Just days ago, nobody knew the name Kelleth Cuthbert. Now everyone recognizes her as the “Fiji Water Girl”, who photobombed just about every celebrity who walked the red carpet at the “Golden Globes”. Kelleth gave Fiji the equivalent of $12 million in free advertising.  And she wasn’t just lucky.  She knew what she was doing. She says, “It’s all strategic.  You’ve got to angle.”

 

KELLY RIPA admits she has a body like Peter Pan, and she’s never been, “a va-va-voom” woman.” But she is an exercise nut.  She says, “[My cardiologist] said to make sure your heart beats out of your chest every day.”

 

ANNE HATHAWAY’s key to dealing with stress is to write everything down, DON’T read it, and then burn it. She says, “All of this energy, this angst, this rage . . . everything is smoke.”

CARLY PEARCE and MICHAEL RAY went from dating to engaged in about six months. But when she was asked what made Michael the one for her. “Our grandfathers both played such key roles into our lives.  The Pearce name is my grandfather . . . the red feather [tattoo] on my arm and my logo, all of that.  Amos is [Michael’s] grandfather’s name that he named his record after.” The grandfather influence runs pretty deep.  She says she and Michael are both “very old souls” who have similar, old school values. There’s more to their connection, of course.  She brought up the old saying about “find the person that makes you better.”  She’s very independent and nobody had ever made her feel that way until Michael. “I was always like very against that statement ’cause I never understood what that meant.  And I get it now.”

 

KANE BROWN posted photos of his tricked-out truck. He says that it may have cost more than his wedding.  “A 19-and-a-half-inch lift.  It’s all gold underneath.  The wheels are gold with a black lip around.  It’s on 42-inch tires, 28-inch wheels.  I’ve got white and orange LED lights, [and] it lowers to eight inches.”

28 year old Margot Robbie has some big, hot pink shoes to fill. Warner Bros.

The movie was originally slated to follow Barbie on a journey of self-discovery as she learns to embrace her imperfections.

On “Ellen” yesterday, Tom Hanks said he was DENIED BEER at the Stagecoach Festival. He’d gone up to the beer stand, but they wouldn’t serve him . . . because he didn’t have a bracelet proving that he was allowed to drink. They told him he had to go have his I.D. verified, get a…
