Is Pamela Anderson dating WikiLeaks editor in chief Julian Assange?
The 49-year-old “Baywatch” star was seen leaving the Ecuadorian Embassy in London after visiting the WikiLeaks mastermind on Thursday.
Anderson’s frequent visits to the embassy over the past year — at least six in the past seven months — have caused a flurry of speculation that they’re a couple, People reports.
The other thing prompting gossip about their possible relationship is a lengthy post on Anderson’s website, in which she wrote that he is “one of my favorite people.”
“I am getting more involved with The Courage foundation who helps to defend whistleblowers …like Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange,” she wrote on Thursday. “My relationship with Julian – It’s no secret, He is one of my favorite people- and he might be the most famous, most politicized refugee of our time.”
In other Anderson news, tabloids are going bonkers over a recent episode of “Celebrity Juice,” a British TV comedy panel show hosted by Keith Lemon (aka Leigh Francis) in which the actress mimed a sex act in front of Lemon and guest Jimmy Carr.
CNN is having fun with a report about a 45-pound statue of a pregnant Beyonce called Brie-Oncé.
In a story Thursday, the network said the “Bey-hemoth” sculpture made of cheese, prepared for East Village Cheese and Wine festival in London, joins the ranks of the Mona Lisa and The Creation of Adam.
Sculptor David Bradley, working with a London agency, created the work, about which CNN quipped, “it doesn’t come with a Blue (cheese) Ivy sidekick.”
“A lot of cheese puns floated around, and Brie-oncé was the one everyone liked the most,” creative director Brandy Klingelpuss of The Robin Collective told CNN.
Apparently the team debated over the pose for the statue before deciding on the internet-breaking pregnancy announcement photo.
The sculpture took around 28 hours to make and, despite its name, is made out of five blocks of cheddar.
Bradley also is competing against two other sculptors during the festival’s Cheese Carving Championship.
CNN looks forward to other celeb cheese statues, saying, “Personally, we’re hoping for a Feta Wap or Lin Manchego Miranda.”
