While the rest of us were enjoying a marathon of Father’s Day movies on FX, Hollywood remained busy maintaining its reputation for the ridiculous. This Monday, we check in with the likes of Jack Osbourne, Kim Kardashian and Kanye, 50 Cent, Guliana and Bill Rancic’s unborn child, and the remarkable Lindsay Lohan.
Jack Osboourne has revealed that he was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a disease that effects the central nervous system and can lead to a wide variety of symptoms, including difficulty moving arms and legs, vision problems, and cognitive struggles. The diagnosis came on the heels of the birh of his daughter, Pearl Clementine, in April. Says the now-cleaned-up-son-of-a-rocker-man:
I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, Why now? I’ve got a family and that’s what’s supposed to be the most important thing.
What a sucker punch, eh? Poor guy. Here’s to hoping it’s one of the milder cases of the disease.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made the most of a recent trip to Paris, lovin’ it up for the cameras. The couple, who now appear to be dressing to matchy-match OMFG, were seen grabbing some dinner and cruising around town in the $400,000 Lamborghini that Kim bought Kanye for his birthday. During a recent interview with Oprah, Kim revealed that it is Kanye’s age, not his swaggah, that attracts her to him:
I always dated five years younger. My whole thing was completely different, and now I just love that I’m with someone that’s a couple years older than me.
Here’s to hoping her math is sound and that it is, in fact, an important factor in assessing the lasting power of a meaningful relationship.
Fifty Cent recently appeared on Oprah’s lame show, Oprah’s Next Chapter. You know, the one that has big celebrity names yet fails to live up to the hype? Right, that one. Anyway, there was a moment during her interview of the rapper that she asked him to name the people he feels “genuinely love” him, and Fitty was only able to come up with two people after some struggle.
50 Cent struggled to answer the question, unable to come up with someone outside of his grandmother and his son. ‘Short periods of time? Lots of people,’ he said. But that’s not true love. That’s perhaps opportunistic love.
His list was even shorter when he was asked to name people he felt “always had [his] back.” And then the audience wept audibly while 50 Cent blotted his tears with hundred dollar bills and Oprah went on to discuss some sort of feud they once had that nobody remembers.
And, in baby news, the couple that is famous for no reason whatsoever have announced the gender of their unborn child. Giuliana and Bill Rancic are expecting a baby via surrogate after Giuliana’s much publicized difficulty trying to conceive. A breast cancer diagnosis made the struggle even more heart wrenching for those of us who have a soul. So, when the couple had their baby shower yesterday, they took the celebratory opportunity to announce that the baby they are expecting is, in fact, equipped with a penis.
And, finally, after a is-she-finally-dead scare, Lindsay Lohan took to the Twits to clear up the circumstances behind why paramedics and firefighters were called to her hotel room over the weekend. Producers were apparently trying to get in touch with her, but the overworked and exhausted actress was simply taking a nap.
Note to self.. After working 85hours in 4days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion & 7 paramedics MIGHT show up @ your door…. Hopefully theyre cute. Otherwise it would be a real let down. XL @mrsalperez -back on set
The production company behind her film, Liz & Dick released a statement with similar sentiments, and once again, all was well in La-La Land.
