0One Direction announce new ‘Where We Are’ concert film

one direction

This one probably only applies to 12-year-olds and the parents of 12-year-olds, but here goes nothing anyway. One Direction are releasing a new concert film called Where We Are, an update to their previous release, This Is Us.

Here’s the guys announcing this POS that will no doubt make them even richer:

2Is Kendra Wilkinson pulling a Tori Spelling?

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott decided to try and make some cash off the fact that Dean can’t keep it in his pants, so they filmed a reality show about their marriage and made themselves look even worse in the process. Now it seems like Kendra Wilkinson might be following in their footsteps, as she plans on covering her marriage problems with Hank Baskett on the show – because in case you missed the news, he was apparently messing around with a transsexual prostitute while she was pregnant with their second kid.

From People:

A source close to Kendra on Top, Wilkinson’s reality show on WE tv, said the star won’t leave fans out of the loop following news that her husband Hank Baskett cheated on her earlier this year with a transsexual.

“Hank and Kendra are fully engaged in the show,” the source said. “People who want to see the two of them will definitely see the two of them. The cameras have been rolling. Viewers will get to see everything.”

Ay carumba. Does anyone really care about the sordid details of their relationship? Do THEY not care about keeping anything private? I seriously wonder what’s wrong with people. It seems privacy is an outdated notion in 2014.

1Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are dating

Someone bring a box of Kleenex and a pint of Ben & Jerry’s over to Nina Dobrev‘s house, because Ian Somerhalder has seriously moved on and is now dating Twilight actress Nikki Reed.

Here’s what little “scoop” we have from US Weekly:

The new couple was spotted out together all weekend, first jogging side-by-side in Los Angeles on Saturday, July 19, then cuddling at the Studio City Farmer’s Market on Sunday, July 20. Somerhalder kept his arms around Reed, kissing her on the cheek several times.

“Nikki Reed and Ian Somerholder are dating,” a source tells Us, noting that the pair were spotted having dinner last week in the San Fernando Valley. The pair also grabbed a bite to eat at Kiwami in Studio City on Tuesday, July 15.

Yep, they got “cozy” and there’s even a pic of that, too:

I wish I cared more about these two, but Nikki is D-List and Ian is like, B minus-List, so there’s not much doing there. I guess it’s nice that they’re happy?

But on another note, what’s with new couples wanting to work out together? Is this how people date in LA? First Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden and now this. I thought you went out for some dinner or to a movie or something, but apparently in Hollywood you run a 5k and then go pump some iron.

4Kris Jenner is releasing a cookbook because she totally cooks all the time

kris jenner cookbook

Kris Jenner is so desperate for attention that she’ll try anything to get it. Besides being the ultimate pimp for her three daughters, she’s also tried her hand at hosting a talk show and now she’s trying to pretend she’s ever set foot in a kitchen and releasing her own cookbook this October, called In the Kitchen with Kris: A Kollection of Kardashian-Jenner Family Favorites. Please, try to roll your eyes back to the front of your head.

From The International Business Times:

Jenner states that the inspiration behind writing the cook book is the huge amount of requests that she gets from friends for her recipes. The Kardashans are frequently seen entertaining during episodes of their reality show. In fact, even Giuliana mentions during the interview that she had once been a guest in Kris Jenner’s home.

Jenner mentions her grandchildren and states that she makes a mean grilled cheese sandwich that has become a favourite among her young grandchildren.

Why do I not believe that anyone asks for her recipes (or that she even has any)? Also, making a grilled cheese sandwich does not qualify you to release a cookbook. Are you kidding me?

nice try jan

If you do want to buy this piece of shit because you’re a masochist, it’s available for pre-order from Amazon for $19.25, which is a joke.

0Blake Lively’s lifestyle website, Preserve, is here!

blake lively preserve

Blake Lively has been teasing us with her new lifestyle website, Preserve, for a while now, but it’s finally here! The site had a quiet launch yesterday and looks so… cowboy. (I suppose that explains the Vogue feature!) It’s all very dark and makes me want to grab a Marlboro while I sip a cup of strong black coffee and look out over a prairie, but I doubt Blake would approve of smoking.

So far, there seems to be pieces on baby back ribs, the importance of bartenders (called “barmen”, of course), something called “Sex on Sundaes” that I daren’t click on, features on artisans and an editor’s letter from Blake herself. Here’s that joyous piece of writing in its entirety:

Sitting down to write this editor’s letter has been the hardest thing I’ve done yet on my Preserve journey. I’m more intimidated than I should probably admit. I’m no editor, no artisan, no expert. And certainly no arbiter of what you should buy, wear, or eat.

I am hungry, though… not just for enchiladas. I’m hungry for experience.

I’m comfortable with the knowledge that I’m not a teacher, but rather, a student. I don’t do any one thing perfectly. I do a lot of things though. Some well, some not-so-well.

I’ve been fortunate enough to travel. I’ve been all over the world and all over this country. There’s so much life teeming out of every pocket of this nation. There are people creating magic with their bare hands. Creating things which land at that amazing intersection between art and function.

I’ve found that when approached with a curious spirit, people are kind, they’re generous, they answer, if asked. They’ll often open their doors and hearts and let you in. Because people with wisdom have stories to tell, and want them heard.

Everyone has a story to tell. This idea is the cornerstone of Preserve.

So here at Preserve there are people, stories, essays, videos and goods which hopefully inspire your home, your style and your tongue. There’s expensive stuff. Inexpensive stuff. And everything in between. But their value, is up to you. We may romanticize it, calling it treasure. What we’re really saying is, we see worth on every level.

The function of Preserve is part magazine, part e-commerce hub, part philanthropic endeavor and above all, a place to showcase the power of imagination, ingenuity, quality, and above all, people.

Preserve is a creative space. A space which honors both tradition and innovation — a space which honors the future, while having a love affair with the past…

As for how we operate, we haven’t looked at Preserve as a new website, but rather as a new street. A sort of greatest hits of “Main Street, USA”. While the whole world races to keep up with technology, we tighten our laces, join the race, but our end goal is to preserve what’s already there.

A pretty lofty goal, a pretty lofty statement, but a group of determined hearts behind it.

As I wrap up, I have to recognize who Preserve really is now, before we’ve met you. “Preserve” isn’t me. It’s a handful of the most dedicated, soulful, wise, patient people I’ve ever had the honor of working alongside. People who’ve filled the pages of this site with a force of passion, talent and integrity. I’m grateful for our countless late nights building a home out of pixels, light and imagination.

We have a true team at Preserve, one that I acknowledge and thank my lucky stars for more often than I tell them. Although we may be tight knit, there will be no one more influential to the direction of Preserve, than you.

We’ve created this space to multiply our experiences. So Preserve.us isn’t just the U.S. It’s all of us.

Dear Christ, this really is Goop 2.0, isn’t it?

Have you checked it out? Will you? Will it rival Goop? Will it fail? Are baby back ribs really delicious? So many questions, so little time.

5Kim Kardashian is a dinosaur, Kanye West is a blowfish

kanye west

Don’t worry if you were as confused at reading that headline as I was writing it – it’s to be expected, considering who we’re talking about here. In Kanye West‘s new GQ profile, he spouts a lot of bullshit. Par for the course, right? But here’s something you probably didn’t expect: in the interview, he compares Kim Kardashian to a dinosaur (“in a good way”) and himself to a blowfish. I’ll let you read and enjoy:

Why’d you decide to get married?
Saying “Hey, I like Kim” isn’t as inspiring to people as us getting married. And anyone that’s in a relationship knows that in order to get to the point to get married and then to be married and to then carry on, it needs that work put into it. Right now, people look at it and it’s like, “Wow, that’s inspiring.” Meaning that love is infectious. You know, God is infectious—God flowing through us and us being little-baby creators and shit. But His energy and His love and what He wants us to have as people and the way He wants us to love each other, that is infectious. Like they said in Step Brothers: Never lose your dinosaur. This is the ultimate example of a person never losing his dinosaur. Meaning that even as I grew in cultural awareness and respect and was put higher in the class system in some way for being this musician, I never lost my dinosaur.

Kim is this girl who fucking turns me on. I love her. This is who I want to be next to and be around. And then people would try to say, “Well, you know, if you’re a musician, you should be with a musician, and if you want to design, you need to be with a girl from the design world.” I don’t give a fuck about people’s opinions. Because when a kid falls in love with an airplane or a bike or a dinosaur—especially if you’re an only child and it’s not because of the book that the sibling was reading—it’s like, fuck, you mean to tell me that the dinosaurs walked the earth and stuff like that?! That’s amazing! You mean to tell me that these giant multi-ton crafts can fly that fast and that loud, and they can flip, and there’s danger, the possibility of them exploding? That’s fucking cool! You mean to tell me that this girl with this fucking body and this face is also into style, and she’s a nice person, and she has her own money and is family-oriented? That’s just as cool as a fucking fighter jet or dinosaur! And just as rarely seen.

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHA Sorry, I just had to interrupt for that. Kim is as cool as fighter jets and dinosaurs? I just… sorry, I’ll let you continue.

Does that kind of mockery feel like an effort to de-fang you?
But also, there’s no fangs. I don’t have fangs. I’m a porcupine. I’m a blowfish. Like, I’m a—what’s the fish that blows up?

A blowfish?
Yeah. I’m a blowfish. I’m not a shark, I’m a blowfish. So that perfect example about me hitting my head, it’s like a blowfish. I wasn’t coming out of my house going to a paparazzi’s house to attack them. I’m defending my family in front of my own house. I’m defending my name as someone’s screaming something negative at me. That’s a blowfish. People have me pinned as a shark or a predator in some way, and in no way am I that. I wouldn’t want to hurt anyone. I want to defend people. I want to help people.

Whatever, man. I’m always rendered speechless when I hear/read/see what comes out of this guy’s mouth. It’s a whole new level of insanity.
