Dennis Rodman seems to be juggling too many hard balls of late, leaving his trail blazing with nothing but smoke and a chunk of back child/alimony support . Another sad story of a famous athlete whose career sky rocketed and plummeted due to bad behaviour and his hard style partying.
Even after his basketball career suffered, the notorious Rodman still had endorsements and appearances coming his way. After all, he was a former Defensive Player of the Year and a seven-time rebounding champion and that certainly still had long term pay-offs.
However, Rodman is now facing possible jail time of 20 days due to charges filed by his ex wife Michelle Rodman for his failure to pay child support amounting to $ 808,935 for their 2 children and $ 51, 441 in alimony.
The 51 yr old basketball Hall of Famer has his attorneys out with a public statement that he is broke and extremely sick. There has been no specific comment as to what Rodman is suffering from , but many speculate his documented drinking and partying may have taken a huge toll.
Undoubtedly, it is pretty hard to keep up with finances when one’s income hardly supports non stop party hopping and a third ex wife running her tab of expenses at $ 17, 000 a month plus attorney’s fees!

Whatever you think about Kim Kardashian being flour bombed, it is very clear that the star – or at least her sister – didn’t appreciate it. While she took it all in stride during the event (she even laughed and cracked jokes), Khloe has released a statement via her blog. Read the rest of this entry »

Something warm and fuzzy seems to be brewing between Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria and muy caliente papi Prison Break star Amaury Nolasco. Although these two have long been good friends, the pair have been stepping out a lot lately for some friendly tete-a-tete .
Just fresh from her split with Penelope Cruz’ hermano, Eduardo Cruz, nothing seems to have stomped Longoria from getting back on the saddle in the dating scene.
The hunky latino Amaury is known to be hooked up with Jennifer Morrison, but oddly enough the 41 yr old Nolasco seems to be flying solo each time he’s been spotted goofing about on the town in the public eye with Longoria.
We don’t know if this is all some good ole platonic PDA , but after some keen roving eyes have seen the friendly pair out enjoying dinner just recently, something seems a little too sweet and uberly comfortable about the two, who were both still looking delish dressed down in jeans.
The tattlers are on the move and when tongues start a-waggin’ …you’re sure there’s something saucy brewing.
Longoria just turned 37 recently and she’s definitely finding better ways to start off another year to her name . The actress is looking forward to working on some good ole patriotic favors for Barack Obama’s bid for a second term. Aside from that, her ongoing contract with L’Oreal also keeps her on her toes with her duties as it’s beauty ambassador.

Ashton Kutcher must be cooking up something in his 10 million dollar pad. Roving eyes have been spotting some very personal home visits and midnight runs to the bachelor’s pad from high profile celebs.
Justin Bieber made a recent visit to Ashton’s abode, and apparently is interested in becoming the new owner of Kutcher’s pad. No real word of sale on the property has been released but, the 34 year old Ashton might be looking into possibities.
Then again, we can’t see a common ground between Kutcher and Bieber for some male bonding other than their …uh, sordid tangles with the media and their private lives.
Another eye brow raising turn of event in the Kutcher pad, was 24 year old singer Rihanna who was spotted doing a midnight run along with her security posse’ to Ashton’s home.
Hmmm, is she looking to buy the property maybe? Or have they recently become close friends? Midnight friendly calls is pretty common for high profile celebs one would think, but probing questions are looming over this recent sighting, as our spotters noted Rihanna didn’t leave Ashton’s pad until around 4am.
So who knows what’s cooking at the Kutcher bachelor pad these days. All we know is that the recent divorce’ has signed up to be the 500th space traveller to take a voyage into space with Virgin Galactic. Yep, that’s the title of ‘astronaut’ if you want that written down on your resume’.

Jessica Alba is one of those mamas that go beyond hot. While I have never been particularly into her, her steel underneath sultry looks stand out. The actress, who also doubles as a wife and mom, has branched out into other endeavors. Recently, she launched her own business called The Honest Company. The idea is not new – there is a host of other companies in the same niche – but it seems to be a passion for Alba.
The Honest Company aims to deliver family products that are natural and safe. At the same time, it offers personalized service. It works by asking some questions of the consumer first in order to customize products that will be sent to your doorsteps on a monthly basis. No, I haven’t tried it, but it seems to be going well for the actress turned entrepreneur. Read the rest of this entry »
Everyone seems to be abuzz on Jlo’s new hubba bubba ever since she’s been openly toting 24 year old Casper Smart alongside her almost everywhere these days. It was just recently at the elimination round on American Idol when Jlo had her boyfriend come around to visit the set and had a pretty good round of jabbing with host Ryan Seacrest. The couple were comfortable enough in view of the audience to exchange adoring gazes at each other while chitchatting during commercdial breaks.
The 42 yr old Idol judge has been defending her 5 month budding May –December love with her back up dancer saying that Smart is a really sweet guy and she doesn’t feel any older, and that she definitely doesn’t look any older than he is either. All she does is act the same way as she always does.
Coming out of a divorce from singer ex husband Marc Anthony, Lopez speaks proudly of how they have been handling things as parents to their twins. As for her current relationship, she would rather keep It private as she wants to be open to someone who fills the many spaces left neglected when she needed them in her marriage. Who’s to judge what love is between JLo and Casper Smart? Age is just a number.

Still grieving over the loss of her mother, Bobbi Kristina seems to have found her own way of coping with death in the arms of her 22 yr old “brother”, Nick Gordon. Whitney Houston’s death surely has stirred some pretty disturbing issues lurking in the wake of her demise as her 19 year old daughter has been openly physically affectionate towards her adopted brother. This has caused some concern for both the Houston matriarch, Cissy Houston and her granddaughter.
As of press time, Bobbi has been seen publicly sporting what seems to be an engagement bling on her finger. Word has spread that the “siblings” are secretly engaged and are planning a wedding rendezvous in Vegas sometime soon. They have been spotted around their hometown in Atlanta, carelessly throwing out some serious “non- brotherly/sisterly” PDA for everyone to see.
Although the two are not blood relatives to begin with, as Nick Gordon was taken in by Whitney Houston at the age of 12 to live with her since his mother was incapable of taking care of him and his father was serving a sentence in prison. Bobbi and Nick lived in the same home and obviously have shared a deep bonded connection growing up together.
Whether this may be some distorted romance, Bobbi is determined to dismiss any family interference, as her grandmother has not been pleased about the turn of events, calling the relationship “incestuous”.
The matriarch is adamant on her intentions of having Gordon evicted from Whitney Houston’s townhouse where he lives with Bobbi.

There isn’t anything you can do to hide love and the bling it brings into your life. No matter how our fave celebrity couples try to keep romance on the down low, that significant bauble is pretty darn hard not to notice!
Even after months from getting engaged, Hollywood power couple Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have been playing it low key with their engagement last year.
Much of our congratulatory toast to the super fit couple who seem to just have missed out on letting tinsel town get a glimpse of the engagement rock on 30 year old Jessica Biel.
It was only on a recent errand run in LA that Biel officially flashed us the big blinding bauble and shared her secret to staying in shape before she walks down the aisle with her hottie hubbie to be.
Jessica reveals it is the adventure of a work out that keeps her from getting bored with a routine. Discovering ways to enjoy the outdoors and incorporating physical activity on any day at the park such as biking or following a short hiking trail does wonders.
Not everyone is an athlete but training for strength will definitely give you some to-die-for muscles in all the right places and makes your body look leaner. Biel opts for hardcore strength training exercises such as walking lunges that can get those glutes in tip top shape. Light weights and more reps is the key to her lean frame.
And after all that, this super body actress alternates her work out with yoga for muscle lengthening and pairs it with a sensible diet of healthy fresh food. Breakfast with complex carbs, fruits for munchies, and good ole fish and lots of greens for a light dinner. But of course, everyone has to have those days when you just got to have some guilty indulgence. Biel believes in having a cheat day and that’s just one day when she can have anything her heart desires to keep the balance. Life sans such a day according to this hottie bride to be, can sometimes drive anyone to a nutty edge.

After 2 marriages that didn’t work out so well for award winning actress Halle Berry, it seems love has found it’s way back into her life again. Just over the holidays, 45 yr old Berry gave her big yes to Olivier Martinez but surprisingly enough the couple opted to keep the news to themselves.
Olivier Martinez , 46, finally broke the happy news at the opening of their restaurant , the Villa Azur in Miami.
Fate brought the two love birds together while they were working on Dark Tide. It was in 2010 that they officially became a Hollywood dating power couple.
Apparently, there have been issues with regards to the engagement bauble, as according to Martinez, some jeweller has been wanting to put its name on the design of the ring. The actor has strongly stressed there is no truth the claim of the said jeweller and confirms that the ring is a an original design by Robert Mazlo.
The ring designer hails from the Martinez’ old neighbourhood in Saint Germain des Pres and is a much acclaimed artist who has done years and years of work for a lot of royal families.
Halle Berry was married in 1993 for four years to major leagues baseball player David Justice and once again married R& B singer Eric Benet. Unfortunately, her last marriage only lasted for 2 years . She also has a 3 yr old daughter with recent ex boyfriend Gabriel Aubry. As for the suave French fiance’, Olivier Martinez was in a relationship with Kylie Minogue for a good number of years.
Hopefully, these two have found keepers in each other’s arms this time around.

Hollywood heart throbs are the bread and butter of the paparazzi and the juice of tabloids. Not a single one of them can escape the roving eye of cameras whenever they’re out on the town with their latest flame and flavour of the month. If you’re the type who stalks a certain celebrity, then you’re pretty much on top of his/her current dating life.
Keeping a relationship under the flashing lights of the camera and the peering eyes of the public has taken a toll on a lot of celebrity relationships. It’s a feat to keep any romance under close wraps for a good while until the said celebrity couple even gets the chance to go on a second date.
Josh Hartnett has always been one of Hollywood’s most eligible heart throbs. But for some reason, this man has some sneaky tricks up his sleeve as many of you wouldn’t even know he dated a number of Hollywood bombshells.
There are no secrets in Hollywood held for that long and fresh out of the dating bag is Josh Hartnett and Amanda Seyfried. Where did that come from? Heh, no one knew the couple were working on a sweet romance since January as they were apparently set up by a friend.
And just to add more to your celebrity dating trivia on the very private Josh Hartnett, back in 2007 – he was spending some sweet loving in LA, and New York and a romantic getaway in Turks and Caicos together with, guess who? Penelope Cruz! Bet you didn’t even smell that at all.
In the same year, while promoting his vampire inspired thriller 30 Days of Night, word got around that the actor was dating Rihanna. It was in November 2007 that The Mirror had the singer admitting they were more than just friends and she took it all back in full denial of a relationship at an interview with Allure.
Scarlet Johansson was notably dating Josh Hartnett in 2005 but their relationship only lasted for a year blaming it on busy schedules and too much time apart to make it work.

Talk about celebrities and two things will usually come to mind — fame and money. We expect celebrities to not just be extremely famous but also swimming in money. I’m sure that you’re mental picture of a celebrity is one that is living the high life – jetsetting all over the globe, enjoying all of the great comforts and buying stuff left and right. It may be the expected profile of a celebrity but you’ll be surprised to know that there are many celebrities out there that actually know what the word “frugality” means and actually apply it in their lives.

Looks like there will be no wedding bells for the belle of the tennis court and her crooner lovey. Although going fairly strong with their 11 year relationship, Enrique Iglesias won’t be popping the question any time soon to Anna Kournikova.
Although the pair have been quite the elusive couple to the media, Enrique explains himself as to why marriage won’t be in the works for him and Anna. Coming from divorced parents, Iglesias partly attributes his views on marriage on this and says marriage doesn’t make you love someone more due to a piece of paper.
Their commitment doesn’t make their relationship any less than a married couple. The singer also points out how society has been more accepting of kids born into parents who aren’t married as the difference lies in the matter being a good parent.
Apparently, many have been nagging the 36 year old singer about his previous reference to his 30 yr old tennis belle as his wife. This took place at a concert in Russia back in April of 2011. Iglesias explains that the word “wife” would have made more sweet sense to his audience than calling Anna his “girl”
Of course, it takes two to tango in an 11 year committed relationship. It takes a special kind of girl to keep Enrique Iglesias crooning at her feet. And this definitely makes Anna Kournikova a perfect match since she shares his same views on marriage. The tennis pin up girl says as long as she’s in a truly happy relationship, it is all that actually matters even without that legally binding piece of paper to show their love and commitment.
I wonder though, how these two would take to big money deals sans a contract, since it just a piece of paper?
