Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

Golden Globes Gossip
The Golden Globes is the first big awards ceremony of the year and it not only allows us to lust after the gorgeous gowns the A-list wear but also provides a  chance to catch up with who is talking to who and who is on the way out – and this years awards were no exception. Our very own Ricky Gervais once again hosted the awards but despite his attempts to shock, dissing Kim Kardashian and Jodie Foster amongst others, critics found him tame and unfunny this year. ‘If somebody told Ricky Gervais not to offend anyone on the Golden Globes telecast Sunday night, it worked. Now if only somebody also told him to be funny,’ wrote David Hinkley in the NY Daily News. Jessica Biel left people guessing about her engagement to Justin Timberlake as she arrived without her beau by her side and with no ring on her finger. Elton John got in a bitch fight with Madonna as both were up for best original song. When asked about his fellow nominees on the red carpet, Elton spat: ‘Madonna doesn’t have a f***ing chance of winning tonight.’ When asked if ‘those were fighting words?’ he replied: ‘No, those are accurate words.’ But he was left eating his words as his rival picked up the gong! Meanwhile Kelsey Grammer announced that he was not only to be a father again with fourth wife Kayte Walsh, but that they were expecting twins! And it wasn’t just on the night that there was drama. At a pre-Globes party Demi Moore had a close encounter with her estranged hubby Ashton Kutcher.  The couple did manage to avoid each other during the bash but Ashton was spotted chatting with step daughter Rumer, who had accompanied her mother to the event!

Russell Flies Back To The States for Katy Showdown
Russell Brand is back in California for the first time since he filed for divorce to discuss the details with his estranged wife Katy Perry. The Brit comedian and actor has gone to stay with close friends Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale during this difficult time. The couple, who are old friends of Russell’s, also live close by to where Katy, 27 and Russell, 36 had their LA pad and were said to be wary of the relationship from the beginning.  While Katy has admitted that Gwen is her idol, Gwen has snapped back saying she doesn’t have much in common with the current crop of pop singers. ‘I don’t see myself in those girls. I usually put pants on,’ she said. The Mail On Sunday reports a source saying: ‘Katy wants a reconciliation. She has told Russell she is willing to do anything to make the marriage work,’ however psychic to the stars Jusstine Kenzer says there will be no reconciliation. ‘Maybe they had an amazing sexual connection. You can be madly in love with someone but it doesn’t mean it’s happy ever after and it’s going to work out. They unfortunately aren’t aligned in any way to have that long-term compatibility. They’re both career-minded. They had their life together and it took both of them to the next level and healed people so I don’t see the marriage as a failure. They came together, they are at the same place and they’ve gone to the next level.’ Poor Katy.

Mariah Carey Nick CannonMariah Is My Hero
Nick Cannon has thanked his wife Mariah Carey for being his ‘hero’ during his recent treatment for kidney failure. The TV presenter told the audience at the 2012 BET Honor Awards: ‘When times are hard, you guys don’t see her at 3 o’clock in the morning, getting up in the middle of the night, fixing me soup when my kidneys ain’t acting right. Mariah Carey does that.’ Nick was hospitalised in Aspen at the beginning of January for what Mariah said in a tweet was ‘mild kidney failure’. He was released after five days of treatment. Returning to work to present at the BET awards, Nick said: ‘It is truly, truly a blessing to be here tonight, and I am humbled and in awe of everyone’s presence, but mostly my hero right there. What most people don’t get the opportunity to experience is the true woman; the virtuous person who is my angel.’ He was onstage to present his wife, 42, with the Entertainer Award and when she accepted the award, she returned the compliment. ‘To my incredible husband who [has been] out of the hospital two days – look at him all strong and healthy and big and too buff for the tux – it’s incredible,’ she beamed.

Guess Who – Secret Gossip
[BlindGossip] When couples break up, there is sometimes a temptation to hurt each other, by getting the upper hand in the divorce settlement or the custody battle, or by publicly racing back into the dating pool with a younger and better-looking partner. With this celebrity couple, though, there is too much respect for each other to pull any high-profile or nasty moves. Despite their breakup, they are still genuinely close friends, and they do a great job with co-parenting and being genuinely supportive of each other.
He’s been dating, but has been fairly quiet about it. And she has a boyfriend now. It’s not one of her costars. Not a PR set up. A real, steady boyfriend. They’ve been dating since the middle of last year. He’s good-looking and athletic and treats her well. You probably haven’t seen photos of the two of them together, however, as they are extremely clever and careful about how to avoid the paparazzi. She’s already introduced him to her friends but probably won’t bring him out in public for at least a few more weeks. Unlike her close friend, she’s just not interested in having her marriage, breakup, and new boyfriend splashed across the cover of the tabloids. For a Hollywood star, that’s rather classy.
