The ex files: Dexter costars talk divorce


Give it a rest

Ariana Grande is taking a little time out to recover from a hemorrhaged vocal cord, she tweeted. The Boca Raton singer, 20, says the reason for her issues is that she screamed too much after hearing that her debut album, Yours Truly, reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Ariana’s next appearance is Tuesday on Queen Latifah’s new CBS talk show.

The ex files

A brave audience member attending the Dexter cast panel at The Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles on Thursday night deigned to ask Jennifer Carpenter about her divorce from serial killer costar Michael C. Hall. Looking uncomfortable, the actress got teary-eyed and said, “Just because the marriage ended doesn’t mean the love ended. There’s nothing but love and respect.” Her ex responded in a less emotional way: “The fact that Jennifer and I worked through whatever was going on with us personally and maintained a commitment to telling this story was never in question and was what we needed and wanted to do.”

Someone her own size

Demi Moore may be hooking up with someone around her own age for a change.

E! News reports that the actress is casually dating Hard Rock mogul Peter Morton, 66. Coincidence, because she used to go out with his son Harry, 31. “They are into one another,” a source told the outlet, adding that Peter appreciates Demi’s “spirituality.”

Stay clear

Finally, some relief for Ashley Tisdale.

A 21-year-old man pleaded no contest to stalking the 28-year-old High School Musical star and was sentenced to a year in jail and a year of outpatient counseling, according to the L.A. District Attorney’s Office.

Nicholas Fiore was also slapped with five years of formal probation and ordered to stay away from Tisdale for 10 years.

According to court records, Fiore showed up in June at Tisdale’s house pretending to be a delivery man and sent her dozens of tweets, including some with gun references.

Tisdale recently got engaged to Annie Automatic alt rocker Christopher French.

    Mag: Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods’ ex wife are friends

    No bad blood here. Though Elin Nordegren is unlikely to befriend one of her ex-husband Tiger Woods’ conquests (even though we’re sure that Perkins waitress was/is a great human being), Us Weekly is reporting Nordegren has no issue with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. In fact, the two are friends. Not besties by a stretch, but after spending time doing parental things, the two have found they get along. A source tells the mag: “You'd think it would be weird, but ... they talk all the time. Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman.”
