Just how rich are the Harry Potter kids? + a peek at Daniel Radcliffe's posh Manhattan apartment

Thanks to ecctv for being patient with this when this was showing as a "blank post" a million times :D *hugs* :)


£50m Harry Potter stars now worth Hogwads




Her new film is the hit of the summer. She's bagged a top modelling contract and has a cool £12million in the bank - not bad going for a girl who is still in her teens.

And recently, actress Emma Watson, 19, splashed out £3million on a swanky North London townhouse.

But she's not the only Harry Potter star to make a fortune. The success of the films has turned the child stars into some of the richest young people in showbusiness with a combined wealth of £50million. And with two more Potter films to go, the journey is only just starting for Emma and her co-stars, Daniel Radcliffe, 20, Rupert Grint, 20, and Tom Felton, 21.

Here's the rundown on how much these young stars have earned - and what they have spent their millions on.

Way to go, you four! *high-five*

QUESTION though:
Why does Emma have £12m but Rupert only has £7m?
I understand that Dan is worth more than twice Emma or Rupert coz he appears in almost all the scenes in HP, but is she getting paid that much more than Rupert for Harry Potter?
Or is the extra money all from modelling?
I was just assuming that their earnings should at least be at the same level & not roughly $10million apart since Rupert has done more films.

Harry Potter’s luxurious Manhattan digs


Daniel Radcliffe, the actor, owns this 2,450-square-foot penthouse at 1 Morton Square in the Far West Village, facing the Hudson River.

He paid $4.9 million for it in February 2008, but it’s likely to be worth less than that today, with average home prices in NYC down more than 20 percent.

But when you’re Harry, who cares?

Radcliffe’s corner three-bedroom apartment is all luxury, with amazing views of New York Harbor, marble and granite surfaces and a 500-bottle wine cellar.

In the wake of Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein’s death on Friday, one question has been looming about his final project, Gone Too Far, a reality-TV drug intervention series on MTV. Simply: Will the show ever see the light of day?

An MTV spokesperson told EW on Aug. 31 that “no decision has been made yet” on whether it will air. It’s a sticky situation for MTV, to say the least, seeing as how the cause of Goldstein’s death remains inconclusive and could possibly have been related to drugs. Gone Too Far was originally slated for an Oct. 5 premiere.

EW received a rough cut of Gone Too Far’s first episode from MTV just days before Goldstein’s death. The premiere episode features Goldstein attempting to help a 20-year-old heroin addict, Gina (pictured), who spends $200 a day on drugs. Our preview of the episode is after the jump.

Shania Twain is Getting an Upgrade.




LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Country singer Shania Twain is feeling like a woman again, returning to the spotlight with a new man by her side after her marriage broke up last year.

Twain, 44, separated from her husband of 14 years, record producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, just over a year ago after he had an affair, ending a highly lucrative partnership in which Lange produced the Canadian star's three blockbuster albums.

But after largely disappearing from the public eye for a year, Twain is back, set to appear as a guest judge on television singing contest "American Idol" during auditions this week.

Paramore's Hayley Williams Writes tl:dr LiveJournal Entry About Clothing, AFI, Tegan Quin, and More

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Hayley Williams of Paramore wrote a tl;dr LiveJournal entry at paramoreband. In the midst of her inability to use a "Shift" key, as I was reading it, it was pretty lulzy (to read at 3 a.m. at least).   Here is her entry in full glory with the Cliff's Notes version below:

On Clothes and Makeup: i'm a girl, it's all fun and games for me.

On Her Style: i've worn some dumb lookin' shiiiz in the past few years. from time to time, i look like the product of an accidental one night stand between some cyndi lauper impersonator and a cross dressing teenage gwennabe.

On Her Celebrity Crush, Tegan: tegan (yes, tegan quinn - my celebrity crush) told me if you dress like a teenage boy you pretty much never age. so, i guess i'm going to look 12 for most of the rest of my life? great.

On Designer Clothes: most everything i like is pretty affordable and i hardly ever wear designer brand clothing... maybe i'll grow up one day? but for now... i like cheap, second hand, one of a kind, sick, stupid, comic book like clothing.

On Punk Clothing: you're into punky type clothing... check out Dogpile. (www.dogpilecloze.com) Dogpile makes the red plaid pants that i've been wearing...check out their clothes if you're into any of this stuff

On Her Favorite Band When Younger: when i was younger and my favorite band was AFI (can't wait for their new album CrashLove). [Her favorite song is] "dancing through sunday". sounds like misfits, to me. my favorite record will always be Sing The Sorrow even though most diehards like the albums prior to that.

On How To Dress Like A Pin-Up Girl and Not Look Like Katy Perry: if you like older styles that venture into more of the pin-up look but you don't want to look like you raided Katy Perry's closet, you can check out www.babygirlboutique.com.

On Miley Cyrus: don't forget about Miley's clothing line in Wal-Mart. dead. serious. good quality tees and tanks... and if you're brave enough, there are some more daring items in the line.

Destiny's Child to Reunite in 2010.



DESTINY'S CHILD TO REUNITE

R'n'B trio Destiny's Child are set to reunite in 2010, according to singer Michelle Williams.

The sexy R'n'B trio - consisting of Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams - are planning to get back together in 2010. Michelle told Britain's News of the World newspaper: "It definitely will happen. We're sisters, we love each other and we want to work on the future of Destiny's Child."

The 'Survivor' hitmakers split in 2005 to pursue solo careers. Rumours they were reforming began circulating earlier this month, when it was revealed they were contractually obliged to produce another album. A source said: "They still have another album they owe their label, Columbia Records, on their contract."

The trio will reportedly head back into the studio to record their new album when 'Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)' singer Beyonce finishes her current tour to promote her latest solo album 'I Am Sasha Fierce'.

Dr. Drew talked DJ AM this morning, KROQ-FM (streams)

The AM DJs just said he would be on in the next hour

Source: my ears and KROQ

*ETA01*
It aired around 7:30. Might repeat between 9am-10am PDT, and will probably be posted on the station website:

Podcast link

I recorded it on my webcam, but it's too long to post on YouTube
Highlights:

- "He was a very good friend of mine and a great guy. Example of selfless giving"
- Shifty from was on Sober House and will be on SoberHouse2. Dr Drew referred Shifty to AM to help him (Shifty) return to sobriety. He spoke with Shifty a couple of days ago and told him, "Now it's you man" (to be the support/mentor for people just enterring sobriety)

- From what he's been hearing, DJ AM developed PTSD from crash, was prescribed with anxiety-order medication, which will probably retriggered his addictive behavior (Dr. Drew said he was misquoted in AP; he never said "pain killer" he said "anti-anxiety medicine")

- How do you go from anti-anxiety meds to crack pipe?
Any medication which activates that part of the brain, will motivate you to think and do things you wouldn't do otherwise. You can't stay sober on anti-anxiety medication. You may be OK for a while, but eventually it will EXPLODE.
I cannot tell you how much this hurts me. He was just a great guy. He set up my MySpace page*
He was on LoveLine, and Dr Drew complimented him on the shoes he was wearing. The next day AM showed up with a pair of shoes for Dr. Drew. Drew told him he didn't have to do it but AJ said, "this is how I stay sober, being a servant every day. Today you are the object of my service."

What it must be like to be Travis right now?
(long pause, Dr Drew, voice cracks a little when he replies)
- It's probably just like me, this guy gets under your skin. It will leave a large hole in Travis's live
- DJ Am's putting out Travis' flames would be totally consistent with his philosophy of service
- Probably the reason that Travis got back into Blink182 (gave Travis support). Travis's relationship with his ex-wife is better now, thanks to the support he got from AM
- More concerned by Mandy Moore, she seems more shattered by his death.

*ETA02*
* about the "MySpace" comment: Dr. Drew didn't say it explicitly but I think he meant that DJ AM knew Drew well enough to be able to design a MS page that represented what Dr. Drew wanted it to do/be.

*ETA03*
The podcast is up at the KROQ website, but it's for the entire show, not the segment with Dr. Drew
I have uploaded the interview to SendSpace as a .WMV file: Link

Marcin Wasilewski suffers horrible leg injury



Horror Injury Sidelines Anderlecht Defender Wasilewski
The Polish defender will be unavailable for about a year due to a broken leg

Sep 1, 2009 12:20:18 PM

Highly rated Anderlecht defender Marcin Wasilewski is facing at least twelve months on the sidelines after he suffered a horrific leg injury against Standard Liege on Sunday.

An incident in the 24th minute of the 1-1 Jupiler League draw saw the 29-year-old right-back's lower leg broken after a reckless challenge by Standard midfielder Axel Witsel, who was subsequently sent off for the tackle.

Wasilewski underwent temporary surgery on Sunday night on multiple open fractures of the calf and tibia and faces a further operation later this week.

"The medical team cleaned the open wound as well as possible. That is, because of the nature of the injury, there is a high risk of infection. Therefore, Marcin will be given antibiotics during the next few days. The purpose of that treatment is to make sure that he can be operated on definitively in the course of this week," Louis Kinnen, head of Anderlecht's medical staff, told Sporza.

Witsel's hefty challenge has resulted in furious reactions throughout Belgium and the young midfielder probable faces a long ban for his misconduct on the pitch.

Nick Jonas: It's a "Compliment" to be "the Butt" of Russell Brand's Jokes

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The Jonas Bros won't be attending the MTV VMAs this year -- but that's not because Russell Brand is hosting again.

The guys were slammed by the British comic for wearing purity rings and remaining virgins in 2008, but they don't hold it against him. Nick says he wouldn't mind -- too much -- if Brand digs on him and his brothers again.

"As far as his comments were concerned, what we said from the beginning was that he seemed to run out of material -- but if we're the butt of his jokes, it's kind of a compliment in a bizarre way," he tells the BBC.

Hosting the show, which airs Sept. 13, is "great for him," Nick adds. "He has form and ultimately he does a great job.

"We hope he has a good time this year,"
Nick goes on.

Pink, Taylor Swift and Green Day are expected to perform.

"My pager's actually ringing crazy right now so people prolly calling me telling me they pretty much like it. I can tell by how my pager rings if a song is good or not."

Smoking Section

So, for those of you who gave in to temptation and downloaded it, what did you think??
Personally, I went in with REALLY low expectations, so I was pleasantly surprised. Is it a classic? No. But it's ok. I'm going to look at it more like a Blueprint 2, than the original Blueprint.

Shanna Moakler Fires Back at Carrie Prejean's Lawsuit

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
As legal battles go, it's sash and burn.

Fallen beauty queen Carrie Prejean sued the Miss California USA pageant and co-executive director Shanna Moakler on Monday alleging religious discrimination, drawing a sharp rebuke from Moakler's camp.

"On Ms. Moakler's behalf, I can say unequivocally that Ms. Prejean's lawsuit is without merit," says Mel Avanzado, Moakler's lawyer.

"More importantly, as everyone who watched or read her public statements is well aware, Ms. Prejean's unfortunate and bigoted statements are responsible for any public humiliation or damages to her reputation that she has claimed to have suffered," Avanzado added. "Ms. Moakler strenuously denies that she did anything wrong and looks forward to proving that in a court of law."

Prejean was fired in June by pageant officials who cited missed scheduled appearances. But an attorney for Prejean says his client was ousted because of her anti-gay marriage stance. In April, during the Miss USA pageant, she stated that marriage should be between a man and a woman.

Prejean, 22, is also suing for libel and slander, and also names co-executive director Keith Lewis and publicist Roger Neal in the lawsuit.

Katie Price (aka Jordan) tragically reveals she was raped

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Katie Price has tragically revealed she was raped as a young woman. The OK! columnist opened up in a world exclusive after reading false rumours her boyfriend, Alex Reid, starred in a porn film involving a rape scene.

She told us: “I was appalled by the headlines claiming he’s [Alex] taken part in something which glorifies rape. This is completely untrue.

“Rape is a subject very close to my own heart. I was raped when I was younger, more than once. Needless to say, I’d never be associated with anything or anyone so sick.

And our girl says she wasn’t the only person devastated by the vicious stories.

She added: “I’ve never talked about this before, but I feel I have to now because I was so hurt by these accusations that I would not take a subject, which affects so many women, seriously.

“Someone who was close to Alex was also raped and he is as horrified as I am by these claims. I urge any woman who has been affected by rape and needs help to talk to somebody they trust about it.”

Apparently, there's a whole Twilight line of cosmetics and the website has officially launched...

"Twilight Beauty, a new cosmetics brand themed after the series of films from Summit Entertainment, will launch two lines debuting this Fall: Luna Twilight and Volturi Twilight. The two lines will be available in conjunction with the release of the second film, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” which arrives in theaters on November 20, 2009.

The goal for Twilight Beauty was to create two beautiful and striking lines that women could fall in love with, much in the same way they fell in love with the Twilight saga. The hope is that, beyond the lure of its edgy, sophisticated packaging, true makeup consumers will find they have discovered products they can’t live without."

DJ AM was going to check himself into rehab....

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Celebrity spinner DJ AM confessed to falling off the wagon and pledged to check himself into rehab just hours before his death, friends told investigators.

The sad revelation emerged yesterday as pals and probers described a drug-filled final day for the nightclub star, who was found dead in his Manhattan apartment on Friday.

DJ AM, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, had been missing appointments and acting erratically in recent weeks -- behavior that so worried his West Coast manager and recovery sponsor that they jumped on a red-eye Wednesday night to confront him at his SoHo apartment Thursday morning, pals have told law-enforcement officials.

When they arrived, an agitated Goldstein stubbornly refused to see his manager -- but allowed the sponsor inside.

That's when Goldstein lit up a crack pipe and popped pills in front of his horrified pal, investigators told The Post.

Goldstein then promised his sponsor and manager that he'd check himself into a rehab clinic in California after making a scheduled gig in Las Vegas on Friday night, friends told law-enforcement officials. But he never made that performance, at the Palms Casino Resort in Sin City.

When Goldstein missed the flight to Las Vegas on Friday and didn't return phone calls, friends brought cops to his apartment, where they found Goldstein dead from an apparent overdose.

Goldstein's apartment was littered with small plastic bags filled with painkillers Vicodin and oxycodone and anti-anxiety medications Xanax and lorazepam, sources told The Post.

Results of toxicology tests are still weeks away and a spokeswoman for the medical examiner said a precise cause of death could not be immediately determined.

Handlers have said that Goldstein suffered a paralyzing fear of flying.

The celebrity spinner, who barely survived a deadly plane crash last year, was constantly begging doctors for anti-anxiety medication, friends told investigators.


Cops found just one bottle of properly marked prescription drugs in his apartment, a medication for diarrhea, sources said.

Goldstein also had over-the-counter medications to fight allergies and stomach acid, according to law-enforcement officials.

Teen Wolf....The MTV Version

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MTV's reinvention of the 1980s movie Teen Wolf is moving forward, says The Hollywood Reporter. The 1985 film starred Michael J. Fox as a teenager who discovers he is a werewolf. The MTV version will be set in high school, draw from the horror genre to explore werewolf mythology and include a romantic plot line.

"It has a fresh take and is very different from the original," said Liz Gateley, senior vp MTV series development. "It has more of an 'American Werewolf in Paris' feel to it. It's a dramatic thriller with two best friends in the center who provide a great comedy element: They are two very relatable characters on the outer circles of popular cliques."

The new "Wolf" was written by "Criminal Minds" creator Jeff Davis, who executive produces the pilot with Marty Adelstein (Fox's "Prison Break") and Rene Echevarria (ABC's "Castle").

Your daily dose of Paula/Idol drama

Paula Abdul is heading to Las Vegas for her own show.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

At a Sunday night soiree in Los Angeles to celebrate Lifetime's primetime hit "Drop Dead Diva," which Abdul guest stars on in episodes airing Sept. 13 and Oct. 11, the former "American Idol" judge confirmed the rumors she is about to get her own show in Sin City.

"That will be more… really announced later, when everything's worked (out)," a glowing Abdul told Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson. "It’s going to happen, but the details have yet to be ironed out."

Abdul also confirmed that her former "Idol" executive producer-turned-"So You Think You Can Dance" judge, Nigel Lythgoe, has invited her over to his show, in what appears to be a guest judge role.

"Nigel has offered… I don't know yet," Abdul explained of her reaction to the idea. "I'm a big fan of the show. It's fantastic, and I wouldn't be surprised if I maybe came in and guest judged, but I don’t know the details of any of that."

The triple-threat also broke news that her role as "Judge Paula Abdul" on "Drop Dead Diva" has gone from guest spot to recurring role.

"I've never had more fun," Abdul said of the part, which sees her playing a bedazzled courtroom judge, who gives the show’s heroine, Jane, played by Brooke Elliott, advice during dream-like sequences.

Abdul will also take the stage on Sept. 17 to host VH1's "Divas," which features performances from former "Idols" Kelly Clarkson and Jordin Sparks, and former "Idol" contestant and Oscar-winner, Jennifer Hudson.

"It’s beyond satisfying," Abdul said of how things are coming together post-"Idol." "Everything feels just warm and it feels great and like I'm doing the right thing."

But while she’s moved on from the Fox reality show, Abdul has kept in touch with her former "Idol" family.

"I’ve heard from everyone and I love them all," she said. "I wish them absolutely best. And we check in on each other and see how everything is going. It’s been great."

Simon Cowell, in fact, offered her extra kind words.

"'Love you,'" Abdul said when asked what he last said to her. "I said, 'Love you back.'"


Cowell also reached out to Abdul's mother, who was recently hospitalized.

"My mom, god bless her, she's been in the hospital with pneumonia and Simon surprised her and called her," Abdul said of her mom, who is due to get out of the hospital Monday.

But Abdul did give her mom advice for taking Cowell's call.

"I said, 'Here are the ground rules: You can’t chat for more than a minute.' And she goes, 'I’m fine!'" Abdul laughed. "She's a tough lady, you know. The Abduls are survivors."

Halle Berry pregnant with second child

Halle Berry suffered through the disappointment of more than 30 negative pregnancy tests before finally learning she was expecting her first child, Nahla, in 2007. Luckily, she's had more success with her follow-up attempts to have a baby: Life & Style can exclusively reveal that the actress, who turned 43 on Aug. 14, is three months pregnant with her second child.

"Halle is overjoyed," says an insider close to Halle and the baby's father, model Gabriel Aubry. "The first time, she struggled so much to get pregnant and eventually conceived through in vitro fertilization. This time, the baby was conceived through artificial insemination."

"She's just ecstatic to be pregnant again," the insider tells Life & Style. "She wasn't sure if she'd have another baby, so she's very happy!" A rep for Halle didn't respond to a request for comment.

Rashida Jones and Chris Messina will star in new comedy



Rashida Jones and Chris Messina are getting monogamous.

The emerging stars will topline "Monogamy," an indie romantic comedy that marks the scripted-feature debut of "Murderball" co-director Dana Adam Shapiro.


Described by filmmakers as a "cautionary tale about sex, photography and fear of marriage," the film will center on a young couple's relationship and its trials. Shapiro wrote the script with Evan Wiener.


The movie is expected to unspool on the fest circuit in early 2010.

Shapiro is producing with Jeff Mandel, who also produced "Murderball," as well as Randy Manis, the former ThinkFilm exec who helped release and exec-produced the doc. Tom Heller ("Precious") is also producing. Production on "Monogamy" started this summer in New York.

Shapiro earned acclaim for "Murderball," his story of wheelchair-bound athletes training to compete in the summer Olympics; the pic, which he directed with Henry Alex Rubin, won several prizes at the Sundance Film Festival and was also nominated for the best documentary Oscar.

The Untitled Entertainment-repped hyphenate is also attached to adapt and direct an adaptation of his novel "Every Boy" for Plan B Entertainment and is on board to write "Holler," a racial drama that's set up at Screen Gems. The ICM-repped Wiener co-wrote "Wild Child" with helmer Larry Clark, and is also set to stage his play "The Eichmann Disguise" in New York.

The UTA-repped Jones most recently starred opposite Paul Rudd in bromantic comedy "I Love You, Man" and will star in divorce dramedy "Celeste and Jesse Forever," which she co-wrote with Will McCormack and recently sold to Overture.

The WME-repped Messina has had a number of character turns on the big and small screen, including shows such as "Six Feet Under" and pics like culinary comedy "Julie & Julia." He's next set to star in "Greenberg," Noah Baumbach's drama toplined by Ben Stiller.

David Boreanaz and his wife welcome a girl



David Boreanaz's little angel has arrived. Wife Jaime Bergman delivered the couple's second child, daughter Bardot Vita Boreanaz, on Monday, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

Baby Bardot weighed in at 7 lbs., 14 oz., and joins big brother Jaden Rayne, 7, at home.
The birth comes as a relief to Bones star Boreanaz, who had been staying close to home in case Bergman, who had been on bed-rest, went into labor.
"I must maintain a 20-mile radius. I cannot travel beyond that," the former Angel star, 40, told PEOPLE recently. "If I do, I'll freak out – I have to be there when the baby comes."
Now that Bardot has arrived, the couple can breathe easy.
"We've been trying to have another baby for a couple of years now so we are beyond excited," Bergman, 33, recently told PEOPLE's Celebrity Baby Blog. "We're over the moon.”
The new season of Bones will premiere Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.

Spencer Is Legally Changing His Name to "King Spencer Pratt"



Spencer Pratt has found a new way to royally upset his haters.

The Hills star, 25, tells Usmagazine.com that he is changing his name ... to "King Spencer Pratt."

"I've decided since there is a Queen of England and a Prince William that there should be a king of America," he tells Us. "I nominate myself for that role."

Pratt thinks his wife Heidi Montag deserves a royal title, too.

In a recent interview with The Hills: The After Show, he called her "the new, modern-day, 2010 Michael Jackson," who was famously known as the King of Pop.

"Michael Jackson's in heaven," he said. "The Holy Spirit now has extra Michael Jackson juice, so boom! For all we know, Heidi gets possessed with some of that Michael Jackson divine spirit."

gaga about to blow your mind

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

NYDailyNews.com – Lady Gaga is at it again. The songstress says her outrageous outfits and wacky hair styles may become even wilder in the next few months, regardless of what anyone says.

“Us Weekly putting me on the worst-dressed list? I couldn’t care less,” she says in the latest V mag. “If Karl Lagerfeld called me an ugly hag, then I’d be upset. Because it’s Karl Lagerfeld!”

Among her most scrutinized fashion choices is the now-infamous exploding bra, debuted at a show in Toronto. “I called [my tailor] up from Hawaii, and I was like, ‘We need to make my t- blow up!’” says Gaga. “And he made it happen.”

We wonder what Lagerfeld thought about that accessory.

Aubrey O'Day goes full retard on 'Hannity'



Yes, Aubrey O'Day appeared on Fox News last night and got into a debate about Fidel Castro and Adolf Hitler.

And, granted, she referred to each man as "brilliant," while not remotely condoning either of their actions.

But that shouldn't really be the story. Instead, one has to wonder: What on earth was O'Day doing on air in the first place?!?

This is a woman so desperate for attention that she Tweets nude photos of herself and invents lesbian crushes on various celebrities. Apparently, that makes her qualified to serve as an analyst for Sean Hannity.

She actually sounds more intelligent than the conservative host below, as O'Day can at least recognize gray areas and make a nuanced point. Why can't Castro be both brilliant and an awful human being? Enlighten us, Hannity...



We'd love to hear what Jon Voight has to say about this.

THIS IS A JAMES FRANCO POST.


James Franco and Julia Roberts, more "loving" than eating or praying?





At 41, Julia Roberts is reaping the benefits of becoming a full-fledged cougar after casting a spell on her screen hunk James Franco — who is ten years her junior!

The pair play lovers in the upcoming film Eat, Pray, Love and set tattles claim their script chemistry is manifesting itself in real life.

“James has a massive crush on Julia, and she’s lapping up all the attention,” a spywitness reveals in the Sept.7 issue of Globe. “They’re always laughing and smiling when they’re together and sharing private jokes.”

The Pretty Woman star and Franco, an aspiring writer, have reportedly become inseparable between takes, with the Spider-Man actor adopting the role of eyes, ears, and hand when the cameras aren’t rolling.

“Julia doesn’t need a personal assistant because James is always running off to fetch her bottle of water or cup of coffee and asking if there’s anything she needs.”

Julia has a history of falling for her co-stars; the actress dated Dylan McDermott and Kiefer Sutherland after sharing the screen with the actors.

“James can’t stop bragging about how he gets to make out with Julia nearly every day,” the insider continues. “They even shot a steamy nude sex scene, which rocked his world! He keeps saying if only she was single…..”

Julia — a mother of three — has been married to hubby Danny Moder for seven years.

christina aguilera can't diet

Christina Aguilera never diets — because she loves her food too much!

The Dirrty singer has been trying to get back into shape since giving birth to son Max 19 months ago.

But Aguilera admits it’s a struggle because she can’t stop stuffing her face.

“I don’t diet because I can’t,” she said.

“I love my food too much. I can’t even cut down on carbs because that’s so hard for me.


“So I eat what I like and make sure I work out for an hour when Max goes to bed. It’s hard but it works for me.”

Christina, 28, recently insisted that motherhood doesn’t stop her from feeling sexy.

“Mothers can be very sexy. When I get all glammed up, I am not wearing my mommy hat, but I can feel sexy in just a pair of jeans and a T-shirt,” she said. “I do find it important that, as a mother, you don’t give up on your sexuality.”

detective la toya's new music video


When Detective La Toya dedicated her single "Home" to her brother she said that she wasn't going to do any press for it or make a music video. Weeeeeeeeeeeell, she didn't mean any of that, because here's a video for the song. Toy Toy made it for all of her fans (aka her plastic surgeon and me). The video can be downloaded at iTunes and all proceeds go to the Toy Toy Will Get To The Bottom of Everything Foundation. No, proceeds go to AIDS Project LA.

The video, which I'm pretty sure was directed by Olan Mills, shows a virginal Toy Toy reminiscing about her childhood while trolling around Mimi's "Always Be My Baby" set. It's a truly precious video, but I kept waiting for Joe Jackson to pop out from behind that tree with a switch in his hand.

Hubba hubba! Hubby Hubby ice cream introduced in support of gay marriage



Ben and Jerry's thankfully retained its activist edge after being bought by food giant Unilever in 2000. Now, to mark the legalization of same-sex marriages in Vermont, the ice cream company has changed the name of its popular “Chubby Hubby” ice cream to “Hubby Hubby” for the month of September.

The action was taken in partnership with Freedom to Marry, a marriage equality group.

According to a company press release, Ben & Jerry’s renaming the ice cream “aims to raise awareness of the importance of marriage equality and to encourage other states to follow the blazing trails of Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, and Maine.”

The name change to “Hubby Hubby” is temporary and, for most of the country, largely symbolic. “Hubby Hubby” ice cream will at this point only be sold in Vermont through September.

For those not in the know, Chubby/Hubby Hubby is fudge covered peanut butter filled pretzels in vanilla malt ice cream rippled with fudge and peanut butter.

Get ready for drama!

HQ HERE
Judging by the first official trailer for the new episodes of The Hills, there’s going to be plenty to talk about when the show returns to MTV on Sept. 29.

“She’s the girl that’s going to stab us all in the back and she doesn’t care,” Stephanie Pratt says about Kristin Cavallari’s anticipated return. “How can one person turn all our lives upside down?”


Here’s how: Lauren Conrad’s Laguna Beach rival also dated Brody Jenner, so his Playboy Playmate girlfriend Jayde may need to watch out.

Although Audrina thinks she’s moved on from Justin Bobby, she may not be ready to see him with another girl. And guess what — Kristin also has her eye on Audrina’s ex, who she met at Spencer and Heidi’s wedding.

Speaking of … It looks like Heidi has been bitten by the baby bug! In the trailer, she’s hinting that she may be ready to start a family. Are you ready for a little Speidi offspring? Neither is Spencer, so rest easy — for now!


Heidi and Spencer are also concerned about her sister Holly, who she says may need to head to rehab.

As the trailer wraps with dramatic clips of Kristin stirring up trouble with some fighting words — and a kiss! — the producers of The Hills have a final note about their new star: “The bitch is back.” –Aaron Parsley

Trailer: William S. Burroughs Documentary Looks Crazy Like William S. Burroughs



Writer and legend William S. Burroughs was so far ahead of his time that we don’t know how far ahead of his time he was because we haven’t gotten to his time yet, and if we ever do, it will probably be the end, for us. Surprisingly, this, A Man Within, is the first ever documentary about his life, and interviewees include some pretty big names in outlaw artist circles: John Waters, Gus Van Sant, David Cronenberg, Jello Biafra, Iggy Pop, and Sonic Youth, not to mention Burrough’s lovers and his gun dealer.

As Waters says of the man, “He was the first person who was famous for things you were supposed to hide. He was gay, he was a junkie, he didn’t look handsome, he shot his wife, he wrote poetry about assholes and heroin. He was not easy to like.” Trailer, ATJ:

I have no idea how this man lived to 83. I did not think it was physiological possible to be addicted to heroin for 60 years.

Hoax video of Michael Jackson creates online stir

A hoax video purportedly showing Michael Jackson emerging from a coroner's van was an experiment aimed at showing how quickly misinformation and conspiracy theories can race across the Internet, German broadcaster RTL said Tuesday.

The video was posted by RTL on YouTube for a single day a week ago and received 880,000 hits. The broadcaster has since removed the video from YouTube, but it has been picked up by other Web sites around the world.

"We wanted to show how easily users can be manipulated on the Internet with hoax videos," spokeswoman Heike Schultz of Cologne-based RTL told The Associated Press. "Therefore, we created this video of Michael Jackson being alive, even though everybody knows by now that he is dead — and the response was breathtaking."

Jackson died June 25 in Los Angeles.

The video — posted under an "anonymous source" — shows a coroner's van entering what seems like a parking garage and the King of Pop getting out of the back with another person. The lighting is bad, the sound muffled and the footage appears amateurish.

"Unfortunately, many people believed it was true," Schultz said. "Even though we tried to create the video in a way that every normal user can see right away that it is a fake."

She said the video was shot near Cologne — "definitely not in the U.S." The van in the video had the word "CORONER" printed in English, suggesting it had been recorded in America.

RTL admitted to the hoax in an Aug. 26 report on its daily news show Explosiv.

Hoaxes and rumors commonly spread like wildfire on the Internet. Videos of flying saucers and impossible stunts routinely are among the most-viewed on video-sharing sites, though purported evidence of the deceased being alive is less common than false rumors of someone's death.

The rise of Twitter and its real-time microblogging has quickened the pace. American actor Patrick Swayze, who is battling pancreatic cancer, had to declare that he is still alive this year after thousands of Twitter users spread news that he was dead. Actor Jeff Goldblum had to do the same.

The RTL spokeswoman said some Jackson fans were upset by the German broadcaster's actions.

"We didn't want to dishonor Michael Jackson, but we needed a strong name to get this experiment going," Schultz said. "Had we used Britney Spears, then the fans of Britney would have complained."

Witherspoon 'acts like a good Samaritan'



Actress Reese Witherspoon has reportedly acted like a good Samaritan.

According to Contactmusic, the 33-year-old Oscar winner has reportedly paid a woman's grocery bill at a Whole Foods Store in Los Angeles after she forgot her wallet.

A witness said: "Reese knows that kids make you lose your mind. When she spotted a harried mom who had forgotten her wallet, she picked up the tab.

"The woman was so flustered and embarrassed. But Reese said she would gladly take care of the $70 bill and no apology was necessary."

The witness added: "She told the mom, 'I understand, I have kids too'.

Witherspoon, who is currently dating Jake Gyllenhaal, has two children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.

Natalie Portman Buys A Castle… Ish



Natalie Portman just purchased this “rustic castle-like” historic estate in an exclusive, secluded enclave of LA, reports In Touch. “Natalie wanted a property that had character and integrity, something that was special,” says Richard Stanley, a Coldwell Banker real estate agent in LA who specializes in architectural and historic properties.

“This house is perfect for her,” he says of the gorgeous 1930s-era home that the 28-year-old actress paid more than $3 million for. “It’s a beautiful home and truly is something special. It’s the trophy home of the neighborhood.”

It has four bedrooms and a private courtyard. It also includes two guest houses, perfect for visiting friends from back East, as well as her parents — her father, Avner, a fertility doctor, and her mother (and former agent), Shelley, to whom she credits much of her success. “If my career stops, if I do badly in a role or if one of my movies is a total failure, I know I’ll still have my parents. It helps me not to be afraid and to take risks,” Natalie says.

Although the home is located in a gated community of less than 100 residences, Natalie’s decision to leave her family, sell her trendy Manhattan condo (it fetched nearly $7 million last November) and move to LA surprised her friends. But for the actress and Harvard grad, the timing is perfect, as she’s now ready to take on Hollywood. She’s started a filmmaker-friendly web site, makingof.com, and has launched an LA-based production company named after her dog, Handsomecharlie Films. Plus, she’s set to play the female lead in Thor.

Lena Headey Cast as Cersei in HBO's "Game of Thrones"


 

All the major roles for HBO's "Game of Thones" pilot have been filled in recent weeks -- except one.

 

I can exclusively reveal that Lena Headey, most recently seen as Sarah Connor in Fox's "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," will play Cersei Lannister, a woman of royal blood who is every bit as smart, cunning and devious as the powerful men around her. 
 

Other cast members include the perfectly cast Peter Dinklage as Cersei's brother Tyrion, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Cersei's twin, Jaime, Sean Bean as aristocrat Ned Stark, Jennifer Ehle as his wife Catelyn Stark and Mark Addy as King Robert.

The "Game of Thrones" pilot, an adaptation of a fantasy novel by George R.R. Martin, starts shooting in late October in Northern Ireland.
 

One "Thrones" fan asked me if this level of interest in a pilot that may not show up on TV for a year or more is normal. No, it's not. But Martin's book series tends to inspire a certain kind of deep and abiding loyalty, if not obsession. To read the books of Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series (four have come out so far) is to be completely immersed in a world that recalls the golden age of knights and chivalry while also showing, through memorable and believable characters, how deeply flawed human nature can be. It's a world in which honor and fealty don't mean what they used to and those in power have to contend with an array of threats, sometimes from those closest to them, sometimes from unexpected places.

 

Don't let the fantasy label put you off. This is a book series about human beings, and how they respond to difficult challenges. But OK, there are knights, tournaments, battles, bawdy humor, spectacles and freaky creatures from the icy north. There are also deeply moving relationships and wonderfully detailed locales, all of which kept me turning hundreds of pages all summer.

 

As Time's James Poniewozik has written, "Thrones" is the kind of complicated, richly appointed, adult drama that HBO tends to do well. Martin "constantly forces you to question whether the 'honorable' resolution to a conflict is the best in the long run. The saga is littered with fallen heroes and shattered myths, as well as apparent villains and rogues who make surprising turns," Poniewozik writes.

 

In short, if this "Thrones" adaptation is at least as good as HBO's "Rome," I'll be glued to it. Here's where I inject the note of caution: At this point, "Thrones" is just a pilot and it has not yet been picked up to series. Fingers crossed that its every bit as good as Martin's many fans hope it will be and we spend 2010 obsessing about HBO's cool new show.

As exclusively revealed by Chicago Tribune televison critic Maureen Ryan, British actress Lena Headey has been cast as Cersei Lannister in the pilot of Game of Thrones. Headey is best known for her appearance in 300 and more recntly as the star of Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles. Ryan, a critic who has been very vocal in her support for Thrones, also has a great write-up about the series in general.

Winter Is Coming: Awesome news. Headey is the big name that can carry this series. She has enormous amounts of geek cred thanks to her appearances in 300 and Sarah Conner Chronicles. She is undoubtedly beautiful. The only hesitation one might have would be in her coloring. It is on the darker side, so we'll have to see how she looks as a blonde. I don't think that will be too big of a problem though. I know a lot of people wanted Tricia Helfer as Cersei, but what we got might be even better.

Anyone who usually says "I'm not sure what this will be about" should REALLY read the top source. She does an amazing job of summing it up well.

ALSO, rumors HEAVILY suggest that Rory McCann is The Hound, but since there's no official announcement, no post yet :( But here's a source for that, a picture of him and his iMDB.

edit - My one concern is that, even though they're fraternal twins, they don't look very "twin-ny". I'm not OVERLY concerned with it, but they're going to have to tone down NCW's nose with makeup.

WHITNEY DISASTER: Blames 'Oprah' for Bad Central Park Performance...

Whitney Houston loses voice, cracks through Central Park 'GMA' concert - then blames Oprah





Image and video hosting by TinyPic


It was one moment in time that she just wasn't ready for.

Whitney Houston struggled with her voice during her much-hyped comeback performance on "Good Morning America" Tuesday.

The Grammy-winning diva apologized to the 5,000-person crowd for overusing her famous pipes before taking the stage in Central Park to promote her new album "I Look to You."

"I'm so sorry. I did 'Oprah.' I've been talking for so long. ... I talked so much, my voice," she said, trailing off.

"I shouldn't be talking. I should be singing," she said before breaking into her final, crowd-pleasing number, "I'm Every Woman."

Fans, who came from as far away as Australia and arrived in line as early as 10 p.m. Monday, boisterously sang along with her.

While "Good Morning America" only planned to have Houston sing three songs, some fans were hoping to hear more from the songstress.

"I expected it to be longer. She couldn't sing. She was really damaged," said Joao Andrade, 28, of North Bergen, N.J. "I'm a little disappointed. I think she was brave to come out with no voice."

The crowd, though, was firmly behind Houston, whose alleged drug addiction and troubled marriage to Bobby Brown have overshadowed her musical career for nearly a decade.

john krasinski and emily blunt want a short engagement



“They’ve told their friends and family that this isn’t going to be a long engagement,” a source tells In Touch. “They have to schedule [the wedding] pretty tightly around his work on The Office. He only gets two breaks a year from shooting — at Christmas and in late March. Emily’s going full speed into wedding planning mode. She’s interested in starting a family, so there’s really not a lot of time to waste sitting around.”

John, 29, and his 26-year-old British fiancée are reportedly hoping to tie the knot in his hometown of Boston before the end of the year. Bound to get her wedding invite is Emily’s The Devil Wears Prada co-star Anne Hathaway, who actually set the couple up last November.

“Anne is thrilled,”
says the source. “She has been a huge cheerleader of John and Emily’s relationship.”

Good luck, I guess. I don't really understand the rush...I thought they were going to be engaged for a while before they actually tied the knot. I just can't imagine getting married to someone I've only known for a year or two. I hope it all works out for them, though.

Was it a suicide or an accident?

Authorities investigating the death of DJ AM have found that he had eight undigested OxyContin pills in his stomach and a ninth in his mouth, a law enforcement source tells PEOPLE.

The finding suggests that DJ AM – real name Adam Goldstein – swallowed the powerful painkillers quickly. "He wanted to die," says the source, who says the suicide theory is supported by the pills and other evidence. "He was going unconscious when he took the last one. He didn't even swallow it."

Patrick Wolf pleads for return of cape lost at festival


Singer's outfit has gone walkies

September 1, 2009

Patrick Wolf has made a plea for the return of his vulture-style cape after it went missing over the summer festival period.

Writing on MySpace.com/patrickwolf, the singer explained that he last saw the garment (pictured) at the Underage Festival in London's Victoria Park last month.

Wolf is offering a "cash reward" for its safe return, and is asking anyone with any information about where it might be to drop him a MySpace.com message.

"No jokes about it flying off, please," he wrote on the site.

Patrick Wolf played at the Reading And Leeds Festivals over the weekend (August 28-30), playing on the NME/Radio 1 stage.

danny gokey got a record deal y'all


American Idol's bespectacled third-place finisher, Danny Gokey, has cut a record deal with 19 Recordings/RCA Nashville, marking the first time in the show's history that Idol's recording arm has signed the entire final four.

Contracts for winner Kris Allen, runner-up Adam Lambert and fourth-place finisher Allison Iraheta were announced in June.

"We absolutely love Danny," says Sony Music Nashville chairman Joe Galante, who praises the "soulful edge" in the 29-year-old singer's gravelly voice. "We haven't had anybody like that (in country) since Ronnie Milsap or T. Graham Brown."

Though no producer is attached to Gokey's album yet, he'll go into a Nashville studio shortly after the Idols Live tour ends Sept. 15. Galante expects a single in late fall and an album to follow, most likely in March.
 

When Gokey was on Idol, "I was so wet behind the ears, I didn't know where I wanted to go," the singer says. "But I most related to the message and the music of country."

Gokey sang three country tunes during his Idol run and is performing Rascal Flatts' What Hurts the Most and My Wish on tour. He counts Wynonna Judd, Alan Jackson and Brooks & Dunn among his favorite country acts.
 

Idol's track record as a reliable generator of mainstream hits has become more appealing as album sales continue to slide. Eleven Idol alumni now have singles in the top 40 at some radio format, and three —Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Chris Daughtry— are among the few acts that have sold more than half a million albums this year.
 

Any of Season 8's final four could have won, and they all deserve their deals, says music consultant Tom Vickers, a former A&R executive. "Each had the chops, the personality," he says. "Each was distinctly different."
 

Last week, Allen announced via Twitter that his album would arrive Nov. 17. As he did on the show, Allen could combine blue-eyed soul and singer/songwriter pop on his album, since he's been working with The Fray's Joe King, Mat Kearney and R&B writers Claude Kelly and Salaam Remi.

Release dates for Lambert's and Iraheta's albums are planned for November but have not yet been set. Lambert has promised a mix of glam-rock and dance music in his collaborations with RedOne, Max Martin, Linda Perry and Greg Wells, and the teenage Iraheta aims for an energetic rock sound and writing with Kevin Rudolf and David Hodges.

ontd, who do you think will have the most successful album: kris, adam, allison, or danny ? better question: who will be the first to get dropped ??

Every week in our Worldwide Wednesday post, Complex pays tribute to the cornucopia of women from around the globe. We try our best to represent all nationalities and ethnicities, but there’s one crucial group of women we haven’t focused on yet that everyone can agree on: multiracial women. Globalization never looked so good!

See, in the future, everyone will be multiracial. But for now, we’ll have to appreciate these pioneering dimes, who all have ancestors from multiple continents. Since one of our favorite chicks Cassie—who is African-American, Mexican, West Indian and Filipino—turns 23 today, we thought it would be a fitting time to pay tribute to this often-overlooked sub-set of sexy. Throw on your pro-miscegenation t-shirts, pull up a chair and enjoy our picks for The 10 Hottest Multiracial Women…

Scarlett Johansson has reportedly revealed that her upbringing was strict.

According to Contactmusic, the 24-year-old confessed that she was banned from going to parties or dating boys by her mother Melanie Sloan.

She said: "There were rules. My mother not only told me not to go out with actors but not even to go out."

A friend of the actress recently claimed that rumours of fights between Johansson and husband Ryan Reynolds are "ridiculous".

Carmen Electra Sets Album Release



Carmen Electra in collaboration with One Seven returns to the music scene with her album C-17 on October 13th. "Who Do You Think You Are", Carmen's first single off the new album is a smoldering, hard hitting duet primed to detonate on pop radio.

Few of Electra's fans are aware that she is an accomplished and versatile singer who expertly oscillates between seductive crooning and salacious rapping. One Seven was aware of her earlier work with Prince, and after seeing her perform with the Pussycat Dolls, he was inspired to write a record for her. "We both lived in Hollywood and met at a party," Electra remembers. "The tracks he sent me were really good. I've always loved cutting edge up-tempo music. It was fun going to his studio and recording songs with no pressure, nobody telling you what to say."

Electra's second album allowed her to return to her roots in music and gave her the opportunity to showcase her affection for unapologetically raunchy club bangers. An unpredictable fusion of electro-pop and hip-hop, C-17 offers a fresh palette of sounds, from the dizzying beat assaults of "Bobbin'" and "While The Light Was On" to the deliciously lurid innuendo of "Jimmy High" (C-17's second single and remixed by popular New York DJs Star Killers).

"Most of the songs are gritty and intense up-tempo tracks," One Seven says. Electra adds, "'Who Do You Think Are' is a little darker. I see girls all the time that I used to audition with, and now they're in very different situations. There are so many young girls who get hooked up with the darker side of Hollywood."

A Master Class On How To Make Me Watch Glee



Josh Groban, Victor Garber Visit 'Glee'

Fox has released some photos from Glee's third episode, "Acafellas," airing Sept. 16. The photos give us a first look at guest stars Josh Groban and Victor Garber.

Groban, who plays himself, once visited the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills while I was working there and couldn't have been nicer.

Garber plays Will's father and I can't wait to hear him song. It was truly a highlight when he sang and danced on Eli Stone. It's one of the things I miss most about the canceled ABC series. Someone needs to get Loretta Devine on Glee.

Here's the official episode description from Fox:
Will forms the Acafellas, an all-male acapella vocal group, and spends more time building his own confidence than he does with the glee club. In Will's absence, the glee club decides to hire a well-known choreographer to help coach them to Nationals. Meanwhile, Mercedes is bitten by the love bug, but her feelings aren't reciprocated. When the Acafellas perform for the P.T.A., they get a surprise visit backstage from Josh Groban (guest-starring as himself) in the "Acafellas" episode of GLEE.

Fox: 'I'm schizophrenic'

Sexy Megan Fox has a secret she's been hiding from her legions of fans - she suffers "bouts of schizophrenia."


The Transformers star admits she has struggled with mental health problems since her youth, and, although she hasn't been officially diagnosed, she is convinced she shows symptoms of the serious psychiatric condition, which often torments suffers with auditory hallucinations, paranoid delusions and social dysfunction.

The 23 year old reveals she has spent years meticulously studying the life of movie legend Marilyn Monroe, who died of a drug overdose at the age of 36 - because she fears her own problems may lead her to a similar end.

She tells Wonderland magazine, "I basically read every book ever written about Marilyn Monroe. I could end up like that because I constantly struggle with the idea that I think I'm a borderline personality - or that I have bouts of mild schizophrenia.

"I definitely have some kind of mental problem and I haven't pinpointed what it is."

Muhammad Ali is Not Dead, Goes to Ireland

Welcome back to Ireland, Muhammad O'Li: Boxing legend Ali thrills 10,000 with visit to home of his Irish great-grandfather


Boxing legend: Muhammad Ali with his wife Lonnie (left) in Ennis, County Clare, Ireland unveiling the plaque to his ancestors after he was honoured as the first Freeman of his ancestral home

He fixed his eyes in a steely gaze, raised his mighty fists and made a crowd of 10,000 roar.

Okay, so it wasn’t exactly the electric atmosphere he created with the Thrilla in Manila or the Rumble in the Jungle.

But the rapturous reception Muhammad Ali received in a small Irish town yesterday provided a spine-tingling reminder of those glory days.

It came as he unveiled a plaque to his little-known Irish ancestors in Ennis, County Clare.

Ali’s great-grandfather, Abe Grady, who hailed from the town, emigrated to the U.S. in the 1860s, and in recognition of his roots Ali was yesterday made the first Honorary Freeman of Ennis.

It was his first visit there and with the confidence that typified his sporting career, he was almost immediately talking of a comeback, despite medical advice against travelling.

MUSIC legend Phil Spector is being moved out of the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility & State Prison in Corcoran after complaining he feared for his safety. He's been told he'll be moved to Pleasant Valley State Prison in Coalinga this week. But Spector, who was convicted of killing Lana Clarkson, is terrified he'll die there because of an outbreak of Valley Fever, which has killed 16 inmates in the last four years. His frantic wife, Rachelle Short, told Page Six: "They are sending Phil there to die. He is scared to death. When I saw him on Saturday, he was shaking . . . He's 70 years old and 130 pounds . . . We are trying to appeal over this, but he's been told he has no time. He's already been given his bus pass out of Corcoran." Valley Fever is caused by a fungus that resides in soil and is released as spores. A Pleasant Valley rep said, "We cannot comment on prisoners who may be moved here in the future."

SNL's New Castmembers


It’s September, which means the countdown to the return of network stalwarts is underway – and for comedy nerds, the return of Saturday Night Live on September 26, 2009, is eagerly awaited. Last year saw the departure of Amy Poehler from SNL in a rhyme-dropping big-bellied moose-busting finale, and Kristen Wiig took the mantle of female MVP, clocking by far the most screen time of any cast member last season. This season, she’ll have some relief: two new cast members, comediennes Jenny Slate and Nasim Pedrad.
