Is David Beckham Gearing Up For A Divorce?

Could my future ex-husband really be on the market soon? By all accounts David and Victoria Beckham are one of the most happily married in the entertainment industry. Yet divorce rumors are circulating around them like I circle Matthew Stafford (he's the quarterback for the Detroit Lions). Are they heading for a divorce? A trusted source indicates that yes they are.

Last week David Beckham was seen out with his kids, sans Posh Spice. This of course led to the current rumors of divorce. Now that is enough to give me hope that the retired soccer player will open his eyes and realize that me and Matt are nothing more than smoke and mirrors, I'm really waiting for him. Our friends over at Blind Gossip say that I shouldn't give up hope that he will see through my charade. Apparently Drake and Serena are better at the fake relationship game than I am. Anyways, BG reveals this: "While they appear to be a united team in front of the camera, they spend practically no time together in private. We don’t know exactly when they will announce their split… but it is coming!" And I am readying myself for this event!!!

The summer of break ups has been harsh but really fair. I mean when David Beckham is single, how can it be considered anything but a positive thing?

Drake And Serena Are A Fake Couple

Yes I know what you're thinking "aren't all Hollywood couples fake?" To which I would reply, hush because if people realize this, then I have nothing to write about and then my blog and chances at writing for The Enquirer go away. Let's get back to Drake and Serena Williams lie telling about liking one another in the same way that I like Jussie Smollett.

According to Hollywood Street King, both Drake and Serena like people of the same sex. With Drake, I had always hoped that he was a friend of Elton. I mean that body, that voice, he might give Jussie a run for his money as the #1 boo. And Serena, well if she's a lesbian I know quite a few girls that would line up to be with her. I mean seriously, if one more lesbian asks me if Serena is really gay and to pass their number on to her, I will scream so loud that it will make Ellen dance.

Ok so I was just told that Ellen always dances, but let's just focus on the gossip here. An industry insider tells HSK, "She’s a lesbian and he’s a bisexual dude who f*cks instagram h*es & BBWs to look like he’s a stud but he’s really a f*g." I do not agree with the F word in their statement but the over all the statement makes sense. Drake's management team is too controlling of his image and they probably make him screw those girls or at least pretend to. We all know that he really wants to jump on me, er I mean some famous dude.... but really me. 

Nothing bad would happen if either of them came out. After all look at Ellen/Chris Colfer/Matt Bomer/Jussie/Neil Patrick Harris, the list could go on and on. Being gay has not hurt any of their careers. In fact some of them are seeing the best times in their careers. Come out Drake and my number is (Number Deleted due to stalkers and stuff).

Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg In Power Struggle

Another season of The View will be debuting soon, but it is the same old storyline that is playing out in the media. Producers bring in new (or returning) co-hosts and then there is a problem with them and Whoopi Goldberg. Last year around this time, the story was the feud between Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi, and the fight for the moderator's chair. This time the rehashed story stars Joy Behar and Whoopi but with a little twist in there.

If you read the gossip blogs regularly like I do, then you know that Whoopi is basically done with this travesty of a show. However she wants to keep her nice little paycheck coming in, so she shows up everyday and does her thing. When Joy was first approached about coming back, she wanted the moderator's chair for herself but producers knew that Whoopi would never go for that. Joy walked away from the table but then producers had a grand idea: Live shows on Fridays. Whoopi balked and threatened to enforced a clause in her contract that said she didn't have to work on Fridays. Then she turned to new co-hosts Raven Symone and Michelle Collins to use the same reason for not working on Fridays. They declined since they are the new girls on the block and don't want to piss off the producers. Enter Joy and a promise that she would be the moderator on Fridays. Whoopi is not happy about this, though there doesn't seem to be much she can do about it.

Also adding fuel to this feud is the fact that Whoopi has pretty much dictated what segments would be done and what topics would be covered in Hot Topics. However Joy is used to everything being more democratic and every co-host having a say. This seems to be an issue that will divide the other co-hosts during this season. However unlike last year, I don't see Joy quitting like Rosie O did. That means we have at least 9 months of behind the scenes feud stories ahead of us.

For those wondering, I do think there will be a season 20. However I think that will be announced as the last season. Nothing that ABC has done so far has invigorated the show the way Rosie did during her first tenure. What they should do is bring back the greatest co-hosts from over the years to host the show. 

Will There Be Season Two of I Am Cait?

Yes I am officially back from my self imposed hiatus. And I figured what better way to kick off the new season than with what I hope will become the standard for articles on GG going forward. And speaking of new seasons, fans of Caitlyn Jenner are wondering if there will be a season 2 of her reality show, I am Cait. Yes that was a horrible segue but let's just move past that alright. Anyways the conversation has turned into a debate about whether Caitlyn will get another season or not.

On the one hand the premiere numbers were phenomenal. 2.7 million people tuned in to watch the program and witness history in the making. But then something happened along the way, the numbers kept dropping and dropping. Headlines everywhere screamed at what a failure the show is and that without ex-wife Kris, Caitlyn would not have an entertainment career. Even Caitlyn's best friend isn't sure what is going on with the future of the show. Jenny Boylan (Cait's BFF) says "I'd be shocked if there wasn't a season 2, but then nothing shocks me anymore."  So what's the real story?

Networks don't make judgements on series based on Live and Same Day ratings anymore. While that is the coveted number, especially for advertisers, that is not the full story of whether or not the show is successful. Now they take into account DVRs, web views, and Ondemand numbers to see if people are watching the show and if it will be profitable. I am going to go out on a limb and say that no there won't be a season 2 of I am Cait. The social media buzz isn't there and that is what usually indicates that a show is making waves with viewers, think Pretty Little Liars or Scandal. Does this mean that Caitlyn won't have a career in Hollywood? No but it does mean that she needs to think about the type of show that she wants to do.

And Josh Duggar Confesses To Cheating

Not that there was any doubt about this but... Here is Josh's full confession:

I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.

I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.

I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust.
The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings.

As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example.

I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time.

Donald Trump Is Delusional

There are many things that can be said about Donald Trump. Republican Frontrunner, Multi-Billionaire, Game Changer. These are things that are true and can be factually proven without a doubt. You could also make fun of his hair and his limited vocabulary, but really those are more opinion than fact. Another fact that I think we can all agree on is that Donald Trump is no Channing Tatum, the thing that makes him any sort of attractive is his bank account.

During an interview with Hollywood Reporter, the journalist asked Trump who should play him in the inevitable movie about this upcoming election. The answer that The Donald gave not only made me physically ill but makes no sense in the real world. Here is what he said, "Somebody really, really handsome. That's the only thing that matters. I don't care if he can act well. He's got to be really, really good-looking. OK?" There goes The Great Pumpkin's (from the Charlie Brown) chance to have a comeback and an Emmy nomination. So selfish Donald! Won't somebody think of The Great Pumpkin?!

I kid! Though I did think it would be kind of cool is Rosie O'Donnell played Trump in the movie. Think of the accolades that she would get and of course she had talent. Of course none of that matters to Trump, he just cares about what the person looks like. Normally I would expect a slew of my words were taken out of context press releases but since that isn't Trump's style, we can sit back and enjoy this. 

Who do you think should play Donald in the movie?

Josh Duggar Had An Ashley Madison Account and The Internet is Happy about It

Did you miss me Gossipers? I wasn't on some protracted vacation or in rehab. I've been working on fiction and planning a major reboot of GG. However some stories are just too good to pass up on. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner divorcing is so passe. Anything that comes out of Donald Trump's mouth is gold but almost as overexposed as the Kardashians. But Josh Duggar having 2 different accounts on Ashley Madison, well now that is enough to make me put off the reboot.

So what was Josh_The_Man aka Ready4ThisDC aka Duggar looking for. Well apparently nothing too extreme, just some hand holding and cuddling. According to the info obtained from the Ashely Madison information dump, this is what he wanted: “Conventional Sex,” Experimenting with Sex Toys,” One-Night Stands,” “Open to Experimentation,” “Gentleness,” “Good With Your Hands,” Sensual Massage,” “Extended Foreplay/Teasing,” “Bubble Bath for 2,” “Likes to Give Oral Sex,” “Likes to Receive Oral Sex,” “Someone I Can Teach,” “Someone Who Can Teach Me,” “Kissing,” “Cuddling & Hugging,” “Sharing Fantasies,” “Sex Talk.” Basically things that every 20 year old girl wants from her boyfriend. Is Josh Duggar really a sorority girl looking for her frat boy?

Even better than the story itself though, is the reaction it has elicited from commenters around the web. One poster from DListed. Jezza, says "Hey, Michelle and Jim Bob - This is what happens when you turn a vajayjay into a pez dispenser for babies and let the kids raise each other!" And that is one of the nicest comments around, There were a ton of "this is my Christmas" and my personal favorite, which I cannot find at the moment, "This is better than Empire and Scandal combined. Shonda Rhimes better put a show like this into production fast!" Unlike when the first scandal about Josh molesting his sisters and a babysitter, I have not seen one post defending the poor "Teddy Bear in bed." 

What do you think of the newest scandal surrounding Josh Duggar?

Breaking: States Cannot Ban Same Sex Marriage

Happy day! The Supreme Court has issued it's ruling on marriage equality and they have voted in favor of love. In a 5-4 vote the nation's highest court has effectively struck down the bans on same sex marriage. 

This is a breaking story and I will update with more information as it becomes available

The Real Reason For The Savage Garden Split

Whenever an uber successful band splits, I think we all hope for some kind of dramatic reason for it. Like you know one band member slept with anothers partner or they were lovers and there was a nasty fight, where one left the hotel room and hooked up with a groupie. That doesn't seem to be the case with Savage Garden though. Instead it's a boring reason of them just growing apart and wanting different things.

Last week the Duo of Darren Hayes and Daniel Jones, better known as Savage Garden released a new CD called The Singles. Yea I know I wish they would put out new music too but it's not going to happen. The most that we can hope for right now is a musical based on their music, and since Darren Hayes is married to a writer maybe it will happen. Of course i could always do it too... I would love to do it. I'm working on it right now. Anyways. Darren was doing press for the new CD and finally revealed what happened. In his own words, “The thing with a band is it really is a marriage,” Hayes says. “In our case we had a marriage that ended in divorce. People don’t get married by accident and they don’t get divorced by accident. There are reasons why musical relationships are magical and those same reasons are sometimes why they can’t last. I’ve softened a lot to the (re-formation) question nowadays. I take it as a huge compliment when people ask if we’ll get back together. What they are really saying is you changed my life. I have wonderful memories associated with what you did back then. We’ve also been lucky in that people also respect it ended for a reason. You’d no sooner ask a couple who broke up to get back together just because you liked going to the movies with them." It's like a part of the 90's died and there is no hope of getting them back. 

Thankfully though, we still have the music that they did make while they were together. Daniel has admitted that he left the band because he didn't want the fame that was attached to being part of one of the most successful groups ever. And just because I'm a sap and want to take you all down memory lane, here is the video for "I want you".

Tom From Myspace Is A Photographer Now

Tom Anderson was everyone's first friend on Myspace. At one time he was probably the most well known social media guy around, but then Facebook happened and nobody remembered poor Tom. Well I can't exactly say that he's poor, according to various sites he's worth anywhere from $50 million to $60 million. Now instead of working on social media, he has taken up his first passion of photography.

Yesterday news leaked out that Tom posted a selfie of himself on his instagram page. The internet blew up about how good he looks, and man look at that pic. He sure is handsome, and I would just like to let him know that I am single if he wants to hook up. He can take pictures and I can write, it's the perfect scenario. Can you all imagine if Tom and I got married? I mean it would be perfection. I'm sure that some gold digger, who isn't me, already got their claws into him.

What was I saying? Oh yes, Tom is now a photographer. He actually has quite a bit of talent. Click here to go to his Instagram page. Now I am off to find out if he is single or in a relationship. This might be the year I finally get married for the first time. Or not. 

Brandi Glanville Off RHOBH

When I lived with my old roommate, she loved to watch the messes that are the real housewives. Sure they were entertaining and good for some story ideas but as most, if not all of you know, I hate reality TV. One of the things that I noted was that nobody liked Brandi Glanville, even newcomers Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna took an immediate dislike to LeAnn Rimes'  rival. During one of the episodes I turned to my friend and said that there was no way Brandi would survive another season on the show.

How did I know that? Simple, using the logic of soaps, if a character isn't redeemable and/or popular with fans then they have to go. Brandi did herself no favors by being nasty and classless while talking to Lisa Vanderpump. Then to make it worse, she taunted Eileen Davidson in the hopes of making the newbie act like her Days of Our Lives character or something. This did not win her any points with her fellow castmates and they reportedly told producers that they didn't want to film with her anymore.

Another wrinkle to the story is that Kim Richards may not be returning to the show either. Here's the thing, Kim was Brandi's only ally and with her gone, Brandi would literally be in scenes by herself. Like any good soap, I hope that they give the audience a good long time to be happy about Brandi's departure. Though the rumor is that producers may ask her to do occasional guest appearances, but she might not agree to do that.

Let's Talk: Which Gender Makes Better Friends?

It always amazes me how insightful Trevor Donovan is. Not only is he a gorgeous man, but he has a brain underneath that beautiful blond hair of his. This weekend on his Facebook page, the stud asked about which sex would have the longer friendships "In your opinion, who is most likely to keep longer lasting friendships guys or girls?"

I have to say that I feel that I have the perfect mix of guys and girls as friends. Most of my friends have been in my life for 10 or more years. Recently I began talking to my best friend from elementary/middle school. To me it's like no time has passed between us, though we hadn't talked for quite a few years.

What do you think Gossipers? Sound off in the comments!

You Won't Like The Mistress On The Block

Mistresses is the show that keeps on giving. The drama both on screen and off is the stuff of legends, Alyssa Milano was the star for 2 seasons and then mysteriously the show moved filming to Vancouver. That in and of itself isn't really all that notable until you know that in Alyssa's contract was a clause that gave her an out if they moved production out of LA. Why would they do that unless they wanted her out? Anyways with Alyssa out, they had to fill the void and so hired Jennifer Esposito to play a new Mistress.

When a show introduces a new character to replace an old one, they usually go one of two ways. The first is they build the new character with the exact personality of the one they are replacing. Think Vanessa Marcil replacing Tiffany Amber Theissen on 90210. The other way that they can go is to bring in someone with a completely different personality from the character that are replacing. Think Tiffany Amber Thiessen replacing Shannen Doherty on 90210. Producers of Mistresses decided to go with the latter option. TVLine asked if they intentionally made the new character unlikable and here is what they said: "Absolutely. She’s not warm and fuzzy. She’s eccentric, larger-than-life, unpredictable. The key with her is you never truly know what you’re getting. You’re seduced by her one moment and feeling like she’s your best, best friend, and then the next moment you’re wondering if she’s got an agenda. Like the actress herself and her scene work, she keeps you on your toes, and that is what we had intended for the character." This means that this summer will be a great one to be a fan of the little show that could.

Sure I would have went with another actress for the role, someone say that would have made Alyssa really mad but you know that's just me. Shannen Doherty can still get roles if she wants them. Or maybe I should create a role specifically for her. Yes that's what I'll do!!!

Will you be watching Mistresses tonight?

Tony Geary Wanted Genie Francis To Return

Luke and Laura are a classic duo like Romeo and Juliet or Batman and Robin. Yet when Tony Geary announced that he was retiring from General Hospital earlier this year, he made it clear that he did not want the former super couple to reunite because that time had passed. Genie Francis did an interview with TVLine and said that Tony actually asked for her to come back.

Genie recounts how the producers called her and broke the news that Tony had decided to leave, for real this time, and they wanted her to come back. It came as sort of a shock to the popular vet but then the rumors had been around for a while. Here from Genie's own mouth is how things went down: "And they said yes. The next question I had to ask was, ‘Are you sure he wants me to be there?’ Because he’s been very vocal about not wanting it to be Luke and Laura reuniting. My next question was, ‘Is this what Tony wants?’ And they said, ‘Absolutely.’" It actually makes a lot of sense that Tony would want his leading lady back for one more adventure, even if he doesn't think that they should reunite. 

And is it just me or does Genie's response make it seem like there was a falling out with Tony? I mean really even if he didn't want her to come back, the show can offer her a contract without talking to him. However there seems to be something more to it than meets the eye. Or you know maybe it's just the gossip columnist in me, looking for another story. 

Breaking: Charleston Church Shooter Caught, Likely To Be Charged With Hate Crime

After putting out an all points bulletin, police have captured and arrested Dylan Roof. The police put out a description of the car and license plate number, and within hours someone called in with a report that they had seen the suspect heading towards North Carolina.

As mentioned in the post earlier, Federal Prosecutors are investigating and likely going to press Hate Crime charges against the 21 year old. Charleston Mayor Joe Riley released this statement "The only reason someone would walk into a church and shoot people that were praying is hate," 

More to come as this is a breaking and developing story

Jay Leno and David Letterman To Do Reality Show Together?

Their rivalry is one that has fueled a best selling book and countless tabloid covers. No I'm talking about Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, though I would love it if they remade Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. No the rivals that I'm talking about are David Letterman and Jay Leno. Rumors are circulating right now that the former late night show hosts are contemplating doing a reality show together.

When I first saw the headline of the article I read for this story, I thought maybe it'll be something like Keeping Up With The Oldies. But no, Jay and Dave are both old car aficionados and Jay has put together a proposal for a show about old cars and in the vein of Antiques Roadshow. It was unexpected that he would team up with his one time rival but it actually makes sense. The two of them together would be a ratings bonanza, especially if they keep a friendly bickering up. Think Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell during the first seasons of American Idol.  

In any other period of time, it would seem unlikely that a show with such a premise would get picked up at a Broadcast network. Now though there would be a bidding war to see who got it first. Or they could always shop it to Netflix and Hulu as well.

Would you watch a show starring Jay and Dave?

Shooting At South Carolina Church

Last night after a prayer service, a gunmen opened fire on worshippers gathered at Emanuel African Methodist Church. No numbers have been confirmed yet, there are expected to be several casualties in the aftermath of this. One of the victims includes the Reverend Clementa Pinckney, who was also a State Senator. The question that everyone is asking is who would do this and why would they do it?

Dylan Storm Roof is the name that has been released for the suspect, a description has also been made public. The man is white, in his 20's with sandy blond hair, which is cut in a bowl cut style. He has a slender build and was wearing a grey shirt, jeans, and boots. While police were seen taking someone who fit the description into custody, they released a statement saying that they were still looking for the shooter.

Why would someone do this? A lot of people, including the Federal Prosecutor think that it was racially motivated, however according to a survivor of the shooting the motive was revealed by the shooter. He allegedly said “You rape our women and you’re taking over our country — and you have to go,” 

Our hearts and prayers go out to the survivors, the families of the victims, and to the whole community of Charleston.

Madonna's Epic Fail

Rebel Heart is one of the best Madonna albums that I have heard in a long time. I still listen to it all on repeat and love just about every single song on it. Two of my favorite songs are "Joan of Arc", a lovely ballad about not being able to deal with everything but powering through anyways. The other is the campy, fun dance song "Bitch I'm Madonna." It is the video for that song that has led to Madonna's big fail.

So yesterday the video for 'Bitch' was supposed to come out, first via Jay-Z's new venture Tidal and then on Youtube. Fans were displeased that the video would first be out on something that they wanted nothing to do with, one even accused the Material Girl of trying to make the streaming service happen, but most were willing to wait for it. Slowly but surely the media outlets started trotting out their stories about the star packed video for the song. As a good fan I went to each one of them hoping to see the video and then to come back here and gush about it.

At each of the sites though, a funny thing happened. The video didn't work and it still wasn't released to Youtube as of this writing. How in the world does the World's savviest businesswoman expect to launch 'Bitch' and Rebel Heart into the stratosphere if people, every person, doesn't have access to the video? Like a good Madonna fan I'll still look for the video and will probably love it. But for now I still have to label this an epic fail on Madonna's part. Though the Jimmy Fallon video does make up a bit for it.

Madonna - Bitch i'm Madonna ( on the Jimmy felon) by mdollaworld1

Update: OK here is the full video and it is as campy and classic as you would want it to be.

Picture Of The Day: Kellan Lutz In A Towel

Will Caitlyn Jenner Join The View?

Right now there are two hot stories going around the internet, Rachel Dolezal and Caitlyn Jenner. Then there is the trainwreck known as The View and the constant struggle to find permanent co-hosts. So it makes sense that reports would pair Caitlyn Jenner (who is not dogged in controversy) and The View to make one helluva rumor.

So here is the scoop; Right now the reports are saying that ABC News, the division now in charge of The View, really want to get Caitlyn Jenner to join their panel. This is an effort to replace the irreplaceable Rosie O'Donnell with someone who can make news just as easily as the opinionated lesbian. Caitlyn proved that she can do that with the cover of Vanity Fair. Here is what the Source says "The network honchos feel Caitlyn’s the perfect solution to keeping the show cutting-edge, alive and thriving! Comfy in front of the camera and not shy about sharing opinions, she’s a professional commentator – so the network feels she’d put ratings through the roof.” On that point I cannot disagree with them, adding her to the panel would be a ratings win all the way around. 

Last week the show added Raven Symone to the permanent co-host panel. If Caitlyn joins they would have a lesbian, a republican, a transgender, and Whoopi Goldberg. That is the kind of panel that could be interesting, though I would be remiss not to mention that it would be better if they replaced Whoopi with Rosie O but you know that's just my view.
