Model nearly moved to tears in Rio

 

Gisele Bundchen almost cried before her appearance at the Olympic Games opening ceremony.

The 36-year-old supermodel walked the runway during the prestigious event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Friday and her emotions nearly got the better of her before she took to the stage in her home country. Bundchen told Access Hollywood: "Believe me, I was very emotional - I was really breathing very deeply not to cry. Imagine if I walked on the runway crying!"

"My country, I feel, it's about happiness and joy. The Brazilian people are so welcoming and loving and I can't walk crying. What kind of representation is that? So I just tried to relax as much as I could," she said.

Gisele was incredibly "proud" to be involved and represent her country at the ceremony. She said, "I was just so proud of being there. I was proud for Brazil, I was proud for our people. I mean, so many different names, so many people who have worked so hard to make such a beautiful celebration. I really think Brazilians, we have this simplicity about us, it's so beautiful because it showed."

And Gisele - who has children Benjamin, five years old, and Vivian, three, with husband Tom Brady - thinks the organisers did a "wonderful job" with the event, as it perfectly reflected the host nation.

 

Snoop, Martha do new TV show

 

Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart have teamed up for a new television show.

The 44-year-old rapper and 75-year-old lifestyle guru have been enlisted by VH1 for the unscripted series, currently titled Martha & Snoop's Dinner Party, which will see them host a dinner party for a number of different celebrities.

Martha believes the show will connect with audiences because of their obsession with food and celebrities. She said, "At our dinner party we will exemplify America's fascination with food, entertaining and celebrity. Martha & Snoop's Dinner Party will redesign the traditional food competition shows in a new, different and very funny way."

Snoop added: "My homegirl, Martha, and I have a special bond that goes back. We're gonna be cooking, drinking and having a good time with our exclusive friends. Can't wait for you to see how we roll together!"

The show doesn't currently have an air date, but VH1 President Chris McCarthy promised it would be "unforgettable".

It is not the first time Snoop and Martha have worked together as they both appeared on ABC's 100,000 Pyramid and Snoop has been a guest on Martha's talk show. Most recently, they both starred in Comedy Central's roast of Justin Bieber.

 

Kim feared Beyonce's moves

 

Kim Kardashian West says her "biggest fear" was dancing next to Beyonce.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star joined her husband Kanye West when he toured with Jay-Z in 2011 and admits she was worried about how her dancing skills would stack up against the Crazy In Love hitmaker.

She said: "My biggest fear was during Watch the Throne that if I sit next to BeyoncÈ, she dances and she's up, like, you know. So, the last night of the tour she came to dressing room and was like 'Hey, do you want to sit together?' Then, she wanted to go in the mosh pit and I was like 'What do we do in the mosh pit?' She's like, 'dance! Just let loose. Just Dance!' And I was like, 'My life is over!'"

The 35-year-old television personality - who has North, three years old, and Saint, eight months, with the Only One rapper - also admitted her dislike for dancing caused one of the "biggest fights" the couple ever had.

And just because Kim isn't a keen dancer, she still manages to keep fit by working out. She said: "I think dieting is so important to weight loss, whereas, I didn't really ever think that before. I thought, 'Oh, I can work out, I can just eat whatever I want.' But you have to work out all the time."
