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….

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.

After thousands of submissions, Juicy J has finally chosen his grand prize winner for the $50,000 scholarship to their school. And guess what? The winner didn’t twerk ONCE! Apparently, she was one of the few who actually read all of the rules and submitted the right video. After Uncle Juice saw her story, he related to her struggle and awarded Zaire Holmes the fifty racks so she could attend the State College of Florida and pursue her Biology major and dream of being a doctor.
Moral of the story: READ AND PAY ATTENTION. It serves a better purpose than following what people say. Bandz didn’t make this girl dance.
Watch Juicy J award her the prize after the jump…

After Alfonso Ribeira broke the sad news last week, The Fresh Prince himself, Will Smith, pays tribute to his former co-star James Avery, who tragically passed away aged 65. Smith wrote a brief yet beautiful message on his official Facebook page last night accompanied by the above picture, which was “the last time we were together.” R.I.P. James Avery. You will be missed.
Some of my greatest lessons in Acting, Living and being a respectable human being came through James Avery. Every young man needs an Uncle Phil. Rest in Peace.
