“We were on our way to Thailand to see my parents, flying commercial first-class. We were under a blanket. We weren’t even in one of those pod things. I feel like we should get a trophy for that.”
Chrissy Teigen, don’t get greedy! Your trophy for joining the mile-high club with John Legend is GETTING TO JOIN THE MILE-HIGH CLUB WITH JOHN LEGEND. [Cosmo]
What’s more cynical than suggesting George Clooney got engaged to Amal Alamuddin because he either knocked her up or is trying to do preemptive damage control on an incoming gay scandal? My new theory that Clooney is giving up his dedication to the bachelor life to marry the accomplished lawyer — someone “on his level,” finally! — because he’s going to announce a run for political office. HEAR ME OUT.
Rumors that Clooney has his eye on Washington have swirled for awhile now and the actor is certainly one of the more politically vocal celebs in Hollywood. His views on social and economic issues aren’t particularly radical or outside the status quo and he’s been rewarded with a certain level of insider status, serving as one of the United Nations Messengers of Peace since 2008. As an Oscar-winning actor and accomplished director, he’s pretty much peaked in his chosen career. Perhaps it’s time for a second? Keep reading »
Paul Simon and his wife Edie Brickell were both arrested and charged with disorderly conduct on Saturday at their New Canaan, Connecticut, home. Police responded to a call regarding their home at 8 p.m and reportedly found cause to arrest them both. The New Canaan Advertiser called the incident an “apparent domestic dispute” and both the Advertiser and TMZ called the incident “domestic violence.” The New Canaan police told Patch the incident was a “family dispute.” Police have not released further details about the arrests or the street name or address of the couple. Simon and Brickell have been married for 20 years and have three children together.
Hell hath frozen over. George Clooney, who has said over and over again that he likes being a bachelor, is allegedly engaged to Amal Alamuddin, the British attorney he’s been dating since October 2013. I say “allegedly” because George himself has yet to confirm the news, but People magazine is reporting it via “a source with knowledge of the situation” which basically means someone on George’s team who wants to make it seem like this news is accidentally leaking. (Seriously, a lot of the time magazine “sources” are actually just PR people wanting to remain anonymous for, duh, PR purposes. Anyhoo.) Also, Alamuddin was spotted wearing a fat ring on her engagement finger. Keep reading »
Good news, sort of: figure skater Johnny Weir and his estranged hubby, Victor Voronov, have changed their minds about getting a divorce — but not without signing a bizarre post-nup. When the pair decided to get back together this weekend, Voronov asked that Weir sign a document that apologized for bad-mouthing Voronov to the press and promised to keep Weir’s mom outta their marriage. (Good luck with the mother-in-law problem, hon.)
In response, Weir wrote up a five-page document that includes the types of behavior that he considers cheating, like sex outside the marriage, kissing others, sexting, Grindr and — wait for it — mutual masturbation. Keep reading »
