Celebrity Scandals: Gossip Center http://gossipcenter.com/site/rss2 en Gossipcenter.com Copyright 2010 Celebrity-Gossip.net - All Rights Reserved Wed, 23 Apr 2014 19:27:50 -0400 Joan Rivers Talks About Being a Woman in Comedy with Michigan Avenue Magazine http://gossipcenter.com/magazines/joan-rivers-talks-about-being-woman-comedy-michigan-avenue-magazine-1124025 Taking a break from the set of "Fashion Police," Joan Rivers graced the cover of Michigan Avenue magazine's May 2014 issue.

After posing for a few photos with Charles William Bush, the outspoken comedian reflected on being a woman in the industry and her strong bond with daughter Melissa.

Check out highlights from Joan's interview below and for more head over to Michigan Avenue!

On comedy being a boy’s club when she started out:
"Look at the women that are in it: Ellen DeGeneres, lesbian. Rosie O’Donnell, lesbian. Paula Poundstone, lesbian. Jane Lynch, lesbian.… Seriously, it’s not a boys’ club, and it wasn’t then. It just didn’t appeal to women, and when I started in the ’60s, if you were pretty, you were a singer. You didn’t want to stand onstage and make a fool of yourself. Women [had to be] very strong and not attractive to be considered funny. Tina Fey’s changed that; Sarah Silverman now looks so gorgeous. It’s changed a lot now—they’ll accept funnier women."

On what she is proudest of when looking back at her career:
"That I’m still here—and I’m totally relevant. I just switched agencies, and they went to look at who watches me, who my core group is, and 22 years old is the average age. How about that one? And of course it goes all the way up and all the way out. Whatever I’m doing, I’m of the moment, and I’m so proud of that. I’m not doing Wendell Willkie jokes."

On the key to her longevity:
"Formaldehyde. [Laughs] No, I’m just lucky. I come from a family where there was always in every generation one woman with great energy. That, and eating whatever I want. I don’t believe in 'Oh, today you should eat wheat, and tomorrow don’t touch wheat, and coffee is bad for you, coffee is good for you....' I call it 'scrounge eating.' I truly eat every morning a bag of Cheetos. And airplane food I totally believe in."

On her relationship with her daughter Melissa:
"She’s very upset because she just found out she’s not adopted. Really threw her. No, we do very well. Every time we have a big fight, though, I just strip naked and say, “One day, you’re going to look like this,” and that just kills her. We’re very lucky. We have a very good mother-daughter relationship. Of course we argue—we’re very strong women. She’s the executive producer of Fashion Police, she’s the costar of Joan Knows Best, she’s on my Internet show, In Bed with Joan.... We work together, and we have differences, and we’re a mother and daughter, so you have differences over that. And she gets upset when I bring sailors home—she hates when I come to get a condom. [Laughs]"

Rita Ora Talks Rob Kardashian and Rihanna at Power 105.1 http://gossipcenter.com/rita-ora/rita-ora-talks-rob-kardashian-and-rihanna-power-1051-1125001 She has kept quiet about her past relationship with reality star Rob Kardashian, but on Wednesday (April 23), Rita Ora opened up about their issues during an interview with Power 105.1.

Asked about what happened to them as a couple, the “How We Do” hottie explained, "I don't want to talk about this too much because people move onward and upwards. But it was a phase and a moment in my life and now, you know, onward and upwards."

After the subject of an angry tweet sent by the Kardashian brother came up, Rita explained, "I think people react to things differently and like to express their feelings in certain ways. I don't tend to use social media, so when that whole situation happened, silence for me is the biggest form of flattery, and I love to just keep it moving, unless I need to say something,” adding, "Don't get me wrong, he's a great dude."

During the interview, the British beauty was also asked how she feels about being compared to Rihanna, to which she replied, “I love her. I think she's dope, and all these comparisons, it's really pretty flattering. It's better than being compared to Shrek or something like that."

Jamie Dornan: I'm Looking Forward to a Role Where “I Don’t Have to Tie Women to Beds” http://gossipcenter.com/jamie-dornan/jamie-dornan-im-looking-forward-role-where-%E2%80%9Ci-don%E2%80%99t-have-tie-women-beds%E2%80%9D-1124403 He’s taken on the role of Christian Grey in the “Fifty Shades” films, and Jamie Dornan revealed that he’s ready to stray away from the kinky roles.

After prepping for the E L James novel-based movie and playing a serial killer in “The Fall,” Dornan is very skilled in the knot trying department.

"There are a couple of classic knots I know now," the 31-year-old told The Guardian, "and I've put them to good use far too many times recently. In fact I'd like to do a job where I don't have to tie women to beds."

As for the new attention he receives after landing the Christian role, Jamie explained, "The whole thing's ridiculous. It's just all a bit silly the way it works. I think I could lose my mind."

But the fame certainly has its advantages. "Right now I don't need to work if there's nothing that I want to do. I've done three jobs back to back. Let's see how they are received. If there's nothing I want to do, I'll just play golf and change nappies,” Jamie finished.

Victoria Beckham: Sometimes I Doubt Myself http://gossipcenter.com/victoria-beckham/victoria-beckham-sometimes-i-doubt-myself-1124819 Her clothing line is a tremendous success, but even Victoria Beckham doubts herself at times.

During an interview with Mashable, the newly 40-year-old designer explained, “I think everybody has crazy moments of self-doubt and an element of that is probably quite important. There's nothing wrong with having a second little person sitting on your shoulder, making sure that you're remaining appreciative."

"But you should definitely not waste too much time being negative in any way. It's about positive thinking, positive energy, and fighting if you need to fight,” Miss Beckham adds.

Victoria adds that she always dreamed of being a designer, but didn’t feel the need to “prove anything to anybody".

"I didn't go into this to prove anything to anybody other than myself," she revealed. “I was very focused. I didn't try to do everything at once."

Victoria launched her first collection in 2009 and earned more than $1.5 million in profits by 2012.
