Kat & Jesse sitting in a tree … again
About a month ago, it was announced that Kat Von D and Jesse James (cough … life ruiner … cough) had called off their engagement. Well, August 24 was quite a day for our tattooed beauty queen, with TLC announcing that it had decided to cancel Von D’s show, “L.A. Ink.”
In an interesting turn of events, apparently Kat Von D announced that she decided not to film “L.A. Ink” anymore before TLC decided to ax the show. According to “Us Weekly,” shortly after the announcement was made by TLC, Kat tweeted, “I love how me deciding not to continue doing LA Ink turns into [the show] being ‘cancelled.’ Thanks, TLC. Regardless of everything, I remain grateful.”
While this announcement put Von D back in the news, she also dragged ex Jesse James back into the limelight when the couple announced that the engagement is back on! Since it was allegedly the long-distance relationship that was a cause of the split, guess that’s not an issue anymore!
“Sometimes you are only given one chance in life,” James told People. “It was up to me to open my eyes and see it. That girl is my chance. I will never stop fighting and striving to hold on to her. Showing her how special she is, and how much I love her.” Isn’t that sweet.
Mr. & Mrs. Kim Kardashian
If you haven’t heard because you have been living under a rock, taken up coal mining or your iPad is in the shop, Kim Kardashian tied the knot Saturday! It’s a pretty huge deal … we all know how long she’s been waiting for this precious day to arrive. I think Jesus really must be a fan of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” because he’s given Kim a husband whose name is Kris with a K! Her new husband, NBA star Kris Humphries, should have no trouble fitting in with the family.
As expected, the wedding festivities began way before the actual date of the wedding. The beautiful couple and 75 of their closest friends and family attended a rehearsal dinner at Scarpetta in Beverly Hills on the eve of the big day. The entire Kardashian clan was in attendance — even Rob, who was wearing very expensive red sweatpants (Gasp!). Overall, Kim had a good evening. She let all of us know how great her night was via Twitter: “What a fun night w family & friends! Now I’m sleeping in late tomorrow!”
While there were extreme security measures lined up for the big day, that didn’t stop the media from heading over to the mansion where the nuptials took place. And truly, the entire public will eventually have the opportunity to feel like they were in attendance: E! is running a two-part, four-hour reality special Oct. 9 of the whole shindig.
Mile High Club reject
Okay, I completely understand when you have to pee and your choices are limited. Typically people pee in back alleys or the woods, but Gérard Depardieu (in case you haven’t heard of him, he won an Oscar for playing Cyrano de Bergerac) really set the bar up high for those that like to pee in public. He tried to get away with peeing on a plane — and not in the bathroom. Just to recap: according to E! Online, “Depardieu relieved himself on the carpet after his flight was delayed on Wednesday and the flight crew denied him entry to one of the restrooms.”
While Gérard hasn’t made a public statement yet, his friend is doing the dirty work. Edouard Baer, who was on the plane as well, offered up an explanation. From a statement translated by BBC, Bear said, “Gerard was upset at this and offered to clean up the mess; he has prostate problems and it was very worrying and humiliating for him. He was also stone-cold sober at the time. This is not the way he usually behaves.”
Alright, I have a few things to say. Traveling is stressful enough; I don’t need someone next to me peeing! There is also an apparatus called a catheter. You can Google it.
I also think that he will forever be banned from reaping the benefits of the Mile High Club (I would be so mad if I was him). I hear such benefits of being a card-carrying member include spending time in a nice lounge that is located at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport.
