““I love playing Peggy [Olson]. Finding the balance between playing her, finding new things, and not losing her, and constantly finding enough new stuff to keep her remaining herself … Playing her is an exercise in remaining simple, despite the fact that she is becoming more complicated. [She's] not out to hurt anyone, she’s just trying to figure out who she is. But it still is agenda-free. She is looking for her place in the world.”
Jon Gosselin‘s girlfriend (for now), Hailey Glassman, has supposedly enlisted a crew of friends to call companies and ask for free clothes, jewelry, and even a pricey detox diet. The 23-year-old is using her “role” on “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ to get freebies, an insider claims. Unfortunately for Hailey, most companies aren’t biting. One went as far to say, “We don’t want to be a part of the drama and most companies have no desire to align themselves with Jon and Hailey. Companies that give gifts to celebrities want positive people attached to their products.” But hey, a girl’s gotta try. [Fox News]
The whole concept of swag is pretty infuriating. Why give free stuff to the people who can totally afford it? But I don’t begrudge famous folks for working the system. After the jump, the most notorious swag hoarders! Keep reading »
At her show last night, Miley took the G from her rating and made it gangsta, straight up. Wearing booty shorts and backin’ it up doggy-style, she might as well be on the cover of a rap album, circa 1993. Well, we’re not sure about the audience, but at least she came to get down. [Anaheim, 9/23/09] Keep reading »
In 2007, Beyoncéwas forced to cancel a concert in Malaysia, a predominantly Muslim country, because the fundamentalist Pan Malaysian Islamic Party is “against western entertainment that promotes hedonism.” Now that she’s scheduled to play there on October 25, uber-religious folks are up in arms again and working hard to get her banned. See, in Malaysia, performers are supposed to wear very P.C. clothes and cover themselves from chest to knees. They aren’t allowed to jump, shout, hug or kiss onstage. In other words, fun is not to be had. [AP via Yahoo]
Beyoncé isn’t the only performer who’s drawn the ire of religious countries. Here are five other stars who’ve been banned from countries or came close to it. Keep reading »
Ever wanted to know what a megastar spends in a month? Lucky for you, Britney Spears’ credit card bill for the first 11 months after her dad took control of her finances has been leaked to TMZ. Wait, Britney only has one credit card? Time to diversify, girl. Also, considering the insane amount of my credit card bill over the past year, I’m surprised that BritBrit, who makes zillions, only racked up $112K. After the jump, how BritBrit spent her money this year. Keep reading »
Holy inappropriate, Batman. It hasn’t even been 24 hours since “One Day at a Time” actress Mackenzie Phillips sat down on Oprah‘s couch and tearfully confessed that she had an incestuous relationship with her dad, John Phillips of the Mamas & the Papas’ fame, for more than a decade that culminated in a pregnancy and subsequent abortion. And already, the keeper of John Phillips’ estate, a lawyer named Jeffrey A. Greenberg, has made a strange announcement. No, he hasn’t come out and said anything about the allegations. But he does want us all to know that he’ll be releasing an album of songs recorded by John and Mackenzie Phillips in the ’80s, when John decided to revive the Mamas & the Papas with Mackenzie and a few original bandmates. The album will be called either “Papa John and Friends” or “Many Mamas, Many Papas” and won’t be out until early next year, though Greenberg is looking to release a single soon. “Obviously, [John is] not around now to speak to any of this,” says Greenberg. “People will make up their own minds. I was a huge fan of his and my object is to hopefully make people aware of John’s music and his talent. In a perverse way, I guess, if there is a way to make lemonade out of the lemons, that would be good.” I don’t know, this album sounds pretty exploitative to me. And that photo above kind of turns my stomach. [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »

- Villagers in the town of Pataudi near Delhi have accused Julia Roberts of interrupting one of their most important religious festivals, Navratri, with the filming of “Eat, Pray, Love” at their temple. [BBC] — I don’t really know how things go in this village, but I’d assume the temple officials (if there are any) would have known when the filming would occur before agreeing.

Tiffany Trump isn’t a name you hear too often, even though she’s the offspring of Donald Trump, who is always in the news for one thing or another. Back in the early ’90s, you couldn’t escape the scandal turned marriage that occurred between Donald and then-wife Marla Maples, who is Tiffany’s mother. But when Marla and Donald divorced in 1999, she and her daughter sunk into relative obscurity. In this day and age of hyper-celebrity, it’s rare for an attractive, 16-year-old daughter of a celebrity to keep a low profile, especially when her über-wealthy father has his own reality show and pageants and has placed another daughter, Ivanka Trump, into the spotlight. I did some digging to find out what Tiffany has been up to and it came as no surprise that she’s already planning her business future. Keep reading »
