Actually, Rihanna’s dating plan at the moment is to stay single, a source close to the singer tells HollywoodLife.comexclusively! “She’s not trying to be pushed up on by anyone,” the source says.
It’s not that Rihanna’s too heartbroken to think about meeting someone new, the source explains, she just simply doesn’t have enough time to build a solid new relationship. “It’s not like she’s done with the tour. She’s only got a little more than a month to chill out,” the source says. “That’s no time for her to be trying to date anybody or complicate things with some dude.”
“She’s cool with that,” the source adds. “No man needed.”
Rihanna: How She’s Spending Her Time After Chris Brown Breakup
So how exactly is Rihanna passing the time now that she’s on a “No Man Dating Plan?”
“She’s doing some major shopping while she’s got a quick break,” the same source reveals. This doesn’t come as too much of a surprise — Rihanna is always on the cutting edge of style, and it seems like she never wears anything twice.
“That will keep her busy and out of trouble,” the source adds.
We have to say: this independent, level-headed version of Rihanna really is a breath of fresh air. Not that we don’t love how she always acts with conviction and emotion, but we’re happy to see her take a step back and keep things calm for once.
Although, Rihanna is Unapologetic and unpredictable, so there’s no telling how she’ll feel if she meets someone she likes. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
Lea is slowly but surely stepping back out into the public eye after the love of her life tragically died on July 13, but it hasn’t been easy. Out for a friend’s party on August 3, the grieving ‘Glee’ star appeared to be fighting back her emotions.
Lea was spotted on August 3 in Los Angeles, heading to a friend’s party at the Thompson Hotel, according to FameFlynet. The Glee star, who was accompanied by two friends, looked beautiful in a white lace dress with matching heels as she headed in to the swanky hotel.
But she also looked downtrodden. With sunglasses to shield her eyes, Lea appeared to be fighting back her feelings and still seemed to be readjusting to being back in the public eye. But the most important part is that she’s out, leaning on her friends and staying busy as she tries to recover and move forward after Cory’s death.
Lea Michele: Devastated, But Staying Strong
That’s how things are for Lea at the moment — a mix of being extremely strong and sad. Heading back to film Glee, a source close to the show tells HollywoodLife.comexclusively that, “Lea is very strong in the process so far. She is really trying to show a strong face on set to the cast and crew.”
But at the same time, she can only put on that strong face for so long. “You can tell she is still in a haze,” the source also says, adding, “Tears can and will happen at anytime.”
That being said, the bottom line is we are extremely glad to see Lea out and about. Staying active and being with her close friends really are the best medicine for her. What do you think, HollywoodLifers?
Kristen was BFFs with Katy until she was forced to choose sides after the Robert Pattinson breakup. Now in a revealing new interview, Katy gives a detailed account of her crumbling friendship with K-Stew, and what she did to try to save it.
It must have been devastating for Kristen Stewartto see one of her best friends, Katy Perry, support Robert Pattinsonafter their rough split in May. But on the other hand, it must have also been difficult for Katy to lose a good friend after being construed as a homewrecker and a boyfriend-stealer in countless rumors.
Katy Perry: How She Tried To End Her ‘Feud’ With Kristen Stewart
Katy recently tried to explain her side of the story in a new interview with ELLE UK. Not only does she insist that nothing romantic ever happened between her and Rob, she also says she reached out to Kristen to try to clear the air.
With report after report being released alleging that Katy and Rob had taken their relationship to the next level after his breakup with K-Stew, Katy tried to get in contact with the Twilight actress. “I sent her a text message saying: ‘I know you’ve seen all this stuff, but you know I would never disrespect you. I’m not that person,’” Katy revealed to ELLE UK.
She continued: “I’m just trying to be a friend to him, but it is unfortunate that I do have a set of tits.” Katy doesn’t say whether or not Kristen responded to her.
Katy Perry: Choosing Robert Pattinson Ruined Her Friendship With Kristen Stewart
There’s no doubt that Katy was caught in a difficult spot. She was friends with both K-Stew and Rob, but in a breakup you can never take both sides. And after siding with Rob because she knew he didn’t have as many friends in LA to lean on — as HollywoodLife.comreported exclusively before — people made the quick, unfair assumption that there was something romantic going on.
But Katy’s intimate interview, and the way she maturely and compassionately reached out to Kristen, suggests that that isn’t the case. She may have just been a good friend who got caught in a no-win situation.
Meeting guests after participating at the Audi Polo Challenge in Ascot, England, the new dad reportedly apologized for his subpar performance, admitting, “I was in baby mode out there, thinking about nappies [diapers], I wasn’t really in the zone,” according to Mail Online. The Duke reportedly then added, “I’ve got to pick some up on my way home.”
Prince William, who’s usually so at home at a charity polo match, was showing off his newfound fatherly instincts. Even though he said it was good to get out of the house, he couldn’t help but add, “I’ve got to make sure I’m not too late back.”
William and Kate have been staying with her parents in Bucklebury, England — which is nearby Ascot’s polo grounds — since Prince George’sbirth, adjusting to parenthood and getting some time out of the spotlight.
Prince William: Father Of The Year?
We already want to nominate Prince William for father of the year! Not only does he have diapers on his mind at all times, but he reportedly sings the little princeto sleep!
William has found a successful (but strange) way to get the royal baby to sleep, according to The Daily Star:
Prince William is using a bizarre tactic of belting out Coldplay anthems at all hours of the night even though he can barely hold a note.
So for the record, the Duke of Cambridge buys his own diapers and futilely sings “Clocks” to his newborn. We can’t even handle this!
Lea is slowly making her way back to the set of ‘Glee,’ where she is unfortunately reminded of Cory’s tragic death every second. But a source close to the actress tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she’s persevering, and is even working directly on developing the perfect tribute for her fallen soulmate.
Lea Michele Leading The Creative Process For Cory Monteith’s Tribute Episode
“The producers are still going back and forth on what they want to do and clearing music for his tribute,” the source says. But most of all, Glee’s creative team is looking to Lea to give the final word on decisions that are being made for this season’s third episode, which will be an emotional tribute to Cory.
“The meetings are lengthy and Lea is a part of them to make sure everything is just right,” says the source.
Lea Michele Filming Glee: ‘Tears Will Happen’
Lea is showing unbelievable strength and courage to spearhead the tribute episode and assume a role of leadership — and remember, she was the one who bravely demanded that filming go on after a short break, just days after Cory’s death — but that doesn’t mean the coming weeks are going to be easy by any means.
“When they start filming the PSAs and the third episode, that is going to be a mess,” the source insists. “After they film that episode they are going to go on a break to recharge.”
So sad. Jennifer tragically plummeted 17 stories to her death on August 1 after the balcony she was leaning on gave way. But the worst part is, this horrible accident could have been prevented.
When Jennifer Rosoff, 35, leaned on her 17th story balcony while on a date on August 1, she likely didn’t know it was an accident waiting to happen. But in the wake of this ad executive’s horrible death, new investigations show that the deadly balcony was not up to code.
Jennifer Rosoff’s Death: Balcony Inspections Were Over Six Months Late
Every balcony at the Stonehenge 57, Jennifer’s apartment building, has been deemed “defective or not up to code,” a law enforcement official told the New York Post. “They weren’t strong enough to hold her up,” said the source.
The New York City Department of Buildings has also spoken up, stating that Stonehenge was over six months late in filing their inspection reports. “They needed to file the report by August 2012, but they filed it on Feb. 21, 2013,” a representative for the Department of Buildings said. All other tenants who live in balcony apartments at Stonehenge have been barred from using them.
As of now though, Stonehenge’s management is defending the apartment building and doesn’t want to leap to any conclusions on what happened to cause Jennifer’s fatal fall. “The fact remains that there is an ongoing investigation into the matter and we are cooperating fully. At this time it would be inappropriate for us to make any definitive statement or respond to any specific inquiry that may be related to the investigation,” Richard Dansereau, managing director of Stonehenge Management said in a statement.
Jennifer Rosoff Falls To Her Death On A First Date
Jennifer was on a first date with Stephen Close, 35, when she went to her balcony for a smoke. Perching herself on the railing, it suddenly gave way, and sent Jennifer flying backward into the sky. She fell 15 stories before landing on scaffolding, dying instantly.
Reportedly just before she fell, her date warned her, “Look, this thing looks unstable. Maybe you want to get down.”
“I’ve done this before,” Jennifer reportedly replied.
What an awful tragedy. Our hearts go out to Jennifer’s friends and family as they try to make sense of this tragic accident.
Megan tried to use her large bag to cover her growing baby bump while walking through the airport, where she was spotted by photographers from SplashNews, but she couldn’t quite hide it — it’s already too big to disguise!
The pregnant star was joined by her husband, 90210 alum Brian Austin Green, who was wheeling their 10-month-old son, Noah,in a stroller. What a beautiful, growing family they make.
Megan’s rep confirmed to HollywoodLife.comon August 2 that she was in fact expecting another baby: “Megan is pregnant,” the rep said. “I can confirm that Megan is expecting her second child with her husband Brian. They are both very happy,” the rep also told Page Six.
Megan Fox: ‘I Want To Have More Kids’
Since giving birth to Noah in September 2012, Megan has made it no secret that she wants to have more kids. “All I wanted to do my whole, whole life was have a baby and, now, I've finally done it,” she told Marie Clare UKin March 2013. “I just want to give Noah as much of myself as I can. And I want to have more kids. That is where my heart is.”
She certainly didn’t waste any time! We’re so happy for Megan — she’s already adjusted to motherhood so well and we’re sure a second child will make her even happier.

Plus, how does Holland really feel about playing a banshee? Watch our exclusive video interview for all the scoop!
The cat’s out of the bag! Or, rather, the banshee’s out of the bag. Teen Wolffans were thrilled by the big reveal of what Lydia really is, but no one was more relieved than Holland Rodenherself. “[Creator] Jeff Davis loves to put things off till the last second,” Holland told HollywoodLife.com on Aug. 1 at the 2013 Young Hollywood Awards. “It’s nice now that there’s an actual reason behind the mania.”
But before you think playing a banshee is all fun and games, know this: those screams are real — and they’re not easy.
“People ask if they’re banked screams; they’re not banked,” Holland told us. “I’m starting to take voice lessons, actually, and my voice teacher said, ‘You’re probably going to have to bank a couple screams because you can’t keep doing that to your vocal chords.’ It takes a couple days to recover.”
Lydia & Stiles’ Big Kiss
The trailer for the final episodes of 2013 certainly had fans screaming — especially when we saw the long-awaited lip lock between Lydia and Stiles (Dylan O’Brien)! Holland told us that episode 11 is a “very big episode” in terms of two characters “coming together,” but I didn’t let her end there.
Here’s what Holland told us about filming the epic ‘Stydia’ kiss:
Jeff Davis had talked to us about it before; he wanted a certain reaction out of Dylan, and a certain reaction out of me. … A little bit more so from Dylan, he wanted a particular reaction, and when it actually happened, Dylan’s like, ‘Yeah, man, I didn’t see it going that way. This is what just happened.’ When Jeff watched the dailies, he was like, ‘Thank God you did. It turned out better than I thought.’ I can’t tell you what direction each of us think about it but it was pretty cool.
With Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington teaming up for ’2 Guns,’ a lighthearted action movie about a ragtag undercover duo who get themselves into a world of trouble after robbing the wrong bank, we were ready to be entertained. But we had no idea it’d make us laugh so hard!
With superheroes constantly saving the world, and massive manmade machines defeating extraterrestrial ocean monsters one fist-fight at a time, the action movies of 2013 have been getting a little old and overly serious. They all seemed to have forgotten the one reason we paid to see them — to be entertained. Fortunately, 2 Guns has come along to bring back the good ol’ days of the unrelentingly explosive, and surprisingly funny, action movie.
’2 Guns’: An Action Movie You Can Kick Back & Enjoy
2 Guns shows a convoluted world of United States government agencies, crooked officials, and Mexican drug lords, and undercover DEA agent Bobby Trench (Denzel Washington) and undercover NCIS agent Marcus Stigman (Mark Wahlberg) are in the middle of it all. It might seem hard to figure out who’s working for who and who’s double-crossing who in this movie, but don’t worry, it’ll be the only time you’ll have to use your brain (which I think is a good thing).
Bobby and Marcus start off as partners who both don’t realize that the other is undercover. After attempting to set up their drug lord boss (Edward James Olmos) on tax evasion charges by robbing the bank where he hides his money, they find out they pissed off the wrong guys — the CIA — and their true identities are revealed.
Because the CIA and their former agencies are after them for their multi-million dollar heist, Bobby and Marcus are forced to team up yet again — much to our benefit. 2 Guns is absolutely carried by Denzel and Mark’s on-screen chemistry, which is off the charts. Their dialogue is sharp, hilarious, and easy, and I’m pretty sure the audience wouldn’t have minded if 2 Guns turned out to just be a two-hour conversation between these two guys.
’2 Guns’ Brings Back The Funny Action Movie
2 Guns stumbled on a dynamic that hasn’t really been utilized in an action movie since ’80s buddy action-comedy flicks like Midnight Run. The stakes are high — stuff is exploding, people are getting shot, and even more are cursing — but they never feel onerous. When Bobby and Marcus get themselves in a sticky situation, you know they’re going to get out of it, so the fun isn’t in watching if, it’s in watching how. That makes for an easygoing, altogether fun viewing experience.
And it doesn’t hurt that the jokes are hilarious. Between Marky Mark telling Edward James Olmos that he looks like a “Mexican Albert Einstein” (which is very true), and Denzel slapping people around with abandon, 2 Guns might be better classified as a comedy. Here’s how funny it was — it actually got me to laugh at a fart joke. That’s historic stuff right there.
You can probably already guess how 2 Guns ends, but that isn’t the point. The point is you won’t want it to end, because this thing is just too fun to watch.
Watch our exclusive video interview with Cody to find out how he’s making the world a better place — and who he’d like to work with next!
Aug. 1 was a big night for Cody Simpson. Not only did the Australian singer perform his hit single “Pretty Brown Eyes” at the 2013 Young Hollywood Awards, but he was also honored with the Role Model Award! And after chatting with him before the show on the red carpet, we can say he’s worked hard for that title.
“I’ve always done my best to be the best role model I could for my fans and set a good example,” he told us. “Tonight, they’re recognizing me for the work I’ve done with Teen Cancer here in the U.S. I’m doing my best to spread a positive message and make a difference any way I can.”
Cody Simpson: What He’s Learned From Justin Bieber
Since Cody’s currently touring with Justin Bieber– you might have heard of him — we also had to ask him what he’s learned from the Canadian pop superstar.
“I love being able to see different artists, such as him,” he told us. “Any chance I get to go to live shows, I love being able to go and learn. It’s great.”
As for which fellow young artist Cody would like to collaborate with? Only one name came to mind: Ariana Grande, with whom Cody shares a manager.
“She’s very talented,” he told us. “She has an incredible voice.”
Finally some answers! Katy addressed the rumors swirling around her and Rob in a new interview and went into EXTREME in-depth detail about their relationship, even revealing some things you might not have expected!
Katy Perryand Robert Pattinson’srelationship isn’t what ANY of us thought. At least according to Katy, who went on the record for the first time about her close relationship with Rob in an interview with ELLE UK, dishing about the inner-workings of their friendship, their bedside manners, and even the sexy secret she revealed just to him (until now)!
Katy Perry Reveals Intimate Details Of Robert Pattinson Relationship
Though there were plenty of rumors that the star-studded duo were hooking up when Rob started hanging out with Katy after his breakup with Kristen Stewart, Katy says there was nothing romantic going on (which HollywoodLife.comtold you exclusively in May).
“He’s my bud, I’m his big sister,” Katy told ELLE UK. “We just hang out.”
When Katy compared her and Rob’s relationship to that of siblings, she wasn’t kidding, explaining that she can really be her (gross) self in front of him: “OK, so here’s the proof there was nothing was ever going on with me and Robert Pattinson,” Katy said, “I fart in front of him. Properly fart. And I never fart in front of a man I am dating. That’s a rule.” Thanks for that much-needed info, Katy!
Katy Perry & Robert Pattinson: Did They Hook Up?
But even though Katy unabashedly lets it rip in front of Rob, she also seems to also admit that she is attracted to Rob, though she also says she’s proud of herself for never acting on those urges.
Katy reveals that she once approached Rob about those feelings and said, “One of the things I’m most proud of is not sleeping with you, Robert.”
“And that’s true,” Katy adds. Clearly these two have a strong friendship, likely made stronger by when Rob leaned on her after his heartbreaking split from K-Stew. Hooking up would have just destroyed the strong bond they have.
We’re glad Katy was there for Rob, and while we’re not sure we needed to know about her bodily habits, we’re also happy that she cleared up all the rumors.
What do you think about everything Katy had to say, HollywoodLifers? Do you believe her? Let us know!
How touching! Raven stood up for what she believed in and seemed to come out in the process by celebrating the legalization of same-sex marriage and stating, ‘I can finally get married,’ on Twitter on August 2. And ever since, the outpouring of support for the TV star has been overwhelming!
Raven-Symone’s gay-friendly tweet — and apparent official coming out statement — on August 2 has already inspired countless people, who tweeted out their support and admiration for Raven’s strength and courage.
Raven-Symone: Overflowing Support After She Comes Out
Apparently celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn The Defense of Marriage Act and the recent legalizations of gay marriage in Rhode Island and Minnesota, Raven took to Twitter, saying, “I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you.”
Many took the tweet as an official coming out announcement from Raven, who has been rumored to be gay before, and thousands of fans began celebrating along with the 27-year-old star on Twitter almost immediately.
As of August 3, Raven’s original tweet has been retweeted 11,791 times and favorited another 10,114 times!
“Proud of my idol!!” @DanielJBaker wrote. ”And I’m so proud of you for that tweet,” another fan wrote. The That’s So Raven star even got some humorous support: @PunkyStarshine tweeted, “Does Raven play for our team? I missed that, but I dig it.”
“Thanks for all the love!” Raven wrote back to all of her supporters.
Raven-Symone: But Is She Getting Married?
Raven also responded to the outpouring in an official statement, reinforcing how happy she is about marriage equality, but also clarifying that she isn’t tying the knot just yet.
“I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted,” Raven said. “I was excited to hear today that more states legalized gay marriage. I, however am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now.”
Either way, we’re so happy for Raven, and we’re proud too of her bravery to show the world who she is and stand up for what she believes in!
