In the latest issue of Gotham magazine, Robin Wright Penn offers up her philosophy on marriage, in an interview presumably given right before her marriage with Sean Penn ended. She says it’s, “real work, but that’s what you sign up for. And it pays off beautifully, it really does. The outcome, the reward is so great because then your love grows out of those hard times.”
Er, or not. The couple have since split, and some insiders are naming Sean’s obsession with Natalie Portman as the reason. A source tells Star magazine that Robin, “was furious he was messing around with such a young star,” while another insists that Natalie, “stimulates him in ways no other person has, mentally or professionally. There’s a lot more there with Natalie than any of the other girls Sean’s been with.”

And you thought his scream was bad—Danny Gokey‘s performance of “Billie Jean” during his Milwaukee homecoming would have steam coming out of Simon Cowell‘s ears. Blaming a lyric sheet that blew away, Gokey stands silently at first, before arguing with the back-up singers (one announcing “I’d leave it to the professionals!”), messing up the arrangement (“but the key changed!”) and basically getting run over by a merciless band that refuses to let him find his place. Were they big Allison Iraheta fans?
“That’s all I got for you, Milwaukee—I don’t know the words!” If that’s the case, why was he singing it in the first place? Hopefully he’ll learn the words if he’s performing it again for Tuesday’s Top 3.
Katie Price and Peter Andre are breaking up five years, two children, at least five reality shows and countless public appearances after meeting on the UK version of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here. According to their publicists, singer Andre and model Price—formerly known as Jordan— “have both requested that the media respect their families’ privacy at this difficult time.” It’s really happening!
The news is a shock for fans, as less than a week ago they announced plans to conceive a third child during an upcoming vacation in Cyprus. “I’m aiming to plant my seed every night,” Andre told OK! Magazine. What could have gone wrong?
Celebrities such as Amy Poehler, Eva Longoria, Ed Westwick, Kerry Washington, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher swarmed Capitol Hill this weekend to rub elbows with politic big shots at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Funny lady Poehler looked simply stunning in black and white, and Demi and her hubby danced while decked out in Neil Lane diamonds (yep, they make diamond cuff links!). John McCain‘s daughter Meghan allegedly tried to throw her weight around, dropping the old, “Does he even know who the f*ck I am?” after security busted her for showing up with three friends and just two tickets.
We’re not sure what any of these stars have to do with politics, but we’re psyched to see the government get glammed up – Michelle Obama can’t do it all on her own! [Photos: GettyImages]
Twenty years after she shocked the world with her “If I Could Turn Back Time” video—it was only shown after midnight!—Cher is still rocking leather and little else. The singer recalled those sailor-schwinging days at the “David Foster And Friends” show in Vegas this weekend, in a raunchy get-up she first wore in 1992. Looks like the “plastic surgery poster girl” is getting her money’s worth!
Check out the gallery for over thirty years of half-naked highlights from Cher.

As any fan of the Howard Stern Show can tell you, longtime producer Gary Dell’Abate is relentlessly mocked by both his boss and listeners alike. Everything from his teeth, his last name and his intelligence are fair game, as is his love for the New York Mets. So when he took to the mound at Citi Field to toss the first pitch at the Met’s game on Mother’s Day, all eyes were on him with the expectation that he’d somehow screw it up, and screw it up he did!
Gary’s nightmarish throw – which missed the catcher’s mitt but at least a dozen feet – was mocked and discussed on Stern’s show for over an hour this morning, and it’s one of the top searches on Google Trends. Watch his mortifying failure on the clip above. [via NewsDay]
Holy rumor-mill. The word on the web is thatLindsay Lohangot a little too frisky after getting dumped by Samantha Ronson, and has allegedly found herself with a bun in her very tiny, almost nonexistent oven. Damn.
A terrible friend told Showbiz Spy: “I swear she’s carrying. She’s going through big emotional turmoil. She’s not sure if she’ll have it or go through with an abortion that she booked to have in the next few days. Saddest part is she has no idea who the father is. She must have slept with more than two dozen men in the past couple of months.”
24 guys in 60 days? That sounds like the title of a terrible Kate Hudson movie. If this is true, it means that Lindsay has been consistently boning a new guy every 2 and a half days, which is quite a feat – even for LiLo. Could there be any truth to this chunk of gossip? We’ll just have to wait and see if her belly expands. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush have been going strong for two years, so naturally people are always asking the reality starlet when they will be tying the knot.
“So many people rush into it and its all this pressure because they see we’ve been together for awhile,” Kim says. “But, we’re heading there. When we’re ready, we’ll know.”
Kim says marriage is “definitely” in the future, but explains, “We’ve been together two years but we are taking our time and I think hopefully this one will last because of that. We’re just totally dating and normal and happy and there’s no rush.” [Source: People; Photo:Getty Images]
Boy George must not have tied up any male prostitutes and threatened them with a chain over the last four months—the Culture Club singer has left prison after serving just over a quarter of his sentence for false imprisonment. He even looks healthier than when he went in—maybe he got into lifting weights!
While his good behavior behind bars got him out early, Boy (George O’Dowd to family) will still have to wear an ankle monitor and keep a curfew. According to The Sun, O’Dowd was greeted by plenty of bagels and cakes—but no alcohol—at his homecoming.
