Ricky Martin on “Dancing With the Stars”… Prince William and Kate Middleton’s anniversary… Craig Ferguson’s announcement… Lawsuit against Rihanna’s… and Taylor Swift is trying to reconnect with Selena Gomez
Ricky Martin was the guest judge for Latin night on “Dancing With the Stars.” Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy was fine as she and her partner Derek Hough danced and earned a 36 out of 40, but as she was being interviewed by Erin Andrews, you could tell that something wasn’t right. Amy kept whispering in Derek’s ear and then turning back to Erin, plastering a huge pageant girl smile on her face. It turns out, Amy was in tremendous pain. As she was leaving the dance floor, she turned to say something to Derek and heard something crack. She was taken to the hospital with a shoulder injury. Danica McKeller had to deal with her pain during her salsa with Val Chmerkovskiy. She fractured a rib during rehearsals and was in tremendous pain, which was obvious to everyone. But at the end of the night, it was NeNe Leakes who was eliminated from the competition.
Today is Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third wedding anniversary! The traditional gift is leather, but modern gift-givers are supposed to give crystal or glass. And I guess William went with crystal, as in the face of the $6000 Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch he gave his wife. He even had a sapphire embedded on the watch face to match her Cartier engagement ring, which once belonged to Princess Diana. The Royal Family apparently has a thing for Cartier. Diana also had a Cartier watch engraved for Prince WIlliam as a birthday gift to him one year.
Craig Ferguson stunned his audience during the taping of his show last night when he announced that after 10 years, he is “consciously uncoupling” from “The Late Late Show.” He’ll leave at the end of the year. Craig said, basically, he doesn’t know what he’s going to do next. No replacement has been announced.
Rihanna’s former bodyguard has filed a lawsuit against her, claiming she made “nauseatingly offensive” statements about him in emails to his business partner — emails that cost him his reputation and business. Geoffrey Keating served as Rihanna’s head of security from October 2012 until July 2013, which is when these alleged emails were sent. Keating filed the lawsuit in Dublin, Ireland, and the judge granted a motion to have Rihanna served with papers here in the US.
Taylor Swift might not be the best girlfriend, but she’s a GREAT friend to her girlfriends. And even though Selena Gomez has cut her out of her life — even dropping her from Instagram! — Taylor is doing her best to reconnect with her former BFF, calling and emailing but getting no response. HollywoodLife.com is reporting that Selena ins’t “in the mood” to rekindle her friendship with Taylor. Basically, she doesn’t want to hear Taylor say “I told you so!” when it comes to Justin Bieber.
