Last week, ARETHA FRANKLIN hit up a Johnny Rockets in the Niagara Falls area after a gig. And she almost engaged in FISTICUFFS with one of the employees. Here's what happened:
Aretha ordered a meal TO GO . . . but apparently, she was too hungry to wait, and once she got her food, she sat down at one of the tables inside to eat it. A server SCOLDED Aretha for doing that, telling her she wasn't allowed to eat takeout inside. Aretha says the worker was, quote, "very rude, unprofessional and nasty." She stormed out without finishing her meal. The owner of that Johnny Rockets says he's sorry, and called the worker a, quote, "new and very young employee." Apparently, the employee won't be fired, but was REMINDED about the "takeout policies." Aretha is moving on. She says, quote, "Over the years I have always enjoyed a burger and cherry Coke. This experience will not stop my enjoyment of burgers and cherry Cokes, and talking to the classy and friendly people at Johnny Rockets."
Last year, CHUBBY CHECKER, the man behind "The Twist", sued the makers of a mobile app called "The Chubby Checker," which claimed to estimate the size of a man's JUNK based on his shoe size. He was asking for $500 MILLION in damages. Now, Chubby has settled out of court. The terms haven't been disclosed, but the app hasn't been available for purchase since the lawsuit was filed.
It's probably a safe bet that Chubby didn't get anywhere NEAR $500 million . . . because the app only sold 84 downloads in the two years it was available, at 99-cents a pop. So in other words, this was an $83.16 operation.
Rihanna got a bit of unwanted attention this weekend in the form of a homeless man who stalked and threatened the "Diamonds" singer. The 53-year-old man, identified as Kevin McGlynn, reportedly turned up at Rih Rih's multi-million dollar apartment twice on July 8 and again on July 11 to deliver threatening letters, the New York Daily Newsreports. Cops found his name when he dropped his benefits card with his name and address on it. McGlynn has been arrrested on charges of stalking and harassment. According to the criminal complaint, McGlynn repeatedly called Rihanna a "bi**h" and threatened to "bum rush" her apartment. He also posted several letters to her California residence.
Also, The Bachelorette finale is tonight and Andy is down to just Nick and Josh. WHO ON EARTH WILL SHE CHOOSE?? Honestly, I don't care. I won't be watching. I will, however, be watching Running Wild with Bear Grylls. WHY, YOU ASK? Because it's the episode with ZAC EFFRON and he'll be shirtless, alot. Enough said. The End.
Earlier this week we heard that ROBIN THICKE and PAULA PATTON'S house was on the market. That was a pretty strong hint that things weren't going to work out.
And now the word is that Robin has indeed admitted that the entire freakin' album he dedicated to Paula isn't going to get her back . . . even though it had a song on it CALLED "Get Her Back".
A source says Robin is done begging and has decided to move on, and an attorney is already working on a financial settlement. One thing Robin is firm on, though, is that he won't be the one to file for divorce.
It's here!! "The Fifty Shades of Grey" movie trailer came out yesterday and if you haven't seen it yet you're crazy. Personally, it fits exactly what I pictured in my tiny little perverted brain while reading the books. Meanwhile, the news always wants the answer to this question: Would you want your parents to see this movie? Her parents are Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. She said nope. The movie comes out on Valentine's Day.
A source says Robin Thicke is done begging his wife Paula Patton to forgive him, and has decided to move on. An attorney is already working on a financial settlement. One thing Robin is firm on, though, is that he won't be the one to file for divorce.
Charlize Theron was spotted wearing a ring on her engagement finger, which would suggest that Sean Penn proposed, and she said yes. But that might not be the case. E! Online says Charlize's new piece of jewelry is an 18-karat yellow gold Anita Ko Leaf Ring, which sells for $4,900. And that would be on the cheap side as celebrity engagement rings go.
Britney Spears left her dermatologist's office yesterday with some pamphlets including one for Zerona, which is a laser fat removal treatment. But there's no indication that she's having anything done. She sure doesn't look like she needs any fat removed. Check out the current picture of her leaving the office RIGHT HERE and see if you agree.
Three months after Big Sean ended their engagement, Naya Rivera has already married another guy. He's an actor you've never heard of named Ryan Dorsey. They got married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico this past Saturday. They'd been friends for years, but didn't start hooking up until after Naya and Sean broke up. Here's where it gets weird: Saturday was actually the day Naya and Sean were supposed to get married, but she may not have done it to spite him because it's also Ryan's birthday. But it gets weirdererer...she wore the dress that she was supposed to wear when she married Sean AND we heard she even used the same damn ring. Duuuuude. That's messed up. Check out some WEDDING PICTURES HERE!
In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, this isn't official yet, but everybody is reporting that Zoe Saldana is pregnant. If it's true, this will be the first child for Zoe and her husband Marco Perego. "Us Weekly" says she's at least three months along.
Jessica Biel is coming to "New Girl" on Fox and she'll guest star as the "hottest scientist in the world." She will play an obstacle in Zooey Deschanel's mission to get lucky at a edding. That's right. Jess and Nick aren't getting back together any time soon! But there is hope, according to boss Liz Meriweather. Meanwhile, Ellen DeGeneres broke some news by hitting up Twitter. She said, "So annoying when people brag on twitter & that's why I'm not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on "Scandal". Oops." An ABC rep confirms Portia Di Rossi will appear in "Scandal's" upcoming season - it premiers September 25th.
Adele's one-year-old son Angelo James Konecki just won five figures in damages after the paparazzi photographed some private moments. Her lawyer said she had made it clear since the boy's birth that she never wanted Angelo to be "public property." In addition to the five-figure sum, as part of the settlement, Corbis Images UK agreed to never sell the photos again. The money will be held in a trust for Angelo, who turns two in October.
It's down to the final two on "The Bachelor" and no, not on Andi's season of "The Bachelorette" - we know Andi will hopefully accept Nick or Josh's proposal on Monday night, but we're already looking ahead to the next Bachelor. No surprise that Chris the farmer is one choice, but we have to go back to Emily Maynard's season to find bachelor number two. Arie Luyendyk Jr. was the runner-up when Emily chose Jef Holm. Who's your pick? Arie Luyendyk, Jr. or Chris Soules? "They are looking for the anti-Juan Pablo," says one source close to production. "Definitely want a really nice guy this time around."
