Kanye. Wait, never mind, you’re out in public playing grab ass, why are we apologizing? Kim is the one who’s known for her famous fanny, but it seems she has a fondness of her own for the junk in Kanye’s trunk. She’s really up there, isn’t she? Is she holding on that tight because she’s afraid of falling in the rain? Careful, girl.
We’ve noticed quite a few famous folks who can’t help showing their feelings for the fanny by giving their partner a little love tap or a big squeeze. Maybe they’re just double checking that their babe’s butt is still there? Click on for photos of celebs latching on to a badonkadonk. Brace yourself—this slideshow is full of dangerous curves.
Every once in a blue moon a Hollywood couple confirms a split and it’s absolutely baffling. This morning a rep for Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman confirmed that the couple has already separated and is living very single lives. I think they are one of the few couples in the business that you actually kind of forgot about because you never heard a rumble of any trouble! Plus, they raised three kids in Tinseltown where most relationships, not even marriages make it under the standard two years! That alone earns them a spot in Hollywood private life history.
This split is just bizarre because Danny and Rhea have been together forever or at least for 40 years! They met in 1970 when Rhea went to see an off-Broadway play that Danny was starring in and that was it, the two then lived together for eleven years before finally tying the knot in 1982. Read more…
I’m a lucky girl. Over the last, oh, 10 days, I think I’ve said, “This is the best day of my life!” at least a handful of times. First, when Wil Wheaton posted a link to my essay on writing “Star Trek” fanfic on his blog and said it was “fantastic.” Then again, when I went to an event featuring Cheryl Strayed, author of Tiny Beautiful Things and Wild. And again, when I went to hear Zadie Smith read from her new book, NW. Friday was another best day ever, as I had two psychic readings, both of which promised similar blessings ahead.
Saturday was the latest in this string of awesomely memorable days, because I went to see Jay-Z perform at Barclays Center (where his Brooklyn Nets will be playing). I’m already a longtime Jay-Z fan, but I was especially psyched because I had a gut feeling that if there was going to be a night when wife Beyonce would get up on stage with him, it would be this one, because A) it was the final night and B) the show was streaming live online. Turns out, my gut was right. Keep reading »
