Ian Somerhalder & Nikki Reed Are Married

Behold, I bring you tidings of great joy about celebrities you probably don’t care or know that much about! That’s right, Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder and Twilight actress Nikki Reed have joined in blood-sucking matrimony and are now married after a whirlwind 9 months relationship. LOL, congrats?

The 36-year-old Vampire Diaries hunk and the 26-year-old Twilight actress got married Sunday at sunset in Santa Monica, Calif., E! News confirms. Hours before getting married, Somerhalder tweeted, “most beautiful morning ever…”

In a loving gesture, E! News can confirm that in lieu of gifts, wedding guests were asked to donate to the newlywed’s animal rescue charity.

“In a loving gesture”? Okey doke. Anyway, Somerhalder and Reed announced their engagement back in January, roughly six months after they started dating (which in and of itself may have overlapped with Reed’s marriage to some bro named Paul who was once on American Idol).

Something tells me this marriage isn’t meant to last very long, but again, who knows? Stranger things have happened! Maybe they’ll live together in animal charity bliss! (In all seriousness, I love animals and would donate to that cause in a hot second). Mazel, vampires!

Lea Michele Has “Written” Another Book

lea michele

It seems like only yesterday that former Glee star Lea Michele was shilling “her” first book, Brunette Ambition. Actually, it was 2013 and the book – which was “part memoir,  part how-to and part style guide” came out and I guess did well enough to warrant a second book because here we are, awaiting the release of You First: Journal Your Way To Your Best Life. And yes, that’s a serious title. Just look – Lea announced it on Twitter and encouraged all the peons still mourning Rachel/Finn to buy it.

I mean, damn, can you usually pre-order books 6 months in advance? That seems a bit… extreme. Y’all know Lea is my arch enemy, so I cannot support this, but has anyone read her first book?

Brad Pitt Busted His Face Walking In Flip Flops

bruised face

Don’t mind Brad Pitt‘s busted face there. Sorry to disappoint you, but he hasn’t been filming the sequel to Fight Club or anything, he’s just clumsy as hell, apparently, and doesn’t know how to walk in flip flops. Don’t get me started on why he was wearing flip flops to begin with, we just need to deal with what’s before us. Brad is injured, but that didn’t stop him from attending the 3rd annual Light Up the Blues concert in Hollywood on Saturday night.

“This is what happens when you try to run up steps in the dark, with your arms full, wearing flip flops,” Pitt said in a statement to PEOPLE. “Turns out if you then try to stop your forward momentum with your face, the result is road rash.

“Regardless, I wasn’t going to miss the Autism Speaks benefit the night after – wonderful people and I was honored to be a part of this important event.”

Unless you are at the beach, there is no damn reason for a grown man or woman to be wearing flip flops. Especially not in a major metropolitan city. It’s filthy and disgusting. Also, you might trip and bust your face up like Brad did. Learn from him.

Jay Z Says Tidal Isn’t Failing And Is Here To Stay


About a month ago, Jay Z held some huge press conference with the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna by his side to announce the launch of his own streaming music service, Tidal. He claimed (and still claims) that the service is “for the fans” and for the artists, who are often ripped off by the likes of record labels, iTunes, etc. Your $19.99 monthly premium membership fee would get you “high quality” streaming (which many have tested and reported that they detected no difference between Tidal’s and Spotify’s, which is half the price at $9.99 per month) and some “exclusive” perks like tracks only released via the service and early access concert tickets, etc.

If that all sounds pretty shitty and you’d rather spend your hard earned cash on anything else, you’re not alone. Critics and fans have panned that shit since its release, and just today Jay finally felt compelled to speak out and defend Tidal, insisting it’s here to stay. I warn you, this is a long one, so stay strong, and I’ll see you on the other side.

Whew. Did you make it? Good job. Now how long do we think it is before Tidal folds?

Kanye West Made Kim Kardashian Accept Bruce Jenner As Transgender

Bruce Jenner confirmed months of speculation on Friday during a 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer, telling the world that he is transgender and is “for all intents and purposes… a woman”. While the response has been overwhelmingly positive from both the public and his friends and family (or so some of them would like to pretend – looking at you, Kris), one person took it a bit harder than others, and that’s Kim Kardashian. That is, until her husband, Kanye West, really opened her eyes by dropping some profound philosophic truth (about himself, natch) on her.

From Variety:

Bruce Jenner said that Kim Kardashian didn’t know what to think about his transition to a woman after catching him one day in a dress. But then something changed.

“You know what really turned me around?” Jenner recalls the reality TV star asking. “Kanye.”

The rapper, who recently married Kardashian, had the following advice for her:

“I can be the most successful person in the world…I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, which I am…but I’m nothing if I can’t be me…if I can’t be true to myself.”

Because Kanye having the freedom to be an egocentric maniac is definitely the same as being trapped in the wrong body and suffering gender dysphoria because of it. But whatever! She got there in the end, I guess.

Bobby Brown Wants Guardianship Over Bobbi Kristina’s Estate

bobby brown

Things are still very touch-and-go in Bobbi Kristina‘s world. Despite statements from her father, Bobby Brown, that she was awake and “watching him”, the truth is that she’s still very much in the medically induced coma doctors placed her in back at the end of January, when she was found face-down in her bathtub at home. It’s incredibly sad, and chances are she’s just not going to make it, but before the Houston and Brown families can come to an agreement on what to do, Bobby wants to get his hands on his daughter’s estate.

From NBC 11:

Bobby Brown has filed for guardianship over Bobbi Kristina Brown’s estate.

Bobbi Kristina, the 22-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, was placed in a medically-induced coma after being found unresponsive in a Roswell home on Jan. 31. Last month, she was moved from Emory University Hospital to DeKalb Medical Center.

David W. Long, the attorney for Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother Cissy Houston released a statement saying:

This is a family matter involving sensitive information. We hope to resolve this in a manner that is respectful of Bobbi Kristina’s sensitive health information. The Houston family has always looked out for the best interest of Bobbi Kristina Brown. The family has done so all of her life and will continue to do so. We trust that others have the same objective.

Yikes. Please do not let this man have ANY control over anything of Bobbi’s. He was barely there throughout her life and I don’t trust him not to squander every last penny she owns. And why would he be filing for this now? Yes, I know it could be that both sides of the family are starting to accept her fate, but it just seems seriously tacky. I know it has to be dealt with, but I think Bobby’s a sleazeball and this whole thing is a mess.

Kim Richards Checked Herself Into Rehab

kim richards

In an effort to save face a bit, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmate Kim Richards has decided to check herself into rehab. The eye-opener? Being arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct and kicking a police officer did it, as if that’s surprising. Something tells me this is a ploy to escape any kind of prosecution, but who knows.

From TMZ:

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ, Kim is in a live-in facility in Malibu which specializes in substance abuse. We’re told she made the decision after consulting with family.

We’re told she will stay at the rehab facility “as long as it takes.”

As long as it takes for the public to move on to other news and forget this happened? As long as it takes for police to drop the charges against her?

Anyhoo, I guess good luck. Get your life together, girl.
