Rob Kardashian doesn’t appreciate fat jokes, Johnathan Cheban attacked


Hard times

Ravaged by alcoholism, Deryck Whibley doesn’t look like a young man of 34. TMZ spotted the Sum 41 frontman taking a walk in L.A. held up by two women, and it was a sorry sight. Over the weekend Whibley wrote an emotional post on his website with pictures of him in intensive care. Avril Lavigne’s ex-husband was hospitalized for a collapsed liver and kidneys caused by years of hard drinking, he said.

Reality follies

Rob Kardashian’s weight is a touchy subject. The reality bro took to social media after being snapped at LAX heading to Paris for you-know-who’s wedding looking a bit hefty. “So I found out I was trending for being fat .” he tweeted. “Thank you all, it really made my day :)” Just lay off the croissants. Oops, sorry. Bad joke.

Johnathan Cheban maybe shouldn’t tell the world where he is at all times. Kim K’s pal was at Sushi Couture restaurant in NYC Sunday night and Instagrammed where he was. That’s when a man entered the place with a pocket knife hanging off his belt and began yelling at him, reports E! News. The unidentified man hung around until Cheban and his crew were about to leave, then lunged. A security guard was on site, and punched the dude. Oddly, no cops were called.

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.

    At 88, Hollywood legend Lee Grant looks back in ‘I Said Yes to Everything’

    Actress Lee Grant came that close to washing Shampoo out of her hair when co-star Warren Beatty told her how to play the scene when she learns he has seduced her character’s daughter. The matter got resolved after she spoke to the actual director, Hal Ashby, and then to Beatty again. Not only did she win an Oscar for the role, but she and Beatty became great friends, even sharing a few passionate kisses after filming ended.
