Angelina Jolie Discusses “By The Sea” In Vogue November 2015 Cover Story
Her new film “By the Sea” is slated to hit theaters on November 13th, and Angelina Jolie talked with Vogue about working with (and directing) her husband Brad Pitt.
The “Changeling” chick explained, "It's not autobiographical. Brad and I have our issues, but if the characters were even remotely close to our problems we couldn't have made the film. It was our honeymoon.”
Angelina also addressed the non-traditional approach she and her handsome hubby took to making the project different than their other films. "As artists we wanted something that took us out of our comfort zones. Just being raw actors. It's not the safest idea. But life is short."

#RHoA SHADE? Has Sheree Whitfield Peach been SNATCHED?
For months there were rumors Sheree Whitfield had been returned to full wife status on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Now insiders say Sheree' feels tricked out of her peach by RHOA producer Carlos King…

Insiders tell The Daily Mail Real Housewives of Atlanta producer Carlos King promised Sheree' her peach back after he stole her idea for a reality show.
Apparently Sheree shared her idea with Carlos for a reality show about female real estate agents in Atlanta and Carlos turned around and pitched the idea and sold the concept behind Sheree's back.
As a consolation, and to keep Sheree from filing a lawsuit against him, Carlos promised Sheree' he'd get her back on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

However when it was time to sign contracts Sheree learned she had not been picked up for full status and would only appear in 10 to 12 of the 24 episodes and would not be part of the three part reunion show.

#TEAMEMPIRE Lee Daniels says he Didn’t Steal Drug Dealer’s Life Story for ‘Empire’, Demands 1 Billion Lawsuit Be DIMISSED!
Always a court case! Lee Daniels is blasting the 1 billion dollar lawsuit filed by a former drug dealer who accuses the director of stealing his life story for “Empire”, saying his hit show is a well written polished soap opera unlike the criminal’s violently graphic and sexually explicit story.
Earlier this year, self described “known ghetto player”, Ron Newt, filed a federal lawsuit against director Lee Daniels, Terrence Howard and the producers of “Empire“. The man claimed that the show is a carbon copy of his film about his own life as a “gangster, pimp and drug dealer”.

Newt claims he met Terrence at the Four Seasons hotel a while back and he told the actor about his documentary, “Bigger than Big” and Terrence told him he wanted to play him in the film adaptation.

Newt never heard back from the actor, but then he saw “Empire” and he claimed they stole numerous things from his doc and he demanded a billion dollars for the infringement of his work.
Then on October 15th, Lee Daniels, Terrence and the people behind the show fired back at the drug dealers 1 billion dollar lawsuit. Daniels explains that the man’s story is full of cold blooded killings, dismemberment and crude descriptions of his sexual escapades in graphic details — something that would never be shown on his TV show.

The director also says the music industry isn’t a major focus in the man’s story. He says it’s only briefly touched upon in his story unlike in “Empire”.
Daniels says his show is “dialogue-rich, soap opera styled family drama”, unlike Newt’s work which is graphic and dark. He says that the two works are NOT substantially similar. Also, the director says there is no evidence showing Terrence had any role in creating Empire, so even if he did meet with Newt it would have no effect on the TV show’s development.
Daniels says there are virtually no similarities between the twos and even if there was those similarities aren’t copyright-able.

The director, along with Terrence and the show producers, are demanding the 1 billion dollar lawsuit be thrown out….Your Thoughts?

Lamar Odom DRAMA! Khloe VS Liza? Tension Building A Hospital Showdown?
The claws have reportedly come out in the fight between Khloe and Morales as Morales accuses Khloe and the Kardashian clan of unfairly taking control in Lamar's time of crisis.
"Liza has been telling Lamar's friends that Khloe has a lot of nerve taking over," an insider told Radar. "Where has she been for the past six months? She had no problem exploiting Lamar for the stupid reality show. "
The source also says that Morales scoffs at Khloe's righteous indignation at the brothel owner Dennis Hof attempting to visit Lamar in the hospital.
"For Khloe to look down on Dennis (Hof-brothel owner) when he attempted to visit Lamar in the hospital is even more proof that she is full of herself," the insider said.
"At least Dennis runs an honest business and isn't fake. Liza has no issue with the women or Dennis, her beef is with Khloe."

Morales has also accused Khloe of leaking stories to the media in an effort to make herself look good.
"Even as Lamar was unconscious, Khloe's surrogates were feeding stories to the media that she had arranged for Liza and the kids to be flown out from New York City. There is a very different version of events according to Liza, and the real truth will come out when the time is right."
But worst of all Morales says Khloe has refused to let Lamar's teen children, Destiny and Lamar Jr., have any alone time with their ailing father.
"Things are very tense with Khloe and Liza. Khloe is in the room with Lamar all the time, even when the kids are there. The kids don't get any alone time with their dad. None at all."
As Lamar Odom continues to fight for his life after an apparent drug overdose at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada, another fight is occurring at his bedside — between his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian and the mother of his children, Liza Morales.

Tavis Smiley Set To Develop New TV Series About Michal Jackson’s Last Days
There’s a new series in the works set to give us an inside look at Michael Jackson’s last months, six years after his passing. And it’s being developed by talk show host/author/producer Tavis Smiley.

According to Deadline, Tavis has inked a multi-year development deal with Warner Bros. Television Group to develop scripted TV series. And one of his first projects will be TV adaptations of two of his books, the upcoming Before You Judge Me: The Triumph And Tragedy of Michael Jackson’s Last Days, an account of the last 16 months of his life, and My Journey With Maya, a memoir of Tavis’ nearly 30-year relationship with legendary poet Maya Angelou.

A synopsis of the book is below:
Set to be published in June 2016, Before You Judge Me is described as a taut novelistic rendering of the final months in the life of the iconic pop star, chronicling his constant hunt for privacy in a life that was more public than almost any other, and the pressures he endured as someone whose fame made him socially fragile and almost unable to live.

No word (yet) on when the series will debut, but it’s likely to be a little ways away. Since the book won’t be published until June 2016, we assume the show will debut sometime after that. I’ll keep you posted.

If you follow Russell Simmons on social media or have a RushCard, you’re quite aware that this week the prepaid debit card system had a widespread problem with frozen accounts. Reportedly, earlier this week, RushCard experienced outages. Simmons posted a series of updates on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Sharing a Facebook video message, he stated:

I want to personally reassure you that your funds are safe and that we are addressing every issue as quickly as possible. I deeply apologize for the hardship this is causing and give you my solemn commitment that we will fix these problems.

Simmons founded RushCard in 2003. It is part of Rush Communications, a media, finance and fashion company and one of the many business interests of Simmons, who also created Def Jam Recordings and Phat Farm clothing.

Laverne Cox posts makeup free, no weave selfie
Laverne Cox wants you to know what she looks like without makeup.
The “Orange Is The New Black” standout star recently posted an au naturale selfie via Instagram in which she flaunted a ‘No Makeup, No Filter [and] No Weave’ look and we have to admit we love it!

While Cox can now proudly post a makeup free selfie, she hasn’t always been bursting with confidence. In an interview with U.K. publication The Guardian earlier this year, Cox said “I have been picking myself apart my whole life. — Years ago, I wanted really highly invasive surgical procedures to feminise my face,” she said. “All these years later, I have the money to do it, but I don’t want it. I don’t want it! I’m happy that this is the face that God gave me, and it’s imperfect.”
In her interview with The Guardian, she even recalled an instance in which an Instagram user suggested she get a nose job. “No, girl!” she replied, noting she didn’t post a reply. “My fans were like, that’s the nose African Americans have, and what’s wrong with that? My fans had my back. In those moments I have to look in the mirror and say, this is my black nose, and it’s gorgeous.” Okay!

What do you think of Cox’s makeup free, au naturale selfie?

Lady Gaga has a Baby Bump Beautiful On “American Horror Story: Hotel” Set
Reporting for another day of drama duty, Lady Gaga filmed scenes for an upcoming episode of “American Horror Story: Hotel” on Wednesday afternoon (October 14).

The “Just Dance” diva wore 1920s-style attire as she strolled around the lot in between takes, and it appears that her character is definitely pregnant judging from the baby bump beneath her vintage dress.
Meanwhile, Mother Monster confessed to Billboard magazine that while her life is filled with fame and fortune, she still struggles privately with depression and anxiety. "There is something in the way that we are now, with our cell phones and people are not looking at each other and not being in the moment with each other, that kids feel isolated. They read all of this extremely hateful language on the Internet. The Internet is a toilet. It is. It used to be a fantastic resource—but you have to sort through sh-t to find the good stuff. I’ve suffered through depression and anxiety my entire life, I still suffer with it every single day. I just want these kids to know that that depth that they feel as human beings is normal. We were born that way. This modern thing, where everyone is feeling shallow and less connected? That‘s not human."

Who would have thought we would be able to see boobies and pussy just by looking at your back. Almost seems like you’re an answer to a riddle.
