I had to check with several of my sources to authenticate this, but this fracas did indeed happen a couple of weeks ago. At a gay club in West Hollywood, this barely hanging on to A-list singer and sometime actress (let’s call her Madame) had booked the entire VIP lounge for a party with her friends.
This B list singer/part-time tweener actress threw a fit yesterday when she decided that the suite at her hotel was not large enough. She told concert promoters she wouldn't play unless they upgraded her to a three bedroom suite. She was staying alone. The promoters upgraded her.
Actress and singer Jenette McCurdy stars on the Nickelodeon TV show Sam & Cat. She just wrote a lengthy post about a "fake friend" and why she was dropping the friendship. From Jenettte McCurdy’s Twitter account and TwitLonger: I actually wrote something about the topic of fake friends a while back but it was never published! Here it is, my dear…Letting Go of Someone
In conjunction with a local radio station contest, this very popular singer invited some fans to attend sound check and do a meet and greet with her before one of her concerts. She sang a couple of songs for the group and then sat on the edge of the stage and held a Q&A. There were a couple of the usual questions about what inspired her music. Then it got ugly. One rude participant started firing questions at her about the way the singer and one of her exes broke up. "He says you cheated on him! How could you hurt him like that? He couldn’t eat or sleep because of you! You ruined his life!" Our singer kept her composure. She didn’t yell or burst into tears or walk off the stage. She waited for the fan to stop hurling insults and accusations and then responded very simply and quietly, "Oh, honey, I think his life was ruined before I ever met him. Next question, please?"
Actress on a youth-oriented series. Current employer: She is not important or valuable enough to deserve a substantial raise, and we are right to pay her only a fraction of what her costar makes. Liars! You are happily exploiting the fact that she is physically and emotionally exhausted after a very long season. You are also privately telling her that she deserves to be penalized for some unfavorable publicity in the past year that embarrassed your network. However, since that publicity did not affect the show’s ratings, your argument is pretty weak. Also, paying equal costars on a show vastly different amounts breeds resentment and affects performances and promotion. Oh, and don’t think you can lure her back into negotiating with you in person. She is holed up far away in a secret location. Smart move on her part. You’ll have to deal with her people.
This former A list tweener needs rehab now. The few acting roles she is getting and her slowed down music career are all being pushed out of the way for her coke habit. She was at a party a few night ago and snorted up all the coke she could find. At one point some woman there tried to get a photo of the former tweener doing lines and it turned into a huge ruckus. I love that word. She should go now before her world comes crashing down on her when she is busted. Someone will get a photo soon.
Of all the annals of showbiz stage moms, this one may be the worst (yes, it even outdoes anything Dina Lohan or the mom I don't like to name concocted). This mom of an almost A-list singer and TV star who has one of the most rabid tween fanbases of any singer actually encouraged her daughter to sleep with that skeevy producer to get the part she's been playing for a while.
