Martha gets salmonella from turkeys
December 6, 2012
Martha Stewart was stricken with salmonella after handling too many Thanksgiving turkeys. The domestic diva told us while shopping for art at Art Basel Miami that she came down with the infection late last month, forcing her to cancel a series of appearances and meetings. While perusing paintings at Lehmann Maupin gallery’s booth — and taking photos of some well-dressed buyers for her blog — Stewart told Page Six: “I never get sick, but I came down with salmonella. I think I caught it because I was handling so many turkeys around Thanksgiving. I was on the ‘Today’ show, I did a number of other [Thanksgiving] appearances. It really hit me hard and I was in bed for days. It was terrible.” But a now-healthy Stewart added there was a bonus: “I lost some weight, though.” She added, “I haven’t bought any art yet, but I might if I see something I like.”

The cast of "Argo" will receive the Ensemble Performance Award at the 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival's Awards Gala, PSIFF organizers announced on Wednesday.
The festival release promised that cast members Ben Affleck (who also directed the film), Alan Arkin and Bryan Cranston will attend the gala; the film's cast also includes John Goodman, Victor Garber, Tate Donovan, Scoot McNairy, Kyle Chandler, Clea DuVall and others.
"Argo features a plethora of colorful characters brought to life by an outstanding acting ensemble,” said festival chairman Harold Matzner in a press release announcing the award.
With the Palm Springs honor, Affleck has completed a January film-festival double-play; he is also being honored at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the other early-year fest that pays tribute to the past year's accomplishments and tries to assemble a lineup of potential Oscar nominees.
The Awards Gala will be held on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013.
What would HBO’s gritty, Emmy-nominated fantasy epic Game of Thrones look like if it aired on teen-friendly network The CW? There’d be fewer boobs, for one thing, and less edge — but even more angst. Just for fun, we made a fake promo for Westeros’s hottest soap.
First photo from There and Back Again (out July 18, 2014), with Orlando as Legolas and Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans).
Why Legolas is back:
“He’s [elven king] Thranduil’s son, and Thranduil is one of the characters in The Hobbit, and because elves are immortal it makes sense Legolas would be part of the sequence in the Woodland Realm,” director Peter Jackson explains.
“Bard is an interesting character, but [in the book] he’s kind of a random character who comes in after the fact,” says screenwriter and producer Philippa Boyens. “We take more time introducing him. We know from what follows that he was a father, so we [explore] that. I don’t think we take liberties, because it’s all there in the storytelling.”
Grizzly Bear's Ed Droste Upset About Grammys, Justin Vernon Reminds Him Grammys Are Bullshit
Last night, the nominations for the 2013 Grammy Awards were named. Frank Ocean, Fiona Apple, Jack White, M83, the Black Keys, and many more are up for awards. But not Grizzly Bear, which appears to have upset the band's Ed Droste, who expressed his feelings in a string of Tweets last night. His thoughts provoked Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, who took home several awards last year, to reply with words of encouragement for Droste and disdain for the Grammys. It seems winning those Grammys has not changed Vernon's feelings towards them.
Here's how the conversation went down. First, Droste described his sad (":(") feelings:
- 2k12 has been a mixed vibe.
- We won't win the Grahmees! :(
- So the Grammies are literally based off sales and nothing else?#bummerzone
- Super relieved Taylor Swift is up for another award. Was worried she didn't have enough! #phew
He then @-replied Vernon:
- @blobtower bb, want to know the Grammy secret! <3
- Don't know how you managed to infiltrate @blobtower, what's the secret?
- or maybe we gotta make better music :/ point is a year ago I was so excited you were nominated, and nobody from "our world" :(
Vernon then explained why he hates the Grammys:
- this is why i hate the grammies. because it allows you to question what you've done. don't question what you’ve done Ed.
- y'alls music is pure as fuck and there is nobody making music like you and i think it's truly unique. the grammies aren’t a measure of much that is calculable or quantifiable by our own contexts for music. why you create is most important.
- All this being said, FUCK those morons for not knowing enough about GB [Grizzly Bear] #jordongotcutfromhighschoolbasketball
Finally, Droste said, "thanks boo! Not really questioning what we've done, definitely questioning other things tho."
RIP BonnyBear's Grammy legacy
Before Cory Monteith came on the show today, Ellen played a clip from Glee in which his character Finn and Jane Lynch’s character Sue Sylvester fight over the Glee team’s Nationals trophy, which Sue Sylvester declares she wants to run over with her car.
Cory Monteith and Ellen discussed the last time he was on the show, when they did a segment where Cory Monteith wore an ear piece and Ellen told him what to say to prank a yoga instructor. Ellen said it was the only time they did that segment where someone got so mad they left.
Cory Monteith said he really enjoyed doing that segment.
“I just have to say, I don’t even have to be a real guest, I’ll come back any time you want,” he said.
Ellen congratulated Cory Monteith on the People’s Choice award. She said she knew how hard it must be to do the show with both acting, dancing and singing, but that they seemed like they had fun.
“We’re like this family. At first we didn’t know how the show was going to do.” “We were all coming from this different places in life. Then all of a sudden, our lives were changed.”
Ellen read a tweet from a fan of the show who said, “Can you imagine if Ellen asked Cory if he knows what Monchele is? I would die.”
“Of course I know what Monchele is,” Cory Monteith said. Monchele is a fan combination of Cory Monteith’s name and fellow Glee actress Lea Michele, who have been rumored to be dating for a while.
Ellen said, “People think that you’re a couple.”
“We are,” Cory Monteith said, “Of course we’re a couple.”
He then shared the story of his weekend with Lea Michele. The two went snowboarding in Canada for Lea Michele’s first time. He said he thought she did very well and the snowboarding instructor agreed with him.
Cory Monteith stayed around to play a holiday came called “Stuff Your Stockings” with an audience member. The girl chosen from the audience was very excited and gave him a big hug when she got down to the stage.
For the game, they both had to put on giant parachute pants that Ellen called, “granny panties” and stuff as many giant Christmas balls into their pants as possible.
The audience member won and received a Canon L Camera as a prize.
Might as well start at the beginning! The “breakdown” for the role (that is, the notification that goes out to agents and actors as to what casting is looking for) read something like, “4-5 feet tall, possibly malformed, childlike.” Now, I’m short — 5 feet exactly. But I’m proportionate, darn it! There’s not much I can do to prepare for that! So I suited up in my best baby doll dress, and I walked into the audition waiting room to find a room full of little people. My first thought was that I needed to have a sit-down with my agent, explain the difference between “little” and just “not big.” So I already felt like I was at a disadvantage. Besides, it’s American Horror Story! They’re going to cast the real freak! And, well, they cast me. The audition itself was unusual in that they didn’t give us Pepper’s actual part to read. But that’s of course because the role was under such tight wraps. I didn’t know well after I was cast what the role even was! They basically had us read one of Constance’s (Jessica Lange’s) monologues from the first season, which had obviously already been cast, and then do a short improv, as if we were a child. I think they just wanted to see if we could act. I remember feeling like I’d nailed it, for a giant. But still didn’t expect a call back.
Next came a meeting with the special effects makeup department. They took dozens of pictures of my head, asked me all sorts of covert questions, i.e. “Are you claustrophobic?” “Will you cut your hair?” Again, they couldn’t let on to what they were doing until I was officially cast, but I could tell this was not your typical “nurse number 3 to the left” type role!
Then, once it was official, I underwent a series of makeup meetings and tests. They had evidently manipulated the photos of my head to see what I would look like with the prosthetics, and that’s how the role was cast. Now, knowing what I would look like, I could begin to research this condition (microcephalia) and prepare for the role. I watched Tod Browning’s Freaks, and anything and everything “Schlitzie.” (He was the inspiration behind this character, after all.) I do a lot of comedy — big, over-the-characters mostly — so it was no mystery as to why I’d landed this part. But at the same time, I knew this was more than some silly, three-minute sketch at the Groundlings (where I performed many years, whose work I love and respect). This was a real person with a real condition, so it was important I play her very straight, without an inkling of mockery or making fun.
I find the makeup really informs the character. You get those big ears and nose and brow on, and boom! It’s Pepper-time! The entire process takes about two and a half to three hours, and that’s with two men working the entire time! Those first makeup tests especially took much longer — Mike Mekash, Christopher Nelson, Jason Hamer, Eryn Krueger Mekash — the entire Tinsley makeup crew is incredibly meticulous. They literally place freckles and veins like I’m a work of art! But then, that’s what makes for an Emmy-nominated makeup crew. There’s really nothing they can’t do. The prosthetics consist of a forehead complete with punched-in eyebrows, a nose, ears, and even a bumpy little spine-piece for my back. Again, depending upon the wardrobe, no one even sees that, but that’s the level of detail we’re talking about. I have fake teeth, which of course change the shape of my face (and speech). There’s even a wacky lens for one of my eyes. It’s subtle, but effective (it’s disturbing having someone look at you, but not quite look at you, you know?). It blinds me in that eye, and you know how they say, “Good acting is all in the eyes”? Well, in my case, it’s all in the eye!
Come to think of it, the only thing that’s truly mine is the hair (or what little they left of it). At first they toyed with a bald-cap — and believe me, it looked phenomenal. I personally saw no need to shave my head. But better to leave the makeup questions to the makeup professionals. Besides, given Pepper’s condition, it was important to make my head look as small as possible, so it was obviously better to not have to stuff a bunch of hair into a cap. I think at one point they’d talked about using CGI to actually shrink my head, but I’m sure it was easier and cheaper to have me shave my head. Besides, the makeup crew takes great pride in not having to rely on such tricks. It was quite clever of them actually. Instead of making my head small, they built up my body by putting me in a fat suit. (And all that time spent slaving at the gym!). Ultimately, the end-product is well worth sacrificing my hair and sitting countless hours in the makeup chair. It’s a true gift of a character, on a major hit show. I didn’t think twice about it. I figured I’m an actress first, a person with hair second. And well, they provided me with a wig identical, if not better, than my actual hair. Now everyday is a great hair day!
I remember that first big shave so clearly: I was cackling hysterically, the hair/makeup crew was chanting my name, and later went on and on, calling me “the bravest actress in the world.” I’m not saying it wasn’t a tad nerve-wracking. I worried I’d never get laid again! But then my fears subsided when I got asked out through a car window the very next day. And now it takes me all of three minutes to get ready in the morning! Not to mention I’m in this special, little club with Natalie Portman and Siggy Weaver. And while I’ll be sad to say goodbye to Pepper when the season is over, I look forward to pulling a Britney in the window of some chichi salon!
Another challenge was not being able to talk about it! My friends and family knew I got a part — and that something was up or I wouldn’t suddenly be wearing this wig around — but I never let on as to what that role was. They just assumed I had a penis coming out of my head! Even on set they kept me a secret. Until the first episode aired, I had to walk around the lot with a shroud over my head (and a PA to guide me). I’d zip by in a golf cart, and tourists would assume they’d seen Lady Gaga!
Then of course all my on-set time-wasters are gone. I can’t take phone calls because my ears are buried in silicone. I can’t text because the iPhone doesn’t recognize my silicone fingers. I can’t graze at the craft services table, because that would require taking out my teeth. I’m not complaining. It’s just part of the unusual circumstances of being Pepper.
But that’s not the half of it. That first day on set, no one wanted to make eye-contact with me. They assumed they’d cast a real microcephalic. Then, they began to warm up, figuring, “Oh! It’s an actress! In makeup! We’re shooting a TV show!” Immediately the hierarchy of star vs. guest star vs. co-star vs. background was dispelled. Everyone wanted to know what I actually looked like, how long it took, did it itch, etc. Then Ryan Murphy came over, took one look, and said, “Pepper is the best.” He was referring to the makeup, of course, but still, it made me feel pretty good! I remember that first day was very hot, so my two makeup guys were on hand, fanning me. I remember Chloe [Sevigny] and some of the other stars asking, “Yo, how do I get a fan?” Everyone has been so friendly and nice. Early on, Jessica Lange brought her grandchildren over to meet me. That was a highlight.
I got recognized on the street for the first time recently. I was immediately hit with a rush of mixed feelings: pride/personal achievement and complete self-revulsion. Do I really look like Pepper?! Obviously not. Still, it’s great that she’s so popular. … Now if Pepper will just share her success with Naomi!
Jessica Biel covers the January 2013 issue of ELLE US, modelling an embellished Dior dress.
On choosing her wedding dress: “I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least. [Giambattista Valli] had created that same fabric in a fuschia-and-pink combination for a dress in a previous collection, and I asked him if he could create that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink. It was a bit of a leap of faith at the time, but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined. [Putting it on], I felt like I had made the right choice. I felt elegant. And it moved like a dream.”
Giambattista Valli at Hôtel Plaza Athénée: “This was like being in bed with your best girlfriend, chatting. Jessica has very fluid style—She’s never contrived or overdone.”
On the best part of being a newlywed, Biel wrote exclusively to ELLE from her honeymoon, rumored to be in Tanzania: “Honeymooning is the best thing about being a newlywed. I wish I could honeymoon forever.”
Biel’s thoughts on marriage:“It means always having someone there to open the pickle jar…to share the ups and downs with, have adventures with. Someone to go swimming naked with. That kind of thing.”
On Justin Timberlake’s domestic side: “He bakes pies. He’s Southern, so he’s got all this influence from his grandma. He does a three-layer pie…and blueberry crunch cake, which is pretty unbelievable. It doesn’t happen all that often, thank God. Otherwise, it would be a big problem.”
On plans for the future: My goal now is to work with great directors. Small role, big role, medium-size role—it doesn't matter. I just want to work with someone who's going to push me to a scary, exciting place that I've never been before."
It joins the acclaimed timeslot of cancelled shows Emily Owens, Hellcats, Ringer, Melrose Place & Life Unexpected.
Cult, starring The Vampire Diaries' Matt Davis, Jessica Lucas and Robert Knepper, will take over the recently canceled Emily Owens, M.D.'s Tuesday slot next year - following Hart of Dixie. The very meta Cult will launch at 9 p.m. Feb. 19.
In a nutshell, Cult is a show within a show. Here's why: "Investigative journalist Jeff Sefton (Davis) has learned to laugh off his younger brother Nate’s relentless string of obsessions, especially his latest rant that a hit TV show intends to harm him. However, when his brother mysteriously disappears, Jeff takes Nate’s paranoia seriously and in the process uncovers the dark underworld of the TV series Cult and its rabid fans, who are obsessed with the show’s charismatic cult leader, Billy Grimm (Knepper). As the show’s gruesome plot twists begin to play out in the real world, Jeff enlists the help of young research assistant Skye (Lucas) in a race to save Nate and unravel the mystery behind the TV series whose hardcore fans would literally kill to see what happens next."
The BBC today announces that, after three years, Alan Davies is to return to our screens in Jonathan Creek for a brand new one-off 90-minute special.
Commissioned by Danny Cohen, Controller BBC One and Cheryl Taylor, former Controller Comedy Commissioning, this popular, award-winning comedy drama, to be produced by BBC In-House Comedy, is due for transmission at Easter 2013 on BBC One.
In The Clue of the Savant’s Thumb, Creek and fellow investigator Joey Ross (Sheridan Smith – Accused, Gavin & Stacey) are drawn into a complex case involving a secret society, seemingly supernatural events at a girls’ boarding school, and the miraculous disappearance of a body in front of three witnesses.
Alan Davies says: “The new story has more than the usual amount of twists and surprises, and I'm very much looking forward to sleuthing again. I can't wait to join Sheridan Smith on set again; we're very lucky to have her. It's nearly 17 years since I first auditioned for the part; the duffle coat is always on standby, even if the periods of duffle-hibernation are quite long these days”.
Pete Thornton, Creative Head, BBC In-House Comedy says: “A new Creek script from David is always a joy, and this one is especially brilliant. With the dream team of Alan Davies and Sheridan Smith back on board, we’re looking forward to delivering a really special Easter treat for BBC One audiences next year”.
The Clue of the Savant’s Thumb will be written by the show’s creator David Renwick (Love Soup, One Foot in the Grave), Produced by Rosemary McGowan and Executive Produced by Pete Thornton. Filming will take place late this month.
Still pressed that they won't bring Maddy's character back, tbh.
BOOOOOOOW! Xtina serving some Jujubee realness on this future country winning single!

Rick Ross Cancels Concerts After Receiving Gang Threats
So Rick Ross is being forced to cancel concerts in the face of threats by Gangster Disciples members who are upset that the rapper has invoked the name of a gang founder in one of his songs.
In YouTube videos, gang members warn Ross, 36, that he will end up in a hearse unless he pays tribute for using Larry Hoover’s name in “B.M.F. (Blowing Money Fast).” Hoover, serving life in federal prison, co-founded the Gangster Disciples in Chicago in the late-1960s.
The gang, which has grown to include chapters nationwide, has also accused Ross of coopting its Star of David logo on the cover of his new mixtape “The Black Bar Mitzvah.”
Another gang leader, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory of the Black Mafia Family, is also mentioned in the song, which shares an acronym--“BMF”--with the Ross song itself. Like Hoover, Flenory is a federal inmate (though he has a release date in 2032).
Ross, of course, has a working familiarity with the penal system, having served previously as a corrections officer in Florida. The rapper (real name: William Leonard Roberts) initially denied working as a screw, but eventually fessed up when TSG published documents from his Department of Corrections personnel file.
Those records showed that Ross swore a loyalty oath upon getting hired and agreed to “shoot an inmate attempting to escape.” His perfect attendance record earned him a nifty “Certificate of Appreciation” from corrections officials. In his 1997 resignation letter (submitted 18 months after his hiring), Ross thanked his superiors for “your interest in my career and for the experience I’ve gained through my employment.”
Ross--who has an encyclopedic knowledge of hoodlums of every stripe--copped his handle from notorious L.A. drug kingpin “Freeway” Ricky Ross, who earlier this year lost a lawsuit brought againt the performer for boosting his name and identity.
When Prince William and Kate's official announcement that she is pregnant came Monday, the palace said she was "expecting a baby."
But in light of the fact that the Duchess of Cambridge is also suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a form of acute morning sickness, there has been growing speculation that she may, in fact, be expecting twins.
According to the National Institutes of Health, the Duchess's rare condition tends to appear more often in women carrying twins.
So what would it mean for the royal family if Kate, 30 – who was discharged from the hospital Thursday – were to deliver two little royals? A pair of heirs?
Nope, royal experts tell PEOPLE. In fact, it's all a bit complicated.
The firstborn twin would have a completely different path than his or her sibling, says royal historian Robert Lacey, author of The Queen: A Life in Brief: "The first child to appear will have precedence. Whichever one comes out first will be the heir – and it will be the call of the obstetrician if there is a caesarean section."
And the obstetrician will make that delivery based on the location of the babies during labor, Mark Johnson, Professor of Obstetrics at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, tells PEOPLE.
Says Johnson: "If delivering vaginally, the first baby to enter the pelvis will be delivered first. If delivering by c-section it very much depends on the which baby is closest to the incision, generally that will be the lower of the two babies."
A year ago, the British government voted to modernize the rule of succession so that in the event of twins, a firstborn girl would not lose the title of heir if a boy were to be subsequently born to the royal couple. But that rule hasn't been implemented yet.
Under the current law of the land, says Lacey, "If the twins are a girl first followed by a boy, the boy will be next in succession."
When or if the law is changed, adds Lacey, "the boy would be ousted by his sister."
If Kate is pregnant with twins, William, who will surely be present for the births, will be able to see firsthand which baby is born first. But in the past that wasn't the case, adds Lacey.
In other eras, "the Home Secretary was on hand in the hospital to ensure there was no foul play," says Lacey, "since there were fears that if the firstborn turned out to be a girl, she might get swapped for a substitute baby boy – and smuggled into the bed in a warming pan."
Rich girl Lena Dunham sold a book of "frank and funny advice on everything from sex to eating to traveling to work" to Random House for $3.7 million in October on the strength of an illustrated 66-page proposal. Here it is, weighing in at $56,000 or so per page.
Dunham, a 26-year-old described by Random House as "a rare literary talent," proposed to structure the book as an advice tome in the tradition of Helen Gurley Brown's Having It All. To judge by the proposal—which has been described elsewhere but is published here for the first time—it's more of an invitation to get lost in the mind of a girl who is lost in her own mind. It's basically literary lifecasting: Fully 13% of the proposal's pages are devoted to reproducing a diary Dunham kept of what she ate in 2010. And she intends to devote an as-yet-unwritten chapter to "a collection of emails that screw the pooch, jump the gun, and terrify men." Also, Dunham thinks she has the "beginnings of a FUPA (fat upper pussy area)" and wants to write about that, in her book of advice for women.

Here are some sentences you will find in it:
•I went to my first Women's Action Coalition meeting at age three.
• I've been in therapy since I was seven.
•When I was about nine I developed a terrible fear of being anorexic.
•When I was about nine I wrote a vow of celibacy.... I knew my mother had waited until the summer after she graduated [high school].
•At 24 I felt like an old maid....
•When I got to college I suddenly had the sense that my upbringing hadn't been very "real."
•Once I had a vegan dinner party which was chronicled for the style section of the New York Times.
•Once at poetry camp I saw my friend Joana in a bikini.....
•I immediately started seeing my mother's nutritionist, Vinnie.
•Every ice pop I ate, every movie I watched, every poem I wrote was tinged with a fearful loss.
•Cassie was a very fat girl we knew who we had nicknamed fat Cassie because she also wasn't that nice.
•I've never kept a diary, [because] if a girl writes in her diary and no one's there to ready it did she really write at all?

Confirming that & when he'll be auditioning for the ‘Star-Lord’ role, and that he's read the script, make the jump and check out what The Hobbit actor Lee Pace says about Guardians of the Galaxy
Actor Lee Pace is among the names reportedly on Marvel Studios’ short-list of actors that're testing for Guardians of the Galaxy's lead role, Peter Quill AKA Star-Lord. And MTV News recently caught up with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey actor, and he not only confirmed that he's auditioning, but also that he's read the script. Watch the video chat below! And there's a transcription lower.
“I go in on Monday to meet them all and audition for it, so wish me luck,” the actor said. “I'm very excited about it. The script is great. The character is a lot of fun. I have been [reading up on Star-Lord]. You want to know what you're doing. The character is a lot of fun. I hope it works out.
“We'll see. We'll see,” Lee Pace said about his chances of nabbing the Star-Lord role and possible appearance in The Avengers sequel. “I've got to audition. I've got to go get it. I actually love auditioning, so I'm happy to go meet them all and do it.”
In an amazing episode of ITV2's Celebrity Juice last night, Keith Lemon did 'that thing with the mask and stuff to Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, making her appear to say all kinds of fun stuff from Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, and pervy sex love. It was HILARIOUS
It starts at 2:37 - but there's a frick load of joy before that.
Oh and it's my first post, yay!
Back in 2008, YMCMB rapper, Tyga, was a guest on a corny MTV game show that was fortunately never picked up. According to TMZ, the show titled, Bustas had wannabe-rappers compete against each other in games such as, Guess the Rapper By His Grill, and Is This a Real Rolex? to see who can embody rap stereotypes the best.
Today, the unaired footage has made it’s way online, and now Tyga’s whole career is being called into question. Not only has Tyga been lying about being from the hard streets of Compton, CA, but he admits on camera that he had a privileged upbringing in the Valley suburbs.
In the video, the contestants are asked to freestyle and incorporate buzz words like amoeba into their raps. Tyga (who mispronounces the word) gets boo’d off the stage.

lol, his freestyling
Justin Bieber has confirmed plans to release an acoustic album.
The singer was first rumored to be working on the project earlier this year after his manager Scooter Braun called upon the star to pursue the project.
"Been writing a lot… new stuff…," Bieber tweeted yesterday (December 6). "The acoustic album, new arrangements, is happening… #withdankanter."
Bieber is expected to record stripped-down versions of his Believe album songs, following a number of well-received guitar-led performances earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Bieber's manager Braun hit out at the Grammys earlier this week, after the star failed to be nominated for a single award.
