Miley Cyrus is certainly no stranger to rumors. But this one is definitely out there. Right after Miley Cyrus’ house was burglarized on Friday, a large teepee was put up her backyard, leading to reports that she was now sleeping in it. That’s the safe place to go after a robbery. So sure enough, Miley Cyrus' rep had to come out and let everyone know that the rumor wasn’t true, adding that it was merely a birthday gift from her family. They have a similar one on their farm in Nashville. Miley Cyrus' teepee, was even created by Normadics Tipi Makers, the largest and oldest teepee makers in the U.S. since 1970. It’s a 22-foot teepee, cost about $2,200 and was decorated per her mother's specifications. It even has all customized artwork. So I guess if Miley Cyrus ever actually does decide to sleep in it, I wouldn't blame her. It sounds nice!
Alec Baldwin has been fired by MSNBC! My sources are telling me that his weekly show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” has been canceled because of his foul-mouthed rant at a photographer he called a nasty name. The Comcast guys have decided and word is spreading through the building. Alec Baldwin’s dismissal was decided on partly because of his diva-like behavior toward co-workers. For example, besides demanding a humidifier because he claimed the air at 30 Rock was too dry, Alec Baldwin alienated staffers when he demanded a separate makeup room being used by a woman with cancer who is sensitive to hairspray. When Alec Baldwin was told he couldn’t have his way, he apparently screamed at the top of his lungs, saying he didn’t care if the woman had cancer! Even his show’s ratings were weak. His last show pulled in just 395,000 total viewers. A spokesman for Alec Baldwin didn’t say whether or not he was fired but did indeed say, “The show is not coming back. He had questions on whether he wanted to continue.” Alec Baldwin was difficult to reach considering he’s in Hawaii filming a movie.
Yesterday there were reports that Angela Jolie bought Brad Pitt a 20 million dollar island in the shape of his heart for his 50th birthday. Well, looks like it was nothing but a rumor! According to the New York Post, Petra Island has yet to be purchased. Owners of the retreat apparently listed the huge piece of land four months ago, but no one has made an offer. Donna Massaro, the daughter of the owners said, "I don't have any idea where that [report about Jolie] came from. The family threw it out there to see if anyone was interested, and so far no [potential buyers] have [come forward]." I’m sure Angelina Jolie still got something phenomenal for her hubby!
How scary! Frankie Muniz just had a frightening sense of deja vu because the 27-year old actor says he just suffered his 2nd mini-stroke in a year! Frankie Muniz posted the health scare on his Twitter account, saying, "Almost a year to the day, I experienced another mini stroke. Hopefully that will be the last. Miserable." Frankie Muniz didn't say whether he needed any medical treatment. Last year at this time, on November 30th to be exact, Frankie Muniz experienced blurred vision and had trouble speaking. Doctors diagnosed the episode as a mini-stroke, but said they didn't know what caused it. Hopefully this will be the last time this happens to him!
Kelly Clarkson is loving her pregnancy, no matter what her bad experiences might be so far! Kelly Clarkson may be suffering from morning sickness, but she's trying to enjoy every minute. After announcing last week that she is expecting her first child with her husband, Kelly Clarkson opened up about her pregnancy. When she was asked if she was feeling good, Kelly Clarkson said, "Nope. I don't know why they call it morning sickness. That's my big joke right now because it's all day and all night. I am super-excited about being pregnant, though. I'm just looking forward to the second trimester . . . they say it's better." How cute is that! Kelly Clarkson’s gut is telling her that she’s having a girl. Regardless, she and her husband already have a name picked out for a girl or boy… and no, they wont tell us what they are!
What we feared may just be the truth! Zac Efron said he broke his jaw after slipping in a puddle, but my sources are telling me that the injury is a result of partying. Zac Efron was apparently alone at home, and he leaned forward and fell into his coffee table. He broke his jaw on the table and was afraid to call an ambulance, so his friend took him to the ER. He was just so drunk and out of control. Despite this setback though, my sources are telling me that Zac Efron is continuing to move in the right direction. He’s hired a sober coach to help him stay clean and keep his painkiller intake under control. Zac Efron is tired of his addiction hindering his career, especially now being tied to two rehab stints!
Kanye West just can’t seem to learn his lesson! In his latest rant, Kanye West insisted that he’s the next Walt Disney, saying, “I’m just a creative,. I’m more like a Walt Disney or something. Like, rap is just a chamber of my thoughts.“It’s something that I really wanted to express as a modern-day poet, because you know, if I had lived in a past lifetime, maybe I would have been a playwright or something. But in this lifetime, to be the most heard and the most relevant, the most relevant is to be a rap rock star. You can express at the highest level there.” And are you ready for this? His fiancé Kim Kardashian is also the new version of an old world icon, Marilyn Monroe. Kanye West has been making such over-the-top pronouncements for months. He’s also compared himself to God, Jesus, PabloPicasso, Michael Jordan, Willy Wonka and Michael Jackson, just to name a few.
Honestly if this is true I’m going to be really excited for them! Ashton Kutcher got aggressive with the paparazzi outside a restaurant last night, but I’m being told that the whole tough guy act may have just been a cover to keep his allegedly pregnant girlfriend away from cameras. That’s right, there’s rumors going around that Mila Kunis has a baby on board! The restaurant that the couple was eating at is right in the middle of a heavily-trafficked celebrity sighting area. So, the paparazzi were surprised when Ashton Kutcher emerged from the restaurant and tried to strong-arm the photogs into leaving! During the confrontation, one of Ashton Kutcher's associates can be seen in the background quickly escorting Mila Kunis into Ashton Kutcher's car as if they're trying to slip past the cameras. With the rumor going around that Mila Kunis is pregnant, photos of her could pull in a LOT of cash for the person who gets it! And yes, Mila Kunis was wearing a baggy shirt and baggy jeans. So, the mystery remains. If Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis had a baby, can you imagine just how gorgeous that baby would be?!
What do Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence and Miley Cyrus have in common? Not a whole lot, but now they have all been named the Entertainers of the Year by Entertainment Weekly! They are joined by Tom Hanks, the creators of Breaking Bad, Matthew McConaughey, the cast of Scandal, Grumpy Cat and many more! Sandra Bullock is on the cover of the magazine as she earned the top spot on their list of the most exciting performers in 2013. Sandra Bullock even opened up about her love life and shared that she's not quite ready to dip her toe in the dating pool, saying, "If it should come along, great. But I feel like I'm not missing anything yet. Maybe one day I will. But my son is three years old, which is an amazing age. Four is an even better age. So if something happens, great, but if not, I've got plenty to do." How cool would it be to give him a daddy!
It must be hard looking in One Direction… Well, especially for Taylor Swift. That’s because she kept her eyes fixed on every spot during the American Music Awards on Sunday that was pointedly away from her ex Harry Styles and his One Direction bandmates! Even though Taylor Swift went to the podium four times for her awards and was partying away in her seat, on-goers couldn’t help but notice that she went out of her way to ignore Harry Styles and his band. At one point during a commercial break, she walked right in front of them as she made her way to go backstage, staring straight ahead as she quickly made her way past them. But the One Direction guys did join the crowd in giving Taylor Swift a standing ovation for her Best Female Country artist award. Looks like someone is the better sport!
News is just now getting out that Tori Spelling was hospitalized last month in the middle of her tour to promote her tell-all book Spelling It Like It Is. She was treated briefly and released, but legs of her promotional tour had to be cancelled after she missed a scheduled flight. People are saying that Tori Spelling just wasn’t feeling well and went to the hospital, but everything was fine. By my sources are telling me that Tori Spelling was hospitalized for stress and anxiety for a few days because she was receiving a lot of negative feedback about revelations she made in the book and she had no idea that it was going to hit a nerve… like making comments about a run in with Katie Holmes. Tori Spelling became very anxious about having to defend her actions in the book in media interviews and decided that she needed to go to the hospital. This is not the first time that Tori Spelling has had a hospital ordeal.
The suspicious circumstances surrounding Brittany Murphy’s tragic death have been dragged into the spotlight again by her father’s claims that a lab report shows that his daughter was murdered. BUT her mother has broken her silence to set the record straight, saying that her daughter was not murdered and that her father is pulling a “stunt” for “publicity.” Sharon Murphy, who lived with Brittany Murphy and her husband, opened up about the claims that she says are false and for publicity, saying, “I have chosen to stay out of the limelight since the tragic and sudden death of my wonderful, talented, loving daughter four years ago this Dec. 20th. I have no choice now but to come forward in the face of inexcusable efforts to smear my daughter’s memory by a man who may be her biological father, but was never a real father to her in her lifetime... He has made outrageous statements over the past few years, culminating in this latest madness: that my darling daughter was murdered… The lab Angelo used, if you can call it that, is an Internet site that farmed out the actual testing, and then wrote horribly untrue things… Like everything else Angelo and his collaborator Julia Davis have done, this is calculated to make them money and bring them the fame they desperately crave.” WOW!
Miranda Lambert has a message for people who think she took the easy way out to lose weight. She posted a letter to her fans blasting reports that she had surgery to help lose weight, saying, "Though I NEVER care what the tabloids have to say about me … I wanted to address this certain story they are running this week and set the record straight. I DID NOT have surgery to lose weight. That is ridiculous. I lost my weight the healthy and good old fashioned way. Watching what I eat and working out with my trainer Bill Crutchfield."
Miranda Lambert, who dropped a dress size, also admits in the letter that she doesn't know how many pounds she's lost, saying, "It's not about a scale. It's about how you feel and how your jeans fit. And on November 10th when I turned 30, my skinny jeans were finally baggy! Mission accomplished! So for anyone who is tempted to read the "Trash Talk" please don't. I am proud to be a normal size girl and I want to encourage everyone to be confident at any size." YOU GO GIRL!
A photog has filed a lawsuit against P!nk and her husband Carey Hart after a fight that happened back in June. He’s claiming that he was physically beaten and humiliated during the fight... and even called a "pedophile." The photog claims that he was trying to take a picture of P!nk while she was changing her daughter's diaper in a playground, and P!nk's husband Carey Hart snapped, saying some HORRIBLE things, to which P!nk allegedly added, "You're photographing my baby naked." Then Carey Hart's friend went on the attack, kicking the photog in the shin, stomping on his feet, and kneeing him in the groin. He claims his camera equipment was damaged during the melee. The photog is suing for assault and battery, and destruction of his camera equipment. On the day of the fight, cops were called to the scene, but no arrests were made. What do you think? Right or wrong?
Miley Cyrus NEEDED some birthday presents over the weekend for her 21st birthday, because she's lost a bunch of expensive stuff when she was burglarized on Friday. It looks like $100,000 worth of items were stolen, including a bunch of jewelry and several high-end purses. Even though there were no signs of forced entry, there were numerous surveillance cameras so cops may have a hot lead. Maybe her birthday gift from her father, Billy Ray Cyrus can start her back up again. Miley Cyrus’ dad went all out on her gift, buying Miley Cyrus a $24,000 customized Cam-Am Spyder ATV, complete with her initials plastered all over it. Billy Ray Cyrus loved the gift he got for her so much that even HE was seen taking the gift for a spin around the neighborhood with younger daughter Noah on the back! Good thing Miley Cyrus likes to share!
What do you get for the man who has everything, including Angelina Jolie? Well, if you ARE Angelina Jolie, you don't have to think too hard, especially when you have all that money! $20 million dollars to be exact. Angelina Jolie reportedly bought Brad Pitt the world's largest Valentine for his upcoming 50th birthday - an island in the shape of a heart! The island Petra is about 50 miles off the coast of New York City and comes complete with a sprawling estate. The house is perfect for romantic getaways or as a family retreat. That's some birthday gift!
You can’t do anything if it’s live tv! Giada De Laurentiis had a bad moment Saturday during the Food Network’s annual Thanksgiving Live special. Appearing along with Alton Brown, Bobby Flay and Ina Gartne, Giada De Laurentiis badly cut her finger when her knife slipped while she was slicing a turkey roll she’d just made. To the people that watched it, she went pale and got very quiet putting pressure on it and whispering that it was bad. Giada De Laurentiis looked like she was about to faint. The show broke for commercial and when it returned, it was announced that Giada De Laurentiis had left the set to get medical attention. She came back about 15 minutes later with her finger bandaged. The on-set medic had gotten it to stop bleeding. Thank goodness it wasn’t TOO serious!
Poor Kelly Osbourne. She hasn’t had the best of luck when it’s come to health this year. The 29-year-old sprained her ankle in February and also suffered a seizure in March. Now, Kelly Osbourne has been ordered by a doctor to rest her voice for 14 days. Kelly Osbourne posted about her situation on Instagram, writing, “According to my DR I have pre-vocal nodes and am on vocal rest for the next 2 weeks! That’s worse than prison for me!” Kelly Osbourne also shared a close-up snapshot featuring the insides of her throat. It read, "#warning this is disgusting!” Oh and it was! She posted another status about an hour later, writing, "In bed watching #Jawbreaker." Rough life! Get well soon Kelly Osbourne!
Talk about a bad birthday weekend! Miley Cyrus’ birthday weekend did not get off to a good start. Her house was burglarized on Friday, the day before she turned 21! LAPD confirms that a victim, whom of course they couldn’t say was Miley Cyrus, discovered that property was missing from her home. There were no signs of forced entry. The investigation is still going on. Miley Cyrus was busy getting ready for the American Music Awards and spent her actual bday rehearsing for the annual awards show. With that kind of schedule, it’s hard to avoid a break-in!
How sad! Dr. Conrad Murray says he and Michael Jackson were so close, that he went above and beyond for home. So above and beyond, that he would physically help Michael Jackson go to the bathroom. In a strange interview, Dr. Conrad Murray even went so far as to share that Michael Jackson wore dark trousers all the time because he was so ill that sometimes he’d have accidents! Dr. Conrad Murray even said that he thinks Michael Jackson killed himself, stating that when he walked out of Michael Jackson's bedroom the day he died, "I believe he woke up, got hold of his own stash of Propofol and injected himself. He did it too quickly and went into cardiac arrest." Dr. Conrad Murray even said that Michael Jackson’s three kids have 3 different fathers, and Michael isn't one of them. The oddest comment of them all... Dr. Conrad Murray suggests that Michael Jackson predicted he would die on Dr. Conrad Murray's watch. Is he helping or hurting his case?
Is Katie Couric ready to move on from ABC? It sure seems that way. Katie Couric locked in a deal with the network three years ago for her daytime talk show, Katie, and a role at ABC News. But she has already signed a new deal with Yahoo! No details have been released just yet on what she’ll be doing with the company, but my sources are telling me that it will be announced as early as today! As for her syndicated show, it's not a definite just yet that it’s over. The network declined to comment on the Yahoo rumors.
It’s not common to hear Lady Gaga talk about her boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, so when she does we want to know details! Well, that’s exactly what we got when Lady Gaga spoke to Ellen DeGeneres about their relationship. Lady Gaga revealed when she first realized that her former music video costar could become something more. She said, "We were in the middle of this scene and I remember that he kissed me and it wasn't scripted for him to kiss me. I was sort of like was um, you know, was that real or was that fake? He didn't really say anything and that was fine by me and we kept filming." She also admitted that her boyfriend is a "weirdo" just like her saying "He is extremely strange, actually, and we complement each other's weirdness. That's actually one of the first things he ever said to me. It's a Dr. Seuss quote, that you find in someone else a 'compatible weirdness.' And it was one of the first things he said to me." Looks like there’s a cover for every pot. So glad she’s in love! Looks like Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson has no problem having a good time off the set! He hosted Saturday Night Live over the weekend and opened the show with a Hunger Games-themed sketch. In it, the cast picked tributes to fight to the death. New Weekend Update anchor, Cecily Strong, dressed as Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen and Bobby Moynihan played her challenger. Kate McKinnon played a hysterical Hunger Games superfan who dressed as Elizabeth Banks’ Effie Trinket! Josh Hutcherson clearly enjoyed the skit and even poked fun at his own character, Peeta Mellark, who is often criticized for being the series' damsel in distress, saying, "You guys probably most know me from the Hunger Games. I play Peeta, the brave young hero who immediately gets hurt and has to be carried around for the rest of the movie.” Josh Hutcherson has plenty to celebrate. Catching Fires officially hit theaters Friday, raking in $135 million total in both domestic and worldwide sales from its opening day. The sequel is predicted to have one of the biggest November openings ever!
This still isn’t good, but at least it’s SOMEWHAT better. A video was released on Friday that showed Lamar Odom rapping with his friend about cheating on Khloe Kardashian. If you watch the video, clearly he isn’t sober in it and it looks like Lamar Odom is high on drugs. Well, Lamar Odom has come out and explained that in the clip, he was only very, VERY drunk, but NOT high! He even specifically said that crack and coke were not being used by him at the time. Regardless, this video along with other instances of him bar-hopping is not looking good for Lamar Odom’s sobriety case. Poor Khloe Kardashian!
Your Big American Music Awards Winners Are....
Favorite Male Artist, Pop/Rock Bruno Mars Robin Thicke WINNER: Justin Timberlake
Cue the complaining! Chris Brown is complaining to friends that he should be allowed to take medical marijuana for his anger management issues because it’s legal in California. Chris Brown was ordered to spend three months in rehab after throwing a rock through his mother’s car window. He doesn’t want to continue to use anti-depressant drugs which have been prescribed to him. They make Chris Brown feel very numb and make everything around him seem fuzzy. Chris Brown also suffers from ADD and had been depressed in recent weeks. He is really trying to move forward from the incident with Rihanna, but feels it’s just going to haunt him for the rest of his life. Chris Brown believes that if he was allowed to take the marijuana things would dramatically improve in his life.
Hugh Jackman posted a picture of himself wearing a bandage on his face. Why? He explained to fans that he recently had skin cancer removed from his nose. Hugh Jackman revealed that it was his wife Deborra-Lee Furness who encouraged him to get the "mark" checked… And Hugh Jackman said, "Boy, was she right! I had [basal] cell carcinoma. Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!" According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, an estimated 2.8 million cases of basal cell carcinoma are diagnosed in the United States each year, and it is the most frequently occurring form of all cancers. For treatment options, you can remove the tumor, radiation and topical medicine. Lesson learned, when it doubt, always get it checked out!
Jennifer Lawrence continues to make headlines. But, does she actually read them? The answer is a big fat NO! Jennifer Lawrence said, ”I would never do something like that.” Jennifer Lawrence admits that it can be tough to steer clear of the tabloids, but it's necessary in order to maintain her sanity. Jennifer Lawrence has slipped up and Googled herself in the past, a mistake she never intends to make again. She said, "I stopped doing it when one of my friends was upset about pictures that came up.” Something tells me that she never has to worry about what people say about her!
NBC is giving us the best holiday gift ever! There has been hilarious Saturday Night Live hosts so far, and now fans can get excited for three more sensational celebrities who will be hosting and/or performing during SNL's December shows. Kicking it off on Dec. 7th, SNL will welcome back actor Paul Rudd for his third hosting stint. He will be joined by One Direction. Then on December 14th, comedy legend John Goodman will make his 13th hosting appearance. He’ll be joined by the Grammy Award-winning musical guest Kings Of Leon. Lastly, SNL alum and former Weekend Update host Jimmy Fallon will return on December 21st for his second time hosting since leaving the series in 2004. He’ll be joined by his best friend and fan-favorite host Justin Timberlake! He’s scheduled to be the night's musical act, but I bet that Justin Timberlake is going to make it into a lot of the skits! How excited are you for THAT lineup?
The more I hear about this case, the more sad and complicated it seems to get. Brittany Murphy tragically passed away in 2009, and even though it was ruled to have been caused by anemia and pneumonia, her father, Angelo Bertolotti, recently opened up about the possible REAL reason she and her husband, Simon Monjack, died. Her father is now claiming that they were poisoned and murdered. But now I’m hearing that there may not be a sure sign of poison. New reports suggest that if traces of heavy metal were found, it could have been the result of heroin use. Heroin addicts often have higher blood levels of almost all heavy metals tested. But Brittany Murphy wasn't found to have heroin in her system at the time of her death! Well, heroin breaks down in the body within a few hours. As well as that, only very small amounts remain in the blood after five days and hair after 90 days. Even worse, heroin isn't the only drug that contains these levels of metals. Oxycontin and oxycodone and diet pulls are also similar. This makes Brittany Murphy’s passing only MORE confusing, but hopefully her family and friends can find some peace with her death soon.
If you had to guess who the biggest pop star on the radio this year was, who do you think it would be? I mean, there’s a lot of big divas to chose from like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Miley Cyrus… and even though Katy Perry appears to have won the sales battle with Prism, she wasn't the biggest pop star on radio this year! That honor goes to… Bruno Mars. Bruno Mars is the most played artist of 2013, with his hit "Locked Out of Heaven" listed as the top pop airplay song of the year! Congratulations Bruno Mars!
It’s not a secret that Kelly Clarkson’s weight has been scrutinized for years. Now that she's pregnant though, she's looking forward to finally catching a break from the criticism when it comes to her body. Kelly Clarkson said she was excited to embrace her pregnancy curves, saying, "Everybody calls me fat all the time, so I can't wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!" After she gives birth, she also said to not expect her to slim down in record time like other celebrities often do. She said, “I like to set a low standard so people don't expect a lot." LOVE IT!
As Justin Bieber continues his bad behavior, it looks like his fans are becoming un-Beliebers! Sales for his most recent singles have been disappointing, and now, TICKET SALES for his Believe world tour are tanking too! In Australia, for example, where Justin Bieber is supposed to be next week, you almost can’t GIVE a Justin Bieber ticket away. Papers are calling his concert the one that no one wants to go to anymore. His behavior seems to be putting off his fans and driving their parents to resell tickets. Looks like he should drop the bad boy persona!
Chris Brown just got confined for 90 days, but not in jail! Looks like Chris Brown will be headed to rehab! Chris Brown and his lawyer, Mark Geragos, were just in court yesterday for a progress report in the Rihanna assault case. It all happened because the Probation Department notified the judge that Chris Brown went into a another violent rage when he was in a Malibu rehab facility for anger management, and was thrown out of the facility after only 2 weeks! The Probation Department recommended live-in anger management rehab. The judge agreed and ordered Chris Brown to check into a facility for 90 days. The facility must be in the L.A. County and approved by Probation. Chris Brown must also submit to drug testing at the rehab facility and take any prescriptions recommended by the rehab place. The judge even wants a report on the D.C. incident, something that could result in Chris Brown getting his probation yanked in the Rihanna case, which could then result in prison time.
Can Simon Cowell be changing for good? Definitely seems that way when it comes to his personal life. With a baby boy on the way at the end of February with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, Simon Cowell is also preparing to pop the question. My sources are telling me that Simon Cowell has an engagement ring, but is being secretive about the proposal. He is flying to the Caribbean for the Christmas holiday. Lauren Silverman will join him for parts of the holiday trip. So who knows, Simon Cowell could be planning a special holiday proposal. He’s also beyond excited about his son and loves feeling the baby kicking! This doesn’t sound like the Simon Cowell that we know, but I LOVE IT!
Is Kim Kardashian a cheater when it comes to her weight loss? That’s what people are saying! When it comes to Kim Kardashian dropping as much as 70 pounds since giving birth to North West five months ago, the rumor is that she took the easy way out, secretly visiting a Beverly Hills cosmetic plastic surgeon to get work done. That work includes fillers, stretch-mark treatments and a fat-reducing ultrasound procedure on her stomach that costs up to $5,000 a session.
In all, the rumor is that Kim Kardashian spent $80,000. Why? Because Kim Kardashian is desperate to be sexy again. Kim Kardashian is denying the whole thing, tweeting, “I am very frustrated today seeing reports that I got surgery to lose my baby weight! This is FALSE. I worked so hard to train myself to eat right & healthy, I work out so hard & this was such a challenge for me but I did it!!! I'm so proud of my accomplishment & NO ONE will take this away from me with fake reports! Say what u want about me but I work hard & am the most disciplined person u will ever meet!” BURN!
Amanda Bynes is must be on the mend! She is now mentally capable of understanding the nature of the criminal charges she faces, and as a result the road is now clear for her to stand trial for DUI. Amanda Byne's case was in Mental Health Court yesterday morning, and the judge read the court-ordered medical evaluation of the actress, and determined she is now competent to face the DUI charges. Amanda Byne's lawyer, Rich Hutton, did not object to the findings. So the criminal case, which was put on hold, will now go forward. I’m being told though that the ruling will have NO impact on Amanda Bynes’ conservatorship. That’s because even though Amanda Bynes is capable of understanding the nature of legal proceedings, she is nowhere close to being able to care for herself. Hopefully she will make a full recovery soon!
The announcement that Charlie Hunnam was cast and then later replaced in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey was by far the biggest movie news of the year. Frenzied fans expressed their disappointment in the decision. But the film's producer, Michael De Luca, explained that online critics didn't have any effect on the casting decision. He said that Charlie Hunnam was so awesome in this audition that he did with Dakota Johnson and he really wanted to play that character, and the making of the movie isn’t based on Twitter." So what REALLY happened that led to the recasting decision? Everyone wanted it to work out, including Charlie Hunnam. But according to De Luca, "In terms of schedule, to be free from Sons of Anarchy in time to show up on the set of our movie, the physical transformation and the psychological transformation from Jax to Christian Grey was more than he could accomplish in the time that we had. To his credit, he came to us and said, ‘I don't think I'm going to be able to get there in the time we have, and I don't want to do a bad job. I'm not going to be able to turn into this guy." At least we have some clarity now!
Adam Levine may have been named PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive, but his own fiancée, Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo, probably had the best reaction out of everyone. How did she respond? Adam Leving said with "Laughter, a lot of laughter. She's keeping me humble." Adam Levine shared the news with her by saying, "Hey, how ya doing? Let’s go to dinner tonight. And PEOPLE magazine says I’m the Sexiest Man Alive.” I’m sure she approves of the decision! As for his band, friends and family, Adam Levine said he’ll be the butt of every joke that they make for the next 20 years. It’s a good joke to make!
Guess all that "practice" paid off! Kelly Clarkson announced on Twitter that she’s pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Brandon Blackstock! She tweeted, "I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever." Kelly Clarkson has been very vocal about wanting to have a baby, saying it’s what she wanted more than anything! Kelly Clarkson even said, "My record label is freaking out because all I can talk about now are babies. We're really excited and want to get our family started. I'm 31 and we'd like to do it the natural way. My eggs aren't getting any younger! So we're really excited." Brandon Blackstock already has two kids that Kelly Clarkson loves and plays mom to! Just last week, Kelly Clarkson played coy when asked by Jay Leno if she was pregnant, telling him only that they weren't "announcing anything right now.” So we all had a feeling! Congratulations to them!
A ceasefire has been struck between Charlie Sheen Charlie Sheen and the embattled Los Angeles County Department of Children & Family Services over the custody of his twin sons! Charlie Sheen, who had labeled the organization “incompetent and lascivious,” has finally recognized that if he wants to spend time with the boys, he’ll need to cooperate with child protective services. Charlie Sheen didn’t get involved when it came to his second wife, Denise Richards, becoming the temporary guardian of the boys. He had visitation almost every day. Now that the twins are with Brooke Mueller’s brother, he hasn’t been able to see them. For that to change, Charlie Sheen needed to step up and participate. Charlie Sheen wants to and I’m being told will be a big part of the boy’s lives. They are his sons and he wants to do whatever is necessary to make that happen. This is one of the first steps. Good for Charlie Sheen, stepping up!
Unreal! Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Nene Leakes says she's lucky to be alive after doctors found blood clots on her lung. She wrote a post on her website explaining that she went to the hospital after feeling "a little short of breath." Nene Leakes wrote, "I know my body and I know when I should be concerned. After some routine tests I was diagnosed with blood clots on my lung. I'm told this happened to me because of the constant traveling around the country that I do for my job." The rumor was that Nene Leakes had a heart attack. She’s
"thankful to be alive."
Who do you think made more money between June 2012 and June 2013 over artists like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Coldplay? Well, the number one spot goes to none other than.... MADONNA! SURPRISE! According to Forbes, Madonna earned a whopping $125 million thanks to her hugely successful MDNA Tour. Lady Gaga came in second with $80 million, while Bon Jovi ($79 million), Toby Keith ($65 million), Coldplay ($64 million), Justin Bieber ($58 million), Taylor Swift ($55 million), Elton John ($54 million), and Beyoncé and Kenny Chesney (tied with $53 million) rounded out the top 10.

The case of Brittany Murphy’s death is getting more dirty. Officials from the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner could take another look at her body in the hopes of solving her death… but only if new evidence comes to light. The Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter revealed: “While we haven’t been presented with the toxicology reports Brittany Murphy’s father had done, if there was an indication her death wasn’t from natural causes, we would probably exhume the body.” The coroner determined that Brittany Murphy’s death was an accident caused by a combination of pneumonia, an iron deficiency and “multiple drug intoxication. But an independent report that wa made due to Brittany Murphy’s father’s suspicions revealed the presence of heavy metals at two to nine times higher than the levels identified by the World Health Organization as being considered “high.” Heavy metals are most commonly found in rat poison and insecticides Brittany Murphy’s father thinks she was murdered. The whole thing is just devastating. Hopefully they uncover the truth!
It’s almost the end of the road for Howard Stern! He’s made his decision when it comes to returning as a jude on the television show of America’s Got Talent! Looks like he will only do one more season, stating: "It started out as a goof. Now it's becoming a job. I am very excited to be going back to America's Got Talent. I will go back for one more season.” Even returning just for this season wasn’t an easy decision. Howard Stern admitted he had to think long and hard before he signed on for one more season, saying, "I really, really did struggle with this decision because I've been working a long time. I really wanted to decide if this was going to take away too much free time. Did I really still enjoy doing it? Did I have something to say? Is it something I should be involved with still?” I think Howard Stern is going to be greatly missed!
