Look out world! Another Real Housewives star is getting into the music business!
It’s former Miss USA turned Beyonce look-a-like turned Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore. Andy Cohen debuted her new track titled “Gone with the Wind Fabulous” last night on Watch What Happens Live, and according to him, it’s a drag queen’s dream!
It goes a little somethin’ like this: “I say ‘I’m fabulous,’ you say, ‘I’m crazy,’ I say, ‘I’m fabulous,’ I’m gone with the wind fabulous, I’m gone with the wind fabulous, I’m gone with the wind fabulous, I’m gone with the wind fabulous. Now twirl, twirl, twirl, twirl, twirl..”
As the song was playing, it got some questionable looks from guests T-Boz and Tatyana Ali at first but then, they came around. “It’s not bad, I can see people gettin’ it at the club,” T-Boz said. Andy, on the other hand, saw a different picture. “I feel that I see an army of drag queens performing this song,” he explained.
On her Twitter account Thursday, the beautiful housewife promoted the single, writing, “#Twirl #GoneWiththeWindFabulous #GWTWF iTunes in Sunday and a ringtone.”
Kenya has also started selling merchandise featuring some of her most memorable sayings.
Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick rightfully capitalize on playing one of the shittiest couple on television, ever, by making an appearance at the grand re-opening of Bangkok's Siam Center.
this dress is prettty
Guess who Leighton hung out with over the holidays?
Adam Brody! They went bowling w/ a group together.
And this is what Leighton looks like without makeup. Sigh.

Bradley Cooper Reveals His Date to the Oscars: His Mom!
No arguments here: Bradley Cooper couldn't be more excited about debuting a new lovely lady on his arm at this year's Oscars. The Silver Linings Playbook actor, 38, told E! News that his plus-one to the Academy Awards is already spoken for -- by none other than mother Gloria."Oh yeah, that was done," he told the site. "One night, when I started the profession, [my mom said], 'If you ever [get nominated], I am the date.'"
"She was freaking out," he added of her reaction to the happy news. Cooper received a coveted nod for Best Actor during Thursday morning's Oscar nominations announcement for his turn as former teacher Pat in Silver Linings Playbook.The David O. Russell-directed film is also up for seven other awards, including Best Director, Best Actress (for Jennifer Lawrence), Best Supporting Actor (for Robert DeNiro), Best Supporting Actress (for Jacki Weaver) and Best Picture.

First photos of Colton Haynes as Roy Harper/Red Arrow on the 'Arrow' Set
The scene involved Thea and Laurel walking from a hot dog stand and chatting whilst walking, quite carelessly, down the middle of a street when all of a sudden a guy in a red hoodie runs past and grabs Thea’s bag. Laurel gives chase for a while but the guy gets away.
Colton Haynes will portray Roy Harper, or as fans of the comic books know,Red Arrow, Green Arrow’s sidekick. He has also gone by the name of Speedy in the comics, but this might cause confusion in the show because Thea (Willa Holland) has already taken that moniker for her nickname. Which brings us nicely on to Roy and Thea becoming love interests in the show.
As cute as I
think thought he was, flop casting tbh. Who would you fancast, ONTD? As Red Arrow and as your favorite comic characters?
Sherlock will soon get a blast from the past: John Hannah has been cast as Sherlock's old drug dealer from London, executive producer Rob Doherty announced Saturday at Elementary's winter TV preview panel.
TVGuide.com has since learned that Hannah will play Rhys, who comes to New York seeking Holmes' (Jonny Lee Miller) help. "Rhys is somebody who was helpful to Sherlock in London every once in a while with respect to cases," Doherty tells us. "Rhys was a guy who had his finger on the pulse of crime in London. That's all in the past.
"When we meet him in the present, he has sought Sherlock out because several years ago he saw an opportunity to retire from the business: He ripped off his bosses and made off with about $2 million and retired to Thailand. His daughter, who actually lives in New York, has been abducted and is being held for ransom. He comes to Sherlock because even Rhys understands and appreciates that on drugs or off drugs, Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective in the history of detecting."
Naturally, having his former dealer in town will not be easy for the recovering addict Sherlock."It's difficult for Sherlock to be around him in that Rhys is a walking, talking trigger," Doherty says. "It's hard to interact with him and not remember his druggie past. So, Joan [Lucy Liu] has to work a little harder than usual."
For her part, Joan will not be a fan of Rhys. "Rhys is a lovely fellow, as is John Hannah, but her guard is up," he says. "She recognizes that as lovely as he may be, he's a criminal. He was a drug dealer. There are reasons to be a little wary of the guy. She's especially uncomfortable that Rhys is staying at the Brownstone."
Emma Stone plays a game of Think Fast! with MTV’s Josh Horowitz during the Gangster Squad press day in Los Angeles.
During the game, when the 24-year-old actress saw a picture of One Direction, started to sing “What Makes You Beautiful.”
“That’s my jam,” Emma confessed.
But when asked if she could name all the guys names, she hesitated. “Harry!” was the only one she could name.
The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel and Shailene Woodley
If there's one moment that "Spider-Man" fans have been waiting for since casting was announced for Marc Webb and Sony's "Amazing" reboot, it's the death of Gwen Stacy. Not because people are tired of Emma Stone's irresistibly charming ways, mind you — she was one of our heroes of 2012 for a reason, after all — but because it's one of the most iconic tragedies in the history of comic books, one that's destined for repeating on the big-screen.
Speaking at the press junket for her new movie "Gangster Squad," Stone was tight-lipped when pressed on whether Gwen will finally meet her maker in the new "Spider-Man" movie, due in theaters on May 2, 2014.
"Will she?" Stone answered MTV's Josh Horowitz when asked if Gwen will die in the "Amazing" sequel. "Is it up to you? Did you write the script? Did you ghost-write the script?"
We have it on good authority that no, Mr. Horowitz did not write the script for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," as a ghost or human or otherwise. But anyone with passing knowledge of Spider-Man's paneled page history understands that it's not a matter of "if" but "when" for Gwen — a grim outcome that feels all the more certain when considering the major addition of Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson to the "Amazing Spider-Man" sequel.
"She's really cool. I went to dinner with her," Stone said of Woodley, whose presence in the "Spider-Man" sequel is destined to complicate the relationship between Peter Parker and Gwen. "She's really, really nice. She's a cool girl."
Woodley isn't the only new addition to the "Spider-Man" universe: "Chronicle" star Dane DeHaan swings into the sequel as Peter's friend and eventual nemesis Harry Osborn, while "Django Unchained" hero Jamie Foxx takes a turn for the villainous as the shocking Electro. Stone will go toe-to-toe with all of these great actors in just one week when the "Spider-Man" sequel starts shooting. With so much up in the air, including the very fate of her character, is Stone prepared to swing back into that not-so-friendly neighborhood world?
"I think I am," she declared. "I think I'm ready."

The boy band, who finished fourth in the last series of the X Factor, signed a record deal with Sony at the end of last year. Taking to Twitter last night, the boys revealed that they would be going into the studio on Monday. They tweeted:“Recording or first single on Monday! So sorry Belfast but we have to change the gig date, things are moving so fast for us! We'll be back! X”
Following the X Factor Union J went on the charm offensive across the country, performing a number of gigs. The band then took a well deserved break over the festive period to recover from a somewhat hectic year. George Shelley, 19, admitted that it was nice to take some time out to simply relax. He said: “It’s been nice to have some family time, we’ve been in a bubble for three months.” The boys are now however back together and ready to try and make 2013 their year.
Meanwhile X Factor winner James Arthur, 24, hit a landmark total of sales this week with his debut single ‘Impossible.’ The singer has now shifted over 1 million copies of the song since it was released five weeks ago. Pretty impressive stuff. James has also finalised his winner’s deal with Simon Cowell owned record label Syco, meaning that he is now able to get to work on his debut album. Speaking about the deal, James admitted: "I am thrilled to be part of the Syco family, working with Simon and his team is exactly where I want to be. I can't wait to get into the studio to start work on my record!"
Fellow finalists Ella Henderson and Jahmene Douglas have also landed themselves record deals since leaving the show. It looks like 2013 is going to be a HUGE year for the X Factor alumni of 2012.
Dwarves and hobbits can't stop laying into each other in real life
The cast of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' had to spend 266 days out in New Zealand filming so you could hardly blame them for going a little stir-crazy, and Martin Freeman and head dwarf Richard Armitage have revealed that there was a lot of clowning around going on on set.
Armitage, who plays head dwarf Thorin Oakenfeld, told STV: "Have to be honest, when Ian's (McKellen) on set there is a lot of naughtiness happening, but you know when those dwarves get together it was, competition of the funniest and most of them are absolutely hilarious.”
At a press conference in London the scale of naughtiness was revealed as the veteran star couldn't resist having a flirt with dwarf James Nesbitt.
Martin Freeman agreed, telling the station: "Yeah, there was a lot of laughter, really a lot of laughter and a lot of p***-taking. I think that's the way we operate, certainly the way the Brits and Irish operate, and the Kiwis as well. The Kiwis are very Anglo in their tastes and characteristics."
Andy Serkis, who stars as Gollum, said: “You're going to be out on a rocky sea for a long time and you all jump in and help each other out. Some people are feeling down one day, someone else will make you feel a bit chipper. And it does become like that.”
The film debuted last week, becoming Peter Jackson' s biggest opening visit to Middle-earth to date.

If you tuned into the 92nd Miss America pageant this Saturday, I hope you made sure you took the contestants and their talents seriously –- you could be looking at the next Oprah.
Before becoming America’s media queen, 18-year-old Oprah was a beauty pageant contestant who strut and sang her way to a Miss Black Tennessee title in 1972. She went on to compete in Miss Black America, until her blossoming news career cut her pageant days short.
Some of our favorite post 50 celebrities -- including Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathie Lee Gifford and Diane Sawyer -- first caught the nation's attention in beauty pageants as well. And decades later, they are still dominating their respective fields with the grace and poise befitting a pageant queen.
What other celebrities were past pageant winners? See our slideshow below.
Before Oprah became an Emmy-winning talk show host, actress and businesswoman, Oprah was crowned Miss Tennessee in 1972.
Years before Michelle Pfeiffer played Elvira Hancock in 1983's "Scarface," she was Miss Orange County.
Before starring in films like "Tomorrow Never Dies," Michelle Yeoh won the title of Miss Malaysia and Miss Moomba in the early 80s.
Television news anchor Diane Sawyer (center) won the Junior Miss pageant in 1963.
Actress and singer Vanessa Williams famously became the first African American Miss America in 1983. Unfortunately, her title was revoked when nude pictures of the beauty queen surfaced.
Wonder Woman won the title of Miss USA in 1972. This picture was taken her after she arrived at London Airport for the Miss World Contest.
ONTD, would you ever enter a beauty pageant?
As it turns out, Jackie Chan is not very grateful to the country that helped him roundhouse kick his way into an estimated $130 million fortune. Speaking on a television show in Hong Kong, Chan had some harsh words for the good ol' U. S. of A.
Chan was discussing recent progress China has made, removing corruption from its government (with limited success) when he called America "the most corrupt [country] in the world." Chan then continues (as translated by Ministry of Tofu), blaming America for the world's troubles and spouting some seriously nationalistic nonsense:
Chan: Of course. Where does this Great Breakdown (financial crisis) come from? It started exactly from the world, the United States. When I was interviewed in the U.S., people asked me, I said the same thing. I said now that China has become strong, everyone is making an issue of China. If our own countrymen don't support our country, who will support our country? We know our country has many problems. We [can] talk about it when the door is closed. To outsiders, [we should say] "our country is the best."
Host: So he can't get enough of his more than 20 ambassador titles. I think the Ministry of Foreign Affairs should ask him to be the ambassador to the United States.
Chan: Seriously, I am always like, when the door is closed, "Our country is like this and this. Who and who is not good." But outside,"Our country is the best, like so and so, is the best." You cannot say our country has problems [when you are outside], like "Yes, our country is bad."
As the Washington Post's Max Fisher points out, Chen has a history of controversial political views. Chan once called Taiwan and Hong Kong examples of what happens when you have"too much freedom." He also once said"Chinese people need to be controlled, otherwise they will do whatever they want," regarding Chinese censorship of his movies.
A 23-year-old contestant from Brooklyn, N.Y., won the title of Miss America in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
Mallory Hagan won the beauty pageant after tap dancing to James Brown's "Get Up Off of That Thing" and answering a question about whether armed guards belong in grade schools by saying we should not fight violence with violence.
Hagan defeated Miss South Carolina Ali Rogers, who took second, and Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton, who finished third.
Hagan wins a $50,000 college scholarship and gets the crown for one year. Her platform was stopping child sexual abuse.
She is expected to spend her title reign on a nationwide speaking tour and raising money for the Children's Miracle Network, the organization's official charity.
Hagan defeated several other notable competitors who grabbed headlines this year because of their backstories.
Miss District of Columbia plans to undergo a preventive double mastectomy to reduce her risk of breast cancer, which killed her mother and grandmother.
Miss Montana was the pageant's first autistic contestant.
Miss Iowa has Tourette's syndrome.
And Miss Maine lost more than 50 pounds before winning her state crown.
The 92nd Miss America annual show held this year at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip is the culmination of a week of preliminary competitions and months of preparations for the titleholders from all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The pageant, which started as little more than an Atlantic City bathing suit revue, broke viewership records in its heyday and bills itself as one of the world's largest scholarships programs for women.
But like other pageants, the show has struggled to stay relevant as national attitudes regarding women's rights and civil rights have evolved.More recently, the rise of reality television has provided a superabundance of options for Americans interested in seeing attractive young people in competitive pursuits.
congrats to miss new york

Lance Armstrong will make a limited confession to doping during his televised interview with Oprah Winfrey this week. The disgraced cyclist, who has long denied doping, will also offer an apology during the interview scheduled to be recorded on Monday night at his home in Austin, Texas, according to an anonymous source.
While not directly saying he would confess or apologise, Armstrong sent a text message to the Associated Press on Saturday saying: "I told her [Winfrey] to go wherever she wants and I'll answer the questions directly, honestly and candidly. That's all I can say."
USA Today, citing an anonymous source, reported that Armstrong plans to admit using performance-enhancing drugs but is unlikely to reveal details of the allegations outlined in a 2012 report by the US Anti-Doping Agency. That report led to Armstrong being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned for life from the sport. Armstrong's representatives declined to comment.
The New York Times reported last week that Armstrong was considering making a confession. The 41-year-old, who denied doping for years, has not spoken publicly about the Usada report. That cast him as the leader of a sophisticated and brazen doping programme on his US Postal Service teams that included use of steroids, blood boosters and illegal blood transfusions.
Winfrey's network said that Armstrong had agreed to a "no holds barred" interview. A confession to Winfrey would come at a time when Armstrong's legal troubles appear to be easing. Any potential perjury charges stemming from his sworn testimony denying doping in a 2005 arbitration fight with a Dallas promotions company over a contract bonus worth $7.5m would fall foul of the statute of limitations.
Armstrong faces a whistle-blower lawsuit filed by his former team-mate Floyd Landis, which accuses him of defrauding the US Postal Service, but the US Justice Department has yet to say if it will join the case.
1 You have yet to respond in detail to the case made against you by the US Anti-Doping Agency which provides overwhelming evidence that you headed a doping programme "more extensive than any previously revealed in professional sports history … a fraudulent course of conduct that extended over a decade". Usada's case against you includes sworn statements from more than two dozen witnesses including 15 professional cyclists and a dozen former members of your teams. How can you deny their case?
2 Past experience of doping confessions suggests that you will claim you had no alternative but to dope because that was the culture of the sport at the time and it was the only way to succeed. Has it ever occurred to you that in 1999, when you won your first Tour de France, the sport was in a state of transition, with a body of riders and teams clearly and publicly committed to change, and that your doping, and that of other US Postal riders in that Tour and those that followed, contributed strongly to the sport being sucked back into the morass of doping? More importantly, did it cross your mind at the time?
3 In the light of the overwhelming evidence of doping against you in the 1999 Tour, have you any words for Christophe Bassons, whom you intimidated during that race over his anti-doping stance? Similarly, have you any thoughts for Filippo Simeoni, whom you bullied out of a possible 2004 stage win after he testified against your trainer Michele Ferrari?
4 What would you say now if you were alone in a room with any of the whistleblowers – Emma O'Reilly, Greg LeMond, Betsy Andreu, David Walsh – who you threatened when they attempted to expose you?
5 Usada's reasoned decision states that you had "ultimate control ... over the doping culture of [the US Postal Service] team ..." that you "required that [your team-mates] adhered to the doping program outlined for them". Was this indeed the case?
6 It is known that you made two substantial payments to the International Cycling Union during your racing career. Why did you make those payments?
7 Could you detail any meetings you may have had at the UCI to discuss doping matters and recall what was said at those meetings?
8 In 2009, you returned to the Tour de France after four years' retirement. Usada claims there is evidence to suggest you used blood doping during that race. Can you confirm or deny that? Either way, why did you refuse your consent for the ICU to supply Usada with its laboratory and collection information from that race for analysis and will you now grant that permission?
9 A cycling fan, who believed in you for many years, asked how people like him could possibly now have faith in any of their heroes. What would you say to him and those in the cancer community who believed in you for so long?
10 In July this year, all the living riders who have raced in the Tour de France in its 100 editions will be in Paris for the finish. Will you take your place among them or do you feel your place is elsewhere?
America may not, to its occasional twinging regret, have a royal family, but for the past four decades it has had its own regal mother confessor.
When Michael Jackson, the former sprinter Marion Jones and countless less starry but no less remorseful Americans have sought public redemption, they have all turned to Oprah Winfrey. So it is entirely in keeping with this, if not noble then at least long-running tradition that for his first TV interview since the alleged doping scandal, Lance Armstrong has sent, not the Bat Signal, but the Oprah Winfrey Signal. It's a light that bathes the sky in a sudsy, soppy and occasionally saccharine glow.
Yet while Winfrey might not be known as the hardest hitting of interviewers (except, that is, when the interviewee is seeking forgiveness for a wrong they committed against Winfrey herself, as authors James Frey and Jonathan Franzen learned to their cost), to choose Winfrey at all is something of a statement from Armstrong.
News last weekend that Armstrong is "considering making a public confession that he used performance enhancing drugs" sounded to many like a confession in itself; the announcement that he is to kneel at the forgiving feet of Winfrey has the decided smack of a penitent man who has lost the bullying defiance that has long defined his attitude towards allegations of doping.
You don't go to Winfrey just to confess: you go to Winfrey to confess, cry and beseech public sympathy (and hopefully to pry open leeway to some kind of post-scandal career). Going by past examples, Winfrey probably won't be too tough on Armstrong, disappointing his angry former fans. But she will, guaranteed, wring tears out of him, however genuine they might be.
It is not difficult to fathom how Winfrey has carved this deified role for herself. The woman positively quivers with warmth and empathy. She's soft, but exudes a starry, even regal aura, which in turn flatters her guests who feel that, OK, they might have been strong-armed into riding the redemption train, but at least they're going first class with a billionaire.
Yet while many miserable masses have huddled on Winfrey's sofa, Armstrong's decision to turn to Winfrey is a huge coup for her. This interview will not be on the easily accessible TV channels where her hugely successful show ran for a quarter of a century until 2011, but on Winfrey's cable network, OWN, and her website.
The network has had a shaky first 18 months, with some Winfrey fans complaining they can't actually find it. But even if Winfrey's blue chip quality has suffered, she is still – when it comes to flawed celebrities – the first-class option and, arguably most importantly, the soft and safe choice.

Emmy Rossum and Kristen Bell participate in panels for their shows Shameless and House of Lies during the Showtime portion of the 2013 Winter TCA Press Tour held at the Langham Huntington Hotel on Saturday (January 12) in Pasadena, Calif.
The ladies were joined by their co-stars at the event: Shameless‘ William H. Macy and House of Lies‘ Don Cheadle, as well as Californication‘s Evan Handler and Pamela Adlon.
Shameless' Emmy Rossum: Fiona Will Quickly Get Bored of Jimmy
Fiona and Steve Jimmy may finally be together, but Shameless' most shameless couple will hit a rough patch this season when they realize that living on the straight and narrow may be too boring.
But that's the least of Fiona's worries this year, since there may not be a family for Fiona (Emmy Rossum) and Jimmy (Justin Chatwin) to take care of. TVGuide.com hit the set of the Showtime series to grill Rossum on what's in store this season, like why turkey basters are involved. Read below to find out!
Fiona and Steve/Jimmy are back together. What will that look like this season?
Emmy Rossum: You're definitely going to see the reality of how a relationship plays out, the trust struggle and the balance of power in the relationship. Who pays for what? Now that Jimmy's not a car thief anymore, how is he bringing in money? Is he going to have a regular-person job? When we come back for the start of the third season, we realize he's basically become Mr. Mom to a certain extent and Fiona is bored and misses the thieving, sexy, fast-car Jimmy, or Steve, as he was then. Lots of things have changed and they've settled into a life that Fiona thought she wanted, but she's not sure she wanted it like that.
What troubles will the family face this season?
Rossum: Halfway through the season, DFS comes and takes the kids away. There's been an anonymous call made to say that there's no parent living in the house and that when the father is there, he's an alcoholic and beats the kids. The kids are taken away and put in foster care temporarily until a hearing can be made. Fiona is scrambling and very afraid of what will happen if she can't either get Monica (Chloe Webb) to get her act together and help out or get Frank (William H. Macy) sober and ready to appear in court. This has probably happened once a couple years ago, but not to this extent.
The family had decided to cut Frank out of their lives. How hard is it for Fiona to then have to turn to him?
Rossum: Fiona usually blackmails Frank and is left with his problems. This time she really needs him and goes to him and says, "I need you to do this for me." Of course, he sees an in and uses it to his advantage. He says, "I'll only help you get the kids back if I can have my room back," so he's back in the house.
How is Fiona different from what we've seen in the past seasons?
Rossum: She definitely manages her stress and focuses on whatever is put right in front of her. But now that the kids are out of the house, she's a little more frazzled and she's a little out of her depth.
What will her relationship with Lip (Jeremy White) look like this season?
Rossum: Lip is living at the house and Mandy (Emma Greenwell) is living with him, so there's a bunch of Milkoviches living with us as well. Fiona is not crazy about them and what they stand for, so she and Mandy have a lot of friction. As Lip grows up and is smarter than Fiona in a lot of ways, definitely book smart, and though Fiona has been the head of the family longer, Lip is making better decisions than her in the first half of the season. Fiona is making some poor money decisions and we see her putting their livelihood on the line a couple times, so he's showing himself to be a little bit more capable.
How will Fiona be there to support Kev (Steve Howey) and V (Shanola Hampton) this season?
Rossum: Kev and V are trying to have a baby and will basically go to any extent to do it. IVF, which is so expensive, isn't an option for them, so they use turkey basters and anything else that you can possibly imagine.
Shameless returns Sunday at 9/8c on Showtime.

Starbucks among group claiming Patrick Dempsey unfairly charmed coffee chain auctioneers
Starbucks and other rivals are hoping to stop actor Patrick Dempsey’s group from completing its purchase of Tully’s coffee to save the Washington-based company from shutting down. They say that the charming actor, who plays Dr. Derek Shepherd on Grey’s Anatomy, managed to win even though he didn’t put in the highest bid.
Last month, Dempsey joined a group hoping to save Tully’s, which has locations in Washington and California. Then, last week, the group won the company with a $9.15 million bid, beating out Starbucks. The move was praised throughout Seattle, which was excited to see a local company survive.
However, The Wall Street Journal reports that Starbucks and the other losers aren’t going down without a fight. Starbucks and another company say that they put in $10.5 million bids, but they were ignored due to his "McDreamy" charm. They took their complaints to U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Seattle on Friday.
The attorneys of a Denver company that bid $4.3 million said that Dempsey’s group “may have impeded financing for qualified bidders and creates the appearance that its bid was favored.”
Still, Tully’s Chief Executive Scott Pearson has praised Dempsey for saving the company and 480 jobs.
“Many Tully’s customers strongly prefer, and paid for a Tully’s product, as opposed to Starbucks,” Pearson said in court documents Thursday, ushering the court to approve the deal.
According to The Seattle Times, Pearson also has to fight Tully’s founder Tom O’Keefe, who wanted to keep the auction going. In his Thursday filing, Pearson said that O’Keefe had no stake in the company’s actions.
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, which supplies Tully’s coffee, is also a player and could have delayed the proceedings if Starbucks won. However, it said that it would work with Dempsey AgriNature, another company that tried to buy Tully’s.
Coffee post ?
She only called off her engagement to Leandro Penna just 11 weeks ago.
But it appears Katie Price hasn't wasted any time in finding her third husband after getting engaged to stripper Kieran Hayler.
The mother-of-three, 34, announced on Sunday she had secretly accepted the 25-year-old's proposal on Christmas Day following a whirlwind romance.
She told The Sun: 'Kieran and I talked about marriage a few times and he proposed to me at Christmas over dinner.
'It just feels right. I know what people will say because I've heard it all before.
'But life is short so when something feels right, I just go for it.'
Katie's engagement comes just a month after the couple went public with their romance.
Both confirmed they were dating by posting photos of them kissing on their respective Twitter pages.
If she and Kieran actually make it down the aisle, he will be her third husband.
Katie was previously married to cagefighter Alex Reid, but dumped him in January 2011 after 11 months of marriage.
The couple married in Las Vegas after a whirlwind seven month on/off romance.
Katie and Alex started dating in summer 2009 - just two months after the model was heartbroken when first husband Peter Andre filed for divorce.
The model and Peter famously fell in love on-screen when they both starred in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004.
They quickly moved in together and Katie fell pregnant with their son Junior, who was born in June 2005, joined by their daughter Princess in June 2007.
The couple wed in a high-profile £2million ceremony, complete with pink Cinderella-style carriage, which was filmed for an ITV2 show.
As well as her two marriages, Katie has been engaged twice before to men she hasn't married - Leandro and former Gladiator Warren 'Ace' Furman.
Fifth time lucky i guess ....
You might not know this, but Ryan Gosling and Britney go way back. The two were cast members on The Mickey Mouse Club back in the day so it would really be fun if she and Ryan decided to try something now that she's looking for a rebound.
Maybe the thing Britney needs a guy way younger than her so she can feel like she's re-capturing her youth again. We all know Harry Styles likes older ladies! Plus, he's like today's Justin Timberlake, so it'll all just come around full circle.
It's no secret that Britney has had her share of substance abuse problems. Wouldn't it be great if she could get someone who understands what she went through? Russell Brand is just that guy. Plus, the two of them on the red carpet would just be funny together.
Britney and Will.i.am are currently working on her new album together, so really it would only make sense that the two sparked a relationship during their time together.
Now, if Britney decides that she wants to take things to a whole other crazy level, she can enjoy a lovely rebound relationship with Charlie Sheen. It'll be a game of who can out-crazy the other!
You've been waiting for this pick and here it is! What is Britney rebounded with her baby daddy and ex-husband, Kevin Federline? It would make all the headlines and maybe even be fun for their two kids. You never know!
Full list at the source.
Fabulous my ass. I cun't with this list! Flop after flop. I am still mourning Britwick. My poor bb's heart must be really broken at the moment. She needs to a)stay single and be an independent happy woman, b)find a guy outside the business or c)marry Madonna.
