Charlie Sheen Starts 2015 With a Twitter Rant

Charlie Sheen didn’t waste any time making headlines this year. The actor, who often takes to Twitter to blow off steam, posted a tweet this morning telling Kim Kardashian to “go f yourself” after she allegedly refused a 6-year-old girl’s request for an autograph. Although the tweet has since been deleted (and was apparently posted accidentally), Sheen stood by his words telling TMZ that Kim has “zero gratitude, zero awareness, zero talent” and calling her “a pox on the face of entertainment.” However, even the hottest tempers have a way of cooling, and earlier this afternoon Sheen took to Twitter one last time with an apology to Kim saying, “my extreme bad...wrote some trash you didn’t deserve. Ever. I’m an idiot as often as I’m a genius.” Genius may be a bit of a strong word, but at least he seemed sincere.


Teresa Giudice Begins Prison Sentence

Teresa Giudice reported to prison early Monday morning to begin serving her 15-month sentence for tax fraud.

The reality star was driven to the Danbury, Connecticut prison that was the inspiration for Orange is the New Black by her attorney James J. Leonard Jr. She left her New Jersey home around midnight and checked in shortly before 2am even though she did not have to be there until 3am.

Leonard told ABC News, “I think she was anxious to get in, get this thing started, get it behind her, and get back to her family. Her four girls are her primary focus.” He said Giudice had been preparing for prison by corresponding with recently released prisoners.

The reality star’s husband Joe will begin serving his 41-month sentence once she is released. The judge allowed them to serve their sentences one at a time so one parent was home to take care of the couple’s four daughters.

Kourtney Kardashian revealed on the latest episode of Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons that she is expecting a baby boy. This will be the third child with her boyfriend Scott Disick. The parents are already parents to son Mason, 5, and daughter Penelope, 2.

The reveal of the baby’s gender was shown in a home video that was shot by Kim Kardashain. Kourtney explained to viewers that Mason had two sticks and one had a blue star on it and another a red one. The home video shows Mason walking into the room with the stick that had the blue star on it.

Mariah Carey Struggles During Live Performance at Rockefeller Center

Mariah Carey’s reputation as being a diva sure seems to be living up to its hype this holiday season. The “All I Want For Christmas Is You” singer was set to pre-tape her performance on Tuesday night for the 82nd annual Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting, but instead left her fans and an NBC production team waiting for her in the rain. After three hours of waiting, her fans were sent home as it was clear the singer was going to be a no show. When Carey finally did show up to perform, the network declined and she was told to leave as well.

After missing her performance the singer tweeted, “Last night's situation was beyond my control. I apologize to all that showed up, you know that I would never want to disappoint you.” Reports began to surface the next day that the reason the singer never showed up was because she was too busy meeting with lawyers discussing her divorce from Nick Cannon. Not wanting to disappoint her fans, NBC agreed to let the singer perform her hit Christmas song but only if she did it live on Wednesday night.
