The Talk of Tinseltown
Long Time No Gossip

It feels like forever since I've blogged about celebrity gossip. So, let's talk about what the stars have been up to.

Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd will not return to The View next season. Sherri was a co-host for seven seasons, while Jenny only co-hosted one. I have probably watched less than ten episodes of The View. Every single time I watch, I want to throw something at the tv and tell all the ladies to SHUT THE HELL UP.

Courteney Cox is engaged to Snow Patrol band member Johnny McDaid. She announced the happy news via Twitter. She's 50. He's 37. They're so cute!

Courteney's ex, David Arquette, recently announced his engagement as well. Arquette will wed girlfriend Christina McLarty. Christina gave birth to their son back in April.

Jewel and husband Ty Murray are splitting after six years of marriage. Jewel, 40, and Murray, 44, married in 2008 after dating for a decade. They have a son who turns 3 next week.

Meshach Taylor, best known for his role as Anthony Bouvier in Designing Women, passed away at his home on Saturday. Meshach, 67, was surrounded by his mother, wife and children. I haven't caught any reruns in a while, but I love Designing Women.

Robert Downey Jr.'s son was arrested on Sunday for cocaine possession. Indio, 20, was allegedly a passenger in a car with two other people when they were pulled over by police. RDJ made the following statement after his son's arrest:

"There is a lot of family support and understanding, and we’re all determined to rally behind him and help him become the man he's capable of being," he continued to Us. "We’re grateful to the Sheriff’s department for their intervention, and believe Indio can be another recovery success story instead of a cautionary tale."

Joe Manganiello was named People Magazine's Hottest Bachelor. To each his own, but he's one of my favorites. How can you not think this man is sexy? Woo. Hoo. You can visit People's website to see the full list of bachelors.

Olivia Palermo wed German model Johannes Huebl in New York over the weekend. Olivia, a style icon, pieced together a wedding outfit by Carolina Herrera which included a cashmere sweater, white shorts and a full tulle skirt with a high slit. Her groom wore a Marc Anthony Hamburg suit. The couple have been together since 2008.

The Talk of Tinseltown is brought to you today by...

I miss this/you! I haven't watched the view since Rosie was on, and even then it was only like once a week. I also always want scream at them to shut up. I'm curious about how it's going to go down next year with Whoopi though. I didn't even know Courteney Cox was dating! I feel sad about Jewel and Ty. And Meshach!! Joe is such a beefcake! I like him!! I only really know Olivia from The Hills and she was a bitchy idiot. Haha!

Ha, love Drew.

I heard about The View changes. I have a feeling they will add a dude into the mix, which makes sense.

PS Hate is a strong word, so I will say, I can't stand Jenny. I used to love her in the Singled Out days.

I'm with you on the throwing things at The View. It was good with the original cast but seemed to go down after Metedith left. As a side note, I was home on maternity leave with Andrew when it first came on.

That's sad about RDJ's son. I hope this is his wake up call.

Karen M. Peterson said...

I'm sad. I always hoped Courtney and David would end up getting back together...

Tami said...

How I love your celebrity gossip updates! Are Olivia and her new hubby the most gorgeous couple EVER to walk the earth? I think yes

Alyssa Whitt said...

That is exactly what I would expect from Olivia! Only she could pull that off.
Love your celeb gossip posts!
