“Apparently, there’s a lot of debate going on right now whether I’m qualified or not to be the new judge on ‘American Idol’ … I’ll tell you right now, how I know I’m going to be a great judge … I’ve spent my whole life being judged. So I know what it’s like. So I will be kind. I will be compassionate. I will be empathetic, and I will be truthful. I will be an honest judge without being mean. But the things that people are saying…I thought America had moved past this. First, we have the first African American President. We’ve sworn in our first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. I think ‘American Idol’ is ready for their first blonde judge … I do.”

Mackenzie Phillips, best known for her role on the ’70s and ’80s sitcom “One Day at a Time,” and for being the daughter of musician John Phillips from the legendary ’60s band the Mamas and the Papas, will appear on “Oprah” today to discuss all kinds of family secrets shared in her new tell-all, High on Arrival, out today. Sure to be the biggest jaw-dropping secret of all is the confession that she had a long-term sexual relationship with her father that eventually became consensual! The first time her father had sex with her, she says, was the night before her wedding to Rolling Stones entourage member, Jeff Sessler, when she was 19. Keep reading »

The paparazzi were on hand to snap away behind-the-scenes as Katy Perry shot a rather wet-looking new video yesterday in LA. (They’re so helpful, those guys.) But it was Katy’s stylist who really went out of his way to assist when he lent not one, but two hands to make sure his client and her girls were looking their best. This may seem extreme, but there are lots of male fashion stylists out there and we’re pretty sure plenty of their mitts have been in even more intimate places than this. In fact, we shudder to think how much work Gaga‘s dresser has cut out for herself. Or himself. Haha, get it? (Uh, maybe not, never mind.) [TMZ] Keep reading »
Danielle Staub of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” has some serious beef with Jennifer Aniston. Aniston was recently a guest on “Chelsea Lately” to talk about her flick “The Bounty,” which was filmed in Atlantic City, New Jersey. At one point during the show, Aniston quipped simply, “What is with that smell?” This got Staub very riled up. She ranted to Us Weekly, “Why don’t you see more of New Jersey before you say it smells? If it were so bad, I wouldn’t be living here for 22 years. I will personalize a tour and take her to a fabulous lunch on me afterwards, all homemade Italian food, and a tour of all the wonderfully smelling places in New Jersey.” [NY Daily News]
I get the state pride, but who cares if someone thinks your state smells? Real Housewives, that’s who. But Aniston isn’t the only celeb to speak ill of a state or city. Here are a few other celebs who totally hate America, kinda! Keep reading »
Atlanta “Housewife” NeNe Leakes and Orange County “Housewife” Gretchen Rossi faked a make-out sesh for the cameras. This is what I was talking about when I suggested a “Real Housewives” spoof last month. [Beverly Hills, CA, 9/22/09] Keep reading »
Last night Jennifer Garner appeared on “The Jay Leno Show” to promote her film “The Invention of Lying.” Or so she hoped. Before Jay would let her talk about the movie, Jennifer had to recite the Boston Red Sox’s starting lineup (since husband Ben Affleck is such a huge fan).
Jennifer was able to name the players with no problem, even adding commentary like, “he looks like George Clooney” and “he’s been having a great year, by the way.” Pretty impressive, Jen!
This got us to wondering just how many of you take on your boyfriend’s hobbies or become fans of the sports teams he likes. Has your boyfriend’s obsessive checking of scores rubbed off on you so much that you’ve become a fan yourself? Keep reading »
If Victoria Rowell had worn her Obama gown to the Emmy Awards last year, it probably wouldn’t have been so shocking because a lot of celebs were showing their support for Barack Obama‘s presidential campaign at that time. But she donned a dress with his face all over it at a time when most people are still trying to figure out whether it’s appropriate to still wear their Obama paraphernalia now that he’s president. Victoria said she was trying to make a statement and she certainly did, but I think her reasoning was lost in the shock value. She told Essence.com that health care reform was her motive for wearing the gown …
