Britney Spears fights beau

Britney Spears had a huge public fight the other night with her boyfriend, Jason Trawick, at the Mondrian hotel in Los Angeles. The singer stormed out after she and Trawick -- who recently quit being the pop tart's manager in order to concentrate on being her boyfriend -- started arguing over dinner on Thursday.

A spy told Page Six, "Britney was rude to the waitress and then started arguing with Jason, saying she'd had enough. He was trying to calm her down, but she wasn't in the mood. They had been sit ting down for dinner, but just over 30 minutes into the meal, Britney decided she wanted to leave. 

She headed out of a back door of the hotel, with Jason following, still trying to calm her down. She looked furious. It's clear there is trouble in paradise" Spears' rep declined to comment.



No iPods for Eminem, thank you very much!
The 37-year-old rapper proudly rocked to his portable CD player as he arrived at his hotel in Paris on Monday (May 31) to kick off his European press tour.

A fave of Beyonce’s and Kanye West’s, Em reportedly checked into the hotel’s $17 000/night penthouse suite.

Meanwhile, the tracklisting for Eminem’s upcoming album, Recovery (out June 22) features a song with Pink. Still no word on whether they’ll cooperate on an accomodating music video featuring an aerial acrobatics routine.

Riley Keough Cast in “Jack and Diane”

Riley Keough (The Runaways) has been cast in Bradley Rust Gray’s werewolf flick Jack and Diane.

According to Bloody-Disgusting Keough will play Jack, a teenage girl who falls in love with another girl named Diane (Cara Seymour), but a love that becomes a struggle to keep alive as Diane begins to push her away after starting to have werewolf-like visions.

Keough, who most news sites take great pleasure in constantly emphasizing that she’s Elvis’ granddaughter, is something like the fifth actress to be cast in the role. Others who have since departed include Olivia Thirlby, Ellen Page, Juno Temple, and Alison Pill. All would have made excellent lesbian werewolf lovers in my humble opinion, not that I’m necessarily an expert in that particular subject.

Jack and Diane goes into production in June, if all goes well from here and Keough manages to stick with the role

PJ to the rescue! Or not.

Sir Peter Jackson says he will step into the breach and direct The Hobbit himself if it becomes the only way to ensure the US$150 million (NZ$219m) film is made after the sudden departure of director Guillermo del Toro.

Del Toro announced yesterday he had quit the The Lord of the Rings prequel over frustration with repeated delays. He had commitments to other films and said his resignation was "the hardest decision I've ever taken".

"It was simply longer than anyone expected, the fans and the film makers," he told The Dominion Post at his Thorndon home. "It was more a factor of the other commitments asking for a start [time] than The Hobbit needing a date to start."

Jackson and partner Fran Walsh, The Hobbit's executive producers, learned of del Toro's decision on Saturday. Jackson told The Dominion Post he was saddened by the director's departure, which was "amicable". Del Toro would continue as a Hobbit screenwriter.

Jackson met studio representatives yesterday to begin the search for a new director but wouldn't rule out directing The Hobbit himself if a suitable person could not be found.

what do you think, ontd? Obvs PJ is the ideal/perfect answer for this mess, but if he's unavailable maybe it's time to give Michael Bay Alfonso Cuarón a call.

Kelly Rowland "Commander" Video

"Kelly Rowland gets her groove on in the Masashi Muto-directed music video for her new single “Commander”, the first to be lifted from her forthcoming third solo album. When previously describing the video, K-Row insisted that she was putting a fresh spin to the tired and typical club based music video – and she certainly wasn’t lying. In the clip, Beyonce’s former backup singer can be seen going to war against her alter-ego in a dance-based battle, complete with fiery choreography, fierce hair flips and more confidence than Kayne West and Usher combined.
The “Commander” video really symbolizes how far Kelly has come as a solo artist and how secure she is with her new sound and current career path. Now all that’s left to do is to scrap “Shake Them Haters Off” all together and replace it with another dance floor anthem, because if Kelly keeps this up she’ll be the Queen of the clubs in no time."


I really didn't give a shit about this song but I really liked this video and the song is now growing on me.

Hood Rat music video

"R&B songstress Teairra Mari has released the billionth music video from her upcoming new album ‘At That Point’. I used to mack out to the Rico Love-produced ‘Automatic’ last summer. However, the Nicki Minaj-assisted song has gone really stale now, and she kind of left it too little too late. But anyway, check out the video for it below with Teairra and her female crew invading somebody’s parking lot:"


A Minute With: Clay Aiken, from "Idol" and beyond

clay aiken 2010 Pictures, Images and Photos

Singer Clay Aiken says he's returning to the music he loves with his fifth studio album since emerging seven years ago from the hit TV show "American Idol" which brought him fame but also some personal challenges.

Aiken, 31, was thrust into the spotlight as runner-up in the second series of "Idol" and learned along the way to stand his ground whilst also accepting the glare on his private life.

When his "dear friend" music producer Jaymes Foster gave birth to his son Parker in 2008, Aiken decided to come out as gay, a decision he was not happy to make but is glad it is over.

His fifth album, "Tried and True," released on June 1, contains songs from the 1950s and 1960s such as "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," "Misty," and two songs he sang while on "Idol" in 2003 -- "Mack the Knife" and "Unchained Melody."

This month he also embarks on a co-headlining tour with Ruben Studdard, the winner of "Idol" when Aiken competed, and plans to tour with his new album early next year.

Aiken, one of the top 5 best-selling "Idols," spoke to Reuters about his new album and career:

Ted Koppel's Son Found Dead


The son of former Nightline anchor Ted Koppel has been found dead in a New York City apartment, police said.

Andrew Koppel, 40, was declared dead around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday after police responded to a 911 call, Det. Joseph Cavitolo told TVGuide.com. A medical examiner will determine the cause of death, he said.

Koppel, who worked for the city's Housing Attorney, had been drinking all day Monday in a Hell's Kitchen bar, where he befriended a stranger, Russell Wimberly, the New York Post reported.

The two drank all day — Koppel drank straight whiskey — and did not eat anything, Wimberly, 32, told the Post, before they arrived at the Washington Heights apartment owned by Wimberly's friend, Belinda Caban, 53, around 11 p.m. Wimberly said he and Caban put Koppel to bed and called 911 a few hours later when he appeared to be not breathing.

Police will not comment on the Post's report, Cavitolo said.

Andrew Koppel, who lived in Queens with his girlfriend and baby daughter, was one of Ted Koppel's four children with his wife, Grace Anne. A call to Ted Koppel's rep was not immediately returned. Wimberly and Caban could not be located for comment.

Al & Tipper Gore are separating after 40 years of marriage.

Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, are separating after 40 years of marriage.

According to an e-mailed statement obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday, the Gores said it was "a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."

Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider confirmed the statement came from the Gores, but declined to comment further.

Al Gore lost the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush. He has since campaigned worldwide to draw attention to climate change, which in 2007 led to a Nobel Peace Prize and an Oscar for the documentary "An Inconvenient Truth."

Tipper Gore is known for her advocacy on mental health issues. She became interested partly because her mother suffered from depression.

The Gores have four adult children.


Victoria's Secret continues to ruin Transformers 3

Victoria’s Secret released a video last night congratulating Angel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for landing the plum role replacing Megan Fox in Michael Bay’s upcoming Transformers 3. (Bay apparently wanted to imbue the role of Shia LaBeouf’s breathless and running babe with deep theatrical chops.) While Paramount has yet to confirm the casting, a proud Victoria’s Secret  is crowing over their leggy girl hitting the big time: “Go get ‘em Rosie!” the lingerie giant preens in the video.

Harry Crane talks season 4 of Mad Men, his role on Burn Notice, and funny people

Mad Men fans are already familiar with Rich Sommer. The actor plays Harry Crane on that AMC hit.

But Burn Notice viewers will also meet Sommer this week, as he guest stars on the fourth season premiere of that USA smash.

Late last week, we spoke to Sommer, who called the TV Fanatic offices and shed light on both shows, along with his burgeoning career. Excerpts are below and we thank the actor for his time...

Crap I need season 4 in my life NOW. Screw this "you must wait till July 25" bullshit.

Alejandro is the official summer jam of 2010

Mods, reject the other post. I fucked up and sent in the last one before I was finished and the HTML therefore screwed up.

The first of the season's barbecues are already in the rearview mirror, which means it's about time to crown an official summer jam of 2010. After seven days and over 200,000 votes, the winner finally emerged, and according to your electoral prowess, Lady Gaga's "Alejandro" is the song of the summer.

Last week, MTV News proposed five nominees for that coveted title. In addition to "Alejandro," the possible winners included Katy Perry's "California Gurls", B.o.B's team-up with Paramore singer Hayley Williams on "Airplanes," Usher's "OMG" (currently enjoying another week at the top of the Billboard Hot 100) and 3OH!3 and Ke$ha's "First Kiss."

Voting began strong, with "Airplanes" taking an early lead on the strength of its crossover appeal to both hip-hop and rock fans. But in the end, it ended up a two-horse race between "Alejandro" and "California Gurls." In fact, Perry nearly secured the victory by trying to rally her more than two million followers on Twitter. "From East to West!" she wrote last week. "Vote #californiagurls the official summer jammy jam of 2010!"

In the end, it was Lady Gaga's contest to lose. Her supporters furiously rallied to best Perry by more than 10,000 votes. Whether it can eclipse Nelly's "Hot in Herre" remains to be seen, but "Alejandro" is off to an excellent start: It has been floating around the upper echelons of the Billboard Hot 100 for a few weeks, and the official video will debut next Monday, June 7. A preview will air on Tuesday's (June 1) edition of "Larry King Live," on which Gaga will be the guest.


Heidi Montag's Lil Prayer to God

"The reality-show personality Heidi Montag recently underwent ten plastic-surgery procedures on a single day. Montag told People that, before deciding to take these measures, “I prayed about it for a long time and said, ‘God, if it’s wrong, then I won’t do it.’ ” The full text of Montag’s prayer has only recently been made available:"

Some juicy bits: Why would God have made my plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan, so totally cute if He didn’t want me to use him?

My husband, Spencer, says that God sends us bad stuff to test us and to help us grow stronger, and I asked him, “Do you mean bad stuff like people telling me I have a Leno chin?,”

I’m not saying that You don’t love chubby and unattractive people; it’s just that Your making them chubby and unattractive is a handy way of saying, “Oh, look, there go some godless people.”

Lily Allen to Make Bridget Jones Sing for New Musical

Bridget Jones is headed to the stage. A musical is being developed based Bridget Jones's Diary, on the story of the plump, unlucky-in-love British career girl. British pop star Lily Allen has started to write the score for the new musical, which aims to open in London in 2011.

Bridget Jones was first introduced in a series of newspaper columns by Helen Fielding, before becoming a book by Fielding and then a mini-Hollywood franchise, with two films starring Oscar winner Renee Zellweger as Bridget. Fielding is said to be working on the script for the stage version.

Allen, according to a report on contactmusic.com, has written just one song for the show so far. The 25-year-old chart-topper released Alright, Still, her first studio album, in 2006 and saw a hit in both the U.K. and the in America with the song "Smile." Her well-reviewed follow-up album, It's Not Me, It's You was released in 2009. She previously announced plans to take a break from performing following her 2010 concert schedule.

It might be a ratings juggernaut and a cultural phenomenon, but the beach blanket bacchanal known as "Jersey Shore" came up surprisingly short in Atlantic City today.

Fewer than 100 people showed at an open casting call for the MTV reality show at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, where recruiters spent more than nine lonesome hours waiting for hopefuls in a ballroom.

At one point, a member of the "Jersey Shore" team was overheard calling would-be Snookis and Situations on the phone, urging them to hail cabs and hightail it to the casino for a shot at stardom.

Glee to introduce Christian character

Clearly, Glee's millions of fans applaud show creator Ryan Murphy's agenda to promote acceptance of everyone, regardless of race, creed or sexual orientation. But for the Fox hit's more conservative fans, Murphy has something special in the works.

"I'm adding a Christian character," he says. "We've taken a couple jabs at the right wing this year, so what I want to do with this character is have someone who Christian kids and parents can recognize and say, 'Oh, look—I'm represented there, too!' If we're trying to form a world of inclusiveness, we've got to include that point of view as well."

Murphy says this character (yet to be cast) will speak her mind and be listened to and respected — though likely not by Kurt, whose homosexuality she won't accept. This perky New Directions addition, coming next season, will also object to some of the club's sexually suggestive music selections. Good thing they got Madonna and Gaga in early!

Two characters we won't see yet: Rachel's dads. "I like feeling their parenting influence without meeting them," says Murphy. "At least for another season."

Guy Ritchie Targeted in House Break-In
By Simon Perry
Tuesday June 01, 2010 07:45 AM EDT

Where's Sherlock Holmes when you really need him?

Guy Ritchie's country house was broken into Monday morning and his household staff foiled a potential raid, PEOPLE has confirmed.

Employees for the filmmaker – who directed last year's Sherlock Holmes, starring Robert Downey Jr. – came to the rescue as they nabbed a man in Ritchie's home near Salisbury, Wiltshire, England, and turned him over to police.

A police rep told PEOPLE that a man has been arrested but not charged. Per police custom, the spokesman would not not name the man.

"We were called to a house following a report of a burglary," the spokesman says. "A 29-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and was taken to Salisbury police station, where he was interviewed by detectives. He was later released on police bail pending further inquiries."

Madonna's ex-husband, 41, who was in the house at the time of the incident, did not see the man. Members of his staff confronted the intruder in another part of the house, a source tells PEOPLE.

Ritchie's children were not in the mansion at the time. His spokesman had no comment.


Charlie Sheen will serve jail time in plea deal

Charlie Sheen will plead guilty to a misdemeanor offense and get 30 days jail time, says a source close to the negotiations in the star's ongoing domestic violence case.

"Charlie intends to go to court on June 7 [to] plead to a misdemeanor and immediately begin serving his 30 days in jail," says the source. "With good behavior, he could end up doing 15 or so days."

While Sheen, 44, had been charged with felony menacing, misdemeanor third-degree assault and misdemeanor criminal mischief following a Christmas Day fight with his wife, Brooke Mueller, 32, in Aspen, Colorado, the source adds that Sheen would not be placed on probation once he completes his jail sentence.

It's not been an easy spring for Sheen or Mueller. In February, Mueller entered rehab for substance abuse with Sheen seeking treatment a week later as a "preventative measure." The couple have been living in separate homes for more than a month while they "work on their marriage," and are currently sharing custody of their twin boys, Max and Bob.

Earlier this month, Sheen agreed to return to his CBS hit "Two and a Half Men" for two more years. The plea deal would allow Sheen to serve out his jail sentence with time to spare before the new season starts shooting at the beginning of August.

Narnia | Lioness

'Narnia' Updates.....

First, there is the news that the first official showing of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader will be in LA next week:
This is a cut that will feature whatever effects have been finished thus far, with mostly unfinished shots. Plus they add a temp score, usually with music that captures the emotion that the creators are going for. In this case, there have been two prior movies, so they may use cuts from those films to score it, but all of that will be replaced by a freshly written score sometime this summer/fall, usually after the final cut is locked.

And along with that news is something that true Narnia fans will appreciate: Douglas Gresham, C.S. Lewis's adopted son, was asked to come up with a name for Ramandu's Daughter, the star-descendant that marries King Caspian the Navigator: Lilliandil.


What do you think, Narnia fans? Personally, I love the name, but I've been waiting since I was 6-years old to find it out. And because it's from Douglas, I consider it canon.

A History Of The World... In Movies

Ditch the textbooks, here's what Hollywood says happened:

The Dawn Of Man
As Seen In: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968); One Million Years B.C. (1966); Quest For Fire (1981); 10,000 B.C. (2008)
In A Nutshell: Apes evolve into mankind under the baleful influence of a monolith from space, which teaches them to develop tools to kill each other with. The Earth's fledgling caveman population has to fend itself against natural disasters and prehistoric predators, but the future of humanity is assured thanks to gorgeous cavegirls in loincloths. Hooray for loincloths.
Fidelity to Fact: Alien intervention? Humans and dinosaurs co-existing? Anthropologicals will have a heart attack, but be honest - it's more fun this way. Although the grunting, we'll admit, is probably authentic.
Character You Won't Find in the History Books: The monolith. And that's just the way it wants it.

Khloe Kardashian is two months pregnant RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Her sister Kourtney gave birth to son Mason Dash Disick on December 14, 2009 and Khloe is so in love with the baby that she wanted one of her own!

Khloe married Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom on September 27, 2009.

“Khloe was inspired by Kourtney having a baby,” a source close to the family tells RadarOnline.com. “Lamar is happy and ecstatic about being a father.”

The source tells RadarOnline.com that the family is elated by the news.

“Kourtney is having cravings of fruit and ice cream,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “They’re really happy, but Lamar is a little weary of exposing his baby on TV. He already doesn’t like his life being played out for everyone to see eight months of the year.”

Lamar’s misgivings stem from the fact that Khloe’s pregnancy is sure to be featured on the family’s reality TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The Canadian-born Cameron is considered an expert on underwater filming and remote vehicle technologies.

"Avatar" and "Titanic" are the two highest-grossing films of all time.

Is There Power Left in Heroes?
Jun 1, 2010 11:07 AM ET
by Michael Logan

Heroes ended its season last February with the indestructible Claire (Hayden Panettiere) throwing herself from the top of a Ferris wheel in front of the media, revealing her superpower to the world. Should the axed series return with a wrap-up miniseries—that's creator Tim Kring's hope, and he says he's meeting with NBC this month to discuss it — the plot will skip ahead a year or so to see the effect of Claire's revelation.

"There will be a huge cultural and social change in the world," says Kring. "Some [of our characters] will be hiding, some struggling, some basking in the glory."

Claire, who desperately wanted a normal life, will become a reluctant spokesperson for the abnormals. Sylar (Zachary Quinto) will again struggle with his dark side. And Adrian Pasdar will likely return, though not as Nathan, who died.

Kring is confident he can lure back his entire cast if he gets a green light. (NBC refused to comment.)

"I've spoken with everyone," says Kring. "They're all eager to participate."

Who Will Play Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Daughter in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Scientology Movie?


Other movies will be released between now and next year, we guess, but the only one that really raises our Thetan levels is Paul Thomas Anderson's as-yet-untitled, Philip Seymour Hoffman–starring Scientology movie. As such, we are duty bound to inform you that, according to Production Weekly (via the Playlist), Amanda Seyfried, Emma Stone, and True Blood's Deborah Ann Woll are all being considered for the role of Elizabeth, the daughter of Hoffman's cult-leading character in the film. (Last week, PW claimed that Reese Witherspoon had been offered the part of Elizabeth's mom.) Since we trust PTA's infallible judgment, we'd be happy with any of them. But which member of this trio do you think could most believably have sprung from Philip Seymour Hoffman's loins?

January Jones And Adrien Brody Secretly Dating?

What did you do this Memorial Day weekend? Hit up the beach? Go to a party? Go to a Memorial Day beach party in Malibu hosted by director/producer Joel Silver with tons of celebs and flame rumors about your secret love affair? No? Well, barbecues are nice too.

January Jones took a break from filming Mad Men scenes to enjoy the holiday festivities and her rumored beau Adrien Brody attended the same party. The two were spotted recently having a romantic night out at Rose bar in New York. A source told Life & Style magazine "Brody and Jones were flirting with each other. They held hands in full view of everyone." How could it not be true? Who could resist this face? They two came and left the party separately though, Brody on his macho bike. Boo.

The Hunger Games To Get A Director This Summer

The book has amassed quite a following and Collins has even written two subsequent stories, one called Catching Fire and another called Mockingjay, which is due out on August 24th. MTV was on hand at a special Scholastic event during which Collins read the final pages of Catching Fire followed by a sneak peak at the beginning of Mockingjay.

The big news for movie fans? Lionsgates didn’t just pick up the rights to Collins’ first book to throw them away; they’re adamant about bringing this story to life and far sooner than expected. The studio plans to announce the film’s director this summer and go into production in January 2011. Later that year, we should be able to see Katniss duke it out with her competitors on the big screen.

This is your cue; it’s time to read The Hunger Games, if you haven’t already. The book is fantastically addictive with big screen potential evident throughout. I’m about a quarter of the way through Catching Fire and can already tell a franchise is a serious possibility.


To tell you the truth I'm kind of meh about this rn but it may just be my mood.

Donald Glover for Spider-Man: The evolution of a meme

Late last week, we wrote about the idea of Sony casting a non-white Peter Parker for their Spider-Man reboot. Then...a thing happened. And suddenly, Community actor Donald Glover has rallied the internet to his cause: getting him an audition.

If you'll recall, the original post asked the question: In the face of such underwhelming Caucasian options, why couldn't Spider-Man be played by an actor of color? In the comments — which ranged from encouraging to offensive, as one would expect — someone named "Rootadoo" suggested that Community actor Donald Glover would be perfect for the part. And then Donald Glover himself found out — and he's been tweeting up a storm: Over Memorial Day Weekend, #Donald4Spiderman was a top 10 trending topic. And then someone created a "Donald Glover 4 Spiderman" Facebook group. And it made the Washington Post and New York magazine, along with the standard coterie of comics sites.

Glover is quick to say that he doesn't just want to be given the job — which he'd be great for, incidentally — he wants to be able to audition for the job. Which was the whole friggin' point in the first place.

celebs and their first jobs

Who was a Hooters girl?
Who used to hustle for commission at a jeans store?
Who used to sleep in corn fields in Vermont?
Who licked stamps for some extra cash? 
Who was a professional rat-shooer?
And most importantly, WHY does Christopher Walken always seem to find a way to out-awesome himself just when you thought he couldn't get any more awesome?

The true HBIC of the rap game does Puerto Rico

We've been pretty upset about Lil Kim's plastic look for a few years now. Usually she looks like a melting ball of wax that was just peeled off the surgical table.

But she popped up in Puerto Rico this weekend for her BFF LisaRaye's B2B conference. And she looked more fab than usual even with her wig and post surgical features. A few more pics when you read on...

Rupert Grint once slept in a graveyard

Rupert Grint once got so drunk that he passed out in a graveyard.

The 21-year-old actor - who stars in new comedy 'Wild Target' alongside Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt - admitted he could at times be just as big a party animal as his character in the movie, who wakes up hungover inside a sofa cover in one scene.

He told BANG Showbiz: "I really overdid it once when I woke up in a graveyard. I'd been at my mate's house, we'd been asleep, then there was alcohol involved and we went out.

"A graveyard really isn't the nicest place to wake up!"

Despite his impromptu night sleeping next to the tombstones, Rupert - who is best known for his role as Ron Weasley in the 'Harry Potter' franchise - thinks he has been very fortunate to have managed to keep his partying out of the public eye and not go off the rails in the way many other former child stars have.

Speaking about his 'Harry Potter' co-stars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe - who play Hermione and Harry respectively - he said: "No I'm pretty lucky, I've stayed out of it... We all stayed out of it. We kept quite low-key, that's the way to do it."


That sounds fun ngl. Also, I just want him to branch out away from the one-dimensional Ron the HP movies have created.

Is the "rule of threes" real?

There's an old saying that celebrity deaths always come in threes (old, that is, if you're the kind of person who frequently reads or writes about celebrity mortality).

Sometimes it just seems to ring true. Back in June 2009, there was the funereal trio of Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett and Ed McMahon. When actress Brittany Murphy passed away in December of last year, followed swiftly by socialite Casey Johnson, the very morbid among us were trying to place a third. Some tabloids argued that though it happened several months later, Corey Haim's death by overdose fulfilled that triumvirate.

Going back another year -- to January 2008 -- Brad Renfro, Heath Ledger and Suzanne Pleshette all died within a week of each other.

This week, people are again talking about the "rule of three" in relation to the deaths of Dennis Hopper, Gary Coleman and ... well, no one is entirely sure just who to make the third. Is it Simon Monjack, Brittany Murphy's mourning widower, who passed away of a heart attack late last month?

'Real Housewives of New Jersey' benefit drama: Blindsided by Bravo, organizer says

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" episode last night didn't show the half of the chaos
caused by Danielle Staub and her uninvited entourage, the event's organizer says.

"We were kind of blindsided with the whole thing,"
says Domenick Petrillo, the president of the North East Ridge Runners organization. "I said to the person I spoke to, 'You can come in, but this is not a circus. You can come in with one camera and film Danielle. The next thing I know there's six cameras and a whole entourage."

Lindsay Lohan - Can Take Meds for Dental Surgery

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It might seem like bad timing -- that Lindsay Lohan was ordered last week to submit to random drug testing, just days before she had her wisdom teeth pulled ... but we've learned Lindsay got a pass from probation.

Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley tells TMZ, "We advised the Probation Department of the dental appointment, which was made well in advance of last week's court hearing." Chapman says she assured the probation officer she would provide "documentation about any medications that Lindsay would be taking, which would be administered or prescribed as part of the procedure."

So whatever sedative Lindsay got in the oral surgeon's office, and whatever she's taking for the pain ... won't count on the drug test.

Iranian author Roxana Shirazi's 'The Last Living Slut' Tells All About Her Affairs With Rock Stars

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Roxana Shirazi engaged in some risky sex while hanging with rock's raunchiest hair bands. But the unrepentant groupie is courting bigger danger with her memoir, "The Last Living Slut: Born in Iran, Bred Backstage."

Shirazi says several editors and agents passed on her manuscript for fear of a fatwa - the Islamic death sentence that once put "Satanic Verses" author Salman Rushdie in fear of his life.

But her two champions, authors Neil Strauss and Anthony Bozza, finally persuaded HarperCollins to publish it under the new Igniter imprint.

Wonderfalls - Where are they now?

Wonderfalls was a critically-acclaimed and very shortlived series that FOX cancelled after it only aired four episodes in 2004. Thanks to the loyal and dedicated following of the show, 20th Century Fox released all 13 produced episodes on DVD, which is how the show became a cult favorite. This post takes a look at what the show's actors have been up to since the show got cancelled.

Spencer Pratt "Trying to Signal Aliens"

Spencer Moves Out After Erratic Behavior

Spencer Pratt’s “crazy behavior” drove wife Heidi Montag and friends “to the edge”, according to a former Speidi insider, who spoke out exclusively to RadarOnline.com.

“Spencer has moved out of their Pacific Palisades house... he’s no longer living there,” dished the defector.

In the bizarre world of Heidi and Spencer, some skeptics aren’t sure if the couple’s separation is a desperate ploy for attention.

International Superstar (& Superhot) Athlete Supports Gay Rights

Cristiano Ronaldo gives the thumbs up for gay marriagge

As soccer fans around the world get ready for the FIFA World Cup, which begins in South Africa on June 11th, the sports pages of newspapers worldwide are doing their usual job of ratcheting up expectation by profiling participating team rosters and team members.

Portugal's Púbilico is no different than other papers and yesterday they featured an interview with Portuguese-born Cristiano Ronaldo (pictured above), in which he made worldwide headlines by expressing discontent and frustration about his first six months as a player for Spain's Real Madrid.

In the same interview, Ronaldo was also asked whether he followed developments in Portugal including the recent approval of a law that allows same-sex couples to get married.  His response:
The Portuguese man that I am, I try to keep informed about what is happening in my country.  I know the law was passed and the comment it deserves is that we must respect the choices made by anyone, because, after all, all citizens should have the exact same rights and responsibilities.
This is a breath of fresh air coming from one of the top players in a sport not particularly known for its tolerance or respect towards gays.

Wasn't it just earlier in the month that I covered the latest homophobic flare-up in the soccer world?  In that instance, as it often does, media was only happy to fan the flames by gleefully questioning whether this image proved that two Barcelona CF teammates were gay.
An update: Back then, I described how one of the players in the image, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, had angrily reacted to questions about his sexuality by lashing out at a female reporter and asking her to come home with him so he could prove he wasn't a 'fag'.

Since then, the other player in the image has also addressed the controversy.  In an interview posted on May 24th, Gerard Piqué (pictured right) says that the image in question was actually taken in March after both players had left a press conference in which Piqué had presented his published auto-biography.  Piqué believes that the image was held for days and only released at a later date in order to shake the team's stability during the season's final games.

Piqué doesn't directly address Ibrahamovic's angry outburst but does say that, at least at the time the image was released, both players took it in stride. "We saw it on the television in the dressing room," he said, "and we were both cracking up in laughter."

Professor's Comments (yes I know this is lame, haters please form a line to the left)
I am not a sports fan but I am all for any guy, especially a popular athlete that shows any support for equal opportunity. Too bad that it had to come from someone from another continent and not in the U.S. Let's at least applause this dude no matter where he's from! Oh and by all means a picspam of him is not only encouraged but expected.

ETA: Mods? Is there a Gaga post in the queue at all??? So many comments just needing one ASAP. Thanks!

HOUSE M.D. may end after season 7

Wanna good scare? Imagine the end of House. And with Hugh Laurie’s contract up next season, it could happen. “I have no idea” how much longer the show will run, he tells me. “I only hope we’ll know when the time is right [to close up shop]. When people blunder on for five years after [they should have called it quits]… it gets taken out of your hands. Someone will say, ‘That’s it.’
“But for now,” he adds, “I’m immensely proud of the things we did this season.”

As well he should be. The crushing finale alone stands as the actor’s finest work to date (and that’s saying something!). So, given the quality of material he’s still getting to play, it shouldn’t come as a shock that he says “I am open” to continuing beyond season 7.

Laurie maintains that the idea of hanging up House’s stethoscope for good isn’t something he’s had time to dwell on — not yet, anyway. “This sounds like I’m trying to avoid [the question]. I’m not,” he insists. “I have the brain of a hamster and I can’t think beyond 5 o’clock this afternoon. I really am that stupid.

“I can only say,” he continues, “I think we’ll have a sense next year at some point” about whether to keep going.


do you think they should end it??

It's time to stop griping about the quality of Jackie Chan's US roles.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I admit it freely. I was one of the early, vocal doubters of the US remake of The Karate Kid. And having just had the chance to see it, it's time to eat some crow and admit I was wrong. Yes, the title is a complete and total misnomer - the sum total of karate in the film is a less than one minute clip of a Teach Yourself TV show that Jaden Smith's Dre watches - but put that aside.

This is a good film. No, this is better than good. And a big part of why is Jackie Chan, who is absolutely fantastic in it. Granted, I have yet to see The Shinjuku Incident or Little Big Soldier but of the Chan canon I have seen - which is A LOT of them - this is easily the richest and most nuanced performance he has ever given. And it'll be a crime if people don't see it or take it seriously because it's a support role in a remake of a 1980's teen drama.

Chan, to be brief, takes to the wise old mentor role like he was born for it and - more than that - when the big emotional moment for his Mr Han comes rolling around, he nails it. He absolutely nails it. Maybe its because his character lets him stop worrying about the quality of his English. More likely it's because it's a character that suits his actual age and stature in life. Even more likely it's that it puts away all the mugging for the camera and takes the man seriously. Less Spy Next Door, Jackie, and more of this. It's what you're built for. Jaden's perfectly fine, too, by the way. Doesn't quite hit his big emotional moment but delivers a solid acting performance and is actually quite impressive physically. This kid put his work in.

The Karate Kid is going to end up being one of those films people cite on the pro-remake side of the argument. It's a film that takes a successful original, finds a new and genuine voice for it while also respecting the source, and packages it in a way that'll make it a hit with a brand new audience. I took the boy with me tonight and he absolutely loved it.


this movie has gotten nothing but positive to extremely reviews after the pre-screenings and I couldn't be more excited for it ♥

Lindsay Lohan: The Flying Nun

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Her behaviour isn't exactly saintly, but Lindsay Lohan looked rather like the Flying Nun as she left a LA dentist today.

The troubled Mean Girls actress had her wisdom teeth removed and left the surgery with a giant bandage wrapped around her jaw.

She tried to keep her face hidden under a white hooded jacket which gave the illusion of wearing Sally Field's famous habit.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The 23-year-old was very nervous before undergoing the procedure.

She told her Twitter followers: 'Night night... before I am bed ridden from getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow - wish me luck - I'm scared.'

It was a painful end to what was an otherwise fun Memorial Day weekend for the star, who spent it catching up with friends at Malibu beach.


who has the crazier head gear? ke$ha or SJP?

This weekend, Ke$ha attended the MTV VMAJ Awards in Tokyo and, in total Lady Gaga style, she wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to make a statement on the red carpet. Oh, but what a statement it was! The ornate feathered piece (left) was part Native American, part goth, and part nuisance for whoever was sitting behind her.

But perhaps Gaga wasn’t her only inspiration: Days before, Sarah Jessica Parker turned up in a massive Philip Treacy head piece (right) for the London premiere of Sex and the City 2. Maybe she took a cue from her Treacy hat from the 2008 London premiere of the first film. The lime green number now looks harmless compared to this more recent Bride of Frankenstein-esque piece.

But it looks like SJP has a thing for kooky head decor. In the SATC sequel, she also dons a lace crown-headband. Word to the wise: Just because it’s from Bendels does not make it okay!

What do you guys think of their head gear? Who works it better?


um ke$ha wins, how is this even a question?
