Dysfunction, But Make It Fashion: Lady Gaga Is Dressed To Kill In Deliciously Decadent “House Of Gucci” Trailer

Arrivederci!

The Gucci family isn’t too happy with Ridley Scott’s newly released film “House of Gucci” and they’re shedding “extremely insulted” luxury label tears. Meanwhile, the movie’s defiant director is clapping back.

The movie stars Lady Gaga as the infamous Patrizia Reggiani, an Italian socialite who marries the prestigious fashion house by way of Maurizio Gucci, the luxury brand’s former heir, portrayed by Adam Driver.  “House of Gucci” follows Patrizia’s murder plot to kill her husband, a crime she ultimately served 29-years in prison for.

 

In a statement released to Italian news agency ANSA, the Gucci family said that the film’s production, “did not bother to consult their heirs before describing Aldo Gucci — President of the company for 30 years [played by Al Pacino in the film] — and the members of the Gucci family as thugs, ignorant and insensitive to the world around them,” the statement said according to Variety.

The family slammed the film’s director Ridley Scott for making the characters out to be, well, villains while setting “a tone and an attitude to the protagonists of the well-known events that never belonged to them.” 

“This is extremely painful from a human point of view and an insult to the legacy on which the brand is built today,” they added.

Yikes!

Following Gucci’s disapproval of the film, Scott barked back at the descendants of the storied Italian heritage house stating that he found their comments “alarmingly insulting” and that they should feel “lucky” to have a movie made about their complicated family history.

 

“I tried to be as respectful as possible by being as factual as possible, and as factual as we can possibly imagine,” the director said during a Q&A screening of the film,” Insider noted. “Time and space sometimes has to jump because of the nature of the length of the film. But the people that were writing from the family to us at the onset were alarmingly insulting,” he continued. “Saying that Al Pacino did not represent physically Aldo Gucci in any shape or form. And yet, frankly, how could they be better represented than by Al Pacino? Excuse me! You probably have the best actors in the world, you should be so f****g lucky.”

Bloop!

Prior to the release of “House of Gucci,” Patrizia Gucci, the daughter of Aldo Gucci, accused Scott of trying to steal “the identity of a family to make a profit.” To be fair, Scott has made quite the penny off the film thus far.

“House of Gucci” saw a ton of success at the box office following its debut on Nov. 24. The film raked in $14.2 million over Thanksgiving weekend and another “$21.8 million across five days,” AP News reported.

 

Seems like Patrizia is looking for Scott to cut the check…not that they really need it, right?

Saint West, 6, Shows Off His Slam Dunk Skills In Basketball Photo Shared By Kanye

Future basketball star! Saint West flashed a huge smile as he played some ball in a pair of Yeezy sneakers.

Kanye West, 44, shared the cutest photo of his 6-year-old son Saint. The little boy was showing off his slam dunk skills on an outdoor basketball court in the snap, posted to Instagram by the Yeezy designer on Friday, Jan. 21. Saint was smiling as he hung off the hoop with just one hand, clearly ecstatic about about playing the game!

The 6-year-old channeled his dad’s streetwear inspired look with his outfit, that included a pair of black Adidas shorts and a fleece sweatshirt. He added a pair of gray-and-black Yeezy sneakers, along with black socks. It’s unclear who was behind Saint, however, a man seemingly playing with him appeared to be wearing a pair of Yeezy boost sneakers along with black sweats.

The photo garnered over 1.2 million likes in just a few hours, with plenty of fans jumping in on the comments. “Like Mike, like Ye,” one wrote, while another added, “saint a baller fasho.”

It’s no surprise to see Kanye encouraging Saint to play basketball, which is known to be one of the Chicago native’s favorite sports. Ye is a massive fan of the Los Angeles Lakers, and regularly attends games. He’s also developing a high school sports team for his Donda Academy School. Beyond that, Ye designs a line of basketball shoes with Adidas for his Yeezy brand.

The Watch The Throne rapper was last spotted out with his son Saint, as well as daughter North, 8, and youngest Psalm, 2, on  Saturday, Jan. 8 in Los Angeles. The doting dad reportedly had his kids chauffeured to a hotel where they played classic board games (“Guess Who” and “Connect 4” were on the docket). Kanye repped his Yeezy brand by rocking a shiny black puffer from his buzzy and sold-out GAP collaboration.

Kanye has had a busy last few weeks: back in December, he begged ex Kim Kardashian, 41, to “run right back to me” during his Larry Hoover benefit concert. The SKIMS founder made a bold move by filing to become “legally single” a day later, and spending time with new beau Pete Davidson, 28. Kanye has made an effort to move on in recent weeks, publicly documenting his dating adventures with Julia Fox, 31, after meeting her on New Years’ Eve.

Crystal King-Minkoff and Dr. Tiffany Moon Unfollow Jennie Nguyen Amid Racism Scandal as Producers Hunt for Diversity Ahead of RHOSLC Season 3

Crystal Kung-Minkoff and Dr. Tiffany Moon have unfollowed Jennie Nguyen amid the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member’s racism scandal.

After Jennie was exposed for sharing a number of racist and offensive posts on Facebook, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and Real Housewives of Dallas alum stopped following their fellow Asian-American, who has since apologized for her hurtful messages, saying she is trying “to learn about perspectives different from my own.”

News of Crystal and Tiffany’s Instagram activity was shared by Housewives Addicted on Instagram.

RHOBH Crystal Kung-Minkoff and RHOD Dr. Tiffany Moon Unfollow RHOSLC Jennie Nguyen Amid Racism Drama

As RHOSLC fans may have seen, Jennie posted her offensive Facebook posts in 2020. Many of her disturbing messages targeted the Black community by suggesting George Floyd died of an overdose, rather than police brutality, and saying that if people followed “the officers orders, [they wouldn’t] get shot.”

Jennie also suggested the COVID-19 vaccine couldn’t possibly be effective, considering there’s no vaccine for influenza.

Although Bravo has yet to officially cut ties with Jennie, it seems it is only a matter of time. And as filming continues on season three, producers are said to be on the hunt for new cast members to potentially replace her and Mary Cosby, who seemingly sealed her fate with the series when she failed to show up to the season two reunion, thus violating her agreement with the network.

In a series of reports shared by Deux Moi and reposted by Bravo Breaking News on Instagram, the latest RHOSLC casting news was shared.

“My boss was just contacted on Instagram by the casting director of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City and they said they are still casting and looking for diverse women!” a tipster shared with the outlet.

Then, in another message shared by Deux Moi, a Real Housewives page was seen confirming that they are “still looking for some additional women” to add to the cast for season three and offering an email address to contact if interested.

RHOSLC Season 3 Casting Update

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season two is currently airing on Sunday nights at 9/8c on Bravo.
