Chelsea Handler says Bill Cosby tried his sexual assault moves on her

chelsea handler

Bill Cosby is basically a known rapist now. Don’t give me the whole “innocent until proven guilty” lark – sure, in a court of law, that’s the case. But I don’t believe that dozens of women – including many famous women who have zero reason to make shit up – have conspired just to take an old man down. Sorry, not buying it. And now Chelsea Handler has added her voice to the chorus, revealing that about a decade ago, Bill nearly tried his drugging routine on her and thankfully she escaped.

From Esquire:

‘I was in Atlantic City playing, doing stand-up, and he was doing stand-up in Atlantic City in the same hotel, and at like three o’clock in the afternoon, someone from the hotel came down and said, “Oh, you know, Mr. Cosby would really like to meet you up in his hotel suite.” And I thought, That’s really weird. This was like ten years ago. And I said, That’s really weird. I don’t want to go alone. I go, I don’t know him. So the three guys I was with—thank God these guys were with me. One was filming and one was like a producer; we were filming something—I brought them up with me to his room and thank God I did, because now I know what would’ve happened if I went up there alone. And I forgot about it when all the stories about Bill Cosby came out. I was like, I didn’t even think of it. Then my friend texted me the other day saying, “Do you remember that night we went up to, or that afternoon we went up to Bill Cosby’s and you were so freaked out you made us come with you?” And I said, Yeah, and he said, “Hello! You could’ve been one of his victims if we weren’t there.” And I went, “Oh my gosh …” Yeah, so yeah, he’s guilty.’

Why am I not surprised to hear this? Of course, Chelsea managed to avoid a potentially disastrous situation, which is great, but somehow I imagine we’ll be hearing more and more of these stories year after year. Of course, nothing will ever become of it since apparently it’s not worth prosecuting him over, but these women need to tell their stories and the truth about Cosby needs to be known.

Britney Spears and Charlie Ebersol are still going strong

britney spears charlie ebersol

Britney Spears and boyfriend Charlie Ebersol have been together for a few months now, and things are going well! They’re having hot sex all the time, he seems to like her kids and BritBrit is happy. What more can you ask for? Now Britney has opened up about the relationship for the first time in a cover feature for People, as you do.

When Britney Spears’s assistant first showed the singer a photo of her single friend, producer Charlie Ebersol, the superstar was immediately intrigued.

“I thought he was really adorable and she said he was good to people, so I went for it,” Spears tells PEOPLE in this week’s exclusive cover story.

Given the green light, Ebersol, 32, asked Spears, 33, what she’d like to do for their first date. “I said, ‘Cook for me!’ ” she says. “So he made fish, mushrooms, avocado with a dressing, and tomatoes and mozzarella. It was amazing.”

Charlie has kept up the romance lark this entire 6 months, and on her birthday they even made… waffles (???) on the floor.

“For my birthday, we made waffles on the floor, with candles, and he bought me a real beautiful cake and a beautiful gift that I have on the wall,” she says. “One of my favorite songs is ‘Thank U,’ by Alanis Morissette, and he put all the words to the song in a long frame. It was really thoughtful.”

Um, WHAT? ‘Thank U’ is one of her favourite songs? Hahahaha. I don’t even know why that cracks me up, but it totally does. Oh, BritBrit. Never change.

PS – Why does she look Photoshopped into that header image???

Shailene Woodley loves eating bugs

shailene woodley

Shailene Woodley seems to have really taken to her role as Hollywood’s hippie forest nymph and isn’t at all concerned about coming off as bizarre or downright ridiculous, which kinda makes me like her more. Homegirl is legit committed to her ~off the grid~ lifestyle. She spends days by the sea (hippies are drawn to the ocean because of Mother Nature, duh), she makes her own soap and she’s even heralding bugs as the next big superfood.

Here are some highlights from her new cover shoot for Nylon.

On the powers of bone broth:

Woodley spent her Friday night hunkering over a pot for hours in her Venice rental, waiting for the marrow bones she’d bought at the butcher’s to boil down. She finished up the last of it for breakfast this morning.

“I was laughing on the way here because I was worried I had beef broth breath,” admits Woodley. She doesn’t, but the soup must be doing her some good. In flowy linen overalls and a loose cream-colored T-shirt that slips off her shoulders, Woodley appears relaxed and engaged, if a little tired in the occasional moment when her thoughtful responses peter out into silence.

On being a natural goddess:

She easily springs back to life when the topic turns to her favorite preoccupations, few of which have anything to do with movies. She’s just as fascinated by the powers of galangal (Thai ginger), cramp bark (for PMS), or meditation—she kicks off every morning with a little zazen—as she is with whatever legendary director she happens to be working with (at the moment, it’s the famously intense Oliver Stone on the upcoming Edward Snowden biopic) or what projects she’d like to do next (a “big, stylish musical”—who knew?).

On eating bugs (from the behind-the-scenes video):

“I’ve eaten ants and that was great. And June bugs, that was great. I think the future of food is in insects, so we’ll see what happens.”

Huh. I mean, let’s be honest – the likelihood that Shailene Woodley chows down on insects on a daily basis is slim to none, but I appreciate her unwavering dedication to extreme hipsterism. She truly has reached new heights with it. And somehow, she manages not to be (too) obnoxious about it all, which is somewhat of a miracle.

The full interview is long as shit, but worth a read for the lulz alone, if that’s your thing.

Sarah Jessica Parker is not here for Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks seems to be on a Charm World Tour lately, since he’s turning up on all the talk shows lately trying to prove that he’s still a Totally Cool Guy. Sure, Tom thanks Tom is awesome, but does anyone else? Perhaps, but I know one person who doesn’t, and that’s Sarah Jessica Parker.

It’s unclear what Tom was going on about at Madison Square Garden earlier this week, but what is 100% crystal clear is that SJP was not feeling it. She gives him the most stank ass look you could possibly imagine and I absolutely love it. There’s nothing else to this story, but I just want you to take a moment to bask in this glory:

What do you think Tom was talking about?

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart are back together

Well, well, well, what do we have here? Jennifer Lopez split with her baby beau Casper Smart last year amidst rumours that he’d been cheating on her with a transsexual porn star or whatever, but it seems that now their relationship has been mended and they’re back on! The couple were spotted together in LA before American Idol on Wednesday night and kissed openly for everyone to see. Yeehaw.

Apparently this isn’t the first time they were spotted back together – they apparently partied at Big Sean’s House of Blues gig and went to a GQ event together recently, so it looks like it’s been back on for a little while now. I personally think JLo can do WAY better than this chump, but whatever – to each her own, I suppose.

Rihanna releases new single ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’

rihanna bbhmm

Rihanna has been teasing us with the prospect of new music for a while now, and while our ears have been tortured by that terrible ‘FourFive Seconds’ shit, I think we’re all more than ready for a true Rihanna banger to get the warmer season started, right? RIGHT.

So, here we have the second single from the upcoming R8 album. It’s called ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ and features some very touching lyrics, such as:

Bitch better have my money!
Y’all should know me well enough
Bitch better have my money!
Please don’t call me on my bluff
Pay me what you owe me
Ballin’ bigger than LeBron
Bitch, give me your money
Who y’all think y’all frontin’ on?
Like brrap, brrap, brrap

This is perfect since, you know, RiRi has been talking lately about how she wants the new album to really focus on the meaningful:

Anyhow, here the song is in all its glory:

Chris Pine does a pretty good Christopher Walken impersonation

chris pine

We don’t really talk enough about Chris Pine here on Evil Beet. In fact, we don’t really talk about him at all – the last time we did was just about this time last year, after he pleaded guilty to a DUI and lost his license. Fortunately, things seem to have picked up for him since then, because now he’s doing pretty solid Christopher Walken impersonations on The Late Late Show!

I must say, I’m impressed.
