And it took all of two seconds for Brittany's to be replaced. Twilight's Rachelle Lefevre hopped on a red eye as soon as Murphy was out. Our source also tell us that Brittany was so pissed about getting booted from the film that she didn't want to leave Puerto Rico and had plans to sabotage the film.
But here's the really inneresting part. Her husband, Simon Monjack, got into a fight with some locals, which makes us wonder: could there be a connection between this whole Puerto Rico incident and her hubby arriving at the El Lay airport "incoherent"??? They're probably happy about this little scuffle/illness thing. More pills for both of them!]
One woman's meltdown is another woman's gain. Rachelle Lefevre was famously booted from the Twilight franchise in favor of Bryce Dallas Howard. At least she got a little bone thrown her way - she deserves it. Meanwhile, it sounds like Brittany's bad behavior continues to get the better of her. It becomes increasingly doubtful that we'll ever see a comeback from this former cutie - unless she finds a way to dump the extra baggage. That extra baggage being her husband (and reputed bad influence), Simon Monjack. I think a lifetime of vibrators and fantasies about Ashton Kutcher (Brit's ex) would be less punishing than sex with that guy! Perhaps that explains the alleged pill use... Can you believe Murphy was once rumored to be on the "short list" (pun intended) as a desired bride for Tom Cruise? That really would have been the gift that kept on giving. Holy hell.
Witherspoon, 33, and Gyllenhaal, 28, costarred in the 2007 movie Rendition, after which rumors started flying about them as an off-screen couple. By the summer of 2008, however, the rumors appeared to be confirmed, thanks, in part, to an extended Bastille Day holiday in Paris - followed, the next month, when they were seen in Marrakech, spending a Saturday strolling hand-in-hand, checking out bazaar stalls, before stepping into the shade for lunch, according to reports.
By that fall, Witherspoon was telling Vogue about Gyllenhall: "He's very supportive. Suffice it to say, I'm very happy in life, and I'm very lucky to have a lot of really supportive people around me who care very much for me, and, you know, that's all you can hope for in life. I am very blessed in that way."
This spring, in April, the two enjoyed a steamy escape to the Southern California desert, where they looked cozy together at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. "Reese looked cute in a hat and bikini," an eyewitness told PEOPLE. "She was in a great mood and kept chatting with Jake between sips of a piĂ±a colada." And as recently as last month, things still appeared to be running smoothly between the two, with Witherspoon telling InStyle, "We spend the weekends outside L.A, in Ojai, where I have a farmhouse. We have chickens and we grow cucumbers and tomatoes. I love it. It reminds me of where I grew up in Tennessee."]
People Magazine is generally acknowledged as being a reliable source, as far as tabloid-ish journalism is concerned. They wouldn't have gone out of their way to report the "news" if it wasn't well-documented; that's definitely not the magazine's style. However, the breakup was quickly denied by both the actors reps. Did true love triumph? Was it just too much of a pain in the ass to split during the holiday season? Is it a case of convenient timing? Both Jake and Reese have a stake in the December holiday entertainment profits. Witherspoon's Four Christmases DVD release is just around the corner and Gyllenhaal has two upcoming films to promote (Brothers and Prince of Persia). In the end, does anyone care either way? I want to join my cat for a nap just thinking about it. I feel like I did after my recent (delicious) Thanksgiving dinner - I've consumed too much and now I'm just tired. Can't those crazy kids just be happy?

"The argument got heated and she scratched his face up," a source said. "Tiger made hasty retreat for his SUV but Elin followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club." Reports have claimed Woods' facial lacerations were inflicted by Nordegren -- and weren't the result of his Friday car accident.
In an attempt to determine if the wounds Woods sustained are consistent with a car accident or domestic violence, the Florida Highway Patrol is now focusing on obtaining a search warrant -- allowing them to seize medical records from the hospital that treated Tiger, according to TMZ.]
A bit more, via Bitten & Bound:
[Tiger Woods has been uncooperative with Florida Highway Patrol investigators who have tried three times to interview the PGA phenom about the car crash that occurred in the early morning hours of Friday, November 27. FHP is currently pursuing a search warrant that will give them access to medical records from Woods' treatment at Health Central Hospital.]
Yikes. It's always sad to read about the demise of a relationship that was always assumed to be a happy one. It's clear that Tiger is trying to protect Elin - albeit too little, too late. You can read his complete statement here. Rumor has it that Rachel Uchitel is the women Woods was allegedly having an affair with this summer. In an odd coincidence, Rachel was also linked to David Boreanza earlier this year. It's reported that David also cheated on his wife with Uchitel, while his wife was pregnant with their second child, no less. Either Rachel has some serious mojo, or someone has their facts wrong. That's a lot of marriage-busting for one person...
According to an ABC insider, the network is hoping Brown's interview, which was taped last weekend, will provide a ratings boost. The insider said the interview is "to give him a chance to respond to Rihanna's interview," which aired earlier this month. Brown will also be performing songs from his new album. His GMA appearance is scheduled to air week after next.
"The network is giving a mixed message -- that it doesn't trust someone who shocked with an unpredictable show and a gay kiss, but then it is happy to go ahead with Chris Brown, who was convicted of felony assault," said the source. After being dropped by GMA, Lambert appeared on the CBS Early Show instead.]
I've never understood Good Morning America. It seems like a bizarrely outdated concept - proven even more so by this extremely poor (and shocking) choice. Clearly they're willing to bow to the religious right and have no problem slapping their core audience (women) across the face. Nice work. Oh, and giving Brown the chance to "respond to Rihanna's interview" is some sick stuff. The only thing Chris should be responding to are the orders of a prison guard. Gotta love our society's double standards.

"Katie talked through all of 'New Moon.' It was unbelievable - they talked nonstop about the movie and everything else. Some people wanted to tell them to be quiet, but when they realized who it was, they stayed silent. No one wanted to shush Katie." (Source)
So why didn't anyone want to shush Katie Holmes again? If some asshole blabbed through my favorite movie, I don't care if she's Queen Shit of Turd Mountain, we're going to have a serious problem.]
I wish I had been in that movie theater! Oh, perchance to dream. Needless to say, I wouldn't have a problem shushing Holmes. Perhaps Miley and Katie should do lunch - sounds like they have a lot in common! And by "a lot in common" I mean acting like bitches.
If you're amongst the many that believe John Mayer should quit his womanizing ways, you are not alone. Unfortunately that large faction of people does not include John Mayer. What women see in a known chick-hunter is beyond me. Is he really so good that you just have to try a sample? Or are you one of the fools that thinks you can change a man? I think we know the answer in both Jessica Simpson's and Jennifer Aniston's cases! Details, via Hollyscoop:
[Leave it John Mayer to tell us exactly how he's feeling. He recently did an interview with the New York Times and came up with the conclusion that his problems stem from the fact that he's not having enough sex.
He says, "I should be having sex with more girls." John never seems to be single for too long--this might be the longest we've seen him without a lady friend. But John thinks the dating scene has gotten him into trouble.
He says, "It's crazy to me that in my head, that being 32 and dating women is going to get me in trouble. I can't even explain to you how terrible that feels, that I equate dating a woman with punishment, shame, guilt, disappointment, reproach, reprimand, persecution. It's a nightmare."
It seems John is pretty worried about how the public perceives him right now. At a recent show in Brooklyn he told the crowd, "They say I'm a womanizer," he complained. "I say I haven't met enough women."]
And a little more, via the New York Times. That's what he said:
[Being an ambivalent, self-aware heartthrob has its downsides, it turns out, and Mr. Mayer, who in his day job is one of the most popular soft-rock singers of the last decade, isn't shy about sharing them. In the three years since his last album, the double-platinum "Continuum" (Columbia), was released, he's become a demiceleb of the tabloid world, as well known for his arm candy -- Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston -- and his tests of will with the media as for his music. But now it's music time again, right?
If Mr. Mayer has successfully put his cynicism about women and romance into one album, then "Battle Studies" (Columbia), released on Tuesday, is it -- "one record about one thing," Mr. Mayer said. It's claustrophobic and, for him, somewhat dark. Most of the songs are skeptical about love, and about lovers, and about anyone looking and passing judgment from the outside in.
Yet for someone as articulate and transfixing about relationships and their discontents as Mr. Mayer is in person, in his music he takes a simpler route. Though in the last three years many things about his life have changed, not much about his records has.]
Punishment, shame, guilt, disappointment, reproach, reprimand and persecution? Hey, John - can I borrow a tampon? It sounds like you know what it's like to be a woman! Welcome to the world of wildly different double standards for men, women and sex. Too bad Mayer has chosen a career as a "musician" - sounds like we've got a real drama queen on our hands. Oh, and by the way, if you're feeling so guilty about something you've done, perhaps it's a sign that you shouldn't be doing it in the first place. Just a thought.
We've all done it - and the last couple we'd expect to refrain from an old-fashioned backslide would be Jude Law and Sienna Miller. We know those two horndogs couldn't both be working on Broadway (albeit separate productions) and not hookup! The dirty details, via NY Daily News Gatecrasher:
[Jude Law and Sienna Miller have been insisting that they're "just friends," but they certainly looked like more than pals during the wee hours of Thursday night. The former lovebirds arrived together at The Box after their respective Broadway performances - Jude is starring in "Hamlet" and Sienna is lighting up the stage in "After Miss Julie" - and a spy at the lower East Side hot spot saw the two get more and more cozy as the night wore on.
"They came in together and got a table with a few friends around 1 a.m.," the source dished. "At one point, Jude ordered shots for the two of them, and he was egging her on to take one. They were laughing a lot and whispering to each other - it looked like they were genuinely having a good time."
And perhaps Jude's former lady love will make the notorious playboy settle down again - our spy continued that although several females approached the table to get the actor's attention, he only had eyes for Sienna.
"Jude's a regular at The Box and a lot of people know him there," the source said. "So he had a ton of people coming up to say hi to him, many of them female, but he really only seemed interested in Sienna." So much so, in fact, that at one point he brought the actress to meet another group of friends, and led her through the crowded club by the hand.
"It looked like he wanted people to see that they were together," the partygoer dished. Reps for Law have previously admitted that although they have indeed seen each other while living in New York, no romance has been rekindled. But our source begs to differ. "They certainly looked like more than just friends," the spy insisted, noting that they both disappeared around 3:30 a.m.]
I believe every word - and then some. Both Jude and Sienna are notoriously horny little bastards. What's more comforting than going where you've already been before? It's like a visit to Grandma's house - only with nookie instead of cookies.
The following story is something I could have lived a lifetime without knowing, so naturally I have to share. Do you want to think about Hugh Hefner having sex? Neither do I, but here's a rather detailed story about that very topic. Ben Wa details, courtesy of Hollyscoop:
[Hugh Hefner has made a killing throughout his lifetime on sex, but having sex nearly killed him. The 83-year-old admits that he nearly died choking on a sex toy while in bed with a group of girlfriends. He revealed: "What is the closest I've come to death? There was a moment when I was having sex with four Playmates and I almost swallowed a Ben Wa ball."
At his age, Hef admits that it's becoming increasing difficult to leave his bed so he prefers to spend most of his time there taking care of as many tasks as he possibly can. He added: "My most treasured possession is my rotating round bed. I don't have dinner parties - I eat my dinner in bed. I relax with my girls in bed, just watching a movie and having a good time. If I had to dress up in fancy dress, I'd wear my pajamas."]
Every day that you don't swallow a Ben Wa ball is so precious. Make every day count, y'all! Meanwhile, has anyone been following the new version of The Girls Next Door? Congratulations to the twins, Kristina and Karissa Shannon, for make Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson look like smart and interesting individuals. Watching those nineteen-year olds bray like donkeys does not a good show make.

Jessica Simpson is attempting to scold Perez Hilton for "attacking" her family. The only problem is that neither one is bright enough to pull off a verbal scuffle. If anything, poking at Perez will only provoke him. Think he's cruel to the Simpson family now? Wait until he's told what not to do - like a two-year old with a discarded toy, that will become his favorite the moment it's threatened to be discarded. Details, via Us Weekly:
[Jessica Simpson is coming to her family's defense once again. The 29-year-old singer -- who called Melrose Place "crap" after her younger sister Ashlee was canned -- is now going after celeb blogger Perez Hilton, who poked fun at her nephew Bronx.
On Friday -- Bronx's first birthday -- Perez wrote: "It's been one year since Asslee pushed Bronx Mowgli through her vayjayjay and it's all the family is talking about!" He then ended his post by calling Bronx a "poor lil' thing" who "doesn't stand a chance!!!"
Simpson wasn't amused. She Twittered later that day: "Does perez hilton..whatever his name really is..have no heart at all?Don't ever attack my family again.Sad to know u hate so deeply.Sad 4 U"
Her spirits seemed to improve a short time later. "I challenge everyone to save up for a flt [ed note: flight] to somewhere you have always wanted to go. Get inspired beyond boundries [sic]," she wrote. "Find something waiting!"]
Jessica's "help" often causes more harm, but it's sweet that she's trying. Perez has yet to respond to Jessica's demand - look for something to appear on Twitter within minutes. If bad press is still good press, look for the Simpson sisters to receive very good press from Hilton soon!
A race to change diapers is the latest ridiculous rumor from the Jennifer Lopez/ Marc Anthony camp. Lopez drives me nuts, but this story was so hilarious that I had to go for the reprint. Here it is, courtesy of Showbiz Spy:
[Is Jennifer Lopez's marriage to husband Marc Anthony on the rocks? Insiders claim the couple - who married in June 2004 - constantly argue over how to raise their 18-month-old twins Max and Emme.
"They're always arguing over the kids," said one insider. "Jen often ends up in tears, because she usually has to back down and let Marc have his way." Lopez and Anthony were spotted at a recent Dolphins game in Miami arguing over who could change the twins' diapers the fastest.
"Jennifer and Marc got into an argument over who could change diapers the fastest," a source told the National Enquirer earlier this month. "When the twins' diapers need changing at the same time at home, Jennifer takes Emme, Marc grabs Max and they have timed challenges. When they had a changing race in their box at the football game, Jennifer totally beat Marc!"]
Well, at least we know who wears the Louboutins in the family! I actually believe these two would compete over the smallest little thing - they both have equal amounts of free time and testosterone to spur them on!
The marriage made in hell may come to pass once more. That's right, fairytale couple Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil are rumored to be getting hitched - again! Where else can those two score quality drugs drama, if not from each other? And just in time for the holidays. At least it will give Amy's dad, Mitch Winehouse, something to talk about other than his daughter's boobs. Details, via Hollyscoop:
[Nothing Amy Winehouse does surprises us, but this one takes the cake. Apparently Amy has asked her ex-husband, junkie Blake Fielder-Civil, to marry her--again.
According to Britain's News of the World newspaper, Blake told a friend: "We both know we've only ever been divorced on paper. This is the right thing to do. We've been talking on the phone five or six times a day. On Friday she told me she was going to put the engagement ring on. It's the engagement ring I gave Amy the first time. I think it cost ÂŁ2,000 from Tiffany. She told me she wanted to get married again. I feel so happy."
Oh it gets better! Apparently they have to wait until February to get remarried because Blake isn't legally allowed to return to London until then.]
Take this news with a grain of salt (not heroin). This quotes seem suspiciously accurate, which means the "source" could have made a tiny profit in order to sellout a situation that didn't even take place. Watching Amy piss away her life has been one of the most frustrating things I've ever seen. People loving people who are toxic for them is unfortunately an all too common story. But to be gifted with such an enourmous talent and choose to make nothing of it? That is truly a mystery. Good luck, Amy - you're going to need it.
We've all seen the Demi Moore W cover by now - and, for the record, it's freakin' airbrushed. A four year old could figure that out, but Demi has taken to Twitter to deny this fact. Frankly I don't know what all the fuss is about - she looks fantastic regardless. It's not as if anyone expects a magazine cover to be a one hundred percent natural representation of any celebrity. Nevertheless, Demi can't handle the rumors and it's causing quite a stir. Does she really believe she only has one hip, or is this just a clever way to get more mileage out her moment in the W sun? Knowing Moore, I'm going with the latter. Details, via Celebitchy:
[There was a lot of buzz over the fact that Demi Moore seemed to be missing a chunk of her thigh in her photo on the cover of W Magazine. Demi is a very thin woman, but her hip is probably not a few inches smaller than her thigh. In her defense, Moore posted a photo to Twitter that she claimed was the original, unretouched version used for W. It showed her hip pushed in like on the cover picture, and she wrote "Here is the original image people my hips were not touched don't let these people bullshit you!" Moore also retweeted a response from a fan that said "its just the way u have ur hip kinda swung to one side..y can noone see this!?"
W Magazine admitted the image was altered but said it was "nothing out of the ordinary." The photographer that shot Demi for W says that of course the photo is retouched, and calls it a "blooper" that belongs on the "art department wall of shame." Photographer Anthony Citrano was kind enough to e-mail us with his comments and says that he'll donate $5,000 to the charity of Demi's choice if she can prove that the photo she posted is the original.]
Celebitchy received an email directly from Anthony Citrano, the photographer of Demi's W shoot, insisting that the picture is indeed slightly doctored. You can click here to read his missive. You know it's bad when even the photographer is willing to sell you out - it's like a date gone horribly wrong. Too bad that a beautiful photo is now a source of controversy for Mrs. Kutcher, but I don't know why she can't be real about the help she receives with her natural beauty. It ain't no big thang!
Is anyone surprised to lean that Khloe Odom (nee Kardashian) behaved badly at her first Laker's game as a "wife"? This girl was groomed to be a bitch - and faux-mance is certainly not going to make a dent in all those years of conditioning. Though K-hole believed she'd bartered her vagina for courtside Lakers seats, it looks like Lamar has yet to hold up his end of the bargain. Read the drama, courtesy of Celebitchy and the Chicago Sun-Times:
[Boy those Kardashian women sure know how to ingratiate themselves to a group of people. If the best way to ingratiate yourself is to act like bitchy, catty high school girls. Khloe Kardashian - now Mrs. Lamar Odom - took her mom Kris Jenner with her to her first Laker game once she got hitched. However upon arrival Khloe was extremely dismayed to learn that she was not upgraded to courtside seats upon the completion of her nuptials, and instead was forced to sit with the other Laker wives. This naturally resulted in a lot of passive-aggressive loud whispering.
Sounds like things were a little tense last week, the first time reality TV star Khloe Kardashian attended a Los Angeles Lakers game at L.A.'s Staples Center since she married Lakers star Lamar Odom. Seems Kardashian -- joined by her mom and manager, Kris Jenner -- was very unhappy to learn she didn't get courtside seats. Guess the new Mrs. Odom assumed she'd be plunked down right next to Jack Nicholson!
At any rate, Ms. Khloe huffily sat herself in the section reserved for the Lakers' wives -- where several of the other spouses were overheard ''stage whispering" less-than-complimentary cracks about Kardashian and her family's TV antics. Camp Kardashian denies any snit fits at the game, but one nearby observer claims both Khloe and Kris voiced snide comments about Laker wives. Kardashian supposedly was irked seeing Kobe Bryant's wife, Vanessa, accompanied by bodyguards as she went to the ladies room. When Bryant heard about the complaint, she reportedly just rolled her eyes and added her own ''stage whisper" to the chorus of Laker wives' comments. [From the Chicago Sun-Times]
It's so hard not to make a "Nobody puts Khloe in the corner!" joke right now. Which is totally where she belongs. I'm sorry, but if you kinda/sorta/maybe marry a Laker and you get to sit with the other Laker wives, you should be damn grateful. I'm sure those are still fantastic seats. Khloe and Lamar were still hammering out the details of their prenup weeks after their wedding ceremony. They were all evasive and vague about it with their denials, so it's still unclear whether they're union is legit. If I were the person on the Laker's staff responsible for tickets, I'd be like, "Show me your wedding license and I'll see what I can do. " Oh, but in a passive-aggressive whisper with lots of barely stifled giggles. Please, ladies.]
The best part is that we'll most likely be clued into the "stage whispers" soon - you know Khloe doesn't go anywhere these days without a microphone taped between her cleavage. Bring on the drama!
Sandra Bullock might not be the most scintillating actress on the market, but she's created a long career for herself by acting very sweet. She's got several movies in the pipeline for 2010, though she almost skipped her role in The Blind Side. There's a small rumor that she might now be up for an Oscar; though it's another year of slim-pickings in the women's category for Best Actress - and another great year for men. No surprises! Here's a few details of why Sandy almost skipped her headlining role, via ShowBiz Spy:
[Sandra Bullock almost didn't make her new movie The Blind Side - because she kept turning down the role! The Hollywood superstar -- who plays a wealthy woman who takes in a homeless teenager who goes on to play college football in the movie, based on on a novel by Michael Lewis -- admits she was worried about "messing up" the part.
"I don't even remember saying yes to the movie," Sandra revealed. "I kept turning it down. Not because I didn't like it, but because I didn't know how to do it. I didn't know how to make it the story that it deserves to be. I couldn't bring to the role what it needed. These are the kinds of roles that actresses can mess up, and that's one of the reasons I didn't want to step into it! I didn't know how to make it as good as the story. I'm glad I did it. It's still a scary thought for me. I don't know how I did it, but I had a lot of time to prepare for it."]
I admit that I'm a sucker for Sandra - her sweet nature won me over years ago. I was one of those popcorn-munching fans that enjoyed The Proposal and I always root for her in "real life" as well. However, I ran across an interesting article on Gawker/Defamer that raises a curious question - why is Bullock so famous? Check it out:
[She's made more bombs than the Krupp Arms Works and yet Hollywood keeps giving her the keys to its kingdom. This weekend, Sandra Bullock is back again in The Blind Side. When she burst into public consciousness, stealing the show in Speed 15 years ago, Bullock was hailed as the thinking man's starlet, a smart, tough wise-cracking throwback to Jean Arthur or Katherine Hepburn. And the residual good will of her "not a bimbo" persona still lingers on.
Well, no performer has done more to squander the public's good will than Sandra Bullock. In the decade and a half since Speed, she has accumulated a lifetime Rotten Tomatoes score of 28 (and that is helped by Oscar winner Crash in which she was only part of an ensemble.) Reading through the list of her films is like visiting the site of some epic, senseless battle and reciting the names of the fallen.
Read aloud with us then, the list of the films Sandra Bullock has inflicted upon society since her great moment (with Rotten Tomatoes scores): All About Steve (6), The Proposal (43), Premonition (8), The Lake House (36), Miss Congeniality 2: Armed & Fabulous (14), Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (44), Murder by Numbers (30), Miss Congeniality (40), 28 Days (30), Gun Shy (24), â€¨Forces of Nature (46), Practical Magic (21), Hope Floats (23), Speed 2: Cruise Control (2), In Love and War (12), Two If by Sea (12), The Net (30),
Simply awe-inspiring. Note that Bullock has appeared in three films that achieved Tomatoes scores of under ten, a fate that should not befall any actor more than once. (Nicole Kidman, for comparison sake, has made plenty of clunkers in her time but has never been in a movie that scored below 19.)]
Click here to read Defamer's article in it's entirety. It leads me to wonder how far a good attitude can take a woman. Is Bullock being rewarded her sweetness as much as Angelina Jolie used to be punished for her formerly overt sexuality? Does making other women comfortable equal bank?
Jay-Z knows which side his bread is buttered on! The rapper recently attended the famed Victoria's Secret fashion show - but refused to walk the red carpet out of respect for his wife, Beyonce (aka Sasha Fierce). He even went as far as to request a private booth for the after-party that would keep him away from the luscious models. Details, via Page Six:
[Jay-Z refused to be photographed with the Victoria's Secret models for fear of upsetting his wife, BeyoncĂ©. The rap icon would not walk the red carpet or pose with the girls at Thursday's fashion show and after-party at M2, thrown by Microsoft's Bing. A source told Page Six: "Victoria's Secret begged, but Jay-Z refused . . . he explained it was out of respect for BeyoncĂ©." At M2, he was given a private booth so he could keep his distance from models including Alessandra Ambrosio, Selita Ebanks, Chanel Iman, Miranda Kerr and Heidi Klum. But most other men at the party were clamoring to get near the girls. Marisa Miller was given a mother-and-daughter team of bodyguards to keep the crowds of admirers away. Guests included Harvey Weinstein, Sir Richard Branson, and the Black Eyed Peas, while "Saturday Night Live" stars Seth Myers and Jason Sudeikis were spotted doing laps of the club to check out the girls.]
Call me crazy, but wouldn't it be easier not to attend the function at all? Doth the man protest too much or is this a case of a well-behaved husband? I love Jay-Z, so I'm going to buy his motivation to respect Beyonce - even if she personally drives me nuts. It's refreshing to think these two could be happily married. Meanwhile, let's get more dirt on the stars who did get naughty - hello!
Eddie Cibrian is no cheater, y'all - at least not when it comes to LeAnn Rimes. He was happy to have allegedly cheated on estranged wife Brandi Glanville with Scheana Marie and LeAnn, but Rimes is special so he wouldn't do that to her! So adamant is Eddie about his fidelity to LeAnn that he actually sued Life & Style for reporting that Cibrian was still seeing former mistress Scheana while romancing Rimes. Aww, it's nice to see true profit love reigning supreme. A summary of the current events, courtesy of Crazy Days & Nights:
[Eddie Cibrian must really want that gravy train to keep on rolling because he sued Life & Style for their article that he was cheating on LeAnn Rimes with a woman he had previously cheated on his wife with. Oh, and of course he also cheated on his wife with LeAnn and of course both women knew he was married when they decided to help him cheat. That is a lot of cheating. Oh, and of course LeAnn cheating on her husband with Eddie.â€¨Do I think Eddie was cheating on LeAnn? I don't know. It wouldn't shock me but this his meal ticket and so I don't think he would throw it away quite that quickly. I do know that if he continues with this suit that he better be prepared to answer a million questions about his sex life and that if he cheated in his marriage with any other women it will all come out.â€¨If he didn't cheat on LeAnn and only cheated on his wife with LeAnn and Scheana (above) then he will be ok. Of course if there are two women there are probably more.]
Generally history proves that a leopard doesn't change his spots, so I don't know why this situation would be any different. Perhaps true love has conquered all and Cibrian's philandering ways are behind him - or not...

Good thing Twilight is all the rage and Robert Pattinson can't walk down the street safely anymore - it makes things soooo much easier for Zac Efron. Thank god, because I've been really concerned about Zac's quality of life. In case you've forgotten about him, Efron is here to remind you - he was a hunk first, damnit. Here is the hilarious quote, via Showbiz Spy:
[Zac Efron insists he's happy that Robert Pattinson came on the showbiz scene -- because now he can have a life! The High School Musical actor says he's delighted to give way to the Twilight hunk because Pattinson deflects the attention away from him. "It's great because now I don't get so much female attention," Efron said.]
Yes, every 22 year-old male wishes for less female attention. Naturally. We all know his girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens, is more than enough woman for him! He's already got his mom on condom purchasing duty, so he's really got his plate free to concentrate on that acting career. Get 'em, Zac!
After arguing with the owner and some employees, she managed to up the goodies to $2,000 but threw a diva fit when they wouldn't let her walk away with $15,000 worth of merchandise. She eventually stormed out of the store with $2,000 worth of stuff, but needless to say, Kitson is not happy with Lindsay! A spokesperson for Kitson tells Fox News, "We're actually really offended. The tables have turned and now we're the customer. We spent $50,000 on her leggings line, but she hasn't come to the store in three years, and she didn't even do a personal appearance. She should have brought cookies for the staff to thank them for selling her leggings because she does nothing. We don't know if we'll continue to carry them."
Lindsay's leggings line is the only bread and butter she has right now. Her career is at a standstill, her tanning line went bust, and she really doesn't have any other means of making money.]
Okay, well Kitson might have been a little delusional if they were expecting Lohan to bake cookies for their staff. I shudder to think what Lindsay would consider an appropriate mix for baked goods at this point. A cocaine chocolate chip blend? At any rate, it is fair that they would expect her to help promote her clothing line. It's not like Linds is so delusional as to expect that people are going to continue to give her stuff... Oh, wait.

The report estimated Rocco to be worth $627 million dollars (ÂŁ376 million) before he reaches 30. Celebrity expert Mark Frith said: "Rocco will earn a fortune from his mother and a fair bit from dad. But it's the other three rankings that power him to the number one place." Cruz Beckham is second place on the list, but don't feel too bad for him. He'll still inherit and/or make more money by his 30th birthday than most of us will in our lifetimes.
Also on the list are British royals, Prince William and Prince Harry, who came ninth and tenth on the list - compiled by Cartoon Network - with estimated fortunes of just under ÂŁ200 million each.]
Don't quote me on this, as it's far from a professional survey, but I'm going to go out on a limb to tell you that Suri Cruise and the Jolie-Pitt children also stand to be extraordinarily wealthy. Crazy, I know. Above is the famed Cruz Beckham breakdance performance at Madison Square Garden. If you haven't seen this yet, you must treat yourself. It's clear that Cruz is going to be the breakout star of the whole lot - no joke.
The 44-year-old brunette's "amazing story" is also expected to reveal details about best friend Kate Moss and her first husband, Spandau Ballet singer Gary Kemp, who is the father of her 19-year-old son Finlay. Publisher John Blake has revealed that Sadie has sold her memoirs for a "five-figure sum".
He said: "You couldn't wish for more in an autobiography. We haven't discussed the finer detail, but we would expect it to contain pretty much everything. Sadie has a very good sense of humour and is very self-deprecating."
Shortly after Sadie and Jude separated, the 'Alfie' actor started dating Sienna Miller - who was reportedly a rival of Sadie's supermodel friend Kate at the time. Sadie - who runs fashion label Frost French with her friend Jemima French - is also expected to talk about her bohemian childhood as the daughter of psychedelic artist David Vaughan.]
Spandau Ballet, Kate Moss and Jude Law in one wild-n-wooly tell-all? My only regret is that this won't be out in time for Christmas. I guess I'll have to settle for Bret Michaels' Roses & Thorns (which did not arrive on my birthday - ahem.)
[Photo Credit: Jude Law and Sadie Frost, in "happier" times - or, at very least, before the release of the tell-all.]
Ty Burr of The Boston Globe remarks: "Sorry, girls: The thrill is gone." He says that "where the first film's director, Catherine Hardwicke, plugged into [author Stephenie] Meyer's vision of supernatural teenage lust with abandon, Chris Weitz is stuck with a sequel that's a morning-after mope-fest." Burr also says that the film favors werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner) than vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson). "When he's onscreen, Pattinson's Edward is all emo posturing under a trembling bouffant - the actor suddenly seems to be embarrassed to be here," says Burr. "Lautner's performance, by contrast, has the warmth of an actual human."
But Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times says Lautner and Kristen Stewart (who plays Bella) have no heat: "The connection between these two is so self-evidently non-romantic that it turns out not to be much of a diversion."
USA Today's Claudia Puig agrees, saying the the Bella-Edward romance is a bore and that "the pace picks up" once Jacob and his pals turn into werewolves. She gave the film 2.5 out of 4 stars.
Variety writes that ladies hoping to gaze at Pattinson the big screen " may be disappointed by Pattinson's reduced presence" in the sequel, "as his Edward appears predominantly in mumbling visions until a cliffhanger that brazenly sets up the next episode."]
Clearly I'm not the only one who didn't read anything after the first Twilight novel! Talk about stating the obvious. Perhaps I need a career change. The critics aren't the only ones ready to smash New Moon - the Vatican is peeved as well. The church has slammed the flick as a "deviant moral vacuum." Hey Vatican, does hypocrisy taste like wine? Just curious. In a surprise twist, my thinly veiled smokescreen has been blown away. My offer to take my thirteen year-old niece to see New Moon has been turned down! She says she thinks the movie will be boring. Is everyone a critic? Now I don't even have my teen shield - I'm gonna have to own up to wanting to see these vamps, though I have some pretty awesome company lined up in cousin Amy. If the movie sucks as much as they say, at least we'll get to enjoy the popcorn!
Peterkin tells Usmagazine.com that a beard allows a man "to change his public face. Most men growing facial hair around his age are being ironic. It's a bit of a wink of the eye; 'I'm not taking this too seriously and nor should you.'" Angelina Jolie's man -- who has often sported facial hair -- also may be "tired of being a part of one of the most beautiful couples in the world. He wants to try a new look."
Although Peterkin tells Us the look may appear "desperate on another man's face," Pitt's facial structure makes it work. "With a face like Brad's, you can do almost anything," he tells Us. "It is such a well put-together, symmetrical face."
But celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger isn't a fan. "I don't love gray facial hair, especially on someone as handsome as Brad," she tells Us. Although she says "he has some reasoning behind his look," she suggests that he trim it and dye it all brown. Still, she tells Us, "I would prefer for him to shave it completely."]
I love that even when there isn't a story about Brad, a non-story takes it's place. It's almost like the goatee has a life of it's own - if only those chin hairs could talk! I suspect they'd say something like, "The bald eagle has landed."
The paper claims that at the film's after-party, held at a Hawaiian-themed club called Kanaloa, Efron got "a round of rum shots" for his co-stars and then footed the bill for some $165-a-pop concoctions called the "Treasure Chest," which the paper describes as "a potent brew of peach schnapps and brandy, topped with a bottle of bubbly."
Reportedly all liquored up, Efron allegedly "grabbed a Hawaiian lei garland, flung it around his neck, jumped up on the bamboo tables and started busting his moves to Beyonce and the Beach Boys." Added a so-called source, "He was having a great time and was the life and soul of the party."
We'd say we're sorry that we missed it, but it actually NEVER happened. A source, who was with Efron at the after-party, tells Gossip Cop that the star, jet-lagged from flying in earlier that day, hung out a little bit with his director Richard Linklater and co-stars Claire Danes and Christian McKay, but "left early" - no bender, no booty shaking.
And Efron's rep confirms to Gossip Cop that the story was "completely made up," and that her client called it a night after a short stay at the club because he had to get up early the next day for press interviews.]
I thought the Mirror story sounded suspicious for several reasons: 1.) He's not that imaginative. 2.) Celeb reps always tell the truth, so clearly this incident never took place. 3.) "The Treasure Chest" sounds waaay to manly for him - I picture Efron as more of a "French Tickler" kind of fellow.
Winehouse's dad Mitch, the one who was just raving about his daughters tits a couple weeks ago, is talking again. According to Mitch, "It wasn't because she had a cold. She just had a little (points to his own chest) leaky something or other." Question: Do you think Amy Winehouse's dad is just a wee bit too involved in the status of his daughter's breasts?]
In my opinion? Yes! I think she's done an fine job traumatizing herself - she doesn't need any help. Let's go back to speculating about whether or not she supplements her diet with cough syrup. I'm much more comfortable there.

Miss Moss made the comment in an interview with fashion website Women's Wear Daily. The saying is believed to have originated from some early WeightWatchers members but is now commonly used on numerous slimming websites and blogs around the world. It is not the first time that Miss Moss has come under fire. In 2005, she lost a string of lucrative deals with fashion houses H&M, Chanel and Burberry after it was alleged that she had been photographed snorting cocaine.]
Well, I for one am shocked that Kate's small daughter already has body issues. With all that healthy non-eating and 24/7 mom-partying that she's seen since birth? Man, that kid really needs to grow a pair - but not boobs, those are gross.
Check out the hilarious interview above where Miley Cyrus says she's "having none" of this Twilight/vampire bullshit. I think the only reason she's not riding this train is because she hasn't been invited to participate. Notice how she doesn't say the same thing about Sex... and the City. Ahem! Here's a few details, via Us Weekly:
[Don't bother asking Miley Cyrus if she's on Team Edward or Team Jacob. She says she doesn't care for Twilight and has no interest in seeing New Moon. "I've never seen it and nor will I ever," Cyrus, 16, said recently during an interview with Cleveland radio station Q92.
What can't she stand about the hit film series? "I don't believe in it," she says. "I don't like vampires. ... I don't like the wolf that pops out of the screen when I'm watching my TV at night. I don't like it. I don't want anything to do with it. I don't like the shirts. I don't like any of it."
Cyrus said she feels odd not being among the throngs of people rushing to see New Moon on Friday. "I feel really lame because everyone's, like, so excited," Cyrus said. "I'm like, 'Don't even talk about it.'"]
I don't like Miley's mug popping out of my television set, but it doesn't seem to shutting her up.
How about a bowl of titties for lunch? I know my boyfriend wouldn't mind - and apparently that's what on the menu at Carl's Junior. What could make some dee-licious fast food even better? The presence of a Kardashian, naturally. Yes, Kim K found a way to steal a little thunder from all the press her sisters have been generating. A quickie marriage, followed by a whirlwind of talk shows (Khloe) and a surprise pregnancy by a jackass (Kourtney) pale in comparison to Kim whipping out her tom toms to hawk salad. Details, via Scandalist:
[You thought it was sexy when Audrina Patridge put some meat in her mouth when she was in that bikini, or when Paris Hilton soaked up a Bentley and then bit into a big juicy burger? Well, now Carls Jr. is kicking it up a notch and getting in bed with Kim Kardashian! The reality star is the latest celebrity pitchwoman for Carls Jr. - this time pushing their Carl's Jr. Premium Salads.
"I'm always down for a burger. I love them and I eat them," Kim says. "But this is the first commercial they've ever done for anything but a burger. The salads are healthy and it totally fits what I'm about right now."
According to Kim, even though her ad is for a salad, it is just as piping hot if not hotter than those steamy burger ads. "I told them about my life and how I'm such a neat freak, but I love to have bed picnics - I put out my towel and eat in bed, and then when it gets all messy I take a hot bubble bath after to wash it off. You'll see that sexy wow factor in this one!]
How she can spew this nonsense with a straight face, I'll never know. Perhaps I'm not giving enough kredit to the Kardashian clan as a whole - turns out that family is chock full of actors! I personally think the photo is quite unflattering. Too much focus was put on her enormous clevage, while not enough attention was paid to her posture. She looks like sweat-pant clad hausfrau who's ready to attack the Fritos with the television remote. Chalk one up for Paris Hilton, as their feud kontinues to heat up!
Damn, it's good to be a gangster. Levi Johnston is pimping large. He and his fay little kerchief rule, don't you know? Oh, appearantly you don't! Let me fill you in, courtesy of Litely Salted (with cited sources):
[Levi Johnston flew out to Los Angeles earlier this week for last night's GQ "Men of the Year" party, and made a huge assy spectacle of himself at JFK airport, refusing to stand in line with "the commoners" (including Seinfeld's Jason Alexander) and insisted to be seated before everyone else.
A spy on his American Airlines flight told Page Six: "He then made a big show of getting on first. He was seated in the front row of first class, looking like he was born to be there and waiting for some recognition. Jason Alexander was quietly sitting behind him." (Source)
It was a different story when he actually got to the star-studded GQ event, however, because as it turns out nobody gives a shit about some punk-ass 15-minutes-of-fame governor's-daughter-impregnating redneck from Alaska:
Levi, who had on a vest, yellow pocket square and what appeared to be pancake makeup, wandered around the party with both his manager Tank (wearing a diamond earring) and a second beefy gentleman (wearing an earpiece). And no one cared. Levi was largely ignored by other guests as he wandered to get a soda (he's underage) and he checked his Blackberry while Tank hit up the buffet. An hour later, they were gone. (Source)]
I adore Levi's willingness to act as the public thorn in Sarah Palin's side - but baby doll's gotta take it down notch. Don't spoil this for me, Levi. I'm counting on you.
Brad Pitt didn't show up for an apperance that would have added $5 million to his already overflowing pocketbook. Rumor has it he was confirmed to attend the Grand Prix Ball Abu Dhabi, but instead opted to stay in L.A. with Angelina Jolie and their six children. The replacement gig? Taking the kids trick-or-treating. Details, via Hollyscoop:
[When you're as famous and rich as Brad Pitt, you can afford to turn down public appearances. But Brad recently turned down $5 million dollars, yes million, in order to go trick or treating with his kids. Brad was offered $5 million dollar to attend the Grand Prix Ball Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates on October 31, but failed to show up because he was out with Angelina Jolie and their six kids in Los Angeles.
A source told Life & Style magazine: "He's spending more time with the family and doing less of these appearances, even though it's a huge sum of cash." A spokesperson for the event - which featured performances from Beyonce, Aerosmith and Timbaland, and raised money for clean water charity Fresh2o - admitted Brad had been expected to attend and was unsure why he didn't.
James Magee, a rep for Global Event Management, said: "We were told he would be attending as the guest of the Tourism Development and Investment Company. But he was a no-show, and nobody seemed to know why."]
There's no denying that Brad seems to be a good father - but $5 million good? I'm sure he gives up a variety of activities to kick it with his Rainbow Brood, but I feel there's a back-story that's not being shared. And that back-story is called "Angelina was being a bitch and Brad was placating her, again." It sounds like a bestseller! The cash is nice, but that ain't where his bread is buttered - if ya know what I mean...
Here is Carmen Electra's addition to the oeuvre. (Video mildly NSFW) Remember when having a sex tape was a completely shame-inducing, career-ruining event? Naw, me neither. Thanks, Paris Hilton! You are truly an innovator, changing the world one vagina at a time.
Star to dollar power, activate! Forbes Magazine has revealed, in one of their all-powerful listy-lists, that Will Ferrell is currently the most overpaid actor in Hollywood. Forbes can suck it. What's all the worry with this "profit" bullshit? What about audience satisfaction combined with the fact that Will is absolutely adored by all? Does that not count for anything with you assholes? Details, via Hollyscoop:
[Being on a Forbes is usually really flattering, but Will Ferrell got the short end of the stick when he was named the most overpaid star by the magazine. The magazine calculated how much studio bosses earn per dollar paid to the actor, and clearly, they're overpaying Will. After Will's last few movies bombed at the box office, his rate of return dropped to $3.29 for every dollar he requested as his fee. While Will was named the most overpaid star, actor Shia LaBeouf was named the "Best Actor for the Buck" making studio's $160 for every dollar he was paid.]
I think far too much credit has been paid to Shia "Douche" LaBeouf. His "acting" abilities were not exactly what pulled in the big bucks this past year. If anything, kudos should be awarded to the enormous Transformers budget, crafty green screen tricks and Megan Fox's ass. In related news, Carmen Electra has a sex tape! Of course she does. Perhaps she and Will should team up for a film. Then we'll talk about your precious profit ratio, Forbes.
Guitarist Brad Whitford said: "I suspect there's a lot more going on than we know about. He has a well-documented history of drug abuse, and I find myself very suspicious. I haven't seen him do this or have any personal knowledge, but the isolation is very typical of addictive behavior, and his - what I call - irrational behavior."
Drummer Joey Kramer also urged Tyler to seek help and "get healthy." Joey said: "Steven has made some poor choices as of late, and he's got some bad influences around him, and I think that for the most part he's his own worst enemy. I just really hope that Steven puts the focus on Steven and gets healthy."
A rep for Tyler refused to comment on the drug allegations and instead insists that Tyler is busy writing a book. Something is definitely not right with Tyler and his band members and we're not going to jump to conclusions, but we sure hope he's staying clean.]
Perhaps Tyler is busy writing a book about drug use and what he's doing right now is research. Yeah, that explains it.
Now Kate 2.0 has been deposed by TLC in their case against Jon for breach of contract. TLC scolded Jon over the summer for breaking the contract's "moral clause," and his fling with Major was part of that. This note could also be part of the evidence that Jon was trying to circumvent TLC by arranging for his own media appearances, something he needed to get the network's ok with first. Kate also probably needs the cash from selling the note to Radar. I would bet that she hasn't secured employment yet.
TLC is probably going to cream Jon in court. His other wronged ex girlfriend, Stephanie Santoro, has also been deposed by TLC, as has Michael Lohan. All three of these people - Major, Santoro, and Lohan - have spoken out against Jon to the press so you know they're going to love helping TLC with their case. Jon's case goes to court in Maryland on December 14.
Betty Confidential reports that Jon's paparazzi buddies could also get deposed by TLC. They have a source who says he regularly calls them up to hang out and chat and that he'll tell them pretty much anything about his life. "He moans about Kate and his messy life and is pretty willing to commiserate with anyone who will listen." That'll cost him.]
Nothing too surprising here - we've had ample opportunity at this point to discover what an idiot Jon can be. Although, if you're looking for a good laugh, you should click on the Radar Online link above to see the hilarious hand scratched note that will cost Gosselin his nuts. I don't know what the hurry was - she doesn't look that good in bed! Someone who has been suspiciously quiet of late? Hailey Glassman (Jon's supposed girlfriend) - which would make me pretty nervous, if I were Jon. Though I swear I can hear Kate Gosselin cackling from here...
"hahaha x17online posted photos of NOT ME inside someone's bathroom...â€¨All negativity & bad karma..nice try though kids-u should do a deal with michael lohan sr :) a match made in heaven! perfect, he's religious!â€¨Thank you for keeping my company!"
I don't mean to brag but I'm pretty sure I know what Lindsay Lohan looks like. And what she looks like is the ratty haired, post-apocalyptic truck-stop hooker in that bathroom with coke in it.]
Well, I didn't see Lindsay too clearly in that bathroom - Avril is also blonde, by the way - but X17 catches Lohan leaving the house the next morning, so odds that it was her have been upped dramatically. Also, Avril's hair is real versus synthetic. (That's the one nice thing I can say about Lavigne.) The glimpse of bleached blonde in the video looked like a hot mess - so, yeah, it was Lindsay. Case closed. Oh, one more thing: Lindsay's Tweet regarding Michael Sr. prompted me to remember that there is a Michael Jr. (Michael Douglas Lohan, Junior. Jesus, Dina. Really?) It's amazing that he's able and willing to stay out of the Lohan limelight. I wouldn't want to be associated with those nut-bags either.
The sites even have an unnamed source quoted as saying, "Tom is very excited about taking 'Mission: Impossible' in a new direction and he sees Katie as a big part of that." That same so-called source efficiently explains, "They have wanted to work together for a while now... This might give them a chance to have some fun both as a couple and as hero and villainess."
Like "Mission: Impossible," there's a lot of mystery surrounding this information, including where the heck it came from. To date, Cruise hasn't signed on to reprise his role as Ethan Hunt, and a rep for Holmes tells Gossip Cop these reports are "totally false." Too bad these inaccurate stories can't also self-destruct.]
Another Mission: Impossible film would be like beating a dead horse - and it wouldn't do Katie any favors either! Although it might be fun for her to play a villainess opposite Tom - think of all the pent-up rage she could finally vent. I take it back - this faux film might be the perfect opportunity for Holmes to nab an Oscar. Leave it to Cruise to shut her down... again.

A source said, "Paris is furious that Kim got her start by hanging out in Hollywood with her -- and now, the Kardashians have it all, the reality shows, the magazine covers, the big appearance fees and promotional deals. She used to command $100,000 for club appearances, but now Kim is the hottest girl - and they aren't friends anymore. The magazines are bidding around $300,000 for Kourtney's baby shower and baby pictures...and Khloe's wedding brought in record ratings for E!"
In a move to show that she's recession friendly, Paris has decided to tone down her image and try not to make it look like she's spending what I make in a year, daily. The source added, "Paris has realized that standing for excess in a recession doesn't appeal. The Kardashian girls seem more real, and girls identify with them more. She's got to ditch the pink Bentley and concentrate on developing herself." So don't be surprised if Paris is getting hitched to Doug soon. It's all part of her plan to regain her celebrity "it" girl status. Because flashing your crotch is so 2003.]
Umm, yeah. I don't know about you, but I'm having an impossible time feeling bad for Paris. She may try to reinvent herself, but I'll have no desire to buy it.
Earlier this week, Lindsay went to Crown Bar with a friend and caused quiet a scene when she was expected to pay her bar tab. "Lindsay stormed into the kitchen and grabbed two bottles of really expensive champagne. She finished both bottles with a friend. When the bartender gave her a bill, she had a meltdown," says the source. "She was yelling at him and screaming profanities at everyone. The bar insisted she pay, so she had to call a friend with her credit-card information."
She left the club around 2:30 a.m. and she was really upset. An onlooker says, "She was crying and wanted to go home. She kept saying 'I don't pay for drinks! This is ridiculous! I'm freaking out!'"]
The times, they are a-changing! I have secretly been rooting for Lindsay to get her career back on track - but I think I'm backing a dark horse at this point... Hell, I'm backing a horse that ain't even in the race anymore!
A Jon Gosselin sex tape might exist. Just typing those words makes me sick to my stomach. How is it possible that someone so ridiculous could have had as many post-marital flings as this man? Is it a sign of our fame hungry culture or does this guy really do it for the ladies? Details, via Litely Salted:
["Tom told me that Jon was secretly videotaped having sex with a woman in Los Angeles in October, and he's seen the tape!" said Stephanie Santoro, Jon's former flame and family nanny. "Tom said people close to Jon put a camera in his hotel room, and paid a girl to flirt with Jon and have sex with him. "He also told me that he saw Jon snort cocaine on more than one occasion, and that the more Jon got into partying, the more cocaine he used!"]
Eww, just like the Frank Gifford scandal from years ago - only, unlike Kathie Lee, I don't think Kate could give a shit were Jon's dick resides. I hope this tape does not get unleashed on the world. Really - what have the rest of us done to deserve this? The good news? Jon might allegedly be "too famous to work" - but at least he could earn some income from porn!
Meanwhile, here are details (via Perez Hilton) on the series finale of Jon & Kate Plus 8 - you know, the show that (unfortunately) made our man with the sticky wicket a household name. The show airs just in time for Thanksgiving. Aww, how sweet!
[It's the end of an era! We're nearing the final episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8, which is set to air on November 23. The soon-to-be divorced couple Jon and Kate Gosselin are reportedly both sitting down to "provide new insights on their recent life events" and discuss "what the future holds for them and their eight children."
It has also been revealed that Kate Plus 8 as a series is a no-go, but there may be "occasional specials" under the new name. TLC is in the development stages for a new show for Kate. The series finale of Jon and Kate Plus 8 will include clips from Kate and the kids' visiting a dairy farm and a firehouse. There will also be the obligatory montage of highlights from the past 5 years. How nice for the family to see the demise of their marriage set to music!]
It's good to know that no matter "how famous" Jon Gosselin gets, he'll never stop being a douche. It's comforting to have that touchstone of reality.
I haven't mentioned James Franco's General Hospital tenure here - mainly because I found it so bizarre that I didn't really know what to say. But it's getting difficult to ignore the fact that James has a serious hard-on for televsion right now. Up next for the actor? A guest spot on 30 Rock. I don't find that choice odd - that's the golden ring for celebrities to have fun with cameos. But an extended contract with a soap opera? I find that puzzling. Most actors struggle to land movie roles (which Franco has accomplished several times over) - so to intentionally throw yourself back into the daily grind seems odd, at best. However, the more research I do on the story, the more interested I become. Here's the scoop on the actor's 30 Rock appearance, via In Touch:
[Jane Krakowski has confirmed the rumors -- James Franco is coming to 30 Rock! According to Jane, who plays ditzy actress Jenna on the NBC hit comedy, the series' creator and star Tina Fey brought the Spider-Man hottie on board after working with him on the movie Date Night. "He and Jenna are set up for an industry type of relationship," Jane explained to In Touch at the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation gala at the New York Marriot Marquis on November 9. Despite their on-screen love being a sham "faux-mance," Jane enjoyed having James on the set. "We just finished our shots together, and he was very lovely. It was great fun to have him, he's a very talented actor!" the blond bombshell added.]
I'm still wondering how Franco's soap opera contract negotiations went down. I picture the casting director hanging up on James' agent the first time, thinking it was all in jest - and pissing herself when the call came back 'round. I'm really interested to see where he goes with this experience. It's fun to see someone of his stature taking chances. Here's a ode to the brilliance that is James, via Go Fug Yourself:
[Franco himself is being tight-lipped about his motives and moving along to 30 Rock without any to-do -- and that's smart, because the speculation is creating way more buzz than it would if we simply discovered he has a beloved old aunt who still drinks from a Luke-and-Laura coffee mug. And in the end, we don't really care about the hows and whys; we're just fascinated that he's here, there, and everywhere. Joining General Hospital, and acting like it's just another gig, displays a ballsy disregard for conventional Hollywood wisdom, and adds a line to his rĂ©sumĂ© that has already generated more discussion than all the Spider-Man movies combined. For any ridicule Franco may get, he's created twice as much intrigue -- making him not only a clever actor, but a versatile and surprising one. So next year, when commencement rolls around again, we hope someone offers Franco the chance to give that speech. It'll probably be a doozy. Especially now that he'll be able to deliver it while staring longingly into middle distance as one perfect tear rolls down his cheek.]
Forgive me for taking so long - I'm totally onboard!
Rumor has it that Josh Duhamel is still texting the stripper he allegedly had sex with after a wild night at a club. Nothing says "I'm sorry" to your spouse like still keeping in touch with the woman you had your dick in. Like I said, Fergie better be sporting some serious jewelry soon! Details, via Crazy Days & Nights:
[Josh Duhamel is an idiot. Either that or he knows that no matter what he does Fergie is going to keep him. Nicole Forrester was on Extra and she went on there to apologize to Fergie and also of course to get some more publicity and money out of all this, but she also did have some more great stuff to share.â€¨â€¨"I thought, 'Nobody's gonna find out. It's not gonna hurt anybody. I'm sorry. I'm sorry that I didn't think of it at the time like I think of it now." Forrester says that Josh wasn't very good in bed. The people at Extra didn't ask if he was well endowed. She says she hasn't stripped since the news broke and won't now because her kids know what she was doing and they are embarrassed and ashamed.â€¨Through all of this though, Josh keeps sending her text messages. One she shared with Extra said, "Wow, UR scared?" Oh, that Josh, he is a charmer isn't he? She replied back to him that she didn't want any part of all this. Uh huh. That is why she keeps going on shows.]
I wasn't aware that when you clear a polygraph, you're allowed to keep saying whatever the hell you want thereafter. Has anyone actually seen those texts and been able to verify that they're coming from Josh? On the other hand, if I'd known it was that easy to get Josh's attention, I would have squeezed myself into a sparkly thong and given it my best shot. Care for a little bump and grind, Mr. Duhamel?

If there's money to be made somewhere, trust a wily advertising agency to help grab it. Yes, someone has finally figured out a way to make some cash from all those celebrity Tweets - and it sounds like the famous folk will be taking a cut of the profit. Check it out, via Gawker:
[When show business spots a corner of public consciousness not colonized by product placement and paid endorsements, its experts spring to work to take care of that.
Twitter has been around for years already, but at last Hollywood has completed its exploitation project. The Wrap reports that one brave company has now led the charge for celebrities wishing to sell their 140 characters. They write: Kim Kardashian, Joel McHale, Dr. Drew, Nicole Richie and husband Joel Madden and Audrina Patridge from "The Hills" are just a few of the names who have endorsement deals for their Twitter accounts. The celebs are signing onto a new viral marketing strategy set up by the Los Angeles-based ad agency Ad.ly, which brokers relationships with the advertisers. Currently, Ad.ly has lined up international companies such as Sony Pictures, NBC, Universal, Microsoft and Nestle for the new platform. Lest you think this is just another example of the celebrity oligarchy shoving its will down the public's throat, the twitter-selling network is only to all interested parties who register on Ad.ly's site.]
It hurts me physically to learn that Joel McHale (The Soup's hilarious host on E!) is a part of the fray - the rest of the list contains the usual sellouts. Not to say that I wouldn't take cash for my Tweets if it came my way! Have you heard what happened to the Twitter account "Shit My Dad Says"? I'd be making a mint if I could Tweet freely. Have I mentioned that my mother-in-law follows me on Twitter? I'm just sayin'! Ah, the hell with it - I'm gonna let loose and take my chances. Look for me on CBS soon...

Disgraced beauty pageant professional Carrie Prejean has not one, not two - not even three sex tapes. Rather Ms. Holy Roller has eight films that show her masturbating. Talk about self love! Oh, and in addition to the tapes, there are also a reported thirty topless photos of the former Miss California. She sure has a lot of "time" on her hands for someone who wasn't able to fulfill her contractual obligations. Details? Oh, yes - via Snarkerati:
[Carrie Prejean said that making her solo sex tape was the biggest mistake of her life. She made it sound like the video was a once in a lifetime occurrence and was totally accidental. Now, she's trying to take the Christian high road and say that our bodies are temples, blah blah blah.
I didn't know it was possible to turn a sex tape (or eight of them!) into something religious and spiritual. Reportedly, there were more than just one of "the biggest mistakes" of her live, try seven more than the one we were already aware of. It's porno for Christians!
Reportedly, in one of the tapes, she's said to be showing everything, and was taken by her using her reflection in a mirror. On another of the recordings, she was seen wearing a white blouse as she does *things* to herself. She's giving perverts a new reason to praise Jesus.]
I didn't know being a judgmental hypocrite was such a great way to get off! What will she "come" up with next? Hey, it's not gay if you're touching yourself!

[OK! reports Jolie met the unnamed girl she wants to bring into her family during a U.N. Refugee Agency trip in October. Moved by the child's account of fleeing extremists, Jolie made the decision to adopt, a "friend" explains to the mag, which cites a British newspaper "source" as saying the paperwork "has gone through." There are two issues here.
First of all, during her recent visit Jolie met with refugees who had fled to Syria - not Syrians. So it's more than likely that if she adopts a girl she met during the United Nations trip, she is not Syrian.
Second, if the girl is Syrian, she'd be exceptionally difficult for Jolie to adopt. Gossip Cop spoke with the Syrian embassy and confirmed that "securing custody of Syrian orphans for immigration is extremely difficult as adoption is essentially illegal in Syria." Laws concerning personal status matters are handled by religious authorities in that country, and a Muslim child would not be possible to adopt.
Since OK! and others mostly focus on how Jolie's "single-minded mission has caused a major rift" with Pitt, of course, they ignore whether the process might cause a major rift with the law.]
Something tells me that Angelina will get her way, regardless of what Brad wants. That means we'll be seeing a seventh blessed child enter the "Rainbow Brood" very soon...
[Well, we wouldn't want to piss them off. She might steal Spencer--you know, because she steals people's husbands! But seriously, we'd love to sit down and discuss fame with them. Consider this your formal invitation, Brangelina. Let's hang out sometime. We'll be SpeidiLina!]
The only way I could imagine this "meeting" taking place is if Angelina were still into the practice of self-mutilation. I can assume that intentionally cutting yourself would be equal in pain to spending time with Spencer Pratt and his "wife" Heidi Montag. Though I could see it happening if Angie were really pissed at Brad - talk about punishment! This could be Jolie's perfect weapon - look for Pitt to agree on the adoption of that seventh child any day now! As for Angelina stealing Spencer? Well, she's had dirtier things. Cough *Billy Bob Thornton* Cough.
This is what Coco chose to wear while cleaning the house. I've heard (via my boyfriend's repeated requests) that I'm supposed to don a French Maid costume at some point in our relationship. I assumed this was Halloween specific and not a year-round expectation. Something tells me Ice-T and his wife Coco have a very different union!

As much as they love their kids, Apple, 5, and Moses, 3, the couple have been finding little common ground in recent years. The friends says that Gwyneth has "changed a lot" growing more serious and developing an interest in Kabbalah, while Chris, 32, has "stayed the same," and as a result the two have little to talk about.
"The only thing they may have in common these days is their kids," the friend explains. And although Gwyneth is trying hard to work things out with Chris, some wonder if it's worth it.]
I don't believe Chris's denial of the Kate Bosworth affair - but far be it for me to tell Ms. Perfect Paltrow what to do! As for the growing "differences" between the couple? Well, Gwyneth seems more determined than ever to make being an uptight bitch her full-time job. As for Chris? Boys just wanna have fun - especially when they're world-famous rock stars. As I mentioned earlier, I think Paltrow's shine has worn off for Martin. I'm sure he was intimataed and overwhelmed with they first hooked up - but I'll be things are quite different behind closed doors. Look for a split announcement after the holidays - that's my guess!
"Dave admitted he's sleeping in the city after Regina let him have it. He took a few days off from the show so they could try to work things out," divulged an insider at his CBS show. "But if anything, he may have made the situation worse. Regina demanded that he tell the complete truth about what he did with the women, but Dave hemmed and hawed. Now he's moved out of the house. He said Regina told him to 'get out' and that's exactly what he did! He hopes Regina will cool down in a few weeks and he can try again to set things right."
Even though he publicly apologized to her, Regina, 49, is still furious about Dave's illicit roance with his 34-year-old personal assistant Stephanie Birkitt, insiders say.
Regina has told Dave that she plans to make a decision about the future of the marriage by the end of the year," divulged the close source. "Meanwhile, she wants Dave to think about his commitment to their relationship, and whether staying together is what he really wants.
"She doesn't want to leave the marriage, and there's no indication that they're breaking up for good. But Regina wants to make sure he doesn't hurt her again. She feels the scandal has made her a public laughingstock."]
I don't know - it doesn't exactly sound like he's roughing it. Banished to his luxurious loft in Manhattan? Say it isn't so! I think his marriage might be doomed either way. Regina only thinks she wants to know every detail of his affairs. I don't think she'll be in a more forgiving mood after she hears how many times he had sex with someone else...
When questioned about the purported photograph, Cindy's daughter Kaia told her that the shot was taken by her former nanny during a "cops and robbers" game. This information wasn't revealed until Kayalar made contact with the family to demand money. In questioning the nanny, it was determined that the blackmailer is an acquaintance of hers.
The couple is working with the FBI and the U.S. attorney's office and have filed documents with the U.S. District Court of Los Angeles. Kayalar was deported to Germany and believed to be in Stuttgart, where he continues to demand money from the couple.
U.S. authorities are aggressively working through international channels and have issued an arrest warrant against Edis Kayalar. It is possible that the nanny could also be charged, according to an FBI official who said, "I wouldn't rule it out." Garbe and Crawford discharged the employee after learning of the "cops and robbers" game.]
Umm, I don't think I'd go with "actress" Cindy Crawford - I believe the correct tag is "former supermodel." The one movie Crawford "starred" in was an outrageously terrible Jessica Simpson-style bomb. Not to nitpick. It sounds like she's got enough on her plate at the moment! There are some sick people in this world and it's scary to think how close these alleged criminals got to Crawford's children. Good thoughts go out to the family for a speedy resolution in this matter.
"They got in trouble because my children are riding their dirt bikes through the whole trailer park, going crazy, doing flips - and everyone's concerned for their safety. And mom's like, 'Oh, they've been riding the whole weekend, they're having a blast!' I was like, 'They're not allowed to ride their dirt bikes in the trailer park!' They terrorize the neighborhood the whole time."
She adds, "My son got in trouble at school for beating somebody up. Well, not really beating somebody up. Just one of the counsellors, who's 18 or 19, made a rude comment about me to him. Brandon threw his Red Bull (drink) on him and then went after him and they had to peel him off him. Now I'm getting called into school.
"But I think when somebody says something bad about your mother, what are you supposed to do? It is hard when other kids are like, 'I've seen your mom with her clothes off!' I've tried to teach my kids I have no problem with nudity. Violence isn't good but Brandon was really upset, he was shaking and crying and looking in my eyes. It's so sad."]
Oh, dear. Where do we start? When your parents have a very public sex tape, multiple scandals, well-documented fights and you might really be living in a trailer park? Those kids have some challenges ahead, that's all I'm gonna say. It might behoove Pam to get a father figure for her boys - their own dad need not apply.
[Photo Credit: Hey, Brandon - I've seen your mom's butt!]
A source said, "It's very serious. As soon as his mom gives the sign off, he's going to propose. Renee's and Bradley's previous marriages both ended after only four months. They have that in common - it's one of the things that brought them together."
She's set to meet the parents when they spend Thanksgiving with them in Philadelphia. The snitch added, "Things have been heading in this direction for the two of them for a while, but this definitely solidifies how serious they are. Renee says she's nervous, and she's really hoping it goes well. She's very excited."]
Given that they're both so sensitive about their four month marriages means to me that they'll surely give their union an eight month window. That way they'll break the odds! Very yawn exciting.
Lohan was brought in to work with Estrella Archs as a consultant. Their creations were display on the catwalk during Paris Fashion Week last month. The press had a field day with it and called the line an "embarrassment." The introduction of Lohan, meant to give the label publicity, was a huge risk that failed to produce the desired result and instead unleashed disaster and ruin. Emanuel says that this often happens when designers give up their "houses" and bring in advisers.]
Geez, I hope he kissed her before he fucked her. I'm sure if the pairing had been even remotely successful he would have be been all smiles while grabbing the credit. Meanwhile, the latest bad press has just added to the avalanche of Lindsay's life in decline...
[We're hearing that Carey Hart, mostly known for being Pink's on-and-off hubby, may have been secretly getting his flirt on with a poker dealer in Las Vegas, according to the boobalicious babe's buds. Oh, my. From bitchin' and fun, sexy musical groundbreaker to a... card dealer. Interesting choice, there, Carey.
It was only this past May that reunited (and never legally divorced) Pink and Hart said "everything's perfect" in their relationship and that they couldn't live without each other. Well, it seems like Vegas-vixen Lindsey Hanson has a little something to say about that... Or her tell-all friends do!
According to sources who claim they saw it all go down, Hart befriended 24-year-old Hanson after meeting her the other week while she was dealing cards at the Pleasure Pit in Planet Hollywood. Since then, our insiders claim Carey and Lindsay have gotten super chummy.
"He gave her his number, and then they met up that night at his club," says our Vegas spy. "He said his relationship with Pink is always on-and-off. Lindsey said he didn't seem like a player at all and that she was the one that pursued him."
But did she really succeed? A rep at Wasted Space, which Hart owns at the Hard Rock, and who is also a friend of Hart's, gave us this comment: "We don't represent Carey, and he currently does not have someone that does." Pink's rep has not commented back at this time.
But those in Vegas who did gab allege that Carey (who frequents Vegas because of Wasted Space) told Hanson to keep their friendship secret. How thoughtful is that? "Carey told her that she needs to keep this quiet because he is still with Pink," claims our source. "She told him she'd keep it top secret, and he keeps reminding her that she can't tell anyone. Since they met, he has texted her every day," Desk Vegas alleges about Hart and Missy Dealer. "She really wants to be with him."
But is this really the case? Just a few days ago, Hart and Pink were playfully Twittering back and forth. On Sunday Pink wrote "@hartluck U BETTER SHUT IT OR I WILL MAKE U WATCH LOVE ACTUALLY 16 TIMES RIGHT WHEN U GET HERE!!!!!" In response Hart wrote, "@pink Ok, I'm quiet!!!"
Hanson recently posted pictures of her and Hart from their initial meeting on her Facebook page. Ready for a big shocker? Lindsey is an aspiring model and former Oakland Raiders Cheerleader.]
I guess this is the way people angle to become famous these days. Same old story, different cock/vagina combo.
The HSM hunk hung courtside at the Lakers game for a bit before swinging by the lounge, where he held court with three guy friends. "The boys were really enjoying the game and not noticing the gaggle of girls trying to get his attention," a source tells E! News.
But it was another story back at a West Hollywood nightclub... Zac and his buddies moved the party to MI6 after the Lakers game. "He showed up pretty late, around midnight," another source tells E! News. "He seemed like he was in a good mood--dancing, talking to a bunch of people--and he was definitely flirting with some girls."
What does this all mean for his relationship with Vanessa Hudgens? Although the couple hasn't been photographed together since October at a Vancouver Giants hockey game, a source close to the twosome says they're still on. So maybe she's just busy filming her own movie, Sucker Punch, in Canada?
Vanessa's rep didn't respond to our request for comment. Still, it needs to be said: We love seeing Zac on the nightlife scene, but watch out, V: He's a hot commodity, and Tinseltown chicks can be ruthless. As long as your schedule permits, we suggest joining your guy next time!]
Ah, yes! The ruthless chicks competing for his affection. The nightlife. The manly viewing of the sports games. The roller coaster relationships! Wow, Zac really has it all - including a Tom Cruise complex.
By the way, DON'T call Demi Moore a cougar because she is offended by the way she has been made the Poster Girl for all women who have engaged in relationships with younger men. In the future, if you must label her in some way, she would appreciate being referred to as a puma.]
I'll get right on that, Ms. Puma! Meanwhile... W, please don't encourage Demi with the Twitter. She's doing enough damage on her own, without the high-fives from high society. Also, could you consider removing your lips from her ass? There ain't no fat to suck! Check it:
[Great actors, those most capable of galvanizing attention onscreen, are often reclusive or even entirely humdrum in daily life--Meryl Streep and Daniel Day-Lewis come to mind. And then there are movie stars, who, thanks to some rare inborn quality, shine just as vibrantly, often even more so, offscreen. The former live in the public eye thanks to their roles, whereas the latter do not owe their fame to any given performance. Private antics, public spats and provocative media images risk distracting from an actor's talent, but for a movie star they are fully half of what her biography consists of.
Few contemporary celebrities illustrate the distinction more clearly than Demi Moore. For 25 years now, she has made a career--and a fortune--from being stared at by the public. Her body of work has been notable in no small part because of her notable body. Which is why it's impossible not to study every inch of her famous face and well-documented curves when she pounces on a sofa at 7:30 p.m. after a long fashion shoot in a Hollywood photo studio.]
Just because you buttered her up more than movie popcorn doesn't mean she's going to let you sleep with Ashton Kutcher. FYI.
"We're immensely blessed with Sunday. I think neither of us was ever sure we would have kids," says Keith, 42. "We didn't get to meet each other in our 20s or 30s, so we thought maybe that's not our journey, we're fine with that. But it's such a miracle to have her."]
I guess Urban is forgetting the main difference between him and Tom Cruise (Nicole's previous husband) - Keith's penis actually entered Nicole's vagina and left a "deposit." And that, folks, is how babies are made! Bam. This stands out in stark contrast to Kidman's decade-long union to Cruise... Meanwhile, enjoy a video photo montage of the attractive couple - set to song! You're welcome.
Sunday's "Mad" finale attracted 2.3 million viewers to AMC, a 33 percent increase over last season's ending episode. The closer was off from the season three premiere, which brought in 2.8 million viewers in August. Among adults 18-49, "Mad" drew just over 1.1 million viewers, a whopping 56 percent increase over the season two finale. AMC also wants you to know that "Mad Men" remains the most upscale series on basic cable, with fully half of its adults 25-54 audience pulling down more than $100,000 per year.
Meanwhile, over in the always happy land of E!, the Kardashians kontinue to kill in the ratings. A two-hour wedding episode, airing from 8-10 p.m., drew nearly 3.2 million viewers- the most in "Keeping Up" history. It also scored a massive 3.92 rating among women 18-34, becoming the most-watched E! broadcast ever in that demo.]
In summary: we, as a country, have no taste and are willing to support an entitled no-talent she-giant over Jon Hamm. Life is weird.
[Photo Credit: At least she doesn't have a sex tape... yet.]
But now Jon and his team of Hellers (Mike and Mark) have decided the best defense is an offense. In the past they have contended that Jon was not adequately represented when he signed his TLC contract. TLC is represented by Washington, D.C. law firm Williams & Connolly.
In its lawsuit against Jon, TLC claims he has breached his contract repeatedly and points out that he and Kate had legal representation when dealing with the network. The lawsuit contends that their contract was renegotiated several times.
One fact that neither side has addressed publicly is the cost of this litigation. Williams & Connolly is widely regarded as one of the best law firms in the country and has a reputation for "scorched earth" tactics, meaning that opponents rarely are left with any secrets by the time the discovery process is over. It is not known what the Hellers are charging Jon, but if litigation drags on in either lawsuit, the bill is likely to reach high six figures and beyond.]
Yikes! This does not bode well for Gosselin. I don't think he'll be able to withstand any revelations of secrets. That man has got to have more than one 20-something nanny hookup hiding in his closet! Insult to injury? Alleged fling, Kate Major, has also been called to testify. You know she'll be serving up a heaping dish of dirt. Details:
[Kate quit her job as a reporter at Star magazine while having a romantic relationship with Jon, who has since denied that they were romantically involved. That denial incensed Kate and sources tell RadarOnline.com that she is very much looking forward to testifying against Jon in the breach of contract lawsuit. Kate has given several interviews since her breakup with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 star and she has repeatedly blasted him.]
My guess is that Jon won't have a pot to piss in after this is all over. Looks like his kids better be prepared to start working at a very young age!

Michael confirmed the news on his Twitter page earlier today, saying, "Yes, my daughter was dating Heath Ledger at the time of his death" and "it all went downhill from there..." In the taped conversation, Dina said, "And she was dating Heath when he died. I don't know if you know that, but I know cause I would drop her off and they were friends very, very close, okay?"
Dina was obviously fearful that her daughter would suffer the same fate, she added, "Because when she's drunk or takes an Adderall with it, she will do something like Heath Ledger did in a second without thinking."]
I'm sure Michael Lohan has yet another pumped up excuse as to why he leaked this taped conversation to RadarOnline. For Lindsay's own good? Yeah, right. Click here for the exclusive, full-length version of the Dina Lohan's side of the tale. On another note, these allegations of a "relationship" between Linds and Heath show Heath's fragile state of mind at the time of his death. Lindsay Lohan and Mary-Kate Olson (who Ledger was also allegedly seeing before his untimely passing) aren't exactly strangers to drugs. Both women pale in comparison to Michelle Williams - the love of Heath's life, who reportedly split with him because of his supposed heavy drug use. This one is a sad story, all the way around.
[Photo Credit: I actually feel bad for Lindsay today.]
Holly said, "I had a great time with Hef and the girls when they came to see 'Peepshow' and hang out in Vegas. I don't watch the other episodes, though, because it kind of makes me mad. The girls need to focus on what makes them unique and not doing the same things Bridget, Kendra and I have already done on the show."
She continued, "Even camping in the backyard was an idea I had for an episode that we never got around to shooting. And guess what they just showed? The girls camping in the backyard. I don't want to look behind, I want to look forward."]
Well, at least you won't find Criss Angel back there anymore if you chose the "looking behind" option! I hate to spoil the surprise, sweetheart - but camping in the backyard, much less anything else the twins do on the show, is not their idea. Those two are barely smart enough to tie their own shoes, much less come up with semi-interesting concepts for a reality show. If you feel betrayed, you only need to look as far as your former behind-the-scene coworkers at E!. The Girls Next Door is still a cash cow, with or without you. Granted, you and your giggly sorority sisters set a successful precedence. But E! has a template that works, and they're sticking with it.
[Photo Credit: Oh sure, it's all fun and games until someone falls asleep at the party.]
Nice move, Timberpuss, supporting both your ladies' careers at the same time! (You know Jessica will just start to fade if she isn't attached to JT!) Hmm, wonder who he ended the evening with?]
Jessica is either really in love, or really desperate. I don't know how she could consider herself too pretty for Hollywood, but not too pretty for Justin. What do you think - is Jessica's career benefitting from her association with Justin (at all costs), or should she go it alone?

Elisabetta is reportedly posing in a wet, see-through dress with a sexy pout on her face. Though she has clothes on, it is still very revealing, and fans won't be disappointed. It is said that the photos reveal "a naked breast and her butt." We will soon see why she is "the hottest beauty from the most exquisite of countries."]
It has been reported that Elisbetta had been angling hoping to date Clooney for years - not that she was alone in that desire! Regardless of intention, she's already made it further than Sarah Lawson, at least in the realm of public perception and acceptance. Elisbetta has her television reporting gig to fall back on, should things should go awry with George. That sounds a lot more palatable than Lawson's cocktail waitressing fate.
Does Nicole Richie realize that the constant attention from the paparazzi has helped her parlay her five minutes of fame as Paris Hilton's formerly chubby friend into fulltime tabloid staple? One could say that Nicole and the paparazzi are living off each other - and, at times, it's been difficult to tell who is the host and who is the parasite. Well, perhaps Ms. Thing thinks that her elevated status of being famous for doing nothing is rock solid. Nicole has won an injuction against paparazzi. Will this be the end of the spotlight for our favorite trashy party girl turned reality princess? Details:
[Nicole Richie has been granted a temporary restraining order against two photographers accused of crashing into her car in early October (09).â€¨Richie was treated in hospital after the 5 October (09) accident, which took place just a month after she gave birth to Sparrow, herâ€¨second child with partner Joel Madden.â€¨The paparazzi, Ivon Miguel and Bam Bam, have been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Richie and have no contact with her, her children or her staff, following a court hearing in Los Angeles on Friday (30Oct09).â€¨In a court declaration, Richie complained she is harassed "on a daily basis", accusing the two photographers of "stalking our home, as we try to go about living our lives".â€¨A second hearing will take place in November (09) to determine if the restraining order should be made permanent, reports TMZ.com.]
Okay, two paparazzi down won't really make a dent in Nicole coverage - and they were acting like jerks. Becoming a threat to someone's personal safety is not cool. However being annoyingly famous for doing nothing is also not cool. Perhaps we should file an injunction against Nicole Richie. Harlow, though, is welcome to stay.
Note to celebrities - when issuing a denial that you're not dating someone by having your rep emphatically exclaim that you and the person in question are "just friends" - you're pretty much confirming that you are having sex with said person. FYI. Lucky for us, Jude Law hasn't caught on to this little fact of life - therefore we can have some more fun at his expense. Here's his publicist's hilarious statement:
[Jude Law has shot down rumours he's secretly dating ex-girlfriend Sienna Miller while the pair are starring in rival Broadway productions.â€¨The actors split in 2006 after Law was caught cheating with a nanny who cared for his kids with ex-wife Sadie Frost.â€¨They were reunited this month (Oct09) when they both landed roles in New York stage shows; Law in Hamlet and Miller in After Miss Julie.â€¨Miller has been spotted sneaking into a matinee performance of Hamlet, and the pair has been seen enjoying nights out together - prompting rumours the romance is back on.â€¨Law admits they're in touch, but insists the relationship is purely platonic.â€¨His representative tells Glamour.com, "Jude and Sienna are just friends and are seeing each other socially occasionally as they are both on Broadway, performing just one block apart."]
The lad doth protest too much, methinks. Ironic that this famous line hails from Hamlet, in which Law is currently starring. Shakespeare said it first - who are we to argue?

Oh, John Mayer. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm secretly attracted to you. I find you so freakin' annoying that I'm wondering if the extreme annoyance is actually hidden lust. Naw, scratch that. Mayer really is just a douche. Albeit an occasionally humorous douche. Here's his Tweet regarding Britney Spears' alleged lip-synching:
["If you're shocked that Britney was lip-syncing at her concert and want your money back, life may continue to be hard for you."]
Turns out that Mayer might be on to something - fans in Australia recently left Brit's concert in droves when she seemed to be lip-synching her performance. Details; as if you need proof!
[She was only three songs into her Perth, Australia show Friday night when fans started heading to the doors. Hundreds of them left, and even more are angry about what they paid between $182 and $1370 US dollars to see.
"We are really big Britney fans, but it was crap," Josh Blee told local reporters. "She has let us down. Added Amanda Hawlet, who drove two hours to Perth's Burswood Dome, "I want my money back or I want her to sing properly. It cost me half a week's wage....it was a waste."
Even the Australian government has gotten involved in the dispute. New South Wales Minister for Fair Trade Virginia Judge is considering requiring Britney to disclose on tickets for future shows that she doesn't sing live. "Australians would not tolerate a 'Mickey Mouse' performace," Judge told the Sydney Daily Telegraph. "Let's be clear. Live means live."]
Live means live, people! And a stick up the ass means a stick up the ass! Dang, I thought they were kickin' it free-style "Down Under." Was there something in the water that caused mass delusions, or do they not have access to the Internet? I think it's clear what needs to happen here - John Mayer and Britney Spears need to date. John will lend her the musical credibility she so richly deserves!
The keys to kingdom have officially been handed over to Taylor Swift. Taylor famously gained sympathy from the entertainment industry and civilians alike when Kayne West notoriously made an ass of himself by cutting off her acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards. Perhaps you heard about it? Well, the debacle didn't seem to hurt her any - in fact, her star continues to rise. Here she is hosting SNL - always a good indication that you're on the launch pad of success! Though the monolog reveals a slightly warbling tone, the humorous lyrics more than make up for the lack of "umph." Congrats, Taylor! One a side note, I do think it's an interesting comment on the state of celebrity culture that Swift stands out for being so sweet... It shouldn't be that unique!
He tells the Las Vegas Sun, "Steven quit as far as I can tell. I don't know any more than you do about it. I got off the plane two nights ago. I saw online that Steven said that he was going to leave the band. I don't know for how long, indefinitely or whatever. Other than that, I don't know."
Perry blames Tyler's lack of communication for the split saying, "He's notorious for that. That's one thing I've learned to live with. I try to overlook it. I like to pick my battles. As far as replacing Steve, it's not just about that, it's also four guys that play extremely well together, and I'm not going to see that go to waste. I really don't know what path it's going to take at this point, but we'll probably find somebody else that will sing in those spots where we need a singer and then we'll be able to move the Aerosmith up a notch, move the vibe up a notch."]
Oh, Joe Perry! May I suggest you might be a tad delusional? "Bringing the vibe up a notch" - really? The vibe you should be notching is your La-Z-Boy recliner. It's over, dude. Take a load off and relax.
But... you're a pop music superstar. What are you trying to say, Miles, that you don't write your own songs, have any say in which you sing and are nothing but a packaged Disney artist that will do anything your label tells you?]
Well, yes. I'm sure Jay-Z appreciates being a part of her (and Disney's) faux bid for street cred. Makes you wonder if she's also really a virgin as well. Surely she wouldn't lie about that!

"When Tom saw they'd changed the character to a female and renamed it Evelyn Salt, he was not pleased," a friend says. "Tom really wanted that role, and the rug was pulled out from underneath him." When Brad heard that Tom was grousing about it, he started calling Cruise "Dr. Strange" said the source.
The animosity between the two actors dates back to 1993 when they costarred in 'Interview with a Vampire' and Brad said that he hates making the movie because of Tom. "He bugged me," Brad was quoted saying in published reports at the time. "There came a point during filming when I started really resenting him. He's North Pole, I'm South. He's always coming at you with a handshake, where I may bump into you. There was this underlying competition that got in the way of any real conversation."
Tom, whose rep denies there is any bad blood between the two, has been a huge star since 1983's Risky Business, but Brad didn't get his big break until 1992, and there was a definite pecking order on the "Interview" set, the friend says. "Brad felt Tom big-leagued him. He wasn't gracious and acted aloof around Brad," said the friend."]
I don't know why the Enquirer is dragging out this old news, but it's entertaining nonetheless. I totally believe there's still a feud, dating back to Interview With A Vampire. It was actually pretty well-documented back in the day. There's no doubt in my mind that Cruise was nervous about Pitt taking over the spotlight - which has indeed long since happened. Insult to injury? No play-date has ever materialized between Suri and Shiloh. Talk about a public bitch slap!
She says, "Overall, in terms of this business, I hope to gain the status that will enable me to be truly and legitimately helpful to people. I feel like that's my purpose in life, to do charity work and help people around the world on a global level. Being part of this business, you have so much influence and you can really make a difference. I'm drawn towards the idea of somehow helping children."]
Bitch, please! She doesn't even know how to verbalize what she supposedly wants to do. All she knows is, "Angelina does that, so I should too." I'm so tired of her. If I ever want to have a laugh or take a nap, I think of Megan Fox. At least she's good for something! Meanwhile, one nugget of truth has fallen from those beautiful lips - she admits, in print, that she is dating Brian Austin Green. Finally! I think I'd like her better if she could just be herself. What do you say, Megan?
"They weren't even shy about it. There weren't too many regular people there, so maybe they thought no one would blab about them. But they looked really into each other - they held hands and kissed, and I saw Chris caress her cheek. It was pretty romantic."
Later, at an after party for Bono at The Palazzo's Carnevino restaurant, Chris and Kate kept carrying on, eyewitnesses report. "Kate arrived around midnight with Chris and some other Coldplay members... they stayed until around 5 a.m. It was a wild party!"
When Kate and Chris first arrived, she went straight up to the hostess' stand and started rambling on about how she and Gwyneth were really good friends. "Thinking about it now, it was like she was overcompensating," says an onlooker. "She said that whenever she's with Gwyneth in Los Angeles or New York, they always go to one of Mario Batali's restaurants. Carnevino is one of Mario's restaurants. It was so out of the blue that she was talking about her friendship with Gwyneth, like she was justifying why she was with Chris. And it's weird because Mario and Gwyneth are good friends too."
"Kate and Chris sat at a table towards the back of the room. They seemed pretty into each other," says an eyewitness. "They spent the entire time hanging out together, eating, drinking, laughing. Wherever Kate went, Chris would be right next to her. They sure looked like a couple to me."
Chris's hookup with Kate may not come as a shock to friends of the couple. Some say Gwyneth and Chris have been drifting apart for months. "It's like Chris suddenly realized he's a rock megastar and women throw themselves at him... he's become incredibly affected by female flattery. And Kate is just the kind of beauty who'll flatter him = bright, sexy and intelligent." Whispers of trouble in Chris and Gwyneth's marriage have been around for a long time, but looked like they were making a go of it in August when they purchased a new house. But, "it didn't work. The marriage has major problems. They're at a crossroads and there's no knowing if the relationship can survive... they're leading separate lives. She finds him immature. He finds her pretentious."
Meanwhile, Kate Bosworth "has been chasing Chris for a long time," a source reveals. "All his friends think that there's something going on with them. Last summer, Gwyneth's ego was bruised when Chris told her that Kate was like a younger version of herself... he's had a crush on Kate since she starred in Blue Crush. Gwyneth knows that Chris flirts all the time on the road, but after that 'younger version of you' comment, Gwyneth is more sensitive and suspicious of Kate."]
Forget Shakespeare In Love (for which Paltrow won an Oscar), Blue Crush is one of the best films of all time! I sense a GOOP newsletter coming soon entitled "How to Love Your Perfect Self - Even in the Face of Adversity." Let's make some organic crepes and then ride a three speed bike through the alleyways of Spain - just like we did when we were girls! Chris supposedly thinks Gwyneth is pretentious? What gave it away? I could see him stepping out on her. I'm sure he was overwhelmed when they first got together - but I'm not surprised that time has worn away her mystique. I think Kate will make a lovely stepmother to Apple and Moses. Too bad she's too skinny to pick them up!
Thanks for offering, Kristen Stewart! If there's on thing that comes to mind when I think of Kristen, it's "generosity." The second is "grace." Ah, I'm just kidding! I usually think "ungrateful bitch" and then "stoner." Here's another one of Stewart's endless laments on the price of fame and the non-answer to "is she or isn't she" with Twilight costar, Robert Pattinson:
[ Asked about the endless rumors of her supposed off-screen
romance with Pattinson, for instance, Stewart got nicely fired up. "I probably
would've answered it if people hadn't made such a big deal about it," she said.
"But I'm not going to give the fiending an answer. I know that people are
really funny about 'Well, you chose to be an actor, why don't you just f--ing
give your whole life away?! Can I have your firstborn child?'"
Asked about the endless rumors of her supposed off-screen romance with Pattinson, for instance, Stewart got nicely fired up. "I probably would've answered it if people hadn't made such a big deal about it," she said. "But I'm not going to give the fiending an answer. I know that people are really funny about 'Well, you chose to be an actor, why don't you just f--ing give your whole life away?! Can I have your firstborn child?'"
Pattinson himself, who clearly loathes confrontation, tried to softly interject with philosophical statements about the need for an actor to hold onto his individuality. But Stewart cut him off. "I've thought about this a lot," she said. "There's no answer that's not going to tip you one way or the other. Think about every hypothetical situation: 'Okay, we are. We aren't. I'm a lesbian.' I'm just trying to keep something," she said. "If people started asking me if I was dating Taylor, I'd be like 'F-- off!' I would answer the exact same way." Without missing a beat, Pattinson looked at Lautner, promising "Me too."]
All the bellyaching is getting a lot older than she is - although I feel like I've been hearing her endless b.s. for nineteen years. I guess I'm like a vampire in that sense - time has no meaning when I think of Stewart. All I can think of is an eternity of glistening pain. Meanwhile - just nut up and tell the truth. You're boning him. He's gorgeous. Be happy!
Ugh - the hole just keeps getting dug deeper in the Fergie /Josh Duhamel/stripper cheating scandal. On the upside - we have a whole new "Bermuda Triangle!" I'm sure that eases Fergie's pain. Even more details, revealing that Josh most likely strayed:
["Josh told her it didn't happen, and she believes him." Yet a lawyer for the same Atlanta exotic dancer who claims she had a one-night stand with Duhamel has passed a lie-detector test and is in possession of racy texts from the Transformers star that corroborate the affair, Us Weekly reports.
Attorney Romin Alavi tells Us that his client, Nicole Forrester -- a 34-year-old mother of two -- didn't seek out the the National Enquirer (which offered her $20,000 for the story) in hopes of a payday. "Josh bragged about what happened on the set of his movie [Life As We Know It], and someone called the Enquirer with the tip," Alavi tells Us Weekly. "The Enquirer then came to Nicole."
The new Us Weekly also reports how various women across the country have now come forth to claim their own dubious sexcapades with Duhamel, 37. During San Francisco's JV on Wild 94.9 radio show on Oct. 30, a woman named Serena called in to say that while the then-engaged actor was filming the Transformers sequel at a New Mexico Air Force base in 2008, he slept with her best friend who was stationed there. "She also said she knew two other people whom he hooked up with," the program's producer, Jon Manuel, tells Us Weekly.]
Ouch! The cheesy Jerry Springer style polygraph is one thing. The supposed text messages and additional fling info has brought this fiasco to a new level of trash. I'm sure Nicole Forrester (the stripper in question) will be "revealing" what these "steamy messages" said any day now - for the right price, of course.
Meanwhile, in a case of "worst timing ever" comes Fergie's December cover of Cosmopolitan. Of course the cover shoot and subsequent interview happened long before knowledge of Josh's alleged cheating came to light. The release of this issue means that Fergie is publicly lavishing praise on her hubby while the tabloids are simultaneously heralding him as a dog. Really great how that's lined up - just in time for the holidays! Something tells me Duhamel might end up with a turkey leg where the sun don't shine. Anyways, here's what Fergie has to say about him in Cosmo:
[Josh's reaction to Fergie's recent weight gain for her role in the movie Nine: "When I came home from filming he was excited. He enjoys having both: the extra meat to grab when it's there and the tight stomach when that's there. He always gives me compliments. He's never been critical."
Fergie on the virgin/whore complex:â€¨"You know, in Italy, Catholic boys are raised to believe that there are two types of women: the Madonna and the whore. And me? I'm both."]
I guess she wasn't enough of a whore - or was too much of a Madonna. I'm not a guy, so I'm bereft of the knowledge as to why men are lured to new pussy, no matter what the consequences. Can any of my male readers enlighten me? I'm going to be really bummed if my fiancĂ© writes in, by the way.
God, I love Chelsea Handler. She's vivacious, hilarious and brutally honest. I aspire for my writing/humor to be a blend of Chelsea Handler and David Sedaris (both have several amazing books out), with a little bit of Brendon from What Would Tyler Durden Do thrown in for good measure. Now you can see how wildly I'm failing! Anyways, here's a great quote from Chelsea:
["I think the people I talk about are generally so stupid [that] they don't even know I'm saying bad things about them," said the Chelsea Lately host. "I've run into Paris Hilton and she's like, 'Oh, I love your show.' And I'm like, 'You can't love my show if you can hear.' "]
I don't know what else there is to say. She's perfect.
Kevin Federline seems adverse to using condoms. I, normally, am adverse to thinking of Kevin's penis in any form and what he chooses to do with it. Sadly, for both of us, the issue has raised it's ugly head again - pun intended. Has Kevin not heard of a procedure called a vasectomy? I really can't think of a better candidate for one. Perhaps he needs a sperm intervention. I'm thinking stolen kidney style - wait until he passes out after another Cheeto and beer orgy; then get in there and clip the little fucker. I'm not volunteering for the job - we're going to have to draw straws. I'm sure Britney is thrilled to be supporting yet another child that's not her own - Kevin already has two children from a previous relationship. I'm sure his generous Spears stipend supports those kids as well! Here're a few details. Don't get squeamish - this part is pretty tame:
[We hear Kevin Federline is going to be a daddy again! According to a report from The National Enquirer, his girlfriend Victoria Prince is several weeks pregnant with the couple's first child. After one false alarm earlier this year, Victoria supposedly began to suspect that she was pregnant after the couple spent two weeks in Las Vegas in late September. A source says: "The test was positive. She told Kevin that she was pregnant, but he didn't seem happy to hear the news." Insiders say Kevin isn't happy about having to play dad to yet another child. As you know, he has two children with Britney Spears, and two with ex Shar Jackson, making this his fifth. Star magazine also confirms the story, saying Victoria thought she was pregnant after feeling sick while at lunch recently. A source tells the mag, "Since then, Victoria's been ill off and on, so everyone suspects that she's expecting." Star also says Kevin isn't happy about having to go on diaper duty again. "Under no circumstances does he want another kid now," the insider reveals. "He's not even acknowledging the possibility." "He's awful when it comes to birth control. Kevin thinks it's the woman's responsibility."]
He also appears to think it's the woman's responsibility to support him and his lavish fat lifestyle. What a catch!
Then again, we are talking about the spawn of Courtney Love. Speaking of "high hopes" that would be a great name for one of Love's many albums that will never be released. Anyways, the lovely Frances Bean was recently caught behaving badly - though it seems quite tame in comparison to her famous mamma. Hell, any kind of bad behavior pales in comparison to what Courtney is capable of - then and now! Details:
[According to the NY Post, The Bean wanted to take a train from Boston to New York on Sunday but no one could find her reservation. Not a good idea. The Bean went into a tirade and berated the clerk and kept saying "Don't you know who I am?" Wow, seriously does that work for the kids of rock stars who have been dead for fifteen years? You don't seriously think she was running around saying she was Courtney Love's kid do you? Plus, she refused to pay for the ticket and wanted the clerk to pay for her ticket. I don't know - it is rather confusing and this quote from a passenger doesn't clear everything up. "She caused a huge backup on the line because she refused to pay [for] herself. She was causing a scene and saying her name loudly to the guy behind the counter, but he had no idea who she was. Finally, she got out of line to call her business manager, who paid for her ticket."]
If only Bean's dad, Kurt Cobain, were still around - for many reasons. I'm sure he would have divorced Love and taken Bean under his wing. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. I have a lot of sympathy for Frances - I'm sure her life hasn't been easy, despite the wealth left behind by her father. Let's just chalk this one up to a bad day.
Throughout all of the casting whispers, Angelina's would-be costar seemed pretty certain. Sam Worthington had been attached to the project for months, and it was reported that Angelina was looking forward to working with him (despite the fact that he doesn't seem that bright). Now it looks like Worthington is out... leaving a casting hole that needs to be filled. Who has the balls to take on Angelina? Reportedly, Johnny Depp is considering it.]
The tabloids are going to have field day if these two team up - regardless of whether anything happens or not. I don't think Johnny would stray from his longtime partner (and rumored wife) Vanessa Paradis. But I do believe Angelina would be more than happy to fan the flames of jealousy on behalf of getting under Brad's skin. This could be interesting!
Soon after the scandal broke -- and both Eddie and LeAnn had filed for divorce from their spouses -- Life & Style revealed a bombshell. Not only had Eddie been cheating on his wife with LeAnn, he'd also been carrying on a three-year romance with 24-year-old aspiring actress Scheana Marie Jancan.
Since then, Eddie's slyly been playing the role of faithful boyfriend to rich and famous LeAnn. But Life & Style can once again expose him for the serial cheater he is. "Eddie has recently started seeing Scheana again," an insider tells Life & Style exclusively, noting that they were together on Oct. 21 around 1 a.m. "He told her he's only with LeAnn for the publicity and that he plans to end things with her soon."]
What a lovely man! I wonder if he's related to Jon Gosselin?

"LOOK PEREZ YOU MAKE A LIVING OFF TELLING LIES AND TRYING TO ASSOCIATE YOURSELF WITH ANYONE WHO IS IN THE MEDIA FOR PRESS. WE SHOULD ALL JUST CALL YOU MICHAEL LOHAN.

YOU ARE TRULY ONE OF THE WORSE PEOPLE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH AND THE SAD THING IS EVERYONE KNOWS IT INCLUDING YOU BUT IT OBVIOUSLY DOESN'T PHASE YOU. WHICH I MEAN PROPS TO BEING STRONG BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY YOU'RE A PIECE OF SH*T. AND ANOTHER THING PEREZ KARMA, NOT SURE IF YOU HAVE EVER HEARD ABOUT IT BUT IT'S A BI*!H AND IT WILL COME AFTER YOU ONE DAY. I HAVE LOOKED INTO SUEING YOU AND DECIDED, EH WHATEVER I'LL LET IT GO. YOU'RE NOT WORTH IT BUT WHAT YOU ARE WORTH IS ME TELLING YOU HOW I FEEL. ANOTHER ONE OF MY BRUTALLY HONEST MOMENTS."]
You know, she's kind of got a point. Who knew? I love her verbatim, Kanye West style Tweets. That's more than one post, for those of you not familiar with the micro-blogging social networking unit. I have a small faction of readers who live under rocks. While I appreciate Hailey's Tweet smack-down, I'd be hard pressed to say that she has any room to throw stones...
Kevin Williamson, writer of the original and upcoming Scream flicks, provided some more details as to what audiences will see in the next installments:
"It'll take place right now, 10 years later, and it's going to take place in [Sidney Prescott's hometown of] Woodsboro. We'll have our three main characters, and we'll be introducing several more...We'll also be introducing a little group, a little ensemble of new castmembers. That'll take us through the next three. I guess I'll just have to be very aware of the fact that we're a '4' and that we're beating a dead dog. I'm going to make that very apparent in the dialogue... Come on. It's the age of the remake! And 3-D and all that [other horror fad material], can you imagine what ['Scream' movie-within-a-movie] 'Stab 10' is like?"]
Scream set the standard for modernized horror flicks back in the day - will the latest attempt rise to the top again? I suspect it will be like the Star Wars prequels - great in theory, given the current technology, but possibly dodgy in actual execution. Does the induction of a new (reputedly younger) cast mean that Courteney, David and Neve's characters finally get killed off?
[Photo Credit: A fake mock-up of the sequel poster. Not bad!]
"Ashlee was kicked off 'Melrose Place' because she was a total diva on set, late all the time, and deeply disliked by fellow cast members," claims a source. "It created a lot of discord among the cast."
Not to mention her talent was severely lacking! "She could barely act," continued the insider. And because Asslee was completely unwatchable, the network was desperate to bring in Heather Locklear to reprise her role, even though her salary demands were steep.
"They basically trimmed the fat and made it possible for Heather to join the show," the source claims. "Heather is a much bigger name than Ashlee."]
Whew! That's exactly what I thought. Now I can move on - I hope you can too!
[Photo Credit: "I'd just like to say that no one at the CW likes me. Oh, and my sister didn't help matters!"]
There's precedent. I've been telling you about Kate Bosworth. My sources told me she allegedly pursued Jim Sturgess relentlessly during 21 without respecting the fact that he had a girlfriend. She did the same recently with Alexander Skarsgard and Evan Rachel Wood. She does not seem to care. If she wants it, she goes for it. Must be a food deficiency. And of course whatever "happy" makes her happy.
As for Chris Martin... if you've been reading this site long enough, you already know about those old rumours. London was buzzing about something with a civilian nearly two years ago and more recently, Chris and Gwyneth hit a rough patch like this before that resulted in a positive resolution. But those were kept undercover. They were not blown out publicly with G plastered all over the papers, embarrassingly portrayed as the jilted, homely wife betrayed for a younger version of herself.
How utterly...common. And that's the humiliation, isn't it? Not only is her husband cheating, but now it's become supermarket material. Gwyneth's face alongside Jon & Kate Plus 8. In her circle, this s the ultimate insult.]
Wow! And I thought the Josh Duhamel/Fergie cheat bomb was shocking. Here's a little more on Gwyneth, cuz it just ain't her day. Blythe Danner, Paltrow's mother, believes that Gwyneth is so brilliant that she could have found a cure for AIDS. Just one more reason Gwyn sucks - the world could be a better place, but the selfish bitch chose to be an actress. And now karma has come full circle. Payback is bitch.
"He's definitely IN the doghouse," the insider divulged. "But Fergie's hanging in there - at least for the time being. She understands show business marriages are not like other people's. She was fully aware of Josh's reputation as a ladies man when she hooked up with him."]
I understand that they're a couple in the glare of the entertainment industry, but a vow of marriage is the same regardless. Sounds like it's about to get a little tricky at the Duhamel household! I hear jewelry works wonders in situations like these... I also hear keeping it in your pants is also a fine way to keep the relationship working smoothly.
Sam was married to art dealer Jay Jopling, and after their split last year, he briefly hooked up with Lily Allen. But Sam's definitely trumped him in the hot, young stakes with Aaron here. Cougar-tastic!]
I don't care what combination we're talking about - a 19 and a 42 year old anything do not go together. I hope Sam doesn't get her heart broken again, but something tells me that ain't gonna be the reality in this instance. After all, this isn't the case of "Demi Moore and The Mystery of the Reappearing Dew of Youth." Click here for a photo of the doomed happy couple.
[Photo Credit: Note that I'm not saying she doesn't deserve to have a hot, young man. Believe me, I'm thrilled for her that she trumped her ex in the hookup category. Lily Allen? Come on! Rather, I'm basing my "this is a horrible idea" on the reality of a such a huge age gap. That is going to be a problem at some point.]
Maybe Stewart's exceptional worldview is just part of a sea change for many young celebrities quickly learning to adapt to the ruthlessly fickle rhythms of celebrity culture. But she presents co-star Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen as a bleak metaphor for celebrity. She says, "Edward is actually a really good parallel to fame."
"As a vampire, he has a sad, desolate life--fame is the same." Too true, K-Stew! It's lonely at the top. Because when you're reportedly raking in at least $12 million to bite your lower lip, there really is no one else--apart from those already lingering in that same dark chamber of celebrity shame--who can "get" you.
The rest of us will just bitterly bray about how you act by biting your lower lip, hoping that no one finds the joke tiresome. But Stewart's candidness is refreshing. She adamantly wants to avoid becoming too A-list. "I don't want to be a movie star like Angelina Jolie. Nothing about being a celebrity is desirable. I'm an actor. It's bizarre to me that everybody's so obsessive."
It's like growing up in a Hollywood universe and watching their peers, like Lindsay Lohan, implode so publically, young would-be A-listers tread showbiz turf with more practiced reservation than even venerable Oscar darlings.]
Here we have Jake Gyllenhaal's return to the big screen. Given that it's helmed by Jerry Bruckheimer, under the safety of the Disney umbrella, spells "sequel" to me. Not that more of Jake is a bad thing! And more of Jake with a big, fat paycheck? Hello, daddy! Now, what about those rumors of a "fake" relationship between Jake and his main squeeze Reese Witherspoon? Charade or no, they've kept up a pretty solid run of enjoying each other's company. Any theories on today's installment of "Real or Beard" from you?
"His managers, lawyers and publicists need to get something rolling for him or he won't be able to pay them. Jon doesn't have a big bank account loaded with money. He has to do something and this would have been funny, plus Hailey had no problem going along with the fake dates and pretending to be upset. She is along for the ride and enjoys being on TV."]
So, this was supposed to be funny? I'm pretty excited for karma to catch up with Jon and Hailey - I suspect that will be "funny" too!
However, another party-goer said Gerard was busy flirting with lots of women, and that they didn't lock lips. Either way, Lindsay's on-again off-again romance with DJ Samantha Ronson has quite clearly cooled, with Lindsay saying she is 'fed up with all the drama'. Gerard was also behaving like a single agent despite reports of a romance with 40-year-old Aniston, who co-stars with him in The Bounty. He has previously insisted they are just friends.
Gerard and Lindsay were among the celebrities, businessmen and socialites galore gathered for an exuberant party to mark the opening of the new five-star hotel in El Jadida, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.]
Damn, it's good to be a player! Sounds like the El Jadida went all out for the grand opening. They've certainly succeeded in securing a lot of press for themselves. What do you think of this rumored hookup? Actual event of convenient theory for the tabloid machine? This is La Lohan we're talking about, so I think this alleged dirty hookup could have been a total go!
