Maria Shriver is slumming it at a hotel in Beverly Hills – but watch out if you’re on the maid staff – because she has it for you!
Does Maria Shriver think she’s and INS agent – or does she just have a thing about Latina housekeepers? In a bizarre incident that could trigger legal action, sources say Maria – who’s still renting a luxury condo at the ritzy Montage hotel in BevHills – confronted a Hispanic women sent to clean the place and asked her: “Are you in this country legally?” When the stunned woman replied that she was, Maria allegedly demanded: “Show me your work papers!” Bursting into tears, the terrified women ran and made a beeline for the hotel’s Human Resources office, where she filed a complaint accusing Arnold Schwarzenegger’s estranged wife of harassment – and she’s even threatened to sue the hotel! Stay tuned. (Print Edition – 12/12)
I’m not really sure if I would call any of the actors from The Blair Witch Project stars, but apparently one of them gave up her Hollywood dreams to grow marijuana. Logical choice.
Donahue, nearly 37, writes of an unexpected career change in her new book Growgirl: How My Life After The Blair Witch Project Went to Pot, out Jan. 5.
The former scream queen discovered high-grade medial marijuana after doctors prescribed it to treat her PMS. It became a new job after the actress, frustrated by a lack of opportunities, gave up on Hollywood.
“I took all my stuff into the desert related to my acting career and burned it all,” she told the Philadelphia Inquirer. Everything except the iconic blue cap worn in Blair Witch.
“That’s the only thing I kept. I figured if things got really bad, I could always sell it on eBay,” she joked.
Yeah – sorry to say it, but Hollywood gave up on you. When you do a fake-reality movie as an actor, you’re pretty much dunzon. The director will get hired again because he made a boatload of money for the studio, but the actors are totally replaceable. Growing pot is probably a good move.
Unfortunately for Kris Humphries, since he has been associated with Kim Kardashian, even when he plays basketball, everyone hates on him.
Kris Humphries, incidental reality TV star who also happens to play professional basketball, was booed at Madison Square Garden during his New Jersey Nets’ 88-82 loss to the hometown Knicks. ESPN reports that following his entrance early in the second quarter, the Garden crowd let him have it every time he touched the ball. Later in the game, they chanted “We want Humphries” in an attempt to get him back into the game.
“I felt like Rudy,” Humphries said after the game, referring to the unlikely, iconic Notre Dame football walk-on football player who was finally put into a game his senior season.
Knicks star forward Carmelo Anthony — who had his own wedding, to reality star LaLa Vazquez, made into a TV special — was pleased with the ribbing Humphries received from the crowd.
“New York fans [are] New York fans. I like it, to be honest with you,” he said. “That’s how it should be. Our fans shouldn’t be cheering for [anybody] else and that’s how it should be.”
Ru-dy, Ru-dy! That movie was so awesome! Well, I mean he has to expect some ribbing after all the hoopla – but he just signed a big-ass contract for $8 million, so he’ll be fine.
Normally, I’m completely on board with HBO’s programming decisions, but this time I’m left a little shell-shocked as to why the f-word they are cancelling three pretty popular shows?
HBO’s unusually bold move to cancel three series in one fell swoop underscores the higher volume of original series that the pay cabler has on tap for 2012.
Programming president Michael Lombardo had been weighing the fate of comedies “Enlightened,” “Bored to Death,” “How to Make It in America” and “Hung” for months, waiting for all four to finish their respective seasons before reaching a decision. At the end, though, he believed that with so many new skeins on tap for the coming year, only “Enlightened” had enough upside to earn a renewal.
The worst thing is that “Enlightened” has BY FAR the lowest audience of all three shows. But they do have a bunch of new shows on tap, like one comedy starring Julia Louis-Dreyfuss who has
had a bunch of chances failed at doing anything since Seinfeld, so I’m sure all the new series will be really cool. F*ck you HBO.
Taylor Swift is a classic beauty, but it doesn’t mean the peeps in the U.K. aren’t on top of their anti-photoshop game!
E! News can confirm that Procter & Gamble pulled a CoverGirl print spot featuring the singer because it was among a group of ads cited by a U.K. watchdog for excessive Photoshopping.
The National Advertising Division (NAD), the ad industry’s self-regulatory body created to review factual claims in national advertisements, issued a statement saying “it has determined that the Procter & Gamble Company acted properly in discontinuing superior performance claims made in print advertising by the company for its CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara.”
Specifically, the NAD asked P&G to verify claims that the mascara has two times more volume vs. bare lashes and is 20 percent lighter than the most expensive mascara.
The watchdog also took issue with what it says are “implied messages” that consumers who use the product “would get lashes like those depicted in the advertisement and that the lashes depicted in the photograph were achieved solely by using [the mascara]…without post-production enhancement.”
I’m glad someone is stepping up to the plate on this – because these makeup ads get a little out of control – it’s basically like, hey if you’re 900 pounds, use this mascara and you look like Jessica Alba – not quite!
