Were The Seeds For Kelsey Grammer’s Divorce Sewn At The Tonys?

Kelsey Grammer and his wife, Camille, are getting divorced after 13 years of marriage. Citing “irreconcilable differences”, the petition was initiated by her and she’s asking for joint legal custody and primary physical custody of their two children. The former Frasier star Grammer also has two other children, one each by his two ex-wives.

The news may have come to a shock at some, but when we caught up with Kelsey and Camille at the Tonys last month, the tension was thick. As you’ll see in the clip above, the duo seemed to be drifting apart right before our very eyes. Oh well, at least now the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills –which stars Camille, btw — is guaranteed to have some drama!

Dean McDermott Lands In ICU After Motorcycle Crash

60278851

This doesn’t sound good. Dean McDermott has landed in the ICU with a punctured side and a collapsed lung after a motorcycle accident. His wife, Tori Spelling, gave updates on his condition saying, “He’s in a lot of pain. He’s taking this as a sign and realizing family is too important to risk his life.” This isn’t the first time he’s had a bike accident. He was seen earlier this year with his arm in a sling after crashing his motorbike while going at 70 mph.

That time, he just ended up with bruises and general soreness, but this time around, the injuries are a lot more serious. He was dirt bike riding with some friends when he crashed. The accident caused him to start bleeding heavily from a puncture in his right side. Fortunately, he was well enough to tweet yesterday, announcing, “Thanks for the well wishes. A collapsed lung is no fun, and is a lengthy heal. Feeling pretty bad today. Day 2 is always the worst.” Feel better soon. And get off that bike for a while, dude!

Girls Gone Wild Sleazeball Joe Francis Getting Hitched

15820045

We didn’t think it was possible, but someone finally made an honest man out of JoeGirl Gone WildFrancis. That lucky lady would be his new fiancée, Christina McLarty. He recently popped the question while getting some down time in St. Tropez and, surprise surprise, she said yes! They’re also going to be making a political statement out of the nuptials, Francis revealed, “We have chosen to have a civil domestic partnership because we don’t believe it’s appropriate to be married until our gay and lesbian friends are afforded the same rights as us to legally marry in the United States.” Right on!

Ever the romantic, Francis’s proposal was completely spontaneous (translation: He didn’t want to pop for a ring on the chance she said no). When pressed for comment, he simply said, “We’re having one made.” Don’t expect the party to be so low-key, though. The approximately 200 guest ceremony will probably take place in September at Francis’ Casa Aramara in Punta Mita, Mexico. That’s his crazy deluxe beachfront mansion. Hmmm, wasn’t this guy just in major financial trouble? Anyway, our favorite part of this whole crazy situation is that Quincy Jones –yes, that Quincy Jones– will be his best man! The two have been neighbors for ages in Bel Air. No word yet on how many half-naked women will serve as bridesmaids.

January Jones And Adrien Brody’s Secret Romance

january-jones-adrien-brody-540x

Here’s another couple who’s trying to keep their loving undercover a la the recently busted Robsten. January Jones and Adrien Brody are together, even though they’ve been denying the romance for some time now. They’ve gone the usual “friend” route with the media, but information indicates otherwise. Miz Jones is quite the heartbreaker FYI, having dated Ashton Kutcher, Josh Groban as well as having been linked with Jeremy Piven.

A source revealed, “Adrien loves talking about January. He says, ‘We’re dating. We’re really happy!” Cute! But does this mean dating exclusively? Because apparently, Brody was playing hard at the Omega Constellation Launch in L.A with sources saying, “He was flirting with girls. He was partying hard.” Also, whose house was January leaving when photogs caught her on a walk of shame? Come out with it already. Nothing stays hidden in H’wood!

Nick Jonas Dating Two Les Miz Co-Stars At Once?

60686109

Must remember Jonas Brothers’ purity ring, must remember Jonas Brothers’ purity ring. That’s probably playing in a loop in Nick Jonas‘s head. The youngest JoBro is honing his acting chops as Marius in the musical Les Miserables in London. Hit musical is a hit with ladies, it seems, because Lil Nicky’s totally playing the field.

The youngest Jonas has been on dates with both the female leads, and has all the other women cast members swooning over him too. Lucie Jones, who plays Cosette, and Samantha Barks, who is Eponine, have both been on the receiving end of Nick’s charms. A source busted him saying, “Nick is getting a reputation as a heart-breaker. He’s been out on dates with both Samantha and Lucie and they both seem quite smitten. Nick’s just having fun – but he’s causing some tension between the girls.There’s been a lot of jokes backstage because art is imitating life. In the musical Eponine fancies Marius. But he ends up with Cosette.”

Now, now Nick. Play nice with the ladies!

Robsten Confirmed? They’re A Couple!

60866519

We KNEW it. Well, everyone knew it, but HAH. Robsten(photos) are real! Bring out the tissues, get some ice-cream, keep all breakables away, get a new haircut or buy some new shoes… whatever you need to do to deal with the heartbreak. Eclipse producer Wyck Godfrey has pretty much outed Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson as a couple in an interview with Time. No more acting coy! Months of speculation have come down to this!

He was flat-out asked what he thought about their down-low relationship and responded, “The thing I do think about is, Oh my God, I hope they stay together. Because it could be awkward on set in the next movie if they have a huge falling out. It’s like, Wow, they have to portray this love story through two more movies. God, I hope they stay together; please stay together. That’s what affects my day-to-day.”

Did you read that? Right there… they’re real! They exist!

And that’s not all he gabbed about. When the interviewer asked him about the intense media coverage on them, he commented, “I don’t feel it’s out there anymore. Do people still report on it? If you look at people who have a stable personal life, the rags get tired of them. I think we’re heading to that place where they are together and that’s their life and we better find someone new to create drama out of.”

Awww, they sound cozy. Bella and Edward for real!  Now somebody hand us a tissue.

Elin’s Record Breaking Divorce Settlement

10480574

Elin Nordegren probably didn’t see this one coming either. Her divorce settlement from Tiger Woods is the largest sum that has ever been awarded in a celebrity divorce. Elin’s getting $750 MILLION from the divorce, with a precept that Tiger can’t bring his various girlfriends near the children as well. The only time he can introduce a woman to his children is if he’s planning to put a ring on it ! Ummm, we think he’s probably not going to re-marry for a while at least.  Ladies who are allowed around the kids are married women not romantically linked to Woods and female staff members with whom Elin is familiar.

But there’s a reason why she’s getting such a monumental payout. In return, Elin can never speak about his flings with his 17-or-more ladies out in public.  A source revealed, “Elin is desperate to protect the children from the womanizing side of their father. Tiger’s main fear is her telling her story after he’s rebuilt his reputation, sending him back to the gutter.”

Elin’s lawyers have really gone for the kill here, getting her way more than she originally thought she was worth. But is it worth it for Elin if she can never have her say? They’ve literally put a gag order on her for the rest of her life, a friend explained. “Elin’s legal team have done a great job digging up all sorts of assets. The price of the huge sum is her silence: no interviews, tell-all books, or TV appearances about this for the rest of her life – even if Tiger dies first – or she’ll lose the lot.”

Looks like she’s okay to stay mum because all systems are go. The friend added, “Everything’s signed. Elin is ready to file for divorce at Orlando County Court. She expects to in the next seven days.”

Tiger’s making sure he doesn’t lose out on time with the kids. The deal is that Nordegren gets sole physical custody but they will split legal custody, so Nordegren can’t up and leave without consulting Tiger, who will be allowed to see the kids for half of every week. The custody agreement will be negotiable in five years, and the source revealed, “Elin admits that despite everything, Tiger loves his kids and has been a decent dad. She is confident he will not pursue seeing the children that much, due to his work and lifestyle.”

So, that’s that. Tiger was a complete pig, but who knew Elin could be such a shark?

Rupert Grint Is The Next Leonardo DiCaprio. Really?

57877674

Ronald Weasley just got a huge break (take that Harry)! The redheaded sidekick to Harry Potter has caught the eye of Martin Scorsese, who thinks the actor, Rupert Grint, could possibly become the next He Who Should Be Named. Marty thinks that Grint has mega potential and even compares him to his current muse, Leonardo DiCaprio.

Apparently he thinks the ginge actor could pull off a meaty negative role in one of his films saying, ” I  thought he [Grint] was a great actor in the Harry Potter movies. In a lot of scenes, the boy stole the show. He will always have respect for the movies that gave him such a huge break, but at his age it’s important he doesn’t become typecast. He has to do something really out of his comfort zone in the next few years – play a gangster, play a dirty cop, play a kid with learning difficulties.”

That’s also when he added the movie star comparisons saying, “I would be interested in working with him. I would have no issues in casting him as a gangster, he is a very talented young man … When Leo was in Titanic and Romeo and Juliet, nobody saw him becoming a bad ass in movies like The Departed. But he has become one of the greatest actors of all time. The very same could be true of Rupert.”

Okay, who knew Scorsese was such a Potterhead? And while we may not see adorable, if not slightly gormless Ron-Ron as a bad ass, Marty’s the boss. Accio movie!

Praise The Lord! Alexander Skarsgard Gettin’ Naked On True Blood

We’re going to see a LOT more of Sweden’s sexiest export, Alexander Skarsgard. And Kate Bosworth, you may be dating him, we’re going to pretend you don’t exist. The True Blood deelish-dish has already dropped his pants on the show, but apparently you ain’t seen nothing yet. There’s a whole lot of True Blood nakedness still to come! And it involves another man, he explained, “I’ve got a very, very graphic scene coming up that I shot with a man. I’m not a prude. I’m from Sweden and it’s different there. If it makes sense, I’ll do nudity, and it’s made sense every single time I’m naked on the show. And I love to be naked. It’s kind of liberating.”

Exceedingly liberating for us too. Feel free to take a bite outta us anytime. But who’s he getting naked with, is the question? Us? Please?

Awwww! Zoe Saldana Is Engaged

59591397

She’s ditched Jake Sully, after going through all that they did together. Sigh. Avatar‘s Zoe Saldana is engaged to Keith Britton her non-Na’avi boyfriend of TEN years. Yes, ten. That’s a lifetime in Hollywood years. A source reveals, “They’ve been together forever. They’re a great couple.”

Don’t expect her to be shouting the news from rooftops, though. She’s always kept her relationship with the actor/CEO of My Fashion Database completely on the down-low. Which she plans to translate into a no-stress wedding, much like Carrie Underwood. Another source commented, “She doesn’t even introduce him as her fiancé. She will just say, ‘This is Keith.’ She likes to keep her personal life to herself and wants people to focus on her as an actress. She hasn’t stopped working to plan anything.”

Congratulations, you two! Apart from all the true love-soulmate stuff, here’s something that should keep the motor running. Saldana loves her some sexy time, telling Essence, “Love it, love it, love it — can’t live without it! I love sex.”
