Y’all, Andrew Garfield fans are wild in the best way possible!!

The Spiderman star sat down with BuzzFeed on Wednesday to read some of the best thirst tweets about him on the internet, and his reactions were priceless!! Not only did he contemplate the sexiness of The Octopus Teacher (for a ridiculously long time), but the humble 37-year-old had to read things like:

“Andrew Garfield’s spandex clad buttocks should be legally obliged to appear in all superhero movies from now on.”

“Yes, the rumors are true. I am a slut for Andrew Garfield.”

“Can we talk about how gorgeous Andrew Garfield is for a sec? Like, that man is f**king beautiful. I’d let him eat crackers in bed.”

We cannot be happier for Kat! However, it is wild to think the couple only went public with their romance earlier this month when she posted two solo shots of the artist on her IG. The 2 Broke Girls star then released a couple of PDA images, including a selfie of Andrew kissing her forehead as she puckered her lips at the camera.

Of course, the short timing between the two left some fans completely shocked by the proposal. One person even commented:

“WAIT SINCE WHEN WAS SHE DATING ANDREW W.K.???? This is an awesome pairing. Congrats!”

Another wrote:

“no one told me Kat Dennings was dating Andrew WK”

Obviously, some people missed the memo! But don’t worry, there are still plenty of folks who are thrilled for the pair. Here are so more reactions from social media users on Twitter (below):

Tom Cruise Defends His COVID Rant From Mission: Impossible Set: ‘I Said What I Said’

Tom Cruise Defends His COVID Rant From Mission: Impossible Set: ‘I Said What I Said’
Home » Tom Cruise » Tom Cruise Defends His COVID Rant From Mission: Impossible Set: ‘I Said What I Said’

Tom Cruise is not backing down!

Late last year, the actor made headlines for an expletive-laden tirade against crew members of the latest Mission: Impossible film. They had drawn Tom’s ire for allegedly being too lax with coronavirus safety protocols, and when the action star noticed, he flipped his lid.

Related: Seth Rogen FINALLY Tells The Scary Scientology Part Of His Epic Tom Cruise Story!

If you don’t remember the controversy, well, the rant went a little something like this:

“They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. Because they believe in us and what we’re doing. I’m on the phone with every f**king studio at night, insurance companies, producers and they’re looking at us and using us to make their movies. We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherf**kers. I don’t ever want to see it again. Ever! … That’s it. No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their f***ing homes because our industry is shut down. We are not shutting this f***ing movie down. Is it understood? If I see it again, you’re f***ing gone.”

And that’s just an excerpt!

Leaked audio from the intense moment caused debate over Tom’s stance. Some respected his position in taking COVID safety so seriously as the film’s producer, while others pointed out it wasn’t a great way to treat your employees. Plus, the rant reportedly caused many crew members to quit. So does the Top Gun star have any regrets?

Short answer: nope! Reflecting on the incident, he told Empire magazine:

“I said what I said. There was a lot at stake at that point.”

Well damn! Alright then!

He added that the diatribe wasn’t directed at “entire crew.” Instead, he “had the crew leave the set” while he unleashed his rage on “select people.” For the 58-year-old, his anger came from wanting to protect the jobs of the M:I7 crew. He admitted:

“All those emotions were going through my mind. I was thinking about the people I work with, and my industry. And for the whole crew to know that we’d started rolling on a movie was just a huge relief. It was very emotional, I gotta tell you.”

He also pointed out that the film “never shut down again” after that episode, remarking:

“And here we are, continuing to film.”

Well, we can’t argue with the effectiveness, but we still think it’s probably not best to rule by fear on set if you’re the producer and #1 on the call sheet. We’re also glad that the industry has survived to keep people employed, though we wouldn’t necessarily give Tom all the credit for that. In any case, we look forward to being back in movie theaters soon!

Lisa Vanderpump Sends Her Restaurant Tab To Former BFF Kyle Richards Amid Endless Feud!

Lisa Vanderpump Sends Her Restaurant Tab To Former BFF Kyle Richards Amid Endless Feud!
Home » Lisa Vanderpump » Lisa Vanderpump Sends Her Restaurant Tab To Former BFF Kyle Richards Amid Endless Feud!

In case you had forgotten (how could you?!) about Lisa Vanderpump‘s legendary series of fights with former BFF Kyle Richards, the Vanderpump Rules star is here to ignite controversy once more!

According to media reports, Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd, hit up El Lay’s swanky Shu Restaurant on Monday night, where they saw something unexpected: Kyle was already there eating dinner alongside a Real Housewives executive producer!

Related: Lisa Claps Back At Former Friend Kyle In Endless ‘Real Housewives’ War Of Words!

As Lisa and Ken sat “several tables” away, according to TMZ, the bad blood must have festered during their meal. For one, neither Lisa nor Kyle ever went over to the other Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s table to say hello — though the executive producer did say hi to Lisa.

But even worse, when it came time for the bill at Lisa’s table, the Vanderpump Rules matriarch big leagued the s** t out of her former friend by having the wait staff send her $132 tab to Kyle! SURPRISE!

The waiter complied with the request, but Richards and the Bravo EP didn’t feel like playing their part in the call-out, and they refused to pick up the tab.

How rude!

Thankfully, Lisa counted on that. According to TMZ, she not only left a cash tip for the server, she also left an imprint of her credit card with the restaurant so it could be charged in case Kyle rejected the tab. Smart thinking! And seriously, what a HIGHlariously devious and sinister act on Vanderpump’s part to try to stick it to her ex-pal in a fresh, new way!

Even after years of feuding, and following Lisa walking away from RHOBH for good, it’s clear the drama never ends!

Gotta tip your cap to Lisa and laugh about this one!!!

Is Kim Kardashian More Concerned With Scott Disick’s Feelings Than Kourtney Right Now?

Is Kim Kardashian More Concerned With Scott Disick’s Feelings Than Kourtney Right Now?

Kim Kardashian is looking out for Scott Disick!

And she’s doing it way more than Scott’s ex-GF and baby momma Kourtney Kardashian is, that’s for sure!

In a new teaser clip from Thursday night’s upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim got really real about what the end of filming the reality TV series means for Scott, his mental health, and his connections to the KarJenner krew.

Related: Kim Celebrates Psalm’s 2nd Birthday With Some Never-Before-Seen Pictures!

While Kourt tried to downplay some of Lord Disick’s concerns about the iconic era coming to an end and what it might mean for his relationship with Kourtney and her family, Kim tried to explain and contextualize Scott’s uncertainty.

In the clip, where the KKW Beauty founder sits down one-on-one with the Poosh head honcho, Kim says (below):

“I mean, I feel like Scott feels like, I don’t know, he feels like as a family, we are going to be gone [from his life] if we’re not scheduled to all meet up [and film the show].”

Kourt has a quick answer for it, too!

And yet while true, this (below) maybe isn’t the most sensitive thing to say in this situation:

“I think it’s just change. Some people have a really hard time with change.”

Yeah, that’s true, but what does saying that even help though?!

Fortunately, Kim is there to provide smart counsel with this well-thought take on Kourtney’s baby daddy:

“Think about all the times he’s had big changes [in his life]. It hasn’t been positive for him. So maybe he’s scared in this way that he feels like, ‘well what if I have nothing to do, and I get so restless? [Filming] was giving me a purpose, and giving me something to do, and what if I start drinking, or what if I start this, or what if I start that?’ You know. I can only imagine.”

Very true! There have been a lot of issues in the past. We totally get it!

That being said, we understand why Kourtney feels like he and his feelings are no longer her responsibility. She was there for him through thick and thin for the longest time, and well, he didn’t exactly repay her in kind.

Related: Look At This Stunning Kim K. Marriage Proposal Billboard! Holy S**t!

To her credit, Kourtney comes around in a confessional after having spoken to Kim about it. The proud mom of three ultimately says this about what her post-filming relationship with Scott will be like:

“I know that we are Scott’s only family, and that he feels insecure about not being able to spend time with the whole family now that the show’s ending. … I think he wants to make sure that we’re all going to see each other when we’re not filming. And I want to make sure that he knows we’ll always be in each other’s lives. I think he just needs to think of positive ways to spend his time.”

Makes sense!

Watch the full teaser clip (below):

Tough stuff — especially for somebody with Scott’s past and personal background with his own family, issues with drinking, Kourt’s budding relationship with Travis Barker, etc., etc…

What do U think, Perezcious readers? Is Kim right to be so worried about Scott? Or is Kourt taking the right course here by being comparatively more relaxed and laissez-faire about it?? And couldn’t Travis’ role in Kourtney’s life be playing a major part in how Scott feels potentially distanced and rejected by the family???

Just saying!

Sound OFF with your reaction this clip down in the comments (below), all ahead of another brand new episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians set to air on Thursday night!

James Charles Sued By Ex-Employee Who Claims He Made Her Shave His Butt!

James Charles Sued By Ex-Employee Who Claims He Made Her Shave His Butt!
Home » Legal Matters » James Charles Sued By Ex-Employee Who Claims He Made Her Shave His Butt!

It must be Thursday, because James Charles is embroiled in yet another scandal!

This week’s opponent is the beauty mogul’s former employee, Kelly Rocklein, who’s suing the YouTube star and seeking compensation for wrongful termination, disability discrimination, failure to provide reasonable accommodation, and failure to pay minimum wage for overtime hours worked.

In the suit, James’ previous creative director claims the now-21-year-old unfairly fired her and didn’t pay her for many hours of overtime. But the claims get even ickier, as Kelly alleges the star would make unreasonable requests — like asking her to shave his bottom. Yes, really!

Related: Ellen DeGeneres Says She Still Doesn’t ‘Understand’ Toxic Workplace Allegations

The accusations were made in an interview with Insider, where James’ ex-employee explained how her role had little boundaries. She recalled:

“Imagine having to go over and essentially pick James up out of bed, tell him to brush his teeth, tell him, ‘OK, what do you want to eat? OK, someone is coming to do your laundry. OK, I’m going to get your laundry, I guess. OK, time to start filming — you don’t want to film — well, we both know you have to. So please let’s think about it.’”

Yeah, not ideal.

But Rocklein wasn’t just working as James’ stand-in mother: she was allegedly his personal groomer, too. She claims the influencer once asked for help with shaving his bottom to get ready for Coachella, where he was planning to wear a revealing outfit — a task that Rocklein said made her feel “extremely uncomfortable.”

To make matters worse, she claims James wasn’t properly compensating her. Kelly explained she initially requested a six-figure salary with benefits, but was instead offered no benefits and $5,000 a month ($60,000 a year), which came with a potential bonus if she proved herself. She remembered:

“[They said] ‘We’re not going to give you any benefits, but if you work really hard, we’ll give you an annual bonus that will get you there.’”

Eventually, she was given a raise to $6,000 a month — which James later confirmed in a video that mostly dismissed her claims — but Kelly noted that the new wage didn’t account for her additional hours, which frequently came to 80 a week. She mused:

“It was sketchy. Now, with career experience, I know that people will take advantage of you. But at the time, I was like, ‘OK, well, I trust them.’”

She went on to say:

“He was making monstrous money at 18 years old, and I literally couldn’t even afford to pay my full rent. I shared a room with a friend in downtown LA. Everything I was doing with him, I was just in this losing financial game, like, ‘I’ve got to keep working. I’ve got to keep working. My bank account just bounced.’”

Kelly claimed her working relationship with Charles ended on a bad note, sharing that the star terminated her contract after she was medically signed off work. The suit alleged that while he at first seemed supportive over text, James later called and asked for a face-to-face meeting, where he “callously informed her that she was being terminated due to poor performance.”

Oh, and Rocklein alleged that Charles used the N-word in-front of her as well — a claim that was corroborated by another source who spoke to the outlet.

Video: James Admits He Unknowingly Messaged Underage Boys

Charles tried to get ahead of the scandal by posting a video a day before the story was published, calling Kelly’s allegations “absolutely ridiculous, absurd, untrue, defamatory, just the craziest things you could ever imagine.” The internet personality also accused Rocklein of taking her story to the media in an attempt to publicly pressure him into a higher settlement offer. He added:

“My team is like family to me. I love them all so much, and you guys know a lot of them from being in the back of my YouTube videos… I stand behind the fact that they are very, very well taken care of.”

Charles’ manager, Sam Mangan, told Insider that the New York native tried to settle with Rocklein, but wouldn’t meet her “outrageous” demands. He claimed:

“James made a reasonable settlement offer for an employment lawsuit, she [Rocklein] countered with an outrageous amount of money to settle and to retract her public statements, James wasn’t willing to pay her off.”

What do U think will come of this, Perezcious readers? Do you think we’ll ever get to the bottom of this? Ch-ch-check out James’ response video (below) and sound off in the comments.

Dominic West Is Terrified Lily James Cheating Scandal Will ‘Haunt’ Him During Pursuit Of Love Press Tour!

Dominic West Is Terrified Lily James Cheating Scandal Will ‘Haunt’ Him During Pursuit Of Love Press Tour!
Home » Lily James » Dominic West Is Terrified Lily James Cheating Scandal Will ‘Haunt’ Him During Pursuit Of Love Press Tour!

The past is coming back to bite!!

At least that’s what Dominic West is terrified of now that he and Lily James must promote their new BBC miniseries The Pursuit Of Love together. Given that the last time the co-stars were together it almost destroyed Dominic’s marriage to Catherine FitzGerald, we can see why he’s so nervous!

But according to an Us Weekly insider on Thursday, the actor has already made sure neither he nor Lily will dish details of their apparent fling. In fact, their PDA scandal will be kept strictly off-limits, and the 51-year-old has already “prepped Lily” on how to deal with that! The confidant explained:

“Dominic has prepped Lily prior to doing press for The Pursuit of Love and he as well won’t be answering any questions about their affair.”

Hmmm… Kinda weird that Dominic had to prep his co-star on how to conduct herself… Definitely seems to reiterate James’ prior statement that “there’s a lot to say”! As you’ll recall, the performers made headlines in October when they were spotted galavanting around Rome together, including photos where they kissed on scooters! Not to mention, Dominic wasn’t wearing his wedding ring at the time, despite his ten year marriage to Catherine.

Related: Dominic West’s Wife Gave Him An Ultimatum About Lily James After Cheating Scandal!

Upon his return home, the parents of four made a joint (and odd) statement together, holding up a sign during an impromptu paparazzi photoshoot. Their note to reporters read:

“Our marriage is strong and we’re very much still together. Thank you.”

But their connection couldn’t have been that “strong” if eyewitnesses shared with the outlet the Punisher: War Zone lead “didn’t seem to be trying to hide the fact that he was attracted” to the Mama Mia: Here We Go Again star. In fact, the singer recently broke her silence on the cheating scandal, telling The Guardian:

“Ach, I’m not really willing to talk about that. There is a lot to say, but not now, I’m afraid.”

We wonder if Dominic had already gotten to her before she spoke to the press or if his strict guidelines came after he was angered to hear of the remark? Either way, their press tour together is bound to be beyond awkward! Still, sources are insisting that the husband and wife “are going strong,” adding:

“Dominic and his wife are going strong and he’d like to keep it that way without having the past come and haunt them.”

Related: Lily James & Michael Shuman Confirm Their Relationship After Dominic West Scandal!

Seems like it’s already haunting Dominic!! But we guess he should have considered that before getting caught with a younger woman! The insider continued:

“It’s definitely an awkward time for all parties involved but everyone’s hoping the relationship between Dominic and Lily can remain professional, especially since she’s in a relationship herself.”

Well, that didn’t seem to stop them before! But hopefully now that the 31-year-old is linked with musician Michael Shuman, she won’t bat an eye at West. FitzGerald would certainly appreciate that, LOLz!

How do YOU think this press tour will go, Perezcious readers? Will it be the most awkward thing ever OR do you think the actors can be professionals? Sound OFF in the comments (below)!

New Bachelorette Katie Thurston Already Facing Backlash — See What Went Down & Why Fans Are PISSED!

New Bachelorette Katie Thurston Already Facing Backlash — See What Went Down & Why Fans Are PISSED!
Home » The Bachelor/ette » New Bachelorette Katie Thurston Already Facing Backlash — See What Went Down & Why Fans Are PISSED!

This wasn’t the greatest way for new Bachelorette Katie Thurston to introduce herself to the reality TV world!

Thurston, who was on Matt James‘ season of The Bachelor and has been tabbed to be the leading lady for season 17 of the hit reality TV show, is facing major social media backlash after a controversial recent Instagram post. On Tuesday, the new reality star took to her IG account to share a pic of friend Casandra Suarez, a fellow cast mate from James’ season pictured in the inset (above), giving her a kiss on the neck.

Related: ‘Bachelorette’ Alum Kaitlyn Bristowe Is ENGAGED! Awww!

According to screenshots captured by fans, the kiss pic was taken in front of a neon sign that read “GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS” — a reference to a hit song from the legendary 80s band Mötley Crüe.

In the caption of the since-deleted picture, Katie reportedly wrote “Whatever floats your boat.” Then, to further add speculation, Casandra doubled down in the comments section, writing:

“So did Katie actually end up with me, yes or no?”

Ummm…???

Naturally, that made fans wonder whether Katie was revealing something new about her sexuality! But the soon-to-be reality TV star quickly walked it back, replying to another comment on that post:

“I did not intend for this picture to be a statement about my sexuality. This is simply a friendship post. I’ve never spoken publicly about my sexuality nor am I doing so with this picture. Nothing but love for everyone.”

The pic — and that first walk-back non-apology — were not very well received, though.

Throughout the day, followers accused Thurston of “queer baiting” and making light of her relationship with Suarez in a way that was offensive to the LGBT community. After a few hours, the controversy caused her to eventually delete the entire post.

And later on Tuesday night, the brunette star-to-be came forward with a new apology for the incident, as well. Thurston posted this one to her IG Stories (below) with a rainbow background — so subtle.

“I am so sorry,” Katie wrote on Tuesday in her apology post. “I want to always be an ally and today I’m sorry I let you down.” / (c) Katie Thurston/Instagram

Wow!

In the aftermath of her deleted post and apology, the controversy seems to have died down quite a bit. Most recently, Twitter users were mostly coming to Katie’s defense on Wednesday, as you can see (below):

“Good grief I thought she would’ve used the F word. Glad I checked and no longer judging her, but just feel bad for her for being attacked.”

“People get offended too easily… c’mooon”

“Guess she’ll be done now. She’s entitled to her opinion though.”

“What on earth does she need to apologize for? Every day someone is apologizing for someone’s reaction to something they said or did….get thicker skin people!”

Well then… are they right with those hot takes defending the young starlet after the fact?! Or should she have apologized as she did for the insensitivity of the post in the first place??

Sound OFF with your take on the season 17 Bachelorette‘s first big f**k-up down in the comments (below)…

Josh Duhamel Emailed Armie Hammer After Replacing Him In Jennifer Lopez’s Movie — Here’s What Was Said!

Josh Duhamel Emailed Armie Hammer After Replacing Him In Jennifer Lopez’s Movie — Here’s What Was Said!
Home » Josh Duhamel » Josh Duhamel Emailed Armie Hammer After Replacing Him In Jennifer Lopez’s Movie — Here’s What Was Said!

[Warning: Potentially Triggering Content]

Before she was dealing with a big breakup, Jennifer Lopez was scrambling to recast the love interest she’d star alongside in her upcoming rom-com Shotgun Wedding. Because, let’s be honest, Armie Hammer certainly lost his sex appeal once he was met with accusations of sexual misconduct, sexual assault, and cannibalism.

While the actor stepped away from the project seemingly on his own terms, we now know his public removal from the movie wasn’t his last communication with members of the film! In fact, Josh Duhamel, the actor who took over Armie’s role in the flick, actually reached out to him before filming! And the email exchange is not what we expected AT ALL.

Related: Armie Is Dating Again — And Already LIVES With His New Girlfriend?!

So, what’d he say?? According to the Las Vegas alum, he felt uncomfortable not reaching out to Hammer about the recasting, telling Man About Town magazine:

“I know Armie a little bit, and when I knew I was gonna get the part, I emailed him and said, ‘Listen, I know you are going through it right now, I don’t like to get roles like this and I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you and good luck, get through it.’”

“Good luck”?? “Going through it”? Kind of a weird thing to say to someone accused of pretty intense sexual misconduct! Not to mention the LAPD is currently investigating the Golden Globe nominee for accusations of rape made by a woman named Effie, who is believed to be the first person to fuel social media speculation of the star’s concerning behavior. Why does it sound like Josh is talking about the 34-year-old being a little sick or going through a breakup rather than being caught in serious legal trouble!?

Josh’s remarks didn’t end there, either. Elizabeth Chambers’ estranged husband apparently responded back, with Duhamel dishing:

“He emailed me right back and said thank you so who knows, hopefully he gets through it.”

Again, that phrasing is just strange. As you’ll recall, back in January, Armie gave up his gig on Shotgun Wedding after numerous anonymous woman came forward with shocking allegations that left his own ex feeling “shocked, heartbroken, and devastated.” At the time, Hammer told E! News:

“In light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot, in good conscience now, leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic.”

However, the Call Me By Your Name lead refused to address the “bulls**t claims” made about his alleged sexual fantasies (including physical abuse, BDSM, and, yes, cannibalism). Lionsgate was also incredibly supportive of the decision to part ways, with a spokesperson telling the outlet:

“Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film and we support him in his decision.”

Makes sense! Don’t need that attention on their rom-com. For his part, the Safe Haven star was a breath of fresh air on set, even showing up on his first day a little “nervous.” The 48-year-old admitted in the interview:

“For me, it’s getting through that first day, the first couple of scenes, then you start settling in. It’s like showing up to a new school.”

Once those jitters subsided, he definitely had an AH-mazing time with co-star J.Lo! Dishing about the project in a recent appearance on The Tonight Show, the perfumer gushed:

“She’s fantastic. I’ve known her for years, and it sort of came to my attention that the job became available, and I got a chance to meet with her. It was like rekindling an old friendship with an old friend.”

Things seem to have worked out swimmingly for the film in the end — but that email exchange with Armie definitely has us rattled a little bit. Thoughts, Perezcious readers?

Was Josh just trying to be nice to his former pal or do you think he really didn’t believe any of the allegations made against Hammer? Sound OFF in the comments (below)!

As hard as it is for her to admit, Ally Brooke f**king hated being in Fifth Harmony. And after hearing her dish about the “toxicity” that plagued her environment while being involved in one of the world’s largest girl groups, it’s not hard to understand why.

The singer opened up about her complicated past in the band during her brand new podcast The Ally Brooke Show on Wednesday. She even revealed that she dealt with “mental and verbal abuse” as a member of Fifth Harmony. Ally expressed:

“It was a whirlwind. I’m going to say how proud I am of Fifth Harmony, of what we did, of what we did for music, what we did for female empowerment, what we did for girl groups. We will be in the history books, y’all.”

“But I hate saying this: My time in Fifth Harmony, I didn’t enjoy it. I didn’t love it. It was hard because there was so much going on. So much behind the scenes, so much toxicity, so much abuse, so much abuse of power, so much mental abuse, verbal abuse, and it’s just horrible and to me, it’s a shame because we were so big. I should have enjoyed myself more.”

One particularly shocking reveal came when Ally said a label head tried to “take advantage” of her when she came to him for help as the band was “breaking” up (which occurred in 2018, two years after Shawn Mendes‘ lady ditched the musical act for her own projects). The Texas native shared:

“I show up to meet with him and he gives me a freaking thong. I know what he was trying to do. I was humiliated. I was going there super vulnerable [asking for help]… At the time, that behavior was accepted.”

So not okay! The 27-year-old also admitted that she struggled with the band’s indefinite hiatus because she was always the “glue” of the group, noting:

“I was that mom. I tried to keep us together as a unit. It was very, very hard. It was a tough experience.”

Sadly, most of her time with the Work from Home ladies was “traumatizing,” especially when it came to comparisons and body image:

“I’ll look at a music video and all I’ll remember is how I felt that day. How I felt super insecure, or how I felt let down or how I felt like I wasn’t good enough. People around me told me that I wasn’t good enough, I wasn’t cool enough, I wasn’t valued, nobody cared about me. It was awful but I also try to remember the good times.”

Being constantly referred to as the “big one” among the band definitely didn’t help her self-esteem either. Harking back on comments expressed in her new memoir, Ally furthered:

“People said I was the fat one and all these things and especially in one moment when we were shooting a music video we were in bathing suits and I didn’t feel at my best. And then there were paparazzi pictures that came out and people made fun of me so much and it was horrible.”

But even the good times were laced with a “fight for our lives,” as the performers were pitted against each other, forced to be “competitive” over every opportunity — such as who sang what lines in a song. While she admitted later in their career “it did get better,” Brooke was often left “crushed” and “embarrassed” when she wasn’t selected for good singing parts. Wow…

Colton Underwood Talks Being On Grindr Pre-Bachelorette And How He Was Blackmailed Before Coming Out!

Colton Underwood Talks Being On Grindr Pre-Bachelorette And How He Was Blackmailed Before Coming Out!
Home » The Bachelor/ette » Colton Underwood Talks Being On Grindr Pre-Bachelorette And How He Was Blackmailed Before Coming Out!

[Warning: Potentially Triggering Content]

Colton Underwood opened up some more about his coming out journey.

As you may recall, the 29-year-old reality star announced his sexuality to the world during a Good Morning America interview last month after taking some time to reflect on his life.

“[The pandemic] probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they’ve been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives. And, for me, I’ve ran from myself for a long time — I’ve hated myself for a long time. I’m gay, and I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it.”

Now, the Bachelor lead has revealed he did not entirely come out on his terms. In an interview with Variety, Colton confessed he visited a spa for gay men “just to look.” But shortly afterwards, the former athlete received an email from an anonymous person claiming to have taken nude pics of him and threatened to release them to the press.

However, he said “nobody knows’ of the efforts other than his publicist, who Colton immediately forwarded the email to when it popped up in his inbox last year. Still, the situation made Underwood feel scared. Unfortunately, it got so bad at one point that the Indiana native noted how he took a ton of pills and attempted suicide last summer:

“I tried to end my life, and it didn’t work. That was the saddest and most confused and most hurt [feeling].”

Wow…

Elsewhere in the interview, the TV personality further spilled on how he has hooked up but has not had sex with men in the past. He also admitted to having Grindr account before joining Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette, saying:

“I remember feeling so guilty, like ‘What the hell am I doing?’ It was my first time letting myself even go there, so much so that I was like, ‘I need The Bachelorette in my life, so I could be straight.’”

As fans may know, Colton had been marketed as the “virgin Bachelor” for his season of the ABC dating series — so a lot of people had some questions about his past sexual experiences.

Underwood also took the time to clear the air about his relationship with ex-girlfriend Cassie Randolph. The pair broke up in 2020, but the 26-year-old later took out a restraining order against the football player for allegedly stalking and placing a tracking device on her car. Speaking on the situation, Colton said he “did not physically touch or physically abuse Cassie in any way, shape, or form.” He further explained:

“I never want people to think that I’m coming out to change the narrative, or to brush over and not take responsibility for my actions, and now that I have this gay life that I don’t have to address my past as a straight man. Controlling situations to try to grasp at any part of the straight fantasy that I was trying to live out was so wrong.”

The star continued to explain how he had been in such a “dark” place after their split but sort of recognized how the whole ordeal should not have happened:

“It’s not who I am as a human being, and it’s not how I carry myself. If there was anything I could do to take more ownership, I would. But also, out of respect to her, I don’t want to get into the details. I want this interview to be the last time I address her, because it’s not fair for her to have her name in articles every time I talk. I’m sorry, and I want her to know that I hope she has the best, most beautiful life.”

Unfortunately, that is all he could say about the situation due to a joint agreement the exes had made. But man oh man, so much to unpack from this interview!

Fans Are Convinced Dakota Johnson Ended The Ellen DeGeneres Show After Interview Clip Goes Viral Again!

Fans Are Convinced Dakota Johnson Ended The Ellen DeGeneres Show After Interview Clip Goes Viral Again!
Home » Dakota Johnson » Fans Are Convinced Dakota Johnson Ended The Ellen DeGeneres Show After Interview Clip Goes Viral Again!

While Dakota Johnson did not cause the end of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, people can’t help but think so!

Let us take you back to the insanely awkward interview on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show in November 2019 when the host asked why she wasn’t invited to the actress’ 30th birthday bash. Johnson had the best response, choosing to correct the comedian, something we’re guessing doesn’t happen often to DeGeneres:

“Actually no. That’s not the truth, Ellen. You were invited. Last time I was on the show last year, you gave me a bunch of s**t about not inviting you, but I didn’t even know you wanted to be invited. I didn’t even know you liked me!”

While the Fifty Shades of Grey star seemingly had been joking, the longtime TV vet had looked rather uncomfortable and reassured Dakota that she “liked” her enough to ask her to come on the show multiple times in the past. However, the now 31-year-old did not back down:

“But I did invite you, and you didn’t come. … Ask anybody. Ask Jonathan, your producer.”

The Finding Nemo alum later conversed with a crew member about the invitation, saying:

“I was invited? Why didn’t I go? Oh yeah, I had a thing. It was probably in Malibu. That’s too far for me to go — I think I do remember I was invited. But I really didn’t remember that until just now.”

That “thing” turned out to be a palling around with George W. Bush. Johnson then finished out the exchange by revealing Tig Notaro, who performed at her b-day party, was her favorite comedian. BURN! Relive the wild moment (below):

 

SO CRINGE, but we love it! Soon after, the interaction became infamous on social media as fans applauded Dakota for not-so-subtly putting Ellen in her place.

And now, the 63-year-old has announced she would finish the daytime series following the 19th season after nearly two decades. The longtime entertainer told The Hollywood Reporter that it was “the plan all along” — but some social media users seem pretty skeptical at the idea. Since the announcement, the 2019 appearance has resurfaced on Twitter as people claim that Johnson had completely wrecked Ellen’s show. One person commented:

“dakota johnson has done more for society by ending ellen degeneres than most of your faves have in their careers and it shows.”

Another wrote:

“Dakota Johnson really ended Ellen DeGeneres. That’s history. What a queen.”

A third said:

“Ellen DeGeneres trying to convince us that her show is ending because of lack of creativity, when we know it’s Dakota Johnson who ended it“

And it did not stop there! For your amusement, here is some more hilarious commentary (below):

The moral of this story is if Dakota Johnson invites you to her birthday party you need to be truthful about that.

it will NEVER not be funny to me that Ellen's public downfall started when she lied about not being invited to Dakota Johnson's party, when in reality she couldnt come because she was at a football game with her good friend George W Bush. https://t.co/nVJHddeaSD

Okay, the cancellation most likely has to do with poor ratings and the “toxic” work environment allegations against Ellen, but we can’t deny things have been different since the sit-down! Perhaps, Dakota’s savage takedown did have something to do with it…

Jennifer Garner ‘Doesn’t Want To Be A Part Of The Circus’ That Is Ben Affleck’s Reunion With Jennifer Lopez!

Before there was Bennifer, there was Bennifer… or is it the other way around?

Jennifer Garner never seemed to have a problem with any of Ben Affleck’s relationships post-divorce, but we wonder if things are different now that it’s Jennifer Lopez. After all, J.Lo is the woman he was with before her, and in his own words, the actor fell in love with the Alias alum on the set of Daredevil, while he was still engaged to the singer. He’s now gone from Bennifer 1.0 to Bennifer 2.0 and back again!

After the demise of J-Rod, when the exes were seen hanging out again “as friends,” a source for Entertainment Tonight said:

“Jen isn’t bothered by Ben hanging out with J.Lo or anyone else. She wants what is best for Ben.”

But now that the pair have shared a romantic getaway to Montana and we’ve officially entered Bennifer 3.0 (Or is it 1.1?), have her feelings changed? Not much, according to an E! News insider, besides maybe some annoyance at being dragged back into the narrative. She definitely “doesn’t want to be a part of the circus or media attention in any way,” the insider said.

They added:

“She’s trying to live her life and raise her kids and the last thing she wants to be doing is be dealing with Ben’s love life. Her focus is always on the kids’ happiness and Ben being a good father.”

As far as we can tell, the 49-year-old has much more important things to do than worry about an early aughts tabloid headline resurgence. On Wednesday, she posted a video to Instagram of herself and Yes Day co-star Edgar Ramirez visiting a migrant shelter in Arizona. She wrote in part:

“People are good. Along with the incredible people who welcome weary travelers to Casa Alitas, we met organizations offering legal services, doctors volunteering medical care, and we spent time with the Green Valley-Sahuarita Samaritans, who took Edgar and me to crosses marking bodies found along the migrant’s desert path—in this case a young man who had died of dehydration and, not far away, a cross honoring the recovered body of a stillborn baby. The Samaritans’ ceremony ends with ‘Presente’, acknowledging the traveler’s spirit, and our connection to them. ♥️”

The actress concluded:

“This is a thorny, politicized issue, but with babies and children at the center—it is on us to keep working together toward solutions. Thank you, Edgar, for adding your heart to our trip. And thank you to everyone in Tucson, AZ, for taking the time to tell us your stories. ♥️”

How incredible.

Next up on the docket? A visit to her native West Virginia with Senator Joe Manchin and First Lady Jill Biden to tour a local vaccination center, per USA Today. So yeah, the lady clearly doesn’t have time to be following all the Ben/J.Lo/Alex Rodriguez drama like the rest of us.

Good for her, honestly — keep up the amazing work, Jennifer!
