I’m not sure if you all heard about it or not, but Kim Kardashian is pregnant. I’ll wait a moment for the shock to sink in.
We can now look forward to six more months of paparazzi falling all over themselves for the newest baby bump shots, interviews with Kim and Kanye’s potential nannies, photoshoots of their nurseries, and “in depth” articles that pontificate on everything from what Kris Jenner will go by (something tells me she doesn’t dig “Granny”) to whether Kanye will cut the cord, to dissecting which potential weight loss programs Kim will utilize/shill to get back into her “pre-baby bod.”
And I can tell you already, I’m over it. Keep reading »
If you believed every tabloid that announced Jennifer Aniston was pregnancy over the years, the actress would have a bigger child army than Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Click on to see what we mean…
Tori Spelling’s daughter Stella accessorized with some Magic Marker stains, while Halle Berry’s daughter Nahla toted a stuffed animal for a fab fall look. Did they match their Pull-Ups, too? Like, OMG, who do you think their stylist is?!
In Touch, you know they’re only three-year-olds, right? [SparkAMovement.Tumblr.com]
“There’s not enough space in this article. Not even enough pages in this magazine! The truth is, most celebrities are doing the same things most other people are doing every day … work, have dinner, hang out with your friends when you can, try and keep up with the crazy world we’re living in and squeeze in some zzz’s. There’s not nearly as much stealing and obsessing and middle-of-the-night secret calls to ex-boyfriends and scheming and cheating. Most of it’s just bulls**t, however entertaining.
—Jennifer Aniston‘s response to Glamour magazine asking her if there are any tabloid rumors she’d like to set straight. I’m kind of glad that, while pointing out that tabs make stories out of nothing, she does find it entertaining. I am now picturing her rummaging through Us Weekly and Life & Style cracking up at the stories she sees about herself. [Glamour] Keep reading »
After publishing every Sunday since 1843, British tabloid The News of the World—aka News of the Screws—is no more. Owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, the paper has become infamous for digging up celebrity dirt and sex scandal scoops, and publishing photos like those of Princess Diana sunbathing topless on a private beach back in the day. People have traditionally eaten the paper up—it sells a whopping 2.8 million copes a weekend. But over the past week, the paper has exploded in scandal over phone hacking. Yesterday it was announced that Sunday’s edition will be the paper’s very last.
After the jump, the who, what, when, and whys of what’s going down. Keep reading »
This week, Star magazine got its grubby little hands on Ali Fedotowsky‘s diary from high school. They apparently read the whole thing to find the most scandalous material and uncovered that, at least back in the day, she smoked pot, took ecstasy, and drank lots of alcohol. They honed in on one diary entry where Ali described an ecstasy-fueled night. “It was really fun at first,” she wrote. “I went downstairs to sleep at 4:30 and sat there until 6:30. I was completely freaking out. I really thought I was supposed to die. I really thought I would… I was so scared.”
Divulging the contents of someone’s diary is, well, the lowest of the low. Here are other stars who had their diaries made public. Keep reading »
The tabloids are chock-full of insider information procured from vague sources. And while some anonymous sources are no doubt actually friends with a star, readers are still left wondering who these tattletale BFFs are. Enter “club girls,” a small squad of statuesque young ladies who are hired by tabloids to befriend celebs while out at the hottest night spots, and then report back with any scandalous info. Yes, modern journalism has hit another low, allowing these girls to call themselves journalists when their real job description is to trick celebrities into trusting them and then sell their stories to the writers of gossip rags.

The Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka he-said-she-said battle has gone from 0 to 60 in the past 24 hours. The couple managed to grace the covers of 3 of 5 major tabloids this week. First Vienna went to Star, who supposedly paid her a whopping $90,000 for her side of the story—that their engagement was a sham, that Jake was cruel, and that he wouldn’t have sex with her—as she was packing her bags to leave him. In retaliation, Jake spoke to People, refuting her claims and saying that the real reason for the breakup was A) her hookup with Gregory Michael of “Greek” and B) her talking to Star behind his back. But what has me the most interested here is that $90K price tag. Is it ethical for tabloids to pay people of note for their breakup stories, especially before the breakup has even happened? This seems to add a whole new dimension to already tenuous Hollywood relationships—that your significant other could be broke and decide to dump you for a big pay day. Keep reading »
