Rosie O'Donnell Wants To Help Lohan

Lindsay Lohan's father has won the support of actress and TV personality Rosie O'Donnell in his bid to force the Mean Girls star into rehab - she's positive the 23 year old needs help.

The A League of Their Own star admits she feels close to Michael Lohan's daughter - because she sees herself in the actress' mother, Dina.

She tells U.S. TV news show Access Hollywood, "Lindsay Lohan's mother grew up one town over from where I did. I'm the same age as her mother... There's like five people who are famous from the area we grew up and she's one of them, and it makes me very sad.

"I look at Lindsay Lohan and think, 'That could be my child' - literally. All I wanna do is help her and save her and I wonder why her mother does not."

O'Donnell agrees with Lohan's concerned father, who is seeking legal aid in his bid to force his daughter to get help for an alleged prescription medication addiction.

She adds, "Lindsay Lohan needs a severe intervention."

And the actress admits she would call on TV counsellor to the stars Dr. Drew Pinsky to help her help the 23 year old.

O'Donnell adds, "I would take Dr. Drew Pinsky and Lindsay Lohan and hopefully get us in a room for a couple of hours, and then I would take her off to rehab and force her to stay there. It's hard to watch it happen and not have anyone to help her."

But the TV personality wants to make it clear she's not a fan of Lohan's father, even though she supports his bid to find help for his daughter: "Her father doesn't seem stable enough, nor does her mother. It's gonna take some kind of intervention and it's gonna be up to Lindsay in the end."

Kate Gosselin's New Book Bombs

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kate Gosselin's latest book isn't exactly flying off the shelves.

Since its April 13 release, "I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith, and Family" has sold just 10,084 copies, according to national book sales tracker Bookscan. The non-fiction title debuted at #11 on the New York Times' non fiction bestseller list, and at #103 on USA Today's bestsellers chart. By Thursday afternoon, its Amazon.com rank was #862.

This is in spite of Gosselin's relentless promotion of the tome on TV and radio -- plus her ubiquitous presence on Dancing with the Stars prior to her ouster last week.

Jim Milliot, business and news director of book-industry magazine Publishers Weekly, tells UsMagazine.com that the numbers are "nowhere near a blockbuster" and "not that impressive."

By contrast, the 35-year-old mom's first two books, "Multiple Blessings" and "Eight Little Faces", both climbed to number five on the New York Times' list; "Multiple Blessings" sold 523,000 copies in 2009.

Could "I Just Want You to Know" end up selling 500,000 copies in the long run? Not likely, Milliot tells Us, explaining that the lion's share of book sales typically occur "in the first month or two of publication. He adds that Gosselin will have "a very tough time getting to 50,000, let alone 100,000...I think it will be a disappointment in the end."

The book "continues [Kate's] story of faith and family," an Amazon description reads. "Using excerpts and written prayers from her journal, Kate offers an intimate look at the heart of a mother during the three years her family transitioned from obscurity into television fame."


...just singin' and dancin' with my amazing bollocks

Daniel Radcliffe has been put under a tough regimen for his Broadway musical debut.

Rob Ashford, who has just opened 'Promises, Promises', will be directing Daniel in the Frank Loesser show 'How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying' in New York early next spring.

'He's singing every day with a vocal coach in London and I've got my assistant putting him through his dance paces every other day. I'm covering all bases with Daniel - and he's delivering,' Ashford told me.

Candy Spelling, who will be one of the show's producers, told me she saw Daniel at a casting audition and a rehearsed run-through for backers and she was impressed with the nimbleness of his dance moves, and his singing voice.

Rose Hemingway, who has been cast opposite Daniel as his stage girlfriend Rosemary Pilkington, told me she did her audition with Daniel.

Holy Jessica Simpson Cleavage, Batman!

Okay, so a lot of people are giving Jessica Simpson a hard time because she's kinda been getting fat. But as a side effect of that, Jessica Simpson's breasts have also gotten bigger than ever before. So it's kinda win lose. Except when Jessica Simpson visited Ellen DeGeneres it was definitely win win (especially for Ellen, one would assume) (because Ellen is gay) (Get it?). Anyway, Jessica Simpson's cleavage was spectacular, and I, for one, hope she keeps pounding back those cheeseburgers, and letting those puppies loose!

New Cast Member Welcoming Party For "Love, Loss, And What I Wore"

Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron’s intimate collection of vignettes and monologues is based on the best-selling book of the same name by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons’ friends. Like the book, this funny and poignant theatrical event uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell stories that all women can relate to. “The Vagina Monologues without the vaginas,” is how the Ephrons describe Love, Loss, and I Wore, while syndicated columnist Liz Smith simply raves, “This is an evening that goes directly to the heart, soul and vanity of every woman, young or old.” Directed by Karen Carpenter, the production will feature three different (5-member) all-star casts who will perform the piece in four-week cycles.

Lindsay Lohan -- Bound for Jail

Lindsay Lohan has violated the terms of her probation and is headed for a showdown in court next month that will almost certainly land her in jail.

Lohan -- who is on probation for DUI -- has not fulfilled the alcohol education requirement laid down by the judge ... TMZ has learned.

Judge Marsha Revel made it clear to Lindsay late last year, she must attend alcohol ed courses once every 7 days.  The only exception -- if she was in inpatient rehab.  And the judge was explicit ... if Lindsay did not comply with the terms of probation, she was going to jail.

The school in which Lindsay enrolled is required by state law to inform the court only if the student is MIA for 21 days.  So here's the disconnect: The school has not reported an attendance violation ... because Lindsay frequently waited until the 21st day to attend classes.

Bottom line -- Lindsay met the school's requirement, but squarely violated the judge's order.

We've learned what's going to come out at Lindsay's progress hearing on May 20 -- that she has habitually violated the judge's requirement to attend classes at least once every 7 days. 

Judge Revel has made it clear to Lindsay -- no more chances.  If probation is violated, she's going to jail ... and probation was repeatedly violated.

We asked Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, for comment and received the following email:  "We have received no negative written report from the program and contend Ms. Lohan is therefore in compliance."  Good lawyering for sure, because -- as we just told you -- the program may not have a problem with Lindsay, but the judge is going to have a big problem.

Ellen Page Joining Diane Keaton on HBO's Nikki Finke Show

Last night I scored a copy of the opening episode of Bill Condon and Cynthia Mort's Tilda -- a recent draft with the words "Tilda_April" on the top left corner. The cat ran out of the bag eight days ago, of course, when Hollywood Reporter columnist Matthew Belloni ran a combination review and legal assessment piece based on a reading of a February first draft, so there's there's nothing to say that's strictly mine except to call it hugely entertaining and so on. I'll elaborate in a sec.

Tilda is a forthcoming HBO series about a Nikki Finke-ish Hollywood blogger that will star Diane Keaton and costar Ellen Page. An HBO spokesperson told Belloni that '"the script is a fictional composite and not based on any one person." Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit. The Tilda Watski character is Finke, Finke, Finke all the way. Belloni was spot-on when he said the show should be called Toldja! instead of Tilda.

Julia Roberts Shocked that PEOPLE Bumped Her Cover for Sandra Bullock Cover

Julia Roberts Blind Sided By Bullock ... Again

However, the person who was most shocked about the adoption news was Julia Roberts, who expected to see her gorgeous face gracing the cover of PEOPLE magazine this week.

"The plan was for Julia Roberts to be on the cover as PEOPLE's Most Beautiful Person, however, after Sandra's representatives called the magazine offering this amazing story, they changed it in a second. Everything was so secretive that no one let Julia know about the switch," a magazine source laughed.

"Life & Style magazine, who are part of the same company that broke the Jesse James scandal wide open, were close to breaking the adoption story, reporting that Sandra was going to adopt. After Sandra and her team read that, they knew they needed to move fast and offered an exclusive to PEOPLE," explains a source.


This is interesting because Julia Roberts was offered both 'The Proposal' and 'The Blind Side' lead roles before rejecting them.

FYI, this is Julia Roberts' 4th time being named PEOPLE Magazine's Most Beautiful Person in the World and her 12th time on the Most Beautiful list.

First look: Rob Lowe on Parks & Rec

The exiting Brothers & Sisters actor joins the NBC comedy next month as one of two state employees (the other being Party Down‘s Adam Scott) brought in to fix Pawnee’s budgetary crisis. Executive producer Michael Schur likens it to “an action movie where the FBI shows up and the local cops say, ‘This is our jurisdiction! And the FBI says, ‘Not anymore!’” But Lowe’s character, Chris Traeger, wins everyone over with his “very optimistic, positive, forward-thinking” attitude, explains Schur, who hints that he “very quickly falls into a romantic entanglement” with one of the locals. “I don’t want to spoil who it is because it’s kind of a surprise.”


Emma Pillsbury and Doogie Howser, hard at work

Neil Patrick Harris was a man at work as he filmed scenes for The Smurfs in New York City today (April 29).

Joined by co-star Jayma Mays, the 36-year-old actor was in good spirits as he spent the afternoon filming an outdoor scene for the upcoming live-action/CGI-animated fantasy-family film directed by Raja Gosnell.

Though nowhere in sight, co-stars include Katy Perry, Jonathan Winters, Jeff Foxworthy, Alan Cumming and George Lopez.

After having the release date pushed back two times, The Smurfs is currently scheduled to be released on August 3, 2011.

Meanwhile, NPH is among Time magazine’s annual list of the world’s most influential people — 100 artists, heroes, leaders, and thinkers who affect our world.

Writes director/executive producer Joss Whedon: “He’s been nominated for an Emmy three times for his role as hetero hound Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother not because he’s playing straight but because he’s very funny. He made the issue of his sexuality disappear without desexualizing himself. He can get the girl and sing about the boys, and it all works. The public’s perception of gay men is shifting because of this guy, and they’ll be too entertained to notice. That’s more than a good trick. That’s magic.”

Oprah Puts a Bitch on Blast

Shreds Rielle Hunter's psycho-babble

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Oprah Winfrey is more than a superstar TV host. She's also an excellent interviewer -- I mean, she's in a league with Katie Couric.

At least, that is felt like Thursday watching her skillfully slice and dice the contradictory psycho-babble and rationalizations from Rielle Hunter, mistress of disgraced one-time presidential candidate John Edward.

Hunter kept talking about her "commitment" to a "life of truth," and Winfrey kept patiently but doggedly calling her on it. Consistently reminding Hunter of her claims of being committed to "spirituality" and "truth," Winfrey point by point challenged her as to how she could "make that OK" with the sleazy, deceitful, marriage-shredding behavior she was engaged in with Edwards. Did Winfrey "crack" Hunter in some way? No, of course not. That doesn't happen with someone as self-delusional and strange as Hunter. But Winfrey did show her for the liar, hypocrite and shameless fame chaser she is. And their TV conversation Thursday continued the public shaming of John Edwards. And that's a very good thing for all of us to see -- before we fall for the next smiling, self-annointed "peoples' candidate" with a $500 haircut.

At one point, when Winfrey was quizzing Hunter on why she went along with Edwards' denying the paternity of her child via the really big lie that an aide was the real father, Winfrey sarcastically addressed Hunter as "Miss Spirituality."

"So why did you, Miss Spirituality and 'Alignment with the Truth,' go along with that?" Winfrey asked.

"Because of my daughter," Hunter said. She said she feared that if she didn't go along with the paternity scam, Edwards would be forced to drop out of the presidential race and her daughter would grow up thinking she was to blame for John Edwards never being president of the United States.

And then, Hunter started crying.

Halle & Gabriel split

Beautiful Halle Berry is a three time loser in love, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

With two failed marriages behind her, it seemed Halle had finally found her soul mate in Canadian model Gabriel Aubry. The couple even had a child together, adorable daughter Nahla Ariela Aubry, who was born March 16th 2008.

But RadarOnline.com has learned that Halle and Gabriel have called it quits and worked out a financial and custody deal. They spent months hammering out a deal with a lawyer, RadarOnline.com learned.

A source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com that Gabriel was the one who pulled the plug on their five year relationship and that the age difference – he’s 34, she’s 43 – played a role.

"Gabriel just felt it wasn't working anymore," the source says. "When they were first together the 9-year age difference between them didn't phase him, she was the most beautiful woman he had ever dated and he was totally in love.

"But as time went on he started feeling it more and more.

"Also, Gabriel started noticing other women, and being attracted to other, and he felt it just wasn't right to stay with Halle in those circumstances.

"Gabriel is a really nice, decent guy and he would never cheat on her, but I suspect that he had become attracted to someone and that he felt he needed to break it off with Halle before anything developed any further."

It's the latest in a series of emotional letdowns for Halle. Her first marriage, to David Justice, a former baseball player, ended acrimoniously after 5 years amid accusations from Berry of domestic abuse.

Shakira enters Arizona immigration fight

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Grammy Award-winning singer Shakira has joined the growing chorus of opposition to Arizona's new immigration law.

Shakira met with leaders Thursday in Arizona Thursday before talking about the issue on CNN's "AC 360." She said some police and lawmakers in Arizona are worried about how the new law will be implemented.

"The mayor is very, very worried, as well as the chief of police here," Shakira said. "They're both very worried about the impact that implementation of this law will have on Latino families, the level of abuse that will be inflicted on Latinos, with or without papers."

The new measure requires Arizona police to determine whether people are in the United States legally if there is a reason to suspect they aren't.

The law, scheduled to go into effect 90 days after the close of the state's legislative session, would require immigrants to carry their alien registration documents at all times.

Supporters claim it is needed to control illegal immigration. Critics counter, saying it will create government-sanctioned racial profiling.

Shakira said she talked to women in Arizona who said they were scared about how the law would affect them.

"I just met with some families and women who have been subjected to domestic violence, and they are so concerned," the singer said. "They're going to live in fear to call the police or to report a crime that has been inflicted to them. They're trying to protect their kids and their own families from abusers. and now they're going to have to protect themselves from the government."

The Colombian singer said when she was in Arizona on Thursday, she thought about how the new law would affect her.

"If this law was already in effect today, for example, I could be detained and arrested and taken away because I don't even have my driver's license here. I 'm completely undocumented here," Shakira said.

Discuss! And play nice kids...

Meanwhile, Greg Mottola is reportedly writing an adaptation of Important Artifacts for Paramount Pictures to Natalie and fellow A-lister

The novel, actually titled Important Artifacts and Personal Property From the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion and Jewelry, is a fake auction catalog that chronicles the rise and fall of a four-year relationship. It’s essentially 325 pages of email, notes, pictures, and heirlooms that Mottola will weave into the script.

Natalie and Brad, rumored to be attached to this since March 2009, will obviously play the couple.

Insider: I Saw Kristin Cavallari "Do a Line of Cocaine"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

On the Apr. 27 Hills premiere, Kristin Cavallari strongly dismissed her costars' insinuations that she has been doing drugs, but sources tell the new Us Weekly (on newsstands now) that the MTV reality star, 23, is spiraling out of control.

Earlier this month, after a night of dinking at Night Vision’s Oasis event at Coachella in Indio, Calif., Cavallari, 23, joined 37-year-old actor Jason Statham and several others for a late-night spin in a golf cart, the new Us Weekly reports. "They got pulled over by the cops and were told to go home," recounts a Cavallari acquaintance, who tells Us Weekly that throughout the music festival weekend, the star "was drinking and partying. I saw her do a line of cocaine."

Though Cavallari's lawyer denies she uses drugs, a source tells Us Weekly: "The dudes she hangs out with are all party promoters — and they’re party animals."

Adds another: "She's been sucked into the Hollywood scene. She's surrounded by the leeches who enable her."


New Sex and The City 2 Poster – The Girls Are All Here!

A new poster has been released for Sex and the City 2 and it features Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte. The first two teasers only highlighted Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw and now the other ladies are getting in on the action. Even though the gang’s all here they’re hard to recognize because they’ve been photoshopped to death. Everyone in this poster looks like they got attacked by a Crayola crayon…

In the sequel to the 2008 film, the women are going through some serious changes and we’re not talking about menopause. Carrie and Big are married but are losing their spark, Charlotte is being over run by her children, Miranda is overwhelmed by work, and as usual Samantha is trying to hold on to her fleeting youth.

Who are these women? Are they supposed to be the actresses we all know and love because they look like CGI animations. Sometimes the people in the photo editing department need to layoff the airbrush tool, it’s not helping! Kim Catrall looks like Sharon Stone in this poster and Parker looks like a banshee. It’s so unnecessary because all four of them are beautiful without all of the “additional help.”

What do you think of the latest poster for Sex and the City 2?

(Sound is a little wonky)

"Little did I know, Mr. Rogers was an evil man. By telling children they’re special just for being who they are, he helped create this generation of worthless, lazy socialists who think they’re entitled to health care… at least according to Fox News.

They actually use the word “evil” to describe Mr. Rogers and criticize him for his “optimistic message where everyone was special even if they didn’t deserve it”, which is “ruining kids with a sense of entitlement.” Then one of them starts babbling about how children should go back to churning butter and making their own sweaters. Fox’s Brian Kilmeade said “that man unintentionally did a whole generation or two a disservice.” Only on Fox could a man who spent his life dedicated to public service and education be blamed for ruining generations of Americans.

And if you are interested in the ’study’ done by the LSU professor, it’s available at the Wall Street Journal: Blame It on Mr. Rogers: Why Young Adults Feel So Entitled."

David Letterman On Regis: Troubled, Explosive Home Life

NEW YORK — David Letterman says the scandal surrounding his workplace dalliances initially "knocked him down" and left him depressed, but that now he's putting the pieces of his life back together.

During a guest shot on Friday's "Live! With Regis and Kelly," the CBS late-night star said his behavior was stupid and reckless, and that it hurt his family and himself. But he sounded hopeful that life with his wife and young son can "even be better, in a different way" than before the explosive revelations that he had had sex with female "Late Show" co-workers.

"You take a look at the explosion," Letterman said, "and it knocks you down and you wake up every morning and you're scared and you're depressed and sad.

"And you kind of got to let that knock you down and knock you down, and then pretty soon you've got to start knocking IT down. And then, when that happens, you start looking at the pieces left of your life." no idea

These reflections came at the end of a multisegment appearance on the syndicated daytime show – his first visit with co-hosts Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa in four years.

"How's everything at home?" Philbin asked, to which Letterman replied, deadpan, "I don't know if people know about this, but I've had some trouble."

Danielle Staub says she doesn't care that she's not invited to the big $1,000-a-head benefit at Caroline Manzo's house as she steers her SUV, inevitably, toward the Manzo manse in Franklin Lakes. Jacqueline Laurita asks her renegade daughter Ashley and her boyfriend whether they're using protection. Teresa Giudice compares a certain part of Danielle's anatomy to the Lincoln Tunnel. And it's not her mouth. We've seen the premiere of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," which premieres Monday, and yes, it's as inappropriate as ever. Thank god.

Unlike the abbreviated first season, the sophomore season will be more than twice as long, Teresa tells us. The first seven episodes will build toward New York Fashion Week, in which both Danielle's daughter Christine and Teresa's daughter Gia are supposed to be modeling, and Danielle's altercation with Ashley at the North Jersey Country Club in November. Danielle's ex-boyfriend Steve Zalewski will also resurface with more supposedly scandalous details of their relationship.

Of the upcoming season, Staub tells Gawker: "I wish I could say it has a plot, but it really doesn't. I think for the other women the plot is trying to dig up information on me from 25 years ago, and for me it's trying to stay as far away as possible from that." At least until her own memoir comes out.


I love these fabulously crazy bitches. Can't wait!

Newly crowned Queen of Pop not so original?

Christina Aguilera's jaw-dropping "Not Myself Tonight" sees the pop star getting back to her "Dirrty" roots, but that's not the only thing about it feels a bit nostalgic.

See, in addition to all the bondage, barely there outfits and heavy breathing on display in the clip, there's a whole lot of it that also reminds us of some of the greatest videos of yesteryear (or even last year). There's a familiar feel to "Tonight," which is just part of why watching it is such a blast (those barely there outfits are another). So in order to maximize your enjoyment, we've compiled this handy pop-culture cheat sheet, a sort of scorecard of the many influences that flash before your eyes. Oh, and we've alphabetized it for your perusing ease.

Lance Armstrong To Be A Dad Again for Fifth Time

Cycling ace Lance Armstrong is expecting another baby with his girlfriend Anna Hansen - less than a year after the couple's first child was born.

The sportsman, who has three kids with his ex-wife Kristin, became a dad for the fourth time last June when Hansen gave birth to little Max, and the happy couple is expecting another arrival in October. The star announced the news in a post on Twitter.com, creating a separate account for the new baby, which he has nicknamed Cinco Armstrong.

In a post on the baby's Twitter.com page, Armstrong writes, "I got 2 arms, 2 legs, a nickname, and I'm 2 inches long. See y'all in October... I'm now the size of a lemon, 3.5 inches long, and weigh 1.5 ounces. And oh yeah, I'm on Twitter."

Armstrong also confirms the news in a post on his own Twitter page, adding, "Getting (questions) today about someone I'm following, a certain Cinco Armstrong. What to say? Yet another blessing in our lives. I cannot wait!"

Armstrong has also given fans a clue about the new baby's name - the child's Twitter.com account is registered to JackOlivia.



Dan Duggins
, former drummer of Hot Rod Circuit and Lazycain and current drummer of the Queen Killing Kings, suffered a stroke on April 27 due to a blood clot in his neck, according to fellow former HRC drummer Mike Poorman. Poorman writes in part:

"[Duggins] is currently in a 'locked in' state in intensive care, which means that he can not move and cannot communicate, except with eye movement. I've just read this morning that he moved his left foot on command, which is absolutely amazing, and definitely hopeful!

Like most full time musicians, Dan does not have health insurance. His medical bills and living expenses during/after this will be through the roof. I have set up a paypal account to help him and his family with this financial burden. If there are any of you out there that can donate to help, it would be greatly appreciated. Even a few dollars will help."

If you're interested in donating, you can do so HERE. The 34-year-old Duggins played drums for HRC from 2004 until their 2007 demise, and can be heard on Reality's Coming Through and The Underground Is A Dying Breed. We wish him the speediest of recoveries.

Duggins is the latest in an increasingly long line of musicians stuck without health insurance; you can read more about how the current health care debate affects our scene here.

New We Are Scientist Video - Nice Guys.

WE ARE SCIENTISTS have served up a hilarious dose of comedy for their new video Nice Guys.

The boys have spoofed their own song, adding incorrect subtitles that sound like their lyrics.

In the track, frontman KEITH MURRAY sings: "If you're the nice guy, act like the nice guy."

But instead, the words on the screen read, "Act like the night sky, act like the night sky."

And when Keith sings: "If you want this, then I want it more than you," the subtitles say, "If few want this, a'want it more, the new."

The single is the second release from album Barbara.

Stephanie Tanner knocked up again

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jodie Sweetin — the now two-time divorcee who grew up before our eyes playing Stephanie Tanner on the ’80s & ’90s sitcom Full House -- is expecting her second child with a man she’s been dating for just a few months, The National Enquirer spills in its May 10 edition.

Jodie, 28, has blamed her recurrent addiction to meth and alcohol for fueling her divorce from second husband Cody Herpin. Now clean and sober, Sweetin’s managed to rebound with Hollywood DJ Morty Coyle in a whirlwind romance that has friends of the blonde concerned about her future.

“She split with Cody and moved in with her parents,” a family friend divulges. “She slipped back into the Hollywood club scene where she met Morty, quickly fell in love — and got pregnant. Now they’re talking about getting married.”

Morty and Jodie will welcome their first child together in July — much to the chagrin of Sweetin’s set designer ex Cody. He has a 2-year-old daughter, Zoie, with the former child star and although the exes have successfully managed to share custody in peace, Herpin tells The Enquirer that Jodie lacks the skills to remain sober while coping with motherhood.

“I’m totally disgusted with Jodie right now,” spits Cody, who just learned of Jodie’s relationship with Morty and her subsequent pregnancy a few weeks ago. “Raising a child takes a lot of time and patience. Jodie hasn’t put in nearly enough time with our daughter — and now she’s having another child! I find it hard to believe that Jodie will keep upher sobriety with the choices she keeps making,” he added. “To have a child with somebody is no small thing. Hopefully, Morty realizes having a child with Jodie is a full-time job. That’s something I had to learn the hard way.”



Warner Bros confirms release date of third Nolan Batman film

Warner Bros. has set July 20, 2012 as the official release date for the follow-up to Christopher Nolan's wildly successful Batman film, The Dark Knight.

While there have been many rumours since the last film - casting, villians, etc - none of the above has been confirmed, including whether Christian Bale will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman.

The screenplay is currently being written by Nolan's brother, Jonah and David Goyen.


"Fist Pumping For Love" coming soon

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Emilio Masella, the buff Gold’s Gym trainer who almost proposed to Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, will travel from New York to California in search of a new guidette on Fist Pumping For Love, a new docu-series produced by The Hills’ Spencr Pratt and Heidi Montag.

After four months of dating, Masella was dumped by the guidette in a voicemail earlier this month when a furious Snooki discovered that he’d auditioned for MTV’s The Real World behind her back.

“It is the perfect partnership for me as a growing player in reality television,” Spencer — whose Pratt Productions will produce the feature — said in a statement to PEOPLE on Thursday. “You haven’t seen nothing yet,” the villain added.

Filming reportedly kicked off this week. No air date or network has been announced.


Will 'The Carrie Diaries' Follow 'Sex And The City' To The Big Screen?

Movie Trailers - Movies Blog

Now that "Sex and the City" prequel "The Carrie Diaries" is finally out, the obvious next question is whether we'll ever get to see this 17-year-old Carrie Bradshaw brought to life in a TV show or movie, like her grown-up counterpart.

"It's not in my hands, so there aren't any plans at this moment," Candace Bushnell told us when she stopped by MTV News this week. "We don't know what's going to happen."  

"Sex and the City" and "Lipstick Jungle" were both turned into TV shows, but Candace knows that not all optioned novels go on to become successful adaptations. "Every single one of my books has been optioned and one of my books has been optioned twice," she said.

"Sometimes all of the elements come together, and sometimes they just don't. One piece is off or one part of it doesn't work. There isn't that much that you can do about it. With each book, I just try to write the best book that I can."

But with "Sex and the City 2" hitting theaters on May 27, Bushnell doesn't deny the thrill of watching her creation live on. "It's amazing. I'm always in a way flattered by it," she said. "Everybody who works or has worked on 'Sex and the City' came with the same attitude that they wanted to make something great, and that's an attitude that they still have. I know that Michael Patrick King and Sarah Jessica Parker approach every movie with wanting to do the best they can and hope that the audience enjoys it."

And as she waits to see the second movie herself, Candace is already moving on to the next project. "I have to write 'The Carrie Diaries 2' as soon as I finish this interview!" she said. "[The sequel is] her first summer in New York. It's going to be fun. I don't want to say too much about it because I've written a chapter, and now I'm all excited about it."

Because the world wanted some more hot Snake-Eyes action...

The MTV Movies Blog had a chance to talk to producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and got a status report on the planned sequel to Stephen Sommer's summer 2009 hit G.I JOE: Rise of the Cobra, which grossed $300 million last  summer.   Although writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have yet to submit a full script, di Bonaventura is optimistic they'll be ready to start shooting the G.I JOE sequel sometime next spring for a summer 2012 release.

Otherwise, Bonaventura didn't have a lot to say and was unwilling to confirm who might direct the sequel, which actors may be back and whether they might join the current trend by shooting the movie in 3D, although he did say he was "open to it."

You can read the full interview over on MTV.

I didn't like the movie, I only went to see it to support Ray Park (who is all around adorable and sweet)!

Gwyneth Paltrow 'Going Crazy' After Fried Food Binge

In another life Gwyneth Paltrow would be a restauranteur, according to the Press Association.

"I think I would have a restaurant, I would be growing food or cooking food - I cook everything, a lot of American food, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, I make bread and fresh pasta... and I'm all about French cheese," she said.

Gwyneth recently had to gorge herself on fried food to play a country singer in the movie 'Love Don't Let Me Down.' Now she is trying to reverse the damage.

"The director did not want me to have muscles so I was eating whatever I wanted, tons of alcohol and fried foods - it was great," she said. "I've been going crazy now to get back into shape. Now I'm sort of into balance - that's my thing - I don't think that fried food is good for you, but life is short. I make my French fries home made."

One of her tricks to staying slim and young?

"Not eating processed foods is huge - I think processed foods really make you age," she said.

Lindsay Lohan's slow meltdown: It's all about Dad

The actress's painful public drama is a lesson in how hard it can be to grow up without a good man in your life

How much longer can the slow-motion train wreck that is Lindsay Lohan keep going? Lohan, a young woman whose main fame these days seems to arise from her Twitter feuds, has finally managed to chip away almost every other aspect of her persona -- once promising actress, sexy starlet, aspiring singer -- to assume the mantle of America's most shining example of father-daughter dysfunction.

Many of us who had shitty dads -- and folks, we are legion -- can't help feeling a little heartsick watching Lohan take that deep, instantly recognizable anguish and act it out on such an epic scale. Because while lots of us have baggage, few have made a music video called "Confessions of a Broken Heart" about it. Or tweeted about being "kidnapped" by a "crazy" person. Lohan's most recent publicity stunt/cry for help came earlier this week, via an eyebrow-raising photo shoot for Tyler Shields that features the actress cavorting in underwear against a bloodstained backdrop, brandishing a gun, and posing with her stilettoed feet far above her pretty head. And just in case you might somehow accidentally not see that last provocative image everywhere, it's now Lohan's Twitter page background.

The Hills Cast Destroyed by Fame--Us Weekly Scans

Cokeheads, Cokeheads, roly poly cokeheads…

Large scans so if you have a slow connection like dial-up…you should probably just give up on life.

Collapse )


Speidi are pathetically clinging to their 15 minutes through increasingly desperate publicity stunts like getting 10 surgeries in a day, accusing people of sexual assault. You know? The usual attention-grabbing antics.

Kristin’s a cokehead whose presence on The Hills was motivated by jealousy of the cast’s fame.

Audrina’s insecurities led to her getting her tits done. Though she denies having surgery, Stevie Wonder can see the size difference between her before-and-after titties.

She-pratt—was not even worth discussing or putting on the cover. She’ll have to stick with posting about herself on ONTD.

Lauren—is laughing at all of them with $12 million in the bank

BTW- If you have a twitter account and recently found yourself being followed by Speidi—don’t flatter yourself. It seems the desperate duo raided Lauren Conrad’s list of followers in a desperate bid to get themselves over 1 million followers. They correctly assumed you’d be flattered enough they were following you and follow them back. They were right. Both are following close to 70,000 people and Heidi has over 1 million followers now. Do yourself a favor and #unfollowSpeidi. MmKay?

"Family Guy" creator says Arizona law like Nazi Germany

By Phil Furey

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane has compared a tough new immigration law in Arizona to those of Nazi Germany.

MacFarlane, whose irreverent animated TV comedies have themselves provoked controversy, said the Arizona law was more shocking than anything he had done on television.

"It's too much. It's kind of a slap in the face, it's not the way to handle it...Nobody but the Nazis ever asked anybody for their papers," MacFarlane told Reuters Television in an interview on Thursday.

"Walking down the street, a cop can come up to you and say 'May I see your papers?' -- I think they should be required to ask that question in German if the law sticks around," he added.

Eva Longoria is none too happy about the Arizona’ new efforts to identify illegal immigrants, or its new education reform, which bans ethnic classes and singles out teachers who speak accented English.

Hitting up her Facebook acccount today, the Desperate Housewives actress writes: “What is happening? I feel like I am in a time warp! An aspect of the anti-Mexican hysteria that is getting lost: The Arizona Legislature just passed HB 2281. The previously bill signed by the governor targeted Mexican and Latino immigrants. This bill (passed two days later) goes after Chicana/o Studies, books and student organizations. HB 2281 (bill attacking ethnic/raza studies) states that any course, class, instruction, or material may not be primarily designed for pupils of a particular ethnic group as determined by the State Superintendent of Instruction. State aid will be withheld from any school district or charter school that does not comply.”


Arizona has forever tainted its name yet again. First, by refusing to acknowledge Martin Luther King and now this. Bigotry is just pathetic and no longer relevant.

Matthew Vaughn the Lead Candidate to Direct X

We reported a month ago that director Bryan Singer was not going to be directing an upcoming superhero film and now it seems that Fox has zeroed in on their top candidate to replace Singer. Deadline New York is reporting that Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn is the leading studio choice to direct X-Men: First Class.

The site reports that negotiations have been going on all week and it seems that Vaughn beat out other directors such as Daniel Espinosa (Snabba Cash), Rupert Sanders (The Low Dweller) and Jonathan Mostow (Surrogates).

Interestingly enough, Vaughn was set to direct Fox's X-Men: The Last Stand before leaving the project. We'll be sure to keep you posted on any new developments on X-Men: First Class as soon as we have more information.

X-Men: First Class comes to theaters in 2010. The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn.

No Doubt Releasing Full Tragic Kingdom On Rock Band

No Doubt is releasing their entire Tragic Kingdom album on Rock Band.

When last we heard of the connection between music games and No Doubt, the ska band was suing Activision for an undisclosed sum over of the use of their likenesses in Band Hero. No Doubt's suit claimed Activision "transformed No Doubt band members into a virtual karaoke circus act" by having them "sing, dance and perform over sixty songs" without getting their permission.

Rock Band, which doesn't use avatars of band members in their game, will see the new tracks next week. Here's the full list of No Doubt tunes:

* No Doubt – “Different People”
* No Doubt – “End It on This”
* No Doubt – “Happy Now?”
* No Doubt – “Hey You”
* No Doubt – “Sixteen”
* No Doubt – “The Climb”
* No Doubt – “Tragic Kingdom”
* No Doubt – “World Go ‘Round”
* No Doubt – “You Can Do It”
* Orianthi – “According to You”
* Picture Me Broken – “Dearest (I’m So Sorry)” *

They'll be available May 4 for the Wii, PS3 and 360, and will cost $1.99 per track, $14.99 for just the new tracks that haven't been previously released, and $19.99 for the entire Tragic Kingdom album. SOURCE

LC to return to ze hills?

Everyone's wondering whether or not Lauren Conrad will make a grand re-entrance on the last season of "The Hills," and that might be partly due to gossip girl Kristin Cavallari. During an interview with "Access Hollywood," she mentioned that it was a definite possibility. "I know that they’re trying to get her to [come back],” K-Cav said. "I hope that she does because I think that it would just be amazing." (Really? Don't you guys, like, have a rough history?)

Either way, SOMEONE should make a surprising comeback! Check out a few veterans we'd love to see, then cast your vote.

Oh, The Possibilities: We know that Whit's living the good life as a fashion designer and close personal friend of Kelly Cutrone, but what would happen if she went back to her old life? Would Whitney be completely over the catty Hollywood scene, or would she embrace her old buds and blend right in?

Oh, The Possibilities: Spencer lost it when Heidi's goody two-shoes ex-boyfriend Colby was in town to spread the gospel catch up on old times. Can you imagine how much Mr. Pratt would flip if Jordan returned and demanded Heidi back? (We haven't really thought this one through -- it could go very wrong.)JASON WAHLER
Oh, The Possibilities: Lauren's ex-boyfriend was the original heartbreaker on "The Hills" -- dating him even gave her a questionable rep (she's "the girl who didn't go to Paris"). If Wahler returned, would he and Spencer spark a new bromance, or is there only room for one bad boy now?

Oh, The Possibilities: Even though she eventually made nice with Lauren, we'll never forget that Bunney went behind LC's back and hooked up with Brody. If she showed up in town, not only would there would be a three-way maybe-fight between the Brody-struck ladies, but we anticipate some serious backstabbing.

Oh, The Possibilities: This former "Laguna Beach" stud has dated both K-Cav and Lauren, and we say, "Why stop there?" Bet if he were to waltz in that a certain boy-crazy Pratt sister (ahem, Stephanie) might take notice ...

Castle cliffhanger: It's too early for Richard and Kate to get together. Right?

Nathan Fillion has confirmed to E! Online what Michael Trucco — who’s recurring as robbery detective Tom Demming, wooing Beckett, and making Castle realize his feelings for her — hinted to us last week: The second season of Castle will end on an emotional cliffhanger. “I would say it’s left open. There’s no indication either way,” Trucco said when asked if there was a chance of him returning in the fall. ”What I can tell you is that obviously, there’s some decisions to be made in terms of these relationships. Things start to ramp up, get heightened, and a major wrench gets thrown into the works… Hearts will be aching, that’s all I can say.”
Fillion seemed to give a more straight forward response when E! asked if Beckett and Castle will get together: “I believe that’s called jumping the shark. Moonlighting did a very valuable lesson there.”
I agree that Season 3 is too soon for Beckett and Castle to become a couple. I vote they give us a kiss, and she pulls back. That seems to be the MO lately: The Good Wife, Bones… You give us little something to get our hearts racing, but nothing that releases the sexual tension, nothing from which the characters can’t recover. Win-win.
What’s your vote? How far should Castle and Beckett go?

Doctor Who Stars Explain Why Romance Isn't 'Necessary' In The New Series

So, in case you aren't aware of it by now, I'm a big (okay, huge) fan of "Doctor Who," the BBC series that's one of the longest-running science-fiction programs in television history. As I've been doing every Friday during the new season, I'm rolling out another segment today from my recent interview with the program's stars, Matt Smith and Karen Gillan.

This time around, the new "Doctor Who" duo discusses the hot-button issue of romance between The Doctor and his companion. As I mention in the interview, "Doctor Who" head writer and executive producer Steven Moffat has indicated that such romance isn't a recent development in the series, but for the series' stars, it's not a "necessary" development, either.

The next episode of "Doctor Who" airs on BBC America this Saturday at 9 PM EST.
