“I feel like ‘embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out. He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying. I’m fighting to get my name back.”

Paula Deen fights to get her name back in this week’s People and loses the battle. Miserably. I wonder if Paula could have chosen another comparison, any other comparison that didn’t include the words “disgraced,” “black” and “gay” in the same breath? At the very least couldn’t she have humanized Michael Sam by using his name? Instead, she only succeeded in further proving her ignorance. Despite her embattled, disgraced existence since her N-word scandal, she still has plenty of bacon in the bank ($75 million form a private investment firm to be exact) and a new restaurant opening near Tennessee’s Dollywood theme park.

Daryl Hannah Comes Out As Autistic

“I’ve never been comfortable being the center of attention It’s always freaked me out … I’m a grown up now. I’ve learned a couple of things that really would’ve made my life easier if I’d known them 20 years ago … I wasted so much time scared, self-conscious and insecure. Life is too short to stress the small things anymore.”

Daryl Hannah reveals that she was diagnosed with autism as a child in this week’s issue of People. In the interview, Hannah also talks about how initially, doctors wanted to institutionalize her and she took up acting as a means of  escape from the real world. But once she became successful, fear of fame debilitated her. She admits to skipping her own movie premieres and press appearances because she was “terrified.” I think it’s very brave of her to go public with her struggles.

According to The New York Post, the only thing Jennifer Lopez regrets is this People cover. Word is, she thinks the picture makes her look “old and haggard” like Betsey Johnson. What? Betsey Johnson? What? I wouldn’t go that far, but it’s certainly bizarre. The hair really isn’t working and why is she crouching in spread eagle? Despite the rumors that Lopez complained to People about her photograph, her manager insists that she was “very pleased with the cover photo.” Nope. Not buying it. [WOW]

Kate Gosselin In A Bikini On The Cover Of People

Behold, this week’s People magazine. On the cover, Kate Gosselin pulls a Kim Kardashian and dons nothing but a white bikini. After getting a tummy tuck, going on “Dancing with the Stars,” and getting into running, she says that, at 35, “this is the most fit I’ve ever been. I’ve worked really hard! Haven’t I earned the right, at this point, to look good?” What do you guys think—nice cover, or will her eight kids hate her for this when they get a little older? Keep reading »

Quotable: Elin Nordegren Finally Speaks

“I have been through the stages of disbelief and shock, to anger and ultimately grief over the loss of the family I so badly wanted for my children … I also feel stronger than I ever have. I have confidence in my beliefs, my decisions and myself.”

Elin Nordgren on the end of the her marriage to Tiger Woods, after his repeated infidelities came to light, to People. Nordegren also said that she’s “been through hell,” experienced hair loss and insomnia as a result of all of the scrutiny, and insisted that there was never any violence in her relationship with Woods. Rumors that she went after him with a golf club the night he crashed his SUV into a tree are “truly ridiculous.” She also told the magazine that she and Woods “tried for months” to reconcile and repair their marriage, but that an absence of “trust and love … was good for no one.” Nordegren says that her interview with People will be her first and last on the subject of her marriage and divorce.

Why is Julia Roberts The Most Beautiful Person In The World, AGAIN?

Picking the men and women for People‘s annual “Most Beautiful Issue” has to be a fun a job—I wonder what exactly constitutes research? But I’ve always wondered how they choose the MOST, MOST beautiful person out of all of the residents of Beautiful-land. My personal theory is that they pick whoever is willing to give them the longest interview and if that is true, Julia Roberts must sure like to blab. Today, the annual issue was released, and she has been chosen the beautifulest for the fourth time. (I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that the photo above was probably envisioned as the full cover, but was bumped to a small size because of Sandra Bullock’s bombshell adoption news.) Julia graced the cover as the most beautiful back in 1991, 2000 and 2005 and she’s also made the list a whopping 12 times. Obviously, Julia is gorgeous and I do think it’s cool that the magazine broke its 20-something woman or 40-something guy rut by choosing a 42-year old lady for top honors. But still, it shows a serious lack of creativity.

Personally, I think they should have run with Sandra Bullock and killed two birds with one stone—they could’ve easily added her to the Most Beautiful People spread, and also gotten the extra mileage of dynamite news story and that adorable baby photo. Who would you have cast to open the “Beautiful People” package? Keep reading »
