I go out for three hours only to come back to find that ...

Ahhhhhh ... holy beam of light upon us,

Britney is divorcing KFed's nasty arse.

This announcement is well on its way to setting records over at LiveJournal's "Oh No They Didn't!" At press time, the announcement drew 87 -- count 'em -- 87 pages of comments. 4,569 individual comments.

And at press time, all entries on Popdirt.com's front page focus on Britney and Kevin.

This is rather mind-blowing. Let's make a list of other events that would make the top five Blow Your Mind moments in which you would find me jete-ing across my 7'X7' bedroom:

5. Aaron Carter heads to rehab for crystal meth abuse and/or comes out of the closet.

4. Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey declare that their separation/divorce was a publicity stunt and get back together.

3. Paris Hilton suffers major injuries in a drunk-driving incident and becomes paralyzed/loses a limb and requires major plastic surgery.

2. Lindsay Lohan dies of an STD/exhaustion/eating disorder.

1. Katie Holmes leaves Tom Cruise and reveals that baby Suri is an actress the couple hired.

Brody Jenner's apparently got a thing for the girls of reality TV -- specifically blondes from "Laguna Beach."

The "Prince of Malibu" was spotted heading into Shag last night with none other than Lauren Conrad, the well-known arch-enemy of his ex-girlfriend Kristin Cavallari. While TMZ could not confirm any romantic connection between the two, hanging out with your ex's enemy in public is still a pretty bold move. Also along for the evening was LC's "The Hills" co-star Heidi Montag.

A TMZ spy claims that Jenner was also spotted inside a nearby bar "getting close to a mysterious dirty blonde, wavy-haired girl." It's been recently reported that Brody is dating Nicole Richie, however, throughout the course of the two aforementioned incidents, Richie was nowhere in sight.

And a video!?

Another followup

This is just so wrong it's right. Page Six says:
Nick: How I Got Back at Paris

The former Backstreet Boy revealed his revenge tactic when he and his kid brother Aaron visited Page Six yesterday to promote their E! show, "House of Carters," on their way to an Us Weekly luncheon

"I'd fallen head over heels with this chick. Then, all of a sudden, three months go by and I got people telling me, 'Nick, you know what Paris is doing to you,' and I got a little upset," Carter related. "So then I just decided to fight back a little bit and started doing my own thing again. The result is I hooked up with Ashlee Simpson. When Paris came back from Australia, they talked to each other and she found out about it.

"So I brought it up to her and said, 'You know what I did, and now it's your turn. Why don't you tell me what you did.' And she goes, 'I never did anything! I never cheated on you.' I had kind of started to really like Ashlee and I was thinking about the dating stage, then, before you know it [bleep]ing bitch-face comes back."

Carter, 26, told us he has no regrets, but still has a bitter taste in his mouth about Hilton. "I got so burnt over that whole Paris [bleep] with all this swinging and switching. Whatever happened to morals and values?" asked Nick, who's now working on a highly anticipated Backstreet Boys reunion album: "We've done about half of it so far."

Meanwhile, Aaron, 19, who has a new album due in February, says his own shotgun engagement last year to Playboy Playmate Kari Ann Peniche, who'd previously dated Nick, failed because he just wasn't ready to settle down. "It was just a big mess. She was pretty upset, but I just realized I made a mistake," he said.

And it wasn't a cheap mistake. While he never got her an engagement ring, "I bought her earrings for $10,000," Aaron confided. "And I need to get 'em, back. I need to get 'em back!" Good luck with that.

As much as I adore Nick (and I just lost some of your respect, I know ... it's a loyalty thing), he really needs to stop ratting out all these long ago stories to sell his show. He's always kept things to himself and I feel like he's completely selling out by airing all his laundry now. Hopefully it's just Paris and him wanting to lash out at her in the media now that she has lost her credibility (not that she ever really had any) in the public eye. But still, Nick, there are more mature ways.

More on Nick and Aaron Carter.

[Photo courtesy of eonline.com]

Did anyone see the internet premiere of House of Carters. It was intense. Nick reveals some pretty juicy stuff about Paris, if anyone's interested. It officially premieres on E! at 9pm on Monday.

To follow-up on the Aaron Carter engagement, the two broke it off within a week when Aaron realized that Kari Ann Peniche had had relations with his older brother.

Nick and Aaron have been circulating all the major radio shows and daytime talk shows to promote House of Carters. They stopped in at Howard Stern's show yesterday and here are some things they revealed:
- Nick's first girlfriend was none other than Debra Beasley LaFave, the Florida school teacher who took part in illegal sexual activity with more than one student. They dated for a year-and-a-half or two when he was fifteen and she was fourteen before Nick's friends clued him in on the fact that she was cheating on him -- with a girl.
- Aaron still stands by the fact that Hilary Duff is his "true love," and when asked why that is, he claimed that the two lost their virginities to one another. Not sure how Hilary's going to respond to that, since she and her "people" have heavily implied that she is a virgin or has held out on boyfriend Joel Madden.
- Aaron also admits that though he and Lindsay Lohan dated, they "never took it to that level."
- Nick says he held out on Paris for two-and-a-half weeks before he was skeptical of her intentions, but she won him over after a month or two of acting sweet and domestic. Her true colors came through soon afterwards, and Nick admits that though he stayed faithful to her for the first four months, he was aware of the fact that she was cheating on him. He then went onto cheat on her, which is when the relationship unravel and they decided to call it quits.
- Aaron claims that Brooke Hogan is "the sweetest girl" he has ever met. They dated for a while and Aaron thinks they may get things started again. He was her first kiss.
- Aaron says that he's missing $5 or $6 million dollars on account of his mother.

And this isn't news, but Jessica Simpson was interested in Nick and approached Aaron about it, but Nick was dating Mandy Williford (a.k.a. Willa Ford) at the time. Aaron says, "Why do you think she married Nick Lachey? ... She just wanted a 'Nick'! She wanted this Nick but she had to settle for the 98 Degrees."

For the most part, I think they were pretty tactful, maybe except for Aaron's confession about Hilary. I don't think she'll be happy about that.

I haven't said anything about the Laguna Beach kids, but Jason Wahler's been arrested twice in the past month. He was first arrested in NY for "disorderly conduct, possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and bribery." Three weeks later (last Friday) in Los Angeles, he had an incident with a Department of Transportation officer and a tow-truck driver. He and his friend Kristen DeLuca were arrested on battery charges.

Who knew he'd be the first to go?

Here I am, bringing you the latest in post-teenybopper news.

[Photo courtesy of Kari Ann's MySpace. It's the best photo I could find of her]

So Aaron Carter has gotten engaged to one unlucky twenty-two year old woman by the name of Kari Ann Peniche. The two had sense enough in them to decide not to pull a Britney and are instead planning a real wedding. Carter, 18, proposed to his girlfriend on stage in Las Vegas last night. Peniche was named Miss United States Teen in 2003, but her title was revoked when she posed for Playboy. Here's another little tidbit: Peniche used to date Aaron's older brother Nick!

"I'm very excited about it," Peniche told United Press International. "Aaron is the most genuine person I know. He's kind, loving, and I love him so much."

I'm tired of the same ole same ole with Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan is in the spotlight so often that little she does continues to shock me. Well, maybe except for this.

According to Page Six, Lindsay joined her mother Dina for Dina's birthday celebration at Phillipe's in NYC. A spy reported that "Lindsay got a call from her mother telling her to come to the party ... Lindsay didn't want to go because her mother was drinking already, but she went anyway." When Lindsay arrived, "her mother and her four friends were into their second bottle of Cristal" and "right after the first course", Lindsay and Dina got into a huge fight. Apparently they cursed each other out before Lindsay told her mother to "Go to Hell" and abrupted left. She was seen later that night at the Calvin Klein party, where she appeared to be calm and collected.

I'd hate to be Dina Lohan's daughter.

September 6th.

So ... "Suri Cruise" was "unveiled" today. I still don't believe that that baby was brought into the world by Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. I can see Tom in the baby, but ... I'm convinced that they've hired a baby who looks like it could be their baby. I find Suri kind of freakish looking myself ... I LOVE babies, but that baby kind of scares me. I think it's the steely-blue eyes.

Who knew Katie Holmes could produce such fugliness?

But the highlight of my week thus far has been that Paris Hilton was denied access to nightclub Bungalow 8 in NYC, and stood outside crying while the paparazzi snapped away. That definitely made my day.

August 27th.

It's been a while. Since I last wrote, I got myself a fully-functional keyboard (klutz that I am, I spilled soup over my laptop's keyboard in January) and writing is now easier than ever! Anyway, the third season of Laguna Beach is now underway. What do you guys think?

I enjoy watching it just because it's so drama-ridden, but the storylines and even dialogue are hauntingly familiar. It's like listening to a Lauren and Lo dialogue come out of Kyndra and Cami's mouths. I don't think I'll be investing in the Season Three DVD set when it comes out.

Other than that, my last day of work was a week and a half ago and I got to stand in on a Jesse McCartney TEENick shoot and interview him. He's pretty much exactly how I'd expected him to be: smart, witty, funny and very real.

I've been noticing that all these High School Musical actors have been getting record deals. I watched High School Musical when it first came out and frankly, I wasn't all that impressed. Maybe it's because I'm only ... oh about seven years out of the target age group, but still. I saw Ashley Tisdale's video for "Kiss The Girl" was repulsed. She's a twenty-one year old acting like she's fifteen, and her voice is kind of annoying. Yesterday I heard Vanessa Hudgens' song for the first time, and it is a hell of a lot more tolerable. She may have one of the best voices among the girls Disney has cranked out, though that's really not saying much. And on another note, Hayden Panettiere's album is coming out soon?

It seems like the second coming of the teen pop craze. Fasten your seatbelts?

August 14th.

A quick summary of new things:

I saw Half Nelson, the newest Ryan Gosling film, when it opened on Friday here in the city. It was fantastic -- the perfect balance of cynicism and sweetness. I'm used to seeing Gosling in dark films, in disturbingly heavy roles. And then there was the unusual role he took on in The Notebook. Well in Half Nelson, his character Dan is immature, vulnerable, charming and humorous. This is the funniest role I've seen him in since his days on Mickey Mouse Club. I have nothing but praises to sing about this film. I highly recommend it. He will single-handedly bring back the bandage-to-lip trend.

I also got my hands on Paris Hilton's upcoming album Paris. I hate to admit it (I really, really do), but the critics were right. It's a genuinely good album. It's catchy, fun, sexy, cute. What it isn't, however, is a showcase of Paris' vocal abilities. (Probably because they are lacking.) I'm not telling you to go and buy it, but if you're remotely curious, have yourself a listen.

August 8th.

I forgot to mention my absolute disapproval and disappointment in Lauren's decision in The Hills' season (and likely series, from the dullness of the show) finale in my last entry. Paris or Jason, Jason or Paris? Call me the career girl with a New York state of mind, but ... hello!??? And from the looks of it, Jason could've probably afforded to have moved with her to Paris for the summer! Double-yoo-tee-eff, man. Well, I guess we won't know for sure whether Lauren chose Paris or Jason, because MTV has a pretty amazing editing team. But if it actually turned out the way it was portrayed, I have lost all respect for Ms. Conrad.

But anyway, the big news today (according to Us Weekly) is that Jason and Lauren have called it quits. She confirmed this, saying, “Yes it is true, Jason and I are no longer together, but out of respect for his privacy I am not going to discuss the details of the breakup." Friends of the former couple say that it was Lauren who did the breaking up and it was because she sick and tired of his "going out to clubs, flirting with girls, staying out late ..." Knew she should've chosen Paris!

... and I have had about enough of Lindsay Lohan and her big mouth. I can tolerate her being disarmingly honest, but she's gone past honest. I've never liked her, but she ... bugs me now. Here are some disconcerting exerpts from her interview with ELLE magazine:
"Well, [I] say things that aren't true a lot, just because it's fun. Yeah, if I was dating one person [I'd] probably tell them I was dating someone else and then I'd call my friend and be like, 'Do you mind if I say that we're dating?' I figure I'll f--- with them, because they f--- with me.'"
(That's the way to go about things, fer sher!)

"I mean, if the sex is bad, the relationship's not going anywhere. But I think I've had enough experience with dating one guy for a long time. The only one was Wilmer and apparently Jared, but Jared was so paranoid. He'd always be like, 'Don't come over if you're going to bring 15 f---ing paparazzi!' ... It's different if it's a guy who's already in the public eye. But if it's, like, a guy who's just starting out in a band, or a model ... they might get a big head. You have to think about those things."
(And how 'bout you getting a big head? Oh, your life is so hard, boo hoo.)

On girls who make it:
"Now you just have to be on a reality show. I'm an actress who appreciates movies like To Catch a Thief, Kitten With a Whip, and Niagara. And then there's these other girls -- and I'm happy for them -- who basically go to the clubs, sit in a booth near me or Kirsten Dunst, do a few rebellious things, and they get put on the covers of magazines. They're getting their own shows, and now they're doing movies. What the f---? I've had to work since I was four years old!"
(What's that about big heads again?)

On her alleged cocaine use:
"And I'm not. There you have it. It's not true. I remember my dad would always look me in the eyes and be able to tell that I was lying if I looked away for a second. A security guard taught me that too -- and he works in the CIA! So look me in the eyes. I'm not looking away. I'll talk to you for the rest of the interview like this if you want. aside from me having to eat my food [the interviewer later reveals that she consumes an artichoke and two pinot grigios]. It's not true! My mother would take me out of the business."
"I've been trying to go to Iraq with Hillary Clinton for so long. Hillary was trying to work it out, but it seemed too dangerous. I wanted to do what Marilyn Monroe did, when she went and just set up a stage and did a concert for the troops all by herself. It's so amazing seeing that one woman just going somewhere, this beautiful sex kitten, who's basically a pinup, which is what I've always aspired to be. So I tried to go there. I'm not afraid of going. My security guard is going to take me to a gun range when I get back to L.A., and I'm going to start taking shooting lessons. He says if I'm going to go there I should really know how to shoot. Yeah, I have a dark side. I go to my dark side. I watched all those videos on Charles Manson for a while."
(Um, there's so much wrong with what she's said that I don't even know where to start. I think I'll just leave it at saying that I hope she's kidding about the Charles Manson videos. Really hardcore, Linds.)

With any luck, her life will be an exact replica of Marilyn's.

August 3rd.

Hello August 2006! So the nation's been having some sort of meltdown, likely due to global warming and the like. It was 104* yesterday here in the Big Apple, and not much better today. I have a theory about NYC and why it gets so disgusting during the summer. It's called tourists and the displacement of air.

Speaking of tourists, I encountered my favorite one yet today. A British lady stopped in the middle of the street (46th and Broadway) and asked, "Where's Times Square?" And all the while, one of the five crazy screens (at least four of which should have been turned off to conserve energy) flashed, "The ball drops here!!!" while showing a crazy animation of the New Years Eve ball. "Times Square 2006."

Have you guys heard about this new internet celebrity? Her name is Bree ... and that's pretty much all we know about her. The New York Times even write a little piece about her and her video blog on YouTube. You can check it out here. I find her highly entertaining. Sort of a real-life Clarissa Explains It All.

Anyway, I am so very sick of hearing about Mel Gibson. I don't care that people have cell phone videos of him just minutes before he was arrested. I don't want to hear the stories of the girls who were photographed with him just minutes before he was arrested. I don't care that he was arrested for DUI. If I were to care about Mel Gibson in the slightest (which I still don't), it'd be that he made such slanderous statements against the Jewish. Why are ET and The Insider and their counterparts still giving Mel eight minutes every night?

I'm also sick of hearing about Christie Brinkley and her husband's affair with a nineteen-year-old. And how that nineteen-year-old is using it all in her favor.

I am interested, however, in hearing more about the stern letter Lindsay Lohan received from the production company behind her current project, Georgia Rule. And her continual partying. (Speaking of Lindsay, have you all seen lil sis Aliana in the fall JcPenney commercial? I've been meaning to point that out for ages, but my internet has been down for the past two-plus weeks.) I personally hope that she keeps calling in sick so she'll get fired and Hollywood will boycott her like the fashion industry boycotted her pal Kate Moss after the cocaine scandal last fall.

So maybe I'm a little sadistic.

Mystery Baby, Part Deux

So it seems that Suri Cruise has been spotted! The unnatural and rare occurrence took place in Telluride, Colorado, where a natural-goods store clerk said that Suri was "funny-looking." Classic.

I think MTV (or rather, a production company that typically works for MTV) is trying to recreate the mind-blowing success that was (and is, as you shall sound find out) Laguna Beach -- after the Season Three kids fail to capture our attention and graduate high school in 2007. The company is seeking high school students who watch LB and think, "That's so us." Anyway, they will be auditioning late Julyin Orlando and West Palm Beach. Just a little heads up, if it ever becomes The Next Big Thing.

[Photo courtesy of MTV.com]

So MTV has put up the goods on the cast members of Laguna Beach's third season. Check out the dish on Kyndra, Cami, Raquel, Lexie, Tessa, Breanna, Kelan, Chase and Cameron here. There's a new Season Three trailer, if you're interested. I still can't decide whether I'll watch or not. Chances are I will, but chances are it won't hold my attention.

Weezer's Rivers Cuomo says that the band may never get back together to make another album: "For the moment we are done. And I'm not certain we'll ever make a record again, unless it becomes really obvious to me that we need to do one."

The more I hear about the Nick and Aaron Carter reality show House of Carters, the more worried I get. The thirteen-year-old in me will always remain a loyal Nick/BSB fan, but this is a mistake.

And last but not least, my favorite quote of the week ... some wise words from Paris Hilton. She said of the sex-tape scandal: "That was the most horrible thing somebody could do to you. I was just very young and I really loved [Rick Salomon] and I was a stupid little girl. So I've learned a lot from my mistakes ... I've just got to take this as a lesson in life. Don't ever trust anyone again like that, move on, and just forget about it."

Mystery Baby

I couldn't help but smile when I read this on Oh No They Didn't today ... So if you haven't already heard, Mischa Barton is spending the summer in London (she's quite the world-traveler -- she spent last summer in Italy) studying the art of acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (I do believe that's what it's called). Today was the first day, and a fellow student had a sweet if not refreshing story to tell:
There were some paparazzi outside the school when we arrived in the morning (it was our first day) and she sat near me while we were waiting to go into our intro lecture as an entire group so I gave her a once over. :) She sat by herself most of the time and I actually sort of felt bad that no one was talking to her and she was just reading The Merchant of Venice all by herself so I was gonna go say Hi but then some (birds of a feather stylewise) girls (who I've met and are very nice) converged on her area and started talking to her so I didn't bother.

We share a lunch period and she and I had a brief conversation about the menu, while in line. She is very pretty in person, with lots of freckles, and way less skinny then I expected based on what I hear on ONTD and the photo's I've seen before (I saw one part of one episode of the OC so I'm not familiar with her work). She is def. thin but she appears to have a "tall girl" frame and not just a "tall super model anorexic girl" frame. She did, in fact, eat at lunch, with everyone else, in the canteen.

One guy I hung out with is in her group and he said (although he had no idea who she was) that she was nice and seemed to want to work really hard.

She stopped into the meet and greet at the RADA bar after classes for about 2 minutes and then vacated. She is *not* staying in the dorms with us :)

So... based on what I saw, she's pretty down to earth and nice. She didn't pull any diva stunts or anything. It's only been one day but I get the impression she's mostly trying to blend in. That is all :)

Can you imagine Mischa eating school lunch with everyone else!? AW!

More news on Suri Cruise's birth certificate. While one of you mentioned in the comments that Tom Cruise's birth name is not, in fact, Cruise, I've heard conflicting reports that he has had it legally changed to Cruise. Anyway, the woman who signed the certificate as a witness to Suri's birth also signed for Grier Henchy, Brooke Shields' newborn baby. Turns out Heffernan (the witness)'s license number is different on the two certificates. The Board of Registered Nursing says that the number on Grier's certificate belongs to a Dorothy Rork, while the one on Suri's belongs to a Big Fat Nobody.

Freaky deaky, huh? Well at least Brooke signed her own baby's certificate.

What's the deal?

Happy 26th Birthday to Jessica Simpson!

What is the deal with this Valderrama kid!? Even Josh Hartnett was worried about his gal Scarlett Johansson when she hung out with Wilmer recently in the Hamptons. Well, he probably has a reason to be -- Wilmer arranged a helicopter just for Scarlett to come out to his Hamptons party. Josh reportedly kept calling Scarlett to check up on her. At last, Scarlett was so fed up with the calls that she simply handed her phone over to Wilmer and said, "Talk to Josh. Tell him we're friends."
Now I don't know a thing about either guys' personalities, but I think I'd take Hartnett over Valderrama any day.

Lindsay Lohan has said in the past that she's looking to move to London because she likes a boy there. Well celebritymound.com seems to have uncovered the "boy"'s name. He is Welsh actor Rhys Ifans [the guy who played Hugh Grant's flatmate in Notting Hill, ew], who was introduced to Lindsay by none other than Kate Moss. A source told The Daily Star that "... Rhys was really the icing on the cake for Lindsay. She already loves hanging out with Kate in London ... She's celebrating the fact she can dress like a rock chick, rather than a perma-tanned Hollywood clone, and can drink and eat without worry ... Lindsay is branded a hell-raiser in the US because the legal drinking age is 21. So it's an amazing relief to be in England where things are more liberal. She loves that it's different here." Great. An even drunker, more coked out Lohan. Just what we needed. At least it's England dealing with it, and not us. [Photo courtesy of mirror.co.uk]

Something kind of funny happened to Freddie Prinze Jr. -- "I was in the Vancouver airport, and I was speaking with a young girl ... She asked if I was Freddie Prinze Jr., and I said I was. She kind of giggled, and while I was talking with her, her girlfriend ran up and took my sandwich. I did not call out after her. I didn't know what to do. I had never had anyone steal food from me before. How do you react if someone takes your sandwich? I just finished my cup of coffee and got on the plane and flew home." Is that sandwich going to turn up on eBay?

It looks like Ashlee Simpson won't be the new face of Victoria Secret's PINK line afterall. She will, however, be participating in Victoria Secret's World's Largest Pajama Party on July 19th.

And Suri Cruise's birth certificate exists. However, it wasn't filed until ten days after it was supposed to have been. A couple of suspicious things occurred along the way, though ... the person who signed as a rep of the parents certifying birth did not go into the hospital until May 4th, when Suri was born on April 18th. The signature is not legible. Similarly, the "Attendant or Certifier" who signed the certificate was not actually in the delivery room and never saw the baby. Hmm ... Knowing fans have pointed out that "Kate" is not, in fact, Katie's legal name. It's "Katherine", thus putting in question the validity of the certificate.

Just the flavor of the week ...

[Photo courtesy of ONTD]

Lindsay Lohan finally had enough with those paps following around and blew up at them the other day, as she made her way through Malibu Country Mart to her car. Later that day, she was filmed partying on a balcony in Malibu, where she also snuggled up alongside twenty-five year old Harry Morton, owner of the Pink Taco restaurant chain, then offering the paps Gatorade and beer. Watch the mayhem with your own eyes here and here.

The NY Post reports that Kelly Clarkson has gotten her own flavor of Vitamin Water under one condition -- that she lose some weight. The brand is "all about fitness and health" and deems Clarkson ... not the perfect model of fitness and health, so she's been put on a strict diet in preparation of the flavor's unveiling. Terrible.

Seems like Kristin Cavallari's hair extensions are back. Not that you really were keeping count. But she was photographed on the beach recently, look fit, as ever. Kristin was also reportedly invited to and attended Lindsay Lohan's 20th birthday party with beau Brody Jenner. Interesting.

And SPOILER ALERT. Sort of. Seems like Heidi Montag and The Hills boyfriend Jordan are no longer together. She may be seeing a guy named Beau right now, but who really knows?

Coupledom in Hollywood

That's right ... why have we not jumped on TomKat for this yet!? It's been nearly three months since baby Suri was born and we have seen n'er a photograph of her. Us Weekly points out every detail of this strange-ness for us: A source says Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have yet to show her off to fellow Scientologists John Travolta, Kelly Preston and Lisa Marie Presley. Even good pals Will and Jada Pinkett Smith supposedly have not met her, despite repeated calls to Cruise. “Every time, it’s a different excuse: He’s busy or Kate’s not feeling well,” says a source. ‘[The Smiths] think it’s so weird.”

Soon after the baby was born, photo agency WireImage approached multiple outlets (including Us) with the news that it would be offering pictures of Suri for auction. Days later, on May 11, before official bidding was even underway, the agency sent out an e-mail declaring that “the baby shoot is on hold for now. There is no additional info as to when this may happen or if it will even happen at all.”

Can we go back to the pillow theory now?

Speaking of conspiracies, here's the "truth" behind the Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie feud, according to Faded Youth: The first season of the show was a hit and soon Nicole decided she wanted a raise. Instead of consulting Paris , she went straight to producers and asked for more money. Paris was OUTRAGED that her friend "went behind her back" and asked for the same salary as hers ... She considered Nicole a traitor and tried to get her kicked off the show and replaced by her new best friend Kimberly Stewart. But producers felt Nicole was the funny one and she was essential to the show's success. That REALLY infuriated Paris. Their feud only made the show MORE popular. Interestingly enough, not long ago, Paris was seen walking out of Nicole's West Hollywood condo. A secret meeting?

Aww, are Paris and Nicole secretly getting back together? There's hope yet for Nick and Jessica!

... and speaking of Jessica, Perez Hilton is spreading rumors about there being a potential little something going on between newly single Zach Braff and Jessica Simpson. They were seen hanging out this past week in NYC, but ... come on. Just ... no.

Too much, too soon.

Everyone's been talking about Keira Knightley's snarky response to anorexia rumors. She disspelled the rumors at a recent press conference for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, following her appearance at the London premiere of the movie to which she showed up looking particularly thin. She had this to say: "[The press] said to me yesterday 'How does it feel to be called anorexic?' and I had no idea that I was ... I'm not saying there aren't people in the film industry that suffer from it, because I am sure that there are. But I'm quite sure I don't have it." [Photo courtesy of the AP]

Wonder what Lindsay Lohan did for her twentieth birthday this past Sunday? Well it just so happens that Life & Style magazine paid for the $100,000 bash in return for rights to photos of her party. A whole slew of celebs showed up to the Malibu bash, and LiLo DJ'ed alongside gal pal Samantha Ronson and Dustin Hoffman's son, Jake.

Lindsay appears on the cover of British GQ this month, in which she boasts, "I think I'm more sexual than my friends. More comfortable in my skin. I'm a sexual person -- definitely ... Women are sexy. I think a woman's body is so much more sensual than a man's. I'm not saying strip off all your clothes but there are certain photos I like people taking of me where I'm comfortable ... As long as it's tasteful and not cheap or whore-ish I mean - why not?" Ahem. She goes on to say, "I don't know if I could be monogamous. I don't want to be with just one person. Redheads are more passionate and more sensual than other girls."

By the way, her Kabbalah name is "Rose." DeWitt Bukater, right?

Who knew that Avril Lavigne and fiance Deryck Whibley were set to marry on August 26th of this year!? Well you can forget that, because they're itching to get hitched and have reportedly moved the date up. Rumor has it that Avril had her bridal shower this past Saturday.

We all know where Paris Hilton learned to do ... what she does. But boobie-flashing aside, it seems like she may have learned how to be a little racist (or just oblivious) from her momma, Kathy. Page Six reported that at a party in East Hampton on Saturday night, an excited Kathy approached Star Jones and offered her warm wishes -- and assumed the man sitting beside her was her husband, Al Reynolds. When told that she had said, "Great to see you, Al!" to NBC's Bryant Gumbel, she replied, "My poor eyes are going at the age of 44."

Looks like Lauren Conrad's never going to let Kristin Cavallari off the hook. She told the Philadelphia Inquirer that she was an obvious choice for a Laguna Beach spin-off, and made a jab at Kristin while she was at it: "If you think about it, I don't know who else they would have picked ... There were only a few main people - Talan [Torriero], who wants to, like, marry a movie star, and he's already tried, and Steven [Colletti] does, like, VJ'ing stuff for MTV, so he's already on TV, and Kristin [Cavallari] is trying to act and hook up with every star she can. They're all so involved in the Hollywood and I'm not so much. They want it to be a show about a regular person. As much as it can be." LC needs to get over it like she got over Stephen.

Lastly, Alexis Bledel and Milo Ventimiglia have broken it off after rumors of verbal abuse on his part circulated the internet. The two dated for ... a really long time.

Happy July 4th!

Sorry, sorry for not updating these past few days -- my internet has been incredibly spotty.

Everyone's on holiday mode, including the celebs, because nothing interesting's been going on. The whole Jamie Lynn Spears story may arguably be the most interesting.

Last year we heard that Jamie Lynn had big sis Britney confront one of JL's co-stars on Zoey 101, and even made the poor girl (Alexa Nikolas) cry. Well now we're hearing that Alexa's character Nicole has been written off the show -- through a bad accident. According to the NY Post, "So far Nickelodeon and the Spears have managed to keep this quiet ... Nicole is a big fan favorite and they are keeping it from the kiddies for as long as they can. But Alexa hasn't worked since the big blowup with Britney." Ouch. Even barefooted and pregnant, Britney is working her magic!

Orlando Bloom said that he and co-star Johnny Depp probably didn't make the best impression on St. Vincent's Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves. The two had no idea the PM would be at the airport to greet them and had a red wine sesh during the flight: "We just got loaded on the plane. I mean we were wasted drunk. He [Depp] loves really good red wine ... We get off the plane and they rolled out the red carpet and the Prime Minister of St Vincent was there to meet us ... Johnny stumbles over to him and hugs him ... and almost sticks his tongue down his throat, I'm, like, falling around picking up things ... Nobody told us. It was just one of those moments." Oops.

Ashlee Simpson will be the new face and body of Victoria Secret's PINK line. Annnd she's moving in with guitarist-boyfriend Braxton Olita. Now she can frolick around the house with Braxton in her PINK sweats. Know what I'm sayin'?

Last but not least, when did Lindsay Lohan's brother Michael lose that weight and get -- dare I say -- hot? Girls (and guys), he's eighteen going on nineteen, so it's alright to drool a little bit. [Photo courtesy of locationlohan.com]

Happy Independence Day, Americans!

Isn't it weird, isn't it strange?

More on that Lindsay Lohan-Harry of McFly story. He seems to be pretty furious with her for not showing up to the UK premiere of Just My Luck, just like she cancelled on the UK last summer for the premiere of Herbie Fully Loaded. Harry had this to say: "She didn't call to say she wasn't coming or give us a reason why ... It's the second time she's ignored London and people will be annoyed with her. I don't know if she still has a problem with me. I don't care really. I'm so over the whole me-and-Lindsay thing. She's an idiot." I'm glad a celebrity finally shares my sentiments. But since when did Harry Judd represent all of England!? [Photo courtesy of lohanonline.com]

I can't keep track of which men Lindsay's hooking up with week-to-week anymore. But this week, it seems to be none other than Star Wars' Hayden Christensen. Merle Ginsberg, who interviewed her for the Harper's Bazaar story, said that she was engaged in flirtatious text messaging with a "young Hollywood heartthrob" who was later revealed to be Hayden. Merle wrote in her story that He keeps staring her down and text-messaging her flirtatiously from just a few feet away. Lohan is flush. "It's hard to think right now," she says. "Sorry, but it's really distracting." She supposedly "made a beeline" for him as soon as the interview was dunzo.

E!'s Kristin recently ran into Taylor Cole and Morgan Souders of Laguna Beach's second season and got the newest dish. She and Talan were sent to Puerto Vallarta and told her to tell fans that they were late for their flight when being bombarded for autographs. And Talan's girlfriend is (for certain) Nicole of the Pussycat Dolls. Kristin said, and I quote: "Apparently, she and Talan are far more serious than people realize. I guess they've been together for quite a while, and he even went home with her for Easter! They bought a dog together and gave it a Hawaiian name Taylor couldn't pronounce. It starts with a P, she said!"

Other than that, Taylor reports that Lo and L.C. had a falling out (who hasn't had one with L.C. since the end of the second season!?) , that she and Morgan S. are the only ones who enrolled in college and are still enrolled ... and that the two of them love watching The Hills to keep up with Lauren and Jason. That's kind of sad now, isn't it?

P.S. Talan and Aaron Carter are friends. Weird?

For some reason or another, tonight's biggest news seems to be that both Jessica Simpson and Kristin Cavallari lost the role of Lucy Ewing in the film version of Dallas to Jesse McCartney's girlfriend and David Cassidy's daughter, Katie Cassidy. [Photo courtesy of Yahoo! Movies]

According to TMZ.com, Ashlee Simpson turned down a $4 million offer to pose for Playboy. Yay?

Lindsay Lohan flew her fashion stylist from Los Angeles to New York City and paid for the flight, the hotel and everything, but Lindsay decided to extend her stay. But Nate Newell, the stylist, had had enough -- he couldn't take her constant partying any longer and flew back him with the financial aid of his friends. Lindsay supposedly texted her friends saying that "[Nate] is dead to me." She also reportedly asked for a reimbursement for the expenses.

Apparently Lohan has crossed the line at last.

For a certain friend of mine, Josh Groban and longtime girlfriend January Jones have split for the meantime (or are "taking a break", to be exact), but his rep says "They remain friends."

Hilary Duff stirred up some controversy last week when her interview with ELLE magazine offended the Washington Post because she'd called boyfriend Joel Madden's hometown "pretty ghetto." She clears her name -- somewhat -- by clarifying on her AOL blog: "I want to set the record straight. I have never called Waldorf 'ghetto.' If a journalist has printed that, they might have me relaying a story Joel told me about when he moved to Baltimore when he was 18 and had no money. The place he was living was pretty ghetto. The journalist must have found out where Joel spent his childhood and took my words out of context. I didn't say Waldorf was 'ghetto.' The place he moved to in Baltimore was. Joel loves where he grew up, and is taking me there in a month to show me around and he only has great things to say about his home town and the nice people." Nice save, Hil.

And in the current issue of Seventeen, Lauren Conrad says that she "didn't even like dating until [she] met Jason." She really makes Jason Wahler look like a sweetheart: "... when I get mad, I kind of just don't talk. And he's more of a talk-about-your-feelings guy, so he'll sit me down. It's really funny, 'cause he' be like, 'Okay, what's bothering you? What can we do to fix it?' So he's helping me a lot. It's better to process problems and then let them go." According to Lauren, he's her shopping buddy too: "He's so good about it ... Jason actualy helps pick stuff, like, 'This would look really nice on you.' or if I try on a dress and I'm like, 'I'm getting it!' he's like, 'Put it back -- you'll never wear that.'" And he bought her a dress that she really liked that he told her not to buy, for Easter. Wow, what happened to J Wahl, and where can I get one?

The Pop World has resurrected itself. Hallelujah!

Stars are blind

Okay interesting news is sparse tonight ... so please bear with me.

Star Jones Reynolds, according to Access Hollywood, is set to announce her departure from The View this week. I can't wait!

Twenty-three year-old Ryan Cabrera was spotted recently with seventeen-year-old Lisa Marie Presley's model daughter Riley Keough at Disneyland on Sunday. [Photo courtesy of ONTD]

Pharrel wants to record a duet with Emma Watson!? What??? The two met at the O2 Wireless Festival where he told her he's her number one fan. Weird ...

Lauren Conrad introduced the All-American Rejects at an American Eagle Outfitters "party" last Saturday. You can see the video here.

Just a random video of Paris Hilton shaking her lil groove thang to her song "Stars Are Blind." She's such a little white girl ...

Celebs spill

Kevin Richardson of the Backstreet Boys has decided to leave the group, at the ripe old age of thirty-three. (Or thirty-four, since his birth year is constantly being questioned, but whatever.) The Backstreet Boys released this statement:
Earlier this year, after much soul searching, Kevin Richardson came to us and told us that he had decided to leave the group and pursue other interests. He gave his blessing to continue the music without him.
We have no intention of replacing Kevin, and the door will always be open for him to return to the Backstreet Boys. We wish him the all the best in his future endeavors.
This weekend we are returning to the studio to begin the follow-up to Never Gone, and will see you later this year with a new album.

And like every good musical artist, Kevin has a MySpace of his own, on which he wrote:
Hey everybody, sorry it has been so long since I've updated you. I've been very busy. I know there are alot of rumors floating around about my status with BSB. After thirteen years of what can only be described as a dream come true, I have decided to leave the Backstreet Boys. It was a very tough decision for me but one that was necessary in order for me to move on with the next chapter of my life. Howard, Brian, Alex, and Nick will always be my little brothers and will continue to have my utmost love and support. I want to thank you all for the beautiful memories we have shared together and look forward to including you in the next phase of my life. I wish my brothers continued success and look forward to their new album. Peace and love, Kevin Richardson

As a painfully loyal Backstreet Boys fan, I am shocked but ... not all that surprised.

British boy band McFly, who appears in Just My Luck with Lindsay Lohan is dishing about her. It was rumored while the film was in production that Lohan had had a fling with McFly's Harry. Now Harry is stepping up and airing his laundry: "It's weird ... I've spent a year denying it, but now I'm supplying it: I did spend the night with her. She still isn't admitting it. She said in one magazine interview, 'I didn't touch him, but my friend did.'" Danny of McFly said that "There was so much sexual tension ... She is so fit and she has a very scary presence, a real star aura about her. I don't think she ever became approachable. No one wanted to look stupid in front of her, so we all stopped making immature jokes. Of course, I wanted to get off with her. And I thought she fancied me at first. She invited us all out for a meal with her family. And she asked for my phone number." [Photo courtesy of popjustice.co.uk]

Well who cares about Danny, really. Harry went on to say that "We sat together during the meal and she chatted to me about [a] girl I'd been out with. She asked if I'd ever been out with an older woman, and I said I'd once dated a 30-year-old. After the meal we all went on to a club in a limo. She said, 'Harry, you're sitting next to me.' Later she introduced me to a few people as her boyfriend. Then she said, 'Kiss me.' I was really nervous, I can tell you, because she's so super successful and talented. I thought, 'This is awesome.' Then she invited me back to her hotel: I left at eight the next morning." A couple nights later, they bumped into each other at a party: "I was chatting to Jude Law and Sean Penn. Lindsay ignored me a evening. Then, at the end of the night, she asked me to go back to her hote again. I said I was tired and declined. The last time I saw her was at the Hollywood premiere of the film. She gave me a kiss on the cheek; we exchanged a few words."

Hmm. If Lindsay stopped introducing random guys as boyfriends, maybe she wouldn't be in the tabloids for her various relationships as much. She also has bad taste ... everyone knows Doug's the cute one ...

More UK news ... Jesse Metcalfe's current girlfriend, butterface Nadine Coyle of UK girl group Girls Aloud is thinking of quitting the band and moving to Los Angeles to be with her boy toy. "I am head-over-heels in love with him ... I won't let this moment go. I have to follow my heart." Wonderful. Just what I wanted to hear. [Photo courtesy of ONTD]

... Annnd Perez Hilton had a run-in with the scary Lohan Mom, Dina: One night, Lindsay Lohan's mother was like, "don't you write sh*t about me. I'm friends with Tommy Mottola!" I'm like, "Whoooaaa! you're friends with Tommy Mottola! Oh mah gawd!" So, I just loved that she said that. You know, like, "oOoo, I've got mafia connections". And that's what she was saying. Like, Tommy Mottola is a loser. His label is a failure. Casablanca - like, Lindsay's on there. Yeah, you notice how I never talk about her album. I talk about Paris' album cause I've heard the whole thing and it's actually really good. I don't think I've ever mentioned Lindsay and her music. It's kind of crappy. Or maybe because Paris Hilton is dumb enough to kiss your ass. But if it's true, Dina needs to get her head out of high school. Not surprised Lindsay turned out the way she did.

Save the Celebs!

So we've heard about the girl who begged people to donate to her "cause" -- her cause being ... being in a deepload of credit card debt. Well now your favorite Saturday-morning nerd, Dustin "Screech Powers" Diamond is calling out for help. He wants you to help him save his house. It's a pretty nifty site for someone who is near-homeless ...

P. Diddy and his people are complaining about Lindsay Lohan and her rude behavior at Butter last Friday. According to thesuperficial.com, she left her seat to argue with Paris Hilton over Starchos Niarchos and upon returning to her seat, found that Diddy and Company had allowed themselves to share with Lindz. A witness said that "There were only like six tables ... Everyone was sharing, but Lindsay refused and began mixing it up with Puffy. His bodyguards came over and picked Lindsay up to get her out." Diddy's people admitted that "Lindsay was being so loud and obnoxious. His security became concerned and came over to escort her away."

Good for her.

While flying over Germany, Paris Hilton made her helicopter pilot stop so she could go pee. Britain's More magazine reported that "She gave the farmer a bit of a shock. Her bouncers even blocked the farm door so the family couldn't go inside their own house while she was using the loo." The magazine went on to say that The 'House of Wax' star then allegedly spent another ten minutes on the startled farmer's porch, so she could smoke a cigarette. The unnamed farmer said: "She was cold as a fish, and cursed about the weather."

Pregnancy rumors abound: recent photos show Reese Witherspoon and Nicky Hilton sporting hefty bumps. Or is it that they had a little too much to eat the night before? [Photo of Nicky Hilton courtesy of ONTD]

And Justin Timberlake dumped Cameron Diaz after a weekend with the boys in Vegas -- when Cameron "went chasing after him. She was just too clingy." Justin, do the right thing. Save Britney!

What's the deal with this pop life and when's it gonna fade out?

Seems like 2006 is the year for the comeback of pop music. Here's the line-up:
Christina Aguilera's newest single, "Ain't No Other Man" has already been tearing up the charts, and her album "Back to Basics" is set to hit record stores on August 15th.
Jessica Simpson's new album is due out sometime in August, but his first single, "A Public Affair" has not hit radio yet.
Justin Timberlake's new album, as I reported yesterday, will be released on September 12th. His first single off of the album, "SexyBack" goes to radio July 7th.
Even JC Chasez (of *N Sync fame, if you've forgotten) is making a second attempt at a solo career. His first single, "Until Yesterday" is expected to be released to radio in August, with his album following in the fall.

Us Weekly is reporting that Mandy Moore and Zach Braff are dunzo ... An insider said that "There was no drama. They were ready ... Mandy was very young when they got together and she wanted to see what's out there, now that she's a woman." And as for Zach, he "was mature and realized it was time to let her do that." The couple was together for a year and a half. Mandy Moore responded on her official site by saying "I am so overwhelmed by the absurdity of rumors and how on earth they could possibly get started ... I am so saddened that people stretch as far as they do in attempting to spread gossip that, at the end of the day, is just downright hurtful. I know rumors and falsities will continue to exist and its the world we live in...but c'mon people.. If you're gonna spread trash and gossip, there should be a line drawn on issues that you just don't go near!" Hmm ... wonder how it's hurtful. Does she enjoy being portrayed as a indifferent bitch? [Photo courtesy of ONTD]

Keira Knightley prefers British men to American men: "U.K. guys – well, the ones that I know – don't take as much stock in their appearance ... Ask an American guy what his beauty regime is, and he'll tell you. Ask a Brit, and he'll say, 'Er … Guinness?' I like that." I wonder how many American guys she really knows.

And according to OverheardinNY.com, Lindsay Lohan was overheard saying to a production assistant, "Oh my God! Don't talk to me like I'm some kind of normal person." Maybe that's her way of admitting she's actually an alien?

PimplyBack, FutureBomb/DiscordantSounds

I think the funniest news today is that Justin Timberlake's new album is said to be titled "FutureSex/LoveSounds" and his first single off of the album is titled "SexyBack." I don't think I'm going to ever let him live that one down, but then again, I don't think I ever have, simply for being a member of *N Sync.

Lindsay Lohan news, as ever. Page Six revealed that her bodyguards regularly ask "young ladies" to find somewhere else to sit because Lindsay's afraid of being overshadowed by prettier, younger things. Oy oy oy. Just nineteen and already feeling old ... that's Hollywood for ya.

Similarly, MSN is saying that Lindsay may be doing a duet with Madonna, of all people. They became fast friends over their Kabbalah faith and are even planning a trip to Israel together after Madonna's tour ends. A source said, "They're helping each other. Madonna is giving Lindsay advice on her music career and Lindsay wants to work on film with Madonna."

Perez Hilton reports that Paris Hilton has a thing for hockey players. According to him, she was spotted getting cozy lately with Jose Theodore of the Colorado Avalanche. [Photo courtesy of ONTD]

More on Kristin Cavallari's new hairstyle (not that anyone cares!): "I wanted a new look for the summer," she told Life & Style. Jonathan Hanousek, who created Kristin's new 'style, said that "We went shorter than we initially planned. She said that if she didn't like it, we'd just throw in a few extensions ... It's much more sophisticated than her long California surfer-girl hair. People are going to see her in a different light now." I'm not so sure about that. He added that "She's not afraid to take risks."

Dr-ah-maaa ...

So apparently I missed out on the time when Lindsay Lohan told Interview magazine that she was looking to move to London to be with "a musician named Jamie." Well, in any case, it seems like it won't be happening soon: she was seen spotted with Jared Leto on June 1st in L.A. and with Colin Farrell the next night. One friend told In Touch that "She really wants to date Colin," while another said, "Lindsay's not serious with anyone. She's with someone new every day." I'll believe the second comment.

And while Brandon Davis formally made up with LiLo by taking her out to dinner at Koi, she and Paris Hilton haven't exacty made up. An "insider" said that "Paris doesn't like her." That's really too bad. But you know I'd pay to see the two head to head.

Apparently Kristin Cavallari was on E! News talking about having taken out her extensions and cutting her hair. She also mentioned two new film role offers, neither of which she can talk about yet. Looks like K. Cav may just survive past her fifteen minutes after all ...

The film Stephen Colletti is working on that I mentioned last week is titled Normal Adolescent Behavior and is currently filming on Rhode Island. This is one with Amber Tamblyn. [Photo courtesy of The Real O.C. boards]

Click here for a video of Jason Wahler and Heidi Montag of The Hills, chilling and, er, getting cosy, outside of L.A. nightclub Shag.

If you ever wondered what some of the "insides" of Laguna Beach High School looked like, here's a photo of LC's little sister Breanna Conrad and a friend on the last day of school for the year.

Lauren Conrad told TV Guide that Stephen and Dieter, along with Talan were all at the Teen Vogue party at which she was supposed to guard the precious pillows. She made big bucks meeting all her fans and signing autographs: "For a while, we did appearances where you sign autographs for a couple of hours and that pays really well. I saved up from doing stuff like that." And she adds fuel to the Kristin fire by saying that "She, like, lies in interviews, but other than that.... [Laughs] We just don't like each other." So I guess Kristin lied when she extended an olive branch to Lauren too, huh? Boo.

And according to Lauren, who also spoke to Us Weekly, dating outside of the Laguna bubble just doesn't work: "Our friends from Laguna who try to date people outside it, it doesn't really work. Jason and I really understand each other." Hmm. Does this mean that I shouldn't give up hope on Stephen and Kristin?

Friday, June 16, 2006


Double-yoo-tee-eff. Lindsay Lohan is crowding my city and polluting my air. Not only that, but rumors have it that her newest victim is none other than Tristan and Isolde sex object James Franco. No no no no no. You'd think he'd know better. I hope it's not true.

So, yar, the funny but big news is that Brandon Davis has checked himself into rehab for alcohol and cocaine abuse. A friend told In Touch that Brandon "can't believe those words [towards Lindsay Lohan] came out of his mouth and realized it was the drugs talking." Nuh uh. I totally believe he knew what was coming out of his mouth. However, just hours before he checked himself in, he was seen walking around Los Angeles in a "Team Fire Crotch" shirt. Awesome. He is rehabbing at Passages in Malibu, CA if anyone cares enough to sendgifts*stalk* him. [Photo courtesy of ONTD]

Alex Murrel's, better known as "Alex M" to Laguna Beach fans, official website just went up and is featuring clips of two songs titled "Best Friend" (her first single) and "Come True."

Who knew Joshua Jackson was dating ex-model Diane Kruger!?

Megan Fox, Brian Austin Green's girlfriend (although questionable at this point) Lindsay Lohan's Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen co-star and sometime-bitch, admitted again that she and Lohan did not get along during the shoot in 2003: "No, we didn't get along. I'm not going to lie and bullshit you. We didn't get along. We weren't best friends. At the same time, I was seventeen and she was sixteen ... (Pause) But I really don't want to say too much about it." I love it.

Don't assume that just because Hilary Duff is legal and dating twenty-seven year-old Joel Madden that, well ... "It's harder having a boyfriend who's older because people just assume. But [virginity] is definitely something I like about myself. It doesn't mean I haven't thought about sex, because everyone I know has had it and you want to fit in."

Moving on

Trying to get back into the swing of things, so updates may not be consistent for a little while ...

[Photo courtesy of PerezHilton.com]

Nick Lachey and MTV VJ Vanessa Minnillo have been photographed getting cosy this past weekend in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Ooh la la.

Orlando Bloom was seen "snacking" on Claire Danes' neck at a party in England on Saturday night. A witness said that "He was kissing her neck and grinding against her ... He didn't seem to care who saw it." Whoa whoa whoa. Poor Kate Bosworth ...

Not particularly big news (and kind of old), but Kristin Cavallari has chopped off her long locks after she flirted with the new look. But now her hair is shorter-than-we've-ever-seen, coming in a few inches above her shoulders. [Photo courtesy of ONTD]

Another cast quote on the legitimacy of Laguna Beach: The Real O.C. -- this time it's from Stephen Colletti: "The basic story is true, the relationships did happen, but the paths you see them take on the show aren't the exact paths they take." Other news on Stephen: he's been added to the MTV VJ line-up this summer, and he seems to have a role in a film in which Amber Tamblyn is also in. Hmm ...

Monday, June 12, 2006


Hey everyone ... sorry for the delay, but I'm still trying to get over my jet lag in addition to working 9-5. But I should have the time and energy to update by the end of this week.

True or False?

A couple of weeks or so ago, I reported that Evan Rachel Wood and Ed Norton were seen canoodling around New York City together. Well, guess that's gone up in flames, because Evan publicly announced that she is with Billy Elliott star, Jamie Bell: "I think it's obvious [that we're dating], so I'm not really going to say anything ... We've made a public appearance together so that's why it's obvious. It's kind of pointless to deny it ... I think Jamie is awesome. And it's even better when you know him because he's just a completely different person on screen." The two met while filming Green Day's video for "Wake Me Up When September Ends." [Photo courtesy of Yahoo! Movies]

Lionel Richie has been telling people that daughter Nicole and Adam Goldberg are set to marry again -- and he'll be providing the entertainment. But rumor has it they recently split. Who's telling the truth?

If anyone has a clue who Courtney Peldon is, I have some strange, strange news for you. She confirmed at the premiere of HBO documentary Dealing in Dogs that she is engaged to Crispin Glover. Erf!?

A pedestrian caught Brandon Davis outside Hyde in Hollywood and had some choice words for Brandon regarding Lindsay Lohan, though she called her a "stupid little girl." You can watch the video (and Brandon's reaction to it) here. I love the ridiculous "glare" he gives her, although it wasn't the most mature thing she could've done.

The teaser trailer for Talan Torriero's film debut Driftwood can be found here. It looks ... er, crappy. Or, at the very least, poorly edited.

The National Enquirer is saying that Kristin Cavallari has been bad-mouthing Jessica Simpson. A "friend" of hers told the tabloid that Kristin thinks Jessica Simpson is pathetic and delusional because she is wearing her wedding ring on her necklace and that Jessica should move on because Nick is "soooo over Jessica." Patrons in a restaurant overheard Kris trash-talking when she was more than a little loud at dindin with the mother. She was overheard calling Jessica a terrible actress. I wouldn't be surprised if this were true, but let's hope not.

Lauren Conrad appeared on Last Call With Carson Daly on May 19th, but you can catch it here if you missed it. She previews a clip from her upcoming show, The Hills. Similarly, she will be a guest on MTV's TRL on May 31st, the day The Hills premieres. Check your local listings for precise times.

Lastly, if you feel like vegging out in front of the television this weekend, you have a perfect excuse -- a fourteen hour marathon of Laguna Beach! On Saturday, the 27th, you can relive all the drama on MTV, starting at 8am. Eastern time, I'd assume, but again, check your local listings. And enjoy.

Updates will be spotty, if at all existent, between now and mid-June. Finals and a bit of traveling before I return to the good ole US of A, you see. Enjoy the premiere of The Hills -- I'm going to have SO much to catch up on when I return!

... and now The Real Real O.C.

Massive Laguna Beach update.

Lauren Conrad describes to People magazine the differences between Laguna Beach and The Hills: "On Laguna, the girls would fight with their boyfriends ... Now we fight with out bosses. The drama on this show is real problems, like, [am I] going to get fired." She adds that "I'm not very good at paying bills ... I always like, forget, and they just keep adding up." "When [Laguna Beach] ended, it was kind of like, weird, going back to no cameras ... it's sort of normal for me." Apparently, "[Jason Wahler and Lauren are] pretty serious now ... He recently moved into my apartment. We used to go out a lot, but we don't really anymore. We're homebodies -- we watch movies on the couch." Hmm. Does that mean Heidi Montag's out of her apartment? Aww ... And she's still giving Kristin Cavallari the cold shoulder, despite KCav's many peace offerings through the press: "Kristin and I have been to the same events, but we don't necessarily say hi ... She's getting what she wanted [attention]. I don't want to be in [magazines] every week, going to clubs. I just want to be in the fashion industry and I want to find a job that I really like." [Photo courtesy of The Real O.C. boards]

Lauren tells M magazine that "You'll see me...working! I'll be working at a magazine while going to school. There'll be more drama, but it won't be just a rumor being spread about me. Now it will be a big assignment at work and a final exam in the same week." Finally. A glimpse into the academic lives of our favorite beach bums. That will make me college students across the nation feel a helluva lot better. I know I will.

Babyfaced Stephen Colletti reveals that he wasn't always such a stud-muffin: "I was in the sixth grade, and I went to science camp one summer. We were doing science tests at the river, and I walked over to this girl and sat down beside her. I had a banana, and she had two banana peels next to her. I just wanted to talk to her, so my pick-up line was, 'You like bananas, too!' Things were good, but when we got back from the trip, I found out that she had a boyfriend. So she denied me!" Ouch. Science camp!? Explains the socks-with-shorts thing.

Alex Murrel gave M magazine the "scoop" on her new album: "It's all about the cycle of love. 'Best Friend is my first single, and it's about having a guy friend, and then having feelings for him. But you don't want to ruin the friendship. It's not about anyone from Laguna Beach, but it's definitely happened to me before!"

Here's a video of Kristin and a friend having a good time at a Lakers game.

In other news, Ashlee Simpson is a witty little one. Star reports that when her boyfriend Braxton Olita left her to use the men's room at a recent Dodgers game, she found herself bombarded with questions such as, "Why did your sister Jessica dump Nick?" ... "Did she cheat on him?" She called security, who arrived just as Braxton returned with a bag of peanuts. She declined his offer for the savory snack, saying, "No thanks. I've had all the nuts I need for one night!"

Lindsay Lohan can't seem to decide which Greek shipping heir (and Paris Hilton leftover) she wants -- Paris Latsis or Stavros Niarchos. I guess she really wanted her revenge on Hilton, because she was spotted with Nacho Man at New York City's Butter on Monday night, where they openly "kissed and held hands". A spy told The Daily News that "Lindsay went back with him that night to his hotel room ... He was staying at Soho House, but her room was crosstown at the Mercer."

And lastly, hopefully to tie loose strings together, Mischa Barton did an interview with Newsweek, putting rumors to rest. "It was the producers' [idea to kill Marissa off]. But I really think it's best to do movies now. I was also thinking of spending a month in London, living there and taking a course in acting." When the journalist commented that her voice was deeper than it seemed on television, she said, "I have a general transatlantic accent, I suppose. I'm nothing like my character. Are you kidding? I was born in London, raised in New York. She's crazy. I don't understand how anybody could be like her." Uh ... that doesn't even begin to make sense or correlate directly to his comment, but okay. Lastly, she hopes that Marissa won't be coming back in any otherworldly dream sequences: "That would be cheesy ... I was really excited that I get to die, to be honest. I've done pretty much everything else with the character. It was better than one of those lame farewells."

The Real O.C.

[Photo courtesy of teenangel87 on YouTube]

So now that the finale's aired and Marissa Cooper's death has been made known pretty much to every corner of Cyberspace, the backlash and speculation have begun.

Did Mischa Barton want off The O.C. or not? The show's creator, Josh Schwartz "revealed" in an interview with TV Guide following Thursday's show that "We didn't have a strained relationship. Mischa's never exhibited any kind of vindictive behavior before, so it would seem out of character. But I don't really know ... No, she never said that [she wanted to leave the show]. She was always 100 percent professional and ready to go and ready to work for the show and support the show. She was never misbehaving or "sicking out" or any of those kinds of rumors that were out there."

The real reason Marissa had to go, according to Josh, is "if you go back to the pilot episode of the show, tragedy is in the DNA of Marissa's character. When you first see her in the pilot, she's passed out drunk in the driveway of her house. Her dad's losing all of his money, and her boyfriend is cheating on her. This is a girl who attracted that kind of tragedy. And Ryan and Marissa, while they had some good times, were never really a happily ever-after couple. They were always the star-crossed lovers. So as we looked down the barrel at the end of the season, it just felt like that's where the show was pushing us. The show kind of paints you in a certain direction. And it was the kind of thing that will drive us into next season as the kind of cataclysmic event that will force some people to leave and some people will not be able to leave. It has a huge effect in terms of how it drives into next season."

And according to another source, the five different endings involved several different deaths to several different characters. If what Josh is saying is true (and, conversely, the rumor that different deaths were filmed), how did Mischa know Marissa was the one to die? I doubt that different characters' deaths were filmed, especially since when asked about how Mischa took the news of Marissa's death, Josh said: "She took it in stride. She handled it professionally and continued to do great work. However she felt about it personally, she was never anything but a professional when she was on set." I think Josh is just being sweet and diplomatic about the whole thing. It's pretty unwise to kill off one of the main characters of the show unless circumstances are especially extenuating. Regardless, Marissa's dead now (unless the fan uprising causes the show to reconsider the storyline and has her rise from the dead sort of à la Trey). Then again, the official episode guide sums up the conclusion of the episode with: "The car explodes and Ryan lays Marissa down on the pavement and rouses her. He tells her he’s going to get help, but she begs him to stay. And then she dies." Sweet.

But Josh is a little unhappy about one thing -- Mischa's revelation of the secret ending to Access Hollywood, which was aired the night of the season finale: "It was unfortunate," he said. "I don't really know what happened. It was definitely unfortunate, and I don't think Access Hollywood really handled it that well either."

IMDB reports that O.C. fans are no happier at Mischa. Oh well, seems like she had the last laugh.

Stupid Girls

Hmm. Somehow I managed to watch the season finale of The O.C. and was kind of disappointed with the anti-climaticness of the ending. That shot of the car on its back was a second too long and the death wasn't very convincing. Granted it was inevitable that she was going to die, Ryan could've easily stepped on the brakes really suddenly, and Volchok would've -- could've -- tumbled down the mountainside himself. Too bad. Still, I got a little more than teary-eyed knowing that she won't be back next season.

Laguna Beach's Casey Reinart has a part in Head Automatica's video for "Graduation Day." Lauren Conrad makes the cover of the very magazine she interned for -- Teen Vogue. Apparently, Kristin Cavallari has her eye on Stavros Niarchos. Star reports that her friends have said that “Kristin would die if she were photographed with someone who’s not famous, rich or hot!” Too bad Lindsay Lohan was seen snogging him at Bungalow 8 last night/early this morning.

Angel Carter announced on her and Alex Murrel's CoSpace (ha, new word I made up) that Alex's album is to release on August 30th, and her single "Best Friend" goes to radio in three weeks.

That is all. I feel sick. Don't ever attempt to bake Chewy Brownies if it calls for 1/2 part sugar, 1/3 butter and 1/6 part flour. That's my tip of the day.

Hollywood Biatches

Sorry for the blip on the updating map last night. It's finals period. So trust me, I feel your pain -- and then some.

Anyway, here are some juicy bits of gossip (Paul McCartney marriage troubles aside. Because I'm not sure we care that much about Paul McCartney, as big a deal as my mom thought it was when she shouted into the phone today that he and Heather were calling it quits) ...

Paris Hilton made an official statement to her favorite whore, Perez Hilton, about the whole calling Lindsay Lohan a "fire crotch" thing: "The only thing I want to underscore is the person making the statements was not Paris Hilton," her PR said. "It is unfair to characterize Brandon [Davis]'s statements as being reflective of Paris' feelings about Lindsay. We're dealing with two different people. It was Brandon who was speaking, of course there are moments when Paris was laughing, but she never said anything. Brandon was speaking for himself not for her. Personally," he adds, "I found the incident unnecessary." [Photo courtesy of ONTD]

But what about Paris' whispering into Brandon's ear, followed by Brandon's belligerence? And her telling him after the whole schpeal that she loved him? (Check out the newest video, where all this and more goes down, here.) "Paris uses her cell phone as a defensive tool. Many times when you see her photographed in a crowd situation, she puts it up to her ear so she doesn't have to speak. In the cacophony and din of screaming, nobody could have had a telephone conversation. Reporters were asking her questions about Lindsay that she did not want to answer, so she put her cell phone up to her ear. Brandon was not speaking for Paris. Period." Um, no. She clearly had someone on the line and wanted that person to hear what was going on. Bitch.

In watching that unfortunate (but hilarious) video -- by the way, Brandon really crossed the line when he called Lindsay poor, I think -- I came across this hilarious Blind Date-style paparazzi vid of Mischa Barton trying to hail a cab in New York City. You know it ain't easy, especially when Mischa can't even get one.

Nicole Richie and Adam Goldberg are off again, or so Star reports.

The Jessica and Nick breakup may be the best thing's that's ever happened to Nick Lachey -- other than having met Jessica, of course. His album debuted at number two on the Billboard charts.

Howard Stern made another greasy man look every greasier when he got John Stamos to spill the beans on his previous relationships. Apparently, he and Denise Richards are "really good friends and when she was going through her divorce, I was there for her." And by there for her, he means, it was "just kind of a fast thing" even though "she was going through a hard time." Nice guy. Heather Locklear? "I met her one time and we got really drunk and she asked me to go up to her room with her. But I was a kid and she was getting me plastered, we were playing quarters and by the end I couldn’t even hit the quarter on the table. So she said why don’t you come up to my room in a few minutes, I’m going to take a shower, and I was like yeah, you know, I’m going to do this. The next thing I remember, I woke up with barf all over my room and security was pounding on the door because I had to get to the show. I was in my own room, I just missed the whole thing!" Um, a kid. I think he was probably in his late twenties ... Teri Hatcher!? "I actually saw her the other night, we were at that Ryan Seacrest thing and she came out and kept trying to kiss me in front of all of the cameras." Oh, poor thing. You are just a tool in a girl's manipulative plot. But really. There were some things I really didn't know. Like the barf part.

According to a post on Oh No They Didn't!, Mischa Barton has confirmed to Access Hollywood that her character Marissa Cooper will die tonight on The O.C.. However, it seems unclear how the season will ultimately end, as creator Josh Schwartz is said to have filmed five different endings and kept his choice a secret. And lastly, Willa Holland, little sister to the soon-to-be-late Marissa, is joining the cast as a permanent fixture in Newport Beach. Yay, hotter hottie to replace hottie! Even if she is only fifteen.

And to answer my own question: Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan. It's a real toughie for me, since I dislike them for very different reasons.

Paris banks on her faux-ditziness and coos in that annoying baby voice; she's the head of the Young Hollywood cheerleading squad and thinks she has a right to be. She is not particularly attractive and not particularly talented. She has the sex appeal of a camel on bad days and a man on good ones. She seems to covet the spotlight and will step over people to stay in it -- including former best friends. It's annoying how overconfident she represents herself to be because under her chiselled features, I'm sure she has a slew of self-esteem issues. Otherwise, she wouldn't be so immature to people she doesn't like. The bottom line, though, is that for everything that she's known for, we really don't know all that much about the real Paris Hilton, and maybe that's why everyone's still so fascinated.

Lindsay, on the other hand, comes across as quite intelligent and surprisingly honest for someone in her circumstances. But for someone so acute, she sure can be dumb -- playing to Young Hollywood's high school game and giving into YH's very own mean girl, Paris. From being shut out and dissed by the likes of Paris and Nicky to sleeping with every other guy in Hollywood, it's pretty apparent that she just really wants everyone to like her. But she can be mean about it too -- she's a fiesty redhead after all, and all these years in the industry have molded her into a defensive little bitch. She namedrops a helluva lot and blurts out what she's not supposed to (can you say Karl Lagerfeld?). It's doubtless that she's talented and has her own brand of ... er, sexiness, though at times she seems a little awkward and childlike.

Damn, I made Lindsay sound better than I wanted her to. Nooo ... don't feel sorry for her! Her mom's a looney!

Er ... I guess ... Team Lindsay? I honestly look at them as two different types of celebrities and am fascinated by the two in very distinct ways. Paris I only really "like" when she displays emotion or does something surprisingly nice or surprisingly human. She's pretty much an ice queen to me on normal days. I "like" Lindsay when she does interviews, because she gets down to business and seems to really think about the questions and give honest answers. And she's pretty eloquent. But she makes far more blunders than Paris does, so she's an easier target. And that doesn't at all make me feel bad for her.

That's all. That was waaaayyy too drawn out.

Lovers and Haters

I hear many a teenybopper heart breaking. Okay, maybe not, because he was "The Little One" who looked like Mary-Kate and Ashley. But Zac Hanson ("The Little One") is set to marry longtime girlfriend Kathryn Tucker sometime next month in Atlanta, Georgia. The announcement appeared in The Tuscaloosa News, and said: Becky and Tom Tucker of Newnan, Ga., announce the engagement of their daughter Kathryn Rebecca Tucker of Newnan, to Zachary Walker Hanson of Tulsa, Okla., son of Diana and Walker Hanson of Tulsa. The wedding will be held in June in Atlanta. The bride-elect is the granddaughter of Ruth and Ira Tucker of Northport and Rozene Copas and the late Gordon Cooper of Woodville. She is a 2002 graduate of Northgate High School and attends Georgia State University, where she is pursuing a bachelor's degree in finance. The prospective groom is the grandson of the late Jane and Clyde Lawyer of Tulsa, and the ate Bea and Clarke Hanson of Tulsa. He is a member of the band Hanson and co-founder/CEO of the record label 3CG Records.

You probably didn't care, but now you know.

Sources are saying that Nicole Richie, who was photographed leaving a plastic surgeon's office on Tuesday, was on the market for a rhinoplasty. But "insiders" say that the surgeon "thought that Nicole had body dysmorphic disorder, and it's a policy that surgeons can not perform surgery on people with that disorder." Maybe she was visiting Ashlee Simpson?

In Touch is reporting that, just days after Brody Jenner was spotted canoodling with her, Kristin Cavallari is secretly dating Sean Stewart,
brother of Kim. If this is true, that's two Stewarts for two Laguna kids -- who had previously hooked up with one another. How incestuous. [Photo courtesy of lime-light.org]

Kristin made Maxim's Hot 100 list, coming in at an impressive number twenty-three. She beat out the likes of Kate Moss, Mandy Moore, Natalie Portman, Sienna Miller and, thank goodness, Paris Hilton.

Apparently Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, our two top story-makers here, got into a spat at Hyde nightclub on Friday night. TMZ says there was a lot of trash talking (what the two know how to do best). Paris' rep, Elliot Mintz, says that "Lindsay approached [Paris'] table and at that moment Paris felt she was being interrupted and didn't wish to speak to Lindsay ... A couple of words were exchanged and Lindsay went back to her table ... I can understand how other patrons in the club could have thought it had been a bigger deal than it actually was." But TMZ thinks it's because Lindsay's been namedropping and Paris didn't want Lindsay to use her name to further her career. Here's a video of the Hiltons and Brandon Davis joking about poor Ms. Lohan.

Okay, poll. Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan? And why. Go!

Just Her Luck

News travels fast. So does Lindsay Lohan. She reportedly spent last night at Paris Latsis' place in Beverly Hills. Yes, that's Latsis, not Hilton. That would make the second Hilton-ex she's been ... er, hanging out with. The two are planning to meet up at the Cannes Film Festival later this week. Last week it was that Jamie Burke dude, now Latsis? She can run all she wants from guy to guy, but she can't hide!

[Photo courtesy of PosterWire.com]

After a professional shoot for Just My Luck, the studio thought a paparazzi shot of Lindsay taken over a year ago was more appropriate. Everyone unanimously agreed that it also suited the film's tagline "Everything changed in the wink of an eye." Too bad it didn't help the movie at the box office.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Just My Luck came in at number four in this weekend's results, with "a weak $5.5 mil. Lohan has only ever starred in six movies, and 'Just My Luck' ranking last among them in the opening week, trailing the feeble $9.4 million that 'Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen' earned in 2004."

Other happenings in our little world ...

Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell gave birth to a baby girl last night in London and did not allow the father to be present.

Britney Spears has been avidly working on her next album, although her rep is hesitant to name even a tentative release date. Her (and it seems hubby K Fed's) producer, Jonathan Rotem said of the new material: it's "in the vein of [Rihanna's] 'S.O.S.' " And she raps! "Not rap rap, but talk rap," Rotem had to clarify.

Happy Mother's Day

[Photos courtesy of The Real O.C. boards]

Happy Mother's Day! Here's a photo of Kristin Cavallari and her mother, Judith, out to din din. It also looks like she and Brody Jenner are back on -- again. Will this turn into another Stephen-Kristin saga of on-and-offness? Only time will tell ... The video that corresponds to the Kristin and Brody photo can be found here.

Lauren Conrad recently visited Carson Daly on his show Last Call. The episode is said to air on May 19th, but check your local listings for the exact time. His show is a late, late one -- at least in New York it is. If you haven't seen it for yourself yet, check out the new trailer for The Hills. It looks juicy ...

More rumors are circulating that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have wed in Nambia, but their reps are denying the story. Life & Style said specifically that they "were part of a traditional Himba wedding ceremony." A source was quoted in The National Ledger as having said that the marriage wouldn't have been legal by U.S. standards, so they'd have to get married again in the U.S. anyway. Good to know.

Lindsay Lohan's mom Dina lashed out against rumors that she's a "party mom": "The first misconception people have of me, which is really funny, is that I go out with my teenage child ... It's completely untrue. We will go to dinners together and events, of course, but I don't go out with my daughter when she's going out with her college friends. It's just silly." O-tay. I believe you.

At last, Mandy Moore comments on the whole Wilmer Valderrama-Howard Stern schpeal. She tells ELLE in the current issue that she thought what Wilmer said was "utterly tacky, not even true, and it hurt my feelings because I like him ..." If you've already forgotten what was said, it went along the lines of ... hmm ... ELLE wraps it up in a nice euphemism: "she was deflowered by celebrity lothario Wilmer Valderrama." Many wonder at whether she'll ever return to singing after making a small name for herself on the big screen. Well, she wants to: "I don't know. It's depressing. Maybe it will come out this year? Maybe next? I think my label is expecting a poppier, mainstream-type thing from me. It's been so long since I was singing 'Candy' and driving in a green Beetle. But I know there's so much of, like, middle America that still thinks of me that way."

That's way harsh, Mandy. Even people in middle America go to the movies and visit the record store every once in a while ...

Okay, so this dumb story made headline news on Yahoo!: Paris Hilton, who made an appearance at the Electronic Entertainment Expo to promote her new video game "Paris Hilton's Jewel Jam," introduced it as "Diamondquest" instead. Oops. "Sorry I'm late," she said. "I'm really excited to have my new video game, 'Diamondquest.' Thank you all for coming, and you can download the game." Okay, so she's dumb. Is that all? This isn't news.

Lindsay Lohan's people are being fined for "hiring a request company ... to jack TRL for Lindsay … Guys this is a no win situation how should I respond...there is no airplay we have been pursuing…” And that is a direct quote from an alleged memo. Whoa. Universal Music Group is being fined 12 million big ones ... apparently, the same tactic was used to promote Dream way back when.

It's said that Tom Cruise didn't invite Katie's family to see baby Suri until he was back home in Los Angeles so he could "monitor the baby's first visit with her maternal grandparents." Suri was born on April 17th, and it was not until May 4 -- two and a half weeks later -- that Grandma Kathleen and Grandpa Martin got to get a glimpse of her. But guess what? All of Tom's immediate family -- mother and sisters -- were there for the delivery. Wonderful.

SPOILER ALERT. If you don't want to your season finale of The O.C. to be ruined, don't read!

According to Just Jared, the recent encoded TV Guide spoiler was decoded. A devoted fan revealed, "Your O.C. teaser last week was very clever. I think the secret words are 'Peter Callaghan', which means that Sandy is the one hovering near death. 'Peter Callaghan' was the character 'Peter Gallagher' played in my favorite movie While You Were Sleeping ..."

Hmm. That's tragic. What are they going to do with Mischa?
