NEW YORK - A piece of outer space named for George Takei is in kind of a rough neighborhood for somebody who steers a starship: an asteroid belt.
An asteroid between Mars and Jupiter has been renamed 7307 Takei in honor of the actor, best known for his role as Hikaru Sulu in the original "Star Trek" series and movies.
"I am now a heavenly body," Takei, 70, said Tuesday, laughing. "I found out about it yesterday. ... I was blown away. It came out of the clear, blue sky _ just like an asteroid."
The celestial rock, discovered by two Japanese astronomers in 1994, was formerly known as 1994 GT9. It joins the 4659 Roddenberry (named for the show's creator, Gene Roddenberry) and the 68410 Nichols (for co-star Nichelle Nichols, who played Lt. Uhura). Other main-belt asteroids have been named for science fiction luminaries Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov.
The renaming of 7307 Takei was approved by the International Astronomical Union's Committee on Small Body Nomenclature. About 14,000 asteroid names have been approved by the panel, while about 165,000 asteroids have been identified and numbered, union spokesman Lars Lindberg Christensen said.
Unlike the myriad Web sites that offer to sell naming rights to stars, the IAU committee-approved names are actually used by astronomers, said Tom Burbine, the Mount Holyoke College astronomy professor who proposed the name swap.
"This is the name that will be used for all eternity," he said.
Burbine said he suggested Takei's name in part out of appreciation for his work with the Japanese American Citizens League and with the gay rights group Human Rights Campaign. Takei, a spokesman for HRC's Coming Out Project, was cultural affairs chairman of the JACL, and he was appointed to the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission by former President Clinton.
Takei has appeared on NBC's "Heroes" and appears regularly on Howard Stern's satellite radio show.
Under the committee's policies, whoever discovers an asteroid has 10 years in which to propose a name. After that, the panel considers other suggestions, although it warns would-be namers to avoid anything "in questionable taste" and any names honoring political or military figures sooner than 100 years after their deaths.
Something That I Already Know
Ryan Gosling stands beside a life-size poster of himself at the premiere of MGM’s Lars And The Real Girl at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences on Tuesday in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The film stars Gosling as Lars Lindstrom, a shy reticent whose emotional baggage has kept him from fully embracing life. After years of what is almost solitude, he invites Bianca, a friend he met on the internet, to visit him. He introduces Bianca to his brother Gus (Paul Schneider, pictured below) and his wife Karen (Emily Mortimer). They don’t know what to say to Lars or Bianca – because she is a life-size doll, not a real person, and he is treating her as though she is alive. They consult the family doctor Dagmar (Patricia Clarkson, pictured below) who explains that this is a delusion he’s created – for what reason she doesn’t yet know but they should all go along with it for the time being. Lars and the Real Girl opens in theaters nationwide on October 12.

First off, the names of the four Futurama movies:
-Bender's Big Score
-The Beast With a Billion Backs
-Into the Wild Green Yonder
All 4 new Futurama movie DVDs are going to be released in "Glorious Widescreen" (1.78:1) with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and will be available in both DVD and High-Definition format. Each of the feature-length movies (approximately 88 minutes) will be cut and reconfigured to be shown as four individual episodes on Comedy Central sometime after the release on DVD (date has not yet been set). The current plan states that the TV episodes are going to be in 4:3 to match the earlier episodes. All the more reason to buy the DVDs once they are available!
A big part of the show's magic touch comes from Lee Pace, who plays Ned, the pie baker who learns at a young age that he can bring things back to life — including, in the pilot, his childhood sweetheart, Chuck Charles (Anna Friel). You may recognize him from The Good Shepherd or "Wonderfalls," but it's Pace's sweet turn in this show that could make him a star. At the TCA press tour in July, I chatted with Pace about working with director Barry Sonnenfeld, playing such a good guy, and — of course — those pies.
How did you get involved with "Pushing Daisies"?
I'd done movies the past few years — I know that sounds so pretentious; I just mean to say that I really wasn't looking at TV scripts. I heard that Brian [Fuller, the show's creator, whom Pace worked with on "Wonderfalls"] was doing a show, and I was just curious to see what he was doing — I wanted to read it, be like, "Congratulations, good luck, knock 'em dead, it's gonna be a big hit." And I read it, and I was like, this is actually really really good. This character is better than a lot of characters I've ever read, and I kind of want to play it. I thought about it, I talked to Brian a lot, and it just got to be too compelling to turn down, and I decided to do it. And I'm so glad I did because the cast we assembled is unbelievable. Barry Sonnenfeld is a genius, and I will work with him on anything ever. He's great.
When you read the part of Ned, what was it that grabbed you?
What I loved about him is that he's someone who gives life. He's a good guy. He's a good-hearted person. He brings positivity and generosity to people. His life is complicated, and he lives a very sheltered, funny life, but he's got a gift. He's not one of these antiheroes who's going to destroy his life and everyone around him, you know? We're putting something out into the world that is a good thing.
Lots more from Lee, so---
The show is a romance, but it's a very non-traditional romance.
We'll never be able to touch! Chuck and Ned are soulmates, absolute soulmates. But they're also young people who are trying to figure out their life and the future, and of course they want to meet someone and settle down and have a real love life and a real sex life. But they just can't with each other.
What just killed me was the scene in the pilot where they're clasping their hands behind their backs because they can't touch each other.
Expect a moment like that every week — some kind of moment of "Oh, no, I wish they were together, but they're not!"
What are some of the factors that influence the kinds of roles you take?
Every part you get is like you get a great problem-solving mission. With The Good Shepherd it was a big complicated geopolitical problem to solve. With this one, it's a very personal love story. That's no less difficult, but it's different.
How did you prepare to be back on TV?
It's hard — TV is a very specific thing. But I was very clear-headed going into this. I think TV is a really interesting business. It's really, really interesting trying to do something that is appealing to as many people as possible. I think that's fascinating, and I think this [show] could do that.
I think Ned is one of the sweetest characters I've seen on TV.
Oh, Ned is so sweet. Barry's so funny — he's like, "Just be nice and charming!" And I'm like, "Oh no, but [Ned]'s dealing with blah blah blah," and he's like, "yeah, yeah, yeah, just smile and be nice and charming."
Are the pies real?
A lot of them are plastic.

Music impresario Lou Pearlman - who guided the early careers of Justin Timberlake and ’N Sync, the Backstreet Boys and Kingston homey Rich Cronin’s LFO - was a pervy predator who preyed on young boy-banders promising them fame and wealth, according to the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine.
“I mean, now I know what it’s like to be a chick,” Cronin told the magazine. “He was so touchy feely, always grabbing your shoulders, touching you, rubbing your abs. It was so obvious and disgusting. He definitely came at people. He came at me.”
Another local music manager, who worked with Pearlman in the past, told the Track that the sick-o Svengali would tell his pop proteges that they could “practice” on him.

Jane Carter, mother of former Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and his brother, Aaron, tells VF “Certain things happened and it almost destroyed our family. I tried to warn everyone. I tried to warn all the mothers.”
“I tried to expose him for what he was years ago,” Carter said. “The financial (scandal) is the least of his injustices.”
Cronin said he thinks Pearlman got into the music biz originally because “He wanted cute guys around him. This was an excuse.”
He said he believes that the manager never expected any of his acts to actually hit.
“Then lightning crazily struck and an empire was created,” he said. "It was all dumb luck.”
SOURCE: today's Boston Herald, which does not seem to realize Nick Carter is still in the Backstreet Boys.
From a separate article:
He helped launch the careers of some of the biggest boy-bands of the 1990s, but a new report by Vanity Fair hints that jailed music impresario Lou Pearlman had other motives for wanting to mentor the young singers.
( Collapse )
"None of these kids will ever admit anything happened," one attorney who has sued Pearlman in a contract dispute tells special correspondent Bryan Burrough. "They're all too ashamed, and if the truth came out it would ruin their careers."
"I tried to protect the kids," says a former publicist, Jay Marose. "You'd see Lou kind of moving in on one of them, and you'd just tell someone, 'Get that kid away from Lou before it's too late.' "
The November issue of Vanity Fair hits newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on Oct. 3 and nationally on Oct. 9

My thoughts: Sure, Jane Carter tried to expose him... all the way to the bank. Twice. And Steve Mooney and Jay Marose couldn't call the cops or some child advocacy group or something? These people fail at life utterly.
JOAQUIN PHOENIX shocked his co-star MARK WAHLBERG on the set of new movie WE OWN THE NIGHT - by mercilessly making fun of veteran actor ROBERT DUVALL. No subject was off limits for Phoenix when it came to mocking 76-year-old Duvall, including his baldness. Wahlberg says, "Every day I'm telling Joaquin, 'Hey, be quiet!' "He called Duvall a dinosaur, he said, 'Look at your head - it's peeling!' He was non-stop." And Duvall admits he got annoyed with Phoenix on a couple of occasions, although he still thinks the 32-year-old is a "great guy". Duvall says, "I got really ticked a couple of times."
Please, Marky Mark. I dont think Robert Duvall needs his sensitive feelings protected.
This makes me smile. I was raised in a family where teasing each other to death is how we show affection.
Derek Jeter Is Slipping
Gabrielle Union is Derek's latest conquest. Now don't get me wrong, she is cute, but serious, when we run down Derek's past conquests she is not on the same level. I am talking girls like Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, & Mariah Carey (when she was hot). Honestly Gabrielle hasn't really been hot since Bad Boys 2. But to each their own. I honestly don't care but I am a big Yankee fan and this better not affect any output during the playoffs. This guy's already bitching about a bad knee; I don't need him tearing or pulling anything while trying to conquer Gabrielle's ass. We Yankees fans have enough to worry about with A-Rod and his mental issues. So just stay on track, DJ!!!!
[ SOURCE ]
Am I alone in thinking Derek Jeter is NOT ALL THAT?? And looking worse by the day, judging by that pic of him. I for one think Gabrielle's a HUGE step up from the days when he was dating girls who were underage (Jordana Brewster, anyone?) and the likes of Screamin' Mimi...and I also wish this blogger dude had done an entire article on A-Rod's "mental issues", because that would be a hoot! Other than seeing him on the streets of Toronto with a hooker from Idaho several times over this summer, there hasn't been much noteworthy stuff goin' on with him lately... One of these Yankees needs to go ballistic or something & make the playoffs more interesting!

When OK! caught up with former boy-bander Ashley Parker Angel recently, the handsome singer, currently starring in the Broadway production of Hairspray, talked about his one-time tourmate, Britney Spears. “I honestly feel really bad for her situation,” he explains. “I like her and I think she has a really good heart, but I think she just got confused. I hope she gets help.”
Meanwhile, though Ashley's stint with Hairspray may be coming to an end on December 15, don’t expect the pop star turned actor to say goodbye to theater forever. “This opportunity has really made me feel like I want to pursue acting as well,” Ashley told OK! at the birthday party for Tony-winning producer Adam Epstein at NYC hotspot One Little West 12th. “I’ve never done it before and I’m having a lot of fun.”
And while the 26-year-old got his big break on reality show Making the Band and had a career resurgence in 2005 when MTV revisited his life with fiancée Tiffany Lynn in the series There & Back, Ashley tells OK! that the days of allowing a camera into his life are over. “I am a fan of reality television and I support it, but between the two shows, I’ve done around 70 episodes of reality TV. I think I’m done.”
Though his reality days are behind him, what lies ahead for Ashley is the reality of fatherhood, as his son Lyric has just entered his terrible twos. “He’s out of control,” the proud pop laughs to OK!. “He’s great, and he’s going to be a heartbreaker.”
Courteney Cox Arquette is looking radiant here at a press event for Kinerase skincare this last weekend. She has supposedly been using the product for over five years.

Connie Nielsen ("Gladiator") played the wife in Bier's version, speaking in her native Danish.
David Benioff ("The Kite Runner") is penning the remake. Relativity's Ryan Kavanaugh is producing alongside Michael De Luca and Joni Sighvatsson, with shooting scheduled to begin in early November.
Portman will star in the upcoming films "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium," "The Other Boleyn Girl" and "My Blueberry Nights."

Supahead: Darius (Eddie Winslow from Family Matters) and I are trying, but it’s really, really hard. He’s big. He’s big, I can barely take it in the right holes.
Wendy Williams: Is he bigger than my pink pen?

A friend of mine called me the other day, and asked me where Spencer get’s all his money. I didn’t have a clue…so I looked around online. I thought maybe he was a trust fund baby…but apparently not!

- Pratt “coproduced” Jenner’s short-lived reality series, Princes of Malibu, which chronicled the Jenner brothers’ pampered existence under the rule of their stepfather, shmaltz-rock producer David Foster—yes, the man who brought America Josh Groban and Michael Bublé is somehow involved in this mess.
- Spencer’s management company, Innovator Management, has about four clients, though it’s tough to tell as most of Pratt’s “companies” have MySpace pages without any other Web presence. The clients are, not surprisingly, Brody, Heidi (who is cutting an album soon under Spencer’s tutelage), David Foster, and The Princes of Malibu (DVD).
- Spencer is VP of Archangel L.A., a company which appears to make silver jewelry that retails at two stores in Los Angeles. The goods are not yet available for purchase (or really even to look at) online.
- He also has his hands in the music industry, working on 143 Records (David Foster’s label for Atlantic, natch), and the nebulous Precise Music Group, which has one artist, YaBoy, a rapper big on the L.A. underground mix tape scene.
- Spencer and Brody are both “VPs of 310 Creative,” a company that animates Web graphics and designs celebrity websites. Among their clients: Nicole Richie, David Foster, Ya Boy, and the band Korn.

Brandy's little brother, Ray-J, is currently working on a tell-all memoir called "Sex Machine" reports AOL Black Voices . In the memoir Ray-J will claim he's slept with over 1,000 women.
The 26-year-old has been linked to Lil' Kim, Whitney Houston, Karrine Steffans and he had that lil' sex tape with Kim Kardashian.
Ray-J will also claim he started getting sexy at the age of 10! His mother must be so proud!
Ray-J is definitely biting off of Karrine's style. He probably saw that her book with all her filthy sex stories was doing well, so he decided to do his own.
I've seen the dick and it definitely looks like it's had some damage. I mean that thing looks like it's been in a couple of ten car pile-ups. It's all swollen and shit. Nast.

Craig David returns. New single "Hot Stuff" samples David Bowie - Lets Dance, and its actually pretty good.
OK, so I've not seen any posts about this so far and I know there are a fair few Craig David fans (for those unfamiliar with him, he is a British emcee-turned-singer - Wikipedia here. I really enjoyed the single so I'm looking forward to this. Sorry if its already been posted.
And don't worry ONTD, Unbreakable will probably be their last album because it won't do well. The fans are all buying it, but no one else is. Everyone's just like, "umm, go away now!". Makes me sad :(
Danny Bonaduce is a felony suspect.
Last night, at the FOX Reality Channel Really Awards, Bonaduce jumped on stage, picked up "Survivor" star Jonny Fairplay and slammed him on his face, causing him to lose a few teeth.
Fairplay was taken to a nearby hospital, where police were called. TMZ cameras were rolling as the bloody reality star was loaded into an ambulance. Some jerk can be heard taunting the injured Fairplay, yelling the phrase "Team Bonaduce" as he got into the ride.
Bonaduce is named as the suspect in a felony battery report.
On The Adam Carolla radio show today, Bonaduce said he's had a thing against Fairplay ever since he pulled the famous "grandmother stunt" on Survivor, lying that she had died in order to get sympathy on the show.
Danny said he thought the show was over and he was leaving, and Fairplay was on the stage, asking the audience why he was booing him. Danny says, as he walked by, he said "They're booing him because they hate him."
Someone then asked Danny to go on stage and tell him that, which he says he did. Danny says he was off the first step of the stage when Fairplay suddenly ran at him, jumped on him and wrapped his legs around him.
Danny says he didn't know if Fairplay was joking. He then says he grabbed the butt of Fairplay's jeans and threw him over his head, not realizing how light he was. Danny says Fairplay face planted into one of the seats behind him.

A $1,000 prize was offered Tuesday night by WKQI-FM (95.5) radio DJ Big Boy for guessing when Britney Spears will commit suicide after she temporarily loses custody of her children today.
Big Boy's 95.5 personal page asks, "When will Britney end it?"
Spears will lose custody of her children today at noon, USA Today reports for documented drug and alcohol abuse. A hearing was scheduled today for more custody proceedings between Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline.
DJs on the station's "Mojo in the Morning" show apologized on Big Boy's behalf placing the blame on program director Dom Theodore for the poll's idea.
The executive producer of "Mojo in the Morning," Rachel Giordano, said Theodore is expected to give an official statement on Channel 95.5. at 7 tonight.
Mojo said he heard about the contest while he was driving with his children. He said, "I was disgusted and saddened. Remember, she is a mother."
DJs this morning read e-mails from listeners who said they were appalled and offended by the idea. The listeners cited the seriousness of suicide and the negativity of Big Boy's call-out on a station that is popular with college students.
According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, suicide is the third leading cause of death among teenagers and second among college students.
Channel 95.5 radio DJ Spike will be emcee for the "Out of the Darkness" suicide prevention walk at Kensington Park in Milford on Sunday. For information on the walk, go to http://mojo.channel955.com/pages/home.html.
All benefits will go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
On the morning show, Spike said, "Hopefully, maybe, our walk can balance this out."
The show can be heard on the site's podcast.
Spears has been spiraling downward since she and Federline split. She was photographed without underwear and appeared to be drunk and out-of-control. Then she shaved her head, beat a car with an umbrella and ended up spending a month in rehab.
In September, Spears kicked off the MTV Video Music Awards in a disjointed performance that was widely panned.
Monday night, after learning she would lose custody of her kids indefinitely, Spears showed up for a stay at a posh Beverly Hills hotel.
Her new single, "Gimme More," has climbed radio charts and she has a new album planned for a November release.

But when the crooner went to pay with his American Express Black Card, the clerk — who didn’t recognize Mayer — asked to see an ID, an eyewitness tells Us Weekly. After Mayer said, “I actually lost my ID and don’t have one,” the clerk “advised John he would not be able to buy anything.” Says the observer, “John was so embarrassed. Minka was smiling and giggling and rubbed his back in support.” Eventually, the clerk recognized him, approved the purchase and apologized profusely. Says the onlooker, “John and Minka laughed and said it was no big deal before they paid and left the store holding hands.”

Showtime’s “Dexter” returned with a vengeance Sunday, becoming the cabler’s first series to score more than 1 million viewers with a premiere seg.
Skein’s second-season opener snagged 1.09 million eyeballs at 9 p.m., a whopping 67% above the serial killer drama’s 2006 series premiere. More impressively, seg was up nearly 40% over the show’s 2006 season average of 624,000 viewers, according to Nielsen data.
“Dexter” did even better when the viewership from the 11 p.m. Sunday repeat is factored in. The encore drew 414,000 viewers, bringing the skein’s nightly total to 1.42 million viewers. Showtime is available in roughly 14 million homes, though the cabler opened its signal to tens of millions more consumers last weekend via a free preview promotion. That no doubt contributed to “Dexter’s” impressive opening perf.
Strong numbers for “Dexter” also boosted returning drama “Brotherhood.” It averaged 371,000 viewers at 10 p.m. Sunday --substantially higher than the skein’s season-one average of 207,000 viewers. Counting a midnight repeat, “Brotherhood” notched 485,000 viewers, doubling the tune-in for last year’s finale.
On the downside, “Brotherhood” lost a huge chunk of its “Dexter” lead-in, tumbling more than 60% from Showtime’s 9 p.m. numbers.
Cabler said a seven-minute break between the end of “Dexter” and the start of “Brotherhood” may have contributed to the mass exodus. This Sunday, cabler plans to make a seamless transition between the two shows.
She's been growing on me lately. The blonde hair always bothered me... so I'm thinking it's a good change :)
Rock claims Pam lied about miscarriage
5 minutes ago
Kid Rock claims Pamela Anderson lied about a miscarriage during their brief marriage last year.
Anderson lied while they were arguing about visiting her on the set of a movie in Canada, the 36-year-old rapper alleges in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.
"She's in Vancouver shooting a movie and I have Lakers seats on the floor, and I'm gonna go to the Lakers (basketball) game with my friend Jesse James," the 36-year-old rapper says.
"I'm like, `Baby, I got these tickets. I'll see you on the weekend there,' and that leads into her saying, `You don't care about me, blah blah blah,'" Rock says. "She finally comes up with this: `I just had a miscarriage' ... and hangs the phone up."
Rock, claiming he was unaware that Anderson was pregnant, says he chartered a plane and flew to Vancouver. "When I get there, she's partying at this restaurant, drinking champagne, jumping on the tables. I'm thinking, `That's a quick recovery from a miscarriage.'"
Last November, a spokeswoman for the former "Baywatch" star said Anderson had suffered a miscarriage. Later that month, Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, and Anderson filed for divorce, seeking to end their marriage of less than four months.
In response to the allegations, Anderson's publicist, Cindy Guagenti, referred The Associated Press to an e-mail that is quoted in the magazine's story.
"I hope his album does well," the 40-year-old actress says. "I hope he's happy in life. We were married for four months. If he has nothing nice to say about me, then please tell him to stop talking about me."
Last month, Anderson and Rick Salomon applied for — and were granted — a marriage license in Las Vegas, according to Clark County's Marriage License Bureau.
Rock's latest album, "Rock N Roll Jesus," is due out next Tuesday.

KELLY Clarkson has become this year's poster girl for record company versus artist. Her third album, My December, is the year's most discussed and analysed pop record.
It arrived surrounded by rumours of battles between Clarkson and her record company over the correct way to follow up the 11 million selling Breakaway.
However, Clarkson claims to be the one person not bothered by any of the fuss, misconceptions or rumours.
"I just laugh it off," Clarkson says.
"The weird and funny thing with this whole situation is that it's not that different a record. It's a bit harder than a normal pop record but it's still a pop record. The way some people were talking about it I'd think 'Have you listened to the record? It's not Guns N'Roses, people'."
Clarkson graciously addresses the whirlpool of rumours that greeted the arrival of My December.

You must have the most unique voice in that world.
Some people can’t sing and can just use their voice very uniquely. I was watching these clips on E! of the worst people singing the National Anthem and - what’s the dudes name from that rock group - the nigga with the big lips?
Steven Tyler? That’s the nigga with the big lips? That nigga’s like the worst ever! The secret - WHITE PEOPLE CAN’T SING UNLESS YOU’RE ROBIN THICKE!
He’s the only one?
I know they got more but I don’t feel like thinking right now. I just… I don’t care - fuck them!
Please tell me this dude did not clown on Steven Tyler. Sure, he looks like Mr. Potato Head or something, but hello, AEROSMITH. Wayne, stfu. Steven Tyler’s money is so long, he makes YOU look like a project baby. STOP! Steven Tyler don’t get out of bed for less than millions! Cheezy F. Crazy gets out of bed for some head and bowl of grits. NO RESPECT.
AND ROBIN THICKE? How ignorant is that comment! I’ve said it before and I will say it again, ROBIN THICKE IS NOT THE YT SAVIOR OF R&B. Michael McDonald will murk that a**. Hell, Michael Bolton ROFL.
Speaking of stress, let’s talk about the incident when the cops pulled you over after your show on July 22, 2007, at the Beacon Theater in New York.
When they locked me up in New York and they asked me about Jay-Z, 50 Cent, G Unit and no fucking gun or weed like they made it look like on TV? Ask me what I told them - Nigga, I’m from New Orleans! I will murder ya’ll up in this bitch! Fuck that, why would I murder a rapper?! I’m gonna listen to his shit on the way to go murder another nigga!
So when I murder my neighbor and his little dog for playing Mexican/Tejano music at 7 AM on a Saturday, I’m going to give the officer this paragraph on a paper with a picture of Weezy and the caption “Wayne murders ya’ll up in this bitch!” Hip-hop did it. Not me.
Don’t you call yourself that in a song?
Yeah, I said I’m a whore. I’m a whore. Whatever. And I live it to the fullest. I’m like Trey Songz, no homo.
Every picture of this nigga, he got his fucking shirt off! He’s looking at the camera like he’s looking at a hoe. I said, ya know what? Trey Songz don’t give a fuck - he be like, Fuck ya’ll nig*as! I’m eating, bwoy! Fuck how you think I look in this picture, your hoe love this picture! It’s her screensaver nig*a! When you call your hoe, my song play, fool! Holla! Trey Songz I fuck with you, you heard me?
Umm….HAHAHAHAHAHA. Trey Songz is Wayne’s hero. Not saying that was gay, but that sounded geigh. He ain’t mean it like that of course…but still. Where is dude’s muzzle? Screensaver though? That’s real suspect. Bwoy? *dead* He should have referenced Ray-J. That’s whoredom in male form for sure. Someone make Ray-J a crushed purple velvet leisure suit with a scarlet letter ASAP!
And finally, the pièce de résistance:
That’s funny. Is there anything else you want to share about your career so far?
I signed my contract at 11, I put out my first solo album at 15 and I’m 25 and I’ve been living in that ever since. I haven’t sold a brick. I haven’t had to see one unless I wanted to snort it!
So what are you about to do now, after the interview?
Yo, I forgot what we was doing! I forgot we was gonna go in the studio, Elz said he was gonna come through [Juelz Santana]. I dunno if he’s on his way.
Kids, I am writing my OWN pink slip. You’ll find it under your door with a big middle finger drawn on the envelope. CAUSE I QUIT THIS B-I-ETCH!
Some of the interviews…Wayne needs to go gargle with grill cleanser and just call it a wrap on this interview/feature LOL.
I love Wayne but dude is crazy as hell for these random comments though!
Let me just start off by saying that this Fox Reality Awards Show is a MESS!!!! This shit is like World War 3! It's like Amanda Lepore did herself with a rhinestone dildo and then came all over Boulevard 3 in Hollywood. This is the greatest awards show ever!

TMZ video will become an exhibit in the Britney/K-Fed custody fight.
As we first reported, one of the reasons L.A. County Court Commissioner Scott Gordon stripped Brit of custody was because she was driving her kids this past weekend without a valid California license -- a direct violation of the judge's order.
Turns out, Gordon found out about Britney's Malibu drive after TMZ posted the video this past weekend.
Celebrity lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan subpoenaed our video yesterday. We complied with the subpoena today by depositing it with the court. There's a hearing today at 1:30 PM, where Brit's lawyers will argue Britney's non-compliance was all a big misunderstanding.
Spears got her California license yesterday, so she is now free to drive to the fast food restaurant of her choice and has the blessing of the state of California.
Fresh off his birthday celebration in Vegas, Brody Jenner says there's more to what happened with Hills costar and former flame Lauren Conrad.
"There was a lot of things they didn't show," Jenner said of the multiple kisses he shared with Conrad when she surprised him at the party, which was the focus of the show’s latest episode. "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas."
Jenner remained coy about the possibility of a rekindled romance at Tuesday night's opening of the SKY360 Lounge in L.A. "I talk to her every day, it's just like any other friend," he told PEOPLE.
It was just one year ago that the reality stars were an official item. And, in March, Conrad told PEOPLE she remains friends with most of her exes – Jenner included.
Jenner is less friendly with his ex-girlfriend Nicole Richie, it seems. "I don't think she'd accept any baby gifts from me," he said of his childhood friend. "I think she'll be a great mom."
Am I the only person that thinks he's a pretty big douche? Not Spencer-big, but still...

coming to Rehoboth stage!
In less than a month, the sounds of car engines and seagulls will be temporarily replaced by smooth jazz and rhythm and blues.
The 18th Annual Rehoboth Autumn Jazz Festival is set to get under way on Wednesday, Oct. 10, and so far ticket sales have been brisk, Delaware Celebration of Jazz President Dennis Santangini said.
The event will kick off with the opening Mardi Gras party, starting at 6:30 p.m. The party will feature a performance by The Miracles with special guest Claudette Robinson, as well as the Best Taste of Rehoboth contest. Besides chicken, crabmeat and dessert tasting has also been added, Santangini said. For the crabmeat tasting, restaurants will have to come up with a signature taste from the same ingredients. Santangini said 12 restaurants have signed up so far for the crabmeat tasting, while three have signed on for the dessert tasting.
The biggest names performing at this year’s festival will be Oscar-nominated actress and singer Queen Latifah and Grammy-award-winning singer Dionne Warwick. Latifah will be performing at 9 p.m., Friday, Oct. 12, at the Rehoboth Convention Center. She will be performing songs from her newest jazz album, “Trav’lin’ Light.”

Sarah Silverman may make it a habit to skewer stars like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears – but the comic has some kind words for the hotel heiress, who was grilled by David Letterman on Friday's Late Show.
"I thought she handled herself well," Silverman, 36, tells USA Today.
But Silverman also has praise for the host, who questioned Hilton about her jail stint for more than six uncomfortable minutes.
"I love Dave. The old Letterman was back a little bit," she says. "He was being a hilarious pain. I thought it was like old, classic Dave."
Silverman herself told an off-color joke about Hilton's jail sentence during the June's MTV Movie Awards. (She later apologized.)
As for Spears, whom Silverman made fun of during the MTV VMA's last month, (she called the singer's sons "the most adorable mistakes"), Silverman is unapologetic.
"My instinct is to answer honestly. People keep saying I'm still talking about it, but I'm not the one bringing it up. I'm over it," she says. "I loved the jokes."
Asked if she has spoken to Spears, she quips, "We're not hanging out like we used to."
Silverman also addresses the rumor that Angelina Jolie could appear on The Sarah Silverman Program, which kicks off its second season Wednesday on Comedy Central.
"It's suddenly become the biggest question," Silverman says. "When we were writing, we met her. She was shooting a commercial for Japan on the lot, and she came over and said she liked the show. She was so nice. We were so star-struck."
Adds Silverman, "She intimated that she'd be open to being on the show if we think of a funny idea. Chances are, when we get back to her, she'd be saving an African country. Hopefully she'll have her priorities straight and do our show instead."
I think Sarah Silverman is hilarious, even if she did go a bit too far with the Britney jokes. If you don't agree, you will after watching "Jesus is Magic." And props to Letterman for that Paris interview... "Someone you met in prison?"
Warner Bros has released a few new photos (most uneventful) from the upcoming adaptation of I Am Legend starring Will Smith (movie trailer).
Rob Cohen has published a few new photos from the set of The Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, including one of Maria Bello as the new Evelyn (yuck, where is Rachel!?).
I wrote earlier today that I actually enjoyed the firs Fast and the Furious film (a comment I’m sure to get a lot of flack for), also a Cohen project. I also very much had fun in the first Mummy film, but where can this series go? It’s basically an Indiana Jones knock off with a less talented cast, crew and oh yeah, a sad supernatural Mummy character, which in the third film is played by Jet Li (yes, that Jet Li).
And Cohen’s filmography has suffered in recent years (xXx, Stealth). I keep having to remind myself that Cohen once made Dragonheart. So I don’t have much faith in The Mummy 3, but in this case I hope I’m proved wrong.
I have recently gotten the criticism that I’ve been far too negative. But the truth is I go into every screening wanting to love the movie, wanting to be surprised. And The Mummy 3 is the perfect example of this. I want it to be fun and magical, but magical and fun isn’t a realistic expectation.
The 'Mean Girls' star - who has been receiving treatment for drug and alcohol addiction at Utah's Cirque Lodge for two months - was said to have completed her programme last week but it has been claimed she was forced to stay on after testing positive for cocaine.
Insiders also alleged she has been drinking alcohol and mixing diet pills with prescription anti-anxiety medication in a bid to get high.
A source told Australia's New Weekly magazine: "I think she'll take whatever pills they allow her. It's obvious to me she's high because she acts loopy and can't seem to walk in a straight line!"
Another insider said: "She had a friend sneak vodka in a water bottle into one of the Alcoholics Anonymous meetings she goes to. Everyone wants her to be their friend, so they'll do anything for her.
"She smells like booze, and the staff do nothing about it.
"I asked her if she had any intention of being sober and she looked at me like I was crazy. She's still doing whatever she wants."
Lindsay, 21, is due to serve the one-day jail sentence she received for her DUI (driving under the influence) conviction in May, and was scheduled to start shooting a movie in mid-October.
The actress' father Michael Lohan joined her at the facility yesterday for a five-day retreat in the Utah mountains to rebuild their relationship.

Exciting news! Filming for High School Musical 3 begins in January, according to OK! magazine.
“The script is getting written — it starts in January, and it’s a feature film,” HSM’s Jason (Ryne Sanborn, 18) said at the world premiere of High School Musical: The Ice Tour in NYC on Sept. 29. “[But] I haven’t gotten a call saying, ‘We want you to do it.’”
Olesya Rulin, 21, aka piano player Kelsi, added, “It if happens, I’ll be ecstatic to be in the third one.”
OK! also reports, “After the Vanessa Hudgens nude photo scandal, and the rising profile of series star Zac Efron, Kaycee Stroh, 23, who plays Martha, hopes the cast remains the same. ‘Our fingers are crossed because we love each other. The chemistry’s great with the 10 of us.’”
According to Life & Style, Zac is being offered $3.25 million dollars to star in HSM3 and Vanessa, a measly $1.3 million dollars. Chump change, people!
According to IMDB, two of the film’s working titles are High School Musical 3: Gradu-Dancin and Haunted High School Musical. Do you like any of those titles?
DJ Samantha Ronson and her brother Mark looked cool as camels as they lit up to check out of Hyde last night, and loaded into Sammy's Porsche, only to have a boisterous bystander burst their snobby bubble by yelling, "Who are you!"

Word on the street is that Britney may return to Crossroads Centre at Antigua (where she was for about 24 hours back in February). Rumor or reality? (I'm guessing it's total rumor.)
We're working on the story and will update you and soon as we have more information.
She better for her own good!
Supposedly, the Gimme More video has leaked so everyone keep their eyes open and try finding it.

Their sixth album, "Unbreakable," is about to come out Oct. 30, but recent headlines have been overshadowing Backstreet Boys' long-awaited comeback.
The immensely popular boy-band from the 1990s and early 2000s hit the scene when teen stars were reclaiming the lime light and are contemporaries of 'NSync, Christina Aguilera, and, yes, the embattled former queen of them all, Britney Spears.
Spears recently had her children taken away from her by a judge who called her a habitual drug user. They are now staying with their father and her ex-husband, Kevin Federline.
Backstreet Boys' A.J. McLean has been sober for five years but was addicted to drugs until the most important people in his life, what McLean calls his "unit" staged an intervention. He then entered rehab. He said what Spears needs most is support and tough love from the people in her life.
"I think her unit is not as tight and there's not as many people who are looking out for her best interest unfortunately," McLean, 29, told The ShowBuzz. "You just have to have a really great support group and you have to love yourself first." that made me lol. idk.
On the upside, McLean says the only way around a problem like drug addiction is through it, and that means the addict must face the harsh realities of how far the she has fallen. The latest issues in Spears' life many force her to do so, he said.
"With all that's happened as of recent, you know losing custody, this, that and the other, I think, you know, hopefully, unfortunately, this is a very drastic thing for someone to have to go through, but I think, hopefully, this will give her a wakeup call, and time to really kind of grow and get herself together and get her head on straight."
While Spears is battling her own issues, demons from the past seem to be coming back to haunt the Backstreet Boys. An article from the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair alleges that Lou Pearlman, the mastermind behind groups like 'NSync, Backstreet Boys and LFO, could have behaved in a sexually inappropriate manner with his clients, including the Backstreet Boys youngest member, Nick Carter.
In the article, his mother says that she tried to warn other parents that something inappropriate was going on and the things that happened nearly destroyed her family. When asked about the Vanity Fair story, Carter said he didn't want to comment, but acknowledged the issue.
"This is something that's been going on for years, talks and allegations," he said. "It's kinda old news, you know what I mean? So, really, there's no comment on the issue."

BRITNEY SPEARS’ aunt last night admitted her family fear they will “turn on the TV and find out she is dead”.
Chanda McGovern told of her heartache at watching the former pop princess self-destruct. And she fears the next step will be a drugs overdose.
Chanda confessed that her family have been pleading for Britney to take a break from LA and come back to her hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana.
She said: “We are very worried that things are going to spiral out of control.
“Instead of her turning to her family she is going to turn to the friends she has been hanging with — and the partying and drugs.
“And whether it be intentionally or accidental, there may be a drugs overdose.

Chris Brown is apparently in a beef with The-Dream, who penned J. Holiday's hit, "Bed". In the interview, The-Dream, who is the force behind Rihanna's summer hit, "Umbrella" and his own current single, "Shawty is a Ten," calls Brown out, vowing to never work with the hearthrob again. Trouble began brewing between the two when the Dream-penned J. Holiday hit, "Bed," was being considered for Brown.
"The track, which was considered for Chris Brown--he thought it was his--but it was my record and I decided to give it up to J. Holiday," Dream recalled. "Chris said the record won't be No. 1 unless he's on it. I bet someone $500,000 that it would go to No. 1 and I collected my money last week." The song went on to spend three weeks atop Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Despite the fact that he eventually won his bet, Dream says Brown's comments left a dirty taste in his mouth. "He said the wrong thing to me. He has a track from me now that I was paid for already and I want to give him his money back," he declares. "At the end of the day, I'm big on principle and loyalty. Put that to bed."
Kevin Federline will retain custody of his children and Britney will get monitored visitation -- this after a court hearing lasting nearly three hours.
There's another hearing on October 26.
The Spears- Federline court hearing has just concluded, and it looks like things are looking good for Fed-ex. The judge has ordered that both parties -- Britney that means YOU -- must appear at the next hearing on October 26.
Kevin was whisked out of the courtroom by bodyguards, but not before flashing a smile to reporters outside. What exactly happened inside we don't know, but his attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, is scheduled to give a quick statement any minute.
UPDATE: A smiling Kevin Federline has just walked out of the courtroom. Stay tuned!
Kevin Federline has arrived at the Los Angeles County Courthouse for today's custody hearing.
No Britney in sight.
He is wearing a blue suit, white shirt and (wait for it) a patch on his right eye. AND he's wearing sunglasses. Not kidding.
Attorneys for Britney Spears and Kevin Federline – as well as Federline himself, sporting an eyepatch – arrived in a Los Angeles courtroom Wednesday for the next round in the ex-couple's bitter custody battle over their two children.
"If the judge accepts Spears's explanation today as to why his orders weren't fulfilled," says veteran family attorney Neal Raymond Hersh, "there's a chance that 50-50 custody will be reinstated – but it's a longshot."
I'll just keep adding updates
Word on the web is that she is not attending this hearing because she is checking into a rehab.
And just for fun:
Warner Bros. Pictures has provided ComingSoon.net with a first look at the new poster for Roland Emmerich's 10,000 B.C., hitting theaters on March 7.
It was a time when man and beast were untamed and the mighty mammoth roamed the earth. A time when ideas and beliefs were born that forever shaped mankind. 10,000 B.C. follows a young hunter (Steven Strait) on his quest to lead an army across a vast desert, battling saber tooth tigers and prehistoric predators as he unearths a lost civilization and attempts to rescue the woman he loves (Camilla Belle) from an evil warlord determined to possess her.

Lindsay Lohan is still in rehab and from the looks of things she is not going anywhere any time soon. She was seen getting a jumpstart on her Halloween plans by picking out a pumpkin. The girl is always on top of the latest must have trend. We know LL is a huge fan of dressing up for Halloween but we're thinking she'll be celebrating very differently this year. It feels like she's been recovering forever in Utah but that's a good thing. Daddy Michael Lohan has even arrived for a second visit of healing. Perhaps they'll get all nostalgic and carve her pumpkin like the good old days. Whatever it takes, we're all for LL's sober fun new lifestyle - even if it includes creepy daddy.

Pamela Anderson is addressing rumors that she is pregnant on her Web site.
Pam, who is already a mom to two sons, posted today in her online diary: "Not pregnant. Just very happy. Started ozone therapy. Healthy as can be. Very exciting."
Last weekend, Pam applied for a marriage license with her beau, Rick Salomon.
I hope she stays not-pregnant. At the risk of sounding naive, does anyone know how having Hepatitis C can affect a woman's pregnancy?
P.S. - Her statement sounds like it came out of the Dina Lohan/Billy Bush diaries.

Isaac Hanson hospitalized for pulmonary embolism.
Wednesday night’s homecoming show for Tulsa pop act Hanson at Cain’s Ballroom has been indefinitely postponed, according to an email from Debbie Jones, regional manager for ticket outlet Gettix.net, which handles ticket sales for the venue.
Eldest Hanson bandmember, Isaac Hanson, was receiving treatment at an area hospital earlier today for an undetermined ailment, said Ken Philips, the band’s publicity manager.
“Tonight’s show is definitely cancelled,” he said in a phone call to the Tulsa World early Wednesday afternoon.
“There are no results yet” from tests, but Philips did say that Isaac Hanson was admitted to the hospital earlier today with severe shoulder and chest pain. “This could be serious, but nobody knows just yet,” he added. “We are hoping for the best.
“We will be making a public announcement with more details when we get them later this afternoon,” he said.
While the concert is off, there will be a show Wednesday night.
Hanson will offer a free, all-ages fan gathering and DVD screening at 6 p.m. at the Blank Slate, First Street and Elgin Avenue. In addition to viewing Hanson's latest DVD, two bands, Locksley and the Meerkats will play for those assembled.
Zac and Taylor Hanson took part in a one-mile walk Wednesday afternoon from the front doors of Cain’s Ballroom, 423 North Main Street.
The walk -- designed to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and poverty in Africa -- attracted thousands of Hanson fans downtown Wednesday.
Meanwhile, a new show date is pending, and no refunds will be offered at this time, according to Jones’ email.
It is unknown at this time if Isaac Hanson’s illness will force postponement of other shows on Hanson’s nation-wide “The Walk” tour.
TMZ is reporting that he has a pulmonary embolism: http://www.tmz.com/2007/10/03/eldest-hanson-hospitalized/
Kid Rock is giving his last interview on Pamela Anderson and he’s showing no mercy. In Rolling Stone's Hot Issue, the rocker takes his 40-year-old ex-wife to task, slamming everything from her appearance (while watching the Emmy awards, Rock points at Helen Mirren, 62, and cracked “Hey, is that Pam?”) to her claims that she miscarried while filming Blonde and Blonder in Canada earlier this year.
“She finally comes up with this: ‘I just had a miscarriage and you don’t even give a f—k,’ and hangs up the phone,” he tells the magazine. “Being the dumb f—k I am, I charter a $60,000 plane and fly to Vancouver. When I get there, she’s partying at this restaurant, drinking champagne, jumping on the tables. I’m thinking, ‘That’s a quick recovery from a miscarriage.’”
So what really happened during his scuffle with Tommy Lee at the MTV Movie Awards? Read the whole story in the new issue of Rolling Stone, on newsstands this week. In the meantime, see interview excerpts below…
On punching Tommy Lee at the MTV VMAs:
“I don’t got big guns, but I know how to throw a punch...If I knew how much press this was gonna get, I would’ve come back with a left.”
On what was going through his head when he punched Lee:
“I was like, ‘That’s it! He knows how much he has disrespected me through the years, and I’d told him he had it coming. I was left with no choice…I was going to be a b-tch or be a man. And I’m not a bitch. Never have been.”
On ending his relationship with model May Andersen:
“I don’t want any of that ‘I love you, I love you too, where have you been, you didn’t call me, you didn’t care’ bullshit. I’ve moved on, and the stars have aligned. Everything in my life is perfect.”
On meeting President Bush in 2004:
“When I first joined a band, I just wanted to make some good tunes, get some p-ssy and buy a new car. But I got to go meet the president, and he slaps me a high-five while I’m having a Jim Beam and Coke with Rumsfeld.”
On his motto:
“I surround myself with good people. That’s the only motto I have in life: Don’t hang out with a-sholes, period.”
On being rich:
“Oh, my kid’s grandchildren are set for life. But I also tell my son, ‘You see how your dad is, if you think any of this is going to get left behind, you’re nuts, because I’m going out with a bang, buddy.’”
On running away from home during high school:
“I just wanted to be were the action was. I didn’t want to be at home, picking apples in the orchard, I wanted to sell dope on the streets, make my money and go buy Paid in Full so I could spin it at the basement party that weekend.”
On his son, Bob Jr. moving to Malibu after Rock and Anderson were married:
“The first day at Malibu High School, I pick him up and I’m a little worried about him. I know it’s going to be a culture shock for him, completely different from Michigan. I was like, ‘Hey, how was school?’ And he’s like, ‘It stinks, it stinks, I hate it! All these kids do here is ride skateboards and do drugs.’ So I told him, ‘Hey, look at me! Stay off the f—kin’ skateboards!”

A man who has been away from Britain for 13 years has returned home and will finish his epic adventure on 6 October where he began it on 12 July 1994, aged 26, at the Meridian Line in Greenwich.
Jason Lewis, now 40, travelled the globe using human power alone in kayaks, mountain bikes, in-line skates and a pedal boat.
He spent nine months laid up in Colorado, US, after breaking both of his legs in a car crash.
Most of the lengthy trip was funded by over 60 companies, but some funds were donated by individuals – including Ewan McGregor, whom Lewis met on a sand dune in Sudan.
Check out his wiki for the deets of his adventures.

Lindsay Lohan has been in rehab for more than two months, but Frankie Muniz is fuming. The actress “is going to come back an even bigger celebrity than she ever was — and that sucks!” the Malcolm in the Middle star turned race-car driver said at Us’s Hot Hollywood party on September 26. “Her last four movies have failed miserably, but she’s still going to have a $10 million paycheck.”
Muniz, 21, puts the blame on the very Hollywood machine that made him and Lohan child stars. “As a young actor, you have to mature very fast in an adult business...and there aren’t enough people who say ‘no,’ ” he says, adding, “When Lindsay was pulled over for the second time for a DUI, nobody said, ‘I’ll never work with her again.’ It’s ridiculous to me.”
Ugh, Frankie... go flip another house or go through puberty or something.

Miley Cyrus' stepmother has blasted hurtful internet reports that the teenager is pregnant, revealing the rumor left the TV star/singer in tears.
A callous hacker reworked a J-14 magazine article online to suggest Cyrus was with child. He even doctored her quotes to make it look like she was apologizing to fans for letting them down - and she planned to keep her baby.
Cyrus has maintained a bright outlook as she addressed the reports, but now admits she was devastated. She says, "As much as I wanna say it didn't effect me, it really hurt my feelings."
And her stepmom Leticia reveals the fake gossip upset the entire Cyrus family. She explains, "She screamed and was crying. She was very upset which made me more infuriated. She has a purity ring and we're really strong in the belief of being pure until marriage. It was really hard for our family."
J-14 officials have since condemned the Internet tampering that led to the false report.
Computers and photographs for director Steven Spielberg's upcoming fourth "Indiana Jones" film were stolen, and DreamWorks Pictures SKG has asked local law enforcement to investigate, a studio spokeswoman said.
"An investigation is being conducted by law enforcement," said Kristin Stark, a spokeswoman for DreamWorks.
Stark declined to say where and when the theft took place. Officials from the Los Angeles Police Department, the FBI and the Sheriff's Department could not immediately confirm that they were investigating.
Marvin Levy, Spielberg's spokesman, said the director was concerned that the thieves might be trying to sell the materials.
"We want to warn the media that anything that is offered is stolen property," Levy said. "We know it is out there."
He said that he didn't know specifics about the crime but that he believed it had occurred fairly recently.
Stark said the stolen items contained "confidential and proprietary materials" related to the movie, which is considered a potential blockbuster for next summer. There is much anticipation about the film, which will hit the big screen 19 years after the last installment in the series. The movie stars Harrison Ford, Shia LaBeouf and Cate Blanchett.
Lindsay Lohan is ready to give it the old college try. The rehabbing actress is researching universities in hopes of completing a degree in Psychology after completing her third stint in detox.
“Despite what so many people think, Lindsay is an incredibly smart girl and always wanted to have that college experience,” says a Fox News source. “She’s looked into a few institutions on the east coast and will most likely major in something like psychology. At this stage, NYU is a hot favorite.”
The Spears-Federline court hearing has just concluded, and it looks like things are looking good for Fed-Ex. The judge has ordered that both parties -- Britney that means YOU -- must appear at the next hearing on October 26.
Kevin was whisked out of the courtroom by bodyguards, but not before flashing a smile to reporters outside. What exactly happened inside we don't know, but his attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, is scheduled to give a quick statement any minute.
Looks like she didn't show up today after all...
UPDATE: K-FED RETAINS CUSTODY; BRIT GETS MONITORED VISITATION
TMZ says: "Kevin Federline will retain custody of his children and Britney will get monitored visitation -- this after a court hearing lasting nearly three hours. K-Fed's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan says both side presented evidence at today's hearing. He would not say exactly what happened, but he hinted that the judge would make an order soon."
Update 2: Rumors are circulating that Britney will soon enter the Crossroads Rehabilitation Center in Antigua (it's the one Eric Clapton started), the same facility that she checked into and out of within 24 hours back in February. Once I have a reliable source I will link it.
Update 3: TMZ says that K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, called today's ruling "justified." They also report that Britney definitely was not there, and that they just got a shot of her putting gas in her SUV at a Shell Station in the San Fernando Valley.
Update 4: CLICK HERE for the article on Britney possibly re-entering rehab this weekend.
Update 5: TMZ is confirming that Britney has been ordered to appear for the hearing on October 26: "TMZ has learned L.A. County Commissioner Scott Gordon has ordered Britney and K-Fed to court at the next hearing, set for October 26.We've learned on Monday, Commissioner Gordon said he would not order the parties to court, but made it clear that it would be a good idea for them to show. Sources say Britney's lawyer, Sorrell Trope, asked Britney to show but she wouldn't. Kevin showed up, along with his lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan. It was the first appearance in court by either one. Britney spent some of her afternoon at a Shell gas station in the San Fernando Valley. Britney's lawyer argued that the ruling on Monday was unfair and he asked to reinstate the 50/50 custody arrangement. The judge declined to do it."
Update 6: Here is a picture of Britney, apparently taken this afternoon by TMZ (possibly during the court hearing). It's been up for a bit but I didn't know if it was new or not until now (they showed video of it on "Larry King Live" just now and said it was from today, and yes, she's smiling/laughing in the video). I know a lot of you are experiencing "Britney burnout" and I apologize, but I know that there are also people who want any tidbit they can get:
Update 7: TMZ reports that Britney is currently holed up at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons: "TMZ cameras caught Brit and cousin Alli Sims going into the extravagant Beverly Hills Four Seasons Hotel around 6:15 PM PST. An army of photogs trailed behind Britney, who drove her dinged up white Mercedes from her Hollywood Hills mansion following a day filled with gas stations, coffee shops and photo ops."
Update 8: MTV News obtained the following statement from Jive Records: “It’s not Jive’s place to fashion a public-relations campaign with respect to Britney’s personal issues, but Jive does care about her and does support her. We’re not pointing fingers — because the media and the paparazzi wouldn’t exist if there weren’t an appetite for it. But there’s no question that when you have someone at this level of celebrity, they become like cartoons or soap-opera characters, and we forget that they’re human beings. People say that’s the trade you make, that you have to give up your privacy or the ability to lead a normal life, but sometimes you make that bargain before you realize what it entails and it’s too late. Britney’s a grown woman, and she makes her own choices, and we respect that. But she’s been at a disadvantage [without a consistent team], and obviously that makes it harder to cope.”

I can't get enough of him and his brother.
About six months ago, I joined the Holly Madison fanclub after reading that "Bunny Tales" book, because frankly, I was intrigued as hell. The only real upside to paying money every month to be in her fanclub, is the fact that she has a weekly chat every Tuesday. The questions she recieves are usually completely general and boring. So the other day (last tuesday, actually), I decided to ask if she knew about ONTD.
( Collapse )
EDIT: For those of you who are like "LOLWTF you told her we were nice?!" I invite you to find one point in that conversation where I said "The people at ONTD are nice..."
Chill, my bbs.

The rumors cited Sims being spotted transporting clothes as a possible indication that she had quit -- our sources say that she simply had clothes in her car to transport them into town.
Stay tuned for more details as they develop on Britney's custody hearing that is ongoing at this time.
I don't know if Chris Matthews qualifies as a celebrity, but damnit, Jon lays the smackdown SO HARD and is simultaneously SO ADORABLE-- he literally becomes a 12-year-old girl at the end-- that it's pretty much required viewing.
EDIT: For those who feel sorry for Chris, it should be known that he's a notorious sexist asshole. He is paid to abuse his guests and I know I was jazzed to see him receive a little comeuppance. So, save your tears for Winehouse, okay?
After a whirlwind week of drama for Britney Spears, OK! has learned exclusively that, in an attempt to earn back custody of her children, the pop princess may be checking into rehab at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Centre in Antigua, over the weekend.
According to a pal of the 25-year-old pop star, Brit is planning on checking into rehab this Saturday. "Britney's team has been working closely with her attorneys to figure out a way to get the babies back from Kevin," the friend tells OK!, "She's surrendering herself to rehab for treatment of depression and alcohol so that there's no questioning if she is drinking or missing any future tests."
Brit's friend says, "She's got to pull her life together or else she'll lose the kids for good. She will do whatever her legal team and those closest to her thinks is best if it means she gets Preston and Jayden back. She's getting the help she needs and everyone is hoping she goes through with it this time."
However, Brit's cousin (and former roommate) Alli Sims has gone on the record saying Britney is not going to be checking in anytime soon.
Stay tuned as things develop.
LOL at the "pal" calling SPF "Preston."
An old and trusted scooper named Tailgunner Joe has just dropped some info into my lap, and after taking a spin around Google, I'm convinced it's news: James Wong, formerly of The X-Files and the man behind Final Destination and The One, is writing and directing the live action version of Dragon Ball, which is going to go into production in Canada this November.
Included with the scoop was this casting breakdown; I know jack nor shit about Dragon Ball (is there supposed to be a Z in there?) or the characters, so it's up to you to figure out if what Wong et al are looking for fit the anime bill.
This is going to be so funny no matter how optimistic you are. I used to stay up late and watch this show every night. IMDB says it'll be out 2010.
X17 scores again! We'll be bringing you XCLUSIVE video and pix of K-Fed (puffing away on a ciggy) at a local restaurant - we're with him right now! - after his big day in court. You'll soon be able to see how he's reacting to all this - not to mention a close-up of that eye patch!
We'll also be reporting on how Britney spent her day. Don't worry, she's a fighter!
Sorry it's taking soo long everyone! I didn't realize just how much of the day x17 photographers spend with their heads up Britney's ass.

The 10 Most Exciting Artists Right Now
Who She Is This Washington, D.C., native is a seductive mix of Nina Simone and Alicia Keys. Last year, Smith, 29, dropped her indie debut, For Lovers, Dreamers & Me, to critical acclaim but weak sales. She'll rerelease the disc this month on her new label, Epic. ''[We're] just freshening it up a little bit,'' she says, ''because a lot of people really never heard it.''
Why She's Exciting The lanky Smith may look delicate, but she has the pipes of a true blues chanteuse, as evidenced on tracks like the single ''New Religion.'' Childhood trips to her grandma's farm in Georgia helped mold her husky, emotional sound. Says Smith, who's already recording a follow-up CD in Hawaii: ''I'm a black woman, and I essentially grew up in the South, so my voice is colored that way. No pun intended.'' — Tim Stack

ABC has been struck by Cupid's arrow again.
Net has pacted with scribe Rob Thomas ("Veronica Mars") to develop a new version of "Cupid," the short-lived but well-regarded Jeremy Piven starrer about a man who thinks he's been sent to earth by Zeus to help out romantically challenged souls. The project is one of two scripts Thomas has in the works via a just-inked one-year development deal with ABC Studios.

I watched it but it's been almost 10 years. I have grieved and moved on. But good for RT, I guess. I give it three episodes before ABC cancels it again.

Nicole Richie will not be marrying her rocker lover Joel Madden next week - because the Good Charlotte singer will be on tour in Australia, according to a U.S. tabloid report. Last week (30Sep07), TMZ.com claimed the couple was planning to exchange vows on 13 October (07) in Laguna, California, and even named the wedding planners allegedly organising the intimate ceremony.
But Good Charlotte are scheduled to play at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on the alleged wedding date, and have further dates set in the country until 17 October (07). A source tells Us Weekly, "We are all laughing about it. The tour is still on and they have no marriage plans yet." And wedding organiser Lorraine Keseloff also denied her involvement in the Madden/Richie union. She says, "I have no idea how this all got started. It's been the most bizarre weekend. It's all completely false."

Nick Cannon and Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks have called off their engagement and split up, Ebanks's rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
"Selita and Nick are taking a break to focus on their careers but still very much love each other and remain the best of friends," says her rep, Melissa Raubvogel.
The breakup comes just five months after the Drumline actor made a proposal that lit up New York's Times Square – literally – as he asked Ebanks to marry him with the help of a jumbotron.
By August, Cannon, 26, was more measured when it came to nailing down wedding details, telling PEOPLE, "We haven't really talked about a lot of that stuff. You've got to take it slow."
As for Ebanks, 24, she said earlier in the summer that the pair had some fundamental differences between their ideal ceremony. "He's all about the bling and having a big wedding. Me? I'm all about the courthouse."
