Everybody knows that when it comes to trashy blogs and rags like Mediafakeout and The National Enquirer, you have to take their stories with a grain of salt. I will say that every now and again the Enquirer has gotten it right with a breaking story, but I digress.
Anyways, the rag is reporting that Neil Patrick Harris and his fiance, David Burtka, who have two children together aren’t on speaking terms—and have even called off their wedding.
“They’re barely speaking, and as of now there’s no wedding in the immediate future,” revealed an insider.
Allegedly the two came to blows when the How I Met Your Mother actor became angry over something David said. The tabloid claims they were on their way to a party in Tinseltown the day before the SAG Awards when the fight erupted. They were both intoxicated when they arrived at the party and didn't even go home together after it was over.
”They walked into the party mad at each other,” recalled the insider. “They both threw back a couple of whiskeys, and that only made things worse.”
Meanwhile, David – an E! Network correspondent and chef is said to be shattered. “Neil’s still mad and David is terrified he’s going to lose him,” confided the insider.
If they do part ways, expect a nasty custody battle over their 2-year-old twins, Gideon and Harper that would make Melissa Etheridge's bitter split with Tammi Lynn Michaels look like an episode of Sesame Street. i should point out that The Enquirer also had NPH and David broken up last year as well, but being that we live in an ADD society they probably felt most had forgotten about that story. I should also point out that coupes who are pissed off at each other don't go on cruises together, which is where they are right now.
NPH heard about the story and took to Twitter to put the rumors to rest: “The Nat Enq is cray cray,” Harris tweeted last night. “We’ve never had a wedding date, just engaged (Prop 8 and all). We’re on a cruise as I write. He’s rad. All good.”
I actually like NPH and David together and hope they don't believe they are breaking up. It remains to be seen if the Enquirer story is true, but if Neil says all is good then I believe him. If the so-called insider reported they were fighting and calling off the wedding, wouldn't there be details as to what the fight was about that caused NPH to get so pissed he wanted nothing to do with David?
I also found it quite offensive when the rag referred to David as Neil's arm candy, as if he's some two-buit hustler he just met last week.
Says the source: “David made the mistake of complaining that he was sick of the showbiz grind,” explaining, “He feels that from the Emmys to the Grammys to the Oscars, Hollywood is just one big trophy fest, and he accused Neil of using him as ‘arm candy.’”
David works in entertertainment so why would he complain about all the awards shows, especially if he's a correspondent for E! It seems The National Enquirer is slipping when it comes to doing their homework.
Fresh out of rehab, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone, where he opens up for the first time about his battle with substance abuse. If you remember over the summer Green Day performed at the iHeartRadio festival where the frontman had a meltdown on stage. He immediately headed to rehab and canceled tour dates to promote their latest rock album trilogy.
On his "gruesome" detox process: “That was gruesome, laying on the bathroom floor and just feeling like… I didn’t realize how much of that stuff affected me,” he said.
“I’m a blackout drinker. That’s basically what happened,” he said by way of explaining his now-infamous Justin Bieber tantrum.
Billie also admits that not only was he drinking heavily, but he also was taking an insane amount of prescription pills to help him with anxiety and depression: “I started combining them to a point where I didn’t know what I was taking during the day and what I was taking at night. It was just this routine. My backpack sounded like a giant baby rattle.”
I'm glad Billie is back to normal and I really feel people really need to educate themselves on the dangers of prescription pills and mixing it with alcohol. Prescription drugs is a rising epidemic in this country and too many people are dying at the hands of it, moreso than street pharmaceuticals. As I said before I'm glad Billie is recovered and for all you Green Day fans the band will resume touring on March 10.

Jersey Shore reality star JWOWW, who can be seen on the second season of MTV's Snooki & JWOWW strikes a pose for Adam Bouska's NOH8 campaing. I'm sure it hurt something fierce getting that duct tape off them implants, unless her titties are so numb she won't feel a thing.
Ever since Anderson Cooper officially came out of the closet last year, it seems we can't get him to shut up about it. To be fair I'm glad he's talking more about being gay because his haters would get upset that he wouldn't talk about it at all. Anyways, the silver fox stopped by Watch What Happens Live on Monday, which is hosted by his BFF Andy Cohen and gave some advice to self-hating celebrities who are hiding deep in the closet.
I never had a problem with Anderson not disclosing his sexuality to the public until recently, because although it wasn't a big secret in media, he was traveling to third-world countries where homosexuality is punishable by death so it was smart for him to protect his image especially when you are traveling to countries that does not follow western law.

It's been a minute since we've seen comic legend Chris Rock telling some jokes in front of a live audience, and word on the street is that he will be heading out on tour with another comic legend -- none other than Dave Chapelle.
AllHipHop reports that Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle performed togerther last night at The Comedy Cellar in New York City, and the stand-up veterans teased the crowd with the news that they may be taking their two-for-one comedy show on tour together.
The Comic’s Comic also reported that what was originally a surprise 45-minute set by Chappelle became an even bigger shock when Rock joined him to perform.
“Aw, you lucky motherfu**ers ,” Rock told the audience.
After the two kept the audience in stitches with jokes about Kevin Hart, Prince, President Obama, and unsuccessfully tried to text Jay-Z about meeting later for spaghetti dinner, Chappelle had an a-ha moment and said that the hour-long performance may be the perfect combination for an extended tour.
“This could be the show,” said Chappelle.
“I’m in,” responded Rock.
I think if these two did head out on a joint tour it would be the biggest comedy tour in history. I really hope this is not a joke and they make this a reality, and once the once-in-a-lifetime tour wraps it could end up as a special on HBO or on DVD. Chris is about to work on a new movie so I'm sure while he's in his trailer waiting for the crew to set up the next shot he can work on some jokes.
And the stupidity from Florida continues. Two men were arrested and are awaiting trial for having bareback sex with a 16-year-old boy they met on Grindr and did not disclose their HUV+ status with him.
On December 12, Pembroke Pines residents Darrell Allen Evans, 40, and Huy Kien Trinh, 32, met an unnamed teen on Grindr and invited him over for an assignation.
After hanging out in the hot tub and getting him relaxed with poppers, Evans and Trinh lied to the teen that they were HIV-negative.
The two men have been charged with several counts of sexual assault of a minor, and not disclosing their HIV status (a crime in Florida). The Sun Sentinel is reporting that the authorities had considered filing attempted-murder charges.
“Heavens knows how many victims we may have out there,” Assistant State Attorney Eric Linder said during the hearing, remarking that after the men waived their Miranda rights, they told police that they “regularly meet other males and engage in unprotected sex without notifying them that they are HIV-positive.”
At a January 11 court hearing, Judge Ian Richards set Evans’ bond at $410,000 and Trinh’s at $420,000, and have been banned from using the Internet, associating with minors or having sex with anyone, period. Can a judge actually ban someone from using the internet? If so, then maybe the same sentence should be applied to internet bullies who use the web to pick on people they wouldn't have the balls to pick on in person.
“I do consider you a threat to the community,” Richards said, stopping short of charging each man with attempted murder and instead fashioning their bond to reflect their failure to disclose the potentially fatal virus.
Since they couldn't post bail, they will sit in jail until their scheduled court date.
It's good to know that in the past four years, more than 150 Americans have been arrested for exposing sexual partners to HIV. Because of the nature of some statutes, though, even those who disclosed their status—or who didn’t, but used condoms and didn’t transmit the virus—can be convicted in some states.
There is no word if the youth contacted HIV from his Grindr hookups, but whatever prompted him to go to the police I hope people know it's not a game to be having unsafe sex and not telling your partner your status. I also feel that if you are going to have sex to always wrap it up because contracting HIV or any kind of STI is no joke. I'm also wondering why no one mentioned the fact that an underage boy is hooking up for sex with older men on Grindr?
One of the most unlikeliest of musicians Kelly Rowland and Michael Bolton have teamed up on a new song together and before you think that MB has decided to go all hip hop on us, it's basically a remake of the Ashford and Simpson written, Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell Motown classic, Ain't No Mountain High Enough.
The track wil be featured on Michael's upcoming Motown compilation album, Ain’t No Mountain High Enough: A Tribute to Hitsville. Take a listen to the track below...
I have no idea what an Origin magazine is, but I do know that Vampire Diaries bad boy Ian Somerhalder looks hot on the cover.
“Me& butchhogan (on Instagram) shoot’n @OriginMagazine Cover in my living room-shot by @onebosschick” the 34-year-old The Vampire Diaries star tweeted during the shoot.
“On the phone with founder of Origin Magazine doing an article for the cover. I’m really proud to be on this cover” Ian added.
Origin magazine is a publication that prides itself on “bringing worlds together, building bridges, and giving consciousness an expanded voice in national media.”

I've rolled my eyes when Justin Bieber started trying to act like an honorary stereotypical black guy by hanging around non-famous rappers (who were immediately blamed for his wannabe bad boy behavior), sagging his jeans and allegedly getting caught with weed. But this look is just plain ridiculous. Now the Beebz is walking around dressed like an extra from Cruising while wearing a gas mask like he's one of MJ's kids. Also someone needs to tell him you only draw more attention to yourself when you cover your face rather than just walking out like a normal person.
Shortly after it was announced that Megan Fox has kissed and made up with Michael Bay and has been cast in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot (no word on who she will be playing but my obvious guess would be she's reporter April O' Neil), now comes word that the film, which was slated for release on May 16, 2014, has been moved to June 6.
For those of you who need a memory refresher, Megan's and Michael's falling out occurred when they both had a disagreement on the set of the second Transformers movie, which Megan called him out in public as “a nightmare to work for”. Well since he is only producing the film they're not technically working together so I'm sure she will be fine.
My guess is that they wanted to take their time with the film and not rush production, but it also means it has plenty of time to bring in the fast box office cash, since it will be sandwiched one week after Disney•Pixar's The Good Dinosaur and one week before Universal's Jurassic Park IV.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman with a screenplay by Josh Appelbaum, Andrew Nemec, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and John Fusco, based on the characters created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman. Here is a synposis of the film: Aliens invade Earth and inadvertently spawn a quartet of mutated reptile warriors, the Ninja Turtles, who rise up against them to defend the world.
While I do welcome a TMNT reboot, I am nervous for two reasons: One being it's produced by Michael Bay. Now don't get me wrong there have been a few of his movies that I have found less annoying, like Armageddon and the first Transformers, but for the most part his films are shit and usually the movies he produces fare no better. Second, when I see that you have five writers credited for writing a script (I wonder how many more uncredited tried their hand at writing the script), I see that as a red flag. I don't want to turn into one of those snobby fanboys where I judge a movie before I've seen at least a trailer or the film in the theater, so I will patiently wait for it to come out next year to draw my own conclusion.
The blogosphere exploded on Monday when it was revealed that Oscar winner Kathy Bates had signed on for American Horror Story season 3.
While there is no word on exactly what supernatural theme producer Ryan Murphy will be taking on in the new season (rumor has it the story will involve witches and the Salem witch trials), he did speak to TVLine about her character.
“Oh, Kathy’s never [played] someone this bad,” Murphy said. Her [character] is a bad, bad woman!” he said, adding that she'll be “five times worse than [her] Misery character — which is why she liked it."
"When I pitched this to Kathy, her mouth was drop-jawed because what I was pitching actually happened," Murphy continued. “It’s a true event… You’ll see. It’s some good stuff.”
The show, which stars Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters in new roles will begin shooting all 13 episodes this summer, and the new season is set to premiere in October.
Besides The Walking Dead and Shameless, AHS is one of my favorite shows and while the second season was a bit all over the place with the different themes, I really hope the new season will stick to a particular theme and focus more on story rather than shock value.
Eve switches from being She Bad Bad to spitting some inspirational words of wisdom on her new single “Make It Out This Town” which features vocals from Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship. MIOTT is the official first single from her first album in over a decade, Lip Lock.
Personally it's not the strongest track I've heard from Eve, but I think if you're going to create a song that inspires the next generation, that always gets a pass in my book.
Lip Lock will be available to purchase on May 14 and will feature appearances from Snoop Lion, Dawn Richard, Chrisette Michele, Pusha T, and Juicy J.
A few weeks ago it was announced that some of your favorites such as Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Anna Paquin, and Shawn Ashmore would be returning to X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is the sequel to X-Men: First Class. It also has everyone wondering if Halle Berry would be returning as Storm, which a few weeks ago returning X-Men and X2 director Bryan Singer responded with a "I don't know."
Well Singer was asked again if Halle would be returning and here is what he said: "It depends on how it works out. I loved working with Halle, so all I can say is we'll see what happens."
I actually hope Halle does return because let's be honest ever since she won the Oscar for Monster's Ball her movie career has been on the decline. I can't think of one good role she has done since her Oscar win and I think she could use some shine in a hit franchise. Days of Future Past is set to go into production next month.
Okay let's be honest. Ever since Pitbull switched from that hardcore Miami hip hop he gave us in the beginning of his career with M.I.A.M.I. (Money Is Still A Major Issue) like Dammit Man and Culo, and switched up to giving shitty Spanglish raps over dated Euro dance beats, no one in the hip hop world has taken him seriously.
Well now it seems he's been revisiting his old hip hop ways and has opted to go after Lil Wayne in the form of a diss track.
Mr. 305 is the latest rapper to put his stank on the remix to Harlem Shake called “Welcome to Dade County,” where he defended his hometown and came for disrespectful ass Weezy for dissing the Miami Heat.
“Don’t shit where you eat,” Pitbull barks at the New Orleans native. “When we show love to those that get their city destroyed by a hurricane and then they come down here…”
Where has Pit been? Weezy has made a career out of shitting where he eats. Why do you think Trashi Garbaj is always got something nasty to say? She learned it from her mentor.
Anyways, Weezy heard Pit’s charged words and instead of dealing with it face-to-face he pulled himself out of his drugged stupor long enough to respond in a tweet. “Dam pit bull bro I thought u was kool,” he wrote.
Pitbull explained to him why he was upset. “@LilTunechi I am cool papo but imagine me shitting on anything new orleans which I was just there for super bowl the big easy I loved it,” he tweeted. “@LilTunechi the world shows me love and vice versa but miami is all I got no disrespect just the truth.”
Well you know them Young money queens also hate the truth so you know they can't take it when you bring it to their asses. Anyways, Weezy and Pitbull collaborated on a Pit track called “Dammit Man” off his 2005 album Money Is Still a Major Issue.
While I was a bit bummed when I heard that John Favreau would not be returning to direct the latest Iron Man movie (he will still act in the film), I'm just so glad that writer/director Shane Black is part of this project, since he's brought me some of my favorite action films of the 80's, 90's and today. In other Iron Man 3 news, expect to see a brand new trailer on March 5.
Solange, the artsier fashion-forward Knowles sister performed a new track Don't Let Me Down on The Late Show With David Letterman last night, which is off her excellent new EP True.
It was great to see Solange make a fan out of Letterman. Check out the performance below...

I was a little bummed when USA canceled Common Law, but I have some brand new news on Michael Ealy. A few weeks ago Entertainment Weekly ran an article on the direction network television would be going in come fall pilot season, and one of the biggest trends that was talked about was robots on TV. Fox has picked up a new futuristic series created by Fringe's J.H. Wyman and J.J. Abrams.
According to The Hollywood Reporter the drama is described as an action-packed buddy cop show set in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved humanlike androids.
Ealy will play Dorian, the android partner of LAPD officer John Kennex who understands humanity more than his human counterpart.
Sounds a bit Isaac Asimov-esque, and while I will miss Fringe, I am a huge fan of sci fi and cannot wait to see how they pull a show like this off, especially with sci fi being a pretty expensive medium but not a genre that brings in the big ratings. Fringe was a great show but was never a big ratings hit. It had a cult following and if this show is good I hope it pulls the same audience.
Just when you thought Armageddon was upon us when we found out a few months back that Kim Kuntrashian had fertile eggs up in her that could actually produce a growing child, now comes word that another vile existing celebrity named Perez Hilton is a daddy.
Since Perez has an issue with spewing facts on his own website when it comes to talking about celebrities and the latest gossip, the 34-year-old blogger & entrepreneur let the cat out of the bag via his website:
"I am ready to announce that earlier this month I was blessed with the birth of my first child, a beautiful and healthy baby boy -- with lots of hair on his tiny head!"
Let's just hope like Blue Ivy the newborn doesn't have any of his father's looks.
The minute word spread that Zoe Saldana would be playing Nina Simone in the upcoming biopic, most were pretty upset that a fair-skinned latina actress would need prosthetics and dark pancake make up to play a darker-skinned singer.
So now that the film is in the can, Zoe, who attended this past Sunday's Oscars ceremony spoke out on the hateration she's been receiving at a pre-Oscar celebration event.
