Pete Wentz to World: "I CAN READ, U GUIZ!"



Having already admitted that he's turning into his own father in anticipation of the arrival of his and wife Ashlee Simpson's baby, Pete Wentz tells PEOPLE that when it comes to prepping to become a parent, "I'm reading a lot of books."

The Fall Out Boy bassist, 28, at his Angels & King nightspot in Chicago with Ashlee nearby, explains, "The biggest one is The Expectant Father. It's a really good one."

Not that the printed page is teaching him all he needs to know. Jokingly, he adds, "Also, I've watched Look Who's Talking and Look Who's Talking Too. I'd be worried if the baby sounded like Bruce Willis."

As for wise words from his father, Wentz says, "The best advice my dad has given me was, go with your gut. And he said you can't really have expectations. If I have expectations that he's going to be a rock star, I'm sure he'll come out being into sports, and if I have expectations that he'll be into sports then he'll be into math or something."

Having digested that, Wentz says, "I'm just going into taking it one step at a time, and I'm just excited to meet the baby."

In terms of further preparations, "We'll baby-proof the house," he says, "getting the nursery ready." Regarding its theme, "It's not a secret, but it's more of a private thing. I haven't really figured it out yet, so I don't want to go out there and say what it is and then have it not be that."

Nor, when asked if the nursery is pink, will he divulge a color scheme. "Contrary to the stories out there, we don't know the sex of the baby," he says. "I'm a person that always likes to be surprised, so I like to wait for the surprise."

In the meantime, he says, "Ashlee's a trouper. She's been really good with this. She's probably one of the most health conscious, spiritually free pregnant women I've even been around."

Homicide @ Lil Kim Birthday Party

Photobucket

NEW YORK (AP) -- A bar worker at a popular Times Squares karaoke club was arrested Thursday after confessing to beating a woman to death with a pipe on the club's roof during an argument, police said.

Rapper Lil' Kim's birthday party was held Saturday at the Spotlight Live karaoke club.

Syed Rahman, 24, admitted he smashed Ingrid Rivera over the head at about 2:45 a.m. Monday during a birthday party for rapper Lil' Kim that the victim had paid to attend, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said at a news conference.

Her body was discovered Wednesday afternoon.

It was unclear what Rahman and Rivera, who had met for the first time inside Spotlight Live club that night, were arguing about. But a friend of Rivera pointed police to Rahman by telling them she had fought off his sexual advances on the roof shortly before the slaying, Kelly said.

Charges against Rahman -- who had worked at the club for four years and had no criminal record -- were pending. Authorities did not have the name of his lawyer.

The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide Thursday after an autopsy found that the 24-year-old Rivera died from a blow to the head.

Police said Rivera was a Lil' Kim fan who arrived at the party around 9:30 p.m. with a bouquet she had hoped to give to the rapper. During the evening, she and her friend spoke with Rahman while drinking at the bar.

At one point, Rivera was kicked out the club for accidentally entering the men's rest room, police said. Rivera's friend said that around the same time, Rahman lured her to the roof by claiming Rivera was there.

When the friend rebuffed the suspect, he located the victim outside and "told her could get her back in," Kelly said.

He took Rivera in through the employee entrance, then up to the roof in a service elevator, police said. Once there, he beat her inside a utility shed, killing her instantly, police said.

Police said that after Rivera's mother reported her missing Tuesday, officers went to the club Wednesday to review security videotape. Sometime after they left, a repairman discovered her body.

A distraught Ingrid Estrada said Rivera, a customer service agent at John F. Kennedy International Airport for British Airways, was her only daughter whom she had raised as a single mother. She described her as "my life, my happiness."

Spotlight Live has become a popular tourist attraction by offering an "American Idol"-like experience. Guests perform with backup dancers and singers on a large stage, and the audience can vote for their favorite singers.

But it wasn't the first time the nightclub has seen trouble. In January, a 20-year-old Newark, New Jersey, man was stabbed to death after an argument inside spilled out onto the sidewalk and turned into a brawl. Five other men also were stabbed.

The club issued a statement expressing its condolences to the family of the victim.

"We are shocked by this terrible tragedy and our hearts go out to Ingrid Rivera's family and friends. We are grateful to the New York Police Department for arresting a suspect in this crime. We continue to cooperate with police and answer any questions they may have," the club said.

Lil' Kim's spokesman, Ronn Torossian, said in an e-mailed statement that Wednesday night was "the first (she) has heard of this matter." It's also unclear whether other celebrities were at the club at the time of the killing.

In July 2006, Lil' Kim got out of a federal detention center in Philadelphia after nearly 10 months behind bars for lying about a shootout outside a Manhattan hip-hop radio station. She was released early for good behavior.

Woman gets hemorrhoids after being elbowed by Pastor Osteen

HOUSTON, Texas (AP) -- She's the wife of a renowned evangelical pastor and one of the leaders of a Houston megachurch, but Victoria Osteen is being accused of behavior that wasn't very Christian.

Victoria Osteen leaves the courtroom with her husband, Joel Osteen, on Wednesday in Houston, Texas.
1 of 2

Opening arguments were set for Thursday in a lawsuit that accuses Victoria Osteen of assaulting Continental Airlines flight attendant Sharon Brown before the start of a 2005 flight from Houston to Vail, Colorado.

The lawyer for Victoria Osteen called the lawsuit silly and denied that her client assaulted Brown. Brown's attorney, Reginald McKamie, said he hopes the trial will show "that celebrity status doesn't take precedence."

Victoria Osteen is co-pastor at Lakewood Church, where her husband, Joel Osteen, preaches and where about 42,000 people flock each week. Joel Osteen's weekly television address is broadcast nationally and internationally.

Brown alleges Victoria Osteen threw her against a bathroom door and elbowed her in the left breast during an outburst over a stain on her first-class seat.
The Federal Aviation Administration fined Victoria Osteen $3,000 for interfering with a crew member.

Victoria Osteen "clearly was angry on this flight," McKamie said.

Brown wants an apology and punitive damages amounting to 10 percent of Victoria Osteen's net worth as part of her suit.

A 12-person jury was seated Wednesday after lawyers spent several hours questioning a pool of 130 people. The questioning touched on religious beliefs, celebrity and the public's perception of preachers and televangelists.

Many of those in the jury pool said they had been to Lakewood Church and acknowledged holding the Osteens in high regard and being star-struck by them.

But other potential jurors said they didn't like preachers or televangelists and that ministers can lie.

Joel Osteen was at his wife's side Wednesday in court. McKamie said he expected to call the couple as witnesses.

According to an FAA report, Victoria Osteen pushed and elbowed Brown in an attempt to get to the plane's cockpit after two other attendants had not cleaned a liquid on her armrest.

Brown's suit says the flight attendants asked to have Victoria Osteen removed from the plane. Victoria Osteen's lawyer, Rusty Hardin, says his client and her family left voluntarily. The incident delayed the flight about 2½ hours.

Hardin asked that the FAA report's findings not be allowed in the trial, saying the agency's investigation was incomplete. State District Judge Patricia Hancock said she would make a decision later.

Brown had previously said she was attacked in another incident by an airport employee, according to a deposition she gave in the case.

According to court documents, Brown says that she suffers from anxiety and hemorrhoids because of the incident involving Victoria Osteen and said her faith was affected. She is also suing Victoria Osteen for medical expenses for counseling.

lololol am I the only one who thinks it's hilarious that she has HEMORRHOIDS over being elbowed in the BREAST?! Her FAITH was affected? Get outta here!

She Was Meant For Him .. lame, I know




Jewel's a newlywed.

The singer and her longtime boyfriend, rodeo champion Ty Murray, eloped to the Bahamas and exchanged vows in a private ceremony Thursday night, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

"She wore a traditional wedding gown, while Ty wore his favorite blue jeans, white shirt and cowboy hat," says Jewel's rep, Eileen Thompson. "The couple is very happy and look forward to enjoying their honeymoon."

The pair, who never announced an engagement, have been together for ten years and share a 2,200-acre ranchin Stephenville, Texas. Murray, 38, who hosted Ty Murray's Celebrity Bull-Riding Challenge on CMT last year, currently stars in the video for his wife's new country single, "I Do."

At a charity event in Nashville days before the wedding, Jewel, 34, said of marriage, "It's something that needs to be taken seriously."

Just last year, she told PEOPLE that she and Murray were in no rush to wed.

"We don't know if there's a point – we've lapped our friends who've gotten married and divorced," she explained. "We probably would if we had kids – we're just not sure we want them yet. But we've had something really special already."

muse news



Muse have confirmed that they did provide the music for a new Streets track which surfaced on the internet this weekend - but deny it will appear on Mike Skinner's new album.

The collaboration, entitled "Who Knows Who", appeared on the message boards of Muse's official website yesterday (Aug 3) and features Streets mainman Skinner talking over a heavy rock track.

However, the band have now posted an official statement at Muse.mu to dismiss the song, recorded a few months ago, as nothing more than "a bit of a laugh".

"(It) was the result of a late night jam session and something we did for a bit of a laugh featuring a blues riff we have been playing live recently upon which Skinner recorded some vocals," the statement reads.

"It is not intended to be a serious release so we are happy for it to be leaked around unofficially. Hope you enjoy, Cheers."

A link-up between the two acts was first mooted in April, when Muse frontman Matt Bellamy told BBC 6Music that he wanted to create "England's answer to Rage Against The Machine".

André 3000 made it on The Sartorialist


On the Street...Andre Benjamin, Florence

So it was the last day of Pitti, really hot in Florence and after being outside all day shooting the heat was starting to get to me. All I wanted to do was stop into a few shops on my way back to the hotel and then spend the rest of the night working on images in my air conditioned room.

At around 6:45 I popped into Boggi. The place was about to close and there was only one other guy in the shop. Now, I had just watched the movie Semi-Pro on the plane on the way over and the guy in the shop looked surprisingly similiar to Coffee Black. I didn't think it was him because it was just so out of context. I got up the courage to ask if he was the guy in the movie, and just about the time he said yes I remembered his name (thank God!). Of course I knew all about him, but again because it was so out of context I was blanking.

Anyway, I told him I did a blog called The Sartorialist and now he was all excited because he said that he loved the blog and looks at it often. Now I'm totally blushing - I know a lot of people look at my blog but i never think it is someone like him (or Kanye!) (and by "him" I mean any big star)

So , of course I ask if we can go pop outside and take a fast shot.
We find a great background and the photo above is that moment. Honestly, I had to take a few shots becasue i was still so psyched that this was happening.

We went back to the store and he ended up buying the blue knit shirt that I recommended (i'm wearing mine in the Style.com video a few post down).

Anyway, that is the back story of this photo.

Sideshow Bob can never catch a break



A former presidential aide claims in a lawsuit that plot and marketing elements of the Kevin Costner and Kelsey Grammer movie "Swing Vote" were stolen from him.

Political commentator Bradley Blakeman, a former deputy assistant to President Bush for appointments and scheduling, said in the lawsuit filed Thursday that he gave a copyrighted screenplay entitled "Go November" to Grammer in 2006.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court on Long Island, claims Grammer agreed to develop the project and star as an incumbent Republican president but ended up portraying a similar role in "Swing Vote," which was released Aug. 1.

A spokesman for Grammer and his production company, both named in the lawsuit, dismissed the claims as frivolous.

"I am not sure why Kelsey was even named in this suit," spokesman Stan Rosenfield wrote in an e-mail. "He was an actor who signed on to the project AFTER the script was written."

Blakeman's lawsuit, however, claims the former "Cheers" and "Frasier" actor told him to consult a producer who later told him repeatedly that they were interviewing potential screenwriters and planned to go ahead with the project.

The lawsuit claims Blakeman's screenplay shared a basic premise with "Swing Vote," although it focused on an election hinging on multiple swing voters instead of one swing voter.

Blakeman claims "Swing Vote" incorporated other elements that he proposed, including: the timing of the film's release, the use of real-life newscasters as actors playing themselves, the use of dirty tricks by both major political parties, marketing strategies and other plot points.

"Essentially, except for the character names and the relationship developed between the main characters played by defendant Kevin Costner and his daughter, the entire concept of 'Swing Vote' ... was taken from the copyrighted work," Blakeman's lawsuit claims.

The Walt Disney Co. is named as a defendant in the suit, as is Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group Inc. and Disney division Touchstone Pictures, which distributed "Swing Vote." Costner and the writers of "Swing Vote" also are among those named.

Spokeswomen for Disney and for distributor Treehouse Films said they hadn't seen the lawsuit and wouldn't comment. A spokesman for Costner, who helped finance the movie, said the "Dances with Wolves" and "Field of Dreams" actor was on vacation and couldn't be reached.

Blakeman's lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

Grammer was hospitalized in New York in late July after feeling faint, which Rosenfield said was possibly due to his heart medication. Grammer suffered a mild heart attack in late May.

I don't know about you guys... But, with all of those photo shoots, and the various posters I saw hung all over Manhattan, this is what they give us? The most stylish movie of the summer, based on a show where fashion was more important that plot gives us a botched photoshopped cover with a crammed in logo? For reals?

Paris Hilton: Soon to be a Cartoon?


Paris Hilton is dishing about developing and starring in a new cartoon!


"Actually, I've created a superhero with [Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee], which is [based on] me, and we're doing a cartoon right now with MTV," she tells San Diego's CityBeat.


Which begs the question, which superhero power would the
paparazzi-chased socialite most like to have? "To be invisible -- that
would be fun," she says.


And further along those fantastical lines, Paris finally addresses
which "Star Trek" character she'd hook up with: "None. I have a
boyfriend, and, um, I don't watch 'Star Trek.'"

Britney Spears Makes a Return to MTV's Big Night Marc Malkin
Thu Aug 7, 3:29 PM ET


Los Angeles (E! Online) - Britney Spears apparently isn't feeling any ill will toward MTV after her disastrous performance at last year's Video Music Awards.

ADVERTISEMENT

The well-on-her-way-to-a-comeback pop princess will appear in a television promo for this year's VMAs.

Read on for all the deets...

She shot the spot on Tuesday at the Paramount lot in Hollywood (the site of this year's show) with first-time host, British bad-boy comedian and Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Russell Brand.

"It was mostly ad-libbed, with Russell asking her for advice about hosting the show," a source tells me. "There's also a 9,000-pound elephant in it, as in 'the elephant in the room.' "

So, does this mean Ms. Spears, who is up for two VMAs this year, will be performing on the big night when it airs live on Sept. 7?

A rep for MTV declined to comment on the possibility.

Making A Boob


Lils posted a new MySpace blog about yesterday's boobie incident:

hello , i wore a loose fitting t shirt yesterday . I was very hot in London yesterday , and it's no secret I don't like wearing bras , besides i don't need to, measuring in at 32A it hardly seems necessary .My boob fell out twice and people on the blogs are saying it was a publicity stunt . Can I just say , i have been keeping myself very much to myself recently , i've been gardening , decorating my new flat and looking after my greiving grandfather .

If i wanted publicity , i'd be accepting invitations not to mention money for turning up to glamourous events . I'm actually trying really hard to be out of the public eye , as I'm really proud of the work i've put into my album and I want people to appreciate the music , yes I enjoy attention and praise , thats why i went into this job . But don't accuse me of purposely slipping out of my clothes to get attention and press . I hate the fact that there are always 10 middle aged men following me everywhere that i go .

I understand that it's the price i pay for having a nice house and nice clothes , and i treat them with courtesy when i don't think that they particularly deserve it . i'm a very independent person and I like to live as normal a life as anybody where I can ,I live by myself , i drive myself around and run all my errands by myself . It's actually incredibly embarrasing and lonely when I'm walking down the street and men are chasing me with their cameras , drawing attention to me and people then pointing and taking out their camera's and phones all getting in on the action . I'm 5"2 i'm 23 and this stuff gets to me every so often , so when you see pictures of " lily looking , glum" or " lily in tears , again" it's not because i'm upset about my relationships or because i'm hungover . It's because i'm on my own and people are pointing at me like an animal in the zoo , talking about me as if i'm not there, meanwhile 10 -20 guys are all making money catching every second of it . Anyway my point is , i would never use my body in that way , I'm just not that kind of girl .

Fun With Dick and Dumbdumb.



Something about Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's habit of posing like cloying robotic clowns in staged photographs reminds me of those simplistic Dick and Jane books that were used to teach kids to read back in the 1950's. Riveting story lines involving the adventures of Dick and Jane typically went like this: See Dick run. Run, Dick, run. Run, run, run. Jane has a toy. It is a red toy. Heidi and Spencer are about as interesting and complex as sawdust as those repetitive Dick and Jane stories, so why not use them in an updated version?



Collapse )

There could be several volumes, maybe even one devoted exclusively to holidays: Christmas, Easter, Valentine's Day, Independence Day, Mother's Day, Halloween, National Gun Day, you name it. Kids would love it! Since Heidi claims to be such a devoted Bible thumper, perhaps they could even create a Christian version of the story to go along with the Christian album she wants to record. So much fun with Heidi and Spencer!

'Porno' gets an R rating from the MPAA

 

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Filmmaker Kevin Smith has won an appeal to lower the rating for his comedy "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" from an adults-only NC-17 to an R. 

Kevin Smith dodged the NC-17 bullet with his new film, "Zack and Miri Make a Porno."

Motion Picture Association of America spokeswoman Elizabeth Kaltman said Tuesday the rating was revised after the group's appeals board viewed the movie.

"We didn't set out to make an NC-17 film. That's just commercial suicide," Smith told The Associated Press.

The NC-17 rating would have prohibited anyone younger than 17 from seeing it. With an R rating, those under 17 can see it in the company of an adult.

"Zack and Miri," due out October 31 from the Weinstein Co., stars Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks as best friends and roommates who try to make a homemade porn flick to dig themselves out of debt.

Smith said the MPAA ratings board objected to two sex scenes involving co-stars Jason Mewes and Katie Morgan. After the movie's initial NC-17 rating, Smith said he trimmed those scenes as far as he was willing to go but was unable to convince the board to lower the rating.

"They felt it was rather sexually graphic. My point is, it was comically graphic. All the sex in the movie with the exception of one scene is very cartoonish, very campy," Smith said. "It wasn't designed to titillate."

The appeals board, a separate panel from the ratings board, viewed the movie Tuesday, and Smith presented his arguments. It was the third time Smith successfully talked his way down to a lower rating: His 1994 debut "Clerks" initially received an NC-17 rating that was reduced to an R on appeal, while his 2003 film "Jersey Girl" was reduced to PG-13 after first being rated R.

Smith said the title alone should be enough to caution audiences about the contents.

"Anybody not inclined to see a movie with 'Porno' in the title is not going to see it, so it kind of regulates itself to a degree," Smith said. "And anybody who is going is not going to be surprised by what they see."

The 1st cut of the new Trek film is done, remains sexy while doing so



The first cut of Star Trek XI was recently screened for Paramount Studio Boss Brad Grey and other Paramount bigwigs who were impressed with the quality of the film.

As reported by TrekMovie.com, the first cut was completed four months after principal photography wrapped on Star Trek XI by J.J. Abrams and editors Maryann Brandon and Mary Jo Markey.

The screening, held last week, was a big success. Various comments coming from different sources who were privileged to watch the initial effort ranged from "a hit," and "very impressive," to "far beyond expectations." Expectations for Star Trek XI have been high and were a factor in the movie being moved from its original December 2008 release date to May 2009.

There is still much work to be done, including the special effects and the music, which will be done by Michael Giacchino. Fans are waiting for the release of the theatrical trailer, which is edited, but is not yet finalized. The trailer is expected out sometime this year.

John Barrowman is a geek, remains geeky while doing so



"I am proud to say that I am a G-Double-E-K," John Barrowman declares.

It's not something you'd expect to come out of Barrowman's mouth. With his impressive stature, dashing good looks and enough charisma to make George Clooney jealous, the Doctor Who and Torchwood star looks like he'd be more comfortable in an Armani commercial than professing his social ineptness. If you didn't know better, you'd never suspect the 41-year-old dreamboat of being Scottish either; Barrowman speaks with a flawless American accent that he learned after moving to the United States when he was nine.

"I didn't get rid of my accent," he explains. "I just learned how to speak like American kids because they made fun of my Scottish accent and I didn't want to be bullied. When I'm back in the U. K. with Scottish people, I actually go back to my Scottish accent."

But even across the pond, Barrowman is better known for his American dialect, playing the charming, omnisexual Captain Jack Harkness on BBC's Doctor Who and its spinoff, Torchwood.

Don't be fooled, though; Barrowman is the first to admit that he is just as fascinated by his shows' mythology and minutiae as any of his fans.

"I grew up watching Doctor Who," he says. "I'm of the Star Wars generation; I love science fiction. Star Trek: The Next Generation, Battlestar Galactica-- love 'em."

Which is why it was a dream come true when he landed the role of Jack during the first season of Doctor Who's revival in 2005. Barrowman was initially only supposed to appear in a few episodes, but the huge fan response prompted the BBC to develop a spinoff called Torchwood (an anagram of Doctor Who), in which Captain Jack and his crackerjack team of specialists investigate alien activity in Cardiff, Wales. The show has become such a pop culture phenomenon in the U. K., the U. S. and Canada that it's almost too much for Barrowman's inner geek to handle.

"I love every morning, getting up to go to work because that little boy inside of me jumps with excitement every time I'm going to fight an alien or shoot a rocket gun or be on a spaceship or be with the Doctor or get onto the TARDIS," he gushes. "So every time I'm working on it, I'm really, really happy."

Creepy Early Concept Art For Ledger's Joker



If you thought that
Heath Ledger's Glasgow grin in The Dark Knight was gruesome, consider that it may have actually been tame. Peter over at /film has scanned in a bunch of images from the making-of book
, and they illustrate a few of the early Joker ideas that were created in pre-production, before Ledger was cast (check out a couple in the gallery below, and more over at Slash).

Who Is Messing With Blake & Penn?



Rush & Molly from the NY Daily News report that someone has been RSVP-ing for Gossip Girl couple Blake Lively and Penn Badgley for events, without asking for permission or telling the couple. Apparantly the couple were confirmed to show up to the Kick It to Malaria! soccer tournament on Tuesday (August 5) and because they didn’t show, they left about 300 kids disapointed. A rep for Lively said that the actress had never even heard of the event, “Blake is never allowed to be RSVPed for events during the week because she’s filming for ‘Gossip Girl.’ She would never lend her name if she wasn’t able to attend. There’s something fishy going on.”

Clay Aiken becomes a dad (more details)




Clay Aiken is a daddy!

The former American Idol contestant and music producer Jaymes Foster welcomed a baby boy Friday morning, the singer said in a statement on his Web site.

"HE'S HERE!" Aiken writes. "My dear friend, Jaymes, and I are so excited to announce the birth of Parker Foster Aiken (No hyphens. One first name. One middle name. One last name.)"

Parker, whose name is his grandmother Faye's middle name, weighed 6 lbs., 2 oz. and was 19 inches long. He was born at 8:08 a.m.

"Wow ... 8:08 ... 08/08/08," added Aiken. "The little man is healthy, happy, and as loud as his daddy. Mama Jaymes is doing quite well also."

Aiken's mother, Faye, first broke the news by telling Lynda Loveland of Raleigh, N.C., TV station WRAL about the birth. According to Faye, Foster gave birth at a North Carolina hospital.

Clay's mom also said that baby Parker has "dark hair" and that Clay is "smiling from ear-to-ear" about the news.

In May, it was confirmed that Foster became pregnant via in vitro fertilization.

Though they are not romantically linked, Clay and Jaymes plan to raise the child together. The two met when Aiken competed on Idol, and Foster – who is the sister of legendary music producer David Foster – has produced several of his albums.

geri halliwell's disneyland birthday



Some celebrities rent out massive nightclubs, while others host elaborate parties on luxury yachts.  But for Geri Halliwell's 36th birthday yesterday (August 6), it was all about Disneyland.

The Spice Girl and her adorable daughter Bluebell Madonna were spotted having a marvelous time at the theme park, with Geri sporting a “Happy Birthday from Disney” pin as they rode the carousel.

And it seems that Miss Halliwell has been doing a lot to get in touch with her inner child as of late.  After authoring a children’s book about the character Ugenia Lavender, she now says that she wants to write a movie script.

The “Wannabe” songstress recently told press, “I’m going to write a script next. I do have an idea - I’m always getting these mad ideas.”

Ed Westwick Is Chinatown Crazy



Ed Westwick spends the day on the set of Gossip Girl in Chinatown, New York City on Thursday.

The Gossip Girl star wore a goofy NY t-shirt before he started shooting his scenes, and then changed into a snazzy purple shirt later on.

While there had been rumors flying about a real-life relationship between Ed and co-star Chace Crawford, there seems to be no truth to them.

“You know what? Ed and I laugh about it,” Chace said in an interview with The Independent.

“It’s kind of funny. But it’s like, you know, I guess some people assume there’s a seed of truth to it. People think where there’s smoke, there’s fire. People think that, but they don’t realize that, er, it’s obviously, er, it’s just so amazing the way something can be… just a complete fabrication, yet it gets twisted.”

Matthew McConaughey to plant placenta in orchard

Matthew McConaughey to plant placenta in orchard

36 minutes ago

Matthew McConaughey says the birth of his son will help bring a little joy to others in the world someday. The actor kept the placenta from the July birth of his son and plans to plant it in an orchard, he tells CNN's "House Call with Dr. Sanjay Gupta" in interview scheduled to air in two parts Aug. 9 and Aug 16.

McConaughey says he hopes it will fertilize the land, a ritual long followed in several cultures.

"It's going to be in the orchards and it's going to bear some wonderful fruit," he says, according to an interview transcript. "When I was in Australia, they had a placenta tree that was on the river ... and all the placentas of all that tribe, all that clan, whatever aboriginal tribe that was, all the placentas went under that one tree and it was this huge behemoth of just health and strength.

"This tree was just growing taller and stronger above the rest of Mother Nature around it. It was gorgeous."

McConaughey also says he and his girlfriend Camila Alves have enjoyed integrating their new baby, Levi Alves McConaughey, into their lives. Already they've started introducing him to the "sights and the sounds" of the world — including a John Mellencamp concert.

"You're never told in our house, 'Shh, Levi is sleeping.' No. Get used to the ambiance. Come with us. That's how I was raised," he says.

Lisa Marie Presley Bares Her Baby Bump



  


Lisa Marie Presley announced she's expecting twins – and now she's baring her baby bump in a new photo spread in the September issue of Marie Claire.

The reason for exposing herself in this spread? Presley says she's firing back against people who, early in her pregnancy, posted unflattering photos of her and just accused her of having a large, unhealthy appetite.

"They want me to be him," she tells the magazine, referring to her father, Elvis Presley. "It's like they can't wait."

Presley claims "the tabloids were going so far as to alter photos. I could never figure out why they went to all that trouble to make me look fat.

"There are at least six other famous women pregnant right now who aren't getting picked on," she says in the interview. "But they're all over me. It's like there is a campaign to demean me."

Says Presley: "You know what I think when I see those fat photos? I am not going to let them control me. I just let it all hang out. You want to look at me? Go ahead and look."

The singer, who is expected to give birth in the fall, has two teenage children, Riley, 19, and Benjamin, 15, with ex Danny Keough. The twins are the first children for Presley and husband Michael Lockwood.

But Presley remains defiant when it comes to the fat-talk. "I am 5' 3," she says. "If I gain five pounds it shows."

"I am trying to grow another human being," she adds. "Besides, I'm 40! I'm lucky to even be able to do this."

Taking stock of her life – and her pregnancy – Presley tells Marie Claire in the issue out Aug. 12 that she's growing emotionally as well.

"We're all going to screw up," Presley says. "The important thing is, do you learn from it and not do it again? Can you make it better in the future? Can you change?

"I am in a happy place now," she says. "But it took a lot to get here. I wasn't always who I am now."

Tony's family hates Jessica...








If Jessica Simpson ever makes a second trip down the aisle with current beau Tony Romo, it’s safe to say the rest of the family won’t be welcoming the buxom blonde with open arms. La Familia Romo went loco when an excited Tony and Jess announced they were pregnant during a family meeting last month.

With her younger sister Ashlee now happily married and expecting her first child with husband Pete Wentz, Jessica, 28, is more determined than ever to drop some crotchfruit with the Dallas Cowboys QB, National Enquirer insiders say.

“Her friends know she’s feverishly trying to conceive.”

The “Come On Over” singer was certain her dream of becoming a mother had come true when she received a false positive on a home pregnancy test.

“There was a huge fight on July 18 at the Romo home. Jessica and Tony thought she was pregnant and announced it to the family,” says a spy. “The news resulted in dead silence.”

And it all went to Hell from there.

“Tony’s dad Ramiro said, ‘You’re not even married. This is crazy! Tony’s mom Joan joined in, demanding, ‘How can you do this to us?’”

“Tony’s dad and a lot of his relatives are very traditional, and they don’t like pregnancy out of wedlock,” the tabloid mole explains. (Maybe The Romos don’t want to take the chance that a grandchild of theirs will inherit Jessica’s “stupid” gene.)

BLIND ITEMS

#1 - This female reality star from a cable program and sexy as hell, at least according to her did a Starbucks dance. No, not like Eva, but more of a hissy fit. See, when most people get the wrong drink order, or if it is not hot, or whatever they ask nicely to have it replaced. Well our reality vixen decided that what she would do is just take her ice coffee and dump it on the counter and say, "here's your tip," and then walk out.

#2 - Hotel in Las Vegas. Our B list actress from a hit network comedy who is usually friendly must have been extremely upset to pull this kind of diva behavior. Checks in to the hotel with her baby, a nanny and about 10 items of luggage. The hotel is packed, but she wants service right then. Gets up to her room. Says it faces the wrong direction, wants a new suite. Finds out there is nothing available for an hour or so. "Well you better find someone who can clean faster because if I don't have a room in the next five minutes, I am going to tell everyone I know, your hotel sucks. I don't care how many Mexicans you have to call, I want a new room. Now."

#3 - Car rental return. Minneapolis of all places. Our B-/C+ list film actor with a more famous brother returns his car. Dents all over the hood. Everywhere. Dirty. Tells the rental person someone did it in his hotel parking garage. Looks like someone was jumping up and down on the hood. Turns out though our actor forgot to change his dirty shoes which seemed to match exactly the foot size and treads on the hood. Idiot. And drunk still.

#4 - Virgin record store on Hollywood Blvd. Former teen A lister and now basically a has been bum, although still fairly young. Walks through the entire store just randomly throwing CD's and DVD's into a basket. Must be 100 of them. Not looking at any, just grabbing them by the handful and throwing them into this basket. Goes to checkout and wants them all for free. The cashier says they don't really do that. Our has been wants a manager. One comes over and our has been says they are for a kids organization he is working with. The manager looks at the pile and knows the has been is lying. Says he just can't help him. Our has been does the don't you know who I am routine, and the manager says he knows exactly who the has been is, but can't do anything about it. The back and forth continues, and then the has been gives up. Before he leaves though he asks the manager for $20.

McFly: 'Rod drew willies on our passports'

McFly have claimed that Rod Stewart defaced their passports with rude drawings.

The boyband said they once shared a private jet with the Scottish rocker after performing a concert in Ireland.

"I met him through a friend and had dinner with him and just said hi and he's a really nice guy," commented Danny. "I was doing a gig in Ireland and he offered us a lift back on the jet."

The guitarist continued: "He said that he needed our passports, he took our passports off us and drew rude things over our heads."

Singer Tom Fletcher added: "We had to get new ones."

McFly perform on Vodafone TBA on August 10 at 1.25pm on T4.

French First Lady Carla Bruni: Musician

Photobucket

At the top of a hilly cobblestone cul-de-sac in Paris' tony 16th arrondissement, a young, shaggy-haired Frenchman stands waving frantically. He is one of Carla Bruni's assistants. ''Dépêchez-vous!'' he calls, urging a journalist to quicken her stride. ''Carla is about to play another song.'' Sure enough, on the other side of the imposing iron gate that separates Bruni's house from the rest of the neighborhood, an informal concert is taking place. Seated on her front steps, looking out into her lush garden, the supermodel-turned-singer-turned-First Lady of France is strumming her guitar to ''J'en connais,'' a track from her 2003 debut album, Quelqu'un m'a dit. Next to her is Taofik Farah, her longtime guitarist and collaborator, and in front of both of them is a BBC camera crew, shooting footage for an upcoming documentary on Bruni. Though they've been filming for hours now, Bruni seems perfectly engaged, tapping her foot and swaying with the music as she sings about all the men she's known. But then, somewhere in the middle of the second refrain, she stumbles over the lyrics. ''I forgot!'' she says, flashing an apologetic smile. ''We haven't done this one in five years!''


The Western world has never had to grapple with the idea of a First Lady artiste — much less a former glamazon who just last year told the press that monogamy bored her to tears. And certainly, no wife of a head of state has ever recorded a song like ''Tu es ma came'' (''You are my dope''), a bluesy number in which the première dame de France, in her sexy, husky purr, compares a lover to ''Afghan heroin'' and ''Colombian white.'' (Just try to imagine Laura Bush crooning that W is as powerful as smack.)

Anyhow....

Sienna Miller and Balthazar Getty enjoyed a very public show of togetherness as they shopped in upmarket boutiques in the exclusive Los Angeles coastal suburb of Malibu this week.

The pair spent an hour buying the actress clothes and as they relaxed with a coffee afterwards, Balthazar planted a loving kiss on her forehead.

It comes a day after the actress lashed out at critics over her romance with the married father-of-four.

Friends close to the star have come out in her defence, claiming her relationship with the oil heir began several months after he had secretly split from his wife Rosetta at the end of last year.

Despite reports Balthazar is desperate to reconcile with his wife, sources are also adamant he and Sienna are still an item.

An insider told the New York Post's gossip column Page Six: 'Sienna and he are in love. They are living together in LA. Everyone knows about her and accepts her.

They had reportedly been seeing each other since May, soon after Sienna split from Rhys Ifans

Jenna Jameson gets naked again

The famous adult film star, 34, appears in a new ad promoting the spaying and neutering of cats and dogs.

She appears in the buff alongside the headline, "Sometimes Too Much Sex Can Be a Bad Thing."

"Until dogs and cats can go on the pill or wear condoms, we need to help them practice safe sex—by spaying and neutering," Jameson says. "Millions of homeless animals are turned in to shelters every year because there simply aren't enough good homes for them all. The answer is easy as ABC: animal birth control, which means get Fido and Fluffy fixed!"

James Franco, shirt stealer talks to fans



James Franco
would like you to know that the T-shirt he wears in his stoner-turned-action flick, "Pineapple Express," is not a stolen concept, as alleged.

Hanging for the film's after-party at Tenjune Tuesday night, Franco told us: "I did keep a copy of the outfit. The T-shirt I wore was designed by the director, David Gordon Green, and it's a shark with a kitten in its mouth, but they're both smiling."

But there's some controversy, because a small Brooklyn T-shirt designer, called WOWCH, says it had the idea first, in 2005, and didn't get any credit for the design in the movie.

"What? That's ridiculous," Franco exclaimed. "We completely created that shirt and that shark. David wanted me to wear a purple Monterey Bay T-shirt with a whale on it. I said I wasn't into the whale shirt, so he came up with his own design, which was the shark."

AUTHOR Frank McCourt has outlined his desire for A-list Hollywood actors Matthew Broderick, Johnny Depp or Cork's Cillian Murphy to play him in the film Teacher Man, his third novel, which is due to hit the big screen in two years' time.

Mr McCourt, who visited Limerick this week and retraced his childhood on the Angela's Ashes tour of the city for the first time, joked:

"To be honest, there's nobody good-looking enough to play me.
"They've talked about everybody like Johnny Depp, but my favourite is Matthew Broderick, who may be too old now. But the other one I like is Cillian Murphy – he would be great. It's at an embryonic stage at the moment, so we'll see. It should be out the year after next," he told the Limerick Leader.

RYAN SEACREST TO TAKE OVER DICK CLARK'S NEW YEARS ROCKIN EVE


Dick Clark is still Mr. New Year's Eve -- but he'll be sharing the title with Ryan Seacrest.

Starting this December, Clark's longtime end-of-year special will be called "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest," ABC and dick clark productions said Friday.

It was also announced that Seacrest will serve as co-host with Clark and as an executive producer on the broadcast for another three years, through the 2010 show ringing in 2011.

The show's name change reflects Seacrest's success in co-hosting "one of America's most time-honored traditions," Orly Adelson, executive producer and president of dick clark productions, said in a statement.

"New Year's Rockin' Eve" will mark its 37th year on December 31 and include the customary countdown to midnight from New York City's Times Square.

Seacrest, host of "American Idol," joined the program in December 2005, signing a deal that would eventually make him the program's host. Clark had a stroke earlier that month but appeared on the '05 show and in following years, his speech affected but enthusiasm intact.

The program was the top-rated New Year's Eve show last year, drawing 29 million viewers at the midnight hour.

shortish interview with Smeyer from Newsweek

This is pre-BD release, I think, but I thought I'd post it on the heels of that other article because it's got some priceless quotes:



"Breaking Dawn," the final book in the mega-successful "Twilight" series, about a sexy vampire named Edward and the girl who loves him, goes on sale Aug. 2. Author Stephenie Meyer talked to Susan Elgin about books, boys and blood:

Edward is so perfect—you've ruined regular men for a lot of teens. Do you feel bad?
Oh, a little bit, I guess. I just wanted to write for myself, a fantasy. And that's what Edward is. But it could be a good thing, too. There's nothing wrong with having high expectations, right?

LOL, she seriously needs to get over herself. And to the haters: if you don't have anything nice to say, come sit right here by me.

lilo and sam ~celebratin~



Lindsay Lohan celebrates gal pal Samantha Ronson’s birthday with a party at a lingerie store in West Hollywood on Thursday.

Outside the party was an ice cream truck where guests could come and get treats. Lindsay came out holding a fake pink ice cream cone which she held up to Samantha.

When Sam, now 31, went to suck on it, Lindsay shot the top off as a joke. Lindsay showed off a diamond ring at the party, and when the couple left the party, they held hands as they walked.
