Candice Swanepoel to Open This Year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show!


Apparently, Angels eat, work on their core strength, and are obsessed with Apple products.

“I have so many gadgets already—I’m a gadget freak. I think I should limit myself on the iThings,” Erin Heatherton confessed to FashionEtc. “I have an iPhone 4, and iPad, the MacBook Pro, the MacBook Air.”

Fellow Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel admitted to wanting an iPhone 4, “but I’m waiting for people to figure out the glitches,” she said, looking at Heatherton.

The Angels were on hand to host a dinner at New York’s Gramercy Park Hotel celebrating the launch of the new VS Angel fragrance, as well as the Dream Angels bra collections.

Both came from fittings for the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which takes place on November 9 and will air on CBS November 29.

“There are amazing wings this year,” Heatherton revealed to FashionEtc, “but I’m going to need to be working on my core strength.”

“My wings this year are light,” Swanepoel told us. “Last year, I almost wore these wings that looked like two harps. The day of the rehearsal, I couldn’t walk with them. I could walk, but it wasn’t a sexy walk. They were cut from the show which was sad because they took so much time to make.”

However, she’s facing an even more daunting task. “I’m opening the show and it’s extra pressure because you kind of start the energy of the show. All the other girls see your energy,” Swanepoel said, adding, “It’s a huge honor to be doing that.”

For the ballet-themed section, she will be wearing a fitted purple corset with wings. “It’s really elegant.”

Vampire Diaries Scoop: Original Vamp Claire Holt Previews This Week's 'Revealing' Flashback Ep



Flashback-crazed The Vampire Diaries is doing the time warp again.

This week’s episode (airing Thursday at 8/7c on The CW) travels back 1,000 years to Viking times and, not surprisingly, the hour promises to be a mythological bonanza.

“There’s going to be a lot revealed about the Original family and where we came from,” previews Claire Holt, who plays the newest Original vamp in Mystic Falls, Rebekah. For those keeping track at home, the clan also includes blonde, bad boy brother Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and dearly missed Elijah (Daniel Gillies, who returns in this week’s episode). We’ll also meet the Original mother, the powerful Esther (Alice Evans).

“You get to see how [Rebekah] interacts with her family and what it was like back then,” continues Holt, who says the episode sheds light on “how her relationship with her brothers and how her relationship with Klaus developed. [You'll see] why they became so close and why they are so loyal to each other.”

Perhaps it has something to do with Mikael, the big bad vampire that sends daggers of terror through even Klaus. “You’ll learn that there’s a very good reason why they’re afraid of him,” teases Holt. “It has a lot to do with their history and why they are the way they are… He’s definitely a threat to them.”

Coldplay Claims Third No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart


As expected, Coldplay climbs in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with its third chart-topping set, "Mylo Xyloto," selling 447,000 in its debut week according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"Mylo's" bow marks the third largest sales week of the year for an album, after Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" debut (1.1 million) and Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter IV" start (964,000). "Mylo" also earns the biggest week for a rock effort since U2's "No Line On the Horizon" debuted at No. 1 with 484,000 on the chart dated March 21, 2009.

Since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991, only five rock acts have claimed three albums that debuted with at least 400,000. Coldplay is the latest member of that group, which also includes U2 (three 400,000-plus debuts), the Beatles (three), Dave Matthews Band (five) and Metallica (six).

"Mylo" is Coldplay's fifth studio release and and its third straight studio set to reach No. 1. Its previous two -- 2008's "Viva La Vida Or Death and All His Friends" and 2005's "X&Y" -- both debuted at No. 1 as well, with 721,000 and 737,000 sold, respectively.

The Billboard 200's second-highest debut is Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger," which starts at No. 2 with 163,000 sold. It's the original "American Idol" champ's fifth album, and fifth consecutive to debut in the top three. Her last release, "All I Ever Wanted," was her second No. 1 album, when it debuted in the top slot with 255,000. The new album's first single, "Mr. Know It All," rises 16-15 on the Pop Songs airplay chart this week.

A step below Clarkson is Michael Buble, who bows his first full-length holiday album, "Christmas," at No. 3 with 141,000. It's his fifth top 10 set and his first long-player since "Crazy Love" bowed at No. 1 in 2009 with 132,000. Expect "Christmas'" sales to grow larger as Thanksgiving approaches and the holiday season kicks into high gear.

Mark Wahlberg, Marion Cotillard & Zoe Saldana Eye Guillaume Canet/James Gray Project ‘Blood Ties’



Given the Hollywood-friendly slickness of his directorial efforts to date, it was only a matter of time before French actor Guillaume Canet made a film in the U.S. The star of The Beach and Love Me If You Dare, among many others, stepped behind the camera to much acclaim with 2002’s Cesar-nominated Mon Idole, the 2007 thriller Tell No One (watch this, ONTD if you haven't yet) (which Ben Affleck is planning to remake), and followed it up with 2010’s Little White Lies, all of which showed an international sensibility.

Amy Winehouse feat. Nas – “Like Smoke”



Nas is Amy Winehouse's duet partner on "Like Smoke," the lead track from the late singer's rarities album "Lioness: Hidden Treasures."

The song, which mixes the MC's freshly recorded verses with a jazzy Winehouse hook, hit New York City's Hot 97 on Wednesday.

Last month, Nas, born Nasir Jones, revealed that Winehouse's "Back to Black" song "Me and Mr. Jones" was about him.

"I don't really remember if [producer] Salaam [Remi], who was really close to her, who introduced us, if he told me about it or not," he told XXL. "But I heard a lot about it before I even heard the song."

Remi produced "Like Smoke," which was initially recorded in 2008. Winehouse and Nas shared a birthday and were reportedly planning a dual party before her untimely death in July from alcohol poisoning.



Lioness: Hidden Treasures is out December 5th via Island.

Do you remember when Jessica Simpson wasn’t just famous for being Jessica Simpson? You know, way back when? When she was famous for real things like wearing denim short shorts? Or, even further back, when she was famous for being “that blonde girl who isn’t Britney Spears? No, no. Not Christina Aguilera. The other one. No, not Mandy Moore. The other other one. The one with the song.” Well, that was a long time ago. Now Jessica Simpson just embarrasses herself.

Simpson had a chat with Lucky magazine in which she discussed the criticism of her weight (because you can only ask famous women so many things) and the former singer had a few really dumb half-formed thoughts that she shoe-horned impressively into a single statement:

“I got so much scrutiny for putting on extra pounds, but I think that the decision not to make myself anorexic was actually great for branding,” she says. “Because when you’re really, really skinny, not everybody can relate to you.

Let’s just do this concisely: anorexia nervosa is a mental illness, not a branding tool. Fuck you.

So, since Halloween: Courtney Stodden turned up some place with her tits out, Kim Kardashian was tasteless and awful in a way that guranteed attention and now Jessica Simpson has said something jaw-droppingly stupid. The week is done.

CONFIRMED: ROCKER ALICE COOPER WILL BE IN TIM BURTON'S 'DARK SHADOWS'



Back in June the great Alice Cooper hinted that he would be cameoing in Tim Burton's upcoming vampire romp DARK SHADOWS, which is of course based on the classic soap opera. Well it's taken a few months but Cooper's involvement in the film has finally been officially confirmedvia The LA Times.

According to the Times' Hero Complex blog Cooper will be playing himself in the film, which is set in 1972. Johnny Depp's character, the recently revived vampire Barnabas Collins, hires the rock star to play a private ball at his seaside home in Maine. He'll be playing the classic "No More Mr. Nice Guy."

Apparently Cooper was blown away while on the set of the film, not only by the actual set but by Tim Burton as well:

"They should take that set and make it a haunted house next year."

The rocker is set to join Helena Bonham Carter, Chloe Moretz, Eva Green, Gulliver McGrath, Bella Heathcote, Johnny Depp, Ray Shirley, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller and Michelle Pfeiffer in the film.

In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas has the world at his feet¡ªor at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy¡­ until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Brouchard. A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive.

Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman, to help with her family troubles.

DARK SHADOWS is set to bite into theaters everywhere on May 11, 2012 so expect a lot more updates on this one as we get into the new year.

Jessica Biel Covers 'Elle' December 2011


On her status with [boyfriend] Justin Timberlake: “A girl doesn’t kiss and tell.”

On dating actors: “I think those are the people you meet and so it just kind of happens. Let me tell you: It never happens on purpose.”

On whether she plans to have children someday: “Sure, of course. And, yeah, I think probably at some point it would be something I’m interested in. But I don’t feel pressured. I was never one of those girls who dreamt of my wedding and my Prince Charming. To piss off my mom, I used to say, ‘I’m never having kids, and I’m going to be a fabulously rich old maid living in a house with cute butlers and dogs.’”

On whether she would consider leaving show business: “Absolutely. I’d love to write. I wrote a lot of short stories and poetry when I was a kid. That was my creative outlet. I’ve written a short film, and I write poetry.”

On whether she would go nude for another movie role after Powder Blue: “I wasn’t so scarred by that experience that I’d never do it again. If a director I trusted came to me with an amazing opportunity and it felt organic, I would do it.”

On shooting Total Recall with Colin Farrell: “The other day, Colin and I were in our harnesses, hoisted up 30 feet in the air looking down…The adrenaline rush of that was explosive. We hit the bottom, looked at each other, and burst into giggles. That was an I-love-my-job moment.”

On a role that got away: “The Notebook. That’s one that I wanted so badly. I was in the middle of shooting Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and I auditioned with Ryan Gosling in my trailer—covered in blood. [Director] Nick Cassavetes put me through the wringer in an interesting, excitingly creative way. But there’s a million that get away. We’re gluttons for punishment. It’s just rejection.”

Our First Glimpse at Justin Bieber's Alleged Baby Mama...This So Isn't Going to End Well.



Mariah Yeater has claimed Justin Bieber had told her it was his first time when they had a seedy liaison backstage at one of his concerts.

Yeater, 20, who alleges that Bieber is the father of her baby, said the 17-year-old singer had told her he was a virgin before hastily removing her clothes in a bathroom.

Californian Yeater also claims that her sexual encounter with Bieber was 'brief, lasting only approximately 30 seconds'.
Yeater reportedly claimed in court papers that she had sex after the singer’s October 25, 2010, concert at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.

In an affidavit, she allegedly said a security guard working for Bieber approached her and ‘asked if I wanted to meet Justin Bieber’ before shepherding her backstage.

‘After waiting for a short period of time with several young women, Justin Bieber appeared and engaged me in conversation,’ Miss Yeater reportedly says.

‘Immediately, it was obvious that we were mutually attracted to one another, and we began to kiss. Shortly thereafter, Justin Bieber suggested that I go with him to a private place where we could be alone.

‘I agreed…and on the walk to a private area, he told me he wanted to make love to me and this was going to be his first time.’

She said he led her to a bathroom where ‘immediately his personality changed drastically’.
She allegedly claimed: ‘He began touching me ... at the time I asked him to put a condom on for protection, but he insisted that he did not want to.’

Bond 23 Confirmed as 'Skyfall', Cast Revealed, Shooting Starts Today



As we first heard last week, EON Productions is throwing a press conference in London today to announce the details on Bond 23, now confirmed as being titled Skyfall. Additionally, the event included the film's producers, director Sam Mendes, and cast led by Daniel Craig and Judi Dench returning as M, as well as Bérénice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Javier Bardem (as the main villain), Ben Whishaw, Albert Finney and Ralph Fiennes. The movie will be a stand-alone story, co-written by John Logan, Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, and the title, Skyfall, has "some emotional resonance" that we'll understand once we see it.

The big reveal from these kind of press conferences is always the name and the cast, which thanks to news rumors over the last few months, we knew just about all of that information (unconfirmed officially until today) already. As for the character, the only details revealed were that Bérénice Marlohe would be playing a "glamorous, enigmatic character called Severin," while Harris is playing a field agent named Eve, possibly a character that may be involved in some action sequences. No word on the other characters and a rumored Moneypenny wasn't named or mentioned. Additionally, they will finally begin shooting today in London's Whitehall, but don't worry, there will still be "lots of surprises" Mendes promised during the press event.

Justin Bieber’s Baby Momma – Mariah Yeater Posts Topless PHOTOS


"Eddie Markhouse tells Inside Edition that his granddaughter, Mariah Yeater, doesn’t lie: I don’t know the whole story. But, from what I understood, she met him at a concert and he sent two security guards down off of the stage to bring her backstage to meet him, Markhouse said. She said they partied, had some drinks and they indulged in sex. She’s basically an honest good person. She’s got a big heart. She’s a good kid and she loves this baby."

Is a good kid now defined as someone who got knocked up in a bathroom by a guy who is underage and she knew less than an hour after drinking? She is practically Cinderella. Why, this story has got everything - baby making on a public toilet, unprotected stranger sex, underage drinking and statutory rape. (This must make me a saint or some other Jesus friend type person!)

To add to the good girl image, she has topless photos of herself posted on her social networking site. I am sure she was just showing off her cooch tats and decided she needed to go topless to get the full wholesome effect. (More toplessness - and shameless pimpery-  at source.)

Does Kendall Jenner get a car for her birthday (of course she does)?



Happy birthday, Kendall Jenner!

While the family may still be in the middle of sister Kim Kardashian's divorce drama, Ms. Jenner is celebrating her sweet 16 today.

Yeah, she wants a car to mark the milestone, but will parents Kris and Bruce Jenner be getting her one?

"Every teenager wants a car when they turn 16 because it gives them that sense of freedom," Kris recently told us while promoting her book Kris Jenner...and All Things Kardashian. "Kendall has to ask to be driven everywhere and her school's kind of far away from where we live so I think it would be a good thing for Kendall to have some wheels. So it just depends. She's such a great kid."


"Happy Birthday Kendall!!!!!!!!!!!!" Khloé tweeted this morning. "I love you more then you know!!!"

Kendall and the fam are currently planning her big b-day bash.

"She's not a partyzilla," Kris dished. "Her mother is though. I wanted this big party for Kendall and she was like, 'Mom, calm down!' "

Meanwhile, the reality TV momager has a birthday herself this week. She turns 56 on Friday.

"I just want to be with my friends and family," she said. "We've been filming the shows for a really long time and then it was the wedding and the New York show and traveling so you kind of crave just being with your friends and family."

It's Kendall's birthday, but ...more importantly... it's my birthday. So. I'll just leave that there.

Bieber - "It's Not My Baby" Spoof

Is Justin Bieber really a fan's baby daddy? Mariah Yeater says yes, and the Biebs says... well, he'd rather focus on music and not the gossip. Okay, fine. So it's no wonder Jimmy Fallon took a musical approach to the Bieber Baby Mama Drama last night, and came up with this spoof song "(It's Not My) Baby."




(click photo for video, it won't embed)

While most of us want to laugh at the absurdity of this whole situation, and some fans want to claw Yeater's eyes out, Yeater just wants one thing: Bieber's DNA.

From the bastion of truth and integrity, RadarOnline, comes these pressing details:

"Mariah Yeater is pursuing a modest and rightful claim. There is credible evidence that Justin Bieber is in fact the father of her baby. The evidence will be revealed in court." [...] "She is not seeking exorbitant compensation," Rogers and Pare told Star exclusively. "She merely requests that Justin Bieber provide a DNA sample to verify that he is the father of Mariah Yeater’s baby, and if so, to help provide child support as required by California law."

Oh, baby.

GREEK: Alternate Ending Released!



When Greek‘s third season was coming to a close back in 2010, the future of the ABC Family charmer was nothing but a big ol’ question mark.

Thankfully, showrunner Sean Smith had the presence of mind to shoot a fitting alternate ending should the worst come to pass (cancellation!) and Cappie and Co. didn’t have a chance to graduate. And guess what? We just got our hands on the lost footage!

Of course, ABC Family eventually came to its senses and gave Greek a much-deserved fourth and final season — with an adorably perfect ending  — but what if the network hadn’t?

Following Cappie and Casey’s breakup on the Myrtle Beach boardwalk in the Season 3 finale, Greek would’ve jumped ahead two years to find the gang reuniting for Rusty’s graduation from Cyprus-Rhodes University. Someone would have been engaged to an outsider, while others would have ended up with very surprising significant others.

Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry going up for auction

Actress Elizabeth Taylor was well-known for her glamorous baubles. Now, the Taylor estate is auctioning some of her most famous jewels to the public, and sales are expected to bring in $30 million. The Christie's auction will take place in New York on Dec. 13 through Dec. 14.

"These are the top jewels that Elizabeth Taylor received from the great loves of her life, Mike Todd and Richard Burton," Christie's jewelry expert Rahul Kadakia said. "They're from moments in life that were very dear to her."

Taylor expressed her wish to have her jewelry auctioned off after her death in her 2002 book, "My Love Affair with Jewelry." "I never, never thought of my jewelry as trophies," she wrote in the memoir that details where and when she got most of her jewelry. "I'm here to take care of them and to love them. When I die and they go off to auction I hope whoever buys them gives them a really good home." Taylor died in March 2011 at the age of 79.

Kim Kardashian: I'm so distraught, I can't function

Photobucket

Kim Kardashian is telling friends ... she is so "distraught" over the divorce and torrent of publicity that followed, she's bailing on her Australian appearances and returning to the US of A.

Kim is moaning to friends, The Melbourne Cup appearance -- a Thoroughbred horse race -- is the first time she's ever missed work, but she says she just can't handle it.

And, we're told she's saying, "I need to take care of me now, and I can't work for awhile."

It's unclear if Kim means that she's put the brakes on her reality show, or whether she'll be selective as to what she does and doesn't do.

Demi's Affair with Ashton's Friend Ben Hollingsworth



Demi Moore has seen two of Ashton Kutcher’s young mistresses go public within the past few weeks. But in a shocking turn of events, In Touch can exclusively reveal that Demi, 48, has been unfaithful, too, with Ashton’s even younger friend Ben Hollingsworth!

At first, she seemed to take an almost motherly interest in Ben, 27, helping the up and coming actor to find a place of his own, introducing him to her A-list husband and helping to enhance his career while appearing on The Beautiful Life, the CW series on which Ashton, 33, served as an executive producer. “She helped him so much,” the insider notes. But before long, the insider claims, it became clear that Demi’s interest in Ben was something other than maternal.

And then one fateful night, Demi picked Ben up after he’d been partying — and unleashed her inner cougar. “They wound up having sex in the back of the car,” the insider says. “It just kept going from there.” Although both of their reps are denying the affair, as their relationship grew more intense, Demi continued to help Ben in his career, even suggesting him for movie roles, introducing him to Hollywood movers and shakers and taking him out to all the right, hot places.

That is, until Ben began to feel guilty and abruptly pulled out of the affair. “He was getting to be better friends with Ashton and he felt bad about it,” the insider explains. Though Demi insisted to Ben that she and Ashton had an open marriage, he still didn’t feel right about it.

While she and Ashton are now in counseling with Kabbalah advisors, more bombshell revelations about their bizarre relationship will almostcertainly emerge.

Courtney Love pill bottle sculpture



If you were flipping through the crates of vintage vinyl at the WFMU Record Fair last weekend, you may have stumbled upon a bizarre found art display made out of (allegedly) a massive collection of Courtney Love's discarded pill bottles. The grungy, pharmaceutical junk art sculpture is the work of artists Katie Heffelfinger and Jed Miner, who collectively call themselves "occupytheartworld." They showcased the work, titled "Core Samples," nestled in between vendors selling records at the annual WFMU fair. "I thought about the most responsible way to display the stuff," Heffelfinger says. "I thought WFMU would have an erudite group of music listeners who would give me feedback about it as an art piece without slogging it through the mud."

Heffelfinger and Miner claim to have found Love's pill bottles, along with her financial records, letters she wrote to various celebrities and her daughter Frances Bean Cobain and (Hey! Wait!) a heart-shaped box on a loading dock outside a storage unit facility in June. After trying to contact Love's agent and manager to return the items with no success, Heffelfinger and Miner decided to turn the pill bottle stash into art. "Since her people couldn't get back to me, I waited three months then decided to start displaying the work," she says.

As for the future of the drug sculpture (which displays a whopping 57 pill bottles), Heffelfinger says she and Miner plan to display the work on the corner of 10th Avenue and 25th Street during Gallery Walks later this month, and at a show for the art collective ConArtist in February. "And if Richard Prince or Gagosian is interested, I'm here," adds Heffelfinger. And are these pill artists worried about incurring Love's wrath for flogging her personal items? "Some people are scared Courtney will come and physically attack us," Miner says. "We are prepared for that. Katie is a mud wrestling champion."

vintage madonna letter



Madonna was a 20-year-old drummer and virtually unknown in the world of showbiz when she hand-wrote this typically unabashed cover letter to Stephen Lewicki, a first-time filmmaker on the lookout for a female to play the lead in his erotic thriller, “A Certain Sacrifice”.

It’s a great read and essentially a brief, but entertaining look back at Madonna’s early life.

Clearly Lewicki was impressed, as Madonna got the part; her first movie role in fact.

She then, unsuccessfully, attempted to block its release a long 6 years later, in 1985, by which time she was already a star.

Conan "Pushes the Envelope" TONIGHT on Late Night Television



America's favorite ginger Conan O'Brien will personally perform a same-sex wedding during tonight's show on TBS. Airing from NYC, the event marks the first same-sex wedding on late night television.

Please note: The wedding is not a comedy bit. It's a "real, legally binding, same-sex marriage between our show's costume designer, Scott Cronick, and his partner, David Gorshein," explains Conan during last night's mention of the upcoming nuptials. The crowd cheers and applauds after hearing the news.

Conan, who usually shoots in L.A., is gracing the Big Apple this week and will marry the couple on the stage of the Beacon Theatre.

"I'm pretty good," he boasts.

Conan continues with his bit, showcasing how news stations nationwide have caught wind of the story.

"Each one is putting its own unique spin on it," he says. The video that follows shows, and we counted, 18 separate instances of media reporting on the event, all introducing the story using the same line, "Conan O'Brien may be about to push the envelope on late night television." There is very little variation in the intros, shaming media outlets on their lack of lede creativity. We're happy we started with a ginger mention.

Conan's funny man co-host Andy Richter reacts to the mashup by suggesting, "We gotta get an envelope!"

GWAR GUITARIST CORY SMOOT (AKA FLATTUS MAXIMUS) FOUND DEAD




GWAR frontman Dave Brockie (a.k.a. Oderus Urungus) has released the following statement to MetalSucks:

"It is with a sense of profound loss and tragedy that the members of GWAR must announce the passing of their longtime guitarist and beloved friend Cory Smoot, also known to thousands of metal fans worldwide as Flattus Maximus. Cory was found deceased this morning as the band prepared for a border crossing. There is no word as to the cause of death and the members of GWAR are completely shocked and devastated that this has occurred. At this point there is no word on arrangements and the disposition of the remainder of GWAR's current North American tour, nor are there any details regarding long-term plans. At this point we are just dealing with the loss of our dear friend and brother, one of the most talented guitar players in metal today. We ask that our fans and the media be respectful of our request for privacy for those that have suffered this terrible loss. A full statement will be coming in the next day or so, in the meantime please give your thoughts and your prayers to Cory, his family, and all the people that love him."

Cory joined GWAR in September 2002. Being a talented producer, he lent his technical skills to the recording of "War Party", and co-produced, as well as co-mixed with Devin Townsend (STEVE VAI, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) GWAR's 2006 release, titled "Beyond Hell". The two albums were recorded at Karma Studios, owned and operated by Smoot.

Smoot was the longest-running Flattus and was in the videos for "War Party", "Bring Back The Bomb", "Womb With A View", "School's Out" and "Eighth Lock". Smoot was considered by GWAR fans to be the "true Flattus", as he was the longest-serving person to portray the character in GWAR history. Smoot also produced the follow-up to "Beyond Hell", "Lust In Space", along with other members of GWAR, and even sang lead vocals on the track "Release The Flies". GWAR's latest release, "Bloody Pit Of Horror", features a 12-minute epic of four songs strung together, which was largely the brainchild of Smoot. Originally he wrote the music for a solo project of his, but by the suggestion of Dave Brockie, it was reworked to become new GWAR material.

FIRST LOOK! Scarlett Johansson's new Dolce & Gabbana short film!



The short film which was shot by Jean Baptiste Mondino (and inspired by Italian filmmakers like Federico Fellini), and shows behind-the-scenes footage of the designers working on set with lace, as well as the fashion house's muse, Scarlett Johansson. The actress, decked out in '60s era hair, cat-eye liner and a form-fitting lace dress, portrays a starlet being interviewed between takes.

I'm not a fan of the short film, to be honest. It looks like more of an SNL commercial (you know I'm right).

Detroit Wants to Disinvite Nickelback from its Thanksgiving Game

Photobucket

From the Motown Sound to the Motor City Madman, from the MC5 to Mitch Ryder, from Bob Seger to "Detroit Rock City," from Kid Rock to "8 Mile," the city of Detroit has a rich history when it comes to all kinds of rock and roll. And that's why the NFL really goofed up when it set the entertainment for this year's Detroit Lions Thanksgiving game -- another estimable Motor City tradition.

For the first time in eons, the Lions are a very exciting and competitive team, which means that football fans around the country will not be scheduling their post-Tryptophan naps to coincide with the appearance of Ford Field's home team. It's a marquee game for once, so you'd think that a tribute to some tough Detroit rock would be in order.

Nope. Instead, the league has presented us with halftime entertainment in the form of the inexplicably popular proto-generic post-grunge band Nickelback. That's right -- these seventh-generation Pearl Jammers are set to whine and squall at halftime of the Lions' game against the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving Day, and the city of Detroit is not at all happy about it.

Some Lions fans have taken this to the Internet, and created a petition at change.org, begging the NFL to get the band (which is from Canada, by the way — aren't there some CFL games it could inhabit?) out of the picture.

Casting News for Steve Buscemi’s "Queer" Adaptation

Guy Pearce, Ben Foster and Kelly MacDonald Cast In Steve Buscemi’s Queer Adaptation



Early last year it was announced that Steve Buscemi would be directing the film adaptation of William S. Burroughs’ novel Queer. Now the cast has been announced and will feature Guy Pearce, Ben Foster and Kelly MacDonald.

Buscemi will be directing the script from Oren Moverman, who directed Buscemi in his films The Messenger and Rampart. Foster also worked with Moverman in both films, and Buscemi works with MacDonald on the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.

Moverman has said that hopefully they will start filming Queer once Busemi is in hiatus after the next season of Boardwalk Empire is over.

Queer is the story of Lee, who lives in Mexico with his drunkard wife and their two kids in the 1950s and tries to find men to have sexual encounters with. The novel was released 30 years after Burroughs originally wrote it and was semi-autobiographical.

Inspired by her twin daughters, actress Marcia Cross raises awareness of childhood hunger.


This time of year, when many of us begin to get caught up in a joyous whirlwind of togetherness, delicious meals, and holiday celebration, it is sobering to remember that so many families — some in our own towns and neighborhoods — struggle just to put food on the table. Naturally we count our blessings, and, perhaps more so now than during other months, that gratitude we feel motivates us to seek out more creative ways to lend a hand to those who are less fortunate.

Marcia Cross, 49, star of Desperate Housewives (now in its eighth and final season), and the mother of 4-year-old twins Eden and Savannah, embodies that spirit of gratitude and giving back. She’s long been an avid supporter of a variety of causes that are dear to her heart (and ours), from women’s health to cancer research. More recently, the experience of becoming a mom inspired her to join with the organization Feeding America in the fight against childhood hunger. We asked Cross to help us get the message out about how important it is to put food on the tables of underserved children and how you and your child can make a difference in the lives of other families. We also caught up with the actress about her surprising plans for after her show concludes in the spring.

That whole Reedtallica thing just got worse

Darren Aronofsky will direct a music video from the new Metallica and Lou Reed album, "Lulu."

The Oscar-nominated director of "Black Swan" and "The Wrestler" will produce a video for the track, "Iced Honey." Aronofsky brings his cameraman, Matthew Libatique, to the project as director of photography. The clip will be shot in the San Francisco Bay area and will be available for viewing later this month.

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said Thursday that working with Reed and Aronofsky is "living the dream."

And the avant-garde Reed said he hopes the video can be "his Black Swan." [Eaux.]

Released Tuesday, the joint venture between the singer-songwriter and the metal band was inspired by German playwright Frank Wedekind. [Eaux.] Years ago, the Wedekind play, "Spring Awakening," won the Tony for best musical.

Note: I tagged this with the music / musician (other) tag b/c there is no music / musician (abomination) tag.

Elisabeth Moss to Star in BBC Miniseries




After the Playlist-favorite “Bright Star” starring Abbie Cornish and Ben Whishaw in 2009, Jane Campion was reportedly set to tackle a six-hour murder mystery miniseries titled “Top Of The Lake” with lensing slated to take place sometime this year. With the year almost over and nothing heard from the project since it’s announcement late last year, we were beginning to dread a potential break down of the project.

Thankfully, though, an update has arrived and not only is the project alive and kicking but Deadline reveals “Mad Men” star Elisabeth Moss is now set take on the lead role of a detective investigating the disappearance of a 12-year-old pregnant daughter of a local drug lord. The actress will shoot the series during her next break from the AMC series and will follow a long line of thespians including Holly Hunter, Kate Winslet, Nicole Kidman, Meg Ryan, Kerry Fox and Cornish to feature as a Campion female protagonist. It looks like another solid choice for Moss as well who, this year, complemented her television commitments with roles in Lawrence Kasdan‘s “Darling Companion” and Walter Salles’ “On The Road”—both due out next year.

“Top Of The Lake” reunites Campion with Gerard Lee, the writer of her 1989 film “Sweetie,” with Emile Sherman and Iain Canning (”The King’s Speech”) of See-Saw Films producing. Lensing will take place early 2012 in Queenstown, located on New Zealand’s South Island. Here’s an extended synopsis of the mini-series courtesy of the BBC;

Top Of The Lake is original drama at its finest, bringing to screen a unique landscape – remote, mountainous New Zealand – in a powerful and haunting story about our search for happiness in a paradise where honest work is hard to find.

A twelve-year-old girl stands chest deep in a frozen lake. She is five months pregnant, and she won’t say who the father is, insisting it was ‘no one’. Then she disappears. Robin Griffin, the investigating detective, will find this the case that tests her to her limits. In the search for Tui she will first have to find herself.


So, a neo-noir through the eyes of Campion set in her native New Zealand? Quite frankly, that sounds superb. The BBC and it’s Australian equivalent the ABC are already on board and, while no U.S. network has acquired the project yet, the Sundance Channel is already being rumored as a possibility.

Trouty Mouth's mom will show up before any of your favorite characters' moms, stay mad

imagebam.com

We've already shared our hopes and dreams with you Glee fans about what could happen when Sam Evans (Chord Overstreet) returns to McKinley High in episode eight, but now we have some new scoop to fixate on!

Glee is currently casting for Sam's mom, aka: Momma Trouty-Mouth, and we have first dibs as to who we think should grace Lima, Ohio with her presence. We've come up with some fabulous ladies who would be perfect to play the mom of a life-sized Ken doll and we need your help to decide who would be the very best...

That's right, take it all in! Sam's return is only four episodes away and rumor has it he'll be singing Bruno Mars' "The Lazy Song." However, the actress who will play his mom has not yet been unveiled. A little fishy has told us that they are looking for a blonde or brunette woman in her 40s. Hmm…

We automatically think that the mom should have some amazing comedic qualities—this is Glee, not American Horror Story—but she also should be a woman with some serious heart. Like Sam, she went through a lot in season two and although we didn't personally see it, it would be a bit odd if her life was now only sunshine and rainbows.

True, Glee will most likely cast a lesser-known actress for the part, but just let us dream, OK? Whoever this woman will be, we hear she might be around for more than one episode. We are so excited to finally get to meet some more parents this season (still waiting on Rachel's dads!), so we've rounded up out Top 5 Picks to join the cast as Mrs. Evans:

Canadian Drama 'Saving Hope' Seeks U.S. Partner


Entertainment One and "Rookie Blue" creator Ilana Frank will pitch the Erica Durance and Michael Shanks-starring medical drama in Los Angeles next week.

TORONTO – American fans of Smallville’s Erica Durance and Michael Shanks could yet see their new Canadian medical drama Saving Hope on U.S. TV sets after Entertainment One jumped on board as the international distributor.

Erica Durance and Michael Shanks in Canadian 'Saving Hope' Series
ABC Renews 'Rookie Blue' for Third Season

A U.S. broadcast slot is now a top priority for the Canadian series.

Toronto-based eOne has the worldwide TV, home entertainment, VOD and digital distribution rights to the Canuck drama from Rookie Blue creator Ilana Frank.

Frank and execs at the Canadian distributor will be in Los Angeles next week to pitch Saving Hope to U.S. networks and cable channels.

That follows Canadian broadcaster CTV ordering 12 one hours of the fast-paced Toronto hospital drama about a chief of surgery (Shanks) whose sudden illness leaves the medical facility in chaos, and his wife, also a doctor and played by Durance, in shock.

Homegrown Canadian dramas rarely get off the ground these days unless a Canadian indie producer can secure a U.S. broadcast partner, and other international financing.

Saving Hope, which includes a pilot episode shot in Toronto in spring 2011, also stars Huse Madhavji, Julia Taylor-Ross and Kristopher Turner.

The Canadian drama comes from indie producer Thump Inc.’s Ilana Frank and David Wellington.

The series pilot was written by co-creator Malcom MacRury and Morwyn Brebner.

Frank and Wellington, who will direct the drama, will executive produce Saving Hope along with Lesley Harrison.

Frank’s cop drama Rookie Blue has been renewed by ABC and Global Television in Canada for a third season.

Huh huh, You Love Us, You Really Love Us

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After a 14 year hiatus, the rebooted Beavis and Butt-head was embraced with open arms. The show pulled in an audience of 3.3 million viewers. Not surprisingly since almost all critics marked the episode with a perfect score, hailing it as a true return to form. Fans were equally responsive, commenting on IMDB and Facebook:"It's as if they froze the show when it ended, and thawed it out now." Other comments can be summarized as: all seems right with the world now that Beavis and Butt-head have returned.



As previously revealed, B&B are no longer just riffing on music videos. They're also wailing on MTV reality shows. The premiere featured swipes at Jersey Shore, and MTV True Life: Addicted To Porn, along with music videos for MGMT, Shrillex, LMFAO. The episode is available for viewing in full on MTV's web site.

Tonight, the character that inspired King of the Hill's Hank Hill, Tom Anderson returns. He tries to lend a helping hand in teaching the boys the way of the heart. Unfortunately, it's not his "hand" they long for. Also included, "Tech Support", where Beavis and Butt-head work in a phone bank -- a job which they are highly unqualified for. Beavis and Butt-head airs tonight at 10/9c PM on MTV.

Kelly Osbourne "apologizes" for transphobic rant

"Until then, I'd always thought the worst way to get cheated on would be with an ugly girl," explains Osbourne. "Don't you think? Because at least if they cheat on you with a gorgeous girl it makes some kind of sense. But men are different, I guess: They can have emotionless sex."

When Transadvocate.com called out Kelly for her "objectifying and dehumanizing" comments, and noted that "people die because people talk like you did of us," she got defensive, then apologized, then got defensive again before issuing another mea culpa amid a barrage of tweets.

"dont u dare accuse me of being against anything 2 do w/ the LGBT community," she fumed at first. "i have never given anything but 100% of my support."

She followed up with contrition: "i really am sorry i am so close to the lbgt community in every aspect of my life that i forget i am not a member myself! ... i again can only apologize my intention was never ever to hurt anyone i again thank for educating me!"

Kelly acknowledged that she "should have used better words" but took issue with being labeled "a bigot."

"i have been called every name under the sun," Osbourne harrumphed at her critic, "but i dont think anything has hurt me more then you calling me a bigot!" source

Jennifer Lopez To Ruin Childhoods Everywhere

Jennifer Lopez To Star As Carmen Sandiego in Live-Film Adaptation?

Walden Media has acquired rights to turn Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? into a live action film involving Jennifer Lopez. I’d heard that Walden Media will develop the property as a vehicle for Lopez to play the title character, but Walden Media said at this point, she’s attached to produce only. The hope is to turn the property into National Treasure meets The Thomas Crown Affair. The logline: when the ACME agency’s greatest detective Carmen Sandiego becomes the world’s greatest thief, it’s up to her former partner to follow her clues and track her down. Their cat and mouse game leads the partner to confront a greater mystery: is Carmen really a thief or a hero? The property originated as an educational computer game before it was turned into an animated TV series.

'Once Upon a Time,' Tim Allen Get Full Season Orders

ABC is giving out some happy endings.

Fairy tale drama Once Upon a Time is among three shows which just landed a full-season pickup at the network. The order is a bit unusual since only two episodes have aired, but Once is ranked as the highest-rated new drama of the fall, averaging 12.3 million viewers and a hearty 4.0 rating among adults 18-49. Plus, Once held onto its strong Sunday night premiere rating in Week 2 despite facing increased competition — and that’s very rare.

Here’s two more shows getting nine more episodes from ABC:

Tim Allen’s new comedy Last Man Standing (averaging 12.7 million viewers and a 3.7 according to “most current” data which includes some DVR playback). Standing has had some ratings erosion since it premiered, but has given ABC a foothold on Tuesdays at 8 p.m.

– And, yup, returning comedy Happy Endings (7.9 million, 3.5), which performed modestly as a midseason replacement earlier this year and has since blossomed in the fall.

Absent from the list: Pan Am (8.4 million, 2.8), which has been slightly below the line of what ABC wants to see on Sundays. ABC is ordering 5 more scripts for the show, but holding off on a pickup. With a new showrunner at the helm, the network is hoping the series will improve in the coming weeks (a press email this morning noted Pan Am is HUGE in Sweden … so it’s got that going for it).

The Best Characters on TV Right Now


Now that nearly all the new shows of the fall TV season have premiered (Once Upon a Time and Grimm both unmagically limped onto the scene last week), let's take a look at who we like the best right now. Television is largely about telling the same story over and over again. The one thing that can save the medium is a great character: part actor's performance and part writer's creation. Stumbling onto a great character is like discovering a particuarly pretty pebble on a rocky beach. From listless New Yorkers to men with half a face, these are our favorite TV characters right now.

Lindsay's first playboy shoot too classy; needs reshoots


Lindsay Lohan was given a week to check into jail to continue her nude shoot for Playboy magazine, but RadarOnline.com has learned that her first set of photos weren’t up to the standards of the venerated men’s magazine.

“Lindsay was told that the Playboy executives wanted to go another direction with her shoot so they asked her to come back for a second time,” a source exclusively told RadarOnline.com. “The first pictures of Lindsay weren’t exactly what they wanted so they have a new theme that they want to shoot,” the source said.

RadarOnline.com has learned that the new shoot will take place starting on Thursday, and the current plans are for Lindsay to be on the January cover of Hugh Hefner’s famous Playboy magazine.

“There is never a guarantee that everyone will like the photos or that they will be of high enough quality to use for the cover but Playboy wanted to make sure that Lindsay’s pictures were exactly what they wanted,” the source said.

The jail-bound starlet was reportedly paid almost $1 million for the fully nude shoot.

My blog for the Reunion episodes is *finally* up on Bravo.com. Here it is: "Moving Up And Moving On." I don't know what took them so long to get it up, but I do want you guys to always hear things directly from me. Unfortunately, they did edit a lot out (for length...?), but that's what my own blog is for! So here are the pieces they cut...

"I can’t believe Jacqueline thinks I put out a magazine story that says bad things about ME on the cover. How does that even make sense? I’m not even going to try and follow her logic anymore. I just hope she gets well... I can’t believe Caroline told the media her “children didn’t sign up for this.” They are grown adults and they actually did literally sign up for it. They have contracts and got paid. What do you call that? And Caroline keeps telling Jacqueline to let Ashley grow up?... I know Caroline and Jacqueline obsess about things and people and revenge (What sane person would stalk Danielle’s ex-husband? What sane person would be friends with Kim G? That’s just ugly.).

Jennifer Carpenter: Ex-husband Michael C. Hall is still ‘one of my best friends in the world’

Carpenter: "Just because the marriage ended doesn't mean the love isn't still there."



Dexter costars Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall may have ended their marriage, but according to the actress she still has nothing but love towards her ex-husband.

She admits that the vibe on set has changed since the split late last year , but she still considers him a great friend

“I mean, he is and always will be one of my best friends in the world,” she told E! Online . “And just because the marriage ended doesn't mean the love isn't still there. We take very good care of each other and our cast, we always have, and I'm just really lucky."

Carpenter, who play’s Michael C. Hall’s foster sister, Deb, on the show, says not only does she feel lucky to have a good relationship with her ex-husband, but also lucky to have a successful show.

"I'm grateful that it is successful," she said. "Because, you know, six years in and to still be challenged by the work and proud of the work is quite an accomplishment.”

As for whether she thinks Deb will ever find out Dexter’s big secret, she doesn’t count out the idea.

“I think that [Deb] has always suspected something dark, sort of like a dark undercurrent with him. There are just too many gaping holes with his schedule with how he connects and disconnects from her and other people,” she said. “So I don't think that she would say that 'He must wrap people in plastic, and drive knives through their ribcage.' You know?...I don't think it's quite cut and dry like that for her, but there is always a suspicion, and I feel like...I've always been right there with you the audience."

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Nene Leakes was spotted taping a segment for TV's "Extra!" with Maria Menounos in L.A. yesterday. And what Sheree revealed on "Wendy Show" today about why she and NeNe are no longer friends. See it all inside...

Meanwhile, fellow "Housewives" Sheree Whitfield, Kandi Burruss, and Phaedra Parks rolled to the "Wendy Williams Show" (along with Phaedra's hubby Apollo and Kandi's mom Joyce) this morning. And Sheree revealed why she and NeNe are no longer friends at all..due to fame blowing up NeNe's head:


“We were friends a long time ago. NeNe has really changed. The fame has totally changed her. It’s gone to her head. She just feels like she’s bigger than everybody."

And about the blowup we can see in the season preview--it was all over money:

"It was an appearance that I had to do; I brought NeNe in on it—actually Kim, as well—and she tried to pull from me and Kim, what we were getting. I don’t care about all the other things that she does, or things that she says ‘cause it really doesn’t affect me ‘cause we’re really not friends like that. We’re acquaintances. When you try pull money or take money from me, that’s just really low,” she added.

Anywho...the three ladies took Wendy's stage to try to perform the hit kandi wrote for TLC, "No Scrubs." Check the video below:

Why a Killer Deal to Turn the Hit Video Game Assassin’s Creed Into a Movie Has Shocked Hollywood



Last month, Variety reported that Sony will soon be signing a deal to adapt Assassin's Creed, Ubisoft's massively successful video game franchise. But Vulture has learned that this is no ordinary rights deal: With Creed one of the highest-selling modern game franchises (three installments have sold 30 million copies globally), Ubisoft was able to demand and receive an unheard of amount of control over the project. To make the deal, Sony had to grant the gaming company approval over just about everything — budget, principal cast, script, release date — and Hollywood spectators are flabbergasted. Notes one incredulous insider, “As a director, even Steven Spielberg cannot get this kind of deal.” And yet it's this very overarching power that may doom the project, as it has other gigantic video game movies. Notes one Hollywood talent agent who represents a smaller video game publisher, "The whole Ubisoft/Sony deal is a waste of ink, paper and time. The level of control Sony gave up means, effectively, that Assassin’s Creed will never — and I mean never — get made.”

Steve Jobs Back On Top



"Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson has been a huge seller since it hit stores October 24.
The book, titled simply "Steve Jobs," also achieved the biggest week of sales for any book in the U.S. for almost a year.


That's according to data from Nielsen's BookScan service, as reported by TheBookseller.com.

Published by Simon & Schuster on October 24, the book outsold the next bestselling book of the week, John Grisham's "The Litigators," by more than three to one. After only six days of sales, the Jobs biography is already the 18th-bestselling book of the year, according to BookScan's figures.

Simon & Schuster's decision to move up the book's publication by a month after Jobs' death October 5 appears to have paid off. Fueled by intense interest in the late tech visionary's life and career, the biography arrived on a wave of publicity, including appearances by Isaacson on CBS's "60 Minutes" and CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."

The 656-page book traces Jobs' 55 years of life, from his hippie youth and co-founding of Apple in his parents' Silicon Valley garage to his ouster from the company, triumphant return 11 years later and remarkable successes in the past decade with the iPod, iPhone and iPad.

The book has already produced plenty of headlines, including how Jobs regretted waiting too long after his cancer diagnosis to get surgery that might have saved him.

Actress Thandie Newton Voices Her Anger Over The Lack Of Black Women on Vogue's Covers

thandie1 Pictures, Images and Photos

Actress Thandie Newton, famous for her roles in the movies "Beloved" and "For Colored Girls," is calling out Vogue magazine on its lack of love for colored girls.

Newton, who is currently the face of Louis Vuitton's "Double Exposure" campaign, is feeling a bit (err a lot) slighted that she has not yet been asked to pose for Vogue's coveted cover.

First Lady Michelle Obama, Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson have all graced the cover of US Vogue, representing just a small sample of the talented, beautiful and accomplished black women that could also be included--Newton being one.

In an interview with Pride magazine, Newton doesn't pull any punches when speaking about her disappointment with the lack of diversity displayed at Vogue and beyond.

"Don't get me started on black people being on the cover of big magazines. It's so preposterous. I mean, I've been on the cover of Harper's Bazaar four times; I've been on the cover of InStyle four times, but Vogue, not once."
"And people say to me, I mean literally, people have said to me, 'What have you got against Vogue that you don't want to be on their cover?' And I just laugh."

The British born and based actress feels that the United States edition of Vogue sets the standard of what is accepted and expected when it comes to diversity for other top publications domestically and around the world.

"They [Vogue] don't feel the need to represent because it doesn't make any sense to them. It's just baffling to me, but as usual America will dictate the ways things go and a magazine like Vogue will just follow America," she said. "But it's like, don't you want to trail blaze?"

John Hawkes reveals character details for Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln"

The Oscar-nominated actor will help free the slaves in the long-awaited biopic.
Photobucket

John Hawkes, who won an Oscar nomination for his roles as a menacing uncle in "Winter's Bone" and who plays a manipulative cult leader in "Martha Marcy May Marlene," isn't looking to build on his body of creepy character work with more villains in the immediate future. Although he's been offered the part of Charlie Manson, he always turns it down. And while there's been speculation that he would play John Wilkes Booth in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln epic about to go into production, Hawkes told IFC that his part is actually very different.

"I'm playing a real-life guy who wasn't famous," the actor said. "He's a lobbyist from Albany, who is called in by the Secretary of State [William Seward, played by David Straitharn] to aid Lincoln's case."

Kim Kardashian flees Australia

EXCLUSIVE KIM Kardashian has left Melbourne racing organisers in the lurch after scratching her Stakes Day commitments at the last minute.



In a complete turnaround, the ubiquitous reality TV superstar, who was being paid to appear in the Swisse vitamins marquee at Flemington on Saturday said she would be unable to attend in the wake of her "devastating" divorce to Kris Humphries, The Daily Telegraph reported.

The decision is at odds with an interview Kardashian did yesterday, in which she said she "really didn't want to bail on everyone" and comes after two full days of media and endorsements for her family's new handbag range in Sydney.

In an exclusive statement to the Herald Sun today she said: "I am very disappointed that I am unable to attend the Swisse marquee but I hope to come back and work with the Swisse team at another point in time.''

Kardashian's contract with Swisse was understood to be worth more than $150,000 for a one-hour appearance.

It could not be confirmed whether money had exchanged hands.

A spokesman for the vitamin's giant confirmed the withdrawal and said they were disappointed.

"All indications were that Kim wanted to fulfill all of her commitments once she landed in Australia but has obviously changed her mind given her very difficult personal challenges at the moment," the spokesman said.

It is understood an email was sent out late yesterday afternoon canceling the Melbourne trip as it would be "too much" for the so-called celebrity.

Despite being too devastated to head to Melbourne, Kardashian was able to manage an in-store appearance spruiking her handbag range in Sydney today.

It's believed Swisse tried to get visiting sister Khloe as an eleventh hour substitute but were also turned down.

The siblings will now leave Sydney for LA tomorrow.


In her first TV interview since announcing the divorce, Kardashian yesterday told Sunrise she was a professional who kept her word.

"I really wanted to stick to my commitments to come out here," she said.

"I love our fan base out here.

"Of course I do really want some time to myself and it has been tough, but I didn't wanna bail on everyone and, you know, skip out on this commitment."

The millionaire family are notorious for signing endorsement deals and have flogged everything from sneakers to incontinence pads.

Kardashian was also due to appear at Westfield Southland to promote yet another product QuickTrim.

It's an issue dealt with commonly on their tv series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, with mother and manager Kris Jenner booking the deals and getting a 10 per cent cut.

Today they appeared instore at David Jones to further spruik their bags.

CONFIRMED: Garrett Hedlund tapped to star in WB's 'Akira'



Looks like those motorcycle skills Garrett Hedlund displayed in TRON: LEGACY are paying off: Though he's been biding his time since, his patience was rewarded, as the up-and-comer is in negotiations to star in WB's live-action AKIRA. SHOWBLITZ first reported when the film was greenlit last month that Hedlund was director Jaume Collet-Serra's top choice to play the lead role of Kenada -- and it looks like the studio agrees. Pic follows the leader of a biker gang who must save his friend with potentially destructive psychokinetic abilities from government medical experiments. Hedlund's name has been linked to a handful of films since TRON: LEGACY, but it looks like he always had his eye on this one. Sources say he had been meeting with Collet-Serra as early as August but, without a budget, no offer could be made until a greenlight was given.

Dina Lohan says Lindsay's Playboy shoot will be "tastefully done"; NOT full-frontal



Dina Lohan sat down with The Insider to discuss her eldest daughter and her new tell-all book.

In the segment, which airs tomorrow on CBS, Dina attempts to rationalise the 25-year-old actress' decision to pose semi-nude for the magazine.

Dina Lohan says that daughter Lindsay's Playboy cover will be 'tastefully done' and confirmed that Lindsay will be on the magazine's cover and not just photographed for an inside spread.

She told The Insider's Christina McLarty: 'It was an opportunity for her and she's done thousands and thousands of covers, so this was just something...she's 25 now. It was just something that was her decision...we have a contractual say in how far it goes and her and Mr. Hefner will decide.'

Dina continued: 'She'll pick five covers, he'll pick the one, but she has a say. I don't want to get into the contract, but it will be tastefully done.'

A source told E! Online today that the Machete actress will be appearing in the magazine wearing nothing but her underwear. But Dina confirmed the shoot will not be full frontal as previously reported.

The website alleges that the messy starlet is due to shoot a do-over of her spread for the magazine tomorrow, which will push her surrender time back for another 24 hours.

It has been rumoured that Lindsay will appear in either the December of January issues of Hugh Hefner's infamous magazine filled with scantily clad women.

While Dina didn't confirm Lindsay's publication date, she did freely discuss Lindsay's recent legal problems.

Lindsay Lohan Is A Better Pick For Amanda Seyfried's Linda Lovelace Role




Poor Lindsay Lohan. Another day, another dose of bad luck. While Lindsay's super-busy with her court hearings and jail sentencing, her rival Amanda Seyfried has stolen a plum movie role right from under her. That's right. Seyfried is in talks to play real-life porn star Linda Lovelace in the bio pic Lovelace. Lohan was supposed to star in the low-budget other Linda Lovelace movie currently in development, titled Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story. Sadly, that role fell through for her and went to relative unknown Malin Akerman. And, well, let's face it. Now that Amanda Seyfried nabbed Lovelace, this Inferno version will probably never see the light of day. Malin who?

God, this totally should have been LiLo's role!

Lindsay Lohan is the one who, well, now with her explicit shoot for Playboy Magazine and all, practically is Linda Lovelace! Heck, they even have the same initials. But noooo! While Lindsay trots off to jail for a month, Amanda is flitting about in fabulous dresses promoting her latest movie, In Time, giggling about making out with Justin Timberlake and snagging the juicy roles.

You could consider this the perfect revenge for last year's rumors that Lindsay messed around with Amanda's boyfriend Dominic Cooper. But Amanda is above such petty things. And did I mention Amanda may star opposite dishy Peter Sarsgaard, in talks to play Lovelace's husband Chuck Traynor? Can't wait to read more giggling interviews by Amanda about making out with Peter.

People love to mock LiLo, but I'm actually rooting for her. If she can ever get out of the tabloid self-sabotage cycle and show up on a film set, these hard life experiences might make for a stellar performance -- especially if she were to play someone like Sharon Tate. Can you imagine? Genius. But no. It's just plain sad to watch roles seemingly made for Lindsay pass her by like this.

Kris Jenner Visits Wendy Williams


Kris says that Kim shouldn't give the ring back. The full interview airs today! Kris has a new book out so that's why she was on the show. Since this might be the last Kardashian post due to the potential ONTD ban, I just like to say that I think banning them is ludicrous. While they have no place in the NY Times, they have a place on a celebrity gossip blog and that's what we're here for.
