Shonda Rhimes confirms what we already know about Katherine Heigl

shonda rhimes katherine heigl

Shonda Rhimes is a brilliant woman – she created Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, after all – and she’s worked hard to get where she is. She’s probably had to put up with a lot of bullshit during her time in the business, but there’s one thing she simply won’t put up with: Katherine Heigl‘s nasty ass.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Although her perfectionist tendencies coupled with Scandal‘s breakneck story pace can wreak havoc on deadlines — “We’re always behind,” she admits — the operation runs smoothly and the cast is tight-knit. “There are no Heigls in this situation,” she says, choosing her words carefully. She adds later of her “no assholes” policy: “I don’t put up with bullshit or nasty people. I don’t have time for it.”

LOL, get it, Shonda. People have been pointing out how much of a miserable bitch Katherine Heigl is for years (and yes, I call men bitches, too, so I’m not being “anti-feminist” or anything of the sort. You act like a bitch, you get called a bitch. I’m an equal opportunity bitch-caller!) and frankly, it’s good to have confirmation from someone who formerly employed her. So not only did her co-workers think she was awful, but her boss did, too. Glowing reviews there, Heigl. No wonder you’ve been out begging for money.

Frankly, I don’t know how she dares walk around like her shit doesn’t stink. Did no one ever teach her that you catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar? My grandparents used to tell me that shit on the daily. When you’re trying to make a name for yourself in the public eye, you can at least PRETEND to be a decent person if you can’t actually manage to be genuine about it. I can’t wait for her new show to get cancelled, too.

Sofia Vergara is happy with her hotness levels

sofia vergara

Sofia Vergara is a very attractive lady, and I think pretty much anyone on the planet with eyes would agree with that, even if she’s not your personal cup of tea. It seems Sofia realizes it as well and she doesn’t suffer from a lack of self-confidence like many women seem to do.

“I was always very happy with what I have. I mean, like any woman I’d complain that my thighs were too big or whatever, but I felt comfortable with my curves –- people expected me to have them,” she tells Shape. “Then I hit 40 and started seeing a softness everywhere on my body… I knew it was time to do something.”

Vergara has been using the Megaformer machine, which is based on Pilates and the Strengthen, Lengthen and Tone philosophy. She also lifts free weights and drinks vegetable juices. Her motto? “No pain, no cake!”

Do we really think she uses this Megaformer or was she offered a cool $10k or whatever to mention the brand in her interview? Who knows, but I doubt Sofia Vergara would be obese if she had a piece of cake. Either way, it’s good to hear a woman not being self-deprecating or whining about the way she looks. Feel good about yourselves, ladies!

Mariah Carey wants Nas to set her up on a date

Mariah Carey has only been separated from Nick Cannon for a few months now (that we know of), but she’s already ready to move on – makes sense, especially if her hints about his cheating ways are at all true. So how will she find her next partner/short-term fling? Well, she’s hoping Nas will help her!

From US Weekly:

The pop diva “texted Nas, wondering if he had any friends she could go out with — or even just hook up with,” the insider says. “But Nas is nervous to introduce her to anyone.”

Carey and the hip-hop star have been friends for years, and even collaborated on the song “Dedicated,” the third track on her not-so-successful 2014 album Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. Rumors swirled in 2013 that the two were getting a little too close, but Cannon himself shut them down during an interview with Howard Stern earlier this year.

“[Nas is] a friend of mine, he’s a friend of hers,” the America’s Got Talent host said in April, pre-split. “She went to his birthday party, and I think it was in L.A. We actually talked about this before. It’d be very difficult to make me jealous.”

No one cares, Nick Cannon. It’s good that you were secure in your marriage while it was happening – but then if you were the one being unfaithful, I suppose you would be.

In any case, you wouldn’t think Mariah would need help meeting someone new, but asking Nas is so random. Whatever – get yours, girl!

Idris Elba is sweaty and shirtless

Idris Elba is working hard to train for his next film, Bastille Day (which seems sorta hilarious since Bastille Day is like, not a major holiday around these parts), and he’s gotta get in peak physical condition for the occasion.

Of course, he loves to treat his fans, so he posted a video on Instagram of himself all sweaty and shirtless, just for you.

Now imagine the prep he’d have to do for James Bond

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t care if you and Martha Stewart hate her

gwyneth paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow is basically THE WORST and we all know it – like, literally all of us, including Martha Stewart. In fact, Martha recently laid down some home truths to Gwyn, saying that homegirl needs to stick to acting and stop trying to be some lifestyle/homemaking guru like Martha herself. Gwyneth’s response? The methinks-she-doth-protest-too-much “I don’t really care, I’m just being me” rant, which includes a healthy dose of, “She’s just insecure!” bullshit.

Here’s what she had to say at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit on Tuesday:

First of all, no one has ever said anything bad about me before, so I’m shocked and devastated. I’ll try to recover. [Laughs]

If I’m really honest, I’m so psyched that she sees us as competition. I’m so psyched. I really am.

I think that when anybody criticizes anyone, it’s revealing more about where they are in time and space as opposed to where you are in time and space. I think generally we tend to lash out if we’re in a, you know it’s usually a reflection of something else. At this point in my life I don’t take it personally. I see it as a projection. And if there’s ever anything that sticks then I know, “oh, I’m holding this judgment against myself and I need to look at that.” And you know sometimes I learn good things from criticism.

To be fair, I mean, I guess she handled it already. How else can you respond to an ice cold diss like the one Martha laid down? However, to say it’s a “projection” – that Martha Stewart has ANYTHING to be intimidated by when in comparison to Gwyneth Paltrow – is so fucking high and mighty I could smack her. Nice try, Gwyenth.

Amanda Bynes caught shoplifting twice in one day

amanda bynes

Amanda Bynes has been living it up in New York City, it seems – wearing band-aids on her face, announcing fake engagements, clawing fans on the arm and now shoplifting… twice in a day!

From TMZ:

According to our sources, employees at Pookie & Sebastian began following Bynes around the store because she was acting suspicious. We’re told they didn’t recognize it was Amanda, and just thought she was a “half-naked, homeless crackhead.”

Customers tell us Bynes was dancing and muttering about plastic surgery — but eventually she tried to bolt with a shirt stuffed between her arms. When an employee stopped her and asked if she was going to pay, Amanda said … “Do I really have to buy this?”

The answer, of course, was yes — and we’re told Bynes was actually cooperative … whipping out a credit card to cover the $128.

Earlier in the day, she was accused of stealing a $200 hat from Barney’s since, you know, she put it on her head and then tried walking out of the store with it on without paying for it. In the real world, we call that stealing. In Amanda’s world, it’s a misunderstanding.

“I was walking out of the store to get my handbag out of the car,” Bynes, 28, told PEOPLE on the phone Wednesday. “I had been harassed by a man – a man and this woman were basically trying to take my picture inside the store, and so I asked them to stop taking it, but they wouldn’t … They were like paparazzi but undercover.”

Bynes says one of the security guards knew she was leaving and would be back but that there was a miscommunication with another guard.

“I walked out of the store, and the sensor went off,” she says. “I didn’t realize I was wearing my cap. And the cap – I was purchasing it, and I was actually still shopping.”

Bynes also confirms the store asked her not to return. “I basically just had to leave,” she says. “They said, ‘Please, just don’t shop at Barneys anymore.’ But oh well. It’s fine.”

Yeah, except when you’re going to get your purse, you don’t take the merchandise you haven’t paid for with you. You get your wallet and then you come back in and pay for it, and THEN you get to take it. That’s the way shopping works.

Then again, this is just another example of why it’s so disastrous for this girl to be off her meds – she’s obviously mentally ill, thinking that “undercover” paparazzi are trying to follow her (especially when she purposely invites that attention half the time, anyway). It’s such a shame, but this is all just going to keep going further and further downhill.

Paula Patton finally filed for divorce from Robin Thicke

paula patton robin thicke

Praise the Lord, y’all – it’s truly a day for even the non-religious among us to be thankful to a higher power, because Paula Patton has FINALLY filed for divorce from scumbag husband Robin Thicke. They’ve been separated since February, but Paula decided to stew and let Robin humiliate himself for a few months before finally filing the paperwork earlier this month.

From People:

There are no blurred lines about it: Paula Patton has officially filed for divorce from her husband Robin Thicke.

Patton – who married Thicke in 2005 – cited “irreconcilable differences” in papers filed in Los Angeles on Oct. 3 and is asking for joint custody of their son, Julian Fuego, 4.

Personally, I don’t think Robin is particularly fit to be around children on his own – especially with his recent behaviour – but I guess they can work that one out for themselves.

Selena Gomez, take note – even if it takes years, you can eventually love yourself (or at the very least, respect yourself) enough to get rid of the shitbags in your life.
