Rosie O’Donnell suffered a heart attack in 2012, which was the wake-up call she needed to get her life together and start living a bit healthier. While she was trying to do the classic diet and exercise routine, the weight wasn’t coming off so she got a gastric sleeve in July 2013 and now, she’s 50 lbs thinner – and still losing!
Rosie posted the photo on her Twitter page earlier this week, captioning the before-and-after by saying that she can finally see the difference – and of course, who wouldn’t? 50 lbs is a big deal, and it’s great for her -and her family – that she’s getting healthier so that she can be around to enjoy more of their lives with them.

Oh shit, something’s going down over at GOOP headquarters, y’all. Our Lady of $500 Sweaters is in a bit of a pickle, as the company’s CEO, Seb Bishop, quit abruptly last week, arousing suspicion that something’s not kosher in Gwyneth Paltrow‘s overpriced, whitewashed wonderland.
From the New York Post:
Our source said: “Seb was ready to move his wife, Heidi, and their children from London, and had even been looking at properties in Los Angeles, but then he abruptly quit.” The source added, “There is speculation that he and Paltrow disagreed on the direction of Goop, partly that she used the Web site as a vehicle for her personal life, and the ‘conscious uncoupling’ announcement.”
Paltrow rep Stephen Huvane confirmed Bishop is leaving Goop, but denied he abruptly quit in a disagreement with Paltrow.
He told us, “It’s not completely true. Seb is still with Goop, but has decided not to relocate his family to Los Angeles. He will be transitioning out over time until a replacement is named.”
However, someone at US Weekly is sorta calling bullshit on that story.
“A week and a half ago, he abruptly resigned from GOOP,” the insider tells Us. “It’s really suspicious — I think something weird is going on with GOOP.”
Something weird is always going on with GOOP. Isn’t that sort of the premise upon which it’s based. It’s weird that someone thinks your spring wardrobe should cost $25,000. It’s weird that someone advocates dish towels – PIECES OF CLOTH YOU WILL LITERALLY DRY YOUR HANDS AND DISHES ON – should cost hundreds of dollars, and that that’s a sound investment. It’s weird that you would announce the end of your PERSONAL relationship in your BUSINESS newsletter. I mean, what? I don’t know anything about this Seb guy, but he seems pretty smart to get out while he could.

Ooookay, wait just a rootin’ tootin’ second here. Kris Jenner claims that there’s some band of “pranksters” out there who are purposely planting false information about the Kardashian/Jenner clan in the media in an effort to sabotage the family, apparently. If that’s not self-righteous enough for you, she thinks it’s someone in that prankster group that started the whole Kris Jenner sex tape “rumour”, as well.
Sources close to Kris tell us, the matriarch is convinced she and the rest of the Kardashian family are the victims in an elaborate prank plot — and she believes the people behind it are the same people who spread rumors she was in a sex tape.
We’re told the group is responsible for a string of pranks against the family — planting bogus stories about the sex tape, Kris dating a rapper, Kim’s wedding, Rob Kardashian in rehab, and more.
Even crazier … Kris believes one of the pranksters has been impersonating her to a tee, booking fake photoshoots and fancy restaurant reservations around the country.
We’re told the group booked a Kardashian reservation at every Nobu in America last week — and Kris only found out when her phone rang off the hook with requests to confirm. We’re told Kris has now given her favorite restaurants code words to verify Kardashian reservations from here out.
I mean… I guess it’s possible or something? I know people have a lot of spare time on their hands and do stupid shit, but creating fake restaurant reservations? What would be the point, honestly? Also, in re: the sex tape, she wouldn’t have been so worked up about it/continued talking about it if it didn’t exist. How can someone blackmail you over something they don’t have? Think about it, Kris – you’re your own worst “prankster”.

Celebrity mugshots are always sort of hilarious (depending on the person in them), but there’s nothing funny about Chris Brown‘s latest set. Some CBS affiliate, WUSA9, got hold of the photos from Brown’s arrest last October in DC – the reason he’s sat in a cushy Virginia jail cell at the moment awaiting trial later this month.
He looks… well, a goddamn mess, frankly. What’s going on with the hair? What’s going on with all of it? He looks like a junkie, to be honest… and like jail’s a good place for him to be. Unfortunately, even if he’s convicted, the maximum sentence is 180 days (until he’s back on the street, undoubtedly commits under crime and ends up straight back there).

Hayden Panettiere‘s character on Heroes was a cheerleader with the power of cell rejuvination, apparently, which sounds pretty awesome. I never watched the original show, but since there’s going to be a reboot later this year – Heroes Reborn – I thought I might get a chance to see her reprise the role. Not so, because she wasn’t actually invited back.
From US Weekly:
“It was a shock to me,” the Nashville star says, adding that she found out about the reboot through the grapevine. “In fact, I believe I became privy to that through my cousin. She sent me a text message and told me about it.”
“I mean, we had nothing, nothing to do with it,” she says of the reboot. “It will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent that.”
When asked to speculate over what Claire has been up to, Panettiere responds with a simple “Who knows?” She explains, “It’s a little bit of an interesting feeling because you go, ‘That was our show, our home, our family,’ something that we had a major part in creating,” adding that it would hurt if the reboot were to bring back its original characters.”
“I mean, I hope that they don’t have somebody else playing our characters,” she quips, adding, “that would be a little dagger in the heart. But, you never know. I wish them success in it, for sure.”
Huh. I bet it kinda sucks that she wasn’t invited back, but maybe that’s because she’s doing Nashville? That’s all I can think of. Or maybe the reboot doesn’t have much of a budget so they’re going to bring in unknowns so they can pay them less? I suppose there’s always the chance that they don’t like her, but I dunno, I’ve never read any horror stories about Hayden, so I’m not sure how true that would be!
