Jenny McCarthy Is Looking For Love Online, Just Like The Rest Of Us

If you’re scanning through an online dating site and you see a pic of a woman who looks suspiciously like Jenny McCarthy, hit her up because it might not be a fake! Yes, the former Playboy model and television host admits to using the Match.com website to help her search for Mr. Right. Jenny had been dating Jason Toohey following her breakup with longtime BF Jim Carrey, but things have recently soured with the new man and Jenny finds herself back on the hunt! The 39 year old bombshell does indeed have a public profile, but she obviously uses a fake name and declined to put much personal data. So the general rule of thumb is that Jenny McCarthy will contact you, and not the other way around.

So now for the burning question: What kind of man does Jenny want? “Just a nice guy, you know?” she told HollywoodScoop.com. And it helps if you’re not from LA. “There’s no real guy guys [in LA], so maybe importing from somewhere will be smart. Anyone not from LA I think.” Cue the mass exodus of dudes from Hollywood. Jenny joins the ranks of other celebs who’ve tried online dating, including Jennifer Aniston, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan and even Halle Berry!

Rihanna Is Sad That She Doesn’t Get Any Booty Calls

Even though she’s officially been named the Sexiest Woman Alive, Rihanna still deals with the ups and downs of dating just like the rest of us. The singer recently stopped by Ellen, where she donned a snuggie and discussed her (strong) feelings on the single life. “It sucks!” she says. “I’m not dating at all. It’s kind of whack.” She fears that her prestigious title, fame and consistent lack of pants might scare off any potential suitors. “I would say at times it can be intimidating, but then it’s no good,” she explained. “I can’t have guys that are intimidated by me.”

So what does the Barbadian beauty look for in a man? “I like men that are more aggressive,” she revealed. “I like them to be sure of themselves and know that you’re the man. I’m the lady and the only way for us to make this work is for us to play our role. … I can’t be the man for you.” You’d think that dudes would be lining up to be Riri’s man, but sadly her career makes looking for love extremely difficult.

“I do put a lot into my job; most of my time if not all of it. … It definitely affects my personal life,” she said. And she feels it, both in her heart and in, err, another place too. “My personal life is pretty much non-existent, which is not good, not for the long run. Not for me, not for ‘her,’” she says, pointing to her crotch. “It’s not fun. That’s why I stay on Twitter a lot, so I can [chat] with my fans. Because I don’t get any booty calls.” Are “booty tweets” a thing yet? At least she channeled her sexual frustration into making her new record Talk That Talk one of the naughtiest albums in pop history!

But Rihanna doesn’t let her relationship woes get her down. After talking with Ellen she wheeled on over to the X Factor stage and tore into a killer version of her latest hit single, ‘We Found Love’. Check out the vid under the jump!

Justin Bieber And Jaden Smith Seduce YouTube With “Thinking Of You” Cover

Taking a break from all of the paternity battle madness, Justin Bieber made some time to hang out with his buddy Jaden Smith recently. It must have been a pretty productive chill sesh, because the two friends recorded their own version of Frank Ocean’s “Thinking Of You” and posted it to their shared Youtube channel. “I hope you like it,” Jaden tweeted this morning as he posted the link. While we definitely do like it, there’s something unsettling about an earbud full of teenage slowjam swag first thing in the morning. But damn, their track could seriously challenge Drake’s Take Care album as the smoothest release of the week. Give it a listen!

Selena Gomez’s Week Gets Worse As Judge Throws Out Her Stalker Case

Poor Selena Gomez can’t catch a break these days. First she has to deal with the increasingly ugly off-and-on paternity suit against her boyfriend Justin Bieber. Plus her new puppy Baylor is recovering from a bad case of ODing on rocks. And if this all wasn’t rough enough, a California  judge just dismissed the case against her super-scary stalker.

Illinois native Thomas Brodnicki was accused of stalking the Disney star between July and October of this year. The 46-year-old told his therapist that he is obsessed with meeting Selena, and claims to have had conversations with God about killing her. Despite this damning evidence, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Edmund Clarke Jr. ruled yesterday that the stalker “lacked specific intent” to cause the actress anxiety or fear and has thrown the case out. Err…isn’t stalking still stalking, regardless of intent? We’re not lawyers, but this seems to set an interesting new legal precedent we’ll call “It’s OK To Do Whatever The Hell You Want, As Long As You Didn’t Mean To Upset Anybody.”

So where do you go when your stalker is freed, your dog is sick, and your boyfriend is being publicly accused of knocking up some rando? Into the loving  and self-deprecating arms of Ellen DeGeneres, of course! Selena swung by the talk show host yesterday and opened up about her troubles. “It’s not easy,” she admitted when asked about Justin’s paternity woes. But she got some relief that the suit seemed extremely flimsy, and the general view is that it’s all lies. “It’s good to just kind of be good,” she said. We’re glad she’s finding some equilibrium in this situation.

Will Channing Tatum Replace George Clooney In The Man From U.N.C.L.E.?

Steven Soderbergh’s big screen adaptation of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is missing its star now that George Clooney has bowed out due to health concerns. Fresh out of surgery, George isn’t sure he’s up for all the fancy footwork the film will entail, so now a whole host have young hunky actors are being considered for the lead role in the film of the television classic. Perhaps the most serious contender is Channing Tatum, who acted in Soderbergh’s latest film, Magic Mike. Although no formal offer has been made, Steven is very interested and could pull the trigger any day, according to a report in Deadline. Other actors up for consideration include Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ryan Gosling, Joel Edgerton and Alexander Skarsgard. Who do you think should star? Let us know in the poll below!

Michael Buble Joins The List Of People Not Keeping Up With The Kardashians

When Saturday Night Live parodied Kim Kardashian’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it wedding last week, we bet she wasn’t too upset. Because let’s face it, that’s just what SNL does. But when middle-of-the-road crooner Michael Buble turns on you, that’s when you know you’ve got a major PR issue. The velvet voiced singer took a shot at Kim during his set at the iHeartRadio Live concert in Tribeca last night in between selections from his latest album, Christmas. In fact, he even dropped an f-bomb and  *gasp* a b-bomb! Where’s the holiday cheer, Mike?

“Ladies and gentleman, I have a very special guest,” Buble said from the stage of the P.C. Richard & Son Theater. “Please welcome Kim Kardashian!” The audience was reportedly shocked and confused, until Buble started to laugh. “Nah, just f–king with you! That b-tch isn’t coming on my stage.” Goodness, Harry Connick Jr. would never use that kind of language! This is just the latest example of a Kardashian backlash following accusations that her marriage was simply a lucrative publicity stunt. Head to the gallery below for more famous faces who aren’t keeping up with the Kardashians these days.

Nick Cannon Pretends To Lose Dog By Tying It To Balloons, PETA Gets Pissed

Nick Cannon should really learn to lay off the pranks. Last spring he gave out his home phone number while broadcasting his 92.3 radio show, leading to fans calling his then-pregnant wife Mariah Carey at all hours. And yesterday Nick pissed people off with  his “funny” steez again, by pretending to lose his co-host’s tiny dog after tying it to 50 helium-filled balloons! While allegedly doing an on-air experiment to see how many balloons it would take to lift DJ Sarah Lee’s Pomeranian, Nick pretended that the stunt went horribly wrong and that the animal was floating away. He posted a spoof video of the event on the station’s website, and even made “lost” posters, which claimed that the dog was seen floating over the Hudson towards New Jersey. However, he soon revealed that it was just a dummy flying high in the skies, and that the real pooch was safe and sound.

Although he meant it in good fun, Nick’s canine tribute to the movie Up has animal rights groups up in arms, fearing that a copycat prankster could attempt to do this for real. “If bad taste were a crime, we’d be going to jail with Nick,” says a spokesperson for activist group PETA. “But joking about killing a dog, a kid, an old person — anyone — isn’t cool when there’s always the danger that some numbskull will do it for real.” After getting death threats, Nick remains defiant on the matter. “Even if someone was dumb enough to try the balloon stunt scientifically it wouldn’t work,” he said on his twitter. “Mathematically 50 balloons could never carry a dog into the air.” He better be careful, or else PETA might do an experiment to see how many balloons it takes to make him float away.
