Sarah Hyland discusses her recent breakup with abusive boyfriend

sarah hyland

Sarah Hyland made a lucky escape from her longtime former boyfriend, Matthew Prokop, earlier this year when she broke up with him AND got a restraining order. Now, for the first time, she’s shed some light on how she got through such a tough situation, and while she never named Prokop by name, it was a poignant interview.

What a messed up situation. Abuse like that is so difficult to get out of, and it’s so good that Sarah had the resources, support and strength to make it through such a difficult experience. Here’s hoping she’s able to find some peace and safety away from that abusive asshole. Now if only he was prosecuted…

Katie Holmes is fearless now

I don’t really know what Katie Holmes ever feared in life, but whatever it was, it’s gone. She’s got no more fears! She’s ready to take on the world and whatever comes with it!

“I don’t have any fear now, I don’t have a lot of rules for myself, and I don’t take myself that seriously,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s cover story.

And when it comes to her career, “I feel ready for new challenges,” she says.

Also, she’s tired of talking about Tom Cruise and will not let her divorce from that crazy Scientologist define her for the rest of her life.

“I don’t want that moment in my life to define me, to be who I am,” she says of her post-split persona. “I don’t want that to be what I’m known as. I was an actor before, an actor during and an actor now.”

Well, you were never a very good actor, which is, I suppose, why people paid more attention to the whole relationship aspect, but you know. I don’t mind Katie Holmes – she’s about as exciting about watching paint dry, but there’s nothing wrong with her, per se. It’s good to hear she’s doing well, I suppose?

Taylor Swift is taking over the world

Taylor Swift only released her new album, 1989, on Monday, but she’s already basically killing all your favs and then some. She sold over half a million albums in under 24 hours, and considering how many people illegally downloaded it (thereby not counting in the sales), that’s AMAZING.

Definitely well deserved since, as I said the other day, it’s an EXCELLENT pop album and is already in my Top 5 albums of the year, for sure. I haven’t met a single person – TSwift fan or not – who doesn’t absolutely love it. This might be the most popular album of the year (and the only one to go platinum, since no other albums have so far).

Amanda Bynes 5150 hold extended for another month

Amanda Bynes was taken in on another 5150 hold last month after exhibiting more than her fair share of strange and possibly dangerous behaviour while in New York. While they initially extended the hold for just two weeks, it’s now been extended for another month and her parents have a conservatorship over her finances yet again.

Amanda Bynes‘ parents quietly went to court and got a conservatorship … after telling the judge their daughter has spent “alarming amounts” of money by purchasing jewelry for strangers.

Amanda’s folks filed legal docs — obtained by TMZ – in which they say Amanda is a “substantial risk” to herself and others. They cite her erratic behavior, including her DUI arrest last month, her shoplifting and her bizarre and sometimes violent conduct in NYC.

The documents also reveal Amanda is blowing through a shocking amount of her savings. Her parents say her net worth is currently $5,747,703.36. Of that, $2.8 mil is real property — homes. Her parents say Amanda’s only income is from her rental property — $144,768 last year.

Amanda’s parents say the gift purchases have been “extensive.” It sounds like she’s going into stores, buying stuff and just handing it out on the street.

The conservatorship takes a back seat to Amanda’s involuntary commitment. TMZ broke the story … her doctors just got a 30-day extension which allows them to hold her in a Pasadena psychiatric facility.

Eek, it just goes from bad to worse with this girl, doesn’t it? Unfortunately I feel like a 5150 hold is the only thing keeping Amanda safe at the moment, and frankly, if she’s hell bent on not taking her medication to control her mental illness, I don’t see her ever recovering (though I do hope she does – still rooting for her!).

Daniel Radcliffe is actually a pretty good rapper

I feel like sometimes we don’t really give Daniel Radcliffe enough credit. We just sorta see him as the kid who played Harry Potter and that’s it, but he actually seems like a pretty decent guy (and an alright actor, too – not amazing, but not offensively bad). He also happens to be a pretty excellent rapper, as it turns out.

While being interviewed on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Daniel mentioned what a big fan he is of hip hop and how he learned all the words to an Eminem song back in the day. Then he proceeded to show off his skills.

Okay, I’m kinda impressed, I’ll admit it. Gotta love a little DRad!

Beyonce is releasing her own fashion line with Topshop

As if Beyonce hadn’t taken over enough of the world already, she’s now teamed up with Topshop in a 50/50 venture that will see her release a line of sports leisure apparel and streetwear probably right in time for Fall ’15.

“This is not a collaboration. This is about building a brand and building a business—a separate, proper business, with separate overhead and a separate office,” Topshop owner Sir Philip Green told WWD. “Basically, when she was in London in February we arranged to get together. We started talking generally, about doing something together. We’ve been looking at that [athletic] sector for a while. It’s something we need to be in. Based on what she does, how she works out, the conversation got into that category. We started getting into proper conversation in May or June, as to how it would work. It took six or eight weeks to put a deal together. On Friday, Beyoncé came to our office for the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle.”

So why did Bey do this? Well, she’s always liked Topshop’s “fashion credentials” and “forward thinking”. Kewl?

There’ll be items including shoes and accessories across sports, dance and fitness and Topshop will sell the items online and in stores. If you can get a hold of a single piece, that is – you know people will shit themselves over this nonsense.

Kanye West let North West ruin an Hermes purse for Kim’s birthday

Kim Kardashian recently turned howeverthehellmany years old, and for her birthday, she got a one-of-a-kind gift from husband Kanye West and more importantly, from their daughter North. They gave her a very fancy, artist-designed Hermes bag that cost thousands and thousands of dollars… only really it was North who had painted all over it and Kim is just dumb.

From People:

“Kanye had a box, a purse, this Hermès purse, and I opened it and I thought it was so cool. It was all painted really cool and then there was my computer and it said, ‘Press Play,’ ” Kardashian shares.

“I pressed play and my daughter was sitting outside painting the purse,” she explains. “I thought it was an artist that painted the purse, some custom thing. I thought it was some new artist, and it was my daughter. It was amazing and I have it all on video.”

Yes, you read that right. Kim Kardashian is unable to tell the difference between a custom designed bag from a real designer and something her 1-year-old threw some paint all over. God bless us everyone.

Also, only the Kardashian/West family would ever think it’s wonderful to deface a four figure bag with an infant’s art skills.
