Kim Kardashian has never really been a woman of words – at least not words anyone cared about hearing, that is. Still, she’s remained bizarrely silent since giving birth to
America’s Kanye West‘s baby on Saturday nearly 5 weeks ahead of schedule, making everyone that much more hungry for details about the nameless child. Well, you’re not getting any of those, and you’re not even really getting a statement from Kimmypie, but what you will get is a sentence she apparently wrote in an email, as dictated by Ryan Seacrest. TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT, PEOPLE!
From Ryan’s KIIS-FM show:
E! News’ Ken Baker phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to share that despite giving birth five weeks early, both baby and mom are healthy.
“This was not planned,” he explains. “It came on very quickly and when it was time for the baby to come, it was time for the baby to come.” Ken adds that the moment was so unexpected, “the whole family was [even] dispersed all over the place.”However, Ken confirms: “[The baby] is healthy and Kim is doing well … There’s a great sense of relief. Everyone is very happy for her and Kim is relieved [because] this was a very stressful time.”So now that her daughter is here, how does Kim feel about being a mom?Ryan shared he emailed her moments after she gave birth, saying, “Yay! Congrats my darling, you’re a mommy!” and that she responded: “Cant believe it! It’s so crazy!”
I love that Kim had time to get on email after giving birth. Because, you know, can’t miss those bids pouring in from People and US Weekly – gotta figure out which to sell the kid’s first pictures to, after all.
To be fair, I’m sure motherhood is “crazy”, but she’d better start believing it soon… unless of course the nanny’s are gonna raise this thing, which seems likely. That’s a random nanny, by the way, not The Nanny, Fran Drescher (though how great would that be?). I’ll show myself out.

Charlie Sheen threw (yet another) temper tantrum — this one about costar Selma Blair — and it was forceful enough to get her to leave. Cruel Intentions bitch is gonnnnnnnne. Nice going, dork. From EOnline:
Selma Blair will not be returning to FX’sAnger Management after a “heated battle” with Sheen, Lionsgate has confirmed.
“We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management and we wish her the very best,” the studio said in a statement.
Sheen no longer wanted to work with Blair, who plays his onscreen therapist, after she complained about his work ethic to the show’s executives, according to our sources.
Earlier in the week, our source, who admitted things had “gotten ugly” between the two stars, said that Sheen doesn’t have the exclusive right to fire anyone, but noted that the actor “certainly can make production impossible.”
Anger Management, which is currently shooting its second season, received a 90-episode order from FX after its first season, but has experienced a decline in the ratings in its sophomore outing.
And again, I ask, WHY DOES ANYONE WORK WITH CHARLIE SHEEN? Or even TALK to him?? You WILL get burned. Because he SUCKS.

Chris Brown is not going to back down when it comes to his inspirational graffiti art and this is a problem for his neighborhood. He and Justin Bieber are regular hellions, in terms of being dick neighbors, am I right? Okay, anyway, here’s the latest scoop from TMZ:
Chris Brown is firing back at the City of L.A. — claiming the gov. has NO RIGHT to force him to remove the graffiti art on the front of his L.A. home because it’s protected by the 1st Amendment.
Brown just filed an appeal with the city — telling officials the bill they’re trying to stick him with for having an “unpermitted” mural on the front wall of his Hollywood Hills home is pure B.S..
According to the legal documents, obtained by TMZ, Brown claims the city is wrongly trying to nail him for having an illegal “sign” — when the graffiti is art that “[enhances] the architectural and aesthetic features of the residential property.”
Translation — my artwork makes my house look dope, son!
Then Chris drops the constitutional bomb — arguing, “The murals are a reflection of [my] aesthetic taste and a reflection of free speech and expression protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.”
Brown’s case is now in the hands of the Dept. of Building and Safety’s board of appeals — and if they shut him down, he can bring the fight to L.A. County Superior Court.
In fact, there’s a chance … albeit a small chance … that Brown’s case could go all the way up to the Supreme Court if he’s not willing to back down.
You know, I’m SO GLAD that Chris Brown is standing up for himself. Thank God, right?

Edward Furlong isn’t very good at the whole, stop assaulting women thing. And I guess he’s just crazy about jail. He’s probably going to go back for his latest assault and vandalism extravaganza. From TMZ:
“Terminator 2″ star Edward Furlong has just been charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend and threatening her if she called the police … TMZ has learned.
35-year-old Furlong was arrested inside his ex’s West Hollywood home back in May on suspicion of violating a protective order she had obtained against him.
According to law enforcement, Furlong is accused of assaulting his ex during the incident, which is where the assault charge stems from.
In addition, Furlong has been charged with dissuading a witness by force or threat, as well as vandalism — for allegedly damaging her laptop and photo equipment during the dispute. All the charges are felonies.
Furlong has also been charged with disobeying a domestic restraining order … a misdemeanor.
If convicted, Furlong faces up to 4 years in state prison. He’s due back in court July 1.
What the hell is wrong with this guy? Hey, Eddie,

Katy Perry has her first Vogue cover shoot and with it, a lengthy interview about all things Perry. And all things Perry include her 14 month marriage to David Lynch BFF, Russell Brand. Both she and Mr. Brand have discussed their marriage before. But in this interview, Ms. Perry gets a little…ominous. Gotta bring out your A-list material for Vogue, right?
He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.
Ominous statement. Also, who the f-ck asks for a divorce via text? Dante’s gonna open up a whole new circle for people who ask for divorce via text.
There were signs of disrespect on Mr. Brand’s part for his wife and for their marriage. For example, Ms. Perry recalls a particular incident:
[He was] hysterical in some ways. Until he started making jokes about me and he didn’t know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows. So. Hysterical to a point. I mean, I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could. You saw that in the movie.
Ms. Perry hints that the reason for their divorce may be a lot deeper, and possibly darker, than what we think it is. She reveals,
At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, I can’t handle the equalness. He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting. I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day.
I let go and I was like: This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me. So I have moved on from that.
Wow. What could she mean by “the real truth”? It must be a real big one or she wouldn’t protect him. And whatever the secret is, she made it clear that it doesn’t have anything to do with her. It’s his issue. We’ve heard rumors that Brand cheated on her, but it sounds like this is more than that. It sounds Russell Brand relapsed into his sex addiction. He wrote a book that detailed his addiction to sex. This isn’t like “hardee har har he bangs lots of women it’s what he does”. It was a serious, dark problem that could have destroyed his career. He explains his addiction in My Booky Wook, via The Guardian:
Many people are sceptical about the idea of what I like to call “sexy addiction”, thinking it a spurious notion, invented primarily to help Hollywood film stars evade responsibility for their priapic excesses. But I reckon there is such a thing. Addiction, by definition, is a compulsive behaviour that you cannot control or relinquish, in spite of its destructive consequences. And if my life proves nothing else, it demonstrates that this formula can be applied to sex just as easily as it can be to drugs or alcohol, both of which I know more than a bit about.
He stayed at the KeyStone clinic to treat his “sexy addiction”.
It’s hard to get an exact number on how many addicts relapse. Given what we’ve seen happen though in the Entertainment Industry, we’ve seen certain people relapse quite a bit. So I wouldn’t be surprised if Brand’s (alleged) cheating was more than that; I wouldn’t be surprised if he relapsed and his addiction to sex is what ended their marriage.
But this is purely speculation on my part.

Old Hollywood has some of the best gossip stories. Thanks to the internet, many classic movie stars were able to escape potentially career-damaging rumors and blunders. Can you imagine Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin with twitter accounts? Sweet fancy moses, how entertaining would a drunk Dean Martin be on twitter? And you thought Amanda Bynes was a twitter tyrant? Sinatra would @ anyone who said anything bad about him with mafia threats.
Ava Gardner was a huge movie star whose downfall was men and alcohol. She died broke in 1988 and in her last effort to make money, hired someone to write about her love life. Unfortunately, the writer died, but the tapes he used to write the book (presumably, tapes of him interviewing Ms. Gardner) have been found (wow, this never happens) and the book, Ava Gardner: The Secret Conversations is finally done.
National Enquirer has some highlights:
Her first husband was Mickey Rooney who she revealed had the nickname Mickey Hard-On. She quotes Rooney as saying, “I wanted to f-ck you the moment I saw you.” Gardner was an 18-year-old virgin at the time, and told Evans, “I was shocked. He’d screw anything that moved.”
He even cheated on Ava – then one of the most glamorous women in Hollywood — within the first months of their marriage while she was in the hospital having her appendix out, RadarOnline noted.
An affair with billionaire aviator movie mogul Howard Hughes followed.
Ava then married and divorced band leader Artie Shaw who she called a “bully” and then simultaneously dated Frank Sinatra and Robert Mitchum, both of whom were married at the time.
She said she was “crazy about” Mitchum but when she told him she was also seeing the Chairman of the Board, he told her, “Get into a fight with him, and he won’t stop until one of you is dead.” Not wanting Sinatra to think that he was competition, Mitchum stepped out of the way. Sinatra left his wife and he and Gardner wed. They had one of the most tumultuous marriages in Hollywood history, and divorced in 1957. It was her last marriage.
Numerous affairs followed including a brutal one with George C. Scott. While co-starring in 1966?s The Bible: In The Beginning, Scott beat her up so badly, Gardner had to be hospitalized.
And because of the times, George C. Scott avoided becoming Chris Brown. But people were much more cavalier about hitting women back then:
Ava’s co-stars in 55 Days in Peking, Charlton Heston and David Niven would’ve LIKED to slug her but didn’t. Ava was habitually late and drunk on set causing delay after delay to the epic.
Fantastic. Check out the photos of these men Gardner bedded, plus the two who wanted to hit her. Oh, Hollywood!
