Things have gone a bit retro today – but the goss was too good, I couldn’t help taking a trip down memory lane. First, though, a shocking revelation from someone very now …
Brandi’s revenge surgery
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville has announced in her new tell-all book Drinking and Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders that after being dumped by husband Eddie Cibrian for LeAnn Rimes she took rather unique form of revenge – charging her vaginal reconstruction to his credit card.
“I would ask Eddie from time to time if my vagina was the same after childbirth,” she writes. “He always said yes, except once. He was actually quite vulgar. I decided that since Eddie ruined my vagina for me, he could pay for a new one. A week after the vaginal rejuvenation surgery, he was on the phone screaming, ‘What the fuck cost you $12,000? Did you get a nose job?’ I responded simply, ‘Yes. A nose job.’ And I hung up.”
If he was angry about the nose job, imagine how he’s feeling now …
Half-pint’s getting married … again!
“They are engaged and both are incredibly happy,” her rep annouced. The couple reportedly got engaged over the Christmas.
“They’ve known each other for quite some time, as their paths have crossed off-and-on over the past 20 years,” a source told US magazine.
Melissa, a mother of two, was previously married to Bo Brinkman and Bruce Boxleitner. (Phwoar, I used to love Bruce in Scarecrow And Mrs King. Remember that show?)
Speaking of historic TV stars and knot tying … Gomer Pyle star Jim Nabors has married his male partner of nearly 40 years, Stan Cadwallader (not pictured above!).
The retired actor told Hawaii News Now: “I’m 82 and he’s in his 60s and so we’ve been together for 38 years and I’m not ashamed of people knowing, it’s just that it was such a personal thing, I didn’t tell anybody. I’m very happy that I’ve had a partner of 38 years and I feel very blessed. And, what can I tell you, I’m just very happy.
“It’s pretty obvious that we had no rights as a couple, yet when you’ve been together 38 years, I think something’s got to happen there, you’ve got to solidify something. And at my age, it’s probably the best thing to do.”
Lindsay turned away from hotel
TMZ reports: “It was a rough night for Lindsay Lohan and mama Dina … first, flying to L.A. to dodge an arrest warrant and landing after midnight … then getting rejected by a swanky hotel … and TMZ has learned they were BLACKBALLED.
“Lindsay and Dina showed up at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica (see video) at around 1 AM Wednesday. Lindsay stayed in the car while Dina went inside to check in, but she was unceremoniously turned away. Sources at Shutters tell TMZ they put Lindsay on a blacklist after she allegedly trashed one of their rooms in 2007.”
Now that’s a teensy bit embarrassing, especially since paparazzi photographers were there to video the moment …
Richard Gere – bedroom gymnast
More juicy revelations from former supermodel Carole Mallory‘s book, Picasso’s Ghost …
Carole on sleeping with Peter Sellars: “I kissed him all over his hairy body. He had hair everywhere. He even had it on his back. I liked it. He reminded me of a giant panda bear.”
Carole on sleeping with Richard Gere: “His gymnastic skills were apparent. He made love his way . . . He didn’t withhold. He was Valentino in the flesh. A sex symbol not to be forgotten. Not to be lumped in with all the others, but to be remembered for his uniqueness. His thoughtfulness. His caring.”
Child star Dakota Fanning is looking all grown up in this shoot for Glamour magazine. But she admits she’s shy about dating because she’s too young. “Even when I was 14, I was like, “I’m not gonna marry this person. What’s the point of doing it?” It’s not me being naive. I just know what it’s supposed to be like. And I think until I feel that, I cannot be bothered.”
Is Megan Fox quitting Hollywood? She Tells UK Marie Claire she’s so psyched by being a mum – son Noah was born in September – she’s thinking about making a career of it. She admits she’s finding it really hard to juggle acting with motherhood: “It’s very hard for me to do this stuff because I feel like this isn’t my job anymore. My job is to be with him. “All I wanted to do my whole, whole life was have a baby and, now, I’ve finally done it. I just want to give Noah as much of myself as I can.”
Rihanna has opened up to Rolling Stone about taking Chris Brown back: “It’s different now. We don’t have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about s–t. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.” She insists she won’t tolerate more abuse. “He doesn’t have the luxury of f–king up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”
