Jared Leto is a (sexy) Motorcycle Man

 

Jared Leto mounts his Ducati motorcycle in Malibu, Calif. on Sunday as his friends check out his new bike.


Over the weekend, Leto’s rep slammed a National Enquirer report that Jessica Simpson cheated on Tony Romo with his client.


“There is no truth whatsoever to the article,” Leto’s manager Jason Weinberg tells Us Weekly.

Christian Bale Does ‘Details’

“He was incredibly intense in his performance but incredibly mellow and laid-back. Certainly there was this great anarchistic streak to it — just getting dirtier than anybody’s envisioned the Joker before. Naturally, (the movie) was something I wanted to share with him — and expected to do so. And I can’t do anything else but hope that it will be an absolutely appropriate celebration of his work.”

American Idol: Jason Castro, contestants on Larry King Live tonight

Jason Castro on Larry King Live

Jason Castro sat across from Larry King -- the same spot where the Suspendered One has grilled Frank Sinatra, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Marlon Brando, etc. Jason talked about Paula Abdul's judging gaffe and Simon Cowell's suggestion that he pack his bags.

That was Friday's Larry King Live on CNN. Tonight at 8, the top-10 Idol contestants are back for another hour of interviews.

Larry apparently has a fascination with Idol. Either that, or his producers realize the viewing power of Idol and its performers. Last month, Randy Jackson told Larry that as a record producer he'd pass on Jason. On the same show, Simon said Jason appears to be too carefree.

It kicks off a busy time for Jason, who'll be in Rockwall for his homecoming appearance. Then, he'll get ready for the Idol tour, which starts July 1 in Glendale, Ariz. The tour makes its Dallas stop Aug. 25 at  the American Airlines Center.


***

I like Jason Castro.  He's not technically Idol-Material, but his uniqueness was what the show needed exactly.  I was appalled at how cruel and rude Simon was to him.

Ugly Betty: The Musical?

A Broadway musical version of "Ugly Betty"?

OMG, it makes total sense!

Michael Urie -- who plays camp assistant Marc St. James and appears at left with castmate Becki Newton -- told a British radio station (Heart) that this fantastic idea is turning into a reality.

“They do want to do an "Ugly Betty" musical, a full-on Broadway musical, but it’s all hush-hush. I think it would be great, and they should use the cast from the show. I think we would all do it, although we maybe don’t dance and sing as well as professional singers and dancers. I think it would be fun for us to do it for a while, and then they could get real people in. They definitely want to do an episode that is a musical one, but then they want to do a full stage show. I think it’s a great idea. It would definitely work.”

Memo to Michael: Dude, Vanessa Williams -- your boss on the show? -- is a trained singer-dancer. IMDb her sometime.

The "Ugly Betty" star also told Dean Piper about having Victoria Beckham on the show and David Beckham and their kids on the set.

"I think everyone who worked on the show popped in at some point or another to just look at them because they are so gorgeous. They brought their gorgeous Beckham spawn also. …They are so adorable, the little boys. It was fun. She’s just great. She’s teeny tiny, she’s so hot, and she’s sweet, sweet, sweet! They gave me some Beckham cologne. It was a nice parting gift. She’s the only guest star who’s ever been on the show and given gifts!”

Yeah, but her own cologne? Can you say 'cheesy?'

I fail at staying off ONTD for at least 2 weeks :(



As one grieving relative said, it was “a fairy-tale romance” between one of Britain’s most mesmerising actresses and a leading plastic surgeon, but not all fairy tales end happily. Last Monday Natascha McElhone and Martin Kelly marked the 10th anniversary of a contented marriage blessed by two children. The next day Kelly dropped dead.

Possessing the kind of luminous beauty that inspires awe in women and infatuation in men, McElhone, 36, often declared that since falling in love with Kelly she had become indifferent to the charms of George Clooney, with whom she starred in Solaris, Robert De Niro (Ronin) and Jim Carrey (The Truman Show). “I no longer look at men that way,” she said.

McElhone’s half-French husband was not only 6ft 3in tall, dark and handsome, but his pioneering techniques in cosmetic surgery had won international renown. His skill in reconstructing noses – notably that of Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, the socialite and former cocaine addict – had earned Kelly the sobriquet “the king of rhinoplasty”. He also performed an unsung role in transforming the lives of disfigured Third World children and planning Britain’s first full facial transplant.

Michael Lohan: Lindsay, Sam's Romance "Evident to Anyone With Half a Brain"

Michael Lohan isn't playing dumb when it comes to his daughter Lindsay's close relationship with deejay Samantha Ronson.

Days after photos of them nuzzling necks in Cannes, France, surfaced, he tells Usmagazine.com their romance "is evident to anyone with half a brain."

Still, he adds, "Just like the [topless] Marilyn Monroe spread, Linds is my daughter and there are just some things a father doesn't want to see or hear, regardless of whether they are true or false."

His daughter, 21, "is a big girl, and she can make her own life choices. Then it is between her and God."

Michael — who volunteers for a Christian-based rehab organization — couldn't help but take a swipe at his ex Dina (who just debuted her new E! reality show).

"Maybe her mother's life revolves around the tabloids and reports, but mine doesn't," Michael says. "I am into setting a good example and doing good things that don't deceive or exploit my kids.

"But I will say this: While we were a family, you never even saw or heard a negative thing about any of us.

"But since the separation, look at everything that has happened!"

Australian Olympic Diver comes out



Australian Olympic diver Matthew Mitcham came out to the media for the first time on Saturday, in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald. He'll be the first openly gay athlete from Australia to compete in the Olympics:

"The gold medal hopeful's journey has not been easy. Those close to him have seen Mitcham, 20, battle depression, retire in his teenage years after physical and emotional burn-out, then nine months later resume his sport and build himself into the champion he is today. One person who has been by his side for the entire tumultuous journey is his partner, Lachlan.

'We can't afford for Lachlan to go [to Beijing] at the moment,' Mitcham said. 'But Johnson & Johnson offer grants to go to Beijing and I've nominated Lachlan as the support person I want to go.'

It's not only Lachlan who has helped Mitcham to Beijing. His coach, Chava Sobrino, had faith in him when no one else did and resurrected his career. Former athlete Sarina Bratton cares for him like a son and fellow diver Alex Croak is a constant sounding board and his best friend. 'That little support network has made my dream possible,' Mitcham said. 'It would have been impossible and I probably wouldn't have made it without their help.'"

Blog responds to Sharon Stone comment about China by donating



We will give $10 per comment on this post, up to $1000, to Chinese Earthquake Relief through GlobalGiving.com.

This is in response to the massive outcry against Sharon Stone’s outrageous comment that the devastating earthquake in China, in which 67,000 people are confirmed dead and thousands more missing, was somehow karma against their government. Other commenters, who are very much in the minority, have expressed similar ignorant sentiments that are in no way a reflection of the feelings of the American people or of this website.

Rather than give any more credence to that nonsense, we want to help out any way we can. Please help us donate to Chinese disaster relief by commenting on this post.

You can also make your own donation at GlobalGiving.com.

Update: We are donating to the “Half the Sky Children’s Relief Fund” through GlobalGiving.com. The Half The Sky Children’s Relief Fund website has photos and a blog chronicling of their efforts. They recently visited a primary school that collapsed in which 241 out of 500 children perished.

'Real Housewives' star Jo De La Rosa set to 'Date' again



Jo De La Rosa felt like the black sheep of the original "Real Housewives of Orange County."

Now she's hoping her new dating show for Bravo helps change some of those misconceptions.

Production began last week on the first of eight episodes of "Date My Ex," a dating series with a launch targeted for this summer. The show has potential suitors living in her ex-fiance Slade Smiley's house.

"The new show brings me back down to really what's in my life," she said. "It's not to be taken seriously. I'm not on the show to find a husband."

Followers of the original will recall that of the women on the show, De La Rosa, though living with Smiley, wasn't married, was younger than the others and didn't quite fit in.

"I was in a very different place in my life," she said. "I wasn't in a place of wanting to get married and raise kid. This whole world of diamonds and luxury, I just wasn't in that place. I don't even really like diamonds. I'm not into that stuff, the show really portrayed me as such. At the end of the day, whatever makes good TV is the way they're going to cut it."

De La Rosa appeared in the first two seasons of "Housewives," then left when she moved out of the enclave to Los Angeles to pursue a singing career. That's where the new show picks up, with her in Los Angeles, being helped by two friends in the dating world.

"It's kind of an adventure," she said, "my romantic adventure."

Besides working on the show, De La Rosa has been working on a CD called "Unscripted," which she says hits stores Aug. 19. A single will be released in July near the launch of the series.

De La Rosa said she never expected to be a celebrity and doesn't consider herself one. She initially didn't want to do "Housewives," but Smiley convinced her to go along for the ride.

"Slade really wanted to do it," she said. "Being in love with him, you want to make your boyfriend happy."

De La Rosa and the rest of the women on the show were able to capitalize on the frenzy around wives started by ABC's "Desperate Housewives." In the process, De La Rosa became the vixen of the group, with one episode suggesting she was coming on to the son of another wife, which didn't sit well with all fans.

The new show, she hopes, changes some of the perception fans had.

"You know, no one ever wants to be hated," she said. "I feel like, on the show, people either loved me or they loved to hate me. Either way, they still watched, so it was like their guilty pleasure. I do think they will see a different side of me. ... I hope they love me as a person."

YO SPENCER!

 

YO SPENCER! I met this guy at a bar last week who's sort of a minor celebrity. He's pretty good looking and he was nice enough, but he wasn't my usual type, and if he hadn't been famous I wouldn't have given him the time of day. I ended up going home with him and haven't seen him since. I've been feeling really bad since: I'm a star-fucker! How can I stop feeling so shallow?

Don't be hard on yourself. Sleeping with minor celebrities is a career for a lot of women in Hollywood. Next time just aim for an A-list actor who's in the spotlight.

A.V. Club interviews Joan Cusack



Joan Cusack has long been overshadowed by her more famous brother John Cusack, but there's no evidence that she's ever let it bother her; she's always seemed like a settled, down-to-earth person who chose marriage and children (two sons, at this point, born in 1997 and 2000 respectively) over larger fame. And yet she's maintained a steady career as an actor in film and on TV, with more than 50 roles over the past 30 years—most notably, her Oscar-nominated supporting-player parts in Working Girl and In & Out. Two themes have recurred throughout her career: roles as smart, perky, slightly ditzy, funny women in comedies, and roles playing across from John, often as his foil, supporter, or advisor. They've appeared in 10 films together so far; the latest is War, Inc., a blistering Iraq-war satire which John co-wrote, co-produced, and stars in as an exhausted assassin sent on a job in the fictional country of Turaquistan, where a sleazy Halliburton-like American company has all but taken over in the wake of an American invasion. Joan plays John's ground support, in a typically sunny role that's hilariously, deliberately out of place in the grim environs. The A.V. Club recently spoke with Joan Cusack about the film, why famous people aren't anything special, and how not having a family would make her crazy.

M Lohan blogs after first episode of Living Lohan

 

Living Lohan" starring White Oprah and her 45-year-old premiered last night on E! I was drunk through most of it, so I'm not sure what really went down on the show. That's probably not such a bad thing. I'll watch that shit again today. The torture!

Michael Lohan has a lot to say about the show. Of course! The bitch probably has a lot to say about the brand of toilet paper White Oprah uses. He'll talk about anything. OK! Magazine has given him a weekly forum to spew his thoughts about each episode of "Living Lohan." He has to get in on the action somehow.

Michael said, "Soooooo, you want a comment on the first episode of Living Lohan? Well, let's see... If I were to look at things from a wordly perspective, I would probably have a lot to say about exploitation, hypocrisy and even deception — and maybe at a later date, I might just do so. For now, let's just say I'm still trying to figure out if this show is about managing Ali's career and being a "real" mother, or reading tabloids."

He went on to say, "I've had a sneak peek at some future episodes and I will say that some of the people Dina surrounds the kids with still concerns me — again, I can address that when they appear on the show. I just hope Dina takes the high road — like a Lohan would — and rights these wrongs."

He finished with," I wish Ali, Cody and Dina the best on the show and pray that they get what they want out of it."

Yeah, but what does he have to say about Nana? That's the only hot bitch on the show I care about. Michael Lohan is funny. He constantly criticizes White Oprah for whoring out their kids, but yet he'll blab to the media about anything and everything. They should have never broken up. They were a match made in attention whore heaven.

Joan Crawford's daughter says celebs shouldn't adopt



Joan Crawford's daughter attacks trend for celebrity adoptions

Elizabeth Day
Sunday May 25, 2008
The Observer

One of the first children to be adopted by a Hollywood star has condemned the trend for celebrity adoptions as a publicity-seeking exercise with 'profound medical and psychological effects'. Christina Crawford, 68, who was adopted by the actress Joan Crawford in 1939 when she was just two months old, said the recent spate of high-profile adoptions gave her 'tremendous concerns'.

Crawford claims she was physically abused by her adoptive mother. In 1978 she wrote the bestselling memoir Mommie Dearest about her experiences. It was later adapted into a film starring Faye Dunaway and Crawford went on to become an influential advocate for adoptees' rights.

'I have tremendous concerns about celebrity adoptions by people like Madonna and Angelina Jolie,' she said in an exclusive interview to mark the publication of a 30th anniversary edition of her memoir. 'From the adoptee's point of view, it is vitally important to know who they are, where they came from, or it can have profound medical and psychological effects.'

Couric Returning to "Today" Wednesday Morning for "Major Announcement"

Katie Couric to Make "Major Announcement" on Today  


Today show anchor Matt Lauer announced this morning that former Today show, and current CBS Evening News anchor, Katie Couric, will be back on the program tomorrow morning to make a, "major announcement."

"Permanently?" asked anchor Meredith Vieira. Lauer laughed: "No, you're not sick again tomorrow are you?"

Let the speculation begin.

TVNewser has calls in to both CBS and NBC regarding what the announcement could mean.

Update: An anonymous tipster writes, "Wednesday's announcement: NBC, CBS and ABC are teaming up for a joint telethon. Cancer research. Couric, Williams, Gibson, and others. September. On a Friday night." But why would Couric go on Today rather than CBS' The Early Show?

ABC, NBC, CBS Join Forces to Fight Cancer

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

In an unprecedented collaboration, all three major television networks will donate one hour of simultaneous commercial-free primetime this fall in an effort to raise money for cancer research.

The broadcast, "Stand Up To Cancer," will air on Sept. 5 on ABC, CBS and NBC and will feature live performances by recording artists and movie and film stars who will, along with the evening news anchors from each of the networks, deliver information about potentially life-saving cancer research.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the country after heart disease.

In commenting on why ABC decided to join the cause, Anne Sweeney, co-chair, Disney Media Networks and President, Disney-ABC Television Group, stated "Everyone in our country has been touched by cancer in some way, shape or form. The thought that we could, in one hour of television, make a true difference in the fight against this disease was both exciting and inspiring."

"The statistics are staggering," said Charles Gibson, anchor of ABC News's "World News Tonight with Charles Gibson." "Cancer claims one person every minute every day in the United States."

"Every year in this country, more than half a million people die from this disease," said Gibson, "Worldwide, cancer kills more than six million people annually."

The American Cancer Society predicts that 1,437,180 new cancer cases will be diagnosed this year alone.

Raymond Burr and p33n: a love story



It turns out that Raymond Burr, who played fifties TV icon Perry Mason, was a total 'mo. A newly-published Burr biography, Hiding in Plain Sight: The Secret Life of Raymond Burr, chronicles both Burr's real love life and the goofy lie he used to cover it up.

Burr invented a fake wife and son he said had died, and used his busy schedule as a way to explain why he hadn't remarried. He claimed he had met and eloped with Scottish actress Annette Southerland, who gave birth to their son Michael Evan in 1942. But Annette soon died, Burr said, in the same plane crash that claimed the life of Gone With the Wind star Leslie Howard on June 1, 1943, while the son later succumbed tragically to leukemia.

Totally made up! No Annette Southerland was on that plane, nor is there any other sign of her existence, or of sickly little Michael Evan.

Imaginary girlfriends weren't rare in old-school Hollywood, but Burr went the extra mile in whipping up such an elaborately detailed fantasy. Meanwhile, according to the new bio, Burr and his lover Robert Benevides were partners for 35 years.

Burr was a minor character actor when he began telling this story, but once Perry Mason became a big hit, the dead-wife-and-son routine was repeated time and again. Raymond could have ended it all right then and there, blaming the mix-up on an overeager studio publicist or on his youthful showbiz naïveté. But he chose to continue perpetrating the fabrications by refusing to address them.

He would answer the inevitable queries about his supposed marriage by reciting the facts of his brief (real) marriage to one Isabella Ward (which had ended in annulment). If the questioning went any further in relation to Annette Sutherland or their son, he would beg off with a terse, "I don't discuss that."

"I am an unmarried man, as opposed to a single man," he lectured one reporter in November 1957. "I don't want to seem to avoid giving direct answers, but I've played attorneys so many times I'm getting to be a curbstone lawyer."

Sherri Shepherd to co-host Daytime Emmy Awards

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Cameron Mathison has a new partner: Sherri Shepherd. The soap star and former "Dancing With the Stars" contestant will host the 35th annual Daytime Emmy Awards with "The View" gabber and actress-comedian live from the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles on June 20.

Neither Mathison nor Shepherd has ever hosted the Daytime Emmys, nor has either won one.

Mathison plays playboy Ryan Lavery on ABC's "All My Children" and hosts SOAPnet's competitive reality series "I Wanna Be a Soap Star." He was nominated for outstanding supporting actor in 2002 and 2004.

During the fifth season of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," Mathison came in fifth place with his professional partner, Edyta Sliwinska.

Shepherd has been a co-host on ABC's "The View" since 2007. She has appeared in TV shows such as "30 Rock," "Less Than Perfect" and "The Jamie Foxx Show." The born-again Christian shocked audiences last year when she told "View" moderator Whoopi Goldberg she wasn't sure whether or not the world was flat. She later acknowledged it wasn't.

Shepherd, Goldberg and their "View" co-hosts Barbara Walters, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar are among the nominee for best talk show host at this year's ceremony. They've lost the category 10 times. While "The View" itself has been honored, Ellen DeGeneres' show has dominated the best talk show category in recent years.

A new category — best informative talk show — will be presented this year.

The Daytime Emmys will air on ABC.

Tori will be in the new 90210 series

Tori Spelling will reprise her role as Donna on The CW's new series, "90210," the network confirmed on Tuesday.

"Donna Martin will be the owner of one of the coolest stores in Beverly Hills, a shopping spot that is frequented by the new cast of characters," according to a press release by The CW.

Tori, who is currently pregnant with her second child, told Access Hollywood in March that she was hoping to work on the new series.


"I would love to be a part of it," Tori said. "Who would I play? I would play the sexy [mom] obviously. Every teen drama has a [hot mom] - stepmother of course, because I couldn't possibly have a teenage daughter."

Earlier this month, the network confirmed Jennie Garth would also be heading back to her old zip code, reprising her role as Kelly Taylor.

In the new series, Kelly will play a guidance counselor at West Beverly High School.

When Access Hollywood caught up with Jennie at The CW upfront presentation, she said the new series will certainly push the envelope.

"[The executive producers] were telling me what they were going to do with the show and I was [like], 'Wow! Is that what it is really like out there for teenagers?'" she told Access. "It's just a different world and there is just so much accessible to young people now, so there is a lot to talk about now, [a lot] to deal with."

The new "90210" will debut September 2.

And Perez de Tagle admits the whole controversy has been tough on her friend. She says, “Sometimes I’ll talk to her on the phone and she’ll be like, ‘It’s really hard’ or ‘I’m really tired. I can’t do this.’ “I’ll always say, ‘You do want to do this. You love your job.’ “It (photo scandal) really hurt her. She didn’t know that people would look at it like that.”

Fifteen-year old Nick Jonas has caught on quickly to the perks of being a teen heartthrob: "When you see a girl that you think is totally hot, in an airport or something, and she'll come up and be like, 'Oh my gosh, you guys are the Jonas Brothers.' And we're like, 'Oh, yes, we are,' " he tells People magazine.

In a special newsstand-only issue dedicated to the popular brother musical act, out Friday, Kevin, 20, Joe, 18, and Nick talk about their celebrity crushes, latest obsessions, style secrets and hidden talents.

SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA GO THROUGH THE PAIN TO EXPERIENCE THE JOY

Lily Donaldson buys $2.2 million apartment on Avenue B

-cc.lilyidgemma

Very blond, well-boned, expensively jeaned buyers have been pouring into East Village apartments for so long that it’s hard to find new excuses to complain about the area’s über-gentrification. But then again, it’s hard to remember when someone as upsettingly young as Lily Donaldson, the 21-year-old Vogue cover girl, spent anything like $2.2 million on a neighborhood apartment, especially one that happens to be as far east as Avenue B.

Her new two-bedroom place on Tompkins Square Park around East Eighth Street could be the most expensive co-op ever sold on the block, according to listing broker Danny Davis.

She has Brazilian cherry wood floors (“that glow with the setting sun,” according to his listing), two bathrooms with original pedestal sinks and cast iron tubs, a 40-foot-long living room with six windows facing three directions, and, of course, a dressing room off one of the two bedrooms.

On the downside, the building is massively nondescript and un-frilled, plus the apartment needs work. “I’d put money into it,” Mr. Davis said, “I’d bet she will, too.”

Nevertheless, it sold for well above its $1.895 million asking price from this December. “I had six offers on the place,” said the broker, though he wouldn’t discuss the deal itself. The model’s rivals included a husband and wife from Goldman Sachs, a bachelor who owns a PR firm, and a woman with a trust fund.

But Ms. Donaldson was “the highest bidder and very qualified. The board liked her and approval was unanimous, which is always a concern when you’re dealing with a young model,” Mr. Davis said. “You’re never sure how a board would see her.”

The last sale in the building, according to city records, was a $650,000 deal just one floor down. That was in October 2004; nowadays, Avenue B has a lot of models and PR executives willing to pay more. Those new buyers make things nice for brokers like Mr. Davis, who wears slicked-back hair and a big smile in his Web site’s photograph: He left for Mexico after the apartment was listed in December, held just one open house when he came back, and accepted Ms. Donaldson’s offer a week later.

After closing, Mr. Davis went south again for a 40th birthday celebration in Jamaica: “Twenty-one people, all friends, no kids,” he said. “Awesome place—yeah, it was great.”

JSYK, the apartment is just a couple streets away from where THE LEGENDARY MISS GEMMA WARD lives. FRIENDS FOREVER

Feist and Death Cab man team up for charity album

David Byrne also set for Red Hot AIDS compilation

Feist

Feist and Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard are reportedly teaming up to record a song together for the forthcoming 'Red Hot' charity album, which benefits AIDS research.

The duo will join several artists including David Byrne, Sufjan Stevens, The Decemberists, Sharon Jones, Dirty Projectors and The National, who are contributing the latest instalment of the 'Red Hot' charity compilation.

Byrne, who has contributed to several 'Red Hot' compilations over the years, is collaborating with Dirty Projectors for two songs on the album.

In a posting on his website, Byrne wrote, "I’d been told more than once that we should all work together, and it seems the suggestion was fated to be realised."

Byrne said of one of the songs: "The tune is as oddly structured as any of their pieces, but you sort of don’t notice because it is really catchy and it all flows as if nothing untoward is going on whatsoever."

The as-yet-untitled album is set to be released in the autumn or in early 2009, reports Billboard.

Chuck Palahniuk's 'Choke' Trailer Hits The Web

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


MTV has revealed the trailer for Fox Searchlight Pictures' Choke, written/directed by Clark Gregg and starring Sam Rockwell, Anjelica Huston, Brad William Henke and Kelly Macdonald. The film, opening September 26, is adapted from the best-selling, critically acclaimed novel by Chuck Palahniuk ("Fight Club").

In the film, Rockwell plays Victor Mancini, a sex-addicted med-school dropout, who keeps his increasingly deranged mother, Ida (Huston), in an expensive private medical hospital by working days as a historical reenactor at a Colonial Williamsburg theme park. At night Victor runs a scam by deliberately choking in upscale restaurants to form parasitic relationships with the wealthy patrons who "save" him. When, in a rare lucid movement, Ida reveals that she has withheld the shocking truth of his father's identity, Victor enlists the aid of his best friend, Denny (Henke) and his mother's beautiful attending physician, Dr. Paige Marshall (Macdonald), to solve the mystery before the truth of his possibly divine parentage is lost forever.

Australia's Next Top Model star blasted for cosmetic surgery


Bee-stung Australia's Next Top Model contender Alex Girdwood has been held up as an example of how plastic surgery can go wrong after it was revealed she has had collagen injections into her lips.

The sharp-tongued Sydneysider frequently offers catty remarks about other contestants on the show, but the tables will be turned tonight when judges and photographer interrogate her about her frozen face.

"We just plain asked her: we could tell that she had trouble moving her mouth on shoots and photographers were getting frustrated," judge Charlotte Dawson told ninemsn today.

"She did own up to it and admitted she'd had collagen injections.

"It's certainly affected her performance and at the end of each week we judge these girls on how they model, so if you've got limited facial movement because of enhancements then that limits you and won't help." 

The revelation is a serious problem for Alex following a recent good run on the show, including a trip to Brisbane with Demelza and Leiden after they won a challenge. 

Dawson says the experience should serve as a warning to other young women considering cosmetic surgery. 

"I don't really have a position on if and when you should do this sort of thing — I think it's up to the individual — but Alex is an example of how it can go wrong," she said. 

"It can help some people and it can hinder some other people … she's an example of the latter.

"Thankfully, these things are temporary, they don't last very long and hopefully she won't do it again — she's a beautiful girl."

Report: Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Sign Lease for French Chateau



Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have signed a three-year lease for a 880-acre chateau valued at $70 million on the French Riviera, French newspaper Nice Matin reports.

The pregnant actress has alluded to giving birth to twins in France, where the couple has lived recently.

"We are certainly thinking of France," she said at the Cannes Film Festival last week.

The property, called Chateau Miraval – which is near homes owned by Johnny Depp and the Beckhams – includes a vineyard, lake, moat, forest and 20 fountains, the paper reports.

Jolie, 32, and Pitt, 44 are raising their four children – Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2 – with French roots.

"[French is] a second language in the house, although I'm still learning and am not going to attempt any of it here today," Jolie said at Cannes. "My children are starting to speak French, so being here is very good for them and their language."

LL Cool J Clothing Line at Sears

LL Cool J to design kids clothing


Rapper joins forces with US chain store Sears

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


LL Cool J has joined forces with US chain store Sears to create a range of clothing for juniors.

The line, called LL Cool J for Sears, will see the rapper create clothing for young boys and girls, and will be sold initially in 450 Sears stores across North America.

Speaking to WWD.com, LL, whose real name is James Todd Smith, says having three daughters helped him decide on his designs: "I was raised by a matriarch, I have a wife and three daughters, so I know what women are looking for when they shop for clothes. Clothes have to make a woman feel good, relaxed and sexy. We are going to be constantly looking at fine-tuning the fit and we'll get it right."

The clothes will feature personal elements of LL, from a tattoo embroidered on a jacket, to lyrics from his songs on a T-shirt.

The venture is the latest in a string of branching-out moves made by the rapper, who has dabbled in acting and has written several books including a children's book called 'And the Winner Is'; a keep-fit book entitled 'LL Cool J's Platinum Workout' and an autobiography called ‘I Make My Own Rules'.

The rapper previously designed a range of clothing for men called Todd Smith.

MCR March hit by Internet Terrorists

My Chemical Romance march hit by 'internet terrorists'



Fan protest suffers sick web stunt

my chemical romance

"Internet terrorists" have attempted to sabotage the upcoming demonstration against The Daily Mail by fans of My Chemical Romance.

In an apparent attempt to discredit the protest, the group have created a copy of the fans' website with a similar web address.

The false website includes videos incorrectly claiming that the fans will commit mass suicide outside The Daily Mail's offices on May 31, in protest against the paper's representation of emo in relation to the recent suicide of teenager Hannah Bond.

In reality, however, the group will merely protest peacefully outside the newspaper's offices.

The march's organiser Anni Smith told NME.COM: "They're trying to put out really incorrect information to try and sabotage us. We believe [the fake site] is by Anonymous, who are basically internet terrorists. They play really elaborate internet pranks.

"We need to get the message across to people about which websites to look at for the correct information. As well as the official site - Whatthefrank.co.uk - we've got a YouTube channel which will be kept up to date - youtube.com/whattheffrank."

Smith also commented on Gerard Way's recent quotes on the suicide of Hannah Bond and accusations of the band's influence, saying: "It's great to see that, it's reiterating everything that I've always said, it's good to know we're right."

Campaign for Burma

Damien Rice has called for his fans to back a 30-day video campaign which aims to educate people around the world about the military regime in Burma.

The goal of the campaign is to mobilise 1 million people to sign up as ‘voices’ calling for change. The organisers hope that the campaign will launch a peaceful global assault, similar to that which helped to free Nelson Mandela and saw the end of the apartheid in South Africa.

This latest campaign, ‘Burma, It Can’t Wait’ is an effort to help see freedom for Burma's imprisoned Nobel Peace Prize recipient Aung San Suu Kyi and the people of Burma. Their struggle has been heightened in the face of a growing humanitarian crisis in the wake of a devastating cyclone earlier this month.

The campaign is now in its 27th day out of 30 and over 50,000 voices have already signed up. But as the aim is 1 million people, the campaign is falling short.  Many high profile celebrities, including Jennifer Aniston, Will Ferrell, Ellen Page, Sylvester Stallone, Felicity Huffman have all made videos to publicise the campaign.

Kate Hudson goes blue?



Kate Hudson has washed that Owen Wilson right out of her hair and I’m assuming it was with a member of the blue man group. The look, which could be for a movie or could be an early warning sign for a dose of the crazies, is definitely not suggested for anyone out there who enjoys being taken seriously. Hopefully its for a movie role in which Kate plays that chick who turns into a blueberry in Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, just after the factory trip, when she has to make a living as a candy-scented stripper named Blue Balls.

Whatever the reason, if you plan to attempt (or currently hit the streets with baby blue streaks), don’t.

Tara Reid Shows Some Leg Skin

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Tara Reid looks pretty good here, because certain conditions are fulfilled. One, she looks more sober than usually. Two, the enormous chest is not exposed. Now of course, we still get to see the stains on the dress and the messy hair, but we always appreciate improvement. Even more, she is not as skinny as she used to be a little while ago, when she was almost receiving “emaciated” comments.

Now it is a smart thing that Tara only exposed her best body part, aka her legs, because we can’t say anything bad about them, since they seem slim, shapely enough, bruise-and-cellulite-free. How do you like her legs and overall look?

Is it just me, or do Nicole’s sunglasses appear bigger and bigger every time we see her? Or could it be because she has an ever-shrinking face and body? Now there was a lot of speculation on whether Nicole was going to embrace her former uber-skinny figure after giving birth and some said that she will settle at a healthy weight. Well, it doesn’t look like it, since Nicole appears to be losing weight - slowly enough to avoid tabloid covers going “Nicole is anorexic again”, but still losing.

Vanessa Bryant has a potty mouth

Reporter cussed out by Vanessa Bryant



Laura Lane covers the Lakers for ESPN.com. She wrote a mildly invasive item about that weird purple tutu thing that Vanessa Bryant wore on the floor the night Kobe picked up his MVP award. Then after game 2 of the San Antonio series, Lane was leaving the Lakers locker room when Vanessa lit into her. Lane attributes it in part to the "rumors" of Kobe bonking one of the Laker Girls — "a hotter version of his wife who is also named Vanessa" — who has suddenly vanished from the squad.

So as I'm walking out of the Lakers locker room after some post-game interviews with the players, I pass Vanessa, who is sitting outside the locker room as usual with her two girls.

"Laura!” she screams (yes, she apparently knows my name). "Fuck you! You fucking bitch!"

"Excuse me?" I say, completely baffled as I look around me to see if there is someone else named Laura. No, there’s not.

Her daughters – ages 5 and 2 – are sitting next to her on the bench looking at their mom as she screams.

[More f-words ensue. Many more.]

I just stare at her. I've heard many stories about her from reporters, but this was unbelievable. Two of my friends from the LA Times told me how she cussed out one of them last season, because he said hi to her daughter. "Join the club, this means you've arrived," said one reporter when word spread of my run-in with Vanessa. "She's insane," said another. "Everyone knows it."

Lane is a 2007 USC grad who has worked at E! Online and was Ryan Seacrest's intern for awhile. She blogs, "The sad part is before all of this I kind of liked Vanessa and I thought we hit it off. She doesn't give a fuck about anything. She wears these insane outfits, struts around Staples Center like a queen, shows off her daughters and lets them run around the hall way playing tag while reporters are trying to get by....As a journalist I am going to piss people off. That's just the nature of the business. I never want to or intend to piss people off, but if you’re not pissing people off occasionally, then you are constantly kissing ass."

What do we have here? On the left, we’ve got Hilary Duff, representing the healthier-looking bodies and on the right, we’ve got Keira Knightley who stands for the tiny figures. What do they have in common? Well, clearly, not their body shape, nor their body size. What they have in common is a pair of high-waisted jeans (which they both decided that worked best if paired with plain black tops).

Have your say: Does this type of pants look better on a skinny or on a curvy figure? Who can pull the high waisted jeans off? Hilary Duff or Keira Knightley?

John Graziano's Dad is Pissed at the Hogans (Again)

Graziano's Dad: Hogans Are as Fake as Their Hair     



Ed Graziano -- John Graziano's father -- is outraged by the conversations between members of the Hogan family that were caught on tape. Ed Graziano says he was particularly disturbed by a conversation between Nick and Linda Hogan, where Linda claims she is suffering more than John's mother.

"My wife lives for her children, and nobody knew my son better than my wife did," Graziano tells TampaBay.com. "My wife is the best mother there is in the world." Ed points out that the remorseful and sad family the Hogans portrayed themselves to be in court clearly was contradicted by what was heard on the tapes.

"The reason he (Nick) was put in jail is to think about what he did to my son," says Graziano. "That's the last thought on his mind."

Ne-Yo Talks Lindsay Lohan Collabo, ''Apologizes'' For Low Expectations

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ne-Yo has written songs for such R&B heavyweights as Beyonce and Mary J. Blige but he believes his recent collaboration with paparazzi queen Lindsay Lohan is really gonna shock the world.

After penning such hits as Beyonce's "Irreplaceable," Rihanna's "Unfaithful" and Mario's "Let Me Love You," Ne-Yo recently wrote an upbeat track called "Bossy" for Lohan's next album. The singer-song writer worked with Stargate on the track and told Billboard, "I gotta admit, we were like ... Lindsay Lohan?"

"I've written for Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Celine Dion and ... Lindsay Lohan," he said. "But I will say this; we gave her a quality record and she did a ridiculously fabulous job. I was so shocked I had to call her and apologize for what I was thinking because she did so good. I think the world is gonna be surprised."

Ne-Yo's most recent track to hit the airwaves is Jennifer Hudson's "Spotlight."

"The main issue with Jennifer Hudson is her voice is so huge, so how do you take that and radio-ize it, make it radio-friendly," Ne-Yo said about working with the "American Idol" alumni. "She can't do ('And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going') every song 'cause you'll eventually be tired of it. So ('Spotlight') is kind of a classy midtempo, and I hope and pray it does well 'cause Jennifer is an amazing talent."

Even while juggling all of these projects, Ne-Yo is prepping the release of his third Def Jam album, Year of the Gentleman. The album features production from Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, Stargate, and J.R. Rotem.

Year of the Gentleman hits stores on August 5th.

Seriously, this sounds like my kind of wedding. Gayelles, ginges, Dolly Parton, funnel cakes and raggedy roller coasters. Amazing! It's too good to be true. This is just drunk talk.

And what does Michael Lohan think of all this gayelle action? He told UsWeekly that Lezzy's romance with Samantha "is evident to anyone with half a brain." In related news, White Oprah has denied the romance. Half a brain meet White Oprah.

And Rock admits his time with Anderson was one of the most difficult periods of his life.

He says, “It (marriage) taught me a lot. I touched the stove, it’s f***ing hot; it burnt the f*** out of my hand. I’m not going to touch the stove anymore.”

"Inglorious Bastards" to be Released in 2009

Oh, Quentin Tarantino. I just don't know what to do with you. Sure you've made some of my favorite films of all time, but you've been in a holding pattern lately. Should we ever really take seriously the promises you make or should we just chalk them up to someone interviewing you in the midst of a coke/alcohol fueled Cannes frenzy? Let's face it, despite your promise to French TV show, Le Grand Journal that you would finally have your long-awaited WWII film Inglorious Bastards ready for Cannes 2009, it certainly isn't the first time you've made promises about this film.

I'm not gonna start in on the guy too hard. I've loved most of his films with the major exception of the largely dull Death Proof. I have been let down so many times by his excited announcements of upcoming projects that he fails to come through on that I have learned to take him with a big grain of salt.

This is the big one I've been waiting for though. I've been excited by the idea of Quentin Tarantino's "Dirty Dozen"-ish style ensemble cast war movie since he first brought it up. The story follows a group of soldiers who are going to be executed for various crimes but are given a reprieve if they are willing to take on a suicide mission in Nazi-occupied France. I want to believe the reason this is taking so long to happen is because Quentin is making sure the script is absolutely perfect.

Kirsten Dunst Says She's Not an Alcoholic/Addict, Just Depressed

Kirsten Dunst: I Went to Rehab for "Depression"



Kirsten Dunst is opening up about why she checked into a Utah treatment center last year.

I didn’t go to Cirque Lodge for alcohol abuse or drug abuse,” the actress, 26, tells E! in a new interview. “I went there for depression.”

She says "it was a good six months before I decided to go away.

“I was struggling, and I had the opportunity to go somewhere and take care of myself," she continues. "I was fortunate to have the resources to do it. My friends and family thought it was a good idea, too. But I didn't know where to go. My doctor recommended Cirque Lodge."

As for battling depression, she says celebs are no different than anyone else.

We’re all in the same boat together," Dunst says. "Depression is pretty serious and should not be gossiped about.”

She says "there’s been a lot of misrepresentation about what is going on in my life," including reports that she was dropped as the face of Miu Miu because of her personal problems.

Those claims, she says, are "very painful for my friends and family.

“Everyone feels like they have to defend me. They hear the rumors, and it puts them in a defensive position," she adds. "Now that I’m feeling stronger, I [am] prepared to say something.”

Lastly, Dunst set the record straight on one last rumor: "I am not dating [my All Good Things co-star] Ryan Gosling!”

I love how the producers are having Cook and Archuleta appear together as much as possible, so as to create the facade of two winners and, ergo, more buzz for both of their upcoming albums.

What Tom Wants to Hear

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I loved Will Smith. Will Smith was perfect.

And then Will Smith drank the Xenu juice. Will Smith hasn’t been the same since.

So Will dropped by Ellen’s yesterday to promote Hancock – did you watch? Sigh. Made me sad. Once upon a time, Will Smith wasn’t so… contrived. Nowadays it’s like he’s taken a page from the GMD: totally rehearsed, pandering, maybe not so creepy, but also completely devoid of spontaneity. Even Ellen seemed shellshocked by the transformation.

Sanjaya Lives!

Sanjaya Prepares for Retirement



Hold on to your scrunchie! Despite being on his 16th minute of fame, pony-hawked "Idol" wannabeen Sanjaya Malakar is going Nationwide.

Instead of performing at the opening of an outlet mall or opening balloon festival like his fellow "Idol" losers, Sanji followed in the bankrupt footsteps of MC Hammer and Kevin Federline and filmed the latest ad for Nationwide insurance in India today.

The theme of the commercial is about planning for your retirement -- something that happened to Sanjaya the minute he was voted off "A.I."

shia labeouf being shia labeouf



Shia LaBeouf picks up an energy drink at Robeks Juice before making a quick dash to Paty’s restaurant in Los Angeles for breakfast on Tuesday.

The Associated Press thinks that when Shia first appears on screen in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, he’s a “dead ringer for Marlon Brando’s young punk in 1953’s The Wild One.”

DO YOU THINK Shia LaBeouf is the next Marlon Brando?

Roberto Cavalli Hates On Kate Moss, All English People, and Hos



Designer Roberto Cavalli (Just Cavalli F/W 08/09 pictured above) talks about:

Vulgar dressing: "There is a real vulgarity in the way women dress at the moment. They show off too much and try too hard. They don't understand where the line is between sexy and vulgar. I know where that line is."

English women having no style, apparently: "It happens a lot with women of a certain nationality - I'm sure you can imagine which - and you just want to say 'Give it back!'?... The English - oh my God. I shouldn't say this because I live part of the time in London, but they are on a par with the Swiss stylistically." (LOL)

Kate Moss' Topshop line: "Kate Moss's collection was badly made, stupid and bland; you see things like that everywhere. You can't just buy things for the label - it's ridiculous."

BTW:
Kate Moss has been repping most Cavalli lines since 2005/2006.

kristen bell pulling for detroit. brb being indecisive


Originally from Detroit, Kristen Bell is a huge Detroit Red Wings fan who recently starred in the romantic comedy, “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” opposite Jason Segel, Jonah Hill and Paul Rudd. For three seasons, Bell starred in the title role of the CW series “Veronica Mars” and her current projects include the Disney Studios film “When in Rome” and NBC’s hit series, “Heroes”. Bell attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and currently lives in Los Angeles.

NHL.com recently caught up with Bell and discussed her affection for the Red Wings. Here’s what the actress had to say:

NHL.com: Why are you rooting for Detroit and why do you think they will win?
KB: I am rooting for Detroit BECAUSE I think they will win! Just kidding. I grew up in Detroit and have always been a huge Wings fan. They have heart, skill, class and the best color combination known to man. That is why they will win.

NHL.com: Do you remember your first hockey game, or the beginning of your interest in the sport?
KB: I was 14 years old and kind of a tomboy-- and all the guys I was friends with loved the Wings. They always wanted to play street hockey too – and I did whatever they did. I broke both my wrists -- at the same time --playing street hockey with them.

NHL.com: What is your favorite hockey memory?
KB: My parents submitted a picture of me, in my catholic school uniform, with my arms around the Stanley Cup. It ended up on the ticket for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Semifinals against Colorado in 1996.

NHL.com: If you could meet any hockey player, who would you meet and why?
KB: Chris Osgood was my first crush. Brad Pitt be damned, he had nothing on Osgood's rookie skill and sad eyes. There was actually a day in high school when I wrote on a name tag 'Mrs. Osgood' and wore it the whole day. I really thought we were perfect for each other. I'd love to meet him and probably apologize that things never worked out.

Jessica Simpson's New Song



Jessica Simpson adds another accessory to her always-stylish look – a cowboy hat.

The singer is "talking about doing a country record and going back to her roots, being from Texas," Jessica's father and manager, Joe Simpson, told PEOPLE at Hard Rock Hotel's Rolling Stone party in Las Vegas.

"Everything in our business is about beats and I think she really wants to sing," he said, "and country music still believes in that."

Simpson, 27, recently finished filming Major Movie Star and is turning her thoughts back to her music. Her last album, 2006's "Public Affair," hit the Top 20, but quickly fell off the charts.

"She's a singer from top to bottom," Joe Simpson said. "And everything in the music business, especially pop music, has moved away from singers. And I think country is the the only pure, storytelling kind of genre left."

On whether she will be accepted among country fans, he said, "She's from Texas. How could she not?"

The shocking toll Amy Winehouse's party lifestyle is having on her ravaged skin

 

She is an undisputed singing and songwriting talent.

And only last week  won an Ivor Novello gong for her stunning song Love Is A Losing Game from her Grammy awardwinning album Back To Black.

But it's clearly not love that is the losing game, as singer Amy Winehouse revealed the heavy toll her drug-taking lifestyle is taking on her once attractive looks.



The singer was seen out late last night, and her thick make-up could not hide her heavily scabbed skin.

Amy was a shadow of her former smooth-skinned self, and looked ravaged and weary.

She attended a party with friends at her old home in Camden including ex-Busted member Matt Willis.

In addition to the scabbed skin on her face, she had a cut right knee, possibly sustained after stumbling in her stilettos in the wet weather.

Will you watch the circus and see how much they can seriously fuck it up?  taking bets now......

desperate times?

 

Desperate Houswives vixen Eva Longoria kicked off Father’s Day Frosty Weekend at a Wendy’s in Corpus Christi, Texas today.

The 33-year-old actress who was formerly employed by Wendy’s from 1991 to 1994 served Frosties, took orders, and worked the drive-thru window which was all part of a fundraiser for the Dave Thomas Foundation.

With the hype of Desperate Housewives fizzling out and the not so successful theatrical release of Over Her Dead Body, perhaps staying in touch with former employers is not such a bad career move!

Lori Loughlin hates Brenda Walsh

 

According to OK! Magazine, Lori doesn't seem to think Shannen will come back.

Jennie Garth may want Shannen Doherty to return for the 90210 spinoff, but Lori Loughlin sure doesn’t.

“I don't think Shannen will. No.” the actress tells OK!. “I don't think anyone wants to touch that.”

But the show will embrace Tori Spelling with open arms. Donna Martin’s real-life alter ego has been angling for a role in the CW series since the news was announced. But Tori, who’s due next month with her second child, may need to take a short maternity leave first.

“I think they are waiting for her to have her baby and then they're going to - there's definitely a role for her though in the pilot, like a small little cameo thing which will be fun,” Lori says. “But then I think they'll have her back.”

The 43-year-old has also heard “rumblings” of Luke Perry returning, but claims to not know much else. Having already talked to Jennie about the show, the star now can hardly wait to start production on June 25.

“I'm so excited. I've seen a script. It's good," she says. "I really like it. It's definitely the contemporary 90210. It's touching on what teenagers are going through nowadays, which is a little bit -- I don't want to say faster, but they are definitely exposed to more at this time. Kids today, they have a lot to handle. They grow up so fast.”

Patrick Swayze at a Lakers game



Patrick Swayze and his wife Lisa were two famous faces in the crowd Friday as the Los Angeles Lakers beat the San Antonio Spurs 101-71 during Game 2 of the NBA Western Conference playoff series at L.A.'s Staples Center.

Swayze, 55, revealed in March that he has pancreatic cancer. But last month the star of Dirty Dancing and Ghost released a statement with his wife, telling PEOPLE his treatment is going well. "We're thrilled and grateful for the positive response Patrick has shown towards his treatment," the couple said.

"He has very strong willpower and he's a very determined individual," his sister-in-law Dr. Maria Scouros, a Houston oncologist, said at the time. "He's bringing all that energy to bear on it."

Sharon Stone: Was China quake 'bad karma?'



LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sharon Stone's "karma" comment is having an instant effect on her movie-star status in China.

The 50-year-old actress suggested last week that the devastating May 12 earthquake in China could have been the result of bad karma over the government's treatment of Tibet. That prompted the founder of one of China's biggest cinema chains to say his company would not show her films in his theaters, according to a story in The Hollywood Reporter.

"I'm not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don't think anyone should be unkind to anyone else," Stone said Thursday during a Cannes Film Festival red-carpet interview with Hong Kong's Cable Entertainment News. "And then this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and then I thought, is that karma? When you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?"

Ng See-Yuen, founder of the UME Cineplex chain and the chairman of the Federation of Hong Kong Filmmakers, called Stone's comments "inappropriate," adding that actors should not bring personal politics to comments about a natural disaster that has left five million Chinese homeless, according to the Reporter.

UME has branches in Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Hangzhou and Guangzhou, China's biggest urban movie markets.

During the brief interview, which has also surfaced on YouTube, Stone also said she cried when she received a letter from the Tibetan Foundation asking her to help quake victims.

"They wanted to go and be helpful, and that made me cry," she said. "It was a big lesson to me that sometimes you have to learn to put your head down and be of service even to people who aren't nice to you."

Stone's words created a swell of anger on the Internet, including at least one Chinese Web site devoted solely to disparaging her comments.

"To Sharon Stone's comment, it's unlikely that we will respond," said a woman who answered the phone at the Foreign Ministry in Beijing. She refused to give her name or position.

After-hours phone calls and email to a representative for Stone were not immediately returned Tuesday night.

According to the Web-based database imdb.com, Stone has at least four movies coming up between now and 2010, including "Streets of Blood," "Five Dollars a Day" and "The Year of Getting to Know Us."

I understand what she is trying to say and there are some valid points she says before she goes into karma. obviously the holocaust was karma towards the jews, and 9/11 karma towards the americans...
but the ending about putting your head down and helping those who hurt you is well said


oh and jsyk the deathtoll is around 70,000 as this afternoon

Milo & Liv Tyler in 'Cookie Magazine'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Actress Liv Tyler's 3 1/2-year-old son, Milo, has a very fuzzy grasp of what his mom does for a living. His description of her job starts with: "My mommy works at night." And her office? "He'll point out motor homes along the road and say, 'That's where my mommy works,'" says the actress, 30. "The implication, well..." She trails off with a laugh.

Clearly, Mom's odd shooting hours and trailers have left an impression. Tyler and her son recently spent four months in Toronto while she filmed The Incredible Hulk (she plays love interest Betty Ross to Edward Norton's angry green giant). "It was the hardest film I ever worked on, hours-wise," says Tyler, who has appeared in 22 movies, including Stealing Beauty and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, since segueing from modeling to acting in her teens. Although her husband, musician Royston Langdon, was often in Toronto as well, Tyler's Hulk shooting schedule would have fried any mom. She frequently pulled all-nighters and got home at 7 a.m.—just in time to climb into Milo's bed with him for a cuddle, make him breakfast, and sleep a little before doing it all over again.

My friend, can your heart stand the shocking facts of unnecessary remakes?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

For decades, Ed Wood's movie Plan 9 From Outer Space has reigned supreme as the most brilliantly awful movie ever made. Starring Vampira and an aged, drugged out Bela Lugosi, the 50s flick is about aliens who come to Earth and reanimate dead bodies as part of their world-domination scheme. The weird, elliptical script, bugged-out acting, and transcendently inadequate special effects helped make Plan 9 from Outer Space a movie that defined the "so bad it's good" genre. But now indie director John Johnson says he's remaking the film as a non-campy, "character-driven" move that will be "very scary." He's calling it Plan 9, or just P9. What the hell?

Pamela Anderson's Upskirt is Unstoppable

Collapse )

Pamela Anderson might want to find a longer dress.

Then again, Pamela Anderson might want to find smaller breast implants.

But that just wouldn't be the Pam we know, now would it.

These Pamela Anderson upskirt pictures are pretty much a testament to the Pam we know and love (?).

It would be like Paris Hilton not making sex tapes, or not having Herpes.

It just wouldn't be right.
