When I was in high school I did all kinds of crazy things so I could see my boyfriend without my parents knowing. But now I go in and out the front door like a regular, stable adult. Apparently, Jon Gosselin still hasn’t gotten to that stage. In an interview with Life And Style, Jon’s most recent ex, Kate Major, said, “Jon said he couldn’t be seen having a girlfriend, so he told me to drive to a neighbor’s house after midnight, when the kids were asleep. He said he’d pick me up on his four-wheeler, take me to his house and drop me off again at 6 a.m.” The couple’s first time happened in a New Jersey hotel room, which Kate (shocker) paid for.

It’s okay, Jon, you aren’t the only sleazebag celeb who’s pulled stunts like this. Keep reading »
Former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche is proving, once again, that beauty pageants and scandals are great bedfellows. She is the second woman in the threesome “nude” tape featuring “Grey’s Anatomy” star Eric Dane and former Noxzema girl Rebecca Gayheart. But this isn’t Peniche’s first foray into sexytime territory. Nor is it her limelight debut. After the jump, the dirty deets about this messed-up girl. Keep reading »
Remember when journalist Rita Cosby’s tell-all, Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith‘s Death, hit shelves only two months after the buxom blonde’s death? Cosby alleged that Howard K. Stern, Smith’s former paramour, had an intimate affair with Larry Birkhead, Smith’s ex. Yesterday, a judge ruled that Stern could move forward with a defamation lawsuit. However, only 11 out of the 19 libelous statements made by Cosby hold weight, ruled Judge Denny Chin. The judge said the references to alleged homosexuality were not inherently defamatory: “I respectfully disagree that the existence of this continued prejudice leads to the conclusion that there is a widespread view of gays and lesbians as contemptible and disgraceful.” [E!

We knew Miley Cyrus’ brief pole dance at the Teen Choice Awards was going to spark a debate and, lo and behold, it has. Parent advocacy groups are up in arms, and blogs are crowing: “Miley Cyrus Does Her Part For the Pornification Of America.” In Newsday, child psychologist Wendi Fischer opined, “She’s sending the message that this is ‘OK’ to do, and I don’t think it is OK to do.” [Newsday] Keep reading »
Controversial celebrity sculptor Daniel Edwards has unveiled his latest work: a park-bench-sized statue of Angelina Jolie in the nude, double breastfeeding her twins. This artistic work of public indecency (she’s not wearing pants!) is called “Landmark for Breastfeeding” and was inspired by Jolie’s cover photograph on W magazine last year. Edwards decided that, in order to encourage more women to breastfeed and to raise global awareness of public nursing, he would depict one twin as African-American and the other as not, since that could totally happen in the real world. Beginning September 11, at Mainsite Contemporary Art Museum in Norman, Oklahoma, the piece will be on display, before it’s whisked off to an exhibition in London. [Capla Kesting Fine Art]
Though extremely odd, this is far from the strangest piece of art Daniel Edwards has sculpted. After the jump, how Edwards’ other celebrity pieces stack up to this latest magnum opus. Keep reading »
Mariah Carey’s next album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, hits shelves on September 15th. And it’ll be a lot bigger than your traditional CD. The album will come bundled with a 34-page magazine made by the folks at Elle. The ad section of the book, which covered the costs for this endeavor, will be home to lifestyle ads that reflect Mariah’s taste—Elizabeth Arden, Angel Champagne, Carmen Steffens, Le Métier de Beauté, and the Bahamas Board of Tourism. A second section of the magazine will contain articles all about Mariah, with “VIP Access to Her Sexy Love Life,” “Amazing Closet,” and “Recording Rituals.” The third part of the book will be your traditional liner notes, full of lyrics and images. The entire booklet will also be available in digital form, and an abridged version will be tucked into 500,000 copies of Elle’s October issue.
Sure, this is the first cross-platform collaboration of its kind. But isn’t this shill-fest taking things way too far?

We already knew “The Hills” was fake from that time Lauren Conrad told the ladies on “The View” that Spencer wasn’t on the other end of her apology phone call. Oh, and from that other time when L.C. wrote a book based on her experience on “The Hills,” and the characters weren’t sure if what they were going through was real or set up. But now, the show’s producers are totally slacking and not even trying to hide the fakery. Yesterday, a paparazzi photographer caught Kristin Cavallari flat-out reading through a “Hills” script with a producer before filming a clearly set-up romance between her and Justin Bobby. C’mon MTV, just so I don’t have to feel excessively guilty when I watch the next season, can’t you play pretend and at least attempt to cover up the phony reality? [NY Post] Keep reading »
Personally, I’m pretty excited about Guy Ritchie‘s upcoming “Sherlock Holmes” flick, starring Roberty Downey Jr. and Jude Law. From the preview, it looks pretty intense and I’m into the ninja thing that Sherlock has going on. But I became even more intrigued when Robert Downey Jr., said in an interview this week that in the movie, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are gay lovers. Downey Jr., who plays Sherlock, said that he and Dr. Watson (aka Jude) are “…two men who happen to be roommates, wrestle a lot and share a bed. It’s bad-ass.” [Metro UK]
