One Direction is Over and Out…
Khloe’s sister Kendall continues to combat lesbian rumors by being photographed with Harry Styles. The relationship is probably good for his image now that he and his bandmates have confirmed that the band’s hiatus is indeed a breakup for good. The boys, who were thrown together by Simon Cowell after appearing on a reality show, are exhausted and ready for solo careers. Styles apparently has also set his sights on an acting career. He can try to be an actor, but the number of people who have successfully converted from music to acting is pretty small. Even Justin Timberlake, who has billions of fans and a good reputation in the comedy world, has seen his acting career stall. We predict One Direction will reunite in around five years, after none of them find good commercial success on their own. But by then, the world will have moved on to a new boy band obsession. A new one pops up every day, you know.
Gervais in Hot Water, But He Doesn’t Care
The same people who tuned into the Golden Globes with full awareness that Ricky Gervais was the host are now complaining about Gervais telling jokes they deem offensive. However, this is Ricky Gervais, the same guy who was hired specifically for his tendency to be offensive. The comedian is in hot water for making jokes about Caitlyn Jenner, which some feel is transphobic. His first joke of the night referenced Jenner’s 2015 car crash, which ended with a woman being killed. “I’m going to be nice tonight. I’ve changed. Not as much as Bruce Jenner, obviously … now Caitlyn Jenner. What a year she’s had. She became a role model for trans people everywhere, showing great bravery in breaking down barriers and destroying stereotypes. She didn’t do a lot for women drivers, but you can’t have everything, can you?” Gervais is not backing down from his remarks, despite many people attacking him on Twitter. “Suggesting a joke about Caitlin Jenner [sic] is automatically transphobic is like suggesting a joke about Bill Cosby is automatically racist. You have every right to be offended. Just don’t cry when no one cares.”
Khloe Kardashian’s Plane Scare
Khloe Kardashian was in a scary situation earlier this week when the flight she was taking to New York made an emergency landing in Las Vegas. The cockpit filled with a slight burning smell due to an electrical problem. Kardashian eventually made it to New York at 4:45 am, in time for an appearance on Good Morning America. The trip is part of Kardashian’s publicity push for Kocktails with Khloe, the FYI network show that execs are worried is going to bomb. Khloe’s interview was all about Lamar (she says he’s doing well), Saint West (she says he’s cute) and that Rob Kardashian is doing fine after his diabetes diagnosis (we’re sure he’s not in favor of his health being a topic of conversation). Overall Khloe’s interview seems to confirm the problems FYI is worried about with her show – Khloe’s celebrity circle revolves around her family and their appearances on her show will not be breaking any news.
Lamar Odom is Out of the Hospital, But His Marriage is on Life Support…
Meanwhile, multiple news outlets are talking about what’s going on with Lamar Odom. He has been released from the hospital and will be living at a rehab facility for the foreseeable future. Khloe didn’t really answer when she was asked about their future together, noting her lack of a crystal ball. She also described him as her soulmate, but as more of a “friend” type of soulmate. A cynic would note that with Odom probably suffering brain damage, Khloe is sticking by boyfriend James Harden’s side.
Khloe’s friends and Lamar’s friends continue to give competing stories to the tabloids about what’s really going on. Her friends are giving anonymous interviews claiming Lamar is already seeking to reconnect with his drug dealers. She fears that once Lamar is allowed to leave the rehab facility for a few hours each day that he will not be strong enough to resist the temptations. Although her friends say she will never get back together with her husband, Lamar’s friends say he believes that Khloe and Harden will definitely break up.
Madonna and Sean Penn Want You To Care
You heard it here first! Last month we predicted that Sean Penn and Madonna were going to get back together, after Penn turned up at several Madonna concerts on the West Coast. Then she filed an affidavit in support of his defamation lawsuit against Lee Daniels, who had said Penn abused women. Now Penn finds himself back in the spotlight due to his interview with El Chapo, the most wanted drug dealer who was finally captured in Mexico. Penn interviewed the drug kingpin for Rolling Stone, and that led to El Chapo’s capture. The 10,000 word interview is filled with grammatical errors, spelling mistakes and horrifying details like that time that Penn pulled out his penis and peed on a tree. Which happened, he said, to earn El Chapo’s respect…Okay?
We are not nearly as obsessed with murdering thug El Chapo as the rest of the world, but we are curious about the status of Madonna’s relationship with Penn! The two were inseparable at his annual Golden Globs party, which doubles as a fundraiser for Haiti. Now sources say it was Penn who convinced her to head to court to force son Rocco to return to the U.S. Rocco has still not returned to America, but apparently Penn convinced Madonna that it is okay to air her dirty laundry. Unfortunately for her, Rocco has made it clear he wants to live with his dad. Sources say Penn has been her “rock” during the ordeal. During a performance at the fundraiser, Madonna paused to say she has always loved Penn since the moment she laid eyes on him. Uh-huh. That and their public displays of affection actually make me think that the two are faking it because they are famewhores. Neither of the controlling, privacy-obsessed celebs would be airing out the personal details like this if it was True Love. Instead, it’s highly likely they are playing it up as a ballsy PR move to distract people from wondering if she’s a bad mom and he should be in jail.
