Lauren Conrad looked smoking hot on Late Night With David Letterman last night, so we shouldn’t blame the host for getting a little skeevy. In between dissing her exes Spencer Pratt (“a snake”) and Brody Jenner (“a load”), Letterman let her know how “horrible” it was that Pratt lied about there being a sex tape of her, as he’d really like to have seen it. Umm, yeah.
With all the mean stuff they said about Spencer’s beard, it’s also no surprise that Conrad probably won’t be attending his upcoming wedding to Heidi Montag. Pratt and Montag have been too busy missing each other to comment on their Twitters yet.
This is not funny! Comedian Dane Cook has reportedly been cheated out of millions of dollars by his half brother and former manager Darryl McCauley.
“It’s a terrible betrayal,” Dane said of the allegations that Darryl swiped his money and put it in his own bank account, while being paid $12,500 per month to work as his business manager.
Dane said he and his half brother worked together for several years until one day he “…woke up … and a lot of stuff was missing. There is a good chunk of money that is certainly not accounted for. That’s all I can say about it at this point,” he said.
Darryl is currently in jail awaiting a pre-trial conference. [Source: Us Magazine; Photo: Getty Images]
When Anoop Desai was bumped off Idol Wednesday, we assumed he ‘d return to Chapel Hill as the most popular master’s student in UNC history. But why settle for one town’s single ladies when you could have the world’s, right? “My wildest dream was that I would be a pop star,” Desai told reporters. “And thanks to this show, that dream is going to become a reality.”
I plan on pursuing any record deal I can get…Right now that’s my number one priority. My only priority…I want to go the pop and R&B round…I am looking forward to making that album.
Anoop’s talents didn’t always match his self-satisfaction, so it’s uncertain whether he could be the next Ne-Yo or just another Justin Guarini. But unlike most contestants, he’ll always have grad school to fall back on.
Here’s Susan Boyle’s “Amazing New Look”! The caterpillar eyebrows are gone, she’s smartened up her outfits and the hair’s a shade of brunet rather than wild grey for the Britain’s Got Talent and YouTube star. But show bosses aren’t happy. Why? Because she did it, rather than letting them do it.
“Bosses on the ITV1 talent show which catapulted her to stardom were frantic as they wanted to keep her just the way she was ahead of the finals,” reports the Sun.
Translation: We had an expensive show makeover planned of our own, which we were going to show as a tear-filled montage while playing James Blunt’s “You’re Beautiful”. Now with your $50 dye job, and MIND OF YOUR OWN, you’ve ruined it for us! [Photos: PA, Getty Images]
Check out this video of Britney Spears performing in concert last night in Oakland, California. In it, she loses a chunk of her fake hair while performing the most awkward acrobatic act we’ve ever witnessed. It must kinda suck being the extensions attached to a crazy bird like Brit. We’d try to run away too if we had the chance. [via TMZ]
It looks like scary shoulders are here to stay, style-wise! First Victoria Beckham, then Kate Mossand now they’ve tumbled down the fashion chain to reach Miley Cyrus. The teen queen sported a toned-down version of those super shoulders at the UK premiere of the Hannah Montana movie, but it was the super-short length of her Herve Ledger dress that fueled the most headlines. We think she looks fierce, but what do you think of Miley’s red carpet look? Fab or fail? [Photo: Splash News Online]
Yay! Some happy-Friday news from the Slumdog Millionaire stars to see us into the weekend. After the distressing story concerning young star Rubina Ali, here’s a more life-affirming picture — one that clearly shows the flick’s lovebirds Dev Pateland Freida Pintoleaning in for a kiss. Snuggled up outside a cafe in Israel where she’s filming her new movie Miral, they pretty much dispelled that lame claim that they’re “just friends”. Awww. [Photo: Splash News Online]
OK – we’ve had Sister Act and Legally Blonde, the musicals. We’ve accepted the fact that nowadays ANYTHING is considered perfect fodder for a singing’n’dancing extravaganza. But the death of UK reality star Jade Goody? Apparently so.
“[One of the] various projects we’ve got in the pipeline is a musical we’ve got coming out in about four months time and its going to be the story of her life. We’re going to be on the search for who is going to play Jade,” her friend Danny Hayward said.
Of course, it’s the natural next stage to cash in on celebrate a celeb’s life following autobiographies, TV specials and magazine tribute issues. We are horrified can’t wait to see how they turn her poverty and drug-stricken upbringing, antics on Big Brother, and battle with cancer into some alternately peppy or heartfelt showtunes. Sigh.

She may be a world-touring, 27-year-old mother of two, but Britney Spears is in no shape to speak for herself. An LA Superior Court judge denied an attempt to make her testify at a hearing to place permanent restraining orders on ex-manager Sam Lufti and lawyer Jon Eardley.
Eardley’s lawyer tried to force Spears to appear, arguing that her wishes aren’t truly being represented by father Jamie. But after hearing closing arguments Tuesday, the court announced to the press that “there was a finding of a judge of the Superior Court that she lacks the capacity to testify.” Even if this is just to protect her from hangers-on, their decision begs the question: will she ever be able to run her own life again?
