Zoe Saldana got married to now-husband Marco Perego last December, and while she may be happy in her current relationship, it took a while for her to get to that point. Before that, she was in several shitty relationships and she’s learned a lot of things she wants us all to know.
From Marie Claire:
On her relationship with husband Marco Perego: “I don’t do the ABCs. I do what my heart says, what my heart feels. So from the moment
I met my husband, we were together. We knew.”
On the biggest thing she’s learned about relationships: “Not to settle. If you’re not happy with a person, leave. And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow.”
On disrespect: “I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”
Well, that’s that, I suppose? I don’t know many people who stay friends with their exes after the relationship ends, regardless of respect or otherwise. I know it’s possible and it does happen, but I wouldn’t say that’s the norm.
How many of you are still friends with your exes?

Anna Paquin is done with Sookie from True Blood, so now it’s time to change up her look a bit and get down with the kids or whatever… which is, I suppose, why she decided to dye her hair bright purple.
It does look pretty cute, actually – I would love to do something like that, but the time to lighten my hair enough to do it – not to mention the upkeep and the fact that I do have to go out in the real world and am a grown adult – really puts me off.
What do you think? Stephen Moyer seems to like it!

It’s not really shocking in any way, shape or form that Farrah Abraham is possibly one of the worst mothers on planet earth. She’s immature, self-involved, has no self-respect and is a money-hungry woman who will degrade herself and everyone around her for cash. That’s no shade against sex workers, but I think we can all agree that Farrah has no dignity.
That being said, I don’t think anyone will be surprised to know that when asked how she’d feel about her 4-year-old daughter Sophia making her own sex tape one day, she wouldn’t be all that bothered.
“She probably won’t be saying that, she’ll be like ‘I HAD to try it,’ and then I’ll be like ‘oh, you already did it, so I’m just going to say make sure you know what you’re doing with it,’ because, you know, I’ll be like ‘this is what happened to me as your mom.’ It’s like mommy talk. It’s the birds and the bees, and so you just share ‘look, I learned this from it, I hope you don’t do that, read ‘Celebrity Sex Tape,’ learn some lessons from Fallon Opal,’ but that’s really all I can say.”
Then, she also wanted us to know how different she is from Kim Kardashian and Jenna Jameson:
“I have a different future for myself, and I think, you know, there’s a Kim Kardashian, there’s a Farrah Abraham, there’s a Jenna Jameson,” she explained. “We all have our own past. And however we get there–from the TV shows we go on to our life experiences–it’s how we live it, and I think each of us is doing it in the right way for where we want to be.”
LOL, okay. Whatever to this delusional idiot.

Vanessa Williams has been through some SHIT in life, man. She recently opened up to Oprah about the fact that she was molested as a 10-year-old by an 18-year-old daughter of her friend’s family – an incident which affected her for many years to come and which she believes made her more sexually promiscuous at a younger age.
“One night she came into the room where my friend and I were sleeping, and she told me to lie down on the floor. She took my bottoms off and she said, ‘Be quiet,’ and she went down on me,” she recounts again on the OWN show. “I knew it felt good, but also something that was not supposed to be happening.”
Williams said she was “conflicted” after it happened and wanted to speak to her family about it. But when she returned home from the trip, she discovered her father’s brother passed away, so she chose to suppress the incident.
However, she now realizes that despite her best efforts to forget about what happened, it found a way to bubble up to the surface.
“At that young age, having that happen to you in your body, it awakens your sexuality at an age where it shouldn’t be awakened,” she said.
“I think had that not happened in my life, and I had an opportunity to have a normal courtship with a boyfriend at 16 or whatever … there wouldn’t have been that shame that was always haunting me.”
I suppose victims of sexual abuse do go one way or the other – they can develop severe intimacy issues or become more promiscuous. Of course, there are others who are lucky enough to receive counseling and therapy and can carry on as “normal” a life as possible, though I think it always probably sticks with you in some way or another, even if subconsciously. It’s brave of Vanessa to speak out about these things – hopefully she’s found some peace in her life.
Here’s some video of Vanessa talking about the experience:

Selena Gomez is a hot ass mess and everyone knows it (except for her, clearly). She has some obvious self-esteem issues, poor judgment skills and some substance abuse problems, as well, but you know, other than that, she’s got it all together. That’s why she got a super ironic – and particularly obnoxious – new tattoo that’ll make your eyes roll so far back in your head, you won’t be able to finish reading this story.
You see, Selena’s tattoo is in Arabic – a language she doesn’t speak from a culture which she’s not part of – and it apparently translates to “Love Yourself First”. I’ll give you a minute to process that and get it out of your system. HAHAHAHAHA! If there’s one piece of advice most people would give to Selena, it’s that she needs to love herself, because she’s constantly lowering herself and making the worst possible decisions with her life. From the repeated reunions with the world’s biggest human shit stain, to leaving rehab for alcohol addiction early to go to Sundance, to throwing wild parties that get the cops called on her and then trying to make up for it all by lecturing Instagram users… if she loved herself, half her fuckery wouldn’t happen.
