According to Life & Style, Emily Maynard will be the next star of The Bachelorette — and ABC is coming to her.
“It’s official, Emily is the new Bachelorette,” an insider close to Emily tells Life & Style. “ABC is even going to move filming to Charlotte [North Carolina, Emily’s hometown]. It won’t be in LA at all.”
Life & Style first reported that ABC approached the blond beauty to star in the next season of the series.
But she had fans convinced she wasn’t interested. Just last summer she tweeted: “I don’t want to be the Bachelorette.”
Since splitting with The Bachelor’s Brad Womack in May after becoming engaged to him in March, the North Carolina mom has been linked to Carolina Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey and Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren, whom Emily has denied dating.
I like the idea of having Emily as the Bachelorette – but I’m having a hard time buying it. If she is going to do it, she’s not going to be the greatest. She’s so shy and quiet! How is she going to handle the pressure of being in the middle of all those men!?
Maybe it’s ironic that Katy Perry re-released “The One That Got Away” shortly after announcing she’s divorcing her husband, Russell Brand.
Perry just released an acoustic version of her hit single, which is so much more emotional considering what’s going on in her personal life.
On the other hand, Brand appears to be doing just fine! While speaking to an audience over the weekend, he admitted he’s going really well. Good for him.
“Are you asking because of recent events?,” he asked a questioner inquiring about his emotional health. “You are making the mistake of seeing time as linear. The brilliant American author Kurt Vonnegut, he’ll tell you that if you imagine reality as experienced simultaneously, events become redundant.”
Once a break-up hits the cover of People Magazine, I’m much more inclined to believe it. After weeks of rumors, it looks like there may be some truth to the fact that Johnny Depp and his longtime partner Vanessa Paradis are breaking up. The couple have been together for 14 years, and have two children together.
Once upon a time, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis lived a quiet family life far from the spotlight in the sleepy French hamlet of Plan-de-la-Tour.
But that time is no more, and now the couple largely reside in L.A. – when they are in the same city at all.
Depp, 48, and Paradis, 39, who are parents to Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, 9, have not appeared side-by-side on a red carpet for more than a year. Multiple sources tell PEOPLE in this week’s cover story that the relationship is all but officially finished.
In fact, some in their circle say the couple of nearly 14 years have already split. Says one insider: “It’s so sad.”
I hope this isn’t true. I’ve always loved them as a couple. I like how laid back and private they are. That seems like the key to a successful Hollywood marriage. Maybe this is all just gossip and there’s no truth to it.
Speaking of gossip, there are spies that told the Enquirer that Johnny Depp and Eva Green got too cozy during the filming of Dark Shadows. Also – apparently Angelina Jolie has “reached out” to help her ol’ bud Johnny. According to Now Magazine, “They stayed in touch after The Tourist. When she heard what was going on she reached out to him to see how he was coping and urged him to work it out.”
February 8 will mark the three-year anniversary of Chris Brown’s infamous attack on then-girlfriend, Rihnanna. Shortly after the incident, the couple were forced to separate by court order. Was that the only thing keeping the two apart? According to US Weekly, multiple sources confirm that Rihanna, 23, and Chris, 22, have been secretly hooking up for almost a year.
The edgy, platinum-selling “We Found Love” singer and Brown “meet up very casually,” a Brown confidante says. “She comes to see him anytime she’s in L.A.”
Explains a music industry source: “They can’t get enough of each other. I don’t see it ending well.”
“Rihanna loves to live dangerously, and talking to and hooking up with Chris is all part of that,” adds a Rihanna insider.
The clandestine relationship isn’t just complicated because of the couple’s violent past; the “Forever” crooner also has a girlfriend, aspiring model Karrueche Tran.
“He and Rihanna are just friends,” Brown’s rep tells Us. “He’s not cheating.” Rihanna’s rep had no comment.
For much more on this shocking reunion — how the secrecy makes “the hookups even hotter” and whether they’ll ever go public — pick up the new Us Weekly, on stands Friday.
I’m not sure it’s possible to just be friends for the two of them. I certainly wouldn’t think so, anyway. A “friend” is much more likely to forgive what Chris Brown did to her. If she’s running back to him, it’s probably because she’s still in love with him. Which is so sad to me. I really believe that if they hit you once, they’ll hit you again. And again, and again.
Rihanna’s smoking pot has got everyone in a tizzy!
The “We Found Love” singer was spotted enjoying an unidentified rolled substance over the weekend while relaxing in Hawaii. Outfitted in a casual hot pink tank and black leggings, the bare-faced stunner held a mysterious blunt-like object (presumed to be a marijuana-filled cigar) in one hand with a cell phone in another, from which she tweeted, “Kush rolled, glass full…I prefer the better things!” a playful homage to her former flame (forgive the pun) Drake’s “Up All Night.”
From her sultry Talk That Talk album artwork to her controversial “We Found Love” music video, Rihanna has not been shy about her penchant for smoking. As news spread of the presumed pot smoking, ardent fans aka the Rihanna Navy took to Twitter with largely supportive sentiment in tweets like: ” I wanna smoke a blunt wit @rihanna”, “lol she is so high ! love that girl” and “Island gal for real!!!!”
Relaxation is in order for the ubiquitous singer. Aside from being named Esquire magazine’s Sexiest Woman Alive for 2011, earlier this month RiRi was dubbed the best-selling digital artist of all time by Nielsen SoundScan. Her sixth album Talk That Talk has been certified Gold with over 500,000 copies sold and she has sold an astounding 47.5 million digital downloads to date.
