    Leonardo DiCaprio just returned from a lazy few days in the Mediterranean with his gorgeous 'angel' Toni Garrn.

    But the 38-year-old actor's holiday indulging was definitely over as he took to the streets of New York on Monday for a workout on a Citi Bike.

    Leonardo was dressed for his cardio sweat fest in army-green cargo shorts, a blue hoodie and blue slip-on trainers with snowy white athletic socks.

    At last, a compelling reason to watch preseason football.

    You never know when a sideline reporter is going to take a pass upside the head.

    That’s what happened to Fox’s Pam Oliver during the Indianapolis Colts-New York Giants game Sunday night when Colts backup-backup Chandler Harnish uncorked a pass that went straight to her cheek.

    Shortly after the game, Harnish apologized to Oliver, who was unhurt.

    The star, who announced that she was pregnant with her fifth child in June, is about to add two babies to her growing brood.

    "I'm having twins and I couldn't be more excited. I was completely shocked. I had no idea. It was a natural conception, but twins do run in the family, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised," she told E! News.

    "I can't believe I am going to be a mom to six children. It's going to be very busy but it's a dream come true." The 35-year-old star confirmed she's pregnant with her fifth child on the season finale of her Bravo show Don't Be Tardy, after she took over a dozen (!) at-home pregnancy tests.

    But when it came to revealing the gender of her bun in the oven, she opted to remain mum until it was the right time. Last month she tweeted a photo of herself proudly showed off her growing baby bump.

    And while the soon-to-be new mama looks sensational, she admitted to succumbing to her newfound pregnancy cravings.

    "Can we talk about the fact all I want to eat is chocolate!!!! I have always had a sweet tooth but geez!! Not 20 times a day!!!", she tweeted.

    Kim and Kroy already have two sons together, Kroy Jr., 2, and Kash, 1. Kim admitted on her show that she'd love to have a little girl.

    "I personally would love a little girl because Brielle's going to be 18 soon, Ariana's six years away from being 18," Zolciak said after learning of her pregnancy, adding, "and I'll be in a house with three boys possibly and Kroy? That's a life of four-wheelers and football."

    "This is it though, buddy," she joked to Kroy. "You better hope you get a little girl, because this is it."





    Melissa Discusses Her Confrontation with Jan And Penny!


    Melissa Gorga attended an event hosted by Teresa Giudice for her hair care line on last night's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and while there, she was confronted by Jan and Penny over allegations that she had cheated. In this week's Bravo blog, Melissa is opening up about what happened between them.

    "Teresa and I had already talked about the rumors and she told me to just 'ignore it.' So I was surprised when she called and suggested that her launch party would be the 'perfect time' to confront the people that have been spreading these lies about me," Melissa wrote in her blog. "It was a long time since we've been together as a family and supporting one another. I knew it was going to be a big night for her and I didn't understand why she even allowed them to come in the first place."

    Since the night was in honor of her new hair care line, one would have assumed that Teresa would have wanted things to go well so it was definitely an odd call. Plus, this wasn't some sort of situation in which the ladies were looking to smooth things over. This was a downright confrontation with ugly accusations made. Why would Teresa want her sister-in-law to be attacked at her event? And even if she didn't think it would go that way, why would she not put a stop to it once it did?

    "We need to do what Dr. V. suggested and be a united front and back each other up," Melissa continued of her ongoing hardships with Teresa. "In that regard, it was a missed opportunity. I would have loved it if Teresa said something to back me up."

    It definitely would have been nice to see that. If Teresa had taken that opportunity to reach out in that way, it would have done wonders for their relationship. Instead, she's once again in the background of an attack on Melissa which makes her look as guilty as the rest.









    Lea Black’s Major Plastic Surgery Revealed! Facelifts, Botox & More!


    With The Real Housewives of Miami back on the air, the women are back in the spotlight and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that one of the ladies is not telling the truth about her plastic surgery history.

    During Watch What Happens Live on Aug. 12, Lea Black had an open conversation about getting some plastic surgery done to her neck — but it turns out that isn’t the only work that Lea has had done.

    RadarOnline.com can exclusively report that Lea has undergone the knife for more than just her neck. She has had several face-lifts and has even had Botox and fillers.

    “While she’s doing all the facelifts, I do know that she gets tons of Botox and fillers,” a source tells RadarOnline.com.

    However, Lea openly lies about the procedures. “And she says she doesn’t because she has a skincare line,” the source explains. So what do people who know the Housewife think about Lea’s dishonesty?

    “They laugh,” the source says. It’s clear to them that Lea has had work done to her face. “She can’t close her eyelids,” the source says. “It’s really weird.”

    The source also shares that people who know Lea joke that she needs to have more plastic surgery done on the rest of her body.

    “Everyone talks about the dramatic difference and often comment on why she doesn’t fix her saggy boobs she always has hanging out without a bra,” the source says.

    Lea would not offer comment on this story when RadarOnline.com reached out.

    I know what you are thinking: “How can I be Farrah Abraham’s Sugar Daddy/Mama?” Because that’s what everyone in America (and probably beyond) is thinking right now, and thankfully Farrah has provided an easy way for us all to shower her with gifts.

    She shared a linked to her Amazon Wish List where you can purchase anything from a $20 pair of sequined booty shorts to a $1500 bookcase. Farrah, but has bragged about being a millionaire, has included a number of affordable lingerie, costumes, monokinis, and gifts for Sophia on her wish list, but if you really want to splurge you can not only buy that bookcase, but other furniture including a $1300 dining room table, and two different $600-700 range chandeliers. Farrah also picked out a few dresses ranging from $600-900.

    Farrah tweeted the link yesterday with the message: “I love my #GIFTS Thank you Fans xo.”

    In this post-modern era of horror, we have all types of horror films to choose from. Whether from an original Slasher film to a paranormal cinematic feature; it’s so hard to know where and what movies started it. So instead of thinking of watching a horror remake, sequel, prequel or reboot, here we land a list of horrors that changed the genre to what we see today or will never see one like it again.

    Here are 10 great horror films that changed the genre.


    6. Nightmare on Elm Street



    Plot:Events of kids being murdered in their sleep, recalling seeing a half burned man with knives for fingers in their dreams. Nancy, a teenager experiencing the same symptoms decides to face against him.

    How it changed horror: The complete original of many sequels and prequels that started a legend. It started a trend, the first horror film to feature the discussion of a well known human conscious: dreaming, fantasy and reality. Also starring a little known role of a now well known actor Johnny Depp; this film began the ever lasting trend of the slasher, Freddie Krueger.


    5. Rosemary’s Baby



    Plot: A pregnant woman who fears she’s bearing the child of the devil himself. As she ventures on, she discovers the father is sacrificing the baby for a barbaric ritual.

    How it changed horror: Roman Polanski enters horror with a satanic turn as Mia Farrow displays the vulnerable woman. It changed horror by it’s alluring yet cringing scenes, dialogue and character depth. Today it is known as one of the most recognizable landmark horror films in the genre.


    4. Alien



    Plot: A commercial towing spaceship crew are awakened on their way home by the ship’s computer of a nearby unknown planetoid. As they venture out to see what it is, they’re in for the trip of their lives.

    How it changed horror: Ridley Scott introduces one of the most scariest films in history and one of the most kickass female characters today. Sigourney Weaver enters her first time movie role with one of the most finest horror performances today that blasted her career. This film makes every viewer jump, shake and shiver with all the shocking horror this monumental cinematic feature displays.


    3. Texas Chainsaw Massacre



    Plot: A group of friends who fall innocent tortured victims to a cannibalistic family.

    How it changed horror: Tobe Hooper swoops in slasher/murderer genre to what it is considered one of the greatest horrors of all cinema history. Here started another unleashed legend of sequels, remakes, a prequel, comic books and even videogames. It’s credited for the slasher elements of power tools for murder and the now famous “skin mask “. Tobe Hooper reinvented slasher horror with one of the most distinguishable characters of all time.


    2. Halloween



    Plot: In 1963 in a small town, 6 year old Michael Myers murders his elder sister. 15 years later, he escapes a psychiatric facility and returns home on the run for blood.

    How it changed horror: Today in the box office, it became one of the most profitable independent films. John Carpenter has influenced a significant slasher legend of imitators, sequels and reboots. But it’s little graphic violence and gore showed itself as a cultural and historical significance. Critics notify this film from it’s sadism, misogyny, empathy to the villain, immorality from youth in 1970s America, drugs and survival. This does not use murder weapons, cannibalism or dreams; just an original monumental slasher.


    1. Psycho



    Plot: A secretary named Marion (Janet Leigh) who ends up finding herself in a secluded motel after stealing money from a colleague; and finds herself in the hands of the motel’s owner/manager Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins).The aftermath changes both lives forever.

    How it changed horror: Before Psycho, in horror it was just book adaptations like Dracula and Frankenstein. Nobody would dare to pass that limited genre, until the great Alfred Hitchcock changed horror and film forever. After his 1980 death, there was 3 sequels, a remake, a TV spin-off and a TV series. But this film INVENTED slasher horror. He made one of the greatest films in history, blasting Anthony Perkins to stardom and typecast. This film is historically monumental, original, shocking and the mother/father to all horrors I have presented you today and more.

    Britney Spears is not a happy lady!

    The singer apparently went berserk when she heard that her ex-husband Kevin Federline married his baby mama Victo­ria Prince in a top secret ceremony at a Las Vegas hotel suite.



    “When Britney was told the news, she screamed uncontrollably,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.

    “Then she collapsed in tears. The wedding caught her by surprise. She wasn’t invited and she didn’t even get a call from Kevin to let her know he was marrying Victoria.


    “Britney had to hear about it from one of K-Fed’s friends after the ceremony was over.

    “It was hard for Britney because she’s long suffered from the delusion that she and Kevin would one day get back together and raise their two boys (Sean, 7, and Jayden, 6).”

    Britney and Kevin finalized their divorce back in 2007, but the star always hope they’d reconcile — even after she got engaged to her agent Jason Trawick in December 2011, said the insider.

    Britney has since been dating 27-year-old David Lucado, a former bartender and insurance agent who now works for a Los Ange­les legal firm.

    Kevin and Victoria met nearly five years ago and have a 2-year-old daughter, Jordan.

    “Even after Jordan was born, Britney held onto her fantasy of rec­onciliation with Kevin,” said the insider. “But the wedding has crushed her, and she’s angry that she definitely won’t be getting Kevin back.”

    Britney also finds it hard to ac­cept that the couple is essentially raising her boys.

    “Sean and Jayden even call Victoria ‘Mommy,’ and it sets Britney blazing with anger,” said the source. “She’s called them up screaming about it.”

    If you’ve never seen “Bob’s Burgers,” the particulars alone might keep you from tuning in when its fourth season begins on Aug. 25. It’s an animated show on Fox, for starters, sandwiched between banality (“Family Guy”) and toothlessness (“The Simpsons”), and the notion of a half-hour comedy based on the antics of a nuclear family is far from cutting edge. There’s a short-tempered but harmless father — check — a loving and indulgent mother — check — and three kids, one of whom is endearingly simple, one who mostly plays the straight man, and one whose manic and precocious energy precipitates many an adventure. (Check, check, check.) The show is ostensibly about the Belcher family’s struggles to raise their children while running a business that turns a slim profit. But underneath the unremarkable exterior beats one of the most fiercely liberal hearts steering any show on television today. “Bob’s Burgers” is a Trojan horse full of sexual progressivism and radical acceptance for trans prostitutes, hell-raising bikers, geriatric swingers and awkward adolescent girls. If given the chance, it will subvert your expectations at every turn.

    That includes exceptions of how many “laughs” a comedy should contain. It’s exceedingly rare for “Bob’s Burgers” to move its audience into belly-aching, gasping-for-breath territory. While the writing is witty, intelligent and original, you may not LOL at all in the course of a single episode. (Light chuckling is usually my response.) There’s a gentleness to “Bob’s” humor, even when dealing with anuses and street workers. And in a climate where so many jokes hinge on cruelty and propping up existing power structures (see: the rape joke debate, the bigoted rants of Michael Richards and Tracy Morgan, the proud racism of the Jeselnik Offensive) a punch line that doesn’t go for the “outrageous” or “offensive” almost makes one do a double take. Every line here is crafted with loving attention to do service to the actor who utters it; all the characters are richly realized and treated with respect, both by the writers and those who provide the voices. And all characters are sincerely weird, eccentric in a way that somehow maintains a semblance of believability.



    Take Mr. Fishoedor, the hamburger joint’s mellow, eye-patch-wearing landlord, whose funniest quality is his inability to discern or care about how children should be treated. “I think all kids like bullets,” he confirms to a gun-happy old flame in one typically confident moment. And his response to finding the kids running a casino underneath Bob’s restaurant is sheer delight: “Looks like you’re in trouble … because I’m a gambling man!” Then there’s Gene, the music-loving only son who is shameless, perpetually positive, and embraces most of his siblings’ suggestions with minimal resistance. When Louise, the wild youngest child, tells Bob “it’s time to focus on your good daughter — Gene,” Gene obligingly replies, “I’m pretty!” (In a later episode, he briefly daydreams of posing nude while another man sketches him, à la “Titanic.”) He happily pees in the sink, can entertain himself for hours with a tambourine, and doesn’t bat an eyelash when his mother shares a dream she had about breast-feeding him again, only he had a long white beard. (“That should be our next Christmas card,” he says.)

    The real triumph in this fantastic cast of characters, though, comes in the form of Tina, the deadpan, excruciatingly awkward oldest daughter. While Louise, voiced with manic genius by Kirsten Schaal, is the most reliably funny character, Tina’s story lines are among the most memorable for how perfectly they capture the sex-crazed innocence characterizing the transition from kid to teen. In “Bad Tina,” one of the series’ best episodes, Tina daydreams about touching the butts of her classmates, even going as far to as imagine a butt-touching threesome, and wakes up early before school to write erotic fan fiction as well as erotic friend fiction. (In her mind, she directs: “Zeke, don’t talk anymore. Tammy, spill that. Jimmy Jr., mop it up with your pants.”) Yet in the midst of her heightened awareness of the bodies of her peers, she’s still attached to her porcelain horse (“Horselain”) and tolerates her mother singing her self-affirming songs without complaint. She’s not a girl, not yet a woman — self-conscious enough to notice the “huge” single hair on her upper lip, yet unable to bring herself to cut it. “It’s beautiful. You’re beautiful,” insists her mother. “You are beautiful,” confirms her dad.

    The sweet expressions of the Belchers’ boundless love for their children are one of the many reasons to keep watching. Bob sometimes can’t help himself from revealing his discomfort or confusion with a family member’s behavior, but there’s a theme of acceptance running throughout the show that dissolves almost any character’s initial judgment. And while Bob’s wife, Linda, occasionally lays down mom-law, her default mode is one of relentless affirmation. Of Gene’s Queen Latifah Halloween outfit she enthuses, “So specific and political, I love it,” after she praises Tina for being a mummy. (“Sexy!”) In anticipation of receiving her first kiss, Tina tells the family, “When I kiss Jimmy Jr., you’ll all be kissing him with me.” “I’m first,” literal-minded Gene says, not wanting sloppy seconds. “I’ll go last, I’m fine with that,” Linda says, adorably. She’s the most lovable mom on TV.

    Ultimately what makes “Bob’s Burgers” so special is its conviction that most people are good, most problems are minor, and other folks’ weirdness can be taken in stride. Gene’s mild gender play, for instance, is a source of comedy but never mocked, just as Tina’s burgeoning sexuality is funny, but never pathologized or minimized. The two older children are undoubtedly experiencing the first pangs of sexual awakening as opposed to some type of puppy love or platonic attachment; “my pants feel funny!” Gene says when he encounters a voluptuous female ventriloquist’s dummy (who happens to be a manatee). Tina’s wish to be kissed by her crush at her birthday party is taken up as a cause by her entire family, not treated as a shameful or disconcerting desire. And when Bob discovers that his father-in-law has a balloon fetish, he does his best to remain supportive and helpful, and encourages his father-in-law to share his turn-on with his wife. In other words, sexual urges are regarded as harmless quirks as opposed to opportunities for punishment or humiliation. There’s nothing new about the standard, feel-good ending to most half-hour comedies, where all conflicts are resolved and all non-villain participants are satisfied.  But the tender, live-and-let-live nonchalance guiding the silliness of “Bob’s Burgers” makes it a welcome addition to a tired formula.

    Here is another essay that deals with the topic better that this article does and is worth a read also.

    According to my sources, Saoirse Ronan has passed on the role of Wanda Maximoff, The Scarlet Witch, in The Avengers: Age of Ultron despite being, at some point or another, Joss Whedon‘s top pick for the role.

    Unfazed, however, Whedon and Marvel then moved their attentions on to Elizabeth Olsen.


    I always feel awkward reporting on these “second choice” moments, but then I remember how Harrison Ford probably hasn’t ever woken up in a cold sweat from a Tom Selleck nightmare and I feel a bit better about it.

    Olsen is a great choice, I think, because she’s a pretty good choice for anything. The girl can act, she’s got charisma and she’s smart.

    Now, the concept of Wanda that Whedon is playing with can’t incorporate the part of her comic book history where – surprise! – Magneto was revealed to be her father. He’s got everything else to play with, however, not to mention whatever he can invent himself.

    As I understand it, Olsen would need to adopt a “European” accent for the role, but that’s not such a big deal. Tougher will be standing her ground amidst an established cast of top-drawer actors and crowd pleasers that everybody in the audience already loves from the first Avengers film, not to mention their own pictures.

    But then, she’s pretty darn likeable, and it’s reputedly a real scene-stealer of a part, so…


    In short, I think it’s coming up roses for the Scarlet Witch. Now let’s see if Olsen ends up officially signed on…

    Production on The Avengers: Age of Ultron should kick off in the first few weeks of 2014. We’ll next be seeing Olsen in Kill Your Darlings – for a few scenes anyway – Oldboy, Therese, and Godzilla.

    Oscar Pistoriuswill go on trial on March 3, accused of premeditated murder in the death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. At a hearing Monday, prosecutors indicted Pistorius in the Valentine's Day shooting death. Pistorius has been charged with planned and premeditated murder, which comes with a mandatory sentence of life behind bars.

    The indictment says "the accused did unlawfully and intentionally kill a person." Pistorius also was indicted for allegedly violating South Africa's firearms control act.

    In South Africa, people can possess ammunition only if they're licensed to own a gun, and their ammunition must be specific to that weapon. Pistorius has acknowledged storing ammunition for a gun his father owned.

    Steenkamp would have turned 30 on Monday.

    The indictment follows the completion of the police investigation into the case.

    The double amputee track star killed the woman he calls the love of his life in his home. He denies the murder charge and says he mistook her for a home invader.

    The first phase of the trial will take place in March, but the entire trial could take place at various times across a year or more because of potential motions and postponements along the way.

    In the indictment, the prosecutors included a list of more than 100 witnesses the state might call. The Pistorius legal team has not released a witness list.

    The police investigation team "is convinced that the accused has a charge to answer," a police statement said last week.

    RIP Reeva

    Drag king Landon Cider tells MTV News that lots of performers will be recreating Gaga's look this weekend before Sunday's VMAs.



    Lady Gaga has given her fans two for the price of one. Within days, she released both the lo-fi lyric video for "Applause" and its trippy, surreal, over-the-top official video.

    The "Applause" music video was released on Monday, the same day she confirmed her opening performance slot at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday, August 25. Kristine Carr, who plays the Peter Pan drag king, Landon Cider, in the "Applause" lyric video gave MTV News her take on the over-the-top official "Applause" video.



    "I thought it was amazing. It's everything that she kind of always stands for. It's fashion. It's pop. It's culture. It's theater. She really is staying true to herself and her style. [It's] very unique, very artistically designed and [has] storytelling, lots of characters, lots of looks," she said. "You see a sincerity behind her too. I really enjoyed it."

    So, how does the Inez & Vinoodh-directed clip compare to the lyric video? "She's really showcasing entertainers. She's showing many diverse styles of entertainers and how we're all doing it for the applause," Carr said.

    Carr then recalled her experience of meeting Gaga in L.A. earlier this month when she filmed the lyric video at Mickey's nightclub. "She was really humble. When she joined me on stage for a little bit, she whispered that she loved me. She was sincerely enjoying the performance, interacting with all of us being really involved but as a professional knowing how to stay away," she said. "She was really nice and kind of quiet but had those occasional one-liner jokes."

    Carr notes that she thinks there might be a lot of Mother Monster lookalikes hitting the scene this weekend. "I can see all the drag queens going to Home Depot with a list of things and black gardening gloves are at the top of that list for that costume right there," she said, in reference to what co-director Inez van Lamsweerde called a "glove-kini.""I see every costume being created. I see that really iconic [clown] makeup that she's creating for the whole album, that avant garde look. I see that going to be hitting every drag stage everywhere. I think every look from that video; you're going to see drag queens across the country and across the world really [try those out]."

    "Applause" is the lead single off Gaga's November 11 ARTPOP release. Fans can watch the video on repeat until she takes the stage on Sunday at the VMAs to perform the song live from Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Katy Perry, Kanye West, Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake and more will also perform during the show.

    Carr has one request for Gaga before Sunday's VMA performance. "I would like to see Peter Pan make an appearance on stage with her. That's probably on the top of my list of things I'm hoping to see," she joked, before recalling her favorite Gaga-themed VMA moments.

    "The bleeding on stage [in 2009]. I think, theatrically, was my favorite. What a powerful message in that. 'Paparazzi' and the whole bleeding on stage was important visually," she said. "But as a drag king my heart goes out to that [2010 Jo Calderone] performance. It opened a lot of eyes to the world that it's OK for a woman to dress as a man and perform like that. He was committed to that character and I thought that was evolutionary."

    She's also begging fans on twitter to cheat Vevo by watching the music video multiple times.
