Francia Raisa Talks about Kidney Surgery

Francia Raisa, Selena Gomez’s best friend, who actually decided to undergo surgery to donate a kidney to the famous singer talked about this whole experience. Francia talked about this subject during an interview with Savannah Guthrie.

She said that Selena and she were living together at the time when she realized that the famous singer was dealing with some serious health issues. “One day she came home and she was emotional. I hadn’t asked anything. I knew she hadn’t been feeling well,” Felicia said. “She couldn’t open a water bottle one day. She chucked it and she started crying. And I said, ‘What’s wrong?’ and that’s when she told me. And she goes, ‘I don’t know what to do. The list is seven to ten years long.’ It just vomited out of me: I was like, ‘Of course I’ll get tested.'”

Francia also said that the whole procedure took place in an emergency process, meaning that she had all the tests done during the course of one day, and she knew immediately that she was a compatible donor for Selena, so they could continue with the procedure. Francia said that she and Selena spent together the day before the surgery, but admitted that she was a bit scared because there is always the risk of not waking up.

Francia was fine immediately after the surgery, but we cannot say the same thing about Selena. The young singer said that her doctors informed her that she had to go back into surgery because her new kidney was turning around inside her. Her second surgery lasted no less than six hours. However, she managed to overcome the issue with the help of her doctors.

The two ladies also explained that one of the most difficult parts of the whole process has been the recovery part. The two were only able to walk an hour each day, while the rest of the time they had to remain in bed. They remained together during the recovery process, as well. Francia and Selena have been best friends since 2009.

Selma Blair Talks about James Toback Sexual Harassment

Without a doubt, Hollywood was shaken once again by a new sexual abuse scandal. This time, the film-maker targeted by the allegations is James Toback. And some very famous actresses have raised allegations against him. Among those actresses is Selma Blair, who actually made a shocking statement. The star claimed that Toback threatened to kill her.

Selma revealed during an interview with Vanity Fair that it all happened in 1999. Toback sexually harassed the star and then threatened that he would kill her if she would reveal what happened. Selma said that she just had to speak about what happened to her.

“When he called these women liars, and said he didn’t recall meeting them and that the behavior alleged could not be attributed to him, I just felt rage and an obligation to speak publicly now,” she said. Her statement comes in response to Toback’s claims that he never met or briefly discussed with the several women who accused him of sexual harassment.

Selma said that she had a meeting with Toback to talk about the movie Harvard Man. Selma said that Toback did not come to the meeting, but a hostess told her that he was expecting her in his hotel room. “Against my better judgement, I went upstairs,” the star said. She claimed that he asked her to take her clothes off and to have sex with him. She refused, but Toback asked her to let him please himself in front of her.

“He walked me back to the bed. He sat me down. He got on his knees. And he continued to press so hard against my leg. He was greasy and I had to look into those big brown eyes. I tried to look away, but he would hold my face. So I was forced to look into his eyes. And I felt disgust and shame, and like nobody would ever think of me as being clean again after being this close to the devil. His energy was so sinister,” she said.

Selma went on to say that he made a very serious threat against her. He told her about the story of a girl who went “against” him. He said that “if she ever tells anybody, no matter how much time she thinks went by, I have people who will pull up in a car, kidnap her and throw her in the Hudson river with cement blocks on her feet. You understand what I’m talking about, right?” Selma said Toback told her.

Toback was accused by no less than 200 women of sexual harassment. The scandal broke after allegations of sexual harassment also targeted Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. The whole scandal involving Toback emerged after the Los Angeles Times published a report including the testimony of 38 women who revealed that Toback sexually harassed them. The film-marker is now 72 years old. Toback denied all the allegations.

Jennifer Lawrence Sorry for Chris Pratt Cheating Rumors

The separation of Anna Faris and Chris Pratt has surely been one of the most unexpected celebrity breakups of this year. And of course, a series of rumors were linked to it. Even before the two officially announced the end of their marriage, some rumors claimed that Chris might have cheated on his wife with famous actress Jennifer Lawrence.

Now, Anna actually decided to talk about those rumors. Anna has been very open in talking about her marriage and her life following the separation. She claimed in her memoir, Unqualified, that the whole interest received by the rumors of Jennifer and Chris being involved made her feel insecure. Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt starred together in the movie Passengers.

“My publicist, out of the blue, pulled me aside and said, ‘Anna, listen, there are going to be paparazzi all over them,'” Anna revealed. “‘There are going to be shots of them laughing together on their way to set. There are going to be stories circulating, and you have to brace yourself for this,'” the star went on to add. She also said that she was never jealous on the women who were working with Chris, and this has never been a subject for fights between them.

“I’d always taken pride in our relationship, and the coverage, even though it was just false rumors, was making me feel insecure,” Anna said. Anna went on to reveal that Jennifer actually contacted her soon after the rumors started to emerge. Jennifer apologized to Anna for the rumors.

“Jennifer and I really are friendly, and she was apologetic even though she didn’t need to be, because she hadn’t done anything wrong,” Anna revealed. “She’s awesome, but of course it’s hurtful and also embarrassing when people are saying your husband is cheating on you, even if it’s patently untrue. You still feel, and look, like a fool.”

Well, Anna and Chris did end their marriage after all, but Jennifer had no part to play in that. Anna also opened up in her book about the way in which she and Chris started dating.

Kaya Jones Says Pussycat Dolls was a Prostitution Ring

Former Pussycat Dolls star Kaya Jones has made some unexpected and shocking allegations. She actually said that the music group functioned like a prostitution ring. The star claimed that the band members were forced to sleep with men during the time when she was part of the group.

Kaya made the claims during a Twitter post. The allegations were mostly targeting the managers and executives of the music band. She said that they were taking advantage of the band and she left because she could no longer deal with it. She joined the group in 2003 when she was just a teenager.

“My truth. I wasn’t in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring,” she said in her post. “Oh & we happened to sing & be famous. While everyone who owned us made the $,” the star went on to add. She explained that everyone knew they were going to be a hit. “How bad was it? People ask-bad enough that I walked away from my dreams, bandmates&a 13 million dollar record deal. We knew we were going to#1,” she said.

“I want the den mother from hell to confess why another 1 of her girl group girls committed suicide?Tell the public how you mentally broke us,” she also shared on Twitter. “To be apart of the team you must be a team player.Meaning sleep with whoever they say.If you dont they have nothing on you to leverage. Yes I said leverage. Meaning after they turn you out or get you hooked on drugs they use it against you.Correct.Victimizing the victim again,” she went on to write.

The star also revealed the reason why she did not file a complaint with authorities. She claimed that she was scared and said that all the girls were abused. “Why don’t we report it? Because we are all abused! I personally have been warned if I tell I will … you know end up dead or no more career.”

Well, despite her claims, it seems that not all Pussycat Dolls stars agree. The founder of the band, Robin Antin, told The Blast that the allegations were “disgusting, ridiculous lies.”

Actress Rose McGowan Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Rape

Famous actress Rose McGowan had a very serious allegation to share about Harvey Weinstein. The popular actress accused Weinstein of rape. Rose becomes this way one of the few women who have raised rape allegations against the Hollywood producer. Dozens of women have accused him of sexual harassment and abuse, but only few shared the very serious allegations of rape.

Rose revealed what had happened to her in relation to Weinstein in some Twitter posts. The star claimed that she actually complained to Amazon Studio chief Roy Price, but he ignored her. Things are not looking good for Roy Price, either, as he was placed on leave of absence after a woman brought sexual harassment allegations against him, as well.

“Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately. We are reviewing our options for the projects we have with The Weinstein Co,” Amazon stated. Isa Hackett claimed that Price made sexual related proposals to her in a taxi and at a corporate dinner. The events happened in 2015, she said. Isa is a producer of one of Amazon’s shows. She said she immediately complained to Amazon’s executives about what happened. The company started an investigation, bringing an outside investigator to check the validity of the claims.

Isa said that she was never informed on what the investigation found. However, she was never again put in the situation of working with Price. She said he never attended events involving her shows.

“I told the head of your studio that HW raped me,” Rose wrote in her post addressing Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon. “Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof.” So, the actress criticised Amazon for doing business with Weinstein, despite knowing about his behavior.

Of course, Weinstein has denied the sexual assaults, but the New York Police Department and the London Met Police have started investigations on the allegations. A lawyer for the Hollywood producer said that any sexual contacts Weinstein had were consensual.

Vin Diesel Talks about Fast & Furious Feud

It seems that famous actor Vin Diesel decided to talk about the feud that has been going on in relation to Fast & Furious. Apparently, the famous actor believes that there is no one to blame in this scandal, so we can surely say that Vin Diesel is not taking any sides.

Vin Diesel also shared a pic of himself and The Rock on Instagram as they were filming together a scene of the popular movies. The whole scandal emerged when Tyrese Gibson started criticizing Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, for delaying the filming for the Fast & Furious 9. Gibson shared a message on social media in which it asked The Rock to stop delaying the project. The movie was announced to be released in 2020.

Allegedly, it is all linked to the fact that a spin-off will be released in 2019, focusing on the fight between the Fast & Furious characters played by Johnson and Jason Statham. It seems that this frustrated Tyrese Gibson, who also stars in Fast & Furious. He accused Johnson of making the franchise about him and claimed that the famous actor was a clown.

Of course, The Rock was not happy at all with this comment. “My goal from day 1 was to come in and create an exciting/fun character for the fans, elevate the franchise and built it out. #HobbsShaw2019,” he tweeted in response to Gibson’s claims. And now it seems that Vin Diesel, who has starred in the Fast & Furious franchise from the beginning, also made some comments about what happened.

“I know there has been a lot of speculation as to why the Fast 9 release date was pushed… but it would be unfair to say it is anyone’s fault,” Vin Diesel shared on social media. “As we plot the course to expand the Fast & Furious universe, one must be mindful to take stock of the roads we took to get here. The pillars of authenticity, family and most importantly, our loyal fan’s perspective has been instrumental in procuring success,” he added.

The famous actor went on to say that the “franchise is in need of maintenance. My good friend and the godfather of Universal, Ron Meyer has granted me the time to do just that. We have some very exciting news to share soon… stay tuned.” It is yet to see how this scandal will finally end.

Russell Brand Talks about Addictions

Famous comedian Russell Brand decided to open up about a lot of things during a new interview, including his marriage to popular singer Katy Perry. The star talked about drugs and sex addiction.

So, Russell Brand opened up during an interview with US Weekly. Brand claimed that he first used heroin when he was 19 years old. Luckily, he managed to overcome the addiction, but Brand claimed that it still is not easy. “I can’t think about it too much because I start to miss it,” he said. “If you’re in pain, psychological pain, you feel like you have a knot in your tummy. If pain is a fist, heroin dives into it, opens it up and relaxes you. It feels so beautiful. It feels like a cuddle, like comfort, like being in your mother’s arms. It’s so sweet and perfect.”

The popular comedian has been sober for no less than 14 years, since the age of 27. Brand went on to say that his life included too much smoking, drinking and cocaine. “There were terrible, terrible moments of loneliness in a flat where all I had were drugs,” he said. “That was all I needed. I had a job at MTV. It went. I had a radio show. It went. Everything was going. My friends left me. Girlfriends left me. It was very scary,” the popular actor explained.

Russell Brand explained that he was saved by his then-manager and friend, Chip Sommers. He claimed that because of his addiction issues, he was easily getting into a lot of trouble with the police. This was due to shoplifting and public disturbances. “Chip Sommers said, ‘If you keep doing this, within six months, you’ll be in prison, a lunatic asylum or dead.’ In retrospect, he was right. I was six months away from a lot more trouble. I got out before I got too desperate.”

Brand also claimed that at the time when he separated from Katy Perry he was dealing with sex addiction. The two ended their marriage in 2011. Brand claimed that it was all because he did not deal with the source of his condition, which just manifested somehow differently.

Gabrielle Union Talks about Infertility Struggle

Gabrielle Union has decided to open up about her struggle with infertility. The star actually said that she suffered from eight or nine miscarriages. Gabrielle confessed this all happened during her marriage to NBA player Dwayne Wade.

The famous actress and her husband have tried for quite some time to have a child. The two married back in August 2014. Gabrielle talked about her infertility issues in her new book, We’re Going to Need More Wine. “I have had eight or nine miscarriages,” Gabrielle revealed in her book. “For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant – I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle,” she added.

“I have endured eight failed IVF cycles, with my body constantly bloated from these hormones,” the star also said. However, Gabrielle claimed that this struggle has not negatively impacted her marriage. In fact, according to the famous actress she and her husband “remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.”

If Gabrielle will manage to get pregnant, this will actually be her first child. She was previously married, but had no children from that relationship. On the other hand, Wade has two sons from his first marriage. He also has a son from a previous relationship.

In her book, Gabrielle also revealed that most of her life she believed that she didn’t want to have children. However, she then became a stepmother and started spending time with Wade’s children. This is how Gabrielle realized that she wanted to become a mom.

Gabrielle also opened up about her struggle to deal with all the questions and the comments she was getting. “For so many women, and not just women in the spotlight, people feel very entitled to know, ‘Do you want kids? A lot of people, especially people that have fertility issues, just say ‘no’ because that’s a lot easier than being honest about whatever is actually going on. People mean so well, but they have no idea the harm or frustration it can cause,” she explained.

Kris Jenner Refuses to Confirm or Deny Kylie Pregnancy Rumors

It seems that Kris Jenner didn’t want to talk about the latest rumors indicating that her youngest daughter, Kylie, was expecting her first child. Kris talked at the Bottega Veneta show during Milan Fashion Week and claimed that she was very surprised to discover the pregnancy rumors.

However, this is everything that she was willing to share. “It wouldn’t be the family if something didn’t happen every single day,” Kris said according to The Hollywood Reporter. She also said when being reached by Ryan Seacrest that her daughter will not confirm or deny the rumors. Meanwhile, it seems that Kylie continues to do her best to hide her belly.

The star was spotted in Malibu with some friends, but she was wearing at all times some oversized clothes which hid her figure. Kylie also celebrated with her best friend, Jordyn Woods, her birthday and gave Jordyn quite an impressive birthday present: a Mercedes.

Kylie is now dating Travis Scott, who is said to be the father of the baby. Some previous reports claimed that both Kylie and Travis have been telling their friends that they are going to soon welcome their first child together. Some reports claimed that the two stars are going to welcome a baby girl. Of course, none of these rumors have been confirmed.

But, for the whole case to get even more attention, Tyga has also claimed that the baby is his. The claim was made in a social media post that was later deleted by the star. Tyga and Kylie were a couple for more than two years.

Well, until it will become clearer what is the case and if Kylie will have a child, the star seemed to be very supportive with her current boyfriend, being seen at one of his recent performances. After celebrating the birthday of Jordyn, Kylie watched from one side of the stage her boyfriend performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. The rumors are saying that Kylie will be welcoming her child in February. Kylie is not the only member of the famous family linked to baby rumors. It has also been claimed that sister Kim and her husband Kanye will be welcoming a third child, this time via surrogate.

New Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Baby Rumors

Some new rumors have once again talked about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, saying that the two are really going to become parents in the near future. Allegedly, the two famous stars will welcome their third baby via surrogate. The new rumor is not shocking at all, as previous rumors have talked about this third pregnancy a lot and have claimed that Kim and Kanye will welcome another child soon.

Well, now a source talking to People magazine said that Kim and Kanye hired a surrogate to carry their child and the surrogate is now pregnant. Of course, the entire family is very happy with the news. “The entire family is over the moon. Kim had been looking for a surrogate for months until recently when she found the perfect candidate,” the source said according to the magazine.

The same insider claimed that Kim wanted to hire a surrogate because she was not able to carry the baby herself because of her past health issues. “Given her health scares in the past, Kim felt the need to hire a surrogacy agency that helped serve as the liaison in finding a healthy woman who would be a great surrogate option for her and Kanye. Both of them have been super involved in the process,” the insider explained.

The source also said that both Kim and Kanye are ready to do anything to make sure that their baby will be as healthy as possible and this is the reason why Kim is so much involved in the diet of the surrogate. “They want everything to be perfect and for the baby to be extremely healthy. They don’t want any complications and Kim is providing an ideal eating regimen and diet so everyone knows what the baby is consuming before it’s born,” the source said.

First rumors on Kim and Kanye’s intentions to become parents once again emerged a few months ago. Kim opened up about her health issues during a Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode and said that she was thinking about turning to the help of a surrogate. However, the star never confirmed if she really made that decision or not.
