Hollywood Update, November 23


Here’s your weekly recap of the recent Hollywood happenings:

Hollywood Connections and Splits

Kat Von D's on again, off again guy, Deadmau5Kat Von D and Deadmau5 are back together. I won’t lie. I didn’t know they broke up. Heck, I didn’t know they were even together TO break up! These are two celebs that I don’t get as individuals. As a couple though, somehow they make sense to me.

Week In Television

666 Park Avenue and Partners have been cancelled. Both of these shows had fantastic actors that drew me to the show, and kept me watching week after week even though I didn’t really like the shows themselves. Apparently strong actors were just not enough for the majority of viewers.

The rumors that Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile were not returning for Real Housewives of New Jersey Season Five are now said to be false. This means we’re going to get to see Caroline go head to head with Danielle Staub. I don’t even know what to expect from this season, I’m just hoping no one ends up injured.

This was a big week of confessions for the premium channels. Beware! Spoilers ahead!

On Dexter, Deb confessed to Dexter that she came to the church that night to tell him that she was in love with him. This is the one plot line that I just still can’t wrap my head around. I didn’t know what could possibly happen on the show once Deb discovered Dexter’s secret life, but it has only made the show more interesting. We only have a handful of episodes left, so I can’t wait to see where they go after this confession. One thing we can be sure of is that Dexter and Deb’s relationship will never be the same after that confession.

With no one willing to support him, other than his own crew, Nucky started planning his war against Gyp, this week on Boardwalk Empire. Margaret confessed to Owen that she was pregnant with his baby. At the end of the episode, Owen’s body was delivered to the suite at the Ritz Carlton. Nucky was surprised to see Margaret’s uncontrollable emotional reaction to seeing Owen’s body. Will she tell Nucky the baby was Owen’s? Will Nucky or Gyp survive the war? I have too many questions and only two episodes for them to answer them all.

Celebrity Tidbits & Ramblings

It turns out that celebrities have family holiday drama just like the rest of us. Halle Berry’s ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry dropped their daughter off at Halle’s house to spend Thanksgiving with her mom. The details are sketchy, but somehow an altercation started between Gabriel and Halle’s new fiancé Olivier Martinez. It ended with both men in the hospital and a restraining order against Gabriel requiring him to stay away from Halle, Olivier and Gabriel’s own daughter Nahla.

ALSO ON PRIME PARENTS CLUB : Movie Review | A Late Quartet

Christina Perri released a new music video this week for her song Something About December. I’ve been a fan of Nick Perri and Christina Perri for years. The siblings wrote this song together and the video features clips of home movies from when they were kids. Christina has such an old and soulful voice, which makes her the perfect singer to do a good Christmas album. I’m not too keen on Christmas music, but Christina has a way of making anyone want to listen to Christmas music year round.

What was the most surprising, interesting, shocking or even boring Hollywood tidbit for you this week?

      My first reaction was “I wonder what it’s like to have two men (not to mention two men that look like THAT) fight over you?” Then when I saw that the restraining order kept him away from his daughter I got really sad thinking that she may have witnessed part or all of what happened. :-(

      That seems to be the only thing that is not in dispute. There is no official word, but everything I’ve read cites multiple sources that say that she has been offered a contract and she is deciding if it will be full or part time. They all say she will be filming at least some episodes.

      Hahahaha. Actually I was watching a clip of an interview with Kristen Stewart and she was drawing questions out of a fish bowl to answer. There was a question about the Deadmau5 / Kat Von D break up and she didn’t know how to say his name either. The one that baffled me for months was 3oh!3. Yeah that is the band’s *actual* name. :-/
