But What Does He Smell Like? [Gossip Roundup]


So, he might be hot, but Robert Pattison smells. “‘He stinks. I mean, it’s awful. He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy,’ dishes someone who works in very close quarters with Pattz.” [E! Online] (Side note: Do you think that is why this happened?)

Maybe the New Moon peeps should consider recruiting 50. We hear he’s available. “Initially, the L.A. Times‘ Patrick Goldstein was skeptical of our theory that blog outrage last week prompted Sylvester Stallone to ‘un-cast’ 50 Cent in his upcoming ensemble movie The Expendables. Then he spoke with Expendables producer Avi Lerner!” [Vulture]

Speaking of 50, Barbara Walters is freaking 79. And finally retiring. “‘Barbara’s thought long and hard over whether she wants to extend her contract when it expires with ABC this summer. It’s left her with many sleepless nights. ABC sees her as one of its marquee female stars and would like to see her continue, but Barbara’s decided she’s ‘done it all — many times over’ and wants some time for herself.'” [Perez]

OK, we know this is weird, but imagine The View with Rachel Maddow in her place. We’d DVR that. “Rachel Maddow took her mixology mastery, her wicked sense of humor and someone else’s jigger to Jimmy Fallon’s last night to make a Bijou and perfume herself with gin.” [Jezebel]

And speaking of alcohol, we hope this awkward talk show moment involved some… “Sure, Lively was joking about a polygamist marriage between her, Letterman, and Julia Roberts, but the electricity between the Gossip Girl star and Letterman was every bit as strong as that time one year ago when she said he was in the same league as Leonardo DiCaprio, and he kissed her hand.” [Gawker]
