Keep buzz going, Part 22
Phil Robertson won't back down. Even though A&E suspended the Duck Dynasty dynast for antigay remarks, he'll still be on the show when next it's seen in January. (???) Ha ha, Cracker Barrel first banned Duck Dynasty stuff from its shelves, then cried, "What are we doing?" in the middle of the night and restocked them. And Phil? He won't back down. He won't "back off from my path." If A&E lets the show go (yeah, right), other cablers are droolin' for it. Heck, Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne of the State of Louisiana itself says the state will help the Robertsons! Says the show "has been an important representation of the state of Louisiana, inspiring prospective visitors and investors since its debut." Ka-Ching, mon cheer! What about Phil? He won't back down. We told you that. Ian Bayne, a talk-show host and GOP congressional candidate in Illinois, says Phil's the "Rosa Parks of our generation!" Meantime, Phil, says he, too, has fallen into "sexual sin." Ladies and nonladies, this is how they do in the world of reality TV. Funner than the show!
Kate Winslet names son
Crazy lady Kate Winslet, famed for taking off duds and marrying dudes, had a baby Dec. 7 with her newish hub, Ned Rocknroll. What did she name him? Please say you didn't . . . His last name's Winslet? Good call. We love rock-and-roll as music, not as moniker. Now about that first name. Bear. Excuse us? Bear. OK. She named her son Bear. Actually, go ahead and call him Bear Rocknroll.
Charlie Sheen loses it
It must be Christmas, because Charlie Sheen is screamin' at poor Denise Richards for making it "the worst xmas I've ever had." He says Denise, who's gone to the wall, and several hotels, repeatedly for him, won't let their girls, Sam and Lola, come to his place on Christmas to open gifties. A redoubtable texter, Sheen blasted her: "[Y]ou won't even spring the girls for 30 mins, from the 10 mil house I gave you, (100 yds away) to come down and open the gifts their dad bought them" and "I hope your stocking is bronze-age coal stuffed along with an assortment of 8x10's of yours so you can see how despicable and heartlessly ugly you and your fermented soul continue to be." Ugly? Denise?
This is the same Denise who just told authorities she's willing to resume legal custody of Bob and Max, Chas' twins with other ex Brooke Mueller, to keep them from foster care.
*Then* what happened?
CeeLo Green tells TMZ that Gnarls Barkley, his smash-hit pop org., might get back together. He's a good pal of DJ Danger Mouse, his co-Gnarls. When? Well, says TMZ, why not at next year's Coachella festival? Outkast is reunifying there, too. . . . Vin Diesel says on his Facebook Page that Fast and Furious 7 will come out in 2015. . . . On Saturday, Basketballerino Dwyane Wade asked Gabrielle Union to be his lawfully wedded, and she said well, OK. He gave her a diamond as big as Miami. Actually it was an 8.5 carat cushion-cut diamond ring made by Jason of Beverly Hills. Worth about a million. Do not drop that thing down the drain washing dishes, girl. . . . AYK, Selena Gomez announced last week she was canceling a 2014 tour of Asia and Australia. She sounds a little burnt: After "many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself." Nice Instagram pics, of her and baby sister Grace. We wish her rest and family time.
