What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on 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:

No one probably saw this coming…George Clooney and Bill Murray think Miley Cyrus is “fantastic”! Clooney just wrapped a 2015 Christmas TV special with Cyrus and Bill Murray. He stated over cocktails the other night in New York BOTH he and Murray were saying how impressed they were with Miley as an entertainer, how fun she was and how amazing her work ethic was…”in general, just a real pro!” YEA! for Miley, YOU GO GIRL! Can’t wait to see that special!

Jay Z and Beyonce have purchased a home in New Orleans. No, it was not Brad and Angelina’s house currently on the market for $6.5 million as some suspected. My sources tell me they purchased a 2.6 million dollar home that used to be the Westminster Presbyterian Church in the city’s beautiful and historic Garden District. The 13,000 square foot house has three floors, a fabulous master suite and the city’s largest rooftop deck! No word on whether Solange will move into the new house. She has lived in New Orleans with her 10-year old son Julez since 2013 and was just married there last year to music director Alan Ferguson with her closet family and friends.

As Sam Smith prepares for surgery on his vocal chords he is now reportedly suffering from stress as well. He stated over the weekend that he has developed a rash on his body and does not know why, stating it could possibly be a “delayed reaction from the Grammy’s”. He did state he is nervous about next week’s surgery but most concerned about the fact that he cannot talk for three weeks following the operation. The entire recovery period is eight weeks, but he states once recovered he will be able to sing “like never before, so it’s worth it!” Wishing him a very speedy recovery!!

Rumors about a ‘Sex and the City 3’ movie spread across social media after Sarah Jessica Parker’s most recent Instagram of her looking very Carrie Bradshaw in a skin-tight white dress and carrying a Bloomingdale’s bag! Be still my heart! Let’s hope it could be a hint for ‘Sex and the City 3’, but it could also somehow be related to her new HBO series titled ‘Divorce’. Stay Tuned, I am on the case!

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on 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:

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are selling their French Quarter Mansion. The couple bought the home shortly after Hurricane Katrina and committed to help revitalize the city, which they did in an amazing way. No word yet on whether they plan to buy another property in the city. They purchased the 5 bedroom/3.2 bathroom home for 3.5 million and it is currently on the market for 6.5 million. My sources are telling me Brad put his architectural skills to work on the property and it is indeed fabulous! Don’t even think about acting like you are interested in buying the couples love nest with the intention of snapping some pics of their personal furnishings and more!! For all those who look at the property there is a strict ‘no interior photographs’ policy you must agree to before entering.  You can be assured when I found this out; I promptly cancelled my airline ticket!

The undisputed Queen of Selfies, Kim Kardashian West did not allow fans who waited in long lines in New York for an autographed copy of her new book about selfies to take selfies when they met her. The book, “Selfish”, contains close to a decade of selfies, all of Kim! Kim stated the selfie ban was put into place for the 5th Avenue book signing to help the lines flow swiftly and smoothly! The ban included those who camped out overnight to meet her!! You read that right…camped out overnight to meet Kim Kardashian West!

I’ve got a SECRET!!!! and it might just surprise you! OK, I’ll tell ya! Zac Efron uses a butt-double! I know! I know! I am sure everyone is disappointed. Who would have ever thought! Efron was spotted in Georgia filming ‘Dirty Grandpa’ during a scene with him riding a motorcycle nude, it shows him getting on and off the motorcycle and the butt-double stepping in for the scenes shot from the rear!

SHOCKER- Kylie Jenner admits that her perfectly plump pouty lips are not natural! Yesterday she admitted they are cosmetically enhanced with temporary fillers because she has always had insecurities about her lips! I say if it makes her feel better and more secure about herself- GO FOR IT!

-Madonna appears to still be upset over the way Drake reacted to her kiss at Coachella! While appearing on Live With Romeo Saturday Night Online, she was asked if Drake was a good kisser and she replied with a wink saying, “I kissed a girl, and I like it!” She went on to say when asked what advice she would give to her younger self, she replied, “Don’t kiss Drake” adding “no matter how many times he begs you!”

-If you are wondering what happened to former One Direction band member Zayn Malik on Twitter, he changed his handle from @ZayanMalik1D to @ZayanMalik. Nobody can hide from me, please tweet Zayan and let him know this!

-Bruce Jenner is being sued by the family of victim Kim Howe who was involved in the automobile crash with Brenner earlier this year. The woman’s adult stepchildren have a filed a wrongful death lawsuit against him, claiming he was “careless and negligent” and speeding at the time. Jenner crashed into her Lexus, and caused it to collide head on with a Hummer on the Pacific Coast Highway in California. Police officers, who obtained video of the crash, believe that Jenner simply was not looking but was driving below the speed limit, thus many believe it is unlikely he will be prosecuted.

-Lindsay Vonn and golf pro Tiger Woods have called it quits! Both posted notices on social media announcing the break-up claiming their “hectic lives” as the primary reason. Vonn went on further to say, “I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.” Woods, with less words and a whole lot less emotion, simply posted on his web site, “Lindsey and I have mutually decided to stop dating.”

-The MGM Grand in Las Vegas had already began talks about a Mayweather/Pacquiao rematch for the opening of their new 20,000 seat arena in May of 2016 (a concert featuring an unnamed headline act will open the arena, then their initial hope was the rematch). Following Saturdays fight those talks have quickly fizzled due to underwhelmed fans and logistical nightmares related to the Saturday event in which both the winner and loser took home over $100 million dollars!

Sam Smith has been told to give his pipes a rest! First Adele now Sam, what is in the water across the pond!? Smith was ordered by doctors to cut his Australian tour short because he is suffering from a “small hemorrhage” on his vocal chords! His doctors told him to fully rest or risk a “huge, long-term issue.” Currently, he is scheduled to appear at the ‘Rock in Rio’ festival in Las Vegas next month, as well as to start his full U.S. tour in July! REST SAM REST! We are ready to welcome you to the States!

Mariah Carey is insisting her new single ‘Infinity’ is not about her relationship with her estranged husband Nick Cannon. She states the song is “for all the women, or men, or whoever’s gone through any type of relationship.” She went on to say she is looking at it as the mantra of ‘Infinity’ which is loving yourself…loving yourself first to infinity (isn’t this what Mariah has always done!?) She says once you love yourself “then you can love anybody or anything else- your career, your kids, your life!” She said she wants everyone to sing along with her because the song has a “big chorus.” Additionally, she probably wants everyone to sing along because lately she keeps forgetting the words to songs she has sung for ten plus years!

Dear Mimi, call me crazy, but the song sounds very much like it was written about Nick Cannon!  Ironically, Nick gave Mariah and her new album a shout-out on his Instagram posting ‘Mariah: #1to Infinity’, with hashtags #TheQueen #NoHate #HardestWorkingWomanIKnow.

Kris Jenner is now saying she was “unable” to be involved in the Bruce Jenner sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer. She has flip-flopped so much on this topic; I personally think she might want to consider politics! On Friday, the Twitterverse lit up after Sawyer said that Kris Jenner stated she had “no comment” when asked about Jenner’s transitioning to a woman.  Friday night Jenner sent out a tweet saying she was never contacted to a part of the special (flip-flop!). ABC claims the network contacted all of Bruce’s ex’s and children and Kris Jenner never responded back to them. Now she is saying they did contact her, but they said they wanted to fact check some items and she did not respond because she had not previewed the special, so she could not respond to what was fact or not (flip flop!). Stay tuned, later today she will probably have yet another explanation! Personally I’m puzzled; I have never known a Kardashian to turn down the opportunity to be on TV!

Jennifer Lopez has a new fitness lifestyle brand called “Bodylab”. The brand aims to empower and educate women about wellness through supplements and tracking tools as part of a new #BeTheGirl campaign. The 10-week program kicks off in June and Lopez and various fitness experts will share recipes, personal fitness plans (JLo DO TELL! how do you look so fabulously fit ALL the time!), and nutritional advice.

CORT 2015 Design Trends: Sass is in the Air!

Posted in: Uncategorized

Hey, sassies!! Our BFFs at CORT Event Furnishings were nice enough to tell us the top event furnishings design trends for 2015! Y’all know CORT as our great nation’s top dog in furniture, lighting and accessories – I know them for all of the sassy events they create!!

Mid-century inspired furnishings are HUGE this year! Of course, we’re not just getting into a time machine and pulling furniture directly from the 1950s and 1960s – No, sir! These are classic pieces with iconic silhouettes and a simple, modern aesthetic. What’s old is new again, sassies!! Bring this trend to life by selecting styles from CORT’s Draper collection.

You know what else is happening this year?! Hollywood regency! Once again sassies, we’re bringing vintage classic into 21st century modern with neoclassical pieces that have a vintage flair. If you want to add some flair to your event, combine simple furnishings with theatrical accessories and lavish colored fabrics and textiles. I’m thinking a classic couch in bright pink would be my ideal choice, sassies!! Or you could just call CORT and outfit your event with their Wilshire collection!

And sassies, since we all know it didn’t happen unless you posted it on Instagram, technology is huge at events! What’s the point in wearing a fierce outfit if you run out of battery power and can’t Snapchat it to your pals?? That is #thestruggle for sassies like us! LUCKILY, CORT has FLAWLESSLY incorporated technology into the arms of their furniture. Their new Naples and Roma Powered Seating Collections guarantees you can socialize and stay connected at the same time!

Thanks to CORT for sharing these trends. It sounds like we’ll be seeing some fab events on the horizon for 2015!! And sassies, don’t forget your sunglasses, because the sun never goes down on a great event!

What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on 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:

Angelina Jolie bought hubby Brad Pitt a $250,000 wedding gift. She purchased one of Ernest Hemmingway’s typewriters. It is a 1926 Underwood typewriter that he used to write, or should I say type, “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” which was published in 1940. Angelina bought the typewriter from LA Police Commission President Steve Sobroft, who has an amazing vintage typewriter collection.

Hublot watches, popular with celebs such as Jay-Z, gave Dallas Cowboy’s superstar Dez Bryant a $61,000 watch. Bryant received the watch in London, where the Cowboys played the Jacksonville Jaguars. Called the Big Bang Uncle King Gold, it is made with 18 karats of King gold (a gold mixed with platinum and copper) and encrusted with more than 300 diamonds! Additionally, Dez was made a Hublot spokesperson.

Troubled actor Andy Dick was arrested for stealing a guy’s $1,000 necklace. Andy was riding his bike on Hollywood Boulevard when he spotted the guy with a gold necklace. Andy asked him if he could see the necklace and since the guy says he recognized Andy, he took it off and handed it to him. Andy then proceeded to pedal away on his bicycle. Police went to his apartment in Hollywood, found the necklace, charged him with grand theft and threw Andy in the slammer!

Selena Gomez is moving and has sold her home in LA to Iggy Azalea for 3.45 million. The house has a formal living room, 7 full bathrooms, 2 car garage, pool, sports zone, a fabulous backyard pool pit and I am sure something damaged by Justin Bieber!

Speaking of moving, it is hard to tell if Selena Gomez has really moved on from Justin Bieber. Justin recently posted on Instagram what appears to be his love for Selena saying “Sometimes love isn’t a feeling, but a choice” one hour later Selena posted photos of her and hottie Shiloh Fernandez who stars with her in her new video, “The heart wants what it wants”.  The hot photos are of Selena and Shiloh while filming the video…wonder how the Biebs felt about that. At last word, he had not egged either Selena of Shiloh’s houses!

After denying it all summer Matt Damon has made it official, he will reprise his role as Jason Bourne in the successful Borne franchise. He said all he was waiting on was director Paul Greengrass to say yes and he finally did. Filming is slated for fall 2015, with a film release in 2016.

Taylor Swifts new video for her hit ‘Blank Space’ may be her best and biggest yet…certainly her most evil! The video starts out with Taylor happy with a hot stylish man. She then catches him texting, and she goes nuts destroying his phone, stabbing a picture of him and ripping up his clothes! Then she gives him a poison apple! It goes on and on, you’ve got to check it out!!

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:

Robin Thicke might very well be on the verge of finally getting over Paula Patton. On Saturday night he was seen entering a store in LA called Trashy Lingerie. He was not alone as 4 beautiful women accompanied him. Robin proceeded to buy them all Greek bras and skirts, dropping $2,800 on the items for his harem of hotties!

Jon and Kate Goselin reunited over the weekend in Pennsylvania. It was no love connection hook-up, just a garage sale! Kate was hosting a garage sale at her home, so when Jon found out about it, he dashed over and grabbed all the stuff off the tables that belonged to him. He gave Kate no money for any it! However Kate was not doing to make money. She was raising money for the Animal Rescue League. That Jon is a real piece of work!

My sources are telling me that Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin have called it quits! Not sure if they “consciously uncoupled” as Chris did with wife Gwyneth Paltrow or if they just flat out said, “we’re donezo!” They started dating back in August and tried to keep it secret, but then she somewhat publicly attended Chris’ concert in Las Vegas last month.

Neil Patrick Harris is having a fabulous year – a Tony, announced as the Oscar Host and now NBC has confirmed he will host 10 episodes of a variety show. Based on the British series “Saturday Night Takeaway,” the show will feature comedy sketches, hidden-camera pranks, and celebrity appearances

Halle Berry is the latest celebrity to jump in the lingerie business. We have reported that Britney Spears launched a new line and Heidi Klum has a line coming out early next year. I guess they have all heard much Robin Thicke is spending on ladies lingerie. Halle Berry’s new line entitled Scandale Paris launched yesterday, exclusively at Target stores across America and it is flying off the shelves.

Two by Two for AIDS and Arts is one of the must attend Dallas events for the social set. This year’s benefit, held at the home of Dallas art collector’s and social swirls Cindy and Howard Rachofsky, where the profits are split 50/50 with the Dallas Museum of Art and The American Foundation for AIDS research. They raised a record breaking 7 million dollars with one painting by Wade Guyton alone, selling for 2.7 million dollars.

Lena Dunham recently revealed what her biggest fear is, which sounds odd coming from a woman who has no problem at all barring her naked body. So what she could she be afraid of? The answer is driving! Lena said she has really bad anxiety behind the wheel and considers herself a road risk even after 6 months of driving lessons as she failed her drivers test! She said not everyone should be a mother and not everyone should drive! Lena commented that if anyone ever sees her driving, they should immediately stop her!

Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company is set to make $150 million profit this year, 3 times the revue in 2013, and she might sell it! Well, Gwyneth Paltrow will probably have a few choice words. She has slammed some of The Honest Company products on her Goop site, saying they are unsafe and just not good. The Honest Company is most known for non-toxic nappies featuring appealing prints and other natural products such as bath, body, and house cleaning supplies.  When Gwyneth’s not so kind review came out, Jessica said, “Gwyneth Paltrow probably lives a very similar lifestyle to me, but I didn’t grow up in a bunch of money so my tips and products are more grounded!” Ouch! I say Jessica wins alone on husbands – love that Cash Warren! And who could forget Jessica at the 2013 Golden Globes with that gorgeous tangerine Oscar de la Renta gown!

Michael Sam’s dream of being the first openly gay player to start a regular season NFL game ended yesterday. The rookie defensive end was cut from the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad. He was signed to the Cowboys after failing to make the St Louis Rams 53-man roster. He thanked the Jones family and the entire Dallas Cowboys organization for the opportunity and vowed to continue to fight for an opportunity to prove he can play every Sunday!

A little morning sickness is not going to keep the world’s most gorgeous duchess down! Kate Middleton stepped out looking amazing in a pastel blue gown by British designer Jenny Packham. The gown featured a mid-length underskirt to show off a little leg and the crepe-draped bodice skimmed beautifully across her tiny baby bump. She is so fabulous!

Here’s a fabulous Lindsay Lohan OOPS! Lindsay sent out a tweet to her 8.5 million followers supporting a particular candidate running for presidency in Brazil. What Lindsay did not know, or maybe she did, was that the candidate owns a helicopter company that was seized by federal police for carrying 4.5 tons of cocaine!

It looks like J.Lo is heading to Vegas! She is in final negotiations to perform at Planet Hollywood, current home to the Britney Spears show. Britney’s show would continue along with Jenny from the Block’s. My sources are telling me she will make $26 million for two years. Britney pulls in close to $30 million with her two-year contract. That’s big money for both, but no one touches Celine who gets $33 million PER YEAR for her Vegas show at Caesars Palace.
