Bradley Cooper Addresses Gaga Romance Rumors

Bradley Cooper finally addressed those romance rumors between the actor and musician Lady Gaga.  He claimed the chemistry seen between him and Lady Gaga during the movie and subsequent performances was just acting in a cover story about the musician published by The Hollywood Reporter.  “Just from a personal standpoint, it reduces the anxiety level,” Cooper told the outlet, referring to the way the two stared into each other’s eyes as they performed “Shallow” at the Oscars.  “They kind of fall in love in that scene in the film,” he added. “It’s that explosive moment that happens to happen to them on a stage in front of thousands of people. … It would have been so weird if we were both on stools facing the audience.”  Cooper didn’t have anything but kind words to say about the talent Lady Gaga brought to “A Star Is Born.” Cooper’s love life is back in the spotlight as he has been spotted with ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk. The two were spotted strolling arm-in-arm in New York City sharing their first PDA moment since splitting back in 2019.  Cooper and Gaga sparked romance rumors due to their palpable chemistry in the film and during subsequent performances. However, Shayk and Cooper reportedly split due to how much time they were spending apart.
*********BS!!! Bradley and Gaga were totally doin’ it!!!!!
*******Irina Shayk split up with him because he came home with a “Poker Face!!”
*****Bradley found it hard to resist a woman who’s as “Shallow” as he is!!

Meghan and Harry Once Disguised Themselves For Halloween

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were determined to keep their relationship under wraps.  She appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday. She reminisced about what it was like dating her now-husband before their relationship went public.  She said they managed to keep their dating life a secret when they went to celebrate Halloween together.  “[Harry] came to see me in Toronto and our friends and his cousin [Princess] Eugenie and now her husband Jack [Brooksbank] – they came as well,” she said. “The four of us snuck out in Halloween costumes to just have one fun night on the town before it was out in the world that we were a couple.”  “It was a post-apocalypse theme so we had all of this very bizarre costuming on and we were able to just have one final fun night out,” the duchess added.  But Halloween as a married couple and parents to Archie and Lilibet looked very different this year.  “We were home and we saw you guys which was great, but we wanted to do something fun for the kids and they were just not into it at all,” Markle shared. “Archie was a dinosaur for maybe five minutes. Not even five minutes.”  As for their baby girl, who was born in June of this year, she was “a little skunk.”  “Like Flower from Bambi,” Markle boasted.
******When Trick or Treaters tried to come to their front door, they were mowed down in a hail of bullets by their bodyguards!!
*****We’re glad she had “one last night of happiness” before she gave herself to the world!!
*****Maybe it’s just us, but this chick is starting to make our butt itch!!!
*****Maybe they should try dressing as the Queen and the ghost of Prince Phillip!!

Pam and Tommy Coming To Hulu!

In what has been billed as the “first viral video,” a new trailer for the Hulu biographic miniseries “Pam & Tommy” invites us all to watch the 1990s rock royalty bang it out one last time.  On Thursday, the streaming TV platform dropped the first full-length trailer for the new series, which premieres Feb. 2 next year.  Lily James (“Baby Driver”) and Sebastian Stan (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) star as “Baywatch” bombshell Pamela Anderson and Motley Crue guitarist Tommy Lee, alongside Seth Rogen, Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granese and Mozhan Marnò.  The series follows the brief courtship of Pamela and Tommy, then 28 and 33, respectively, when they wed in 1995, just 96 hours after the lovebirds first met. Their ill-fated Cancún beach wedding ceremony was captured on VHS, as well as their wild reception party and, as the legend goes, their honeymoon night.  It was the sex tape heard around the world.  “Pam & Tommy” will begin streaming Feb. 2 on Hulu.
*****The movie is sponsored by “In and Out!!!” Uh… because there’s a lot of in and out in the movie!!!
*******Lily James is one of the women from “Downton Abbey!!” How the hell is SHE playing Pamela Anderson??
******Before they gave the part to Sebastian Stan, HIS part had to be measured for the role!!

Gorilla Glue Girl Recorded A Rap Song

The Louisiana woman who infamously used Gorilla Glue on her hair after running out of hairspray is now releasing a rap song.  Tessica Brown is set to drop the track — aptly titled “Ma Hair” — this morning after hitting a Hollywood recording studio last month.  The mom of five reportedly wrote the rap lyrics herself before working with independent music producer Phil Valley to create the track.  According to TMZ, Brown and Valley were hoping to have Nicki Minaj featured on the song — but the 10-time Grammy nominee didn’t return their calls.  The single features snippets of audio from a TikTok video that Brown recorded back in February, which detailed her Gorilla Glue gaffe.  In that clip, Brown explained that she used Gorilla Glue spray adhesive on her locks after running out of regular hairspray.  “My hair doesn’t move! I’ve washed my hair 15 times and it don’t move! It’s been like this for a month now!” she stated.  She underwent a four-hour surgery performed by Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Michael Obeng, who removed the Gorilla Glue from the scalp after finding out how to break down the compound that makes the product stick.  The surgery cost $12,500, but Obeng performed the procedure for free.
*******We’re surprised she didn’t record it with the Gorillaz!!

Madonna Goes Old School!-(National Enquirer)

Madonna is prepping a “goodbye tour featuring her greatest hits!  “Since signing a new deal with Warner Music Group for her entire catalog, Madonna needs to promote her old songs.  To celebrate her career’s 40th anniversary next year, she’ll hit the road singing her hits,” a music source spilled.  “It’s time to start exploiting her catalog and make crazy money.”

Inside Sean’s Slave Penn-(Globe)

Actor Sean Penn has been slapped with a labor relations complaint branding him a slave-driving boss who forces staffers to work 18-hour days with a lack of food and restrooms, leaving them exhausted and in tears.  Critics say self-proclaimed do-gooder Penn also tried to bully young workers at his nonprofit Community Organized Relief Effort (CORE) into silence by saying they were “cyber whining” about conditions-and if they didn’t like things, they could “quit!”  The complaint is linked to CORE’S COVID vaccination drive at Dodger Stadium in January, where L.A. residents waited in line for as long as five hours to get a shot. But CORE staffers insist it was worse for them.  One claims they were forced to work 18-hour days, six days a week.  Labor relations attorney Daniel B. Rojas, who represent the complaining CORE staffers, slams Penn as a bully for trying to stifle complaints.  He called the actor an “impetuous ultra-wealthy man” who “coerced hundreds of young people into believing discussing wages or working conditions is incompatible with continued employment in the nonprofit sector.”

Gwyneth & Brad:  Perfect Pairing-(Us Weekly)

It’s been a little over three years since their wedding day, and Gwyneth Paltrow is still raving about how lucky she is to have met her “dream guy” Brad Falchuk.  “I just feel so grateful,” the actress recently said.  “The quality of our friendship is really thrilling.” A source says that Paltrow, 49, and Falchuk, 50, truly are solid.  “They work well together day in and out, but they also enjoy their space.  It really works for them.”

Alec & Hilaria:  Showing the Strain-(Star)

Will their marriage survive the fallout from his fatal shooting?  Alec Baldwin struggled to get the words out during an impromptu press conference with reporters in Manchester, Vt. Oct. 30.  Not because he was overcome with emotion while discussing the accidental shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his film, Rust.  But because his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, would not stop interrupting him!  “Do me a favor?  I’m going to answer the question,” the actor, 63, snapped waving her away.  “Alec can barely hold himself together,” shares the source.  “He knows how freaked out Hilaria is by all the attention-and the possibility that he could be brought up on charges.”  Adds the source:  “This is by far the biggest test their marriage has faced.”

To Hell and Back-(Life & Style)

Nov. 1

A recovering addict never forgets hitting rock bottom, and Jessica Simpson is no different.  The fashion mogul celebrated four years of sobriety by posting a nearly unrecognizable pic of herself taken back in 2017 on morning after Halloween-day one in her journey to putting her life back together.  “The drinking wasn’t the issue.  I was,” shared Jessica, 41, who had begun drinking before 7:30 a.m. on Oct. 31, and wound up getting so wasted she was unable to help her daughter, Maxwell, 9, and son, Ace, 7, with their costumes.  Jess gave up drinking the following morning and went on to lead a healthier and happier life, giving birth to daughter Birdie two years later and writing about her struggle in her 2020 memoir, Open Book.  “I didn’t love myself,” she says of being to hell and back.  “I didn’t respect my own power.  Today I do.”


Magician Criss Angel, 53, and his wife, actress-singer Shaunyl Benson, 30, welcomed daughter Illusia Angelina on Nov. 5.  She joins big brother Johnny, 7, and Xristos, 2.

“Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is retooling the social media platform toward young adults and away from older users.  Honestly, just make it a little harder to sign in and you’ll never see an old person on Facebook again.”-Jimmy Fallon.



Bear Uses Hand Sanitizer

An employee at a 7-Eleven store in California captured video when a curious bear pushed open the door to the store and came inside.  Rachelle Ducusin, an employee at the 7-Eleven store in Olympic Valley, in the Lake Tahoe area, said she spotted the bear rooting through the store’s trash and went inside to call 911.  Ducusin captured video when the bear followed her example and pushed the store’s door open.  The video shows the employee shouting at the bear to leave as it stands in the doorway and uses its nose to trigger an automatic hand sanitizer dispenser.  Ducusin said emergency responders arrived on the scene and used rubber bullets to scare the bear away. She said the animal returned a few hours later to dig through the trash again.  Kevin Thomas, a regional manager for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, said the bear’s ear tag indicates it was previously captured and marked as part of the department’s tagging program in the Tahoe Basin. See the video HERE.
********Ahh… a repeat offender!!!
******Bears need hand sanitizer!! It’s filthy out there in the woods!!

Cat Stuck In Cat Food Can

Firefighters in Turkey rescued a cat found wandering around with a metal pet food can stuck over its head.  The Denizli Metropolitan Municipality Fire Brigade said the cat was brought to a station by members of the public, who found it with the aluminum food can stuck over its head.  The firefighters initially were unable to pull the can from the feline’s head, and had to use tools to cut through the can.  The cat, which did not appear to be injured, ran off after being freed from the can.  See the video HERE.
