I thought these charges were a bit crazy when I heard them… and now Denise Richards has been cleared of them! The mother of three was surrounded with child abuse claims thanks to Brooke Mueller back on Thanksgiving, but has now been cleared by the Los Angeles Department of Children & Family Services. They did an investigation and determined that Denise Richards is totally innocent. Brooke Mueller has claimed that Denise Richards had abused her and Charlie Sheen’s sons Bob and Max and Denise's daughters, too! But the accusations seem to be lies. Child welfare officers quickly established that there was no merit to Brooke Mueller’s claims and found that no follow-up investigation would be necessary. The case is now closed. Those are some serious allegations, so I’m glad that she got them cleared!
DENY, DENY, DENY! During her monologue on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, Ellen DeGeneres slammed a tabloid rumor about her marriage with Portia de Rossi. Ellen DeGeneres denied a recent magazine's "Ellen and Portia Marriage Crumbles" claim, which she first spotted after seeing the issue at a hair salon. She said her response was like, 'Oh, what happened? They seemed so happy.' And then I was like, 'Wait, I'm Ellen. And I should know if that was happening." But Ellen DeGeneres became slightly more serious while setting the record straight, saying, "It's so ridiculous to me. There's not one ounce of truth to any of it. I'm very happily married. In fact, the only thing we ever argue about is who loves who more. That is all. It really is true. And we argue if we'd let a kangaroo carry us around in its pouch for a year. I would. She wouldn't. She'll change her mind. Who wouldn't want to be in the pouch of a kangaroo for a year? Hopping around." LOVE HER!
She may be the highest paid actress on TV, but Sofia Vergara didn't get there on her looks alone. Sofia Vergara says that she's a tough negotiator, stating, "I think that the concept of being sexy and smart is difficult for many to grasp. Most people are more comfortable with the notion of 'sexy bimbo.' And I have to admit that I've capitalized on that to negotiate a couple of times, when the 'smart ones' think I have no idea what I can deliver, and I end up costing them more." Sofia Vergara made $30 million last year, and says she’s not ashamed to say that she loves making money. Sofia Vergara admits, "I like business, and the truth is I save way more than I spend. I invest. I plan for the future. I have a special eye for opportunities and work harder than anyone might expect. It is fun to shock people with my business ideas.” THAT’S A SMART WOMAN!
More details about how Paul Walker will be buried has surfaced. The Fast & The Furious star will be cremated and laid to rest, in a very private ceremony in Los Angeles. His remains are at the cemetery, and the funeral will be simple. Just relatives will most likely be there to avoid the spectacle of media and fans in the wake of his death. They’re still also going over details to how Paul Walker and his friend lost control of the car that crashed. If anything else develops we will let you know.
Madonna is on the market again! She has officially split from her boyfriend Brahim Zaibat after three years of dating! Madonna’s rep has confirmed it. The relationship apparently just ran it’s course. I’m being told that they were dancing and working together all the time and then they barely saw each other. Madonna, 55, and the 25-year-old dancer first began dating in late 2010 after Brahim Zaibat performed with Madonna’s daughter at the launch of her Macy's clothing line. He went on to work as a backup dancer during Madonna’s MDNA world tour in 2012. The odd part, the news of this split comes just weeks after Madonna was photographed reuniting with her ex-husband Sean Penn… interesting!
