David Cassidy, who found fame and fortune as a teen heartthrob on The Partridge Family, was arrested last night in Fort Lauderdale, FL on charges of drunk driving. Here is David‘s very unattractive mugshot … he got busted, y’all!
Former teen idol David Cassidy faces a drunken driving charge after a Florida Highway Patrol officer stopped him on a Fort Lauderdale, Florida, highway Wednesday night. Cassidy, 60, failed roadside sobriety tests and registered at .14 on an alcohol breath test, according to the arrest report. A reading of .08 or higher is illegal for drivers in Florida. The singer-actor “appeared to be somewhat confused” and was “very apologetic for having to be stopped,” the arresting officer said. Police found a half-empty bottle of bourbon under the seat of Cassidy’s Mercedes, although he told the officer he had only consumed a glass of wine with lunch several hours earlier, the report said. He told the officer he took a hydrocodone pill — a pain medication also known as Vicodin — about three hours earlier. The trooper pulled Cassidy over after his car left the roadway and went onto the shoulder rumble strip two times before cutting off another car at an exit ramp, the police report said. His publicist did not immediately respond to CNN requests for comment.
The fact that Cassidy blew a .14 on the breathalyzer is reason enough for his arrest but he got caught with a half-empty bottle of bourbon under his car seat? Yeah, I don’t know how his lawyer is going to be able to argue away this incident as a misunderstanding. It is so reckless and exceedingly dangerous to get behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated … I can’t even believe that anyone would drive around while drinking any alcoholic beverage. Are we supposed to believe that David Cassidy wasn’t drinking that bottle of bourbon while he was driving? I’m very curious to see if he is able to get himself out of this pickle of a problem he got himself into. Thank the gods that no one was injured.

Back in May we got to see a pretty hot pic of Bravo TV reality star Brad Goreski (the main gay on The Rachel Zoe Project) and today we get to see another hot pic of another minor Bravo TV reality star, this time from Flipping Out. Those of you who watch the show about scary-lipped and very OCD house-flipper turned interior designer Jeff Lewis might know that one of his employees is a skinny little twink named Trace Lehnhoff. Well, over the weekend Trace posted a photo of himself online that looks like it was meant for the NSFW photo site Guys With iPhones:
As you can see, Trace isn’t wearing very much in this photo so it’s unclear if this “outfit” was meant as a Hallowe’en costume or just a sexy self-portrait meant to garner a bit of attention. In either instance, you can check out the full-size semi-NSFW image after the jump … More »

Yesterday we got our first look at the official poster artwork for the new Cirque du Soleil show Michael Jackson: The Immortal Tour that will marry the pageantry of Cirque du Soleil with the iconic music of Michael Jackson. Today we get to see a few promo images that give us an idea of what the show itself will be like:
Michael Jackson’s estate has thrilled fans by unveiling the first images of acrobatic troupe Cirque du Soleil’s highly-anticipated tour marking his music legacy. Jackson’s estate executors signed a deal with Cirque producers to put on a stage spectacular featuring the “Thriller” hitmaker’s songs, after his tragic death in June, 2009. And on Wednesday, November 3, the new business partners unveiled the first images from the Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour, which is being billed as a combination of thrilling choreography and visual effects set to Jackson’s music. One set sketch features enlarged images of Jackson wearing his iconic Smooth Criminal white suit as acrobats and dancers explode from his body, mimicking his legendary moves. A new poster immortalises the star with the slogan ‘The legend lives on’. The tour, which has won Jackson’s mother Katherine Jackson’s personal approval, is set to kick off in Montreal, Canada in October 2011 and hit cities including New York, Miami, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Las Vegas – where it will reportedly be turned into a longterm residency featuring 3-D technology. Jackson’s estate and Cirque du Soleil producers will each own 50 per cent of the project and will equally share production costs. The estate will also receive royalties from the use of Jackson’s music and other property.
There is no question, Michael Jackson: The Immortal Tour by Cirque du Soleil has the potential to be a HUGE worldwide smash hit show. I can’t help but think of all the potential lost when MJ died so suddenly before he was able to perform even one show of his sold out This Is It Tour … my guess is that this new Cirque show based on MJ‘s music will be able to fulfill at least a bit of that lost potential. After the jump, check out a few more promo photos from The Immortal Tour and see what’s in store when the show rolls across North America starting next year … More »
English soccer star David Beckham, who has been living here in the US for the past 3 years, has revealed to the LA Times that he “hopes” to “one day” become a US citizen. Altho he is an Englishman “born and bred”, Beckham and his family are so happy here in the US that he is interested in becoming a naturalized US citizen. Earlier this week, Beck was spotted courtside at the Staples Center cheering on the LA Lakers basketball team, lookin’ very much like an acclimated American already:
The former England soccer captain – who moved to Beverly Hills in 2007 with wife Victoria and their three sons, Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight, and Cruz, five – has no plans to move back to the UK. Instead, he hopes to remain in America for as long as his family are happy living there, but insists he will never forget his English roots. Asked by the Los Angeles Times newspaper if he would like to get US citizenship, David – who was born and raised in London – said: “I hope so, one day. It would be nice. I’m English born and bred and that’s the way I’ll always be. I’m an Englishman, you know. “Our boys go to school here. As long as they continue to be happy here and my wife’s happy here, then we plan on staying.” Despite his love for America, the heartthrob sportsman wants to bring a little bit of England over to Los Angeles by opening a pub called The Queen Vic. David – who moved to the US after signing a deal to play for the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team – and his close friend, TV chef Gordon Ramsay, are planning to open a traditional English drinking establishment for the city’s expats. A source previously said: “David wants pie and mash, fish and chips and even chicken in a basket on the menu, just like the meals he eats when he’s in the UK.”
On behalf of everyone here in the US, I would like to say … WOOOOOOOOT! I don’t think it’s any secret to anyone even remotely familiar with the Beckham family that they are Yankee Doodle Dandies at heart. As soon as they made the big move to LA in 2007 they’ve really made themselves at home here and seem to really love everything about living in the US. News of Becks‘s desire to become a US citizen isn’t at all surprising to me … but it is very exciting :D

We are just a little over 2 weeks away from the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 in theaters (can you believe it?!) and the promo machine for the film is kicking into high gear for the last push leading up to the film’s opening. Deathly Hallows is featured on the cover and in the pages of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly and the film’s 3 lead stars — Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint — talk to the mag about life with Harry:
It’s the beginning of the end. The seventh and final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, has been split into two films, and the first installment will hit screens Nov. 19. (Part 2 will open on July 15, 2011). After a decade of playing the three young wizards waging a battle against Voldemort and the forces of evil, the three stars of the $5.4 billion franchise, all in their 20s now, spoke with Entertainment Weekly for this week’s cover story, reflecting on their childhoods inside Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy and discussing their plans for the future. EW’s Los Angeles Bureau Chief, Sean Smith, has been interviewing these actors — Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) — since the very first film, The Sorcerer’s Stone, and mines his 10 years of access and observations for this in-depth portrait of the three most famous kids in the world as they transition into adulthood and life outside of Potter.
Firstly, I cannot even believe it’s been 10 years since the first Harry Potter film was released. Where, may I ask, did the last decade go? Secondly, I cannot imagine what it must feel like for these young actors to spend half of their lives involved in something so big as the Harry Potter film franchise and then … just like that, it’s over. I know that there are many fans out there chomping at the bit to see the final Harry Potter films (as am I) but I can’t help but feel a little sad that the end is truly near. After the jump, read a bit more from DanRad, Emma and Rupert and their life with Harry Potter, after the jump … More »
Conan O’Brien, who will be premiering his new late night talk show Conan on TBS this coming Monday November 8, made a surprise visit to The George Lopez Show last night to do a little comedy bit with Lopez during his opening monologue:
Conan made a surprise visit to George Lopez and stopped by “Lopez Tonight” to say hi and to speak in his native tongue, Spanish and German. The celebration continued with a traditional Mariachi band serenade and a German tuba player as they toast to the new late-night lineup beginning Monday, November 8 when Conan join TBS at 11:00 PM ET/PT and “Lopez Tonight” will begin its second-season at Midnight on TBS.
Oh man, you can just tell … Conan is going to have a blast with his show on TBS. He and George Lopez seem to have a great working rapport and I would just LOVE to see the team of O’Brien & Lopez take the late night talk show world by storm. After the jump, check out a video clip of Conan‘s appearance on The George Lopez Show last night … More »
Ryan Reynolds is the latest hottie celeb to pay a visit and make an appearance on Sesame Street. In recent weeks, we saw cute videos of Colin Farrell and Jude Law on Sesame Street and today we get to see an even cuter video of Ryan on everyone’s favorite children’s TV show:

Jersey Shore phenom and Dancing with the Stars loser Mike The Situation Sorrentino is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Men’s Fitness magazine. As you can see, The Situation looks about as confused as to why he is on the cover of Men’s Fitness as I am … behold:
LOL … he just looks … dorky. Men’s Fitness usually does a great job when they choose the ripped and hot men to grace their covers … I really think they missed the mark this time. As much as I hate to admit it, The Situation does have fantastic abs … unfortch, they don’t look all that fantastic on this cover … they look airbrushed and fake. After the jump, check out one more silly photo of Sorrentino in Men’s Fitness magazine and read his 8 Fit Rules … More »
On Monday we got to see some pretty incredible photos of Tom Cruise filming a very intense and dangerous stunt on the world’s tallest building on the Dubai set of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol … and today we get to check out a couple more photos of Tom in action. While the photos we saw previously were snapped from afar, these new photos were snapped up close and personal:
There were some who did not believe that it was actually Tom Cruise that we saw in the photos before but there is no denying, it’s definitely him. These cool photos were snapped from inside the Burj Kahlifa building while Tom filmed his M:I 4 scenes. I gotta say, I’m still really damn impressed that Tom would choose to do this sort of very dangerous stunt work himself … that being said, I’ve always suspected that Tom was a little nuts — this is proof positive.
