Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Sniffer

This pop star sniffed that she never liked her musician friend’s ex-girlfriend and that she encouraged him to break up with her.

Maybe that wasn’t such a good idea. Here is some of the feedback we got from people close to the situation:

"She knows damn well that he could not have broken up with her (even if he wanted to) because the relationship was contractual!"

That’s not all.

"She just hates other women. [The musician’s ex-girlfriend] never did anything to her but she wanted to tear her down anyway. That’s why she has no female friends. If you ever see a female hanging out with her, guarantee it’s someone whose paycheck she signs."

Finally, there’s her compulsion to publicly comment on other people’s relationships.

"She should keep her mouth shut about who other people are dating. She wouldn’t like it if people knew the real story of her and [her ex]. If someone went to the media with all the real information about her relationship and all the cheating and the STDs and the abortions, she’d be curled up in a corner, crying, cutting herself, and drinking herself into a coma."

We don’t think The Sniffer would be cool with that.

Brendan Dassey Headed to Wrestlemania

By now you have probably read that the conviction of one of the subjects of Netflix's Making a Murderer, Brendan Dassey, has been overturned. He still has to wait in jail for a bit; prosecutors have 90 days to decide whether or not to try to retry Dassey. But the huge WWE wrestling fan just received some great news - Wrestler xHamster is going to get Dassey to Wrestlemania, provided he is out of jail. xHamster released the following statement, as reprinted by E! News:


"We are pleased that we can make this young man's dream of going to Wrestlemania come true. We have been in talks with the family and they are more than thrilled that Brendan will get this opportunity after so many years of heartache and injustice. We are waiting on a response from Brendan and we know he will be thrilled that he is going to Wrestlemania when he gets out."

Usher recently appeared on the Howard Stern show, where he was asked about his protege Justin Bieber's naked pictures hitting the Internet. Here's what he had to say, as reprinted by E! News:

"He does have a brain of his own. He listen he has a mind of his own. What he chose to do with his penis is his prerogative you know what I'm saying. He's managing that aspect of his life. I have nothing to do with Justin Bieber's private parts."

On whether or not the Biebs listens to Usher anymore:
"I mean as a mentor, as he's has accepted my opinion, I can give my perspective. He's like a child to me so I don't necessarily feel like his business. I feel like I'm talking to someone who has had hardships. Like, if your child ever has difficulties...anyone listening understands that nobody's perfect. You're going to have moments and when he does I can only show him the reality of what it is that has happened."

DMX is a Daddy for the 15th Time

Yes, you read that correctly. TMZ reports that rapper DMX, 45, just welcomed his 15th child. It's his first with this baby mama, longtime girlfriend Desiree. The couple have named their new son Exodus Simmons. DMX was previously married to Tashera Simmons for 11 years, which accounts for a bunch of his children, but he cheated on her constantly, which accounts for the rest. DMX tried filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to dodge his child support payments in 2013, but the case was thrown out. Looks like his monthly payments just went up. Looks like it's way past time for someone to get snipped!

Thomas Gibson's Secret Divorce

Thomas Gibson is not having a good month. In addition to getting fired from Criminal Minds, the news has just gotten out that Gibson, 54, secretly filed for divorce from wife of 20 years Christine, over two years ago. Gibson states in the filing, as reprinted by Page Six, "the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities … that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.” The couple are still duking things out in divorce court, as the case has not yet been settled.


Shannen Doherty Wins Big in Court

Shannen Doherty, who is currently battling breast cancer, just scored a major legal victory against her former business management firm, Tanner Mainstain. She sued them for $15 million for neglecting to pay her SAG health insurance premium, which resulted in her coverage being dropped, and delaying the diagnosis of her breast cancer. TMZ reports that the two sides have settled, and that the amount Shannen receives from Tanner Mainstain will remain confidential. We all know that Shannen Doherty does not fuck around, so we can safely assume that the settlement is a generous one. Now let's watch her kick cancer's ass just like she did her former business manager's.

I don't know if this helps prevent them, but I feel like it's a good thing to do anyway πŸ˜‚. Plus, I enjoy a little TLC after the shower πŸ’–. I'm big into coconut oils and coco butters.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Please Feel Sorry For Me

This celebrity is not above dragging in some poor innocent people to make herself look better.

Our actress is very tired of the comments and attacks on her obviously altered face. She is feeling defensive, and unfortunately for her, it shows in interviews.

"Her team wants [The Actress] her to continue the promotional tour for [the project], so they can’t do the faux illness. Instead, they dragged up the story and the family of some guy she dated last century to try to make her the object of sympathy rather than criticism.

The truth is that she hasn’t had any contact with the family in at least ten years. This is all about her trying to make [the Actress] look like a sympathetic figure. The family doesn’t even realize they’re being used."

So it sounds like instead having her fake an illness (so you’ll feel sorry for her and stop criticizing her), her team will now have her fake grieving (so you’ll feel sorry for her and stop criticizing her).

Two different approaches aiming for the same result.

I just find it hysterical that this whole thing started because Lochte called his mommy and told her this fantastical story as a way to explain why he lost all of his money, and then his mother called the media and repeated the story. Obviously Lochte shouldn't have lied in the first place, but it is slightly endearing that he doubled down on his story instead of throwing his mother under the bus.

She has already rented a place in Malibu. Okay, she has to be getting the world legal advice ever. First, she bungled the original $15 million, and now she's getting less than $10K more per month, but lost out on the house that she won in the original settlement. I think she's doing this wrong.

This young actress has shocked a former cast mate with her pretend disgust over the commercialization of her relationship.

"What is she blathering on about? No one forced her to pretend to date [her costar]! She signed a contract with terms for her participation. She did it to make the films popular and to raise her own popularity and her own salary each time [a new film was made]. This wasn’t some altruistic gesture. It was all selfish. She made an enormous amount of money from this. Her pretense that she is oh-so-above-it-all and that she wanted the relationship to be pure is rubbish. Frankly I’m gobsmacked that she would try to portray herself as some sort of poor unwitting victim. SHE SIGNED UP FOR IT!"

Money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully help those less able to defend themselves. Hopefully this experience results in a positive change in the lives of people who need it the most."

Lest you think she's just talking out of her ass, Children's Hospital LA released the following statement thanking Heard: "her generosity will support the lifesaving treatments and cures that CHLA provides for critically ill children each year."

Well, good on her. Although the cynic in me is saying this is why she traded up from a millionaire to a billionaire. How much money is Elon Musk gifting her that she can afford to just give away $7 million like it's nothing? If she gets less messy with the media coverage, I could learn to respect that hustle!

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Psychobabble and a Paper Bag

Some people who get plastic surgery like to keep it to themselves. Nothing wrong with that.

However, when their looks have changed dramatically, it’s crazy to think that no will notice or that no one will comment.

When a celebrity not lies about having work done… then doubles down on the lie… and then acts indignant when multiple parties call her out on it… and then attacks the press… and then starts babbling more nonsense…. the people around her are going to start worrying.

"It’s not good. An interviewer asks a simple question about her appearance, she gets mad, goes off on some incoherent rant that’s part defensive and part psychobabble.

Yeah, we’re a little panicky at this point. You can modify a poster or CGI a film, but what are we supposed to do for personal interviews, put a bag over her freaking head?

She’s losing it, but we still have a big part of the press tour to go and we can’t have her fighting with the media. If it gets worse, we might have to have her fake an illness or something and let [the actors in the film] carry the tour."

The New York Times Profiles Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart was recently profiled in the New York Times' T Magazine. Here are some of the highlights from her interview:

On her relationship with fame, after overcoming "debilitating physical anxiety" in her early 20s:
“[The attention] is no longer negative or fear-based. I do think that’s because of the storms I have weathered. It’s not that they make you stronger or calloused — but they do make you a human. I’m not the typical showman. But at the same time, I want so badly to expose myself. I want to be understood and I want to be seen, and I want to do that in the rawest, purest, most naked way I can.”

On Robert Pattinson:
“People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product. It wasn’t real life anymore. And that was gross to me. It’s not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I’m doing in my life. It’s that I don’t want to become a part of a story for entertainment value.”

On girlfriend Alicia Cargile:
“Look how cute she is. I love her so much. I would never talk about any of my relationships before, but once I started dating girls it seemed like there was an opportunity to represent something really positive. I still want to protect my personal life, but I don’t want to seem like I’m protecting the idea, so that does sort of feel like I owe something to people.”

On navigating how much of her life to keep private:
“How do you feel like you’re not being stolen from, yet at the same time not guard yourself to the point of depriving yourself of so much goodness in life?"

On insomnia:
"Nothing killed me. I was skinny as hell, I looked crazy, but I was fine. I now have faith in my body to carry on, and that has made me a better actor.”

On her grueling work schedule during the filming of Personal Shopper:
“As a younger person, I would have lost steam: ‘I’m tired. I don’t feel good. I’m sick.’ Instead I tried to make myself more sick, more tired, just to see if there ever was a breaking point, and there wasn’t.”

On painting:
“Yeah, I mean, I’m not, like, good. It just feels nice to apply paint to something.”

On making a short film inspired by one of her poems:
“It’s basically about that moment when you wake up and you get dressed and you realize. I’m not sad anymore. I’m not saturated anymore. I’ve been dropped back into everyone else’s reality and now I can live again.”

Andy Samberg Talks Modesty

Andy Samberg recently sat down for an interview with Playboy. Here's what he had to say:

Ken Jeong, Jason Segel and Sacha Baron Cohen have gone full monty in movie comedies. Will you up the ante?
"I don’t think I’d ever do it, because of the internet. Once you show your dick, that’s the first image that comes up on Google for the rest of your life. I don’t want my dick on the internet."

You got hired as an SNL cast member, and your Lonely Island partners were hired as writers. Did the pressure of doing the show put a strain on your relationship?
"I had done a lot of stand-up and we led with me for that first audition. Akiva didn’t want to be on camera. He took a writer’s meeting. Jorma auditioned, but he was a theater major. He is super funny and would have been great on the show, but he never did the Groundlings or tried improv or anything like that. We all wrote and submitted a writers’ packet together, and Jorma and Akiva helped me write my audition. The fact that we all got hired was incredible and a victory for the three of us. Once we were hired, we started to make those videos together, and it was always about the three of us. The nature of the show sometimes threatened to drive a stake between us, but we rarely let it happen."

When did you first feel “I’m famous”?
"You get hired on SNL, but except for the show’s die-hard fans, nobody knows who you are until you do something that everyone’s talking about. After we did Lazy Sunday with Chris Parnell in 2005, I would be out in public and people would go, “Hey, Lazy Sunday!” That first wave feels the biggest because you’re going from not at all famous to thinking, Holy shit, somebody just spotted me on the street. It’s both exhilarating and terrifying, but the truth is, you’ve just scraped the surface to the point that, if there’s a Google search for you, now at least there’s something there. The second big one was Dick in a Box, and to this day that’s still probably the biggest. Lorne likes to joke about the thing you’ll be most remembered for on your tombstone. He’s like, “I’ll be Lorne ‘SNL’ Michaels, and you’ll be Andy ‘Dick in a Box’ Samberg.” I’m very comfortable with that. I love that video. I still find it really funny, and it was huge for our careers. It was a moment. There was a Justin Timberlake explosion happening and the video got picked up everywhere. That was the first time I really felt the power of the media and the first time I was getting more attention than I was comfortable with."

There is, of course, that other comedy clichΓ©—that all comedians are depressed. Have you ever had to dip into the Xanax or talk to a therapist?
"Yeah, I have. Not a ton. I’m generally a pretty happy person. For a lot of people, the honesty and realness that produce the best comedy means you’re facing the world as it is. You’re trying to uncover some truth, and that can be painful and scary. There’s a lot of things about being a human on earth that there are no answers to, and that’s the scariest part of it, depending on your faith and what you believe. I think most comedians believe in comedy, which we do with some pretty daunting unanswered questions, and that can lead to depression. That said, when I get down it’s generally more about working myself too hard and losing my handle. Or something incredibly sad happens in the world or in my world and I’m affected by that. I definitely feel things deeply. And when you feel great joy and major highs, you are susceptible to major lows."

You didn’t wait until college to lose your virginity, though, did you?
"I was, I believe, 16 or 17. It was at summer camp. I was on the junior staff and she was girls’ head counselor. She was 24. She could tell I probably was a virgin. I was flirty; there was a friendship and a playful thing between us, but I didn’t really think it would ever be real because of the age difference. I think she just decided for me. It was only once. I wouldn’t say I was good, but it was great for me."
