Barbara Walters “Shaded” The Singer

Katy Parry Dines Out At Nobu In London



Things are looking up for Katy Perry these days, but a couple of years ago, she had A LOT going on. In these pictures Katy was headed out for a relaxed dinner at Nobu, but things weren’t always so calm with her. The ‘Roar‘ singer opened up to Billboard about how things didn’t get off to such a great start in another interview with Barbara Walters in 2011. Katy confided:

“I shouldn’t have done the interview: I was playing Madison Square Garden that same night, and I knew that the end of my marriage was coming. I was just exhausted and stressed. I’d prepped everyone that I was running late, but Barbara showed up at the original time anyway.
“When I got there, I apologized immediately, but then she said to me, ‘You know, I’ve only ever waited for one other person this long, and you know who that person was? Judy Garland. You know how she turned out, right?’
“I was like, ‘Oh, snap! Yes, b*tch!’ I think it’s the coolest thing that Barbara Walters shaded me. I just couldn’t tell her as we were sitting down for a mega-interview, ‘Hey, my marriage is falling apart. Give me a break.'”

That is a tough situation to be in! Maybe Barbara will hear about Katy’s Billboard interview and understand.

Appears in Court for DUI Charges



Well, the drama just keeps unfolding with Lindsay Lohan’s mom, Dina Lohan. The 50-year-old was arrested two weeks ago on drunk driving charges on Long Island, New York not far from where Lindsay and her three siblings grew up.

As we reported earlier this month, she was catapulting her white BMW at 77 in a 55 mph speed zone and her BAC was clocked at .20, more than twice the legal limit. However, she has entered a plea of not guilty. Her defense attorney says: “Dina Lohan is painfully mindful of the gravity of her arrest for driving while intoxicated. I am confident that the district attorney’s office and the judicial system will temper justice with mercy.”

Apparently, Dina showed in court with only her mother, Ann Sullivan, in tow. Lohan was released without bail but her driver’s license is suspended. It’s too bad all of this is happening just as Linsday seems to be making an earnest attempt at getting her life back in order. Let’s just hope this family, that’s been rattled with struggles, can get to a better place.

Alicia & Her Husband Party At Wrong House!

55th Annual GRAMMY Awards



Oops! Alicia Keys and her husband, Swizz Beatz, are renting a house in the Hamptons. Sounds like they aren’t too familiar with their place, or Alicia and co. were having a really good time ;-) . A Hampton resident woke up to hear people having fun downstairs. She thought she knew who the party people were so didn’t think anything of going downstairs to say hi. An insider told Page Six:

“There was a woman upstairs in the bedroom at the house, and she heard noises downstairs. The woman’s daughter, a recent college grad, and her friends had been ‘pregaming’ earlier in the night before going out, so she assumed that the noise was that they’d all returned home.”
Instead she found “a number of strangers, men and women, in her kitchen. She was startled.
“At first she was a little freaked out, but it turned out it was Swizz and Alicia and their entourage. They’d rented a house nearby.”

OMG! Can you imagine going downstairs and finding a famous singer and her entourage in your kitchen and living room? These people in the Hamptons must not lock their doors, either. It’s good everyone had a sense of humor about the whole thing.  LOL.

Charged With Battery

Kanye West Tussles With A Photographer At LAX

Remember when Kanye West got into a scuffle with a paparazzo at LAX after the paparazzo dared speak to him? Well, the paparazzi hasn’t forgotten; he pressed charges. The LA City Attorney charged Kanye with criminal battery and attempted grand theft. Each charge carries a penalty of six months, so if Kanye is convicted of both, he could face up to a year in prison.

The paparazzo hired attorney Gloria Allred, who told TMZ her client was “badly injured” during the attack. Gloria’s specialty seems to be getting settlements for her clients, so I’m sure that’s what will happen here. Kanye’s scheduled to be arraigned on October 10th. I bet this will be settled, and the criminal charges dismissed, before then. What do you think?

Suing Mad After Paparazzo Knocks Her Down

Nicole Kidman Arrives At The Calvin Klein Fashion Show In NYC

OMG! Nicole Kidman had just left the Calvin Klein Fashion Show as part of New York Fashion Week when a paparazzo named Carl Wu, who rushing by on his bike, crashed into her. Both of them were knocked to the ground. In the pictures in the gallery, Nicole’s assistant and hotel staff are helping her up. Nicole was so angry, she called the police. TMZ reported what happened once the cops arrived.

Witnesses at the scene tell us … Nicole has no visible injuries. Cops are saying they will write Wu a ticket for riding his bike on the sidewalk, but will not arrest him for a criminal offense. One cop said, “An accident’s an accident.”

Talk about a lucky paparazzo! I wonder if Nicole is exploring civil action? Apparently this paparazzo is known for having run-ins with celebs. There’s apparently a tumbler account called “F*** You Carl Wu.” Goodness. I’m glad no one was seriously injured.



Calm On Red Carpet But Struggling To Promote ‘Diana’

'Diana' Paris Premiere At UGC Normandie

Naomi Watts looks lovely on the red carpet, as always. She dazzled in a white gown at the ‘Diana‘ premiere in the UK, too. Although Naomi is shining on the red carpet, she had a rough time with the British press while promoting this movie. Naomi ended up walking out during a radio interview and had to have the director of ‘Diana’ join her by the time she got to her final interview.

The British critics pretty much savaged the movie ‘Diana,’ and many of the British public seem to feel the movie is in poor taste. However, everyone seems to feel Naomi did an outstanding job portraying the late Princess Diana: the criticism is with the subject matter itself and, apparently, the dialogue. Releasing it so close to the anniversary of her death probably wasn’t incredibly sensitive, either. I feel badly for Princes William and Harry. But I’m surprised Naomi wasn’t prepared for all of this. Do you think you’ll watch ‘Diana’?



Hitting Back At Joan Rivers

Michael Lohan Arrives At Lindsay's NYC Hotel

Have you heard about the back-and-forth between comedienne Joan Rivers and Michael Lohan, Lindsay Lohan’s father? Joan fired the first shot by making some drug jokes about Lindsay. Michael decided he had to respond by saying Joan was hooked on needles (botox) and cutting (plastic surgery). Joan threatened to sue over Michael’s remarks. Michael hit back on the ‘Cohen & Cameron‘ radio show. Michael said:

“The sad part is she can poke and make fun of so many people and she makes a career out of it but when someone says something about her, and now even her daughter, she blows a fuse.  I could have gone a lot deeper and gotten personal with things about her own family.  Her husband and his problems and what happened to him.  I could go there but I am going to do that?  No…because I have more respect than that.”

Since Joan’s husband committed suicide, I think that’s a wise move on Michael’s part. That WOULD be hitting way below the belt. Michael also said:

“…I’ve never had a qualm with Joan.  Look when Lindsay was doing her own thing, OK…she was fair game, but now she’s doing the right thing.  Do not pick on her.  She’s never been in a better place than she is now, not in the last eight years at least.”

What does he think about Joan threatening to sue him?

“And now she wants to sue me?  What kind of grounds does she have to sue me?  What is this woman, an idiot?”

Oy vey. Michael said Lindsay just wants to take the high road and not respond, which I think is the smartest move anyone’s made in this little bit of drama! You can listen to Michael’s entire interview on the ‘Cohen & Cameron’ website.
