  • Did Susan Sarandon and Younger Boyfriend Split Over a Reality Show?

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 3 hrs ago

    The reality TV curse may have struck again.

    Susan Sarandon and boyfriend Jonathan Bricklin have hit a rough patch, according to reports. Page Six alleges that the 68-year-old actress broke things off with the SPiN New York co-founder, 37, following a disagreement over a reality show.

    No, they weren't fighting over whether or not Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna was too up in Kim Richards's business.

    The couple of five years both appear on AOL's Connected, which features "six personal stories, weaving together the lives and experiences of six New Yorkers in a format that merges the documentary, drama and reality genres."

    Maybe this is all just a good marketing strategy? The show launches on March 31.

  • Nikki Reed Takes Her Animal Activism to the Next Level

    Nikki Reed is heading to Washington! Or, at least, Sacramento.

    Dressed in a smart suit with her hair pulled back, the Twilight alum, 26, took a trip to the State Capitol in California this week to testify for Assembly Bill 147. Reed argued that " animals used for science should not be discarded," and that cats and dogs should be allowed to be adopted after they've been tested on.

    "The cruelty that they endure being used for research purposes is harsh enough," she shared on Instagram. "Let's not further the abuse by claiming that rescues are not equipped to help them live out the rest of their lives peacefully."

    Reed documented her trip on the social media site.

    " Standing in front of The Capitol before I testify with Emma, a survivor from a San Francisco testing facility. The holes in her ears are a testament to the horror she endured #AB147," she captioned the below snapshot.

    The actress testified with Assembly member Matt Dababneh, and between the two of them, they got the bill passed.

    We're guessing Nikki and Ian are going to have a lot of furry guests at their wedding.

  • Kristen Stewart Reveals Her Type

    What does it take to land Kristen Stewart?

    The new CR Fashion Book issue features the Chanel muse, who is fittingly photographed by Karl Lagerfeld. In it, Stewart, 24, talks about her type and what she finds attractive in a partner.

    “For me, the most attractive thing in a person is drive – genuine, impulse expressed for the sake of it, not for perception,” the Still Alice actress says. “I think that’s hot.”

    The need to create "is a compulsion and I share that," she continues. "I do not approach my life tactfully at all… I'm incredibly impulsive and I am definitely an intense weirdo. I love living and I love people. They trip me out and I want to know more about them all the time. That isn't something I can turn off and on."

    Considering she's a celebrity, Stewart has to choose the people she lets in her circle carefully (romantically and otherwise).

  • Patricia Arquette on Not Straightening Teeth: I Didn't Want to Look Perfect

    Following her big win, the Boyhood actress, 46, talked to People about the pressure Hollywood places on women.

    "I've had so many of these conversations in my life... what I look like on film, what I don't look like on film. What are we supposed to look like? Men are not having these conversations," Arquette told the mag. "It's like we're trapped in wet wool or something. I just want to be free of it so we can move to the next level as equals."

    She continued, "Not that I don't love being a woman, not that I don't love the differences between men and women. I just mean, as an actor – why is this a conversation? Why is aging a conversation? It's a one-sided conversation because it's only ever had by women."

    One physical attribute of Arquette's she says was scrutinized at a young age were her teeth. Patricia, who falls in the middle of siblings Rosanna and David Arquette, said she told her parents she didn't want braces or her teeth straightened because "it didn't feel like it would fit who I was inside."

  • Bobbi Kristina Turns 22 'Fighting the Battle of Her Life'

    Bobbi Kristina, the only daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, turned 22 today and remains in a medically induced coma. It has been over a month since she was found unresponsive in a bathtub.

    "Today is Bobbi Kristina's 22nd birthday and we ask you to continue to keep her in your prayers as she is still fighting the battle of her life," Patricia Houston, president of Whitney Houston's estate, wrote in a statement alongside the above photo.

    A criminal investigation has been opened, and according to reports, police have had a lot of questions for Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend Nick Gordon. His cooperation has been inconsistent.

    Gordon, who has been at odds with Bobby Brown over visitation, posted a birthday message on Twitter.

    Happy Birthday baby I wish I was there with you to hold you and be by your side

  • Christie Brinkley Defends Cindy Crawford After 'Leaked' Body Pic

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    Christie Brinkley stopped by The Dr. Oz Show this week and addressed the "leaked" natural photo of Cindy Crawford that recently blew up Twitter.

    "I have to say something about this picture," Brinkley began. "I just shared a dressing room with Cindy Crawford, at most, it was a year ago. She was perfect ... I know that she takes really good care of herself… We're in the dressing room and I turned around to grab something and Cindy is stark naked stepping into something. She looked perfect. It was kind of annoying."

    Brinkley, 61, continued, "I was very inspired and went home and did my exercises. I honestly don't know if that picture is for real. I know there's people that would like to believe it, but I'm telling you with my own eyes, she was perfect."

    While Crawford didn't comment about the photo, her photographer spoke out yesterday, calling the image " a fraudulent, altered version of my photograph" and threatening legal action to anyone who put up the fake photo.

  • Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina Will Not Be Featured on Family Reality Show

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    TMZ reported Wednesday that, " Bobby's 2 sisters, brother and their kids are shooting the show about their lives, and part of it will chronicle Bobbi Kristina fighting for her life."

    But in a statement to The Insider With Yahoo , Brown's lawyer balsted the "irresponsible" report: "Yet again, TMZ has chosen to engage in false news reporting. There is no Brown family reality show that is in production which chronicles Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina or the medical emergency she presently faces at Emory Hospital. These reports are irresponsible and Warner Brothers as the owner of TMZ, should be ashamed to publish such nonsense, particularly one day before Bobbi Kristina's birthday. Bobbi Kristina and Bobby Brown are dealing with enough right now. The fact that TMZ/Warner Brothers has decided to inject negativity into their lives at this critical time is plain insanity."

    Bobbi Kristina remains on life support after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub on Jan. 31.

    Bobbi Kristina, the only daughter of Whitney Houston, turns 22 tomorrow.

    Taylor Swift will not talk about Katy Perry, but she has no problem praising another one of her peers.

    The "Style" singer took to Twitter over the weekend to gush about Lady Gaga, and, clearly, the feelings are mutual.

    Is it just me or is Lady Gaga, like, fully LIVING right now?!? #goals

    Perhaps Swift, 25, caught wind of the adorable photos of Lady Gaga, 28, taking the polar plunge in Chicago with new fiancé Taylor Kinney. The "Applause" crooner was directed to the message and replied on Monday.

    @taylorswift13 wow you're a sweetheart! Life is friends, family, and love! We all see that in you, your prince charming will come! ❤️💋

    The Imitation Game star, 38, and Sophie Hunter are on a 10-day honeymoon in Tahiti, according to E! News. The newlyweds are staying at a five-star resort in Bora Bora.

    "Benedict looked so excited to be there and was snapping pictures with his camera," an eyewitness says. "They were given pineapple-infused water and beautiful flower leis that they immediately put around their necks and smelled the fresh flowers."

    The Sherlock star and his pregnant wife, 36, are staying in a water bungalow which they have "rarely" left (naturally).

    The Cumberbatches also reportedly enjoyed massages in their room when it rained.
