Michael Phelps’ girlfriend reveals she was born intersex

Because apparently this is news, Michael Phelps, Olympic gold medal winning swimmer and lover of substances both inhaled and drunk, has a girlfriend. And that girlfriend has just announced publicly that she was born intersex. While this seems like a private matter that no one should ever have to discuss publicly if they’re not so inclined, Phelps’ girlfriend, Taylor Lianne Chandler, apparently felt like she needed to clear up inaccurate reports after stories started appearing claiming that she was born male and later became a female.

In actuality, Taylor was born intersex, with male external genitalia but no testicles and a uterus but no ovaries. She actually underwent corrective surgery to remove the male genitalia in her 20s and began taking testosterone blockers around the same time. She has always lived as a female.

From Taylor’s Facebook page:

‘I was never a man, never lived as a man. No one can say they knew me as a man or produce a photo of me as a man.’

She then adds, ‘There are people that remember me as an androgynous child at times because of what was forced upon me.’

She is also revealing how in love she is with Phelps, and claims the two clicked after meeting on Tinder.

‘Spending time with him was like a teenage love affair,’ she says.

‘I have never felt so comfortable and accepted in every way as I did with him.’

Apparently they have an amazing sex life and it’s all great – so where’s the problem? Well, apparently she never told Phelps about this. She insists that she never lied to him, it just never came up and now she’s afraid that he won’t want to be with her.

This whole situation is a mess that should NOT be playing out in public. It’s between two people – and the problem isn’t that she’s intersex, but I suppose that she kept something so important from her partner. But again, that’s not for me to cast judgment on. In other words, nothing to see here…

Two new Beyonce tracks have leaked… sorta


Beyonce is set to release a new album soon, and the Beyhive is desperate to hear what it’ll be like. Luckily for the fans, snippets of two tracks – one called ’7/11′ and another called ‘Ring Off’ – have leaked online. The verdict? Eh… I don’t quite know, really.

First, let’s listen to the bit of ’7/11′, which sounds like a continuation remix of ‘Drunk In Love’ or something. Have a listen:

And next, it’s ‘Ring Off’:

I get that Bey is really embracing her hood roots and I love that about her, but I just don’t know about this. Again, these tracks feel like further ruminations on what she started on the self-titled album, and I’m sure it’ll be good and do really well because hello, it’s Beyonce, but she’s really hitting up the experimental phase in her career, it seems – and I don’t know what it all means, really. Ah, well, we’ll just have to wait and see. We should know something either way on November 24.

Kim Kardashian wants to adopt Thai girl, but girl says ‘No, thanks!’

kim kardashian pink

Leave it to Kim Kardashian to head to Thailand to film Keeping Up with the Kardashians and fall in love with a teen girl she met at an orphanage because she was “pretty” and had a “nice personality”. The girl, called Pink, became the apple of Kim’s eye to the point where Kim wanted to adopt her… a tempting offer, but not one that Pink was really into. She very politely declined Kim’s offer. ICE COLD!

From The Daily Mail:

A teenager from a children’s home in a poverty-stricken region of Thailand made an astonishing decision to turn down an offer from reality TV star Kim Kardashian to adopt her into a life of wealth and glamour overseas.

The level-headed 13-year-old called Pink said she shook with excitement when she heard the multi-millionaire wanted to adopt her, but insisted she wanted to study in Thailand instead then help her impoverished homeland and the orphans she has grown up with.

The girl with a sunny smile stole Kim’s heart when she visited the ramshackle children’s home in Thailand’s Phang Nga province, a region where more than 4,000 people perished in the 2004 tsunami.

Pink, an outstanding scholar whose mother sent her to the home because she was too poor to care for her and fund her education, immediately bonded with Kim and gave her a bracelet in a visit in April filmed for her hit show Keeping Up with The Kardashians.

But after being told the reality TV star wanted to adopt her, Pink said: ‘Everyone wants to have a different or a better life, I suppose. But when I thought about it I realised it wouldn’t be good for me, because I would have to leave so much behind. I wasn’t ready for that.’

After the visit, Kim declared on camera: ‘When you meet someone that you really connect to like this, you can’t help but think like how you could change their life. And I think that looking into adoption would be amazing.

‘I literally cannot stop thinking about her. I told (husband) Kanye, I was like, honestly, this girl is so sweet and so cute, like, I would honestly adopt her.’

She then appeared to abandon the idea after being chided by her mother for treating adoption like a shopping trip and then told by her resort manager that adopting children from Thailand is ‘very, very difficult’.

But Mail Online found that Pink was taken aside and told by the home’s supervisors about Kim’s adoption wish in the show which went out in August and, although delighted at the offer, immediately said a polite but firm ‘no’.

Good for you, Pink! It would be one of the worst decisions in your life to move in with Kim Kardashian. Keep up the good school work and you’ll do just fine. Also, of course Kim Kardashian wants to adopt a kid because she’s “pretty”, and she thinks adopting someone is something you just do on a whim because it strikes your fancy that day. Christ almighty. Someone save North West before it’s too late.

Kate Hudson is a Farmville character now

kate hudson farmville

Kate Hudson has made dozens of movies and has millions of dollars, but I’d say the highlight of her career has to be the fact that she’s now been animated and turned into a character in that awful Facebook game that your “friends” won’t stop sending you. That’s right: Kate is part of Farmville.

From People:

Starting Tuesday, fans of the FarmVille 2: Country Escape game will meet an avatar based on the actress, who, along with longtime fiancé and Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy, produces Hudson-Bellamy Wines. Players will get to virtually make both Hudson’s wine as well as her own fig burrata flatbread recipe, which she told PEOPLE was inspired by “fall, my absolute favorite time of year to cook.”

Hudson said that both she and Bellamy play the Country Escapes version of FarmVille, which she calls “engaging and adorable,” and that the experience of appearing in it has made her rethink her wardrobe a bit.

“Creating the avatar was really fun and it’s always funny to see yourself as a cartoon character. We got a good kick out of it, although I will say I’m really digging the outfit and I may need to go purchase some short overalls,” she said.

Uh… how did I not know that Kate and Matt Bellamy make wine? Who do they think they are, Brad and Angelina? This is the most bizarre marketing I’ve ever seen, in any case.

Dave Chappelle once bought weed from Idris Elba

dave chappelle

In what’s actually a hilarious tale of “It’s a Small World, Even in Hollywood”, it turns out Dave Chappelle probably bought weed once from Idris Elba before either of them got famous. Hilarious!

From a sit down interview with GQ:

Idris Elba once said he used to sell weed at the New York comedy club Carolines. That can’t be true, right?

Oh, okay. So he used to work at Carolines. During that era of my life, there’s a high possibility that I bought reefer from Idris. Fast-forward to when I was doing Chappelle’s Show. Idris would come to the set sometimes. Not the set where we’d be filming sketches, but the set when we did the live portion of the show and we showed the audience sketches. It used to be a real hot ticket in New York. There’s a lot of women who used to work on the show…all very professional, with the single exception when Idris would come around. It doesn’t matter how big a star would be on the show, when he came around, women would just lose their goddamn minds.

So it turns out ladies always loved Idris – not that that’s surprising. The more you know! So what did Idris look like back in the day, anyway? This is what Google brought me, after much searching:

I must say, I think he looks much better now – but what about you? Would you hit it?

Kristen Stewart doesn’t care that you saw her nipple

kristen stewart

Kristen Stewart accidentally slipped a nipple at the Hollywood Film Awards last week (squint and you’ll see it) and it was reported that she’d freaked out about the whole thing and was all bent out of shape ‘cos everyone saw her niblets. Turns out, that’s not true at all – like most things, Kristen doesn’t really give a shit.

From Hollywood Life:

“She is not worried about it. It’s not a big deal.,” a source revealed to EXCLUSIVELY. “If people want to see her naked she’d rather it be from the movies she has done with nudity but this happened and she has already forgotten about it.”

“It’s not like the Fappening and certainly not the worst thing cameras have caught from her. Not a big deal at all.”

I can’t believe whoever this “source” is actually used the words ‘The Fappening’. Makes it seems a little less legit, doesn’t it? I do believe that she doesn’t care, though. Why would she?
