INSELTOWN TATTLER…

JIMMY KIMMEL and wife Molly McNearney welcomed a baby girl yesterday. It’s their first child together, while Kimmel has two children from his first marriage. Jimmy went on Twitter to announce the news and thank his followers for their well wishes. He then referred to his show's Mean Tweets segment by tweeting, "turns out, not ALL tweets are mean!" Molly also tweeted, "Kids, don't do drugs. Until you have a baby…Then do ALL OF THEM." Incidentally, they named their daughter Jane Kimmel.
After being photographed looking a little more top-heavy, SELENA GOMEZ boob job rumors have sprouted. The rumors started this week after she was seen wearing a low-cut tank top in New York City, however, sources say the rumors are false, although that didn’t come from her official rep.
Photos of KELLY OSBOURNE taking a tumble while leaving a restaurant in London with her boyfriend this week have hit the tabloids and she later went on Twitter to say she was pushed by the paparazzi. However, the photographers say that’s not the case and that Kelly, who looked "a bit worse for wear" stumbled and fell on her own. (See here)
The newly-available PAMELA ANDERSON shared a poem on her Facebook page that she wrote just two days after she officially filed for divorce from Rick Salomon. Obviously no Emily Dickinson, Pam writes: "I miss PLAYBOY/The End of an Era/Chivalry, elegance/Celebrated imperfections/differences/hot, passionate dreamy scenes/The girl next door-- shyness-- "it's my first time"/but - not my last....(wink)". "Is it healthy, to be fantasized about...by many men --?/Isn't that the goal/How many can we effect/It's natural to want to be desired—". "You know- It's not freaky enough to just be beautiful--I've never felt beautiful-I always felt sexual... and blind…oh wowwy... I'm losing my mind--I'm shutting down-- It's such a strange feeling… going numb... in front of everyone----"

ATELINE HOLLYWOOD…

New Movies in Theatres…
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - More monkey business unfolds as the primates take charge with Andy Serkis, Gary Oldman and Keri Russell. PG-13

The PRIMETIME EMMY nominations were announced yesterday and Game of Thrones led the way with 19, followed by Fargo with 18 and American Horror Story: Coven with 17. Thrones will square off against Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, House of Cards, Mad Men and True Detective for best drama series. On the comedy side, Modern Family will try to duplicate Frasier's five-peat as it goes up against The Big Bang Theory, Louie, Orange Is the New Black, Silicon Valley and Veep. Laverne Cox became the first openly transgender Emmy nominee for her work in “Orange Is The New Black.”  Seth Meyers hosts the Emmy Awards Monday, August 25th on NBC.


Not everyone can win an Emmy Award, or even be nominated but, as usual, there were some surprising snubs. “The Good Wife” was snubbed, aside from a nomination for Julianna Margulies. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was left out in the cold after their surprise win at the Golden Globes. “Mad Men’s” Elisabeth Moss was also left out, as was “Modern Family’s” Sofia Vergara and “The Blacklist’s” James Spader. The biggest surprise may be that none of the four broadcast networks - ABC, CBS, Fox & NBC were nominated in the Outstanding Drama category.
ABC has confirmed what everyone knew – that ROSIE O’DONNELL will return to THE VIEW in the fall.
It looks like GLEE is going out with a whimper. Fox has cut the number of episodes for its final season to just 13. The final season begins in 2015.

USIC NOTES…

AC/DC has completed work on a new album. Brian Johnson says, “We’re done. I’m very excited and we’ve got some great songs.” That’s the good news. The bad news is Malcolm Young has been hospitalized with the illness that forced him to take a break from the band, prompting rumors that AC/DC would call it quits. While they won’t disclose the nature of his illness, Johnson said: “We miss Malcolm obviously. He’s a fighter. He’s in hospital but he’s a fighter. We’ve got our fingers crossed that he’ll get strong again.” Young’s brother Angus filled in for the sessions alongside Malcolm’s nephew Stevie Young. 
GREEN DAY’S MIKE DIRNT and the band’s longtime manager Pat Magnarella are producing a movie called Crickets. It’s the story of a dying stand-up comic, who asks his estranged office worker brother to go on stage and perform his material for him to see if he ever really had talent.
The TV special "THE BEATLES: The Night That Changed America" received six Emmy Awards nominations, including Outstanding Variety Special.
THE KINKS are slamming a new BBC Radio 2 documentary that alleges Jimmy Page played on their 1964 hit, "You Really Got Me." The rumor has floated around for quite some time and has long since been debunked. Dave Davies wrote an all-caps message on Facebook saying, "BBC tells lies about Dave Davies and the Kinks in their new documentary. I, Dave Davies, invented the distorted guitar sound and played the solo on 'You Really Got Me' and Ray Davies played rhythm guitar. We never used ANY other guitarists on any Kinks hits."
ROBIN THICKE might want to forget about Paula and try to get his fans back. After lackluster sales of his new album, ‘Paula,’ in America, it sold only 530 copies in Britain, 550 copies in his native Canada and less than 54 copies in Australia. The Australian charts rank the top 500 albums and number 500 sold 54…but Thicke’s disc didn’t chart and ranked somewhere below that.

USIC NOTES 2…

THE INDIGO GIRLS plan to hit the studio this fall to work on a new album. The girls say they hope to make "something that's different and pushes us a little bit." No word on a possible release date.
Dermatologists say that JUSTIN BIEBER could save lives…or at least he could’ve before he changed his hairstyle. Doctors say that boys, or for that matter girls, who wear their hair in bangs like Justin used to tend to have fewer freckles on their foreheads, which is a risk factor for skin cancer. Incidentally, doctors are calling this study the “Big Bang Theory.”
KE$HA has written an essay for Elle UK about her stint in rehab as she battled an eating disorder. Ke$ha also addresses her own issues of insecurity and the pressures she faces as a female pop star in the music industry. Ke$ha writes: "Sure, I've written songs about partying, but my dirty little secret is that I'm actually incredibly responsible." (See entire article here)
If you don’t get a chance to catch one of BEYONCE and JAY Z’S stops during their worldwide On the Run Tour, you can catch it on HBO. Their September 12th and 13th dates in Paris will be filmed and will feature Beyonce and Jay Z performing more than 40 songs. No word yet on an air date.
A video clip has surfaced showing RIHANNA grinding on some guy she brought onstage, pushed down and proceeded to straddle. Since she’s not on tour now, it’s presumably from her Loud outing back in 2011, in which she routinely gave lap dances to lucky fans while performing the song "Skin." (See here)
DR. DRE, who just made billions selling his Beats headphone company, says he also lost billions from Chinese knockoffs. Dre could make billions more dollars as he plans to sue the alleged counterfeiters. Beats is suing to stop all sales of the fakes and to take over all of the domain names used by websites selling them.

USIC NOTES 3…

GARTH BROOKS had his big press conference yesterday and announced plans for a new album that’ll be released "around Black Friday," the big shopping day after Thanksgiving. Brooks also announced that his music will finally be available digitally on his website at GarthBrooks.com. There’ll also be a world tour, but you’re going to have to wait another week for the details.
It looks like DOLLY PARTON won’t be adopting a new dog. Dolly offered to adopt a stray pup that was found by cleanup crews following last week's Glastonbury Music Festival in England, which they named Doggie Parton, if the owners didn’t come forward. However, the owners have claimed the pooch and the delay in doing so was apparently due to a language barrier.
LEANN RIMES hit the beach in a teeny bikini while surrounded by Santa's elves to tape an announcement about her Christmas tour. The tour will kick off with something "really, really special in New York City" that she won’t divulge just yet. (See clip here)

HE WATERCOOLER…

The full moon this weekend will be the first of three so-called "Super-moons" we’ll see this year. The moon will be at its fullest early Saturday morning, so you’ll get a good look both Friday and Saturday nights. A Super-moon occurs when the moon is somewhat closer to Earth than it typically is and is most noticeable when it occurs at the same time as a full moon. The other Super-moons will be in August and September, with the one in August being the biggest.
Mike Boyer showed up nearly a day before the first legal marijuana dispensary opened up in Spokane, Washington. His patience was rewarded as he became the first person in the city to purchase legal marijuana. He also became the first person to lose his job over it. Of course, TV cameras were on the scene and Mike was happy to oblige when news crews asked for an interview. Among the viewers was his boss, who almost immediately asked him to take a drug test. Mike says he told them he'd fail, so they fired him before the results came in, even though he says his record was spotless.
There’s good news for stoners and snackers as Hostess is sharing Chocodiles with everyone. They’re basically chocolate-covered Twinkies and they’ve been available on the West Coast since the late 1990s. However, Hostess now plans to sell them nationwide in original, chocolate crème, strawberry crème, and banana crème flavors.
It looks like the Manassas, Virginia police department won’t be getting into the child pornography business. Police have abandoned their controversial plan to photograph a 17-year-old boy's genitalia as evidence in a sexting case against him. Authorities planned to compare the photos with a pornographic video of himself that he allegedly sent to his 15-year-old girlfriend. However, the boy still faces child pornography charges because of the sexting. His girlfriend, who also sent him intimate photos, hasn’t been arrested.

HE WATERCOOLER 2…

You may recall the story of Kendall Jones. She’s the Texas cheerleader who received both online hate and support for posting photos of herself smiling as she stood over animals she killed while on safari in Africa. Since then a parody page surfaced on Facebook called Kill Kendall Jones that shows smiling animals standing over her lifeless body. Her dad contacted Facebook demanding they take down the page, but Facebook refused, saying it didn’t rise to the level of genuine risk or physical harm and didn't violate company standards. Apparently Facebook had second thoughts as the page has since vanished.
Nyjah Cousar has grabbed her 15 minutes of online fame by accidentally sending a naked selfie to her father! While some think the story is a hoax, Nyjah identifies herself as a 23-year-old student from Inglewood, California. Her fame began after she not only sent dad her selfie; she chronicled the ensuing dialogue between the two on Twitter. After asking how to cancel a text message, Nyjah tweeted: "OMG MY DAD WONT STOP CALLING ME!" Nyjah still found the humor in it tweeting, "LMFAO I CANNOT STOP LAUGHING! BUT WHEN I FINALLY SEE MY DAD...ITS A WRAP." When she refused to answer his calls, her father threatened to stop by her house after work. Nyjah tweeted, "imma record my dad when his ass shows up . but from afar !!!!" Sure enough, she shared a clip of her father yelling "open up the goddamn door" from outside her bedroom adding, "It's called Twitter, not titter."
What’s the number-one restaurant chain among millennials? That would be In-N-Out Burger. They have about 300 locations, mostly on the West Coast, and a “secret” menu that lets customers dream up all sorts of special burgers. However, for Gen X and Baby Boomers, the favorite is Papa Murphy’s take-and-bake pizza. (What’s your favorite chain?)

UH…

Back in 2012, Todd Akin was running for Senator in Missouri. Akin’s campaign derailed when he stuck his foot in his mouth while addressing female reproduction by saying that he believed pregnancy can be prevented by a woman involved in “legitimate rape” because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” Following the ensuing firestorm Akin apologized, saying he made a “very, very serious error.” Akin is now taking back his apology, blaming the news media for his downfall and stating medical science backs his assertion.
Eliminated from Father of the Year contention is New Castle, Delaware’s Michael Penn. Like a good father, the 25-year-old Michael was taking his three children for a walk. Unfortunately, that walk was interrupted by police, who wanted to chat about his arrest warrant for a recent shoplifting adventure at a Verizon store. When asked to put down his eight-month-old baby boy, officers noticed Michael slipping something into its diaper. That something was 16 packets of heroin stamped with brand names like “Bioshock” and “Death.” Michael was taken to jail having added narcotics, resisting arrest, and child endangerment charges to his shoplifting count.
Police were called to the trailer of Naylor, Missouri’s 59-year-old Bobby Leonard after he and his wife got into an argument. Officers arrived to find the presumably soon-to-be ex-Mrs. Naylor laying on the front porch covered in blood. Bobby allegedly told the officer he shot his wife because he was "tired of her." At last report Mrs. Naylor was in stable condition, which is more than can be said for Mr. Naylor, who faces first-degree domestic assault and armed criminal action charges.
Amanda Ahumada was being held in New Mexico’s Torrance County jail for violating her parole following a DUI bust. It looks like Amanda will be extending her Orange is the New Black experience a bit longer because, while in custody, she confessed to the armed robbery of a Holiday Inn Express in May. Apparently her brief stay there didn’t make her any smarter as she said she robbed the motel because she needed money to buy beer.

O’ DUH…

Patrick Hughes hadn't lived in McClain County, Oklahoma very long…and he won’t. While celebrating 4th of July with friends, fireworks and alcohol, Hughes decided to hold one of the explosives above his head. When one of the other guests saw him with his hands above his head and the embers falling, she screamed, ‘That’s not a good idea!’ She was right. Investigators say Patrick placed the fireworks shell upside down inside a launching tube and it fired out the bottom, hitting him in the head and killing him.
Reading is often a great way to improve your intelligence. Such was not the case for one unnamed New Jersey bus driver. While negotiating stop-and-go traffic with more than 40 passengers on board, the driver took out a book and began reading. One of the commuters captured the story time on his cell phone camera and noted that once the traffic cleared out; the driver ditched the book and focused on the road. The New Jersey Traffic Authority says it plans to take swift and appropriate action upon the completion of their investigation.
Jacksonville, Florida’s Courtney Spruill has been suspended from her job after she attended a soccer party. During the party, Courtney was seen drinking, twerking and receiving a lap dance from another guest. Unfortunately, this wasn’t a World Cup Party, but a gathering for the soccer team of Kernan Middle School, where Courtney was a coach and health teacher.
Can you arrest me now? A number of female customers of the Verizon store in Hudson, Wisconsin recently complained of receiving lewd photos and messages.
