Can You Move From Reality TV To Stardom? (Video)

I

I think we all know by now that most people do reality TV with the hopes of having a career in the entertainment industry. Remember the story claiming Kim Kardashian considers herself more famous than Jennifer Aniston? NeNe Leakes is making inroads with her role on ‘The New Normal.’ Nicole Richie also joined ‘The New Normal’ and has a successful fashion line, as does Lauren Conrad.

Reality TV can pay well, but people would do well to listen to, of all people, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag. They’re a prime example of how reality TV may be a launching pad to something else, but not always. And I’m not sure the loss of privacy is worth it. Would you do reality TV if you had the chance?

How The Queen Found Out About Kate Middleton’s Pregnancy

how the queen found out kate middleton was pregnant

This hyperemesis gravidarum has really caused Kate Middleton problems! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had planned to keep their pregnancy a secret, according to People, but were forced to spill the beans when Kate had to be hospitalized. Apparently the couple hadn’t told anyone they were expecting. Prince William told the Queen, Prince Charles, and Prince Harry before Kate was admitted to the hospital on Monday, and friends only heard the news once the formal announcement went out.

Sources claim this pregnancy was carefully planned. Apparently, Kate and William didn’t want to overshadow Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, nor did they want to disrupt any planned royal tours. One person said:

“I don’t think anything is left to chance. Kate is probably one of the most organized [royal] women we’ve ever known.”

Kate’s baby is already causing quite a stir. I think we can expect a lot from this royal- LOL.

LAPD Concludes Gabriel Aubry Started Fight, Won’t Be Prosecuted

gabriel aubry started fight but will not face charges

I’m not sure why the LAPD felt the need to come out with this now, but they’ve rendered their final “verdict,” according to TMZ. Gabriel Aubry started the Thanksgiving day brawl that led to his arrest, but he won’t face prosecution since Olivier Martinez has said he doesn’t want to pursue criminal charges. LAPD detectives say Gabriel committed two batteries:

As TMZ first reported, as Gabriel deposited Nahla at Halle’s house Olivier walked out and said, “We have to talk.”
Based on interviewing the principles and witnesses, detectives have concluded Gabriel then pushed Olivier (battery #1) and swung at his face, making contact with his shoulder (battery #2).
Cops say at that point, Olivier responded in self defense with 3 quick punches to the face.
What’s more, law enforcement sources tell us they are “concerned” about what they believe are “Gabriel’s ongoing anger issues.”
As one law enforcement source put it, “It seems he’s still having a hard time getting over his break up with Halle.”

I guess Gabriel had better be grateful for the settlement. If he did indeed start the fight, then Olivier’s response will probably help him get his anger under control.

Brandi Glanville Slams LeAnn Rimes As A Stepmom

brandi glanville slams leann rimes' parenting

Looks like the whole “co-parenting” thing isn’t working so well between Brandi Glanville, Eddie Cibrian, and LeAnn Rimes. Brandi sat down with Us Weekly and shared her concerns about LeAnn taking care of her sons.

“I, unfortunately, don’t find her to be stable and I don’t want her around my kids when Eddie’s not there — or at least the nanny, his parents, someone. Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le’s candies and got extremely ill. And Le’s candies are laxatives. It was a big f–king deal for me, and I lost my mind.

“She has one in every purse. Mason found on on the floor and thought it was a Skittle! They don’t keep sugar in the house. He thought he finally found candy.”

OMG! For the record, LeAnn’s rep’s response to these claims was “Just more inaccuracies and half-truths.” If this is true, Brandi needs to head to court! Brandi is also upset about a video LeAnn posted of her sons riding bikes without helmets when Eddie refuses to allow them to be on ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.’

“I just thought it was very hypocritical of LeAnn to post this video… He doesn’t have a helmet on and he’s driving without his training wheels, which he doesn’t even do at my house. These are my children and I don’t want this unstable person around them when she’s alone.”

Eddie’s response was:

“It is absolutely ridiculous that my ex-wife continues to put the personal lives of myself, LeAnn, our sons and my family on public display for the sake of her notoriety. She is fully capable and has the means of contacting myself and LeAnn privately to discuss any matter concerning the children. The fact she chooses not to, should be pretty transparent. And while I do not wish to fuel her ever-igniting fire, there is a breaking point where enough is enough.
“My wife, LeAnn, continues to be a loving and positive influence on the lives of my sons. They are without a doubt lucky to have her. The love they have for their ‘bonus mom’ continues to grow each day as we navigate the changes to our family; a fact that Brandi cannot argue as she herself has stated as much. If my ex-wife truly cared about the welfare of our sons, she would stop the constant bashing on an important person in their lives and focus on productive co-parenting to make our blended family the strongest it can be. And she would do so privately. Let’s see…”

Brandi claims when she attempts to contact either Eddie or LeAnn, there’s no response. I feel badly for the boys caught in the middle of all this.

Eddie Murphy Most Overpaid Actor In Hollywood

forbes top overpaid stars list 2012

Forbes has come out with yet another list. This is their annual Most Overpaid Actor in Hollywood list. Eddie Murphy got top honors with the #1 spot. Eddie’s latest movie, ‘Tower Heist,’ with Ben Stiller, didn’t perform well, only managing to double its $75 million budget. Forbes calculates that for every $1 Eddie earns, only $2.30 is returned at the box office.

Katherine Heigl got the second spot. Forbes reports for every $1 she earns, only $3.20 is returned at the box office. Surprisingly, Reese Witherspoon came in at #3. Also surprising, Sandra Bullock and Jack Black rounded out the top five spots. I admit, I’m a little confused by this reasoning. As long as a celeb isn’t losing money, isn’t that a plus? All of these celebs bring in more than they make. Isn’t that the point? Anywhere, here’s Forbes’ list of the top 9 Most Overpaid Actors in Hollywood.

  1. Eddie Murphy
  2. Katherine Heigl
  3. Reese Witherspoon
  4. Sandra Bullock
  5. Jack Black
  6. Adam Sandler
  7. Denzel Washington
  8. Ben Stiller
  9. Sarah Jessica Parker

Lindsay Lohan’s Accuser & Gloria Allred Go To NY DA’s Office

lindsay lohan accuser visits da office

Uh-oh. This is NOT looking good for Lindsay Lohan. The woman Lindsay allegedly slapped at a NYC nightclub, Tiffany Mitchell, and her new attorney, Gloria Allred, paid a visit to the New York District Attorney’s office. It is thought that Tiffany and Gloria met with someone to discuss the assault case.

Gloria’s a pretty tenacious lawyer. This is not what Lindsay needs right now. How can she even attempt to settle this case (which seems to be what Gloria negotiates best) since the IRS has seized all of her bank accounts? Something tells me the IRS moved in because they realized they better get whatever they could before Lindsay’s attorneys got everything with their legal fees!

Stars In The Nude (Video)

celebs sport nude dresses on red carpet

This video looks at what’s become a red carpet staple: celebs in the nude! Well, they’re not really nude: they’re in flesh-colored dresses. (This is a family-friendly website: we wouldn’t post a video of naked celebs- LOL!) Katy Perry recently wore a nude-toned dress on the red carpet for the 2012 Trevor Live event. Kristen Stewart rocked one as well.

What do you think of this trend of nude-colored clothing? Personally, I’m a fan. It’s something different. How much black can you wear? And if the pop color fade is too hard on your eyes, then the nude-colored dresses are a nice alternative. Check out the many celebs who are wearing them in the video below.
