Why Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler and Other Stars Are Wearing Lena Dunham’s Shirt

Thursday, October 30th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Lena Dunham has always been outspoken on the subject of women’s reproductive rights.

Now, she’s enlisting the help of her A-list pals to spread the word about Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s Women Are Watching Campaign, an initiative aimed to encourage women to vote for politicians who support that cause.

“We hear a lot about how apathetic our millennial youth are, but that just hasn’t been my experience. My friends, as well as the young women I met on my book tour who are friends now too, have so much joy, anger, hunger for change,” the actress told Glamour magazine. “I want us to show up at the polls in record numbers, to show that we won’t stand for attacks on women and their rights, that we recognize our power to shape the future.”

So, Dunham, 28, teamed up with Planned Parenthood to design a T-shirt that reads, “Lena [Hearts] Planned Parenthood,” to promote the campaign. It’s currently on sale for $25 online. The Not That Kind of Girl author has posted photos of her famous friends wearing it too. Here are a handful, below.

Look Who’s Coming to “American Horror Story”

Thursday, October 30th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Jason Kempin/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — American Horror Story fans got their first look Wednesday at Matt Bomer, who joins the fourth season of FX’s anthology series.

Bomer doesn’t make his debut until next Wednesday’s episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show, which premiered earlier this month. But Out magazine got an exclusive first peek at his character.

The 37-year-old actor strikes an all-American pose with slicked hair and a leather jacket for this season’s storyline, which is set in the 1950s and centers on a “troupe of curiosities.”

Creator Ryan Murphy, who worked with Bomer on HBOs The Normal Heart, told The Hollywood Reporter that something “horrible and dastardly” happens in Bomer’s episode.

Without giving away any details, Murphy said Bomer has a seven-page scene with Michael Chiklis that the director called “maybe one of the most disturbing things we’ve ever done and a true horror scene.”

Neil Patrick Harris is also joining the freak show. TVLine confirmed that the How I Met Your Mother alum will appear at the tail end of the season.

In addition, Harris’ real-life husband, David Burtka, is set to guest-star on the anthology hit, making this something of a family affair.

After Harris, a fan of the show, expressed his desire for a guest gig, Murphy has been busy working on something for him.

“He’s game; he had very specific ideas about what he wanted to do and I have specific ideas. We’re working on melding those,” Murphy told reporters earlier this month. “I’d love to see him and Jessica Lange go at it in a really fun way and Neil seems intrigued by that notion.”

Mama June ‘Can’t Say Anything Bad About TLC’ After Show Cancellation

Thursday, October 30th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

TLC(NEW YORK) — “Mama June” Shannon appears to be taking the cancellation of her hit TLC show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, in stride.

In an interview that aired on E! News Wednesday night, the reality star said, “I can’t say anything bad about the show. I can’t say anything bad about TLC.”

Mama June also smiled and laughed throughout most of the interview, even throwing up the peace sign.

TLC nixed the reality show Friday after allegations surfaced that Mama June was once again dating convicted pedophile Mark McDaniel. Shannon has denied these claims, saying she hasn’t seen McDaniel since he was released from prison in March after serving a 10-year sentence for aggravated child molestation. However, photographic evidence has surfaced online that appears to suggest otherwise.

The E! News interview was held after Mama June’s eldest daughter, Anna Marie Cardwell, who went by “Chickadee” on the show, said McDaniel molested her as a child. In an interview with People, Chickadee said that McDaniel “would try and touch me and all that stuff” when she was 8 years old and he was in a relationship with her mother.

When asked if she had spoken to Chickadee recently, Mama June said, “I talk to her — I talk to all my kids. We’re all doing fine. We’re just hanging out as a family and handling it privately. The protection of my kids is my number-one priority.”

Chris Brown Reportedly Settles Two Lawsuits

Thursday, October 30th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Jeff Bottari/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Most of us were paying so much attention to the hoopla surrounding Chris Brown’s recent assault case in Washington, D.C., that we forgot all about his other nagging legal problems. But the singer didn’t.

TMZ reports Brown has settled two outstanding civil cases against him, one of them related to the charges in D.C.

Brown pleaded guilty on Sept. 2 to misdemeanor assault in that case, but the man he was accused of punching outside a Washington, D.C. hotel a year ago this month just got a check from Brown for about $100,000 to drop his related civil suit. It’s a win for Brown, considering the victim was asking for a reported $1.5 million.

You’ve got to go back nearly two years for the other case. Remember Brown’s supposed brawl with Frank Ocean in January of 2013? Brown was accused of punching Ocean in the parking lot of a Los Angeles-area recording studio, reportedly over a parking space. Prosecutors didn’t find enough evidence to press charges and Ocean himself declined to do the same. His cousin, however, wasn’t as forgiving, and sued Brown for $3 million.

TMZ claims Brown just settled that case as well, for the bargain price of $20,000, if not less.

Brown’s most recent news has been all good. He received a positive progress report from the courts last week in his continuing probation for assaulting Rihanna nearly five years ago. That probation reportedly ends in January. He also leads all nominees for the 2014 Soul Train Awards, taking place Nov. 7.

Report: Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake Expecting First Baby

Thursday, October 30th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

David Becker/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Jessica Biel and hubby Justin Timberlake are expecting their first child, a source tells Radar Online.

A pal of the 32-year-old actress tells the gossip website, “Jessica is at least three months pregnant and she’s due in April!”

A second source claims that Biel has been cautious about going public with the news because she’s had problems getting pregnant in the past.

“Jessica has had tense times in the past when it comes to having a baby, so it is not surprising that she is staying mum on confirming the news publicly yet,” the insider notes.

The couple celebrated their second wedding anniversary a little over a week ago while vacationing in New Zealand.

Taylor Swift to Donate Proceeds of Single to NYC Public Schools

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

ABC/Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) — Taylor Swift is giving back to her new adopted hometown.

The singer announced on ABC’s The View Wednesday that she’s donating the proceeds from the sale of her single, “Welcome to New York,” to New York City Public Schools.

“I’m still learning but I’m so enthusiastic about this city that I feel like when I love something, I’m very vocal about it,” Swift, who was recently named a “Global Welcome Ambassador” for New York City tourism, said earlier this week during an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America.

“I just go around going like, ‘Everybody, New York is amazing.’ So I think they just picked up on that and they gave me, like, a title,” she added.

Swift, 24, has had a banner week, having just released her new ’80s-inspired album, 1989. This marks the first time Swift has put out a pop album, something she described as the “most authentic” move.

“I feel so without a doubt [that] this is the best thing I’ve done,” she told GMA. “So to have people able to finally have it now and to have the fans understand what I’ve been working on for two years, it’s just the most amazing feeling.”

Katie Holmes Doesn’t Want Tom Cruise Divorce to ‘Define Me’

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Katie Holmes had never really spoken publicly about her split from Tom Cruise in 2012 — until now. The former Dawson’s Creek actress says she’s moved on from all the attention she got from the split and wants to keep that in the past.

“I don’t want that moment in my life to define me, to be who I am,” Holmes tells People magazine. “I don’t want that to be what I’m known as. I was an actor before, an actor during and an actor now.”

As for how she lives her life, Holmes added, “I don’t have any fear now, I don’t have a lot of rules for myself, and I don’t take myself that seriously.”

Holmes, 35, and Cruise, 52, were married from 2006 to 2012 and have an eight-year-old daughter, Suri.

The actress also opened up about being a single mother to Suri, who also gets a lot of attention.  “I’m learning every day, and I have been since the minute I became a mom,” she said, adding Suri “means everything to me.”
