End reality TV, says Pam – Entertainment News

Pamela Anderson has called for the end of reality TV shows, labeling the concept “desperate and exploitative.”

The 51-year-old actress and model expressed her feelings about the programs in a series of tweets on Sunday.

“Did I enjoy being on a reality show?” Pamela began. “Please no more reality shows or reality stars… even France is polluted with them – it’s an epidemic of ugliness, superficial competitions, desperate and exploitative – for the artist.”

Pamela’s message comes despite the fact that she’s appeared on a number of such shows herself – including Australia’s Big Brother in 2008, Dancing With the Stars in 2010, Britain’s Big Brother in 2011, Dancing On Ice in 2013, and most recently on France’s Danse avec les stars last year.

However, it’s believed that the recent suicide of Mike Thalassitis, a former contestant on British reality series Love Island, sparked Pamela’s remarks.

An investigation by the Sun on Sunday newspaper looked into global deaths since 1986, and found that 38 people have killed themselves after finding fame on a reality show.

Pamela continued her tweets by admitting she only “forgave” herself for appearing on reality TV shows by donating her fees to charity.

“You are usually bullied into doing TV like this by agents fighting over commissions – you’re left without any great amount of joy or money – you feel used, dirty, and with no feeling of accomplishment,” she mused.

“Unless of course – you attempt to find any meaning or redemption by donating all to charity. It’s how I forgave myself.”

Ed Sheeran believes that “looking a bit weird” helped further his career when he was starting out in music.

The Shape of You hitmaker admitted during an interview with DJ Nihal and rapper Dave for anti-racism campaign group Love Music Hate Racism that while he wasn’t initially fond of his “quirky” appearance, he can now see how it has helped him to establish a successful music career.

“I have always looked a little bit quirky and I never had much luck with girls,” he confessed. “It was always like I looked a bit weird, and then when I started playing music, every time I would do a gig everyone was like ‘oh, it’s the ginger guy with the small guitar’, and you get remembered for that.”

Ed went on to reveal that he was bullied at school because he was “ginger, had a stutter and wore huge glasses,”

“Because I was ginger I was instantly ripped into from the day I started school,” the 28-year-old said. “I hated primary school with a passion. I would cry every single day.”

Despite the negative experience, the Thinking Out Loud singer suggested that it was his interest in music that helped him to gain confidence and ultimately drove his career ambitions.

“I got to high school and started playing guitar,” he recalled. “I joined a band, and music is just one of these things which gives you confidence and you’re suddenly like ‘wow I can actually do something well’.”

Ed is now one of the most famous singers in the world, with a string of hits such as Thinking Out Loud, Castle on the Hill and The A Team under his belt.

Mel B let slip that she’s had sex with Spice Girls bandmate Geri Horner during a candid chat with Piers Morgan.

The 43-year-old singer, who has previously come out as bisexual, made the stunning admission while filming an interview for Piers’ Life Stories series.

The mother-of-three confessed Geri had “great boobs” and said of the tryst: “It just happened.”

According to British newspaper The Sun, Mel was forced to make a frantic phone call to Geri to apologize for the confession, amid claims the revelation about their past may upset her husband, Christian Horner.

Discussing her time in the famous girl band, Mel went into great detail about her relationship and friendship with mom-of-two Geri.

“We were best friends. It just happened. She (Geri) is going to hate me for this because she is all posh in her country house and her husband, but it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it,” the former America’s Got Talent judge told Piers, before insisting that they only had sex once.

“This is a bombshell. A Spice Girls bombshell. You have never admitted this before have you? People are going to be fascinated!” a shocked Piers said.

Joking that Geri’s husband Christian was going to kill her for sharing the news of their saucy romance, Mel replied: “Yeah, and I have said it now. All done. She is going to kill me, and so is her husband.

“Hopefully when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won’t deny it, because it was just a thing, a fun thing.”

Spice Girls bandmate Mel C, who was in the audience, was said to be “visibly horrified” at Mel’s revelation, according to The Sun.

Jennifer Lopez has reportedly begun making plans for her most “opulent” wedding yet as she prepares to tie the knot for the fourth time.

Despite being a seasoned bride, the singer and actress, whose boyfriend of two years Alex Rodriguez recently confirmed she had accepted his marriage proposal, complete with $1 million ring, she is thought to be planning a lavish ceremony.

“Jen may have been married three times, but this time she’s sure Alex is The One,” a source explained to Britain’s Heat magazine. “Jen figures this will be her final opportunity for a proper, princess-style wedding, so why shouldn’t she go all out?”

According to the publication, the 49-year-old and the former baseball star are said to be considering a destination wedding in exclusive locations such as the Bahamas, where the pair recently holidayed to celebrate their happy news, The Hamptons, Hawaii or a private island.

“Jen wants a really star-studded opulent ceremony,” the insider said. “She’s aware there’s a fine line between classy and over-the top, so she’s working with a team of high-end planners and lifestyle experts.”

Although she has three failed marriages behind her, to Marc Anthony, father of her 11-year-old twins Max and Emme, Cris Judd and Ojani Noa, Jennifer admitted in interview that she still believes in love, calling it her “biggest dream.”

And the Shades of Blue star, who turns 50 this year, is keen for her star-studded wedding to happen sooner rather than later.

“She’d rather not have a long engagement, and it would be a surprise if the ceremony coincided with her 50th birthday party this summer,” continued the insider. “The guest list will include a tonne of celebrities and maybe some of her exes.

“Jen knows exactly what she wants, and money is no object.”

Actress Diane Kruger was tasked with passing through immigration at an Israeli airport with a fake passport as part of her specialist training for new movie The Operative.

The film features the Troy star as a woman recruited to work undercover in Iran for Israeli security officials at Mossad, and to prepare for the part, she was given a series of real-life obstacles to pull off under the watchful eye of the organization’s intelligence officials.

The challenges proved to be exhilarating for Diane, and gave her a good idea of how agents manage to keep their cool while on a mission.

“One of the things that helped me most – at least it got my heart beating – was they made me a fake passport with a fake identity and I had to get through customs with it,” she told iNews of the Tel Aviv test.

“It put things into perspective. What would I feel like if I had to go to Iran right now, and they find out I’m Israeli? Oh my God! Definitely dead.”

Diane, who was successful in convincing immigration officials that her false identity was for real, also had to learn how to identify a target upon first glance, among other tactics.

Having experienced the rigorous training, she doesn’t think she would enjoy leading the life of a real intelligence agent, despite harboring dreams of starring as superspy James Bond when she was younger.

“I always thought it must be so cool to be James Bond,” she shared. “But the realities of being a spy are closer to what we did. It’s cool, but I don’t dream about it any more.”

Admitting it didn’t suit her personality, she explained, “I’m very introverted, in my real life, to a fault. I think I can appear cold or standoffish. I really have to force myself to be outgoing.

“Acting has, for me, been the opportunity to identify with someone else, be someone else.”

For now, Diane is enjoying her latest role as a first-time mother – she welcomed a daughter with boyfriend Norman Reedus in November – and she is in no rush to return to work.

“I’m still on hiatus,” she said. “I think I’ll start looking at roles in the summer.”

Hailey Bieber admits she can get “frustrated” by her husband Justin Bieber’s obsessive fans.

Hailey wed the Sorry hitmaker in a secret courthouse ceremony in New York in September.

In a new interview, the 22-year-old model opened up about the challenges of being married to a world famous popstar who was millions of adoring fans.

“The problem is kids become possessive over people and feel like if they think they’re hurt, they feel hurt for them and they’re hurt too, or whatever it is,” Hailey complained to Cosmopolitan.

“They just think they know these people who are famous because their life is so exposed. And that’s what gets me, I think, the most frustrated.”

She explained she was sick of Justin’s fans making assumptions about their relationship, and “creating scenarios in their head.”

“I’m like, ‘You actually don’t know me. You don’t know him. You don’t know these people for real,'” she continued. “What’s really weird to me is they create scenarios in their head of what they think is happening, or what they think should happen, and I’m just like, ‘This is just so dumb. It’s so dumb.'”

The couple wed just weeks after getting engaged in July following a whirlwind romance, and Hailey revealed that she’s still struggling to adapt to the negative and “mean” comments she gets on social media from the 25-year-old singer’s fans and followers.

“I’ve found that I got to a place where I don’t read the comments. People can just be mean, and I feel like if you don’t want it to get to you, then don’t read it and allow it to affect your soul,” she said.

“You still care to a certain extent. You really have to train your brain to be like, ‘OK, why do I even care?’ I don’t know these people, they don’t know me, they’re not a part of my life or relationship.”

Jordan Peele has done it again. Two years after the filmmaker’s “Get Out” became a box-office sensation, his frightening follow-up, “Us,” debuted with $70.3 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The opening, well above forecasts, had few parallels. It was the largest debut for an original horror film (only the “It” remake and last year’s “Halloween” have surpassed it in the genre) and one of the highest openings for a live-action original film since “Avatar” was released 10 years ago.

In today’s franchise-driven movie world, seldom has a young director been such a draw. But moviegoers turned out in droves to see what kind of freak-out Peele could muster in his sophomore release.

“Peele has really crafted an extraordinary story that I think once again is going to capture the cultural zeitgeist,” said Jim Orr, distribution chief for Universal. “He is recognized as just an amazing talent. He crafts films that make you think, that are extraordinarily well-acted, well-written and are amazingly entertaining.”

“Us” took over the top spot at the box office from “Captain Marvel,” which had reigned for two weeks. The Marvel Studios superhero release slid to second place with $35 million in its third week. In three weeks of release, it’s made $910 million worldwide, and will soon become the first $1 billion release of 2019.

Other holdovers — the animated amusement “Wonder Park” and the cystic fibrosis teen romance “Five Feet Apart”— trailed in third and fourth with about $9 million each in their second week.

But the weekend belonged overwhelming to “Us,” which more than doubled the $33.4 million domestic debut of 2017’s Oscar-winning “Get Out.” The former “Key & Peele” star’s first film as writer-director, “Get Out” ultimately grossed $255.4 million on a $4.5 million budget.

“Us” cost $20 million to make, meaning it’s already a huge hit for Peele and Universal Pictures, which notched its third No. 1 release of the year following “Glass” and “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.”

It’s also, as Peele has said, more thoroughly a horror film. While “Us” has drawn very good reviews (94 per cent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes), audiences gave it a relatively low “B” CinemaScore. Paul Dergarabedian chalked that up mainly to moviegoers feeling shell-shocked when they emerged from the theatre.

“Us” stars Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke as vacationing parents whose family is faced with eerie doppelgangers of themselves. The film added $16.7 million from 47 international territories.

While “Us” was propelled by a number of things, including Nyong’o and buzz out of its SXSW premiere, the main selling point was Peele. The 40-year-old director already has an imprimatur matched only by veteran filmmakers like Clint Eastwood.

“It’s really difficult for a director to become a superstar whose name gets people in theatre, and Jordan Peele has done just that,” said Dergarabedian. “He’s a superstar director with a brand all his own, and that’s with two feature films under his belt. That’s pretty astonishing. That just doesn’t happen.”

After a sluggish January and February, the overall box office has rebounded thanks to “Captain Marvel” and “Us.” The weekend was up 15.3 per cent from last year, according to Comscore.

The weekend followed an especially tumultuous week in Hollywood. On Monday, Warner Bros. chief Kevin Tsujihara stepped down following a sex scandal. On Wednesday, the Walt Disney Co. completed its $71.3 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

In absorbing one of the six major studios in 20th Century Fox, Disney quickly made many layoffs and shuttered Fox 2000, the Fox label behind hit book adaptations like “Hidden Figures” and “Life of Pi.”

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theatres, according to Comscore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.

1. “Us,” $70.3 million ($16.7 million international).

2. “Captain Marvel,” $35 million.

3. “Wonder Park,” $9 million.

4. “Five Feet Apart,” $8.8 million.

5. “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World,” $6.5 million.

6. “A Madea Family Funeral,” $4.5 million.

7. “Gloria Bell,” $1.8 million.

8. “No Manches Frida,” $1.8 million.

9. “Lego Movie 2: The Second Part,” $1.1 million.

10. “Alita: Battle Angel,” $1 million.

Jennifer Lawrence and Adele were spotted on a raucous night out at a New York gay club.

The Oscar-winning pair were seen at Pieces nightclub, a gay bar in the city’s Greenwich Village, on Friday, apparently celebrating Jennifer’s engagement to her art director beau Cooke Maroney.

In a video taken at the club and posted on social media, Jennifer and Adele are seen with a group of friends and are hauled on stage to take part in a drinking game by drag queens.

The Hello hitmaker, 30, is wearing an all-black outfit and thigh high boots with a drag queen dressed in an orange dress, and in the clip, she’s asked what she does for a living.

“I’m actually currently a stay-at-home-mum,” she laughed, as the crowd cheered, and then confirmed she was married when asked if she was single or taken.

“But are you still ready to mingle and have a great time with the gays tonight?” the drag queen asked Adele, to which she quickly replied: “F***ing obviously!”

The Hunger Games star, 28, was dressed down in sleeveless top and a black mini skirt, with her hair up in a messy bun.

And as one drag queen asked if the double Oscar-winning actress wanted to take part, Adele drunkenly shouted in her friend’s face: “Yes b**ch! She’s f**king engaged! She’s not even relevant to be here!”

“That has nothing to do with my drinking abilities!” Jennifer joked to the crowd.

Fellow clubgoers were quick to share the pair’s drunken night out ” which some have speculated to be a low-key bachelorette party for Jennifer ” and one reposted the video on Twitter, writing, “Adele is crashing Pieces drag show tonight. I just realized it. Oh boy, this is fun. Wait @Adele is not here alone. @JenLawrenceORG is here too. Hello full moon.”

Bruce Willis and his wife Emma Heming have celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary with a vow renewal ceremony, attended by the actor’s ex Demi Moore.

The Die Hard action man, 64, originally tied the knot with Emma back in 2009, and on Thursday, the couple threw a special gathering to mark a decade as a married couple.

The model shared a photo of themselves locking lips as the bride held a white bouquet, and captioned it: “We said, we do, again, 10 years later #happyanniversarymylove.”

The 40 year old went on to share further images from their big day, with one featuring the extended Willis family, including Bruce’s first wife, Demi, the mother of his three older daughters.

The sweet picture featured the movie veteran and Emma sitting in the centre of the snap, with their girls Mabel, six, and four-year-old Evelyn by their side.

Also pictured were Bruce and Demi’s kids Rumer, 30, and Scout, 27, with the Ghost actress beaming at the edge of the group shot. Their youngest child, 25-year-old Tallulah, was not pictured, and it’s not clear if she was in attendance.

Demi, 56, has formed a close relationship with Bruce and Emma, and was also present for their nuptials 10 years ago.

Last summer, she gamely took part in the Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis, cracking joke after joke about her former spouse, tackling everything from his film flops to his parenting skills.

“For those of you that don’t know me, I am Demi Moore,” she began. “I was married to Bruce for the first three Die Hard movies, which makes sense because the last two sucked.”

She then poked fun at his aversion to diaper duty: “Bruce is super generous,” she smiled. “When our daughter Rumer was a baby and it was his turn to change the diaper in the middle of the night, he would lean over and whisper to me, ‘I’ll give you a thousand dollars right now if you change that diaper.'”

“Scout asked me not to say anything, but just last week he offered her a thousand dollars to change his diaper,” she added. “Some things never change!”

Demi and Bruce were married from 1987 to 2000.

TV bosses have decided to pre-shoot The Big Bang Theory finale before the cast closes out the show in front of a studio audience, because they don’t think stars like Kaley Cuoco will be able to control their emotions.

The hit comedy will end in May and producers want to make sure their stars don’t lose it on camera in front of fans.

“We did get told recently we’re gonna pre-shoot it and get it all done then we’ll do most of it for an audience,” Cuoco, who has played Penny on the show since 2007, tells Access Live. “They’re (producers) afraid we are going to get too emotional, and so they wanna make sure that we had it and then we’ll shoot it and if we cry we cry… I guarantee that will happen.”

Kaley admits she is already a bit of a mess as she contemplated the final show: “It’s so sad… I’m devastated. I’m barely keeping it together.”

She picked up a little advice from a new pal at dinner: “I ran into Jennifer Aniston recently at dinner and I was like, ‘My show is ending and your finale meant so much to me…’ She was so sweet… She then called security… Our court date is coming up,” the actress jokes.

Cuoco also told the TV show the final episode of The Big Bang Theory has not been written.

“I don’t even think the writers know what the finale is gonna be,” she explains. “It’s not written. We have four more episodes… I know they have ideas of how it is gonna to go but they have been very up front, saying, ‘We have not written this yet, we’re still unsure of a couple of things’. They don’t wanna write it!”

Hip-hop star Cardi B is taking two bloggers to court for defamation, accusing them of making false allegations about her sex life and supposed drug use.

The Bodak Yellow hitmaker has taken issue with statements made in online videos by Latasha K and Starmarie Ebony Jones, and now she is demanding an injunction to have all of the relevant clips taken down.

In court papers obtained by TMZ, Cardi claims Latasha K raised concerns that her baby daughter Kulture may have suffered from intellectual disabilities in an April 2018 post on her blog unWinewithTashaK, appearing to suggest the rapper had taken drugs while she was pregnant with her first child.

She also highlights more than 20 other clips shared online in the last 14 months which she deems defamatory.

Meanwhile, Cardi has blasted Jones for allegedly airing similar drug claims in a video uploaded in September, when she is said to have accused the 26 year old of taking ecstasy and cocaine, while also selling her body for sex.

Jones reportedly referred to Cardi as “just a Grammy nominated prostitute running around spreading her herpes”.

Both women even teamed up for a video blog, in which they made additional sex and drug allegations about Migos star Offset’s wife.

Cardi has vehemently denied the bloggers’ remarks, making it clear she has never been a prostitute, taken cocaine or ecstasy, or had sexually transmitted disease herpes.

She tried to have the women retract their statements without court action, but they refused her request, forcing Cardi to file suit.
