Robert Pattinson Got Grossed Out Filming Breaking Dawn Birthing Scenes

Filming may have wrapped on Breaking Dawn, the final installment in the Twilight saga, but there’s one scene that Robert Pattinson won’t be forgetting anytime soon.  The star recently talked to Premiere Magazine about Kristen Stewart‘s much anticipated birth scene, and according to him it ain’t that cute.  Sure, it’s gotta be pretty weird to watch your girlfriend give gore-filled simulated birth, but poor R-Patz seemed genuinely shaken by the experience! “There are scenes where Bella looks like an alien,” he reveals. “When the baby eats her from inside, she looks so thin and ghastly.” Sounds more like that scene in Alien to us. “Kristen had to wear this horrible make-up and when I’d see her come on set, I’d ask the crew, ‘Are you sure we’re filming Twilight? Isn’t it supposed to be harmless and PG-13?’” Even vampires can get a little squeamish around blood. Who knew?

Jessica Simpsons Dismisses Breast Reduction Rumors With Boob Puns

After tabloids reported that she’d downsize her D-cups, Jessica Simpson has taken to her Twitter to blast those rumors with a dose of self confidence, and some truly priceless boob-themed puns. “Been getting lots of questions about this alleged breast reduction,” she wrote yesterday. “Not t0 w0rry…I LOVE MY BOOBIES!! They aren’t going anywhere!” Yes Jessica, we were all very concerned. Stories have been making the rounds that the elder Simpson sis would reduce her bust to prep for her wedding with NFL star Eric Johnson. “She thinks if she downsizes her breasts she will look smaller,” a source told InTouch Weekly. “She’s never loved having a huge chest.” But Jessica made boobs of them *zing* by insisting that these ta-ta tales are nothing but false. “It’s UDDERly not true!” she wrote. “Breast assured everyone!” Damn it Jess, you’ve out-punned us!

Lady Gaga Dating Her “You And I” Vid Costar

Gags is in love again, folks! Yes, after the turmoil of her on-again-off-again relationship with long-time partner Luc Carl, Lady Gaga is stepping out with a new Papa Monster; her “You And I” music video co-star Taylor Kinney! If he looks kinda familiar, it might be because he also had a recurring role on Vampire Diaries. Gaga’s hoppin’ on the vampire bandwagon? How mainstream! We would have at least pegged her as a Team Jacob member…

A source tells RadarOnline that the pair met on the set of the music vid back in July, and have been inseparable since. “It was just casual at first, but things are getting pretty hot and heavy,” their insider says. Over the weekend, the newly minted couple were seen getting naughty over some shots of Johnny Walker in a posh California beach bar. “I couldn’t tell it was her at first,” says a fellow barfly, “It just looked like some hot couple making out, but then I realized it was Lady Gaga!” Even on her date nights, Miss Gaga took some time to look after her Little Monsters. “She was so sweet too, she even signed some autographs,” the witness continued. Not only that, but the two were spotted the next morning strolling the streets in the same clothes, and looking a little worse for the wear. “Her hair was a little messy.  It definitely seemed like a ‘morning after’ situation,” an observer spilled to Radar. “They are obviously totally into each other!” Did she take a ride on his disco stick? No one knows for certain, but…Congrats, Gaga! Glad to see she bounced back so quickly after Britney Spears turned her down.

Is Joe Jonas Trying To Get Back With Taylor Swift?

Joe Jonas has got some nerve. First he broke up with Taylor Swift over a twenty-seven second phone call, inspiring her to write a bunch of the songs that have inflicted untold damage on our eardrums. And now after gallivanting around with some of the loveliest ladies in the world, including Demi Lovato, Camille Belle and Ashley Greene, Joe suddenly decides that he wants Taylor back after all? Who does he think he is!? Yes, according to a report in Us Weekly, the middle Jo-Bro is pining for Taylor all over again. And it’ll probably take more than twenty-seven seconds to win her over, that’s for damn sure.

“He wants her back,” a Jonas friend tells Us. “He wants to show her he’s a changed man and would love to see what’s possible between them.” The two have spent years as bitter exes, trading angry-late-night-emails in song. T-Swift aimed the spiteful “Forever and Always” at Jonas, who responded by singing about “superstars and all the tears on her guitar” in his song “Much Better.”  But now the two are “testing the waters” as friends and seeing if the sparks fly once more. “They’re putting their past behind them,” the source explains. “And maybe rekindling an old flame.” And we hope it works out for the two, mostly because we can’t take anymore breakup songs in our lives.

Gwyneth Paltrow Gives Infidelity The GOOP Seal Of Approval

Gwyneth Paltrow lives by a different sort of life code than most of us. Just ask anyone who subscribes to her email newsletter, GOOP. The actress has famously peddled her ‘body cleanse’, recommended trying the $120 fish soup at a New York eatery, and advised working moms to simply get an assistant. And now Gwyneth is at it again by trying to convince us that infidelity is a normal part of marriage. In fact, the self-described “romantic” says that she doesn’t judge those who cheat on their loved ones. Excuse us while we do spit-takes with the $9,000 bottle of prosecco GOOP recommended we buy.

“Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs,” she told a press conference while promoting her upcoming film, Contagion. “It’s like we’re flawed. We’re human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge…” Hmm…is Gwyneth trying to tell us something?  “I think that the more I live my life, the more I learn not to judge people for what they do.” Is she really talking about “friends,” or is there trouble in organic paradise with her husband, Coldplay front man Chris Martin? She claims no, saying “‘I’m lucky. I have a wonderful, blessed life. I have two fantastically delightful children and a very nice husband, so…knock on wood.” But only the finest mahogany will do. Consult your GOOP newsletter for more details.

Kate Gosselin “Freaking Out” As Plus 8 Draws To A Close

You’d think it would be a relief to ditch the camera crew that’s been all up in your business for six years. But apparently it’s not so for Kate Gosselin, who admits that she is “freaking out, big time” at the prospect of life after reality television. The mega-mom put on a brave face last month when it was announced that TLC cancelled her show Kate Plus 8. Yet now she’s admitting her insecurities about the future, and fearing for the welfare of her children. Fearing for the welfare of her children? There’s a first. Kate is claiming that her offspring army “weren’t ready” to leave the show. “Nobody was. I’ve never quit a job in my life without having something else lined up. I don’t know what’s next,” she told People. In fact, the magazine made Kate’s financial woes their cover story this week. That oughta make the kids feel better.

“I told them I will work my fingers to the bone to make sure that they can stay here and go to their school,” she continued. “There are no guarantees in life for anyone, but they know that I’m giving it my best shot.” How…comforting? Damn, that’s a cold dose of reality, and not the kind that pays the big bucks. The real question is, what the hell happened to her piles of TV cash? Between …Plus 8 and her stint on Dancing With The Stars, you’d think she’d be able to build a house out of benjamins for her brood. Our guess? Divorce lawyers, therapy fees for eight, and salon bills for making her hair look less like a porcupine.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Tearful Tribute To Uncle Frank Will Destroy You

Get ready for your mid-morning cry sesh, folks. Jimmy Kimmel made an emotional return to his late night show last night following the death of his beloved Uncle Frank Potenza on August 23rd. Frank had been a mainstay on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! since it’s debut back in 2003, often acting as the most hilarious part of the comedy sketches. And like a good nephew, Jimmy paid a touching a teary tribute to his uncle in the opening monologue. And it will have you crying harder than Beaches and My Girl combined.

“Listen, I’m gonna try to do this without crying, but I’m probably gonna fail,” he told the audience. “But just turn away or something, because it’s embarrassing. It really is.” He then launched into his favorite Frank anecdotes, including the former police man’s desire to live to 103 and become to oldest retired cop on record. “Not because he wanted to set a record or be in the paper,” Jimmy clarified, “he just wanted to stick them for another 25 years of pension checks.” A man after our own heart. “Uncle Frank loved being a part of this show…He loved you,” said the visibly emotional host. “And thanks to all of you who came to the show and watched, for indulging me and letting me put my crazy uncle on television.”

Jimmy then rolled a montage of Frank’s greatest TV moments, set to the tune “My Way” by that other Frank, Frank Sinatra. Excuse us for a moment, we seem to have something in our eye…*tear*

Vanessa Hudgens Channels The Girl From The Ring With New Hair Extensions

We’ll be the first to admit that Vanessa Hudgens has been going through a bit of a rough patch with her hair lately. Ever since lobbing off her trademark long locks for her role in Gimme Shelter, the former teen queen has tried many different styles to tame her self-described soccer mom ‘do. But we’re not so sure that these massive extensions are the best solution. She debuted the new tresses at the U.S. Open over the weekend, and it reminded us that we haven’t seen The Ring in a while. What stylist did she go to!? We’ve seen more realistic hair on stuffed Rasta bananas. Are you diggin’ the hair enhancement, or do you think she should go back to trying the shorter styles? Let us know!

Ryan Gosling Has A PDA-Filled Disney Date With Eva Mendes

Listen. Do you hear that? That’s the sound of millions of hearts shattering to the strains of “It’s A Small World After All”. It looks like our favorite earth quakin’, fight breakin’ hero Ryan Gosling has a new lady love in his life…and sadly, it isn’t Rachel McAdams again. Ryan spent the weekend canoodling around Disneyland with his The Place Beyond The Pines costar, Eva Mendes. Exclusive pics from Us Weekly show the two holding hands and kissing. *Gasp* Not in front of Goofy, guys! “They were very playful,” a fellow Disney reveler told Us. “Eva was skipping around like a little girl…She would lean into him and she held his arm the entire time.” They rode rides together, and sampled the park’s finest fairground cuisine, including churros, cotton candy and corn-on-the-cob. “She fed him,” said an observer.

According to a source on the set of their new movie, the twosome have been moving toward more-than-costars status for quite some time. “It hasn’t been a secret how excited Eva’s been to film with him, and she’s always joked with us about how gorgeous he is,” they told US. “She’s never been shy about having the hots for him! There’s always been this strong chemistry…this was just a matter of time.” We can only imagine the passionate wet kisses under Splash Mountain. Disneyland may the happiest place on Earth for them, but it just crushed an untold number of fan girl/boy dreams. The Mickey Mouse giveth, and the Mickey Mouse taketh away.
