The last we heard from Hope Solo, she was getting bitch-slapped by Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Dancing with the Stars. Well, now it seems the shoe is on the other foot and Hope is the one doing the slapping, as she was arrested in the early hours of Saturday morning for domestic violence against her sister and 17-year-old nephew. Whaaaaat?
From The Seattle Times:
Kirkland police have released the following account of the incident and arrest:
On June 21st 2014 and just before 1:00 am, Kirkland Police Department Patrol Units responded to a 911 call of a disturbance in the 10600 block of 124th AVE NE. The male caller stated that a female at the residence was “hitting people” and they could not get her to stop or to leave the house. Officer arrived and immediately heard the sounds of the disturbance inside the residence.
They entered and contacted several persons; one being Hope A Stevens (Solo) who appeared intoxicated and upset. As officers made contact, they observed visible injuries on Solo’s 17-year-old nephew and on Solo’s sister. After receiving statements of the persons involved, Officers determined that Solo was the primary aggressor and had instigated the assault.
Solo was arrested on 2 counts of Domestic Violence Assault 4th Degree and booked into the south King County detention facility (SCORE). Solo will have a mandatory court appearance Monday June 23rd at the Kirkland Municipal Court, with the time yet to be determined.
The Seattle Reign FC released a statement on the overnight arrest of the team’s goalkeeper, Hope Solo: “We are aware of the situation regarding Hope Solo and are currently gathering information. We have no further comments at this time.”
U.S. Soccer released a statement, too: “We are aware of the situation. At this point, we don’t have any further comments.”
Damn, what the hell? I know alcohol makes people get wild in various ways, and we’ve all heard (or possibly experienced?) drunk people getting violent, and it’s just not cool. I’m sure Hope feels awful now that she’s had time to sober up and consider what she did, but I think it’s a good idea if the woman never touches alcohol again. What the law should do beyond that I’m not quite sure – I suppose it’s up to whether or not her sister and nephew decide to press charges (which they most likely won’t want to do). What a nightmare – hopefully she gets some serious help.

You’ll have to watch the video to find out what on earth made Robert Pattinson think going into a fetal position during a taped interview would be a good thing to do.

Raise your hand if you believe that Drew Barrymore actually rides the New York City subway with any regularity, let alone sits down to do her makeup on the train. No one? Didn’t think so… but she’d have us believe that it’s just another day in the life of “stars are just like us”, as she posted the above photo to Instagram on Friday.
This picture was actually just a promo for a new concealer stick she’s releasing through her Walmart-only makeup line called Flower (which is actually pretty great – I own a few of their lipsticks and blushes) in January. Very subtle – and somewhat believable since we do know Drew is pretty down-to-earth.
I will say that her eyebrow game is looking strong, though.

You might think that Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey wouldn’t get along. They’re both alleged divas and they’re both female artists, which of course the press would love us to believe makes them mortal enemies. They’ve been rumoured to have a feud going for years, but uh… unsurprisingly, that’s not so! In fact, Jennifer is a big fan of Mariah’s and wishes they could be friends, they’ve just never had the opportunity to meet.
From Watch What Happens Live:
“I don’t have a feud against her — at all…we have never met. We don’t know each other…but I don’t know, I would love to meet her and I would love to be friends with her. I think she’s incredibly talented and I’ve always been a fan of hers. ‘My All’ is one of my favorite songs of all time.”
You can watch Jen’s interview below. What do you think – is she being genuine? Would Mariah shut her down? I can’t decide out of the two of them who I’d like to be friends with more. Probably Mariah, cause you know she’s just THAT ridiculous that you’d just laugh at her the entire time.

Of course Justin Bieber thinks he’s a total baller (in the most literal way possible). He went to shoot some hoops with some randoms yesterday at Equinox in West LA and managed to keep his shirt on the whole time (until he got outside, of course – then he had to go shirtless to show off his “muscles”). He doesn’t look like he did much on the court, but his desperation to have his trademark “swagger” even while trying to play a sport is both hilarious and pathetic.
One question: Where’s Selena?

I’ve never really understood the whole “posing newborn babies in gardens”, Anne Gedes world of photography, but I’m gonna give Kelly Clarkson a pass on the first pictures of her new daughter, River Rose, because she’s adorable (the baby and Kelly too, I suppose) and she’s a proud mommy.
Here is our beautiful baby girl River Rose; 6lbs 6oz, 18 inches, and the greatest thing on the planet :) pic.twitter.com/zMlwNQPpRw
