Fluff: Sass & Bide to step down from Sass & Bide.

Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke have resigned as directors of their fashion label Sass & Bide, following Myer’s recent acquisition of 35% of the label (Myer took stock of 65% in 2011).

The duo, who began with skinny jeans 14 years ago built the empire to turnover annual sales of more than $50 million, will now focus their creative energies on the brand, maintaining their executive roles, as well as sitting on an advisory board.

Heidi Middleton will remain creative director and Sarah-Jane Clarke will retain her position as brand director.

According to Fairfax media, “Crucially for Myer as it looks to build on sass & bide’s success in the fashion world as well as an expansion to the label’s range into areas such as lingerie, both co-founders will still spearhead the business’ style direction.

“Since [Myer’s] first investment, sass & bide has delivered a consistently strong performance for its investors, growing sales by 45 per cent and profit by 112 per cent.

Denise Richards is giving up custody of Sheen’s twins.

Denise Richards has been providing Charlie Sheen’s twin boys with Brooke Mueller with a stable and loving environment, while their parents seek help for drug and alcohol addiction, but has revealed she can longer cope with their increasingly disturbing and violent behaviour.

RadarOnline.com has obtained a heartbreaking letter penned by Richards herself informing the US authorities that she no longer feels capable of caring for the boys in her home.

“I have always cared for them as if they were my own children. Unfortunately, I have seen them get worse with increased contact with their mom and I am unable to obtain for them proper assessments and professional help.”

“With a heavy heart,” Richards lays out the painful story of how the boys came to find refuge with her and daughters Sam, Lola, and Eloise, and how recent contact with their mother, Mueller, has transformed them from “kind and loving” young boys to “zombie-like” boys who exhibit “extreme violent mood swings” and “violent behavior.”

According to Richards, her “daughters have been strangled, kicked in the head and stomach, scratched, bit, slapped, punched in the face and head, and spit on” by the boys, as have the family dogs. One night, she claims, they even broke into their baby sister ‘s room and relieved themselves in her tub, flinging their feces all over her bathroom. Richards has battled to have the boys evaluated for such unimaginable acts, but says that she has been stymied at every turn by Mueller.

“With no authority to make decisions on their behalf, I feel my hands are tied in providing them the proper help, support, and care that I feel as a parent that they need,” she writes.

‘I have not abandoned daughter Suri,’ says Tom Cruise.

Tom Cruise’s relationship with his daughter Suri has come under scrutiny since the now six-year-old was born and now Cruise has lashed out at the press.

According to two US magazines, Cruise has been ‘abandoning’ his daughter Suri since his divorce from Katie Holmes in 2012.

Cruise has lashed out and launched a $50 million defamation lawsuit against “Life & Style” and “In Touch” magazines for publishing stories about his lack of parenting skills.

Cruise claims to be ‘extremely close’ to his daughter Suri and says he is still a ‘constant presence’ in her life.

‘I have in no way cut Suri out of my life – whether physically, emotionally, financially or otherwise’ he said.

Melissa McCarthy responds to ‘Jacketgate’.

What better place to laugh off the trivialisation of Hollywood than on the Ellen show?

In true hilarious fashion, Melissa McCarthy has discussed the ‘Jacketgate’ incident with Ellen, stating that she’s ‘like a three hundred-year-old’ when it comes keeping up with media rounds. She was genuinely astonished she heard it was being discussed on CNN.

For those of you a bit slow on the uptake, there was major uproar after Melissa McCarthy was photographed on the front of Elle magazine in an over-sized coat. Apparently, people were distraught over the minimal amount of skin the actress was presumable ‘allowed’ to show.

McCarthy has hit back, herself, stating that not only did she CHOOSE the coat, she actually LOVED it. Living in L.A. she doesn’t get the chance to wear coats often and what better place to wear a coat than on millions of covers of Elle magazine?
