The first family of reality TV the Kardashians, are in the middle of a health crisis with the only male Kardashian. Robert, the youngest of Kris Jenner’s children with the late Robert Kardashian Sr., just turned 28. He graduated from USC in 2009 with a business degree. His family’s show on E was wildly popular and in it’s second season when he graduated from college in May of 2009. Now all is not well in Rob Kardashian’s life, despite that international fame and adulation from throngs of fans, Rob’s life is now a dangerous course according to many insiders.
Many insiders of the family have said that Kardashian is going through a very tough time. Many credit his current dark days to the family’s less than favorable reputation. Rob had launched an exclusive sock line, called ‘Arthur George’ a few years back, the line is still being sold through it’s website and at some select stores. Circulating reports are that Rob is upset at the public backlash his family now regularly receives. Rob Kardashian took to his public media account ‘Instagram’ to publicly shame his older sister Kim Kardashian, 34. One insider publicly revealed that Rob has a very interesting sense of humor but none of his family members are laughing. Others are saying since Rob is battling depression that is the real reason he posted the hateful comment about his sister Kim, 34. Even though the 28 year old USC grad, hinted that his sister Kim was manipulative and a cause for the families horrible reputation. A source says that this latest post by Rob, is just his way of being himself, uploading videos and deleting them.
Rob gained a lot of weight in the last few years, so much that he barely appears on the family reality show. A year ago he appeared on a TV show saying he was determined to lose weight and he had a whole new lease on life. He said during that interview that he distanced himself from his famous family and went to Florida. He said “I’ve just been so not myself, I don’t really want to film. I’ve just been focused on this (losing weight). Even with my businesses, I have so much going on right now, that I want to focus on just being myself and being happy. I wasn’t doing things that I was supposed to do. Like birthdays, and my little sister’s sweet 16. I don’t want to let people see me unhappy, because that’s not who I really am. I’m really happy, so I’m going to lose 60 pounds, because that’s where I should be. I mean I gained 60 pounds in the last year, and that’s like crazy.” The host reminded him that he in the past he said that he could take or leave being on the show that made his family a household name. Rob said” Yeah I’m more like the low key one, I really don’t care, the thing with our show is it brings on a lot of opportunities, and we get to work with our family.” From all appearances from the few recent pictures that have surfaced of Rob, he has yet to lose any weight, and looks as though he may have gained a few more pounds.
Actress and Director Angelina Jolie, 39 has had some surgery to prevent cancer, husband Brad Pitt, 50, remains supportive. Jolie shocked fans and onlookers two years ago when it was reported that the star and mother of 6 young children had a double mastectomy. Jolie has explained that she has a simple blood test that revealed she has a predisposition for developing cancer. The test revealed she had an 87% chance of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Both her mother, grandmother and aunt died of cancer.
She became known as a advocate around the world for spreading the information that women who were high risk had other options for survival. It has been reported that Jolie again has had surgery to reduce the risk of other forms of cancer. Jolie very recently had her ovaries and Fallopian tubes removed in the hopes that she has much less chance of contracting the deadly disease. Jolie told the New York Times that recent tests revealed she was in the early stages of ovarian cancer. She had the option of waiting to remove her organs or doing it immediately, she chose to immediately remove them.
Before she completely made the decision she called husband, actor Brad Pitt who was in France. He was on a plane immediately to be by his wife’s side as she made the decision to remove her ovaries and Fallopian tubes. The down side of having such a surgery is the onset of early menopause. Jolie said that was a very small trade off when you compare what the other outcome could possibly be. Jolie wanted to make things clear regarding options for preventative cancer. She said some women elect to take birth control pills and that in some cases has been shown to be successful in keeping cancer at bay. However both Eastern and Western doctors have told her to get the most protection possible would be to remove such organs. Doctors also advised her that having the surgery should be ten years before the earliest onset of cancer was in her family members. Her mother French actress Marcheline Bertrand was diagnosed with ovarian cancer when she was 49.
Jolie revealed she had the procedure last week, and now has a clear patch that has bio-identical estrogen, to help deal with the menopause effects and maintain a hormonal balance. Interestingly Jolie elected to keep her uterus intact, because her family has no history of cancer of the uterus. Jolie has readily admitted that it’s virtually impossible to remove all the cancer risks, and she is still at risk for cancer, she said she is taking proactive measures in boosting her immune system. She believes doing everything possible in a natural way in addition to the surgeries is the best possible thing she can do. Jolie said she is doing this for her children and her family. She wants to be alive to see her children grown and prosper, she said she wants to be around to meet her grandchildren. Pitt has supported all of her choices in her ongoing fight against Cancer.
County singing superstar Jason Aldean, 38, married former American Idol participant Brittany Kerr,27. The couple had been engaged for six months prior to their wedding in Mexico over the weekend. The two were first spotted converting with each other in Hollywood in 2012, when Aldean was still married to his wife of 11 years, Jessica Ussery.
The two were photographed kissing each other. Aldean’s wife Jessica filed for divorce shortly after the kissing pictures surfaced. Although Aldean at the time tried to dismiss the pictures as just the result of too many drinks at a bar. He went so far as to take to his public Facebook page “I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself. I’m not perfect and I’m sorry for disappointing you guys.” At the time he implied that he was trying to work on his marriage and fix his problems.
Aldean and Ussery were High School sweethearts. They started dating when they were both 17. They would get married on August 4, 2001. The couple had two girls together, Keeley 12, and Kendyl 7. Ussery was very active in managing Aldean’s career. She made all the business calls and arranged his music gigs.
Fans have not been forgiving when it came to Aldean’s cheating. They couldn’t get on social media fast enough to voice their strong disapproval to Aldean’s cheating, and his claims that it only happened once. The new couple Aldean and Kerr kept their relationship and subsequent engagement very quiet, perhaps fearing reprisals from the public.
In a joint statement released Saturday, Aldean said “This is the best day ever. I’ve got my girls here, my friends, my family, this is the best day ever.” His two daughters with Ussery were part of the wedding party. Kerr for her part said “Today has been the best day of my life. I feel like the luckiest woman in the world to have been able to marry my best friend.”
Lots of friends and family of the couple were present at the Mexican nuptials. One notable guest was A & E star Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty. Some other notable country singers, Luke Bryan and Eric Church were also present. Aldean has achieved huge success in the Country music industry with five platinum records. He’s had some cross over appeal too, with his Kelly Clarkson duet ‘Don’t you want to stay.” He’s a long list of country chart toppers, like the party anthem ‘1994’.
He’s even had success merging hip hop and country. He collaborated with hip hopper Ludicrous with ‘Dirt Road Anthem’. He started playing the guitar after his father bought him one when he was 13. Of the cheating scandal he told Robin Roberts of ABC, he went out when he wasn’t happy in his marriage. He said he let his guard down a bit, and one thing led to another. He said that sort of thing is hard enough to deal with privately but to have it blown up the way it did was at times unbearable. He said of the infamous night in question, he was photographed, leaving the bar without Kerr but with friends. Time will tell if this second marriage, will be happily ever after.
Bobbi Kristina Brown Daughter of Singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown Moved To An Atlanta Rehab Facility!
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of the late singer Whitney Houston and Hip hop singer Bobby Brown sadly continues to languish in a coma. Doctors at Emery Hospital in Atlanta have determined that according to hospital protocol the 22 year old can no longer be a patient in the hospital. After being hospitalized for almost 2 months Brown shows no signs of improvement.
Brown was found face down unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home on January 31. Her boyfriend/husband Nick Gordon allegedly found Brown and was seen administering CPR when first responders arrived at the home. There are varying reports as to Brown’s exact medical condition. Reliable sources have indicated that she is now in a coma, after being in a medically induced coma. Doctors have also theorized that Brown’s brain was most likely deprived of oxygen long enough for a recovery to be almost impossible at this point.
Browns family including her father Bobby Brown have been in the hospital with Brown since she was brought there nearly 2 months ago. They have repeatedly asked the public to pray for Brown’s recovery. Brown’s mother, the late singer Whitney Houston,48, was found face down in a bath tub at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel in California on February 11, 2012. An autopsy determined that Houston died of a combination of drowning and heart disease brought on by acute drug abuse. Houston had high levels of cocaine and alcohol in her system at the time of her death. Bobby Kristina was Houston’s only child and only 18 at the time of her mother’s death.
Nick Gordon who was raised during part of his youth by Houston was considered by the family to be Kristina’s half brother. Brown and Gordon have publicly stated that they are married, however Brown’s father Bobby says that the two never legally married. Friends have told news sources, that Bobbi
Kristina has been spiraling out of control in the last few years. She has been basically sleeping all day and doing drugs at night, and blowing through thousands of dollars in short amounts of time.
Nick Gordon is said to currently be in a rehab facility, at the urging of TV’s Dr. Phil. Gordon appeared on the Dr. Phil show last week. The response to Gordon’s appearance on the show gathered mixed responses. The police in Atlanta are currently investigating the sequence of the events that lead to Brown being in the bathtub. The reports are that Bobby Kristina was without Oxygen for 5 to 8 minutes. Gordon has never visited Bobby Kristina at the hospital, he claims it’s because her relatives have refused to allow him in. Gordon has said publicly that he was never adopted by Houston and he was never Bobby’s blood brother. Gordon appeared on the Dr. Phil show so that his side could be told. He felt that he was being vilified in the press. The doctor said on the air that Gordon deteriorated so badly that he needed to immediately be in rehab. It has been reported that the Browns will remove Kristina’s breathing tube in the next few days to see how she responds. Story developing………….

Sefano Gabbana said” I think in a different way from Domenico, but not by this, I don’t insert to him. You know the tolerance.” Speaking in broken English the pair sat down with CNN to try to put a positive spin on the remarks. He said ” I believe in in vitro, for example I don’t have anything negative to say about that.” He basically said he supports it, and that Dolce’s viewpoint is different then his, but it’s a personal choice.
Gabbana added “I think today we don’t need to support or not support. You think what you think, I think today there are too many classifications, it’s a personal decision.” The singer Elton John did not agree, he took to his Instagram account and said” How dare you refer to my beautiful children as synthetic.” He went on “I shall never wear Dolce Gabbana ever again.” John also has called on his fans, friends and family to boycott the desng, and not to allow shoppers in where the line is sold.
The designers have said they have a right to speak without being attacked. They both said “You are born to a mother and a father, and that’s the way it should be.” Now they are singing a different tune, downplaying their original statements they said. Sitting down for an interview Dolce said ” I don’t boycott Elton John I love him it doesn’t matter what he said.” Both men are openly gay as is John as is the designers. Gabana said ” We love gay couples, we love gay adoptions, we love everything to do with gays.’ Domenco expressed his private point of view, his own opinion.” Dolce next said ” I am sitting here talking to you, I’m Sicilian I am part of my company. I believe in the tradition of family, why are those beliefs not good anymore.”
The couple are very prominent in the gay community and had been a couple until 2000. Other celebrities around the world have being speaking out about the commentary. Former American Idol runner up Clay Aiken weighed in on the controversy too. He said, “I was fortunate enough to become a father with a great friend of mine through IVF. We had a wonderful non snythetic child, who is really wonderful and will be turning 7 this month. We are both proud of our child and all the possibilities in the future.”

He said ” It came early, when I got the gig, I heard my brother’s voice in my head saying don’t screw it up. I thought I would arrive early and get the accent in place. I want to thank an amazing dialect coach called Jesse Drake who also works with others in the cast who come on teh show. She’s amazing she writes it phonetically. It looks like gibberish. It’s funny when I go to dinner parties and see that they are drunk, I had them the lines from her and say read this.”

Actor Jared Padalecki and his actress wife Genevieve Cortese happily raise their two sons in Austin, Texas. Both have said they prefer to live a normal happy life away from Hollywood. The couple have just celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary. Padalecki,32, is the star of the ultra popular TV show, ‘Supernatural’. Padalecki was driven to life as a performer early in life. In high school he was an accomplished member of his high school’s Forensic team, winning many awards and was a candidate for the prestigious Presidential Scholars Program. He was slated to attend the University of Texas, but he elected to use his excellent orator skills in Hollywood.
He found success quickly in Hollywood by winning the talent competition show ‘Claim to Fame’ in 1999. He was able to procure an agent early on, and started a journey of success shortly after that. He had several roles in TV shows and films. He was cast in the starring role as Sam Winchester on the CW show ‘Supernatural’ in 2005. The show is wildly popular with a huge fan base, and is in it’s tenth season.
He met his wife Genevieve Cortese, 34, when she guest stared on the show in the 4th season. The two married in Sun Valley, Idaho, in 2010 after a whirlwind courtship.

Padalecki talked about the journey his character Sam has been on for the last ten years. He was asked about Sam having a brother that is demon, and how that compares to the other drama Sam has dealt with in the last 10 seasons. He said ” Well Sam doesn’t know, at first Sam was in the dungeon trying to summon Crowley when Crowley was actually there with Dean. So Sam got back to Dean’s room and Dean was gone. So starting out with the next show, Sam looks for his brother, because he does know he gone, but doesn’t know where he is gone to.
When Sam does find out what happens to his brother, he’s not pissed at Dean, but he just wants to fix the situation. He made a promise to Dean to try to repair things, so he going to do whatever he has to do, to fix things.” Padalecki, was also asked about playing different characters on the show, which he has to do from time to time. He said “It’s very challenging, just when I’m comfortable with a character there is a new one to develop and play, so it keeps me on my toes. It’s very challenging as an actor, You don’t just want to do another voice or something silly like that, because often times that’s not enough. Whenever Sam has to go through some alteration, I pretend I’m auditioning for another show and another character. It’s a lot of fun but at the same time, it’s extremely challenging. It can be nerve racking at times, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
