I never saw this coming, though, well, I’m not really
surprised; he’s a three-time loser in the marriage game now. Three strikes and
you’re out, or maybe three strikes and you can come out?
I thought the Republican National Convention—with the Ron
Paulettes and the Not-Romney’s going up against the GOP machine—was going to be
the biggest, hottest mess of the year. Not so. That title goes to the
Yup. Apparently Katie has snapped out of her
Scientology-stupor and has filed for divorce from Tommy Grrrrl. And it is not
going to be a pleasant split.
See, according to a statement from Tommy’s handlers, he was
“blindsided” by the announcement….in much the same way that Nicole Kidman was
blindsided when Tommy filed for divorce from her.
Payback is a bitch, and it’s ALLEGEDLY Katie
Holmes. Who ALLEGEDLY didn't sign the standard Promise To Stay Married To Tommy Grrrl For Ten Years like Wife ! and Wife 2.
Katie, I guess she won’t be answering to Kate anymore, filed
for divorce yesterday, citing that old Hollywood standby, “irreconcilable
differences.” But the ugly comes in because she has also asked for sole legal
custody and “primary residential custody” of little Suri.
In other words: Tommy will be a weekend Dad, at best. See,
Katie saw what happened when Tommy dropped Nicole, with their children, and she
is not about to let him do the same to their daughter.
And fun, you know, for me!
Ever since the Today Show ratings took a hit
earlier this year—after being on top for about a hundred years—reports have
surfaced that Lauer wanted new co-host Ann Curry gone.
You know, because it’s all her fault.
And now comes the sweepstakes over who takes
Curry’s spot. One story I heard is that Hoda Kotb, who co-hosts The Today
Show’s 5th or
Kathie Lee Drunkard—would be stepping in; and that would make room for a new
co-host for Kathie Lee, in one Regis Philbin.
Well, that’s interesting. Of course, other
names crept in, too, like Savannah Guthrie, or maybe me! But one name that
isn’t being tossed into the hat is that of Matt Lauer’s ALLEGED former
mistress, Natalie Morales.
Yup. The same Natalie who may have schtupped
her some Lauer. And the same Natalie who ALLEGEDLY has a young child who looks a little
Yeah, that Natalie
Morales. But it seems that, as much as Lauer likes Natalie, he wasn’t keen on
having her sit by his side…at least on TV.
And maybe that bit of news will see Natalie
Morales leave The Today Show and NBC as well.
A source—and I’m betting on Ann Curry—says:
“If Natalie’s passed over for the job, she’s going to leave next.”
See, Natty has been with Today since 2006
and was thought to be Meredith Vieira’s replacement when she left last year,
but Curry snagged the job. And Natty has never been happy about that, you know.
The source—bye Ann—says: “This will be the
second time [Natalie] has been passed over for the top job. And she’s not
Hmmm, since Matty just scored a new contract
worth some $25 million a year, maybe Natty could go the paternity suit route
and sue him for some coins?
Just a thought.
|Yeah...he's really gonna miss her|
|Matty & Natty|
Now, while we’re still on The Today Show
kerfuffle, let’s talk about who might be truly responsible for keeping Natalie
Morales away from Matt Lauer and his lap.
Rumor has it that it’s none other than
Matty’s second wife, Annette Roque, who has already tried to leave Lauer once before,
going so far as to file for divorce before ultimately deciding that Matty was
her Goose that Laid the Golden Contract.
And, maybe, well, Annette got wind that NBC
was dumping Curry and that Natalie Morales might be getting that job and she
hightailed her Louboutins over to Lauer’s office and laid down the law:
|Matty & The Missus|
It seems that if Natalie is even being considered for the job, Annette is
threatening to divorce Matty.
It’s gonna get ugly.
If Natty doesn’t get the gig, she’s out.
If Natalie gets the gig, Mrs. Lauer is out.
And if Annette leaves, well a huge chunk of
Matty’s millions goes with her, and you know he won’t let that happen; hair
plugs are expensive.
So, my guess is that Natalie and Ann might
be cleaning pout their desks at the same time, and Annette Roque will be
getting a lot of new shoes.
The tabloids are throwing a lot of different
stuff at Johnny Depp about why he left his not-wife after fourteen years and a
couple of kids.
But it doesn’t seem to be affair-fueled
gossip; no, it just seems that Johnny was, well, bored.
A source—and it may be one of the two women
rumored to be dating Johnny now….bisexual Amber Heard o dumped her girlfriend
for Depp, or his publicist Robin Baum—who claim, “Johnny was
bored senseless and he wanted out of the relationship for a really long time.”
But rumors are that Johnny, who was seen
last year exciting the home of one of those Olsen troll dolls wearing the same
clothes he was wearing the night before—Walk of Shame—is seeing multiple women
The girl behind the counter at Starbucks.
My next door neighbor...I mean a creepy looking guy has been sniffing around over there for a few weeks now.
Well, I guess if you’ve got two or three or
seven girlfriends that whole notion of being bored is just flies out the window.
Oh Madonna. A nipple to stay in the news, followed by a
moon shot for publicity. Then the leaking of your tour rider to show how crazy
you really are, and to keep your face, or ass, on the front page. Whatever will you do next? I mean, other
than losing the British accent and recording some decent music?
Well, it seems that Madge has revealed that
she has a team of cleaners come in after she leaves her hotel room, her
backstage areas, her bathroom, her limo, her toilet, her bidet, so that her DNA
can be completely scrubbed from every surface.
Yup. MDNA don’t leave no DNA. In true diva style AKA a desperate need for
publicity, Madge has set up a “sterilization team” to wipe away any DNA—hair,
skin, saliva--that may have been dropped in her rooms after she leaves.
In fact, obsessive compulsive Madge orders
that only she and her entourage are allowed backstage passes. In fact, concert
promoter Álvaro Ramos, overseeing the Portuguese leg of the spectacle, says:
“We have to take extreme care, like I have never seen for any other artist. We
cannot even look at the dressing room, after it is ready, or even open the
door. We can only enter after her sterilization team has left the room. There
will not be any of Madonna’s DNA, any hair, or anything. They will clean up everything.
In the end it is all to protect her and make her feel comfortable. I do
understand it, but it is taken to extremes.”
Protect her? I wonder if it isn’t being done to protect
those who use the spaces after Madge.
God only knows where she’s been.
So, Johnny “Bathing Suit Area” Travolta has
been keeping a low profile since the dozens and dozens of men have come forward
to say that he sexually harassed, groped, or propositioned them at spas all
over the world.
But even Travolta has to come out of hiding
at some point, eh? And what will he do when he does that? How will he act? What
might he say and do?
Well, Johnny and his Scientology-bot wife,
Kelly Preston, who knows which side of the bank account to be on, were at the Savages premiere in LA last week and they were
giving all sorts of PDA.
You know, cuz people think Travolta’s a big
old nympho-mo so he and the missus have to “act” like a loving couple.
Let’s just dissect the shots:
|Her lips say "Happy" while her eyes say "Ick."|
|Smile baby. |
And act like you lime it and aren't thinking
about that bottle of Purell in your purse.
|Careful Kelly! Your hand is dangerously close |
to Johnny's Bathing Suit Area,
AKA The Forbidden Zone
|Notice how Kelly is looking at the camera |
to make sure they get this "candid" shot?
Of course, the story is that they arrived
separately, worked the carpet and their tongues, together, and then left
Yeah, I ain’t fooled.
What does a freak do when he gets fired from
one TV show for being an alcoholic, drug-taking, prostitution-buying,
knife-wielding, spousal batterer and then gets a new show and needs some press?
Well, if you’re Charlie Sheen, you head back
to New York—which was the beginning of his very public meltdown last year—to do
a round of press for your new show, the high-lariously entitled Anger Management and you trash your hotel room.
And, as a result, Sheen has ALLEGEDLY been banned from all Ritz Hotel properties,
and I’m thinking he’s also been banned from ever eating a Ritz Cracker or even
singing Putting On The Ritz.
Maybe they can start calling his TV show The
Ritz and he can get banned from there as well?
No Lohan news this week.
I guess she was able to score the good stuff
and holed up in a hotel somewhere.
Maybe next week……?
