Wading through the murk so you don’t have to …
Are David and Gillian really an item?
Yesterday, one of the school mums told me David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are shagging. And I was like, “No way!” She’d heard it on the radio. Of course, I should have taken that as gospel, but I was a little skeptical. From my recollection of Dave and Gill (being once mistaken for Mr Duchovny’s Aussie stalker, I’m pretty up on his movements) they weren’t overly fond of each other when they co-starred on The X Files.
So I did some research and discovered Celeb Dirty Laundry had reported this yesterday: “Gillian Anderson isn’t wasting any time. Just as news breaks that she’s split from her boyfriend of six years, Mark Griffiths, CDL has learned that she’s living with herX Files co-star David Duchovny in Los Angeles.
A source exclusively told CDL that David and Gillian have been in a serious relationship for some time now and she and her children are shacking up with the Californication actor.”
The Twitterverse went crazy. ”Somewhere in 1997, a fanfic site’s readers are hyperventilating,” tweeted one. Enthused another, “First Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, now David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson?! I NEED AN IMMEDIATE UPDATE ON COURTENEY COX AND MATTHEW PERRY.”
But Wonderwall put the kibosh on it: “We contacted Duchovny’s rep, who assures Wonderwall that the romance rumors aren’t true, but adds that the once (and hopefully future) co-stars are still good friends.”
Actually, now that I come to think about it, this means it MIGHT be true. I mean, a celebrity’s rep isn’t going to confirm something that wild is he? Not until there are pap photos anyway.
As The Huffington Post says: “Of course, we all know that “good friends” is often code for “they’re totally doing it.”
So the truth might still be out there …
Brad & Ange to wed on Saturday?
French media outlets including Paris Match, France 3 Cote d’Azur and Var Matin (I won’t bother linking to them as the sites are in French) are reporting that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will marry at their property, Miraval, on Saturday, which Lainey Gossip informs me “also happens to be Brad’s parents’ 50th anniversary”.
And, of course, what better anniversary present for Jane Pitt than to have Ange as her daughter-in-law …
Lainey adds: “There has been speculation around this date for months, ever since they announced their engagement … Every weekend this summer has been a possible weekend. Every entertainment news outlet has been on alert every weekend since June about these two. I almost wish they’d just get it over with so we can enjoy the rest of our summer without having to sleep with one eye open creeping on their status which, obviously, is what they want. Why put us out of our misery so early? So will they? On Saturday?”
Stay tuned again.
Liberty to forgive cheating husband?
Sources connected with Liberty Ross and Rupert Sanders – the producer caught canoodling with Kristen Stewart – tell TMZ she wants to give her cheating man another chance: “Although Liberty has lawyered up, her end game is NOT divorce. In fact, Liberty and Rupert have already been to a marriage and family therapist. Our sources say, when they were photographed together on Tuesday in Beverly Hills (above), they were coming out of an office building where they met with the psychologist.
“Although Liberty is not wearing her wedding ring, we’re told her goal is figuring out why Rupert cheated and getting some sort of assurance he views what he did as a terrible mistake that he won’t repeat.”
Miranda strips for pervy photographer
Another day, another Miranda Kerr’s nude shoot … this time for Harper’s Bazaar. I was just going to pop it in the Hot Pic Click section, until I noticed the photographer is Terry Richardson. Aside from his camera skills, Terry is famous for his friendship with Justin Theroux and taking photos of him with Jennifer Aniston for his Twitter feed. But I read a story about him a few years ago on a site called XOJane and I’ve never been able to get it out of my head.
It was called “It Happened To Me: I Slept With Terry Richardson” and after reading it I’m pretty sure you’ll feel a bit lip-curly about Miranda her kit off in front of Terry’s lens.
The story on XOJane starts off: “In the early 1990s, when I was about 15 years old, I fell in love with a man who was in love with a sheep.”
It continues with: “He wore nerdy child molester glasses, an unbuttoned flannel shirt, and nothing else. His sinewy torso was covered in sailor tattoos. The slightly blurred, paparazzi-style shot showed him grasping the beast’s hindquarters, yanking its woolly body toward his hungry crotch. Wild, frenzied ectsasy contorted not just his face but the sheep’s face too, bringing new meaning to the term “animal husbandry.”
And then: “In the corner, I spied a caption: “Self Portrait by Terry Richardson.” I had no idea who Terry Richardson was, where he came from, or why he took photos of himself shagging sheep. But I stared at that photo for what felt like hours. It changed me.”
So when the writer, Caroline, spotted him at a party many years later, well … she thought Terry was HOT (!?) and one thing lead to another … Fortunately no sheep had been invited to the soiree, but it was still pretty seedy.
And that’s who Terry Richardson is. Ick.
Gwen insecure? No!
Dlisted, meanwhile, was more horrified by the Gwen Stefani interview in Harper’s Bazaar: “When Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron were together, they’d sometimes wake up next to each other and just as the sun hit his SANS FARDS face, she’d say to him, “You look so much prettier without all that make-up on your face.” But those words will never fall out of Gavin Rossdale’s mouth, because he likes his wife Gwen Stefani more when she looks like a foundation stick with eyes and red lips. Gwen told Harper’s Bazaar that she’s usually got face pores full of slap (Yes, I typed “slap” and yes, I’ve been reading from the Southern Memaw’s Dictionary again) and her husband loves her like that:
“I’ve always been a girl who loves to dress up. I already put my makeup on twice today: I put it on to take my kid to school, and then I went home, washed my face, and put it on again to have lunch with you. I like to make my husband like me more. And he likes it when I’m wearing makeup.”
“And then sometimes, when I’ve got a bunch of make-up on, he calls meMarilyn. Then he tells me to put on a strap-on and slap his ass cheeks with it. It’s weird, but whatever. I do it, because I like to make my husband like me more.”
