Amy Schumer and John Mayer have been on several dates. A source tells the site; ”Amy and John have been friends for years but they have been growing closer over the past few months. They are both completely down to earth, and that’s why they get on so well. It is early days but they have been on a few dates and she even shared a photograph of themselves on Instagram last month after they attended a comedy gig together. John is in the middle of a world tour and she is filming, which has made it hard for them to see each other. But they are talking a lot and they have been flirting on Instagram. They are definitely having fun.”
Nickki Reed has revealed that she and her husband Ian Somerhalder are going to go radio silent when they welcome their first child later this year. “We’ll take the baby’s first month for ourselves. After the baby arrives, we’re doing one month of silence. Just the three of us, no visitors, and we’re turning off our phones too, so there’s no expectation for us to communicate,” she tells Fit Pregnancy and Baby. “Otherwise, every five minutes it would be, ‘How are you feeling? Can we have a picture?’ You don’t get those first 30 days back, and we want to be fully present.” The 29-year-old actress goes on to say that she’s much more relaxed since getting pregnant–a change that Somerhalder appreciates. “Ian jokes that he wants to keep me pregnant forever,” she admits.
Lauren Conrad is reportedly on course to have the lowest-selling cover in the history of People magazine. (Ouch.) Sources tell Page Six that last week’s issue, which offered exclusive photos of the former Hills star and her baby, has sold just 300,000. However, a People spokesperson counters, “It’s way too early to tell how that issue sold since it is still on newsstands. It is ridiculous to speculate on final numbers, and we aren’t worried about it.” If it’s any consolation to Conrad, People issues featuring cover stories on Pope Francis and Hillary Clinton were also flops, selling 450,000 copies and 500,000 copies, respectively.
TMZ reports that Usher is privately firing back against one woman’s claims that he potentially exposed her to genital herpes by sleeping with her after a concert. Sources tell the outlet that the R&B star has told friends there’s no way he would have engaged in sexual contact with Quantasia Sharpton, who came forward this week as part of a group lawsuit against him, because “he’s just not into her type.” (Presumably, that means Sharpton is too big for his tastes.) Insiders add that while Usher admits he may have pulled her onstage at one of his shows, he can’t remember for sure–but he definitely never hooked up with her. “[He] looks to bring a diverse group of people up onstage, not just supermodels,” says one source. “[It’s] an esteem booster.”
People think of celebrities as rich, coddled snowflakes. But a lot of them really put the work in and made sacrifices to get where they are. Like Halle Berry . . . who had to live in a HOMELESS SHELTER before her big break.
Halle moved to New York City with a little money in her pocket from a modeling gig, but she was broke in three months. She says, quote, “I called my mother and asked her to send me some money, and she said no, and that subsequently led to a year of not speaking to her because I was so upset that she wouldn’t help me.”
Instead, Halle’s mom told her, quote, “If you want to be there, then you work it out.” And of course, that’s what Halle did. She worked her way out of the shelter waitressing and bartending. And now she knows that it was, quote, “one of the best things [my mother] did for me.”
Tiger Woods reached a deal in his DUI case. He’s agreed to enter a ‘DUI diversion’ program, which is offered to first time offenders. As part of the deal, he will plead guilty to the lesser charge of reckless driving . . . and in exchange, he gets off with just a year of probation, along with some DUI education classes. And on top of that, if he meets all the requirements without any more issues, the reckless driving conviction will be wiped from his record. Tiger was a MESS when he was pulled over, but he insists he wasn’t drunk, it was just an “unexpected reaction to mixed prescription medication.”
When Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt broke up, it seemed really sudden . . . but also very FINAL. Especially the way she tried to paint him as an unfit dad and all that. But hey, people get mad, they do stuff . . . right? And sometimes they take it back. “Us Weekly” says that’s where Angelina is right now, and the divorce is ON HOLD.
A source says, quote, “She’s still so in love with him . . . It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out.” But it’s not just a change of heart on her part . . . Brad quit drinking and straightened some things out, and she noticed. The source says, quote, “He knew he had a problem that he had to take care of. And that’s all she ever wanted.”
It’s hard to tell exactly what the new Jennifer Lawrence movie “Mother!” is about . . . but it’s got a strong horror vibe, and it looks pretty intense. It’s by Darren Aronofsky, who wrote and directed “Black Swan”.
In a new “Vogue” profile, Jennifer says she had to, quote, “go to a darker place than I’ve ever been in my life” for her performance, and one time she hyperventilated and dislocated a rib. She says, quote, “I ended up getting on oxygen. I have oxygen tubes in my nostrils, and Darren’s like, ‘It was out of focus; we’ve got to do it again.’ And I was just like, ‘Go [eff] yourself.'”
It was such a rough shoot for Jennifer that the crew set up a KARDASHIAN TENT she could go to in order to decompress. She says, quote, “It was a tent that had pictures of the Kardashians and ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ playing on a loop . . . and gumballs. My happy place.”
Even though Darren put her through hell, you’ve probably heard that they’re DATING now. They started after the movie was finished, but there was a connection during the shoot. At least on her end. Quote, “We had energy. I had energy for him. I don’t know how he felt about me.” She says he’s brilliant and an amazing father to his son from his relationship with RACHEL WEISZ. And he doesn’t brag about Harvard. She says, quote, “I normally don’t like Harvard people, because they can’t go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard. He’s not like that.”
There’s only one problem: He doesn’t understand her obsession with reality TV. Quote, “He just finds it so vastly disappointing.”
One last, unrelated note: Jennifer’s BFF AMY SCHUMER gave a quote for this article, and it’s classic. She said, quote, “Jen is funny like a comic. She understands the rhythm of a joke and how to play both the straight man and the idiot. “She has one of the darkest senses of humor I’ve ever encountered and it’s delightful. My only problem with her is that she’s fat.” (!!!)
