Be careful if you ever plan a dinner party for 50 Cent and Chelsea Handler. First of all, they might never reply to your beautiful invitations because they don’t technically “know who you are.” Secondly, as suggested by his interview with Vibe, 50 Cent finds Chelsea Handler so confident, he might ruin your hand-made centerpiece by diving over it at her. “Chelsea is confident. I think confidence is the sexiest thing about a person,” Fiddy tells Vibe. “She’s the kind of person that if you’re blessed with the opportunity to hang out with her, you’ll enjoy it. I’m not sure you’ll look at her and actually want to jump over the table and f–k her, but you might. You would leave after talking with her feeling that she is a cool person.” Ok, just let us clear off the place settings first…Fiddy, come on!
How do two people constantly on different world tours ever get to plan a first date? Apparently Miley Cyrus and Kings Of Leon’s Jared Followill are texting, so we might soon find out. Allegedly Cyrus has been sweet on the bassist since meeting him at the MTV Europe Music Awards in 2010. “Miley wants to keep Jared interested … she often sends him coy text messages,” a source close to the band told Hollywood Life. “Coy”? Isn’t that the sweetest way to describe texts between two consenting adults? Let’s just say we’ve all texted someone we’re interested in it, and only about .1% of our communication could be described as “coy.”Ã‚Â And most of those guys weren’t even smoking hot rock stars!
Luckily, the text love seems to be mutual. “So far, he is a big fan of what she has been sending. He thinks she’s very pretty and is excited she’s still flirting with him. Jared loves showing off his texts from Miley,” the source claims. Well, since Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth broke up in November, our girl is free to text, tweet, ping and poke any consenting adult of her choosing. Except lay off the poking, Miley. You don’t want to seem too forward.
We’re personally closer to Kathy Griffin than Isaiah Mustafa on the scale of 1 to…well, Isaiah Mustafa, so we secretly thrilled to hear rumors that the Old Spice Guy and Kathy Griffin might be dating. Unfortunately, life is so rarely like the plot of She’s All That, and today the man himself went out of the way to establish that Isaiah Mustafa is single. Not that he doesn’t love and admire his friend Kathy, just not in that way. “I think she is amazing!” Mustafa gushed about the carrot-top comedian. “I think she’s a force of nature. And she’s on Broadway, so if you get a chance, go check her out!” Looks like we’ll have to find someone else to love our ponytail, glasses and paint-spattered overalls…we mean Kathy’s! Yeah, that’s the ticket…
So if Ms. Griffin isn’t currently using Isaiah’s strong yet forgiving chest as a pillow, which lucky lady is? “I just happen to be a single man!” Mustafa explained. “I like brunettes. I like red-heads or gingers. I like blonds!” BUT WHAT ABOUT PAINT-SPATTERED OVERALLS? Can’t they ever get any love?
We know what you’re thinking: does he leave his hat on? No, sorry, that’s the second thing you think after “Whaaaaaaaaaaa?” Rumors that Susan Sarandon and Judah Friedlander hooked up on the 30 Rock set are no joke, however. A source claimed the two “hooked up” while Sarandon stopped by to film a cameo, though Friedlander says they are just friends. Both avid table tennis fans, Sarandon and Friedlander played a ping pong benefit this fall at Sarandon’s SPiN club. You guys, the man literally wears his heart on his…head. The second that trucker hat says “I Heart Macking It With Susan Sarandon,” then we’ll know.
While Friedlander looks like he has a very intense, intimate relationship with his right hand, Sarandon is rumored to be dating her business partner Jonathan Bircklin. When asked by the New York Post about his relationship with the Thelma & Louise star, Friedlander joked, “You know, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to only go out with Oscar winners.” Later, 30 Rock‘s Frank texted the reported to tell them, “I just can’t say either way what’s going on with me and Susan.” We guess when Judah claims to be the World Champion, the word “lover” is implied. Right? Sorry, terrible mental image.
In case you were getting tired of hearing about A-listers like Jennifer Aniston and James Franco all the time, enjoy a little gossip from the lower rungs of the Hollywood ladder. Rumor has it that Kathy Griffin and the Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa are dating. “They are not boyfriend/girlfriend but they are definitely spending time together and getting to know each other,” a source confirms to US Magazine after the two were seen acting flirty at the Costume Designers Guild Awards on Tuesday. At least Kathy and Isaiah have a lot in common: a love of Mustafa’s abs, superb comedic timing, a love of Mustafa’s arms…
Isaiah also allegedly visited Griffin on the set of Glee, where the comedian was shooting a guest spot. Now we understand why Mustafa denied Neve Campbell in December. “Thanks Valentine!…” Griffin tweeted Valentine’s Day with a photo of red roses, but didn’t specify which brawny spokesman they came from. Look, we know that Mustafa is build like Michelangelo’s David while Kathy was last seen dating Steve Wozniak, but the fact that we didn’t see this coming is exactly what makes us think it might be true. When Griffin was dating Levi Johnston for My Life On The D-List, you’d couldn’t turn a corner in L.A. without seeing those two holding hands and mugging for the camera. Kathy and Isaiah might not get enough love from the rest of industry; let’s see if they can find that love…in each other. And in Mustafa’s abs.
Looks like Ashton Kutcher has always been after an older woman…particularly one who happened to be an international celebrity. Apparently while a teen in Iowa, Ashton Kutcher made a bet he would date Jennifer Aniston at some point. Not knowing that Kutcher would one day be the king of Twitter, his friend took the bet of $1,000. We can only imagine the embarrassment one would feel when Ashton Kutcher, millionaire, shows up at your house to collect this month’s rent in payback. Luckily for that guy, Ashton ended up with a different famous cougar. If only he had thought to cover his bases!
Over the next few years, Kutcher proceeded to get Dude, Where’s My Car?-famous, and in his early twenties met Aniston’s then husband Brad Pitt. So he did what any normal megalomaniac would do: he asked Pitt if he could take his wife out for a pizza. “He looked at me and he’s like, ‘You go for it.’ So I asked her and she turned me down,” he laughs. “But now we’re friends.” Ugh, Jen must be kicking herself now, knowing she blew such a golden opportunity. Think about it, girl: that could be your awesome chiseled bikini body getting retweeted by Ashton, rather than your plain old chiseled bikini body getting retweeted by nobody.
You can probably understand why a woman as stunning as January Jones can’t commit, at least not to her last boyfriend Jason Sudeikis. Which is why the Mad Men actress has come up with the perfect solution to her dating woes: propose to herself. “I think it’s tough to date in general,” January sighed in an interview with Extra!. “But maybe only because I live such a transient lifestyle. Never in one place for too long. Plus, I can’t commit… I don’t have a type, I’m all over the place. It’s me.” Jones quipped, “I’m like Queen Elizabeth. I’m going to marry myself.” We…we can do that? Take that, Mom; now we definitely won’t die a spinster!
While January books a caterer and picks out bridesmaids dresses for her self-wedding, in the meantime she keep on showering with Liam Neeson in her new thriller Unknown. “What you didn’t see was Aiden Quinn was also in the shower with us…they would switch him out. It was very awkward,” Jones laughs. “They were buddies so they were sort of high-fiving each other…that’s the most nude I’ve been in a film.” As long as it’s only for the movie, we guess January can’t get mad at herself for cheating. Girl better put a ring on it soon though, or January is going to find someone who really appreciates her. For example, any other person on the planet.
Said the source, “Scarlett first reached out to Sean when she was planning to visit Haiti with Oxfam. She knew Sean was living there in a tent and turned to him for advice.” Well, if a girl asks a fella about doing charity work in Haiti, that’s as good as a promise ring! “Scarlett’s smitten with him,” the insider claimed. We guess no one told the smitten kitten herself that the two were canoodling, seeing as how Johansson’s rep denies she’s dating Penn. “There is no truth to this at all,” ScarJo’s rep scoffed. Seems like every time Scarlett so much as eats a sandwich with a male friend, new rumors crop up. Either that, or she’s going to need a chore wheel on the fridge to keep track of all of her innumerable boyfriends.
Nothing makes us want to push our glasses to the end of our noses and say “Girrrrrl” in a warning tone like news that Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal were spotted at dinner together. The pair were sighted in Nashville Wednesday night, dining at Bound’ry, a spot reportedly close to Swift’s apartment. “They did eat. They were cordial to one another, but not affectionate,” an eyewitness claims. “There was no holding hands, but they seemed happy together. They sat next to the fireplace just chatting away.” Hopefully this is just Taylor’s way of getting closure/extra song material, or else girl is going to end up with a death metal album by the end of this drama. Oh wait…do you think that’s what happened to Taylor Momsen?
Oh, girrrrrrrrrrrrrrl. It’s only three days into the new year and we already have a favorite rumor of 2011, now that Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock dating rumors are making the rounds. Reportedly, with Reynolds almost single and/or ready to mingle, the actor has been spending some quality face time — including attending a costume party together on New Year’s Eve — with his Proposal co-star Bullock. “They are both newly single and leaning on each other for support,” a source claims. “Who knows what will happen in the future, but any rumors of them being together and splitting up Ryan’s marriage to Scarlett are false.” Please, Sandra seems like the last person on the planet who would be behind the cheating rumors between Reynolds and Johansson. As for Ryan, what better why to get over your ex than in arms of a beautiful woman…who will literally break your legs if she gets cheated on again?
Before we get too excited and start calling our moms about the new couple, Bullock and Reynolds are allegedly enjoying each other’s company, but are not officially together…yet. “Sandra loves Ryan. They became very good friends when they filmed The Proposal, but they are not a couple, at least not yet. They love spending quality time together,” the source also said. As long as Scarlett doesn’t complete the swap by getting with Jesse James, we are totally in favor of this love match. And since Johansson doesn’t seem completely insane, we doubt that’ll be a problem. [Photo: Getty Images]
