In his first extensive interview since losing the Presidential election to Barack Obama, Mitt Romney told Chris Matthews this morning that he only has himself to blame for not taking the White House.
“I lost my election because of my campaign,” Romney said on Fox News Sunday. “Not because of what anyone else did.”Mitt Romney on Fox News Sunday
Romney cited his failure to win over African-American and Hispanic voters, while also zeroing in on his “47 percent” comments as being detrimental to his bid.
Admitting that it “kills” him not to be President, Romney also had a fewMore >
Ryan Lanza is already grieving and no doubt floored by the deaths of his brother, Adam Lanza, their mother Nancy and the 26 other people Adam killed yesterday.
As if that weren’t enough to process, he was erroneously named as the man responsible for the Connecticut shooting by overzealous media outlets at first.
Many TV news outlets and websites were scrambling after reporting Ryan Lanza, 24, was the shooter, even though state and federal officials did not confirm this.
It is now believed that Adam Lanza, 20, had an ID of Ryan’s on him, leading to the initial confusion. But forMore >
On The Today Show this morning, Matt Lauer and Bill O’Reilly engaged in a fascinating debate.
It stemmed from the latter’s belief that Whitney Houston had a death wish, that nobody abuses drugs or alcohol in such a way “if they want to stay on the planet.”
Lauer countered this point by saying “addiction is a disease,” but O’Reilly shot back:
“It’s a mental disease. You have free will when it comes to addiction. You don’t have free will when it comes to lung cancer.”
The main topic of the discourse, though, centered on the media’s handling ofMore >
Weddings are supposed to be a financial burden normally but if you are a Hollywood superstar, then the rules change quite significantly in your favor.
The cost incurred behind the lavish wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries is somewhere around the $10 million mark. But surprisingly, the 30-year old celebutante didn’t had to pay a dime out of her pocket. That is because a number of sponsors volunteered to pay her wedding expenses, just so that they can get their brand names attached to the star-studded event.

Chris Brown has been under considerable fire this week, and really since he assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. People will not give the dude a break.
Given his frequent blowups – most recently a gay slur against some photographers he thought told the police about his illegally parked car – you can see why.
Chris did apologize, sort of, for that incident, but it’s clear he’s just as upset that he’s being criticized for it as he is at himself for uttering it to start with.
In a string of Tweets last night, he wrote: “This will make things a whole lot easier. If you don’tMore >
Melania Trump wants to make a couple of things clear:
- Her husband, potential presidential candidate Donald Trump, isn’t the only one who wants to see President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.
- Michelle Obama has such great style!
She won’t say if he’s decided to run yet, but that she “will support him no matter what he decides” and says he’s not alone in his “birther” suspicion.
“Well I think it’s not only my husband that wants to see the birth certificate. I think it’s a lot of people who voted for him and who didn’t vote for President Obama.”

Charlie Sheen was shot down this afternoon in his legal bid to gain custody of sons Bob and Max away from strung-out ex-wife Brooke Mueller.
A judge ordered their custody pact to remain as is.
Everything will stay the same, despite Brooke’s recent issues, so the custody agreement Charlie and Brooke recently agreed on won’t change.
Brooke Mueller is believed to have fallen off the wagon in a big way last week, turning up at a pawn shop and then going MIA for several days.
Because the media was thrown out of the courtroom, it’s unclear why the judge was not inclined to strip Brooke ofMore >
What’s become of former Bachelor Travis Stork and his love life? Post finale of the show’s 8th episode, The Bachelor: Paris — where the hunky and chiselled emergency physician from Nashville, Tennessee proposed to school teacher Sarah Stone who incidentally lived a few blocks away from his own home. However, the 6’5” mild mannered doctor ended up back on the drawing board of bachelorhood soon after the show’s season ender was aired.
From the first air date of The Bachelor episode 8, women from the all corners of the world have had a keen eagle eye on the progress of the show, coupled withMore >
Dr. Conrad Murray’s lawyers and the prosecutors in the upcoming Michael Jackson manslaughter trial want to know all sorts of things about potential jurors.
A 30-page long questionnaire with 117 questions asks everything from whether individuals read celebrity gossip blogs to whether they’re insomniacs.
Some of the many highlights of the exhaustive list include:
- What Internet sites or celebrity blogs if any, do you visit on a regular basis?
- Have you posted any blogs concerning Michael Jackson or Conrad Murray?
- Have you or anyone close to you ever worked in any aspect of the media?
[HMG Celebrity News] – When his ‘Torpedo of Truth’ nearly sank without trace on Saturday, many thought Charlie Sheen would admit defeat. Not the case. Last night in Cleveland he got half naked, wore womens clothes and led an R-rated rant against ex-wife Denise Richards.
Chuck and Denise were married in June of ’02 and divorced four years later, yet she’s remained one of his few supporters despite his multiple problems.
And last night her reward was to be the focus of an expletive-filled chant, performed by a room full of pliable simpletons who had not even met her.

Taylor Swift visited the Tonight Show on Tuesday night, and her reaction to one of Jay Leno’s jokes that BOMBED was one of the highlights for us.
A lot of people think Jay is a hilarious guy. Taylor is one of them, but fortunately for all things sane, not in the way Leno likely thinks he’s funny.
Case in point? Leno struck out with what he was hoping was a charming impression of fashion photographers. The silence? Not un-awkward.
It started when Swift talked about her recent work for Cover Girl, which she says is a lot deal of fun, and even involved a thing called a “leaping coach.”
Speaking out against claims by Brittany Maggard that she profited from beating Britany Truett to a pulp, Jenelle Evans says she did nothing of the sort.
Did not profit, that is. Jenelle delivered a beating, alright.
Monday, the Teen Mom 2 star was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for disorderly conduct after TMZ posted a video of her beating up Truett.
Now, the MTV reality star claims that Brittany Maggard, who instigated the fight with Truett, was the one who turned a profit with the shocking tape.
Evans charges that Maggard sold off the clip to the media for $45,000. “She told meMore >
Jessica Simpson is not exactly one to shy away from attention. This is a woman who Tweets her prayers, after all.
But the washed-up singer tells Us Weekly she’s in no rush to marry Eric Johnsn and might even elope with her former football-playing fiance.
“We’ve both been married before. We’re enjoying our commitment to each other. We want to take our time,” Jessica said, adding: “I will be part of designing my own wedding gown. We might elope if it gets to that point.”
Call us crazy, but we foresee tabloids competing over Jessica Simpson wedding photos long before we envision this coupleMore >
When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. When Chris Brown loses his mind and explodes on Good Morning America … welcome him back to talk about it?
ABC was quite forgiving after the singer’s tirade this week, keeping his Dancing With the Stars visit on the docket and even inviting him back to GMA.
The reason isn’t that they want it to go away, reports a source. They want to “milk this event for everything its worth” news standards be damned.
In the wake of his Good Morning America trip, during which Robin Roberts’ questions about Rihanna set him off, ABC wonders if there’s more potentialMore >
Following Chris Brown’s recent rampage in New York, there are fans that still take the side of this singer, typically using three defenses:
- Hasn’t everyone made a mistake?!?
- His incident with Rihanna is two years old.
- The media should stop bringing it up.
The first argument is ridiculous. Brown did not push Rihanna, nor did he strike her just once. Have you seen the photos following the attack? Brown pummeled his then-girlfriend. He gave her a fat lip and a black eye. You can stand atop your high horses all you’d like, but, no, not all “mistakes” are equal.
Would supporters continue toMore >
