Quickies: Kara DioGuardi Ate Six Pot Brownies At Once & Check Out Old Navy’s Gay Pride Tee Shirts!

  • Kara DioGuardi once ate six pot brownies at Paula Abdul’s house (brought by a friend of Paula’s, she claims!) and got so high she fell out of bed and had to be taken to the hospital, she told “Lopez Tonight.” Yikes. DioGuardi had some terrifying hallucinations from all that THC and needed I.V.s to help her get through them. Poor thing! [New York Daily News]
  • Jennifer Aniston might commission “a huge portrait” of her dog, Norman, who recently died. Hey, if she’s got the money to spend on it, why not? And as someone who recently lost a family dog, I can understand the sentiment. [Gossip Cop]
  • California’s Attorney General will investigate whether Arnold Schwarzenegger misused state funds on his mistress(es). Let’s hope not. [PopEater]
  • There will be a new HGTV show called “Our Yard Went Disney,” about people who make their backyards look like Disney themeparks, and it looks terrifying. [The Mary Sue]

Today’s Lady News: MSNBC Suspends Commentator One Week Without Pay For “Slut” Comments

  • MSNBC’s Ed Schultz was suspended for one week for calling talk radio host Laura Ingraham a “slut” twice on air. Sigh. There are many ways to call out Ingraham for her backwards politics. Calling her a slut shouldn’t be one of them. [The Wrap]
  • How much good did Oprah Winfrey do in her 25 years on air? While she did raise awareness about domestic violence, gay rights, eating disorders, and AIDS, she also devoted a hell of a lot of time shilling products that would make us fabulous and talking about weight loss. [Women In Media & News]
  • A Texas judge plans to void the marriage of a transgender woman, whose firefighter husband died last year on the job, so she cannot access his death benefits. The widow was born a man and because Texas does not recognize same-sex marriage, her husband’s family does not think she’s entitled to the money. Ugh, do any of these people have a heart? [Newser]

Dominique Strauss-Kahn May Argue Maid He Allegedly Sexually Assaulted Is A Prostitute

Warning: the following blog post will make you stabby. Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the ex-chief of the International Monetary Fund who is accused of sexually assaulting a New York City hotel maid, may argue in court that the victim was a prostitute who threatened to blackmail him. The Sun reports that Strauss-Kahn’s defense team will claim the maid “seduced” him and then demanded cash for sex. The defense may also argue that Strauss-Kahn’s semen found on the maid’s clothes indicate what went down was consensual, not a sexual assault (although that logic makes no sense to me).

Courtney Love Is A “Junkie Auntie Mame” For Actresses On Drugs

“I still can’t escape the stigma [of a drug addict] for some reason. Even people like Kelly Osbourne feel free to f**k with me. A few nights ago, when she appeared on ‘Fashion Police with Joan Rivers,’ the bitch called me a crackhead. … This is a girl whose life I have saved twice, once with C.P.R. and another time with C.P.R. and violence — by which I mean I had to poke her furiously in certain places to wake her up from her coma. …She’s been sober for how long? Less than a year? Good for her! But it wasn’t that long ago when Kim Stewart was screaming, ‘Courtney, what are we going to do? Kelly Osbourne is blue on the floor!’ Kelly wasn’t doing that well back then. For some reason, Kim Stewart also called me when Paris Hilton got pulled over for her last D.U.I. And Lindsay Lohan called me after she was arrested. The judge presiding over her case was the same judge who presided over mine. He was a very sweet man. I think he was an ex-alcoholic himself. I told Lindsay to just get it together and trust the judge, and Lindsay’s father called me for advice every day. I’m not even that friendly with these girls. What am I, a junkie Auntie Mame?”

—Oh. My. God. This Courtney Love interview on The Fix, Salon.com’s new blog about addiction and recovery, is EPIC. There’s about 16 more excerpts that are priceless, including lots of Hollywood gossip about the drugs she’s done with Winona Ryder, Sting, and Andy Dick. And she talks some crazy smack about Kim Gordon, whom she calls a “cocktease” who was obsessed with Kurt Cobain. Yikes. Worth a read, definitely. [The Fix]

More from Courtney about that Kim/Kelly incident after the jump. Keep reading »

Two NYPD Officers Acquitted Of Raping Drunk Woman

Two New York Police Department officers were acquitted by a jury for the alleged rape of a drunk woman inside her Lower East Side apartment. One cop was accused of raping her while his partner napped. The jury found officers Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata guilty of official misconduct for going into the woman’s apartment four times over the course of the night—but not guilty of rape, burglary and falsifying business records.

I don’t even know what to say. Keep reading »

We All Scream For (Cold!) Ice Cream

Jamie Oliver might not approve of noshing ice cream straight from the pint. Then again, Aunt Flo never visits Jamie once a month, does she? With the summer months fast approaching, a girl’s got to do her best to keep Cherry Garcia from melting into a drippy, sticky mess. But this ingenious ice cream pint chiller will keep your cold carton encased in aluminum while you stuff your face — and save you the trouble of washing an extra bowl. It’s perfect for those nights when ice cream won’t last outside the freezer longer than Britney’s Vegas marriage. (Tampons and “The Notebook” DVD sold separately.)

5 Celebs Who Tied The Knot In Weird Wedding Attire

weird wedding miranda lambert jpg
As if Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton‘s recent nuptials could get any cuter, I just noticed Miranda decked out her bridesmaids in cowboy boots. Yes, cowboy boots! The Old Gringo cowboy boots Lambert’s pals wore run $400 to $600 a pair, so you’ve got to be a deep-pocketed cowgirl to go this route. Also, you can probably only get away with doing this if you’re a Southerner. But still: yee haw! [BrideFinds.com]

Miranda Lambert isn’t the only bride to deck the bridal party out in untraditional wedding-wear. Let’s take a look at other celebs in somewhat-weird wedding attire. (And check out more of The Frisky’s Wedding Survival Guide here!)
