Just a quickie today, I’m still recovering from the Golden Globes …
Megan Fox used to speak in tongues (and believes in leprechauns)
Megan Fox has revealed to Esquire magazine that she began speaking in tongues around the age of 8, while attending a Pentecostal church in Tennessee. “The energy is so intense in the room that you feel like anything can happen. They’re going to hate that I compare it to this, but have you ever watched footage of a Santeria gathering or someone doing voodoo? You know how palpable the energy is? Whatever’s going on there, it’s for real.”
She also says she’s seen “magical, crazy things” happen in church. “I’ve seen people be healed. Even now, in the church I go to, during Praise and Worship I could feel that I was maybe getting ready to speak in tongues, and I’d have to shut it off because I don’t know what that church would do if I started screaming out in tongues in the back.”
”It feels like a lot of energy coming through the top of your head – I’m going to sound like such a lunatic – and then your whole body is filled with this electric current. And you just start speaking, but you’re not thinking because you have no idea what you’re saying. Words are coming out of your mouth, and you can’t control it,” Fox explains. “The idea is that it’s a language that only God understands. It’s the language that’s spoken in heaven. It’s called ‘getting the Holy Ghost.’”
She also admits to believing in leprechauns and the Loch Ness monster. God love her.
Charlie Sheen to be a grandfather
Charlie Sheen‘s oldest daughter, Cassandra Estevez, is pregnant and due to give birth later this year.
Charlie confirmed the news during an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman. And admitted to being a little nervous.
“Me as a grandfather, Dave … I don’t know. It’s like the world’s going to crack in half,” he joked. “It’s fabulous. It’s just not a title I’m ready to adopt.”
When David asked whether he’d be a good grandfather, Charlie joked, “Well, yeah, because you can leave the kid!”
Charlie’s ex-wife Denise Richards tweeted: ”I guess some of you have heard…Charlie Sheen is going to be a Grampa…yes, GRAMPA! His beautiful daughter Cassandra is gonna be a mama.”
Lance Armstrong confesses to doping?
US Magazine reports: “Months after swearing in testimony that he was innocent of doping charges leveled against him by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and the World Anti-Doping Agency, Lance Armstrong has reportedly confessed to Oprah Winfrey that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France, a source familiar with the situation told the Associated Press. The Oprah’s Next Chapterinterview is scheduled to be broadcast on Thursday, Jan. 17, on OWN.
“According to the AP, the famed cyclist issued an “emotional” apology to his staff prior to the sit-down with Winfrey on Monday, Jan. 14. Among those present were around 100 staffers for Livestrong, the cancer support charity Armstrong founded after his battle with testicular cancer.”
Jessica’s life to be turned into a TV pilot
“I often find myself thinking that no one could ever make up the things that actually happen in my life – so between the real-life elements and a great team of writers, I think we’ll have people laughing!” Jessica Simpson told the Hollywood Reporter about a new TV show being created about her.
Jessica will also star in the series. Her producer Ben Silverman calls her a “truly a modern-day Lucy with incredible comedic chops.”
Hopefully it’ll turn out better than her last attempt at a TV pilot back in 2004. She played a pop star named Jessica who tried to become a news anchor but the show didn’t get picked up.
Coroner: Natalie Wood’s injuries suffered before she died
People magazine reports: “Natalie Wood‘s bruises and scratches on her arm, wrist and neck may have been suffered before she entered the ocean off Catalina Island and drowned in 1981, the Los Angeles County Coroner now says in a newly revised autopsy report.
“But the report stops short of saying Wood’s drowning wasn’t accidental, instead offering the revised finding of “drowning and other undetermined factors” and revising the manner of death.
“In the new report, county officials say there were “conflicting statements” as to whether Wood and [Robert] Wagner argued and when Wood went missing, but what is clear is that the distress call from Wagner’s boat, at 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 29, came approximately an hour and-a-half after the time Wood was believed to have died.”
So terribly sad, even 30 years after her death.
Russell denies shagging Dita Von Teese
The New York Post reports: ”Russell Crowe has been sharing some intimate rubdowns with burlesque goddess Dita Von Teese, sources tell us.
“The “Les Misérables” star, who split from his wife,Danielle Spencer, in October after nine years of marriage, was spotted holed up with the pin-up gal at the Four Seasons Hotel in December, and they even got a romantic couple’s massage together at 6:30 a.m., says the source.
“Crowe and Von Teese have been flirting with each other on Twitter for a while. Last year, Crowe retweeted her posting “Dressage. Was measured for bespoke blk patent boots w/my name stamped on the heel . . . But under whose bed did I leave my Hermes riding crop?”
“Around the same time, he also retweeted her message: “Giving airport security a lesson in garter belts this morning.”
I’m not sure that’s resounding proof … but it’s juicy!
Russell, meanwhile, has denied the rumours on Twitter: “@DitaVonTeese is brave, smart, sweet and elegant. She is a friend of mine. Who wouldn’t want friends like that? Friends, not lovers.”
Jodie’s baby daddy secret
The mother of Jodie Foster‘s once best friend, late Hollywood producer Randy Stone, has added fuel to the rumours he’s the father of her children.
The Daily Mail reports: ”The usually fiercely private actress, 50, was the talk of the Golden Globes on Sunday night as she openly discussed her sexuality and made a moving tribute to her former girlfriend and co-parent Cydney Bernard.
And watching on proudly were her two sons, Charles, 14, and Kit, 12, whose paternity has never been revealed.
But speaking to MailOnline, the Reverend Beverly Bates, 75, revealed that her son, the late Hollywood producer Randy Stone, who is rumoured to be the boys’ real father, treated them as if they were his own.
She said: “Randy told me that Jodie said she’ll tell the boys who their father is when they’re 21.”
‘He said he could never tell me because Jodie was his best friend. He said ‘mom, I can’t discuss this with you’, he told me he had had to sign documents, it was a secret he took to his grave, that was how much he loved Jodie.
‘He said ‘I can’t break my promise to Jodie’ – and he kept his promise to her.’”
