Is reality TV helping to promote bullying?

BULLYING: IT'S not just for kids anymore.

Maybe it never was. But as a rash of teen suicides linked to bullying reignites a national conversation about how our children are treating one another in school, online - and even in the presumed privacy of their own rooms - I can't help noticing how much "reality" television relies on supposedly adult mean girls (and, yes, mean boys) to bring the drama.

Gavin Rossdale interview with Details

He talks his first date with Gwen, the paparazzi, Daisy Lowe, having a gay relationship as a teen and more.

Gavin Rossdale, Uncensored
Thought the Bush era was over? You weren't alone. But after eight years and two kids, the 45-year-old frontman is getting the band back together.

Details: While you were waiting for Bush's first album to be released in 1994, you worked a string of crappy jobs.
Gavin Rossdale: After we'd finished Sixteen Stone, Hollywood Records told us it had no singles, and no album tracks either. It was just a mess of sound. They dropped Bush before the album even came out. So I did painting jobs in London: I had to paint 12 identical dentists' offices with this nasty peach color. It was total Kafka. That was crushing. Interscope finally picked us up, and I was still painting dentists' offices when the album hit. Collapse )

Jay-Z's 2010 Voting PSA

Jay Z recently teamed up with Vote Again partner organization HeadCount to create a PSA that encourages young people to vote again in 2010.

The spot features Jay Z noting that young people have changed the world. Indeed, for over the last decade we’ve seen an increase in youth turnout. Jay Z wraps up the spot saying “Fight for what’s right, fight for what you believe in, and stay forever young.” Jay Z delivered this message to a huge crowd during his headlining performance at the Bonnaroo music festival in Tennessee on June 12.

According to HeadCount executive director Andy Bernstein, the moment shown in the PSA was a powerful experience:

“In a year when there is such negativity in this country, Jay-Z’s positive message is jolting and inspirational. When he told the crowd at Bonnaroo ‘We changed the world,’ it was a truly electric moment. Thousands of people got goosebumps, and I knew it would make an unforgettable PSA.”

While the public service announcement premiered today on Rolling Stone, it will also run on CBS, Fuse and other major networks.

Boyfriend Of Jersey Shore Star Angelina Hospitalized After Street Fight

Jeff Miranda’s romantic relationships with two of Jersey Shore’s most popular cast members have landed him bloodied and bruised.

Snooki’s ex-beau, who has since hooked up with co-star Angelina Pivarnick, was beaten up by a group of thugs who followed him out of local night club on Saturday -- and only RadarOnline.com has the exclusive photos from Jeff’s hospital bedside.

In an exclusive interview, Miranda told RadarOnline.com the four men yelled at him, “You f**ked that little oompa-loompa and now you're with that f**king Hamster!” -- a reference to Snooki and Angelina.

“I wanted to protect Angelina but these guys went nuts and one punched me in the nose,” Miranda said.

“My eyes went blurry and another guy knocked me to the ground and started kicking me with a steel tipped boot, fracturing my rib.”

Miranda was rushed to St. Michaels Hospital in Newark, New Jersey, where he was treated for his injuries, including the busted rib and facial lacerations.

Jeff told RadarOnline.com this was not the first time the couple had encountered angry fans and violent behavior.

“People always talk sh*t to us and call Angelina a ‘hampster’ and me ‘fame whore’ and try to start fights with us,” he said.

“But I really like Angelina, even though I feel like people just want to start fights whenever we are out together.”

The Neon Rise of Eccentric Pop

In today’s world of acceleration, destruction, and subtly-cloaked insanity, contradictions are fast becoming the new normative in almost any situation. To pursue dreams of media stardom and photographic fame in the age of oil spills and you-name-it crises takes both an awareness and defiance of your surroundings that most world citizens don’t dare to train for, let alone muster. So, it is with apropos circumstance that I meet and talk with the dualistic Marina Diamandis during the mildest, contrarian summer weather Los Angeles has ever tasted, a sweet benefit of a bulimic world climate eating itself.

Porn Star Tests Positive For H.I.V.

An anonymous porn star tested positive for H.I.V., according to a clinic outside Los Angeles that mainly caters to workers in the adult film industry. Vivid Videos and Wicked Entertainment, the two biggest studios in the region (if not the country), responded to the news by shutting down production. It's the first case in more than a year. In 2004, an outbreak led the industry to go dark for a month. Local public health officials triggered a wave of concern and outrage last year when they revealed that there had been 16 unpublicized cases since then. Officials are notifying the infected performer's previous partners, and AIDS activists are calling for tighter enforcement of condom rules.

ANALYZING CHUCK RATINGS: Chuck 4.04 Steady In Face Of Major Competition

I’ll admit it, I was bracing myself for bad news this morning. Chuck aired against two major sporting events last night – Favre on Monday Night Football and the Giants clenching the NLCS – plus pre-emptions in several markets for local election debates, so I expected to see a significant drop. Guess what? In the face of such strong competition, pretty much everything except Chuck lost viewers.

According to the fast overnight ratings, “Chuck vs. the Coup d’Etat” held steady with last week’s numbers, pulling a 1.9 in the 18-49 demo and watched by approximately 5.5 million viewers. In comparison, House fell another 10% over last week to a possible series low (ouch!). CBS saw HIMYM drop 3% while Rules of Engagement was the only other show to hold steady from last week. Dancing With The Stars also fell to a 3.75 during the Chuck timeslot, and will likely adjust down in the finals.

Additional good news/bad news from NBC’s other Monday night offerings as The Event dropped 8% to a 2.2 in the demo and Chase tumbled another 12% to a 1.5. With Outlaw already canceled, Undercovers underperforming, and these two new Monday night shows free-falling, Chuck‘s stability with little promotion has to be looking better and better. That’s good news for us, bad news for those sites that have been sounding the death knell for Chuck with such certainty.

Celebrity Couples We Still Believe In

With the news that Courteney Cox and David Arquette have decided to split surprised us, not only because we didn’t see it coming, but also because it elicited in us an emotional response we rarely exhibit toward celebrities: genuine sadness. We like Courteney Cox and David Arquette. And we liked them as a couple: the pretty girl who is unafraid to make an ass of herself for laughs, and the dorky guy from the weird-but-famous family who is never killed in horror movies because he's too un-cute. They were supposed to make it! We got to thinking: This wasn't the only recent breakup that rocked us to the core. What about Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins? Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy? Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes? In a sea of shallow people who get engaged at the drop of a hat, these were people we thought had considered their relationships before entering into them. People who were smart and normal (or at least similarly crazy) enough to go the distance. We've lost a lot of such couples this year. So who's left?

Clint Howard: Young Hollywood Conservatives Should Be Cautious When Speaking Out

Since Clint [Howard] isn’t an A-List Hollywood celebrity, he’s not too worried about how his conservative beliefs might affect his career.

“I’m in a good spot because, you know what? It doesn’t really matter,” he said. “The fact is, the studios aren’t banging down my door, the networks aren’t banging down my door. I work in a lot of little funky movies … so it’s not like I’m throwing everything away by stepping out of the closet.”

In fact, Howard said that he hopes his Heritage videos might actually help his acting career.

After playing so many goofy characters, he said, “selfishly for me, this was an opportunity for me to get a piece of tape of myself that is attorney-like, doctor-like, politician-like. … It was a nice opportunity as an actor to step up and show my skills.”

Still, he said, it would be wise for young Hollywood conservatives to exercise caution when speaking their minds.

“I’d tell young people trying to break into and succeed in the business: Be careful about this stuff,” he said.

“In general, we’ve all sort of kept our mouths shut,” Howard said of his Republican cohort. “A lot of us got fed up with the harsh attacks on President Bush when he made the decision to prosecute the first war in Afghanistan and then to make the move into Iraq. … On a few sets, I did not speak up. I wanted to, but there were some real liberal-minded people that were just throwing nasty stuff around about our president and I just felt like that’s what I wanted to do — fight back – and instead of fighting back, this like-minded fellowship has given us all a bit of release and a place to go and share.”

Are there many conservatives on ONTD? If you're conservative and proud, can I get a holla?!

A Videogame Post -- Could This Actor Be Right For The Uncharted Flick?

This is Nathan Fillion. He's a television star. Nathan, Nathan, Nathan? The hero of adventure franchise Uncharted is named Nathan. That series is getting a movie version, and actor Nathan seems keen.

"If ever there was a Twitter campaign, let this be it," the actor tweeted, linking a news blurb about the flick. "Rise, ye Browncoats. Rise, ye Castillions. RISE!"

As website Eurogamer points out, "Browncoats" is a reference to Fillion's previous show, sci-fi cult program Firefly. "Castillions" is a reference to his current show, Castle.

The Uncharted film will be helmed by David O Russel of Three Kings and screaming at Lily Tomlin fame.

Nolan North does the voice acting for Uncharted's Nathan Drake, but the character's film counterpart has yet to be cast. SOURCE

"Katy is my friend! I would never diss her. I don’t see her as my rival. My only rival is myself, because I always wanna get better and better.

They don’t realise that everyone of us has their own style. I love Katy’s music! That’s why I wanna make a duet with her. We’re already working on it”.


Jennifer Aniston hopes Courteney and David don't rush into divorce

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The shocking news that David Arquette and Courteney Cox have separated after 11 years of marriage took everyone by surprise this week, except Courteney's longtime pal Jennifer Aniston.

"Jen has known for some time that the couple was in trouble but hoped and prayed they would be able to work it out," a friend of the actress tells me. "No one knows how painful divorce is more than Jen and she hopes they don't rush into it without exhausting every possibility to stay together."

Which clearly didn't include a groggy and teary David calling into Howard Stern's radio show yesterday morning and airing the notoriously private couple's dirty laundry in public.

"Telling Howard that they haven't had sex in four months is not the way David is going to win back his wife!" an insider tells me. "What he did on Howard confirmed Cox's biggest complaint about her husband, that he needs to just grow up."

There's been no word yet if Courteney is going to listen to Jen's advice and give the marriage another try, however, friends tell me no matter what Courteney decides to do, Jen will support her.

"Goodness knows Courteney supported Jen during her breakup with Brad Pitt. Now it's Jens turn to be to supportive. After all, isn't that what a friend is for." Oh wait, I get it!

Despite David stupidly proving Courteney's point yesterday, I really hope they can work their problems out.

Gunn also revealed that he is "mystified" at Kate Gosselin's transformation from a "soccer mom" to a "cougar", but said that he approves of Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively's taste, saying that she "understands clothes".

Danielle Staub Launching A Jewelry Line!

The "Real Housewives of New Jersey’s" Danielle Staub is expanding her empire ... yet again: She’s planning to launch a jewelry collection!

Staub, who already has a T-shirt collection called “Danielle’s Mafia,” exclusively reveals to TooFab that she’s in the midst of designing a cross-inspired line and she hopes to launch it in time for the holiday season.

“I want the crosses to be an insignia of just being close whether it’s a religious thing, or a relationship thing. It’s a nod to my song [with singer Lori Michaels, "Real Close"],” she says. “I already have the design of the cross. The cross to me is not gothic, but very sweet, big, bold and beautiful."

The collection, Staub tells TooFab, will span the accessories spectrum. “I want to do rings, and I want to do necklaces, but I want to keep them on leather or black rope. I don’t like necklace chains around my neck, so I’m not going to put them in the collection. I also want to do cuffs, but I want them to be adjustable.” As for earrings, Staub says she’s passing, since “I think they’ll be too heavy.”

Drake Confirms He Wrote Alicia Keys' "Un-Thinkable" for Nicki Minaj

It's true. Two weeks ago Nicki Minaj revealed to Complex magazine that Drake told her he wrote Alicia Keys' "Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)" with her in mind.

"You know what else he told me he wrote for me?" Nicki told Complex. "The Alicia Keys song 'I'm Ready.' I happen to love the song. I never told anyone that, I hope he won't get mad that I said that."

While Nicki says she didn't take Drizzy's revelation seriously, the rapper recently confirmed that the lyrics were inspired by his label mate.

"It is [about Minaj], I’m not gonna lie," Drake told BET.com. "The concept came from a conversation that we had, or conversations we have. I wrote it based off two things: number one, based off that, and then two, based off Alicia [Keys] and Swizz and their situation and it just seemed fitting. It was like the perfect concept."

Taylor Swift has insisted that she will not throw a lavish gala in celebration of her 21st birthday.

The country star told Ladies Home Journal that she may celebrate the landmark birthday by simply having a glass of wine.

"Maybe I'll have a glass of wine - but nothing too hardcore for me. I've never had the burning desire to drink," she explained.

"I need to be in control of what I say, and if I drank, I'd stress out about saying the wrong thing at the wrong time."

Swift also revealed that she looks forward to throwing dinner parties for friends now that she has moved out of her parents' house and into her own home.

"I'm most excited about throwing dinner parties and cooking for people. The other night I made this dish with chicken, penne and capers that I am so proud of," she said.

Noisecreep Talks to Linkin Park's Chester Bennington About Saw 3D!

exclusively spoke to Chester Bennington, Linkin Park's vocalist, about his new role in the latest Saw movie, shooting in 3D, finding time to finish up Linkin Park's latest album and filming, etc...

The film is being billed as "the final act of a legend." And no, it's not a long-lost Tony Curtis movie. It's 'Saw 3D,' the seventh and last film in the 'Saw' franchise. And the sinister Jigsaw is going out with bang, not a buzz. In addition to being filmed in 3D, the movie will be the first (and last) of the series to feature a multi-platinum rock star in the jaws of death.

Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington plays a nefarious evildoer in the film, and the singer couldn't be more pleased. Noisecreep recently talked to Bennington about his love for the 'Saw' movies, how being in a Jigsaw trap is like filming a Linkin Park video, bizarre experiences off the set and his aspirations to do more acting in the future.

Gorgeous Glee star Lea Michele has revealed that she fell into acting by accident.

She’s now been in the business since she was a young child, but she admitted it almost didn’t happen.

"It was a joke, I just went to support my friend,” Lea explained. “But I auditioned and I got it. It was total luck.

“At that point, I wanted to work as a waiter or in a grocery store - I had that fake grocery store with the toy food and money. I was 8 years old - but I auditioned for Broadway and I got it.

“And I went from show to show until I came out to Los Angeles when I was 21.”

The actress- who plays Rachel in the hit comedy-musical also revealed that she isn’t much of a fan of LA where Glee is filmed, saying:

“I miss [New York]…. I feel like you can't be yourself in Los Angeles. It's very pretty when you visit, but if you're a real New Yorker, it's hard to live in Los Angeles.”

Katy Perry Explains Teenage Dream Album Name

Katy Perry has decided to reveal just why she named her latest album Teenage Dream, after repeatedly being asked about the title by her fans.

The record was released recently and has already produced the hit songs California Gurls, Teenage Dream and Firework.

As for that title, the 25-year-old explains: "I named the album Teenage Dream because it’s a song off the record that just makes you feel this euphoric feeling.

"When you’re a teenager and you’re falling in love for the first time, or you have a fantasy about someone you kind of idolize – like a person or somebody on a poster on your wall, and you’re just like maybe you wanted to meet them or be like them or fall in love with them.

"Teenage Dream is kind of that feeling I wanted to exude off this record, like I really want you guys to fall in love with me in your teenage dreams."

How Mark Salling’s Music Career Caused His Sudden Disappearance from Show!

Mark Salling was conspicuously missing from Glee Oct. 12 — they shipped him off to ‘juvenile hall’ — and HollywoodLife.com has learned why he’s gone, and why he might not come back.

McKinley High School’s bad boy Puck (played by Mark Salling), was banished to juvenile hall in the first scene of the Oct. 12 episode of Gleeand it looks like neither Puck nor Mark will be on the show for the foreseeable future. A source on the set tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively why Mark, 28, is out.

We’re told that Mark may have breached his contract by pursuing his own music career too aggressively. “Mark has been really focused on his own music and it’s actually gotten in the way of his Glee stuff,” our insider explains.

Mark has been very public about his rock-jazz fusion band, Jericho, which has released two albums, Smoke Signals in 2008 and Pipe Dreams just this month. According to our source, Glee execs are unhappy about Mark putting his music before the TV show — and were willing to axe his character to lay down the law.

Mark doesn’t appear to care. “His band means the world to him and he thinks that’s more important than the show at this point,” the source tells us, adding, “He’s young — and I think his team is giving him bad advice.”

We’re torn on the issue — as much as we love Mark’s commitment to Jericho, we want Puck back on our TVs every Tuesday night!

"I thought that was a joke. I think Parsons knew that. I think anyone on Earth could see that. Except the eighth degree, black belt idiots that compose the AOL homepage." Still, Baldwin isn't making the jump to Gmail just yet: "I'm still a loyal AOL user. In spite of the fact that its homepage content is written by the dumbest bastards in the world."

13 Movies Wrongly Rated

Movies With Harsh MPAA Ratings

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Blue Valentine
YEAR: 2010


There are many theories as to why this seemingly inoffensive indie movie was tagged with the dreaded NC-17 rating recently. The time-jumping film, directed by Derek Cianfrance, chronicles the dissolution of a couple’s (Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams) marriage. The MPAA is staying mum on its rationale for essentially crippling Blue Valentine’s marketability with a rating that prevents anyone under the age of 17 from seeing it. But Deadline’s Mike Fleming, who broke the story, believes that it stems from a scene in a hotel room in which Gosling’s character wants to have sex, but Williams’s doesn’t, leading to a reportedly upsetting result. However, those at Awards Daily believe the film was given an NC-17 rating because of a scene in which Gosling’s character performs oral sex on Williams’, bringing her to orgasm.

Directing Kristen Stewart is like ... what?

"She's very vulpine—very wolfish—and wily, kind of twitchy. Directing her is kind of like wrangling a herd of cats."

Welcome to the Rileys director Jake Scott when asked at a recent screening of the flick what it was like working with his leading lady, Kristen Stewart Now, before you get your Krisbian panties in a twist, the dude meant it in a good way. We think. Either way, he ended up über-impressed with Kristen's performance in the movie—and she did, too.

"[Kristen]'s been playing this same character in—what?—two or three movies now, and that frustrates her," Scott dished on Twilight. "She wants to be taken seriously as an actress—and the crazy thing is, before Twilight, she was doing that kind of work...She's very proud of her work in this movie."

One of those prevamp projects was actually how Kris landed the part as a runaway stripper in this family drama. Scott said he thought, "Oh my god, who is this kid?" when he saw Into the Wild. As he left the movie theater, he called Kristen's people and had an appointment set for the next day. And he definitely got an actress who's serious about her craft.

"Kristen, more than anyone, would go off-script or off-course, but it would be brilliant and it would work. But it would throw [Rileys costars] Jim [Gandolfini] and Melissa [Leo]."

Scott explained that the veteran actors would make adjustments during the scene for Kristen, because they "respected her so," and they were totally into the fact that it "kept them on their toes." Also, that was her character. She was unpredictable...an uncontrollable force," Scott explained.

If Stewart's still worried about being taken seriously as an actress, she won't after this low-budget baby hits theatres. Character-driven roles suit K.Stew, if we do say so ourselves.


Literally laughed out loud reading that line about directing her, the visual that left me was priceless. That being said, this movie looks pretty great. Will you see it, ONTD?

Poor Nuhdeen, Chezza Prevails

Girls Aloud lead singer Nadine Coyle will not be performing on The X Factor this year, according to show sources. The Irish member of Britain’s biggest girl group was previously rumoured to be performing her debut solo track ‘Insatiable’ on the show, however now it’s understood Cheryl Cole will instead be performing with will.i.am.

Nadine’s solo career has struggled to take off with radio stations failing to play her single and the video creeping in at only #39 on the Top 40 Chart. By comparison, Cheryl Cole’s new video for her track ‘Promise This’ is already in the top 10, weeks ahead of its release on October 25.

A source said: “The X Factor wants only the biggest names and stars to perform. This is a show which gets up to 20 million viewers watching every week, the show doesn’t need third rate performers and flop acts. Nadine was originally being considered for a slot, however bosses decided they could get more famous singers.”

Last year Cheryl Cole’s debut performance of ‘Fight For This Love’ attracted a then record breaking 15 million viewers to the show, a spectacle which she is due to repeat in two weeks time as she performs ‘Promise This’ on the show.

Tom Hard-y - Batman Villain?


: While Tom Hardy's plan to play Mad Max in the George Miller-directed Mad Max: Fury Road has hit another delay, the fast-rising Hardy's in the mix for another big film at Warner Bros. I'm told that Hardy has been set by his Inception director Chris Nolan for a lead role in the next Batman film at Warner Bros. Insiders are keeping the role secret and won't even say if he's up for a villain role, but that seems a reasonable assumption. Hardy has followed up Inception with lead roles in the Tomas Alfredson-directed  adaptation of the John Le Carre novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and he's currently starring with Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon in the McG-directed Fox comedy This Means War. CAA reps Hardy, who's expected to return to Fury Road when it goes.

"When she and Gary break up," she usually starts seeing someone else," a friend of Gary's tells Life & Style. "She's even dated people while she and Gary are still together! There have been a couple of times where she's snuck a guy out of the house through a window so Gary wouldn't catch them," the friend claims. "She finally came clean about one of the guys she had snuck out the window," says the friend. "She told him there was someone else after that, too."

Another shocking revelation? Amber has, in the past, left baby Leah unattended while she's fought outside with neighbors. On April 10 of this year, she came to blows with neighbor Tiffany Harless over a parking spot. The violence was so escalated, police had to be called. All the while, Harless tells Life & Style, baby Leah was in the house by herself. Her child was upstairs the whole time by herself," Harless tells Life & Style. "No one else was coming or going out of that house and no one was looking out for the baby."

Obama streaker’s $1m payout may be gone in a flash

A BILLIONAIRE internet mogul, who promised to pay $US1 million to anyone who streaked in front of President Barack Obama, is holding out on the cash.

Alki David, the heir to a shipping and bottle-plant empire who issued the online dare, now says video of Juan Rodriguez's birthday-suit sprint at a Philadelphia rally Sunday is inconclusive.

David said he would not pay a Staten Island man who took him up on the offer unless Mr Obama confirms he saw the naked dash.

"We're waiting to hear from the president to see if he, in fact, saw Juan Rodriguez during the streaking challenge. As soon as we get confirmation, we will make the payment."

The White House has already said it would not comment on the incident.

Mr Rodriguez, 24, stripped naked and screamed “Battlecam.com” less than 12 metres from Mr Obama. He also had the website’s name scrawled on his chest.

He was arrested and charged with indecent exposure and lewd behavior before being released on $10,000 bail.

Mr David admitted that traffic on his website doubled since the stunt.

Mr Rodriguez is banking on being paid in full. "I'm trying to get in touch with Mr. David. I've done everything I was supposed to do."

The father-of-three, who is separated from his wife, said he already has plans for the big prize. He wants to put some of the money aside for his kids' education and help his sister with some medical expenses.

NEW, NSFW Clip From Welcome to the Rileys

In advance of the limited release of Welcome to the Rileys on October 29, Samuel Goldwyn Films has granted Vulture this exclusive clip from the film, and it's a doozy. The Sundance drama stars Kristen Stewart as a wayward stripper and James Gandolfini as the stranger who takes an unexpected, paternal interest in her. In this clip, Gandolfini tries good-naturedly to clean up Stewart's vocabulary. (With the amount of NSFW word bombs Stewart casually throws out during the course of a simple conversation, Gandolfini definitely has his work cut out for him.) Enjoy ... just don't watch in front of any young, impressionable Twi-hards!

Ramona Singer has her own Pinot Grigio wine line!

We’ve seen Turtle Time on television, but we can down gallons of Pinot Grigio and never really experience the true essence of Turtle Time until we sip from Ramona Singer’s own cup. Thankfully she’s giving us all that opportunity with her very own line of Pinot Grigio with Opici Wines!
Always a driven business woman who’s already used her Real Housewives cache to marketed jewelry and skin care lines, Ramona had hit sure-fire gold with this idea.

The past three seasons of the Real Housewives of New York have had scarcely a moment when Ramona’s not holding a freshly topped off glass of Pinot Grigio (most RHs have a cold one in their bejeweled paws to help facilitate the drama). She’s been doing nothing but branding this whole time! You clever, renewed fox, you!

A 60 seconds spot to raise awareness of a disease that still kills in France a woman every 53 minutes..

Oprah Winfrey sits down with the stars of controversial TLC show Sister Wives to chat about their polygamous lifestyle on Thursday'sOprah Winfrey Show. Oprah asks if the Brown family (Kody is the husband, surrounded by his three wives on the couch) has considered the consequences of their lifestyle. If police in Utah pursue charges and the adults are thrown in jail, they will not be with their 16 children.

Says Christine: "I don't even want to think about that at all -- we never asked for the state to give us any sort of acknowledge or anything for our family. We just wanted to show our family."

Says Meri: "We wanted to be free to be this family."

Adds Robyn: "It was a choice for all of us."

As for why they decided to do the show, Kody answers, saying, "We figured that just by showing our lives, we'd actually help the society be more transparent, have other people in the -- in the lifestyle feel safer about being transparent. ..."



The greatest show on television to come back early

Those big red balls of ABC's obstacle-course game show Wipeout will soon be coated with ice: The network today is expected to announce plans for a winter edition of its summer stalwart.

Scheduled to debut in January for an eight-episode run, the new "Winter Wonderland" edition of Wipeout will boast cold-weather games such as the Wipeout Ski Lift, the Polar Bear Run, and the Spanker Sleds. (The "Hypothermia Hullabaloo" challenge was apparently ruled out, possibly after test runs ended poorly.)

ABC is considering the new batch of episodes to be a part of the Endemol USA–produced show's fourth season, which will now expand to 24 episodes (the remaining sixteen hours are slated to air next summer). Wipeout has been the savior of ABC's summer the past three years, giving the network a pulse during the off-season. It aired twice a week during its most recent run, helping ABC launch its modest scripted hit Rookie Blue on Thursdays.

A winter edition of Wipeout should be particularly helpful to ABC early next year, when the network will be dealing with both the loss of Lost and the usual January to February ratings slump that comes between cycles of Dancing With the Stars.

Spielbergmas 2011 is coming your way

DreamWorks Studios has firmed up its 2011 schedule after a week-long summit with Disney brass, including moving Steven Spielberg's "War Horse" from August 10 to Dec. 28.

That gives Spielberg two family pics to unwrap at Christmas. Paramount and Sony's 3D tentpole "Adventures of Tintin: Secret of Unicorn," directed by Spielberg, opens Dec. 23, 2011. DreamWorks doesn't have a stake in "Tin-Tin."

DreamWorks co-chair/CEO Stacey Snider said there are enough eyeballs during the year-end holiday season to support both films. "War Horse" is based on stage play, which was drawn from the classic young adult tome.

"War Horse" shift was one of several changes to DreamWorks' 2011 release calendar.

In a second shift, Shawn Levy's "Real Steel" will move up from Nov. 18 to Oct. 7 in order to give the Hugh Jackman event pic room to grow and play into the holiday frame.

And DreamWorks will now release femme-driven pic "The Help"--based on the best-selling book--on Aug. 12, the same frame that "Julie & Julia" and "Eat, Pray, Love" opened.

"It's historically a great date for women's event movies," Snider said.

Finally, DreamWorks and Disney has dated "Fright Night 3D" for Aug. 19.

Colin Farrell Splits From Baby-Mama Alicja Bachleda-Curus


Actor Colin Farrell has reportedly ended his relationship with Polish actress Alicja Bachleda-Curus, the mother of his son Henry. Read more on Colin Farrell’s split below.

Colin Farrell has split from his baby-mama Alicja Bachleda-Curus, according to reports.

The couple started dating after they met while filming the movie “Ondine” in 2008. Colin and Alicja welcomed a son in October 2009.

Sources claim Farrell ended the relationship because he didn’t want to be tied down. A source close to the couple reveals, “She realised that Colin is never going to marry her. He cares for Alicja and the baby but he wants to be a free spirit.”

It looks like Colin hasn’t wasted any time and was recently spotted partying in New York with British model Agyness Deyn.

Time to celebrate, he's single again!

Neil Patrick Harris to helm first feature film

Hollywood Renaissance man Neil Patrick Harris is taking on yet another role.

The “How I Met Your Mother” star and Emmy and Tony host is planning to make his feature directing debut with the romantic comedy “Aaron and Sarah.” The indie film has also attached Emma Roberts and Josh Hutcherson as its leads.

Written by Chad Gomez Creasey and Dara Resnik Creasey (TV’s “Pushing Daisies”), the story follows a geeky guy and a popular girl who become friends as freshmen in high school and see their relationship deepen through the four years, four proms and one funeral before graduation. The spec, originally titled “B.F.F.,” was purchased by Rogue Pictures several years ago before Fox 2000 picked it up out of turnaround.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand's Wedding Plans Revealed!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Katy Perry and Russell Brand's days of singlehood are quickly dwindling.

E! News has learned exclusively that celeb pals like Rihanna and Matt Kemp are leaving the states to attend the wedding in India—which is set to take place next week!

While we can't pinpoint the exact date of the vow-swap (some reports have pegged it as next Tuesday), Perry and Brand are planning a lavish days-long extravaganza celebrating their coupling.

Guests were given advance notice in the summer so they could get any needed shots and or visas.

Right now we're hearing that the I-do's will go down at the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, the same location where Brand proposed to Perry over New Year's following a whirlwind romance.

While the hotel has not confirmed it is hosting the Perry-Brand nuptials, the resort does boast about its first-class traditional wedding packages.

Processionals start at the gate of the hotel with the bridegroom sitting on a beautifully decorated horse that is escorted by camels and elephants. Folk dancers then welcome the couple with a traditional routine, fireworks and a special buggi (horse-driven cart) ushering them into the main garden for the wedding.

Of course, the couple would still need to have a civil ceremony in the U.S. for their union to be recognized here.

Wonder if there will be elephants at that one?

Howard Stern Defends David Arquette: "He's an Honorable Man"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Hang in there, David Arquette: You've got the King of All Media on your side.

Howard Stern took to to the airwaves today to defend the actor against "twisted" reports following his call-in interview on Stern's show yesterday. Stern said Arquette is an "honorable guy" who was just trying to do the right thing by addressing rumors about his split from his wife of 11 years, Courteney Cox.

"He was protecting his wife and kid by telling the truth,"
said Stern.

Arquette, a longtime friend of the radio show, called in yesterday, saying he simply wanted to set the story straight. But interest was fueled when news of his fling with Jasmine Waltz came out.

"People think I'm a sleazebag," Arquette had told Stern. "I spent 11 years of his marriage being the most faithful man in the world. You can't imagine how faithful I was."

Today Stern stuck up for Arquette, saying the actor was confronting the situation head-on and not hiding behind a publicist.

"Hang in there, David Arquette," said Stern after reading newspaper reports that blamed the actor for the split.

"He handled himself very well," Stern said. "He didn't hide away in his house. He went on a legitimate show and spoke his mind and it was refreshingly honest. Anyone who heard it knew he was being honest. He was on to explain why he was in pictures with another woman. It was already in the news!"

Maybe Scream 4 will bring these two back together. They met on the set of the first film in the franchise—long before their relationship turned into a tabloid horror show, that is.

Teen Mom's Farrah Gets A Boob Job!

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham has given her bust a boost! Star can exclusively reveal that Farrah had a breast augmentation last month that took her from an A cup to a C cup!

An insider close to Farrah tells Star the 19-year-old mother and part-time model went under the knife to enlarge her chest size in her hometown of Council Bluffs, Iowa. As we report in our Oct. 25 issue, a new-and-improved Farrah was practically popping out of her low-cut gown when she modeled for a hair show in Denver on Oct. 2.

"She appears to have more upper-breast fullness,” says Beverly Hills–based surgeon Dr. Stuart Linder, who has not treated the reality star. "Her overall results are good, and the implant size is proportional for her body type and frame."

'Glee': Mark Salling is still a regular and Puck will be back

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The recent "Duets" episode of "Glee" was missing one mohawked bad-boy, but don't worry! Puck (Mark Salling) won't be left to languish in juvie for long.

An online report claims that Salling would not be returning to "Glee" for the forseeable future due to a breach of contract. According to the report, Salling's off-screen music career was interfering with his obligation to "Glee," and he was put on an indefinite hiatus.

Since we bumped into Salling at the "Glee" premiere party and the FOX Fall Kickoff party -- both of which took place after the filming of "Duets" -- we were highly skeptical.

Sources close to Salling and the show assure Zap2it that isn't the case. "It's all incorrect. Of course Mark is still on the show, he just wasn't in that episode."

We're assured that Salling didn't appear in the episode for creative reasons, not contractual trouble. Puck's short absence simply makes room for Sam (Chord Overstreet) to find his place in the "Glee" club -- and to sing his way into the heart of Puck's ex, Quinn (Dianna Agron).
It's not uncommon for series regulars to miss a few episodes here and there - Sue (Jane Lynch) and Emma (Jayma Mays) were also missing in action for the episode in question.

T.I. played a key role in talking a suicidal man off the ledge of a 22-story building in Atlanta today ... TMZ has learned.

It all went down earlier this afternoon -- when cops responded to a 911 call about a man who was threatening to jump off a building in downtown Atlanta.

We're told T.I. happened to be in the area and asked police if there was anything he could do to help out with the situation.

A source connected to the situation tells us cops allowed T.I. to communicate with the man -- and it was during their conversation that the guy decided to step back from the ledge.

The man was taken into police custody after the incident.

Calls to T.I.'s reps have not been returned.

ABC Picks Up Romeo & Juliet TV Show

Star-crossed lovers are nothing new on television, but ABC is taking things back to the beginning. The network has committed to developing Romeo & Juliet, a retelling of the William Shakespeare classic that may be directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who tackled Romeo-style romance in Twilight and was this close to directing a modern-day Hamlet with Emile Hirsch; unlike that project (and countless Romeo rip-offs over the years), this one won't be contemporized. There will be at least one key difference from the main text, though: Somehow, we doubt that the romantic leads of an ABC series will off themselves anytime soon. In that respect, consider Shakespeare's story fixed!

Mark Zuckerberg Likes SNL Skit About Him, Apparently Doesn’t Like ‘Back to the Future 2′

After this weekend’s Saturday Night Live/Facebook double header, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a Hulu link on his Facebook profile pointing to his faux guest appearance on “Weekend Update,” with the status “Andy Samberg plays me on SNL. I’m a big Andy Samberg fan so I thought this was funny.”

While having a sense of humor is pretty much a necessity if you are at the forefront of pop culture (and yes a top grossing Hollywood movie about you currently in theaters as well as not one but two skits about your company on SNL is pretty much that), I think it’s particularly funny that Zuckerberg found the following lines funny.

“So Mark you went and saw The Social Network? Don’t be ridiculous, I’m 26 I stole it online.”

“I had three friends, because parents count. Do turtles count? No. Okay then, just the three.”

“I invented Facebook Seth, I didn’t invent getting successful to meet girls. I guarantee that the first thing the guy who invented the wheel did was roll up over some ladies … We’re men, we use what we’ve got.”

“I went on Oprah and I donated 100 million dollars to the Newark school system … Of course I did that to look good after the movie! What does it matter, it was a 100 million dollars, that’s hoverboard money!”

“I may not like what it says but its a really good movie.”

“Sean Parker gets Justin friggin Timberlake and I get Jesse Eisenberg. It’s like, hey we’re making a movie about Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. Steve you’re going to be played by Brad Pitt and Bill you’re going to played by a cardboard box with glasses on it.”

“My one regret for Facebook is ‘poking.’ Poking is creepy and lame and getting an email that your dad poked you is an enormous bummer.”

Chilean Miners Beat Michael Jackson and Obama

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

By now you’ve doubtless heard about the ongoing rescue of 33 Chilean miners, who have been tragically trapped 2,000 feet underground since August 5. After months of waiting, the miners are being rescued one by one and media organizations are broadcasting the footage of the recue effort live to a reported 1 billion people. That massive worldwide audience has led to some new records for live-streaming service Ustream, which has been broadcasting feeds from media organizations around the world.

Ustream says that it has served 5.3 million streams over the course of the rescue, tallying figures between 4AM October 11 until 4AM this morning (given the fact that the rescue is still going on, the final count will be significantly higher). In contrast, the two previous record holders — Michael Jackson’s memorial and President Obama’s inauguration — drew 4.6 million and 3.8 million total streams, respectively, which makes this Ustream’s most-watched event ever. To be fair though, the mining rescue operation has spanned a longer period of time than those events, so this isn’t an apples-to-apples comparison.

Dina Lohan Shopping Reality Show About Lindsay's Rehab Stint

Dina Lohan is allegedly shopping a new reality show pegged to her daughter Lindsay’s current trip to rehab. Lindsay is currently undergoing treatment at The Betty Ford Center in Palm Springs. As RadarOnline.com previously reported, she is being treated for an addiction to cocaine.

According to Kickster, Dina is planning for an upcoming visit with Lindsay and is allegedly hoping to sell photos of the trip (which her other kids Michael Jr., 22, Ali, 16, and Cody, 13, will be present for).

“Not only has Dina been 'shopping' around her upcoming trip to visit Lindsay in rehab at Betty Ford... to media outlets for the sale of pictures BUT she is doing it to develop a new REALITY SHOW!",” a source told the site. Dina has had forays into reality television before including a show on E! titled Living Lohan.

Michael Lohan says he's disgusted with his ex-wife's latest plan. "She can't get a show about her own life, so she's using Lindsay's troubles to get her a reality show," Michael told RadarOnline.com.

Bosnia Says "Yeah, No" To St. Angie & Angie's Rebuttal (UPDATED)

Bosnian authorities on Wednesday revoked permission for US star Angelina Jolie to shoot part of her directorial debut film there after complaints from a women war victims group, Bosnian radio reported. Gavrilo Grahovac, the Culture Minister of the Muslim-Croat federation -- one of the two entities in post-war Bosnia -- revoked permission to shoot scenes in Sarajevo and the central town Zenica, he said on Bosnian radio.

Hollywood trade daily Variety reported that the film will tell the story of a Serbian man and Bosnian woman who fall in love in the middle of the war, but are driven to take different paths. However Bosnian press reported the movie would be a love story between a Muslim victim and her rapist, a Serb, causing outrage among victims' groups. "They no longer have the authorisation to shoot in Bosnia. They will have it if they send us the scenario with a story which will be different from what we have been told by people who read it," Grahovac told the radio.

The culture minister said that while he could not stop the film from being shot somewhere else, revoking the filming license was a way to "express our disapproval for the shooting of a movie which does not tell the truth and hurts a large number of victims". Jolie has already started shooting the film in Hungary and was planning to continue it in Bosnia.

According to Bosnian actress Zana Marjanovic, who has landed the lead in the movie, the film is "an epic drama against the backdrop of the 1992-92 Bosnian war". But women war victims groups were up in arms over the film's reported subject of a rapist and his victim falling in love. "This is misleading history. Among thousands of testimonies by women raped during the war, there is not a single one that tells of a love story between a victim and her rapist," Bakira Hasecic, the head of the "Women victims of war" association in Sarajevo, told AFP. "We will not allow anyone to falsify our pain," she added.

International organisations have estimated that thousands of women were raped during the Bosnian war. In February 2001, the UN war crimes court for the former Yugoslavia convicted three Bosnian Serbs for crimes against humanity and war crimes after they were found guilty of rape and forced prostitution of Bosnian Muslim women in the southeastern town Foca. The verdict marked the first time an international court had ruled that rape was a crime against humanity.



The statement said Scout Film may reapply to provide necessary documentation to the ministry for the film which will be based on her own screenplay and will be acted solely by people from the region. "We were informed today that we need to amend the documentation and I have just forwarded the script to the ministry," said Edin Sarkic, the Scout Film executive producer and location manager, adding the ministry had never asked for a script but only for a synopsis.

"I hope the film will get the green light after the officials see the script," Sarkic told Reuters by telephone. "The film has nothing to do with the allegation made by this women's association. As we said before, it is only a love story."

Saying the movie was being filmed in Hungary, Jolie's Los Angeles-based spokesman said it was "not true" that that there had been any protest about the movie. When asked about Hasecic's complaint, he said she "brought something up, and UNHCR have been on the phone with her."

Jolie, who is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR, sent a letter to the women's group last week to reassure them about her film and proposed to meet them the next time she comes to Sarajevo. "Don't judge me before you see the film," Jolie said in a letter read to the women by Naveed Hussain, the UNHCR representative in Bosnia, and published in Oslobodjenje.

Jolie arrived in Sarajevo in August for a surprise visit and met members of Bosnia's inter-ethnic presidency to discuss ways to help thousands of returning war refugees. The actress visited returnees in eastern Bosnia in April with her partner Brad Pitt and promised then to come back.

This is about to get worse. It appears Jenn Sterger wasn't the only woman who received unwanted and inappropriate text messages from Brett Favre while he played for the Jets. Favre also pursued two team massage therapists, according to one of the women.

The woman (who wishes to remain anonymous for now — we'll call her "Mandy") worked as a massage therapist for the team for a couple years, but she says never had an incident with a player until No. 4 showed up at training camp at Hofstra University, where the Jets still worked out in 2008. "He was on the table next to mine," she tells me. "He was looking at my ass the whole time while I worked on another player. He was ... ogling me."

UPDATE: Marilyn has responded to Gavin's confession in an interview with In Touch, claiming their relationship was much more involved than Gavin let on:

"Gavin and Gwen are perfect for each other, but he was the love of my life," Marilyn told In Touch, adding that he dated Gavin for five years in the early '80s. When Boy George first discussed the former couple's romance in his 1995 memoir, Take It Like A Man, Marilyn kept quiet, even when Gavin denied their love. "He was just becoming successful in America," Marilyn explained. "I agreed to lie against every grain of my being." Now that Gavin has come clean about the relationship, Marilyn isn't feeling totally vindicated. "I think it's really hypocritical that Gavin can do an interview about me, yet me doing one about him is wrong!" he said today on his Facebook page.

PREVIOUSLY: Gavin Rossdale is coming clean about rumors of a gay fling in his past.

In his 1995 autobiography, Boy George wrote about Gavin having an affair in his teens with cross-dressing pop star Peter Robinson, known as Marilyn.

Gavin denied the story for years, but now admits to it in an interview with Details:
