Heidi Montag Makes Progress On Divorce, Flirts With Justin Bieber On Twitter


Oh Speidi. You really do keep us guessing, don’t you? Are they splitting? Or are Heidi and Spencer faking their split? We’re leaning towards the former now. Apparently Heidi Montag has picked Jodeane Farrell to handle her divorce and they’ve already taken steps to score the quickest divorce possible in California. And if reports that the finances have drained thanks to Spencer Pratt‘s energy crystals, she wouldn’t go spending chunks of moolah for a fake divorce? Would she?

Farrell is planning a meeting with Heidi and Spencer as both parties apparently want the divorce mediated. So far, things between them are “very amicable,” she commented.

But, uh, they might not stay that way very long. Wait till Spencer hears this. Montag now wants in on some Justin Bieber beach frolicking a la Kim Kardashian! She made her weird intentions known on Twitter, tweeting, “Now that I am getting divorced I think you and I should do a photo shoot together! Cutie ;)! I’m closer to your age.” Not only is that totally creepy… but did she just diss Kim K with the age card?

Drake’s Got The Hots For Snooki, But She Wants A Nice Guido From The Bronx


Drake took time out from whining about Rihanna to pursue none other than everybody’s favorite Jersey Shore superstar Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. Apparently he chatted her up backstage at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto and tried to entice her to his after-party. And, a witness says Drake was holding Snooki‘s hand the whole time.

Unfortunately his master plan failed as Snooki showed up later at his door only to be turned away by security.  “Drake found out about it a lot later and was really mad that Snooki didn’t get in,” said source. You just struck out, Drake.

Because now Snooki is planning to go guido-hunting in the Bronx after the Jersey Shore wraps. “I am still living with my mom at the moment, but I’m traveling so much I basically live in an airport,” she said. But once filming is over, I want to move to The Bronx, because there’s loads of Guidos there, and I might meet a nice one out walking the dog or something.” If guidos were horses… Snooki would ride!

Martina Navratilova Settles With Ex-Lover


Martina Navratilova has managed to do some damage control. The tennis legend has settled out of court with her ex-lover Toni Layton for an estimated $3 million.  They were involved in a massive legal battle where Layton threatened to reveal Navratilova’s secrets. That’s a lot of money… we’re guessing the secrets were of the juicy kind!

Layton left her husband Jeffrey Lambert, for Navratilova. The reason why she sued, was because she claimed that Navratilova had abruptly dumped her after eight years together. And to add insult to injury, she also changed the locks of their Florida home. They’ve been involved in a legal battle for two years now over assets including money, four homes, several cars, a boat, jewelry, a Florida animal sanctuary, art, pets and even a set of guns.

It’s not been the best time for 9-time Wimbledon champ. She was also diagnosed with breast cancer, which she announced two months ago.

John Lennon’s Scribbled Lyrics Worth $1 Million


John Lennon’s handwritten lyrics have sold for $1.2 million at an auction in New York, purchased by an American private collector over the phone. They were for the Beatles hit A Day in The Life which was the final track of the band’s 1967 album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

It’s a double-sided sheet of paper which starts with “I read the news today oh boy about a lucky man who made the grade.” This apparently refers to Guiness heir Tara Browne‘s car crash. Browne was a friend of Lennon’s and a society figure who crashed his Lotus Elan sports car in London and died in 1966, after failing to notice a red traffic light. Lennon later commented, “I didn’t copy the accident. Tara didn’t blow his mind out, but it was in my mind when I was writing that verse. The details of the accident in the song — not noticing traffic lights and a crowd forming at the scene — were similarly part of the fiction.”

The lyrics previously belonged to Beatles road manager Mal Evans. According to Sotheby’s, the document provides a “rare glimpse into the Beatles’ songwriting dynamic.” “A Day In The Life” was banned by the BBC when it was released because of the line “I’d love to turn you on” which supposedly encouraged drug use.

William And Harry Behave Like Idiots, All In The Name Of Soccer (Er, Football)


Looks like Prince Harry is dealing with his break-up with Chelsy Davy just fine. He and his brother Prince William helped boost the morale of the downcast English soccer team after they tied with Algeria during the World Cup.

They visited the locker room with David Beckham and William commented, “When the guys went into the changing room they were fairly upset with how they played, but by the time we finished, we’d laughed and joked.” How did they manage doing that? Well, they acted … stupid. William explained, “Harry and I behaved like idiots. We tried to get David in on the act as well, and the three of us tried to raise some spirits. That was all we did really.”

Princes and court jesters! That’s something! And just because… here’ a little something (hint: shirtles pics of World Cup players) to get you revved up about the World Cup!

Justin Bieber Wants A Cute Nerd For A Girlfriend


Ready with a pen, girls? Justin Bieber (photos) has revealed what he’s looking for in a potential Bieber girlfriend so take notes! He told Absolute Now, “She needs to have a nice personality, a good sense of humor, nice eyes and a brain. What’s the point of having a nice looking girlfriend if you can’t talk to her? You want to be able to sit down to dinner and be with someone who you can have a proper conversation with.” Very mature, Biebs.

He also prefers the natural look saying,”I don’t like girls who wear lots of make-up and you can’t see their face. Some girls are beautiful but insecure and look much better without the make-up, but decide to put loads on.”

And lastly he also admitted that he likes playing it super cool when he’s asking someone out on a date, “It depends on the situation. But at first I won’t let her know – you’ve got to pace yourself. Then, maybe by the end of the conversation, I’d ask her something like, ‘Do you have a phone number that I could reach you at?’ That’s usually how it goes.”

There you go – Bieb-code cracked! So Bieber-buddy Kim Kardashian totally fits the bill… right?

Cheryl Cole And Derek Hough Are Totally Doing It: Vacation Edition!

Dancing with the Stars star Derek Hough has whisked singer Cheryl Cole off on a luxury getaway. Apparently, they’re holed up in the Doubletree Oyster Bay resort on the Indian Ocean, in Tanzania.  It has its own private beach too! Cole became close to Hough after splitting with her millionaire footballer hubby Ashley Cole.

Sources say she couldn’t be happier, claiming, “She’s having a brilliant holiday. Cheryl is really impressed with Derek’s taste and is loving spending some time with him. They’ve been enjoying lots of days out and Derek makes her laugh. She is having the time of her life. Cheryl had no clue where Derek was taking her when he whisked off on her holiday.”

The chatty pal also added, “She was so excited when they landed in Tanzania because she loves Africa. She’s got really fond memories of the country after climbing Mount Kilimanjaro last year for charity. The hotel is situated one of the most beautiful places in the world. She told her mum he couldn’t have picked a better place.”

Hough supposedly has told his friends that he’s head over heels with the singer. Derek’s uncle, Aaron Nelson, said his nephew was planning a romantic secret trip two weeks ago, “He and his new lady are going off on a romantic holiday. It’s somewhere very nice and he doesn’t want the paparazzi following him. For Derek this is true love. He is in totally in love with this girl.” Awww, new love!

Amanda Bynes Retires From Acting


Amanda Bynes has quit acting at the ripe young age of 24.  The former actress announced the news on Twitter, tweeting in quick succession:

Being an actress isn’t as fun as it may seem.

If I don’t love something anymore, I stop doing it.

I don’t love acting anymore, so I’ve stopped doing it.

I know 24 is a young age to retire but you heard it here first I’ve #retired.

Kinda weird because just last week she tweeted that her idols are “Marilyn Monroe (RIP) and Angelina Jolie.” Bynes hasn’t been in a movie since Hairspray in 2007.  She added, “I’ve never written the movies & tv shows I’ve been a part of. I’ve only acted like the characters the producers or directors wanted me to play.”

So is that a hint that she’s going to start… scriptwriting? Directing? Something besides tweeting? [Photo: Getty Images]

Vanessa Carlton Announces She’s Bisexual While Public Asks, “Who’s Vanessa Carlton?”


Looks like Anna Paquin‘s PSA has opened some doors, because now, singer Vanessa Carlton has also come out as bisexual. While Paquin’s fiance, True Blood’s Stephen Moyer has spoken and stood up for his Sookie, Carlton’s romantic history hasn’t really been reported. She apparently dated John Mayer back in 2002 but Mayer’s various girlfriends tend to be a blur to us. There’s only so much sexual napalm we can stand.

Carlton headlined  Nashville Pride, which attracted 18,000 plus visitors, and announced, ” I am a proud bisexual woman.” Nicely done!

Prince Harry Back On the Market?


Britain’s Prince Harry and his girlfriend Chelsy Davy have called it quits. This comes after splitting last year and then reuniting to give it yet another shot. They’ve been dating on-and-off for the last six years, but the 24-year-old Davy is now moving to South Africa to begin a legal career, after having told him they were through. The Zimbabwean heiress apparently told friends, “We’re finished. This is a new beginning for me. I want to start my career in South Africa where I plan to spend the rest of my life. I don’t want to live in Britain.”

They’ve also not been together in public ever since HRH Harry got his helicopter pilot wings in May. A source revealed, “It was a gradual end to the relationship. It whimpered out. It’s not practical with Harry’s commitments to the Army and his family to be in a relationship with someone in a different country. It was an obvious time for a clean break. The spark is gone and she’s focused on moving back to be where her heart lies. She was distraught when they split last year but it’s different now. She knows she did everything to make it work.”

Chelsy was supposed to begin as a trainee solicitor at the London law firm Allen & Overy in September, but those plans are off. The source also added, “They are still friends and will always have a special place for each other.”
