The daughter of one of the most influential musician’s in rock history is reportedly engaged. Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole singer Courtney Love, might just be engaged to little known rocker Isaiah Silva. While the couple haven’t actually come right out with the public announcement, there have been reports that they changed their relationship status on Facebook to “engaged” and made a few comments insinuating this was no mistake.
Even though the cat may be out of the bag, don’t expect the pair to ‘fess up anytime soon. Francis is notoriously private and rarely speaks to the press regarding anything personal about her life. With all of the attention she gets from being the daughter of a legend, we can’t say we blame her. In the past week, she and her beau’s Facebook aliases have been revealed (though not on Celebstalk, we will not be publishing that information out of respect for Cobain and Silva’s privacy) as well as private information from their pages to the point where the previously inconspicuous accounts have since been deleted.
One thing that has been said and we CAN say it’s true is that many of Kurt’s fans have noticed a striking resemblance between the late rocker and Silva. Isaiah is also a singer for the little known band The Rambles. While this may be another similarity in part, the band has a much different sound than Nirvana. Don’t expect them to stay little known for long, though. According to reports, interest in the band and Isaiah have jumped up over 500% in the past 24 hours. If you want to hear some of the bands music, they have posts on YouTube.
Frances is perhaps the most obsessed about rock offspring since Lisa Marie Presley. Recently turning 18, the young artist/model has been in the media nonstop lately. Whether it’s to talk about her relationship, her art, her new home or her famous pops, the girl just can’t get any privacy!
So what do you think Celebstalkers? Do you think the pair is engaged? Do you think it’s all a big misunderstanding taken apart by the media? Or do you, like us, simply wish the couple the best and feel bad that they have no privacy from nosy media and pushy celebrity blogs? (hmmm…this is awkward…) Leave a comment and tell us!
For years, we’ve known Jon Bon Jovi as one of the many musical mougs from New Jersey who made it big. While you might assume he’s busy in the studio working on songs for his newest record (which you’d assume correctly…the rockers next CD will be hitting shelves in 2013 followed by a world tour), what you may not have known is that he and his wife, Dorothea Bongiovi, have been active in the community the rocker grew up in trying to make a difference for those less fortunate. The pair are at it again and have just unveiled their latest project to try and give back.
The Soul Kitchen is the new gourmet restaurant the couple have opened. However, it’s not like any celebrity gourmet restaurant you’ve ever heard of, this is one everyone can afford. Their “pay-what-you-can” menu offers some of the finest gourmet quality meals to those who can’t afford to eat out. Paying customers are asked to leave what they can in the envelopes left on the tables while those who can’t pay money are simply asked to pitch in.
“With the economic downturn, one of the things I noticed was that disposable income was one of the first things that went,” Jon explains. “Dining out, the family going to a restaurant, mom not having to cook, dad not having to clean up – a lot of memories were made around restaurant tables.”
“When I learned that one in six people in this country goes to bed hungry, I thought this was the next phase of the Foundation’s work.” he added.
The Foundation Jon is talking about is the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation. Other projects they’ve completed through the help of their namesake is building 260 houses for low income families, charity concerts, a local food pantry they began helping in several years ago, and their soup kitchen, Lunch Break, which feeds over 100 people per day, the one that started it all.
Now, after a year and $250,000, The Soul Kitchen is open to those who still want to enjoy fine quality dining at a price they can afford while giving back to the community.
“This is not a soup kitchen,” Bon Jovi makes clear. “You can come here with the dignities of linens and silver, and you’re served a healthy, nutritious meal. This is not burgers and fries.”
The restaurant offers a menu rich in gourmet soul food you’d find in any of the areas most famous eateries. Cornmeal crusted catfish with red beans and rice, grilled chicken breast with homemade basil mayo and rice pilaf and grilled salmon with soul seasonings, sweet potato mash and sauteed greens. Not only do the options sound mouth watering, many of the ingredients were grown in the herb and vegetable garden right outside the doors of the establishment.
“There are no prices on the menu, so if you want to come and you want to make a difference, leave a $20 in the envelope on the table. If you can’t afford to eat, you can bus tables, you can wait tables, you can work in the kitchen as a dishwasher or a sous chef,” he says. “If you say to me, ‘I’m not a people person,’ I say, ‘That’s not a problem. We’ll take you back to Lunch Break to volunteer with those people. If you don’t want to volunteer with that, we’ll take you to the Food Bank.”
“If you come in and say ‘I’m hungry,’ we’ll feed you,” he says. “But we’re going to need you to do something. It’s very important to what we’re trying to achieve.”
Once you’ve volunteered at these places, you’ll earn a food certificate good at The Soul Kitchen for your meal. This idea is all part of a bigger plan for the Foundation to help bring back some community and help people who are struggling know that there are people out there who care about them while giving a little back in return.
“This is not an entitlement thing,” the rocker adds. “This is about empowering people because you have to earn that gift certificate.”
Bon Jovi urges those who can afford to dine out to patron The Soul Kitchen to help make this a true community resource. They are open for dinner near the Red Bank train station in central New Jersey Thursday through Saturday and also offer Sunday Brunch. He and his wife have been staying active in the restaurant and the New Jersey moug we all know and love has been working there at least once per week to pitch in. While you might think he’s busy creating delicious dishes to don the menu with his decades of experience dining in the worlds best restaurants, you might be surprised.
“Last Friday, I was at the White House, serving on the Council for Community Solutions, got on a train, changed in the bathroom and got here in time to to wash dishes Friday night,” he said. “I’m the dishwasher, for real. I can’t cook a lick.”
We have to say, this is by far one of the coolest things we’ve heard of recently. We wish Jon and Dorothea and the rest of The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation much success.
So what do you think about this Celebstalkers? Isn’t is great to see celebrities giving back to the community?
It seems October is shaping up to be the month for celebrity weddings. Twilight Saga star Nikki Reed and fiance American Idol alumni Paul McDonald tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Malibu, California on Sunday. In front of 100 of the couples closest family and friends, the pair took the plunge at a private ranch. Nikki’s maid of honor was Spy Kids star Alexa Vega.
Nikki and Paul were dating only seven weeks when rumors started flying that the pair were engaged. When asked about the diamond engagement ring she was spotted wearing at this past summer’s MTV Movie Awards, Nikki said “I love him and I don’t care,” obviously referring to the fact that they’d gotten engaged so quickly.
As for their nuptials, McDonald told US that he and Nikki “couldn’t be happier…surrounded by our family and friends, we’re so happy this day has come.”
While further details of the private ceremony haven’t yet been released, you can see Nikki Reed reprise her role as Rosalie Hale in the fourth installment of the Twilight Saga. She’ll star alongside Robert Pattinson (last years June Mougar of the Month), Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Jackson Rathbone in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One which will premiere in theaters November 18, 2011.
So what do you think of the two tying the knot, Celebstalkers? Leave your comment and become immortalized forever!

According to recent reports, Lady Gaga says she would love for award-winning actress Marisa Tomei to portray her in a biopic role about her life (who wouldn’t, right?). On a recording of Surius XM Radio’s The Morning Mash Up, the singer was asked which Hollywood star she would most like to see if a movie were made about her life.
“I’ve always been a big fan of Rosario Dawson,” she said. “Oh you know what? I would have Marisa Tomei play me. I am such a Marisa Tomei fan.”
“All my friends call me Marisa when I get angry,” she explains.”Because my New York accent just flies out of my body and I start smacking my gum.”
So does the singer have any big screen dreams of her own?
“I think at some point, yes,” she says. “I think I’m sort of destined for that screen at some point.”
So what do you think, Celebstalkers? Do you think that Gaga’s got what it takes to be a leading lady?

Although the couple have not confirmed the news, reports say that the star is about 14 weeks pregnant with her second child.
Hudson has another child, a son named Ryder, from her previous marriage with Chris Robinson from the Black Crowes.
A source close to the couple told People, “They couldn’t be more excited.” Adding, “Kate is really happy. She was always excited to have kids again at some point.”
Another source told US Weekly, “It (the pregnancy) was not planned, but they are excited and embracing it.”
Matt and Kate have been seeing each other for at least 9 months now.
So, if the stories are true, what do you think Celebstalkers?
While Gwyneth Paltrow is typically one of the most put together and professional stars out there, she recently admitted on The Rachael Ray Show that during filming for her newest role as “Kelly Canter” for “Country Strong”, she drank while working to better understand her character and better play the role.
According to a recent interview, Paltrow allegedly said. “You just get really drunk all the time. Which is awesome! At least I did anyway, it’s not very professional. There’s a Bloody Mary at 10am and keep it going all day!”
This doesn’t really seem like something that Gwyneth would do, and we here at Celebstalk really don’t think that it is. Honestly, it sounds like it was just part of her creative process for this specific role.
In the film Country Strong, Paltrow’s character is a recovering alcoholic who rose to fame only to fall back down and is making a comeback into the industry.
The drinking on set is justified because according to recent reports, Paltrow says that she feels that you can’t show the recovering side of alcoholism without showing the alcoholic side first.
Whatever keeps you turning out those blockbusters, Gwyneth! You obviously have found a process that works!
The director of the stars hottest new film, Shana Feste, admits that the character that Gwyneth is playing in the film, Kelly Canter, was inspired on the public meltdown of Britney Spears.
Country Strong was released nationwide on January 7th and along with Gwyneth, it also stars country music singer and actor Tim McGraw and Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester.
While the clear winner of the night at this year’s People’s Choice Awards went to “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”, we were a little surprised at some of the awards that our favorite vamps and werewolves didn’t go home with.
Even though the cast made a pretty good sweep this year, Robert Pattinson didn’t do so well. Up for twp big awards, the sexy Brit who made Edward Cullen even hotter didn’t win either of them.
The first award, Favorite Movie Actor, went to Celebstalk’s Mougar of the Year, Johnny Depp…which I mean…come on…who beats Johnny Depp? As we were shown at the PCA, not even RPattz. The second awards, however, Rob lost out to Zac Efron for the Favorite Movie Star Under 25. Really?! Did anyone see Charlie St. Cloud?? We didn’t think so…
Even though he didn’t win, we still love you Rob and your castmates did pretty well. Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner went home with awards for Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite On-Screen Team. Eclipse also won Favorite Movie and Favorite Movie Drama.
Other big winners were “Glee”, “House”, Adam Sandler, Taylor Swift and Toy Story 3.
So what did you think of the show, Celebstalkers?
Okay, so our title isn’t Shakespeare, but you get the idea. Anyway, the latest buzz around Tinseltown is that John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan are dating. The whole thing has been pretty secretive due to John and his wife of 18 years recently calling it quits, but sources say that they are indeed an item.
The two have reportedly been seen in Martha’s Vineyard looking pretty cozy with each other.
Meg Ryan is one of America’s most beloved actresses from movies like “When Harry Met Sally”, “You’ve Got Mail” and “City of Angels”. John Mellancamp has been rockin’ his socks off for decades with hits like “Jack and Diane” and “Hurts So Good”.
No word yet from the two stars or John soon to be ex wife, model Elaine Irwin has to say about the rumors, but as soon as we have something, you will be the first to know, Celebstalkers!!
