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.
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.
Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds were only married for a little less than three years (2008 to 2011), and they’ve both since moved on with different partners, had babies, yada yada. But for a while there, they were kind of an “It Couple” in Hollywood, and a lot of people just couldn’t understand why they broke up, for some reason. If you’re one of those people, you’re in luck! Scarlett has finally sorta kinda alluded to her relationship with Ryan, though not really directly or in any way that’ll tell you anything important.
“Acting is a very strange world to be co-existing in,” the Lucy star told the magazine. “It’s very volatile. There’s always going to be the more successful person. It’s related to rejection. Because actors, if they’re not having success, connect it directly to unpopularity — to the fact that nobody wants them.”
“[Marriage] takes a lot of work. It takes a man who’s not only confident in the love that you have for one another, but confident in what he has going on in his own career. He has to be in a field that’s completely different from yours,” she explained to Parade.
Well, duh. This is why most Hollywood marriages fail. Egos get in the way, jealousy springs up and it’s all a mess. This was never going to work out, but hey, that’s all right. They both seem to be doing just fine without each other.
After months and months of speculation (and seemingly endless weeks of promotion), Bruce Jenner came out as a woman during his 2-hour sit down interview with Diane Sawyer on Friday night. During the broadcast, he admitted that he found it difficult to talk about his true identity as he didn’t want to hurt anyone, and admitted he briefly considered suicide but ultimately decided not to, as he wanted to see how his story would end.
For now, he’s asked people to continue using “he” pronouns (hence the reason I haven’t switched to she), but either way, I think this was a really brave and important thing for Bruce to have done. Here’s how he describes his experience:
God’s looking down, making little Bruce. He’s looking down and he says, “Okay, what are we going to do with this one?” Make him a smart kid, very determined, and he gave me all these wonderful qualities. And then at the end when he’s just finishing, he goes, “Wait a second, we gotta give him something. Everybody has stuff in their life that they have to deal with, what are we going to give him?” And God looks down and chuckles a bit and goes, “Hey let’s give him the soul of a female and let’s see how he deals with that.”
So here I am stuck, and I hate that word a girl stuck in a guy’s body. I hate that terminology. I’m me. I’m me. I’m a person. This is who I am. I’m not stuck in anybody’s body, it’s just who I am as a human being. My brain is much more female than it is male. It’s hard for people to understand that but that’s what my soul is.
I look at it this way. Bruce always telling a lie. He’s lived a lie his whole life about who he is. And I can’t do that any longer.
While you’re doing that, take a gander at these celebrity outfits, and make your picks for who had the BEST, WORST, and most WTF look of the week. Here’s last week’s celebrity looks, in case you care. This week we’re seeing lots of wide-legged pants/pantsuits.
Here’s Renee Zellweger. It’s a very romantic look, to wear a lacy trench coat with a top knot. I’m always a fan of a good coat.
We can all agree that Adam Sandler seriously blows, right? It wasn’t always the case. He was funny in his day. He wasn’t my cup of tea, but I can recognize various forms of comedy and recognize talent when I see it. However, in the past 10 years or so, Sandler has gone so far downhill that the hill is no longer in sight and he must’ve fallen straight through to the center of the earth. It’s bad. Come on – Jack and Jill? Grown Ups? Don’t Mess with the Zohan? I could keep going but I think you get my point. The situation is not good – especially now that he’s managed to piss off the Native American community with his new travesty, The Ridiculous Six.
The movie is called “The Ridiculous Six” and is being produced just for Netflix. It’s described as a spoof on “The Magnificent Seven” … starring Sandler, Nick Nolte, Steve Buscemi, Dan Aykroyd, Jon Lovitz and Vanilla Ice.
But the spoofing went too far Wednesday, in the eyes of a dozen actors and actresses who walked off the set. Some of the offending jokes included female characters named Beaver’s Breath and No Bra — and a scene where an Apache woman urinates outdoors while smoking a peace pipe.
Netflix is defending the Sandler flick, saying it’s all a joke. A Netflix rep tells TMZ, “The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous.” The rep says it’s intended to be a satire of Westerns and the stereotypes popularized in the genre.
The rep adds … the diverse cast “is not only part of — but in on — the joke.”
This wasn’t the first day of filming. In fact, Loren Anthony — one of the pissed actors had previously tweeted how much he was enjoying the project. But after today’s walk out he said, “Today work was no bueno, my native women were disrespected and i walked off set.”
Uh… yikes. Nothing like a bunch of white bros lampooning another culture and not listening to ACTUAL native people when it comes to knowing when they’ve gone too far. This whole thing is going to be a mess, anyway. What the hell is Buscemi thinking being involved with this bullshit? Shut it down!
Is ABC not ranking in the ratings, like, ever or something? They’ve been pushing this Diane Sawyer 2-hour sitdown with Bruce Jenner so hard for the past couple of weeks, and thankfully the damn thing is on tomorrow night so we can stop hearing about it. In the latest promo, Bruce says the phrase “I want to know how this story ends” and frankly, so do I. Tell me, so I can stop reading these cryptic damn stories every day. If the “story” he’s referring to isn’t about his gender change, I swear…
Not like Bruce is personally putting these promos together, but with all this attention whoring, I feel like he learned more than we gave him credit for during his time in the Kardashian family.
