If anyone can make seeing a counselor seem like a cool Saturday night activity to do with your friends, it’s definitely Lady Gaga. “For those wondering about the “counseling” at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite,” Lady Gaga tweeted to her fans today. “At the #BornBraveBus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends.” Do we even have to say that we love this? What other international pop star is out there trying to make it okay for teens to get therapy? Not nobody!
First eating disorders, now depression: Gaga has clearly got her teen fans’ backs. Anything to lessen the stigma around mental illness is okay by us! “#BornBraveBus Is a place where mental health + depression are taken seriously w/ no judgement, FREE real help available to all #BraverWorld,” Gaga explained. “I feel like most kids don’t look for help because they feel embarrassed so mom + I wanted to break the stigmas around “help” and make it fun.” We are so all about this. Can we eventually have counseling buses at every concert? How about every high school football game? Just constantly driving the world around helping people? We need Bill Gates or someone equally as loaded to help make this happen immediately.
Nick Stahl with wife Rose Murphy in 2011; at the Terminator 3 premiere in 2003.
Oh, look at that, it’s Nick Stahl’s turn to fall victim once again to that darn Terminator curse. Last we heard of the ill fates befalling actors who played John Connor, Edward Furlong was being arrested for domestic violence in May. Nick’s latest misfortune is a little better: He was booked yesterday for misdemeanor lewd conduct after reportedly appearing to touch himself inappropriately at a porn shop in Hollywood, TMZ reports. He was released a short time later. The gossip site says one of the officers who arrested him was the guy who apprehended Fred Willard for a similar misunderstanding in a theater earlier this year. (We’ll get back to you as we look into whether Fred has some connection to the Terminator franchise.)
It was no doubt a frustrating end to a troubling year for Stahl, whose wife Rose had reported him missing in May, before informing everyone that he had been found and was checked into rehab. He went missing again in July and again returned, enrolling in AA, according to his wife.

We should have known it was too good to be true. Only Celebrity Gossip Santa himself could have given us a gift as wonderful as Kevin Federline‘s older brother claiming to be the father of Britney Spears‘ eldest son. Us Weekly reported earlier today that Christopher Federline had filed a restraining order against Spears’ on December 18, claiming she had stolen his credit card and made some purchases. In his court papers, he casually mentions the fact that he is the father of Sean Preston. The Smoking Gun now reveals that the court papers were seemingly filed by convicted felon Jonathan Lee Riches. How could we be so gullible? The details of the story alone should have tipped us off that it was fake:
Jessica Simpson, it might be time to get on board the acute morning sickness train. Everybody’s doing it: Kate Middleton, um, allegedly Kim Kardashian… Okay, that’s it so far. According to MediaTakeout, Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy with Kanye West was allegedly confirmed when a doctor visited her home to treat a nasty bout of “acute morning sickness” stemming from “the same illness that Princess Kate Middleton is suffering from.” Has debilitating nausea ever been so trendy? We sure hope not!
Of course, there’s literally no proof Kim and Kanye are even pregnant, let alone laying on the floor of the bathroom, drinking ginger ale and moaning. Plus the Duchess of Cambridge suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, a pregnancy illness which tends to be rare. Unless Kim has the shadiest, most loose-lipped obstetrician of all time, we’re going to go ahead and call shenanigans on this morning sickness tale. But we’re not ready to let go of the pregnancy rumor entirely! Kim and Kanye have made it very clear they’re in it to win it, and rumors suggest that their long-term plans include a baby. Man, Kimye’s kids are going to be so cute. They’re the only reason we still put up with these too!

Soulja Boy, tell ‘em about the fantastic sale going on at Dress Barn! If you’re a person, place or thing that has $10 to spare, we’re excited to inform you that the “Pretty Boy Swag” rapper will hype you on on his music group’s Twitter account. Bossip alerted us to the fact that Soulja Boy’s website is selling everything from retweets and shout-outs for under $5 to a beat or verse for $10,000. You can buy it all right now on PayPal! How much to have Soulja Boy namecheck you in his next leaked dick pic? Too soon?
Considering his personal Twitter profile brags that he “just signed an 8 Million Dollar Endorsement Deal,” we don’t know exactly why Soulja Boy is giving out his Twitter love at such reasonable prices. That being said, there are plenty of people and places we think could use the Soulja Boy boost. Feel free to take our suggestions if you’ve got the $2.99, ya’ll!
This one was just too crazytown to ignore: According to the National Enquirer, via Radar, a private investigator claims to have evidence that Whitney Houston’s death in February was not just an accidental drowning but murder. By drug dealers. To whom she owed $1.5 million.
It’s that time of year again, when all sorts of engagement and wedding news starts coming in as celebrities escape to warm, romantic getaways. The latest is the engagement of Boy Meets World alum Rider Strong to his longtime girlfriend Alexandra Barreto. According to E! Online, Rider proposed with a ring he created himself.
Strong and Barreto met on the short-lived 2006 WB comedy Pepper Dennis, in which he played a cameraman and she played the weather girl and nemesis of star Rebecca Romijn. They also had a super-cute bit together in this 2008 Web ad for Barack Obama.
We’ve all been waiting for a different kind of news from Rider — that he’d be joining the cast of Girl Meets World, the Disney Channel spinoff of the beloved ’90s show — but as of November, he said he had no “official” involvement in it. Hey, Alexandra, is there anything you can do to convince him otherwise?

We know second and third marriages often go down without fanfare, but we’re still a bit surprised that Kate Winslet didn’t tell us all about her plans to marry her spectacularly named boyfriend Ned Rocknroll this month. According to E! Online, the Oscar winner’s rep confirmed that the couple wed in New York earlier this month in front of “her two children and a very few friends and family” after getting engaged over the summer. Actually, we shouldn’t take it personally that she forgot to invite us — according to The Sun, even their dads didn’t know the wedding had taken place. Or that’s what they told the tab, anyway. The U.K. paper also reported that Kate’s Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio gave her away.
Winslet and Rocknroll (born Abel Smith) have been dating for a little over a year, ever since they both escaped that dramatic fire at Ned’s Uncle Richard Branson’s private island estate. Yes, it was that time when Kate reportedly carried Branson’s 90-year-old mother, Eve, out of the burning building. Those kind of heroics could win any man’s heart, right? (Though, oops, Kate was there with another guy at the time!)
This is Winslet’s third marriage, after Jim Threapleton and Sam Mendes. Rocknroll works for his uncle’s Virgin Galactic, but no word yet on whether they’ll honeymoon in space.

There are things we loved about 2012, there are things we hated about 2012 and there are things we were ready to hate about 2012, but later came to realize were actually awesome. There’s nothing like being pleasantly surprised by something in pop culture, so we thought we’d give credit where credit is due. Here is our Best of 2012 ..that we were totally prepared to be the worst.
Have you ever heard of the Baader-Meinhof effect? Basically it’s a cognitive illusion in which, once you become aware of something, you notice it everywhere. For us, 2012 meant a year of noticing wigs in every single aspect of our lives. From TV shows like Vampire Diaries to movies like Liz & Dick to meat space like celebrities’ heads, we couldn’t blink without seeing yet another wig. Nor did we want to.
For example, did anyone else see The Hobbit? Critics turned up their nose at the film’s length, but no one breathed a word about all the magnificent dwarf wigs. (It’s better this way. It was a delightful surprise.) While we try to figure out how to obtain a braided-beard-attached-to-a-toupee wig like ol’ Bombur, check out the best of the best of 2012′s wigs. Lindsay Lohan…you did us proud. Did we miss any winners? Please tell us. We genuinely want to know!
