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]

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, 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]

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, 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, 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?

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]

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.
