Rihanna has been wearing pants a lot more frequently, which is weird because she never used to bother with such formalities. But now we know the reason: she misses her old butt. The singer apparently isn’t feeling her slender figure and wants her curves to return. “I’m a size 0, and not happy about it!” she told US Magazine. “I went way too far. I prefer myself a bit chunkier. I want my old butt back!”
Riri attributes her unwanted slim down to stress and over-work. “I want to do two more [movies] before touring again next year,” she admitted. “My schedule is crazy!” The relentless touring, recording and filming have started to take a toil on her health, resulting in a scary hospital stay last month following the MET Ball in New York City. “I got no sleep [beforehand],” Rihanna explained. “It’s harsh on your body!” It’s worth noting that too many late nights partying at strip clubs is also harsh on your body…But then again we’re not her mother. Don’t worry Rihanna, your booty will return when the time is right!

We’ll admit it: we still remember Tom Cruise‘s Oprah meltdown from time to time, not to mention the, um, bizarre anti-psychiatry rant he delivered to Matt Lauer on Today in 2005. Those are two things you don’t forget easily. That being said, it’s been 7 years since Cruise lost his mind on that couch; if Ghost Protocol and the upcoming Rock of Ages hadn’t won us over already, Bill Hader‘s epically sweet TomKat story would have.
According to an anecdote Hader told at this week’s Friars Foundation Gala honoring Cruise, the Valkyrie actor talked him out of a “full-on panic attack” on the set of Tropic Thunder, brought on by news of a would-be car bombing in New York, where the SNL actor’s wife and infant daughter lived at the time. “He comes over and he’s like, ‘Are you okay, man?’” Bill recalled. After Tom learned that Hader wasn’t scheduled to go home for two days, “He thinks for a second. ‘No,’ he says. ‘We’ll get you home tonight.’ And in that moment, Tom Cruise, as Les Grossman, in a karate gi, began to direct all my coverage. All my footage, all my close-ups. Boom! We do three perfect takes. Boom, boom, boom. Everyone’s chest-butting each other, some people are chest-butting themselves, people are going insane.” Hader explained. “And he got it done in 45 minutes.” Wow, there are times that somewhat upsetting intensity really pays off!
Media baroness Oprah Winfrey founded her television network OWN as an inspirational antidote to mindless reality TV. But now that her ratings are in the toilet, Oprah must have decided that mindless reality TV dynasties aren’t so bad after all! The Big O has decided to go straight for the big guns, calling upon the Kardashian Klan to breathe some much needed life into her flagging cable channel. The first part of the family’s two-part interview is set to air this Sunday on Oprah’s Next Chapter, where they’ll discuss important issues like Kim’s divorce, Kourtney’s baby, and Kris’s facelift count.
Despite her legendary status, Oprah ventured out to the Kardashian Kompound in Hidden Hills California for what she claimed was one of the lengthiest interviews of her career. “I genuinely wanted to know why they have become a cultural phenomenon,” she explained on her Facebook. “Why do so many people love to watch their every move and why do so many others love to hate them? Are they completely ego centered? Are they really ‘famous for being famous’ or is there something more?” It seems kind of late in the game to be asking these kind of questions, no? We guess Oprah was just too busy being Oprah to worry about keeping up with the Kardashians. It just seems sad: sooner or later everyone gets beaten into the reality game. Even Oprah.
The Kardashian’s seemed thrilled by the visit, but then again the K-Krew would probably be “thrilled” to meet a dog wearing a bow-tie if it meant they could have stage another television event. “This is SO exciting for us all and such a huge honor,” Kris posted to her blog. “We can’t wait!! We love you!!! Thanks for spending the day with us!” Kim also took to her blog to gush about the experience. “Ummmm no big deal Oprah just left my mom’s house! #DreamComeTrue.” We don’t know about you, but we’re starting to wish that Oprah never had a next chapter.
Head under the jump for a behind the scenes look at the interview!
Did you know if you swim in a hotel pool with someone who is not your fiance, you have technically committed adultery with that person? At least if the Internet sees you do it? We’re so sorry you didn’t know! Looks like Miley Cyrus should just throw that sweet Neil Lane rock she got from beloved Liam Hemsworth into the pool filter, because unfortunately the singer was spotted floating around with her assistant Cheyne Thomas in a pool in Miami. We’re so embarrassed; we too have been in so many bodies of water with men we weren’t in a relationship with. We never thought we’d ever type these these words, but…thank god we’re not engaged!
We’re kidding, of course. Come on, Internet! There’s got to be a little smooching, or at least some hand holding, before you can start cooking up scandal. That’s like Gossip 101. Miley’s mom Trish even took to Twitter to scold us all for having dirty minds. “So sad that the nasty tabloids have to make up stories to sell their trashy mags. Cant they just leave these 2 alone and let them be happy?,” she raged. Miley later tweeted in agreement, declaring, “I love my fiancé & he loves me. All the rest is bull s—. We get to live a life of happiness no one can take that away from us!” Seriously, Internet, you should be ashamed of yourself.

As we gear up for the release of Rock of Ages this week, we’ve been looking back at some of the trends the nostalgic musical so lovingly celebrates, like Malin Akerman’s sexy rocker-chick look and Mary J. Blige’s flashy jumpsuits. More than any one fashion, the movie reminds us of one big trend the late ’80s and early ’90s were famous for: the groupie. Not just the girls who flashed their goods from the audience or hung around by the tour buses, either — there were plenty of high-profile ladies who were eager for a backstage pass. And some of them got a lot more than a private concert in the bargain.
As we gathered this list of our favorite celebrity-rocker pairs, from Cher and Gene Simmons to Tommy Lee and Heather Locklear, one other thing became very evident: All of these couples seemed to share taste in makeup, tight pants, big hair and baggy blazers. It even looks like Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli got their hair cut together. And maybe Rod Stewart and Rachel Hunter could swap blazers, while Axl Rose and Stephanie Seymour traded acid-washed jeans. We’re not sure what exactly Melissa Gilbert and Billy Idol had in common, but, yeah, that happened!

Honestly, we felt a little bad for Kris Humphries after that whole married-to-Kim Kardashian-for-72-days thing. Public break-ups are always embarrassing, and it’s easy to make someone look bad on reality TV. Which is why we cut him some slack when he came off looking like such a goon on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The more we learn about Humphries’ feud with ex-maybe-girlfriend Myla Sinanaj, however, the more we’re convinced that he is, in fact, just a complete asshat. Case in point: according to Sinanaj’s lawyer Joe Tacopina, Kris and his lawyers claimed that Myla was basically prostituting herself to clients at the hotel where she’s employed in an attempt to get Myla to keep quiet about their alleged relationship. 72 days of marriage with this guy? We can barely take 72 minutes of such awfulness.
Meanwhile, TMZ reports that the hotel did their own investigation of the scandalous allegations against Sinanaj and determined that they were false. First of all…ew. Second of all, why would Kris even bother with this public drama? To avoid having to admit he’s been dating someone during his divorce proceedings? That certainly hasn’t stopped Kim and Kanye from shmoodling all over the continental United States. We really didn’t understand why any of this unnecessary fighting was going on in the first place…until we considered that Kris might actually just be a bona fide jerk. Allegedly! That might be the the only reasonable explanation. And even then? It’s completely unreasonable!

Knowing that her first offspring got an unusual moniker, we’ve been waiting with baited breath to see if Alyson Hannigan‘s second-born would rake in a similarly odd and/or awesome name. We knew she’d come through. Hannigan and husband Alexis Denisof welcomed their second daughter Keeva Jane Denisof on Wednesday, May 23. “They are all doing well,” their rep told People. Little Keeva Jane joins 3-year-old sis Satyana in the ever-increasing pool of child who will never, ever, ever find a magnet or a keychain with their name on it at Disney World. Not ever.
The How I Met Your Mother actress announced her pregnancy back in December, and we’re glad she used her second and third trimesters wisely. Wisely looking through baby name books, that is. Maybe Alyson and Alexis only waited until now to announce the baby’s arrival because they’ve been locked in a death match over which vaguely action hero-ish name to give her? We wouldn’t be surprised. The only downside to such unusual baby names? if we name our kids Satyana and Keeva, it’s going to be so obvious how much we love Alyson Hannigan, including her work in American Reunion. Oh lord, we didn’t mean to type that! Um…uh…we hated that movie! It was so sophomoric and…gah…forget we said anything! Look at this photo Alyson posted to Instagram of her baby girl’s hand instead!

You might find this news unfathomable, but it’s true: David Arquette and Courteney Cox are still legally married, despite having separated all the way back in October 2010. That’s like being separated for a millennium in HMT (Hollywood Marriage Time)! Factoring in Arquette’s erratic appearance on Jimmy Kimmel last month, intermittent rumors about Cox getting it on with her Cougar Town costar Josh Hopkins and mutual overshares with Howard Stern last year, it’s a wonder it took until now for David Arquette to officially file divorce papers. Do you think he literally forgot he was married? We would honestly not put it past the man…
According to TMZ, Arquette cited “irreconcilable differences” on the filing he submitted last Friday; he is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s daughter Coco, and did not request spousal or child support. Overall, looks like a quiet end to a crazy…wait, what’s that? Arquette is representing himself in the divorce? He’s not getting a lawyer? Plus the papers he filed are dated March 23, implying that he just sat on them for three months? Oh boy. Well, we look forward to finding out the outcome of their divorce. Or rather, we look forward to our great-great-grandchildren finding out the outcome of their divorce, seeing as how we’ll be dead and gone for any number of decades at that point.

We’ve all been there before: you walk out of the house, completely certain your high-waisted white satin sea creature-themed hot pants will cover up your business, then all of a sudden you find yourself having to to bend over slightly. You guys know what we’re talking about! Selena Gomez certainly does, having stepped out in a pair of painfully short bottoms while promoting her new self-titled fragrance at Macy’s in New York today. Booty shorts? More like booty TOO-shorts! Are we right, or are we right? Seriously though, the inseam on those things has to be like .05 inches. How did Selena manage to get out of the car? And we don’t even have time to discus that matching starfish bikini top. There just aren’t enough hours in the day!
We guess Justin Bieber‘s lady really is committed to bringing the scandalousness in 2012, as her sexy Elle shoot and soaking wet perfume campaign suggested, though she’s drawing the line at starring in a film version of the salacious hit 50 Shades of Grey. “I don’t think so. I know I’m taking risks, but I don’t think I could do that!” Gomez told MTV. “That would be a little too much for me. I think someone older should do that part.” We’ll admit this booty shorts fail doesn’t look entirely intentional. What do you think of your minor wardrobe malfunction, Selena?

Ten and a half years of marriage for celebrities is a huge accomplishment. Let’s face it, staying together in Hollywood is not the easiest thing to do. Despite Vanessa Bryant owning the deeds to three mansions and being entitled to half of Kobe Bryant’s money, it looks like the two are working toward a reconciliation, according to TMZ. The site reports that Vanessa will not sign the paperwork that would make her divorce from the Lakerstar final. Vanessa may have had a change of heart about the man she’s been with since she was 17-years-old, but the two have yet to move back in together.
California law mandates a six month waiting period from the date of filing before the divorce is officially final. This weekend marks the six month period for the couple. When Vanessa filed for divorce in December the ‘net went bananas about the non-existent prenup. It even prompted Drake to rap in “Stay Schemin,” “Kobe ’bout to lose a hundred fifty M’s/Kobe my n***a I hate it had to be him/B**** you wasn’t with me shooting in the gym.” Well, Drake may get his wish if the two decide to save the marriage. Only time will tell if these two are headed back to marital bliss, but in the meantime take a look at the timeline of their relationship.
November 1999: Kobe and Vanessa met while Vanessa was working as a backup dancer on the set of Tha Eastsidaz “G’d Up” video and he was shooting his own video that was never released. Although Vanessa was a 17-year-old high school student, Bryant courted her anyway — for a whole six months before tying the knot.
May 2000: In the longest courtship ever (we kid, we kid) the couple announced their engagement while Vanessa was still a senior at Marina High School in Huntington Beach. High school graduation and an engagement to a millionaire ball player in the same year must be sweet!
