Good Gossip: Catching up on celeb news

good gossip celebrities

Yes, we do love a little celebrity gossip but we also know it’s not cool to do something we teach our kids NOT to do. It’s never okay to indulge in stuff meant to humiliate or hurt another person. That’s why we came up with the concept of “Good Gossip,” which is celeb news minus any mean stuff. Have as much as you want because this “dish” is all guilt-free.

jessica simpson3 You know how something unexpected happens at almost every wedding? Jessica Simpson‘s recent wedding ceremony had its own little surprise. Jessica and her now husband Eric Johnson said they were both worried about their two kids (ages 2 and 1) toddling down the aisle successfully as part of the wedding party. Both kids did a great job, and the groom scooped them up when they made it to the altar. But when he bent down to scoop, he split his pants! Jessica said, “After the ceremony, when everybody left, Eric was in his boxers and tux jacket. There’s always got to be something that happens!” The groom got new pants for the reception, which featured plenty of dancing and stretched into the early morning hours. You can read all the wedding details in the latest edition of People magazine.

savannah guthrie2Expecting her first baby soon, Savannah Guthrie, co-anchor of The Today Show, enjoyed a baby shower thrown by some of her friends and co-workers, including Gayle King, Hoda Kotb, Deborah Roberts and Kathie Lee Gifford. The friends showered her with kids’ books and treated her to lunch at the Glass Houses restaurant in New York City. Savannah said the baby-size bites prepared by the chef “were so cute you didn’t know if you should eat them or hug them.” Savannah’s baby is due next month.

zac efron2Looks like Zac Efron might be in a new relationship with actress Michelle Rodriguez. The two were spotted splashing around together on the coast of Sardinia, Italy.

heidi klum2Model and businesswoman Heidi Klum also likes to cook and she’s using her kitchen skills to help out a charity called “God’s Love We Deliver.” She said she has been chopping and cooking for them for the past 10 years. The organization has a huge kitchen where they prepare individual meals for people who are too sick to cook in the New York City area. “Whenever I’m in New York, I go into their giant kitchen and take orders: Chop these 2,000 peppers, peel these 1,000 carrots. I’m part of a prep station in a group that delivers more than 1.2 million nutritious meals a year. …For so many mothers, too weak to get out of bed and struggling with sickness — I’m glad this is one less thing they have to worry about.”

katie couric and john molnerKatie Couric is married! She and John Molner (a banker) walked each other down the aisle as a string quartet played the song “Till There Was You.” They wrote their own wedding vows, and one of her promises was to “not check email” during the wedding. :-) Katie’s first husband, Jay Monahan, died of colon cancer in 1998, and Katie went on to lead a major push toward awareness of colon cancer and the need for early testing. Katie’s new husband John has two children (ages 16 and 19) and Katie’s daughters are now 18 and 22. The girls blasted their mom’s favorite Motown songs on an iPhone and got wedding guests dancing at the reception.

taye-diggs2Raise your hand if you can relate to what actor Taye Diggs said about eating in a recent People magazine interview . When asked about his last indulgence, he said it was “a pint of Ben & Jerry’s cookie-dough ice cream. Of course I ate the whole thing. I tell myself not to, but it never happens. When I was 23, I could eat one every night, but those days are over.” (We hear ya, Taye.)

eric-daneActor Eric Dane is having regular date nights with his 4-year-old daughter Billie. “We’ll go on dates, and she’ll put on a princess dress and I’ll put on a suit because I have to play the part. I can’t say no to my girls,” said the actor (who is also a dad to 2-year-old daughter Georgia.) “They melt my heart. I’m very grateful for my family.” Eric is married to actress Rebecca Gayheart and is currently starring in a summer series on TNT called The Last Ship. He’s most famous for his role of Mark Sloan aka “McSteamy” on Grey’s Anatomy.

melissa mccarthyWe LOVE, LOVE, LOVE what Melissa McCarthy said during an interview for the cover story of People magazine. ALL of us should follow her lead on this: “I try not to say negative things in front of my girls, like, ‘God, I look terrible,’ or ‘I should go put some makeup on.’ I very consciously avoid stuff like that so that my girls won’t tear themselves down either.” Read all of Melissa’s insightful and VERY funny interview in the latest edition of People.

mark-wahlbergWe got a laugh from something actor Mark Wahlberg (father of two boys and two girls) said recently about what he’s hoping for as his daughters grow into teenagers: “The boys will be difficult in some ways that the girls won’t, but I’m dreading the teenage years with my daughters; it’s not going to be easy for them to go on a date. But I’m hoping one nice, nerdy boy will come into each of their lives at the right time when they’re twenty-something, and they’ll be with that person forever.”

billy bob thorntonPicture this: Billy Bob Thornton as a ladybug. He said that his 9-year-old daughter, Bella, wants to be an entomologist so she’s really into insects like butterflies and caterpillars. Last Halloween, she dressed up as a monarch butterfly and her dad went as a ladybug. “That doesn’t really look like me, but I did it. I strapped on the wings and everything.” Way to go, Dad.

jimmy fallon 2014You’ve got to see the SUPER cute pictures of Jimmy Fallon‘s baby girl, Winnie, featured in the latest issue of People magazine. She is a doll and you can tell her famous father, now referred to as the king of late-night, is totally in love with her. Jimmy and his wife, Nancy, struggled with infertility and miscarriages for five years before giving birth to their daughter via surrogate. Jimmy said he went through an ultra overprotective phase at first, sleeping in the baby’s room to make sure she was breathing. (Been there and done that!) Now he’s okay with using the monitor and he is realizing that babies are more durable than he thought. And a LOT of fun. He said, “I knew it was going to be fun. But I didn’t think being a dad was going to be this fun.”

chris powell2Chris Powell, celebrity trainer and star of Extreme Makeover Weight Loss, is also a father to four. When he married his wife, she was already a mom to two kids who were then 2 and 3 years old. He said they “showed him the ropes.” And now two more kids have joined the blended family of two boys and two girls, ages 9, 7, 3 and 7 months. Believe it or not, Chris said that he and his wife don’t restrict anything. “We focus on healthy foods first, but there are cookies in the house. There’s a candy jar.” He said that, more than anything, they try to give their kids a healthy lead to follow. “More than anything, kids want to do what you do.”

scott wolfScott Wolf (formerly of Party of Five and Everwood) just got a healthy dose of pink in his life. The father of two boys just welcomed a new baby into the family — a baby girl named Lucy. “The fact it was a girl made our third child feel like our first all over again. This has been a blue house with trucks, planes and dirt, and suddenly there’s pink!” Scott is now starring in Perception and The Night Shift.

tracy morganAnother famous father — comedian Tracy Morgan — is thankfully on the mend following a car accident that killed one of Tracy’s friends and mentors. Among other injuries, Tracy suffered a broken leg, nose and ribs and has undergone surgery. In an interview a few days before the accident, Tracy said, “When I look at all four of my kids, I say to myself, ‘God gave us dreams, but he gave us babies to make all those dreams worthwhile.’”

lisa niemiThis is happy news about Lisa Niemi, actress and dancer, who lost her husband Patrick Swayze to pancreatic cancer in 2009. Lisa was recently remarried to Albert DPrisco, a jeweler. They held the ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida, with 50 guests attending. Lisa said that her new husband “…knew I still loved Patrick but told me, ‘I’m here to love you now.’” She says that when she looks into their future together, all she sees is happiness. Congrats to the new couple.

julie andrewsThere’s a picture in the most recent issue of People magazine we never expected to see. Julie Andrews (of The Sound of Music fame) is photographed with Pharrell Williams, who rocketed to fame with his song “Happy.” The two appeared on a show together in London, and Pharrell obviously knew he was in the company of a musical legend because he said “It’s a pleasure to be sitting here with someone with such incredible, rich, regal music history.”

drew barrymore4We love how Drew Barrymore described her body during her second pregnancy with her new baby daughter, Frankie. “And your body just goes right back to being pregnant; it’s like memory foam! I looked heavy and pregnant and swollen, like, the minute I found out.” We know exactly what you mean, Drew! She also said that, while she was pregnant both times, she craved white flour, Chinese food and pizza and couldn’t stand fish or vegetables. But as soon as she gave birth both times, she went back to really liking fish and vegetables.

shakira2We also love what new mom Shakira says about her post-pregnancy body.  (She said she lost baby weight by doing Zumba five days a week after her son was born.) “I don’t obsess over my flaws because I see my body as a whole. Besides, I think men appreciate confidence more than perfection.” Amen, sister!

stork2There’s nothing scandalous about Kerry Washington‘s most recent delivery. The actress and star of the hit show Scandal gave birth to a daughter, Isabelle, on April 21st. Kerry is married to Nnamdi Asomugha, an NFL player, and the couple have been super successful at keeping their major life milestones under wraps and as quiet and private as possible. In fact, only those closest to the couple knew about the birth for two weeks before the rest of the world found out. Congrats to the new parents.

savannah guthrieHost of the Today Show and mom-to-be, Savannah Guthrie says her mom is her moral compass. She said that one time, as a teenager, she sneaked out of the house at night to go to a party. When she got back home at 2 a.m., her mom was sitting on her bed saying, “Welcome home!” Guthrie said she and her mom always go to see a Broadway show when her mom comes to town. “If I could copy the kind of mom she was, I’d be in good shape,” Guthrie said.

ariana huffingtonSuper busy moms can take a lesson from the wildly successful Arianna Huffington, a single mother who also built the Huffington Post website and sold it for more than $300 million in 2011. She still works as editor-in-chief of the website. Arianna collapsed in 2007 and, after lots of medical tests, it was determined that the collapse came from sheer exhaustion. “I did not realize how burned out I was,” she said. “I must have been way below zero percent battery and did not even know it.” She has written a new book about her experience and what she learned from the past seven years of reading about exhaustion, and it’s titled “Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom and Wonder.”

maleficentIf you go see the movie Maleficent (which hits theaters May 30th), you might wonder who the cute little blonde girl is in scenes with Angelina Jolie, who plays the title character. The sweet girl is actually Angelina and Brad’s real-life daughter, Vivienne. Angelina says, although she does not want her kids to be actors, she allowed Vivienne to be in the movie, in part, because it was so difficult to find another child actor who wasn’t terrified of her once she had on the Maleficent costume, complete with cape, creepy contacts and tall horns. Angelina said Viv is very feminine and likes to pick flowers and take care of animals. She plays Princess Aurora as a child. Angelina said two of her other kids, Pax and Zahara, are also in the film and that having them on the set was her “secret weapon.” “It made me so much more playful.”
