Queen Latifah still won’t admit sexual orientation

Apparently, Queen Latifah is not very eager about coming out of the closet. The singer and actress sticks to her belief, that her sexual orientation is part of her private life and “private” means just that. Recently, Queen Latifah participated in a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride festival, where she showed her love and support that she was feeling at the time, but when it came to her coming out of the closet, The Queen stepped down from the spotlight. “I’ve never dealt with the question of my personal life in public,” the U.N.I.T.Y. singer explained to Entertainment Weekly, concluding: “It’s just not gonna happen.” The rumors of her gay orientation sparked when Queen Latifah performed at LGBT Pride Festival, which was organized in Long Beach, California. However, she says that her participating in that show was not about what gender she is attracted to, but about sharing love and support, no matter the cause. “When people are going through hatred and bullying, the biggest thing to fight that is love”, the singer explained. Despite her explanation, many of the Twitter users stick to the spicier view: Queen Latifah has a thing for girls!...

Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris, a couple again

Over the weekend Hugh Hefner and his former girlfriend, crystal Karris announced that they were back together again. The 86-year-old Playboy mogul tweeted that his reconciliation with the woman that left him at the altar last year should not be a surprise for anyone, while Crystal wrote she was happy to be back at the Mansion. Apparently, with age comes forgiveness. Last year, in summer, Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner was getting ready to walk down the aisle again, after swearing married life was not for him. Luckily or unluckily for him, he sort of predicted what was about to come. Married life was, indeed, out of the cards for him. His fiancé, Crystal Harris, cancelled the wedding just days before the ceremony, explaining that she has second thoughts about it. After the separation, several awkward moments in their relationship from that point on, appeared in the media, causing conflict and turning Crystal into a Nemesis. Of those moments, we clearly recall the one that she told a radio station that sex with Hef was weird and it lasted only a few seconds, and also the one when she decided to take her dog back, after leaving it with Hef. Now, it appears that all that is just water under the bridge, and, on Tuesday, Crystal is welcomed into the Mansion with open arms. “Happy to be back home at...

Chelsea, joking while recovering from knee surgery

On Thursday, comedienne Chelsea Handler underwent knee surgery, but despite the pain, she is still joking when it comes to her recovery. The 37-year-old E! show host tweeted a funny picture of herself in a hospital bed. “Fortune Feimster will be filling in as the host on tonight’s show with more photos of me and my knee making a quick recovery. Pls support her,” comedienne Chelsea Handler texted on Twitter after undergoing a knee surgery and having had to miss her show. Handler also posted a photo of her feeding herself a post-surgery diet, including some golden crackers. Thursday’s broadcast was focused on the interviews of Real Housewives of Orange County’s Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney, but it also included one of Chelsea’s jokes. She has sent a pre-taped message to her audience, stating she has just woken up from a vaginal rejuvenation procedure. Meanwhile, her love life is back on track. Handler reunited with former boyfriend Andre Balazs. We don’t know whether to congratulate her or not, as just last month, on WTF Podcast, she told Marc Maron that the relationship with Balazs, which ended in November last year, was “extremely time consuming”, “a constant back and forth” and “just exhausting”....

Mary Kate Olsen dating much older, famous man

According to The New York Post, former actress Mary Kate Olsen, who is now a big name in the fashion industry, is dating a much older, but very famous man.  The publication reports that Olsen and the man have started going out about a month ago. They say that women dating much older men have “daddy issues”. So, we could speculate that Mary Kate Olsen’s parents’ divorce, in 1995, when she was 9 years old, may have affected her future romantic life. Olsen, 25 is dating Olivier Sarkozy, 42, for a month, but they have made the relationship public just last weekend, when they were spotted hanging out in the Hamptons. If the “Sarkozy” name sounds familiar, it’s because it is. Olivier is the younger brother of the former French president, Nikolas Sarkozy. The relationship between the fashion mogul and the businessman is confirmed by an insider who spoke to Us Weekly, confirming that “they’re dating, and she’s definitely interested in him”. The insider also explains why. “MK is constantly complaining about boys not being mature enough for her. She got the kids out of her system.” A little peek into Olivier Sarkozy’s personal history shows a marriage to writer Charlotte Sarkozy, which ended in 2011, and two children. Previous to the relationship with MK, Olivier was romantically linked to actress Stella Schnabel....
