Good news ladies...


Ray J’s coming back for a second season of the smash For the Love of Ray J, and he’s looking for a few good ladies. If you think you have what it takes, apply at Ray J Casting. But first read the details on the new season in the press release below:

4.2 million viewers tuned in to see Ray J pick his leading lady on the For the Love of Ray J finale episode. Cocktail was crowned the winner and all seemed great for the happy couple. We next saw them on the reunion episode where both let viewers know they were excited to see how their relationship would progress! Ray J thought he had found “the one” but unfortunately, things didn’t work out – and he’s now single again.

As viewers saw last season, dating a hip-hip star is a full-time job which includes red carpet events, the paparazzi and handling all the crazy fans. For Ray J, dating has never been an issue – it’s finding the perfect woman that can be harder than you think… especially when you’re a celebrity. Since things didn’t exactly work out with his last girlfriend, Ray J is back to give love a second chance. As R&B’s most eligible bachelor, Ray J is determined to find a woman he can settle down with.

VH1 is looking for women with confidence, personality and class that can handle the pressure of being with a superstar and turn Ray J into a one-woman man. Beginning today, viewers and fans will have the opportunity to submit themselves for consideration on For the Love of Ray J 2. Online users can log onto VH1’s For the Love of Ray J 2 casting site www.rayjcasting.com

Fashion Designer Vera Wang Headed to Dancing?

Dancing With the Stars is getting a little more fashionable.

A source tells E! News that designer Vera Wang has signed on to compete for next season's disco ball trophy...

Wang, who will be 60 by the time the next round of waltzing kicks off in the fall, rose from Vogue editor to one of the world's most famous wedding dress designers. She not only dresses celebs on the red carpet now, but she has her own home collection, plus a lower-priced clothing collection at Kohl's.

As a young girl, Wang trained as a professional figure skater. She later designed costumes for Nancy Kerrigan and Michelle Kwan. Another famous figure skater, Kristi Yamaguchi, won season six of DWTS.

A rep for Wang did not immediately comment. As is usually the case, an ABC rep declined to comment on casting.

ABC just announced today that season nine will premiere with a three-night, five-hour extravaganza on Sept. 21.

Lennon, Ono's Montreal bed-in sign to be auctioned in U.K.

A hand-written French sign reading "L'Amour Et La Paix" that was taped to the wall above John Lennon and Yoko Ono during their famous 1969 bed-in at a Montreal hotel is to be auctioned in Britain next month for up to $70,000 — a startling estimate showing how the simplest of artifacts from the couple's bizarre Canadian peace mission 40 years ago have acquired enormous value as pop culture icons.

David Carradine Sex Toy Shopping List

David Carradine went to a Los Angeles sex shop he frequented just three weeks before he died and placed a large order for clothing, toys and videos.

According to the owner of Susie's Delights in Tarzana, CA,, Carradine was a regular in the store -- shopping there a few times a month for years. The owner tells us Carradine owned almost every piece of bondage equipment in the store.

The order Carradine placed three weeks ago included women's lingerie, stockings, a few pieces of bondage equipment and three bondage DVDs. Some of the items were on back order and Carradine was supposed to come back and pick them up a few weeks later. He never did.

The owner told us when Carradine placed the order he talked to her for almost an hour, saying he was upset because he felt his wife was unhappy with him.

The photo gallery (above) includes various items the owner says Carradine purchased in the store.

Bryce Dallas Howard co-writes script, may star in it, Ron Howard may direct it.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Looking back at the original run of “Happy Days,” it was far from obvious that Ron Howard was going to end up being one of the more prolific filmmakers of our time. Now it appears that his very own daughter is trying to pull off a similar sucker punch in her career. How very “Original” of her.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal and Imagine have picked up the rights for “The Originals,” a drama written by Bryce Dallas Howard and Dane Charbeneau. Imagine will produce the project, and the senior Howard is expected to have some involvement as well.

“The Originals” focuses on a group of men and women in their twenties who are reunited for a weekend in New York after learning that their influential childhood teacher has fallen into a mysterious coma. Described as an ensemble piece, it’s likely that there’s a role in there for Bryce Dallas Howard, especially considering her status as one half of the film’s writing force. Howard was most recently seen alongside Christian Bale in “Terminator Salvation,” though we’re betting that killer cyborgs from the future weren’t involved in the “mysterious coma” so central to “The Originals” plot… though that would be awesome.

As for Howard’s father, the “Angels & Demons” director allegedly has his eye on “The Originals” as a potential directing vehicle. THR notes that dear old dad might view his daughter’s script as “a potential antidote to the huge productions for which he is known.”

Truly, “The Originals” is shaping up to be a family affair. In addition to the potential father-daughter combo package, Dallas Howard’s screenwriting partner Charbeneau is engaged to her sister, Jocelyn Howard.


I hate thinking people are so perfect, but I can't change my love for this lady.

Silverchair have been back in the studio over the last few weeks!

Daniel, Ben & Chris recently got together in a remote studio for a bit over 3 weeks to work on some new songs.

They put down a bunch of ideas & Daniel has since gone away to write and develop the songs further.

The band made a small video themselves as a little special something just for you. There are no release plans yet.

Chris Brown in drag...err...Kristinia DeBarge... talks to Seventeen Magazine

Kristinia DeBarge stopped by Seventeen's office to give us a sneak peek of her new single, "Goodbye." She also talked about her five diaries, her love for archeology, and the options for her second hit! 17: What's the concept for your "Goodbye" video?
Kristinia DeBarge: It's young, fun, and sexy. It starts off with me and my girlfriends just being mischievous. We're checking out whether my ex-boyfriend is home, because we're about to steal his car. The car in the video is a 1996 convertible Mustang, and it's red! I had to get a classic in there, since a new car is just what you'd expect. I worked out really hard to be in good shape for the video, too. My best friend is in the passenger seat with me, and everyone at the house are my friends. It gives the video more energy. And the whole thing is choreographed by Jamaica — she's worked with Keri Hilson, Ciara, and Usher.

17: When does the album come out?
KD: It's now coming out in the second week of July. We're in the process of figuring out a second single. It has to be such a monster so it has a good follow-up. There's a song called "Powerless" that I just recorded, I'm really crazy about it. There's another song I'm absolutely crazy about called "Sabotage." Then I haven't recorded this song yet, but it's called "Anti-Love," and I'm really excited about recording that.

17: Tell us a little bit about how you got started.
KD: I've been singing since I was 3 years old, and I started taking it seriously at age 12. So my dad, also a musician (he's R&B singer James DeBarge!), took me to a studio one night. We recorded a duet until 4 a.m., and when I still wanted to record another song after that, he knew I really wanted to sing professionally. I tried out for American Juniors at age 13, but was booted off after making it to the Top 20. It was actually a blessing in disguise — a lot of different producers started contacting me. After touring with my dad, I worked with Baby Face's nephew and eventually with Baby Face. I was signed to Def Jam two days before my 19th birthday, which was a great birthday present!

The Joe Jonas talk about heels and single ladies being taken down

Although doing a dance he barely knew did pose a problem for the 19-year-old, there was a bigger issue during his performance: "Heels are really hard to wear. I feel bad for every girl that has to wear heels or chooses to wear heels," he said. "They're not fun."

The video caused such a sensation that when the Jonas Brothers YouTube site went down for a few hours, fans thought that someone had put the smack-down on it. But Nick assured everyone that was not the case at all. "There was a glitch in the system, for like a couple of hours," he said. "But it was all good."

As far as Joe knows, Beyoncé and her people haven't tried to take down his homage. "It may look like it was bad, like somebody, Beyoncé, got upset, but it was all good," he said. "It's back up now."

Cover Story: Rob Tells Kristen to Choose

On June 1, the morning after their smoldering, almost-but-not-quite kiss at the MTV Movie Awards, Twilight twosome Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart stayed in a 1920s bungalow at The Charlie, a West Hollywood hotel named for onetime resident Charlie Chaplin.

Fittingly, they bunked in a cottage called the Valentino – as in Rudolph, the silent-screen romantic idol – and it made for an idyllic nest, with its two bedrooms, two baths, full kitchen and even a quaint window seat.

"They were very sweet together," an insider tells OK! of Kristen and Robert. "They were lovely."

But before the vampire saga's global fan base gets all dewy-eyed, there's a bit of a glitch: Kristen, by all accounts, is still involved with her longtime boyfriend, Michael Angarano. The results? A love triangle of Brangelinian proportions.


Clearly, somethings got to give – and insiders tell OK! that "Edward" has handed his "Bella" an ultimatum: Make up your mind, or drive a stake through it; we're done.

"Robert is completely frustrated. If Kristen isn't interested in a serious relationship, she needs to tell him so he can move on," says one source, adding that R-Patts, 23, is giving 19-year-old Kristen a couple months to sort things out while he's in NYC filming Remember Me, an indie flick about star-crossed lovers (production begins June 15).

The actor wants a resolution by the time he and Kristen reunite in Vancouver this fall to shoot Eclipse.

"He's asked her to choose between him and Michael this summer," says the source. "Robert's not willing to be strung along."

John Krasinkski & Emily Blunt Reunite in NYC

Emily Blunt has been spending most of her time filming Gulliver's Travels overseas, but she came back across the pond for a benefit gala in NYC last night. Her boyfriend John Krasinski took a break from promoting Away We Go and was also in attendance, though they didn't pose together. Long-distance relationships are always tough, but hopefully John and Emily found some time to sneak away together before their hectic schedules call them away again.

Bonnie Wright talks Rob Pattinson

At the Paris press opening last night, Bonnie Wright was interviewed by an french entertainment site where she talked about handling fame and what she thought of Twilight star Rob Pattinson:

During the evening Bonnie was rather reserved and shy towards the many journalists and their neverending questions. At the same time that’s life when you’re a star at 18. Even so, I managed to squeeze my way to her and the twins James and Oliver to ask some questions.

Hi Bonnie, what’s the effect of having so many fans at your age? Isn’t it hard to manage?

“Well, first of all, I have a lot of great people around me who help manage this part of my life. People spend a lot of time taking care of all the letters and presents that are sent to me. But it is a great thing that have to me and I must say I live a very good life even though I sometimes wish for a bit more peace and quiet and to maintain my privacy.”

Now a little fun question! What do you think about Rob Pattinson?

Sedgwick on Madoff: `We did not lose everything"

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick doing some shopping in London
Kyra Sedgwick and her actor-husband, Kevin Bacon, managed to stay out of the gossip pages until they were among the many victims of the massive Ponzi scheme run by financier Bernard Madoff.
"I think the interesting thing about it was that I always thought, `We're so boring. We should be in the tabloids more. C'mon honey, let's have a scandal,'" the 43-year-old actress said.

"Well, it wasn't the truth that we were destroyed," Sedgwick said in a recent conference call from New York. "And I think when you say `no comment,' that's, of course, where they're going to go, because it's fun and it grabs headlines and people will be more interested."

"It's been really unpleasant and makes you feel really vulnerable. But the fact of the matter is that we did not lose everything," she said. "We lost hard-earned money that we worked very hard for that was what we thought in a safe place. It's painful but a lot of people lost a lot more. And we have a lot of things to be grateful for in our life, and we never ever forget that."

Allison Iraheta Inks Record Deal, Danny Gokey Still Fails at Life

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

American Idol's resident rocker grrl is back in action.

Following in the footsteps of winner Kris Allen and Rolling Stone cover boy Adam Lambert, Allison Iraheta has inked a deal with 19 Recordings and her debut album is due out this fall.

The 17-year-old bright-redhead from Los Angeles finished fourth on the recently concluded eighth season of Idol, stopping short of the finals but winning a legion of fans with her Joplinesque pipes and beyond-her-years musicality.

"I think I'm still in shock that this is happening — getting to record my first album and this whole awesome experience is a dream come true!" Iraheta said in a statement.

Her deal, first reported by EW.com, comes ahead of what we figure is the inevitable signing by third-placer Danny Gokey to Idol creator Simon Fuller's 19 Entertainment outfit.

"There's nothing to report just yet" on the Gokey front, a 19 rep said.

While Iraheta and Allens' albums will be licensed to Jive Records, Lambert's is in affiliation with RCA. SOURCE

New Details Revealed: Jon Gosselin Cheated on Kate's Birthday

The new Us Weekly (on newsstands today) reveals shocking new details and exclusive pictures of Jon Gosselin and his mistress, as the father of 8 cheated on Kate's 34th birthday.

On that day, March 28, Jon was on a steamy, booze-filed trip to Park City, Utah, with 23-year-old school teacher Deanna Hummel (the June 1 Jon & Kate Plus 8 episode only showed him helping handicapped children ski as Kate celebrated her birthday alone with the kids on a "surprise" trip to the Ace of Cakes' kitchen).

Deanna had joined Jon at the annual Pond Skimming race at the Spring Gruv festival in Park City. (Of his trips to Utah, Jon told a local paper: "I have eight kids, two dogs and live in Pennsylvania, and I can still hang here with 15-year-olds.")

"Hey, it's Kate's birthday," Jon told a local friend, the new Us Weekly reports. "I should get her something." Despite visiting a jewelry store, the pal says Jon never followed through. Instead, he spent the day downing free Budweisers with Deanna at the event.

That night, a source says Jon and Deanna "curled up" at the Downstairs bar (co-owned by actors Chris and Danny Masterson), adding, "It was snuggle-o-matic."

As the night wore on, Jon and his hard-partying pals began "reeking of pot. I know that the kids he's hanging out with like a little herbal substance."

Jon and Deanna first met while partying at local bar Chill Lounge near his family's $1.1 million home in Wernersville, Pa. "Jon was a dirtball," Elyse Motague, the waitress Jon asked to have send Hummel a shot by way of introduction, tells the new Us Weekly.

For more on Jon's seedy behavior - including how he spent Valentine's Day buying shots for girls, TLC's staged "romantic" getaway that got canceled last minute because of Jon's affair, and Jon's appalling treatment of a babysitter - pick up the new Us Weekly today!

Shia LaBeouf Has Seen His Parents Have Sex


Shia LaBeouf covers the latest issue of Parade magazine, where writer Dotson Rader describes the 23-year-old Transformers actor as “foul-mouthed, resentful, funny, prickly, quick-witted, and charming — a package of contradictions.” Interview highlights below:

On where he gets his humor from: “[From] seeing my parents have sex, smoke weed, my mom being naked … [and] twisted R-rated humor.”

On the breakup from his longtime girlfriend China Brezner of three years: “The good actors are all screwed up. They’re all in pain. It’s a profession of bottom-feeders and heartbroken people. Maybe it was career pressure. … Maybe I chose work. Every man has those feelings of escape and survival. I know you shouldn’t be that way. I’m trying to understand it and find the answers. I don’t have them now. Why did the love of my life and I break up? … Man, I have no idea. What was that all about? I have no answers to anything. None. Why am I an alcoholic? I haven’t a damn clue! What is life about? I don’t know.”

On living his life: “Sometimes I feel I’m living a meaningless life and I get frightened. I know I’m one of the luckiest dudes in America right now. I have a great house. My parents don’t have to work. I’ve got money. I’m famous. But it could all change, man. It could go away. You never know.”

On being aware of how easy it is to be overwhelmed by a skyrocketing career: “I don’t handle fame well. Most actors on most days don’t think they’re worthy. I have no idea where this insecurity comes from, but it’s a God-sized hole. If I knew, I’d fill it, and I’d be on my way.”

FOX's full-figured dating show "More to Love" has found a full-figured host in model and author Emme.

The show, which premieres July 28, will follow a single guy "with a big waist and an even bigger heart" as he dates and pares down a field of plus-size women. Emme, who's probably the most widely recognized plus-size model on the planet, will serve as the bachelor's guide through the process.

Emme previously hosted "Fashion Emergency" on E! and has written four books, including the memoir "True Beauty," and has been an outspoken advocate for healthy lifestyles and body-image issues. She was also the first plus-size model to land a cosmetics contract when she signed with Revlon.

Her hiring as the host of "More to Love" would seem to indicate that executive producer Mike Fleiss ("The Bachelor") is sticking to his promise to give the show a positive tone and not exploit the participants.

FOX hasn't released any information on the show's participants yet.

Bat For Lashes talks Kate Bush

When Bat For Lashes -- aka Natasha Kahn's -- brilliant new album Two Suns came out in April, there wasn't a review that didn't describe her as "The New Kate Bush." In a new interview with Out magazine, she talks about the comparison, how everyone from Warhol to drag queens inspired the new album, and more.

I cut a bit for the tl;dr crowd but you can read the whole thing at the source.

Out: Every review I’ve read of Two Suns refers to you as “the new Kate Bush.” Did you grow up listening to her? Are you a fan?
Natasha Kahn: I’m definitely a fan. I think she is an amazing artist and her body of work is so incredible and she’s had such a long career and has taken so many risks. I think as someone to kind of look up to, she’s a real inspiration. People compare me to her quite a lot but on the last record it was like, “I really compare you to Bjork.” This one’s Kate Bush -- maybe next time I’ll be Nico if I play harmonium or something. [Laughs.] People kind of latch on to certain names and maybe because I am using more electronic instruments -- I don’t know why -- this one seems to be getting more Kate Bush references. But I do love her and Bjork and all those women but I hope people realize I’ve got my own thing to say as well.

Speaking of Bjork and Kate Bush -- gay audiences certainly love their unconventional female artists. Have you noticed that you have a particularly strong gay following?
It’s always the beautiful boys with the glitter on that come to the shows and make me feel really happy that they’re into in. In London, The Gay Times has been a real supporter of my work. And my cousin Jason is super gay and says all his friends just love it. For me, personally, I love that underground scene and a lot of the old documentaries, especially from New York, like Paris is Burning and Jack Smith and The Destruction of Atlantis and all these crazy performance artists that are gay and fabulous. I just love it.

I read that drag queens were a big influence on your style --
I don’t know about my style so much, but I think drag queens and fictional characters in books like Last Exit to Brooklyn I was reading when I moved to New York and Andy Warhol’s whole situation with The Factor and Velvet Underground. I love Lou Reed. I feel like the sort of subterranean cinematic characters you hear about are associated with the gay scene of fabulous strange people are really inspiring. And the makeup for Pearl, who is a character on Two Suns, I explore that really garish sort of symbolic feminine makeup like the lashes and the blonde wig, which kind of got into all that.

There's also this great short video interview with her -- she's so f-in cute I want to kidnap her and then put lowfat coolwhip on her face and then eat it:

Bret Michaels rep blasts Tony Awards following accident

Rep says more concerns would have been shown for Liza or Elton

bret michaels Pictures, Images and Photos

A rep for Poison singer Bret Michaels has issued a scathing statement in response to a comment by a Tonys spokesperson following an incident involving the rocker at Sunday night’s ceremony in New York.

Michaels was hit on the head by a descending set piece as he exited the stage, and a Tonys rep said that the incident happened because the singer had “missed his mark”.

Now Michaels’ rep Janna Elias has responded to the comment, saying that Michaels was not warned of the set piece during rehearsals, and that if it had been orElton John that was injured, that more concern would have been shown.

“After a performance by singer Bret Michaels at the Tony Awards Sunday night, he turned to exit the stage and was struck in the head by a descending half-ton stage prop, sweeping him off his feet causing contusions to his face and knocking him to the ground. Even at that point of impact, the heavy prop was still not halted and continued to descend even though Michaels remained underneath it. Witnesses state the singer moved himself out of the way just moments before the prop touched down,” the statement reads, according to antimusic.com.

"With all due respect to everyone working the Tony Awards, somewhere down the line there was a lack of communication and the prop should have been immediately halted until Michaels was clear. Sunday morning at rehearsals, Bret was never informed that the descending set piece existed, let alone would be moving into position as he was exiting the stage."

Although Bret was visibly dazed, he remained extremely calm backstage as members of Poison's road crew brought him a towel to wipe the blood from his face. His only comment at the time was, "What the hell just hit me?" The severity of this injury is not being taken lightly as symptoms from head and neck injuries at first may seem like nothing and sometimes do not present for days. At this time, the full extent of his injuries remain to be seen until all x-rays are back. I find it surprising that a Tony spokesperson would brush off this incident with a comment stating, Mr. Michaels missed his mark,' with no mention of concern for his condition. If everyone at the Tonys were aware that Bret missed his mark, then they should have been aware enough to stop the set piece from hitting him or at least slowed it down until he cleared the stage. I feel had this incident happened to , Dolly Parton or Elton John, the Tonys would have at least issued a letter of concern.”

polish gars, get your guns out

Catholics are urging the Polish government and organizers to cancel U.S. pop star Madonna's concert scheduled for Aug. 15, the Assumption of Mary feast.

Marian Brudzynski, member of the Mazowiecki regional assembly, Wednesday said Madonna "cannot sing" on the religious feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary and announced a protest committee is being organized to stop the concert.

Brudzynski, a former member of the conservative League of Polish Families party, said Catholics will do all in their power to prevent the concert from taking place. The protest committee plans to ask Interior Minister Grzegorz Schetyna to cancel the concert, he said.

Brudzynski said if they fail to stop Madonna's concert they will stage a massive picket outside and added, "We want to stifle Madonna," Poland's thenews.pl Web site reported.

Krzysztof Zagozda, of the Catholic Society organization, said the concert would hurt Poles' religious sentiment as Madonna's performances are anti-Christian.

Stanislaw Malkowski, former Warsaw Solidarity union's chaplain, said the Catholic church and the Polish nation should protest loudly against the Madonna concert.

The Late Night Ginger Is Bombing!!

WHAT'S NBCU's ZUCKER GONNA DO NOW? David Letterman Tops Conan O'Brien In Last Night's Ratings; Bring Back Leno?

Julia Roberts as a guest finally put Dave over the top in late night Tuesday night in the early Nielsen overnights following Howard Stern Monday night. They bested Conan and his guests of David Duchovny Monday night and Eddie Murphy on Tuesday night. (And Eddie rarely does talk shows anymore so that was considered a guest "get" even if his movies bomb at the box office):

June 9th
David Letterman  3.4
Conan O'Brien  2.9

June 8th
David Letterman 3.0
Conan O'Brien 3.1

This follows the plunging of Conan's Tonight Show ratings from a debut high of 7.0 on June 1st, to 5.0 on June 2nd, 4.2 on June 3rd, 3.8 on June 4th, to 3.5 on June 4th. Of course, helping Dave was the fact that, just last week, CBS has every one of the Nielsen Top 10 shows in network primetime in this period known as the summer repeat doldrums. And NBC's primetime schedule is, as usual, tanking. So no help there for Conan. It's the nightmare scenario for GE/NBC Universal that everyone but boss Jeff Zucker thought would happen: the network's cash cow The Tonight Show, once safely No. 1 in the ratings with Jay Leno as host, now can only hope to seesaw in the ratings with Letterman's Late Show.

And that's not even the all the bad news: Advertising Age reported Monday that while "NBC is touting Jay Leno's new primntime program as an innovative, DVR-proof move, buyers say the new talk show will draw fewer viewers than ABC and CBS on any given night, and are balking at paying primetime prices for what they view ads late-night ratings. 'He will guarantee NBC a third-place finish [behind ABC and CBS] in whatever hour he's in,' said Shari Ann Brill, senior VP-director of strategic audience analysis for Aegis gGroup's Carat. 'He will do on par with what he did in late night.' "

Lady Gaga shows her poker face in Japan....scares shop woman in the process

Apparently Lady Gaga has some fans in Japan, and even a few young women who seek to emulate her hideously ugly style. We can only hope that “Mezamashi TV” is just exaggerating her popularity.

Included in the clip is a scene of Gaga visiting a kimono shop. She shows up wearing some sort of goth loli outfit, which looks pretty terrible when combined with the ganguro-esque make-up she has on (the shop clerk is shocked when she takes off her sunglasses!). When she puts on a pink kimono, she feels like a “Japanese barbie.”

I'm a celeb... get me off of here! Myleene Klass has to be rescued by hotel staff after gluing herself to a bed

Myleene Klass has not found the crossover to American television quite as smooth as she might have hoped.

Her I'm A Celebrity USA presenting skills have come under attack from U.S. critics and now she's found herself in an even stickier situation.

The 31-year-old M&S favourite managed to glue herself to a bed in her hotel room in Costa Rica, where the show is being filmed - and had to be rescued by staff.

Myleene cried for help after she sprayed herself with insect repellent so strong that it reacted with the varnish on her bedposts and glued her to the frame.

'Hotel staff had to peel her off slowly but surely,' a source is quoted as telling The Sun.

The mother-of-one reportedly signed a £100,000 last-minute deal to host the show, which is currently airing on ITV2, from the Costa Rican jungle.

Megan Fox: I’m No Jennifer Aniston

Megan Fox is still adjusting to all of the attention she’s been receiving since Transformers. Here’s what she opened up to Entertainment Tonight about:

On her newfound fame: “I definitely feel ill-prepared. I mean, I don’t know if anyone ever sits back and goes, ‘Now is the moment that I think I should be a famous celebrity.’ I know I’m struggling with trying to figure out how to how to live in it — but I definitely feel it’s premature. I mean, I was in one movie that people have seen.”

On keeping herself grounded: “I see some people who have to deal with it on an everyday basis — I am not a Jennifer Aniston or a Britney Spears or even a Lindsay Lohan, you know? My pictures don’t sell for that kind of money. But [of] the small level that I do deal with it, it is hard and there have been times [when] people don’t want to hang out with me because they don’t want to end up on the Internet. I sometimes just turn around and go back home and don’t do anything and have to have someone go do my grocery shopping.”

On establishing herself in Hollywood: “I need to behave in a way and handle myself in a way that will cause people to take me seriously. You can be sexy and be intelligent and be taken seriously, or you can be sexy and you can be out at clubs every night and not be [taken seriously]. I haven’t gone completely insane — but it might happen soon.”

Pro Golfer Ken Green Injured in Car Accident, Brother, Girlfriend, and Dog are Dead.

JACKSON, Miss. (June 9) - Pro golfer Ken Green's brother and girlfriend were killed in a a recreational vehicle accident in which Green also was hurt.

Green was driving on Interstate 20 near Hickory, Miss., on Monday when the right front tire of his RV blew out. Green was unable to control the vehicle and ran off the road and down an embankment before hitting a large oak tree.
Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Jon Kalahar said Tuesday that passengers William Y. Green, of Indiantown, Fla., and Jean Marie Hodgin, of Greensboro, N.C., were killed in the wreck. William Green is Ken Green's brother and caddie. Hodgin was the golfer's girlfriend.
Kalahar said Ken Green was not wearing his seat belt. He was flown to University Medical Center in Jackson for treatment with unspecified injuries, and was listed in good condition Tuesday.
Sgt. Malachi Sanders of the Mississippi Highway Patrol said a German shepherd also was killed.
Sanders said it was unclear if the passengers were wearing seat belts. He described the embankment the RV traveled over as "a small cliff."
"The whole front of the RV was totally demolished," Sanders said.

Green, a five-time winner on the PGA Tour from Danbury, Conn., turned pro in 1980. He has played on the Champions Tour the last two seasons. His best finish this year was seventh at the AT&T Champions Classic in March.

His final years on the PGA Tour were marred by mental illness that that made it difficult for Green to concentrate while playing and led him to the verge of suicide. Now 50, Green has since spoken publicly about his ordeal.
News of the accident spread through the golf community Tuesday.
"All of us at the PGA Tour are saddened by the news of this tragic accident," PGA commissioner Tim Finchem said in a statement. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Ken Green and his family in this very difficult time.”
Malcolm McLachlan, director of the rules and competition for the Connecticut State Golf Association, and has known Green and his family for decades. They played together at the Ridgewood Country Club in Danbury where Green was a member in the 1970s.
He said Green battled his demons, but seemed to be doing well recently, making money on the Champions Tour.
"He just ran into rough times and it just kept getting worse," he said. "But he had just gotten himself a little physically and mentally better off. He made more this year than he had in the last 10 maybe. This is just terrible."


I can't imagine what it feels like to be the only survivor in a car accident, especially when the ones who didn't survive are immediate family and loved ones. Not to mention his fucking dog!

'Real World D.C.': MTV makes it official

After weeks of speculation, MTV made it official this afternoon: "The Real World" is filming its 23rd season in Washington this summer. The show will premiere in 2010, after the current season of "Real World: Cancun" fades into memory.

Eight young adults will move into a house at 20th and S streets near Dupont Circle, which is currently under construction, as it is transformed into a 24-hour TV set. In recent days, photos of the construction have been posted on several local blogs and Web sites.

"The charged atmosphere of Washington D.C., the center of our country's social and political change, will provide an electric setting for this next season of ‘The Real World,’" said Tony DiSanto, MTV's president of programming. “We are thrilled to be filming our classic franchise in the heart of where history is being made ... it adds a whole new dimension to the great characters and drama our viewers expect and love from ‘The Real World.’"

Mayor Adrian Fenty even got in on the excitement, releasing this statement: “In a time when our country has witnessed the impact and spirit of our nation’s young people, it is a pleasure to welcome MTV and ‘The Real World’ cast to the District of Columbia as they utilize the immense opportunities that the District’s backdrop will undoubtedly provide."

Tori Spelling to Jon and Kate Gosselin: 'This, too, shall pass'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In an Extra interview that'll air tonight, Tori Spelling tells host Mario Lopez that she was a huge fan of Jon & Kate Plus 8 but now, "it seems to have gone to an odd place."

"I loved the fact that they were a normal family; they weren’t in Hollywood," says Spelling, who appeared on Extra with husband Dean McDermott to promote the fourth season of their Oxygen show, Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood. "It’s hard for me now to see them on the cover of People magazine…I was like, ‘Wow, I’m not watching a celebrity family on TV. I’m actually watching a real family, and I want to know what that’s like so I can relate to that.’ So now it’s gone to a whole different level, and I feel bad for them."

Spelling then offered some advice to the Gosselins: "I hope they’re prepared for what they are going through and just know that this too shall pass…Next week, it will be someone else on the cover and you can go about your life. Good luck to them.”


Miss California Carrie Prejean to Lose Her Crown

Less than a month after being told by Donald Trump that she can keep her Miss California crown, Carrie Prejean is being fired, Foxnews.com has learned exclusively.

K2 Productions, the independent producers of the Miss California USA pageant, under license from Miss Universe, cites continued breach of contract issues as the reason for Prejean's firing. The decision is revealed in documents obtained by FOXNews.com.

"This was a business decision, based solely on contract violations," Keith Lewis, executive director of K2 Productions, said in the documents. "After our press conference in New York we had hoped we would be able to forge a better working relationship. However, since that time it has become abundantly clear that Carrie has no desire to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together.”

Prejean came under fire for her answer to a question about gay marriage two months ago in the Trump-owned Miss USA pageant, in which she was the runner-up. After the pageant, Prejean was continuously attacked as she defended her belief that gays and lesbians should not be given the right to marry in California. She became embroiled in more controversy when racy pictures of her were published that some construed as violations of her Miss California contract.

Trump came to her defense in a May 12 press conference attended by Prejean and Keith Lewis, calling her answer to the question "honest" and saying "we have determined ... that the pictures taken are fine." He allowed her to continue on as Miss California.

But it was Trump who gave the final OK to fire her, FOXNews.com has learned.

"I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California Organization and I gave her the opportunity to do so," Trump said in the same documents. "Unfortunately it just doesn’t look like it is going to happen and I offered Keith my full support in making this decision."

Representatives for K2, Prejean, and Trump were not available for immediate comment.

First runner-up Tami Farrell will assume the role and responsibilities of Miss California USA. Additionally, the Miss Universe Organization will make the reigning Miss USA, Kristen Dalton, and Miss Universe, Dayana Mendoza, available to K2 Productions to fulfill appearance requests that were declined by Prejean.

According to a source, Prejean has aspirations to write a book and pursue other opportunities, which she will be able to do now that she has been released from her duties as Miss California.


Donald Trump: Prejean Treated People Like Crap

Donald Trump just told TMZ he gave the green light to fire "biblically correct" Carrie Prejean's award-winning butt because she just wouldn't do the job and treated people badly.

Trump told us Carrie refused to appear at around 30 events on behalf of Miss California USA. He says Prejean was contractually bound to appear and she just wouldn't do it. He doesn't think her attitude has anything to do with her politics.

Trump said: "To me she was the sweetest thing. Everyone else -- she treated like s**t."


Shanna Moakler's "Faith Restored" After Carrie Prejean Loses Her Crown

One person happy with the news is former pageant director Shanna Moakler, who resigned from her post when Prejean was allowed to remain Miss California in May.

"First and foremost, my faith has been restored in the Miss Universe Organization and with Donald Trump," she tells Usmagazine.com exclusively. "I believed eventually what I intimately knew would come to fruition."

Alan Carr: 'I was lucky to get a boyfriend'

Alan Carr has admitted that he looked like a Tesco check-out assistant the night he met his boyfriend Paul.

The comedian was forced to change his outfit after spilling a drink over himself and claimed that he was not expecting to meet a potential suitor.

"I had this lovely light-blue Prada shirt and quite nice slate-grey trousers and funky shoes. As I went out, I spilt red wine down my trousers, so I thought I'd put on my other dark-grey trousers," he told Heat.

"So I left, I looked in the mirror, and I look like I work at Tesco. I thought, no-one's going to fancy me! I should be packing bags and helping get their trolley to the car!

"I was gutted, but he still liked me. And in this business it's so nice to have a plus one."

Carr added that the pair will soon be celebrating their first anniversary and have recently moved in together.

THIS is the moment rap star Dizzee Rascal fell off a stage while performing at the University of Kent last month.

The UK rap star is currently No.2 after a brief stint at No.1 in the charts with the smash-hit ‘Bonkers’.

But as you can clearly see, his overwhelming performance resulted in an embarrassing tumble.

Just seconds before, he introduces his next song called ‘Road rage’ – little did he know he was about to crash and fall.

A safety steward by the stage found it just as hilarious as everyone and Dizzee himself, who then was helped back up on to the stage.

With a smile on his face he says: “I just want to say sorry to all those people over there (that I landed on)”.

Let’s just hope ‘Bonkers’ doesn’t plummet any further down the charts too soon.

The tumble happens just after the one minute mark if you don’t want to wait!

‘Twilight’ To Be Honored At Vision Awards

Team “Twilight” assemble! The new hotness in vampire romances — sorry “Interview with the Vampire” — can’t seem to stop reaping in the accolades. There’s the five Golden Popcorns — out of seven nominations — picked up by the flick at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. And the record-setting number of Internet streams for the “New Moon” trailer, which premiered the same night.

Well you can add another one to the list, because “Twilight” will be recognized as a “film of vision” at the 36th annual Vision Awards on June 27. The Vision Awards are presented by RP International, a non-profit organization that fights the good fight against blinding eye diseases.

Bella, Edward, and the rest of the Cullen clan are in some elite company: Other film honorees this year include “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Seven Pounds,” “Valkyrie” and the upcoming “Inglourious Basterds.” There’s no word yet on how many of the cast members will actually attend the event, but here’s hoping we get a repeat performance of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s almost-kiss at the Movie Awards. Wait, that is if they induct a Best Kiss Of Vision category. Hey, it could happen!

Teresa Talking about "Bubbies"

Never exactly a retiring character, Teresa Giudice was at the center of the drama on Tuesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The mom of three — with one more child due in September — finally underwent a breast augmentation on the show after talking about her “bubbie” issues all season. Calling on a break from her busy schedule, a bubbly Giudice explained why she got plastic surgery, her issues with costar Danielle Staub and opened up about whether or not she really only pays in cash. – Brian Orloff

Why did you want to have the surgery?
Did you see the shot with the leopard bathing suit? Does that answer your question? I was confident before. The only problem I had was in bathing suits. I always had to get them padded. I liked [my breasts] being little, but after I breastfed [my three daughters], they completely went away. It’s not like I wanted big boobs or anything. I wanted to be a little bit fuller. I just did it for myself.

Did you explain it to your kids?
The little ones didn’t know what was going on but Gia, I told her, ‘Mommy breastfed all three of you. You guys took all my milk, so now mommy’s just getting the milk put back inside.’ So, she understood. I didn’t want to get into details with her. She’s a kid; she doesn’t need to know.

It seems like you all are obsessed with breasts. Are you always talking about “bubbies?”
Even before the show, we always talk about bubbies. Dina’s had them done a few times. And now she thinks they’re too big. We always give each other compliments about what we’re wearing. That’s why it always seems like we’re talking about it.

On last week’s show you had some strong opinions about Danielle’s past. How did you find out about the book and what were your concerns?
Dina and Caroline were the ones who let me know — and I was so freaked out about it. Like so freaked out because I have little ones. Mostly, I was freaking out because of the kidnapping [allegations]. I was like, “Who is this girl? She’s been around my kids.” I swear I was so freaked out. I didn’t even want to talk to her after that.

When you got the call from Steve saying he was bringing another woman to your house did you ever think of telling Danielle?
I wasn’t going to tell her because I wasn’t going to get involved. Steve was my husband’s friend. Not that I feel loyal to him or anything. I’d just rather stay out of it. Danielle’s a big girl; she can handle herself. But just one comment I’ve got to make: Getting involved with a 26-year-old and she’s 47, I mean, I think says it all.

Are you happy with how you’ve been portrayed on the show?
There’s little things here and there which, of course, I have no control over.

Care to be more specific?
About the [scene where I spent lots of] cash. That was just a small deposit. That was not $120,000 [in cash]. I don’t want people thinking I have that kind of cash. That’s ridiculous and that’s not safe anyway. And of course with the whole stage mom thing. But over time, I think people will see that it’s what Gia wants to do, and I’m just being the supportive mom. I think [Real Housewives of New York City star] Bethenny [Frankel] wrote I was living [vicariously] through Gia. I’m so not doing that — and Bethenny, mind your business. Stay on this side of the bridge!


cant wait for the finale next week!!

JUNE 10--Now that he is a ward of the California state prison system, wig-loving murderer Phil Spector has been forced to return to his au naturel state. As seen in the below mug shot, the 69-year-old Spector's dome is no longer covered by one of the fright wigs he wore during his criminal trials (the most recent of which ended in the music producer's conviction for killing actress Lana Clarkson in February 2003). Spector, who was sentenced last month to 19 years in prison, was photographed after arriving last week at the North Kern State Prison Reception Center in Delano

Peaches + Max = Publicity Stunt

Peaches Geldof's ex claims marriage was a publicity stunt

Maxwell Drummey
claims his seven-month marriage to Peaches Geldof was all a publicity stunt, the Daily Mail reports.

Drummey, guitarist with the American pop duo Chester French, says his Las Vegas nuptials to Sir Bob Geldof's daughter on August 5 of last year garnered his band "amazing publicity", and he joked that his ex-wife is actually on his payroll, stating "She's my friend for money".

The couple announced on February 7 that their marriage had amicably ended.

The Mail also reports that Drummey made reference to Chris Brown's alleged assault of Rihanna, saying: "We're guys who have been hurt by women and I'm glad people like Chris Brown are finally taking it back and hurting women."

Chester French opens for the reunited Blink-182 at GM Place on July 28.

Queen Latifah: I was sexually abused

June 10, 2009, 11:05 AM EST
Entertainment Tonight

Queen Latifah opens up in a new tell-all interview regarding her sexual abuse as a child.

Latifah said she was abused by a teenage boy who was put in charge of her. "He violated me," she tells Essence magazine. "I never told anybody; I just buried it as deeply as I could and kept people at an arm's distance. I never really let a person get too close to me. I could have been married years ago, but I had a commitment issue."

Latifah says she didn't tell anyone till the death of her brother when she was 22 years old. "I had to get it off my chest. My mother felt terrible. She was kind of a country girl, so she wasn't up on how slick people could be. When I told my dad, he said nothing," she tells the publication.

The Cover Girl says for many years she blamed herself for the sexual abuse she endured but after speaking with her therapist she came to terms with it. "I was a kid, and I had no power or control over the situation. I really wish I'd had the strength and the knowledge to say something sooner, because I always wondered, Did he do that to someone else? But I accept that the time for action has come and gone."

Producer Howard Panter says the Broadway revival of "Guys and Dolls" will fold Sunday after a run of 113 performances.

The production of the Frank Loesser (LESS'-er) musical based on a Runyon short story features Oliver Platt as the perennial gambler Nathan Detroit and Lauren Graham as his long-suffering girlfriend, Miss Adelaide.

A national tour is planned for the 2010-2011 season. Said Panter: "We're excited that audiences across the country will have the opportunity to see the greatest American musical comedy."

"Guys and Dolls" was the second production blanked at Sunday's Tony Awards to announced it was shutting. Producers of "reasons to be pretty" said Monday the play would close at the end of the week.


This sucks, I had tickets to see it in three weeks.

Leo as Spawn? hmm...

Last month, we caught up with comics veteran Todd McFarlane during the premiere of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and received some details about his plans for a new “Spawn” movie. Comparing the film to everything from “Jaws” to “The Departed,” the Spawn (and Spider-Man villain Venom) creator had a lot to say about his ambitious plans for a reboot of the “Spawn” movie universe — plans that include a very lofty goal for the film’s lead actor.

Carrie Prejean: They Asked Me to do Playboy

We just got off the phone with deposed Miss California USA Carrie Prejean -- and she says the pageant was trying to whore her out to Playboy.

Prejean claims pageant honcho Keith Lewis actually asked her last month if she would take two gigs -- appearing on "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!" and Playboy. Prejean says Lewis told her Playboy offered $140,000 for her to pose semi-nude. She rejected both offers.

A few minutes ago we talked to Lewis who said he was not pushing her to take either gig -- but merely passing the offers along. Lewis said Prejean had insisted they not turn anything down without running it by her.

Prejean -- who told us she was "shocked" at the news she was fired and learned about it only after we broke the story -- tells us she has been more than cooperative with pageant officials.

Prejean says, "What's behind this I think is a political debate. They don't agree with the stance that I took [on Prop 8]. Shanna [Moakler] is trying to bash me. They don't like me. From day one they wanted me out and they got what they wanted."

Prejean also told us she couldn't believe Donald Trump would say she treated people in the pageant "like s**t." For the record, Trump did tell Harvey Levin that on the phone earlier today. Prejean said if Trump really feels that way she's sorry, adding: "I've shown respect for every party involved, even when they haven't shown it back."

Prejean went on: "I was very respectful of people even when they slandered me and humiliated me. I have not once stooped down to their level."


David Archuleta comments on Adam Lambert's coming out

David Archuleta says he doesn't think it was a "big surprise" to hear that Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert announced he is gay. Lambert publicly said Tuesday that he is gay. Archuleta says he always "assumed" Lambert was gay and thought "everyone else did too." Archuleta was in Washington, D.C. for the Children Uniting Nation's (CUN) gala where he performed "Imagine," on the piano and "Prayer of the Children" A Cappella.

Anna Friel expresses interest in Wonder Woman role

Actress ANNA FRIEL has added her name to the list of actresses competing to portray WONDER WOMAN on the big screen.

A host of A-list ladies have been tipped to take over from 1970s TV's Wonder Woman Lynda Carter in Joss Whedon's big screen remake, including Megan Fox, Eliza Dushku and even Beyonce Knowles. And Brit Friel wants to make sure she's considered too.

The Land of The Lost star tells People magazine she's been a fan since she was a child: "Everyone wanted to be Wonder Woman. I had Wonder Woman pyjamas."

But Dushku remains the favourite for the role, after Carter endorsed her in an interview with WENN.com, stating, "Eliza would make a great Wonder Woman."

Catherine Hardwicke Hopeful to Work with Twilight Stars Again

Catherine Hardwicke Pictures, Images and Photos

Catherine Hardwicke, director of Twilight, is aiming to work with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart again in some upcoming projects –

“We’ve got ‘Maximum Ride,’ ” she said. “That’s a really wild, big-action fantasy film with bird kids. Then I have a cool project at Overture with Emile Hirsch that’s a modern retelling of ‘Hamlet’ — a very radical version. And then at Summit, we have ‘If I Stay,’ which is another really nice novel that we’re adapting.”

According to Hardwicke, she’s planning to solicit Pattinson and/or Stewart for roles in the fantasy films “Ride” and “Stay.”

Yes–you heard right–a fantasy film with bird kids–

“Maximum Ride” is based on a series of James Patterson novels telling the story of six teens who are genetically altered to become part bird and part human.

Well that oughta be interesting.

Megan Fox the new Buffy?

June 10, 2009 - Two weeks after she slammed Wonder Woman and reportedly passed on playing Lara Croft comes a rumor about another genre film that Transformers starlet Megan Fox is reportedly under consideration to star in.

Cinefools claims to have heard from an industry source that Fox is being eyed to play the title role of Buffy Summers in the recently announced big-screen relaunch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The new movie will not involve Joss Whedon or be tied in anyway to either the 1992 film or the TV series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar that followed.

We recommended Fox, along with several other young hotties, to play the vampire slayer in our recent Buffy Casting Couch column.

IGN contacted Buffy producer Roy Lee about the rumor, who said, "The rumors of Megan Fox being involved with Buffy are just rumors. As with any film project with a female lead under the age of 30, Megan is the actress that most studios want so it is no surprise her name is mentioned. While I think she would be great for our project, we are still in the early stages of developing the script."

i like megan, but bitch will never be Buffy to me


Expectant Kendra Talks Babies, Boobs and Bridal Prep

Forget about the stork. It's all about Santa Claus for Kendra Wilkinson and her football star fiancé, Hank Baskett.

As I was the first to confirm last night, the E! reality star, who turns 24 on Friday, is expecting the couple's first child.

"I'm 12 weeks along," she just said to me. "And my doctor told me I'm due on Christmas Day! We were actually trying to plan a June baby next year, but we're so happy that it's Christmas. The baby is going to be spoiled with a lot more gifts."

They actually learned a little one was on the way during a layover at an Amarillo, Texas, airport...

"Hank was like, 'Hey, why don't we do a test to see, just real quick?'" Kenrda said. "I did it and we found out and we just sat on the baggage claim as everything hit us at once."

So how did Kendra's ex-boyfriend, Playboy poobah Hugh Hefner, react? "I called Hef because I had to tell him right away," Kendra said. "He was like, 'Oh my god!' and then he cried."

It won't be Uncle Hef for the man who made her a star, but probably something a bit more commanding, Kendra joked. "Godfather!" Kendra said. "Hef will be 'The Godfather!' "

They will find out the sex of the baby in a couple of weeks. If it's a boy, the baby will be named Hank Randall Baskett IV, but they're still deciding between Arianna and Kianna for a girl. "Whatever comes out of me, we'll love," she said.

"It's something we've talked about and wanted since we met," Hank said. "Being a loving husband and father is what I've always described as the definition of a successful man."

The morning sickness has been brutal. "I've thrown up in almost every limo that has taken me out in the last week," said Kendra, whose big cravings include fruit and Top Ramen noodle soups. "God, they hate me right now."

They have no plans for cameras to capture the delivery on film for her self-titled reality show, but Hank, 26, will be in the room. And there's no way in heck Kendra is having a natural childbirth.

"I'm getting an epidural, everything they can give me," she said. "That's the one thing I'm nervous about the most. Everything else is so fun, but I have visions of my vagina tearing, and that sucks."

And with their nuptials at the Playboy Mansion just 17 days away, Kendra's wedding dress is being taken out a little bit.

"And my boobs went from big to humongous," she said. "They're making some changes in the bust."

And then she patted her belly: "Right now you can't see it, but it's there."

And yup, they're already thinking about more babies. "We definitely want another kid right away, because we want the two kids to be close in age," she said. "We want four, but you know, we are taking it one step at a time. We're concentrating on our first child and seeing where things go from there."

Possible Defense in Death of Nicke Adenhart Case

A new twist in the death of Anaheim Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart ... the woman driving the car he was in had been drinking shortly before the fatal accident.

We've learned the results of the postmortem toxicology tests on Courtney Stewart -- the driver who died in the crash along with Adenhart -- were positive for alcohol. And, law enforcement sources tell us "an illegal substance" was also found, though the sources would not be more specific.

This information could be extremely important in the defense of Andrew Gallo, the driver of the minivan that ran a light and struck the other car. Gallo was arrested for DUI and later charged with three counts of murder. We're told Gallo's lawyer is already honing in on the toxicology tests.
What a dumbass if this is all true. but i think it still doesnt excuse Gallo's actions and he still should get his ass locked up for good. I doubt the judge will side with Gallo since this was his second DUI charge.

“Nurse Jackie” Renewed Despite New York Nurse Protest

Nurse Jackie, Edie Falco’s new Showtime Original drama, has been picked up for a second season just days after its premiere — but the series is already drawing protests from one nursing group.

On Monday, the critically acclaimed show became the most-watched series premiere in Showtime history. Jackie stars Falco, the former Mafia Wife of TV’s Tony Soprano, as a pill-popping, adulterous medical professional, who engages in ethically questionable behavior at the New York City hospital where she works. This week’s series premiere was watched by approximately 1 million viewers.

However, the show has come under fire from a group of real New York nurses, who insist it portrays medical staff in a negative light. The concept has been slammed by members of the New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA), who want a disclaimer added to the end credits.

“We believe that the public’s view of nurses is influenced by TV dramas, and we have yet to see an accurate portrayal of what nurses really do,” NYSNA’s CEO Tina Gerardi wrote in a letter to Showtime this week. “It is our responsibility as the state nurses’ association to speak out on behalf of our profession, which often is misunderstood and marginalized by the media.”

Showtime, on the other hand, beliebes viewers will be able to differentiate between reality and fiction.

“This is a show of fiction, and its purpose, first and foremost, is entertainment. We are confident the viewing public will understand that and can differentiate between a work of fiction and a documentary, which this clearly is not,” reads a statement from the channel.

Britney's Security Team Hires A Body Double

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

On Monday night, the Mail understands, Britney had been invited to Beyonce's opening show at the O2, and the party afterwards.

However she apparently decided to spend the night in.

She stayed at the Mandarin Hotel where her two sons - Sean Preston, three, and Jayden-James, two - were tucked up in bed under the watchful eye of nannies by 8pm.

Miss Spears has kept an extraordinarily low profile on this trip to London, apparently on the advice of record label executives well aware that she is at the last chance saloon after her recent fall from grace.

Her security team has been so keen for her not to be photographed they have employed a lookalike to divert attention whenever Miss Spears and her family leave the hotel.


Megan Fox Talks ‘Jonah Hex,’ Reveals She's Playing a Prostitute

For obvious reasons, people are excited about the upcoming film adaptation of “Jonah Hex.” And for even more obvious reasons, men are excited to see Megan Fox’s performance in the film.

Now, the stunner is finally talking about her deadly, beautiful and mysterious femme fatale.

“That movie is gonna be amazing,” explained the “Transformers” star. “It’s a post-civil war, apocalyptic type Western. The director Jimmy [Hayward] is a lunatic, and he might be a genius. From some of the things I’ve seen him shoot, it’s a badass movie.

One of the big questions that have emerged since Fox’s on-set photos have emerged is a simple one: What character is she playing? And the answer is that it’s someone even the most die-hard fan of the comic series probably won’t remember.

“They’ve changed her name a couple of times — it’s Leila now,” Fox explained. “She is a prostitute. She’s a good ol’ working girl, and she’s a love-interest to Jonah… of sorts. I mean, it’s by no means a classic type of relationship.”

“She wasn’t really featured in the comics,” Fox said of her character. “Her name was initially Liala, and now they changed it — or it was Layla, and now they changed it to Leila. … All the women in the movie are prostitutes. … [I’m] sort of a tough, no-nonsense prostitute. Like, she’ll shoot you in the head if she has to. And she does!”

Asked if she means that literally, Fox revealed that she definitely gets to wield a handgun in the flick. “Not in the head,” she grinned. “[But I get to shoot someone] somewhere.”

Co-starring Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and Will Arnett, “Jonah Hex” hits theaters everywhere August 6, 2010.


Angelina Jolie “Refused” to Participate in Harper’s Bazaar Feature

Angelina Jolie forced Harper’s Bazaar to use its first-ever paparazzi cover shot — because she refused to participate in the the respected magazine’s recent feature on the Changeling star.

The publication earlier this week published a detailed explanation as to why Jolie, 34, is one of the world’s most desirable women. Writer Naomi Wolf was behind the piece.

But Angelina herself had no interest in taking part.

“Angelina [Jolie] refused to participate, so they went ahead and did a write-around and bought an image from a photo agency,” a source told the New York Post.

A magazine rep added, “The interest in Angelina has reached fever pitch. In a recent online poll, our readers voted overwhelmingly for Angelina as the woman they admire and most want to be, so we responded as quickly as possible.”
