Celebrity Fight Night Is The Epitome Of Class, Style, And Buttafuoco Blood

Ladies and gentlemen, you have just died and gone to D-List heaven. Which is more commonly known as plain old “hell”. But today we’ll call it Celebrity Fight Night, a truly surreal spectacle that even Satan himself couldn’t have conceived. Yet where else can you watch celebs you wanna pummel into submission pummel each other in to submission? Your dreams come true, and you don’t even have to get your hands dirty! It’s a beautiful thing.

All of your favorites are here, including tabloid classics like Kato Kaelin, Joey Buttafuoco and Amy Fischer. The current attention-whore of the moment is soon-to-be single (hear that ladies?) Tareq Salahi, whose dog burial photo-op puts him in the running for Worst Human Ever. He’s set to duke it out with former ball player and steroid enthusiast, Jose Canseco. There’s even Michael Lohan and Nadya “Octomom” Suleman, whose combined parental skills would create the largest and most dysfunctional family this world has ever known. And the whole thing will be overseen by none-other than Kevin Federline, who will act as honorary ref. Some of the fighters threw fake punches for photo ops, but things got real when Amy Fischer’s husband Lou Ballera socked Joey Buttafuoco in the mouth for real! Check out more of the insanity in the gallery below.

L-Word Star Booted From Southwest Flight For Kissing Her Girlfriend

Southwest is definitely not the friendly skies! At least if you ask Leisha Hailey. The L-Word actress claims that she and her girlfriend were removed from a Southwest flight yesterday because they were kissing, and now she is leveling homophobia accusations against the airline. “I have been discriminated against by @SouthwestAir,” she tweeted. “Flt. attendant said that it was a ‘family’ airline and kissing was not ok.” Now Leisha’s demanding a public apology and a refund. “Since when is showing affection towards someone you love illegal?” she wrote. She’s calling on fellow members of the LGBT community to boycott Southwest Air, stating that “they don’t like us.”

Reps for Southwest are doing their part to calm the turbulence, posting a statement last night saying that they “received several passenger complaints characterizing the behavior as excessive.” The report continues to say that when attendant went over to ask Leisha to tone it down, she allegedly became hostile. “The conversation escalated to a level that was better resolved on the ground, as opposed to in flight,” they explained. Southwest seems to rub many celebs the wrong way. Kevin Smith was furious for being escorted off a flight last year for allegedly being too big to fit in the seat, and last week Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong was kicked off because his pants sagged too low.  Really, Southwest? They should really change their name to Air Grandma.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Is Handsomeness On A Stick At 50/50 Premiere

Damn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. We knew you back when you were just the kid from Angels In The Outfield, and we weren’t impressed with you or your doubled-barreled last name. Then you morphed into that awkward teen on Third Rock From The Sun, and we laughed at your pony tail. More recently you shifted into geeky girl-getter in 500 Days Of Summer, and we hated you for reminding us of every failed romance we’ve ever had. But now at New York’s 50/50 premiere last night, you’ve somehow entered into the Don Draper Den of Ridiculously Handsome Dudes. We never saw it coming. Well done, sir. Although co-stars Seth Rogen and Anna Kendrick didn’t look too bad themselves. Check out more in the gallery below!

The iHeartRadio Festival Boasted The Greatest Lineup Of All Time, End Of Story

Get lost Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Woodstock: there’s a new epic concert in town! It would probably be easier to name who WASN’T at the iHeartRadio music festival this weekend in Las Vegas than try to tackle the luminous lineup. It’s seems like every big name in entertainment showed their face at the MGM Hotel to groove to the sounds of bands new and old. Lady Gaga ruled supreme (of course) with a hot show including special guest Sting. But the highlight of her set was the emotional tribute to Jamey Rodemeyer, the 14-year-old Gaga fan who committed suicide last Sunday after being tormented by bullies for his homosexuality. Have a tissue ready.

Some of the bigger acts also included Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Jay-Z, Carrie Underwood, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, and we haven’t even scratched the surface. Even the Black Eyed Peas took a hiatus from their hiatus to perform! Check out the gallery below to see which of your favorites tore up the stage and lit up the red carpet!

Are Taylor Lautner and Lily Collins Dunzo? Is Taylor’s Career Dunzo?

Look out Team Jacob, because your favorite werewolf might be single once again. Although rumored to be dating his Abduction co-star Lily Collins since last fall, the two have apparently called it quits. “It was a clean break that Taylor initiated,” an insider told Us Weekly. “At the Abduction party, it was awkward. They barely said a word to one another.”

Although some reports claim that the break happened a week before their film’s September 15th premiere, one source claims that the two made it to Splitsville long before that. Collins had to film Brothers’ Grimm: Snow White  in Canada earlier this year, and it sounds like the couple couldn’t take the strain. “[Taylor] wasn’t into it, and she made all the effort,” a source told E! News. “He wouldn’t even visit her.” Poor Lily! But the source says that she’s now playing the field and dating other dudes under the radar, so at least she lived happily ever after.

It’s been a rough week for Tay-Lauts, as he took a savage public flogging at the hands of New York Times critic Stephen Holden for his Abduction acting job:

Nicole Richie, Ashlee Simpson and Sam Ronson Have A Bikini Party In Mexico

It looks like Nicole Richie had herself a late birthday party, and this one was bikini themed! The socialite spent this weekend south of the border in Los Cabos, Mexico, where some famous friends joined her poolside. Ashlee Simpson showed up in a tiny-weeny black polka-dot bikini (had to), while Sam Ronson went with a more pink and blue tie-dye style. Ashlee’s sister Jessica Simpson also attended, but she apparently didn’t get the memo and forgot her two-piece. *Sigh* We’ll let it slide this time, Jessica. But do it again and you’re off the guest list. Check out more in the gallery below!

Justin Bieber Rents Arena To Watch Titanic With Selena Gomez

Although only seventeen, Justin Bieber has just raised the bar for date nights, and revolutionized the concept of “dinner and a movie” forever. The teen singer rented out all of L.A.’s Staples Center on Friday night to watch Titanic with his lady love, Selena Gomez. Somewhere, James Cameron is shedding a single tear. Friends of the Biebs told TMZ that he got the idea after watching Mr. Deeds, in which Adam Sandler has a surprise date with Winona Ryder at an empty Madison Square Garden. But while Sandler only plays a romantic millionaire in the movie, Bieber is the real deal and brought the fantasy to life…with a few touches of his own thrown in.

The couple began their evening by attending a Demi Lovato concert at the nearby Nokia Theater. Once the show ended, Justin reportedly told Selena to follow him through the underground tunnel that connects the theater to the massive Staples Center. They arrived to find themselves alone in the 20,000 seat arena, with the lights dimmed and  a candle-lit table for two set on the court. The love birds were served a dinner of steak and pasta catered by the venue’s exclusive Lexus Club, and when they finished eating Titanic started playing on the Jumbotron.

You hear that? That’s the sound of a million girls swooning, and a million guys screaming in frustration. The best part is that Justin didn’t even have to pay to use the arena. That’s what happens when your concerts fill the place three times in a row. We’ve gotta hand it to the kid, he’s got game. Leo may be king of the world, but Biebs is king of the date nights. Well played.

Vanessa Hudgens Likes Short Shorts, Big Boots

Some boots are made for walkin’, but these boots are made for pumpin’ gas! Vanessa Hudgens caused a scene at an LA service station yesterday when she showed up wearing sexy short-shorts and thigh-high badass buckled boots. Why the extra sassy attire? Maybe she’s about to head over to new beau Austin Butler‘s place. The two have been spotted canoodling over milkshakes, like the two Disney stars they are at heart. Careful V-Hudge,  milkshake-sharing may lead to harder stuff…like cotton candy-sharing, or even bowling dates. That’s how people get pregnant, Vanessa! Check out more in the gallery below short short, big boot hotness in the gallery below!

Paul McCartney’s Ballet Premiere Draws A Star Studded Crowd

Here at The FAB Life, they don’t come much bigger than one of the original fabs, Paul McCartney! The legend added a new notch to his musical resume last night with the New York City premiere of his ballet composition, Ocean’s Kingdom. It was certainly a family affair, as Paul was joined in Lincoln Center by his fashionista daughter Stella, musician son James, and rumored fiancee Nancy Shevell. But even more stars turned out by the galaxy-load to watch the unveiling of the work for themselves. Sarah Jessica Parker turned up in what appeared to be a lace tablecloth, while the lovely Liv Tyler shown in a see-through black gown. A very trim Alec Baldwin kept things classy in a tux, while Jon Bon Jovi and Little Stevie Van Zandt kept the rock ‘n’ roll flag flying high.  And Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees made an appearance to up the WTF factor. He’s had an opening in his calender since 1969.

On the way to the theater, the-still-pretty-cute Beatle admitted to feeling “quietly confident and nervous” about how his work would go down with the crowd of famous faces. “I’d seen the great traditional ballets like Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, but I had a very limited knowledge of ballet,” he told the Press Association. “Since this project I’ve obviously started to take notice.” But don’t except him to pirouette for us anytime soon. “I went to see Giselle recently in London and was bowled over by the sheer athleticism of the dancers,” he said. “The next day I tried to do one of the steps and failed dismally.” Although our idolization of him is so intense, we’d gladly pay big bucks for a show called Paul McCartney Fails At Dancing For Two Hours. Plus it would remind us of our prom. Check out more from last night in the gallery below!
