You’d expect a bit of drama onstage at an Elton John performance at a gala in Monte Carlo, but would you expect to see a Jersey Shore-style brawl in the audience? Apparently, a French-speaking woman in her 30’s and another in her 70’s showed attendees exactly what a beat down among rich Europeans looks like. And while one description of the fight seems similar to what you’d expect at the Shore (“When Younger Blonde turned around, 70 grabbed her hair and pulled out a gigantic blonde weave.”), it’s clear that girl fights play out very differently on the French riviera.
The unidentified ladies, for one, weren’t sporting shorty-shorts and baby T-shirts. They were wearing ball gowns and dripping in diamonds. And when the requisite drinks were thrown — it was glasses of champagne, not beer out of plastic cups. But the biggest difference between Jersey Shore and Monte Carlo cat fights is probably summed up by a witness who said, “the two ladies slapped and kicked each other while still seated until security came.” So drinks, punches and kicks were thrown — and yet the women remained seated while beating each other down so as not to disrupt Sir Elton belting out “Tiny Dancer” at the piano? It’s Lifestyles of the Bitch and Famous! [Source: New York Post; Photo: Getty Images]
We kinda knew that Celebrity Rehab 4 was going to be a party…for us. And wooohoooo, it hasn’t disappointed! When the cast was revealed, Rachel Uchitel was on the roster revealing a surprise addiction to Ambien (and erm, lying). That’s when we thought to ourselves… the dramz coming.
But in a move that made our day, it turns out that Yuckitel was made to room with the ebullient Janice Dickinson. Picture this: Egos. Vanity. Issues. Illusions of grandeur. All in one room together. How could it not explode? And when it did … and oh, the two ladies went for it… it got so major that staffers had to pry Dickinson and Uchitel Ã‚Â away from from each other. A source revealed that the two ladies “were practically at each other’s throats from the beginning. They fought constantly, andÃ‚Â Dr. Drew and the staff ultimately made the decision to separate the two as they were just being so disruptive to everyone involved. It was just way too much ego in one room.Ã¢â‚¬Â You think?
Oh joy! And a lot more snarkiness has surfaced. The source went on to say, “Rachel just couldn’t stand even being in the same vicinity as Janice, and the tension that Rachel was dealing with because of it was one of the reasons that she left.” And Ms J was happy to dole out her judgement too because, and we agree on one level, “… It drove Janice over the edge that Rachel thought she was a celebrity. Both of these women are dealing with major self esteem issues, along with their personal addictions.” Well… Janice had/kinda still has a legitimate career. The fame whoring was a natural extension, to be fair.
All we can say is… where are the tapes? Please God, let there be a video of this!

Now that Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt‘s divorce is final, the body-formally-known-as Heidi has realized she has a big Pratt-shaped hole in her life. Ã‚Â And she’s left reminiscing how her ex loved fame more than he loved her.
So what does she have left? She’s alienated her family (calling the cops on your Mom will do that). No friends either. Lauren Conrad and Heidi, once BFF, are no more. Even ex sister-in-law Stephanie Pratt doesn’t speak to her. So poor Heidi now has all that extra boob and no one to appreciate it.
In a move that reeks of desperation, she’s resorted to reaching out to her old Hills co-stars LC and Audrina Patridge in an attempt to erase all the Spencer years. She tweeted, “watching old hills i miss you @AudrinaPatridgeÃ‚Â and most of all @laurenconrad.”
Don’t hold your breath, Heidi-hon.
Someone needs to tell Jessica Simpson to stop thinking with her hormones. Her new boyfriend, ex-NFL player, Eric Johnson is obviously giving her lots of lovin’ (heehee, he used to play tight-end). This picture and message tweeted by J.Simp is evidence of that. She gushed, “Romance 101..getting kissed by my Yalie…me not lookin’ so smart…:) but YUM!”
Eric is apparently a secret nerd, but he’s dropped the idea of going to Wharton for the MBA program (yeah,Wharton) so he can spend more time with his lady love. A source says, “There were a lot of factors that went into his decision. Jessica supports him in whatever he wants to do. He has a lot going on.” Oh come on…it was totally her! She’s so not going to let him get away and you know it. They can’t take sexy time off in Italy if he’s plugging for a mid-term. Jessica Simpson ALWAYS wins (unless pitted against John Mayer, natch).

Robbie Williams is getting married today, shattering our teenage dreams. We’re currently going through a memory montage of past hormonal upsurges of him writhing on stage along with the other four members of Take That. Sigh.
We’ll also admit how remiss we’ve been because quite frankly, we didn’t even know he was dating anybody (they’ve been together for FOUR years)? Probably because he was supposed to date this very heartbroken blogger. But it’s true, he’s getting hitched today to an actress called Ayda Field on the Santa Calina island off the coast of California. None of the other members of Take That are coming because the couple only broke the news last week, leaving it too late for them to cancel the family vacations they’d planned.
This is not a hoax either. The singer has already proposed once on a live Aussie radio show, but later said he was just messing around. Considering the island is prepped and ready for the nuptials today, all systems are go. Here’s what Robbie thinks of his bride. In one of the strangest (and cutest) quotes we’ve ever heard, he commented, “I call her my Swiss Army knife because that’s the way I feel about her – she can do anything.”

A little something called “a copyright” is coming to bite Katy Perry on the butt. She’s been surfing the money wave thanks to her hit song “California Gurls.” The problem is that her collaborator, Ã‚Â Snoop Dogg, raps the lineÃ‚Â “I wish they all could be California Girls” right in the end. That’s The Beach Boys right there, from their cult tune “California Girls,”Ã‚Â and no one asked their permission to use the classic refrain. The iconic rockers are preparing to sue (of course. Poor Katy, she had fun fun fun until the Beach Boys took her money away.
Both Brian Wilson and Mike Love‘s reps are talking but are being smart by pinning it on the record company, Rondor Music. Wilson’s spokesperson explained, “Rondor owns the track and called Brian and Mike, saying they were going to complain. Brian likes Katy’s record and doesn’t know where the situation stands.” Ã‚Â Love’s rep echos the statement adding, “Mike and Brian wrote the song . . . but any legal action is up to Rondor.” Nice….cover all your bases!
Daniel Radcliffe‘s mystery lady is a mystery no more. We were miffed that Harry was hanging out with people other than us, and were wondering who his latest “friend” is. She’s 19-year-old Olivia Uniacke and she and DanRad have history!
Turns outÃ‚Â her real dad, Robert Uniacke is a total society man, who happens to be dating actressÃ‚Â Rosamund Pike.Ã‚Â Her step-dad David Heyman is like this gazillionaire in London. And he’s the producer for the Harry Potter franchise, so those two have known each other for years now. Apparently there was a spark initially too but as a source explained, “They were close a few years ago but the relationship fizzled out.” Oh well, things are always different a second time around.
Olivia is quite the heiress and party girl, as the chatty source revealed, “Oliva is renowned for holding some of the best house parties, really great bashes. She can be quite wild. She loves to drink champagne, particularly Moet, and she chain-smokes Camel cigarettes. She also loves to go nightclubbing.” Ã‚Â Hah. Now we know everything! Good match, or not? Sound off!
We remember how baffled we were when Angelina Jolie said that her four-year-old daughter Shiloh has “Montenegro style.” What she was trying to say is that her little girl likes to act like a little guy and dresses like one too. In the Jolie-Pitt household, it seems kids are allowed to express themselves quite freely. Cue Maddox‘s mohawk.
Angelina recently took Pax, Zahara and Shiloh to a kids store in California (cool fact: they were escorted by police cars). In keeping with Shiloh’s “little dude” style, she was rocking a baseball cap on backwards. Her siblings picks in the store were diametrically different from hers, though. A source said, “Pax found a ‘Magnificent Manicure Kit’ that he brought over to show Zahara. It looked like they both wanted it and they showed it to Angelina.”
They double teamed their Mom who relented and bought the kit for them. It apparently lets children make their own lotion and mud bath. We can already see Shiloh’s disapproval!

When Wyclef Jean announced that he wanted to run for President of his native country Haiti, the news was generally met with a big WTF? Ã‚Â But in all fairness, don’t you think the artist should be allowed to explain exactly why he made his decision? It’s not like a crossover between the entertainment and political spheres have never happened. And why exactly are we pulling someone down for actually trying to do some good?
When asked by People, Wyclef explained, “The suffering of the people of Haiti, the youth of Haiti Ã¢â‚¬â€œ which is the majority of the population Ã¢â‚¬â€œ can’t take another five years of the corruption that’s been going on for the past 200 years. This is why I’m running.” Again, note that he’s been putting his money where his mouth is considering he founded and has been running his charity Yele Haiti for the last 5 years.
Folks wondering whether he’s thought his decision through would be surprised to know he has a game plan ready adding, “[My platform] has four pillars: education, job creation, instilling security into the culture, and, how do we get our agriculture back?”
Wyclef also commented that he knows how much scrutiny he’s going to be under (looks like he was right), and that a majority of the reaction to his candidacy will be met with disdain especially about his qualifications. He refutes, “Politics is a combat sport, so I expect nothing less than to be attacked everyday.Ã‚Â Automatically, when people first see me theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to say, Ã¢â‚¬ËœIsnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t that the guy from the Fugees?’ But I’m hoping that next they’ll say, ‘Okay. He knows what heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s talking about.”
He also has a Haitian passport, has lived there for five consecutive years and owns property there, so he is legitimate in his bid. The majority seem to be on his side. A poll on People asking whether he’d make a good president has an overwhelmingly positive response so far.
Last month, at the Wireless Festival in London, a very different Lily Allen revealed herself onstage. Ã‚Â We’re normally used to seeing her smoking like a chimney, or going to job interviews smashed. So a very sober, non-smoking Lily was quite a treat. The reason for the about turn was that she wanted to focus on having kids, and settling down with her boyfriend Sam Cooper telling concert goers, “I appreciate that you were jumping up and down because this is probably my last gig in London for some time.”
She also dedicated her tuneÃ‚Â Who’d Have Known to him saying, “… This one’s for u baby!” It turned out to be quite a prophetic statement because the singer has revealed that she’s pregnant! Ask and thou shalt receive, eh? Congratulations! This is especially good news for Lily because she pregnant once before with then boyfriend Ed Simons of The Chemical Brothers, but sadly miscarried after 18 weeks.
