Khloe Kardashian Reminded Everyone That She Was Nicole Richie’s Assistant Way Back In The Mid-2000s
Ahhh, Old Hollywood. The scandals, the style, the starlets! I am, of course, talking about the mid-aughts, a very, very good time for show business – both of Britney’s marriages, the end of the original Bennifer, the rise of TomKat, Ashlee Simpson’s lip-sync jig on SNL, everything Lindsay Lohan, and the continued reign of Paris Hilton (ft. Nicole Richie). Little did we know what was stirring in the deepest, darkest recesses of Calabasas. A powerful, starving force had awakened, attracted by the bright lights of the paparazzi and the tacky fashions of the red carpet. “Me, me, meeee,” the beast growled, “Why not meeee?” Then, in 2007, the beast emerged; Kim Kardashian’s sex tape was released, and Keeping Up with the Kardashians promptly hit the airwaves.
Legend has it that it was Paris herself who helped crown her successor; she hired a then-unknown Kim to organize her closet. And now Kim’s sister, Khloe Kardashian, has let everyone know again that she briefly worked as Nicole Richie’s assistant. Sigh. The takeover was inevitable.
Dakota Johnson Says Her Grandmother Tippi Hedren Still Has 13 Or 14 Big Cats
Big cats in America. So hot right now, thanks to Tiger King. But Joe Exotic and creepy cult leader Doc Antle (seriously, can someone at least attempt to deprogram his fake-titted wives?!) were far from the first people to surround themselves with exotic puss. Legendary actress Tippi Hedren, mother of Melanie Griffith, and grandmother to Dakota Johnson, was doing it fifty years ago.
At one time, Tippi, now 90 years old, rescued and owned around sixty lions and tigers. Obviously this is far more interesting than my own grandmother’s collection of chicken knick-knacks, so, while remotely interviewing Dakota, Graham Norton took the opportunity to ask if Tippi still owned any big cats. Dakota confirmed that, yes, her grandmother still has around 13 or 14. Continue reading
Pedro Almodóvar Says That Madonna Treated Him And Antonio Banderas Like “Simpletons” Back In The Day
Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar has been writing essays during his coronavirus isolation. They document “his experiences and the memories that have come up as a result”, which I believe translates to, “here’s some old-ass tea for you”. I looove vintage gossip. The statute of limitations is up, which means we get the true dirt in all its unedited glory! Thank you, Pedro.
In his latest essay, Pedro tells the story of the night he threw a big flamenco party for Madonna when she was in Madrid for her Blond Ambition tour. If you’ve seen Truth or Dare, you already know that Pedro invited all sorts of Spanish celebrities, but Madge was only interested in meeting Pedro’s frequent leading man, Antonio Banderas, because she wanted to bang him (fair). What Pedro didn’t tell Madonna was that Antonio was bringing his then-wife, Ana Leza. Continue reading
Jacki Weaver Is Sorry For What She Said About Angelica Huston
The old lady bitch fight between Anjelica Huston and Jacki Weaver has sadly come to end, as 72-year-old Jacki is apologizing for telling 67-year-old Angelica to “she can go fuck herself,” and adding, “I would say she must be going through menopause, but she must have had that ages ago.” Jacki went after Angelica for trashing the movie Poms, which Jacki stars in with Diane Keaton, Pam Grier, and Rhea Perlman. But bad news for anyone who wanted to see Jacki and Angelica go at it in a Metamucil-covered wrestling match, that’s not going to happen.
Completely True News: James Dean Was Allegedly Marlon Brando’s S&M Sex Slave
Just when I was starting to think that today’s “news” day was as slow as Channing Tatum’s thought process when someone asks him what 3 ÷ 3 is, a BREAKING and totally real story from the 1950s popped up. This story about James Dean supposedly being Marlon Brando’s bottom boy sex slave comes from an unauthorized biography and excerpts were posted by The Daily Mail. So it’s practically as if Honest Abe told the story to Gandhi who told it to us. It’s that believable, it’s trustworthy and it’s fifty shades of YES.
