Geez, what were these people on? We just reported Tila Tequila‘s ordeal at the Gathering of the Juggalos concert. She emerged cut up and bruised because the amped-up crowd got violent and started throwing things at her. But the violence wasn’t solely directed at poor little TT. It looks like the delinquents were ready to get nasty with just about anyone who came on stage.
Method Man also bore the brunt of their attack. TMZ reports that he was performing with Redman when he was hit smack on the face with what appeared to be “a full beer can,” and the result was an ugly gash that was bleeding profusely. Redman stood up for the the bulls**t and cussed out the crowd (quite rightly) and told his fellow rapper, “Your face is cut, go take care of that.”
But for some strange reason, Method Man chose to continue the set. Maybe in the spirit of ‘the show must go on’? Maybe it was adrenaline, or machismo? If so, it’s a lot more than that crowd deserved. Either way, the bleeding rapper commanded, ”Start the music we’re continuing the show, let’s f**k these motherf**kers up.” Right…we would have gone the medical attention route.

It’s been a bumpy year for Michael Douglas. It started off rough, with the trial of his son, Cameron Douglas, for dealing drugs. We’re sure he found some respite and joy in his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones getting knighted by the Queen (she is quite the dame). But now, unfortunately, bad news is back.
Douglas has cancer. It was discovered after a tumor was found in his throat and the 65-year-old Ã‚Â actor is currently preparing himself for eight weeks of chemo and radiation therapy. The good news is that he is expected to make a complete recovery and even commented, “I am very optimistic.”
We’re sending him heaps of good wishes and hope he’s healthy and back on his feet soon.
Oh, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. What would the Jersey Shore be like without you doin’ you? He ain’t no Situation, and he definitely ain’t no Snooki or J-Woww, even if his musculature is as impressive as Miss Jenni’s. But he did give the world his legacy: that supreme party elixir, Ron-Ron juice.
Now, too many hits of Ron-ron juice can be dangerous, maybe even for it’s bare-chested creator. Perhaps it’s so potent that it causes temporary amnesia, or even trippy delusional phases. ‘Cause why else would beefcake Ronnie forget the very existence of all those parking tickets he didn’t pay for? Maybe he thought they were bits of confetti? Or that the Jersey Shore is a Hail Mary-pass because the fist pump trumps pesky fines?
Well, here’s a nice bite on the ass from reality for the reality star. Ronnie was arrested for his unpaid tickets and was hauled to the precinct by two officers who didn’t probably didn’t care much for any attempts of “Do you know who I am?” Ronnie was a free (but probably very embarrassed) bird a while later “after satisfying the conditions of the warrants.” Thank God, because the Ron-Ron juice MUST not be compromised. *Fist pump*

Tila Tequila is probably used to extreme reactions. Her love of writhing on red carpets, her will she-won’t she Celebrity Rehab yo-yoing … exhibition streaking much? But nothing she’s ever done could have prepared her (or us), for what she was in for this weekend.
Tila was on stage at a the Gathering of the Juggalos concert in Illinois (you know, the “f*cking magnets, how do they work?” dudes) when the crowd apparently got dangerously out of hand, leaving her completely bruised and battered. She told TMZ about the incident stating, “ DUDES were throwing HUGE STONE ROCKS in my face, beer bottles that slit my eye open, almost burnt my hair on fire cuz they threw fire crackers on stage, and they even took the sh*t out of the port-0-potty and threw sh*t and piss at me when I was onstage.”
Is this true? Because it sounds totally unreal. No one deserves that sort of treatment, not even the most loathsome trainwreck in the world.
Tila aso said that even though she booked it to her trailer with her bodyguard and security team, it did nothing to deter the madness. The hecklers surrounded the trailer and tried to break in to get at her. Says Tila “… They almost got me so they finally reach the trailor, blood all over myself, cant stop bleeding, then all of a sudden, all 2 thousand people surround the trailor and busts the windows!!! Even the guys INSIDE with me were shaking! Their hands were shaking cuz they were so scared! So 3 guys inside the trailor had to grab a table and push it over the broken windows and grabbed all the chairs they could find so hold the people from outside back…”
Colt Cabana a wrestler who was part of the crowd says that Tila took off her top in a desperate attempt to deter the crowd. It didn’t work because they carried on throwing things at her. Tila actually had to use security members as a shield against the assault. As a result she has some gruesome cuts and bruises, but waited till she got back to L.A to get treated as she wanted to get the hell out of there. It doesn’t hurt that her return home also made for a killer photo op (see above). The police are currently trawling the internet for videos so they can ID culprits. Do you empathize with Tila? Let us know.

Beloved fictional bachelor Barney Stinson would weep at this news on How I Met Your Mother, and they would not be tears of joy. But for the star that plays him – the actor/magician/director of AWESOME Neil Patrick Harris, it’s legendary. Harris and his partner, David Burtka, are expecting twins via surrogate in October later this year. Obligatory new baby squeeeeeeee!
The couple, who have been together for approximately six years (which is like, a gazillion in Hollywood years) announced the news on the actor’s Twitter account. Harris happily tweeted, “So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall. We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled. Hoping the press can respect our privacy…”
Looks like there are going to be even more moms and dads on the How I Met Your Mother set. Alison Hannigan had a baby girl last year in March who is exotically named Satyana Denisof. Cobie Smulders had her baby girl, Shaelyn Cado Killam, in May 2009. And now, NPH is joining the crew with a double hit. So Jason Segel and Josh Radnor need to prepare themselves for tons of diaper duty n’ baby goo talk.
We think NPH is going to make an ah-ma-zing dad. Imagine how much fun bedtime story sessions are going to be in that house? Mazel Tov to the proud papas!

It’s been a rough week for Fantasia Barrino. She has been at the epicenter of a whirlwind of controversies. The allegations pitted against her are that she broke up the marriage of one Antwuan Cook, and that she recorded numerous sex tapes with him. Unfortunately the pressure may have proved too much for Fantasia, who was reported to be hospitalized for an overdose of sleeping aids and aspirin. The police report of the incident confirms it as a suicide attempt. TMZ has a harrowing 911 tape of the ordeal. The person (who is most likely her manager, Brian Dickens) on the tape asks for help as they moved the singer under a shower to keep her from losing consciousness.
Fortunately, Fantasia is now out of hospital and on the road to recovery. Her manager released a statement that quotes, “She has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans. She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration.”
We wish her the very best and know that she’ll pick herself right up.

It seems that Ed Westwick shutting out Jessica Szhor was akin to a fifth grader acting around a girl he likes. Being mean translates to “I like you.” Because the ex-couple seem quite on now, but their reunion was anything but PG-13.
The New York Post reports that the Gossip Girl stars were flown down to Chicago for a Belvedere Nights event and festival. E! Online confirms there were in Chicago because they were spotted at Lollapalooza.
They were supposed to turn up at both events (apparently, Ed was Vanessa’s plus one). “Supposed” being the operative word here, because the Bass and Vanessa decided to ignore their panicked reps and refused to leave their room. Publicists were banging down their doors but Banessa refused to acknowledge their existence and went on doing whatever it was that they were doing. Must’ve made them hungry too because their room service bill was over $800. *Nudge Nudge Wink Wink*
But with all the lovin’ comes a fair amount of hatin’. Especially from the event sponsors who had coughed up first class plane tickets and VIP festival passes for the pair. A source reveals, “Eventually this blew up into a big argument on Sunday, when the event boss phoned Jessica and said he was canceling their flights. She said ‘We don’t need to do this. We can pay our own way.’ They left that night, and Jessica paid for everything.”
That’s right, all the threats of canceled plane tickets didn’t bother the loved up pair, because they insist that they didn’t know they had to turn up at the event. They only surfaced to watch The Strokes and Edward Sharpe perform post the event. Uh, right. The company flew you first class to another city and paid for two hotel rooms so you could get it on. Because people are really that nice.

When Julia Roberts slipped on her little black dress for the Eat, Pray, Love premiere, little did she know that, in a bathroom a couple of miles away, an homage inspired by her was being prepared. Roberts had recently made a stand about Botox and face fillers saying any tweaking definitely wasn’t for her. She stated, “… I want my kids to know when I’m p***ed, when I’m happy, and when I’m confounded. Your face tells a story and it shouldn’t be a story about your drive to the doctor’s office.”
, victim to many a Botox controversy
, decided to put her best face forward a la
Julia. So post a nice long shower, wrapped in a towel and completely make-up free, the 45-year-old actress whipped out her camera. She ended up snapping a montage of shots of her face (contorted to bring out the wrinkles) and posted them up on her Facebook fan page
writing, “Out of the bath getting ready for bed. Thought about all those damn critics of my face. Love it or hate it, my face that is, no surgery, no implants, no matter what “they” say. Decided I’d shoot myself in to reveal some truths about “beauty” and hope it makes you all easier on yourself.” She also admitted to past Botox use, but clears up the air once and for all, that she she’s done and has been
done for a while now.
How does Julia Roberts tie into this? Teri explained, “I can be mad, or confused or sad and tired. Julia Roberts had that same vein in her forehead in Eat Pray Love. Proud of Julia for being a real woman on a real journey.” Nice…it’s like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Rants!
For some strange reason, Paris Hilton deems it fit to introduce some more stank, erm, fragrance to the unsuspecting public. She’s already got like, a gazillion scents out there with groundbreaking names like Paris, Heiress, Siren, Fairy Dust and Just Me. Somebody needs to tell Paris what Fairy Dust also means. It’s that white stuff that got her pal Lindsay Lohan into a whole lotta trouble. And after Paris’ pot shenanigans, she needs to walk a careful line (line…heehee).
Back to the point. Paris and her boobs dressed up as Marilyn Monroe to promote her latest scent, Tease. Because she wanted to hit you on the head with throwing in as much tease as possible. Paris is a tease. Marilyn is a tease. Perfume is a tease. You can’t run, you can’t hide.
What we want to know is A. does anybody care and B. does anybody even buy this stuff?
