Katie Holmes is keeping all of the gifts Tom Cruise gave her. Tom was extremely generous to Katie during their marriage and she plans to keep the millions of dollars of jewelry, Hermes handbags and other luxurious items she received during their relationship. Tom gave Katie diamond earrings as a birthday gift one year that easily cost over $500k and he had custom design pieces made for her. Under terms of the divorce, Katie is keeping all of the jewelry, handbags, accessories, and designer clothing. What she does with it is up to her. For the time being, the jewels are being kept in a very safe place and knowing Katie, it's likely she will one day give them to Suri once she is old enough.
Okay so it turns out there were cameras in the delivery room while Snooki was in labour Sunday. However, when the real action started the reality cameras got the boot. Snooki’s fiancé Jionni did keep his personal camcorder rolling throughout the natural birth, but I’m told he kept the visuals limited to Snooki's face. It's unclear how much time the show will spend on this, but it's basically guaranteed that we're going to see at least some of this footage. And really, there's a good chance they'll make a whole episode out of it. This would air on the second season of "Snooki & JWoww", which will premiere sometime early next year.
British comedian and actor Russell Brand is apparently having quite the love affair with Geri Halliwell a.k.a. Ginger Spice of the Spice Girls. My source tells me things are getting pretty serious between them. They’ve met a few times throughout the years, but they really got to know each other during the Olympics. Things clicked between them and they’ve been more or less inseparable for the last couple of weeks.
I’m told Taylor Swift warned Katy Perry not to date John Mayer. She told her that John treated her badly when they were together, but Katy insisted that he had grown up a lot since they hooked up. Then she got dumped.
A Justin Bieber fan got into big trouble with other Justin fans for asking him if he prefers boobs or butts. A while back a fan by the name of Marlene McHammel asked Justin on video if he was a boob guy or a butt guy. Actually she whispered it in Justin's ear, but she was loud enough to be heard on the video. (And she didn't say "boobs" and "butt". She used the "T&A" words.) Justin seemed stunned by the question, and didn't answer. Well, Marlene got to meet Justin again a little while later and asked him if he was mad at her. He said, quote, "I'm not upset about that question, I swear." She also revealed that she's been getting death threats because of the video, and Justin asked fans to leave her alone. Oh, and he also finally answered the question. He said, quote, "I like both."
Can you imagine a reality TV star getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? Kim Kardashian can. And she wants to be the first. She says, quote, "I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star. So, of course I'm so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold." Kim would like you to know that she is an entertainer. Just not the kind you're used to, quote, "I'm not naïve to the fact that I'm not a singer or an actress or anything like that. I've never claimed to be anything that I'm not. I think [reality] is still a new form of entertainment that was kind of an unexpected thing. It reminds me of rap music." Yes, Kim is comparing reality TV to rap music. She says, quote, "When rap music first came out, people were like, 'We don't understand this, what is this, it's just a fad.' But rap music is definitely here to stay, and I think reality shows have proven they are as well. But when something is newer, people don't really understand it."
Now that Jessica Simpson is losing the baby weight I’m told she can’t get enough of her fiancé Eric Johnson between the sheets. After gaining 70 pounds during her pregnancy, Jessica didn’t exactly feel like getting freaky, but she has now regained her statues as sexual napalm. One of my sources told me she’s rewarding Eric for being so patient with her through the pregnancy.
WEB EXCLUSIVE BONUS SCOOP!
It's one thing to call yourself an Elvis Presley fan, but if you're willing to buy a pair of the guy's stained underwear, you've taken fandom a little too far. Just the same a British auction house is selling a pair of stained tighty whities that Elvis wore back in 1977, so people wouldn't see panty lines on his infamous white jumpsuit. The underwear is even described in the auction listing as, quote, "unwashed with some stains apparent." They're expecting someone to part with 16-grand for them. The auction takes place on September 8th.
