The Newsweek Latest Issue: Photo of Princess Diana

Seriously, Newsweek? We know sales have been abysmal and you were on the verge of going under a few months ago, but this seems like an extreme way to generate headlines.
The latest issue of this magazine features a digitally-altered photo of Princess Diana, imaging what she would look like at age 50, and places it alongside Kate Middleton, as if the two are old pals out for a stroll.
It's an eerie attempt to bring the dead back to life, and to put even more pressure on the beautiful head of Prince William's bride than already exists.
Newsweek Cover
Editor Tina Brown, who penned the cover story, says of her vision of Diana:
“There is no doubt she would have kept her chin taut with strategic Botox shots and her bare arms buff from the gym. Remarriage? At least two, I suspect, on both sides of the Atlantic.”
Hypothesizing about what this icon would be doing if tragedy hadn't struck in 1997? Juxtaposing a photoshopped version of her on the sidewalk with Middleton? Do you find this blatant attention-grab to be in poor taste? (Hilton Hater) 29 Jun, 2011

Tracy Morgan Returned to The Stage A Few Days Ago

Having apologized multiple times for his controversial stand-up routine in Nashville, Tracy Morgan returned to the stage a few days ago...
... and proceeded to get himself in more trouble.
Tracy Morgan in NYC
Performing in New York City, the 30 Rock star warned audience members not to "mess with women who have retarded kids" because "them young retarded males is strong. They're strong like chimps."

As the crowd groaned, Morgan joked about hooking up with "a cripple."
In response to these remarks, Peter Berns - CEO of The Arc, a nonprofit organization that serves people with intellectual and developmental disabilities - has issued the following statement:
"Tracy Morgan should apologize immediately. This quote is far too offensive to be excused as comedy, and it is very hurtful to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. Mr. Morgan has an incredibly powerful platform from which to fix this, and if he's learned anything in the last few weeks, he can't bomb this apology."
Should Morgan apologize for these new jokes? (Hilton Hater) 29 Jun, 2011

The Celebrities Involved Happened to be Chris Brown and Rihanna

Last night at the BET Awards, some lucky fans were chosen to present the viewer's choice award. Some serious awkwardness transpired.
Not only did the wrong person get it, the celebrities involved happened to be Chris Brown and Rihanna, with Drake thrown in no less.
Brown owned the BET Awards, taking home four honors, including the viewer's choice award. But it wasn't given to him initially ...

Chris Brown-Rihanna BET Awards Mix-Up
The lucky fan read the winner as "Chris Brown," only to recant it and say, "I'm sorry, the winner is Rihanna." The audience grumbled.
THEN, despite the fact that Rihanna's name appeared on screen one of the presenters chimed in again to award the honor to ... Drake.
Drake then appeared on stage to collect his trophy, giving a short speech and describing the whole thing as awkward. To say the least.
Presumably, at some point later, Brown was credited with the actual award ... but not before the entire process was thoroughly discredited. (Free Britney) 28 Jun, 2011

Kathie Leff Gifford and Kim Kardashian

Kathie Leff Gifford is privy to a vital piece of information. But, for a major change, The Today Show co-host isn't talking.
"I've been told a particular date," Gifford tells Pop Eater of the impending nuptials between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, adding that she and husband Frank Gifford are definitely attending.

A peek at the couple's extravagant registry reveals that October 31 is a likely date for the ceremony, but sources now say Kim and Kris are looking at "private estates in Los Angeles" and the wedding could take place as early as August.
You also won't believe this, but the event will be a big deal.
"Momma Kris wants time to plan and prepare and make sure the entire family has time to enjoy getting ready for the big day...  she fully intends to make sure every detail is just perfect," says a friend, adding of the two-hour E! special: "Kim really wants her fans to make her lots of money celebrate with her on the most important day of her life."

Dr. Conrad Murray in Michael Jackson Case

Dr. Conrad Murray is reportedly adamant that he will not accept a plea bargain of any sort in the Michael Jackson involuntary manslaughter case.
Sources say Dr. Murray feels so strongly about his innocence that even a plea offering zero jail time would be out of the question on principle.
Not that the L.A. County District Attorney is bending over backwards to offer such a thing. Prosecutors believe they can and will win the case.
Dr. Murray PhotoMike Jack
Dr. Murray's defense revolves around the fact that only two people were in the room around the time Michael died, those being Murray and Jackson.
The doctor insists he did not administer the fatal dose of Propofol.
His lawyers' theory: Murray left to go to the bathroom, a frustrated MJ woke up, administered Propofol on his own, overdosed and killed himself.
As for why he was providing Propofol to start with, Murray hopes MJ's last rehearsal footage will show "warning signs" that he was a lost cause.
Michael Jackson passed away two years ago today.

On the second anniversary of Michael Jackson's death, 13-year old singer Greyson Chance has paid tribute to The King of Pop.
In a newly-released video, Chance covers "I Wanna Be Where You Are," a single Jackson included on his debut album at the same age. Greyson, meanwhile, will release his first CD on August 2.

Chris Brown Has Been Under Considerable Fire This Week

Chris Brown has been under considerable fire this week, and really since he assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. People will not give the dude a break.
Given his frequent blowups - most recently a gay slur against photographers he thought tipped off police about his illegally parked car - you can see why.
Chris did apologize, sort of, for that incident, but it's clear he's just as upset that he's being criticized for it as he is at himself for uttering it to start with.
In a string of Tweets last night, he writes: "This will make things a whole lot easier. If you don't like/support me then don't listen to my music (sic).
"Latching on to my every word and criticizing makes you look thirsty. I can't even piss without somebody complaining. Imagine how I feel (sic).
"A person should not have to apologize every second for living life (sic)!"
Perhaps some are too quick to jump all over him, but at the same time, he brings a lot of this on himself by calling people gay, throwing chairs through windows and the like. Work on the anger, Chris. Then people will chill.

Bonnie Wright celebrate the conclusion of Harry Potter

Bonnie Wright is celebrating the conclusion to Harry Potter with a makeover.
The 20-year old actress, who is engaged in real life and (spoiler alert!) gets married to a certain main character in that franchise, covers the upcoming issue of Haute Muse. And she does so in a mature manner.

"I've always just loved fashion that's a bit more of a performance," Wright says. "I think what's enjoyable about shoots is you can get away with things you've dreamed of wearing but are not necessarily able to."

Caylee Anthony Could Climb into Swimming Pool Herself

A day after Cindy Anthony stunned the courtroom by claiming she was the one who performed incriminating searches on the family computer, she was back testifying on behalf of her daughter, Casey Anthony.
Today's revelation was nearly as shocking, as Cindy testified that Caylee Anthony, who was found dead in 2008, could have accessed the family swimming pool herself - supporting a key Casey Anthony defense claim.
CIndy Anthony Pic
Cindy told jurors that she returned home from work on June 16, 2008, to find the pool ladder had been left standing against the pool, ready for use.
"I thought it was strange," she said. "I told my co-workers about it."
Defense attorney Jose Baez showed Cindy several pictures of 2-year-old Caylee and the Anthony's above-ground pool. One of the pictures showed Caylee climbing the three-rung ladder into the pool with the help of Cindy.
The pictures caused Cindy Anthony to cry, while Casey Anthony also wiped her eyes with a tissue as her mother told the court the following:
"She could climb into the pool by herself," Anthony testified, explaining that they swam together every day. "She was anxious to get in."
"We took extra precaution every day to keep the ladder off the pool," Cindy added. "We taught Caylee she had to be with us to swim."
The defense then showed a picture of Caylee opening the sliding glass door that led to the pool, asking "Could Caylee open the door?"
"Yes, she could do it herself," Anthony answered.
The defense says the case against Casey Anthony, who prosecutors say murdered Caylee and dumped her body in the woods, is thin.
Her attorney has posited that Caylee drowned on her own, and that Casey only lied about it due to severe psychological duress.
Casey Anthony could get the death penalty if convicted. (Free Britney) 25 Jun, 2011

America's Got Talent

The auditions on America's Got Talent continued to hobble along last night, this time in New York City, where the freaks were out in full force.
Just imagine how paranoid Howie must have really been paranoid about germs, as he emerged from a zorb. That was one of the highlights of an otherwise mediocre evening...
Unimpressed Host
Tomorrow's Contenders?
Snap Boogie - The street performer had the perfect sob story and the right song to fit his character (overcoming obstacles with the joy of dance). We've seen a lot of breakers, but I was genuinely impressed by his whole routine. I can see how he would increase his difficulty level for the following competition rounds.
Michael Turco - There was something about the magician that reminded me of a combination of Donny Osmond and Billy Crystal. The best thing about his routine was the sheer speed that he transitioned between the girls. That's probably the coolest misdirection I've seen.
ELEW - I liked the whole arm bracelet thing, but there were a handful of sour notes being hit because of the way he was slamming his keys. I did love the interaction with the piano innards, yet I wished he had a bit more control. I really didn't think that "Sweet Home Alabama" was the best choice for him though.
Yesterday's Talent?
Riley Schillaci - Not only did the sword swallower give us enough gag reflex jokes through her dry interview, she hammered a drumstick into her mouth. I did like the hula hoop and Nick's interaction, but I would prefer to see yesterday's Captain.
Steven Retchless - The "polefessional" dancer was not only amazing, it was really gay. I don't know how else to describe it. Steven has some of the best speed I've ever seen in his turns and he can definitely out dance the fire pole dancer we saw previously.
Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. - There's a part of me that couldn't support him just because he placed his gum in his pocket. I don't think anyone would expect him to have a crooner’s voice. He was good, but there were a lot of singers this year, he'll probably get trumped by a youngster.
No Talent
Triple Threat - I knew it was going to be a bit downhill when they said that they were performers from an Amusement Park. The whole thing screamed low budget county fair.
Joel "the Cannon" - Competitive eating is not a Vegas talent, but I would love to see him attempt a hot dog challenge.
Totally Underestimated
Boston Typewriter Orchestra - I actually didn't think that the group sounded like noise. They had an original concept and I'm surprised they could even find typewriters in our computer based society. (Radio Blah Blah) 23 Jun, 2011

So You Think You Can Dance

Following a shocking non-elimination last week, the pressure increased for the 20 remaining contestants last night.
Along with Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, Debbie Reynolds sat in on the So You Think You Can Dance panel. Unfortunately, she thought everything was amazing and wanted to bring all the dancers to her home for some unknown reason, even those who struggled to earn passing grades...
Melanie Moore and Marko Germar
Ryan & Ricky: Jazz (Mandy Moore) - Mandy wanted a sexual jazz routine and "Roderick" didn't seem like the type that would fit. While Ryan was sexy, there was something I didn't believe about Ricky involving their supposed sexual tension. Ryan had the right amount of camera mugging with partner eye contact and her leaps into Ricky were done with confidence. There were a few movements that Ricky did that were too feminine. My Grade: B-
Caitlynn & Mitchell: Stacey Tookey (Contemporary) - The story was supposed to be an insecure girl wanting to leave her man. I liked the use of the props and the angle the camera kept for the beginning of the routine. I was amazed by Caitlynn's fearless leaps. Unlike Ricky, I believed Mitchell's character, possibly because he was given stronger choreography. You knew the dancers were into the routine when Mitchell accidentally punched Caitlynn in the face. My Grade: A
Missy & Wadi: Cha-Cha (Jean Marc Generaux) - Jean Marc didn't give any storyline, except for the fact that his cha-cha was difficult and supposed to be sexy. It was interesting that they wasted time tutting in the beginning. The cha-cha started a bit slow at points and Jean Marc tried his best to cover up the fact that neither were that good. There were definite areas where you could see the contestants thinking about the moves, especially Wadi. He showed fear in his eyes. It's a shame that Missy was lumped with him. My Grade: C+
Iveta & Nick: Bollywood (Nakul Dev Mahajan) - Nakul continues to increase the difficulty of Bollywood routines. I liked the silhouette in the beginning and the lift was graceful. I was impressed by both Iveta and Nick since Bollywood was far from their comfort zones, it helped that Iveta was in tune with her hips. Their synchronization could have been a bit better at points, but it may have been easier caught because of their height difference. The lift sequences at the end were amazing. My Grade: B+
Miranda & Robert: Hip-Hop (NappyTabs) - The dance was supposed to be about two woodpeckers and there was a lot of double entendre running through my head. I liked the pauses in the beginning, but the two needed to hit a bit harder. Miranda wasn't believable and she didn't have a street dirtiness about the dancing that Robert had. Miranda's stumble was pretty bad and I felt like the judges were trying to cover up the fact that she messed up. My Grade: C
Clarice & Jess: Contemporary (Stacey Tookey) - Stacey provided an easy storyline involving a prince and princess; the big challenge was the lifts. The routine had a good flow between moves and most of the lifts didn't seem that bad. Their side by side movements were really beautiful and I think that Clarice really brought the quality level up for the two of them. My Grade: B+
Jordan & Tadd: Viennese Waltz (Jean Marc Generaux) - The Viennese waltz emphasizes space and grace. This routine was definitely easier to fake than the cha-cha because it was mostly in hold. The lifts were done well and the couple did attempt a decent rise and fall. The routine had a nice flow, but there was something about the routine that was a bit forgettable; I blame David Cook. My Grade: B+
Melanie & Marko: Mandy Moore (Jazz) - We got another bowler hat jazz routine. The thumping beat of the song helped me like the routine more. The two had a nice confidence about them and the lifts were strong. The hat work was interesting, though Marko dropped his hat at one point. He managed to recover right before the routine's biggest jump routine. My Grade: A-
Sasha & Alexander: Hip-Hop (NappyTabs) - The routine was about a soldier and his wife reconnecting. We've seen similar with Katee & Joshua's "No Air" routine and it always was emotionally moving. The routine started really cool with Alexander's slow walk and Sasha proving why she should make the top ten. I really liked the head-flip on Sasha's back. The two really got into character and it made the routine more believable. My Grade: A
Ashley & Chris: Broadway (Spencer Liff) - The whole routine was supposed to be done behind bars and have that sexual tension. Chris started upside down and his slow descent had amazing arm strength. I really liked the routine and I loved how the two managed to still have their hands connected. The cameras were having a lot of fun circling around the whole routine. I didn't even notice that Ashley lost her glove. My Grade: A+ (Radio Blah Blah) 23 Jun, 2011

Ryan Dunn was Drunk

A toxicology report indicates that Jackass star Ryan Dunn was drunk when he crashed his Porsche on a Pennsylvania highway and died Monday morning.
Not only that, he was driving extremely fast, possibly up to 140 m.p.h.
Dunn, 34, died along with his friend Zachary Hartwell, 30, from West Chester, Pa. Both men suffered "blunt and thermal trauma" in the crash, which turned Dunn's car into a fireball, according to the autopsy report.
Ryan Dunn Pic
Authorities say the toxicology results put Ryan Dunn's blood alcohol concentration at 0.196 percent. The Pennsylvania legal state limit is just 0.08.
Before the crash that took their lives, the two men had been in a bar in West Chester. Dunn had even Tweeted a photo of them drinking.
"The initial crash reconstruction investigation determined that Mr. Dunn's vehicle was traveling between 132-140 mph at the time of the collision," West Goshen Police Chief Michael Carroll said in a statement.
It's all very tragic. It also reinforces Roger Ebert's point - however poorly timed and worded it may have been - about drunk driving (and speeding).

Evidence in Car of Casey Anthony

Many (if not most) trial observers believe that accused murderer Casey Anthony is indeed guilty of killing her two-year-old daughter Caylee.
Some of the physical evidence against her is less than overwhelming, however, according to a Casey Anthony defense witness testifying today.
The air in Casey Anthony's car trunk contained chemicals associated with human decomposition, but didn't conclusively prove a body was there.
Casey A.
Dr. Michael Sigman, a professor at the University of Central Florida, said Casey's trunk showed traces of gasoline, chloroform and other chemicals.
However, those readings were all low, and said chemicals also are linked to onions, cabbages and Clorox, among other things. So ... it's tough to say.
As a result, Sigman told attorney Cheney Mason, "I cannot conclusively determine that there had been human remains in the trunk of the car."
This comes after prosecutors strongly suggested there were.
Prosecutors in the murder trial in Orlando had called several experts who concluded that based on the air samples, a strand of hair, insect activity and the reaction of cadaver dogs that a body was in fact in the Florida mom's car.
Among several other witnesses who took the stand at the trial today was Madeline Montgomery, a forensic toxicologist for the FBI.
She testified that she found no evidence of drugs – including calming medications Xanax and Valium – in hair presumed to be Caylee Anthony's.
But she also acknowledged she could not test the hair for chloroform, which was one of the ways prosecutors say Caylee was murdered.
Casey Anthony, 25, faces the death penalty if convicted.

Chris Brown Drops Gay Slur?

Chris Brown sweet-talked his way out of a parking ticket yesterday ... but the way he talked to cameramen may have been anything but.
It's not clear from the video below if it was Chris or his bodyguard who said it, but according to TMZ, Brown accused several cameramen of alerting some parking enforcement personnel that his car was illegally parked, ranting:
"Y'all n**gas is weak. You all call them to try and film me? Y'ALL N**GAS IS GAY!"

Chris Brown Drops Gay Slur?
Did Brown utter that quote? Again, it's hard to tell from the clip above. But if he did, he can expect calls for him to apologize pretty fast.
For what it's worth, in December, C-Breezy got into a Twitter feud with Raz B and made several homophobic comments in the process.
On an unrelated note, he did not get a ticket at least. (Free Britney) 23 Jun, 2011

Caylee Anthony's Father Still Unknown

In a murder case full of mysteries that have captivated the public, one of the biggest of all - the identity of Caylee Anthony's father - is STILL unclear.
In court on Thursday, defense attorney Jose Baez elicited gasps as he implied that Casey Anthony's own brother, Lee, could be the father of daughter.
The suspicion had enough merit that the FBI tested Lee Anthony to make sure he was not the father of Casey Anthony's slain daughter. He wasn't.
Crying in Court
Nevertheless, the mystery of Caylee's father goes back to 2005, when Casey Anthony was pregnant - from a one-night stand, she told a neighbor.
According to police, she told Brittany Schieber she was seven months along before she realized she was pregnant and didn't know who the dad was.
Shortly after getting pregnant, Anthony started dating Jesse Grund. As the two grew closer, Grund started assuming the role of a expectant father.
In 2009, Grund said that he knew the timing of conception wasn't quite right, but that he thought it was "possible" that he could be Caylee's dad.
"For the first year or two of her life, I was dad," he said. "I was the father figure in her life, and I loved her more than anything. She was amazing."
"I had never been a father before."
After DNA disproved Grund's being Caylee's father, he was devastated: "That was really hard, because I just assumed that she was mine ... I loved Caylee so much, and finding out she was someone else's daughter was hard."
Even Anthony's close friends are clueless here.
Asked about paternity in 2008, Anthony's friend Lauren Gibbs told detectives, "Um, well, at first I thought it was Jesse. I don't know his last name."
"But then she told me later it was not and that it was somebody in the Army or something like that. But then she told me he died in a car accident."
Casey's mom, Cindy Anthony, seemed to agree with the car crash theory. "Caylee's father was in a terrible car accident," she said. "He is deceased."
Jesus Ortiz was a 21-year-old who dated Casey before he died in 2007. After he was named as Caylee's possible father, Ortiz's family was stunned.
"Miss Anthony never told the family Jesus might be the father," they said in a statement. "The family has never met her and does not know her."
Now that Caylee Anthony is gone, the matter of her paternity could always remain a mystery in a case with no shortage of unanswered questions.
Lawyers began laying out Casey Anthony's defense last week. (Free Britney) 20 Jun, 2011

Tracy Morgan Meet with Bullied Youths

Roland Martin may not think Tracy Morgan has to apologize for his anti-gay rhetoric last week, but the actor himself is sounding truly contrite about his infamous routine in Nashville on June 3.
"I know how bad bullying can hurt," Morgan told Marc Malkin of E! News. "I was bullied when I was a kid. I'm sorry for what I said. I didn't mean it. I never want to use my comedy to hurt anyone. My family knew what it was like to feel different. My brother was disabled and I lost my father to AIDS in 1987."
Tracy Morgan in a Car
The 30 Rock star says "gay people deserve the same right to be happy in this country as everyone else. Our laws should support that." And he will be doing all he can to ensure these words don't ring hollow.
Later this week, Morgan will sit down with gay teens who have been cast out by their families; he will also speak to those who have lost a loved one due to anti-gay violence.
Moreover, the comedian will head to Tennessee next week and meet with GLADD - one of the organizations that challenged him to apologize - to take part in a press conference that protests the state's recent passage of a bill that bars discussion of homosexuality in classrooms prior to ninth grade. He'll alo shoot a PSA.
It's nice to hear that something good might come from the mess Morgan created. (Hilton Hater) 14 Jun, 2011

Charlie Sheen is Planning A Major Career Move

Charlie Sheen has remained relatively quiet over the last few weeks. But might that be because he's planning a major career move?
Insiders tell TMZ the actor is entertaining a "big offer" to anchor a sitcom that would debut on broadcast television as soon as January 2012. The troubled star is allegedly in "deep negotiations" for a deal that would not even require a pilot.
New Sitcom Star?
Sheen has not said much publicly since predicting the demise of Two and a Half Men in in mid-May.
Any network might receive some angry letters if it hired Sheen, but is there any doubt viewers would tune in for his new show? Would you watch it?

Pippa Middleton and George Percy Together Again

Pippa Middleton and George Percy, her ex-boyfriend, have been seen together a lot recently. Will they get back together amid her breakup with Alex Loudon?
The younger sister of Kate Middleton was all smiles last Wednesday evening as she grabbed dinner in central London with a familiar, handsome fellow.
George Percy dined with Pippa, then headed back to his apartment. The next morning, she was reportedly seen leaving Percy's flat with a hug and kiss!
Pippa Middleton and George Percy Picture
Pippa and George Percy were also seen last month in Madrid, Spain (see above), in the weeks following the royal wedding of Kate and Prince William.
The son of the Duke of Northumberland (one of England's richest men), George Percy is a college friend of Middleton and now a co-worker of hers.
Reports say Pippa took a job at Percy's geothermal energy firm.
The two were the subject of romance rumors even before the news that Middleton and Alex Loudon, her financier beau of over a year, have split.
As of late last month, a Middleton pal said she and Percy remain platonic: "She loves George, but only as a best friend. They'll always be mates!"
We'll see if that holds true in the coming weeks and months.

Jessica Simpson: The Next Big Fashion Brand

Jessica Simpson's got a new fiance (Eric Johnson) and now a new job - as a celebrity mentor on NBC's Fashion Star. Yep, that's a real show.
The 30-year-old's singing career has petered out and her acting career never really took off, but her fashion line is remarkably successful.
With a brand worth an estimated $750 million in 35 countries, Simpson will join Elle MacPherson in a search for the next big fashion brand.
Air Head
"NBC is delighted to work with singer, designer, actress and pop culture icon Jessica Simpson," the network said in a statement.
"With an almost billion dollar lifestyle brand under her belt she is sure to be an excellent mentor to our up-and-coming designers."
"I'm in the workroom in [L.A.'s] Westwood a few times a week from 11 to 7 at night," says Simpson of her chic but affordable line.
"Nothing goes out without me seeing it or my mom [Tina Simpson, Jess' co-creative director] seeing it," says the former Nick Lachey spouse.
Fashion Star's premiere date is TBA.

Tori Spelling Involved in A Car Accident This Morning

Tori Spelling has a good reason to be angry today.
The actress, who is pregnant with her third child, was involved in a car accident this morning, one she blames on a paparazzi who was following her and her children.
"Paparazzi chased me w/the kids 2school," the actress Tweeted. "I was trying to get away from him and had a pretty big accident. Took down whole wall of school."
Tori Spelling Photograph
Neither Liam, Stella nor Spelling's unborn child were harmed in the crash, which took place because a photographer followed Spelling and her family into the driveway of a school; when she reversed to get away from the troll, she slammed into a wall. Minor damage was done to the vehicle.
"Tori is really shaken up but she and the kids are doing fine," her rep tells People. "She's going to the doctor for a checkup."

The Real Housewives of New Jersey - Teresa Giudice

Attention, viewers of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Teresa Giudice has a message for you:
Why the heck are you wasting an hour of your life every week watching the scripted drama between a group of wealthy, self-centered, spoiled women?
Just kidding. The star of this franchise actually took to her blog today and attempted to shoot down rumors that she and husband Joe are in serious trouble. She wrote:
A Happy Marriage?
Teresa and her friends lost nine points this week.
Joe and I are not getting a divorce. We aren’t separated; never have been. We are happily married. I love him as much as the day we got married. My kids are wonderful. Yes, Gia cried in school one day, but everyone’s been really sweet to her since then and she’s tough, like her mom. I’m so blessed to have my beautiful family!
Teresa also wrote that she feels bad for Kim Kardashian in the face of Bret Lockett claiming the two had an affair, while also addressing the topic of her relationship with her brother and sister-in-law:
I love my brother and would do anything to have him in my life full-time again. We were so close growing up, and the more time that passes like this, it just breaks my heart. And it is tearing my parents up. We’re their only kids. But I am at a loss when it comes to Melissa. Clearly we can’t be a family if she doesn’t want us to be, and I’ve tried everything I can think of to love her, accept her, forgive her, apologize to her... what am I missing?
Hmmm... any kind of shame over how you make a living and exploit your family? Just a guess on our part. (Hilton Hater) 14 Jun, 2011

Nadya Suleman Pictures Have Been Dashed

Your dreams of smoking hot, wet, soaped up Nadya Suleman pictures have been dashed, guys. Octomom's bikini car wash for next weekend is off.
Her manager says the event, which was organized to help Nadya raise some cash for the mortgage payments she is once again behind on, is dead.
Why? Because the deal they had with the Melrose Strip Auto Detailing went south when the location wanted $13 of every $20 they were charging.
Point, Octomom
That is a pretty steep ass commission. Also, Nadya and her porny pals - January Gessert, Capri Anderson, Tila Tequila and Violet Kowal - had to bring their own soap and towels to the bikini car wash!
Nads' manager says she's looking to reschedule at an alternate location.

Reggie Brown: Barack Obama Impersonator

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson is one of many people seeking the Republican nomination for president in 2012, and his campaign is underway.
What better way to prep than by debating ... a Barack Obama impersonator?
Johnson recently appeared on Fox Business Network's "Media Matters for America," where host John Stossel moderated a debate between Johnson and a (pretty decent) President Obama impersonator, Reggie Brown ...

Reggie Brown: Barack Obama Impersonator
Very interesting. On one hand, Brown reiterates Obama talking points awfully well. On the other hand ... what the HELL goes on over at Fox News?
Their ticker gets hacked. They use photos of Tina Fey instead of Sarah Palin. They employ Sarah Palin. Now this, perhaps the most absurd of all.
Not that Gary Johnson is a serious candidate anyway, but how can anyone take him halfway seriously after this ridiculous debate with Faux-bama?
Seriously. We keep expecting to hear "Live From New York ..." (Free Britney) 14 Jun, 2011

Dianna Hart de la Garza Has Now Entered Rehab

Like daughter, unfortunately, like mother.
A few months after Demi Lovato exited a treatment center to deal with issues related to Bipolar Disorder, sources tell The New York Post that her mother, Dianna Hart de la Garza, has now entered rehab.
Happy Demi Lovato
"It has been a tough year for Demi, and her mom has been a constant source of support. But fame has also taken its toll on her family... her mom could take some time to deal with her own issues," an insider told the newspaper.
Lovato has also split with Wilmer Valderrama, who she started seeing in February.
"The age difference meant they were in completely different places in their lives," said a source, referring to the 13-year gap between the celebs.

UPDATE: Reports now indicate that Lovato's mother has actually completed rehab and is back with her family. No word yet on the reason behind the program. (Hilton Hater) 14 Jun, 2011

Casey Anthony Killed: There was Heart-Shaped Residue

A physical scientist and forensic examiner testified today that there was heart-shaped residue on the duct tape over the mouth of slain Caylee Anthony.
"It was approximately the size of a dime," Elizabeth Fontaine testified as the murder trial of Casey Anthony, Caylee's mother, continued this morning.
"If you wore a band aid for an extended time, then take it off, there would be glue residue and debris. That's what this looked like, but heart shaped."
Casey Anthony on Trial
The state, which says Caylee was murdered, plans to introduce evidence that similar heart-shaped stickers were found in Casey Anthony's home.
Some evidence at the trial has been enough to make Casey Anthony sick. But one thing was missing from the tape: fingerprints of the toddler's killer.
The FBI believes the fingerprints vanished when Caylee's body was outdoors in the months before she was found in the woods near her home.
"Fingerprints are fragile," Fontaine said. "It's not surprising there were none."
In cross-examination, defense attorney Jose Baez criticized the sticker evidence.
"When you examined it a second time, it was gone," Baez said. "Is that correct?"
"It was no longer visible," said Fontaine, who noted that other FBI agents had tested the duct tape in the meantime while investigating the case.
The trial is entering its fourth week, and the prosecution says it will wrap up its case soon. Casey Anthony faces the death penalty if convicted. (Free Britney) 14 Jun, 2011

If There's Any Place on The Planet Without an Internet Connection

If there's any place on the planet without an Internet connection, LeBron James may wanna head there. ASAP.
The Heat forward, whose team lost 105-95 in Game Six of the NBA Finals last night, is being widely criticized around the league for his passive play and arrogant attitude. And now he's being trashed talked by a guy with a backward "P" tattooed on his face.
Following his team's victory, DeShawn Stevenson donned a t-shirt in the Dallas locker room that said in all. In homage to Shaquille O'Neal 2006's taunting of Kobe Bryant, it reads: Hey LeBron! How's My Dirk Taste?
DeShawn Stevenson T-Shirt
It's a reasonable question. After all, Dirk Nowitzki was named MVP of the Finals. LeBron? In the final five minutes, with the game within five points in either direction, he didn't score a single point all series. (Hilton Hater) 14 Jun, 2011

The Hollywood producer - Laura Ziskin Died at Age 61

Laura Ziskin, the Hollywood producer behind hits like the Spider-Man franchise and Pretty Woman, died Sunday at her Los Angeles home at age 61.
Ziskin, who fought a seven-year battle with breast cancer, also produced As Good As It Gets, What About Bob?, Everybody's All-American and No Way Out.
As a woman in a high position in Hollywood, she was often a voice for others seeking recognition in advancement in the entertainment profession.
Laura Ziskin Picture
In a 2002 book called Women Who Run the Show, Ziskin talked about the long-term impact of women in high positions and the importance of their work.
"Movies are arguably the most influential, important medium in the world. They have a tremendous cultural impact,” she said.
“Because women are now making movies, then women's ideas, philosophy, point of view will seep into that culture. And that's never happened in history."
"Ever, ever, ever. We can't even see the impact of that yet."
In addition to her accomplishments on the silver screen, the three-time Emmy nominee was the first woman to solely produce the Academy Awards telecast in 2002. She would go on to produce the show in 2007, as well.
Ziskin was also the driving force behind the annual TV special, Stand Up To Cancer. She is survived by her husband, screenwriter Alvin Sargent.

Katt Williams Following Tractor Attack

Alleged comedian Katt Williams has been arrested again. That's not surprising in the least, but the details surrounding his latest bust sort of are.
The Katt was busted in Palmdale, Calif., after an intense standoff with ... a tractor driver doing tractor work on the home where he was staying.
The man claims that three women approached his vehicle and began attacking him with rocks and dirt clods around 4:30 Saturday afternoon.
Katt Williams Mug Shot
After suffering facial injuries, the man called his wife to pick him up, but when she arrived, Williams pulled up in an SUV and blocked their exit.
That's when the man called 911, the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. arrived and the women were arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.
Katt Williams was charged with intimidating a witness, a felony, and was hauled to a station and booked. He posted $50K bail and left.
Even for a guy who gets arrested so often, this was a new one. (Free Britney) 14 Jun, 2011

The Angelina Jolie Photos Transformed Into The Ads

Angelina Jolie recently became the face of Louis Vuitton.
In a brand-new print ad for the brand's "Core Values" campaign, the actress' face is free of makeup, and her style extremely bland and casual.
Wearing her own casual clothes, Jolie savors a moment of Zen aboard a wooden boat floating in a marsh in Cambodia's Siem Reap province:
Angelina Jolie For Louis Vuitton
Unveiled by Women's Wear Daily, Jolie's stark portrait (weathered, monogrammed LV Alto bag at her side) was photographed by legendary Annie Leibovitz.
The photographer said she had to shoo Jolie's elder four kids out of the picture frame to get the Angelina Jolie photos that would be transformed into the ads.
"People are not used to seeing Angelina in this situation," Vuitton executive vice president Pietro Beccari tells WWD of the sanguine, makeup-free image.
The 36-year-old actress first discovered Cambodia in 2000 while filming Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and is the birthplace of her eldest son Maddox, 10.
"I like the fact that it's a real moment," Beccari added. "This travel message we give through personal journeys is a fundamental one for the brand."
Jolie says she'll donate her earnings from this campaign (also featuring Bono, Sean Connery, Keith Richards and Catherine Deneuve) to charity.
The actress and Brad Pitt, who remain involved in charity and conservation work in Cambodia, recently donated $500,000 to Joplin, Missouri.

Roland Martin on Tracy Morgan Apology

Following his vicious rant against gay people during a stand-up set in Nashville, Tracy Morgan issued an apology and admitted he crossed a line with his violent word choice.
Case closed, right? Not for CNN contributor Roland Martin.
Tracy Morgan on SetRoland Martin Picture
In a blog entry, the journalist wondered by Morgan has to issue a mea culp "for saying nasty, vicious and vile things during a stand-up routine."
"Isn't that par for the course of a comedian?" Martin wrote. "There isn't enough space on the Internet to chronicle the number of times a comedian has said nasty and vile things. Some of it leading the audience to fall out laughing or sometimes, or as in the case of Morgan, walk out in protest."
But didn't Martin jump all over Michael Richards in 2006, following that actor's racist diatribe?

Yes. But here's the difference, Martin writes:
"I said then and now that Richards directly attacked an audience member and his use of the N-word had nothing to do with his routine. If it was in the context of a routine, it would not have been received the same."
We'll grant that difference. But we'll also say this: what kind of routine was Morgan doing? From all reports, there were no punchlines or jokes of any kind. It was simply five minutes of gay bashing.

Conan O'Brien Dartmouth Commencement Address

Conan O'Brien earned an honorary degree from Dartmouth over the weekend, a fact he brought up in mocking, self-deprecating fashion while delivering the commencement address at the university on Sunday.
“My first job as your commencement speaker is to illustrate that life is not fair,” he said. “For instance, you have worked tirelessly for four years to earn the diploma you’ll be receiving this weekend. And Dartmouth is giving me the same degree for interviewing the fourth lead in Twilight. Deal with it.”

Conan O'Brien Dartmouth Commencement Address
The comedian also used his own experience - a certain late-night talk show ousting - to send a message to everyone in the audience. He told them:
“Like many people, I thought that achieving that goal would define me as successful. But that is not true. No specific job or career goal defines me, and it should not define you... whether you fear it or not, disappointment will come. The beauty is that through disappointment you can gain clarity, and with clarity comes conviction and true originality.”
Watch the full speech above and then sound off: Just how awesome is Conan O'Brien?!? (Hilton Hater) 14 Jun, 2011

The Black Eyed Peas: Don't Stop the Party Live in France

Even talented, intelligent celebrities need crib notes now and then. So does Sarah Palin for that matter. Fortunately for, technology saved the day.
The Black Eyed Peas member almost dropped the ball during a taped performance of “Don’t Stop the Party” on the French television show Taratata.
Luckily, his phone saved the day. Sure, that's kind of weak, but it's a lot better than lip-synching or flubbing it altogether. Watch his last-minute save:
