Here’s your weekly recap of the recent Hollywood happenings:
If you have a teen or pre-teen daughter, you’ve probably already heard that Justin Bieber is single again. Sources say that his split from Selena Gomez was caused by conflicting schedules. If you’re keeping track, that is break-up #3 in as many weeks blamed on busy schedules.
Kristin Chenoweth is reportedly dating Jake Pavelka. They make such a pretty couple! I think it is pretty much impossible to not love Kristen Chenoweth. I’m excited to see her dating. I won’t lie. I can’t wait to see the Kristen Chenoweth wedding, complete with Maddie dressed up and acting as flower girl!
This week on Homeland Agent Brody was forced to choose between his family and his commitments to the CIA. This was the first week that we were able to see the more human side to Brody. If you weren’t already rooting for another Carrie/Brody hook-up, this week was probably enough to make you reconsider your position. They are the TV couple that you can’t help but want to see together, but will still leave you yelling at Carrie through the TV that she is making a mistake when they do finally get together.
American Horror Story has been picked up for a third season! The announcement came the day after the big episode where serial murder Bloody Face was revealed. I have to tell you, I did NOT see this one coming. Maybe I should have. Looking back, the signs were all there. Another Briarcliff patient has had a close encounter with what appears to be aliens, and the patient came back claiming to have seen Kit’s wife Alma. I may need to go to Briarcliff for a while, because I’m starting to wonder if they are actually seeing aliens!
The rumors are flying around about who is coming and going from the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile will not be back this season. However the buzz is that Danielle Staub is coming back! Stirring up trouble is a surefire way turn out big ratings and it looks like that may be exactly what producers are aiming for in season five.
Janeane Garofalo found out that she had been married for twenty years and didn’t know it. She went to a drive through wedding chapel with then boyfriend Rob Cohen in Las Vegas when she was drunk. They thought it was all fun and games, because they had not filled out all the paperwork that they thought was required to get married. Turned out the drive through wedding was the real deal. Good thing Rob’s attorney discovered the mistake before he married his fiancé.
A paternity test proved that Lindsey Lohan has a half-sister that Michael Lohan has been denying for 17 years. The whole thing played out on The Trisha Goddard Show in a very Maury Povich type of scenario. But since paternity tests on TV don’t matter without Maury, he stopped by the show to participate.
Lesson of the week: Things that happened 20 years ago will come back to haunt you!
What was the most surprising, interesting, shocking or even boring Hollywood tidbit for you this week?
