Today Is Not The Day That We Stop Talking About LeAnn Rimes

Sorry, friends. I’m sure that when you woke up this morning, you sat up, stretched it out, and thought “man, I sure hope I don’t hear anything about that LeAnn Rimes today!” I’m sorry to ruin your whole entire day, but LeAnn’s E! special aired last night, and we were never going to not talk about it, ok?

Here are some highlights from the interview:

On falling in love with Eddie: “I call it insanity! Absolute insanity. But nothing ever happened between us except for on camera, you know, during the film . . . Absolutely nothing. I had no idea what life was throwing me and I had no idea how to handle it. . . But all I knew was I could not . . . we couldn’t stop connecting in some way. And it was the hardest thing I’ve ever been through in my life.”

More on the affair: “I think I became numb. Then I told everyone I should have told and then I curled up in a ball on the couch and then I didn’t move. And I didn’t move for a while. It’s that feeling of your heart falling to the ground. Eddie reacted the way that I reacted too, but he reacted in his own way and I allowed him to do that. Because he had so much more to deal with than I did — I had a marriage, he had a marriage and children. I can’t even fathom that.”

Something about the word “homewrecker”: “I’m like, can someone come up with anything like more, I don’t know, original?” she joked, but her laughter quickly turned to tears. “Because at the end of the day, I never set and been held by so many . . . like by my family . . . my friends, my new friends, this is what life’s about,” Rimes said between tears. “Through all the hard stuff, there comes so much beauty on the other side if you just let it happen.”

On the strength of her relationship:“When you endure those kind of hardships, at the end of the day if you can’t make it through that, you can’t make it,” Rimes said. “And we’ve made it through a lot . . . We fought for each other.”

Eddie on how awesome cheating was: “You gotta sometimes fight for what you know eventually is going to be your truth and your happiness,” he said. “I’m a better father for everything that has happened. I’m a better friend. It’s been difficult but it’s, it’s definitely been worth it.”

Well, whatever. LeAnn is crazy, but so is Eddie, so maybe the affair was better for everyone in the long run. Cheating isn’t cool, but neither is remaining married to someone just because you think you should. I’m sort of having trouble coming up with any sort of sympathy here, I kind of just wanted to post the picture of LeAnn crying again. Sorry*.

*I’m not sorry.

Quotables: Lea Michele Has A Weird Relationship with Her Boobs

These babies are great. They are my prizewinners. For a while they were out and about, showing off on Broadway every night, then they came to L.A. and were like, ‘No one else looks like me here!’ They were nervous to make their appearance but feel they’ve earned their place. So they asked if they could come out, and I was like, ‘All right, you guys.’ They definitely rose to the occasion, so I’m going to continue to give them more opportunities.”

- Lea Michele tells an unsettling tale about her titties.

No, but this is so awkward. This is like when you’re out at a party and someone says something that people find mildly entertaining, so they just take that topic and run with it, and they keep talking about it until it’s just uncomfortable. They’re like “HA HA, RIGHT?!” and you’re just like “ha, yeah, I have to go do anything else besides keep talking to you.” And they go “wait, I have more hilarious jokes!” and you fake an aneurysm just so you don’t have to keep interacting with them. That’s a familiar situation, right?

Oh, This Is Just How Mario Lopez Decorates

What, you guys don’t do this? You’re telling me that when you decorate, you don’t wear precious little panties that are just a little too small for you? And you don’t have small children holding your ankles? Then how do you ever get anything done?!

This hilarious picture was brought to you by the personal Twitter account of Mario Lopez‘s wife. You should thank her personally for bringing such joy to your Monday morning.

Lindsay Lohan Is So Dumb She Can’t Even Pay Her Rent

A photo of Lindsay Lohan

Oh guys, I know. I really do. It’s Lindsay. Again. We hear something about this girl every single day, and sometimes it gets tiresome. I get it. But we wouldn’t keep talking about it if she didn’t keep doing it.

But ok, about that rent thing. I’m not saying that you’re dumb if you can’t pay your rent. That would be silly and insensitive of me. I’m just saying that Lindsay Lohan is stupid because she can’t pay her rent.

Here, let’s just get the full story first:

Lindsay Lohan’s financial situation is so dire, she is struggling each month to pay the rent on her Beverly Hills mansion … TMZ has learned.

According to our sources, Lindsay has been scraping together the money to pay her $8,000 rent. We’re told Lindsay signed the lease on the home back in February … when her career was on the upswing and the money seemed to be rolling in.

But according to our sources, when Lindsay’s finances took a turn for the worse (like when the IRS seized her bank accounts) she began doing whatever she could to make rent each month, often hitting up friends for money.

Lindsay tried to get out of the lease and move out early, but we’re told the owners of the home told LiLo the penalty for breaking the lease was MASSIVE.

So Lindsay is making it work until the lease is over in February and LiLo is telling friends she’ll then look for a place in New York.

Dumb, dumb, dumb. This is a girl who has had to spend way more than she earns in court fees for literal years. This is a girl who owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes. This is also a girl who went out and found an $8,000 a month mansion to rent the second she got decent work.

I know that if Lindsay had the ability to really think about this, to consider the fact that she’s sort of a trainwreck and any sort of success will inevitably be fleeting because she can’t stay away from booze and infamy, then she probably wouldn’t be in this whole mess in the first place. But man. So, so dumb.

Katy Perry And Rihanna Are Fighting Over Who Has The Worst Boyfriend

Katy Perry and Rihanna are total BFFs. Like, totally. They probably have slumber parties and they probably have secret matching tattoos and they probably text each other ALL THE TIME.

Or at least they did, back before Rihanna got back with Chris Brown and Katy started seeing John Mayer. Now everything’s just gone to hell.

From Hollywood Life:

We thought nothing could come between these BFFs! Inseparable pals Katy Perryand Rihanna are now feuding over their bad boy boyfriends, according to a new report.

Rihanna is tired of Katy criticizing her for dating Chris Brown, and this time Rihanna is fighting back! A source told Star magazine “She says Katy’s a hypocrite since she’s with John Mayer, who is one of the biggest sleazeballs on the planet!”

Katy and John are rumored to be moving into an L.A. home together, and Rihanna is not happy about it. She is firing back disses at John!

The source assures that RiRi and Katy do care about each other and are  just being protective — “They’re really stubborn and both of them are in love with bad boys.”

We certainly hope these two can forgive and forget! Nothing should come between BFFs, even their men! We hope Rihanna and Katy can work this out!

So dumb, but I think Katy does have the upper hand here. I think Rihanna means well, and I think she definitely has a reason to be sad that her friend is dating an asshole like John Mayer, but she’s pretty much the last person on the planet who needs to be giving on dating advice. Because while John Mayer might be a gross, racist jackass, Chris Brown is the guy who put her in the hospital. It’s kind of hard to top that.

It’s Cool, Kim Kardashian Is Just Rubbing Blood All Over Her Face

A photo of Kim Kardashian

Yeah, apparently this is a thing that people do now. If you get tired of shoving a needle in your face for that hot “temporary paralysis” look, you can just rub blood on your face! It’s less invasive, except for the part where they take your blood for the rubbing, and it’s so edgy! You can be the 21st century Elizabeth Bathory!

Except I think Kim Kardashian has already snapped up that title:

Just how far is Kim Kardashian willing to go for beauty? Pretty bloody far, friends say, and they mean that literally.

“Kim underwent the vampireface-lift to smooth wrinkles and fill out her face,” an insider tells the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now.

The controversial new in-office treatment, also known as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy, uses injections of the client’s own blood to create younger-looking skin. While no surgery is involved, the bloodletting process is not for the faint of heart!

“It was crazy,” a pal of Kim’s tells Life & Style about her vampire lift, which was done in Miami. “The doctor took the blood from Kim’s arm and spun it [in a centrifuge] to separate the platelets. The blood was then rubbed onto Kim’s face. After that, they did something called ‘needling,’ where all these little needles prick the skin and let the platelets seep in. It was so gross!”

Although there are no long-term clinical studies that support the procedure’s claims of providing a natural method of stimulating collagen growth for a more youthful appearance, the treatment is deemed safe. “It’s supposed to have really great natural results,” the insider tells Life & Style.

This is too gross. If she’s doing shit like this while she’s 32, then what’s she going to do when she’s 50? Does Kanye know about this? What is psychologically wrong with her? Why didn’t she recognize years ago how gorgeous she was without all the plastic surgery and botox and weird blood rituals? We need answers!

Anderson Cooper Washes His Pants Twice A Year

Or, ok, a few times a year. Anderson Cooper washes his pants – his jeans, specifically – a few times a year. And I know, that sounds a little gross, but really it’s adorable.

From Us Weekly:

Anderson Cooper takes extreme measures to ensure his jeans look pristine.

While speaking to fashion consultant Stacy London on Anderson Live Dec. 6, the 45-year-old TV host admitted his wardrobe doesn’t have much variety. “In my real life, I wear a T-shirt, gray or white, and the same pair of jeans,” Cooper said. “Literally, the same pair of jeans every day.”

He added, “They have these jeans you don’t have to wash now — or so they say. It’s true!”

London, 43, seemed skeptical. “I went to this store APC which has really nice stuff,” Cooper explained. “And you buy these things and the person said to me, ‘Don’t wash them for a long time.’ They mean like six months, I think.”

The What Not to Wear co-host argued that “six months is probably a little long” between washes, but to maintain “the integrity of your denim, you should wash it in cold water — no soap — and air dry it.”

Cooper admitted he’s washed his jeans “maybe twice in six months.”

“The times I’ve done it, I’ve worn them and walked into my shower with them and put some soap on them and then air dried them,” he continued. “Isn’t that how you are supposed to do it?”

When London advised him not to use soap, Cooper seemed confused. “That’s not really washing them off, so why even bother?”

Oh, Anderson Cooper. What a special, special man, and always a pleasure.

Has anyone else heard about jeans that you’re not supposed to wash that often though? Because I need to hop on that train. I definitely don’t wash my jeans* after every wear, and I probably stretch them out a little longer than I should between washing, but if I was given specific instruction not to wash my jeans, then I’d basically be in heaven.

*Hot tip for ladies who have hard time finding jeans: jeggings! No, no, I know, but listen. Find jeggings that lean more toward jeans, ones that are thicker and have pockets and buttons and zippers and all, and size up. I have jeggings that are about four sizes bigger than I usually wear in jeans, and they’re not skintight, and they actually look like jeans. And so comfortable! You’re welcome!
