Heidi Montag Blames Jennifer Aniston for Premiere No-Show
Heidi Montag was suspiciously absent from Tuesday’s New York premiere of her debut film Just Go With It. Now Montag says co-star Jennifer Anniston had her banned from the premiere. Montag has a cameo in the film and told Us Weekly magazine, "I'm so upset. I was so excited! This is the first movie I've ever been in and I can't walk the red carpet because Jennifer Aniston decided I was 'too polarizing.'” Montag said she had designed a dress for the big event and had even promised producers not to do any events before the premiere. Representatives for Aniston say the actress has no issues with the reality television star and that Montag’s claim is "absolutely false." [US Mag]
Kelsey Grammer Gets His Divorce
Sitcom actor Kelsey Grammer is finally free to marry his new girlfriend. The 55-year-old has been granted a quickie divorce from Camille Grammer. The couple had been married 13 years and announced their separation in July after Kelsey was seen in the arms of another woman. The marriage breakdown came as a surprise to Camille and it played out in a somewhat ugly manner on her reality television show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Camille was reluctant to proceed with a speedy divorce, fearing she’d not receive a fair property and financial settlement. Those issues have been resolved and Kelsey is now free to marry 29-year-old Kayte Walsh later this month. [TMZ]
