Rihanna & Ciara Feud On Twitter, Make Up

February 28th, 2011 8:08am EST
Rihanna
R&B singer Ciara sparked an online war of words with Rihanna on Friday after she accused the "Umbrella" superstar of ignoring her at a recent party.

Ciara made the allegation during an appearance on Joan Rivers' "Fashion Police" show on the E! network after she was quizzed by the outlandish host about what she thought of Rihanna's style.

She told Rivers, "I ran into (Rihanna) recently at a party. She wasn't the nicest. It's crazy, because I've always loved and respected what she's done in fashion. It wasn't the most pleasant run-in."

Rihanna quickly retorted with a message on her Twitte,...

Joan Rivers
Outspoken comedienne Joan Rivers has blasted Charlie Sheen for his recent "outrageous" behavior, insisting he should clean up his act for the sake of his children.

Sheen began a rehabilitation program last week shortly after he was hospitalized to treat a "hernia," causing production on his hit TV show Two and A Half Men to be put on hold while he gets clean.

And Rivers admits she is disgusted Sheen can continue his wild ways when he has four children - slamming the star for not giving up booze and drugs when he became a father.

She tells The Advocate, "I think he's an a**. When you hav...

This Week's Shining & Falling Stars: Joan Rivers And Jennifer Aniston

January 7th, 2011 9:34am EST
Joan Rivers
Shining Star – Joan Rivers: At the age of 77, one of the (nipped and tucked) queens of comedy is showing those young whippersnappers how it’s done.

Pretty soon Joan Rivers will soon have not one, but two (or possibly even three) shows on the boob tube.

The saucy comedienne already returned to E!’s airwaves earlier this year (after parting with the channel back in 2003) for her weekly “Fashion Police” show. And she put her gift of gab to good use as host of TV Land’s “How’d You Get So Rich?” series (which hasn’t yet been renewed for a third season).

Now, she’s getting Kardashian-ed. In ot...

Melissa Gilbert
Melissa Gilbert attended the "TRON: Legacy" Los Angeles premiere with her husband Bruce Boxleitner, and is it just our imagination or does she look a little nip and tucked? With those very wide eyes she sort of looks Joan Rivers-esque.

What do you think?

The former "Little House on the Prairie" actress is the face of the anti-narcotics campaign group Partnership at Drugfree.org. Gilbert has battled alcoholism and substance abuse issues in the past, and this fall she signed up to help the organization, which offers parents advice on how to prevent kids falling into drug use.

Joan Rivers Urges Gay Stars To 'Stay In The Closet'

June 28th, 2010 12:05pm EDT
Joan Rivers
Joan Rivers has caused controversy by urging gay stars not to reveal their true sexuality - because 'coming out' could damage their career.

The outspoken comedienne is adamant show business is still difficult for homosexual stars, and she's convinced they would be better off keeping their love life private until they become well-established as an artist. And Rivers cites singer Ricky Martin, who revealed he's gay in March after years of speculation, as an example.

She tells The Advocate, "If you're going to be a romantic idol and try to get every teenage girl to love you, then you'd be ...

Is Joan Rivers also urging young actors to stay in the closet? The Advocate's Brandon Voss talked to to the comedienne about this, why AIDS jokes are funny, and having daughter Melissa as her lesiban love interest.

ADVOCATE: Should young gay performers still keep their sexuality a secret?

It’s part of the game. If you’re going to be a romantic idol and try to get every teenage girl to love you, then you’d be an ass to come out and say you’re gay. That’s why Ricky Martin was so smart — he did what he did, he made his millions, and then he said, “Guess what, everybody? I’m gay, I’m havin...

Billy Sammeth, who was hired by the outspoken "funnywoman" in 2002 and fired in 2009, filed a lawsuit in a New York court earlier this week claiming he is owed unpaid commissions.

He is also seeking $2 million in exemplary and punitive damages, accusing the star of defaming him in her recent TV documentary, Joan ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'The A-Team,' 'The Karate Kid,' & More

Karate Kid
Last week’s “Get Him to the Greek” turned out to be much funnier than I expected it would be. Jonah Hill plays a naïve record company intern tasked with watching the wild rock star Aldous Snow, portrayed by Russell Brand. It’s clear right from the beginning that Hill’s character is unable to fathom the mess he has gotten into taking care of Snow, and he quickly gives in to Snow’s party lifestyle.

Most of the film’s humor is based in the awkward interactions between Hill’s Aaron and Brand’s Aldous, with typical lowbrow laughs. However this formula just seems to fit very well for the mov...

Celebrities That Look Great Over The Years

celebs that look great over the years
In Hollywood, looking a day over 25 is a liability. And then there are the celebrity faces that have been botoxed to the point that their foreheads have become unnatural plains of shiny, flat skin. The message in Hollywood is clear: young and perky equals good; saggy and old equals bad.

This debasing assessment is generally more applicable to women than it is to men, whose aging process garners descriptions like "sugar daddy," "distinguished grey," and "silver fox." Society bids women to believe that in order to be considered beautiful and desirable, they must be cellulite, sag, and wri...
