Tell All Book Alleges Elizabeth Taylor Had Presidential Menage A Trois

Tell All Book Alleges Elizabeth Taylor Had Presidential Menage A Trois

Juicy! Elizabeth Taylor is, undeniably, one of the Hollywood greats. Although she recently passed, we love all her old movies–the glamour, the costume, the eyeliner! A new unauthorised autobiography, Elizabeth Taylor: There Is Nothing Like a Dame, by Danforth Prince and Darwin Potter, is advertised as containing “all the gossip unfit to print from the glory days of Hollywood.” The writers claim that Elizabeth seduced US President Ronald Reagan when she was only a teenager.

Apparently, she confided to a friend, who then sold the story to the authors, “Reagan was treating me like a grown woman, and that thrilled me. We sat on his sofa and I could tell he wanted to get it on but he seemed reluctant to make the first move. I became the aggressor. After a heavy make-out session on the sofa, we went into the bedroom.” I’m sorry, but I have a few objections.

1. When did it become illegal to have sex with minors? And how did this not get dug up to ruin Reagan’s election campaign? Because now having sex with a minor is called rape.

2. Did the terms “get it on” and “make out” exist back then? I just can’t picture a 16-year-old Elizabeth Taylor giggling and telling this to a confidante. Can an etymologist tell us when those phrases came into our vocabulary?

3. She is a young, impressionable girl at this point. How likely is it that she seduced a man 20 years her senior? I mean, jail bait is supposed to be really hot, right? Would Reagan need seducing? What did he expect was going to happen when he invited her over for dinner?

The biography also claims she had a three way with President John F Kennedy and Robert Stack, and affairs with Peter Lawford, Frank Sinatra (which apparently ended with a fake pregnancy and a desperate grasp for marriage), Paul Newman, Tony Curtis, and Errol Flynn. I’ll believe it when sex tapes leak!



Kristen Stewart Blames Robert Pattinson For Relationship Failure

Kristen Stewart Blames Robert Pattinson For Relationship Failure

Kristen Stewart is a manipulative vixen wannabe who can’t seem to take any responsibility for herself. After watching the very public disintegration of her relationship with co-vampire and sex god Robert Pattinson this summer, fans are pissed at her laissez-faire attitude when it comes to dating. I’ve forgiven her for the crap wardrobe (she recently told an interviewer that she goes out in the same basic outfit so that paparazzi and gossipers like me don’t read too much into it), but a new interview with Marie Claire got a few gems out of her: what does she want in a relationship?

The question was about her part in On The Road, in which she’s an adventurous young bride who acts pretty fearless. She talked about reading the book: “When I read the book I was like ‘I need to find people that push me like that, I need to find people that make me feel like that’ and I think that was really important for me at a young age,” Stewart explained. I bet her PR maven is working major damage control! It’s a great notion to surround yourself with people who push you to explore the world and be a better person, but I can’t help but wonder who in her life isn’t currently fitting that role! She continued to jam her foot into her mouth: “Certain relationships are comfortable, they are fine, but you get lazy and complacent. I want my friends to trick me out.”

Geez Kristen! Don’t give us the milk without buying the cow? It’s like responding to “how are you?” with a fifteen minute reveal of your darkest secrets! She clearly has a lot of drama bubbling just below the surface that is taking every opportunity to out itself. Girl will be doing a lot of talking in her upcoming promotion of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. Wonder what juicy deets we’ll hear then!



The Situation Poses For New Peta Ad: Too Much Pu**y Can Be A Bad Thing

Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino is posing for PETA’s new ad campaign and it looks like they’re taking it into a new direction. Remember back in 2007 when Khloe Kardashian was the face of their campaign against fur with the slogan ‘Fur? I’d Rather Go Naked!’. Well, things have certainly changed since then because somehow, Mike has landed a deal with the organization and the slogan is horrendous.

Too Much Pu**y Can Be A Bad Thing — really? Of course, we’re talking about cats here, but it’s a little too much. PETA is hoping that The Siutation can continue to lead the company to success, which is rather confusing seeing that Mike is one of the most-disliked people from the Jersey Shore. Though he claims he’s sobered up, he looks pretty crazy in the pic above.

For those who may not know, Sorrentino checked into rehab earlier this year after becoming addicted to painkillers for several years. According to the reality star, he has been sober ever since and doesn’t plan to start drinking anytime soon. Oh – we must point out those Nike Air Yeezy sneakers that Mike is wearing are just.. ugh. He wears them everywhere… literally!

Hopefully this pay check from PETA can help him not only get his act together, but buy himself some new pair of shoes.



Jordin Sparks Reveals That Her and Jason Derulo Have Discussed Marriage: ‘It’s Not Something We’re Scared About’

Jordin Sparks – former American Idol contestant and winner – has said that she and pop star boyfriend Jason Derulo have discussed marriage in the past, despite that the two only started dating one year ago. The ‘Tattoo’ singer explained that their marriage thoughts were quickly pushed to the side when Jason broke his neck last year, which tended to be so serious, he needed surgery for it, while Jordin was left shocked after Whitney Houston’s death just months before wrapping up the film Sparkle.

“It’s not a conversation that we’re scared about,” she told Us Weekly“Before, we both went through tragedies this year – he broke his neck and then Whitney [Houston, whom Sparks worked with on Sparkle] passed - so before it might have been a little too crazy. You really see the people you love and you go, ‘I don’t want to lose you’. So it’s a conversation we have, but we’re not in a rush.”

The singer who has shed 50lbs through healthy eating and a lot of exercising in the last 12 months also told the magazine that she has tried to stay away from airport food when she travels — she’s very picky when it comes to her intake: ”It’s been so crazy… that’s where really watching what I eat comes into play,” Sparks explained.

“I’ve been trying to stay away from all of the stuff at the airports, because that’s where I’ve been living. I’ve been trying to eat a lot of salads, apples, fruits – I’ve been trying to stick with things like that so I can snack on those instead of being like, ‘Oh look, a bag of chips! I’ll just have those!’”



Justin Bieber Prepares For Shocking Pictures And Videos That Are Set To Be Leaked Today

Justin Bieber has made it clear that he’s ready for whatever footage the person who stole his laptop will release. According to user @gexwy - who had leaked two videos of the star allegedly from his laptop earlier this week – Bieber has some very private and personal videos and pictures on that laptop that certainly shouldn’t be seen by his fans. But, it looks like he has no choice but to come to terms with it because they are all coming out today.

The conversation between the two went like this:

gexwy

TOMORROW. u’ve been warned. should of listened @justinbieber

Justin Bieber
@gexwy no matter what you have and what you post tomorrow i know my fans wont leave me. screw it. #toostrong
gexwy

and the rest of u can just shutup. u have no idea what i have and when u see tomorrow u will feel different.

Sounds like Justin may have something personal on that laptop after all – besides, why would he have to reply to this user if there wasn’t anything bad on there. The world has already been treated to an alleged picture of Justin Bieber nude, but Justin has denied these allegations, despite the fact that the person in the picture also has a tatto in the same spot the singer has his.

Bieber tweeted earlier in the day: ”Sucks when u take personal footage and people don’t respect your privacy,” Bieber tweeted. “Yesterday during the show me and my tour manager Josh had some stuff stolen. Really sucks. People should respect other’s property… I had a lot of personal footage on that computer and camera and that is what bothers me the most. #lame #norespect.”

Kanye West’s New Song ‘White Dress’ Hints At Marriage To Kim Kardashian

Kanye West's New Song Hints At Marriage To Kim Kardashian

They’re both so vain and sleazy; they deserve each other! We’ve been dying to know how much time it would take for Kim Kardashian to marry Kanye West, who she’s been dating for less than a year. Of course, their relationship is pretty unique–what other relationship is celebrated daily with gifts of designer clothing, Chanel accessories, and, now, a song? That’s right! A sneak peak of Kanye’s new song White Dress leaked on line, and we are buzzing trying to figure out how to decipher it! Check out the lyrics:

“everybody got problems baby I didn’t pass / and then I used to do things that it make you laugh / like ordering a girl drink in a masquerade glass / you like being a collide as getting cold in the rain / or rocking flaunt all summer like Kurt Cobain / or that that Dolce Gabbana with a few go chains / and you the type of girl that probably deserve a new last name, / but they never let us do our thing / everybody lying on who I bang / we was on fire, but they blew our flame / ain’t no denying baby, you have changed / ’cause now your high heels clicking your lip gloss glisten, your hips start switchin / your pissed off pimping, / ’cause even when we’re kissing baby girl feel different/ friends all distant like no he didn’t / no he didn’t, is you talking bout Kitty / is that bitch still stripping tryin to get a pair of Christians / I swear to God that they gonna get you crazy / but you play it off and say how is work baby well / some other models is too cope that you walk straight / but seen still lot of man at they own hey / but babe I call you back and say that you always / and kept me on the phone”

Interpretation? White dress, new last name, Dolce and Gabana, rumours about sex. Those are the fundamentals of their relationship. How could this be perceived as anything other than an ode to Kim? They were spotted house hunting earlier this week. Despite the problems that he mentions “you have changed…when we’re kissing baby girl feels different”, the rest is pretty devoted! What do you think? Will the E! executives give Kim permission to marry Kanye? Will their wedding be covered with a 96-hour wedding special? Will you watch?!



It’s As Raunchy As Expected: Rihanna Releases ‘Unapologetic’ Album Artwork

Wowza! Rihanna wasn’t lying when she told her fans “once a good girl goes bad, she’s gone forever”. The singer is gearing up to release her forthcoming studio album ‘Unapologetic’ in November and today marks the day of the release for the album artwork, and it’s pretty bad-ass if you ask us! Rih-Rih is seen topless on the album cover with a lot of text all over her body.

Now the question is, will this be acceptable to release in stores? Considering that children would pass by a music store and see this, it could be seen as too explicit — and note that we have not even seen the deluxe cover for the album yet. No doubt in our minds, some countries will definitely ban the album cover and perhaps cover it up with duct tape – so you can only see her face. Sounds stupid but it does happen. Ha.

Rih has already dropped one single of the upcoming album. Diamonds is the lead single on the record and without a surprise it’s doing very well in the charts. We’re going to assume that she’s stepping away from the dance music and going back to her roots trying to bring back R&B which died out in 2006… around the time when Ciara‘s career went downhill. Sad, right?

Well, let’s hope Rih-Rih can bring back good music because all this Starships were meant to fly is getting boring now. Ha.
