After reality television, bouts with Rosie O’Donnell, Barbara Walters, and Khloe Kardashian have all failed to keep Donald Trump news worthy, he has found his next publicity stunt victim: ESPN. Why? Because Trump and his team, the New Jersey Generals, were sick of the “minor leagues” of football (the USFL) and wanted to be admitted into the majors (the NFL).
Trump is interviewed in the most recent documentary by ESPN and Mike Tollin, and was quoted as calling the USFL “small potatoes.”
NFL star, Tom Brady, and supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen are being sued by photographers after the claim that the couple’s bodyguards shot at them during their April wedding reception in Costa Rica. My question is, why bring it up now?
News agency, Agence France Presse and two photographers are seeking $1 million in damages after they claim, that “Brady and Bundchen negligently hired and trained the security team, and that they permitted the hired muscle to ‘discharge firearms with intent to kill or wound,’” reports NBC Sports. OK Magazine reports one of the photogs claims he “managed to run off and escape,” while the other claims he was “grabbed by the bodyguard, his arm twisted behind him and immobilized.”
“The wedding planner, photographer, groomsmen, and bridesmaids have all been chosen,” tells a close friend of couple Khloe Kardashian and LA Laker stud, Lamar Odom to Starpulse.com. “It’s chaos at the Kardashian household!” After only six weeks, the couple is set to wed this Sunday at music mogul and friend, Irving Azoff’s house in Bel-Aire.
David Hasselhoff was taken to the hospital in an ambulance on Sunday night after being found drunk by his 17 year old daughter, Hayley. Again. This is the second time since May that Hayley has had to send her father to the hospital for his alcoholism. According to RadarOnline.com, Hayley was at home with her father after he finished a taping for America’s Got Talent and began binging on vodka. Although rumors indicate that Hasselhoff was rushed to the hospital for alcohol poisoning, his reps insist that he was sick due to a bad prescription drug combination. TMZ.com reports that the Hoff is blaming it all on an ear infection. Hasselhoff insists that the Antivert he was taking to treat his ear infection had a bad reaction with the Antabuse that he takes to treat his alcoholism, causing his equilibrium to go haywire.
No one is saying that sobriety is a day at the beach, but it’s pretty clear that Hasselhoff needs serious help immediately.
What would you think if we told you Lady Gaga’s alma mater was an all girl’s school in New York City? Pretty unbelievable, right? The Covenant of Sacred Heart, located on East 91st Street is where Gaga told Entertainment Daily, “I got a really solid education, in particular how to analyze art, how to make art. But it’s interesting because I think everyone assumes that because I went to such a religious school perhaps they don’t appreciate what I’m doing now.” Well Lady, your nuns were not impressed after being showed a video of you staging death.
Abercrombie & Fitch wasted no time Monday suing Beyonce Knowles upon her announcement to launch a perfume under her alter-ego, Sasha Fierce. Within hours, she was staring at a lawsuit of trademark infringement, deceptive trade practices, and unfair competition. Beyonce did not back down from Abercrombie’s cease and desist letter after she filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in September 2008.
In an off the record portion of a recent CNBC interview, the President was caught on tape calling Kanye a jackass for his recent behavior at the VMAs. Obama sites that Taylor Swift is a nice young girl who deserves the award she got; and Kanye, who does he think he is? Here is the (off-record) transcript of the interaction with ABC News reporter Terry Moran. Moran apparently tweeted about the incident almost immediately, but deleted it shortly after.
Q: Were your girls as hacked off as mine were that Kanye gave Taylor Swift the Joe Wilson treatment?
Patrick Swayze, 57, died yesterday in Los Angeles after a two-year long battle with pancreatic cancer. With tributes and tweeting, Hollywood and fans show their love and respect to the dirty dancer we all know and love. In an interview with Barbara Walters, Swayze says, “I’ve never been one to run from a challenge.”
Swayze was born in Houston, Texas in 1952 and by his 30s, was a household name thanks to his vivacious hip-swings and thrusts, which made him famous in the 1987 hit Dirty Dancing. Another box-office hit came in the 90s when he co-starred alongside Demi Moore in Ghost. Who didn’t get choked up when they shared one simple word, “Ditto?”
