Anderson filed for divoce from Salomon on July 3, slightly less than seven months after they secretly tied the knot in the beginning of January, reported E! News. In the fall of 2013, Anderson had revealed that she and Salomon had reconciled following their 2008 split and were enjoying their time together.
"I say we're best friends… with benefits," Anderson told Ellen DeGeneres, who asked about the rumored reconciliation on her talk show in October of last year. “I'm very happy. We're happy,” Anderson continued. “He's a great guy."
Last month, rumors swirled that Anderson was no longer as happy as she once was with her husband during their second go at marriage. “It definitely won't last," the insider told Us Weekly. "She likes bad boys, »
"Hey, Hillz! Nice meeting you. Lemme write you a song when you run for president!" That's basically how Katy Perry followed up her meeting with Hillary Clinton at a book signing last Friday. And Clinton seemed down with it, oddly enough. .@katyperry Well that's not a Hard Choice. You already did!

The years 2008 and 2009 really weren’t that long ago. So it seems a bit odd to reflect on Breaking Bad—it just wrapped its final season in September and is an Emmys hopeful this year—or Lady Gaga when they are still relevant today. “Remember when” just doesn’t carry as much meaning here as it does with the earlier episodes in VH1′s I Love the 2000s series.
That being said, the show’s brilliant talking heads brought the last two installments in the series to life. (I certainly wasn’t sorry I spent my Saturday night watching them, »

Anyone else terribly disappointed by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding photos? They're just two great-looking famous people in normal wedding regalia. Hate it. Celebrity weddings are supposed to offend the senses with obnoxious nerve and disgusting smiles. Let's pick the definitive celebrity photo of all time, one that's hilarious, decadent, and secretly a little bit awesome. First contender: 1. Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney. God, the sexual heat jumping off these two. Who can take it? Renee is wincing wildly and Kenny is dressed like a yoga-practicing Puritan. A fine choice. Or is the best wedding photo this classic snapshot of... 2. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline This is awesomely ridiculous while at the same time emitting no sensuality. And I have the unnerving feeling that Kevin is more aware of what's going on than Britney. Shivers. Here's a dark horse: 3. Kid Rock and Pam Anderson. They got married on a yacht. »

It's been nearly two decades since Chris Farley died. But his Tommy Boy and Black Sheep costar, David Spade, said that he thinks of the physical comedy genius every day in a Reddit Ama session Wednesday. Recalling stories about their time together on Saturday Night Live to his decision not to attend Farley's funeral, Spade wrote his answers with detail and candor. He also discussed his film and TV career beyond Farley, including a surprising number of questions about his 2001 movie The Adventures of Joe Dirt and his magazine-themed sitcom Just Shoot Me. »
Apparently, it will be the first sequel ever produced exclusively for Crackle, and the comedian is trying to find a way to bring Joe Dirt 2 in for a very low budget without losing any of the quality. He explains.
"We wrote a sequel, and we may wind up doing it on Crackle.com, because they want to be the first web address to do a sequel to a movie. Because Sony owns them, and it's a Sony movie. We're trying to find a way to make it for the budget, but we really want to do it. And keep it good."
He went onto discuss the logistics of getting the movie made, and that the soundtrack needed for the sequel may prove to be a problem for the low budget. »
When their participants are on point, Reddit AMAs can be hilarious and insightful, gut-wrenching, awesome, or freaky. David Spade did an Ama this morning, and he was surprisingly game to discuss anything from the Razzie Awards to skateboarding accidents and the late Chris Farley. Also, that "a lot of people have sweaty hands, and when they come up to me it's like shaking hands with a sham-wow."
What seemed to get him talking the most was "Joe Dirt," the 2001 movie about a radio station janitor whose life stories mesmerize audiences and turn him into a star. "Joe Dirt" played on some rather tasteless class tropes, not the least of which was Spade's majestic mullet wig. In any case, one Redditor asked about a possible sequel, which Spade was all too eager to discuss.

I've used this space on a few occasions to profess my love for Espn Films' 30 for 30 documentary series and today's opening paragraph will get a similar treatment. Director Zak Levitt's aptly titled Bad Boys debuted this past Thursday night and, even as someone who grew up adoring the Chicago Bulls, I loved almost every second of it (even with his Detroit roots, I could have lived without the Kid Rock narration). The film focuses on the years of Detroit Pistons basketball known as "The Bad Boys Era", which included back-to-back NBA Championships for the franchise in '89 and '90. As is often the case with 30 for 30 films, Levitt does a nice job of framing the Pistons' iconic run within a societal context; in this case, the 1967 Detroit riot. In doing this, the pic not only offers a fascinating perspective of the team itself but also great insight into what their »

The current golden age of sports documentaries hits a tin-plated patch this week with two flawed if interesting entries: “Bad Boys,” Espn’s nostalgic “30 for 30” trip to hoops heaven, devoted to the bruising Detroit Pistons team of the 1980s; and “Arnie,” a three-part Golf Channel ode to Arnold Palmer, timed to piggyback on the network’s Masters coverage. Both have their moments, but “Bad Boys” gets a little too cute for its own good, while “Arnie” highlights the peril of having all the time in the world to devote to a single topic, even if that means slicing off into the trees.
“Bad Boys,” directed by Zak Levitt and produced by NBA Entertainment, certainly has juicy subject matter in the Pistons, who embraced a physical style of play and take-no-prisoners attitude that earned them hatred around the league (with several former opponents saying as much) but garnered adoration in the Motor City, »

Mark McGrath may be one of the nicest guys in Hollywood, and it's paid off -- though he's still going out on the road with Sugar Ray as part of the Under the Sun tour kicking off in June, he's also found a second career in front of the cameras. He'll be appearing in "Sharknado 2: The Second One" on July 31 (9:00 p.m. on Syfy). Melinda and I (who could not get "Fly" out of our heads pretty much the entire time, dammit) taked to McGrath about pretty much everything you can imagine, from the last American rock god to freezing with sharks. Oh, and we kind of got him to take off his shirt. Too bad for you this is an audio-only podcast. Here's the rundown: :50 Kid Rock and Sugar Ray 2:10 Stone Temple Pilots 2:20 Who is the last American rock star? Mark McGrath knows 2: »

With swords in hand and palace intrigue in the shadows, HBO’s Game Of Thrones was back for its fourth season last night with a record-breaking 6.6 million viewers. That’s up 52% over the 4.4 million who tuned in for the Season 3 debut on March 31, 2013 – no wonder GoT crashed HBO Go last night. Sunday’s viewership result is not only the most watched GoT episode ever but is the second-best result HBO has seen since the 11.9 million who watched the series finale of The Sopranos back in 2007. The Season 4 opener also soared 23% up from the 5.4 million viewers the Season 3 finale drew on June 9. Until last night, the most-watched GoT episode ever was the May 5, 2013, airing that pulled in an audience of 5.5 million. With two more plays last night, GoT had a gross audience of 8.2 million on Sunday. Related: ‘Game Of Thrones’ Gets “Welcome Back” From ‘House Of Cards’ With GoT as a lead-in, »

Where can you drink liquid shrimp and sip champagne out of test tubes at a party where a megastar like Kid Rock is the poorest person in the room? The fantasy land that is Silicon Valley, home to the tech industry's beating heart, and the insatiable nerds who flock there in search of millions in start-up money. That's the subjects of Mike Judge's latest show, Silicon Valley, and now HBO has made the first episode available to stream on YouTube following its premiere Sunday night. Indeed, Kid Rock shows »
Let no one say Mike Judge doesn't have it in for The Man. As in "Office Space," the new HBO series "Silicon Valley" follows the trials of a group of under-appreciated ham-and-eggers hoping to break free of the bottom rung. Unlike "Office Space," the plan here is to do it honestly. Initially it looks like programmer Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) has big dreams but little to back them up. By day he works as a grunt for a thoroughly ridiculous (and Google-riffic) megacompany called Hooli. Some of the best jokes in the pilot come at Hooli's expense, and while a lot of the humor is tech company-specific, anyone who has worked for a massive corporate entity will feel a queasy sense of recognition. When Richard takes the cushy, company-run bus into work (a real-life perk for Google employees), riders must suffer through an annoyingly slick video plug for the company from ego-bloated founder Gavin Belson. »

In the age of the nerd, HBO’s “Silicon Valley” takes the term geek chic head on.
In the opening scene of the first episode, Kid Rock makes a cameo by performing for extremely wealthy tech geeks for no apparent reason at all — besides the fact that they are billionaires and can afford it.
“It takes some time to go, ‘Oh whoa, these people that you just thought were weirdos in high school are actually getting rich and that’s where the money’s going,’ and that chic probably follows all of that,” said creator Mike Judge.

This Sunday is the biggest day on the calendar year for those of us who still prefer this Steve Austin over the one from The Six Million Dollar Man and who still get the urge to patriotically tear off our shirts whenever this terrible Rick Derringer song kicks in. It’s WrestleMania XXX (that’s XXX as in “30,” not in porn terms), and it’s airing live from New Orleans on Sunday night.
I’m particularly excited for this iteration of the show thanks to the development that has completely re-aligned the way I watch and think about the WWE’s theatrical grappling arts. »

The Silicon Valley presented in the terrific new HBO comedy of the same name (it debuts Sunday night at 10) is a kind of Wild West for nerds: a lawless territory where they can be among their own kind rather than struggle to fit into a more structured world that doesn't understand them, and a place where they can seek massive fortune along the way. That vision of the Valley also fits HBO itself in a way, since it's long been a place where creative types with idiosyncratic personalities and specific, uncompromising creative visions could go to find success in a safer, more wide-open environment. It's where David Chase could go when he was on the verge of quitting the TV business altogether and tell the story of a wiseguy in therapy. It's where David Milch could go to be given the absolute freedom to succeed so beautifully with "Deadwood" (and »

Justin Bieber may have made the Calabasas mansion infamous (ahem, Egg-Gate) but Khloé Kardashian plans to make the recently purchased pad all her own. Step one in that makeover process? Hiring a big name interior designer. Although the 29-year-old previously worked with Jeff Andrews on her last home, this time she decided to switch things up. So, she went with Martyn Lawrence Bullard. The British interior designer—who appears on Bravo's Million Dollar Decorators—clients include Cher, Christina Aguilera, Elton John and Kid Rock. And despite once being named International Interior Designer of the Year, Bullard isn't afraid of dirty work. "You know, sometimes I get down on my hands and knees »
