Even as Seal insists to Piers Morgan, Tavis Smiley and Ellen DeGeneres that he and Heidi Klum still love and respect each other, despite their separation, the gossip world is doing its darndest to dig up dirt on why the super couple is splitting. We’re kind of getting whiplash from this whole thing — do they still have a chance at a reunion, or has divorce been a long time coming? Draw your own conclusions based on these stories:
- TMZ still maintains that Seal’s “volcanic” temper is the cause of their problems. Talk about a blow to our image of the man who just sang Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” on Ellen.
- Some sources told People that the couple’s trip to Aspen over the holidays marked “the final straw” of their relationship. “Aspen didn’t go as well as planned … there were more lows than highs.” At the same time, paparazzi in the ski town were just as blissfully unaware as the rest of us: “They couldn’t stop kissing and cuddling. They spent a lot of time with their kids, but also managed to sneak in several solo ski runs together. If they were having problems, they were definitely not showing during the day.”
Actress Juliette Lewis does seem to be the kind of lady who is game for all sorts of crazy antics. Still, we wore the expression she has above when we glimpsed a rather graphic photo, first tweeted by the aptly named @TotallyNSFW and then posted on Fleshbot. Gawker is convinced that it is indeed what it appears to be: Juliette having sex with Terry Richardson while standing up. Update: Gawker received an email from Juliette’s publicist denying that the photo is of the actress, yet simultaneously demanding that they take the photo down.
Here’s all we can post of the pic:
It’s sadly easy to imagine how the stresses of divorce and work could lead to the kind of “exhaustion” Demi Moore is apparently suffering from, whether or not substances were involved in her hospitalization on Monday night. While her rep says she’s seeking “professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health,” we’re anxiously awaiting more details on how she’s doing. It can’t be a good sign that she has dropped out of playing Gloria Steinem in Lovelace, according to TMZ. We were so looking forward to seeing her take on the role of the feminist leader.
Meanwhile, the emergency incident report from the Los Angeles Fire Department says a friend on the scene told paramedics Demi was shaking and “acting like she was suffering from a seizure, a source told E! Online. Ooof.
“On the set of 30 Rock, just walked past @alecbaldwin and said Top That!” Tracy Morgan tweeted a couple of hours ago. Phew! We’re so glad he’s feeling better after being hospitalized in Park City over the weekend. He’d collapsed during the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards (and considering the photo above was taken at the ceremony, we’re not surprised!), due to what his spokesperson called “a combination of exhaustion and altitude.” TMZ caught him at the Salt Lake City airport on Monday with an oxygen tank, supporting the altitude explanation.
Apparently, Tracy isn’t alone in feeling the effects of being on higher ground in Utah. VH1 News talked to a number of other stars at Sundance who were still a little lightheaded. Not that they let that slow them down much.

Octavia Spencer has been taking the 2012 awards season by storm. After winning at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and the Golden Globes, she was a sure bet for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination today. But that’s not why her Help co-star Allison Janney was singing her praises yesterday at Sundance. Allison and Octavia go way back, along with fellow Supporting Actress nominee Melissa McCarthy and The Artist co-star Missi Pyle, who all starred in Help director Tate Taylor’s Pretty Ugly People in 2008.
“This has been amazing to see Octavia blossom and see everyone discover her and see how wonderful she is, ’cause we’ve all known for years,” Janney told VH1 News. “We’ve all been friends with her and worked with her. I’ve done all of Tate’s movies with her before and just think the world of her.”
Any time we see Drake in a Hollywood-ish setting, like during his plane-delayed performance at Sundance last weekend, some of us still have a tiny uncool voice in our head saying, “That kid from Degrassi sure is talented.” And so, of course, VH1 News asked the Take Care rapper when he’s finally going to return to his thespian roots.
“I’ve been reading scripts for a while,” he said. “I want to do something great. I want to do something for my culture: the younger people who are still in tune with everything going on. I’m actually writing with my friends right now, [Maz Elsadig and Al Mukadam]. They have a production company called By Any Means Necessary, so we’re writing together trying to figure out the right movie.”
Jennifer Lawrence was poised and confident as she read off the Oscar nominations this morning — we think she pronounced the names a whole lot better than Academy Prez Tom Sherak. Her hair was shiny and a lovely shade of light brown. Her eyes had just a touch of smoke to accent their shape, her cheeks were nicely blushed for the morning gig. And we couldn’t help but imagine one of her Katniss photos floating up there with the Best Actress nominees for next year. But…
What do you guys think of her outfit? The Fashion Court identified the skirt and top as Spring 2012 Prada. And we love the breath of spring that sleeveless blue-and-yellow eyelet top brings. We just kind of think the black eyelet pencil skirt dampens the mood. It’s like a picnic on the top, business on the bottom.
Most of all, we wonder what they’ll say on the Capitol Couture Tumblr.
Disagree? Tweet us all about it @TheFABlife!

We’re very relieved to see that most of the celebrities at Sundance this year have opted to leave their skimpy Los Angeles clothing in their fancy suitcases and don proper winter gear for their Park City romps. Some, like Liv Tyler, learned the hard way that fashion shouldn’t trump practicality, as she told VH1 News.
“It’s all about the shoes,” said the actress, who was there to promote Robot and Frank — a movie starring Frank Langella as an elderly ex-jewel thief and his robot. “Last year, I don’t know what I was thinking, I wore these little Lanvin flats with little white socks. Everything else was all warm and decked out, and I was walking through the slush with frozen toes. So this year I came prepared!”
And does “prepared” include some good long underwear?
Sure, 50 Cent fans should be happy to see him surrounded by bundles of cash, like in the picture above — supposedly after winning $500,000 on Sunday’s Giants-49ers playoff game, if he wasn’t exaggerating on Twitter. But maybe some of his lady fans will want him to lose his next bet on New York. In a Twitter exchange later on Sunday night, he may have made a nonmonetary wager:
“Ok RT @MyBestAssets: @50cent Lets bet. If the Giants lose the Superbowl, u must post ur d*ck on the twitter. If they win, I’ll post my boobs & face on here. Bet?” Fif posted.
Of course, by Monday night, Miss @MyBestAssets seemed to be backing down on her end. “Just reading my mentions about my bet to @50cent. People are way too serious when it comes to twitter,” she wrote.
Well, in that case, we’ll go back to rooting for the Giants.
The nominations for the 84th annual Academy Awards were announced this morning, and Hugo surprised everyone, taking the lead with 11 nods. The Artist was close behind, with 10 nominations. Leonardo DiCaprio’s J. Edgar and Ryan Gosling’s Drive were shut out of any major awards, but Supporting nods for Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy and Moneyball’s Jonah Hill should please a lot of folks. On our homework list: A Better Life (star Demian Bichir is up for Best Actor), Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (ditto for Gary Oldman) and Animated Feature nominee A Cat in Paris, just for its awesome name. Stay tuned for plenty of analysis, photos and more on the Oscars, as we update throughout the day! Scroll down for the complete list.
