Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Yesterday, Paris Hilton had to tear herself apart from her new BFFs in Dubai to take the stand in a Miami courtroom. The folks who invested in her movie “Pledge This!” are suing the heiress for $8.3 million in damages because she didn’t carry out any of the promotion for the movie that she was contractually obligated to do. Her lawyer admitted that Hilton wasn’t a big fan of the film’s final cut, but alleged that she still did her best to endorse the flick. But let’s be serious, you know that her busy schedule of partying and being slutty prevented her from doing as many appearances as the investors wanted. The silly soro-stitution movie about a fake sorority at a fake university who tried to diversify to win “Best Sorority of the Year” only opened in 25 theaters and made a very weak $2.9 million. Hilton was paid $1 million to play the lead and the investors want to recoup the money they put into this mega flop. A note to these producers: did you ever think that maybe your movie just sucked and that’s why nobody saw it? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
Pitchfork says the kick-ass electro-punk group, Le Tigre, is working on music with Christina Aguilera of all people. Presumably they’re doing music for X-tina’s new album, since JD Samson recently told NickyDigital.com that Le Tigre won’t be touring again “anytime in the near future.” (Kathleen Hanna has been teaching at NYU, Johanna Fateman recently had a baby, and JD Samson has been DJing with a group called MEN.) Oh, poo. Well, at least we’ll hear Christina get their beats dirrty. But still…what’s next? Ani Di Franco and Miley? Cowboy Junkies and Taylor Swift? Ooh wait, that would be kind of awesome.

The website that allows you to tell dozens, hundreds – or if you are Ashton Kutcher – a million-plus friends what you are doing, how you’re doing and who you’re doing it with continues to catch on like swine flu. But the ease with which you can share and respond to friends is infecting Twitterers with a condition I like to call T.M.T: “Too Much Tweeting” named after T.M.I “Too Much Information.” No one suffers from this worse than naturally narcissistic celebs. Stars keep turning to the site to inform us of everything from their bowel movements to their “dark places.” After the jump, celebrities OVERSHARING.

Want workout and nutritional advice from Heidi Montag? (How very Elizabeth Hasselbeck of her.) Yeah me neither. But apparently Mrs. Pratt doesn’t care what we want—she’s once again unleashing her Playboy-rific bod on the world in a new workout DVD. The plan is to also offer such unheard of and novel nutritional advice like: Avoid all “white” foods, fill up on lean meats, green veggies, apples, berries, blah blah blah. (Oh, and for the record, “Heidi loves steak!”—only if it’s grass-fed, though.) I wonder if she’ll recommend her plastic surgeon along with all this talk of 90 minute five day-a-week workouts?

We still don’t know where Michael Jackson‘s permanent resting place is going to be, but for now he’s chillin’ in a crypt that belongs to Motown founder Berry Gordy. Gordy discovered the Jackson Five, and now they’re discovering each other’s remains. MJ is in good company—near the likes of Bette Davis and Sandra Dee. In case you were wondering, Michael is still without his brain, which docs are keeping for testing. [NY Post]
And there’s even more Jackson news, after the jump. Keep reading »
- Ryan Reynolds says he and wife Scarlett Johansson will definitely adopt because he was lucky to have an older adopted brother and he realizes there are so many orphans in the world. [PopEater] — Maybe they’ll go against the Hollywood trend and adopt an American or Canadian orphan.
- Jim Carrey’s 21-year-old daughter Jane is pregnant, making him a first-time grandfather. [People] — I wonder if he’ll try to persuade her not to inoculate the baby.
- Teresa Giudice from “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” has been indulging in decadent treats while pregnant because she can’t have her favorite sweet cocktails. [OK! Magazine]
Rydonna? Ryarlett? I don’t know what we’ll call them, but Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson may be the newest celebs to start adopting a small tribe. The hunky “Proposal” star recently blabbed to Britain’s Glamour magazine that he “couldn’t be more pro-adoption” and “has every intention of adopting at some time.” Why? Because his older brother was adopted. Well, Ryan is 32, so it’s time to get cracking! Not sure yet where he is thinking of eventually picking up his little one, but I know one girl in Manhattan who would love the gig. [I'm Not Obsessed] Keep reading »
Oh, joy! Margaret Cho visited “The View” this morning and dished all about how she cannot have an orgasm from intercourse, so she hightailed it to her doctor’s office to get a bead of collagen injected into her G-spot.
The G-spot shot didn’t work at all, unforch. But I’ll give you one guess as to what still does make Cho come! (Even pregnant and prudish Elisabeth Hasselbeck cracks a smile.) [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
