Jesse James Opens Up About New Fiancée, Kat von D

Jesse James’s memoirs, “American Outlaw” was released on Tuesday. The new edition has a hard cover version and includes personal photos that weren’t shown before, plus a new chapter.

In full promotional tour around the media world, Jesse James, 42, offers new information about his marriage with Sandra Bullock and his new fiancée, Kat von D. If you know the story, she is the one James was caught cheating with. James told Nightline – in an interview on Wednesday – that his infidelity was his way of sabotaging his calm married life.

“I think I wanted to get caught.” he said, adding that family life was a lesson for him:
“I think, you know, a marriage ending, all this crazy stuff…that was like a lesson to work on myself and fix what’s wrong with me, so I don’t transfer it and keep it going, like my parents did.”

When asked about Louis, the son he and Sandra were planning on adopting together, he admitted he isn’t allowed to see him. Sandra has completed the adoption process after Jesse James left home and is now a single parent.
“I could only cry so much about him until I have to, like, suck it up and keep a stiff upper lip, and realize, hey, I have three kids that I do have” he said about the baby boy.

Although sad about losing Louis, the reality TV star lightens up when talking about his relationship with the ex-mistress and actual lover, Kat von D:
“We have something special that I’ve never felt with anyone I’ve ever been with,” he said. “She loves me like no woman ever has, 100 percent. Man, she has my back. We fell in love at the worst possible time. I’m being chased around (by paparazzi) like a dog and here comes this angel. Not only does she love me, but she loves me so much that she was willing to subject herself to everything that I was going through and (endure) all the ridicule that she got for being with me. She fell in love with me when I was being called Satan.

If that’s not a testament to what kind of a person she is and where her intentions are, I think nothing is.”
The couple got engaged in January 2011 and this time Jesse is sure to have found his soulmate.

 

Cameron Diaz Doesn’t Believe In Marriage

Hollywood star Cameron Diaz tells Maxim Magazine that she doesn’t expect a big rock from any man, simply because she doesn’t believe in marriage. The 38-year-old confesses that, in her opinion, marriage is overrated.

“I think we have to make our own rules. I don’t think we should live our lives in relationships based on old traditions that don’t suit our world any longer.”

Despite her criticism regarding marriage, she still believes that love is not old fashioned. At least, not yet. Diaz’s romantic history is a long story. She’s basically dated all the handsome men, from Justin Timberlake, to Jared Leto, to current boyfriend Alex Rodriguez.

In the Maxim interview she explains why she is seeing things differently, not adding love and marriage in the same meting pot:

“I love men more than anything. I want all men to be happy and have rad women in their lives. But guys need women who challenge them and don’t let them get away with their s**t. Women, conversely, need to not be crazy bitches who blow up when their guys tell them something that scares them.”

So what do the readers say about her attitude? Here are some opinions posted on Yahoo News:

“She doesn’t believe in marriage because no man has asked and has kicked her to the curb to upgrade.”

“What a sad little woman that she feels she must denigrate marriage to justify her own insecurities. Little does she realize that marriage brings a wonderful security and liberating freedom to life that you can’t find anywhere else. There may be no place for a real marriage in Hollywood, but then again, the real world doesn’t revolve around what celebrities think.”

Apparently, they were not pleasantly surprised with her opinions, but we are in America, which is a free country, giving us all a chance to speak out mind.

Cameron Diaz has nothing to worry about. She is still in the top 10 Most Beautiful Women in the world, according to Maxim’s 2011 hot list. After Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Olivia Munn and last year’s No. 1 Katy Perry, Cameron sparkles on the 4th position. The Top 10 also includes Mila Kunis, Bar Refaeli, Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, Cobie Smulders and Jennifer Lawrence.

As far as we can see, he is considered hotter than some girls that have a bit over half her age. Now this is what “woman on top” means!

Mariah Carey Reveals Twin Names

The Carey-Cannon couple, who has been blessed with a pair of twins, a boy and a girl, didn’t give any clues on what the babies names would be, until now. On Mariah’s official blog, she gave the names of both babies and explained why every name was chosen.

The little boy’s name is Moroccan Scott Canon. Moroccan may seem unusual, but the parents have great recollections of it. The top tier of Carey’s NYC apartment is called the Moroccan Room, because of its Moroccan-inspired decor. It’s also where Cannon, proposed to Carey, on May 1st 2008. The name Scott is Cannon’s middle name.

The little girl doesn’t have a middle name. She is simply Monroe Cannon. Monroe is inspired from the famous movie icon Marilyn Monroe, which was an inspiration to Mariah all her life. In fact, she  purchased the Marilyn Monroe’s white piano from Christie’s auction house and it is in Mariah’s will that the piano will one day go to the Smithsonian.

Cindi Berger, Mariah’s representative tells CNN: “It has been a long, emotional journey for this family, and I couldn’t be happier for all of them.”

At the end of last week morning Mariah gave birth, through a cesarean section to twins – a baby boy and a baby girl. Both babies were born healthy.  Monroe was born first, weighing 5 lbs. 3 oz., and was 18 inches long; her brother, Moroccan Scott, was next, at 5 lbs. 6 oz., and was 19 inches.

Berger described the day of the birth as very calm and happy for the couple:
““Nick was very nervous and Mariah was completely calm. Mariah thought it was another soft labor and Nick was driving her to the hospital and she was very calm and the music was blasting. When they walked into the hospital, Nick was going the wrong way and the nurse redirected them to go the maternity ward, and I said to her, ‘that’s right out of I Love Lucy,’ and she laughed.”

Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon have a ritual of renewing their wedding vows each year and this time, it happened in the hospital. Civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton conducted a brief ceremony at the hospital, only one day after the birth and gave his blessings to the babies.

What do you think about the twins names?

Stalker Caught in Paris Hilton’s Home

This Tuesday around 6:30 AM, security cameras on the Hilton property caught a man sneaking inside with two knives in his hands. The whole security entered into alert and the police was called. Paris Hilton told police tha Lee Parada was banging on windows but never actually entered the home.

The man, Nathan Lee Parada, 31, is now in police custody and being held on 50,000 dollars bail. Parada’s Los Angeles Police Department booking sheet reportedly says he is 5’10” and weighs 178 pounds. If found guilty, he will spend up to 3 years in jail.

Just a few minutes after the arrival of the police forces, paris tewwts a photo of the officers in front of her house and a text saying: “So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes. Cops are here arresting him.”

Later on, Paris and sister Nicky declared:

“It was very frightening, but they are both behind bars, now they are both convicted. When people do something, their actions have consequences, so hopefully, this will make other stockers think twice when they want to do something with me, because I’m gonna make sure they get in trouble.” Paris said.

When asked if she had any bodyguards with her she answered:

“Yes, we did have bodyguards with us then as well. The guy just came up from nowhere, it was very frightening. Thank God he didn’t have a weapon!”

Nicky Hilton was just as scared as her sister:
“There are just some scary, scary people out there. No one should touch anyone and…it’s scary. I definitely have security at home and …it’s scary.”

The property of the Hiltons has 25 cameras working non stop so, as they said, they are feeling “pretty safe”.

Paris remembers that it was not the first incident of the kind. She claims to have had a lot of stalker incidents, which she handled. But after a particular incident, she was forced to up her security:

‘But the scariest one was when a guy turned up at my dad’s office and said he was my fiancé . He forced his way inside and the cops discovered he had a knife on him. That was freaky. ‘Now I have a lot of security all the time so I feel safe. I guess that’s one of the things you have to learn to live with, but it’s still scary.”

Afghanistan, Worst Country for Mom & Baby

A non profit organization raking reveals why Afghanistan is the worst place to live in wif you are a mother.

Save the Children released the 2011 ranking regarding the life conditions of mothers, mothers to be, infants and preschoolers in 164 countries.

The variables taken into consideration were the level of information regarding contraception and the usage of modern contraception, the mortality rate at birth for mothers, the life expectancy of women, the rate of mortality in young children under the age of 5, the medical personnel involved in child birth process an other similar items.

After studying the data, statistics showed that the countries from Africa had the lowest rankings and Afghanistan was ranked last. And here is why: a typical Afghan woman is expected to live approximately 45 years.

One in every 11 women dies at birth and this is mainly because only 14% of them are assisted by trained medical personnel and apparel. After birth, the chances of survival for the little one are 20%. One of 5 children under the age of 5 dies.

In regard to the access to information about modern contraception and its usage, only 16% of the women living in Afghanistan use contraceptives. Plus, education in children is affected by child gender disparity. Along with Afghanistan, the bottom of the list is occupied by Central African Republic, Sudan, Mali, Eritrea, DR Congo, Chad, Yemen, Guinea – Bissau and Niger.

On the other hand, the countries best rated were Norway ( ranked # 1), Australia ( ranked # 2) and Iceland ( ranked # 3). 

These countries have an almost double life expectancy than those in Afghanistan. Only one in 175 women is prone to death at birth or of pregnancy related complications. Almost 100% of the births happen in medical facilities and are assisted by doctors.

They are well informed and the majority uses modern contraception. Plus, Norway has the highest ratio of female-to-male earned income and a maternity leave of almost one year.

The countries that were not listed in the Index had insufficient or unavailable data, or a population number under 250,000.

So what is there to be done? The non profit organization proposes:
“Governments and international agencies need to increase funding to improve levels of education for women and girls, provide access to maternal and child healthcare and advance women’s economic opportunities” Index says.

Sony Sued For 1 Billion Dollars

On April 2nd , the Toronto law firm of McPhadden Samac Tuovi LLP, filed a lawsuit against Sony Canada, Sony USA and other Sony entities. The accusation was the breach of privacy and the sum of money requested was 1 billion Canadian dollars.

The aw firm initiated the procedures on behalf of Ontario resident, Natasha Maksimovic. The 21-year-old Playstation fanatic admits in a statement that she feels cheated and is outraged by the PSN actions taken after the hacker attack.

If you can’t trust a huge multi-national corporation like Sony to protect your private information, who can you trust?” asked an irritated Maksimovic in a statement. And added: “It appears to me that Sony focuses more on protecting its games than its PlayStation users.”

This is the second lawsuit ony has to face after the hacker incident.

Last week, Sony’s database was hacked. The Playstation Network and Sony Online Entertainment have been taken offline and a complex and detailed investigation started.

The electronics giant has immediately hired a team of experts to find out more on the breach and pick up the pieces. The team was formed by Cyber Security detectives from two firms: Guidance Software and Data Forte. Then, the Federal Bureau of Investigation representatives were added.

The original statement of the Japanese company was that 77 million users data was compromised. On Monday, they rectified the figures, adding 25 millions more. The information hacked included users names, addresses and other contact information. When asked for more details on the matter, the Cyber Security detectives wouldn’t give any.

However, FBI leaked some, mentioning the fact that some credit card data have been compromised as well. At this point users all over the world started to really worry.

Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal asked for a detailed timeline of the events after the hacker attack and requested the help of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in the matter, asking him to investigate if Sony’s handling of the breach makes it civilly or criminally liable.

Sony came out and say that the stolen credit card data was from an outdated 2007 database. But it appears that the information was not comforting enough.

At another level Sony hired law firm Baker & Mackenzie to deal with the legal matters of the problem.

What is your opinion on the breach? Do you think Maksimovic is right to ask 1 billion Canadian dollars?
