David Caruso sued

David Caruso aka. Horatio Caine Pictures, Images and Photos

David Caruso reportedly faces a lawsuit after his ex-lover filed legal papers against him.

The CSI: Miami star is being sued by Lisa Marquez over allegations that he did not provide her with financial support.

Marquez claims that she agreed to be a stay-at-home mother in return for Caruso providing for her and their children.

Caruso allegedly agreed to give his ex $1 million after their relationship ended in 2007, but Marquez said that she has not seen any of the money.

According to TMZ, she has filed legal papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court and is suing for fraud, breach of settlement agreement and emotional distress.

Last month, a woman accused of stalking Caruso was deported to Austria.

TBH I'm only posting this for the possiblity of some Ryan Wolfe/Jon Togo pic spams. Get to it! Greg Sanders from LV is also acceptable.

Samantha Ronson already has a new girlfriend



That didn't take long! Word has it Lindsay Lohan's ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson already has moved on to someone new.

According to a spy at the Chateau Marmont (site of that Ronson party from which Lohan was banned last Friday), the hot DJ was "clearly with another woman -- somewhat of a Lindsay look-alike, but with very dark hair," at that event.

"They sure looked very cozy, if you know what I mean," said the hotel source who was at the party.

Another Ronson pal reports a mystery woman named ''Cindy'' -- and matching the description of the Ronson date at the Friday night fete -- was seen coming out of Ronson's Los Angeles home on Sunday.

As for the deeply distraught Lindsay, she's currently being comforted by her mother, Dina Lohan, who suddenly has popped up in Los Angeles after being mostly absent from the LiLo scene in recent months.

"She's back to straighten out Lindsay ... and hopes to get her back into rehab, or at least some kind of counseling," said a former Lohan assistant.

A source told The New York Post Thursday: “Lindsay needs to get psychiatric help. Her friends are really sad for her, but she’s out of control, and now she’s all alone.”

There have been a number of reports Lohan has been seen drinking again, though the actress denies she's fallen off the wagon, even in the face of her relationship collapsing.

Michael Caine reveals the truth about Batman casting rumor



Remember a while back when Michael Caine said Johnny Depp and Philip Seymour Hoffman
would be playing The Riddler and the Penguin in Christopher Nolan’s next Batman movie?

Hoffman himself denied the casting. Depp said it'd " Be a fun gig"

Currently promoting his new film “Is Anybody There?” Caine sat down for a chat with MTV Movies Editor Joshua Horowitz about the Depp/Hoffman rumor chaos.

“I read it in the newspaper and then I got told off,” Caine told MTV News. “It was in the newspaper in Toronto about The Riddler and all that, and I thought, ‘Well, they announced it.’ And then I met this reporter who asked me about it, and the sh– hit the fan.”

In a recent interview with Caine elsewhere seemed to reiterate his prediction that Riddler would appear in the next Batman film, the veteran actor told MTV News that he actually knows very little about Nolan’s plans for the much-anticipated sequel to “The Dark Knight” — and anything reported otherwise has been misinterpreted.

“I don’t have anything,” said Caine. “I still don’t have anything. The only thing I know is [Christopher Nolan] is doing another movie anyway, so it’s not going to be soon.”

The Riddler is an interesting character, but he is one of those that could go either way. It could be a great film, or it could be Schumaker's revenge.

Personally I'd like to see a less know villain as the focus for the movie. A less known villain could be interpreted in unique ways, making a good story.

some guy who was once on power rangers gets death penalty



Ex-Actor Gets Death for Yacht Slayings

SANTA ANA, Calif. (April 10) - A man convicted of murdering an Arizona couple by tying them to an anchor and throwing them overboard from their yacht off Southern California was sentenced to death Friday.

Orange County Superior Court Judge Frank F. Fasel imposed the sentence recommended by the jury that convicted Skylar Deleon, 29, of killing Tom and Jackie Hawks of Prescott, Ariz. DeLeon, who appeared in a "Power Rangers" TV series and starred in commercials, was also convicted in the 2003 killing of Jon Jarvi, an Anaheim man he met on a work furlough program.

"It is the judgment and order of this court you shall suffer the death penalty as to each count," Fasel said, adding that he decided to impose the penalty partly because of the horrific nature of the murders.

Prosecutors said Deleon, of Long Beach, feigned interest in buying the couple's nearly half-million-dollar yacht and threw them overboard during a test cruise out of Newport Harbor in 2004. The Hawkses' bodies were never found.

They said Deleon and his then-wife, Jennifer Henderson, crafted the plan to kill the Hawkses to steal their boat and savings. After the yacht killings, prosecutors said, Deleon and Henderson scrubbed the boat clean with bleach wipes.

"It is difficult to imagine a case where it's more cold-blooded and calculated than this series of murders," prosecutor Matt Murphy said after the sentencing. "I can't imagine a situation that is more deserving of the ultimate punishment."

Defense attorney Gary Pohlson had asked jurors to spare his client's life, arguing that Deleon was abused by a drug-dealing father who left him predisposed to violence. He declined to comment after the sentencing. Deleon's case will automatically go to an appeal.

Henderson was convicted in 2006 of murder and murder for financial gain and was sentenced to two terms of life in prison without parole. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, one of two men accused of helping Deleon in the plot, was also convicted in the murders earlier this year and a jury has recommended the death penalty when he is sentenced in May.

Murder charges against Myron Gardner, the other man, were dismissed when he pleaded guilty last month to accessory after the fact. Alonso Machain, who testified that he and Kennedy were on the boat with Deleon on the day of the killings, also faced murder charges.

Ryan Hawks, Tom Hawks's son, said he hoped that Deleon's two children would never know what their father did or that he used his young daughter to help win the trust of the Arizona couple.

"No one wants to know they were used as decoys or fakes to murder my parents," Hawks said after the sentencing.

Tara Reid returning to American Pie



Tara Reid's going back to where it all started for her... East Great Falls High.

The party queen is reprising her role of Vicki Lathum, from the first two films, for "American Pie : Book of Love", the latest in the sex and pastries series.

Though she'd had small roles in the likes of "Urban Legend" (1998) and "Cruel Intentions" (1999), it was the role of the curious, nervous Vicki in Paul Weitz's $200 million dollar hit that really put Reid on the map. She reprised the role, albeit briefly, for the 2001 sequel.

"American Pie : Book of Love", directed by John Putch (TVs "Scrubs") and penned by David H.Steinberg ("American Pie 2"), tells of a group of kids that discover the sex-bible that so prominently featured in the original film (and, in fact, was used by Kevin, played by Thomas Ian Nicholas, on Vicki, his then-girlfriend). It may or may not end up with someone losing their cherry.

Reid joins Bug Hall ("Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves"), Kevin M.Horton ("Big Game"), and another original "Pie" star, Eugene Levy, for the new pic. Wayne Newton and Sherman 'The Jefferson's' Helmsley also appear.

Surgeon who operated on Kanye's mother gives up license



The plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West’s mother Dr. Donda West before she died has given up his medical license in California.

Dr. Jan Adams performed a number of procedures on Dr. West in 2007, and she died soon after her operation.

Formal charges against Adams were filed by the Medical Board after he was charged with DUI related criminal convictions. According to Extra, Barb Johnston, the Board's executive director said that "The mission of the Medical Board is public protection, and this action reflects the Board's ongoing commitment to that mission."

Dr. Adams was a well-known surgeon prior to his DUIs and the death of Dr. West. He appeared on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ and the Discovery Channel's ’Plastic Surgery: Before and After’.

Britney might be going to court...



Britney Spears
will be appearing in a Los Angeles arena and, if a certain lawyer has it his way, an L.A. County courtroom.

Jon Eardley, Esq., the lawyer who claims Britney hired him to torpedo her conservatorship, has just filed legal papers demanding that Brit appear at a trial in which Eardley has been accused of harassing Britney and her family.

In his legal papers, Eardley notes that Britney will be performing at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on April 16 and 17. He says if she's well enough to perform, she's well enough to testify on two points -- did she authorize Eardley to take legal action on her behalf and did Eardley really cause her "substantial emotional distress."

The judge will have to decide if Britney is competent enough to testify and if it's fair to drag her into court. It would certainly be entertaining.

Liam Neeson is continuing to seek solace in his work.

The Irish actor has signed on for his first role since the death of wife Natasha Richardson three weeks ago, joining longtime pal Ralph Fiennes in a remake of "Clash of the Titans."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the duo will play warring deities in the epic F/X-heavy flick, with Neeson taking on the role of Zeus, the ill-tempered king of the Greek gods, while Fiennes will play underworld ruler, and would-be Olympian usurper, Hades.

Tracey Ullman takes on LA, State of the Union returns on Sunday!



We were 30 minutes late to talk to Tracey Ullman, who was back in England for a spell. She didn't mind the tardiness a bit. The second season of "Tracey Ullman's State of the Union" returns to Showtime on Sunday.

What's big in England now?

The recession is pretty big. There's an abandoned house next door -- we were evicting squatters this morning. I live opposite a house: the Indian steel magnate [Lakshmi] Mittal. His house cost like 50 million pounds at the time and opposite there's a house he's supposed to be taking for his staff or, I don't know, it's a rundown house. And they stopped flipping it or anything. Oh, it's boring. Who'd have thought -- Mayfair! I've got hookers 'round the back. Mayfair's notorious for hookers. One hundred feet from my house there's a fully equipped dominatrix chamber. That's handy to know, isn't it? My neighbor, I told him, "God, blimey, I should tell my MP about it." He said go on in, he's probably in there. Mayfair. Spies and hookers! It's always been the same here. Yeah, you can sense everyone's in a bit of a panic. Suddenly everyone's embarrassed of this consumerism. The EU are hunkering down, and Eastern Europe's going broke. And the same old stuff in America. "The Apprentice" looks a bit tragic now. "Who will get the top job?" Driving limos with Champagne. It's stupid!

And now that you're an American, does London look foreign to you?

It's lovely to be a part of both countries. I just notice the differences lessen over the years. When I first lived in L.A., my God, I was miles away from London, another planet. Silver boots and Farrah Fawcett hair! The food was like Hilton Hotel room service. Iceburg lettuce! You know, you'd get the Observer newspaper from London once a week at a stand in Sherman Oaks. And, "You're so cute, your accent!" Now it's a cosmopolitan place. I just feel I have a country home 10 hours out of LAX -- just keep getting all the air miles. I love Virgin, I like those girls. You know, those girls, they go to L.A. and go to the pool for three days and they'll all have skin cancer by the time they're 42 and they say, "Champagne, orange juice, combination of both?" . . . I'm on a bit of a ramble, I'm jet-lagged. But there's a guy you see in the market behind my house and he takes photographs of the hookers. He takes all their pictures. He should do a book, all these girls over the years.

Jared Leto Gives More Than 30 Seconds to Rescued Kids



Jared Leto wants kids in need to have more than a so-called life.

The actor-musician and his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, on Friday opened up their recording session in the Hollywood Hills to boys and girls who were rescued from prostitution by the Los Angeles-based nonprofit Children of the Night.

COTN, which counts Hugh Hefner and the Johnny Carson Foundation among its biggest contributors, has aided more than 10,000 youngsters between the ages of 11 and 17 since its founding 30 years ago by Dr. Lois Lee.

Leto recently visited the 24-bed facility/school/counseling center and, after sitting down with some of the residents, was compelled to give back.

"After meeting all of the wonderful people at COTN and hearing about their enthusiasm for art and music, I invited them to join us in the studio for a day while we make our next record," Leto said in a statement to E! News this week. "We are looking forward to sharing this creative time with them on Friday, April 10th."

30 Seconds to Mars is currently at work on its third album. Next up for Leto on the big screen is the sci-fi drama Mr. Nobody.

Bollywood's Hottest Bikini Bodies



Every time an actress dons a bikini it makes headlines. Pipe-down, there were several yester-year actors who carried off the bikini with much sex appeal.

First up was Nutan who slipped into a swimsuit for Dilli Ka Thug in 1958. This was followed by Saira Banu in April Fool and Vyjayanthimala in Sangam. Probably the biggest proponents of the two-piece from back then are Sharmila Tagore, Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi and Dimple Kapadia.

But somewhere down the line, the way they paved got blocked by prudes. But now, we have the new ladies of Tinseltown clearing out the rubble of boring wardrobes and bringing back sexy beach wear on to the screen. Welcome to the age of the bikini!

15 Brilliant Pop Culture Bunnies

The Easter Bunny and his brethren have long been a part of our pop-cultural landscape. In film, TV, and literature, the irresistible, cotton-tailed rodents have a long history of imparting valuable life lessons to both young and old alike — beyond being good to get candy. From that silly cereal rabbit's lesson (''Trix are for kids!'') to the more ominous warnings of Donnie Darko's looming sidekick, Frank, these long-eared lagomorphs come with a tale to tell. When you think about it, everything we really need to know we learned from rabbits.

Soo some of you are wondering how my experience at Liza Minnelli's concert in Vancouver was... It was UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE. Honestly, I was blown away. I was by far the youngest one there, but I don't care, I can't even express how brilliant she sounded, and I am not being biased. I had such high expectations and she surpassed them ten fold. Everything I could've hoped for and so much more. Not only did she sing wonderfully, but she was dancing and being deliciously witty and everything that is Liza Minnelli. She is so beautiful in person, flawless hair, skin, everything and looks ridiculously like Judy Garland. She'd say something or look a certain way that was just pure Judy. Her eyes can be seen from a mile away, and she is just exactly how she looks in pictures. She even made Britney Spears joke:

-You guys can smoke in here. I really don't mind.
[roars of laughter and applause]
-I'm just kidding, she's a swell kid.. just a lot smaller than I am.

I didn't get to meet her (next time because there WILL be a next time -though I got to meet three of her band members, and I spoke to her choreographer of 40 years), but I yelled out "I love you Liza," and she said "Thank you!" and then I got to shake her beautiful hand so basically we are bff's now. I was so blown away all I could say is "Thank you so much" when I shook her hand, like the ass that I am. I am so sad that her second show (that I had 2nd row tickets to) got canceled, I would kill to see that show again.

Moral of the story, you should all become Liza Minnelli fans because she makes the world a better place.

P.S. No camera were allowed, otherwise I would've taken so many fucking pictures :'( But she wore the same beautiful glittery outfit that is in the first picture.

Woody Harrelson takes on zombie paparazzo



Woody Harrelson claims he mistook photographer for zombie

Woody Harrelson defended his clash with a photographer at a New York airport Wednesday night as a case of mistaken identity -- he says he mistook the cameraman for a zombie.

The TMZ photographer filed a complaint with police claiming the actor damaged his camera and pushed him in the face at La Guardia Airport, according to an airport spokesman.

"We're looking into this allegation and if it's warranted, we'll turn it over to the proper authorities," said Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman Ron Marsico.

The photographer, who was not identified, captured the encounter on a small camera after his larger one was broken.

Harrelson, who is being sued by another TMZ photographer for an alleged assault in 2006, did not deny his involvement.

"I wrapped a movie called 'Zombieland,' in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character," Harrelson said in a statement issued Friday by his publicist.

"With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie," he said.

Sienna Miller's new movie panned by critics

dedicated to sekhmet2 



Sienna Miller's latest film has been blasted by critics - with one reviewer claiming the most memorable thing about the movie is the actress' “moustache”.

The British beauty stars alongside Peter Sarsgaard in The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, which was released in U.S. cinemas earlier this week .

But her performance has not gone done well in the States.

New York Post critic Lou Lumenick writes, “You know a movie’s got problems when the most memorable thing about it is Sienna’s moustache.”

And the Boston Globe adds, “Almost nothing works in this movie."

Other reviewers have also criticised Miller's American accent. A reviewer for the New York Times says, "Just what accent Ms Miller is attempting is hard to guess."

LET’S say you are an “American Idol” contestant with a criminal history. Let’s say you claimed to have had an affair with Paula Abdul. Let’s imagine that you are found to have posed for topless photos or been charged with identity theft.

These are not hypothetical scandals. Each has occurred during the eight-season run of the top-rated show. And each has duly been processed out of consciousness at a speed accorded most show business scandals — forgotten in the nanosecond it takes us to move on from the latest reality TV distraction and back to our ordinary lives.

Let’s imagine, then, that among the assorted warblers and strummers and leather-lunged divas that have made up the renewable cast of hopefuls on the country’s No. 1 television show, you appear not as some talented hopeful with a shady backstory but as a theatrical creation with a message to sell beyond the usual will to prevail. You are swivel hipped and pillow lipped. You have an outsize talent and a fondness for Cher. You have blond hair dyed black and styled in an asymmetrical shag.

Why Joel Madden loves Nicole Richie

While in the studio recording Good Charlotte's upcoming album, Bio Cardiology, Joel Madden uses Twitter as an outlet, often leaving messages for his pregnant girlfriend Nicole Richie.

Thursday night, Madden posted a link to his TwitPic account that said, "This is why I love her folks."

So, what could it be? Her charitable spirit? The homemade baby food she makes for their 1-year-old daughter Harlow? Her fashionable tendencies?

Well, sort of! Unearthing a photo of Richie as a young girl, Madden quips of her long curly hair and shaggy bangs, "Is it not Ron Perlman circa Beauty and the Beast??" Madden momentarily followed up with photographic evidence of the resemblance.

So, was Richie mad that Madden heckled her in front of his 40,000 Twitter followers?

Not at all. Richie responded on Twitter Thursday, "Everyone has an awkward phase. Let me have something! Can you believe my mom let me have curly bangs?"

Friday morning they were still happily in love, Madden confirmed when he tweeted, "So Last night I ended up playing poker till 3 a.m. Thank God for my awesome girlfriend who let me sleep in today."

Widower Jack plans themed restaurant

Grieving Jack Tweed wants to open a highclass restaurant and name it in Jade Goody's honour.

It will serve "international cuisine" and the menu will reflect Jade's taste in food.

Widower Jack, 21, and best pal Mark Wright want the restaurant to be in Essex and are in talks with various TV channels to film their progress.

Mark's cousin Elliott Wright, who owns eight restaurants on Spain's Costa del Sol, has also been drafted in to help.

A close friend of Jack's said yesterday: "Jack has got a great entrepreneurial spirit.

"They have ruled out London. They want a highclass, trendy place in Essex.

They haven't decided on the name but Jack wants it to be something to do with Jade." Jack is under a 7pm-7am curfew after being released early from jail. He was serving 18 months for hitting a teenager with a golf club but may return to prison next week when he is sentenced for assaulting a cab driver..

ITV want One Show host Christine Bleakley to join This Morning



The BBC is battling to stop One Show host Christine Bleakley defecting to ITV.

The rival channel have lined up a six-figure deal to entice Christine, 29, to join This Morning.

It was in place just days after Fern Britton announced she was quitting following a rift with her co-presenter Phillip Schofield.

Belfast-born Christine has proved hugely popular hosting BBC1’s early evening magazine show with Adrian Chiles.

One TV insider said: “She can think on her feet and works well with Chiles, even though he’s a bit of a handful and she admitted to not liking him at first.

“She’s a great foil for an older male co-host because she’s pretty but smart, too.

“Christine also has warmth which makes other women like her – which is very important for a show like This Morning.”

But the BBC aren’t going to let Christine go without a fight. The source added: “Their argument is why would she go and do a daytime show when she is already on primetime BBC1?”

One reason could be the salary. Christine earns £100,000 a year while Fern was on £700,000.

ITV could double her salary and still make a huge saving.

If their audacious poaching bid fails, ITV will have to look at others on their “wish list”, including Natasha Kaplinsky, Kate Garraway and Fiona Phillips.

But the source added: “Christine is the number one choice.”

Top 10 Seth Rogen Moments

10. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Ya-Ya Pants

We start this list with a quiet, sad moment that any married man can surely identify with. Rogen only had a supporting role in the Owen Wilson/Kate Hudson/Matt Dillon opus You, Me and Dupree, but it was a memorable one -- the henpecked shell of a man that is Rogen's character is a too familiar cipher for any guy who has had to come to terms with the fact that he is a grown man and yet he somehow has a curfew as if he was 15 again.

"My hour's up," says Rogen after a brief reprieve from domesticity. "Got to go meet my wife and watch Sisterhood of the Traveling Ya-Ya Pants, I don't know. How late do you get to stay out? I used to have midnight. Do you get midnight? Because I was late once and…"

Wait… Is that funny or just sad?

Nancy Overton, Singer for the Chordettes, Is Dead at 83


The Chordettes: Jinny Osborn, Nancy Overton, Lynn Evans and Carol Buschmann

Nancy Overton, who joined the pop group the Chordettes in 1958 and melded her mellifluous low tones into their barbershop-quartet-like harmonies on some of their later hits, died on Sunday in Blairstown, N.J. She was 83 and lived in Hackettstown, N.J.

The cause was esophageal cancer, her son Rick said.

Ms. Overton sang on the original recordings of two Chordettes hits: “Zorro,” a vocal version of the theme from the hit television show that climbed to No. 17 on the charts in 1958, and “Never on Sunday,” the title song of the movie starring Melina Mercouri, which made it to No. 13 in 1961.

Pretty sure there aren't many 50's girl-group fans on ONTD, but the Chordettes are an amazing group: Lollipop, Never on a Sunday, Eddie My Love, Mr. Sandman ... amazing songs. They have a ton more, you should check them out!

PETA Praise Michael Jackson for Not Using Live Animals at Concerts, Continue to Slaughter Animals



Michael Jackson has got the thumbs up from animal rights campaigners, for not using exotic creatures when he makes his comeback tour in the summer.

In March it was reported that Jacko had wanted to bring out a range of animals like an elephant, birds, monkeys and snakes, when he returns to the stage at the O2 Arena in London this July.

Organisers have now announced that no live animals will be featured in the show, which has pleased campaign group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

"Wild animals do not belong in noisy arenas surrounded by screaming fans and loud music." PETA Europe Director Robbie LeBlanc says in a statement.

"We are thrilled that Michael won't compound his past mistakes by using animals in his final U.K. shows. Bubbles wouldn't have approved."

So apparently BritBrit and KFed aren't banging, y'all.



So my best friend works at a salon in Santana Row (the Bay Area's answer to Rodeo Drive) and I was getting my hair trimmed by her this morning, when in walks Britney and her assistant. The assistant who I couldn't name to save my life had an appointment with one of the master stylists and Britney stayed with her. The stylist cutting the assistant's hair asked Britney point blank halfway through the cut if it was true that Kevin was buttering her muffin on tour; both Britney and her assistant laughed so hard that they had to stop cutting the assistant's hair for about two minutes, when Britney finally answered, "Never again in my life."

Anyway, Britney was really nice and seemingly sane, and the assistant had horrible hair.

oh yeah, there's gonna be a 5th



Back in March, Paul Walker revealed that a fifth "Fast & Furious" film was in the works. "It's beyond rumors at this point," he said. "I've spoken to executives at Universal and they are pretty serious about it. They are developing it. They know where they want it to take place. They want it to take place in Europe."

Now that the fourth installment broke several records at the box office, Walker felt the need to reveal a few more details about the next movie. "[Fourth film] was supposed to be it. There wasn’t supposed to be the open-ended closing like there was," he told the Valentine in the Morning radio show. "When I first read the screenplay, I was like, 'Man, look what they're doing.' But without question, with the way things opened up, Vin and I will be coming back, we're making a fifth one, and we're going to Brazil, that's it."

Ok, so it's not quite Europe, but we now know that the fifth film will be set in Brazil and that both Vin Diesel and Walker will be back. Walker previously mentioned that "2 Fast 2 Furious" star Tyrese Gibson will likely join the new crew, since both he and director Justin Lin made a solid effort to get Gibson on board for the fourth installment.

at least Drift and the fourth film gave us this eye candy:


But then again, I don't care what anyone says - even my inner elitist movie goer - if they did a box set for Furious I'd buy it and then hide it in the depths of my closest so no one could find it but me

Friend: Lindsay and Sam Are Still Talking



A week after Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson's dramatic split, a friend of Lohan's says the star is "heartbroken."

"Sam and Lindsay are speaking," the source tells PEOPLE. "But Sam has begged Lindsay to get help."

"Lindsay, despite appearances, is insecure and has relied on Samantha and their relationship to build her up," explains the pal. "Lindsay barely sleeps, which explains a lot of her behavior. She's exhausted. She can't even sit down for a minute without pacing around the room. It's really sad."


Since Ronson broke up with her last week in Los Angeles, Lohan has kept busy: Thursday night, she was spotted at the Chateau Marmont before meeting up with friends at Bar Delux, where a fellow club-goer reported, "her mood was frantic. She looked worn out, and really skinny." A source also tells PEOPLE that "Lindsay continued partying after Delux that night." Friday night Lohan laid low while Ronson deejayed a party in San Francisco.

Lohan's tendencies for erratic behavior have sparked concern among Ronson's friends that Lohan might act out, but her friend says that she is not the only one to blame for the former couple's intense dynamic.

"While Sam doesn’t want to deal with the drama, in a sick way she is obsessed with this part of Lindsay's behavior," the friend says. "It's like she doesn't want it, but when Lindsay stops writing, she begins to miss it."

Despite her difficult week, Lohan has discovered a silver lining in the support she's received from her younger sister Ali. "Lindsay never realized until this happened how important her sister was to her," the friend says.

"Through all of this, her sister has been there for her and coaching her through it. Lindsay doesn't even know what she would have done without her."

And Twilight Promotion in the UK Hits A New Low

To those of you who were shocked when HMV UK announced it would sell "autobitten" Twilight DVDs, allow me to introduce you to Twilight Eye-verts!


 
When you live in Los Angeles, home to ads that are famously the size of a small skyscraper, a very, very tiny ad shouldn't catch the eye. And catch the eye we do mean, too: Notcot reports that E1 Entertainment in Britain has created a contact lens promoting the release of "Twilight" on DVD & Blu-Ray in the United Kingdom. Models are donning the wee, golden-hued circles and strutting about, making eye contact with potential Edward-and-Bella fans. Creepy. In the best sense.

Why are we transfixed by these "eye-verts"? Well, maybe we've been living under a rock, but we've yet to see a contact lens with writing. We've seen the Marilyn Mansons, the tiger eyes, the whited-out ghosty looks, which are all fairly striking, but something about words on an eye feels deeply unsettling. And that works here, because "Twilight" is a movie about vampires (just in case you too have been living under a rock, and if so, welcome to the neighborhood!).

Vampires with golden eyes, we might add. And we're wondering what is next on the advertising frontier. Probably holograms promoting a new movie containing holograms. Yes, definitely holograms will be up next. Talking holograms.

#1 DILF David Beckham reunites with sons



He may be one of the most famous footballers in the world - but to his three adoring sons David Beckham is just plain Daddy.

And in an emotional reunion this week they were all over him, wrestling him to the ground and clambering on his back and head like a group of playful lion cubs.

The heart-warming scenes came as Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, six, and four-yearold Cruz, flew to Italy - where Becks is playing for AC Milan - after a 6,000-mile trip from the family's home in LA.

They have been forced to spend long spells apart because of his footie commitments, but the youngsters quickly made up for lost time with some laddish rough and tumble as the England hero was smothered in hugs and kisses.

Smiling mum Victoria, 34, stayed in the background as the squealing trio had a whale of a time mucking around with their dad at his club's training ground.

An onlooker said: "It was fantastic to see them having so much fun. The boys were obviously thrilled to be reunited with their daddy. They must miss him so much.

But once they were back together, they didn't seem to have a care in the world."

David, 33, has often spoken of the joys of fatherhood, describing it as the best thing that ever happened to him. He said: "Being a dad is more important than football. It's incredible."

Yesterday, Victoria and the boys flew in to Heathrow before heading back to California, where they return to school next week. And it may be several more months before they see their dad, whose loan period at Milan runs until July.

Nikki Reed and RPattz Together?


Predictable, fans say, are the rumors swirling the net and blogosphere about Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon stars Robert Pattinson and Nikki Reed.

We've seen before the onslaught of dating rumors circling Rob ever since he took the post as Edward Cullen in Stephenie Meyer's book to film translation of Twilight, ranging from co-star Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan, in Twilight) to the one and only celebreality socialite Paris Hilton (see here).

Most recently abandoned were rumors that Robert Pattinson was linked to American beauty Natalie Portman, star of such films as Anywhere but Here and Where the Heart Is.

Now, the lips of many are teeming with curiosity as to the truth of the newest Twilight love match allegations of Rob and Nikki Reed (who plays Rosalie Hale in the film(s)). The story began, says Associated Content, when

Reports from gossip websites . . . spread that Reed and Pattinson ha[d] been secretly dating on and off the Twilight: New Moon set. Lainey Gossip reported that Reed and Pattinson were together through much of last weekend, and hung out together after the Juno Awards. The site's sources further allege[d] that she stayed with Pattinson overnight this past Sunday, and was late in returning to Los Angeles the next morning.

Though neither of the stars' representatives have spoken publicly on the issue, sometimes silence speaks volumes enough. While Nikki and Rob may have been seen together (shocker) while they are both together in Vancouver shooting a film, it is not surprising. It is no secret that during the filming of 2008's hit blockbuster Twilight, the cast grew exceptionally close to one another, and that this is sure to repeat itself once and again as they share the screen for this year's The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and next summer's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

So, if the rumors are just that (rumors only), it begs the question: is this a media stunt? If so, from which camp (Rob's or Nikki's)? Or better yet, was it just a clever fabrication by Lainey?

Twilight got their Aro



Actor Michael Sheen, who played high-profile roles in The Queen and Frost/Nixon, is set to take on the role of Aro in New Moon, with an estimated £5million payday. This according to the Daily Mail, which says–

Sheen, 40, who made his name with uncannily realistic portrayals of well-known figures in Oscar-winning films The Queen, Frost/Nixon and The Damned United, will get his biggest pay cheque yet, a reported £5million, to star in New Moon.

In New Moon, Sheen will play Aro, the leader of an Italian vampire clan called the Volturi.

Director Chris Weitz confirmed Sheen’s casting to The Mail on Sunday and said he had ‘aggressively’ pursued the actor.

‘Michael’s role is so important because he’s the head of all vampires,’ he said. ‘Aro is, on the surface, a very gracious and friendly vampire, but beneath that he is a tremendous threat.’

At least they'll have one real actor.

Franz Ferdinand snub US ad offer



Franz Ferdinand
have admitted they snubbed an offer to allow a US fast food chain to use one of their songs.

Frontman Alex Kapranos said a large Mexican chain wanted to use the song 'Bite Hard' from their current album 'Tonight: Franz Ferdinand', for an advertising campaign.

But the band turned down the offer because they didn't feel comfortable signing it over.

"They asked if they could use our song 'Bite Hard and I think the idea was people were going to be biting into their chili enchilada while the song was in the background." Kapranos told Absolute Radio.

"It would be like going to McDonald's or something like that. It just didn't seem right."

TNT Cancels 'Trust Me'



“Trust Me,” a comedy-drama about a make-believe advertising agency in Chicago, was canceled by TNT on Friday after a single season. It “achieved creative success,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and TCM in Atlanta. “It just didn’t find an audience.” According to ratings data from TNT, a Time Warner cable channel, “Trust Me” drew only about 1.4 million viewers for each episode during its 13-episode season, which started in January and ended on Tuesday. The series featured Eric McCormack and Tom Cavanagh as creative executives at the imaginary agency. “People sometimes lament there’s so much drama built around doctors and lawyers and police,” Mr. Wright said, but it may be that the world of advertising is “not as accessible a subject as other subjects on television.” The acclaimed drama about advertising on AMC, “Mad Men,” also draws a smaller audience than procedural dramas. Turner Entertainment, which oversees TNT, integrated real products into the scripts of “Trust Me” as part of advertising sales packages; the characters at the agency, Rothman Greene & Mohr, worked on campaigns for brands including Dove.

Paris Hilton's Reality Show Budget Slashed



Socialite Paris Hilton is the symbol of extravagant wealth and wretched excess, but even the clueless celeb has been affected by the economic crisis. Hilton hasn't been forced to sell any of the luxury vehicles in her fleet, and she hasn't put any of her mansions on the market, but her reality TV show has been forced to downsize.

"Here's a new economic indicator: the diminishing level of glamour on Paris Hilton's reality TV show.

Contestants in season two of "Paris Hilton's My New BFF" are living in a mansion that costs half as much as the home the show rented last season. Trips to New York and Tokyo are out this year, as the show's production budget has been cut 10 percent." The Associated Press

If the economy continues its downward trend season three of Paris Hilton's My New BFF the contestants will be living in a housing project in Compton, California. MTV which plans to air the Hilton reality show this summer, may opt to go with Perez Hilton instead of Paris Hilton for any additional seasons. I'm sure they can get save a lot of money by going with Perez instead of Paris.

The economy must really be in the dumpster if even reality shows are cutting costs. Reality shows are relatively cheap to produce because producers don't have to hire actors or writers. It's not a good sign when even reality shows feel compelled to cut costs.

The 52-year-old vixen and her live-in lover, chef Alan Wyse, 29, are definitely not on the same page when it comes to cooking up a family.

"Alan is complaining that his biological clock is ticking. He's having paternal pangs and wants a baby," a source close to Kim tells Star.

"When he suggested they sign up with an adoption agency, Kim said, 'No way!'" Kim is past her mothering years and completely satisfied with their life as is, says the source. "But for Alan, it's the natural progression of things to want to build a family with the woman he loves. It's not going to happen, though. Kim made it clear from day one that babies were never going to be on her agenda."

Now, with studios owning cable networks, they think they can slip a sure-to-be-disastrous movie like Lindsay's Lohan's upcoming debacle "Labor Pains" right past us, putting it on ABC Family rather than at the local cineplex.
