LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
Gavin Dishes On Gay Fling: Mr. Gwen Stenfani, Gavin Rossdale, is coming clean about rumors of a past fling with cross-dressing British pop singer Marilyn. “I think at the outset there was a sort of fear—that was right at the beginning of Bush, and I didn’t want it to be part of it. It felt like a cheap shot, so I was like, ‘I’m not getting involved.’ I’ve never wanted to appear closed about it. It’s not something I’ve talked about really because it’s always been in the glare of a tabloid world,” Gavin told Details in the mag’s November issue of his youth fling with the gender-bending singer. “It’s just one of those things: Move on. When you’re 17, Jesus Christ. I don’t think there’s anything strange about any form of – you’re learning about life. It’s a part of growing up. That’s it. No more, no less.” Adding, “That was it. You have to know what you like, and I know what I like.” We’re glad he choose Gwen, because for some reason, " Hollywood Power couple Gavin & Marilyn” just doesn’t quite do it for us.
Staub’s Bling!: Former “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Danielle Staub is continuing her campaign to stay relevant following her exit from Bravo’s hit franchise. According to, TooFab.com, the reality star-turned-singer is now turning jewelry designer with a line of cross-inspired goodies. “I want the crosses to be an insignia of just being close whether it’s a religious thing, or a relationship thing. It’s a nod to my song [with singer Lori Michaels, “Real Close”],” she told the website. “I already have the design of the cross. The cross to me is not gothic, but very sweet, big, bold and beautiful.” No word if her crosses ward off crazed tabling-flipping co-stars! (Roll Call just shed a small reality TV tear thinking about Danielle no longer being a part of “The Real Housewives.”)
Ramona’s Vino: In more “Real Housewives” product news, “The Real Housewives of New York City’s” Ramona Singer – who is no stranger to a glass (or four) of Pinot Grigio – is reportedly getting her own wine. According to Luxist.com, the reality star’s wine will be called, Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio… (uber creative on that name Ramona!). The wine, will hit supermarkets (and gas station convenience stores, we presume) in January 2011, and will sell for around 15 bucks. We can only imagine the raised eyebrow that co-star Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is making right now!
Antoine Dodson’s Award Show Debut!: YouTube sensation Antoine Dodson (don’t tell Roll Call that you’ve never seen this!) made his award show debut last night at the BET Awards, where he performed “Bed Intruder Song” live. See the fun, HERE! And do we smell a Grammy in his future?
