Usher & Cee Lo Green’s Exes Dishing Dirty Secrets, In Talks For Reality TV Show

Categories: Uncategorized

usherTwo of the top judges on NBC’s hit talent show The Voice are about to be judged themselves — by their ex-wives who are ready to spill all their dirty secrets on a new reality TV show.

Usher and Cee Lo Green‘s ex-wives — Tameka Foster and Christina Johnson — are both in talks with VH1 to appear on the Atlanta-based version of Hollywood Exes, Star magazine is reporting.

The two men are not keen on the idea and an insider told the magazine that Cee Lo “joked that his ex may spill some of his dirty secrets” while Usher is genuinely concerned about the concept.

“Usher and Tameka don’t get along, and he knows she’ll be happy to talk about his personal life so that she can become the star of the show,” the source said.

“Usher’s concerned because she’s still bitter. Tameka is having financial problems and feels like this could be her meal ticket.”

Categories: Uncategorized

robRashida Jones and Rob Lowe are leaving “Parks and Rec.”

BuzzFeed reports the two will exit the NBC comedy midway through its upcoming sixth season. According to BuzzFeed, their exit will take place during Episode 13, likely airing as part of February sweeps.

NBC and a rep for Lowe would not confirm the report. Rashida’s spokespeople did not immediately reply to The Huffington Post’s request for comment.

According to Deadline, NBC wants to keep Lowe around: The network is reportedly in the process of finalizing a development deal for a potential new series with the actor, who has portrayed Chris Traeger, currently Pawnee’s City Manager, since the end of Season 2. Jones has played Ann Perkins, a nurse and Leslie Knope’s (Amy Poehler) best friend since the series began. Last we saw them in the Season 5 finale of “Parks and Rec,” the two characters trying to have a baby together.

This is the first major “Parks and Rec” cast shakeup since Paul Schneider, who played Mark Brendanawicz on the series, left in 2010.

Matt Damon’s ‘Elysium’ Workout Required Four Hours Of Daily Gym Time, Actor Reveals

Categories: Uncategorized

matt coverStars are no strangers to prepping for movie roles with unruly workout regimens. Just ask Matt Damon, who revealed on Monday that he spent four hours a day at the gym while readying himself to take on the lead in “Elysium.”

“[Director Neill Blomkamp] was so specific about what he wanted me to look like. He actually had a picture with my face tacked onto this guy with this body, and they literally hired me a trainer and I went to him with the picture,” Damon said. “It was four hours a day in the gym — and I’m not 26 anymore, but I got in shape.”

“Elysium,” in theaters Aug. 9, required Damon to shoot intense action sequences for the dystopian science-fiction story of Earth in the year 2154. The 42-year-old actor said Blomkamp, who previously helmed 2009 Best Picture nominee “District 9,” was “so particular about the effects, making them cutting edge and completely real.”

Damon joins Jennifer Aniston and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as celebrities who’ve revealed the arduous diets and physical work upcoming roles have required of them. Aniston portrays a stripper in “We’re the Millers,” a role that required her to adopt a specific diet of “greens and vegetables and lean proteins and kale.” Amplify that for Johnson, who is enduring a 22-week diet and heavy gym stints — not that that’s anything new for the former wrestler — to portray Hercules in a 2014 summer blockbuster.

O.J. Simpson Granted Parole

Categories: Uncategorized

ojO.J. Simpson‘s was granted parole by the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners Wednesday on some of the charges — kidnapping and armed robbery — in his 2008 conviction for his 2007 run-in with memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas.

The former Buffalo Bill, however, will stay behind bars at Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Center for at least another 18 months, as he’ll have to serve time for the conviction on four deadly weapon enhancements. Simpson, who’s been in custody for five years, was ordered to serve his jail terms consecutively.

The Paula Deen supporter’s parole will commence Oct. 2, and he’ll be eligible for a parole hearing on the enhancement counts a year from then.

Officials said the former Hertz pitchman was granted parole because he has no prior convictions, has behaved well while in custody and is considered a low risk to commit more crimes.

The record-setting running back, best known as the defendant in the “Trial of The Century” where he was found not guilty in the June 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.

Richard Burton’s Daughter, Kate Snubs Latest Biopic

Categories: Uncategorized

kateRichard Burton’s daughter refused to watch Dominic West’s recent portrayal of her famously fiery father, insisting she would rather the drama had not been made.

The Wire star plays the Welsh acting great alongside Helena Bonham Carter as his two-time wife Dame Elizabeth Taylor in BBC biopic Burton and Taylor, which aired to acclaim in the U.K. earlier this month (Jul13).

However, Scandal star Kate Burton has now insisted she has no plans to ever watch the TV movie.

She tells Britain’s Daily Mail, “Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West are such great actors so I’m curious, but I don’t think I’ll see it.

“I’m a character in it – there’s a person playing me! I’d much rather they (the BBC) didn’t (make it), but what are you going to do? They were larger than life, those two people. It’s a public story.”

Burton also reveals she wasn’t impressed with Lindsay Lohan’s much-maligned portrayal of Taylor in Lifetime’s TV movie Liz & Dick.

She adds, “The one that was on recently was so ridiculous. I never took it seriously. Please!… Lifetime can go ahead and make the movie without our permission. They could do whatever the heck they want.”

“Cheshire Cat Cry,” which features Lenny Kravitz, follows the previously teased single “Moonbeams” as the first track to debut as part of the great unveil. On the song, Ono sings, “We, the expendable people of the United States, hold these dreams to be self-destructive.”

In an interview about the album and her continued efforts in activism and the arts, Ono told HuffPost Entertainment that she was delighted by the idea of debuting the songs in such a manner. “That wasn’t my idea, someone here thought of it but I love that idea,” the 80-year-old said. “I thought, ‘Great, do it!’ It’s really great that you can do it that way because then people have the chance to think about the songs.”

“Take Me to the Land of Hell” was produced by Ono, Sean Lennon and Yuka Honda and features Nels Cline, tUnEyArDs, Questlove and Andrew Wyatt alongside Plastic Ono Band collaborators Cornelius and Cibo Matto. Mike D, Adrock and Keigo Oyamada contributed remixes.

Ono’s last studio album, “Between My Head and the Sky,” debuted in 2009 to favorable reviews.

Simon Cowell Expecting A Child With Married NY Socialite: Report

Categories: Uncategorized

simonSimon Cowell is expecting a child with socialite Lauren Silverman, the estranged wife of his pal, New York businessman Andrew Silverman, has learned.

“She’s around 10 weeks along,” an insider told US Weekly of the shocking news, noting that “Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while.

“As their marriage deteriorated,” the insider said, the 36-year-old beauty and 53-year-old British music mogul “became close.”

Images taken last August show the two in skimpy swimsuits on Simon’s yacht — her husband was on the boat as well — inferring that their relationship has been going on for some time.

After years of swearing off parenthood, the musical genius told AOL he “probably missed the opportunity” to be a dad after devoting decades to his work.

“I do really, really like kids, because I can talk to them and listen to them,” Simon said.

Simon’s past lovers include model Jasmine Lennard, makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy and TV host Terri Seymour.
