He is, apparently, one of the 99%
For the past week or so, a group of activists have been demonstrating against the US banking system with the launch of the Occupy Wall Street movement (a movement that has spread across the country to other cities as well). This week, Gossip Girl actor Penn Badgley joined the throngs of demonstrators in NYC to protest and voice HIS displeasure with the richest 1% of the people who arguably control the world. Click below to see a photo of Penn demonstrating with his homemade sign and read a bit about his participation in the Occupy Wall Street movement. More »
“He OD’d at least five times."
Last week we learned the scary news that Courtney Love managed to sign a publishing deal for her memoirs but it looks like we won’t have to wait long to read her frantic rants. Courtney is interviewed in the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine and she reveals that her late ex-husband Kurt Cobain tried to “kill himself three times” and that he “OD’d at least five times” … and for that, she would first “fuck him” then “kill him” for what he did to her. Classic Courtney Love. Click below to read an excerpt from her VF interview. More »
Becks Blows His Lid
I cannot claim to know everything about the sport of soccer but I think I have a pretty good understanding of the basic concepts and rules of the game. Soccer superstar David Beckham, on the other hand, prolly knows the ins and outs of the game better than most … and last night, during gameplay, he got really REALLY upset about a call made by a game referee. As you can see in the photos below, Becks got rootin’ tootin’ MAD … so made that he tugged on his shorts like a little boy throwing a temper tantrum … all of this in front of a stadium full of spectators, including his 3 young sons. It was quite comical. Check it out below and try not to laugh. More »
Apparently CNN correspondant and daytime TV talk show host Anderson Cooper grew up on another planet because yesterday on his show Anderson he finally succumbed and tried — for the first time, apparently — a few food items that he claims to have never tried before. If you can believe it, and I’m not totally sure that I do, Coop claims that he never tried coffee before … so he did so on camera yesterday. Click below to see what Anderson Cooper thinks of his first ever sip of coffee. More »

Is Our Dear Britney Promoting Gun Violence?
Early this week we got to see photos from the UK set of Britney Spears‘s new music video for her new single Criminal. As you may recall, those photos featured Britney and her loverman Jason Trawick engaged in “criminal behavior” as they ran around town brandishing guns. Today we learn that some folks in the town of Stoke Newington are upset that Britney appears to be “promoting gun violence” in an area affected by the recent London riots. HMMM. More »

The Sky is Falling ... For Reals
Okay … I don’t want to panic anyone but … the now defunct, 12,500-pound NASA Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) is expected to crash to Earth sometime today … this afternoon, in fact … and scientists are ALMOST POSITIVE that it will NOT crash in a populated area. For a couple of days now, I’ve been hearing about this satellite that is expected to fall back to Earth this weekend and for the most part, reports have maintained that the satellite is not expected to hit a populated area. But early this morning, on the local LA news, a scientist in El Segundo, CA made the claim that it is possible that pieces of the satellite might hit populated areas. HMMMM. Keep your heads up, y’all … cuz as Chicken Little warned us, the sky is falling. More »
"[I]t kind of weirds me out thinking about it."
Back in May we got our first look at the cover art for Levi Johnston‘s new book Deer In Headlights and today we get to hear from Levi himself as he promotes the book in a new interview with E! News. As you can hear for yourselves below, Levi explains to E! that Sarah Palin, the failed Vice Presidential candidate who also happens to be the grandmother of his child, used to have a “cougar crush” on him. Apparently, Johnston‘s friends would notice that Palin used to “flirt” with him. Ew. I mean … if you’re going to promote a book full of supposedly trashy Palin family details, what better way to do so than by claiming that your girlfriend’s mom used to hit on you. Wanna hear more? Click below — be warned, the video autoplays. More »

"It was traumatic. Absolutely traumatic."
While some of the Real Housewives of NYC endured their own fake drama over the weekend by getting fired from the Bravo TV reality series that made them famous, the MOST famous former castmember of all was enduring some very REAL and very scary drama of her own. While out on a boat ride over the weekend, Bethenny Frankel‘s boat went off course and was lost at sea … for hours! Fortunately for us, the Bravo cameras were on board so we will likely seen the footage at some point but judging by Bethenny‘s explanation of what happened … it sounds like it was a really traumatic experience, indeed.

And It is NOT a Pretty Sight
Brace yourselves, y’all … cuz what I’m about to share with you is … unsettling … to say the least. Rumor Fix was in this hiz this week at Dina Lohan‘s 49th birthday party in NYC and they managed to snap photos of Dina and daughter Lindsay Lohan sharing a kiss for the special occasion. But it wasn’t your run-of-the-mill sweet kiss between mother and daughter … the open mouth smooch looked, well, less than sweet. What’s worse is that Dina‘s youngest son Dakota Cody Lohan was seating right next to Dina and Linds while they made out for the cameras. Ugh, as if the poor kid hasn’t suffered enough being a Lohan. If you think you can handle it, check out the photos below. More »
