Hundreds of fan letters addressed to Taylor Swift were found, unopened, in a Tennessee dumpster last weekend.
Can anyone ascertain the whereabouts of Harry Styles last weekend? Or Conor Kennedy? or Jake Gyllenhaal? Or John Mayer? Or that one Jonas brother? Or ...
The discovery was made by Kylee Francescan when she was tossing out her garbage at a dumpster in Nashville, according to ABC Nashville station WKRN. "There were like hundreds of letters in there to Taylor Swift and I'm like, 'Oh my gosh!' I didn't know if they were stolen (or) discarded, so I threw them in a box. And I'm like, 'Somebody needs to let Taylor know,'" she, like, said. "It did bother me (because) I know how much her fans mean to her."
Like, OMG, frownie face.
The Swift fan mail, "covered with pictures, hearts and sparkles," was addressed to a P.O. Box at a strip mall. The owner of the venue says a member of Swift's team comes to get the letters every so often.
The 23-year-old's spokeswoman, Paula Erickson, told WKRN that what could have happened was "a small batch of mail that was supposed to be delivered to Taylor was accidentally put with letters headed for the recycling center."
Swift has a reputation for being good to her fans. She visited 10-year-old cancer patient Saturday in Omaha.
KELLY OSBOURNE RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL: Kelly Osbourne is out of the hospital, five days after having a seizure on the set of her show "Fashion Police," but whatever caused the episode remains a mystery.
"After a five-day hospital stay, Kelly Osbourne has returned home and has been given a clean bill of health by her doctor," her rep told E! News. "Doctors ran numerous tests and determined that this was most likely a onetime episode of which there are no conclusive results. She is looking forward to returning to 'Fashion Police' this week and getting back to business and life as usual."
In other words, she needs better doctors.
Osbourne tweeted to her fans shortly after she was admitted to the hospital, "Thank you all for your beautiful well wishes yes I did have a seizure they are just trying to figure out why?"
And she was patiently waiting for test results from her hospital bed. "My life is now like an episode of House = the impending fight against death and the look of fear in everyones faces!" she tweeted Monday.
Though she didn't receive "conclusive results," Osbourne is excited to be getting her life back to normal, according to Us Weekly."Thank you to all the Doctors Nurses Medical Staff and Employees Cedars Sinai Hospital for fixing me enough to go home," she wrote. "It's so nice to being bed!"
Osbourne's mother Sharon also addressed her daughter's health on "The Talk" Monday and said she's back to her old (mischievous) self. "She's on medication. She's fine. Nobody knows why she had it. ... Can't figure out a reason why, but she is fine and naughty."
Good to know.
BRANDI GLANVILLE WASN'T LYING: Turns out Brandi Glanville wasn't lying when she said she bedded the king of Sparta.
Gerard Butler finally figured out who Brandi Glanville is and has admitted that, yes, the two did have relations at some point, though he said it was a one-time thing, not the week she said it was, according to Us Weekly.
On "The Howard Stern Show" on Sirius XM Radio Monday, March 11, Butler admitted to sleeping with "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star, but forgot her name.
"It was a one-afternooner, but it was fun," said the "300" and "Olympus Has Fallen" actor, 43. "She is wild."
Glanville, 40, went public about the encounter during a Jan. 24 episode of "Watch What Happens Live." Glanville said they "had a little week of fun" and gave him an "11" out of 10 when rating him as a lover.
Did she say whether he wore armor? That would be my first question.
Butler found out about Glanville's comments when a paparazzo confronted him as he was walking down a street and reportedly said, "Brandi Glanville says you're great in bed."
"And you know what I said? 'Who's Brandi Glanville?'" Butler told Stern. "Because one, I didn't know her last name and two, I didn't know she was a celebrity and I didn't know she was going to (expletive) tell people about it."
Regarding how he didn't know her name, Butler said "Here's the thing. You're at a beach party, you're having fun and this girl comes along. So, what do you do?' She says 'Doesn't matter.' We hung out. We had a little bit of fun."
Once Butler figured out who she was, he called Glanville. "I said one, 'I'm not very happy you did that because there are certain things you keep a little private.' And two, 'I'm sorry I said I didn't know who you were.'"
It's probably not the first time.
Butler is now off the market. He's been dating girlfriend Madalina Ghenea, a model/actress, for 10 months.
AMANDA BYNES' AMAZING JOURNEY CONTINUES: Amanda Bynes has tweeted pictures of Amanda Bynes that don't look at all like Amanda Bynes.
Tweeting a photograph of herself Sunday, captioned only with "Wink ;)" Bynes, 26, showed off her new ...style. With long curly hair tucked under a hat that reads "trapstar," a cheek piercing and stiletto shaped fingernails, the former Nickelodeon star is almost unrecognizable while looking into makeup compact, said People.com.
She kind of looks like Nicki Minaj if Nicki Minaj exploded.
Another photo posted that same day showed Bynes wearing a captain's hat with her hair pulled back, revealing two cheek piercings on either side of her face and two heavy gold necklaces.
Hopefully she's staying out of airports.
Bynes has had a long, strange year, being involved in DUI arrests, traffic accidents, evictions, allegations of a serious pot-smoking habit, and her supposed retirement from acting to go into fashion. Hopefully, these pictures aren't indicative of that last part.
IRAN THREATENS HOLLYWOOD OVER 'ARGO': Iran will sue Hollywood over Oscar-winning film "Argo" because of the movie's alleged "unrealistic portrayal" of the country, Iranian media reported Tuesday.
How do you sue all of Hollywood? Do you get, say, the Capitol Records building, the Viper Room, the Hollywood sign, and a couple of strip clubs to be thrown in later?
Several Iranian news outlets, including the pro-reform Shargh daily, said French lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre is in Iran, talking with officials over how and where to file the lawsuit. According to Entertainment Weekly, she is also the lawyer for notorious Venezuelan-born terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, known as Carlos the Jackal.
This sounds like job for Jason Bourne.
Following the 1979 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, 52 Americans were held hostage for 444 days. Six other embassy staffers were sheltered by the Canadian ambassador. Their escape, using a fake movie as a cover story, is recounted in "Argo."
Iranian officials dismissed "Argo" as pro-CIA, anti-Iran propaganda.
Well ... yeah.
According to Entertainment Weekly, though the movie isn't showing in Iranian theaters, many Iranians have seen bootleg DVDs and have started a debate exposing a generational divide. Obviously, people who took part in the 1979 Islamic Revolution don't like the portrayals of Tehran at the time. Younger people are reportedly eager for a different view on what had happened.
The decision to sue came after a group of Iranian cultural officials and movie critics screened the film in a closed audience in a Tehran theater late Monday.
I'm guessing they didn't applaud at the end.
Members of the gathering, titled "The Hoax of Hollywood" (at least they went into it with an open mind) discussed legal aspects of filing a lawsuit, according to media reports. It remains unclear what specific charges Iran could raise and what court Tehran could turn to if the action goes ahead. A statement issued after the gathering said that "awarding an anti-Iran movie is a propaganda attack against our nation and entire humanity."
Speaking of drama ... .
The statement didn't specify how the film was unrealistic. Officials have accused "Argo" of depicting Iranians as "too violent." They said the movie didn't get into background events that led to the crisis.
This isn't the first time Iran has given the U.S. a collective thumbs-down to one of its films.
In 2009, Iran demanded an apology from visiting Hollywood actors and movie industry officials, including Annette Bening, claiming films such as "300" and "The Wrestler" were "insulting" to Iranians.
The 1991 film "Not Without My Daughter" -- based on the true story of an American women fleeing Iran with her young daughter -- angered Iranians who said it cast Iranians as dirty, boorish and cruel, obsessed with Islam and misogynist attitudes toward women.
