The show will go on without Kidman and it will begin shooting in London this summer. Let the pregnancy rumors begin…
Shanna Moakler just resigned as co-executive director of the Miss California pageant. It’s been no secret that Moakler was not a fan of the anti-gay rights pageant queen Carrie Prejean from the start. However, after it became clear yesterday that the controversial contestant was keeping her crown, Moakler issued a statement saying she would not support Miss Cali.
Prejean almost lost her title when semi-nude pictures of her were released in recent weeks, violating her contract, in which she swore she had never posed topless. However, after a meeting yesterday, The Donald decided she would remain Miss California, and runner-up to Miss America.
Kate and Jon Gosselin of TLC’s “Jon & Kate Plus 8” have been dominating gossip magazines and web sites this week. Jon is accused of having an affair with a 23-year old woman after the two were caught on camera leaving a bar together. Now Kate is being accused of hooking up with their bodyguard! While the accusations against Kate don’t seem to have much merit, the new cover of People magazine seems to imply there is definitely trouble in paradise, and Jon may indeed have been unfaithful.
Many Americans have already seen Vanessa Hudgens naked. The actress, famous for a leading role in the “High School Musical” franchise and for dating co-star/heartthrob Zac Efron, has had nude photos of herself leaked in the past. Now, the Disney star says the public could get another look at her goods—this time on video.
The 20-year old has announced that in the future, she will happily strip on screen for the right role. She says: “I will show nudity in a film when the time is right. Right now, I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it. When the time’s right, if it’s an amazing movie that I’m really passionate about and that’s what it calls for, then we’ll see.” Until then, will she continue to just e-mail nude pics of herself to her crushes?
If you don’t know about pornstar/political activist/actress/brainiac Sasha Grey, it’s worth your time to Google her. Go research some of her work and decide whether she’s worth the trouble she is causing. Besides being called the dirtiest girl in porn, she’s getting into a war of words with the dirtiest voice on the airways, Howard Stern.
Grey, who is from Sacramento, is a well-decorated pornstar vet. As a rising star, Grey also appeared on the Tyra Banks show, made an appearance in the film Quit and will star in The Girlfriend Experience, directed by Academy-Award winning Steven Soderbergh. Critics give her performance praise, but radio-jock icon Howard Stern isn’t the feeling the sultry starlet.
Numerous websites are publishing a series of nude photos, showing the pop star Rihanna in compromising positions. I first glimpsed at the photos on Worldstarhiphop.com and they look pretty official. While playing “Birthday Sex” in the background, the video shows a slideshow of a female taking raunchy photos of herself. Not just full body shots, but the big money shots. They look like the kind of photos your girlfriend would send you if you guys were apart for a couple of months; if you’ve been lucky enough to have that kind of girlfriend.
Rapper 50 Cent goes all out in his beefs with other rappers. We’ve seen him time and time again go to many lengths to find one’s dirty laundry and air it out for everyone to see. Just ask Rick Ross. However, his beef with his ex went to the extent of 50 burning down his own house to get her out. Allegedly.
The 2008 inferno that claimed the $1.4 million mansion that once belonged to Mike Tyson is still under investigation. The fire nearly killed his ex-girlfriend, Shaniqua Tompkins and their son, Marquis. The two, along with four others, had to jump off the roof to escape with their lives. Tompkins, who has a tumultuous relationship with 50, said he started the fire to get her out of the house. At the time they were engaged in a fiery legal battle.
“When I was 10 years old, I was in an all girl hip-hop/rap group…My poor mom had to sit there with a straight face and watch us perform and we asked her to find us a manager.”- Nicole Richie
I remember when I was in kindergarten, all of the kids in my class wanted to be either doctors, lawyers and teachers. My special self wanted to be the Sun- yes, the giant flaming thing that beams down on us from above in the sky. Thankfully, my mom talked me out of it and told me it wasn’t such a great idea (thanks mom!) And thankfully, someone talked socialite Nicole Richie out of being a rapper- because like my previous career choice, it also wasn’t such a great idea.
So, what’s his excuse now? The nonchalant antics of Manny Ramirez and poor locker room etiquette have been met with the motherly-soft criticism of “Manny being Manny”. But, while his cockiness on the on the field and in the dugout left some wondering, the underlying truth was there all along. What else but steroids could have a baseball slugger so sure of himself.
According to the Sun Times, he was indeed shooting up, while he was playing the fool. MLB reacted swiftly with a 50-game suspension, knocking the left fielder out of the game until July. The Times reports that he’s expected to deny the allegations, saying the positive test stemmed from “personal medication” prescribed by his doctor. Yea, we know that; your medicine is just “performance enhancing”, which boils down to steroids how ever you want to word it.
It’s no secret that Shia LaBeouf, of Transformers and Eagle Eye fame, came from an interesting family. His Jewish mother was a ballerina turned visual artist and clothing/jewelry designer and his father was a Cajun Vietnam War vet who worked as a mime and a rodeo clown. In an interview with Playboy magazine, more interesting details are given about Shia’s unusual childhood—some more disturbing than others.
The 22-year old actor recalls how weird it was having his friends over when his mother would be walking around naked. “She’s in the middle of goddess-group time, where it’s literally a bunch of naked women tracing auras around one another’s bodies with incense and then sitting together humming for prolonged periods of time.”
