David Hasselhoff's ex-wife Pamela Bach is in some more trouble!

Nicole Valdez, claims Bach crashed into her car and drove off.  It doesn't stop there.  Valdez told TMZ that Bach showed up at her house with a camera crew!

Bach's new attorney wasn't available for comment.

Pamela Bach lost a bitter custody battle to David Hasselhoff that granted him full custody to their two teenaged daughters.

Brad Renfro in trouble again

My childhood acting buddy Brad Renfro is in trouble with the law again! 

Brad was found in violation of his probation Thursday, because he did not enroll in a long-term drug treatment program as a result of his attempted possession of heroin conviction last year.

PEOPLE magazine is reporting that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dorothy Reyes and Deputy District Attorney Lydia Spencer warned Renfro that enrollment in an 18-month to three-year outpatient program is one of the conditions of his probation. 

The judge also said that if he violates his parole two more times, they will likely sentence him to a live-in rehab program or to jail time.

Spencer says that Renfro was in treatment for more than six months but "struggled" and stopped attending.

Film director Joel Schumacher discovered Renfro at age 12 and cast him in the 1994 John Grisham movie The Client. The following year, PEOPLE named Renfro as one of its "Top 30 Under 30."

Renfro's other credits include Tom and Huck, Ghost World, Deuces Wild and The Jacket.

Hopefully he won't be adding prison time to his resume!

Did 'roid rage' kill the Benoit family?

The scene is gruesome to the imagination and reality. 

When police searched Chris Benoit's Georgia mansion, they found three dead bodies. 

In one room, they found the body of Nancy Daus Benoit with a Bible placed beside it.  In Nancy and Chris' son room they found a lifeless Daniel Benoit surrounded by his favorite wrestling toys that collectively formed a shrine to his father and a Bible laying near by.  In the weight room, they found Daniel's father - former WWE champion - Chris Benoit dead, having hanged himself with his workout equipment.

Who would do such a thing?  In this case, it was a double murder suicide.  Authorities suspect that wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife Nancy last Friday night.  The next morning, he killed his son Daniel.  The following day, he killed himself.  The first question that comes to your head is:  Why would someone do this?  Many experts say all signs point to 'roid rage.'

Police also found anabolic steriods while searching the Benoit family home, adding feul to the fire of claims that Chris went into an angry fit as a side effect of the drug and murdered his family.

Authorities raided Benoit's doctor's office and are currently investigating online sources who may have supplied Chris with the drugs.

As this case remains open for now, a service for Nancy and Daniel has been scheduled for next week in Daytona, Fla.

Movie critic Joel Siegel dies at 63

 

We are sad to report that well renowned movie critic Joel Siegel has lost his battle with colon cancer.  He died on Friday.  He was 63.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and fans.

NEW YORK -- Joel Siegel, a longtime movie critic for WABC-TV and "Good Morning America" who racked up five New York Emmy Awards for his insightful work, died Friday, the television station said. He was 63.

The station said Mr. Siegel, who was famous for his weekly reviews, had been battling colon cancer.

"Joel was an important part of ABC News and we will miss him," ABC News President David Westin said in a release. "He was a brilliant reviewer and a great reporter. But much more, he was our dear friend and colleague. Our thoughts and prayers are with Joel's family."

Mr. Siegel was known for his sense of humor, movie acumen and sharp judgment. He never let an actor off the hook if the performance was lackluster.

"The appeal of Matthew McConaughey has long evaded me both as a pinup and as an actor," Mr. Siegel opined in his review of "We Are Marshall," a 2006 film. "His constant ticks, bad hair and strained syntax as a coach fumble what should have been the tragic and inspirational story of the rebuilding of Marshall University's football team after a devastating plane crash."

Dave Davis, president and general manager of WABC-TV, said Mr. Siegel loved to poke fun at uninspiring movies.

"No one had more fun writing about a bad movie than Joel," Davis said.

ABC News anchor Charles Gibson said Mr. Siegel knew how to tell a story.

"He had an inexhaustible supply of stories -- most funny, many poignant, all with a point or a punch line," Gibson said.

Born in Los Angeles on July 7, 1943, Mr. Siegel graduated cum laude from UCLA. After college, he started writing for the Los Angeles Times, where he reviewed books.

He landed in New York City in 1972 and worked as a reporter for WCBS-TV. He also hosted "Joel Siegel's New York" on WCBS Radio. Four years later he jumped to WABC-TV, cementing his reputation as a film critic over the next three decades.

In 1981, he joined "Good Morning America" and became a regular as the network's entertainment editor.

Mindfreak wife files for divorce, blames Cameron Diaz

 

Things are about to get freaky for Mindfreak Criss Angel.  Criss' secret, who he has been in a relationship with for 15 years, is filing for divorce saying their marriage ended when Criss started having an affair with Cameron Diaz.

Joanne Sarantakos, according to the New York Post, will subpoena Diaz and have her testify about her relationship with Criss Angel in New York state Supreme Court on Long Island.

Sarantakos is claiming mental cruelty and abandonment.  Sarantakos' famous attorney Dominic Barbara says Criss (who changed his last name to Angel for magical effect) has kept his wife of five years a secret to increase his sex appeal among female fans.

Angel's lawyer, Elliot Weiner, did not deny the adultery allegation.  Has anyone asked Diaz what she thinks?

Enrique Iglesias wants to be gay??

Ok, so maybe Enrique Iglesias doesn't want to be gay on all accounts... but he does like the idea of open relationships like most of his gay friends have.

Enrique, who is dating Anna Kournikova, told Genre magazine, "My stylist is gay and lives in Los Angeles and when he came to Miami, he went out. And I asked, 'Your boyfriend doesn't care?' And he said, 'We have an understanding if I'm out of the city.' When I saw George Michael, he said the same thing. I'm going to have to have a talk with my girl!"

Rumors had recently surfaced that Iglesias and Kournikova had called it quits, but no luck... Enrique later confirmed that they are still dating.

We can always hope can't we?!

Eve pleads no contest, gets SCRAM

Eve didn't show up in court today, but through her attorney she pleaded no contest to a  misdemeanor drunken-driving charge stemming from an early morning arrest Apr. 26 in which she parked her gold Maserati smack in the middle of a center divider.

Eve dispatched attorney Blair Berk to do her dirty work and enter her plea to the count of driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent.  In return, Eve's new fashion accessory will be SCRAM alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet for 45 days, enroll in a three-month first-offender alcohol-education program, attend at least 10 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and spend 36 months in informal probation, during which time she must obey all laws but will not have to report to a parole officer. 

Otherwise, she'll get the Paris Hilton suite at Lynwood Correctional Facility.

Is Paula Abdul a drunk or just sleepy?

On Thursday night we got our first taste of Bravo's latest reality show venture, "Hey Paula" starring 1980's back-up dancer turned pop star Paula Abdul

I know most of you know her from American Idol, but that really wasn't where she got her start!!

The show was kept under pretty tight wraps until Thursday night.  We didn't get a teaser or anything!  Now we know why.

On the show, "Hey Paula," Ms. Abdul reveals that she doesn't sleep!  If the reality cameras don't lie, then Paula isn't an alcoholic or a drunk after all.  Like me, when she stays awake too long she  basically starts acting like she is drunk or on drugs.

The first episode followed Paula to a QVC gig and the second episode followed her to the infamous morning news tour where she sounded like a mad woman talking in tounges.  Paula and her peeps blame it all on lack of sleep. 

The crazy thing is, I'm buying it!

Could Britney Spears be the sane one?

For a long time, we all just assumed that Britney Spears was just crazy and eaten up with drugs and alcohol.  Now, Britney is pointing fingers at her mom, her ex-hubby Kevin Federline and her former manager Larry Rudolph.

Britney says she never had a drug or alcohol problem and that her stay at the Promises Rehab Facility was a plan that her "people" cooked up, according to TMZ.blog.

Spears evidently admits she was having emotional problems after her second child was born, but strongly maintained she did not have a drug or alcohol problem.

We're told eventually the professionals believed Spears suffered from post-partum depression, made worse because she stopped taking Prozac. She was also emotionally crumbling because of a messy divorce and intense media scrutiny.

After leaving Promises, as paparazzi waited for the golden shot of Britney drinking again, she began getting angry that she was at a rehab facility in the first place. Britney and her assistant, Allie Sims, called Promises multiple times, asking for a copy of the report showing that she tested dirty for drugs and/or alcohol when she checked in.

We're told it took several days to get an answer. Only two reports were sent to Britney's rep, both showing no drug or alcohol use whatsoever. Most shocking, the first report was dated March 7, 15 days after Britney checked in.

Sources say one of Britney's reps then called the facility and asked for any evidence of a dirty test, but she was told there was nothing in the file.

Oh my goodness, is Britney actually making sense here?  As TMZ pointed out, how could a rehab facility treat a patient when they don't even know what they are treating her for?? 

Britney, of course, later fired Larry Rudolph.  She has also stopped speaking with her mother Lynne and even filed court papers to keep her away from Jayden James and Sean Preston (Britney's two sons).  The "Toxic" singer has also recently rekindled her feud with ex-scrub K-Fed.

Penelope Cruz's airplane breakdown

Penelope Cruz evidently flipped out on a plane from Newark to Barcelona on Thursday night delaying the flight for everyone on board.

The big question is... what hit Ms. Cruz the wrong way?

The Huffington Post has the details:

Penelope Cruz had a panic attack onboard a Continental flight from Newark to Barcelona Thursday night. Cruz, who appeared to be traveling alone, was in first class and became agitated after the plane left the gate. After she spoke with the cockpit, the plane returned to the gate and Cruz deplaned. A fellow passenger told Huffington Post, “She was freaking out and refused to fly.” In the process of Cruz deplaning, the flight removed all the bags, which then sat in the rain, so that the airline could locate her luggage.

The status on Continental’s website of Flight 120 shows that the airplane returned to the gate in Newark before taking off almost two hours late, at 8:52 pm for a 7:10 pm departure.

Continental spokesman Dave Messing had no additional comment.

Cruz’s publicist has yet to return a call for comment. The Oscar nominee is scheduled to shoot a Woody Allen film in Barcelona.

This is not the first time Cruz has had a air scare. Last year she told Marie Claire about an emergency landing a plane made in 2004 with friend Salma Hayek.

Maybe someone just hates flying?

Coroner's report shows Richard Jeni was mentally ill

Even prior to the day in March when he killed himself, comedian Richard Jeni had a history of mental illness and was hospitalized late last year for suicidal depression, according to a coroner's report released on Thursday.

Jeni died at 49 in a California hospital after shooting himself in the head at his Hollywood home on March 10th.

His girlfriend was making breakfast downstairs when Jeni shot himself in the mouth with a .38-caliber Colt Detective Special handgun, according to the report.  It also reveals that she had heard him talking to himself a week earlier, saying "'just squeeze the trigger.'"  

Jeni was involuntarily hospitalized on Dec. 28 after he showed up in a hospital emergency room with suicidal depression and indicated he would jump off of a building.  Other than that incident, the report says Jeni, born Richard John Colangelo, had not made any previous suicide attempts and left no note.

Just days after his Jeni's family disclosed that the comic was mentally ill and said in a statement that he had been diagnosed earlier this year with "severe clinical depression coupled with bouts of psychotic paranoia."

Cold Pizza hosts accused of sexual harassment

Things were evidently a bit hotter behind the scenes of Cold Pizza than we ever expected.  Former hair stylist Rita Ragone says host Jay Crawford and sportswriter Woody Paige groped and propositioned her off-air showering her with raunchy sex talk more fit for a locker room than a TV studio.

Ragone says in a suit filed yesterday in Manhattan Federal Court that she was fired in April 2006 after ESPN execs ignored her complaints and warned her that the on-air talent was "untouchable."

At one point, she said in court papers, Paige grabbed her rear end so hard that she jumped.

"Hey, quit it," she scolded him.

Another time, Crawford forced her into a corner and told her that he wanted her, she says.

"I don't care if you can do makeup or not....The only reason that you got the job here is because you're hot," Crawford is quoting as saying.

"Wanna see what's in my pants?" one of them wondered. The court papers don't specify who made the remark.

And, Ragone claims, Paige bragged about his vasectomy and once elicited a chuckle from others by musing that "Rita looks like she's really good at giving b--- jobs" when she walked into a room.

"It is not true," Paige, a columnist with The Denver Post and frequent "Cold Pizza" contributor, said in a terse e-mail to the Daily News.

"This suit is without merit, and we deny the allegations," said ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys.

"Cold Pizza" was taken off the air in May and replaced with "First Take," also hosted by Crawford.

Michael Jackson issues statement about rumors

Michael Jackson is trying to clear up some recent rumors saying most recent stories about him are "untrue, defamatory and malicious."  

The NY Daily News is reporting that Jackson's spokeswoman Raymone K. Bain wants us to know the following:

  • Is not bedridden.

  • Is not on any type of medication, including painkillers.

  • Has not "left" Las Vegas nor is he being “evicted” from his residence in Las Vegas. He decided not to exercise the option to purchase the house. Period.

  • Does not believe that his brother Randy Jackson has stolen monies from him.

  • Does not think any family members would ever steal from him.

  • Has never used nor instructed his security to use force toward any reporter.

  • Is neither losing nor selling his share of the ATV/Sony partnership (which includes the Beatles catalogue).

  • Is concerned that his assistant Grace Rwaramba, said to live a very private life, is constantly being attacked by Fox News' Roger Friedman. (Friedman could not be reached for comment.)

  •  What's true? "Jackson is currently in the studio putting finishing touches on his music ... and yesterday, he met with his advisers, who included former attorney general Benjamin R. Civiletti and the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr."

  • Okay. Now you know.

We can all sleep a little easier now, I'm sure!

Is Lily Allen gay?

 

Is Ms. Lily Allen turning lesbo?  We'll let her answer that question...

"I have been having a lot of lesbian dreams lately. I think I might be gay! Don't tell my boyfriend. I have guy dreams and girl dreams, but the girl dreams are much dirtier."

I guess time will tell!  Maybe that's why she was so concerned about having her picture taken at the gay bar last month?!

Paris Hilton takes a post click vacation

 

Jail bird Paris Hilton must think she deserves a vacation!  After being released at midnight on Tuesday, Paris has had her hair done, eaten Taco Bell, opened up to PEOPLE magazine and Larry King... now the hotel heiress is on vacation.

Page Six is reporting that Ms. Hilton has landed in Hawaii.

FRESH off her CNN interview with Larry King where she lied about her use of drugs in the past, Paris Hilton touched down in Hawaii yesterday to enjoy a short vacation after her 23-day stint in a California clink. The hotel heiress, 26, was not surrounded by her usual entourage of bodyguards and friends - instead she was alone and sporting a black wig and straw hat. On Wednesday, Hilton told King that she never used drugs and was not a big drinker.

Did Britney Spears let Paris borrow that tacky wig?!  What was she thinking?!

Video of the Week: Beyonce rips off Kylie Minogue

Beyonce is becoming more and more known for unoriginality, and obviously she couldn't get Kylie Minogue's dance moves out of her head.

This week, Beyonce ripped off Kylie taking a nearly identical scene from the opening of her "Come Into My World" Fever tour opener.

In this video you will see Kylie's original performance from 2002 in a split screen with Beyonce's recent performance at the BET awards.

Elle Macpherson, Naomi Campbell, Hugh Grant and Boris Becker were among the guests Elton's home in Windsor, Berks.

Wikipedia breaks Benoit story before police

In a strange twist to the double murder suicide involving WWE wrestling superstar Chris Benoit, it looks like someone knew about the murders before the rest of the world did. 

According to Wikipedia.org, someone altered Chris' page saying that his wife, Nancy, had died before police had even released the news that she had been killed.

Authorities said Thursday they are trying to determine who altered the entry on the collaborative reference site 14 hours before authorities discovered the bodies of the couple and their son.

Benoit's Wikipedia entry was altered early Monday to say the wrestler had missed a match two days earlier because of his wife's death from a computer in Stamford, Conn., the headquarters of the WWE.  They also say additional edits were made from an Australian IP address. 

The Wikipedia twist ads a whole new chapter to the investigation, but a comment on the page from the same IP address was later added saying:

"I posted the comment we are all talking about and I am here to explain that it was A HUGE COINCIDENCE and nothing more,'' the poster said, declining to reveal their identity, "so I can keep me and my family out of this since they have nothing to do with anything".

Police suspect that Benoit strangled his wife and 7-year old son before hanging himself in their Atlanta home.  Police found all three bodies in separate rooms of their secluded mansion.

Will Lindsay play Paris in the biopic?

 

While there's talk of Lindsay Lohan going to jail just like Paris Hilton, who would have thought there would be word of Lindsay playing Paris in an upcoming biopic about the hotel heiress jail bird?

"There have already been negotiations with a major film company to make the Paris Hilton biopic with Lindsay Lohan playing Paris - with Britney Spears singing the soundtrack."

The three have, of course, been spotted partying together.  Britney and Lindsay went to rehab while Paris served 23 days in the clink.  The three have had an on-again-on-off-again relationship to say the least.

The source added: "Paris was on cloud nine. Rather than talking remorsefully about her time inside, she seemed energised by her plans to capitalise on her experience."

This could turn out be rather strange.

Lindsay Lohan may get hit with a Paris Hilton

In other words, it looks like Lindsay Lohan may end up behind bars after authorities say she had "nearly twice the legal limit" of alcohol and cocaine in her bloodstream when she was involved in the Memorial Day car accident that landed Ms. Lohan in rehab.

TMZ.blog is reporting that authorities have tipped them off on the results of the toxicology reports.

Lohan was sent to the hospital and later arrested when she crashed her 2005 Mercedes SL-65 convertible into a curb on Sunset Blvd. on May 26. In California, drivers with a .08 or higher are considered legally drunk.

Lohan's lawyer, Blair Berk, told TMZ, "It's highly inappropriate for me to discuss a pending case." Berk added, "It is extremely unprofessional for law enforcement to do it."

TMZ is also reporting that the Beverly Hills Police Dept. could present the case to the Los Angeles D.A. in the next few days.

Lindsay better come up with a medical condition quickly.  Paris Hilton has already claimed claustrophobia and ADD. Nicole Richie seems to have gotten knocked up.  Be creative Lindsay, be creative.

Paris Hilton drew tons of viewers for Larry King Live making this his highest rated show of the year.  On Wednesday night, 3.2 million viewers (nearly triple the show's average audience) tuned in for Hilton's first post-jail interview.

The hour long interview will run again on Friday.

Opera star Beverly Sills battling cancer

We are sad to report that world-famous opera singer Beverly Sills is critically ill with cancer.  Her publicist issued this statement on Thursday:

"It's grave. This whole matter of this discovery of cancer has been just about four weeks now. Up until that she had no idea," publicist Edgar Vincent said. He did not release details on the nature of her cancer.

Sill is currently in a New York hospital for a broken rib, or she would be at home Vincent said. 

Sills, 78, resigned as chairwoman of the Metropolitan Opera in 2005, an opera house at which she did not make her official debut until 1975, five years before she retired from the stage.

Prior to her Met job, Beverly was chairwoman of the New York City Opera, where she first achieved stardom as a singer and became the most famous American opera singer.

Nicknamed "Bubbles" and known for her red hair and gifted coloratura soprano voice, Sills was famed for performances in such productions as "The Magic Flute" and "Lucia di Lammermoor."

She is in our thoughts and prayers.

Power outages slow down the Big Apple

A brief power outage delivered a huge blow to New York City on Wednesday, the hottest day of the year so far!

Many subway lines were stopped, the Metropolitan Museum of Art was evacuated and thousands of people found themselves without power.

It looks like it's going to be another insane summer!

NEW YORK (AP) -- A brief power outage darkened a large swath of Manhattan and the Bronx Wednesday, knocking out traffic lights, cutting subway service and forcing the evacuation of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on one of the hottest days of the year.

Power was restored within about an hour, but that did not stop the city from experiencing some of the chaos it endured during blackouts last year and in 2003.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art was evacuated, and visitors were forced to sit on the outside steps in the sweltering heat. Traffic lights up and down the east side of Manhattan and the Bronx, including the area around Yankee Stadium, went dark.

The city was in the second day of temperatures well over 90 degrees.

"People came in off the street and we were selling flashlights, bottled water, candles, ice," said Barry Newman, a pharmacist at a Gristede's Pharmacy on the Upper East Side.

In the street, "people stood outside their apartment buildings, looking nervous. Everyone was saying, 'What's going on? What's going on?'"

Consolidated Edison said the blackout affected 136,700 customers in all, or more than 500,000 people.

The cause was under investigation, but utility spokesman Chris Olert said it was some sort of transmission disturbance. He didn't know whether the heat was a factor. "We won't even speculate on the cause yet," Olert said.

Suspensions and delays were reported along the city's subways because of the power failure. The Metro-North commuter railroad, which serves the northern suburbs, had to reduce the number of trains it was using, resulting in delays and crowded trains as the evening rush-hour approached, said spokeswoman Marjorie Anders.

The power outage was reminiscent of previous summer blackouts that struck New York City.

Last summer, about 174,000 people were affected by a blackout in Queens. Residents sweltered without air conditioners on some of the hottest days of the year, and estimated business losses ran into the tens of millions of dollars as stores were forced to throw out perished goods.

The Public Service Commission issued a blistering report this year, and said the company needed to make "critical and substantial" improvements.

New York was also hard hit by a 2003 blackout that cut power to a large chunk of the Northeast.

Wrestler Steve Austin's ex-wife claims abuse, steriod use

 

The wrestling world is doing everything they can to save face following Chris Benoit's sick ending to his life by killing his wife, son and himself over the weekend in their Georgia home.

Now, Debra Williams, Stonecold Steve Austin's ex-wife, says she was the victim of abuse while Austin himself was using steriods. 

"The domestic and drug abuse is out of hand in the WWE and something needs to be done about it," Williams said.

Williams told the Denver Fox station that she is too familiar with steriod use.

"He did them, I saw him do them!" she said of the World Wrestling Entertainment star Stone Cold Steve Austin.

"In the last ten years, 60 wrestlers under age 45 have died... all in the prime of their lives. Big strong men, who somehow die with little or no investigation of the organization that encourages performers to use muscle enhancing drugs," said Williams.

Authorities say wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife Nancy and their son before hanging himself.  Debra says maybe she should have spoken up sooner to save people like Nancy.

Paris Hilton speaks with Larry King and PEOPLE mag

In her first television interview since getting out of jail, Paris Hilton will speak with Larry King on Wednesday night.

Most expect that Paris will tell Larry King she is a changed woman.  Hilton did two interviews while she was behind bars.  She called both Barbara Walters and Ryan Seacrest from the slammer telling them that jail has made her a better person.

"I want to help build a transitional home so that when inmates leave here they don't have to go back to the street," she told E! News' Ryan Seacrest from jail last week.

"I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute," Hilton told ABC News' Barbara Walters.

Hilton also spoke with PEOPLE magazine on news stands Friday. 

On her medical condition:
"The doctors were observing me while I was there. They explained to Sheriff [Lee] Baca that they thought I was having severe anxiety, panic attacks, claustrophobia."

On people who doubt that she will change after her jail experience:
"They're wrong and they don't know me. I'm a good person. I'm a compassionate person. I have a big heart. I'm sincere, and they'll see."

On getting out:
"Just being able to hug my mom felt so great, and I really needed it 'cause I haven't had a hug in a long time."

Hilton also told PEOPLE that she was "shocked" by the attention given to her case.

To help save her image, Paris has hired crisis-management expert Michael Sitrick, whose Los Angeles firm has represented talk-show host Rush Limbaugh, singer R. Kelly and drummer Tommy Lee.

Hilton's Larry King Live airs Wednesday night at 9pm on CNN.

Ann Coulter raising money for John Edwards

Conservative bitch Ann Coulter has tried her best to impair John Edwards' bid for the White House.  First she called him a "faggot" which opened up plenty of opportunities to raise money. 

On Monday's Good Morning America, Coulter lashed out at Edwards again.

"I've learned my lesson. If I'm gonna say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot," she joked.

The Edwards' don't find it so funny.  On Tuesday night, Coulter was the guest on MSNBC's Hardball and John's wife Elizabeth called in to put to Coulter in her place.

Elizabeth first asked Ann to "stop the personal attacks," accusing her of "defacing" the country's political dialogue.

Coulter retorted that "I made a joke, let's see, six months ago and ... they've been raising money off of it for six months." When Edwards pointed out that she'd made her latest remark this week, Coulter said, "I didn't say anything about him, actually, either time." "Ann, you know that's not true," Edwards said. 

John Edwards is, however, capitalizing on Coulter's stupidity.  He even posted the exchange on his campaign website.

Who knew that a republican bitch like Ann Coulter could help the democratic party so much?!  Keep talking Ann!  Keep talking!

Steriods found in dead wrestlers' home

Police confirmed on Tuesday that steriods were found in the house of Chris Benoit adding fuel to the fire that "roid rage" was the reason the WWE wrestler killed his wife, his son and himself.

"Roid rage" is the term coined for when steriod users become out of control with anger, but the WWE released a statement saying they don't believe steriods contributed to the massacre.

“People that abuse steroids carry with them an increase risk of rage and rage attacks. There’s also an increased risk of depression, so it’s kind of a double whammy.” Psychiatrist Dr. John Bradford told the Edmonton Sun.

Authorities also said that Chris' wife Nancy Benoit, had filed a restraining order against him 2003 because of abusive behavior.

Police also said Bibles were left at the slain bodies of of Benoit's wife and child.

Nancy Grace: married and knocked up... surprise!

The secret is out!  Hardhitting reporter and Headline News host Nancy Grace is pregnant with twins!  It gets better... Nancy also got secretly married in April!

Grace married David Linch -an Atlanta investment banker she has known since they attended Mercer College together in the late 1970s.

"We've been in touch all these years and a lot of time we were separated by geography and time," she says. "It was a spur-of-the-moment decision to get married. I told my family only two days before [the wedding].

"We got married in April in Atlanta with just my family and his family there," she says. "It was a simple ceremony conducted by my longtime pastor from a little Methodist church in Macon.

"I walked down the aisle to my favorite song, 'Moon River,' and I did my own vows. I read from the Book of Ruth and I wore my sister's bridal veil.

"I never thought it would happen like this," she says. "I thought 'mother' and 'wife' was just not part of God's plan for me.

"This is such a blessing, and I just can't believe that, at my age, I would find such happiness."

Congrats to the evil wench who I totally love!  I just wouldn't want to be one of those kids!

Carrie Underwood, Kevin Eubanks named sexiest vegetarians

Jay Leno's sidekick Kevin Eubanks and the country American Idol Carrie Underwood have been named the "world's sexiest vegetarians" in PETA's annual contest.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals released their results on Wednesday.

Runners-up in the contest, which the animal rights group said drew more than 110,000 votes on their web site, included Joaquin Phoenix, Milo Ventimiglia, Kristen Bell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jared Leto and Lisa Edelstein.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Carrie Underwood and Kevin Eubanks have been named the "world's sexiest vegetarians" in PETA's annual contest.

Results were released Tuesday by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Underwood, 24, a Grammy-winning country singer, won the title in 2005. Eubanks, 49, leader of NBC's "Tonight Show" band, is a newcomer to the winner's circle.

Eubanks leapt ahead of his competitors with help from Jay Leno, who encouraged viewers to vote for Eubanks and "bring honor" to the late-night NBC talk show.

"I'm gonna keep this campaign going," Leno said during a recent show after sharing a photo of a shirtless Eubanks with his audience. Leno said the shot, in which Eubanks is holding a backpack and posing against a woodsy backdrop, wasn't doctored.

Runners-up in the contest, which the animal rights group said drew more than 110,000 votes on its Web site, included Joaquin Phoenix, Milo Ventimiglia, Kristen Bell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jared Leto and Lisa Edelstein.

Last year, Prince and Bell, who starred on the "Veronica Mars" TV series, were picked as the two sexiest vegetarians. Previous winners also include Natalie Portman, Andre 3000, Coldplay's Chris Martin, Shania Twain, Tobey Maguire, Lauren Bush, Josh Hartnett and Alicia Silverstone.

Wrestling tragedies are piling up

Some are starting to refer to it as the WWE curse.  World Wrestling Entertainment has lost two legends in the past week and many fans find themselves flashing back to previous tragedies and reliving some horrible memories.

First police found Sensational Sherri Martel dead in her mothers home.  Cops say that don't suspect any foul play, but they say she did not die of natural causes.

Then on Monday, Chris Benoit was also found dead with his wife and son in their home.  Police suspect that Chris strangled his wife and smothered his son before hanging himself, according to authorities.

This has resparked memories of one of the most tragic scenes in wrestling history.  Wrestler Owen Hart plummeted to his death while attempting a high flying stunt.

Owen was supposed to be lowered down to the ring from about 80 ft. in the air via a lowering mechanism. Owen climbed the stairs and as he got ready for his entrance, he emptied out his costume bag to get dressed. He did not put everything on, however, as he wanted to hook himself to the harness first.

WWE canceled all of their Monday night events following the news of Benoit's death. Police are still investigating why Chris would have killed his family and himself. Many suspect it was anger stemming from steriod use or "roid rage."

Wrestler Chris Benoit found dead

WWE superstar Chris Benoit, his wife and son were found dead Monday.  Cops suspect it was a murder-suicide. Detective Bob Turner said that couldn't be confirmed until evidence was examined by a crime lab.

WAGA-TV is reporting that investigators believe 40-year-old Benoit killed his wife, Nancy, and 7-year-old son, Daniel, over the weekend, then himself on Monday. One of their neighbors called the police, and the bodies were found in three different rooms.

Lt. Tommy Pope, of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department, told The Associated Press the deaths were being investigated as homicide, and that the causes of death awaited autopsy results on Tuesday. Pope said the bodies were discovered about 2:30 p.m., but did not release any details.

Benoit was a former world heavyweight and Intercontinental champion in addition to several tag-team titles throughout his career.

"WWE extends its sincerest thoughts and prayers to the Benoit family's relatives and loved ones in this time of tragedy," the federation said in a statement on its Web site.

Benoit was scheduled to perform at the "Vengeance" pay-per-view on Sunday night in Houston, but was replaced at the last minute because of what announcer Jim Ross called "personal reasons."

Benoit was born in Canada, but he maintained a home in metro Atlanta from the time he wrestled for the World Championship Wrestling.

The folks at WWE canceled the live show "Monday Night RAW" in Corpus Christi, Texas, and USA Network aired a three-hour tribute to Benoit in place of the scheduled wrestling telecast.

"My relationship with Chris has extended many years and I consider him a great friend," Carl DeMarco, the president of WWE Canada, said in a statement. "Chris was always first-class — warm, friendly, caring and professional one of the best in our business."

Gay Pride New York City 2007 Wrap Up!

 

I have a lot of thank you's to hand out after this amazing gay pride week in New York City last week.

Again, we can't thank you enough for voting HOT MESS at Porky's as the Best Gay Lounge Night in NYC.

If you have been keeping up with the nightclub scoop here at gaysocialites.blog, then you know that we accepted the honor last Monday at the HX Awards.

HOT MESS's Gay Pride Double Your Pleasure Party Sunday was fun, crazy, insane... words can't describe it!!  This party is truly the talk of the town, and on the gayest of gay nights the boys locked to HOT MESS to get a taste of the insanity known as Porky's.  There were too many DJs and drag queens to count including Epiphany, Logan, Acid Betty, Rainblo, Lady Fag, DJ Adam, Steve Sidewalk, John Marto and J-Roc (the list actually goes on and on.

This party has quickly become one of the best parties in New York City.  There's nothing else in the city like HOT MESS @ Porky's.

Also seen: porn star Ben Andrews, socialite Jason Preston, Kurfew founder Jeff Brenner, singer Adam Barta and whole gaggle of go-go boys.

Its true that the venue is going to start charging a cover of $5 next week.  If you just tell the door diva that you're a GaySocialite then it's free.. Socialites shouldn't have to pay a cover, ever!  It's that simple.

My pride partying actually kicked off the night before for Notorious Saturdays at Rush.  Again, I can't say thank you enough.  This place was packed and everybody was having an amazing time.  There was a constant line to get into the club, and all three floors were opened!  I pat Dave and Rob on the back!  They're doing a great job of keeping the 18 and over party scene alive.  Logan and Chandelier burned it up while Alixandria used her own process of elimination (that some might call rape) to help crown Mr. Gay Pride.

This was just a taste of what is coming up.  Next week, the Notorious staff welcomes back one of the club's founders, BoiParty.blog.  BoiParty and GaySocialites will join forces with Chris Ryan, Joey Merlot, Jean Luc, The Gay List and more to bring you this event every Saturday night.

Now that you've had a taste of Hot Mess, its addictive.  The party is that much fun every week, and it is only getting crazier!

Thanks again to you all!

Posh Beckham socks it to Star Magazine

When the folks at Star magazine wrote that Victoria "Posh" Beckham was "picky, demanding, and rude," not to mention "full of herself," they probably never thought it would come with such a hefty price tag.

In April, Star wrote that a source working on "Victoria Beckham: Coming to America" said Mrs. Beckham was "picky, demanding, and rude," "full of herself," and "not very nice." I know you are but what am I?  The problem with their big breaking story is that Posh wasn't taping her show in April.

As a result, Star apologized Monday in a British court and agreed to shell out a substantial undisclosed sum of cash to the Spice Girl to cover her "damages" and court fees.

Prostitute charged for robbing Foxy Brown

 

Even though rapper Foxy Brown says she wasn't robbed in the projects of Brooklyn, NYPD has arrested and charged someone with the crime.

According to a report in New York's Daily News, Foxy Brown, born Inga Marchand, was robbed outside of the Louis H. Pink Houses in the Brooklyn's East New York neighborhood.

Foxy said it wasn't her, because she wasn't even in New York this weekend.  The cops beg to differ.

"A perp by the name of Roshawn Anthony did take part in an assault and robbery of a victim, the victim being Inga Marchand," Detective Carlos Nieves said. "This was on the 23rd of June and she was arrested at 6:45 am in front of 802 Crescent Street [in Brooklyn]. The complaint was filed by Inga Marchand." Anthony denied the charges, according to The Associated Press.

According to the report that police say Brown filed, Foxy told police she was approached in her car by Anthony and three other individuals on the Northeast corner of Crescent Street and Stanley Avenue.  Using physical force, cops say Brown told her she was accosted and stripped of her Louis Vuitton bag, about $500 in cash, credit cards and her hearing aid. 

Police did shoot down one rumor saying Brown was not badly beaten.  Some reports Sunday suggested that she was badly hurt and was given medical attention.

So where the heck will this go from here?! 

It may be hard to prosecute a robber when the star witness for the prosecution is siding with the accused.

Jesus didn't help 'bong hits' banner

The US Supreme Court has ruled against an Alaska high school student suspended in 2002 for displaying a 14-foot banner reading "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" during a parade for the Winter Olympic Games.

This is the first major decision regarding student free-speech rights in about 20 years, and in Monday's the court determined that the student's rights had not been violated.

According to The Associated Press, the highest court in the land found that Juneau, Alaska, high school principal Deborah Morse did not violate student Joseph Frederick's constitutional rights when she confiscated the banner and later decided to suspend him.

In Chief Justice John Robert's report of the ruling he writes that it means that students could face future limits on their rights to free speech, especially when said speech could be interpreted as promoting illegal drug use.

The Price Isn't Right for Rosie O'Donnell

Rosie O'Donnell could be the next big thing in the blogging world! 

Ro announced on her video blog over the weekend that she has scrapped the idea of hosting "The Price is Right."

As we suspected, Rosie couldn't come to a deal with CBS because the O'Donnell family lives in New York and "The Price is Right" is taped in Los Angeles.

Calling the idea "a fantasy childhood indulgence," Rosie explained that she asked CBS to let her tape multiple episodes on the days she was out West, but the network wasn't having it. According to O'Donnell, having the gig wasn't a necessity.

"I don't really need a job," Rosie said on her vlog.

Rosie is putting her family first by choosing not to transpant her clan to the west coast. 

Her blogs and vlogs are getting so much attention, she may not need a network or television for her show at all.  The hot spot might be www.rosie.blog.

Evan Almighty needs a savior

"Evan Almighty" did not do as well as expected this weekend at the box office even though it took the top spot.  With a $175 million price tag, "Evan Almighty" is the most expensive comedy movie ever made.

An estimated three-day haul of $32.1 million just doesn't cut it!  This was one of the lowest openings for a summer film all season.  The latest chapters of "Spider-Man," "Shrek" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchises have already set higher records.

"Evan Almighty's" figures look dismal compared to its prequel "Bruce Almighty" which brought in $68 million durings its first three days.

Here are the current totals and rankings for the weekend box office.

1. Evan Almighty .............. $ 32.1 million

Meet the world's ugliest dog, Elwood

Meet Elwood, the world's ugliest dog.  For once, I'm not being mean!  Elwood was actually crowned the World's Ugliest Dog on Friday. 

He's a 2-year-old Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix, dark colored and hairless other than his white mohawk on his head. 

"I think he's the cutest thing that ever lived," said Elwood's owner, Karen Quigley, a resident of Sewell, New Jersey.

Quigley brought Elwood out to compete for the second year at the annual ugly dog contest at the Marin-Sonoma County Fair. Elwood came in second place last year.

Most of the competing canines were also Chinese Crested, a breed that features a mohawk, bug eyes and a long, wagging tongue.

Quigley said she rescued Elwood two years ago. "The breeder was going to euthanize him because she thought he was too ugly to sell," said Quigley.

"So ha ha, now Elwood's all over the Internet and people love him and adore him."

Other than the distinguished title of ugliest dog, Elwood also earned a $1,000 reward for his owner.  I guess that's good for a face that only a mother could love.

Tom Cruise and David Beckham bonding

Suri Cruise looks so cute as she waves at the paparazzi snapping her picture with daddy Tom Cruise as they left France earlier this week. 

But Tom's relationship with his beautiful (and strangely normal looking) little girl isn't what's making headlines these days.   It's his relationship with beautiful soccer star David Beckham that has people talking.

Tom is evidently interested in investing $80 million to purchase Beckham's new soccer team.

A source said: "To have Tom's backing would be amazing - there's no way Galaxy bosses would turn down that opportunity." 

Becks will begin playing for LA Galaxy next month.

Angelina hopes film doesn't affect travels

Angelina Jolie says she hopes the opening of her new film "A Mighty Heart" doesn't affect her travels as a UN ambassador.

The film about the kidnapping of Jewish-American journalist Daniel Pearl, directed by Briton Michael Winterbottom and produced by Jolie's baby daddy Brad Pitt, is a procedural thriller that shows how a disparate group of Pakistanis, Indians and Americans unite to try to save Pearl before Islamic terrorists butcher him.

"I miss (Pakistan)," Jolie said. "I have been there three times and I have a deep love for that part of the world, and I'm very saddened by how every day it seems to breaking more and more apart."

Jolie and Winterbottom said that the film, based on the autobiographical book by Mariane Pearl, is largely accurate.

Paris' prosecutor in trouble of his own

The Los Angeles prosecutor who accused Paris Hilton of enjoying celebrity favoritism seems to be in some deep water himself!  The scandal involves City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo and is over driving violations and personal use of city resources.

The Los Angeles Ethics Commission and the California State Bar are both investigating Delgadillo, according to the LA Times.

Delgadillo, the city's top law enforcement official, has admitted driving without insurance, allowing his wife to drive his city-owned car without a license and having staff babysit his children and run other errands.

Neither the ethics commission nor the state bar, which regulates and disciplines California lawyers, would confirm the confidential probes. Delgadillo's office said he "is fully prepared to cooperate with any investigation."

Mr. Delgadillo prosecuted Hilton for driving offences in May and Delgadillo himself then complained that Paris was getting special treatment when the socialite heiress was reassigned to house arrest after only three days in jail.

As a result Hilton was sent back to slammer and is expected to be released on Tuesday after serving 23 days.

Story of the Week: Gay Marriage Bill passes in NY

Just in time for pride, our story of the week, is that New York's state Assembly passed a gay marriage bill earlier this week. 85-61.

The democratic controlled assembly and democratic Gov. Eliot Spitzer support the measure, but the Republican-led state Senate is not expected to act on it any time soon.

"We are now more sure than ever that New York will do the equal and just thing," said Cathy Marino-Thomas, co-executive director of Marriage Equality New York, a group that promotes legalizing gay marriage.

Massachusetts is the only U.S. state that has legalized same-sex marriage so far.

Censorship issues suspend 'Manhunt 2' release

Video game creator Take-Two Interactive Software announced this week that it has delayed plans to sell "Manhunt 2" after the title was tagged with restrictive ratings for extreme violence.

Take-Two said it "temporarily suspended" distribution plans for the game while it reviews its options following the banning of the game in Britain and a strict U.S. rating decision to give it an "Adults Only" rating.

This isn't the first controversial game for Take-Two studio.  They are also the producers behind such controversial titles as "Grand Theft Auto" and "Bully."

"We continue to stand behind this ordinary game. We believe in freedom of creative expression, as well as responsible marketing, both of which are essential to our business of making great entertainment," Take-Two said in a statement.

"Manhunt 2" had originally been scheduled for a July 10 release.

Paris Hilton to be released on Tuesday

It's official.  Paris Hilton will be released from the slammer on Tuesday Sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore announced Friday according to TMZ.blog.

Authorities would not reveal what time the heiress/convict will be released -- much to the dismay of every paparazzi agency in town. When asked about the media circus surrounding Hilton's upcoming release, Whitmore said, "We anticipate the exit will be covered the same as the entrance." 

Paris go locked up on June 3rd.  Since going to the click, Ms. Hilton has said that jail has changed her life.  Does this mean there won't be a coming home party after all?

Anything is possible when you're dealing with Paris!

As we told you yesterday, rumors have been circulating that NBC beat out the other major networks for Paris Hilton's first post-prison interview.  Now, NBC says there deal was never inked so there is nothing to cancel.

Allison Gollust, Senior VP of NBC News Communications, told TMZ , "There's nothing to pull the plug on because we never committed to this."

The interview was rumored to have been set for the "Today" show with Meredith Vieria, but Gollust said, "It can't be dead if it was never alive to begin with."

Paternity results report: Eddie Murphy is Scary Spice's baby daddy

The results are in, and it's official!  Eddie Murphy is the father of Melanie Brown's 2-month old baby.

"He's the baby's father, it's official," a source close to Brown told PEOPLE. "The baby is undoubtedly, 110 percent his."

Brown, aka Scary Spice, gave birth to Angel Iris Murphy Brown on April 3 and says she always knew that Murphy is the child's father.

Scary and Eddie dated last summer, but in December Murphy told a Dutch TV show that he was no longer seeing Brown and said, "I don't know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test."

Murphy initially refused to take a paternity test, and according to Mel B, Eddie has never seen the baby. 

Dead-beat dad or what?!

Perez Hilton shut down

indeepshit.jpg

Perez Hilton is in some deep shit.  The photographers who are suing him for misuse of their photos are trying to cut him off at the source by going straight for the companies that host his site.  On Tuesday, Perez Hilton was shut down for several hours after the Australian company that hosted his site dropped him.  On Wednesday, the site was back-up on someone else's server.

Perez, born Mario Lavandeira, is the target of several lawsuits from paparazzi and publishers who say he uses their photos and videos without consent and without paying.

Those suing Lavandeira say he has refused to pay fees to license the photos or to even give them credit for snapping the pics.  

Perez says he has a right as a journalist to use the images for free saying his commentary constitutes "fair use" and is protected by copyright law.  At PerezHilton.blog, you'll find photos of your favorite (and least favorite) celebs with crayon like drawings and writings similar to the fine artwork on the picture accompanying this post.

X17online.blog co-owner Brandy Navarre says her company has sent more than a dozen notices to the company that was hosting PerezHilton.blog before Tuesday demanding that copies of the copyrighted photos be removed.

"They quickly realized it wasn't worth taking on this liability just to host this one client who was a repeat infringer," Navarre said Thursday.

On Tuesday, that company Crucial Paradigm sent a harsh letter to Lavenderia warning him of what was about to happen.

"Please note that with any other provider this would have been done a long time ago, and moving your site to another provider will not solve this issue," the letter read. "Continued abuse is leaving us more liable each day, which we can't afford."

Perez Hilton is being sued by x17online and other photographers who have unsuccessfully tried to get a judge to issue an injunction on his site yanking it off the web until the issue is resolved.

Perez, who is a friend of gaysocialites.blog, can't comment on the situation.  His attorney Bryan J. Freedman issued this statement:

"Having lost its attempt in court to stop perezhilton.blog when the judge denied their injunction attempt, X17 now seems to brazenly admit to resorting to threats and intimidation in an attempt to shut down the Web site," Bryan J. Freedman, Lavandeira's lawyer, said Thursday.

His site is now hosted by a company called Blogads, which places ads on various Web blogs, including gaysocialites.blog and PerezHilton.blog.  Now the photographers are evidently going after Blogads.

This has to stop, because now you're steppin' on my toes!  Perez's lawsuit could make history and create new guidelines for bloggers. 

In an ideal world, we could all just work peacefully.  We always remove photos when asked, but we also see Lavenderia's point.  Blogging is somewhat of an expression.  You do it to tell what you think.  By doing so, it sometimes helps to use and alter photos.  It's not like we are trying to write a piece for the New York Times or the Village Voice. 

But then again, we aren't all PerezHilton.blog getting hits by the billion each day.

Maybe one day...

Paris calls Seacrest from jail!

In her second telephone interview from the slammer, Paris Hilton called up to Ryan Seacrest for an E! exclusive.

In the interview, Paris says she is somewhat glad that she ended up jail, because it has changed her life in a positive way.  That's a completely different song than she was singing the day she was sent back to the click after her brief release for house arrest.

I'm almost embarrassed to say that I may actually like the new Paris Hilton!

Meanwhile, the networks are battling it out over Paris' post-prison interview.  ABC even says they lost bidding to NBC, because they weren't willing to enter a “high six-figure deal” with Ms. Hilton’s family.

Rick and Kathy have gone from hotel managers to socialite managers while their daughter has "out of touch."

"In a way, I'm really glad this happened, because it changed my life forever," Hilton said in a nearly 10-minute call from Century Regional Correctional Facility. (Read excerpts from the conversation.)

According to the newly reformed party girl, her days of serving as a pop-culture punchline are over.

"I just realize that the media used me to make fun of and be mean about," she said. "Frankly, I'm sick of it. I want to use my fame in a good way."

She said her time on the inside has made her far more appreciative of life's little luxuries.

"I'm so much more grateful for everything that I have, even just to have a pillow at night or food or anything," Hilton said.

As someone accustomed to far more commodious digs, Hilton acknowledged that her initial days in jail were difficult, confirming, as first reported by E! Online, that she suffers from claustrophobia.

"I'm claustrophobic, and my cell is really small. It's hard. There's nothing to do but basically sit. A room with a bunkbed and a toilet and a desk," she said.

"I was going a little bit crazy in the beginning. I'm getting used to it now."

Now, with just days left on her sentence, Hilton said she's "really proud" of herself for making it through and is looking forward to what lies ahead.

"I feel like I can't wait to start a new chapter of my life. It feels really great even though I really don't like it here," she said.

As for what she plans to do when she gets out, Hilton has only simple pleasures on her mind.

"I will definitely get a good meal, because the food in here is absolutely inedible and horrible," she laughed. "But I just can't wait to see my family and actually just give my parents and my sister a hug, because they've been visiting me and I've been behind that bulletproof glass. So I haven't even been able to give my dad a hug for Father's Day. 

"I just can't wait to see my family and have a nice meal and be in my own bed and appreciate all the things I took for granted and never really thought much about," she continued.

Prince William gets birthday gift from late mother

Prince William is probably the most eligible bachelor on earth today, his 25th birthday.  Wills is now eligible to receive $500,000 each year from his late mother Princess Diana of Wales multi-million dollar estate.

Prince William and his younger, hotter brother Prince Harry are entitled to their share of Princess Diana's fortune when they turn 30, as stated in her will.  However, according to Associated Press, at the age of 25, William is allowed access to the interest and other income related to the $13 million that he inherited from his mother.

William's Clarence House office declined to comment on what Prince William planned to do with the money, which comes to between $500,000 and $600,000 a year.

Prince Harry, is eligible for the same cut on his 25th birthday.

In addition to the fortune from their mother, Prince William and Prince Harry, are both second lieutenants in the British army, earning a salary of $44,000 a year.  They also receive money for accommodation and other expenses from their father, Prince Charles.

Their housing, of course, is covered.

Isaiah Washington says they should have fired the gay guy

 

Isaiah Washington who was recently fired from "Grey's Anatomy" following his coming out as a homophobe says ABC "fired the wrong guy."  Even though Washington called former co-star T.R. Knight a faggot, he believes T.R. should have been the one fired.

Washington is blaming Knight for perpetuating the drama to land himself a more concrete role with a bigger salary.  He told the Houston Chronicle that Knight should have been the one to get the axe.

"I have to clear my name," said Washington. "I'll start from the beginning. I'm telling everything. So here's the truth."

Washington even said he is considering a lawsuit, but says he isn't mad.

"I'm not angry," Washington told the Chronicle. "I'm disappointed."

A spokeswoman for ABC did not immediately return a phone call Thursday by The Associated Press seeking comment.

Famed DJ Steve Sidewalk, the drag queen?

Rumors have been flying rampant this gay pride week in New York City that one of the big apple's most well-known pop DJ's, Steve Sidewalk, made an appearance at a New Jersey night club in drag.

gaysocialites.blog can confirm that the club Coliseum advertised that Sidewalk would infact perform as a female under the name Donna Dollar-Drinks on Tuesday night. 

Insiders say Sidewalk performed the song "Stupid Girls" by P!nk, and an encore of "Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne.

The big question is:  can we expect to see more drag from Donna Dollar-Drinks Sidewalk?  I guess only time will tell.

People do the craziest things during gay pride!

Will a gay man co-host the View?

It looks like having a power lesbian on the panel at the View may have paved the way for a gay man to go where no man has ever gone before - as co-host of the female dominated gab fest.

Insiders are mentioning two names: Mario Cantone and Ross Mathews, according to PEOPLE.

Cantone, a frequent guest on the ABC chat-fest, played Charlotte's friend Anthony on Sex and the City; Mathews is better known as "Ross the Intern" from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Both of the men are slated to fill in as guest co-hosts next month: Cantone will appear on The View on the July 12; Mathews will take a turn in O'Donnell's old seat on July 17.

Ross, of course, if friends with previous View moderator, Rosie O'Donnell.  Ross and Ro have appeared on each other's blogs, and O'Donnell even appeared on Celebrity Fit Club to support Matthews in his weight loss venture.

People is reporting that Barbara Walters favors Cantone.

This could be anyone's ballgame, but the producers are smart.  The longer they drag this out, the longer the View remains in the headlines.

Bob Barker: No Rosie Endorsement

Bob Barker says he DID NOT mean to endorse Rosie O'Donnell for his former hosting gig on the "Price is Right".   Barker commented that he had "no doubt" that O'Donnell would make a fine host for the CBS game show last week at the Daytime Emmy's.  Now Bob says that wasn't meant as a plug for Ro to get his old job.

"I have not been asked for my opinion, nor have I expressed one," Barker said. "I think there are several candidates who could do the show, and Rosie is certainly one of them."

Rosie evidently met with the CBS producers Thursday.  Prior to that meeting, O'Donnell told readers of her blog that she "sure would" accept the job if offered.

O'Donnell seems to be the only woman in the running joining a fleet of potential male hosts that includes Todd Newton of the E! network, Mark Steines of "Entertainment Tonight," George Hamilton and John O'Hurley. Variety is also reporting that Drew Carey has added his name to the hat.

Jason Wahler finds a nice girl, talks of cleaning up

Jason Wahler is known for being the bad boy on MTV's "The Hills," but now it looks like he has found a nice girl in Katja Decker-Sadowski.  Jason also says he has hopes of cleaning up his act.

Wahler isn't even 21 yet, and he has already been arrested four times for alcohol-related offenses.  Maybe a good girl will be a way to clean up his act.

According to the Post Chronicle,

Katja, who will turn 19, next month, is a tennis player and a student at the University of Southern California and a member of Delta Gamma sorority, who will enter her Sophomore year in the fall.

Last season, Katja went 9-5 in singles during the fall, reaching the ITA West Regional Consolation final and the Fall Desert Classic semifinals.  A 2006 graduate of The Bolles School in Jacksonville, Florida...she received the Van Etten Bent Award in 2005 and the Sportsmanship Award in 2003 and 2005... she won two doubles national championships while at Bolles and won state titles in 2004 and 2005.

The blonde beauty says that she likes relaxing with family and friends...as well as going to the beach and singing.

Like we said, Katja sounds like a typical all-American girl...right?   

Wahler recently told PEOPLE that he is working on cleaning up his act.  Maybe Katja will be good for him!

Is Paris' prosecutor guilty of double standard?

The man who fought so hard to put Paris Hilton behind bars is very experienced in dealing with those in Paris' shoes.  Los Angeles prosecutor Rocky Delgadillo's wife Michelle committed the same crime.

The difference between Mrs. Delgadillo and Ms. Hilton is that Hilton currently sits behind bars paying her debt to society while Delgadillo got off with a year's probation.

Rocky Delgadillo pushed for Paris Hilton to get the toughest penalty possible for her offense. He demanded 45 days in jail without early release.  In Michelle Delgadillo's case, she pleaded guilty to the misdemeanour charge and was given a year's probation after it came out that an arrest warrant issued in 1998 had never been pursued by authorities.

"When she learned that this bench warrant was active, Michelle took immediate steps to remedy the situation," Delgadillo's spokesman Nick Velasquez said.  

The Times also reported on Wednesday that the Delgadillos had been consistently late in paying parking fines.  

Maybe the Hilton's should exercise the right for citizen's arrest!

Citizen Kane ranks on top at AFI

 

"Citizen Kane" ranks number one on the American Film Institute Top 100 films list.  Unfortunately some of the greats like "Drop Dead Gorgeous" and "Jawbreaker" didn't make the list, I must admit it's pretty impressive to say the least.

By DAVID GERMAIN
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES -- The years have been kind to "Citizen Kane," including the last decade.

The 1941 Orson Welles classic -- the story of a wealthy young idealist transformed by scandal and vice into a regretful old recluse -- was again rated the best movie ever by the American Film Institute on Wednesday.

In the CBS special "AFI's 100 Years ... 100 Movies -- 10th Anniversary Edition," "Citizen Kane" held the same No. 1 billing it earned in the institute's first top-100 ranking in 1998.

There were notable changes elsewhere, with Martin Scorsese's 1980 masterpiece "Raging Bull" bounding upward from No. 24 in 1998 to No. 4 on the new list and Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 thriller "Vertigo" hurtling from No. 61 to No. 9 this time.

Charles Chaplin's 1931 silent gem "City Lights" jumped from No. 76 to No. 11, while the 1956 John Ford-John Wayne Western "The Searchers" took the biggest leap, from No. 96 all the way to No. 12.

"The ones that made the huge jumps are really, really fascinating," said Jean Picker Firstenberg, chief executive at AFI, which has done top-10 lists every year since 1998 showcasing the best comedies, thrillers, love stories and other highlights in American cinema.

"I'd like to think this entire series has had a real influence on what people think about a film like 'City Lights,' 'The Searchers,' 'Vertigo.' Gotten them talking about these films and going back to watch them again, and if they've never seen them, to go watch them for the first time."

Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 epic "The Godfather" ranked No. 2, up one notch from 1998, switching places with Michael Curtiz's 1942 favorite "Casablanca."

Both 1967's "The Graduate" and 1954's "On the Waterfront," which ranked Nos. 7 and 8 respectively in 1998, fell out of the top 10, "The Graduate" coming in at No. 17 and "On the Waterfront" finishing at No. 19.

The other five films in the new top 10 also were among the original 10 best, though they shuffled positions: 1952's "Singin' in the Rain (No. 5 now, No. 10 in 1998), 1939's "Gone With the Wind" (No. 6 now, No. 4 in 1998), 1962's "Lawrence of Arabia" (No. 7 now, No. 5 in 1998), 1993's "Schindler's List" (No. 8 now, No. 9 in 1998) and 1939's "The Wizard of Oz" (No. 10 now, No. 6 in 1998).

The top-100 were chosen from ballots sent to 1,500 filmmakers, actors, writers, critics and others in Hollywood from a list of 400 nominated movies, 43 of which came from the decade since the first list was compiled.

Of those newer films, only four made the top-100: 2001's "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" (No. 50), 1998's "Saving Private Ryan" (No. 71), 1997's "Titanic" (No. 83) and 1999's "The Sixth Sense" (No. 89).

Older films that did not make the cut on the 1998 list broke into the top-100 this time, led by Buster Keaton's 1927 silent comedy "The General" at No. 18. Others included 1916's "Intolerance" (No. 49), 1975's "Nashville" (No. 59), 1960's "Spartacus" (No. 81), 1989's "Do the Right Thing" (No. 96) and 1995's "Toy Story" (No. 99).

Some silent-era classics and other old films may have fared better this time because they are more readily available in good quality restorations in today's DVD age as opposed to the VHS days.

Films that dropped out of the top-100 this time included 1965's "Doctor Zhivago," which had been No. 39 on the 1998 list; 1984's "Amadeus," which had been No. 53; 1977's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," which had been No. 64; 1990's "Dances With Wolves," which had been No. 75; and 1927's "The Jazz Singer," which had been No. 90.

"Close Encounters" director Steven Spielberg had the most films on the list with five, while Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick and Billy Wilder each had four.

The OC's Kelly Rowan set to marry richest Canadian

OC alum Kelly Rowan may be much smarter than I have ever given her credit for.  Rowan will soon be married to the richest man in Canada! 

Being a rich wife won't be to hard for Kelly after playing one on the OC for so long.

TORONTO, June 20 (Reuters) - Canadian actress Kelly Rowan, who played a wealthy wife in television teen drama "The O.C.," is engaged to Canada's richest man, media mogul David Thomson, her representative said on Wednesday.

Rowan, 41, best known for her role as Kirsten Cohen in "The O.C.", met Thomson, 50, last year when she was working on a project in Toronto.

Rowan, who was born in Ottawa, started her acting career in 1980 in a made-for-television movie and has since appeared in numerous television shows and films.

Thomson is the chairman of Canadian publisher Thomson Corp..

Forbes magazine in March this year ranked Thomson as the world's 10th richest person and the richest Canadian with his wealth estimated to be $22 billion.

This is Rowan's first marriage and the third for Thomson, who has three children. Little has been written about Thomson as he prefers privacy and stays out of the limelight.

Thomson recently agreed to buy the London-based Reuters Group Plc for about $17 billion, with the deal awaiting regulatory clearance and shareholder approval.

You go girl!

Bravo picks up William Sledd's online act

Bravo TV is trying to capitalize on the online TV market and celebrate gay pride all at the same time.  Thursday they will introduce YouTube stand-out William Sledd on www.OutZonetv.blog.

If you're like me, you have never heard of Sledd and having him on Bravo's website won't change that any.  However, for those who are looking for advice from a flaming Gap manager, Sledd is your man.

The first "Ask A Gay Man" webisode series hosted by Internet sensation and Gap manager William Sledd, a 23-year-old Paducah, Kentucky native will be titled "Ask a Gay Man: The Wedding/Commitment Cake Edition" and will feature Sledd and his BFF Stephanie, "the best wedding planner in western Kentucky."

Sounds rivoting huh?

Bravo also announced that Sledd will be OUTzoneTV.blog's voice at a variety of gay pride-related events providing commentary and posting man-on-the-street video installments during the course of the week. 

Being a flaming fashion fag in Kentucky is cute.  Being a flaming fashion fag in New York is normal.  He'll blend in quite nicely.

Rosie to meet with Price is Right producers

 

Rosie O'Donnell has made it clear that she would love to replace Bob Barker on the Price is Right.  Barker even endorsed Ro as his replacement over the weekend.  Now, it looks like she'll be meeting with the shows producers this week to discuss the possibility.

Thursday is the big day for Rosie and the producers, but there are evidently a lot of things still left to be worked out.  Rosie lives in New York, and the Price is Right is taped in Hollywood.  Rosie refuses to move west, and the show doesn't have plans to move east.  Sounds like grid lock to me!

Todd Newton of the E! network, Mark Steines of "Entertainment Tonight," George Hamilton and John O'Hurley are all names being thrown around as possible replacements.

OJ Simpson's leaked manuscript lands TMZ in court

OJ Simpson's infamous "If I Did It Book" may have gotten shelved, but that doesn't mean you can't take a peak at it now.  The manuscript leaked, and TMZ.blog published a link with some excerpts.  Now, they find themselves at risk of being held in contempt of court!

The legal trustee who is in charge of the manuscript is asking a judge to hold TMZ in contempt of court.  

"...during the time that the Manuscript was published on the TMZ Website, literally tens, if not hundreds of thousands of people, downloaded the Manuscript, and now hold [the] property on their hard drives, property that is now freely transferable around the globe at the click of a mouse," the trustee wrote in the court papers filed Wednesday. 

Last week, a judge gave the trustee authority to sell the manuscript and give the proceeds to the Goldman family.  

The trustee's attorney is asking the judge to order TMZ to tell where they got the transcript and "to show cause why it should not be held in contempt of this Court...."

TMZ probably doesn't have anything to worry about legally, but I find it funny that Ron Goldman's father, Fred, didn't want "If I Did It" to see the light of day when he thought OJ would make a buck off it.  Now, he doesn't want to see the light of day unless he makes a buck off of it. 

Oh how money changes everything!

Paris Hilton says 'no special treatment' in jail

 

Paris Hilton sent a message from the slammer saying that she is getting no special treatment behind bars. 

Hilton's reps told the celebrity gossip site, TMZ.blog, that Hilton wants the world to know that she is just an ordinary inmate.

Paris Hilton has sent a message to TMZ -- she ain't no one special in the pokey.

A rep who visited Paris today said Hilton wants TMZ to know she's being treated like any other inmate, emphasizing she's getting no special breaks.

We're told Paris is spending time reading "The Secret" and "The Power of Now." She's also reading lots of "fan mail" that has been sent to the jail. She says most of the letters are favorable and it's helping her. She's written responses to some of the letters.

Paris is expected to be released from jail next week.  Ms. Hilton is serving time for breaking probation after a DUI arrest.

Rani Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra engaged

Bollywood star Rani Mukherjee and producer-director Aditya Chopra are engaged and are expected to be married soon!

Evidently Rani and Aditya had a quiet engagement on Monday. The roka took place at the Chopra bungalow where the Sridevi starrer ‘Chandini’ was shot.

Aditya recently split from his previous wife, Payal Chopra. Those two got married in 2001.

Insider sources say that Aditya’s mom Pam Chopra pissed about the engagement because she has a soft spot for Payal.  Rumor also has it that Rani will not live in the Chopra house, instead Aditya will live in a house that Rani recently purchased.

No date has been set for the wedding, since Aditya is in the middle of a divorce from Payal.

NYC Mayor quits republican party

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced on Tuesday that he is dropping his affiliation with the republican party.  Bloomberg joined the GOP when running for mayor of New York despite having been a democrat for most of his life.

“I believe this brings my affiliation into alignment with how I have led and will continue to lead my city,” Mr. Bloomberg’s statement read. “Any successful elected executive knows that real results are more important than partisan battles, and that good ideas should take precedence over rigid adherence to any particular political ideology.”

Quitting the party could be the first step in an Independent campaign for president for Bloomberg.  Mayor Mike has said repeatedly that he has no plans to make a run for the White House, but the New York Times is reporting that his aides are "are working intensely behind the scenes promoting the idea of the mayor’s candidacy and exploring the mechanics of starting an independent campaign."

If Hillary Clinton and Rudy Guiliani win their parties nominations, and if Michael Bloomberg runs independently then three New Yorkers will face off for president.

Bill and Hillary Clinton take a stab at acting (with video)

Going where no man has gone before (making it fit for a women instead) Hillary Clinton released this video on her website as a spoof on the Sopranos series finale.  The commercial ends a month of voting for the official Clinton '08 campaign song that landed a million hits on Hillary's campaign website.

The video led to the announcement of Celine Dion's "You and I" as Hillary campaign tune.

This also paves the way for more creative ways to get to voters and contributors in the day and age of the tech saavy.

A bad day for Debra Opri

It hasn't been a good day for celebrity lawyer Debra Opri.  Opri who is most famous for recently representing Larry Birkhead and Pamela Bach in their paternity and divorce cases respectively.

Birkhead fired Opri just before he was granted custody of the daughter he fathered with Anna Nicole Smith.  Now, Larry is suing Debra because she evidently held on to nearly a million bucks that he earned from Bravo exclusive interviews.

Today, Pamela Bach also fired Debra Opri formally in court.  Pamela went to and filed legal documents substituting Mark Vincent Kaplan for Opri. Kaplan repped K-Fed in his divorce from Britney.

Meanwhile, Opri told TMZ that she was going to try and salvage her image.  Good luck with that!

Coral is a lesbo!

After seeing so much of Coral Smith on MTV's Real World 10 and about a billion "challenges" after that, you would have thought we could have figured out that she was a big ole lesbian!

Coral revealed to Outlook Magazine that she is celebrating pride this month too!

What is your sexual orientation? You dated men on Real World.
Oh, yeah. It’s very cloudy at this point in time. I’m definitely venturing toward my lesbian qualities. It’s been a long time coming. At that time, I was really unsure. That was not the proper venue, the proper platform. To come out to your parents on a fucking reality show, I think that’s just mean, so I didn’t.

Your girlfriend is very beautiful.
She’s not my girlfriend. I’m attracted to beautiful women. Beautiful women tend to be attracted to me. It really seems to work out for me.

You’re coming out more, doing LGBT events?
I’ve always been really supportive of the community.  I just felt it was something I belonged to and had to show up for.  I love doing this kind of thing.  It’s really positive and shows we’re capable and can run shit. Gay men run shit in L.A., honey. If you want to go out with somebody in L.A., they have businesses and money and depth. Gay men are coming up and are very under-estimated.

Do you feel a sense of responsibility now that you’re coming out?
I guess I get a little nervous. Just saying it is a little . . . It’s a little surreal. I’m not scared. I walk around holding hands. It’s not a problem for me, but I do fear backlash to some degree. Everyone has something negative to say, and I don’t really want to deal with it. Other than that, I don’t care. Hell, I’m old.  I’m 28!

Welcome to the family Coral and happy pride!

William & Harry want to reunite the Spice Girls

 

The Spice Girls have tried multiple times to reunite and make that sweet, sweet cheesy pop music once again.  It might take a Royal act to make it happen.

Future King William and Prince Harry the hottie want the Spice Girls to get back together and performce at the concert they are organizing to mark the 10th anniversary of the Princess Diana’s death.

“Prince William is desperate for the girls to agree and they are considering it,” a source told the News of the World.

Evidently the princes phoned up reigning head Spice Posh Vicky Beckham so she can toss the idea around.  The News of the World is also reporting that the boys want Victoria's hubby David to introduce them.

P Diddy, Lilly Allen, Elton John, Bryan Ferry, Duran Duran and Rod Stewart have already signed on for the five-hour concert.

Age of Love kicks off first contestant

 

Tonight kicked off the Age of Love reality show on NBC.  Since I was out covering the HX awards, I missed it...  yes, it's true.  I don't own DVR, but thankfully I have the internet and turned to Reality TV Magazine.

It looks like it was an interesting night as thirty year old Australian tennis star Mark Philippoussis met the contestants that will be competing for his heart on this season's show.

If you don't feel like reading the whole recap, this lady pictured here - Jodie - was eliminated.

In the “Age Of Love,” thirty year old Australian tennis star Mark Philippoussis is initially introduced to a group of seven older women. Mark is caught off guard by the women’s ages, but he handles it well. 

For his first date, Mark took Jayanna, Lynn, and Maria repelling down the side of a building.  Even though Jayanna was initially afraid, she wound up flying down the side of building.  As Mark is off on his date with three older women, six younger women arrive in a helicopter.  While waiting for Mark, the younger women entertain themselves with a hula hoop.

For elimination night, Mark called the women and told Angela, Lynn, Jodie, and Jayanna to meet him downstairs.  As the four women waited on pedestals, Mark called them forward one by one.  Mark told Jodie that he saw her more as a friend than someone he could have something with down the line.  Jodie said “I have to go home tonight, but that’s ok.  That’s ok, I have my sweet little boy to see.  I hoped I’ve helped show that a woman in her forties is sexy and interesting and powerful.  Whoever the right person for me is, he’s out there.”

2007 HX Awards Wrap

There's nothing like an evening under the stars with a bunch of gay superstars, drag queens with running makeup, the stinch of sweaty go-go boys and a bunch of happy Hot Messes!  That pretty much sums up the 2007 HX Awards Live from Lincoln Center in New York City!

The red carpet looked like something out of the scene of Too Wong Foo.  The nominees and spectators trickled in as the VIPs and gay-lebrities were pulled aside by the paparazzi for a photo and brief chat.

Drag Queen of the Year nominee, Mimi Imfurt, even showed up in a black stretch limo with her own private security.

Also seen on the red carpet were Alan Picus, Epiphany, Logan, DJ Adam, Chris Ryan, Lusty J, Jason Preston, Peppermint Gummy Bear, Sherry Vine, HX editor Brandon Voss, Go go boy nominees Brandon and Chase and many more.

The evening opened with a performance by Johnny McGovern that contained more use of the word "faggot" than the set of Grey's Anatomy.

After handing out a few awards (all of the winners are listed below,) reigning Drag Queen of the Year Peppermint Gummybear did a lip sync version of her new single "I Thought You Knew."  Consequently, the new song sounds just like her old one "Serving it Up."  I guess you have to stick with what you know, huh?  But when you're making you music in Johnny McGovern's basement, you gotta do what you gotta do!

On a personal note, I have to thank everyone who voted for Hot Mess at Porky's as the Best Gay Lounge night.  It really means a lot to us!  And of course, we hope you join us on pride night after the parade!

As for shockers and stand-outs...  Other than being pleasantly surprised that Hot Mess won, I was shocked by several of the winners.  I never even thought that Aaron Tanner's Men's Night at Splash was a serious contender for the Best Gay Party, but that party shocked me (and everyone around me) by beating Work at Stereo, Campus Thursdays and The New Saturdays at Avalon.  I was also shocked that Barracuda won Best Gay Bar, but with appearances by such celebs as Fergie and Xtina Aquilera they deserved it.

The stand out presenters of the evening were two of my former co-hosts, Bianca Del Rio and Mimi Imfurst.  Bianca, tacky as usual, drowned out her co-presented Brandon Voss, but kept the crowd giggling.  Mimi just had everyone rolling on the ground.

Perhaps the biggest shocker of the evening involved both of these menly ladies as they were beat our by Sherry Vine as the Drag Queen of the Year. **UPDATE/ RETRACTION below**

The HX Awards are always a great way to kick off pride.  Now get out there and enjoy the Year of the Gay, New Yorkers!

UPDATE:  I apologize that I made it sound like Sherry didn't deserve to win!  That wasn't my intention.  She has been nominated at least 10 times, and she has been performing for over 16 years in NYC.  The reason I thought it was such a shocker was because of the stiff competition by some of the younger queens, and because of the campaigning that was done by some of her competitors.  Congrats to Sherry, and I hope I didn't take anything away from her big win!!  (I actually hope that not that many people saw that including Sherry!!)

The Cruises help the Beckhams say good-bye to Spain

This could very well be Hollywood's next power clique!  Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes helped David and Victoria Beckham say good-bye to Madrid this weekend. 

"Tom and Katie watched David's final game with Real Madrid and then they all went out for a late dinner with Victoria," a family friend tells PEOPLE. "It was a fabulous game, the team won the championship and the meal was brilliant."

Tom, Katie, Becks and Posh went out to dinner at swanky Madrid restaurant, El Xistu and went out dancing and drinking at Shabay nightclub following their high dollar meal.

From the looks of things the Cruises and Beckhams had a lot to celebrate, because they didn't leave the nightclub until 7am!

The Beckhams are taking a vacation before they relocate to Los Angeles, the Cruises are expected to stay in Europe for the wedding of Tom's pal James Packer, the Australian billionaire who flew the Cruises to the Maldives on his private jet for a honeymoon aboard his yacht the day after they wed in Rome.  I wonder what they'll give him as a wedding gift?!

Paris Hilton's final countdown in jail

 

Paris Hilton is expected to be released from jail early next week, and it is untelling what the heiress is going to be like when she is thrown back into the real world.  Twenty some odd days in the slammer can change a girl, ya know?

Paris' parents, Rick and Kathy Hilton, went to visit their jail bird daughter on fathers day and told reporters that Paris made her dad "a beautiful card" while in the slammer.  Rick and Kathy also added that Paris' spirits are positive, but she's been cold in her jail cell.  Maybe she should eat or workout during her hour break.

Perez Hilton is also reporting that Paris has some problems waiting on her when she gets out of jail in the form of angry neighbors.  Citing continual problems with the paparazzi and the buzz, two of Paris' neighbors Christopher Hauk and Anne Goursaud are hiring a lawyer to help deal with all of the drama.

Woe is Paris.  Maybe she'll take a page out of Joe Francis' book and just stay in jail to avoid the rest of her troubles.

More court time for Larry Birkhead

Larry Birkhead got a lot of media attention last week as he made two high profile stops on CNN and Fox News to prove that he is a good father.

Birkhead, who took care of his daughter Dannielynn who he battled Anna Nicole Smith for before her death, is also laughing off allegations that he is being investigated for being a dead beat dad.  Smith's estranged mother Virgie Arthur is claiming that Birkhead isn't fit to care of her granddaughter.

Arthur has also evidently hired security to follow Larry to make sure he is doing a good job with Dannielynn.

"They can follow me to Chuck E. Cheese's and the toy store and the diaper store or wherever," Larry responded.

The first man known as dad to Dannielynn, Anna Nicole's last companion before death, Howard K. Stern is also in Los Angeles hanging out with the baby and Larry.

Larry and Dannielynn are currently living in Anna Nicole's former home while their new digs get ready.  Howard and Larry will head to court this week to discuss Anna Nicole's estate for which Howard is the executor and Larry is the father of the sole heir.

One step closer to being Scary Spice's baby daddy

I'm talking about Eddie Murphy of course.  Scary Spice says that Eddie has taken a paternity test to see if he is infact her baby's daddy.

Scary, born Melanie Brown, claims that Eddie Murphy must be the father of her 2-month-old daughter.  As a matter of fact, Mel B. even put Eddie's name on the birth certificate.

Proper DNA results will confirm whether Eddie's name needs to stay on the baby's records or be yanked off.

This is almost as exciting as the whole Larry Birkhead/ Anna Nicole Smith battle - only in there case, both people wanted lil' Dannielynn.

Scary's baby, Angel Iris Murphy Brown, doesn't seem to be having the same luck.  

If this is anything like the Anna Nicole Smith case, DNA results may be back by the end of the year.

Nicky Hilton drops in for weekly Paris visit

 

Paris Hilton's sister Nicky dropped by Lynwood for her weekly visit with big sis Sunday.  Paris and her boyfriend David Katzenberg were spotted outside the facility by TMZ's cameras.

The last time Nicky visited her Paris, she was visibly upset saying it was all too surreal, like something you would see on TV.

On Sunday, Nicky looked more composed yet not happy that she can only see Paris once a week through a glass partition.

TMZ also noted that Nicky gave the wardens at the jail a small red bag.  Do you think it was a gift for Paris or a gift for the guards?

New Yorker Jill Coccaro gets $29K for false arrest

So evidently, in New York its okay for women to run around topless, and artist Jill Coccaro can attest to it.  Coccaro just accepted a $29,000 settlement for being wrongly arrested for going topless two years ago.

To promote an art show, Coccaro let it all hang out by taking off her shirt.  She was arrested and later released, but due to a 1992 Supreme Court ruling the cops were wrong.

In New York, if men can show off their tits - women can too.

NEW YORK (AP) -- A Manhattan artist arrested by police when she went on a topless stroll 2 years ago has accepted a $29,000 settlement from the city.
   Twenty-seven-year-old Jill Coccaro was charged briefly with indecent exposure despite a 1992 state appeals court ruling that concluded women had the right to be topless if men were allowed to take off their shirts.
   Coccaro, who now goes by the name Phoenix Feeley, bared her breasts on August 4, 2005 for an art-show promotion to cool off.
   Feeley remained in custody for 12 hours before she was told prosecutors were not going to pursue charges.
   Her attorney, Jeffrey Rothman, told the Daily News that his client won the civil rights settlement from the city, which did not admit or deny wrongdoing.
   Feeley told the New York Post that she was not treated well after her arrest. She claimed in an October lawsuit that a police officer yanked her out of a patrol car by her hair and police took her to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
   She told the newspaper she had gone bare-breasted after running the 2004 city marathon without police bothering her.

Kristy Swanson arrested for assault

Skating with Celebrities star Kristy Swanson was arrested late Saturday night accused of assaulting her companion and former skating partner, Lloyd Eisler's ex-wife.

The former Buffy star is evidently out to slay her romantic competition.

PEOPLE got the story from Swanson's rep: 

"I had to go the police station where I had an appointment at 9 p.m. to begin the process of being arrested," she confirms.

Swanson was released on $500 (Canadian) bail. Officers escorted her into the police station in Kingston, Ontario, after Eisler's ex, Marcia O'Brien, filed a complaint against Swanson.

Swanson, 37, claims she was attacked by O'Brien in front of Eisler and O'Brien's children. The actress's rep, Michael Sands, says Swanson plans to press charges against O'Brien, saying that police took photographs of her back and other parts of her upper extremities to document the injuries.

O'Brien declined to comment, except when asked if she attacked Swanson, she replied: "Why have I not been charged?"

Eisler and Swanson met during the taping of Skating with Celebrities.  Their love connection created a huge scandal since Eisler left his pregnant wife to pursue a relationship with Swanson.  O'Brien had a boy in September.

"Jen's hot, I had such a crush on her through 'Friends' and you know, she's single. Demi Moore's bringing the toyboy back," Brody said.

27 year old Brody may have some stiff competition from Jennifer's current love interest, British model Paul Sculfor.

Rumor has it Jenn and Paul will make their first public appearance together on Tuesday for the grand opening of the new Los Angeles restaurant ONE Sunset.

Posh's diet secret: Edamame

One of the world's most beautiful couples, Victoria and David Beckham, are known for their fit bods and pretty faces.  But how do they do it?

When Posh travels, she always picks her hotel based on their healthy eating habits, but the Daily Mail is reporting that Vicky's secret is edamame.

When Victoria and David Beckham came to town last week they stayed at their favourite hotel, Blakes.

The hotel is popular with stars because of its gym and healthy menu.

But I hear weight-conscious Posh had her own tucker. ‘Victoria had several boxes of edamame brought in specially,’ I’m informed.

‘The green soybean is Victoria’s nibble of choice.’

Now we know the secret to her tiny 23in waist.

What does Becks do to look so damn sexy?!  Please someone tell us now!

Fantastic weekend at the Box Office

It looks like it was a fantastic weekend at the box office for "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer".  Reuters is reporting that the 20th Century Fox flick brought in over $22.8 million this weekend while "Nancy Drew" only brought in $2.9 million.

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - 20th Century Fox's "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" doesn't appear to be suffering from any sequel fatigue.

The PG-rated, Tim Story-directed follow-up to the 2005 Marvel Comics-based "Fantastic Four" rode a strong wave at the box office on Friday, opening to an estimated $22.8 million in 3,959 theaters, according to the boxoffice tracking site BoxofficeMojo.blog. If it maintains its momentum over the weekend, it could top the opening number posted by the original of $56.1 million.

Warner Bros. Pictures' PG-rated teen detective yarn, "Nancy Drew," starring Emma Roberts, the weekend's other new wide arrival, was greeted with just an estimated $2.9 million, which left it in virtual dead heat with Sony Pictures' animated "Surf's Up" for the fifth-place slot.

Rounding out the top five, Warners' "Ocean's Thirteen," which topped the box office last weekend, took in an estimated $6 million for the day, for a second-place showing.

Universal Pictures' relationship comedy "Knocked Up" was third with an estimated $4.6 million, as its domestic gross climbed above $80 million.

Buena Vista's "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" claimed the fourth spot with an estimated $3.3 million.

Tennessee drag racing accident takes several lives

Officials in Tennessee say seven people are dead and many more are injured following an accident at a drag racing exhibition Saturday night.

The crash happened an "exhibition burnout" when a driver spins his tires to make them heat up and smoke at the Cars for Kids charity event in Selmer, located about 80 miles east of Memphis.

Amateur video of the crash shows the car's engine revving loudly before the drag car sped down a highway lined with spectators on both sides. After a few hundred feet, the smoking vehicle skidded off the road.

“Bodies were flying into the air,” Selmer Police Chief Neal Burks said.

Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman Mike Browning said the seven who died included a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old. At least eight others were taken to hospitals and many others had minor injuries.

The car involved has been driven by drag racer Troy Critchley, of Wylie, Texas; but no word yet on whether or not Critchley was driving the car at the time of the accident.

Barbara Walters loves hetero-sex

Evidently Babwa Walters has missed talk of hetero-sex on the View's hot topics section while Rosie O'Donnell was the moderator of the show.

During a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, Barbara said spit out the quote of th week:

"We've had a lot of fun with them and there are some things we're able to discuss that we weren't able to discuss with Rosie, like heterosexual sex."

During the same interview, Barbara also said "[Rosie is] a great talent and she brought a lot of excitement and controversy."  For that reason, Barbara said they are taking their time replacing O'Donnell.

Barbwa also reminded us that there are two empty seats at the glass table, so we might see two new faces this fall.

Michael Jackson said he was 'robbed'

Michael Jackson says he was ripped off by the people who he thought were his closest friends and advisors during his kiddie-sex trial, but luckily he was saved by the likes of Rev. Jesse Jackson and billionaire Ron Burkle. Whew!

The battle over Michael's money is detailed in a sworn deposition he gave for a federal lawsuit scheduled to go to trial this week.

The seven hours of transcripts obtained by the Daily News reveal that the agitated entertainer was convinced his money woes were fueled by a cadre of disloyal advisers who stole from him while he was busy fighting criminal charges.

The Gloved One even fingered a man close to his older brother Randy as a key villain.

It was an ordeal that left Jackson bitter about the industry in which he's spent his entire life.

"It's full of sharks, charlatans and imposters," he said in testimony taken last summer in Paris.

"Because there's a lot of money involved, there's a bunch of schmucks in there," Jackson said. "It's the entertainment world, full of thieves and crooks. That's not new. Everybody knows that."

Jackson himself may even be called to the stand to testify.

Rod Stewart married his long-time girlfriend model Penny Lancaster in a private ceremony Saturday on the Italian Riviera.  Italian news is reporting that Stewart and Lancaster gathered a few friends and family in a 17th century villa to tie the knot.

The wedding was a small ceremony gathering a few friends and family and held in a 17th-century villa, according to ANSA and private Sky TG24 news. Afterward, the newlyweds went back to a yacht just off the coast where they have been staying, ANSA said.

The couple already has a son together.  This was the third wedding for the 62-year-old rocker, best known for hits like "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?"

Celeb poker hot spot robbed, then busted

It's like a catch-22.  Who do you call when someone robs your illegal gambling club?  The Gottis? No! I guess your only choice is to call the cops.

That was the situation at a New York gambling house frequented by such stars as Alex Rodriguez, "Sopranos" star Robert Iler and several NBA players.

The gunmen busted in at around 12:30 a.m. and ordered the club's "bank" and roughly 70 patrons to hand over their cash.

Andy Griffith makes comeback at 81 in "Waitress"

Andy Griffith is best known for his roles as Andy Taylor or Matlock, depending on what generation you identify with; but now Griffin in making a comeback on the indy scene.

Griffith is only a supporting character in the independent film, "Waitress," starring Keri Russell as Jenna, a top-notch pie maker trying to leave her brutish husband.  Andy steals the show as the cranky owner of the diner where Russell's character works.

Griffith said that Shelly, who also stars in the film, "knew exactly what she wanted to hear."

Both Andy Griffith and "Waitress" are getting rave reviews.

Nicole Richie: Pregnant and getting married?

Rumors are flying that Nicole Richie is pregnant, and Page Six has already set it stone.  Now, the New York Post gossip section is reporting that Richie is engaged to her baby daddy Joel Madden.

NOW that she's pregnant, Nicole Richie is getting hitched, too. The tiny "Simple Life" star and her boyfriend, Joel Madden, showed up for the YSL Pool Party to benefit Center Dance Arts at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday night - and she was conspicuously wearing a huge diamond engagement ring. "It was one big rock surrounded by more diamonds," our source said. Richie refused to talk about the ring. Meanwhile, Madden was "overly attentive to her - keeping his arm around her all night - and repeatedly asked her if she was OK." The cozy couple ate everything on their plates, lobster salad and lamb, but refused all alcohol, which our snarky spy called "a first for her."

Maybe Nicole really is pregnant.  She has never really been one to turn down liquor!

Socialite and gossip reporter Claudia Cohen dies at 56

New York socialite and gossip reporter Claudia Cohen passed away on Friday. 

Claudia's high profile life often landed her in the gossip columns as well mainly due to her marriage to and divorce from billionaire businessman Ronald O. Perelman.

Cohen was 56 years old, and the cause of death was ovarian cancer, according to Chris Taylor, a spokeswoman for Mr. Perelman. 

Most recently, Cohen was a regular entertainment correspondent for the syndicated talk show “Live With Regis and Kelly” and its predecessor, “Live With Regis and Kathie Lee.” She was also previously an entertainment reporter for “The Morning Show” on WABC-TV.

She also worked as a reporter for Page Six in 1977, serving as its editor from 1978 to 1980.

Bob Barker says Rosie O'Donnell could be his replacement

Bob Barker told reporters back stage at the Daytime Emmy Awards that Rosie O'Donnell could replace him on "The Price is Right."  However, he isn't sure if CBS has considered replacing him with a woman.

"I believe they're going to have a meeting with Rosie," Barker said backstage Friday night at the Daytime Emmy Awards, where he won his 19th trophy.

"She knows the show," he said. "There's no doubt in my mind she could do the show. Now, whether they want a lady host, I don't know. I've never heard that discussed. As far as I know, they've only auditioned men."

Men on the list of possible replacements include Todd Newton of the E! network, Mark Steines of "Entertainment Tonight," Mario Lopez, George Hamilton and John O'Hurley.

I, personally, would much rather see Rosie!  In many eastern markets, "The Price is Right" on CBS is up against "the View" on ABC at 11am.  I bet Ro would kick their asses!

Goldman family goes after OJ's canned book

Ron Goldman's family can yank OJ Simpson's cancelled book titled, "If I Did It" in which he recounts the details of how he would have killed Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown, if he committed the murders.

On Friday, a judge ruled that Ron's father, Fred Goldman, is allowed to go after the rights of the book if he wants.

The rights to the book, which the former football star titled "If I Did It," are owned by the Lorraine Brooke Corporation, run by Simpson's daughter, Arnelle. The company has filed for bankruptcy.

Judge A. Jay Christol accused Simpson of setting up the company in his children's names in a scheme to "defraud his creditors," calling the effort a "sham."

He ruled that Fred Goldman, who filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Simpson in 1997 after Simpson was cleared of criminal charges in the murders, is now the corporation's largest creditor. That civil suit found Simpson liable for the deaths, and ordered him to pay $33.5 million in damages.

If Goldman wins the rights and decides to publish the book, he evidently wants to rename the book "Confessions of a Double Murderer."

That would serve OJ right!  Who thinks about "if" they killed someone?

Retired Bob Barker wins 19th Emmy

Newly retired game show host, Bob Barker, won his 19th Daytime Emmy award on Friday night beating out a competitive field that included last year's winner, Alex Trebek of "Jeopardy!"

Barker, a legend in his own time, received 3 standing ovations throughout the night.  Barker retired after 35 years as the emcee at "The Price is Right" and 50 years on daytime television.

Bob even opened the show when he introduced the evening's first presenters while on the arms of "Barker's Beauties," models from his show.

Ellen Degeneres hopes prison changes Paris Hilton

Talk show host Ellen Degeneres said she hopes prison makes Paris Hilton a changed woman.   On Friday night backstage at the Daytime Emmy Awards, Ellen said she hopes that prison changes Paris' partying ways.

The hotel heiress told Barbara Walters in a recent jailhouse phone call that she wants to stop acting dumb because "that act is no longer cute."

She's not getting anywhere doing that," DeGeneres said backstage Friday night at the Daytime Emmy Awards.

"If that really is an act, if she really was playing dumb, than what does that say about our society that we're celebrating someone who was successful because they're not smart?

"I just think it's a bad sign and she shouldn't contribute to that. It's just amazing if that was an act the whole time."

Ellen even said she would have the same discussion in person with Paris on her talk show.

GaySocialites Exclusive! Audiogasm Pre-Release Music Review: Kelly Clarkson's "My December"

American Idol has been one of the most disappointing TV series for me. Throught the course of it's broadcasting, it has turned out a number of promising, but in the end disappointing, musicians. It has even unleashed some musical horrors (i.e. William Hung) on the world. For all of it's hype and appeal, I always end up not watching it at all. This wasn't always true, however. The first season of the show was new and fresh, and at the end, a truly talented musician was crowned the first "American Idol." Kelly Clarkson is the only AI winner whos music I really love, and that's why I was really excited to hear her upcoming third release "My December" (to be released June 26th, 2007 on RCA Records).

More...

If you love the jilted-lover attitude Kelly Clarkson pulls off so well with her stunning voice, this CD is perfect. It opens right away with the driving "Never Again," giving a feeling of empowerment in the face of an ex-lover who has moved on after betraying you:

I hope the ring you gave to her
Turns her finger green
I hope when you’re in bed with her
you think of me
I would never wish bad things
But I don’t wish you well
Could you tell
By the flames that burned your words
I never read your letter
Cause I knew what you’d say
Give me that Sunday school answer
Try make it all okay

Kelly Clarkson 1In general there are no big surprises on this album. Clarkson doesn't deviate too far from the sound of her previous work. I don't mean to say that is a bad thing, as all of her music is filled with her powerful pipes and a lot of emotion. There is a little of the retro 80's throwback sprinkles in a few of the songs (as is popular right now), like "One Minute" and "Judas."

One of my favorite pieces in the album is toward the end, the definitely country-themed "Yeah." Being a down-home country girl herself, Clarkson seems to feel very comfortable with this genre and it shows in this song:

Lay back, enjoy the fall lover I won't hurt you
I take it all on if you trust me
Don't hesitate let it go, let me know, baby show me
I don't read minds but I'm trying my best to read yours

Yeah
Let me know, let me know
Yeah
Let me know, it's all for you

At the end of the day, "My December" is a great album all around. Whether you're a hardcore Kelly Clarkson fan already or just a pop music listener, you should check it out. One has to wonder though, with the cancelation of her tour and letting her manager go, what is the future of this yet to be released gem? Keep an eye on gaysocialites.blog and I'm sure we'll all find out soon enough!

The all inspiring Esera Tuaolo

     In life, there are few that inspire us. There are very few that make us think, feel and be thankful. Last Sunday I attended gay pride Rockland county, my local town’s pride. I was able to meet Esera Tuaolo, a famous football player that has recently outed himself. Tuaolo played on many teams including the Greenbay Packers.

 

    It is never easy for one to come out. To break open that closet and never go back. These are challenges every GLBT person will face within their lives. However, as a celebrity you are in the spotlight a lot more. You are not only the focus but the main focus. You are the talk of the town. As for Tuaolo, he was not only famous but a famous football player. A role that most feel is played by a straight man. Yet in the year 2007 there are more gays in the sports industry then we know. Many feel one that comes out as an athlete will lose their fans. I see it as, gaining new ones and losing ones not worth having.

 

     Tuaolo was featured in Rosie O’donnell’s Family cruise. A vacation thanks to Rosie that allows the GLBT to take a cruise with their family. Tuaolo was interviewed with his long time partner Mitchell Wherley and their twins. As I watched the special, I noticed how different Tuaolo was. He was such a family man, so caring and genuine. 

 

       Celebrities are very different on screen and off screen. When Esera Tuaolo did his speech I was incredibly inspired. He spoke of his childhood in Hawaii and what it was like growing up gay and in the closet. Tuaolo sang for us and his voice is one of a beautiful angel. There was a question and answer period in which I simply thanked him for being a great role model. As he was about to do some signings, I went up to him and shook his hand and told him it was a pleasure to meet him. I have never met someone with such a presence. Not only does he stand tall in height, but in confidence as well. Confidence in not only coming out of the closet on his own, but in inspiring others to do so.

Barbara Walters gets a star!

 

View co-host and dinosaur ABC journalist Barbara Walters got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week.  The vetran TV personality was placed between American Idol host Ryan Seacrest and the girl group Destiny's Child.

"This strange alignment makes me hip and hot," Walters joked during a ceremony attended by her View co-hosts Joy Behar and Elizabeth Hasselbeck.

"I have to say that my producers are very happy about this star because they can all walk over it and one of them is going to sit on it," Walters added.

Other well-wishers included Police Chief William Bratton, Walt Disney Co Chief Executive Bob Iger, and Kathy and Nicky Hilton who were probably sucking up for Paris to get the View co-host job.

This week on 'Paris in Prison'

Believe it or not, but Paris Hilton makes more news behind bars than the average celebrity.  This week Paris called up Barbara Walters, was transferred AGAIN, didn't eat or drink in jail, was rumored to be in the running for the View co-host job and had high profile meetings with her parents and sister.

Over the weekend, Paris called Barbara Walters from the click to proclaim that she is a changed woman.  Hilton told Babwa that she realized acting stupid wasn't cute, and she planned to use her time for better things when she was free.

After not eating and drinking for a few days out of fear of a potty photo being taken, Paris finally started to show signs of improvement.  As a result, the folks at the medical jail where she was staying referred Ms. Hilton back to her cell at Lynwood.

Meanwhile, on the outside, rumors started flying that Paris Hilton may actually be in the running for the View co-host job based on comments Barbara Walters made on her radio show.  Paris' mom and dad even attended the ceremony to unveil Barbara's star on the Walk of Fame.  Suck ups!

Over the weekend Nicky Hilton, Paris' younger sister, stopped by the slammer and left in tears.  I guess seeing her socialite sister in an all orange jumpsuit and no make-up was frightening.  Her parents, Rick and Kathy, visited on Tuesday and pissed off all the "commoners" by skipping to the front of the line.

Now Paris sits back in her jail cell.  Let's see how she makes headlines this weekend.  Maybe she will throw a rave in the lounge.

Gay governor and his wife face off

 

Former gay New Jersey governor James McGreevey and his estranged wife Dina Matos McGreevey are going at it again!

Dina says her book isn't selling because of his accusations of homophobia, and Jim says its because of her bad taste in clothing. 

TRENTON, N.J. - (AP) The estranged wife of former Gov. James E. McGreevey claims that his accusations of homophobia have hurt her book sales. He blames her taste in clothing.

Dina Matos McGreevey, who is in the midst of a bitter divorce from the former governor, has charged in court papers that his comments calling her homophobic harmed the sales of her recently released memoir.

But in a letter to a family court judge, McGreevey blamed his wife's May 1 interview on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," citing "her awful appearance" in "an inappropriate and ill-fitting ballgown with a plunging neckline."

That's totally the gay equivalent of 'I know you are, but what am I?' I can't make this stuff up!

GaySocialites love HX Magazine!

Thanks to HX Magazine for quoting us as source in their HomoDish about Lily Allen popping up at Porky's last week for Hot Mess.

Okay, it’s six letters, but we were also into Puerto—as in Rico. With that parade taking over Manhattan, we can assure you that Escuelita was the place to party this weekend! But even some of the whitest bars in town tried to get in on the action, like Hot Mess at Porky’s, which offered free drinks to anyone rockin’ PR style. Sassy Brit songstress Lily Allen wasn’t flashing her flag, but still got the VIP treatment. Show queens that we are, we were too wrapped up in Tony mania to make it; luckily, our gaysocialites.blog gave us all the scoop. Word has it that Allen’s pal Jason Preston-Jacobs diva-ed out when DJ Steve Sidewalk had the nerve to spin “Rehab” by Lily’s rival Amy Winehouse! Steve apparently hadn’t gotten the list of “no-no” tracks that Jason had submitted. Anyhoo, in the midst of the drama, Shortbus cutie Peter Stickles was also spotted running around in his undies.

Everyone is talking about Hot Mess and my arch nemesis Jason Preston.  This week we'll celebrate his spawning at Hot Mess, so come out and say Happy Birthday to Jason and whatever celebs he has in tow this week.

Angelina Jolie addresses her weight loss, apologizes to media

 

Angelina Jolie doesn't normally talk much about her personal life, especially her personal appearance now that she's a goodwill ambassador and mother.

However, at the New York premier of her movie, A Might Heart, she explained to reporters that her weight loss isn't something she did intentionally nor does Jolie actually want to lose weight at all.

"Someone saying to me that I'm thin is not a compliment. I've always been lean and this year I lost my mom and I've gone through a lot. I have four kids and I finished breastfeeding - it's been hard to get my nutrition back on track. Instead of people saying I look like a person dealing with something emotionally, they assume it's because I want to fit into skinny jeans," Angelina explained.

Angelina has also been in the news for having members of the press sign an agreement before they were allowed to speak with her. She has since apologized and blamed it on someone else.

Jolie's attorney took the wrap saying the document was intended to protect her.

Is Nicole Richie pregnant or not?

Everyone is asking whether Nicole Richie is pregnant or not after pictures like this one have been snapped as the Simple Life star is out and about.

You never can tell, Nicole was chubby once and this whole anorexic skinny thing is relatively new to her in the grand scheme of things, but Page Six is reporting that Nicole is eating for two.

NICOLE Richie is being coy on the question of whether she's pregnant, but a good pal of hers says she's definitely carrying Joel Madden's love spawn. "Nicole is kind of hoping her pregnancy will keep her out of jail," the friend said. Richie is facing time due to a DWI arrest earlier this year. But friends are concerned and "wondering if she can carry the baby to term because of her weight issues," we're told. A rep for Richie didn't return calls.

If being rich can't keep Paris Hilton out of jail, then being pregnant can't keep Nicole Richie out of jail.

Could it be, at all possible, that she has just decided to eat for a change?

David Hasselhoff wins custody of his kids!

 

David Hasselhoff emerged from the courtroom Friday to announce that he had won full custody of his two teenage daughters ending a long running custody battle with his ex-wife Pamela Bach.

"The judge said, 'Enough is enough,' " Hasselhoff said outside court after a hearing.

Bach left the courthouse with her lawyer, Debra A. Opri, and declined to talk , saying they were prevented from doing so by a court order.

Hasselhoff and Bach have been splitting custody of the girls until now.  Hasselhoff even lost visitation rights briefly after a drunken video of him taken by one his daughters surfaced on the web earlier this year.  They were later restored as he apologized and the Hoff admitted he had learned his lesson.

The couple got divorced in August, 2006.

As it turns out, "Obama Girl" is an actress who has posed in Maxim, FHM, and Elle.  She also told ABC that she was recruited by the writers of the song to act in the video.

Either way, "Obama Girl" is hilarious and has become an instant internet success!

The Saturday night scene changes in NYC

  John Blair tipped off gaysocialites.blog a few weeks ago on a story that the fag rags are now starting to report.  Beginning June 30th, Avalon will be thing of the past as Blair moves his Saturday night party to Splash.

This leaves some of New York's top promoters and many gay nightlife fixtures looking for a new job.  gaysocialites.blog  can exclusively report that we have the scoop on where Blair's Avalon partners will be working after the church doors close for good.

Both Alan Picus and Michael Formika Jones are retreating to familiar grounds as the Avalon Saturday run comes to an end. 

Picus says he will be returning to Rush where he successfully promoted a Saturday night twink fest for more than 5 years under the previous management and the old name Heaven.  Picus will join up with some familiar faces at Rush including yours truly, Steve Sidewalk and Miss Alixandria in an attempt to revive the "scene" for those under 21 as Rush is always 18 to enter.  Alan also tells us that Chris Ryan will move from Avalon to Rush with him.

Formika is headed back to the East Village invading Boysroom with his nightclub celbutantes Amanda Lepore and Cazwell

Alan's new party at Rush kicks off during Pride weekend on June 23rd as he simultaneously says goodbye to Avalon.  Formika's party launches the following Saturday, June 30th.

Who knew so much change could look so familiar?  It's going to be an interesting summer, to say the least!

Campbell Brown leaving NBC for CNN

NBC's superstar Weekend Today anchor, Campbell Brown, is leaving the peacock to take a new job at CNN according to reports on Friday. 

This means CNN is likely to shuffle their line-up leaving Paula Zahn and Lou Dobbs wondering what time they need to report for work!

Campbell Brown's contract is up with NBC at the end of June, and her move to CNN could leave the network with the opportunity to pick up ground during the competitive 8pm time slot. 

Which ever anchor fills the 8 p.m. slot faces some stiff competition as it is the most competitive hour in cable news, with Fox's Bill O'Reilly and MSNBC's Keith Olbermann both out rating CNN.

Jail welcomes Paris Hilton back

Paris Hilton got a warm welcome back to Lynwood this week.  The folks at TMZ.blog snapped this banner hanging from the Los Angeles jail where Paris will evidently be serving the rest of her sentence, unless the hotel heiress has another mystery medical condition.

Paris was transferred back to the all-women's lock-up because her condition was declared stable after a week in a medical ward, a sheriff's official said Thursday.

Hilton is expected to serve at least 23 days assuming her 45 day sentence is cut for good behavior.

 a status achieved not only by her nine-figure earnings but also via Internet ubiquity, press clippings, magazine covers, shout-outs on TV and radio and the other "popularity metrics" that factor into Forbes' analysis, based on the past 12 months.

Tiger Woods took the third spot followed by Madonna the highest athelete and musician respectively.  The Rolling Stones and Brad Pitt rounded out the top 5.  Brad's other half, Angelina Jolie also made the list at #14.

No summer tour for Kelly Clarkson

I'm sad to report that things aren't looking too good for my favorite American Idol Kelly Clarkson. In a series of what seems to be bad luck, Kelly canceled her summer tour Thursday.

That string of bad luck started when Kelly bumped heads with music mogul Clive Davis over her upcoming album. Then just a few days ago, she fired her manager. Now, Clarkson is canceling her summer tour.

She released this statement to her fans on Thursday:

"I can't tell you how much I've been looking forward to getting out there to perform for y'all. In the craziness of the music business, performing is what I look forward to doing the most, so it really is disappointing for me to have to tell you that I won't be coming out to tour this summer. The fact is that touring is just too much too soon.

But I promise you that we're going to get back out there as soon as is humanly possible to give you a show that will be even better.

Thanks for all of your love and continued support.

- Kelly"

Let's just hope these are merely bumps in the road!

Paris Hilton doing more time than most

Paris Hilton has already done more time in jail than most people with a similar probation violation according to a Los Angeles Times report out Thursday.

So then how is it that everyone keeps saying that Paris is getting special treatment?  Don't get me wrong, I think Ms. Hilton should be treated just like everyone else who breaks the law.  However, I'm not sure the judicial system should make an example out of the socialite.

Paris was moved back to her cell today after spending nearly the last week in the medical ward.  TMZ is reporting that Paris has panic attacks in small spaces. 

I hope she can tough it out for at least a few more days.

Looks like I've pissed off Lily Allen

It looks like I have caused a bit of controversy.  By the looks of her MySpace Blog, I find myself hoping that I don't run into Lily Allen in a dark alley.  Evidently, I have Ms. Allen questioning whether or not she even wants to be a celebrity at all!

In response to the blog that I wrote about her after Ms. Allen and I bumped into each other at Hot Mess on Sunday in NYC, Lily is lashing out blaming all of her bad press on Marc Jacob's on-again-off-again boyfriend Jason Preston (who claimed to be with Lily that night!)

Not only is Lily pissed at Jason and me, but the singer is also a bit peeved over rumors that she was spotted in a bathroom stall with Josh Harnett.

Brit songbird Lily Allen was a hot mess Tuesday night at Roseland Ballroom for her only New York City concert date. Smoking and chugging shots onstage, the rambling singer kicked off her sneakers, stumbled over her gown and forgot the lyrics to her own songs. 'See, I told you I was going to mess up,' she told the crowd, who were already unhappy because she was two hours late to the stage.
In between fits of giggling, Allen found time to mock an ex's boyfriend's 'size' and even dedicated her song 'Everything Is Wonderful' to 'the rich ass----- who live in Washington, D.C., and up our taxes.' Allen canceled all but four of her 21 announced U.S. concert dates, citing exhaustion. But she wasn't too exhausted to carry on partying after the show at the Beatrice Inn, where she ran into Josh Hartnett.
According to two witnesses, the actor was even gallant enough to escort Miss Allen inside the bathroom. What a gent!

Then, Allen quoted my blog and below is her response by way of MySpace.blog.

Titled:  FUCK OFF , FUCK OFF .

This is all bullshit . doors opened at 6.45 on monday and I had two support acts . Anyone who thought i was going on earlier , im sorry you were missinformed . I would never turn up two hours late for a gig .......EVER . id been in my dressing room since four o'clock that afternoon anyway its not as if id leave 3000 people out there for no reason . I did apologise to everyone for forgetting my words on " not big " , and I also explained that it was a psychological thing that happens to me on stage . I guess its like premature ejaculation , the second you start thinking about it the second it all goes wrong . I actually thought it was a really good gig and really enjoyed myself . I did not get drunk but your right i did smoke a ciggarette on stage , and for that i should have apologised . After the gig i went to the "spotted pig" with my friends and various members of my family , it was really busy so a few of us left and went to the beatrice inn , this nonsense about josh hartnett is exactly that . nonsense

on saturday morning i cancelled a gig in austin , and i really am sorry for doing that I dont think I have ever cancelled a gig the same day as a show before , i was ill , i wont go into the details as it's a bit gross , but if I had gone , i wouldnt have been able to sing . That satuday I stayed at home of course because i was ill . On SUNDAY however I slept all day and then went out for dinner with my dear friend Kim on our way home we dropped into this place called Porkys , if you had read above you would think Im a total asshole . I would never ask to even be sat at a vip table . I went to Kanye Wests birthday party last week and there was this kind of red carpet where the celebrities pose for pictures before they go in . The publicist girl turned to me and sort of ushered me down and asked me to pose , i was petrified they'd all start asking me who I was , not take a picture and then start laughing at me . And i dont believe in VIP anyway , so why the hell would I want to sit in a vip area with a bunch of people who think they are more important than anyone else . And I mean please , come on enough about me supposedly hating Amy now , its boring and untrue. Oh and by the way I don't have "people" i was with emily my friend of 15 years , kim my friend of 5 years . That jason preston guy wasn't even with us .

The thing is , im not going to write here so often now . this used to be one of my favourite things to do . I could come on here and vent how i feel honestly and get feedback from you guys . But the tabloid fucks have ruined it . Everything i write here gets twisted and rewritten buy a bunch of lazy fucks who havent got anything better to write about . And the truth is I don't want to be in their fucking stupid magazines and daily fuck rags . Infact I hate it , i dont want to be a celebrity , I am a singer , I write songs , thats it . I don't sleep and take drugs with famous people( i have a boyfriend ive been with for nearly 3 years ) , I don't go to film premieres . I don't go shopping in the paparazzi hotspots , so please leave me alone . Write about something interesting , and that actually needs to be alked about . I don't want to live in a world where the most interesting thing is Paris Hilton and " how shes doing in jail " . Why do we care , seriously ? Guys the world is MELTING , we are KILLING innocent people , so we can steal their oil , killing them. 400000 people are dead and 2.5 million have no home in Darfur .............. but then again Lindsay did work out at the gym this afternoon and thats what really counts .

While I'm glad Lily is suddenly concerned about worldly affairs, I am sad to see I have ruined her blogging fun :( 

I decided to call up DJ Adam (one of the Hot Mess promoters) to see what he had to say about Ms. Allen's visit to Porky's.  Adam said he actually enjoyed Lily's company so much that he ended up meeting up with her posse (sans Jason Preston) again Tuesday night after her concert.

"Lily Allen was a total sweetheart," according to DJ Adam.  "All the fuss that occurred at Hot Mess was the result of one overzealous fan.  She was as sweet as can be and never demanded anything, it was the psychofant (who shall remain nameless) that was making these demands in her name.  She and her friends were completely unaware that any of these things were going on," added Adam.

Alright Lily, don't kill the messenger and don't stop blogging!  The "tabloids" need you!  And in the future, you can contact me directly at . After all, I am just a lazy fuck with nothing better to do!

Kisses. 

Maybe we should all just hate Jason Preston together?

Kelly Clarkson fires her manager

The original American Idol Kelly Clarkson seems to be cleaning house after rumors spread of a battle between she and record mogul Clive Davis over Kelly's upcoming album.

Now, Page Six is reporting that Clarkson has fired her manager.

KELLY Clarkson - the "American Idol" winner who was at war with Sony BMG boss Clive Davis over artistic control of her third album - has fired her manager, The Firm's Jeff Kwatinetz. "Kelly has clearly seen the light," laughed a Davis crony. Clarkson, who's sold 11 million records, has insisted on writing all the songs on her third album and spurned the tunes by other composers which Davis, "the man with the golden ears," was offering her. "Kwatinetz, a co-producer of Kelly's upcoming album, led her down the road of recording without the benefit of Clive Davis' magic and collaboration with hit-making songwriters," our source said. "Clive was trying to stop her from jumping off a cliff." Kwatinetz, who treated Clarkson like "a little sister," was said by a pal to be "shocked." "She's not happy, and she can't fire Clive, so she fired Jeff," said the source.

Let's hope this is just a minor reshuffling and not the beginning of Kelly's breakdown, shall we?

Lou Pearlman captured in Indonesia

The man behind Backstreet Boys and N'Sync has been caught after running from the law!  Lou Pearlman is accused of stealing tons of money from innocent people, and it looks like the former music mogul fled to Indonesia where he was caught early Thursday morning.

Pearlman is being transported to Guam, the nearest US territory, where he will stand before a judge.

Earlier this week, Pearlman's possessions and those associated with his Trans Continental companies were auctioned off to raise more $200,000.  That's not nearly enough to cover the millions of dollars of debts claimed in bankruptcy by numerous banks and more than 1,000 individual investors.

Can you say "Bye, Bye, Bye?"

Paris Hilton transferred from med ward back to slammer

In a press conference held this morning, the Los Angeles Sheriff's department announced that Paris Hilton has been transferred back to the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood around 11:00pm on Wednesday night.  That's the same place where Paris almost had a mental breakdown before her temporary release last week at this time.

Authorities decided Hilton was well enough to leave the medical ward at Twin Towers jail in downtown Los Angeles.

It seems as though Paris Hilton has shown improvement since receiving the proper medications and has thus been classified as "medically stable."

The last time Paris was locked up at Lynwood, she was in a solitary cell in a special needs unit.  I assume she has returned to those digs.

Sheriff Lee Baca said that he did not fall to political pressure to move the hotel heiress back to the cell that almost pushed her over the edge last time.  The decision was evidently made by the Twin Towers medical staff.

Many sources are reporting that Hilton is having "sever panic attacks" today since being relocated.

Britney Spears wants your help!

 

Britney Spears is evidently going to try this comeback thing one time, and it looks like she really will produce an album.  Of course, she needs help ya'll. 

Britney wants the fans' halp choosing the name for her new album. On her website, Spears lists some lame choices. 

The catch is that you have to join her fan club (for $25) to vote.

Are you that hard up for cash Britney?!

Backlash from Paris Hilton's special treatment

Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca may seem tough on the outside, but I bet he is sweating bullets deciding how to explain why he released Paris Hilton from jail after only serving a few days of her 45 day sentence.

Baca cited an unnamed medical condition that was too hard for the hospital staff to control  They said she had "issues" and needed special attention.  Now, Paris seems to be doing much better.  With claims that Hilton may soon leave the medical ward and return to her cell, Baca is probably finding it very hard to come up with a viable excuse.

The jail has also come under fire for hurrying Rick and Kathy Hilton to the front of the line when they went to visit Paris on Tuesday.  Some family members waited longer than 4 hours to see inmates as Rick and Kathy were whisked to the front of the line.

If that isn't special treatment, then I don't know what is.  I think it would be hard to disagree at this point, and don't give me that "it's because of who they are" bullshit.  They're still visiting a criminal.

Too bad Sheriff Baca is shopping around for multiple reality show deals, otherwise he may have sparred us from the drama and released Paris for "over crowding."

What happened to the good ole days?

Spielberg endorses Hillary Clinton for prez

Hillary Clinton picked up a high profile endorsement on Wednesday from filmmaker Steven Spielberg.

After donating money to John Edwards, Clinton and even co-hosting a fundraiser for Barack Obama, Spielberg says he is solidly behind Senator Clinton. 

Spielberg's spokesman, Andy Spahn, said he made up his mind after several talks with the former first lady.

"There hasn't been any discussion about the next steps," said Spahn, who said Spielberg is about to go into production on a new movie. But, he said, he "will certainly consider requests from the campaign in the months ahead."

Many thought that Spielberg had already jumped behind Obama by co-hosting the previously mentioned fundraiser with David Geffen.

They must have thought wrong!

The Posh Campaign for Reality TV

Victoria Beckham aka Posh Spice has a video crew following her around to document her transition to life in Los Angeles.  But, have you noticed that she has been everywhere and doing crazy things to draw attention to herself like having lunch with Perez Hilton and cloning herself in Katie Holmes?  And who said this Spice Girl isn't sporty?  Posh even threw out the first pitch at the Dodgers - Mets game.

Here's the deal... her reality show was originally slated to air 6-8 episodes, then it was floated to Bravo... now it's back on NBC.  The catch is that it's only one hour long!

Posh knows marketing.  If Vicky creates enough of a buzz around this one show and shoots the ratings through the roof, then maybe just maybe NBC (or at least Bravo) will pick up a few more episodes. 

I know I want to see more of Posh, especially if we get to see her yummy hubby David Beckham.

"Coming to America: Victoria Beckham" will air on July 16th on NBC. Will you be watching?

At least Katie didn't bleach her locks blonde like Victoria did!

Video of Larry and Dannielynn Birkhead on Larry King Live

Larry and Dannielynn Birkhead appeared on the Larry King Live show on Tuesday night.  Here's a portion of the interview. 

In another segment (not shown here), Birkhead says that Anna Nicole Smith's mother Virgie Arthur is still fighting for custody of Dannielynn.

That baby is so darn cute!  Dannielynn has Anna Nicole's eyes.  It's almost scary.

Notice towards the end of the video, Larry King snaps at Dannielynn not to touch the microphone.  Watch it there Larry.

I hate to say it, but it looks like Larry Birkhead was putting on a big ole show.  Regardless I hope they're happy.

NY governor considers legalizing weed!

New York Governor Eliot Spitzer says he has changed his mind regarding his previous opposition to legalizing medical marijuana.  According to the Sun, he says his opinion has "evolved."

I knew I loved Governor Spitzer when he announced plans to legalize gay marriage, but the Spitz could be one governor that we'll never, ever forget!

Governor Spitzer said yesterday that his opposition to legalizing medical marijuana has "evolved" and that he would consider supporting legislation allowing sick people to use the drug to alleviate their suffering.

During a debate last year with his Democratic primary opponent, Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi, Mr. Spitzer, then the state attorney general, said he was opposed to medical marijuana.

Yesterday, when asked about his position on the issue, Mr. Spitzer said, "We've taken a hard look at it over the past number of months, and I'm open to signing a bill that is properly structured for appropriate use based upon the evidence that has been presented to me."

Lawmakers say a medical marijuana bill allowing sick people, with permission from their doctor, to possess up to 12 plants and 2.5 ounces of the drug is likely to pass the Legislature before the end of session on June 12. New York would be the 13th state to have a medical marijuana program.

Now, I have tons of issues... surely one of them merrits medical ganja!

John Blair announces new party

 

It's official, but you already know this nightclub scoop because you heard it here first either on gaysocialites.blog or by way of HX magazine.  John Blair is closing his Saturday party at Avalon to move to Splash.

Blair made the announcement on his website featuring a flyer announcing that the Avalon party will end during gay pride on June 23rd.

Another flyer also announces his move to Splash, and a grand opening that will feature DJ Hex Hector on June 30th.

As Blair told gaysocialites.blog exclusively, this move is a safe bet in a dying New York night life scene.

"Nightlife in New York is going through a BIG change.  The city is making it very hard for large clubs to stay in business," Blair says.

"We feel Splash is right in the middle... not a big club but not a small one either," John added.

I can't help but notice that none of the Avalon hosts (i.e Brian Brady, Chris Ryan, Amanda Lapore, Logan, Cazwell, etc) are mentioned on the new Splash flyer.  We can exclusively report that both Chris Ryan and Logan have joined the staff at the Notorious Saturday party at Rush, just down the street from Avalon - effective immediately.

I also notice that Blair's partners at Avalon, Alan Picus and Mistress Formika Jones aren't mentioned either.

I guess this means Blair will not only face competition from his former DJ Peter Rauhofer over at Stereo, but he'll also likely have to face Formika and Alan where ever they land.

This could be the revival that New York's nightlife needs.  A little competition never hurt anyone!

More trouble for Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis

As Joe Francis sits behind bars in a Nevada jail, the lawsuits keep piling up.  Two Florida women have sued the "Girls Gone Wild" creator and his film company, claiming that a sexually explicit video was released without their consent.

In the lawsuit filed earlier this week in Panama City, Florida Brooke Pastolic and Christina Brose said they were lured on a "Girls Gone Wild" tour bus by the promise of getting some free clothes.  Once aboard the bus, they lawsuit claims that Brooke and Christina were given alcoholic drinks even though they were minors.

Evidently the cameramen then coerced the women into exposing themselves and engaging in sexual activities, all while promising that they would not use footage in a video.

Now, Pastolic and Brose have appeared on two separate "Girls Gone Wild" DVDs.

The women claim the footage was used without their consent, and if they did give consent, it was obtained illegally by "Girls Gone Wild" representatives who were pumping them full of liquor.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

Shar Jackson and K-Fed deny pregnancy rumors

Shar Jackson, says she is not pregnant with another one of Kevin Federline's spawn.  As a matter of fact, Jackson's reps tell US Weekly that the star of the Ex Wives Club, is not pregnant at all.

Federline's rep also insists the rumors are "not true."

The erroneous story originated in this week’s Star magazine, which reported that Jackson, 30, is six weeks along with Federline’s child.

Federline already has four children too many.  K-Fed knocked up both Shar and Britney Spears twice each.   

Jackson and Federline, 29, have two children together, a daughter Kori, 4, and a son Kaleb, 2. The Ex Wives Club star also has two children from a previous relationship.

Federline also has two sons with Britney Spears, Sean, 21 months, and Jayden, 9 months.

So the pregnancy scare is just a rumor.  Thank God for small favors!

Pentagon wanted 'Gay Bomb?'

While the Bush administration wants to destroy all gays, the Pentagon has come up with a way to capitalize on homosexuality.

San Francisco's CBS 5 News is reporting that the Pentagon has actually explored the idea of creating a 'Gay Bomb."  The idea is to bomb the enemy with "strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior."  While the enemy's male soldiers are rompin' around like homos at a bath House, the US would strike the naked horny warriors.

U.S. troops would have crossed the enemy lines and conquered the battlefield in the most effortless and peaceful way ever conceived.

The Pentagon even had a file and a case study on this so-called Gay Bomb.

It seems as though the plan was scrapped.

MTV Real World star dead at 25

MTV’s The Real World has lost another one of their alumni.  Frankie Abernathy, who was featured on The Real World: San Diego in 2004, died over the weekend at her parents home in Wisconsin.

An eccentric character, Frankie, wasn't afraid to show off her tattoos and piercings. She wouldn't get near large boats, and to deal with emotional pain, Abernathy would cut herself.

Frankie also had the lung disease cystic fibrosis which lead to several hospital stays each year.

MTV is reporting that Abernathy died on Saturday at the age of 25. 

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s office said the cause of death is pending the results of an autopsy and toxicology report, due in a month.

A memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Webb-Freer Funeral Home, 205 S.W. 17th St. in Blue Springs, Wis.

Abernathy is the second “Real World” star to die, following Pedro Zamora, who died of AIDS in 1994.

Britney Spears is a walking peep show

Since she was VERY unsuccessful at reviving her career with a lip syncing tour, Britney Spears has decided to resort to her old ways -- flashing photographers.

Over the past few days, Britney has been letting it all hang out all over the place.  From boob shots this weekend, to flashing pink panties on Tuesday.

Spears had been partying at Jimmy's Club in Hollywood and was photographed slipping out of her green satin dress Monday night, revealing her right breast to the world.

Can Britney Spears possibly make a comeback using her damaged goods?

Look at the bright side, at least she is wearing underwear now.

No babies for Jennifer Aniston

Contrary to recent reports in the media, Jennifer Aniston says she isn't baby shopping.

Some bloggers and TV programs (tsk, tsk Regis and Kelly) reported this morning that Aniston had already adopted a child from an unknown agency. 

OK! Magazine's even reported on their cover that Aniston was inspired by Sheryl Crow and new "boyfriend" Paul Sculfor to adopt, it just isn't so. 

Those reports were wrong.

"It is completely false. Jennifer has not met with any adoption agencies," Jen's publicist told US Weekly.

I guess Brad got the right to adopt in the divorce.  That is, after all, Angelina's thing!

More kids for K-Fed?

All the world needs is more little K-Fed's running around, after all we see well Mr. Federline takes care of the children he already has (yes, that was sarcasm).

However, it looks like Kevin has knocked up his ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson once again. The former Mr. Britney Spears already has two kids with Shar.

She's into her seventh week, and at the instant I write this he doesn't know. Star magazine is saying she's hoping this brings them back together as a family. Ugh. Oy. Eee-yewww. Kevin the Insect.

You'll remember that K-Fed also has two kids, Sean Preston and Jayden James, as the result of too much liquor and long nights of humping former pop tart Britney Spears.

God help all these kids!

Isaiah Washington speaks about being fired!

Isaiah Washington hasn't really had much to say since word broke that the homophobe got fired from Grey's Anatomy, but now Washington is speaking OUT to Entertainment Weekly.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How are you feeling about what happened last week? Did you think it was fair?

ISAIAH WASHINGTON: I don't know if it's a question of ''fair.'' I'm saddened by the outcome. I did everything that the producers and the network asked me to do. I came back under great duress and stress, and thought I was doing the job I was hired to do. I thought that was going to speak for my future at Grey's, but apparently that wasn't the same vision that the network and studio had for me.

Why do you think the decision was made by ABC? Was Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes happy about it?

I knew she was aware of the decision. But you have to understand that she's at the helm of one of the top-rated scripted shows on television.

Were you in touch with Shonda after you were fired?

She called me on Thursday of last week [June 7] and told me that I would not be returning to the show. Just like she personally called me and invited me to the show. It was full circle.

There are rumors you may file a lawsuit against ABC.

I don't know anything about that.

Have you heard from many of your castmates?

No. Everyone is still on vacation. I don't expect to hear from my castmates. I did talk to Chandra Wilson and I got a text message from Kate Walsh. Everyone's doing their own thing. People are still trying to enjoy their summer before they get back to the grind. I think a lot of people are out of the country. I'm still getting calls from people discovering that this change has occurred.

Would you consider you and T.R. Knight to be on good terms?

I don't know. You have to ask T.R. that.

Would you be open to cameo on Grey's?

If Shonda calls me and says, ''Look we want you to do something for Grey's Anatomy'' I probably would not hesitate. But I don't really see that happening.

How do you think this is going to affect your career?

I'm working right now [on the indie film, The Least of These]. I can only take one day at a time. I can only apologize so many times. I can only accept so much responsibility. All the players involved have taken care of what we needed to take care of in-house -- and the media took it in a different direction. I hope that everyone is happy for the outcome for Isaiah, but Isaiah will go on and do what I love to do. And I have to go about the business of letting people know what's written about me is not the truth. I'm merely an actor, a husband, and a father who's trying to do a great job and be very grateful and understanding that I'm in a very privileged position. This isn't a time for me to be looking back; it's only a time for me to be looking forward. I just hope people can understand in the industry and otherwise that it's a horrible misunderstanding what transpired with our show and it was blown out of proportion. If the naysayers out there feel that some justice has been served and that they're happy with the outcome, so be it. It's incumbent on me to take what I do, do it well, grow from the experience, and move on.

Do you have any concerns about being labeled as difficult as an actor?

Hopefully I'll have an opportunity to address a lot of that down the road. It'd be very cleansing for my soul to let the fans and the general public see a side of me that I feel was horribly represented in the press.

What type of offers have you received?

I've gotten a ton of offers in both film and TV, and now my agent Ben Press and I are just sorting through all the options. There is one network in particular that's very interested. But I don't want to say anything specific until it's a done deal.

Would you work with ABC again?

[Laughs] I don't know. That's up to ABC.

Don Herbert, Mr. Wizard, loses cancel battle

Television's "Mr. Wizard," Don Herbert, who made science fun for generations and generations of children died on Tuesday in his Southern California home.  Mr. Wizard was 89 years old.

From 1951 through 1964, Watch Mr. Wizard delighted young viewers with the joys of science on a set built like a simple workshop. Herbert would demonstrate experiments using household items and encourage kids to "try this at home."

Herbert received a Peabody Award for the science show in 1954.

Watch Mr. Wizard was briefly revived in the 1970s and then again in the 1980s, after Herbert retooled the show with a faster pace for the Nickelodeon channel.

Herbert was a drama major in college, but his plans changed during World War II when he enlisted in the Army. As an Army Air Corps officer, Herbert flew 56 bomber missions and participated in the invasion of Italy.

On the official Mr. Wizard Web site, a posting from his family reads that Herbert had lost his battle with cancer and died surrounded by his family — just one month shy of his 90th birthday.

"He really taught kids how to use the thinking skills of a scientist," former colleague Steve Jacobs told the Associated Press.

Born in Waconia, Minn., Herbert was a 1940 graduate of LaCrosse State Teachers. After the war, he worked as an actor, model and radio writer before starting Watch Mr. Wizard in Chicago on NBC.

The show moved to New York after several years.

Gay Socialite Michael Billy gets game show deal

Comedian and GaySocialite Michael Billy is slated to star in the first episode of the US version of the popular British game show "Without Prejudice."  On the show, Billy plays himself and sits on a panel that awards money based on their own prejudices. 

Some of our spy-witnesses have spotted Billy gallivanting around the Big Apple with American Idol's homo-reject Jim Verraros and some sexy boys in tow... if I know Michael, those were probably rented by the hour.

Although we may know him for his alcoholism and go go boy addiction, Michael Billy maintains that he is in involved a monogamous relationship... Is his boyfriend deaf and blind?! 

After a failed movie deal and a few guest hosting gigs on SIRIUS RADIO, this marks Billy's biggest come back.  Best known for his appearances on MTV and the Ricki Lake Show, you may also recognize him from his late night antics at our own GAYSOCIALITES events!

"Without Prejudice" is a definite must see!  It comes on the Game Show Network.  Check your local listings, I can't do everything for you.

Congrats to GaySocialite Michael Billy, reaching for G-D stars... Hell, I'll ride anyone's coat tails. :)

Prince Harry talks about life after Diana

On Monday, June 18th Princes Harry and William will appear on the Today Show and Dateline NBC where they talk about their upcoming concert in memory of their mother, Diana Princess of Wales.

In the interview with Matt Lauer, the princes talk about how hard it has been to deal with their mother's passing and their life in the spotlight.

It is difficult to believe that it is already 10 years since Princess Diana died, so quickly has the time gone. But to her sons it has been an eternity.

The time, Prince Harry tells TODAY co-host Matt Lauer in an exclusive interview, has gone by "really, really slowly actually. It's weird because I think when she — she passed away — there was never that time, there was never that sort of lull. There was never that sort of peace and quiet for any of us — the fact that her face was always splattered on the paper the whole time.

"Over the last 10 years I personally feel as though she has been. . . always there. She's always being a constant reminder to both of us and everybody else."

The interview will air in two parts on Monday, June 18 on TODAY (7-10 a.m. ET) and "Dateline NBC" (10-11 p.m. ET). And an exclusive preview will air on TODAYshow.blog, Friday, June 15.

The concert will take place on July 1, Princess Di's 46th birthday.

'Free Paris Hilton NOW' gives up

While Paris Hilton is serving time in jail (rather- the medical ward of a jail), more and more fans are bailing on Team Hilton.

One group fighting for Ms. Hilton's freedom lead by David Seaman is giving up.

In a statement to the media, Seaman, the guy behind "Free Paris Hilton NOW" said:

"FPHN is finished with its efforts. It's pretty obvious to everyone that the movement won't be able to quicken Hilton's release." Seaman added, "It's been a good run and we wish Ms. Hilton an uneventful and safe time in jail."

Hilton announced on Sunday that she won't appeal her sentence.  Paris is serving 45 days (expected to be cut in half) for violating her probation following a DUI arrest.

Was Michael Moore discriminated against for being a liberal?

Michael Moore thinks he might be a victim of discrimination saying that his harsh criticsm of President Bush may have led to the investigation into his trip to Cuba for his health-care documentary, "Sicko."

Moore even thinks that the government might confiscate part of the film.

Michael's lawyer David Boies wrote the Treasury Department saying that Moore may have been a targeted by the Bush administration. 

Boies wants to see who made the decision to investigate Moore for ossible violations of the U-S trade embargo restricting travel to Cuba.

Moore went to Cuba in March to obtain health care for three ailing Nine-Eleven rescue workers. He claims in "Sicko" that the U-S government had left the workers to fend for themselves against ailments that resulted from their work at ground zero.

Farm Aid concert headed to NYC

Willie Nelson announced Monday that he will be bringing his Farm Aid concert to the big apple this year! 

"Farm Aid 2007: A Homegrown Festival" will hit Randall's Island on September 9th.  Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp and Neil Young will perform on Randall's Island in the East River between Manhattan, the Bronx and Queens.

"Farm Aid is coming to New York because your enthusiasm for family farm food is keeping family farmers on the land," Nelson told reporters.

Since its start in 1985, Farm Aid has raised over $30 million to support local organizations working to strengthen family farms.  The concert has been held in cities such as Lincoln, Nebraska, and Seattle but never before in New York.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined Mellencamp and Nelson in making the announcement. Mayor Mike also unveiled a plan to increase the city's reliance on soybean and corn-based biofuel, which he said will help farmers.

Lily Allen is a HOT MESS

lily2.jpg

Wow, what a weekend.  So much drama, so little bandwidth.

Hot Mess at Porky's on Sunday was definitely a Hot Mess.  The place was packed with D-Listers who think they are A-Listers and their "people" who caused a crazy stir over the dumbest things.

Let's start with singer Lily Allen.  While I spent most of my night explaining to people who Lily Allen is, I dedicated the first few minutes to scratching my head wondering why Ms. Allen was in New York when she was supposed to be in Austin, Texas for the Mix 94.7 summer concert.  Can you say no- show?  Lily Allen is totally a hot mess. 

Not only did Allen's new lap dog Jason Preston attempt to go diva because the VIP area wasn't exclusively available for little Lily, but Mr. Preston also rushed the DJ trailer demanding that music master Steve Sidewalk cut Amy Winehouse's "Rehab" mid-song because Lily doesn't like Amy.  I guess someone is jealous that her overseas counterpart hit big in the US while Lily is... a hot mess.  Regardless, Preston insisted that he sent a song list of no-no's in Lily's presence. Any such list has yet to be found. 

The kicker: No pictures please!  The pic above (with Jason Preston) is the only photo Ms. Allen allowed all night, and it was outside the club on her way to her cab.  I guess Lily didn't want to be spotted with the bottle and cigarette butts on her table, but Jason insists those empty glasses didn't belong to Lily.  She's a good girl ya know.  mwahahahahaha.

Who is Lily Allen?  She's a hot mess!  I would, however, like to thank Jason and Lily for stopping by, to say the least. 

In addition I spotted another d-lister, Peter Stickles, running around in his underwear (why anyone would take all of their clothes off and run around a nightclub half naked is wayyyy beyond me!)  D-listers do the darndest things. Sidebar:  Who is Peter Stickles?  He's a hot mess too.  Stickles was also in the movie Shortbus (ok, I admit - I never saw that movie!)

I was VERY impressed with another high profiler who popped in to show his off his hot mess.  Umbro designer Kim Jones stopped by and was more than charming.  While I haven't worn Umbro's gymwear since junior high, Jones was definitely my superstar of the evening!  Where does one get Umbro's these days?  Swag bags?  hint, hint!

Hot Mess just keeps getting messier.  You never know what celebs are going to pop in, and next week they're celebrating Jason Preston's birthday.  Let's see who he can pull out of the wood work for that one, shall we?

When TV news become reality TV

Fox is taking it to the next level by mixing two of their strong points, reality TV and television news. 

The new Fox reality series stars swimsuit model and actress Lauren Jones as she makes the transition to become a TV journalist in an east Texas city.

"Anchorwoman" star Lauren Jones started her 30-day gig at CBS affiliate KYTX-TV.  There she will co-anchor the 5pm newscast and report local news all while being followed by a 40 person reality TV crew.

Jones has no journalism experience.  The stations says they have put Lauren through an intensive training in how to read a TelePrompTer and report stories on her own.

The station has even considered putting up billboards featuring the WWE Smackdown model in her swimsuit.

Now that's integrity in journalism!

BREAKING NEWS: Paris Hilton's "medical condition" revealed

  Paris Hilton was released last week from jail last week for an unreleased medical condition.  Now we know why the hotel heiress was sent home.  Paris evidently suffers from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and claustrophobia; and that is why she was reassigned to house arrest before being sent back to the slammer.

TMZ.blog is reporting these medical conditions as the reason why Sheriff Lee Baca released her to house arrest against the judge's orders.

We're told Hilton is taking Adderall for her ADD. Although our sources were not specific, we're told Hilton was not receiving all of her medications at Lynwood. As a result, Hilton was having severe panic attacks in jail. There were times she was so debilitated, she could not push the panic button in her cell.

Today, Paris seems to be doing much better.  The website is reporting that Hilton is still depressed, but as we reported earlier... she told Barbara Walters this weekend that she is learning from her mistakes.

David Hyde Pierce celebrates Pride at the Tony's

David Hyde Pierce won the Tony Sunday night for his role in the Broadway musical "Curtains," and the former Fraiser actor didn't forget to thank his long time lover Brian Hargrove!

Watching Pierce, who recently officially came out, thank his lover made me teary eyed and reminded me that this is Year of the Gay!

After thanking a laundry list of industry professionals, Pierce exclaimed...

"My partner Brian, cause it's 24 years of listening to your damn notes. That's why I'm up here tonight."

This is David Hyde Pierce's first Tony win.  He has also brought home four Emmy's for his work on Frasier.

Paris Hilton: I won't play dumb anymore!

 

Paris Hilton must have gotten bored in the medical click this weekend, so she called up her OLD friend Barbara Walters

This is Paris' first official interview from the slammer.

On this morning's episode of the View, Barbara recapped her phone convo with jail bird Hilton saying that Paris told her playing a dumb airhead was an act, and its now over.

"I used to act dumb it was an act, and that act is no longer cute.  It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me," Paris told Babwa.

Hilton went on to say that "God has released" her, and from now on she plans to better things with her time such as take on causes like breast cancer or multiple sclerosis.  Walters also said that Paris told her she might open something called the Paris Hilton Playhouse so disabled children can play.

"I'm not the same person I was, I know now I can make a difference," Hilton added.

Maybe we should send all of the spoiled rotten Hollywood brats to jail?!

I don't mean to sound like a negative Nancy, but I will believe it when I see it!

Paris Hilton to finish sentence in med ward

 

Paris Hilton won't return to Lynwood jail to finish her sentence, instead Paris will stay in the more bearable medical ward.

On Sunday Paris was reportedly doing a lot better since she is highly medicated, can use her phone and was allowed to have two visitors.  Hilton decided she wanted to have her sister Nicky and on-again-off-again boyfriend Stavros Niarchos drop by.

According to TMZ.blog, baby Hilton has stopped crying (some) but what prison can be sad when they can use their phone?  That's totally ridiculous!

'Ocean's Thirteen' washes box office competition

According to Sunday's estimates, 'Ocean's Thirteen' is the big winner at the box office this weekend bringing in about $37.1 million.

The latest "Ocean's" sequel, with hotties George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and funny man Bernie Mac was on the same level as their first two films in the series.

This summer seems to be the summer of the 'thirds' since the unofficial start of the summer movie season last month with "Ocean's," "Spider-Man 3," "Shrek the Third" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End."

"For a third installment, and there's been a lot of them this year, that tells you it's still a solid franchise," Paul Dergarabedian, president of box office tracking firm Media By Numbers, said of "Ocean's" performance.

Disney's third "Pirates" adventure, which had sailed atop the box office for the past two weekends, sank to No. 2 in its third week with $21.3 million in U.S. and Canadian receipts, according to studio figures compiled by Media by Numbers.

The comedy "Knocked Up," from Universal Pictures, fell one spot to No. 3 doing relatively well in its second weekend with $20 million in ticket sales, a decline of 35 percent from its opening weekend.

Opening behind it at No. 4 was Hollywood's latest computer-animated penguin tale, "Surf's Up," from Sony Pictures Entertainment, grossing $18 million.

The animated storybook tale of "Shrek the Third" grabbed $15.7 million in its fourth weekend to round out the top five.

Is Lindsay Lohan a lesbian?

Lindsay Lohan is the latest celebrity to fall out of the closet if her former body guard's story is true!  Lindsay's former keeper says he quit watching after the starlet, because it was too dangerous!

"I have looked after some of the wildest stars in Hollywood — but never anyone as out of control as Lindsay is," says Lohan's former guard Lee Weaver.

Weaver told the News of the World website that Lindsay went on some serious drug binges and even hooked up with other girls on a regular basis!

Weaver, 48, tells how the 20-year-old Mean Girls star:

 

  • ATTACKED a gun-wielding cocaine dealer for ripping her off.
  • SNORTED line after line with Simple Life star Nicole Richie in a TEN-HOUR binge.
  • SLASHED her wrists with knives, sobbing that she "didn't belong on this planet".
  • ENJOYED frenzied lesbian romps with scores of girls she picked up at parties — and even made a play for chart star Mariah Carey.

"She had a total death wish and took more drugs and drank more than anyone I've met," Weaver told the website. "I lost count of the times I thought she was overdosing and had to carry her out of parties. Every morning I'd breathe a sigh of relief she was still alive."

Lee also says that Lindsay would do anything to get her hands on cocaine when she wanted it even it meant putting her life in danger.  Here's one story that Weaver tells about Lindsay's crazy coke escapades.

"In April she asked me to take her to her dealer in Beverly Hills. I knew if I refused she'd go alone — so I took her.

"He was waiting for her in some bushes. Suddenly she started screaming and punching him for selling her short.

"He pulled a gun. I got out and he threatened to shoot me unless I got her to back off — but she kept hitting him. Luckily he got distracted and I punched him down.

"I dragged Lindsay into the car and drove off but she was screaming at me to go back. It was like Pulp Fiction. I knew then she was just too dangerous to be around."

Lindsay isn't the only one that Weaver is blabbing about.  Some other socialites are also falling victim to this media nightmare. 

"Nobody was as wild as Lindsay," he says. "But Nicole came close. Sometimes Paris Hilton would be there but the most I saw her do was drink and strip."

Lohan's cocaine binges are only a part of what Weaver is leaking.  Like Britney Spears, Lindsay seems to go for the girls too.

She used boys for drugs and girls for thrills," says Lee. "I lost count of the women she took back to her hotel room from clubs.

"I even saw her try to grope Mariah Carey's bottom and boobs one night as they danced. One time I went to look for her in a club bathroom and found her in the corner French-kissing a girl."

In addition, Weaver also says that when Lindsay was coming down from a coke bump, she even went after people who pissed her off.  He tells the story of how he once had to pull Lohan off of Jessica Simpson.

"I desperately hope she stops doing drugs but I fear that will only happen when either she kills someone else with her reckless ways — or kills herself," Lee added.

Lindsay is currently in rehab at Promises in California (the same place Britney stayed) following her resent DUI arrest.

Paris Hilton Update: Jail is like the best diet ever!

So, here's why Paris Hilton is going crazy behind bars... she's afraid to pee.

The New York Daily News is reporting that Paris hasn't been eating or drinking in the slammer, because Ms. Hilton is afraid that a jail guard may snap a picture of her on the pot and circulate it on the internet.

"She was absolutely terrified that one of the guards or staffers would get her with the cell-phone cam and it would wind up on the Internet," a source told the News.

I'm surprised Paris Hilton of all people wouldn't want a picture of her on the crapper floating around the web.  I thought this socialite liked to be photographed doing everything!

In addition to Paris' lack of food and water, she also been crying like a newborn baby day and night.  That can't help but dehydrate someone who is avoiding liquids anyway.

Hilton released a statement on Saturday saying she is going to face her decision and has asked her attorney's not to appeal the judge's decision to put her back in the click.

Forty-five days without food or water will make you a skinny bitch I'm sure... if you don't explode from severe colon back-up first!

Hillary Rodham Clinton celebrates Pride month

Hillary Rodham Clinton has joined her closest contender for the Democratic presidential nod in celebrating gay pride.  Barack Obama released a statement supporting the LGBT community earlier this month, and now Hillary is standing and pointing out how she's helped the gays over the years. 

"As we celebrate Gay and Lesbian Pride Month, I want to commend the LGBT community on a historic year that brought our country closer to equality and closer to ending discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. Just a year ago, I worked with my Democratic colleagues in the Senate as well as with LGBT leaders to defeat the divisive and discriminatory Federal Marriage Amendment (FMA). Since then, we not only defeated FMA, but we have been able to make real progress in achieving fairness for all Americans. In fact, since June 2006, New Jersey and New Hampshire became the third and fourth states to adopt civil unions and Washington and Iowa were added to the list of states that outlaw discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. A similar bill in Colorado is expected to be signed into law soon. And in Congress, we are finally on the verge of passing the Matthew Shepherd Act, which would expand hate crimes laws to include sexual orientation and gender identity. What a difference a year makes.

"The start of Gay and Lesbian Pride Month is a great time to celebrate these recent victories but also to reflect on all the work that still needs to be done. Unfortunately, while this is the first time in years that hate crimes legislation has a strong chance of passing both houses of Congress, President Bush has already signaled that he would veto this landmark bill. The truth is we will see little progress for the LGBT community at the national level until we have a new Democratic president. For six long years, the Bush Administration has only seen the families that matter to them. It’s been a government of the few, by the few, and for the few. And no community has been more invisible to this administration than the LGBT community.

"I’m running for president to replace the divisive leadership of the past six years - leadership that views no issue and no family above the reach of politics. America deserves a president who appeals to the best in each of us, not the worst; a president who values and respects all Americans, gay and straight; a president who treats all Americans equally no matter who they are or who they love.

"I’m proud of my record standing up for the LGBT community during my years as First Lady and as a U.S. Senator. But when I take office in January 2009, we’ll finally be able to define success by more than the bigotry we stopped and the bad decisions we prevented. America will finally have a president who moves this country forward. When I am president, we will work together to make sure that all Americans in committed relationships have equal benefits and that nothing stands in the way of loving couples who want to adopt children in need. We’re going to finally expand our federal hate crimes legislation and pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. It is just plain wrong that in the year 2007, people who work hard and do a good job every day can still be fired because of who they love. And finally, we will put an end to the failed policy of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Courage, honor, patriotism and sacrifice - the traits that define our men and women in uniform - have nothing to do with sexual orientation.

"I am honored to have the support of so many people in the LGBT community and look forward to working with the community closely throughout the campaign. Together, we can continue the journey America has been on from the very beginning - to form a more perfect union and realize the goals and values we believe in. That’s the promise of America - and that’s why I’m running for president."

Paris Hilton says she won't appeal

 While reports from jail say that Paris Hilton is losing it, the hotel heiress released this statement saying she won't appeal the judge's decision to send her back to the slammer: 

"Today I told my attorneys not to appeal the judge's decision. While I greatly appreciate the Sheriff's concern for my health and welfare, after meeting with doctors I intend to serve my time as ordered by the judge.

This is by far the hardest thing I have ever done. During the past several days, I have had a lot of time to reflect and have already learned a bitter, but important lesson from this experience.

As I have said before, I hope others will learn from my mistake. I have also had time to read the mail from my fans. I very much appreciate all of their good wishes and hope they will keep their letters coming.

I must also say that I was shocked to see all of the attention devoted to the amount of time I would spend in jail for what I had done by the media, public and city officials. I would hope going forward that the public and the media will focus on more important things, like the men and women serving our country in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places around the world."

Paris will serve the remainder of her 45 day sentence in jail.  This weekend, Ms. Hilton is in the medical ward at Twin Towers, an L.A. County jail facility.

If you've been trapped in a box for the past year, then here's what is going on:  Paris Hilton is in jail for violating probation resulting from a DUI address.  Meanwhile, she's been acting like a big baby. 

However, based on this statement... I will assume that Paris Hilton is already starting to grow up.  I guess we will see.

Paris Hilton 'a train wreck' behind bars

Paris Hilton spent her first night back at the LA County jail.  This time Paris is in the medical ward, and she IS NOT doing well!

Evidently Ms. Hilton hasn't eaten or slept since she checked back into the slammer yesterday.

Law enforcement sources have told TMZ that Hilton has been crying a lot, praying and extremely withdrawn...

She is in a room by herself with a glass door. For her protection, a sergeant guards the door at all times.

TMZ also says that their sources describe Paris' condition today as "fragile" and "despondent" even calling her "a train wreck" while another said she is "sullen and withdrawn."

Her shrink, Dr. Charles Sophy, evidently met with Paris today, but Rick and Kathy Hilton (Paris' parents) haven't come to visit yet. Parents are only allowed to visit the medical ward on Sundays and Tuesdays.

It's a hard knock life in slammer.

Pacha nightclub raided after gay bashing claims

Cops raided New York City hot spot Pacha on Wednesday night and seized evidence after a gay man claimed he was assaulted by the nightclub's staff over the weekend.

The victim was passed out in the West 46th Street club's bathroom early Sunday morning when he was allegedly dragged out and assaulted before being thrown out the back door.

A source said that anti-gay slurs were made during the attack, which is being investigated as a hate crime.

Cops executed a search warrant [Wednesday] night, seizing computers, video equipment and business records.

During the raid, the club's manager, who was not identified, was arrested on a warrant.

A call by gaysocialites.blog to the club revealed that Pacha was not closed, and we have been told it's business as usual.

Could herpes be Paris Hilton's medical excuse?

A judge sent Paris Hilton back to jail less than 24 hours after the LA Sheriff released her.  Now, rumors are flying about what medical problem led to Ms. Hilton being released early. 

Abovethelaw.blog has a source who says it was a major outbreak of herpes!

My friend's brother (who works with [Sheriff Lee] Baca's assistant sheriffs) told me that Paris was released due to a severe, "stress-induced" herpes outbreak. He also said that he heard that the blisters had apparently spread to her anus and had taken on abcess-like features that required more serious medical attention. Thus, after taking into account jail overcrowding, the increasing liability that Paris presents, and Paris's lesions, all things weighed in favor of her being put on home confinement.

Previous reports show that Paris was suffering from mental problems, but nothing has been confirmed.

Paris will be spending the weekend in the medical ward at the jail this weekend.  Maybe that will give her a chance to relieve some stress or get some creme for the itch.

John Blair comments on Avalon closing

Our humble little website has blown up since breaking the story that John Blair is leaving Avalon to join forces with Splash, not only as a promoter - but as a partner in the club.

Again, thanks to HX Magazine for mentioning our exclusive breaking news about Avalon closing in the newest edition; but more importantly we would like to thank John Blair for adding his own comments to the story.

So here comes the REAL reason that John Blair is closing Avalon "with no bull shit."

(to see the comments he is references, please click here)

Very interesting. My friend Billy told me to go and read the "comments" about Avalon. I appreciate Billy posting that email but the nasty things that two of those queens wrote is just so much bull.

You all wait until September and see what is up and open in the city. Peter and Offer are doing well at Stereo. The night they are not there the place is dead. Avalon never gets over 1000 people and the average age is 21 to 30. Avalon is way too big for 1000 people.

Avalon did not ask us to leave, as a matter they made us stay an extra month as was in our contract. They were very happy with us as were the police.......the fact that a gay night was there and not a hip hop party.

The opportunity at Splash had nothing to do with Avalon. It was something that had been in the works for 6 months. Our investment in Splash was because this will be one of the last places standing until we get a new mayor.

Those who say other wise either are stupid or have maybe did not get a gold card and are pissed. HA

Those are the facts with no bull shit.

John Blair

Is Russell Simmons Gay?

Rap mogul Russell Simmons says he isn't gay.  Without disrespecting "the family," Russell denied that rumors claiming he is involved with another man are false!

Gay rapper Caushun claims that Simmons lives a closet gay lifestyle.  Cashun was recently exposed by his manager as a fraud with no musical talent, and during fall out Cashun claimed that he acquired Simmons' Blackberry, which held secret "steamy message" between him and another man.

In an interview with the Dallas Voice, Simmons dismissed the rumor, saying Cashun was using the allegations as a tool to gain fame.

"Which came first? Me losing my Blackberry after being single for a year-and-a-half or Caushun trying to expose me for being gay?" Simmons questioned during the interview.

"Don't drag me into an interview that's lower than my person -- a catty-ass he-said, she-said... I believe gay people deserve dignity," he continued. "Caushun doesn't mean nothing to me. He's not worth it. Essentially he wants to make himself famous. I thought he was a good rapper."

Simmons says he isn't gay, but there's nothing wrong with that.  Russell says he supports our lifestyle, but just isn't into guys!

Gay mayoral candidate could make history in Texas

Did hell freeze over while I have been glued to the Paris Hilton jail coverage?  ABC News is reporting that a gay candidate in Dallas, Texas could be the next mayor and no one seems to be too awfully concerned about his sexual orientation!

Some activist groups are bursting with pride over the fact that Dallas may be on the verge of being the largest city in the United States to elect an openly gay mayor. But at town hall meetings and during fierce debates, his gayness seems a nonissue with voters.

City Councilman Ed Oakley, who has received the endorsement of the Democratic Party, said he has served as an openly gay public official for 15 years here in Dallas. In a debate moderated by ABC affiliate WFAA, Oakley said, "It has never been an issue. It is not going to be an issue. … I am who I am, and people know who I am."

His campaign manager, Craig Murphy, said the fact that the candidate is openly gay "Is totally irrelevant and that is why we are not talking about it."

All candidates running for Dallas mayor have campaigned saying they consider someone's sexual orientation a nonissue.

I bet George W. Bush fell out of his seat when he heard this! 

This is the year of the gay!

Paris Hilton to file appeal

Paris Hilton is obviously not happy with the judge's decision to put her back in the slammer!

Hilton plans to file an appeal to the ruling that she return to jail to finish her sentence either today or Monday, according to TMZ.blog.

Meanwhile Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo is tickled pink with the ruling against Paris.

"This decision sends the message that no individual -- no matter how wealthy or powerful -- is above the law. Today, justice was served," the prosecutor said in a statement.

Paris has been ordered to complete her sentence in jail, but we are still uncertain whether that means she'll still get her sentence reduced to 23 days.

HX magazine spotlights same slut we busted!

This week's HX magazine cover boy, Ben Andrews, just happens to be the same slut that gaysocialites.blog busted fooling around with Marc Jacob's quasi-boy friend, Jason Preston.  The rising gay porn whore is on the HX cover, and inside he talks about his new found career in Michael Lucas' porn biz. 

We here at gaysocialites.blog don't see the appeal with Ben Andrews, but evidently Lucas Entertainment doesn't agree with us.  (That actually makes me feel a lot better!)

The author of the HX article must also need glasses.

"I force myself to focus on Ben’s face. His cheekbones and bright blue eyes make it easy," Steve Guiterrez writes.

In the porno The Intern, Andrews plays a geek who "mixes silliness and smut" according HX, which is also a pretty good description of its star.

Michael Lucas even admits that Ben seems to have slept with everyone in just a few weeks. 

“Within three weeks of being in New York, Ben knows all the downtown celebrities,” Lucas told HX.

Does that mean Ben Andrews is leaving now?  We can really only hope!

Meet J.P. Calderon

First J.P. Calderon starred on Survivor then on the Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency then an 'outing' cover on Instinct.  This week hottie J.P. graces the pages of HX Magazine where he talks about his upcoming appearance at Splash.

HX: What can we expect from your upcoming Splash appearance? A skinny dip in one of the showers?
J.P. Calderon: Maybe. Who do I get to shower with?

Don’t tease me, J.P. I’m fragile. You just got back from appearing at Gay Days in Orlando. Which ride were you most excited to go on?
The water slides at Typhoon Lagoon!  

What would be your perfect “Gay Day”?
Having all my worlds—gay, straight, friends and family—all together. That would be my ultimate day.  

Aw. What’s your biggest OGT—Obviously Gay Trait?
OGT? Being on the cover of Instinct! [Laughs] Just kidding. I’m a big primper.  

If a guy wanted to have a chance with you, what item of clothing must he never, ever be wearing?
There are so many items of clothing. Just keep it simple, clean and tailored to your physique—that’s hot.   

Okay, you’ve made it to the top two of American Idol: Which song do you choose?
India.Arie’s “Beautiful.” I’d be lip-synching, so anything I can pull off would be a saving grace.  

If you were ever forced to do drag, which celebrity would you want to emulate?
I would never do drag. It would cost a lot, so if you’re paying for it, pick the celebrity.  

Who’s your biggest celebrity crush?
Jake Gyllenhaal.  

Imagine you’re stuck on a desert island. Again. Which View host do you choose for a companion: Rosie O’Donnell or Survivor alum Elisabeth Hasselbeck?
Elisabeth is too conservative and Rosie would give me a headache. Can’t I just have the island to myself?  

Nope. Now let’s say they’re both there. Which bitch do you eat first? 
Well, one’s the appetizer and the other the main course— figure it out.

J.P. Calderon, 11pm Sat, Jun. 16 @ Splash, 50 W 17th St, 212-691-0073, splashbar.blog.

According to J.P's MySpace page, he's single!  Yummmm!

Paris Hilton is on her way back to jail!

  This just in!  Paris Hilton is on her way back to jail!  Judge Michael T. Sauer has once again "reassigned" to LA county jail.

Reports from inside the court room said Hilton will go back to jail to serve the rest of her sentence. 

Witnesses from inside the court room say that Paris was literally dragged from the court room by a female deputy.

The judge said he was not given a good enough reason as to why Paris should have been released in the first place.  Judge Sauer said there are "excellent facilities" in which Hilton could get the drugs needed to treat any illness.

As the deputies escorted Paris from the court room, witnesses say Hilton let out a "pretty loud cry" and screamed "mom, mom, mom" saying over and over "this is just not right."

Justice has been served!

From inside the court room with Paris Hilton

If you're just waking up, Paris Hilton was hauled into court this morning in some tacky sweat pants to discuss why she was released early from jail.

TMZ has a reporter inside the court room who filed this report:

Here's what's going down in court right now. Judge Michael Sauer said, before Paris was released, he was contacted by the Sheriff and told they would file a motion to place Paris under house arrest. The judge said the motion was never filed, and added, "There's no way I would have approved it even if I got the motion."

The prosecutor, Dan Jeffries, who is also pissed at the Sheriff, accused the Sheriff of "assuming all three roles of the criminal justice system," claiming "Sheriff Lee Baca is interpreting the law all by himself."

TMZ's Harvey Levin told CNN on Friday that he expects Judge Sauer to send Paris back to jail, but Levin added that he thinks an appeals court will ultimately put her back on house arrest.

ABC uses Hilton fiasco to promote new show

A banner flying over Paris Hilton's house this morning as paparazzi and TV crews swarmed was evidently a publicity stunt by ABC to promote their new show 'Dirty Sex Money.'

The message read “We Love Paris: The Darling Family.”

The show is about a ridiculously rich family whose last name is Darling.

“The absurdly wealthy Darlings of New York, who own lavish properties around the globe and frequently vacation in glitzy locales like London, Milan, the Swiss Alps and their beloved Paris, France have asked him to take over his father’s job as their personal lawyer, but the money that will allow him the freedom to be an altruistic do-gooder is only part of the picture,” as described by ABC.blog.

The show stars Peter Krause (Six Feet Under) as Nick George, Donald Sutherland (Commander in Chief) as Tripp Darling, William Baldwin (The Squid and the Whale, Backdraft) as Sen. Patrick Darling, Natalie Zea (Eyes) as Karen Darling, Glenn Fitzgerald (Six Feet Under) as Rev. Brian Darling, Samaire Armstrong (The O.C.) as Juliet Darling, Seth Gabel (The Da Vinci Code) as Jeremy Darling, Zoe McLennan (JAG) as Lisa, Laz Alonso (Stomp the Yard) as Colin, and Jill Clayburgh (Running with Scissors) as Letitia Darling.

Publicity is publicity darling!

Paris Hilton media frenzy (Photo of the Day)

Paris Hilton's Hollywood mansion is a usual workplace for many paparazzi, but today was probably the busiest Paris' front lawn has ever been!

All of the photographers wanted to capture a picture like this one.  Here is Paris Hilton crying in the back of a police car as she was carried off to the court house to hear her fate.

gaysocialites.blog has learned that Paris didn't think she was actually going to have to appear in court and didn't even put on her make-up and typical socialite wardrobe before Sheriff's deputies cuffed her and hauled her off to court.

As you can see in Paris is in casual sweats, and obviously she is NOT too excited about the possiblity of heading back to the slammer.

Paris Hilton's morning court drama

 Paris Hilton is back in court even as I write this, but there was a lot of drama getting here - as usual when Paris is involved.

Late last night, a judge demanded that Hilton and her attorney appear in court on Friday morning at 9am.  This morning, we got word that Paris would not have to appear in court.  Instead, Hilton would be able to call into the court room to give her testimony and hear her fate.

That was quickly nipped in the bud as prosecutor Dan Jeffries insisted that Paris receive no special treatment.  Judge Michael T. Sauer then ordered that Paris get picked up and transported from her million dollar mansion to the court room.

Again more drama.  TMZ.blog is reporting that the Sheriff's department refused to go and transport Paris to the court room.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the Sheriff's position is that the judge does not have the power to order her to court. The Sheriffs believe they have sole jurisdiction to monitor and control Hilton while she is under house arrest.

The Sheriff's Department says they are the only ones authorized to take her anywhere.

It seems as though the Sheriff lost that battle, because a police cruiser showed up at shortly after 10am PST to pick up Paris.  The hotel heiress was handcuffed and put in the back of a cop car that carried her to the court room.

A judge will decide today whether or not Hilton will continue to serve her 40 days of house arrest or if she will return to the slammer.

Richie Sambora tries out rehab

Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora has checked into rehab!

The 47 year old rocker has entered a treatment facility, a spokesman for Bon Jovi said. 

"Richie Sambora has entered an undisclosed treatment facility in Los Angeles. He asks that you respect his and his family's privacy at this time," said the spokesman.

This hasn't been the best year for Sambora.  Richie and his most recent love interest, Denise Richards, secretly split up in March after dating for a year.  He has also recently finalized his divorce from ex-wife Heather Locklear, and his father passed away in April.

Sambora and Bon Jovi have a new album, "Lost Highway," scheduled to hit record stores on June 19, and are set to begin a tour on June 24 in London.

Paris Hilton's jail controversy widens

Paris Hilton's early release from jail has caused internal controversy at the Los Angeles Police Department. 

The New York Post spoke with LA County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, and he is pissed!

Antonovich said Paris' early release "a mockery of due process." He added, "You're dealing with a spoiled brat acting out to get her way instead of serving time as was adjudicated by the courts."

The LA sheriff is being accused of giving Paris special treatment due to her celebrity status, but Sheriff Baca is defending his decision using Hilton's mental medical condition.

"justice is being served by the decision ... She would still be in the county jail if it were not for the medical advice." And as for her receiving star treatment, Baca told the LA Times, "My message to those who don't like celebrities is that punishing celebrities more than the average American is not justice."

Paris will be back in court at 9am PST.  We'll keep you posted!

Photo proves Britney Spears' youngest son exists

jaydenjamesfirstpicsm.jpg

Well, well, well!  It does look like Britney Spears has two kids after all!  The blond haired kid pictured here on Brit's hip is said to be Britney's youngest son, Jayden James Spears-Federline.

Britney met up with Jayden James and Sean Preston to vacation in Hawaii.  You know Britney is on a lip syncing come back tour, so she naturally deserves a break!

As you can tell, Britney doesn't seem to happy to have been snapped by the paparazzi in this photo.  Until now, we haven't seen Jayden James at all.  I'm expecting him to have some sort of freakish birth defect.  Maybe the other side of his face is green?!

Isaiah Washington fired from Grey's Anatomy

It is truly the year of the gay!  Grey's Anatomy execs have fired their resident homophobe Isaiah Washington

People Magazine is reporting that Isaiah has officially gotten the boot! 

The speculation is over: After a controversial season, Isaiah Washington will not be returning to Grey's Anatomy, his rep and ABC Television Studio have confirmed.

Howard Bragman, Washington's publicist, says Washington's option was not renewed, and released this statement from the actor: "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more."

Bragman did not elaborate on the statement, a reference to the 1976 film Network.

The cast was notified Thursday night of the final decision, which, says a source close to the situation, was a long time coming. In the end, the source says, Washington's behavior made him a liability.

Rumors ran rampant following the season finale – during which Washington's character, Dr. Preston Burke, broke up with his fiancée, Christina Yang (Sandra Oh), and moved out of their apartment – that Washington would not be returning.

The actor first came under fire last fall after getting into an altercation with Patrick Dempsey, during which he allegedly referred to castmate T.R. Knight with a homophobic slur.

Washington later apologized, checked into rehab, met with gay leaders and recently released a PSA decrying the use of hate speech.

They announced earlier this week that T.R. Knight will return to Grey's! 

The faggot wins!

My new favorite swimwear!

Since the moment I saw Andrew Christian products on the Janice Dickinson Modeling agency, I fell in love!  Now, everyone who is anyone is wearing their summer swim wear.  I've seen them everywhere, from the bartenders at Porky's to the pool at the gym.  This stuff is hot!

As a matter of fact, I haven't eaten a carb in over a week in hopes of getting a man who looks good in this Andrew Christian line! 

I'll also share a little secret, the Andrew Christian website is just as hot as the swim wear.  They have their latest swim wear line on the hottest male models ever (like these hotties above!)

Brad Pitt tired of being baby sitter

Have you noticed that Brad Pitt is starting to look closer to his age these days?  Don't get me wrong, but does look closer to his age - yes. 

Rumor has it, Brad, is aging a bit because playing Mr. Mom is wearing him out!  Evidently that's why Angelina Jolie recently announced that she was taking an extended vacation from acting to spend some time taking care of the Jolie-Pitt clan.  And according to a source blabbing to Hollywoodrag.blog, it was all Brad's idea.

"Brad's physically and emotionally tired. Taking care of all the kids is a strain on him.

Brad's load has been extra heavy lately while Jolie has been busy with work and he has been burdened with much of the childcare duties.

They have help. They have nannies, but Brad does a lot of the work himself, he feels he owes the children that. He cooks breakfast, and he cleans up the kids when they spill stuff on themselves. He dresses Zahara and Pax and Maddox for school. This is a lot for a man who, three years ago, had no children," the source added.

The source also says this hasn't put a damper on Brad and Angelina's relationship, and that Brad still loves his kids 100%.  This move is simply to split the parenting duties more evenly. 

Pitt's attorney says this isn't true and that Brad doesn't have an unusual amount of parenting duties.
