Doctors operated on the E! network's news anchorwoman and Fashion Police regular on Tuesday night (13Dec11) and her husband Bill insists she's already in great spirits.
Rancic also underwent reconstructive surgery after her breasts were removed to stop the spread of cancer.
Her husband tells Eonline.com, "G is doing really well. Her surgery lasted about four hours and the doctors were very pleased with the result.
"She had a little bit of pain through the night but is feeling much better this morning and was cracking jokes."
And Rancic wasted no time in letting fans know she was OK, tweeting, "I want to thank all the viewers and fans for their support and prayers. The tweets and notes have not gone unnoticed. I am very grateful."
Courtney Love isn't exactly the poster child for outstanding behavior, but her antics may have gone one step too far this time. The actress is being held accountable for the disappearance of some pretty expensive jewelry (around the $100,000 mark) that mysteriously went missing last year. Apparently Love borrowed two diamond chains, a pair of diamond earrings, and a white-gold cuff bracelet from Jacob & Co. for a charity event at Cipriani's, but failed to return the items to the store. Of course, the Hollywood starlet pleads innocent to the whole thing and says it wasn't her fault. Love claims she totally intended to return the merchandise to the store, but before she had a chance to drop them off the hotel workers lost the bag that happened to contain said jewelry. After realizing the pricey jewels were missing, Love filed a report with the New York Police Department in hopes of recovering the lost items, but to no avail.
So the fashion-loving singer was only able to send back the white-gold cuff bracelet, but not the other pieces (even though she had signed an agreement with the store promising to return ALL the borrowed items). But a Manhattan judge wasn't buying the sob story and ruled Love is responsible for all of the jewelry, so she needs to pay up. However, the judge also decided that she may be able to pay less than the store is asking for after further negotiations, so the exact sum has yet to be determined. Either way, it looks like the rocker will be free to steal another day (because you know she's totally guilty).

There is more to the glitz and glam of Hollywood than meets the eye. Hidden beneath it all is a world full of drama, lying, cheating, and resentment where no petty comments are ever forgotten, especially if you're Kelly Osbourne. Man, this girl knows how to hold a grudge. On E!'s Fashion Police last Friday, the 26-year-old slammed Christina Aguilera for her weight claiming, The Voice host "called me fat for years," while adding, "I was never that fat." Granted, Christina wasn't exactly looking her best (or thinnest) at the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert (fishnet tights, heavy makeup and super-sized hair doesn't really scream "fashionista"), but it was still a rather harsh comment for Osbourne to make. I guess that whole Golden Rule thing was never enforced in Hollywood.
But Kelly wasn't the only co-host to attack Christina's figure. Joan Rivers quipped, "Lady Marmalade got into the peanut butter again," while George Kotsiopoulos added, "I'm looking at this and thinking, 'Well, she's put on weight. This just isn't flattering.' But this is just a crappy outfit, regardless. No matter what shape your body is in, it's just bad." But when George tried to defend the pop singer a little by saying she's "still probably a size 2/4," Kelly was quick to disagree, stating, "Trust me. I'm a 2/4. That is not a 2/4." Meow.
Osbourne battled her weight in the past, but after her 2009 stint on Dancing with the Stars she shed 48 pounds and kept it off. Although the weight may be gone, the memories of people criticizing her for being overweight remain. Kelly stated, "I took more hell for being fat than I did for being an absolute raging drug addict. I will never understand that." So it looks like poor Christina will be taking the front of the blame.

Occupy Wall Street has been going on for almost a month here in NYC, and in case you haven't heard about it, it's the movement where people go downtown to the city's financial district to convey their frustrations with corporate greed in various (but mainly peaceful!) ways. But the surprising part isn't that the protest has lacked violence (the police have been violent, but that's different). Instead, it's amazing Kanye West showed up there yesterday and uncharacteristically kept his mouth shut. He didn't take a moment to express any kind of empathy towards the people who have lost their jobs in the recession, and he didn't even make a statement that discouraged us from criticizing his fashion line so harshly because it's his very first fashion line. Instead, he just stood next to Russell Simmons and kept his mouth shut and allowed the surrounding cameras to pan in closely on his face as Russell explained Kanye was there to support the people, but he didn't want to do any interviews because he was so very much there to support the people. So it looks like Kanye has finally figured out what's best for everyone.
S1E2: Last week's Charlie's Angels series (reboot) premiere ended with the two Angels, Kate and Abbie, finally, officially welcoming Eve into the group. Tonight's episode sees them collaborating as if it'd always been that way.
Things kick off at a fashion show, with Eve and Abbie working the runway, Kate posing as a spectator in the first row, and bosley posing as a security guard -- and smirking when Eve almost reveals some sideboob. They're undercover investigating a model who's been missing and because they have a suspect in mind who's guaranteed to be on hand, stalking the pretty young things behind the safety of his camera.
They quickly learn that their suspect isn't involved, but it sends them in the right direction, down a trail of suspects that ultimately leads them to their man. The first one to question is Devin, the roommate of the missing girl, Gabriela. The Angels find it odd that Devin is already on the hunt for a new roommate and that she lives in a bona fide mansion on the water. So Abbie volunteers to be the one posing as a desperate, starving (no pun intended) model in need of a house, and even though she has no money for rent, Devin is happy to house her.
While on the tour of the mansion, Abbie notices the yellow tape still on the missing Gabriela's door and assures the other two Angels, who are listening in and tracking her every move, that Devin knows more than she is letting and/or is involved in Gabriela's disappearance.
Devin soon introduces Abbie to her lawyer, Mitch, a clear-cut sleazeball even before he opens his mouth and offers Abbie an easy way to supplement her income, which he promises to explain over dinner. At dinner, Mitch introduces Abbie to his "client," Carlos Obregon, and that's when things start to become a little clearer: Abbie is offered upwards of $200,000 to marry Obregon on paper -- "no intimate contact" -- so he can obtain a green card, which is a scam that all the models, including Gabriela (who is sadly found dead), were doing.
Ultimately, their cover at the restaurant becomes blown by Mitch, but he is apprehended, and the new development forces Devin to start cooperating, or else. And it leads the Angels to the real bad guy: Simon Genks, aka Nikolai Denko, a Czechan war veteran-turned-assassin who blames the Russians for his wife's death and is planning on taking out his anger on the First Lady of Russia ... by assassinating her in Miami (she's in town)!
But of course, that's not gonna happen on the Angels' watch. They learn of his plans and promptly attempt to foil them, and after a couple close calls -- including a slow-motion dive to protect the first lady and a second shooter -- they succeed. All seemingly ends well and peacefully, except for the romance department: Kate's ex-fiancee (Isaiah Mustafa, the Old Spice guy!), for whom she appeared to still have feelings and with whom she'd worked throughout the whole case (he's a Miami police detective), finally shows interest in getting back together, only to be spurned by Kate. At least for now.
BEST ANGEL MOMENTS
Kate: She poses as a fashion photographer to take pictures of suspect Devin and plays a caricature of the stereotype (uttering nonsensical things like "Smile with your eyes!" and shouting the obligatory "Fierce! Fierce!"), thus meeting the show's quota of one funny scene per episode.
Abbie: After the aforementioned Mitch catches her talking to the other Angels covertly and pulls a gun on her, she roundhouses him to the ground, leading to a toilet swirly.
Eve: Early in the episode, after all the Angels catch the stalker and corner him, it seems as though he's willing to surrender and cooperate. And then Eve tackles him into the Miami River!
Hyland, 20, was a guest commentator on catty Joan Rivers' E!'s Fashion Police programme last week (ends16Sep11) and mimicked Michele's serious behaviour and famous pout at the veteran comedienne's request.
The youngster's imitation drew laughs from Rivers and her co-presenters, but it did not go down well with Glee fans, who launched a bitter attack on Hyland on social networking sites like Twitter.com.
But Hyland claims she was only joking around and meant no harm by her onscreen jibes - because she secretly envies Michele's perfect poses.
Speaking on the red carpet at the Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday (18Sep11), she tells TV network E!, "They (Glee fans) are very protective over her and I did not mean it in any harm at all. And when Joan Rivers asks you what she looks like on the red carpet, you do it (the imitation)... She's hilarious.
"It was just in jest, that's it... She knows how to work it, she always takes a great picture! It was all fun and games and nothing was meant to be hurtful at all, whatsoever."
And now Hyland is trying to catch up with Michele to clear the air in person.
She says, "I have not seen her here tonight. I wanted to talk to her about it last night, at one of the pre-Emmy parties and I wasn't able to, so I don't know, maybe sometime I'll see her...!"
The artwork, a KAWS acrylic created on a Calvin Klein advertisement, was swiped by a brazen thief, who strolled into the Manhattan office building last Thursday evening (04Aug11), unhooked the piece from the wall of the second floor hallway, and walked out with it.
Ryan Westbrook, an employee for Ecko's Complex magazine, tells the New York Daily News, "He took it into the bathroom and broke the glass, rolled it up in a tube and left. He must have known the place, or at least cased it out."
And Ecko is desperate for the return of the art. Westbrook adds, "It's like diamonds, the value is tremendous. I hope they get it back, for Mark's sake."
The thief, who had a moustache and wore a cap and sunglasses to mask his face, was caught on an elevator camera, but he has yet to be identified.
Police have launched an investigation into the crime and are appealing for any information about the heist.
The KAWS painting, which measured five feet by four feet (1.52 by 1.22 metres), was part of Ecko's private collection.
“Our human spirits are immortal... I have matched my human spirit agains their emptiness, and I have won!” - Marnie
Tonight on True Blood, Antonia decided to let the sunshine in. Which is great- I was expecting them to drag the “meet the sun” plot out until the season finale. Three cheers for well-paced plotting! It makes sense that in the face of certainish death, our vampires would choose to stay close to those they love. Bill and Jessica hunker down for some sweet maker bonding before chaining themselves up in the basement (which sounds WAY dirtier than I meant, sorry.) Sookie and Eric do the same, endulging in another one of those sappy conversations assembled entirely from Livejournal icons.
Unfortunately, Tara isn’t feeling the love, as she must soldier on without her new girlfriend. She teams up with Marnie/Antonia, who may be a better replacement for “vampire hunting”, but not the “hotness” category which is so vital in a relationship. Tara seems to be falling for Mantonia’s female empowerment/wanton murder spiel, helping her assemble a crack team of idiots to power her spell circle. Tara says that vampires have killed every person that she’s loved, but to be honest readers, I’m drawing a blank. Jason and Sam are both (relatively) fine. Her only boyfriend who died (that I remember) is Eggs, and he got shot by Jason, not the undead. Undoubtedly, her relationship with Franklin was disturbing and awful, but I don’t remember him going after anyone but her. Is there someone obvious I’m forgetting? Or is Tara being a tad melodramatic?
Ep. 43 - Recap
“We’re seriously having this conversation? Now?” - Alcide
To be fair, it was a melodramatic episode on all counts, with all of the vampires chaining themselves up in the basement and crying and stuff. The newly-cuddly Eric is enjoyable, but his dialogue is getting embarrassingly sappy. Maybe for next week, I’ll compile a list of his quotes and mix them in with some of Edward’s from Twilight, and we’ll see who can tell them apart. But he also gets the funniest moment of the episode, having sex with Sookie all the way to the door of their house. Odds are there are some very confused boy scouts out in the woods getting a “birds and the vampire bees” talk. Maybe a “birds and mosquitos” talk. Who knows what wanton damage their love life will cause?
For instance, Eric and Sookie’s sexcapades puts a dent in Alcide and Debbie’s still-fragile relationship. After their werewolf bar-mitzvah, they go back into the conveniently small woods to make sure that Sookie isn’t getting murdered. Instead, they stumble into her glowey sex scene, which leads to some performance anxiety later on. It’s okay, Alcide, not everyone can have soft-focus sex scenes with a Neko Case-soundtrack. You’ve just got to make due.
“I wish I could forget every fucking thing about you.” - Sam. Also, the audience.
Sam gets an unpleasant surprise when his advances towards Luna are rebuffed, on account of Tommy’s shapeshifting sexytimes. Fortunately, the crack team figures it out, and while Luna runs off to take a whole lot of showers, Sam heads back to beat up Tommy. Tommy claims that the shapeshifting was an accident, which it was, but it’s not like his penis accidentally fell into Luna’s vagina.
Lafayette and Jesus finally left the brujo grampa behind, but not before establishing that Lafayette’s a medium- a witch who can speak to, and channel, spirits of the dead. Including the ghost lady who’s been following Arlene’s kid around, singing to him in french, and generally being disturbing.
“I am going to eat that fucking witch, starting with her face.” - Jessica
Ep. 44 - Preview
Despite Lala’s witchy prowess, he doesn’t get involved in Mantonia’s kind of crazy vampire murder plan. I have to assume that Tara, and the other people involved in the circle, don’t know exactly what’s going on, since they seem fairly cavalier about the whole thing. And Marnie’s speech, while dramatic, was vague on specifics. Tara’s been a bit of a jerk this season (for warranted reasons, sure), but it’s hard to imagine that she’d actually try to murder Jessica, and even Bill, in cold blood. I get that she’s afraid of Pam, but at this point, couldn’t Sookie ask Eric to order her not to kill Tara? I don’t know if Pam would listen, but Pam is honestly not the most intimidating vampire right now. She has no skin! Kudos to the makeup department for that incredibly cringe-worthy scene.
And it is Jessica who ends up in the most danger from Mantonia’s spell. Well, Jessica and that one vampire with the curlers who Hoyt’s mom knows. She has a sweet conversation with Bill, where she thanks him for being a good vampire dad, but he goes easy on her with the silver, out of sympathy. It ends up costing him, as Jessica breaks free, kills Bucky (not Bucky!) and walks out into the sun. Jason’s currently running to her rescue, and Bill spent something like half an hour in the sun that one time in the first season without any long-term damage, so I’m not too worried. I think for the first time, Russell Edgington might actually be happy that he’s trapped in concrete underground.
Looks like next week we’ll finally be getting that shower scene everyone’s been talking about.
“Holy crap, now there’s zombies?”
Sookie spends most of the episode in a sheer white shirt and a very pink bra. Someone call the fashion police!
“I’m going to shove my fist up your cunt and wear you like a hand warmer.”
“I swear to God I will burn this fucking taco stand to the ground!” You can’t blame Lafayette for being pissy, he still doesn’t speak Spanish, and must have no idea what’s going on half the time.
Good callback to the last time Eric got silvered, in season 2.
This week’s Eggs Benedict Memorial Award For The Biggest Waste Of Screen-Time goes to Andy’s date with Holly, which ended quickly and accomplished nothing. We get it, Andy’s addicted to V. Either come up with a better plot, or let poor Chris Bauer go. The man was on The Wire, for chrissake.
The new British royal has fast become a fashion icon for her stunning wardrobe choices and has been widely praised for mixing and matching her pieces to wear on more than one occasion.
But rock offspring Osbourne, a regular commentator on U.S. show E!'s Fashion Police, is not a fan of the princess' "thrifty" ways.
She says, "In England they're like, 'Look how thrifty she's being, showing the British public that the royals are in a recession as well. Only in this country (America) they call it a faux pas.
"I'm sorry, but if I had that job I would only wear it once. If I am going to be the future b**ody Queen of England I'm going to wear that dress once because I'm giving up the rest of my life, all of my privacy. At least I can get a new dress every day!"
Osbourne hit the headlines earlier this week (beg01Aug11) after she poked fun at longtime nemesis Christina Aguilera over her fashion choices, calling the singer a "fat b**ch".
Somebody hit the mute button on Kelly Osbourne because she's lashing out at everyone -- even royalty. Osbourne just got done calling Christina Aguilera a "fat bitch" and now she's digging her fashion claws into the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. During her Wednesday night appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, the outspoken Brit slammed the Duchess for frequently recycling her wardrobe.
The Fashion Police star told Jay, "In England they're like, 'Look how thrifty she's being, showing the British public that the Royals are in a recession as well...only in this country they call it a faux pas." Kelly goes on to explain that Kate shouldn't have to repeat outfits anymore, given her transformation into royalty stating, "I'm sorry, but if I had that job I would only wear it once...if I am going to be the future bloody Queen of England I'm going to wear that dress once because I'm giving up the rest of my life, all of my privacy. At least I can get a new dress every day!" Well at least she's clear about what royalty is all about...a never ending supply of clothes.
In an attempt to lighten the mood, Leno jokes around asking, "How about underpants? Would you throw them away?" Osbourne replied saying, "Well, if I could, I would. That's a really good idea, actually." Well someone certainly seems to have their panties in a twist, that's for sure. Now someone remove the stick that's shoved up her rear, so we can get back to making our own harsh judgments of the celebrity world.
