Poor Rihanna. Putting out an album every year seems like it’s taking a toll on the singer’s health. Entertainment Tonight reports she was rushed to a New York City hospital after her fabulous attendance at the Met Gala Monday night. One of her followers asked her why she had been quiet all day when Rihanna replied by tweeting a photo of an IV in her arm. She didn’t give a reason why she was in the hospital, but according to Entertainment Tonight a source tells them she “had a fever and flu since last week and needed an IV but is fine now.” Read more…
Before we get into anything else, can we please just say how delicious Andrew Garfield looks on the June cover of V Man? We’re crushing hard-core. What’s really awesome about this spread, though, other than the pictures, is the fact that they got the original Spider-Man himself, Tobey Maguire to interview Andrew. How cool is that? It’s like — Peter Parker, meet Peter Parker! The whole piece is quite conversational in nature and full of them cracking jokes. For instance when Tobey, laughingly, asks Andrew, “Would that be the release of The Amazing Spider-Man?!” and Andrew replies, “That’s the one! Do you know about this movie?”
The conversation reveals the actors’ mutual admiration, as Tobey responded to that previous statement, “I do know about it! Actually, when it was coming together, I was particularly excited at two moments: One was when [director] Marc Webb got involved. I think he’s an interesting and cool choice. And then I was certainly curious as to who was going to play Peter Parker. When I heard it was you, I was literally like, F— perfect!” The two also chat about the audition process for the role, and how physically demanding it is, while comparing notes about their own particular experiences. We have to say, it sounds kind of grueling, emotionally and mentally more than anything!
Stories that John Travolta has propositioned his masseurs exploded over the Internet over the last two days. Well, him being gay is a rumor that has been around forever, but now that serious allegations of harassment are being pointed at him, the rumors are taking an ugly turn. A masseur is currently trying to sue Travolta for $2 million, for inappropriate sexual contact, saying that Travolta booked the masseur for a $200-an-hour massage appointment and then proceeded to grope him. He then, allegedly, suggested he be allowed to give the masseur a “reverse massage,” and said, “Come on dude, I’ll j— you off!!!”
Soon after, a second lawsuit emerged from another masseur in Atlanta, claiming even more inappropriate sexual conduct which included a lot more “glutes work.” While we’re waiting to hear about what Travolta’s team has to say about this second allegation, they’re already working hard on dismissing the first one, with a spokesperson saying, “This lawsuit is a complete fiction and fabrication. None of the events claimed in the suit ever occurred. The plaintiff, who refuses to give their name, knows that the suit is a baseless lie. It is for that reason that the plaintiff hasn’t been identified with a name, even though it is required to do so.”
Perhaps this bit of information from TMZ will help their case more. The first masseur says that the harassment went down at the Beverly Hills hotel in L.A., but the site has photographs of Travolta the same day that the supposed man-handling went down … in New York. Can’t be in two places at the same time, right? The photograph is dated January 16, and TMZ also has a receipt totaling $382 with the addition of a $100 tip paid by Travolta, the same day, at Mr. Chow, also in New York. How about that? This stuff could completely alter this suit! The second case details that the dirty business went down 12 days later, on January 28 in Atlanta, so we’re waiting to see what defense pops up from the actor’s team about that. Photographic evidence is pretty hard to refute.
If Page Six, has their story straight, then it seems that Sofia Vergara is back to being a singleton. The site reports that she has split up with her boyfriend of an excess of two years, businessman Nick Loeb. Note that she attended the Met Gala solo, but the consolation is that Sofia did make it on our best-dressed list! That Marchesa dress on her was just ace. It sucks that they’ve broken up, but it helps coming out of a split looking the best you ever have, right?
Apparently, the ex-couple called their relationship off last weekend after a long spate of arguments. A source reveals, “Sofia was confiding in friends at the ball that she and Nick have split. They have been fighting a lot recently and have been on the brink of splitting many times. It is not yet clear if they are over for good, but they are done as a couple for now.” We have a feeling that she won’t be single for too long. Not just because of the way she looks, but because she seems like a pretty awesome woman too!
Way to go Angelina Jolie, Catherine Middleton! Okay, we’re not saying that Kate’s leg is as visible as Angelina’s leg at the Oscar’s, but for a member of the Royal Family, this is a pretty solid display of flesh. The Duchess and her husband, Prince William were at the Claridges Hotel in Mayfair, London, yesterday to go to the elite dining club called “Thirty Club”, and wifey really nailed it. Kate wore a cream Roland Mouret gown called the “lombard” which was from Mouret’s 2009 line, and inspired by the actress Carole Lombard. Not only was it slim-fit, but it had this cheeky slit up the front, which allowed the Duchess to flash some very toned legs. The fact that they were encased in crystal-studded Jimmy Choo’s made it even better. Don’t think we didn’t notice the red-painted toenails, Kate! Can we please add this to her list of best fashion looks?
We’re hoping you went through our extensive Met Gala coverage yesterday. If you did, then two things will start occurring to you as we delve into this deliciously dissing post. The first was this: Someone as hot as Kate Upton had to pay her way to get into the Met event, offering up a check of $25,000 to Vogue Editrix and Gala chairperson Anna Wintour. The second point that should also be hitting you is … where was Kim Kardashian? This may seem disconnected from the first train of thought, but it’s not, because Kim is everywhere, all the time, so her absence at this A-list to beat all A-list events in surprising. Besides, if Kate Upton could buy her way in, you know that Kim would’ve tried. This is the Oscars of Fashion after all. And Kimmy’s boyfriend, Kanye West, was attending as well.
Sadly, her dreams of attending future Met Galas have been shattered thanks to this bit of gossip unearthed by RadarOnline. According to sources in the know, Kim will never be allowed to step foot into the event because, “Anna hates Kim. Why would she be invited to the event? It is all the biggest stars in the world and Kim doesn’t fit that bill at all.” Burn! And no, Kim can’t pull a Kate Upton and throw down some cash. The source added, “The Met Gala is $25,000 a ticket, but Kim can’t even buy her way in. Anna Wintour does NOT want her there!”
Kim must’ve known about this edict, because there is no way in hell that she didn’t send out feelers months before the event. Being frosted out may be a horrible thing, but the Kardashians aren’t anything if not krafty. To show that she was far too busy to attend the bash anyway, Kim made sure she was photographed all over L.A. running errands. “Kim and her camp will deny that she wasn’t invited by saying that she had business in L.A., but that is a lie. She would have done anything to be there with all the A-listers, ” the chatty source clarifies. Do note that when Anna Wintour nixes you, you’re nixed for good, so the Kimster shouldn’t even hope for any Vogue coverage, as the sources shoved in the final nail in KK’s coffin, saying, “Anna Wintour would allow Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue over her dead body. As long as Anna in charge you will NOT see Kim on Vogue.” D.E.N.I.E.D!
Rumors about John Travolta’s questionable trips to the spa have been commonplace in Hollywood for years, but yesterday’s report alleging that the actor (possibly) attempted to give a “reverse massage” to his masseur may have opened the legal floodgates. Today a second masseur is stepping forward with a sexual battery lawsuit against, and is seeking $2 million in damages from Travolta. In a suit filed this morning by the same lawyer as the first case, an Atlanta-area spa-worker claims he was called to Travolta’s hotel suite back in January to give a deep tissue massage. Let’s head over to the exclusive documents provided by RadarOnline to tell us more tell us more!
“Travolta had ‘a strange demeanor, bloodshot eyes and climbed onto the already setup massage table…Travolta removed the entire sheet from his body, and he claimed the sheets were sticky and could not tolerate the heat… Travolta further indicated that he likes a lot of “Glutes” work meaning a massage on his buttocks.’”
Terrell Owens holds many NFL records for being one of the best wide receivers in the league. But his football talents aren’t what made him a trending a topic on Twitter today. T.O. appeared on Dr. Philthis afternoon to address the deadbeat dad accusation that has hung over his head since the T.O. Show aired. NBC Sports reports that Owens opened up about making $80 million in his 15-year career, but has squandered nearly all of it. Lawdhavemercy. $80 million just gone. Read more…
Kristen Stewart has given you so much over the years: mad sneaker game, someone to vicariously kiss Robert Pattinson through, an excellent Snow White movie (we’re assuming)(based on the trailers). Now she’s even sacrificed the integrity of her foot to your insatiable thirst for Breaking Dawn: Part 2. When will it be enough? “Well, I’m starting a promotional tour, so I figured I needed to hurt myself,” Kristen joked after hobbling out for her interview on Jimmy Kimmel last night. “I promise you it’s not a ploy to wear flats.” We would never dream of it. Kristen allegedly sustained her injury while doing reshoots for the last vamp movie. “I stepped on a nail,” she explained. “Lucky me!” Man, is the fact that KStew would bleed for your love of Twilight finally enough? If not, is that Cosby sweater? Personally, that sweater is satisfying fashion needs we didn’t even know we had.
Even though it probably required a tetanus shot or two, it seems like the third round of reshoots was the cast’s last…meaning the series is truly over for Kristen. “Vampire Bella: goodbye!” Stewart laughed. Then, as if that wasn’t enough, the woman flew from L.A. to New York after filming Kimmel just to give you the fierceness that was her Balenciaga color-block dress at the Met Gala last night. None of us are worthy. Not one of us.
We love the brights trend and we love the women who dare to wear the shades even more. The Met Gala had its fair share of examples and some of the stars scored top marks and made it to the best-dressed list. Like Solange Knowles in a sunshine, peplum Rachel Roy gown. Or Emma Roberts who also wore a semi-peplum Escada number, only in a color that comes between orange and yellow. Katherine McPhee was also part of our best-dressed roll call, wearing a stunning Elie Saab tangerine column.
Some celebrities also made it to out fashion-forward list, wearing ensembles that are risky and not cut-and-dry. January Jones was on the list wearing a neon yellow, futuristic looking Versace gown. Taking the time capsule way back, was Kirsten Dunst who wore a pumpkin colored Rodarte number that looked like it was from the ’40′s. Sadly, landing up on our worst-dressed list was Eva Mendes who wore a terrific punchy shade of orange, but the Prada peplum gown itself was downright frumpy on her. Rounding up this brights post are Ginnifer Goodwin and Kristen Bell, both wearing tangerine. Ginnifer wore a lovely cap-sleeved Monique Lhuillier, while Kristen chose a Tommy Hilfiger halter-necked version which she rocked. See for yourselves!
