GRACE UNDER PRESSURE
Canada's own Seth Rogen thinks that American news anchor Nancy Grace's anti-marijuana stance is a buzzkill. The Pineapple Express star and noted weed advocate came out swinging in response to the HLN host's comments this week in connection to a recent news story about Richard Kirk, a Denver man who allegedly shot and killed his wife after ingesting marijuana. On Wednesday, Grace tweeted, "Daddy allegedly snacks on marijuana and kills his wife! Is #PotToBlame." Grace also tweeted, "If pot makes you mellow and laid back, why does this guy allegedly turn berserk and gun down his wife." Shortly after, Rogen issued his blunt Twitter response: "You are a f--ng dumbass." A few hours later, Grace countered with the tweet, "hi seth! Thx for watching!"

Earlier this week, the 81-year-old actress released an open letter in which she condemned the unkind comments levied at her by Donald Trump and other Twitter users during the Academy Awards broadcast on March 2. "It really did throw me into a tailspin and it hit me hard," said Novak, best known for her role in the 1958 film Vertigo. "For days, I didn't leave the house and it got to me like it gets kids and teenagers who are attacked." Novak also said, "I will no longer hold myself back from speaking out against bullies."

Kate Middleton has suggested her husband, Prince William, try a new method of concealing his ever-expanding bald spot: A wig made of alpaca wool. The Duchess of Cambridge jokingly made the comment to her heir-to-the-throne spouse while the pair toured the Sydney Royal Easter Show in Australia earlier this week. According to show exhibitor Lynn Crejan, "The prince was interested in the alpaca, and as I showed it to them, the princess said he should put it on his head. She said, 'You need it more than me' and pointed to his head, and he laughed."
Gwyneth Paltrow has consciously uncoupled with the man running her GOOP empire. British-born CEO Seb Bishop abruptly resigned from GOOP last week after three years running the Paltrow-owned website. An unnamed source told The New York Post's Page Six that Bishop left in response to the actress's now-famous "conscious uncoupling" announcement last month announcing Paltrow's split with husband Chris Martin. The source claims Paltrow and Bishop "disagreed on the direction of GOOP, partly that she used the website as vehicle for her personal life."
