A whole bunch of employment lawyers might have heard that and started prepping for the wrongful dismissal suit of a lifetime. Meanwhile, any famous person whose marriage ever bit the dust over a nanny and a snake of a husband just nodded like, “Okay, tell me more.” But it’s not exactly like that, at least according to Amy Schumer herself. She didn’t just fire her doula simply because she was too busy hotting-it-up around Amy’s house to find the time to take care of Amy’s baby. No, it all comes down to self-esteem, which Amy says she didn’t have enough of to handle a pretty post-partum assistant.
Scott Speedman, the hunky Felicity Scott who didn’t marry Jennifer Garner, co-stars in David Cronenberg’s latest body-horror flick, Crimes of the Future. At last Thursday’s New York premiere, Page Six asked Scott how he manages to keep his youthful looks at age 46. He revealed that the key to his youthful good looks is… drinking the blood of WB has-beens. Matt from 7th Heaven, that one blonde jock from Popular, and both boys from Jack & Bobby. PSYCH. It’s actually water. Scott drinks a lot of water.
Cher may be 75-years-young, but, like my great-aunt Shirley, she will never, ever, ever let her hair go gray! The icon (Cher, not Shirley) is currently starring in a M.A.C. Cosmetics campaign with rapper Saweetie, 28, and she talked to People magazine about beauty and style. Cher says that going gray “is fine for other girls,” but she’s “just not doing it!” Um, this is in no way surprising. Cher will never let herself look her real age. It’s her (and her plastic surgeon’s) superpower.
Confession time. I’ve been watching Emily in Paris. I hate myself for it but I do it because the month of Jacembuary is dark and disorienting and EIP is bright and very easy to follow. It’s straight-up eye candy and one of the prettiest bonbons in the box is Chef Gabriele, Emily’s dumb, blandly hot love interest. Too bad it’s the kind you take one bite out of before discovering it’s filled with some weird nut paste you have to spit out into a napkin. Chef Gabriele is played by 33-year-old model turned model with dialogue Lucas Bravo. You’d think being cast as the romantic lead in a hit show would be a welcome development for an up-and-coming actor, but then again, you’re probably not French. But Lucas is and in a recent interview he said that becoming famous is literally “the worst thing that can happen to you,” and he should know because it happened to him. All because he was unlucky enough to be born beautiful. So please excuse his beauty, because it’s ruining his life. Somewhere in heaven, Stephanie Yellowhair is screaming LET THEM KNOW, mon frere, LET THEM KNOW!
It’s been about two years since we’ve posted anything about Jeff Lewis, 51, one of the former faces of Bravo’s Flipping Out, who seemed to spend more time having tantrums and flipping humans out of his life than homes. Don’t judge, because these things happen when no one takes the time to appreciate how very much like a busted-lipped and slightly less suave Ricardo Montalbán you actually look.
There’s a lot to choose from here, but I’m pretty sure Jeff’s classiest moment was when he insulted the jarringly hirsute (to him) cooch situation of the surrogate he and former life and work partner Gage Edward (aka “Barbie Bitch“) had hired to carry their daughter, Monroe Christine, now four. These days, when Jeff isn’t hosting glamorous (and maybe soon-to-be single?) guests like Tori Spelling on his XM Radio show, Jeff Lewis Live, he’s going under the scalpel to turn the tables and frighten some eyeballs as only he can. Last month, Jeff got plastic surgery on his eyelids and recently shared a picture of the finished result.
I don’t know why Alex Rodriguez always looks like an ovoid Pikachu getting pitched into the sun, but he and his signature camera squint are here to tell us about his new product line, and it’s poised to help erase the rivulets of tears he and his dining room chairs have been crying over his recent breakup with Jennifer Lopez. (JLo: “Speaking of grieving furniture, how about the tears our bed was crying when your free-agent peen was up to bat in other women’s infields?“)
Some think that A-Rod’s new manly makeup line is a diss against JLo’s beauty collection, but this was something planned while they were still together and pouncing on more power-couple business opportunities.
