Ronan Farrow was in the news recently because mom Mia Farrow casually speculated that his dad was perhaps not Woody Allen, but Frank Sinatra. Originally Mr. Farrow sort of winked at the reports, tweeting, “Listen, we’re all *possibly* Frank Sinatra’s son.” Apparently now he considers the whole paternity question “an annoyance” (Hollywood Reporter), which I understand. But it’s gonna be all smooth sailing from now on for Ronan. He’s getting his town TV show on MSNBC. Just like Mr. Alec Baldwin! Here are some savory details from HR:
Ronan Farrow — the son of Mia Farrow who previously worked as an Obama administration foreign policy official — will host a weekday program on MSNBC beginning early next year.
The show, which is likely to launch in mid-January, will be closely aligned with Farrow’s activism.
[...] ”I think what people crave is more involvement in the story,” he said. “There has been a democratization of information. But what they still crave, and what I crave as a TV viewer, is a guide on how people can have agency in the story. And this show is all about empowering people to do that. People want a return to real democracy. They want to respond to these events [in Washington] that there is so much frustration about.”
So there you go. A handsome, well-connected, 25-year-old Rhodes Scholar is getting a TV show. But with tweets as good as his, I ain’t even mad.

Mia Farrow dropped a bombshell when she casually revealed in Vanity Fair that her son Ronan, could actually be the son of Frank Sinatra, and not Woody Allen. Ronan does resemble Sinatra a lot more than Allen, and he seems okay with the the idea of Frank being his dad, tweeting,
Listen, we’re all *possibly* Frank Sinatra’s son.
Goddamn he is awesome. He also burned Woody hard when last year he tweeted,
Happy father’s day — or as they call it in my family, happy brother-in-law’s day.
I really want to hang out with this dude.
Here’s what Ms. Farrow told Vanity Fair, via E Online:
Farrow admitted Sinatra was the great love of her life and “we never really split up.” [...] When asked if Ronan could be Sinatra’s biological child, Farrow simply replied, “Possibly.”
Nancy Sinatra is totally cool with this, saying, “He [Ronan] is a big part of us, and we are blessed to have him in our lives.” Well that was fast.
Don’t you just love old school Frank Sinatra gossip?

From Hollywood Life:
Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez have called it quits after he betrayed her one too many times. The final straw? Justin’s ill-timed friendship with Selena’s ex-boyfriend, Nick Jonas!
We were a bit surprised that Selena, 20, didn’t show up at 18-year-old Justin’s Dec. 15 concert in Chicago, and now we know the reason why: she dumped him! HollywoodLife.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY with a source VERY close to Selena, who confirmed the sad news.
“At this point, Selena isn’t going to any of Justin’s concerts ever again,” our source said. “She doesn’t want to speak to him anymore and told him it’s over.”
Furthermore, Selena thinks that Justin has been heartless in the wake of their previous split.
“Hanging out with Nick proved that he wants to just be a jerk about this, and Selena’s sick of being heartbroken,” our source said. “They are finished, and I think it’s for good this time.”
HollywoodLife.com previously reported that the Justin and Nick’s friendly evening together on Dec. 13 devastated Selena.
“Justin and Nick Jonas hung out all night,” our source said. “Selena was crying about it. He wouldn’t even return her calls when she found out and called him up.”
UPDATE: A second source of ours confirms the news to HollywoodLife.com that Justin and Selena DID break up.
OK, so it’s probably confirmed that Justin and Selena are done, thank God. Because Justin is a shitty little pill, and I don’t really have an opinion on Selena Gomez because she’s kind of boring, this is why I say ‘thank God’. I also say ‘thank God’ because Ronan Farrow, who is the son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, is way, way hotter than Justin Bieber could ever hope to be, and he’s probably nicer than Justin, even on his shittiest-person days.
Anyway, the above photo is a photo that was posted to Ronan’s Twitter feed with the caption “Do not challenge the lovely @selenagomez to a dance-off. You will lose”, which is actually pretty sweet. I mean, a whole lot sweeter than making a fool out of Selena in public places and being a generally-violent little prick who feels entitled to the finer things in life because of who he is.
Good catch, girl!
