Celebrity Big Brother: Is Lauren leading Ricci on?

16 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Celebrity Big Brother housemate Lauren Goodger was accused of leading Ricci Guarnaccio on in the house yesterday (September 1).

The duo have had a confusing relationship so far this series, while Ricci expressed concerns earlier this week that Lauren is "playing games".

Lauren woke up yesterday feeling the effects of the night before - when she got drunk and exposed her breast in the pool - and Edele Lynch advised her that Ricci had been trying to look after her.

However, Lauren's drunken behaviour was the talk of the house as James Jordan revealed: "She tried to jump into bed with me last night in her G-string and I was f**king straight out of the door."

Gary Busey wanted to know if James had "had a chance with Lauren", but James told Lauren about her wardrobe malfunction as George Gilbey said: "Don't worry, Lauren, you've got lovely tits."

Why 'Point Break' Just May Be 1991's Perfect Movie

18 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In a crazy turn of events, Keanu Reeves is 50 years old. To honor the actor's five-decades-old milestone, we're celebrating one of his best movies, "Point Break," and explain why it fits its year of release, 1991, so perfectly.

Prior to the early '90s classic, Reeves hadn't really ventured into action movies and was best known for playing a pretty boy, high school stoner in "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" (1989). "Point Break" would change all that. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow ("The Hurt Locker"), the movie paired Reeves with an established star and co-heartthrob, Patrick Swayze, fresh off hits like "Road House" (1989) and "Ghost" (1990). Together, they would create a surfing bromance too good to be true.

Set against the backdrop of the coastal Los Angeles area, "Point Break" captured the surfing culture of the region, while simultaneously depicting the criminal underbelly of the city. Los Angeles had long been the bank robbery capital of the world, »

The Buddy Holly Story | Blu-ray Review

2 September 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

It’s been quite a long time since Gary Busey was taken seriously as an actor of considerable talent, but back in 1978 he almost took home an Oscar for his spectacular portrayal of Buddy Holly in director Steve Rash’s controversial bio-pic, The Buddy Holly Story. Playing a 19 year old kid from Texas on the cusp of making rock and roll history at the age of 33, Busey lost a considerable amount of weight to embody the 146 pound front man, and more impressively, performed all of the songs sprinkled throughout the film live with a fictionalized version of Holly’s backing band, The Crickets. Though Busey’s portrayal was lauded, the film itself was harshly criticized not only for this fabricated characterization which reduced his real life three piece band, featuring Niki Sullivan, Joe B. Mauldin and J.I. Allison, to a fictional drum and bass duo in Jesse Charles (Don Stroud »

Celebrity Big Brother: Homesick Edele cries, comforted by Gary

1 September 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Celebrity Big Brother housemate Edele became emotional yesterday (August 31) while discussing missing her family.

The B*Witched star ended up in tears after talking to Gary Busey about how the experience has changed how they will appreciate their loved ones.

"I already know how I'll feel when I leave, in terms of accepting life," Gary said. "[Before, I was] a goof, sitting on the couch watching TV."

As he explained that he wants to see his wife and children, Edele said she felt the same way and was looking forward to spending "quality time" with her family.

She began to cry as Gary suggested that tearing up is part of "letting go of those behaviour patterns".

"It's evolution of yourself," he added.

Sunderland Transfers: Borini Snubs Black Cats For Qpr

So much for it not being down to the player.

If Gus Poyet was to be believed a couple of weeks ago, the hold-up in the proposed move for Fabio Borini was nothing to do with the player himself. The manager didn’t expand on that, but you have to suspect it wasn’t because Liverpool didn’t want to sell to a divisional rival…

It must come as something of a surprise then that Borini is now on his way to talk to Qpr over a proposed move, after apparently ignoring Sunderland’s attempts to sign him. Rangers have been in the market for a striker since the departure of Loic Remy, and the Italian would represent a good, experienced option.

According to SkySports’ Gary Cotterill, a fee has been agreed between Queens Park Rangers and Liverpool for his services.

Celebrity Big Brother Frenchy: 'Ricci is a dead fish, Lauren boring'

1 September 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Celebrity Big Brother housemate Frenchy launched a scathing attack on Ricci Guarnaccio and Lauren Goodger in the Diary Room yesterday.

The model, who had an argument with Lauren over the weekend, told Big Brother that she thinks of Ricci as a "dead fish".

"He's boring," she said, explaining that he's only interesting when he's had a drink. "He doesn't have a personality."

Frenchy also set her sights on Lauren, complaining that she always tells the same story.

"Change the record, it gets really boring," she said. "[Lauren] doesn't have confidence and constantly needs me to reassure her... after a while it gets boring.

"She's a gorgeous girl, she's beautiful and very well-spoken, but personality-wise, I don't have anything in common with her."

Frenchy continued to cause controversy with her housemates later in the day, as she chose to sunbathe topless in the garden.

Celebrity Big Brother: Why are the housemates calling James "shady"?

1 September 2014 6:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Celebrity Big Brother housemate James Jordan was called out by fellow contestants for being "shady" yesterday (August 31).

The professional dancer, who has been the centre of controversy on several occasions, began by stirring up a conversation between George Gilbey and Gary Busey.

Gary had advised George not to be nervous and that speaking over people was a bad habit, while George replied that Gary has his own bad habits.

When Gary replied that he is "fixing them" and has "done a lot", George explained that he was only joking.

However, James - who had previously scolded Gary for spilling coffee on the stairs - then joined the conversation and said: "No, he wasn't Gary, he was well out of order... That's nasty, that is."

The conversation then escalated as George heard Gary whispering about him, and shouted: "I think you're being rude and I think you should shush!"

30 August 2014 2:55 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Celebrity Big Brother housemate Stephanie Pratt has received a warning for treatment of fellow housemate Gary Busey.

The pair have clashed numerous times during their stay in the house, with Stephanie taking issue with Gary's hygiene.

Speaking to the Made In Chelsea star in the Diary Room, Big Brother told Stephanie that she was being warned for the words she has used when talking to and about the actor.

Big Brother added that it was "inevitable" that not all housemates would get along, but added that they would step in if a situation was "escalating" in which any housemate would be "excluded" in behaviour that could be "perceived as bullying".

Stephanie accepted the warning, admitting that she had "definitely called him many names" prior to Gary improving his hygiene.

"I messed up," the 28-year-old reality star told Big Brother. "I take full responsibility for that."

Celebrity Big Brother: James Jordan and Gary Busey clear air after row

30 August 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

James Jordan and Gary Busey have made peace following another Celebrity Big Brother clash.

The pair's tempestuous relationship flared up again earlier today when James accused Gary of being "very, very rude" for interrupting a conversation.

The former Strictly Come Dancing professional said he did not want to have to tell Gary off "like you're a child", adding that he feels like a "babysitter sometimes". Gary defended his attempt to interject in the conversation, explaining that he had heard his name mentioned. He told James that his "intention was not to be rude".

The pair reconnected later in the afternoon, when James explained that he thinks the actor is "brilliant", but acknowledged that he can become "angry" at times due to how Gary can speak.

"I like you, apart from when you're rude," the dancer said. "I think you're brilliant. I find you funny, intelligent, fascinating, but when you're rude to me, »

29 August 2014 2:10 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Leslie Jordan has become the second person to leave the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Frenchy, Stephanie and Kellie were all up for eviction alongside the TV and Broadway star, but the 59-year-old playwright received the fewest public votes.

Speaking to Emma Willis after his exit, the Tennessee native said that he was surprised to have left.

"I was told less than seven days ago that I was the most entertaining," he exclaimed.

"I was screaming and cursing and beating down the door... I guess that's entertainment!"

When Willis asked why his personality had transformed and his more volatile moods had subsided, Leslie quipped:

"I was afraid that at any moment, my mother would come down and say, 'I didn't raise him like that!'"

"No, but one time I was called out for eating too much," he continued, "and until James called me out on it, it hadn't crossed my mind. »

Celebrity Big Brother: James Jordan shocked by eviction crowd boos

28 August 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

James Jordan has spoken of his shock at being booed by the Celebrity Big Brother crowd.

The former Strictly Come Dancing professional received strong boos from the live eviction crowd, who watched David McIntosh exit the house last night (August 28).

Despite claiming that he would not let being unpopular with the crowd bother him, he admitted that the booing had got to him. He speculated with fellow housemates that fans may dislike him because he winds people up, or because he spends a lot of his time with female housemates.

However, Leslie Jordan argued that James had also been mean to him, which may have also made him unpopular with viewers.

James went on to admit that he would be "f**ked off" if it was "the other thing" that had led to the booing. But when pressed by Gary Busey, James said that he could not discuss what he hinted at, »

James had theorised the day before that Audley would have been nominated already if he didn't cook for people, saying: "He knows that. Someone told him, 'Cook all the time'.
