Charles Manson and Afton Elaine Burton: Married?!
The Internet craned its collective neck in curiosity when we first learned that Charles Manson planned to wed Afton Elaine Burton.
Rumors about the details of the Manson wedding made the rounds online and we all cringed in horror at the thought of the 80-year-old serial killer planting a kiss on his 26-year-old bride.
But, of course, we wanted to see the pics anyway.
Now it seems that in a move that probably doesn't make the top 30,000 on the list of awful things he's done in his life, Manson has denied us the opportunity to gawk at his freakshow nuptials by getting hitched in a secret ceremony.
Burton has reportedly been spotted wearing a wedding band, and Manson's own son seemed to confirm that the wedding had already taken place, when asked recently if he planned to attend:
"I would have gone out of curiosity," Matthew Roberts told the Daily Mail. "But now it seems it's happened without me."
Roberts was conceived when Manson allegedly raped his mother during a 1967 orgy. Just one of the many reasons he's no fan of his dear old dad.
"There's got to be something wrong with her," Roberts said when asked about Burton. "Or maybe not. Maybe she'll come out of this filthy rich. The Manson name is a brand. She's after his money, and he does have a lot of money."
Roberts is convinced that the marriage is just a cash grab by Burton. Under federal law, Manson cannot access his savings or profit from his crimes. But there's nothing to stop Burton from doing so.
"I think it's lame and stupid," said Roberts. "If it's just some joke wedding and he's using it to shuffle his money around, or if she's just an opportunistic pariah trying to take advantage of him, then I want to know."
"I am warning her, if she has married my dad - who is the most hated man in America - she needs to realize she will become the most hated woman in America."
Apparently, Roberts has never heard of Kate Gosselin. We kid!
Anyway, as you gather with those family members you're not that crazy about this holiday season, just remember, it could be worse:
You could be Charles Manson's son forced to deal with a new stepmom who's 21 years your junior.Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got married out of nowhere in August 2014! Congratulations!
Kenya Moore: NeNe Leakes is a Ghetto, Classless BEAST!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is calling out NeNe Leakes for her (alleged) failure to deliver on a promise made to Detroit public school kids.
The duo promised to donate the money to a Detroit foundation for public schoolchildren after NeNe told Moore that if she donated $20,000, then she'd match it.
It is that charitable vow that Moore says Leakes has failed to live up to.
“I think that it is typical NeNe!” Moore told Hip Hollywood (dot) com.
“She is really, to me, showing the disgusting part of her personality."
"It doesn’t have anything to do with me or you. It’s not a pissing contest. Give the money to the kids in the city of Detroit for education,” Kenya Moore snapped.
“It has nothing to do with whether you like me or when you said you were going to donate it, or when I said it,” added the former Miss USA champion.
Moore says it's not personal ... well it sort of is, but only 'cause of NeNe.
Of NeNe Leakes, with whom she has frequently clashed, “She's the one who said, ‘I write the check, you write the check, we write it together.’ But I wrote the check first.”We just can't get enough of NeNe's wonderful wacky faces.
Kenya says she has already written the group a check for $20,000, and feels Leakes is dragging her feet because “clearly she has no intention” of giving.
Then Moore got personal, really laying into her rival hard core.
“I think it really shows the type of person she is,” she went on.
“You can take the girl out of the ghetto, but you can’t take the ghetto out of the girl. She is a ghetto, classless beast for cheating those kids out of $20,000. They need it. She has it.”
Leakes is the highest paid housewife, ever, for what it's worth.
For her part, NeNe says she'll donate “when I feel like it" and said of Moore's criticism: “Girl, bye. You’re not a part of this circle and never will be!”

British Man Spends $150,000 on Plastic Surgery to Look Like Kim Kardashian, Probably Regrets It
There's a lot to envy and admire about Kim Kardashian.
She's one of the the most famous women in the world; she's married to one of the biggest rappers alive; she can break the Internet with a photo of her naked butt, etc.
But one 23-year-old British man may have gone a step too far in his love for the Kween of Reality TV:
That's Jordan James Parke. He claims to have spent upwards of $150,000 to physically transform himself into Kim Kardashian.
You can see how well that turned out.
Parke has undergone Botox procedures, lip injections, laser hair removal and eyebrow tattoos in hopes of more closely resembling Kim.
In the process, of course, he may have pissed off Kim's family by putting Kylie Jenner's lips to shame.
Of course, he also joined such body-modding addicts as Human Barbie in briefly capturing the Internet's attention with his baffling willingness to transform himself into something straight out of American Horror Story.
Not a whole lot is known about Parke other than the fact that he's a professional makeup artist and he's really, really obsessed with female celebs. (Parke has an arm-length tattoo of Mariah Carey's autograph.)
He says his next step is to go under the knife to make his nose more closely resemble Kim's.
"I love everything about Kim," Parke said in a recent interview. "Her skin is perfect, her hair, everything about her."
"I laugh when people tell me I look plastic or fake. Do they think I'm going for the natural look? If I was, I'd ask for my money back."
No word yet on if James will shell out for a pair of butt implants in order to mimic Kim's most famous feature.The queen of plastic surgery. It's shocking how different Heidi Montag used to look and how badly this obsession turned out for her.
Phaedra Parks: Spending Christmas in PRISON With Apollo Nida?!
Just because Apollo Nida is serving an 8-year prison sentence, that doesn't mean he can't patch things up with his estranged wife, right?
Okay, in most cases, that would be exactly what it means, but somehow, Apollo may have convinced the famously strong-willed Phaedra to give him a second chance, despite his history of astonishingly douchey (and criminal) behavior.
In Apollo's fist prison interview, he begged Phaedra to bring his sons for a visit, and to give their marriage a second chance.
That latter request might be a long shot, but it certainly seems like Phaedra's open to brightening her ex's holiday with some family time:
Asked by a TMZ cameraman if she would be visiting Apollo in the big house over Phaedra replied, "I would love to!"
Not the most committed response, but she went on to say, "I speak to him all the time. I sent him a Christmas card and everything."
Somewhat surprising news, given how poorly these two got along during his final weeks of freedom.
Phaedra skipped Apollo's sentencing, and he reportedly stopped by her house to terrorize her one last time while on the way to turn himself in.
Like we said, not the kind of marriage that you expect to survive an 8-year prison sentence, but these two have always been full of surprises.
Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online to see Phaedra and Apollo in happier times.Apollo Nida is about to go asunder. As in to prison.
Selena Gomez: I Have SO Much Love For Justin Bieber (But We're Not Together)
Selena Gomez is still singing Justin Bieber's praises, despite all the two have been through over the years and that fact that he's morphed into a complete and utter ...
Do we even need to finish that sentence? Or are you already in mid-forehead slap?Justin Bieber loves him some Selena Gomez. Just see these pics from happier times and you'll know it.
Gomez confirmed in an interview Thursday that she is not currently dating anyone.
At the same time, she said there's no bad blood between herself and the Bieb.
Quite the opposite, in fact. Even if they're broken up (thank goodness) for now.
"I definitely have so much respect and love for him," Gomez told Norway's NRJ Radio when asked about her Bieber-inspired song, "The Heart Wants What It Wants."
"Going in the studio [for me] is very therapeutic, like any other artist."
Either she's taking the high road (rather than the usual cryptic Instagram passive aggressive quote road) or feels genuinely strongly about her ex-lover.
We honestly can't decide which scenario would be weirder at this point, but that's Selena Gomez for you. The heart wants what it wants, and the brain?
The brain may be messed up beyond repair. We hate to say it, but ...
Why she still has any positive feelings, let alone love and respect for Bieber, is a bit of a mystery given the fact that they've broken up in ugly fashion so often.
The two pop megastars seemed to be on the outs just last month, too.
Justin unfollowed her on Instagram after the song dropped, a move that didn't make much sense, as Gomez told Ryan Seacrest that Bieber thought the song was "beautiful."
Just last weekend, she was reportedly crying over him at Taylor Swift's party, leading us to believe that she was going back down this sad, familiar road again.
We got nothing. Nothing at all.Selena Gomez assumes the position in Justin Bieber's new Instagram video.
Tyga: History of Involvement With Underage Girls Revealed in Lawsuit
The relationship between Kylie Jenner and Tyga is controversial for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that he's 25, and she's only 17.
Both parties have denied that they're dating, but a selfie Kylie posted yesterday seems to confirm that she's more than just friends with Tyga.
Today, the details of a lawsuit in which Tyga was named as a defendant were made public for the first time, and they may serve as evidence that the rapper has a long history of involvement with much younger women.
The suit was filed by a dancer named Alison Brown, who appeared in the video for Tyga's single "Make It Nasty" in 2011.
Tyga offered Brown an undisclosed settlement yesterday, but the details of the case could still cause irreparable damage to his reputation:
The suit claims that Tyga and his record label "coerced young and impressionable underage women to pose nude."
According to court documents, Brown and several other women were "served unlimited amounts of alcohol" while they waited several hours for Tyga to arrive on set.
"After hours of being encouraged to drink (without verification of the victim's age)" Brown was allegedly brought in front of and "pressured to remove her clothes."
Two other women who appeared in the video have already sued Tyga and his production company for sexual harassment.
The ugliness surrounding the "Make It Nasty" video is apparently common knowledge in the rap community, and is just one of the many reasons that the Kardashians don't approve of Kylie and Tyga's relationship.
"The Kardashians know about this. Everyone does," a source tells Radar Online. "I think Tyga is a creep and trying to ride on Kylie's fame. He tricked her."Kylie Jenner squats and shows off her cleavage in this photo. NOTE: She is 16 years old.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: Spending Christmas Apart?!
Just moments ago, we learned that Kris and Bruce Jenner are officially divorced.
Now, it looks as though Kim Kardashian may be joining her mom at singles mixers in 2015.
Reports of a "rough patch" in Kim and Kanye West's marriage have been circulating for weeks, but it now seems that the problem may be far worse than anyone suspected.
Kim and Kanye spent Thanksgiving apart, and sources say they'll be celebrating Christmas in separate countries as well.
"Even though Christmas is a time for family, Kanye doesn't want to spend the holiday with Kim's family at Kris' house," an insider tells Radar Online.
"Kris has a huge party on Christmas Eve, and Kanye just isn't feeling it this year."
Apparently, no one informed Yeezy that being married and having a kid might occasionally require him to do something he's not "feeling."
"He wants to go to Paris with Kim and North," says the source. "This would allow him to spend time with them and also work."
"But Kim absolutely refuses to even consider spending the Christmas in Paris."
In fairness, Christmas with the Kardashians sounds like something from the CIA torture report, but that's what you married into, bro!
Were you not aware of what this would be like? Do you not have cable?! Your wife is on the E! network being terrible, like, 18 hours a day.Kim Kardashian sort of gets it on with Kanye West in this music video still. She's topless!
Kris and Bruce Jenner: Officially Divorced!
Well, it's officially over. After more than a year of separation and months of legal wrangling, Kris and Bruce Jenner are no longer married.
Kris filed for divorce back in September after 23 years of marriage.
The exact cause of the irreparable rift between the Jenners is unknown, but insiders have stated that Kris demanded a separation when she first found out about Bruce's sex change.
Bruce has denied that he intends to alter his gender identity, but multiple sources are now claiming that Bruce will transition into presenting as a woman in early 2015.
Given the amount of money and property involved, the split was said to be surprisingly amicable.
It's even been reported that Kris and Bruce used mediators instead of lawyers, and that Bruce will continue to make appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
The details of the division of property are unknown, but sources say child custody is not an issue as only one of the couple's two daughters is a minor, and Kylie Jenner will be 18 in a matter of months.
This is the third divorce for Bruce, and the second for Kris.
And just like that, the Jenners join the long list of celebrity couples who called it quits in 2014:Say it isn't so!!!! Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks, stunningly, called it quits in September 2014.
Check out the gallery below for some pics of Kris and Bruce in happier times:Awww, remember when? Bruce and Kris Jenner act all silly circa 2012 in this photo. They have since split up.
Nicki Minaj Nip Slip: Watch It Happen Live!
Nicki Minaj appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happened Live last night and her interview with Andy Cohen started with a moment that was shockingly revealing, even by Nicki Minaj standards:
Yes, that's a nipple on Wednesday night basic cable.
We were taken aback, even though 2014 has been quite the naked year for Nicki. Let's recap:
- In September "nude photos" of Nicki leaked online. The rapper says they were fake, but they certainly looked convincing. Or so we hear.
- In November Nicki's first nip slip ended up on Instagram.
- But most importantly, this is the year that Nicki redefined "jiggle" with the "Anaconda" music video. A clip that will be featured in all of the major booty museums of the 22nd Century.
In addition to baring part of a boob, Nicki also spoke while appearing on WWHL.
Most interestingly, she replied with a terse "no" when a fan called in to ask if she would ever sleep with Drake.
In fairness, it's a pretty personal question, but Nicki didn't seem offended, just adamant that she has no interest in getting it in with her platonic BFF.
Of course, that doesn't mean she can't give Drake a lap dance. We're eager to see what Nicki will do with the art of semi-nudity in 2015.So... what do you think, Drake? The singer gets an up close and VERY personal look at Nicki Minaj in this tease for the "Anaconda" music video.
James Franco Parties With Lady Gaga and Courtney Love in Wake of The Interview Debacle
As you've lively heard, the cyber-terrorists have emerged victorious and Sony has pulled The Interview from theaters, per the group's demands.
It's a sad day for freedom of expression advocates, fans of comedy, people named Seth Rogen...Hell, it's a bummer for just about everyone who's not James Franco.
Franco took to Instagram last night (usually a formula for trouble) to wish his fans a happy Hannukah and show off his latest party pics:
Yes, that's Franco and Lady Gaga getting close on the left. And there's James with Gaga, Courtney Love, and MoMA curator Klaus Biesenbach at what might be the pretentious holiday party in history.
Is this the end of Franco's obsession with Lana Del Rey? Has he moved on to Gaga? Or Courtney?!
Either way, it's pretty plain to see that dude's not too broken up about the fact that The Interview will never hit theaters. And that's a good thing, we suppose. It's not like anything can be done about it at this point.
Still, can you imagine toiling for months on a project, only to receive nothing in the way of awards or public adulation once it's finished?
That would be like...Holy crap, it would be like having a regular job!!! Clearly, James hasn't let the horror of his situation sink in, or he'd be crying on the floor.James Franco is a jack of all trades. Send him your birthday wishes now!
