“City of Gold” film screening and Q&A With Jonathan Gold

Written by , Posted in General


I’m told by a close confidante that City of Gold is one of the best documentaries out there and just as I was about to rent it, I received a welcome email from The Wiltern about a special screening followed by a Q&A with Jonathan Gold himself. The renowned Los Angeles Times food critic is one of the first reviewers in Los Angeles to cover family-owned restaurants in the ethnic enclaves of lesser-known neighborhoods. The exclusive event is in partnership with the LA Times, and tickets to the October 2 documentary, Q&A and tasting party can be bought HERE. Partial proceeds will benefit Food Forward.

Scott Eastwood Covers GQ Australia — Talks Taylor Swift, Clint Eastwood, and more.

Written by , Posted in General

I must admit my unfair assumption that Scott Eastwood was nothing but a pretty face riding the connections of his father’s career, but after reading his interview with GQ Australia, I’ve changed my mind. Read some quotes from his interview below, and click HERE for more. 

On the tragic death of his girlfriend

Her airbag exploded. It shot a projectile through her body. It split her spine, and um… I’ve never told anybody that. I’ve lost friends before; I’ve lost some great friends. But, I had never lost someone I had been really intimate with, you know, like in that way, in a relationship. I think that really affected me in a way that… I don’t know. Maybe it’s made it harder for me to date.”

On his role in Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” video

[My agents] were saying things like, ‘Why would you want to go be Taylor Swift’s boy toy?’ And I go, ‘Well, why wouldn’t I? Are you kidding?

On Clint Eastwood’s parenting style when he found out Scott left his 14-year-old sister at a party alone.

He popped me and said, ‘You don’t ever leave your sister at a party. EVER.’ And it was very old-school, very old-school of him. He wasn’t afraid. None of this new-age bullshit where you can’t even smack the kid because everyone’s afraid of being judged or whatever. That wasn’t the way that shit went down in that family.

On having more success with women as a bartender than an actor

“That was probably the wildest time… It still beats out being in movies or whatever. It still beats out all that, a thousand times.”

RHONY Finale — Luann Confronts Tom Over Cheating

Written by , Posted in General

Aside from the actual betrayal, one of the worst part of infidelity is the embarrassment. If your partner’s betrayal is public and you choose to forgive their indiscretion, then you’re double plagued — because your friends are aware of it. And for Luann de Lesseps of The Real Housewives of New York City, now her entire fan base knows about it. Her fiance was caught on camera kissing another woman, and Bethenny Frankel broke the news with a series of flip-o-gram photos. Apparently, his kiss-capade went on for over an hour, and he “doesn’t remember” any of it. Watch the clip below, and take a moment to ask yourself if what on earth would motivate anyone to put themselves in the boxing ring for this public torture. Oh right . . . money.

Ryan Lochte Fesses Up With on ‘Today’ — Or does he?

Written by , Posted in General


It’s a bit ridiculous that Today’s website houses a title about Ryan Lochte taking “full responsibility” for his faulty accusation of a Rio robbery, especially because his interview answers suggest he might have a little more work to do. Though he does call his behavior “immature and intoxicated,” he doesn’t fully seem contrite. That being said, Lochte doesn’t seem like the brightest bulb, so perhaps that played a role in his responses. As for what actually happened, news reports suggest that Lochte and his friends vandalized a gas station bathroom during some drunken hijinks, and when asked to pay for the damage before leaving, they complied. Lochte still saysa gun was present when they were asked to pay, but that story still remains contested. See both interviews below, beginning with his apology.

Shonda Rhimes Guest Edits Good Housekeeping’s Awesome Women Awards

Written by , Posted in General


When you think of a strong, talented woman, Shonda Rhimes immediately comes to mind. The creator of television’s top shows chose to guest edit Good Housekeeping’s first-ever Awesome Women Awards for September’s “Connected Women” issue, and according to Rhimes, she was “excited by the idea that there would be an entire issue devoted to celebrating the awesomeness of women.” For a full list of honorees, click HERE. Enjoy some select quotes from Rhimes below, including what character she most identifies with, and the evolution of Meredith’s Grey’s character.
Shonda on how believing in yourself can make you an Awesome Woman: “The only difference between a woman and an awesome woman is how a woman defines herself, frankly. And what you choose to do with your life. I think if you believe yourself to be an awesome woman you are an awesome woman and, in general, you behave as an awesome woman. If you don’t believe yourself to be one, then you don’t. It’s really about what you believe about yourself.”

 

Shonda on the secret to life—‘nobody knows anything’: “I wish every awesome woman knew that the secret to life is that nobody knows anything. And nobody is better than you are. People deal with so much insecurity and spend so much time thinking, That person is better, so I couldn’t possibly try this. Yes, you can! Everybody puts themselves in little pockets and holds themselves back, but there’s no reason to. Make your own space.”

 

On how she comes up with her character ideas from her hit shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal: “People always ask me where I get my ideas from, where I get my story ideas from – I don’t know. To me, these women, in my head, they are real, and I try to make them as real as possible. I try to make them people you want to be friends with, people you want to spend time with. That’s always my goal… It’s not a business; it’s not a factory. The secret sauce is that it’s just creative.”

 

On the inspiration behind Grey’s Anatomy character Dr. Meredith Grey (played by cover star Ellen Pompeo):“That’s just changed so much over many years. I think in the very beginning she was a little bit me, a little bit Betsy Beers, my producing partner – somebody very new, somebody starting out in a new job. I had no idea how to make television when I started this job. Betsy had a mother who had Alzheimer’s. We sort of had this mix of things we had been talking about. But really – she went to Dartmouth, I went to Dartmouth. There were just pieces of her that fell like that. But the rest of it is just the secret sauce.”

 

On the strong, competitive female characters on her shows and who they’re modeled after: “I keep getting asked how I write about such smart, strong women, and my response is, “What’s the alternative?” Weak, stupid women? They’re just normal people, not role models – if you’re aspiring to be like any of them, something’s a little bit wrong. You may want to dress like one or have her job, but do not aspire to be her!”

 

The reaction from fans that surprised her most: “I was very surprised when [Grey’s Anatomy character] Derek died. I think I was surprised by how strong the reaction was. And I think I was surprised because in Season 11, to have that violent of an outpouring for a character, in show that – for us, you start making a show and think, “Oh, you know, it’s Season 11.” You think that people aren’t paying as much attention. But to have it be that big of a deal to have Timemagazine write an article on how to mourn a fictional character. There was a lot of that and it was startling to me to see how much they were not coping. It felt like somebody real had died.”

 

On which of her characters are most like her: “I don’t think I could ever even say that. I think all of my characters, down to [Scandal’s] Huck who likes to hurt people, all of my characters are a piece of me to some degree because they come from my brain. There’s no way to have a character who’s not me. And I think every writer feels that way. They all spring from the same place.”

‘I Am Cait’ Gets The Axe 

Written by , Posted in General

‘I Am Cait’ was cancelled, and after watching two episodes of the show, it’s certainly no surprise. First, none of the Kardashians/Jenners are stronger than the sum of their parts, and second, Caitlyn Jenner is far from compelling. Bruce spent most of his life in the Kardashian closet (literally) as a recluse and rarely embraced the cameras. One could argue he was irritable because of his gender issues, but after watching ‘I Am Cait,’ it’s clear that is not the case. Lastly, the show had to basically buy her friends, because just about everyone who appeared was a “new” connection. And since her family refused to guest, there was no one left to insert any compelling content. Some people just aren’t meant for their own show, and I don’t think Bunim/Murray was at all equipped for what should have been a docu-series about each surgery and stage of her transition. I’m guessing Cait didn’t want to go that route, but that’s the interesting part. Without it, it’s just a show about someone’s not-at-all-interesting daily life.

Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Settle Divorce: Release Best Statement Ever

Written by , Posted in General

Johny Depp’s attorney, Laura Wasser, is a genius. Though I can’t verify she’s solely responsible for Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s joint divorce statement, I can say that as a lawyer myself, it’s borderline poetic. TMZ reported that Heard and Depp’s settlement was held up by their joint statement, as Heard wanted Depp to admit his alleged abuse. Depp refused, and they instead both decided on the statement below, which says, “Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain.” Confused? Well, their accusations are contradictory, so it’s impossible for “neither party to make a false statement.” Someone is lying, but based on their jigsaw puzzle of word play, we will never know who it is.

“Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm. Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity.”

They settled on $7 million, which is also interesting, since Heard says it will be donated. It’s doubtful that will dent Depp’s wallet in any capacity, but it sure is a high settlement for such a short marriage. But to quote William Cosgrove, “Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned,”

Adele Turned Down the Super Bowl

Written by , Posted in General


In case you ever wondered about Adele’s artistic integrity or desire for fame, wonder no more, because the vocal powerhouse just turned down the Super Bowl halftime show, explaining that the biggest event of all time is not really about the music, and she doesn’t dance. It’s an interesting assessment, especially considering some of our greatest acts have graced the stage, but it certainly shines on a spotlight on the idea that it’s become more about the fireworks than the vocals, and from what I understand, most singers don’t sing live anyhow. Kudos to Adele for knowing her limitations, and for leaving it to the more . . . showy acts.
