Which actor is completely confusing Santa this time of year? She made contributions to several charities during this holiday season. Sounds generous, right? Except that she then sent notes to her staff telling them that in lieu of a holiday bonus, that donations had been made in their names to a charity (no, it wasn’t The Human Fund!). Naughty or nice?
Who is going to have to pay through the nose to stay in the closet? Sometimes a gay actor will marry a member of the opposite sex in the hopes that it will boost their hetero credibility and expand the range of roles offered to them. The trouble with this strategy is that if the relationship doesn’t last, the ex has a tremendous amount of leverage over the actor. Such is the case of this network TV star whose fake marriage is over. The star’s attorney is trying to get their client to settle quickly and quietly to prevent the ex from spilling secrets. However, the star is now weighing the hefty cost of paying off the ex versus outing themselves.
Which professional athlete from a major city is playing Scrooge this holiday season? He makes millions every year from his sport, and millions more in product endorsements because of his superstar status. He certainly makes sure that he and loved ones live the good life. When it comes to giving to others, though, he is certainly less than generous. Instead of cash bonuses for his staff, he gave them an assortment of products that he received for free from the companies he endorses. And his total contributions to charities this year? Less than he makes in 15 minutes. Bah, humbug.
Which celebrity fired her stylist after a screaming match? She was furious that all her money had failed to land her a place on even a second-tier Best Dressed List. She called the stylist and let loose a string of obscenities. The stylist then made a comment about how the clothes would have looked better if the client hadn’t gained a few pounds. The client then fired her on the spot.
Which under-30 celebrity with a squeaky-clean reputation is hiding some dark secrets? A former boyfriend is threatening to expose some unsavory details about her past, including a juvenile criminal act, short-term drug use, and some very personal photos that were taken from her laptop computer. The celebrity is completely stressed about the revelations hurting her career, and is huddling with lawyers and public relations specialists to figure out how much money it would take to pay off the offending ex.
Which politician will likely take their entire family down with them as a scandal unfolds? Once investigators start following the money trail, expect a whole closetful of drugs and alcohol and dirty money skeletons to come tumbling out in a disgraceful and ruinous heap. BTW, the politician is not a Governor.
Which celebrity’s love life is taking a very surprising twist? This famous actor dated at least one other celebrity before settling down with his beautiful wife. He comes across as a nice family guy, but the truth is that he is deeply unhappy about being tied down, and has indulged in various forms of negative behavior over the years, including multiple affairs. If he does divorce, he will gain his freedom, but his wife will certainly walk with the kids and a huge chunk of his money. The real shocker here is that an actress with whom our actor had an affair may not be the only one in the picture. The wife recently discovered that her husband has also been trading racy text messages with another celebrity. A very closeted male celebrity.
Which young actor is finding it hard to stay out of trouble? This celebrity is young, handsome, and parties too much. So far there’s been an incident with his car, an insurance fraud investigation, and an accusation of destruction of property at one of the hotels at which he has stayed. Most of these incidents have not made the headlines. California criminal defense lawyers must be lining up outside his door anticipating the lucrative stream of income this troublemaker will provide over the next few years. bg
This barely serviceable singer from a barely serviceable group does have B+ name recognition while the group itself has probably A+ name recognition. Anyway, our singer has been throwing quite a few tantrums lately including walking off stage well before the set is over. Mostly these are because of her drug habit. Coke and meth are her drugs of choice. The bigger problem is that our singer is convinced that her significant other who is many times richer will take care of her if she gets kicked out of the group. Maybe, but some of the other girls he has been cheating with may not agree with her viewpoint. cd
This A list comedian with A+ name recognition apparently can’t be bothered with parking meters or valets or parking garages. Instead he seems to get some kind of perverse thrill of accumulating as many parking tickets as he can. He always pays his tickets, but just hates looking around for a parking spot or finding change for meters. Thus he parks his car where he wants for as long as he wants. Total amount of money spent on parking tickets last year? About $40,000. That total includes his auto being towed on average of about once a month when he parked in a fire zone. It also averages out to about one parking ticket per day for an entire year.
