Coco Wraps It Up In Skin-Tight Bondage Tape Dress

We never want to come across like we’re saying anything bad about Coco, because it would risk pissing off her husband, Ice-T. And that would be like punching a hornet’s nest. So that being said, we’d like to say that Lady Coco is the very picture of class and elegance in this dress that appears to be constructed of black bondage tape. Goodbye H&M, hello S&M! We love the way the latex hugs her not-at-all-fake-in-any-way-seriously-guys-we-mean-it curves. She wore the sexy couture on the red carpet at the Vanity nightclub in Las Vegas, where she and Ice were hosting a party over the weekend. Ice-T probably wore something too (we guess), yet because he was standing next to Coco our brains didn’t register it. But we’re sure he looked very nice too! (We’re cool, right Ice?)

Kate Winslet’s Kids Love It When She Projectile Vomits

Roman Polanski’s new film Carnage hasn’t hit theaters yet, but star Kate Winslet’s kids already have their favorite moment picked out. It’s the scene when their Oscar-winning mother projectile vomits cobbler all over antique art books. What’s not to love!? And luckily enough, they were even on set to witness the glorious moment in person! “My kids came to work for the vomit day,” she told a press conference yesterday at the Venice Film Festival, where the film had its world premiere.  “And I am so thrilled that they were there because they literally have not stopped talking about it since. It was hysterical.”

The film is based on the satirical play by Yasmina Reza, The God of Carnage,  and packs an all-star cast of Winslet, Christoph Waltz, Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly. But most importantly, it features Winslet projectile vomiting with enough ferocity to put that scene in The Exorcist to shame. Thank god she didn’t perform method-style, but instead used a device strapped to her body. At least she does her own stunts. And she had an A-list cleanup crew.  “While Kate was the one who threw up, Jodie and I had to clean up the vomit,” says costar Reilly. “So we had the more disgusting involvement with the vomit.”

Audrina Patridge Leaves Her Show, Reality TV, And Reality In General

Audrina Patrdige is so over reality TV, you guys. In fact, the former Hill‘s star claims that she won’t be returning for another season of her spinoff show, Audrina. The series started strong, but has since been lagging in ratings since premiering on VH1 in the spring. Perhaps the low viewer turnout left a bad taste in her mouth. “We finished in April and I kind of decided I wanted to take some time off from reality,” she told The Daily. “I want to do something like acting or hosting,”  And to spend more quality time with my bikini she no doubt thought.

Speaking of her famous beach bod, Audrina also addressed the rumors that she’s taken a cue from another (in)famous Hills alum and gone under the surgeon’s knife. “They always ask me about that because of Heidi [Montag]. There’s all these rumors and they all say I’ve had, like, six procedures, and I’m, like, ‘Where do you get that?’ Look at the pictures. I fluctuate in weight a lot.” She denied having any work done on her face, but got prickly when the topic of certain “enhancements” came up. “Well, see I have this chest problem,” she says. “My bone right here, it’s higher on this side? It’s pectoralis something, so I’ve always struggled with that. You could see they look different sizes all the time.” And there you have it: Audrina has mood boobs. Not implants. Mystery solved.

Luxury Bus Flap Lands T.I. In Hot Water With The Feds

After only one day of freedom following his ten month prison term, rapper T.I. has been sent back to federal custody once again last night. His lawyer denies that T.I. violated any terms of his probation, but instead claims that there was an issue with his method of transport from the Arkansas prison to the halfway house in Atlanta. Apparently TIP celebrated his semi freedom by renting a baller luxury bus, which—let’s face it—is exactly what we’d want to do if we were just released from prison. But apparently the Federal Bureau of Prisons is also the Federal Bureau of Buzzkill, and are very not cool with his deluxe vehicle. Steezin’ is not a crime!

His lawyer Steve Sadow tells TMZ that “We are awaiting the opportunity to quickly resolve whatever the issue may be that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has with TI’s method of transportation, bus, from Arkansas to Atlanta, so that T.I. can return to the halfway house to complete the remaining days of his sentence.” T.I.’s uncle says that there were no drugs or alcohol of any kind on the bus, and he showed up to the halfway house in great shape. “He stopped drinking a long time ago,” the uncle added.

There’s also trouble brewing for VH1′s proposed reality series about T.I.’s return to free living. Apparently the halfway house flatly refuses to allow taping on its premises. A representative for Dismas Charities, where T.I. is set to serve out the remaining one month of his sentence, tells TMZ that there is “absolutely no way” VH1 is allowed to film. “It’s just not going to happen.” Damn, that’s a lot of drama for episode one!

Kris Humphries Seated Next To Kim Kardashian’s Sex Tape Partner On Flight

We never thought we’d say this, but we’re actually starting to feel bad for Kris Humphries. Getting married to Kim Kardashian certainly must have its upsides, but lately it seems like this dude keeps getting thrown under the bus. He went from being a pro-baller to being mocked by his team, controlled by the meddling mother-in-law to end all meddling mother-in-laws, and having his emotions/stupidity exploited on national television. Kris is a lamb among the Kardashian Klan’s wolves. Even TMZ couldn’t deny his bewildered look as he was being dragged from one PR stunt to another. The guy never had a chance. And now to top it all off, Kris had to share a flight seated next to his wife’s sex tape partner, Ray J. Fasten your seat-belts folks, because we’re gonna experience some turbulence.

The pair came face to face for the first time this Sunday on a Delta flight from LA to New Orleans. Humphries boarded in Minnesota, and sat down directly across the aisle from none other than Ray J. When he realized the identity of his plane-mate, Kris reportedly moved to a seat in front of the rapper and stared “stone faced” ahead for a period of what onlookers called “awkward silence.” Ray J tried to break the ice by going over and congratulating him on his marriage, but Kris was having none of it according to the New York Post. Apparently he acted like he had no idea who Ray J was, but Ray called BS.  “Come on, you know who I am,” he reportedly said. “I just want to say congratulations.” Busted, Kris admitted ‘Oh yeah, yeah, I’m sorry I know who you are.” And thus began what must have felt like the longest flight in history.

Whoever handles the seating arrangements for Delta clearly has a dark sense of humor. Unless it was Kim herself, determined to capture the encounter on hidden cameras for an episode of her show. We  hate to say it but…we’d totally watch that one. Hang in there Kate Middleton Kris!

Famous Faces Turn Up For Justin Timberlake’s Surprise NYC Gig

He’s back! Well, sorta. Everyone has been on Justin Timberlake’s case to cool it with the movies and get back to being the greatest song and dance man since Michael Jackson (braces self for the flood of comments). And now it looks like JT is heeding our pleas, at least a little bit. Last month he premiered a music video he directed for the hip-hop group Free Sol, and last night he did a surprise show for lucky diners at New York’s Southern Hospitality restaurant. The gig was extremely last minute, with Justin tweeting only a few hours before that anyone in the New York area should head to the uptown eatery he co-ownsand see him perform with Free Sol. The place was reportedly packed with people, and even a few famous faces, including Kim Kardashian, husband Kris Humphries and Emma Roberts. Is he testing the waters for his first return to the concert stage since 2007′s FutureSex/LoveShow? Or maybe he was just trying to drum up customers and publicity for his food joint. We’re just glad to see him getting back into the music groove. Check out more in the gallery below!

T.I. Starts Shooting A New Reality Show On Post-Prison Life

He’s only been out of prison a day, and already T.I. is involved in a shooting…for his new reality series, that is! *zing* The rapper has begun filming a new show that will chronicle life after his ten month prison sentence. In fact, the cameras apparently started rolling mere minutes after his release. The series will air on our very own VH1, which says the show will follow T.I. as he “re-adjusts to life as a free man.” The series has yet to be given a title, but it’s going to be choc full of intimate moments, including his emotional reunion with his wife and kids. It sounds like a real heart-stopper, nail-biter, tear-jerker, and other bodily functions we haven’t even considered! “Can the King stay on the straight and narrow while juggling the chaos of his kingdom?” asks the press release? Drama.com! The show is scheduled to premiere on December 5th. Will you be tuning in?

Robert Pattison Buys Homeless Man A New Guitar

The FABLife’s super crush on Robert Pattinson got a little stronger today with this news of his sweet deed on the streets of LA. As R-Patz strolled down the sidewalk, he noticed a homeless street musician playing a busted up acoustic guitar. After putting some cash into the man’s collection cup, Rob, a well known music lover, ventured into a nearby music shop. A few minutes later he emerged carrying an electric guitar for himself, and a brand new six string which he handed to the street musician.

The random act of kindness was witnessed by two British tourists. “Robert quickly went back to his car and drove off,” one told Britain’s Sun newspaper. “We were gobsmacked when he handed the acoustic guitar to the tramp.” So was the musician, who couldn’t quite believe that this all was for real. “”The busker was totally shell-shocked. He had no idea who Robert was. I think he thought the guitar was stolen.” If this story of The Vamp and the Tramp doesn’t warm your heart, then check your pulse because you might be legally dead. Yes, like a vampire.

The Shakur Family Insists That No One Smoked Tupac

Here’s a story they didn’t prepare us for in Fab Life school. The family of slain rapper Tupac Shakur is denying reports that his ashes were smoked in tribute. This follows a video that was posted on VladTV yesterday by Tupac’s former group The Outlawz, who claimed that they cut some marijuana with their dead band-mate’s ashes and blazed up, while Pac’s mother Afeni looked on. But now his family members are (predictably) calling BS and saying that there’s no way this could have ever happened. A spokesperson gave TMZ the priceless/insane quote that his mother would “never participate in smoking her son.” While the Shakurs can’t totally prove this bizarre memorial never took place, they insist that the Outlawz “would have had to sneak the remains past the family member in charge of keeping an eye on the ashes at the memorial.” Considering that no one in the family would let that happen, it looks like the Outlawz’s bizarre story is up in smoke.

Kanye West Wants To Be Godfather To Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Baby

Here comes Uncle Yeezy! On the heels of Beyonce’s big announcement that she’s expecting her first child, family friend Kanye West has been almost as pumped as daddy Jay-Z. In fact, Kanye’s apparently telling friends that he’d like to be godfather. Maybe they misheard him saying that he’d “like to be God.”  That seems way more his style. Otherwise, we’re not totally sure how to deal with this unexpectedly tender and cute side of ‘Ye. “He’s been saying he’s going to be godfather and is absolutely thrilled,” a source told Britain’s Sun newspaper. “It will be a huge honor for him.” He’d probably throw a pretty bomb christening party (Code-named: “Watch The Highchair”). Maybe they’ll dip the baby in Cristal. We’ll have to wait until February to see!
