As many people have said, it HAS been a slow news weekend. So I took a page out of artemis_archer's book and instead of movie trivia, I compiled TV show trivia. [Because we need SOMETHING to entertain us while we wait for a real story to come along.] Enjoy!

EDIT: I added some Boy Meets World and Home Improvement stuff since ONTD is obsessed with 90s shows and the hunky teen guys from that decade. ;D

Avril's Britney Rant

We've heard oodles of people offering their support to Britney Spears over the last month.

But Avril Lavigne has some less than sympathetic words for her.

Avril told The Sun: "What's happened to Britney is all down to who she is as a person.

"If you want a piece of this business you have to be able to deal with it.

"You can't complain about pressures, the paparazzi, the madness because that's the job."

Avril said that she likes to have a drink and party too, but that she can handle it and "no one really gets to know".


Tbh, I can't stand either of these girls, but I wonder if Avril feels the need to talk down about Britney as the only way of her getting any press. How pathetic.

Silverchair perform last night on Rove + a long article

THE SLIM FIGURE of Daniel Johns, in baggy combat pants and grey T-shirt, is standing outside a harbourside hotel having a quick smoke before we sit down. He'll be back out there for another fag almost immediately after we've talked, too. But the vegetarian with the gym-wiry body doesn't act like a furtive smoker; there are none of those urgent, quick drags and cupped hands around the cigarette. No, the singer and songwriter of Newcastle's most famous band, Silverchair, friend of Newcastle's most famous footballer, Andrew Johns, husband of pop star Natalie Imbruglia, is enjoying it. Savouring it. The way the 27-year-old is savouring his life these days: deeply and openly.

Gone is the tortured teenager who slipped into anorexia as that peculiar madness that is fame surrounded him in the mid-1990s. Gone is the hollow-eyed young man whose depressive bouts were countered by a pharmaceutical convention's worth of prescription drugs. Gone, too, is the musician who throughout 2002 feared that the severe effects of reactive arthritis would end his career.

PS Daniel please have babies with Natalie now, thanks.

Newsflash: Carrie Underwood is a cold-hearted, horrible beotch! ;)

My friend works as a DJ at a country radio station. She recently told me the following story about her encounter with Carrie Underwood. Names and identifying details have been removed to protect the innocent, but it has not been edited otherwise! That means no bitching about spelling, punctuation, etc.. ;) My friend is one of the nicest people I've ever known. So I feel bad that she had such a letdown. :(

Fergie Loves Her "Lady Humps" - Admits Previous "Lesbian Experiences"

Fergie has confessed to having a series of lesbian relationships. The Black Eyed Peas singer has revealed she rebelled against her parents and her strict Catholic upbringing when she was 18 experimenting with drugs and sex. She said: "I have had lesbian experiences in the past. But I started having sex quite late on - after I was 18. I was raised a good Catholic girl. I won't say how many men I have slept with, although it's not many, but I am a very sexual person."

Fergie - who plays a lesbian in Quentin Tarantino's new horror film 'Grindhouse' - eventually got hooked on crystal meth, a powerful amphetamine which can cause users to stay awake for three days and experience powerful hallucinations. The "Glamorous" singer admits she was lucky to come out of her drugs hell alive.

Fergie - real name Stacy Ferguson - said: "When I was going through my out-of-control phase, I could have got into some very dangerous situations. But I never sold my body - ever. I even had a gun put to my head during a Los Angeles drug deal that went wrong. Luckily, I got out of it." Before embarking on her musical career, Fergie was a child star appearing in the classic US sitcoms 'Mr Belvedere' and "Married With Children". Source

$tern Shut Down Over DNA

Howard K. Stern lost a big one in the Bahamas today.

Stern's appeal on DNA testing was just rejected, and Howard K. was penalized by the three-judge panel to the tune of $10,000. TMZ has learned Stern was ordered to pay $5,000 in attorney's fees to the Registrar General and $5,000 to Birkhead's lawyer -- not Debra Opri, the Bahamian one.

This could clear the way for the unsealing of the DNA test results -- that should happen in court this week.

Typically, these penalties (called "sanctions") are imposed when an appeal is frivolous.

A f**n outrage

I don't know if you guys heard this before but they are remaking one of the greatest movies of all time (you know you loved it!), 


Adventures in Babysitting

Recent update as of today:

Disney has tapped Tiffany Paulson (Nancy Drew, Fast Girls) to write the remake of 1987's Adventures in Babysitting. The movie will star Miley Cyrus and Raven Simone with Lynda Obst producing. The original starred Elisabeth Shue as a suburban high school senior whose dull night of babysitting turned into an unexpectedly adventurous evening following a call for help from a friend.

There are no words. By the way, how are they planning on remaking the blues club scene? I mean I ask for obvious reasons. This is just..I am just so depressed

First Rachel McAdams told Elle that her boyfriend influenced her film choices – and now Ryan Gosling has returned the compliment.

"She's kind. She doesn't need any help from me. She's inspired me to do so much as well," Gosling, 26, said Sunday when asked about McAdams's comments at a junket for his new thriller Fracture.

McAdams, 30, told the magazine's April issue that her beau – and costar in 2004's The Notebook – "never does the same thing twice. He's very brave."

But Gosling, a Best Actor Oscar nominee for Half Nelson, says McAdams has good judgment in her own right: "She's the most discerning person I've ever met. She'll read a script 100 times. She's relentless."

And she's not bad looking, either: Asked to comment on McAdams's cover shot for the magazine, Gosling was momentarily tongue-tied.

"Oh ... yeah ..." he said. "She looks stunning! Absolutely – yeah!"

Lindsay to host a club opening...

Apparently the not-exactly-bumpin' Fashion 40 Lounge hasn't taught people not to open up fashion-themed clubs. On April 12, promoters Greg Barrias and Rich Messina will open Runway at 4 East 28th Street, near Fifth Avenue, which only coincidentally shares its name with the magazine in The Devil Wears Prada. We're skeptical of the Wheresville location and the 25-foot catwalk in the center of the club (after the first couple of times someone reenacts the Zoolander walk-off, it's not going to be funny anymore, no matter how many $10 Chinatown Cosmos are going around), but we at least give Barrias and Messina credit for having Lindsay Lohan host the opening. It's going to be good press when she mows down another photographer outside of the place.


wow, it's been a super slow day :-\

Love Is Blind... We Are Not
WHICH closeted actor was once the paramour of a lovely, dapper designer? The bright-eyed thespian once complained to a morose starlet that he couldn't get good roles because he was too beautiful. Happily, he's now had a string of hits that prove his talent lies beyond his ability to model Italian suits - though he still insists on causing a scene with women in public to ward off rumors. Meanwhile, the designer is now content with a non-famous boyfriend.

NOTE to Jonathan Rhys Meyers: Next time, get a hotel room! The Irish-born hunk, who stars as Henry VIII in the new Showtime series "The Tudors," sashayed into The Plumm with his pony-tailed brunette love Reena Hammer under his arm the other night. They immediately retired to a couch and launched into a frenzied make-out session as a crowd of revelers became voyeurs. "It was really a scene. She straddled him, and they were at it for some time," our spy said. When the steamed-up duo finally called it quits, they left without even bothering to have a drink.

Usher's fiancee pregnant with another man's child?

Word is breaking that Usher's fiancee Tameka is four months pregnant and the father of the child is her ex-husband Ryan Glover, not Usher. Sources say Tameka was pregnant before she and Usher reconciled their relationship. "Usher is indeed playing himself because he is about to come out pretty soon about the baby and will claim it as his own. And of course Tameka will let him because he's her meal ticket and her way into the fashion game she's so desperately trying to enter." Hmmm..... sounds like another confession.

Breslin's an 'American Girl'
'Little Miss Sunshine' star will also appear with Jodie Foster in 'Nim's Island'

Abigail Breslin may not have won the title of Little Miss Sunshine, but she's about to be crowned an "American Girl."

According to Variety, the recent Oscar nominee has booked a pair of high profile leading roles, opposite Jodie Foster in the Walden Media-produced "Nim's Island" and in the doll-based feature "American Girl."

In "American Girl," set to begin production on June 4, Breslin would play Kit Kittredge, a popular doll with a Depression Era backstory. Ann Peacock ("The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe") wrote the film, set up at Picturehouse and HBO Films.

"Nim's Island" also goes into production this summer at some point for 20th Century Fox. Based on the book by Wendy Orr, it's the story of Nim, who lives on a remote South Pacific island with her scientist dad. When her father gets isolated, Nim's only connection to the outside world is her e-mail correspondence with a reclusive author.

Breslin, who turns 11 later this month, received Oscar and SAG nominations this year for her work in "Little Miss Sunshine." She's also appeared on episodes of "Ghost Whisperer" and "Grey's Anatomy" and in features including "Raising Helen" and "Keane."


A picture of Kit's artwork to compare:

So a hair dying and cut are in order for the most part. I don't really care much, except for the fact that my friend from middle school loved this doll and book line.



Apparently, several of you are older fans of the series. The wiki has all you need to know about the newer girls Maddie, Josefina, Kit and Kaya (link; when my friend read it, they already had introduced Maddie Addy and Josefina. in another random note. Her mom also thought those dolls were too damn expensive, so she made her own instead by sewing and stuffing them herself)

also Samantha, Felicity and Molly already have movies, so this bitch is definitely jumping the line.

Exclusive! Aniston Gets Some Gay Lovin'

Jennifer Aniston is one busy gal.

I can exclusively report that Aniston has been tapped to receive the Vanguard Award at this year's Los Angeles GLAAD Media Awards on Apr. 14.

The award honors a member of the entertainment world who has been significant in promoting gay rights. Past recipients include Cher, Eric McCormack, Antonio Banderas, Liza Minnelli and Charlize Theron.

"She never expected this," Aniston's rep told me. "But she's very honored and very happy about it."

Aniston is also close to putting the finishing touches on a couple of upcoming film projects. While her rep was tight-lipped on details, he told me that she will go behind the camera for one. He said Aniston is likely to announce her plans to direct her first feature film.

But she's acting, too. Aniston will most likely start shooting a new movie—in which she'll costar—this summer, her rep said.

lol blind item. get it?

1. When you make the transition from teen idol to out of work actor, the women who used to be everywhere are now just a nighttime memory. So, you always try and find the lamest parties with the hottest women and hope someone will remember you. They remember you when you remind them what show you used to be on and then you tell them you are working on several projects. The problem is that when it comes to leave, they think of you still as a kid. No problem. You made lots of money on the show and so offer to take one of the women "shopping" after the party and buy her something nice. She accepts. Now where are the paps when you need them? This way the world will see you've become a man. The last idea didn't work too well did it?

2. Note to actors--It's tax season. Your accountants are going to go through all your records. Sometimes they get busy and have members of their staff do the work. They are not highly paid and will sell your information. If they are really pissed they will just tell the world what you did. This B list actor on a hit television show always plays a good guy and is very popular. What would his fans think if they discovered that he gave $10,000 to a white power organization last year?

lotr star married THREE times!

source: http://elijah.netg.se/

DailyNews24 had a tiny, small report in a recent article of theirs, and Elijah was mentioned. The short article reports that Elijah is getting married on the 26th April, around the same time his new film Day Zero will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Here is what they have to say about it.
Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood, a well known actor in Hollywood, has reportedly lately been seen with a dark haired woman, not much older than himself. Elijah has previously dated 7-year-older german actress Franka Potente and has been rumoured dating actress Bijou Phillips. In a recent interview with DailyNews24, Elijah revealed some information about his past, including his lovelife.
- I was drunk, I didn't know what I was doing. It just happened. She was 17 and I was far too young. One night in Vegas and it just happened. We got a divorce one day later, when we both realized what we'd done. I never told anyone before. We decided it was best to keep it a secret. What always makes me laugh and not cry at the thought is that Billy asked me if she had a sister, she was a real bomb you see. The freakish thing was that she actually had an identical twin. Both Billy and Orlando got crazy 'n wild that night.
... Elijah comments on his accidentally marriage with an young american girl he'd met in New Zealand while filming Lord of the Rings. But this time it's for real.

- Oh I already bought the ring and all. We got married last month, in Venice ... I've always loved Italy. I had a break off "Oxford Murders" and thought "Oh what the heck. I'm already 26". So we took a flight and just did it.
The wedding was kept short due to the filming of Oxford Murders. Guests who attended included Liv Tyler, Marianne Jason, Dominic Monaghan, Karen Wood and Mandy Moore. Ozzy Osbourne sang a duet with his daughter Kelly to honour the newly weds.

- I've only been married two times before. The second time it held for about 4 months. It was just a teenage crush I had. Her name was Anne. Amazingly, the press never found out! We were very discreete. Eventually, Anne, ohh by the way, who was a chef, decided she wanted to quit her job and move to Rwanda to work with the mosquitoelarvas breathing process. She was very intrugued by them and we decided to part as friends. I didn't wan't to go. I mean I loved her but who is going to hire an actor in Rwanda!

Bjork Reveals Volta Artwork, Tracklist

Björk's album covers have always been visual feasts, reflecting the spirit of the music inside while helping to maintain Björk's status as a brilliant artist. A new addition to the collection is always exciting, but the unveiling of the artwork for Volta (due out May 7 in the UK and May 8 in the U.S. on One Little Indian/Atlantic) is extra special, as Pitchfork was able to discuss the image with Björk herself.

As you can see, the photo's bright colors contrast sharply with the muted tones of the covers of her last two albums, Medulla and Vespertine. This mirrors the sound of Volta, which was inspired by the universal urge to dance.

"All I wanted to do for this album was just to have fun and do something that was full-bodied and really up," Björk told Stosuy in the first part of their chat. The album cover is meant to evoke pagan femininity and, to some degree, feminism, which is a running theme throughout the music of Volta. "It's not necessarily about me as a woman, but just women," Björk told Stosuy. "Kind of that long leap of 10,000 years back, when they [were] in harmony with nature, and just little things like the fact that there are 13 full moons in a year and most women have certain things happening to them 13 times a year, but Christianity wanted to have 12 months, just to try to put that off."

Conflict with conventional organized religion is another undercurrent of Volta. "It's about being exhausted with the self-importance of religion, and thinking, 'okay, wait a minute, maybe we are one tribe, and we're actually part of nature,'.

"I was reading a lot of books the last couple of years, especially about things that interest me a lot, like neuroscience, about the two hemispheres and about how we actually are animal species, and, like, female medicine from nature, and how Christianity forced us to ignore nature and the body. There's a lot of interesting books being written by my generation of scientists that they're kind of looking at things slightly differently from how I was taught about it, at least when I was 12.

"It's sort of trying to put out some good vibes for the little princesses out there. There are actually other things than losing a glass slipper. I mean, part of it was having a little daughter and realizing, what are we telling girls? All these books out there about finding your prince. All these little girls, all they want to do is be pretty and find their prince, and I'm like, what happened to feminism here?"
