Celebrity execs and personal handlers at this year's Grammys have been ordered to keep Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood far away from each other during Sunday's awards ceremony so they don't scratch each others' eyes out or something. Not only are the two both tributaries from District Blonde-Country-Crossover who must eventually battle to the death, but a Team Swift source claims that "Taylor feels Carrie is always rude to her, so she steers clear of her." At last year's CMAs Underwood and her co-host Brad Paisely negged Swift about her relationship with Conor Kennedy; Underwood also once told Allure Mag rather tersely: "I'm not close to her."
The rumor is being disputed with the citation of this photo of Swift and Underwood hugging, as if that's some kind of proof that they're biffles. But think of all the times you've hugged some asshole you hated just because people were watching. And you're probably not even famous! [HuffPo, Us Weekly]
Although this is the last-ever thing I'd want to think of iconic Sweet Charity star and overall awesome Shirley MacLaine, her daughter Sachi Parker, now 56, claims in a forthcoming tell-all called Lucky Me that the Downton Abbey actress "pressured" the 17-year-old Parker to lose her virginity to a 1970s boyfriend while a pair of sex therapists was staying at their Malibu home."
We're all here to help you, sweetheart," MacLaine allegedly said, according to the excerpts.
[Parker] felt like Mia Farrow surrounded by Satanists in Rosemary's Baby.
After having unprotected sex while MacLaine waited in a nearby room, the couple purportedly emerged to a waiting audience.
"Did you achieve climax?" the sex therapists asked, according to Parker.
"We both nodded vigorously. They smiled smugly. I hated them."
MacLaine says that her daughter's book is "virtually all fiction." :-| [NYDN]
