Gwyneth Paltrow Goes Out To Dinner During $29 Food Stamp Challenge

You’ve probably heard by now that America’s most disconnected broad in history (and self-described “common woman”) Gwyneth Paltrow is taking part in the $29 food stamp challenge. Basically, the SNAP program, which provides government assistance for low income families to buy food, thinks $29 is enough to feed a family of 3 for an entire week. It’s absolute bullshit and we all know it – even buying stuff that is processed to high heavens and will ultimately kill your kids won’t get you through an entire week, so fuck that.

Anyway, Gwyneth wanted to draw attention to this very important cause by trying to feed herself and her two children on just $29. To start, she decided to go grocery shopping for the week, and here’s what she bought:

We won’t even get into how ridiculously stupid her shopping choices were, because of course Gwyneth thought 7 limes were in order when she only has $29 for a week. Never mind that there’s zero protein outside the eggs (and with 12 eggs between 3 people, that’s 4 eggs for an entire week, or less than one a day, so). But if this seems completely unrealistic, don’t worry – Gwyneth knows it is too, so she decided to ditch the experiment a few days in to go out to an expensive dinner with her new boyfriend Brad Falchuk.

From People:

The actress, 42, and the Glee co-creator, 44, dined at the L.A. restaurant Animal, which featured a barbecue-themed menu on Tuesday of pig ears, veal tongue and fried rabbit legs.

“They were sitting together, very cozy and romantic,” says the observer at the eatery. “He was totally rapt by everything she was saying. They were totally on a date.”

Well, if anyone is shocked at this news, I’ve got some more news for you: the earth is round and the sky is blue. Welcome to the land of “DUH!”

But hey, you can’t blame her. I’m sure poor people get sick of not having enough food all the time, so they just head out to a pricy restaurant for a $30-a-head dinner!

Nicki Minaj Is Engaged To Meek Mill

Nicki Minaj once claimed she would never date a rapper because it’s too much – both people being in the industry, traveling the world and trying to build their career. How could a relationship blossom? Well, one such relationship did indeed seem to blossom between Nicki and rapper Meek Mill. The pair only went public with their relationship a couple of months ago, but it seems like things are getting serious.

How serious, you ask? Well, they’re engaged already! Nicki dropped a cryptic hint on Twitter on Wednesday, though she could just be teasing. It wouldn’t be the first time she’s misled her followers, but that hasn’t stopped rampant speculation that they’re planning to tie the knot.

She then came back later that night to confirm the news, showing off her engagement ring (which I think is pretty hideous, but I bet it’s worth more than I’ll make in the next 5 years):

???????????????????????????????????????? ????

I can see why Meek scooped her up – she’s hot, she’s good at what she does and she’s not afraid to go after what she wants. It’s too early to give congrats, but I’m curious to know if this is true!

Bruce Jenner Speaks Out In New Diane Saywer Interview Promo

bruce jenner abc news

Bruce Jenner is getting ready to reveal all in a 2-hour sit down interview with Diane Sawyer for ABC News, and the network is seriously trying to hype this thing up as much as possible. Everyone who gives an iota of a shit will be tuning in to hear Bruce talk about his intention to transition into a woman and undergo a sex change, but that’s not enough – ABC wants you to really want this, so they’ve started releasing promo clips that are totally ambiguous and shrouded in mystery.

If you can’t watch the video above or just can’t be bothered, Bruce teases that “[his] whole life has been getting [him] ready for this”, but that’s about all.

If you missed the first promo, here it is:

What do you think? Will you be tuning in for this?

Blake Lively’s Full Time Job Is Breastfeeding

blake lively

Blake Lively gave birth to a daughter named James with husband Ryan Reynolds late last year, and she’s been enjoying the motherhood experience ever since. Her full time job used to be acting, and she’d spend her days on film and TV sets without a care in the world. She’s got a different line of work now: breastfeeding.

From Allure:

For Lively, breast-feeding has been “a full-time job,” she says. “I’m, like, driving down the road, pumping.” At the time of our interview, Lively and Reynolds hadn’t revealed their daughter’s name. (Reynolds later confirmed that her name is James.) “It’s her life,” Lively told us. “She should have her privacy until she chooses not to have her privacy, just as I got to choose and my husband got to choose.”

Oh man, these actresses love to talk about pumping milk out of their boobs like they’re the first women to ever do it, don’t they? Granted, this is an interview and no doubt she was asked about it and it’s a pretty universal thing for women who choose and/or are able to do it, but the post-childbirth haze of interviews are always a bit of a downer.

On a more enjoyable, gossip-y note, Blake admitted she felt like being on Gossip Girl was “compromising” of her personal morals:

“People loved it, but it always felt a little personally compromising — you want to be putting a better message out there,” she shares. “I would not be proud to be the person who gave someone the cocaine that made them overdose and then shot someone and slept with someone else’s boyfriend.”

Whatever, girl. You still cashed them checks and we wouldn’t know your name without it, so bye.

Justin Bieber Got Put In A Chokehold At Coachella

justin bieber

Justin Bieber has been insisting that he’s a changed man for a while now. You see, he was just so misunderstood for the past couple of years! He hung around with the wrong people who didn’t have his best interest in mind, and he was just pretending to be someone he wasn’t to fit in, but all that’s behind him. He doesn’t want any trouble… only it seems to follow him wherever he goes, like Coachella. All he wanted was to watch Drake’s set from the VIP area and he left the place in a chokehold. Uh oh!

From TMZ:

Bieber and his entourage walked to the artist’s entrance where Drake was performing, when they were stopped by security and told the area was at capacity and they couldn’t come in. Bieber and his crew showed security they had the proper wristbands to gain entry.

Eyewitnesses tell TMZ, Bieber argued with security, saying there was no way he could stand in a big crowd because he’d get bombarded by fans. Security wasn’t having it and told him to leave.

We’re told Bieber persisted and said he was personally invited by Drake and had been waiting all weekend to see him perform. Bieber didn’t stand down and security was pissed.
At that point a Coachella staffer came up to Bieber and said she would escort him inside the artist’s area. She grabbed Bieber by the arm and began walking him and his security team inside, when Coachella security came up from behind and put Bieber in a chokehold.

Apparently Bieber’s team then got into it with Coachella staff and Bieber was asked to leave, though he says he voluntarily left and is considering pressing charges against the security there.

Also, I never thought I’d say this, but if this is indeed how things went down, I’m kind of on Bieber’s side. He had a pass and was being escorted through to a show he was invited to but security wanted to throw their weight around and be assholes to Bieber just because he is who he is. I sorta feel bad for him. What’s happening to me?! (That being said, he’s been still hanging out with Chris Brown, so he can fuck off with the “I’ve changed” bullshit.)

Rihanna Swears She Wasn’t Snorting Cocaine In This Video


Rihanna has always insisted that she’s got no interest in being a role model, and good for her – why should she? She loves drinking, partying, smoking copious amounts of weed… and snorting coke? It would seem so, though Rihanna denies it. You see, a video popped up online on Tuesday showing RiRi chillin’ with her friends Melissa Forde and someone else whose name I don’t know. Ri is in the background rolling a blunt and seemingly doing lines.

However, Rihanna wasn’t too happy with the suggestion that she was snorting shit up her nose, so she took to the video’s comments section to tell all the haters off and deny that shit:

Well, that sorts that out. Only… it sorta doesn’t because it totally looks like Rihanna was doing cocaine, right? I stan for Rihanna either way, but come on.

Rita Wilson Undergoes Double Mastectomy After Breast Cancer Diagnosis

rita wilson

Rita Wilson revealed that like Angelina Jolie, she also underwent a double mastectomy recently – just last week, in fact – after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She also had reconstructive surgery soon after. But the craziest thing about this story is that she nearly never got her diagnosis to begin with – and wouldn’t have had she not sought a second opinion.

From TMZ:

The 58-year-old actress says she underwent the procedure last week — with husband Tom Hanks by her side — after a diagnosis of invasive lobular carcinoma. She says the first test for cancer came back negative, but she got a second opinion which detected her true condition.

Rita told People, “I hope this will encourage others to get a second opinion and to trust their instincts if something doesn’t ‘feel’ right.”

Good for her for trusting her instincts and finding a doctor to give her a second opinion and proper care. That could have made all the difference between life and death – and frankly, it probably did.

The amount of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer every day is staggering. I’ve said this before, but if there’s any disease we so desperately need a cure for – a quicker one than chemotherapy and radiation, which are really just treatments, not cures – it’s cancer.
