Sarah Harding's boyfriend has announced that he is planning to marry the Girls Aloud star in the near future. DJ Tom Crane confirmed that he started hunting for wedding rings on a recent holiday in Dubai and is eagerly anticipating a "traditional" ceremony. "I know the kind of ring Sarah wants, we've looked when we've been on holiday," Crane told The People. "When we went to Dubai we were looking at quite a lot of rings there.

"She likes a square diamond with maybe small diamonds on the band. Sarah's got really good taste, she doesn't want anything that's too much and garish. She likes subtle." On possible locations for the ceremony, he added: "I'm very romantic. I want something traditional - an old fashioned English wedding. I want the top and tails, more subtle than a celebrity wedding. I'd like to get married in a country church in the middle of nowhere." News that the couple were making wedding plans first emerged in the media last month, ending rumours of an impending split.

Dennis Rodman is going to rehab - the outpatient kind

After getting the boot on The Celebrity Apprentice, it looks like Dennis Rodman's next venture will be a familiar one: rehab.

The former NBA star, who has battled addiction for years, has agreed to enter an outpatient program where he'll regularly see a counselor.

While it is a step in the right direction, last week family and friends of Rodman, including his former Los Angeles Lakers coach, Phil Jackson, unsuccessfully reached out to the star, who refused to admit himself to an inpatient facility.

"Yes, they tried an intervention, but unfortunately Dennis refused to go," Rodman's rep tells E! News. "We all know how amazing he is when sober and we hope he gets there soon."

One reason for his refusal to go into treatment? Rodman's desire to attend The Celebrity Apprentice reunion show.
Says his rep, "He will be in New York City for the show's finale next Sunday."


The time is Attention Whore O'Clock

Not only does Katy Perry sing about kissing girls -- she's good at it too, says Lady Sovereign, the British rapper.

Sov got chummy -- and then some -- with Perry recently at a New York City party. Perez Hilton Fatass Methface first posted that the duo reportedly spent time in a bathroom stall, but a source close to Sov confirms to that actual galpal lip-locking went down. "[Lady Sov] said Katy was a good kisser," our source relates.

But Katy might be done with her experimental bathroom stall makeout sessions for a while: News surfaced over the weekend that she's mended fences with her ex, Gym Class Heroes singer Travis McCoy.

Not to worry, Sov. Lindsay Lohan is single these days -- and we all know she has a thing for Brits.


RAPPER Lady Sovereign has broken her silence on her reputed passionate clinch with Katy Perry.

Sov said: "I've seen parts of Katy Perry I shouldn't have seen. At one of her afterparties she put her pyjamas on and she wasn't wearing anything underneath.

"It was like a long T-shirt. The party was out of control. Just a thing in her hotel room but yeah, I saw something I shouldn't have seen."

Eclipse Director David Slade on Twilight - “Just Shoot Me”

When Peter compiled his epic and useful list of directors, actors and screenwriters plugged into Twitter, one of those included was Hard Candyman David Slade. Today, however, it seems like Slade’s Twitter account has been deleted, which is a crying shame. Besides the loss of an interesting tweeter, another of the reasons this is unfortunate is that the deletion covers Slade’s tracks a little and hides a rather amusing little attack he launched on the Twilight franchise.

That being the very same Twilight franchise Slade has subsequently signed up to, and for which he will be directing the third installment, Eclipse. Oops.

So, the original Tweet might be gone but after the break we have audio of Slade ripping into Twilight and, if nothing else, its quite funny stuff… and I can’t help wondering what Summit Entertainment, the Twilight cast and Stephenie Meyer think about it?

This clip comes from the BDK movie show on WJFK in Washington DC. The show goes out every Friday night from 7p to 10pm EST and has featured me as a guest now a couple of times, and I’ll be back this Friday the 8th May too. Slade came up in conversation during last night’s show and the show’s host, Kevin McCarthy promised to dig up this gem from their archives. With Kevin’s blessing we present the clip here for you now:

And for those of you who can’t listen at the moment, here’s my best transcript:

…and so yesterday we were trying to find a movie to see and we’d seen all the good ones, you know, and there was nothing really coming out this weekend that we really fancied at all and having directed a vampire film and really gone for something completely different to the kind of romantic, you know, repressed hormone teen vampire movie we really weren’t interested in seeing Twilight but a lot of people said lets go so I wrote -

“Twilight drunk? No, not even drunk. Twilight on acid? No, not even on acid? Twilight at gun point? Just shoot me.”

[That’s like] a poem in a way [...] at this point excites me even though people think I’m a really violent and unpleasant person I actually do have this romantic violent side to me. Maybe I should have seen Twilight.

Blind Items! Tween Lez, High Rapper, and Drunk Diva!

Sometimes people play their roles correctly. Today's blind items: a tween star who talks to other girls and is therefore a gay, a weed-smoking rapper(!) and a drunk diva actress and her crackhead friends.

1. "This multi-talented tween star is frequently seen with cute boy stars, most of her own generation. One evening last week, however, she puzzled onlookers by ignoring every boy in the room in favor of talking, drinking, and dancing only with other girls. Is our little sweetheart actually gay? According to some of the girls in attendance, she is "curious" and "exploring her options". Is she a Pink in the making? Maybe."

2. "Which D-list rapper got in a hemp, er, heap, of trouble with event sponsors when he lit up a joint at their bash? They couldn't kick him out because he was the "big" celebrity name of the night, but they didn't end up paying him."

3. "This B list television actress on a very hit network drama has A list name recognition. She was paid to be at an event for two consecutive weekends for teens and was expected to be a good example for those in attendance. Strict? Yeah, but she was getting paid big bucks and could have skipped it if she didn't want to follow the rules. She chain-smoked her way through the thing, refusing to do most of the stuff she was being paid to do. (this included an argument over her check which she opened up and argued through most of a show she was in the audience for. Apparently she thought she was being paid less than what had been agreed on.)Don't ask me why the check didn't go straight to her agent, but I wonder if she did this on her own without coughing up the 10%.

She didn't want to do opening remarks for a C list male R&B singer with one huge monster hit, and not much else because she thought his people were "ogling her too much" She lied about her age and drank two bottles of wine the first night and ended up drunk off her ass with people pushing her in the right direction of where to go and what to do. If any of the audience tried for an autograph or picture of her while she was walking around, she would put up her hand to block her face and ignore them. These same kids that paid to be at an event she was HOSTING.

Her first weekend there she was with her family. The next weekend, she brought her friends, including this D list movie actor who was in one of the biggest franchise movies of all-time and has really done nothing since, and looked like he was on crack the entire night. She was required to get approval for her outfits beforehand and when the event organizers came to check on it, she ignored them.

On the other hand, this annoying female A list singer (for now), but probably just a one year wonder who we will hopefully never hear from again was headlining the event, was sweet and appreciative. There was bad blood between her and our hostess because they apparently got into it over this A list movie actor who starred in a failing television show before starring in one of the biggest movies of all-time. Our A list singer refused to be drawn into an argument while our hostess tried to bring it up several times by telling everyone that she was dating the A list actor now and that it was a secret. Uh huh. He does so much better than her."

The Crackie of the Caribbean is currently laid up in the hospital in St. Lucia after she passed out in her villa. In other not-so-shocking news, Prince Hot Ginge makes my no-no percolate. I mean, really. Amy Wino is always in the clinic. Bitch's filled a dozen punch-cards (every 10 visits gives you a free morphine drip) by now. This time, her spokeswhore blamed it on "dehydration."

Wino's rep told The Sun, “Amy fainted after being out in the sun and without drinking water. She has been taking part in a lot of activities which also played a part.”

Yes. That's it was the sun. It wasn't the other activities she did like: eating a crack rock for lunch, smoking up a banana tree for dessert or snorting up some sand after the island children joked that it would give her a buzz. No, it wasn't any of that. It was the SUN. You know the sun is giving her the death eye for blaming its ass.

While Wino's bitch says she was just thirstay, the locals say otherwise. They spotted Wino stumbling out of one of the beach bars earlier in the day after guzzling down half of the joint. LIGHTWEIGHT!

Everybody does that, it's just that nobody admits to it!' Last year, Taylor got star struck after meeting singer John Mayer: 'I was star struck by the fact that he came up and introduced himself to me.

I was like freaking out! I just respect him so much, I was rattling off quotes that he said in his blog, and he was probably like thinking that I'm a stalker. But he was amazing and sweet.'

Stephanie Pratt: Speidi Looking to Procreate


(This picture is probably the most awkward one of them.)
(Isn't it a shame that both of those melons have a higher combined IQ?)

Even though Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's wedding only took place a week ago now, there's already talk of the gruesome twosome starting a family.

"Heidi wants four boys," new sister-in-law Stephanie Pratt told Us at the grand opening of Catch Boutique in L.A. "Imagine ... four Spencer Pratts!"

Yes. Imagine.

Does Spencer's sister, who was a bridesmaid in The Hills wedding event along with Holly Montag, think that Heidi Montag will make a good mom?

"Yeah, she's really good with our niece," Stephanie said, referring to Ava, the flower girl at Speidi's wedding. "They're [both] kid lovers."

Stephanie Pratt, who said she had never been to a wedding before Spencer and Heidi's Saturday nuptials, thought the ceremony was "wonderful."

"It was the most - I didn’t think they could be that beautiful," she said, adding that her absolute favorite moment of the evening was, "for me, it was walking down the aisle - which wasn’t that long of an aisle - and I felt so nervous!"

"I had to walk slow, but I was running down it and crying, with my brother laughing at me because I could not keep it together. I’ll never forget that."

Even Steph and Spencer's parents, Skip and Janet Pratt, got choked up.

"They’ve always loved Heidi," she said. "My mom was very emotional. He’s her only boy."

Truly, so touching. We can't wait to watch it unfold on The Hills' finale.

Christian Bale Says “I’ll Be Back” In New Terminator Salvation TV Spot

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Warner Bros has begun airing two new television spots from Terminator Salvation, one of which features Christian Bale as John Connor, speaking the infamous phrase “I’ll Be Back.” Before you groan, in context it’s not nearly as cheesy as it sounds. And hey, we’ve already seen a young Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) say “Come with me if you want to live…”, which in my opinion is 100 times cheesier.

The second television spot shows a bit more of the story of Blair Williams (Moon Bloodgood) and Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington). Watch both television spots after the jump. Thanks to /Film reader Hargun K for the tip.

Does Sarah Jessica Parker make surrogacy more stylish?

There are so many techniques of conceiving and having babies these days that the old-fashioned way involving candlelight and Barry White can seem a bit technologically quaint, like using a rotary telephone.

Surrogacy got a big boost in the respectability stakes when it Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband Matthew Broderick reported last week that they are expecting twins via a surrogate.

Surrogacy is legal in the US and it’s becoming big business in India (reproductive outsourcing, it’s called).

According to the NY Times:


The cost [in India] comes to about $25,000, roughly a third of the typical price in the United States. That includes the medical procedures; payment to the surrogate mother, which is often, but not always, done through the clinic; plus air tickets and hotels for two trips to India (one for the fertilization and a second to collect the baby).

Under guidelines issued by the Indian Council of Medical Research, surrogate mothers sign away their rights to any children. A surrogate’s name is not even on the birth certificate.

It’s becoming the affordable options for the non-professional class of Americans without the big money to hire a US surrogacy agency. (Surrogates reportedly get about $7,500 of the fee.) In china, agencies are reportedly recruiting girls from poor villages to have babies.

That’s no problem for Parker and Broderick, who can pay over the odds for a premium class of American surrogate. (Theirs is maintaining her anonymity.)

I used to think surrogacy was something that only the weirdest and most desperate people would do. Then several years ago I discovered an imminently sensible acquaintance of mine was doing it. Like most people who I’ve heard of doing surrogacy, she had tried several rounds of IVF and been told she couldn’t carry a baby to term. I was surprised, but it softened my view about the practice.

New York writer Alex Kuczynski wrote about her experience with a surrogate. She reports that "Shirley Zager, director of the Organization of Parents Through Surrogacy, a national support group, told me that there have probably been about 28,000 surrogate births since 1976, a figure that includes gestational and traditional surrogacies."

(Gestational surrogacy is when the surrogate is carrying a child unrelated to her – only gestating it; traditional surrogacy is when the woman carrying it is the biological mother and the baby is conceived by artificial insemination.)

She writes that agencies say that while surrogacies are not poor, neither are they rich. She writes about the attitude of friends that she has somehow “gotten away” with something by not enduring pregnancy and childbirth. And she writes about being glad at one point about not carrying her own child.


As the months passed, something curious happened: The bigger Cathy was, the more I realized that I was glad — practically euphoric — I was not pregnant. I was in a daze of anticipation, but I was also secretly, curiously, perpetually relieved, unburdened from the sheer physicality of pregnancy. If I could have carried a child to term, I would have. But I carried my 10-pound dog in a BabyBjörn-like harness on hikes, and after an hour my back ached.
Cathy was getting bigger, and the constraints on her grew. I, on the other hand, was happy to exploit my last few months of nonmotherhood by white-water rafting down Level 10 rapids on the Colorado River, racing down a mountain at 60 miles per hour at ski-racing camp, drinking bourbon and going to the Super Bowl.

Surrogate mothers no doubt allow some people to have families who wouldn’t be able to otherwise. But as the practice proliferates, are we entirely comfortable with the idea of paying women – especially woman who in some way or the other really need the money offered – to carry strangers’ babies.

Do we only countenance it when it’s because of “pure” motives, and we’d be less comfortable if parents did it out of convenience or because of the mother’s work commitments or a desire to avoid the inconvenience and limitations of pregnancy? And - let's be honest - if you find out an actress you like is doing it, does it become that much easier to accept?


Supreme Court throws out Janet Jackson ruling

Justices order appeals court to consider reinstating fine for nipple flash

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court on Monday ordered a federal appeals court to re-examine its ruling in favor of CBS Corp. in a legal fight over entertainer Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction.

The high court on Monday directed the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia to consider reinstating the $550,000 fine that the Federal Communications Commission imposed on CBS over Jackson’s breast-baring performance at the 2004 Super Bowl.

The order follows the high court ruling last week that narrowly upheld the FCC’s policy threatening fines against even one-time uses of curse words on live television.

David Cook blogs about the death of his brother, Adam


I wanted to write everyone and say a few things, in light of recent events, to dispel any misinformation that may be circulating and to say thank you on behalf of my family and myself to everyone who has shown even the slightest bit of support to us and our efforts as a family to help eradicate this terrible affliction.

My brother, Adam, passed away at 11:52pm Eastern, May 2nd. He was 37 years old and leaves behind his wife and two children. We had played Sunfest in West Palm Beach that night, walking off stage at approximately 11:00pm Eastern, and I rushed to get on a plane to fly to Washington D.C., to be a part of the Race For Hope-D.C., a fundraiser for research and development of a cure for brain cancer. I learned of Adam’s passing upon getting to my hotel around 3:00am Eastern. I decided to run in the race, despite all of this, for two reasons. First, my brother never wanted his illness to affect others. That was evident in the fact that he wanted his illness to have no part in my experience on Idol, a point he was quite adamant about. So, with that wish in mind, I ran and was involved with the event as an homage to him. Secondly, there are many people who are still battling, and by running and sharing my brother’s story, I hope that it offers those still fighting that much more resolve to not succumb to this wretched disease.

I want to again thank everyone who donated to the race and continues to donate, sent a kind email, posted thoughts and prayers, called, etc. I take it as affirmation that my brother was the great man that I knew, and whose ideals I constantly try to uphold in myself. It is with those ideals in tow that I vow to continue to speak out in hopes of raising whatever necessary to help eliminate cancer entirely.

Also, I mentioned earlier that Adam never wanted his illness to affect anyone. So, with the exception of our Toledo, OH, show on May 6th, which we will do everything possible to reschedule, all other shows will go on as scheduled.

Lastly, thank you to everyone for allowing us, as a family, to grieve and come to terms privately. This event has shown me, beyond doubt, that I have the greatest people in my life, family, friends, and fans alike, and for that, I can never offer enough thanks.

Hanks Defends Angels & Demons Against Catholic Criticism

Hollywood star Tom Hanks is baffled by the criticism his new film Angels & Demons has attracted from leading Roman Catholics - because he insists there is "nothing sacrilegious" about the murder mystery.

The actor plays Harvard symbologist Dr. Robert Langdon in the big screen adaptation of author Dan Brown's book, about the murder of a physicist and a terrorist act against the Vatican by a secret brotherhood.

The movie is a prequel to 2006's The Da Vinci Code, based on another of Brown's hit books, which came under fire from Catholic leaders who claimed the film attacked the core beliefs of their faith.

Angels & Demons has been met with similar criticism before it is even released - but Hanks is adamant there is nothing offensive about the film.

He tells the New York Daily News, "People will see there's nothing sacrilegious about it at all. Yes, we had a few things go on that are completely fictionalised; but there's no reason to have a big hurly-burly over what is essentially a whodunit (murder mystery).

"There's no major theological discussion that goes on, other than science versus faith. There's no winner in that argument. I just solve the murder."

Angels & Demons is set to hit cinemas later this month.

Oh, whatever, just give me Ewan as a hot priest and you can offend anyone you want and I won't mind.

But everyone has to admit that Danny Gokey is the least talented person left on the show and the perfect pick to make people angry. He's the worst singer, he's the worst dancer, he's the most annoying, he adds nothing creative to any performance he does, he's the one the tweens seem to hate the most, he has no sense of humor, the only reason he made it this far is because he used his dead wife sob story, and he's the least marketable.

A Danny Gokey album would be like a less likeable Taylor Hicks releasing a new record: a complete disaster. The other 3 actually have a chance at legitimate careers. Also, the overly obsessive Idol fans this year want Adam to win. We think some suicide pacts were made when he hit the bottom 2 last week. So we'd like to see Gokey beat Adam and piss off the Idol fans even more. So it's no jokey, vote for Karaoke Gokey. It's a win-win for us this week no matter what happens. If Danny stays and kicks out someone the tweens and frauen like better, it'll be hilarious. If Danny goes home, we won't care one bit because we hate him.

At this point it'd be very funny to force Idol to crown Danny as the victor. They'd be stuck with him for at least one album of pure train wreck goodness. But now, we can't lose. VFTW Victory! Danny surely has urned this honor for using a personal tragedy to try to jumpstart a singing career.

so basically they've chosen Danny to screw the other 3 over even though Danny is clearly one of the favorites
oh VFTW do you actually think that your stupid votes actually make a difference?
and can we stop with the dead wife stuff? yeah he mentioned her in the beginning but Danny hasn't mentioned her at all since he made the top 13 so stfu
I am voting for Danny this week and IDGAF

BEYONCE: top female of this decade? + new commercial

Beyonce has undoubtedly been holding her own since splitting from Destiny's Child with the debut album "Dangerously In Love (2003)" but is she near Mariah and Whitney Houston territory as this decade's top female artist ?

According to Billboard, Beyonce is widening her lead on the charts with the most top 10 singles recorded by a female artist on the Hot 100 since 2000.

Sugar Ray attempting a comeback

Now that Mark McGrath's TV career is dead, the ex-"Extra" host is trying to revive his music. McGrath's band, Sugar Ray, is preparing a comeback and has a new album, "Music for Cougars" due out July 21. The band's rep says, "It's a very summer-y sound. Very Sugar Ray." One music insider said, "It's being released by Pulse -- an indie label -- because all the majors passed. The sound is too dated. Very pop/disco." Sugar Ray's rep said, "We never shopped it to the majors."

Cotillard Trades Flight Gear for Gown

Marion Cotillard is trading her aviator look for belle of the ball. The Oscar-winning actress, who just returned from Morocco where she wrapped filming “The Last Voyage of Lancaster,” in which she plays an aviator, was on her way to Christian Dior on Friday morning to meet couturier John Galliano for a fitting ahead of Monday night’s Costume Institute ball at the Met. “I’m about to leave and get that dress,” she said, after a screening of a seven-minute film in support of the Lady Dior handbag that will debut on the Internet. Not that Cotillard was eager to dump her flight gear. “I love that look: the helmet, the goggles, the jacket, everything. It’s very masculine. You feel confident,” she said.

Next up for the actress is a role in Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” and a French film by her boyfriend — and “Lancaster” co-star — Guillaume Canet.

NBC picks up 'Medium'

NBC hasn't put out any official word on its 2009-10 lineup yet, but the pieces are starting to fill in -- with the latest one being the renewal of the veteran drama "Medium"

Details are a little bit sketchy on the show's sixth season, but reports say NBC is ordering something less than a typical full season. The series is likely to get between 13 and 18 episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The "Medium" pickup follows on the heels of NBC renewing its rookie cop series "Southland" late last week. Another new show, "Parks and Recreation," is expected to join them when NBC makes its schedule announcement Monday afternoon.

The trade papes are still saying, meanwhile, that "Chuck" fans may be kept in suspense for a week or two while NBC makes a decision on its on-the-fence shows. Dsicussions with studios about renewals are primarily focused on budgets and license fees in anticipation of a weak upfront ad market.

NBC is also reportedly stocking up on dramas for midseason as a hedge against Jay Leno's prime-time show faring poorly in the fall.


I'm so happy! Medium is one of my all-time favourite shows.

viggo mortenson's evil twin

THE HUNT FOR GOLLUM - FULL Trailer 1 from Independent Online Cinema on Vimeo.

Hardcore Lord of the Rings nerds will get a little somethin'-somethin' on Sunday to help them through the Middle Earth drought until Jackson's production of The Hobbit is released.

But let's be real. This internet-only production isn't a "fan film." Rather, it's a vehicle for a crew of young, talented Hollywood wannabes to break into the industry by showing their chops.

It's true, the flick could end up being as badly-written and poorly-acted as your average fan film, but it's not likely. And in any case, the production values completely deprive the audience the pleasure of audio-visual comic fail should it turn out to be otherwise unwatchable. The trailer proves that.

There is further evidence that this is a professional endeavor, not an amateur one.

The lead actor who plays Aragorn, Adrien Webster (who claims to be a devout "fan," as do all of the 150 volunteer crew-members) was pressed to provide some nerd credentials so that the audience didn't feel it was being exploited.

"I don’t think we’re exploiting anything," said Webster. "I'm actually Viggo Mortenson's evil twin."

Robert and Kristen at a concert

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have had rumors around about their relationship since they signed on to the Twilight series, and this weekend the two left their costars out of it and went to a concert together. They were out to see Sam Bradley, an old friend of Robert's who has contributed to the movie soundtracks, at a benefit concert for the Gewa Project. Robert and Kristen have something fun to celebrate as well, Twilight was nominated for seven MTV movie awards including best kiss. Looking at these photos, it's easy to see why — the chemistry is unmistakable.

scarjo's segment on 'New York, I Love You' is not "unwatchable"

EW has confirmed that Scarlett Johansson's first directorial effort, a movie short starring Kevin Bacon, has been left on the cutting room floor of the upcoming anthology film New York, I Love You. But, contrary to the many Internet rumors, it's not because the footage was unwatchable. "It's not a bad piece at all," says one insider on the film. "In fact, I quite liked it."

The compilation features 12 love stories, all set in New York and shot by filmmakers as varied as Mira Nair (Vanity Fair), Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth), Joshua Marston (Maria Full of Grace), and Brett Ratner (Rush Hour). So why axe Scarlett's piece? It seems her somber story about an obsessive-compulsive man who only finds peace when he reaches Coney Island and buys a hot dog just didn't jive with the rest of the shorts. "It's shot in black and white and there's very little dialogue or interpersonal relationships," explains the insider. "It just didn't work in the context of the movie."

But that doesn't mean you won't be seeing the featurette. Distributor Vivendi Entertainment plans to use Johansson's short and the mini-movie from Russian filmmaker Andrei Zvyagintsev -- which was also cut from I Love You -- as promotional material for the collaborative indie (debuting later this year). The shorts will be put online ahead of the film's release to whet fans' appetite for the unofficial follow-up to 2007's anthology Paris, je t'aime. As if that's necessary given the star-studded collection of actors and directors!

Duff dishes on her role in locally filmed ‘Provinces of Night’

Like many Southern Gothic heroines, Hilary Duff’s character, Raven Halfacre, in “Provinces of Night” is described as “precocious,” mature beyond her years. Related Links: * Hilary Duff among actors filming 'Provinces' in Pender County * Casting call: Hilary Duff film seeks extras But during her 10 days filming in the area, Duff was having fun getting back to her own childhood. The Texas native enjoyed working in rural Pender County where the weather was just as nice as the people. And she even learned, a little bit, how to roller skate. The actress plays the daughter of a promiscuous alcoholic (Sheila Kelley) who has difficulty expressing love for her child.

Raven herself is no angel either and soon embarks in a relationship with a kindred soul, Fleming Bloodworth (Reece Daniel Thompson). Fleming has his own family problems to deal with, and together, they learn about love, family and themselves. The Star-News caught up with Duff in Atkinson during her final day of filming. After a short scene with Kelley, she sat outside under a shade tree to discuss the film and her thoughts on the Wilmington area. “Provinces of Night” continues filming through mid May.

Q: This is kind of a different character. The movie has an almost Southern Gothic feel to it. What’s Raven like?

A: I wouldn’t say ‘gothic,’ but she definitely is in a dark place with her family. Her mom, you can kind of tell they have a loving relationship but I think my character’s constantly challenged with, you know, who she is. If she’s like her mother or if she’s totally different, but she doesn’t know how to be different. And she’s never fallen in love or even knew that that was out there until she meets Fleming and she gets to experience something that’s kind of magical to her. And it gets taken away. It’s a very hard story to explain but everybody’s characters are key and it’s really just about how all of their relationships are intertwined, I guess. And how you hurt the people that you love.

Denise Richards Will Never Sing in Public Again!

Denise Richards wants you to know that there's a very good reason she sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" the other day at a Chicago Cubs game.

And, unlike other onscreen vixens like Leighton Meester, it certainly has nothing to do with her trying to impress people with her singing abilities.

The E! reality star knows she cannot carry a tune, but…

Richards was in the Windy City for a fundraiser for the Kidney Cancer Association (her mom died of the disease about a year ago). While she was there, Richards asked Cubs management if the group could set up an informational booth at Wrigley Field during Friday's game.

"In return, they said, 'Will you sing?' " Richards explains to me. "So I said yes, because it's for a good cause and we want to raise awareness about kidney cancer."

Unfortunately, the cancer message got lost along the way, because as soon as video of Richards' performance hit the Internet, the trashing began.

"I'm clearly not a singer," she says. "I wasn't doing it to show off my pipes. Thank God I wasn't singing the national anthem. But I thought it would be fun...I had no idea the backlash I would get."

As for her critics, Richards said they need not worry about her ever singing in public again.

"It took everything in me to get up there and do that," she says. "My dad and my sister kept saying, 'Just remember you're doing this for Mom,' so that's how I got through it. It's just unfortunate that doing something good was turned into such a negative."


Ryan Reynolds for BD?

Twilight Examiner has a short article about a group of fans who started a Facebook Group in support of Ryan as Garrett for Breaking Dawn before it has even been given the green light.

"Jolly, olive-skinned, and observant, Garrett’s character is [*spoiler*] a sort of speech-giving savior to the Cullens inBreaking Dawn with the Renesmee situation. Standing up to the Volturi, this somewhat messy wanderer has to use his words to save the day.

With Reynolds, we all know that he is a fast-talking, speech-wielding know-it-all type in most of his films, but he can also pull of some rather intense scenes as well."

Michelle is an extra-lucky girl this time around, as she’s starring alongside “Lars and the Real Girl” stud Ryan Gosling.

My girl crush Lauren London in Complex Magazine; she is half-jewish and loves Barbra Streisand

Look at our girl Lauren London in Complex Magazine doing the model thingy with the supple cakes. In the interview with Complex, Lauren talks about being half Jewish among other things:

We hear your idol is Barbra Streisand. Can’t say we saw that coming.
Lauren London: You think because I’m some little black girl, I can’t love Barbara? [Laughs.] I’m the little half-black, half-Jewish girl who was odd and awkward. I try to be myself. Barbra didn’t look like Vivian Leigh or Lucille Ball: She was Barbra Streisand. She made her own mark.

But you’re probably the only Streisand fan to appear on a Clipse mixtape.
Lauren London: I’ve been knowing Pharrell and them since I was really, really young. They’re like family to me. Pusha is definitely my brother.

It seems you’ve been connected to a number of people in the rap world.
Lauren London: Most of those are rumors! I don’t have a lot of friends; most of the friends I have, I’ve had since high school.
Fair enough.

Lauren London: [Laughs.] So…what were you going to say?
I was just going to ask about the kind of guys you’re attracted to. Are you attracted to rappers? [Laughs.]
Lauren London: [Laughs.] No.

OK, then how do you like your man to dress?
Lauren London: For some odd reason, I like a man in sweatsuits. Obviously, you want your man to look good in a suit, but I like when men look comfortable and the swagger just stands out of that.

And what should this man know before approaching you?
Lauren London: Don’t be thirsty. Be comfortable in your own skin. Don’t mention anything about Hollywood and you’ll be OK. I don’t want to hear about your jet or your car. Be emotionally stable. I’m interested in a guy who’s a lover of God, a lover of music, a lover of poetry, a lover of women— “Lover of women”—that’s important. Lauren London: That’s very important!

We dig us some Lauren and in the pictures below she looks better than ever… more mature and sure of her self now.

Hugh Jackman to haunt 'Ghostopolis'

He'll star in and produce the graphic novel adaptation

Hugh Jackman is moving from mutants to ghosts.

The "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" star is attached to "Ghostopolis," an upcoming graphic novel from Doug TenNapel that the author recently set up at Disney. Jackman will produce through his Seed Prods., as will the Gotham Group.

The story centers on a man who works for the government's Supernatural Immigration Task Force. His job is to send ghosts who have escaped into our world back to Ghostopolis. When a living boy accidentally is sent to the other side, the agent must team with a female ghost (and former flame) to bring him back.

No director or writer has been attached to the project. Casey Wolfe is overseeing for Disney.

TenNapel's graphic novels are in high demand as movie projects, with nearly all of them set up at studios. His dinosaur tale "Tommysaurus Rex" is set up at Universal, "Creature Tech" at New Regency and "Monster Zoo" at Paramount. Gotham, which produced last year's release "The Spiderwick Chronicles," recently set up the young-adult novel "Spanking Shakespeare" at Paramount. The company also reps TenNapel.

Seed Prods., which Jackman runs with wife Deborra-Lee Furness and John Palermo, is developing several comic book projects, including an adaptation of Virgin Comics' "Nowhere Man." He is repped by Endeavor and Lou Coulson Associates in the U.K.

Hef speaks on Heidi Montag in Playboy

heidi montag Pictures, Images and Photos
Heidi Montag wants to give her new hubby Spencer Pratt an original wedding gift, which is why she's going to strip down naked and pose for Playboy magazine.

As Hollyscoop previously reported, the self-proclaimed Christian girl is currently in talks to bank $500,000 to strip for the popular men’s magazine.

While Heidi is staying mum on the subject, Hugh Hefner spoke to Hollyscoop about the big news at Playboys 50th Annual Playmate Announcement ceremony in Las Vegas this past weekend.

When asked about the rumored shoot, Hef smiled and told Hollyscoop, "I think she is going to be."'

We hear that Montag won't be stripping down entirely though. She'll reportedly only have her breasts exposed, which makes those puppies worth $250K each.

Her shoot will be fairly similar to the one Aubrey O'Day did a few months back The former Danity Kane star was also reportedly paid $500,000 for the 8 page spread.

More recently, 45 year-old Lisa Rinna stripped down for the magazine, but she left little for the imagination. Check out her photos here.

What are your thoughts on Heidi's Playboy shoot? Do you think it will help or hurt her career? Would you pay to see her cha-chas?

Radiohead's Managers Advised Band to Break Up Before In Rainbows

Imagine a world without Radiohead. Sad, isn't it? Well, if the band had followed its management's advice, we would be living in such a world right now--and we wouldn't even have In Rainbows to listen to. Or "the Radiohead model" to follow. (Though, surely, we would have come up with a different name for the latter.)

The Irish Times reports that Brian Message, of Radiohead's management company Courtyard Management, along with two of his partners, "actually advised the band to split up," during the making of In Rainbows. (Via the Daily Swarm.) Kind of weird that this guy is admitting something like this...

Take it away, Irish Times:

"Two years after leaving EMI Radiohead were still no closer to recording an album. The songs were written but the band couldn't achieve the sound they were looking for in the studio. Courtyard felt maybe it was time to call it a day. Surely professional managers shouldn’t encourage their most profitable act to split up?
'I've been lucky to work with some great artists and Radiohead are a once in a generation act,' says Message. 'But you have to be honest if it's not working. You have to have passion about what you do. I'm an accountant but I love music and I'm passionate about the artists I work with.'"

Thanks for not listening to them, Radiohead. Now go make another album, OK?

Julia Roberts Inks Lower Back with Kids Names

Following her edgy (and obscenity filled) tribute to Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts continues to reveal her wild side.

Spotted Monday on vacation in Hawaii with husband Danny Moder and their three kids, cameras caught a new tattoo peeking out of the Oscar winner's green bikini.

Situated on the small of her back, the tat consists of the names of her little ones surrounding an illustration.

Four-year-old twins Phinnaeus and Hazel's names are side by side rounding her backside, while just above them is Henry, nearly 2.

Roberts is next slated to appear in the movie adaptation of the best-selling Eat, Pray, Love.

Westwick kisses but won't tell

Ed Westwick has refused to comment on his relationship status despite being spotted smooching with Gossip Girls co-star Jessica Szohr.

The British actor, who plays Chuck Bass in the hit American TV series, joined fellow British celebrities such as Vinnie Jones in a BritWeek charity football match at LA Galaxy's stadium.

When he wasn't running after the ball, Ed was pictured kissing Jessica, who was watching from the stands.

But asked after the match if his girlfriend was there to support him, Ed said: "My who?"

In recent months the pair have regularly been pictured together looking like an item.

They are currently on a break from filming after shooting the second series of Gossip Girl - and Ed said he was looking forward to going back to work.

Asked how his life has changed since he joined the show, the 21-year-old said: "Well I'm playing in celebrity soccer games - that's a little bit something. I'm playing with World Cup-winning footballers, so it's a little different."

The British side was thrashed 10-4 by the Rest of the World team.

Energetic Ed was named Man of the Match, but he dismissed the award as a "joke".

The first photo, which appeared just a few minutes ago on, shows a woman — who bares a stricking resemblance to the beauty queen — staring seductively into a camera while wearing only a pair of pink panties and using a strategically placed arm to cover her naughty bits.


Alicia Jacobs, Entertainment Reporter at KVBC in Las Vegas, has seen all six of the photos and says some are much more revealing. Alicia believes the flicks may have been taken after Carrie’s pageant-financed breast augmentation about six weeks ago.

Hmmm…These explosive pictures could be devastating for Miss California, whose anti-gay marriage campaign recently resulted in a partnership with the National Organization for Marriage and helped to make made her increasingly popular with right-wing conservatives.

Can you guys believe the nerve of this bozo? Using the Lord Jesus Christ as an excuse to support inequality when she’s just as big a sinner as anyone?

Let this be a lesson to us all; you may want to refrain from chastising other people about how they live their lives when there are digital photos of your ass buried on somebody’s hard drive. This reminds me of something my mother always said when I was growing up- Ah, that’s right, something about stones and glass houses. Ring a bell?


Time for a TL;DR Pete Wentz Post!! He actually says something kinda intelligent though?!

Okay fine:
-He's co-writing a book.
-He realizes people hate him, but defends the band as doing what they love.
-His phone bill is over $5000 a month when he's overseas.
-Folie A Deux is about being selfless and contains satire.
-He is not a role model.
-He sleeps three hours a night.
-and he makes some awkward metaphor about vegetarian sharks.

'Gossip Girl' Star Leighton Meester Won't Choose Between Acting, Music

'I feel like it goes hand in hand,' actress/singer says of her dual careers.

By Jocelyn Vena, with reporting by Eric Ditzian

Leighton Meester might be the queen bee on "Gossip Girl," but she's just getting her start when it comes to the music industry. The actress/singer, who will release her debut album later this year on Universal, took some time out from shooting Cobra Starship's "Good Girls" music video to talk about the positive reviews she's getting for the leaked song "Birthday."

"I was working with really cool people on it. ... It's a really fun, great song," she said. "I am very happy with the reactions, and I love it, but there's a lot of other stuff that I'm really happy with that is not being leaked at the moment but will come out later on this year that I'm really stoked about."

Those songs are ones the TV star has been working on for quite some time. "I've been in L.A. for about a month now just working pretty steadily in the studio, and then last year, I was doing the same thing around this time," she said. "And before that, I was in my apartment, so it's a really professional big deal for me making real music."

Meester says some of her influences are Madonna, Whitney Houston and Cyndi Lauper, who she's looked up to for a long time. "When I was 3, [I would sing into the] hair brush — and when I was 20 [too]," the 23-year-old laughed. "It's a dream come true. This is crazy and awesome."

Meester doesn't feel any pressure to choose between acting and singing. "I don't know if I can really choose a favorite of what I want to do more or what I love more, 'cause I feel like I always felt I can do both," she said. "I feel like it goes hand in hand. Singing really is acting. In a lot of ways, it's much more personal. I love music, and being able to work on that is amazing."

P!nk denies being bisexual

Pop punk Pink has blasted claims she told a British newspaper she’s bisexual — insisting an interview, published in Britain’s News of The World newspaper, is pure fabrication.

The singer, real name Alecia Moore, was quoted as saying, “It seems as if bisexuality is a trend and I should whip up the masses. Well, I don’t believe in trends, I just believe in me.”

But the So What? hitmaker — who recently rekindled her romance with ex-husband Carey Hart after they split almost a year ago — has taken to her Twitter account to set the record straight.

“I just read that im [sic] bisexual. so 1991,” she wrote. “good thing people write articles about me so i can get my facts str8. i mean straight. read on people.

Everyone should go buy his books, Lucky Man and Always Looking Up. I think his first one is a lot better than his newest one, even so all profits from the books go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research which is an awesome foundation for finding a cure for Parkinson's.
Oh, and feel free to spam this post with Back to the Future .gifs and macros. I hope these exist, they need to.

On maturing early: “I’ve lived the life of a 35-year-old since I was 18. I’m so suspicious of boys-slash-men. I just don’t like them or trust them.”

On giving male writers an amped-up version of her past: “They’re boys; they’re easily toyed with. I tell stories and have them eating out of my hand.”
