Jon and Kate Gosselin Call it Quits

Here is a weekend update and let’s start with some happy baby news. First it is official supermodel Gisele Bundchen and New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, are expecting their first baby together. Tom has a son with Bridget Moynahan also. The couple is very excited and the baby is due in the early part of next year. Rachel Griffiths, from the ABC show “Brothers and Sisters” just had baby #3, a girl. The new baby joins big brother Banjo, 5 years old, and sister Adelaide 3. She has her hands full that is for sure. Parenthood suits Matthew McConaughy and girlfriend Camila Alves, the two are expecting their second child. Levi is 11 months and will soon be a big brother; the couple is looking forward to this next baby. In other happy couple news it seems that David Duchovny and Tea Leoni are making progress on their relationship. The couple separated last fall due to David’s sex addiction struggles. He entered rehab for his problem and the couple is “still in love”, says a friend of Duchonvy. “They very much care for each other and whatever happens they are working it out for the kids.” The couple has 2 kids, Madeline 10 and Kyd,7.

A huge bonus for fans of the Jonas Brothers this weekend. During their first concert stop which was in Arlington Texas this week, Miley Cyrus showed up to sing a duet with her boyfriend, Nick Jonas. The two have recently gotten back together and here she sang “Through the Storm” with him. How cute is that? The couple is just 16 years old and after the song Miley gave a little peck on the cheek to Nick. Another couple in love will soon be saying “I Do”. Farrah Fawcett has finally agreed to wed long time boyfriend Ryan O’Neal. The two have been together since 1980 and getting married kind of just became a joke between them.  It will be a bittersweet “I Do” since Farrah is currently fighting for her life against cancer. Sadly Farrah is back in the hospital and has been there for several weeks. Farrah is 62 and O’Neal is 68.

It is sad news for Jon and Kate Gosselin plus their brood of 8, the couple has filed for divorce. After 10 years of marriage the couple has decided to split up. Kate says although she is not happy about the situation she does not feel that the TV show led to the split, that is probably would have happened “had the world been watching or not.” The two also shared that they would continue on with the show and just like they have been doing, they would just tape their interviews separately. Well now that Kate is going to be a single mother, how can she walk away from the show and all that money she is going to need to support herself and her 8 children. It’s a shame, but that is reality.
Perez Hilton’s has offended yet another celebrity and has caused quite a ruckus. This time the dispute is between Will.l.Am of the Black Eyed Peas. It seems that Perez is not a fan of his and was being very rude according to Will.l.Am. He even asked Perez at an after party this weekend after the Much Music Awards, “Hey can you do me a favor, Perez?…Can you not be so blatantly rude to our group on your website? That’s just wrong – you don’t have to be disrespectful” According to Will.l.Am Perez said “I don’t respect you. “ Wow, that was pretty rude. Will.l.Am then says Perez called him a “f**got” He says that then “the fans get all crazy and start on Perez Hilton. I’m just sitting there minding my own business waiting for a car.” Now that is not all, Will.l.Am has made his own video in response to the whole issue giving his side of the story but not only that, Perez does that same thing.  This is what he has to say. He say that the Black Eyed Peas manager, Polo Molina punched him and gave him a black eye as well as punching him a few more times. Perez was twittering the whole things and said he was bleeding and asked his fans to call the police to the scene. So this is where we are at the moment. Polo Molina did turn himself into police and Hilton does admit to calling Will.l.Am a f**got “saying it was the worst thing he could think of to call the singer at the time. He also called the singer “a f***ing coward” and that “he would have had more respect if he would have punched him in the face himself.” Come on people grow up and play nice – seriously are you 12???           

David Hyde Pierce Marries Boyfriend

The new Activision “Guitar Hero 5” will be in stores on September 1. Fans are going to be so happy with the new edition and the enhancements that have been added. One of the main new features is that both the diehard fans plus casual players will both be able to enjoy the game. There will be more “social play” meaning you can easily switch from one song to another as well as quickly change the difficulty level. “Guitar Hero 5” will also allow anyone to play whatever fake instruments they want, so if a group of kids all want to play drums…no problem. There will also be more challenges and opportunities to play against people online as well as friends at home. “One game for example, eliminates weaker performers until there’s only one rocker standing.” IT is like a reality TV show right in your own home. Guitar Hero just keeps getting better and better and you can as always expect great music. Guitar Hero has given unknown bands a start just from being heard on the game, like Wolfmother, an Australian band that shot to instant fame. And of course there are the classic bands you will hear like Bon Jovi, and Iron Maiden, and some old yet new faces to Guitar Hero like Elton John and John Mellencamp. There are 82 bands in all on Guitar Hero 5. So enjoy your summer but don’t forget to rush out and buy it on September 1st.

And here are 2 rumors being confirmed and denied by the stars themselves. There has been some buzz about supermodel Gisele Bundchen being pregnant, but hubby Tom Brady, of the New England Patriots, says that is just not true. And remember David Hyde Pierce from “Frasier”, he confirmed with the ladies on “The View” that he did marry his long time partner, Brian Hargrove last October. Pierce says that they did not hide their life but basically have chosen to keep a low profile and not make a big deal. But now with all the controversy and changes in California regarding gay marriage, Pierce has been participating at the gay rights rallies. So David Hype Pierce has California covered and Cynthia Nixon in New York. Let’s get this situation voted on and figured out.

And the Cycle Continues

Excuse me while I pick myself up off the floor after reading the latest news…Chris Brown and Rihanna are back together (with her father’s support).Here is the latest scoop, The two are hanging out at pal Diddy’s  Miami estate working out their issues. Those issues seems pretty easily solved if you ask me…”you beat me up, I am done with you.” But I guess the issues go deeper than that and for some reason she is open to being him. Rihanna is 21 years old with the world at her finger tips and she wants to stay with someone who hits her? Although I was surprised, it seems the professionals say that her response is typical. The director of a domestic violence program at Manhattans Urban Justice Center says that ”the reality is that when you’re in an intimate relationship with anyone you tend to give people chances”.  While Rihanna has remained indoors during the Miami reconciliation, Brown has been out jet skiing and having a grand old time. Rihanna is a role model for so many young girls it is just hard to watch her send the message that it is ok for someone to beat you up as long as they apologize.

And here is one more appalling celebrity story for you. The divorce between Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell Simmons is final and all of the financial needs of his two girls Ming, age 9 and Aoki, age 6 are well taken care of.  Each girl will be paid $20,000 PER MONTH until they reach 19. The girls will also be provided with a car for their use until they reach 16 that is worth at least $60,000 and that will be replaced every 3 years. Honestly, what could the girls use all that money for every single month? What kind of message is that sending these girls and what kind of spoiled brats are they going to grow up to be? I guess there are some who are not affected by the economy. Now get this daddy is forking over all this cash every month yet he gets to see the girls only every 8th week during the school year and on selected holidays. During all of his visits the girls will be accompanied by a security guard as well as a nanny. That’s Hollywood for you huh?
In other happier news, Tom Brady, the New England Patriots quarterback, and the beautiful Gisele Bundchen officially tied the knot in California this weekend. It was a small private affair for the couple.
