Who is out there making fun of Rebel Wilson and what is wrong with you? Do people honestly think they’re “adding to the conversation” by calling the Pitch Perfect star “morbidly obese” on the Internet? According to Rebel’s Jenny Craig Australia campaign, it’s comments like those that compelled her start losing weight. “Of course I go on the internet all the time and look up what people say about you,” Rebel says in one of her videos. “One person wrote, ‘What’s her problem? Besides her morbid obesity?’ I read that and I was like…ugh. Like, it is really hurtful. When you read comments like that you think, ‘This is something I can fix. So I should probably fix it.’” Coincidentally, they’re also comments that make us want to shut down the internet and start civilization all over again from scratch. Who’s with us?
In her video journal for the weight loss company, the Bridesmaids actress reveals how she’s lost over 33 pounds, but hopes to drop much more. “I guess with being this size you kind of put yourself into the friend zone. You never think anyone will be attracted to you at this weight,” she admits. “So you don’t really go out.” So…filled…with…empathy…and…rage…In all honesty, we’re kind of torn about Rebel’s weight loss campaign. On one hand, it’s her life and her body. On the other hand, we want to imagine Rebel hanging out in that bikini pube shirt from the MTV VMAS 24/7, just laughing and not giving an eff what anyone thinks. On the other other hand (which we realize is actually the first hand again), we hope Rebel gets everything she wants in life, including never having to need “elasticized pants.” Just don’t wear pants at all, girl! We will support you in this!

According to Nicki Minaj‘s interview with Perez Hilton this week, she’s “still considering” her reality TV options, but all signs point to some Nicki-based reality programming coming our way soon. Explained Minaj,“I will say that I find the more people see, is the more they understand, and then it’s the more they like you. When you pull them in your world, they see you as a real person. I’m not running away from it anymore.” Good to hear, because according to Deadline, Nicki is already shooting for E! “The plan is to do specials with her, not a whole series,” a source claims, reporting that the “Pound The Alarm” star will be making three specials to air this fall. Honestly, we’re torn about the whole idea. On one hand…of course. These specials will obviously be a delight. On the other hand, we’re sort of reluctant to let our bubblegum hip-hop realness get in our reality TV, and vice versa. At least without a lot of contemplation first.
President Obama, we’re almost certain you didn’t step in and fire Amanda Bynes‘ arresting officer like she beseeched you back in June; we imagine we all would have heard about it. Luckily for you, now there’s a brand-new opportunity to help a girl out. All you have to do is fire the judge, lawyers, bailiffs and police officers involved with Amanda Bynes’ upcoming trial, if she ever ends up having to go to court. Easy peasy! The All That star must be pretty confident you’re going to pull through for her, seeing as how she just filed a not guilty plea for her two counts of hit-and-run. Think about it: what’s the point of getting another term if you aren’t going to do personal favors for former child stars? That would be our one and only reason to ever run for office!
The Los Angeles City Attorney filed charges against Bynes back on Septemer 5, and the actress is due back in court October 19. Uh, does everyone remember the fact that one of Amanda’s hit-and-run charges stems from an incident where she sideswiped a police car? Obama, maybe could you loan Amanda one of those secret government time machines to journey back and call a cab instead? Then travel further back and prevent ancient man from inventing alcohol? Girl still has a DUI charge to deal with, and it would be a big help if the space-time continuum could take care of that one for her.

Brain exploding! Right now, the interwebz is going bananas over this alleged Chris Brown and Nicole Scherzinger alleged hook-up. X17Online broke the story with photographs of the two at the Supperclub in L.A. with a source adding, “They were dancing close for a while and being all touchy-feely and finally Chris leaned into her. She put her head on his shoulder and they started kissing! I couldn’t believe Chris was being so obvious about it!” The problem is that the photographs are slightly grainy and while they do look like there’s some intimate action, we’re not sure if they were kissing or just talking really closely to each other. Yes, we know what you’re thinking. What about the supposed Rihanna reunion right? The singer just tweeted support for her ex’s court hearing, and supposedly offered to defend Brown at a hearing in November that will determine whether or not her violated his parole. Plus, there was that maybe kiss at the VMAs. Hell, we’ve been expecting Ri-Ri and Brown to go public at any moment. So how did this apparent Nicole and Chris thing happen? For the most part, Nicole’s spokesperson is denying the hookup, saying, “There is absolutely no truth to the ridiculous story regarding Nicole and Chris Brown. The photos that have surfaced are old friends who were trying to talk at a very loud club. I guarantee there will be no photos of them kissing. This is a non-story. ” Brown’s people have also stated, “No story here. They were not kissing. They are friends, have been for years and they were talking at a club with loud music playing.” But then, that’s what they would say. And there are these pictures. So — what do you think? Makeout or fake out?

When we think about whether NeNe Leakes should leave Real Housewives of Atlanta now that she’s on The New Normal, we feel like a parent whose kid wants to go to college 3,000 miles away. On one hand, NeNe has already made “The Leap” that most reality stars dream of making. She’s costarring on Ryan Murphy’s new show, guests on Glee from time to time and, even more importantly, is generally perceived to be vivacious and fun rather than…you know…completely deranged like some other Housewives that come to mind. At this point, NeNe’s career is in no need another glass of white wine to the face. On the other hand…what about us? The woman was made for reality TV! What about our unscripted NeNe needs?
Luckily for us, we won’t have to give up a NeNe-packed RHOA just yet. “I haven’t decided, but I will tell you this: I’m very loyal to Bravo, and I will continue to do both shows for as long as my schedule allows it,” Leakes revealed on Big Morning Buzz Live this morning, when discussing whether this season of Housewives is her last. “When you are a good person, good things happen for you,” she laughed. Well, we’re good people…so good things will happen to us….ERGO NeNe Leakes will stay on RHOA until the sun burns out! Hurray! Oh, or she could get her own daytime talk show. We’d be more than okay with that too.
Well you guys, it looks like Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are co-habitating again…if they ever weren’t cohabitating to begin with. Robsten certainly has a long, messy, tear-soaked road ahead of them if they want to sort out their relationship issues, but as of today, it looks like they’re planning to join the other (extremely, extremely lucky) celeb couples who weathered a cheating scandal. Good luck, you two! In case you’re interested, there’s probably more than a few lessons to be learned from…
Wise folks always say: love is strange. Wonderful, beautiful and incredible, obviously. But also strange, messy, and complicated. Sometimes it makes you do things that seem weird to the outside world. This should not come as news. So bearing in mind that law of the universe, we’re pass along the news that Rihanna is reportedly offering to defend Chris Brown in a court hearing to decide whether or not he has violated his parole. We reported yesterday that Brown got him some hot water by failing a drug test, but according to RadarOnline Riri wants to ask Judge Patricia Schnegg to not consider it a violation of his probation.
“Rihanna has spoken to Chris since his progress reporting hearing on Monday afternoon and offered her continued support,” the source says. Rihanna has already taken to twitter to send good vibes his way, but the insider says that she’s willing to go much further. “Rihanna told Chris she would go to court on November 1 for his court appearance and tell Judge Patricia Schnegg that she shouldn’t set a hearing to decide if he violated terms of his probation because he has accepted responsibility for his actions and has apologized to RiRi on multiple occasions.” If recent rumors are to be believed, Rihanna has more than forgiven him, and may even be working towards rekindling their romance. Or not. But regardless of their relationship status, some folks feel that they’re far too close for comfort.
Perhaps Chelsea Handler isn’t over 50 Cent. It’s the only reason we can come up with that she’s still talking about him all while blaming Ciara for breaking up their
friends with benefit situation relationship. Who knew an ex could breakup a, uh, non-existence relationship? Now that Ciara‘s promoting her forthcoming album One Woman Army she hit up Big Boy’s Neighborhood show on Power 106 to discuss the new single “Sorry.” What Big Boy really wanted the tea on how Cici felt about Chelsea’s accusation. And, well, Cici kept it cute … although we secretly wish she hadn’t. Read more…
Kanye West might be pretty bummed out about his sex tape with a Kim Kardashian look-alike getting leaked to the world last week. In fact, there are some reports that he’s been moved to tears. But amazingly, the people who are the least freaked out by the whole thing are Kim’s family! According to a report from RadarOnline, the Kardashian’s think that Yeezy’s tape is “no big deal.” That’s cool, but it has to make Thanksgiving just a little bit awkward, right?
“All of the Kardashians love Kanye and they have told him that they don’t care that the report about his sex tape came out,” the source says. “Kris and both Khloe and Kourtney told Kanye that this isn’t anything to worry about, and since they dealt with Kim’s tape it is no big deal.” In fact, they’re even laughing at the fact that the girl looks so much like Kim. “They all joked that Kanye has a type!” HAHAHAHAHA…oh wait, that’s kind of weird.
Call us suspicious, but we have a pet theory about the mysterious appearance of this tape and the Kardashian’s Klan’s uber-chill reaction to it. Read more…
It looks like Rihanna and Chris Brown have had a rough couple of days, although in very different ways. Chris appeared in court yesterday for a probation progress hearing stemming from his 2009 felony battery conviction. According to TMZ, the singer failed his mandatory drug test, which put his probation status as risk of being revoked. Lucky for him the judge cut him a break, as long as he stayed “mindful” of the law. But still, that wasn’t the most extraordinary act of kindness of the day. Rihanna sent him a good luck tweet before the hearing, sending positive vibes his way.
“I’m praying for you and wishing u the best today!” she said. Chris responded with a simple “Thank u so much,” but sources say that Riri’s support made his day. “That was real cool of Rihanna showing the homie some love before he went in [to court.] I’m sure that made him happy,” an insider told HollywoodLife. “You know, Rihanna be really looking out for his a–, man. She’s so down. Just being down and real and true and loving. He need that right now.” Following news of Chris’ drug test troubles, Rihanna appeared to send him another supportive tweet. “Praying for you baby, my best wishes are with you today! Remember that whatever God does in our lives, it is WELL DONE!!! #1Love.” Although it doesn’t mention him by name, he definitely seems to be directed at him. Damn, if forgiveness is a virtue, then Riri’s got it in every shade!
