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.

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.”

Seth Rogan’s Tweetstarter

I’m using Kickstarter to fund my next tweet. Its a passion tweet I’ve been trying to tweet for years but nobody will let me tweet.

If you donate, you get personal updates on the tweet, although I will be keeping all revenue from the final tweet.

There’s no actual guarantee that the final kickstarted tweet will even be tweeted if you donate, because tweets tend to fall apart in prep.

@Sethrogen I’m sorry you hate Kickstarter. In any event, I think you’re super funny and I laughed my ass off at “This Is The End.”

Alyssa Milano ‘Leaks’ Sex Tape To Bring Attention To Crisis In Syria

Published September 17, 2013 by gossipzoo

Alyssa Milano Sex Tape

Alyssa Milano has a sex tape. The Charmed star revealed on Wednesday that she and an unnamed male companion vacationed in Cabo recently and taped their bedroom antics.

The scene was set with a classy hotel suite, rose petals scattered on the bed and floor, candles giving the room a romantic glow.

But when the time came for action, Alyssa bumped the camera she had just set up and it spun around to focus on… the nightly news, where an anchorman was relaying all the details about the current situation in Syria and the U.S. being at the doorstep of yet another war.

Of course, the video is just a gag for Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s comedy website Funny or Die!, but, like numerous others before it, it’s meant to raise a little political awareness about a humanitarian issue.

Milano’s video was made with the purpose of sending a message and getting people to see that there are some major issues going on in the world right now.

“I think it was a really fun way to get people to realize that there are important issues our country is dealing with right now,” the actress tells website Mother Jones. “If people end up learning something about the crisis in Syria that’s a good thing-even if I had to do a sex tape to lure them in.”

So basically, Alyssa thinks we’re all sitting around watching celebrity sex tapes and have no clue about the Syrian Civil War that’s going on right now, currently puttin the government between a rock and a hard place on whether or not to order an air strike on the nation over President Bashar al-Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons.

Angelina Jolie To Receive Honorary Oscar For Humanitarian Efforts

Published September 17, 2013 by gossipzoo

Angelina Jolie

The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the recipients of four honorary awards it will give out this year at the fifth annual Governor’s Awards gala in November.

Angelina Jolie, who will be presented with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, will be joined by Angela Lansbury, Steve Martin and costume designer Piero Tosi.

“The Governors Awards pay tribute to individuals who’ve made indelible contributions in their respective fields,” said Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “We couldn’t be more excited for this year’s honorees and look forward to bringing their peers and colleagues together to celebrate their extraordinary achievements.”

The honorary awards come in the forme of the typical Oscar statuette, and are given “to honor extraordinary distinction in lifetime achievement, exceptional contributions to the state of motion picture arts and sciences, or for outstanding service to the Academy.”

Jolie’s award is also an Oscar, her second (she won Best Supporting Actress for 1999’s Girl, Interrupted), which is given to a person in the motion picture industry “whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry.”

The awards will be presented Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center on Saturday, November 16.

Kate Upton Shows Off One Of Chrissy Teigen’s New Beach Bunny Swim Bridal Bikinis

Published August 3, 2013 by gossipzoo

Kate Upton Beach Bunny

Kate Upton posted a sexy and revealing new photo of herself on Instagram earlier this week wearing a white Beach Bunny bridal bikini designed by pal Chrissy Teigen.

“Rough life,” the supermodel captioned the photo.

Teigen is set to marry singer John Legend sometime this fall, and have planned an 11-day honeymoon, according to People magazine, and she plans to surprise him with selections from her new line.

“I want to wear a bathing suit for my husband that makes me feel sexy,” Teigen told People. “I know other women feel the same way, so I was inspired to design a line.”

The bridal swimwear includes the word “bride” across the back, something Teigen says she added to make it more unique.

“While the swimwear had to be eye-popping as well as functional for honeymoon travel, it also needed to stand apart from other styles on the beach,” she said. “So, we added a little humor!”

Upton has been spending her fair share of time in a bikini lately, filming beach scenes for upcoming comedy The Other Woman in the Bahamas with Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann.

Oscars Red Carpet: Hear From George Clooney, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Quvenzhane Wallis & More

Catherine Zeta-Jones, arrives for The Oscars

For the third year in a row, Starpulse was on the red carpet and talking to all of the celebs as they strolled by in their designer couture gowns. The pace was fast and furious as stars wizzed by to get into place for their performances and presenting duties. Sometimes it was difficult to get grab them, but even if we shouted a question or two, most of them graciously answered.

Our team this year grew to three people, with the addition of our production assistant, who tweeted and added photos to the Starpulse Instagram account throughout the day.

Some of the most gracious A-listers to stop by included Nicole Kidman, Catherine Zeta-Jones and her hubby Michael Douglas, as well as George Clooney. In fact, it was Clooney who shared with us that he was ready for a cocktail before the ceremony even began.

Check out our videos of some of the stars who graced the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars:

80s Nostalgia, Pirates! & Frankenweenies: Which Film Will Win The Oscar For Best Animated Feature?

Published July 1, 2013 by gossipzoo

The Pirates! Band of Misfits

Two years after winning this Oscar for Toy Story 3, Disney’s back in the mix with not one, but two animated features amongst the five nominees in the category.

The studio will have better odds of winning — but it’s not a question of if one of their two films will win, it’s a question of which one will win.

The clear choice here is Wreck-It Ralph, the highly nostagic story of a retro, 80s-style video game bad guy who just wants to be a good guy.

There should be little competition from the two Halloween-themed films: Tim Burton’s lacking Frankenweenie and the equally ‘meh’ ParaNorman.

But watch for Aardman Animation’s The Pirates! Band of Misfits to possibly pull the upset here. The company’s Wallace and Gromit Movie Curse of the Were-Rabbit won this award in 2006, up against Burton’s Corpse Bride and Hayao Miyazaki’s (amazing) Howl’s Moving Castle (released in the U.S. by Disney).

But then again, a film featuring Al Roker as “The Pirate Who Likes Sunsets and Kittens” just can’t win.

We’re still sticking with Ralph here.

The Nominees: Best Animated Feature Film Of The Year

“Brave”
“Frankenweenie”
“ParaNorman”
“The Pirates! Band of Misfits”
“Wreck-It Ralph”

What will win: Wreck-It Ralph
What should win: Wreck-It Ralph
