July 9, 2014
PAMELA ANDERSON made yet another visit to her friendly, neighborhood attorney's office and filed for divorce from RICK SALOMAN last Thursday. The blushing bride announced they'd re-tied the knot last January after annulling their original marriage after six, short months in March of 2008. If you're keeping track at home, the busty "Baywatch" beauty was also married to TOMMY LEE from 1995-1998 and KID ROCK from 2006-2007. (Lee)
Rick Salomon timeline:
--1995, married voice actress ELIZABETH DAILY; they had two daughters before divorcing in 2000.
--2002, married actress SHANNEN DOHERTY; the marriage was annulled after nine months.
--2003, sex tape with then-girlfriend PARIS HILTON was leaked onto the Internet; Salomon sued, then released the tape himself.
--2007, married actress PAMELA ANDERSON during a break between the 7 and 10 pm shows of "Hans Klok's The Beauty of Magic" at Planet Hollywood resort, where Anderson was starring as a magician's assistant. They separated less than ten weeks later, but finally divorced in March of the next year.
--2014, remarried Pamela Anderson, then filed for divorce again just two days after he won $2.8 million in the World Series of Poker "Big One for One Drop" on Jul 01.
I'm a Poll Man:
Despite some fumbles during her current book tour, HILLARY CLINTON is still pulling some solid poll numbers. A new Quinnipiac University poll gives her a big 58-to-11-percent lead over her next closest hypothetical opponent for the Democratic nomination, MA Sen. ELIZABETH WARREN.
And in possible general election scenarios, Madame Hillary has 7-to-9-point leads over a host of GOP candidates, including KY GOP Sen. RAND PAUL, who happens to top out in the same poll as the current GOP favorite. However, 20-percent of Republican voters remain undecided. (Pacelli)
Does one of the most envied women on earth have a jealous streak? Sources tell MIKE WALKER of the National Enquirer that PRINCES WILLIAM and HARRY wanted to go see BRITNEY SPEARS perform live during an upcoming trip to Las Vegas, but the DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE put the kibosh on the idea immediately. The future king has a history with the pop tart --they emailed several years ago and she claims he stood her up! (Lee)
ELLEN DeGENERES is launching her own lifestyle brand. The daytime talk show host is partnering with designer CHRIS BURCH of C. Wonder to produce a fashion line, along with pet and home décor items. She's calling it simply, "E.D." Ellen told Women's Wear Daily that one reason why she's jumping into the fashion game is that her wife, actress PORTIA DE ROSSI, gets more red carpet attention for her dresses than she does for her suits:
"We go to a red carpet and Portia is pulled aside for the fashion shot and they're asking me to step aside. A suit is fashion. Men go to events in suits and they look great and there are really cool designs. But for whatever reason suits just aren't as appreciated as dresses at red-carpet events. Ellen's E.D. line hits stores in the fall. (Bartha)
Grace notes from Vinny Marino:
SIMON COLLINS, son of former GENESIS singer and drummer PHIL COLLINS was arrested over the weekend. NME.com says 37-year-old Simon was charged with possession and supply of illegal narcotics. Simon was taken into custody in Wiltshire, England, and then released on bail. He has a court date in August. Simon is also a drummer, and his band, DIMENSIONAUT, released its debut album last year. Simon's mother is Phil's first wife, ANDREA BERTORELLI. They were married from 1975 to 1980, so she's the target of the various "I hate you" songs on Phil's debut solo album, "Face Value." That includes "In The Air Tonight." (Marino)
