Khloe Booted, Kim Blogs

kim-kardashian-khloe-kardashian

Khloe Kardashian is not leaving Celebrity Apprentice gracefully. After Donald Trump fired her not for her work ethic, but for her DUI arrest last year, Khloe put The Donald on blast.

“It wasn’t because of my work ethic, it wasn’t because I was slacking. It was because of my DUI. I don’t think I should have been fired for that reason alone. I just wish Mr. Trump would have handled the situation a little differently,” Khloe said.

Her sis Kim also chimed in on her blog, saying, “She obviously has made an awful mistake but definitely has taken responsibility for her actions and we are all very proud of her.” [Source: Hollyscoop; Photo: Getty Images]

Guess Who’s Knockin’ Boots?

was spotted strutting on the set of Iron Man 2 in 2-3″ heels. Why would the 5’10″ actor don the disco-ready booster-shoes? Co-star Gwyneth Paltrow is a tall 5’9″, but we hardly believe these boots are Marvel superhero approved.

Holly Rubs Criss Angel’s Ex The Wrong Way

holly-madison-pool-party

Holly Madison apparently ruffled some feathers when she threw her ex Hugh Hefner his 83rd birthday party at the Palms Hotel and Casino pool in Las Vegas this weekend, and it wasn’t the new girlfriends who were getting their claws out.

Holly reportedly offended a Las Vegas reporter named Alicia Jacobs when Holly told her that her dress was “an interesting choice for a pool party,” where Hef’s other exes Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt were also in attendance, along with his three new girlfriends, Crystal Harris and Karissa and Kristina Shannon.

Alicia, who also dated Holly’s OTHER ex Criss Angel, got all Lohan on us and hopped on her Twitter to tell the world about how she felt about Miss Madison.

“Holly Madison was not so sweet, at least not to me,” she Twittered. “She’s also not a very good interview. I could tell from her demeanor and her responses that it was an emotional day for Holly. I wish her luck with her future and her career.”

Holly dismissed Alicia’s remarks and said she meant no harm with the comment about her dress.

“That’s really strange, I meant it sincerely,” Holly said. But Holly couldn’t help herself to throw in a backhanded compliment to her ex’s ex.

“I’m like, trying to hold my tongue because I don’t see her as Criss’ type,” Holly said. Oh snap!

Anna Faris’ Revealing Dress: Too Much?

anna faris

Opinions are split over the showy dress Anna Faris wore to the premiere of Observe & Report yesterday. Go Fug Yourself says it’s a “wee bit cheeseball” and “might be on backwards.” Meanwhile, PopWrap calls it “booby, bawdy and beautiful.” We’re tempted to say they’re both right. Either way, let’s just be glad it’s not on Seth Rogen.

Check out photos from the premiere below.

In 1997, MTV VJ Bill Bellamy and Australian actor Russell Crowe scored respective breakthrough roles in Def Jam’s How To Be Player and L.A. Confidential. Crowe went on to receive three Oscar nominations, winning in 2000 for Gladiator. Bellamy…hasn’t. Both stars were born on April 7th. Which one is older?

Levi Johnston Brings Palin Babymama Drama To Tyra

Sarah Palin so doesn’t need this crap. There she is, trying to juggle her job as governor, a young baby, her daughter’s baby and plans for a potential 2012 presidential campaign…all from Alaska. She so doesn’t need Levi Johnston, the estranged babydaddy of grandson Tripp, going on The Tyra Banks show with his distraught family. It’s hard to sell yourself as a caring, good ol’ gal when the other grandma—up on drug charges—is bawling about her heartbreak on TV (she can’t even get photos of the baby! Aww!).

Between that and Levi suggesting Sarah knew he was giving daughter Bristol his pistol (“moms are very smart”), it’s no wonder the governor’s statement on the matter is harsh:

We’re disappointed that Levi and his family, in a quest for fame, attention and fortune, are engaging in flat-out lies, gross exaggeration, and even distortion of their relationship. Bristol’s focus will remain on raising Tripp, completing her education, and advocating abstinence. It is unfortunate that Levi finds it more appealing to exploit his previous relationship with Bristol than to contribute to the well being of the child.

Translation:  Sarah Palin so doesn’t need this crap…and it’s not going to stop anytime soon.

Flashback Lunch: Whitney Houston Paid Ransom To Save Bobby Brown’s Life

whitney houston & bobby brown

A new book alleges that Whitney Houston paid $400,000 ransom to drug dealers who threatened then-husband Bobby Brown‘s life in 1993 (the same year their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, was born). According to David Collins, a former member of the NY gang Preacher Crew, Brown owed $25,000, and was kidnapped and held at gunpoint until Whitney came up with the cash. “She was personally going to bring $400,000 to get her man back,” writes Collins in Preacher Of The Streets. The next day, she did just that. She was wearing a wig.” Brown and Houston’s reps have refused to comment.

Brown and Houston’s marriage continued for well over a decade after this alleged brush with danger (they separated in 2006). Check out the gallery for scenes from their infamous romance.

Samantha Seeks Restraining Order, Lindsay ‘Focusing On Business’

samantha-ronson-lindsay-lohan

The break-up between Samantha Ronson and Lindsay Lohan is, as expected, filled with drama, crying, and broken windows.

Samantha Ronson’s mother and sister asked Beverly Hills police how they could obtain a restraining order three days after Lindsay was banned from a Ronson family event.

“They were directed to the court to get a restraining order,” Beverly Hills Sgt. Nutall said.

Three weeks ago a window was broken at Samantha’s house after a fight between the two lovers.

Meanwhile, Lindsay has reportedly been hanging with her family to help her mend her broken heart.

“Is she upset? Yes. Has it been a rough week? Yes. But her family’s around her and she’s just focusing on business right now,” a source says. And by business, they are referring to her spray tan line Sevin Nyne.

“The important thing is that she’s taking space and time to breathe. That’s what her family is here to do – help make sure she takes care of herself.”

Although Samantha reportedly changed the locks on her home, the source says that she and Lindsay “are totally communicating. What’s going to happen? Who knows?” [Source: People, Us; Photo: Getty Images]

Kal Penn Is Not Dead…Just Working For The President

barack obama & kal penn

House fans were shocked last night by the sudden suicide of Dr. Lawrence Kutner, played by Kal Penn. The Harold & Kumar actor has a new gig working for the White House, and Penn—who volunteered for Barack Obama‘s presidential campaign—asked the producers if they could take care of Kutner’s storyline…permanently.

I was incredibly honored a couple of months ago to get the opportunity to go work in the White House. I got to know the President and some of the staff during the campaign and had expressed interest in working there, so I’m going to be the associate director in the White House office of public liaison. They do outreach with the American public and with different organizations. They’re basically the front door of the White House. They take out all of the red tape that falls between the general public and the White House. It’s similar to what I was doing on the campaign.

The producers are warning Entertainment Weekly that fans shouldn’t expect much explanation for Kutner’s sudden death (“Obviously, there are reasons, but the notion that the reasons are too complicated for even House to figure out is what was drawing us to it”). Confused fans looking for a place to grieve can go to Fox’s memorial page for the character, which leads to a Facebook group so earnest you might feel like something bad has happened to Penn. Maybe he should hold a press conference just so everyone knows he’s OK.

Britney To Kick Dad To The Curb?

britney-spears-dad

It’s not exactly news that Britney Spears is finding her dad Jamie‘s conservatorship of practically everything in her life a little hard-going. Now the UK’s Star magazine claims their relationship has gotten so bad, she’s trying to end her Circus world tour early and has forced him to take a vacation in the middle of it. “He’ll give Britney her space for a few weeks, if everything goes smoothly,” the mag reports.

Claims are also made that Britney’s been speaking to lawyers in order to end her dad’s control, and that this has taken its toll on her well-being. “[Her people] are scared she’s headed for another breakdown…Britney blames this tour for making her feel insecure again, and she feels none of her performances are good enough.” Yes, well, we could have told you that taking a fragile, mentally unstable woman who’s apparently not even allowed her own mobile phone on the road for a huge world tour might not be the perfect solution.
