Demi Moore is obviously going through a tough time right now … and the fact that her problems are so public may be compounding their difficulty. The actress is said to be mortified because the demise of her marriage to Ashton Kutcher, and her subsequent hospitalization for “exhaustion” amid substance abuse rumors, have made headlines.
“Ego-wise, this is the worst thing that could happen to Demi, because she’s such a private person,” an alleged insider confided to People. “She’s embarrassed.”
Another source explained the star has been dealing with body insecurity issues for some time.
“As Demi got older, she convinced herself that she needed to stay young and skinny to remain attractive to her husband,” the source said. “She needed reassurance all the time that she was hot and sexy.”
But the first source maintains that according to the principles of Kabbalah, Demi’s longtime spiritual tradition of choice, this crisis could be an opportunity for enlightenment.
“The right intervention happened in her life,” explains the source. “From a spiritual sense, it is a gift. She has a real opportunity to grow from it. She has to take responsibility for her life.”
We wonder who this well-connected, highly enlightened anonymous insider could possibly …waaait just a minute! Madonna, is that you?
We have details on Scarlett Johansson’s alleged new beau! Well, alleged details, that is.
New York ad exec Nate Naylor was photographed strolling with a clearly smitten ScarJo last weekend in the Big Apple. The “We Bought a Zoo” star was snapped with her arm around him, as well as holding hands with him and grinning.
Though the pair have reportedly been seen out together enjoying New York clubs and restaurants, “They’re keeping it very, very low-key. He’s not one for the limelight and fame, and she likes that about him,” a source dished to Radar Online. (Indeed, he looked somewhat miserable in the paparazzi photos.)
“Nate is an avid art collector and has a lot of famous friends in the New York art world,” said the source, who says the couple visit New York hot spots and hit exclusive dinner parties. “He and Scarlett have had dinner with the fashion photographer Terry Richardson a few times. Nate’s not impressed by Scarlett’s celebrity at all, and she loves that. It’s just about two people who like each other.”
“They wanted to take things slow,” added the source, “but now they see each other four or five times a week!”
Well … one could argue that by Scarlett’s standards, that is taking it slow. Oh, snap!
Here we go again. Angelina Jolie is pregnant with Brad Pitt’s twins for a second time … if you believe an OK! report, that is.
“They were overjoyed at how quickly Angie became pregnant this time,” a source reportedly told the tabloid. “They said that it showed that this pregnancy was ‘meant to be.’ But then Angie’s latest ultrasound revealed there were two heartbeats — well, they couldn’t believe it. They were totally shocked!”
Sure, “OK!” We believe you. And we look forward to next week’s report that Jennifer Aniston is also pregnant with twins.
