Gina J’s Dirty Laundry June 20th: RIP James Gandolfini
We say goodbye to The Sopranos‘ James Gandolfini, while David Arquette falls off the wagon and Kanye and Kim get some new temporary digs… and a nanny! Get all the details in today’s Dirty Laundry…
James Gandolfini, 51, died yesterday from a heart attack while he was in Italy. He was on vacation with his son and also in Italy for work. His son who had just graduated from the 8th grade found him collapsed on the bathroom floor. He is survived by his wife, Deborah Lin, who had just given birth to a baby girl 9 months ago. James admits that he had been addicted to cocaine and booze, and substance abuse played a part in his 2002 divorce.
David Arquette’s divorce from Courtney Cox was recently final and now he has fallen off the wagon. He was spotted on Saturday night alone at a bar in Richmond, Virginia. Sources say he was slurring his words and buying drinks for everyone. He then took a bunch of the patrons to a strip club and here are some pictures…
Wyclef Jean is denying the story that he will be working with Amanda Bynes on her upcoming rap album. Wyclef’s people say he’s never even spoken to Amanda.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are temporarily moving in with Kris Jenner until their new home will be ready to be moved into. And they plan on hiring a live-in-nurse to help out for the first year. It’s the same nurse that helped Kourtney with her second child.
Looks like it’s a go again for the Dumb And Dumber sequel. In just one week, Warner Bros. dropped the project, and now Universal Pictures picked it up.
Real Housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes is marrying Gregg again this Saturday and every guest had to sign a release and confidentiality agreement! So what do guests have to agree to? No one can drink or do drugs at the wedding. And guests have to be in:
“…good health and have no medical, physical, or emotional condition that might interfere with my engaging in the Activity.”
The craziest demand is:
“not currently and during one (1) year from today do not intend to be a candidate for public office.”
By the way… Andy Cohen is doing a singing and sightings at the Mohegan Sun today!
Lindsay Lohan is in her second rehab location and still isn’t happy. “Lindsay wants to transfer again,” a source told RadarOnline. “She wants to be on the east coast because it’s easier for family to see her.”
The winner of The Voice, Danielle Bradbery, has been signed to a record deal. It’s the same record label that Taylor Swift belongs to, Nashville’s Big Machine Records.
Jennifer Love Hewitt is threatening to quit her show The Client List. Her fiance, Brian Hallisay, is on the show but she wants him to have a bigger part and wants the show to write her pregnancy into the story line… with, you guessed it… her fiance as the baby daddy. But there is a current male lead on the show and they want him to be the father.
Flavor Flav’s Fried Chicken & Ribs in Michigan has officially been evicted from its location. Staff was kicked out of the building today after Flav’s team had $20,000 in unpaid rent.
Paula Deen’s excuse for using the “N-word”– her company released a statement and it basically says that she is using the “I’m from the South” excuse to justify her use of the word and that when she grew up, dropping an N-bomb was no big deal because everyone was racist. Here’s part of the statement… “During a deposition where she swore to tell the truth, Ms. Deen recounted having used a racial epithet in the past, speaking largely about a time in American history which was quite different than today. [Paula] was born 60 years ago when America’s South had schools that were segregated, different bathrooms, different restaurants and Americans rode in different parts of the bus. This is not today.”
Miley Cyrus released the video for her new single and it’s a bit strange. Gold grill, she fake chops off fingers with what looks like pepto bismol coming out of them, she dances with big teddy bears, booty shots, twerking, smacking girls’ butts, making out with a large Barbie doll in a pool, and finishes it by grabbing a woman’s breast. AND she was leaving her doctor’s office late yesterday… she has laryngitis!!! And we know because she was trying to hide her face with images from the doctor of her throat. Here’s Miley’s video…
