Supposedly, season five of “Celebrity Rehab” will be Dr. Drew Pinsky’s last. While the show hasn’t been officially cancelled, it is said to be going on “indefinite hiatus,” and we can just guess what that means. It’s been a very rough year for “Celebrity Rehab” alums. Two of Dr. Drew’s former patients on the show died as a result of their struggles with addiction—Alice in Chains guitarist Mike Starr and “Grease” actor Jeff Conway. Dr. Drew and his staff are mourning these deaths and have vowed to continue to help other celebs get clean and sober.
Five episodes of season five have aired so far, and they have been intense, to say the least. This season features an all-star cast with all-star addictions: Michael Lohan, Long Island Lolita Amy Fisher, Chinese actress Bai Ling, former baseball star Dwight “Doc” Gooden, “Survivor” castaway Jessica “Sugar” Kiper, actress (and Director’s Guild Gala heckler) Sean Young, “Baywatch” hunk Jeremy Jackson, and former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler, who happens to be a two-time Celebrity Rehabber. The season has us glued to the screen. After the jump, the top five moments that have gone down so far. May they inspire you to set your DVR. Keep reading »
Lady Gaga‘s newest alter ego has emerged from incubation and is already causing trouble. Gaga introduced “Yuyi,” a wheelchair-bound goth-mermaid, to her Australian fans last week at a show in Sydney. The Aussie Monsters loved Yuyi, but not everyone was as excited. Not surprisingly, disability advocates everywhere are calling Gaga out for using paralysis for shock-value. But her biggest opponent may surprise you. What on earth could have Bette Midler in such an uproar over Gaga’s mermaid get-up?
Well, in 1980, Bette did the exact same routine. Keep reading »

Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively are dating. And — at least according to The National Enquirer — Blake was none too pleased when she was at Leo’s New York apartment recently and discovered a suitcase full of lingerie belonging to his ex, model Bar Refaeli. Allegedly, she flipped out, and Leo—being the gentleman that he is—promptly marched down to the dumpster to destroy the evidence. A nice save, considering his first reaction probably went something like, “Don’t worry, she just hasn’t picked it up yet.” [CelebSlam]
We feel (insecure?) for Blake. We too have had unfortunate experiences with traces of exes past in guys’ homes. After the jump, some stories from Frisky staffers and friends. Cringe for us, please. Keep reading »
Kim Kardashian has set a wedding date—August 20th. And it is going to be one of the biggest displays of extravagance we’ve seen in a long time. The word on the street is that she is hiring a fleet of Maybachs and Rolls Royces—two of the world’s most expensive cars—to bring her guests to her wedding. I’d like to criticize this, but I guess you can do such things when you have the cash just laying around, or if you know People is going to pay you $1,000,000 for the exclusive wedding photos. The way I see it, if Kimmy wants diamond confetti thrown at her on her special day, that’s her prerogative. She’s only going to get married (again) once, right? (Right?) Either way, we guess there are a lot more ridiculous things one could spend their fortune on. Click through these photos to see some of the most insane things celebrities have done with their money.
