Eonline reports that “Two of Slumdog Millionaire's child actors are, quite literally, slumming it no more, with the Indian government rewarding the poverty-stricken toasts of Hollywood with new homes for their families outside of the Mumbai slums.”
Amarjeet Singh Manhas, the chairman of the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority, said that Rubina Ali and Azharuddin Ismail, who played the youngest versions of Dev Patel and Freida Pinto's characters in the film, "are special and have won laurels for the country and we want to felicitate them."
With this just-in update - my jaw is getting might comfortable on the floor. In breaking news, the adult entertainment company Vivid Entertainment has offered Nadya Suleman, 1 million dollars to star in her own pornographic film. Yep. Not kidding.
To top it off, they have also offered her and family full medical and dental insurance if she becomes a "contract girl" and makes a series of flicks with the company. I officially believe that this is one of the harbingers of the apocalypse.
So yay, she can be rewarded for her gross stupidity…after she decides that taxpayers' money is not enough for her.
We are all familiar with Nadya “Octo-mom” Suleman. If not, allow me to offer a quick recap.
An incredibly financially instable woman went baby crazy. Instead of just running through her local hospital’s nursery wing and snatching up unsuspecting newborns like a regular psycho, she decided to have medically induced octuplets instead. Oh, did I mention that she already had six children, has no significant other, nor a job, and lives in her mother’s soon to be foreclosed home? And she was warned by her doctors about the medical risks of having so many children at once? Children which are now under intensive care after being born prematurely? So she has no way of supporting herself, or her 13 children, and expects my hard earned tax dollars to keep Darwinism from ending her reproductive tirade.
Looks like our little J is growing up! Last year, “Gossip Girl” star Taylor Momsen announced her dreams of one day leading a rock band (and not the video game). Well she’s done it, the tiny starlet told Teen Vogue that her new band, The Reckless will begin touring in April. But don’t let all the pop tarts out there fool you, Momsen said, “I do write [all the songs] 100% myself. I'm the lead singer and I play guitar and I totally oversee it.” She seems completely excited over the prospect of being up on stage, but promised not to let it get in the way of her “Gossip Girl” commitments. She said, “I definitely want to continue doing what I love.” in reference to the teen drama. Drama might come to the set as costar Leighton Meester is working on an album as well. We can’t wait!
Thankfully, the days when rappers settled their industry disputes with guns are for the most part gone. For years, they were replaced by the less destructive and more entertaining diss track. Than, the game changed again in this year’s premier feud between 50 Cent and Rick Ross, which has been waged primarily through comedic vignettes, viral videos, lewd cartoons, and website hacking. That blueprint is still in its infancy but now, Queens-based rapper NORE, formerly known as Noreaga, looks like he’s trying to shake up that short lived formula again, by trying to make Twitter into the apparatus du jour for escalating disputes and delivering disses. And he’s not even feuding with another rapper…
Newly minted superstar Robert Pattinson was quite the nervous Nellie when called upon to present at the Oscars on Sunday. But one Hollywood starlet made sure she was around to help Pattinson relax after the big event. “Star Wars” maven Natalie Portman made sure to give the new star a warm welcome to Hollywood. One of Pattinson’s close friends told E!Online, “She seemed really into him, and went right up to say hello once she spotted him” at the “Vanity Fair” Oscar Party.
For those of you who watched (at least the first season) of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, there’s about to be a whole new reason to tune in again for those of us who fell off the reality show wagon. According to the Daily News, VH1 execs are so pleased with the success of “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Pinsky” that they plan to launch a reality show about sex addiction. Dr. Drew Pinsky rose to fame on the airwaves as the host of Loveline, a call-in show offering medical and relationship advice to listeners, which he leads to this day.
Why are gossip columnists still talking about their relationship? Shouldn’t we just assume that it’s over? However, the hollywoodgossip has run a post today discussing how Rihanna’s family hopes that she won’t go back to him. But as far as her father, Ronald Fenty, is concerned, his daughter should "move on." A relative agrees: "I don't want her to go back to him. I don't think anyone does."
Oh, that’s right, Rihanna’s real last name is “Foregone-Conclusion.” I guess it’s a slow day in the gossip world. But seriously, how dumb is this whole situation? Have these stars considered their job as role models for kids and teens? Relationships can’t stay very personal when you’re famous and abusive. And it’s little doe-eyed Rihanna. Really?
Rumors floating around the interweb have spoken of a strange religious issue in the future for the grossly hypothetical marriage of Leonardo DiCaprio to Bar Rafaeli. According to a friend of Rafaeli’s father, boxing promoter Aaron Braunstein, daughter Bar is going to marry a Jew no matter what. "He told me that if Leo doesn't convert to Judaism, there will be no marriage.”
This would pose a problem for Leonardo, who’s not of the Chosen People. But who said he was going to marry her? I mean, he probably knows she’s not gonna be a model forever.
