Scott Weiland Reveals He Was Raped In A New Memoir

“[A] big muscular guy, a high school senior … raped me [when I was 12]. It was quick, not pleasant. I was too scared to tell anyone. ‘Tell anyone,’ he warned, ‘and you’ll never have another friend in this school. I’ll ruin your f***in’ reputation’ … This is a memory I suppressed until only a few years ago when, in rehab, it came flooding back. Therapy will do that to you.”

—An excerpt from Stone Temple Pilots/ Velvet Revolver singer, Scott Weiland‘s new memoir, Not Dead & Not For Sale. It’s very rare for famous men to come forward and talk about sexual abuse and assault. It’s hard for anyone to do so, but there seems to be more of a stigma for men. I commend his bravery for choosing to write about his rape. This book should be an interesting read — apparently it also include an anecdote about Scott getting high and almost getting romantically involved with Courtney Love. Yikes. [Spin] Keep reading »

[GQ]

After the jump, we’ve rounded up more quotes from starlets who kissed another woman onscreen. Some loved the experience, some felt awkward doing it, and others just don’t get why the world makes such a big deal about it.

Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Never Lose Another Pen

I live in constant fear that one day I will open a kitchen drawer or a hall closet and every pencil, pen, and bobby pin I’ve ever lost will come tumbling out and I will die, because you guys, I lose a staggering number of writing utensils and bobby pins every day. For example, yesterday I very mindfully placed 3 new pens and 5 bobby pins in my purse. Today there are none. While I can’t say for sure that keeping a zippered pencil pouch in my purse would help remedy this problem, at the very least it would be cute. [$10.50, Madame Cupcake] Keep reading »

Quickies: “Botox Mom” Says She Was Lying & Rashida Jones In Lingerie For “GQ”

  • Kerry Campbell, the mother who said she gave her her eight-year-old daughter Botox so she could compete in beauty pageants, now claims she made everything up. In fact, she says her name isn’t even Kerry Campbell! A woman named Sheena Upton claims she is an actress who was offered $200 by The Sun, a tawdry British tabloid, to “play the role of Kerry Campbell” for an article. Upton/Campbell’s daughter was removed from her home by Child Protective Services, then returned after the girl was examined by doctors. Media outlets who interviewed Upton/Campbell, like “Good Morning America” and “Inside Edition,” are now scrambling to figure out her true identity (and the rest of the truth!). [TMZ]

Brad Pitt Always Loved The Chaos Of A Big Family

“I know it seems extreme from the outside, but I’ve always kind of operated this way. When I know, I know, and why mess around? I had a friend who had a big family when I was a kid. I just loved the chaos around the breakfast table and the fighting and the ribbing, and the mom making pancakes for everyone or the dad making pancakes. And I just decided then if I was ever going to do it – this left some indelible mark on me – if I was ever going to do it, that’s the way I was going to do it.”

Brad Pitt talks about going from zero kids to six kids, three biological and three adopted, all in the span of just a few years. During a press conference for “Tree of Life,” Brad said he’s always wanted to have a big family. Oh, and he also let it slip that he and Angelina Jolie are hoping to do another movie together. Here’s hoping they go for a fresh idea rather than, say, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith 2.” [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
