Crazy Criminal Minds Stan to Local TV Station: Do You Know What is on at 8 O'Clock!?

Do Not Preempt Criminal Minds with News of Life-Threatening Weather





This is an angry message left by a Texas woman — I presume with her cable provider or local CBS affiliate — after the season finale of "Criminal Minds" was interrupted by a tornado warning.

Actual quote:
"Do you know what is on at 8 o'clock? Criminal Minds. The latter half of it will be interrupted because of this douchebag was on my damn screen, talking about a freaking damn tornado that wasn't anywhere near me. I don't appreciate that bullshit. It would be different if it was near me."

"That is what a freaking commercial break is for."

"I don’t care about that tornado near that county, near that town. I don’t care about those people. All I care about is seeing the season finale of my show."

Will Paramore Singer's Topless Photo Help or Hurt Her Career?

From the April issue of Kerrang Magazine:


Last Thursday, over 600,000 Twitter followers of Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams, 21, got an unexpected surprise. A topless photo was posted as a "twitpic" on Williams account.

Minutes later the photo was taken down but the damage was done. Tumblr keyword "Hayley Williams" Thursday night and the first fifty photos were of a topless Williams with captions like "I thought she was hot before she got naked!" and "Boobpocalypse 2010!"

Hayley posted immediately that her Twitter account was hacked and she was not the one who posted the photo. With Paramore being, or used to, a Christian band what does it mean for the fans? Will Paramore lose fans from the obvious display of un-Christian like behavior, or will they keep supporting the band?

Like Hollywood says, a nude scandal only boosts a celebrity's popularity and that's been proved with Hayley's "Boobpocalypse". Even if Paramore lost some of their religious fan base the lead singer gained almost 50,000 more followers since that fateful Thursday night.

Hayley later responded to fans' support, saying, "Always knew we had the greatest fans. Thank you so much for all the support. Overwhelming...Today day is a new day. Gonna keep my head up high."

She didn't seem to be phased by the incident, and even showed her fans that she has a sense of humor of the incident by tweeting: "Pretty much my day has consisted of folding and organizing clothes. You aren't gonna believe this.... but... I have a whole lot of shirts."

Colin Wilkinson own show on E!

Colin Wilkinson looking to get own show on E! Network.



So I got the chance to talk with Colin Wilkinson (brother of reality star Kendra Wilkinson) and we started talking about him having his own show on E! I told him he could make an online petition and he asked me to make one for him and to put it on his facebook and he'll promote it.

Colin said "It'll never work because it'll be too real for reality tv" but to... "try it anyway."

He's a REALLY nice guy!! He also told me he's starting his own company called "C-Dub Entertainment" but he wouldn't tell me what it's about. I guessed record label ?

Cops: The Situation's Abs Pose a Threat

TMZ has learned The Situation was ordered to cover up his stomach this weekend after cops became concerned that his belly flashing was causing a large crowd to get violent.



It all went down at the Aztec Ocean Resort in Seaside Heights, NJ -- where according to officials more than 3,000 people gathered on the streets to watch The Situation dance on a hotel balcony.

According to the Seaside Heights Chief of Police -- people were getting pushed and shoved in the crowd when The Sitch removed his shirt ... so the Chief personally asked the "Jersey Shore" star to cover up and tone it down before the crowd got out of control.

The Chief tells us The Situation totally understood and even put his shirt back on ... but it's only a matter of time before it happens again!!!

Nina Dobrev interview


Congratulations on the show’s success!

Nina: Thank you! Thanks so much. I’m really excited that it’s been doing so well. We all kind of hoped and expected, well we didn’t expect, but we hoped that it would be. We were pleasantly surprised and it’s what everyone wants: to be on a show that people look forward to watching, and I think it’s one of those shows.

Going into it, did you think “this is going to be a huge show.,this is going to take off”?

John Mayer is singing the blues.

The crooner has canceled several shows in Europe due to illness, according to a posting on his Web site.

Mayer is "returning home to the States and a full recovery is expected under a doctor’s supervision," says the statement, which does not disclose the nature of his illness.

Earlier this week, Mayer played a sold out show in Copenhagen, but has cancelled his second performance in the city. “Regrettably, the illness has caused his remaining European shows scheduled through this week to be cancelled as well (Amsterdam, Madrid and Manchester)," says the message. "Ticket holders should apply for refund from point of purchase."

Mayer is scheduled to continue his tour in the United States starting July 16 in Charlotte, N.C.

Jersey Shore' Hopeful -- A Real Jersey Queen

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A New Jersey beauty queen wants to get with Snooki and The Situation -- not the way you're thinking -- as a new roommate for Season 3 of "Jersey Shore."


TMZ has learned Margaret Skourlis -- the current Ms. NJ United States (yes, that's a real pageant) -- auditioned for the show last week.

Margaret -- who's not Italian, but Greek-American -- tells TMZ she thinks she'd get along with Snooki, and claims she can handle the "JS" crew after surviving beauty pageants ... "We're not as evil to each other but we're just as snippy in other ways."

Margaret's best credential: She told us pageants and "Jersey Shore" both "excenturate things." Your guess is as good as ours.

We're told no final decisions have been made on casting yet.

Britain’s Got Talent , hopeful Maxxie Oliver has been disowned by both his parents for being gay..

The Lady Gaga impersonator, who will appear on tonight’s(already aired) BGT semi final, admitted that after not speaking to him for more than seven years his dad did get in touch when he saw him on TV, but only to disown him forever.




I haven’t been in touch with my dad for seven years and I got an email about three weeks ago."

“He said, ‘I’ve just seen your video. I’ve got to say I’m ashamed. Just to let you know, you’ve been disowned.

“‘I don’t want you to be my son any more. Being gay is your personal life, but being a transvestite is being sick.’”

“He thinks it’s not normal that I’m gay and a transvestite. He said, ‘Get in touch with me and I’ll take you to see a specialist who will be able to help you.’

“It’s hard when you don’t hear from your parents and your dad actually says to you, ‘I don’t want you to be my son or have anything to do with me.’

“But I’m not used to having him in my life – it’s been seven years. “I didn’t even get back to him because I really don’t care what he thinks now.” (good for you sweetie!)

Maxxie also revealed that a year after his father walked out of his life, his mother moved to France and cut off contact with him when he wouldn’t join her. Maxxie revealed:

“She said if I didn’t come with her she’d never talk to me again or support me financially.

“I was just 15 and started working as a dancer in a gay club at nights to get money, as well as going to school in the daytime.” Maxxie said a pal bumped into his mum recently and told him she has just had a baby.

He added: “Mum said she knew I was on the show. She’ll only get in touch if she knows money is involved.

“I’d love to meet my little sister but if mum doesn’t want me to, I can’t.Every time I try to speak to her she says, ‘No, you’re not with me’, or doesn’t reply. “I don’t want people to feel sorry for me. I don’t have my parents but I’m a stronger person because of it.

“My friends are my family – I’d rather have them supporting me.”


This is his semi final act. The rotating piano/telephone is genius, Gaga should give him a call.

Katherine Heigl talking about another child

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Katherine Heigl is planning to have another baby.

The 'Killers' actress - who already raises seventeen-month-old adopted daughter Naleigh with her husband Josh Kelley - admits they are thinking about extending their brood further and hope to have another child in the near future.

Katherine revealed: "We would like to have a second child - adopted or biological. We're not ruling it out."


The 31-year-old beauty has been inspired to raise a second child by the recent earthquakes in the Caribbean nation Haiti, where the area suffered mass devastation and thousands of children lost their parents.

She told Germany's Gala magazine: "Just look at Haiti. They're so many parentless children. It breaks my heart. I want to help."

While Katherine is keen to lend her support to others, Josh believes an addition to their family would provide "a little friend" for their young daughter.

Although they have no specific plans at the moment, Katherine admits anything is possible because she is so spontaneous.

She added: "I often plunge into things and hope everything will be alright."

Katherine has always been dedicated to motherhood, and even quit her work on medical drama show 'Grey's Anatomy' so she could spend more time with Naleigh.

Joe Jackson's back in Gary today, still trying to bank on Michael in death



GARY | Construction of a performing arts center, museum, hotel and mega entertainment complex honoring Michael Jackson and his family are expected to be part of a major announcement today in Gary.

The Jacksons got their start in Gary, and patriarch Joe Jackson is back in the city this week.

Tuesday, he visited his former house at 2300 Jackson Street for an unveiling of a monument to his late son, King of Pop Michael Jackson. Later, Joe Jackson joined Gary Mayor Rudy Clay and Jackson Family Foundation President Simon Sahouri at the Gary Access Center, 839 Broadway, to tape a segment for a local cable show called "Eye on Gary News," hosted by LaLosa Burns, spokeswoman for Clay.

Joe Jackson dropped the words "recording studio" and "golf course" during discussion of the project, but Burns said details of the plan should be saved until today's announcement.

Olbermann SLAMS 'Lame Duck' Campbell Brown, Includes Her In 'Worst Person' List



Keith Olbermann set his sights on former colleague Campbell Brown Tuesday when he listed her as a runner-up in his daily "Worst Person In The World" segment.

Olbermann slammed the departing CNN host for telling The Los Angeles Times that creating a show with "an unbiased perspective" was more difficult to do than creating a show that's part of "the echo chamber." The Times never quoted Brown as calling out Olbermann specifically, but it filled in the blanks.

Despite saying that he "liked" Brown, Olbermann didn't hold back. He called her a "lame duck" host and characterized her recent round of interviews as the "I-Am-A-Martyr-To-Real-News tour":

Celine Dion still planning on returning to Vegas next year

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

News of Celine Dion’s pregnancy with twins from an in-vitro fertilization flashed around the world Monday, and the first thought here was if it would affect her planned March 15 return to a three-year run of 70 annual concerts at The Colosseum in Caesars Palace.

Celine and husband manager Rene Angelil put the fears to rest immediately.

“We will be there as scheduled,” they said. In a French-language interview with writer Michelle Coude-Lord of Celine’s hometown newspaper The Montreal Journal, Rene added: “The babies will be 5 months old by then. If everything goes as planned, we’ll be there next spring with no problem doing 70 shows a year.”

I talked Monday with The Journal’s news editor, George Kalogerakis, as he discussed Celine’s Las Vegas commitment with Michelle and reporter Dany Bouchard, who tracks Las Vegas entertainment for the publication: “It was very important to both of them to honor the contract. She takes the signing of the contract very seriously and worried a lot about the timing of the birth.

Her mother, sisters and a Montreal specialist have joined Celine in Florida. Twins run in the family: Six years before Celine was born, her brother Paul and sister Pauline arrived. Her grandmother also gave birth to twins.

This week, Rene arrives in Las Vegas for the first preliminary production meetings with Caesars Palace President Gary Selesner, Gary’s executives and AEG producers. Work also began this week in Montreal on the staging of the Caesars shows, with the same audio, lighting and multimedia engineers who produced the Britney Spears Circus Tour. Grammy Awards producer Ken Ehrlich is masterminding the new Celine shows starting March 15 with a 31-piece orchestra.

I'd love to see her in concert someday. I've always loved Celine's music.

Rye Rye Talks Debut Album, Motherhood & Working With Pharrell

Go! Pop! Bang!

M.I.A. has been grabbing the spotlight lately with her new music and controversial comments. Now meet her 18-year-old protégée Rye Rye, who she signed to her label N.E.E.T. Recordings.

In Part 1 of our interview, the Baltimore MC talks to Rap-Up TV about her energetic debut album Go! Pop! Bang!, due this summer, collaborating with M.I.A., Pharrell, Tyga, Blaqstarr, and Diplo, not knowing who M.I.A. was the first time they met, and the “Paper Planes” hitmaker’s motherly instincts.

One year ago, a pregnant Rye Rye had to make a life-changing decision at the age of 17. Should she keep her baby or focus on her burgeoning music career? She chose to have her child, who is now a seven-month-old girl named Kennidi Malaysia Battle. The Baltimore MC explains how she arrived at that decision and how her mentor/label boss M.I.A. stood by her side.

Rye Rye, whose debut album Go! Pop! Bang! is due this summer, also shares her thoughts on the state of female rap, lists her favorite femcees, and clears the air regarding previous comments she made about Nicki Minaj.

mariah is definitely pregnant



The is-she or isn't-she speculation is over. RadarOnline.com can exclusively confirm Mariah Carey is pregnant!

The 40-year-old pop diva recently dropped out of her next film gig -- a role in Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf -- fueling rumors that she's pregnant.

Now a source close to Mariah and husband Nick Cannon tells RadarOnline.com the couple -- who renewed their vows to celebrate their second anniversary in May -- are expecting their first child.

“They’re both very excited and very happy,” dished our insider.

When contacted, Mariah’s longtime rep Cindi Berger gave RadarOnline.com a rather cryptic comment.

“I’m not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this time,” the publicist told RadarOnline.com, a statement that did not outwardly deny the pregnancy.

Said our insider: “Mariah and Nick want to keep the pregnancy quiet as long as they can."

Which could explain why Mariah never got out of her Rolls Royce convertible during a road trip with Nick along the Malibu coastline on Saturday.

Kelly Clarkson's Next Album Will 'Take It Up A Level,' Songwriter Says



Kelly Clarkson's life might suck without Claude Kelly. So it's a good thing that the pop star and her "My Life Would Suck Without You" songwriter will soon be hooking up in the studio to work on tracks for her new album, a follow-up to 2009's All I Ever Wanted.

However Clarkson — who performed on the "American Idol" finale Wednesday night — is feeling these days, Claude Kelly is ready to use it as inspiration for the duo's next collaboration. "I'm ... really, really excited to go back in for Kelly Clarkson," Kelly told MTV News at the premiere for "Sex and the City 2" on Monday. He says that if you loved what they did on All I Ever Wanted, they're not going to settle for anything less this time around.

New RHoNYC HBIC arrested for DWI :(



A cast member of the hit Bravo reality show "Real Housewives of New York City" was busted for DWI early Monday morning in Southampton Village.

Sonja Morgan, 46, failed to halt at a stop sign on First Neck Lane at 2:16 a.m. and was pulled over by a Southampton Village officer, according to cops. Sources said she had been partying on the East End over the course of the Memorial Day weekend.

After failing a series of field sobriety tests, the ex-wife of J.P. Morgan's great-grandson John Adams Morgan refused to take a Breathalyzer test and was taken to local police headquarters and slapped with a DWI rap, according to cops.

Morgan, who is in her first season on the show, will appear in court to face the charge at a later date.

Bond Car For Sale; Men All Over the World Jizz Their Pants


James Bond's 1964 Aston Martin DB5, dubbed by auto auctioneers RM Auctions on Tuesday as the "world's most famous car," will go under the hammer in London in October and is expected to fetch over $5 million. It is the first time the distinctive silver-colored car has been available to the public to buy.

It is one of two, and the sole remaining of the original "007" DB5s that appeared on screen with Sean Connery behind the wheel in "Goldfinger" and "Thunderball," RM Auctions said in a statement.

The model comes complete with its "Q-Branch" gadgets including machine guns, bullet-proof shield, revolving number plates, tracking device, removable roof panel, oil slick sprayer, nail spreader, and smoke screen. Several of the gadgets are fully operational, although the machine guns are not real.

The car is being sold by US radio broadcaster Jerry Lee, who convinced the Aston Martin Lagonda factory to sell it for $12,000 in 1969, becoming its first and only ex-factory owner. It has remained in his possession and rarely been seen publicly over the past 40 years or so. Lee plans to use the proceeds from the sale for the Jerry Lee Foundation.

It will be auctioned on October 27.

Is Terri Gone for Good? Or Hooking Up With Finn?! Glee's Jessalyn Gilsig Weighs In



"If you don't have Sue and me, the show may as well be on the Disney Channel!"

So sayeth a Jessalyn Gilsig, aka the now former Mrs. Terri Schuester, who returned to Glee last night to sign her heartbreaking divorce papers with Will (Matthew Morrison), and cozy up to (ew!) Finn (Cory Monteith).

So is that the last we'll see of her? And is a FInn (ew) and Terri (ew ) romance (did we mention ew?) on the way?

Truth told, Jessalyn's still waiting to find out herself about next season. "I still haven't gotten my letter," Jessalyn reveals to us, referring to her official pick-up from Fox to come back this fall. "Enough! Where's my letter? Maybe I'll get it in a text. I have my parking pass, so I'll just show up." In case you happen to be a "soulless automaton" like those kids from Vocal Adrenaline, these are jokes people, jokes! Still, Jessalyn adds on a more serious note: "I'm feeling pretty confident about it. But I always like to have that little piece of paper in the end." (Ryan Murphy has talked about his plans for Terri in the second season, so she's safe).

Jessalyn is hoping more than ever now that she'll get to return to the addictive Fox series, especially after last night's episode, "Funk," in which she made a questionable new ally, Finn (Cory Monteith)—"It's the beginning of a really sweet friendship," she insists, and more on that below—and finally got to take part in a song-and-dance number (Beck's "Loser," sung by Cory and Mark Salling).

Moviefone's Unscripted for 'Killers' With Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl


Co-stars Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher drop by the Unscripted studio to show off their new scars from filming their new action comedy 'Killers,' and Ashton gives us an impromptu taste of his vocal talents when he sings our outro (we supply the autotune).

Apparently, injuries are common around Kutcher. When asked about getting hurt on the set of 'Killers,' Heigl produces a twisted ankle and several bruises as a result of Ashton being a "hard grabber." Kutcher goes on to talk about similar problems causing damage to his female co-stars on 'That 70's Show.' He's not just the source of the pain, but also gets his share of abuse, and has the evidence to prove it as he runs down a list of wounds including a ruptured eardrum and burns from hot bullet casings.

The two stars take a break from the laughs to talk seriously for a moment about how Katherine prepares her roles and Ashton's childhood growing up as a twin.

BURN NOTICE AKA BEST SHOW ON USA POST



Veteran actor Burt Reynolds will guest star on one of the USA Network’s most popular shows, “Burn Notice.” According to EW, Reynolds will appear on an episode during the upcoming fourth season that’s slated to begin June 3rd [at 9pm]. His character is being brought in to serve as a cautionary tale for Jeffrey Donovan’s alter ego, Michael.

“Burn Notice’s” series creator Matt Nix says that the 74 year old actor will play a retired spy who’s current life has taken a drastic turn since he left the “business.” Things haven’t been going well for him in his later years and he’s living under a false identity and profession.

“He’s now working as a bartender under an assumed name, and he gets into trouble with some very nasty Russian guys. He’s not precisely like Michael. He’s Michael should Michael succumb to some of the demons that haunt ex-spies.”

Dun, dun, dun!! We hope Michael doesn’t piss off the wrong people and is forced to get really bad plastic surgery and wear obvious toupees. Jeffrey Donovan’s too cool for that and we just couldn’t take it. We are excited to watch both actors ham it up on screen together and we love the addition of another sarcastic older gentleman on the show besides Bruce Campbell. No offense Bruce.

Richard Burton: "If you leave me I shall have to kill myself. There is no life without you"

Elizabeth Taylor has landed the July cover of Vanity Fair, sharing never-before-read letters from her two-time husband Richard Burton.



They divorced twice and ended up married to other people.

But now it has emerged that Richard Burton longed for another reunion with Elizabeth Taylor right up to the day he died.

In a heartbreaking letter written just hours before his death, but which she received a few days later, he said that he was happiest with her and asks for another chance.

It was the final word in their notorious affair and means so much to her that to this day she keeps it in the table by her bed.

The note is part of a series of unpublished love letters sent by Burton to Dame Elizabeth which she has released to show the place he held, and still holds, in her heart.

'Richard was magnificent in every sense of the word,' she said. 'And in everything he ever did.... He was the kindest, funniest, and most gentle father.

'All my kids worshiped him. Attentive, loving - that was Richard - from those first moments in Rome we were always madly and powerfully in love. We had more time but not enough.'

The letters, to be published in Vanity Fair magazine, show Burton's complex, passionate and occasionally tortured soul.

Joran Van Der Sloot Sought in Peru Murder

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Joran van der Sloot, the 22-year-old Dutch playboy twice arrested in the mysterious disappearance of American Natalee Holloway, has been named the prime suspect in the death of a young Peruvian woman found dead in a Lima hotel today, five days after she disappeared.

Stephany Tatiana Flores Ramirez 21, disappeared Friday and was found dead this morning at the Miraflores Hotel Tac in Lima, Peru. Flores was last seen with van der Sloot, the Dutch national who was twice arrested and released in connection with the disappearance of Holloway, an 18-year-old American student who went missing in Aruba five years ago this week.

Authorities believe van der Sloot has fled Peru, passing through customs into Chile, and is on his way to Argentina.

Flores left a friend's home Wednesday morning and was last seen that evening leaving a casino with Van der Sloot, according local media quoting to the woman's father, Ricardo Flores, a Peruvian businessman and racecar driver.

After splitting with husband Spencer Pratt, a "heartbroken" Heidi Montag had a girls' day out on Tuesday with new BFF and roommate Jen Bunney at a park in Malibu. Heidi looked dejected and somber as she sulked around the park with her dogs and Jen. She wore a pink tracksuit with hearts on the back pockets for the sad (in many ways) occasion.

Professor Xavier Knighted by The Queen

Patrick Stewart knighted at Palace

Actor Sir Patrick Stewart paid tribute to a former teacher as he was knighted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

The 69-year-old said he owed "literally everything" to the English teacher who first encouraged him to perform.

"Although many people in my life have had great influence on me, without this man none of it would have happened," he said following Wednesday's investiture.

The classically-trained actor is best known for his roles in Star Trek: The Next Generation and the X-Men films.

He was recently seen on the London stage appearing alongside fellow actor knight Sir Ian McKellen in Waiting for Godot.

Sir Patrick said his knighthood - announced in the New Year Honours List - had been "an unlooked-for honour".

"But as I grew up as a child, falling in love with the theatre and Shakespeare, my heroes were Sir Laurence Olivier [and] Sir John Gielgud," he continued.

"The knights of the theatre represented to me not only the pinnacle of the profession but the esteem in which the profession was held.
Sir Patrick Stewart (right) with the Queen Sir Patrick is best known for his roles in Star Trek and X-Men

"To find myself, to my astonishment, in that company is the grandest thing that has professionally happened to me."

The Yorkshire-born star said he would be celebrating his knighthood with Cecil Dormand, the teacher who first encouraged him to consider acting as a profession.

"He was the one that put a copy of Shakespeare in my hand [and] said, 'Now get up on your feet and perform'."

Earlier this week it was announced that Sir Patrick would chair a jury and deliver a talk at this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival.

The actor was recently seen at the Minerva Theatre in Chichester playing William Skakespeare in the Edward Bond play Bingo.

Second A-Team Clip is Once Again Ludicrous and Awesome (Yay for more flying tank scenes!)

One thing you gotta say about Joe Carnahan’s “The A-Team”: they sure seem to “get” that the original ’80s action-adventure show was ludicrous to the extreme, but at the same time incredibly, awesomely cool. Here’s a second clip from the movie (via MSN), which takes place directly after the first clip that gets to the heart of the ludicrous and the awesome. We’ve embedded both below for the full effect.

I don't care what haters say, I'm going to see this on opening day (mostly because of Sharlto though)

Real Housewife Danielle Staub Records Pop Song




Another Real Housewife is hitting the recording studio.

Danielle Staub, New Jersey‘s rabblerousing star, is following in the footsteps of Atlanta‘s Kim Zolciak and New York City‘s LuAnn de Lesseps by entering the world of pop music. In fact, Staub is currently recording a duet — a first for a Housewives star — called “Real Close” with singer Lori Michaels, who wrote the track.

“It’s a song about having commitment issues — one person is leaving, the other person is staying,” Staub tells PEOPLE. “It’s called ‘Real Close’ because you want to pull the person closer.”

Staub says there will be five versions of the song, which will be released in about eight weeks. “For the main version, the vibe is very sexy, very raw,” she says. “There’s going to be a dance mix, but the main version won’t be dance.”


But can she sing? “I sang in an R&B band when I was a young teen,” Staub says. “It’s been a long time since I exercised [my musical chops] but when I was sitting down going over Lori’s music, this song grabbed me.”

Staub, who met Michaels last year at a New York Gay Pride event, says they plan on doing future projects together, including a music video for the song.

Working in the recording studio with Michaels, who’s openly gay, has been both easy and comfortable for Staub. “I’ve been part of the gay community for thirty years,” she explains. “The gay community is the one place, in all honestly, that I’ve ever truly felt safe and loved for just being me. Nobody ever cared where I’ve been, what I’ve done. They just let me be me.”

As for her Real Housewives costars, “I don’t care what they think,” she says of their reaction to her move to become a recording artist. “I don’t have a relationship with them.”

Brooke Shields’ fur dream fulfilled in Denmark


Brooke Shields visited Denmark in March to act out her ‘little girl’s dream’: to design her own fur coat. The Hollywood star is thrilled with Kopenhagen Fur.



Wearing fur may be associated with something grandmotherish. Something you wear when you visit the opera, or if you are a rock star and wears it inside out. But I will advocate that both my generation and the younger generation can wear fur“, says Brooke Shields.

The comment fell as the American actress visited Kopenhagen Fur’s creative workshop, Kopenhagen Studio early in March. Here she began designing her own mink coat made of the best Danish fur skins. Brooke Shields chose to work with the short-haired, black mink.

Brooke Shields will be proud to be an exponent of the beautiful Danish fur skins in the U.S. She thinks that Kopenhagen Fur is very unique”, says Kopenhagen Studio’s Partnership & Alliance manager Natia Linneman and adds that the star has been intrigued by the way Kopenhagen Fur is organized and how the company centrally supports disease control and quality on fur farms etc.

Fur is a little girl’s dream

The gain for the Danish fur farmers is that well-established people are crazy about the product“, says Natia Linneman.

The visit of Brooke Shields, who at the age of 15 became famous for her leading part in the movie The Blue Lagoon, was arranged in February during New York Fashion Week, where Kopenhagen Fur, in cooperation with the design house J. Mendel, had a major event in the city. J. Mendel also helps Brooke Shields to design her coat.

I will wear the fur garment when I follow my children to school, when I drink coffee and when I sleep“, says Brooke Shields, who calls it a little girl’s dream to be able to design her own fur garment.

ThunderCats, Ho! New Series To Debut Next Year



Lion-O, Cheetara, Panthro and friends will return in 2011, as Warner Bros. Animation announced today it has begun production on an all-new ThunderCats.

The update of the popular mid-1980s cartoon will air on Cartoon Network alongside such other Warner Bros. series as Batman: The Brave and the Bold and the forthcoming Young Justice and MAD Magazine. The “21st-century reimagining” of ThunderCats is a collaboration with Studio4°C, the Japanese animation house whose credits include Tekkon Kinkreet, The Animatrix, Batman: Gotham Knight and Halo Legends.

“In addition to being Warner Bros. Animation’s first anime series, ThunderCats marks our most ambitious foray yet into fantasy,” WBA’s Sam Register said in a statement. “The realism and dynamic visual style we’ve achieved are sure to thrill viewers, and the cool weapons, vehicles and technology should help the show appeal to a diverse audience.”

Produced by Rankin/Bass, the original ThunderCats aired from 1985 to 1990 and inspired comic books, action figures and other merchandise, as well as a long-discussed, but yet-to-be-produced, CGI movie. (Warner Bros. acquired the rights to ThunderCats in 1989 when it purchased Lorimar-Telepictures.)

According to Warner Bros. Animation, the new incarnation is “a
sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes” that focuses on the story of Prince Lion-O’s ascension to the throne: “As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest for the fabled Stones of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.”

I’m not sure what the “valuable lesson” of mortality is, but the refugees from Thundera apparently will learn it. Only once, presumably.

First pics from 'Coriolanus', starring Ralph Fiennes and Gerard Butler



Ralph Fiennes
has assembled a great cast to assist him in bringing one of Shakespeare’s tragedies to the big screen with Gerard Butler, William Hurt, Brian Cox and Vanessa Redgrave all starring in his modern day Iraq War adaptation of Coriolanus.

New photos have emerged today thanks to KinoGallery (through JoBlo) which show off Fiennes and Butler on set and give a detailed look at Fiennes updated setting.

John Travolta and Kelly Preston call baby news "a miracle".

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

When John Travolta and Kelly Preston learned that they were expecting a baby, it was news they thought they might never hear again.

"We tried for several years, and we didn't think it was going to happen for us," the couple tell PEOPLE in an exclusive story in this week's issue.

Their daughter Ella Bleu, 10, also reacted with joy. "This is a miracle, and we feel blessed," Travolta, 56, and Preston, 47, say.

The family has been inundated with well wishes from fans. "We are so moved by the generous outpouring of support and goodwill we've received from people all over the world," they say.

Those close to the family, meanwhile, denounce speculation the couple are trying to "replace" son Jett, who died last year at age 16, with a new baby. A family friend says, "They can never replace him" and that the couple "always wanted to have more kids."

Lindsay Lohan: 'I Don't Do Drugs'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Lindsay Lohan boldly proclaimed in 2007, "I don't do drugs" ... even though her urine told a very different story. This is a PDF file of the results of her urine sample; the presence of cocaine was found. So shocking, I know. :(

TMZ has obtained a statement Lindsay wrote in connection with her 2007 arrest for driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, following a wild chase on Pacific Coast Highway. Link leads to another PDF of her handwritten statement.

As we just reported, according to the police report, Lindsay's urine showed the presence of cocaine.

And cops say they found a small amount of cocaine in Lindsay's pants pocket, but Lindsay had an explanation for the police: "I am wearing a pair of borrowed jeans from a friend/assistant ... She wore a pair of my jeans ..."

Lindsay also said, "I am sober. Promises in Malibu, CA, I left 2 wks ago or so & completed my stay & am & will continue to be drug free."

And Lindsay goes on: "[the assistant] and her boyfriend currently use & may have set me up."

Lindsay ends her statement with these words, "I don't do drugs. Thank you God bless."

I think the only surprising part of this situation is that she didn't claim it was Michael who had FAKE COPS DRESSED UP! sneak into her room and plant the borrowed coke pants there as a trap


ETA: A second TMZ article; explaining why this is all relevant now.


Lindsay Lohan refused to say under oath whether she was under the influence of drugs when she went on a wild chase down Pacific Coast Highway in 2007 ... TMZ has learned. And we've now obtained the police report from the incident showing Lindsay's urine tested positive for cocaine.

The lawyer for Tracie Rice, a passenger in the car Lindsay was chasing, claims during her deposition last month, LiLo refused to answer questions "regarding her drug use and/or possession on the day of the incident."

In legal papers obtained by TMZ, Rice's lawyer, Paul Hoffman, claims Lindsay invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and refused to answer the question.

As TMZ previously reported, when police pulled Lindsay over they allegedly found traces of cocaine in her pants pocket. She was charged with possession of cocaine but ultimately that charge was dropped when Lindsay pled no contest to two counts of DUI. Lindsay also pled guilty to two counts of being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Hoffman claims there's no problem with self-incrimination because the criminal case is over.

In the Santa Monica Police Department report, it shows Lindsay's urine test showed the presence of cocaine.

Hoffman wants a judge to force Lindsay to answer the question. He also wants the judge to force Lindsay to answer whether she feels remorse over the incident.

'Celebrity Rehab' in Talks with Liza Minnelli



TMZ has learned "Celebrity Rehab" is setting its sights on Liza Minnelli to headline its new season.

As we first reported, the show was put on ice yesterday because it didn't have the star power it needed to launch the season.

We're told the parties have been negotiating but no deal has been struck. Insiders say the figure being negotiated is "in the $500,000 universe."

We spoke with Liza, who says she has "no interest" in doing the show. But we're told negotiations continue.


Minnelli reportedly said in 2004 she went back into rehab for alcohol addiction.

We've previously reported the names of several other new cast members, including Tila Tequila and Jason Wahler.

We're told the show could begin shooting as early as Friday.

Queen of pop sleeps in a grocery store parking lot, remains flawless while doing so



Eccentric popstar Lady Gaga reportedly shunned the comfort of an expensive hotel room in favour of sleeping on her tour bus in a supermarket car park this weekend.

According to the Mirror, the singer travelled down to London from Birmingham on Saturday (May 29th) following a gig in the city. Upon arrival, she dropped off her luggage at the exclusive Dorchester hotel, where she was supposed to be staying with her staff, but refused to get off the tour bus. Instead, she slept on the vehicle overnight while it was parked outside a Tesco store in Kensington.

A source told the newspaper: "Seven hours later, at 10.30am, a Mercedes SLK arrived, as well as a silver people carrier bringing a bag of shopping. Maybe GaGa wanted the first batch of fresh hot croissants. Her guard slipped her out of the bus and into the Mercedes. Both the cars drove off, with Gaga heading to a recording studio."

Tonight (June 2nd) Lady Gaga plays the MEN Arena in Manchester.

Broken Bells – “Ghost Inside” Video (Feat. Christina Hendricks)

James Mercer and Brian Burton are smart to cede the video to Hendricks, who looks great as usual playing a broken android trying to find her way to a resort planet. It really isn’t hard to imagine Joan in such a futuristic setting — before Mad Men Hendricks starred in a few episodes of Firefly.

Robert Downey Jr. Is A Real-Life Superhero



While we’ve had fantasies about how we would interact with the affably handsome Robert Downey Jr. were we ever to run into him, one lucky Crushable reader actually did meet the Iron Man, and was very pleased to report how surprisingly nice of a guy he was.

On her blog, reader Katie reveals that RDJ visited her work, “to hang out with kids who have cancer” while he was promoting Iron Man 2, and she was surprised with how it all went down. She penned a letter to him of sorts:

“Surprisingly, you stayed for over an hour and made sure each kid got a pic, signature, and personal interaction with the real Iron Man…The staff wouldn’t admit it, but we were hanging around hoping we might get a chance to chat with you as well. Your handler lady said, ‘Let’s get one group staff picture.’ You weren’t having that. You said in your most authoritative Tony Stark voice, ‘Now let me tell you how this is going to go. I want an individual picture with each and every one of you. Let’s start a line and I’m going to begin with you (me!).’ You asked me my name and I managed to say it and you said, ‘It’s nice to meet you, Katie.’”

What makes ‘Breaking Bad’ so good

Unlike the self-important ‘Dexter’, this cable drama offers big laughs to go with the blood


Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan says his show is about “a protagonist who’s dying of cancer and who decides to spend his final months cooking crystal meth.” But the most implausible thing about it may be that it’s entertaining. When the show began three years ago on AMC, it sometimes seemed like it was cobbled together out of the clichés of “edgy” cable shows: Walter White (Bryan Cranston of Malcolm in the Middle) is a monstrous anti-hero like the star of Dexter, and the show exposes the underbelly of suburban life like Weeds. But since then, the show has increased its viewership every year; it found its own identity not with depressing drama, but weird, surreal comedic moments, like showing a Homeland Security agent whose car decoration reads “fighting terrorism since 1492.” Gilligan, the former X-Files writer who created Breaking Bad, says that he realized early on that the concept had to be leavened with humour or it would be “the kind of show you’d want to slit your wrists watching.”

Eclipse girls to be in Vanity Fair ~ Behind the scenes interview with Dakota




Now here's a lovely sight to perk up your afternoon.

Eclipse actresses Dakota Fanning, Ashley Greene, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nikki Reed, Elizabeth Reaser and Julia Jones gathered together and got cozy for photographer Norman Jean Roy's lens, posing for a spread in the July 2010 issue of Vanity Fair. We're just gonna go ahead and assume that the choice of dress color is a nod to the film's vampire theme.

In between snaps, the ladies dished on what it's been like to film the series—such as Reaser's unlikely assertion that being surrounded by heartthrobs like Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner doesn't get her all hot and bothered:

“Oh, it gets so old, you have no idea. It has no effect on me. They’re all gorgeous and lovely boys...You just want someone interesting and weird at a certain point. I have a massive crush on Larry David."

Maybe they should sign the Curb Your Enthusiasm curmudgeon up for a part in Breaking Dawn. Sparkly Edward Cullen is one thing, but a vampire Larry David? That's a whle new level of scary.

Victoria Principal donates to oil-spill cleanup

Wed Jun 2, 6:52 am ET

LOS ANGELES – As oil continues to pour into the Gulf of Mexico, Victoria Principal has stepped up with a $200,000 donation to help clean things up.

Oceana and the Natural Resources Defense Council say the actress made the donation to encourage the two nonprofits to work together to address the damage along the Gulf Coast and support a shift toward renewable energy.

The former "Dallas" star is among a handful of celebrities who have become involved with the cleanup efforts. Ted Danson, who serves on Oceana's board of directors, is an outspoken critic of offshore drilling. Director James Cameron met with officials to share his expertise on underwater filming and remote vehicle technologies. And Kevin Costner has invested more than $24 million to develop devices now under consideration to help clean up the spill.

MOUTHY Miley Cyrus is reportedly single again.

The teen star is said to have split from her hunk of boyfriend Liam Hemsworth following a huge argument at her Los Angeles home.

Cyrus apparently grew jealous of Liam’s success after he landed a top role opposite Sir Anthony Hopkins in the forthcoming Arabian Nights.

“The result was a vicious fight — and Liam bolted,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.

“He said he’s tired of her folks’ interference, and that Miley’s jealous that his film career has taken off.

“Miley, her family and all her baggage are too much for him to handle.”

Liam — who was living with Miley at her new mansion in Toluca Lake — has moved back in with his brother Chris at the Hollywood apartment they previously shared.

Spencer Pratt allegedly pulled a gun on a friend, who had been asked to deliver food to Speidi's house, when the friend was an hour late, according to Radar Online.

"Spencer and Heidi ordered one thousand dollars in just munchies from Gelsons Market and had it delivered to their house," the source told RadarOnline.com.

"One time they asked me to go pick up food for them and I was an hour late getting it back to their house. Spencer unleashed on me. "He pulled a Glock [pistol] on me at the door and called me a loser and a charity case. He started talking like a gangster and threatening me.

Once again returning to the kitchen, cookbook author, actress and host Padma Lakshmi presides over the judge's table alongside head judge Tom Colicchio, recent James Beard Award-winner and chef/owner Craft Restaurants, and judge Gail Simmons of Food & Wine magazine. Joining the series as a regular guest judge is Eric Ripert, award-winning chef and owner of the acclaimed Le Bernardin restaurant in New York City, the 15th ranked best restaurant in the world.

Episodes start on June 16th

Who Should Replace Guillermo Del Toro As Director of THE HOBBIT?
by Jake Lasker

As we learned yesterday, Guillermo Del Toro will no longer direct Peter Jackson’s production of The Hobbit due to uncertainty with MGM. Del Toro leaves the director’s chair vacant after two years of pre-production. The start date for the film is still up in the air and Jackson even said recently the film has never been greenlit. While this all sounds eerily familiar to Jackson’s failed attempts at a Halo movie a few years back, MGM has a lot riding on the success of this movie and it would be hard to imagine a scenario in which this film didn’t come together in the end.
