Dakota Johnson is NOT Pregnant

Thu, 10/11/2018 - 08:15

Contrary to earlier reports, Dakota Johnson is NOT pregnant with Chris Martin’s baby. Sources close to the actress have denied the rumors all week, but Johnson addressed them herself when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The host teased the 29-year-old by telling her “That is a mighty tight outfit for someone who is pregnant.” Johnson responded with “Well, the only thing I’m pregnant with is a lot of really good ideas.” The rumor began when pink and blue balloons were released at the 50 Shades of Grey star’s birthday party. Johnson said it was all a mistake, the balloons were never supposed to be released, they just got loose and floated away. Only time will tell if she is or isn’t pregnant…about 9 months of time.

Follow Your Man

Thu, 10/11/2018 - 01:49

Tristan Thompson’s cheating has been compared to Eddie Cibrain’s infidelity, by Cibrian’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum tweeted “If I had Kardashian money & my man cheated & had to go live in another city you bet your ass I’d be having that man followed 24 seven he has got to prove himself all over again.” In March 2009, the news broke that Cibrian and singer LeAnn Rimes were having an affair on the set of their Lifetime movie. The 45-year-old Cibrian and the 36-year-old Rimes—who was married to dancer Dean Sheremet at the time—left their spouses and married each other in 2011. Glanville is now on decent terms with her ex and his new wife, which is good as they share two sons—Mason and Jake.

Lenny Dykstra Indicted

Thu, 10/11/2018 - 01:44

Ex-MLB superstar Lenny Dykstra has been indicted on three serious crimes—”possession of cocaine, possession of meth and making terroristic threats.” Dykstra was arrested in May after allegedly threatening his Uber driver with a gun. Upon arrest, no gun was found in the ex-baseball player’s possession but the cops did find some cocaine and meth. The 55-year-old tried to tell police that he was kidnapped by the Uber driver and he was fearful for his life, but the grand jury clearly didn’t buy that story and moved forward with the three charges. If convicted, Dykstra is looking at 3-5 years in prison per charge.

Selena Gomez is getting treatment for a mental breakdown. The singer was hospitalized twice in the past two weeks, the latter of which was for an emotional breakdown, and is now at a facility getting treatment.

Once admitted to the hospital, Gomez wanted to leave and when told she couldn’t, she “freaked out” and had “a meltdown.” She is currently at an East Coast psychiatric facility and is “receiving dialectical behavior therapy”—which treats various health disorders.

Cubs’ Bryant Turns Down Enormous Offer

Wed, 10/10/2018 - 13:52

Cubs’ third baseman
Kris Bryant has reportedly turned down an offer for a long-term contract
extension “well north of $200 million dollars.”

Dealing with
a shoulder injury prevented Bryant from having a “Kris Bryant type year.”

Bryant and
his agent Scott Boras, turned down the offer preferring instead to go year to
year in arbitration.

Bryant won’t
be a free agent until he turns 30. Giving him 3 years of arbitration that could
be even more lucrative should he rebound with the type of seasons he had in
2016 and 2017. However, the risk could be great should his production not
rebound or he suffers another injury.

Much to risk
and Bryant is betting on himself.

Jason Garrett Still Has a Job, Why?

Wed, 10/10/2018 - 13:50

It’s time
for the Dallas Cowboys to make a coaching change. The head coach of one the NFL’s
marquee franchises doesn’t check any of the boxes you’d like the field boss of
your team to check.

Do Garrett
or his staff create innovative offensive or defensive schemes? No.

Is Garrett
bold like many of the younger new coaches in the league like Sean McVay? No.

Have his
assistants gone on to be sought after minds for other teams? No.

Is Garrett a
motivator or an intimidator in the mode of a Bill Belichick? Hell, to the no.

Look at the
passion in which the Houston Texans played on Sunday night compared to the
plodding, uninspired football the Cowboys played.

Dak Prescott
has actually regressed from his stellar rookie year of 2016 and a team with a
great offensive line and one of the best running backs in the game chose to punt
on 4th and 1 from the Houston 42 yard line on the first possession of


Garrett is
the first coach that many other coaches around the league will rip openly as it
is no secret he does the bidding of owner Jerry Jones.

The Cowboys
are 2-3 this season and Garrett is 69-56 with 2 playoff appearances under
Jones. That’s it.

Barring a significant
turnaround Jason Garrett should be the first head coach fired this off season,
if not before.

Ronaldo Says Docs Related to Sexual Assault Are Fake

Wed, 10/10/2018 - 13:48

Ronaldo’s lawyers say that documents in which the superstar footballer
reportedly admits to raping an American woman are “pure inventions” and
labelled the ongoing case against the Juventus forward as, “an intentional
defamation campaign based on stolen and easily manipulated digital documents.”

Christiansen said that the documents were stolen as part of a 2015 hack and then
altered as he continued to stress the player’s innocence in a sexual assault
that allegedly took place in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009.

documents detail an alleged verbal exchange that took place between Ronaldo and
the victim Kathryn Mayorga during the incident in which Ronaldo appears to say
that the victim asked him to stop the assault several times. These are the documents
that Christiansen says were hacked and altered the sold to German magazine Der Spiegel,
and then published which resulted in the claim against Ronaldo coming to light.

Ronaldo and
his attorney continue to assert that the encounter was completely consensual even
though Ronaldo reached an out of court settlement with Mayorga in 2010.

said that the settlement is not an admission of wrong doing and that his client
was merely following the advice of his attorneys at the time.

Name Change

Wed, 10/10/2018 - 07:18

Kylie Jenner reveals she had a different name picked out for her daughter…well, sort of. Jenner told YouTube makeup artist James Charles that her whole pregnancy she knew that her little girl’s name would be Stormi but she had planned to spell it with an -ie. The 21-year-old dropped the ‘e’ at the last minute when confirming the name for the birth certificate.
