Good Gossip: Kerry Washington, Ryan Gosling, celeb moms 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.

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.

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.”

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.

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

Good Gossip: Drake, Rihanna, Patrick Dempsey and Melissa McCarthy

According to a report in People magazine, the couple went out and got matching shark tattoos. One source was quoted as saying that Drake treats her “like a princess.”

storkNick Lachey and wife Vanessa are growing their family with Baby No. 3 on the way. The new baby will join big brother 4-year-old Camden and big sister Brooklyn, who is now 20 months old.

chris-carmack-nashvilleAny fellow Nashville fans in the house? Nashville star Chris Carmack (he plays Will Lexington) and his fiance Erin Slaver, who is a musician, just had a baby girl in late August. Congrats to the new family!

patrick-dempsey-2016He’ll always be McDreamy in our book. Patrick Dempsey, who somehow keeps getting better looking, shares personal details in the cover story of the most recent People magazine. The good news is that he and his wife of 17 years, makeup artist Jillian Dempsey, have been able to reconcile and save their marriage. They are parents to three kids, a 14-year-old daughter and twin boys who are now 9. Patrick said that, although he will always be grateful for Grey’s Anatomy and the incredible opportunities it brought him, the grueling schedule cost him important time at home. “All the boys’ lives, and a big part of Talula’s life, was me being gone working on that show. There was very little time to relax and enjoy life.” He went on to say that being separated from his wife helped him realize his priorities and what he really wanted. “…Our marriage was not something I was prepared to let go of.” With the help of couples therapy and his decision to pull back on his race car driving commitments, the family was able to reunite. “…We want to be role models for our children — if you have differences, you can work them out.”

melissa-mccarthy-2016Every time we see a quote by Melissa McCarthy, we love her a little more. People magazine recently asked her about her style philosophy and she said “It’s not so much about a dress as feeling good. You want to feel like yourself because then your best qualities shine through.” (Amen!) As you may know, Melissa now has her own fashion line and said she burst out crying the first time she spotted someone wearing one of her creations. She talked to the woman wearing the shirt. “She said she got compliments and she felt pretty. That’s the thing — fashion can really lift you up and make you feel good.”

kirstie alley instagramKirstie Alley is a grandmother! The 65-year-old actress has a new grandbaby named Waylon Tripp Parker and Kirstie says that, although work requires her to travel quite a bit, she rushes back to be with her grandson. “Being a grandma is in the top three best things that has ever happened to me. Friends used to show pictures of their grandkids, and I’d be like, ‘Yeah yeah, they’re cute’ or whatever. Now I’m totally that grandmother.”
Kirstie is also feeling healthy and fit again, saying that keeping the weight off for a few years has helped her body remember what it was supposed to look like. She said she stays active but “hates the gym…. I’m not a lunging, squatting human. I’ll do things that sound fun, like a dance class or yoga, or I’ll walk or run.”

carrie underwood instagramCarrie Underwood is on tour, and she brought along her baby boy, Isaiah, who is now a year and a half old. Some of her “must have” things to have with her on tour are her dogs because they are “a little piece of home.” She said she also has a cooking surface on the tour bus because “…I like to cook as much as possible. Room service gets old. And we travel with a washer-dryer. Doing my own laundry makes me feel like a human. I also have a trailer outfitted with a gym — it’s my splurge!”

scott mcgillivreyScott McGillivray, who hosts the show Income Property on HGTV, built his family’s dream home in Toronto. He and his wife Sabrina have two daughters, age 4 and 2. He said that hosting a show about renovations gave him “10 years of ideas.” The new house will be one of the main aspects of the family’s new show called “Moving the McGillivrays.” One of the favorite spaces in the new home is a craft room designed for his daughters which features an area for painting, framing and gluing.

chris noth twitterChris Noth (a.k.a. Mr. Big from Sex and the City) said that his 8-year-old son, Orion, makes him laugh every day. “He’s got a little of my goofball in him. He still loves poop jokes. Boys never get over that. He’ll text me poop emojis and then sign, “Daddy, It’s Orion,” and I’m like, “I know.”
