Teddi Mellencamp and her husband Edwin bought a new house in the Mount Olympus area of the Hollywood Hills for just over four million dollars. It seems like a good deal for the modern home with five bedrooms and six bathrooms. The home is 4,600 square feet.
Everyone finally hates Meryl Streep. Meryl Streep has been buddy buddy with Weinstein forever and never said a word when he was finally outed as a sexual predator. Then she said she didn’t know about the worst kept secret in Hollywood. Then she blamed her silence on not having social media so she had no outlet to speak out. Then she complained because Melania Trump has not spoken out. Then today she said that one day we will all be thanking the scum bucket because you know, sure it was bad for all the victims and stuff, but they were like soldiers in the war against sexual assault.
Alex Trebek had brain surgery. Apparently he had a serious fall that resulted in a few hematomas on his brain. He’s had surgery to remove them and will be taking time off from Jeopardy to recover. It’s unclear if someone will fill in, or how that will be handled.
Jennifer Hudson really needs a new publicist. I was buying what she was selling hook, line and sinker but these days every she opens her mouth she looks worse. Clearly, I was duped by some great publicist she no longer has. She told Cosmopolitan UK that living in the US she faces so many obstacles because she is rich, a single working mom (actually not single yet) and black and because she lives in a really good neighbor hood. Why is she playing the victim card so much lately?
Former Bachelor Chris Soules takes a loss in court today. His attorneys tried to claim the state law requiring the parties in a fatal crash must remain until the police come was unconstitutional and opened up the possibility of illegal search and seizure. The judge laughed them out of court. He’ll be back to face a jury in the upcoming case after running into a neighbor on a tractor in a fatal accident.
Amber Portwood has set up housekeeping with the latest con man and has posted photos of him in bed with Lean and cuddling on the couch with him. She’s also traveling with him while he works and talking about him taking care of his family. She went batshit on people on her IG who thought the posts were either too much too soon, or just kind of ookey, telling everyone to fuck off and leave her family alone. Gary must be disgusted.
Paris Hilton got engaged to some rich dude and is really in love with …. her giant ring.
Is Kathy Griffin working on a way to be a presenter at the Golden Globes? It seems unlikely to me but that is the current rumor. I feel like she would spill the beans if this was a real thing. Her IG is full of two rescues she adopted around Christmas time.
All the Southern Charm folks have cute IG photos of The Holy City covered in snow. K.Cooper Ray’s is super artistic, and all of the ones with babies dragged their kids out in snow gear.
