This is an iCarly post


Creator Dan Schneider uploaded a YouTube video of the cast getting ready for run-throughs today.




He also blogged the ratings for the latest iCarly special "iPsycho":

Friday night's performance of iCarly's iPsycho drew enormous viewership. The one-hour movie delivered 7.52 million total viewers, making it the most watched entertainment play on cable this quarter, basically matching this year's Kids Choice Awards.

Across most kid and teen demos, the performance of iPsycho was the highest rated telecast of the year of any telecast (broadcast or cable), with the exception of iCarly's iSaved Your Life and the Super Bowl.

iPsycho's ratings were nearly FOUR TIMES HIGHER than Nickelodeon's direct competition.

iPsycho was pretty funny. Gibby's brother is adorable and Jerry Trainor's new haircut looks awkward.

gay Menudo post (not ricky)



Angelo Garcia, once the youngest-ever member of Menudo and a bandmate of Ricky Martin's, has come out as gay in the pages of TV Notas (Junio 8, 2010). In the piece, he says he's never been closeted: "I'm very honest about who I am, but I don't like labels...people need to understand that someone's sexuality doesn't make the person. I'm more than that, a son, brother a musician..." But I believe he is confirming his identity publicly for the first time on the heels of appearing nude in a gay magazine.

Elizabeth Reaser at the Movie Awards

From Celebslam:

"You may know Elizabeth as Esme from the Twilight series of films or, more likely, as the chick whose nipple you saw on this post. I'm actually a little surprised. Out of all the Snookis, JWowws, and Paris Hiltons at the Movie Awards, this was the last chick I thought who'd be showing her nipple. I actually bet a friend $20 that Paris Hilton would flash her uterus at one point during the show. Unfortunately, the camera never came in for a close-up. Just my luck!"

Cruise planning a Les Grossman movie

Tom Cruise: Look Out for More Les Grossman
Mon., Jun. 7, 2010 7:17 AM PDT by Marc Malkin

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

We probably haven't seen the last of Les Grossman.

Tom Cruise told me backstage after his Tropic Thunder's alter-ego performance with Jennifer Lopez at the MTV Movie Awards that…

He's hoping for a Les Grossman movie. "We're working on it," he beamed. "Yup, we're working on it."

He also told reporters that wife Kate Holmes' choreographer, Tyce Diorio, helped him with the ass-slapping, booty-bumping routine. He said Holmes loved the performance. "She was there when we were working on it," Cruise said.

Also in the house was...Suri! After the show, Cruise waited for Holmes and their little one outside. (Check out this exclusive pic of Suri on Twitter.) Papa Tom hung out with Cameron Diaz, who he introduced to Karate Kid star Jaden Smith. Diaz gave Cruise's son, Connor and big hug and kiss hello. Mr. Cruise also got a big hug from awards show producer Mark Burnett.

Perhaps Les Goodman will appear in the Hangover sequel. Cruise chatted for a few minutes with Todd Phillips, the director of the hit comedy.

Suri wasn't the only celebrity offspring I spotted. J. Lo had the twins in tow. Mama Lopez, wrapped in a white bathrobe, had Emme in her arms while Marc Anthony carried Max as they made their way from backstage to her trailer.

TV and toys set to relaunch 'Voltron'



The reintroduction of "Voltron: Defender of the Universe" will begin with an animated series on Nicktoons and a new toy line from Mattel rather than leap straight onto the bigscreen.

That's the plan from rights holders World Event Prods and Classic Media, which are attempting to relaunch the massive robot, popular in the 1980s, to a new generation.

It's the latest of several properties to scrap plans for an initial film in favor of relaunching the brand through TV and toys.

Warner Bros.' animation aims to produce an anime-influenced version of "ThunderCats" for Cartoon Network to revive the '80s property, which has had a feature treatment stuck in development.

Likewise billionaire Haim Saban bought back "The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" from Disney last month for about $100 million to reboot as TV shows on Nickelodeon and toys.

Starting next year, Nicktoons will air 26 half-hour episodes of "Voltron Force," about five space explorers who pilot robotic lions that combine to form Voltron, an invincible guardian sworn to defend the Universe.

Series will remain faithful to the old show, while introducing new recruits to fight alongside the original characters.

New episodes will be timed to the 25th anniverseries. It's the first "Voltron" TV project in 10 years, although an iPhone game came out in December.

[...]

Mattel will tie-in with the anniversary to launch toys based on the classic "Voltron" range, as well as action figures and playsets that revolve around an edgier, modernized robot. There is no date on when the toys will hit shelves.

[...]

WEP and Classic Media had been developing a live action feature for some time but scribes, including Justin Marks, have yet to lock down the right tone, producers said.

'Real Housewife' in Real Sex Tape Drama

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Another "celebrity" sex tape is about to hit the market -- and this time, the people distributing the footage claim the star is Danielle Staub from "Real Housewives of New Jersey."

Hustler Inc. tells us it is all set to distribute a 75 minute tape, featuring Jersey's most hated Housewife -- and mother of two -- in a naked romp with a mystery man.

A rep from Hustler tells us the tape was shot last September -- several months after 47-year old Staub first appeared on the Bravo reality show. The tape is set to be released on June 14.

A rep for Staub had no comment on the story.

Vampire Bill Sinks Teeth into 2 New Movie Roles



Vampire Bill is headed for the big screen.

Heat Vision reports that 'True Blood' star Stephen Moyer will be sinking his teeth into roles in two upcoming films: 'The Double,' a political thriller, and 'The Big Valley,' an adaptation of the 1960s television series of the same name.

Moyer will be playing a Russian spy in 'The Double,' which features Richard Gere as a CIA operative who teams up with an FBI agent (Topher Grace) to investigate the murder of a senator. The film is the directorial debut of scribe Michael Brandt ('Wanted').

'The Big Valley' follows the adventures of ranchers in 19th century California, with Jessica Lange playing the matriarch of the Barkley family, a role originally played by Barbara Stanwyck on the TV series. Moyer will play Jarrod Barkley, the family's attorney, a role originally played by Richard Long.

Moyer will also appear in the post-apocalyptic vampire movie, 'Priest,' opening next March. Meanwhile, the third season of 'True Blood' begins on HBO on Sunday, June 13.

Four people who need to get off their butts and do interesting work again

On Vacation
by Noah Forrest

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The interesting thing about Hollywood, for me, is that I find myself rooting for certain actors to succeed, hoping that when they finally become bankable stars that they will then get difficult films greenlit. It is to my perpetual dismay that when good actors become stars, they choose instead to attach themselves to films that don’t need them.

In other words, instead of using their newfound clout to star in passion projects, they cash in and pick the biggest blockbuster available to them. Oh sure, there are stars like Clooney, Pitt, and Damon who choose to attach themselves to either smart blockbusters or character-based work that allows them to grow. But unfortunately, this is not the career path that most choose and it’s disheartening.

Anyway, here are four powerful guys who I think need to come back from their “vacations” and get back to doing real work again.

Gemma Arterton pulls off secret wedding in Spain


In a plot that would have made secret agent 007 proud, former Bond girl Gemma Arterton managed to sneak away and get married in a hilltop retreat over the weekend.

Guests were not even told the location Arterton, 24, and Stefano Catelli, 37, planned to marry when they answered their invitations, but in the hills of southern Spain the elaborate planning paid off. Clutching a bouquet of white roses, the English beauty wore a cream gown and a veil in her auburn hair as she wed in Zuheros in Andalucia June 5, PEOPLE has confirmed.

Witnesses told the Daily Mail that the actress stroked her new husband's cheek "as they made their vows." And pictures in the British newspaper show the couple embracing after they said their 'I dos' and leaving the open-air ceremony in a vintage convertible.

Catelli, a sales manager for a fashion company, proposed last summer at a music festival in England.

Arterton's rep would not comment on the wedding, but last month, Arterton described her planned wedding dress to Instyle, saying, "There's this beautiful scene in [Franco] Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet where she runs out of the bedroom after a night with Romeo, and she's wrapped up in a sheet. She looks so gorgeous. My wedding gown is kind of like that."

The Poor World Is Now Stuck With The Shitfest of Shakira's Song

David Bisbal and K'naan Are Not Allowed To Perform "Waving Flag" at The World Cup
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Spanish Singer David Bisbal and Somali singer K'naan Warsame will not be able to perform their song "Waving Flag" at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The composer of the song, Rafael Vergara, has put a lawsuit on Coca Cola for the use of the song.

Vergara's lawyers said that the soda company did not pay the rights of the song to the writer and the use of the song in their commercials is illegal.
At this moment Coca Cola has not taken any action regarding this lawsuit nor have they accepted Vergara's offer to this problem can be resolved. "There is a time limit on the offer and if no response is given, the song will not be able to be used for the World Cup in South Africa" Vergara stated.

If there is no solution to this lawsuit, David Bisbal and K'naan will not be able to perform this song which, according to thousands of fans, should be the official son for the 2010 World Cup and now Shakira's song "Waka Waka"

Source
basically Coke get your shit together so we can hear that song cuz damn Shakira's song is a piece of shit.
actually I have a better solution, how about FIFA calls up Ricky Martin and asks him to perform "La Copa De La Vida/The Cup of Life" and make that the official World Cup song forever. I'm sure all the fans would agree with this proposal and would be very happy.

He's landed the role of a muddled Brit teacher with a secret love for musicals in the hit US TV show. A solo song is being lined up too.

But he might be entering a war zone, cast members locked in to long-term contracts are less than happy at missing out on the hit show's mega profits.

The Little Britain star has a hectic year ahead. He'll have to fit his Glee stint around filming new BBC series Come Fly With Me with pal David Walliams.

EXCLUSIVE HOME VIDEO: Jon Gosselin Stoned

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


In what may be Jon Gosselin’s biggest embarrassment yet, RadarOnline.com has exclusively obtained a never-before-seen home movie showing the former reality star and his then girlfriend Hailey Glassman stoned out of their minds.


The video was shot while the two were vacationing in St. Tropez, France, last summer with Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier.


RadarOnline.com spoke to a source with direct knowledge of what went down in France.

The insider revealed that in the video, Hailey and Jon had smoked spliffs, mixing marijuana and tobacco.


The insider, who confirmed that Jon was “also drunk” on champagne in the video, told RadarOnline.com that the father-of-eight smoked spliffs regularly.

“Jon and Hailey were confused about how people smoked weed in France because they mix it with tobacco. All they did [on their trip] was drink Crystal and smoke spliffs with the friends they were with,” the source told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Whenever someone was sparking it up, they were right there smoking it.”


In the video, Jon and Hailey take turns filming each other on the balcony of their hotel, making silly cracks about the French and their apparent lactose intolerance.

“We’re munching on Pringles here in beautiful St. Tropez, eating quality food because every time we eat, we either get swollen boobs or I (bleep) myself,” Jon says on tape.

He then proceeds to mock the French, telling Hailey, “all we do is sit out here on our beautiful deck, eat Pringles and complain about the French. Don’t ever go to a hair salon in France... Especially if you’re Jewish... doubly especially if you’re a New York Jew.”


When Hailey references her curly hair during a salon mishap in St. Tropez, Jon interrupts with: “It looked like big Jewish pubes.”

“Hailey and Jon were stoned out of their minds in that video,” the source revealed. “Jon would drink every night. He’d go out and Hailey would stay in and order room service. She hated France. She wasn’t used to all of the paparazzi and she wanted nothing to do with it.”

Jon was still married to Kate at this point and his romance with Hailey had recently exploded into scandalous headlines.


At one point on the tape, Jon sticks a cigarette up his nose, starts massaging his belly and tells Hailey, “This is how the French smoke. They smoke so much they put cigarettes in every orifice of their body.”

As RadarOnline.com reported at the time, Kate Gosselin was home in Pennsylvania taking care of their eight kids during his European jaunt with Hailey.

MTV reviews Alejandro



At this point in her career, Lady Gaga can do whatever she wants, whenever she wants. She is unbound, unbridled, and completely without fear ... and "Alejandro" is proof of that. It is a very glamorous, very art-y thing — and anyone expecting a video like her last one should give up that hope right now.

Because, having already run roughshod through the pulpy pop culture of yesteryear with Beyoncé in her "Telephone" video, Gaga decides to play it comparatively straight with "Alejandro," a video that's long on style but short on storyline and "Caged Heat" references. Which is another way of saying that it's not exactly a fun video. And while it's not fair to compare the two clips — since they have nothing in common outside of being released consecutively — "Alejandro" is about as far from "Telephone" as she could get.

John Stamos To Join 'Glee'

When you’re watching tonight’s season finale of Glee, and Emma mentions that she’s been dating her dentist, go ahead and draw yourself a mental picture of… John Stamos!

Yup, I hear the Fox hit and the actor formerly known as Uncle Jesse are nearing a deal for him to recur next season as Will’s competition for the cutest neurotic at McKinley High. And if the agreement gets made, bet on a sing-off between her two suitors: Though Stamos is best known for his TV roles, he’s also got street cred on Broadway, having appeared in such musicals as Bye Bye Birdie.

Lindsay Lohan's SCRAM bracelet set off


Lindsay Lohan has some explaining to do.

Her court-ordered alcohol-monitoring bracelet, called a SCRAM device, was triggered Sunday evening during an MTV Music Awards afterparty, according to a source close to the case.

It remains unclear whether alcohol was detected in her system or if the device was tampered with. Either one would alert authorities.

Lohan, 23, could face jail time if the judge in her case rules that the actress violated the conditions of her bail – which include abstaining from alcohol and submitting to random drug testing. Judge Marsha Revel is expected to receive the SCRAM report soon, the source says, and could order Lohan in for an immediate bail revocation hearing.

Lohan's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, wasn't immediately available for comment.

The SCRAM checks for traces of alcohol in the wearer's perspiration. The device must be worn at all times.

Lohan was fitted for the device on her left ankle last month after she pulled a no-show at a mandatory progress review hearing and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

She also faces a probation violation hearing on July 6.

Actor Pulls Out Of NY Puerto Rican Day Parade



An actor with a history of domestic violence has dropped out of New York's annual Puerto Rican Day parade after critics called for a boycott and at least one invited guest dropped out in protest, organizers said Tuesday.

Osvaldo Rios, known for his work in telenovelas or Spanish-language soap operas, had decided not to participate, Carlos Velasquez of parade producer Galos Corp. said Tuesday.

The actor, who had been chosen as the event's "padrino international," or international godfather, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Rios, 49, was convicted on a domestic violence charge in 2003, stemming from a 1996 assault. Officials said he served about three months in prison in Puerto Rico in 2004 for the conviction.

A group of New York City councilwomen had condemned the choice and said they would boycott the parade unless Rios' designation was withdrawn.

"Domestic violence is a destructive cycle. Lives are destroyed and futures are damaged by this horrendous crime. We simply cannot remain silent on this issue," said the statement from Melissa Mark-Viverito, Annabel Palma, Rosie Mendez, Julissa Ferreras, Maria del Carmen Arroyo and Diana Reyna and state Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo shortly after the pick was announced.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, of Illinois, named the states marshal for the parade, had sent a letter to the organizers on Friday, declining the invitation to be part of the parade.

"I do not believe that honoring an individual who has committed such a serious crime is in keeping with the spirit of our parade or the principles of our community," he said. "I believe we must send a message of zero tolerance for violence against women."

Asked about his plans in the wake of Rios stepping down, Gutierrez spokesman Douglas Rivlin said the congressman had made other plans since declining the invitation, and would not be able to attend the parade because he will be in Puerto Rico.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn called the decision "the right move."

,” the new digital single from GRAMMY®-nominated singer-songwriter Kelis’ upcoming album, Flesh Tone, is out today.

TBS Starts an Emmy Campaign for Conan



This may be the first time a network has taken out Emmy ads in support of another network's former show.

TBS, in yet another gesture of goodwill toward its new marquee star Conan O'Brien, has put together two different "For Your Consideration" ads in support of "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien," which aired on NBC from June 1, 2009 to January 22, 2010.

“Conan’s great work in 2009 and 2010 deserves Emmy consideration. We’re very excited to have him join TBS later this year," said Turner Ent. Networks prexy Steve Koonin.

The TBS ads actually don't ever mention "The Tonight Show," but just focus on O'Brien.

NBC isn't taking out Emmy ads for O'Brien, but instead is promoting "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." (It isn't taking ads out for "The Jay Leno Show" either.) The situation could lead to the unusual case of two "Tonight Shows" being nominated -- or O'Brien's defunct "Tonight Show" being nommed and Leno's current "Tonight Show" not getting a nom.

Steven Klein explains the video that no one seems to understand



Lady Gaga's latest cinematic epic has finally arrived: Months after the mini-Tarantino saga "Telephone", the nearly nine-minute-long new video for Gaga's Fame Monster smash "Alejandro" debuted today on Vevo. Directed by Steven Klein and choreographed by Laurieann Gibson, the video features all the cutting edge fashion, creative dancing and tidal waves of eye-popping "did you just see that?" moments fans have come to expect from Gaga. In the clip, she transforms herself into a latex nun, a female Bono, a thick-goggled Siddhartha and the Material Girl — with a machine gun bra replacing Madonna's now seemingly demure conical model.

"She likes epics. It fits her personality. We combined dance, narrative and attributes of surrealism," Klein, a fashion photographer who in the past has worked closely with Madonna, tells Rolling Stone. "The process was to express Lady Gaga's desire to reveal her heart and bear her soul."

Surrounded alternately by half-naked, monk-haired male dancers in high heels and uniformed soldiers, "Alejandro" avoids one defining plot, opting instead to wow viewers with its intense and at times provocative political and religious imagery. Like "Bad Romance" before it, the ending of "Alejandro" shows Gaga laying in bed before it culminates in Two Lane Blacktop fashion — Gaga's blank stare morphs into a specter as the film burns and disintegrates in the projector. Even though the clip's running time ballooned beyond the length of standard videos, Gaga and Klein struggled to squeeze all their ideas into the final cut. "On a music video there is never enough time," says Klein, who, besides directing tour videos for Madonna, hadn't tackled an MTV-style project. "We had planned so much and achieved much of that, but of course some of it we were not able due to time constraints."

While "Alejandro" seems both politically and religiously charged, from Gaga's assault weapon bra to her ingestion of rosary beads, Klein insists "the politics came out of the story, but was not the official intention." Madonna's visual oeuvre seems like the obvious reference point for "Alejandro," with its not-so-subtle hints of "Like a Prayer" and "Vogue," but Klein admits that painters, more than any musicians or film directors, influenced the design and spirit of the video.

Finally Some Good World Cup News

Mexico welcome Marquez return
Experienced centre-half back in training
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Rafael Marquez has handed Mexico a timely boost ahead of their World Cup opener against South Africa.

The Mexicans are set to face the hosts in the tournament curtain raiser on Friday and are hoping to get off to a winning start.

They were, however, fearful that they would be forced to enter the contest without the services of their most experienced defender.

Marquez's involvement had been cast into doubt once he picked up a leg injury during a warm-up date with Italy last week.


It was widely suggested that the problem would keep the Barcelona man out of at least one game, if not more.

However, the 31-year-old centre-half returned to training on Tuesday and is expected to come into contention on Friday.

Mexico have also welcomed the news that Guillermo Franco is set to be fit to make the South Africa clash.

The former West Ham and Villarreal striker had been struggling with a muscle complaint, but came through training on Tuesday unscathed.

Baby Gaga's mom defends Telephone parody



On this morning’s Early Show, Heidi Ladrow, mother of the “Baby Gaga” in a recent viral video spoof of Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” (which has since been made private on YouTube, but you can see clips over at CBS.com) sat down with the video’s director and a psychotherapist. That seemed like a good start! Logic and proportion fell sloppy dead from there. Here are a few choice quotes from the mother of a Baby in Chains, along with the half-baked retorts I would lay on her if I happened to be lounging in the far corner of that stylish sofa. I’m sure The Early Show would have loved to have me. Next time.

“[My daughter] has known [the director, Jake Wilson] since she was six months old, so she’s very comfortable with him.” Oh, cool. Did she tell you that? Do they have a lot in common? Maybe they could date. Well. Maybe she could turn into one of his favorite shopping partners! You’ve seen ‘Clueless’ right? “The reason she looked uncomfortable is because she’d just woken up from a two-hour nap. She’s animated, you know? We wanted her to look kind of upset in certain points. I think she’s a very well-adjusted child. At 3, she’s very self-actualized.” Have you considered asking your toddler for advice on achieving a more efficient perception of reality?

“This went gangbusters quite quickly.” [At this point I think I'd just shoot her with a pink plastic water gun.] “It’s beyond YouTube.” Your mom’s beyond YouTube. “It’s for fun, it’s a spoof on Lady Gaga. It has to be outrageous because Lady Gaga’s videos are outrageous.” And there HAS to be a spoof on Lady Gaga starring a baby???!??? Then I’d like my colleague Jennifer Armstrong, who introduced you to Baby Gaga last week, to pop up on the other end of the sofa and deliver her assessment of the mere concept of a baby imitating Lady Gaga: “It’s actually borderline creepy, mainly because Gaga is.”

Katy Perry to host Teen Choice Awards



Fox announced today that pop princess-turned-pin-up model-turned-”California Gurl” Katy Perry will host this year’s Teen Choice Awards Aug. 9. Apart from the fact that the gig is probably motivated at least in part (if not mostly) by her album release a few weeks later, I’m actually pretty excited for the prospect of the bubbly Perry to take on the job.

Last year, the mild-mannered Jonas Brothers graced the stage as MCs — and the year before that, the most obvious choice of all, Miley Cyrus — but I think Perry’s resume better fits the bill. With one of the hottest songs of the summer and a commitment to, um, out-there fashion, Perry is guaranteed to bring the colorful, bubblegum brand of entertainment that’s so characteristic of the Teen Choice Awards.

What do you think about Perry as host?

Let the Christina Aguilera Backlash Commence (LOL)

LOL at the title. Author obviously does not know of ONTD's existence. Also, TL;DR truck coming through but bolded.



It seems she can't do much of anything right; early reviews for 'Bionic' have been mostly tepid, her first single tanked and she can't even get dressed without being accused of ripping off other artists -- Lady Gaga and Madonna, in particular.

FUNNY GIRL REVIVING

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The new York Times reports today that Broadway producer Bob Boyett is endeavoring to revive FUNNY GIRL on Broadway with famed director Bartlet Sher (South Pacific, Awake and Sing, Light in the Piaza) at the helm. The pair are currently planning a six week out-of-town tryout in late 2011 in preparation for a swift Broadway transfer later that season, according to the report. This would be the first revival of the show on Broadway. Boyett currently secures the rights.

No additional details are in place yet for the project. Say Boyett in the Times: " I don't have any other details, or anything on locations...Nothing is really pulled together except Bart Sher."

As for the search for that special actress to reprise the role Barbra Streisand made famous in the 1964 original production, Boyett and Sher are open to all options. Says Boyett: "There have been a few Hollywood types who have expressed interest...but we're also open to going with an unknown actress." He declined to name specific names who have made the first long list of options. When asked about GLEE star Lea Michele, Boyett was non-commital but had only complimentary things to say of the songbird.

To read the full report in the New York Times, click here.

FUNNY GIRL has a book by Isobel Lennart, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Bob Merrill. The semi-biographical plot is based on the life and career of Broadway, film star and comedienne Fanny Brice and her stormy relationship with entrepreneur and gambler Nicky Arnstein.

The musical was produced by Ray Stark, who was Brice's son-in-law via his marriage to her daughter Frances, and starred Barbra Streisand. The production was nominated for eight Tony Awards but, facing tough competition from Hello, Dolly!, it failed to win in any categories.

Boyett and Sher have previously collaborated on South Pacific.

Art imitates life for Glee star Lea Michele.

A source tells Us Weekly the actress (who plays uptight show standout Rachel Berry), 23, is a diva on the set of the Fox show, which airs its season finale Tuesday night.

"Lea acts like she's better than the rest of the cast," says the insider. "But the thing is, she legitimately is."

Another set source says, "She's sweet, but she has her moments."

Apt to boss around makeup artists and other crew members, "She has very clear ideas about what she wants to do and how she wants to look. I think she's just Type-A, like her character."

A second pal points out that Lea has "always wanted to be a star," and, in a classic Hollywood move, "she has become super-strict about her diet. She is a vegan now and says she hasn't eaten cheese in a year!"'

Michele -- who admitted on The Oprah Winfrey Show she's more like her character than any of her co-stars -- even "sings along to her own songs on the radio."

At a May 24 cast dinner at Chicago's Sunda, she was the only star who refused to sign autographs for fans. After it was reported she snapped at photographer Patrick McMullan for asking her name at the Time 100 party, she Twittered that it was a "silly joke."

Still, the cast has bonded working 14-hour days.

"We've become so close, Dianna Agron, 24, who plays pregnant cheerleader Quinn Fabray, tells Us. "We're like a family."

10 Stars Who Love Fur

Kanye is known for his tirades, which include a long rant after he was criticized for wearing fur by PETA. In one of his famous all-caps blogs, he wrote: "I'm briefly saddened by negative comments, but I have to remember those people are scared, incapable or just plain idiots. We are the f---ing rock stars baby. No cocaine, just life my n---as!" And it turns out Kanye's girlfriend Amber Rose is a fan of fur too -- what a perfect match!

emily blunt overcame her stutter, was a mute before doing so

Image and video hosting by TinyPic 

Emily Blunt, the British actress, turned mute at the age of 12 because she was so anguished at having a stutter, she has disclosed.
Blunt developed the speech impediment at the age of 10 and found it progressively harder to cope.
"I remember that when it first started to kick in I thought it was a habit, but when it really starts to ingrain itself upon you it becomes an anguished situation to live your life in, especially when you're a kid, when you're only trying to appear very cool. I was definitely not cool," said Blunt, who appeared in The Devil Wears Prada and won a Golden Globe nomination for her starring role in The Young Victoria.
Aged 12, she stopped speaking altogether. "[I thought] 'Why am I like this? Why have I got this stupid voice problem? Everyone else can talk, what's my problem?' My friends started to accept my stutter as just who I was but I didn't like being accepted in that way.

"It felt like a mental mountain that I found impossible to overcome."

Blunt's mother took her to see specialists but they failed to help. The stutter disappeared when a teacher suggested Blunt spoke in a Northern accent for a school play. "I wouldn't say that I ceased to stutter after that, that it was some huge revelation. But for the first time in five years I was able to speak fluently," she told The Daily Beast website.

The actress, now 27, was speaking before a benefit event in aid of the American Institute for Stuttering.

CONTROVERSY: Oprah An Unappreciated Prophet, Says Stedman Graham

She’s more than just a great talk show host or someone who recommends what books you should read.

Oprah Winfrey is an unappreciated prophet, according to her long-time boyfriend Stedman Graham!

In remarks that are sure to stir controversy, Stedman said that Orpah is unappreciated in Chicago. “I don’t think they understand the value of who she is as a human being and what she’s done,” he said in a TV interview with the Chicago Fox affiliate WFLD.

Stedman was responding to a question about Oprah leaving town and he surprised the TV anchors with his answer that Oprah was unappreciated. Then the level of controversy skyrocketed when he said: “Because a prophet has no honor in his own town.”

Naomi Watts has her hands full with her mischievous toddler sons



With two toddlers to take care of, actress Naomi Watts is one busy woman. So as mother to Alexander 'Sacha' Pete, who turns three next month, and Samuel Kai, 18 months, the Hollywood beauty has wisely opted for a twin pushchair to transport her boys around town.

As the 41-year-old enjoyed an afternoon stroll around Manhattan, she kept a close eye on her boys to make sure the siblings weren't driving each other crazy as they sat side by side.

With just 17 months between the boys, they could have easily been mistaken for twins with their light blonde hair. However, older son Sacha looks more like his actor father Liev Schreiber, while his brother Samuel takes after his mother.

As they were pushed through the busy streets of New York, the brothers split their time between playing with each other and annoying each other. At one point, Watts stopped to reassure Sacha as his little brother poked his hand in his mouth.

Christina Aguilera Throws Gum At Crowd (??), Looks Unhappy



This morning, on the Today Show, Christina Aguilera performed "You Lost Me". But before she sang, she settled into her stool, looking less than pleased before she threw her gum at or past the crowd that came to watch her sing.

Christina VH1 Special

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Christina Aguilera has been getting it from all sides lately. What with the comparisons to Lady Gaga and suddenly canceling her summer tour so she could have more time to rehearse.

So what better time for a VH1 special?

Xtina will get the "Behind the Music" treatment on Sunday, June 6 and let's just say her formative years weren't much to write home about either.

Christina talks about the abuse her mother Shelly suffered at the hands of her father that then started spilling over to herself.

"I decided to step in between and said 'don't hurt my mommy.' He then threw me across the room because I had stood up for my mom," she shares. "He was getting more physical with me, the older I got, and my mom said enough was enough."

Things weren't much better at school where classmates jealous of her early fame and success would make threats and slash her tires of she won a competition.

All of this, plus a controlling record label, led to rebellion -- "I wanted to make a statement, and a bold one, and what better way to do it than to wear a**-less chaps when you're 21 years old?" -- and bouts of depression that she credits husband Jordan Bratman with pulling her out of.

Good thing she could sing.

"I remember the first time I met Christina she was smaller than the rest of us and then she opened her mouth and sounded bigger than all of us put together," says former fellow "Mickey Mouse Club" member Justin Timberlake.

"Behind the Music: Christina Aguilera" premieres Sunday, June 13 at 9 p.m. ET on VH1.

Reese with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe at daughter's pony club show

Reese Witherspoon and former husband Ryan Phillippe proved they are now on friendly terms as they reunited for their daughter's equestrian event yesterday.

The divorced pair, who were joined by son Deacon, 6, watched on with pride as Ava, 10, trotted around the course in Pacific Palisades, California.

Ryan, 36, who is single following his split from Abbie Cornish in February, recently spoke about his relationship with his ex-wife.

'Things are great,' he said during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this month.

'It is so important as divorced parents to keep that connection. It makes the kids feel better that the parents are interacting and with each other.

'We go to all the school events together, and we're there for each other. Also, in our line of work, you have to be flexible because from one week to the next. You don't know where you're going to have to be for a promotional tour or on location.

'We've done a really good job with that, and our kids are happy and healthy and doing awesome.'

Bench Warrant for Lindsay Lohan's Arrest TAKE #2

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lindsay Lohan is a wanted woman -- Judge Marsha Revel has just issued a bench warrant for her arrest, and it's all about the SCRAM.

Bail has been forfeited for the previous hearing. The new bail has been set at $200,000.

There are 5 violations, according to the judge.

Lindsay's SCRAM bracelet generated a report to SCRAM officials sometime after the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night.

Sources say the SCRAM data shows evidence of alcohol

OF COURSE

We're going to break it down for you. Lindsay was on probation when she failed to appear in court last month. At that point, Judge Revel revoked her probation and set bail at $100,000. In return for bail, Lindsay promised to appear for a hearing on the probation violation -- set for July 6. Because of the SCRAM incident, the $100,000 bail has now been forfeited. Instead of throwing Lindsay in jail pending the July hearing, the judge is allowing her to post new bail -- set at $200,000, so she can remain free. .

source 

BAIL POSTED 

It only took minutes, but TMZ has learned the bail bondsman who posted Lindsay's bail last month is pulling up to the Beverly Hills courthouse right now -- to do it again. TMZ has learned bondsman David Perez is pulling up to the courthouse right now to post the $200,000 bail. Once posted, the judge will almost certainly recall the bench warrant for Lindsay's arrest. Nonetheless ... Lindsay has forfeited the $100,000 bail previously posted.

BENCH WARRANT RECALLED

The bench warrant for Lindsay Lohan's arrest has been recalled ... a little more than an hour after it was issued, thanks to the fast work of bail bondsman David Perez. Perez's peeps just posted $20,000 (the standard 10% of bail) in Judge Marsha Revel's court. The judge recalled the warrant, which means she is able to remain free, though she has a tough road ahead. If Lindsay violates the terms of the SCRAM program again, it's likely the judge will throw her in jail pending the July 6 hearing on the alleged probation violation for DUI. In short, one more false move ... and she's probably going to the slammer.

Guide to Madonna References in Alejandro

We probably don’t have to tell you that Lady Gaga’s long-awaited “Alejandro” video premiered today at noon. The music media has already puzzled over the themes: Holocaust? (Yes, definitely.) Vampire? (Less substantiated, but the imagery certainly lends itself to that interpretation.) Holy war? (Well, all that Catholic imagery must mean something…) Haters are hating. Overanalyzers are overanalyzing. Us? We’re just geeking out over the number of Madonna references Gaga managed to pack into the video. Obviously, there’s the sex, the black-and-white cinematography (which ’90s Madge was so fond of), the feminized male dancers. But there’s a lot to take apart on a shot-by-shot level, too. Is it Lady Gaga “straight up MURDERING Madonna,” as Videogum suggests? We’re not sure. All we know is she’s definitely attempting to up the ante. Watch “Alejandro” and follow along as we enumerate the Madonna references after the jump.

Godga explains how she's not Fernando's babe



Eight minutes and forty-three seconds. That’s the amount of time you’ll have to devote to sitting through Lady Gaga’s music video for “Alejandro”. Oddly, it will be over before you even know it, and you’ll be left wanting to hit the replay button (whether you’re enjoying it all over again or merely trying to figure out exactly what the fuck just happened).

As you may know, Gaga previously explained the video as such: ”It’s about the purity of my friendships with my gay friends, and how I’ve been unable to find that with a straight man in my life. It’s a celebration and an admiration of gay love—it confesses my envy of the courage and bravery they require to be together. In the video I’m pining for the love of my gay friends—but they just don’t want me to be with them.”

Tuc Watkins becomes a series regular on Desperate Housewives



This fall, after three years of occasional appearances on Wisteria Lane, Tuc Watkins is joining “Desperate Housewives” as a series regular.

The actor, who plays one half of the street’s gay couple – Bob (Tuc) and Lee (Kevin Rahm), will head to Los Angeles in mid-July to join the girls – Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria Parker, Felicity Huffman and Marcia Cross – as a full-time cast member. Before that happens though, Tuc will finish up a run in “White’s Lies,” an off-Broadway play pairing him opposite Tony-award winning actress Betty Buckley.

“They made me a series regular on ‘Desperate Housewives’ next year, so that’s great and the timing works out perfectly,” he recently told AccessHollywood.com. “I’m doing the play for eight weeks and then when ‘Desperate Housewives’ stars up again in mid-July, I go back to do that on a hopefully more [regular basis].”

In “White’s Lies,” which is currently running at the New World Stages in New York City, Tuc gets to flex his muscles – both acting and pectoral – as Joe White, a roguish divorce lawyer and lady-killer whose mother’s (Buckley) dying wish is to see her son produce a grandchild.

“I love playing characters that – on paper – are completely unlikable and you have to figure out, ‘How do you translate this character to an audience and make them still root for the guy?’” Tuc said of the role.

Mayor of London comments on Wizarding World of HP- comes off as a huge douche

With less than two week to go before the Grand Opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park at Univesal Orlando, the Mayor of London is wondering why the park wasn't built in London - a little closer to where the books were originally set.  He wrote a lengthy piece in The Telegraph explaining his reasoning:

Because the fact is that Harry Potter is not American. He is British. Where is Diagon Alley, where they buy wands and stuff? It is in London, and if you want to get into the Ministry of Magic you disappear down a London telephone box. The train for Hogwarts goes from King's Cross, not Grand Central Station, and what is Harry Potter all about? It is about the ritual and intrigue and dorm-feast excitement of a British boarding school of a kind that you just don't find in America. Hogwarts is a place where children occasionally get cross with each other – not "mad" – and where the situation is usually saved by a good old British sense of HUMOUR. WITH A U. RIGHT? NOT HUMOR. GOTTIT?

I know that Thierry and everyone at Warner Bros and Universal will do a magnificent job of making it look and feel authentic and faithful to the stories. But I know somewhere that's even better than Orlando at looking like London – and that is London. I want to know why this Kingdom of Potter is not being built in the UK, and I won't be fobbed off with any nonsense about the weather. They built Eurodisney in the Valley of the Marne, where it is at least as cold and drizzly as it is in London – and it has been a triumphant success.


Hey Boris - we certainly wouldn't complain about a SECOND Harry Potter theme park in London as well!

By the way... we don't think Boris was too serious about the 'more likely to be shot in Orlando' comment.  We think he was joking a bit.

I'm all for the park being in  London and everything but he definitely could have done without the British elitism.  That's just ridiculous.

Katherine Heigl Submits Self for Emmy, Costar Asks: "For What?"



After the two-hour Grey's Anatomy finale a few weeks ago, we said Emmys should be given to everyone in the cast for that episode. But funny, so far we've only heard of Katherine Heigl submitting her name in the Emmy race for Best Supporting Actress.

You're probably wondering what she submitted her name for, considering she rarely appeared in Grey's this season. And when we ran into Eric Dane over the weekend he was asking the same thing:

Reporters asked Eric what he thought of Katherine putting her name in for Best Supporting Actress. His response: "For what?"

"Um, for Grey's Anatomy," we gently reminded him on the carpet at the 9th Annual Chrysalis Ball, where he was there with his equally good lookin' wife Rebecca Gayheart.

"Oh," Dane said catching himself. "It's great! Fantastic! I love it! Why?"

Call us crazy, but after all the drama and handful of episodes Heigl actually lent her movie star acting chops to, we think TV's golden statue could go to someone a bit more deserving, like McSteamy.

"I don't even know if I've ever submitted myself for an Emmy," Dane tells E! "I really honestly never thought about myself as getting nominated, or have thought about an Emmy at all to be honest with you. I've never given it much thought. But hey, it would be wonderful."

Yeah, yeah, no need to be all politically correct with us mister. We've heard the devilish tales from the Grey's set, and it wasn't comin' from your camp!

As for whether the entire cast will be back next season?

"You know I can honestly say, like I say every year, I really don't know," Dane 'fessed to us. "I really have no idea."

Inspired by Iceland: A push for summer travel

Travel to Iceland this summer

Since the initial eruption in Eyjafjallajökull, the world has become an awestricken audience to Iceland’s state of well-being.  While ash loomed over Western Europe and passengers remained stranded across the globe, all eyes looked toward Reykjavik.
Fortunately, only a small percentage of the country has been affected by the ash, but unsurprisingly, Iceland’s visitor numbers have dropped drastically since the event.

Fear without facts has kept visitors at bay, but the reality is that Iceland’s infrastructure is still safely intact. Flights to Iceland are running smoothly, and are expected to stay that way for the foreseeable future.

Furthermore, prices for flights, hotels and car hire are easily on par with other European countries, so visitors won’t face inflated prices due to a low tourism rate. 

Katrín Júlíusdóttir, Minister of Industry of Iceland, beckons travelers and says, “We believe Iceland is a country that can inspire everyone who comes here.  The stunning geography and wonderful scenery, the warmth and kindness of the people, the unique culture and accessibility of Iceland all go towards making our country a great place to visit – we want the world to know that.”

In order to get the word out that Iceland is indeed welcoming travelers with open arms, the Icelandic government created an innovative “Inspired by Iceland” campaign to help kick-start summer tourism.

Destiny's Child will NOT reunite

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams’ last album together was called Destiny Fulfilled for a reason: Destiny’s Child is never making another album or performing together again. If you don’t believe me, trust Mathew Knowles, proud father of pop diva Beyoncé and former manager of the most successful girl group ever. Refuting reports from the rumor mill, Knowles says the trio is not getting back together, now or ever.

“Contrary to rumors online of a Destiny’s Child reunion, there are no plans for the group to reunite for a performance or album,” Knowles states in a press release issued today. “The rumors are false. Destiny’s Child made an unprecedented impact in contemporary music, becoming one of the best-selling groups of all time. Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams have each moved on to successful solo careers. The members remain close, but will not reunite as a group.”

UPPER EAST SIDE — Lady Gaga returned to her Upper East Side roots Thursday afternoon to attend her sister's graduation from the Convent of the Sacred Heart, dressed in God knows what.

Wearing a see-through (yes, see-through) lacy pantsuit, broad black hat and black veil, the pop mega star was spotted outside the prestigious all-girls Catholic school she also attended.

She was checking her "Videophone." No word on whether Beyoncé was on the line.

A handful of "Paparazzi" turned up for the ritzy graduation at East 91st Street and Fifth Avenue to snap some photos as security guards whisked Gaga into a waiting black SUV.

To his admirers Mark Ronson is the producer with the golden Rolodex, thought of as the mentor who shaped the sound of multi-platinum selling artists like Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen, and who is now going back to his childhood to work with 1980s superstars Duran Duran.

His new album, Record Collection, released under the name Mark Ronson & The Business Intl, will feature Duran Duran's Nick Rhodes and a track with Boy George, as well as hip-hop star Wiley.

However, despite his pedigree and success with two of the UK's biggest female stars, Ronson has confessed that he did not always wear the trousers in the relationships with Allen and Winehouse.

Thom Yorke: "Industry dying"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Thom Yorke has revealed that he thinks it's "only a matter of months" till the collapse of the mainstream music business.

In an interview for a new high school textbook called The Rax Active Citizen Toolkit, the Radiohead man claims that the music industry is dying, reports ThisIsLondon.co.uk.

"[It'll be] only a matter of time," Yorke says. "Months rather than years before the music business establishment completely folds."

Advising aspiring musicians not to tie themselves to such a "sinking ship", Yorke adds that despite the fall of the music business, that it will be "no great loss to the world".

The textbook, which is due out on July 1 and is written by Jamie Kelsey, also features interviews with Ms Dynamite and broadcaster Jon Snow, and is aimed at helping 15 and 16 year olds become more politically literate.

Get Ready to See More of This Hot Bitch Because He's Now a Regular



Jesse Williams, aka Dr. Jackson Avery, will scrub in as a full-time Seattle Grace doctor on Grey’s Anatomy next season.

EW’s Michael Ausiello also reports that fellow rookie Sarah Drew, aka Dr. April Kepner, might be promoted to a series regular as well.

“April and Jackson have really been folded into the group,” series creator Shonda Rimes has said. “It’ll depend on what the studio and the network decide to do with those actors, but I fully advocate to have them [stick around].”

BREAKING NEWS: Leopard vomits all over Will Smith's daughter



Willow Smith played dress-up at the "The Karate Kid" premiere: The 9-year-old actress looked twice her age as she accompanied her family down the red carpet.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's daughter went head-to-toe leopard print in an ensemble that channeled the edgy style of pop superstar Rihanna. She finished off the outfit with knee-high boots, big sunglasses, a chain necklace and a soaring pompadour.

Willow and her parents attended the premiere to support 11-year-old Jaden Smith, who stars in the kid-friendly martial arts film. According to costar Jackie Chan, Jaden shares some things with onscreen character. "Jaden's a good kid, [but] he's always bullied by his sister," Chan confessed to People about the pompadoured petite.

This is not the first time little Willow has mimicked Rihanna's bold style. Last December, she appeared at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert with a side-swept and partially shaved 'do that mirrored the "Disturbia" singer's coif almost exactly.

Willow isn't the only Hollywood youngster garnering attention with her aged-up looks -- Madonna's daughter Lourdes graced the cover of Europe's Quality Magazine this month. Although she looks beautiful and sophisticated, there's speculation as to whether the 13-year-old knowingly posed for the photo.
Willow, on the other hand, seems to thoroughly own her red carpet makeover -- she even brought out a second look for the party after the premiere.

Clearly she is a new Hollywood talent, just like her brother. Can't wait til she stars in a remake of Just One of the Guys.

Can PostSecret and Facebook Save a Life?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A disturbing post on PostSecret yesterday revealed an illegal immigrant pledging to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge – but 20,000 online voices have responded with hope.

PostSecret, a blog that weekly displays anonymously mailed-in secrets on postcards from across the country, has long been known for revealing suicidal secrets, and has set up a phone hotline in response since the blog began in 2004. Yesterday, a postcard read, “I have lived in San Francisco since I was young … I am illegal … I am not wanted here. I don’t belong anywhere. This summer I plan to jump off the Golden Gate.”

Within 24 hours, nearly 20,000 people had signed up for a Facebook group titled “please don’t jump,” which was later linked beneath the secret on the Post Secret blog, linking in thousands of supportive comments.
On the group’s page, sympathetic users posted comments ranging from simply “I want you here” to “If I knew when you’d be at the bridge, I’d drive all the way from Ohio to meet you there, and hold you until you changed your mind.”

While there’s unfortunately no way to know if the card’s writer has seen the overwhelming number of responses on Facebook, one can only hope the community of writers has helped changed at least one person’s mind — perhaps even beyond the person who wrote the card.

'True Blood's' Natasha Alam sinks her teeth into Playboy





Russian-American model/actress Natasha Alam is joining the cast of "True Blood" for the third season as Yvetta, a new dancer at vampire club Fangtasia and love interest for the vamp owner Eric (Alexander Skarsgard).

And even though she's the July covergirl for Playboy (with an 8-page pictorial inside), Natasha claims that the frequent nudity on the HBO series gave her pause.

"I'd never done nudity. I had to overcome a few things in my head to do it," the former "Bold and the Beautiful" actress tells the magazine.
"[Then] here comes Alexander Skarsgard. He drops his robe, and he's not wearing a sock -- nothing. He's just totally out there, walking around as if nothing's going on. I was like, 'If he can do it, I can do it.'"

She also expresses an appreciation for Eric's right-hand (wo)man, Pam (Kristin Bauer).

Time for a chat with Max Weinberg y'all

Keeping the beat for The Boss — and beyond



If you’ve watched American TV in the past 35 years, you know Max Weinberg.

Maybe you are one of the 105 million viewers that saw him perform with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band in 2009 at the most highly rated Super Bowl in history. Or maybe you saw the drummer lead the Max Weinberg 7, Conan O’Brien’s house band during the host’s lengthy late-night run on NBC.

You might not have seen or heard Weinberg, however, if he had decided to stay in school 36 years ago.

Then a young but experienced drummer from Newark, N.J., Weinberg was a college student and making good money in the pit orchestra of “Godspell” who took a risk when he tried out for Springsteen’s band. He got the job in time to record 1975’s “Born To Run” with The Boss.

“I dropped out of college in 1974 to join Bruce and The E Street Band with 21 credits to go,” Weinberg remembered fondly in a phone interview last week.

Judge calls emergency hearing after Lindsay Lohan's monitoring bracelet alarm goes off

Actress Lindsay Lohan, left, with attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, during hearing in Beverly Hills.

A judge has ordered L.A. prosecutors and Lindsay Lohan’s attorney into court in Beverly Hills Tuesday afternoon amid reports that the court-ordered alcohol-monitoring bracelet alarm went off Sunday evening.

The alarm sounded the night Lohan attended MTV's Movie Awards.

The hearing is scheduled for 3 p.m.

A source told The Times it's unclear why the alarm went off. The device alerts a monitoring company if it is tampered with or the person wearing consumes alcohol. The monitoring company reports to the Los Angeles County Probation Department and the Superior Court judge in Beverly Hills who is handling Lohan's case.

Better Off Ted: ABC to (maybe) Air Final Two Episodes



A couple weeks ago, ABC officially cancelled the beloved but low-rated sitcom Better Off Ted. Featuring the talents of Jay Harrington, Portia de Rossi, and Andrea Anders, the sitcom received low ratings from the start so the cancellation really wasn’t a surprise.

The network stopped running Better Off Ted in January, leaving two unaired episodes on the shelf. Those installments might just see the light of day next week.

ABC is airing the NBA Finals and the seventh game is scheduled for June 17th. If the winner of the Finals is determined before then and that game isn’t needed, ABC has slotted four repeats of Cougar Town and the final episodes of Better Off Ted — “Swag the Dog” and “It’s My Party and I’ll Lie If I Want To.”

According to Hitfix, the seventh game has only been needed 20% of the time so there’s a good chance that the last episodes of Better Off Ted will air.

If they don’t end up running on the 17th, the network has no immediate plans to reschedule them. There’s a good chance that they’ll pop up sometime during the summer but just not anytime in the next couple weeks.

What do you think? Are you hoping that the seventh game of the NBA Finals isn’t needed? Will you tune in to see the last episodes of Better Off Ted?

Sad, I hate you ABC.
