It’s one thing to fall in love with and marry a dude who came in 8th place on ‘American Idol’ (yup, she apparently loved his voice that much!), but she took it a step further and decided to do an album with the guy. We all know Nikki Reed doesn’t exactly think straight, but what about Paul McDonald?! The guy fell into money and then proceeded to fuck it all up by doing some bullshit passion-project with his wife.
Who does that?
The only passion project married couples should be dabbling in are scantily-clothed projects that take place inside dimly-lit rooms behind closed doors. The guy already struck the lottery by marrying into ‘Twilight’ money, so why did he think it would be a good idea to do an album with his wife?!? You can’t possibly spend 24/7 with the same chick and expect everything to go well. Isn’t that covered in Marriage 101?!
Long story short, as if we didn’t already know the inevitable when Nikki Reed impulsively tied the knot back in 2011, the actress recently decided she was through fooling around with love and wanted to concentrate her efforts on someone more long-term and financially stable—like maybe a producer or director and hopefully this time, somebody who’s an A-lister. Hey, we all make mistakes, so it’s all good as long as Nikki had the dude sign a prenup.
And, for those of you who were looking forward to the joint album, no worries because Nikki and Paul plan to continue working on it since it’s due later this year. That’s a good one. Something tells me that the album will get pushed back…
Even though Olivia Wilde is pregnant, I feel this might work to her advantage in the poll. Also, I like Olivia’s hands-free, laid-back approach to filling gas, where as Nikki Reed’s form looks like it requires far more effort.
Nikki Reed made the promotional rounds in NYC earlier this week to promote the new ‘Twilight Forever’ box set. The actress apparently has a song on the soundtrack with her singer hubby Paul McDonald (remember him?–He was an ‘American Idol’ finalist a couple years back).
These particular pics are from back on Monday when Nikki appeared on ‘Good Day NY’ to promote her meet & greet at Times Square with ‘Twilight’ fans. So wait, there are still diehard ‘Twilight’ fans who make time to hit up these events? In the interview she discusses how she self-home schooled herself in L.A. and even wrote her first film at the age of 13. Was this chick in a cult or what? Watch a clip below…
Both ladies were hand to help support 7-Eleven 86th anniversary bash. The party was hosted by Nikki Reed and held yesterday afternoon at the Revolve Clothing Malibu Beach House. Judging by the photos, it’s fairly obvious who’s more excited to be in attendance between Nikki & Audrina…

Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience” album release party hosted by Target and Clear Channel at took place last night at the El Rey Theatre. This is JT’s third studio album and you’ve probably heard “Suit & Tie” 100s of times already and the second single “Mirrors” is probably going that route too. So apparently there’ll be a “second half” of “The 20/20 Experience” set to be released in November so basically fans will have to buy a second album to truly get that JT 20/20 experience; all a marketing ploy in our opinion. Why not just put out one double album? Anyway, used copies are already available on Amazon if you haven’t already (illegally) downloaded your copy already.
The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards mPowering Action took place last night at The Conga Room. The event featured performances by Timbaland and Avicii leading up to the Grammy Awards Show tomorrow night.

Nikki Reed and Sarah Shahi were the only noteworthy guests to us who attended Autism Speaks “Blue Tie Blue Jean Ball” held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. Along with her husband Paul McDonald, the pair performed a song off their EP “The Best Part”, which by the way is avaiable on iTunes. Sarah Shahi did the hosting duties along with Beth Riesgraf and Krysten Ritter. As with all other gala/ball events, it was a fundraiser to research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism and increase awareness. For more info, visit the Autism Speaks website.
So for those who’s invitation to the 2012 American Music Awards got lost in the mail, there was the 2012 Rolling Stone American Music Awards After Party held at Rolling Stone Restaurant and Lounge in Hollywood. Apparently this wasn’t the “Official” after party which was at the Avalon hosted by the Hollywood agency and US Weekly at Lure. Anyways, to recap the actual show once again, Justin Bieber won all three of his nominations, including Artist of the Year, Nicki Minaj won two, and Rihanna, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Taylor Swift each took one award home each. For more info and the complete list of winners, visit 40th Anniversary American Music Awards at ABC.com. Check out the rest of our coverage from the 2012 American Music Awards.
