Baked Beauty Queen Busted Over Unpaid Restaurant Bill

A sparkly tiara really gives some people a sense of entitlement, or, at least makes them think they deserve some free snacks. Lindsay Evans, the reigning Miss Teen Louisiana USA, and her three friends skipped out on their $46.07 bill at a Bossier city restaurant over the weekend. After racking up the charges, the ladies left the restaurant without paying, but the beauty queen accidentally left her purse behind.

Is Jennifer Aniston Pregnant? Did John Mayer Respond In Song?

When Jennifer Aniston was spotted with ex John Mayer recently, we at Scandalist assumed she wanted another slice of what Mayer has been serving Rolling Stone cover models for years: no attachments, no promises—just some easy action with the young king of blooze. But now a new rumor is brewing that we didn’t expect: a baby!

Sources at Australia’s New Weekly magazine claim that Aniston rang up the AWOL poon bandit after she discovered John’s weiner had left her a little Mayer. Here’s what those sources have to say!

Jennifer is over the moon. She doesn’t want to be a single mom, so she is willing to give John the chance to prove his parent potential. John has written a song about their time together and played it to Jennifer who was incredibly touched.

After the cut, the lyrics* to John’s touching song to Jennifer.

Tara Reid: The Real Housewife Of Miami Beach

Caution: Some things in this picture may be younger than they appear.

Oh Tara Reid. Where did you go wrong? Er, I guess Scandalist knows the answer to that question: boob job, nipple slip, 37 gallons of Patrón, cheesy rainbow-beaded, bejeweled bikini. But we’re still holding on to the girl who was in the Big Lebowski, and we’re having a hard time letting her go. But hey! Tara’s busy bringing 1994 back in her aqua velour vest n’ booty shorts combo, and she’s got no time to worry about that whole career crisis thing that might be bringin’ her down. This is probably a good thing, as Tara seems to have bigger things to fret about: mainly how she let her cute 34-year-old self morph into a washed up mess, with racoon eyes and skin that appears to be washed in cigarette butts and Dunkin Donuts hazelnut coffee. Come on ol’ girl, you’re not a 54-year-old divorcee just yet  – though if she was, she could probably nail down a lucrative reality TV career. On second thought, maybe we’ve just figured out her next move. Someone call Tara’s agent! [Photo: Splash News Online]

Anne Hathaway’s Sexy New Man

Forget images of a heartbroken Anne Hathaway listening to sad songs and mourning over her relationship with thief/Vatican fundraising impostor Raffaello Follieri. “I happened to meet a sexy guy the other day,” the actress reveals. “This guy I know in L.A. is kind of doing it for me right now. You know when sometimes you don’t know someone very well – you’ll probably never see them again – but you just meet them and you’re like ‘WOW, you really have it going on’?” Uh, yes, we at Scandalist know exactly what you mean…

Zac Efron’s First Week As A 21-Year-Old Is Better Than Your Whole Life

Do you have fond memories of being 21? Drinking legally, maybe living it up in college? Whatever. Zac Efron has been 21 for less than a week and has received more blessings than you probably saw over the entire decade. First off, his 21st birthday party was full of 19-year-old celebrity hotties like Brittany Snow and Amanda Bynes. Did yours? Loser.

But what about his career? Zac Efron allegedly signed a contract for $10 million to star in the fourth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie. How many multi-million dollar contracts did you sign at 21? Huh? Efron could buy you and sell you. And just in case you weren’t sold on how mindf*ckingly awesome Efron’s life is, the living god will be crowned “Star Of The Year” by Us Magazine at their Hot Hollywood party tonight.

Some may detect a slight sadness in his face, and assume that—despite his massive success—he’s not actually a happy young man. Nonsense. If Efron weeps, he weeps for our small, petty lives. He’s going places.

Faith Hill Poses In A Bikini For 41st Birthday

Eff the Mercedes - Faith Hill has given herself a real birthday present this year: her ‘new’ hot bod. Scandalist is a bit perplexed because Faith has consistently been gorgeous since she first yee-hawed onto the country music scene, but if a girl wants to tone up, a girl’s gonna tone up! After her 40th birthday, Faith decided to take her workout to the next level with pilates, and she’s currently flaunting her goods on the cover of Shape magazine. The country star reveals, “It was so hard, but ultimately so worth it. My core is much stronger, and my arms are more toned. In fact, wearing a bikini on a magazine cover is my 41st birthday present to myself.”

And to us, Faith. And to us.  [Photo: Shape Magazine]

Fugees’ Pras Passes Bad Checks

Things have gotten pretty tough for former rap titans the Fugees. With incredibly talented (and possibly kooksville) Lauryn Hill M.I.A. in Jersey, and Wyclef Jean making all sorts of disparaging remarks about his former bandmate, Scandalist thought Pras was in good shape. Not so. MissInfo.tv is reporting that the former Fugee and one-time Ghetto Superstar is busying himself by passing bad checks.

After recording the as-yet unreleased Experience Magic, the singer rang up a $19,000 bill at Fight Klub studios — and neglected to pay. After attempting to get in touch with the rapper several times, studio owner Ray Devers contacted Channel 7 to ambush Pras, as only primetime news reporters can. Watch him get cornered in the clip above. [NYMag; MissInfo]

Paris Hilton Threatens To Stay In UK For Good, Alludes To Breakup With Benji Madden

What have we really done to deserve this, America? Now Paris Hilton has threatened promised to stay in Britain for like, ever. Over here to record a totally spurious show in which she finds a British best friend, Paris must be reckoning that with the Madonna and Guy split there’s a vacancy for another U.S. superstar to adopt our ker-azy British ways.

I love it here, I am going to move here permanently. I have already been here for one month and am much, much happier here,” she told the London Paper, and wore a really stupid top saying “Royal Highness” as if to prove it.

She also sparked speculation that she’s split with the other one from Good Charlotte by dribbling on about hot guys this side of the pond: “I love guys with English accents. I have met a really cute English guy, but it’s early days.”

Hang on, hang on a minute, America, I thought we had an agreement. You wouldn’t let Paris back over if we kept Miley Cyrus … oh. Sorry about that. [Photo: Splash News]

Bond Girl Eva Green Says She’s Hotter Than Charlize

French actress Eva Green, who starred as Vesper Lynd in the last Bond film Casino Royale, has got sultry looks and a rocking model figure. And doesn’t she know it. Speaking to You magazine about how she copes with her boyfriend, New Zealand Marton Csokas doing sex scenes, she explained why it’s not a problem – even when he’s getting hot with Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux.

“He did [a love scene] himself with Charlize Theron but it didn’t worry me because I’m better looking than she is.”

O-kay. Well, that’s one way of dealing with jealousy. But is she really fitter than Charlize? In Monster, no problem. Elsewhere…well, we’ll leave it up to you to make that choice.
