    Now: Ms. Michele, 27, does her acting in front of TV cameras for her Fox show, where her character won the starring role in a Broadway revival of Funny Girl and whose former love interest turned out to be an escort. In real life, Michele has revealed that she and Glee creator Ryan Murphy could really team up for Funny Girl in the future. In an interesting twist, the actress is also reportedly dating former escort Matthew Paetz, according to TMZ. This is her first relationship since the tragic death of her boyfriend and co-star, Cory Monteith, last July.

  • Mila on Ashton: 'All of a Sudden, It Wasn't the Same'

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 1 yr ago

    From the outside, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher's transition from friendship into romance looked seamless. And it sounds like it really was!

    "One day, it just changed," Kunis tells Marie Claire in a new interview. "All of a sudden, it wasn't the same. And I was really proud of myself for acknowledging that. The best day of my life so far was the proposal. I cried. I was a mess. Not to discredit any relationships in my past, but this relationship is different."

  • Paul Walker's Mother Petitions to Become Granddaughter Meadow's Guardian

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 1 yr ago

    Paul Walker's mother wants to be the guardian of his daughter, Meadow.

    Cheryl Ann Walker filed a legal petition on Tuesday to be appointed custodian of her 15-year-old granddaughter, and also administer the $16 million-plus estate the teen inherited from the late "Fast & Furious" actor when he was killed in a car crash last November.

    According to the court documents obtained by Yahoo, both Meadow and her mother, Walker's ex-girlfriend Rebecca McBrain (also referenced as Soteros), live with Cheryl Ann.

    Cheryl Ann, a registered nurse, also claims that Rebecca "has a drinking problem."

    The 40-year-old actor's will revealed in February that he had listed his mother, Cheryl Ann, as Meadow's guardian. (The document, prepared in January 2001, also put the actor's net worth at $25 million. There is no immediate explanation for the discrepancy between that amount and the figure cited in his mother's filing.)


  • Spying, Public Disses, and Snubs: It's All Relative for the Judds

    1. The "bitter" truth comes out. Ashley revealed in her 2012 memoir, "All That Is Bitter and Sweet," that she had been sexually abused as a child and, even worse, that no one believed her when she tried to tell them. In addition, she was often left alone as her mom and sister were on the road. (Her parents divorced when she was still a toddler.) "There was too much trauma, abandonment, addiction and shame," the "Double Jeopardy" star wrote. "My mother, while she was transforming herself into the country legend Naomi Judd, created an origin myth for the Judds that did not match my reality. She and my sister have been quoted as saying that our family put the 'fun' in dysfunction. I wondered: Who, exactly, was having all the fun? What was I missing?" (Wynonna and Naomi confessed the very next week that they, too, had suffered sexual abuse as children.) 2. They diss each other in public. This has happened more than once. In January, when there was talk that Ashley might run for Congress, her mother told Piers Morgan that, "She is not as smart as she acts." Ouch! Winona once told the ladies on "The View" that she often called Ashley "The Third Judd" — you know, like the wheel! Isn't that sweet sisterly love?! At least Ashley's surely had the chance to tell her sister and mother about her frustrations in therapy, since they've spoken about going as a family and as individuals.

  • Erykah Badu Goes Glam

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 1 yr ago

     Erykah Badu's done something that's not at all controversial. The outspoken singer, known almost as much for her activism as for her music, appears in new adds for Givenchy's spring collection. Badu, 42, explained to her hometown newspaper, the Dallas Morning News, just why she agreed to work with the brand and its creative director Riccardo Tisci. "Riccardo's a fan of my style," Badu said of the man who memorably dressed Kim Kardashian in a much-maligned floral frock for the Met Gala back in April. "He told me he really wanted to work with me because he had a special campaign he designed for me. He sent me some of the photos, and I was super-honored; I didn't take it for granted. Fashion is my thing, and I am a big fan of Riccardo's — not just because of his amazing eye, but because of his spirit, what he wanted. He wants to give models of color an opportunity, and he chose me as the face for that campaign because he told me I fit what he wanted to represent"   In fact, the new collection is filled with Asian and African influences, with Erykah sporting tribal graphics and patterns. Her tresses, which were once regularly...

  • Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel Split

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 1 yr ago

    One of Hollywood's hottest couples has called it quits: Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel are no more.

    The "Best Man Holiday" actor's rep confirmed the surprising news in a brief statement to omg!:

    "Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time. Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time."

    Menzel, a Tony Award-winning singer-actress who appeared on "Glee" and whose pipes are currently on display as Elsa in Disney's "Frozen," and Diggs wed in January 2003 after meeting as co-stars in the original production of the Broadway musical "Rent" in 1996.

    Their son, Walker, is 4.

    "I was frustrated with him for doing it," she told People in April. "But his instinct came in — his child and wife were in the house — so afterward it was sexy to me."

    The marriage was the first for both.

  • Ashton Can't Help But Share His Love for Mila ... Finally!

  • Tila Tequila Gets People Talking Again … In a Bad Way

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 1 yr ago

    Perhaps Tila Tequila believes the old saying that "any publicity is good publicity." On Tuesday, the 32-year-old former reality star — remember her MTV show "A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila"? — became a trending topic on Twitter after a succession of weird blog posts appeared on her official website. She ranted about sympathizing with Adolf Hitler and posted a photo of herself wearing a Swastika arm band on her blog. That came just days after she'd posted about actor Paul Walker's death by car crash being a "ritualistic murder" and about 9/11 conspiracies. Since Tequila's show ended in 2008, she's had some really bad times — and press. In 2009, she accused her then-boyfriend, San Diego Chargers lineman Shawne Merriman, of choking her and throwing her down, which resulted in dueling lawsuits between the two that weren't settled until the following year. Officials declined to charge him. In 2010, her fiancée, heiress Casey Johnson, died suddenly at age 30, and last year, she went to rehab after an overdose on pills and a brain aneurysm. Of course, most folks on Twitter didn't respond to kindly to news that the pint-sized Tequila had resurfaced defending Hitler. Here are a few of their reactions:

  • Vegan Beyoncé's Animal Obsession

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 1 yr ago

    One week after taking the vegan challenge, how exactly is Beyoncé doing? Well, her food is very clean, according to Instagram photos of her meals and the restaurants that she's visited, but her wardrobe is a completely different matter. The "Love On Top" singer, 32, caught some heat on Twitter when, just two days after embarking on what Jay Z described as a 22-day "spiritual and physical cleanse," she stopped by an animal product-free restaurant, Native Foods, in L.A. wearing a camouflage jacket with what appeared to be fur around the collar. Now, Bey's shared snaps of herself wearing a giraffe hood and hooves. Was it a fashion statement? Just a way to make Blue Ivy laugh? (Although that doesn't explain her grabbing her breasts!) Or was it her way of responding to all the haters? More logically, it could simply be a photo shoot or just a way to express how badly she wants to eat meat and dairy.
