The Talk of Tinseltown
Happily Ever After or Not

Britain's Prince William will marry his longtime girlfriend, Kate Middleton, next spring or summer in London. A spokesman for Prince Charles said Prince William gave Kate the engagement ring that belonged to his late mother, Princess Diana. The ring is an oval sapphire surrounded by diamonds. A lot of people think this is weird. Yes, there was definitely a scandal surrounding mom and dad's marriage, but there's nothing wrong with a young man wanting to give his future wife his mom's ring. I hope these two live happily ever after just like a prince and princess future king and queen should.

Beyonce's parents may not be getting divorced after all. Neither showed up to court so the judge dismissed the case. It's unclear if Tina and Mathew have actually reconciled. They originally split because he turned out to be the father of another woman's baby. Whoops!

Julianne Hough has been dodging romance questions for months, but on the "Ellen DeGeneres" show Tuesday, she finally opened up about her relationship with Ryan Seacrest. "Oh my gosh, he's phenomenal," she told the talk show host. "He's really romantic." She said she finds her car filled with flowers when he's not even in town. Say it with me now. AWWW!

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is in trouble for beating Gary Shirley, the father of her child, in front of their daughter. She was officially charged with two felony counts and one misdemeanor count for domestic violence and battery. Under Indiana law, an incident of domestic abuse is considered a felony if a child is present for the abuse. MTV issued a statement saying, "We are cooperating with all parties and hope for a quick and fair resolution that allows everyone involved to move forward in a positive manner."

I don't watch this show, but I know a lot of you do. Personally, I think it's a horrible example to set for young girls whether they're pregnant or not. MTV actually filmed and aired one of the incidents she's being charged with. What do you think?

Britney's parents, Lynne and Jamie, are back together after filing for divorce in 2002. Well, ain't that the sweetest thing you've ever heard?

While conveniently in Thailand delivering a speech on clean energy, Bill Clinton managed to land himself a cameo in The Hangover 2. Clinton, who’ll play himself in the film, shot his brief appearance in Bangkok, where part of the production takes place. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see this movie!

If you don't know about Eva Longoria and Tony Parker, you must be living under a rock. Well, Eva apparently filed for divorce and leaked the story of Tony's sext messages to his ex-teammate's wife without warning him about any of it. They were reportedly still working out the details when she decided to go public. Good for you, Eva. Good for you!

When The Hero first heard about this, his exact words were...


I couldn't have said it better myself.

i'm addicted to Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant. however, i really think they should stop airing the show. it seems in some ways to glorify teen pregnancy. even though it shows the hardships of it and kind of leads teens into the other direction...they are still coming up with more and more seasons of it so soon i feel that some teens are going to get preggers JUST to be on TV.

in other news...i can't WAIT for The Hangover 2 to come out. and i'm kind of grossed out by the Julianne/Ryan romance.

Mrs. M said...

I am excited to see the next Hangover too!!

Glad some people are working it out, but I know another Hollywood breakup is probably imminent, just who will it be???

Happy Monday!

Scrappy Girl said...

Love Ryan and Julianne...cute!

I can not wait for the Hangover 2. I saw Due Date with Zack G. and it was SO funny. He is my new fave.

Impulsive Addict said...

When is Ryan going to admit that he's gay? I'm pretty sure he is. I have an excellent gaydar.

I personally think that airing a show called '16 and Pregnant' is just WRONG. Again, IN MY OPINION, I feel like it's just prompting more girls to try and get pregnant so they can get on tv. I am all for whatever punishment she gets. She deserves it for demonstrating physical violence in front of her child.

I can't WAIT to see Hangover 2!!!!

I agree with Beth. I'm addicted to these shows, but in all honesty I think it's almost glorifying teen pregnancy. It's saying "oh look, the dad won't be around, but MTV will give you a paycheck since you're on the show". What is that teaching our young people?

And the story of Amber beating Gary? Look how much publicity this is getting! She's literally famous now. Everyone is all up in her business. She could go to prison! Yet MTV still shows the episode and still has it up online!

I'll admit, I love the shows, but maybe the point of view on them should be changed.

We need more stories shows like Caitlin and Tyler-not teen moms that don't give a shit about their kids!

Karen M. Peterson said...

There's a tiny little typo in your Eva Longoria/Tony Parker section that had me momentarily confused. Evan Longoria is a pro baseball player. I was like, Now THAT'S a good scandal!

I love that Prince William gave Kate his mother's ring. For one thing, it's a stunning ring. For another, I love how he said he did it so that he can feel like his mother is a part of this. Tear.

Unknown said...

Personally, I'm sick and tired of all these reality shows glorifying bad behavior. Since when did having big hair or being a slut qualify you to get a tv show?

Macey said...

The Hangover 2...I can't wait! I wish I lived by you so we could go together. That would be fun!!!

I think Prince William giving Kate his mother's ring is really sweet. And Ryan Seacrest grosses me out for some reason. Ick!

Michelle said...

What??? Beyonce's dad is the father of a baby not in the fam'? That is c-r-a-z-y...well not so much, but still...surprising.

I just watch Teen Mom for the first time last night. I don't have a problem with them airing it, because they're not really glamorizing it. (It actually makes me not want to have kids haha)

Oh my gosh, yes! Who would cheat on Eva Longoria?? Idiot.

By the way, have you seen the Tony Parker/Eva Longoria video from a few years ago, where they recreate the Summer Lovin song from Grease? And the woman he's sexting with plays Rizzo? For real. It's out there.

Olivia Carter said...

Amen to letting Prince Will give his girlfriend his moms ring. Sad that everyone is poo-pooing it.

And Amen about Eva Longoria. What is wrong with these famous men?

Unknown said...

I was really surprised about Eva Longoria divorcing - what is up with him, IDIOT!!?? And I was only reading today about them keeping their relationship spicy with modern technology - emails and texts. Shame he was also doing that with someone else!!

I can understand why Prince William gave Kate Middleton his mother's ring - and altho a tiny part of me feels it's a little odd, I think it was a lovely gesture and in the interview they did, he explained it beautifully. He was after all very close to his mother - and I am sure Kate is fine with it.

Ryan S is not that famous over here....but I thought he was gay! What do I know??!!

I do watch the Teen Mom series and have been fascinated by it...sadly! I have read some of the details of the Gary/Amber case....what a mess! Those two definitely should not have been together, ugh.


SharleneT said...

Men have been giving their fiances their deceased mother's rings for centuries, and it's always been considered a beautiful gesture. I don't understand the problem with this... I wish them all the best and it's very obvious they are very much in love... Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving and come visit when you can...

Shorty said...

I love hearing about Prince William and Kate! And I love it that he gave Kate his mother's ring. How sweet is that? I would be honored to receive a gift like that.

TLF said...

Teen Mom is some throw down white trash! I tried to watch one episode and changed the channel. Being a teen mom myself, it pisses me off that they find the biggest shit tossin trailer park girls for this show. Not every teen pregnancy is trash city or turns out horrible. MTV can NEVER bring the positive!

AMY said...
