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]

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!)

Today’s Lady News: Sarah Palin Gets A Documentary Called “The Undefeated”

  • A documentary about Sarah Palin called “The Undefeated” is set to premiere in Iowa next month. Just last week Palin and her husband, Todd, watched the final cut off the video at the new home they’ve reportedly bought in Arizona. The film was financed and made by conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon, who last year debuted a documentary about the Tea Party, “Generation Zero,” on the Fox News Channel. The documentary is about Palin’s record in Alaska, focusing on her life before she and her family shot to international fame. Bannon reportedly wants to help reacquaint the country with Palin’s core values in an effort to make her a more viable candidate for a presidential run. Anyone interested in checking out “The Undefeated”? [Real Clear Politics]
  • The House of Representatives banned teaching hospitals from using federal funds to teach med students how to perform abortions. Women’s health advocates say it is crucial for doctors to know how to perform abortions, even if they choose not to do so in their own practice, as they may be faced with the need to perform one as a life-saving procedure. Ugh. Everyone who voted for this should be forced to watch “The Cider House Rules.” [AP]
  • MSNBC’s Ed Schultz called right-wing radio host Laura Ingraham a “right-wing slut” and a “talk slut” on air. Extremely inappropriate. [Change.org]

Meghan McCain Lashes Back At Glenn Beck For Fat-Shaming

Dang it, Meghan McCain is really making me like her! The conservative up-and-comer visited “The Tonight Show” on Monday and spoke out about vile Glenn Beck, who devoted several minutes of barf noises on his radio show to fat-shaming McCain after she posed in a nude bodysuit for a skin cancer PSA. “No man will ever make me a victim, least of all Glenn Beck!” McCain said, wagging her finger in the air and laughing. You go, girl! Keep reading »

On Losing A Pet

On Monday, my parents put to sleep our 14-year-old Wheaton terrier, Timmy. This photo is exactly what Timmy looked like — i.e., sooo cute. My mom is really the one broken up by Timmy’s death; with all her kids moved out of the house, he became like another child (albeit one who never aged past being an impatient, demanding toddler!). I feel a twinge of sadness about Timmy’s death, because I hate to think of animals suffering in pain. But I know he was spoiled rotten during his 14 years in the Wakeman family and had a good life.

John Edwards May Be Indicted For Using Campaign Cash To Hide Affair

John Edwards and Rielle Hunter photo

John Edwards will most likely be indicted with criminal charges for using campaign cash to cover up his affair with videographer/wackadoodle, Rielle Hunter, ABC News is reporting. The U.S. Department of Justice has approved the prosecution, which seeks to indict the sleazy politician for using roughly $1 million of campaign donations to squire away Hunter from the media and the campaign, both of whom suspected the two of having an affair (and later, a love child). The prosecution is expected to argue that the Edwards campaign misused funds to try to cover up his cheating so he could continue onward with his 2008 presidential campaign. Two rich donors allegedly supplied the funds and I think we can assume “hiding the mistress” was not on their list of ways it should be spent. Ugh, I’m going to have to make a spreadsheet of sleazy politicians, their mistresses, love children, and their money problems, because it’s getting hard to keep track of them all. Sigh.
