Congratulations US Weekly


I don't know who kicked over US Weekly's sand castle, but they have joined the world of real reporters and not butt kissing sycophants for at least a week anyway. They actually trashed a celebrity on their cover this week. A celebrity with a publicist who presumably has more clients. To say I am shocked would be an understatement. I doubt it will last, but for one week US Weekly did throw out their version of snark.

As you can see by the photo, their wrath was directed at Jennifer Love Hewitt. Using a source from the set of the show Ghost Whisperer, US, actually gets some juice not first processed and extracted by Jennifer's people. Oh, and the great thing about this source? It is actually named. There is someone actually credited with the quotes. They won't ever get a job on another television show and US doesn't pay for stories but they did get to see their name in print. Hope that gets you through the recession.

The story is about how Jennifer is to blame for the demise of the relationship she had with Ross McCall. Well, yeah, I think I said that before. She has never been in a relationship that has lasted because she is immature and people get tired of the fact that she needs her mom every five seconds or live with her or be her pseudo mom when mom isn't there.

The source, who is the former costume designer for the show called Jennifer immature and needy. Check, we got that already.

She also said,

"Jennifer would call McCall up and go, 'Can you come and sit with me? I'm cold,'" she said. "She would drag him on the set and then pout and they'd fight. Mainly, it was her needing something from him: 'Can you say you love me?'"

Apparently the fact that Jennifer had a full-time job was also part of the problem. "It was clear they were not on the same level. It was hard for him."

Jennifer was so insecure about her body that, "She would try on clothes over clothes. She would not have lights on or mirrors in the dressing room. It's sad because she had a beautiful body."

Well, I'm guessing living with her was a thrill a minute, and the sex, well, it is a wonder they ever had it because she probably wanted to keep her clothes on the entire time. Now, of course, to be fair, we have not heard from Ross, and he might have loved every second of the relationship. According to US, Ross, said they are working it out and both wearing their rings. I didn't know guys wore engagement rings, but maybe in Jennifer's world you do. Good luck, and congratulations to US for doing some real reporting and getting off your knees.

Well, I actually like Jennifer Love Hewitt. She seems like a sweet, normal girl who has insecurities and issues just like everyone else. The only difference is, her problems are out there for the world to dissect and discuss.

Mooshki said...

I KNEW IT!!! I KNEW the costume designer had it in for J.Love! There was just no other rational explanation for some of the things she wore on the show. :)

AnonMom said...

She's bugged me ever since Kids, Incorporated. And I can't explain why.

You crack me up, Mooshki.
I am wondering, however, what made the costume girl talk? Money? Does she dislike JLove?

Ror said...

A "needy" woman?!?

Nahhhhhhhhh

how rare

ambernyc said...

Hell, I'm just thrilled to see someone other than Aniston or some skank/douche from The Hills on the cover.

I'm from Texas originally, not far from Waco where J. Love herself is from. My mother worked with one of her aunts and met J. Love herself at gathering at said aunt's house, and said she was really sweet but totally awkward and a bit shy- you could tell she had MAJOR insecurity issues.

I heard her former (years ago) boy band boyfriend on Howard Stern talk about dating her, and he said that J Love got him and another guy an Infinity ring from Cartier. Maybe that's the ring the current ex is talking about.

ms snarky said...

also from the interview (a guy from a band called LFO, he was actually pretty nice about her), said she cheated, was kind of needy, and that she gets those rings for every boyfriend, apparently. Cause they're special and she wants to marry them and be with them forever.

Sylvia said...

You know she looks like a nice person from other celebrities but to be that clingy is a no-no. Being like that ruins relationships and acting like a baby doesn't help either.

Molly said...

enty, you don't think this 'her insecurities' came from her publicist? i think you're wrong. she's insecure because the papers said mean things about her body, which makes her a victim. this screams pr, to me.

slappywhyte said...

if she would finally pose topless or do a topless scene in a movie, i bet her life would be so much happier ... i know mine would

Bad Fish said...

Actually we HAVE heard from Ross, and he says they are still together.

jax said...

i don't know why everyone hates her. needy? so what i'm not dating her. insecure? sure but she's not my friend, i don't have to hear it.

omigod i think my sickness dulled my hatred.

dreadpiratecuervo said...

She was on Kids Inc? I only remember Fergie, Martika & Ryan Lambert & their penchant for red & purple costumes.

CityGirl said...

Doesn't this answer a Lainey blind about them changing the size 8 tags in her clothes to a size 2 or something like that?

Molly said...

citygirl, i think that was the blind using the word 'starlet', which ruled jlh out.

audieh_1 said...

I bet that costume designer and Mr. ex fiance had something going on the side. The whole interview sounds like high school stuff.

Mooshki said...

Oh dear, Jax, I didn't know you were that sick! ;)

bionic bunny! said...

lol @ both jax and mooshki!
i've always like her for some reason, but then i don't know what kids inc. is (i don't think)!
i do remember a movie where the kids locked the parents in the basement, and she looked a bit mature for her age... i'd be insecure if people were always talking about my body (oh, wait), too.
i kinda hope they work it out, hopeless romantic that i am!
okay, i've had pain meds, so i guess i'll line up behind jax!

kids inc was a mickey mouse club type variety show from the 80's. the cast would sing and dance to the popular music from that time.
