Kelly Osbourne has quit as a co-host of E! show Fashion Police, days after threatening to leave over the fall-out following ill-advised remarks her colleague Giuliana Rancic made about her friend Zendaya Coleman's red carpet look at the Oscars.
The teenage actress took offence to Rancic's comments about her dreadlocked look, prompting the TV presenter to offer her a heartfelt apology. Osbourne, who was seated next to Rancic when she suggested Coleman looked like she "smelled of weed", was dragged into the drama by fans, who took to social media to criticize Kelly for not objecting at the time. She reminded her Twitter followers that she hadn't made the comments, stating, "I WILL NOT BE DRAGED (sic) INTO THIS! The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties. I hope you can leave it to them & do the same!" She added, "I'm giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel. contactually (sic) Im not allowed to speak!"
Confirming the news of her departure on Friday (27Feb15), an E! spokesman said, "Kelly Osbourne is departing E!s Fashion Police to pursue other opportunities. We would like to thank her for her many contributions to the series over the past five years, during which time the show became a hit with viewers."
Osbourne will not feature on the show when it returns to TV at the end of March (15). It is not known who will replace her.
Shortly after news of her departure broke, Osbourne's mother Sharon tweeted her support to her daughter, writing, "@KellyOsbourne, I am so proud of you. You can never be bought. You always wear your heart on your sleeve. #ProudToBeYourMum."
Fight Club stars Edward Norton and Brad Pitt are reteaming to produce a new TV mini-series about American explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Casey Affleck, who appeared alongside Pitt in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and Matthias Schoenaerts will portray the two adventurers in the six-hour series, adapted from the book Undaunted Courage, written by Stephen E. Ambrose.
Lewis and Clark led the Corps of Discovery Expedition in the early 1800s and became the first men to cross what is now the western portion of the United States, from the Mississippi River to the Pacific coast.
Production on the series is scheduled to begin this summer (15).
Tom Hanks is on board as an executive producer.
Gwyneth Paltrow has already won the year's too-much-information prize by revealing all about her favorite vagina steam.
In a new blog post on her Goop.com website, the actress coos about the intimate services offered by experts at the Tikkun spa in Los Angeles, telling readers she enjoys the place's Mugworth V-Steam treatment.
Pampered Paltrow explains, "You sit on what is essentially a mini-throne, and a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus, et al. It is an energetic release - not just a steam douche - that balances female hormone levels. If you're in L.A., you have to do it."
Making sure her next trip to Tikkun is an all-expenses-paid treat, she adds, "(It) is the next level when it comes to Korean spas, combining high-tech far infrared heat with traditional Korean sauna therapies.
"If you want to lay down in a Himalayan salt brick tiled sauna, or sit in a Hwangto clay room, you get the added benefit of far infrared heat. And, in addition to the sauna rooms, there's a long menu of massages and kick-ass body scrubs to complement the sauna time."
Gwyneth Paltrow has shocked fans by revealing she has taken illegal party drug ecstasy.
The Iron Man star, whose Goop website is dedicated to healthy living, made the revelation during an appearance on U.S. TV show Watch What Happens Live when host Andy Cohen asked her a series of personal questions as part of his Plead The Fifth segment. Guests are allowed to skip one out of three questions, and Paltrow chose to answer when Cohen asked her, "What is the hardest drug you've ever taken?" Paltrow replied, "Ecstasy" without elaborating.
The actress is mother to two young children, Apple and Moses, with her estranged husband Chris Martin.
Rihanna is reportedly helping her brother launch a career as a rapper.
The Umbrella hitmaker is keen to help her sibling Rorrey Fenty, who uses the stage name Gallest, with a planned assault on the charts and has reportedly recorded a number of tracks with him.
A source tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "(Rihanna) knows he has talent, but he loves to party and she wants him to achieve something musically first. She knows anything she guests on will help with his commercial success."
Actor Chris Pine harbours deep regrets about his portrayal of fictional assassin Jack Ryan in the most recent spy film adaptation, because he is convinced he did not do the franchise justice. The Star Trek star took on the role of the titular character in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit earlier this year (14), but the film's box office performance paled in comparison to previous releases in the Tom Clancy series, only grossing $135.5 million (£84.7 million) worldwide.
Pine, who was excited to be a part of the franchise, admits the mixed reviews and lacklustre box office figures have likely killed any plans for studio bosses to recruit him to make a follow-up - but he hopes the character can live on through another actor.
He tells Moviefone.com, "No, I don't think it made enough money for that (a sequel) to happen.
"That's one of my deep regrets, that we didn't totally get that right. It's a great franchise, and if it's not me, then I hope it gets a fifth life at this point. It's just great. I love the spy genre. I hope it's done again and with a great story."
Pine was the fourth actor to step in to the role of Jack Ryan - Harrison Ford was cast as the character in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger, while Alec Baldwin portrayed him in 1990's The Hunt For Red October.
Ben Affleck took over the role for 2002's The Sum of All Fears, which grossed $193.9 million (£121 million) globally after its release in 2002.
Actor Ben Stiller wants supermodel Cara Delevingne to feature in the sequel to Zoolander. The Along Came Polly star has let slip further information on the progress of the much-anticipated second installment of the fashion industry satire.
The first film, released in 2001, featured cameos from fashion heavyweights including Victoria Beckham, Tom Ford, Tommy Hilfiger, Karl Lagerfeld and Donatella Versace, and it is unknown what role Delevingne is being lined up for in the sequel.
Stiller tells MTV, "There is a script, I won't deny there's a script, and there's been a reading of the script... but it hasn't yet been fully formulated... (I) definitely would (like Delevingne to feature)."
Owen Wilson, who starred as Zoolander's rival in the first film, added, "I have seen the script and it seems funny."
Rihanna is using her star power to host the first Diamond Ball to support her Clara Lionel Foundation.
The Diamonds hitmaker launched the charity in 2012 and the organization aims to improve health, education, arts, and culture for communities around the world.
On 11 December (14), Rihanna will host and perform at the inaugural black tie fundraising event at The Vineyard in Beverly Hills, California. The pop star announced the details in a statement: "One of the greatest benefits of my job was being able to start the Clara Lionel Foundation in honor of my grandparents. There is truly nothing I'm more proud of and we've just gotten started. I'm excited to continue my work and thrilled to be able to host the Diamond Ball - a night that promises to be elegant and inspirational."
Actress Rose Mcgowan has apologized to gay rights groups after taking aim at homosexuals in a recent interview with author Brett Easton Ellis.
The Grindhouse star upset gay leaders by calling homosexual men "misogynists" as part of an ill-advised rant.
She said, "Gay men are as misogynistic as straight men, if not more so. I have an indictment of the gay community right now, I'm actually really upset with them. You wanna talk about the fact that I have heard nobody in the gay community, no gay males, standing up for women on any level? "I see now people who have basically fought for the right to stand on top of a (Gay Pride) float wearing an orange Speedo (swimming trunks) and take molly (drug MDMA)."
After receiving backlash from the gay community, McGowan took to Twitter.com to apologize for her remarks, explaining, "I was p**sed off when I said that, obvs (obviously) a gross over generalization, for which I apologize. But my point stands. Could I have articulated my frustration in a better fashion? Undoubtedly. For that I apologize."
She adds, "Where does it say that because of a man's sexual preference, I don't get to point out a group's character defects? It's a human rights issue. Misogyny endangers me as a human. It also endangers the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community."
Top fashion designer Tom Ford has paid a special tribute to R&B star Rihanna, hailing her as "one of the most beautiful women" he has ever met in a new blog entry. The gay style guru took to his website this week (begs03Nov14) to share his thoughts on the criticism surrounding his provocative spring 2015 collection, and he admitted drawing inspiration from contemporary barely-there fashions favoured by stars like Rihanna, who famously showed off her bare breasts in a sheer, glittery halter neck dress at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards in New York in June (14), when she was handed the 2014 Fashion Icon prize.
Recalling the event, at which Ford was also honoured, he writes, "I was at the CFDA awards as I was receiving a 'Lifetime Achievement Award'... and I have to say that Rihanna was for me, that night, one of the most beautiful women that I have ever beheld.
"I had designed several things for her specifically for that evening which she did not wear, but when I saw her it did not matter. I whispered into her ear that she was right not to have worn one of my dresses that night because she looked more beautiful than I have ever seen her look. She was stunning.
"As (his husband) Richard (Buckley) said plainly after the evening, 'If you are as beautiful as Rihanna, you almost owe it to the world to appear in public almost nude' and I have to say that I wholeheartedly concur."
The blog entry caught the Stay hitmaker's attention on Tuesday (04Nov14) and she shared her gratitude on Twitter.com with the message, "i.heart.Tom.Ford".
