The prosecutor in the Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller domestic dispute case intends to fight the request from lawyers on both sides to dismiss the protection order that keeps Sheen from communicating with Mueller, OK! magazine is reporting.
Arnold Mordkin, Chief Deputy District Attorney in Pitkin County, Colorado, says, "In the case of domestic violence, we do want the victim to have a safety plan in place." The magazine also quotes Mordkin saying that as a matter of principle, "We always oppose lifting the protection order."
Judge James Berkley Boyd will hold a hearing on Monday morning at 10:30am, although Mordkin observed that it's not clear whether the hearing is to make a decision on the motion or merely to set a date for deciding. Mordkin explained that the protection order currently in place does NOT prevent Sheen from seeing his twin sons. It only prevents him from having direct contact with Mueller.]
Given that the new year is rapidly approaching, it looks like these folks will have no choice but to greet 2010 with a big ball of crazy.
Fox is trying to get $1 per month per subscriber from Time Warner to carry their broadcast network (cable companies currently retransmit broadcast stations for free) and the cable provider doesn't want to pay that much for their more than 8 million subscribers. They have countered with 30 cents per subscriber. The deadline for negotiations is December 31, and if a deal isn't reached, all the Fox channels from your Time Warner Cable service.
In an internal memo, News Corp (which owns Fox, of course) President and COO Chase Carey writes, "At this time, it looks like we will not reach an agreement and our channels may very well go off the air in Time Warner Cable systems at midnight tomorrow, December 31."
That sounds awesome! No more Fox News, even if you want it! No more Fox Business Channel, which no one wants. No big deal, right? We're trying to make the best of this situation, so here are some pros and cons of what would happen in a world without Fox:
PRO: We would never have to look at Peter Griffin's fat face on Family Guy ever again. CON: We will gouge our own eyes out if we don't get to see Sue Motherfucking Sylvester on Glee.
PRO: Finally, we won't have to watch the 11 millionth season of nip/tuck, which jumped the shark 10.5 million seasons ago. CON: Damages was just getting good!
PRO: We won't have to bother to learn what Fuel even is. CON: What if the next Jersey Shore is on Fuel? Oh man, we gotta get Fuel, even if it sounds like a shitty rip off of Red Bull rather than a cable channel.
PRO: Fox Sports en Español won't make us feel bad for forgetting all our high school Spanish. CON: We actually kinda like footie (and all the players!) so seeing the Fox Soccer Channel go would blow.
PRO: No more stupid dramas and crappy reality shows on Fox. CON: We'll have to watch even more CW than we already do, which might cause us to commit suicide or think that we're actually living inside a Gossip Girl episode.
PRO: We won't be lining Rupert Murdoch's pockets with cash. CON: We will be nothing if we can't make fun of American Idol. Give us our fucking Fox, bitches!]
I knew 2010 was going to be different, in a hugely good way - I just had no idea how good! Now this folks, is drama.

Jen hasn't said which category she'll present, but at the Oscars, she announced best animated feature -- even though Angie's movie Kung Fu Panda was a nominee. So she wouldn't shy away from presenting the best drama -- setting up the chance to give the award to Brad's film! Even if such a tense moment comes to pass, Jen's not worried. "Believe me," the insider says, "she's really looking forward to this."]
Why would she be "looking forward to this" exactly? It's not like Angie is in anyway repentant; and at the end of the day she still has Brad under her shirt-ripping thumb. The only way Jolie would be jealous of Aniston is if Jen were up for (and won) an Oscar and Angelina was somehow left out in the cold. Which, let's face it, is never gonna happen. I would love for Jen to have her cold dish of revenge served in Angie's face. But really, how can Jen one-up her after sleeping with John Mayer?
Last month Capenter was found guilty of the three felonies of receiving stolen property, theft in office and tampering with evidence after he testified that he took photos of a file that contained ultrasound pictures of Broderick and Parker's twins. He denied, however, that he intended to sell the items to the paparazzi. Carpenter's attorney says he'll appeal the decision. There's been no comment yet from either of Broderick's or Parker's camps.]
This of truly a case of "who can you trust" when you're a celebrity. I'm trying really hard right now to restrain myself from comparing the real life faulty cop to SATC's Mr. Big. Only instead of trying to steal baby photos, Mr. Big has stolen Carrie's heart. But then I remember that there is fact and there is fiction. Thank goodness for the occasional doses of reality!

I don't fault People magazine for doing whatever it took to get your photos with your bride, Danielle Deleasa, on their cover. That's their job--to try and get exclusives.
I fault you, Kevin! You are a huge star. And not just a regular huge star--but a HUGE teen star! You and your brothers are adored by multi-millions of teen girls around the world. You've sold over 8 million albums and most of those buyers have been under 20 years old.
I believe that when you have such an enormous fan base and are such a HUGELY popular star--you have an obligation to share with those fans.
That means giving a free, non-exclusive handout photo to the world's media, so all your fans can share in your Big Day--not just those people who buy one magazine. Especially one that doesn't even focus its content on your fans.
Kevin--I also want to be clear that I place the blame on you, not Danielle. After all your experience in the public eye--you are media savvy--not your new wife.
You should have been a fan-friendly class act like Ivanka Trump, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Ellen DeGeneres, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, and Julia Roberts to name a few--who all released wedding photos non-exclusively for all their fans to see.]
Dang, honey! Someone has got her panties in a bunch. As far as the bold "sell-out" labeling, it's a case of too little, too late. That tag happened when the first Jonas Brother CD was released.
Dec. 9, 2007: Michael Lohan "slapped Erin in the face twice because Erin accused him of giving her a fake watch on her birthday.
Feb. 2008: Michael "punched Erin in the mouth" because she had a male friend on Facebook.
March 2008: Michael "whipped a computer cord" at her face but she blocked it with her hand ... causing a laceration.
May 5, 2008: Michael "kicked Erin Muller in the ribs."
May 2008: Michael "kicked Erin Muller in the vagina, bruising it and causing substantial pain."
June 2008: Michael "spit in Erin's face, and beat her repeatedly with his fist." Then he "yelled at her to 'stop crying c*nt -- other people will see you -- if they see you, I will kill you!'"]
If you've ever wondered where Lindsay inherited her crazy from, just refer to the above. It appears that Michael has decided he's not responsible for any of the above actions. He's got a tape where Erin is yelling at him - so, naturally, it must be all her fault. Umm, not even in the slightest - but we're talking about some pretty skewed thinking here. Details, via Radar Online:
[Michael Lohan is getting revenge on his ex-fiancee, Erin Muller, the one way he knows how --by releasing an embarrassing audio tape. RadarOnline.com has obtained the exclusive audio, a recording Lohan made during a fight with Muller. On the tape you can hear her screaming and cursing at Lohan, who seems to remain pretty calm throughout, possibly because he's taping the whole thing.
At one point, Muller rips into Lohan, screaming, "if you're that pathetic that you need a f***ing tape recorder, because everyone knows the s*** you are." Other highlights include Muller hollering, "I thought you said you were going to f***ing castrate me!" Erin Muller filed court documents in Nassau County, NY on Monday, asking the court to drop Lohan's harassment allegations against her.]
It sounds like Lindsay has the right idea in cutting this guy out of her life. The funny thing in all of this - where nothing is funny - is that this tape only confirms Erin's side of the story, in my opinion. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that this guy is an asshole, to the core.

According to a police affidavit, Sheen claims the Christmas Day blowout was sparked when he told Mueller about a song he shares with one of his and ex-wife Denise Richards' two daughters. A source tells us the daughter is the oldest of the two, 5-year-old Sam.
The song apparently has something to do with a Christmas present Sheen bought for Sam. Sheen has told people that Mueller became upset and wanted to know why she and Sheen didn't have a similar song, the source says.
"Charlie says she is really jealous of his daughters, especially after he and Denise finally started getting along," the source says. The source also says Mueller has become increasingly suspicious of Sheen because of his past substance abuse issues and fondness for call girls. "Obviously the fight wasn't just about the song," the source says. "Nothing excuses what Charlie may have done, but there's more there."
The source said many around the couple believe that both of them need help. "They've got to think about those two little boys," the source said, referring to Sheen and Mueller's 9-month-old twin sons, Bob and Max. "But yeah, I think it will end in divorce."]
And the wicked roundup, via What Would Tyler Durden Do:
[Charlie Sheen has been arrested so many times it's hard to keep up, but at least 5 times for drug possession, soliciting prostitutes, and credit card fraud. He was not arrested when he shot Kelly Preston in the arm or when he allegedly threatened to kill Denise Richards and their kids or when he maybe killed a hooker.
Three days ago he was arrested again for second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief after he choked his wife and now it's being reported he threatened her with a knife. This sucks for her but Charlie Sheen is a violent, drug addicted piece of shit and always has been. Of course he tried to kill her. If I owned a health insurance company, that's one thing I'd look for. Do you smoke, do you drink, and are you married to Charlie Sheen? If you answered yes to any of those, fuck you. What am I, made out of money.]
Sheen has never changed his alleged relationship M.O., so this doesn't exactly come as a surprise. Not that it makes it okay, by a long shot. It seems weird to me that a guy with that kind of track record still keeps landing ladies. A quick Google search would alert even the softest heart that Charlie is not a good bet. One lady who could tame him? The countess of bad-ass, Ms. Angelina Jolie. At least she wouldn't shy away from the knife play or the kids from other wombs.
[Photo Credit: Once again, a couple in happier times. We seem to be saying that a lot around here lately...]
Kourtney: It feels amazing. It's just so indescribable. You don't get how good being a parent feels until it happens to you.
Scott: My first time holding him was definitely special. But holding him the second time was even more special, and the third time was even more special than that. I fall so much more in love with this kid every day. I can't imagine how much more in love with him I'm going to be by the time he's 5 or 10 or 20!
L&S: How was the labor itself?
Kourtney: It was surprisingly easy and just an incredible experience. I always thought your first is supposed to be really hard, but it was easy. I have an amazing doctor. He actually delivered me! The room environment was just so relaxing, and everyone I wanted to be there was there--Scott, my mom, Kim and Khloé. No one under 18 is allowed in, so my little sisters Kendall and Kylie couldn't come in. Actually, you're only allowed to have two people in the room because of the swine flu -- so we snuck Kim and Khloé in!
L&S: What is your daily routine like now?
Kourtney: We're on Mason's schedule, waking up every couple of hours to breast-feed. But it's fun to get up and see him. I miss him by the time I see him again.
L&S: Can you see having another baby in the future?
Kourtney: Right now I'm obsessed with Mason and want to give him all my time. But being with him has definitely made me think about having another one! Kim and I are 18 months apart. Growing up, we did everything together. It would be nice for Mason to have a little brother or sister that many months apart too.]
Will errant boyfriend Scott fall in line now that the baby is here, or is Kourtney in for more heartbreak? I'm sure we'll be privy to every dirty detail...
Tiger ultimately did leave his wife for Rachel as he promised in that rambling e-mail. He had to get busted first, but she doesn't care. She's getting paid handsomely for her services. It beats wrangling up celebrities for clubs. Meanwhile Rachel is modeling her bikini on the beach and issuing dumb denials to celebrity outlets. She has cover all her bases in case the Tiger gig runs out sooner rather than later.]
Good for them, I guess. It sounds like they deserve each other. My main concern is that Tiger's estranged wife, Elin Nordegren, gets a hefty settlement and finds love in the arms of someone much more deserving. Preferably someone wildly famous so that her happiness can be flaunted from the front page of tabloids and taunt Tiger for life.
And while her, err, doting parents can't agree on much, they both seem to think that Adam is a winner. "Dina really likes him," the source says. "She thinks he is 'good for her.'" Michael wasn't on the guest list for Ali's fete, but he too seemed pleased with Adam when asked about Linds' new man Sunday. "If he's a good guy and he has no addictions, and he's a good influence on her, then God bless him. It's a good thing," he told us.]
Apparently all it takes to be "good" for Lindsay is show up with a pulse. She has her expectations set high - at least something is set high. Meanwhile, here is another great blind item from the New York Post via Crazy Days & Nights. I'll leave it to your powers of deduction to decide how this item relates!
[Which male model is regretting he got carried away with a certain starlet? He succumbed to her aggressive seduction, didn't use protection and now worries he may have contracted an STD.]

And more from Paris herself, via Twitter:
[At home opening Christmas presents from my man. SO happy! He really spoiled me this year and gave me so many incredible presents! :) All the jewelry he bought me from 14 Karats Jewelry Store is so stunning! It's true Diamonds are a girl's best friend. I am speechless.]
I buy that Paris received diamonds for Christmas - what I don't believe is the fact that Doug actually bought them for her. What makes the story suspect, other than the obvious money issue, is the specific mention of the store where the jewelry was supposedly purchased. Methinks Hilton may have received the sparklers in exchange for a little promotion. What adds weight to my theory? Hilton's former pal and current nemesis, Kim Kardashian, is also Tweeting for cash. Details, courtesy of Crazy Days & Nights:
[Do you know PRNewser? They are a company that is paid to talk about other companies. Put out press releases and that kind of thing. Anyway, they did a press release for one of their clients, Ad.ly, and they interviewed the co-founder. Well, Ad.ly is known for bringing advertisers and celebrity Twitter posters together. He let it slip in the interview that Kim Kardashian gets $10,000 per Tweet and that she does one ad Tweet a day. Seriously? That many people want to buy what she buys? She does have 2M followers, but $50K a week? For just saying stupid crap like go buy a pair of shoes at such and such a place. So lets see 140 characters times 5 is what? 700 characters a week and she makes more than 90% of teachers do in a year. Why? Because she made a sex tape. While I admit she is attractive, she has no discernible talent. She doesn't sing or act or do anything that contributes positively to society. She has no athletic prowess. She has not invented anything. Yet, she makes over $2M a year just by posting one Tweet a day. I really need to f**k Ray J.]
It's clear that the route to the big bucks is a sex tape, a nominal education and breasts. Who says women are discriminated against?

The police have already questioned Hailey and her parents. I'm sure investigating the theft and damage of Jon Gosselin's property is at the top of the NYPD's "to-do" list this holiday season.
This week's National Enquirer reports that Jon Gosselin is four months behind on his rent and that he has been secretly pocketing Hailey's share while failing to pay the landlord. This news that the apartment was ransacked seems to come at a convenient time for Jon, who owes Hailey $90,000 plus her half of the rent that he stole. He's also now responsible for $13,000 a month in child support, which he can't afford.]
I'm pretty sure there's a picture of Jon next to the word "class" in the dictionary. Looks like he'd better re-gear his expectations to life as a civilian. Given that he's pissed off former boss TLC, Gosselin will now have to look for a "real job." Perhaps they're hiring at Ed Hardy...
[Photo Credit: Jon and Hailey in happier times when the motto, "The couple that smokes together, stays together" was all they needed.]
Pound told police that Winehouse punched and kicked him in the groin, and pulled his hair when he approached her about the disturbance and asked her to move to a private box. Thames Valley police launched an investigation and subsequently charged Amy with a public order offense and common assault -- her second in recent years.
Winehouse and her attorney appeared at the Buckinghamshire police station voluntarily on Wednesday afternoon and posted bail. The 26-year-old was ordered to appear in court on January 20, 2010 to answer the charges.
The singer's father, Mitch Winehouse, was reportedly livid when he found out about the newest charges. He blamed her bad behavior on her renewed relationship with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil. He said, "After just one day in Blake's presence, Amy reverted back to her wild ways." The troubled songstress escaped previous assault charges during a two-day court trial less than six months ago.]
Yes, let's blame Blake. There's no way Amy could possibly be responsible for her own actions! Meanwhile, it's comforting to know Amy is wrapping up 2009 much the same way she began it - as a mess.
"Rob and Kristen can't decide where to spend the holidays," dished one loose-lipped insider. "Kristen is keen for Rob to join her in Los Angeles, but he wants to spend Christmas in London -- with his family. "Rob wants things to be as normal as possible after a crazy 12-months. Kristen is not amused."
It was recently claimed that Pattinson and Stewart had been drifting apart because the hunky British star was refusing to commit to a serious relationship. "Rob doesn't want anything heavy right now, so he really has had enough of the whole thing and is spending a lot more time with Stephanie," a source told Britain's Now magazine earlier this month.
"He just wants to hang out with lesser-known friends and take time out from all the craziness in his life, as it's all got a bit too much. Even for Rob, the attention has been overwhelming and sometimes he just wishes it could all go away. He's become a lot more reclusive and there's a growing distance between him and Kristen."]
I'm sure they mean "come to blows" emotionally. I don't know who this Stephanie chick is that Showbiz Spy is referring to - unless it's Twilight author Stephanie Meyers. Psst, Rob - the books are already written. Kickin' it with the writer will not garner you extra screen time. Alas, these kids should do what myself and my honey intend to - surround ourselves with Christmas lights and booze while watching Bad Santa. It literally solves everything.
"The [settlement] shall not be filed in this proceeding due to the parties mutual desire to maintain their respective rights to privacy," the document reads. The settlement presumably divides their cash, property and other valuables.
Both Rimes, 27, and Sheremet, 29, will be legally single after their marital status officially ends on June 19, 2010. Their nearly eight-year marriage crumbled as Rimes began a relationship with actor Eddie Cibrian, who was married at the time to Brandi Glanville. Cibrian and Glanville are also divorcing.]
I think LeAnn is so anxious to move on with Eddie that she would agree to just about anything Dean's little heart desired. If that means the house in the hills and the DVD collection, well so be it! I'm sure we'll be seeing more of LeAnn flaunting Eddie around town soon - she seems mighty proud of her pilfered man.

Cruise and Sapir are old enemies. In 2001, the star sued Sapir for $100 million; Sapir had claimed that he had a video proving his "homosexual relationship" with Cruise. The suit was settled, and both parties acknowledged that the tape did not exist. Now, however, Sapir says that Pellicano illegally wiretapped his phone during the 2001 litigation. Bert Fields tells TMZ that "The allegations are absolute garbage." Cruise's rep did not reply to TMZ's request for comment.]
A curious event of things that make you go hmmm. Is it a case of Tom protesting too much - or a simple instance of trying to protect his ass assets? Meanwhile, Agent Bedhead has revealed the first poster for Cruise's flick with Cameron Diaz - the poorly named Knight & Day. Here's what Agent Bedhead has to say:
[Here's the teaser poster for the upcoming Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz action-romantic-comedy film, Knight and Day. So, my question for you is this: "Do you feel teased?" Yeah, me neither.]
Oh the tangled web we weave, when we practice to deceive - or something along those lines...
Leonardo DiCaprio, who still looks scrumptious, was hitting up the new L.A. hot spot Voyeur Thursday night. Leo was in major get-it-on mode, looking very single and very ready to mingle. He was wearing his signature baseball cap and chatting it up with a few good-looking girls who seemed thrilled beyond belief the semi stud was slobbering all over them. Fame, ain't it always the perfect seducer?
L.D. was there with... BFF Kevin Connolly, who also seemed on the prowl, per usual, and Kev's Entourage costar Jerry Ferrara, was at the guys' table, too. It was a veritable babe-netting posse! However: Jer must be going strong with Jamie-Lynn Sigler, 'cause he seemed more into a boys' night than the short-skirts multiplying around him like horny flies. But he sure didn't mind the attention of the myriad gals at their table. We're told he kept it "very appropriate," tho. Damn.
At a prime spot in the opposite corner was... Lindsay Lohan (who didn't interact with either of her rumored fictional hookups Leo or Kevin), who was actually surrounded by a gaggle of "friends." Quite the change from when we've see her in the past. Either LiLo has tamed her dramatic ways or people still want to be around life of the party. It's a toss-up. Who knows.
La Lohan looked like a hot mess in a black jacket and short dress with her blonder-than-usual hair down and wild. Our club spy tells us Lindsay's legs "looked like toothpicks." Shocker that Linds may not be healthy. While posted up with her hanger-on gang, L.L. was all smiles having a good time without being out of control. Hmmm, happy or loopy? Let's hope she keeps this sorta-class act up (for her anyways)!
Also at Voyeur, between the two tables was... Ryan Phillippe, who was with a guy friend and a few other ladies. The girls were quite obviously waiting to be reeled in by the two handsome fellas, as these chicks hovered over them, hungry eyes and sashaying hips, included.
"[Ryan] didn't exactly look like he was missing his girlfriend," reports the clubber. His GF in question would be Abbie Cornish. So does this mean there's trouble in paradise for the two? Maybe since Gyllenspoon is no more, he wants to woo Reese back? Psh, hardly.]
I'd love to see LiLo join Leo's famed party-posse - they're both chick magnets who love a champagne fueled night out. What do you say, Leo? How about opening up the ranks?
After unsuccessful attempts to revive Murphy, she was pronounced dead at 10:04 a.m., upon arrival at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center. According to the L.A. County Coroner, a death investigation will be launched, including an autopsy, despite strong objections by the deceased woman's husband.
Murphy married British screenwriter Simon Monjack in 2007 -- the couple had no children. Her rep released a brief statement from Murphy's family: "In this time of sadness, the family thanks you for your love and support. It is their wish that you respect their privacy."
Past boyfriend Ashton Kutcher wrote this message on his Twitter account today: "See you on the other side kid...2 day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany's family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon."
Murphy's estranged father, Angelo Bertolotti, told the AP, "She was just an absolute doll since she was born...Her personality was always outward. Everybody loved her very much." The former mob member served prison time on federal drug charges and hasn't seen his daughter in several years, according to US magazine.]
The actress had experienced her fair share of troubles in the past years, most recently getting kicked off a film for alleged bad behavior. Many assumed that her husband, Simon Monjack, contributed to her bad luck by allegedly being an unsavory influence on Brittany. Despite strenuous objects from her shady hubby, an autopsy is supposedly already underway. Brittany was always a bubbly presence and I'd hoped she's be able to make a comeback - but now we can only hope she's in a more peaceful place.
The couple broke up, but then got back together when she found out that she was pregnant. Now, there's a third party involved, Premo Stallone, who says that he could be the father.
A Kardashian pal says that Kourtney hooked up with Premo twice while she was apart from Scott. Now we know that she definitely has a type: Douche. When he was asked of the possibility of being the baby daddy, Premo said, "You could say that, yeah."]
Oooh la la, drama for the mamma! Way to ensure a pay-raise for the Kardashian clan. And to think Kim used to be the most popular one. Move aside, the sisters are coming... That sounds a lot dirtier than I actually intended, for once!
Do you remember that little nugget about Beyonce's dad getting slapped with a paternity suit? That means he allegedly fathered a child with a women who was not his wife of twenty-nine years, for those of you who haven't yet had coffee. This information dropped months ago - and was buried rather quickly. Well guess what news broke yesterday? Tina Knowles (Beyonce's mamma) has filed for divorce from Matthew Knowles. Though they claim the paternity issue has nothing to do with it, it's difficult to believe that it wouldn't play some kind of factor. Details, via Us Weekly:
[Following Friday morning's report that Tina Knowles filed for divorce from Mathew Knowles in November, a source close to the showbiz family confirms to Usmagazine.com, "It's true." The parents to Beyonce and Solange Knowles have been married for 29 years. Court papers also confirm the divorce filing took place in Houston, Tex. on Nov. 11.
"It's a rough time for the family -- especially over the holidays," the source tells Us. "The kids are sad, but it's been unraveling for some time." And while infidelity reports have circulated, the pal clarifies that the divorce "really wasn't about affairs." Instead, Tina, 55, and Mathew, 58, simply "drifted apart" and led "busy, separate lives." (Mathew manages his daughters' music careers, while Tina heads up the House of Dereon fashion line with Beyonce.) "They will try to make it cordial. They put their kids first, and will still be around each other." The estranged couple also have a grandchild: Solange, 23, has a four-year old son, Daniel.]
Meanwhile Jude Law chats about his three children, forgetting that he has a fourth. Oh yeah, that's because he barely knows the fourth child's mother and most likely doesn't give a shit about either one of them. More deets, via Us Weekly:
[Oopsies! Jude Law lost track of how many children he's fathered during a Thursday appearance on Late Show With David Letterman. The actor, 36, has three children with ex-wife Sadie Frost, and became a Dad for the fourth time this September, when his ex-girlfriend Samantha Burke gave birth to their daughter, Sophia.
But little Sophia didn't cross his mind while chatting Thursday about his holiday plans. "I usually try to take the children on a bit of an adventure," Law told Letterman of his traditions. (This year, he says they're relaxing on a beach.) When the late-night comedian followed up to ask "how many kids?" Law replies "three," and fails to correct himself.
When Burke, a 24 year-old aspiring actress, announced her pregnancy in July, Law initially disputed the paternity claims. The Oscar-nominated star soon came around, and his rep released a statement confirming that he was the father, and that he intended "to be a fully supportive part of the child's life."]
Aw - the irony that Jude flubbed his kiddie count on Letterman's show - and Dave didn't correct him! It's been reported that Jude still has not seen daughter Sophia since her birth in September. And it appears the little tyke won't be receiving any gifts from her poppa for Christmas! Poor kid - it's not her fault Jude was hopped up on cold medicine (Jude and Samantha allegedly hooked up while he was recovering from a cold in NYC). It seems Samantha was delusional enough to believe that Law would flee to her side when discovering she was to bear his child. Guess who's surprised? No one but her...
Just in time for Christmas... Kate and Jon Gosselins divorce is final! Yesterday officially marked the end of their ten-year union. Now will begin a new, hopefully much quieter chapter, for the once arbiters for all things family on reality television. Details, via Us Weekly:
[Jon and Kate Gosselin's ten-year marriage is now history. TMZ reports that Judge Arthur Tilson has signed the final divorce papers, severing marital ties between Jon, 32, and, Kate, 34.
On Wednesday an arbitrator ruled how the former spouses would divide their real estate and other assets. While most of those details remain confidential, Kate's attorney confirmed that the former reality mom "will continue to reside with all eight of her children in the former marital home" in Wernersville, Penn. Kate noted, "I am very relieved that our divorce has been finalized, and I look forward to the New Year, focusing on our children" and "restructuring our lives."
It won't be Jon's last time in court, however. Last Thursday Dec. 10, Jon was ordered by a Maryland judge to stop making media appearances. TLC claims the reality dad had been violating a contract with the network.
TLC aired the final episode of Jon and Kate Plus Eight Nov. 23. Kate admitted to the cameras that her new life as a single mom was a struggle. "Don't kid yourself," she said. "When I'm driving to get school supplies with the kids or try on shoes . . . it always crosses my mind that I should be in the passenger seat and Jon should be driving. Every single time."]
I expect George Clooney to overthrow Elisabeta Canalis anyday now. Clearly a more available hot lady is now on the market. I'm talking about Jon, of course.
In the Dec. 28 issue of Star, we reveal that there was an A-list name in Tiger's little black book. Just days before Jessica's split with Tony Romo, she had a sizzling meeting with the fallen golf star at the AT&T National Pro-Am golf tournament in Bethesda, Md. "Tiger liked what he saw and let her know it," a source tells Star.
Since Jess had been fighting with Tony -- who was Tiger's golf partner at the July tournament -- she gave as good as she got. "Jessica said that she felt like Tony wasn't paying attention to her, so she was like, 'What the heck!' " says the source. "She decided to have fun with Tiger whether it bothered Tony or not." Phone numbers were exchanged -- email addresses too.]
It sounds fairly innocuous - and plausible. Jessica and Tony's romance was rocky at best - I could see her trying to make Romo jealous, in an innocent fashion. Simpson doesn't agree. In fact, she's suing Star Magazine! Details, via Crazy Days & Nights:
[This week Star Magazine has a picture of Jessica Simpson and Tiger Woods posing for a photo together. According to Star, it was much more than just a photo and that the pair were an item so to speak. Well, Jessica was so upset about being romantically linked to Tiger that she is apparently taking legal action against the magazine. According to E!, Jessica's lawyer has already sent a letter to Star asking them to retract the story. Star used a lot of innuendo and double talk, but the actual words they used just said Tiger flirted with her. I can believe that. The actual quote was "Tiger liked what he saw and let her know it." I'm guessing Tiger could have easily done something like that.]
Though a mild flirtation could have easily taken place, I could see why Jessica wouldn't want to be associated with a cadre of whores. Especially when Tiger didn't make a hole in one, in this case!
"Angelina decided about four months ago that she really wanted to try to get pregnant again," an insider reveals to Life & Style. "She basically told Brad that if it happens, it happens and that she wasn't going to concern herself with birth control. Angie's most at peace when a baby is coming." Just two months ago, Angie freely admitted to the British magazine Stylist her desire to expand the diverse Jolie-Pitt clan. "I can see further additions to the family -- both adopted and our own," she said.]
Of course, there's the other side of the story which includes the theory that baby seven is a trap in which to ensure that Brad Pitt sticks around. Like six couldn't do the job? I think we'll always have conflicting reports about these two - which is probably just the way they like it!

"I hate to sound cold but any kid of mine who pulls this s**t has lost her position..." Love, 45, rants on her Facebook page. "She was deceptive, she lied and she's lying to herself... My daughter is not always honest." Love also says her daughter isn't as rich as she thinks she is, adding that she is "clearly deluded" if she thinks she can buy her grandmother a "small house in L.A." Says Love, "I'd love to see how that works ... She thinks she has all this money. The point is, I have all the money she has."
Love insists her daughter "is a wonderful kid," but she has "bad people around her and wants it both ways." She then names several of Kurt Cobain's family members. She even tells her daughter that her grandmother "killed your father," Kurt Cobain. "You could've asked for emancipation..." Love tells her daughter. "You realize this will put you in juvenile family circus three times in your little life?" Before signing off, Love tells her daughter, "I love you and always will unconditionally."
UPDATE: TMZ reports that a judge has issued a temporary restraining order against Love -- prohibiting the singer from having any direct or indirect contact with her daughter. A hearing will take place January 5 to determine whether the order should be made permanent.]
As I've said before, I'm surprised it took this long! I know a lot of people who were acquainted with Courtney back in her Portland days - and not one person had a positive thing to say about her. We were all taking bets on when The Bean would become disenchanted with her mom - I guess will have to donate the money to charity because not one of us believed that she would be able to stick around as long as she has!
Congratulations! How are you feeling? Kendra: Thanks. I have labor brain. I forgot everything that happened! Hank: I am in straight awe, trust me.
How did you prepare for coming to the hospital? Kendra: The good thing about being induced is that it's like planning a trip, just very calm. We ate a huge dinner before we came to the hospital. I ate a whole batch of brownies because I was nervous. No wonder he's 9 pounds!]
Well, this answers my question in who was going to win the cover story race between Kendra and Kourtney Kardashian. I'm sure Kourtney is getting styled as we speak for her own cover shoot. As for the baby salaries, I'm sure it will be revealed soon which family earned more. Neither of these ladies is particularly picking about withholding details!
But the star has now admitted that his windfall had little to do with an eye for art. Grant, 49, had been on a two-day drinking spree when he ordered an assistant to bid for the painting at an auction in New York. He said: 'And to my horror, she did, and even worse, got it.' He added: 'It all began with drink. I'd been having a drunken dinner with my father the night before, and I said, "We ought to go see my brother Jamie. You know, the Concorde's amazing." 'And he said, "I hear it is.'' So I bought him a Concorde ticket and we went. We had lunch, drank a lot of beer. And I was thinking about some stuff in the Sotheby's auction and I saw the Liz Taylor. I slightly regret selling it now, even though it made me rich.' The top price paid for any of the pictures before Grant made his profit was £7.7million in 2005.
The actor admitted not all of his drunken gestures were as well rewarded. Far from enjoying the supersonic trip to New York, his father was unimpressed. Grant said: 'Halfway across the Atlantic, he's saying, "Well, it's all very nice, but frankly I prefer Air Kuwait" - his usual way of getting to New York.']
Hugh, I know we've gotten off to a rocky start - but I think we can make this work. A two-day drinking spree while buying fine art - well, let's just say those are two of my favorite things. Add bacon and that's my perfect day. Oh, and it if helps things, I'd like you to know that I'd never ever complain about flying first class.
"[Hudson] wanted more camera time each and every game," the pal tells Usmagazine.com. "She would always want to be styled before games and she'd insist on front-row seats." Her motivation, the friend says, was more of a PR move than genuine devotion. "It was a turnoff to have a girlfriend who always wanted to be on camera," the source quips. "Alex wanted someone who was more interested in building a long-term relationship than just building their profile."
For those confused by the timeline of the couple's split and who initiated what, the A-Rod friend insists that "he broke up with her over a week ago," but they continued to spend time together publicly after the fact. "Alex wanted to end this relationship well over a month ago," the source says, but the baseball star, 34, didn't want to disrupt Hudson's premieres and promotional events for her new film Nine. "He felt that would be counterproductive and unfair to her."
And while many reports claim that a jealous Rodriguez "smothered" Hudson, 30, the friend suggests the opposite was the case, observing, "She seemed compelled to track and follow his every move" during his busy pre- and post-season schedule.
Ultimately, the pal says that Hudson tried to give Rodriguez "an ultimatum" and to "fast track" the relationship. "He's just coming off of a 13-year relationship with his ex-wife and a recent divorce," the friend points out. "He has two lovely children with his ex-wife, and that requires a certain amount of responsibility. She gave him ultimatums that a newly divorced father can't meet."
The friend says that things ended amicably -- and maturely. "They're two mature adults. She did take the relationship seriously, and he has a lot of respect for her. They had some really wonderful times together."]
I can't tell which lessons Kate is having difficulty learning - how not to smother a man, how to enjoy being on her own or how to stop dating athletes with gigantic egos. Did time in the saddle with Lance Armstrong teach her nothing? Meanwhile Kate's hot film, Nine, debuts on Christmas Day. Don't do her any favors A-Rod, I think the movie will do just fine - whether or not you're on the red carpet with Hudson.
In "Lohan House" the Lohans are still relevant, Lindsay is still getting work and "Living Lohan" is still on the air. Coupled with their unwanted luxury goods, the dubious Lohan "news" is enough to make you feel a tinge sorry for the youngest Lohans: Ali, 15, and Cody, 13. (There's also Michael Lohan, Jr., 21, a student at Ithaca College who Jezebel calls "refreshingly normal" and Lindsay of course. Anyone that's no longer a teenager can fend for themselves in that family, and they obviously do.)]
Next up, personal appearances at your own home or holiday party by Lindsay herself! Bid on a package deal - some come with gowns and allegedly stolen jewelry!
A source said: "Last week they put the wheels in motion to live together again. They have told staff that they are in love and will be moving back to London in the spring and they will be living together as a couple once again." The insider says Sienna has been the facilitator of them getting back together. "Jude was reluctant at first for anything to happen," says the source. "But Sienna convinced him that she was still in love with him."
This has to be the worst idea we've heard in a while. Both Sienna and Jude can't hold down a relationship for more than a few months. And the whole reason they broke up was because of his cheating! We hope one of them snaps out of it.]
I hope they don't snap out of it - think of all the stories to come if they stick together!

On Friday, five moving boxes were seen being moved from Tiger and wife Elin's main residence in the Orlando suburb of Windermere, TMZ reported. On Saturday, Elin was photographed pumping gas into her car outside Orlando. Her wedding ring was noticeably missing.
On Sunday, Woods' private plane departed for Elin's home country of Sweden, but Elin and Tiger Woods were reportedly not onboard when it landed.
News of Woods' and Uchitel's close proximity over the weekend came as mutual friends told Fox411.com that the two are still very much in love and still very much an item, and they have no plans on ending their relationship anytime soon. Uchitel has publicly denied having an affair with Woods, but friends said he has paid her millions of dollars to remain tight-lipped about the details of their affair, and that the two remain committed to one another.
"Tiger and Rachel are still very much in love," an insider said. "They are still in communication and they're just trying to figure out how to make it work so they can be together." Uchitel's rep was not immediately available for comment.
In announcing on Friday that he was taking an "indefinite break from professional golf," Woods acknowledged being unfaithful to his wife and said he would devote the foreseeable future to repairing their relationship, if possible, and to "focus my attention on being a better husband, father and person."
According to the terms of Tiger and Elin Woods' prenuptial agreement, payments are graduated; if Elin stays in their marriage for another two years, she'll receive an additional $20 million. "It looks like Elin's going to stay around, at least for now. But Tiger still loves Rachel and wants to be with her either way," the friend said. ]
Did Tiger and Elin pull the old bait and switch? Were they hoping the paparazzi would follow an empty jet to Sweden? Because that would be hilarious. At least a lot of spouses would be receiving some kick-ass chocolate for Christmas. Meanwhile, I do believe the whispers that Rachel and Tiger are still involved. Tiger won't be changing his stripes anytime soon! Not like you haven't heard that one before. Here's another gem, via my friend Julia: "What's the difference between Tiger Woods and Santa Claus? Santa stopped at three ho's." Oh yes, the jokes - just like Woods - won't be stopping anytime soon...
Still, the sudden breakup might be a blessing in disguise for Molly, who had been growing disenchanted with Eckhart. "Molly was surprised that he ended it with her - and by phone - but she was starting to realize he's not right for her. He's so closed off from the world," says the source. "She wants someone a bit more chill. Besides, she feels she deserves a guy who isn't afraid to tell the world they're in love!"]
Geez, Aaron - do you want to pull that stick out of your ass? It's not like Molly is anyone to be ashamed of dating. Oh well, it's best to know that a love interest is capable of being so cold-hearted sooner rather than later.
The actress is to grace the pages of Playboy magazine come December 18, in what is meant to be a testimony that she solved every little thing that was wrong with her body. The spread is not meant to be regarded as a "in your face" type of thing, but rather as a silent statement from Tara that she realized she had done wrong in the past and took the necessary action to fix everything.
In the recent interview, Miss Reid also speaks about her movie career, which is again seeing progress. She has two films, a comedy and a drama, out in theaters soon, so it only felt like the next logical step for her was to show people that she had also fixed her body, so that people would stop insisting on the matter. As fans must know, Tara was the victim of much abuse and criticism in the media for ruining her body with plastic surgery, her breasts and abdomen in particular.
Speaking of which, Tara compares the experience to having an arm broken. "It wasn't a good surgery, it happens sometimes. I got it fixed and now I'm OK, and I want people to know that I'm OK. I've been OK now for the last five or six years but people only show old pictures which is so unfair and that's part of the reason why I did the Playboy shoot - to show the world this is me and this is what I look like," Reid says in the interview.
"I'm in my 30s now and I feel I'm at the best age in my life - mentally, physically and spiritually - and I'm proud of it," the actress goes on to explain. The spread should be illustrative of that and of the new stage in her life.]
I'm a bit conflicted. One on hand, if a man had partied as hard as she had he wouldn't be taking the same kind of heat. On the other hand, I feel like we've heard this "whoops, I'm sorry" thing from her before and nothing has changed but the size of her tits. I think Reid might be out of step with the times. Perhaps she should team up with Lindsay Lohan for the straight to DVD bin - at least she'd be getting a paycheck!
A massive row at the couple's mansion is thought to have sparked the November car crash that exposed the star's rampant secret life, said to include hookers. Tiger, 33, announced on Friday he was taking an indefinite break from golf in a bid to save his marriage to Swedish ex-model Elin and become a "better husband, father and person." But reports this weekend said Elin, 29, has already spoken to divorce lawyers and is planning a split in the New Year.
She hid her pain behind sunglasses as she made the car trip from the couple's £1.7million home in Windermere with Sam, two, and Charlie, ten months. A source said: "She's putting on a brave face but she's hurting terribly. "Tiger is doing everything he can to save his marriage but I can't see them getting through this. The wounds are too deep."]
Let's see - she's twenty-nine, absolutely gorgeous and already set for life. I'd like to see her hookup with a hot movie star, where her wildly happy new relationship could be flaunted in Tiger's face at all times. That's what I want for Elin - because I'm petty that way.
The picture only accounts for a portion of the fundraising shortfall, but Bagstad said the band still feels let down by Tiger. The kids and their parents will now have to make up the difference -- a price some families can not afford. "I kind of feel bad for them because it's a once-in-a-lifetime trip. You get really excited and learn that you can't go," said Morgan Anderson, an 8th grade band member.]
Well, if there's one thing Fox News is known for, it's being fair and balanced. Now you know the domino effect - Tiger and his cavalcade of whores means school children can't fulfill their dreams. What a selfish bastard.
Everybody around the nation and world, throw your hands up and holla! TLC executive Edward Sabin testified against Jon on Thursday, saying the douchebag's recent actions - like hosting a pool party in Vegas, taking his girlfriend to France and talking to celeb gossip media outside of his home - were "embarrassing." A rep for TLC said today that, "The Court has validated our view that Mr. Gosselin has a valid, binding contract and that he has breached it repeatedly... we look forward to the next phase of the litigation, which is to pursue our claim for damages." In summation, it looks like Jon's f--ked. We're sure you're devastated.]
I will not miss him one bit. He's definitely going the way of the Spencer around here - persona non grata. I'm sure Jon will reunite with Michael Lohan in some skeevy attempt for more press - but I shall not take the bait this time. Unless he starts dating Lindsay, in which case I'll definitely have to throw in my two cents!
Happily, Lindsay is far more forthcoming than the Beeb, and her Twitter feed - live from India - has the flavour of a lobotomised captain's log. "Over 40 children saved so far, within one day's work," reads a Wednesday entry. "this is what life is about . . . Doing THIS is a life worth living!!! Oh, and I'm talking about being in India."
1. Is the person who commissioned this programme unwell?
2. Do you believe this to be some sort of talent coup? Are you even dimly aware that Lindsay can't get arrested in Hollywood (except literally)?
3. Are you now providing an image-laundering services for starlets whose careers are in foreclosure, in which impoverished subcontinentals are co-opted to play supporting roles?
4. And finally, something of a philosophical point: which do you think is more offensive - Lindsay Lohan being used as a plot device via which BBC3 can examine human trafficking, or human trafficking being used as a plot device via which BBC3 can examine the continuing Lindsay Lohan story?]
Click here to read more on this well-educated Lohan slam. If you think that's all of the story, you're crazier than Lindsay. This is a Lohan we're talking about - of course there's more. Remember when the rumor broke that Lindsay allegedly made out with Cash Warren (Jessica Alba's husband)? Linds immediately went on the defensive, braying that it absolutely was not true. Why then is she Tweeting Cash while on her child-saving mission in India? Details, via Lainey Gossip:
[As you know, Lindsay Lohan is alleged to have made out with Cash Warren, married to Jessica Alba, at a club one night. She insists it's not true. Now she's is in India, supposedly saving children, and as soon as she got off the plane, she posted a message for him on her Twitter: "landed!" So if you're Lilo, and you're trying to deny that you're rubbing up against another woman's husband, would he be the first person you tweet at to let him know you've arrived in India? You would if you wanted people to keep thinking it. You would if you wanted to mess around. You would if you are, at this point, a desperate loser angling for his attention, unable to call him, and getting no response via email. And it's not like Alba wouldn't find out. Alba is on Twitter too. Last night she (the sweet "wifey") made dinner for Cash (that name!) who boasted about it on his own Twitter. Which Lilo would have read. And her response is to jam herself in there to announce to him that she's safe at her destination...?]
LiLo is like a shark. Just when you think it's safe to go in the water again... you find out the water is teeming with STDs.
The Vicious Kind is both written and directed by former Neil LaBute protege, filmmaker Lee Toland Krieger, of only the 2006 film December Ends previously. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year (in 2009). And it also just landed two Independent Spirit Awards nominations for Best Screenplay and Best Lead Actor. The Vicious Kind will be opening in very limited theaters starting on December 11th.]
This is rumored to be a breakout, leading-man role for Adam - which I hope turns out to be the case. Anyone who can steal the show from Will Ferrell (another fave), as Scott was able to do in Step Brothers, deserves a break!
A source told Page Six: "He certainly didn't look like a man with a girlfriend. He was partying in the upstairs VIP area with his best friend, Trace Ayala, Brett Ratner and a group of girls. The girls were all over him, fighting to give him their numbers, and he seemed to be enjoying it. There was one model-type blonde he chatted to for a while.
"At one point, a bodyguard did not recognize Ayala and kept him out of the VIP area, so Timberlake fired him on the spot. Around 1:30 a.m., Timberlake left along with Ayala, Ratner and a group of girls, including the model blonde, and headed to the Boom Boom Room."
Timberlake has been fending off rumors that he and Hollywood beauty Biel, who's been filming "The A-Team," are in trouble over his flirting. They put on a display of unity last month at a Jay-Z concert in LA. They also denied a report that their three-year romance was over. Biel said in an interview last month, "You have to have a sense of humor about the whole thing."
Earlier on Tuesday night, Timberlake attended an event at Skylight Studio and was careful to sit far away from Rihanna, who denied rumors they hooked up while working on her album. A rep for Timberlake said, "We do not comment on Justin's private life." A rep for Biel didn't get back to us.]
First of all, I thought Justin and Jessica broke up ages ago. Second of all, it clearly pays to have a dick (in a box) when "hanging" with Timberlake. He'll allegedly cheat multiple times on his supposed girlfriend - but he'll fire a security guard at the drop of the hat for cheating his best friend out of a few moments of VIP action. Seems like quite a disparity in the ratio of respect is at work there!
A source said that they were spotted at a Starbucks in Los Angeles and the duo were all over each other. The snitch said, "It was obvious something was going on between them. Benji stood next to Holly with his arm around her. He was rubbing her lower back and the top of her butt, and she was hanging on his shoulder. They were laughing and flirting the entire time. They couldn't take their hands off each other!"]
Isn't Holly a grazillion years older than Benji? Wikipedia results say no, but I still feel like she managed to shave a few years off somewhere along the way. As for Benji, going from Paris to Holly isn't much of a stretch. At least it's familiar terrain!
OK! has learned that Jessica is crazy about Smashing Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan since she connected with him at a party on Nov. 6. The singer hasn't had much luck with guys since her divorce from Nick Lachey in 2005, but she feels a connection with Billy.
"She has completely fallen for Billy and his easygoing, smart attitude," a close friend of Jess said. "She says she wants to take things a lot further." On Sept. 11 Jessica tweeted, "My friend, Billy Corgan, has a pure and enlightening outlook on faith. Go to his new website!"
Her friends said Jessica has "secretly been crushing on him for months and felt there was a connection." Jessica spent an evening in November at a friend's party in L.A. flirting with Billy. "As the night went on," an eyewitness said, "Things got more intense and they talked with their faces just inches apart."
"We do worry that she is on the rebound," an insider explained. "But she is a big girl and capable of making her own decisions."]
The writers at OK! need to settle down and stop jacking off Ashlee Simpson. Then again the "adoring husband" statute has been eased since the dawn of the Tigering we've taken lately. Pete Wentz seems absolutely upstanding, when cast in that shadow. Moving on to the more fun opinion piece, courtesy of Celebitchy:
[I heard or read this rumor a few days ago, and I didn't write anything about it because at this point, it seems like people are just picking names out of a hat and putting them beside Jessica Simpson. But things have changed... and now it looks like Jessica may actually be dating Billy Corgan, lead singer and lead guitarist for The Smashing Pumpkins. Billy is 42 years old, an indie rock god, divorced, and he used to date and live with Courtney Love. Before and after Kurt Cobain!
Now Ken Baker at E! has a source confirming this sh-t! Can you believe it? The source says: "She has fallen hard and is smitten...[they are] officially dating." The source adds that Jessica's close friends and family are thisclose to giving up on Jessica's love life: "[They think] he's just another in an endless string of Jessica's boyfriends. They think he's too old for her. No one takes any of her boyfriends seriously anymore because she has had so many. They're sick of all of them being 'the one.' " Ouch. With that kind of bitchiness, I'm thinking the "source" is Ken Paves? No, no - he loves Jessica, really he does. It sounds more like Ashlee.]
Ashlee does have a special way of giving her sis backhanded compliments - a cover for all the pent-up rage she experienced when she wasn't "the cute one." Anyone remember how she "defended" Jessica's weight? Enough said. But this post isn't about Ashlee, damnit. Many have wondered what Jessica and Billy could possibly have in common. A friend of mine came up with the perfect answer - big egos and small brains. Let's take bets on how long it takes before this thing implodes...
TMZ is reporting that sources attached to Health Central Hospital are saying that Tiger was admitted the day after Thanksgiving because of an apparent overdose. Careless pill taking or attempted suicide? A hospital employee states that the fifth floor of the hospital was on lock down after Woods arrived. Tiger was registered under the alias William Smith and was admitted to the intensive care unit, with his wife Elin by his side.
Paramedics suspected drugs at the scene and they questioned Tiger's wife about what he might have taken. Elin gave the paramedics two bottles of pills that she quickly retrieved from their home; one was the sleep aid Ambien and the other Vicodin. Tiger was reportedly put on a breathing tube to support his depressed respiration. The sources stated that they changed Tiger's alias after a few hours fearing people would find out that he was at the hospital.]
What an odd alias to use at the hospital. My mind, much like everyone else's, immediately jumped to Will Smith. I'm sure he doesn't appreciate being even remotely associated with this mess! I personally don't think this was a suicide attempt. It's been well documented that Tiger enjoyed taking various pills before engaging in sex. Perhaps he was hoping for a night of marital bliss before things went awry the evening after Thanksgiving. Needless to say, Elin needs to put on some sneakers and run. Anyone who could do all this to his wife does not deserve to be married. If you're capable of having unprotected sex and then going home to the mother of your children - well, you probably should be single.
It turns out that the tattoo, which reads "Just Breathe", is a dedication to Miley's close friend Vanessa, who passed away from Cystic Fibrosis three years ago. Cystic Fibrosis is a devastating chronic disease that is usually found in children. It causes progressive disability, lung blockages and various other horrible symptoms, often leading to the death of infants, children and young adults. Which means that a whole shitload of bloggers are now one step closer to hell. Congratulations, I'll see you all there.
Miley also has "Just Breathe" on the neck of one of her guitars. "Just Breathe" is the slogan for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which Miley Cyrus is a big supporter of.]
Aww, get all warm and cuddly for a sec. Okay, we're back. Hot on the heels of the sweet comes the naughty. Details, via Perez Hilton:
[Maybe she thought she could pass for over 21 with her new tattoo? Miley Cyrus tried to talk her way into Club LIV at the Fontainbleau in Miami on Wednesday night but was flat out denied! Cyrus showed up to the club with her "posse", but her parade was quickly rained on when she was reminded by the doorman that she's still a minor. It's about time a club actually lived up to their 21-and-over rule! Although we're dying to witness Miley Gone Wild!]
Whew - we've returned to familiar terra firma. Until Miley's next surprise, that is...
The new issue of Us Weekly reports that NYC club manager Uchitel, 34, bragged to friends of her flings with the rich and famous -- Uchitel's conquests apparently included Woods plus Ryan Seacrest, Jeter and the married Boreanaz.
A boastful Uchitel allegedly forwarded along a bizarre, extremely private email from Woods, 33, in which he referenced her famous flings. Woods' email, Uchitel's friend tells Us, details the athlete's "disturbing dream."
"I had a dream we were married and I was leading the tournament," Woods reportedly wrote. "I came home, excited to see you, and there you were in the bedroom getting f--ked by Derek and David [Boreanaz]. Some part of me thinks you would like that."
The married athlete then explains how wired he is from his X-rated vision of Uchitel with TV and baseball hunks. "Now I can't get back to sleep. My body is tired, but my mind is awake. Need an Ambien."]
You may remember that Rachel first made the gossip scene recently when she was named as the other woman in the David Boreanaz case of the affair. This allegedly went down while Boreanaz's wife was pregnant. It seems that this supposed email from Tiger would ironically confirm that little tidbit. In other news, David Letterman sent a generous gift basket to the Woods' home in thanks for taking the heat off.
[Photo Credit: Rachel Uchitel, gatekeeper at some of the hottest NYC and Las Vegas clubs, wants to know if you're on the list. That has quite an ironic ring to it now...]
According to Mindy's sister, Lynn Lawton, Mindy was dazzled by Tiger, so when he called the restaurant and asked her to meet him at the Blue Martini - a favorite haunt of Tiger's, she was excited and nervous.
Mindy and her sister met Tiger in the VIP room of the club, where he was sitting with a group of Orlando and Los Angeles basketball players. Tiger and Mindy left the club separately, and she followed him to his home in a gated development, where she was waved in by the guard. She told her sister the next day that she had sex with him in his house and "he was extremely good."
Mindy claims she and Tiger had sex all over the house, but never in the bedroom. According to the former waitress, the golfer had a penchant for the color red, and their sex was passionate and urgent. Their affair, during which time Tiger's wife Elin became pregnant, continued for a year, when Tiger suddenly stopped calling.
In an investigation by the Daily Mail, it has been discovered that a tabloid had been following Tiger and Mindy, and had photos of the two of them having sex in a church parking lot. When Tiger's management team learned of the incriminating pictures, they went to work and struck a deal with the tabloid, getting the story buried. In return for the tabloid's silence, Tiger appeared on the August 2007 cover of a sister publication, Men's Fitness, giving a rare interview where he gave tips on diet, exercise and weightlifting.
As far as Mindy knew, Tiger just dropped out of her life. Had Tiger's affair with Rachel Uchitel not been exposed, it is likely his trysts with Mindy would have never seen the light of day. It is unclear what has happened to the photos taken in the church parking lot.]
I'm guessing the church parking lot sex photos (never thought I'd be typing that) were given to Tiger in exchange for the blackmail-inspired story. That's usually how those things work, if I'm remembering "Basic Plots 101." How has Tiger's life suddenly turned into a Jackie Collins novel? The poor guy obviously need help.
[Photo Credit: Mindy Lawton, the latest in Tiger's stable.]
When did the alleged trysts begin? The young woman claims that she and Woods hooked up back in 2004 when she was twenty-years-old and they reportedly continued to see each other for another 2 years.
The former cocktail waitress, we're seeing a pattern here, has hired Michael O'Quinn as her lawyer. He plans to go public soon with his clients story. Note to Tiger: this is where you step in and offer her money for her silence.]
Click here for pictures of the latest "lady" to step forward. Of course my favorite tale to come out of all this is "the crazy Ambien sex." I never realized sleeping pills were sexy! I've learned so much about infidelity, thanks to Mr. Woods! Details, via Radar Online:
[Tiger Woods secret extramarital life continues to yield new scandals. Rachel Uchitel, the first woman publicly named as Tiger Woods' mistress, told friends that she did drugs with the golfing legend before they had sex, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
That's the second too-close drug mention for one of America's perceived squeaky clean sports idols. RadarOnline.com reported exclusively Thursday that another of Tiger's women, Jaimee Grubbs worked at a medical marijuana "pharmacy" at least until a month ago.
Now we've learned that Uchitel told friends that she and Tiger liked to have sex while taking the drug Ambien. Uchitel told one pal, 'You know you have crazier sex on Ambien - you get into that Ambien haze. We have crazy Ambien sex.'" Ambien is a sedative used for short-term treatment of insomnia. Many people claim it enhances sexual experience dramatically immediately after ingesting it.
Uchitel told several friends that she and Tiger had Ambien sex. She at first vehemently denied an affair with Tiger when the National Enquirer broke the story. After Tiger's wild ride early-morning crash, Uchitel continued to deny the story and then decided to tell the truth.
She hired power attorney Gloria Allred who scheduled a news conference for Thursday, but then abruptly canceled it. RadarOnline.com reported exclusively that Tiger's reps were in contact with Uchitel's team the night before the news conference and a $1 million deal that would ensure her silence was discussed.]
Here's the infamous fart video again. I felt bad when I put it up the first time around - now I think he deserves this, and more.
Halperin also alleges that before meeting Pitt, the Tomb Raider star had set her sights on two other married men: "She said she wanted to go after either Bill Clinton or Johnny Depp." It has previously been claimed that Jolie made up a bunch of false rumors about Aniston not wanting to have children -- so she didn't look like a "bitch" for stealing the former Friends star's husband.]
Oh man, how much money would you pay to see Angelina try to steal Bill Clinton from Hillary? Good old H.C. wouldn't slink off into the sunset, that's for sure. As for Johnny Depp's lovely wife, Vanessa - I hope you've enjoyed your time with Mr. Depp. Sounds like it's almost up. Apparently no one can resist Angelina pussy. I'm surprised Bill was able to abstain. Hillary must have had him on a diet that week.
Whoops! But did Marie cut it off there? For a few months, she says, until they ran into each other again and he told her he was separating from his wife. "I just wanted to believe what he was saying," she said. "I was just kind of like, 'Don't ask, don't tell.'"
That is, until she saw the video of Eddie having a romantic dinner date with LeAnn! "I'm like, 'Seriously?'," she said. "Like I was just with you two weeks ago, and I mean you can't deny pictures, you can't deny a video." But Scheana didn't have any grand illusions that Eddie would be faithful to her as his one and only mistress. "I mean, he cheated with me - he would cheat on me," she said.]
Well, Scheana congratulations. You sound absolutely brilliant. If you're looking for a new conquest, I'm guessing Tiger Woods will be free soon... Enjoy the video above, for old time's sake!
A witness reveals: "Lamar caused a huge scene. He got jealous because Khloe was texting at the table and he yelled at her to quit it. She refused, so he stormed off and sat alone at the bar. Khloe just ignored him... He went and sat at the bar and watched TV by himself." Khloe was with her best friend [Malika Hagg] and the poor girl was totally stuck in the middle. The source reveals that there was no "kiss and make up" moment for the young couple.
And after some failed attempts to reconcile them by Khloe's BF, Lamar left in a huff without ever speaking to Khloe. Adds the source, "Everyone thought Lamar had left but then he pulled around front in his SUV and the girls went out and jumped in.]
Well, at least he remembered to pick up his wife before leaving the set situation! It's baby steps to introducing progeny for profit and $2 hookers to relieve the stress. That's season six of Keeping Up With The Kardashians!
Is $40 million the going rate for self-esteem? Is the marital finagling really worth it at this point? Everyone now knows that their marriage is a scam. I'm assuming Tiger believes Elin may potentially earn a bigger buyout if they were to divorce - or that a sullied split may harm his lucrative endorsement deals. Woods should get together with Lindsay Lohan - that would be the ultimate merger! I think they were recently spotted together at a club, engaged in a raw tongue wrestling match. Oh wait, that was Cash Warren - and we've since learned that incident didn't even take place. Lohan, I can't keep up with you! As for Elin - one man's trash is another man's treasure. She'd have a line out the door of men vying for her attention!
I love Lainey Gossip - that girl has got the goods. Today I stumbled across a post of hers regarding George Clooney and his lovely girlfriend, Elisbetta Canalis. Is their relationship one of convenience as awards (read: Oscar) season approaches? Clooney's latest flick, Up In The Air, is said to have "multiple nominations" written all over it. Could Canalis help wrap that up for her generous beau? Details, via Lainey Gossip:
[Yesterday Elisabetta Canalis went shopping in Hollywood with a friend, enjoying her stay in Los Angeles on George Clooney's dime. He needs her more than ever now. And she has worked for him so far. Clooney was named today by the National Board of Review as this year's Best Actor putting him back in the lead temporarily in the Oscar race. But we have 4 months to go. Never want to peak too early. This is why he's been largely low key these days, making sure to avoid oversaturation, and at the same time, subtly suggesting to the MiniVan that he may have found The One. You laugh, me too. But deep down every MiniVan Majority member wants to believe that George Clooney is capable of a conventional life. Heh. So what will we hear about Ely in the coming months? Oh it will be all white and washed for sure. She'll be careful about what she wears, she'll make sure it's sexy but not tarty, she's going to "refined" now and burying those old skin shots. People Magazine will print some sh-t about what she cooks for dinner or how her poetry won his heart. People Magazine will probably not post the videos below. Ely's beginning in Italian entertainment that will likely be ignored by the mainstream. SO amazingly cheesy as a variety show dancer.]
Well, we've got to enjoy that video before it gets buried - I'm sure you're all aware of my fondness for cheese! I would never want to navigate the choppy waters of Hollywood - all that scheming makes my head spin. The endless machinations seem like such a game - albeit a well thought out dalliance of real-life chess. Not a concern for George Clooney - looks like he's a pro!
Film producer Warren, 30, was partying without Jessica Alba, his wife of one and half years and mom to his daughter Honor, 18 months. "When he goes out with friends, he gets into trouble," a pal says of Alba's husband. Indeed. Soon after discovering one another at Villa, Warren and Lohan "ignored friends and just chatted." The real trouble began half an hour in. "Lindsay and Cash started making out," an onlooker tells Us. "Lip on tongue," the eyewitness continues, "It was raw. They were not shy!" Another Villa patron that night gasped, "It was a shock to see the two of them kiss, but it was real."
For her part, Lohan tells Us that the account is "absurd. He is married. I wouldn't dare kiss him." But pals of both Lohan and Warren -- who share a love of nightlife -- insist otherwise. Those close to Warren and Alba worry that their marriage is already on shaky footing. "Jessica is not as into Cash as she used to be," one source says. And the ever-fragile Lohan "becomes easily attached to everyone she meets and gets close to," one friend says. Adds another: "she's falling for [Cash]."]
"Barely any celebrities?" Shouldn't that read barely any people? For Cash (or Lindsay, at this point) to be considered a celebrity is really stretching it. How about two horn-dogs who wanted to get their rocks off gravitating towards each other? Now that I would buy! Jessica Alba's husband has never struck me as the greatest guy - and the theory that she "accidently" got pregnant to force his hand in marriage doesn't seem out of the realm. I don't think he's all that into her, so a dirty hookup at a club with a well-known party gal doesn't surprise me.

[UPDATE: Thanks to a helpful reader for the X17 link, alerting us to the debunked theory that Lindsay and Cash hooked up. Everyone loves to give Lindsay a hard - this time it just happens not to be Mr. Warren!]
She partied at 1Oak with her band-mates. As Nirvana tracks played on the sound system, Love started making out with Qualls in front of astonished onlookers. In true Courtney style, she then dragged Qualls -- a close pal of "Twilight" actress Nikki Reed -- off to Scores until the early hours of Thanksgiving morning.
A source said, "Courtney was partying at 1Oak with her band and Qualls, who was on the next table, introduced himself. They hit it off and ended up talking very closely and making out. She was all over him. Courtney then dragged him and her band to Scores." A source at the famous jiggle joint said Courtney, Qualls and her bandmates stayed until closing, stumbling out at 4 a.m.]
I love the "Nirvana tracks played on the sound system" detail - as if Love even remembers who Kurt Cobain is at this point. She's probably like, "I love this music. What is it?" As for Qualls, let's not forget DJ's excellent work in "Hustle & Flow." It's hard out there for a pimp - and no one busts balls harder on the pimp action than Courtney Love. Treat him nice Court, you only get one shot at the poor woman's version of Edward Norton!
Anyhoodle, later versions of this story are still spinning. Actually, I don't know if these stories are from the same night, or if Mayer and Lohan hung out several nights in a row or what. But now sources are claiming that Mayer has reunited Samantha Ronson and Lohan. Because that's what douches do. They reunite mentally unstable drug addicts with their enablers, and expect to be called a "good guy".]
More details of the evening, courtesy of Celebitchy and via Gatecrasher:
[Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson may be getting back together - with the help of an unlikely friend. John Mayer was spotted playing relationship counselor to the exes when they ran into each other at NYC hot spot Butter on Monday night. And Mayer may have worked a miracle.
"Lindsay and Sam didn't arrive together," says a partygoer. "Lindsay walked in, and the two said a quick hello, but then Linds went to the table where John was sitting." According to the source, Sam eventually came over to the table but sat far away on the opposite side - much to LiLo's dismay.
"Lindsay looked upset that Sam hadn't come over to her, and she started whispering to John, who looked like he was trying to calm her down," says the snitch. "She looked pretty angry. Then John got up and went to talk to Sam."
We're not sure what he crooned to the famed deejay, but it must have been pretty convincing: Ronson got up with Mayer and went over to La Lohan just a few minutes later. The source notes that after Mayer's intervention, the tumultuous twosome spent much of the night talking and laughing. La Lohan even ended the evening looking content - and (dare we say it?) stable.
"Lindsay seemed happier than she has in ages," the spy says. "Sam eventually got up and deejayed for a while, and Lindsay kept standing up and looking over to the deejay booth, smiling." In between watching Ronson, Lohan hung out with the likes of movie critic Ben Lyons and singer/songwriter Blake Ian.
Mayer, having done his good deed for the week, ducked out before Linds and Sam did - but not without a hug from LiLo and a more-than-friendly goodbye from a scantily clad blond. "Lindsay and Sam both stayed past 3," the partygoer says. "They didn't leave together, but they definitely ended the night on good terms."]
But wait! Does the alleged Mayer-inspired reunion with Sam mean there's no credence to the breaking story that Lindsay was seen kissing Jessica Alba's husband, Cash Warren? Oh, what a tangled web she's weaved - and not just that mess she calls hair! Stay tuned for all things Lohan...

I first met Mila Kunis nearly 10 years ago on the set of the generic teen comedy. We were fake high school classmates in a fake high school. She and co-star Kirsten Dunst were inseparable and I was an invisible extra. There were husky crew members on hand to remind us of the prevailing social order: extras were not to fraternize with movie stars. It was just like high school, actually. When Dunst once caught me gawking, she pantomimed one of those rickety movie cameras you crank during a game of charades and, in a voice reserved for children, said mockingly, "We're making a movie!" Kunis, still just the cute one from That '70s Show, stood next to her more established co-star and giggled.
With the words "Get Over It" barely out of my mouth, she covers hers and lets out a lengthy squeal: "I haven't seen that movie in years!" And indeed, that Mila Kunis, an embryonic TV star whose career was still in question, was an entirely different person than the one sitting in front of me, the one set to co-star in Denzel Washington's next film, The Book of Eli...
Then came Forgetting Sarah Marshall, the movie that upended everything we thought we knew about Kunis' talent. Yet another offering from the Judd Apatow Institute of Comedic Learning, this one about a heartbroken sap's romantic recovery, Sarah Marshall co-starred a laundry list of likeable comedians, including Jason Segel, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Jack McBrayer and Russell Brand. And yet, in scene after scene, it's Kunis, as the hotel clerk Rachel, who steals the show. Grounded, funny, appealing and gorgeous, she was a revelation. Who knew she had it in her? When the final credits rolled, audiences found themselves entertaining a thought they would have laughed away two hours earlier: Mila Kunis is going to be a movie star.]
Click here to read the interview in it's entirety. Mila has been linked to fellow former child star Macaulay Culkin for years. Needless to say, the Home Alone star knows the Hollywood ropes. I'm sure he'll be a supportive partner as Kunis continues her ascendency. I know I'll be rooting for them... Click here to view more pictures of the beautiful Mila.

When Milo tried to smooth things over with Hayden, "she acted like she didn't know what he was talking about," the source said. "Hayden told Milo 'Will you please get over yourself! Your ego is getting in the way of my acting!'"]
"Your ego is getting in the way of my acting!" Well, that line just earned a place in my heart. I'll think of it whenever I need a good laugh. Funny, I thought Hayden would own a mirror - it sounds like she needs to say that sentence again while looking in one...
[Photo Credit: Happier days for Hayden and Milo. You know, before he dumped her. To be fair, Milo does share some responsibility here. He's old enough to have heard the phrase, "Don't shit where you eat."]
Arriving just after midnight on Thursday, Jude and Sienna -- who are starring in Hamlet and After Miss Julie, respectively -- took a table, where they ordered pizza -- and a $350 bottle of wine. "They were offered a private table in the back, but Jude and Sienna turned it down," an insider tells Star. "They had no problem flaunting their love right in the middle of the restaurant. They definitely looked like they were head-over-heels for each other."
Although their reps denied recent reports that they'd reconciled, the couple -- who broke off their engagement in 2006 following his cheating scandal with his kids' nanny -- didn't skimp on public displays of affection. "They came in holding hands and kept touching each other and kissing throughout the entire meal," says the insider. "They only had eyes for each other!" Jude picked up the check -- leaving $100 tip -- and they left together in the same car.]
Turkey may not have been on the menu - but the wishbone certainly was! Deny it all you want, but these two are definitely back on. I hope Sienna stocked up on costumes - perhaps she can trick him into thinking he's with a different lady every night. She is an actress!
The show is being written by 30 Rock's Daisy Gardner -- anything 30 Rock-related shows promise -- and features a plot that, in the words of Nicole, "revolves around a young, modern and professional woman who must balance her business and family relationships. She must deal with, and navigate the many ideas of what a woman's role is: modern vs. traditional."]
Yeah, I forgot to mention that it's not your run-of-the-mill reality show or a program on the CW. It's on freakin' ABC with 30 Rock cred. Holy hell. The lesson here is clear - get away from Paris Hilton and good things will come.

When Jacob first shows off his tattoo, it is up at the top of his shoulder. Then when he is in the forest at the end with Bella and Edward, his tattoo is about 2 inches further down his arm.
When Bella is flying to Italy they show a Virgin America airplane. Virgin America only flies within certain cities in the US. Virgin Atlantic flies from the US to Europe.
Just as Jacob enters Bella's room through the window, a stunt prop - white band on his right wrist - is briefly visible.
In the montage scenes where we see Bella's depression, when the camera is circling her, the camera man is shown in the mirror (twice) behind her.
The rims of the vampires contacts can be spotted occasionally during the film, especially the Volturi's during the ending scenes -- e.g., Jane's in the elevator.
In the main title when the giant new moon appears on the screen the shadow fades over the moon from right to left when it should actually fade from left to right. The moon travels around the earth clockwise. The waning moon should turn to a new moon, not the waxing which is shown.
Continuity: Right before Jacob comes through Bella's window, it shows her sleeping and "dreaming" of Victoria coming to get her. If you look, the camera really focuses on the dreamcatcher and how it's hanging above her on the bedpost. It is hanging off to the side of the middle hump. Immediately, Jacob comes through her window and focuses in on the dreamcatcher hanging on the bedpost which is now neatly hanging in a completely different way, perfectly laid over the center of the bedpost.
Continuity: After Bella awakes from the first nightmare, we see her Romeo and Juliet book on the pillow beside her. When Charlie brings in her presents the book is gone, but then reappears on the pillow between shots.
Continuity: When Alice jumps over the staircase in school to wish Bella happy birthday, between shots during the scene the positioning of the decorated scarf around her neck varies.
Visible crew/equipment: In the very last scene, right before the ultimatum, if you look into the tail lights on Edward's car you can see various members of the crew reflected.
Continuity: When Mike and Jacob are standing outside the cinema waiting for Bella, between shots the Burger King takeaway bag sitting on the trashcan next to them changes position]
Does any remember that the cast and crew had mere months between movie shoots? The studio is pumping this out for profit you, the least you could do is give them a break!
There is one especially interesting tidbit that might lend credence to the author's theory of trouble in paradise. Halperin said: "I learned she recently filed an adoption request for a seventh child, and incredibly on the form it's only Angelina Jolie's name. Not Brad Pitt's. If they are going to stay together, why isn't his name on the form. Apparently the papers were filed in Syria."
Halperin has interviewed 900 people and is puzzled by the fact that there hasn't been anything written about the couple in book form. He said, "There's been so many stories about them, so many rumors and innuendo, and I really feel I was able to get the story behind the story and break it down properly."]
Click here to read the PopEater interview with Mr. Halprin - it's excellent. I don't know what more could be said about "Brangelina" - but I know I'll still be drinking up every word. Christmas is conveniently just around the corner - which means my countdown to feigning surprise after finding this book under the tree starts... now!
