Earlier this month, it was reported that two doctors from Grey’s Anatomy had been asked to turn in their pretend ID badges and leave Grey-Sloan Memorial. Jessica Capshaw (Dr. Arizona Robbins) and Sarah Drew (Dr. April Kepner) didn’t get their contracts renewed, and Deadline heavily implied it might have been because ABC was running low on money after giving $20 million to Ellen Pompeo. A very pissed Ellen shot back, saying there was absolutely no truth to it. Ellen appeared on Ellen today, and reiterated her raise isn’t the reason why Jessica and Sarah were let go.
Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper were on Watch What Happens Live yesterday to talk about their summer tour. Rod, who is three years older than Elton John, was asked how he felt about Elton’s announcement that he was officially retiring from touring. Rod says he sent Elton a sarcastic email asking: “What, again dear?“, which Elton reportedly didn’t respond to. Rod says he’s never talked about retiring, but that if he did, he certainly wouldn’t announce it like a certain bespectacled singer whose retirement motivations were solely for money-making purposes.
“If I do retire, I won’t make an announcement, I’ll just fade away. I don’t think this big deal – ‘Oh, I’m going to retire’ – it stinks of selling tickets…It’s dishonest, it’s not rock n’ roll.”
Elton might not have done it for the money, but he definitely isn’t walking away with nothing. I have a massive Elton John fan in my life, and I tried to get tickets to his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. Not only did it sell out in 0.000005 seconds, but resale tickets were starting at $1500. I don’t have that kind of money, so the closest we’ll be getting to Elton is me sticking a raisin between my front teeth to lip sync to Rocket Man.
Rod can’t compare himself to Elton. Elton wants to retire from touring, and Rod can’t until he’s completed his life’s only mission: to tour the world asking every horny, screaming middle-aged woman if they think he’s sexy. Eventually there won’t be a single woman left. Then, and only then, can he fade away.

They must have been regular ol’ russets and not Japanese potatoes, because only Kevin Smith’s body looks different.
Last month, 47-year-old Kevin Smith suffered a massive heart attack due to a 100% blockage of his LAD artery (nicknamed The Widow-Maker). For a while, Kevin was known as a jorts-wearing, hockey jersey-wrapped human roly-poly who had trouble squeezing into airplane seats. But over the past couple of years, he tried to eat better, and soon enough he became a jorts-wearing, jersey-wrapped person with 85 fewer pounds on him. Despite losing so much weight, he still had heart problems, and thus ended up in the hospital. Kevin spoke about his post-heart attack diet on a recent episode of his podcast, Hollywood Babble-On (via Page Six), and he’s taking it really seriously.
If Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are on a bit of a break like they’re rumored to be, then it would appear he’s a regular Ross Geller, because he’s repeatedly been seen with a girl who isn’t Selena.
Baby shower drama isn’t exactly rare (anyone with “that aunt” knows this), but some kind of messiness expected to go down at Ray J’s baby shower. And I’m not talking about an accidental puddle that happened after an excited Ray J heard the word “shower.” I mean family drama between his sister Brandy and their mama Sonja Norwood, and his pregnant wife Princess Love. According to TMZ, things are so rough between Princess, Brandy, and Sonja, that Brandy and Sonja skipped the baby shower.
If this story needed a soundtrack, it might be Everytime by Britney Spears played on repeat. Because every time Kevin Federline tries to get some more money, he gets a dial tone, or in this most recent instance, a helpful list of how he can get the most bang for his monthly child support bucks.
