  • The Most Ridiculous Things 'Real Housewives' Star Kim Richards Said During Her Dr. Phil Interview

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 4 days ago

    "Have you been delaying this for some reason?" Dr. Phil asked, obviously already very displeased. A seemingly stunned Kim replied, "I've been ready since 10 o'clock this morning." While it wasn't clear what time it was when she actually showed up, it's safe to say it wasn't that close to 10 o'clock.

    But that was just the first of a long and distinguished list of ridiculous things the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said during her hour-long chat with the doctor. From stories with gaping holes to blatantly contradicting herself, the mother of four struggled with rational thought from beginning to end — though, it's worth noting, she was definitely sober.

    Her Version of What Went Down the Night of Arrest

    According to Kim, it all started when she went to see her youngest daughter. The visit took a turn, however, when her daughter went to class and Kim decided to use the free time to catch up on the Real Housewives episodes that she hadn't yet seen.

    It was clear that Dr. Phil wasn't buying her version of events and repeatedly asked her if she drank at the hotel — and she repeatedly denied it.

  • Kim Kardashian: As Long as Bruce Jenner Is Happy, I'm Happy

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 6 days ago

    During his interview with Diane Sawyer on Friday, Bruce Jenner said that — thanks to some wise words from Kanye West — Kim Kardashian has been the "most accepting" member of his family. On Monday, the 34-year-old sat down with Matt Lauer on the Today show to share her thoughts and lend some concrete support to the man she calls Dad.

    "I'm really happy for him that he is living his life the way he wants to live it," she began. "And that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness. That's what life is about."

    See Bruce talk about telling his family:


    She is not the only one who has the former Olympian's back. On Monday, Bruce's four oldest children appeared on Good Morning America to speak out on their father's behalf, and their support came with some acknowledgment that their father had, in the past, let them down.

  • 13 Things We Learned From Bruce Jenner's Diane Sawyer Interview, Plus One Thing We Already Kinda Knew

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 8 days ago

    Sawyer met with Jenner at his California home. The former Olympian was nervous and emotional at first, stopping for tissues just a few minutes into their chat. But as soon as he began to really open up, the nerves melted away and Jenner hit his stride. The result was a special that showed the audience that just because a man has been on a hit reality TV show for eight years doesn't mean we know much about him at all. So, what did this two hours of television teach us that 500-plus episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians didn't?

    1. He considers himself a woman.

    Asked if he considered himself a woman, Jenner didn't miss a beat. "Yes, for all intents and purposes, I am a woman," he began. "People look at me differently. They see me as a macho male, but my heart and my soul and everything that I do in life — it is part of me, that female side is part of me, that's who I am. I was genetically born that way."

    2. He isn't gay (as far as he knows).

    3. He considered suicide.

    4. He started taking hormones in the 1980s, but stopped after meeting Kris Jenner.

    6. Kim, Kylie, and Kendall all caught him dressed as a woman at one point.



  • Dr. Oz Tells Critics: 'Public Shaming and Bullying Me Is Not How It Should Be Done'

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 9 days ago

    On Thursday, Dr. Oz used his show to take aim at the doctors who have called for his removal from the Columbia University faculty. As pictures of eight of the 10 MDs appeared on screen (two boxes featured question marks in place of images), the TV star/cardiac surgeon showed that he believes the best defense is a good offense.

    "The 10 doctors who attacked me got what they intended: sensational headlines and sound bytes. I've long believed that doctors should never fight their battles, or each other, in public — but now I believe, I must," he lamented before adding, "They went as far as to call me a quack."

    The host revealed that he hired investigative reporter, Elisabeth Leamy, to help him "learn who these doctors really are." With a solemn expression, he continued, "She uncovered some surprising hidden connections. Now it is ironic that I'm being accused of a conflict of interest by these doctors, when, as you're about to see, some of them have their own conflict of interest issues, and some integrity ones also."

    "Who should you believe?" the female voice asked viewers. "You be the judge."


  • What Really Happens When You Hang Out With Andy Cohen at 'Watch What Happens Live'

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 11 days ago

    At most TV tapings, you're met by a production assistant wielding a clipboard who directs you to stand in a very long line. At Watch What Happens Live, you're met by an associate producer behind a fully stocked bar who just can't wait to make you a drink. (For full disclosure, it's not actually a proper bar, but more of a welcome desk piled with liquor handles and soda cans. Still, it gets the job done.) Audience members are encouraged to mingle amongst themselves. "You all came with someone, but you might leave with someone else!" the bartender/associate producer chimed as Chrissy Teigen walked by in search of the (public) restroom down the hall and all of the straight men died tried not to stare.

    From the beginning, one of the markers that has set Watch What Happens Live apart from its predecessors has been the free-flowing alcohol for both host and guests (and, as was mentioned earlier, the audience).


  • Nick Loeb Suing Sofia Vergara Over Their Frozen Embryos

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 17 days ago

    Nick Loeb and Sofia Vergara called it quits a year ago, but part of their relationship remains frozen in time. In November 2013, the then-engaged pair opted to cryopreserve a handful of embryos in hopes of having children together someday. Even though their relationship is over, two female embryos are still intact.

    It's a sticky situation in the best of circumstances, but making it stickier still is the fact that the former lovers do not seem to be on the same page in terms of what to do with their embryos. Now Loeb is taking legal action to fight for the outcome he wants, which is to keep the embryos intact.

    The documents, acquired by The Insider With Yahoo , go on to reiterate Loeb's strong feelings about the situation.

    Part of Nick's argument is rooted in a disagreement he claims they had at their fertility clinic in 2013, when they were between their first and second rounds of IVF. According to his account, he and the 42-year-old actress clashed over what to do with their fertilized embryos in the event of death.

  • Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne Can't Stop Talking About 'Fashion Police' Drama

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 23 days ago

    There's a saying that time heals all wounds, but maybe Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne didn't get that memo. Ever since Rancic made that infamous comment about Zendaya's hairstyle at the Oscars six weeks ago, the two Fashion Police stars have been at each other's throats. Osbourne has already formally left the show and Rancic's future on the panel remains uncertain at best, yet both women seem hell bent on winning this feud, which doesn't show any signs of letting up anytime soon.

    On Monday, Giuliana stopped by the Today show, where she vowed to "tell the truth" about her controversial joke. Her version of the story hangs on the claim that poor editing after the taping changed the nature of what she said so that the (kinder, more playful) spirit of the jab was lost.

    Osbourne promptly tweeted:

    Liars ALWAYS get caught!

    We couldn't agree more, so hopefully these two… umm… "ladies" will start following their own advice.

  • Melissa Rivers Reveals What It Was Really Like Having Her Mother as a 'Tenant'

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 24 days ago

    Loving your mother is one thing, but living with her is quite another. For Joan Rivers and her daughter, Melissa, however, it seemed that cohabitation only strengthened their bond.

    A letter Melissa Rivers penned to her mother before Joan's untimely death last September now appears in Lisa Erspamer's new book, A Letter to My Mom , and it offers a delightful glimpse into the love and laughter that permeated the two comediennes' everyday life.

    "Dear Mom, I received the note that you slipped under my bedroom door last night. I was very excited to read it, thinking that it would contain amazing, loving advice that you wanted to share with me," Melissa begins in the note obtained by People. "Imagine my surprise when I opened it and saw that it began with the salutation, 'Dear Landlord.'"

    She then moves on to addressing the comedy legend's list of lamentations about her living situation.

    Between her humorous grievances about her mother's missteps, Melissa lets her adoration for Joan shine through.

  • Zach Braff and Donald Faison Vow to Provide Pizza for Indiana Gay Weddings

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 25 days ago

    The rights of gay couples in Indiana may be in jeopardy, but their ability to enjoy pizza at their weddings is not. Access to the perennially popular fare has been promised to gay couples throughout the great state by a rather unlikely source: two Hollywood actors. BFFs and Scrubs co-stars Zach Braff and Donald Faison have declared their commitment to making sure same-sex couples tying the knot can enjoy buttery garlic knots on their big day.

    If you really and truly want pizza for your gay wedding in Indiana... We will make it for you. @donald_faison

    The tweet clearly struck a chord and has since been retweeted more than 8,000 times.

    Naturally, many fear this is setting a precedent that will allow establishments to refuse to serve gay people — pretty much exactly like the owners of Memories Pizza have done. And it already appears that battle lines over this new legislation are being drawn.

    Still, no response has topped Braff and Faison's bromance-filled message of commitment to the gay community. Now all we need is a happy couple to take them up on their generous offer!

  • Giuliana Rancic's 'Fashion Police' Future Remains Uncertain

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 26 days ago

    Asked by Savannah Guthrie on the Today show Monday morning about whether she'll return to Fashion Police , Giuliana simply said, "We'll see." That sounds pretty noncommittal to us, though we understand Rancic being a little gun shy after the uproar over her controversial joke — especially if it really went down the way she claims and shoddy editing was to blame.

    "I made a reference to the hippie culture. I talked about patchouli oil, which is a hippie perfume. And in the editing process, some of the gestures I made, some of the things I said were taken out for time," she explained. "I made peace signs, I said 'bohemian' twice — those were taken out for time, so when the joke aired, some people were offended by it."

    The mother of one went on to admit that when she saw how the clip appeared, she understood the outrage.
