Scott Weiland Reveals He Was Raped In A New Memoir

“[A] big muscular guy, a high school senior … raped me [when I was 12]. It was quick, not pleasant. I was too scared to tell anyone. ‘Tell anyone,’ he warned, ‘and you’ll never have another friend in this school. I’ll ruin your f***in’ reputation’ … This is a memory I suppressed until only a few years ago when, in rehab, it came flooding back. Therapy will do that to you.”

—An excerpt from Stone Temple Pilots/ Velvet Revolver singer, Scott Weiland‘s new memoir, Not Dead & Not For Sale. It’s very rare for famous men to come forward and talk about sexual abuse and assault. It’s hard for anyone to do so, but there seems to be more of a stigma for men. I commend his bravery for choosing to write about his rape. This book should be an interesting read — apparently it also include an anecdote about Scott getting high and almost getting romantically involved with Courtney Love. Yikes. [Spin] Keep reading »

Sage Sex Advice From John Waters

Copy that, John Waters. Reading is sexy. Books are like an aphrodisiac to me. I don’t think I would even be able to do it with a guy who didn’t have books. [Rachel Profiling] Keep reading »

4 Romantic Books To Disgust And Annoy Your Lover

Some articles require a lengthy explanation in order to give the reader a context in which to view them. This is not one of those. What I am doing here is simple: I’m proving, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that romance guru and best-selling author of 1001 Ways to be Romantic, Gregory J.P. Godek is the stupidest, laziest waste of stem cells to ever “write” a book. Every time Godek’s semeny, pizza-covered fingers touch his keyboard, the world’s collective I.Q. drops.

The Situation’s Dad Is Shopping A Tell-All

Look at that. We have another celebrity parent tell-all in the works. Frank Sorrentino—pops to Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of “Jersey Shore” fame—said that he is in the process of selling a book about his son. And it’s not going to be a nice one. “I’m calling Mike on his s***,” Frank wrote in a blog post. “I covered for Mike his entire life and when I needed his help he left me hanging.”

Here’s the thing: The Situation is kind of an open book. I mean, we already know that he will screw anything with a pulse if he has a drink in his hand. But Frank says there is much more dirt. For example… Keep reading »

Levi Johnston Is A “Deer In The Headlights” On His Book Cover

The book cover for Levi Johnston’s Deer In The Headlights: My Life In Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs, is everything I hoped the rumored tell-all‘s cover would be. Levi looking hot/really baked? Check. Antler imagery? Check. No credit for the ghostwriter who probably tapped this thing out while Levi was clubbing baby seals? Check. Fact: I would never read a book by Sarah Palin, but I might just read a book by Levi Johnston. [Amazon] Keep reading »

Natalie Portman’s Dad Pens A “Fertility Thriller”

Natalie Portman‘s dad has babies on the brain, and not just because his daughter is in the final trimester of her pregnancy. Dr. Avner Hershlag (Portman is Natalie’s stage name, FYI) just happens to be a big whig at the Center for Human Reproduction in Long Island and one of the nation’s leading reproductive specialists. But he also has a creative side, too. In fact, Avner is currently shopping his first novel to publishers. It’s called Misconception, and he has dubbed it a “fertility thriller.”

So what does that mean? Keep reading »
