Need just the right card to express your emotions on your cousin’s trip to rehab? Amy Winehouse has your back. The Sun is reporting that Winehouse is coming out with a line of gift wrap and greeting cards using her famous lyrics. (That’s a fake mock up card, to the left. )I guess that just because she’s on permanent vacay down in St. Lucia doesn’t mean her “people” can’t make money off of her—Amy’s publishers are rolling out “Rehab” wrapping paper (the song chorus will be printed continuously) followed by “Back To Black” and “You Know I’m No Good” greetings cards. Her publishers are claiming: “The Amy-branded cards are classy too. ‘You Know I’m No Good’ is best for heartfelt apologies and ‘Back To Black,’ with an appropriate wreath, will be the respectful response to a bereavement.” Now, who the hell will actually buy them? Those with friends currently doing a stint in rehab? [The Sun] Keep reading »

It was kind of refreshing when Kim Kardashian posed for Life & Style and the photos weren’t airbrushed, following her Complex photoshopping scandal. In her L&S interview, Kim was all, “I have cellulite, so what!” and “I love my body the way it is.” This makes her just-announced project a bit hypocritical. According to a press release from Nivea, Kim is partaking in Nivea’s “Good-bye Cellulite, Hello Bikini Challenge,” a four-week holistic program that includes using Nivea’s Good-bye Cellulite Gel-Cream and Patches to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Kim, we thought you had accepted your cellulite. What gives? [Nivea] Keep reading »
Sigh, now this is a celebrity rumor I love to hear. The forthcoming book Bobby & Jackie: A Love Story by C. David Heymann details the alleged affair between Jackie Kennedy and her brother-in-law Bobby. That’s not the good part. While researching his book, Heymann says he came across unpublished passages from Marlon Brando’s autobiography (which I have read and it is glorious) Songs My Mother Taught Me which reveal Brando had an affair with Jackie a year after John F. Kennedy was murdered. According to Heymann, Brando wrote:
“She kept waiting for me to try to get her into bed. When I failed to make a move, she took matters into her own hands and popped the magic question. ‘Would you like to spend the night?’ And I said, ‘I thought you’d never ask.’”

Nice bootylicious bikini Kate. But you’re not on vacation anymore — don’t you own some clothes? Also, please give your baby girl back her bonnet. [Reading, PA, 6/25/09] Keep reading »
Katy Perry posted this photo of her on Twitter, so presumably it’s her? I always knew she looked like the kind of girl to eat pizza with a fork and knife. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Deanna Hummel, the 23-year-old teacher that Jon Gosselin supposedly cheated on his soon-to-be ex wife with may appear on the show when it returns on August 3. We don’t know what sort of role Deanna will have yet, but she’s probably going to be filmed since she may be a part of Jon’s life now. I think TLC is doing this to boost ratings—but they’re really going to eff up the kids in the process. Maybe they should just rename this show “Jon & Kate Plus A Butcher Knife Minus One?” [LA Times] Keep reading »
