If you held out any hope that the feud between Denise Richards and her ex Charlie Sheen was close to ending, there’s some bad news to be had.
“The gloves are off,” Richards told TV Guide. “When I keep my mouth shut, (Charlie) continues to fuel (the feud) anyway, so I’m not gonna sit back anymore.”
A source close to Sheen thinks the fight might become more one-sided than Richards realizes, however. “Charlie is moving on. He’s married again, and he’s happy,” said the source. “He also has a great rep and managers who are giving him good advice. He’s in a good position to listen and take it now.”
Richards told TV Guide that another marriage might be in the cards for her, as it was for Sheen, who recently married Brooke Mueller.
“I love men," Richards said. “I’ve never ended it badly with someone except my husband.”
Is that Jessica or Carrie?
Jessica Simpson is hoping to have success with her new country album, but being mistaken for another blonde country star — Carrie Underwood — was never part of her PR plan.
Simpson was having lunch at Dos Caminos in New York’s SoHo neighborhood when a fellow diner told Simpson that “she was her No. 1 fan from back in the ‘Idol’ days,” reports OK! magazine.
An eyewitness told the mag that Simpson “didn’t correct her, and she started to laugh when the girl asked how she was doing since her devastating split from Chace (Crawford).”
Apparently the encounter ended with Simpson taking it all in stride, but she reportedly was “not pleased” about being mistaken for Underwood.
Sherri Shepherd hopes to ‘Rock’ on
With a looming actors strike, it might seem silly to worry about whether Sherri Shepherd will return to play Angie Jordan on “30 Rock,” but hey, we worry about such things. Shepherd, who is gearing up to host the Daytime Emmys June 20, said she definitely wants to reprise her saucy role.
“I am so hoping (to return to ‘30 Rock,’” she said. “When Tina (Fey) left here with Amy Poehler when they were on ‘The View,’ I said, ‘You’re bringing me back, you're bringing me back right right?’”
Shepherd is a good sport about whatever Fey and Poehler write into the script. Said Shepherd, “The very first time I was doing the show, they called me right before I got on the plane and they said, ‘By the way you have to rip your clothes off because you are role-playing.’ And I said, ‘What?’ That was my first time ripping my clothes off, wearing a corset and it seems like every episode after that it’s a sex thing.”
Is it awkward? Maybe, but Shepherd is laughing it off. Of the episode where Kenneth the page is sent to seduce her character, Shepherd said, “Oh my gosh, it's hysterical. Jack and I had so much fun. They rented out a mansion and so we both are walking around in lingerie all day. We just couldn’t stop laughing.”
Jamie Lee Curtis on turning 50
If you find it refreshing to hear a celebrity speak candidly about aging, then take a look at More magazine’s interview with Jamie Lee Curtis. In response to the realities of aging in Hollywood, Curtis told the magazine, “I have watched, my whole life, people age and become buffoons. When you crest in your 30s and 40s and then you don’t pull out of the public eye, you become a caricature. You have to have grace, dignity and gratitude, and walk away slowly, like you’re walking away from a bear.”
