I Ain't One To Gossip But ...

Well, the looooooooong legal battle between Olivia de Havilland and Ryan Murphy that started last year when OdH went nuts over Catherine Zeta-Jones’ portrayal of her in Feud: Bette and Joan is finally over.

It all began when OdH thought that Murphy painted her to be some kind of gossipy, catty bitch—which she is/was when it came to her sister Joan Fontaine—and OdH didn’t like the look, so she sued. That case was thrown out of Los Angeles Superior Court and they sent it to the California Case of Appeals and they threw it out, and OdH then took it to the California Supreme Court and they threw it out and so OdH took it to the Supreme Court of the United States.

And … big surprise … SCOTUS has refused to review the case and gave no reason.

Um, because it was dumb, and a waste of time and they could think of a million other ways for 102-year-old OdH to spend her time?
Speaking of feuds … while we all know that lifestyle mavens Martha Stewart and Gwyneth Paltrow loathe each other, are they really that much different? Both blond; both wound far too tightly; both think their way is the best way. Both like to use steam …

We all know Paltrow is a proponent of using Vaginal Steaming to clean out your nether regions, fallopian tubes and eggs, if you got ‘em, while Martha likes to steam actual eggs using a cappuccino machine.

See, not so different at all.

Recently, Martha appeared in Food Network promo for a guest stint as a judge on Chopped and shared her method for making scrambled eggs using the steamer attachment on a cappuccino machine.

Cue Paltrow, who’s set to find a way to use a cappuccino machine to Steam the Hoo-Haw.
Just don’t hurt yourself when you fall off the counter.
Uh oh, maybe you should dump your Amazon stock since Amazon Gazillionaire Jeff Bezos is divorcing his wife of 25 years and she may end up with half of his $145 billion fortune and half his Amazon stock.

Jeff married MacKenzie in the 90s and she was right by his side as Amazon grew to the behemoth it is today and she was happy as a clam …until Jeff took a shine to one Lauren Sanchez, the couple’s neighbor.

I sure hope Lauren gets a prenup if she marries Bezos since after the divorce he might only be worth $70 billion.

PS Bezos clearly has a type because MacKenzie and Lauren could be sisters.
Apparently, on the heels of a couple of Golden Globes, someone, some people, in Hollywood don’t want to see Green Book take any Oscars. I mean, how else to explain the dragging those associated with the film are being taken on.

First up, apparently Green Book‘s producer-screenwriter Nick Vallelonga Tweeted his agreement with _____ about ______’s lie that he saw Muslims in New Jersey cheering the downing of the World Trade Center buildings.

Vallelonga deleted his Twitter account.

But now, someone has unearthed an old story about Green Book director Peter Farrelly which claimed he liked to expose himself. He ALLEGEDLY sexually harassed Cameron Diaz this way, and ALLEGEDLY did the same with other women and men. And I probably didn’t need the ALLEGEDLY because Farrelly is now apologizing for flashing his penis in an attempt to be “funny”:
“True. I was an idiot. I did this decades ago and I thought I was being funny and the truth is I’m embarrassed and it makes me cringe now. I’m deeply sorry.”
Lemme think on that because, if Farrelly was just some Joe on the street who flashed his goods, he’d have been arrested so, yeah, not a joke.

Still, I will give him props for not gifting us with a faux-pology, where he says, “Sorry, if you were offended.”

At least he isn’t Lady Gaga …
One would have thought, that as a survivor of sexual assault, Lady Gaga would distance herself from those people with an ALLEGED history of being a perv, but I guess Gaga only does it now because she’s thirsty for an Oscar nomination.

It all goes back to the song Gaga wrote and recorded with ALLEGED child-pornographer R. Kelly back in 2014 years after ALLEGATIONS surfaced about Kelly’s predatory predilections. I mean, even I’d heard the tales about Kelly, but Gaga never  said a word until now, as she turned down a request to be interviewed for that R. Kelly documentary, and now she’s all aghast.

And I call bull shiz. That R. Kelly story, and others, were around long before Gaga slipped into some meat and called herself a star, and now that more and more and sicker R. Kelly stories are coming to light, she’s jumping on the bandwagon to show her disgust.

And all because she wants a little gold statue. I guess losing the Globe to Glenn Close really shook Gaga and she scoured her past for some way to score points.

I ain’t buying it, Lady.

Martha Stewart actually has a good sense of humor, which means she is human. Unlike Paltrow. Stewart would eat that bitch up. And them use her $300 tee shirts as napkins to wipe her lips.

Blobby said...

Listen - if OdH makes Murphy spend his $$ on lawyers instead of making shit shows like 'Joan v Betty' I'd say Olivia's time was WELL spent.

I hope Mrs Bezos takes little Jeff to the cleaners

Saw A star is born remake 546 last week and my advice to you is....Don't. It was appallingly bad and I cannot understand why anyone would waste a minute on it. Only heard one word in ten that the alleged creepy hero said which made following the story a mite difficult. Save your money and buy a Judy or Barbra video of the same thing - worth far more of your attention and dosh

I'm no lifestyle maven, but I've found that using an adjustable showerhead with different settings can do wonders for cleaning the nether regions. It's less expensive and I would assume, from personal experience, so much more pleasurable. I got a steam burn on my right jahoobie from cooking beans. There is no way that stuff is coming near my hoo-haa!
Interesting (not in a good way) selection of alleged people you've got here, Bob.

I don’t like Stewart, but like Paltrow’s patronizing less. Gaga and R Kelly seemed like an odd pair to me, tbh.
Ohhh Bezos is gonna get a divorce? Popcorn, please.

krayolakris said...

I don’t understand why the Bezos fortune is always referred to as “his.” It’s Theirs! Isn’t it?

Leanna said...

I personally like Martha Stewart. Ever since she spent time in the big house with the common ladies she has changed. She seems to have a sense of humor instead of being all stuck up like Paltrow who seems to think she has to get the big bucks some way or other since she sure as hell can't act her way out of a paper bag.
ODH is probably broke and needs the money. So she has to find some reason to sue somebody. It didn't work. Poor ol' girl will find some other unsuspecting writer/director/producer to take to court when the moment strikes.
Poor Jeff. That's all I have to say about him.

the dogs' mother said...

I think I used to read Martha's magazine....

Alan Scott said...

What did OhD expect Ryan Murphy to do? Get another actress and re-film the entire series?

Jennifer said...

I definitely agree! Gwyneth has nothing on Martha; she really WOULD eat that skanky Paltrow alive! Since Martha became friends with Snoop I've liked her a whole lot more. As you say, she must have a great sense of humor and I love the oddness of their friendship!

@deedles - OMB, I use the showerhead THAT WAY too!

what a freakin' mess o freaks this week, bob.

Bob Slatten said...

@ krayolakris
You're so right about that!

Peter Maria said...

@mistress maddie, @Leanna, & @Jennifer: ikr? Martha has gotten a lot stiff since prison.

Was home with my mother watching AM TV at one point (it's what she likes, and I'm just there to enjoy time with her), and Rachel Ray has MS on. For some reason, I've never jumped on the RR wagon. Don't hate her, but don't see the point. RR has always talked about how she can't bake anything (and I do admit that baking is more chemistry & unforgiving than cooking), and MS just said, "That's ridiculous." I lost it LOL>

Peter Maria said...

* a lot LESS stiff

Peter Maria said...

I've wondered if the Bezozes have a prenup in place.

Dave R said...

Olivia knew she was never going to win that suit, but at 102 she's still smart enough to get people talking about her.

Jeff... what a $70 million hoot.

You're right about Gaga. My money says she goes home with the Best Song Oscar because Nicole Kidman is going to win for Destroyer.

If Martha Stewart offered me a drink or food, I would be excited to try it, if Gwyneth Paltrow offered me anything I would be afraid to even touch it.
