KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 10/21/2014

Kris Jenner Says the Bruce Jenner Sex Change Rumors are "Silly"

KRIS JENNER would like you to know that her estranged husband BRUCE is NOT becoming a woman. On the "Today" show yesterday, she said the rumors are "silly" . . . adding, quote, "They've been saying that since the '70s."

Kris also pretended she had no idea who Bruce is dating right now . . . despite rumors that she's FURIOUS at him for hooking up with her best friend.

She said, quote, "I just want him to be happy, I don't care who he goes out with. And I don't know who he's dating, he doesn't check in with me."

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg Have Hot Chocolate Every Night

When they say it's the little things that keep a marriage together, this is what they're talking about: DONNIE WAHLBERG and JENNY MCCARTHY have a daily appointment with each other.

Donnie says, quote, "Jenny and I have hot chocolate together every night. I know a cup of hot chocolate doesn't sound glamorous but it's those quiet moments with us as a family that are my favorite.

"We have our own things during the day, but this is our time to cuddle up and catch up on our days."

We should probably note that Donnie said this at an event hyping the Keurig 2.0, and he made sure to point out that they make their hot chocolate with that machine.

He's also partnered with Keurig for a contest where someone can actually win a coffee date with him.

Kim Kardashian's Demands to Endorse a Product Include Up to $1 Million in Cold, Hard Cash

If you want KIM KARDASHIAN to endorse your product, it's going to cost you BIG TIME. Some trashy website got a hold of some emails between Kim and a company that was hoping to hire her. Here were her demands:

For starters, the endorsement itself costs $750,000 to $1 million. And if you need Kim to actually make an APPEARANCE to hype your brand, she requires a lot more than that.

• She wants FIVE first class plane tickets, plus one in COACH.

• First class hotel accommodations: 1 suite for the "talent" and standard rooms for the rest of her posse.

• A "GLAM FEE" . . . meaning a day rate for her hair and makeup team.

• Plus first-class ground transportation, an airport greeter service, security and a per diem.

Does anyone else find it odd that Kim has ONE employee that she makes fly coach???

Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence's Ex Are Just Friends With Benefits

KRISTEN STEWART and JENNIFER LAWRENCE's ex-boyfriend NICHOLAS HOULT may be hooking up, but don't expect a proposal anytime soon. Apparently, they're just FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS.

A source says, quote, "Kristen absolutely adores Nick. Is she in love with him? No, not at all. She's in love with her independence right now and the peace that comes with not dating anyone seriously."

That's because Kristen still considers ROBERT PATTINSON the love of her life, and she's still not ready for anything serious. And, in typical guy fashion, Nick is cool with the no-strings arrangement.

"Sharknado 3" Will Take Place Across the Eastern Seaboard

It still remains unclear whether America will care about yet another "Sharknado" movie . . . but in case YOU do, they've announced where it's going to be set.

The third movie will begin in Washington, D.C., before the action moves down to Orlando. Or, as the official "Sharknado" Twitter account calls it, the "Feast Coast." The first movie was in L.A., and the sequel was set in New York City.

There's still no title for "Sharknado 3" . . . and we don't know whether IAN ZIERING and TARA REID will be back. Last we heard, Ian was holding out for more money. The third movie will air sometime next year.

Kooking with Kardashian?

Kris Jenner - aka Mama Kardashian - showed up on The Today Show yesterday, hawking her new kookbook.

Because when you think of kuisine, your mind instantly goes to "Kardashian," am I right?

In her defense, she says she's been feeding her khildren since she had Kourtney when Kris was just 22. "They give you a baby, you've gotta feed it."

If that doesn't get her some sort of Mom of the Year award - well, it will just be a travesty.

Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?

There's a company that sells giant stuffed plush versions of various microbial organisms - among them, the Ebola virus, which they call "the T. Rex of microbes."

And guess what?

With so much talk about Ebola these days - and by "talk," I mean "panic" - the entire stock of Ebola toys has sold out.

That includes the small Ebola doll ($9.95), the gigantic Ebola doll ($29.95) and the Ebola Petri Dish ($14.95).

Yup, that's exactly what we want our kids playing with these days, isn't it?

The video below was made about three years ago - but check it out anyway.

Your Name is Neil Diamond...

Neil Diamond's kicking off a new concernt tour, and he's started on the talk show circuit.

He popped into The Tonight Show to chat with Jimmy Fallon about his legendary career - he's a member of both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, you know.

But the conversation turned to his name. "Neil Diamond" is his real name, but early on in the business, he thought about changing it.

Listen to the conversation for the full story.

Then play it again, but mute the video, and tell me if this guy isn't looking a little bit like Sean Connery these days.

Man on a Leash?

Jada Pinkett Smith showed up to audition for the role of Fish Mooney on Fox’s Gotham with a man on a leash.

Her character is a shady club owner in Gotham who has relationships with a lot of underworld characters – and maybe a less than honorable relationship with some of Gotham’s finest as well.

Last weekend, she told folks at the PaleyFest that she wanted to show the producers that she understood her character. So instead of talking about Fish Mooney, she decided to show them.

She showed up in a short wig and a long flowing gown with a shirtless man on a leash.

She says she went “method.” The dude on the leash went “canine,” I guess.

She also has a strong presence on Twitter, keeping in touch with her fans by tweeting.

Slogans Can Hurt

Ellen Degeneres is all over the Red Bull class action lawsuit.

You'll recall that the makers of the energy drink settled their case recently, offering a $13 million payout to consumers who may have been duped into believing that Red Bull gives you wings.

On yesterday's Ellen, viewers got to meet a man who believes most slogans, and is suing everyone from Nike to Exxon to Ellen herself.

Check it out.

Breaking Bad Action

A mom in Florida has started a petition to get the Toys ‘R’ Us chain to take Breaking Bad action figures off their shelves.

The mom doesn’t like the message that the figures send, saying that kids mimic what their action figures do.

The Walter White doll, for instance, comes complete with bags of cash and methamphetamine.

The mom admits that she liked the series – even found it riveting – but she wants the figures out of Toys ‘R’ Us

Bryan Cranston, who played Walter in the series, had an interesting take on the whole thing, with a fun tweet yesterday.

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 10/20/2014

Was Justin Bieber Scolded for Kicking a Ball Around the Vatican

Word has it JUSTIN BIEBER was "reprimanded" for kicking a SOCCER BALL around the Vatican recently.

Justin reportedly shelled out over $25,000 for a private tour of Vatican City . . . but apparently, he got bored just walking around inside old buildings, so he had to kick the ball around in the halls. The staff was NOT amused . . . and he was, quote, "very strongly told off."

Justin hasn't commented, and probably won't. However, he did post a photo on Instagram a week ago, of him at the Vatican . . . with his soccer ball.

David Letterman's Cue Card Guy Was Fired After He Attacked One of His Writers

DAVID LETTERMAN's longtime cue card guy was FIRED after he put his hands on "Late Show" writer BILL SCHEFT a little over a week ago.

69-year-old TONY MENDEZ says Scheft has been a passive-aggressive A-HOLE to him for years, and his temper finally got the best of him.

He says, quote, "I just grabbed him by the shirt. He was very surprised. He didn't say a word. He was cowering, his eyes were real big, he probably peed a little bit on his pants."

The New York Post says Mendez was fired on the spot, but he doesn't blame Letterman. He says it was CBS' call to let him go. And he adds, quote, "Dave is the best, the most generous boss I have ever had. Dave would never do anything to harm me."

He added that the show offered to pay his salary and health insurance until Letterman steps down as host next year. Mendez had been with Letterman since 1993.

Is Bruce Jenner Hooking Up With Kris Jenner's Best Friend?

KRIS JENNER is reportedly FREAKING, because BRUCE JENNER is having relations with her best friend and former assistant, Ronda Kimihara.

They were spotted going to dinner and an ELTON JOHN concert in L.A. earlier this month, and a source says Kris is, quote, "torn apart and angry," and she's CRYING EVERY NIGHT.

But E! Online that they're NOT dating. Their families have been close for DECADES, so they're just good friends. Of course, E! is Kardashian media headquarters, so they might just be trying to spin this.

Something's Amiss in the Sullivan Theater

Bill Mendez, a long-time cue card guy on The Late Show with David Letterman, lost his job recently.

According to the reports, he got into an argument with one of the show's writers over the cue cards. The fight allegedly ended with Mendez grabbing the writer by the front of his shirt and pinning him to a nearby wll.

So that's it - the cue card man has been fired.

If you've got cue card experience and don't mind a short-term position, be sure to send in your application.

Letterman is retiring in April.

Maybe it would be better to apply with Stephen Colbert...
