Good Gossip: Celebrity friendships and more

Good Gossip slider 700Yes, 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 and share it with your celeb-loving friends because this “dish” is all guilt-free.

jessica alba2Jessica Alba told People magazine that what she misses most from her life before motherhood is sleeping in and not worrying. “I’m always  worried about them. Even when they’re at school or they’re at home sleeping and we’re all in the house together, I’m still always worried about them!” (We can relate, sister.)

beyonce twinsIsn’t it great when successful women admire each other instead of taking petty swipes at each other? Two of the biggest names in music — Adele and Beyonce — are huge fans of each other’s music. Beyonce (who recently announced that she’s expecting twins!) said that “When Adele sings, you can hear that it’s coming from an unfiltered honesty and purity.” And Adele gave Beyonce a huge compliment by saying she is her “Michael Jackson,” and she paid special tribute to her during her speech at last weekend’s Grammy awards. Yay for superstar friendships.

zooey deschanelZooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik are expecting another baby this year. The new addition will join big sister Elsie Otter, who is 19 months old. Congrats to the growing family.

Good Gossip: New love, new baby and eating out of the pan

Good Gossip slider 700Yes, 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 and share it with your celeb-loving friends because this “dish” is all guilt-free.

Katherine Heigl instagramActress Katherine Heigl and her husband, musician Josh Kelley, just welcomed a new baby into the family. Joshua Bishop Kelley, Jr. was born on December 20, 2016, weighing in at 7 pounds, 15 ounces. He joins two big sisters, Naleigh (who is 8) and Adalaide (who is 4). The couple’s first two children are adopted, and Katherine said she has been reading a book to them called Why Was I Adopted? – the same book her own mother once read to her older sister, Meg, who is also adopted. She said “My mother used to say this, too: It doesn’t matter how they come into your life; the moment they put that child into your arms — whether you just [gave birth] or whether they just arrived from Korea — they’re yours.” Katherine said that breastfeeding was a little complicated in the beginning, “but when it starts to work, it’s sweet, nurturing and kind of beautiful.” Congrats to the growing family. (For some seriously cute baby pics, check out the latest issue of People magazine.)

ben higgins instagramAttention Bachelor fans: Ben Higgins, who got engaged to Lauren Bushnell on Season 20 of the show, said one of his favorite relationship books is one called The Zimzum of Love: A New Way of Understanding Marriage, by Rob and Kristen Bell. He said it’s a great way to spark conversations “about the things we could work on, while bringing to light the beautiful aspects of our relationship.” For a Valentine’s Day gift, he suggested a bottle of massage oil from Bath & Body Works that is called “Stress Relief” and is scented with eucalyptus and spearmint. He said, “After any physical event or tiring week, giving her a massage takes all the stresses away.”

Leslie mann2We can tell that actress Leslie Mann is our kind of people. In a recent interview with People magazine, she said that she dances around the house with her kids all the time. “I’m like the Elaine from Seinfeld dancer. I think I’m a good dancer, and I am not a good dancer. But I get really into it and have a great time.” When asked about her last moment of bliss, she said “I laid in bed and ate Top Ramen. I eat it out of the pan I cook it in because I don’t want to dirty a bowl and clean the dishes. And I watched Ghost Hunters. Doesn’t that sound perfect?” (Yep. It kinda does.)

Jennifer lopez 2017Actress and singer Jennifer Lopez recently won a People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Actress in a TV Crime Drama” for her work in the show Shades of Blue. When asked how she balances her career while raising her twins, she kept it real and honest: “I have a lot of help… I don’t claim to be Superwoman and do it all by myself.”

isla fisher2Kids have a way of keeping us humble, don’t they? And it happens to even the most glamorous, movie star moms, too. Actress Isla Fisher wore a gorgeous yellow gown to the AACTA Awards, and her daughter’s reaction was “Mommy, you look like a banana tonight.” Isla’s response? “I mean, I’ll take anything.” In her defense, Isla wore a great color that has been very popular on the red carpet lately. Other celebs who have recently walked the red carpet wearing a yellow gown include Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, Viola Davis, Maisie Williams, Emily Ratajkowski and Kerry Washington.

kerry washington3Speaking of Kerry Washington, the star of Scandal and mother of a 2-year-old daughter and a 3-month-old son, recently said the best acting of her life is when she tries to look like a well-rested woman. Amen, Mama. We hear you.

His sincere “thank you” to his wife, Eva Mendes, made moms all over the globe stand up and cheer. In case you missed it, here it is: “While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer.” We’ll add that comment to the million other reasons to love Ryan Gosling.

Actor Jerry O’Connell said he and his wife Rebecca Romijn have three dogs and two cats, who all have a spot on the bed if they want one. Jerry told People magazine that he is “pretty low on the food chain — I get the least amount of room of all of them!” He is appearing in the American Kennel Club’s annual dog show. Jerry and Rebecca are also parents to twin daughters who are 8 years old.

bryce-dallas-howard-instagram-200Bryce Dallas Howard, actress and daughter of director Ron Howard, said that she is excited about filming the new Jurassic World sequel with Chris Pratt. She recently told People magazine that “I really couldn’t have wished for a better man in my life as a father, I couldn’t have wished fora  better man in my life as a husband, and I couldn’t have wished for a better partner to make a movie with than Chris Pratt. I hope I’m running from dinosaurs until the day I die, and I hope that guy is two paces behind me screaming the whole time.”

lachey-baby-2016200Singer Nick Lachey and his wife, Vanessa, had a very merry Christmas when they welcomed their third baby into the family on Christmas Eve. Their new baby boy, named Phoenix Robert, was born on December 24th and joins a big brother named Camden and a big sister named Brooklyn. The proud dad posted this sweet picture on Instagram. Congrats to the growing family.

nashville-cmt-200Spoiler alert: If you were SO bummed when the show Nashville wasn’t renewed on ABC, you’ll be thrilled to know that it’ll be back on the air this week on CMT channel. Sounds like Juliette survives that plane crash, and Rayna and Deacon are making a new album together. Set your DVRs for January 5th at 9 p.m.

gwyneth-paltrow-44-200Gwyneth Paltrow said something so great about being a 40-something. “I really believe that when a woman turns 40, she gets a software upgrade. I have never been happier. Part of that is just accepting where you are in time and space. I feel good about being a grown woman.” Read the rest of the interview with Gwyneth in the most recent issue of People magazine.

Good Gossip: Four-legged and famous

Good Gossip slider 700This edition of Good Gossip (which is celebrity gossip that’s all good, minus the mean) is going to the dogs… and cat, and raccoon, and pigs! These pets have attained celebrity status in the animal world by becoming favorites on social media, each one with tens of thousands of followers. If you’re a “pet person” like we are, keep up with these four-legged celebs on Instagram. Click on each picture below to follow these four-legged celebs on Instagram.

Doug the Pug lives in Nashville likes to spoof pop culture. If you follow him on Instagram, you’ll see pictures of this 4-year-old Pug dressed up like Barb from Stranger Things, a Harry Potter fan, and an Olympic swimmer. Doug is so cool.doug-the-pug2How cute is Pumpkin the Raccoon? He is 2 years old and was rescued in the Bahamas. Pumpkin has her own book called Pumpkin: The Raccoon Who Thought She Was a Dog, and it’ll be published this month!pumpkin-the-raccoonWe’re betting you can guess how this cat named “Keys the Goal Kitty” got her nickname. She lifted her paws in the air one day and the rest is Internet history. We’re guessing she’d be a lot of fun to watch a football game with.keys-the-goal-kittyWe have serious hair envy when we see pictures of Agador the Pooch of N.Y.C. This 2-year-old pup (who also has a little brother named Fred) is often spotted in New York with his owner, Allan Monteron, scouting out the perfect place for a new photo.agador-the-poochMeet one of the most famous guinea pigs in the world! Fuzzberta has more than 100,000 followers and loves to wear costumes made by her owner, Monica Wu of California. She doesn’t mind all the photo opps as long as someone feeds her carrot chips.fuzzbertaLast but definitely not least, we’ve developed a crush on two pigs named Prissy and Pop. They swim in the pool, have playdates with dogs, eat watermelon for snacks and they’re known for their pig fashion. The only problem? They are die-hard Alabama Crimson Tide fans. We’ll try not to hold it against them, especially since we think they’d fit in so well here in Arkansas where we are quite fond of our Hogs. :-) prissy-and-pop-pigsSource: People magazine, October 10, 2016 edition
