Ben Affleck cut Mark Ruffalo’s friendship with Jennifer Garner short

Apparently Mark Ruffalo used to be bosom buddies with Jennifer Garner for a while. They met on the set of the 2004 movie 13 Going on 30 (shit movie) and immediately hit it off on a platonic level. Things were going great and they had an awesome friendship going… until Ben Affleck came on the scene.

Mark appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last week and was asked by a fan if he and Jennifer still keep in touch. Here’s what he said (via US Weekly):

“We had a great time together, and I think we would, but then Ben [Affleck] came on the scene and that was the end of that,” Ruffalo said smiling.

“I heard he doesn’t allow her to have male friends,” host Andy Cohen said, joking, “I made that up!”

Ruffalo shrugged and pled the fifth, adding that it was “sad” he hadn’t stayed close with the Alias star in the 10 years since the film was released.

So… what happened here, do we think? Did Ben Affleck tell his future wife that she couldn’t be friends with Mark? Did Jennifer get so sprung off Ben that she was no longer interested in being friends with Mark? It’s all so dramatic! (Not really, but go with it.)

Bobbi Kristina at war with Angela Bassett over Whitney Houston biopic

bobbi kristina bobby brown

Lifetime is producing a Whitney Houston biopic later this year, with Yaya DaCosta in the title role and Angela Bassett in the director’s chair. That’s all fine and well – no one’s expecting it to be genius, but it’s a nice tribute to the late singer. The only person unhappy about this (instead of just apathetic) is Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who is a bit put out that she wasn’t cast to portray her mother… despite the fact that she’s not even an actress.

Here’s what Angela said recently in an interview with Entertainment Weekly:

“I did not think about casting her. And probably for a number of reasons, you know. One being that she’s not an actress. I know she’s acted here and there. I know she’s been on their family’s reality show, but she’s not an actress and acting is a craft. It’s an attempt to illuminate the complexities of human behavior and life. And this is a very fast-paced schedule; we have just 21 days to tell this story. It’s more than just saying lines and turning the light on. You have to drive the story—there’s a technical aspect.”

Could that be seen as a diss? Eh, maybe, but she’s just speaking the truth. However, Bobbi got all up in arms and retaliated on Twitter, as you do, by claiming that she’s going to be an award-winning actress and calling Angela a man.

Oh God, grow the hell up, Bobbi. First of all, Angela Bassett has more talent in her pinky finger than Bobbi Kristina has in her entire body. And any talent she may have is completely overshadowed by the fact that she’s an insufferable brat. Between this and the antics of her brother/husband, the Houston family is really not doing Whitney’s memory and legacy any favours.

Justin Bieber wants a piece of Amber Rose now, apparently

justin bieber amber rose

Last we heard of Amber Rose, she was rather happily married to Wiz Khalifa and enjoying being a mom to their son. Well, apparently that made no difference to Justin Bieber, who apparently gave his number to the model and got super chatty at a Hollywood party last Thursday.

From Radar Online:

Justin Bieber may be back together with Selena Gomez – but it doesn’t mean he only has eyes for his on-again, off-again love.

In a move that could upset the often jealous Gomez, the troubled singer, 20, got close to model Amber Rose, 30, at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards after-party sponsored by Bai5 in West Hollywood nightclub Bootsy Bellows on Thursday night, sources tell RadarOnline.com.

“Justin walked over to Amber’s private table and they began chatting,” an onlooker tells Radar of the pair’s party run-in. “They talked for more than 15 minutes- and even exchanged numbers. She was smiling and laughing.”

LOL, I’m going to call bullshit on this one – if only on Amber Rose’s side. Not that Wiz Khalifa is some great prize, but as if a grown ass woman is going to go for this little boy? I don’t think so. Of course they did meet up – it was an ASCAP event, so it makes sense – but I guarantee you homegirl had zero interest in Wannabe Thug Jr.

Miley Cyrus won’t stop getting new dogs

Remember how Miley Cyrus was all distraught over her dog dying, and then she went out and adopted a new puppy, only to decide she didn’t want it after all and gave it away? Well, she’s back in the game and has ANOTHER new dog now – a little collie called Emu Coyne Cyrus, as she revealed on Instagram.

The dog is cute, sure, but I feel like the girl has a serious problem when it comes to pets. If she “wasn’t ready” to have a dog a few weeks ago and gave it back, why would this one be any different? What, if it shits on the floor then suddenly she’s going to go into mourning again and get rid of this one, too? SMH.

And, as is the case with Miley, a selfie wouldn’t be a selfie without some degree of nudity. Here we go!

Jennifer Lopez turns up the heat in Miami in weird outfit

I suppose Jennifer Lopez knows what’s trendy far better than I do, but I’m still not quite sure about the bodysuit/jacket combo she wore in Miami on Saturday for her concert at the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party. She performed a full 40-minute set in this brightly coloured metallic get-up, and it’s weird as hell, but somehow she manages to pull it off – presumably because she’s JLo and she can get away with wearing pretty much anything.

Here’s her full set, for those who are interested in seeing ‘Booty’ performed live. Don’t lie, you know you want to.

Elton John Says Jesus Would Support Same-Sex Marriage

Elton+John

Elton John had a few words to say about the church and gay marriage, mainly that he believes Jesus would be all for same-sex marriages. Here’s what he told Sky News, via Huffington Post:

“These are old and stupid things,” John said of the restrictions that prevent gay priests from marrying and having sex. “If Jesus Christ was alive today, I cannot see him, as the Christian person that he was and the great person that he was, saying this could not happen. He was all about love and compassion… and that’s what the church should be about.”

Do you agree with him? Or do you have a problem with Elton John speaking for Jesus?

John is still planning his wedding to longtime partner David Furnish.
