Katy Perry, Russell Brand both at Lakers game

Singer Katy Perry and actor Russell Brand sat separately at the Los Angeles Lakers game Oct. 30

The Staples Center in Los Angeles was full of excitement last night, and not just because of what was happening on the court.

Fans of Katy Perry and Russell Brand were no doubt eyeing the former couple, who both attended the Los Angeles Lakers' NBA season opener against the Dallas Mavericks, but sat separately.

It may have been the first time they've appeared publicly at the same place since divorcing earlier this year, reports E! News. The stars sat on opposite sides of the court and did not interact.

We're surprised Perry didn't bring her on-again-off-again beau John Mayer to the game.

Katy Perry split with singer John Mayer in August after a summer romance. However, last month the couple was spotted hanging out several times, going out to dinner, seeing live shows, and even checking out a strip club in Vegas, reports People.com.

Do you think Perry and Brand would have said hi had they run into each other?

Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher spark pregnancy rumors

Posted by Kristi Palma October 30, 2012 06:52 AM

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, dressed casually for a coffee run in Los Angeles, are spawning pregnancy rumors.

The pair, who used to play a couple on "That '70s Show," have not been shy with their public displays of affection over the past several months.

Take, for example, the time they were spotted smooching at a wrap party in July. Or how about the time they were caught kissing in Central Park last month?

For this particular coffee run, Kunis wore a striped tank top and rolled up jeans. And is that a belly bump hiding beneath those stripes?

Nope, said Kunis's rep. She is not pregnant.

Do you think Kutcher and Kunis should wind up together?

Lucky magazine apologizes for Britney Spears photo

Posted by Kristi Palma October 29, 2012 07:52 AM

Some Britney Spears fans on Twitter are outraged with the December cover of Lucky magazine featuring the pop singer and "X-Factor" judge, calling Lucky "lazy" and "unprofessional" for a photo that some think features Spears in an unnatural-looking wig with face-altering computer touch-ups.

While the magazine has not commented on whether it altered Spears via computer or used a wig in the shoot, it has tweeted an apology. There has been no response from the Spears camp.

Read some of the tweets sent to Lucky:

This is from @itsmealexandra:

Why on earth would you put that horrendous wig on @britneyspears? It's lazy & unprofessional. Why not use her natural hair?

And then there was this by @TheRealSkittLeZ:

That cover looks horrible. Did @britneyspears even show up for the photoshoot or did you just photoshop her face on a body

And this by @xproudofbritney:

The photoshoot is pretty awesome the problem is the photoshop used on Britney's face. It's terrible she has a natural beauty.

And also this by @_ShaunyBoy_:

they're bad because it's notthe real her! When you adjust someone's face so much it's out of order on them. Bad photoshop.

Lucky's response?

What do you think of the cover?

Kris Jenner on Kim Kardashian's diamond: 'It is not an engagement ring'

Posted by Kristi Palma October 26, 2012 09:07 AM

Kim Kardashian has been wearing some serious bling on her finger since her 32nd birthday celebration with boyfriend Kanye West in Italy last week.

Yes, it's a very large diamond ring. But she's wearing it on her pinky finger, not her ring finger.

Still, the new jewelry is only adding fuel to the rumors that the couple has become engaged.

"It is not an engagment ring," said mom Kris Jenner in the above E! News video. "Because I would know about it."

But she told E! she'd be thrilled if the couple did, in fact, get engaged because "Kanye is such a great guy...he's already part of our family. We adore him...I think they make an amazing couple."

Do you think the couple will get engaged?

Levi Johnston to tie the knot

Posted by Kristi Palma October 26, 2012 08:18 AM

He was almost a Palin. But now he's putting a ring on another finger.

Levi Johnston, 22, is getting married this week to Sunny Oglesby, 20, a teacher and the mother of his second child.

"Glad to finally have a ring on my finger," wrote Oglesby on Facebook this week.

The couple had a baby girl in September and named her Breeze Beretta, after the Italian firearms manufacturer. The couple have been together for more than a year.

Johnston has a 4-year-old son, Tripp, with ex-fiancee Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson talk mistakes and life on press tour

Posted by Kristi Palma October 25, 2012 08:21 AM

The "Breaking Dawn: Part 2" press tour has begun.

Get ready for all things Robsten.

Check out the leggy Louis Vuitton checkered jumpsuit Kristen Stewart, 22, rocked on the red carpet Tokyo premeire of her movie in the E! News video above.

Her costar Robert Pattinson, 26, was not by her side at the Tokyo premiere. Instead, he was promoting the film in Australia.

Check out fan pics (including one of Pattinson out and about in Australia) and other footage of the press tour on the Twitter account dedicated to all things Robsten: @StrictlyRobsten

When they aren't on the red carpet, the former couple is sitting down for interviews.

And Stewart is talking about mistakes, reports E! News.

Here's what E! reported about an interview Stewart gave to Mexican magazine 15 a 20: "If you're an honest person you'll make mistakes, but it'll be OK," said Stewart, per a fan site's translation. "The most interesting things happen after making mistakes."

Stewart and Pattinson broke up when she cheated on him with director Rupert Sanders.

But rumors have been swirling that the pair reconciled this fall and have been getting cozy again just in time for the promotion tour. We're still waiting to hear from them on this, though.

15 a 20 also talked to Pattinson (who graces the cover) and here's what he said:

"I'm still young," Pattinson said, asked if he has reflected much on the last four years. "I'm still trying to run my life, so there's not much time to reflect. I feel like someone just put me in charge of a train that is out of control, and I'm finally learning how to be in charge of it. It's hard to deal and accept what's happened."

Are you ready to see and hear more from Robsten on tour?

Tom Cruise suing Life & Style magazine for $50 million

Posted by Kristi Palma October 25, 2012 07:09 AM

Tom Cruise is suing Life & Style magazine for $50 million because of a July cover that featured a tearful photo of his 6-year-old daughter Suri and a headline that read "Abandoned by her dad."

Suri has been in the news a lot since the public break up of Cruise and Katie Holmes. But she was also featured in the magazine before they broke up this past June. Life & Style ran a cover story about Suri in March 2011 with the headline "Suri's twisted world."

But it's the July headline about abandonment that prompted Cruise to file a $50 million defamation lawsuit.

"Tom is a caring father who dearly loves Suri," Bert Fields, Cruise's attorney, told the Associated Press. "She's a vital part of his life and always will be," Fields said. "To say it in lurid headlines with a tearful picture of Suri is reprehensible."

Furthermore, said his lawyer, Cruise is not suing for the money and would give it to charity if he wins.

Do you think Cruise should win his lawsuit?

Posted by Kristi Palma October 24, 2012 06:58 AM

It looks like it could be game over between actress Eva Longoria and New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.

The two have split up, a source tells People.com. This is the former "Desperate Housewives" star's second relationship with an athlete that has ended. She was married to basketball star Tony Parker for six years. Perhaps she should start dating bankers or musicians?

Are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West engaged?

Posted by Kristi Palma October 23, 2012 07:45 AM

Will Kim Kardashian soon be Mrs. Kanye West?

Rumor has it Kanye West may have popped the big question. This, almost exactly a year after Kardashian filed for divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries.

The story goes ... West whisked Kardashian off to Italy for her 32nd birthday celebration. The lovebirds had dinner at Il Bolognese restaurant, reported People.com. But here's where things got interesting. Kardashian entered the restaurant wearing a long black dress and boots. But then she changed into an emerald dress and heals. That's right, she left the restaurant in an entirely different outfit, puzzling fans as well as restaurant workers.

"[Kim] went into the bathroom and changed," the restaurant owner told People.com. "Some of our guests were already quite stunned by her presence and even more so when she reappeared looking completely different."

Not only that, but her left hand was noticeably tucked into her green dress as she left the restaurant.

On Kardashian's actual birthday, while walking through Venice with West, she wore a bridal-inspired knee-length dress of white and lace.

Why the dress change at the restaurant? Why the hidden ring finger?

All Kimye fans are getting at this point is this enthusiastic tweet from Miss K:

Do you think the couple is engaged? Should they get engaged?

Tom Hanks swears on live TV

Posted by Kristi Palma October 22, 2012 09:31 AM

Oopsie!

It's a first for Hollywood veteran and Oscar-winner Tom Hanks. He fell victim to a blush-worthy unscripted moment while chatting with Elizabeth Vargas on "Good Morning America." That is, he dropped an F-bomb on live TV.

Both Hanks and Vargas gasped and covered their mouths after the slip up.

Hanks said "I've never done that before," apologized to the nation's children, and joked that the next time he's on the show there will be a 7-second delay.

In his defense, when Vargas asked him to demonstrate his accent in his new movie, "Cloud Atlas," he warned that his character talked mostly in swear words.

Life is indeed like a box of chocolates, eh Tom?

What do you think of Hanks's foul moment?

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are married

Posted by Kristi Palma October 22, 2012 08:23 AM

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are now Mr. and Mrs. Justin Timberlake.

A couple doesn't get much more 'N Sync than that.

That's right, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel got hitched over the weekend on the romantic Italian coast. There was much anticipation leading up to the couple's wedding.

The couple married Friday at the Borgo Egnazia resort in Puglia, Italy.

"It was magical," Timberlake, 31, told People.com. "It was an unforgettable evening."

Why did the couple choose Italy?

Because they love Italian food and wine, reports People.com, which also reported numerous pre-wedding festivities earlier in the week, including open fires, the beach, fireworks, live music, fresh-made cheese, and local olives and wine.

And E! News has the first photo of the newlyweds, looking casual at an Italian airport.

Are you happy for the celebrity couple? Surprised by their destination wedding? Or is it just their style?

Adele announced in June that she and boyfriend Simon Kinecki were expecting their first child together. Well he's finally here!

Report: Britney Spears buys $8.5 million mansion

Posted by Kristi Palma October 19, 2012 07:46 AM

It seems Ms. Britney Spears just might have a new pad.

"The X-Factor" star reportedly bought a $8.5 million mansion in the Thousand Oaks neighborhood in Los Angeles, a source told People.com.

The 8,456 sq. ft. pad, listed at $8.5 million, has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and an infinity pool.

Maybe decorating her new digs with fiancee Jason Trawick will help keep her mind off the libel trial that her family faces.

Spears's former manager, Sam Lutfi, says he was unfairly blamed for the singer's public unraveling more than four years ago. Spears is unlikely to testify, according to The Associated Press. However, her divorced parents -- father Jamie Spears and mother Lynne Spears -- may have to.

Read the latest on the trial.

Report: Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel to marry this week

Posted by Kristi Palma October 18, 2012 07:25 AM


Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel will tie the knot this week on the Italian coast, according to E! News.

The couple is staying mum about the details, but E! reports the guests will include Lady Gaga, Elton John, and Ellen DeGeneres.

The famous duo have been dating for five years and have been engaged since December, 2011. How did Timberlake, 31, first ask his leading lady out? The old-fashioned way, he told the Hollywood Foreign Press -- with a telephone call.

"That's something I learned from both my stepdad and my grandfather -- that there is a thing called chivalry and it doesn’t have to die with the birth of the Internet," Timberlake said.

And here is Timberlake's philosophy on marriage, reported earlier this month by US Weekly:

"I think it's important to remember that you go into something like marriage knowing that you don't know very much about it at all. But I do look at the marriage of my mother and stepdad, and what makes it work for them is that it's a team effort," Timberlake said.

Are you glad Timberlake and Biel are getting hitched?

"Twilight" stars and former couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were photographed together for the first time since reuniting after Stewart's cheating scandal.

Jennifer Lopez's wardrobe malfunction

Posted by Kristi Palma October 16, 2012 07:19 AM



When you are in the public eye as much as celebrities, a "wardrobe malfunction" seems inevitable.

The latest victim? Jennifer Lopez. And for JLo, it happened twice in the same outfit last week!

Lopez, 43, was performing in a sparkling body-hugging catsuit in Italy last Thursday when her cleavage-bearing top shifted. Ever the professional, the singer and dancer kept on performing after a quick adjustment with the aid of her dancers, reports People.com.

But the malfunction didn't stop there. Jenny from the block also revealed a glimpse of her body-shaping Spanx undergarment while wearing the same catsuit, reports Hollywood Life.

She's certainly not the first to suffer embarrassment at the hands of a costume or dress gone awry in the public eye.

Who can forget when Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson performed during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show? The supreme court decided just this past summer not to fine CBS for the incident.

More recently, "Modern Family" actress Sofia Vergara had an oops moment at the Emmys last month when her curve-hugging teal gown split in the derriere area. Check out photos of her assistant doing damage control, courtesy of E! Online.

Judging from this Vergara tweet, the torn teal didn't dampen her spirits.

Check out the photos US Weekly compiled of wardrobe malfunction highlights over the years to see who else has suffered at the hands of torn and shifting designer threads, including famous faces such as Tara Reid, Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, and more.

Did Russell Crowe and his wife split?

Posted by Kristi Palma October 15, 2012 07:25 AM

Did Oscar-winner Russell Crowe and his wife of nine years, Danielle Spencer, split up?

Yes, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. However, Crowe's rep has not commented.

The couple met more than 20 years ago on the set of the 1990 movie "The Crossing," where they played lovers. They have two children together, sons Charles, 8, and Tennyson, 6.

Why would the couple split? One theory involves a June photo that surfaced of Spencer at a Sydney casino lounge with Damian Whitewood, her pro dance partner on Australia's "Dancing with the Stars." The photos showed the two with their arms around each other, reports People.com. Yet, just days later, Crowe and Spencer were showing public displays of affection, says the report.

Michael Jackson's children on the pink carpet

Posted by Kristi Palma October 12, 2012 08:45 AM

"Stay humble," said Paris Jackson. "Don't let things get to your head."

This was her advice to other celebrity children in the spotlight during an appearance by all three of Michael Jackson's children to support a drink called Mr. Pink Ginseng Drink.

They were walking the pink carpet at the Mr. Pink Ginseng Drink launch party in Beverly Hills Thursday night.

Why promote the drink?

"To promote healthiness, actually, because it's a very healthy energy drink," Prince Michael, Jackson's eldest child, told Entertainment Tonight, while standing next to his Aunt La Toya Jackson.

There were plenty of other celebrities there, and Mr. Pink Beverages made sure everyone knew about it, tweeting:

Prince Michael isn't the only one sharing his love for the drink with the world.

Check out this tweet from Lindsay Lohan:

When asked how "the acting thing" is going, Paris said, "Uh, I can't answer that, I'm sorry." But she ruled out a reality show, saying, "I like to keep some parts of my life private."

The children have been in the news lately over guardianship issues.

What do Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling, and Avril Lavigne have in common (besides an affinity for the spotlight)?

Genes.

That's right, the celebrities are actually distant Canadian cousins, reports The Associated Press.

Ancestry.com began researching Bieber's lineage about a year ago, using tidbits the star revealed in interviews. It found Bieber and Gosling are 11th cousins once removed, and Bieber and Lavigne are 12th cousins.

"The great thing about family history is that you never know what you're going to find," Michelle Ercanback, a researcher with Ancentry.com, told the AP. "It was a very pleasant surprise."

Read more about the findings in this AP report. And if you'd like to see a diagram of Bieber's family tree, check it out at E! Online.

And there's one more shocker about the genealogy report...Bieber and Celine Dion are also 10th cousins three times removed! They do sort of look alike, don't they?

Michael Lohan talks about Lindsay's fight with her mom

Posted by Kristi Palma October 11, 2012 07:13 AM

The police were called to Lindsay Lohan's childhood home on Long Island, N.Y., Wednesday morning because of a fight with her mother, Dina Lohan, reports The Associated Press.

Michael Lohan has spoken out about the fight to Entertainment Tonight.

Aniston got engaged to boyfriend Justin Theroux in August after dating him for more than a year. But she's kept her ring a secret -- until now.

Check out the first look at her large diamond ring in the E! News video above. According to E!, Aniston has been hiding the ring from the public by turning it upside down. But it looks like she's ready to show the world her rock.

During the weekend, while visiting fiancee Theroux in New Mexico, she reached up to tenderly touch his cheek with her left hand and the ring was in plain view.

What do you think of Aniston's diamond?

Sarah Palin served lunch at a rally for republican senatorial candidate Kirk Adams in August.

Former Alaska governor and republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin told People.com she is writing a fitness book.

Photos of Palin, 48, looking very thin have caused a stir online, reports People. But Palin insists she is just fine, telling People in an email, "Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort foods!"

Would you take fitness advice from Sarah Palin?

And while we're on the subject of fitness and appearances....have you seen the latest photos of Matthew McConaughey?

Check them out at People.com. McConaughey has dropped 30 pounds for his next role in "The Dallas Buyers' Club," the true story of a man with AIDS.

See the photos of the "Magic Mike" star's transformation.

It's got to be tough for McConaughey to eat so little while his wife Camila is pregnant with their third child and eating for two.

Lady Gaga gets sick on stage

Posted by Kristi Palma October 9, 2012 07:40 AM



Two of the biggest names in music have gotten sick on stage in the last week or so.

Do Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga have the same stomach bug?

We don't know. What we do know is the Beebs threw up on stage during the kick off to his "Believe" tour in Glendale Arizona Sept. 29.

And now Lady Gaga vomited in front of fans during a show in Barcelona while singing her hit "Edge of Glory." In the video, you'll see one of her dancers try to shield the star as she doubled over. But, like Bieber, she handled it like a pro and the show went on.

Her reaction? Here's her tweet to fans:

Was praying nobody saw but actually its quite a good laugh if u need one! Check out Lady PukeGA doing Swan "Vomit" Lake.

And then this:

I still hit my routine mom!! :) Thank goodness for the Dorchester...i need some tea ,i think i just cried a little watching that.

This after Lady Gaga responded to criticism about her weight.

We hope you feel better, Lady G!

Chris Brown addresses breakup, Rihanna rumors with 'drunk' video

Posted by Rachel Raczka October 5, 2012 09:57 AM

Chris "I just care too much" Brown released a video explaining the current situation surrounding his love life. Brown announced his split from girlfriend Karrueche Tran on Thursday and was spotted canoodling at a New York City nightclub with ex, Rihanna, earlier this week. The "Don't Judge Me" singer stars in a "Taxicab Confessions"-style clip by L.A. based director David Alan entitled "The Real Chris Brown" on Vimeo (Editor's note: This video contains explicit language), where he explains his predicament, interspliced with video footage of his rendezvous with both ladies.

"I'm a little drunk so I'mma be honest," C-Breezy tells the camera. "When you share history with somebody and then you tend to fall in love with somebody else, it's kind of difficult ... Is there such thing as loving two people? I don't know. I don't know if that's possible. But for me, I feel like that."

Rihanna admitted to still loving her ex in an August interview with Oprah despite their violent past, for which Brown is currently under probation. No official word from her camp regarding the video yet.

Thoughts on Brown's video? Are extremely public post-breakup over-shares becoming a trend for the newly single celeb set? Should Brown and Kristen Stewart commiserate together? Comment here.

Oprah tops Forbes list of Hollywood’s Highest-Paid Women

Almost a year after "The Oprah Winfrey Show" ended its 25th season, Oprah is still finding a way to bring in more money than any other woman in Hollywood. With her OWN Network, her monthly magazine, "O," and her Sirius Satellite radio station, Oprah Radio, Oprah topped the Forbes list of Hollywood's Highest-Paid Women with $165 million in earnings between May 2011-2012.

Pop super stars Britney Spears and Taylor Swift trailed not-so-closely behind with their respective earnings. Spears brought in a cool $58 million from her 2012 tour and "Femme Fatale" album sales, while Swift took the third spot, reeling in $57 million, after a year full of "Speak Now" tour dates and countless hit singles. Spears's figure was calculated before the 30-year-old singer signed a $15 million deal to join the judging panel on "The X-Factor," but even with the monetary plus, her earnings still pale in compression to Winfrey's jaw-dropping 9-figures.

Who do you think will top the list next year? Will Oprah remain No. 1? Comment here.

Anne Hathaway ties the knot

Posted by Kristi Palma October 1, 2012 08:14 AM

It was a "Devil Wears Prada" wedding weekend!

Anne Hathaway, 29, got hitched Saturday to fiancee Adam Shulman, 31, at a private estate in California.

Check out her custom-designed Valentino gown. She wore a 1920s-inspired headband attached to a veil. More than 150 friends and family attended the affair.

Read more about her wedding at People.com.

What do you think of Hathaway's gown and headband?

Meanwhile, Hathaway's costar in "The Devil Wears Prada," Stanley Tucci, threw a formal wedding ceremony with new bride Felicity Blunt, reports E! News. (The couple actually married two months ago.)

However, it looks like neither of the brides wore Prada. While Hathaway wore Valentino, Blunt wore Nanette Lepore.

Blunt is the sister of Emily Blunt (another "Devil Wears Prada" alum!), who is married to "The Office" star John Krasinski. Emily Blunt served as her sister's bridesmaid. "Boardwalk Empire" actor Steve Buscemi was Tucci's best man. (Photo credit: Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week)

Justin Bieber throws up on stage

Posted by Kristi Palma October 1, 2012 07:11 AM

Justin Bieber had a stomach malfunction during the kick-off to his "Believe" tour in Glendale, Ariz. Saturday.

It all began when he doubled over and vomited in the middle of the song "Out of Town Girl."

The show went on. And Nicki Minaj was probably glad she performed with Bieber via taped performance on a video screen during their duet, "Beauty and the Beat." That's because the Beebs rushed off stage abruptly during the song, halting the show.

Read more about Bieber's onstage sickness, courtesy of USA Today.

Bieber still managed to complete a 21-song set, saying to his fans, "Will you love me even though I'm throwing up on stage?" reports E! in the above video. That wasn't all he had to say about the mishap.

Bieber, 18, tweeted this to his fans after the show:

So what was the cause of the mid-show hurl?

We have only this tweet as an answer:

We hope Bieber is feeling better. And...do you think the show should go on if an artist is ill on stage?
