FLUFF: 'We're not friends': Orlando Bloom says Kerr 'will always be family.'

Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom.

In a conversation with reporters in New York, Orlando Bloom has said that ‘of course’ he and Kerr are still on good terms.

“We’re not friends, we’re family,” the actor told a reporter.

When pressed for a reason for the break-up, Bloom mused that life doesn’t always “work out the way you want it to” and said that “life’s a mystery.”

His amicable words match the sentiment of Kerr and Bloom’s official statement released last week, which said that: “Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family.”

Last Friday E! Online reported exclusively that Kerr, 30, had split up from her movie star husband Orlando Bloom, 36.

The couple had been together for six years – and married for three years – and have a son, Flynn, 2.

A representative for Orlando Bloom is said to have confirmed the break up, saying: “In a joint statement, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced that they have been amicably separated for the past few months,” the rep said in a statement. “After six years together, they have recently decided to formalise their separation.”

Watch Beyonce jump off Auckland’s Sky Tower.

We brought you the important news last week that Beyonce jumped off Auckland’s Sky Tower and now we’ve got footage of the monumental event.

Landing at the end and being asked if she was OK, Beyoncé replies, “I’m great.” She’s basically the most perfect human being.

Meanwhile, Queen Bey has uploaded a video of herself doing the Haka backstage in New Zealand. The males doing the Haka in the video are obviously not offended by her joining in but there is controversy around this morning that Beyonce is being culturally inappropriate. What do you think?

Julianne Hough dons blackface for Halloween, really didn’t think it through.

The singer and actress best known as a dancer in the Dancing with the Stars franchise dressed as Crazy Eyes, a character from “Orange is the New Black” for a Halloween party over the weekend.

Hough, 25, wore an orange jumpsuit and Crazy Eyes’ signature hair knots. The actress attended the Casamigos Tequila Halloween party in Hollywood with friends, who joined her in dressing as the cast of the hit Netflix series. No one in the group, however, seemed to have pointed out Hough getup is offensive.

Hough has since tweeted her apology:

Her message in full: “I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created. It certainly was never my intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. I realize my costume hurt and offended people and I truly apologize.”


Meanwhile, Paris Hilton dressed as Miley Cyrus, obviously.

Marcia Wallace, who voiced the character of Edna Krabappel in The Simpsons, has died aged 70.

The American actress died in Los Angeles of complications from pneumonia.

Wallace was also known for her role as receptionist Carol Kester on the 1970s sitcom The Bob Newhart Show, and voiced elementary school teacher Edna Krabappel on the animated series The Simpsons appearing in almost 200 episdoes, and won an Emmy for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance in 1992.

The Simpsons cast members took to Twitter to express their condolences.

“Cheers to the hilarious, kind, fab Marcia Wallace, who has taken her leave of us,” Yeardley Smith said, who is the voice of Lisa Simpson. “Heaven is now a much funnier place b/c of you.”

“So sad to learn–through Twitter, first–of the passing of the wonderful Marcia Wallace. Sorely missed already,” Harry Shearer tweeted,

Earlier this month, Simpson producers announced that the show’s 25th season would lose one of its major characters in an on-screen death. A statement confirms that the character “was not Marcia’s Edna Krabappel. Marcia’s passing is unrelated and again, a terrible loss for all who had the pleasure of knowing her.”
