Congrats to Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, who welcomed a baby girl Friday, reports Us Weekly. Back in February, the 40-year-old actress brushed off pregnancy rumors on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” saying, “It’s so ridiculous. It all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport. You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked, right? And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it, so I opted out.” Once her bun in the oven became public knowledge, she kept a low profile and covered her bump with several layers of clothing. Gosling, meantime “goes out and gets the groceries,” a source told Us Weekly. “Ryan has already stepped into the role of caring father-to-be.” The two started dating in 2011 after costarring in “The Place Beyond the Pines.”
The doctor who performed the biopsy on Joan Rivers’ vocal cords paused to take a selfie in the procedure room just moments before the comedian went into cardiac arrest. A staff member of the Yorkville Endoscopy clinic told investigators about the questionable behavior, reports CNN. After the endoscopy test was performed by medical director Dr. Lawrence Cohen, a biopsy was reportedly done by her own ear, nose and throat doctor on her without her prior consent. Dr. Cohen has since resigned in the wake of her death.
Rihanna lashed out at CBS after execs yanked her song “Run This Town” to open the football game last week amidst coverage of the Ray Rice domestic abuse story and then saying it wanted to use it this week. “CBS, you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? No, f*** you! Y’all are sad for penalizing me for this,” she tweeted. “The audacity.”
Here’s one you don’t here often…”My grandfather was a polygamist.” That’s what Julie Chen admitted on CBS’ “The Talk” yesterday, noting he had “nine wives, six of who bore him children. He had 11 children that we know of and countless mistresses. As you can imagine, this was very hard on my grandmother. It was hard on my mom. She never knew when her dad was coming home. She tried ot keep this secret form me and my two sisters for a long time…For the record, I did get her permission to tell this secret.” But he eventually tried to make peace with his family. “On his deathbed, he apologized to my mom.” Sounds like someone needed to ring the ratings bell!
“The Talk” has been getting competition already from “The View.” Just two days into the new season, Rosie O’Donnell and Nicolle Wallace were spiking ratings, while sparring over President Bush’s handling of Karina. When Wallace pointed out he said in his book he was wounded by the criticism of that, O’Donnell quipped, “I think he was very upset in the plane as he FLEW OVER Katrina.” At least Bush had a foreign policy, he didn’t have IRS scandals, he attempted to protect our border and Putin actually respected him. Sure he showed up late to a hurricane scene, but Obama has showed up late to every aspect of his job.
Happy Hump Day!
