Natalie Portman “Shocked And Disgusted” By Dior’s John Galliano

I don’t know if you’ve been following the problems of Dior’s chief designer, John Galliano. He was suspended by Dior after videos are said to show the designer making anti-Semitic comments. There’s also a possible criminal investigation occurring after a fight that occurred in a restaurant.

Now Oscar winner Natalie Portman, who is also a spokeswoman for a Dior fragrance, has made a public statement about the matter.

“I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video” Portman, 29, said in a statement from Los Angeles. “In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way.”

She adds, “I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful.”

I don’t blame her, and given that Dior has suspended the designer, it doesn’t sound like the fashion house is taking this lightly, either.

Update: apparently Dior has fired Galliano over the video, although the designer denies making anti-Semitic remarks.

Charlie Sheen Introduces His Goddesses (Video)


WHEN will Charlie Sheen’s public meltdown END???

In this clip from his ABC interview, Charlie introduces his two “domestic goddesses“: porn star Rachel “The Rach” Oberlin and model Natalie “Natty” Kenly.

“They’re an international sensation,” Sheen tells ABC’s Andrea Canning, chuckling. “These are my girlfriends, the women that I love that have completed the three parts of my heart.”

And he says: “It’s perfect. It’s awesome. Every day is just filled with just wins. All we do is put wins in the record books. We win so radically in our underwear before our first cup of coffee, it’s scary. People say it’s lonely at the top, but I sure like the view.”

No wonder Charlie’s publicist quit yesterday. Between the rants and this, what else could the guy do?

Christina Aguilera Arrested

OMG! Christina Aguilera and her boyfriend, Matthew Rutler, were arrested in West Hollywood last night, according to TMZ. Apparently Matthew was the one driving, while Christina was in the passenger’s seat.

Law enforcement sources tell us Aguilera appeared to be “extremely intoxicated” and was “unable to take care of herself.”

However, the source adds, “If the driver had NOT been arrested for DUI, [Christina] would have never been in trouble.”

Sources close to Xtina tell us they have been trying to get the singer into a rehab program for weeks.

It looks like Christina is really struggling since her divorce. If she does have a problem, then maybe this will be wake-up call. Thank goodness no one was hurt!

He’s “tired of pretending I’m not special.” Oh boy. This meltdown is taking on epic proportions.

Are Rihanna And Ciara Feuding On Twitter?

Rihanna and Ciara apparently are not BFFs. Worse, it sounds like the two have had some kind of falling out. When Ciara appeared on Joan River’s ‘Fashion Police’ show, she didn’t have the most flattering things to say about Rihanna (and it wasn’t all just about the dress).

“I ran into her recently at a party and she wasn’t the nicest, and it’s crazy because I’ve always respected what she’s done with fashion and I’ve ran into her before, but this time it just wasn’t the most pleasant run-in, so…”

The sentence was finished off by comedienne Joan Rivers: “…a b**ch. Next!”

Rihanna retorted on twitter:

My bad ci, did I 4get to tip u? #howrudeofme

Ciara reportedly hit back (the tweet has since been deleted):

“Trust me Rhianna u dont want to see me on or off the stage“

Rihanna retaliated with:

“U gangsta huh? Haaa. Good luck with bookin that stage u speak of.”

But then she calmed down:

“Ciara baby, I love u girl! U hurt my feelings real bad on TV! I’m heartbroken! That’s y I retaliated this way! So sorry! #letsmakeup”

Ciara didn’t respond, but she does have this tweet up:

#TEAM CIARA: Catch CiCi on Fashion Police on E! tonight! Check your local listings for times!

Hmm… this isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors about Rihanna being a diva. Hopefully this will blow over.

Charlie Sheen Is “Never” Returning To ‘Two And A Half Men’, Even If CBS Begs

And the fallout from Charlie Sheen’s rants continues. Pop Eater reports that friends of Charlie Sheen’s say the ‘Two and a Half Men’ star is so angry about CBS’ decision to cancel the remaining shows for the season that he will not EVER return to the hit sitcom.

“Charlie is furious that they have done this,” a close friend of the actor tells me. “He has never been late for work, and what he does and says in his private life is none of [CBS's] business. He feels like they have made billions off him, and now they dare to pull his show just because they didn’t like an interview he did.”

“At this moment he would never return to that show even if they begged him,” another Charlie insider tells me. “He’s given these fools the number one comedy on TV, and their feelings get hurt over a stupid radio interview. Nothing would get him back on that set. It’s over. Done.”

Charlie may feel that strongly, but his contract is said to be for two years, so if CBS decides to try filming next season, he could be facing a really big lawsuit if he doesn’t show up on set.

I’m afraid to see how this trainwreck is going to end.

Billy Ray Cyrus Is Mending His Family

At least, that’s what Billy Ray Cyrus has told People: his focus now is on putting his family back together.

“It is very important to me to work on mending my family right now,” Cyrus, 49, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.

Calling his recent comments “explosive, and unintentionally so,” Cyrus says, “My family is the most important thing I have, and we are working together to make sure our future is stronger and healthier.

“It is all a learning process, and we thank everyone for their support and respect of our privacy as we sort through very important family issues,” he says.

Billy Ray reportedly has been spending time in LA with estranged wife Tish and daughter Noel.

I hope he’s sincere, but I just can’t see how all the media interviews are helping. This is something to be done in private, don’t you think?
