Blind Item: Which Country Singer Suffers From Foot-In-Mouth Syndrome?

Happy Hump Day! Blind item time! Via Crazy Days And Nights:

This A-list female country singer just keeps on winning people over. At a recent event a paraplegic teenager in a wheelchair had been waiting with his mom for about two hours so he could meet his favorite singer and get her autograph and hopefully a picture with her. Well, after the event, the singer came by and said, “Don’t you look cute in that chair.” The teenager then asked for the singer’s autograph and she said, “Oh sorry, not today, I’m too tired, but I hope you feel better soon.” She then walked away.

Hmm, my guess is either Taylor Swift (who got flack after that whole “photographed with a guy in a swastika T-shirt” debacle) or Kellie Pickler (who is known for being on the dim side). What do you think? Keep reading »

Quotable: ScarJo On A Woman’s Strength

“…women have power in numbers. We draw strength from the support of other women. In some cultures, girls can be seen as a burden to a family because of the need to pay out a dowry when they marry … they are vulnerable to all kinds of abuse. When I visited shelters for female victims of violence in India, I found that a lot of the women had been raped, even at home. That’s still very taboo. Even in the United States, it’s hard to talk about being sexually abused by your husband or your boyfriend … being able to find solace in support groups makes a huge difference.”

“Higher” Education Found At Medical Marijuana School

I just love living in California, where with a doctor’s note for anything ranging from insomnia to cancer, you theoretically could be peacefully stoned all the time. As if colleges weren’t pot-friendly enough, now there’s a new option for “higher” learning in Detroit, which is taking steps to revive their sad economy with the new Med Grow Cannabis College. Acting as a trade school for medical marijuana caregivers, 24-year-old founder Nick Tennant modeled the college after California’s Oaksterdam University, which was the country’s first cannabis college when it opened in 2007. Besides Michigan, 12 other states have legalized medical marijuana, including Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, and Maine. The five-week Med Grow curriculum costs $475 and covers cultivation and breeding, cooking tips and recipes, and how to start a care-giving business. Oh, and there’s Cannabis History 101. Michigan care-givers are only allowed a maximum of five patients, unlike California dispensaries which can provide hundreds of patients with edibles, potent strains, oils, and extracts. Which is why graduates of Oaksterdam have more options and can become lobbyists or dispensary managers as well as care-givers. So if you’re unemployed and want to go where the money is, perhaps patting on the patchouli and planting some seeds might be the way to go? [ABC News] Keep reading »

How Do These 10 Guys Score So Much With The Ladies?

gross ladies men g1 jpg
In what kind of backwards world does a playboy dork like Zach Braff score a ravishing hottie like Liv Tyler? According to today’s Tabloid Cheat Sheet, Liv — the star of one of my most favorite coming-of-age/virginity loss movies ever, “Stealing Beauty” — has been seen canoodling with the goofy “Scrubs” star. But-but-but! I sputtered inwardly. He’s a goon! He goes through young brunette starlets like a fat kid in a candy store. Mandy Moore! Isabel Lucas! Even, maybe Natalie Portman, his “muse” for “Garden State.” Sigh. But Zach is just one of many “ladies’ men” who seem to get play from the hottest chicas in Hollywood, even though I would not give them the time of day. Keep clicking for more and let me know about any I may have missed. (For the record, I considered Adam Levine, Jared Leto, and Benicio Del Toro, but I would totes bone ALL of them.)

Just for you, we’ve carved out the best bite-sized stories from this week’s tabloids. Eat ‘em up, after the jump. Keep reading »

Tiger Beat: Golfer’s Voicemail For Mistress Leaked


Oh Tiger, you are so busted. Us Weekly has an exclusive interview with Woods’ alleged former mistress, Jaimee Grubbs, in this week’s issue, and along with it they have released a voicemail Woods left for Grubbs, begging her to cover his ass. In the voicemail (which you can hear above), Woods says:
“Hey, it’s Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favor. Can you please take your name off your phone? My wife went through my phone and may be calling you. So if you can, please take your name off that. Just have it as a number on the voicemail. You got to do this for me. Huge. Quickly. Bye.”

Quotable: Natalie Portman Will Not Be Your Muse

“I have a problem with muse-ship. I feel like throughout history, it’s been men vampiring on women’s specialness. And why do that for someone? Maybe it’s a fear of intimacy!”

Natalie Portman, star of the film, “Brothers,” in Marie Claire. But what about Zach Braff? [Marie Claire] Keep reading »
