Lohan expands 6126 line



You have to admire Lindsay Lohan for continuing to pursue fashion after taking such a beating from the press during her brief stint as artistic advisor of French luxury brand Ungaro. That takes courage and dedication.

For fall, she's expanding her leggings-only fashion line 6126 into a full collection of looks to take a woman from day to night.

Lohan, the brand's creative director, wasn't in her showroom to tell me about the collection. But she does appear in the fall look-book, posing in thigh-high boots in one shot, and an outfit that could be described as a sequin jumper in another.

Her PR rep reports that "despite what everyone says," Lohan is very involved in the design process, choosing fabrics and inspecting samples at her downtown L.A. studio, even having all the leather jackets redone at the last minute because the sleeves didn't fit snugly enough.

The bread and butter of the collection is still leggings. ("Lindsay really started the legging trend," her sales rep says.) They come in every stripe -- with leather or lace insets, studded details, a dusting of black sequins and more. The coolest pair appeared to have tiny rips all over, but not in a raunchy way.

Mini dresses, the kind you'd wear out clubbing in Hollywood, were also key, the best one in black crocodile embossed leather (it comes with long sleeves or sleeveless). The leathers were all pretty likable actually, including a drapey burnished gold leather jacket (it also comes as a vest). Chunky cardigans, sequin or lace-covered hoodies (you know how Lindsay likes to rock a hood) and nylon puffer jackets rounded out the 280-piece collection.

According to Lohan's rep, store buyers liked what they saw. Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Ron Herman are all on board with the collection, which hits stores in July, priced at about $60 to $1,000.

Maybe LiLo does have a future in this industry. After all, fashion loves a comeback almost as much as Hollywood does.

can't wait! i'll be shelling out a months worth of paychecks just to buy a handful of pieces from this collection

Full Lollapalooza Line Up Announced!

On Tuesday, Lollapalooza will confirm its 2010 headliners as previously reported in the Tribune and other news sources: Lady Gaga, Soundgarden, Green Day, Arcade Fire, the Strokes and Phoenix. Promoters will also announce the remainder of the 124-artist lineup for their Aug. 6-8 festival in Grant Park.


The mix includes veteran acts (Devo, Social Distortion, Mavis Staples) and newcomers on their first albums (The xx, Cymbals Eat Guitars). Though there are token R&B artists (Erykah Badu, Raphael Saadiq), a splash of exotica (Japan metal veterans X Japan, Venezuelan acid-funk outfit Los Amigos Invisibles, Nigerian-German singer Nneka) and even a reggae artist (Jimmy Cliff), the vast majority of the music centers on guitar-based rock and electronic music, with a substantial lineup at the Perry’s DJ stage.

Diversity is lacking. The only hip-hop acts are Cypress Hill, B.o.B. and Peanut Butter Wolf. Only a handful of artists boast Chicago pedigrees (Staples, Felix da Housecat, Flosstradamus, the Ike Reilly Assassination), though Chicago chef Graham Elliot Bowles has been enlisted to curate the festival eateries.

The overall impression of the bookings by Texas-based C3 Presents: It’s a respectable but unspectacular top-heavy lineup with only a couple of true coups (the only U.S. date announced so far for the Strokes, a rare appearance by Belgian mash-up pioneers 2ManyDJs). This year’s under-card seems especially soft; there’s not a whole lot to get excited about in the early-afternoon hours.

A couple of acts sure to attract a substantial audience: the return of Arcade Fire, a rousing live band, and pop diva Lady Gaga. If nothing else, it’ll be interesting to watch the cross-cultural sparks fly as Gaga’s blinged-out gang of “monsters” mingles with what is shaping up as a slightly left-of-center mainstream rock crowd.

8 Other Witches We'd Rather See In Tim Burton's Maleficent Movie



Angelina Jolie is reportedly interested in starring in Tim Burton's rumored next project, Maleficent. But is Jolie really the best actress for Disney's most iconic villain? Here's our list of women who have already proved they're worthy of dragon transformation.

First and foremost let's take a look at the mighty Maleficent, from the original Sleeping Beauty...



That's right — she rides in on lightning, turns into green fire, has the best cape-and-cane accessory combination that can silence a crowd, she curses a baby to Death, and later turns into a dragon. This woman is a bad-ass. You do not screw with Maleficent.

And according to the LA Times, Angelina Jolie wants the part, even though there is no script, confirmed director or even any idea what it's about. All we know is that is it will be a Maleficent-centric film. Whether or not they attempt to redeem this character is up to them — although we hope they don't.

And with that all in mind, we decided to break down exactly who we think should play Maleficent, starting with Angelina as a jumping point.

ABC admits why they really canceled gay storyline

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Was OLTL Too Gay For America?

One Life to Live’s landmark same-sex duo, Kyle Lewis (Brett Claywell) and Oliver Fish (Scott Evans), will abruptly exit the soap next week, amidst speculation that ABC dumped them due to complaints from homophobic viewers. The guys’ final scenes together air April 12, when Fish, who’s a cop, goes to court and wins custody of baby Sierra Rose. Kyle, a doctor, is seen just once more after that, on April 16, confirming some huge DNA news to Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier).

None of the OLTL brass has been talking on the record about this controversial termination, which came three months before Claywell’s contract was due to expire. Claywell at least got official word from the show the day before the news broke. Evans, who is considered a recurring player and therefore not entitled to official notice, had to hear about his axing via Twitter.

At first, ABC tried to play down the double firing in a press statement that trumpeted the Kish story for its boldness and its GLAAD awards, claiming that the couple did indeed resonate with the audience, and making it seem as if their story had simply played itself out and come to a natural conclusion.

But, finally, we have some honesty and a little bit more clarity! In an exclusive statement to TV Guide Magazine, ABC Daytime PR chief Jori Petersen now says “The Kish story did not have the appeal we hoped it would. We are going to spend our time on stories that have a more favorable reaction from our audience.”

After finishing a course of chemotherapy last month the Dexter star is now in remission from Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a cancer that attacks the lymphatic system.

Well this is a surprise....

Gwyneth Paltrow is filled with Hate


Gwyneth Paltrow covers the new British Vogue, and inside she tells the magazine all about her revenge fantasies and pent-up feelings of hatred--possibly directed towards Madonna.

According to UK's Telegraph, here are some excerpts from the interview, out Thursday.

On being filled with hate:
"Oh yes, I can be mean. I can cave in to gossip. I can ice people out and I can definitely harbour revenge. In fact, I'm having a situation right now with a friend where I'm feeling pretty angry. But revenge is corrosive and it doesn't make me feel good. I'll wake up in the morning and think, 'Ugh, I feel terrible', and suddenly realise, 'Ah, that's why. I'm holding on to so much hate."

On her trainer Tracy Anderson's split from Madonna:
"Yeah, it's good that she doesn't train Madonna any more. It was too much. She keeps people waiting - it takes up your whole day."

On staying slim with exercise:
"Oh, I had to work hard to get it like this, but now I'm here it's so great because I don't have to think about it. I can just enjoy life. What a relief is that. I can eat what I want, as long as I exercise, which is just as well, because if I put the word' diet' into my brain, I immediately gain a stone."

This isn't the first time Gwyneth has spoken about her uncontrollable hate. Last year she took to her GOOP newsletter to discuss her anger process for dealing with a frenemy.

Lindsay Lohan is a bit of a mess these days.

That's a point even Michael Lohan will agree with us on, even if we disagree with that nut job's methods of reaching out to his troubled daughter. So disturbed is Lindsay that she can't find consistent work in film anymore and has had to resort to making a living off of personal appearances. Which is all good if you're Kim Kardashian and commanding more than your own TV show is willing to pay you. But Lohan is no Kim Kardashian.

Sandra Bullock does not partake in Dirty Sanchez


Sandra Bullock has broken her silence during her marriage crisis, denying an Internet report there's a sex tape with her and husband Jesse James.

"There is no sex tape," she says in a statement to PEOPLE on Tuesday. "There never has been one and there never will be one."

Until now, Bullock, 45, had not commented, remaining in seclusion since reports surfaced that James, 40, allegedly had cheated on her with at least four other women.

Bullock has been in touch with a close circle of friends, including comedian George Lopez, who visited her for a second time on Monday.

She spoke out in response to an online report that James possesses a graphic sex tape which he could possibly use as leverage in a divorce case.

Janice Dickinson Tells All

In a crazy new interview (would you expect anything else?) Janice speaks her mind on Tyra, Ricky Martin, Perez Hilton, and Simon Cowell. I guess she has some new single coming out? But basically I think she just takes any chance she can get to prattle on about herself. I pulled some of the best stuff -- but the whole thing is worth a read and there's an AMAZING video of her, too:



On Ricky Martin coming out:

We’ve always known Ricky was gay. Come on! [Sings] Living La Vida Lie! Poor thing. I want everyone out there in history to please, if you’re gay, please come out. It feels so good. So I applaud you Ricky. We applaud Ricky Martin finally. Being involved with Out magazine, being able to say, [lowers voice conspiratorially] OK, OK, you all read my book and you know I’ve had a threesome -- you know I’ve had scenes with women. It’s the most freeing thing you could ever do in your life -- coming out. Come out, come out wherever you are. I’m begging any male model or female model in the fashion industry or in the dental industry or any industry -- come out. It feels so good. Bravo Ricky Martin!"

On Tyra Banks:

I made [America’s Next Top Model] very successful and Tyra cut out everything that I said and repeated what I was saying on camera. Oh, snap!

Rufus Changes his Tune



"I have been with Jorn for five years and he's the light of my life. He's my inspiration, support and he's good in the sack, too! But I am very aware of living in the U.S., of the conundrum that you can't marry your gay partner and give him citizenship. He has to apply for a green card and he may or may not get accepted, which is annoying when you're in a committed relationship. If we were straight, we could get married and he'd get his American passport and it would make a lot of sense. I wasn't a huge gay marriage supporter before I met Jorn because I love the whole old-school promiscuous Oscar Wilde freak show of what 'being gay' once was. But since meeting Jorn that all changed." - Rufus

In 2008, Wainwright said he wasn't a "huge supporter of marriage equality" but later backtracked somewhat, saying "
;a girl likes to have options." It appears that his partner's immigration status may have something to do with his evolving opinion.

In a month leading up to his March 10 death, Corey Haim illegally obtained a massive amount of prescription drugs by "shopping doctors," using fraudulent prescriptions, an alias and giving several medical excuses, the California attorney general said in a press conference Tuesday.

In a 32-day period ending just five days before he collapsed in his mother's L.A. apartment, Haim possessed at least 149 tablets of Vicodin, 195 tablets of Valium, 15 tablets of Xanax and 194 tablets of Soma, according to Attorney General Edmund G. Brown, Jr., who called Haim the poster child of prescription drug abuse.

Haim, 38, went to seven different doctors and seven different pharmacies to obtain the doses, Brown said. The actor also collected the drugs from emergency rooms and urgent care facilities.

Gossip Girl Previews 3x18 Plus very vague/mild Nate/Jenny spoilers. **New sneak peeks added**

Extended promo with more interesting stuff

Didn't think these needed a new post but here are 2 clips from next week's episode. 1st one is NS talking to Chuck about Blair. 2nd is Nate talking to Blair about Chuck.

</em></lj-embed>
I wish they would keep Carter around for good. I'm glad last night had Eric. I loved how he was on Jenny's ass the whole episode. I hated how Jenny used the drugging thing to guilt Nate, but I loved how he was like what the hell was that after she tried kissing him. Vanessa/Dan could not be more bland. They have dates on dorm room beds, and now their arguments consist of whether or not they wrote critiques on each others' papers. And wtf at Blair being around Chuck and not murdering him. I wish my boyfriend would try to sell me for a hotel he signed away to some stranger bitch he knew for 3 weeks.



What's Next For Jenny and Nate on Gossip Girl?
Last night's Gossip Girl, "Inglorious Bassterds," gave us a glimpse of the bond between Jenny and Nate, and the lengths she's willing to go to get what she wants.. What's next for them?

According to Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the executive producers who yesterday sought to assuage fears about Chair, there may be feelings that are more than platonic:

"I think one of them may feel that way," Josh said.

Well, yeah. Gotta be Jenny, right? Stephanie then chimed in with this little tidbit: "We do have a really fun story coming up in this last run of episodes moving toward the season finale."

Fun for who, though? Doesn't sound like Serena!

Both these girls have eyes for Nate ... but who will win out?

As for another couple some fans have predicted will get together at some point - Vanessa and Rufus - don't expect that to happen. Even Gossip Girl won't go there, apparently.

"We understand there are all kinds of couple fans, Nate-Serena fans, Dan-Serena fans, and even Vanessa-Rufus fans," Schwartz said. but we want everybody to know that they are talked about in the writer's room all the time, except for the Vanessa-Rufus fans."

"They're the only ones who we can tell you are barking up the wrong tree."

Retail therapy cures everything

Shopping therapy: Amid unpleasantries, Bruce Springsteen hits Worth Avenue with wife Patti

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Hours after more details surfaced about an alleged affair that rocker Bruce Springsteen had with a New Jersey housewife, he and his missus had a wet lunch in Palm Beach then went shopping on Worth Avenue.

I’m told the Boss, 60, and wife/backup singer Patti Scialfa, who winter in Wellington, went into the rocker-chic women’s clothing boutique Gypsy about 3 p.m. Monday. And while the singer of Born in the USA and Human Touch patiently waited, Scialfa tried out more than a dozen of the shop’s funky outfits and vintage jewelry.

“They’re the cutest couple ever,” said a clerk at the Palm Beach store who wouldn’t give her name. “Doesn’t matter what the papers say. He adores her. They’re always together.”

The clerk, however, said the giggly twosome obviously had one too many at lunch.

“You could tell,” she said. “They were feeling no pain! Bruce spent a lot of money but I can’t tell how much.”

The duo actually walked up and down Worth Avenue, the eastern seaboard’s Rodeo Drive, virtually unrecognized and also stopped in Juicy Couture, where Springsteen took a look around before leaving.

On Sunday, the New York Post reported new details about the affair in the divorce case of north Jersey housewife Ann Kelly, 45, a dead-ringer for the 46-year-old Scialfa. Kelly’s husband, according to the newspaper, said that Springsteen’s relationship with Ann, whom he met in a gym, consumed their couple’s counseling sessions.

According to the story, Springsteen showered Ann with concert tickets and serenaded her backstage. At the gym, he’d stand behind her as she worked out on the treadmill, commenting about her booty. They allegedly carried on as the husband, mortgage broker Arthur Kelly, was laid up in a hospital with heart trouble.

Last year, both Ann Kelly and Springsteen denied they ever had a fling. Still, the Kellys divorce became final today.

Maura Tierney back at work, returns to 'Rescue Me'

Maura Tierney is returning to television: The former ER star will reprise her role on Rescue Me, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Tierney's character, Kelly McPhee — a love interest for Denis Leary's Tommy Gavin in Season 5 — memorably ran into her burning apartment to retrieve an important box. Tommy and Kelly's budding romance also put Tierney's character in the middle of a love quadrangle that included Tommy's ex-wife, Janet (Andrea Roth), and his lover, Sheila (Callie Thorne). But don't look for more catfights this time around.

"When Maura comes back, it's a slightly different situation," said Leary, also the show's co-creator and executive producer. "She doesn't really get involved in the way that she did the last time."

Leary said Tierney, 45, has already filmed some of her scenes. But because the production is shooting Seasons 6 and 7 back to back, Tierney's character won't appear until Season 7 airs in 2011.

Leary and fellow creator and executive producer Peter Tolan both have been vocal about wanting Tierney to return. "We loved working with her — that was kind of a big deal to get her," Tolan told TVGuide.com last August. "We have a deal where we can use her for four episodes. And since we have that deal, we will take advantage of it."

At that time, Tierney snagged a role in NBC's freshman drama Parenthood. She eventually dropped out of that project to undergo breast cancer treatment. Tierney returned to work in the play North Atlantic in Los Angeles in February, and the show opened in New York last month.

"[Tierney] has finished treatment and is doing very well and is happy to move forward with the next phase of her life," Christina Papadopoulos, Tierney's rep, told TVGuide.com in a statement.

Rescue Me's sixth season premieres in late June on FX.

Josie Duggar leaves the hospital

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After nearly four months in neonatal intensive care, Duggar baby No. 19, Josie Brooklyn, is finally leaving the hospital.

"We're grateful for the prayers of thousands," Jim Bob Duggar tells PEOPLE as he and wife Michelle left Arkansas Children's Hospital on Tuesday with Josie. "We are so happy," adds Michelle. "We are so excited, we are running on adrenaline. I have been getting into the routine of every three hours feeding, diapering and taking her temperature. We are so encouraged that she is doing so well."

As they drove away from the hospital, her physician, Dr. Robert Arrington said, "This is the first time Josie has seen sunlight." She was born on Dec. 10 via emergency C-section at just 26 weeks' gestation. Weighing just 1 lb. 6 oz., the micropremie fought for her life, surviving a bowel perforation at only 8 days old.

Today, Josie weighs 4 lbs. 9 oz., is breathing without oxygen, eating every three hours and stable enough to go home, says Arrington. It's a bittersweet day for the staff. "I will miss being around the baby and the family," Arrington says. "They are very nice people. But they've told me they will stay in touch and come by the nursery to let us see her."


Michelle says the family's emotional roller-coaster ride has "leveled out," and that Josie's disposition has been a joy in hard times. "She has a strong personality," Michelle says. "She is a spunky little thing and will keep us all going."

The littlest Duggars at home – Jackson, 5, Johanna, 4, Jennifer, 2, and Jordyn, 15 months – have never seen Josie in person and "are jumping up and down that they will finally get to meet their baby sister," says Michelle. Of course, given Josie's still-delicate state, "the little ones will have to be careful with slobbery kisses to prevent any colds and sniffles," Michelle adds.

The family will remain in a rental home nearby in Little Rock indefinitely until they are ready to take Josie home to Tontitown, Ark. "I will be her main caregiver," Michelle says, "and we'll have a lot of helpers around to take turns feeding her and getting her to sleep."

19 Kids and Counting: Josie Comes Home airs Sunday, May 9, at 8/7 Central on TLC.

Ali Larter believes 'Heroes' will return for another season



Despite the gradual decline of the series rating, the actress who plays Niki Sanders insists that 'there are still stories that need to be told.'


Although "Heroes" has faced a gradual decline in its rating, star Ali Larter still believes there is a future for the drama series. The 34-year-old actress who plays Niki Sanders offers some hope for devoted fans when attending "Resident Evil: Afterlife" panel at WonderCon.

"I think that we'll be back," the actress who reprises her role as Claire Redfield in the "Resident Evil" latest installment told the crowd. She went on to say that the series still have more to offer. "I think that there are still stories that need to be told," so she claimed. Her positive attitude was in line with co-star Greg Grunberg. He previously has also predicted that the series would return for a fifth season.

While those two original cast members kept a positive mind-set for the series return, The Hollywood Reporter listed "Heroes" as NBC's "biggest question mark". The site suggested that should the show return to the small screen for its fifth season, it is likely to be the series last seeing that it has recently been panned by critics and logged 4.4 million viewers for its fourth season finale.

According to The Associated Press, over 3,000 people showed up at Maui’s Kihei Charter School last weekend for a chance to appear in the Just Go With It.

Hundreds of people are needed to act as hotel guests, “sitting around a pool, enjoying a luau and eating in restaurants. [Most extras] will be paid $100 for 10 hours of work, but those cast in special roles, such as hula dancers and ‘bikini girls,’ will get more.”

Crew Says Nicollette Sheridan's Claim is BS

TMZ has spoken with a half-dozen people who worked on the set of "Desperate Housewives" and none of them are buying Nicollette Sheridan's story that creator Marc Cherry struck her in the face.

We've spoken with multiple members of the crew who say they never saw or heard anything about Cherry striking Sheridan. One person acknowledges "verbal tiffs" between Cherry and the stars, but never saw such an incident and said of Cherry, "For the most part, he's a good guy ... very professional."

Another person says flatly, "Nothing like this ever happened," adding she "never saw anything questionable or negative."

Yet another person -- who worked on the show for 6 seasons -- says he never heard a word about the alleged incident and says, "It's something that would have been discussed had it happened."

Leno returns to top spot in late night



Were the latenight wars nothing but a dream?

One month after Jay Leno's return to "The Tonight Show," the 11:35 p.m. competition looks a lot like it did a year ago.

"The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" is once again beating rival David Letterman, whose "Late Show" slipped back to No. 2 among yakkers in all major measurements during March.

Both shows, meanwhile, continue to erode as young viewers flee the networks for cable options like Comedy Central and Adult Swim.

"Pretty much back to normal," said TV analyst Steve Sternberg.

Lady Gaga denies she won't release Alejandro because of bad US reviews

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Singer Lady Gaga has denied reports that she is no longer releasing song Alejandro because it got a bad reception in the US.

The 24-year-old performer reportedly argued with her record label over which track should be her next single.

She wanted Alejandro, which is all set to be her next single, whereas her record label reportedly wanted to release Dance In The Dark
.

It is claimed that Alejandro did not chart well outside of the US and managed only no. 78 in Canada and almost failed to make the top 50 in Australia after charting at no. 49.

However, Gaga recently wrote on her Twitter: 'Alejandro is on the radio, f*** it sounds so good we did it little monsters.'

Slash: 'Axl Rose is fucking phenomenal'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Slash has praised his former Guns N' Roses bandmate Axl Rose and the 2008 album he released in the band's name, 'Chinese Democracy'.

The guitarist, who left the group in 1996 and has claimed he turned down huge amounts of money to reunite with them, described the frontman as "fucking phenomenal" despite the pair famously falling out.

"It was the perfect Axl record," Slash told the New York Post about 'Chinese Democracy'.

He added that the album was "exactly what I would have expected from the final years of us working together, and seeing where he was headed musically. It's very heavy, sort of a dark, depressing record. He's fucking phenomenal".

When asked if he could reconcile with Rose, Slash seemed to think it was unlikely.

"I'm more stand-offish because I know how vehemently he hates me," he explained. "So that sort of makes me doubt it. But if we ran into each other and all that animosity were to pass for a second, then I'm sure we could have an interesting conversation."

Guns N' Roses headline the Reading And Leeds Festivals this August along with Arcade Fire and Blink-182.

EXCLUSIVE: Does Max Weinberg Want to Be Jay Leno's New Bandleader?



After the Late Night Wars toppled Conan O’Brien from The Tonight Show and reinstalled Jay Leno in his place, it seemed as though the battle lines had been drawn: on one side, there was Team Coco, on the other, Team Leno, and never the twain should meet. That’s what makes the news we’re about to reveal all the more surprising.

Sources tell Movieline that Conan O’Brien’s longtime bandleader Max Weinberg recently made overtures to Leno about joining the new Tonight Show as Leno’s bandleader. He’d be replacing Kevin Eubanks, who announced in February that he had plans to leave the show.

Rihanna disgusted by product placement

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Rihanna is fed up with music executives placing products into her music videos, because it transforms her work into "ad campaigns."

The "Umbrella" hitmaker claims too many singers agree to show off gadgets or designer goods in their videos to boost the budget - and wants to see an end to the money-spinning marketing tactic.

She tells Britain's NME, "I don't like things to be so commercial. I hate product placement in my videos. Videos should just tell the story of the song.

"With product placement, it becomes this big ad campaign. I just don't like that. Sometimes we have to (use products in music videos), for whatever political reason, but it's never my first choice."


Last week reps at Kelly Rowland's label Universal Motown sent a mass email to all major brands, urging bosses to place their products in her upcoming single's video.

Douglas Family Pleads for Leniency for Cameron Douglas

Kirk Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones pen letters in hopes of helping Cameron Douglas skirt jail

Cameron Douglas is hoping his Hollywood family can keep him out of prison for 10 years.

Grandfather Kirk Douglas and stepmom Catherine Zeta-Jones are among the famous names who sent letters to the Manhattan judge who will sentence the drug dealer on April 27.


The "Spartacus" legend said he was surprised to hear his long-troubled grandson was in trouble with the law.

"I remember when he played a part in the movie with me and Michael. He was a natural. We were so proud," he wrote to Judge Richard Berman.

"I was shocked when he got in such a mess. I am convinced that Cameron could be a fine actor and a person that cares for others. I hope I can see that happen before I die. I love Cameron."

Zeta-Jones wrote about what a wonderful step-brother Douglas was to her two children and said he deserved placement in a treatment facility - not a long prison term.

"I use the word "disease,'" she wrote.


"My stepson is a caring, considerate worthy human being, but never the less, the disease that for years he has tried to combat, did take over again.

"What is wrong is wrong, but may all these positive attributes prevail, so that a facility that he is positioned in will help rehabilitate him."

Family friend and NBA coach Pat Riley begged the judge to send Douglas to rehab.

"I know in the bottom of my heart that he can become a valuable, responsible productive person in society," Riley wrote on official Miami Heat stationary.

"Cameron is not a criminal. His criminal behaviour cannot be tolerated and should bear consequences. I ask for mercy, Judge. can we please save this 'ONE.'"

Douglas, who pleaded guilty to dealing drugs, faces a minimum of 10 years unless the judge shows him leniency.

Is Jennifer Garner pregnant again?

Girlfriends — we are asking the question because either Jennifer’s about four months pregnant with baby #3 … or she’s wearing a very unflattering gray sweater!

Take a look yourselves at Jennifer Garner in these pics from both a half-side and front angle. Do you think she’s pregnant?

It’s certainly possible. She and hubby of almost five years Ben Affleck are thrilled to be parents to little Seraphina, 1, and Violet, 4.We noticed that she hasn’t been coloring her hair since January and we wondered about her mega-roots even then. Lots of women don’t color their hair when they’re even trying to get pregnant for fear of toxins in the hair dye.

Requests for comment to both Jen and Ben’s reps, were not answered fyi.

Looking for this decade's Missy Elliott
Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Hip-hop often gets a bad rap for being male-dominated and misogynist, but female MCs have been on the cutting edge of hip-hop since the beginning. The 80s saw outspoken artists like MC Lyte, J.J. Fad, Salt-n-Pepa and Queen Latifah; the 90s were dominated by Missy Elliott, Eve, and Lauryn Hill.

But If you take a look around this past decade, you might wonder: where the ladies at?

Fear not. Last month at the SXSW music festival in Austin, there was an amazing range of female hip-hop artists — from the provocative political rap of Detroit’s Invincible, to the soulful tunes of Nigerian artist Nneka, to the booty-shakin’ club rap of Chicago’s Kid Sister.

Singer Inspires 'Endless' Speculation on Gender



Is Filipino Singer Reggie Ramirez a He or a She?
 

(April 5) -- A Filipino singer who sings both the male and female parts of songs like "Endless Love" is causing endless speculation on whether he is a he, a she or a combination of both.
 

Reggie Ramirez, 34, a singer from Davao City, Philippines, has become a Susan Boyle-like Internet sensation after performing a startling duet of "Endless Love" on the show "Pilipinas Got Talent."
 

Ramirez, who says he went on the show to find his long-lost brother, performs as half-man and half-female, complete with a pink dress on the left side of his body and a tuxedo on the right.
 

Adding to the effect is the fact that Ramirez has a beard on the "male" half of his body, although it looks augmented.
 

Ramirez's looks -- and vocal range -- are startling enough that folks who see the video are wondering if the singer really does possess equal parts of both genders.
 

Dr. William Turner, an expert on gender dynamics and author of the 2000 book "A Genealogy of Queer Theory" (Temple University Press), says it's possible that Ramirez is intersexed, a condition that occurs when a person is born with atypical genitals that can be mistaken for either male or female.
 

One in 2,000 babies is born with this condition, and, in some cases U.S. doctors perform sex changes on them to make them look normal. However, with certain groups of people who have a particular gene, you can't tell their gender until puberty.
 

Turner acknowledges that there's no way to determine a person's gender by just watching a YouTube video and says it's very possible that Ramirez is "more of a drag queen."

Cyndi Lauper to Open Shelter for Homeless LGBT Youth + Give A Damn Campaign



Cyndi Lauper to Open Shelter for Homeless LGBT Youth in Harlem


Cyndi Lauper is helping establish Manhattan's first permanent housing for homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth in Harlem.

Many homeless LGBT youth face violence in mainstream shelters, forcing them to rely on a small network of gay-friendly facilities, advocates say. The True Colors Residence, set to open in winter 2011, will provide young people between 18 and 24 with a place to live while helping them get back on their feet.

“Kids are coming out in greater numbers as they see themselves accepted and represented on TV and in movies, but they’re still being kicked out of their homes or running away and living on the streets," Lauper said in a statement.

“We need to make sure we’re taking care of them. This is the next generation of the LGBT community.”

Get Informed. Get Involved. Give a Damn!


Cyndi Lauper’s new campaign for LGBT equality had exploded onto the national scene with the release of a series of videos featuring celebrities expressing why they Give a Damn about equality.

The We Give a Damn campaign is a bold, Web-based initiative with the goal of educating and engaging the straight community in the advancement of LGBT equality.

The Web site is designed as an easy to understand introduction to the issues affecting the LGBT community.

Through the use of social media tools like Facebook and Twitter, visitors are urged to reach out to the straight people in their lives encourage them to show their support. There are also additional opportunities to get involved with an array of non-profit organizations available through the We Give a Damn partnerships.

SDGLN will feature the videos from celebrities such as Elton John, Whoopi Goldberg, Jason Mraz Cynthia Nixon, Anna Paquin, Sharon & Kelly Osbourne and Clay Aiken.

The unstoppable rise of Russell Brand...

Eighteen months ago, the comedian's career seemed on the edge of collapse. Now he's on the verge of international stardom. So what went right?



When Russell Brand was 16, he inscribed a school-leaving card to his first girlfriend. "You might be as famous as me one day," he wrote. "If so, see you at the top." There was no "might", not from the very beginning, about how famous Russell Brand expected to be.

But the rest of us might have been forgiven for thinking the game was up for Brand after the 2008 incident when, egged on by Jonathan Ross, he prank-called the elderly actor Andrew Sachs to boast he had slept with his granddaughter. The incident cost him his show on Radio 2 and turned much of the UK media against him. Yet, a year-and-a-half on from "Sachsgate", while Ross's star is falling, Brand has become a transatlantically famous name.

Having been eagerly photographed waltzing up the red carpet into Vanity Fair's post-Oscars party with pop star fiancee Katy Perry, Brand now has six feature films either in development or post-production. A sequel to his bestselling autobiography, My Bookie Wook, is under contract with a new publisher, and Oliver Stone – who has said that Brand reminds him of Jim Morrison – is reported to be executive-producing a documentary about him. Less than two years after many were predicting the end of his career, this spindleshanked loon in women's trousers looks set to take over the world. How, it's fair to wonder, did this come about?

What to do, what to do...


The age-old Emmy question of how to deal with an ensemble is coming to a head on ABC’s “Modern Family,” where the cast is nearing a decision on who (if anyone) will be submitted as a lead actor and who will compete for supporting.

With the April 30 deadline approaching, sources say four separate scenarios are being mulled:

-either all six adult regulars (Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vergara and Eric Stonestreet) will compete as leads;

-all will go supporting;

-everyone will go supporting except O’Neill, who, as the only major pre-”Family” star, could separate himself as lead;

-or Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen, as the show’s “traditional” parents, will go lead and the rest supporting.

A tough choice, and recent Emmy history offers little guidance. “Friends” is perhaps the last true ensemble comedy to break out like “Modern Family” has. That cast was initially nominated only in the supporting category (Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer, with Kudrow winning in 1998) but in 2002 co-stars Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc squared off in lead—both were nominated but neither won (Ray Romano did). Perry then stepped back to supporting, while LeBlanc stayed in lead—and still, neither won.

Nevertheless, when fellow “Friends” co-star Jennifer Aniston moved to lead in 2002, she brought home the trophy. Even if the “Modern Family” cast opts to run against each other, multiple noms and even a win are possible. In 2005, “Desperate Housewives” scored three lead actress (comedy) nominees (Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher and Felicity Huffman) and Huffman ended up winning.

Same goes for supporting. In 2002, “The West Wing” fielded four of the six contenders in supporting actor (drama)—and John Spencer won for the show. In 2004, “Sex and the City” fielded three of the five names in supporting actress (comedy)—and Cynthia Nixon won for the show. Between 2002-05 “Everybody Loves Raymond” co-stars Peter Boyle and Brad Garrett paired up in the supporting actor (comedy) lineup—and Garrett won three of the four times.

More recently, however, “30 Rock” co-stars Tracy Morgan and Jack McBrayer faced off in the supporting actor (comedy) category last year and neither won. Also last year, “SNL” co-stars Amy Pohler and Kristen Wiig both earned supporting actress (comedy) noms but neither wom.

No easy answers, and producers are leaving it to the castmembers to decide. Maybe “Modern Family” should just submit the iPad as a supporting player and be done with it.
