So, really, all that excitement about Mark Sanchez and Eva Longoria dating, and they’re already done? It feels like we just posted the news about their relationship. Well, we talked about it a little over a month ago, but we thought they were in the honeymoon period and had some mileage left in them. Eva even told her pal Mario Lopez on Extra, “No, Mark and I are, you know, fine. We’re happy just dating.” But a source tells People that the handsome New York Jets quarterback and his lovely lady have decided to call it quits, revealing, “Eva and Mark split amicably and remain friends. There is no drama.” To make it clear that this is no rumor, Sanchez’s spokesperson confirmed the split to US Weekly, saying, “Mark adores and respects Eva. It really was about scheduling more than anything else. They will remain close friends.” And it looks like the same source who spoke to People also gabbed to US Weekly, adding, “There was no drama. They just have completely different schedules and lifestyles. He likes to go out and have fun. She’s more focused on her career and her philanthropic work.” Who here thinks the “source” is from Longoria’s camp? We do! Oh well, there’s nothing wrong with a spot of summer lovin’. Next?
Is it us, or are people getting more creative with the insane lawsuits they file against celebrities? We’re sure famous people have to fight unsubstantiated suits all the time, but lately these lawsuits have been elevated to an art form. Remember that amazing Kim Kardashian/Conrad Murray/Bernie Madoff mash-up lawsuit from this summer? Just today we got word that a lawsuit was filed against Justin Bieber for allegedly, um, stealing someone’s credit card to purchase a penis enlargement. Even with the knowledge that there is no way Justin needs to steal money for a penis enlargement (or anything else, for that matter), the suit is only as bizarre as the lawsuit Rihanna had filed against her today, which claims she allegedly, um, gave Chris Brown herpes. A fake Chris Brown. Even odder still, these two bizarre lawsuits have a lot in common. So much in common, in fact, that it’s genuinely hard to say which one is more insane. Let’s try to parse it out, shall we?
Mouse boy! Between that denim shirt and those gawky front teeth, 12-year-old Ryan Gosling, “Canada’s only official Mousketeer,” just shoved the fact it’s Ryan Reynolds‘ birthday clean out of our brains. Hope you had a great day up until right now, Rey! “I hit the roof. It was so funny,” Gosling told CTV’s Canada AM about his being cast in Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club in that adorably thick Canadian accent. Aside from the squee-worthy snippets of him playing the drums and dancing a spastic elbow-centric dance, Ryan definitely handles himself like a champ: cracking jokes about Florida, explaining what a tutor is and hoping Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson will stop by the show for a cameo. “That’s basically what the show’s aboot,” Baby Gosling smiles. Aboooot! Ryan Reynolds, who? Thank god Blake Lively didn’t see this clip a few weeks ago. She would have hopped on a plane…or a time machine.
Here comes a big score for Team Breezy. Rihanna and Chris Brown took their romance public on Saturday night as they attended the Beverly Hills launch party of Brown’s new fan website Qubeey. The two were caught getting cozy in a booth at the Playhouse nightclub, and this time it’s on camera!
According to witnesses, Chris was quite the Prince Charming during his private time with Riri. “He made her feel like a princess just by the little things he was doing,” one guest told Hollywood Life. ” He opened doors, pulled out her chair, you know, being charming Chris. He was being a gentleman and it was cute. They had a few kisses and some drinks…” Although they seemed very affectionate towards each other, Rihanna didn’t want their controversial reunion to steal headlines and tried to downplay her presence. “She loves him and anything she can do to support him she will. She wants to be by his side and show up for him and last night she did.”
You GUYS. We don’t know why this made our day but it really, really did. Page Sixhas reported that sources are whispering about Ashley Benson dating James Franco! Please tell us this blew your mind too? Of course it did. She’s a Pretty Little Liar and he’s … well … he’s James Franco of the Franco-freaky weird celluloid moments and facial scruff. And she’s Ashley Benson of vanilla perky perfectitude. Yes, she inspired us to make up a new word. Apparently the two have been spotted together on numerous occasions look very much like a couple. Of the sightings enumerated, we have Ashley and James sitting in a tree busted hanging out together in Washington Square Park earlier this month. Last week saw them walking hand-in-hand at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride — and you know ain’t nothing more romantic that that, right? One source reveals, “They have been seeing each other for a little over a month, but things are going well.” While this sounds like the Franco-Benson union has been happening quite swimmingly, sadly their spokespeople have not been answering their calls, so we have t put it in the rumor department. But seriously — it’s a rumor we love!
Is it just us, or are you also just plain exhausted with the Lohan family drama? It’s something new every week and we’re getting sick of it. They just got out of that whole Dina-did-she-or-didn’t-she-do-cocaine Lohan mess, with Lindsay pretty much disowning dad Michael. He obviously didn’t like that because he started the weekend off by staging an “intervention” on Lindsay. By that we mean he pretty much showed up at her house and refused to leave until she committed to going to a treatment center to get help. TMZ reports that Michael told them she’s surrounded by ”a bunch of alcoholics and drug addicts.” Of course the cops showed up because someone called them due to Michael’s trespassing. And this may be a case of the pot calling the kettle black, but Dina’s also tired of Michael, telling TMZ, “This sole act by my ex was not an intervention nor was this extreme antic sanctioned by any member of Lindsay’s family or her professional team of handlers. It’s all about her father obsessed with making a name for himself in the news once again. It’s sad and I hope he stops masquerading as her father in public and starts acting like one in private.”
Michael himself is claiming that Lindsay’s whole management team — Evan Hainey (LiLo’s manager) Dave Feldman (entertainment lawyer) and Shawn Holley (defence lawyer) — are on board with this stunt of his. He’s also been saying that there have been emails circulating between all of them about Lindsay’s destructive behavior, which apparently includes, “drinking between a bottle and a bottle and a half of vodka per day. I have seen the empty bottles and even cocaine in her room at Chateau.” TMZ says they’ve seen some of the text messages between the group which date October 19th, which agree to Michael trying to … intervene.
He didn’t manage getting through to her, as the police showed up and now Lindsay wants an “order of protection” against him. But that’s not all, guys. Michael is a ball that keeps on rollin’ because the latest update is that he plans to go to court to try and get conservatorship for Lindz, a la Britney Spears and the first order of business will be getting her into rehab. Look … we don’t doubt that Lindsay is in trouble. It’s as plain as day that she’s been on a spiral for years. We just wished Michael would be a better role model and more sincere about actually help her, instead of helping himself. Because he isn’t exactly winning Father of the Year anytime soon. We always get the feeling he’s out to be famous, instead of being there for his famous daughter. And that’s just a shame.
Okay, we don’t actually know if they are hyphenating their names or not. But how cute would that be, right? Let us live vicariously through their beautiful life choices! After months, nay, years of anticipation, People reports that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have finally wed in a secret ceremony in southern Italy. (One might argue it’s not that secret if we are typing this right now, but that would be super guache.) “It’s great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends,” Biel and Timberlake said in a statement. People plans to publish photos of the couple’s nuptials in their issue next Wednesday, and we are already itching to see Jessica’s wedding dress. You just know that thing is going to be sleek. No fifty foot train for this lady!
The couple has been dating for the better part of five years, but we knew the end was nigh when Justin was spotted at his bachelor party in Last Vegas at the end of September. So…how long do we have to wait before forecasting what great butts their children will have? Oh, never because that’s disgusting? Cool, cool. Congrats, you two!
Ugh, why can’t Sam Lutfi just disappear off the face of the planet? Britney Spears‘ ex-manager-slash-whatever was in court today to kick off his defamation suit against the singer’s family. The same one he was trying to get Britney to testify against the Spears at, specifically against her mom, Lynne Spears. Unfortunately, he’s come armed and ready to open a huge can of worms and make all sorts of horrible allegations, which is exactly what his lawyer, Joseph Schleimer, did on his behalf. He told the jury, and this is the one we really hate, that Brit was on amphetamines which is what led to the major mental breakdown she had a couple years of ago. The infamous one, where she shaved her head. Schleimer said, “She liked to use amphetamines. Most everything that went wrong was because of this drug.” Of course, it was added that Lufti was the one who tried to save her and get her off the drugs. The mud slinging got even worse after that, with Lutfi’s team also alleging that Britney, other than amphetamines, also used a lot of crystal meth, and that she shaved her hair off because she was paranoid that it contained traces of the drugs. Lastly, Team Lutfi says she was on a hell of a lot of amphetamines the day all hell broke loose and she had to be put in a psych hold. So far, these are pretty nasty accusations, but we weren’t expecting this to be civilized. And we hope to hell that Lutfi’s just up to his usual rumor-mongering, trouble-starting self. Britney’s doing really well these days and being dragged into a nasty court battle is not good for anyone. Besides, these heavy drug using rumors could wreck havoc in her personal life.
TMZ has already proven that Lutfi is full of BS about shaving her head because of the drugs. They’ve unearthed the video you can see above taken two years ago with him on camera saying that shaving her hair off “was a cool thing … somebody expressing their artistic side. I think she was just expressing her independence and her freedom … there’s nothing wrong with Britney. She’s awesome.” He looks shifty even then. We’re waiting on the Spears defense next, but we have a feeling this may crop up!
Here’s a question: if you dated a singer and they later wrote a wistful, romantic song about you, would you be angry? Okay, now what if the song was about what a total douche bag you were? Also, you’re famous too? Makes a huge difference, right? Good thing the Jonas Brothers‘ “Wedding Bells” was an example of the former, or else we doubt Miley Cyrus would be quite so gracious about the fact it concerns her former relationship with Nick Jonas. “I don’t know anyone else who is getting married,” the singer pointed out to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show today, saying it’s “pretty blatant” the tune is about her impending marriage to Liam Hemsworth. Oh man, this is like Taylor Swift and John Mayer all over again. Except fortunately, this time no one has to be John Mayer!
“So, you can’t ever hate on someone for writing about something you’ve been through,” mused an extremely kind Cyrus. “I think that you kind of get a fair warning when you date an artist and someone that’s a writer—when you’re going through things that you’re going to end up hearing about it on the radio.” Personally, we find the idea of artists using their famous relationships for material fascinating. Like, Nick (and Taylor) must have known their exes would at least suspect they were crooning about them. What did they think the reception would be? Did they hope Miley and John would immediately break up with their significant others and come beg for forgiveness? Yikes, now we just bummed ourselves out. We’ll just go ahead and listen to these old Pink songs to cheer ourselves up…oh god, every single one of these are all about Corey Hart!
We were pretty bummed last week to learn that former Happy Days star Erin Moran was not exactly having happy days. The 52-year old is currently homeless in Indiana, bouncing between cheap hotels with her husband Steve Fleischmann. We cursed the fates for being so cruel to Erin, and wished that somebody would do something to help her. And then, like a hero on a horseback, entered…The Fonz.
Erin’s one-time co-star Henry Winkler is reportedly working to secure the struggling actress actress a part on the new series of Arrested Development. The series is produced (and narrated) by her ex-TV brother Ron Howard, so it can’t be that hard, right? “Henry is absolutely shattered over what’s become of Erin,” a friend told the National Enquirer. “He desperately wants to help get back back on her feet.” Winkler plays the Bluth family lawyer Barry Zuckerkorn on the cult TV show. And yes, he’s very good.
Moran’s career has essentially bottomed out since her last major role in the Happy Days spinoff Joanie Loves Chachi back in 1983. She had a few TV guest spots, and an appearance on VH1′s own Celebrity Fit Club in 2008. Her house went into foreclosure in 2010, and over the summer she was forced out of her mother’s trailer. We know it could just be a rumor, but we like to think that The Fonz looks after his own. And we know that’s a little cornball.
