Bethenny Frankel is coming back to ‘Real Housewives of New York City’

YAAAAAAS. Best TV news I’ve heard all day: Bethenny Frankel is coming back to Real Housewives of New York City for season 7. Of course, this isn’t great news for her – clearly she’s only coming back because all the other shit she banked on taking off hasn’t really happened. The talk show failed, her marriage is over and I don’t think those Skinnygirl margaritas ever really caught on, either, did they?

That being said, Bethenny was on the show when it was at its height, and her resting bitch face (and non-resting bitch attitude) were a definite highlight of the show. She was somewhat the glue that held it together, drama-wise, and I loved her for it, so this can only be a good thing that she’s coming back.

From US Weekly:

The former talk show host, whose self-titled daytime program was cancelled in February, will appear in the show’s upcoming seventh season, insiders tell Us. Producers hope her return will help boost ratings, which fell to 1 million (from a record 2.6 million) during season six. “Bringing her back is a last-ditch effort,” one source says.

Frankel will benefit, too, by having an outlet to promote her Skinnygirl empire, which includes a cocktail line, shapewear, and several books, including a new children’s book, Cookie Meets Peanut. (The story was inspired by her 4-year-old daughter, Bryn, and her beloved dog, Cookie.)

This seems so juicy, I love it. They’re even talking about bringing Jill and Kelly back to “rehash” the old issues, though that’s just talk. Bravo is desperate since the show ratings are tanking (and no wonder – all the good people left!) but I will DEF tune in for this shit.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez break up… again

selena gomez justin bieber

I think this is about the 57th time I’ve had to write that headline. That’s right: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have broken up. Again. No idea what happened – one second he was cooking her meals and things were honky dory. Then they went on vacation together (as seen above) to St. Martin and things went seriously downhill.

No one really knows what happened, but by the time they got to the airport to leave, they were both clearly in a bad mood and they took separate flights out. Justin headed to Paris, where he was photographed having a champagne dinner with Kendall Jenner, and Selena went home and emo tweeted the following:


kidding me

WHEN WILL THIS MADNESS END?

Mila Kunis gives birth to a baby girl

It’s finally here! Just days after she was photographed looking absolutely miserable and long overdue while shopping in a Los Angeles Target, Mila Kunis has finally given birth to Ashton Kutcher‘s baby. It’s a girl, though we don’t yet know what the name is.

From TMZ:

Sources close to Mila’s womb tell us … Mila delivered Tuesday night at Cedars-Sinai — the hospital of choice for many celebrities.

We’re told they arrived at the hospital Tuesday around 6 A.M. … and were taken right to a delivery room.

They came by themselves — no entourage, no family.

Sources tell us Mila delivered right on schedule … and delivered right around the Jewish New Year.

Well that’s that! I bet she’s pretty stoked to not be pregnant anymore (as I imagine all women are when they finally give birth) and I’m sure the baby is adorable because most babies are, even if they do look like little wrinkled old people (isn’t that WHY they’re cute?). I’m sure more details will be coming out about this in the coming days, but for now, that’s all ya get.

Pink has a new music project called You+Me

you+me

Pink is an amazing musician who makes great music and I think we’ve all been waiting to see what she’ll do next. Well, it’s not what you’d expect. Alecia Moore (Pink’s real name) teamed up with Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green to form a group called You+Me. They’re about to release an album in a couple weeks’ time, and in advance, they’ve got a single called ‘Capsized’.

I have to admit this is an entirely different sound than we’d expect from Pink, which is, I suppose, the point. I’m not really sure how I feel about it – if I’m not all that into it because I like the music Alecia puts out as Pink, or I’m just not into it in general, but this doesn’t do much for me. Pink’s voice is incredible, though.

What do you think of ‘Capsized’?

Reese Witherspoon is all about the raw sex scenes

Reese Witherspoon is starring in Wild, which is based on Cheryl Strayed’s memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail. If you haven’t read it, it’s about a woman who goes on a journey of self-discovery following her mother’s death. It can be quite a deep film at times, and it includes some more intense sex scenes that Reese wanted to be totally real and raw because she’s a Very Serious Actress.

From Vogue:

“When people underestimate me, it’s actually a comfortable place for me,” she says. “ ‘Oh, that’s what you think I am; well, no, I’m not.’ I’m a complex human being. I have many different shades.”

The film is unflinching in its portrayal of the bottom Strayed hit after the death of her mother, dabbling with heroin and embarking on a string of one-night stands as if trying to awaken her grief-numbed senses. Witherspoon knew no studio would let her go there. “I just didn’t want to hear, ‘Oh, we don’t want to see Reese have sex. . . . Oh, can we not have any profanity?’ ” says Witherspoon. “I wanted it to be truthful, I wanted it to be raw, I wanted it to be real.”

Well, okay. Apparently Reese hired a hypnotist to help her lose herself during her sex scenes, which… I don’t really get, but whatever floats your boat.

Nick Jonas and his abs love their gay fans

nick jonas abs

You don’t really hear much from Nick Jonas these days, which is just fine by me. Last we heard, he was rumoured to be hanging out with Miley Cyrus, though she didn’t like that too much (and neither, apparently, did her then-fiancé Liam Hemsworth) and that was all the way back in 2013. Since then, nada. But at least now we know what he’s been doing with his time: a lot of crunches, it seems.

Nick covered the new issue of Flaunt, where he bared his toned body and… that’s sorta it, really. However, this should be enough for his legions of gay fans (and they are legion, apparently) – he sees you and wants you to be happy, as he told Huffington Post Live:

“I love it; I’m thrilled by that. I always had a pretty strong gay fan base, having been a theater kid…That’s a community that I love and have embraced, and [they've] embraced me. I love them. They’re so supportive.”

Aw, ain’t that sweet?

Nick, of course, has had his own share of gay rumours, not that it matters either way. Can’t a straight man cover Lady Gaga in peace?

I don’t know, guys – the Jonas Brothers were well past my time, so Nick and the others (whose names I can’t even remember at the time – I know there’s Joe?) are sorta off my radar. But nice gym work, bro.

Ben Affleck’s penis looks better in 3-D, apparently

ben affleck

Frankly, I don’t want to see Ben Affleck‘s penis in any dimension, but since he gets it out in Gone Girl, he’s been doing a lot of interviews to promote the film and questions are always asked about the full-frontal nudity. It’s apparently a short scene (no pun intended) but totally necessary to the character or whatever – and it looks better in 3-D!

From MTV News:

“I try to get it in every movie,” Affleck joked, after MTV pointed out that the movie includes what may be the first onscreen appearance of his Affl-ick. However, in this case it was director David Fincher who insisted on shining a bright light where the sun don’t shine, all in service of a film that captured the no-holds-barred cynicism of its source material.

“It’s ironic, because David [Fincher] said to me from the beginning, this is a warts and all movie. It can have no vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character,” Affleck continued. And yes, when he says “naked underbelly,” he means it literally as well as figuratively.

“There’s some brief, ah, very brief nudity, I think,” Affleck hedged. But when reminded that people might well be going to see “Gone Girl” for literally no other reason than to get a glimpse of his wang, he capitulated.

“The penis is in there!” Affleck said. “It’s IMAX penis! You’ve gotta pay fifteen bucks to see it in 3D… it’s better in 3D.”

Uh… LOL, I guess?

I’ve read the book so I’m not quite sure if I want to see the movie, especially since hearing that they completely rewrote the entire climax of the story for the movie version. How is that a thing that you do? I know it has to be good for cinema, but… wouldn’t you just not adapt it if the main crux of the story didn’t fit?

Anyone else read the book? Do you plan on seeing the movie?
