We fully credit our former intern Tionah Lee with a new theory that kind of blows our minds after looking at side-by-side photos like the ones above: “I’ve come to the conclusion that 1D’s Harry Styles and American Horror Story’s Evan Peters are long lost brothers,” she tweeted last night. Just look at their noses, eyebrows, and mouths! This is almost as uncanny as that photo of George Clooney and Abraham Lincoln, isn’t it? So now we are just going to float this out there and see if people start reporting it as true. That’s how facts work these days.
Speaking of rumors, Perez Hilton came up with a wild one today, too: that the One Direction singer is Taylor Swift’s new boyfriend. And this is based on about as much factual info as the Evan Peters theory. First, Styles told Cosmopolitan UK that he’s got his eye on someone special, and Perez notes, “Now, Harry has been rockin’ a paper airplane necklace. But all of a sudden (okay, around the same time his Cosmo UK interview hit), the now-single Swifty is seen wearing one too.” Read more…
Oh good, we can stop picturing Kirstie Alley and John Travolta having hot Scientologist sex now. Oh, wait, that image is already burned into our heads forever, even though Alley says it never happened. And actually, she never DID say it happened, even though the second we all saw quotes about her Look Who’s Talking co-star being the “greatest love” of her life, that’s what we assumed. Actually, she told Jimmy Kimmel last night, their relationship was never sexual, nor was her loving friendship with Patrick Swayze.
“Can I just clarify? They were not sexual affairs,” she said. “I didn’t say the word affair ever. … John Travolta is and has remained one of my best friends for almost 25, 26 years — before he was married, but I was married. But I fell in love with him.”
Actually, she said the feeling was mutual, and it evolved into a “beautiful friendship” between her, John and his wife, Kelly Preston. She even got their blessing to write about all this in her book (the reason she’s doing all these weird interviews), The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine al Dente).
What’s really interesting, however, is that she also basically confirms everything us regular people assume about every single on-screen couple: that it’s impossible for them not to fall in love IRL. Read more…
Oh, did you guys ever notice that Academy Award-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence is clinically obese? Oh no, because only a total moron would think that? Clearly you are not a film executive! “I eat like a caveman, I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors,” the Hunger Games star says in her new Elle interview. “In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress, I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.” While some people might take umbrage with a thin, smoking hot 22-year-old claiming to be obese by anyone‘s definition of the word, we think it’s great. It’s not only great, in fact. It’s necessary.
You might recall back in April, when some critics were ragging on Jen’s size as unbelievably large and well-fed for a Panem resident. Lawrence allegedly scoffed it off, but apparently this has become a running theme in her rise to stardom. Personally, we’re glad Jennifer Lawrence has been consistently real with us with regards to how Hollywood perceives her…because it reminds us how totally divorced from reality Hollywood standards can be. If conventionally thin and attractive Jennifer Lawrence is obese, then clearly it’s the system that’s screwed up, not any one individual’s weight. If Jennifer Lawrence is “obese,” then the center cannot hold, people!
Modern Family’s Ariel Winter and her older sister, Shanelle Gray
We’re still shuddering over the news from yesterday that 14-year-old Modern Family cutie Ariel Winter was removed from her mother’s home and placed under her older sister’s guardianship. Court papers revealed allegations that Chris (a.k.a. Crystal) Workman subjected Winter to “ongoing physical abuse (slapping, hitting, pushing) and emotional abuse (vile name-calling, personal insults about minor and minor’s weight, attempts to ‘sexualize’ minor, deprivation of food, etc.) for an extended period of time.”
Last night, Workman came forward to deny the allegations. “It’s all untrue, it’s all untrue,” she told People. “I have my doctor’s letter that my daughter’s never been abused. … I have stylists’ letters that she’s never been abused.” OK, those are kind of weird sources, but we guess a stylist would see the actress up close on a regular basis?
Not helping Workman’s case is the fact that Ariel’s sister, actress Shanelle Gray, was also removed from her mother’s home after similar allegations came to light 20 years ago. But the girls’ brother says the claims were false on both occasions. “The allegations made 20 years ago are not true and the ones today are not true,” Jimmy Workman told Us Weekly. “This is a mother who does everything for her kids. Chris misses Ariel and wants her to come home.”
We hope this all gets settled soon, because this sweet kid seems like she’s got a good head on her shoulders, despite all the turmoil her home life appears to be. And look how adorbs she and her sister are together in the photo above!
Aaaaand now we’re crying. If you’re like us and love the Modern Family cast like they were your own absurd, amazing in-laws, you’ll be even more horrified than most to learn that Ariel Winter, a.k.a. sardonic middle child Alex Dunphy, has allegedly been removed from her home due to allegations of parental abuse. TMZ reports that Winters, currently 14, was removed by a judge after a guardianship hearing in October revealed allegations of physical and emotional abuse on the part of Ariel’s mother Crystal Workman. Actually, even if you haven’t seen Modern Family, we’re betting everyone will be equally saddened by this story. Everyone in the world.
As if that wasn’t bad enough (and it definitely was), Ariel’s older sister Shanelle Gray was removed from her mother’s house two years ago after similar allegations of abuse were reported to the Department of Children and Family Services. Crystal Workman was allegedly ordered to stay 100 yards from Ariel, who is currently living with sister Shanelle. A hearing has been set up for November 20, after which Ariel will hopefully be able to settle in to a home life that’s more like her sitcom, and less like the emotional version of American Horror Story.
We don’t know about you, but we were fully focused on last night’s election tallies. As was, we noted, most of America. Our Twitter feed scrolled faster than ever before, as the country collectively chattered about the impending results. Meanwhile, smack in the middle of all the politics, comes a tweet from The Hollywood Reporter: “@KirstieAlley Fell in Love With Patrick Swayze, John Travolta While Married to Parker Stevenson.” WHAAAAAAT?! Hold the polls, America, Kirstie Alley is (in her very own special way) is deciding that now is the time to share with the world that John Travolta is not gay. Mind you, this is the same night that Americans voted for legalizing gay marriage in Maine:
“I know John. With all my heart and soul, he’s not gay,” says Alley, who is a devoted Scientologist, along with Travolta. “I think it’s some weird way, in Hollywood, if someone gets big enough and famous enough, and they’re not out doing drugs and they’re not womanizing, what do you say about them?”
True, Travolta has not been womanizing. But he has allegedly been doing the opposite of womanizing (manizing?), per reports that he grabbed the junk of a masseuse back in May. Well, it’s up to you decide if you believe this and if you’re going to buy Kirstie’s new book, The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine al Dente), but just imagine if these two had actually shacked up in real life! It’s a dream lost, along with the dream that we’d give birth to a child with the voice of Bruce Willis.
Apparently Bobbi Kristina was trying to pull into a spot besides Nick’s car and just…really messed it up big time. She must have given it a pretty good whack, because reports say that even the air bags deployed! According to TMZ alcohol did not play a part in the fender bender; the more innocent explanation is that these two are just really bad at driving. “Some great days can turn sour quick,” she posted to her twitter soon after. “Take advantage of your happiness. (: Xxxo.” Hang in there, Bobbi Kristina, and keep both hands on the wheel!
It makes perfect sense. How could you not think you’ve met the love of your life when you’re wearing matching mermaid and captain costumes out in public? If your man is willing to be the stormtrooper to your Princess Leia (what?) then you know you’ve got some serious commitment right there. This is the essence of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. They’re perfectly matched in bling, during dress-up and in monochrome and there’s not a sex tape in the world that could come between them. Of course Kim would be thinking about them spending the rest of their (television) days together. There’s only one problem: Kim’s still “married, technically” to Kris Humphries as she revealed to Us Weekly. Fail. But a girl can dream, right? That’s exactly what she’s doing, continuing with, “I feel more confident and more wise after this year. It’s like you get to a place and you just know what you want.” That thing she wants would be Kanye, who a source says is “actually being very patient.” Kim, according to the report, is already on the road to weddingville, something she sees happening in the future, as the “close confidant” adds, “Kim thinks they’ll get engaged and try for a baby once the divorce is final.” But, because of the hoopla surrounding her previous marriages and shenanigans in general, she’s taking the cautious route. “After the backlash from ending her 72-day marriage with Kris, Kim would never get engaged until everything was properly handled. There are no wedding plans, period. She and Kanye are taking their time. That’s the truth,” says the source. We give them a year, tops, before they head down the aisle. It’s most likely Kim’s already got a wedding gown on hold … just in case.
We all knew Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson would be bombarded with questions about cheating and/or their relationship during the lead-up to next week’s Breaking Dawn Part 2. We just didn’t figure Taylor Lautner would have to field queries about them, too. (He’s the third member of their love triangle in the movies, not real life, people!) Obviously Taylor’s publicist anticipated he’d be grilled about “The Rupert Sanders Incident,” because this kid is ducking and weaving like a pro. “To be honest, I’ve never been involved in any of those situations, so I don’t know,” Taylor told Cosmowhen asked about cheating. “It would be just a guess and a shot in the dark, and I don’t want to give that if I haven’t even been there myself.” Can anyone even summarize what he meant by that sentence? No? Haha, well done Taylor!
Is this a case like when Miley Cyrus was swimming with a dude — who turned out to be her assistant Cheyne Thomas — and the internet concluded she was cheating? Everyone’s cheating as far as the webz is concerned! That applies to her fiance, Liam Hemsworth, as well now, who RadarOnline seems to think is cheating on Miley. In a rumor that upsets us, sources told the site that Mr. H’worth was spotted canoodling, or getting “very cozy”, as they put it, with a mystery blond at a Samsung Galaxy Note II party in Beverly Hills late last month. Because a hot phone makes you want to get down? Seriously? One source said, “Liam was in the corner of the back tent with a blond and they were getting very cozy. It definitely looked like they were behaving in a way that was more than just friendly. His friend/handler was trying to keep people away and allow Liam and his ‘friend’ some privacy but Liam didn’t seem to be that worried about it.” We’re calling BS on this one. People can stay faithful, y’know. And mystery blond doesn’t automatically translate into mystery date so the interwebz can chill.
