Most of us would have been cast out of society if we’d been caught in a compromising position at an adult movie theater, but not Fred Willard! Despite being fired from PBS, Willard seems to be taking his (seriously gross) scandal in stride, even joking about it on Fallon last night. “The movie you went to see..was it The Firm? Was it Free Willy? Was it Anaconda?” Jimmy Fallon cracked. “No, sadly it was Get Shorty,” Willard joked back. Dang, son! That takes some serious stones. Of course, if Fred rides this out like we think he will, he certainly won’t be the first celeb to survive a scandal. Celebs like…
Rekindling love along the French Riviera makes for a great scene in a romantic movie. Only this isn’t a rom-com, it’s allegedly ex-lovers Rihanna and Chris Brown. The New York Post reports the two ex-lovebirds shared an intimate dinner a deux in Monaco. Adding grist to the rumor mill, Rihanna has been tweeting some rather cryptic messages like “#3words last night was beautiful,” and, “Touch down baby, help me pick out my fit,” indicating her “baby” had arrived. Not to mention the alleged dinner date she had with Chris in L.A. before her vacation. Read more…
We were just nodding our heads in agreement with Crushable’s editorial, urging people to stop calling Kristen Stewart a homewrecker without putting any blame on the actual married person in the affair, Rupert Sanders, when we got this terrible story from Radar Online, which basically indicates that Charlize Theron thinks Kristen Stewart is a homewrecker.
“Charlize is absolutely fuming with Kristen for having an affair with Rupert,” the gossip site quotes an “insider” as saying. “She is very tight with Liberty, has often socialized with the family over dinner and cannot believe Kristen has done this.”
Sanders’ wife, Liberty Ross, played Stewart’s mother in Snow White and the Huntsman, and Theron befriended both of her co-stars on the set. The story goes on to state how Theron feels sympathy for Liberty and her two children and thinks Kristen betrayed her trust. Of course, this all sounds like pure speculation to us. Probably, if you were friends with two people and one of them had an affair with the other’s husband, you would be fuming too. But also, if this is true, we hope Charlize keeps up with the “older sister” feelings she has for Kristen and maybe guides her through this difficult time.
But again, we wonder where the anger is for director Sanders, who’s supposed to be the older and wiser person in all of this. And is this week OVER yet?

We feel like celebrity beefs have gotten increasingly random lately. Has anyone else noticed this? We blame Twitter, just like we blame Twitter for the current beef between Ice-T and Rush Limbaugh. Well…okay, we blame Twitter and Rush Limbaugh. “He knew the word ‘tyranny.’ And he knows that tyranny comes from government representatives. Double impressive,” the conservative radio host joked about Ice-T, after the rapper used the word while defending gun ownership. “Rush Limbaugh said he was impressed I knew the word ‘tyranny’… He’s a racist piece of sh–,” Ice-T replied on (where else?) Twitter. Jeez, Rush, why are you ripping on someone who agrees with you? And Ice, why are you listening to anything that Rush Limbaugh has to say? Of course, when it comes to celebrity beef, there’s no reasoning with anyone. If there way, how would you explain all the absurd celebrity beefs that have come before?
Of course, the short answer is “not too well.” But rather than pile on the Internet fervor over NuttyMadam’s now-viral Youtube reaction, we turned to some of the superfans we’ve known and loved for a while now. A day after Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders issued devastating apologies for their “indescretion,” our own Kate Spencer seems to have regained her footing, at least. But we’ve been hearing stories of some Robsten devotees spontaneously vomiting upon hearing the news. And that’s pretty understandable: Given the level of devotion they have (had?) for Stewart, this can feel like a really personal loss. What we weren’t expecting is the way some bloggers have pulled the plug on the endeavor (at least temporarily), or are simply maintaining radio silence.
“As Kristen takes this time for herself and those closest to her, we will use this opportunity to take a break from blogging and try to regain the piece of us that was lost the last few days,” the administrators of Kristen Stewart News wrote in a post today. “A hiatus will allow us to figure out the best way to move forward.”
Hours after we heard Rob Pattinson had temporarily moved out of the house he shares with Kristen Stewart in Los Feliz, following her apology for cheating with director Rupert Sanders, X17 snapped some shots of what could potentially be a moving van outside their home. Okay, maybe they just…decided to get…a big creepy van? Ugh, we know. It doesn’t look good. You know what else doesn’t look good? The photo of KStew sharing an intimate meal with Sanders in Berlin back in May. RadarOnline snagged the pic of Rupert and Kristen dining out at Monsieur Vuong without their respective partners; while it’s not salacious, seeing them dining out and getting close doesn’t exactly jibe with Kristen’s assertion their cheating was something “momentary” and unplanned. We apologize for that ball of dread in your stomach right now, Robsten fan. We feel your pain.
After the world of Robsten blew up yesterday, and fans cross their fingers that Kristen Stewart’s public apology is just part of a real attempt to patch things up with Robert Pattinson, the gossips are all hunting for clues about how much RPattz — and Rupert Sanders’ wife Liberty Ross — knew was going on before the rest of the world. Most devastating is this quote from the New York Post from a witness backstage at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night: “Rob and Kristen were having a long and intense conversation backstage, and he looked miserable, heartbroken and humiliated. She was pleading.”
But they looked so sweet together onstage! Could he actually have found out THAT NIGHT? Sounds like a nightmare. But we can’t really put a whole lot of stock in this account — they could have just been having a heated debate over Rob’s decision to give the surfboards away to the fans. Still, this is the only thing we have to go on about what his reaction to her makeout session might have been.
UPDATE: People is now reporting that Pattinson has moved out of the L.A. home he shared with Stewart.
That kind of meshes with his quote in Vanity Fair back in April, when he seemed pretty intolerant of infidelity: “There’s a thing I’ve never got, why do people cheat? I’m not the casual-affair kind of guy. If I choose to be with someone, it’s because I really want it. When I have a relationship, I’m 100 percent into it.”
Between the intervention of his family and the pain of detox, we already thought The Situation’s struggle with addiction sounded devastating enough. Turns out, we didn’t know the half of it. First of all, the Jersey Shore cast member now reveals that he had become addicted to the narcotic painkiller Oxycodone. “They gave me energy,” the Sitch admits in an interview with InTouch. “I felt euphoric.” We also find out when the Situation started taking said pills: after injuring himself while on Dancing With The Stars in fall 2010. Oh no. Look, we love DWTS as much as the next Midwestern mom, but having Tom Bergeron and Bruno look on as you spiral into addiction? That is simply cosmically unjust.
As if that wasn’t sad enough (and it was), at his lowest moment the reality star caught a glimpse of what his fate would look like if he didn’t get help. “All of the sudden, I was like, ‘Wait, didn’t she die on prescription painkillers?’” the Situation realized while watching a Brittany Murphy movie. Murphy died in 2009, and medication played a part in her death. “‘That could be me. Am I going to be that guy that was so awesome on the Jersey Shore and then … that’s it?’,” he mused. Click through the jump to see the in-depth interview the Situation gave MTV when he left rehab in May. Personally, we are incredibly grateful that the Situation got treatment, not just for himself, but for us. We literally could not handle writing a tragic post about his death. We could not.
New info on the Jackson family debacle is coming in fast and furious. Yesterday we sorted through the details of everything we know so far. Today TMZ reports that TJ Jackson was granted temporary guardianship of Michael’s kids, thus suspending Katherine’s guardianship of Blanket, Prince Michael and Paris. Meanwhile, Randy Jackson announced on Good Morning America that Katherine was returning to L.A. after a little R&R in Arizona with her daughter Rebbie. Her return didn’t keep the judge from ruling on the case. Read more…
If you had told us we would spend today blogging about the detonation of RobSten, we would have done a five-minute-long spit take, then demanded you get out of our cubicles. Unfortunately, seeing as how Kristen Stewart‘s apology to Robert Pattinson for cheating on him with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders has been immediately followed by Sanders’ own apology, we guess we’re resigned to the fact that this is actually happening. “I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family,” the director told People in a statement. “My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.” Maybe we can pretend this isn’t happen for just a little while long? Please? Please?
Of course, as we pointed out this morning, it was the director’s wife, model Liberty Ross, who offered the first public reaction to the impending scandal. “sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together,” she retweeted before deleting her Twitter account. Ross also allegedly posted a photo of a drunken Snow White to her (now deleted) Instagram account. Her comment on the photo? “Not so pretty and pure.” Oh lordy. Why is there never a fainting couch around when we need one?
