Chaz Bono Had To Relearn How To Be In A Relationship After He Transitioned

“We had to really almost re-learn how to communicate and how to be around each other. Suddenly [things I used to say] didn’t mean the same thing to her. And so we really had to, you know, adjust our — how we did things and relearn how to be together.”

Chaz Bono on his relationship with his partner, Jennifer Elia, post-transition. This is so fascinating to me. I really admire couples who manage to stay together through such intense life experiences. I’m really excited to see the documentary, “Becoming Chaz,” which aired earlier this week on OWN. Check out the trailer here. [iVillage] Keep reading »

Jillian Michaels Adopting From The Congo, Keeping Her Hard Body

“My dossier, which is your paperwork portfolio, is in to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Now it’s just a waiting game. It could be six months, twelve months; it could be two years. Or, it could be tomorrow! They call you and they say, ‘Oh, we have your referral,’ which is essentially the child they match you up with, and you go overseas and you get him or her.”

Jillian Michaels confirms that, now that her contract with “The Biggest Loser” is over, she is in the process of adopting a baby from the Congo. Last year, she let us in on her reasons for wanting to adopt rather than having one herself. “I can’t handle doing that to my body,” she said. How noble? This way, she helps a child in need … and doesn’t damage her six pack. [Showbiz Spy] Keep reading »

Chelsea Handler Finally Admits She And 50 Cent Were Dating

“We dated, very casually. He’s a very sweet, nice guy … the complete antithesis of what you’d imagine. I was sampling, kind of, the atmosphere, seeing what was out there, and I was satiated… I don’t really like when men buy me ridiculous gifts, especially when I don’t know them well. I can buy my own gifts. I really don’t like gifts from rappers in general, since I’m not a hooker.”

Chelsea Handler finally comes clean to Piers Morgan that she and 50 Cent did date for a little while. Apparently, Fiddy showered her in expensive gifts and she wasn’t so into that. So she called things off. [People]

Chelsea is now dating hotelier Andre Balazs. See what she has to say about him after the jump. Keep reading »

John Waters On “Glee,” Gay Marriage And The “Ghetto”

“The coming out story is sort of corny to me. Now there’s all these rules like you can’t have gay villains in movies. I’m against all that. I’m for the rights of lesbians to be bad parents. I’m for not lowering any kind of standards because we’re gay. The gay Olympics is offensive to me. What are we, handicapped? I believe gay doesn’t make you better or worse. I know some gay a**holes and some of the smartest and nicest people I know are gay. … ["Glee" helped in that] people are certainly more used to it. It’s okay to be gay if you’re rich and in an upper class school. If you’re in the ghetto and gay it’s worse than it ever was. The main people who are fighting gay marriage are Hispanic and black churches, so if you really want to have a gay march go picket black churches. Now that’s a photo op from hell.”

—Geez, tell us what you really think, John Waters! I may not agree with all of John Waters’ opinions — blaming Hispanics and blacks for opposing same sex marriage is totally unfair. I know plenty of bigoted white people, too, John! But I also feel like when you’re a gay icon who made the most famous dog poop-eating cult film in history (“Pink Flamingoes,” rent it), it’s expected that you’ll be a little loopy. Such as, uh, being friends with a Manson girl. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Sarah Ferguson Hurt By Royal Wedding Snub

“I was not invited. I went through the phase of feeling so totally worthless. I wanted to be there with my girls, to be getting them dressed and to go as a family. Also, it was so hard, because the last bride up that aisle was me.”

Sarah Ferguson talks to Oprah about being left off the guest list for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, while her daughters Beatrice and Eugenie attended and fascinated us with their fascinators. Instead Fergie, who married Prince Andrew in 1986, watched on a TV set from the resort where she was staying in Camelia. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Rachel McAdams’ Parents Spoiled Her Love Life

“[My parents are] still together and still in love. I’m very blessed that way. I had a great example of love in front of me, and that’s probably what makes me such a romantic, because I’ve seen it firsthand … You grow up and you assume that everyone is like that, and you quickly realize that they’re not, and then you have those days when you wonder if you’re going to find it for yourself. It’s such a hard thing to find. I think it was more that realization that rocked me.”

Rachel McAdams talks love and marriage in the latest issue of Elle. I can relate to Rachel’s sentiment. My parents and grandparents are all still married and in love. It seems like no one does that anymore or even believes in it. I know I am doubtful at times and that makes me sad. But what is even sadder is the realization that not many other people are even striving for that. I often feel like I have to lower my expectations just to give love a shot. Damn you, happily married parents! [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
