Thanksgiving, Family, and Flops

Need a change from your turkey leftovers from Thanksgiving? Sink your teeth in some juicy celebrity gossip!


For non-celebrities, Thanksgiving is about good food and spending time with our loved ones, and the same applies for the rich and famous – even if it’s in a non-traditional way. For instance, little Suri Cruise spent this American holiday overseas in London with her father, Tom Cruise, who is currently in the UK shooting a movie. New mama Vanessa Minnillo, who bragged about fixing Paula Deen pumpkin bars for the big meal, enjoyed her first Thanksgiving with two-and-a-half-month-old  Camden by exercising her right as a mother to dress her child in crazy holiday clothes (Camden strutted his feathers as an adorable turkey!)

Thanksgiving was no doubt bittersweet for the family of Larry Hagman, star of the original 1980’s drama “Dallas” as well as the 2012 reboot of the series on TNT. The television legend passed away on Friday afternoon in a Dallas hospital, surrounded by family and friends. Hagman had been fighting throat cancer since June 2011 and passed from complications from the disease. Larry Hagman was 81. Rest in Peace, J.R. Ewing, and enjoy that big oil field in the sky!

The holiday season will be very different this year for another Hollywood family. Mayim Bialik, “The Big Bang Theory” actress and former “Blossom” star, announced a split from her husband of nine years, Michael Stone. Bialick, a staunch supporter of attachment parenting, told omg! that her parenting choices had nothing to do with the split. The couple will continue to co-parent their children, Miles, 7, and Fred, 4.


Fans of bad TV (or TV so bad it’s good) might have tuned in for an end-of-Thanksgiving treat on Sunday as Lifetime premiered the made-for-TV movie about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s tumultuous love affair.  The highly hyped movie, staring Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler, was supposed to signal a comeback for the troubled starlet, but the movie failed to impress viewers or critics.  Although Lindsay’s family said they “loved” the performance, viewers took to Twitter to rip apart the actresses’ performance.  Lindsay is reportedly “devastated” by the critical response – a source close to the actress told the Huffington Post that Lindsay was “used to all the negative press around her personal life, but this is the first time she has experienced it about her work.”  Umm, Herbie: Fully Loaded, anyone?
