You would think that being on a hit show that is viewed in households all across the country, that its stars wouldn’t be as broke as a joke. Here’s one celebrity who is seemingly struggling to make ends meet. “Game Of Thrones” actress Lena Headey, who plays Queen Cersei doesn’t have two nickels to rub together. TMZ reports:
Headey opened up about her dire financial situation in new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, which she filed in response to her husband Peter Loughran’s demands for half of their $46,000 tax refund from 2011 … which technically could be community property from their marriage.
Lena — who filed for divorce from Peter last year — says she needs $6,000 from that refund ASAP because she’s barely scraping by, living off credit to make ends meet for her and their 2-year-old son.
Lena says she expects to receive acting income in the near future, but she needs the $6,000 advance from the refund right now. Lena says she’s willing to give Peter $6,000 from the refund to cover his living expenses … but she wants the rest placed into a two-signature blocked bank account pending a settlement.
The judge denied Peter’s emergency motion for half the money, and Lena’s proposal got tossed out with it … so it’s still unclear how the exes will split the money.
That has to really suck!

Tonight on ABC Celebrity Wife Swap returns again for a whole new episode. On tonight’s show self-proclaimed redneck Heidi Cochran and pageant mom Marianne Curry swap lives. Did you watch last week’s episode when Gina Loudon and Comedian Angela Envy swapped lives? We did and we recapped it here for you.
Heidi Cochran lives in Vancouver, Washington with her husband, Scott, and two children, Josiah (10) and Savannah (4). Heidi spends the majority of her days decked out in camouflage, duck hunting with her husband. She’s not at all concerned with appearances and spends more time singing to her chickens than cleaning her home — which includes a “bone yard” in the backyard and the ever-present “laundry volcano” in the living room.
Marianne Curry, better known as Miss Marion Popcorn Festival 2011, lives in Columbus, Ohio with her doting husband, Craig, and their three children, Marin (7), Leo (6) and Layne (3). Marianne is a pageant mom who regularly practices pageant poses with her kids and dreams of competing on a national level. She and her husband shuttle their kids around to all kinds of after-school activities, including dance, soccer and gymnastics. Marianne believes appearances are very important, and won’t even allow her sons to get haircuts because she thinks it makes them look unique.
We will be covering tonight’s Celebrity Wife Swap, Heidi Cochran and Marianne Curry episode with all the details. For the first time in the show’s history, a family breaks the rules of the swap and refuses to reunite for the roundtable discussion. You don’t want to miss it! Don’t forget to come back to this spot at 8PM for our coverage of the episode.

You’ve seen all of the performances from last night’s episode of the hit singing competition “American Idol” and now America has voted! Who will be sent home on tonight’s elimination episode of the show? Are you caught up with all of the action? If not, you can read our detailed live recap of the episode here.
Who was the weakest link last night? It’s hard to tell, but we know who wasn’t! Both Kree Harrison and Candice Glover rocked our socks last night, despite their respective injuries. We weren’t exactly impressed with Angie Miller’s rendition of “Bring Me To Life” by Evanescence.
Despite the rumors circulating that the show’s producers want an all-girl finale this season, we are hoping that one of the ladies finally gets eliminated tonight. Take Janelle Arthur or Angie Miller — we wouldn’t care either way.
Either way, we will be recapping all of the show’s goodness tonight at 8PM EST when the show airs. Stay tuned and refresh this page often for updates!
The show kicks off with a performance of Queen’s “Somebody To Love” by our top seven contestants. Afterward, Jimmy Iovine gives his recap of each of last night’s rock performances. He predicts that Lazaro will be going home on tonight’s elimination.
Now, we’re catching up with Casey James from season nine. He’s on stage now performing his new song “The Good Life”. He also brought everyone gifts from their hometowns in case they were homesick.
At the moment, the judges are blathering on about their top three choices in the competition. And now for some results:
Safe for next week is Kree Harrison! The next safe contestant is Angie Miller and the final person in the top three is Lazaro Arbos! Carrie Underwood is on the stage performing now. *Mutes television*
It’s been revealed that Candice Glover is also safe, followed by Amber Holcomb. The bottom two consists of Burnell Taylor and Janelle Arthur.
Getting eliminated on tonight’s show is Burnell. Now he has to sing for the judges’ save. He’s singing India.Arie’s “Ready For Love”. Candice is crying, along with Mariah. Will they use their save on Burnell? NO! Randy has informed us that they will not be using their save today. UGH.
What do you think of the elimination tonight? Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts.
Jenny McCarthy is a mother to a ten-year-old, so naturally she won’t date anyone who doesn’t like kids. She learned that the hard way after being set up on a date with a douchey guy who hated children.
During a recent interview with “People” magazine over the weekend in Las Vegas, she talked of a horrible experience with a man. She said, “I was set up by a friend. I flew to the city this guy was in. That’s how much I believe in love. I checked into a hotel, got ready. I went to the restaurant and sat down. Five minutes – maybe two minutes into the conversation – he talked about how much he despised kids.”
He talked of hating kids yet went into the date knowing that Jenny is a mother? What a douche move. She said, “He wanted to set the tone that he wasn’t planning on being a substitute father but he was there for a good time. I didn’t even get to the check. I said, ‘Excuse me.’ I got up and grabbed my purse and walked out the door and flew home.
She added, “Because of that date I do a criteria check before every date. Number one is, ‘Do you like kids?’ And number two is, ‘Do you have kids?’”
“Glee” actress Heather Morris has revealed that she is pregnant by her boyfriend Taylor Hubbell. Congratulations are in order for Heather and Taylor on their happy baby news! Us Magazine reports:
“She’s a little more than three months along and starting to show,” the source says of the Scottsdale, Ariz. native. The dad-to-be is the star’s longtime boyfriend Taylor Hubbell, whom she met in high school.
“It was totally unexpected, but they are incredibly happy and excited,” the source tells Us.
Indeed, Morris, who plays ditzy cheerleader Brittany on the FOX smash, has long been vocal about her eagerness to start a family with Hubbell — even if it means quitting showbiz.
“I want to marry Taylor and have kids with him,” the star told Fitness in 2011. “I love acting, but if it affects my relationship, then I won’t continue.”
Although a second pal says the pair have no plans to wed just yet, a march down the aisle might not be far off. Says the source: “I see it in their future.”
Congratulations to them!
Ever since it was rumored that Liam Hemsworth was skeeving behind Miley Cyrus’ back with the likes of January Jones, we’ve been curious about the state of their relationship.
After he was reportedly cheating on Miley, she took her engagement ring off and he ended up on a flight back to his native Australia. That left us wondering if there was some infidelity going on prior to their walking down the aisle. Now, we’re hearing rumors that Liam actually wants an open relationship with Miley…like that’s ever going to happen!
An insider revealed that Miley isn’t too keen on the idea of sharing her man. The snitch said, “No way in hell are they having an open relationship! That’s not the way Miley was raised, she has morals.”
The spy went on to say, “She’s making sure that she gives Liam his space because she doesn’t want to be needy and they’re still working through stuff, but there’s absolutely no chance she’d agree to an open relationship. Miley is going through a wild phase, but she’s still the same girl underneath and she really believes in true love and soul mates and it’s just ridiculous to think she’d agree to that kind of arrangement!”
Did you hear that, folks? Jay Leno is finally throwing in the towel on “The Tonight Show”. He is turning over the reins to the show to veteran talk show funny man Jimmy Fallon. Finally, a host that we can actually get behind!
Jay took over the show from Johnny Carson back in 1992, and eventually turned it over to Conan O’Brien in 2009. Shortly thereafter, he ousted Coco and returned to the show. That move has left a bad taste in a lot of his viewers’ mouths, so we are holding out hope that he doesn’t give a repeat performance to Jimmy this time around.
The Hollywood Reporter has more of the nifty details:
Jay Leno will conclude his 22-year run headlining Tonight in spring of next year, at which point the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon host will move up an hour to the 11:35 p.m. slot. The move also will see Tonight return to 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York, where it will be executive produced by Fallon’s former Saturday Night Live boss Lorne Michaels.
“Congratulations, Jimmy,” said Leno. “I hope you’re as lucky as me and hold on to the job until you’re the old guy. If you need me, I’ll be at the garage.”
The announcement comes just one month after The Hollywood Reporter revealed NBC was preparing an exit plan for Leno. THR further reported on Tuesday that Fallon had signed the Tonight deal and that Saturday Night Live stalwart Seth Meyers is being eyed as his Late Night replacement.
Will you tune in to watch “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon”? It has a nice ring to it, no?

On Wednesday night, the top seven remaining “American Idol” hopefuls took on rock songs. It was a bit too much for some and others were feeling right at home. The show’s two hard-hitters, Kree Harrison and Candice Glover were both suffering from injuries, but still managed to rock the house. Did you watch the show? If not, read our recap and get caught up!
We’re going to go out on a limb and suggest that Burnell Taylor, Janelle Arthur and Lazaro Arbos will be in the bottom three on Thursday night’s elimination episode. We could be wrong, but we’ve been hearing that the show’s producers are leaning toward a female winner this season. Also of note is that Lazaro has the support of the good folks at VoteForTheWorst on his side, so he may make it another week.
Who do you think is going to be eliminated on Thursday and why?
