Your Wednesday latest and greatest;
In music news David Bowie has a new song out called “Blackstar.” It is the theme song for a crime drama called ‘The Last Panthers’ which will soon be shown on Great Britain’s Sky Channel. There seems to be only a snippet of the song available which will be used in the show’s opening credits. It seems to be a dark song for an even darker drama. Too bad we don’t get Sky Channel.
The Cure announced today that they will be touring with the band Twilight Sad, a Scottish punk rock band. They have only released three stops on their North American tour which of course include Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. The rest of the dates will be released in January. Seems ‘Just Like Heaven’ to me.
For the NY Yankees this may be coming at a very odd time for their fans; CC Sabathia has checked into rehab for alcohol addiction. He cites wanting to be a better man, father and player. He states that he realizes this comes at a very inopportune time just before the World Series. He has struggled with this for some time. We are looking forward to his return next season!
In more NY sports news, there is a juicy tidbit regarding Vincent Cruz, NY Giants wide receiver (who has been sitting out due to a bum knee) and his fiancée, Elaina. She sent a group text out to all of Vincent’s numerous ‘lady friends’ who have been kindly soothing him while he has been sidelined. In her group text she writes, “Hello ladies, this is Elaina, Victor Cruz’s fiancée. You all know about me and I seem to be the topic of conversations in all of your conversations with Vic. I’m sure he’s told you many of things about us and how we don’t exist but given the fact that you all meet him in hotel rooms only, we all know that’s a lie, just as he tells me you all are whores and mean nothing to him…. I figured since you all know about me, then I should introduce each one of you to each other and so we can all know who we have all been f*cking for the past several months. So ladies meet one another and feel free to exchange notes.” Good for her! I seriously hope she is now his ex-fiancée.
There are gay rumors surrounding Kordell Stewart, ex-NFL Pittsburgh Steelers star. His accuser is Andrew Caldwell who recently went on a radio show and admitted that he and Kordell were in a ‘secret’ relationship. He says Kordell bought him purses and expensive cars. Stewart’s response to that was that Caldwell is delusional and he says he doesn’t even know him or has ever heard of him. He goes on to say, “There’s no room in my personality for that lifestyle. It’s not what I believe in. I’m a heterosexual man.”
Jennifer Garner was spotted out looking rather pregnant. She is spotted in a rather loose fitting white cotton shirt that clearly shows what appears to be a baby bump. She has three children with Ben Affleck. There have been rumors that Ben slept with the family’s nanny as well as divorce rumors between Ben and Jen. Perhaps they’ve made up??
Robert De Niro has been busy. He’s playing Bernie Madoff in HBO’s film Wizard of Lies. He was spotted on the streets of Manhattan in a staged paparazzi attack as Bernie Madoff- Michelle Pfeiffer plays Ruth Madoff, the wife of the worst Ponzi scheme creator. De Niro was unrecognizable and hours of make-up and a fat suit later totally channeled Madoff. The real Madoff is spending 150 years in prison as he had a career of defrauding his clients out of $65 billion dollars over a 20 year period and was guilty of 11 felonies.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks dose of gossip. Please let me know if there are any particular celebs you like to know about. I will be glad to add those in my weekly column.
It’s almost Friday. Enjoying the October weather. My son’s soccer match isn’t quite so brutal this time of year since Fall has arrived. We recently put up Halloween decorations and we have a motion detector witch that cackles when you walk past her, which causes me to almost wet my pants every time she gets triggered.
