Zooey Deschanel is being sued for breaking a horse

zooey deschanel

Here’s something you probably didn’t know but that won’t surprise you: Zooey Deschanel is a passionate equestrian. She loves riding horses and has apparently been competing in horse-related events for years. That’s great, right? Here’s what’s not great: apparently a horse she “leased” to ride was overworked and “broken” when returned to its owner, and now the owner wants Zooey to pay up.

From TMZ:

The “New Girl” actress is a hardcore equestrian — competing in events all the time — and allegedly “leased” a show horse to ride for $13k back in 2013.

In the suit, the woman who owns the horse, Patty Parker, claims Deschanel signed a horse contract … promising not to overwork the stallion (named Literati) with restrictions that included “no more than 3 jumping lessons per week.”

But Patty says … when Deschanel returned the horse … it was a shell of its former self — “injured and unusable.” Sad.

In her suit, Patty says Literati needed serious medical attention — and claims it’s on Zooey to foot the massive veterinary bills.

Huh. Zooey hasn’t responded to TMZ’s call for comments, and this whole lawsuit might be bullshit. I can’t see Zooey “Manic Pixie Dreamgirl” Deschanel abusing a horse, but if the horse was overworked or overtrained or whatever, that’s really awful, the poor thing. At least Patty only seems to be seeking fees for the horse’s medical fees and not some massive payout, which leads me to believe this may be somewhat credible…

Viral ‘Fat Girl Dancing’ Whitney Thore gets her own TLC reality show

whitney thore

I guess TLC is scrambling for some new and decent content ever since Honey Boo Boo-gate, and they’ve decided to give a reality show to Whitney Thore, the viral “Fat Girl Dancing” star whose, well, fat girl dancing skills took over the internet a few months back. Whitney, 30, deals with PCOS and is at the highest weight she’s ever been in her life. This show will hopefully shed some light on her condition and share her journey as she tries to stay fit and get rid of the pounds.

Here’s the trailer:

I seriously hope this turns out to be a positive experience and doesn’t just end up with TLC exploiting the shit out of this woman, though I do fear it’ll be the latter, as per usual. Whitney seems really intelligent, passionate and down-to-earth so I think a lot of people could get something out of this. I would totally watch it if I actually had cable (I’m not anti-TV, I just literally don’t own one because I watch everything online).

What do you think? Will you watch Whitney’s show? It’s called My Big Fat Fabulous Life, by the way.Oh, and if you needed a refresher, here’s Whitney’s original viral video:

Keira Knightley is pregnant with her first child

keira knightley james righton

Keira Knightley got married back in May 2013 to now-husband James Righton from the band Klaxons (in a wedding dress she recycled several times, no less!). Things have been going well for the couple, apparently, as she’s now said to be three months pregnant with her first child.

From Business Standard:

Sources have confirmed that the 29-year-old British star, who had married the co-vocalist and keyboardist for London-based band Klaxons in 2013 and has been nominated for Screen Actors Guild best supporting actress, is more than 3 months pregnant, the New York Post reported.

Rumors regarding had fueled when Knightley appeared to stay away from alcohol at the Moet British Independent Spirit Award, and wore an embroidered and billowy, ivory fur-trimmed Rocha dress which was different from her usual skin fit style.

Well, congrats to them! At least we know she got the naked photoshoot out of her system before the baby bump comes!

Meryl Streep is preaching truth again

meryl streep

Meryl Streep is absolutely wonderful, isn’t she? She’s always killing it both as an actor and an awesome human being, so I always listen to what she has to say (seriously – when I went to a press conference for August, Osage Country last year I nearly cried with joy just looking at her in front of me). This time around, she’s talking about youth and how our culture is so obsessed with being young.

“I would say our culture is pretty youth-obsessed,” the Oscar winner, 65, told PEOPLE at the Disney movie musical’s premiere Monday night. “Especially people that pass 40.”

Streep says when she turned the big 4-0, her acting prospects looked pretty bleak.

“When I was 40, I was offered three witch [roles]. I was not offered any female adventurers or love interests or heroes or demons,” she recalls. “I was offered witches because I was ‘old’ at 40.”

“Things have changed since then, I think,” she says. “That was 25 years ago. Now there’s so much more interesting stuff available. But still … ” she trails off.

I can totally see/hear her saying all this. She does this thing when she’s talking where it’s like her brain has so many thoughts that she goes off into another world, trying to figure out how to put what she wants to say perfectly. Sorry, I stan for Meryl.

What do you think? Are we too obsessed with youth? Is it getting better? Are you terrified of getting old?

Nicole Kidman is really glad she did ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ with Tom Cruise

nicole kidman

Nicole Kidman has been happily married to Keith Urban for many years now, and divorced from Tom Cruise for even longer. However, one thing they will always share – besides adopted children, that is – is their softcore porn roles in Stanley Kubrick‘s Eyes Wide Shut. Considered a cinematic masterpiece by some and an uncomfortable hot mess by others, the movie will live on in the annals of film for forever. And she’s pretty happy about that.

From Elle:

On Kubrick, Cruise and Eyes Wide Shut:

She credits the legendary Stanley Kubrick, who directed her and Cruise in 1999’s Eyes Wide Shut, for encouraging her: “He would always say, ‘You’re a character actress, Nicole. Don’t play leading ladies. Go and find the character roles.’” In fact, she says, she loved working with Kubrick so much that she didn’t mind the famously drawn-out, two-year shoot…and neither did her then husband. “We loved it. Everyone thought that was when our marriage started to break down—not at all. That movie was a great part of our life together, and I’m glad we have it.”

Huh, well good for them. But what does Keith think about the fact that his wife and her ex-husband are forever caught on film having sex? I mean, it’s a movie, of course, but that shit was real. Ah, well. Hopefully he’s secure enough to know that the past is the past.

Also, can we talk about what in Photoshop hell is going on with this cover shoot? It looks like someone got a bit too inspired by Powder and their hand slipped on the blur tool. None of it makes any sense. Nicole Kidman is (marginally) better than this.

Cuba Gooding Jr. will play OJ Simpson in a TV miniseries

cuba gooding jr

How the mighty have fallen, I suppose? Or not. Cuba Gooding Jr. – once a super bankable movie star – is following in the footsteps a lot of his fellow film actors and making the move to TV, where all the money seems to be (and quite a lot of great roles, too). What’s Cuba’s new role? Well, he’ll be playing OJ Simpson.

From US Weekly:

Casting closed! Ryan Murphy, the creator and producer behind American Horror Story and Glee, has cast Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson in his upcoming 10 episode miniseries American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. Sarah Paulson has also been cast as prosecutor Marcia Clark.

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson marks the first installment of Murphy’s upcoming FX anthology series that dramatizes true crime stories and chronicles the former football star’s infamous 1995 murder trial following the death of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson.

According to a press release, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson “is a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers that explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution confidence, defense willingness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.”

Ugh, wait, so this is a Ryan Murphy affair? Why, God, why? He’s THE WORST. I guess you can at least say his work is varied? I mean, you don’t get much more of a stark difference than Glee, American Horror Story and now OJ Simpson’s life.

I don’t particularly think that OJ Simpson deserves any more attention in this life, but I do think his story was a fascinating study in how fame and money can buy you a “get out of jail free” ticket, so to speak. Then again, he’s in prison now for robbery, so the law does eventually catch up with you (hopefully).
