I am befuddled and muddled this week, hence forgetting to blog HouseGoesHollywood yesterday. It must be all the paint fumes … But I’m not the only one in the wars – look who’s had a worse time of it that me …
>> Michel Buble knocked a tooth out with his microphone while on stage in Sydney. He revealed the injury to his fans via his Instagram page, posting a shot of himself sitting in the dentist’s chair with an oxygen mask around his face.
He captioned it: ‘Thankfully no one knew, but I knocked my tooth out with my microphone last night during the second song!!’ Don’t worry, I’m at the dentist getting fixed up for my final show tonight in #Sydney #australia #mbworldtour #tourlife.”
>> Prosecutors charged actor Michael Jace, who played a police officer in the TV series The Shield with murder on Thursday in the shooting death of his wife in their Los Angeles home.
>> Hugh Jackman gave fans a shock when he caught a train in Melbourne during peak rush hour on the Central to South Yarra train line. He was running late for an appearance on The Project after the premiere of X-Men: Days Of Future Past ran over-time and decided a train was a better bet than the cab rank.
He told panelists on the show: “I took the train. A few of them (commuters) were like ‘gee that looks like Hugh Jackman’.”
>> Meanwhile, in a spoof preview for The Living Room, Amanda Keller is caught getting ready for an interview with Hugh, wearing a green face mask … and he steps in to help, waxing her upper lip.
“He walked away with my top lip hair — I don’t know if he will sell it on eBay,” she joked to the Daily Telegraph afterwards.
>> Sofia Vergara scored herself the ultimate selfie, with her son and Brad Pitt, at the Make It Right Foundation’s 2014 Gala.

Online thought it was“incredible.” Your mileage may vary, but watch below and decide.
>> Zoe Foster-Blake posted a pic of her newborn Sonny, with the caption: “A photo for Sonny to put up on social media for mother’s day when he’s older, saying how much he loves/appreciates me/thinks I’m the bear’s flares etc.”
>> Channing Tatum admits in the June 2014 issue of GQ that he’s a “high-functioning alcoholic”.
He confessed: “My wife, that’s what she bought into… I’m probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic, I guess.
“There’s probably a tendency to escape. I equate it to creativity, and I definitely equate it to having a good time,’ he said of how he feels when he drinks.
But he says he cut back on the partying after becoming a dad to daughter Everly last May, and he’s staying off the grog during the four months of filming on the Magic Mike sequel.
“Then, at the end of that movie, it’s go time.”

>> Charlie Sheen slammed Rihanna on Twitter after she refused to meet his porn star fiancee, Scottine Sheen (formerly Brett Rossi).

“Well, the word we received back was that there were too many paps outside and it just wasn’t possible at this time. At this time? AT THIS TIME?? Lemme guess, we’re to reschedule another random 11 million to 1 encounter with her some other night…?
“No biggie for me; it would have been 84 interminable seconds of chugging Draino and ‘please kill me now’ that I’d never get back. My Gal, however, was NOT OK with it. Nice impression you left behind, Bday or not. Sorry we’re not KOOL enough to warrant a blessing from the Princess. (Or in this case the Village idiot.)
“Halloween isn’t for a while. But good on you for testing out your costume in public,” he quipped. “See ya on the way down…and actually, it was a pleasure NOT meeting you. Clearly we have NOTHING in common when it comes to respect for those who’ve gone before you. I’m guessing you needed those precious 84 seconds to situate that bad wig before you left the restaurant.”
>> While promoting her new movie, And So It Goes, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Diane Keaton had a very candid chat about all the men she’s kissed on screen … and the ones she’d like to one day.
Ellen kicked things off by saying: “The last time you were here you were talking about all the different men that you’ve kissed. And you enjoy kissing the men, you say …”
“I like it, I do,” Diane replied, adding her And So It Goes co-star Michael Douglas to the tally: “I like the Michael part, too.”
“So he’s added to the list now?” Ellen asked.
“He’s on the list,” she confirmed with a wink. “What was exciting about him was that he was sort of like a pitbull. You know, he kind of attacked me and in the scene there, you know, I was acting sort of cautious, but in my heart of hearts I felt the same about him and I wanted to just get right with it.”
She went on to say: “I’ve been thinking about the kissing and I’ve been elaborating in my mind about what I want. And what I’ve decided I would like as my goal in life, is to be the woman in films who has had the most kisses with men on film. I’m thinking that maybe 50 is what I’m going for. So I have a little bit of time.
“I have a list of men here. I have, like, well not enough actually. More like 18. I have a long way to go!”
Then she handed over the list to Ellen, who said: “So the people you’ve kissed… Woody Allen, Keanu Reeves, Tom Cruise, Kevin Kline, Steve Martin, Al Pacino…”
Ellen continued: “Look, there’s a category “Left To Kiss”. Robert Redford, Clint Eastwood, Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Adam Levine, David Beckham, Will Ferrell, Louis CK…”
“Louis CK – that’s the one I want right now,” Diane agreed.
>> Toni Braxton has confessed in her new memoir that she thinks God gave her 11-year-old son autism in order to punish her for getting an abortion.
Via the Frisky:
“I was suddenly faced with a choice I’d never thought I’d have to make. Amid my major misgivings about abortion, I eventually made the gut-wrenching decision… In my heart, I believed I had taken a life — an action that I thought God might one day punish me for. … My initial rage was quickly followed by another strong emotion: guilt. I knew I’d taken a life… I believed God’s payback was to give my son autism.”
According to the book, Braxton learned that she was pregnant while on the acne medication Accutane — which can result in severe complications, especially to the unborn fetus — so she decided to terminate the pregnancy.
