NBC Exec Threatens Revenge On Speidi

spencer pratt & heidi montag

While the ongoing drama over Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt quitting—and returning to—and quitting—and returning to—I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! may just be an orchestrated attempt to win attention and increase ratings…they’re doing a damn good job of it. NBC exec Paul Telegdy told Ryan Seacrest that the pair are indeed returning to the show, but that revenge will be had. Oh yes, revenge will be had.

They are everything that’s wrong with America…they are insincere, lazy, entitled and they claim the devil has possessed them. They are back and this time they are contrite…yeah right. What they don’t realize is that they are now going to be examined and their value system utterly deconstructed.

They are going to spend the night somewhere in isolation and guarded with lots of surprises…but not traditional reality [stunts]. These people really are going to bare their souls.

We’ve already seen them shoved in a dark room full of rats, bats and insects and covered in eel gunk—what are they going to do now, waterboard them? Call in Dick Cheney? And now the Red Cross is no longer taking Spencer’s “charity,” is there any reason for him to be on the show aside from our desire to see him suffer excruciating pain?

Not that that isn’t reason enough. We’re just saying.

Ashlee Attacks Michelle Trachtenberg Over Pete

Looks like motherhood hasn’t matured Ashlee Simpson much. Perez Hilton says that the singer recently went off on Michelle Trachtenberg—husband Pete Wentz’s ex—worse than she did that McDonalds cashier a few years back. Seems the former lovers (and their current significant others) were coincidentally seated near each other at party in LA Monday. Things started friendly enough, with Simpson showing off baby pictures. And then…

As the evening went on and Ashlee started to get sloppier, things got out of control. She was staring directly at Michelle and starting hurling insults at her. She was grinding up on Pete like a stripper. It was actually pretty disgusting!

Simpson allegedly screamed “I hope you know, the whole time you were dating Pete, I was fucking him!” To which Trachtenberg classily responded, “I’ve never said bad things about you. I’m happy for you guys.” Simpson continued to get in the Gossip Girl star’s face until Skye Everly, wife of Blink-182‘s Mark Hoppus, escorted her out. Pete supposedly stood “mortified” throughout his wife’s rampage. Man up, dude!

Says Simpson’s rep, “It was just a misunderstanding. Ashlee has since apologized to Michelle and they remain on good terms.” We’re so sure.

EXCLUSIVE: Bridget Marquardt And Nick Carpenter Going Strong

bridget-marquardt-nick-carpenter

When she’s not busy hosting her Travel Channel show or planning Kendra Wilkinson‘s bachelorette party, Bridget Marquardt only has eyes for director beau Nick Carpenter.

A source tells The FABlife that the couple was all smiles over the weekend, while attending the GBK MTV Gifting Lounge. The pair were “very happy, exchanging sweet glances at each other” while checking out some of the products at the lounge, before “relaxing by the pool and eating hot dogs while listening to the tunes of Samantha Mollen.”

So much for Hef’s theory that Bridget may run into trouble with her new relationship because she is always traveling! Bridget and Nick almost seem as happy as soon-to-be wed Kendra and Hank Baskett. [Photo: Wireimage]

Raising The Bar

Why would supermodel Bar Rafaeli take a Sharpie to that flawless figure of hers? The smokin’ hot Israeli goddess let the people at Esquire scribble part of a Stephen King story all over her curves for the July cover of the magazine, where Leonardo DiCaprio‘s lady love talks about her background, getting inked, and what other supermodel she admires.

On Israeli women: “It’s the mentality. Israel is so small and we struggle just to stay alive. Israeli girls are a little more – I’m not comparing – but we’re very confident. We like to have fun. We’re very free. It shows in our character and it goes in the camera.”

On the unique Esquire shoot: “I haven’t seen anything like that ever. So I wanted to be the girl who did it.”

Her ambitions: “Heidi Klum. I really like what she’s doing. It’s what I picture myself as.”[Source: Esquire; Photos: James White]

Bobby Brown And Whitney Houston Have Big News

bobby-brown-whitney-houston
Whitney Houston, who hasn’t released an album in seven years, has been teasing fans with a comeback since 2007 — and her record label finally announced Sept. 1 as its official release date. But Whitney isn’t the only one with big news.

Her ex-husband Bobby Brown, with whom she has a 16-year-old daughter, preempted her day in the sun with an announcement of his own: a new baby. According to TMZ, Bobby told a crowd last night at a Las Vegas nightclub that his girlfriend and manger, Alicia Etheridge, gave birth to a boy four days ago.

Whitney’s album is still untitled, but Cassius is the name of Bobby’s new baby. Congrats to both. See, it’s never too late for a comeback. Sort of. [Photo: Getty Images]

David Carradine Found Dead, Possible Suicide

carradine

David Carradine, star of the classic Kung Fu TV series and films like Kill Bill and Death Race 2000, died in a Bangkok hotel yesterday. A maid reportedly found Carradine sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and other parts of his body. The actor, 72, was in Thailand for a film shoot.

Carradine, who appeared in over 200 movies and TV shows in his career, had previously spoken of suicide to the press, though no medical report or suicide note has been released. Carradine is survived by his wife Annie, four siblings (including actors Robert and Keith Carradine), as well as daughters Calista and Kansas, from a previous marriage.

UPDATE: Carradine’s rep is claiming that his death was an “accident,” not suicide. The BBC originally reported that the rope was found around his “head and genitals” before changing the phrasing to “head and body,” potentially suggesting auto-erotic asphyxiation.

Evan Rachel Wood Makes Out With Childhood TV Brother

evan rachel wood & shane west

Congratulations, Evan Rachel Wood: you’ve found a hook up creepier than Mickey Rourke and Marilyn Manson combined. Page Six reports that Wood was spotted “all over” Walk In The Clouds actor Shane West in a Vegas club last weekend, “making out in the middle of the table.” What they fail to note is that West played Wood’s older brother on the critically acclaimed drama Once And Again, which debuted when West was 21, and Wood was 12. That’s right, 12. And now she’s all grown up.

So what’s the deal? Did Wood have a long-standing crush on her former co-star? One he was willing to take advantage of despite the gross factor? And what does Billy Campbell think about his TV daughter getting down with his TV son? Uh oh, wait a second—he’s single too!
