Ke$ha Checks Into Rehab

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan
kesha-rehab

Just days after releasing her music video directorial debut, Ke$ha checks into rehab. The 26-year-old singer is seeking help for an eating disorder. Her facility of choice is the Timberline Knolls, just outside of Chicago. It’s the same place where Demi Lovato sought treatment back in 2010 for her eating disorder and other issues.

“I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I’ve found it hard to practice,” Ke$ha says in a statement. “I’ll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder…to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am.”

We wish all the best for Ke$ha and hope she finds the help she’s looking for. On a lighter note, if anyone can think of a lighthearted joke connecting her current hit “Timber” with the facility name, share it below.

Whether her experience playing Carrie Bradshaw’s assistant in the Sex and the City movie factored in this generous gesture or not, Jennifer Hudson just upped the ante for celebrities. The Dreamgirls actress gifted a house to her personal assistant, Walter Williams III, during the holidays. Talk about a Christmas bonus. I wonder what Jennifer Lopez’s PA received during the holiday season? I bet not even a gingerbread house ;) I kid.

Not surprisingly, Walter freaked out, dropping the house documents and shrieking like an audience member at one of Oprah Winfrey’s favorite things tapings. Thanks to Instagram we can see his huge reaction. Before you starting looking for work as a personal assistant though, it’s worth noting that Walter met the American Idol alum in the sixth grade and has been one of her closest friends since. Check out the clip below.

Before he became a star in his own right, Chris Pine was best known for being that piece of eye candy used as a love interest for young Hollywood starlets. He appeared in The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement and Just My Luck with Anne Hathaway and Lindsay Lohan respectively. With regards to the 2006 rom-com with LiLo, here’s what he had to say about his experience filming the movie.

“It was a real cyclone of insanity, like being around The Beatles. It was fascinating to watch, and in hindsight it’s really a distinct moment in someone’s life when you see what’s really wonderful about what we get to do and what’s really dangerous about it.” - Chris Pine

I can only imagine how crazy it was. That was during the peak of Lilo’s career. She was paid a whopping $7.5 million to star in the screwball disaster.

The 33-year-old actor has certainly come a long way since then. Not only does he have one lucrative franchise under his belt (Star Trek), he’s launching a potential new one in a couple of weeks, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. He’s the fourth actor to play the iconic character created by the late Tom Clancy. Alec Baldwin (The Hunt for Red October), Harrison Ford (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger) and Ben Affleck (The Sum of All Fear) previously played Jack Ryan.

robin-roberts-publicly-comes-out

There’s definitely something in the water. Celebrities who have been widely regarded as part of the LGBT community but remained mum are publicly speaking about their sexuality for the first time. Recently, Brian Boitano did it and now it’s Robin Roberts’ turn.

The 53-year-old Good Morning America anchor has reportedly been out in her private life and to her GMA team for years now. In a Facebook post on December 29, Roberts made her sexual orientation official and publicly mentioned her long time girlfriend for the first time.

“I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together,” Roberts writes on Facebook where she reflects back on what she is grateful for in her life since her bone marrow transplant last year.

An ABC spokesperson confirmed to Variety that Amber Laign is a massage therapist in private practice hailing from the Bay Area. The two have been in a relationship for ten years.

Looks like the glass slipper fit. Carly Rae Jepsen is making her Broadway debut as the titular princess in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella. The revival earned nine nominations at this year’s Tony Awards. She’ll take over Laura Osnes who’s leaving the production. The 28-year-old singer begins her 12-week run on February 4, 2014.

“Broadway has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl and I look forward to working with this incredibly talented cast to tell this classic tale. These last few years have been a real fairy tale come to life for me, so I feel especially blessed to play this part and be reminded that you must never stop dreaming!” – Carly Rae Jepsen

Before scoring the global smash “Call Me Maybe,” Jepsen attended the Canadian College of Performing Arts. Her theater credits include high school productions of Annie, Grease and The Wiz in British Columbia. Find out which classic sitcom is joining the cast as her wicked stepmother below.

most-charitable-celebrity-2013

DoSomething.org just released their annual Top 20 list of “Celebs Gone Good” and once again Taylor Swift is apparently the most giving celebrity in Hollywood. She topped last year’s list with her record $4 million donation to the Country Hall of Fame Museum- the largest sum ever given to the country organization. This year, the nonprofit cites Swift’s recent Winter White Gala in London, a benefit for homeless youth, a $100,000 donation to the Nashville Symphony which she gave on her 24th birthday as some of her do-gooding work. Not to discredit Taylor’s goodwill, but once again I’m surprised she’s the numero uno charitable celebrity out there. Right?

With their volunteer work in Ghana for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day and donation to cancer research, the boys of One Direction also made the list this year. Chime for Change and Goodwill activist Beyoncé, Reach Out Worldwide founder Paul Walker, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis round out the Top 5.

The most surprising thing about this year’s list is the absence of some individuals who made the Top 5 last year but are nowhere to be found in the Top 20. Channing Tatum and Lady Gaga, according to DoSomething.org, aren’t as charitable this year. I’m really curious to know how the nonprofit tabulates their results. Check out the rest of the list below.

2013-hottest-man-crushes

With my Model Behavior Showdown in full swing, it’s time for the studs I picked for my Man Crush series to battle it out for the 2013 title. Man Crush Showdown winners for the past three years were Dan Ewing (2012), Jonathan D. Lovitz (2011) and Scott Herman (2010). Click their names to check out the runner-ups. Who will your votes declare the winner this year?

Just like the model competition, this year’s Man Crush Showdown will only consist of one round to determine the winner. As infrequent I was with my model posts in 2013, I was even more sporadic with my crushes. I’m definitely making a promise to be much better in 2014. Check out the crushworthy guys below and vote often for your favorites. The poll will close on January 2, 2014 with the results announced the following day. May the best (sexiest) man win.

hugh-jackman-houdini-musical

It was a role Hugh Jackman wanted to play ever since he was a young boy growing up in Australia. Fresh off his well-received one-man show Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway in January 2012, the 45-year-old confirmed a more permanent return to the Great White Way. “I have been deeply fascinated by the life of Harry Houdini since I was young, and in many ways I’ve been preparing for this role my whole life,” the actor revealed about his decision to take the part.

Now it appears he’s too tied up (not in a Harry Houdini strap jacket kind of way) to take on the role. The Wolverine star has out-stunted Houdini himself and disappeared from the production. Now that’s vanishing act the famed magician would be proud of ;)
