Beauty Celebrity Star Style The Scoop

Zendaya and Odell Beckham Jr. not an item

Published by:

odell-beckham-jr-zendaya

Just slow down everybody! Just because you are pictured with someone on the red carpet does not mean that you are…dating! Yes, they showed up to the Grammys afterparty together arm-in-arm. Yes, they are friends, but that doesn’t mean he’s earned “boyfriend” status just yet. The two first sparked rumors that they were dating after posing for a few couple-ish pics following the awards show on Feb. 15.

During an interview with New York’s 92.3 AMP Radio on Thursday, the 19-year-old actress revealed that her post-Grammys photo op with the New York Giants star “wasn’t really a date.” Zendaya said the two “went to some events together” because they’re “friends,” but explained that they “were with a group.”

And if Odell, 23, wants to take things any further, he’s going to have to clear it with her father first. The former Disney Channel star joked that “just because you’re in the NFL, you killin’ stuff, that doesn’t mean you get to skip past pops.”

It’s too bad because the two make a super cute couple! We’ll just have to wait and see what happens…Go Zendaya!

America’s Next Top Model, the reality competition series started by supermodel Tyra Banks is set to return to television.

According to Variety, VH1 will be reviving the series (which ended last year after 22 cycles) for 14 episodes in order to “reinvent” the franchise for “a new generation of viewers.” The show’s return will premiere in different packaging, however:

The new season WILL NOT feature Tyra Banks as host (she’ll still stay on as executive producer). The show will also feature a completely new panel of judges. Twiggy, Nigel Barker, Janice Dickinson, et al. are not returning.

Still, we’re happy to see that it will be back on TV.

Finally, on a personal note, my first job out of college was as a curatorial assistant in the New York office of The Paley Center for Media (then called The Museum of Television and Radio), so to be able to return to Paley as an honored creator, writer and star of an Amy Poehler-produced series is beyond any dream I would have been bold enough to have formed in my twenties. I am so thrilled.”

The event, which focuses on individuals, television programs and movies of 2015 that celebrate black culture, honored Diahann Carroll with the Hollywood Legacy Award.

Judge Orders Camille Cosby to Give Deposition

Judge Orders Camille Cosby to Give Deposition, Rejecting Her Latest Effort to Delay Testimony in Defamation Case Against Husband
 Judge Orders Camille Cosby to Give Deposition, Rejecting Her Latest Effort to Delay Testimony in Defamation Case Against Husband

Rejecting Camille Cosby’s latest effort to delay, a federal judge ruled Friday that she must testify Monday in a defamation lawsuit filed against her husband Bill Cosby by seven women who claim they were victims of his alleged assaults.

The testimony Monday will take place outside of court, reports WWLP.

In a document filed Friday in U.S. District Court, Mrs. Cosby’s lawyers had sought to postpone her deposition, writing, “Mrs. Cosby renews her motion for a protective order staying her deposition until the parties and the purported spokespeople have been deposed, and limiting the scope of Mrs. Cosby’s deposition to discoverable topics that are not addressed by these deponents.”

The request came a week after U.S. District Judge Mark Mastroianna ruled Feb. 11 that Mrs. Cosby must answer at least some questions in a deposition about the case, rejecting the argument by Mrs. Cosby’s legal team that marital privilege protects her.

The defamation suit was first brought by Andrea Constand and then joined by the others, all of whom say Cosby, 78, drugged and/or sexually assaulted them.

Cosby has separately been charged with allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Constand in January 2004 at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, home. More recently, Cosby filed a breach of contract lawsuit Feb. 1 against Constand and her mother, claiming they violated a confidentiality agreement negotiated in 2006.

Cosby’s breach of contract suit also names Constand’s attorneys and the National Enquirer for reporting on claims by Constand and others “despite its clear contractual obligations to not publish any stories relating to certain allegations against Mr. Cosby.”

Constand’s settlement and confidentiality agreement were reached after Constand had sued Enquirer-publisher American Media, Inc., and Cosby for defamation in 2005.

The criminal case against Cosby is based in part on revelations shared by Constand when she spoke to the Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, district attorney’s office last summer about the alleged 2004 incident. Although no criminal charges were filed when Constand initially raised her allegations, she later was joined by a chorus of more than 50 women who allege they, too, were victims of the entertainer, who personally or through his attorneys has denied each allegation.
