Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
According to the most reputable of sources, The National Enquirer, Angelina Jolie has been visiting a psychic in New Orleans and recently said to her, “I want to contact my mother.” Angie and her mom were best friends and since her death in 2007, she’s missed her advice. Apparently, Angie is planning a seance with the psychic in January. According to an insider, “One of Angie’s biggest regrets is that she never asked her mom if she thought Brad was ‘the one.’” [Celebitchy]
It’s a freaky enough thought that cellphone radiation could cause cancer—something we’ve been hearing whispers about for years. Just this week, the World Health Organization declared they are looking into it as a genuine possiblity. But there’s some evidence emerging that cellphone radiation could also cause infertility in men. An article over at The Daily Beast surveys the data—mainly, three studies that found higher levels of damaged sperm in rats who were exposed to the radiation. But the piece also cites another study conducted from 1993 to 2007 that looked at the records of men at Austrian fertility clinics and whether or not the guys used cellphones. Of the cellphone users, 68 percent had damaged sperm while only 58 percent of non-users did—a significant difference. The recommendation for guys at the moment? Keep cellphones out of their pockets.
Of course, it doesn’t look like any research has been dedicated to whether cellphones effect female fertility. So I guess we have that fun to look forward to? Also, do not even think of using this information as a birth control method.

The MTV Movie Awards’ red carpets have always reflected fashion trends — for better or worse.
When the awards show debuted in 1992, over-sized suits and big hair were in. In the late ’90s and early 2000s, it seemed every starlet bared their midriff on the red carpet. By the late 2000s, classy yet chic looks reigned.
“I want to do something that’s going to utilize my brain a little more than this show. If ['Chelsea Lately'] is the show that I’m going to do, it’s going to change. But it may turn out that I’m done with it altogether. I can’t keep doing the same thing; my brain is bleeding. I want to do something that’s more mindful and isn’t celebrity-centered. I’m not looking to totally bail on E! They’ve done a lot for me, and I like it here. If you take away the Kardashians.”
—Chelsea Handler talks to The Hollywood Reporter about what she hopes will happen now that her contract with E! is creeping towards finished. The network is trying hard to extend her contract, but Chelsea says she hasn’t been so impressed with their counter-offers and it sure sounds like she’s ready for a big change. But she swears it isn’t ‘The Tonight Show.’ “That’s a job for Jimmy Fallon. I’m way too divisive for a show like that,” she says. At least she is self-aware? [THR] Keep reading »

“All that ‘it girl’ s**t makes me kind of uncomfortable. I’m in a very lucky position because I’ve been around [fame] so long, I don’t feel the need to chase it. My dad was brought up very old school, very strict … So he’s wearing leather pants and a boa, but he would be like, ‘Did you do your chores today?’ Or … ‘Yes, there’s a party going on with Mick Jagger and some models, but it’s your bedtime.’”
