Sylvester Stallone worries reality show will be embarrassing

Stallone reality TV worries

Sylvester Stallone worried his reality show would be embarrassing "every day" during filming.

The 'Rocky' star has thrown open the doors of his home to TV cameras so fans can see what life is like for him, wife Jennifer Flavin and their daughters Sophia, 26, Sistine, 24, and 20-year-old Scarlet, and though he had reservations about the project, he overcame them by setting some boundaries because he wanted to do the show for his kids "to explore their lives".

He admitted: “I’d think, ‘Why do I need to do this c***, seriously?' So you had to set parameters. No one’s coming into the bathroom and watching you brush your teeth...

“I want to get real with my daughters. I actually want to have footage of that."

The 76-year-old actor admitted the series is "uncharted waters" but he wanted to show fans his "human" side.

Speaking to ET Canada for their 'One-on-One' special, he said: “Growing up, I would love to have seen stars stars like Brando at home making eggs and goofing around. That’s interesting.

“They’re actually human. They don’t walk around with sunglasses and people putting makeup on all day and learning lines. They really do silly, repetitive, goofy things that we all do in life. That kind of thing.”

And Stallone praised 'The Osbournes' for showing viewers total honesty.

He said: “I think the first one that really hit it right was Ozzy Osbourne. He just didn’t care. ‘My dog craps on the floor, I’m not some superstar’.”

Meanwhile, the 'Expendables' actor shared some details about his morning routine, which involves some quiet time to exercise.

He said: “I think everyone should afford themselves an hour in the morning before the madness starts.

"I’ll start off with stretching and then I’ll go and do a few odd exercises that you normally don’t work out, like lower back and forearms. Something that’s not too strenuous, but it’s a unique muscle that no one ever works on.”



'I'm an actual cowgirl': Kendall Jenner moving to ranch with horses

Kendall goes cowgirl

Kendall Jenner is moving to a ranch after revealing her horse is having a baby via surrogate.

The 818 Tequila founder is planning to relocate so there is enough space for her and her horses.

Speaking on the finale episode of 'The Kardashians' season two, she said of her future plans: "I have a lot of ideas and a lot of things I would love to do in life, so I'm excited to continue to explore all these things, but … I'm moving to a ranch."

A producer told her: "You're going to end up with horses somewhere," to which she quipped: "I am an actual cowgirl."

On a previous episode, the reality star found out her horse was set to welcome a foal.

She shouted out while having glam: "Oh my gosh! I'm having a baby… horse."

She told her beauty team: "I just got the news ...

"We have an embryo, remember I asked you for sperm? Jen was like, 'I really want to get something great for Kendall for her birthday,' and I was like, 'Sperm. Horse sperm.'"

The baby horse's dad is an Olympian just like Kendall's dad Caitlyn Jenner - who was Bruce Jenner before transitioning.

In a confessional, she explained: "We're doing it via surrogacy, it's really interesting. So you buy sperm, like you find a stud, like mine was an Olympian."

Meanwhile, Kendall has just split from Devin Booker for the second time.

The 27-year-old model has been in an on/off relationship with the 26-year-old NBA player since 2021, and although the pair are said to have "quietly" split for a second time in October, a source close to 'The Kardashians' star has alleged that their breakup was merely a result of scheduling issues.

The insider told E! News: "Their schedules weren't lining u and eventually the relationship really took its course. There's no bad blood. It wasn't an awful breakup."

The insider went on to claim that Kendall is in "great spirits" since calling it quits with Devin and is focusing on taking her company to the "next level" so is not interested in finding someone new.

The source added: "Kendall is in great spirits since the split. She's been really busy and is trying to take her company to the next level, and is really focused on work. She's not really open to dating right now."

The apparent split comes months after Kendall and Devon first split, with Page Six reporting in June they were on “different pages” about their relationship.

Not long after news broke they had ended their two-year relationship, the pair were photographed together at Soho House in Malibu.

Jessie J reflects on one-year since devastating miscarriage

Jessie J 'still hurting'

Jessie J "still hurts" a year after suffering a miscarriage.

The 34-year-old singer revealed last year she had lost a baby and she has reflected on the positives she has taken in the 12 months since the tragedy, while praising those who have experienced multiple losses.

She wrote on her Instagram Story: "A year ago today I was told my baby no longer had a heartbeat.

"Although I can tell the story now without crying, have and still am discovering all the positives that experience gave me.

"Strength. Wisdom. Empathy. Gratitude.

"It still hurts and all day I have just been thinking about all the women and men and families who have been through this numerous times and how incredibly strong they are.

"Time helps but it never truly fades."

The 'Price Tag' hitmaker then shared her support for others coming to terms with a miscarriage.

She wrote: "Sending love and strength to anyone's heart that has or is experiencing this right now."

She completed her post - which was soundtracked by her own song 'Four Letter Word' - with a message direct to her child.

She added: "And to my little angel baby. I feel you everywhere. Especially today."

Jessie previously explained she shared details of her miscarriage online shortly before a gig in Los Angeles because she felt so alone.

She said: "I posted it because I didn't have anyone to break on ... I didn't have anyone to fall apart on, and that's what I needed, that's what I wanted.

"I was by myself, I had no one advising me, my mum and my sister weren’t there to go, 'No, don’t share this with the world, make it real for you first'.

"The hardest part for me wasn’t doing the show, the show was actually kind of a weird trippy dream, and I was actually grateful that I wasn’t by myself, and loads of people that I loved turned up."



Kate Hudson finds shooting sex scenes 'mechanical'

Sex scenes 'mechanical'

Kate Hudson finds filming sex scenes "mechanical" but admitted they can "get awkward."

The 'Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery' actress admitted shooting intimate moments with another actor can be "enjoyable," but it's largely a technical process so there isn't much "fun" involved.

Appearing on 'The Jonathan Ross Show', fellow guest Stormzy asked her: "When I see sex scenes I'm like, 'How do you lot do that?' Of course it's your job but… as your average punter, it looks extremely difficult. Can there be… arousal… everyone's thought it!"

Kate laughingly replied: "Interesting question. I think it's so mechanical and there's so many people around.

"Usually they close the set and you kind of have to talk it out and the boys wear belts. It's very… tucked.

"It kind of takes the fun out of it, I guess. Sometimes it's more enjoyable than other times. It just depends on the circumstance and the safety that you feel with that actor and how safe the space feels. It can get awkward."

The 43-year-old actress has made a number of romantic comedies with Matthew McConaughey over the years and though she loves working with the actor, they didn't have a great experience shooting 2008's 'Fool's Gold'.

She said: "That was definitely not that fun to shoot.

"Ocean, swimming and kissing is not always pleasant. Things happen in the ocean, like yuckiness… we're like treading water trying to stay above water.

"Matthew and I have had very romantic kisses and then we've had very non-romantic kisses. So a sequel would really bring some interesting things.'

"I like how real Matthew is… we have a little bit of a fighting spirit with each other, we know how to push each other's buttons.

"We work hard, play hard. To me, Matthew's such an original and so authentically who you think he is, is who he is."

And she revealed the pair would be open to a sequel to their classic romcom 'How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days'.

She said: "We both have the same feeling about it; if for some reason a great idea came across our desk and it read well, yeah I would totally revisit it.

"I love working with Matthew. I don't know… I'm sure it would start with marital conflict. Or maybe… I have no idea. 'How To Lose A Husband in 20 Years'?"



Cuba Gooding Jr insists he's '100 percent changed'

Gooding says he's changed

Cuba Gooding Jr has "100 percent changed" since pleading guilty to one-count of forcible touching.

The 54-year-old actor previously admitted to touching a woman at a New York nightclub in 2018, and Cuba insists he's now "ten times more aware of what is going on around [him]."

The Hollywood star - who agreed to attend counselling for six months as part of his plea deal - explained: "It's funny too because I don't want this to stop me connecting with my fans.

"I don't want this to stop me connecting with the gregarious behaviour in terms of the positive energy that I have.

"I'm ten times more aware of what is going on around me and I just use that as my focus."

The acclaimed actor was originally accused of violating three different women in New York City in 2018 and 2019. However, he only pleaded guilty to one of the allegations and insists he "didn't mean to to disrespect anyone."

Cuba told 'Piers Morgan Uncensored': "You have to live in your truth, and I know in my truth, I didn't mean to to disrespect anyone."

The 'Jerry Maguire' star also revealed that he's received strong support from the public over recent months.

He shared: "There's video footage of the interactions with these women that showed the truth of what happened. And it's funny, so I had so many people come up to me in the street and say, 'I support you, I saw the video'... but the one thing that I found that really hit me, and I said, 'Okay now it's time for me to mention this, to talk about it.'

"Basically, I started this career loved, and people were all like, Oh his energy!' Nothing's changed with me!"



Weird Al Yankovic refused permission for Harry Potter parody

No Potter parody for Al

Weird Al Yankovic claims Warner Bros. refused to let him parody the 'Harry Potter' theme.

The 63-year-old musician - who is played by Daniel Radcliffe, the titular star in the wizarding series, in his new biopic 'Weird: The Al Yankovic Story' - has offered his own twist on songs including the 'Star Wars' theme and 'Gangsta's Paradise' from 'Dangerous Minds' in the past, but when he asked permission to rework 'Hedwig's Theme', the idea was quickly shut down.

He said: “Whenever it was, about a decade or two ago, I approached the movie company just to get a general blessing like, ‘Hey, I’d like to do a Harry Potter parody.’ And I think they said no, or they never responded or whatever.

“But sometimes when you’re dealing with franchises, and you ask permission, you know, there’s so many people that can say no, and they usually do.” 

Al joked the snub had taught him a lesson for future parodies.

He said: “If I’m doing a franchise, it’s usually better just to do it and ask for forgiveness rather than permission,” he explained.

But the 'Gump' singer is still a fan of the 'Harry Potter' series and joked 'Weird: The Al Yankovic Story' is his favourite movie in the saga.

He quipped: "We like to think that that’s the last movie of the Harry Potter franchise."

And actor Daniel joked the whole movie could be viewed as the parody Al never got to record.

He said: "Maybe that’s what this film is. This has been his way of doing a 'Harry Potter' parody.”



Denise Richards feels 'grateful to be safe' after truck shot at

'Grateful to be safe'

Denise Richards is "grateful to be safe" after her truck was shot at last week.

The 51-year-old actress and her husband Aaron Phypers were travelling in their truck in Los Angeles on Nov. 14 when a fellow motorist allegedly opened fire at their vehicle, and on Thursday, the 'Wild Things' star thanked her fans for their "love and support" in the wake of the scary incident.

She shared a message on Instagram which read: "I want to give my sincerest thanks to all who have reached out to me and Aaron during this time. We are both very grateful to be safe. The love and support from all of you has been overwhelming!! We are so thankful for each and every one of you."

It was previously explained Aaron was driving Denise to work at Popsicle Studio when a gold and maroon van began following their Ford F-150 pickup.

A source said: [Aaron] could tell — he kept making rights because they were clearly being followed. The guy was obviously p***** behind him."

"The van was on his tail, pushing him almost... they couldn't figure it out."

The van eventually pulled up to their left and Aaron wound down his window to confront their driver, with the man arguing he had cut him off.

Aaron apologised and drove off, but when the couple arrived on set, they realised the man had shot the back of their truck.

The source added: "The guy had taken off by then, but when they realised the car was shot, they were really freaked out, and the production secured the scene," the source says. "Even though they were upset, [Denise] decided to stay and film. Her role was just a one-day deal.

"The production company made her feel safe but they didn't file a police report.

"They think now that people were after the car itself because it's worth a lot of money."

At the end of Denise's working day, an off-duty police officer, who was on the set, later escorted the pair back onto the freeway as they headed home.



Frasier star Kelsey Grammer reveals why David Hyde Pierce won't join revival

No Niles for new Frasier

Kelsey Grammer admits David Hyde Pierce didn't want to return for the 'Frasier' revival.

The 67-year-old actor is reprising his role as Frasier Crane in a sequel series to the beloved 'Cheers' spin-off, but David - who played his younger brother Niles in the sitcom - has decided not to get involved.

Speaking to People magazine, Kelsey said: "David basically decided he wasn’t really interested in repeating the performance of Niles."

The initial idea for the revival - which has been in the pipeline for "six or seven years" - was to bring back all the so-called "legacy cast", including Kelsey and David, as well as Peri Gilpin (Roz Doyle), Jane Leeves (Daphne Moon) and the late John Mahoney (Martin Crane), who passed away in 2018.

However, Kelsey - who is set to start rehearsals with the new cast in February 2023 - admitted David's decision change their plans for the Paramount+ series.

He explained: "In a very funny way, it just took us to a new place, which was what we originally wanted to do anyway, which was a Fraser third act. It's an entirely new life for him."

Fans aren't quite sure what to expect when Kelsey returns as Frasier, having played him for 11 seasons as a radio psychiatrist in Seattle.

However, the actor teased: "He's our brave little soldier that continues on in life, finding new challenges and a new love and new people and a new city and stuff like that.

"I'm really very excited about it, and we'll certainly always honor the past.

"We have to honour the fact that John Mahoney died and that Martin is no longer with us. We'll be dealing with that for sure."

Meanwhile, they'll also be explaining the absence of other staples from the original run.

He added: ""We'll certainly be responsive about the fact that there was a brother and such. But the new world for Frasier is one of new friendships — and some new twists and turns he didn't know were still in there."



Tommy Fury encourages Tom Brady to turn to reality TV in search for love

Brady search for love on TV?

Tommy Fury has encouraged Tom Brady to look for love on a reality TV show.

The 23-year-old boxer - whose older brother is world champion Tyson Fury - is expecting his first child with girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague after they met on the UK's ITV2 dating show 'Love Island' three years ago, and he suggested it could be a good route for the NFL legend after his split from Gisele Bündchen

He told TMZ Sport: "I'd be an absolute fool to sit here and say Tom Brady couldn't find love on a reality show.

"I mean, I've met the woman of my dreams on a show, and now she's having my children. It's definitely hope for Tom Brady out there."

He added: "I hope he finds love."

Tom and supermodel Gisele finalised their divorce last month, with the star explaining that they had split "amicably" and insisting their children will "continue to be the center" of their world.

He wrote on Instagram: "In recent days, my wife and I finalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage.

"We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together.

"We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way. We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve. (sic)"

The former couple have children Benjamin, 12, and nine-year-old Vivian together, and an insider recently said their kids will have "full access" to both parents despite the split.

The source said: "They can see whichever parent they want. They've got a schedule, but neither of them would prevent their kids from seeing the other parent.

"The kids adore them both, and they'll have full access to both, whenever they want. They're not vindictive like that."

Responding to those calling out their age difference, Cher snapped back: "I'm Not Defending us.

"Haters are Gonna Hate…Doesn' Matter That and Not Bothering Anyone."

When another user questioned Alexander's "motives and intentions", she replied: "Haven't You Got Anything Else 2 Do!? Let Me Explain…I DONT GIVE A [plane emoji] FK WHAT ANYONE THINKS."

Leonardo DiCaprio almost lost Titanic role, Cameron reveals

Titanic without Leo?

Leonardo DiCaprio nearly missed out on his role in 'Titanic'.

The Hollywood heartthrob played Jack Dawson in the iconic 1997 film, but director James Cameron revealed that it almost fell apart due to the star's poor attitude during auditions.

In a career retrospective for GQ, Cameron said: "There was a meeting with Leo and then there was a screen test with Leo.

"The meeting was funny because I am sitting in my conference room, waiting to meet an actor. And I look around, and all the women in the entire office are in the meeting. They all wanted to meet Leo. It was hysterical."

The 'Avatar' director said that the first meeting with DiCaprio went well as the actor "charmed everybody," but things did not go as smoothly when he was asked back for a screen test with co-star Kate Winslet.

Cameron, 68, said: "So he came back a couple of days later, and I had the camera set up to record the video.

"He didn't know he was going to test. He thought it was another meeting to meet Kate. So I said, 'OK, we'll just go in the next room, and we'll run some lines and I'll video it.'

"And he said, 'You mean, I'm reading?' I said, 'Yeah'. He said, 'Oh, I don't read.'"

The filmmaker continued: "I shook his hand and said, 'Thanks for coming by.' And he said, 'Wait, wait, wait. If I don't read, I don't get the part? Just like that?'

"And I said, 'Oh yeah. Come on. This is a giant movie that is going to take two years of my life, and you'll be gone doing five other things while I'm doing post-production. So, I'm not going to f*** it up by making the wrong decision in casting. So, you're going to read, or you're not going to get the part.'"
