Hollywood Scoop: @GeorgeLopez Splits From Wife 5 Years After She Donates Oragan To Save His Life!

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

What an ungrateful bastard. Funnyman George Lopez has announced that he and his wife of 17 years are divorcing. The sudden announcement was made yesterday. Apparently George and Ann are trying to remain mature about the situation:

“The decision is amicable and by mutual agreement,” they said in a joint statement released through his publicist. “They remain dedicated parents, and committed partners in business and their philanthropic organization, the Lopez Foundation.”

Don’t forget Ann was the one who saved George’s life was saved by Ann when she donated her kidney via a successful transplant surgery in 2005. George Lopez was suffering from a genetic kidney disorder.

While I don’t know these two personally, I’m gonna need for him to show a bit more loyalty. I mean my god she did save your life hombre. Or maybe it was her idea. *Kanye Shrug*

Kanye Talks “Runaway” Film

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Though Kanye West’s MTV VMA performance was a bit lackluster, his upcoming film in conjunction with his new album is anything but mundane. West discusses his new film to NY Mag and here’s what he had to say:

“I’m color-correcting this film I shot in Prague a couple weeks ago. I want to edit the film on a boat. Where are the good editing boats?” — is called Runaway, and is a 40-minute noir piece based on his new album. “It’s the story of a phoenix fallen to Earth, and I make her my girlfriend, and people discriminate against her and eventually she has to burn herself alive and go back to her world,” he told us. “I’ve been feeling the idea of the phoenix. It’s been in my heart for a while. It’s maybe parallel to my career. I threw a Molotov cocktail on my career last year, in a way, and I had to come back as a better person.” Is it weird that we wanted to hug him? Like, somebody, please find this man his missing fish tank, you know?”

Im looking forward to watching this ish.

Hollywood Scoop: @Idriselba Inks Deal To Star In The Next James Patterson Series Morgan Freeman Made Famous!

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

Look at who’s officially about to become an A list actor.

Idris Elba, who’s had a long career in acting, but became famous by his notorious role in HBO’s “The Wire”, has just signed a deal to star in the next installment of James Patterson films. Elba will revive the role of Dr. Alex Cross in Cross, a new installment of James Patterson’s bestselling murder mystery series.

Morgan Freedman made the franchise popular with 1997′s Kiss the Girls and 2001′s Along Came A Spider.

Idris has starred in such Hollywood feature films like RocknRolla, American Gangster, Obsessed and The Losers. And, he just wrapped the role of Heimdall in Marvel’s Thor, and next stars in the Screen Gems heist film Takers, which opens August 27.

I’ve always liked Idris. Especially since watching him in a Vintage “Law and Order” episode with Kerry Washington. Man I swear every actor has been on that damn show at some point.

Queen Latifah & Longtime Girlfriend Parties w/ @AliciaKeys & @TheRealSwizz

Friday, August 13th, 2010

Queen Latifah has finally come out the closet.

The intimate picture above, which has been on the blogs for a few days now, was taken as the longtime couple vacationed together on a yacht while celebrating the nuptials of Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz.

I wasn’t interested in posting the out and proud photo because around these parts we live for the scandal of it all. However since the horrible Prop 8 legal battle is looking more and more positive, we figured GU.com should celebrate.

Queen has been one big butch for years, though Hollywood did soften her up a bit. so she’s free and clear to love who ever she chooses in my book.

Techinically Dana has never lied about her sexuality. Well, there is an interview I could go dig up where rapper/turned actress once talked of marrying a man outside her race and having kids during an interview from Wendy Williams VH1 show Part 1 from WAAAAAAY back in the day. But I’ll overlook it in the spirit of equality.
