Ed Westwick Threatens Public Sex To Fight Gay Rumors

Watch out, Jessica Szohr! Ed Westwick might nail you in public just to prove he’s straight. The Gossip Girl actor gave his most fevered dismissal yet of the rumors surrounding him and bff co-star Chace Crawford in the new Rolling Stone.

[It's] f—ing ridiculous! “It’s funny because I love this f—ing dude dearly. I would die for this f—ing dude. He’s my brother. But, by God, we are so into our women it’s ridiculous. But what are you going to do about it? Get pissed off and stay home and cry about it?…I made out with a girl in public. F— it, I’ll have sex in public. That one’s still on the list. Still haven’t ticked that one off. Well I have, but they haven’t seen me. Not George Michael public.

Rather than squelching the gossip, this quote is causing the gaydars at Videogum “to burst into flame.” Seriously, if you’re trying to get people to stop talking about you and your Chelsea roommate:

  • Don’t say “we are so into our women it’s ridiculous.”
  • Don’t say f— when describing how much you love him.
  • Don’t reference George Michael.
  • When posing for photos, try not to look like Savage Garden.

Check out the gallery for a closer look at Crawford and Westwick’s bromance.

Katie Holmes Rumored To Be Pregnant

Is Katie Holmes pregnant again? That’s what OK! magazine is putting out there this week, claiming the actress and husband Tom Cruise is “deliriously happy that Suri will be a big sister. They’ve always planned on expanding their family. They’re over the moon.” And totally predictably, their story’s been shot down by her rep, who says, “There’s no truth to that story.”

As usual with celebrity sperminations, there’s no telling what the truth is until time passes. It’s the official reaction to deny a pregnancy until past the 12-week stage (like Ashlee Simpson), but then again, tabloids have been known to get it very wrong indeed. And as Katie was spotted out late last night eating sushi with Victoria Beckham, we’re going to file this one under “uh­-huh” until we see any extra poundage around her teeny-tiny middle.

Birth Dating: Who’s Older? Holly Hunter Or Spike Lee?

Joel Coen went to the Tisch School Of The Arts with Spike Lee in the late ’70s. In the early ’80s, Coen lived in a house in LA with brother Ethan, Sam Raimi, Frances McDormand and Holly Hunter, who’d later star in the Coen Brothers’ film Raising Arizona. Both Hunter and Lee were born on March 20th. Which one is older?

Fred Durst Still Talking About Screwing Britney Spears

Things are looking good for Fred Durst these days. He’s directed two movies (The Longshots, starring Ice Cube, and The Education Of Charlie Banks, out next Friday) and the original line-up of his chart-topping band, Limp Bizkit, has reunited. So why the hell is he still talking about shtupping Britney Spears over five years ago?

“It just became a fiasco of madness,” Durst recently reminisced to MTV News about their alleged affair, which she denied at the time (while he rapped “very first night made the Limp dog hit it” to Howard Stern). “I always stay true to my heart and true to everything I did and my intentions, and I am in no way a liar.”

I look back on it as very interesting [in terms of] how things have been sort of unraveling for her since. It is what it is. I can sleep at night knowing I made decisions that I wanted to make. I’m a supporter [of Britney]. I was then, I guess I am now…it was taboo for a guy like me to be associated with a gal like her.

Frankly, if a woman who proudly romanced Kevin Federline and Adnan Ghalib refused to acknowledge we ever slept with her, we wouldn’t push the subject. Let it go, Fred.

The Naked Pregnant Women Vs Jamie Oliver

We’ve got to take our hats off to PETA, because if anything, they know how to set up a good PR stunt. On the eve of Mothers’ Day (in the UK, it’s this Sunday), a pair of naked, pregnant vegetarians posed in cages outside Jamie Oliver‘s Fifteen restaurant. On all fours in a cage, they were ostensibly protesting about Jamie’s promotion of British pork. But instead we found ourselves staring at the tattooed ladies bizarre inkings and wondering where the other woman got her horrible knickers from. Anyway — happy mothers’ day, UK mums! We won’t put this on the front of your cards. [Photo: Splash News Online]

The Most Miserable Couple In The World Might Split

Oh noes! Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake apparently always look devastated for a reason – their love affair has soured and they’re ready to call it quits. Funny, weren’t we just reporting that they’re like, totally getting married this summer? Ah, such is the beast known as celebu-love, we guess. The pair are still living together and walking around arm-in-arm, but gossipy friends insist there’s trouble a-brewin’.

“Things are not going as smoothly as [Biel and Timberlake] would want people to think they are,” says one source. Others apparently say that Biel is “controlling,” which is driving Mr. Dick In A Box nuts. But maybe she’ll use that personality flaw to help keep her relationship in tact. Says a pal, “She will do anything to keep Justin. She really loves him very much.”  [Photo: FilmMagic]

Flashback Lunch: There Will Be Rudd

From 1995′s Clueless to I Love You, Man, out this Friday, Paul Rudd has been one of the cutest actors in Hollywood. Whether clean shaven or bushy-bearded, he’s a funny, charming guy. So it took some effort to find a look that didn’t flatter and—well, let’s just say we’re glad he never got a role on Deadwood. This stylized goatee from 1999 might even be worse than the soul patch he wore to the Object Of My Affection premiere a year earlier. Judge for yourself in the gallery below.

Aubrey O’Day To Show More Skin For Second Playboy Appearance

Aubrey O’Day has no regrets about posing nude for Playboy. Not only does she have no regrets, she wants to do it again and get even more naked this time.

“I absolutely want to do it again, any day. I’ve been asked to actually. I only took a little bit off so I’ll be back,” the former Danity Kane crooner said.

Aubrey said she is not phased by the creepy attention she got after putting her privates on display on the pages of a glossy magazine for all to see.

“I get sent a lot of creepy pictures like of guys licking the pages,” she said.

The fabulous maybe-lesbian also feels that her firing from Danity Kane is just representative of what is going on in the economy. “A lot of people last year were fired, we are in a recession. We are all going through hard times. I’m just a public representative for being fired in 2008 and moving on in 2009.”

Yes, that’s exactly how it went down. Diddy was just sitting at his desk going over his numbers and kindly told Aubrey, “I’m sorry, Aubrey, but you know the state the economy is in right now…” [Source: PopTarts; Photo: Getty Images]

Heidi Montag Eats It

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt may have a busy life full of photo ops, recording sessions and photo ops, so it’s great they still find time to go on romantic photo ops and enjoy a healthy meal. The Hills lovers were spotted at the Lakers game last night, where Heidi enjoyed a hot dog, chicken fingers and a caramel apple. Or at least posed with them.

Barack Obama Sorry For Special Olympics Joke

Bowling seemed like such a safe topic amid tense subjects like AIG bonuses and the struggling economy, until President Barack Obama joked to Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” that his poor bowling skills are “like the Special Olympics or something.”

On his way back to Air Force One, Obama called Chairman of the Special Olympics Tim Shriver and said he was sorry, before the interview even aired.

“He thinks the Special Olympics are a wonderful program that gives an opportunity to shine to people with disabilities from around the world,” Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton said.

Shriver issued a statement regarding the comment and said, “Words hurt and words matter. Words can cause pain and result in stereotypes that are unfair and damaging to people with intellectual disabilities. And using Special Olympics in a negative or derogatory context can be a humiliating put-down to people with special needs.”

The organization called for this to be seen as “a teachable moment for our country” and asked “young people, parents and leaders from all walks of life to engage in conversation and help dispel negative caricatures about people with intellectual disabilities. We believe that it s only through open conversation and dialogue about how stereotypes can cause pain that we can begin to work together to create communities of acceptance and inclusion for all.” [Source: FoxNews.com; Photo: Getty Images]
