Price is Right host and bespectacled comedian Drew Carey zipped through Philadelphia yesterday to dine at Cuba Libre and take a tour of the Betsy Ross House, as is evidenced by this tweet from the home of the famed flag-maker:
Bensalem-bred hip-hop producer Scott Storch made millions—70 of them to be exact—making hits for everyone from Christina Aguilera to Beyoncé, but according to new reports, he’s blown through it all to where he’s down to a measly $100 in cash.
TMZ reports that the music mogul filed bankruptcy and details his financial status in embarrassing detail, saying that Storch claims to have $3,600 worth of assets to his name, the aforementioned $100 in cash, $500 in clothing and a $3,000 watch. And perhaps most unfortunate of all, his music companies are worth nil.
It’s pretty neat to see Bradley Cooper and Kevin Hart, two Philly boys, having their Hollywood heyday at the same time. Over the past few years, their names have been linked to phrases like “top box-office draw,” “No. 1 movie,” and “mega millions.” So it’s no wonder Tinseltown has chosen to immortalize them in concrete and star-shaped plaque form on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
BradleyCooper, who is in Europe performing in The Elephant Man, was in Paris recently, when he was shot by paparazzi with his girlfriend, supermodel IrinaShayk. That photo later appeared in French gossip magazine Oops attached to the phrase “L’amour au grand jour,” which, loosely translates to “Love in the open.” That crossed a line, apparently.
Real Housewives of New York glamour puss Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is coming to Philadelphia next month to host Stilettos & Sneakers. The event is a “celebrity shoe auction” and dinner that benefits the Wish Upon a Hero Foundation, the local nonprofit that “encourages local students to engage in philanthropy on a local level.”
In April, Doylestown native and pop-rock star Pink shut down a bunch of haters on Twitter who were ridiculing a photo of her in which they said it looked like she’d put on a few pounds. Her response was fantastic, and empowering, and it’s prodded interviewers to ask where she gets the strength to deal with the constant criticism on the web and in tabloids. She opens up in this great interview from Entertainment Tonight:
I don’t take well to bullying. I never have. I’m not a person that will be bullied. I’m not a person that will stand by watching other people bullied.
I am a girl, I have feelings and people think I take no shit and I’m tough, tougher than nails, but I’m a human being.
I think people have gotten it wrong. They think their opinion matters and holds weight and I don’t know where or why they’re giving themselves so much credit you know?. … So I thought it was important for me to remind them that I don’t care. My life is full, I like food a lot and I really like to cook, I like to live, I find joy in that and were doing alright in the Hart household.
In a rather revealing interview with Variety, actress Cate Blanchett discussed her upcoming role in the film Carol, where she plays a woman in a relationship with another woman, and disclosed some rather interesting information with about her own sexuality. Read more »
A British Airways flight traveling from London to New York City was diverted to Philadelphia Saturday due to bad weather, and one of the passengers, Entourage star Jeremy Piven, let the world know about it via Twitter.
According to philly.com, the hours-long ordeal started with the passengers being stuck on the runway for three hours. In a tweet that seems to have been deleted, Piven remarked: “Pilot refuses to fly to JFK here on British airways. People are starting to panic.”
Bradley Cooper joins the ranks of decades of celebrities who have been honored with a portrait that now hangs in Sardi’s Restaurant in Manhattan’s Theater District. The honor is akin to getting a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, but here your mug is at the mercy of a caricature artist. As one USA Today blogger points out, Cooper’s portrait “certainly resembles the Oscar- and Tony-nominated actor, but it also, um, looks like a woman. Maybe it’s the lip color and eyelashes?”
