How Pamela Anderson’s Sons Found Out About Her Fame

Thursday, August 27th, 2015 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Ray Mickshaw/FOX(LOS ANGELES) — Believe it or not, Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has two teenage sons.

Brandon, 19, and Dylan, 17, her children with ex-husband Tommy Lee, were too young when the show was a hit in the ’90s, so they were caught off guard one year when they started going to surf camp and found out about their famous heartthrob of a mom.

“They came up to me and they said, ‘Mom, are you Pamela Anderson?’ And I said ‘Yeah,'” she told People magazine of their first day at camp years back. “They were like, ‘What is that?’ And ’Why are people saying these things? Are you Pamela Anderson for real?'”

It was such a surprise to the boys because they knew their father was a rock star, but they thought Anderson was just a soccer mom. “I built my whole life around them — like their soccer games were in my contracts,” she added.

Anderson was married to Lee from 1995 to 1998 and to singer Kid Rock from 2006 to 2007. She recently remarried her ex Rick Salomon last year, but got divorced months later.

Lea Michele Details How She Found Love Again After Cory Monteith’s Death

Thursday, August 27th, 2015 by

Posted in Entertainment News

ABC/Fred Lee(NEW YORK) — When Lea Michele’s boyfriend and Glee co-star Cory Monteith died unexpectedly from substance abuse two years ago last month, the actress struggled to put her life back together. But Michele, who recently published a self-help book for women titled You First: Journal Your Way to Your Best Life, said she found love again because she focused on herself.

“I wanted to make sure that I was OK with me, feeling strong and feeling happy on my own,” she says in the October issue of FLARE magazine. “I didn’t want anybody to fill any holes for me — that sounds sexual! I wanted to make sure that I was a whole person again and that no one was coming into my life to put me back together. I needed to do that on my own.” 

Monteith was 31 when he was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room July 13, 2013. Authorities later revealed he died of mixed drug toxicity involving heroin and alcohol.

“I worked very, very, very hard and I got back to that place where I was genuinely happy and strong and ready to live again and see the world and, you know, bring in more beautiful experiences,” says Michele.  “And that’s when someone miraculously came into my life,” she adds.

Michele has been dating her boyfriend Matthew Paetz since 2014.

But Lea’s not only focused on her personal life. Since Glee ended earlier this year, she’s also been focused on helping others, which is why she decided to write You First.

“I’m so proud of my success. I’m really proud of the life I’ve built and created for myself. I’ve kept my head on my shoulders to get to where I am,” she tells FLARE. “You’re always going to run into critics. The only people I care about are the people that are close to me. It’s a tough business, it’s a tough town, and you really have to have a thick skin. I’m constantly learning, but I’m really proud of where I am.”

“Mr. Robot” Finale Postponed Because of Virginia Killings

Thursday, August 27th, 2015 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Virginia Sherwood/USA Network(NEW YORK) — After Wednesday morning’s horrific killings in Virginia, USA Network has decided to postpone the season finale of Mr. Robot since one of the scenes is eerily similar.

Mr. Robot, about “a young programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and as a vigilante hacker by night,” according to the show’s website, will instead air its finale next week.

In the show, the young programmer is recruited by a mysterious anarchist, who calls himself Mr. Robot.

Photos from the series also show the character’s lead Elliot Alderson, played by Rami Malek, wearing a black hoodie. The prevailing theme of the show is corruption in America.

“The previously filmed season finale of Mr. Robot contains a graphic scene similar in nature to today’s tragic events in Virginia. Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode. Our thoughts go out to all those affected during this difficult time,” USA Network told ABC News in a statement Wednesday.

The finale will air next Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST.

Vester Lee Flanagan, known professionally as Bryce Williams, allegedly shot two of his former colleagues, Alison Parker, 24, and Adam Ward, 27, of WDBJ-TV, killing them in the field during a live news segment in Moneta, Virginia.

ABC/Donna Svennevik(NEW YORK) — Dancing with the Stars is cooking up more celebrities for the ballroom this season.

According to E! News, controversial chef Paula Deen and Grammy Award-winning singer Chaka Khan will be among those competing for the Mirrorball Trophy on season 21 of the show.

If the rumors are true, Deen would be joining the dancing competition after being courted by the show for years. In fact, she told Extra back in 2010 that she turned down the opportunity to join DWTS. “They did ask me and I said no,” she said then, adding, “Fat girls don’t look good sweating.” 

News of Deen and Khan possibly joining the show follows news that Backstreet Boy Nick Carter will compete this season after he was talked into it by his friend, Joey Fatone of ‘N SYNC. Also dancing this season are Bindi Irwin, daughter of late Crocodile Hunter star Steve Irwin, and triple crown jockey Victor Espinoza. The rest of the cast will be revealed September 2 on ABC’s Good Morning America

Season 21 of Dancing with the Stars premieres Sept. 14, at 8 p.m. Eastern on ABC.

Posted in Entertainment News

Courtesy of Rosie O’Donnell(NEW YORK) — Rosie O’Donnell’s adopted daughter has left home again.

Chelsea O’Donnell, who left home earlier in the month before being returned home by police on August 18, recently turned 18 and opted to live with her birth mother instead of the comedian.

O’Donnell’s publicist told ABC News: “Chelsea made a decision when she turned 18 that she wanted to go to her birth mother. This was her choice.”

Last week, O’Donnell took to Twitter and her website to announce that Chelsea was missing. She was 17 at the time.

“She was wearing a black sweatshirt hoodie, dark ripped blue jeans, women’s grey converse sneakers and a black backpack. Chelsea has a large tattoo on her right side of a dream catcher with the word ‘Breathe.’ She left home with her 6 month old therapy dog named Bear … Chelsea stopped taking her medicine and is in need of medical attention,” a statement read.

O’Donnell’s rep added at the time that Chelsea, “like millions of people, lives with mental illness. It has been a difficult road for Chelsea and her family and they just want her back safe.”

Hours later, O’Donnell wrote on social media, “Chelsea has been found and is safe in police custody — thank u all for the help and light #missingchildren.”

New details later emerged from police that Chelsea O’Donnell took a bus last week to the Jersey Shore, where she spent the week away from home.
