Roman Polanski will walk free: Switzerland has denied the United States’ request to extradite the filmmaker on a 1977 rape charge. Back then, Polanski served 42 days of a 90 day sentence after he plead guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse for providing a Quaalude and champagne to a 13-year-old girl, who he then raped. When a judge voiced an intention to send him back to prison, Polanski fled the country and has lived in Europe ever since. Keep reading »
Fact: Joan Rivers will kick a girl when she’s down. The sharp-tongued comedienne turned on Lindsay Lohan this weekend, tweeting a string of funny-but-mean one-liners about the jailbird. In a totally uncharacteristic act of maturity, Lohan actually kept her cool on Twitter. So, who came to Lindsay’s defense? Her ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson. See the whole exchange, after the jump … Keep reading »
We thought it a bit strange Perrier would hire burlesque star Dita Von Teese as a sexy spokeswoman, but now we get it. Anyone else would make a brisk rinse-off in Perrier just look silly! (This video is pretty tame, but probably NSFW.) [PerrierByDita.com] Keep reading »

Miley Cyrus: HOW DARE SHE AGE! It’s not just crusty old farts who are scandalized by the “overt sexualization” of that brazen hussy. The New York Times spoke with a handful of middle school teenyboppers who miss her good, clean fun. Girls think Miley has “gone too far” and some of them are marching off in a huff. Keep reading »
No, not Steve Urkel, too! “Family Matters” star Jaleel White has been accused of physically abusing his child’s mother in some very un-Urkel-like behavior. The woman claims two weeks ago, White allegedly punched her in her breasts while they were driving on a highway with their infant in the car. When they arrived home, she claims White slapped her and pushed her into the toilet so hard it broke the tank.
Urkel’s publicist issued the standard denial that all publicists for celebs accused of domestic violence can issue in their sleep: “There was absolutely no battery … no abuse … and the incident never happened. This is just a ploy in an ongoing custody battle over their young daughter to tarnish his name.” We certainly hope this report is untrue. What would Harriette and Carl think of this?

Five years ago, British mum Deborah Higley had a boob job, increasing her bust from a 32A to a D. Her teen daughters, flat-chested themselves, shared a bedroom and would chat before sleep at night about how they, too, wanted breast implants. This year Deborah arranged for her 19- and 21-year-old daughters, Harriet and Rose, to increase their cup sizes as well — and their father covered the bill for all of this. For reasons completely unknown to me, the Higley ladies and their new bosoms posed together for the U.K.’s Daily Mirror newspaper. Keep reading »
Last night, circa 8 p.m., you would have found me three-deep in cherry vodka cocktails. Tomorrow’s agenda? Cupcakes on the beach. Why all the fuss? My bestest friend in all the world/co-pilot in Lindsay Lohan self-tanner-testing, Christiane, is turning 26. Drinks with the girls aren’t enough for this bitch! She won’t be happy until we’re singing “Happy Birthday” as we pick pieces of sand out of our frosting.
This is not my first bout with multiple birthday celebrations. People are still mocking my boyfriend for hosting four — yes, four — birthday parties this year. But it wasn’t because of a big ego or anything like that: David is just the most friendly, social guy on the planet and he celebrated four times with different friends who couldn’t all make it on one night. I guess if four different groups of pals offer to pay for your drinks/dinner, why not go for it? Keep reading »
