If you’ve been hanging out in the ladyblogosphere, you’ve heard of Cat Marnell. Or maybe you know her as “Cat Marnell, ugh.” Cat Marnell was — until last week — the health/beauty editor at xoJane. More pertinently, though, she was an open, unabashed, self-described “pillhead” who frequently wrote about her drug use and abuse online. (As well as some other things.) She had been sent to rehab in April at the insistence of xoJane’s publishers. The New York Post reported on Friday that Marnell left xoJane, seemingly of her own choice, because she would rather pass the summer “on the rooftop of Le Bain looking for shooting stars and smoking angel dust with my friends.”
This morning, NYMag.com published an interview with Marnell with more of the same Cat-ariffic quotes. “I’ve always gone to rehab for the wrong reasons.” “ I’m just a fucking freak show.” “I spent Christmas Eve with Jane [Pratt] and Courtney Love.” ”I had drug bags pasted on the walls [of my apartment] because I collected dope bags.” And she goes into great detail about how she ended up parting ways with xoJane, which has something to do with losing her pills, crashing, her Internet being shut off so she couldn’t write posts, and forgetting her cell phone at the office.
Compelling reading? Cat always is. It’s not exactly a secret that people read her on xoJane for that ZOMG what the fuck did she just say now soundbite, not her questionable health or beauty advice (though her various product recommendations did fly off shelves). But as long as Cat Marnell’s been tearing up my RSS feed — and that of every other blog-reading woman I know — I’ve felt uncomfortable with rubbernecking this drug addict. Keep reading »
No, no, no, Lindsay Lohan is not going to be in a porn — her new co-star on a flick called “The Canyons” – has a long history in pornography. James Deen appeared in hundreds of adult films and as our own Julie put it, it’s all because of his “nerd appeal.” He and LiLo are expected to star in the thriller about twentysomethings on a “quest for power, love, sex and success in 2012 Hollywood,” written by American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis. Should be fun.
Now let’s get to know James Deen … in the most safe-for-work way we possibly can. Keep reading »
The truck driver who was involved in the hot mess of a wreck yesterday in Los Angeles is now insisting Lindsay Lohan bribed him to lie about what really happened in yesterday’s car crash! The story just gets juicier and juicier!
According to TMZ, the truck driver, known only as ‘James’ has come forward claiming the troubled actress tried to offer him money to keep his silence as to the details of the crash — because, apparently, he says Lilo tried to leave the scene! Read more…
Lindsay Lohan is acting again! The “reformed” party girl was snapped on the set of her upcoming made-for-TV movie, “Liz & Dick” — about the relationship between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton — and, by the looks of it, she’s really giving the part her all. Click on to see a few more shots (including a subtle nip slip)… [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
Wherever there is controversy, Kim Kardashian can be found close nearby whining, “Why are you not paying attention to me?” So naturally when Tanning Mom started grabbing headlines with her baked-to-a-crisp skin, Kim could not handle it. This weekend Kim tweeted a pic of super-tanned self with the headline, “The tannerexic [sic] mom has some serious competition!!! LOL”
But unlike the fake bake loving Tanning Mom, we think Kim at least had enough sense to brown her skin with spray tanner. (Right? Right?!) After the jump, 21 other celebrities who got a little overzealous with the spray tanner, too.
I don’t know what Rosie O’Donnell was getting all bent out of shape about. LiLo is perfectly “capable” of tackling the role of Liz Taylor. Thank you for helping us picture it, Photoshop. Let’s hope Lifetime can make this look happen for real. [WOW]
I’m just going to put it out there: Lindsay Lohan is no Elizabeth Taylor, and I, among others, find myself vaguely and inexplicably offended by Lifetime’s decision to cast her as such. It pains me to see anyone fanning the flames of the formerly great young actress’s delusions of grandeur, and being tapped to play such an icon is certain to balloon her already bloated ego. To be honest, though, what’s a cheesy Lifetime movie in the grand scheme of things, and really, I wouldn’t be surprised if it never even makes it to TV — Lindsay is notoriously shifty, with a penchant for lateness and unacceptable on-set behavior. She’s also played the part before, in a way, in a 2006 cover and editorial for Interview magazine shot by Karl Lagerfeld. That was a considerable amount of time ago, before the disastrous yellowing teeth and gratuitous face-altering, but if the photos serve as any evidence, Lohan is decidedly unfit for the role: she’s too angsty, too smoldering, too dark to suit the pensive, wide-eyed, almost-innocence that was Liz. Check out another photo after the jump, and tell me — are you buying Lindsay’s impression? Would you even be interested in seeing the Lifetime flick? Keep reading »
