Kim Kardashian was one of thousands in the audience at Michael Jackson‘s funeral yesterday, but the experience was personal for the bootylicious beauty. She’s not only a friend of the Jackson family but she has also experienced the death of her father, and after the memorial she spoke out in support of Michael’s kids. “Michael’s children were so brave brave 2 stand there on stage & speak to the world about their father,” she twittered.
She added, “I spoke at my dad’s funeral & it was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I was shaking & crying & what Paris did was sooo soooo brave!”
It’s not often that we see the vulnerable side of Kim Kardashian. In fact, the only side we’re used to seeing is her backside. Way to actually be human for once, Kimbo. We’re sure Paris appreciates it. [Photo: GettyImages]
First of all, we’d like to say how disappointed in ourselves we are that we never thought of the headline “DJ/Tanner” regarding Lindsay Lohan and Sam Ronson‘s relationship. But that’s neither here nor there; the big LiLo news today is that she’s being sued! Over her spray tan line Sevin Nyne! Oy. Can nothing go right for this girl?
A Florida chemist named Jennifer Sunday is claiming that Lohan and her spray-tan business partner Lorit Simon stole the formula used for the sunless tanning spray LiLo produces. Sunday says that her company, White Wave International, was in negotiations to work with Simon but had not come to an agreement over pricing for the product. Soon after their talks, Simon partnered with Lohan and released the spray under the name Sevin Nyne.
While we don’t know the specifics and think it’s too soon to take either side here, we’re inclined to think Lindsay is not responsible for creating the chemical formula for this product. She’s even twittered her take on the drama, writing: “No formula was stolen for Sevin Nyne. It’s a woman looking for a payday. That’s it!” However, whether or not Lohan and Simon stole the formula responsible for turning countless people orange is to be determined in court. [Photo: WireImage]
Hayden Panettiere is on the publicity trail for her latest movie, I Love You, Beth Cooper and has hit the streets of NYC looking absolutely AMAZING. We’ve criticized her before for dressing too old for her young years, but are taking it all back despite the baby that she was inexplicably cradling in her arms. In a series of edgy but sexy dresses, simple styling and bags of confidence, Hayden looks the business. We want her wardrobe (and let’s be honest, her stylist too). [Photos: Splash News Online]
Ryan Gosling‘s name has popped up in music lyrics (“Lazy Sunday,” anyone?) but we never really saw him as a rock star in his own right. That may change though, now that Gosling and his friend Zach Shields have been signed to Anti- Records.
The duo, who met when Gosling was dating Rachel McAdams and Shields was dating her sister Kayleen, will release an album under the name Dead Man’s Bones, and even notoriously aloof critics at Pitchfork Media love it. While the group’s MySpace page describes the music as “Gothic/Gospel/Showtunes,” Pitchfork likens them to the Arcade Fire. The duo’s self-titled album comes out in October. Not bad for that hot guy from The Notebook. [Photo: GettyImages]
Heidi Pratt is not known for her work ethic – she couldn’t handle school on The Hills, she’s been canned by Brent Bolthouse, and she quit I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here about twelve times. But somehow she’s still getting job offers, most recently, one from Scores, one of New York’s finest gentleman’s clubs. Daily paper AMNY managed to snag a copy of the request Scores sent to Pratt. Here now is the Cliff Notes version:
“Dear Mrs. Heidi Pratt,
As the nation watched you and your husband brave the jungle on “I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here” and continue to brave the ups and downs of “The Hills” and Lauren Conrad, we would like to take this time to present you with an opportunity that will allow you to be center stage-and have a lot of fun while doing so. . .SCORES would be honored to have you dance at our club on the main stage each night for five days, upon which, we will offer you a fee of $25,000.”
It makes total sense that Heidi would receive this offer – she’s posing for an upcoming issue of Playboy and generally speaking, she kinda lives for attention and money. Wouldn’t this garner both? Alas, AMNY reported that her dear, sweet hubby Spencer was appalled at the offer that Heidi received, saying “I feel dirty they even asked.” [Photo: WireImage]
Although the status of their tumultuous on-off relationship changes by the day, Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson appeared to be very much “on” Monday night when the pair had a romantic dinner date at Beverly Hills restaurant Matsuhisa.
Lindsay and Sam arrived at 9:50pm and chose a table right in the middle of the restaurant. While Lindsay, dressed in a white minidress, went to the ladies room, Samantha talked with the restaurant manager and ordered up some special dishes for her lady. Samantha also discussed a recent travel gig with the female manager. When asked about Lindsay, Sam said, “We’re really good.”
After Lindsay returned to the table, the couple seemed relaxed and happy during their dinner. “They shared everything, laughed throughout dinner, and joked with each other. They really looked like a happy couple,” a source tells The FABlife.
Let’s see how long these two stay back on! [Photo: Getty Images]
Probably the most moving moment of Michael Jackson‘s spectacular memorial service was the most simple one. Paris Jackson, Michael’s daughter, took to the stage in an impromptu gesture towards the end of the ceremony to pay her respects to her dad. Supported by aunt Janet Jackson, and in floods of tears, young Paris kept her words brief and heartfelt.
“I just want to say that ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. And I just want to say that I love him so much,” she said.
From never leaving the house without a mask attached to her face to speaking on live television being broadcast globally, it was a raw moment that brought a collective pang of sadness to people around the world. Watch our video and see why her simple speech is generating so many headlines. And amid all the hoopla and worldwide controversy around the King of Pop’s untimely passing, it was an emotional reminder that at the heart of his passing are three young children, who will now grow up without their dad.

A new advertising campaign with Britney Spears as the face of Candies has dropped — and while the photos look very pretty, we instead find it more fun to play our new game. Called “Spot the Airbrush,” it’s a detailed examination of the shot to locate exactly what bits of Britney have enjoyed the delicate stroke of the retoucher’s art. Ahem.
Of course, it’s almost impossible to pinpoint it precisely, but from the fact Britney looks like an unknown long-lost older sister from secretarial college rather than the hot mess we’re used to, we’d say it’s been a little tweaked, no? [Photos: Splash News Online]
She’s not previously known the meaning of having a “job” — having for the last few years been employed under the mantel of Rock Star Daughter (also see Peaches and Pixie Geldof, Jade Jagger and Leah Wood). But now Kimberly Stewart has declared her intention to be an actor, and bagged herself a role in a British period drama as well.
Kimberley is set to get all thespy on us in an episode of Poirot — a much-beloved British crime drama — as “Doris,” a possible suspect in the murder of two high-society types. It’s set to be broadcast later in the year — good luck Kimbo! It can’t be worse than the cheesy horror of Living With Kimberly Stewart, or her where-the-hell-is-it fashion range Pinky Starfish. Maybe, you know, an actual “career” might be in the offing? [Photo: Splash News Online]
Megan Fox has started her journey from sexbomb action flick star to serious, fashionista A-lister by attending a proper catwalk show. The actress has already been hailed as the sexiest in the world, and brought her va-va-voom to the Armani Prive runway show in Paris.
Sitting next to catwalk veteran Cate Blanchett, Megan looked gorgeous (as usual) but made some rookie mistakes. Namely, don’t wear the normal four-inches of makeup and vamp it up for the cameras like you normally do. It’s all about pretending you don’t care, and that you haven’t spotted the lenses. Baby steps, Megan. Baby steps. [Photo: Getty Images]
