Let the Paula Deen drama continue. Nearly a week after parting ways wither her longtime agent, Paula Deen has decided to cut ties with her legal team. The team was defending her against the civil lawsuit filed by Lisa Jackson, a former manager of Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House that Paula Deen co-owns with her brother, Bubba. A source close to the Paula Deen family says "she and her team decided the previous attorneys were out of their depth." Instead, Paula Deen has hired Grace Speights, a Washington, D.C.-based partner in Morgan Lewis's Labor and Employment practice. They are one of the top labor firms in the country. Looks like she’s ready to do damage control!
It must be cool to be Prince William and Kate Middleton! Ahead of the birth of their first child, the royal couple has received a special gift from their local supermarket -- a reserved, VIP parking space. The store has printed an image of a man, woman and child wearing crowns and holding hands in a front parking spot in their lot with the words, "HRH reserved." In a photo of the parking lot, a "royal guard" stands watch over the space. It apparently has created a lot of excitement amongst their customers who are looking forward to the birth of the royal baby. Oh the perks of being royalty!
Kim Kardashian may be staying out of the spotlight for now, but she is experiencing nothing short of pure baby bliss with baby daddy Kanye West.. The three of them apparently always take naps together, cuddle and just hang out. Kim Kardashian’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban says, "I can say Kim's doing amazing. She's really happy and the baby is the most beautiful thing." Just a week ago, on July 4th, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made their first outing together to Bruce Jenner’s Malibu beach house to celebrate the holiday but stayed indoors while the rest of the family played and posed outside. No one spotted them!
Cue the big breakup theories. Kaley Cuoco and Henry Cavill were reported to be an item JUST TWO WEEKS AGO and guess what… my sources are already telling me that the couple has split up! Now, apparently after just a few dates together, the two have decided to just remain friends! On July 1st, they were spotted hiking and then, possibly later that day holding hands outside a Los Angeles-area supermarket. Wonder what caused the speedy breakup!
Justin Bieber’s mom is standing up for her son! If you aren’t keeping up, Justin Bieber has recently been making headlines for let’s just say, questionable behavior, like going to the bathroom in a mop bucket in a restaurant. Also, his best friend Lil Twist was arrested for a DUI yesterday while driving Justin Bieber's car. Mom Pattie supports her son, but admits that he has to make and learn from his own mistakes. She said, "My son is not a public figure to me, he is my son. I can't predict what's going to be in the headlines. Justin has always been someone who has to do things his way and I have to be able to believe he will do the right thing and he will come out on top." Doesn’t sound like good advice to me…
In a video posted yesterday, Khloe Kardashian decided to speak up about Kim Kardashian’s absence from the public eye... kind of. In the video she says, "So I guess this is what happens when your sister has a baby and goes into hiding. All the paps that follow her decide to sit outside my house and follow me." Khloe Kardashian is surrounded by a cheating rumor, that her husband hasn’t been faithful to her. Khloe Kardashian also stated that a reporter snuck into their gated area and violated their private property. In that incident, Khloé Kardashian's husband Lamar Odom argued with the photographer. As for Khloé Kardashian, she's feeling the heat from the paparazzi even on the road as well, stating: "I have at least 14 cars following me, stalking me, sitting outside my house. So Kim, please, come out of hiding so they can come back to following you!" The price of fame…
Amanda Bynes’ odd behavior in New York City is normally caught by the paparazzi. But this week she was eating alone in a soup and salad restaurant when a producer from the television show The View witnessed first-hand her “peculiar behavior.” The producer then decided to tell Barbara Walters and Joy Behar. The producer said she noticed someone walking into the Upper West Side restaurant wearing a crazy blonde wig and dark sunglasses. She immediately knew that it was Amanda Bynes. Then the peculiar behavior followed. Amanda Bynes ordered a split pea soup and ate it very quickly and was “mumbling to herself. After she finished her meal, she stood outside and put herself against the glass and stared at the people who were eating in the window. AWKWARD!
The auditions for The X Factor have already started this week, but things got uncomfortable when judge Demi Lovatio’s late father was mentioned on stage. With the recent passing of Demi Lovato’s father and given her estranged relationship with him, contestants were specifically told not to mention him in any way on stage. So of course, one contestant clearly missed the memo. One kid got up on stage to sing and when the judges asked him about his motivation for singing he mentioned a family member that had recently died. He then voiced his condolences to Demi Lovato for just losing her father and she didn’t even respond. All the judges kind of froze and told him to sing. Instead of critiquing him or discussing his performance, all the judges just said ‘no’ and they basically rushed him off the stage. My source is telling me that it was clear that Demi Lovato was visibly uncomfortable and her mood completely changed after that contestant. FAIL!
In case you didn’t know by now, Justin Bieber LOVES TO DRINK! In Canada, his homeland, the drinking age is 19 so that’s all good and dandy, but here in the US, the legal age is 21 so… not so much! Maybe Justin Bieber feels the rules don't apply to him and apparently the Chicago club he partied at on Tuesday night agreed! The nightclub allegedly served him and his crew without carding! But, it’s JUSTIN BIEBER, so it didn't take long before the authorities took notice! The police reportedly kicked Justin Bieber out onto the street and gave the club a citation for serving a minor… a crime with a stiff penalty of no less than $1000! GOOD!
