A new episode of The Bachelorette starring JoJo Fletcher aired last night and the most interesting thing that I found out was – Justin Bieber is a huge fan of the show, OH MY! He was on social media and commented on something related to the show, which caused people to ask- is that really you? to which he replied, “Yeah I watch The Bachelorette, don’t judge me.”  #busted

 

Britney Spears is releasing a new single soon and my sources tell me the song will pay homage to her relationship with Justin Timberlake and possibly not in a good way. Can’t Wait! said with a devilish grin! The video for the single has been filmed and in one scene she is seen wearing a denim outfit! Remember when she and Justin wore those adorable matching denim outfits to the American Music Awards in 2001! No specific release date has been announced, but just know I am on the case!

 

Dance Mom Abby Lee Miller pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud Monday. One of the many items mentioned in the case against her cites that she took $120,000.00 in cash made from the Australian spin off of her show. She divided it up, put it in plastic bags, then made her friends stuff it in their luggage and illegally carried it back to the United States. Sentencing in the case is set for October 1st. She could spend up to the 30 months in the slammer!

 

Kanye West released his video for Famous this weekend and the majority of those featured in the video are not happy! 12 unclothed celebrities and politicians made of wax including Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian along with Ray J, Former President George Bush, Rhianna, Chris Brown, reality star Amber Rose, Taylor Swift, disgraced actor Bill Cosby, Caitlyn Jenner, Anna Wintour and Donald Trump were all featured in bed at the same time. President Bush’s spokesperson issued a statement that said, “in case there is any doubt, that is not President Bush, he is in much better shape.” Chris Brown, said he actually liked the video! #bigsurprisethere The world is awaiting a comment from Taylor Swift since she; Kanye and Kim have a long-standing feud related to the song.

 

Let’s just call it the burp heard around the world! While in concert in England, Adele called a fan up on stage. The fan wanted to take a selfie. Adele took the selfie, then said “Oh My God, I just burped!” and then she started laughing hysterically and gave the fan a hug! She followed that up by telling the crowd, “Sorry I had a dirty burger before I came on!”

 

Kylie Jenner surprised Ariana Grande on her 23rd birthday yesterday by sending her a massive box of her sold out Kylie Lip Kits! Ariana was so excited posted pics with the kits on social media! Do you think Ariana forgot she has her own line of vibrant lip shades sold through MAC cosmetics? She played a huge show on her birthday in Chicago along with Iggy Azalea, Calvin Harris, Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor!

Look who was chosen as one of ‘Expedia’s Top Wedding Planners’ and asked to introduce their favorite Dallas venues for tying the knot!?!? It was ME!! I’m so flattered to be included in this article as well as mentioned among our industry leaders!    

Please see the full story here: 

“Wedding Planners Guide to Wedding Venues’’ 

 

 

Selena Gomez said she fully supports her bestie Taylor Swift’s very quick, some say rebound relationship with Tom Hiddleston stating that if Taylor is happy, more power to her! She went onto jokingly say that DJ’s and musical artist have not worked out well for either one of them, so maybe they should both see if an actor is the way to their hearts. Both Swift and Hiddleston attended Selena’s concert this week in Nashville sitting in a private box with country singer Kelsea Ballerini. As for Taylor’s ex Calvin Harris, it just keeps going from bad to worse…he has now been dropped as an underwear model for Armani.

 

Iggy Azalea has given back Nick Young the massive 10-carat yellow diamond engagement ring her gave her. In return he gave her back the 1962 classic Chevy Impala she gave him for Christmas. My sources saw it being towed on a flatbed from the residence they shared. Not sure if she is going to want to keep it- as it would seem to be a constant reminder of Nick and their failed relationship- due to him cheating on her- then bragging about to all his basketball buddies!

 

You have to check out the July/August Women’s Fitness magazine cover we have posted for you! Featured on the cover is a gorgeous and very fit Jenna Dewan Tatum! She looks fabulous! Many thought she always look so good just because she is on the arm of hubby Channing Tatum! Oh No, not the case! Ladies, she said her secret to her amazing body is not spending hours at the gym, but instead doing a power workout for 45 minutes. She also credits her vegan diet, which she says Channing does not participate in… he hates vegetables” she claims! #imgivingupvegetablesifIcanlooklikechanning.

 

Super Model Hailey Baldwin may have just spilled the beans on her rumored romance with Drake. For all you hoping for another Hollywood “It Couple” it sounds like they might just be “great friends”,  #withbenefitsjustsayin. Hailey said “I have known him for a long time, I don’t think people know that…I have known him for four years”- let me stop here and remind all of my fabulous readers she is 19 years old, which means she met Drake when she was 15 years old…Oh My! She goes on to say, he is “just a great friend” #imnotbuyingit

 

Donatella Versace paid a beautiful tribute to her friend Prince. During the Versace fashion show in Milan she surprised  guests’ by playing 11 minutes of unreleased music from Prince. Prince had sent her the music prior to his death two months ago, the two have been longtime friends.

 

Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne are helping show the world that love wins! Despite Ozzy’s admitted cheating scandal one month ago, my sources are telling me the two plan to renew their wedding vows on July 4th, the date of their 34th wedding anniversary! LOVE THAT! LOVE WINS!

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show -Uncorked Afternoons with Leigh Ann on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

 

Who knew the singing sensation from Barbados, Rhianna was a huge NBA fan! Rhi Rhi took to social media to throw some shade at Steph Curry after the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the defending champs the Golden State Warriors to win the NBA Championship. She posted a pic of Steph Curry with the caption that said “LeBron had a bigger night, won the Finals MVP and ultimately the championship!” OUCH! #rhirhimeangirl

 

Iggy Azalea & Nick Young have broken up after trying to make their relationship work after a cheating scandal that happened just one year after their engagement! Iggy said, “Unfortunately although I love Nick and I have tried to rebuild my trust in him, it’s become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to. I  wish Nick the best. It’s never easy to part ways with the person you planned you’re entire future with but futures can be rewritten and as of today mine is a blank page.” That pretty much says, she’s done!

 

The LA County Sheriff’s Department is saying they may have a new “bling ring” burglars on their hands targeting celebrity houses. Recently the homes of Kevin Hart, Chris Brown and Scott Disick  have all been broken into in similar fashion. The thieves seem to know their travel schedules and are looting predominately jewelry and cash. They have no suspects at this time!

 

No one can deny that Kris Jenner has been nothing short of genius in building the billion-dollar Kardashian brand, and it looks like she has no plans of stopping anytime soon. She is demanding that her son Rob and his fiancé Blac Chyna chose a name for their baby/ her grandchild now, so that she can buy up every website and more by name in order to protect the Kardashian brand #greedygranmomager! The baby is due in November.

 

Celebrities around the world took to social media to post about and honor their father’s! Some of my favorites included: fb founder Mark Zuckerberg who posted an adorable pic with his daughter Max with a message that read, “Most rewarding job I have ever had!” Bachelorette and Dallas’ own Jojoba Fletcher thanked her father “for the wisdom, support and confidence he has given her.” Seth Meyers posted a super cute photo of his son Ashe, with a caption that said “I’m crushing on my first #fathers day as an honoree.

 

If you have ever wondered what some of the benefits of dating Taylor Swift would be Tim Hiddleston took advantage of some of those yesterday including using her private jet to fly to New York and the use of her super lux car and driver to take him to the gym for workout!

 

Blake Shelton celebrated the Big 4-0! over the weekend with girlfriend Gwen Stefani! They celebrated on his tour bus in route to Grand Junction Colorado for the Country Jam Festival. Gwen documented the entire thing on Snapchat complete with silly glasses, glitter headbands and a guitar shaped cake!

Taylor Swift certainly does not seem to be spending her time writing songs since she and Scottish DJ Calvin Harris split two weeks ago! What has she been doing you ask? Well photos have surfaced of Taylor with Thor villain and Avengers actor Tom Hiddleston cuddling and kissing on the beach in Rhode Island as they romantically look out over the Atlantic Ocean! OH MY! Hiddleston, who many are saying will be the next James Bond since Daniel Craig announced he is not returning, met Taylor at the star studded Met Ball this year. Video has surfaced of the two dancing at the ball and many say their instant connection was intense! Sparks flew! In case you are wondering how Calvin feel about all this…he has un-followed Taylor on all social media and deleted his original tweet about the two having nothing but love and respect for each other- OUCH!

 

Blake and Gwen’s relationship is about to get the ultimate test! Gwen heads out on tour mid-July through mid-October. My sources are telling me she is trying to get Blake to come along but he is not thrilled with the idea of being a tour sidekick. It is understandable that she might have trust issues since her ex Gavin cheated on her- with their nanny- while she was on the road. Blake only has a sprinkling of shows through the summer with his tour kicking back into gear in September.

 

Kim Kardashian West graces the cover of GQ 10th Anniversary Love, Sex and Madness Issue. In case you are playing a drinking game this will be her 7th nude cover! #ewwwwwww.   I can’t deny she does look amazing displaying her signature asset and the 60 pounds she has lost since giving birth to Saint, her son with hubby Kanye West. The magazine hits newsstands in July.

 

Muhammad Ali’s 17-year-old grandson just landed a modeling contract! The name Ali Walsh may not be familiar to you now, but you are about to start seeing a lot of him! He just signed with modeling giant Wilhelmina Models joining the likes of Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato and Shawn Mendes! We have posted pics of Ali Walsh at On the Kannon and Sybil More Music Mornings Page at kvil.com– so you will recognize him when you see him -start popping up in ads everywhere! #hesaknockout.

 

Zayn Malik is now speaking out about the reason he has been so reclusive and recently cancelled a show in London. He has said that since leaving One Direction he suffers from anxiety about performing solo. He wants his performances to be flawless and develops intense anxiety before a show for fear that they will not be absolutely perfect. On and off girlfriend, Victoria’s Secret Angel and Supermodel Gigi Hadid flew to London to be by his side after his most recent cancellation this past Saturday in London. He claims he has also needed validation for the quality of his music, which he admits getting from- none other than Gigi’s BFF Taylor Swift. We certainly wish him well.

 

Amber Heard filed a declaration of ‘Withdrawal Request for Temporary Spousal Support’ from estranged husband Johnny Depp. Heard claims she thought ‘Spousal Support’ was a standard filing in divorce, but now feels it is drawing attention away from the alleged abuse issue. She feels it is being used against her- to distract the public away from the very serious issue of domestic violence. The two will face off against each other for the first time in a Los Angeles courtroom this Friday.

 

Imagine sitting in Kleinfeld- in New York, the legendary bridal store seen in TLC’s ‘Say Yes to the Dress’. You are there to pick out shoes to match your dress. The door opens and out walks the sales associate- and it just so happens to the be the world’s biggest fan of ladies shoes… Sarah Jessica Parker #carriebradshaw. Parker, surprised 3 brides by giving them shoes from her new collection! One pair look very similar to the Mah-nolo’s she wore when she finally tied the knot with Mr. Big in the Sex and the City movie!

Adele emotionally began a performance in Belgium honoring victims of the Orlando massacre. She started her concert by saying, “ I would like to start by dedicating this entire show to everyone in Orlando and at Pulse nightclub” she told the audience as she teared up. She went on to say, “The LBGT community, has been my soul mates- since I was really young- and I am so moved by it.” Adele you are one beautiful soul!

 

If you were wondering if all the “Liam and Miley are going to get married” rumors are true, Liam pretty much confirmed- they are! During an interview in Australia he was asked if he and Miley would like to start a family,  he said and I quote “for now we are still young and there’s lots of things to do without kids weighing in on the situation, one day we will go down that road and it will feel right.” #liamjustconfirmedthoserumors! As we have reported my sources are telling me the two will wed in Liam’s native country of Australia and additionally make the country their primary residence ditching LA to get out of the limelight.

 

Former contestant of The Voice, YouTube sensation and friend of 103.7 KVIL Christina Grimmie was shot to death after giving a concert in Orlando on Friday night. She died early Saturday morning. Her friend Selena Gomez paid tribute to her during her concert in Miami on Saturday night. With her eyes filled with tears she headed to the piano where she delivered an emotional performance of Transfiguration.  Additionally, Adam Levine showed the world just how much The Voice really is a family. Levine called Grimmie’s mother and told her he would be financially responsible for getting her body transported from Orlando to her hometown in New Jersey. Additionally he stated he would pay for all other funeral expenses. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

 

It has been six long years but the Ugly Betty cast reunited in Austin, Texas on Saturday night at the ATX Television Festival. The entire cast was present including Michael Urie, Vanessa Williams, Rebecca Romijn, and America Ferrera. America hinted in her remarks that Hulu might do a 2 hour Ugly Betty Reunion Special and encouraged the audience to send a tweet with the hash tag Betty reboot! I say #bettyrebootdefinitely!

 

The Tony Awards honoring the best of Broadway were held in New York City Sunday night, and hosted by James Corden on CBS television! Many Presenters and Winners paid tribute to the victims of the Orlando massacre. Hamilton was the evening’s big winner with 11 Tony’s! Presenters included 3 Oscar winners including Common, Cate Blanchett and Barbara Streisand. A slew of past Tony winners including Andrew Lloyd Weber, Chita Rivera, and Neal Patrick Harris. And Emmy winners Oprah Winfrey and Claire Danes.

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Uncorked Afternoons with Leigh Ann on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

 

Last night the CMT Awards were held in Nashville and our very own Chewbacca Mom made an appearance! Lots of pop stars performed with country artists including Pit Bull, Pharrell, Leona Lewis, Fifth Harmony and probably my favorite Elle King with Dierks Bentley.  Elle King said, “I actually did not even know who he was when they paired us up!” She went on to say, “There is way more drinking in the country scene it’s amazing!” Big Winners included Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton, who by the way arrived solo! I think Gwen should have called UBER horse and surprised Blake!  My sources are telling that the CMT network is in contract negotiations to pick up the TV show Nashville cancelled earlier this year by abc. But there was no official announcement during last night’s show, as rumored.

 

Prince Harry has been as they say in London, “cannoodling” with someone! #wesayhookup That someone just so happens to be pop singer Ellie Goulding. They were together recently at his polo match and my sources tell me they kissed under a picnic blanket! OH MY!  What would the Queen say!  You might recall Goulding performed at the wedding reception of Harry’s brother,  William and Kate. I love the idea of a Princess Ellie!

 

I’ve got Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth on my radar! Sources say, the two are planning a summer beach wedding in Australia. This wedding could be very interesting since it will be a combination of Liam’s very classic and Miley’s very quirky style.

 

If you have been watching The Bachelorette with Dallas’ own JoJo Fletcher then you know who Chad Johnson is! He’s the hot headed, abrasive contestant who did not get a rose but still appears in next week’s previews….leaving the door open!  Well there is one person who probably hopes the villain is gone for good and that is former NFL Dolphins, Bengals, and Patriots player Chad Johnson. Same name but not the same person. The NFL Chad Johnson has been trashed, cursed at and everything else you can think of on social media by the Bachelor Nation fans! He took all in stride and fired back with a bunch of hilarious remarks!

 

The Amber Heard/ Johnny Depp divorce is showing more signs- that this is going to get very very ugly. It has now been revealed that Heard was once reportedly arrested for domestic violence. The report states that she got into an altercation  with her then girlfriend at the Seattle airport. The prosecutor declined to move the case forward. As we have reported, Heard recently filed for a restraining order against Depp claiming domestic violence. Additionally she is now saying- that once while on a private jet she hid from Depp in the bathroom for three hours because she feared he would harm her. She claims he had an epic bender on the private jet after he saw the disappointing opening weekend totals for his movie Lone Ranger.

 

Beyoncé received the Fashion Icon Award in New York from the Council of Fashion Designers. Her mother Tina, hubby Jay-Z, and adorable daughter Blue Ivy who wowed the crowd in a black feather dress and white jacket accompanied her at the ceremony. Beyoncé channeled  Michael Jackson’s outfit from his 1979 ‘Rock With You’ music video in a sparkling striped sequin Givenchy suit and wide brim hat #showstopping

 

The Kardashian owned boutique Dash located in West Hollywood was firebombed and is now the center of an arson investigation! A witness said they saw a man throw a lit object through the front window of the store. Authorities rushed to the site and once inside found a “heavy object” smoldering on the floor. A suspect has been taken into custody.

Selena Gomez has one more person to add to her already 82.6 million followers on Instagram…and that one just happens to be Justin Bieber, who has decided re-follow her! #selenaonewordblock. Many suspect he is doing this to make 19 year old model Hailey Baldwin jealous, since they have supposedly broken up and his friend Drake was seen leaving the Hollywood hot spot The Nice Guy wearing Baldwin’s H pendant necklace around his neck!

 

Ok, so while Drake is wearing Hailey’s necklace with an H on it, Gigi Hadid is still wearing a Z necklace around her neck! I cannot make this up! Zayn Malik fled to Jamaica after he and Gigi called it quits to get away from the media and clear his head. Well some of the paparazzi decided to follow him and it seems his idea of clearing his head is- to do so with two hot blonds! Meanwhile, Gigi is posting videos on Snapchat singing Zayn’s song “Pillowtalk” while wearing a Z necklace. Poor Gigi! I am texting her today, someone has to tell her about the two hot blondes!

 

Tonight Bobby Brown has a very candid conversation with Robin Roberts about his ex-wife Whitney Houston and daughter Bobbi Kristina. In the interview he says, “it is not a mystery what happened and there was only one person who was around at both occasions.” I won’t spoil it! Tune in tonight at p.m. on abc! Speaking of spoilers– nope not going to do it!

 

Three time world heavy weight champion and one of the world’s greatest sports figures of all time, Muhammad Ali died on Friday at the age of 74. Celebrities around the world including Mark Wahlberg, Nicki Minaj, Kate Hudson, Justin Bieber, Madonna, P. Diddy and more praised Ali for changing the world as a fighter, a humanitarian and a teacher for peace and understanding. Services for Ali will be held in his hometown of Louisville Kentucky with a private family only service on Thursday and a public tribute on Friday. In plans he laid out before his death, Former President Bill Clinton will deliver the eulogy and Comedian Billy Crystal will speak along with sports journalist Bryant Gumbel. Ali was truly a symbol of greatness inside and outside the ring.

 

Fresh off a very public break-up of her own Taylor Swift honored a promise she made to attend a fans wedding. Swift was contacted by the sister of the groom, who told her that she and her brother’s mother had passed away recently. Before she passed away the couple actually got married in the hospital so that the grooms Mother could attend the wedding. They even did a mother and son dance to Swift’s song Blank Space. Taylor was so touched by the story she committed to attend the couples public wedding this past weekend in New Jersey. She performed Blank Space and even gave the couple a handmade card. She posted a picture with the couple on Instagram and in case you are wondering- YES! Calvin Harris liked the photo.

 

Pink also surprised someone this weekend… her daughter Willow at her 5th birthday party. Her daughter loves the movie ‘The Martian’ and has a huge crush on Matt Damon #whodoesnt. Her daughter asked Pink if Matt Damon could attend her birthday party! Well he did…sorta! Pink presented her daughter with a birthday cake shaped like Mars with an astronaut figure poised on top with a photo of Damon’s face! TOO CUTE!

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

 

Pop Star Taylor Swift might be penning another hit heartbreak song right this very moment. Swift and DJ Calvin Harris have split after dating for little over a year. My sources are telling me that no specific incident prompted it, there was no drama it is as simple as things just did not work out. It has definitely been a tough few weeks for Harris after being involved in a car crash in which he was briefly hospitalized and now this…we wish them both the best!

 

New York Giants football fans are in an uproar now that Khloe Kardashian is officially dating NFL player O-dell Beckham Jr. They have always denied rumors of them dating. Weelll Drake hosted this little pool party over Memorial Day and the two attended and were caught in some very touchy feely PDA moments that showed that they are more than just friends, as they like to say! Giants’ fans are upset because they say she will jinx the team and ruin Beckham’s career much like she did James Harden and Lamar Odom! They call it The Kardashian Kurse! As a Dallas Cowboy fan I support this relationship 100%!!

 

Disney’s former adorable star couple Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens could be rekindling their relationship! Who could forget Zanessa! My sources have told me that even though Hudgens is currently dating Austin Butler she has been receiving “sappy” messages from Efron, who is currently now single. Her friends are concerned that even though she vows to never take him back, that could be hard because they say he is very charming! #whatscharmingishisabs!

 

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ nine-year-old daughter Suri Cruise has fired her music teacher! You heard that right; at just nine years old she fired her music teacher over creative differences.  When asked backstage at the Broadway show ‘School of Rock The Musical’ if she played a musical instrument she replied, “I used to play the guitar but have parted ways with my teacher.” Well it certainly looks like someone has inherited her father’s exacting standards!

 

Pop star and UNICEF Ambassador Katy Perry travelled to the rural parts of Vietnam to visit impoverished children. She met with families with disabled children who lack proper education, water, sanitation and hygiene. In a statement Perry said, “All of the children I have met with have incredible dreams, and we have to help them fight for those dreams!” I love when a celebrity uses their star power to help those less fortunate.

 

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills could be getting a fresh face for Season 7! Sydney Holland the infamous ex of Summer Redstone, the Chairman Emeritus of Viacom has been in contact with show producers expressing her interest in joining the cast.  She was introduced to Redstone by Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti Stanger and they started dating immediately. Their relationship lasted about five years before the 93-year-old Redstone kicked her to the curb for allegedly having an affair with a former actor! I say let her join the cast- DRAAAAH-MA!

 

Madonna and Guy Ritchie’s custody battle over their son Rocco appears to be over! Rocco was previously very vocal about the fact that he did not want to live with his Mother during her Rebel Heart Tour because that meant he would have to travel instead he would rather stay in London with his father and go to school. Her tour ended in March and now all appears to be good! They were supposed to be in court yesterday regarding the 15 year olds living arrangements. That case now appears to be disposed with a motion pending to be dismissed by the New State Supreme Court!

Former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel went missing in New York over the holiday weekend. He was supposed to board a helicopter from New York to the Hamptons on Saturday morning but never showed up. My sources tell me he was headed there to host a Memorial Day party for his family. In further troubling news surrounding Manziel,  the owner of the company from which he leased and crashed that Mercedes in Los Angeles earlier this year, confronted him outside the Trump Soho on Friday demanding $90,000 in damages and all the action was caught on video. Well… Johnny Football has been found– probably where you would suspect- he was spotted later in the weekend at the trendy New York nightclub 1 Oak.  Manziel was indicted earlier this year by a Texas Grand Jury on misdemeanor assault charges involving an incident with his ex-girlfriend at the trendy Hotel ZaZa in Uptown.

 

A Dallas concertgoer is suing Chris Brown. Marq Stevenson has filed a lawsuit against Brown claiming he stole his hat and was bullied at a Dallas concert over a year ago.  The lawsuit is specifically asking for: $25.00 for the hat that he says he passed to Brown to ink during the concert, $225.00 for the floor seat he sat in and $2,500.00 because he was bullied by Chris’ posse after the hat was not signed or returned! That totals $2,750.00 for one hat! OH MY!

 

Calvin Harris has not been seen since his horrific auto accident on Friday May 20th until now! He posted a pic on Snapchat over the Memorial Day weekend and we are happy to report he seems to be doing great!

 

Taylor Swift must have been thinking this is the best Memorial Day holiday ever! Her boyfriend Calvin Harris is doing better and her arch nemesis Katy Perry was sending her all kinds of tweets over the weekend. NOT! Katy Perry’s Twitter account was hacked and her 89 million followers (the most on the platform) were all getting tweets involving Swift. The final tweet admitted it was a hacker with the hashtag #hackersgonnahack.

 

Mariah Carey is dropping subtle hints here and there giving all indications that she will be walking down the aisle with Australian billionaire James Packer very soon!  In January of this year he put a BIG! 35 carat ring on it just months after taking their relationship public in September. She won’t give any details except to say she has tapped a Paris based designer to craft her gown.

It’s official, former People magazine Sexiest Man Alive Johnny Depp and actress Amber Heard are divorcing. The shocking news comes just a few days after his mother’s death. The couple was married in February of last year, my sources tell me she is seeking spousal support and there was no prenup. You will remember the couple famously defended their dogs in what become an international incident in Australia last year! No word on whose getting those adorable yorkies! Johnny Depp’s new movie ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ opens tomorrow!

 

One of Hollywood’s hottest young couples Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are dunzo, split, finished!

We have to give Zayn a bit of credit for two reasons… he waited for two weeks after her birthday and he told her face to face over dinner. Versus doing what many his age would have done-that being sending a break-up text. He told Gigi, he wanted to keep his options open and work on himself. People are telling me that Gigi is heartbroken.

 

No one saw this coming, but I bet once you give it some thought you won’t be that surprised. Kanye West has been talking via cell phone to O.J. Simpson in prison. Simpson is currently in a Nevada prison for armed robbery. Kanye admittedly has always had a fascination with O.J. and wrote O.J. a letter giving him his cell phone number and asked him to call. Kanye claims they have talked about Kim, the trail and Kanye’s huge fame #talkingaboutkanyesfameohthatsashocker. Kim is of course furious that her husband is talking to the man who her father Robert defended in a murder trial in which O.J. was accused of killing her mother Kris’s close friend Nicole Brown Simpson.

 

Gwen and her ex Gavin Rossdale had a meeting to discuss how much involvement Blake is having with the three sons they have together! Gavin made it clear to Gwen that he is their father, and he wants to be involved in every decision made on their behalf. #Ibethewantstopickthekidsnextnanny. Blake has no interest in meeting Gavin saying he is disgusted that he cheated on Stefani with their nanny, and he can’t forgive someone who treated his lady this way!

 

Kelly Osbourne is still upset over her father Ozzy’s alleged affair with a celebrity hairstylist. She expressed this by sending a tweet that said  “Anyone looking for a cheap chunky low light blow out and something I won’t say, then call” and she tweeted out to everyone the hairstylist phone number! The number has since been disconnected! Well some people were not amused by her doing this and to them she responded, “ Are you my family, no you are not. You have no idea what she did, so keep your high-mighty opinion to yourself”. Whoa! Gurl! Oh My!!

 

It’s prom season indeed, but how many girls can say they held their prom in France? Elle Fanning can…and did… in Cannes! She is in Cannes promoting her new film ‘The Neon Demon’ which caused the 18 year old to miss her senior prom, so her boyfriend flew across the pond, and they went on a prom date and even posed for classic prom photo! #adorbs

 

Amy Schumer is back with another empowering message against body shaming! She posted a photo on Instagram in a one-piece swimsuit in the ocean from her Hawaiian vacation. The post started “Good Morning Trolls, I hope you find some joy in your lives today in a human interaction- and not just in writing unkind things to a stranger- you have never met”. She ended with a body positive message that said, “I feel happy and I think I look strong & healthy!”  I think you do too Amy! You Go Girl!

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

 

The Bachelorette premiered last night and this year’s Bachelorette JoJo is from Dallas, and yes it is the same JoJo who was rejected at the alter from Bachelor Ben last season! The first night’s episode was dedicated to getting to know the gentlemen vying for JoJo’s love! Here’s a run-down of some of my favorites… one came dressed as a Santa Claus, another listed his profession as Hipster, his parents must be so proud!  another came dressed in a kilt, another listed his job as Bachelorette Super Fan to which Jimmy Kimmel said last night, “he must be gay, right?” And then there was… and I am not making this up the gentlemen who’s profession is Erectile Dysfunction Specialist, yet all eyes appear to be on Jordan Rogers, the brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers…you know Olivia Munn’s boyfriend! Jordan also a former professional quarterback played for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Miami Dolphins!

 

Justin Bieber basically admitted he threw shade at Pink during her performance at the Billboard Music Awards, saying he would not put on a fake smile just for the camera! When the camera showed Justin in the audience during her performance he looked seemingly unimpressed, pretty much scowling at the camera. Social media of course blew up! Following a performance he lip-sync his way through, Bieber accepted his award for Top Male Artist and said on stage “I am not a talker” and left the stage quickly. After he left the show, Justin took to social media in an epic rant (so it appears he is a “talker” he just saved it for social media!) to unleash on award shows in general claiming they are shallow and everyone pretty much just puts on fake smiles! OUCH!

 

The big winners at The Billboard Music Awards included- Adele, Justin Bieber, The Weekend and Rhianna.

Britney Spears the Millennium Award Winner opened the show with a tease of her career-spanning array of hits, during which she tore of her clothes and shimmed around the stage!

Kesha made a triumph return to the stage for the first time- since her legal battles with her producer Dr. Luke began -singing the Bob Dylan classic ‘It Ain’t Me Babe’ alongside Ben Folds. The understated performance spoke volumes about her talent and received a standing ovation. 

Demi Lovato who recently cancelled her concert with Nick Jonas in North Carolina to protest the state’s anti LBGT bathroom ban continued to speak out in support of trans-gender rights. During her performance of Cool For the Summer she wore a black shirt with a gender inclusive symbol on it depicting a half-man/half woman. #confident.

The Go Go’s returned to the stage singing We Got the Beat! While they were amazing, I would be remiss if I did not say, I am sorry girls but your outfits looked like they were straight up cul-de-sac mom garage band!

Celine Dion in a pure example of raw strength belted out a rousing version of Queen’s ‘The Show Must Go On’ received the Icon Award from her son moving her to tears before giving an emotional speech in which she paid tribute to her husband who she lost earlier this year. 

Madonna’s solo in a purple velvet throne and purple paisley suit closed the show with a tribute to her longtime friend Prince singing Nothing Compares 2 U alongside somber footage, she was later joined by Stevie Wonder for Purple Rain.

 

In Kardashian news, Kris Jenner is now claiming she may change her name back to Kardashian stating, “If Caitlyn can change her name so can I!” Ok, Kris!

First it was Justin Bieber, now Selena Gomez is saying she may cancel all her concert meet and greet’s with fans. She issued a statement explaining her decision- “Meeting you guys after my shows has been such a highlight, but because your safety is a priority and most important- if we can’t keep them contained, I’ll have to stop. I’ll do it for as long as I can, but you matter the most. Love you guys”. Question-Why were One Direction, Coldplay, and U2 some of the biggest bands in the world all able to do Meet and Greets but Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez cannot…hmmmm!

 

Dear Dr. Luke, Lady Gaga has eyes on you! You have been warned!

Kesha has been forced to back out of a scheduled performance at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards. The show extended an invitation to Kesha to perform, she accepted. Following Kesha’s announcement that she would perform her music, producer Dr. Luke halted Kesha’s performance. The singer has been in a contentious legal battle with Dr. Luke over allegations he sexually abused her. Well Lady Gaga has now issued a tweet stating “Isn’t it strange that it’s legal to own a woman this way. Listen Ursula , we want her voice back”, likening Dr. Luke to the villain in Disney’s The Little Mermaid!

 

Oscar Winner Leonardo Di Caprio is probably now the front runner for Son of the Year! At the Hearts Fund Generous People Dinner Gala in Cannes he dropped $18,100 on a Chanel Purse for his mother! #goodboy

 

Julia Roberts made a bold statement on the Cannes red carpet. What did she do you ask? When she lifted the hem of her pleated off the shoulder Armani Privé gown to ascend the red carpet steps of Cannes she was…BAREFOOT! #gasp! A horde of paparazzi literally gasp! I confirmed with the Cannes Film Festival and was told  “High Heels are mandatory to attend screenings, even if you are the star of the movie”. Many feel this may have been a rebellious statement from Roberts, because last year many women attending the screening of Carol were turned away because they were wearing flats! I say, You Go Girl!

 

Mariah Carey dropped by Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, last night and she proved she Is still the ultimate DIVA!  arriving late, then asking Andy to sit in the chair normally designated for guests’, claiming she must sit in the host chair because she only wants the right side of her face exposed to the camera. Then Andy brought up the long standing Mimi and Jo Lo feud. You will remember years ago Jennifer Lopez was caught texting during Mariah’s performance at the Billboard Music Awards. Andy ask have yet to address this with Jennifer to which Mariah replied, “I still do not know who she is!” #ouch, #ohsnap

 

Ladies, get your heart monitors ready! Taylor Lautner has officially joined Instagram! His first post was a 60 second video in which he tried to get both Adam Sandler and David Spade help him do something fabulous that would instantly generate followers. Sandler basically told him, I have nothing to offer, as did Spade until Lautner told Spade if he helped him, he would give him Taylor Swift’s cell phone number! Spade immediately offered help!

 

Tyga is now speaking out about the reasons for his breakup with Kylie Jenner. He claims the reasons are-he felt emotionally battered by the Kardashians, the Kardashians monitored his every move and most importantly his friends told him that Kris Jenner told her daughter Kylie that due to Rob Kardashians relationship with Blac Chyna, it makes her an integral part of the family, with no space left for Tyga due to his relationship with Blac in the past! Tyga, really you did not see that coming- since when has Kris Jenner not seized an opportunity to pounce…on anything!

Justin Bieber is in the middle of a nasty lawsuit! A promoter is suing the Biebs for $650,000.00 claiming that a tweet he sent out and his no-show at the Beachclub in Montreal Canada has virtually caused his business to shut down. The contract for the Biebs to sing a few songs, chat with fans and hang out was for $425,000.00. Justin received $250,000.00 upfront at the contract signing. The promoter withheld $175,000.00 which was due prior to the gig because he claims Bieber did not fulfill the social media part of the contract and help promote the event, which caused the Biebs to send out a tweet the day of the event saying due to the promoter breaking his contract and lying, I will not be able to attend tonight’s event, I’m sorry. Needless to say, the event did not happen! #its too late now to say sorry.

 

Sinead O’Connor is no longer missing. She was reported missing May 15th after she went on a bike ride outside Chicago and did not return, leaving family and friends in a panic. The Wilmette Police Department, which had her status as “missing and suicidal”, released a statement changing her status to “safe”. No further details were released.

 

We all know Katy Perry loves the bad boys- well just five days after Orlando Bloom was caught packing on the PDA with Selena Gomez in Vegas, Katy and Orlando have been spotted in Cannes- on a 1.5 billion dollar yacht that has a cinema, dance floor, swimming pool and its own beauty salon! Katy, throw that bad boy overboard!

 

Poor Rhianna! Everyone was throwing shade at Rhi! Rhi! This weekend. First Chris Brown posted a sweet video on Instagram of his adorable daughter Royalty twirling around in a polka dot swimsuit while dancing with Elmo from Sesame Street at her 2nd birthday celebration to Rhianna’s song ‘Work’. The post included a message from Chris saying the selection of song was his daughters; he was throwing no shade, but said, “where’s the Chris Brown music, lol”. The entire post later disappeared, but not before I saw some of the comments! OH MY!

That happened, then on Saturday Night Live the evenings host Drake decided to pile on and throw some Rhi Rhi shade himself by introducing her as part of his monologue, well it turned out it was a faux Rhianna that just so happen to be Drake-in a wig, and he sang ‘Work’! Boys, y’all leave Rhi Rhi alone!

 

The owner of the Nevada brothel where Lamar Odom almost lost his life has extended an invitation for Lamar to come back! Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof stated that sex and alcohol were not Lamar’s issue’s, it was drugs and he promises to enforce the no drug policy,

This time He has offered Lamar, the first night free, two free girls and all the Remy Martin he would like! He has also promised Lamar complete privacy by banning all cameras and cell phones during his visit. To all those critical of his invitation the owner claims that he and his staff are actually the people who saved Lamar’s life, so they really do care about him! #andhismoney

 

Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy and Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter Apple are the A-List new BFF’s. The two were the darlings of this year’s Super Bowl as they watched their parents perform together. As you will remember Beyoncé joined Chris Martin on stage during the halftime show. This past weekend the two were spotted together celebrating Apple’s birthday and Gwyneth posted a picture on Instagram with the caption #godsisters and besties. Gwyneth and Beyoncé first met on the Ellen show in 2010 and instantly bonded out of mutual respect for each other!

The Billboard Music Awards have announced that Madonna will pay tribute to Prince during the show set to air on May 22 on abc. In other Billboard news, Celine Dion will perform and receive the Icon Award. This year’s Millennium Award will be given to Britney Spears, who is also set to  perform!

 

It’s that time of year known for glitz, glam, heels, and yachts! Yes, my Sassies, it is indeed that time of year we call The Cannes Film Festival. For eleven magnificent days Hollywood descends on France. Kendall and Kris Jenner arrived yesterday via helicopter #butofcourse. Celebs I have already spotted on the red carpet include, Victoria Beckham, Naomi Watts, Justin Timberlake, Kristen Stewart, Woody Allen, Blake Lively, and the gorgeous super model Bella Hadid.

 

Oscar nominated actress Minnie Driver is being sued by her 74-year-old next-door neighbor in Hollywood! But why you ask? Well, for allegedly defacing his property by hurling baby food jars filled with black paint over the fence and onto his house! The neighbor additionally claims that he agreed to allow her to put up a security gate around their section of the neighborhood to keep out paparazzi, she did and then refused to give him the gate code so he could not enter his own property! I cannot make this up! Only in Hollywood!

 

OH MY! Photos have surfaced of the After-Party following Selena Gomez’s concert in Las Vegas! It appears one concert goer named Orlando Bloom liked the show so much he felt compelled to really thank Selena for such an amazing performance! Photos show the two of them very cozy and snuggly in a booth at the party! You are probably saying to yourself wait, I thought Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry were dating… well supposedly they are and were most recently together at the Met Ball in New York, yet on this particular Saturday night Katy was at the Renaissance Festival in California, all the while Orlando is packing on the PDA with Selena Gomez in a booth in Sin City! #whathappensinvegasdidnotstayinvegas

 

Sharon Osbourne confirmed on The Talk that she and Ozzy have indeed split, due to his alleged affair. The first clue was when she walked on stage carrying a large glass of lemonade, a very sly nod to Beyoncé’s new album and the song that reference badly behaving husbands!

 

Justin Bieber was seen oddly walking around Boston yesterday with headphones on & barefoot- walking across crosswalks, through the park and in the luxe Four Seasons Hotel where he was staying- shoeless! You will remember last week during his concert in Philly he sat near the edge of the stage, closed his eyes, and started crying while belting out lyrics, before that he cancelled all concert Meet and Greets. We are all hoping the pressures of this concert tour are not going to make the Biebs return to his careless ways of the past!

While the world is celebrating Janet Jackson being pregnant with her first child, one person is saying…not so fast! James DeBarge Janet’s first husband is now saying this is not her first child claiming Janet had a baby before and gave it up for adoption. In other baby news Ryan Gosling revealed on The Jimmy Kimmel Show last night that he and Eva Mendes welcomed their second child, a daughter Amanda Lee to the world on April 29th.

 

While interviewing Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Florida for the Today show Jenna Bush Hager pointed out to Harry -who is one of the most eligible bachelors in the world- that her sister Barbara Bush- just so happens to be single! Harry a bit shocked said, “let’s talk off-air” and Jenna replied, “Great I will give you Barbara’s number”.

 

Kaley Cuoco scored big in her divorce settlement from her ex Ryan Sweeting! Kaley makes 1 million per episode for The Big Bang Theory, with a 72-episode contract.  In the divorce settlement her ex is only getting $165,000.00 plus any gift cards and gift certificates! #havefunattarget. She also agreed to pay a $195,000.00 bill from personal trainers for the former tennis professional. Additionally, she keeps their primary home and the beach house in Santa Barbara! You Go Girl!

 

If you had to guess which one Mom in the world probably had a Mother’s Day like no one else, I suspect many of you would say Kim Kardashian, and you are correct! As she walked down the stairs of her estate she was surprised with an ORCHESTRA! In the living room that her husband Kayne West hired to perform just for her!

Personally, I prefer what John Legend did for his wife Chrissy Teigen. He hand wrote a personal message on a onesie that their newborn daughter Luna Simone was wearing.

 

The moment is here…yes the moment all One Direction fans have been dreading is here! Harry Styles has cut his luscious locks! O! M! G! My sources tell me he cut his hair for an upcoming movie role, yet importantly and I love this- he donated the hair to the Little Princess Trust which is a UK based charity that provides wigs for boys and girls who have lost their hair as a result of cancer treatment.

 

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have split after 33 years of marriage amidst rumors that Ozzy allegedly is having an affair with a celebrity hairdresser. I hope they can work through this, but for now they both agreed that Ozzy needed to move out and is currently living at the posh Beverly Hills Hotel.

You’ve got a decent budget, and it needs to cover a lot of areas, from delicious food and beverage to fabulous décor. How do you maximize your event dollars?

Well Sassies, rental companies such as CORT guarantee convenience, quality, and service, but is it worth the cost and does renting provide enough value? CORT has shared the top 5 reasons to rent furniture for your next event.

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

Prince Bombshell- Prince’s attorney has come forth and said that the night before Prince died he called Dr. Howard Kornfeld a specialist in California to stage a medical intervention with the singer. Dr. Kornfeld could not make it to Minnesota due to other commitments but put his son Andrew on an overnight flight to encourage Prince to enter treatment for pain management and potential addiction. Andrew arrived and went immediately to Princes estate, Paisley Park where he and two assistants found Prince unresponsive in the elevator. It was Dr. Kornfeld’s son Andrew who actually called 911.

 

Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel turned himself into the Highland Park Police Department yesterday. Following a mug shot and fingerprinting, he was released on a $1,500.00 bond. My sources are telling me he will be admonished before a Dallas judge this morning, where he is expected to plead not guilty. Manziel was indicted by a Dallas Grand Jury for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend following an evening at the Hotel Aziza in Uptown Dallas. If convicted on the assault charge, he faces a year in jail. I’ve got his mug shot #cocky at kvil.com.

 

Janet Jackson, who turns 50 later this month, is reportedly pregnant with her first child! Earlier this year she postponed her current tour, and now it all makes sense why! Her new video appropriately titled ‘Dammn Baby’ dropped last night at midnight! Congratulations Ms. Jackson!

 

I simply adore the days following a major event such as the Oscars, the Grammy’s and The Met Ball! That’s when you get all the good scoop!

One of the most tweeted things at the Met Ball was Gigi Hadid’s manicure! Well I did some research on that manicure so all you ladies could have nails just like Gigi’s! Gigi’s insane nails were embellished metallic that included hidden crystals!

Now here’s the part I need you to sit down for…the cost of her manicure was- wait for it…wait for it…- $2,000.00! At that price, I certainly would not want my crystals hidden!

 

Following the Met ball most celebs headed to the Boom Boom Room atop the Standard Hotel in downtown Manhattan! As guests’ entered they heard various tracks from Beyonce’s new album Lemonade. Katy Perry accompanied by Orlando Bloom actually wore a pin on her dress that said- “Not Becky”. So we can all scratch Katy Perry off our list of potential ‘Becky’s with the Good Hair’ mentioned in Bey’s song “Sorry”.

Later in the evening Lady Gaga surprised the crowd by singing “Hold Tight” and “Burn this House Down” while playing an electric guitar.

Everyone in LA is thinking that Caitlyn Jenner is paying tribute to Prince with the purchase of her new car- a purple Porsche 911. Caitlyn stated while she loved Prince, she actually ordered the car months ago. The street ready car can go 0 to 60 in 3.1 seconds it is actually made for the track! Looks like Caitlyn Jenner does not plan on slowing down anytime soon!

Steve Kemble Logo 2016She’s Here! John Legend and Chrissy Teigen welcomed 6 Lb, 11oz Daughter Luna Simone Stephens to the world over the weekend! If you are wondering why the last name Stephens- the answer is simple- John Legends real last name is Stephens. Chrissy known for her hysterical Tweets sent one over the weekend which said, “to everyone asking- John is healing perfectly”. I love her! Congratulations John and Chrissy!

 

A cavalcade of celebs came out for the most anticipated music festival of the year- Coachella 2016. The biggest trending moments of Coachella revolved around Taylor Swift and Rhianna! Taylor debuted a beach blond bob while attending the Gun N’ Roses concert at her first Coachella ever. Later in the afternoon she flew on her private jet to San Antonio Texas for the wedding of one of her back-up singers, then returned to Coachella later the same night- and you thought your Saturday was busy! The other big trending moment was a certain couple spotted at Coachella-that couple Rhianna and Oscar winner Leonardo Di Caprio! Oh My! Taylor Swifts boyfriend Calvin Harris promised a big superstar would appear with him during his set at Coachella and of course everyone assumed it was Taylor Swift- guess what, it was none other than Rhianna! In case you were wondering what everyone was wearing at Coachella, it was all about bikini!

 

Some good news! Prince appears to be doing fine! Reports surfaced Friday that while returning from Atlanta his private jet had to make an emergency landing due to Prince’s health. Prince stated he has a severe case of the flu, but still managed to make a public appearance on Saturday near his home in Minnesota. He did not play, but told the crowd “wait a few days before you waste any prayers”.

 

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian decided to take a helicopter tour in Iceland to celebrate Kourtney’s 37th birthday yesterday. While up in the air, they heard a horrible clanging noise, and the helicopter had to make an emergency landing! All is good! Once on the ground they discovered what was making the noise was a seat belt hanging outside the helicopter door banging on the side of the helicopter! In true Kardashian form, Kim documented the entire thing on Snapchat!

 

Something must be in the water in Hollywood,  another celeb couple has announced they are expecting a child! Olivia Wilde announced via her Instagram yesterday that she Jason Sudeikis are expecting a baby! This will be the second for the couple, their son Otis Alexander turns two this week!

 

Blake Shelton held up a cup directly up to the camera during his concert in Fort Lauderdale that said “I Drink Get Over It!”. Shelton recently filed a defamation lawsuit against In Touch magazine for its cover story saying he had hit  “rock bottom” and was going to rehab because of his drinking. In Touch has responded to the lawsuit saying it’s not defamation because HE! created the drinking image. I suspect In Touch attorney’s will be walking into court with a photo from this concert!

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

All eyes were focused on Dallas last night, well at least according to Twitter they were! Bravo’s new show in the Real Housewives franchise- The Real Housewives of Dallas premiered last night and was trending #1 on Twitter- most of the night! The ladies did not let us down! We did not see a lot of BIG hair, but more delightful to Housewives fans we did see some good ole Texas size drama!

Rob Kardashian must be feeling better, because he is 100% back to acting like a Kardashian! My sources in Hollywood are telling me he and fiancée’ Blac Chyna are shopping the possibility of a network special for their wedding! This pretty much translates to we want someone to pay for our wedding! Rob put a ring on it in the form of a 7 carat sparkler after only 10 weeks of going public with their relationship!

The MTV Movie Awards were hosted by Dwayne The Rock Johnson and Kevin Hart and Star Wars The Force Awakens took home the big prize being named Movie of the Year! Melissa McCarthy made history, becoming the first woman to receive the Comedic Genius Award. Oscar winning actress Jennifer Lawrence picked up the award for Best Hero for her role in The Hunger Games Mockingjay, Part 2. The coveted Best Kiss award went to…I love this!, Rebel Wilson and Adam Devine for their kiss in Pitch Perfect II #getaroom .

The Duchess of Cambridge almost barred all during a wardrobe malfunction in India! Kate Middleton, one of the world’s best dressed women was paying tribute to India’s war victims when a huge wind blew up and pretty much exposed her bare derriere! OH MY, Where were her royal panties? Luckily she was able to pull her white dress down quickly, and continue her royal duties. The scene was very Marilyn Monroe!

Megan Fox, a gorgeous woman indeed had jaws dropping on the red carpet at CinemaCon yesterday, in a tight figure hugging black dress! Jaws dropped not so much because of her beauty, but because there was a very obvious bump right at her tummy! Rumors are the baby daddy could be Brian Austin Green. They filed for divorce in August of 2015, yet nothing has been finalized. They have two other children together.

Madonna must have struck some type of custody deal with Guy Ritchie as it relates to custody and visitation of their 15 year son. Ritchie was seen dropping Rocco off at Madonna’s house in London this past weekend. Rocco has been living with Ritchie in London since December, after he left Madonna stating he did not want to live life with her on tour. She has fought in the court system to get him back, yet a judge pretty much told her and Ritchie to grow up and work it out between the two of them because their behavior was hurting their son’s wellbeing!

He claims that while chasing off paparazzi someone took his computers, a watch, hard drives, headphones and more. A report has been filed with LAPD. There are no suspects.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom appear to be the happiest they have ever been. Why do I say that you ask? My sources spotted them at the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’ – Disneyland – holding hands, riding rides and packing on the PDA! #andtheylivedhappilyeverafter

 Jennifer Lopez was the special guest for James Cordon’s The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke! They sang some of her biggest hits but the best part was when Cordon ask to see her phone that is filled with A-List celebrity names and numbers! Cordon then prank texted one of the names saying “I have a feeling I need to cut loose tonight, any suggestions – let me know!, J Lo, you know from the block”. In came a reply, they showed the camera and it was none other than Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio who replies back “You mean tonight BooBoo, club-wise?” Jennifer was laughing so hard that her earring fell off!

Gaga was dressed fabulously in a gold Saint Laurent mini-dress with large puffy sleeves and sky high leather platform shoes!

A large and very heavy chain fell from a production rig into the crowd below. Thankfully, the fans taken to the hospital are doing well.

When Kylie Jenner speaks, it appears Instagram listens! Kylie was the person who most vocally took on the tech giant when they said user’s feeds would change from chronological order to what THEY feel you would most like to see.The change announced earlier this month was to be effective March 28th, yet Instagram sent out a message yesterday morning saying “We’re listening – and we assure you nothing is happening to your feed right now!”

Yesterday The Obama’s hosted their last Easter Egg Roll on the White Houselawn. During the event held the Monday after Easter for 35,000 people, Idina Menzel sang the national anthem and Shaq made an appearance.

Harry Styles is furious and fuming! Someone hacked into his mother’s iCloud and got intimate pictures of him and Kendall Jenner! While they did not steal the pictures directly from him, he is upset because the photos were specifically meant for his and Kendall’s family. I guess by Harry’s reaction…we can definitely say they are indeed a couple!

Harry is also somewhat furious and fuming with ex One Directioner Zayn Malik who’s new solo album ‘Mind of Me’ drops March 25th. Harry stated he wishes Zayn would just move on and stop complaining and throwing shade about his time with the band! On the other hand Zayn’s girlfriend, supermodel Gigi Hadid, can’t sing his praises enough proudly boasting his new album is as good as Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’! Not to mention, Zayn is trending on social media due to his sexy spread in Complex magazine #heisonlyinatowel.

Reese Witherspoon celebrated the big four-oh this weekend at Warwick in Hollywood! Reese and her family arrived to the celebration in three black SUV’s and were greeted by guests which included Jennifer Aniston, Matthew McConaughey, Chelsea Handler, Kate Hudson, Chris Martin, Nicole Kidman, Robert Downey, Jr., and more. Even Taylor Swift and Keith Urban performed! Now that’s an A-List party!

EXCITING NEWS! Dolly Parton, Miley Cyrus’ Godmother, and Katy Perry will perform together at this year’s ACM Awards! The two are expected to perform ‘A Coat of Many Colors’ and ‘Jolene’. The awards will be broadcasted live on CBS from Las Vegas on April 3rd.

Madonna has won the latest round in the custody battle over her 15 year old son Rocco with ex, Guy Ritchie. The judge stated the case will move to New York from London and is scheduled for court on June 1st.

Social media blew up over the weekend with images of Ben Affleck with a tattoo covering his entire back! Upon seeing the tattoo, his estranged wife Jennifer Garner commented, “Bless his heart”, and his ex Jennifer Lopez simply said, “awful”. Ben told everyone to chill, the back tattoo is just for a movie. However, he did say he has some real tattoos in very strategic places…Oh My!

Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, Kelly Rowland, Janelle Monae, Lea Michelle, and Zendaya have all teamed up with First Lady Michelle Obama to record a song written by Diane Warren to promote female empowerment. The song is titled ‘This Is For My Girls’. Warren said the new single is like ‘We Are The World’ meets ‘Lady Marmalade’. Love that! #girlpower

Time Magazine has named the 30 Most Influential People on the Internet.  Time says the 30 were chosen based upon their global impact on social media and their overall ability to drive news. Some of those who made the list include Kim Kardashian West, Kayne West, Drake, James Corden.

Taylor Swift and her DJ boyfriend, Calvin Harris, are reportedly getting very close to walking down the aisle and the most shocking thing coming out of the wedding details is that neither feels it is necessary to sign a pre-nup. Taylor is worth an estimated 280 million and check this out, for some of his DJ gig’s, Calvin gets $400,000 a night. Friends say that they are both independently wealthy and neither would go after the others fortune.

Jo Jo, from Dallas, the next Bachelorette who was rejected by The Bachelor Ben, is speaking out and I have the scoop just for you! First and foremost, Jo Jo has said she is totally over Ben! You go girl! Secondly, she said that due to the fact that she DID fall in love with Ben on the show, she does believe in the format of the show and honestly believes that she will find love as the new Bachelorette!

Jerry Seinfeld has sold 17 of his classic cars for a grand total of $22.2 million dollars! You heard that right, 17 cars for 22.2 million! Some of the cars included a 1955 Porsche for 5.3 million and a VW Beetle for $121,000!

Gwen Stefani’s new album titled “This is What the Truth Feels Likes” IS, as we suspected, all about what she was going through while her 14 year marriage to Gavin Rossdale came to a close. She said, and I quote, “my life fell apart, my family fell apart, everything fell apart.” She went on to to say, “I have to turn this around, I will not go down like this!” And the album, which will be released tomorrow, was born!

Ariana Grande had a wardrobe malfunction on Saturday Night Live that blew up the Twitterverse! It started with host Larry David introducing her by totally botching her name! Then, as she began to sing her new single ‘Dangerous Woman’ she attempted to remove her black jacket but struggled with it. After slipping her left arm out of the sleeve, the jacket just continued to hang on her right arm throughout the entire performance while people tweeted things like – “someone show her how to wear a sweater,” and “Hey Ariana, not understanding the one arm sweater look” and a whole bunch of other things not appropriate for this column! Oh My!

Girls – you are going to LOVE this! Former One Direction member Harry Styles is set to appear on the big screen. Yes, in a movie! He has signed on to star in the World War II action thriller ‘Dunkirk’, which will also star Tom Hardy.

Madonna appears to have had yet another breakdown on stage. As I have reported she and ex Guy Ritchie are involved in an ugly custody battle over their 15 year old son, Rocco. While on stage in Australia, Madonna took a break from performing to drink tequila on stage and then unleashed lots of profanity (and more) in front of the audience.

Kendall Jenner I suspect is going to be pretty upset with what one of her besties,Selena Gomez, said! During an interview when Selena was asked about whether she is dating anyone she replied by saying that she was the only member of quote, unquote ‘Taylor’s Squad’ that is single! She said Gigi is dating someone, Taylor is dating someone, and so is Kendall. Believe it or not, for a Kardashian or Jenner, Kendall keeps pretty quiet about her dating life. But, she is definitely not single according to Selena. So, which of the men that she has been linked to recently is she dating…? Is it Chris Brown, Harry Styles, or Cristiano Renaldo? I am on the case, stay tuned!

Want to feel like a Prince? Well, you can!! A treasure trove of 95 fabulous items once owned by Prince are going on the auction block. Items include: his ex-girlfriend’s 2.2-karat diamond engagement ring with bidding starting at $100,000, Princes 1959 Gibson Guitar with bidding starting at $60,000, and lots and lots more. Just to give you an idea how closely I reviewed the list…I did find a pair of handcuffs listed #ohmy, but I did not find anywhere on the list a ‘Little Red Corvette’!

Mark Cuban was ask during his visit to South by Southwest his thoughts on the current political situation in America and if he would ever consider running for political office. He response was quote, unquote “never say never…” Good answer Mark!

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his beautiful family have landed in Washington D.C. for the first Canadian State Dinner to be held at the White House in 20 years. The dinner will be held this evening. Stealing the show thus far is Trudeau and his wife Sophia’s adorable two-year son Hadrien, high-fiving fans as he meets them!

It seems every celebrity is in a flashing mood on Instagram these days, first it was Kim Kardashian West and her nude selfie and now the rapper known as 50 Cent has been ordered to court for flashing…for flashing lots of cash that is! Curtis J. Jackson known to all of us as 50 Cent has posted a lot of pictures on Instagram recently of himself surrounded by mounds of cash – this is a problem because he filed bankruptcy in July. In one picture he is lying in bed surrounded by Benjamins. The judge estimates in this one picture alone he is surrounded by 50,000 in cash!!!

If you have been wondering where Kristen Stewarts ex and Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson has been hiding – we found him!! He has been traveling all over the globe exploring the world of fashion. Pattinson said he is actually designing and making clothes inspired by the places he travels. Additionally, he stated he is working with fashion giant Dior on some collaborative projects – where of course he is already the face of their men’s fragrance.

Who does not love country legend Loretta Lynn!? I can certainly tell you Andy Cohen loves her! Lynn appeared on Andy’s show ‘Watch What Happens Live’ in full country regalia! She wore a fabulous dress with puffy sleeves and a full skirt that was complete with turquoise layers of lace, velvet and sequins! Andy put on a cowboy hat and the two belted out a duet of a song Lynn originally recorded with Conway Twitty, ‘Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man’.

Those silly Kardashians…they always seem to stay relevant with news that literally has us shaking our heads! And now this! The late night hook-up we reported a few months ago between Kourtney Kardashian and Justin Bieber may have resulted in Kourtney being pregnant and carrying Justin’s baby…Oh My! There has to be some law, some place, somewhere, that makes it illegal for the Biebs to be a  father… right!? Her sisters Kendall and Kylie are reportedly furious not to mention her ex Scott Disick, the father of her three children. Friends say, if this is true, it would knock Scott out like Mike Tyson’s punch!

Three of Hollywood’s leading men are all wanting the rights to the potential film adaptation of the David Grann non-fiction book Killers of the Flower Moon! Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio have all expressed interest in the project that will chronicle the 1920’s mystery surrounding the suspicious deaths of several Osage Indians who were among the richest people on the planet at the time. The story follows the twist and turns of the investigation that eventually became the first major case solved by J. Edgar Hoover’s brand new FBI. That sounds amazing!

If you are not following Bette Milder on Twitter you are doing yourself a great disservice! Her most recent, and fabulous, tweet followed Kim Kardashian West posting a nude selfie of herself on Instagram, which now has over 12 million likes. The Divine Ms. M saw the photo and she tweeted, “if Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna need to swallow the camera!” What’s not to love about Bette?!

Sports Reporter and Dancing with the Stars Co-Host Erin Andrews has been awarded a settlement of $55 million in her peeping tom trial for damages sustained after a stranger secretly recorded her in the nude at the Nashville Marriott. Experts testified that close to 17 million people have now seen the video.

In other Dancing with the Stars news, the new cast was announced today and some of those putting on their dancing shoes will be football great Doug Flutie, reporter Geraldo Rivera, former OC star Mischa Barton, ex Facts of Life star Kim Fields, and Donald Trump’s ex-wife Marla Maples. The 22nd season premieres on March 21st.

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s ex nanny is pregnant! Stefani split from Rossdale after she discovered he had a three year affair with the nanny. She has tagged her current boyfriend in the announcement photos on Facebook, so we are to presume he is the father.

Taylor Swift and DJ Calvin Harris celebrated their one year anniversary Sunday, as music’s most adorable couple! Harris orchestrated their anniversary celebration and gave Taylor a seemingly handmade cake and a very thoughtful gift! He also gave her a gold heart-shaped locket engraved with the date 3-6-2015. Harris is known for not being a flashy gift giver and knows Taylor very much favors gifts that are more sentimental.

Actress, model and most importantly Mesquite, Texas native Jerry Hall married billionaire Rupert Murdoch in London over the weekend. Hall is the ex of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger (they have four children together). This is the fourth marriage for the 84 year old Murdoch and technically the first for the 59 year old Hall since her Hindu ceremony in Bali to Jagger was later declared invalid by a British court. Hall wore a custom made gown by British designer Vivienne Westwood.

Johnny Manziel continues to exhibit behavior that makes one think he could care less that he has a domestic violence case before the Dallas Grand Jury! Over the weekend, he was spotted at nightclub hot spot 1 Oak in Las Vegas well after midnight with none other than notorious party boy Scott Disick, who is Kourtney Kardashians ex! #doubletrouble

Super model Kendall Jenner has been extended a personal invitation by a gentleman many consider the hottest hunk on the planet! Real Madrid Soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo, whose pictures I have just for you at kvil.com, has personally invited Kendall, who is currently modeling in Europe, to watch him play in a game. Finally a couple hotter than Quarterback Tom Brady and super model Gisele Bundchen!

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are not hiding their relationship any longer! I first reported spotting the couple at various Golden Globes after parties in January. This week they were spotted in Maui, where a bikini clad Perry and shirtless Bloom looked very much in love on the beach! Their romantic trip to the Aloha state did not end there as Bloom followed Perry back to New York for a Hilary Clinton Fundraiser last night at Radio City Music Hall. Perry performed with Elton John at the event.

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will attend this year’s South by Southwest Festival in Austin. This is the first time a sitting President and First Lady have attended!

Ooops, she did it again! Britney Spears graces the centennial issue of V magazine and is almost unrecognizable in a racy sheer bodysuit, dramatic eye make-up and high cheekbones! She looks amazing! Here’s a fun fact: she also graced the magazine’s first cover 99 issues ago! In the article Britney talks about her upcoming ninth studio album stating that she is proud of it, it’s different and she feels it’s her best work ever! She teased us on the release date saying it could be two months or it could be a year. She just wants it done right!

Madonna and ex Guy Ritchie headed back to court Wednesday over the custody of their 15 year old son Rocco. Since their divorce in 2008, the two have never really gotten along and have very different views on the parenting. My sources say Madonna is a very strict parent, while Guy is very laid-back. Rocco, who has lived in London with Ritchie since December, had a voice in court represented by an attorney. His attorney stated this entire situation was having a negative effect on him. The judge scolded both parents, saying they are the reason for the negative effect since they cannot come up with a reasonable solution. The judge went on to say he is fine with the school Rocco is attending in London and will not force him to move back to New York with Madonna.

Oprah Winfrey has put 200 personal pieces from luxury designers including Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana, Alexander McQueen and more for sale on eBay. You can purchase the items with a starting bid of only 99 cents. All the items were worn on her show or for covers of her magazine. My favorite item is the Stetson cowboy hat she worn in 2009 when she filmed her road trip with BFF Gayle King. All proceeds will go to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. The boarding school is for academically gifted girls from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The estate of Michael Jackson is suing kingofpop.com, a website that sells gourmet popcorn. The Jackson estate’s attorney claimed they are benefitting off the Jackson name. The popcorn maker stated that the word pop is a nickname for popcorn products. The attorney fired back with, “wrong, that is the nickname for a soda not popcorn!”

Beyoncé’s causal style has been turning heads at the Brooklyn Nets games! She walked into the arena and the crowd gasp when they saw her in a t-shirt! Well I did some research and that was not just any t-shirt, but a Gucci T with an embroidered bird that sells for $795! That is one single t-shirt, not a lifetime supply of t-shirts and certainly sounds a lot more expensive than the t-shirts Mark Cuban wears at the Mavericks games. She accessorized with a Gucci Dionysus leather handle bag in red, black and green that you too can own for $3,500.

Hooray for Hollywood! Two days later and the world is still buzzing about the88th Annual Academy Awards hosted by Chris Rock! I’ve got the buzz worthy scoop you may not know!

When Leo DiCaprio won Best Actor for the Revenant, it became the most tweeted about moment in Oscar history with 440,000 tweets per minute. This shattered Ellen’s star studded selfie, which had 225,000 tweets per minute!!

It finally happened! After four months of dating, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party! Everyone thought it would happen at the Grammys, but looks like they saved it for the most glamorous night in Tinsel Town!

Ooooh, did I get some juicy scoop for you from inside the Vanity Fair Oscar Party! This party is the most exclusive of all the Oscar parties! Guests have to go through three security check-points just to get in the door. Once inside, I don’t care how big of a celebrity you are, these are the rules: You can only stay for 1 hour, no tweeting, no picture taking and no taking notes! Well my source told me that Jennifer Garner, who is on the cover this month, spent the majority of her one hour inside the party with ex-Ben Affleck! Diane Warren, who was nominated with Lady Gaga for an Oscar for the song they wrote together, was very sad and could not believe she has now lost 8 times! #susanlucci Sam Smithended up taking home the gold statue for the theme song from the latest James Bond movie. And to no surprise, the celebrity that everyone wanted to talk to at the party was….drum roll… Taylor Swift, who looked gorgeous in a plunging thigh high split couture gown by Alexandre Vauthier.

Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow could be set to receive more gold! Paltrow filed for divorce from Coldplay front man Chris Martin on April 20, 2015. He was then served with legal documents on May 18, 2015. Martin never responded to the papers, which means that Paltrow is now eligible to get a default judgement, which basically means she can get everything she has asked for! My sources in Hollywood tell me that both of their business managers are still trying to sort out the couple’s vast financial holdings and earnings.

FOX News Sportscaster and Dancing With the Stars Co-Host Erin Andrews is suing hotel giant Marriott International for $75 million. The high profile sportscaster is suing them for not protecting her safety and emotional distress while she was traveling as a ESPN Sportscaster. She claims the hotel allowed a stalker to request to stay in the adjoining hotel room where he removed the peep hole in her room to film her in 3 different cities #creepy. The case is expected to last two weeks before a jury makes a decision.

Celine Dion received a standing ovation and roaring applause after returning to the stage at The Colosseum for this first time since the death of her husband René Angélil. Dion opened her show with a montage of family photos and René’s TV appearances.  She told the audience, “I understood my career was in a way his masterpiece, his song, his symphony. The idea of leaving it unfinished would have hurt him terribly. I realized that if he left us, I would have to continue without him.”

Kayne West went on another Twitter rant which included a subtle reference to Taylor Swift! He sent a tweet that said,  “I made ‘Dark Fantasy’ and ‘Watch the Throne’ in one year and wasn’t nominated for either and you know who has 2 albums of the year.” Dear Kayne, I guess people liked “you know whose” albums! That’s All!

Loyola University in Chicago has announced that Kesha is no longer able to perform this Friday due to personal reasons related to her legal battle with music producer Dr. Luke. Kesha alleges that Dr. Luke raped her, to which he has denied all claims. The university stated that they support her decision to cancel the concert and wish her the best.

Last night the Brit Awards were held in London! Annie Lennox and actor Gary Oldman took part in a tribute to David Bowie, who died January 10th after his battle with cancer. Lorde performed a musical tribute, which Bowie’s son thought was beautiful and amazing. I am sure Lorde was extremely nervous after Lady Gaga’s tribute at the Grammys, which everyone loved and applauded, while his son sent a series of tweets expressing bewilderment.

The Academy Awards has revealed the stage designs for this Sunday’s Oscars, which will be hosted by Chris Rock. The designs are reflective of the 1970’s Hollywood glam and feature 200,000 Swarovski crystals, in addition to a massive 20,000 pound crystal focal point!

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

Taylor Swift and her boyfriend DJ Calvin Harris are still a couple! The rumor that they had broken up lit up social media after she was with her BFF Selena Gomezat the Grammys. Taylor asked Selena to be her plus one so that she could send a very powerful message to her fans. Earlier in the week, Kayne West dissed Taylor in his new song saying HE made HER famous, #lol. Taylor wanted to send a message of empowerment to her female fans by showing that she can stand alone in the face of bullies like Kayne West and that she doesn’t need a man to protect her or define who she is! Calvin did join her later at the Republic Records After Party, held at Hyde, where they partied with Lorde and Ellie Goulding!

Speaking of Kayne, he recently sent out a tweet claiming he is $53 million in debt and desperately needed money! Guess who responded to his plea, Pizza Hut! They sent Kayne a tweet saying, “stop telling everyone you need dough and try kneading some dough! You can start tomorrow at 9AM, please call us about your job application.” Gotta love Pizza Hut!

The Weekend celebrated his Grammy wins at a GQ Magazine party, hosted in his honor, at a private residence in Beverly Hills. Well, the LAPD shut down the party for noise complaints. I will give you one guess as to who was at the party and you tell me if you are surprised it was shut down. Here’s your hint- HIS nickname is the Biebs!

C.J. the German Shorthaired Pointer won Best in Show at the 140th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show held at Madison Square Garden in New York! Over 3,000 dogs competed for the title. In the history of the show, C.J. is only the third German Shorthaired Pointer to win the title!

Gwen Stefani has admitted her new song ‘Make Me Love You,’ which she performed at the Grammys, is indeed about the new man in her life Blake Shelton. She also revealed that during the roller skating scene in the performance, it was not she who fell, but her stunt double! Gwen insisted she is a good roller skater, but due to the timing of the production number, she could not perform in that particular scene. I am officially issuing a challenge! I want to see Gwen roller skate on video and I want a solo performance, not some cheesy couples skate with Blake!

Jennifer Garner is feeling better than she has felt in a long time. She is now revealing that her split from Ben Affleck after 10 years of marriage was emotionally draining. Ben had been living in the guest house of their Beverly Hills estate for the sake of the children, but has moved out due to the toll this was taking on Jennifer. Recently they have been seen out in LA with their children, sparking rumors that they are getting back together. Representatives for the two claim that when they are out, they are simply talking about school parties and pizza nights and are proceeding forward with the divorce.

 Despite rumors, Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast member Scott Disick will not appear on the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars. Show officials said they did ask the father of three, who split from Kourtney Kardashian last summer, to be on the show this year. However, negotiations stalled because he insisted on being paid $500,000!

Last night the Grammys were handed out at a ceremony in Los Angeles. Lady Gaga’s beautiful tribute to David Bowie stole the show and earned her a standing ovation after performing nine Bowie Classics in full Bowie Drag! Taylor Swift, who looked amazing in a color blocked Versace crop top and skirt and new do, won Album of the Year for 1989 and became the first female solo artist in history to win the award twice! In her acceptance speech, she politely threw shade a Kayne West claiming his new song released earlier this week made her famous! Kendrick Lamar picked up five awards and performed what many are calling the night’s most memorable performance, a medley of To Pimp a Butterfly tracks, with an actual bonfire on stage! Adele’s eagerly awaited return to the Grammy stage was marred by horrible sound issues, which were not her fault. I am sure there is a sound engineer in LA looking for a new job this morning! Adele taking all in stride sent a tweet at the end of the evening in which she said, “because of this show, I am treating myself to an In-N-Out burger.” You go girl!

As much as the Grammy’s are about music, they are also about parties! Clive Davis held his annual star-studded Grammy event at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. I’m guessing there was a shortage of seats because Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani ended up sharing one. She was sitting on his lap with her shoes off pretty much all night! #packingonthepda! It was definitely a couples night. Also spotted at the event were Russell Wilson and Ciara, John Legend and an adorably pregnant Chrissy Teigan. One Direction band member Harry Styles and former One Direction band member Zayn Malik (with pink hair!) were both in the same room at the same party! #awkward I’ve got all the party pics at kvil.com

Also over Grammys weekend, Apple executive, Interscope Records Founder and American Idol Mentor Jimmy Iovine married British model Liberty Ross! I bet you’re thinking the name Liberty Ross sounds familiar. You might remember when Liberty Ross divorced her husband, director Rupert Sanders, after 10 years of marriage because photos surfaced of him and Kristen Stewart kissing and hugging during the filming of Snow White and Huntsman. Iovine and Ross got married on the beach in Malibu and then held their reception at the Beverly Hills estate of David Geffen. The reception was attended by Ellen and Portia, Oprah, Tom Hanks, Pharrell, Eminem, Sir Paul McCartney, Alicia Keys and more! And check this out, performing for the guests was Mary J. Blige, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett! Now that’s a wedding reception!

The BAFTA’s (the British Oscars) were held at the Royal Albert Hall in London and as expected, Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant) and Brie Larson (Room) took home acting honors. They are on their way to Oscar gold! The Revenant was named Best Picture. The Oscars will be broadcasted live on ABC, Sunday February 28th.

Fashion’s First Family, The Beckham’s were out in full force for the finale of New York Fashion Week! David, and children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and adorable four year old Harper were all seated in the front row next to Vogue’s Anna Wintour for the debut of Victoria’s latest collection (Victoria Beckham) at the posh Cipriani 25 Broadway in New York.

Tyra Banks posted the first pic of her son York! She posted the image on Instagram this past Valentine’s Day with the caption, “this is the happiest Valentine’s Day of my life.” She and boyfriend Erik Asla announced the birth of their son via a surrogate in January.

Taraji P Henson, Amy Adams, January Jones and former Dallas Cowboy  Emmitt Smith and his gorgeous wife Pat attended the NFL Honors event!

At the CBS Radio ‘The Night Before’ event- iconic Bay Area metal band- Metallic WOWED the crowd!

But probably the biggest celebrity of all-attending the Maxim, Sports Illustrated, and Playboy parties was Jiff, the cutest Pomeranian on the Planet. The puffy, fluffy 4 year old social media superstar with 2.1 million Instagram Followers was everywhere!

 

It’s getting close to Oscar time!! You always know when the Academy Awards are just around the corner when it’s time for the annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon and ‘Class Photo’! The 2016 event was held Monday at the Beverly Hilton and was attended by virtually every nominee!!

 

Oprah decided she need another fabulous house, and if you are Oprah- you get exactly what you want! She just purchased a prized property in Montecitofor 28 million dollars! ! I bet you are thinking- wait doesn’t she already own a house in Montecito- yes she does! She already has a 23,000 square foot house valued at $90 million dollars. Her new house has 23 acres, 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, stables, and pond filled with fish, #agirlsgotta eat! Her neighbors include Ellen, Drew Barrymore, and Jeff Bridges. It appears that investment she made into Weight Watchers is really paying off! #iwanttobeadoptedbyoprah

 

Heritage Auction house in Dallas has just put a 4 inch chunk of John Lennon’s hair on the auction block and the bidding is already over $12,000.00! I always thought Yoko was the one who needed a haircut! A hair stylist cut his hair before his role in the 1967 movie ‘How I Won the War!’ Lennon’s items always seem to fetch big dollars. His 1965 Rolls Royce sold for 2.23 million dollars and the handwritten lyrics to ‘All You Need Is Love’, sold for 1.25 million.

It’s almost time Super for Bowl 50! The Super Bowl has announced that Lady Gaga will sing the National Anthem! Now THAT! I am excited about!

In other Gaga news it has been announced she will be doing a David Bowie tribute at the Grammy’s! That should be fabulous!

The Oscars have made a huge announcement- NO VAPING will be allowed during the Academy Awards ceremony in the famed Hollywood Dolby Theatre. It appears the Oscar producers were watching last weekends SAG Awards in which Golden Globe and SAG winner, AND Oscar front runner Leonardo DiCaprio was caught vaping on screen from his seat during the ceremony! The American Lung Association, also issued a harsh statement about the incident! The Oscars have said that Leo is more than welcome to vape in one of the outdoor smoking area’s!

In the 22nd Annual Vanity Fair Hollywood issue Jane Fonda reveals her girl crush, and it’s Jennifer Lawrence! Fonda, 78 years young, says she is “mesmerized” by the 25-year-old Oscar winner! She goes on to say that she feels JLaw is “the real deal” and jokingly said she was actually a bit jealous when Amy Schumer and Jennifer called themselves BFF’s! In the article Fonda goes on to talk about how she has skinny dipped with everyone from Greta Garbo to Michael Jackson! Oh My!

Here’s one for the “I did not see this coming” file…Hollywood actress Jennifer Garner was stopped in midtown Manhattan by New York’s finest– yes the NYPD! WHOA! You won’t believe why…simply because the officers wanted a selfie with her! Gotta love it!

Hooooray for Hollywood! The Hollywood award season continues! The Screen Actors Guild Awards were held this weekend! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Carol Burnett. These two continue to be Awards Show Gold! Tina said, “Carol Burnett has deserved every award because comedy is harder than drama! Because comedic actors have to do everything dramatic actors have to do, but faster, and often with a chimp!” Then Poehler chimed in saying, “Let’s all calm down about Leonardo DiCaprio and his work in The Revenant- so you slept in a horse and ate bison liver, big whoop! Carol would have slept in that horse, worn it, done a song and dance number and made a much funnier face after eating something so disgusting!”

Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant and Brie Larson, Room continued their march for Oscar Gold in the Best Actor and Actress category!

Idris Elba made history at SAGs by picking up two trophies – the first male actor to ever do this! He won for his role in Beast of No Nation and the Mini-series Luther! I still can’t believe he was snubbed by the Oscars!

Social media blew up when Susan Sarandon walked on stage in a white tux jacket with only a black bra! Many felt it was inappropriate for her to be dressed like this while presenting the In Memoriam portion of the program. Personally, if I looked like that pushing 70, I would have rocked that outfit too!

This will sound like the start of a joke…So, Justin Bieber walks into a bar with his bodyguard and orders a drink. It was a bar he had never been to, but was on the way to his recording studio. Justin looks around and realizes he is in a gay bar, specifically Club Cobra in West Hollywood! Ooops! He finished his drink, paid his tab and left! Three Letters- L-O-L!

One of the most successful super models of all time, Cindy Crawford says she will no longer model after she turns the big 5-0! this month! Dear Cindy, you look fabulous! She said, “I cannot continue to reinvent myself as a model.” Crawford said she will continue to run her business empire which includes design, furniture, cosmetics and more.

Tyra Banks took to social media to announce she is a MOM! She and boyfriend Norwegian photographer Erik Asla welcomed their son York Banks Asla via gestational surrogate. In other baby news, One Direction band member Louis Tomlinson is singing lullabies as he and his ex-Briana Jungwirth welcomed their son Freddie.

It’s almost time for the 50th annual Super Bowl with the Denver Panthers and Carolina Bronco’s and that means Super Bowl commercials! RAH! RAH! SIS BOOM BAH! A 30 second commercial is estimated to cost 5 million dollars! I have found out we are going to see Steven Tyler in a Skittles commercial, soccer superstar Amy Wambach for Mini Cooper, Liam Neeson for LG Electronics, Christopher Walken for KIA, and the one I am most excited about Amy Schumer and Seth Rogan for Bud Light! In addition you can expect lots of candy bars, movie stars and fancy cars!

This week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills played out in true Housewives Fashion -whether it’s a sisters death, Lyme disease, addition or in this case a housewives mention in another housewives book, the ladies do know how to capitalize on a tragedy! Taking the center ring last were Kathryn Edwards and Faye Resnick! Faye was invited to a BBQ basically so these two could spar regardless of Kyle Richards saying she invites her to “everything”, NOT! The two have issues regarding Faye mentioning Kathryn in her book about her best friend Nicole Brown Simpsons murder. Specifically that Edward’s ex-husband Marcus Allen cheated on Kathryn with Nicole. Nicole is of course the slain former wife of O.J. Simpson.  In the end Resnick tells Kathryn she never meant anything “pejorative” toward Edwards, and asked if Kathryn felt better, she said she did. I am confident this is not the end of this!

Speaking of O.J. Simpson, he won’t be watching Cuba Gooding, Jr. play him in the February 2 premiere of “The People vs. O.J. Simpson America Crime Story”. Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada DOES allow it’s inmates to watch TV in their cells and community rooms, however the FX channel which is airing the Ryan Murphy produced series is not offered.  I guess it’s really no big deal, O.J. already knows how it ends!

Move over Man Bun, it’s now all about the Man Braid! Victoria and David son’s Brooklyn Beckham was seen sporting a French braid and social media went into a frenzy with news about this new hairstyle for men!

Kim Kardashian fans have been in an uproar on social media insisting she has had a nose job! Kim’s sister Kourtney posted a pic on Instagram of her and Kim in black body suits! The purpose of the picture was to show off the two mom’s banging bod’s, but instead it has ended up causing a global debate as to whether Kim did or did not have a nose job! I just don’t nose! Kim went on to say she has lost 30 pounds (she looks great) and has 40 more pounds to go.  She is wanting to lose the 60 pounds she gained during her pregnancy with Saint. She credits her weight loss to Atkins, which she also used after the birth of North.

Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner fresh off a vacay in St. Bart’s introduced their parents to each other at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. Kendall’s mom Kris and Harry’s stepdad Robin were there. Harry also revealed to my sources he will be having his birthday party in LA on February 1, but does not expect his former One Direction band mates to cross the pond for the celebration…but I thought they were all getting along…hmmmmm!

While being interviewed at the Sundance Film Festival, talk show host and star of ‘Chelsea Does’ Chelsea Handler was asked who her worst interview guest was of all time. She stated Justin Bieber! She said he was very “flirty” and due to their age difference he made her feel like a “child molester”. She went on to say, “I don’t care about him and I really can’t pretend I do”. OUCH!

As I reported earlier, Mariah Carey is now engaged (#35caratring) to Australian businessman James Packer, yet I have found just one little issue- neither Carey or Packer are divorced! Carey is still wrangling over final issues with ex-Nick Cannon and Packer is yet to be divorced from his wife Erica even though they separated in 2013. Erica has definitely moved on, she is now dating SEAL. Appears both James and Erica like music! And check this out, in true Mariah fashion, she and Parker just rented an 18,000 square foot home in Calabasas (Kardashian land!) for $250,000.00 a month! WOWZA!!!

Jennifer Lopez opened her Las Vegas show last night and I was honored to be invited! I had the time of my life seated with Ryan Seacrest, Leah Rimini, Hota Kotb, Justin Bieber and a hilarious Rebel Wilson!!! Seated next to me was Derek Hough and Kelly Osbourne! The show was amazing and was a non-stop, high energy 2 hours of fabulousness!!

In case you missed this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I encourage you to take the time to watch! We were introduced to a new character Kathryn Edwards and OH MY! is she going to bring the drama!!! In next week’s episode I expect a big clash with Faye Resnick! #mustsee

The American Express slogan- ‘Don’t Leave Home Without It’ does NOT apply to Tori Spelling! They have basically told her she will leave home without it, I mean she can take it- but NOT! use it! American Express has filed suit against Spelling for non-payment of $37,981.97. The amount has been outstanding since last summer. AMEX said she did attempt to make one payment for $1,070.00. And in case you are wondering this is the same Tori Spelling who is millionaire Candy Spellings daughter. Candy is denying there are any issues with AMEX! Hmmmmmm! #moderndaypoorlittlerichgirl.

Kris Jenner told Maria Shriver some exclusive news and I simply must share with you! She admitted to Maria that some of the images her daughters post are “cringeworthy”. She went on to say,  “for example, the picture Kim posted with her booty and the martini glass”. Dear Kris, that was a champagne flute, yet what you are thinking about is probably the eight martini’s you had when you saw the photo! She goes onto to explain to Maria why she is more of a friend to the girls than a mother because she wants them to take care of her when she is old and she is afraid if she is nasty they won’t!

Ooooh and speaking of the Kardashians, guess who Kourtney’s ex and baby daddy Scott Disick is now bff’s with…you won’t believe!! Chris Brown! Yes, THAT! Chris Brown…you read that right! Oh My!

It has been 28 years since Pee Wees last cinematic adventure! But guess what?! He is coming back and will debut his new TV streaming movie Pee Wee’s Big Holiday at South by Southwest in Austin! Following the premiere, the show will debut for you to see on Netflix on March 18!

This film even stars Mr. Sophia Verga, Joe Manganiello…you know from Magic Mike. There is no secret word in this Pee Wee adventure, but I have seen it and let me tell you a secret- it’s Fabulous!

Awards season continues! The Critics Choice Awards were handed out in Santa Monica and Oscar front runners Bri Larson/Room, Leonardo DiCaprio/ The Revenant, and Sylvester Stallone/ Creed all picked up statues as they continue their march to Oscar gold! Oscar nominee Leonard DiCaprio was not in Santa Monica, because of The Revenant premiere in Rome. And where was Leo following the premiere? Spotted with Rihanna at a club in Paris!

Madonna stopped in Louisville, Kentucky, on her Rebel Hearts Tour and appears have to tried a little bit of moonshine! She arrived on stage three hours late, and slurred a lot of words as she trash talked Kentuckians in a hillbilly accent! Some fans screamed back obsentities! OH MY! No one should ever scream at Madge! Madonna later tweeted “Working on my stand up, good practice thank you Louisville!”

BREAKING NEWS – Justin Bieber has gone back to the gym! How do I know this? because I saw a picture of him after his workout in nothing but a towel! He posted a picture commenting on the fact that his hair is now purple and that he has gone back to the gym! Warning- before you click on the picture- it’s a pretty big towel!

Miley Cyrus claims she is now living in the world of a fairy tale! She stated (while wearing the engagement ring ex Liam Hemsworth gave her for their previous engagement-trust me, I am trying to find out if this means it’s back on!) that her rekindled romance with ex hottie over New Year’s in his native Austraila proves that they are quote/unquote “soulmates”.  She stated everything happens for a reason, including their 2013 breakup. She feels if they had not broken up, they would not be back together today. Well actually Miley had you not broken up, you would be together now, just sayin’! I mean I am happy for you, but you would be together! I am not sure what fairy tales she was read as kid, but I don’t remember any mentioning a U-Haul, yet that was what hauled her stuff over to Liam’s over the weekend! Appears she has moved back in!

If you were wondering if Beyonce really is performing with Coldplay at the Super Bowl– SHE IS!!! My sources saw and her dancers rehearsing on the campus of USC!

The Oscars nominees were announced this morning from Beverly Hills, California!! The Revenant leads the pack with 12 nominations and its star Leonardo DiCaprio received a nomination and many predict this is his year to take home the golden statue! Fan favorite Sylvester Stallone also received a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his work in the film Creed. The Oscars, hosted by Chris Rock, will be held February 28 from Los Angeles!

Backstreet Boy Nick Carter is behind bars! The boy band member was arrested last night at the Hogs Breath Saloon in Key West for a “scuffle”. He was hauled out of the bar in cuffs and taken to the slammer where he is being held without bail.

This happen on the same day MORE rumors of a Backstreet Boy/Spice Girls Reunion Tour surfaced. Victoria Beckham stated again- she will not participate, because her concentration now is on her “family and fashion business”…her concentration is actually on David Beckham and that is 100% understandable! And don’t forget Scary Spice Mel B has always said she won’t participate unless everyone participates.

Nicky Hilton is pregnant! Yes, you heard that right- Paris Hilton is going to be an aunt! Nicky and new hubby James Rothschild announced they are going to welcome their first child into the world. Hilton and Rothschild merged…I mean married last July in a lavish ceremony in London at Kenningston Palace, the former home of Princess Diana. The Rothschild’s are of course one of the wealthiest families in the world, which will make this one of the wealthiest babies in the world, which will make Paris Hilton one of the wealthiest aunts in the world!

Khloe Kardashian confirmed to my sources yesterday that her marriage to Lamar Odom only exist now for “technical” reasons, while Lamar works through his medical issues. She went onto to say she is concentrating now on her new show ‘Kocktails with Khloe’ is set to debut on January 20. The big question on everyone’s mind is will Saint West make his debut on the show? You will remember North West made her debut on Kris Jenner’s now cancelled talk show.

Katy Perry appears to be feeling a ‘Fireworks’ kind of emotion! My sources saw Perry at the Harvey Weinstein Golden Globes after party being “extremely flirty” with Orlando Bloom! I am hearing sparks flew when Orlando would lean in to whisper into her ear, and touch the small of her back! OH MY! Remember it was just two weeks ago that Perry was spotted with her ex John Mayer at the Hollywood hot spot The Nice Guy in LA. #busygirl. Lady Gaga stumbled out of the same Weinstein event, appearing as if she had celebrated her Golden Globes win in a glorious way! She almost took a huge stumble as she left the party but was caught on either side by two monstrous bodyguards! She survived and oh so importantly- her platinum blond Marilyn Monroe-esque wig stayed completely in-tact! WHEW!

Jared Leto I am sure probably wishes he had never trash talked Taylor Swift! Leto has filed a lawsuit against TMZ for copyright infringement. Well now TMZ and Warner Bros. (the parent company of TMZ) have filed suit against the videographer who sold them the video. They are claiming he misled them as it regards ownership of the video. You will recall that Leto apologized effusively to Swift on social media following the release of the contents of the video by TMZ. In the video he actually compliments the singer before making some off-color remarks. This lawsuit puts Warner Bros. in a precarious situation as Leto is among the stars in the upcoming DC Comics blockbuster ‘Suicide Squad’ which will be distributed by Warner Bros. I am sure these lawsuits are intense, but I would suggest Leto, TMZ and Warner Bros. all take cover if Swift decides to write a hit song about the whole ordeal!

The Playboy Mansion is for sale! The 29 room Holmby Hills estate known for its legendary parties (and ‘Grotto’, ewwwww! #theresnotenoughchlorine) comes complete with three zoo and aviary buildings, a koi pond, citrus orchard, tennis and basketball courts, swimming pool, wine cellar, screening room, game room and are you ready for this…the ‘Playboy’ himself Hugh Hefner! You read that right-any buyer must agree to the terms that Hugh Hefner is allowed to live on the grounds of the estate until his death! Personally, I think it sounds like the perfect love nest for Kim and Kayne!

R.I.P. David Bowie. Your music will live on forever! #legend

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

The Awards Season has officially kicked off in Hollywood with the People’s Choice Awards! Big winners included Britney Spears, Nicki Minaji, Selena Gomez, Johnny Depp, Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, Chris Hemsworth and more! During the show, while the ladies of The Talk were accepting their award, someone stormed the stage! They were quickly removed yet not before Sharon Osbourne literally kicked the person not once, but twice! Oh My! #truestory

Rob Kardashian was hospitalized over the holidays with Diabetic Ketoacidosis, which is Type 2 diabetes. He has now been offered a $100,000.00 plus endorsement plan from Five Hour Diabetic- which designs specialized meal plans for people with Type 2 diabetes. The offer, if he accepts (or should I say if Momager Kris Jenner accepts), would have him as the face of the brand on social media and advertising, plus a lifetime membership of meal plans and medical consultations. Wishing him all the best and a HEATLTHY new year!

Ooooh! this could be so good!! Selena Gomez is scheduled to perform on Saturday Night Live on January 23rd! Cast member Kate McKinnon who plays Justin Bieber in hilarious skits on the show, is requesting she introduced Selena’s performance as Bieber! Dear Loren Michaels, PLEASE! make this happen!!!

Bristol Palin gave birth to son Sailor three weeks ago, and we may now find out who the ‘real’ baby daddy is! Dakota Meyer claims he is the biological father and is requesting a paternal test to prove it. Additionally, he is seeking joint legal and physical custody and child support. He claims the two split three months after conception. #bewareofgrandmasarah

Kirstie Alley has done it again! The Yo-Yo dieter this time has shed 50 pounds, and she looks gorgeous! Kirstie did this by once again partnering and using the Jenny Craig plan. She debuts  her new self in a television commercial shot on a faux Cheers set. The funny commercial also features some of her former famous co-stars from the popular hit show!

The Bachelor premiered last night on ABC, and I thought to myself they could have saved money on the limousine they traditionally arrive in to meet the seasons current bachelor, Ben, and just had all 28 contestants come out of a clown car! The contestants included a chicken enthusiast, a woman wearing a unicorn mask, a dentist wearing a large paper rose, a woman with a live mini-horse, Becca the virgin from Chris’ season, and a set of twins! (#redrum) The scariest thought I had while watching the show is…all these women will be voting for the next President!

Kim Kardashian West has put calm in the world by posting a much anticipated glimpse of her and Kayne’s newborn (December 5) son, Saint West on her Instagram. The beautiful image shows Saint’s tiny hand wrapped around his sister North’s finger. Kim captioned the photo “He’s my best friend”. Now, everyone can rest easy, we have seen that there really is a child! Thank you Kim, now we can all get back to work on world peace!

Miley Cyrus was spotted over the New Year’s holiday, not on a ‘Wrecking Ball’ but cuddling and kissing ex Liam Hemsworth!  Liam, his brother Chris and their family along with Miley celebrated in Australia at a music festival close to the hometown of the Hemsworth brothers. No word on whether they are rekindling their relationship which ended two years ago, but I for one liked them as a couple and wish them all the best!

Love was definitely in the air over the holidays for others as well! Kendall Jenner was spotted partying with Harry Styles on a yacht in St. Bart’s, Justin Bieber and model Hailey Baldwin rang in the New Year in the Caribbean with his family, ‘Lord’ (his term!) Scott Disick was seen hooking up with model Lina Sandberg. Not sure if this was a revenge date against his ex-Kourtney Kardashian who denies dating but was spotted leaving the Biebs hotel in the wee hours of the morning. This hotel escapade by Kendall’s sister was of course after Justin dated Selena Gomez who yesterday shut down an interview when she was ask about Justin and prior to his dating Hailey! Whew! I had to read that twice myself! #justinsrevolvingdoor

Trend Alert! 2016 Event Design Trends Are Here!

Posted in: Uncategorized

Happy New Year Sassies!! I hope you all had safe and fabulous New Year’s celebration…but, it’s time to get to business. It’s time to put some sass into your 2016 events and our good friends at CORT are here to give us the details on this year’s hottest event design trends.

Technology is going to be a huge part of events next year and planners are going to be challenged to design event spaces that incorporate it without sacrificing fabulous aesthetics. Facilitating and encouraging engagement by providing easy access to information will allow your guests to focus on learning and networking. What is the best way to keep your guests connected? POWER!

Keeping your guests connected requires battery power and plenty of charging areas. So why not design a fabulous charging lounge with CORT’s NEW Powered Collection? With selections from powered sofas to powered endless, modular pieces…you literally have a solution for EVERY design space! How fabulous! CORT’s expanded powered furnishings collection gives planners options to seamlessly incorporate charging into their event space without sacrificing any design!

ECL8TW_EndlessPoweredClosedCircle EC6P6B Endless Powered Serpentine

Another fabulous trend for 2016 is the revival of Danish Modern designs! These fierce, yet simplistic forms, coupled with quality craftsmanship, and warm organic qualities such as wood grain are rich, enduring, and fabulous! Combining organic elements like greenery and softer color palettes will help ground your event and create a sense of calm while still delivering a powerful punch! Pantone’s Spring 2016 color palette emphasizes relaxation, but also a sense of relaxation and exploration which reflects the beauty of natural resources. Couldn’t we all use a bit more relaxation in our lives? Let’s make it happen with color and design in 2016!

CORT has introduced several new collections for 2016 that work perfectly with this trend including the new Danish Modern inspired Larson sofa and chair, which features a walnut wood frame base and comfortable white vinyl seats. Modern minimalism and mid-century silhouettes are still red hot and the Scandinavian influence of CORT’s new Wagner chair with soft cream colored fur upholstery and rounded walnut legs keep this trend fresh and exciting!

Larson Sofa and Chair

Now, this next new CORT piece has me VERY excited. It’s perfect to add a dose of class and sass to an event! The new CORT Dome chair, a French inspired piece, is a fabulous example of a piece that adds an element of surprise that your guests will talk about and remember!

Dome Chair Wagner Chair

Now remember Sassies, CORT’s complete collection includes a range of other high end modern furnishings that can be used to create fabulous designs. To learn more, visit www.cortevents.com.

Cheers to a new year Sassies! Let’s make it fabulous!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year Sassy Readers! We will return on January 5, 2016, with all the latest and hottest Hollywood Gossip!

Christina Aguilera seems to be in the holiday spirit-S!!! My sources in LA told me Christina arrived at Seth MacFarlane’s over the top Christmas party in Beverly Hills (at his home in a tent on the tennis court) in 6 inch custom Louboutins which she “wobbled” in all night. At one point during the evening Seth was singing Sinatra tunes (yes he can sing, and is actually nominated for a Grammy) with a 50 piece orchestra behind him and ask Christina to join him. She refused, not once but 5 times! Guests’ at the party stated she “was a mess”, and “the reason she did not get up is because she was wasted”. As she was leaving the party my source told me she literally almost fell into the Christmas tree! OOPS!!! #grinchmusthavespikedherdrink

David Foster is speaking out regarding his divorce from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Yolanda Foster. The two who married in 2011 did have a pre-nup but David says contrary to reports that even after she moved out over a year ago he continued to pay for Yolanda’s Lyme disease treatments and that when he sold his home in Malibu for $27 million he gave her a “big chunk”. Yolanda just recently purchased a $5 million house in the ultra-swanky LA neighborhood, the Wilshire Corridor.

Good for Kim Richards!!! According to a judge, Yolanda’s RHOBH cast mate Kim Richards is honoring all of her court orders (probation, community service and Alcohol Anonymous meetings). You will remember that I reported earlier on her arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel in April and at Target in August for behavior while she was under the influence. She is continuing to tape the reality show, and while doing so the judge has ordered that she attend at least one AA meeting per week. Kim you can do it!!!!

Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence while appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert made a joke referencing Lindsay Lohan which Lindsay’s sister Ali caught wind of! JLaw said she “has been puking lately because her nonstop work ethic makes her suffer Lindsay Lohan-grade exhaustion, but without any drugs or alcohol”. Ali Lohan tweeted out that she was disappointed in Jennifer’s comment and she has lost a fan. Lindsay then tweeted, “@aliana thank you those you’re referring to should learn to support others like #myaangelou”. Jennifer Lawrence did not respond to the tweet.

UNDIEGATE! Derek Jeter is being sued by Frigo underwear owner RevolutionWear for “defrauding and blatantly breaching the fiduciary duties of his contract”. In the $30 million suit, it claims Jeter stated he did not want the underwear to be “too gay”, he did not want it to be “too sporty” because it would possibly conflict with his relationship with Nike, and that he got upset when they signed 50 Cent to a contract as well because he said it makes the underwear “too urban”. Through his attorney, Jeter is denying all allegations. My question is…does this mean Jeter is running around commando?

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

Real Housewives of Atlanta stars NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore have always been very much known for throwing a lot of shade (and glasses,etc.) at each other! But Kenya surprised us all and I am sure NeNe as well when she went backstage after NeNe’s performance in Chicago on Broadway presenting her with flowers and complimenting Dame Leakes on her performance. NeNe later posted a selfie they took in her dressing room. Kenya then regrammed the photo and specifically addressed all the “haters” saying “They are no motives, no ulterior motives, no a – – kissing, no thirsts, just two women living their lives figuring it out as we go!” She then used the hashtag #womensupportingeachother”. Let’s hope this love fest last longer than 24 hours this time!

Kourtney Kardashian is flat out denying (“we are just friends”) that she is hooking up with Justin Bieber, but my sources in LA are not buying it.  This weekend she was seen leaving the Biebs hotel in Beverly Hills at 4AM! Additionally there have been other sightings (#hookups) starting in October of this year. You will remember earlier this year Justin dated Kourtney’s sister Kendall!

Eva Longoria is engaged to a real life mogul! While in Dubai on charity work for Global Gift Foundation her boyfriend since 2013 Jose Antonio Baston (nickname Pepe) President of Televisa, Latin America’s largest entertainment company popped the question and she said YES! This will be the third marriage (hopefully ‘Third Times a Charm’ is true!) for Eva whose new show on NBC called Telenovela starts January 4!

Congratulations Eva and Jose!

#ProudMama vs. Proud Mama jewelry company. Kris Jenner is wanting to trademark #ProudMama for “advertising” reasons, yet jewelry company owner Jenny Presents is saying not so fast mama! The single mama with an 8 year old son trademarked the name Proud Mama jewelry company in 2009 and she stated that she and her attorney will fight Kris Jenner “vigorously” to block Jenner from using #ProudMama. Can they please film this for Keeping Up With the Kardashians!, PLEASE!?

Lady Gaga unquestionably knows how to get attention and she and her beau Taylor Kinney (Chicago Fire) did just that when they walked into swanky Cipriani in New York with both of their adorable French bulldogs dressed in Santa suits! Now that’s sassy! As they left the restaurant anti-fur protesters who found out and spread the word on social media that they were at the restaurant, chanted no fur comments at the couple as they left.

Princess Kate dazzled in diamonds (they are a girl’s best friend after all!) at a reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace for ambassadors and diplomats. No photographers were allowed at the reception, yet Kate was snapped arriving in a Bentley and wearing the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara, which was favored by her late mother-in-law Princess Diana. The tiara which has pearls suspended by diamond love knots was commissioned by Queen Mary in 1913. Upon her death it was given to Queen Elizabeth. Queen Elizabeth then gave it to Diana as a wedding gift in 1981. When Diana divorced Prince Charles in 1996, she returned it to the Queen. This is the first time Kate has been seen in the tiara, and she was stunning!

Britney Spears show in Vegas is truly one of my favorites, yet Brit herself was upstaged at her own show by two guests’ in the audience!! What two people could upstage Britney you ask? Beyonce and Jay Z that’s who! Bey even jumped up (while Jay remained seated) and starting to dancing to “Oops…I Did It Again.” LOVE IT!

Kim Kardashian has stated she is “terrified” after giving birth! She is terrified that someone will snap an unauthorized photo of her and Kayne’s new addition, baby Saint! She did not specify what she is terrified about related to photography…possibly the millions they hope the first photo of the baby Khloe claims is “so cute and perfect” will fetch, if released by someone other than her or Kayne, or momager Kris Jenner? Personally if I was Kim I would be more terrified about the “sex marathon” Kayne says he is planning now that her pregnancy is over! (I am being serious) Oh My! As they did with their daughter North, Kim and Kayne have already said they will not allow their son to be filmed for episodes of E!’s popular show Keeping Up With The Kardashians (I guess they showed Ryan Seacrest who’s boss!).

LAX Airport in Los Angeles announced plans that many celebrities find very exciting! In 2016 LAX will offer an exclusive, paparazzi-proof entrance, and private security checkpoint for celebrities and others wanting to pay the additional $1,800.00 fee the airport will charge for this service.  Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon loves the idea, writing to LAX, “I fully support this option.”

Forbes has named Katy Perry the top grossing musician of 2015. The Super Bowl half-time performer raked in $135 million! She is followed by One Direction at $130 million, Garth Brooks at $90 million, Taylor Swift at $80 million and the Eagles round out the Top 5 with $73.5 million!

It’s A Boy!! Saint West (you read that right!!!) was born December 5th at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles weighing 8 pounds, 1 ounce. Proud parents Kim Kardashian and Kayne West along with baby sister North welcomed the Wests’ first son into the world in a very large deluxe maternity suite at the hospital filled with gifts, baskets, flowers and blue balloons. Kim’s sister Khloe was the first sister seen visiting the hospital. No word yet on whether her other sisters have made a visit to the hospital, yet Kendall was seen jetting across the pond and touched down in London less than 24 hours after the birth of the new addition to America’s first family of reality television! We are all waiting to see what Kayne gives Kim in honor of the birth of their son. A month ago Kim boldly (as a good Kardashian should do) posted on her website that she is hoping for a million dollar!! diamond choker for what she called a “push present”.

NEW BFF ALERT- Taylor Swift and Blake Lively have been spotted numerous times around Australia. T-Swisel is ‘down under’ on her 1989 World Tour. The two were most recently spotted at Warner Brothers Movie World taking photos with fans. Lively also attended Taylors concert is Australia. In other Swift news, Oscar winning actor Jared Leto went on somewhat of a Swift rant regarding her music, then I assume was quickly reminded by his management that she is the biggest pop star in the world and he probably does not want to upset her or her fan base (which probably equals half the world’s population!) so later sent a tweet stating “The truth is I think @taylorswift13 is amazing & an incredible example of what’s possible. If I hurt her or her fans my sincerest apologies”. Dear Jared, did you really have to stoop to the level of a Nikki Minaj!?

Taylor’s other BFF Selena Gomez was spotted with One Direction boy band member Niall Horan showing lots of PDA at Jenna Dewan’s birthday party in Los Angeles. Both Gomez and Horan performed earlier in the night at the LA Jingle Ball. Both also attended and performed at the American Music Awards in November.  Interesting to note is the fact that Horan is also good friends with Gomez’s ex Justin Bieber. The day after Selena and Niall were spotted kissing at the birthday party Bieber posted an older image of he and Selena on his Instagram…hmmm……!!!!, jealous?

Dancing with the Stars pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyod are engaged! The two got engaged, of course, on the dance floor on stage in Miami in front of the audience and a chorus line of dancers, including Maks’ brother Val, a DWTS  mirror ball champion himself! On bended knee Maks told Peta, “I’m in love with you, and I will be in love with you for the rest of my life.” She then said “Yes!” as he presented her with a custom designed Cantamessa ring!

It’s A Girl! Dear Kim Kardashian, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla virtually broke the internet with news that’s worthy of such a feat! The Facebook founder and his wife Priscilla announced the birth of their daughter Max via Facebook and shared in a letter to her that she gives hope for the future, a future “they hope includes advancing human potential and promoting equality.” To show their support of this hope, in celebration of her birth they are pledging 99% of their Facebook stock– $45 BILLION!!!  over the course of their lives (just so you know, they are serious!-they informed the Securities and Exchange Commission of their decision!) to the people who improve “the world for the next generation”. They signed the letter Love, Mom & Dad! Awwww! So Sweet!

It’s also a girl for Oscar winner Sandra Bullock! Bullock not only fostered but also adopted a beautiful 3 ½ year old little girl from Louisiana named Laila. She will join 5 year old Louis, who Bullock adopted in 2010. YEA! Sandi B!

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills favorite Yolanda Foster and her husband David are splitting after four years of marriage. The two have been together for a total of nine years (they were married on 11/11/11). In a statement they never mentioned the word divorce but did say during their time together, “we experienced love, friendship, and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families, and health issues”. This the second marriage for Yolanda (she has children Gigi, Bella, and Anwar Hadid from her first marriage), and the fourth marriage for David. I wish them both the best!

Kylie Jenner I am guessing was determined to show the world she is now an adult (she JUST! turned 18!) via the December/January issue of Interview magazine! She is the cover girl and in a pictorial inside she poses in a pair of latex chaps…yes chaps, with nothing on underneath! OH MY!!!

Courteney Cox has called off her engagement to rocker Johnny McDaid. The Friends star and the Snow Patrol guitarist were last seen together in a September Twitter post. My sources are telling me it was all about lifestyle choices, she likes to go out and socialize and he likes to stay home. Additionally, I am hearing he did not like how close she got to her male co-stars. I am told he moved out of both her Malibu and LA houses shortly before Thanksgiving and went back to England.

Marvin Gaye III will not be getting his share (lots of family members and others get a cut as well) of the “Blurred Lines” $7.4 million settlement until he pays his baby mama some back due child support! LA County stepped in and put a lien against the settlement until III pays Deanna Holly $62,564.44 in back child support. The judgement/settlement was made earlier this year when a court decided that the mega hit “Blurred Lines” infringed on the copyright of Marvin Gaye’s classic “Got to Give Up”.

Adele is a phenomenon! She shattered the record set by boy band ‘NSync for selling the most albums in a debut week in the United States. According to Nielsen Music Adele’s “25” sold over 3.38 million copies! That beats ‘NSync’s “No Strings Attached” by over 1 million copies! ‘NSync sent out a tweet saying “Bye, Bye, Bye” to our previous record!”. Adele’s “25” also becomes the highest selling album of 2015 topping Taylor Swift’s “1989”.

Since leaving One Direction Zayn Malik seems to very much be heading solely in the direction of Victoria Secrets Model Gigi Hadid, fresh off a break up from Joe Jonas! The two were spotted this weekend leaving hand in hand from West Hollywood hot spot The Nice Guy at 2:30am! The two have yet to confirm they are a couple, even though my LA sources have seen them on a lot of dates! Stay Tuned!

Speaking of couples, Mary-Kate Olsen (29) and Oliver Sarkozy (46) have tied the knot in a small New York ceremony! What everyone was talking about was not her dress or the flowers, but that on ALL the tables at the reception were bowls of cigarettes and virtually everyone lit up all night! Sarkozy is the half-brother of former French President Nicholas Sarkozy.

Taylor Swift could possibly be writing her next break up song about Facebook! Yes, ‘The Facebook’! Facebook is demoing a new “Break-Up Tool”, which will basically give you the opportunity to see less (or more!) of an ex after a break-up. When you test the tool – the name of the ex in the demo is Taylor! I am thinking that this not just a coincidence that fb used the Queen of Break-Up Songs name in the demo…surely fb was not dissing T-Swisel…Oh My!

Someone who might want to use that fb tool is Tim Tebow! Despite all his love letters, cute notes and professing his love, Tebow and Olivia Culpo have split. My sources are telling me the lack of sex in the relationship is the primary reason for the break-up. As I have reported, Tim Tebow has been very open about the fact that he does not want to have sex until marriage.

Congratulations Anne Hathaway! The Oscar winner is pregnant! This will be the first child for Hathaway and her husband Adam Shulman. The two were married in 2012.

New BFF Alert! Jennifer Lawrence was out with new BFF Adele for dinner at the Waverly Inn in New York. I suspected the two could have been celebrating the release of Adele’s new chart-topping album and the release of the Hunger Games which stars Lawrence. Both the album and the movie are topping the charts!

Enough about JLaw, let’s talk about JLo! Jennifer Lopez dazzled in an epic 10 minute dance number (that was booty-tastic!, I am on the only one that saw Nicki Minaj throwing shade during the performance?) to the year’s biggest songs to open the American Music Awards. JLo in a myriad of ten different outfits hosted the awards show which featured amazing performances by Selena Gomez, Coldplay, Carrie Underwood, Demi Lovato, One Direction, Nick Jonas, Alanis Morisette, and an emotional Gwen Stefani who sang her new song “Used to Love You”. Other memorable performances included the song “Marvin Gaye”, but it was not the song that had everyone talking, rather the verrrrrrrrry long kiss Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth decided to display on national television following their performance of the song. Jared Leto whose band had recently performed at the Bataclan Concert Hall where so many lost their lives in the Paris attacks introduced Celine Dion who paid tribute to Paris by singing “Hymne a’ L’Amour”, written by Edith Piaf. There was not a dry eye in the house! Harrison Ford introduced a cappella group Pentatonix who performed the iconic theme to Stars Wars backed by a massive 75 piece orchestra. The nights big winners included Taylor Swift for Song (“Blank Space”) and Album of the Year (1989), Female Artist of the Year Ariana Grande, Male Artist of the Year Ed Sherran and Artist of the Year, One Direction. Justin Bieber closed the show with a melody of three of his new songs and actually sang in the rain!

They’re married! Congratulations to Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello (#bestlookingbrideandgroomever, #jofia) who tied the knot this weekend at the swanky Breakers Resort in Palm Beach. Before 400 family and friends including Reese Witherspoon, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, Ed O’Neil, Paul Reubens, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Channing Tatum and more. The wedding capped a weekend of festivities including a pool party and a rehearsal dinner at Café Boulud which featured cocktail napkins that said “He had me at hola”, and Joe signing a rendition of the Guns N’ Roses hit “Sweet Child of Mine” to his Sofia. The bride looked gorgeous in a custom gown (no veil, but 11 pounds of sequins and 7 pounds of pearls!) by Zuhair Murad Couture in a breathtaking room on overload with orchids, hydrangeas, and roses. And in a surprise appearance, Pit Bull performed as guests danced the night away! In lieu of gifts the couple ask that donations be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital and the Pittsburgh Children’s Hospital.

Royal Recycler, The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has done it again! In a speech before the Place2Be Headteacher Conference Kate looked amazing in a previously worn, yet still fabulous dress by Matthew Williamson. I still contend she would look put together and gorgeous in sweat pants…but I am NOT! suggesting she do this!

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced that the daughter of actor Jamie Foxx, Corinne Foxx will serve as Miss Golden Globe for the 73rdAnnual Golden Globes Awards. The honor bestowed on the daughters of Hollywood royalty alumni list includes: Laura Dern, Lily Costner, Rumer Willis, Dakota Johnson, Kathryn Eastwood and more. The ceremony will air live on January 10th from Los Angeles.

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

Can I hear a resounding DUGH! Gorgeous hunk David Beckham has been crowned the 2015 People magazine Sexiest Man Alive!  He is the only athlete to ever win the honor! What took People so long to figure out what we (and Victoria) have known for so long?! Beckham joins fellow Sexiest Man Alive recipients, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Matthew McConanghey, Adam Levine, Chris Hemsworth and more! The news was revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, with Beckham appearing via satellite from London. Congratulations David Beckham! This is the 30th Anniversary for People magazine naming a Sexiest Men Alive, and we all hope for 30 more years!

Caitlyn Jenner spoke at her alma mater Graceland University in Iowa and made reference that to contrary belief of virtually everyone in the world,  her family does work very hard for their fame and fortune! She made specific reference to the modeling and spokesperson career path Kendall Jenner has mapped out for herself. Jenner known for years as a motivational speaker appears to be returning to the speaking circuit where she has made a fortune!

Tamar Braxton who recently had to drop out of the running for the coveted Dancing With the Stars Mirror Ball trophy because of blood clots in her lungs has been released from the hospital. My sources spotted her and her husband leaving a CVS in Woodland Hills, and her publicist confirmed she has been released, but is not yet 100% out of the woods! Wishing her a speedy recovery!

A big OUCH! from former One Direction band member Zayn Malik! Commenting (actually bashing!) on the release of One Direction’s new album Malik said it is “not music I would listen to”.  He went onto say he does not regret his decision to leave stating “I wanted to make music that I think is cool”.

Jennifer Lawrence has been named the Most Valuable Star in the world ahead of Robert Downey, Jr., and Leonardo Dicaprio. The editors of Vulture.com, do the annual list in which this year, Lawrence actually dethroned Downey who had topped the list for the last two years. Rounding out the top 5 were Bradley Cooper and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

Let me close with a fun fact about this year’s Sexiest Man Alive…he sleeps in the nude! That’s All!!

Madonna thought about cancelling her concert in Stockholm on Saturday night following the massacre in Paris, but instead went ahead not wanting the terrorists to win. Before 40,000 people she performed a moving acoustical rendition of ‘Like a Prayer’ with tears streaming down her face. The crowd sat in silence during her powerful, yet beautiful tribute to all those slain and injured.

Jennifer Lawrence opens up with surprising revelations about her personal life in the December issue of Vogue.  In the article she says, “I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me. I know where it’s coming from, I know they’re trying to establish dominance, but it hurts my feelings. I’m just a girl who wants you to be nice to me. I am straight as an arrow. I feel like I need to meet a guy, with all due respect, who has been living in Baghdad for five years who has no idea who I am.” You can read full article when it hits newsstands November 18.

Talk about piling on!! It all started when Holly Holm shocked a UFC 193 crowd by KOing Ronda Rousey in the second round with a crashing kick to the neck! Rousey was transported to an Australian hospital for precautionary reasons. Rousey did reveal she will have plastic surgery on her lip to repair a “very big gash”. Following Holm, Lady Gaga decided to take on Rousey in the social media ‘ring’. Rousey has been taking heat for bad sportsmanship because she would not touch gloves with Holm before the fight. Gaga made reference on her Instagram post that Rousey was disrespecting Holm, and that karma is a b—-h! Following Gaga, Laila Ali decided she would pile on by saying “in order to be the best in the world, you definitely don’t EVER get beat up like that in your prime, period!”. Ali was making reference to the fact that she feels Rousey is overrated. OUCH! I consider that three knock-out’s! Gaga and Ali, love you both and I suggest you watch your backs, Rousey is one tough lady! UFC promises a rematch.

Steve Harvey apparently thinks your standard Gulfstream is not good enough for him (guess he’s never flown commericial middle seat coach)! Harvey signed a contract and leased a jet from Business Aircraft Leasing. In the lease he stipulated $400,000 worth of upgrades including reducing 16 seats to 14, custom seat design, new upper and lower cabin sidewalls, and more! The company said the modifications were made in reliance of the contract, and then Harvey decided he did not want to lease the jet. The company is seeking $205,000.00 minimum.

Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid both made their debut as ‘Angels’ in the Victoria Secret Fashion Show, a pinnacle for many ‘Super Models’! Seated in the audience cheering Kendall on were both of her parents Kris and Caitlyn Jenner! The annual event also featured models Behati Prinsloo (Mrs. Adam Levine), Alessandra Ambrosio and Lily Aldridge who was selected to wear the famed 2 million ‘Fantasy Bra’! The show also featured musical artists Selena Gomez singing “Me & My Girls”, Ellie Goulding performing “Love Me Like You Do” from the 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack, and The Weekend singing “ Can’t Feel My Face”. The show airs December 8 on CBS.

Tamar Braxton has officially dropped out of Dancing With The Stars, right before the semi-finals. She has been in the hospital with what she thought was pneumonia. She was so ill this week the judges had to use her rehearsal video to judge her, but she did perform in the group dance (against doctor’s orders). Following the performance she went back to the hospital and doctor’s did more test and discovered she has blood clots in her lungs! She let fans know via Instagram she is putting her health first and dropping out of DWTS. Wishing her all the best!

Ariana Grande is the newest spokesperson for MAC Viva Glam. She will work with the brand on a lip collection (no word yet on whether there will be a doughnut flavored lip gloss!), set to debut in January. All proceeds go to the MAC AIDS fund.

ABC has released a statement in support of The View co-host Raven-Symone’ after her controversial comments regarding police brutality. A petition was started to have her removed from the show. ABC stated, “we love Raven, she is confident, genuine, and opinionated-all qualities that make her a great addition to the panel”. They did not say, but I am sure they also thought…and is helping to keep the show relevant and obviously in the news!

Cameron Diaz has finally decided to redecorate her Beverly Hills bachelorette pad after marrying Benji Madden in January. The couple say they have decided to put a little of Benji’s “rocker style” into the love nest. The couple are neighbors with his twin Joel and wife Nicole Richie.

Kris Jenner the matriarch of ALL things Kardashian (that includes you Kayne!) celebrated her 60th Birthday alongside boyfriend Cory Gamble (33) and the entire Kardashian clan at a two million dollar black-tie Great Gatsby themed soiree’!  The bash held at The Lot in West Hollywood included a special videotaped birthday message from Caitlyn Jenner (not in attendance) taken while she was enjoying a glass of bubbly in a bubble bath, and a singing of Happy Birthday by Kayne West. DJ Cassidy spun tunes in for guests’ including John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, Tommy Hillfiger, Ryan Seacrest (dugh!), Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna, and Kyle Richards. The last known photo of the event was at 3AM and showed the momager passed out in the back of a limo…always the sign of a successful Kardashian party! Happy Birthday Kris!

He’s back at it! Justin Bieber was caught throwing yet another chair! Not that we will ever see him throwing the javelin at the Olympics but he does seen to have quite the arm! This time the Biebs was in Cannes, France having lunch with a friend, and all the sudden he jumps up, throws a chair and leaves the restaurant. Many thought he was annoyed by fans (you know the people that buy his songs and purchase his concert tickets) taking photos, but Justin claims “a buddy told me some bad personal news and I took it hard”. #growup

Gwen Stefani has obviously not been spending all her time with new beau Blake Shelton,  because she has had time to design and debut her new line of clothing…for dogs! The Harajuku Lovers brand will make your pet not only the best dressed but very likely the most punk pet on the block! The collection features hoodies, socks, hats, bow ties, sweaters, and chew toys for your dog! The line is affordable with pieces ranging from $5.00-$20.00!

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez were spotted together taking their daughter Nahla to a birthday party in the San Fernando Valley. My sources tell me this should not signal a reconciliation (I ask why is he still wearing his wedding ring!?), yet they are just being “civilized” for their daughters sake, and that both still have divorce papers filed! A “civilized” Hollywood divorce? What a concept!!!!

Diva Feud Alert! Hollywood powerhouse manager Benny Medina used to rep Mariah Carey from 2003-2008, and wanted to help the songbird revive her career, yet in steps Jennifer Lopez! Lopez went all ‘Jenny from the Block’ when she heard this! Medina, who now manages Lopez (and is actually the one who prompted and encouraged her to be a judge on American Idol- which many agree did trigger her the resurgence of her career and brand) was told by J-Lo if you want to manage me, you cannot also manage Mariah. There is actually a clause in Lopez’s contract with Medina that says “No Mariah”.  I wonder if Nick Cannon has that same thing in all of his contracts?

The biggest news from the CMA Awards last night was from Blake Shelton. Shelton confirmed he and fellow The Voice judge Gwen Stefani are dating. Stefani was not at the actual awards ceremony but my sources are telling me she was in Nashville. Shelton’s ex-wife Miranda Lambert was also at the ceremony. She was in the audience, preformed and picked up the Female Vocalist of the Year award for the sixth time! In her acceptance speech she said, “thank you, I needed a bright spot this year”. The other big winner of the night was country newcomer Chris Stapleton who picked up awards for New Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Album of the Year. Additionally, he had the evenings most talked about performance with fellow Tennessean Justin Timberlake! Little Big Town picked up Song of the Year and Record of the Year for the popular, yet controversial song ‘Girl Crush’. Luke Bryan closed the show being named Entertainer of the Year!

Sandra Bullock is set to lead a female-centric cast in a remake of Ocean’s Eleven! George Clooney is behind the project and has reportedly signed on his pal Bullock!

Clooney starred in the remake and its sequel of the 1960’s Frank Sinatra film of the same name along with Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and Julia Roberts. No word on whether Roberts will return and when production will begin.

You have been warned- Don’t Mess With Serena! Serena Williams was dining in a cozy San Francisco restaurant when someone grabbed her cellphone and took off! Serena jumped up out of her seat and over chairs and chased the man! She said she caught him in a flash and then politely and calmly ask him if he “accidentally took the wrong phone”. Needless to say, he gave the phone back and when Serena walked back in the restaurant, she got a Standing O! LOVE IT! She told restaurant patrons “always listen to your super hero inner voice”!  I say, You Go Girl!!!!

Pitch Perfect star and funny girl Rebel Wilson unleashed on the Kardashiansduring a radio interview in Australia. She stated she was first slated to present at the VMA’s with Kendall and Kylie Jenner and said absolutely not! She said, “what the Kardashians stand for is totally against what I stand for”. She went on to call them “a no-talent family who does not deserve the fame they have achieved.” Ouch!

Newly divorced Voice judges Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani attended not one but two Halloween parties together! First stop, George Clooney’s, second stop Jared Leto’s. They left the Clooney bash separately, and both ended up at Leto’s soiree! When they left Jared’s in the wee hours of November 1, they were holding hands! When they saw photographers snapping shots, they let each other’s hand go. Gwen was dressed as a cowgirl! I am not saying she was dressed as Miranda Lambert, but this was definitely an interesting choice of costume! Oh My!

If you were watching runners in the New York City Marathon and thought you saw Alicia Keys running along the streets- YOU DID! The Grammy winner was among the thousands who ran in Sunday’s marathon!

One Direction gave their final concert on November 1 in Sheffield, United Kingdom before a packed house of devoted ‘Directioners’! The superstar boy band fought back tears and hugged each other as Harry Styles said to the crowd, “please don’t forget us”. After five years of non-stop touring the band announced earlier this year, they are taking a much needed “long break”.

Iggy Azalea does not ‘fancy’ a remake of “Lady Marmalade” made famous by Christina Aguilera, Mya, Lil’ Kim and Pink!  Rita Ora, told a UK paper that she would like to do a remake of the hit with herself, Iggy, Miley and Chari XCX. Iggy fired back on Twitter stating, “Please leave me out of the whole Lady Marmalade conversation. I have nothing to do with Rita’s idea & and agree it should be left alone.” Dear Iggy, it was just a suggestion! Iggy better be happy she said that to Rita Ora and not Taylor Swift, or she might have had a hit song written about her!

Khloe Kardashian continues to give support to Lamar Odom while he recovers in an LA hospital from an alleged drug overdose. This week her current boyfriend James Harden stated that he is giving his full support to both Khloe and Lamar. Now that is a good man!

‘Hello’, I’ve got some fabulous news! Adele is set to be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live during the November 21 show! Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey is set to host, and with that I say, ‘Alright, Alright, Alright’!

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are the latest Hollywood couple to call it quits after two years of marriage. In a statement issued by Berry’s publicist Meredith O’Sullivan, the couple stated, “it is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce. We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son. We wish each other nothing but happiness in life and we hope that you respect our and, most importantly our children’s privacy as we go through this difficult period.” They have a son Marco, 2, and Berry has a daughter, Nahla, 7, from a previous relationship with model Gabriel Aubry.

SO EXCITED! Universal Pictures has announced that Elizabeth Banks will return to direct the third ‘Pitch Perfect’ movie! Banks made her directorial debut with this summer’s smash hit ‘Pitch Perfect 2’. Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Brittany Snow have all signed on for the next movie set to release in August of 2017.

If you live in Beverly Hills, lock up your wine glasses!!! After announcing this summer that she was leaving ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ to work on her podcast, Brandi Glanville has been spotted filming scenes for the sixth installment of the Bravo hit! She will appear occasionally, but other cast members claim she still should not be considered a regular (ladies, let’s not be bitter!). My inside sources are telling me the show needed some drama and who better to hurl a wine glass across a swanky restaurant than the divine Ms. Glanville!

I predict the 88th Annual Academy Awards (February 28, 2016) will be one of the best, if not the funniest ever! When asked if anything will be off limits for the host, Producers Reginald Hudlin and David Hill replied, “Good heavens, no! It’s Chris Rock for God’s sake!”.  Rock drew both praise and criticism as the host of the 77th Oscars in 2005 (remember when he questioned Jude Law’s ‘star’ credentials, then Sean Penn took it upon himself to defend Law…I agree with most- Penn did not get the joke!). The producers went on to say, “we are talking about someone who prepares to the nth degree. The combination of comedy plus intelligence represents the best of both worlds!”. The producers previously hinted that a co-host will be announced, yet this week they stated, “It will just be Chris, Chris and Rock!”

Jimmy Fallon barely escaped having another accident involving one of his hands this weekend! He was in Cambridge, Massachusetts to be honored by the ‘Harvard Lampoon’ the university’s humor magazine. While leaving the event he tripped over a woman kneeling in front of him while carrying a bottle of Jägermeister! He fell and cut his hand on glass and at the urging of police went to the hospital to have it checked out where he was later released with doctors giving him a clean bill of health! I reported earlier this year that he almost had to have a finger amputated after falling in his kitchen and getting his ring caught on the cabinet!

Kim Kardashian postponed her baby shower due to Lamar Odom being hospitalized and on life support and the fact that her sister Khloe could not attend. With Lamar doing better and now in a Los Angeles hospital Kim rescheduled her Girl Scouts themed baby shower, and it was held this weekend in Beverly Hills. Khloe and the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner sisters showed up in matching jammies. The shower was complete with tents in the living room, Thin Mints and a showing of the movie ‘Troop Beverly Hills’!

Gwen Stefani and hubby Gavin Rossdale filed for divorce in August after 13 years of marriage. My source in Hollywood is telling me the case is finalizedand should be signed off on a by a judge by the end of the year. In the settlement they will get each have 50/50 custody of their three children, yet Gavin will actually be caring for them more as Gwen tours. I am also hearing that since there was no pre-nup each was entitled to a 50% share of their community property and assets. However, Gavin took far less in order to quickly settle the case.

NeNe Leakes one of the most popular housewives in the history of the ‘Real Housewives’ franchise is headed to back Broadway! Leakes who  has appeared on ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’, ‘Dancing with the Stars’, ‘Celebrity Apprentice’, ‘Glee’, ‘The New Normal’ and more will take on the role of Mama Norton in the long-running hit musical Chicago November 23- December 20. This is Leakes’ first return to Broadway since she played the Wicked Stepmother in Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella. Break a leg, NeNe!

Stay Classy New York, a Will Ferrell themed bar has opened in the Lower East Side of Manhattan! At the bar you will find some of your favorite Ferrell characters, in an art gallery and on the drink menu! Now that sounds like fabulous fun!!

Khloe Kardashian sent her Hollywood powerhouse attorney Laura Wasser to the LA courthouse yesterday to have her divorce case against Lamar Odom dismissed. The case which Khloe filed in 2013 and both her and Lamar had signed was sitting in a huge pile of cases waiting to be signed off by a judge, so it was not officially finalized. Khloe stated yesterday that Lamar has promised her he is swearing off drugs since hitting rock bottom while found unconscious in a brothel in Nevada, and ending up on life support in a Las Vegas hospital. My sources are telling me Khloe has the full support of the entire Kardashian/Jenner family.  Additionally, Khloe issued a statement in which she said, “This past week has been incredibly difficult. I am thankful to family, friends and fans, who have sent nothing but well wishes to Lamar. I also want to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work.”

Warning- do not mess with a Skinny Girl! Skinnygirl brand creator Bethenny Frankel and her company SG Marks are suing Travis and Stacy Labarge saying that their SkinnyGirl Tea is a piggyback off the hard word and success of her brand. The Labarge’s said they came up with the name by simply going to Google keywords and putting in weight loss tea, and that they have never heard of Frankel or her product. Hmmmmmm, what’s in that tea!? Frankel and the brand have been a powerhouse since 2009!

Oscar Winner, Fashion It Girl, People’s magazine Most Beautiful and pretty much every other imaginable award winner Lupita Nyong’o is headed to Broadway! Nyong’o will make her debut next year in ‘Eclipsed’ a play set in a civil-war torn Liberia in the early 21st century! The play will begin with previews at the Golden Theatre February 23 and open March 6.

Another Hollywood powerhouse family is also making Broadway home base. Bruce Willis is set to open in an adaptation of the Stephen King novel Miseryon November 15. Also on the Great White Way, his daughter and Dancing With the Stars champ Rumer is currently starring in Broadway’s longest running revival Chicago as the killer fox Roxie Hart!

Tracy Morgan has announced he is embarking on a nation-wide comedy stand-up tour. The news follows appearances by Morgan as host of Saturday Night Live and at a ceremony honoring Eddie Murphy at the Kennedy Center. The tour begins February 5th at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond Indiana.

Taylor Swift suffered an injury prior to her concert in Dallas on Saturday night, and tweeted out “Band-Aids don’t fix kitchen knife-related injuries”, of course a reference to her mega hit ‘Bad Blood’. As they say the show must gone on, so Taylor shook it off and performed before 60,000+ fans sporting a white bandage with the her signature ‘13’ on her finger. Swift continues to bring stars into her galaxy on her tour, this time bringing up her friend Elle Goulding. The two performed a duet to ‘Love Me Like You Do’! The concert (and her outfits) were amazing!

Tracy Morgan made a triumphant return to Saturday Night Live as host this weekend. The appearance was filled with lots of laughter, emotion and even references to his near fatal accident. He celebrated with friends, family and fans after the show. It was wonderful to see Tracy and his amazing comedic nature back preforming!

Following his performance on SNL, Morgan headed to DC to honor his friend Eddie Murphy who received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.  Some past recipients include Richard Pryor, Ellen DeGeneres and George Carlin. When Morgan walked onto the stage, he received a standing ovation.  While honoring Murphy, Tracy looked up at him seated in a special box at the Kennedy Center and said, “when I came out of my coma I spoke to Eddie on the phone, and he was the first one to make me laugh, and that’s why I love you!”. He went on to say, “you are a true comedic hero, and the reason I have a career.” The show was taped for broadcast and will air November 23 on PBS.

Oprah Winfrey bought a 10% stake in Weight Watchers for 43 million dollars! Once she did this, the stock soared and in one day off her 43 million dollar investment Oprah made 70 million dollars! YES! 70 million dollars!  Additionally, she will join the board (if I was Weight Watchers, I would let her be Chairman of the Board!) No other plans regarding her involvement were revealed, but stay tuned to A Dose of Sass, you know there will be some!

JELENA fans are rejoicing. On October 17 both Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez surprised the world by dropping a new duet. The song titled ‘Strong’ which has a strong and sexy vibe my sources told me has actually been secretly in the works for months. Both Justin and Selena participated in the creation and writing of the song which broaches the subject of complicated and brutal relationships.

Mariah Carey has signed a multi-million dollar deal for a one-night only performance at the Copacabana in Brazil. One of my sources in LA tells me she is getting anywhere from $2-5 million for the show! WHOA! May 2016 bring us all such great fortune!

Female and even male (including her American Hustle co-star Bradley Cooper)actors are applauding a powerful essay written by Hollywood It-Girl Jennifer Lawrence. The piece on Hollywood’s gender pay gap titled, “Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co-Stars?” was published on Lena Dunham’s website Lenny Letter. Up until now JLaw says she never brought up the issue to studio executives because she did not want to be labeled a “spoiled brat”. She said once she thought about it more, she actually did not get mad at the studios, but was instead mad at herself for not bringing the issue to the forefront. After reading what she wrote her friend Emma Watson tweeted “O Jennifer Lawrence I love you so.”

Taylor Swift once again leads the pack on music nominations, this time for the American Music Awards. Swift received six nods, and is followed by Ed Sheeran and the Weekend who each received five. The awards show hosted by Jennifer Lopez (who will also perform a few numbers from her new Vegas show which opens on January 20, 2016) will be held in Los Angeles on November 22.

Mark Your Calendars, this ought to be good! Donald Trump will host Saturday Night Live on November 7. Last time he appeared on the show was in 2004, when the show ‘The Apprentice’ hit the airwaves. In other Trump news, I reported earlier that he was sent a Cease and Desist letter from Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler requesting he stop playing ‘Dream On’ (which Tyler fully owns as the sole writer of the song) at his campaign events. Trump said he paid for the rights to play the song, but out of respect for his friend Steven Tyler he will stop playing it. He stated, “I guess I will move on, instead of ‘Dream On’ “.  I want to know more…it’s very rare for Trump to back down to anyone…spill what you have on him Steven! It’s gotta be good!

Nashville star Hayden Panettiere has voluntarily checked herself into a treatment center to seek help for Postpartum Depression. She revealed last month on Kelly & Michael that she has been struggling with depression ever since her daughter Kaya was born in December.  Ironically her character on Nashville portrays a new mother with this exact condition. She has asked that everyone please respect her privacy during this time. I certainly wish her all the best and a very speedy recovery!

Justin Timberlake is lobbying to host the 2016 Academy Awards. My sources are telling me he is in contact with the producers of one of television biggest shows claiming he can sing, dance and act. Based upon his hosting abilities on Saturday Night Live, he’s got my vote! The 88th Academy Awards ceremony will take place on February 28, 2016 from Los Angeles, California.

JLo, Harry Connick, Jr. and Keith Urban all got a big surprise when a contestant walked into the American Idol auditions in San Francisco!  SURPRISE!!, that contestant was none other than Kanye West, boasting (shocking!) to the three judges he wanted to be the last American Idol (this is the show’s final season). I bet he is thinking that being an American Idol is exactly what he needs to become President in 2020. Think about it…First Lady Kim Kardashian West…Oh My!

We can officially add Oscar Winner Anne Hathaway to the DIVA list. She was on set at Paramount filming  and ask for a poached egg, toasted English muffin and avocado. When it arrived, she sent it back saying the egg was too runny. They brought it back, and SHE SENT IT BACK AGAIN! saying that when they were re-preparing the poached egg, the English muffin got cold! This is a true story!, So SHE SENT IT BACK AGAIN! saying the egg was now cold again because of the re-heating of the English muffin! I am not making this up! So it arrives again, and she says “I decided I don’t want it anymore”. Mariah Carey, if you are looking for your crown, it is on Anne Hathaway’s head!

An attorney representing Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler has sent a letter to Donald Trump for the SECOND time requesting Trump stop using ‘Dream On’ on his campaign stops. The first letter went unanswered, and Trump continued to use the song so the second letter contained a Cease and Desist. Tyler, who has been sociable with Trump over the years feels that his using of the song (which Tyler wrote) will signify to people that he is endorsing the Republican party candidate for President.

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

Ryan Murphy is so impressed with Lady Gaga’s acting in his series American Horror Story: Hotel, he is literally begging her to come back for what we all hope will be a season 6 of the hit show! Murphy has stated he as officially ask her to come back and additionally tweeted “Say yes @ladygaga!”. Gaga has been very honest about the nerves she has experienced on the first day of filming. She stated she really “read the f—k out of the scripts, over and over and over, 10 times each at least!” I agree with Murphy- say yes Lady Gaga! Personally, I feel he probably wants her back because if you saw the premiere you realize…she really has no wardrobe budget…oh my!

Rihanna graces the cover of the November issue of Vanity Fair. The magazine is out digitally on October 8 and on newsstands October 15. The photo spread includes amazing photography of Rhi Rhi shot in Cuba by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, including one shot of her laying on the bed exposing her backside…Oh My!

In the article she opens up like she has never before about her relationship with ex Chris Brown. She said “I realized I was 100% one of those people who felt like they could change the other person”. She said if you put up with being treated a certain way, then you have to admit you deserve and should not complain about it. She said I knew I was not that type of person, and had to walk away. She went onto say, “I don’t hate Chris Brown, I will always care for him, yet are not friends-but we are not enemies…we don’t have much of a relationship now.” The article is a very powerful must read!

Jennifer Lopez will host (for the first time!) and perform at the American Music Awards (AMA’s) to be held in Los Angeles on November 22. I suspect we will see lots of teases and material from her upcoming Vegas show entitled “All I Have” at the AXIS Theatre at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino starting January 20, 2016. The nominees for the AMA’s will be announced Tuesday on Good Morning America by Joe Jonas and Charlie Puth.

Christina Aguilera will take back her big red chair from Gwen Stefani very soon! She has once again signed on to join Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Pharrell Williams as judges on The Voice when the NBC reality series begins season ten in February.

On a final note, Mariah Carey has announced SHE is directing Hallmark moviefor the holidays, titled ‘A Christmas Melody’. You have been warned!

THE DO’S AND DON’TS OF MEETING DESIGN

Posted in: CORT Postings

Hey Sassies!

Designing an effective meeting/conference space helps promote productivity, networking and creativity. Smart space planning, comfortable seating, functional furniture, and overall aesthetics play a role in a successful meeting or conference. In designing your next meeting or conference, the design experts at CORT Event Furnishings urge you to consider the following Do’s and Don’ts of meeting design.

 

Do: use Powered Furniture

Powered-Meetings

The importance of staying connected cannot be stressed enough in the current business environment. When attendees rush to find seating by wall outlets to charge their phones or other electronics, it’s disruptive to the overall experience. Instead, consider utilizing CORT’s new powered furniture for your meeting. Pieces such as the powered Roma sofa offer sleek, stylish seating with charging outlets built seamlessly into the arms. The powered G30 Communal Tables create a great opportunity for communal work space that fosters a team environment and encourages collaborative strategic planning.

 

Looking for general powered seating options in a lobby or a lounge? Consider the Powered Banquette System. The modular design allows for flexibility in seating that can be configured for any space and allows attendees to relax and charge their devices.

 

 

Don’t: Crowd the Room

E4

Make sure you design your rental furnishings in a way that allows for easy movement and flexibility. Consider using round seating such as pieces from the CORT Endless Collection that will allow for constant flow around the furnishings. Bar table groupings are also a great way for small groups to gather and work together on a project or network. The key here is to make sure there is plenty of seating, but also tables for drinks, food or electronics. Modular pieces such as the Heathrow Collection and Endless Collection allow for arranging a design to fit a particular conference activity. The design of your space will make a world of a difference in how your attendees experience the meeting. Comfortable spaces that are conducive to learning and collaboration result in attendees who are more likely to be creative and productive.

 

Do: Brand the room

Marriott-Meetings-of-the

Use the conference to tell the story of your corporate brand. This includes signage, marketing collateral, programs, and yes, furniture. What is the theme of your conference? What is the color scheme? How can all of the moving parts, including furniture, play a part in supporting your message? How can you better create an immersive experience for your attendees by making sure ALL pieces work seamlessly together? Are you designing a modern 1960’s, Mad Men type theme? Utilize pieces in the Draper Collection to create iconic vignettes that make attendees feel like they took a step back in time.

 

Don’t: Fall Short on Design

IMG_3207-X3

The days of boardroom style conference set-ups are long gone. Attendees want aesthetically pleasing design that delights the senses and offers a collaborative team environment conducive to learning, networking, and brainstorming. Strive for a holistic approach when it comes to design and make if feel comfortable, but don’t forget the details make the difference. Accent pieces, color schemes and unique seating arrangements go a long way to create an overall immersive experience.

The world’s biggest pop star, Taylor Swift continues to surprise fans attending her concerts with unannounced guests. In Toronto, Canada, she invited country star Keith Urban to the stage. Urban went on to sing his tracks including John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16 and Somebody Like You. The next night in Toronto she invited Charli XCX onstage to perform Boom Clap. The list of celebs she has invited up at various shows includes, bestie Selena Gomez, Ellen, John Legend, Justin Timberlake, Lisa Kudrow, Mick Jagger, Julia Roberts and more!

What girl does not love flowers? Charlize Theron, if she does not know who sent them! A person rang the gate at her Hollywood Hills home saying he had a floral delivery. Charlize was not expecting flowers and smartly ask them to leave them at the gate. The person refused so Charlize called 911. The police arrived and arrested the individual for stalking!

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s adopted daughter Isabella recently got married in London and my sources are telling me that neither of her parents showed up! Turns out Isabella wanted a small, intimate wedding with her friends and not the huge media event that would have happened if her parents were in attendance, so they were not invited! I am hearing Nicole is “overjoyed” for her daughter and Tom paid for the affair held at the uber chic (AND EXPENSIVE!) Dorchester Hotel. Additionally, the grooms parents were not in attendance either. Isabella has already changed her last name from Cruise to Parker.

Speaking of changing names, Kaley Cuoco has ALREADY! dropped her estranged husband Ryan Sweetings last name. She showed off her newly reclaimed name by posting a photo on Instagram of her place setting at the Longines Masters event. The table card read Kaley Cuoco. On the Insta post she wrote “And my weekend starts now”. My sources are telling me the reason for the divorce was Sweeting’s addiction to painkillers.

This makes me never want to take a selfie again! One of the world’s most gorgeous women, Sofia Vergara has said she hates selfies because she feels she always “looks awful” in them! How and when does Sofie Vergara ever look “awful”?! She said her son Manolo claims her selfies are not working because she is holding the phone too low (many claim that is one of the tricks of a good selfie- hold the phone high!). Sofia went on to say she doesn’t even let beau Joe Manganiello see her wearing a face mask…we will see if that changes after marries Joe this November!

Taylor Swift paid 25 million dollars for the historic Beverly Hills estate of Samuel Goldywn. The 25 year-old millionaire bought the two acre estate that has 11,000 square feet, six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a two-room guest apartment, gardens, tennis courts, swimming pool with a pool house containing a kitchen and more! Swift already owns another home in Beverly Hills, along with a 4,000 square foot penthouse in Nashville.

Katy Perry brought a female fan up on stage during her performance at the Rock in Rio festival and I am sure regrets her choice in who to bring up! Once on stage the fan (we don’t know her name, and neither does Katy even though she ask her three times and all she got was a slur each time, lol!) started kissing Katy, then grabbed her chest and while exiting, grabbed Katy’s backside! OH MY! I wonder if Taylor Swift sent the fan up there!

So much for Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani having a “friendly split”, as they both said they would. My sources in Hollywood are now saying Gavin wants half of the fortune she has made from her clothing line, music career and judges’ salary from The Voice. He claims that while Gwen was out expanding her brand, he stayed home and raised their three sons, Kingston, Zuma and Apollo. Additionally, his attorney is stating that if she does not fork over the cash, he will not hesitate to go to trail and seek both spousal and child support.

Fans of ‘Fast & Furious’ are rejoicing due to a recent Facebook post by Vin Diesel. In the post Vin Diesel assured fans that the franchise is not over yet and that he is working with Universal to produce a trilogy of films to complete the franchise stating, “I promised the studio I would deliver one last trilogy to end the saga.”

Billboard magazine has announced Lady Gaga as their 2015 Woman of the Year! She will succeed Taylor Swift as last year’s honoree. This year’s event will be televised on Lifetime in December from Cipriani Midtown. Additionally, Billboard stated they will announce other honorees in the coming weeks.

You probably know by now, I have always been a big TSwisel fan! During a recent stop of her current concert tour, I became an event bigger fan! Throughout the tour she has not disappointed, bringing mega stars on stage at every stop, and she certainly did not disappoint in Nashville! In the country music capital of the states she surprised us all by bringing to the stage to sing “ (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” none other than Mick Jagger! WOW! You Go Girl!

Two more Hollywood couples are sadly calling it quits! After a fabulous wedding on New Year’s Eve, and a marriage that lasted less than two years,  Kaley Cuoco and her 28-year-old tennis pro husband Ryan Sweeting are divorcing. Additionally, the wife of “black-ish” star Anthony Anderson filed for divorce. The couple married in 1999 and has two children.

Imagine if you will…your neighbors were Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian and Kayne West! Now that’s one block party I wanna be invited too! Miley just recently moved to a seven bedroom house (with a 10-stall barn!) right down the block from Mr. and Mrs. West! Lucky for the Wests, if Kim needs an extra egg for baking she can just run down to Miley’s, because Miley’s property also has a chicken coop! Kim and Kayne have yet to move in as they are currently bunking with Momanger Kris Jenner while “dramatic renovations” are being done to the house! I say we all go ‘trick or treating’ on this block!

Johnny Depp is definitely in love with Amber Heard! How much so? So much sold that he sold his 156-foot yacht! The yacht which he bought was named Vajoliroja after his longtime love Vanessa Paradis and their kids Lily-Rose and Jack. My sources tell me Amber refused to step foot on the vessel, still a tad jealous of Vanessa (if I was Amber, I would just paint over the name and set sail!)

Honey Boo Boo, Mama June and Sugar Bear can all bid farewell to their old home in Mcyntire, Georgia. The owner thought he could get way more than the home’s appraised value ($45,000) so he put it up for auction…well no one bid! (you read that right, NO ONE!) The owner then decided to bulldoze it to make way for new construction! Good decision! #duh

HOT COUPLE ALERT! Christie Brinkley and rocker John Mellencamp have been spotted multiple times at various New York hot spots! The supermodel does seem to like the music men! And, Kate Hudson and Nick Jonas have been spotted together on multiple occasions!

Sean Penn may have just written an episode of the hit show ‘Empire’! Penn filed a $10 million dollar defamation lawsuit in New York against ‘Empire’ co-creator Lee Daniels. The suit was filed after Daniels compared ‘Empire’ star Terrance Howard’s domestic violence issues to those of Penn. Howard said in a Hollywood Reporter article that “Howard ain’t done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he’s some (NAUGHTY WORD!) demon! That’s a sign of the time, of race, of where we are right now in America.” In the lawsuit it says “As a result of Penn’s status as a public figure, he has for years been the subject of scandalous, scurrilous, and baseless attacks…But, Penn, like any citizen, has a right to defend himself and will no longer tolerate the reckless and malicious behavior of others, who seek to aggrandize themselves or their projects at his expense.”  Many feel Howard was referencing Penn’s marriage to Madonna.

Blake Shelton is now talking about his dramatic weight loss and revealed it was not because of an exercise routine or diet…well then how did he do it!? Shelton says it was “the stress of getting unhitched”. Shelton was of course referring to his recent divorce from Miranda Lambert. I have to say…he looks amazing! (and so does Miranda by the way!)

One Direction is gearing up to release their fifth album entitled ‘Made In the A.M.’. The album promises to continue to showcase the band’s current mature sound. The jury is still out on if this will indeed be their last…#CollectorsItem.

Usher secretly married his longtime girlfriend Grace Miguel. They had originally planned to wed in Usher’s hometown of Atlanta, but instead opted to elope and then have a secret honeymoon in Cuba! Neither are commenting, but my sources in LA saw Usher at Fetty Wap’s album release party at 1 OAK sporting a wedding band! Nobody hides from me!

Matthew Knowles (as in Beyonce’s Daddy!) has confirmed he is in talks to make a movie or TV biopic on Destiny’s Child! He goes on to say he hopes his daughter and bandmates will reunite to make another album or tour, or both! Knowles still manages the group! Personally, I would love a ‘Bootylicous’ reunion!

There was an abundance of glitz and glamour as the stars of television walked the red carpet at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards, as temperatures soared to nearly 100 degrees in Hollywood! The carpet was filled with lots of yellow, cut-out’s, sunglasses, and Lady Gaga looking gorgeous in an understated black gown by Brandon Maxwell. Sofia Vergara announced on the carpet that her wedding to Joe Mangeniello will indeed (as I reported) happen this November. Big winners included ‘Game of Thrones’ and Julia Louis Dreyfus and ‘Veep’ (which broke the ‘Modern Family’ winning streak).  Additionally, the male version of Susan Lucci, Jon Hamm took home an acting Emmy for his last season of ‘Mad Men’, and Viola Davis became the first African-American woman to win in the Best Actress in a Drama Series category, and delivered the acceptance speech of the night! The telecast was also the emotional return of Tracy Morgan to the stage, presenting an award in true Tracy Morgan fashion! It was wonderful to see him and his brilliant humor back on the stage!

Kylie Jenner was the victim of an attack by a fan at the Chris Brown concert in Anaheim. She was in attendance to watch her boyfriend Tyga perform with Brown. As she was entering the arena a fan pulled her hair causing her neck to snap back. Security jumped in and the over zealous fan was tossed! Oh My! No worries though Kylie is ok and celebrated Sunday Funday by ordering in Chinese for herself and friends…and not just any Chinese. One of Kylie’s favorite restaurants is Philippe Chow in Beverly Hills, yet she did not want to drive the 45 minutes (does she not have a driver!?) to pick up take-out so she asked the restaurant to come the her house in Calabasas and prepare food for her and 5-10 of her friends. Well, the restaurant sent a chef along with a $5,000.00 bill! Sometimes celebrities are NOT just like us!

Patti Labelle tossed a fan off stage in Vancouver during her show. She asked a couple up on stage to sing and dance with her and while doing this, the male fan started unbuttoning his shirt! This is a big no-no in front of Diva Patti- no undressing! She went on a tirade throwing him off stage, and even started dissing Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj (not in attendance) for not wearing enough clothes on stage!

Kanye West got a glowing report from an LA judge, and it’s a good thing with his anticipated presidential run in 2020! Kanye was ordered to do community service as a result of his attack on a paparazzi at LAX Airport that resulted in a charge of battery. The judge ordered Kanye to do 240 hours at the Los Angeles Trade Technical College in the fashion design program. The Dean at the college wrote a letter to the judge saying “the contribution of the hands on community service Mr. West has completed with our school has been a great benefit to our students and school.”  Additionally the dean noted that Kanye actually ended up doing 262 hours at the school!

The MTV Europe Music Awards were just announced and Taylor Swift received a record nine nominations. She received three alone for her song ‘Bad Blood’- Best Video, Best Collaboration, and Best Song. She will be up against Justin Bieber in most categories as he has six nominations. The ceremony will be held next month in Milan, Italy. No host has been announced.

Prince Harry returned to the UK to celebrate his 31st birthday after spending the summer working on conservation programs in Africa. My sources in London told me no one really ask about the conservation programs…all they wanted to ask Harry about was the new beard he was sporting!

Justin Bieber appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show and Ellen asked him about what everyone is thinking: Is his new song ‘What Do You Mean’ about Selena Gomez? He tried to dodge the question numerous times, but Ellen was not giving up! Finally Justin responded by saying, “I wrote the song for women in general”. I am taking that to mean – YES! this is about Selena Gomez! #duh

SCANDAL!-Mindy Kaling has a new book out, ‘Why Not Me’! and in the book she talks about a year long fling with an aide to President Obama. She never specifically names the aide, but does say he has glasses and blue eyes (I bet he read the book and now has contacts to stay undercover!). She said the two met at a fundraiser in New York and it went from there to her attending some of DC’s hottest parties, a trip to the White House to meet President Obama and a “late night of passion”! I bet this makes Shonda Rhimes so happy…this is straight from an episode of Scandal, right!?

It’s been non-stop celebrity spotting at New York Fashion Week (NYFW)! Victoria Beckham was supported at the runway show of her Spring/Summer 2016 Collection by hubby David, and sons Brooklyn (16) and Romeo (13). Seated next to David was the Queen of all things fashion, Anna Wintour (not in Prada!).

Other couples spotted during NYFW, all making out by the way, were Rihanna and Travis Scott, at New York hot spot 40/40 Club (I am calling these two officially a new hot Hollywood couple – they have officially gone over my 5 make-out sightings rule!), Tyga and Kylie Jenner, and new couple The Weeknd and Bella Hadid!

My sources in Hollywood caught Katie Holmes sneaking into boyfriend (Katie come on…this IS what he is!) Jamie Foxx’s hotel in LA in wearing a disguise of sunglasses and a wig! #disguisedidnotwork

The hit FOX drama may be starting soon, but Empire star Terrence Howard claims he has yet to receive a paycheck for his work on the show. This is not FOX’s fault, yet he states is because his ex-wife is disputing what she feels she is owed in a divorce settlement (remember California is a 50/50 state). The judge in the case has order all his wages garnished until the issue is resolved. I bet the writers on the show wished they would have come up with a story line this good!

Chris Brown won joint custody of his adorable daughter Royalty with baby mama Nia Guzman. It is temporary as the judge did order them to go into mediation within 12 days to determine long term custody and a support ($!) agreement. If they cannot reach an agreement, it will go to a full trail.  During the hearing Nia’s attorneys did pull a sneak attack and requested that the judge order Chris to submit to random drug test. Well, the judge agreed to that and ordered the first one on the spot making Chris give both a hair and urine sample. No word yet on the results. Additionally, the judge ordered that anytime Chris has Royalty his mother must be present. Until a long term agreement is reached the couple now must rotate custody of the child every four days.

Fans posted concern on Lindsay Lohan’s Instagram Saturday night after she went on a strange and lengthy rant saying things such as “Michael Jackson is my only real private friend”, “please let me be forgiven”, “What we think in America is not always clear, we don’t have @peta commercials in the U.S./you just kill deer…”, and “I’m a girl with a reputation mislead…like a diamond in the rough”.  As of now there has been no explanation to what all of this meant or why she posted all of this. Let’s just hope she is doing ok!

Party Pooper! Queen Elizabeth II passed her great-great-grandmother for having the longest reign in British history at just over 63 years and six months, and she asked that this historic moment be celebrated with no “fuss” or party! She ascended to the throne when she was only 25.  Honestly, she is the only Queen I know who does not like a party for any and every occasion!

Taylor Swift has dethroned Kim Kardashian as the person with most Instagram followers! (I am sure this will all change once Kanye is elected President!) Swift now has 45.5 million followers, and Kardashian 45.4. Kim only held the title a few weeks when she surpassed Beyoncé to take over the top spot. Others in the Top 10 include: Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Nicki Minaj! Follow me @stevekemble.

Tom Brady shot down rumors that his marriage to super model Gisele Bundchen is deflating. Rumors surfaced that he was about to fumble his marriage during the tension of his Deflate gate hearings with the NFL. Tom stated his relationship is “in a great place, and there is no bigger supporter I have than her.” Awwwww!

A British man has been sentenced to four months in jail for calling Emergency Services and pretending to be Nicki Minaj. The man claimed there was a poltergeist in his house! Oh My! It goes without saying they take this very seriously across the pond! Minaj has had no comment on the matter, and that in itself is quite unusual!

My sources are telling me that Super Bowl officials are considering Bruno Mars to once again perform during the Super Bowl halftime show.  Super Bowl 50 will take place in Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara on February 7, 2016. Only Katy Perry has gotten more television viewers than Mars in the history of the Super Bowl halftime shows. If selected, Mars would join a very elite group of others who have performed twice including Nelly, Justin Timberlake and Gloria Estefan. As I reported earlier officials were trying to secure Taylor Swift (easily the most popular pop star in the world), but ran into issues with the Super Bowl halftime being sponsored by Pepsi and Swift having an endorsement from Diet Coke.

So thrilled that Vanessa Williams has been ask to be a judge for the upcoming Miss America pageant. Williams crowned in 1993 was forced to resign 10 months into her reign after nude photos appeared in Penthouse magazine. At that time all involved thought she staged a legal battle to keep her crown, it would have been detrimental to her career. She obviously had wise counsel and has had a fabulous career!

Contrary to popular spoofs, stars may NOT be just like us…in contact with my sources throughout the holiday weekend; I found lots of stars who WERE WORKING OVER THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND!!! Oh My! These are indeed tough times! On movie and TV filming sets we found- Julia Roberts, Claire Danes, Ben Stiller, Jamie Alexander, Rebel Wilson, Rachel McAdams and Colin Farrell (those two were in a scene together!), Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Lena Dunham, Jude Law and Jennifer Lopez. On concert stages we found- Rhianna, Beyonce (Nicki Minaj was actually ‘fan girling in her audience’, along with hubby Jay Z!) , Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Kayne West and Luke Bryan and Katy Perry (who also posted a funny Instagram video of her falling off her Segway at the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada dessert!. Now granted if you had 7 houses, 12 cars and 2 jets you might have been working over the Labor Day holiday too!

Nick Jonas dropped a new track ‘Area Code’ over the Labor Day weekend and it seems he is making a reference to ex Selena Gomez (remember the days of Nelena?) In his song he specifically uses the title of Selena’s summer hit ‘Good For You’. Nick sings, “You say I have never been GOOD FOR YOU, you can’t deny I gave it GOOD FOR YOU”!  Hmmmm, call me crazy but it seems Nick is using something he learned from Selena’s bestie Taylor Swift on how to get back at an ex through a song! Nick, you will need to get in line behind the Biebs! Just sayin’!

50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) as I reported recently filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy. My sources are telling me he told them, he filed for “strategic business reasons”. Well this weekend 50 Cent himself posted a video on Instagram show the “new crib” he is building in Africa! It is a huge mansion, and on the video he says he is going to host the “craziest housewarming party ever”.  Not that I am a crystal ball reader, but I am going to go out on a limb and say 50 Cent will probably see this video again during his upcoming bankruptcy court date!!

Caitlyn Jenner has proclaimed her style icon is Angelina Jolie! You will recall she looked very Angelina at the ESPYS in that gorgeous white wrap Versace gown. Why, she wisely chose Angelina’s stylist of choice Jen Rade to style her outfit for her first big public outing! My sources spotted Caitlyn in Malibu on Saturday in skin tight jeans and a white sweater they say looking fabulous! She was dining with Buzz Kissinger who wrote the Vanity Fair article on the former Olympian. What I am most anxious for is a ‘Who Wore It Best’ showdown with Kris Jenner. You will recall on an episode of ‘I Am Cait’ step daughter Kim Kardashian West was helping Caitlyn organize her closet and noticed a Tom Ford dress and said “Mom has this same dress”! Can you imagine Kris and Caitlyn arriving in the same Tom Ford dress…this is gonna be good!

Chris Brown is set to meet his ex- Nia Guzman in court in two weeks over custody of Royalty (could that tiny tot be anymore adorable!) In preparation for the court hearing in which Chris is seeking joint custody he has hired 5 additional bodyguards to accompany him and Royalty on his ‘One Hell of a Night’ tour, in hopes it will convince the judge he can handle and care for her safety while she travels with him on tour. You have been warned, step away from Chris’s adorable baby girl!

A Dose of Sass August 13th, 2015

Posted in: Dose of Sass

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:

Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford was ordered by a judge in New York (which she now resides most of the time) in what is turning out to be one of the biggest international custody cases of all time, to return her two children to her ex-husband German businessman, Daniel Giersch, in Monaco where they have resided since 2012. Her kids left immediately with her ex’s Mother to fly 4,000 miles home to Monaco. Giersch claims she defied a European court order and she should have sent the children home four days ago after visitation, so he claims she essentially kidnapped them. Understandably Kelly was shaken after the ruling and said only, “I have no words”, then broke down in tears.  However yesterday Kelly said “what the judge did yesterday was shocking, illegal and abusive to my children. Without any legal authority, a judge from the lowest ranking court in the state court system violated the highest ranking federal constitutional rights of my American citizen children.” Another hearing is scheduled regarding the issue of joint custody on September 3, in Monaco. Her ex-husband has VISA issues in the United States, and a judge enforced a court order giving Daniel the right to keep the children in Monaco while he works out residency issues in the US.

Pop-star Meghan Trainor announced via Instagram that she has to cancel the rest of her Train Tour, which was supposed to last through mid-September. She revealed that her vocal chords have suffered another hemorrhage. She went further to say she has been taking precautions, yet a second case of bronchitis caused another injury. She stated she will have surgery and “finally fix this once and for all, and come back even stronger”. Wishing you a very speedy recovery Meghan!

As I reported earlier Sam Smith also had surgery on his vocal chords a few months ago, and just yesterday postponed another concert on his tour. He had resumed since this surgery but doctors are now saying he could damage his chords again, if he does not rest more in between shows. Sam sent a note to his fans saying, “I can’t wait to play for you in a few weeks. And again, I am very sorry.”

Katy Perry hinted on Instagram that she could be working on a holiday album! She shared a brief clip that has four men wearing masks and bright-colored sweaters sitting next to a Christmas tree!!!! Dear Katy, you better not attempt any of Mariah Carey’s holiday classic’s…we don’t want to upset Mariah, oh my!

Excited to report that Britney Spears will be appearing on an episode of ‘Jane the Virgin’ on the CW. She will play the nemesis of Jane’s father, who is a telenovela star. Britney is no stranger to sitcom’s having been in episodes of ‘Will & Grace’, ‘Glee’, and ‘How I Met Your Mother’. The second season of ‘Jane the Virgin’ returns October 12 and Britney will appear in the fifth episode.

Pink has recorded a new theme for ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’. Ellen shared a video of Pink in the studio with her daughter recording a revamped version of the theme which is tilted ‘Today’s the Day’.  Ellen returns on September 8th for her 13th season!

The Fab 3: Top 2015 Fall Trends

Posted in: CORT Postings

Greetings Sassies!

The sizzling summer season is quickly passing us by and you know what that means…the fabulous fall season is almost here!  From pumpkin lattes to décor, I love ALL things fall.  The 2015 fall season has its own fierce set of trends that are sure to make your events as fabulous as ever! My good friends at CORT are here to give you the inside scoop on the three biggest trends my sassies should know about this fall season!

1Mod is the new Fab

Mod is in this fall season! And by mod, I mean modular!  Modular furniture is not only fabulous but functional. Sassies, you can’t beat that two for one deal!  Give your fab clients the option to maximize their space by creating custom seating with modular furniture.  CORT has fierce modular pieces such as the Endless Heathrow, and South Beach collections.  Looking to have a posh outdoor fall party? You can’t miss with the indoor/outdoor Boca Collection that can be configured for any size outdoor space.

Fairy Tales? Oh My!

Sassies, who doesn’t love a good fairy tale?!  Don’t pass on the opportunity to create your own fairy tale theme this fall season!  Rustic décor is so last season.  To make your fairy tale a reality, pair clean whites and neutral tones with pastels and greenery to create an otherworldly ambiance that would put even the most fabulous Disney princess to shame (I’m talking to you Queen Elsa!). Tufted furniture is a perfect fit for a fairytale theme.  The French and Victorian inspired CORT Napoleon Chaise Lounge is perfect for a magical ball or small affair.   Iconic white pieces from the Roma collection would be perfect for a posh royal affair.  Let your fabulous fairy tale fantasies run wild this season!

Fierce Customization

Wouldn’t the world be a better place if you could customize everything in your life? You love this couch, but if only it was in another color.  I love this color of pant, if only they were in a different style!  I love this bar…if only I could put my logo on it! Pause! Now you can sassies! Brand strategy and implementation is so important and being able to personalize an event to reflect your clients company culture and vibe can take an event from drab to FAB instantly!  Serving tasty drinks at your fall extravaganza?  Check out the CORT Luna Bar which has customizable panels to showcase your personal flair!
