John Travolta Almost Quit Acting Following The Death Of His Son

John Travolta has said he almost retired from acting when his beloved son, Jett Travolta, suddenly passed away during a family holiday to the Bahamas in 2009. Jett, who was only sixteen-years old, reportedly suffered a seizure while taking a bath – hitting his head severely hard on the tub – and it wasn’t long before ambulance arrived at the scene, taking the youngster to the hospital, only then to find out he had already stopped breathing.

“I lost my son a few years ago and I’ve been having quite a time of that,” he told BBC Breakfast. “After three years of getting support from my church and people, fans and family, I decided it was as good a time as any to come back to work. I thought of retiring because I thought it was too much.”

Travolta’s first film he worked on after his son’s death was Oliver Stone’s Savages, wich the actors says was an offer he just couldn’t turn down, considering Oliver is an award-winning respected director in Hollywood. Speaking of his comeback in the movie, Travolta shares: ”He’s a top director, if I was going to come back to work, this is the film to come back to.”

When asked on what he thought on the Kate Middleton topless photos scandal, John explained that there should be a law on how far people can go until they reach their limit. He refers the incident being like Princess Diana’s invasion of privacy: ”There is a right to privacy whether you’re famous or not. Anyone being invaded at that level is unfortunate, there should be a law.

“It’s the worst time to be famous in the history of fame, because of the internet and level of invasion of privacy is so extraordinarily high. It’s never been easy, but this kind of thing is an example, and Diana was an example. I call it celebrity prison, you’re restricted to hotel rooms and homes and resorts that hopefully are secure, but you don’t really get out a lot.”



Paris Hilton’s Rep Clarifies Homophobic Rant: ‘She Is A Huge Supporter Of The Gay Community’

Paris Hilton‘s reps have clarified what the socialite was trying to say when she made the comment that all gay people probably have aids, adding that she’d be scared to be a homosexual because she’d probably die of the disease. The story went viral and has put Paris in a position she’d rather want to avoid – but it seems that her representatives are now trying to soothe the situation by explaining what Hilton was trying to say when she made the homophobic rant in the cab.

According to her team, she was in the cab with her friend, who is also gay, when he showed her a gay dating website named Grindr – known to be one of the biggest social/dating websites for the gay community. Paris bursted out saying: ”Ewwww. Most of them probably have AIDS… I would be so scared if I was a gay guy… you’ll like die of AIDS.”

The statement that Paris’ representative presented to the media said the following: “Paris Hilton’s comments were to express that it is dangerous for anyone to have unprotected sex that could lead to a life-threatening disease. The conversation became heated after a close gay friend told her, in a cab ride, a story about a gay man who has AIDS and is knowingly having unprotected sex.

“He also discussed a website that encourages random sex by gay men with strangers. As she was being shown the website her comments were in reference to those people promoting themselves on the site. The cab driver who recorded this, only provided a portion of the conversation. It was not her intent to make any derogatory comments about all gays.”

The statement ended with the rep adding that the former reality-TV star is a big supporter of the gay community – seeing that she has many gay friends who she is surrounded by every day. “Paris Hilton is a huge supporter of the gay community and would never purposefully make any negative statements about anyone’s sexual orientation.”

What do you make of Paris’ comments?! Good, bad, hurtful, stupid? And, let us know if you think this will hurt her career.



Will Teresa Giudice Be Fired from RHONJ?

Will Teresa Giudice Be Fired from RHONJ?

Say it isn’t so! Sources over at Bravo’s hit show, The Real Housewive’s of New Jersey are saying that there are rumblings that Teresa Giudice could be on her way out when it comes time to renegotiate next season’s contracts. The reality star generates tons of controversy and at this point she is on the outs with pretty much the entire cast of the show. Her touching off the current “strippergate” mess seems to have caused somewhat of a long-term (if not permanent) rift between her and the other ladies. Says the insider,

“Producers may shake up the series next season and get rid of Giudice. Although she creates all the drama, the other Housewives hate her and her storyline is getting stale — she holds on to the same grudges!”

It’s true, all of Teresa’s battles have gone on for years. Especially the family feud between the Giudice’s and the Gorga’s. Teresa has never accepted her brother’s wife and it’s a situation that she makes worse every time an opportunity arises. The battles are old and can only be rehashed so many times over, but people tune in to see what devious behavior she’ll conjure up next.

Meanwhile, all the other housewives’ want her gone. Period. Even Jacqueline Laurito, who was basically Teresa’s best friend, now hates her guts. It’s clear that the producers have a serious decision to make, keep Teresa around for the sake of continuing the same drama or cut her and breathe new life into the other ladies interactions. The question is this, would there really be anything to watch if Teresa leaves? She is the catalyst to everything that happens, isn’t she?

Is it time to fire Teresa or would it be a huge mistake? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!

Teresa Giudice Claim Other Housewives Use Her To Get Attention

Teresa Giudice Plays the Victim - As Usual

What on earth would Teresa Giudice do if she wasn’t a Bravolebrity? I mean, seriously? How would she ever exist if her life was just, normal?  If you’re a Real Housewives of New Jersey fan than you already are aware of the latest bit of Teresa-fueled drama. It’s insinuated that her sister-in-law Melissa (the woman Teresa hates more than anyone else on earth) used to dance at a club called Lookers many years ago. At a recent Jersey fashion show the old club manager just so happened to walk up to Melissa and try to start a conversation. It’s a moment that all of the ladies believe Teresa orchestrated. I mean if you saw it, well, it sure didn’t look like a coincidence.

None of the other cast members were buying it being a coincidence either and after the show aired many took to their Twitter’s to back Melissa and slam Teresa. This week Teresa blogged about how everyone is using her to grab the spotlight and get attention for themselves which is pretty funny when you take into account the fact that she has been caught SELLING stories to the press to make money off them!

“I know the other women think I’m so dumb (and yet a manipulating mastermind at the same time?), but I do get why they all have to blame me for everything. Because my name on their lips is the only way they ever get attention.

Right Teresa, you are the one that grabs everyone’s’ attention each and every week. Unfortunately it’s because you’re a lying scumbag with a prison-bound husband and spoiled rotten, out-of-control kids. Oh and then there’s the fact that you will stop at nothing to get attention even when it means hurting everybody around you. Poor teresa is right. Once those cameras stop rolling for good she’ll have nothing and no one left in her life!

Do you think the other ladies talk about Teresa to get attention for themselves or because they are appalled by her actions? Tell us in the comments below!

Is Kanye West Now Controlling Kim’s Endorsement Deals As She Plans To Start Family?

Kim Kardashian is planning to step back from reality TV and “tacky” endorsement deals, as she plans to start a family with boyfriend of 6 months Kanye West. Kim has not been shy on the subject that she desperately wants to have kids in the near future, hinting that Kanye was the one by saying the relationship was definitely permanent.

The rapper has allegedly told Kim not to air out all her business on television, because the world doesn’t need to know everything that’s going on in her life, and he definitely doesn’t want his personal life out there when the relationship goes one step further.

A source has revealed: “Kim has secretly been getting embarrassed about how much her family share and there’s no way Kanye would allow the intimate moments of their relationship to be filmed. He is happy to be in the background, but he thinks some things should be kept private.”

Kanye’s vision on Kim’s success is much different than to what the reality star had in mind. According to the source, Kanye has asked Kim to turn down a lot of offers because they are “too tacky” – could he be referring to the Skechers trainers that she was advertising, only to find out that they were fake? Ha.

The source added: “Kanye is thinking of their brand as a duo now, rather than her family’s. He thinks some of what she’s put her name to is tacky and has already advised her to say no to certain things.”

West’s plans are said to have upset Kardashian’s mother and manager Kris Jenner, as she is worried about what they may do to the rest of the family. The whole empire is based around Kim and it is her celebrity status that drives the brand. For her to turn her back on it would not only be a devastating blow to the family, but most of all to her mom, Kris, too.”



One Direction Have Pocketed $100 Million… And An Extra $200 Million For Simon Cowell

One Direction have become a household name, not only in the UK, but worldwide – especially in America. The five boys, who were originally formed by Nicole Scherzinger when she appeared as a guest judge on X Factor UK in 2010, have reportedly earned $100 million throughout the two years, thanks to huge sponsorships, endorsement deals and more.

According to  Tom Bower‘s biography of Simon Cowell, the author explained how the boys revived Cowell’s record label by receiving a whopping total of $200 million through the success of One Direction, who have sold 5 million copies of their first album, Up All Night.

“One Direction were Cowell’s new Westlife – a revival of his mastery of the music business,” Bower wrote. “Nothing had been left to chance by Sony Music, with the band’s hit album Up All Night selling over five million copies.”

“The songs, publishing, discs, DVDs, merchandising and endorsements brought in huge profits, with the five members of the group together estimated to have earned nearly £100 million ($162 million). Naturally, Sony and Syco raked in much more.”

The boys who are going on tour next year – with already 100 dates confirmed will reportedly make the same amount of money in 2013 – if not more – seeing that fans are so eager to see them that most of the confirmed dates have already been sold out.

Pink Says If She Wasn’t Planning Her Upcoming Tour, She’d Be Probably Be Pregnant Again

P!nk has just released her latest studio album The Truth About Love, followed by a world tour early next year, which she says is one of the reasons she is not planning to get pregnant right now. The singer who already has a daughter named Willow by husband Carey Hart says that if she wasn’t doing all the things she has planned, she’d probably be pregnant by now.

“I mean if I weren’t going, getting ready to go on tour, I’d be pregnant. I’m barefoot and pregnant in my garden with an attitude.”

The ‘Blow Me One Last Kiss’ singer added that during her pregnancy last year, she became very angry – to the extend where she describes the experience being like the movie 28 Days Later. Pink explained: “They were infected with the rage virus and that’s what I had. I didn’t battle morning sickness, I didn’t have cravings. I had rage!”

Joking on breastfeeding her daughter Willow until she’s a teenager, the singer added: ”I’m a hippie at heart. [How long will I do it?] Until prom! I’m going to carry her to prom in a Baby Bjorn. ‘Willow, your feet are dragging’,” while she talks on her hubby: ”He’s amazing. He’s exactly the dad I thought he’d be. He was raised by a single dad, so he’s completely capable. Sometimes I feel like if I didn’t have the boob, I wouldn’t be necessary!”

So far, here are the confirmed details of where Pink will be heading first for her world tour:

  • February 13 – Phoenix, AZ, US Airways Center
  • February 15 – Las Vegas, NV, Mandalay Bay Events Center
