But Hey, How Awful is Kate Middleton’s New Portrait?

photo of kate middleton official portrait pictures
Awful, right? Pretty damn terrible. Kate Middleton is undeniably a beautiful woman, but this painting (it is a painting, right?) makes her look old, wrinkly, and frankly, dirty. Other words I’ve seen used on the Internets? “Lifeless.” “Ghastly.” “Gloomy.” So needless to say, I’m not the only one who pretty much thinks it’s the most awful thing I’ve seen this year. Others, however, have described the portrait as “just amazing” (Prince William said that) and “absolutely beautiful.” Uh, also Prince William.

Survey says? Put the paintbrush down, yo.

Looking Good, Catherine Zeta-Jones!

She looks even better than the last time we said that Catherine Zeta-Jones was looking good, because the last time we said Catherine Zeta-Jones was looking good, she was looking like this:

And even before that, she wasn’t looking all that good (sorry, but the truth hurts sometimes), and she was looking like this:

But anyway, hey. Catherine Zeta-Jones is looking better than ever (literally), and I’m going to credit it all to a little weight gain, some happiness, and a dash of self-confidence that she’s doing so many movies lately. CZJ is probably one of my favorite Hollywood ladies, and even though she’s not doing awesome movies like ‘The Haunted’ anymore, doesn’t make her any less important and lovely in my book.

Get it, girl!

Kelly Osbourne and Lady Gaga are Fighting on the Internet

So Lady Gaga went out and picked a big, throbbing bone with Kelly Osbourne, trashing her for her position on ‘Fashion Police’ and didn’t even do it in a private manner—she went and posted a super passive-aggressive open letter to Kelly on her website, Little Monsters. Here’s the letter that Lady Gaga penned:

Open Letter to Kelly Osbourne

Dear Kelly, While I wish you had reached out to me personally, as the head of the Born This Way foundation with my mother Cynthia we would like to respond. Everyday, through my music and public voice I choose to be positive and work towards a kinder and braver world with our community of followers. I encourage them to ignore criticism, stand up to bullies, know their own value and see that we are all the same and no one person is worth more than another. I know I’m perceived as a wild child, but in reality I am woman that deeply cares for humanity. I have empathy for you Kelly, but I feel it culturally important to note that you have chosen a less compassionate path. Your work on E! with the Fashion Police is rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another. “Appearance” is the most used reason for bullying in the world. Your show breeds negativity, and over the years has even become comedic in nature. It glorifies you and Joan Rivers pointing in the camera, laughing, and making jokes about artists and celebrities as if we are zoo animals. What about your body revolution? It used to make me truly sad when I would hear people talk about your weight when you were younger, as I was bullied too. To see you blossoming into a beautiful slender woman who makes fun of others for a living is astounding. Why not help others? Why not defend others who are bullied for their image and share your story? I am pointing this out not to take a crack at your character, as we’ve met before and you’re lovely. However, I urge you to take responsibility and accountability for the example that you are setting for young people. They look up to you because you are famous, and if you treat others that way on TV, many adolescents at home on twitter assume your actions are acceptable: well if she does it, why can’t I? I cannot control my fans, and I discourage them from any negativity and violence, because that is wrong and hurtful — and I do feel baldy that your feelings were hurt. However, we can all do our part in the media to set a standard of respect, compassion, and love. I wish for you to be treated with the kindness and respect that everyone deserves. While some of my fans have learning to do, most of them share the same values as I, and it’s what bonds us together. And that bond is strong. Sincerely Gaga and Cynthia www.bornthiswayfoundation.org PS. And to any media or celebrities that happen to find this letter in their path, I hope you, too, consider the power of your voices. Lets work together and make 2013 a year of unity.

Burn, right? I mean, I kind of dislike Kelly Osbourne as much as the next person, but you know what? Kelly Osbourne is Kelly Osbourne and it’s no different than Lady Gaga being Lady Gaga. And speaking of Kelly? Here’s her mom’s response, and if you know one thing, it’s that Sharon Osbourne doesn’t mince words when it comes to standing up for what she believes in:

Ms. Gaga,

I am responding to your open letter to my daughter Kelly, and I am perplexed as to why you would go public with an open letter. Regarding this current situation; Kelly didn’t contact you, I was the one that contacted your manager today and the email is attached below for your reference. I reached out to him as Kelly’s manager and mother to ask him if you could address your “little monster” fans and stop them from writing libelous, slanderous and vile comments about my family, including death threats to Kelly. Your open letter is hypocritical and full of contradictions. And as your mother Cynthia supports you, I support my daughter Kelly. I must say your opinions on what is politically correct and acceptable totally differ from mine, but that is what makes the world so interesting…we are all different. How sweet that you have empathy for my daughter, as you feel that she has taken a less passionate path in life. You say her work on E! with the Fashion Police is “rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another.” Welcome to the real world. Example, when I saw you wear a dress made out of raw meat, I was sickened. When I see you wearing fur, and using it as a fashion statement, the fact that defenseless animals have been killed so you can get your picture in the press is abhorrent to me. Shouldn’t you be teaching your “little monster” fans to respect animals and life? I don’t feel I have to justify Kelly’s choices in life to you. By your actions to Kelly right now, you have shown me that you are nothing more than a publicly seeking hypocrite and an attention seeker. You know it would have been much more dignified of you to do this privately. I am calling you a bully because you have 32 million followers hanging on your every word and you are criticizing Kelly in your open letter. Are you so desperate that you needed to make this public?

You state “Everyday, through my music and public voice I choose to be positive and work towards a kinder and braver world with our community of followers.” Well this obviously is not translating well to your fans, as a large portion of them have not only been vile to Kelly, but also other celebrities such as Madonna, Adele and Rihanna. “You say a kinder, braver world” I don’t know what world you live in, but supporting disgraceful fan comments doesn’t fall under the words “kinder and braver.” It comes under the heading of bullshit.

In closing, stop wearing fur, stop looking for publicity, and stop using your fans to belittle not just Kelly but an endless stream of celebrities. A word from you would stop all the hideous, negative and vile threats from your “little monsters.” Let me know if you want to continue this debate. I’m an open playing field for you my darling.

Sincerely,
Sharon Osbourne

Can I go ahead and say that I’m completely on board with what Sharon Osbourne had to say? Because I’m completely on board with what Sharon Osbourne had to say.

Thoughts? Team Gaga or Team Osbourne?

Eddie Cibrian May or May Not Be Cheating on LeAnn Rimes With a Former Mistress

Have you guys ever heard of a lady by the name of Scheana Marie Jancan? If you read all of our LeAnn Rimes posts and you know about a certain commenter by the handle of ‘Guest’, then you probably did. Guest has long talked about this Scheana Marie Jancan chick and her role in the breakup of Eddie‘s first marriage to Brandi Glanville, and now the possible role in his second marriage (he was only ever married twice, right? There’s not some crazy third or fourth or fifth woman in the picture here who’s going to jump into this off-balance fray anytime soon, is there?).

Radar Online has an exclusive interview with this Scheana Marie Jancan, who is a waitress in Los Angeles, and who basically admits to being the other woman—at one point—in Eddie’s life while involved with LeAnn Rimes. In the interview, Scheana says about the early courting days between Eddie and her, “As months go by, Eddie gets separated. He then contacts me to go out for drinks. … I believed he was separated, so I was happy to go out with him again. But shortly into trying to hang out with him I find out about LeAnn, and I felt like such an idiot!” Needless to say, he was “dating” Scheana at the same time he was embarking on an affair with LeAnn.

However, Scheana claims that there’s nothing going on at this point: “I have no interest in talking to him again,” Scheana says, and claims that the two haven’t spoken in “years.”

Hm.

Lindsay Lohan Was a Crying, Ranting, Drinking Menace on the ‘Canyons’ Set

photo of lindsay lohan in the canyons set pictures
From TMZ:

The man who wrote article is Stephen Rodrick — who says he was allowed to chronicle the project from start to finish.

According to Rodrick, Lohan was a mess who was initially fired after blowing off two days of filming. Rodrick says Lohan showed up to the director’s hotel room, pounded on the door while hysterically crying and begging for her job back.

Rodrick says Lohan stayed in the hallway sobbing for 90 minutes before finally leaving.

Eventually, she was hired back to the production — and things got worse … with Lohan constantly criticizing producers and her co-stars.

But the most concerning part, Rodrick says Lohan had been drinking before a scene in which she would be simulating a 4-way sex scene with some real-life porn actors.

After the scene, producers offered Lindsay a hired car to drive her home … but she refused … and drove off in her Porsche. Rodrick says producers “all hoped they would still have a lead actress in the morning.”

In the article, Rodrick says Lohan also freaked out before a sex scene in which she was supposed to get naked … and locked herself in a closet. Rodrick says the director had to beg her to do the scene … and eventually stripped naked himself to show her it was no big deal.

The gimmick worked — Lohan eventually dropped her robe and shot a 14-minute sex scene.

According to the report, Lindsay once partied with Lady Gaga until 5:30 AM … when she had a 6:00 AM call time. She eventually showed up to the set at 9 AM, but left soon after a doctor said she was too sick to film.

Surprising? Oh gosh, no. No, not at all, actually. I think that this is just basic Lindsay behavior, and we were only lucky enough to hear about it first-hand because Lindsay and the production team at ‘The Canyons’ had the bad sense to OK an ongoing documentary of what it’s like when you hire Lindsay Lohan for your movie.

What’s more, though, is that Lindsay herself claims that the allegations are all true—except for that pesky drinking and driving bit, because duh, Lindsay would never drink (because first of all, she doesn’t drink) and then go ahead and operate a vehicle, because driving is serious business, and it’s a privilege, and all sorts of bad things can happen when you get behind the wheel of a car intoxicated. No, Lindsay’s claiming to friends that, while the rest of the article from the New York Times was pretty much spot-on, the bit about drinking and driving was completely wrong, because she’d just never, and I quote, be “that stupid and irresponsible.” Got it.

You can read the full write-up at the New York Times, here, and I recommend it, because wow. Lindsay Lohan sure is a firecracker. … Or wait, is it firecrotch? I just don’t even know anymore.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson Have Healthy Sex Lives, Huh?

photo of robert pattinson and kristen stewart in bed pictures
From Hollywood Life:

Kristen Stewart wants to please Robert Pattinson! The Twilight stars are reportedly totally freaky now that they’re back together and they don’t hold back in the bedroom. A new report from Star claims that Rob and Kristen enjoy buying blindfolds, feathers and handcuffs to use in the bedroom.

Emotions were running high when Kristen cheated on Rob with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. But now that these two have worked things out, Kristen is doing everything she can to “please” Rob, according to this new report.

The report claims they have having sex up to seven times a day.

“They have a very active sex life,” a source tells the magazine. “And like handcuffs, blindfolds, and feathers.” The source goes on to claim that they “regularly” buy dvd’s, costumes and props at The Pleasure Chest in West Hollywood.

Well, well, well. Kristen Stewart has a real, live libido—who knew? And sex DVDs and costumes and props? Hell’s bells. Robert Pattinson‘s got himself a regular minx on his hands, doesn’t he? But I’m sure he already knew that, didn’t he. Or, at the very least, Rupert Sanders does. Ahem, I mean “did.”

Oh to be a fly on the wall of that room.
