Celebrity

Celebrity is the fame and public attention accorded by the mass media to individuals or groups or, occasionally, animals, but is usually applied to the persons or groups of people (celebrity couples, families, etc. ) themselves who receive such a status of fame and attention. Celebrity status is often associated with wealth (commonly referred to as fame and fortune'), while fame often provides opportunities to earn revenue.

    'Wolf of Wall Street' Backer Jho Low's House Sold By Dept. of Justice

    The man who was once tight with Leo DiCaprio and help financially back movies like "Wolf of Wall Street," "Dumb and Dumber To," and "Daddy's Home" is selling his home ... kind of. It's actually being sold by the U.S. Dept. of Justice to recoup some of the billions of dollars the guy allegedly stole. Jho Low, a Malaysian financier, is a fugitive from justice, charged with money laundering billions of dollars, among other things. He used to be friends with Leo and even took trips and partied with him. Unbeknownst to Leo, the guy was allegedly a hardcore crook, and when Leo found out he severed ties. Leo had to return an Oscar he got from Jho Low as a birthday gift -- a Best Actor Oscar Marlon Brando

    Ellen Barkin Succinctly Answers Question Why She Was Killed off “Animal Kingdom” TV Series After 4 Seasons

    I wrote the other day that Ellen Barkin was killed off her TNT series, “Animal Kingdom,” after four seasons. At the same time, she left her talent agency, CAA, and BFF Bryan Lourd, after 12 years. Some fans speculated that Ellen wanted out. Let me tell you, no actor really wants off a TV series. If they leave, it's usually because of a failed negotiation, i.e. money. But Barkin is loaded, so that wasn't the reason. It wasn't her decision, clearly, to have Smurf shoot herself in the head. So what was it? A fan with few Twitter followers wrote in and asked Barkin a simple question: WHY? She answered succinctly: “65 year old woman.” Ouch! Ellen Barkin, kids, is hot. She doesn't look like a “65 year

    'Wings' over Westborough: When Steven Tyler and Aerosmith rocked Westboro Speedway

    WESTBOROUGH — Long before they were the “Bad Boys of Boston” and long before they were booked for Aug. 21, 24, 26 and 29 at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Aerosmith was just another up-and-coming rock 'n' roll band hoping to make the big time. Playing its share of ballrooms, high school auditoriums, skating rinks, town halls and YMCAs (including Nipmuc Regional High School and Lakeview Ballroom in Mendon, the Hopedale and the Upton town halls, and Webster Square Arena in Worcester), Aerosmith has always had strong ties to this area. Heck, Aerosmith's guitarist Joe Perry is originally from Hopedale, and the band's bassist, Tom Hamilton, married Doherty Memorial High School grad Terry Cohen

    Judge Rinder warns celebrities against using sexuality to 'help their career'

    Celebrity barrister Robert Rinder – who is perhaps best known for being the eponymous figure in ITV reality show Judge Rinder – has warned those in the limelight against using their sexuality to “help their career.” In an op-ed for the Evening Standard, the television personality said that he understands “that the pink pound can be a useful market to tap” nowadays. But also highlighted that there's a difference between “appealing to a gay audience” and “being all-out disingenuous.” “People who know they're straight, but refuse to label themselves in order to appeal to a broader audience, are at best indulging in financially motivated, crass flirtation and, at worst, being a cynical tease.” Rinder

    Stream It Or Skip It: 'The Righteous Gemstones' On HBO, Danny McBride's Vision Of A Greedy, Fighting Televangelist Family

    Danny McBride has made a career lately putting a satirical spotlight on worlds anyone can relate to: minor league baseball (Eastbound and Down) and public schools (Vice Principals). What would happen if he took on a bigger but just as popular topic? The Righteous Gemstones is the answer to that, an ensemble show about a family of corrupt televangelists. Read on for more… Opening Shot: In a massive pool in Guangzhou, China, a televangelist and his sons are officiating a massive baptism. Only the older brother keeps criticizing the younger brother's dipping method, the dad is trying to keep phone camera-wielding looky-loos at bay… then someone switches the wave generator on.

    Did "The Handmaid's Tale" Finale Really Kill Your Favorite Character?

    It would have been easy for “Mayday” to end with June dying alone in the forest, staring at the sky while dreaming about her happy life before Gilead. The one where she played with Hannah (Raven Riley Duporte in this flashback) and got to take in the sight of her husband Luke (O-T Fagbenle) looking cute in perfect glasses. That memory could easily serve as June's version of heaven as she slips away, cold and totally forsaken, in the Massachusetts woods.

    In Praise of Kris Jenner's Kaftans

    Sometimes, time both flies and stalls simultaneously, especially when it comes to the Kardashians. It's been a week now since Kylie Jenner turned 22 years old. How is that even possible? To mark the occasion, Jenner climbed aboard an award-winning 22-passenger yacht called "Fragility" with her closest friends and family for a journey along the coast of Capri and on to the South of France. On Instagram, you'd be hard pressed to find a photograph (or a video) of the trip that doesn't look like fun. Kylie wore a corseted rococo milkmaid dress at one point, and matched with her baby, Stormi Webster, in some mommy and me threads at another. Ostensibly, the youngest Jenner child was the focus of this
