Celebrity Sleaze




Big shout out to you IU Hoosiers!! Meryl Streep recently stopped by Indiana University to accept an honorary doctoral degree. During her acceptance speech, Streep revealed she wasn't so confident about her looks at the time she started acting. "I was always in plays, but I thought it was vain to be an actress," Streep admitted. "Plus, I thought I was too ugly to be an actress. Glasses weren't fabulous then." Streep also gave one very important piece of advice for aspiring young performers. "For young women, I would say, don't worry so much about your weight," she said. "Girls spend way too much time thinking about that, and there are better things. For young men, and women, too, what makes you different or weird, that's your strength. Everyone tries to look a cookie-cutter kind of way and actually the people who look different are the ones who get picked up. I used to hate my nose. Now I don't. It's OK."
 
 You may have read all about the apparently strained relationship between Julia Roberts and her half-sister, Nancy Motes, who died in February—but in a newly-released interview, Roberts insists her sister's death is "just heartbreak." She continues, "It's only been 20 days. There aren't words to explain what any of us have been through in these last 20 days. It's hour by hour some days, but you just keep looking ahead." The interview was conducted the day before the Oscars, but just released today. "You don't want anything bad to happen to anyone, but there are so many tragic, painful, inexplicable things in the world," Roberts says. "But [as with] any situation of challenge and despair, we must find a way, as a family. It's so hard to formulate a sentence about it outside the weepy huddle of my family."
Oprah Winfrey’s stepmother is throwing some SERIOUS SHADE at lady O!  Barbara Winfrey, says that Oprah called on her 64th birthday, and ordered her to get out of her house. Earlier this month, Barbara was finally served with an eviction notice and she has until May 29th to get out of the $1.4 million house near Nashville, her home for 14 years. Barbara claims that Oprah and Stedman Graham are not bound by romance but by shared secrets, convenience and money. She describes Oprah’s relationship with her friend Gayle King as ‘bizarre’ and ‘unhealthy,’ and that 'It wasn't unusual for Oprah to fly to her house in Hawaii, call Gayle (King) and say, "Fire so and so and so and so." Barbara also claims that Oprah refused to give her father Vernon the money to renovate his run-down barber shop, and says they weren’t allowed to mingle with celebs at Oprah’s parties. When Oprah threw her Legends' Ball, Vernon and Barbara weren't on the main floor with the A-listers but tucked in a corner on the second floor. 'We weren't allowed to mingle with the celebrities,' says Barbara, “but we did.” Oprah was never willing to take a DNA test to prove Vernon is her real dad. 'She can't believe such a silly man would make such a magnificent creature'. Her marriage to Vernon fell apart because of his ‘affair’ with a prostitute known as ‘One Tooth,’ but Barbara says they still speak and would have probably stayed together if not for Oprah.  See the FULL STORY HERE!

Let’s clear up a few dating rumors …Robert Pattinson is not dating Katy Perry but is apparently seeing her best friend.  He’s getting cozy with her stylist, Cleo Wade, and they all spent most of their time together at Coachella. And then there’s the rumor that ‘Orange is the New Black’ star Laura Prepon is dating Tom Cruise. She said that people "just make stuff up, [like] apparently I'm dating Tom Cruise right now. And apparently he doesn't want me doing the show because I portray a lesbian and I'm a Scientologist," she said. She added, "This is false; where are they even getting this stuff? It's unbelievable to me. The thing that sucks is that there's so much false data because people are in mystery as to what Scientology is, so they just kind of make up stuff."

Jay Z and Beyonce reportedly turned down an invite to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding to avoid being on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians." Instead, they’ve spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on a rented yacht for Kim and Kanye’s honeymoon, and Jay Z is also planning a fancy bachelor party at his New York club, 40/40. It had previously been reported that Beyonce didn’t care much for Kim, but the two ladies ran into each other at a dermatology clinic and chatted together.





BTW...James Franco was on The View talking about Kanye asking he and Seth Rogen to perform their "Bound 2" spoof live the night before their wedding.

Josh Hartnett is opening up about his famous ex-girlfriends, saying that he doesn't suggest people follow in his footsteps when it comes to dating costars. He said, "You can make a lot of enemies in the business that way. But when you work with somebody every day, it's like trial dating. You develop a fantasy about them. It doesn't always work out, does it?"
