Kevin Federline may be unemployed, but he still owes a ton in back taxes.
According to the Detroit News, the former Mr. Britney Spears owes more than $14,000 to the IRS, and they want him to pay up ASAP!
The IRS has slapped a lien on well fed K-Fed in the tune of $14,371.
He's currently getting $30,000 a month for child support and alimony so it's not like he doesn't have the money (or the time) to take care of the problem.
The IRS filed a $14,371 lien against his company Gooseneck Productions Inc. on May 18 in the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds office.
There is now a lien on property he may own as well as any payments he's set to receive. There goes his stripper fund!
Guess its time to dip into the Bank of Britney!
all I have to say is- lol
Blogger Perez Hilton and Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.I.Am are already embroiled in a war of words over a fracas following Canada's MuchMusic Video Awards last night. Now the lawyers are getting involved.
Bryan Freedman, whose aggressive representation of Hilton (aka Mario Lavandeira) has resulted in a few recent court victories against paparazzi agencies and others, is threatening Will.I.Am with legal action if he is found to have assaulted the blogger or encouraged manager Polo Molino to do so.
"Perez will take legal action against anyone who chooses to resort to physical violence as a means to respond to criticism they do not like," Freedman writes us in an email. "It is my understanding that criminal assault charges have been filed against the band’s manager, Polo Molino, and we are conducting a legal investigation as to whether Will.I.Am encouraged and/or instructed Molino to engage in this physical assault."
Hilton took to Twitter and an expletive-laden video posted on his website today to lash out at Will.I.Am and posse for allegedly tracking down the blogger at an MMVA afterparty. Hilton was allegedly punched in the eye. Will.I.Am claimed in his own video that it was a fan that struck Hilton. But Freedman sounds skeptical.
"Rest assured that anyone who physically assaults Perez Hilton or encourages others to do so because they cannot handle a little criticism will be sued as quickly as I can type," he writes. "His first amendment rights will not be infringed upon through fear, intimidation or violence."
COME AT ME, BITCH!

"On Thursday, two photographs were aired on our prime time news report and on Friday we apologised," said Eddy Luis Franco, the news director for the privately-owned PAT television station.
The photographs showed the interior of an aircraft.
In the first one, passengers are seen using oxygen masks to counter the effects of loss of cabin pressure, and in the second a passenger is shown being sucked out of the rear of the aircraft as its tail breaks off.
"These two photos were apparently taken by one of the passengers on the airliner the instant before the collision and after the aircraft crashed," the news presenter said in airing the images.
She said the photographs were recovered from the memory of a digital camera that belong to a passenger called "Paulo Muller," a Brazilian actor.
Mr Franco said the photographs came to the station via the internet.
Lost a series produced by ABC Studios and Bad Robot Productions, tells the story of survivors of an air crash in a mysterious island in the Pacific.

Here's a pleasant change from seeing your average celebrity gushing over a video game: seeing a celebrity troll on the Wii.
Seems that while Shia LaBeouf - the star/destroyer of both the Transformers and Indiana Jones franchises - is a big-time gamer, he's only a big-time gamer on the 360 and PS3. Which he seems to quite enjoy. When it comes to the Wii, however...things get trollish.
Speaking with Big Download, he says:
(BD) Have you checked out the Wii Transformers game?
(SL) I haven't been able to play the Wii game because my hand is broken. I've just been playing Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. I would imagine that the Wii experience will be like...I don't mess with the Wii, to be honest with you. It's kind of an amateur console. I'm not into the Wii thing.
(BD)What's wrong with the Wii?
(SL)This is how in a simple way you can find out if it's a gamer you want to play with. Ask them if they have a Wii. If they say yes, get the f*** out of there.
He later follows that up with "Who wants to play the Wii version of LEGO Star Wars. I'd rather eat glass.". Even though the Wii version is, well, for all intents and purposes identical to the other ones.
Bet Activision and Krome Studios, the people behind the Wii version of the upcoming Transformers game, are just delighted with his promotional abilities..( Collapse )
stfu, just because you own a wii doesn't make you an amateur gamer.
I met Taylor Hicks today and it was a rather disappointing experience. I'm a big fan of American Idol, and I made it a personal goal of mine to meet the top 10 of every season -- a goal that I don't really expect to achieve, but it's worth a try. Anywho - Taylor Hicks is in Detroit right now for something like three whole weeks in the touring production of Grease. Why on earth there's such a demand for Grease in Detroit is really beyond me, but that's besides the point. Today Taylor had a show at a small concert hall to promote his new CD (that no one cares about), so I decided to give him my time of day. Well, I don't know if it was really worth it. The guy is a douche. Here's what went down.
I waited for something like two whole hours to meet him (which I believe anyone would think is a long ass time for Taylor Hicks) and when he finally showed up at the concert venue he was mostly a douche to me. He pulled up in a large black limo van thing with his band, and when he hoped out, I approached him politely (mind you, I was the ONLY person there waiting for him) and asked him for his autograph. Without even saying hi, he looked at me snidely and asked me, "Do you have a black pen?" and for the first time in my entire life while meeting a celebrity, I did not. I only had a blue sharpee. (I should have known better. Blue sharpees are used by every autograph seller/collector because I believe they last longer than any other color... I know this, but I couldn't find a black one and I really couldn't be bothered to go out and buy another one for him to use.) So obviously he thought I was an eBay-er or whatever. I responded to him by saying, "Uh (a long UH mind you), I have a blue one!" He did NOT want to sign any autographs for me with my horrible blue sharpee. He muttered something like "Oh, I need a black pen." He asked some guy that was with him if he had a black pen, and the guy did, so luckily for me, he agreed to sign my stuff. I had a copy of his debut CD, an old Entertainment Weekly from 2006 with him on it and this People Magazine book that was released in 2007 that documented all the seasons of American Idol up to that point. I'm an actual American Idol fan, and I don't totally hate Taylor Hicks like the rest of the world (well maybe now) so he really had no reason to immediately believe I was going to sell his signature. As if anyone would freakin' buy it anyway! So he starts signing my stuff, and I notice that the sharpee he's using is SHIT. It's old and dried out, and he's doing a quick, shit job of signing my stuff. He basically ruined everything that he signed for me. I'm so annoyed and disappointed by that. While he was signing I told him that I'd been waiting for over two hours, and tried to make small talk - which he completely ignored. It was awkward. After he signed my stuff, which took something like 2 seconds because he did such a fast, shit job he started walking away and tried to give me the sharpee back. I was like, "Um, that's not mine." I WANTED to say something like "Did you just fucking forget all that black sharpee drama that you just caused??" I quickly pulled out my camera and asked if I could take a picture with him. He hesitated, said "um" for like 3 seconds, looked at the guy that was with him - it was CLEAR he didn't want to do it - so I said PLEEEASEE and he was like, OK, sure. So I barely got the picture with him! I said "Thank you so much! It was great to meet you!" and he replied with a "yeah" as he quickly walked away.
DOUCHE BAG ALERT! So he wasn't a COMPLETE douche, but he was like 85% douche. he *did* sign autographs for me, but they were complete shit and he basically ruined my things (which i PAID for mind you), and he DID pose for a picture with me but trust me he did NOT want to. What a douche bag! So not cool Taylor Hicks, so not cool. I made a cute ONTD sign that I wanted him to hold but I did not even bother to ask him because of all the douche that was radiating from his 50 year old ass. So instead of throwing the nice sign away, I photographed myself with it. I didn't want it to go to waste!
So there you have it ONTD ! Stay clear of Taylor Hicks - he's really not worth your time.

Oprah Winfrey splurges 500,000 pounds for staff holiday
Chat show queen Oprah Winfrey showed her generous side by taking her staff and their families on an all expenses paid 10-day cruise trip around the Mediterranean.
The travel experts said that the cruise would cost the TV personality some 500,000 pounds.
The billionaire chat show host employs more than 100 people at her Chicago based TV production company which recently featured an interview with the parents of missing toddler Madeleine McCann, Daily Mail online reported.
Winfrey, who has a personal fortune estimated at over 1.5 billion pounds and an annual income of over 200 million pounds is know for her generosity.
The 55-year-old media mogul will reportedly join her staff on the cruise which will stop in Italy, Turkey, Greece and Malta.
Four years ago Winfrey had arranged a similar trip to Hawaii for all her staff and agreed to pick up the bill.

Moments after Jon and Kate Gosselin officially announced on their reality show that they were separating, RadarOnline.com sat down with Kate's brother Kevin and his wife Jodi at their home in Elizabethtown, PA.
In our exclusive interview, Kevin expresses outrage that Jon and Kate would separate on national television! He worries that the pain of their pending divorce will be enough for their eight children to endure, without the world knowing every detail of their family's personal struggles.
Said Kevin: "We're just so heartbroken and sad about the announcement they made... an announcement that could be so life-shattering for a young child. It was used to gain ratings without any regard for my nieces and nephews."
Jodi added: "It was the saddest thing to witness. This is family. We lived a life with Jon and Kate for years and we've developed really close relationships
with each of the kids, and to know that this is being viewed by millions and used as a ratings booster. It's horrible.. It's horrible."
Still, Kevin and Jodi are holding out hope that Jon and Kate could still reconcile someday.

Jon Voight: My Daughter Is Sexy!...Now Let Me Go Sit With Joe Simpson..
Angelina Jolie's dad sees the similarities between his daughter and Megan Fox.
"Well, they are both very beautiful women, and they are both sexy gals, you know," Jon Voight told Usmagazine.com at the L.A. premiere of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Monday.
"And they're both in action pictures now," he went on. Jolie's thriller Salt hits theaters next summer.
Still, Voight thinks "everybody is unique.
"We are all so different from one another that we can't be compared -- but they are very attractive girls," he continued.
Fox, 23, and Jolie, 34, have a similar career trajectory, according to the action flick's director, Michael Bay.
"The truth is I gave Angelina her first job on a music video. It was a Meat Loaf video, years back [1994's "Rock 'n' Roll Dreams Come Through"]," Bay told Us. "That was her very first job. And I gave Megan Fox her very first job."
Fox -- who told Us she's "never met" the mom of six -- has insisted she's nothing like Jolie.
"Because I have tattoos and dark hair and I was in an action movie? That's as far as the similarities extend," she said earlier this month. "I'm not the next anyone."

The Broderick-Parker Princesses Have Arrived
Mazel Tov !
Sources close to East Ohio Regional Hospital in Martins Ferry confirm for CBS News that the surrogate mother for Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick gave birth to twins this morning.
CBS news in Martins Ferry, Ohio are reporting that the twin girls of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick have arrived.
Sources tell WTRF Reporter Dave Elias that Parker and Broderick are at the hospital with the surrogate.
We are also learning that Parker and Broderick are expected to make some type of announcement before they leave the hospital.
However, Hospital Spokesperson Maggie Espina would not confirm or deny our reports. She would only say that the hospital has no comment at this time.
Security at the hospital is tight this morning. We're told additional guards have been brought in and even more are on standby, if needed, as this story is expected to get national attention.
All of this comes on the heels of an investigation that centers on the Martins Ferry Police Chief and nearby Chief Chad Dojack who allegedly conspired to break into the home belonging to surrogate mother and allegedly take pictures of plaster paris mold the woman had made outlining her pregnant stomach.
Harrison County Prosecutor Shawn Hervey tells WTRF that the investigation is still ongoing.
CBS has confirmed that BCI officials will be in town on Wednesday talking with more police officers who may have had knowledge about the event.

All that Perez Hilton shit nauseated my Monday. Forget about his turning assault into a plea for attention -- that's to be expected from someone who comes off like a Garbage Pail Kid translation of Madonna (as if there weren't one already). It's the "faggot" thing that bothers me. For all his complaining about being socked in the face, he shot himself in the foot before that even could happen. This fool, who's given a national platform for no particular reason beyond serendipity, goes and hurdles that word at another person as if it's something to be ashamed of. This, coming from someone who turned Carrie Prejean's worth-ignoring ignorance into would-be crusade for gay rights. This, coming after that crusade resulted in a showcase for his inarticulation and inability to win an argument with even a complete idiot who equated not welcoming girls to the Boy Scouts with not allowing gays to marry. That shit drove me crazy because he seemed oblivious to the obvious points (like something as basic as, hey, our values can change as a society as we learn more, particularly about the nature of homosexuality). I didn't write about it, nor have I written much about him in general (despite the very pronounced feeling of bile flooding into my mouth that he regularly produces), because if you say something disparaging about someone who has the same job as you and who's infinitely more successful (numbers-wise, I mean), you end up looking jealous, or at least of dubious motivation.
But I don't care about that at this point, because I couldn't be less jealous of him especially given the current circumstances. I just kind of want to throw up my hands (or in my hands) and call out this character, this persona, this online half-person for what it is: bad for the Internet, bad for gay people, bad for the world. I can't help but feel like everything would be better off without him.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is being sued for plagiarism and copyright infringement. Author Sue Hassett claims that Hasselbeck's book, The G Free Diet-A Gluten Free Survival Guide, rips off Hassett's book, Living with Celiac Disease, which she sent to Hasselbeck last year.
Hassett says she sent a copy of her book to Hasselbeck in April of 2008, via certified mail, but never received any acknowledgment from The View co-host. In May 2009, Hasselbeck published her own book about Celiac disease, that was eerily similar to Hassett's, even down to chapter titles. Before the suit was filed, a letter was sent to Hasselbeck by Hassett's attorney enumerating many—but not all—of the similarities. Some are:
"[S]ometimes manufactures [sic] will change the starch in a product and not change the label on the product or the label on the box that…Call the company and ask for it in writing again and again and again if you have to."
"Call Back Periodically...Call back every so often to make sure any once questionable foods are still gluten-free. Companies frequently change their manufacturing sites or acquire a new brand without altering their product labels."
"Some spices have a starch put in so it does not stick together you must find out where the starch is derived. Is the starch from corn or wheat?"
"Spices: Beware the anticlumping agents added to many commercial herbs and seasonings—they almost always use gluten."
"A person with celiac disease should only shop in the outer isles of the supermarket. The reason being the only thing down the other isles is things you can't have."
"The foods in the outer isles of the supermarket should be the foundation of your diet…"

Jon & Kate are taking a break!
TLC's hit reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8" is taking a production break after the couple said on Monday night's show that they were separating.
The show, which follows the lives of Jon and Kate Gosselin and their brood, has become a pop culture sensation, getting TLC its best ratings ever and providing the tabloids with a steady diet of gossip. The couple have been on more than 40 magazine covers over the last two months including seven in a row on US Magazine.
TLC said next Monday would be a clip package with some new footage, but that the next all-new episode would be on Aug. 3. People close to the show say the desire to take a production break came from the network.
So far, six new episodes of the show's 40-episode order have aired. The premiere episode drew almost 10 million viewers and the show is still doing better than it had in its previous four seasons. It has also boosted the ratings of TLC's new show "Cake Boss."
Because of all the turmoil in the Gosselin's marriage, TLC does not have enough footage to put together new episodes right now as its production schedule had become very last minute. Episodes this season were often completed as late as the day of airing.
thats good the show is taking a break
Perez Hilton Responds to GLAAD
After being chided by GLAAD for using an anti-gay slur during a confrontation with Black Eyed Peas' member will.i.am, blogger Perez Hilton is speaking out against the organization.
"I am saddened GLAAD chose to victimize me further by criticizing me for how I non-violently dealt with a very scary situation that, unfortunately, turned violent. While I doubt I will get an apology from GLAAD, nor do I expect one, I would just hope people know how difficult it is to intellectualize a situation and think rationally when a thug disguised as a musician is screaming at your face and intimidating you. I am just very fortunate and grateful that nothing more serious happened to me."
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN fears he will never be able to impress his teenage children - as his kids find his rock star status "embarrassing."
The Boss has three kids with wife Patti Scialfa - Evan, 18, Jessica, 17 and 15-year-old Sam.
Springsteen admits he faces the same challenges as any parent with teenage offspring - and he's convinced his fame only compounds the misery for the youngsters.
He says, "One day they'll say, 'Man, you rock,' then another day they'll say, 'You're embarrassing me! Don't drop me off here. I don't want people to see you. Please don't come in the room.'
"I think we more often play the role of embarrassing parents than cool ones."
I am not a PC person. Those who know me in real life will attest that if an off-color, offensive or wildly juvenile joke needs to be made it'll likely be me making it. I think people are too sensitive in the modern world, and I don't think any topic is off-limits when it comes to laughs.
That said, even I was stupefied by what I saw in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Twins. These new robots, who begin the film conjoined as a shitty old ice cream truck but who soon get upgraded into Chevy concept cars, seem to be the most extreme racial caricatures seen in a movie in decades.

TV show helps Utah boy survive night solo in woods
By ELIZABETH WHITE, Associated Press Writer Elizabeth White, Associated Press Writer
SALT LAKE CITY – When he realized he'd been separated from his family on a weekend hike in a northern Utah forest, 9-year-old Grayson Wynne's thoughts turned to television.
Grayson watches "Man vs. Wild" on the Discovery Channel every week with his brothers and his dad. On the show, host and adventurer Bear Grylls strands himself in the wilderness and then shows viewers how to survive the sticky situations.
That's where Grayson says he learned to leave clues behind to help searchers find him.
On Saturday, when he was scared and alone in the Ashley National Forest, Grayson started tearing up his yellow rain slicker, despite the intermittent downpours, and tying pieces to trees.
"I just used my hands," said Grayson, who was found safe Sunday after spending 18 hours lost in the forest. "I don't know how many times I tore the thing but quite a lot."
Grayson was among a party of about 15 family members that left Saturday from the Spirit Lake trailhead in Daggett County. The group stopped to tighten a saddle on a horse at some point, said Grayson's dad, Kynan Wynne. But Grayson didn't realize it and went ahead of the pack before diverting onto a smaller trail in the thick forest.
Although Kynan Wynne was concerned for his son's safety, he was also confident in the boy's resilience.
"Somewhere he got the idea that for multiple reasons, not just for people to find you, but to retrace your steps if you have to, to leave a trail," Kynan Wynne said.
Grayson created a small shelter overnight under a fallen tree. The next day, he decided to follow a creek in hopes of finding help.
"I (thought I) might find the lake, that there might be somebody at the lake," he said.
Grayson, who will start fourth grade in the fall, also left a couple of clues for searchers that he didn't mean to.
He dropped a granola bar wrapper about 300 yards off the main trail. Searchers also found a small footprint and a backpack about 400 yards from the wrapper.
"I was just being pretty stupid that I dropped the backpack," Grayson said. "I was just panicking too much."
When Grayson heard a helicopter overhead, he ran into a meadow and waved the last piece of his jacket. But two searchers on horseback saw him first.
"It was such a good feeling that I was going to be all right," said Grayson, who got back to normal Monday by playing in a Little League double-header.
When he was reunited with his father, Grayson's first words were "Happy Father's Day."
The Daggett County sheriff's office credited the searchers, volunteers and Grayson's common sense for the positive outcome.
"The thing that he recognized from the show, regardless of the circumstances you're in, you are capable of surviving," Kynan Wynne said.
um, ok, GRAYSON WYYNE?? Like Dick Grayson aka Robin the First aka Batman the Second and Wyyne like Bruce Wayne??
No wonder this kid survived! HE'S SECRETLY A BAT(PERSON). That or his daddy is a grade-A nerd. :D
oh, and more nekkid Bear plz.

Audrina Patridge chows down on a juicy cheeseburger in a new ad for Carl's Jr.
The Hills star rolls around the beach in a gold string bikini while eating the 660-calorie Teriyaki burger, which features grilled pineapple.
"To look this hot in a bikini, I gotta eat a lot of fruit, especially when it's on a big, juicy burger," says the tan reality actress, 24, in one spot. In the second segment, she says: "To look this good in a bikini, I gotta give up like everything. But there's no way I'm giving up that Teriyaki burger. I'm totally obsessed. I have to be a little bad."
Patridge shot the spot on a beach in Malibu last August.

Chris Pine picks up a copy of The New York Times in Los Angeles.
The 28-year-old third-generation actor recently expressed how he feels about getting the chance to work with two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington in the upcoming movie Unstoppable.
Chris says, “I don’t ever want to be so precious to eschew those kinds of roles because I’m on some mission to be the artiste in Hollywood. But I think there’s a closeted Peter Lorre inside me that loves to play the fun, darker, weirder roles that hopefully I’ll get the chance to play as I move ahead in my career.” (Lorre starred in popular Hollywood crime films and mysteries, notably alongside Humphrey Bogart and Sydney Greenstreet.)

Hopefully, the police won't be making a surprise appearance, as they've done at her L.A. pad lately.
Yesterday morning around 4 a.m., cops cited LiLo for excessive noise. This wasn't the first time she's been told to quiet down...
The night Linds was hanging with Ryan Seacrest, X17 reports that police came to her crib around 3:30 a.m. after neighbors complained about loud music.
We doubt any Vegas cops will rain on LiLo's party parade this weekend!
EXCLUSIVE: Chicago Waiter "Delighted" Over $4,000 Tip From Johnny Depp
The waiter who received a $4000 tip from Johnny Depp has told RadarOnline.com about his night with the superstar!
Mohammed A . Sekhani -- a veteran waiter at Chicago's legendary steakhouse Gibsons -- told RadarOnline.com: “Johnny and his party arrived just after 11.30pm at the restaurant and requested a private room. He had visited our restaurant several times before while he was filming Public Enemies and he promised me that he would return after the premiere."
Sekhani says Depp and his party ordered appetizers like shrimp cocktails while they prepared his favorite dish Clams Casino – which is clams baked with garlic, pepper and cheese.
Said Sekhani : “He also ordered some $500 bottles of Italian wine and he was in good spirits throughout the evening chatting with Mr Mann and Miss Cotillard. I have worked with a lot of stars like Sean Connery and Robert De Niro but Johnny Depp is my favorite. He is a very soft spoken guy who is very charming and sweet – when I wait for him he doesn’t like to be too fussed over and is not in any way demanding. "
It's not the first time Sekhani has waited on Depp. “Because he had visited us before he calls me ‘Mo’ and I know exactly the way he likes to be treated. He may be one of the most famous actors in the world but he is a very ‘humble guy’ and a really cool dude. Obviously, I was delighted with his tip but he has always been very generous every time that he has visited us here at Gibsons. When the party left around 2.30am he smiled and told me that he would return – they were a great group of people.”
ANGELINA Jolie is thinking of turning her attention to politics with a view to ending up in the White House, it has been revealed.
The actress, a UN goodwill ambassador for the past eight years, has become increasingly focused on humanitarian work and is said to be keen to make the leap into politics.
Her recent 34th birthday has caused her to take stock and Angelina has been telling friends she wants to get even more involved in making a difference in the world.
She is considering following fellow actors Arnold Schwarzenegger into politics and Ronald Reagan into the White House.
Although an admirer of new US President Barack Obama she has never officially come out as a Republican or Democrat.
A friend said: “Ange has admitted she’s getting bored with Hollywood. She said she’s now got her sights set on Washington.
“She is passionate about people’s rights, war and justice and thinks she can get more hands-on and make even more of a difference by getting into politics. She admires Obama and thinks she could make a big difference too if she were in his position.”
Angelina, who just recently dethroned Oprah Winfrey as the world’s most powerful celebrity in a list compiled by Forbes magazine, has six adopted and biological children with partner Brad Pitt.
She has been filming new action movie Salt for the past couple of months but finds herself ever more drawn to the political arena.
She recently wrote an article for Time magazine expressing outrage over the conflict in Darfur and gave an emotional address for World Refugee Day last week.
Her duties as a UN goodwill ambassador have seen her travel the world highlighting the plight of refugees and victims of war and poverty.
The friend continues: “I would place a huge wager on her becoming the first female president in the next 20 years. When Ange sets her mind on something, she goes all out to do it.
“She’s very determined and gets very stirred by her UN work.
“She is well respected for her humanitarian work and I’m sure she would make as many waves if she moved fully into the political world.”

FHM readers aren’t the only ones with a love jones for actress Megan Fox. Reality starlet Kim Kardashian has admitted that she has a major “girl crush” on her fellow brunette beauty.
“I’m totally a Megan Fox fan. That’s really the only reason I’m here,” Kim told Entertainment Tonight as she walked the red carpet with her boyfriend Reggie Bush at Monday’s premiere of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
“Megan Fox is so hot. She is like my girl crush and I don’t have girl crushes. She’s probably his girl crush too,” she said pointing to Reggie.
Fox was recently crowned FHM Magazine’s “Sexiest Woman In The World” for the second year in a row.

Zac Efron has signed to star in an untitled thriller for Mandate Pictures, which is being written by Leslie Dixon.
The plot is being kept under wraps but it is described as "a sexy thriller." The deal continues the evolution of Efron from the teen heartthrob of the "High School Musical" franchise to a more mature leading man, and also sees him stepping into producing shoes. He will act as executive producer with Mandate's Nathan Kahane.
Frequent Mandate collaborator Greg Shapiro of Kingsgate Films ("The Hurt Locker"), Jason Barrett, and Dixon will produce.
Nicole Brown will oversee the project for Mandate.
Efron and Dixon, a respected veteran writer whose credits include 1999's "The Thomas Crown Affair and "Freaky Friday," first worked together on "Hairspray."
No director is on board.
Efron, repped by CAA and Alchemy Entertainment, last starred in New Line's teen comedy "17 Again," which grossed almost $63 million domestically. Dixon is repped by CAA.
Marion Cotillard visited The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Monday, June 22nd to promote her new movie, Public Enemies.

A few of us were discussing this in one of the Real Housewives posts last week(thanks to aurosan for the reminder which post it was, discussion here)
the poor kids don't deserve any of this :(
Jon & Kate plus their big announcement on Monday drew a whopping audience of 10.6 million total viewers — setting a new all-time high for not only the hiatus-bound series but for TLC as a whole. Week-to-week, the series enjoyed a 365 percent gain.
Jon & Kate Plus 8 will go on hiatus until August following the Gosselins' separation announcement on Monday's episode, TLC said in a statement.
"TLC continues to support the Gosselin family and will work closely with them to determine the best way to continue to tell their story as they navigate through this difficult time," the statement read.
The network said Monday's upcoming episode will be a retrospective clip show on Jon and Kate's 10-year marriage. The next new episode will air Aug. 3.
"During this time the family will take some time off to regroup and then a modified schedule will be in place to support the family's transition," the statement concluded.
TLC ordered 40 episodes for the season — the series' fifth — but only six have aired.
I admit I watched last night but this show really should take a permanent hiatus. Tbh, I think Kate > Jon but the kids > than both of them combined. Oh, and Aunt Jodi and her hubby are stupid famewhores. Family that truly cared about you wouldn't go right to the gossip columns
It wasn't all fun and games for Shia LaBeouf during last night's Los Angeles premiere of Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen.
MTV put Shia to work having him shoot some intros for in which he introduces the after-party band Linkin Park.
Celebuzz was able to capture Shia's outtakes on camera as he read from the cue cards.
Can't blame him for being nervous, last night was kind of a big deal.
What's your reaction to the media scapegoating? I imagine the incident with the eighth grader brought a barrage of calls, letters, emails, etc. What was your initial reaction to the story?
Initial reaction: Where did he get the gun… and why can't I get one? It's shocking to me that it's easier to buy a gun at Wal-Mart than it is to buy my record.

Nick Jonas already met Sasha and Malia Obama on the first night they were in the White House – but on Tuesday the pop star got to meet their dad, too.
"I'm excited," Jonas, wearing a tailored gray suit, told PEOPLE on his way to the White House where he planned to pay a visit to President Barack Obama and a group of kids who live with diabetes. "This is the first time I'm meeting the president. It's gonna be fun."
But the singer's Washington, D.C., trip is not all glitz and glamour. The 16-year-old, who played at the Kids' Inaugural Ball after the November election, is taking a detour from his Jonas Brothers tour to testify Wednesday at a Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee hearing on government funding for diabetes research, as are Sugar Ray Leonard and Mary Tyler Moore.
"It's amazing [to meet them]. They're, like, household names," says Jonas, who was diagnosed with diabetes at age 13 and who works with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Passed SecurityStill, even a household name like Nick Jonas had to show the Secret Service his passport before being admitted onto the White House grounds. Nick's appearance Wednesday was a surprise to the diabetic children meeting the President. And many kids seemed more excited to meet him than Obama.
Leaving the White House, kids screamed, "Nick Jonas! Nick Jonas! We got to meet Nick Jonas!!!" and showed off autographs.
"That's cool," says Jonas, who shook everybody's hand and briefly met the president.
"It was great," he told PEOPLE outside the Executive Mansion. "He came up and thanked me for meeting his daughters and playing for them. I said, 'It's a pleasure to meet you.' He said, 'It's a pleasure to meet you, too.' Then we took a picture with about 100 kids."
So did Nick's dad get to talk to the president, too? "Nope," says Kevin Jonas, Sr. "I just watched as a proud Dad."
On Tuesday afternoon, Jonas plans to tour Capitol Hill and meet with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi before testifying before the Senate Wednesday.
She is a beautiful, amazing, full figured style and personality icon.

Kate Gosselin is still wearing her wedding ring, despite announcing her split from Jon on last night's Jon & Kate Plus 8.
The mom of eight, 34, was all smiles as she ran errands -- a 180 from her teary appearance on her TLC reality show.
Kate serviced her brand new Toyota Land Cruiser -- suggested retail: $64,755 -- at the dealership, and then grabbed gas before returning to the family's $1.1-million home in Wernersville, Pa. She spent about an hour out and about.
"Considering they are now getting divorced, Kate seemed quite upbeat," a witness tells Usmagazine.com. "She was laughing and smiling with her bodyguard as she chatted to staff at the car showroom and the gas station."
"It almost looked like the divorce announcement has taken a huge burden off her shoulders and everything is finally out there in the open," the witness goes on. "Kate seemed totally relaxed and was texting on her phone and answering calls from friends."
Kate dressed incognito in a floppy hat and oversized sunglasses.
Meanwhile, Jon played with their kids in the garden of their estate. He was back inside by the time Kate returned.
"They weren't all out in the garden as a family like they have been in the past," the witness says. "It seems like Jon doesn't want to be anywhere near Kate at the moment.''
On Tuesday, TLC announced the show was going on hiatus until August. Only six of the planned 40-episode season have aired.
The Gosselins filed paperwork to initiate a legal separation in Bucks County, Pa. Monday -- 10 days after their 10th wedding anniversary.

Just two days after announcing that he and girlfriend Camila Alves are expecting their second child, Matthew McConaughey spoke publicly about it at the “National Conference on Volunteers and Service” yesterday (June 22).
The “Ghost of Girlfriends Past” hottie was in San Francisco promoting the foundation, saying, “And now that I’m blessed to be a father myself – I got one at home [Levi] who’s 11 months and as you people know, we have another one in the oven, three months- this foundation and its cause means even more to me.”
He also gave a shout out to his pregnant girlfriend Camila Alves. “There’s my lady,” he said, gesturing toward the newly pregnant Alves, seated near the stage to hear McConaughey’s speech about volunteering and the charity work of the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
The 39-year-old actor told the crowd he was inspired to give back after the passing of his father.

From the heart:
"Words can hurt. I know that very well, from both sides of the fence. The other night in Toronto, after feeling physically threatened by a verbally abusive Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas, I chose the most hurtful word I know to hurl at him. I was in an out-of-the ordinary situaton and used a word that I would not utter under normal circumstances. My intention - however misguided it may have been - was to stand up for myself and tell this belligerent man that I had enough of his badgering and was not going to continue to let him berate and intimidate me. I wanted to hurt him with the word I chose, not anyone else. Unfortunately, the one who got hurt was me and, subsequently, a lot of other people. I wish none of it had happened. I can't take it back. I did what I thought was best at the moment to stand up for myself in a non-violent yet still assertive way. Clearly, I am not homophobic. Also, I am not nor have I ever claimed to be a spokesperson for the gay community. I am just speaking for myself, a gay man. One who is labeled "flamboyant" in the media. An American that is not granted equal rights under the law. I will continue to speak out for equality and I will continue to say things that upset both gay people and straight people. Who I am as a person and what I do for a living are two separate things.

Socialite Paris Hilton was left shocked after her security personnel found hidden recording equipment during a routine check of her Dubai hotel room.
The One Night in Paris star is in the Arab nation to launch her latest reality show Paris Hilton's 'My New BFF-Dubai.' Hilton's trip turned sour after her bodyguards discovered that she might have been filmed throughout her stay at an exclusive Dubai resort when they stumbled across a secret video transmitter, reported Daily Express online.
"It was some sort of transmitter by all accounts. We're not sure what the device picked up or whom it was transmitting to. But it did leave Paris very jittery," a source told the newspaper.
"We've been told there are some quarters where there is anti-American feeling. Paris' security has been increased and hotel staff are investigating how the device came to be in her room," the source added.

Visual-effects supervisor Scott Farrar was in charge of turning Industrial Light & Magic's computers up to 11 to create the new characters and told reporters that the sequel features 40 new characters.

Don't expect Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi to become moms anytime soon.
Although the couple told PEOPLE last August that they talk about having kids, they have decided that they are happier being cool aunts.
"I don't think we're going to have kids," DeGeneres tells AOL Television. "We have animals, and we love them. And, you know, we are brand new aunts. Her brother and his wife just had a baby girl who's a month old now, and it's fun to be a part of that."
After tying the knot last summer, DeGeneres told PEOPLE, "It's something we would never take lightly and just say, 'That would be fun.' It's a lot of work and we recognize that. In a way, we want to be selfish because we love our life, but we know how much that adds to it."
DeGeneres, 51, and de Rossi, 36, who have crusaded for gay marriage, have since decided to focus on their relationship rather than have children. "It's just a huge responsibility, and I don't know that that's something we want to take on," DeGeneres says. "We're very happily married without children."
Allen insists he has nothing but love for Lambert, but he'd rather focus on his music and finally get a shot at married life with childhood sweetheart, Katy.

Penning his first song.
"I was in my first year of college, and I wrote a song called 'The Real World' and it was horrible! But you live and you learn. The thing that inspires me the most [when I write] is stuff that is happening in my life at that time. Whether it be the good, the bad, whatever. It's just about different people, friends, family and my wife."
Is Lambert stealing the spotlight?
"Adam is definitely one of those people who garnishes media attention. He's different, and he's something completely different from Idol and so I think he deserves all that stuff. And for me, I'm totally laid back and cool. Being on the cover of Rolling Stone, he had something to say and they wanted to be the ones to say it. That was his way to do that. I don't have any problems with it at all. I think Adam totally deserves it. I don't feel like he's stealing my thunder."

In a bizarre lawsuit filed in Burbank Superior Court, Bob Bryar alleges breach of contract, fraud, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress against Daniel Schaffer, described in the action as the self-proclaimed "dog trainer to the stars."
"I don't even know what happened to my best friend and miss her more than anything in the world," Bryar tells PEOPLE. "The devastation I feel is beyond words."
Acting on a referral, Bryar says he spent $7,500 in April to send his dog Dixie, which the lawsuit calls "the most important thing in his life," to Schaffer's kennel for intensified training to help the emotionally fragile, formerly abused rescue dog adjust to a new dog in the household.
About a week later, after previously telling Bryar that the dog had been "having a blast and partying all day," Schaffer reported that Dixie was killed when a drunk driver struck the vehicle in which Schaffer was carrying Dixie and other dogs, according to the lawsuit.
Later that evening, "Schaffer called (Bryar) again and informed him that he could not say goodbye to Dixie for she had been 'cremated due to her condition,'" the lawsuit says. Two days later, the trainer "delivered an urn allegedly containing Dixie's remains," the suit says. After Schaffer failed to produce a police report documenting the crash, he changed his story and said Dixie died in her sleep, then changed that story to say she died under other circumstances, the suit says.
Lost star Harold Perrineau was spotted enjoying a leisurely stroll in LA this weekend with his wife Brittany and their beautiful 13-month-old daughter Wynter Aria.
Harold pushed a ride-on toy while mom Brittany cuddled little Wynter close. The actor has said that they chose the unique name for their daughter because "It's poetic, and she's a little poetry in our life."
The couple are also parents to daughter Aurora, born in 1994.
Speaking to reporters at a press conference, the actor explained that he was happy to resurrect the role of Captain Jack as long as fans were interested.
"I love the character so much and I enjoy playing the character so much and people seem to like it, [so] if there's an opportunity to try again..." JoBlo quotes him as saying.
"It's like going up to bat. You want to get back out there and try and try and try and see what you can do. I enjoy playing Captain Jack very much."
Discussing the existing trilogy, he said: "Call me a glutton if you want... virtually no cinema is perfect, so Pirates one had its own thing, two and three, I suppose, had their own thing."
When asked about possible plotlines for a fourth movie, he joked: "At this point I'm trying to turn it into a Beckett play. It could be anything... Jack could be in some geisha clothing. I don't know. We could explore a lot of possibilities."
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer previously admitted that Pirates 4 was a "priority" for Disney and that he hoped original director Gore Verbinski would return to the helm.

Jon & Kate Have NOT Been Separated For 2 Years
There's a report floating out there that Kate Gosselin has been separated from Jon for two years. That's not true, and we have the lowdown.
We now know what Kate checked on the divorce papers, which are confidential. There are two grounds for a no fault divorce in Pennsylvania -- the first is waiting 90 days after the papers have been served. Then, if both Jon and Kate agree the marriage is "irretrievably broken" ... the divorce can proceed.
And there's a second option -- that they have lived separate and apart for 2 years. But that doesn't mean they have been separated for that long. It means she must wait 2 years from the moment she considered the marriage kaput and began living separately (if only in different bedrooms). We're told the real separation between Jon and Kate is very recent and Kate checked the box just to get the clock ticking.
We found out Kate checked both boxes, and here's why. Jon may not agree that the marriage is irretrievably broken. If that's the case she has to wait the two years. So by checking both boxes, Kate is hedging her bets.
Ultimately, she would have to prove to the judge when she considered herself separate from Jon.
‘True Blood’ Vs. ‘Twilight’: The Battle Continues
If there’s one thing that “Twilight” and “True Blood” fans can both agree upon, it’s that vampires don’t suck — well, they do literally suck, but… ah, you get the point.
No matter which one you’re a fan of, both bloodthirsty franchises have strong support from their viewers. In a lot of cases, those viewers are active in the social media circuits like Twitter and Facebook. And while neither “Twilight” nor “True Blood” tends to edge the other out too badly in terms of online mentions, something very odd occurred to the contrary just last week.
OneRiot has compiled an interesting chart that details the amount of mentions that “Twilight” and “True Blood” each receive in the social media circuit — and while they’re usually neck and neck, “True Blood” soared past “Twilight” on June 15, 2009, dwarfing the likes of Edward and Bella by eight times the normal amount of mentions.
Like a vampire rising from the dead for the first time, the numbers for “True Blood” spiked on the evening of June 14, the same night that the Southern vampire drama premiered its second season on HBO. The premiere, which yielded almost four million viewers, remained a hot topic throughout the remainder of the next day.
What does this mean? For starters, it means that Edward and Bella fell victim to Bill and Sookie — for one night, at least.
But my real hunch? Check those numbers out again when “New Moon” comes out later this year. I got a sneaking suspicion that even the sleaziest of Bon Tempe’s residents won’t be on vampire fandom’s mind when the cameras focus on the Cullen family again.

It was months between Jessie Cave’s first open call audition and finding out that the 22-year-old Londoner had nabbed the part of Lavender Brown, Hermione’s smitten roommate-turned-romantic competition in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” “It was quite surreal,” Cave said in an interview. “Throughout the process I never thought I had the part, the chances were so slim.”
Well, not so slim: Cave appeared in the CBBC drama “Summerhill” and is currently starring on the West End stage in the critically acclaimed revival of Tom Stoppard’s "Arcadia."
While waiting to see the finished film herself, Cave talked to Hero Complex about scaring Rupert Grint, who plays Lavender’s sweetheart Ron, with (a perhaps all-too-realistic?) audition, the actors' first kiss, and how Lavender puts up a good fight for Ron's heart.
For your final audition, what scene did you get to act out with Rupert?
We actually had to improvise for a good 15 or 20 minutes, which is very scary. It’s a really long time. The director, David Yates, was there and he was just like, “Hi. Right. Here’s a plate of biscuits, Jessie. It’s a lovely plate of chocolate biscuits and I want you to do whatever you want with these biscuits.’ Rupert was in the room, sitting on the sofa, and I just thought, ‘What the hell am I going to do with this plate of biscuits?’
What did you end up doing?
I thought, ‘I’m just going to go for it.’ And I think Rupert was a bit scared, really. The biscuits were past the sofa, away from me so I kind of just tangled myself around Rupert and just made it really obvious that I didn’t really care about the biscuits. I just wanted to be near him. I think he was quite scared.
Awww, he was probably acting, too. Right?
No, he was actually scared [laughs]. I think he’s easily scared though, bless him. He was so lovely and we really got on and made each other laugh, and that helped.

This is a video of Lindsay showing up for the Transformers premiere, halfway through the movie.
When Paramount Pictures decided to remake Footloose, the 1984 teen romance that made a young, lanky actor named Kevin Bacon famous, the studio looked to Zac Efron of the High School Musical trilogy. He could sing. He could dance. And most importantly, he could summon the teenage girls to theaters with one strategic toss of his swoopy hair.
But then Mr. Efron abruptly ditched the picture. He didn’t want to be typecast as the guy who does musicals, he said. The suits at Paramount barely flinched. There were no threats of delaying the filming, set for next spring. They simply found a quick but suitable replacement—another swoopy-haired, pretty-faced actor, named Chace Crawford.
Mr. Crawford, 23, bears a remarkable resemblance to Mr. Efron, 21. In fact, these men are perhaps the youngest incarnation of something eerie that’s been happening in Hollywood. Male actors have become increasingly indistinguishable. And not only are they all starting to look alike; but they also sort of act alike, too.

In this comedy, McAdams plays the role of Becky Fuller, an aspiring news producer who tries to save a failing morning show by getting control of its feuding anchors played by Ford and Diane Keaton.
Morning Glory is being produced by JJ Abrams and directed by Roger Michell.

Apple's website has begun streaming the 92-second American trailer for Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's Ponyo film in three high-definition resolutions on Wednesday night. The movie will open in North American theaters on August 14.
Frank Marshall, one of the producers for the North American release, has revealed on his personal Twitter account that the Ponyo trailer will debut in theaters "this weekend on My Sister's Keeper." Nick Cassavetes is directing that film version of Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper novel with Cameron Diaz, Abigail Breslin, and Alec Baldwin in the cast. Marshall had previously said that the Ponyo trailer would have premiered during the July 4th weekend.
Marshall told the Sci Fi Wire website this month that Ponyo's dubbed version was "tweaked" with the blessing and daily consultation of "Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki-san and [producer Toshio] Suzuki-san." According to Marshall, "It's not a direct translation. We have tweaked the story so it is an understandable story for our audience. Melissa Matheson, who wrote E.T., came in and helped us shape the story." He also emphasized that the subtitled version will be available on DVD.
The story follows an ordinary boy named Sosuke (Frankie Jonas in the English dub) and his friendship with Ponyo (Noah Cyrus), a goldfish who wishes to be human. The other English-language castmembers include Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cloris Leachman, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin, and Betty White.

Harry Potter, the teen wizard whose films have generated billions of dollars and become one of Hollywood's biggest franchises, is known for battling the evil Lord Voldemort. Now he's about to confront an even darker foe: A soft DVD market.
"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," the sixth installment in the Warner Bros. film series, will be released July 15, and expectations are that it will be one of the year's biggest blockbusters. The previous five "Potter" movies have generated $7.2 billion in worldwide box-office and DVD sales, reaping huge profits for the studio and Potter's creator, author J.K. Rowling.
But the movie world that "Half-Blood Prince" will enter is markedly different from the one that its predecessor, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," faced when it was released in 2007. Over the last two years, DVD sales, which have long propped up the movie business, have sharply declined. The slump in the DVD market has undermined Hollywood's business model and cast a shadow over what used to be the industry's bright spot.

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have split, Usmagazine.com have learned
A source close to the couple tells Us: "It was an amicable break-up. They walk away from it still friends."
Adds another source, "They still care about each other very much. This is what's best for both of them."
Scotland Yard tells us the expletive spewing chef was ticketed for using his cell phone while driving a badass black Ferarri -- which will end up costing him around 130 bucks.
So I read on a hip hop board that this isn't the firs time he has done this.
"Plies stays throwing out money."
Oh really? lol
If recreations aren't your thing and you've always wanted to own a genuine piece of Blade Runner history, today is your lucky day ... but it's going to cost you. Christie's Great Estates has announced that Frank Lloyd Wright's Ennis House (also known as The Blade Runner House), is officially up for sale. There is a $15 million price tag on the house, but the cultural landmark is still a bit of a fixer-upper, and renovation costs are estimated in the millions. Ennis House was built in 1924, but despite being one of the most famous landmarks in L.A., keeping the house standing has been proving more difficult over years.
Since it was first built, Ennis House has been crumbling thanks to earthquakes and rainstorms, but the movie landmark has been under the protection of a trust (whose members included Diane Keaton) for years. But when the expense of maintaining the house had become too much, the trust finally made the decision to sell. The trust's president was quoted as saying, "We've made a lot of progress, but a private owner with the right vision and sufficient resources can better preserve the house than we can."
Ennis House has served as a backdrop for plenty of movies and television shows over the years, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Black Rain. Although, acting as the stand-in for the famed Replicant hunter's apartment was what put the home on the map for most movie buffs. $15 million is a little out of my price range, but I do wonder who will manage to snag the house first? Will it be a fan of architecture, or one serious sci-fi collector?

Vanessa Hudgens is learning how to kick butt!
The High School Musical star is gearing up for her role in the highly-anticipated movie Sucker Punch – and she’s been aching for it.
“I’m not necessarily scared,” she says. “I am extremely excited. I had my stunt evaluation the other day and it was basically learning how to throw the correct punches and all these kicks and craziness that I never knew how to do.
“By the end of that day I was going back and forth with someone — kicking, punching, kicking, punching — and then he would have to come back at me and I would have to block it. Then the next day I felt so bad. I have never been so sore in my life. I love it but it was ridiculous.”
Vanessa — who is currently dating her former HSM costar Zac Efron — recently revealed that she’s “stoked” to have landed her action-packed role in Sucker Punch.
“I’m so stoked about it,” she said. “I kept telling everyone, ‘I want to do an action film.’ But they were like, ‘Maybe in a few years.’ So I’m like, ‘Ha, in your face. I am doing one now!’”

After months of speculation about the fate of the 2009 Virgin Mobile Festival, organizers have made an announcement that should please music fans who've felt the economic pinch of the recession: this year's event is free.
With headliners Weezer and Blink-182, organizers say 35,000 free tickets will be given away to the newly branded Virgin Mobile FreeFest, to be held Aug. 30 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md.
Other acts scheduled to perform on the festival's two main stages and dance tent include Franz Ferdinand, Public Enemy, Jet, the National, Girl Talk, the Bravery, the Hold Steady, St. Vincent, Wale, Taking Back Sunday, Holy F*ck, Pete Tong, Danny Howells and Lee Burridge.
Tickets to the 2009 Virgin Mobile FreeFest will be available to the public on June 27 through ticketmaster.com. Virgin Mobile customers and previous ticket-buyers to Virgin Mobile Festivals will be sent an e-mail that gives them the first crack at obtaining free tickets from June 25-26. Organizers declined to say how many of the festival's tickets will be set aside for those people.
Although tickets are free, organizers will encourage Virgin Mobile FreeFest attendees to make a donation of $5 to help youth homeless shelters by texting "FREEFEST" to 20222. The event will also feature a VIP section for people who complete 13 hours of community service at designated homeless youth shelters around the nation.
