Will Bianca Kajlich reconcile with Landon Donovan?

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
HollywoodNews.com: It was sad to hear that ”Rules of Engagement” star Bianca Kajlich and her soccer hero husband, Landon Donovan, had gone separate ways last year — especially having heard the actress describe her mate in adoring terms on several occasions. So it put a smile on fans’ faces when he blew her a kiss on camera after his stunning, last-second goal that kept U.S. World Cup hopes alive.
On top of that, as USA Today reports, Donovan says he’s been on the phone with Bianca, that he’s carried her with him in spirit through these incredibly emotional days in South Africa, and that they’re not “officially” divorced.
Beautiful Bianca talked about her dual life as a network TV star and a futbol wife with humor and affection in ‘08, and made it clear she’s a booster. She noted, “People say that soccer is not a very popular sport here, but what most people don’t understand is that the league is only 13 years old. You think about how long football and baseball have been around and they’re a part of our history as Americans — but soccer, it’s brand new. This is a cool opportunity for people to jump on board and be a part of something that could be huge in 20 years.”
Or much sooner.
Bianca talks about being a soccer “WAG” in this 2007 story:
Rising Star Bianca Kajlich: Series Star Also Knows Life Among the Soccer WAGs
The British tabloids have been making rivals out of Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham and Bianca Kajlich – months before the most well-known soccer star in the world, David Beckham, is due to make his debut as the new $250 million player of the L.A. Galaxy.
Kajlich, you see, is wed to top American soccer star Landon Donovan, up ’til now the Galaxy’s top man.
That makes her tops among what U.K. soccer fans refer to as the WAGs – that is, Wives and Girlfriends of players — in the United States.
In England, “There is almost as much press and publicity about the WAGs as about the athletes themselves,” Kajlich notes.
The media – here and abroad – have talked a lot about the shift within the Galaxy thanks to the landmark Beckham deal. Referring to Donovan, who gets a reported $900,000 a season, one Los Angeles sports writer summed up, “the Designated Superstar of […]

Katy Perry goes topless on cover of Esquire magazine

The image has been tracked down by Earsucker and the results are stunning to say the least. While Perry looks amazing in anything, this cover is no exception. Showing off her slim long legs and her perfect figure, Perry is literally “too hot to handle.” Click here to see more pictures of Katy Perry.

Wolper family gets into the Michael Jackson pie

By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: We can add one more name to the never ending saga of Michael Jackson, and it’s a famous Hollywood moniker: Wolper.
It turns out that in his quest to monetize his purchase of all that Jackson memorabilia, Toronto online entrepreneur Howard Mann has enlisted Mark and Michael Wolper, the sons of famed television and movie producer David Wolper.
Even though no deal has been struck officially, Michael Wolper told me yesterday that he and his brother are exploring ways to help Mann use the rights he think he’s gained through the purchase of a warehouse of Jackson family possessions. Mann is certain that he now has various rights because he possesses documents, recordings, and videos.
Mann, however, may be in for some fight from Michael Jackson’s estate. It’s more than likely that Jackson’s executors will counter that they control his likeness and image.

Twilight film vampire and wolf pack actors: why so segregated?

By Kim Palacios
HollywoodNews.com: It’s been said that, on the set of every Twilight film since the appearance of the wolf pack, actors playing the wolves don’t hang out with those who play the vamps. From a production standpoint, this might make sense (since actors on set see those with whom they are playing in scenes), but has the segregation of the vamps and the wolf pack been taken too far?
The issue was highlighted on Wednesday night during Jimmy Kimmel’s hour-long “Total Eclipse of the Heart” television special, during which time more than a dozen “Eclipse” actors appeared to promote the films, but were presented with a tangible divide. The actors were presented in phases, beginning with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner; they were expanded to include a group of four Volturi and Cullen vamps, then more Cullen vamps a bit later, then finally (at the very end) three members of the wolf pack (who were not even given places to sit on stage during that set). Before the wolf pack was introduced—which did not happen until the last fifteen minutes of the show—Kimmel asked whether the wolves and the vamps hung out on set. Though Lautner weakly protested, the unanimous answer from the rest of the cast was “no.”
So, what gives? They may play different species on screen, but the actors themselves are human. Is there any good reason why Taylor Lautner is the only wolf actor who appears integrated with those who play vamps? One possibility is that Taylor and the original vamps formed an impenetrable clique in the first of the “Twilight” films; perhaps the integrated nature of some remaining scenes will create a new dynamic for “Breaking Dawn”.

‘Modern Family’s’ Jesse Tyler Fergeson on gay kiss controversy

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: You have not read much about the Cam and Mitchell kissing – or lack of kissing controversy on this site because I have been so pleased with how “Modern Family” has portrayed this gay couple during its first season that I had faith a locking of lips would occur down the road.
But some fans are not as patient and God bless ‘em! There is a Let Cam and Mitchell Kiss on Modern Family Facebook page with nearly 13,500 as of today.
In an interview with PopEater, Jesse Tyler Fergeson (Mitchell) talked about what he thinks of the Facebook movement: “I’m all for progressive movement within the show,” he said. “I appreciate the passion that some of the fans have. The fact that there is even a campaign on Facebook just shows how many people really love the show and the characters and want to see them happy. I think the writers are proceeding in a very wise way.”

Farrah Fawcett remembered one year later

By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: Everyone is going ga-ga over the anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death on Friday.
But today also marks the first year since the passing of Farrah Fawcett. Her death was a little overshadowed by Jackson’s last year.
Farrah was first and f0remost The Sex Symbol of the 1970s. But she went on to prove herself a dynamic actress who wasn’t afraid to take on challenges. As she got older, she allowed herself to be funny, goofy and mischievous. As good as she was in TV movies like “The Burning Bed” and “A Murder in Texas,” she was also hilarious in her short lived sitcom with Ryan O’Neal, “Good Sports.”

Fans ask Twilight stars unbelievably racy questions during “Total Eclipse of the Heart” prime time special

By Kim Palacios
HollywoodNews.com: “This isn’t 60 Minutes”, said Jimmy Kimmel at one point during last night’s “Twilight: Total Eclipse of the Heart” television special (all this during a particularly racy fan-driven Q&A). Though his normal Jimmy Kimmel Live is considered late night TV, his special was more prime time. You wouldn’t know it from the risqué set of questions fans were permitted to ask the “Eclipse” cast.
The first question set the tone. A young fan introducing herself as from Katherine from Pasadena began by crooning “Ummm…this question is for Taylor. Um, I was just wondering whether your abs are real or sprayed on, and if they’re real, could you please show the audience?” As it turned out fellow audience members were feeling just as frisky. The next two questions came from Jared from Pomona, who asked Dakota Fanning whether it was awkward working with Kristen after kissing her in “The Runaways”, and Leah from Santa Barbara, who asked Robert Pattinson what happened to the “gray Stoli shirt”, referring to the Stolichnaya Vodka shirt he was frequently admired wearing, and some related photos that helped secure his sex object status. Even after three in a row, the racy questions just continued on and on.
Andrea from Barstow went on to ask Kristen Stewart whether she preferred Rob with all the vampire makeup or whether she liked him “normal”. When Kristen didn’t answer to Andrea’s satisfaction, Andrea pushed with a follow-up question: “Which looks sexier?” she asked for the second time.
Taking the cake was the question posed by Amber from Dana Point, who asked Peter Facinelli about his wife, actress Jennie Garth! “I was just wondering, does Jennie ever want you to bring your work home and role play as a vampire?” Amber asked with more than a little mischief. Peter’s response? “Um, no. But I do play doctor.”
