Lindsay Lohan is desperate to take her obsession with Marilyn Monroe to the big screen and star in a remake of movie classic "Some Like It Hot."
The actress has posed for two Monroe-themed photoshoots, in Spanish Vogue and New York magazine, and famously has a quote from "Some Like it Hot" tattooed on her wrist.
Sources close to Lohan claims she sees real parallels between her life and that of the Monroe and is pitching a remake to Hollywood bosses.
According to OK! magazine, director Brett Ratner has already rejected the idea, but Lohan isn't giving up.
An insider tells the tabloid, "Lindsay is pinning her hopes on getting a remake of 'Some Like It Hot' off the ground.
"She's undaunted, but there's no script and there's no money. The only thing Lindsay has to sell is herself.
"She sees herself as the second coming of Marilyn Monroe -- misunderstood, talented and in desperate need of an incredible film vehicle that will truly showcase her talents."
Whats everyone obsession with Marilyn Monroe? Shes so overrated.
Did Hayden Panettiere issue a royal diss to a starstruck fan during a recent encounter at LAX?
Spywitnesses tell The Globe’s Loosch Lips Column that the Heroes cutie — known for her environmental and humanitarian efforts — curtly refused to sign an autograph for a male fan who approached her as she exited a flight.
A jet-lagged Hayden was headed home after a press junket in New York City for her new film, I Love You, Beth Cooper.
“Get a life and a real job,” Hayden allegedly snarled at the autograph seeker.
“She was so nasty and insulting to the poor guy for no apparent reason,” says one astounished snitch. “It’s not like she was being hounded by a bunch of people.”

Nine Inch Nails Trent Reznor has explained once again why he has decided to quit using Twitter as a way to stay in touch with his fans.
The singer expressed his frustration at the fact that unwanted followers cannot be completely blocked from the social networking website.
"Yes, I deleted my account and I'll explain why since somehow someone apparently thinks this is newsworthy," Reznor wrote.
"Twitter seemed like an interesting way to quickly reach a large number of people, and people that seem to exist outside of the nin.com world of fans.
"Then... around the time news broke of my engagement, a faction of troublemakers showed up whose sole intent was to disrupt, harass, insult and incite…In a reasonably moderated community, these people can be made to vanish - on Twitter, it's a free-for-all - hence they flock there. It depresses me to think my art and life's work can attract this kind of scum…if that was your intention you trolling, cowardly pigs - you've succeeded."

NBC has decided to drop Canadian import "The Listener" halfway through its premier season. Citing poor ratings, the peacock will replace the remaining episodes with "Law and Order" repeats beginning Thursday, July 30th. "The Listener" is about a 25-year old Toronto paramedic who can hear the thoughts of others who tries to use his ability to help others.
North of the border, "The Listener" has consistently won its time slot on CTV, averaging 981,000 viewers per week. It has also proven to be a popular series overseas due to strong promotion by Fox International Channels, where it premiered in foreign markets back in March.
Fox International has already expressed an interest in a second season. CTV, which is developing a reputation for picking successful Canadian-produced shows, has yet to announce whether or not they will order a second season of "The Listener". The show's Canadian producer Christina Jennings of Shaftesbury Films report that being dropped from NBC's schedule would not affect another season of "The Listener" since the show's budget was not dependent on the US network.
For now, fans in Canada can catch the remaining five episodes this summer.

I actually kind of like this show despite the soft filter on it. It's something new to watch and isn't too bad. I'll admit I'm probably watching mostly for Craig Olejnik's icy blues, though. I'm so disappointed that they canceled it to show reruns.
There's a petition to bring it back for a second season here too.
Anyone wanting to watch the show or finish up the season can watch episodes on Hulu, NBC.com or Youtube
Pals of troubled actress Mischa Barton are worried the star has pushed herself back into work too soon following her health problems earlier this month.
Barton was placed under involuntary psychiatric hold at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after reportedly suffering a meltdown and calling police to her Hollywood home.
She was released over the weekend after a week of treatment, and her representative insisted the 23-year-old was eager to get back to work. She is due to start shooting Ashton Kutcher's new show "The Beautiful Life" in New York.
But Barton's close circle of friends fear she is taking on too much too soon, insisting the star needs more "aggressive" therapy to get back to her best, according to the New York Daily News.
An insider tells the publication, "Mischa needs more aggressive treatment over a long period of time.
"It's only been a matter of days since she was released from the hospital, and I think she definitely wasn't there long enough. She needs to be very cautious -- she's at a very big risk. I personally think it's a bad idea to go back this quickly, given her past history with substance abuse."
Barton, 23, is set to play Sonja Stone, a catwalk beauty addicted to pills, on the new show, which is tentatively scheduled to start filming on July 31.
Pop princess Britney Spears is worried that Lady GaGa is copying her trendsetting on-stage persona. Brit has been particularly on guard since GaGa — who was once believed to be the victim of swagger-jacking at the hands of Christina Aguilera — was snapped in Toronto this month sporting ensembles that looked suspiciously “Spears-like.”
Even BritneySpears.com bosses noticed the similarities between the two pop divas — similarities that have shaken the 27-year-old who popped onto the music scene more than a decade ago.
A source tells Star: “On the one hand, Britney appreciates that GaGa is so into her look because it shows she respects her, but Britney worries that GaGa is encroaching on her territory…As long as it doesn’t completely steal her thunder, she’s OK with it.”
With her jet-black hair, thick red lips, sexy attitude and uncensored mouth its hard not to think of Megan Fox as the emerging Angelina Jolie, but the 23-year-old "Transformers" starlet has had enough with constantly being compared to the actress/activist.
"I think its cause she has tattoos really, I think a lack of creativity on the media's part," Fox said. "I am a brunette with tattoos, I curse and I have made mention of sex before. I joked about it which people find outrageous so they want to constantly compare that to her. You know Shia is the new Tom Hanks, Rhianna is the new Beyonce. Everybody is the new somebody although none of us are any of those people so you just walk around with it you live with it."
However Fox isn’t the only one quick to diss the comparison, Jolie’s own father Jon Voight agrees that the two really aren’t alike.
"Megan is herself and Angelina is herself. No one is comparable; everyone in the world is unique," Voight told Tarts at the recent "Transformers" premiere in Los Angeles. "That’s the great thing about it, but of course they’re two very beautiful women."
Why do I always forget that Kristen Stewart is only 19-years-old. Maybe it's because she just seems like an old soul.
This video of Kristen Stewart shows her hanging out with friends, after a long hard day on the set of The Runaways, in someone's backyard enjoying a nice cold Heinken. I'm going to pretend that she's filled the bottle with some frothy water just so she fits in with the other youths in the video.
We love you Kristen. We definitely appreciate the fact that she hopped in the passenger's seat.
Hurry to watch the video because I'm sure it's going to be taken down soon. It's creepy that it's being shot behind bushes and trees.

I know that if I test positive for using any kind of substance, I know that I'm going to disrespect my family, the game, the fans and everybody. I don't want to be facing that situation, so what I will do, I won't use."

Katherine Heigl may be totally kidding when she complained about the 17-hour day she spent on the set of Grey's Anatomy during her visit on the Late Show with David Letterman but not everyone found her remark funny.
"Our first day back was Wednesday and it was -- I'm going to keep saying this because I hope it embarrasses them -- a 17-hour day," Heigl told David Letterman last Monday, "which I think is cruel and mean."
Evidently, some sources told Emmy-winning TV writer and casual blogger Ken Levine that the Grey's Anatomy actress was to blame for the 17-hour day in question.
"Poor Katherine Heigl. What she neglected to add was this: This 'cruel' shooting schedule was only to accommodate HER and her needs. The producers graciously shuffled things around so she could go off and do promotion for her new film. Also, with union rules, the producers had to pay a ton of overtime and penalties to make this happen. The thanks they get is Katherine Heigl going on national television hoping to embarrass them," Levine wrote on his blog.
As we all know, Heigl stars in the romantic comedy film The Ugly Truth, which was released in theaters on July 24. Consequently, she went on to promote her new movie but kept bringing up the 17-hour day she spent on the ABC medical drama during her press tour.
While Heigl has yet to comment on what really caused the painstaking work day, rumors of her turning from America's sweetheart to Hollywood's most difficult diva have already surfaced previously. According to the New York Daily News, the Grey's Anatomy actress has sparked all kinds of rumors on the set of her latest movie, Five Killers, for allegedly demanding a series of requests, including insisting on flying via private plane to the film's international locations and having crazy amounts of security.
Bigg Marv, aka Marvin Grant, a reality TV character and cousin of music star MC Hammer, was arrested Thursday afternoon for raping a woman he met on Twitter, according to Lt. Matt Sarsfield of the Livermore Police Department.

The woman, who is from Los Angeles, arranged to meet Wednesday night at a hotel in Livermore after Grant returned from a shoot in Las Vegas, Sarsfield said.

We all remember her infamous pro-traditional-marriage statement at the Miss USA Pageant earlier this year, and now the former Miss California Carrie Prejean is filing a lawsuit against the Miss California organization.
According to a report, Miss Prejean is naming Keith Lewis and Shana Moakler, the pageant organizers, as well, saying she experienced slander, libel, public disclosure of private facts, religious discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
Furthermore, Carrie is claiming that there was a “conspiracy” against her by Moakler and Lewis and that their “wrongful conduct” against her “constituted a breach of duty.”
Prior to filing the suit with the court system, Miss Prejean will meet with lawyers for the Miss California organization to see if they can mediate the conflict without going through the court system.

Eight Secrets About the 'Saved by the Bell' Reunion
Jimmy Fallon has been begging the Saved by the Bell cast to do a reunion on his show for as long as he's been on air. And finally this week, we get our long-awaited reunion. But it's not on Fallon. It's on the cover of People magazine, which landed a photo shoot and interview with five of the six Saved by the Bell stars (the only one missing: Dustin Diamond, a.k.a. Screech). What happened? Why did the Bayside clan ditch Fallon, and where is Screech anyway?
NEWSWEEK sat down for an interview with Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris) in June, just a few days after he parodied his old Saved by the Bell character on a segment on Fallon that quickly went Internet viral. Here are the things we learned, printed here for the very first time.
(1) Why is Dustin Diamond missing on the cover of People? Gosselaar says he hasn't talked to him recently, and they're no longer close. "That's a disaster on so many levels," he says of Diamond's problems (he owes $14,000 in taxes and starred in a sex tape). "I don't know where his head is. I know probably as much as you know from watching things on TV. It's as entertaining as hell. I watch it. But it's not great."
(2) Is he worried that Diamond is writing a Saved by the Bell tell-all book? Apparently not. "What is he going to say?" Gosselaar asks. "We were banging groupies at 14? I can't wait to read his book, because I don't have a memory of a lot of the shows. Maybe it was because I was doing lines off of the audience members' asses. I'm sure he's going to write something crazy like that. The truth is─the reason why the show worked and why it's still on today─we were good people and good to each other. We were innocent, naive kids. We were not jaded. So him writing a book, I'm not really afraid of what he has to say. There are not too many skeletons in my closet."
(3) Why did Gosselaar parody Zack on Fallon last month? "I didn't want to do a standard interview," he says. "What inspired me was Justin Timberlake going into character on SNL with his 'D--k in a Box' joke, and Neil Patrick Harris, who has embraced his past and has had fun with it in Harold & Kumar."
(4) How did he look so young, even though it's been 15 years since he stopped playing Zack? "I read a blog [where] some guy said, 'Dude, lay off the Botox.' I've never had Botox before. The wig was so f--king tight, it gave me a mini face-lift."
(5) Did People magazine just steal Jimmy Fallon's idea for a Saved by the Bell reunion? Actually, according to Gosselaar, People had the idea first. But the cast kept stalling. "It's very hard to get all of us together," he says.
(6) Was there anything Fallon could have done? Yes. Fallon never offered any specifics. "Jimmy has never gone into detail about what he has in mind for the reunion," Gosselaar says. "I'm more for a reunion if we're completely in character and we can do a skit about it. That would be something the audience would yearn for than just seeing us."
(7) But didn't Elizabeth Berkley already commit to Fallon's reunion? Gosselaar supposedly called her when he was on his show. "That phone was a prop phone," he says. "That was acting, my friend."
(8) What's the biggest thing Saved by the Bell gave Zack Morris? "I met my wife on Saved by the Bell: The College Years. She literally walked by in the hallway and said one word to Zack. Zack looks at her, and gives a look at the camera and winks. It was 16 years ago. We've been together ever since." (This is his wife, fyi.)

Radio show's bathroom banter spurs controversy
Did the "Morning X" talk jocks on CIMX-FM (88.7, 89X) take a joke so far that their show was pulled from the air Thursday? Perhaps for good?
For the last few days, hosts Dave Hunter, Chuck the Freak and Lisa Way have been involved in something called "Operation Dark Stall," a microphone-driven "investigation" that began Monday after Chuck said he found an unidentified station employee lurking in an employee restroom -- where it was completely dark.
On Tuesday's show, Chuck gave an eyewitness account -- he said he took off after being startled by the ominous shadowy figure -- and then the jocks (and callers) followed up with humorous speculation about what one might do in the dark loo.
They also called other 89X personalities and station employees and questioned them on the air, employing, of course, their usual brand of sarcasm. But the employee who was the target of their fun apparently didn't take too kindly to the ongoing grilling and complained to management.

This week's cover: Vampires!
This week’s Entertainment Weekly delivers the ultimate guide to vampires. You’ll find interviews with the authors behind Twilight and True Blood, our list of the 20 greatest bloodsuckers ever, and Anne Rice’s pick for the best new vampire — as well as a talk with her about how she revolutionized the vampire legend decades ago with Interview with a Vampire.
With Twilight a phenomenon, True Blood attracting converts by the millions, and hordes of new vampire projects looming in the shadows, bloodsuckers are haunting every corner of our lives: bookstores, television, movies, and more. Why has pop culture thrown open its door and invited them in? “The traditional vampire story, with monsters and victims, chases and chills, is more plain fun,” says True Blood’s executive producer Alan Ball. “But they can often reveal the general state of the cultural psyche.”

I knew it was only a matter of time before ish like this came out. Fox 411 is reporting that inappropriate text messages from Kanye West to Kim Kardashian may have been a contributing factor in the Kim/Reggie Bush break up:
“Reggie saw text messages on Kim’s phone from Kanye West and flipped out on her. The texts referenced a night they hung out, how much fun he had, how hot Kim was, and more racy things that got Reggie’s imagination running,” says the source.
The 'Beautiful Liar' singer Shakira is certain her fiance Antonio de la Rua – the son of Argentina's former president Fernando de La Rua - is the "right person" to start a family with, and is planning to start trying for a baby as soon as possible.
The 32-year-old star said: "I constantly think about raising a family. I want to reproduce so bad! Antonio and I have been together for nine years and function as a married couple even though we're not married.
"I don't think you find the right person in your life more than once. I don't even think about how famous he is. We look at each other as a man and a woman and that's it. We try to live a normal life and I keep my family close to me so I still feel like a real person."
Shakira also reflected on 'Beautiful Liar' - her "thrilling" 2007 collaboration with Beyonce Knowles.
She added to Britain’s Look magazine: "It was fantastic to work with her.
"She's an amazing performer and very sweet. The song was her idea and I was so thrilled. She's a very determined and focused woman and that's something to admire."

The who’s who of the Atlanta social scene descended upon the W Buckhead Hotel Tuesday night for the red carpet premiere of the anticipated second season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kim Zolciak, Lisa Wu-Hartwell, Sheree Whitfield and NeNe Leakes — along with new Housewife Kandi Burruss — happily posed together for photographers, but it wasn’t long before the war of words began.
“We are still not friends,” Leakes said of Zolciak, her sparring partner on the first season. “Nothing has changed … A lot of people work with people they don’t like everyday. I am just one of those girls who work with people I don’t like.”
Well, something has changed. DeShawn Snow has been replaced in season 2 by Burruss, a singer and songwriter who has penned songs for artists like Mariah Carey, Destiny’s Child and TLC.
Burruss told PEOPLE she and NeNe didn’t exactly hit it off. “She called me ghetto at one point,” she said. “She has a lot of nerve. Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black?”
“I did not know her before the show and I still don’t know her now,” Leakes replied. “I think she was hearing negativity from somewhere else because she does not know me well enough to treat me the way that she does. But, it’s okay. I find that women who are very weak cannot stand up to a strong woman like me.”
Burruss, however, viewed the situation differently. “Her mouth is just way too much. I cannot take the loud talking and the waving of the finger in your face,” she said. “If you do that to me, I am ready to go after you.”
A former member of the ’90s girl group Xscape, Burruss said her experience with the group prepared her for Housewives. “I am used to dealing with women. I have the ability to work with someone you have just had an argument with. But, towards the end of taping, it became really tense,” she said. “NeNe and I got into to it and then [the producers] wanted us to come back and talk about it. That talk did not go so well either.”
While Leakes proclaimed herself “the realest of the Atlanta Housewives,” Burruss expressed doubt about NeNe’s authenticity. “At times, I would think, ‘Is she just trying to egg things on for television or does she truly think and act like this?’”
NeNe explained: “I have what they call, ‘camera balls,’” said Leakes, whose memoir, Never Make the Same Mistake Twice, debuts Aug. 11. “When the camera comes on, they come out … I am not superficial nor am I fake. I don’t switch gears. I am always this way. If you —- with me, I will —- with you!”
Newly single Jessica Simpson was hanging with her godson Dylan when he accidentally decked her with one of her Christian Louboutin shoes.
On her Twitter page Friday, she posted a photo, along with the caption: "My godson Dylan giving me a hug after hitting me in the back with my louboutin leopard wedges."
The hug left Simpson feeling reflective.
Shortly after the Tweet, she posted, "Everything is as simple as it should be..."
Eminem and Mariah Carey are at it again.
On Thursday, the rapper debuted a new song, "The Warning," slamming his ex and going into full detail about a sexual encounter they once had.
"Only reason I dissed you in the first place is because you denied seeing me. Now I'm pissed off," he says before he starts his rap.
"You wanna hear something wick wack?/ I got the same exact tattoo that's on Nick's back," he says, referring to Carey's husband Nick Cannon.
Eminem also blasts Carey for mocking him in her latest music video, "Obsessed."
"Oh gee, is that supposed to be me in the video with the goatee?/ Wow Mariah, didn't expect ya to go b---s out./ B---h, shut the f--- up before I put all those phone calls out/ When you was wilding out/ Before Nick, when you was on my di--," he raps.
He then threatens to reveal personal pictures he has of the Carey. "Mariah, it ever occur to you that I still have pictures?" he asks.
The feud between the two began earlier this year after Eminem namedropped Carey in the track "Bagpipes From Baghdad" from his latest album Relapse. "Mariah whatever happened to us / Why did we ever have to break-up?" he rapped. "Nick Cannon, you better back the f--- up. I'm not playing, I want her back, you punk."
Cannon later shot back on his blog, calling the rapper (who goes by the name "Slim Shady") "Slim Lamey." He added that Eminem is "still obsessed with my wife, the same female that wouldn't let him get to second base from 8 years ago." A month or so later, Carey got the last laugh by mocking Eminem in "Obsessed."

One of the tricky things about pop culture is that you never know for sure whether it'll be ahead of the times or behind them. African-American music, for example, was a trailblazing force — it helped make black culture part of the mainstream decades before anyone dreamed we might ever have a president named Obama.
You can see the flip side of this in our current movies' treatment of women. When Hollywood isn't ignoring them altogether, it's usually putting them down, even in romantic comedies supposedly aimed at the female audience.
Nobody gets ruder treatment than career women, who are routinely portrayed as bossy, uptight and utterly without personal lives. What they need, we're supposed to think, is a man. But before they can get one, they must have a mortifying comeuppance.

Kristen Stewart has shot down rumors she’s dating her Twilight and New Moon costar Robert Pattinson – insisting they’re just good pals.
Rumors of a romance have been rife for months, with recent reports claiming they spent the night together at a hotel in San Diego.
But Kristen, 19, is adamant she’s still with her longtime boyfriend, actor Michael Angarano.
Asked by Britain’s Top of The Pops magazine if the dating rumors are true, Kristen said, “No. Rob and I are good friends.
“We went through a lot together, so we feel very close. I’ve acquired a good buddy and that’s a big deal, but I haven’t left my boyfriend for Robert Pattinson!” Kristen and Rob, 23, reunited at Comic-Con in San Diego last Thursday.
The pair had spent most of the summer apart. Kristen has been in Los Angeles filming Joan Jett biopic The Runaways; Robert has been in New York filming indie drama Remember Me.
The duo attended the eagerly-awaited event to promote the Twilight sequel.
During interviews, Stewart wasn’t as forthcoming when quizzed about her love life.
When one reporter asked Rob and Kris about their romantic relationship, Kristen rolled her eyes, laughed and said, “Are you kidding me?”
Another reporter said, “This question is for Kristen and Robert. You guys have great chemistry on film, romantically. Is there any chemistry off camera?”
Do you think Rob and Kristen are dating?

Disney is on the verge of putting Rob Marshall in as director of a fourth installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean,” a move that puts the film on track for a 2010 production start, with Johnny Depp back as Captain Jack Sparrow.
There hasn’t been a director at the helm of the pirate ship since April, when Gore Verbinski stepped out to focus on a movie version of the vidgame “Bioshock” for Universal (Daily Variety, April 7, 2009). Though that film’s lost some momentum, Verbinski has moved on to other directing and producing projects.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney have been meeting with a number of directors in recent weeks, because the studio wants to pull the “Pirates” film together and have Depp star in it before he does “The Lone Ranger” for the producer and the studio. While Marshall’s involvement wasn’t immediately confirmed, sources said things look good enough that the studio has begun casting new characters that will appear in the picture.
It is big business for Disney, as the “Pirates” trilogy grossed $2.6 billion worldwide with Verbinski at the helm. Sources say unless things break down at the last moment, Marshall will be steering the pirate vehicle’s next installment.
Marshall, who made his feature directing debut with the Oscar-winning musical “Chicago,” most recently completed another musical, “Nine,” which stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson and Sophia Loren. The film will be released November 25 by The Weinstein Co.

Banks hasn't had a straight-up acting gig since 2004, when she guest-starred in an episode of American Dreams.

Less than two months after splitting, Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt are back together, Usmagazine.com has confirmed.
"They are definitely happy again," a source close to the couple -- who called it quits in June after four months of dating -- tells Us.
A rep for Reinhardt has no comment.
On Monday, Reinhardt, 23, posted on Twitter: "What an amazing weekend with my beautiful girlfriend. I love her so much!" The day before that, he wrote: "Laying in bed watching SportsCenter with my girl."
Hilton, 28, declared she'd wed Reinhardt -- who dated Lauren Conrad on The Hills -- last April. "He's going to be my husband," she told E! "We're best friends. It's not like we just met. We've known each other over the past year. I was in a relationship before and we reconnected. I'm really in love and really happy."

P.S. Did you know there are actually McIntosh apples? Canada won that one:
McIntosh apples were developed by a farmer named John McIntosh in Ontario, Canada, in 1870. The apple is still a success today, and is the top-selling variety in North America. It’s been cross-bred with other varieties to create other well-known apples, including Cortland, Empire, and Spartan. McIntosh apples are round and red, usually retaining some green mottling even when ripe. They have a white flesh with a spicy, aromatic flavor and plenty of juice. They tend to hold up well as pie apples, and are excellent for snacking.
Kelly Clarkson sticks her tongue out and pretends to lick weather anchorman Sam Champion during Good Morning America in Central Park, New York City on Friday morning (July 31). The 27-year-old original American Idol performed her hit songs “Already Gone” and “Walk Away.”
Earlier this week co-writer/producer Ryan Tedder addressed rumors that he had ripped off his own work on Beyonce’s “Halo” and Kelly’s “Already Gone.” Tedder’s said, “‘Already Gone’ is one of the best songs I’ve written or produced since [Leona Lewis's] ‘Bleeding Love’ and stands tall on it’s own merits apart from ‘Halo.’
They are two entirely different songs conceptually, melodically, & lyrically and I would never try to dupe an artist such as Kelly Clarkson or Beyonce into recording over the same musical track, the idea is both hurtful & absurd. I think when people hear ‘Already Gone’ they will hear what I hear — one of the greatest female vocalists on earth giving her most haunting and heart-breaking performance on a song she helped write. I challenge people to listen and form their own opinions.”

Kirsten Dunst is sending Robert Pattinson sexy texts, wants Eclipse role
Earlier today, Kaiser told you how Robert Pattinson is getting his hunky heart broken by his mortal co-star Kristen Stewart. While Pattinson was off having a maybe-fling with his other co-star, Emille de Ravin, Stewart decided to get back together with her ex boyfriend, dashing Pattinson’s hope of a reunion. At least, according to the National Enquirer. I’m hoping that behind the scenes these two are quietly still together and will eventually get married and have supernatural babies. (I’m undoubtedly influenced by the fact that I’m almost done reading the third Twilight novel, Eclipse. I know this is lame for an adult married mom, but work with me here.)
According to Star Magazine, there might been an even more sinister twist to the Pattinson/Stewart love pentagon. Kirsten Dunst is said to be trying to get her skinny thrift store claws on Edward, I mean Robert! She’s been sending the British actor sexy text messages trying to entice him into her messy lair.
Kirst Dunst has set Robert Pattinson square in her sights! “Kirsten is absolutely infatuated with him and thinks he would be the ideal boyfriend,” a friend tells Star. The pair first crossed paths while Rob, 23, was filming Remember Me in New York City earlier this summer. “She’s been sending Rob a barrage of flirty texts, letting him know she is very interested in getting to know him better - whenever and wherever he wants.” The 27 year-old has even hatched a desperate plan to lobby for a part in Eclipse, the third film in the hit vampire series, according to another source. “She thinks they would have a lot in common.” After all, Kirsten had her own taste of bloodsucking notoriety in 1994’s Interview with the Vampire!
[From Star Magazine, print edition, August 10, 2009]
The best part of this story is that Star uses one of those photos of Kirsten Dunst in which her two canine teeth (I thought those were the incisors or whatever, but I looked it up) are stuck to her lip like fangs. That’s really why I’m running this story - I just wanted to recreate that image. Plus it never hurts to alert the Twihards that they have some competition. Maybe they’ll boycott her movies and complain about her on their blogs. (Oh wait, I’m doing that.) Stay away from Kirsten, Rob!

A BOSSIP insider and close friend of the couple say that Ciara and No Cents have been chopping for a minute, but do not like the press involved.
I just talked to 50 and he said to keep it under wraps, but him and Ciara…… are still together. They are coming out with something soon to show the world their affection for each other. It has been an off and on relationship with both of them taking time from the relationship for their careers. When ever they see each other, the two continue from where they left off. Now that they are getting older, the two are taking their relationship a lot more serious and will be going public in the near future.
We knew 50 was chopping up CiCi’s cakes before; however, we thought that was water under the bridge. The two have not been seen together in a minute, but you know how Hollyweird does it…Wonder if 50 is feeling her pecks.

Los Angeles, Calif.–The Star has learned exclusively that the voice cast of Futurama has just signed a new contract with Fox after weeks of intense salary negotiations.
As late as last week, the network was threatening to replace the original voices of Matt Groening's cult-hit cartoon, to the point of actually announcing a casting call for voice actors to replace them.
The compromise agreement, with the studio paying more and the actors accepting less, comes after the announcement of a 26-episode pick-up here by Comedy Central. Futurama also airs internationally in syndication, has produced four bestselling straight-to-DVD movies (later cut into episodes) and an upcoming feature film.
A full-frontal nude photograph of Joltin' Joe DiMaggio hangs in the gallery Modernism (685 Market St., Suite 290, through Aug. 29). The exhibit is "Hunted and Gathered," anonymous photos from the collection of Robert Flynn Johnson, curator emeritus of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
The photo shows DiMaggio in a postgame shower, wearing a happy grin. It's early in Joe's career, circa 1940. Neck up, it's Huck Finn with a goofy smile.
Asked how he obtained the photo, Johnson joked, "I have friends in low places."
DiMag would be appalled. He was a private and guarded fellow with a carefully cultivated image of cool sophistication, a hermit prince. This photo is fascinating because it is Joe's alter ego.
"Celebrities have a mask," Johnson said, "and when you pull out a camera, they put on the mask. Here you see Joe as a kid, with a slightly goofy grin. As he gets older he takes on a more severe, distinguished look. (The photo) is a kid, showing joy, and his guard's down."
Added Johnson, "It's a Rorschach test for people's perceptions. Some will only see a Joe DiMaggio, see only frontal nudity. To others, you or I, this is an athlete in his prime, showing happiness, and it's as simple as that. ... I don't find it titillating at all, it's a marvelous photo."
A photo of DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe on the verge of a kiss sold for $2,250. The nude Joe is not for sale. "It's too interesting a photo," Johnson says.

According to rumors, Rihanna is supposedly shocked by Chris Brown’s public video apology after he beat her to the point of needing hospitalization in February. Sources say that Rihanna wasn’t too happy about him addressing it so publicly.
An insider reportedly tells Now magazine, “She’s in total shock. It was like he gave her another blow, albeit one of a different kind. All she knows is that it’s in the news again and that’s the one thing she didn’t want. She’s been trying to put it behind her and move on as fast as possible.”
The source continues, “They spoke earlier last week and Chris made no mention of any public statement then. She wishes he’d given her at least a heads-up about it. But that’s Chris, always thinking of himself first and forgetting how this would impact on her.”
Furthermore, the insider says, “In the video he says he’s apologized to Rihanna privately many times and that’s true. So we’re questioning what this video is really for. It’s clearly something he’s done for his public image. It’s convenient that he’s waited until his new album’s coming out.”

Remember two weeks ago when Nia Long was quoted talking a bunch of ying yang about Beyonce????
Pride magazine is now saying that her words were twisted:
In response to the media coverage around Pride Magazine’s Nia Long cover story, Pride Magazine would like to apologize for the fact that editing of the final article may have left Nia’s comments open to tabloid manipulation. As Europe’s premier publication for the woman of colour, Pride seek only to celebrate the achievements of celebrities such as Nia Long and Beyonce Knowles, and hope no offense has been caused through the media speculation.
ETA Nia Long's original statement:
“I didn’t see ‘Obsessed,’ so I can’t comment, but it’s just not about how talented you are anymore. It’s about, ‘How much box-office revenue will this person generate?’ When you see certain people – we won’t name names – they just don’t have the skill, and no one in their team has said, ‘You need acting classes,’”
She also goes on to say, “If you’re a singer not an actress, you should sing. If you’re a rapper, you should rap,” “If you take time to develop your craft, God bless you. Jamie Foxx is an example of both [actor and singer].”
She then adds “If you were able to take all the Black actresses and the choices we’ve made collectively, it’s a pure reflection of what you see on film. People need to work. But the content? The opportunities for Black actresses are more widespread today, but the quality has suffered.”
she shouldn't have opened her mouth in the FIRST PLACE. don't be jelly, be jam sis. it's not Beyonce's fault her name brings in money.

If Zachary Quinto isn't careful he'll wind up on America's Most Wanted one day. The Star Trek star found himself answering to cops recently while filming an upcoming Funny or Die video at L.A. bakery Kiss My Bundt.
In the comedy bit, he plays a pistol-wielding robber.
"When someone saw Zach hold up a real gun and scream, 'This is a goddamn hold up!' they called the police," Bundt owner Chrysta Wilson tells us.
And get this, the cops were called a second time during another take of the same scene. Wilson said she's not surprised the make-believe drama appeared to be real...
"Zachary is scary as hell," she says. "I was in the back, making batter, and he was running through the script. All I could hear was, 'Nobody f--king move!' He plays evil very well."
Quinto and director Hank Nelken realized they better tone things down if they wanted to get their work done.
"They knew if the cops were called again, the set was going to be shut down," Wilson says. "They were whispering their lines in the alley. They knew they had to nail it on the last take."
I don't know why this makes me laugh so hard. The only way it could have been better is if he'd been wearing the butcher costume...

(...)when MTV News was in Las Vegas for the kickoff of Blink's reunion tour, (Mark Hoppus) decided that he should interview Motion City Soundtrack — the night's opening act, and a band he's worked with in the past — because, you know, he can!
"I just worked with them and produced their new record, which is titled My Dinosaur Life," Hoppus said right off the bat. "Is that what it's called?"
"I think so," MCS frontman Justin Pierre responded, a little bit dumbfounded. "Currently we're having inter-band discussions between This Dinosaur Life, My Dinosaur Life, This Is My Dinosaur Life, His Dinosaur Life, Her Dinosaur Life, Their Dinosaur Lives. But I'm partial to My."
"I think My is good," Hoppus shot back. "Can we firm it up right now? My Dinosaur Life."
And firmed up it was. So, having just shocked the band into revealing one closely guarded secret, Hoppus got right to work on prying another bit of information from the band: Perhaps getting them to say something shocking about the new record? (What we in the biz call the "pull quote.") And once again, he struck gold.
"I think it's an awesome record," guitarist Joshua Crain said. "It's definitely a step up. Not that Commit This to Memory [the band's breakthrough 2005 effort] is a bad record, I love that record. I just feel that we got a little more aggro on this one."

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's ... New Moon Author Stephenie Meyer!
The creative force behind The Twilight Saga, Stephenie Meyer has been selected for membership into a very exclusive club. Joining the ranks of Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Princess Diana, Meyer will be immortalized in the comic book series Female Force.
The bio comic will examine Meyer's rise to popularity with the Twilight Saga novels, the movie franchise, and her plans for the future. We have it on good authority that the story will be narrated by a very recognizable and iconic vampire. (We're guessing it won't be Lestat.) An alternate 40-page collector's edition will also include a history of Forks, Washington.
Bluewater Productions, the publisher behind the Female Force series, aims for the comics to offer "a broad examination of strong and influential women who are shaping modern history and culture." Stephenie Meyer's comic book treatment will "tell her story in a very fun, respectful, and unique way," says Bluewater's President Darren G. Davis.
Expect to see Female Force: Stephenie Meyer on shelves near the release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon in theaters on November 20, 2009.

A federal jury today ordered a Boston University graduate student to pay four record labels $675,000 in damages for illegally downloading 30 songs and sharing them online, in only the second such lawsuit to go to trial. After deliberating about three hours, the jury in US District Court in Boston concluded that Joel Tenenbaum, a 25-year-old doctoral student in physics, "willfully'' infringed on the copyrights of 30 songs, including Nirvana's "Comes As You Are'' and Nine Inch Nails' "The Perfect Drug." The jury award the record labels $22,500 for each infringement.

July 31 (Bloomberg) -- Japan’s candidate for the 2009 Miss Universe pageant will make adjustments to her costume after the black kimono outfit she had chosen was criticized as too revealing.
“Considering the opinions we got from many supporters and other people concerned, we decided to make the hemline of the costume longer,” IBG Japan, which operates the local Miss Universe contest, said on a posting yesterday on its Web site.
Emiri Miyasaka, a 25-year-old from Tokyo, who won Japan’s preliminary contest in May, disclosed her official costume, created by French designer Ines Ligron and Japan’s Yoshiyuki Ogata, on July 22. The pageant organizer and designers received complaints from more than 2,000 people, including one who said the kimono looked like “something a prostitute might wear,” according to a report today in the Sankei newspaper.
Miss Universe will be chosen in Bahamas on August 23.

THE SKINNY: At the TCAs for Fox, writer/director/creator of DOLLHOUSE, Joss Whedon, gave us a sneak peak at what the surprising second season of the show will be bring.
And for Whedon, it is an amazing thing he is even involved in a second season. “This is the biggest surprise of my entire career, season two,” Whedon says. “I didn’t expect to be sitting here for a while.”
But after getting over the initial shock, Whedon says he went quickly to work on season two, specifically building to give Echo, played by Eliza Dushku, a sense of purpose and to ground her more.
Whedon says that in season two, Echo realizes she’s a person who exists and during a mission discovers there is something that she actually wants. He also said to expect Echo to be far less passive than in season one and that the entire second season takes place three months after the first season finale.
As far as the unaired finale to the show – taped with the expectation that the show would not be renewed – “Epitaph One,” Whedon say it now presents a problem of serving two masters. Those people who have seen it and know the future and those that haven’t seen it. “Epitaph” was set 10 years into the future and actually is what happens in the show, he says. Now they are dealing with everything that happened in-between that bleak future.
Whedon also commented on the status of Amy Acker on the show saying that because she has signed on to another TV show, she will only be in a few episodes in the second season.
Hugh Jackman's representative has dismissed rumours that he will star opposite Miley Cyrus in a new project loosely based on The Bodyguard.
The Wolverine star and Cyrus sparked speculation of a collaboration after they were allegedly seen enjoying a business lunch together in California last month.
However, a spokesperson for Jackman told Gossip Cop that the report is "totally false" and that there are no plans to remake the romantic drama.
It had been suggested that the venture, tentatively titled Personal Security, would see Jackman playing a police detective hired to guard a spoiled teenage heiress.
We are receiving reports that Drake has been injured at his latest concert, “America’s Most Wanted” in Camden.
UPDATE: According to witnesses, Drake and Lil Wayne were performing “Best I Ever Had” when Drake was moving across the stage and did a spin move…he must have turned his already-injured knee while spinning, because Drake suddenly collapsed on the stage. “He put his head down because he was in so much pain,” and then 4 guys ran out on the stage and had to carry him off. Lil Wayne was left onstage in a state of confusion.
Drake told MTV: “I didn’t really get any approval from my doctor, but I made a personal decision 48 hours ago that I’d be letting a lot of people down if I didn’t show up and at least show them I’m there for them…”
“I’m not doing my own set. That’s one thing I have to apologize to my fans about. It’s too much of a risk, if I hit that wrong turn [doing] 30 minutes every night. If I tear my ACL again, the doctors say I might not be able to walk again. I have to be cautious.”
