After a few turbulent years, Lindsay Lohan finally seems to have a stable, positive life and a happy relationship with DJ Samantha Ronson. Now Ronson plans to write a book about the pair’s relationship and daddy Michael Lohan is not too happy about the prospect. He told E!: “I’ve shut up about this long enough. She’s using my daughter. People never even knew who Samantha Ronson was until she met Lindsay. She was just some L.A. DJ. And now she’s writing a book? I am at wit’s end with this stuff. This is not in Lindsay’s best interest.” This from the man who has wreaked havoc on his daughter’s life with his public divorce from Lindsay’s mother Dina, his DWI arrest, two years spent in prison, and his recent engagement to a woman two years older than Lindsay. The pot continued to call the kettle black by saying: “Let’s just say I hope Lindsay starts opening her eyes and realizes who the people using her are.”

There’s a general rule about how you should deal with your exes in a healthy way: Once you finally admit that it’s over, either move on or pretend to move on and stalk them and their new boy/girlfriends on some sort of social-networking website. But it seems like some people totally don’t get that. Bruce Willis and Demi Moore remain neighbors who hang out, Pink features ex-husband Carey Hart in her latest video – which is about their breakup – and now Liz Hurley is vacationing with Hugh Grant and her husband in St. Tropez. (See pics at GossipGirls.com)
Hurley and Grant famously dated for 13 years before breaking up in 2000, and she even stuck by Grant after he had been serviced by prostitute Divine Brown (No. 63 on our list of the Top 100 Greatest Celebrity Scandals of All Time) in 1995. Even after their breakup though, the pair remain remarkably close, Hurley even made Grant godfather to her son Damian. Hurley is married to businessman Arun Nayar (pictured above), but is so attached to Grant that she had this to say about her relationships: “If I’m alone with Hugh, Arun and Damian, I can turn off my cell phone … No-one else really matters.”
The trio enjoyed dinner with some friends yesterday before setting sail for an evening cruise out on the coast of the French Riviera. Funny, that’s what we did last night, too.
Kelly Osbourne was spotted this week in London with cuts and a black eye , but alas, she’s not another victim of Lily Allen‘s upper cut – you could say she was attacked at home. By a cupboard.
Word is that the reality-star-turned-London-DJ was at home this weekend and reached for a glass in her cupboard when the entire piece of furniture fell off the wall and onto Kelly and left her pretty bruised up.
Of all the things Kelly has talked shit about over the years, who knew her cupboard would be the one to get revenge? Dlisted, by the way, has the real photos of Kelly’s cuts.
Matthew McConaughey is famous for oversharing: Whether his free-spirited self is getting arrested for smoking pot while playing bongos in the nude or telling the world that he DJ-ed and “got tribal” during son Levi’s birth, he’s always good for an entertaining dirty-hippie story. Now we understand where he gets it — his mother. Kay McConaughey (KMac as she calls herself on her website has a new book entitled I Amaze Myself. It’s full of stories intended to inspire, but many of them fall into the TMI (Too Much Information) category. Kay even told Us Magazine that Matthew’s dad, Jim, died while they were having sex. (Hey, it’s how Matt wants to go too.)
The 78-year-old mom tells the rag: “On Monday mornings, he and I often said goodbye by making love. One day, all of a sudden, it just happened. I knew that something was wrong, because I didn’t hear anything from him. Just nothing. But it was just the best way to go!” Better than watching the fourth hour of the Today Show, that’s for sure. If we were Matthew McConaughey, we’d probably be too laid-back to care (or playing the bongos too loudly to hear what our mom just said), but if our parents were this frank about their sex life (and death), we would need some serious therapy.
In 2007, Snoop Dogg was refused permission to apply for a visa to enter Australia because of his criminal record (which includes drug charges, firearms possession and a murder acquittal). Aussie immigration officials have recently had a change of heart though (no doubt ensuring they get honorary membership to the Dogg Pound), by reconsidering giving him a temporary visa for his tour with Ice Cube, scheduled for October. If he is allowed in, the country would require him to attend special counseling prior to his arrival and adhere to a strict set of behavior rules while there (no weed, only Fosters beer?).
A member of the Australian Family Association, Angela Conway, still isn’t having it though, saying that “Snoop Dogg trades in toxic messages of menace, violence, misogyny and lawlessness.” Which, okay, yes, is true. But for a country where Russell Crowe is allowed to roam freely and baby-eating dingoes are par for the course, they sure are selective. Snoop’s approval process is already under way, but the visa hasn’t been made official yet.
After the jump, a compilation of Snoop Dogg faces that wreak of sex, violence and weed — all categorized for your convenience. Warning to Australians: This will scare you!
Daniel Radcliffe will unfortunately be known as Harry Potter for the rest of his acting career, that’s just how it goes in Hollywood. (See also Matthew “Ferris Bueller” Broderick and Mark “Luke Skywalker” Hamill). The problem is, now that Radcliffe is 19, he’s been branching out (ew, no pun intended) into raunchier roles and his fans aren’t happy. He was cast in 2007 in the London production of Equus in a part that required full-frontal nudity — with a horse that’s he’s sexually preoccupied with, no less. This September he will reprise the role on Broadway.
Radcliffe is annoyed that he has to defend the role, saying: “Offended mothers were calling in and saying I shouldn’t be doing this, that they weren’t going to see it. OK, don’t see it. They’re are treating it like it’s pornography and it’s not. It’s only seven minutes at the end of the play when I’m naked and I’m 19 now.” Maybe they’re just annoyed that when they see Radcliffe in the remaining three Potter films, their own filthy minds will only be able to concentrate on what’s beneath his invisibility cloak.
Despite not even winning the third season of American Idol, Jennifer Hudson has become one of the show’s most famous alumnus, winning both a Golden Globe and an Oscar for her work in Dreamgirls. Now she can add another honor to her resume — The Democratic National Convention. Barack Obama asked for Hudson specifically when it came time to choose a singer to deliver the National Anthem the night he accepts his party’s nomination for the presidency.
Hudson, a Chicago native, is a supporter of the Illinois senator, and will appear on Thursday night in front of a sold-out crowd of 75,000 in Colorado, not to mention the millions of viewers watching the convention at home. She won’t be the only celeb in attendance at the convention though, E! reports that Denver has been seeing it’s share of stars at the convention, including George Clooney, Ben Affleck, Charlize Theron and Obama’s #1 Super Fan, Oprah Winfrey.

Gossip Girl contains more sex, drinking and rehab than most high schoolers normally experience, which has been a cause for concern among parents and critics alike. The CW network decided to turn some of its harshest criticism into a cheeky, dark ad campaign that at first seems like a parody, until you realize all the quotes used in it are real. Skanky scenes of Serena or Blair are tagged with lines like “Mind-blowingly inappropriate! – Parents Television Council.”
But the show’s creator Josh Schwartz isn’t a fan of the ads. Though he’s responsible for the show’s content, he tells New York magazine: “The network came up with that, and I just stand back. I don’t want anything to do with it … It’s like, ‘What am I doing?’ It’s bad. It feels bad. It’s wrong. When you drive by a poster for your show and it says, ‘Every parent’s nightmare,’ you have mixed feelings.”
To be honest, we think every parent’s nightmare would have been The O.C. – if your kid was Mischa Barton, an alcoholic sometimes-lesbian whose mom screwed your high school boyfriend, and then you were killed in a fiery car wreck – that seems more nightmarish.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or blessed with good sense), you probably already know that there’s a new single called “Overdosin'” by reality TV’s Heidi Montag. It was released last Monday, and of course a video was sure to follow. Not content to roll around on a beach, lip-synching to her monotone-techno song stylings while Spencer Pratt holds the camera (ever see Best Week Ever‘s version of “Higher”?), Heidi actually employs some production value in her latest effort.
She takes a cue from Olivia Newton John in the video and gets decked out in her best Capezio and Danskin, although you can be sure Olivia never displayed so many dead-eyed crotch shots. What working out has to do with overdosin’ on love is anybody’s guess. Our theory is that the spandex is just a colorful distraction to cover up all the voice distortion.
According to news outlets, the video was supposed to debut at www.heidimontag.com at 1pm EST today — and it still isn’t up. As much as we wish we weren’t interested, we have to admit that we can’t wait to see this monstrosity in its entirety. [Photos: Pacific Coast News]
For two weeks, our attention was turned to the Water Cube and the Bird’s Nest to watch the best athletes in the world compete in the Olympics. Each night, it was a couple hours of swimming or volleyball and then off to bed we went. It never dawned on us though what the Olympians themselves do after hours. Turns out, they do each other.
This information comes courtesy of Matthew Syed, a one-time Olympian-turned-commentator who regales those of us unable to be at the games with tales of medal-worthy horndoggery among the athletes. Syed tells the New York Post:
“Olympic athletes have to display an unnatural – and, it has to be said, wholly unhealthy – level of self-discipline in the build-up to big competitions. How else is this going to manifest itself than with a volcanic release of pent-up hedonism?. . .[It was] a common sight to see recently knocked-out athletes gorging on Magnums and McDonald’s, swilling alcohol and, of course, shagging like crazy.”
Basically, it sounds a lot like college, but with a lower percentage of body fat and no hacky-sackers. The romance du jour is between Michael Phelps and Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice, who were spotted sucking face last week after apparently false rumors circulated that he was getting it on with swimmer Amanda Beard and/or model Lily Donaldson.
