Rihanna is hot AND charitable

rihanna tom ford

Rihanna has been keeping a low profile lately (WHERE IS THE NEW ALBUM?), but she did step out to the amFAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles this week to honour Tom Ford by presenting him with the Inspiration Award and also wearing one of his Spring 2015 looks on the red carpet. The dress leaves little to the imagination in the boob department, but I think we’re all pretty used to seeing Rihanna’s chest region at this point, so it’s all good. She looked hot as hell!

There was also a high profile auction, the proceeds of which benefit AIDS research. Rihanna spent a whopping $135,000 on a pair of Harry Winston earrings and a picture of Elizabeth Taylor (lol). Weird, but great cause.

Amanda Bynes has been released from that mental health facility, after all

amanda bynes

It was recently revealed that Amanda Bynes would remain in a mental health facility for an additional 30 days of 5150 hold after she was evaluated by professionals and deemed to be seriously ill. However, that seems to have gone out the window since she went before a hearing officer on Thursday asking to be released… a request which was granted since she seems to be taking her meds and is somewhat lucid at the moment. And off she went, out onto the Sunset Strip. I’m afraid.

From TMZ:

Sources familiar with Amanda’s treatment tell TMZ … she went before a hearing officer at the psychiatric facility Thursday, asking to be released.  Amanda has been on her meds and sounds lucid, even though doctor’s say she is seriously mentally ill.

The hearing officer felt Amanda was stable enough so she could NOT be held involuntarily, so he ended the 30-day hold that had been granted last week and Amanda walked out the front door.

Amanda walked down Sunset Blvd., searching for a place to stay.  She then went to a diner where she ordered a ton of food which she devoured — fried chicken, salmon, caesar salad with guacamole, and a house salad with Italian and ranch.  She was chit-chatting with the waiter and said she was shy because she had a procedure on her face which required a bandage.

She was alone in the diner and was talking to herself.

Ugh, this is a tough one. On one hand, if she really was dedicated to getting the help she needs – taking her needs, visiting mental health professionals as an outpatient, not taking any other drugs or drinking, etc – but if there’s one thing that’s clear, it’s that Amanda will do what she needs to for as long as it takes to get out, and then she goes off the rails again. It must be really difficult for those who love and care about her, but how much control can you have over an adult? Again, 5150s exist for those who are a danger to themselves or others, but somehow, she manages to NOT be for long enough to get away, until she’s inevitably brought in again. I don’t think this is going to end well at all.

Ricki Lake has filed for divorce

Ricki Lake and Christian Evans seemed like a pretty okay couple, from what little I knew about them. However, everything wasn’t all that great in their marriage, apparently, since they only got married in April 2012 and now they’re getting divorced already. Yikes.

From People:

The 47-year-old former talk show host separated from Evans, 42, on Oct. 9, and filed for divorce a week later, according to court filings in Los Angeles. She is expected to pay Evans spousal support.

Lake, the mom of two boys Milo, 17, and Owen, 13, told PEOPLE in 2011 that she began dating Evans, a jewelry designer, during the summer of 2010. At the time, she described him as a “normal guy. We met through my best friend. He’s a nobody but he’s somebody to me. He’s everything to me.”

Huh, for things to go south so quickly, you’d think something big went on here – infidelity, perhaps, or something similar, but who knows? Either way, hopefully Ricki can find happiness again soon… and yes, I’m actually being sincere. What can I say? You caught me on a nice day.

‘Bachelor’ Juan Pablo Galavis is a major dickhead

nikki ferrell juan pablo galavis

Hey, here’s something that won’t surprise you at all: former ‘BachelorJuan Pablo Galavis is – in addition to being a homophobic misogynist – a total asshole who uses women to promote himself. That’s according to “sources” close to Nikki Ferrell, the “winner” of his season who received a declaration of “like” at the finale and went on to experience months of pure torture before kicking him to the curb.

“The main reason Juan stayed with Nikki was to spite all the haters who thought they would break up, and to stay relevant so he could promote himself,” the insider tells Us. “Juan wants to be a soccer or baseball commentator, and also a manager for high-profile Latin athletes.”

Pediatric nurse Ferrell, on the other hand, seems to have been legitimately invested in their romance — but when he wouldn’t meet her halfway, she initiated the breakup. “Juan did say ‘I love you’ to Nikki, but only a couple of times,” the source explains of Ferrell, 28. “She wanted [him] to say it every time they spoke, and he couldn’t do that.”

Indeed, a second insider shared that the two had conflicting visions of their future together. “Everything Nikki wanted, he didn’t,” the source previously told Us. “She wanted to settle down and he didn’t.”

Geography was an issue, too. “They were not seeing eye to eye on anything,” a third source said earlier this week. “Juan wanted Nikki in Miami. Nikki didn’t want to leave her family, friends, or job. Meanwhile, Juan wouldn’t even consider going to Kansas…She couldn’t get him to compromise at all.”

None of this is surprising at all. He didn’t love her; the only thing Juan Pablo loves is himself. And his desperation to be somebody – anybody- big in the sports world is hilarious. Not happening, bro. You’d actually have to work hard to accomplish something like that rather than throwing pool parties in Vegas and going on dating reality shows.

Nikki seems nice, though, and it’s good she got away. She deserves a medal for staying with him as long as she did.

Mama June’s kids are her first priority, apparently

mama june

Mama June has been rightfully coming under some serious heat since she’s split up with Sugar Bear and started hanging around with her ex-boyfriend again, who just so happens to be a child molester that sexually abused her own daughter Anna. Lovely. And while people fear for Honey Boo Boo now that McDaniel is back on the scene.

She’s denied being with McDaniel several times, but everyone knows she is – she even bought him a new car recently. But she still swears that her kids are her first priority and she’d never let anything happen to him.

From US Weekly:

No worries? Mama June gave a bizarre on-camera interview with E!, which aired on Wednesday, Oct. 29. The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star has been under fire recently after claims surfaced that she is dating registered sex offender Mark McDaniel.

The mother of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, Anna Cardwell, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, and Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon appeared unfazed throughout the interview, laughing, smiling, and throwing up the deuces sign. When asked about the loss of her hit TLC reality series, the Thompson family matriarch didn’t appear concerned, saying, “I can’t say anything bad about the show. I can’t say anything bad about TLC.”

The reporter then asked if June had been in touch with her eldest daughter Anna Cardwell, who claimed in a recent Entertainment Tonight interview that her mother’s boyfriend had molested her when she was 8 years old.

“I talk to her — I talk to all my kids,” the smiling reality star replied. “We’re all doing fine. We’re just hanging out as a family and handling it privately. The protection of my kids is my number one priority.”

I mean, this is just a hot ass mess, and that’s putting it lightly. I mean, in one sense, I get that she’s not going to come out and answer these questions with any amount of honesty. After all, how do you defend yourself against something like this? You can’t, because it’s wrong any way you slice it. What’s insane is that she’s still even agreeing to do interviews, considering. If I was that terrible of a person who was putting my kids in harm’s way (not to mention HER involvement with him, which… how could you even?) I would shut myself off from the entire rest of the world forever.

Miley Cyrus is the face of the 2015 MAC Viva Glam campaign

viva glam

Miley Cyrus may not be known for her mature and unique beauty looks, but she is becoming somewhat of a pop music icon (for better or worse) and MAC Cosmetics is looking to capitalize that. They’ve announced her as the face of their 2015 Viva Glam campaign, which donates 100% of proceeds to the MAC Aids Fund.

miley MAC

Starting in January, MAC will begin selling Miley’s collection, which consists of a hot pink lipstick ($16) and a shimmery matching lipgloss ($19). I bet you can’t wait to get your hands on that!

While Miley isn’t particularly my idea of an icon or anything, this is a project for a great cause, so I’ll probably buy it (and I’m sure plenty of others will, as well.)

Jessica Biel is (maybe) pregnant with Justin Timberlake’s baby

justin timberlake jessica biel

People have been wondering for years when Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake were going to start procreating, and according to some reports, that time is now. Radar claims that Jessica is pregnant with the couple’s first child. Their proof? A candid photo where her top sorta blew up and she looked like she had a “baby bump”. Kewl, sounds legit.

A pal close to the 7th Heaven star revealed the exciting news after weeks of feverish speculation and baby bump sightings.

“Jessica is at least three months pregnant,” the source said. “And she’s due in April!”

A second source revealed that the actress hasn’t had it easy getting pregnant in the past.

“Jessica has had tense times in the past when it comes to having a baby, so it is not surprising that she is staying mum on confirming the news publicly yet,” the other insider said.

Huh. Well, I guess it could be possible, but given that none of the legit sites are picking this up yet, sounds like hearsay. Who knows, though – maybe she will indeed pop out a mini JT come spring. We’ll just have to wait and see!
