Donald Trump

HERE’S MORE OF WHAT WE KNOW

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez dominated the headlines this week as rumors swirl that their marriage is dunzo.  Here’s what we know.  The couple are going through a rough patch,mostly due to their different spending habits.  SHE likes like live large, but he’s more frugal and finds her excessive spending a turn-off.  In J. Lo’s defense, she is worth more than Ben, so she understandably finds it insulting that he would tell her how to spend HER money. My source says the one thing the both of them have in common is they’re quick to react, BUT do love one another, so while anything is possible, it’s most likely their marriage will stay intact, considering they are in counseling.

Kansas City Chiefs’ Harrison Butker didn’t win any female or gay fans this week thanks to a commencement address where he basically voiced his controversial opinions against the LGTBQ community and women’s rights.  Making it worse he quoted Taylor Swift in the address, referring to her as his teammate Travis Kelce’s girlfriend.  Here’s what we know.  Taylor was PISSED that he dared say her name in such a hate filled speech and she told Travis under no circumstances will she ever be photographed anywhere near him.  She also made it be known to the powers that be on the team that she doesn’t feel comfortable publicly supporting the team if it has a misogynistic homophobe in its ranks.  My NFL source predicts Harrison will be traded, but the question is, who will want him?

Justin and Hailey Bieber made headlines when they announced they’re expecting their first child together. They kept the news a secret from family and closest friends, but now we’re hearing that Justin has been taking parenting classes with a therapist who visits his home three times a week to help him cope with the demands of being a first time dad. My source says he’s determined to do everything RIGHT and get his unpredictable mood swings under control before the baby arrives.

The Sex and the City spinoff, And Just Like That recently started filming its third season in New York City and we can tell you that Kim Cattrall will definitely appear again in another cameo and this time she will share the screen with a cast member -but it won’t be Sarah Jessica Parker.  We are hearing that Kim’s character Samantha Jones is living in Europe and will be visited by one of the cast, and the scene will take place there.  Producers haven’t decided if it’s going to be Cynthia Nixon or Kristen Davis, but it’s going to happen.

And as usual, what’s a week without a piece of Donald Trump gossip! Donald’s youngest son, Barron made headlines when he was announced to be a delegate at the upcoming Republican national convention, only to have his mom Melania publicly decline the invitation the next day, citing a “scheduling conflict.” This makes no sense, since Barron would be expected to be at the convention when his father is nominated to be president, anyway.  We heard that Donald actually gave the okay to announce Barron as a delegate, but Melania immediately nixed it. My well-placed source says that it was a screaming match unlike any other, as Melania threatened to boycott the convention herself if Donald forced the issue of having Barron as a delegate. Needless to say she won.

HERE’S WHAT WE KNOW

Dear Readers,
We’re doing our best not to deprive you of the best Hollywood gossip, but just like some of the celebrities you read about here, our website is still acting up!  For the time being we are forced to post items without photos, but rest assured we’re working diligently to resolve this and those loading issues. We appreciate your patience and understanding.  Please stick with us.!

 

Surprise! surprise! another week and another Donald Trump update. The disgraced former president in a criminal trial in New York City made headlines again for violating a gag order with his unhinged outburst outside of the courthouse and on social media. I am hearing that his attorneys are encouraging him to avoid his beloved Diet Coke during the trial because the extra caffeine tends to agitate him. He’s being encouraged to drink non-caffeinated herbal tea instead – which might explain why he apparently keeps falling asleep during the proceedings.

Prince Harry made headlines this week, not for something he did but for something he didn’t do – visit England and NOT see his father, King Charles, or his brother Prince William.  We’re hearing that although Harry didn’t get a chance to see his dad and brother, he sent them both food baskets from Harvey Nichols, an upscale store in London. The baskets contained some of the royal family‘s favorite jams and jellies which are exclusive to the store. My source says Harry was devastated that his family didn’t see him, so he sent the baskets as an olive branch.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard made headlines as during her trip to LA for a cute TikTok video, where she was shocked at the prices at Erewhon, and upscale grocery store chain. Gypsy was in town to promote her show with Lifetime, but we’re hearing that she fell in love with Hollywood, and she’s trying to move here if she can get her probation figured out. My source says she’s hoping to continue working in the entertainment industry, perhaps hosting a talk show.

Real Housewife of New Jersey Teresa Giudice ran into Taylor Swift at Coachella a few weeks back, and their selfie is still making headlines. What ISN’T making headlines though is what we are hearing. After the infamous selfie, Teresa reached out to Taylor with a DM on Instagram, and all but begged her to make even the briefest appearance on the popular Housewives reality show. While it’s a long-shot, we are hearing Taylor, while not a loyal fan, might consider it just for the shock value!

Finally, the Met Gala was one of the biggest stories of last week, and the general consensus was that this year was a bore-fest.  A shortage of truly creative outfits and  we were appalled by the guests BRAGGING about how MUCH money and HOURS of work were spent (wasted?) on frivolous dresses to be worn for that ONE event. Here’s one interesting tidbit we heard and wanted to share: Kim Kardashian had a bad hair day and she had no one to blame but herself. Despite her hairdresser telling her NOT to, Kim INSISTED on going platinum blonde for the Gala but her hair turned out over- processed and riddled with flyaways and split ends. Kim was unhappy with her less than perfect appearance, but she realized it was HER fault and told her friends next time she’ll listen to her hairstylist Chris Appleton.

HERE’S WHAT WE KNOW

The Met Gala is Monday, May 6 and we just heard this EXCLUSIVE tidbit. We previously reported Kim Kardashian was wearing Balenciaga to the event which makes sense since she IS the brand’s ambassador. Well Kim pulled a fast one and decided she wanted to go in a different direction so she scrapped her original outfit and is now wearing something else and not Balenciaga. Remember where you read this, as it should send waves through the fashion world since since Kim and Balenciaga are in business together and everyone expects her to wear the label on fashion’s biggest night.

President Joe Biden made news this week when he revealed he would be willing to debate Donald Trump in their race for the White House. Here’s what we just heard. This presidential debate might be unlike any other in the our nation’s history as the plan is for Biden and Trump to each choose one moderator to ask the questions with NOTHING off-limits. While countless details still need to be worked out, including the date and location, expect a debate unlike any other. My source says Trump has yet to agree to this arrangement since he’s terrified of answering questions from the seemingly liberal moderator the Biden campaign will likely select.

Justin Bieber made headlines after posting selfies of him crying and then he was spotted hanging out in Kauai, Hawaii. Here’s what we know. Justin is blaming a lot of his emotional issues on the pressures and temptations of living in Los Angeles, so he and his wife Hailey Bieber flew to Hawaii to look at homes. They’re planning to unload their sprawling Beverly Park estate, put down roots in Hawaii, and then buy a pied a terre in Los Angeles when they need to be in town for work. They love the island of Kauai, but also are looking at Maui and the Big Island.

Britney Spears made headlines as well- for numerous reasons including fears about her financial situation, settling her lawsuit with her father, and finalizing her divorce from ex-husband Sam Asghari. We know this… Britney’s mom Lynne is more involved behind the scenes than she’s letting on, and while she’s not micromanaging Britney or her finances, she is monitoring the situation and has safety nets in place just in case Britney spirals out of control. My source says that this time around if the consensus is that Britney needs a conservatorship it will be Lynne who is in charge.

And finally this. Travis Kelce inked a two-year deal with his team the Kansas City Chiefs making him the HIGHEST paid tight end in the NFL. While his $34.25 million contract is already public knowledge, here’s something we know that hasn’t been publicized. The deal also includes a secret bonus of $100,000 per regular season game, $250,000 for playoff games and a whopping $500,000 for the Super Bowl if his girlfriend (and likely soon-to-be fiance) Taylor Swift attends. My source say that Taylor’s presence at games brings in MILLIONS in additional revenue so that’s why Travis is getting the bonuses when she attends.

DONALD TRUMP IS COMPLAINING ABOUT HIS LAWYER

It’s not quite a “We Told You So” yet, but it seems to be headed in that direction, so stay tuned. We recently reported that Donald Trump had a secret strategy to delay his ongoing criminal trial: replace his attorney, Todd Blanche, and then claim he needs more time to find adequate legal representation. Well guess what? Today the Huffington Post reported that Trump is fed up with his attorney. (see link below) According to my source, it was none other than Trump who had this story leaked to plant the seed that his representation is subpar. As my source explained, this is part of Trump’s strategy to delay the trial until AFTER the November election.

HERE’S WHAT WE KNOW

Megan Fox made a surprise appearance at her former fiancé Machine Gun Kelly’s recent 34th birthday party. Many people were surprised because they assumed their relationship was over after they called off their engagement. We know that the couple are still together for now, working on the relationship with therapy sessions a few times a week. Their engagement is still on pause and they’re not technically in a committed relationship, but couple’s counseling is helping them decide whether they should stay together and work toward marriage or go their separate ways.

Blast from the past, Delta Burke, made a surprise appearance on the Glamorous Trash podcast and while she dished the dirt on what happened with her exit from Designing Women , what she didn’t reveal is that CBS is working on a reunion movie, bringing back Delta, Jean Smart and Annie Potts. We know that the tentative script has them reuniting in Atlanta for the funeral of Julia Sugarbaker played by the late Dixie Carter. It’s not a done deal yet, but if the stars align the funny women will be back in Atlanta making us laugh.

Catch and kill has been in the news a lot this week thanks to Donald Trump’s ongoing criminal trial in New York City. Former National Enquirer honcho David Pecker testified how the tabloids make deals to purchase unfavorable stories about certain celebrities and not print them in exchange for cooperation from the celebrity. Our longtime work with the tabloids certainly made us familiar with this concept and while we weren’t there when the Trump agreement was hashed out, we can share this juicy tidbit. Decades ago the Enquirer made a similar deal with Bill Cosby – in exchange for not publishing stories about his wandering eye, Cosby provided the tabloid with exclusive interviews and information for years.

David Beckham made the news twice this week. First when he posted a video to his social media of The Spice Girls reuniting to honor of Victoria Beckham‘s 50th birthday. His second headline was his $18.8 million lawsuit against Mark Wahlberg and his fitness company F 45. Here’s what we know about both stories… Not only did the Spice Girls reunite for Victoria’s birthday, but they’re planning to perform together at next year‘s Grammy awards as they are set to be honored. As for the lawsuit, we’re hearing that it’s going to get ugly unless it gets settled quickly. David is confiding to pals he has some sort of smoking gun, but he’s not revealing exactly what it is!

And finally, Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce were vacationing in Carmel, California, this week but rest and relaxation weren’t the only reasons they were there. We can tell you this: The couple is looking to put down roots in California outside of Los Angeles, where Taylor already has a home. In addition to the Carmel and nearby Monterey area, they are also considering Santa Barbara. They are looking for a coastal community where they can settle down and raise a family. We heard that was the REAL reason they spent time up there and plan to visit Santa Barbara in the near future as well.

DONALD TRUMP IS SCHEMING TO GET HIS TRIAL DELAYED UNTIL AFTER ELECTION

Remember WHERE you read this. According to my source, Donald Trump has a trick up his sleeve to delay or postpone his ongoing criminal trial. My source reveals that Donald‘s latest tactic involves getting his attorneys FIRED or having them QUIT,  if he doesn’t like the way his current trial in Manhattan is proceeding. His goal has always been to delay, delay, delay, so don’t be surprised if there is a sudden and unexpected announcement that he needs to delay the trial until AFTER the November election in order to hire new legal representation.

HERE’S WHAT WE KNOW

After over a month of being in two hospitals, first UCLA and then Cedars Sinai, Kate Beckinsale gave a hint on social media that she was suffering from stomach issues. Here’s what we know: For years, Kate has suffered from severe acid reflux, which gets worse when she’s going through stressful times. The death of her stepfather threw her into a tizzy and her acid reflux was SO bad that she was vomiting after every meal – don’t get this confused with bulimia though. Kate finally seems to have gotten the problem under control, but is now on a very restricted diet to control her body’s overproduction of acid.

Travis Kelce just signed a 20 episode deal with Amazon Prime Video to host the upcoming game show, Are You Smarter Than A Celebrity? What he DIDN’T reveal in the announcement is that he’s counting on his girlfriend Taylor Swift to get her famous celebrity friends to appear on his show. Here’s another interesting tidbit: Travis’ deal promises him a huge bonus if he gets Taylor to appear. According to our source, she hasn’t agreed, but she also hasn’t said no.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard’s estranged husband Ryan Anderson might be making lemonade from the lemons his marriage turned into. Gypsy Rose claimed that she was divorcing Ryan over many things, including his habit of hoarding food. Plus-sized Ryan has been offered an endorsement deal to lose up to 200 pounds using a new diet drug that’s similar to Ozempic, and hitting the market soon. Our source says that Ryan has wanted to slim down for a while and is motivated by the upcoming divorce to get in the best shape of his life.

Valerie Bertinelli made the news over her new romance with East Coast based writer Mike Goodnough. After hinting about the romance for weeks, Valerie and Mike just went public. While they’re claiming it will be a long distance relationship since he lives on the East Coast and she lives in Malibu, we are hearing that Valerie is already looking at property in Manhattan. She’s planning to spend a lot of time in the New York area now that she’s dating Mike, and wants a condo on the Upper West Side.

Finally, one last interesting Donald Trump tidbit. His criminal trial started in New York City this week and my source is revealing that his attorneys aren’t so thrilled about the thought of having every lunch with Donald. Here’s why: It’s customary for attorneys and their clients to have lunch together during courtroom breaks, but paranoid Donald is so afraid that someone will poison him, that he insists on only eating fast food for lunch. While his attorneys realize they need to spend this time with him going over the trial, some of them have started packing their own lunches so they don’t have to subject themselves to Donald’s daily doses of fast food.

HERE’S WHAT WE KNOW

Travis Kelce made headlines this week when he revealed on his podcast that he’s living the happiest life he’s ever lived. Here is what we know. Since being linked with Taylor Swift, Travis’ income and business opportunities, including endorsement deals, have increased exponentially. He’s making money hand over fist and combined with the perks of dating Taylor it’s easy to see why he claims he’s living his “best life.” Our source predicts that Travis and Taylor will be engaged before the end of the summer if not sooner.

Florida governor Ron DeSantis and the Walt Disney Company seemed to bury the hatchet after an ongoing battle. While much of this has to do with the fact that Ron is no longer running for president and doesn’t feel the need to generate headlines with outlandish lawsuits, we’re also hearing his wife, Casey was the one who urged him to make peace with the entertainment giant. Here’s why… Casey loves Disney World! It’s where she and Ron got married so she truly finds it one of the happiest places on earth.  She realized she couldn’t be seen there when Ron was at war with Disney but now that the fight is over she plans on being there a lot and renewed her annual pass.

Britney Spears got people talking this week when she posted a since deleted Instagram video of her and her ex-husband Sam Asghari. According to our source, there’s a reason for the sentimental post. The duo haven’t been in contact since splitting up but they’ve recently begun talking again. While it’s too soon to call it a reconciliation, we’re hearing that it’s certainly not out of the question as Brit misses having Sam around. Stay tuned as we will share more details as we hear them.

Gypsy Lee Blanchard made headlines when she announced her short-lived prison marriage to Ryan Anderson was over. No sooner did she announce the split than she was seen hanging out with her ex fiancé, Ken Urker. Here’s what we know: Gypsy enjoys being in the spotlight and is secretly working on a pilot for a reality series based on her life after prison. Her husband Ryan wasn’t so keen on the idea and VERY uncomfortable in front of the camera, but her ex-fiancé Ken also seems to relish being in the spotlight. As of now, Gypsy and Ken are claiming they’re just friends, but we’re hearing a romance is percolating to go along with the planned reality show.

And finally, Donald Trump made headlines once again (surprise surprise!) after posting a $175 cash million bond in his appeal of his $400+ million civil judgment in New York City.  We are hearing that Donald is working hard to come up with money making plans to pay off the debt since he had to borrow the cash. Our source says that in addition to hawking $60 Bibles, Donald is actively working behind the scenes to put his name on everything from fragrances to shampoo. He’s working every angle to make a buck.

MIKE PENCE HAS A BIG DECISION TO MAKE

We all heard Mike Pence announce that he won’t endorse his former running mate, Donald Trump, in his bid to retake the White House. But here’s the shocker: according to my D.C. source, the former Vice President is being courted to endorse President Joe Biden! For now Pence is saying he’s not endorsing anyone, but behind closed doors, negotiations are taking place to see what it would take to get Pence to endorse Biden. Although the politicians couldn’t be more opposite in their beliefs, my source says that’s there’s still a civility and mutual respect, so if a deal can be struck, Pence COULD pop up in political ads for Biden…

DONALD TRUMP ISN’T TALKING ABOUT OZEMPIC

Get ready to see a whole lot LESS of Donald Trump. Before you get too excited, the polarizing politician isn’t going anywhere except to his doctors to get the weight loss drug Ozempic. According to our source, stout Donald wants to lose weight so he looks fit on the campaign trail leading up to the November election. He’s not a fan of dieting and can’t give up his beloved fast food, so he’s hoping the miracle drug helps him painlessly and quietly, shed the flab. One more tidbit according to our source – he won’t be the ONLY one in his family who’s turned to the drug to stay thin. We’ll let you guess that one yourself…
