Zooey Deschanel’s divorce has been finalised.

 
The ‘New Girl’ actress’ union with Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard has been officially dissolved, over a year after they officially separated on October 31, 2011.

 
Zooey- who was married to Ben for two years – filed divorce papers in Los Angeles Superior County Court on December 27, 2011, citing "irreconcilable differences" as her reason behind the split.

 
Just months prior to the announcement, Zooey – who is now dating screenwriter Jamie Linden - said she enjoyed being married because it "solidified" the couple's commitment to each other.

 
She explained: "You can't expect to make no effort. You still have to make the effort and be kind and understanding. It sort of just solidifies your commitment."

 
Meanwhile, Ben has previously admitted he was "awestruck" that Zooey even agreed to speak to him in the first place because she was so "beautiful."

 
He revealed: "I'd seen her movies and obviously I thought she was very beautiful. [When we were introduced] I was awestruck that she was even talking to me!"

Ben Affleck thinks he has married above him.
 

The 'Argo' star still can't believe he has beautiful wife Jennifer Garner on his arm and says the secret to a successful marriage is choosing someone who is out of your league.

 
He said: "There are two things for a marriage to be good. One is to work hard on it. The other one is to marry above you. And I succeeded at both of those."

 
The actor-and-director admits his wife is "cool" with his hectic schedule and says he appreciates how she stays up late waiting for him to come to bed so they can brainstorm ideas about whatever new film he's working on.

 
He explained: "My wife is very cool. She knows that directing is consuming in that way. She's just happy I come home. Usually, I come home after the kids are in bed anyway. We like to chat for a little bit and l'll talk about the movie and what I'm doing, what I'm thinking or whatever. She's a good sounding board."

 
The Hollywood couple - who have children Violet, seven, Seraphina, three, and nine-month-old Samuel together - have had to adjust their lifestyles to cater for their expanding family, and Ben admits Jennifer has sacrificed her love of travel for the sake of their kids. He said: "My wife would just love to travel, but having three children in a row has meant that I travel more than she does. She wants to travel so much."

Ashley Roberts is ready to love again.

 
The former Pussycat Dolls singer has been largely single for around three years, and though she has been on a few dates, she is only just ready to settle down.

 
She said: "I've dated here and there, but now I finally feel ready to be in a committed relationship. I won't go out searching for it, though.

 
"I'm focusing on myself and my career, but I'm confident that when the time is right, the right guy will come in."

 
Ashley thinks British men have "sexy" accents and she is particularly keen to find someone with a sense of humour to match hers.

 
She added in an interview with Britain's Hello! magazine: "I love the British accent. It's so sexy. "I don't mind what industry my next boyfriend is involved in - love knows no boundaries. But he'd need to be confident, not cocky - there is a difference. "I'm a bit of a goofball - I enjoyed joking around and being silly - so a man who can make me laugh is a serious contender. I'm attracted to men who have a zest for life and what they do."

 Adopting their first child helped Hugh Jackman and his wife overcome the pain of multiple miscarriages.

 

The 44-year-old actor and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness always planned to adopt after having their own biological children but when they were unable to conceive naturally, bringing forward their adoption plans helped the couple recover from their losses. Hugh – who has kids Oscar, 12 and seven-year-old Ava with Deborra – told Katie Couric on her talk show ‘Katie’: "Until you go through it, you understand it’s not talked about a lot. By the way to be clear, Deb and I always wanted to adopt. So that was always in our plan. We didn’t know where in the process that would happen but biologically obviously we tried and it was not happening for us and it is a difficult time. We did IVF and Deb had a couple of miscarriages. I’ll never forget it, the miscarriage thing… It happens to one in three pregnancies. But it’s very, very rarely talked about. It’s almost secretive, so I hope Deb doesn’t mind me bringing it up now.

 

“It’s a good thing to talk about it. It’s more common and it is tough. There’s a grieving that you have to go through. So the moment Oscar was born, all the heartache just melted away.”

While Hugh and Deborra were thrilled to have a child of their own, the ‘Les Miserables’ star admitted all of his emotions were heightened when he became a parent.

He said: “Parents know you can’t prepare for that moment. Nothing can prepare you... You can’t even explain how incredible it is and that avalanche of emotion that comes and how it opens up your heart, how it frustrates you, how it angers you, how everything is just all the sudden how alive you are as a parent.”

Howard Stern wants Rosie O’Donnell to join him on the panel of ‘America’s Got Talent’.

 
The DJ recently revealed he will return to the TV talent show despite initial doubts and those close to Howard revealed he is lobbying for Rosie to get a role too.

 
A source told the Huffington Post: "Rosie and Howard have had a tough past but now they are great friends. He thinks she is a great talent and will bring a new energy to that show.

 
"NBC wants to keep Howard happy, and the chemistry between the judges is what makes the show a huge success. Just think what Rosie did when she joined 'The View' -- suddenly the show became must-see TV again. At the moment, a list of names exists, but if it were solely up to Howard, Rosie would get the job."

 
NBC recently praised Howard’s "towering presence and opinions" when announcing his return for the new series. Paul Telegdy, president of NBC's alternative and late-night programming said: "Howard Stern's towering presence and opinions on last season's show as a new judge made a dramatic impact and added a sharper edge to the fascinating developments on stage.

 
Howard's fellow judge Howie Mandel is also set to return although Sharon Osbourne quit the panel earlier this year after claiming NBC fired her son Jack Osbourne via email from reality show 'Stars Earn Stripes' following his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Naomi Watts’ husband is threatening to withhold their children’s Christmas presents if they don’t stop fighting.

 
Liev Schreiber revealed sons Sasha, five and four-year-old Samuel are fighting with each other at the moment and the only way he can think to stop them is to deny them any festive gifts.

 
He told OK! magazine: “They’re kind of at war right now so there hasn’t been any precious moments. Once Christmas is gone and the presents are out of the way, maybe they’ll return to normalcy again.” When asked how he plans to stop the “war”, Liev joked: “Less presents”.
 
Because of their nomadic lifestyle, Liev and Naomi don’t have any special holiday traditions. He explained: “We’re both actors so tradition is not big with either of us. We’re going to stay home and have dinner. Maybe see our grandmas.” The 45-year-old actor also revealed he and his family are close to Hugh Jackman, his wife Deborra-Lee Furness and their kids and they all often spend time together in New York where they live. He said: “Hugh and I play tennis together and talk about movies. We have a lot in common. The kids and his wife Deb and Naomi are friends too.”

Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan have a “deep bond”.

 
The ‘Anger Management’ actor recently gave the troubled starlet $100,000 to help pay off her hefty $233,904 tax bill and while Lindsay didn’t thank him until Charlie publicly complained, Lindsay’s mother Dina insists the pair are close. She told Perezhilton.com: "Lindsay continues to feel an immeasurable respect and love for her dear friend Charlie Sheen. They have a deep bond and she has expressed privately her sincerest gratitude to Charlie for his immense generosity on her behalf. She and I are deeply appreciative for his kindest of gestures. Charlie you are a true gentleman."

 
Lindsay, 26, sent Charlie a bunch of flowers and a hand-written letter in which she explained to him that she didn't mean to be rude but couldn't contact him because she lost his number when her phone broke recently.

 
The former 'Two And A Half Men' star generously helped out his 'Scary Movie 5' co-star when he heard she was having financial difficulties after not being paid for one of her projects but Charlie admitted he was unimpressed that she accepted money from him but didn't acknowledge it.

 
He said: "She got shorted and I found out, so I said: 'Here'. I'm still waiting for a text to say 'Thank you'. Anything you know?"

A Florida man accused of hacking into the email accounts of more than 50 celebrities, including Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

 
Christopher Chaney, 35, pleaded guilty to nine felony counts, including wiretapping and unauthorised access to a computer and was given the decade long sentence by US District Judge S. James Otero in Los Angeles on Monday (17.12.12). Mr. Chaney previously explained how he clicked on the 'forgot password' feature and then correctly answered the stars' security questions to gain access to their email accounts. He then uploaded a bug which forwarded all incoming mail to him.

 
As a result, the clerical worker managed to get hold of nude photographs Scarlett took for then-husband Ryan Reynolds, as well as risqué snaps taken by Mila and Christina - all of which were leaked online. He was finally caught after an 11-month FBI investigation dubbed "Operation Hackerazzi”.

 
Prosecuting attorney Andre Birotte Jr previously said the guilty pleas, "shine a bright light on the dark underworld of computer hacking”.

 
He said: "This case demonstrates that everyone, even public figures, should take precautions to shield their personal information from the hackers that inhabit that dark underworld."

Gwen Stefani admits her marriage has been a struggle.

 
The No Doubt singer and Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale have been married for 10 years and have sons Kingston, six and Zuma, four, together and while their union is strong, Gwen admitted it hasn’t always been easy. She told American Vogue magazine: “You feel proud. There are just so many rewards that come with it. You have to work at it. But, actually, it’s fun to get to this point. Because you learn so much about somebody. It’s like these wars that go on and then you kind of get through it to the other side, and it’s like, Wow. And obviously, you get stronger.

 
“And then having kids takes the whole relationship to another place. It is the ultimate collaboration. Both of us have such strong opinions about how it should be, and it’s really fun to do it together.”

 
Gwen, 43, also revealed Gavin’s decision to spend the past year touring with his band made life difficult for her. She explained: “I mean, he was there for me mentally, but physically? These boys are physical. They wake up and they start punching each other! “One thing we’ve had in our relationship the whole time is that we can have it both ways: together, not together, and it’s fine. But when you have kids? It’s not so great. They need him. Once you have a family, it’s just so obvious how everyone needs each other. So it’s really nice to have him back.”

 [ Masterweb Reports ] – I read with bemusement Ogaga Ifovwodo’s piece on the Vice President’s official residence. I do not understand his quarrel with the cost of the nation’s Number Two’s official residence. That the residence of the vice president is to cost a mere sixteen billion naira is a surprise to me. When I first heard of the cost, I thought they were referring to the official residence of a deputy governor of a state. What is so special about this amount that has made Ogaga Ifovwodo have sleepless nights? Has Ifovwodo forgotten that this is Nigeria and not a tiny country like Gambia or Seychelles or even Eritrea?
 
This is Nigeria! The most populous black nation in the world! The giant of Africa! The most blessed country in the continent! Rich in oil and other mineral resources! Rich in human resources! Has Ifovwodo forgotten that Nigeria was paying the salaries of some South American nations in the early seventies? This is a country where ordinary citizens like me have purchased private jets worth over a trillion naira in the last five years. Is Nigeria such a poor country that the Vice President’s official residence should be like those found in Ajegunle or Suleja? Money has never been our problem as Ifowodo rightly quoted Gowon. The problem has always been how to spend it. Now that we are wisely spending our money, enemies of this government are quarrelling with it.

 
The Vice President’s residence must befit the status. Let us equally remember that it is not the personal property of Sambo. Ifovwodo may reside there in future as the nation’s vice president. The place must have a worship centre. There must be a mosque, church and traditional place of worship for people like the Kongi and others of his ilk. The place of worship is meant as place where the Vice President will go and ask for forgiveness if he mistakenly misplaces a few billion naira. He can equally go there to ask for miracle for a better Nigeria even though he has planned for a better Nigeria.

 
A state of the art hospital is also ear marked for the Vice President’s residence. It will be manned by specialist doctors from Saudi Arabia and Germany. This is to prevent another Yar’dua and Chime’scenario where Nigerians will be wondering where their leaders are receiving treatment. In this case, special assistants in the Vice President’s Office can be signing documents on his behalf and claiming it is signed by the Vice President if (God forbid) he falls sick.

 
The Vice President’s official residence is also have a banquet hall that will accommodate about a thousand people. The place will be used for official and non official functions. Once in a while, Dbanj, Tu Face and others could be invited to entertain the nation’s big wigs with undergraduate females being invited to learn the art of governance. The Vice President will no longer run to Kaduna and in fear too when giving out his daughters for marriage. The banquet hall serves that purpose. There must be enough rooms too in the official residence where the Vice President’s relatives and friends can lodge thereby saving money that would have been used for hotel accommodation.

 
The security of the Vice President is equally important. While monitoring devices will be installed both within and without the premises, a missile shield will also be installed. Nobody knows what these Boko Haram people may come up with. Prevention, they say, is better than cure. Armoured cars will be permanently stationed there. What will happen if kidnappers kidnap our Vice President? That is why the residence must be well secured.

 
As prophetically suggested by Senator Smart Adeyemi, the furniture for the Vice President’s residence will be made in heaven. The famed Benin furniture makers will not be good enough. The kitchen materials will cost over a billion naira. Every other material that will be used to furnish the residence will be imported. There will equally be a landing pad for helicopters to land and take off (not the type of helicopters used by the Nigerian Navy). Because of the good nature of our roads and for security purposes, the Vice President will no longer be using our roads. The Vice President will be flying from and to office so that we do not have another Murtala Muhammed in our hands.

 
President Jonathan, you will agree with me has be very frugal in spending. He is spending lessthan a billion naira next year for feeding. He now eats only cassava bread found only in Aso Rock supermarket. Abakiliki rice is now his favourite. In next year’s budget, some amount have been ear marked for generator repairs because there will be constant power by 2013. I learnt that an order has been given that no diesel should be bought to power generators next year. The new banquet hall in Aso Rock is a mere two billion naira. He is buying just one additional to add to the presidential fleet. This project is not expensive.

 
With some other features that will be provided in the official residence of the vice president, I see no reason with Ifovwodo’s anger. To me, the amount is inadequate. The agency required to vet all contracts have seen the need for contract variation. Ogaga Ifovwodo talked about building schools and hospitals. How can the Vice President brainstorm and think properly on how to make Nigeria better if he sleeps in a “matchbox house”? This was the type of residence Jakande was staying in Ilupeju while he was governor of Lagos state. The same with Bafarawa while governor of Sokoto State.
 
The era where our leaders stay in their inadequate personal residences to administer the people is over. The said amount is not even half of what some fuel importers were paid as fuel subsidy. Delta State spent N7.4billion to demolish anthills in Asaba Airport in ten days. That is the way money must be spent. Not frugal like some war torn countries. Nigeria is rich. We must show that we are rich. The Vice President’s residence is an example of showing that we are rich.

 [ Masterweb Reports ] – There is disturbing news within pastoral circles in Abuja concerning some backslidden colleagues whose recent patronage of a certain Port Harcourt based occult woman is a source of concern. This woman fabled with the ability to make people see visions of people’s names, phone numbers, bank details, colors of ladies underwear and sundry secrets. After reading my recent article ‘new style prophets : visions of phone numbers and ladies underwear’, a pastor who was about to be initiated into the Port Harcourt Cult of Prophets, out of little fear of God, sought a second opinion on the issue. This pastor who has a small church in Abuja believes that the numerical strength of his church is not commensurate with his efforts and is desperate to try other means of succeeding in ministry. Therefore, he intended joining the group loyal to the mystery woman before my meeting with him.
 
Some pastors have confirmed to me that actually there is a woman in Port Harcourt who gives power to see visions and they mentioned the names of some colleagues that patronized her. This woman whom they claimed is so powerful that she can appear and disappear, will firstly demand some indecent sexual gratification from the prospective pastor as signs of loyalty, including sucking of certain organs. After the sexual affairs, she will make some animal cry and administer some other materials and the eyes of the patrons will open to see the spirit world and discuss with some strange beings. She indoctrinates them that there is nothing like heaven, hell or sin and that God kept lots of treasures in the water kingdom to help humanity in fashion, music, movies, politics, finance, health and pastoral work and only those bound by oath of loyalty and secrecy are eligible to access the treasures of the spirit world. They described pastors who are yet to join as slaves who will soon bow to the children of the illuminated.

 
Many pastors, both young and old ones are being lured into this Port Harcourt cult and within weeks what appears like miracles, prophesy and prosperity becomes regular feature in their congregation. Some notable pastors in Abuja have shamelessly joined the bandwagon while a others stuck to their other sources of powers. One of the recently initiated pastors mentioned the names of a bishop and a prophet patronized by top government officials within the presidency among those who convinced him to visit the woman. Rather than see the entire operation as demonic, he sees it as business and advised others to connect before the window closes.

 
Another pastor who renounced membership of the cult earlier in the year had to run away from his base to Abuja when he received constant death threat from the group. He was advised to subject himself to days of fasting at one of the deliverance churches in town which he promptly did.

 
The situation has become alarming that the aforementioned pastor who was approached for membership, out of indecision and fear of hell fire, sought my opinion, and subsequently paid a visit to a recent initiate. According to the recently initiated pastor, the consultation and oil fee was initially N100, 000 naira but due to the surging crowd, they have increased the consultation fee to N200, 000 naira. Then there are prices for different types of oil. The most popular is called ‘’seeing oil’’ which empowers people to see into other peoples secret. The next most popular oil is called ‘do as I say’ which makes it possible for the congregation to do whatsoever the pastor says without any compulsion including surrendering all live savings. There is also oil called ‘touch and follow’ which they use to hypnotize any beautiful lady who comes their way into sleeping with them. There is oil for falling under anointing called ‘slaying oil’. There is ‘crowd pulling oil’ used to increase membership strength. The payment for the oil is different from the consultation fee.

 
This oil must be serviced and refreshed by constant homosexual, fornication and adulterous activities especially shortly before preaching. The second condition is that the pastor must emphasize on prosperity and motivational messages above the message of righteousness. The pastors will also return to give back a part of the proceeds as thanksgiving.

 
I had weeks earlier confronted a pastor of a church who recently patronized the woman and was excited that he now sees into people’s future. This man whose attempt to draw crowd to his church and enter the league of super rich failed repeatedly despite numerous efforts, got tired of the situation and decided to help God. His submission and affinity to some senior colleagues for transference of anointing through seed sowing and impartation equally failed until a bishop introduced him to this powerful woman in Port Harcourt. This once firebrand pastor now indulges in homosexuality and adultery and does not feel any compunction about it.

 
This issue of pastors getting powers from occultist kingdom was first experienced by me as a young pastor in a church seventeen years ago and we observed strange things which we didn’t understand but rejected because it didn’t look spiritually clean. Years later during a retreat at Scripture Union Camp of Faith Okigwe, I came back to the hostel around 2am after prayers and overhead a very senior pastor of a church in Owerri at one corner behind the hostel sobbing and telling God that ‘’if you do not give me power now to do the miraculous, I will go to where others go to get theirs...’’ This pastor, oblivious of my presence, went ahead to mention in his prayers ,the names of pastors colleagues who have gone to get powers from different places and threatened God to either show up or risk losing him to the other side’’. Later on I started receiving eyewitness account of some people who have acquired strange powers, how they got involved and why they did such.

 
One of them who recently joined this Port Harcourt cult , in response to my disapproval said ‘’man of God, if hunger have wired you, you wouldn’t be talking like this ‘’ while the other one said that he cannot continue to tolerate the sight of little pastors making waves while he continues to be a spectator.

 
The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) and Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) have not effectively monitored pastoral activities while some pastors have rejected membership of the body; therefore everybody is his own master. This overemphasis on prosperity is killing the churches that now some pastor flock to strange places for spiritual empowerment in order to belong to the class of super rich pastors, accompanied by lots of homosexual bodyguards. The generation that started the Pentecostal revival in Nigeria immediately after the Biafra war, gave birth to pastors like Uma Ukpai, Paul Nwachukwu, Austin Nwodika, Nicholas Ezeh, Williams Kumuyi, Enoch Adeboye, David Oyedepo, Mike Okonkwo and the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa , Prophet Gabriel Oduyemi, among others. The current generation is birthing pastors who flock to bar beach Lagos, Calabar, Kumasi, Ashanti, Tamale and some parts of Cameroun to receive powers.

 
If these Pentecostal fathers do not hasten to address this evil trend and arrest the influx of strange powers into the church, within the next five years, the Nigerian Church will become a branch of the Marine kingdom and the little fire of the Holy Spirit still remaining will be extinguished. The history of strange powers infiltrating the church started from Simon the Magnus (Acts 8 vs 9-24) who repented at the preaching of Philip but later according to church history as illustrated by Iraneaus and Justin Martyr became the author of strange signs in the church. However, the early church rose against it and temporarily checkmated it.

 
However, if the church leaders show the usual indifference attitude to the issue, non-pastors, church workers and the laity should endeavor to personally grow their faith in God and be careful of wolves in sheep’s clothing whose purpose is to win souls for the devil.

 
It is worthy to note that majority of pastors in Abuja who have been approached for membership rejected it outright and it is only few misled ones that appear excited about this Port Harcourt Occult woman. God still performs miracles in churches and pastors in need of such grace should wait upon The Lord in prayers instead of seeking the assistance of unclean spirits. Genuine pastors should shut down spiritually all these manifestations of strange powers before the anger of God falls on both the guilty and the innocent with disastrous consequences.

This year several attempts were made in the past four months by enemies of progress in Nigeria ( those who think they are born to rule Nigeria while the rest of the people are their slaves ) to close Nigeria Masterweb down. Two times within the same period, Nigeria Masterweb site was suspended with threats of permanent cancellation of its hosting account. Certain forces in Nigeria (not the government), Masterweb Intelligence gathered were doing all they could with stolen oil money to pull us off the web. Finally in August they succeeded in getting our site permanently suspended and hosting account canceled. Their bid to shutdown the voice of the people failed as we came back online several hours after their miscalculation on our own server.
 
Our website and server are now well secured to effectively deter any intrusion by these vandals whose only interest is how to rule and exploit Nigeria. They do not want a restructured Nigeria, but business as usual. They will fail because Masterweb will intensify efforts in news and information dissemination to enable you know your rights. We will in due course provide information to those that will like to offer us financial support in helping us sustain our service better.

 [ Masterweb Reports ] – Governor Peter Obi has distributed flood relief materials to all communities in Ogbaru and Amnambra West Local Government Areas at the weekend. Governor Obi who presented the materials at Atani, the Headquarters of the Local Government, also presented one million naira to each of the communities, totaling sixteen million naira. He also did same at Anambra West communities that received relief materials and Seventeen Million Naira. Obi said he was personally supervising the distribution of those materials to ensure that they get to those they were meant for.
 
The materials distributed include bags of rice, garri, smovita, maize, cartons of noddles, tubers of yam, blankets, mattresses, pillows, clothing materials, cartons of soap, pots, plastic can and buckets among others. Governor Obi said the gesture was in line with his earlier promise that government would assist those displaced by the flood to resettle in their various communities and pick up their sources of livelihood. He explained that the materials will be shared equally to the sixteen communities and enjoined the traditional rulers and Presidents General to ensure that the materials are properly and transparently shared, assuring that more relief materials will be extended to the area.

 
The Governor said the one million naira financial support was to assist farmers to bring seedlings and other inputs for their farms. The Speaker State House of Assembly, Princess Chinwe Nwaebili said the Governor had continued to carry the people of the area along and had given them a sense of belonging, noting that the materials would help to cushion the effect of the flood. Princess Chinwe Nwaebili disclosed that the Governor has adequately empowered the contractor handling the Odekpe-Atani-Ossomala-Ogwuikpele road to accelerate tempo of work.

 
The Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Osseloka Obaze noted that the Governor has remained unrelenting in his efforts to mitigate the plight of those affected by the flood and thanked him for fulfilling his promise.

 [ Masterweb Reports ] - "Should Christians celebrate Christmas?" or, "How should a Christian celebrate Christmas?" These are questions of concern for many sincere believers. In fact, many believers dislike the season and have refused to celebrate it at all. A number of reasons are given, and while I might agree with some of their concerns and some of the reasons offered against the observance of Christmas, I would not necessarily agree with their conclusions. One day I happened to catch a TV preacher denouncing the celebration of Christmas. He was saying it is pagan holiday, and that Christ could not have born in December. He used some Old Testament passages to show how the Christmas tree was idolatrous and an abomination. He quoted Jeremiah 10:2-4 which reads: “Thus says the LORD, "Do not learn the way of the nations, And do not be terrified by the signs of the heavens Although the nations are terrified by them; 3 For the customs of the peoples are delusion; Because it is wood cut from the forest, The work of the .......
