Celebrities who want to cheat using the website Ashley Madison just can’t seem to catch a break. First, Josh Duggar gets caught trying to cheat on his wife and now he’s being called “stupid” indirectly by The Guardian. The article “Ashley Madison Has a Stupidity Factor – Men” was written by Barbara Ellen recently. She might have a point. It’s not that hard to google the words “how to hide my identity online” or make a fake email account that you can direct all of your cheater accounts to. Fake email addresses are also great for tricking your friends into thinking it is you or letting spam accumulate into that inbox while saving space for your real email address. Seriously, these are some extremely dumb celebrities.
They were both at the MTV Video Music Awards last night. But only one of them called the other one “stupid.” According to Celebuzz, Miley Cyrus called Justin Bieber stupid and had some advice for him back in 2013! “I always tell him just to be cool and not talk about it because when you talk it fuels the fire. He’s still stupid though. Everyone does dumb stuff when they are messed up, and he’s done dumb stuff,” said Cyrus. She was probably talking about him peeing in a bucket.
Josh Duggar was on the show “19 Kids and Counting.” Wonkette called Duggar a “moron” when he said, “I think that right now in America there is an agenda to silence people of faith, those who hold dissenting opinion. That’s not what America was founded on. America was founded on respect. Tolerance. And really not discriminating against people based on their religious convictions.” Duggar is going to spend the next six months at a Christian rehab treatment program at Reformers Unanimous after his cheating scandal.
Paris Hilton’s dad owns all of those hotels. So you might not be so generous as to bestow sympathy on her when she talks about how hardworking she is. According to VH1, she said, “There’s much more to life than all of these possessions and everything. And if you want those things, you’re going to have to work yourself, just like I did,” said Hilton. It could be the adult video she filmed or the DJ gigs she could be talking about.
The Wire reported that Alec Baldwin said some harsh things to a paparazzo and it was caught on camera. Instead of a certain word, Baldwin tweeted that he called that person a “fathead.” Then Rich Ferraro from the GLAAD organization told Baldwin that he said an anti-gay epithet and Baldwin apologized. Let’s not forget about all of the mess from the “Word with Friends” game on the plane. Those poor flight attendants!
Ashton Kutcher had no idea that Joe Paterno allegedly ignored the sexual abuse of minors and tweeted, “How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste.” LA Times said that most of the world with access to the Internet or TV knew that Paterno was fired in the wake of a child sex-abuse scandal in which he admitted he was one of the people who knew what was going on.
Farrah Abraham did not know what a feminist was before Cultist asked her, “Do you consider yourself a feminist?” Abraham said, “I’m pretty feminine. I think so.” Cultist said, “Not feminine — feminist.” Abraham replied, “What does that mean, you’re a lesbian or something? What context are you saying it in?” They explained that it was a complicated concept that means women are equal to men. It’s not that complicated if you can just boil it down to gender equality.
John Mayer told Playboy, “Someone asked me the other day, ‘What does it feel like now to have a hood pass? But I said, ‘I can’t really have a hood pass. I’ve never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, ‘We’re full.'” These are not the words of a modest man. Mayer got in trouble for using a racial slur in that same interview and tweeted “I should have never said the world and I will never say it again.”
According to Dlisted, Brooke Hogan said, “You know what? I am actually not that much into voting. I think it’s kinda crazy that a woman is running, because I think that women deal with a lot of emotions and menopause and PMS and stuff. Like, I’m so moody all the time, I know I couldn’t be able to run a country, ’cause I’d be crying one day and yelling at people the next day, ya know?” This was on her show “Brooke Knows Best.”
Mischa Barton is not the most popular actress these days. One time she was. “It kind of irritates me that I’m seen as this pretty face. People also say I’m too thin. The truth is, pretty people aren’t as accepted as other people. It comes with all these stigmas. It’s like, ‘She’s pretty and thin, so she’s got to have problems. She must be anorexic or depressed or bitchy.’ It doesn’t help that my OC character is the pretty girl next door who looks like she has everything, but is totally f–ked up,” said Barton according to E! Online.
Gwyneth Paltrow might be known as Goopy or the conscious uncoupling celebrity. She also got some exposure in the New York Times when they reported, “Even though the actress Gwyneth Paltrow had created a best-selling cookbook and popular lifestyle blog, Mayer, who habitually asked deputies where they attended college, balked at hiring her as a contributing editor for Yahoo Food. According to one executive, Mayer disapproved of the fact that Paltrow did not graduate college.”
Britney Spears has so many memorable quotes that you can’t help but feel sorry for her. The Guardian reported that she said she wasn’t trying to be sexy in the “Baby One More Time” video. She also said, “I do believe in the sanctity of marriage. I totally do,” after her 55 hour marriage to Jason Alexander. Then there was the time she didn’t want to go to Japan. “I’ve never really wanted to go to Japan, simply because I don’t like eating fish and I know that’s very popular out there in Africa.”
According to All Womens Talk, Christina Aguilera once said, “So, where’s the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?” The Cannes Film Festival is held every year in Cannes, France. It shows films from around the world and it was founded in 1946. Luckily for Aguilera, E! Online found that Rita Ora wore a feathery outfit that was similar to Aguilera’s Versace red carpet look from 2010. Get that exposure!
Tara Reid was the lovable drummer in “Josie and the Pussycats,” but what happened to her after that? Did she redeem her image and look for more intelligent roles in Hollywood? Well, she was in “Sharknado” so maybe it’s not all bad. According to Hollyscoop, Reid said, “I make Jessica Simpson look like a rock scientist.” Daily Mail called her “painfully thin” in a recent outdoor pic. Everyone is ready and waiting to see what happens to her in “Sharknado 3.”
Kelly Osbourne said on “The View” something very bad. “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump? In the sense that…you know what I mean? But I’m saying that in L.A., they always…” Things got so bad that Rosie Perez allegedly stormed off the set and executives tried to get her to apologize. Then Perez left the show and Perez was not present for the remaining shows.
A few fun tweets from Jaden Smith are enough to convince you of his intelligence. “We need to stop teaching the youth about the past and encourage them to change the future… There is no nutrients in our food anymore or in our soil our in our water… If everybody in the world dropped out of school we would have a much more intelligent society… If newborn babies could speak they would be the most intelligent being on planet Earth.” Will Smith did a great job.
Dr. Oz: “I’m Very Concerned About the Corona Virus, Here’s Why”
While coronaviruses have been known to medical science since the 1960s, few have been anywhere near as dangerous as this new one from the market in Wuhan China.
A coronavirus is typified by its protective shell which resembles a crown or a halo under a microscope. That is where it gets its name. The average coronavirus does little more than cause the symptoms of the common cold, sniffles, cough, flu-like symptoms and so on. Part of the reason that these viruses are so hard to prevent from causing millions of colds each year is their protective shell. They can remain on a surface for hours, sometimes days, before they begin to lose structural integrity. But few trigger symptoms as severe as this one known as 2019-nCoV.
Dr. Oz had this to say about what has become known as the Wuhan Coronavirus, “It’s alarming, this is the big news today, the Chinese leadership is starting to say ‘this incubation period is a lot longer than we thought.’”
If this report is true, it means that many, many more people may be infected than have been reported- or even anticipated. It means that people could be walking around, infected, and not even know it- not taking precautions and spreading the virus everywhere they go. That means anyone who has recently returned from the area around the Wuhan market, where the outbreak started, could be carrying the disease.
At the time of this writing, the total enumerated infection count is over 1,800. The total deaths are approaching 200. Other researchers are suggesting that this virus has a rapid mutation rate. That is particularly terrifying because it is what made the HIV-AIDS virus so difficult to treat.
At present, the World Health Organization had laid down a series of suggestions to help people avoid infection.
They advise that anyone who may come into contact with the virus should:
- Wash their hands frequently
- Maintain good sanitation on and around all frequently used objects and surfaces
- Avoid centers of mass travel such as airports
- Sneeze and cough into the elbow or a tissue
- Take immunity-boosting supplements like vitamin C
The source of the infection is believed to have come from a specific market in Wuhan, where live animals were kept in stalls for sale and trade. Researchers believe the virus came from either a snake or a bat. The initial cases of illness were reported in December 2019 by employees of the Wuhan market. That market is now shut down for the foreseeable future.
As health officials struggle to understand the virus and contain its progress, other researchers are asking even more startling questions. The shell of this virus is similar to the shell of a virus created in a university research lab in 2015 at the University of North Carolina. What’s more, there is a known military biological weapons lab in Wuhan China.
If these reports are true, it could have serious implications, not only for global health- but for relations between the US and China.
Big Brother Contestants Make How Much on the Show?!?
Big Brother has been a wildly popular, dramatic reality TV game show since 2000. Audiences are captivated by the twists, the turns, the strange alliances, and the betrayals. The show is based on a Dutch program with the same premise which also became wildly popular in Spain and Germany before the reboot came to America.
As the US version grew in popularity, the producers eventually made it possible for fans to watch the contestants on a non-live streaming video feed available 24 hours a day seven days a week. Yes, the contestants on Big Brother are now on display to be viewed by anyone in the world at every waking moment. How they avoid getting caught in their all-togethers or during toilet breaks, we don’t know. Maybe they have certain camera-safe areas to which they can retreat.
Later on, the house the Big Brother contestants live in was stripped of all communication devices- depriving them of contact with the outside world. That is- except for the live feeds the public has unfettered access to. So, if one of them was being held hostage, we suppose they could let us know.
So the question came up of, how much do the contestants really earn? By playing the game they have the chance to make friends, or enemies, become Internet sensations, and to win half a million dollars. But, given everything they have to put up with; being ripped out of their lives, possibly losing jobs, experiencing the anguish of betrayal- all while being on public display- do they get anything else?
According to a report by Reality Blurred, a site that follows the happenings of reality TV stars, programs, and related matters- the contestants “[…] receive $750 per week that they’re in the house.”
Any pay they receive while in the jury house is harder to account for since nothing about it appears on the contract. However, it is believed that contestants receive consolation prizes during their time out of the main house. It also seems reasonable that the consolation prizes received in the jury house should be worth at least $500 since keeping them away from other gainful employment for less than that would be near to slavery. (We’re looking at you, jury duty.)
However, while the big prize on Big Brother is a cool half-million on top of what the contestants earn as their weekly salary, in reality- they have much more to gain in Internet stardom.
Many former Big Brother players have gone on to lucrative careers as influencers on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and other social media sites. While any gains from that are unlikely to be as exhilarating as half a million in fast cash- the best of them certainly earn more than that over the long term.
So, it would appear that our curiosity MacGuffins on Big Brother are at least doing as well as someone earning minimum wage- while essentially fooling around Truman Show style.
Single Mom Irina Shayk, Happy Single
Those in the public spotlight seem to be an open book. Their every move seems to is covered by gossip sites. Their whereabouts are nearly always and it seems as if we are updated on who’s dating who and what luxurious vacation they are on.
That’s why it is surprising that Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper kept their relationship under wraps for so long, dating all the way back to 2015. The couple was first spotted together after the actor and model were first seen in 2015. Cooper split from Suki Waterhouse and Shayk ended her five-year relationship with soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.
The couple was first seen together at a Broadway show, then shortly thereafter, the White House Correspondents’ dinner. Things seemed to move quickly from there. Within months the couple moved in together, soon they announced they were expecting.
Work Gets in the Way:
Irina, who has been quiet about her relationship and breakup with Bradley Cooper, recently spoke up about their relationship.
The couple ended their relationship in 2019, on the heels of the release of the stars’ remake of a Star is Born. The on-screen chemistry between Bradley Cooper and his co-star, Stefani Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, sent tongues wagging. Rumors were raging that the two co-stars were in a relationship based on their pationate adaption of the film.
Irina set the record straight in some recent interviews about the end of their relationship. According to Shayk, the couple hadn’t been getting along for quite some time. After the baby was born, Shayk was hoping that Cooper would put their family first and slow down his busy working schedule. She was secretly hoping that after A Star is Born was released and the promotional tour was over, he would spend more time at home. That was not the case.
Irina, 33, was ready to settle into family life. This included getting married and more children. But the marriage never happened, and Cooper’s work schedule was as busy as ever.
Irina felt that her expectations weren’t met and she didn’t have the commitment level she wanted from Cooper. Shortly after the Award season in June 2019, the news broke that the couple had split. Irina had taken baby Lea and moved out of the couples Los Angeles home.At first, the separation was thought to be temporary. Both partners have decided that they are better apart than together.
The couple continues to co-parent their daughter, but it seems like the couple are happty being apart. They both seem to be quite content focusing on their child and carreers.
Irina recently said that “life without Cooper” and being a single mom is “new ground.” She also said that just because two people are great on their own, they are not always good together.
Irina is a strong woman, and while she often feels overwhelmed being a single-mom, she’s ready for the challenge. Both parents are dedicated to doing what is best for their child and are curently working on a visitation schedule.
