Not many people are on Kristen Stewart’s side in this whole cheating scandal thing… but a producer-friend of hers has spoken out in her defence. Giovanni Agnelli, produced one of Kristen's movies, "Welcome to the Rileys". He says Kristen's affair with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders was never consummated. He says, quote, "I'll say right now what the manipulative media isn't saying, Kristen Stewart did not have any type of sex with Rupert Sanders." Truth be told, I don’t think anyone has said they have had sex… Just the same it’s nice to have that confirmation I guess (if you believe it).
Meanwhile, Robert Pattinson, who has been in hiding since the scandal broke, reportedly wants the dog he and Kristen adopted together. The dog’s name is Bear and they rescued it and helped saved its live when it suffered from Parvo disease as a puppy. Rob is needing a friend right now and Bear is about the only friend he can truly trust at this time. My source says however that Kristen won’t give up Bear easily since he means so much to her as well.
In other news, my source tells me if Casper Smart asked Jennifer Lopez to marry him tomorrow she would do it. They talk all the time about marriage and babies. Apparently J Lo loves getting married! I’m told the key to their relationship is that although J Lo is an A-lister, Casper isn’t afraid to say what he thinks or stand up to her and she likes that. Friends are bracing for a wedding announcement soon.
Amber Heard, the woman Johnny Depp reportedly left his partner, Vanessa Paradis for, has apparently dumped him. My source tells me she couldn’t take being called a homewrecker and decided no relationship is worth her reputation.
Unfortunately it might be a little late for that. Vanessa has actually been in seclusion since news of her and Johnny broke. She hates the fact that the media has portrayed her as this vixen that tore Johnny’s family apart. She feels she didn’t do anything to deserve it.
Wondering how much Paul McCartney got paid for the Olympic Opening Ceremonies? The answer is, not much! In fact he was paid one British pound, which works out to about $1.57 for us. This was a token fee obviously, all the performers donated their time, as they should have. Right now it’s rumoured that One Direction will play the Closing Ceremony. No word on whether or not they would each receive a pound or if they would have to split it between the whole band.
Hey, Pitbull went to perform at that Wal-Mart in Alaska. He ended up there thanks to an Internet campaign in which Pitbull would visit the Wal-Mart that got the most likes on Facebook. Some wise-ass journalist started his own campaign to make the Kodiak store, which is the most remote Wal-Mart in the country, the winner. He succeeded. Instead of being upset, Pitbull brought the guy along with him. His day included meeting with residents and performing at a local Coast Guard base. Pitbull can make lemonade out of lemons! Good to know!
A young man named Mike Oliveri who suffers from muscular dystrophy happened to meet Paris Hilton about two weeks ago. She hung out with him and was really kind to him, but that's not where this story ends. Soon after that, Paris hit up his website MikeyWheels.com and started chatting with him. During that chat she gave him $5,000. And the money was seriously needed, because Mikey's care costs thousands of dollars a month. Mike made a YouTube video explaining just how much Paris has done for him and he even claims her unsolicited donation saved his life. He says, quote, "There's a lot of really bad and horrible press about Paris, and I don't think anybody really knows her at all. And until you know her . . . I hope the whole world can really understand what an amazing person you are."
The average person really doesn't understand how much good celebrities do, because it's often not reported. That's why you can really put your foot in your mouth criticizing them for not doing more. That's exactly what happened to one of Oprah Winfrey’s Twitter followers who Tweeted, quote, "When are u going 2 give back 2 the ghettos in america?" Oprah responded, quote, "When are u? I've put 500 African American men thru college. And u sir?" What this guy didn't realize is that Oprah is the largest individual donor to Morehouse College, a historically black, all-male University. She's given them more than $12 million since 1989.
