While You Were Debating Pulling a Sue Ellen Mishky What With This Heat

BRITNEY SPEARS TEEN CHOICE AWARDS

  • Britney Spears’ young children were overheard yelling “Sh*t!” while out with their mother. Aww, in just a couple years, they’re gonna be little white gangbangers like their father. Cute!
  • The girlfriend of the son of Michael Douglas was arrested from trying to sneak heroin into prison in the handle of an electric toothbrush. Her mistake, it turns out, was not creating heroin toothpaste. “Number 1 recommended by high dentists.”
  • Congratulations to Jennifer Hudson, who has given birth to a dreamboy, a little son named David Daniel Otunga Jr.
  • Confirming similar rumors we’ve heard in the world of morning shows, an NBC staffer says that despite Kate Gosselin’s tears on The Today Show the other morning, the reality show vadg was acting like a major hosebeast behind the scenes, threatening to walk off the set and insulting the deity that is Meredith Viera. Which is a mistake, as Viera could very seriously beat her ass.
  • Bravo’s NYC Prep has been renewed for a second season! Which makes us wonder: How many seasons of this show will be greenlit until one day, God willing, all of their parents are arrested?

Douglas’ Girlfriend Busted For Bringing Him Drugs

Cameron-Douglas

Just a week after Cameron Douglas was busted for drug-trafficking, his girlfriend was also arrested for trying to pass him drugs. Kelly Sott was visiting Douglas at the Manhattan courthouse where his hearing was taking place and attempted to pass him an electric toothbrush that was filled with seven grams of heroin. Investigators opened the battery compartment to find the drug hidden inside. If we may, how does that not look suspicious? “Honey, I worry about your teeth, so I brought you this electric toothbrush. You just had to have it. At the courthouse.” This would be a more effective anti-drug PSA than the stoners who run over a kid on his bike and laugh about it, we think.

Law enforcement says that Douglas called Sott and asked her to bring some items to the courthouse and Sott told the officers that, “she was not aware of the contents of the toothbrush that she delivered.” If that’s the case, it just makes things a whole lot worse for Douglas, who already faces a mandatory 10-year minimum sentence for his crimes.

Kelly Bites Back Against Weight Haters

Kelly-Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson has remained grounded even as her career continues to skyrocket, which is why she’s the most down to earth diva we know. As we told you last week, the singer is snapping back at haters in a new interview with Self magazine, saying, “‘When people talk about my weight, I’m like, ‘You seem to have a problem with it; I don’t. I’m fine!”

She also reveals her philosophy to maintaining her physique. “My happy weight changes,” she says, adding, “I love healthy stuff and junk an equal amount. Whatever I’m craving, I go for it.”

The singer, who stays in shape with Crossfit workouts, says the less she thinks about her bod, the better off she is. “For me, it’s the times when I’m not paying attention that I end up losing weight,” Kelly reveals. “But I’m never trying to lose weight – or gain it. I’m just being!” [Photo:GettyImages]

Be sure to check out Kelly on “VH1 Divas,” which will air live on Sept. 17 at 9PM EST. Until then, get your divas fix by reading the full VH1 Divas press release, following the VH1 Divas Twitter and watching videos by the artists in the lineup. Plus, leave a testimonial for one of the divas at divastories.vh1.com.

Self Alters Kelly Clarkson’s Body To Inspire Women Into Greatness

Kelly Clarkson appeared on the cover of Self this week, and while at first glance, the photo looks like your standard, run-of-the-mill magazine cover unrealistic-body-image Photoshop, there’s a little more to the story…

Clarkson Self Magazine

In response to claims that Clarkson’s body was obviously altered, Self’s editor-in-chief had this to say about cover shoots:

This is art, creativity and collaboration. It’s not, as in a news photograph, journalism. It is, however, meant to inspire women to want to be their best. That is the point…

Did we alter her appearance? Only to make her look her personal best. Did we publish an act of fiction? No. Not unless you think all photos are that.

Ohhh, that makes so much sense! Ladies, they’re not insulting you by bombarding you with body images that are graphically altered and thus literally unattainable, they’re inspiring you to be your best! So stop slacking and start gaining magical bodies, you uninspired normal-os!

It’s just like how they put pictures of time machines on the cover of every Scientific American issue so they can be like, “Why haven’t you invented this yet, f*ckheads?”

Bill Clinton Likes Cheesy Movies

bill-clinton-gerard-butler

We always figured Bill Clinton for the Easy Rider or Cool Hand Luke kind of movie lover. We’ve seen the pics of Bill and Hillary in their groovy ’70s duds and we all know his history with inhaling, so he just struck us as that type.

Alas, Bill is not the man we figured him for, because he recently made a special request to Sony for a screener of The Ugly Truth (yes, the Katherine Heigl movie) and Sony confirms that they delivered it to him last weekend. While at first it seems out of character, when you think about it, there was a big deal made about Katherine wearing a special pair of vibrating underpants in the film. Perhaps the dirty dog just wanted something to entertain his gray anatomy. [E! Online. Photos: GettyImages]

Tom Brady: Gisele Is “The Girl Version Of Me”

tom-brady-details-2

Tom Brady poses for the September issue of Details and tells us why life is not exactly how he envisioned it, why modeling is harder than football, and why he and wife Gisele Bundchen are just right for each other.

On modeling being harder than playing football: “When I’m out on the football field, I have so much confidence in what I’m doing. With [the modeling], I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m at the whim of the photographer and the crew.”

On life and having a child out of wedlock:
“That’s not how you envisioned your life, that’s not how you envisioned having children, but it happens. Life is not living in the suburbs with a white picket fence. That’s not life. Somehow our American culture has made it out that that’s what life needs to be—and that if it’s not that, it’s all screwed up. It’s not. You go through life and you try the best you can.”

On being set-up on a blind date with Gisele:
“This friend told me he knew a girl version of me.”  Gisele chimes in, “And he said to me he’d found a boy version of me.” [Source: Details; Photos: Steven Klein]

Oksana The Knocked Up Lover Speaks!

Oksana Grigorieva

Oksana Grigorieva was nine years old when Mel Gibson and his wife Robyn got married – she couldn’t have known then that she would someday be famous for breaking the marriage up. Now, the woman best known for getting knocked up with Gibson’s eighth child has spoken out about wanting fame on her own terms. Grigorieva started dating Gibson in 2006 after his drunk driving arrest. She told Reuters, “How can I be judged for falling in love? We live in the same city. I don’t control who I meet. I meet many people in art and music and film, but love is inexplicable.”

She also explained that their relationship wasn’t the cause of Mel’s divorce, saying, “I thought he was happily married until I was reassured otherwise.” And then she got knocked up. Funny how Mel, well known for his Catholicism, upholds the no condom rule but the cheating on the wife even if the marriage unhappy rule is flexible. ANYway.

The real point of the article though, is to point out that Oksana is a classically trained musician with an album being released on iTunes, so if you remember one thing about her, it’s that she makes music in addition to babies. “I’ve been working on my music all along, but eventually art has to be shared,” she says. “My heart is in writing and creation, but of course only when you share it with others, do you feel fully happy or fulfilled.” [Photo: GettyImages]

Style Wars: Solange Vs. Beyonce

As the Knowles sisters take on Japan to promote the Samantha Thavasa & Disney Collection, the sexy siblings have been dressing less than chic. Yesterday at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, Solange wore an XXL white shirt with a ruffled pink skirt, while sis Beyonce sported a denim-inspired dress. While both looked gorgeous from the neck-up, we’re torn who looked worse south of their shoulders.  [Photos: Getty Images]
