Arquettes in Discussions for 'Scream' Reboot

If you needed proof that everything old in Hollywood is becoming new again, look no further than Scream. The mid-'90s franchise that sent-up slightly older horror flicks is being remade into a whole new set of movies, starting this fall. Writer-director Kevin Williamson has been working on a trilogy that will bring back many of the characters from the original movies.

And EW has learned exclusively that Williamson has approached Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette to return. Deals have yet to be signed, however, as all involved try to hammer out potential scheduling conflicts that could arise now that Courteney Cox Arquette's pilot Cougar Town was picked up by ABC. (Agents for the actors have yet to return EW's request for comment.) No word on whether Neve Campbell's character, among others, will make the cut.

I would love to see some new "Scream" movies, but I will be pissed if they bring back Dewey, Gale, and Sidney just to kill them off. I want to believe they live happily ever after.

Stevie Wonder's Son Busted for Domestic Violence

We've learned Stevie Wonder's son, Keita Morris, was popped by LAPD early Monday morning on charges of felony domestic violence.

Law enforcement sources tell us they received a call about a verbal argument between Morris and an unidentified woman -- and that the argument turned physical. We're told when cops arrived they noticed marks on the woman and took Morris into custody.

He was held on $50,000 bond, which he posted later Monday morning.

Morris is Wonder's son from former girlfriend Yolanda Simmons.

As if Britney Spears' "Circus" tour wasn't already raunchy enough, the pop princess is about to step it up big time on the UK leg of her tour. She's reportedly planing to hire naked acrobats, topless burlesque performers and dancing dwarves to perform after each of her eight shows.

A source says:

"It's going to be crazy. Britney wanted to throw parties people will be talking about for years. I promise you, you've never seen anything so explicit in your life."

Britney will be performing eight shows in London between June 3 and 14, before moving on to Manchester, Ireland and France.

Her US shows were definitely R-Rated, but in Europe, anything goes and Britney is gonna go there.


Elisabeth Shue is Ready to Kick Some Pirahna Ass

Also, porn star Riley Steele talked about her role in the movie. She gives some spoilery details about her character, as well as the characters played by Jerry O'Connell, Jessica Szohr, and Kelly Brook.

JoBros, please hide your disco sticks.

Lady Gaga hopes to one day deflower virginal pop trio The Jonas Brothers.

(She’s even willing to do Kevin, affectionately known as “The Ugly One” by those who know and loathe all things Jonas.)

The 23-year-old “Love Game” singer — a former NYC exotic dancer– is a huge fan of the brothers from neighboring New Jersey — and she’s not at all put off by the persistent presence of the promise rings Kevin, Nick, and Joe wear to stay chaste until marriage.

“I love The Jonas Brothers, they’re very talented. I met them once. I’d like to have a foursome with them.”

Steve Martin was there to promote his new banjo album, which I am going to get ASAP, and Paul Simon was there because he's going on tour with Artie G. in Australia. Paul is adorable like usual, and even though I don't usually like Fallon, you could tell how in awe he was to be interviewing Steve and Paul. Kind of sweet~.

Paul Simon also mentioned Judy Garland and it was like he was speaking directly to me.

Costar: Kristen Stewart Still "Settling Into" Fame

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kristen Stewart seemed more uncomfortable than ever at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, dropping her Best Female Performance award and admitting to fans that she is "awkward."

But her Twilight and New Moon costar, Peter Facinelli, tells Usmagazine.com, "That's just Kristen. I think she has that shaky knee syndrome and that's part of her charm."

"To sweep the awards like that? If that doesn't build someone's confidence, I don't know what can,"
he told Us Tuesday at the NYC premiere of Showtime's Nurse Jackie.

As for Stewart's sudden rise to fame, "I think being mind-blown about it isn't the same as being uncomfortable with it. I think she's got a real charm and grace about her, and I think she really is settling into it. We had a great time filming New Moon and we're all really excited for the next one - Kristen included."

He said the vampire sequel (out Nov. 20) is now being edited.

"Hopefully they'll pick the good parts and make a good movie, Facinelli told Us. "I'm excited to actually see it."

Cameron Diaz: I'd Love a Bigger Butt

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It may be hard to believe, but even Cameron Diaz has body issues.

The actress, 36, who admits to having her nose fixed after breaking it four times ("Shit just finds my face," she explains), says she probably wouldn't have more plastic surgery, but does think about how she'd change her shape.

"I'd love a bigger butt, more meat on my bones," she tells the July issue of Marie Claire, on newsstands June 9. "I'd love to be more voluptuous. It's just not my body type."

But the topic that is really on Diaz's mind is giving Earth an image makeover. "The planet needs a publicist," says the eco-conscious actress, who shot an exclusive video for the magazine in which she talks to regular people about the environment.

"It's the planet, you know what I mean?" says the actress. "She should be ... a star. How do we make this little planet of ours a big star? I want everybody to know who she is."

But LeAnn's rep says that simply isn't true, blasting the stalking rumor when speaking with Extra.

"These comments are incredibly defamatory, and while there are always two sides to every story, LeAnn continues to remain above the fray and chooses not to play this out in the press," her rep states.

Spencer Pratt Disowned by Parents?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In yet another mystifying, crazy twist in the saga that is Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag's life in front of the cameras, Spencer's parents are threatening to disown their reality TV-loving son... or so Spencer would have us believe.

Say what? An insider reveals exclusively to OK! that someone in the Speidi camp put calls out to legal counsel to spread the word that Spencer was about to be disowned after the couples' quitting antics on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!.

"They are so disgusted by Spencer's actions, especially now that he's bringing the charity angle into it, that they are about to publicly disown him and ask that he no longer use Pratt as his last name,"
an insider dishes to start the gossip train going. But OK! has learned that his parents are clueless, and that the legal shenanigans are all Spencer's doing.

Meanwhile, two people who were supposedly Heidi and Spencer arrived in L.A. last night covered in black sheets... but it was Stephanie Pratt and another pretender, we've learned. And while Spencer claims they were never going to quit, NBC was more than ready to get rid of Speidi. An insider tells OK! the peacock network bought their plane tickets in attempt to stop their antics.

Brooke Hogan is a non-virgin with implants

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Brooke Hogan stopped by Howard Stern to promote the new season of 'Brooke Knows Best'. Howard asked if Brooke only pretended to be single on her TV show, and Brooke admitted she kind of was dating Stacks, her producer: "It's not that I'm into black guys, it's just that I'm into guys who are good looking."

Howard wondered if Brooke was no longer a virgin, and Brooke half-confirmed it, using a Spring Break-type phrase: "I'm totally legal and living regal." Brooke added that she actually lost her virginity to a guy who was on a few episodes of the old “Hogan Knows Best” show - and, on the new season of “Brooke knows Best,” will kiss a girl: "Her name was Daniela...she had, like, buzzed hair. She was kinda butch."

Howard asked Brooke if she thought “Hogan Knows Best” ruined her parents' marriage, but Brooke thought the problems were already there: "I think it was all just underlying and, like a pressure cooker, made it come out." Brooke then took issue with her mom's 20-year-old boyfriend: "I don't feel like it's the right thing for her." Brooke added: "I can't say that she does [drugs]. Do I have a gut feeling that she has something to come clean about? Yes. But that's just my gut."

Howard wondered why Brooke has denied reports that she has fake boobs, but Brooke claimed she hadn't: "I've never said that - I just never commented...my boobs are fake." Brooke said she just didn't like the shape of her natural breasts: "I wanted them more rounded...I like them [now]. They definitely look pretty. But I didn't need them." When Howard pointed out that she had claimed to have real breasts on his show, Brooke explained that she had the surgery in the last year.

Howard asked if she's fully shaven. Brooke said ''Who wants a bush?'' She said she likes hairy men but she likes to be clean down there.

Artie wanted to ask Rachel [Brooke's assistant] a question because Brooke said she was smart. Artie asked her who the vice president was. Brooke said it was Condoleeza Rice. Rachel said that she had to think about it. Rachel said she knows it's a guy. She said it starts with a B or something. Howard told her to keep going. Artie wanted to see how smart this chick was since Brooke told them that she was ''so smart.'' Rachel didn't know the answer. Brooke knew who the President was. She even know his first and last name. Howard told her the Vice President was Richard Simmons. Brooke asked if they were being serious.

First Look Posters: Iron Man 2, Spider-Man 4, and Oobermind

AICN have posted a batch of new promotional images and posters from the Licensing Show in Las Vegas
, including a promotional poster for Spider-Man 4, a generic Iron Man 2 character banner and a poster featuring Shrek and Donkey for Shrek Forever After.

Collapse )

But the thing that caught my attention was the first promotional art for DreamWorks Animation’s Oobermind. Maybe just because we havent seen any of these character designs before. This is the superhero project being produced by Ben Stiller, formerly titled Master Mind. I’ve cleaned up some of the images and posted them after the jump. Head on over to AICN to see the promotional art in higher resolution.

Written by Alan J. Schoolcraft and Brent Simons, Oobermind is a satirical take on superhero movies (think The Incredibles). When super villain Oobermind (Robert Downey Jr) defeats his arch-rival Metro Man, the world should be his oyster. But instead, Oobermind falls into total despair. It turns out that life without a rival is life without a point for him. So he creates a new superhero rival. Unfortunately, the new hero wants to be a super villain too. Who can we turn to? Who has what it takes to stand up to this menace? Who will defend the innocent? Oobermind! That’s who. Tina Fey also provides her voice for the film. Oobermind is scheduled to hit theaters on November 5th 2010.

First pics, Maggie Gyllenhaal on set of Nanny McPhee sequel


Four years after Emma Thompson enchanted children with the film adaptation of Nanny McPhee, the beloved character is back.

The Oscar-winner has teamed up with Ralph Fiennes, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Rhy Ifans and Dame Maggie Smith to film the sequel Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang.

The actress, 50, was spotted in full costume as she filmed scenes with Dark Knight star Maggie, 31, in London today.

Help is at hand: Emma Thompson (R) as Nanny McPhee is transported to the Forties to help struggling farmer's wife Mrs Green (Maggie Gyllenhaal) look after her children

Emma was back in her shapeless black coat, backcombed hair, spotted face and showing off her snaggletooth as she filmed outdoor scenes with Maggie.
Set in World War II, Maggie was dressed in a 1940s-style floral dress as she plays Mrs Green, a mother struggling to cope with her children and running a farm while her husband in away fighting.
Harried Mrs Green is also attempting to care for her nieces and nephews, who have been evacuated to her country abode from the city.

Welsh actor Rhys played Mrs Green's villainous brother-in-law Phil and Dame Maggie plays befuddled Mrs. Docherty.

Magical: Nanny McPhee travels from the 19th century to help a mother in the 1940s

As well as starring in the movie, Emma is also writing and producing the film.

She said recently: 'The first Nanny McPhee film took nine years to get made because the script took seven years to develop.

'But this one, because I learned so much on the last one, only took three years. I’m really excited about it.'
Emma turned down the chance to star in new Harry Potter films to make Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang.
Listen children: Maggie films a scene with a gaggle of children
She explained: 'The second film is set one hundred years later; the only thing that is the same is Nanny McPhee.
It’s about two families: A family of country children, and a family of town children, both during the war. So it’s about evacuees, and the father is away at war.
'The Harry Potters are great big franchises that are something I’m not emotionally attached to or necessarily particularly creatively attached to.
'That’s more like doing a turn, whereas the Nanny McPhees are something I’ve written. The art is in those films, they’re very handmade, they’re something that’s very close to me. Those are the ones I really care about.'

Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang is scheduled for release in 2010.

Still not sure about the Maggie factor, but OMG I'm so excited!!!
Also, doesn't Maggie's costume look like something from her own closet?

EDIT: I love how everyone is getting pissed about Emma doing this instead of HP. She'd probably get 5 mins totaly screen time in HP, and you know they'd cut her good scenes. It's not like you're missing much.

Legendary Punk Exene Cervenka Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis

June 2, 2009

After some months of not feeling 100% healthy, I recently had some medical tests run
and the prognosis is that I am suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.
Apparently, it has been affecting me for quite some time.

Although this is obviously unfortunate news, I am choosing to see the positive in it.
I, and X as a band, have supported the Sweet Relief charity since the mid-1990's;
the irony of this is not lost on any of us. Sweet Relief was started as an aide to uninsured artists by musician Victoria Williams when she herself was diagnosed with MS in 1992.

While this diagnosis will most certainly mean some changes for me, personally, it will not affect my commitments to the current X U.S. tour, nor will it affect my solo album that is slated for release this fall on Bloodshot Records.

My focus will certainly be on maintaining my health--many people remain strong and continue to live their lives as productively as they had before an MS diagnosis and I plan to be one of those people.

It Is OVER - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie SPLIT!!!!!


After months of behind-the-scenes battles, it's finally over between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Hollywood's most glamorous power couple - who never married despite having six children - have grown tired of trying to gloss over their problems following five tumultuous years together, say sources.

Brad and Angelina are going their separate ways with the hope of reuniting in the future if they can repair their volatile relationship, disclosed an insider.

"They will make it official. It looks like Brad will be shooting two movies in California and in the Amazon, while Angelina is retreating to their French chateau with the rest of the family.

Rep: Heidi and Spencer Are Still on I'm a Celebrity

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Speidi's prayers have been answered: The couple, who quit I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here on Tuesday and later prayed on Twitter that they would be allowed to return, will remain on the show, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's rep tells TVGuide.com.

"Heidi and Spencer are still in the jungle and part of the show," Rick Rhodes said in a statement.

A rep for the NBC show could not immediately be reached for comment.

The fickle duo bid the survival-of-the-fittest show adieu — seemingly for good — on Tuesday's episode after threatening to throw in the towel twice on Monday's premiere. But after a few hours away from the Costa Rican jungle and the cameras, Pratt — who was baptized by Stephen Baldwin on Tuesday's episode — posted in a series of tweets that the newlyweds have seen the errors of their ways.

"The devil fooled speidi in to making an awful decision and we are praying to Jesus to get NBC to give us another shot to redeem," Pratt wrote.

Speidi have griped about the show's very un-Hollywood conditions since the premiere, in which Pratt was shown placing a call to NBC President Ben Silverman to complain.

On Tuesday's episode, the Pratts competed against each other in a challenge. Spencer Pratt helped earn a meal for the men's team, but that wasn't enough of an incentive to stay.

Telling his fellow contestants that he's "too rich and too famous" for the show, Pratt announced the couple would depart the jungle for the hills. The couple was chauffeured away, but were not seen boarding a plane.

Please be true! They are so lol worthy on that shit.

Behind The Scenes of The Expendables!

What do you get when Sylvestor Stallone decides to make an action movie with as many action stars of the last few decades as he can find? The Expendables, set for April 23, 2010.

As of now the cast includes: Sylvestor Stallone (also writing and directing), Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Eric Roberts, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Charisma Carpenter, Giselle Itie, Brittnay Murphy, David Zayas and Amin Joseph. 

Filming started last month in Brazil.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said in an interview with TheArnoldFans.com that he would do a cameo in the film when Stallone asked him to participate:

So I... naturally when he asked me if I would do a cameo, which will just be something quick, like I walk out of a hotel or out of a office building and he will walk up and we will bump into each other and there will be some mumbling and then we will walk off (crowd laughs). So it will be something very simple, that will be again, just a cameo, so that's what we're going to do. I promised him I'd do that and I'm looking forward to that. Ok? Good.

It appears that this film has an eerily similar plot to the 1988 film by the same name starring Anthony Finetti, Peter Nelson, and Loren Haynes; though it does not appear to be an official "spinoff."  That film had a team of elite commandos dubbed by the government as "expendable," but instead proved themselves to be heroes. 

The 2010 Stallone version follows a similar group of highly trained mercenaries as they embark on a mission to overthrow a South American dictator.

The on-screen incarnation of Jacob Black was seen leaving a meeting with Hollywood heavyweight producer/writer/director Garry Marshall ("Pretty Woman," "Beaches," "Overboard").

Witness: Kate "Completely Ignored" Kids on Trip

According to several fellow vacationers, Kate Gosselin didn't pay her eight kids much attention on their getaway to Bald Head Island, N.C., when the camera crew wasn't around - even though she pulled twin daughters Madelyn and Cara, 8, out of school for the for-TV trip.

Between texting on her phone and huddling with her bodyguard Steve Neild (with whom husband Jon once feared she was having an affair), "she completely ignored her children the entire time," fellow vacationer Ann Michele Sweeney tells the newest issue of Us Weekly.

"When Kate sat on the edge of the pool, she told one of [the twins], 'If you splash me, you're dead meat,'" Sweeney says. "She was not joking at all."

The child's response?

"She said, 'Mommy, you are mean!'" Sweeney says.

Another vacationer, Kim Kirsch, tells Us that "Everyone that's encountered her says she's been rude, mean and hateful."

Showing off her gratis tummy tuck (worth $5,000 to $8,000) in a bright bikini, Kate kept her distance as her kids frolicked in the water with a nanny.

Jon, meanwhile, tried to escape reality TV cameras by hanging with two female family friends in Newburgh, New York.

"He just wanted to chill," Rob Tanczos, owner of bar 26 Front Street (where Jon downed a Miller Lite beer), tells Us Weekly. When people started noticing him, "he got uncomfortable and took off."

For more on how Kate threw a "hissy fit" near her $1,807-a-night rental home (with two media rooms!), how her kids broke her rules by eating food off the ground, her strange food requests, and what Kate's high school classmates have to say about her -- pick up the newest issue of Us Weekly, on stands today.

The World's Most Powerful Celebrities

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
She's rich. She's talented. She's beautiful. And now Angelina Jolie is the most powerful celebrity in the world.

Thanks to the release of several blockbuster movies and an endless sea of media buzz, Jolie has dethroned Oprah Winfrey to top this year's Celebrity 100 list, Forbes' annual ranking of the world's ultra famous.

Jolie raked in $27 million in the past 12 months thanks to a movie schedule that included "Kung Fu Panda," "Wanted" and the not-yet-released spy thriller "Salt." Even more impressive: The publicity she garnered following the birth of her twins, as well as the consistent headlines she grabs for her philanthropic efforts and her relationship with actor Brad Pitt, who ranks No. 9 on the list.

Winfrey drops to No. 2 on the list. The media maven has pocketed $275 million in the last year, making her the list's top earner. Though viewership for her daily chat fest, "The Oprah Winfrey Show," continues to erode, her earnings remain unchanged from a year ago. In addition to Winfrey's monthly magazine, she has a three-year, $55 million deal with XM Satellite Radio. Early next year, the self-made billionaire will roll out the lifestyle-themed Oprah Winfrey Network in partnership with Discovery Communications.

In a year filled with humbling bank failures and violent stock market swings, the earning power of the 2009 Celebrity 100 remained remarkably resilient. The cumulative earnings of the 2009 list totaled $4.1 billion, up slightly from last year's $4 billion haul.

Harvey Weinstein wants to milk Summit's cow too...appears to have a crush while doing so.

Robert Pattinson May Be Trading In His Fangs For A Tommy Gun

Harvey Weinstein has been talking. He does that a lot, but this particular chatter is interesting to many of you readers because it concerns one Robert Pattinson. Us Magazine spoke with Weinstein, who revealed that RPattz is one of a number of choices to play the role of Joe Gallo in a big screen adaptation of Tom Folsom’s book, “The Mad Ones: Crazy Joe Gallo and the Revolution at the Edge of the Underworld.”

Folsom’s top pick for the role is Leonardo DiCaprio according to Weinstein, but the studio head has a special place in his heart for the “Twilight” star. “Rob Pattinson, I made him kiss girls in Cannes. He’s the most charming, wonderful young man,” Weinstein told Us. “He really cared about the charity, and that’s not an easy thing to do. That’s a sweet, sweetheart thing to do. And then we got two bids.”

For those of you who don’t know, Joey Gallo was one of the more cultured members of the Mafia during the 1960s/70s. He was often out partying with the glitterati of the time, writing poetry… generally bringing attention to himself in ways that members of organized crime families probably shouldn’t. He was also an incredibly violent, accomplished gangster who unsurprisingly met his end in dinnertime gangland shooting.

**Little info edit here you guys, Harvey said in the interview at the original source(US weekly) that James Franco was another actor he was also considering for the part. Mtv.com played Fox News and didnt put that on their article, i just noticed. He said first was leo, then was james franco and rob. So dont worry, he def wont get the part, at least not the leading one.

Taylor Lautner's 'New Moon' Heartbreak

As Jacob Black in New Moon, Taylor Lautner gets to try on being a werewolf for size. But it's not all fun and games for this buff shapeshifter in the Twilight sequel, according to Taylor.

"There is heart break and, oh it's horrible," the teen heartthrob reveals. He adds, "New Moon will rip your heart to shreds. So get ready!"

But according to Lautner, even more heart wrenching was the fact that he was freezing his rear end off during most of filming. "I was shirtless, all I was wearing was shorts. We were in 35-degree weather." Weird, cause that actually sounds kind of hot to me.

Forget east coast v west coast, the new rap ruckus is between rival cheerleaders for video games Rapstar and DJ Hero

Call it a new kind of rap beef. Eminem and Jay-Z are to face off against Kanye West, TI and Young Jeezy – not at the microphone, but as cheerleaders for rival video games.

Forget east coast v west coast, this year's turf war pits Def Jam's Rapstar against Activision's DJ Hero, both games where players rap along to their favourite songs. Though DJ Hero is primarily about spinning the decks, it has aggressively promoted its rapping component – hiring Eminem and Jay-Z as consultants on the project.

Eminem and Jay-Z also appeared together at a DJ Hero party on Monday night, performing their song Renegade. "This is a game I can see myself actually playing," Eminem told USA Today. "DJing is fundamental to rap music, so it's a great fit.

Rapstar, meanwhile, is purely focused on rapping. Overseen by hip-hop label Def Jam, the Playstation 3/Xbox game will offer an array of tracks – including Kanye West's Golddigger, TI's Whatever You Like and songs by Notorious BIG. However, Rapstar will include music from across all four major labels, not just Def Jam. Players can also record videos of their freestyles and share them online.

"It's not just about music, it's about swagger," said Lauren Wirtzer, Def Jam Interactive's vice president of marketing. Nicolas Perrett, CEO of game developer 4mm, upped the ante even further. "We're trying to make a game that appeals to ... anyone who has really enjoyed hip-hop music at any point in the last 30 years," he said.

The Popularity Of ‘Twilight’ Spurs A Vampire Revolution

Vampires are pretty popular right now. I can’t imagine why either. Can you? The overwhelming popularity of “Twilight” can be felt in every corner of entertainment these days. Vampires are officially “in,” and everyone seems to be picking up on it. Even book publishers.

Last week, MTV Splash Page’s Rick Marshall headed down to New York City’s Jacob Javits Center to hunt for scoops at the annual BookExpo America trade show. While it seems you Twilighters will be waiting a bit longer before you see a comic book rendition of Stephanie Meyer’s series, you certainly won’t be wanting for vampire-related content in the coming months.

The "Heroes" hottie looked amazing as she arrived at the W Hotel in Los Angeles, sporting a pretty white spring dress teamed with a pair of silver strappy heels.

AnnaLynne is growning on me, she's looking pretty lately. I wish she would tone down the makeup, though.

Asher Roth: Stephanie Pratt’s New Boyfriend

Stephanie Pratt likes to cause drama!

The 23-year-old reality star first rift in the family by becoming friends with Spencer’s nemesis, The Hills star Lauren Conrad.

Now she’s romantically involved with her brother’s rival, I Love College rapper Asher Roth. The two got hot and heavy at Body English in Las Vegas on April 23, partying until 5 a.m. “He had a really good night and hasn’t stopped talking about her,” a friend of Asher’s tells Life & Style. “He’ll ask Stephanie out again soon.”

That won’t go over well with Spencer, who’s preparing to launch himself into the music business as the next big white rapper and recently threw down some harsh words for Asher, also 23.

“I believe my music is more convincing and relevant,” Spencer, 25, recently said. “To me, he’s garbage. That’s why I’m a new rapper — I have substance.” The reality star also made his feelings about Ash known on his Twitter page, saying he can’t believe his sister “is hanging out with that nerd Asher Roth!”

Brad and Angelina Split Rumors 'Not True'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Don't worry about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Hollywood's hottest couple is not splitting up, their rep tells PEOPLE.

Rumors of a breakup are "not true," says the rep.

Reports surfaced Wednesday that Pitt and Jolie, who are parents to six children, were planning to make a split "official." The reports stemmed from a story in the National Enquirer.

Just last month, the couple made a glamorous appearance together on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival where Pitt's new film, Inglourious Basterds, premiered. Jolie has also been filming her upcoming movie, Salt.

Rep: Drug Test Shows Linda Hogan "Is Clean"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After Hulk Hogan and daughter Brooke both accused his ex-wife Linda of doing drugs, she decided to prove them both wrong.

"Linda Hogan responded to Hulk and Brooke Hogan's public drug test challenge by going to a medical Doctor and actually submitted to a full drug screening," her rep, Gary Smith, said in a statement to Usmagazine.com Wednesday.

He added: "After hearing of the malicious allegations, Linda immediately made arrangements to take the test first thing Monday, which was analyzed at LapCorp labs in Florida."

How did Linda -- whose daughter told celeb blogger Perez Hilton that people "have told" her that her mother does drugs -- fare with the test?

"Linda Hogan is clean, clean, clean," Smith said. "She tested negative for everything including Amphetamine (speed), Cannabinoid (marijuana), Cocaine (coke), Opiates (vicodin, morphine, heroin) and Phencyclidine(PCP)."

Still, in the in the new issue of Us Weekly (on newsstands now), Brooke says that although she hasn't witnessed her mother using, she believes she does.

"I have heard from a lot of close friends -- I mean, a lot of people -- that she does,"
the star, 20, told Us. "She has completely changed. She was always hard on me about being a good girl. For her to be so tough on me and then be this crazy-ass wild child... I just don't know who she ever really was."

In the statement to Usmagazine.com from Smith, he added:

"Linda also had a full medical exam. According to the doctors who examined her, she has even had gains in bone density and muscle mass since her last physical, which indicates a healthy lifestyle. This further disproves Hulk's and Brooke's unfounded and hurtfull allegations. Linda's drug screening shows she has no trace of any drugs in her system, legal or illegal, that includes prescription medication. Linda does not do drugs and never accused her daughter of doing drugs either. Hulk is the expert on drug use. He admits in his Rolling Stone article last month about his 30 years of abusing cocaine, marijuana and pills. Now that the truth is in black and white, all Linda wants is an apology from both of them.

"This has been a very vindictive and hurtful attempt to discredit Linda. She has opened her private medical records to disprove Brooke and Hulk's horrendous, unsupported allegations. She asks the public respect her privacy on this matter so she may begin to repair her relationship with her daughter."

But after Linda -- through her rep -- called her daughter a liar, Brooke told Us that she isn't sure if she will be able to reconcile their relationship.

"I actually dialed her phone... but she didn't answer,"
Brooke said. "I love her no matter what. I'll forgive her and I'll pray for her, but I don't think I can be around her anymore. Ever. She may as well have disowned me. She did in my heart."

Kim Kardashian has set the record straight about her relationship with beau Reggie Bush -- again.

"I am not engaged!" she blogs. "My new publicist was talking with [tabloid] Star earlier today and accidentally referred to Reggie as my fiance -- so they posted the news on their Web site.

"There have so many rumors flying around recently about Reggie and I being engaged that she assumed we were!"
Kardashian continues. "She said she gets so many wedding requests, she thought we were actually engaged."

Kardashian also debunks more gossip.

"The rumors about me picking out my ring already are also not true! I don't know where all this comes from!!" she writes.

The reality show star promises she'll tell her fans when she and Bush make it official.

"Don't worry guys, you will be the first to know if and when I get engaged!!" Kardashian blogs. "Well after I tell my family, of course!"

Captain Fine dumped Ceiling Eyes over media intrusion

Star Trek hunk Chris Pine has dumped reality TV star Audrina Patridge after reportedly tiring of the intense media attention their love connection garnered.

The actor sparked rumours he was dating The Hills star Patridge after they were spotted dining together in Los Angeles last month, weeks after meeting for the first time at the ShoWest event in Las Vegas, where they were both presented with awards.

But Pine has now called time on the relationship because he's uncomfortable with having his love life thrust into the limelight.

A source tells Us Weekly magazine, "Chris got freaked out by all the attention and pulled away.

"He's a shy guy and doesn't want to be in the spotlight."

Kelis loves her clothes, hates closets

Pop and R&B singer Kelis, known primarily for her hits "Milkshake" and "Bossy", has hopped on Twitter to express her frustrations with closeted men in a series of tweets. Check them out below:

* "I would like to talk about closet homosexuals for just a moment. Let me start by asking, why?....."
* "Gay is gay, no amount of women or fornication will change that and will honestly only make u look stupid. That's just food for thought."
* "We women do not appreciate it or even get it for that matter. We much rather just shop with u! :) closet dwellers you know who you are!"

One could speculate this is her backhanded way of outing her ex-hubby Nas, though it may just be a general complaint. Aside from that, does anyone think reinforcing the stereotype that "gay men love to pick fabulous outfits" isn't exactly the best method of encouraging men on the DL to come out?
Perhaps I'm just projecting from my own personal experiences, but I was definitely afraid to come out in high school because I suspected female friends would want me to be the Jack to their Karen. With that said, I'd totally flip a shit if Kelis took me shopping. Hell, I'd even limp my wrist and wear a rainbow thong if she asked me to. Just sayin'.</i>

You know, Gaga. We totally got off on the wrong foot. I mean sure, the shameless way in which you tore your weave straight off Teri Toye’s scalp and slipped into Róisín Murphy’s garments—which, darling, looked a little like sausage casing on you at the outset—really didn’t make me warm up to you. And then there was “Just Dance,” which sounded like the worst use of a Casio since the “Demo” button. And then came “Poker Face,” which was mildly more melodic, totally gratuitous, and promising ... until that discordant rap, at which point it was an utter failure. But then—then came “Poker Face” ... acoustic! Lives changed.

FOX To Air Ronald D. Moore’s Virtuality

“Virtuality”, from “Battlestar Galactica” mastermind Ronald D. Moore & writer Michael Taylor, was one of the most anticipated new tv shows in development last year. Unfortunately, the producing network FOX passed on picking the ambitious project up to series. However, FOX viewers will still get to see the two-hour pilot, as the network plans to broadcast it on June 26th at 8 pm ET/PT.

“Virtuality” is about the crew of the spaceship ‘Phaeton’ who are approaching a vital stage of their epic 10-year journey through outer space. With the weight of the world on their shoulders and their lives being taped for a reality show back on Earth, the pressure is intense. To keep the crew members sane, there is a virtual reality technology device installed on the ship. With the help of that particular device, the crew members can be anyone they want, anywhere at any time, despite living in a closed environment in the lonely vastness of space. Complications arise when they realize there is a glitch in the system which inflicts damage on the psyche of the crew members and unleashes a virus on the ship. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (”New Amsterdam”), Sienna Guillory (”Love Actually”) and Clea Duvall (”Carnivale”) star among others. Peter Berg (”Friday Night Lights”) directed the pilot.

Is The Shield Heading to Movie Theaters?

FX's groundbreaking cop drama The Shield came to an end in November, but could there be a future in movies for Vic Mackey?

Creator Shawn Ryan and castmembers Michael Chiklis, Walton Goggins and CCH Pounder gathered to promote their series for Emmy consideration in its final season, and there was talk of a future in features.

Could it really happen? Here's what we've learned:

When a fan asked Ryan, at the Los Angeles Times' Emmy Screening Series joint event for FX's The Shield and Sons of Anarchy presented by the Envelope, if there might be more of The Shield, Ryan replied, "There is a zero percent chance" of there being more of the TV show on FX, but if Fox hears "the fans agitate" for more, it could very well pull together a feature film.

"That is bulls--t!" declared costar Walton Goggins, whose character, Shane, came to an ignominious end in the TV series' finale.

'Coke Whore' Danielle Staub Was Also a 'Paid Escort,' According to Her Ex

Real Housewife of New Jersey and former "coke whore" Danielle Staub worked for an escort service in Miami in the late 1980s, according to an interview her ex-husband Kevin Maher gave to Star. There's lots more.

Maher, whose career as a paid informant for DEA, FBI, and NYPD was memorialized in Charles Kipps' Cop Without a Badge, sold the torrid, seedy, and exclamation-pointed story of his marriage to Staub to the tabloid weekly. Here's the good stuff:

Maher met Staub in Miami in 1986. "[She] was a paid escort with a local service, says Kevin, and claimed that she had been with numerous celebrities. She was also a 'raging nymphomaniac.'"

Spencer to Audrina: 'You're a Ho!'

First of all ... Heidi and Spencer are still in Costa Rica -- that's a fact.

Now ... Spencer Pratt is uncharacteristically pissed over Audrina Patridge's comment that she would never join "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here." Spencer just told TMZ, "Heads up, Audrina. Just because you have a one night stand with a guy who's in a movie called "Star Trek" doesn't make you a star. You're just a ho."

In case that didn't register, he said, "You're just a ho." We have to say, not very Christian from a guy who just got baptized by Stephen Baldwin.

And get this: Spencer and Heidi are telling people in Costa Rica that they never really planned to quit the show. He's saying it was all a "mental fake out to mess with the competitors."

And the best part ... Remember Heidi crying a river on the show after the wrestler stole her shampoo? Heidi is bragging to people in Costa Rica that she and QVC are going to sell 500,000 units of that shampoo as a result of the drama -- and that's just for her first appearance on the shopping show.

"Queens of the Blues" Koko Taylor dies at 80

Grammy Award-winning blues legend Koko Taylor, popularly known as the "Queens of the Blues" died on Wednesday afternoon, her spokesman said. She was 80.

Tayler died as a result of complications following a surgery on May 19 to correct a gastrointestinal bleed, Marc Lipkin, her spokesman, told BNO News. The singer passed away around 3.30 p.m. Chicago time.

Taylor, who was known worldwide as the "Queens of Blues", won her 29th Blues Music Award on May 7th, making her the recipient of more Blues Music Awards than any other artist. In 2004 she received the NEA National Heritage Fellowship Award, which is among the highest honors given to an American artist. Her most recent CD, 2007’s Old School, was nominated for a Grammy (eight of her nine Alligator albums were Grammy-nominated). She won a Grammy in 1984 for her guest appearance on the compilation album Blues Explosion on Atlantic.

Koko Taylor was one of very few women who found success in the male-dominated blues world. She took her music from the tiny clubs of Chicago’s South Side to concert halls and major festivals all over the world. She shared stages with every major blues star, including Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, B.B. King, Junior Wells and Buddy Guy as well as rock icons Robert Plant and Jimmy Page.

Taylor’s final performance was on May 7, 2009 in Memphis at the Blues Music Awards, where she sang “Wang Dang Doodle” after receiving her award for Traditional Blues Female Artist Of The Year.

Survivors include Taylor’s husband Hays Harris, daughter Joyce Threatt, son-in-law Lee Threatt, grandchildren Lee, Jr. and Wendy, and three great-grandchildren.

Marc Lipkin said funeral arrangements will be announced at a later time.

Hirsch, Hardwicke booked for 'Hamlet'

Jinks/Cohen to present classic story as suspense thriller

By Steven Zeitchik

June 2, 2009, 07:54 PM ET


Emile Hirsch (Getty Images photo)

NEW YORK -- Overture will take on the Bard -- with a twist.

The Liberty Media studio has signed up for a modern take on "Hamlet" and attached a slew of big names to pull off the task.

"Twilight" and "Thirteen" director Catherine Hardwicke is attached to direct, with Emile Hirsch, who helped conceive the idea, attached to star as the title character.

Ron Nyswaner, best known for penning Oscar winner "Philadelphia," will write the script.

"Milk" producers Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen will produce via their Jinks/Cohen banner.

The company said it is awaiting a finished script in the coming months and hopes to go into production not long after.

The new "Hamlet" will center on similar themes as the original play but will be set in contemporary America. In the new version, a young man must decide whether to kill his uncle to avenge the death of his father.

Jinks and Cohen said their "goal is to present the story as a suspense thriller. We want to make it exciting and accessible for an audience today."

Overture CEO and COO Chris McGurk and Danny Rosett noted that "with its universal themes of death, revenge, love and even teen angst -- the story of Hamlet is perhaps as timely and influential today as it was when it was written over 400 years ago."

Shakespeare has undergone a series of retellings in the past decade, with teen pic "10 Things I Hate About You," which was a retelling of "Taming of the Shrew," and Ethan Hawke starring in a Hamlet update that focused on corporate politics.

Ex-Dawson's Creek Show Runner Trashes Katie, Josh, Michelle, and James

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
No, it isn't 1998. It's just that former Dawson's Creek show runner Tom Kapinos spoke at a Los Angeles Times' Envelope Emmy screening series panel about his current show, Californication, last night, and well, he went off on his former starlets.

In talking about the genesis of Californication, Tom explained: "The idea came out of my own misery of working on Dawson's Creek. I came out here to write screenplays, and I ended up on Dawson's Creek, which was very lucrative and fun, but it was not what I wanted to do."

Tom then went on to seemingly trash Dawson's stars Katie Holmes, James Van Der Beek, Joshua Jackson and Michelle Williams. Check this craziness out...

"The experience was miserable," he continued about Dawson's. "But it was a four-year boot camp. It was like going to TV grad school and learning how to run a television show. Anybody on that show who could make a decision was allowed to run it at some point. I inherited the very awkward college years, and I almost ran the show into the ground. But I learned everything that I needed to know about how to run a show."

When the panel moderator asked, "What was it specifically that made it such a challenge?" Tom dropped this bomb: "It was the four monstrous actors at the core of it."

The audience erupted in laughter as Tom continued, saying: "They were very young, and they got very famous, and they made life miserable for any writer or producer on the show."

Her life has often appeared to be something of a freak show, but Britney Spears put her troubles behind her last night as she opened her European tour with a wonderfully theatrical concert with a Big Top theme.

Billed as The Circus Starring Britney Spears, it was a relentlessly high octane and superbly choreographed affair that delighted 23,000 fans.

The 27-year-old superstar's fortunes had appeared to be on the wane two years ago, with her singing career increasingly overshadowed by a messy divorce, a stint in rehab and a custody battle for her two young children.

Ashlee Simpson attacks Michelle Trachtenberg

Ashlee Simpson has been left shamefaced after getting into a drunken war of words with the former girlfriend of husband Pete Wentz.

According to a scoop from CelebrityRoyale.com, the drama started when Pete and Ashlee ran into Michelle Trachtenberg at the DJ Hero party at LA’s Wiltern Theater on Monday night. Michelle and her new man sat directly in front of Pete and wife Ashlee. The two couples pleasantly chatted and things were fine — and then there was a turn.

“Pete and Ashlee had a pleasant conversation with Michelle and her boyfriend for close to 20 minutes,” says a spywitness. ”Ashlee got very very drunk and she also kept making frequent bathroom trips.”

“As the evening went on and Ashlee started to get sloppier, things got out of control,” a partygoer confesses. “A loud and obnoxious Ashlee began giving her husband a lap dance. She was staring directly at Michelle and starting hurling insults at her.. She was grinding up on Pete like a stripper. It was actually pretty disgusting!”

A completely wasted Ashlee screamed at Michelle, “I hope you know, the whole time you were dating Pete, I was fucking him!”

Celebrity Royale writes: “Michelle Trachtenberg was clearly not as drunk and decided to remain classy. She said, ‘I’ve never said bad things about you. I’m happy for you guys.’ Ashlee continued to get loud and got in Michelle’s face. Finally, Mark Hoppus’s wife had to drag Ashlee away from Michelle to avoid a physical assault….”

A rep for Ashlee admits that the Melrose Place star lashed out at Michelle in her drunken stupor, but adds that she has apologized: “It was just a misunderstanding,” Ashlee’s rep claims. “Ashlee has since apologized to Michelle and they remain on good terms.”

Yes, I know. That’s hard to comprehend since the pop charts are now dominated by artists who use Auto-Tune, the software plug-in that corrects the pitch of those who can’t really cut it in the vocal department and turns their vocals into robo-voices.

*†ƒ√ MGMT is pleased to announce (finally), from an undisclosed tropical paradise, the bona fide release of the o-fficial video for the authoritative song known succinctly as: 'Kids.' This is the first song we ever wrote, on a cold day in February way back in 2003. Yes, 'Kids' is an Aquarius. But shows many traits of an Aries. The idea for the video was born about a year ago, at a mock-Italian cafe on Ninth Avenue in bustling Manhattan. We are both animated and stoked to reveal at this time that we once again worked with director Ray Tintori, someone who's known this song since its inception.

'Kids' has proven to be some kind of monster with a life of its own. Both an albatross and a plate of mac and cheese with fake bacon (Annie's), and the process of creating this video was nearly as convoluted and veiny as the general style of this here letter of introduction. As Jerry Garcia once rudely remarked about the eventual and unavoidable filling in (with sand) of the historic United States Grand Canyon, "what a long and strange trip it's been."

Without further ado, we give you:



* Thanks to Thesaurus.com for words of alikeness and interchangeability.
† yes, we are aware that Mark Twain was a satirist
ƒ yes, that is Joanna Newsom
√ no children were harmed in the making of this video"

Neil Patrick talks about the Tonys and Barney/Robin

Neil Patrick Harris will host "The 63rd Annual Tony® Awards" live from Radio City Music Hall Sunday, June 7 -- and he says he is looking to Hugh Jackman for inspiration.

"I am going to try and take a page off of Mr. Jackman's hosting duties the first season he did it. He wasn't on a ton, and didn't do a lot of performing. He just tried to make the audience feel welcome, and keep things running at a good clip," Neil tells ET.

The "How I Met Your Mother" star, who has several Broadway credits on his resume, modestly says he was surprised that he was asked to host, because he thought they would ask an A-List film star.
