For some reason it’s comforting to know that, when painted into a corner by life’s little problems, celebrities are capable of coming up with lame excuses just like the rest of us.
In today’s gallery, we present some of the least believable, most implausible excuses ever offered – as we salute the stars who could have used a much better alibi when they veered off the straight and narrow. Read more at Celebuzz…
“To be honest I was totally terrified. I hadn’t actually been out of my house for seven weeks so I was really anxious. But it felt amazing.”
–Liberty Ross, model and estranged wife of scumbag/dry-humping enthusiast Rupert Sanders, describes her mood before walking the runway of the Alexander Wang show at New York Fashion Week. We spotted Liberty looking fabulous on the “Lawless” red carpet a couple weeks ago, so that seven weeks stat isn’t quiiiite accurate, but still, getting back into the crazy world of runway shows after weathering a very public cheating scandal would definitely be stressful. Kudos to Liberty for strutting her stuff with confidence. [The Cut]
A Miley Cyrus topless pic is not a reason to run through the newsroom screaming “Stop the presses!” This is, after all, a girl who posed topless in a photoshoot with her father in Vanity Fair magazine when she was 15. The blog LOTRAF claims the pic was supposedly taken as a “private” photo for her fiancé Liam Hemsworth by the photographer Vijat Mohndra. But it’s also posted in a photo gallery on Vijat’s web site, apparently as part of a larger photography project of Miss Cyrus, which doesn’t seem too “private” to me. Anyway, here is Miley and her dreamcatcher tattoo chilling out in a bath tub. Carry on, everyone! [Life Of The Rich And Famous]
I am pretty sure Evan Dando — lead singer of the vastly important band, The Lemonheads — has not given a f**k since the ’90s, but even I was a tad surprised that he tweeted this photo following a gig in Arizona. In addition to partying with that handful of Jolly Ranchers in the corner (love those!), Evan also had a few lines of what looks to be cocaine ready to snort. I promptly sent the photo over to Julie to get her opinion on the matter, as she is Evan’s biggest fan, and she replied, “The worst part is, he drinks PEPSI. CRUSH OVER.” (Julie, like me, is firmly on Team Coke — that’s Coca-Cola, natch.) [Twitter]
Not that Evan actually cares what people think of the way he spends his off-hours, but he’s not the first celeb to be busted on camera in the company of illegal substances. Click onward for more!
It was good, it was bad — but it certainly wasn’t boring. From sex scandals to oddball marriages, sham weddings to sexting implosions, 2011 had something for everyone. Read on to see our most shocking celebrity breakdowns, political scandals and most surprising moments of the year. And tell us what you think the biggest scandal of the year was.
Chris Pratt, aka the husband of Anna Faris who you know from “Parks and Recreation,” is on cat lovers’ s**t lists. On Monday, he tweeted a photo of a big white fluffy cat along with the message, “Anyone in the LA area want a cat? Full disclosure, she’s old and prone to accidents. So sweet though. And was in Stuart Little. Literally.” Later he clarified that he and Anna were looking for a home for the 19-year-old cat because, “We have pugs and she’s too old to deal. She needs one on one attention.” He then shouted out to Amanda Knox, “So happy for you and your family!!! Want a cat?”
Obviously, this didn’t go over too well in the Twitter-verse. Which I understand. You can’t just replace an old cat with younger, cuter pups?!?! When you adopt a pet, you take care of it for life. It’s a serious commitment.
Apparently, the backlash has gotten to Chris. He took to his blog to clear up the situation.

Celebrity miscreants like Charlie Sheen get the lion’s share of the limelight. No one remembers the scandals of the little people, dammit! And yes, I mean literally, the little people. Dwarfism is well-represented enough in Hollywood that even they have their embarrassing scandals.
Let’s take a gander at Hollywood’s biggest little people scandals!
“It’s like a fairy tale. It is, it really is. I’m very happy, very happy after waiting for her for 15 years. Now I want to get beyond all this media hype that Tareq has put out there. It’s really quite embarrassing. … What happened was [backstage], she takes off her wedding ring, right in front of Tareq. And then she proceeds to come into my dressing room where I’m sitting down … And she looks down at me like she’s standing on stilts and says, ‘I love you. And that’s never gonna change.’ And when that happened I said, ‘Get over here! This has taken 15 years!’”
—Neal Schon, the guitarist for Journey who managed to pull Michaele Salahi away from party-crashing husband Tareq, tells the Daily Beast all about their courtship. Apparently, in the ’90s, Michaele was dating both Neal and Tareq but ultimately chose Tareq. Still, Neal and Michaele kept in touch and, over Labor Day weekend, he sent Michaele and Tareq VIP tickets and backstage passes to a Journey show. He says Michaele pledged her love for him then, even though it took another week before she officially left Tareq, boarded a plane, and joined Neal on tour. The two were photographed for the first time together yesterday and it appears that they can’t take their hands off each other.
After the jump, Michaele’s take on the whole thing Keep reading »
This is not one of those posts that’s going to make you feel all warm and fuzzy about mankind. And by mankind, I mean … men
. Apparently, Lauryn Hill
‘s long-term partner since 1996—Rohan Marley (yes, a son of Bob)—has left her. While she’s pregnant. With their sixth child. He has apparently left her for a model. A Brazilian model. By the name of Isabeli Fontana. Whom he is now living with. And while Rohan is allegedly denying paternity of this baby, 28-year-old Isabeli apparently has a son named Zion—which just happens to be what Rohan and Lauryn named one of their kids, too. Yowch. We wish Lauryn much healing in what is most likely a rough time. We also hope she’ll be back in the studio soon—we can’t help but notice that her time with Rohan corresponds with her time away from the limelight post The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
After the jump, other jerky guys who left their pregnant girlfriends and wives.
