“Longtime soap star Joseph Mascolo is furious after Days` bosses axed him from the show out of the blue-and did it with a cold phone call. “A show exec called and simply told him his contract isnt being renewed,”says an insider. ‘He’s furious and in a state of shock. He flew into a rage over the phone.’ The 73 year old actor who plays baddie Stefano Dimera first joined the NBC drama in 1982 and worked there nearly 20 years until 2001, when he joined the Bold and the Beautiful for five years. He returned to Days last June reprising his popular role. The storyline put his character in a coma for the past month. “Joe believed DAYS would be his swan song” says the insider. ‘He’s been at the center of a strong story line since he came back. What’s worse is he’s not even being brought out of the coma for a major finale. He’s worked his last day on the show.’
There's no official statement and it's not on any soap news sites but it's on Joseph Mascolo's official website and observant eyes have noticed that he's off the credits.
This is really messed up and not cool. Don't they realize how many people tuned in to see Stefano? I don't know what producer/writer thinks that we're watching to see Stephanie/Max or Chelsea/old man doctor. If you think this is as fucked up as I do, try writing to SOD and make sure to include your full name:

Despite achieving phenomenal success with his band Coldplay, Chris Martin remains a true pop fan at heart and was bowled over when he met Beyonce. He said: 'She's the most impressive person I've met. She's a legend to me but much younger than me.'
Could it be true???
Dulce Maria of RBD is rumored to be pregnant. It was announced on radio show America Showbiz that she is with baby!

The former O.C. starlet you may know as Mischa Barton turned up last night in Los Angeles, chock full of energy and looking to keep her mortor well...running. Nylon Magazine and MySpace hosted a School of Rock party, and that means all sorts of retarded nonsense must have occurred! When you combine those internet kids who label themselves punk rock, emo, or goth, give them free alcohol, then toss out a few razorblades, you're left with a collective group of nothing but extreme awkwardness...rife with plentiful humor.
What's even better--considering those other party animals in attendance (the celebrity type), plus a semi-famous DJ blaring trendy music all night, you gain great potential for an overly festive time. If that's indeed the case, then who really gives a fuck what Mischa was doing? After her DUI bust, I'd assume the broad keeps off the road as pilot until sentencing rolls around. Pray the cops are smart enough and request that 8 a.m. "howdy miss, we need ya' to come down here immediately and give us your piss" on lil' Miss Barton. All jokes aside and for real though--she's probably clean, but please do consider old habits usually seem to die a hard one in wealthy, aspiring actress land!
Kristen Davis on the Late Late Show last night. Too bad they don't have the Joel McHale vid posted yet.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s new shorter haircut was an emotional transition for the star, because it involved cutting off hair she has had since before her father died.
The actress began growing her hair before film maker Bruce Paltrow died in 2002, and she has since married Coldplay rocker Chris Martin and given birth to their two children.
Paltrow tells the July issue of Harper’s Bazaar, “I was very, very attached to my hair. I grew it when I was pregnant. I still had hair from when my father was alive. I made it like a talisman. And then I was ready to let go of it, and so I chopped it off and … aaah!”
ABC’s “The Mole” had an inauspicious return after a four-year absence last night, finishing third in its timeslot and losing a good deal of its “Bachelorette” lead-in.
“Mole” averaged a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating at 10 p.m., according to Nielsen overnights, well behind timeslot leader NBC’s 2.9 for game five of the Stanley Cup finals. It was also behind a 2.6 for a repeat of “CSI: Miami” on CBS.
The series, making its first appearance since a celebrity edition in 2004, also lost 21 percent of “Bachelorette’s” 2.4 lead-in at 9 p.m., dropping ABC well behind the leaders on an otherwise fairly competitive evening.
"Mole" was ABC's second attempt at reviving a long-dormant reality series this summer. "Bachelorette" has also put up middling numbers in its return.
NBC and CBS tied for first for the night among viewers 18-49, each with a 2.5 average overnight rating and a 7 share, with Fox third at 2.4/7, ABC fourth at 2.1/6, Univision fifth at 1.6/5 and CW sixth at 0.6/2.
At 8 p.m. NBC was first with a 2.2 for the first hour of the Stanley Cup Pittsburgh Penguins-Detroit Red Wings game, followed by CBS with a 2.1 for repeats of “The Big Bang Theory” and “How I Met Your Mother.” ABC and Fox tied for third at 1.8, ABC for “The Bachelorette” and Fox for a repeat of “Bones,” with Univision fifth with a 1.7 for “Al Diablo con los Guapos” and CW sixth with a 0.6 for a repeat of “Gossip Girl.”
Fox took the lead at 9 p.m. with a 3.0 for a repeat of “House,” with CBS a close second with a 2.9 for repeats of “Two and a Half Men” and “Rules of Engagement.” NBC was third with a 2.5 for hockey, ABC fourth with a 2.4 for another hour of “Bachelorette,” Univision fifth with a 1.8 for “Fuego en la Sangre” and CW sixth with a 0.5 for a repeat of “One Tree Hill.”
At 10 p.m. NBC was first with a 2.9 for more hockey, while CBS remained second with a 2.6 for a repeat of “CSI: Miami.” ABC was third with a 1.9 for “Mole” and Univision fourth with a 1.3 for “Cristina.”
CBS was first for the night among households with a 5.2 average overnight rating and a 9 share. Fox was second at 5.2/9, ABC third at 4.2/7, NBC fourth at 3.6/6, Univision fifth at 2.1/3 and CW sixth at 0.9/1.
Traveller's Tales is back and tackling the plastic building block world again. After exhausting the Star Wars franchise with no less than three LEGO Star Wars releases, the company has worked with LucasArts on bringing another of its franchises to the peg-filled universe with LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures.
If you've played any of the LEGO Star Wars titles, you'll feel right at home as the formula has largely remained exactly the same, right down to the control scheme. There is a bit more adventuring this time around however, with more emphasis placed on solving puzzles and collecting keys or parts to unlock the next area, though mashing everything in sight and collecting as many Studs as possible is still the main gameplay focus.
The game runs through the original three Indy films and while it follows the stories well, there are some segments that have been added or tweaked to better fit the title. For example, after rescuing Marion from her bar towards the start of Raiders of the Lost Ark, you'll run through a section where you work along a snowy cliff side, take on some Germans and eventually head out of the area. Similarly, the temple at the end of the Last Crusade has much more than three tests to pass, with plenty of mostly non-deadly puzzles to complete before you get to the Grail. This all works well in terms of how the game plays as well as its pacing, and most all of the segments are fun, though there's certainly a bigger separation between game and films than what we saw with the LEGO Star Wars titles.

If you thought Simon Cowell was blunt, how about this?
The Idol judge has nothing on his boss Nigel Lythgoe, who told OK! that this year’s winner David Cook could be as big as AI alum Daughtry – but only if he gets some personality.
The exec producer also revealed for the first time that the smash hit show had a run-in with the White House earlier this year over the President’s appearance on the Idol Gives Back special!
And he told us about his bizarre plans to turn America's second biggest show, So You Think You Can Dance, into a tinned-food drive.
The Idol exec producer said yesterday that both of the finalists, Davids Cook and Archuleta, could have a shot at the big time -- except that they both suffer from a lack of onstage charisma.
Lythgoe said that he thinks 25-year-old Cook, who took the Idol title two weeks ago, could be “enormous for a long time” and even rival the success of fellow rocker Chris Daughtry, who came fourth in the show's fifth season.
“He can certainly sing – and I’d like to see a bit more personality when he’s singing,” he said.
“And that was the only thing that I think our finalists lacked a little bit this year, was more charisma.”
He said that the pair should use the American Idol Live tour this summer, which starts in Glendale Az. on July 1, to learn to put a unique sparkle into their performances.
Nigel, 58, also spilled that during the planning for the second annual Idol Gives Back fundraising special, which aired in April, America’s biggest TV show had a spat with no less a power than the White House!
He said that the show’s producers were so disappointed with President Bush’s efforts to combat the very poverty that the show was trying to relieve that they were embarrassed to have him on their TV show.
But Nigel said that Idol relented under pressure from the Pres's people, and allowed him to speak during the star-studded broadcast.
“The President is always saying ‘I want to be on [Gives Back],” said the Brit.
“We didn't ask the President this year to say anything because we are all a bit embarrassed about him, and the office insisted that, because the [primary] candidates were on it, the President would like to come on and say ‘thank you.’"
So far Nigel says, Idol Gives Back, has raised some $142million for projects in the US and Africa. But that hasn’t stopped him for developing some far more home-grown ways to help the poor.
The exec, who is also on the board of the after-school program LA’s Best, said that he is going to make the studio audience for So You Think You Can Dance donate canned goods for the program in exchange for an admission ticket.
"So if you want a ticket for So You Think You Can Dance, all you have to do is bring a can of fruit or vegetables or something.
"And I'll come and collect it each week and just take it away.
"And how sad is this? How sad is this in Los Angeles. I get angry with it,” he said.
Angelina Jolie and her two daughters have been left upset by Disney because none of their movies feature African princesses.
The pregnant star and partner Brad Pitt are disappointed by the lack of different cultures featured in children's films and are urging the movie giant to be more diverse.
The actress insists educating their children about culture is important in the Jolie-Pitt household.
She tells OK!: "(So) even the colour of the children in the cartoon matters.
"There still isn't a Disney princess that's African and it's very difficult because our daughters' getting into princesses right now and it upsets me."
Jolie and Pitt have three adopted children: Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, as well as biological daughter Shiloh.
Britney Spears has made two guest appearances on CBS’s How I Met Your Mother, and as far as Neil Patrick Harris is concerned, she’s welcome back any time.
“The door is open for her,” Harris told PEOPLE at an Academy screening of the show at McGee’s Bar & Grill in Manhattan. “We would love (guest stars) who get in the show’s world to stick around if they want to … but I don’t know what the writers have planned.”
Spears played Abby, a ditsy receptionist dating Barney (Harris’s character), but interested in Ted (Josh Radner’s character). Based on some foreshadowing in the script, the pop princess may very well return in season four, says Harris.
“I gave her the address to Ted’s apartment at the end of the last episode, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she showed up again,” he told PEOPLE.
During a Q&A post-screening, the cast reminisced about Spears’s time on set.
“Carter [Bays, the creator] had a great line at the table read. He introduces all the guest cast. He said, ‘And I hope I pronounce this correctly, ‘Britney Spears,’” Josh Radner told fans at McGee’s, the bar that helped inspire the series.
“There were wristbands that we wore on set, so that people didn’t come on to the set. In her world, people go up in the rafters and take pictures,” Harris said.
“We wanted to give her the freedom in a closed environment to be as free to act, and fail, and succeed as she wanted to because that’s the process of doing this,” he continued. “She was lovely, and those two weeks were actually quite swell for us.”
This is her potential next single. I love the lyrics for this song. This post is NOT for haters!

Apparently the hoof's drummer Greg Saunier, producer / multi-instrumentalist, Jon Brion and Wilco avante-guitarist Nels Cline are all "playing together on the film's soundtrack," which presumably means they recorded and wrote the score together. Update: Some details just arrived. "Step Brothers" Director Adam Mckay and Jon Brion had Cline and Saunier come into a studio a few weeks ago to record some music for the film. Some of it was improvised and some of it was already written by Brion. It's unsure whether this material will make the cut yet, but it sounds like Brion is the principal composer on the film.

Rumer Willis arrives at the launch of the new Ocean Pacific (Op) Advertising Campaign Party held on Tuesday in Beverly Hills, California.
Kristin Cavallari and Christina Milian were also there to promote the ad campaign for the new spring/summer line carried exclusively at Walmart.
Josie Maran, Pete Wentz, Corbin Bleu and Wilmer Valderrama also star in the print, radio and online marketing campaign for the Company’s junior and young men’s brand, Op(R), that made its debut in May.
Rumer, 19, said, “When you think of LA and the classic surfer beach vibe, you think of Op. The Op collection does a great job representing that lifestyle.”
Despite Lily Allen’s dire attempt at fronting her own TV show, fellow popstars Girls Aloud are reportedly set to follow in her footsteps after receiving an offer from the BBC worth more than $1 million (£500,000).
The Biology hitmakers are in talks to host an eight-part TV special for the U.K. broadcaster, expected to be called An Audience With Girls Aloud.
A source told Heat: "The girls are yet to sign, but they have all agreed to it.
"They would each be paid £20,000 ($40,000) per show. The band is going strong and they all want to commit to it 100 per cent."
The show will see the five girls interviewing other celebrities.
Let's hope the stress of having their own show doesn't take it's toll like it has on Lily.
Candy Spelling isn't gonna just sit there with her zillion dollars in Bev Hills. She's just hit the jackpot -- again.
As TMZ Vegas spies tell us over the weekend, Candy Dandy was playing the high limit slots (up to $1,000 a pull) at the Bellagio Hotel when she cleaned the clock of a one-armed bandit to the tune of $180,000. To put this in perspective, $180 grand to her is like $8 bucks in our world.
So you think lightning only strikes once? Exactly one year ago in Vegas, Candy -- whose fortune is estimated at $600 mil -- won $200,000 at -- yes, the Bellagio. And yes, on the slots. She was actually up $350,000 at one point but couldn't walk away.
But wait, there's more. Days after her 2007 jackpot, she held a charity raffle and won a car.
Meanwhile, Tori is scrounging on hot dogs that could put her fetus at risk.
I love that she won a car at her own raffle lol. how ~charitable~

If you've seen the movie Shortbus, then you've seen a man humming "The Star-Spangled Banner" with his face buried deep in Jay Brannan's buttcrack. But Jay's not just the receptacle for other people's music, he also makes his own. He plays the acoustic guitar and sings pretty tunes in a pretty way.
His single "Housewife" is out on iTunes now, and a real live album will be online July 1 and in stores July 15.
Just in time for gay marriage in California, Jay Brannan would like to be a housewife. A housewife who has threesomes that involve the rectal application of our national anthem. That's just where he's at.

On Ashley: “We don’t agree all the time. The way we go about business or designing or making a decision is that we come at it from two completely different angles that at the end of the day, even when we don’t think we’re agreeing with each other, we are agreeing. We’re just getting there in different ways. Unless you’re a twin, you honestly can’t know how close twins can be. There’s such a strength, but that also makes it…” Her voice trails off. “When there’s that much love there’s…Well, there’s the opposite of everything, but it stems from love, and it stems from passion. We’re driven people. I do know I can’t work in an office. Ashley, on the other hand, loves going to an office.”
On being sexy: “I feel like I can be sexy when I want to be,” she says. “I think all women are sexy. Some may feel it more than others. I personally think the women who are the most sexy are the women who are truly themselves, whatever that may be.”
On her fashion: “I don’t know—you’re either on the worst-dressed list or you’ve started a fashion trend. I think there’s a real disconnect between the media’s perception of fashion and the fashion world’s idea of fashion. I don’t know why I wear some of the things I wear. I like wearing crazy things sometimes. I like being playful. Sometimes I feel like I’m playing dress-up and becoming a character. It’s sort of like an art. It can change your mood or the way that people are attracted to you.”
Lauren Hutton on MK: “I feel like M.K. is a kindred spirit. She lives an experimental life. When you’re young, you should be trying on lots of things, not just clothes. She understands that. You’re not born with taste. That’s a bunch of hooey. Like everything else, taste is a process of discovery. I like that about her. She’s always discovering her tastes.”
Karl Lagerfeld on MK: “I love a tiny woman in Chanel. Coco herself was tiny, so you don’t need to be a giant to look good in these. I like the way M.K. is mixing Chanel with other things. Life is not a fashion show, and I find a total designer look boring.”
DvF on MK: “Mary-Kate is fragile yet strong...She’s an old soul in a very young girl. Hers is a story that has just begun.”

Last Update: 8:45 pm
SALT LAKE CITY - It was a good idea, but apparently organizers just didn't go through proper channels.
Earlier Tuesday, 2News revealed that Murray resident and American Idol runner-up David Archuleta would perform at a "thank you" concert on Friday night at the E Center -- as a token of gratitude for his Utah fans.
Tickets would be sold this week, and the proceeds would go to charity. But as good as that sounds, it apparently didn't mesh with the corporate heads.
Tuesday afternoon, Archuleta's agent -- Roger Widynowski -- said there would be no concert due to contractural obligations between the 17-year-old and American Idol.
On Saturday, Archuleta and several other Idol contestants will begin touring the country as part of the reality show's official summer concerts.
Widynowski did not go into detail as to why Archuleta could not perform at the E Center -- but just said that the Murray High School student simply could not appear at the non-American Idol sanctioned event.
RWD: Chilli was quoted as saying you were the one she ‘truly did love. I’m not in love with him anymore, but I can’t say I don’t love him.’ Do you think it’s appropriate for her to make these comments considering you’re married with a child?
Usher: I mean, I think it’s a little unrealistic, I’m married (laughs), I’m not a boy. It’s been three years past, you know? But we all have unrealistic goals too. Like shoot, I will always forever love Katie Holmes and Halle Berry. I don’t feel anyway about it. It does appear maybe to be a plug for something. She got a record coming or something?"
I love this man's music, but what an arrogrant, ungrateful bastard. Usher, you're livin' FOUL. Don't nobody want your ass.
It’s not often that I can say that the funniest moment on TV last night happened on CNN…but it did. While I was watching CNN’s political coverage, moderator Anderson Cooper was asking political strategist Donna Brazile about a conversation she had last night with Senator Barack Obama. When Cooper pressed her from some inside scoop, we had this great exchange. So funny!
Anderson Cooper: Did he tell you in that phone conversation, that you had privately with him, about how he plans to do that? How he plans to reach out? How he plans to unify?
Donna Brazile: Of course he’s told everyone that he plans to sit down with Senator Clinton at the right time…”
Anderson Cooper: I’m looking for something he hasn’t told anyone else…just you.
Donna Brazile: Anderson, you’re not my boo.
Anderson Cooper: I wanna be your boo. [pause and laughter] I don’t really even know what that means.
[Brazile looks at her watch]
Donna Brazile: Anderson, are we still on TV?
Anderson Cooper: Yes we are
Donna Brazile: Well, I think I better watch my words
Anderson Cooper:I’m not sure that means exactly….someone can explain it to me later.

Commentary and transcript:
JM: You know what's great about E!—and we kid them all the time—they have been incredibly liberal and good to us. They let us say a lot of stuff. If we piss someone off on the network, they usually don't go, "Hey, they don't say that." They go, "Hey, can you lay off a week? Just don't make fun of Hef this week—he's a little pissed." Why? Because we called him an aging grandpa who's having sex with his granddaughters? You know, that sort of thing. I would say most networks have some false sense of pride. It's just been tremendous that they've been so good to us. They've been able to take a joke. We go after Ryan [Seacrest] all the time, and Ryan is a great sport. He plays clips, that cute little elf munchkin, on his radio show. He's really good to us as well. It's people like Tyra who don't get it and don't like us.
AVC: You don't get a lot of blowback though, do you?
JM: She's the only one that tries to stop us. She's been it. We've heard other people who haven't been exactly happy with us, but then we get other people who are like, "That was great, how you made fun of me!" And I'm like, "Thank you, great! You're welcome."

June 2008 Update: In response to the outrageous number of emails that I have received with questions concerning Midnight Sun, I talked to Stephenie this weekend and she asked me to let everyone know that Midnight Sun is her next project. She has not yet finished writing it (and there is no timeline set up, so we all need to put a lot of effort into being patient for a while longer), but she is definitely still planning on having it published. And, after Breaking Dawn comes out, Stephenie will have much more time to focus on writing Midnight Sun. - Seth

The Brit indie-proggers kick off the second leg of their eco-friendly U.S. tour at Lollapalooza in Chicago (Aug. 1-3). Also on their itinerary is the All Points West Festival in Jersey City's Liberty State Park (Aug. 8-10) and a two-night stint at the Hollywood Bowl in L.A. (Aug. 24-25).
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You recently played a lot of OK Computer at a show for the BBC. Is that an indication of what you might be performing this summer?
COLIN GREENWOOD, BASSIST: No. It will obviously be a lot of stuff from the new record, In Rainbows. But the set list won't be on the back of the laminate, the same songs for the next three months. We've got around 50 songs rotating in our set. What I'm really excited about is the crazy laser light show. I say ''laser light show'' in the loosest sense. What are they called in Star Wars? Lightsabers! You can send pulses of light from the ceiling to the floor. It should be trippy.
Will fans at any point shout for ''Free Bird''?
I think three out of five of the people on the stage wouldn't know what it was. They'd think you were just shouting about animal rights. Is that Lynyrd Skynyrd? You'd be better off shouting for an early New Order song.
Favorite tour-bus activity: Scrabulous or sex?
Well, I think you can get Internet on the tour bus now.... No, we'll catch up on some films. Maybe Radiohead should start a book club. Not on TV. It would just be us on the bus. One week it would be the last Philip Roth and then, the next big bus journey we had, we could talk about the new Vidiadhar Naipaul biography. People do that, don't they?
The other 7 are:
Foo Fighters, Motley Crue, Santagold, Vampire Weekend (lol), Ingrid Michaelson, Dave Mathews Band, A Tribe Called Quest
They all answer the same exact questions (mostly) at the source.

It's no secret Joe Simpson loves money almost as much as his daughter's breasts. He'll do whatever it takes to get his hands on it. He let Pete Wentz shotgun wed Ashlee, and now he's pressuring Tony Romo into proposing to Jessica. Of course, if Tony's not ready for that commitment, Joe's a generous guy and will settle for managing Tony's contract with the Cowboys. I mean, it's only worth $67 mil. Pfft. Pocket change. Us Weekly reports on Joe's shenigans:
"A source tells Us Joe asked Romo, 28, to drop his agent so he could take over his NFL career and $67.5 million contract.
He even offered to broker a deal to sell his engagement and wedding to a magazine should Romo and Jessica, 27, get engaged. "'If you guys have a marriage, I can do the same [sell it] that I did with Ashlee,'" a source quotes him as saying."
Joe Simpson must walk around his house squeezing his daughters' mammaries while saying "Cha-ching." Actually, I know he does. Wanna know how? Joe sold me the exclusive story for ten bucks and a pic of Christina Aguilera's cleavage. I gotta admit: the man can bargain. My initial offer was a half-eaten donut and a lingerie ad from today's paper. That's when he pulled the gun...
NOTE: Why is Tony Romo hiding his face in every single shot? Oh, wait, he's had sex with Jessica Simpson. Never mind!

Just because, here is the video of Beyonce falling. If you find a video of Solange be sure to send it to us.

While millions of women lined up to go see this summer's big blockbuster fantasy about four ugly chicks getting laid by hot guys, Cynthia Nixon's girlfriend is currently the points leader for the "Butchest Lesbian On Earth" award. Congratulations! Contact Music says:
SEX AND THE CITY star CYNTHIA NIXON confesses her lesbian lover CHRISTINE MARINONI hates wearing women's clothes. The actress - who has been dating Marinoni since the end of her marriage to Danny Mozes in 2003 - once tried to encourage her partner to wear feminine clothes. But Marinoni was not interested. She says, "She only wears men's clothes. She won't even wear any kind of women's shoes. "I bought her a pair of cowboy boots that were from a women's department, and she was like, 'Don't do this again.'"Hollywood would have you believe that lesbians have pillow fights in nothing but lip gloss and boy shorts, but in reality, it mostly looks like this. Oh, yeah, baby. I can see why this is so hot. Nothing turns me on more than imagining a chick that looks like Frodo prancing around in her new three-button, non-vented charcoal suit. Ooh, la la.
Cute couple Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer dine at West Hollywood’s Madeo restaurant on Tuesday with Jen’s BFF Courteney Cox and their mutual jewelry designer friend Jennifer Meyer (Tobey Maguire’s wife).
Two days earlier, Aniston took Mayer to visit Cox and her husband David Arquette at their gated beach home in Malibu, Calif.

Finding Forrester star Rob Brown steps into the cleats of Heisman Trophy-winning gridiron giant Ernie Davis in director Gary Fleder's inspirational sports docudrama.

"Gossip" singer Beth Ditto does a spot-on impersonation of a disco ball at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London.
The outspoken singer in one of the most popular bands in Britain calls herself a "fat, feminist lesbian from Arkansas."
She's also talked about her weight: "I just like food too much, and I don't want to change. I spent so much of childhood trying to change, and I just got sick of it. ... I don't want to look like Britney Spears. I just don't want to. She's hideous."
no for real, are you kidding me ? bitch needs to look in the mirror
It's almost impossible to figure out what the hell Amy Wino is talking about half of the time. She was in court this morning to support Blaaaake during his pre-trial. She showed up on Wino time (hours late) and sat in the front row. During the hearing, Wino loudly said, "It's like Disneyland." Who speaks fluent crackie? I have no idea what she means. If it's Disneyland then she's the Matterhorn and her crack hive is the Haunted Mansion.
Blaaake tried to pass Wino a handwritten note, but the court usher wouldn't allow it. Wino got up to leave and whispered, "Fuck you."
Jury selection in Blaaake's trial is set to begin next week. When the trial begins, they better broadcast this shit live OJ-style. I want to see how many times Wino tries to sneak a bump right there in court. She thinks she's so slick.
Here's Wino on her way home after court. She's carrying a bottle of Malibu. She probably uses it as mouthwash. That shit is nasty!
I'm with MK on this one, Malibu is effing NASTY. The only thing worse is Bacardi Superior, I can't even smell that stuff without wanting to puke.

Britney shooting 'Radar' video in London?
Current manager of Britney Spears, Larry Rudolph have confirmed that the Slick City themed video for "Radar" will be shot in Chelsea, London. She will be leaving the States sometime during next week. "Radar", that is going to adds on June 24th, will be then released with gorgeous new music video. Sources tell that
The latest craze in the world of sports entertainment is "the shoot tape," which is a video recording of what amounts to a tell-all book. Former Extreme Icon The Sandman gave such an interview recently and was asked "what's the wildest thing you've ever seen behind the scenes?" The cigarette-smoking, beer drinking hardcore brawler, who was last seen in WWE's version of ECW, went on to tell a story about the controversial Tammy "Sunny" Sytch performing certain acts with Sabu and Joey Matthews (Joey Mercury from Smackdown) while Tammy's then-fiance Chris Candido was running around the dressing room looking for her. What makes the story even more salacious is that Sandman insists Sabu was holding SOMAS (a muscle relaxer very popular with wrestlers, boxers, and football players) over Tammy's head until she was done with the dirty deed. This story has been told for a while in locker rooms, but now it's gone public, and is just one of the many wild sex stories that have been picking up momentum about Sunny. To see the Sandman tell the story, along with some uber-hot pictures of Tammy, go here: http://www.wrestlingnewsdesk.com/WND/the_news/women_of_wrestling/controversial_%22sunny%22_video%2c__new_pics_of_missy_hyatt%2c_and_linda_hogan_ripped_to_shreds_200806021345.htm. It's funny that this story comes out now, because Sunny was about to get offered a job in TNA Wrestling on SpikeTV, but they withdrew any sign of interest after hearing of an incident between Sunny and Booker T at a recent convention.

Which tabloid had the best cover this week?
As party favors go, a brand-new song from Paul McCartney might be tough to beat.
At least that's what the former Beatle is hoping for, promising the ditty to anyone and everyone who donates a minimum of $25 to attend a McCartney-hosted online dinner party.
The virtual bash, called Night of a Thousand Dinners, takes place Thursday night in conjunction with World Environment Day and to benefit the Adopt-A-Minefield campaign, for which McCartney is an ambassador.
Which means, come Friday, fans will no longer be able to say Heather Mills (EW) never did anything for them.
In exchange for the virtual head count, and the coin, guests of the online party will be able to download McCartney's hitherto unreleased tune "Lifelong Passion (Sail Away)," which he recorded under the name The Fireman.
"The Night of a Thousand Dinners is not only a great way to raise money for a just cause, it's also a good way for friends and family to have fun together," McCartney said. "With the growing concerns about world hunger, it should be a priority to clear arable land of land mines so that communities can once again grow their own food."
Access to the global online benefit will be granted to all registered users through the singer's website on Thursday evening. And if the promise of a new song isn't enough to tempt RSVPs, foodies will be pleased to know the "dinner" will include recipes for an all-vegetarian menu composed by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.
The recipes and the song will be available online June 5-12.
I can't wait! His work as The Fireman is top-notch. :)

The untitled book will offer readers Trick Daddy’s personal, honest account of his life, from his upbringing in Miami’s notorious Liberty Square Housing Development [aka the “Pork’n’Beans Projects”], to his successes in the entertainment industry.

American rock band Weezer, famous for hits such as "Beverly Hills" and "My Name Is Jonas," has released the Japanese version of their new album "The Red Album" today.
As a special surprise for the Japanese listeners, Weezer did a cover of one of BoA's Japanese ballads entitled "Meri Kuri" as a bonus track. Lead singer Rivers Comuo of Weezer commented that he was "instantly taken" by the song.
Here is the cover:
Here is the original version by BoA:

I think it's pretty cool that a group that only sings in English would have the guts to sing a song in Japanese. Plus, BoA is awesome.

Angelina Jolie never wanted to have children of her own - but her love for partner Brad Pitt changed her mind.
The Tomb Raider star had no desire to have biological kids and was focused on adopting tots from around the world.
But the actress - who is expecting twins with Pitt - admits it all changed once she fell for Pitt after meeting on the set of 2005 movie Mr and Mrs Smith.
She tells Britain's Ok! magazine, "I was dead set on always adopting and it always felt right to me, there were children who needed a home and I had no maternal desire to have children.
"But that changes when you meet someone you love and so your family changes in direction. That was my big surprise."
Jolie and Pitt have three adopted children: Maddox, six; Pax, four, and Zahara, three, as well as biological daughter Shiloh, two.
EDIT: OK, the subject? Kidding. You know how we'll have photos here of her with Pax and Shiloh's not there and everyone's like "OMG, SHE CLEARLY HATES HER!!1"? Yeah. Kidding. Sheesh.
LOL. I LOVE HIM. Seeing Sounds = June 10th, btw.
In the month since Nick Cannon’s became Mr. Mariah Carey, he’s racked up some high-priced purchases. But who’s really paying for them? According to the National Enquirer, all the designer duds and other treats come courtesy of his new wife’s bank account.
“Nick’s having a field day with Mariah’s moolah!” a friend of the diva told the Enquirer. “His head is spinning with the possibilities her black Amex card affords. For now, Mariah is being indulgent with his spending spree, but at the same time, it’s sent up a red flag.”
Shortly after the wedding, the actor-rapper was even seen test-driving a $120,000 Maserati Quattroporte. “He already has at least six luxury cars, including a Rolls-Royce Phantom and a Cadillac Escalade,” the insider said. “So why would he need another set of wheels? He’s taking advantage of Mariah’s generosity.”
Another Mariah pal points to Nick’s wedding bling, a heavily bejeweled band, as the sort of thing he expects Mariah to provide. “It’s garish and tacky — and yet another example of Nick’s extravagance at Mariah’s expense," the source told the magazine. “It’s as if Nick is trying to spend as much as he can as fast as he can — because deep down he knows the gravy train could stop at any time.”
Check out Solange’s new video for “I Decided,” the first single off her sophomore album SoL-AngeL and The Hadley St. Dreams, in stores August 26th. The video was directed by Melina (Beyoncé, Snoop, Eve) and deals with pop culture from the ’60s to the future. The video is sick!
THIS IS THE BEST MUSIC VIDEO I HAVE EVER SEEN
Sporty-Turned-Mother Teresa Spice!
Spice Girl Mel C could be set to see how teenagers in one of Birmingham's most deprived areas are turning their backs on gang and gun crime - after she was "ambushed" by a Midland MP's aide at one of the city's top hair salons.
The singer, formerly known as Sporty Spice, was spotted at the Nicky Clarke salon, in The Mailbox, by Elaina Cohen, special adviser to Birmingham Perry Barr MP Khalid Mahmood.
Miss Cohen, who has worked with various youth projects based at South Aston Community Association, spotted the former Spice Girl having her hair done on Saturday afternoon and so bowled up to her and handed her a parliamentary business card.
“I just saw it as an opportunity to tell her about the work we do in Aston and what these amazing young people do, determined to turn their backs on gangs and gun crime,” said Miss Cohen. “I asked her if she’d be interested in coming along to see them and hear their music, hear what they can do, and she said ‘Oh yeah, that could be quite cool.’
“She was utterly delightful. She could have been rude or told me to go away but she didn’t, so it was just a bit of Girl Power going down in the salon.”
Miss Cohen works with a number of young people, including 20-year-old Neveilla Briscoe, who runs Alternative Music Industries and J & N Productions, which write and produce songs and music for local singers and musicians.
Miss Briscoe admitted she was “overwhelmed” to hear a Spice Girl might come along to hear local youngsters perform.
“I’m really excited about this prospect, so I can only imagine how excited the kids will be, because they’ve been praying that one day something might happen, that someday someone might hear them and help them.”
mmmh you know what time it is...
On a day when feminism in Hollywood swings wildly between pure gender-pandering and impassioned scrotum-punching, we're hearing about one developing project that could potentially split the difference: I Spit on Your Grave, a remake of the notorious 1978 rape-revenge film that made so many friends upon its initial release ("Attending it was one of the most depressing experiences of my life," Roger Ebert wrote in his original review).
But despite revisionists who have since accorded political meaning to director Meir Zarchi's grotty castrations and disembowelments, the producers at CineTel Films are apparently sticking to the straight crapsploitation playbook:
"As reviled as it was when originally released, I Spit on Your Grave was a precursor to a slew of female revenge film hits, [CineTel president Paul] Hertzberg said. Contemporary genre fare has become so graphically violent that the original doesn't seem as outrageous as it did 30 years ago. Hertzberg is listening to pitches from writers on how to ratchet up the shock factor.
"After seeing what was done with an R rating on films like Saw and Hostel, we think we can modernize this story, be competitive with what this marketplace expects and not have to aim for an NC-17 or X rating," Hertzberg said.
Good for them, but let's hope they get really creative; what is Michael Patrick King doing with that first-look deal at DreamWorks, anyway?
With the near-simultaneous theatrical premiere of War Inc. (First Look Studios)—a strange, scruffy, black-as-pitch little comedy about the occupation of "Turaqistan"—and the DVD release of Grace Is Gone (the Weinstein Co.)—last year's critically praised but scarcely seen drama about a military widower—John Cusack has entered a curious new phase in his long and unpredictable career: the actor as activist.
The football star, who has been sectioned, made the dramatic statement as he recovered in a police station after a night out drinking.
Venables, who managed Gascoigne when he played for England and Tottenham Hotspur, said he had no doubt Gascoigne meant it and that without treatment the former player was in serious danger of killing himself or somebody else.
I really hope he can get well.

ITunes customers can now buy music from Radiohead's EMI label days, following a change in heart on the part of the band regarding the unbundling of albums into individual songs.
"There has been massive demand for Radiohead's music on iTunes," EMI communications SVP Jeanne Meyer told Listening Post. "Once In Rainbows was unbundled, it was a natural progression to unbundle (the rest of) their catalog" so that it would be available there.
Radiohead had previously allowed EMI to sell its albums digitally on music services only in album form. Apple refuses to do this, so Radiohead declined to sell its music on iTunes -- by far the largest of the digital music stores. However, the band's approach changed with In Rainbows, which the band released for unbundled sale on iTunes following its pricing-optional debut.
Radiohead's back catalog of EMI albums, its videos and its new Greatest Hits album are all available in the iTunes Plus store, in the DRM-free AAC format.
Take that, happy people.

Sarah Harding snapped looking slimmer than ever
appears to be drastically losing weight on the Girls Aloud tour.
The singer, 26, was snapped looking pale and gaunt at the weekend, her hollow cheekbones evident to see beneath her oversized sunglasses.
And it's thought she’s deliberately trying to compete with tiny bandmate Cheryl Cole, 24.
‘All the girls seem to be competing with each other to see who can eat the least,’ a source tells the Sunday Mirror.
‘It’s particularly bad with Cheryl and Sarah. If one has fruit instead of a meal, then so will the other.
‘They are on the treadmill all the time because they want to look good in their skimpy outfits.’
i think this is more a case of them being on tour tbqh + join ontd_aloud!
Hayden Panttiere parties in London's finest
Hayden was spotted catching a flight out of LAX earlier this week. And it turns out she was headed across the pond.
The “I Love You Beth Cooper” babe was spotted at the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards last night in London, England. And she looked stunning in a ruffled red dress with a pair of sparkly gold peep-toe heels.
And following dinner, Hayden just wanted to let loose a bit, so she made her way to nearby Crystal Nightclub, where she partied until 3am.
Nikki Cox and her big, bold lips shop at the Hermes boutique on Madison Avenue in New York City on Tuesday.
The former Las Vegas star was also accompanied by her pet pooch and her actor husband Jay Mohr (Professor Rick Payne from the hit CBS show, Ghost Whisperer).
Nikki just turned 30 this past Monday. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, COX!
She's 30 years old....OMG, she looks so much older.
She used to be pretty. I can't believe she messed up her face like that.
Poor Jay Mohr......talk about bait and switch.

John (Owen Wilson) and Jenny (Jennifer Aniston) were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wiggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same.
Marley grew into a barreling, ninety-seven-pound streamroller of a Labrador retriever. He crashed through screen doors, gouged through drywall, and stole women's undergarments. Obedience school did no good -- Marley was expelled.
But just as Marley joyfully refused any limits on his behavior, his love and loyalty were boundless, too. Marley remained a model of devotion, even when his family was at its wit's end. Unconditional love, they would learn, comes in many forms.
Marley & Me is John Grogan's funny, unforgettable tribute to this wonderful, wildly neurotic Lab and the meaning he brought to their lives.
idk, I haven't read the book but thought it might be excited for those of you who have...
Plus, anything with cute puppies is worth posting.
An inquest into the death of Smooth Radio presenter Kevin Greening has shown that he died from a drugs overdose after taking part in a gay bondage session. Westminster Coroner's Court heard that the former BBC Radio 1 DJ had indulged in illegal drugs and unorthodox sexual behaviour before being found dead in a flat in Wandsworth, south London in December last year.
Coroner, Paul Knapman who recorded a verdict of misadventure said, "He was found dead having indulged in unorthodox sexual behaviour involving restraint equipment and illegal drugs." On the day he died, he had been in a leather sling attached to scaffolding in the bedroom of the flat occupied by his boyfriend Sean Griffin and at the time, the inquest heard, Mr Greening was still wearing a rubber suit and had cling film and "gaffer tape" around him. Recording his verdict, Mr Knapman said Mr Greening died from a "mixed drugs toxicity" or overdose and not from being held "in a form of bondage".
Sean Griffin, who was initially arrested on suspicion of murder but was later released without charge, was asked by Dr Knapman to confirm that at all times their activity had been "perfectly consensual" between the two men in the privacy of the flat, to which Mr Griffin replied: "Indeed... Kevin and I had a very happy and very vigorous sex life...It was not conventional by heterosexual norms perhaps, but it was a sex life which was vigorous and imaginative and we enjoyed each other." It was also revealed at the inquest that tests on Kevin's body after his death found traces of cocaine and ecstasy.
