Seriously, what is it about gothy singer Marilyn Manson? Does he smell really good? Poop gold bricks? Because I can’t figure out why all these really attractive women keep letting them touch their boobs. Manson has dated a veritable basketball team of hotties: Rose McGowan, Dita Von Teese, Evan Rachel Wood, porn star Stoya Doll, “America’s Next Top Model” winner CariDee English — and his latest conquest seems to be Lana Del Rey, if the gossip rags are true. What’s his magic guys? You tell me.
We here at The Frisky are obsessed with “Downton Abbey,” so much so that we dreamt up an entire faux magazine dedicated to the Crawley clan and their assorted footmen, lady’s maids and butlers. Downton Glamour is our ode to the crazy world that exists inside “Downton Abbey” and the no doubt salacious gossip reads that might come out of the manor and its inhabitants. Check out our favorite “Abbey” mag headlines above and after the jump! [See larger version of image above here.] Keep reading »
Al Roker allegedly caused a stir on an American Airlines flight this week when he refused to give up his first-class seat so Alex Van Halen and wife could sit next to each other. What was his excuse? Oh, he claimed it was because he was allergic to dogs and changing seats would put him closer to a passenger traveling with a dog in a crate. Hmmm. Based on this photographic evidence, we’re not so sure that’s true. Then again, poodles are hypoallergenic. It was the Van Halens who saved the day. They quietly moved to business class. How very un-rock n’ roll of them. Why does it seem like famous people always cause the most travel trouble? Read on for a list of other celebrities who’ve had kerfuffles while traveling. [NY Post]
Before I worked at The Frisky, I did several years’ time in the weird — very weird — world of gossip magazines and tabloid websites. I know, I know, hard to believe there was life before The Frisky! But! I worked for several strange and sundry places (Us Weekly, OK! and TMZ among them) that make their money selling the American public on the latest news on the Kardashians, Hiltons and Lohans — or whomever else might happen to capture the public imagination at the moment. And because I spent some time in that world, I picked up a few things about how celebrity gets bought and sold and perpetuated. And in the spirit of the holidays, and because sharing is caring, I’m going to tell you, really, how the celebrity industrial complex manufactures your daily dose of craptacular celeb news, paparazzi shots and insider scoops.

I was very disappointed to hear that my favorite auto-tuned celebrity, Antoine Dodson (aka Bed Intruder), was busted for possession of marijuana yesterday in Hunstsville, Alabama. He was charged with misdemeanor possession, failing to appear on a traffic charge, speeding, and failing to have insurance. Tsk tsk, Antoine. Don’t you know to “hide ya weed”? I was rooting for him to get out of the projects, I really was. And what happened to his lovely weave? Come back to us, Antoine. [TMZ]

Prepare your references, Mary Poppins. According to nanny hopefuls, if you’d like to be in the employ of the Jolie-Pitt family, you’d better have some skills. For starters, you must have a college degree in education or child development, be able to act as a personal educator, speak at least two languages (including the language of origin of the adopted kids), and be willing to globe trot. And your salary? Anywhere from $50,000 to $150,000 depending on your charge. Yes, I said charge. Each member of the brood gets their own personal nanny. I wonder whose nanny costs the most. I’m guessing Shiloh because of her fashion demands. Any applicants? [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
Jealous of Khloe Kardashian’s color-coordinated shoe closet? I know I am salivating right now, so I can only imagine how Kim and Kourtney feel. Good god, that closet is a sight to behold. “I love all of my shoes! It is a must to have them color coordinated, and to be able to see each and every one of them. I know exactly where each one lives and I can tell if one has even been moved! It definitely helps to put one shoe facing front, and the other to the back. It saves space, but it is also nice to be able to see the back-side of the shoe. I am an organization freak!” Khloe told Elle magazine. The neat freak in me is kvelling. I’ve tried to organize my shoes but they always end up mismatched and all over place. Maybe it would be different if I had 75 pairs of Laboutins. Khloe may be the “ugly sister“(even though she’s hot by all standards), but more than makes up for it in the shoe department. We all have our strengths. [Elle] Keep reading »
According to Star magazine, Patrick Dempsey has a dirty little beauty secret. “He borrows fake lashes from his wife, Jill … He wears them all the time — even to his son’s Little League games!” says a mysterious insider. Gosh, I knew his lashes were looking fuller and lusher lately, but I suspected he was using an eyelash curler. I had no idea things had gotten this serious. I’m so concerned about him. His wife must be distraught. Are they serious? Come on, now. I could have made up something more titillating. Must be an extraordinarily slow news week in the celebrity world.

According to Star magazine, Brad Pitt has been caught in a “nude scandal” with his 23-year-old “Cogan’s Trade” co-star, Bella Heathcote. Allegedly, he was caught undressing the “Angelina-look-a-like” in his trailer by none other than Angelina herself. GASP! Initially, I thought she may be the seventh child Brangelina was adopting (hence the tattoo), but Us Weekly reports that Brad and Bella haven’t even met yet. They are both in the film, but haven’t shot any scenes together. The Aussie actress mentioned that she saw Brad half-naked in “Troy” and thought he was hot and hopes to play his love interest someday. If that’s a “nude scandal,” then I have been involved in many with Johnny Depp. Good work, Star. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
“[Reporter asks Kim Cattrall about a tip Page Six received that Kim had a bikini wax earlier in the day] That’s a stupid question. You’re a smart girl. How could you want to write that? … [Being a gossip reporter isn't] a respectable job. Why don’t you work at — what’s that news agency — Roybers? Reuters. Yeah, sorry, I’ve been drinking. What about writing for a blog? Then you can write about what you want [or] care about. … You didn’t see my film. Why are you even here?”
— Kim Cattrall is freaking hilarious when she’s knocked back a few. Also, good career tip on working for a blog. You totally do get to write about whatever you want, including posting funny drunk quotes from “Sex & The City” actresses. Congratulations, Kim, you’re now an honorary member of the daytime drunks club.
After the jump, Kim took a moment from dishing out career advice to talk about older roles for women in Hollywood: Keep reading »
