PopEater – Are the rumors about ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ being fixed true? Absolutely not, an NBC source tells me, although that doesn’t mean several celebrities haven’t tried. “You would be shocked at how many star’s producers invited to be part of the cast came back with a whole bunch of demands, including hair and makeup requirements and even what sort of flowers they needed in their dressing rooms,” laughed one producer. “One certain D-list personality who was divorced from an A-list musician overestimated her level of star power so much that she told Mr. Trump she would need to guaranteed to win if she agreed to participate!” Needless to say, she never got cast because we all know that the biggest ‘Apprentice’ star is already guaranteed to make it to the final episode. That would be Mr. Trump and his impossibly glorious hair.
EntertainmentWeekly – Pick a branch of the entertainment industry, any branch, and you’ll find stars who are as inextricably linked as is their animosity toward one another. Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen. Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd. Gargamel and Papa Smurf. The list goes on and on but curiously does not include the pair who are the subject of today’s blind item. [Read more…]

BlindGossip – Working on an ensemble project does have its perks. You’re part of the team, yet the whole project’s success doesn’t rest entirely on your shoulders. You get paid good money, but your time commitment is usually much shorter than if you were working on a typical project.
Two girls are part of this ensemble cast. They both behave professionally on set, but those in the know deliberately try to keep them apart during filming, post-production, and marketing.
Unfortunately, one can’t seem to ease up on the competitive and stealth undermining gestures. She tried to get her own name put first and in larger print in the credits than her co-star’s name. That didn’t happen. Then she stepped up her own PR efforts for their project, honoring twice the number of TV talk show appearances as her rival. Finally, she makes a very conscious effort to never, ever mention her rival’s name during interviews. If the interviewer brings up the rival’s name, our girl simply smiles and changes the topic. She’s actually quite skilled at it.
BuzzFoto – Which former Disney Star is trying to hook up with as many fans as he possibly can? He thinks while his name is still recognizable, he’s going to strike while the iron is hot. He’s bragged to friends and made a goal that he wants to be with a different girl, every night straight for the next new year! Not Joe Jonas.
BlindGossip – This gorgeous actor and gorgeous actress met on the set of a popular TV show in which they both had regular roles. They eventually became as close in real life as their characters were on the show. Given that their relationship seemed very healthy, it was little surprising when they broke up. It turns out that there was [Read more…]
BlindGossip – Personal Assistants to celebrities are the biggest secret keepers in Hollywood. They typically sign confidentiality agreements which legally prohibit them from divulging anything about their employer during or after their tenure. The PA to one big actor, however, got a little loose-lipped after a couple of drinks on a recent night out. While the PA was [Read more…]
BuzzFoto – This popular show, filming in New York has an actress that is a huge diva. She pretends to be kind when the cameras are snapping, but when she’s out of the limelight, she’s a real monster to those around her. She [Read more…]
BillyMasters – Could it be that one of the first celebs to ever take a slam at moi in a tabloid is eating his words? Way back when, this newlywed called me a “gossipmonger” – something I took as a huge compliment. He didn’t like that I diagnosed his marriage as DOA. It took a while, but it finally bit the dust. See? Told ya.
BuzzFoto – This recently engaged star bragged to friends that she has no intention of marrying her betrothed. She claimed to be milking the situation to help her career and in several months, after the paps and fans have lost interest, she’ll call the whole thing off and milk the rest of the publicity for the breakup. Not Katy Perry.
NYPost – Which aspiring socialite did the same kind of electronic spying that got Ali Wise in trouble, but managed to avoid prosecution? This lucky woman got caught hacking into the voice mails of her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend and could have gone to jail since she was on probation for a previous legal problem. But she turned on the charm so her love rival wouldn’t press charges, and now they are actually friends.
BlindGossip – This Oscar-nominated/winning actress has always advocated the crunchy, granola approach to life. Even her official bio boasted that she was raised in a family that valued intellectual pursuits over plastic surgery. That bio changed recently… along with her face. Really, girl, if you’re going to try to be coy about getting plastic surgery, maybe it would be better to not carry your overnight clothes in your hands as you exit a plastic surgery recovery facility. Then again, she’s not the only one in her family who cares more about image than reality. Yes, they’re racking up the dark secrets in that family.
Sorry all, how rude of us not to properly introduce you to today’s BV first! Meet Roxy—a gorg gal who likes everything in life to be of the highest and utmost class. Mainly when it comes to men.
Perky yet shy, vampy yet motherly, Roxy appears as if she’s got the perfect life: cute kids, successful career, A-list friends, and the most hunky husband, to boot.
Only problem is, that hubby o’ hers [Read more…]
BlindGossip – There are two gorgeous actresses with a similar look and of a similar age who are frequently up for the same part. A juicy role came along that both girls wanted. Actress A – who had previously worked with the film’s director – was approached early in the process, and was basically told that the role was hers.
The director then did a project with Actress B. He expected her to be professional but somewhat of an ice queen. Not only was he bowled over by how genuinely warm and friendly and funny she was to work with, but he was also thrilled to find that she garnered rave reviews from both male and female members of the cast (something that Actress A had failed to do). He asked Actress B if she would like the lead role in his new film.
To say that Actress A completely flipped out when she found out that the director decided to replace her with Actress B would be an understatement. There was some serious screaming, swearing, and crying involved. Well, at least Actress A is probably well stocked up on waterproof mascara.
BuzzFoto – This young B/C list starlet hasn’t been getting much work lately compared to her contemporaries. She is convinced it is because she is a little on the pudgy side (if bone thin means being fat). She is on a dangerous diet plan limited to cabbage and diet coke, and is even paranoid about drinking water because it she believes it has too many calories. The idea is a terrible one, and probably won’t do anything to her but give her a trip to the hospital. So dangerous and dumb! Not Rachel Bilson.
