The Buzz From Steve Kemble,
What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the Zazza Mornings Show, KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:
The world is mourning the loss of legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, who died last evening at the age of 82 after a long battle with cancer. He was first diagnosed in 2006. Oscar rose to fame designing for First Lady Jackie Kennedy and went on to design for some of the world’s biggest celebrities including most recently, Mrs. George Clooney, Amal Alamuddin. “Dallasite” and former First Lady Laura Bush issued a statement last night praising the designer. He designed the outfits for the second inauguration of her husband George W. Bush as well as designing their daughter Jenna’s wedding dress. She thanked him for always making women feel beautiful. Most recently Laura Bush hosted an exhibit by Oscar de la Renta at the Bush Presidential Library, called ‘Five Decades of Style’. RIP Oscar de la Renta.
Let’s call this “Presidents Are Just Like Us.” President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama went out for a date night dinner in New York at posh Manhattan restaurant Estela. When the waitress politely came over to the table, she told the Commander In Chief that his credit card had been denied. The President told the waitress he really was paying the bills! Turns out the card had not been used much, so the credit card company assumed it was fraud. Luckily the First Lady had her card, so she paid the bill!
The investors of Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas have come out and praised Britney Spears as they claim she singlehandedly helped fill its 2,520 rooms along with boosting the profits to nearly $100 million dollars, up about $20 million since she started! Wall Street gaming experts claim the pop princess has revitalized the property and helped turn the one-time dismal financial center into a real profit center. Britney’s first contract was due to end next year, but has already been extended two more years.
Dancing with the Stars hottie and Mirror Ball Champion Derek Hough has come forth telling stories of how he was bullied as a youth growing up in Utah. He opened up stating, “I was punched in the face, pretty aggressively in the stomach, tied up in trees and left in fields.” While giving words of encouragement to other youth who have been bullied, Derek said he learned at an early age that the people committing the vicious acts are doing things for their own personal reasons. It’s not necessarily because of the person you are and for that, he has chosen to forgive them.
In an interview yesterday, Kris Jenner would not say yes or no as to whether Bruce Jenner was “transitioning his gender.” She said their split has become very public recently, but they have not lived together for two years, so she does not know. Kris stated that people have said this about Bruce since 1976 and that was not her experience with him. Additionally, she was asked if it was true that Bruce is now dating one of her best friends and former assistant. The two were spotted at the Elton John concert in LA. Kris once again said did not know if this is true and claimed to be so busy with her own life she does not have time to think about Bruce’s personal life.
Monica Lewinsky joined Twitter yesterday! You can find her at @MonicaLewinsky. Yesterday, she spoke to the Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit and told the audience, ”I fell in love with my boss, in a 22 year old sorta way, and my boss was the President.” Monica is now 41 and claiming that she was the first case of “Patient Zero” cyber bullying. Her reputation was destroyed worldwide via the Internet. Monica stated her current goal is to help victims of cyber bullying and the shame game.
