GINGER JUICE : FRIDAY August 10, 2012
Both Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are scheduled to present at the MTV Video Music Awards which air live on September 6th. Something tells me that Kristen will be a no show. Regardless, a source says that JOKES about the cheating scandal are banned.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are having a huge family gathering at their home in France this weekend. It's supposedly a 50th anniversary party for Brad's parents, but rumors are flying around the Internet that it's really a wedding. Especially because one of the guests is the jeweler who made Angelina's engagement ring.
Kanye West has recorded a song called "Perfect [B-word]", which he wrote about his girlfriend Kim Kardashian. The song hasn't been released yet, but it doesn't seem to be getting any ups from 50 Cent. He told "XXL" magazine, "if that man feel like she perfect, then she's perfect. He could mean it and you'll end up singing the words to it because he's Kanye. You know how it is? One man's trash is another man's treasure." Did he just call Kim Kardashian trash?
Lady Gaga is on the cover of the new issue of "Vogue". In her interview, she opens us up to the secret life of Gaga. She says, "I'm a complete free spirit, so, even though you don't see it, I still find time to have sex at night on the beach when no one's around or roll into a bar and get messed up, and dance with my top off. It's just that no one ever sees that, because I have great real friends who never let me do it when I would get caught."
Whitney Houston would have turned 49 yesterday. And to mark the occasion, Bobbi Kristina and her boyfriend Nick Gordon got Whitney's initials tattooed on their wrists -- and they aren't really good looking.
Jessica Simpson's dad, Joe, was arrested for DUI last Saturday night. He was booked and spent the rest of the night behind bars. Then released without having to post bail the next morning.
In a radio interview yesterday, Alanis Morisette hinted that she might be in negotiations to be a judge on "American Idol" next season. When asked if "Idol" has ever contacted her about judging, she said, "I'm in talks with SOMEBODY right now, I can't name any names, but I'm pretty excited at the thought of doing it more formally. I still have to investigate further, and that's all I can say." Meanwhile, the "New York Post" is reporting that "Idol" has asked DIDDY if he's interested. But, sources tell E! News that he's considered a "long shot."
Kelly Ripa didn't hold back when talking to "In Touch Weekly" about her beaty regimen, "I work out every day. I don't overeat. I try to drink water, but I prefer wine, and when all else fails, I get Botox injected right into my forehead as much as possible!" And her kids basically tell her when she needs another shot, "It's when my kids start asking me if I'm mad at them, and I say, 'Why do you think I'm mad at you?' They say it's because I'm frowning. I go, 'Oh no! I am? I'll be right back!'"
Amy Winehouses's ex-husband Blake is in a coma after a suspected drug overdose. He was rushed to the hospital last Friday after his girlfriend found him choking in bed. He has suffered major organ failure and is currently on life support. He's 30 years old. ** Blake and Amy met in 2005. They married in 2007, and divorced two years later. A lot of people blame Blake for getting Amy hooked on drugs, and that includes Amy's parents, who've rarely had a kind word to say about him. But yesterday Amy's dad MITCH Tweeted, "Terrible news about Blake this morning. Remember Amy loved him. Let's pray for his recovery." That's a solid gesture when you consider this: In his recent book "Amy, My Daughter", Mitch called Blake, "the biggest low-life that God ever put breath into." That book just came out in June of this year.
It's Day 14 of the "2012 Summer Olympics" - all day on NBC and its sister networks.
