Bobbi Kristina Photo Taken Covertly Being Shopped To Highest Bidder

bobbi kristina

Bobbi Kristina Brown is currently lying in a hospice care center, clinging on to life. Her condition continues to worsen and her family on both sides is still struggling to come to terms with the tragedy, but things just got even worse, because someone decided it’d be a great idea to take a photo of Bobbi on her death bed and try to sell it to the highest bidder. The identity of the person responsible for the photo is currently unknown, and thankfully no publications have stooped low enough to buy it, but what the hell?

From TMZ:

The photo was shopped to us … we passed. It was taken earlier this week at the facility outside of Atlanta. A woman is hovering over Bobbi Kristina in the photo … we’re told it’s a family member.

As for who shot the photo … we’re told it’s “an extended family member.”

The pic is being shopped to multiple magazines and websites, and we’re told there’s interest.

Meanwhile, Bobby Brown’s sister Leolah is not having the bullshit, and she wants everyone to have to take a lie detector test to out the person responsible for the bullshit.

 Leolah said, “You aint gon be able to pay people off on this one! You will not do to my niece what you did to Whitney!”

As we reported, we’re told the person selling the photo is an extended family member. Leolah is demanding a truth test, saying “I will make sure that anyone who came anywhere near Bobbi Kriss- including myself take a lie detective test!”

I mean, that seems a bit insane and likely won’t work, but whatever. It’s a shame that there are such shitty people in the family that want to benefit off this awful situation, but are any of us really surprised?

Here’s Leolah’s full Facebook rant:

Tom Cruise Leaving Scientology To See Suri

tom cruise suri cruise

Tom Cruise hasn’t seen his daughter Suri for a while, now. Instead, Suri has lived with her mother, Katie Holmes, in New York City. The reason for her father’s absence can be summed up in one word: Scientology. Basically, the Church isn’t happy that Suri isn’t being raised in the church, so they’re forbidding him, in so many words, from having contact with her. But it seems like Cruise might call BS on that directive soon because he wants to be part of Suri’s life.

RadarOnline.com has learned that the actor is hoping to have his 9-year-old girl accompany him while he promotes his new movie, Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.

“Tom wants to bring Suri to Comic Con in early July, where he can kill two birds with one stone,” an insider reveals to Radar of the annual convention that takes place in Southern California.

“He’ll get to spend quality time with his daughter, whom he hasn’t seen in months and misses terribly,” continues the source. “They’ll be able to take in San Diego while he drums up buzz for the movie.”

Given that Tom is ready to commit to helping to raise Suri now, does that mean he might consider leaving the Church? It’s hard to say, but it seems unlikely – especially since Scientology made him, and they can easily destroy him if he turns his back on them.

If I were Katie, however, I’d be concerned that the Church would try to get Tom to get Suri so that she can be brought back into the world of Scientology, etc. I would not want my child anywhere near that cult, so who knows what will happen there.

Lindsay Lohan Turned Down A Burger King Commercial

lindsay lohan

In Hollywood, stubbornness and a refusal to give up can completely make a career. But when that career has been made and broken roughly 1,000 times already and someone offers you a chance to… I don’t know, not re-make it again, but to at least not die penniless and have people look at your face in 30 second increments, you should probably go for it, right? Well, Lindsay Lohan thinks so. She recently turned down a Burger King commercial because she still thinks she’s better than that, and she’s having none of it.

From Page Six:

The flame-haired actress was asked to wear a Spicy Chicken Fries box, smoke a chicken fry like a cigarette, and vamp a “spicy” monologue.

“We were gob-smacked. It was making fun of her issues,” an insider told me.

Lohan and her managers at Untitled Talent suggested some alternate concepts to no avail.

Another source said Lohan was too demanding. “She wanted creative control,” said my source. Exasperated reps for Burger King said, “Forget about it.”

“She’s broke, sleeping at different guys’ apartments, but she thinks she’s Elizabeth Taylor,” the source said.

I mean, look – does it sound humiliating to wear a chicken fries box? Sure, fine. But in what way is that “making fun of her issues”? Does she have some weird issue with fast food chicken? I’m just confused. Also, LOL to her wanting “creative control”. Of a Burger King commercial. Just think about that for a while.

To be honest, I feel like we’re going to end up with Amy Winehouse situation on our hands, as sad as I am to say that. I don’t for one second think Lindsay is clean and sober, she had no money, the industry is shunning her, and as sad as I am to say it and hope that I’m wrong, I don’t see thinks turning out well for her. Especially since she’s clearly having delusions of grandeur. Elizabeth Taylor! Christ.

Prince George Steals The Show At Princess Charlotte’s Christening

Yesterday was a big day for the royal family: Princess Charlotte was christened! Everyone was looking forward to getting a glimpse of the Princess of Cambridge now that she’s a little more than two months old (and we just saw new photos last month), but it turns out, it was her big brother, Prince George, who ended up stealing the show with his cuteness.

I mean, seriously – how can you not love this adorable face?

prince george

Cute, right? Yesterday also marked the day Kate named Charlotte’s five godparents – yes, that’s right, FIVE. I won’t bother to name them all since they’re no one of note, but man, they’ve got a serious backup plan going on. Charlotte was christened at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk, which is 110 miles away from London. Nevertheless, over 2,000 well-wishers turned up just to watch the family go in and out of the church, which says a lot.

Here’s a photo of Kate with Charlotte, just for good measure:

Scott Disick Is Totally Cheating On Kourtney Kardashian

scott disick cheating

Raise you’re hand if you’re surprised by this news: Scott Disick seems to be cheating on Kourtney Kardashian with a 32-year-old Chloe Bartoli, a “celebrity stylist” who happens to be his ex. These aren’t just baseless rumours, either – there are actually photos of them cuddling up in Monte Carlo, while the mother of his children is at home raising them in California. Keep it classy, Disick!

From TMZ:

Kourtney Kardashian is telling friends she has no doubt … Scott Disick is hooking up with the chick he was all handsy with in Monte Carlo, but she’s also deeply worried he’s lapsed and fallen back into substance abuse.

Our sources say Kourtney believes the woman, celebrity stylist Chloe Bartoli, is an opportunist and taking advantage of Scott, whom Kourtney believes is getting wasted again. We’re told she knows Chloe and, as we reported, Scott knows her as well … they even dated.

Our sources say Kourtney’s sisters have the same view as her and on Friday they all went from simmer to boil, targeting their anger at both Scott and Chloe.

Kourtney hasn’t made any decisions about the fate of her relationship with Scott, but we’re told it’s already in a “fragile state.”

Well, that’s lovely. Just a word to all the mothers and fathers out there: Can you please make sure to teach your sons not to treat women like shit, and treat your daughters to have enough self-respect to never be the “other woman” for the sake of money or fame (or even just attention)? Jesus. This whole thing is a mess, but considering Kourtney has not only not left his ass after the INSANE bullshit he’s pulled over the years, but she’s continued having kids with him, I guarantee you this will blow over within the span of two episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

George Takei Apolgizes For “Clown In Blackface” Comment

George Takei

George Takei just might be everyone’s favorite person to follow on Facebook. He (or his social media manager, whatever) is really good at posting funny, witty posts. However, Mr. Takei made some statements that weren’t very funny, or witty. While commenting on the recent gay marriage ruling, Takei referred to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as a “clown in blackface” for making remarks that, to quote Takei himself, “really got under my skin.”

However, Takei feels he owes an apology for the comment. He posted a long-ass apology on his Facebook page (of course!), so here are some excerpts:

I recently was asked by a reporter about Justice Clarence Thomas’s dissent in the marriage equality cases, in which he wrote words that really got under my skin, by suggesting that the government cannot take away human dignity through slavery, or though internment. In my mind that suggested that this meant he felt the government therefore shouldn’t be held accountable, or should do nothing in the face of gross violations of dignity. When asked by a reporter about the opinion, I was still seething, and I referred to him as a “clown in blackface” to suggest that he had abdicated and abandoned his heritage. This was not intended to be racist, but rather to evoke a history of racism in the theatrical arts. While I continue to vehemently disagree with Justice Thomas, the words I chose, said in the heat of anger, were not carefully considered.

TL;DR: 

[...] my choice of words was regrettable, not because I do not believe Justice Thomas is deeply wrong, but because they were ad hominem and uncivil, and for that I am sorry.

He goes on to wish everyone a happy Fourth of July weekend.

Yeah, definitely not the best choice of words there, buddy. But I feel the apology is sincere and thoughtful and shows actual remorse. What do you think?

Kim Kardashian Denies Getting Botox While Pregnant

kim-kardashian-topless

Kim Kardashian is probably known best for her staggering vanity, and now that she’s pregnant again, the rumors are running rampant: that she used IVF, and that she’s used Botox. This isn’t the first time a pregnant Kim has been accused of getting a nip of that sweet, sweet ‘tox. But this time, she’s facing the rumors head on, by way of a topless selfie she posted on Instagram (above), with a long-winded explanation of her changing face. Spoiler alert: it’s mostly just makeup, you guys!

Can’t wait to show u this contouring make up tutorial for my changing pregnant face! No I don’t do fillers or botox when pregnant like some tabloids are reporting, you would have to be really sick to endanger your child like that! Anyone who has been pregnant or gained weight knows your face totally changes! My nose gets bigger, cheeks fuller & my lips swell up. The challenge is trying to adjust the make up to make me feel normal & we will share our tricks on KimKardashianWest.com

I have actually heard of women’s noses getting bigger while pregnant, but I don’t think anyone is really focused on Kim’s nose here. I think they’re more focused on her uncanny valley-like face. It’s just so…smooth. It’s a little unnerving.

Do I believe her? What I’ve realized is, I don’t actually care that much anymore.

But what do you guys think?
