    What do you think went down in the Miranda Kerr deal?

    • MVD says:

      I think it’s gross when family of celebrities go to the press like that, no matter what issues they have with their famous relative. Whether it’s true or not, you’ve lost all legitimacy by airing all your family issues in public.

      • LadySlippers says:

        To me gross isn’t the right word (not sure what word I would use though to be honest).

        However, I do agree that airing the family’s dirty laundry isn’t a good option either. So it’s kinda a catch-22 for the offended party — they allow the public to see another part if a celebrity we wouldn’t normally glimpse but also possibly strengthens the original complaint the celebrity had with affected person(s). Ya know?

    • lunchcoma says:

      Cringeworthy. If she’s really just inattentive, embarrassing her in public isn’t going to make her more interested in talking to her family and will probably have the opposite effect. And, while I don’t normally have that high of an opinion of Miranda, I generally try to allow for the possibility that there’s a good reason for an adult to break off contact with his or her parents. There are a lot of families with toxic members or dynamics, and celebrities aren’t exempt.

    • olivia says:

      PR – for Miranda or for her mom’s new cosmetic line. The line supposedly debuts this month. That’s convenient timing.

    Nothing about Shirley Temple Black’s death ?

  3. Bec says:

    I second that. Please post about the death of Shirley Temple Black. I am aware a lot of outlets (news and celeb news) have covered it already.

  4. Hannah says:

    What’s that poster in the background?

  5. Paola says:

    I knew Amy Adams was born in Vicenza and Rose McGowan in Florence, but that doesn’t make them italian citizens.. They were just born in Italy.
    Sorry if i’m picky but there’s a big discussion in Italy right now about this from all the immigrants who live legally in Italy. To be italian you have to be born from italian parents ( or have at least a grand parent of italian citizenship) and if you’re a foreigner you have to work legally in Italy for at least 10 years before you can apply for the citizenship. If you have foreign parents and you were born and live in Italy you can apply for the citizenship and become an italian citizen only when you turn 18. It sucks I know.

    p.s. just posting this because the original articles states that they are italians which is not accurate.

    • LadySlippers says:

      Interesting. But then again, I’m a geek so I find all kinds of stuff interesting.


      • Paola says:

        Yeah i regret this post.
        Sounds dorky and lame :D

      • Tiffany :) says:

        No, Paola, no regrets! It is very interesting to hear about!

      • LadySlippers says:

        I agree with Tiffany. It’s interesting to see how other countries define the age old question of ‘who’s a citizen?’ So please do not apologize.

      • lunchcoma says:

        I also thought that was interesting, Paola. I’m American and tend to assume birthright citizenship, and it’s good to get a reminder that that’s not the way every country handles those matters.

      • Paola says:

        Ok then.. I could go on and on about it for a loooong time!
        Just kidding :P

        Anyway I prefer it this way.. because I know people who wanted their children to be american and they spent the last few months of pregnancy in the Us and the children have indeed the american passport.
        I don’t know if it’s possible now? I think I heard somebody going on about the fact the rules have changed!

      • LadySlippers says:

        Paola, LunchComa would prob know the citizenship requirements better than most (she’s a fancy schmancy attorney) but as far as I know — bring born in the US still guarantees American citizenship (as does having at least one American as a parent).

        Every country is a tad different with their rules. IIRC our neighbours to the north (Canada) are also looking to change their rules concerning citizenship.

        BTW Lunchie, fancy schmancy is a compliment! ;-)

      • lunchcoma says:

        *looks down at jeans and slippers*

        *decides this new definition of fancy schmancy has its merits*

        Paola, LadySlippers is correct, being born in the US automatically qualifies you for citizenship. The same goes for people whose parents are both American and for the vast majority people who have one American and one non-American parent. There’s some discussion about changing birthright citizenship rules every now and then, due to immigration problems, but nothing has actually been done and I think it would be hard to change the rules in a way that would survive challenges in court.

      • Paola says:

        I have many friends trying to get the italian citizenship but I found out it’s so very hard. My best friend is albanian and finally she can apply for it next year after 14 years in Italy. It doesn’t matter if you’ve spent many years in the country as a student.. all that matters is for how many years you’ve been a legit worker. Next year she’ll have ten years of legally working under the belt and she will finally be able to travel more. As an italian citizen you can travel pretty much everywhere while if you’re out of the European community is quite hard to visit places like the Us, Australia or the Uk.
        I sometimes take for granted how lucky I am for being an european citizen.. I have never had to face many problems some of my friends have experienced.
        The place of birth really matters, it opens many doors .

    • Lex says:

      Same as in Australia – kids born to foreign parents are not Australian citizens and they have to be added to their parents’ visas.

      I know some countries that do allow automatic citizenship have issues with ‘anchor babies’ (not trying to be controversial – some see this as an issue, some don’t!) where the parents will travel while pregnant so they can have their baby in the country they want to live in – the govt won’t kick out the baby as it’s a citizen and the baby can’t be separated from the parents so the parents just get to stay too. It is a loophole for immigration

    What’s the sequel going to be about? How he went from being a stripper to a movie star. Enough already; the first MM wasn’t that good. The only good thing about it was Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello

    • NorthernGirl_20 says:

      I so agree with you, I watched because of the men but wow it was terrible! The actress who played the love interest was so bad she ruined every scene she was in.

      • Alexandra says:

        That actress whatshername was cringe-worthy. I could read a teleprompter with more emotion than her, totally ruined the movie for me, which overall wasn’t that good. I found it dull, uninspiring; Alex Pettyfer’s character was annoying as hell, doing one stupid thing after another – 0 compassion for him – and there wasn’t much to Channing’s either. He’s the stripper star who meets this chick, wants to help every d*ck in town and suddenly thinks about changing his life. Whatever. The main problem I found with “Magic Mike”, which I’ve seen a while ago, was that I didn’t get what was so bad about being a stripper. It’s not like he was a heroin addict of sorts, to desperately want to change his life. He was making big money, then the next thing you know is that he stops showing up for the show without announcing his boss, because he wanted something better. Literally, the few moments I enjoyed were those involving Matthew’s dance routine.

      • V4Real says:

        Oh yes how could I forget Matty’s little dance number. What a body on Mr. M.

      • Liv says:

        I remember that actress! I also found her horrible. She’s the daughter of a producer or something, that’s probably why she got the job.

  7. L says:

    I guess it’s in the featured links-but I’m surprised there wasn’t a post about Shirley Temple either. (and yet Julia Robert’s half sister while still tragic and sad got a full article)

    Shirley temple is a icon.

  8. dizzylucy says:

    Magic Mike had a script? Huh. Could have fooled me.

    If your celebrity family member isn’t speaking to you, I don’t think a public plea is EVER a good idea.

  9. LadySlippers says:

    Confession: I’ve never seen Magic Mike — is it worth it? I’ve heard mostly bad reviews (even from teenage girls) sprinkled with people drooling over the men. Is it worth a look or is it that bad?

    • lunchcoma says:

      The plot is oddly kind of a downer for a movie that’s supposed to be fairly fluffy, and the movie isn’t written or acted well enough to be anything very serious. The menfolks are pretty, though.

    • megs283 says:

      No, the movie was not good. I went in expecting light-hearted laughs…and it’s pretty darn depressing, actually.

    • V4Real says:

      The movie is partly based on Tatum’s real life except now he is playing the part of Magic Mike. Tatum statred out as a male stripper in Florida. Magic Mike was the entertainer that took Tatum under his wings and showed him the way of the stripper. The only thing Tatum did was reverse the roles and he became Magic Mike.

      Some people were unaware that there was really a Magic Mike that Tatum used to dance with in Florida and yes he was heavy into drugs. The movie wasn’t that good in my opinion.

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      I only watched it because of all the hype and lost interest long before the ending. If you like looking at men’s bodies and don’t mind that there is absolutely no substance (or just a crappy script), then go for it. However I think you would prefer your man candy to have a bit more intellectual interaction than this movie offers up. I appreciate is it based partly on truth but it really was just about the bodies (and sexism in reverse is still sexism).

      My recommendation – Avoid unless you are desperate to see mostly naked men with dead eyes prancing around.

      Magic Mike 2 will be a flop, no matter what. Channing should stop writing the script now.

      • LadySlippers says:

        So… no plot and it’s only good for the male eye candy? Sounds like porn w/o the sex.


        Yeah, I like men. But I freakin’ adore intelligent men. And an eye candy movie should NOT be depressing either. This should be a chocolate/ ice cream fest with yummy men as dessert.

        I’ll probably pass…

  10. Serena says:

    Please, no part 2 for Magic Mike! Please, not this movie!

  11. pru says:

    I just can’t wrap my head around “Channing Tatum, screenwriter”.
    Stripper, yes. Actor portraying stripper, ok. Writer, no.

  12. Lark says:

    I wonder what the sequel will be about? BTW, can we have some “Olympics” gossip? Come on….what about Plushenko and his delightfully tacky wife?
