MTV: "Half-Blood Prince" (one of) the Most Anticipated Films of 2008



Harry's going to kiss Ginny! Ron's going to get an intimate whiff of Lavender Brown! Somebody really, really important will die! Although loyalists already know the major "Prince" plot points, all eyes are on director David Yates as he attempts to bring them to life while matching the book's emotional impact. Last year's "Order of the Phoenix" gave us darker imagery and dramatically heftier acting from the leads. Now, with the magical series winding down, could "Prince" be the film that finally stirs up Oscar buzz for Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and/or Emma Watson? With enormous sets like the underground cave that houses one of Voldemort's Horcruxes, and new characters that include Jim Broadbent's enigmatic potion master, Horace Slughorn, Yates certainly has his work cut out for him. If only there were a spell that could transport us to November.- MTV

"Blind" item

Try to guess the newly minted movie starlet whose scathing remarks about her own character in a very popular recent film probably just cost her a nomination for a major award. How's that? Get this: The ballots for the prize were dropped in the mail around the same time the publication containing her rant hit newsstands. And from what I hear, voters figured, if she wasn't going to support what she did, why should they?

It's so obviously Katherine Heigl it's not even funny. That's what she gets.

Kate Bosworth for Calvin Klein SS08

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

SHOWS ARE WORTH GOING TO AFTER ALL: What does turning up at a fashion show get an actress beyond a free dress, glass of Champagne and gift bag? Well, maybe an ad campaign — just ask Kate Bosworth, who landed the job for Calvin Klein Jeans after she attended the spring show for Collection in New York in September and cohosted the postshow dinner for Francisco Costa. "She's so loyal," said Malcolm Carfrae, senior vice president, global communications. "After the show, she came and met with virtually everyone [at Calvin Klein]."

For her part, Bosworth said that "to be featured in a Calvin Klein Jeans campaign, with its history of iconic imagery, is very exciting for me." While the actress appears regionally in China for Coach, this is her first global campaign.

The images, shot by David Sims in New York, represent a return to a "clean, pure and simple all-American" look, said Carfrae, a departure from last season with Jamie Burke, who was decidedly more edgy and gritty. Bosworth is currently filming "21" and apparently will be profiled in the February issue of Vogue. The ads break in the February issues of major fashion titles.

Joaquin's acceptance "speech" at the People's Choice Awards.

So, it was a night to remember ... or was it?

You tell me ... Although there was no red carpet, no camera's flashing, no big stars waving to their fans and no live show, there was a live broadcast from an empty studio and Queen Latifa walking around! How can you forget something like that?!
In all cases, the 34th People's Choice Awards managed to carry on despite the writers' strike and as Queen Latifa put it: "I know this show's a little different than last time. But we have what's important – you, the people, and all your favorites all night long."
So, who were the big winners of the night?
Johnny Depp and Reese Witherspoon and Justin Timberlake lead the winners.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I can't leave out that there were actually pre-recorded acceptance speeches! My favorite was Joaquin Phoenix's speech ... which was a very quiet one!
Phoenix won Favorite Leading Man and he flipped through cue cards rather than actually speaking. "I'm speechless without the writers. Seriously. But in my own quiet way, I want to thank the millions of fans that voted for me for favorite leading man."


Does anyone have a video of this? Joaquin is my forever lover.

Del Toro makes another 'Potter' pitch



Somebody at Warner Brothers please get on the phone with this guy. Just two months after talking “Harry Potter” with MTV News from Budapest, director Guillermo del Toro was back stateside making another pitch to helm the series seventh installment, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”

I’m definitely interested,” he insisted, “now that the movies have grown darker. They have a contrast between the gloomy existence of the kid and the world he’s exposed to. They have evolved into a really nice universe.”

The deathstick, a wand of destiny which makes its bearer unbeatable. A resurrection stone which enables the one who wields it to visit with the dead. A trip to the afterlife and a final duel which makes Return of the Jedi look like kindergarten cops and robbers. Indeed, given all the new elements of the “Harry Potter” universe introduced in “Hallows,” there’s little doubt that it would be right in del Toro’s wheelhouse – especially after the visionary “Pan’s Labyrinth” cemented him as the master of fairy-tales that cross over from children to adults.

After reading the seventh novel himself, del Toro can’t help but nod his head in agreement.

“I got [’Deathly Hallows’] for my daughter and she was like ‘When are you going to give it to me?’” he smiled. “I read it and I was very moved by the ending. It ends very much like a Dickens novel.”

A.V. Club interviews Anthony Bourdain


 

Within the last decade, the idea of the "celebrity chef" has shifted away from the Paul Prudhommes and Julia Childs of the world. Rachael Ray and Martha Stewart aside, foodie culture these days is more or less ruled by a group of no-nonsense "bad boys" with attitude to match their considerable skill. The popularity of tough-talking, proudly egomaniacal iconoclasts like Rocco DiSpirito and Gordon Ramsay has as much to do with their refusal to mince words as their ability to mince garlic. Some of the credit (or blame) for that seismic shift must be laid at the feet of Anthony Bourdain, the former renowned executive chef of Manhattan's Brasserie Les Halles. He became a cult celebrity nearly overnight after publishing his hilarious, scathing autobiography, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures In The Culinary Underbelly. Since then, Bourdain has become one of the most visible chefs in the world, thanks to appearances on shows like Top Chef, as well as his own Travel Channel series, No Reservations, on which he seeks out unique experiences, culinary and otherwise, on the darkest corners of the map. The A.V. Club recently caught up with Bourdain during some increasingly rare downtime to talk about his whirlwind career, his heroin-addled days serving fine cuisine to New York's finest punk-rock bands, and whether he thinks the rise of the "celebrity chef" has had any real impact on the way people eat.

Will Smith is a scientologist.

Looks like he finally gave in to Xenu!


Will Smith has joined the ranks of Hollywood power players actively recruiting for the Church of Scientology.
Big stars traditionally distribute "wrap presents" to crew members after completing a film.
His recent gift after wrapping next summer's comedy "Hancock" was a card good for a personality test at your local Scientology center.
Never mind that such tests are given free by the church anyway.
The quiz is designed to convert people to the religion by identifying personality flaws that - surprise! - Scientology can fix right up for you.
Smith, who is best buddies with Scientology booster Tom Cruise, has never confirmed that he joined the church.
But he told "Access Hollywood" last month: "I was introduced to it by Tom, and I'm a student of world religion.
I was raised in a Baptist household. I went to a Catholic school, but the ideas of the Bible are 98% the same ideas of Scientology, 98% the same ideas of Hinduism and Buddhism."'

Jamie Lynn comes to Mama Lynne’s defense



Publishers put the kibosh on a child-rearing book by Lynne Spears, but her pregnant teenage daughter thinks Mom’s done a bang-up job. Jamie Lynn Spears “takes time to hit back at critics who question the way she was raised by her mother” in OK!

While Lynne’s older daughter, Britney, works out her personal issues in every public venue but the “Dr. Phil” show, Louisiana’s unofficial Mother of the Year is sharing her parental prowess. “Jamie Lynn and her mom will be raising this baby together,” a source close to the family told the magazine. “They’re in this together.”

In fact, the Mirror reports that Jamie Lynn, who “unlike her big sis, seems determined to be a good mom,” is attending parenting classes with her mentoring mom. With her second chance on the way, Lynne may be looking to bone up on her own maternal acumen — but what about the baby-daddy?!
Story continues below ↓advertisement

He gets a pass on parenting class, but OK! reassures readers that Casey Aldridge is still in the picture. “Casey and Jamie Lynn are still together,” an insider said “And of course he’s the father!”

The top 10 phony rock bands of all time

The alternative history of rock 'n' roll is filled with class acts: The Swanky Modes, Steel Dragon, the Luminaries, and who could forget the upstart grrrl group the Stains? Most people do forget ... because these bands don't exist outside of the movies. In fact, there's a veritable alternative history of rock 'n' roll that only exits in film. Many nonexistent bands are bad; many are surprisingly good; some are downright inspired.

O’Reilly’s anti-gay factor

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Bill O’Reilly, anchor of Fox News Channel’s The O’Reilly Factor, has been identified by gay media watchdog The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) as one of the top gay haters of 2007 in their annual list of worst anti-gay voices.

On the June 21 edition, the show’s crime analyst, Rod Wheeler, detailed a “national network” of “lesbian gangs” that prey on young girls in a sensational report. O’Reilly later admitted that the report was embellished and promised, “We’ll do better next time”.

Also on the list was Isaiah Washington, for using an anti-gay slur on co-star TR Knight, and Ann Coulter, who called former presidential candidate John Edwards “a faggot”.

Cyrus' dogs named Most Eligible Pets

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Hannah Montana's concert tour and soundtrack aren't the only hot things on the charts these days.

Miley Cyrus' pets, Roadie and Loco, have been named top dogs by Animal Fair magazine.

Roadie, a Yorkie, and Loco, a Shih Tzu, clawed their way to the top of the magazine's Most Eligible Pets list. Readers' votes were announced Tuesday, and the list appears in the magazine's winter issue, on newsstands now.

"All the time we hear about the sexiest men alive, the best- and worst-dressed celebrities or the most beautiful people," editor Wendy Diamond said. "What about the pets?"

The list boasts a diverse group of pets hailing from owners who lead their fields in design, law, comedy, medicine and music, according to the magazine for animal lovers.

Cyrus' pooches triumphed because "they're the only ones who can get tickets to the sold-out Hannah Montana tour," Diamond said.

Cyrus portrays Montana.

Last month, the 15-year-old star of the Disney Channel show and daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus announced she would extend her "Best of Both Worlds Tour" with 14 more performances after all 55 shows sold out in minutes. Her "Hannah Montana 2 (Soundtrack)/Meet Miley Cyrus" album is also on Billboard's Top 10 list.

Also on Animal Fair's list are Jake and Bill, terriers that help actress Glenn Close with her dog-friendly blog, Lively Licks, and Teddy, the mini goldendoodle belonging to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.

"This year our readers chose an outstanding list of eligible pets," Diamond said. "While they may be eligible, let's also hope they're also spayed and neutered — although that's none of our business!"

Booo!

BRITISH superstar Robbie Williams has warned his fans he can't face being on the road again - because his last world tour nearly killed him.

The Rudebox star has also revealed he probably won't release a proper album this year.

He said he enjoyed stuffing himself with mince pies in his LA mansion over Christmas - and is tempted to quit showbiz for good.

Robbie told fans on his website: "There might not be a proper album out this year and there definitely won't be a tour any time soon. F*** that, the last one nearly killed me.

"There will be some kind of something this year.

"I might just put the B-sides to the next album out first online. Then put an album out in 2009. Which means you won't be seeing a lot of me on stage for a while. Sorry folks.

''I do have to say, the more time I'm spending away from public life, the more I like it. Unfortunately I have a massive competitive urge that wants me to put out three albums a year.

''Which one will win? I'm sure as soon as I get bored I'll be back. But right now there's a soy vanilla latte and mince pie waiting for me in the kitchen.''

Robbie went into rehab two months after his 2006 Close Encounters tour ended in December that year.

Interview with Ed Westwick

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

You Know You Love "Chuck"

Question: What do you love about playing Chuck?
Westwick:
Well, it's the multiple layers, it has to be. He has this dark side that has this interesting angle because the other characters are a nicer bunch, and Chuck has this demonic, evil side. But we saw in later episodes that he does help other people out and then goes back to his old ways with the whole love affair with Blair. He's actually in love with her, he thinks he's found the one. I think we've only seen a small part of what he is.

Question:  Would you like to see Chuck and Blair reunite at some point?
Westwick:
Maybe. You know, they always say opposites attract, but in this case they're very much the same. The extent of her attraction toward him is not as much as his attraction for her. To put two characters like Chuck and Blair together and to see them go at it and see what they fire up can definitely provide very, very good entertainment.

Johnny Cash tribute at Folsom prison canceled



A concert marking the 40th anniversary of Johnny Cash's famous concert at Folsom State Prison has been scrapped, with the prison and the promoter blaming each other for the cancellation.

Johnny Cash's "At Folsom Prison" album is considered one of his best.

The tribute concert, scheduled for Sunday, was to have been staged in the same prison cafeteria where Cash performed before inmates on January 13, 1968. That breakthrough performance became a popular live album.

Prison officials called off the show late Monday, citing problems over filming rights, media access and security concerns.

Promoter Jonathan Holiff claims the cancellation was just another broken promise by prison officials. "I was in tears when I found out," Holiff said.

The show, which would have been streamed worldwide over the Internet, was to have been underwritten by four nonprofit groups that were to share the venture's profit.

The concert also was to have featured Cash's music and include drummer W.S. "Fluke" Holland, one of his original backup musicians.

The executive director of Prison Fellowship Ministries, which had helped underwrite the event, said Cash fans and the inmates are the losers in this conflict.

"Johnny was wild at heart, just like these men," Joe Avila said. "But just like him, they can change. They can walk the line."

Cash died in 2003.

Well, that sucks.

Lawyer: Cops Issued Restraining Order Against Britney Spears


LAPD officers slapped Britney Spears with a temporary restraining order last Thursday night during her custody standoff, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

Called an "emergency protective order," it is enforced for five business days. Officers did it to "stabilize the situation," confirmed Kevin Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan.

Kaplan, who did not request the restraining order, declined to say whether he would seek to extend it.

"The person it's placed upon would have to stay approximately 100 feet from the other person, or face arrest," says LAPD spokesman Mike Lopez, who could not confirm the restraining order on Spears. "In most cases, it's issued by officers when there's the possibility of imminent and immediate danger to the victim."

Added Kaplan: "Kevin doesn't want to keep his kids from being involved in [Spears's] life. But foremost is that the kids be in an environment of structure [and] stability. The next goal is to get things to a point where both parents are able to participate fully in their [children's] lives."

On Jan. 4, Spears, 26, was stripped of all visitation rights with sons Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1, pending the ex-couple's next custody hearing on Jan. 14.

The Bill actor Jeff Stewart has been released from hospital after reportedly cutting his wrists on the set of the show.

Stewart, 52, who has played Pc Reg Hollis in the ITV1 show since it began, was taken to hospital after ambulance staff were called to the studios in Merton, south west London.

A spokeswoman for producers Talkback Thames confirmed "an incident" had taken place on Tuesday night, but said Stewart was no longer in hospital.

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We got a call at 5.50pm on Tuesday night to an address at Deer Park Road, SW19.

"We sent an ambulance and our staff treated an adult male and took him to hospital."

The Sun reported Stewart cut his wrists in his dressing room before phoning security staff, who called an ambulance. 

SOURCE

Apparently, he'd been told his contract was not being renewed - and he was the last original cast member left - and so he went back to his dressing room, slashed his wrists and then called for security who rang an ambulance.

Christian 'Botox' Slater to marry yet again

Christian Slater's marriage wish


Christian Slater is planning to propose to his new girlfriend, Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon.

Christian Slater wants to marry his new girlfriend.

The Hollywood actor has described his lover Tamara Mellon, the founder of designer shoe company Jimmy Choo, as a "phenomenal woman" and says he is planning to pop the question very soon.

He said: "Marriage is a huge question. But without a doubt I feel I've met someone, in Tamara, who is very special. Hopefully things will keep moving in the direction they currently are. It is definitely in my mind.

"She is a phenomenal woman and I've never been happier. She's fantastic, really fabulous."

Christian, 38, admitted he wasn't looking for love when he first met 40-year-old Tamara last year, shortly after he arrived in London to star in West End play 'Swimming With Sharks'.

He told Britain's Closer magazine: "I wasn't expecting to meet anyone. But I'm very grateful now that I went over to the UK to do the play."

Christian also revealed he has an amicable relationship with his ex-wife Ryan Haddon, and says the pair often spend holidays together with their children - Jaden, eight, and six-year-old Eliana.

The 'True Romance' star - who split from Ryan in 2005 - said: "My kids are hilarious. My daughter certainly has an entertaining gene, I wouldn't mind if she went into showbiz. I think my son will become a racing driver, but we'll see!"

Christian and Ryan's divorce was finalised in November 2006.

SPICEY ROBERTO: There's clearly an affinity between the Spice Girls and Roberto Cavalli, the man behind the shimmering, fireworks-colored Lurex numbers donned by the band for its recent comeback tour. So in between concerts, all the Spices — Posh, Baby, Sporty, Scary and Ginger (otherwise known as Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, Melanie Brown and Geri Halliwell) — will glide off stage to attend Cavalli's men's wear show in Milan on Monday. The girls will breeze in and out of town just for the show, which should guarantee a paparazzi frenzy. But there might be more benefit than simply eyeing the male models on the runway: the group will get to compare musical notes with Rock&Roll, the hot French rocker band that Cavalli featured in his spring men's wear campaign which will also be sitting front and center.

BIG DAMN HEROES

Entertainment Weekly's Top 25 Sci-Fi Stuff from the Past 25 Years!

25. V: THE MINISERIES (1983)
Created by Kenneth Johnson

Giant fascist lizards from outer space — it sounds like something you'd see on Mystery Science Theater 3000. But this parable of tolerance is far more complex and frightening than it seems. While the ''Visitors'' say they ''come in peace,'' they really want to drain Earth's water supply. Just in case you still don't get the point, their insignia looks suspiciously like a swastika.
POP CULTURE LEGACY Besides spawning an equally engaging sequel — 1984's V: The Final BattleV gave Robert Englund (a.k.a. Freddy Krueger) his big break.

THE BEST BIT In one of the best TV reveals ever, lizard queen Diana (Jane Badler) — still disguised as a sultry brunet human — unhinges her jaw and stuffs an entire guinea pig in her hideously elongated piehole. —Kristen Baldwin

Paula's gone crazy again...must be January.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Paula Abdul, the braying, oft-drunk judge of landmark cultural institution American Idol, caused quite the scene at LAX over the holidays, according to a source. Says a tipster who saw her in the Continental Airlines terminal: "She had an insane nervous breakdown that lasted 10 minutes. One minute she was hyperventilating and on the verge of passing out; the next she was yelling into her cell phone in this deep, rage-filled Poltergeist voice. She kept screaming three names over and over—Michael, Sidney, and Leslie. Everyone was staring at her, but she didn't care."

There were no cameras around, so she wasn't filming a scene for her train wreck reality show on Bravo. Still, hysterical outbursts aren't exactly new territory for Abdul. Anyone have an idea what prompted this one? Or who Michael, Sidney, and Leslie might be? Let us know!

American Greetings has released a Zoey 101 Valentine’s Day card featuring the pregnant-at-16 star in a muu-muu.

The message reads:

“Girls Rule

“Happy Valentine’s Day to a true sweetheart!”

The star — who was recently spotted with a GED book — has been at the center of controversy since announcing her pregnancy last month.

The news helped her Nickelodeon show net 7.3 million viewers — more than double the show's normal viewership — on last Friday’s season finale.

Tell Us: Would you give Jamie Lynn’s card to your Valentine?

Katharine McPhee: the latest Idol to go indie

Another Idol label deal bites the dust. Hollywood Insider has learned that Katharine McPhee is the latest former contestant to part ways with her record company. Like season 2 winner Ruben Studdard and season 5 champ Taylor Hicks, who were signed to J and Arista Records, respectively, a rep for RCA Records confirms that McPhee is no longer on the label's roster, adding that, "Katharine is going to record her next album on her own." McPhee’s self-titled debut charted at a promising No. 2 in February 2007, but it never reached gold status. Sources close to McPhee complain the label didn’t support the album — but Idol Phatigue seems to have conquered McPheever. Still, she shouldn’t lose all hope: The singer, who is managed by Guy Oseary, makes her first feature-film appearance (opposite Anna Faris) in I Know What Boys Like later this year, and we hear she's already in talks with another label.

As for this recent spate of Idol exits (we double-checked, and deals for Clay Aiken and Fantasia are still intact), a rep for the RCA Music Group (which includes Arista, RCA, and J Records) tells Insider, “After six seasons, we are proud of the eight artists on the roster who started their careers on the show. With respect to Taylor, we have an understanding that he will come back to us to play music once he’s finished writing his new material.”

Is Friday bb day for Christina?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Is Friday the big day for Christina Aguilera?

A source tells me that's when the 27-year-old pop princess is scheduled to give birth by C-section to her and hubby Jordan Bratman’s first baby!

Is it just me, or does it seem like Xtina has been pregnant for, like, ever? I mean, I can't wait to see the little one. Blessings all around! Here's to a healthy and happy life full of love and laughter!

Rumors about the former Mouseketeer’s pregnancy started in June, when Page Six reported she had begun announcing the happy news to friends. Then Paris Hilton let it slip in September at an Aguilera-hosted party at LAX nightclub in Las Vegas during MTV Video Music Awards weekend. “Congratulations to the most beautiful pregnant woman in the world,” Hilton shouted to the crowd. “You’re gorgeous.”

But Aguilera didn’t make it official until early November, when she told Glamour magazine she will “enter into mommyhood” next year. She capped it off by posing partially nude and showing her pregnant belly on this month’s cover of Marie Claire, while appearing totally nude in the mag's interior pages.

A rep for Aguilera did not comment on the due date.

Tara Reid says she's not anorexic

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Even when she's not making movies, Tara Reid is making headlines. In recent weeks, tabloids have published photos of the suddenly slimmer actress, sparking rumors of an eating disorder.

“I’m not too thin,” Tara, 32, insists in an exclusive interview and photo shoot in the new issue of OK!. “I go up 10 pounds, I go down 10 pounds.”

Tara also points out that, no matter what shape she's in, she can't seem to please anyone. "I was thin for a movie that I just finished [the upcoming horror film Vipers]. Now they’re going to see me and say I’m too fat because I’ve gained 10 pounds... I can’t win!"

The actress also wants to let people know that she's not exactly the person the tabloids would have you believe she is. "I don’t like going out every single night," she tells OK!. "I like to hang with friends and eat and sit next to a fire — that to me is the best night."

As for the constant criticism of her alleged party-girl lifestyle, Tara asks, "What have I ever really done? Dance on a table? Who doesn’t drink with their friends and have a good time? I don’t understand why people punish others for being happy.

"If I have a drink in my hand, it doesn’t make me an alcoholic. If I want a glass of wine, I want a glass of wine. I shouldn’t be afraid of it because of what the media might say. Anything you do, you’re screwed. That’s the lesson I’ve learned."

'I'm 22 and it's old-fashioned to get married young,' she says.

'I don't feel ready to settle down with anyone and get married yet.


'People see me and Jesse together and think it means we're getting married – but we don't take too much notice.'

The couple broke up in April after Jesse was admitted to rehab for alcohol problems, but Nadine says this time around they're doing fine.

'Things with Jesse are going great at the moment,' she insists. 'He's a very good man.'

Kate Bosworth for Calvin Klein

Kate Bosworth for Spring/Summer 2008 Calvin Klein. Yay! Please enjoy.

Kate Bosworth talks to NYLON about being the new face of Calvin Klein Jeans!

Who’s more all-American than Kate Bosworth?! Calvin Klein wanted to see more of the starlet than in the front row of his fashion shows, so today announced that she would be the new face of Calvin Klein Jeans. Shot by David Sims, the campaign marks a return to classic “clean, pure” CK. In the midst of filming 21, here Bosworth talks about her first global modeling gig ever! SG

“It’s funny, I definitely feel much more uncomfortable modeling because it’s not something I know how to do. When I act, I’m not aware of the camera; I’m just there with the actor in that moment. As a model, you’re very aware of the camera. What I enjoyed most about doing this campaign was finding and becoming a certain character. I think working with people like David Sims [photographer] and Karl Templer [stylist], who want to find and shape that character, instead of simply capturing a pretty picture, is really exciting. So, this campaign was a little bit like an acting job in that way.”

Last Britney tabloid cover of the day



At about 7 p.m. on Jan. 3, Britney Spears stood in her home holding tight to her 1-year-old son, Jayden James. The scene, however, was anything but soothing. Just moments before, when Britney’s ex-husband Kevin Federline’s bodyguard, Mike, arrived at Britney’s LA mansion to pick up Jayden and his older brother, Sean Preston, 2, Britney had suffered an apparent mental breakdown.

While Sean sat helpless, already strapped into bodyguard Mike’s car, Britney, 26, grabbed Jayden and ran, locking herself and her baby in the bedroom, says an insider: “It was like something out of a horror movie. All you could hear was screaming. Jayden was crying hysterically.”

Britney, however, was eerily calm — at first. “Mike tried for about 45 minutes to get her to come out,” says the insider, “but she calmly said no and proceeded to ignore him.”

But then Britney began to speak — to no one in particular and in a series of strange voices. “She was talking in all these different accents,” the insider says. “It was creepy. And it scared the hell out of Mike. He called Kevin and told him what was going on.”

At about 10:30 p.m., nearly three hours after the ordeal had begun, police finally coaxed Britney out of the bedroom, and she acted like nothing was wrong. “She said she’d just been eating animal crackers with Jayden and texting on her cell phone,” says the insider. “The cops thought she may have been under the influence because of her strange behavior.”

John and Minka call it quits



John Mayer and Minka Kelly have quietly called it quits after a brief romance.

The musician, 30, and the 27-year-old Friday Night Lights actress split over a month ago, but are "still friends," sources tell PEOPLE.

Despite their split, the two have remained close: Kelly showed her support for Mayer at his December concert in L.A. and accompanied him to the after-party at Parc where they got cozy in a booth together. The two were also spotted days later having breakfast in L.A. and also drinks at The Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood.

According to a pal of Kelly's, "Minka told a couple friends that she and John had broken up but she really didn't want to tell anyone."

The couple became involved earlier this fall. They were spotted dining together several times in Austin, Texas, in early October and again later that month in California. They also met up with Chris Ivery and Ellen Pompeo at a Knicks game in New York in November.

The split, however, may not last for long. When Mayer dated Jessica Simpson, the couple broke up and reunited numerous times before finally calling it quits for good.

A rep for Mayer had no comment. Kelly's rep couldn't be reached for comment.

Britney's family to force her to get help, but has she skipped town?


TMZ has learned family members and professionals in Britney's life are working as a team to get her mental help -- either voluntarily or involuntarily -- for treatment of what appears to be a severe bipolar disorder.

We're told it's going to happen one way or the other, and fast. So far, Britney refuses to commit herself voluntarily, but the team is persisting.

Sources say they are considering "a number of options," some of which are "creative."

The most extreme option -- going to court and getting an order forcing Britney into in-patient treatment. That would be the last ditch effort.

If involuntary commitment is the only option, Brit must be picked up by cops -- again -- on a "5150," meaning she's a danger to herself or others. Then, while she's in the hospital, health care professionals can go to the County Public Guardian, who can then go to court and ask for what's called a "conservatorship." The conservator would then basically assume control of Brit's life.

If the judge grants the conservatorship, Brit could be involuntarily committed to a mental hospital. Again, that's not the only option and various alternatives are being discussed right now.

Pre-taped People's Choice Awards bombs on TV

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The People's Choice Awards bombed in the television ratings as viewers tuned out the strike-altered CBS broadcast, sounding an alarm for upcoming awards programs including the Oscars.
ADVERTISEMENT

The two-hour show hosted by Queen Latifah on Tuesday averaged just 6 million viewers overall, down 5.3 million from last year, while ratings among viewers ages 18 to 49 -- the group most coveted by advertisers -- fell to less than half the 2007 level, Nielsen Media Research reported on Wednesday.

The film and television awards show had been scaled back from a traditional ceremony, in which stars accept trophies and make speeches onstage, to a "magazine"-style format in which winners gave thank-you speeches in pre-taped interviews.

"There was no sense of ceremony. It was like something being done in a bunker," TV Guide critic Matt Roush said. "Anybody who made it to the end, I suppose, was somebody who had won a People's Choice Award."

The ratings plunge was an ominous sign for this Sunday's telecast of the Golden Globe Awards -- another film and TV awards show that has been reduced to a news conference on NBC due to the Hollywood writers strike. The Golden Globes show regularly reaches about 20 million viewers.

"I think only the most desperate show business junkie will be tuning in Sunday for what they have to offer," Roush said.

Moreover, it could bode ill for the Oscars, the world's top film awards, if the strike is not settled before that ceremony airs on ABC on February 24. Last year, nearly 40 million viewers watched the star-studded Oscars ceremony.

STRIKE IMPACT

Organizers of the People's Choice and Golden Globe programs altered their shows after the Writers Guild of America refused to grant strike waivers allowing the shows to be written by union writers, and actors were expected to boycott the shows rather than cross picket lines to attend them.

Roughly 10,500 WGA members went on strike against major film and television studios on November 5 in a contract dispute that centers on writers' demands for a greater share of revenue generated by work distributed over the Internet.

The strike has halted production on television shows, derailed films and cast a shadow over Hollywood's awards season.

NBC and organizers of the Golden Globes were still working out details of their one-hour news conference telecast. But a spokesman for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which presents the Golden Globes, said red-carpet arrivals and after-parties have been scrapped.

Anticipating a ratings slump, NBC already is offering some advertisers cash back for the event, which typically generates about $20 million in ad revenue for the network, a person familiar with the arrangements told Reuters.

Organizers for the 80th annual Academy Awards are still planning on a traditional ceremony to be hosted by cable television comedian Jon Stewart. So far organizers have given no inkling as to how the show might be altered if the writers strike is not settled by then.

Tom Brady's Skank (and I only say that because I'm jealous!)




Euros? Dollars? Pounds? Gisele Bundchen insists she's perfectly happy with them all, again denying reports that the Brazilian supermodel is shunning the weak U.S. dollar in favor of European currency.

Bundchen — known to U.S. sports fans as the girlfriend of quarterback Tom Brady — has been struggling for months to knock down recurring reports that she insists on being paid in euros, which have been rising against the dollar.

"The story of the euro is a lie," she told the Brazilian newspaper O Globo in comments published Wednesday. "I work with many international companies, I earn salaries in different currencies, that's all."

Frustration is running high in Brazil over the weak dollar and its harm to South America's largest economy. The Brazilian real has nearly doubled in value against the dollar over the past five years, making local exports more expensive to Americans.

Bundchen, one of the world's richest models, was the main attraction at the Fashion Rio Week on Tuesday. She exhibited three outfits and drew wild applause in a puffy beige mini-dress.

O Globo said Bundchen set ground rules for the interview: no questions about her boyfriend.

Rock of Love 2 First Episode Preview



We just got finished watching the first episode of Rock of Love 2 and it seems like the girls are wild enough to easily fill the shoes of their predecessors. Well, they'll fill the DD bras of their predecessors any rate. We don't want to give too much away before the season premiere (Sunday at 9/8c), but here a few a few tidbits to whet your appetite:

Vince and Jennifer Still Friends



Nice to know Jennifer Aniston still has someone she can count on. Even though they're no longer an item, Vince Vaughn tells the new issue of Parade magazine that the two still talk.

"I have such a great friendship with Jennifer," says the actor. "Really. I still talk to her constantly. I have a real, genuine connection with Jen. And I have a real appreciation of her. That continues to this day."

And from the rest of his profile, it sounds like being friends with Vince is a much better deal than being romantically involved:

"I do still feel like I'm 20 sometimes. And sadly, I probably am in certain areas. [Toxic bachelor alert!] As you get older, you just get more used to being this way. It gets harder to be open to that switch of having a family and kids and that kind of stuff.'"

No wonder they split.

Ginger Spice testifies against abusive nanny

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Spice Girl Geri Halliwell wept on the stand today as she testified against the nanny who is accused of injuring her daughter.

Ginger Spice described in emotional detail the day in August 2006 when she discovered her daughter, Bluebell Madonna, was being abused at the hands of her nurse Jasmine Schmidt.

While away for a countryside weekend, she awoke to Bluebell's "hysterical" and "angry" cries and ran into the nursery only to be blocked from entry by the German-born nurse.

"[Bluebell] was quite hysterical, crying, really angry crying." she recalled of her then-two-month-old.

"[Schmidt] put her hands across the doorway almost blocking me going in. She was quite big and I stopped. Then she said, 'Leave it, I will swaddle her'," Geri quoted Schmidt as saying. "I felt she was trying to take care of me because I would get a good night's sleep so I said OK and left it there."

When asked if she had heard her daughter cry like that before, the performer, who has described feeling "tortured" by the abuse, continued: "Just in the last few days I heard that... It was really... just hyperventilating crying."

The next morning, while nursing Bluebell, Geri noticed the red marks on her daughter's head and cheek and a bruise on her arms.

She describes confronting the 31-year-old Schmidt, who looked "vacant" and explained that Bluebell had been tossing and turning in the night and said she'd need a meningitis test.

Dressed in a cream dress and long overcoat, Geri told the court: "I called my doctor, but then something inside me felt funny towards Jasmin because of her remarks. I went to my bedroom and closed the door because I felt quite frightened of her. I was scared of her as we were in the middle of nowhere."

They cut short the trip and Geri instructed Schmidt to stay away from Bluebell and instead sit in the rear with her Pomeranian, Daddy.

Schmidt is also accused of abusing another boy in 2003 and the joint trial is expected to continue for the next three weeks. It's unclear how much time she faces if convicted.

another baby for Anthony Kiedis?

Red Hot Chili Peppers rocker Anthony Kiedis and his girlfriend, model Heather Christie, 22, welcomed their first child, son Everly Bear, three months ago. They love being parents so much that they are already thinking of adding to their family. The 45-year-old dad said,

I'd definitely like to give him a sibling in the not-too-distant future, something close in age.

Being a parent to a newborn can be hard, but Anthony has a way to help get around that -- surfing.

My goal for the year is to get better at surfing, which I think will make me a better father. The more time I spend in the ocean, the better off I am when I'm around [Everly Bear].

Anthony, who just wants "to be present and in the moment with my boy", also revealed that he and Heather got lucky with Everly because he "sleeps like a dream this kid, it's great".

I wonder if she's playing the alien.

Kimya Dawson's thoughts on JLS/Ellen Page sex scene



so after reading that Jamie Lynn spears was touched or whatever by the Music in Juno i wondered what Kimya dawson might think of that. Well, i checked out Kimya's Livejournal(which is very very cute btw) and she said,

"P.S. Jamie Lynn Spears took her mom to see Juno on Friday before announcing her pregnancy. I am glad the parents in that movie are so strong and supportive. I hope that sets a good example for parents. Teen sex and teen pregnancy happen. I am not going to pass judgement. I just hope she is less troubled than Britney. There are plenty of good teen moms out there. Plenty of em. Hooray for good mamas of all ages. Show us what you're made of Jamie Lynn. I have been rooting for you for years."

ALSO
Ellen Page was in some movie called Mouth to Mouth and someone posted the "best sex scene" from the movie. apparently she was only 16. I really have no idea, but pretty exciting stuff.

My dad was out working in Montana for a few weeks, in one of the areas where a bunch of rich people have their ranches or whatever. This is a story he heard from a guy he was working with. This isn't word of mouth or anything, this is exactly what happened as told by the guy it happened to.

EDIT: Okay guys, this may or may not be true. I saw a few pictures of the supposed truck and it looked new and expensive. I talked to the guy for a minute on the phone and he said the "Bill Gates thing" was true. But then again, my dad knows some pretty uh...eccentric people. Gospel truth it is not. Interesting? Yes.

2008 = year of the baby



Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan is pregnant with her third child, reports People.com.

Kerrigan, 38, and her husband Jerry Solomon are parents to 2-year-old Brian and 11-year-old Matthew. “We are thrilled, and she’s feeling great,” Solomon says. ”We’ve actually known for quite a while but didn’t want to say anything because of the number of miscarriages she had in the past, so she’s farther along than we might otherwise have done it. But everybody’s very excited.”

Kerrigan had six miscarriages over the past eight years before conceiving 2-year-old Brian.

How does her Brian think of being an older brother? “Brian changes from day to day. Sometimes he thinks it’ll be fun, sometimes he doesn’t like babies, sometimes he thinks he’s a baby, so it’s really all over. … But he hasn’t figured out yet whether he’s in favor of this or not.”

Solomon says they are “debating” on finding out the sex of the baby.

Zefron: "When girls rotate their tongues around your mouth like a washing machine.."




High School Musical hottie Zac Efron dished his personal kissing secrets to J-14 magazine to get readers ready for that special moment on Valentíne's Day! Zac, who is frequently spotted kissing his lover and costar Vanessa Hudgens, advises:

"Go easy and take your time. Be respectful of the other person and don't just get on in there and grope all over the place. My favorite kisses happen when I've taken it nice and slow."

He also warns about the dreaded 'washing-machine kiss'!

"Don't try to swallow the person you're kissing by opening your mouth so wide! I've never experienced a washing-machine kiss, but I've heard about them. When girls rotate their tongues around your mouth like a washing machine, that's not a good idea."

Hollywood legend Merv Griffin is still getting laughs — from beyond the grave.

As one of his final wishes, the late talk show king asked that his granite grave stone bear this tongue-in-cheek inscription: "I will not be right back after this message."

Now his irreverent last words are drawing crowds to the tiny Westwood Village Memorial Park in Los Angeles — which is also the last resting place of Hollywood legends Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, Carroll O'Connor and Jack Lemmon.

Told that Merv is still getting laughs in the graveyard, his company spokesperson Marcia Newberger told The ENQUIRER: "Merv would have wanted it exactly that way."

Merv died Aug. 12 at age 82 after a long battle with prostate cancer. He left a $1 billion estate — and a legacy of smiles.

She is also on the February of LUCKY...


On her current fashion sense: “Right now my style is very frenetic. It seriously changes as quickly as my mood.”

On her shoe fetish: “I’m kind of obsessive about really stunning heels. I get excited even taking the elevator up to the shoe floor at Bergdorf [Goodman].”

On transitioning from jeans-and-flip-flops teenager to glamorous Hollywood actress: “I’ve only recently been able to try out a bunch of different styles without feeling like I’m dressing beyond my age. On the show, I spend most of my time in a cheerleading uniform, so in real life I like to have a lot more fun with my clothes.”

Later this year, the petite 18-year-old actress will star alongside Julia Roberts and Ryan Reynolds in the drama Fireflies in the Garden.

Mischa Barton Family Rep Rips Tabloid Story About Sister

A rep for Mischa Barton's family on Wednesday blasted a tabloid report that the actress's sister was hospitalized for a drug overdose.

"Mischa understands that as an actress and a public person she needs to address her issues in a timely and appropriate manner. That being said, she's the only public person in her family and we will not address these sleazy, tabloid reports," rep Howard Bragman tells PEOPLE. "I think these pieces of s--- who work at hospitals and sell private information are not only breaking the law, but they're morally reprehensible. They're selling people's private information for the price of dinner for four at Lawry's. And I hope they choke on their prime rib."

The National Enquirer reports that 19-year-old Hania Barton was hospitalized over the holidays after overdosing on a muscle relaxer.

Pam to Rick -- I'm Pregnant, Get Lost!

  
TMZ has learned the divorce between Pam Anderson and Rick Salomon is back on and Pam is pregnant!

You'll recall Anderson filed for divorce last month, but called it off just days later. But sources tell TMZ she is now moving forward with the divorce, even though we know she's pregnant with his baby.

Salomon has told friends he believes she is "acting crazy" because of the pregnancy and hopes she will settle back into the marriage. Interestingly in her divorce petition, Anderson asked for spousal support but not child support.

The couple were married in Las Vegas on October 6.

alec says: if it wasn't for being forced, i wouldn't do talk shows. also, don't fuck on my blog.



From Alec Baldwin's blog in the Huffington Post:

Anyone who has ever seen a SAG contract with a major network or studio that covers the services of its lead actors knows that there are copious and mandatory clauses covering promotional duties. Most lead actors I know would hardly ever bother with appearances on most talk shows, let alone morning shows, except in order to fulfill contractual obligations to promote their projects. Junkets with all of those other entertainment media? I think they would pass on those, too. But their employers force them, literally, to get out there and sell. Otherwise, who would Jay Leno have seated next to him?..."

Alec even centered an entire post around a person who commented negatively on his blog, with the username MrsWakely. Some gems from the post:

"Poor Mrs. Wakely, who I actually think is Mr. Wakely."

"You don't know what you're talking about, Monsieur/Madame Wakely. Supporting the WGA while losing faith in this particular "team" of negotiators are two different things. (Kind of like loving your country even while it's been overrun by a cabal of trust-fund fascists who have Jesus' private cell phone number.)"

"As far as those one or two readers who thought I was taking a dig at Bruce Willis, you are even more clueless than Senor/Senora Wakely."

I Would Die For My Kids



The whole world watched last week as Britney Spears, locked inside her home with her youngest child, left even the most faithful fan questioning her ability to be a good parent to her two young boys, Sean Preston, 2, and 1-year-old Jayden James.

But only weeks earlier, it was a very different Brit that sat with her adorable little lads for the lens of photographer Dani Brubaker to shoot pictures you'll only see in the pages of the new OK!.

"She was very loving," Brubaker recalls. "She told me she loved her children and that they are her life." And far from being the neglectful parent some would portray her as, the photographer tells OK! that Brit was "very attentive" to the needs of her sons.

As for the 26-year-old singer's reaction to the shots of her with her sons, Brubaker reveals, "I'm told that when she saw the photographs she literally cried for over an hour and stared at them all night long."

So if merely looking at photos of her children has Britney in tears, that would explain why, according to a friend of the singer, the young mom is "inconsolable" right now as the chance of her winning the custody battle for her children looks increasingly slim. "Those boys are her everything, and she's said repeatedly that life isn't worth living if she can't have her babies with her," says the friend.

The friend adds that Britney would say goodbye to the music business to look after her boys. "The only reason she's doing this is because she wants them to look up to her onstage and be like, 'That's my mama,' and be proud of her. She'd put her life before them and die for Jayden and Preston. They're her whole world."

Reveals the friend, ""Britney has always said, 'I would die for my boys if that's what it took to prove I loved them. I'd do anything for them.' "

To see the photographs for yourself and to learn even more about Britney's private moments with her boys, pick up the new issue of OK! - on newsstands Thursday.

there's gotta be some sort of legal recourse for this, right? if not...i hope nobody trusts this lady to EVER take pictures for them and i hope she goes out of business. it's just not right, regardless of whether you like or hate britney.

Update: The photographer made a statement to breatheheavy.com that was posted on ONTD a while back stating:

My name is Dani Brubaker. I am the photographer that took photographs of Britney and her kids on two occasions back in early November.

Your site was referred to me as a place to be heard by Britney's fans, not by the tabloid media.

The images from the shoots were never available for purchase, although I have been offered upwards of half a million dollars. Recent postings indicate that I profited from these images. Which is not true.

My integrity isn't for sale. I stand by my statement that "The kids are adorable and are obviously well loved."

It's just so sad to see what the media does to her. Truly makes me sick to my stomach.

There wasn't ever a temptation, no matter what they offered. What I captured of her and the kids is truly beautiful and I just would not be able to live with myself to see those images in a tabloid.

Britney smoking at the gas station in Bel Air on January 8th

Brit's Mercedes was towed last night, but no worries! She always has another car she can drive. After last night's flat tire fiasco, Britney Spears was seen in her black Escalade with her assistant at the gas station on Sunset in Bel Air. Brit pulled up in the passenger's seat with her yorkie, London. We definitely haven't seen Britney in her Escalade since the days she used to have bodyguards. This is the SUV that she used to ride around in, with one of her bodyguards at the wheel. After having a smoke (at the gas station!) with London on her lap, Brit and Carla made their way to her Malibu house.

Johnny Grant, the honorary mayor of Hollywood, dead at 84



HOLLYWOOD -- Johnny Grant, Hollywood's longtime honorary mayor, died
Wednesday night of apparent natural causes in his bed at the Hollywood Roosevelt
Hotel, police said.


Known worldwide as Mr. Hollywood, the short-in-stature but tall-in-spirit Grant represented everything good about the town and the industry he loved and unabashedly promoted like few others.

"He was supposed to appear at some kind of function and they checked on him and found he passed away on his bed," said Officer Jason Lee, an LAPD spokesman.

Grant, the hotel's only full time guest, was found in his bed shortly before 7 p.m., Lee said.

He regularly appeared alongside celebrities as they received their stars on the Walk of Fame from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and as they pressed their hands into concrete outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

Grant received his star on the Walk of Fame in 1980 for his contributions to
television and for his support of the Hollywood community.

Perhaps Hollywood's longest serving and most tireless promoter, Grant always
dressed smartly in a suit and tie and displayed an enthusiasm and style that harkened back to Hollywood's Golden Era.

His 57 overseas USO tours to entertain America's armed service men and women
eclipsed the total tours of his friend and mentor Bob Hope, according to the
Hollywood Chamber of Commerce's Web site.

Grant made his show business debut on the radio in 1939, as a local newscaster for his hometown station WGBR in Goldsboro, N.C. He received national recognition for his unprecedented coverage of a notorious North Carolina murder trial, according to his official Web site, johnnygrant.com.
Grant convinced the judge to allow him to stand in the courtroom doorway and
broadcast live reports of the proceedings. During World War II, Grant served in the Army Air Corps. and broadcast from Seymour Johnson Field, N.C.

As a retired major general in the California State Military Reserve, Grant was sought out to advise the California National Guard in morale, public affairs, recruiting and special events.

Halle Berry and Gabriel go furniture shopping


    

Mother to be Halle Berry and model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry were spotted furniture shopping at Minotti in Beverly Hills on Monday. In related news Halle recently spoke with Times of India about accepting the changes in her body.


“It is true that I am three times the girl I usually am. I have to say there are some really wonderful things that come along with that. It’s liberating to walk down the red carpet and not thinking about holding in my stomach, because I can’t. I can actually attend award shows and eat meals there.” The Things We Lost in the Fire star is delighted to be expecting a baby with her boyfriend Gabriel Aubry. Before she fell pregnant, Halle frequently spoke of her desperation to have a baby, and vowed to get pregnant before she turned 40. She’d said, “If there’s no serious man in my life when I get to that age, whoever I’m dating at the time, I’ll say, ‘Hey, would you like to have a baby’?”
