Tara Reid Asks A ‘Blonde’ Question: ‘How Do a Whale and a Shark Have Sex?

tara

Tara Reid, 37, confused a TV audience while discussing the mating habits of animals on the Discovery Channel’s Shark After Dark program on Tuesday.

She was appearing with Sharknado co-star Ian Ziering when she asked, ‘how do a whale and a shark have sex’? Seeing the baffled expressions on the faces of host Josh Wolf and Ziering, she attempted to explain what she meant:

‘Today, I was like, all right, I don’t wanna, like, sound stupid when I do this show today, like… so I learned a little education on sharks….so I look up sharks on the internet and I see whale sharks so I’m like that must mean that a whale and a shark have sex and then it made me think how do a whale and a shark have sex?’

Seeing that this ‘explanation’ did nothing to ease their confusion, she blithely continued:

‘There is a thing called whale sharks and then I realized whales are mammals and sharks are animals so they have nothing to do with each other….so basically the dolphins have sex with each other but the sharks don’t, so then I thought how is it such a thing?”

Blissfully unaware of the effect her convoluted explanation was having on the audience, Reid continued to share her misinformation:

“But the difference is there is a whale shark which is the biggest shark in the ocean, he’s also scary and then you have the great white who’s also scary. There are over 400 kinds of shark but the whale shark is kind of interesting because he’s so mean – he’s like a killer.’

So, now you know. Is Tara Reid a world authority on whales and sharks? Or did she confirm everything that people believe about blondes but are afraid to say? Let us know in the comments feed below.

Desiree Hartsock: Chris Siegfried Always The One, Was Whole Brooks Romance Faked?

Desiree Hartsock

Desiree Hartsock has acknowledged that Chris Siegfried was never her second choice on The Bachelorette 2013. She even said she’d be willing to marry him tomorrow. That’s sweet and all.

But it raises the question of just how much the entire so-called reality TV show was actually scripted. Was there ever any genuine love interest between Hartsock and Brooks Forester at all?

In the Tuesday morning Good Morning America interview in Times Square, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried appeared for an extended discussion of the emotional The Bachelorette finale.

I’ve posted the video up top. Now I’d like to draw your attention to the segment starting at about 3:30 in.

That’s where Siegfried admits that he and Desiree Hartsock had an agreement with each other that he wouldn’t watch the segments she filmed with Forester.

“We initially talked about watching episodes and how we would handle that for our relationship going forward…We decided it would be best just to watch the segments that we shared together.”

And that tells me that they already knew how they felt about each other. But they also knew that it’s better television if she simulates an interest in somebody else.

“Brooks and I are friends,” he added.

They’re not going to come out and spell it out for you in words of one syllable. But, folks, let’s get real.

Am I saying that I now believe that there was never any genuine spark between Brooks Forester and Desiree Hartsock? That I suspect the whole falling in love and getting dumped story to be a script from beginning to end?

I guess I am.

Reality TV actors are still actors. And reality TV producers still have to come up with gimmicks to keep the viewers watching.

The Bachelorette was getting pretty durn boring. I even complained about the tedious meet the parents episode for The Inquisitr.

Then Brooks dumped Desiree. And so-called spoiler leaker Reality Steve loudly claimed against all evidence that Brooks would somehow be coming back from the dead.

And then suddenly everybody was talking about The Bachelorette, Desiree Hartsock, and Chris Siegfried. Well played, ABC.

Lamar Odom Affair: Khloe Kardashian Reportedly Confronted Husband, Threatened Other Woman

Lamar Odom Affair: Khloe Kardashian Reportedly Confronted Husband At Hotel With Another Woman

Lamar Odom seems to be caught in another cheating scandal, and Khloe Kardashian doesn’t appear to be taking it sitting down.

This week lawyer Polina Polonsky came forward to say she and Odom carried on a six-week affair earlier this summer. This comes just three weeks after 29-year-old Jennifer Robinson came forward to claim that she and Lamar had an affair that lasted a year.

The latest report of Lamar Odom’s infidelity, published this week in Star magazine, says that once Khloe Kardashian learned of the affair she decided to confront Lamar and Polina at the hotel where they staying together.

“Khloe charged into the [hotel] room and began swinging at me,” Polina claimed. “She tried to attack me!”

Polina said she and Lamar first met in early June at Roosevelt’s Hotel, where Lamar appeared to have been living.

“I was under the impression that he had left Khloe, and that’s why he was living at the Roosevelt,” she said. “He acted completely available and we definitely had a mutual attraction.”

The relationship progressed from there, and within two weeks they were spending the night together, Polonsky claims.

“After we had sex, Lamar stayed the night with me,” Polina told Star. “The next day we went back to the Roosevelt. I stayed there with him for the next couple of nights.”

Polina Polonsky said she wanted to come forward with her claims of the Lamar Odom affair not to draw attention to herself but rather to keep Khloe Kardashian at bay.

“She’s investigated my loved ones, and she personally tried to attack me,” Polonsky said. “I can’t even go home, because I’m scared that something bad will happen. I want my story to be made public.”

There may be some truth to her claims. RadarOnline.com claims that Polina Polonsky passed a lie-detector test regarding her affair claim.

Khloe Kardashian had stood behind Lamar Odom before the cheating scandals emerged. In April she came to Lamar’s defense when an ESPN report called into question his charity, saying money went to funding two elite youth basketball teams rather than the cancer research it claimed to fund.

Lady Gaga Appears Naked In Bizarre Video ‘The Abramovic Method’

Lady Gaga Appears Naked In Bizarre Video 'The Abramovic Method'

Lady Gaga appears naked in a strange performance art video inspired by in-vogue artist Marina Abramovic.

The video, titled The Abramovic Method Practiced By Lady Gaga, shows the pop queen is seen shouting at a forest, pressing crystals against her body, and walking fully nude.

For Lady Gaga, the naked video was the result of a three-day retreat at the Marina Abramovic Institute in Upstate New York. On the institute’s website, The Abramovic Method is described as a way for artists to better connect with their work and audience.

“The method helps participants to develop skills for observing long durational performances through a series of exercises and environments designed to increase awareness of their physical and mental experience in the moment,” the institute notes.

The Abramovic Method seems to suddenly be very popular among musicians. Jay-Z recently took on the “long-durational” aspect of the method, performing the song “Picasso Baby” from his recent album at a posh Manhattan art gallery for six straight hours.

Abramovic herself even joined Jay-Z on stage for part of the performance.

Lady Gaga and Abramovic seem to be quite close. They were seen together at a benefit in the Hamptons in July, and a few days ago Lady Gaga took part in a marathon reading of the science-fiction novel Solaris in a fundraiser for the institute.

Many suspect Lady Gaga’s naked video is some sort of publicity stunt for her upcoming album, ARTPOP, which itself seems to have the feel of a student art project. This week one of the album’s supposed tracks — going by “Aura” or “Burqa” — leaked on the internet, drawing criticism for its bizarre sound and lyrics.

“While it can be appreciated for it’s artistic innovation, the complex infusion of EDM, auto tune, an aside of ‘sex, dance, art, pop’ and an exhausting amount of fake accents leave this listener plainly confused with what she just heard,” wrote Billboard.

The Lady Gaga naked video can be seen here.

Kardashian Ex-Stepmother Sues Family For Defamation

Ex Kardashian stepmom sues for defamation

The Kardashian sisters ex-stepmother, Ellen Kardashian, is suing her former stepdaughters and their mother Kris Jenner for defamation.

Ellen Kardashian, nee Pearson, is also suing Ryan Seacrest Productions, and claims that the girls and the producers of Keeping Up With The Kardashians attempted to involve her in a recent plot line on the reality series. The suit alleges that a private investigator attempted to sell information he had on the Kardashians to her in order to make her look like a villain on the show. She said she refused to buy the information.

Kardashian then went on to say that the family defamed her on the show anyway, saying that she only married the late Robert Kardashian for his money. Kardashian calls Jenner a “manipulative and devious mother and ex-wife who simply used and exploited her children.” She is suing for unspecified damages.

Earlier this year, Robert Kardashian’s journal surfaced. In it, he wrote that Jenner threatened to kill an 8-year-old Kim. In another entry, he wrote that Jenner abandoned the kids to have an affair with former tennis star Todd Waterman. He said she didn’t even leave a number in case of emergency.

On Christmas Day 1989, Kardashian wrote that he was “home alone with 4 kids” because “Kris couldn’t get her act together” to be with the family.

Ellen Kardashian said the journal was authentic, and that Robert gave it to her before he died in 2003. The Kardashians denied the allegation in the journal, calling them “ridiculous and not true.” Khloe Kardashian called her “trash” and said she married Robert “on his deathbed while he was not even aware of his surroundings.” Ellen Kardashian said she was stating their father’s truth, and that she was only the messenger.

“They are my property at the disposal of whatever I so choose,” she said. “Robert would have no problem with that.”

What do you think of Ellen Kardashian’s lawsuit against her former stepdaughters?

Was Girls Star Jemima Kirke Kicked Off The Set Of Jay Z Music Video?

Kirke

Girls actress, Jemima Kirke, was reportedly kicked off the set of Jay Z’s new video for his latest single, “Picasso Baby,” according to the New York Daily News.

The performance piece for his new song features a hoard of celebrities and artists, each of whom were personally invited to appear in the audience for the video. This included Marina Abramovic and Alan Cumming, who sat on a bench whilst the hip-hop star rapped around them for seven hours.

Kirke, who was also asked to attend the shoot, can be seen n the video, where she miles and then lets her hair down whilst she is rapped to by the New York icon. Later on in the clip you can then see the Girls star hug the rapper, clutching her arms around his belly in a bear like grip.

A source, who attended the shoot at Pace Gallery, told the paper, “She was actually nuts! She kept jumping on his back like a little monkey. Someone was screaming ‘get her off him’.”

The insider then went on to add that Kirke was then pulled off the actress, before she was lead away whilst kicking and screaming, asking those involved to “let us finish.” They confirmed that Jay Z remained the consummate professional throughout the ordeal, and simply “kept rapping the whole time.”

The film’s director, Mark Romanek, has quashed these rumours though, Tweeting that Kirke didn’t go nuts on set. He wrote:

In 2010, Kirke, who is an artist herself, reportedly broke down in tears during Marina Abramovic’s, The Artist Is Present, exhibition at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, which saw her sit still for over 700 hours and stare at visitors.

Chaka Khan Responds To Lindsay Lohan Feud Rumors

Chaka Khan

Chaka Khan has responded to rumors that she and Lindsay Lohan feuded during their stints in rehab.

It was reported early Wednesday that Lohan drove Khan out of Cliffside Malibu earlier than planned with her disruptive behavior. When Khan tried to help Lohan settle down, the Mean Girls star continued to be rude.

“Chaka was really cool about everything at Cliffside, but Lindsay just pushed all of her buttons to the point where she was aggravated and tired of Lindsay’s sh*t,” a former patient said.

“Lindsay was just doing stupid stuff for attention, so Chaka told her she was childish and told her to grow up. She never lost it, but started yelling at Lindsay,” the source added. “Told her to knock it off, asking her if she came to rehab to get well, or just to piss around.”

Eventually, the source said, the 60-year-old 10-time Grammy winner cut her stay in rehab short. She also allegedly told other patients that she hated 27-year-old Lohan.

The story spread fast, which prompted Chaka Khan — real name Yvette Stevens — to squash the rumors quickly. She issued a statement through her website, and tweeted it to media outlets.

“To choose to do what is necessary to better one’s self is commendable. I applaud Lindsay Lohan for doing the work. She is a lovely young lady and I pray for her well-being,” she said.

“The battle of addiction is a serious and long process, which is why I chose to address my use of prescription medications—which came about as a result of the knee surgery I had a few years ago,” she continued. When and if necessary, I will seek alternative methods and traditional treatment to stay ahead of any potential problem.”

Lohan tweeted Khan after she posted the statement.

Welles Film Rediscovered In Italy, Restored In Cinematic ‘Miracle’

Welles Film Rediscovered In Italy, Restored

An Orson Welles film has been rediscovered and restored in what film experts are saying is a cinematic miracle.

The film Too Much Johnson was written and directed by Orson Welles, but was never finished and what was believed to be the only print of the movie was lost in a fire. But a 35mm nitrate work print of the Welles film was rediscovered in an Italian warehouse, and given to film archivists.

The 1938 slapstick comedy was made when Welles was just 20 years old, though he was already one of the biggest names in acting after a famous performance in the Federal Theater Project production of Voodoo MacBeth.

Too Much Johnson was a slapstick comedy starring Joseph Cotten, Arlene Francis, and Ruth Ford. It was filmed in three acts, though not all parts were completed. The first act, which appeared to be the most developed, showed Cotten’s character having an affair under the name Johnson, and getting chased by a jilted husband.

The movie was written as a companion to a play from Mercury Theatre, which Welles had co-founded. But the play flopped when it debuted without the movie’s backing.

After the Welles film was rediscovered, it was given to the George Eastman House, one of the world’s leading organizations in film preservation and restoration.

Not all of Too Much Johnson could be saved, however. Two reels of the film were in good shape, but a third had decomposed so badly that those working to restore it believed nothing could be done. But with the help of a Dutch restoration lab, 96 percent of the film was saved.

The Welles film rediscovered in Italy will now get a new life on the big screen. It is set for a showing in America at the George Eastman House in October, and the same month will play at an Italian silent film festival.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Luxury Home On Sale For $1.5Million

Ferris Bueller

The iconic home from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, John Hughes’ quintessential 1986 film, has gone on sale for $1.5million in the Highland Park area of Chicago, Illinois.

The abode is the house of Ferris’ best friend, Cameron Frye, played by Alan Ruck, in the movie, who, during an angry tirade, reverses his father’s luxurious car through a glass window in his garage and down into the ravine below.

You can now recreate this scene, and pretty much all of your favorite moments from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, if you have a spare $1.5million in your bank account.

The 5,300 square foot home is suspended over the wooden ravine, and features four bedrooms, as well as a separate part of the building that has its own bathroom and kitchen, whilst this pavilion can also room four cars.

The house was put up for sale back in 2011 for $1.65million, but it has now been re-listed after its owners failed to find a buyer over the last two years.

Two years before, in 2009, the owners put the house up for sale for $2.3 million, but when it didn’t sell they then decided to renovate the house.

A. James Speyer built the home in 1953, under the mentorship of famed architect Ludwig Miles Van Der Roche, who was a pioneer in the field. In 1974, David Haird designed the glass-enclosed garage, which was then used to store and show-off impressive cars to passers-by. The Chicago Tribune has revealed that the home has only ever had one family of owners.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was written and directed by the legendary filmmaker, John Hughes, who also created Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink, and The Breakfast Club.

Hughes passed away in August 2009, at the age of 59, and was labeled as the kind of teen movies for his pictures, which also helped to launch the careers of the likes of Bill Paxton, Molly Ringwald, and John Candy.
