Joan Rivers has been mouthing off all around town. Yesterday TMZ posted a video of her calling out Brooke Shields for pretending to be besties with Michael Jackson, even though she hadn’t actually seen him in years. Rivers snarked, “It’s called face time.” Clearly, face time is something Rivers is familiar with. Between winning “Celebrity Apprentice” earlier this year, getting roasted on Comedy Central, and her new show “How’d You Get So Rich?” on TV Land, the gossip queen has been drumming up more drama than usual. This week alone she also trash-talked Jon Gosselin, Robert Redford and Jay Leno. Keep reading »
I’ve always liked Sharon Osbourne. She looks like a woman who can hold her own—managing the career of her bat-biting rocker husband, caring for three rebellious children in the public eye, and not letting reality TV totally ruin her family. Sharon recently revealed that the fierce personality and hard work ethic that has brought her so far all came from … being ugly. Yes, in the new issue of Psychologies magazine Sharon says that her life would’ve been very different if she hadn’t been born fugly.
First off, I’m not sure I agree with Sharon’s diagnosis of her appearance. But even more than that, I’ve got some beef with Sharon’s beauty bomb. Keep reading »
Controversial celebrity sculptor Daniel Edwards has unveiled his latest work: a park-bench-sized statue of Angelina Jolie in the nude, double breastfeeding her twins. This artistic work of public indecency (she’s not wearing pants!) is called “Landmark for Breastfeeding” and was inspired by Jolie’s cover photograph on W magazine last year. Edwards decided that, in order to encourage more women to breastfeed and to raise global awareness of public nursing, he would depict one twin as African-American and the other as not, since that could totally happen in the real world. Beginning September 11, at Mainsite Contemporary Art Museum in Norman, Oklahoma, the piece will be on display, before it’s whisked off to an exhibition in London. [Capla Kesting Fine Art]
Though extremely odd, this is far from the strangest piece of art Daniel Edwards has sculpted. After the jump, how Edwards’ other celebrity pieces stack up to this latest magnum opus. Keep reading »
The lovely Audrey Tautou is currently doing press for “Coco Avant Chanel,” which we love since we get to hear her speak in her beautifully accented, somewhat broken English. (Plus, it shows a few scenes from the film that weren’t in the trailer.) What does Audrey think makes Coco so great? “She was a woman at a time when women were not as equal as men, and she managed to win her independence and her freedom.” Watch the interview at MarieClaire.co.uk Keep reading »
She should have knocked on wood. Jessica Simpson is on the cover of the September issue of Glamour, looking happy and chic. But, natch, the interview and photo shoot happened before Tony Romo told her that he didn’t want to be her Ken doll. So it’s interesting that, in the story, Jessica makes an odd psychic prediction about her life sans Romo:
“If this article comes out and we’re not together, I’d still love him, and he’d still be a huge part of who I am today.”
Check out her other musings, after the jump. [Glamour] Keep reading »
Boyfriend of the Year Chris Brown is getting his slap on the wrist in a L.A. courtroom today and then appearing on “Larry King Live” (reportedly after Oprah’s camp said “No way, Jose” to his sorry ass). Brown’s schedule is so free, you see, because he isn’t doing any jail time for beating the crap out of his girlfriend. Keep reading »
I knew Ed Swiderski couldn’t be trusted! This week’s Us Weekly drops a bomb — Ed allegedly had not one, but TWO girlfriends while filming “The Bachelorette,” slept with both of them during the filming process, and even expressed that Jillian Harris wasn’t his type. Ed and Jillian appeared on “Good Morning America” this morning to refute the story, but Us Weekly based their allegations on interviews with the two women, plus emails and text messages allegedly between them and Ed. Check out the “GMA” interview here and read the whole Us Weekly story. Do you think Ed is a snake or these two women are just out for publicity? Personally, I think one thing is clear — shoulda picked Reid, Jillian! Keep reading »
Mariah Carey’s next album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, hits shelves on September 15th. And it’ll be a lot bigger than your traditional CD. The album will come bundled with a 34-page magazine made by the folks at Elle. The ad section of the book, which covered the costs for this endeavor, will be home to lifestyle ads that reflect Mariah’s taste—Elizabeth Arden, Angel Champagne, Carmen Steffens, Le Métier de Beauté, and the Bahamas Board of Tourism. A second section of the magazine will contain articles all about Mariah, with “VIP Access to Her Sexy Love Life,” “Amazing Closet,” and “Recording Rituals.” The third part of the book will be your traditional liner notes, full of lyrics and images. The entire booklet will also be available in digital form, and an abridged version will be tucked into 500,000 copies of Elle’s October issue.
Sure, this is the first cross-platform collaboration of its kind. But isn’t this shill-fest taking things way too far?

Personally, I’m pretty excited about Guy Ritchie
‘s upcoming “Sherlock Holmes” flick, starring Roberty Downey Jr.
and Jude Law
. From the preview, it looks pretty intense and I’m into the ninja thing that Sherlock has going on. But I became even more intrigued when Robert Downey Jr., said in an interview this week that in the movie, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are gay lovers. Downey Jr., who plays Sherlock, said that he and Dr. Watson (aka Jude) are “…two men who happen to be roommates, wrestle a lot and share a bed. It’s bad-ass.” [Metro UK
