Early this week, there were rumors that Halle Berry and Olivier’s relationship was on the rocks.  It all started when the actress was spotted in several events without her husband and at the same time Halle was not wearing her wedding ring anymore.  But now, we can be assured that these rumors are not true.

During a recent interview, the “Extant” star talked about being a mother for the second time.  She said:

How did Halle managed to balance her career and family?  Halle said:

“What I’m learning to do, trying to right now, is find the balance… my baby is always with me on set. I bring my daughter after school. I have a nursery there, a playroom for her, so I try to make it as nice as I can for them to spend time with them, see them.”

How was Nahla being a big sister?  Halle revealed:

“It’s like one of her doll babies came alive. She gets to take care of him, feed him, change his diapers, play with him, dress him up in different clothes like five times a day because she can, so she loves it.”

Isn’t she a fabulous mom?

Will and Jada Smith Will and Jada Smith

“When I was 19, I auditioned to play one of his girlfriends on Fresh Prince and they told me I was too short. But then, many years later, once I started a film career and everything, Mr. Smith decided he wanted to come and ask me to play his girlfriend again. And I had to tell him ‘no’ again. Thank goodness because I think if I had done it, we would not be married today. Because you have to meet people when you’re ready and neither one of us were ready at that time.”

Jada also revealed that it was her mom who knew that Will was the right guy for her.  She explained:

“I remember meeting him one time at Bullock’s. Bullock’s is this department store here in Los Angeles. And I was with my mother! And here comes Will. He’s like, ‘Hey Jada!’ and saying hello to my mother and just as cheery and happy as he always is. And my mother said, ‘Why can’t you date a nice guy like him?’ I said, ‘Will?! That’s the Fresh Prince! What I’mma do with him?!’ And of course, look at me now. He got me on lock down, Arsenio! He got me! Finally!”

What are your thoughts on their relationship?

Matthew McConaughey and his wife Matthew McConaughey and his wife

Matthew McConaughey revealed that he would not be where he is currently right now without experiencing tough love from his family.  McConaughey won an award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for the movie Dallas Buyers Club.  Upon accepting the award, he extends his gratitude to his wife, Camila Alves, for pushing him to become a good actor.  He also acknowledged his mother for preventing them to watch TV.  The actor said:

“A time like this makes me want to say thank you to my mother for a real reason: When we were growing up, we weren’t movie kids, we weren’t TV kids. If it was daylight you had to be outside playing. ‘We’d go, ‘Why mom, why can’t I just watch 30 minutes of TV?’ She goes, ‘Don’t watch somebody on TV do it for you, get out there and do it for yourself.’”

“Now, this many years later, that’s a pretty good recipe for an actor, to go be the subject of whatever you’re doing, so thank you, mom, for that.”

He further added:

“[I want to thank] my wife, Camila, who’s not only put up with me all this time, but, I mean, kicked my ass out the door, saying, ‘Go get it, go get it, go get it, McConaughey, my man, my king.’”

He also dedicated his award to his three children, “Kids: Levi, Vida, Mr. Stone [son Livingston]. Love you all!”

Congrats Matthew!

 Khandi Alexander and Kerry Washington

If you are one of the viewers of Scandal then you would probably scream if you knew that the mother of Oliva Pope is alive.  Oliva Pope’s mother is portrayed by actress Khandi Alexander, who is also a great fan of the show.  During her recent interview, the 56-year-old actress revealed how she was able to hide her character from everyone else, she said:

“The executive producer, Mark Wilding, called me and offered me the part. And he said, ‘The only thing I can tell you is that you’re Mama Pope and you can’t tell anybody anything. Do you want it or don’t you? Is it a yes or a no?’ I said, ‘I’m in and I won’t say anything.’ And I didn’t tell anyone. I didn’t tell my agent, my manager, my boyfriend. I didn’t tell anybody and I didn’t know anything….They knew I was doing the show but they didn’t know anything about what I was playing.”

What can she say about the fashion of her character who is only restricted to wear a prison jumpsuit?  She said:

“Oh, you have no idea. Not only do they tell me nothing about what I’m doing other than I’m going to be Mama Pope, but I worked with Lyn Paolo, the stylist, on ER for 12 years. We were so excited to work together again and I just couldn’t wait. I had visions of Chanel in my head! And I showed up and she said, ‘OK, so what size jumpsuit do you want?’ And I said, ‘Wait, what? Excuse me?’ Because I had no idea what I was doing. I said, ‘No one’s told me anything! Is it a 70′s flashback?’ She said, ‘Nope, you’re gonna be in grey. What size do you want? Do you want to eat in this jumpsuit? I can give you a large.’”

Do you like her character?

Kerry Washington Kerry Washington

This week, Kerry Washington dropped by at Ellen’s wearing a fabulous Shoshanna dress which revealed her baby bump.   Washington chatted about her pregnancy while Ellen showed her the various magazine covers of Kerry.  With regards to the covers, Kerry revealed that her mom was the one who is in charge of it.  She said:

“I put her in charge of all of that because like early on I figured, well you know, I might have a grandchild one day who wants to see this stuff, but I don’t want to live with this stuff in my house. So I send it all to my mother and she archives it. She gets to be proud.”

Kerry Washington and Ellen Kerry Washington and Ellen

Ellen also questioned Kerry about the storylines of Scandal, for instance “the hole” are actually “real.”  Kerry highly appreciated the writers of the show.  She explained:

“I do think the show is based on their imagination more than real life, but often when we talk to people from Washington they say “Oh yea….a lot of that looks familiar”.

Have you watched “Scandal”?

Terrell Owens Terrell Owens

Terrell Owens broke into tears on the Iyanla: Fix My Life show as he revealed who his father was.  In the attempt of trying to help out Terrell in his career, relationship and financial problems, Iyanla Vanzant asked the NFL player to confront his father and mother who were in Alabama.  Terrell became emotional when he revealed that his father was his neighbor and he is a married man.  He was only 11 years old when he discovered the truth.  He confronted his father by saying:

“I think everything that has happened to me…I’ve been a product of my environment. I knew I wasn’t happy inside, but I always played it off. I put a smile on my face when I knew I was hurting and I was sad inside.  Even in relationships that I had with women, I really didn’t know how to have a relationship with them. Those are things that I know I probably should have been taught as a kid and I never was. I guess the question I should have asked years ago was, ‘Why wasn’t I told?’ Why did it take me to have an interest in my sister, a liking to my sister, for me to know who my dad was?”

Terrell Owens Terrell Owens

“For me to live across the street and know that you were my dad and know that on that side of the street you had kids, you had a wife. That was a family and I wasn’t apart of that. I couldn’t understand or wrap my brain around why I was across the street and wasn’t apart of that. My mom was elsewhere and I’m staying with my grandmother and I didn’t have a dad.”

Mr. Russell, Terrell’s father responded to him by saying:

“Sometimes waiting on the right time goes a little further than…you know waiting on that right time to tell you. That’s the way it came out. It could have been sooner. It should have been sooner.[...]I was married. I couldn’t do what I wanted to do. I would like to have taken him fishing or to ball games. I have two outside kids so I had to work two jobs. I worked two jobs for 19 years to take care of them.”

Will Terrell forgave his father?

Here’s more happy news: A new addition to our ranks of Celeb-tots! Shakira has given birth to a baby boy! The announcement comes directly from the Twitter feed of her boyfriend and the father of the baby, Gerard Pique.

“Our son has been born! We are very happy! Thanks to all for your messages” announced Pique in his native Spanish. There is one tiny thing, though! Gerard’s native country is Spain, where they are celebrating Dia de los Santos Inocentes or Day of the Holy Innocents, today. This is like the April Fool’s Day, where people play pranks on each other. Since the representatives of neither celebrity have confirmed or denied this news, we still await confirmation on this one, people!
