(Actors Dane Dehaan, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Ryan Gosling, and director Derek Cianfrance at a screening of Place Beyond The Pines)

Hey girl…I hate to break it to you (aka me), but just ’cause we never saw Ryan Gosling and his girlfriend Eva Mendes cavorting around The Ivy or conspicuously shopping in full-view of paparazzi in Soho like some couples…doesn’t mean that they were all split up and unhappy and whatnot.
In fact, according to the tabloids today, these two unfairly genetically-blessed actors have been baking up a baby bun for the past 7 months. US Weekly says a “source” has confirmed that Eva Mendes is due to deliver Ryan’s seed in just two months. Background: The couple hooked up back in 2012, when they filmed A Place Beyond The Pines together…which was a pretty terrible movie (especially given Ryan’s previous brilliant work with the same director, Derek Cianfrance, on the movie Blue Valentine) but the chemistry was there, I guess.

Well, babies are a blessing, so congrats to the lovebirds! Their baby will have incredible bone structure.

But we will always have our “Hey Girl” Ryan Gosling memes….

I’m sure Mikey will be loving this news.

actavis

Codeine sippers could be in a big trouble very soon. According to a report by TMZ, Actavis, one of the most popular manufacturers of “Promethazine with Codeine” syrup have allegedly decided to stop making the product because of its wide spread abuse.

Though, Codeine syrup has been a drug of choice in Southern rap circles since the early ’90s, however, Lean has seen a rebirth over the last five years. As you know there have been reports of big Hollywood stars like Justin Bieber using the drink. Dealers from California to New York have already said the price has doubled for an ounce of sizzurp from $40 to $80. What do you think about Actavis’ decision?

A rep for Actavis — famous for the highly-refined cough syrup — tells TMZ, “Given [recent media attention], Actavis has made the bold and unprecedented decision to cease all production and sales of its Promethazine Codeine product.”

The Actavis rep adds, “This attention has glamorized the unlawful and dangerous use of the product, which is contrary to its approved indication.”

If anyone has the right to play Drake’s “We Made It” at ignorant levels, it’s these guys. According to Forbes, WhatsApp cofounders Jan Koum and Brian Acton have sold their respective stakes in the company to Facebook for a tidy sum of $19 billion (NINETEEN BILLION DOLLARS).

The victory is sure to taste even sweeter for Koum who posted a picture of him signing the paperwork for the historic deal on the door of his old welfare office in Mountain View, California! What’s more, Acton and Koum, who emigrated to the States from Ukraine when he was just 16, were both rejected for jobs at Facebook before starting WhatsApp.

You can read Jan Koum’s truly inspiring rags-to-riches story over on Forbes and regain your faith that hard work really does pay off.
