Last night Robert Pattinson did is first interview since Kristen Stewart cheated on him. He hit up the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Parts were awkward, but definitely entertaining! Jon started off the interview by whipping out a tub of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. He said to Rob, "We're just a couple-a gals talking." Within a few minutes Jon made reference to Rob and Kristen breaking up. At one point Robert admitted he didn't really know what to say because, quote, "I'm cheap, I didn't hire a publicist." The closest anyone came to making a direct comment about the scandal was when Jon said in a "sassy chick" kind of voice, quote, "Boy, you are better off! Kick her to the curb!" Rob was actually booed outside the studio, because he didn't get out of his car to meet with his waiting fans. He did sign autographs later that night though, at the Museum of Modern Art. And he told fans, quote, "Thank you, guys, for being here."
Jeremy Renner has joined the growing list of celebrity Kardashian haters. In an interview with a British newspaper, Jeremy was discussing the pitfalls of fame, when the reporter mentioned the Kardashians, that set Jeremy off. He said, quote, "Oh, all those ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name. Those stupid, stupid people." This makes Jeremy the fourth actor in recent memory to take a shot at the Kardashian family. Jon Hamm from Mad Men started the ball rolling when he told "Elle" magazine, quote, "Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated." Then Jonah Hill joined in when he added, quote, "The fact that the Kardashians could be more popular than a show like 'Mad Men' is disgusting. It's super disgusting to be a part of that culture." Then James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, piled on when he told "GQ" magazine, quote, "Look at the Kardashians, they are worth millions. Millions! I don't think they were that badly off to begin with but now look at them. You see that and you think, 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like [an effing] idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions?' I'm not judging it. Well, I am, obviously."
Kim Kardashian wants to finalize her divorce so she can marry Kanye West already! Tomorrow there’s going to be a scheduled status conference for Kim and Kris’ divorce. Kris has already been deposed, but Kim hasn't been yet. Kim has told her lawyer that the case is dragging because Kris is determined to keep his name in the press and drag her name through the mud. Kim is ready to get engaged to Kanye, but doesn't want to until her divorce is finalized. Kim feels that Kanye is the man she is going to spend the rest of her life with, and she doesn't want to wait. Kim's deposition will likely take place in the next few weeks, but she feels nothing is going to be gained by it.'' Kim says, “When this whole life is done, and it’s just the two of us sitting somewhere when we’re 80, you want to have things to talk about that you have in common. I think that’s something maybe I didn’t value as highly as a quality I cared about in someone.”
Okay, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie wedding rumours are now resurging for this weekend. Supposedly, the happy couple have commissioned wedding bands from their jeweler worth about $784,000 each. Here's how my source described them, quote, "They are matching rose gold bands with a tablet-cut diamond in them and their vows to each other engraved in them. You can't see it with the naked eye but they both know they're there."
Anderson Cooper is on vacation right now… possibly with the guy who cheated on him. Since being on vacation Anderson, who is normally a frequent Tweeter, has only Tweeted once. He’s in Croatia with his longtime boyfriend Ben Maisani. Over the weekend, pictures of Ben kissing another man hit the web. One of my sources told me Anderson and Ben do not have an open relationship. It could be another public cheating scandal… Just one that no one really cares about!
Gerard Butler, you know him from 300 and The Bounty Hunter has decided to give singing a try. Apparently he’s been a closet singer for years and has decided that the time is right to try doing it professionally. In fact, he’s in the process of making what he hopes will be a bestselling CD. He’s turned to Johnny Depp for advice on putting a first-rate band together. Johnny and Gerry have jammed together, and Johnny introduced Gerry to some of his musician friends, including Marilyn Manson and Jack Black.
