Sarah Palin Says Levi Johnston Is Welcome For Thanksgiving


The “Oprah Winfrey Show” has released a couple of clips from the interview with Sarah Palin, which will air on Monday. In one of the clips, Oprah asks Palin whether Levi Johnston, the father of her grandbaby, is invited to the Palins for Thanksgiving. The former Alaska governor replies:
“It’s lovely to think that he would ever even consider such a thing. Because, he is a part of the family and you want to bring him in the fold and kind of under your wing. And he needs that, too, Oprah. I think he needs to know that he is loved and he has the most beautiful child and this can all work out for good. We don’t have to keep going down this road of controversy and drama all the time. We’re not really into the drama. We don’t really like that. We’re more productive. We have other things to concentrate on.”

Well, so does Levi, Mrs. Palin, or haven’t you heard about his recent Playgirl shoot, hmm? But, really, can you imagine if Levi did join the Palins for Thanksgiving this year? I bet he’d have a hard time telling the difference between his son, Tripp, and Palin’s infant son, Trig. Awkward! Keep reading »

(Another) Quote Of The Day: Carrie Prejean Quotes The Good Book

“No, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with getting breast implants as a Christian. I think it’s a personal decision. I don’t see anywhere in the Bible where it says you shouldn’t get breast implants.

—De-throned beauty queen Carrie Prejean may also be surprised that the Bible doesn’t say anything about airplanes, the polio vaccine, pasteurized milk, or electricity, either. [Christianity Today] Keep reading »

Sammy Sosa Admits To Using Face Cream

Sammy Sosa denied rumors that his lightened skin was the result of vitiligo during his Spanish interview on Univision’s “Primer Impacto” with Tony Dandrades Tuesday. When asked what was going on with his skin, the slugger responded: “I use a cream to keep my skin smooth and soft. I apply it before I go to bed. When I was playing for Chicago all those years, I was in the sun a lot for 1 o’clock games.” He wouldn’t say what type of face cream he uses or the name of it because he said he’s in negotiations to market the European product, but he did say he can’t stay in the sun too long when he uses it. I suspect he’s using the kind of skin-bleaching creams that are sold on the black market in many minority communities. Keep reading »

Eva Mendes Says Getting Naked On Camera Is Empowering — But Is It?

“If I feel it’s appropriate to show some nudity in the scenes then I go for it. As much as I use my sexuality, I have never felt exploited. I feel like it’s on my terms and I have no problem with it.”

That’s actress Eva Mendes, who stars in the upcoming “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans,” on going naked in the movies. If she’s in control of her sexuality, her theory goes, how can she be exploited? Cinematical’s Peter Kaplan agrees:

“Speaking as someone who first noticed Mendes when Ethan Hawke opened a door in ‘Training Day’ to reveal her lying naked on a bed, I say: ‘I have no problem with it, either.’”

One imagines Broadsheet’s Kate Harding would not concur. Keep reading »

Look, Everyone! Jon Gosselin Can Make Fun Of Himself, Too


I can almost hear the spoof bandwagon, carrying the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Kate Gosselin and Hailey Glassman, pulling away while Jon Gosselin runs behind—wearing Ed Hardy, natch—yelling, “Hey! Wait for me, guys!” It seems he caught up because this video shows Jon having an epiphany and realizing he needs to change his ways. Then, to the tune of Cher’s “Turn Back Time,” he chucks out his hairspray, puts his tacky clothes in a box, dons a collared shirt and fires his hot bikini-wearing DJ. It’s a good start, but he still has a long way to go. I’d say the next step would be disappearing. Forever. Keep reading »

Wynonna Judd Thinks Taylor Swift Is Too Young For So Much Success

Wow, Taylor Swift is on a roll. After headlining “Saturday Night Live” last weekend, Taylor swept the CMA awards last night winning the coveted “Entertainer of the Year” title at the ripe age of 19. Not everyone was thrilled with her win, though. Country legend Wynonna Judd sounded like sour grapes when she told USA Today: “You want my honest comment? It’s too much too soon. Time is God’s way of keeping everything from happening at once. It’s just too much of a good thing too soon.” Then she added that she worries someone who has achieved such great success at a young age won’t have anything else to work for afterward. “Now it’s over coffee breaks, the success, almost. You have to play catch up … It’s like the girl who wins an Oscar and she’s under 20. What do you do from here?” Something tells me Taylor Swift will figure it out just fine. “I never imagined that the unattainable thing that I dreamed about could happen to me at 19,” she said about her big win. “It’s a lot to absorb. So now the next challenge is to find the next challenge.” [via US Weekly] Keep reading »

Is Megan Fox A Master Of Spin Who’s Fooled Us All Along?

It’s not that often that The New York Times Magazine slaps a Hollywood starlet on its cover. The last time was in February, when Kate Winslet fronted the Oscars issue and was one of eight nominees featured in the cover story. So I was pretty surprised to see Megan Fox‘s blue eyes staring out at me from this week’s cover—even though she has no film out and is not particularly relevant at the moment—along with a five-page story about her called “The Self-Manufacture of Megan Fox.” I scoffed, but the article is actually pretty interesting, especially for someone who has written countless posts over the past year riffing off of some of the insane things Fox says in interviews. To anyone listening to her words, it was pretty clear that she was going provocative to get a reaction. But, at least according to this article, Fox’s plan to make herself infamous was much, much more deliberate—she’s presented not only as smart, but as an image-maker on par with Karl Rove. “Hollywood is filled with women who have tried to cope. I like to study them. I like to see how they’ve succeeded. And how they’ve failed,” says Fox. “I’ve learned that being a celebrity is like being a sacrificial lamb. I created this character as an offering at the sacrifice.” Keep reading »
