rnrnWe’re not exactly what you’d call “hip” to the latest polling numbers coming out of our nation’s capital, but based on news that just came across the wire, we have reason to believe that Barack Obama might have some difficulty getting re-elected for a second term as President of the United States. According to People magazine, Obama’s popularity on Facebook has recently been usurped by none other than Lady Gaga! Everyone’s favorite pantsless middle finger wagger has over 11 millions fans on the popular social networking site, while the leader of the free world trails her lead by a million-plus fans. We have no idea whether or not Facebook popularity translates to the real world, but if it did, you could bet that a ticket of Lady Gaga and Betty White would clean house in the 2012 elections.

We were hoping to see yet another modelesque mugshot of the notorious Paris Hilton (with dilated eyes this time!) since she was arrested on alleged drug charges today after the World Cup game in South Africa, but the charges were dropped after her accompanying friend took the fall.
According to several South African media outlets including News24, “Paris Hilton was arrested in Port Elizabeth on Friday for possession of marijuana, two police officers said.”
Paris’ side of the story is quite different (how shocking). She took to her Twitter page to say, “Hey guys, there’s a lot of crazy rumors going around. Just want you all to know the truth. Everything is completely fine. I was not charged or arrested, cause I didn’t do anything. I was assisting the police with the investigation and answering their questions.”
Who to believe, the numerous, credible news outlets or the devious Paris Hilton saying “cause I didn’t do anything”? Sorry Paris, it was a difficult decision, but we’re going to have to go with the more valid sources.
First it was the “1 Night in Paris” night-vision sex tape scandal, then the jail sentence after a DUI and probation violation (see that lovely mugshot above), now getting arrested on foreign soil for toking a joint. Looks like grandfather Hilton won’t be having any regrets about cutting off her inheritance because he was embarrassed about her previous antics. Way to be slick, Paris.
The thought of Kate Gosselin singing “The Twelve Days of Christmas” makes us want to get run over by a reindeer. As if the Gosselin family shenanigans couldn’t get anymore irritatingly asinine, PopEater is reporting that Kate plus her eight-kid crew are in the works to release a holiday album.
A record executive told PopEater that Kate “sees herself as a modern day Maria from The Sound Of Music, except this time the family singers won’t be the Von Trap [sic] family, they would be the Gosselins.” We’re pretty sure Maria didn’t get Botox injections or frolic around a paparazzi-infested beach wearing a bikini, but thankfully the Gosselin kids are cute enough to overshadow their mom!
Her last performing gig on Dancing With the Stars was a total bust; could it be that the momster (like that?) has been secretly hiding the fact that she is a sensational singer? This is Kate Gosselin we’re talking about so expectations are not high. Even if she sounds like a screeching owl, maybe her brood of eight will help drown her out and sufficiently pay for more of mommy’s handbags.

Reality celeb Khloe Kardashian and NBA champion Lamar Odom are obviously not worried about any reality show curse ending their marriage! A source tells Gossip Cop that they’ve got a new E! reality show in the works, which will be about Khloe and Lamar trying to get pregnant, settling into their new Tarzana, California home and perhaps the most intense: Khloe being a stepmom to Lamar’s two kids.
While Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Kourtney And Khloe Take Miami have not disappointed the concern of a Kardashian reality show overdose is legitimate, but more legitimate of a worry is the reality show marriage curse! The marriages of Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro, Britney Spears and K-Fed (tell us you don’t remember Chaotic), and Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler all ended in divorce following their reality TV shows.
Khloe and Lamar: stop in the name of love!
Let’s see, Betty White is inspired by Sandra Bullock, as is Katherine Heigl, Kathy Griffin, Miley Cyrus, the cast of Jersey Shore, and of course TheFABlife staff, so it’s not a surprise that Elizabeth Edwards, the now ex-wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards, is also getting added to the list.
Unlike the others though, both Elizabeth and Sandy endured the recent devastation and public humiliation of discovering that their husbands were unfaithful, grimy schmucks. During a Today Show interview yesterday Elizabeth, who is battling stage four cancer, told host Matt Lauer how she relates to Sandra’s plea at the MTV Movie Awards for everything to “go back to normal.”
In her first TV interview since her husband of 33 years admitted his sickening antics, she comments about the “incredible” year Sandy has had, saying “yet, the stories you hear are not about all those great successes, but about the failure of her marriage. I thought, that’s not who she is. I don’t know her, but I assume she wants to reclaim who she is in the same way I want to reclaim who I am.”
Waving our Team Elizabeth flags, we think Elizabeth, Sandra and Elin Nordegren should form a gang called “The Tough Cookies.” Stick it to the men, ladies!
The eccentric and just plain weird phenomena that we pop culture folks know as Lady Gaga just got a little more paranormal after she admitted recently in a Rolling Stone interview that she experiences recurring, cult-like nightmares. The pop star explains the dreamsÃ‚Â as a “phantom” telling her to cut her wrists with a “crazy wrist-cutting device” in order to keep her family and a random blond girl strapped in ropes out of harms way. So much for showing up to school naked or having your teeth fall out. Those are dreams Katy Perry has, not our Gaga!
Trying to figure out the meaning of these creepy visions, Gaga asked her Indian spiritual adviser (everybody has one, right?) who urged her to incorporate the nightmare into a video. That certainly explains the “Alejandro” music video, doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t it?
With this said, does Lady Gaga need an exorcism? Where is Linda Blair when you need her?
A luxury hotel in Barbados is allegedly considering banning Rihanna for good after she ensued marijuana-mayhem this past week. Is it wrong that she suddenly sounds 420% cooler to us after hearing this?
According to rumors published by MediaTakeOut.com, RiRi went a little too heavy with the puff-puff-pass, which caused the hotel’s smoke alarms to go off non-stop. Rihanna and her ganja-happy accomplices allegedly trashed the place to the point that the hotel’s staff have had their hands busy cleaning up her hot box hotel room.
A blind item from an unnamed Barbadian newspaper article that MTO attached to their piece hinted that this wasn’t the first time the singer went on a partying rampage at this particular hotel. “Apparently, a few years ago, they had to send her a huge bill when she and her former boyfriend also wrecked the place.” Ha! This is just too easy to let go: Could it be that Chris Brown damaged something?! No way! [Photo: Splash News Online]
Cops were called this weekend after Kourtney Kardashian’s baby daddy Scott Disick got into an argument over a parking job with his neighbor. Hmmm. Maybe Kourtney’s outspoken little sis Khloe had a point when she called him a “douche lord.” Scott, as we know, is no stranger to trouble.
For one, his erratic shenanigans on the Kardashian sisters’ reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians are endless and quite Spencer Pratt-esque. Let’s not forget Kim Kardashian’s last birthday in Las Vegas when Scott was so plastered that he shoved dollar bills into a waiter’s mouth because the waiter had been instructed by Kris Jenner to cut him off. Might we add he also did this after he had belligerently accused Rob Kardashian’s friend of being a hooker.
Fast forward months later to just this past week when Scott admitted in an interview with Ryan Seacrest that yes, he does have anger problems and struggles with alcohol. Um, duh! But apparently he can’t refrain from fighting over silly things like parking jobs.
Maybe this time, love won’t be so blind for Kourtney. Rumors are circulating that she may have moved out of their house with baby Mason. If this is the case, Kourtney, we applaud you! (Do you hear the clapping?)
The irony to all of this is that Khloe was the one forced into attending an anger management class for slapping Scott the “douche lord.” Now who seems like the wiser — and calmer! — one?
After Justin Bieber revealed the qualities he looks for in a girl we started thinking, which Hollywood starlets fit the bill? Whether these celebs are technically off the dating market (who cares!) or just a tad older than him (well, more than a tad) they all have the potential to be Mrs. Bieber. We’re hoping whichever lucky lady eventually gets to wear the Bieber crown steers clear of the weird celebrity couple matching tattoo epidemic that is going around as well as any death threats from the Bieber-fevered fans.
A wise piece of advice for anyone when it comes to Ke$ha: don’t piss her off.
The “Tik Tok” and “Your Love is My Drug” singer admitted that she has no problem wrapping up the smelly presents her dogs leave behind as Christmas gifts for her enemies. Anticipating anything else from the ever-classy Ke$ha is both ridiculous and naïve, this is after all the same singer who sports a brown paper bag on her head when she goes to the airport. She’s also the one who carries a fake head to concerts with her. Obviously she’d get crafty with crap.
We’re guessing that this coming holiday season, Ke$ha’s former managers at DAS Communications Inc. – who are suing her for $14 million – may want to be extra careful when opening any wrapped presents because they may find themselves saying, “Oh sh*t!”
