Bill Maher Can’t Handle His (Tila) Tequila


Revelation! Bill Maher is a d-bag. About 20 seconds into this clip of his “New Rule” routine, he says:
“New rule: stop acting surprised someone choked Tila Tequila! The surprise is that someone hasn’t choked this bitch sooner.

Oh no, he did not go there. Keep reading »

Jon Gosselin Shows His Sour Grapes On “Primetime”


Jon Gosselin apparently didn’t get the memo that if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Last week, he sat down with Chris Cuomo for an interview which airs tonight on “Primetime: Family Secrets.” (Excerpts are also on today and tomorrow’s “Good Morning America.”) In the interview, Jon didn’t hold back at all on his negative feelings towards Kate. “I can’t sit on a sofa with that woman,” he said. “I despise [her] because she’s not speaking from the heart.”

Jon says that throughout their marriage, Kate controlled him. “I was beaten down for so long, I couldn’t even make my own decision,” he said. “I was verbally abused.” The content of said abuse? She called him a “lame fish,” which, in the grand scheme of four- and five-letter words out there, doesn’t seem so bad. One of Jon’s other claims: that Kate took his wedding ring. He knows this because he put it down and now he can’t find it. He also claims that Kate only wears her ring as a sympathy ploy which, well … maybe. Overall, I wish Jon had learned a lesson from Anne Heche the other week — that dissing an ex is an art form that must be done with subtlety. So what do you think: Will this interview affect Jon’s status as a chick magnet? Keep reading »

The Tila Tequila And Shawne Merriman Plot Thickens

The Tila Tequila/Shawne Merriman incident of early Sunday morning is turning into a classic case of he-said, she-said. She says that she was at NFL player Merriman’s house at 3:45 a.m., when he choked her, knocked her over, and tried to hold her down. She called the police and, when they arrived, she signed a citizen’s arrest form. Merriman was taken into custody and released on bail seven hours later. [People]

But now Merriman is saying that’s not the whole story. Keep reading »

2009: Perez Hilton’s Year In Fights

Is it just me or has 2009 been “The Year of Ridiculous Fights” for Perez Hilton? Sure, his derogatory blogs are sure to annoy even the thickest-skinned celebrities, but this year he seems to be digging in and truly getting under some celebrity skin. Of course, he’s at it again—this time his opponent is Demi Moore. The issue? Some suggestive party pics of her 15-year-old daughter Tallulah Willis. I’m sure you can imagine where this one’s going. That’s right … a Twitter war.

“In The House” Actress Maia Campbell Rumored To Have Meth Problem

It’s always disconcerting when a once-promising actress totally loses it. (Hello, Natasha Lyonne.) The latest in the line is Maia Campbell, who once starred in the show “In The House” alongside LL Cool J. Back in March, a report surfaced on the site MediaTakout.com from a reader who claimed they’d spent the day with Campbell and that (a) she was living on Venice Beach (b) she hadn’t showered in a while and was begging for someone to wash her hair and (c) she couldn’t stop smoking meth. It was easy to think maybe the letter and accompanying photos were just a mean prank, but today a video surfaced of Campbell. And let’s just say that she doesn’t exactly look or sound sober in it. Rumors are also swirling that she’s been picked up for robbery and prostitution in the past year. If this is what’s going on, here’s hoping Maia is able to get help. Soon. [Gawker] Keep reading »

  • Security for the “Sex and the City” sequel has been beefed up because fans arrived for the first day of shooting as early as 7 a.m. “They looked more like they were protecting the President than Sarah Jessica Parker,” said an onlooker. [NYDailyNews.com] — Let’s hope these fans are out of work and looking for something to occupy their time.

Joe Francis Assaults A Chick. Again

Joe Francis is the guy we’d most like to vote off planet Earth. The Girls Gone Wild impresario (wait, I’m revoking this term since it includes the word “impress” and there ain’t nothing impressive about Francis) got in a scuffle last night at Guys and Dolls in Los Angeles, and allegedly assaulted a woman. And not just any woman—Jayde Nicole, Playboy‘s Playmate of the Year for 2008, who you know as Brody Jenner‘s girlfriend on “The Hills.” Here’s what supposedly went down, according to TMZ Keep reading »

John Mayer’s $25,000 Mugshot

Yesterday, after Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump was arrested for driving without a license, John Mayer admitted he’d been arrested for the same offense and then Twittered a challenge to Harvey Levin at TMZ: “produce my mugshot, [and] I will donate 25k to the charity of [your] choice.” He even gave a hint: “in the first half of the naughts, in the home of the Brave.” Mayer, it turns out, had been arrested in May 2001 in Atlanta (the case was dismissed the following month). TMZ did manage to score the mugshot, but The Smoking Gun beat them by about five minutes in publishing it. Still, John never said TMZ had to be the first site to produce the photo. So, true to his word, he coughed up $25,000 to be split between the two charities TMZ chose (Pet Orphans and Ace of Hearts, two animal shelters in California). Call it a creative publicity stunt, but I say it’s nice to see a celebrity arrest result in such a happy ending. [via TMZ] Keep reading »

Chris Brown Goes Clubbing After His Sentencing

Not that he’s doing anything right, but a few hours after Chris Brown was sentenced for assaulting Rihanna, he celebrated by heading to a Los Angeles club where he jumped up on a booth and did an impromptu performance of Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana.” One club goer said, “He not only sang, but danced his ass off. He didn’t seem to care at all that everyone was watching him. He was in a totally good mood, just hanging out with his buddies.” [Contact Music]

Well, of course he was in a good mood—he got out of this mess with no jail time, just 1,400 hours of community service and domestic violence classes. We think it was kinda tacky to make a scene after getting off easy for committing a heinous crime, but plenty of stars have found other ways to act inappropriately after escaping the clutches of the law.

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian Are, Like, Official Now

I hate it when celebrities think they can fool the public. Jessica and Nick not getting divorced? Yeah, right. Angelina and Brad not a couple? Good one, guys. So earlier this year, when rumors began to surface that LeAnn Rimes was doing the horizontal polka with Eddie Cibrian, her co-star in the lame Lifetime movie “Northern Lights,” we all shook our heads while both parties vehemently denied that anything was going on between them. I mean, they were both happily married to other people, so it couldn’t be true, right? RIGHT? That gig sort of worked, until Us Weekly posted a video that showed the pair kissing after a dinner together. Then Eddie’s wife left him. And People reported that LeAnn was no longer living with her hubby, Dean Sheremet. Now, how many months later, LeAnn and Eddie are finally ready to admit that they are actually together. A real shocker, right? Recently, they’ve gone on some very public dates, including one at a concert and another at the Valencia Country Club, where they flirted and golfed. Now, Eddie has, courteously, filed for divorce from his wife, Brandi, who said, “He’s just somebody I don’t know.” Conveniently, the divorce papers come right as news breaks that Rimes and Cibrian are taking off to Mexico for a romantic getaway. [People]

So what do you think? Should celebrities just give up the denial game when the tabloids surface something about them that they were hoping to keep private? Keep reading »
