The new Lifetime original movie ‘Anna Nicole’ premiered June 29 and it was crazy, wild fun — check out our five most unforgettable moments from the movie!
Anna Nicole is the latest Lifetime movie to center around a real-life figure. Agnes Bruckner stars as the very troubled and eccentric Anna Nicole Smith, who was made famous from her time as a Playboy playmate and marriage to a Texas billionaire who was old enough to be her grandfather. In a movie that chronicles the sex symbol’s rollercoaster ride of drugs, alcohol, and tragedy, there were multiple moments we just couldn’t forget. Check out our five favorite parts from the movie — but beware of MAJOR SPOILERS!
5 Memorable Moments From ‘Anna Nicole’
1. Anna’s Crazy Antics
Anna flashing her boobs to a crowd of people seems tame compared to everything else she did in the movie. From pole-dancing on a football field in front of her son — yes, you read that correctly — to getting wasted while pregnant, Anna sure lived ‘adventurously.’ In the beginning of the movie, we heard a voice-over from Anna that pretty much sums up the whole film: “She’ll be buried as an international celebrity and balls-to-the-wall party girl.” If we didn’t know that before watching this movie, we definitely know that now.
2. Future Visions Of Anna
Do we need to call Ghost Hunters? Back when Anna was still Vickie Lynn, we saw visions of an older Anna in a dynamite red dress with cleavage for days. She practically drew the Anna Nicole Smith out of an innocent Vickie Lynn. The movie claims borderline personality disorder, but as her son Daniel says, “Borderline my butt.”
3. Mr. & Mrs. Marshall
The whole courtship and marriage between Anna and J. Howard Marshall, played by Martin Landau, just seemed comical. Since this is 2013, the movie definitely enhanced the YOLO factor on Howard. The guy just wanted to have some fun in his last years and be Anna’s sugar daddy (cringe).
4. The Clown Scene
There are almost no words to describe this scene — but what made it even crazier was that it actually happened. With eerie clown makeup and severely slurred speech, a pregnant Anna claimed her baby was “just gas.” The little girl with her looked visibly worried and said Anna was having “brain trouble,” while Howard K. Stern filmed the whole thing. Agnes played this scene to perfection, and scared us with how far gone Anna was. As if the clown makeup wasn’t evident enough already.
5. Anything & Everything From Daniel
The real star of the film is Anna’s first child, Daniel. All four actors that played Daniel — especially Graham Patrick Martin – stole the show from the woman who wanted all the attention for herself. Graham really showed how Anna’s party-girl ways took a toll on him as a child, and he eventually succumbed to similar demons. He desperately tried to save his mother from tragedy, even telling her at one point, “You suck at being a momma, momma.” His scenes showed his vulnerability and yearning for the mother he once knew, making his unexpected death all the more tragic.

Rock ‘n’ roll love! After about a year-long engagement Avril and Chad tied the knot during an intimate ceremony in Cannes, France on June 29.
Avril Lavigneand Chad Kroegerhave made it official, getting married on June 29 in Cannes, France! They are now the most famous Canadian rocker husband and wife (at least in our minds).
Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger Get Married
The two musicians tied the knot in a “very intimate affair,” according to Us Weekly. Avril, 28, reportedly wore a custom-made dress by Johanna Johnson and her gay friend served as her maid of honor.
Looks like it’s time to hear that wedding song — the singer revealed that she and Chad, 38, recorded a new song together that would be their ceremonial tune in an interview with Nylon magazine. “We’ll have to release it after,” she said.
Avril also revealed that she had been doing all the planning for the big day. “I’m the one who has the crazy vision and he’s letting me be me. It’s a lot and I just want to make sure I really enjoy this amazing time,” the singer said.
She also added, “I want all the guests who come to have this once in a lifetime experience and I want everyone to say ‘Wow!’ and for it to be special for everyone, not just us.” We’re sure she accomplished that mission — on the secret wedding location in Cannes, Avril explained it as “out of control.”
Chad and Avril announced their engagement in August 2012. This is Chad’s first marriage and Avril’s second. She was previously married to Deryk Whibley of Sum 41 for three years before divorcing in 2009.
We’re so happy for this rock ‘n’ roll couple! Congrats, Avril and Chad!
Selena is one of the most eligible bachelorettes in the world now that she’s done with Justin Bieber, and she’s been spending a ton of time with both Austin and David. But there can only be one next boyfriend, and a source close to the sexy singer tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY which one she’s crushing on.
Selena Gomez: Are David Henrie & Austin Mahone Boyfriend Material?
… neither! (Sorry, we just couldn’t resist.)
“If she was to date anyone, it wouldn’t be Austin or Dave,” the source says. At 17 and 23 years old, respectively, Austin and David aren’t exactly what Selena’s looking for.
“She wants a sexy MAN, and I’m sorry but they are boys to her,” says the insider.
Austin Mahone & David Henrie: ‘Like Brothers’ To Selena Gomez
So Taylor Swift’smatchmaking efforts have been thwarted, but she just wasn’t picking the right guys. Austin and David have spent too much time in Selena’s friend zone for her to consider them romantically. “She loves them like little brothers,” the source insists. “They’re all just family.”
David pretty much grew up with Selena when they starred on The Wizards Of Waverly Place together and Selena seems to just see 17-year-old Austin as a cute kid. They definitely have no shot with the “Come & Get It” singer though — literally the least sexy thing a potential love interest can call you is her little brother.
What do you think of Selena’s preferences, HollywoodLifers? Should she give these two guys a shot or is she right to look for a more mature man? Let us know!
Aw how cute! The world finally got to see Kim for the first time since North West was born on June 29 when her sister, Khloe Kardashian, posted an adorable picture of the new mommy taking a nap.
Finally, right? Kim Kardashianhas kept an extremely low profile since giving birth to her daughter, North West on June 15, but you knew she wasn’t going to stay out of the public eye forever. We finally got a look at the new mom when Khloe Kardashianuploaded a cute pic of her sleeping deeply with the family dog.
Kim Kardashian’s First Pic Post-Baby
“I love my lil baby so much,” Khloe wrote along with the photo she posted on her Facebook page. Unfortunately no, she was not referring to Nori, who we’re sad to say is not in the photograph. She was talking about her boxer pup, Bernard, who we admit is probably almost as cute as North.
It seems pretty fitting that the first picture of Kim since she gave birth is of her sleeping — being a new mom is tiring stuff!
But Kim has reportedly loved every second of it — you could say she’s even obsessed with motherhood, according to TMZ. She reportedly looks forward to her breastfeeding time with Nori. “She does it all,” a source told TMZ about Kim K.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s Extreme Privacy Measures
Kim and Kanye Westhave been extremely quiet since welcoming North into the world — Kim has tweeted just once, and it was to wish Khloe a happy birthday. They obviously have their hands full just being parents, but the silence has also been because of their strong desire to keep their family life private.
A source tells HollywoodLife.comexclusively that guests — even family members — who want to visit North are required to sign a six page confidentiality agreement. If they’re going to those lengths, then it’s no surprise to see Kim’s usually active Twitter and Instagram out of commission.
But we do look forward to the day she comes back. Now that we’ve gotten a taste of Kim post-birth, we just want to see more! And oh yeah, show us that baby!
Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth Fight About Her Sexy New Image
Miley’s new ultra-sexy persona is causing a ton of problems for her and Liam, a source tells HollywoodLife.comexclusively. “They’ve had a lot of fights about it,” the source says.
Apparently Liam hasn’t loved watching his fiancee turn into a racy, super hot exhibitionist as much as we have. He feels somewhat disrespected by it, the source suggests.
And the fact that Liam’s mad about it only makes Miley mad: “Miley doesn’t think Liam has any right to tell her to tone it down,” the source says. “He plays different characters for his career and this is the character she’s playing right now for her career.” It’s a great point by Miley — Liam had to know what he was getting himself into when he got engaged to a budding sex symbol.
Miley Cyrus: Toning The Sexiness Down For Liam Hemsworth
The fights have gotten bad and they do disrupt the loving relationship Miley and Liam have, but to Miley’s credit, she’s willing to swallow her pride (somewhat) for the sake of love.
“She has made some adjustments because she wants to keep the peace,” the source says. “It might not look like it, but she toned down a lot of stuff in her ‘We Can’t Stop’ video. It’s a hard line to walk because she’s trying to be respectful to Liam but also be true to herself as an artist.”
First of all, can we step back and imagine what a not-toned down version of “We Can’t Stop” would look like?!
Secondly, this is a sticky situation for Miley and Liam to be in. This is her career they’re fighting about — obviously knowing the world can watch his fiancee shake her butt might be unnerving, but Liam has to give Miley the freedom to take her image in whichever direction she wants.
A great relationship is two people loving and supporting each other unconditionally, letting one another pursue their dreams. Hopefully, Miley and Liam can find a middle ground and move forward. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
Selena was all smiles as she stepped out in Los Angeles on June 28, but was it just an act? A source close to the singer tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY how she really feels after splitting from Justin.
Sometimes the best way to get back at an ex is to go out looking happier and better than ever. That seemed to be the strategy Selena Gomezapplied on June 28 when she went out in L.A. flaunting her sexy long legs and a big smile. But the question is, does the “Come & Get It” singer actually feel as great as she looks?
Selena’s alone time approach to getting over this tough breakup is totally different than what her ex, Justin, is doing.
Instead of cherishing the single life, the Biebs seems to be trying to get back on the horse as soon as possible. On June 16, Justin was spotted at an indoor skydiving arena in Las Vegas on a date with model, Jordan Ozuna– and there was tons of PDA!
“She was sitting on his lap and they were kissing,” an eyewitness told E!. “Little pecks and kisses. She was caressing him on the head and shoulders.”
To each his own — Selena and Justin are clearly handling the split in different ways. But it is amazing to hear that Selena is moving on strongly and won’t be bothered by her ex smooching new girls.

It’s action time, people. The White House is under attack and only Channing and Jamie Foxx (as the president) can save the day. Sounds pretty awesome to us, but did the critics like ‘White House Down?’ Find out below!
You can pretty much sign us up for anything involving Channing Tatum. Throw in Jamie Foxxas a more badass version of the president and we’re definitely interested. White House Down has got us hook, line, and sinker, but what did the critics think of the action flick? Also — and maybe most importantly — is White House Down better than Olympus Has Fallen? We have to know!
‘White House Down’ Reviews
New York Times
White House Down, the latest conflagration from that master blaster Roland Emmerich, is as demented and entertaining as promised, and a little less idiotic than feared.
Los Angeles Times
White House Down is a hoot and a half, a shameless popcorn entertainment that is preposterous and diverting in just about equal measure. This story of “the worst day this country ever had” — a roughly 12-hour period when an armed paramilitary group blows up the Capitol and takes over the White House — is very much something you get a kick out of against your better judgment.
New York Post
You couldn't ask for a more fun summer popcorn movie than White House Down. The buddy action-comedy teams the ever-ingratiating Channing Tatum, as a hunky, off-duty DC cop, with Jamie Foxx, slyly amusing as President Sawyer, a very thinly disguised version of our current chief executive. The latest epic from master of disaster Roland Emmerich is his most entertaining since "Independence Day" — amusingly referenced by a White House tour guide in the new film, which is a lot funnier than you'd guess from some of the trailers.
White House Down never quite seems to decide what kind of movie it wants to be, although by firepower alone it qualifies as this summer's most cartoonishly bombastic exercise in sensory overload (so far). A riotous display of serial explosions, helicopter crashes, car smash-ups, sniper attacks and at least one slap on the face of a winsome little girl, White House Down is the kind of celebration of rampant mayhem in which everyone seems to have a rocket launcher — or at least a live hand grenade — at the ready, just in case they need to dispatch a scrum of exceptionally vile and cruel villains.
Just as we thought — Channing and Jamie make a great team! And we’d say the answer is yes — White House Down is better than Olympus Has Fallen. HollywoodLifers, will you go see them in action in White House Down? Let us know!
Ali may have won Miss USA in 1996, but she has other plans for her daughter to shine — preferably not on the stage of a beauty pageant. She tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why she doesn’t want her 4-year-old girl doing pageants.
Ali Landry, 39, garnered worldwide attention when she was crowned Miss USA in 1996. But now as a busy mom of two — with another on the way! — the former beauty queen is focusing on her family, and making her her daughter has other hobbies besides pageants.
Ali Landry: My Daughter Is Outgoing
The gorgeous model and actress, who tied the knot with her hubby Alejandro Gomez Monteverde in 2006, got her start as the winner of one of the biggest beauty pageants in the world. So would she let her daughter Estela follow in her footsteps?
“Probably not,” Ali tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“My daughter has a very outgoing personality, so here in Los Angeles there are so many creative outlets for her to be expressive,” she adds. “There’s theater and all these other things she’s offered here so I don’t think we would really do that, but knowing her, she would probably love it.”
“I think three is a good number,” she tells HollywoodLife.com. ”I come from a family of three and so does my husband, so three is a good number.”
“When I was pregnant with my son, I said I would for sure love another child,” she says. “I am very happy with three, but I am also open for more. I won’t say no, because I don’t know. I also have not gotten rid of one piece of baby clothes; I keep all my stuff just in case. If it happens, it will be incredible but we are happy with three.”
Ali Landry Shares Her Secret To Beautiful Skin
Ali, who teamed up with Palmers again during her third pregnancy, swears by Palmer’s Coco Butter for her baby bump and stretch marks while she’s pregnant. She used the product when she was pregnant with Marcelo, and is excited to be using it again with her third pregnancy!
“I had already been using it and taking care of my skin, and I was such a fan and then now,” she tells HollywoodLife.com. “To do it again this year with my third, I have had incredible results and my skin looks amazing.”
“I have tried every product under the sun — you know being in this business you really try everything — and I feel like this specific line, my skin stays moisturized 24/7,” she adds. “I've never experienced this type of moisture on my skin, its really incredible.”
Keep an eye out for her new TV ads for Palmers — her adorable kids will be in them with her!
What do YOU think of Ali not letting her daughter do beauty pageants, HollyMoms? Do you agree?
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s Home Videos Of North West
A source close to the new dad, Kanye West, tells HollywoodLife.comexclusively that he and Kim have not allowed cameras to film Nori, but that they are shooting home videos themselves.
“The most North has been filmed is on their family’s iPhones,” the source says. “They made a little family album with some videos when Kim was in the hospital.” How sweet!
Kim and Kanye are doing their best to keep the spotlight off their newborn, and the amateur movies they’re making are just for them. “That’s just for the family,” the source says, “so they can remember that moment.”
Kanye West Sings ‘I Love You’ To North West
Kanye and Kim filming North and reveling in her is just another example of how proud and happy the couple are to be parents.
Another source revealed to HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Kanye — the big mean rapper — even sings to his baby girl! “It’s one of his favorite things to do,” the source says.
The insider adds:
Most of the time, he doesn't want to talk to anybody because he's with North and Kim. One time he forgot to hang up the phone when we were done talking, and I could hear him singing to the baby 'I love you… yes, I do.' It was one of those many father-daughter moments they will have together.
How sad. One of the most memorable figures in pro wrestling history was found dead in his girlfriend’s apartment in Texas on June 28.
Matt Osborne, better known as Doink the Clown, died on Friday, June 28 of unknown causes. He was just 55 years old.
Matt Osborne, aka Doink The Clown, Passes Away
The ex-WWE star was found by his girlfriend, who he had been living with, in her Plano, Texas apartment, according to TMZ. The cause of death is still unknown, and though police have reportedly launched a homicide investigation, a source tells TMZ that it is merely standard procedure, and that all indications are that Matt’s death was accidental.
The greasepaint-covered Doink the Clown gained popularity in the 90s, known for playing tricks on other wrestlers and even fans. He brought joy and levity to the sport, and revolutionized pro wrestling’s oddball humor, which still endures today.
Upon learning of Doink’s death, the WWE released a mournful statement:
WWE is saddened by the news that Matt Osborne, aka the original Doink the Clown, has passed away. A rugged brawler in promotions like Mid-South Wrestling and World Championship Wrestling, Osborne made a major impact in WWE under the greasepaint of a prankster named Doink — one of the most enduring personas of the early '90s. Our deepest condolences go out to Osborne's family, friends and fans.
Matt’s death is truly tragic, especially considering his relatively young age. His fans — and all pro wrestling fans — are surely grieving today. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Matt’s family and friends in this difficult time.

“They are splitting duties,” a source tells E! News. “Kanye is so hands on. He’s changing diapers.”
Kim Feared Parenthood Before Becoming Mother
Kim may be a “natural” now, but her pregnancy wasn’t without its trepidations. The source told E!:
Kim always feared having a baby. She thought it would be so hard, but it’s all coming so naturally to her.
