Martha Stewart shades Ina Garten… Brenda Song & Macaulay Culkin are engaged… Kim Kardashian accused of Photoshop… Madonna teases stadium tour… and Celebrity Big Brother reveals season 3 castListen to “Showbiz – Jan 27, 2022” on Spreaker.
Martha Stewart is throwing shade at the Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten. Earlier this month, Reese Witherspoon posted about starting and sticking to healthy habits, like drinking water, reading, and avoiding late night TV binges. Ina was trying to be funny when she posted in the comments, “That sounds great but I’m probably not doing any of those things! LOL. My formula is easier to follow. 1. Drink more large cosmos 2. Stay up late watching addictive streaming series, 3. Stay in bed in the morning playing Sudoku instead of reading a good book. 4. Spend more time (safely) with people you love. In a pandemic, I do what I can!” Obviously, Ina was joking, but Martha fails to see the humor in it. When “People” magazine asked Martha about what Ina had posted, she said, “I do not agree about taking to drink to cope with things like the pandemic. To me that’s not charming. To me it’s continuing to work really hard, to be as productive as I possibly can be, to enjoy my grandchildren.” But then, Martha used the opportunity to promote her new wine partnership, 19 Crimes Martha’s Chardonnay! She said that while she’s not a big drinker, she’s still hoping her Chardonnay will “sell like crazy.”
Macaulay Culkin has finally accepted that we will always know him as that kid from “Home Alone.” And I remember watching “Suite Life of Zack & Cody” with my daughter and our favorite character was London Tipton, played by Brenda Song. Well, Macaulay and Brenda met in Thailand when they were both cast in the movie “Changeland,” and their lives were changed forever. They fell in love. They had a baby boy the named Dakota last April, and now, it looks like they’re getting married. Macaulay and Brenda haven’t made an announcement but they don’t have to. That gigantic rock on her left hand is doing ALL the talking.
In the latest Kim Kardashian news, she got caught in another photoshop fail. Kim recently posted some pictures of herself on the beach, modeling her Skims. In one of the pics, her leg was strangely elongated between the knee and the calf — an obvious editing fail. When the Internet started calling her out on it, the photo mysteriously disappeared. But once it’s online, it lives forever and plenty of people got that screenshot and shared it. Meantime, Kim and Pete are still going strong. They were both invited to Jeff Bezos’ mansion for dinner earlier this week and then went back to Pete’s hotel afterward. A source says Pete has been taking a lot of jobs in LA recently, trying to find any excuse to fly out to the West Coast and hang out with Kim. But that’s what you do when you’re falling in love!
Madonna went Instagram Live yesterday to take questions from her fans. One of the most often-asked questions was, “When are you putting out new music?” Madonna answered, “I’m so dying to make new music, you can’t even imagine. I feel like I’ve been deprived of air.” Madonna said she’s working on music with artists she wouldn’t name. She said it’s a secret. And then people started asking if she’d tour again. Madonna got real excited and said, “Hell yeah! I have to. Stadium, baby. Me and Britney, what about that? Not sure if she’d be into it, but it would be really cool.” And then she said they could reenact that kiss from the MTV Awards way back in the day. Somebody needs to make that tour happen ASAP.
