Here Are The Names Of The New ‘Ghostbusters’


Are we all excited for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot? I have mixed feelings, really. I love the likes of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon, and I think Paul Feig has made some pretty awesome movies, but I was never a fan of the original movie and wish Hollywood would get back to developing original scripts. See what I mean? Either way, I’ll probably end up seeing it because it’s going to be a Big Thing, I might as well get on board and get excited. Especially since we’re learning more and more about the project as the days go by. We now know the character names, which is something!

Kristen Wigg will be playing Erin Gilbert and Melissa McCarthy will be playing Abby Yates. Kate McKinnon is playing Jillian Holtzmann, while Leslie Jones is Patty Tolan.

What do you think – looking forward to it?

Dead Man Found In Demi Moore’s Swimming Pool

demi moore

Well, this is more than a little insane. A 21-year-old man was found dead in Demi Moore’s swimming pool this weekend after what seems to have been a wild party. Moore wasn’t present, but it’s believed that her daughters have been throwing a ton of parties at her house lately and so it likely happened then. It’s believed that the man drowned on Saturday night and was found Sunday morning.

We’re told there was a party at the house.  Demi was not there … she’s currently out of town.  A law enforcement sources tells us none of Demi’s family was present.

A neighbor, however, tells TMZ, Demi’s kids have been staying at the house for weeks and have been throwing “parties every day, day and night.”  She says there are frequent pool parties.

Police are investigating.

The man who died did not know how to swim and it appears he slipped and fell in the pool, law enforcement sources tell TMZ.  We’re told there was no foul play.  Our sources say Demi’s caretaker threw the party and invited the victim.  They reiterated neither Demi nor her kids were there.

As for alcohol, we’re told there was “a limited amount.”

We’re told the caretaker and the others went out at some point leaving the victim behind, and when they returned they found him at the bottom of the pool.

That’s crazy, but what the hell? Why is Demi Moore letting her kids throwing parties at her house when she’s not there? Don’t they have their own mansions? Also, how the hell didn’t the kids realize that there was a dead guy in the pool? This whole thing is a mess.

Bill Cosby Gets More Disgusting By The Day

bill cosby

Just when you think Bill Cosby can’t get any more disgusting, he outdoes himself yet again. As more of that deposition in which he admitted to buying quaaludes to drug and coerce women into having sex with him has come to light, it appears he has no shame about his extramarital affairs and sexual abuse, and in fact even joked throughout his testimony, admitting at one point that he was “making light” of a very serious issue.

Here’s the report from the New York Times:

He was not above seducing a young model by showing interest in her father’s cancer. He promised other women his mentorship and career advice before pushing them for sex acts. And he tried to use financial sleight of hand to keep his wife from finding out about his serial philandering.

Bill Cosby admitted to all of this and more over four days of intense questioning 10 years ago at a Philadelphia hotel, where he defended himself in a deposition for a lawsuit filed by a young woman who accused him of drugging and molesting her.

Even as Mr. Cosby denied he was a sexual predator who assaulted many women, he presented himself in the deposition as an unapologetic, cavalier playboy, someone who used a combination of fame, apparent concern and powerful sedatives in a calculated pursuit of young women — a profile at odds with the popular image he so long enjoyed, that of father figure and public moralist.

He suggested he was skilled in picking up the nonverbal cues that signal a woman’s consent.

“I think I’m a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them,” he said.

Through it all, his manner was largely one of casual indifference.

At one point in the first day of questioning, Dolores M. Troiani, the lawyer for the plaintiff in the case, Andrea Constand, a young woman who worked at Temple University as a basketball manager, seemed struck by Mr. Cosby’s jocular manner.

“I think you’re making light of a very serious situation,” she said, to which Mr. Cosby replied: “That may very well be.”

I mean, it goes on from there, and the entire thing is absolutely disgusting. The fact that he was not charged and arrested right then and there and hasn’t been rotting in prison ever since is absolutely insane, and a terrible miscarriage of justice. What an awful excuse for a human being.

Scott Disick Is Still On A Major Bender

scott disick

Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian called it quits on their 9 year relationship earlier this month after Kourtney could no longer deny Scott’s cheating and partying ways and kicked him to the curb. You would think somehow this would be something of a wakeup call for him, but you would be wrong, because instead, he’s just been inviting a ton of girls over to his house to have orgies and trying to throw it in Kourtney’s face.

Moving on? While Kourtney Kardashian spent the day with her three kids at the Santa Barbara Zoo, Scott Disick was getting to know a bevy of scantily clad girls he invited over to his Beverly Hills, Calif., bachelor pad on Thursday, July 16.

The self-proclaimed “Lord,” who, as described by friends, has been on the “bender of his life,” moved into the $3.2 million investment property following his split from Kardashian earlier this month. On July 8 — the same day as daughter Penelope’s third birthday — a woman was seen removing Disick’s belongings from Kardashian’s Calabasas mansion.

“Kourtney has always known about rumors that Scott cheated,” one insider tells Us in the new issue, on newsstands now. “She just didn’t want it thrown in her face.”

“Scott is running off the rails,” a pal of the troubled star adds. “He can’t keep going like this. It’s scary.” Disick actually checked into a rehab facility in Florida on July 5, but as Us reported, he left after only six hours. Since arriving back in the U.S. from France, he has also postponed two club appearances.

Keep it classy, Scott. I’m sure your children will be so proud.

Calvin Harris Is Totally Into Taylor Swift & It’s Not Just For Publicity

calvin harris taylor swift

As I’ve said before, the whole Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris relationship really weirds me out. I just don’t buy it and I cannot imagine them together. I know opposites attract, but these two aren’t just opposites, they’re from entirely different universes. And while I can imagine it being genuine from Taylor’s side, since she’s a bit of a hopeless romantic and needs material for her new album, for Calvin, it seems quite obvious that this is all about raising his own public profile, and that seems to be working swimmingly.

Here are some things that Calvin had to say in an interview with KISS FM (via the Daily Mail):

On how their relationship is going:

“It’s going absolutely fantastic. It’s interesting because obviously there’s different things written about it every day and even if we don’t do anything publicly for a while, someone will make something up.”

On whether or not he minds all the media attention:

“For me it could be a lot worse and I’d still be like insanely happy with her, so I’m good with it.”

On trying to convince us that he really likes hanging out with Taylor:

“There’s a whole bunch of times where we’ve been hanging out and nobody’s clocked it. It’s not like every single time we go out, we get a photograph taken of us.”

On coping with dating a bigger star than he is:

“It’s a lot but you’ve just got to take it how it is which is that it’s a news story that people read but it’s just not real life.”

Of course not! The press totally wouldn’t bother you if it’s what you’re seeking in the first place! I mean, could this asshole be full of more bologna if he tried? I can’t deal with him. Hopefully Taylor gets away soon.

Woody Allen On Emma Stone: ‘She’s Really Got It All’

emma stone croods

Frankly, I’ve always found Woody Allen incredibly creepy and can’t see why anyone would want to be involved with anything he does, cinematic genius or not. But here we are, with Hollywood actors still fawning all over him despite how gross he is as a man. One actress in particular that’s taken a shine to Woody and vice-versa is Emma Stone. She’s starred in two of his films, Magic in the Moonlight and Irrational Man, and well, gee, he just thinks she’s swell.

“Emma can do everything: She can act, sing, dance, astonish, and she’s beautiful and intelligent. She’s really got it all. I was writing this script and I was worried about who could possibly pull off this part, and of course Emma could,” the five-time Oscar winner told Us Weekly.

He also explained that many share his sentiment. “Nobody ever has anything bad to say about Emma Stone,” he said. “Whenever I’ve mentioned I’m working with her on a movie, people brighten up, ‘Oh I love her!’ I know why they do. She’s just adorable.”

I don’t mind Emma – she’s okay, but I do think she’s a bit over-hyped and I don’t think she’s that great. Also, any white actress who finds no issue with playing an Asian character is a bit questionable to me, but whatevs. Woody likes her, and I guess that’s what matters? Ugh. The fact that he’s describing a grown woman as “adorable” and infantalizing her is particularly scary, given his history. Yuck.

Brad Pitt Is Mad At Costco For Using Caged Hens

brad pitt

There seems to be a bit of a movement at the moment regarding celebrities and free-range eggs. I’m not saying it’s not a serious issue, or one worth fighting for, but it does seem to be a strange preoccupation, particularly given all the MAJOR shit happening in the world around us. First Ryan Gosling came for Costco, and now Brad Pitt is joining the fight. He’s mad that the company is using caged hens, and decided to write an open letter to the company’s CEO, Craig Jelinek, to express his rage.

Here’s an excerpt from the letter (full thing can be read HERE):

“As you know, these birds producing eggs for your shelves are crammed five or more into cages that are not large enough for even one hen to spread her wings. In these cruel cages, the animals’ muscles and bones atrophy from years of immobilization. That’s why the cages are illegal in most of Europe, and why California banned the cages by an overwhelming vote years ago.”

In short, cramming hens into cages for their entire lives constitutes cruelty to animals, and animals deserve better. As you know, many major corporations, from Burger King to Unilever, are getting rid of cages — and Whole Foods hasn’t sold eggs from caged hens in years.

I admire Costco’s many positive social commitments. You’ve shown great courage and integrity on a range of issues. Won’t you please extend that sensibility — and basic decency —to chickens?

For people who aren’t all that concerned with the whole “basic decency” thing, Costco should also realize that eggs from free range chickens TASTE better, as well. Seriously, crack open a cheap egg from the grocery store and then crack one fresh from the farm, or an organic free-range egg, and you’ll see the difference right away in the yolk colour. Now, not everyone can afford $5 a dozen on eggs, so from a consumer perspective, our hands are tied. But it’s a supply and demand system. If free-range eggs become the norm, then the price to use them will go down, and that’ll be the standard offering. Come on!
