How She Did: 2nd place
Diana DeGarmo has kept busy recording an album and starring in the Broadway musical Hairspray. Her latest big accomplishment? Dropping three dress sizes to a size 4! "The first time I put on size 26 waist jeans, I was jumping around the store," says DeGarmo, 19, who's lost the weight by changing her diet (staples include fish and brown rice) and working out four times a week.

Undressed is back?



Everybody's favorite porn series for pre-pubescents is making an unusual reappearance on the small screen this week.  According to TV Guide listings, Tuesday morning, at 12:00AM EST, MTV will be airing a 5 hour marathon of "Undressed" after axing the sex-centered drama in 2002.  An update to the MTV website on April 7 seems to confirm these showings.

"Undressed" featured many of young Hollywood's biggest stars before they hit it big, as well as many other faces that might seem familiar.  Some of these include Adam Brody (The O.C.), Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill), Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Autumn Reeser (The O.C.), Sean Faris (Life as We Know It), Sarah Lancaster (What About Brian), Jason Ritter (The Class), Jay Hernandez (Six Degrees), and Geoff Stults (October Road).  Unclear is whether or not these will be new episodes or re-runs of some of the episodes from the previous six seasons.

Random Fact: Since "Undressed" and "2Gether" (RIP Q.T. McKnight), MTV has not aired a scripted series.

Who else is excited besides me?  My first post, BTW. :D

News on some hot Aussie blokes

Bon Scott, Alex O'Loughlin / Daily Telegraph

HE'S on the well-trodden path to Hollywood stardom, but it seems Aussie actor Alex O'Loughlin may also be well versed in the Highway to Hell.

The Oyster Farmer star -- who recently joined the cast of US cop drama The Shield - has revealed he's the son of late AC/DC frontman Ronald "Bon" Scott, according to the World Entertainment News Network.

And while Confidential yesterday contacted both the Sydney and LA-based agents of 29-year-old O'Loughlin, neither was able to confirm the bizarre claim, which first appeared in the Chicago Tribune last week.

O'Loughlin - currently dating fellow Aussie hottie Holly Valance - was also out of reach, in Canada to film thriller Whiteout alongside Kate Beckinsale.

The NIDA-trained actor, who was tested for the role of James Bond in the latest instalment, Casino Royale, before it went to Daniel Craig, was born in 1977 at the height of Scott's fame as AC/DC's hard man of rock 'n' roll - three years before the rocker died in London in February 1980.

BIG-wave surfer Koby Abberton and his brothers Sunny and Jai may have just scored the ride of their lives after claiming to have signed off on the rights to the Hollywood adaptation of the Bra Boys film.

Koby yesterday emailed Confidential from LA, where he was celebrating the mega-deal after meeting Imagine Entertainment bosses Jim Whitaker and Brian Grazer.

With help from Russell Crowe, Universal Pictures and Imagine - the team behind A Beautiful Mind and Cinderella Man - have bought the rights to the surf-and-turf story for an undisclosed sum.

According to Koby the film will be called MBK, which is the acronym for My Brother's Keeper and also the name of Koby's successful online clothing label www.mbksoldiers.com

Filming is due to start in December - but actors are yet to be cast.

Nicole pregnancy denied

For the person who commented in this post that she wouldn't believe it until she heard it from their agents...

Nicole Kidman will spend the next seven months in the saddle as rehearsals for her new movie, Australia, begin on Tuesday.

Kidman, who returned to Sydney this morning, celebrated Easter Sunday with her family and husband, country singer Keith Urban.

Her Australian publicist, Wendy Day, spoke out today against a report in the London-based tabloid newspaper News of the World that Kidman was pregnant, saying it was "100 per cent not true".

She said Kidman was excited about being home and making Baz Luhrmann's new epic.

"She is about to get on a horse in the outback and breaking brumbies. I hardly think she will be able to do that if she is pregnant," Ms Day said.

"She's going to be working with all her old mates.

"She is really looking forward to going into the outback and getting on a horse and making a great adventure in Australia.

"She has seen very little of the Australian outback and the bush and she really is excited about that.''

Ms Day said that Kidman was "in a good place".

"She loves Baz; it's a big buzz."

Urban is in Australia for a concert tour.

According to the report, Kidman was seen outside the St John's Health Clinic in Santa Monica, California, the same place that former Spice Girl, Mel B, gave birth last week.

Super Skinny Girls Are Not Healthy Or Attractive, Says Alicia Keys



R&B star Alicia Keys hates the idea of woman starving themselves to achieve the controversial size zero figure - insisting "it's not attractive." The singer/actress is annoyed with the size zero culture and thinks women should appreciate what they have rather than hurt their bodies to achieve unrealistic weight goals.

The star says, "I think that's total trash. I think that a woman is so much her curves and her many styles. We come in all packages and we are who we are, and I definitely don't like it when young girls feel like they have to totally starve themselves. I think it's not attractive either, actually. Definitely not healthy." source

David Beckham Gets New Tattoo

David Beckham loves Wentworth Miller!!!

David Beckham proudly shows off his new forearm tattoo, honoring Wentworth Miller’s character on Prison Break, fugitive Michael Scofield.

In an interview with UK’s The Daily Mail back in April 2006, Wentworth Miller expressed how flattered he was that David Beckham is a fan of Prison Break and his body tattoo.

Apparently David Beckham is interested in copying your tattoo. Would you advise it? I’ve heard he’s getting my tattoo. Isn’t that wild? It never occurs to me that celebrities or sports people or actors are watching my show. I only think of my friends and family tuning in. I think his idea to join up his tattoos will work quite nicely, but I don’t envy him having it done. That’s a lot of work and a lot of pain for a tattoo that size.

Lindsay Lohan to open fashion bar



Apparently irony is not lost on Lindsay Lohan -- the girl who won't be legal to drink until July, who just got out of rehab after one too many drunken mishaps -- as she'll be hosting the opening a new NYC bar next week.

Runway, the bar that shares a name with the magazine in The Devil Wears Prada, is set to open on April 12th.

NY Magazine is non-plussed about the new fashioned-themed hangout (not surprisingly), which features a 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 they are excited that Lohan's hosting the event, even if it's just to see if she "mows down another photographer outside of the place."

Because let's be honest, Lindsay Lohan and the new bar only have one thing in common, and it isn't fashion.

Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds spent a busy weekend in New York City together.

On Saturday night, the pair were seen getting close at the Manhattan restaurant Odeon. "They were in a good mood," says one eyewitness who saw them laughing and smiling.

"They were definitely holding hands," says another observer. "They were a cute couple!"

Johansson, 22, who is a New York native, and Reynolds, 30, who ended his engagement to Alanis Morissette in February, also spent Easter together.

The pair, who were with a group of pals, arrived at the Carlyle hotel around 4 p.m. Sunday for the $135 prix fixe lunch.

The whole group "was having a blast," says one witness. "It looked like a group of friends. I don't even think they were celebrating Easter."

Reynolds's rep had no comment when reached by PEOPLE. Johansson's rep does not comment on his client's personal life.

Johansson recently told Seventeen she's single and not looking for love.

"When I'm single, I don't focus. I focus on a guy if he's a boyfriend, but I don't focus on finding a boyfriend," she said.

Although Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz broke up earlier this year after nearly four years together, the singer has nothing but kind words for his ex.

Asked about the split by British GQ, Timberlake, 26, says, "It's hard for me to talk about because we're talking about a person that I love and respect."

Timberlake, known for being mum about his personal life, makes it clear that he'd never speak badly about Diaz – and wouldn't tolerate anyone else doing it either.

"If I hear anyone say anything bad about Cameron then I'll have something to say to them," he tells the magazine in its May issue.

When it comes to the subject of his other ex, Britney Spears, Timberlake tells the magazine, "Honestly, I am so far removed from that situation."

Timberlake's best friend, Trace Ayala, seconds that, saying, "She just isn't part of his life."

As for the rumor that Timberlake sent a veiled message to Spears while accepting a Brit Award for best international male solo artist in February, the singer is mystified.

At the awards ceremony Timberlake told the crowd, "Stop drinking! You know who you are. I'm speaking to you. You are going to get sloppy," which some tabloids guessed was a reference to Spears, who entered rehab later that month.

Timberlake says he "didn't know anything" about the rumor and shakes his head in disbelief, asking, "A coded message to Britney?"

He clearly has other things to worry about: He's midway through his FutureSex/LoveShow tour, which wraps up in China in September, and stars in Black Snake Moan with Christina Ricci and Samuel L. Jackson, currently in theaters.

One Prime-Time Pissy Blind Vice -- WITH TRANSLATION

Trust, doll-pusses, just because Star Jones-Reynolds left network TV doesn't mean the once impeccably peopled, more polished outlets are without chest-stabbing, chutzpah-powered pricks who need to trim their nose hairs. I mean, these places have gotten downright pedestrian, cable-esque 'n' catty!

Take Teri-Fairy Terrible, for ince. T.F.T., of majorly questionable sexuality, has been around. In so many ways. And, at first, Teri-sweetie was, indeed, working for a cable outfit. That was before the only medium good-looking (at best) personality figured out how to sleep with powerful playahs to get ahead—despite having a long-suffering spouse at home. And isn't it interesting that as the higher Teri-Fairy's media star seemed to rise, so, too, did Terrible's really terrible state of affairs at home?

Hadley hints at Spandau reunion

Spandau Ballet could be set to make a comeback after singer Tony Hadley said he hoped to reunite with his former 1980s bandmates. The band, who had a string of hits with songs like True, had a bitter fall-out which ended in the High Court in 1999. Hadley, Steve Norman and John Keeble sued Gary Kemp for a £1m share of the songwriting royalties, but lost. Discussing his hopes on Virgin Radio, Hadley said things got "personal" and he was ready to bury the hatchet.

Jason from Laguna Beach arrested-- again

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

TMZ has learned that "Laguna Beach" bad boy Jason Wahler was arrested over the weekend -- for the fourth time in nine months!

Wahler was picked up by the Seattle Police Department just after 2:00 AM for criminal trespassing and assault. Police sources tell TMZ that Jason was booked into a King County jail early Sunday morning and was released on bail nine hours later.

On March 6, Wahler was sentenced to 60 days in an L.A. County Jail, and must turn himself in sometime before May 4 to begin serving time for roughing-up a tow truck driver. Later this month, he's due in court in North Carolina to answer to charges of resisting a public officer during an underage drinking sweep. He was also busted last August on cocaine possession and other charges in New York City. Busy boy!

Wahler's legal troubles now extend to four states including New York, California, North Carolina, and now Washington. Jason is the rumored star of a sex tape with "Laguna Beach" cutie Lauren Conrad, who has denied the existence of such a tape. Too bad, Jason's could use the money for his attorneys.

Jenna losing weight---and fans

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

PORN queen Jenna Jameson is so stressed out over her bitter divorce that for the first time in her long career, she's behaving unprofessionally and letting her fans down, sources said.

Jameson, who reportedly underwent a botched and career-threatening vaginoplasty operation, has lost so much weight that she's almost unrecognizable and was a disappointment to fans at last weekend's Exxxotica convention in Miami Beach.

According to one insider, "She was contractually supposed to show up for a total of six hours in two days yet arrived late both days and blew off the event 45 minutes early on the second day of her appearance."

The source continued, "When fans openly asked her about her [botched surgery] and why she was so thin, her people cut them off. But she shouldn't be standing in front of an old photo of herself when she's about 40 pounds skinnier than she was."

Jameson has said her dramatic weight loss is due to stress from her ongoing divorce from estranged husband Jay Grdina.

The buxom blonde also refused interviews with the media - including CNN's Anderson Cooper, The Miami Herald and adult supersite XBiz.com.

She left the event early with her martial-artist boyfriend, Tito Ortiz, when she saw that rival porn star Tera Patrick had a longer line of waiting fans than she did.

Meanwhile, add Spike TV and Ortiz's organization, the Ultimate Fighting Championship, to Jameson's list of detractors.

The UFC star backed out of a bout with UFC President Dana White two Saturdays ago after Jameson "berated him for not negotiating a lucrative deal for the fight." Ortiz had signed a contract to fight White for no extra compensation, another source added.

Ortiz's no-show left the Nevada State Athletic Commission, the UFC and Spike TV reps steaming mad. One fight fan suggested that Jameson was damaging his career and predicted that she'd be to Ortiz what Robin Givens was to Mike Tyson.

Jameson's lawyer told Page Six, "Jenna fulfilled every obligation as set forth from Jay Handy [the Exxxotica organizer], and he is pleased with her participation and invited her to come back."

Handy said, "Jenna fulfilled her contract, and Jenna had a classic Jenna fan line - the biggest line, [one] that wrapped around the Convention Hall."

Elizabeth is extremely hurt, but angry too, say close friends
Monday, April 09, 2007  21:25 IST

 
Liz Hurley and Arun Nayar
 
 

A day after reports surfaced of Vinod disowning his sons because they humiliated him during the Arun-Liz wedding celebrations and treated him like a “second-class citizen”, the Daily Mail has reported that Liz is outraged at the way he’s washing dirty linen in public - and the British actor is blaming mom-in-law Joanne for stoking the flames.

Sources told the tabloid that the rift developed after Vinod’s second wife tried to “upstage the bride” at the Indian ceremony in Jodhpur. A close friend is quoted as saying, “Elizabeth is extremely hurt, but angry too. She can’t believe he has gone public like this. Some of us think Joanne is to blame for this and encouraged Arun’s father to speak out.”

Interestingly, in an earlier interview to After Hours, Joanne had said that she had no problems with her new daughter-in-law. She had claimed the post wedding party, they were to host a party that was later cancelled because Liz and Arun were tired after the 10-day long wedding celebrations in the UK and Mumbai.

But now Vinod has revealed the real reason was something else. “I figured if they could treat us so shabbily, there was no guarantee they would actually come.”

The unpleasantness has even left Mumbai circles with a bitter after taste. Arti Surendranath, who was part of the celebrations, is appalled by the turn of events. “I genuinely don’t want to be involved. Vinod is my friends’ father and I don’t believe he could have said all those things. Poor Liz is unnecessarily being maligned. It is really unfortunate.”

So what’s the bottomline if Vinod actually disowns his sons? “There is a difference between disowning and disinheriting someone,” says Mahesh Jethmalani. “One may disown a son, but he can still stand to inherit through his father’s will. I don’t know what is meant by ‘disowning’ in this case. However, this is a private matter and best resolved within the family.”

However, a close friend of Niki who was at the wedding says, “I don’t think this is true at all! I saw the dynamics at the wedding and everything seemed okay. C’mon, Niki lives two floors below his father! In fact, just ten days ago someone warned me about this story - that I’d see it coming in the papers. It’s all just sensationalism. I don’t think they’d ever go on record to say something like this.”

The source adds that what should be looked into was why there were very few of Liz’s relatives at the wedding. “Isn’t that strange?”

Jennifer still can't get It right! Why am I not suprised by this

EXCLUSIVE: SHE TEAMS UP WITH HUBBY.. AND IT'S YET ANOTHER FLOP

YOU'D think J.Lo would have learnt her lesson - never work with your other half.

She famously teamed up with her ex-fiance Ben Affleck to make the movie Gigli, one of the biggest turkeys in Hollywood history.

So why on Earth did she let her husband Marc Anthony produce her latest album?

Recorded entirely in Spanish, Como Ama una Mujer (How A Woman Loves) was Jennifer Lopez's attempt to get back to her Hispanic roots.

But sadly, it's bombed - selling just 49,452 copies this week when it was released in the US.

And after her last English-language album, Get Right, was a disaster too, this makes her one of a select band of artists to flop embarrassingly in two separate languages.

It all started so promisingly, with J.Lo, 37, thanking Marc for giving her the confidence to record it. She said: "Emotionally speaking, this album is more to me than any other album.

"When someone believes in you so much, you don't want to let them down."

Sound like famous last words to us...

Marc, who starred alongside his stunning wife last year in another cinematic flop, El Cantante, must rue the day he agreed to work on an album that is turning into a PR disaster.

The biggest Latino music chain in America, Ritmo Latino, even banned it from stores last week. It says J.Lo has refused to appear in their shops because they sell only Hispanic music.

An insider told us: "It could be the nail in the coffin for J.Lo's bid to become an iconic crossover Latin singer.

"She is the people's sweetheart and it's as if she's snubbing them."

Ritmo president David Massry said: "We've supported her from the beginning. Now we're told from the record company she will only visit Anglo retail outlets.

"This is a Spanish CD, and if she wants to discriminate against the Latin community then we will not sell her product.

"Celebrities have the notion that when they reach a certain level of crossover appeal, they can quickly forget where they started. We will not tolerate this."

But a rep for J.Lo, Kevin Lawrie, the head of Sony's Latin division, Sony Norte, said: "We (the label) felt that it was important that Jennifer do her in-store appearances in The Bronx, where she is from and where there is substantial cultural diversity.

"Unfortunately, Ritmo Latino has no outlets in the Bronx."

Who knows what Jen will do next. But whatever it is, let's hope it's without hubby.

Don Imus' radio show was suspended by MSNBC for two weeks because of his "racist, abhorrent comments," a network official said Monday.

Imus apologized Monday on his program and on the Rev. Al Sharpton's radio show, saying his remark on last week's Imus in the Morning show was a joke that "went way too far."

He referred to players on Rutgers women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos."

Late Monday, NBC News President Steve Capus released this statement:

"Beginning Monday, April 16, MSNBC will suspend simulcasting the syndicated Imus in the Morning radio program for two weeks. This comes after careful consideration in the days since his racist, abhorrent comments were made. Don Imus has expressed profound regret and embarrassment and has made a commitment to listen to all of those who have raised legitimate expressions of outrage. In addition, his dedication – in his words – to change the discourse on his program moving forward, has confirmed for us that this action is appropriate. Our future relationship with Imus is contingent on his ability to live up to his word

Originating from WFAN in New York and syndicated by Westwood One, Imus's show reaches an estimated 2.5 million people a week, the Associated Press reports. The simulcast on MSNBC reached an estimated 361,000 viewers in the first three months of the year, AP reports.

Jared Padalecki to play Thomas Kinkade in The Christmas Cottage.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Jared Padalecki has been cast as Thomas Kinkade alongside Peter O'Toole in Lionsgate's "The Christmas Cottage," based on the life of Kinkade and his painting of the same name. Michael Campus will direct the film, which goes into production this month in Vancouver and Whistler.

Padalecki will play Kinkade, one of America's most collected living artists who used his gift as an artist to portray his life-affirming values and explore the world around him. O'Toole will play a painter named Glen Wessler, based on one of Kinkade's mentors. A holiday release is planned.

The film is part of an intended three-picture deal between Lionsgate and Kinkade. The next two films, also planned with Padalecki as Kinkade, will be based on other paintings and reflect different points in Kinkade's life.

"Cottage" also will be produced by the Firm and Kinkade's Birch label. Producers are the Firm's Julie Yorn, Michael and Arla Dietz Campus as well as Thomas and Nanette Kinkade.

Padalecki stars as Sam Winchester on the CW's "Supernatural"; he also is known for his role as Dean Forester on the television series "Gilmore Girls." His film credits include "Cry Wolf," "House of Wax" and "Flight of the Phoenix."

He is repped by CAA and Dan Spilo at Artistry Management.

Okay, if this was anyone other than the one and only Jared freaking Padalecki, total yawnfest. But since it's him, OMG YAY SO EXCITED. If you are wondering who this adorable man is, watch him kick ass on Supernatural every Thursday at 9pm on the CW.

Zac Hanson interviews for The Advocate.



"Short Answers: Zac hanson"

Former Top 40 "Mmmboppers" Hanson return as indie rockers with The Walk (July 10th) on their own 3CG label. The band's youngest member, Zac, 21, recalls their gay past.

Queer director Gus Van Sant shot the video for 1998's "Weird", a song you guys co-penned with gay songwriter-producer Desmond Child.

We chose to work with Gus because he's an incredibly talented director. I don't know if many people know this about Gus, but he's also an incredibly talented musician. He played a Woody Guthrie song with us once. I have this record [Gus] did called 18 Songs About Golf.

You guys come from a religious background. Did Gus and Desmond influence your personal views toward gays and sexuality?

My feeling toward gays is always just... everybody chooses. People's sexuality and how they live their lives-they have to decide, and it's not for me to tell them or not to. I don't walk to the marching orders or anything like that.

The song "Yearbook" is about someone upset over missing a guy named Johnny. Was this meant to be ambiguous? And more important, is Johnny hot?

Probably. Otherwise there wouldn't be so much controversy over where he is. I love that song because there are so many takes on what that would be. Maybe it's a gay song.

The band is the subject of a lot of online fan fiction, most of which imagines all or one of you, especially Taylor, as gay.

That's one end of the spectrum, and the other end is people sending you death threats. I would go with fan fiction any day. And Taylor has that thing about him-and hopefully, he'll forgive me for saying this in an interview-he's just a good-looking pretty boy.

As season-three winner Fantasia Barrino gets ready to make her Broadway debut in The Color Purple on Tuesday, she wanted to set the record straight about her tough past. She tells the New York Post that she was never, in fact, illiterate. "I dropped out of school in the ninth grade, and when I said I had trouble reading, they took it that I couldn't read at all," she says. "I knew the basics, but some words that were unfamiliar, I couldn't figure them out." However, the "brand-new" Fantasia wants the world to know this: "I'm da bomb now, babe!"

Apparently, she is. Since Oprah handpicked Fantasia to play the lead of Celie in the Broadway musical, she's been racking up box-office ticket sales – to the sweet tune of $6.5 million. But the $6 million-dollar-woman isn't nervous about living up to the hype: "I just want everyone to know that I have worked my butt off."

Kurt & Courtney movie


So AOL Music has some poll where you can vote for their choices for Kurt and Courtney for the movie that is supposedly coming out soon.

"It's been 13 years since Kurt Cobain swallowed the shotgun blast that ended his life. But the Seattle savior will soon be resurrected on the silver screen.

Kurt's wild widow Courtney Love is turning his troubled tale into a biopic and rumors are surfacing about who will play the pair on screen. Who do you think would make the best Kurt & Courtney?"

Vote here: http://music.aol.com/photo-galleries/being-kurt-cobain-courtney-love

Personally, Ewan would be my choice for Kurt. Dunno for Courtney.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters 4/13

This is Whoffleck reporting as ONTD's exclusive East Coast correspondent with a tl;dr review of.........


Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters


I'll confess straight off the bat that while I was vaguely familiar with the Adult Swim cartoon "Aqua Teen Hunger Force," I had no inkling on what the premise or hype was about. When I got news that there would be a movie based on the seven-year-old Cartoon Network show, I had no clue that it had such a large fan base to qualify as worthy to be featured on the big-screen. So like a good reporter, I decided to do some research prior to attending a private screening of the lengthy titled "Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters," (remindful of the Borat movie title, don't ya think?). Three episodes in, I completely understood the excitement, and thus began my own anticipation for the movie.

For those who are as unfamiliar with "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" as I was, the title can be misleading. First, and foremost, it has nothing to do with water! The three main characters are assumed to be teenagers, hence the "Teen" in the name, they are all a food item, which kind of explains the "Hunger," and they nonchalantly fight random crime in their hometown of New Jersey, so they’re a "Force" to be reckoned with. Get it??

The main characters: "Frylock" an intellectual set of fries (I can only assume super-sized), "Master Shake" a giant milkshake that isn't the sharpest dessert beverage in the fridge, and the cute "Meatwad" who makes your heart melt when he smiles and glances over with his puppy-dog, errr I mean, meat-ball eyes.
