milo and his emo bangs
Eight-month pregnant has never looked so…..photoshopped?
British tabloid princess Jordan proves she’s still ever bit the glamour tramp she was pre-pregnancy in a new nude photo shoot alongside her dashing hubby, Peter Andre.
hey kids! oh yes - it's tabloid time here on popbytes - i've got the latest cover of STAR magazine below which is all about brad pitt worried about jen aniston's new man hottie model paul sculfor - supposedly warning her to dump him! (via a 'touching' phone call) oh poor jen - she just can't seem to escape from being a gossip target! it still blows my mind by how much people seem to love to read about her - especially in conjunction with her ex - mr. pitt & his lady angelina jolie (although her name is left out of the cover drama this time...) i will agree that from what i've read about her new beau - he does seem like a sketchy character so jen does need to watch herself BUT let's keep in mind she's only been on maybe a few dates along with a sleepover or two (of course she needs a little nookie - i'd do him too!) she's not exactly walking down the aisle yet - everyone needs to calm themselves down and let the woman date!
in other stories they've got an update on the pregnancy status of fourteen celebs - i don't think nicole richie is preggers (at least not anymore...) but i will put some money down on christina aguilera having a baby with her hubby jordan bratman...and what about janet jackson?!? for some reason i can't see her having a child but then again you never know! right below that there's some drama about shar jackson being pregnant again with kevin federline...i don't think britney spears or anyone else for that matter gives a shit! let them have a fucking baker's dozen - who cares?!? last but not least - there's a story about paris hilton's supposed suicide drama - and her prison meltdown! i can't wait to see how long the new 'god & light loving' attitude lasts for ms. hilton! i'm willing to give her a clean slate but i'm leaning towards thinking that paris' changed ways & attitude won't last very long but only time will tell! popbytes over & out for tonight...xxoo!
ABC is not going to like this. Shar Jackson is on a show called "The Ex-Wives Club" where she helps other women and men move past their exes. Well, obviously Shar hasn't moved past her ex, because she's knocked up with his baby! That would make child #5 for KFed! Yup, he's a pimp.
Ummm I don't get it, what do these chicks see in his ass? He's not that attractive, he's a cheater, he has no job, and I could go on but I will let you guys put in your two cents. Also it's Star magazine, soooo...
Contrary to articles on the WWE website, Vince McMahon is NOT dead (sadly).
Did Vince McMahon, who’s bluffed and blustered his way into the ringmaster’s role of the testosterone-fueled soap opera that is professional wrestling, really fall for the old bomb-in-the-limo trick? Though World Wrestling Entertainment would have you believe otherwise, the answer is no. “No one was in any danger,” said Steve Poremba, a Wachovia Arena spokesman, of Monday night’s WWE RAW spectacle at the arena, though he would not elaborate.
“The ‘federal agent’ (referenced on the Web site) is definitely not the FBI,” said Jerri Williams, a special agent spokeswoman with the FBI’s Philadelphia office. “We have not been made aware of any car bombings. … We would definitely have been informed.”
Seriously, Bob Costas and Snoop Dogg teamed to kill Vince McMahon?!? I LOLed so hard when I heard this on the radio.
Jennifer Aniston is yearning for a baby, claims Star Magazine, and they say she’s ready to adopt as a single mom just like her friend, singer Sheryl Crow, recently did. What’s more is that she wants to look for an American mother, and is working on a domestic adoption. The article has no new details, just “insider quotes” and old remarks from Aniston saying she wants kids, so I would bet it’s recycled from older stories.

WTF Jen! I loved you with Brad! Why couldn't you want some babies a few years ago? Instead you wanted to focus on your career. WHAT CAREER!!??! You lose, bb. I'm sorry. You're still fine though, lady!
For the first time since their rift over her stint in rehab, Britney Spears' mother has broken her silence and talks to Us Weekly about some of the difficulties her famous daughter has faced this past year."You go into a time in your life with the world watching and you are just trying to figure yourself out," Lynne Spears tells Us in an exclusive interview that is featured in the latest issue of the magazine. "It's sad that the whole world had to watch her make mistakes that all of us have made at one time or another."
Earlier this year, the pop star found herself in a downward spiral that culminated in a wild public meltdown that featured video footage of her shaving her head in a California salon and lashing out against a photographer¹s car with an umbrella before she checked into rehab.
And her famous blond locks weren¹t the only thing the mother of two cut off at that time.
"She decided that she had to cut out everyone who was using her, and that included her parents," says a source of Spears, 26. The estrangement was especially hard on the pop star's mother.
"Lynne was like Britney's best friend, so when Britney started partying and her mom tried to control her, she got mad," a family source explains.
Happily, the two reconciled on June 10, speaking for the first time in months and quietly taking their first steps back to a peaceful relationship.
And now Lynne tells Us Weekly how she and her daughter are coping.
"Britney Jean Spears is the sweetest and the most sensitive and loving of all my children," the mother of three tells Us. "She's just figuring things out." SOURCE

Great piece in the New York Times, inviting the writers of other television programs to weigh in on David Chase's bold conclusion to The Sopranos. Among the takes:
Damon Lindelof, Lost: "The ending was letter-perfect.... Afterward I went to bed and lay next to my wife, awake, thinking about it for the next two hours. I just thought it was great."
Doug Ellin, Entourage: "I'm just speechless. I'm sure there is going to be a lot of heated discussion, but that's David Chase's genius."
Chuck Lorre, Two and a Half Men, quips, "This is what you get when you let a writer do whatever he wants. [But] people just finished watching the show and immediately talked about it for a half-hour. What more could you want as a writer?"
Tim Kring, Heroes: While noting that the storytelling throughout the finale felt "a bit disjointed," Kring says, "As soon as it ended, I went there.... I put myself years into the future thinking about what you do when you have viewers with these sorts of expectations. I think you just have to be true to what you were originally trying to say."
Carlton Cuse, Lost: "A sense of fear ran through my veins, thinking that we are going to be in this position [in] 48 short episodes. But it settled well with me. In that blank screen, there was a... purity in the choice Chase made."
Both Losties liked it? Be very afraid for May 2010. Be. Very. Afraid.
who knows maybe this will be the start of "Choose Your Own Adventure" tv series - press 1, 2 or 3 on your remote when prompted to choose the direction the next scene takes. Everyone gets their way and no one can biatch for days on end that the ending was or wasn't what they wanted.
On how flying helps him escape:
“When I’m acting, I’m thinking of how I’m going to play a character, so it’s all inward thinking. But when I’m flying, there are dials and throttles and all these things I have to pay attention to. I’m out of my head. I’m extroverted. If I’m working on my next pilot’s rating, I’m too busy to think, ‘Am I hot? Am I over?’ I’m living life.”
On his family:
“I’m pretty tough, but I’m a better fighter for others than for myself. The one way to hurt me would be through my wife Kelly or my children. My kids are my heartbeat. My protective feathers come up.”
On being a celebrity:
“I’ve always said that people in our position are the most sensitive and the toughest people you’ll ever meet. You can’t let go of your sensitivity, but at the same time, you have to be ready to battle the worst insults, the worst innuendos. People say things that hurt. I think, ‘Wow, so because I have money or fame, I don’t have problems? I don’t have feelings?’”
On being in drag as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray:
“Guys from the crew were hitting on me. I have to make a living. I have to work, but it has to be fun.”
On wanting his daughter, Ella, to become an actress:
“My daughter is breathtakingly beautiful and very talented. I’d like to introduce her to the world. I will give her as much guidance as I can. Not bad to think I’m like Henry Fonda and she’s Jane Fonda. Let it be the heritage, the family business.”
On his son Jett:
“As for my son Jett, acting is not his thing. He’s an outdoors kind of boy who loves to swim and drive go-karts. But he’s so good-looking, maybe we’ll put him in a scene just to make it a real family event.”
On the glass being half-full:
“I’ve seen the glass as half-full ever since I was a kid. I remember that we were at a beach, and there was a gal that wasn’t particularly attractive, but she had a great pair of legs. And one of my friends said to me, ‘That girl should not be in a bathing suit.’ I said, ‘But look at her legs. They are awesome.’ That’s how I view my life.”
PUBLIC pressure to visit daughter Lindsay in rehab finally got to Dina Lohan. But the self-centered mom forgot to tell the people behind Animal Fair Magazine's eighth annual Cesar Paws for Style event. Organizers were furious when Dina and her youngest daughter, Ali, no- showed, prompting Animal Fair editrix Wendy Diamond to quip to the crowd, "Chloe Lohan [the Lohan dog] was sent to rehab after overdosing on [pet medication] Frontline. Like daughter, like dog." Hayden Panettiere, Cornelia Guest, Bethenny Frankel and Richard Belzer kept their word - as did Lorenzo Borghese, who spent the rest of the night drinking Bartles & Jaymes wine coolers.
You know she didn't want to go anywhere near a rehab, because those councilors would take one look at her cracked out appearance and lock her up too.
Eminem and Mariah Carey seem to have the gripe that keeps on giving.
A source claims Eminem has returned to their famously contentious fling, six years ago, for unflattering material on his forthcoming album.
"There is more than one track that goes into really specific, intimate detail about what went on between Em and Mariah," an insider tells OK! magazine.
The source claims Carey has asked the head of her Island Def Jam label, L.A. Reid, to intervene.
"Mariah wishes she could sue Eminem for slander," says the snitch. "But it's his freedom of speech."
Ill will has continued to simmer between the recording stars, even though they seem to have had the briefest of affairs in 2001.
Eminem mocked Carey by releasing voice messages, said to be from her, of a woman pleading: "Why won't you see me? Why won't you call me?"
Eminem has confirmed the fling, although Carey denies it. She told Playboy earlier this year: "Something is clearly askew with him. I'm curious as to why he's so obsessed with me."
And on the seventh day, God created a new Paris.
America's favorite heir-head called Barbara Walters on Sunday to tell the talk-show host about how jail has changed her and about the new direction her life will take upon release.
"I'm not the same person I was," she told Walters, who recounted her words yesterday on "The View." "I know now that I can make a difference, that I have the power to do that. I have been thinking that I want to do different things when I am out of here. I have become much more spiritual," added Hilton, who has at least two weeks left to serve in the medical ward of a Los Angeles County jail. "God has given me this new chance."
This is a drastic new tack for the 26-year-old, who was previously known for partying and pampering rather than prayers and penance. But somehow, after only seven days in custody (including one night in the comfort of her own home), she's been shocked into spirituality. Before heading to jail, she was spotted toting religious books like "The Power of Now" and the Bible, making sure to carry them with their titles out so paparazzi could capture them. Many of her fans just thought the books were for show. But Walters claims that when she talked to Hilton, the imprisoned princess was serious and didn't whine or complain. "She sounded tired but totally aware of what she was saying," the journalist wrote on abcnews.com.
In her conversation with Walters, Hilton gave an explanation for her previous behavior and spoke about how she would like to behave in the future. "I used to act dumb. It was an act," she explained. "I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute. It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me.
"My spirit or soul did not like the way I was being seen and that is why I was sent to jail," she continued. "God has released me."
Hilton went on to outline the kinds of things she would like to do with her newfound goodwill, including help with research on breast cancer (which struck a grandmother) or multiple sclerosis (which affected her other grandmother). She even suggested the creation of a Paris Hilton Playhouse for children, where she could enlist the aid of toy companies to create a safe and happy haven for ailing children.
Walters said Hilton has a spiritual adviser who helped her come to these realizations. With that aid, Hilton says that she is "hanging in there," and has decided to drop her appeal because she didn't want to "cause any more problems." Walters also said Paris told her mother, "I will never again have a drink and drive."
Pat Nolan, vice president of Prison Fellowship Ministries and a former convict, told The News that while Hilton's experience of finding God in jail is common, it's not something that usually sets in so quickly.
"It's a whole long process. You don't change overnight," said Nolan, who was a California assemblyman before being jailed on bribery charges. "The test will be, when she's freed from this, will she say, 'This has been a transformative experience. I will never be the same?'
"For some, they begin to think, 'Hey, I got though this okay. I can handle it,' and they forget the humility that they had inside," said Nolan, whose experience at finding religion in prison led him to try to help others. "The temptations in the outside world are tough."
Even some celebrity experts were stumped by the latest Paris revelation. When she is released in a few weeks, of course, there's no telling what might happen.
"It's hard to say," says Ken Baker, editorial director of usmagazine.com, who knows Hilton and has written about her extensively. "At the end of the day, I think Paris, like anyone who is thrown in jail, is scared to go back. It appears she wants to do everything in her life to avoid it."
In Hollywood, that may just be good enough for sainthood.
Paris' pet causes
Saved socialite Paris Hilton credited a "spiritual adviser" with showing her the error of her ways. In her newfound role as Saint Paris, the once material girl can now use her spare time to help needy causes close to her heart...
PATRON SAINT: ANGELINA JOLIE
A pious Paris can take less fortunate little ones under her wing à la Angelina Jolie. Rather than adopting from Africa or Cambodia, however, she can whisk underprivileged kids and orphans away from downtown L.A. to live in her posh mansion — like Daddy Warbucks, but with better hair.
PATRON SAINT: PAMELA ANDERSON
Paris can follow the lead of another blond party girl, Pamela Anderson, the PETA pusher. Think about it: All of her animal love would no longer be just for her prized teacup Chihuahua, Tinkerbell. The heiress with a heart of gold could spread the wealth, helping all the world's animals be chic and properly accessorized.
PATRON SAINT: KATIE COURIC
Nothing says philanthropy like becoming the front woman for a disease. Paris can be the next Katie Couric, who underwent a televised colonoscopy to further public awareness of colon cancer. So what public-service announcement can the wild- girl-gone-good perform? After officials found a Valtrex prescription in the socialite's seized storage unit this year, how about taking up the torch for herpes?
Here we go! This week we all discussed whether or not Christina Aguilera was pregnant. Now, rumors are beginning to surface that Jennifer Garner is expecting baby number two with hubby Ben Affleck. The reports are that she was spotted exiting a doctor’s office with a “visible baby bump”. But we know how deceiving those bumps can be. If it IS true, then I am very happy for them!
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are expecting their second child, it has been claimed. The ‘Catch and Release’ actress was reportedly seen leaving a doctor’s office sporting a clearly visible baby bump. A source told New Weekly magazine, “She was very happy and glowing. She touched her stomach for a moment. She looked pregnant.” The couple - who have a 16-month-old daughter Violet - are said to be “thrilled” with the news.
A second source said, “They were hoping to have another baby fairly soon so that Violet would have a sibling to grow up with. “She’s an affectionate, happy child. Jen thinks she’ll love being a big sister.”

A source on the set of Matt's new film, "Surfer Dude," tells TMZ that during a recent pool party scene that featured a bunch of female extras in bathing suits, McConaughey, who is also a producer on the movie, told the ladies if they took their tops off they would get more money for their time. We're told many of the women agreed. Welcome to Hollywood, girls!
With the female extras in all their bare-bosomed glory, Matt then requested girl-on-girl action for the scene. Sources tell TMZ that his request was not met with any complaints and only one extra left the set. Maybe this film will be good after all!
A rep for McConaughey told TMZ, "You should check with the Screen Actors Guild as they determine the pay scale and not Matthew McConaughey."
What a classy guy. Excuse me while I barf, won't you?.
Angelina Jolie is in Prague filming her new new movie, Wanted, and recently took a break to visit a sex shop and purchase a black leather garter belt and a black riding crop. Mike Walker asks:
Since Angelina doesn't ride horses in her movie, this week's intriguing gossip question is: If the idea is to whip up a little consensual fun, who's the whip-ee? Or is the crop simply a decorator accessory destined to hang on a wall?"
If you're still beating your head against the wall as to why Brad Pitt would leave Jennifer Aniston, be a father of four in just two years and eat something that looks like soup out of a skull in Africa, please let this be your final clue. It's all worth it when you get home and Angelina rides you like a mechanical bull. Angelina Jolie could run over my parents and I'd offer her a back massage to calm her nerves.

In 1999, before becoming a star on HBO's Entourage, actor Adrian Grenier decided to make a documentary about the father he had never known. The result is this poignant, often-amusing road trip from New York to Ohio, spiced by interviews with a wide array of fathers and sons about the meaning of fatherhood--and a parent's impact on one's sense of self. In his directorial debut, Grenier embarks on a deeply personal quest that culminates in his decision to meet with his biological father for the first time in 18 years.

Cox shoots the Moon
Singer records loving tribute to Dinah Washington
By JASON MACNEIL, SPECIAL TO SUN MEDIA
Just as actress Halle Berry made it her mission to tell the story of actress Dorothy Dandridge, singer Deborah Cox has taken up the mantle for the late singer Dinah Washington with her new album Destination Moon.
"The attraction with her was the legacy of her music, spirit and dynamic of her talent, ability and story," Cox told Sun Media last week. "And everyone has done tributes to Billie (Holiday), to Ella (Fitzgerald), to Sarah (Vaughan). I really wanted to pay homage to this woman who people don't know very much about."

The 19-year-old’s new co-op stretches 1,600 square feet, with re-sanded hardwood floors and three bathrooms.

Way back in a more grubby and innocent era of downtown New York, supermodels didn’t buy many combined-unit East Village apartments. But those days are long gone, so it’s hardly surprising that Gemma Ward, American Vogue’s youngest-ever cover girl, has bought a three-bedroom co-op on East Sixth Street between Second and Third avenues that was originally three units.
According to city records, she paid $1.525 million. Only two and a half years ago, gallingly, an apartment two floors up sold for $290,000.
Indeed, the building hasn’t always been a million-dollar place. “It was one of these East Village tenement things,” said listing broker Karen Donica, the younger half of mother-daughter realty firm Custom Brokers. But a cement backyard was dug up and greened, and now “there are lanterns in the garden and beautiful planting …. People just go down there and have a drink, and read a book.”
After an open house, there was a bidding war for the apartment. Did Ms. Donica tell the seller—a former Web developer for MTV Networks named Bernard Meisler—that one of his potential buyers was 19-year-old Ms. Ward?
“No. I did tell him, let’s say, that she was young, whereas the other [potential buyer] was not young.”
“They were both equally qualified,” the broker said about the bidders. “It didn’t really matter that she was a supermodel.”
Incidentally, this reporter also didn’t know that Ms. Ward was a supermodel before a brief barroom encounter last summer. (There was a conversation about her Australian accent, and then she excused herself: “I’m going to go to the bathroom. O.K.?”) In person, Ms. Ward looks like an archangel from Neptune.

Shar Jackson is denying recent reports that she’s is pregnant with Kevin Federline’s child. In fact, she is not pregnant at all.
"It is not even remotely true,” Jackson’s rep tells Usmagazine.com.
Federline's rep also insists the rumors are "not true."
The erroneous story originated in this week’s Star magazine, which reported that Jackson, 30, is six weeks along with Federline’s child.
Jackson and Federline, 29, have two children together, a daughter Kori, 4, and a son Kaleb, 2. The Ex Wives Club star also has two children from a previous relationship.
Federline also has two sons with Britney Spears, Sean, 21 months, and Jayden, 9 months.

There two pictures at the source. Nothing worth posting though.
Britney Spears’ mother is feuding with her troubled daughter, and she has an unlikely ally in the battle: her former son-in-law.
The tension began when Lynne Spears took the "Toxic" singer to rehab in February, according to Life & Style, which reports that the singer told her mom: “Say goodbye, mama, because this is the last time you’ll ever speak to me.”
Lynne Spears hoped to reconcile with her daughter on June 10 when she went to a Beverly Hills party that Britney was also attending. The singer wasn’t aware that her mother would be there, however, and “she froze when she saw Lynne,” an insider told L&S. “Brit was cordial, but you could’ve cut the tension with a knife.”
Now, the only time that Lynne Spears sees her grandchildren is when Kevin Federline brings them to see her — and she keeps siding with her daughter’s estranged husband on issues of custody.
“The Spears family loves Kevin; he lets them see the babies whenever he has them,” an insider told the mag. A “pal” also said, “Brit’s paranoid that her mom and Kevin are working to take the kids away from her.”
Spears has actually contacted a lawyer to cut her mother out of her will, according to L&S. “Lynne is more hurt than anything,” an insider told the mag. “She feels she sacrificed everything for Britney.”
Jake Gyllenhaal is deciding whether he'll attempt to climb a peak even more treacherous than Brokeback Mountain – Broadway.
The Oscar nominee, 26, is mulling over the starring role in the political stage drama Farragut North, to open this fall, the show's producer, Jeffrey Richards, confirms to PEOPLE. Gyllenhaal's decision is expected by the end of this week.
News of Gyllenhaal's prospective Broadway debut was first reported in the New York Post, which said a private reading of the work was held last week.
Gyllenhaal would play an idealistic communications director for an unorthodox presidential candidate said to be based on 2004 Democratic candidate Howard Dean. The play's title refers to the Washington, D.C., metro stop located near the offices of several lobbyists, the Post reports.
According to The New York Times, the show's creator, Brooklyn-based Beau Willimon, 29, is "a playwright [who] worked on Howard Dean's presidential campaign."
Gyllenhaal is himself no stranger to politics. In 2004 he participated in the Rock the Vote campaign, to help young people register to vote, and he campaigned for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.

High School Musical stars Zac Efron and Vanessa Anne Hudgens have reportedly ended their real-life romance after a dream vacation turned into a nightmare. The young lovers were spotted hand in hand at the MTV Movie Awards on June 3 but a road trip immediately following the event really tested their love for each other. An insider tells America's In Touch Weekly magazine, "Zac borrowed a car and the two headed off on their own. It was raining and they soon got lost. Zac was yelling at Vanessa that it was her fault." The teenage couple reportedly got into an argument and split up on the trip.

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Jennifer Aniston will produce and potentially star in a period musical about singing prisoners.
"Goree Girls" revolves around eight women at Texas' Goree Prison during the 1940s who formed one of the first all-female country and western acts in the country and captured the hearts of millions of fans in the process. The project is set up at DreamWorks, which is looking for a director.
Aniston and her producing partner Kristin Hahn optioned Skip Hollandsworth's May 2003 article in Texas Monthly titled "O Sister Where Art Thou," which recounted the story of the women, who eventually were pardoned.
Aniston, a former partner in ex-husband Brad Pitt's Plan B production company, has several projects in development via that relationship, including the upcoming Pitt vehicle "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford."

Sienna Miller has blasted critics who believe fellow actress Keira Knightley suffers from anorexia, insisting she eats "like a horse". The Pirates Of The Caribbean beauty was a source of constant speculation earlier this year when she appeared thinner than usual.
But Miller, who has befriended Knightley on the set of their latest film The Best Time of Our Lives, insists her co-star is happy and healthy.
She says, "She eats like a horse. She always asks for seconds and loves her apple crumble. There's no way she has an eating problem.
"She is a really good friend of mine, she is a wonderful girl. Eats like a pig for everyone out there who calls her anorexic."
the rich girl singer used to raid her friends' mother's make-up boxes at every opportunity & loved experimenting with cosmetics.
gwen told TV hits magazine: "i was always the girl who, after school every day, would say, 'ask your mom if we can play with her make-up ! & then we'd do that for about four hours !
"i would burn everybody with the curling iron, i'd do make-overs on everyone.
"i was a make-up artist in a mall when i was 17 so it's always something i've been into."
mother-of-one gwen insists she rarely goes out without make-up & doesn't care what people think about her obsession.
the 37-year-old star - who is married to british rocker gavin rossdale - said: "everyone has criticized me for wearing too much make-up but i've also made a career out of it !"
"my make-up must have is my lipstick. it's what my husband likes me in & i definitely try to please him!"

As spokesperson for their Fall '07 line, Fergie had Candie's dress her hump for her "Big Girls Don't Cry" video. The results were Fergatrocious!
In the clip, Fergie Fug plays the trashstastic girlfriend of "Heroes" star Milo Ventimiglia, wearing outfits from Candie's Juniors line, which is available exclusively at Kohl's, and more appropriate for a 15-year-old bohemian hussy punk. Fergie is 32.
In a marketing move to rival the brilliance of New Coke, Candie's is using clips and pics from the stylistically-challenged video for their advertising campaign. Soon everyone will be able to look like a runaway teen.
Director assembles an international cast for co-produced feature film of Nobel Prize-winning novel, Blindness

Oscar-nominated director Fernando Meirelles cast the talent net wide for his upcoming apocalyptic feature film, Blindness, and has signed an international roster of stars that includes Hollywood A-listers such as Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore, as well as a half-dozen Canadians, including Sandra Oh, Maury Chaykin, Don McKellar and Martha Burns.

I'm excited. Fernando Meirelles directed City of God and The Constant Gardener, and his cinematographer César Charlone is also working on this one. It should be all around awesomes.
At issue: Whether the incarcerated heiress could ever become a cohost on the daytime chatfest.
Speaking together on Monday's night edition of Walters's SIRIUS Satellite Radio show Barbara Live, the veteran journalist fielded a question from a listener who asked if Hilton would ever be allowed to cohost the TV show?
"She would certainly always give us something to talk about," Walters – who earlier on that day's The View had told of her phone conversation with Hilton – said on the radio.
But Geddie was less enthusiastic. "Let me answer that," he said. "No." This prompted Walters to respond, "Let me answer that: Yes."
Geddie insisted his reaction to Hilton was nothing personal. "We've been around [Hilton] ... and she's perfectly pleasant."
Still, by Wednesday, Walters no longer seemed so particularly keen to sign Hilton to The View. Speaking to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, Walters was asked if she'd ever try to speak with Hilton again.
"I hadn't really thought about it," she said. "I wasn't trying to speak with her [we did speak]."
Pressed Seacrest, "I would assume that you would be in discussion with her about having that first interview [after she's out of jail].
"I have not discussed that," replied Walters. "We have not discussed an interview."

Beyonce left a fan heartbroken and in tears after she refused to sign a portrait of herself that took him well over 80 hours to paint!
Artist Paul Stillwell, who took to painting to deal with his mother’s death, had painted the diva in the cover of her ‘Dangerously in Love’ album.
The avid Beyonce fan wanted to get the songstress’ autograph on his work and he traveled all the way to London to meet her, when she visited the country for her Wembley concert.
“I traveled 100 miles to London and waited outside her hotel for five hours. … When she came out I showed her my painting and said, ‘Beyonce, will you sign my painting?’ She said, ‘No, sorry,’ and walked away,” the New York Daily News quoted him, as saying.
Needless to say the young aritst was left ‘devastated.’
He added that it took him more than three days to make the portrait and Beyonce did not even want to “two seconds of her time to sign her name on it.”
Just wait until Beyonce faces some backlash of this very latest incident. If you thought PETA was tough wait until you see the wrath of a bunch of starving artists.
I'm pretty sure everyone knows him, but just in case, he's best known for his role in Memento and is an awesome actor. Eye candy material too.

"Richie Sambora has completed a program at the UCLA Medical Center," a Bon Jovi rep tells PEOPLE. "He is doing well and continues to receive outside support."
Last week, Sambora's rep said in a statement that the guitarist, 47, had entered an undisclosed treatment facility in Los Angeles. The specific nature of his problem was not disclosed at the time.
It has been a trying year for Sambora. In April, his divorce from Heather Locklear was finalized, and that same month, his father died of lung cancer. His relationship with girlfriend Denise Richards also ended.
"Richie has had a terrible year," a close friend of the rocker told PEOPLE. "I think this was a culmination of all these things and finally he realized he needed to take care of himself. He'd put off everything for so long, taking care of everyone else, it was just time to stop and deal with his issues."
The group is scheduled to play some shows this summer, beginning June 24 in London, but it is a relatively light schedule.
The band's new album, Lost Highway, is due out on June 19, when Bon Jovi is scheduled to perform on the Today show, and the band will perform on The View on June 20. Sambora is expected to be at both appearances.

In the early morning hours of Friday, June 8, Paris Hilton was paid a visit by a man who, while walking out of Hilton's home at 4 a.m., confirmed to an X17 cameraman that he was her doctor. The doctor was also spotted outside Hilton's court hearing later that day, but wasn't allowed into the building because he arrived late.
Usmagazine.com can report that the man was, in fact, Dr. Steven Hoefflin, a renowned cosmetic surgeon, who has been dubbed "the plastic surgeon to the stars."
A source tells Us that Hoefflin is something akin to the Hilton family's private doctor, who consults with family members on medical issues -- including, but not limited to, cosmetic issues.
Hofflein, who has a practice in Santa Monica, is best known as Michael Jackson's former plastic surgeon. He also has reportedly done work on Sly Stallone, Joan Rivers, Liz Taylor and Janet Jackson.

As predicted, the Beastie Boys will be playing some U.S. shows this summer in addition to their European festival dates. According to the band’s flack, the following shows will feature the Beasties “in all their traditional hip hop glory,” which means that their gig at Brooklyn’s smallish McCarren Pool should be, as the kids say, “off the heazy.” Even more intimate gigs featuring the band’s instrumental configuration from their new album The Mix-Up are going to be announced soon.
8/1 Philadelphia - Festival Pier
8/6 Boston - Bank of America Pavilion

Here's a recent photoshoot of Cillian. We're talking major HQ photos. And some news to be put in as well.
And some news concerning his movies...
Sources: uCillian and CillianSite
Paris Hilton's mortal enemy, Shanna Moakler, couldn't help but laugh when photogs asked how she felt about the heiress being incarcerated.
Ms. Moakler played coy with paparazzi outside Mr. Chow, but did offer up a few venomous tidbits, telling TMZ cameras, "I think she's loving this" and "I'm sending her flowers tonight," said the former Miss USA, who was clearly not voted Miss Congeniality.
Though somewhat quiet last night, Shanna took her frustrations with Hilton to the blogging world earlier this week on her MySpace page by saying not enough news coverage has been devoted to Iraq and it's "sadly" Paris-centric. Moakler added "She's the kind of girl who climbed the ladder of success wrong by wrong."
Dan Rather continued his blowhard tour today, blaming the "dumbing down" and "tarting up" of news -- as he has put it -- on Paris Hilton and the media's blanket coverage of the heiress' jail travails.
Talking to FOX News, Rather slammed the wall-to-wall Paris-in-the-slammer coverage, criticizing his ex-bosses at CBS News for running Hilton stories on the evening news. "There's no empirical evidence that by going with Paris Hilton that [the newscast] attracts a younger audience," said Rather.
Rather tried to deflect criticism of news coverage from his replacement, Katie Couric, to his ex-boss, CBS CEO Les Mooves -- and now, inevitably, to Paris. Kenneth, what's the frequency?
Is Britney Spears getting paid for pics? TMZ has an interesting story today wondering why Britney keeps changing into horrible outfit after horrible outfit on an almost hourly basis. Is it a sorority hazing? Is it because she's demented white trash? Maybe not.
When a star is snapped on the same day wearing the same thing, chances are that media outlets (like TMZ) are less likely to purchase more than one photo. But when a gallivanting starlet wears one look during the day and then changes into another, the photos of both outfits will likely sell. Cha-ching!
So, if Britney's multiple looks are a calculated strategy to sell photos -- is she in on the deal?
Rumors are that Britney is working with a certain stalkerazzi agency. We contacted Brit's rep but didn't hear back by post time.
Does she really need the money? I thought she had done pretty well for herself before she went off the deep end. When contacted, Britney's rep denied the whole story but added "...but yeah, aren't those outfits terrifying? I told her not to wear that green-looking silk one with her boobs hanging out of it but, but she merely kept drankin' that moonshine and cackling while searching J.J.'s diaper bag for the Slim Jim she thought she left in there."
Former Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm has praised British rockers the Kaiser Chiefs for their extensive knowledge of the now-defunct girl band. The singer revealed earlier this month the I Predict A Riot stars had played a key part in her decision to welcome a Spice Girls reunion, with drummer Nick Hodgson insisting she should agree to a comeback with ex-bandmates Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Melanie Brown.
And Chisholm admits the Kaiser Chiefs' knowledge of Spice Girls trivia is often scary.
She says, "(The Kaiser Chiefs) are brilliant, they're super cool! They knew things about the Spice Girls even I didn't know! It freaked me out!"
John Cusack Calls Hilary Duff 'A Revelation'; Has His Eye On 'Watchmen'
Actor also talks horror flick '1408,' classics like 'Better Off Dead.'
Attention Zack Snyder: After years of playing the characters we all wanted to be — you know, the guys that were just a bit smarter, just a bit braver, just a bit funnier than the rest of us — John Cusack wants nothing more for himself than to be, well, wanted. The everyman actor sat down with MTV News to discuss his new horror movie, "1408" (which is based on a Stephen King short story of the same name); what he remembers from "Better Off Dead"; what it's like working with Hilary Duff; and why, more than anything, he wants Snyder to cast him in his upcoming "Watchmen." (And if he does, John, what do we want? Ten percent.)

Okay, so let the Hilary bashing begin... but you have to admit, The Lizzie McGuire Movie was cinematic gold.
Pop-R&B sensation Rihanna may claim to be a bad girl, but Canadians don't seem to mind.
The 19-year-old's third full-length disc, "Good Girl Gone Bad," checked in at No. 1 on the album charts this week with over 17,000 in sales, according to data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.
It marks the second straight time that Rihanna has come in on top. Her last album, "Girl Like Me," accomplished the feat in May of 2006, selling 12,000 copies.
Elsewhere, Claude Dubois' "Duos Dubois" (15,000) held on tight to No. 2, while Celine Dion's French-language album "D'elles" (11,000) slipped to No. 3 after one week at No. 1.
Michael Buble's "Call Me Irresponsible" and Linkin Park's "Minutes To Midnight" both fell one position to No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.
A crop of debuts occupied the next three spots, with Paul McCartney's "Memory Almost Full" at No. 6, Jean-Pierre Ferland's "Ce Soir La" at No. 7, and Marilyn Manson's "Eat Me, Drink Me" at No. 8.
Maroon 5's "It Won't Be Soon Before Long" fell another four notches to No. 9, and Ozzy Osbourne's latest disc "Black Rain" held onto No. 10.
Other notable debuts included The Police's 2-CD best of collection at No. 12, Chris Cornell's "Carry On" at No. 14, Dream Theatre's "Systematic Chaos" at No. 15, Belly's "Revolution" at No. 27, Bruce Springsteen's "Live in Dublin" at No. 31, and Big & Rich's "Between Hell Raising and Amazing Grace" at No. 32.
In the U.S., T-Pain's "Epiphany" came in at No. 1, followed by Rihanna in second, Paul McCartney in third, R. Kelly's "Double Up" in fourth, and Maroon 5 in fifth.
Ryan is getting in all sorts of good daddy time with Deacon and Ava the week before Father's Day. These kids look so identical to both their parents it's pretty much the cutest thing ever (which is not something I just throw around, or maybe it is, but this totally wins). Deacon is going to be such a heartbreaker! Even Ryan, who I've been pretty down on recently looks-wise, is hot in these pictures. That being said, maybe little Ava and Deacon should look into getting Ryan some FitSugar approved Father's Day Gifts, if you catch my drift.

Mandy Moore disses her earlier music
06/12/2007 10:00 PM, Yahoo! Music
In a recent interview with G4 TV, singer/actress Mandy Moore was surprisingly candid when discussing the merits of her past pop albums.
When G4 host Zach Selwyn admitted to Moore, "I'm not really that familiar with your more recent albums," Moore quipped, "And you shouldn't be!"
When Selwyn replied, "Well, I have all your old albums," Moore then answered, "You should not have any of it."
Moore, who is about to release her largely self-penned folk-pop album Wild Hope, later conceded that her 2003 covers album Coverage "is OK, but anything pre-Coverage you should throw out and burn."
Wild Hope is released June 19. Mandy Moore's full G4 interview can be viewed here.

By LINDA IMMEDIATOA group of well-kempt 30-somethings, the kind who use expensive bath products and wear clothes that require dry cleaning, trickle into an old Tudor-style home on a tree-lined street barely in the hills of Los Feliz. This is the house where Vince lives, or rather, it’s the home of the actor Adrian Grenier, who plays Vince on HBO’s Entourage. Tonight he’s playing host for a party he’s calling a fund-rager. Everyone pays $100 for all the drinks and Whole Foods crudités they could want; the money goes to Kiva, a San Francisco–based group that makes microloans to entrepreneurs in developing countries.
My only problem is that I’m the plus-one of a friend who’s already in the party and my name’s not on the list. Also, I’d been told that since I have less than $100 in my bank account I could “just bring 20 bucks or something,” but I’m starting to doubt that advice.
As I palm a wrinkled twenty, shiny people ahead of me swipe their credit cards at a machine on a table in the foyer while Grenier welcomes his guests, smiling and hypnotizing them with his sultry blue eyes. When it’s my turn to face Grenier, I nervously explain my plus-one status and, feeling particularly unglamorous and uncool in my 7-year-old Seven jeans, hand him my folded bill. I can’t bear to watch the disdain that will certainly appear on his face as he uncrumples the bill and realizes that I’ve shortchanged the citizens of developing nations, so I rush through the door to find my friend.

Rod Stewart's son believes that the couple suing him for allegedly bashing them with a brick during an alleged early morning attack a few months back are only after him because of who he is.
One day after Stewart was arrested in Hollywood on charges of assault and battery, his lawyer is firing back in a statement to TMZ:
"We have conducted an extensive investigation since these allegations were first raised. We have interviewed numerous witnesses who were at the party on the night of the incident. Our investigation has revealed that what occurred on the night of the incident is much different than what the complaining witness has alleged.
We will share our investigation with the prosecution at the appropriate time. Our investigation has shown that the alleged victim only named Sean Stewart as a suspect after hearing that Mr. Stewart was at the party that night and that the alleged victim had a financial motive to make these allegations against Mr. Stewart.
Our investigation has also revealed that any crimes which may have been committed that night, were in fact committed by the person who claims to be the victim."
So the couple threw bricks at themselves?
Oh okay just as along as I got that cleared up.

Fla. Women Sue 'Girls Gone Wild' Creator
PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) - Two Florida women have sued "Girls Gone Wild" creator Joe Francis and his film company, alleging a sexually explicit video was released without their consent.
In the federal lawsuit filed Monday in Panama City, Brooke Pastolic and Christina Brose said they were enticed to board a "Girls Gone Wild" tour bus with the promise of free clothing. Once onboard, they allegedly were given alcoholic drinks even though both were younger than 21.
