Joseph Gordon

During the interview of Joseph Gordon-Levitt with Howard Stern, he revealed that he has a girlfriend but did not provide more details about it.  He said, “I have a girlfriend, but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public.  She is not in show business.”

The 32-year old actor even refused to give the name of his girlfriend.  He revealed, “You can imagine not wanting to have that kind of scrutiny.”  The actor admitted that since he was in college he wanted to date quietly but he likes to have long-term relationships which can possibly turn into marriage.  He said, “I think I’m a good person and a good boyfriend.”

“I think I could partner up with a woman and commit to like raising a family, and that’s this project that we’re going to stick to for maybe 20 something years… but after that… things go so fast, my life changes so much.”

“I like to not be too committed to any one future that’s really far away, necessarily, unless there’s a reason.”

“Which is why I’m saying if you’re going to raise a family… I can make that commitment.”

DMX-on-Dr.-Phil

DMX had an interview with Dr. Phil and he appeared to be calm compared to the last time when he was on Iyanla: Fix My Life.  Why did he show up on the Dr. Phil show?  He said, “I just want people to get an honest perception. You get these little 10-second news segments, ‘Rapper DMX did this,’ and ‘Rapper DMX did that.’ Stop being negative.”  What made him decide to ran naked on the hallway on a hotel?  DMX replied, “It was a bet. It was a dare. The dare was order room service and run through the hallway naked. I’ll do that. It wasn’t about if it was a good or bad idea, it was just ‘I’ll do that.’”

DMX-on-Dr.-Phil2

Is their someone who advised him not appear on Dr. Phil show?  He said, “Yes I was because of the prior situation with Iyanla and you guys kind of fall under the Oprah umbrella and it’s like, ‘Don’t even do it, it’s not worth it,’ and I said, ‘You know what? I just need people to look at me as I speak and know who I am by what I say. Not by what you see in the newspaper and not by what you read.’ You can tell a lot by a person by looking them in their eyes.”  How many children does DMX have?  He said:

“ [I have] 11 [children]. And one on the way.”

“I’m not having the children. I’m giving them the children. They’re well taken care of. I’m a big influence in all of their lives. I love all of my children. I do see them and speak to them when I can. I do have a relationship with my children. I love my children. I would never be apart [from] my children’s lives.”

evelyn lozada

During a recent interview, Evelyn Lozada said that she will be doing something new after moving on from VH1′s Basketball Wives.  She said:

“I signed on to do five seasons and this is our fifth. I don’t really see me doing a sixth season. I know I can carry my own show, pretty much carried this one. I would do my own show because I know I would have creative control. I’m in a different space, I’m open to doing a spin-off, but just not with a cast of women.”

Lozada also revealed that she continued receiving some help from life coaches Iyanla Vanzant and Tony Gaskins, she admitted:

“I  stay calm because I think about the previous season when I acted an ass, and it just wasn’t a good look for me, so I think about that We talk about everything, whether it’s dating, whether it’s the show, whether it’s family. It’s just nice to be able to have that outlet and be honest….It helps me. It’s just nice to have that person you can trust and you know it won’t go anywhere….Probably last season I would have gotten up, but it’s just not worth it to me. I made a promise last season to just be a better example. That’s why I chose to be a mature lady and make my life coach very happy and I sat down and if she wanted to act crazy and make herself look crazy; that’s fine.”

Emily-B

Emily Bustamante, the former star of Love & Hip Hop, has been busy lately.  She said:

“I’ve been around, I try to stay with y’all through social networks and just updating y’all with my life that way, but right now I’m filming Chrissy & Mr. Jones season 2 with my girl Chrissy and that airs this fall. So that’s really the next big thing that’s coming out with me. But I’m actually focused on my shoes, my shoe line.

Is it ZigiNY?  She continued:

“Yeah, I’m doing a… well, it’s not really a collaboration because it’s my own collection, but I am working with the company ZigiNY … I saw y’all post about the Giuseppi [knockoffs]  (laughs),  my line will not be a knockoff of anything else! It’s all original (laughs). That was important to me, I didn’t want to do a line that was like something else or an image of something else. I wanted to do something from scratch, so what I did was took something I loved from each one of my shoes and made a collection of my own.”

How did Emily balance her career, relationship and motherhood?

“I think for me, being a mother is first. I have a teenage daughter, she kinda rolls with me, she’s like my homegirl (laughs). So it’s been really easy, because she helps me a lot at home as well, but I have been focused on me. I stop trying to put other things in front of what I have to do and focus on what I have to do. It doesn’t even seem like I’m stretching myself too thin or anything like that. I wake up every day and focus on me and it’s easy. Come home at night and go to bed.”

“It’s easy when you love what you’re doing, it’s not work.”

Rihanna-and-Teyana

Teyana Taylor and Rihanna are having a beef.  Tey thinks that Rihanna is a “cyber bully” and she is making fun of her, she said:

“I really don’t understand. I’ve been in the studio recording my album, minding my business, staying focused or whatever. One day, which was yesterday, I randomly was on my Instagram page and I had heard that she made a video. I’m not following her on Instagram so I didn’t get a chance to see it. I went to Twitter and someone sent me the video. I felt it was really harsh, you know what I’m saying? Because it’s like you got a dude singing “Caught Up in the Rapture of Love” with big hair, a snap back and some Jordans on. I just sung that a week ago. I put up a video a week ago singing “Caught Up in the Rapture of Love” and of course my hair was curly, so whatever.”

Chris Brown's 19th birthday celebration

“So, for her to go and make a video, it wasn’t no coincidence. “Caught Up in the Rapture of Love” is not a recent song. She knew what she was doing. I know her very well and I made that very clear in my tweet.”

Why does she think that Rihanna is a cyber bully?  Tey said:

“I really do think she’s a cyber bully. I really do. I think she has dope music. I’m not no hater. Dope music is dope music. She’s a pretty girl, but that don’t mean you can just bully everybody. It don’t work like that.”

Drake-1

Drake recently visited Hot 97 to do an interview with Angie Martinez.  What can Drake say about “YOLO” getting out of hand?  Drake said:

“What is way out of hand? It got huge, but that’s not a bad thing. It became one of those things that it was like, alright, enough now. That’s kind of what drew me to it. I heard it and I was like, ‘This is more than just some ad-lib.’ Originally it was just some Rick Ross ad-lib on ‘Take Care.’ He was like, ‘YOLO, you only live once.’ I said, ‘Man, that sounds really good. That should be a song and not just the tail end of an outro.’ So I took it and made it into a song and I text him, ‘Yo, I got a song out of that ad-lib that you gave me.’ He was like, ‘Alright, cool.’”

Drake-2

Is Drake having a beef with Kendrick due to “Control”?  He replied:

“It just wasn’t real to me. I saw him after that and it was just love, so was that real or was it just for the people? At the same time it’s like, let it be real ’cause those were harsh words. You can’t just say that and then see me like, ‘Hey man, what’s up?,’ pretending like nothing ever happened. That’s not real. To me, that’s not the nature of battling. There’s passion behind it. There’s anger behind it. I personally enjoy making great music and bodies of work over being the talk of Twitter for five days.”

“It was unexpected. In working your way up and sort of building relationships, I wouldn’t expect you to throw all the relationships out the door for the sake of being the talk of the Internet for 10 days. People don’t even care about it anymore. Now, especially this week, they’re moving on. I don’t know if it was worth it. There’s a lot of people that were mentioned that I feel like can’t really go back and f–k with that guy.[...] I think the verse was great. I understand what he was saying.”

“I am a nice guy. That’s how I was raised. I’m a cordial, very nice guy. I don’t like confrontation but I’m also not ‘the’ guy. Especially when it comes to rap. I’m ready. That’s just real.”

What is Drake’s type of girl?  Drake said:

“I don’t know who the next strong female is, but I’m ready for a strong female counterpart to share all of these experiences with. I get to go a lot of places and do a lot of great things, I’d love to have somebody that [can experience that with me.] [Angie: You want a Jada? Or a Bey?]”

oprah

Everyone deserves to take a break, even the media mogul Oprah Winfrey.  Oprah revealed that earlier this year she was having a nervous breakdown.  When she was interviewing Jason Russell, she said:

“I was sitting and listening to Jason Russell describe his symptoms…. Saying, ‘Um, this sounds pretty familiar to me.’” In the beginning, it was just sort of speeding and a kind of numbness and going from one thing to the next thing to the next thing. I will tell you when I realized that I thought, ‘All right, if I don’t calm down I’m gonna be in serious trouble.’ I was in the middle of doing voiceovers, you know? And I remember closing my eyes in between each page because looking at the page and the words at the same time was too much stimulation for my brain.”

Oprah further explained:

“I mean, I wasn’t ready to go run naked in the streets. Let’s make that very clear, but I had reached a point where I just couldn’t take in anymore stimulation.”

kordell

Kordell Stewart denied the rumor that he is gay.  During a recent interview with his estranged wife Porsha, she said “Kordell didn’t want me physically. That made me wonder, what does he want?”

Kordell recently release a statement about the rumors of his sexuality.  He explained:

“I’m very ashamed of my wife for saying something that she knows is not true at all. The rumors have never been true. I’m not gay. It is sad that she would target the homosexual community which often times lacks support to begin with. It is very disappointing that she will do anything and say anything for a minute of so-called fame. She can have that life, I just want to continue to be the best single dad and father that I can for my son.”

porsha-kordell

During Porsha’s interview with Sister2Sister Magazine, she said:

“I think a woman should look for a man who they feel they can trust and who has their best interest at heart. The way that you’ll know if a man is equally yoked to you is if your purpose in life is aligned with his. A lot of people get married and don’t know what their purpose is. Because a lot of people don’t know how to be still, stop their thoughts, stop their wants, and try to listen to hear what God wants them to do, and once He tells you what He wants for your life, you have to trust that and move on it.”

rasheeda

Rasheeda recently opened up about their problems which started during the birth of their son Karter.  When it comes to their baby boy Karter, she said:

“He’s great, he’s absolutely great! He’s just a handsome little angel. Of course you know the first month – we haven’t reached our first month yet – but yeah, it’s rough. It’s every 3 hours. Doesn’t matter the time. Twelve midnight, three in the morning, six, nine, twelve, it’s no joke.”

rasheeda2

How is Kirk as a father?

“He’s actually just amazing to be honest with you. He’s just been a great father, he’s been, you know, allowing me to get my rest as much as possible, and regardless to the fact that you can’t get past the crying that you hear from the baby, but he’s been really, really great. You know he’s always been a good father regardless of how it looked on television as far as the things he said about ‘I’m tired of raising kids,’ and whatnot, you know. He has four adult children, you know. Over 18 [years old] kids that he was more so speaking about, but as far as him in Karter’s life, he’s just been 100% just doing his damn thing.”
