Women In Denial: Oprah Sits Down With Denise Richards & Mrs. Ted Haggard


Yesterday’s episode of “Oprah” could have been subtitled “Women In Denial.” The talk show queen first sat down with Denise Richards, who spilled, oh, half the beans about her ex-husband, Charlie Sheen. Sheen was arrested on Christmas for allegedly assaulting his current wife, Brooke Mueller. Richards said Sheen called her from jail so he could wish their two kids Merry Christmas (Aww! Not.), but claims she didn’t inquire as to why he was in the pokey. Maybe because she could easily guess? Richards accused Sheen of being abusive during their very bitter divorce battle and even claimed she feared for her life. Richards told Oprah that Sheen was verbally abusive but that he never hit her, though she does admit he had pushed her — which qualifies as physical abuse in my book. While Richards was revealing more details than we’d known previously about their relationship, she still seemed weirdly … defensive of him, despite acknowledging that he has an obvious and reoccurring problem, one that he has continually denied inflicting upon her or Mueller. Even Richards’ father, who was in the audience, seemed frustrated that his daughter continues to “go back” to Sheen. Check out a clip of the interview above. Keep reading »

“American Idol” Contestant’s Mom Is Missing


This is Angela Martin, and there’s no one I’m rooting for more on “American Idol.” This is her third year auditioning. The first time around, she made it to Hollywood—except that tragedy struck a week before when her father was murdered. The next year, she had to leave auditions for a court date for a traffic violation. This year, she got a unanimous vote through to Hollywood. But now another horrible thing has happened. The day after Christmas, Angela’s mom never showed up at her sister’s house. She’s been missing ever since, though her car was found in a wooded area of a Chicago suburb. This is Angela’s last year of eligibility for “Idol,” so she’s pushing through and competing anyway. “The mothers, the other contestants, everyone has really, really held me up,” she says. “Music heals my soul and it heals my heart and I tell everyone, I have a Band-Aid on my heart right now.” We hope her mom is found—alive. And that she makes it far in the competition. [People] Keep reading »

Will Forte Dishes The Dirt On Heather Locklear And Tommy Lee


A while ago, we shared with you Kristen Wiig reading from Suzanne Somers’ book of sex poetry, from a reading series called “Celebrity Autobiography.” Here is Will Forte of “SNL” reading from The Dirt, Motley Crue’s autobiography—he picked a section by Tommy Lee about meeting Heather Locklear. Some interesting notes: They were introduced by his accountant, the brother of her dentist, which is very rock and roll? Also, Tommy was taken with her because she was not the kind of girl he could have group sex in a jacuzzi with. Awww. [Asylum] Keep reading »

This week is like the deli sandwich of new release Tuesdays, ’cause it’s jam-packed with meaty, juicy morsels of music! We got a new smokin’ Hot Chip record startin’ the dance party. The Magnetic Fields are here to polarize your heart. Charlotte Gainsbourg and Beck made some beautiful music together, and we hope that’s a double entendre — that would be a rad kid.

So, get ready to turn up the volume on those headphones ’cause, after the jump, we’re gonna take the latest tunes for a spin. Keep reading »

Indies Shmindies — We Want Chimp-Directed Movies!


Call them chimpanzees with a dream. Eleven chimps at the Edinburgh Zoo recently got the chance to make movie magic—they were given video cameras in boxes, complete with touch screens, and were trained to use them to film their own flicks. Yes, they got lots of footage of their toes and the camerawork is a little “Blair Witch Project”-esque, but they also managed to film lots of tender moments and drama. The final result, called “The Chimp Cam Project,” will be airing on the BBC soon. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

“Kell On Earth” Preview: This Show Is Going To Rule So Hard


We are OBSESSING over Kelly Cutrone‘s new reality show because not only does it look super intense and crazy, but it may be a lot closer to “reality” than most shows within this genre will ever get, especially when it comes to the fashion world. At NYC PR firm People’s Revolution, every day really is fraught with drama, and it offers a much less glamorous but ultimately more fascinating glimpse of the fashion world that’s a lot truer than anything you’d see on “Project Runway,” “America’s Top Model” or even, say, “The City.” Is it Feb. 1 yet?

Are Bejeweled Beetles A Creepy Or Chic Fashion Accessory?

Insects aren’t usually considered a must-have fashion accessory. But recently, a woman crossing the border between Mexico and Texas was stopped for her live beetle adorned with blue and gold jewels. The woman’s “brooch” was attached to her clothing with a gold chain and safety pin and was allowed to wander along her clothing. The beetle jewelry was seized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection for further identification.

Apparently, adorning live beetles with jewels and chains is nothing new. It’s been going on for decades, maybe centuries, and Jackie Kennedy reportedly had one decked out with emeralds. Keep reading »

Heidi Montag Does Yoga


Here’s the thing. I’m on Team Heidi. I like Heidi Montag. I’ve been watching her since the early days of “The Hills,” when she had a whole different face, she was Lauren’s BFF, and she was a newbie to the Hollywood scene. She was relatable — but she had a kind of cruel streak, like when she dumped her boyfriend for no reason other than she seemed to feel like it. This video? I don’t know. It’s just weird. I’ve done a lot yoga, but never have I done yoga like this. Heidi and her yoga instructor (?) strike a series of awkward poses, and Heidi evidences everything you’re not supposed to do in yoga. She seems more worried one of her implants is about to burst than getting into the yoga mindset. I always wonder what the deal is with stuff like this and her. You have to imagine that perhaps it’s Spencer behind the camera, shooting the weird-doll woman that (I suspect) he has pressured Heidi to turn herself into. In any case, it’s just sad. Right?

Octomom Debuts New Bod For Babies’ First Birthday


Today is the first birthday for Octomom Nadya Suleman’s octuplets and to celebrate, she’s debuting her new bikini bod (we’re sure it’ll be the babies’ favorite gift!). In an interview with Matt Lauer on “Today” this morning, Octomom claimed her post-baby bod is all-natural and she got it the old-fashioned way: lots of exercise. When asked if she’s had surgery, the trout-lipped mother of 14 quickly replied: “I will not do that!” In addition to regular exercise, Octomom also credits “good genes” for her ability to snap back into shape after carrying a litter of kids in her belly. I’m sure the help of several nannies doesn’t hurt either. [via MSNBC] Keep reading »
