Russell Brand has thoughts on Renee Zellweger’s new face

russell brand

Renee Zellweger disappeared for a couple years and when she came back, she had a brand new face. Crazy, right? She says it’s just because she’s living a healthier lifestyle now, and while most people with a working brain know that’s total bullshit, Russell Brand doesn’t care either way – he thinks it’s all down to feminism and everyone needs to leave her alone.

Say what you will about Russell’s approach, but I love him, and he makes a valid point. Duh, Renee Zellweger is in the public eye and under a ridiculous amount of pressure to stay youthful and perfect and blah blah blah (as you remember, my issue was more with the lying about it than the doing it, but that’s neither here nor there) – and pointing out all the INSANE amount of coverage this has received really brings it home just how nuts we are as a society, myself included.

However, side note: do you think Russell is back on the drugs? I know he’s generally pretty excitable, but he seems slightly manic in this video…

Lamar Odom won’t sign Khloe Kardashian’s divorce papers

khloe kardashian lamar odom

Khloe Kardashian finally did the smart thing and rid herself of her cheating crackhead of a husband, Lamar Odom, sometime last year. However, now that she’s trying to make things official and get a divorce, he’s refusing to sign the papers and in fact has gone completely off the radar and hasn’t been in touch with anyone for weeks. Uh oh.

From People:

The former NBA player, 34, isn’t making it easy for the reality star, 30, to enter the next phase of her life. Odom has yet to file his own response to Kardashian’s initial divorce filing – and in fact, has not been seen or heard from in several weeks.

“He needs to sign papers and he won’t,” a source close to the Kardashians tells PEOPLE. “He disappears here and there, and she can’t find him. She just wants to move on.”

According to papers filed by a Los Angeles Superior Court Family judge on Oct. 9, Kardashian must now make a choice – either file a Request to Enter a Default, or a Request for Dismissal.

Request to Enter a Default is used either when a spouse who has been served fails to respond within 30 days, or the respondent spouse cannot be located.

A Request For Dismissal is used when one or both parties decide to essentially cancel the divorce filing altogether.

Dear God. I don’t know if Lamar is purposely being an asshole or he’s just drowned so far in his addiction now that he can’t see the light of day. I don’t know that it matters either way, really – she needs to get that shit done and over with and never have contact with him again. What a mess.

Tori Spelling is having a nervous breakdown

tori spelling

Tori Spelling was hospitalized over the weekend with ebola-like symptoms (which she believed was actually pneumonia), but now it seems like the issue is more mental than physical, or at least a combination of both – basically, she’s having a breakdown.

From TMZ:

Our sources tell TMZ … it all came to a head when Tori checked herself into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center over the weekend. We’re told her “Ebola scare” was all a ruse … “a lie” to cover up what we’re told is her crumbling personal life.

Our sources are consistent about the problems that have caused Tori to lose it:

Her marriage is dangerously on the rocks. We’re told Tori had a nuclear argument with Dean recently over a nanny he wanted to hire who she felt put the kids at risk. But the bigger problem — we’re told she’s telling people he’s skipping AA meetings and fears he’s close to drinking again. Tori’s biggest fear … alcohol is what Dean says caused him to cheat.

Tori and Dean are financially strapped if not flat broke. Candy is not helping her out financially, and they’ve blown through her $800K inheritance from Aaron Spelling. She’s freaking out that she’s turning 42 and believes her scripted career is over, and her reality career is shaky.

Tori is faking illness to the point she is actually making herself sick. The Ebola craziness was never real … but Tori created such drama around it, staying up days at a time and not eating … she made herself sick and her health is compromised.

One very close friend is trying to stage an intervention, telling TMZ, “I am hoping that shedding some light on it for all of her fans to read may actually lead her to seek some change in her life …kind of like David Hasselhoff watching the drunk video of himself eating a hamburger.”

Unfortunately, TMZ tends to be pretty spot on with stuff like that. Also, let’s put it in context with the caption Tori put with the above photo on her Instagram page:

This sick in hospital I finally see how quickly life can take it all away frm you. We all need 2 step up frm inside& go 4 it! W/our friends by our side. Sadly I’ve finally faced truth that 1 person will never be there 4 me #TrueTori

Damn. Homegirl is a mess. Sucks to see people suffering/not well under any circumstances, so hopefully she recovers (in whatever sense) soon.

Lena Dunham’s Green Hair: Hell Yes Or God No?

Lena+Dunham

No one divides people quite like Lena Dunham. She’s really one of those celebs that people either love or hate. Being on the cover of Vogue seemed to earn her more fans, after the whole photoshopping fiasco, but she’s still one of those celebs that people have very mixed feelings over. So I’m curious about what you all think about her new green hair, which she debuted on her Instagram:

What do we think: is it a “hell, yes” or a “God, no”? Personally, I think it actually suits her. It’s cute. I gotta say though, I actually really liked her platinum blonde hair, and had she just stuck with that, I wouldn’t have been mad. I’m not mad now, but I don’t know if it’s necessarily better. Of course, it’s her own damn hair and she can do whatever she wants with it, but let’s weigh in: hell yes, or God no?

No One Is Seeing Lindsay Lohan’s Play

Lindsay+Lohan

Lindsay Lohan has been starring in David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow and it’s been something of a disaster. And now, not even Oprah can save her from her dismal ticket sales. From the Daily News:

Lohan’s much-hyped arrival across the pond to star in a production of David Mamet’s “Speed-the-Plow” garnered the show press and drew audiences in the beginning, but now tickets for the play are on deep discount, nearly half off, starting at a measly 15 British pounds, or $24 here.

“Save 50% on tickets to ‘Speed-the-Plow’ starring Lindsay Lohan. Top price seats were £59.50, now just £29.75, saving you 50% when you book by Saturday,” is plastered on the homepage for West End Wilma, London’s equivalent to New York’s discount TKTS.

Sorry, Lohan, but LOLLLLL. Only $24 for a ticket? That’s pretty bad. And you know what? She deserves it. I feel no remorse over saying that. Yeah, she tried to get her shit together, but when you’re consistently late for rehearsals and can’t keep it together on stage, you deserve poor reviews and a drop in sales. I was rooting for her at one point, but now, I’m so over it. I don’t feel badly for her at all. I’m going to give her this:

you tried so hard star

I gotta say, I’m morbidly curious, and for $24, if the show were in the US, I would totally go see it. Would you?

What Do We Think Of Johnny Depp’s New Look?

johnny-depp-wolf

Johnny Depp can’t seem to make a movie unless he’s wearing a stupid outfit. Case in point, his latest getup for Disney’s Into the Woods, in which he plays the Big Bad Wolf, but looks like a Big Bad Pimp (above).

I mean, honestly, what is this? It’s so ridiculous it’s making me angry. I’ve just had it with Mr. Amber Heard‘s whimsy.

ANYWAY, there are three other covers of additional Into the Woods characters, including Meryl Streep as “The Witch.” It’s just as ridiculous. She looks like the enchanted tree from Pocahontas. (Yeah yeah yeah, I’m grumpy today.) Check ‘em out below.

Kim Kardashian Says She’s Gonna Make North West Get A Job

North+West

Kim Kardashian loves to spoil her daughterNorth West, but she claims that she’s gonna make her get to work as soon as she’s old enough. Yeah, right. I’m not buying this bullshit for a goddamn second. But anyway, here’s what she said, via E!:

I was saying that earlier to my friends, ‘I wonder what [North's] first job is gonna be.’ And they were like, ‘What? She’s gonna have a job?’ and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Of course she is. She will have to work for what she wants.’

Maybe she’ll be a designer. Who knows? It’s too early to tell.

Are you rolling your eyes yet? Want to roll them harder? Here she is claiming that her parents made her work for everything in life:

I saved up for this Dolce & Gabbana dress I really wanted, or like in high school these Prada shoes that my parents wouldn’t buy me. And I remember they were $400, and I had to save for the entire year to get them. We didn’t get anything, we had to get a job if we wanted it. So I was working in a clothing store and I would save and save.

What is this revisionist history bullshit? What is she even talking about? I’m not buying this goddamn story for one goddamn second. Am I annoyed? Yeah, absolutely. I don’t believe any of the shit she’s saying. Does anyone else?
