Report: Katie Holmes to receive $4.8 million in child support

Posted by Rachel Raczka August 28, 2012 09:30 AM

katie-holmes-suri.jpgWell, that will buy a whole lot of Baby Dior! Katie Holmes was blocked from receiving a cent from ex-husband Tom Cruise's $250 million fortune via a prenuptial agreement, however, their daughter Suri will receive a $4.8 million payout over the next 12 years, according to a report from TMZ.com cited by Reuters. That roughly breaks down to $33,333.33 a month -- in addition to Suri's education, medical, and extracurricular expenses -- until the six-year-old turns 18.

The TMZ report claims that Holmes will not receive a monetary payout in the divorce, which quickly reached a settlement within two weeks of the announcement of their separation, but RadarOnline noted the actress will still walk away with "all of the jewelry, handbags, accessories, and designer clothing" gifted to her by her husband during their marriage.

TMZ also reported that the exes agreed that Suri will not attend "residential school ... Scientology or otherwise" until college.

Thoughts on the reported agreement? Do you think Holmes should have walked away with a cash settlement as well? Or do you think she got off easy? Comment here.

my wife michelle
was diagnosed with desmoid tumors in june
a mysterious rare – too often fatal disease
that affects 3 in a million people

we were to wed 10 days ago
but her illness forced us to postpone the wedding
luckily -
as i was in ICU that day

when it rains …
things grow
like love and flowers
humans too

so on we go
we married in private
before her surgery
just the 2 of us

The pair announced they were engaged in December and originally planned to wed this month when health issues caused them to move up the ceremony.

Kim Kardashian lets Kanye into her closet

Posted by Rachel Raczka August 27, 2012 09:35 AM

Kanye West continues his ambiguous appearances on girlfriend Kim Kardashian's E! reality show, "Keeping up with the Kardashians," this time arriving with his stylist, Renelou Padora, to clean out his lady love's wardrobe. Kardashian sets the premise for the visit, saying West has arrived for a "full clothing makeover," while explaining that their relationship has "definitely inspired [her] to be a little more of an individual."

West, who remains as reality-TV-awkward-as-ever -- sheepishly shuffling and mumbling in the background, eyes to the floor -- zones in on a patent-leather shearling handbag while Padora chimes in, "It's a dog bag, no?"

Kardashian stood back as her beau and his stylist ransacked her "ghetto" closet, tossing undesirables, stating that she trusts West's judgement because "he's a fashion designer and he loves clothes."

While the piles of clothes and shoes nixed from Kim's closet left us feeling a wee bit of remorse, the situation ended with a happy note. The reality starlet immediately Tweeted that she'll be donating the goods to charity via eBay.

Rumors are also swirling that Kimye may be considering a reality series of their very own, but nothing has been set in stone for the pair just yet. Would you let your significant other clean out your closet? What if he was a "fashion designer"? What if he was Kanye West? (Does that help? NO?) Share your thoughts and comment here.

Gym. Tan. Laundry. Diaper duty.
Nicole Polizzi, better known to the world as "Snooki," is now a mom.
The 24-year-old reality TV star of MTV's "Jersey Shore" delivered a 6-pound, 5-ounce baby boy named Lorenzo Dominic LaValle at just before 3 a.m. Sunday at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J., reports MTV. The star is engaged to the baby's father, Jionni LaValle.

Read the congratulatory tweets by fellow "Jersey Shore" castmates, courtesy of E! Online.

MTV was quick to congratulate her, releasing this statement: "We couldn't be happier for Nicole and Jionni on the healthy delivery of their baby boy! We look forward to Lorenzo's first trip to the Jersey Shore and can't wait to see his first animal print onesie."

No word yet on how big of a part the new mom will play in the upcoming sixth season of "Jersey Shore," premiering Oct. 4, reports the AP.

Tony Danza may or may not be running for mayor

Actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tony Danza at the "Premium Rush" New York premiere at Regal Union Square on Aug. 22.


In true politically vague fashion, "Who's the Boss" star Tony Danza implied that he may be interested in running for political office in the city of New York ... maybe. Danza chatted with the Wall Street Journal at the premiere of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's new flick, "Premium Rush," while wearing a NYPD T-shirt under a black blazer. And though he did not directly confirm, the 61-year-old actor was not shy about his thoughts, “I’m of a certain age, and you see things, and you think maybe you could help. You say: ‘Let me fix the city. Let me run for Mayor.’”

Danza could be joining the ranks of his fellow celebrity politicos, "30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin and city-centric rapper Jay-Z, but he scoffed at the potential competition: “Can Alec Baldwin be a viable candidate? Or Jay-Z? If Jay-Z were mayor, would they play that song in ads? Or just the chorus? ‘Neeewww York.’ It’s got a great hook, I love that part.”

He also commented on public and green transportation ("Rollerblades--I'm a skater."), monetary contributions to politicians ("The country's been hoodwinked ..."), and his qualifications ("I'm concerned ... I read the papers.")

Danza did not confirm or deny his intentions or his political party alignments but we're curious to see how this plays out. An all-star ballot for the next mayoral race? We'd tune in to see that.

Lance Armstrong stripped of his titles

Posted by Kristi Palma August 24, 2012 08:22 AM

Cycling champion Lance Armstrong, who won seven Tour de France titles and beat testicular cancer, is throwing in the towel in his years-long battle against the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency over allegations that he took performance-enhancing drugs.

As a result, the US Anti-Doping Agency stripped Armstrong of his seven titles and banned him for life from the sport.

Read more from the AP.

"There comes a point in every man's life when he has to say, 'Enough is enough.' For me, that time is now," Armstrong said in a statement on his website.

Armstrong has always denied allegations of illegal doping and has never been convicted of any doping charges. But the agency is accusing Armstrong of using, possessing, trafficking, and giving to others performance-enhancing drugs, as well as covering up doping violations, according to the report. Testimony from former teammates support the charges, the agency says.

The retired cyclist says he stopped fighting the charges because he is tired of what he calls an unfair battle to prove his innocence and wants to focus on helping people fight cancer instead.

What do you think? Should Armstong be stripped of his titles?

Nicki Minaj performed on NBC's "Today" show in New York Aug. 14

Rapper Nicki Minaj is reportedly in talks to take a seat on the "American Idol" judge's panel for season 12 next to newcomer Mariah Carey. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news Friday, and US Weekly also claims to have a confirmation. Veteran judge Randy Jackson has not yet confirmed that he will return to the show, and Enrique Iglesias's name is also floating around the rumor mill as a possible new judge. Time will tell if the entire panel is replaced this season (judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez announced their departures from the show after last season). What do you think of Minaj as a judge?

Lady Gaga is now a brunette. The typically blond pop megastar is known for her varying and often over-the-top fashion statements, but this time the "Born This Way" singer seems a bit softer sporting her light brown locks than her usual edgy vibe. Do you agree? She debuted the new color while in Amsterdam. Read more in US Weekly.

Country-pop singing sensation Taylor Swift was seen again in Hyannis Port with boyfriend Conor Kennedy.

Kristen Stewart talks about life in the spotlight, Jessica Simpson's father arrested for DUI, and more

Posted by Katie McLeod August 10, 2012 01:50 PM

While "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart has been receiving extra attention recently because of her admitted affair with her married "Snow White and the Huntsman" director, Rupert Sanders, and her public apology to boyfriend and "Twilight" husband Robert Pattinson, she told EW a few weeks ago at Comic-Con in San Diego how she feels about being in the public spotlight:

“People who are a complete non-person but somehow through the lens seem like they are on and interesting and engaged. I care way more about the people standing in the room. I don’t want anyone leaving and saying, ‘God, that girl is so fake.’ People tell me to make it easier on myself and to play a character when I go out on carpets and stuff. But you know what? I’d rather be me.”

Despite her relationship troubles, do you think K-Stew is living up to being real?

In other news ... Fashionista-singer-new mom Jessica Simpson's father, Joe Simpson, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to E! News. A spokewoman for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the incident, which took place on Aug. 4 in Sherman Oaks, Calif.

Posted by Katie McLeod August 7, 2012 11:15 AM

What do you think of Jimmy Fallon as host of the Academy Awards? While there's been no official announcement about who will be named host this year by the Motion Picture Academy, Jimmy Fallon is reportedly being considered for the role -- and one reason why he might not be: Jimmy Kimmel. The Oscars are broadcast on ABC, and Kimmel, a late-night talk show host on ABC, is in competition with Fallon, a late-night talk show host on NBC. While we don't know who will ultimately get the Oscar gig, this got us wondering about Fallon's ability to host. Would you like to see him take the spotlight on Hollywood's big night?

Report: Michael Phelps's girlfriend revealed

Posted by Katie McLeod August 6, 2012 03:43 PM

phelps.jpgE! News is reporting that the identity of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps's girlfriend is 25-year-old model Megan Rossee, from Los Angeles. E! cites an unnamed source as confirming the news, but there's been no official word from Phelps or Rossee, who recently tweeted a photo of the pair together in support of the superstar swimmer. And last week, she tweeted this:

"@MichaelPhelps this probably will get lost in your tweets but since i cant text i miss you and cant wait to spend time with you for real xo."

With a record 22 Olympic medals under his belt, including 18 gold medals, Phelps should have some time to relax after the games since he retired from competitive swimming on Saturday ... so maybe, just maybe, we'll see a Phelps-Rossee public romance heat up some time soon. Time will tell.

So what do you think? Are you surprised by this match? Or have you been suspect all along?
