Who knew the video blogs that Alex McCord tapes for RumorFix would become so controversial?
The blogs reveal "juicy" information she knows like when producers “set up” shots.
Apparently the top brass at Bravo isn’t too happy about them – the network has fired off a letter to Alex’s agent asking for the reality TV star to “put a lid on it.”
That feisty Alex taped a special blog for us responding to the controversy, telling her fans, “I appreciate the comments everybody has been making on the videos about the Real Housewives of New York City and I’m going to keep doing them!”
Her husband, Simon Van Kempen, who appears in the video, has a message for his former employer, “Bravo, you can’t put Alex in a corner.”
Alex tells us she has no “insider information,” her knowledge comes from being on the show for four seasons. “I stayed 100 percent away from filming,” she tells us.
She's in touch with cast members, but "during the production period we all stayed away."
She says, “I’m watching the show just like anyone else is.”
Friends fear that Michael Phelps’ new girlfriend Megan Rossee is only in it for the fame, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The Olympic swimming champion is besotted with the leggy, blonde aspiring model – but has been warned that she’s just using him to climb the showbiz ladder.
Worse still, pals are concerned that he will be left heartbroken if things don’t work out between them.
“Michael is like a puppy dog around Megan – he’s completely in love with her,” a close source said.
“However, like any young girl hoping to make it in Hollywood, she’s ambitious and knows that by associating herself with Michael she will get a lot of press herself.
“She’s desperate for her own fame – her career has been a slow-burner but this will certainly accelerate it.
“Megan supplements the little money she makes through modeling by working as a cocktail waitress at Blok nightclub – but neither she nor Michael want her doing that forever.
“Now that people know who she is, Megan is hoping that she will get more offers for photoshoots and her modeling and acting career will finally take off,” the source revealed.
Despite supporting Michael at the Olympic trials in Omaha and the London 2012 Olympics, friends are wary that Megan will leave the Olympic swimming champ heartbroken if their relationship was to ever end.
“He took her to the Olympics at a time when he was trying to become the most decorated Olympian of all time – that’s how much she means to him,” an insider divulged.
“Michael adores everything about Megan, she’s athletic, makes him laugh and she’s obviously drop dead gorgeous.
“But what happens when the buzz of the Olympics dies down and life goes back to normal? Will she want to date a retired swimmer?”
As RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed, the mystery blonde Phelps was spotted celebrating with in London was cocktail waitress, Megan.
The pair have been serious since January – but wanted to keep their relationship under wraps as Michael concentrated on becoming the most decorated Olympian of all time at the 2012 London Games.
BC Sports Group Chairman Mark Lazarus and NBC Research Group President Alan Wurtzel defended the network’s Summer Olympics coverage strategy during a conference call with reporters Thursday morning. Here’s the duo taking on several burning questions, including the network’s decision to tape-delay certain events.
How have the Olympics performed so far?
Actually quite great. Ratings are up 10 percent from the last Summer Games in Beijing. The coverage package might show a profit for NBC instead of another $200+ million loss like in Vancouver in 2010. Lazarus says NBC’s affiliates, advertisers, and partners are all happy (plus some viewers too). “We couldn’t be more pleased by the results on all of our platforms,” Lazarus said. “We are over-delivering on every day part.”
Why isn’t more coverage live?
From NBC’s perspective, more Olympics content is live than ever before. Across NBC and the Comcast cable networks, more than two thirds of the Games’ TV coverage has been live — 158.5 live television hours out of the 274 hours thus far telecast. Plus, there’s online streaming of the events. “No one has ever done this much live streaming before,” Lazarus said. There’s also certain inherent restrictions, Lazarus noted, to what a broadcast network can show live given the time difference from London and the fact many different Olympic events are happening simultaneously. Moreover, NBC’s research suggest — and critics are going to hate this — that being spoiled doesn’t hurt viewership. According to Wurtzel, 67 percent of viewers in one survey said they knew the day’s results and planned to watch NBC’s primetime coverage anyway, compared to 54 percent who did not hear the results.
OK, but if viewers knowing the results doesn’t hurt ratings, why not air major short events — like a Michael Phelps swimming race — live during the day and repeat it in primetime? (Like we suggested): When answering this question, Lazarus seemed to hint that NBC’s policy could change — eventually.
“We will continue to innovate our coverage,” he said. “What we’re doing today is leaps and bounds ahead of the way the Olympics were handled in Beijing … be sure we’re analyzing everything. We’re really understanding the numbers and how our audience is consuming this and we’ll take all the data in and make future plans.”
Does NBC regret anything about its coverage?
Yes, that Today promo that spoiled a race’s outcome. “We had an unfortunate incident where we didn’t have the backup system to our checks and balances when a promo might run and we’ve put that back in place,” Lazarus said. “We’ve apologized to the audience for that.”
What about that suspicious-seeming editing of Tuesday’s women’s gymnastics event that seemed to ignore the results of a Russian competitor in order to heighten the suspense for Team USA?
“We did show the Russians’ results,” Lazarus said. “We did, in the interest of time, not show one of the floor exercises. It was producers’ decision that it was immaterial to the outcome. If you go back to nbcolympics.com and watch it there… our broadcast team did nothing to alter what the viewer would feel in terms of suspense. We are very clear that a Russian gymnast needed to be perfect, and that our team needed to not perform before the floor exercises ever started … It was clear the Russians did not do what they were capable of. Our broadcasters and graphics team laid in exactly what the [USA] team would need and the average [score] they needed was well below the lowest that we had done throughout the tournament and that, in all likelihood, without a major mishap, the U.S. team would win.”
And what about the intense social media criticism?
According to NBC’s research, among users of social media, 82 percent surveyed say that the online buzz makes them more interested in watching the Olympics. “We’ve had some challenges and they’ve been documented … by some of the critics in social media who have new platforms to have their voices heard,” Lazarus said. “Some of it is, in fact, fair, and we are listening. … We’re trying new things and we knew it wouldn’t be perfect and we said that before the Games. We believe most of these issues are gone … as anything in a public forum, not everyone is going to be happy.”
Viewers would watch the Olympics on any channel. Is there any concern that the volume of the #NBCfail criticism could be brand damaging?
“Everyone’s got the right to have their point of view,” Lazarus said. “But I think the overwhelming majority of the people are voting with their clickers and their mouses and their fingers on every device saying, ‘We’re with you, we enjoy what you’re doing, thank you, and please continue.’ We listen, we read, we understand there’s people that don’t like what we’re doing. We think it’s a very loud minority and the silent majority has been with us for these first six days.”

Christina Aguilera is gearing up to release a brand new album by the end of this year, and if this gorgeous promo shot is any indication, we should expect something far more subtle than the hot mess that was 2010′s Bionic.
The black-and-white pic, photographed by Jake Bailey, is an extremely flattering shot of the pop star, and evokes a vintage, classic era, and thankfully does not feature Ms. Aguilera sporting a ball gag.
The Voice coach has described her new LP as “a very heartfelt, deep-rooted, and introspective record,” and word is that her boyfriend, PA-turned-songwriter Matthew Rutler, has penned some tracks for his lady. Her Max Martin-produced lead single is expected to drop sometime this month.
The actress is getting a major raise from the $500,000 plus bonuses she earned for the first movie.
Jennifer Lawrence, whose performance as Katniss Everdeen helped The Hunger Games gross $683.8 million worldwide this spring, is getting a major raise for the sequel.
The Hollywood Reporter reported in February that the Oscar-nominated actress was paid just $500,000 upfront for the first film, plus bonuses depending on box-office performance. Her original deal with studio Lionsgate locked her into four planned films based on the best-selling Suzanne Collins trilogy, but producers -- recognizing the success of the franchise -- moved to renegotiate her contract as the film became an international sensation. Such renegotiations are common on major film franchises. The Twilight stars, for instance, received significant salary bumps in subsequent movies.
Lawrence’s co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth also are said to have renegotiated their contracts, but each will receive far smaller raises, according to sources. Lawrence, whose gritty performance was central to the film, is seen as the marquee star.
Production on the sequel is scheduled to begin in September in Georgia, according to sources. Director Francis Lawrence is replacing Gary Ross, who helmed the first film but chose not to return for Catching Fire. Lionsgate has set a release date of November 23, 2013.
Lawrence, represented by CAA and attorney Steve Warren, declined comment via her publicist. Lionsgate also declined comment.
Sorry, I'd add a picture but I'm making this post from my iPad...so deal.
They've had their ups and downs, but Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas put on a show of unity this weekend as they attended a charity gala in Marbella.
But it was their beautiful daughter, Stella del Carmen, who stole the show at the star-studded Starlite gala, as her famous parents beamed with pride.
The 16-year-old looked stunning in a figure-hugging black halterneck evening dress with a sweetheart neckline.
Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham is abusing Adderall, Xanax and alcohol, a close pal exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com.
While the 20-year-old single mother confesses to past drug abuse and a suicide attempt in her upcoming memoir, My Teenage Dream Ended, she claims she's won the battle, but gal pal Austin Mathouser of Southern California says Farrah is still using drugs.
"When she was in Hollywood to celebrate her 21st birthday we partied at Geisha House and Kiss Lounge in Beso," Austin said.
"All throughout dinner and the club she talked about how she does Xanax and Adderall to stay up and energized. She frequented the bathroom that whole night taking them to stay up."
Austin also told RadarOnline.com that coupled with all the alcohol she was drinking, Farrah became a drugged, drunk mess on that June 2 night.
"She got very drunk. She was grabbing on guys and girls, and even hit one guy that didn't want to dance with her," Austin said.
"She got really sloppy and was throwing her drinks around and yelling."
According to Austin, Farrah told her that not only does she use these prescription drugs to stay awake when she's out partying, but she uses them to deal with her busy schedule.
"Farrah said she does Adderall before every event that she attends," Austin said.
Farrah was pregnant with her daughter Sophia when the baby daddy, Derek Underwood, died in a tragic car crash in 2008 — leading Farrah to contemplate suicide and drown her emotions with marijuana and cocaine.
“When I drank, I’d be happy for 10 minutes," Farrah said. “When I got high, I’d feel a sense of nothingness for about an hour. But in the end, my negative emotions always came rushing back.”
Austin says Farrah has just substituted old drug habits for new drug habits.
"It's sad because she has a little one. Sophia should be her 'high,' her enjoyment and happiness," Austin said.
"I've personally lived with drug addicts and it's not fair to the child at all."
Farrah's reps gave no comment when asked by RadarOnline.com.
With “The Bourne Legacy” hitting theaters this week and “The Avengers” and “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” under his belt, Jeremy Renner has officially made the leap to Hollywood action star. The 41-year-old Modesto native also plays a bounty hunter version of the classic fairy-tale character in “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters,” due out in January. Hero Complex caught up with Renner earlier this summer to talk about ”Bourne,” which opens in theaters Friday, as well as his role in “Avengers,” which comes out on DVD and Blu-ray next month.
HC: Before the last few years, you did a lot of indie films. Did you ever fancy you’d be an action hero?
JR: Not by any stretch of the imagination. It just sort of became opportunities that I don’t think anybody really would want to turn away. As long as it was in the realm of what I feel like I could bring something three-dimensional and truthful and honest, these are worldwide movies, which I thought was a great opportunity to be a part of cinema that people see. That’s interesting to me. Like “The Hurt Locker,” we didn’t know what the heck that was gonna be. And “The Town,” we had an idea, but who knows. You just never know. But these big movies like “The Avengers,” I couldn’t say no to, really, so I thought I’d explore that. It kind of just fell my direction, and I’ve been blessed with the opportunities to learn something new.
HC: Which of these films did you most enjoy making?
JR: They’re all different movies and exciting in different ways. Like “Hansel and Gretel,” I thought was really original content, a really original look and spin on that fairy tale. I’ve seen that one, and it is a lot of fun. It’s like “The Avengers” in a way. It’s the type of cinema where you go in, and you just get entertained, and you come out open-smiling and thinking, “That was a really great experience.” I’m not used to doing that kind of cinema. Usually it’s a little bit more emotional or psychological or something, so I try not to have too much expectation out of that. It’s OK to just go be entertained. That’s what I’m learning, because I haven’t really been a part of that for the last 25 years of my career. … “Hansel and Gretel” I think is also one of those things. It’s a bit darker, and it’s R-rated, and it’s not quite as light as “The Avengers,” and then “Bourne” had that blend.
For me, for personal reasons, it was exciting as an actor, as an artist, because it’s very smart, and it’s emotional. It has this fast pace to it, of course, and it’s great action, but it feels like a small little movie. It’s a very intimate movie in a lot of ways, versus the spectacle of these. Like say “Mission Impossible,” that’s a big, big massive spectacle, as is “Avengers.” And “Hansel and Gretel” not quite so much, but it’s a fantasy. But “Bourne,” to me, resonates because it’s a little bit more for an actor to kind of cling on to because there’s no fantasy in it. It’s all based in reality. Even the stunts are all real. There’s no green screen in that. It’s visceral. It’s authentic, and to me, that’s kind of where my heart and spirit as an artist reside, or at least where I think it does, so it’s a really great match. I feel like I used my brain and my heart, and it was really, really one of the most fun shoots I got to work on. And I worked with Rachel Weisz, one of my favorite actresses.
HC: They’re very physical roles. Was training a challenge?
JR: I love the idea of going to work and having to fight and learn a new skill set, whether it’s muay Thai or Kali or Filipino stick fighting. To me, it’s like college for life. You learn things from the experts of the world, and maybe you continue it, maybe you hate it, but I looked at it as a great opportunity to kind of explore things I would never explore.
HC: Are there things you learned on “Mission Impossible” that you were able to bring with you to “Avengers” and “Bourne”?
JR: Absolutely. I got to work with all the same guys for all the movies — 87Eleven stunt team fight coordinators. Robert Alonzo was my guy on “Mission.” I got to have pretty much all the same guys through all four of those action movies, from “Mission” to “Hansel and Gretel” to “Avengers” and then to “Bourne.” It ended up being almost two years of training with these guys. I just thought, “Wow, this is so great, and I just kept rolling into it. And then starting off doing the big action movie with Tom Cruise — he was such an amazing mentor to me, and just so supportive and being so excited that I was doing some of these things. He gave me some really great advice about how to treat your body, essentially, how to take care of yourself. I’d always been an athlete and physical, but he turned it into a whole ‘nother thing about how seriously important it is that you don’t want to get injured. So he got me really headstrong about taking care of my body.
HC: Will we see you in a Hawkeye movie?
JR: I don’t know. I think there’s always possibilities of anything in the Marvel universe. There’s gotta be a want from people to see something like that. I don’t know if there is. Maybe there is maybe there isn’t. But who knows? We’ll see. (want want want want want omg want!)
HC: In “Avengers,” you sort of get to play both sides. What was that like?
JR: At the end of the day, 90% of the movie, I’m not the character I signed on to play. I’m literally in there for two minutes, and then all of a sudden… All I could really work on was the physical part of it all, because that didn’t change. That was just the biggest challenge to overcome in playing the guy. Also, we’re pretty much introducing a new superhero character to everyone in a movie where there’s a thousand superheroes. So there’s not a lot of back story or understanding we can really tell about who Clint Barton is, or Hawkeye, and is he working for SHIELD or not. There’s a lot of unanswered questions, even for me. And I was OK with that. At least I was still in the movie. And I was glad for that. The closest thing I could really link to was Scarlett [Johansson's] character, Black Widow, because they have a history. And that definitely plays in the movie, I think. And obviously, you can’t go into too much just because there’s so much story to tell, but you definitely get a sense that they’re connected, and that there’s something really, really important that ties them together. And I could try to summarize it, but it can go a lot of places. That excites me, though, that there’s room for other things.
HC: It seems like Hawkeye is sort of on his own team.
JR: Yeah, just by his nature as a sniper if you will, as a guy who hangs out in rooftops, in trees, and takes out his targets from a distance. Joss and I kind of talked about that. About how he’s a loner and a lone-wolf kind of character anyway, and a rebel. I don’t know if he’s really such a team player. He kind of does his own thing… but still with goodwill and intent. So yeah, as part of this big team, I don’t know how he fits in, but he’s really interesting because of that.
HC: Did you prefer playing evil Hawkeye or good Hawkeye?
JR: I prefer the good, because if we go to the evil part, or hypnotized or whatever the heck you want to call it, it’s kind of a vacancy. Not even a bad guy, because there’s not really a consciousness to him. The interesting part was being guilty about the bad things I did do when I was hypnotized. I think he’s already an interesting enough character. To really kind of take away who that character is and just have him be this sort of robot, essentially, and have him be this minion for evil that Loki uses. Again, I could just focus on the task. I was limited, you know what I mean? I was a terminator in a way. So yeah, fun stunts. But is there any sort of emotional content or thought process? No. That doesn’t exist in that time [that he's hypnotized]. It happens to be for most of the movie.
HC: Are you disappointed?
JR: You know, there are a lot of people in that movie. And a lot of important characters. And my character, I felt like if I can help serve story, then I did my job.
HC: At least you had the coolest weapon.
JR: It’s a pretty cool weapon, yeah. I mean, cinematically, it’s really interesting looking, and then the stunt guys all came up with this idea for close-quarter battles, using it as a staff and a weapon, and then all the arrow tips that they kind of got into — I thought that was really cool. So it’s like OK, he’s actually formidable. He’s got a little arsenal.
HC: And it’s all him.
JR: Yeah, exactly. It’s something plausible. He’s a human being. He’s not a superhero with superpowers, he’s just a guy with a high skill set. So I thought that was kind of interesting. And that’s why I was really kind of like, “OK, I think I could see myself doing that role.”
HC: What do you have coming up?
JR: I just did a movie with James Gray directing, and Marion Cotillard, who is one of my favorite actresses (again, some of my favorite actresses. Marion Cotillard and Rachel Weisz. I got to work with both of them right in a row, and that was a real treat for me). And Joaquin Phoenix, who is one of the best actors out there, in my mind. And I got to play a magician. It was great. It’s a beautiful story about the early 1900s in America when all the immigrants were coming through Ellis Island. Marion plays the immigrant, and she sort of gets sold out or pimped out by Joaquin’s character. It’s a terrible way to describe it, but in the simplest way, it’s about a pimp, a whore and a magician. But it’s a little bit more complex than that.
mods ignore the last one. i dun goofed.
Check out these first pictures from Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied‘s wedding on Saturday (August 4) in Big Sur, Calif.
The 31-year-old Oscar-winning actress and the 35-year-old choreographer tied the knot in a traditional Jewish ceremony in the dark. Natalie and Benjamin were wrapped in a Tallit prayer shawl during the service.
While the couple previously exchanged vows with each other earlier this year, they officially became a married couple this weekend!
Natalie and Benjamin have a 13-month-old son together named Aleph.
Congratulations to the happy couple!

In the next “The Hunger Games” sequel movie, Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) may have some competition for the attention of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) from District 12 citizen Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth).
In recent “Catching Fire” film and character news, actor Liam Hemsworth was just voted this week as the Hottest Male Newcomer in the Total Film Hotlist Awards. According to “Books and Review” this Monday, the actor won the coveted title in part for his promising role as the rugged Gale Hawthorne, as well as the many other movies the star—and engaged beau of singer Miley Cyrus—has set on the horizon.
‘The Hunger Games’ film sequel: A bigger role for Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne
After receiving the award as Hottest Newcomer (Male) from “Total Film,” Liam Hemsworth, 22, offered “Catching Fire” fans some insight as to what’s in store for Gale’s character in the sequel movie adaptation, as well as why fans were still so interested in his part despite Hemsworth’s overall little on-screen time in the popular “The Hunger Games” film.
The Australian star first wanted to show his gratitude to those who helped him win the title as hottest actor on the rise. “[A] huge thank you to all of the people who voted for me… I feel very fortunate to have received this award,” he said to “Total Film” in response.
According to Hemsworth, the budding friendship/relationship between kick-butt heroine Katniss Everdeen and best friend Gale Hawthorne will play a much bigger role this time around in the second movie installment of author Suzanne Collins’ bestselling novel trilogy.
“[Gale Hawthorne] is just a good person trying to find a way to stop bad people. And for the most part… he has others’ wellbeing before his own, which I think makes him very likeable,” the actor reported for his take on his on-screen character. “I think just watching the different relationships become complex will be great to see. I’m looking forward to… Gale fighting back [in the story].”
To help play the part of the well-built, hardy character, Hemsworth added that he did his part in working out and “bulking up” to help play the part according to the source material in the original “Hunger Games” books.
“It wasn’t easy [getting ready for the part]. I’m an eater. After training, I had to wait a half hour [after each workout] before I drove anywhere, and had to lay on the ground until I could properly breathe again.” Hemsworth’s hard work paid off — “Men’s Health” magazine also reported he lost over 20 pounds before shooting for “The Hunger Games” movie began.
Liam Hemsworth: Having the odds ever in his favor outside of the 'Catching Fire' film franchise
Outside of Panem and the different Districts, Liam Hemsworth has also made—and is continuing to grow—a name for himself. He is already well-known for his engagement and longtime relationship with singer and Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus, as well as the younger brother of “Thor” actor, Chris Hemsworth.
The younger Hemsworth is scheduled to make an appearance in “The Expendables 2,” and has already finished a few films this year. “I just wrapped up ‘Empire State’… and am about to start ‘Paranoia,’” said the actor excitedly in his interview. “Life’s good!”
No doubt this experience will help make his performance in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” movie all the more exciting for fans; the movie is expected to hit U.S. theaters on November 22, 2013.
such a gorgeous couple! the last two are from twitter not the mag, also :)

Miley Cyrus has just confessed to having a soft spot for Zayn Malik – but for local popstars The Veronicas, it’s his bandmate Harry Styles who’s caught their eye!
"[I'd pash] Harry, because he likes older women," Jessica Origliasso told TheFIX.
"I think that Harry boy's adorable. It's those big green eyes."
And her sister Lisa couldn’t agree more!
"He's beautiful, I think they're all beautiful, from what I've seen of them."
But while the 27-year-old twins are One Direction fans, it seems they aren’t so keen on the reality TV show that made them famous – the ’X-Factor.’
Chatting about their guest mentoring roles on the Australian version of the talent series, Jess added,
"It was a very different experience to what we thought we were getting into. So much of those shows have to do with the show, and nothing to do with the talent on the show, and that's TV, it is what it is.
"As far as being judges [again], it's not in our near future.”
In fact, the duo even turned down the chance to appear on the first season of ‘The Voice Australia'…
"We got approached to do judging, but we were in the middle of making our record at the time," Jess said.
Make sure you get your hands on The Veronicas’ third album ‘Life On Mars’ when it drops this September!
i'm definitely more interested in Kc's storyline...and I forgot already what the C plot was...woops~
Did I not call that?!?! Omg... I don't know how to feel.
It may have taken a long, long time but it’s clear the decades-old friendship between former “That ’70s Show” co-stars Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis finally has morphed into a full-fledged romance.
Apparently, it was Kunis along with a number of other Kutcher chums who reached out to the actor as his marriage to Demi Moore was collapsing.
“Mila basically was just one of several people who gave Ashton a shoulder to cry on — so to speak,’’ said a good Hollywood source, close to both stars. “Mila is a wonderful listener and, since she had been friends of Ashton’s — and also Demi’s — for such a long time, she had a lot of insight into their issues and problems.”
So basically if Demi Moore hadn't married him we wouldn't be counting the days until he cheats on Mila too?
According to that source and others with knowledge of the developing romance, Kutcher and Kunis realized they shared a lot in common — including a strong attraction for each other.
“Probably something they both had stifled for a long, long time,” said a good friend of Kunis’.
The couple’s escape to Bali seems to have clinched the deal, and everyone expects them to “go public” (beyond the paparazzi shots we’ve seen of them kissing) in the very near future.
Happily, it also appears that Moore has begun to move on from her deep depression over losing Kutcher. The actress again is dating — and again it’s a younger man: New Zealand actor Martin Henderson. But he’s only 12 years younger, as opposed to the 15-year gap Moore shared with Kutcher.
More good news: Thanks to some good mediation led by ex-husband Bruce Willis, Moore and their daughters Rumer, Tallulah and Scout have largely reconciled.
