The Word: Will Lisa Rinna become a Real Housewife?
I don’t know if I should feel proud of Lisa Rinna’s tenacity in attempting to stay in the public’s eye or sad. In any case, it looks like the TV personality is angling for a comeback, this time on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
Yes, Rinnna is aiming for a injected-lip-showdown on the Bravo show, apparently replacing Adrienne Maloof.
“Producers had initially asked Lisa to become a part of the show when it first launched, but she turned it down because she decided to do her own reality show for TV Land,” a source told RadarOnline.com. That show, “Harry Loves Lisa” wasn’t long for this world.
“Lisa might come across as very sweet, but she isn’t a pushover.”
Interesting choice, RHOBH. And good for you, Rinna. I always feel like she’s teetering between some form of mainstream television greatness, or appearing on the cover of a Sky Mall magazine. Maybe this is a step in the right direction?
Does Paltrow have better abs that Madge?
Gwyneth Paltrow thinks she has better abs than pal Madonna, but she doesn’t like to rub it in. During a series of hypothetical questions from Ireland’s Independent for a recent interview, Paltrow was asked if she would call Madonna and tell the singer that Paltrow has superior ab muscles, to which the “Iron Man 3″ star responded, “No, I don’t think I would. Why rub it in? Let’s face it.” After some consideration, though, she added, “I’ll Polaroid my abs and text them to her.”
I’m always in awe of this friendship: Can you imagine being close enough to Madonna to joke around about her like this? I live in fear for Paltrow just reading this item.
Maybe Bieber wasn’t so wrong after all
Maybe Justin Bieber wasn’t so off-base with his speculation that Anne Frank would’ve been a fan of his after all. Frank’s step-sister, Eva Schloss, is coming to the maligned pop star’s defense, calling the brouhaha over Bieber’s sentiments left in a guest book at the Anne Frank House “so childish,” according to the Telegraph. “She probably would have been a fan. Why not?” Schloss says. “He’s a young man and she was a young girl, and she liked film stars and music. They make a lot of fuss about everything that is connected with Anne Frank.”
Aniston on the ‘Friends’ rumors
Jennifer Aniston had only one response when she was informed about the rumor circulating online that NBC was bringing “Friends” back for one extra season: “Did Matthew Perry start that?” she asked Ellen DeGeneres. “Because he’s getting some good airtime on this show. I’ve been watching.” So where did this false bit of info happen? DeGeneres tried to clear things up for Aniston, saying, “It’s all over the Internet. There’s a big rumor. It started in Oklahoma.”
Buh-bye, Beckham accents
New research proves that David and Victoria Beckham are losing their working-class roots — or at least their working-class accents, according to the BBC. A study at the University of Manchester charting the Beckhams during the six years they lived in the United States finds that their blue collar brogues have dramatically diminished. For example, David previously dropped the “h” from “him” 80 percent of the time in 2007, but by 2013 it is down to 20 percent. All of this means that Posh Spice is in fact getting more posh. “We think this may be connected with the fact that she’s forged a different career as a widely respected fashion designer,” Naomi Proszynska, a linguistics expert involved in the study, says.
