This past week on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, embattled “housewife” Erika Jayne tried to explain the deposit of $20 million into the bank account of EJ Global, an LLC in her name, as something she did not know about because she wasn’t allowed to look at the books … again in an LLC in her name.
Trouble is, lawyers for the trustee overseeing the Girardi Keese bankruptcy found that Erika Jaynes “company” spent more than $25,000,000 on her American Express bill, a team of assistants and a glam squad. The lawyers ALLEGE that money was transferred from her estranged husband Tom Girardi’s law firm into Jayne’s company and notes that she is the sole owner of the company. Jayne’s lawyers say that “no money whatsoever went to Erika” and that she never had a role in managing her husband’s company.
But, Erika, honey, lying honey, you said you never saw the books, and had no idea the $20 million was out in there, so how did you know you could pay $25 million in expenses. I mean, if you made that much money as a singer, you’d have left your “terrible” husband years ago.
It looks like another celebrity has defected from the Cult of Scientology as we now know that Laura Prepon, formerly one of Scientology’s most visible celebrities, has announced in a People magazine article that she no longer belongs to L. Ron Hubbard’s little cult. Laura had been a Scientologist since the That 70s Show days, on which she starred alongside noted Scientologist, and accused rapist, Danny Masterson, and dated his Scientologist brother Christopher for eight years.
But all that changed three years ago when she met and married Ben Foster and became the mother of two. Though many people assumed that when she and Ben met he was also in the Cult, and signed his own billion-year contract and converted from Judaism, Laura now says she hasn’t practiced Scientology in five years and that when she married Ben she was officially out of Co$:
“I’m no longer practicing Scientology. I’ve always been very open-minded, even since I was a child. I was raised Catholic and Jewish. I’ve prayed in churches, meditated in temples. I’ve studied Chinese meridian theory. I haven’t practiced Scientology in close to five years and it’s no longer part of my life.”
Good for Laura for waking up, but, if I were here, I’d keep an eye out for Kirstie Alley, who may come lumbering up behind her, or for John Travolta, who may stop smooching his pilot long enough to bash her, or Tom Cruise, who is probably throwing a hissy fit right now, because with Laura out of the Cult, who will get things of the high shelves for him?
Country singer Carrie Underwood does not get political, though it’s assumed she’s a big old Republican, but now it seems she is also an anti-masking fool as well.
See, Carrie recently “liked” an anti-mask Tweet by Matt Walsh, a conservative commentator who writes on topics ranging from “Modern Feminism’s Assault On Womanhood and It’s Your Fault If You’re Offended to Why White Privilege Is A Ridiculous Myth and Why Transgenderism Is A Ridiculous Myth.”
At a recent Nashville School Board meeting, Matt shrieked that COVID-19 posed “almost no threat to our kids at all” [note: the Delta Variant has infected many children] and called masking children “child abuse.” And Carrie saw that and was like, “Yeah, me too,” and hit the like button.
But the best part about this, and had Carrie Underwood even bothered to check, she’d have found that Matt Walsh had no business at a school board meeting because he homeschools his children … and they don’t wear masks,
Oh Carrie. Let Jesus take the wheel.
I guess if you’re gonna cheat on your spouse, go all out and really cheat.
Amirite, Amber Rose? This week Amber Rose took to her Instagram Stories to accuse Alexander “AE” Edwards, her boyfriend, and father of her youngest son, of cheating on her with at least twelve other women.
Talk about your dirty dozen. The best part though is that AE went on Instagram Live's The Neighborhood Talk and admitted that he’s an NBC … Natural Born Cheater. AE also admits that, while he “might” stop putting his dick into any hole that comes his way for “a good, solid six months, and deprive myself from my true nature as long as I could take it,” he doesn’t want to live like that.
Gosh, AE makes Khloe Kardastrophe’s cheating ex, Tristan Thompson, look like a choir boy. Amirite, Amber?
Over the weekend Barbra Streisand appeared on an Australian talk show and dragged the Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper adaptation of A Star is Born. Barbra starred in the 1976 version, which was based on the iconic 1954 Judy Garland version, which was based on the original 1937 film starring Janet Gaynor.
Barbra, who visited the set and was photographed with Gaga, and gave the film a rave review when it was released, now says the 2018 version was “the wrong idea” and should have been more original, like her version … the third version … of the story.
Barbra says that when she starred in A Star Is Born she wanted it to be different than the other versions … unlike the original about an actress, or Judy’s about a musical movie star or Gaga’s about a rock-and-pop star, Babs played a “guitar-playing singer-songwriter” in her reboot. Yes, it was oh so very different. Barbra also now says she would have preferred an earlier proposal of the 2018 film that would have starred “integrated actors” like Will Smith and Beyoncé … so it would have been an R & B star?
“At first, when I heard it was going to be done again, it was supposed to be Will Smith and Beyoncé, and I thought, that’s interesting. Really make it different again, different kind of music, integrated actors, I thought that was a great idea. So, I was surprised when I saw how alike [the 2018 film] was to the version that I did in 1976.”
And then, as the knife pricks the skin, Babs jams it in farther saying:
“I don’t care so much about success as I do originality.”
Says the woman who made the third reboot of a film, but changed the lead from musical star to guitar playing star.
Damned if you honor Barbra, damned if you don’t.
