The embarrassing fight between Dean McDermott and his ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace over his unpaid child support is finally over. It didn’t end with Dean leaving a goodbye note to Tori Spelling on the kitchen counter (“Adios, mamacita!“) and running away to Tijuana to live as long as possible under an assumed name (El Ojos de Possum). E! News says that The Deaner has actually agreed to fork over the money he owes to Mary Jo.
Mary Jo agreed to withdraw her lawsuit against Dean earlier this month after he allegedly cried poor in court, claiming he had fallen on “hard times.” She won’t be re-filing any time soon. A source tells E! that Dean and Mary Jo recently came to an agreement outside of court. Dean reportedly owed Mary Jo $100,800 in unpaid child support, interest, and attorney’s fees, and he has agreed to pay her in installments until his debt is cleared. Dean cut Mary Jo a check for $6000 last Monday, and will send her another $2500 by the end of the month.
E! News says that Dean has until July 1, 2020 to pay it off. Sure, I totally see that happening. If Mary Jo wants to actually get paid, she’s got to threaten him with a penalty for missed payment. Like making sure every tattoo shop is mysteriously too busy to hook him up with any more dirt bag ink. You’ve got to hit him where it hurts. And we all know that’s not his bank account, since that lost feeling ages ago.
One of the internet’s favorite moments of this year’s Oscars came immediately after PricewaterhouseCooper’s Best Picture fuck up. When La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz triggered the world’s largest collective gasp by calling Moonlight as Best Picture, a serious-looking Ryan Gosling suddenly started giggling. It was like watching a stoned teenager react to an adult saying the words “joint checking account.” It made no sense, but it was fully enjoyable to watch.
People says that Ryan explained that moment during an appearance at the Adobe Summit in Las Vegas yesterday. Apparently Ryan started laughing because he was just so happy no one was leaving the stage on a stretcher.
“What really was happening as I was watching, it was surreal anyway, I was watching people start to have this panicked reaction in the crowd and guys were coming on with headsets and I felt like someone had been hurt. I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst-case scenario playing out in my head. And then I just heard Moonlight won and I was so relieved that I started laughing.”
Ryan adds he was “thrilled” with the results, because he knows Moonlight’s director Barry Jenkins and loved the movie.
Really though, I’m surprised by Ryan. If he thought something was wrong, why didn’t he spring into action? I think we can all agree the worst-case situation would have been an on-stage heart attack. And that’s no problem for Ryan Gosling. All he has to do is approach the body and whisper “Hey girl or guy“, and the victim’s heart will immediately start beating again. Ryan Gosling is nature’s defibrillator.
Katy Perry said goodbye to John Mayer more than a year ago. Since then, John has been rumored to have tried to get with Demi Lovato, but nothing serious. Last month John Mayer released a song called Still Feel Like Your Man. As you can hear below, it sounds like the biggest hit from a royalty-free Maroon 5 knock-off called Burgundy 6. But that’s not what we’re focusing on here.
Sorry, singles looking to mingle with Brad Pitt, but it looks like he’s not quite ready to jump back into the dating pool just yet. “Thanks for the heads up!” said the lifeguard of the dating pool who will be assigned to cleaning the filter of self-tanner grease and beard hairs after Brad jumps in.
A source blabbed to People about Brad’s current life as a single guy. We already know that Brad is doing the sad artist thing right now. But don’t expect to see him cruising singles bars in a paint-splattered smock looking for his “muse.” The source says that Brad isn’t dating right now. Instead, he’s been doing the buddy thing. Brad has been having friends over a lot, and has been reconnecting with old friends. Oh boy, here come eleven hundred more “BRAD RECONNECTS WITH JEN!” headlines. The source adds that Brad seems “much happier” lately (well, agreeing with Angelina Jolie to stop fighting like Rikki-Tikki-Tavi and Nagaina will do that to you).
The source adds that along with art and spending more time with his kids, Brad is also working out every day and has lost a few pounds. Nice.
The sad news in all of this is that I guess this means Kate Hudson really isn’t dating Brad Pitt after all. Poor Kate Hudson. Even though she technically has a new man in her life, I’m sure she would have loved to have stretched that rumor out just a little longer. If you only get one measly totally untrue tabloid cover out of it, did it even not really ever happen?
Eight months ago we found out that Jay Mohr filed for divorce from Nikki Cox. A few weeks later he changed his mind. Then last December, he filed divorce paper to quit Nikki Cox a second time. This second divorce filing appears to be the one that’s sticking. And just like his attempts at filing for divorce, their custody battle is also turning into a bit of a shit show.
Despite it looking like the cover shot of a Nicholas Sparks novel called Daddy Issues, that picture above is actually of Ashley Olsen and her most recent boyfriend on vacation in St. Barts in January. Sadly, there will be no more Caribbean beach PDA for them.
UsWeekly says that after five months of dating, 30-year-old Ashley and 50-something financier Richard Sachs are over. A source tells UsWeekly it ended because she wanted to focus on her clothing line.
The source adds that they’re still friends and “hang out.” For people like you and me, “still hanging out” can mean sending a text at 1am for a half-hearted hook-up. But Ashley and Richard are super rich. So I choose to assume that “still hanging out” means they get together every Tuesday (the gentleman’s Friday) and dare each other to drink unfiltered tap water or ride the subway – no silk gloves! – with the general public.
If life were like a Hallmark movie, this would be the part where a meddling Mary-Kate Olsen takes Ashley aside after throwing a pot roast into the over for dinner, and urges her not to be so career-driven. (Takes long drag off cigarette) “You poor dear. Do you need me to set you up? I hear Jennifer’s grandfather is single!”
