Paris Hilton gives Jared Leto a lap dance

Paris Hilton gave Jared Leto a lap dance at the Sundance Film Festival.

The hotel heiress reportedly followed the 'Fight Club' star from party to party in Utah's Park City at the weekend and couldn't keep her hands off him.

A source told the New York Post newspaper, "Paris kept bothering Jared during the Camp Freddy concert at Village at the Yard. Then she attacked him at Hyde nightclub, giving him lap dances and kissing him."

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old socialite's little sister Nicky and her boyfriend David Katzenberg have also been causing trouble at the festival.

The couple indulged in a little lap dancing and took intimate photographs of themselves at Club Stereo at Doolin's Bar on Main Street on Friday night.

An onlooker said, "David stood in a corner at the club pulling down his belted jeans and taking pictures of his private parts bulging through his gray boxer briefs, while Nicky giggled next to him."


Lenny Kravitz...celibate for three years.


WE'RE not sure we believe him for a second, but Lenny Kravitz insists he's been celibate for three years. "[It's] just a promise I made until I get married," the rocker, who's been married to Lisa Bonet — and linked to Adriana Lima, Devon Aoki, Natalie Imbruglia, Vanessa Paradis, Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Penelope Cruz and Nicole Kidman — tells next month's Maxim. "Where I'm at in life, the women have got to come with something else, not just the body, but the mind and spirit. It usually trips them out, but that's the way it's going to be. I'm looking at the big picture."


Also steering clear of sex is Sandy "Pepa" Denton of Salt-n-Pepa. "Just because I'm flirtatious people think I'm loose. But it's not true," the hip-hop honey tells Steppin' Out's Chaunce Hayden. "Truth be told, I haven't had any sex in two years . . . I need a guy to make me go 'Wow!' and I just haven't found that guy. My standards have gone way up . . . I'm not just jumping right in anymore." How times have changed.

William H. Macy Upset He's Stuck In L.A. With Felicity Huffman

WILLIAM H. MACY is bitter his wife FELICITY HUFFMAN is "stuck in" DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES - because the show is holding back his own acting ambitions.

Macy is desperate to swap Los Angeles for New York and appear in a Broadway play with his spouse - but they're `trapped' on America's west coast, due to her commitments as one of the Desperate Housewives.

He jokes, "My wife is stuck in a hit, so we're not going anywhere for a while.
"But, as soon as that's over, we're talking about coming back. We want to do a play together."

My Chemical Romance promise new 'punk rock' album

Albums Of 2008: Gerard Way explains how his marriage has affected his songwriting

My Chemical Romance are set to start work on a “punk rock” new album this year.

Speaking to NME.COM, singer Gerard Way explained why he wanted to pare the band’s sound down for their next record, the follow-up to 2006's 'The Black Parade'.

Speaking about a new song the band began playing live in November, Way said: “We haven’t told anybody the title yet because I noticed that if you change the title later, kids get pissed off. So it’s just called ‘New Song’ right now. It’s one of those songs that just spills out of you, and you’re very inspired. It’s nice because it’s a return to punk rock music. It feels like a rock song.

Way explained that, having done away with their theatrical stage show on their most recent dates, album number four would most likely follow suit. “I think (the next album) will definitely be stripped down. I think the band misses being a rock band,” he declared.

“That doesn’t mean we won't explore really crazy ideas on the next albums, or do something even crazier. It doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll start to take steps backwards creatively.

“But it felt in a live sense, this is what we do great live. And we’re better musicians for having written and played 'The Black Parade', so you're dealing with (the fact that) everybody's better as musicians and singers. So to have that to play with in a live sense is really thrilling. We can cut loose more.

The new song, with a chorus line that goes “Someone out there loves you”, is markedly more optimistic than most of the band’s output thus far.

“It’s letting somebody know something and its knowing that yourself and it’s a great thing to know,” said Way. “And it’s a completely different direction thematically than what we’re used to.

“We have stuff with a lot of hope in it but not like that. It’s written from a different kind of place. It’s not written from a place of scepticism at all."


Sundance reacts to Ledger's death

Sundance Devastation: Stars React to Heath Ledger's Death

LOS ANGELES — Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron was notified of her very close friend Heath Ledger's passing on Tuesday while walking the carpet at the Sundance Film Festival for her independent thriller "Sleepwalking."

According to an eyewitness, an entertainment media outlet asked Theron about how she was feeling about the tragedy with numerous cameras rolling just moments after the news broke.

However, Theron had not yet been informed.

"Charlize put her head down and was ushered into the screening almost straight away," said our source. "She was shaking and her people were really upset about how it all went down."

After this "bad experience," Theron canceled the carpet of the "Sleepwalking" post-premiere party as she did not want to be questioned on the issue.

Meanwhile, fellow Australian and former girlfriend of Heath Ledger, Naomi Watts, has canceled press at the Park City, Utah, festival following the news of the 28-year-old's sudden death.

Watts was scheduled to hold one-on-one interviews with numerous media organizations on Wednesday morning to promote the highly anticipated "Funny Games."

However, FOXNews.com has since been advised that the press day will not take place due to Watts' emotional state. The couple met on the set of "Ned Kelly" in 2002 and were romantically linked until April 2004.

The publicists stationed in Park City, however, have been working overtime in an attempt to shield stars from the spotlight with various events and celebrities "calling in sick" to scheduled events.

However, "Alpha Dog" star Lukas Haas spoke to FOX soon after hearing the news, expressing his shock and extending his condolences to the Ledger family.

"He truly was a great, great actor who I have known and admired for sometime," Haas said. "I am in total shock -- it certainly has put a damper on the festival."

Leaner Lena Headey too 'emaciated' for role in the TV Terminator

British actress Lena Headey has been criticised for looking too "emaciated" to play iconic action heroine Sarah Connor in a new Terminator TV series.

While the show made an impressive debut, with more than 18million US viewers last week, Headey's lean physique has quickly been put under the microscope, with some deeming her unsuitable for the part.

The role was first made famous by iron-pumping Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Hamilton turned the character into a "butt-kicking inspiration to millions of women," according to the Los Angeles Times.

But now a critic writing for the paper says: "Some who worship at the altar of Sarah Connor detect heresy in the casting of Headey, who's healthy-looking and attractive but not exactly Ms Olympia."

Rooney the ugliest footballer?

GIRLS have voted Wayne Rooney No1 – in a poll of the world’s UGLIEST footballers.

Rooney, 22 – often compared to movie ogre Shrek – beat Barcelona’s bucktoothed Brazilian Ronaldinho and Manchester United teammate Carlos Tevez.

Of women polled by www.thepeoplesclub.com, 33 per cent picked the England star.

But a fifth of girls said they would go out with an ugly footballer just for their money.

This is insane, Ronaldinho is, by far, the ugliest person on the planet, let alone in football!


Inconclusive Autopsy

Ledger's Autopsy Inconclusive, M.E. Says

heath ledger

NEW YORK -- The medical examiner's office told NewsChannel 4 that an autopsy on actor Heath Ledger was inconclusive, and more tests are needed.

Additional toxicology tests will be conducted and results are not expected back for another seven to 10 days, according to the medical examiner's office.

Ledger was found by his housekeeper, who was trying to let him know that a masseuse had arrived for an appointment, police said. The housekeeper found him dead, face down and naked at 3:26 p.m.

Police sources said investigators found two bottles of sleeping and anti-anxiety pills at the apartment -- one prescription, one over the counter.

Fire officials told NewsChannel 4 that a 911 caller reported that a man was not breathing and his body was "cold"

The maid reported earlier she had heard Ledger snoring, police told WNBC.com.

Police sources said no suicide note had been recovered.

The apartment, which Ledger had rented for the last three or four months, was neat, a law enforcement told WNBC.

The New York City Medical Examiner's Office conducted the autopsy Wednesday, saying the cause of death is still uncertain. NYPD spokesman Browne said there was no obvious indication of suicide.

A gaggle of paparazzi and gawkers began gathering outside the building, where police put up barricades to control a crowd of about 300 people. Onlookers craned their necks as officers brought out a black body bag on a gurney, took it across the sidewalk and put it into a white medical examiner's office van.

As the building door opened, the bystanders snapped pictures with their camera phones and rolled their video. "He's coming out!" some said.

While not a marquee movie star, Ledger was a respected, award-winning actor who chose his roles carefully rather than cashing in on his heartthrob looks. He was nominated for an Oscar for his performance as a gay cowboy in "Brokeback Mountain," where he met Michelle Williams, who played his wife in the 2005 film. The two had a daughter, now 2-year-old Matilda, and lived together until they split up last year.

The death was a shocking and unforeseen conclusion for one of Hollywood's bright young stars. Though his leading man looks propelled him to early stardom in films like "10 Things I Hate About You" and "A Knight's Tale," his career took a notable turn toward dramatic and brooding roles with 2001's "Monster's Ball."

"I had such great hope for him," said Mel Gibson, who played Ledger's vengeful father in "The Patriot," in a statement from the actor's publicist. "He was just taking off and to lose his life at such a young age is a tragic loss. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family."

Ledger eschewed Hollywood glitz in favor of a bohemian life in Brooklyn, where he was one of the borough's most famous residents before moving to Manhattan. "Brokeback" would be his breakthrough role, establishing him as one of his generation's finest talents and an actor willing to take risks.

In the Australian city of Perth, where the actor was born and raised, his father called the actor's death "tragic, untimely and accidental."

"He was down to earth, generous, kind hearted, life loving unselfish individual extremely inspirational to many," Kim Ledger said, reading from a prepared statement. "Heath has touched so many people on so many different levels during his short life."

The actor's publicist, Mara Buxbaum, said in a statement Tuesday night: "We are asking the media to please respect the family's privacy and avoid speculation until the facts are known."

Ledger began to gravitate more toward independent fare. His 2006 film "Candy" now seems destined to have an especially haunting quality: In a particularly realistic performance, Ledger played a poet wrestling with a heroin addiction along with his girlfriend, played by Abbie Cornish.

But Ledger's most recent choices were arguably the boldest yet: He costarred in "I'm Not There," in which he played one of the many incarnations of Bob Dylan -- as did Cate Blanchett, whose performance earned an Oscar nomination Tuesday for best supporting actress.

Ledger told The New York Times in November that he "stressed out a little too much" during the Dylan film, and had trouble sleeping while portraying the Joker, whom he called a "psychopathic, mass-murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy."

"Last week I probably slept an average of two hours a night," Ledger said. "I couldn't stop thinking. My body was exhausted, and my mind was still going." He said he took two Ambien pills, which only worked for an hour, the paper said.

In what may be his final finished performance, Ledger proved that he wouldn't be intimidated by taking on a character as iconic as Jack Nicholson's Joker, playing the comic-book villain in a sequel to "Batman Begins."

Ledger's version of the villain in "Dark Knight, glimpsed in early teaser trailers, made it clear that his Joker would be less comical and more depraved and dark. "Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan said earlier this month that Ledger's performance as the Joker would be wildly different than Jack Nicholson's memorable turn in 1989's "Batman."

"It was a very great challenge for Heath," Nolan said. "He's extremely original, extremely frightening, tremendously edgy. A very young character, a very anarchic presence that taps into a lot of our basic fears and panic."

Ledger was a widely recognized figure in his Manhattan neighborhood, where he used to shop at a home and children's store. Michelle Vella said she had frequently seen Ledger with his daughter -- carrying the 2-year-old on his shoulders, or having ice cream with her.

"It's so sad. They were really close," said Vella. "He's a very down-to-earth guy and an amazing father."

She said Ledger once bought a bookcase at the home store, and purchased stuffed animals and dresses for his daughter at the children's store. Other locals said Ledger frequented many restaurants in the neighborhood and noticed no signs of trouble with the actor.

"It's a shock; he's so young," said Taren Dolbashian, who works on the block and also had seen Ledger with his daughter on his shoulders. "He always seems so happy."

Before settling down with Williams, Ledger had relationships with actresses Heather Graham and Naomi Watts. He met Watts while working on "The Lords of Dogtown," a fictionalized version of a cult classic skateboarding documentary, in 2004.

Ledger was born in 1979 in Perth, in western Australia, to a mining engineer and a French teacher, and got his first acting role playing Peter Pan at age 10 at a local theater company. He began acting in independent films as a 16-year-old in Sydney and played a cyclist hoping to land a spot on an Olympic team in a 1996 television show, "Seat."

After several independent films, Ledger moved to Los Angeles at age 19 and co-starred opposite Julia Stiles in "10 Things I Hate About You," a teen comedy reworking of "The Taming of the Shrew."

Offers for other teen flicks soon came his way, but Ledger turned them down, preferring to remain idle than sign on for projects he didn't like.

"It wasn't a hard decision for me," Ledger told The Associated Press in 2001. "It was hard for everyone else around me to understand. Agents were like, `You're crazy,' my parents were like, 'Come on, you have to eat."'

WNBC.com will provide more details as soon as they become available.

Has Tom from Myspace asked you out on a date?

Cosmo's Fun Fearless Males 2008: Tom Anderson

 Tom Anderson, 32, might be the first Fun Fearless Male with whom you’re actually friends...you and 110 million other people, that is. As the president and cofounder of MySpace, Tom ignited the social-networking boom when he started the site in 2004. Less than two years later, he and his partner, Chris DeWolfe, sold the company to News Corp. for $580 million.

Now this mogul schmoozes with 50 Cent, Bono, and Bill Clinton and is the guy record labels and movie studios trust to predict hot trends. But he hasn’t morphed into a Hollywood player. In fact, he’d rather meet a chick through his site than hit on her at a bar.

“I haven’t taken a vacation since we started. I am always thinking about the present and really focused on what I enjoy doing.”

“People talk to their family members in the military who are stationed in Iraq or other countries. Others have found lost relatives or their biological parents. At least once a day, someone will write ‘I met my husband on MySpace.’ The stories are endless.”

“I have. It’s very unobtrusive. If they don’t want to write back, they can delete it or just ignore it. And it’s way less pressure than going up to someone in person and hitting on them, which I always thought was kind of rude.” 
I was reading Cosmopolitan magazine today and I noticed this interview, I just thought it was kinda funny.

Scientology Vs The Intrawebs! Gawker Declares War!

Tom Cruise has personally, PERSONALLY, been pwned. This weekend, an anonymous Internet group (named Anonymous — these are not masters of subtlety) started a war with the Church of Scientology by hammering the group's web site; Scientology.org is down after a brief traffic spike. This isn't the only group of Internet users unafraid of the intimidating cult; a whole range of sites has turned the Church into a mockery by doing what mainstream celebrity-coverage outlets wouldn't dare. Here's a guide to the war (and a creepy manifesto made by The Internet!).

All I have to say is after going to my local Scientology Center in NOLA and get my e-reading, I am on the side of the internets and I will do anything to see this cult and it's messiah Tom Cruise be crushed. These people are fucking nuts!

Oh that Scientologist I work with is fucking crazy, that bitch is staring me down right now...

TV show lures Fearne Cotton Stateside


ITN - Wednesday, January 23 12:36 pm

Popular TV presenter Fearne Cotton has been lured to the US with the opportunity to host a live show.

The bubbly 26-year-old has reportedly signed up with major US network NBC, to front The Guinness Book Of World Records - Live!

The TV personality follows in the footsteps of Cat Deeley, who swapped her life on British TV to move to the US and pursue a career in Hollywood, hosting dance show So You Think You Can Dance?

Cotton, a former Top Of The Pops presenter, apparently flew to Los Angeles to meet network executives and rehearse for the show, which airs in the US on Sunday.

But Cotton will have to prove her skills as a top presenter, as she will be competing against hundreds of Hollywood hopefuls who are desperate to win big TV contracts.

Fearne currently co-hosts a radio show with Reggie Yates and recently fronted ITV2's The Xtra Factor.


Its like another British invasion, only with TV presenters...

Police to View Video of Winehouse

(Wednesday January 23, 2008 02:10 PM)

LONDON (Reuters) - Police said on Wednesday they would investigate video footage of soul singer Amy Winehouse allegedly smoking crack cocaine.

Still images from the footage first appeared on the front page of the Sun tabloid on Tuesday, and the1 quoted the head of Winehouse's record company saying that it may abandon plans to promote her in the key U.S. market.

"Officers will be viewing the footage when we receive it from the media," said a spokesman for London police.

"We will then assess the footage to ascertain whether any action needs to be taken. As always we thank the media for their co-operation."

The Sun said it had already handed over the footage, taken early on Friday morning. Hours later a dishevelled-looking Winehouse appeared in court to support husband Blake Fielder-Civil who is fighting charges related to a pub brawl.

Winehouse, one of the country's top-selling artists, has won critical and commercial success with her hit album "Back to Black", and garnered six Grammy nominations in December.

But plans by Island Records, part of the Universal Music, to promote her in the United States may be put on hold due to the recent scandal.

"It may be time to draw a line under it all and move on," the Times quoted Island boss Nick Gatfield as saying.

Winehouse, 24, had been invited to perform at the Grammys ceremony on February 10, but drugs-related problems have hampered her request for a visa. She was arrested for possession of marijuana in Norway last year.

Winehouse was photographed visiting a private London clinic on Tuesday, which a spokesman for her label said she had been visiting regularly for some time.

Winehouse's father Mitch said he hoped some good would come of the scandal.

"Of course it kills me to see my daughter on the front page of your newspaper like that," he told the Sun. "It's nothing short of devastating -- thinking she wants to destroy herself. She'll be heartbroken about it all.

"But for all the hurt and pain, it may finally be the thing to focus her mind and convince her to get the help she needs to quit for good."

Rudd saddened by Heath Ledger's death
January 23, 2008 11:19am

PRIME Minister Kevin Rudd has paid tribute to Australian actor Heath Ledger, who was found dead in a New York apartment today.

The Perth-born Oscar nominee was found dead in a Manhattan apartment today by his masseuse and housekeeper.

Mr Rudd described the loss of the 28-year-old actor as a tragedy.

"It was with great sadness that I have learned of the passing of Heath Ledger," he said.

"It is tragic that we have lost one of our nation's finest actors in the prime of his life. Heath Ledger's diverse and challenging roles will be remembered as some of the great performances by an Australian actor."

Mr Rudd said the nation's thoughts were with Ledger's family and close friends, especially his two-year-old daughter Matilda.


Ledger's death delays White House event

Ledger's death delays White House event

WASHINGTON -- The death of actor Heath Ledger prompted the White House to postpone President Bush's event on Wednesday promoting an ad campaign aimed at preventing prescription drug abuse.

Ledger, 28, who was nominated for an Oscar for "Brokeback Mountain," was found dead Tuesday in his New York apartment. There were sleeping pills near him, but the cause of his death remains under investigation.

The president was to make a statement in the Roosevelt Room on the Office of National Drug Control Policy's television advertisement about preventing prescription drug abuse. A federally financed study released in December at the White House showed illicit drug use by teens continued to gradually decline overall this year, but the use of prescription painkillers remained popular among young people.

White House press secretary Dana Perino said Bush's event had been scheduled for a while.

"We thought it would be better to postpone the event rather than run the risk of anyone thinking that we were being opportunistic in highlighting the issue," she said.

Britney Arrives at Court, Ya'll

Without much fanfare or crazaziness, Britney Spears arrived at the L.A. County Courthouse for this morning's custody hearing.

Brit, K-Fed (still mohawked and wearing a grey suit) and their attorneys are all making their way to the courtroom now for a showdown. We hear the popwreck will make a desperate plea to the judge to be granted visitation with her two young sons.


If anyone ever needed Jesus in their life, it is this bitch. Let's hope the Scientologist get her so she will have an excuse to be crazy.

On the personal tip, the scientologist I work with has official invited me to come with her to her center and offered to help me with my proposal for work. She is relentless!

Another star gives her condolences


Rising star Rachel McAdams never worked with Heath, but wrote on her MySpace page, "My heart goes out to Heath's family and friends during this time of great loss. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years back and I can definitely say he had a wonderful career ahead of him. Undeniable talent and a loving new father. It's so tragic to see it all end so soon and sudden."

THE family of actor Heath Ledger, who died in New York today, has gathered at his mother's home in Perth.

The 28-year-old was found dead in a Manhattan apartment this morning, with sleeping pills nearby. Police said there was no obvious indication of suicide.

Family members gathered at Ledger's mother's home in the southern suburb of Applecross.

A man, believed to be Ledger's stepfather, said the family was "cut up" by the death.

Neighbours were reluctant to talk, but one teenage girl said Ledger had been in and out of his mother's house over summer.

The actor spent much of December and January in Perth with his family, including older sister Kate.

He said at the time he was grateful to the people of Perth and local media for leaving him alone to be himself on his holiday.


I just saw his family on the news making a statement. It was so upsetting.

DanRad talks exclusively to Empire Magazine about his role as Dan Eldon

You think Daniel Radcliffe and you think Harry Potter – unless, of course you've seen Equus, in which case you think images you never needed to see. But, with the end of the Potter series approaching, Radcliffe is looking to make his move to grown up movie acting. He'll start with Journey, the story of Dan Eldon, a photo-journalist who was stoned to death by a mob in Mogadishu in 1993. Empire recently spoke to Radcliffe and talked a little about the film, which Radcliffe says is not quite as close to production as reports have suggested.

"There's a lot of stuff flying around about this at the moment," he said. "I am absolutely attached to it and it would be amazing to play that part. But people are making assumptions about when it's going to happen and it won't happen – if indeed it does happen – for a while yet. But basically...Eldon grew up in Africa and discovered a gift and a passion for photography. Eventually he got too caught up in something that lead to his death".

To prepare for the role Radcliffe spoke at length with Eldon's family about his life. "They showed me some of his diaries, which the film will be based on mostly," he continued. "They're incredible. There have got to be 20 books and they're all inches thick, with things sellotaped into them and with wires coming out and everything. He was someone who died very young, but seemed to live as full a life as much as anyone who lived to be a ripe old age. It'll be incredible to play him".

We genuinely believe Radcliffe could well pull this off and we hope it gets made. If he can transfer the range and passion that he showed on stage in Equus to something on the big screen, then many a Potter critic will be silence.

She is Gone, Ya'll!

Britney left?!? TMZ was in the courtroom when the case was called. Britney was in the building, but never made it to the courtroom. When the Commish asked her attorney if she was coming back, she answered "I don't know whether she'll be here or not," adding, "I don't want to delay the hearing."

K-Fed was sworn in and the media were cleared from the courtroom.

As we reported, Brit's lawyers want to restore visitation in a "therapeutic setting" -- translated, she needs mental help. If Brit isn't there to testify, she'll win a Grammy for "Blackout" before she gets visitation back.

Cousin says actor had one of the best times of his life just before his death

Knoxville-born actor Brad Renfro was buried Tuesday afternoon on a quiet hill in Grainger County. Mist hung over the surrounding ridges while approximately 60 family members and friends weathered a light cold rain and prayed during a brief ceremony.

Renfro, 25, was known for his roles in "The Client," "Apt Pupil," "Telling Lies in America," "Bully," "Ghost World" and other films. The young actor was found dead at his Los Angeles home on Jan. 15 of undetermined causes.

Renfro was only 10 when he was cast in the role of a boy who had witnessed a murder in the 1994 film "The Client." Acclaim for his work in that role led to several other roles in other major Hollywood movies and acclaimed independent films.

Tuesday's burial service was preceded on Monday with a funeral service and a receiving of friends at Stevens Mortuary Chapel.

After delaying for two hours because of icy roads, pallbearers loaded a pewter-colored casket containing the body of Renfro into a hearse at approximately 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, and family and friends drove in a procession from Stevens Mortuary in North Knoxville to the small Red House Cemetery in Blaine.

Many cars pulled to the side of the road alongside the Millertown Pike and Highway 11W as the motorcade passed. Two Grainger County Sheriff's Department cars bookended the procession once it crossed into Grainger County.

On Tuesday afternoon, a minister read from 1 Corinthians while family members and friends wept.

After the ceremony, Renfro's cousin and close friend Jesse Hasek said that Renfro had just stayed with him at his Knoxville home before he had returned to Los Angeles.

"It was the best visit we'd ever had," said Hasek. "His son was with him, and everything was perfect. Our kids played together. His little boy is just like him."

Hasek, who is the lead singer of popular rock band 10 Years, said that Renfro and his 4-year-old son had visited Knoxville from Dec. 29 until Jan. 9 and had stayed at Hasek's home.

In addition to his acting, Renfro had made the news because of his brushes with the law, including drug-related arrests. Hasek said that Renfro had straightened his life out and seemed very happy.

"He had hit rock bottom and had come way back up," said Hasek. "He was proud of himself."

Hasek said that there was no mystery to Renfro: "You know absolutely everything bad about him, because everything bad about him was published in the papers. And everything good about him, everybody (his friends and family) knew. ... He lived life to its fullest. So many people liked him because people could see his heart. He had such a big heart. He almost had a childlike innocence."

Hasek said that he felt as if God had provided Renfro with one of the best times of his life just before Renfro's death.

"At this point, there are no regrets," said Hasek. "I'm just proud of him."

Donda West's Doc: Her Death 'Almost Destroyed' My Business

Dr. Jan Adams, the plastic surgeon who performed liposuction and breast reduction surgery on Kanye West's mom one day before her Nov. 10 death, says the repercussions have nearly ruined his practice.

When Larry King asked Tuesday night how the publicity from Donda West's death has affected business, Adams replied: "Horribly. It's almost destroyed."

The CNN host then asked about reports of possible malpractice suits being filed against the doctor. "Certainly, I think me having done a TV show makes me a target," said Adams, the former host of Discovery Health's Plastic Surgery: Before and After.

The autopsy on the 58-year-old West concluded that she died of heart failure. Although "there was no evidence of a surgical or anesthetic misadventure," the report found that "multiple post-operative factors could have played a role."

"As far as I'm concerned,....at least the autopsy report suggests nothing went on during surgery, nothing went on during recovery," Adams told King.

Adams told King that Kanye West has not contacted him "recently," but that lawyers for the rapper's family have been in touch. He refused to discuss Donda West's case in detail, citing patient-doctor confidentiality.

This is not the doctor's first appearance on Larry King Live, but it was his most successful – Adams walked off the show back in November, claiming that the West family had asked him not to speak.

'House' star Hugh stays in character on rare trip home to London


He's become a household name in America thanks to his portrayal of grumpy medical genius Doctor Gregory House, and it seems Hugh Laurie hadn't quite shaken off his character's world-weary air as he returned to British shores recently. The 48-year-old funnyman was set faced and distracted as photographers snapped him strolling on Hampstead Heath near his North London home with wife Jo Green and the family's chocolate Labrador.

The writers' strike in Hollywood means Hugh has been enjoying a break from filming hit series House in LA where he often cuts a lonely figure.

The father of three has often complained he sees too little of his family, but has so far resisted moving them to LA as he doesn't want to interrupt the youngsters' schooling. Instead they communicate for the most part by digital webcam. "Now they're teenagers and they've got their own life and it's tough to drag them out," he's explained.

For the last three years Hugh has worked 12- to 14-hour days on set for nine months of the year, jumping on a plane whenever he can to visit Jo, his wife of 18 years, and their three kids, Charlie, Bill and Rebecca.


I believe the technical term is "face like a slapped arse"

Jude combines business with pleasure on Florida shore


Currently topping up his tan in Florida, Jude Law seemed to be enjoying the perfect holiday - lazing on white sands, listening to the radio, reading novels, and sunbathing.

It isn't all work and no play for the Alfie star, though. The actor has also been researching for upcoming film project Repossession Rambo by reading the Eric Garcia sci-fi novel on which the project is based.

In the futuristic movie, which will hit screens in 2009, Jude plays a man who buys an artificial heart on credit - and then goes on the run to avoid it being repossessed. He'll star alongside Love In The Time Of Cholera star Liev Schreiber and Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker.

Britney Spears has reportedly been banned from the 50th Anniversary of the Grammy Awards. Recent sightings of the troubled star at Hollywood’s Millennium Dance Studio, where she is said to be rehearsing for her new music video, had sparked speculation that the fallen pop star may have been a performance for the February 10th ceremony. No dice says, the New York Daily News. “Britney is banned from the building,” an NYDN spywitness reports.

Katie flashes new tattoo

She may have had a boob-reduction but Jordan is keeping things glamorous by having a brand new tattoo etched on the back of her neck.

The 29-year-old mother-of-three is said to have had the colourful design in honour of her children - although she has kept mum about what the symbols actually mean.

Jordan's tattoo seems to include a H and J for sons Harvey and Junior and a mystery G... and no P for newborn Princess Tiáamii

Her new body work was spotted as she and husband Peter Andre strolled through Brisbane airport, where the couple have been filming their reality TV show over the last month.

The pair also gave photographers a rare glance of seven-month-old Princess Tiáamii, the latest addition to the family.

The adorable tot had her parents all to herself as there was no sign of big brothers Junior or Harvey.

Jordan, who is also rumoured to have recently had a nose job, seemed to be morphing into her more sedate alter ego Katie Price, but the new tattoo proves that she can still live on the wild side.

NEW YORK (CBS) ― New evidence has surfaced in the investigation into the sudden and shocking death of Oscar-nominated actor Heath Ledger, who was found dead inside his SoHo apartment on Tuesday afternoon.

Sources close to the investigation tell CBS 2's Investigative Reporter Scott Weinberger that along with the prescription drugs that were found in the apartment, police also recovered a $20 bill with narcotic residue on it.
Sources add they also found several drug packets containing an unknown substance. CBS 2 has learned these items were all listed on the official police report from the scene.

To be clear, it's still unknown whether these items belonged to Ledger or whether he even actually ingested them.

Ben Affleck is helping TV titan Oprah Winfrey prompt Americans to stop smoking by talking about the reasons behind his decision to quit after 20 years.

The movie star/director appeared on Winfrey's show on Tuesday, which was aimed at those struggling to give up nicotine.

He revealed he once smoked a pack of cigarettes a day and that became "part of who I was".

Affleck said, "I finally decided to quit smoking when I was gonna have a child. That was the thing that sort of put it over the top for me."

The Pearl Harbor star used hypnosis to kick his habit after best pal Matt Damon urged him to try the method that helped him quit.

Affleck recalls, "You sit in, like, a Barker lounger (chair) and he (hypnotist) sips water and just talks to you for an hour, and explains how nicotine is poison.

"All of a sudden, you thought' 'This is asinine that I've been doing this to myself for all these years.'

"My last cigarette was on November 10th, 2005... I feel a huge difference in my health now that I don't smoke. I feel like I'm in better shape than I was five years ago."

Greenwood + Vedder's scores ineligible for Oscar

Radiohead rocker Jonny Greenwood and Eddie Vedder both missed out on a Best Score Oscar nomination for There Will Be Blood and Into The Wild, because both soundtracks were ruled ineligible.

Many Oscar watchers were left stunned when the rock stars' movie score efforts were seemingly ignored by voters, but Oscar rules left both stars compositions out of the running.

Greenwood's music for There Will Be Blood missed out because officials at the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences decided that a large part of it was not written specifically for the film, which picked up eight Oscar nominations on Tuesday.

A proportion of the soundtrack was taken from Greenwood's Popcorn Superhet Receiver composition, which was commissioned by the BBC, and won him a British Composer Award in 2007.

And Pearl Jam singer Vedder's soundtrack for Sean Penn's Into The Wild was also deemed ineligible for an Academy Award nomination - because the score is too "song-based".

Mortensen rules out crossing Oscar picket line


Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen will refuse to cross picket lines to attend the Academy Awards, if striking writers protest at next month's Oscars.

Mortensen, who on Tuesday received a Best Actor nomination for his performance in Eastern Promises, desperately wants to attend Hollywood's premier awards show on 24 February, but not if Writers Guild Of America members are still on strike.

He says, "If there's a strike I will not go, but I have a feeling they'll solve it. I hope they do. I'm sure my mom would like to see me on TV."

Lindsay Defends "I Know Who Killed Me"


Lindsay Lohan and her film, "I Know Who Killed Me," have earned a total of nine Razzie nominations for being the worst of the worst. Lindsay, playing twins in the film, managed to snag two nominations--worst actress and worst supporting actress. Despite that, the black-legging'd one feels that her performance in the film was by far, one of the best of her career. Sadly, it will take more than wearing a pair of Jack Nicholson sunglasses to validate that assertion.

She is especially proud of the collaborative effort she and director, Chris Sivertson, made on the project. "The script is amazing, the director is incredible and I am so proud of the work we have done together." Granted, Lindsay hasn't mentioned whether or not she's actually taken a look at the film since getting sober.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Hours after Heath Ledger’s untimely death, crew members on the Vancouver set of his new fantasy adventure movie, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, were sent home, a source tells Us.

“I just got the call [Tuesday] saying everyone was being let go,” the on-set source tells Usmagazine.com. “We were supposed to start this weekend, but obviously they fired everyone today.

“They don’t know yet what they are doing with the footage that was already shot,” the source adds.

Ledger was on a break from filming when he died Tuesday. Shooting had begun in London last December. He was last photographed on set Jan. 19.

“Right now, everyone is in complete shock and can’t even speak,” the on-set source says.

The movie co-starred singer Tom Waits.

A rep for the movie’s production could not be reached.

    sad R.I.P Heath :(

(no subject)

MICHELLE Williams' father Larry has told The Daily Telegraph online from his Sydney base today that Heath Ledger's death has left his family broken hearted.

He described the 28-year-old as a "great talent" who was devoted to his two-year-old daughter Matilda.

"I think Tennyson got it right in the poem when he described someone as having died at a young age but burning the candles at both ends, and oh what a beautiful flame he made, that was Heath, what a beautiful flame he made and a great talent."

"My heart goes out to everyone in his family and my family."

The worst aspect of Ledger's untimely death was that Matilda will grow up without knowing her father, Williams said.

"The saddest thing is his daughter whom he just loved dearly."

He declined to comment about Ledger's state of mind in the lead up to his death.
American actor Charlize Theron also expressed her concern for Ledger's family.

"It's really, really sad. I hope his family is okay. I wish them the best," she told the entertainment website ET.com.
In speculating on the cause of Ledger's death, actor Dennis Hopper told ET: "That's terrible. Drugs today ... when we stopped taking drugs, they started. It is just an epidemic. I am sorry to hear that. He was a great talent."


Tony tires of Jessica

Just when it seemed like Jessica Simpson and her quarterback hunk Tony Romo might not go the distance, the two were spotted cavorting together on a seemingly romantic hunting trip over the weekend in Texas.

But now OK! has learned all might not be well just yet as insiders say the trip was a last-ditch effort to save their relationship.

On Jan. 17, Tony called Jessica at her L.A. home to try to break things off. "He said he thought it was better if they went back to being friends," a pal of the singer tells OK!. "'Just friends' is not in Jessica's vocabulary, and she is not a victim. She knows how bad this will look in the media."

But according to the pal, Jessica refused to give up, and so Tony invited her on what he thought would be the worst date of her life: a hunting trip! "It's Tony's way of punishing Jess," laughs her friend. "Jessica Simpson hunting — and without her entourage? Forget it!"

Only time will tell if these two will make it. But according to an insider,"Tony has finally started to realize how high-maintenance Jessica is," says her friend. "We're talking diva status. She comes with an entourage, and that includes her dad, Joe Simpson. What's not to love?"

Pete Swears He's Off Drugs, and Talks of Times with Amy

" English rocker Pete Doherty is painting a pretty picture of himself, in a bid to enter the US music biz.

The musician insists that he no longer is the same person that he used to be, and that he has left all his bad vices behind.

"Obviously I'm off the drugs now," the Sun reported him as telling Spin mag.

He goes on to explain that his public persona is "nothing more than a horrible, cartoon-like monster that bears no relation to the quiet, shy, retiring, teetotal, police-loving, clean-nosed poet you see before you now".

However, even though Pete says he's clean, the mag claimed his nine-bedroom home in Marlborough, Wilts was stinking to high heaven.

"There are kittens everywhere. The stench is overwhelming. You have to be careful where you step," the mag said.

It seems that Pete's house does not even have beds, just floorboards and plenty of stained sheets, and as the mag stated, it was no surprise that singer Amy Winehouse and her grubby hubby Blake Fielder-Civil felt right at home there.

Pete says they used to visit him and have a "few drinkies and crisps" and "a bit of a singsong".

"She had me in tears when I'd just split with me missus, singing at me with this amazing voice of hers," the mag reported him as saying.

The Babyshambles front man also claimed to be writing a book, something about a "sizzling gypsy tale, a rambling, shambling melody of a novel that came about when I was still on the fighting juice. Fascinating stuff." "

Jack Nicholson on Heath Ledger's death

JACK NICHOLSON says he cautioned HEATH LEDGER before his fellow Joker actor’s death.

The movie legend was dining at the Wolseley restaurant last night when a snapper told him about Heath’s passing.

Jack, in town to promote new movie The Bucket List, replied “I warned him” then later told a fan “I told him so”.

The photographer told The Sun: “Jack came out and the first thing everyone wanted to tell him was about was Heath.

“He looked a bit bemused and I wasn’t certain he even knew who Heath was.

“But when he said he ‘warned’ Ledger it was definitely eerie.”



There's a short video of Jack being papped and talking to the press at the source page.

Warned him about what? About the strain playing the Joker could put on one's mental state? idk :/



No Change in Britney Spears' Visitation Rights

Britney Spears failed to win back visitation rights of her two children, Sean Preston and Jayden James, at her emergency custody hearing at L.A. Superior Court today.

"The previous custody orders under which Britney Spears has no access to the children remains in effect," L.A. County Court Public Information Officer Alan Parachini said after the quick hearing. "Ms Spears has no custody or visitation rights at this moment."

A mohawked Kevin Federline showed up shortly after Spears, who "arrived at 9:15 to a predetermined place in courthouse," Parachini said.

"After going through weapons screening she indicated to the deputies that she wanted to leave," Parachini added. "One of the lawyers left the building with Ms. Spears. It doesn't appear that she is coming back."

Parachini said both sides presented arguments and were heard by court.

The next hearing is slated for February 4.

Winehouse In Tears Over Video


After disturbing pictures of Amy Winehouse appeared in Monday's Sun, worried pals in London have rallied around the singer — fearing they are losing their friend.

Amy fooled the press yesterday when she turned up at her doctor's office all dolled up, leading people to think she had finally gone to rehab. Instead, the Back to Black singer was actually visiting her doctor for her regular epilepsy and drug-counseling consultations.

A close friend of Amy's told PageSix.com, "Things have clearly gotten really bad. I have spoken to Amy and she is aware of everything going on around her. She hasn't lost it, but she's been in tears since these pictures came out and is truly ashamed and is trying to put on a brave face." Amy was due to go to rehab earlier this month but according to our sources kept using the stress of husband Blake Fielder-Civil's imprisonment as an excuse not to go. The friend added, "Amy knows she's an addict, but she won't get help. We hope this will be her wake-up call, we really do."

We're told that Blake knows about the recent newspaper reports about his wife, and feels helpless. According to our sources Blake has been clean since his incarceration in November, when he was denied bail on witness-tampering charges.

Friends fear it's now or never for Amy. "Everyone is so devastated, we feel we are slowly losing Amy," her friend said. "We wake everyday and feel it's the last day we'll every spend with her. We hope this is never the case."

Phish front man spends 3 days in jail

FORT EDWARD - NewsChannel 13 has learned that former Phish front man Trey Anastasio recently spent some more time behind bars in Washington County.

Anastasio avoided jail time last year by pleading guilty to a felony drug charge. The 42-year-old guitarist and singer admitted to driving while under the influence of drugs in Whitehall in December 2006 and was sentenced to participation in Washington County's drug court program.

NewsChannel 13 has learned that the rocker, who now lives in Saratoga Springs, was sanctioned by the drug court last week and ordered to spend three days in the Washington County Jail.

A participant in drug court can be sanctioned and sent to jail for a number of reasons, including failing to show up for the program, showing up intoxicated or failing a court-ordered drug test.

Anastasio admitted to being under the influence of drugs and alcohol when he was pulled over by Whitehall police. He had Vicodin, Percocet, Xanax and heroin in his car.

Britney's Pap Pal: Our Relationship Is 'Far From Over'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The same day that his wife filed for separation, photogapher Adnan Ghalib took to the airways Tuesday to discuss his relationship with Britney Spears.

Despite reports of a split – and seemingly false claims that Spears had taken out a restraining order against him – Ghalib told Entertainment Tonight and The Insider that the relationship is "far from over." (Indeed, the two were spotted together that night.)

He also insisted that he wasn't paid for the two-part interview and that he didn't get involved with Spears as a way to sell pictures. "No, never," he said. "In time I think people will understand that."

Asked if he wants to marry Spears, the paparazzo, 35, responded, "I'd be lying if I said no."

Scandal Prone
Ghalib – who said their relationship "turned romantic" before Christmas – also took the opportunity to weigh in on the series of scandals that have plagued the pop star, 26, in recent weeks.

On her hospitalization following a Jan. 3 standoff with police: "She didn't understand why she was taken to the hospital," he said. "She didn't feel the need to be there." As for the photographs of Spears laughing as she was wheeled out on a gurney, "I think she was just afraid of what was going to happen. It doesn't mean you are crazy."

On Spears being photographed buying a pregnancy test: "She has a very maternal instinct," Ghalib said of their recent Rite Aid run. (Photos of the trip were sold by his own photo agency, FinalPixx.) "She was feeling a lot of things she said she felt when she was pregnant. I think she was hoping she was pregnant with my child."

On losing visitation rights with her kids Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1: "Her primary focus is on re-establishing a relationship with [them]," he said. "She doesn't talk about a strategy to get them back. That's something that's very private to her. She loves those kids – it pains her a lot "

On Britney's mental state: "She is not crazy at all," he said, despite reports claiming that she is bipolar and has suffered from postpartum depression. (Some have even suggested she may have multiple personalities.) He also dismissed talk that Spears wrote a suicide note before her January meltdown. "She never has suicidal tendencies," he said. "You've got to understand the love she has for her kids outweighs anything else."

The Spice Girls have each pocketed £10 million from their 17-night run of sell-out gigs at the O2, we can reveal.

The reunited pop group played their final London gig in the former Millennium Dome in Greenwich last night before heading to Manchester today.

The unprecedented success of the concerts has left Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell dividing £50 million.

It is thought to be one of the most lucrative stretches of gigs for any group performing in Britain, with nearly 400,000 people paying up to £75 to see them. The women will have profited more than other artists to have played at the arena because they have commanded a higher than average ticket sales for a multiple night run.

Heath Ledger On Entertainment Weekly Cover


Heath Ledger: 1979-2008

Excerpt from the article: “The tragedy struck in the midst of an already hectic day in the entertainment industry, as Hollywood reacted to the morning’s announcement of the Oscar nominations and the latest buzz emanating from Sundance. But word spread with lightning speed via cell phones and BlackBerries, and in nearly every case was met with disbelief. One high-ranking studio exec, after receiving an e-mail stating that Ledger was dead, quickly wrote back: ‘What — you mean his career?’ Charlize Theron learned the news while walking a red carpet at Sundance. Josh Hartnett was blindsided at a Sundance Q&A by a question about Ledger’s death; he struggled to answer even as the crowd jeered the man who had asked it. The passing of an actor in his prime — he earned his first Oscar nomination at age 26 for Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain and was just months away from reinventing the Joker in the highly anticipated Batman Begins sequel, The Dark Knight — seemed too shocking to absorb at first, while at the same time painfully familiar. Within minutes of the story breaking, some 300 entertainment reporters, cameramen, photographers, and fans began to descend on Ledger’s building, creating a tableau that resembled a grisly perversion of a movie premiere. Bystanders snapped photos on cellphones and paparazzi climbed the fire escape of the building across the street hoping for shots into Ledger’s fourth-floor loft. ‘It’s crazy — he was so young,’ said one stunned observer.”

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has been dealt a serious blow to its talent roster as "Donald Trump's wrestler" Bobby Lashley has apparently quit the promotion, and is working on getting a release from the company. In an EXCLUSIVE report published today on popular pro wrestling news site Wrestling News Desk.Com, it was noted that according to several sources inside WWE, Lashley had a conversation with World Wrestling Entertainment Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis recently and asked for a release.
Laurinaitis took the matter to WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, who several sources have said is angry with Lashley over the fact Lashley complained loudly about his Wrestlemania payoff. Sources state that McMahon approved giving Lashley a conditional release (conditions not yet known), and that McMahon and Lashley have not discussed the situation yet.  Several sources within World Wrestling Entertainment say the fallout with Lashley started with his discontent over his Wrestlemania payoff, and his issues with several agent/producers, most notably Michael Hayes.  www.wrestlingnewsdesk.com editor Matthew Cooper stated, "Inside WWE, the spin is that Lashley's relationship with Krystal (former Smackdown personality Krystal Marshall) is the key to everythng, but we've also gotten reports that Lashley has been very unhappy with WWE for a long time."
On Monday, several fans  in the Forums section of a Lashley fansite were debating when Lashley would return, when without warning, Lashley came on the Forum and wrote the following:
I am sorry to everyone here but I am serious when I say I won't be back. Everyone wants to come here and hear the real story and I am telling you the real story. Circumstances which are out of my control left me no decision but to leave the WWE. I can't go into details of this now but like I said before sometimes people will hate you personally and try to destroy you which has happened here. Evil has prevailed however like I said before if you continue your struggle doors will open around these people. You have not scene the last of me so please don't stop your support. Add Bobby Lashley to the list of RECENTLY RELEASED!

Paris Hilton Blogs On MySpace


Paris Hilton has written her first blog on the new year on her MySpace page. She’s the happiest she’s even been in her entire life! Here’s what the hotel heiress had to say (or had to say through an assistant):

“Hey everyone! Hope you all had an amazing new year so far. I have, and I’ve never been happier. Last night we had the first screening of my movie The Hottie and the Nottie in Dallas, Texas, at the Regent Park Theater. It was so exciting to be watching it for the first time with a live audience and the response was incredible. It made me so very happy and proud to be a part of such an amazing project. It’s a hilarious film with both a beautiful message and a fun love story…it’s the perfect date movie!

My co-stars Joel David Moore, Christine Lakin, and Johann Urb are not only great actors and perfect for their characters, but are close friends as well. I had the best time on set and will never forget my time working with them. Joel, my love interest in the film, is probably one of the funniest human beings on the planet–he is such a natural comedian. I could hardly keep a straight face during scenes because he was always using improv and saying the craziest, most outlandish things. Christine, who plays “The Nottie,” is one of the sweetest girls I know and is such a talented actress. Plus, I give her major props for having to go through three hours of hair and makeup a day to look the way she did for her character. Finally, Johann is not only one of the most beautiful men I’ve ever laid eyes on, but is also very down-to-earth and intelligent. He was a pleasure to work with on set and was a great singer, just to give you a little insight on my peeps :)

So back to last night at the premiere: after we screened the movie, we had an afterparty at The Ghost Bar, the new hotspot in Dallas at the W Hotel. It was a beautiful club and everyone had a great time. I was there with my friends from the up-and-coming band, “Forever the Sickest Kids”–check them out on their MySpace page at www.myspace.com/foreverthesickestkids . They are six musicians from Texas…I love their music and they are such sweet guys!

I hope you all like my new MySpace page–I plan to write more often now that I have the new setup…Well, I have to go now because I’m on my way to Philadelphia for another private screening of my movie. I can’t wait to hear from you all, and check back soon for more updates!

Love you all!

Jennifer Hudson's Album Scrapped

Jennifer Hudson's Album Scrapped & Sent Back To Square One

With the monster success of Dreamgirls at the end of 2006, and Jennifer Hudson's Oscar/Emmy wins in early 2007, the remainder of the year was supposed to be all hers. The ex-American Idol standout was supposed to release her debut album months ago but it turns out the album had been scrapped at the request of Clive Davis.

Word is the album was delayed because the label folks didn't think the material would sell in today's market. Ryan Tedder of One Republic wrote a few songs for Hudson, and shared his knowledg about the hold up.

"“They made half an album and ended up scrapping it. Clive — wisely, I think — said, ‘No one’s going to buy this. We’re trying to turn her into Aretha Franklin, and that’s not realistic,’ ” Tedder said. “They scrapped a bunch of songs and started fresh. I heard a Timbaland song that was by far the best song she’s done. I do wish, and I know the label wishes, that this album had come out six months ago. But Clive’s smart. He didn’t want to just put out a crap album just because of the momentum."

“Clubs are just not where I want to be photographed,” adds country singer Taylor Swift, 18.

She also says she realizes the impact her actions could have on her younger fans.

“I never want to be arrested, and I never want to get a DUI,” Swift says. “Those are my moral values. I am an over-achiever, and I want to be known for the good things in my life."

Childhood star-turned-teen queen Raven-Symone obeys a rule: “I like to be in by 1 or 2 a.m. because [you can get in more trouble] at night. Anytime really, but the night scares me sometimes.”

Miley Cyrus, 15 — Hollywood's No. 1. power girl — offered this tip to today’s troubled young stars.

“The most important thing is really staying true to yourself,” she tells Us. “That’s what my mom taught me. She’s the most beautiful girl, not only on the outside but on the inside. She’s teaching me how to be a good person.”

And let the insanity commence: Denise Richards reality tv show given the go ahead.

Denise Richards has been given the go-ahead to start production of a reality television show documenting her life as a celebrity mum.

Denise’s ex-husband Charlie Sheen had refused to give authorisation for daughters Sam and Lola to appear in the television show but the court presiding over the couple’s ongoing bitter custody dispute has ruled that the children can be featured, but with certain restrictions.

During yesterday’s closed hearing, the project was given the green light and despite specific ground rules governing the three year old and two year old’s appearance on the show, Denise was said to be “very happy” with the court’s decision.

Hai ONTD: Suggested titles anyone!? I kind of want it to be a soapbox for her insane rants about Charlie, but then I look at the babies and think no :(

Australian actors talk about Heath.

CATE Blanchett says she is in shock at the death of fellow Australian actor Heath Ledger in New York, while Geoffrey Rush says the news is a tragedy.

Ledger was found dead in a New York apartment earlier today, after an apparent drug overdose.
Blanchett, whose nominations in the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress categories were announced this morning, co-starred with Ledger in the Bob Dylan biopic I’m Not There.

“I am shocked and very saddened by the news,” Blanchett said in a statement to NEWS.com.au.

“I deeply respect Heath’s work and always admired his continuing development as an artist.

“My thoughts are with his family and close friends.”

Rush, who acted with Ledger in the Australian film Candy, has said the young star's death is a tragedy.

"This is such a sad event. I admired Heath enormously," Rush has said. "He was such a sensitive and committed and daring actor. This is truly a tragedy."

Neil Armford, who directed Candy, has said Ledger had plenty of stunning performances left in him.

"Heath was one of the greatest actors of his generation and was far from being a victim of the fame machine.

"Heath was an intensely private but intensely loving human being – a complex mixture of shyness and gregariousness. He was a young man with an incalculable number of great performances waiting to be created."

Joel Edgerton, who worked with Ledger on Ned Kelly, said: "Heath was an exceptional human being with a massive heart: always generous, adventurous and impressive.

"I always believed, as a young man, he was wise well beyond his years. And as far as his work goes, I know I'm not alone in thinking he was just getting started to realise an incredible potential.

"It really is a sad day. An incredible shock."

Helena Christensen, who dated Ledger, has told US fashion paper Women’s Wear Daily: "I am just beyond sad at this point and shocked. I was on my way over to pay him a visit when I found out.

"I had just left him a message and heard his voice on the machine. He was such a special and genuine person, so extraordinarily talented because he was so raw and honest with his feelings.

"He was so full of life, so electric.... This is immensely sad."

Cameron and Eva's Fart-Off

Cam and Eva causing a stink

Published: 23 Jan 2008

THIS brings a whole new meaning to the game Top Trumps.

Latino beauty EVA MENDES has revealed how she once challenged movie pal CAMERON DIAZ to a FARTING competition.

And here's me thinking they were such reserved ladies.

Gorgeous Eva went to Nepal with Cameron for an MTV show and confessed they stayed up in their hotel room breaking wind all night.

Eva recalls: "Cameron is a big old belcher, but I can't belch.

"One night I had a heavy dinner, so I combated her belching with something I could do.

"We were in side-by-side beds, so it was her disgusting bodily function versus mine.

"It was an Eva-Cameron fart-belch off."

How pleasant.


VH1 Reviews DISCIPLINE & Mariah


Yesterday, Def Jam honcho L.A. Reid invited a group of journalists into his office to play tracks from Janet Jackson’s upcoming album Discipline (due out Feb. 26). Janet fans worried that the absence of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (her longtime producers who’ve been shaping her sound since 1986’s Control) should fear not: the combination of pillowy, multi-tracked harmonies and virtually non-stop dance tracks results in an album that out-Janets Janet. Easily her most dance-oriented album since Rhythm Nation 1814 (and possibly her most dance-oriented album ever), Discipline is the album so many fans have been waiting for. Below are our impressions of the nine tracks Reid played:

1. “Luv” - An extended automotive metaphor (red lights/headlights imagery, the line: “He hit me with his love”) makes this like a bumper-car rink for Janet’s vocals, which bounce her constant refrain of “Luv, luv, luv, luv…” all over the place. Vocally, it’s hyper like the chorus of Chris Brown’s “With You,” but musically, it sounds like a Southern-fried sequel to Kanye West’s “Good Life.” Reid played this one twice and after the second time, there was some murmuring about it being the next single. Commercially, that would make a lot of sense.

2. “Feedback” - The single, duh. It has a house beat, but it’s the least house-y of the other 4/4 tracks. Oh yeah, Janet goes there. Also, I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to hear Janet sing about her period amongst fine wood office furniture and expensive candles. A moment to remember, for sure.

Devastated Lindsay: "I loved him"

Heath Ledger's death has shocked and unnerved yet another high-profile celebrity .

Sources close to Lindsay Lohan revealed exclusively to E! Online special correspondent Tina Dirmann that the actress was devastated by the news.

"I loved him," she told friends, adding that she had also talked to him as recently as this week, and the two were going to see each other on Friday.

"They had plans to meet this weekend, because Lindsay was going to be in New York," a source revealed to Dirmann. "So, news of his unfortunate passing has hit her especially hard."

Those around Lindsay speculate that she is also so affected by his passing because of her own battle with drug use and depression.

"Let's just say, she could really relate to his situation," another Lindsay pal told Dirmann. "She used to be there, and I think that probably scared her."

And he tells Ashlee so.” “He thinks nobody can manage his daughters’ careers, or love lives, better than he can.”

Joe has even been coaxing Ashlee to dump Pete in hopes of finding her a more suitable love-the reality tv show way. But don’t expect Joe’s pouting to bulldoze Ash and Pete’s love affair anytime soon:

“She’s not like Jessica. Dad doesn’t like her boyfriend? So what. She doesn’t care. She’s been that way since she was 16 years old.”


Save Britney Spears: Scantily Clad School Visit Freaks Out Kids

A detailed story in this week's us Weekly magazine won't help that much as the magazine is reporting that on January 7 a source tells the "Hot Stuff" section of the magazine that the "scantily clad" pop star showed up at a Beverly Hills elementary school, saying she was there to pick up someone else’s kids.


According to the report the singer parked her car outside the school just before 3 p.m. and spent 10 minutes smoking cigarettes and talking to herself while she waited for classes to let out. “She was just rambling and confused,” says the witness, who approached Spears to ask if she was OK. “She said, ‘I’m here to pick up my kids.’

Next the report notes that Britney then changed her story and said, ‘They aren’t my kids; I have a new
attorney, and I came to pick them up for her.’ ” Adds the witness, “All I could think was, Who in their right mind would let her pick up their kids?”


As children began to leave for the day, the star, 26, caused a commotion — “It became the talk of the school. Some of the kids were freaked out,” says a school source. She was then directed to a more secure entrance around back.

But before getting into her car and driving off (without any children), she chatted up the female witness:  “She said, ‘You’re so nice. You should give me your number. I don’t have very many friends.’ ” That much is certainly true.

Lost interview with Heath

Lost Interview Depicts Ledger In Disturbing Light
Troubled Actor Looked And Sounded Edgy, Uncomfortable

video here: http://wcbstv.com/video/?id=107498@wcbs.dayport.com

heath ledger

NEW YORK (CBS) ― Here's a more candid look at Heath Ledger the person, and what he was really like.

CBS 2 HD's Scott Rapoport spoke one on one with the actor back in December 2005 about his movie "Casanova."

The lost interview is even more eye-opening in light of Ledger's tragic death in New York City on Tuesday.

Jumpy, fidgety and biting his nails …

"Oh, that's cool. I'm glad you enjoyed it," Ledger said when told "Casanova" was a fine flick.

That was the Ledger Rapoport found when he sat down with him two years ago to talk about his new movie "Casanova."

Scott Rapoport: "So they come to you and say we'd like you to play the world's greatest lover. Your response?"

Heath Ledger: "Ummm, that. Ummm."

At times, Ledger was almost non verbal. At other times ... rambling.

Heath Ledger: "You know ... I'd just come off working three or four really heavy films and heavy characters ... loaded with emotions ... and ... um ... uh ... you know ... emotions ... and it was very tough ... exhausting ... and it became a tool for me to unwind ... um ... from the experiences that had wound me up so tightly."

Ledger appeared uncomfortable that day, confined and twitchy.

He told Rapoport he'd been drinking red wine. There was a bottle of it in the interview room. It was 3 p.m.

At the time, Ledger had been riding high for his critically acclaimed performance in "Brokeback Mountain," so shooting "Casanova" -- with Sienna Miller and Oliver Platt -- in Venice was almost like a working holiday.

Scott Rapoport: "They couldn't find some place good to go?"

Heath Ledger: "I know. Venice. This is tough …"

Scott Rapoport: "Is it something of an ego boost to play something like this? Or is it sort of professional? Because you have to realize for a lot of people you're living every guy's dream.

Ledger: "Well ... that's uh ... I mean look, we're acting ... I mean, when you're playing a mass murderer are you really murdering people? Know what I mean? You're acting.

Ledger at the time was an actor at the top of his game, with a world of limitless possibilities before him -- two years before his shocking death.

Scott Rapoport: "Very nice to meet you."

Heath Ledger: "Thank you. Nice to meet you, too."

It was one five-minute interview, a five-minute peek into a person's life.

There is no escaping how jumpy and jittery Ledger was during the interview. Perhaps a reason for that -- a chronic lack of sleep -- could account for his restlessness.

Ledger told the New York Times back in November he suffered from insomnia.

He said he'd recently tried a sleeping pill, which didn't work, so he took some more.

Police Give Precise New Details on Ledger Death/Mary-Kate Olsen Connection

Updated, 6:10 p.m.

The masseuse who discovered the body of Heath Ledger in a Manhattan apartment on Tuesday twice called a friend of his, the actress Mary-Kate Olsen, before calling 911, New York City police officials said on Wednesday. The officials, who provided new details about Mr. Ledger’s death, emphasized that no illegal drugs were found in the apartment and that there were no obvious signs of suicide. Tests on a rolled-up $20 bill that was found in the apartment found no evidence that the bill had been used to handle drugs, they said.

According to the police, around 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, a housekeeper, Teresa Solomon, arrived at the apartment, at 421 Broome Street in SoHo, to do household chores. At about 1 p.m., she went into Mr. Ledger’s bedroom to change a light bulb in an adjacent bathroom; she found him on the bed face down, with the sheet pulled up to his shoulders, and heard him snoring.

A masseuse, Diana Wolozin, arrived to give Mr. Ledger a massage about 2:45 p.m. At 3 p.m., after Mr. Ledger did not emerge from his bedroom, with the door closed, the masseuse called him on his cellphone but got no answer. She entered the bedroom and saw him lying in bed. She took a massage table out of the closet and began to set it up near his bed. She then went over to him and shook him, but got no response. Using his cellphone, she used a speed-dial button to call Ms. Olsen in California to seek her guidance, knowing Ms. Olsen to be a friend of Mr. Ledger’s.

According to the authorities, Ms. Wolozin told Ms. Olsen that Mr. Ledger was unconscious. Ms. Olsen said she would call some private security people she knew in New York, and hung up. Ms. Wolozin again shook Mr. Ledger, called Ms. Olsen a second time, and said she believed the situation was grave and would call 911.

Ms. Wolozin called 911 at 3:26 p.m. to say that Mr. Ledger was not breathing. The call occurred less than 15 minutes since she had first seen him in bed and only a few moments after the first call to Ms. Olsen. The 911 operator urged Ms. Wolozin to try to revive Mr. Ledger, but Ms. Wolozin’s efforts were not successful.

Emergency medical workers arrived at 3:33 p.m., at almost exactly the same moment as a private security guard summoned by Ms. Olsen. The medical workers moved his body to the floor and then used a defibrillator and CPR, to no avail. Mr. Ledger was pronounced dead at 3:36 p.m. By that point, two other private security guards summoned by Ms. Olsen had arrived, as had police officers.

The police said that all five witnesses — Ms. Solomon, the housekeeper; Ms. Wolozin, the masseuse; and the three private security guards summoned by Ms. Olsen — were fully cooperating with the authorities.

The police conducted tests on a rolled-up $20 bill found in Mr. Ledger’s apartment, but found no evidence that the bill had been used for anything improper. No illegal narcotics or alcohol was found in the apartment. Prescription sleeping pills were found near the body, but it is not known if the medication played a role in his death.

The police said they were looking to examine any surveillance videos from the apartment building and the surrounding area but were also awaiting the results of an investigation by the New York City chief medical examiner. The office conducted an autopsy early Wednesday morning but said that the results were inconclusive and that additional testing was needed.

lil wayne gets arrested

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

PHOENIX -- Rapper Lil Wayne was arrested on three felony drug charges early Wednesday after federal agents said they found illegal drugs including cocaine on his charter bus at a checkpoint in southwestern Arizona.

Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was being held at the Yuma County Sheriff's jail on state drug charges, Capt. Eben Bratcher said.

Carter appeared via video arraignment late Wednesday morning in a justice court in Wellton, 35 miles east of Yuma.

James Tilson, a local attorney retained by Carter, said his client was not formally charged and his next court date was scheduled for Jan. 25.

"We will find out by Jan. 25 whether or not the (Yuma) county attorney will file charges or not," Tilson said. "He is looking forward to his day in court. That's all I can say right now."

His bond was set at $10,185. Tilson said they were working on his release.

The 25-year-old faces charges of possession of dangerous drugs, narcotics and drug paraphernalia.

Bratcher said Carter's bus was stopped at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday at a Border Patrol checkpoint near Dateland, Ariz., 78 miles east of Yuma.

Drug Enforcement Administration spokeswoman Ramona Sanchez said a Border Patrol canine unit alerted agents to the presence of illegal drugs on the bus. A search yielded nearly four ounces of marijuana, just over an ounce of cocaine, 41 grams of Ecstacy and miscellaneous drug paraphernalia and DEA agents then arrested Carter.

Officials also found a .40-caliber pistol registered to Carter, who has a concealed weapons permit in Florida. Authorities are looking into whether he violated any weapons laws in Arizona.

Carter, who was traveling with 11 others, was heading east, likely coming from California.

Two other men were arrested with him, Bratcher said. They each face a charge of possession of marijuana.

In October, Carter and several other rappers were named in a federal lawsuit filed by music publishing companies, accusing them of sampling other artists' songs without paying licensing fees.

Rapper Birdman and Lil Wayne won a viewers' choice award for their song "Stuntin' Like My Daddy" at Black Entertainment Television's 2007 Hip-Hop Awards.

Heath Ledger is set to be buried in his home town of Perth, Australia. The actor's body was transported today from the New York medical examiner's office, where an autopsy was performed this morning, to the Frank E. Campbell funeral chapel.

A source at the funeral home tells PageSix.com that they are preparing to ship Heath's body as soon as possible. Although the actor’s family is still believed to be in Australia, his ex-fiancee, Michelle Williams, who is also the mother of his child, was flying into New York from Sweden today.

Michelle Lee, a rep for the Australian consulate, told PageSix.com, “Our consulate has been in contact with his family and has offered assistance” to help fly Heath’s body back to Australia.

Both sides are Korean and non-English speaking, and we're told a translator will be present for the duration of the trial. As a juror, he'll be paid $15.00 a day -- that's at least something during the strike!

emily osment is a BITCH!

Hannah Montana actress Emily Osment revealed to M magazine that fame isn't all it's cracked up to be. Emily, who is super close to her costar Miley Cyrus, said one of her girlfriends even became 'obsessed' with her! Em dished:

"One of the things that's hardest about being in show business is knowing who your real friends are. Like there was a girl I'd known since the seventh grade. I thought she was a good friend of mine. Then everything changed. During the past few years and especially since I started working on Hannah Montana she became obsessed me!

She wouldn't leave me alone. This 'friend' of mine started calling me constantly. And if she wasn't calling, she was texting me. I didn't know how to say to her, 'Please don't talk to me anymore.' In the past, she was a good friend, but now it was just awkward and weird. I had to tell her how I felt. I was like the biggest fight of my life..

..I started by saying right away that I didn't want to be friends with her anymore. She got really mad and demanded to know why. We both just began yelling at each other until there was nothing left to say. She hasn't called or texted me in months, and it's sort of nice."

JLo cancels 'Silent Birth'

Jennifer Lopez has scrapped plans to deliver her first bundle of joy (possibly twin baby bundles) via a Scientology ’silent birth.’ Scientologists are forbidden from using painkillers, or from even making noise, during labor. Jennifer, whose best friend Leah Remini and dad David are Scientologists, had been considering a silent delivery for months, evening undergoing special ‘purification’ lessons to prepare her for a silent birth.

“Jennifer made the decision because she’s high risk at her age,” a celeb informant reveals to The National Enquirer.

“She wanted to leave it in the hands of her doctors whether she should receive painkillers and other drugs during delivery.”

Five Different Drugs Found in Heath's Apartment

TMZ has learned what types of pills were discovered in the apartment where Heath Ledger was found dead.

NYPD sources tell TMZ that nearly full pill bottles containing the anti-anxiety medications Alprazolam (Xanax), Diazepam (Valium), Lorazepam (Ativan) were found in the apartment. The sleeping medication Zoplicone (Lunesta) and the sedative Temazepam (Restoril) -- which is used by people with "debilitating insomnia" -- were also found.

All of the drugs were prescribed to Ledger.

P!nk is scared of the paps

Singer Pink has revealed her fears over the escalating antics of the paparazzi, fearing that no good will come of the fact that photographers are becoming more desperate in their pursuit of the perfect snap. Her comments come two days after four photographers were arrested for dangerous driving after chasing after Britney Spears, though the last time Pink was surrounded by four photographers was probably at a friend's wedding.

Quite why Pink feels that she needs to speak up on this issue is unclear. Maybe she has a new single out? Whatever, it is something that is currently concerning her massive brain and causing that large, heavy forehead to furrow, so it must be reported.

"Before it was kind of silly, how stupid everyone was. Now it's just kind of sad and dark; it's all gone to a totally different place." Photographers going to a different place than Pink? You can't blame them, there'll be nothing interesting for them to see around her, surely?

Mystic Pink then went all other-worldly and made a prediction for the future. A grim and dark future, where words like "vulturous" are allowed to populate sentences without censure or shock.

"I feel like something tragic is going to have to happen for people to wake up and see how vulturous and poisonous it's all gotten."

Number of months since Princess Diana died in a Parisian underpass pursued by photographers? A mere 124. Not that it made the news, or anything.


Shocking, devastating and heartbreaking news

Britney calls the paparazzi herself

Britney “calls the paparazzi before she goes out. We know 15 minutes before she leaves the house,” Brazilian paparazzo Alison Silva says. “It’s all staged.”

Silva, of course, is most famous for getting run over by Keanu Reaves’ black Porsche last year. (Silva ended up in the hospital. Reeves ended up handcuffed, investigated by the LAPD, and sued.)

But Britney’s collusion with the paparazzi has long been talked about inside the industry, as well as on this blog. Not only did her relationship with Finalpixxx’s Adnan Ghalib result in photos worth hundreds of thousands of dollars (which Spears likely saw none of), but she’s also said to be paid by pap agency X17.

And, just taking a guess, but Britney’s probably not the only one who’s got photogs on speed dial.

celebrities were targeted by scientologists

Celebrities were apparently targeted by Scientologists a while back by using clay models...and playing with them...and other crazy/expected stuff - according to Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography

"What the celebrities never realized was that their introduction to Scientology was the result of weeks, sometimes months, of meticulous planning. The first stage was to identify a celebrity target, and then work out a 'battle plan' to lure them into the cult. To help them, dedicated scientologists made clay models of the individuals, Michael Jackson for example, outlining incremental scenarios that would help their planning. By turning the idea into clay, the concept was somehow made 'real.'
On the office wall inside the Celebrity Center in Hollywood was a three-foot-by-six-foot white magnetic 'org board' with the names of targeted celebrities cross-referenced to titles like 'contact,' 'handle,' 'intro session,' and 'org,' which indicated how involved an individual had become. It was a deadly serious business. The staff of the Celebrity Center was under intense pressure to show results."
"[Former scientologist Karen Pressley - the 'commanding officer' at the time] recalls, 'I remember David Miscavige [now the Scientology leader] pounding his fists and screaming threats about getting to more celebrities. It was psychotic.' With sickening regularity, she and her colleagues were warned that if they didn't get a celebrity into Scientology within 48 hours they would face internal discipline."


Also, here's also a quote from Naomi Watts:
"Tom has always been far more into scientology than Nicole. He is somewhat of a fanatic; Nicole never wanted to go that route."

idk if this was posted, or if anyone cares, but I thought it was interesting...and creepy. Mainly creepy. Also, does anyone want me to find some interesting things from the book and just make a post with various things from the book (or if there's anything specific anyone wants me to post about from it)? because I could (since I have no life).

Mischa Barton goes nude

Mischa Barton has been an elusive scamp in recent years, flashing a booby here, a fanny there, but then laughing in our faces, saying, "Haha loser, look at my pasties, look at my flesh-toned undies." But just yesterday Mischa loosened her morals--then loosened her shirt--at Sundance, where her new film, Assassination of a High School President, debuted. In the film she spends over ten minutes in a bathtub, where we see Mischa's breasts three times. This makes the second Mischa nude scene that's making the festival circuit, after Closing the Ring opened at the Toronto fest. Naturally we take our knocker rumors with a grain of salt until we see photographic evidence, but these reports are promising, so until we can sneak our night-vision camera into a screening, use your imagination. What, did you think it was there to conjure up theories about what mysteries will be revealed in the new season of Lost? No, dummy, it's there for conceptualizing chest canons.

Ang Lee Speaks

Ledger death 'heartbreaking' says director Ang Lee

Oscar-winning director Ang Lee paid tribute to "Brokeback Mountain" star Heath Ledger on Wednesday, describing the Australian actor's sudden death as "heartbreaking."

Lee, who coaxed an unforgettable performance from Ledger as the tortured and taciturn gay cowboy Ennis Del Mar in the acclaimed 2005 drama, said working with the 28-year-old actor had been a career highlight.

"Working with Heath was one of the purest joys of my life," Lee said in a statement released to People.com.

"He brought to the role of Ennis (Del Mar) more than any of us could have imagined -- a thirst for life, for love, and for truth, and a vulnerability that made everyone who knew him love him. His death is heartbreaking."

Ledger was found dead in his New York apartment on Tuesday. Initial autopsy results were inconclusive amid speculation the actor died from a drug overdose.

Taiwanese film-maker Lee won the best director Oscar for "Brokeback Mountain" in 2006. Ledger earned an Academy Award acting nomination for his work on the film.

Lee has spoken admiringly of Ledger in the past, even comparing him to a young Marlon Brando, describing the "Brokeback" performance as "miraculous."

"I think it's not only remarkable, it's almost like a miracle," Lee said. "A lot of people told me that his performance reminds them of a young Brando. It's just outstanding," he said.

Disney stars reveal their biggest crushes!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, our fave junior celebs spill on their biggest crushes to J-14! No names though…

Ashley Tisdale:
“In high school, I did like the most popular guy, but then I realized he wasn’t that cool. The most popular guy usually has a big head and he’s into himself just as much as a girl would be. That just turned me off.”

Selena Gomez:
“For three years, I had a crush on my best friend. I’m a guy’s girl, so we’d hang out a lot. I finally told him wh
