Lamar Odom Left Rehab After One Day, Developed $800-A-Day Drug Habit

Published June 14, 2014 by gossipzoo

Lamar Odom

Earlier this week, Lamar Odom checked into a drug rehab facility and then checked out the next day, according to People.com.

In an attempt to get clean, the NBA star entered a drug and alcohol treatment center on Wednesday morning, but sources say Odom, 32, left the medical facility on Thursday afternoon. He was later spotted out and about in Los Angeles.

The athlete went to rehab just five days after he was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI).

Odom has been making headlines for his alleged addiction to crack and crumbling marriage to Khloe Kardashian. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star reportedly staged an intervention for her husband to seek help, but he purportedly moved out of their home and into a hotel.

TMZ.com reports that over the summer Odom was spending an average of $800 per day on several drugs, including crack. Insiders say he spent so much money because he shared his stash, and dealers often charge wealthy users higher prices.

Kardashian hasn’t commented on her husband’s problems but posted last weekend: “As much as I wish I were made of steel… I’m not. I’m pretty damn close to it though hehe.”

Alec Baldwin To Host New Current Events Talk Show

Published June 14, 2014 by gossipzoo

Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin has landed his own talk show.

The former 30 Rock star will host “Up Late with Alec Baldwin” at 10pm on Friday nights on MSNBC beginning next month, where he’ll discuss current affairs with celebrity guests.

“I’ve developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented and engaging people in every imaginable field,” the actor said. “I’m grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television.”

Baldwin, a Hollywood liberal, will find his show up against fellow left-wing celebrity talk show host Bill Maher, whose HBO show “Real Time With Bill Maher” airs its new episodes in the same Friday night time slot.

Baldwin recently reactivated his Twitter page after quitting the social media site following an altercation with a reporter from London’s Daily Mail who claimed his wife was tweeting during actor James Gandolfini’s funeral.

Baldwin said he’d “never” rejoin the site during an interview with Vanity Fair magazine in July.

“Never,” he said when asked about opening his account again. “No. I went to Jimmy Gandolfini’s funeral, and when I was there I realized Jimmy Gandolfini didn’t have Twitter. Jimmy Gandolfini was so beloved as a person, and he was so admired as an actor, and he didn’t give a f*** about social media.

I really learned a lesson at the funeral, he adds. “I said to myself, This is all a waste of time. Meaning it’s fun sometimes, but less and less, and less. It’s just another chink in your armor for people to come and kill you. I stopped and said to myself, I’m going to try where I just don’t do this anymore.”

The actor had a change of heart earlier this week, and used the death of comic Sarah Silverman’s dog as his opportunity to get back online, perhaps with the bigger intentions of using it to promote his new show once it begins.

After all, it will need some help — MSNBC currently ranks third among the U.S. news networks, trailing closely behind CNN and pulling in roughly a third of the viewers as rival Fox News.

Perhaps Baldwin can help give the network a bump in the ratings.

‘Real Housewives Of Miami’ Star Adriana De Moura Goes Nude For PETA

Published June 1, 2014 by gossipzoo

Adriana De Moura

Real Housewives of Miami star Adriana De Moura has taken it all off for a new PETA ad campaign to bring attention to marine animal captivity.

The new ad focuses on Lolita, a killer whale that has been living in captivity at the Miami Seaquarium since 1970.

De Moura and PETA are hoping to get the animal freed and returned to her native Puget Sound, Washington area wiht the campaign.

The new ad features Adriana naked and in a bathtub with the question, “Could you live in a bathtub for 40 years?” — likening the experience to what Lolita is going through.

“Lolita has been stuck in a tiny tank at the Miami Sequarium since 1970, when she was torn away from her ocean family,” the ad reads. “She is a lone orca surrounded by concrete and chemically treated water, and the Sequarium refuses to release her to a coastal sanctuary. Help free her by taking action at PETA.org.”

Adriana De Moura

De Moura is the first ever Brazilian to posed nude for one of PETA’s animal rights campaigns, and she says that in her native country marine animal captivity for entertainment is banned.

She also explained that taking it all off (except for some strategically placed tape) was difficult.

“Getting naked is not as easy as it sounds in front of everybody,” she told NBC Miami’s Latin Beat blog, “but again I believe its for a good cause so if my nakedness can bring awareness to this appalling situation then I’m still in it literally in hot water.”

The Seaquarium also responded with a statement, saying, “Moving Lolita in any way, whether to a new pool, a sea pen or to the open waters of the Pacific Northwest, would be an experiment. And it is a risk with her life that we are not willing to take. There is no scientific evidence that the 48 year-old post-reproductive Lolita could survive if she was returned to the ocean.

“It would be irresponsible, reckless, and cruel to treat her life as an experiment and jeopardize her health and safety in order to appease a group of activists. These individuals will never be satisfied with the care she receives.”

Adriana isn’t the only Real Housewives star to shed it all for PETA, fellow RHOM star Joanna Krupa has gone nude for the organization several times, and The Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel also posed naked.

Lindsay Lohan Reportedly Parties With Max George Post Rehab

Published May 17, 2014 by gossipzoo

Lindsay Lohan

She was just released from rehab last week, and Lindsay Lohan is back to her partying ways – or at least hanging out with old friends.

The actress celebrated her new found freedom with a night out with British boy band The Wanted in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.

Photos on Twitter show the actress posing with fans after the band’s concert in Costa Mesa. Specifically, she’s pictured with band member Max George, whom she reportedly dated in the past.

Lohan and George then traveled to the Mondrian West Hollywood hotel, according to the New York Post. Fellow guests reportedly complained about the loud party before it was shut down early Thursday morning.

The actress’ rep has denied the report, telling the publication: “I highly doubt this is true… Although Lindsay did visit her good friend Max…”

Lohan was released from a California rehab at the end of last month after spending 90 days undergoing a court-ordered treatment program.

Will Poulter ‘Totally Fine’ With Swollen Genitals Scene In ‘We’re The Millers’

Published May 17, 2014 by gossipzoo

Will Poulter

Will Poulter was “totally fine” with showing off his nuts in “We’re the Millers.”

The 20-year-old star’s character has to show his swollen genitals to his on-screen family after a spider bites him in the film and Will was not perturbed by the scene, but felt sorry for the make-up artist who had to apply the prosthetic genitals.

He said: “I was totally fine with it. When I read the script, I was like, ‘How are they going to do that?’ It was three hours in make-up, and not a very nice time for the dude who had to apply it. But when you’ve been naked in front of someone for that length of time, over several days, suddenly it becomes strangely normal. Once on, you can’t really walk freely. It’s a lot of glue and not much opportunity to keep much hair.”

The British actor – who stars alongside Jennifer Aniston in the movie – was gripped with the script from his first read, and knew he wanted to be cast.

He added: “I had a very knee-jerk reaction to the script – I knew that I loved it and wanted to be in it.”

Chef Mario Batali Slams Justin Bieber For Peeing In A Mop Bucket

Published May 3, 2014 by gossipzoo

Mario Batali

TV chef Mario Batali has added his name to the growing list of Justin Bieber critics, insisting the pop star’s recent public urination incident in the kitchen of a restaurant is further proof the hitmaker needs “a wake-up call”.

Bieber was recently caught on a cell-phone camera peeing into a mop bucket as he exited a New York diner and his gross action has upset leading figures in the culinary arts.

Outspoken chef and TV personality Anthony Bourdain has already lashed out at Bieber, tweeting, “The chef should have put his foot up this young punk’s a**,” and adding, “My dishwasher ain’t cleaning that up, squirrel balls!”

Now cook and TV talk show host Batali, who has fronted cooking and travel shows with pal Gwyneth Paltrow, has waded into the drama.

Appearing on CNN show Piers Morgan Tonight on Thursday, which Bourdain was guest hosting, Batali said, “I would have brutally kicked his (Bieber’s) a**. That’s not just being funny and flip – that’s actually peeing on somebody’s workplace. That’s odd. That’s weird… I think he just needs a wake-up call.

“I don’t think he’s an evil kid… (but) you can’t defend that.”

Bieber has yet to fully own up to the urination incident, but he appeared to show remorse for the controversy after the footage surfaced online on July 10 by tweeting, “In life u (you) will make mistakes and people will try and tear u down… but u gotta stay positive. Stay strong.. and learn to be better… and… always live to serve others and The Lord. Growing every day.”
