Everyone can't stop talking about Renee Zellweger's face! Yes, she obviously looks very different, and now she's responded to the hate talk surrounding her appearance. Renee Zellweger is swearing that she looks different because she is healthier and happier than ever, and she's fine with people taking notice. She said, "I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows… My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn't doing such a good job with that." Also, Renee Zellwegger says she's comfortable in her own skin, stating, "Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I'm happy." Happiness can change your face! Who knew?
No one likes being a second, third or even FOURTH choice! So I'm sure Neil Patrick Harris isn't happy today. That's because he wasn't the Academy's first choice to host the 2015 Oscars. First, last year's host Ellen DeGeneres was begged to come back, but she didn't want to host for a third time. Next on the wish list was Chris Rock and then Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who also said no. Then the network went after Neil Patrick Harris! OUCH! The pressure is on even more now!
He wants you to call him! It wasn't too long ago when Keanu Reeves was the BIGGEST actors in the business! Hello, Matrix anyone? Well now Keanu Reeves has only appeared in smaller independent films, and not by choice. He said, "I haven't been getting many offers from the studios." When he was asked if he was ok with that, Keanu Reeves said, "No, it sucks, but it's just the way it is.' Yea, after going from making $35 million for just the first Matrix movie to rarely getting approached by the big Hollywood studios anymore, I would be pretty angry too!
Britney Spears is already doing very well in Vegas under her contract. But now since her show was so successful, Britney Spears is getting an even BETTER deal! With Planet Hollywood being blown away by her ticket sales, she will now go from making $310,000 a performance to making around $475,000 a show. Celine Dion, the top money earner in Vegas, makes $476,000 a show. She's making Celine Dion money now! EVERY WEEK, Britney Spear's people deposit around 1 MILLION DOLLARS into her bank account!
Speaking of Las Vegas residency artists, we might know who the next big artist is going to be! That artist is Jennifer Lopez! She might be joining the ranks of Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Cher and Elvis Presley! I'm hearing that she's SO CLOSE to finalizing a deal to perform 72 shows over the course of one to two years. She'll make $350,000 a show. A rep for Caesars Entertainment had this to say: "Caesars Entertainment is always engaged in conversations with a number of artists to potentially perform at its properties in Las Vegas … at this time, J.Lo is not confirmed to perform at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino." A rep for Lopez is not commenting. I'd love to see that!
Looks like those breakup rumors were far from true! Beyonce and Jay Z have just renewed their vows! People Magazine is reporting that they really did have problems, but they've worked it out for the sake of their reputations and their daughter Blue Ivy! Beyonce and Jay Z have also been seen house-hunting in Paris several times over the past month. They want to move there, live together and teach Blue Ivy how to speak French. Makes sense considering they got engaged there and where they conceived their daughter. I hope they're really happy!
Not everyone loves Sex And The City! Sarah Jessica Parker has upset the owners of the NYC townhouse where Carrie Bradshaw lived on the show, Sex and the City! Why did she get them mad? Because Sarah Jessica Parker posted photos on the steps of the West Village home to promote her shoe line. One issue: the owners of the West Village home had placed a sign in front that reads, "Do NOT go on staircase please." Sarah Jessica Parker posted the pictures everywhere and the homeowners were mad because the photoshoot was never authorized. The amount of people that still visit the steps is still very intense. People who live there get upset that the sidewalks are constantly jammed." Well, Sarah Jessica Parker definitely isn't helping with that!
At least, that's what Starbucks would have you believe.
Get ready for Chestnut Praline Latte.
The perfect beverage to wash down those holiday meals, don't you think?
It's Starbucks first holiday drink in five years, and industry experts think it's the chain's answer to the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Dunkin' Donuts.
Starbucks told the folks at Fox News that their drink is "inspired by the time-honored holiday tradition of warm roasted chestnuts… with freshly steamed milk and flavors of caramelized chestnuts and spices." You can add whipped cream and praline sprinkles, if you wish.
If you're salivating, grab a napkin or a bib. The drink won't be available nationwide until November 21.
