Christina Aguilera is one of the original judge’s on NBC’s WILDLY (and inexplicably) popular shows, The Voice. You know the drill: people who are pre-screened sing to blind judges, who, if they like what they hear, push their button and spin their chair around. Then at the end of it all, someone is crowned the winner and they fade off into obscurity forevermore. Christina has been on and off the show since the beginning, taking a few seasons off here and there to pursue personal projects, but now that she’s back, it seems like the staff isn’t all that happy about it and they want her gone.
“No one wants Christina to come back as a judge on season nine of The Voice,” the network insider tells Radar exclusively.
As Radar previously reported, the 34-year-old “Fighter” singer angered production staff in the beginning of the season with her antics, which included being late to set and constantly fighting with the other judges, particularly Adam Levine.
Now that Season Eight is wrapped and a winner has been declared, the source says that Aguilera’s behavior did not improve over the weeks of competition.
“She was really difficult to work with this season. Tensions between her and Adam were consistent, but she also just had a really bad attitude,” says the source.
“She showed up late a lot, took forever for hair and makeup and was just very demanding.”
Apparently the crew wants Gwen Stefani or Shakira back because they were “a lot easier to work with”, which is actually kinda surprising, at least when it comes to Gwen, who strikes me as a MASSIVE diva (though a flawless one, obviously). Huh. Surprises around every corner.
Kim Kardashianand Kanye West actually made it through one year of marriage! They celebrated their anniversary yesterday – an occasion that was apparently marked with a vow renewal ceremony at the Eiffel Tower, which Kanye rented out. But it was also celebrated with Kris Jenner’s posting of Kimye’s awkward as shit first dance after becoming married back in 2014. It’s… something else.
Frankly, it’s not actually much of a dance at all, but hey, what are you gonna do? Kim did her little sway in place thing, Kanye… was doing something. I don’t know, I’ve just seen better when it comes to wedding dances. But hey, they look happy – and they made it this far! That’s worth celebrating, right?
In what’s likely the most ridiculous news I’ve heard this week (Josh Duggar excluded, of course), apparently some judge has ruled that Nick Loeb, ex-fiance of Sofia Vergara, has ruled that he has the right to sue her over those frozen embryos that he wants to turn into babies against her wishes – oh, and against the contract HE SIGNED HIMSELF. What the fuck?
Vergara’s ex was granted permission today to file an amended lawsuit allowing him to seek custody of the two female embryos that were created from his sperm and Vergara’s eggs while they were still in a relationship.
The revised complaint is the first time Loeb is seeking custody, and the paperwork includes a new claim that Vergara, 42, breached an oral agreement to create the embryos and bring them to term via a surrogate. “He does believe they are his daughters,” Loeb’s lawyer Christina Goodrich explained on Tuesday.
Today, Vergara’s lawyer Fred Silberberg told the Santa Monica, Calif., court that Goodrich took too long to file this argument. “[The] plaintiff is using this lawsuit to continue to attack [Vergara] in the press and continue to have his own visibility in the press,” he said.
As Vergara and Loeb signed a consent form that required they both have to agree before anything can be done with the embryos, Silberberg added, “There is no legal issue.”
I really need this asshole to get a grip on reality. Nick Loeb isn’t fighting so hard to save these frozen embryos because he’s desperate to be a father. If that was the case, he could go out and adopt or get another woman pregnant immediately. He’s doing this because he’s bitter that he’s lost her and that she’s moved on, and this is his way of trying to make her life a living hell. Way to go, dude. You win the grand prize in pathetic behaviour for today.
Oh, and you KNOW he’s also the type of douchebag to – if in some universe he got his own way, which he won’t – Loeb would be trying to hit her up for child support.
This weird thing always happens where, when a serious scandal is uncovered, all this proof that it was going on over the years is suddenly looked back upon and everyone’s like, “Oh shit, how did we not see this?” Such is the case with Josh Duggar, who molested a bunch of underage girls and is basically a complete and under shitbag. Turns out, he wasn’t all that secretive about his disgusting ways and on a 2008 episode of 19 Kids and Counting, he made a weird incest joke that – knowing what we know now – comes off is really, REALLY creepy.
I don’t even know what to say about this, to be honest. This man is disgusting, and the fact that he has a daughter is terrifying. I hope someone steps in before it’s too late. You don’t suddenly just “get over” it and start being a decent human being.
It was always pretty obvious that Katy Perry‘s split from Russell Brand wasn’t all that friendly, and it was also obvious that Russell asked for a divorcein a pretty messed up way: via a text message. Katy sang about it in her song ‘Ghost’ on the Prism album and has mentioned it once or twice in interviews before. And while a couple of years have passed out and both have moved on to new relationships, Katy and Russell are still pretty frosty.
CK: Have you spoken to Brand at all since your divorce?
KP: He hasn’t spoken to me since he texted me saying he was filing for divorce. I don’t want to talk about him — my songs will say what I need to say.
CK: You seem to have rebounded very strongly from heartbreak over the last several years. Are you stronger than ever?
KP: I’m one of those people that likes to be fearless. We bungee-jumped in New Zealand on one tour. We go to water-parks and do things like that because I have a little fearless invincibility streak in me. I don’t like to live in fear because that traps you and your voices. Fear is a control tactic in the world that is negative and depressing and I don’t want to be associated with it.
I mean, I don’t feel like that’s particularly rare. How many couples who divorce after a short time and that have no children together actually go on to become buddies? This relationship is old news, so I’m sure Katy would appreciate if people would stop asking her about it just as much as we’d prefer not to read about it.
I don’t think any of us were shocked as we were horrified to find out a couple of months ago that Chris Brown had actually fathered a child. His skills as a basic human being are questionable at best, so to imagine his involvement in raising a little girl was a special form of dread. He seems to have taken a vague interest in little Royalty, though, taking her with him on the red carpet and posting Instagram pictures with her. You know, real fathering.
Anyhow, of course this was going to get ugly – or uglier than it already is. Since Chris isn’t involved at all with Royalty’s mom (other than the time it took to get her pregnant), there’s obviously a lot of shit going on. Mainly, Chris apparently stopped paying child support and now Nia Guzman is taking him to court for what she’s owed and then some.
Multiple sources connected with the couple tell TMZ, Chris has been paying baby Royalty’s mom, Nia Guzman, the $2,500, but the gravy train stopped in March. Our Chris sources say he stopped paying because Nia demanded $15k a month, which he thinks is ridiculous.
We’re told Chris says Nia’s treating the baby like a winning lottery ticket, but she claims he’s being incredibly cheap and their daughter is suffering as a result.
We’re told Nia’s lawyer, Carl Moore, will be filing legal docs in the next 2 weeks demanding back child support and a huge monthly hike.
We’re hearing rumblings of settlement.
Oh, God. What a mess. I’m sorry, but regardless of what a dickhead he is and how much money he has, this is why women get bad names as gold diggers. Should Chris have to pay for his daughter? Yes, fine. Does ANY child need $15k a month? I think that’s debatable, to say the least. I dunno what to think of this one…
Most of you guys watch Game of Thrones right? I’m vaguely ashamed to admit that I was cruelly uneducated in the ways of Westeros until recently, when I binge-watched the entire first four seasons before Season 5 got underway. Now I’m up on what’s happening, and we can talk about these things as equals.
Season 5 has marked a serious departure for the series, as everyone has noted just how far off-book it’s been going, and I think that’s fine. HBO’s actualization of George R.R. Martin’s original story has become its own entity and allowed the books – well, what’s been written of them yet, anyway – to exist on their own. I don’t think either has to negate the others, though I know some people have their preferences.
Anyhow, this season has been absolutely ridiculous in ways I’m not sure I like. We’ve had Tyrion being dragged all over Essos on his journey to get to Daenerys, Dany’s inability to rule her kingdom all that well, Cersei’s grappling for power back in King’s Landing, Arya trying to learn how to become a skilled assassin, Sansa’s rape… I mean, it’s all over the place. And yet, I keep watching.
Here’s the preview for next week’s episode, if you’re curious about what’s to come.
What do you make of it all? Frankly, I really need Sansa to use the horror she’s been through to bite back, and from that small bit we see between her and Reek, it’s pointing towards that happening. Also, seeing Cersei (who I love to hate) getting her comeuppance is hilarious and totally delicious.
