Not to kick a man while he’s down, but, darn it if the story of Randy Travis‘ arrest this morning doesn’t sound like something you’d like to hear accompanied by a twangy guitar. From what we gather, piecing things together from the beginning, the country crooner had “an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl” (per his official statement) and an argument with his girlfriend (per what he told the police) that somehow resulted in him driving his 1998 black Pontiac (damn, that’s kind of an old car for an award-winning pro, no?) to the First Baptist Church of Sanger, Texas, on Monday morning, the local NBC affiliate reports. He said he was trying to drive back to his ranch, 20 miles away, but the officer found him parked in front of the church with an open bottle of wine in the passenger seat.
“Mr. Travis was unaware of his location and kept asking me to take him home,” the officer stated. Travis was booked at 1:30 a.m. at the Denton County jail and released a few hours later.
Eli Manning and Tom Brady competed in a nail-biting battle of wits, endurance and strength last night, and experts and amateurs alike are no doubt reviewing every minute to see whether it was down to their individual choices or the support of those around them that lead to the ultimate outcome: Tom Brady is officially this week’s Hotness! Oh, and Eli Manning won the Super Bowl.
Maybe Gisele’s prayers were misheard and somehow got directed to this competition, rather than the one on the field? Anyway, we like it when everyone comes out a winner. While tomorrow, we’ll shower the Giants in ticker tape for their victory, today it’s time to help Tom celebrate his Hotness title with a little gallery viewing.
Oh, boy. Cue the baby vampire jokes, people. Jackson Rathbone — a.k.a. strong silent Jasper Hale in Twilight, a.k.a. lead singer of 100 Monkeys, a.k.a. a distinguished Weekly Hotness alumnus — and his girlfriend Sheila Hafsadi are expecting their first child, Us Weekly reports. The actor, 27, met his fair green-haired-and-tattooed lady while on tour with 100 Monkeys. She is said to be five months pregnant.
The Internets say Hafsadi, 24, is a burlesque dancer, and some say she was working at the Venice Beach Freakshow. But we have yet to locate photos or any other proof of this. And we think it would be super cool to see them. She seems pretty adorable, from what we’ve seen, and has the requisite awesome tats.
Hey, dollar-sign fans! Ke$ha’s birthday is coming up on March 1, and we’ve been so worried that we would never be able to throw the appropriate party to celebrate. Thank goodness Glamour came to our rescue with a very enlightening interview. The magazine thought it would tempt us with the promise of “makeunder” photos of the singer, but fancy photo shoots are nothing compare to the gem buried deep in the story, but uncovered by all sorts of blogs today: “Sometimes when I’m sad, I make my assistant put on the penis outfit and bounce around my house.”
We’ll let others worry about whether this assistant is eligible for worker’s comp and in need of intense counseling at the moment. What we’d rather do is focus on how this article has inadvertently taught us how to throw the best Ke$ha party ever. You’ll need:
One (1) Halloweenie costume, available for $59.99 plus shipping and handling at Buy.com. (Side note: We’re more worried about the health of the model who posed for this costume photo. Was this his big break?) Read more…
We kind of already guessed that Demi Moore was in some kind of rehab after her hospitalization last month. Even her official statement after the incident — which was allegedly caused by a nitrous oxide O.D. — said, “Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health.” So the news that she’s been at the Cirque Lodge in Utah since leaving the hospital, according to E! Online, is hardly surprising. “She’s on total lockdown and only talking to a small group of people,” a source told the site, adding that she’s being treated for both addiction and an eating disorder. What is surprising is that we all learned about this so many days later. Props to Demi’s people for keeping it so hush-hush. (Then again, maybe Demi’s people could have helped her more before it got to this point? Sorry, no judgments.)
According to addiction site TheFix.com, the Cirque Lodge costs from $30,000-$45,000 a month. It’s been the facility of choice for the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Kirsten Dunst and Eva Mendes. Besides great spa perks, the place offers helicopter rides and lots of hikes in the Rocky Mountains. Check it out: Read more…

Last night’s Jersey Shore episode was called “Nothing But Nice,” but it should’ve been titled “Nothing But Disgusting” with all of the talk of Snooki’s nether regions, Mike’s unfortunate wardrobe malfunction and, well some straight-up pee. Here’s a countdown of the most nauseating moments:
5. Snooki Is a Carnival Ride: This was a quick moment, but a stomach-churning one nonetheless. While the kids are getting ready to go to Jenks for some mid-day boozing, Deena bounces on Snooki’s stomach with her junk in her face. Snooki says what’s on everyone’s mind: “I’m going to throw up!”
4. Snooki Is House-Trained: When all the bathrooms are taken, Snooki (the family dog) heads to the porch to squat beneath the stairs. Afterward, she attempts to cover the mess with some unfortunate soul’s shorts. “They pee outside and drink out of bowls, we don’t need pets.” Well said, Pauly.
We are smart, most of the time. And also we like serious movies every once in a while. But despite Gary Oldman’s Oscar nomination, we’ve kind of been avoiding Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Just didn’t seem like our thing. Until now. The actor appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and gave a dramatic reading of an official synopsis of last night’s Jersey Shore. Which was definitely one of the grossest episodes of the show we’ve seen in a while.
Now, Oldman is definitely not your typical highbrow British actor — Sid and Nancy proved long ago that the guy can do gross. But he can put on a posh voice like nobody’s business, especially when saying, “While dancing in a club, Snooki accidentally pees on herself. She sprays perfume on herself and calls it a sure shower.” We love the way the words “JWoww” and “weiner” just role off his tongue. See for yourself in the video after the jump.
Well, if her past year of sexy performances and videos haven’t proved to you that Demi Lovato is no longer a sweet little Disney girl, her shoot with Tyler Shields might. It’s not on the level of Shields’ Lindsay Lohan vampire murder scene shoot, but it’s provocative nonetheless. She seduces a lollipop, smashes a mirror with a hammer, dons a ’50s pinup wig and, in a simple, bold shot, looks quite daringly at the camera with her hair slicked back, a dress falling off her shoulders, one eyebrow raised and bright-red lips parted in a way that is definitely not suited for the typical Sonny With a Chance viewer.
“Doing a crazy photoshoot with the infamous/brilliant @tylershields.. Beyond excited.. But um I hope I survive……. ” Demi tweeted earlier this month, and later marveled at the glass in her hair.
There was a while there when High School Musical 3 seemed like more than enough. We were happy to see the Wildcats make it to the big screen, and just as happy to see them move on to bigger and (sometimes) better things. We did not really feel the need to buy Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure on DVD. That has all changed this week. And no, not because we really miss Corbin Bleu. But because Ashley Tisdale made the brilliant move of posting this video of her and pal Vanessa Hudgens dancing to Beyonce’s “Run the World (Girls).”
The Mad Men season premiere must be getting closer (March 25), because today we have two MM-related headlines that we’ve decided to mash-up into the story we’d really like to read. Story 1: Christina Hendricks and her slamming bod are on the cover of the March Cosmo U.K. In the interview, she talks very sweetly about how she met her husband, Geoffrey Arend, and what she thinks of being a sex symbol. “It’s incredibly flattering and surprising, and I didn’t think for a second when I started Mad Men that people would talk about me as being sexy or a pin up. ‘My husband has a good laugh about it, of course.’ ”
Story 2: Fashionista is reporting that after the success of their first Mad Men-inspired line, they’ll be releasing a second one, with 40 pieces of men’s and women’s clothing and accessories designed with the help of the show’s costume designer, Janie Bryant.
Now the story we’d like to read: Buying these items of Banana Republic clothing will instantly make you look like Christina Hendricks or Jon Hamm. I mean, really. It’s not the 1960s anymore, can’t science come up with this product?
