Flavor Flav was arrested in Las Vegas early this morning and changed with assault with a deadly weapon. Geez, and we thought confusing Miley Cyrus with Gwen Stefani was bad. According to reports on TMZ, the 53-year old former rapper and reality star was involved in vicious argument with a teenager in his Nevada home. The teenager’s fiancee was also present, and as tempers flared she called the police around 3 AM. Details are sparse at the moment, but Flav apparently beat one of the two, and threatened the other with a knife. He was arrested on the scene for battery and felony assault with a deadly weapon, and is currently being held on $23,000 bail. It’s also unknown what Flavor Flav’s relationship is to the teenagers, if any.
This is not Flavor Flav’s first brush with assault. In 1991 he was charged with assaulting his girlfriend Karen Ross, and served 30 days in jail as a result. Two years later he was charged with attempted murder for firing shots at his neighbor. Most of his violent offenses seemed to wind down in the late nineties after he went to rehab for crack cocaine, but that didn’t stop his run-ins with the law. He’s received a number of parking and driving offenses, resulting in his arrest in May of last year. We’ll bring you more updates on this bust as soon as we hear!
We’re starting to get the impression that Hulk Hogan’s sex tape partner Heather Clem had a pretty open marriage with her husband, DJ Bubba The Love Sponge. Like, really open. Open enough to drive a couple semi-trucks through. If you thought it was pretty weird to let your best friend sleep with your wife, brace yourself because that was just the the tip of the sexual iceberg. According to RadarOnline, The Hulk was just one of many famous faces who made a sex tape with Mrs. The Love Sponge.
“Bubba regularly brought his wife’s sex tapes into work at the radio station and would show them to the staff,” says an insider at Bubba’s office. “When the Hulk tape was leaked none of his staff were surprised because they’d all seen it already! And that wasn’t the only tape they saw with Heather having sex with a celebrity.” The source went on to claim that she got into bed while the camera’s rolled with at least two other big names. “It was just sort of a regular thing when it came to Heather and Bubba. They were known for taping Heather’s sexscapades and it just so happened to involve famous people sometimes.”
Oh, we have so many feels! Just days after Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were peeped together in L.A. in what we’d all like to imagine was a snuggle-filled reunion, TMZ now reports that Kristen is moving in…to her own place in Los Feliz. Twist! Stewart allegedly purchased the home for $2.2 million, which we can only assume means she won’t be moving back in with Rob. Even more interesting, however, is the location of KStew’s new pad: a mere 1.5. miles from RPatz’s place. So we have to ask…whaaaa?
The way TMZ described the house (4 bedrooms, 5 baths, a pool, etc), it certainly didn’t sound like an apartment Kristen could just cool her heels in until she and Rob mended their relationship. Then we saw photos of the alleged home over at Us Weekly and knew it was a legit, for real, adult pad. On one hand, maybe this is the best way for them to get back together: by each having their own space. Alternately, this is the ultimate death knell for their relationship. Just kidding! We hope! It’s not as clear cut as if Rob and Kristen just started shacking up again, but we’ll take it. Also…let’s be honest. That new pool of hers looks sick.
People have made such a big deal about Honey Boo Boo‘s Mama June Shannon lately. Between being played by Bobby Moynihanwearing a prosthetic double chin on SNL and everyone throwing up on the Internet over her now infamous sketti recipe, you would think Mama is the most horrifying matriarch since Mommy Dearest. Or Psycho. But despite the fact that she farts almost nonstop on TV, every interview with Alana Thompson‘s (a.k.a. Honey Boo Boo)’s mom suggests that it is in fact her levelheaded nature and ambivalence to fame that might just make her the best parent on reality TV, if not the best person. Take June’s interview on Jimmy Kimmel last night. Listen to what she actually says:
Vulture released it’s 25 Most Devoted Fan Bases list today, and you know we immediately clicked through to make sure they had Twihards on there. Of course they did, as well as Mad Men, Harry Potter and a host of other pop culture entities that turn fans into drooling, trembling puddles of love. We couldn’t help but notice that there were some obvious exclusions however, so we went ahead and hyped the fan bases who we think are more than rabid enough to make the list.
“My mouth is the Don King of my penis,” John Mayeronce wrote on Twitter. We don’t totally know what it means, but it sounds vulgar and gives our brain the bad touch. And that, dear friends, is the general sensation we get when reading John Mayer quotes! They’re so confounding, we bet they even make Charlie Sheen scratch his head in bewilderment. Whether he’s describing his past sexual conquests, what it means to be a man, or even what it is that makes him so damn popular, Johnny has found ways of pissing people off left and right with his loose lips. Everyone remembers his infamous 2010 Rolling Stone profile, but the guitar hero has had a way with words much longer than that. He has since apologized for “those dumb interviews,”…but not for breaking Taylor Swift’s heart. John turns 35 years old today, and he’s been reasonably well behaved lately. With age comes wisdom, ehh? Or maybe he’s just hired a publicist. But in honor of his big day, let’s look back at a few of our personal favorite John Mayer quotes. Enjoy!
OK, so it looks like Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are very slowly and casually easing themselves and the world back into the idea of their reunion (if they ever really split in the first place). The day after they were spotted out together with friends at Ye Rustic Inn in Los Feliz (a favorite hangout of our own Kate Spencer, who is devastated that she missed this!), and two days after they reportedly hung out at Chateau Marmont, the Twilight stars were spotted together again … in broad daylight!
TMZ has the photos of Rob, in a baseball cap and well-worn Germs henley, and Kristen in her signature short cutoffs, baseball cap and white tank, leaving a restaurant with friends in the afternoon. They aren’t seen holding hands or anything (which, who holds hands as you’re leaving a restaurant with friends? That just sounds logistically difficult), but the fact that they’re both wearing the kind of outfits we’re used to seeing them wear on a cazh day out together is very comforting, don’t you think?

When we first saw Scarlett Johansson‘s “Goth Bonnie Raitt” makeover inW Magazine, it was like we were struck with a sweet, sexy guitar riff. Everyone knows that only the best women have grey streaks in their hair! Raitt, Rogue from the X-Men, uh, Cruella de Vil: all women we want to look like, all women we want to be. ScarJo joined Mia Wasikowska, Rooney Mara and Keira Knightley in getting a sick makeover for the mag, but only one of them looks like a hotter Dr. Blight from Captain Planet. Needless to say, we are into it. If only anyone had actually looked like that in the nineties!
As it turns out, ScarJo is mixing it up in more areas than her scalp. According to People Magazine, the Hitchcock actress has just broken up with her boyfriend of a little under year Nate Naylor. “She broke up with him last week,” a source claims. “He’s pretty upset but the writing was on the wall. A lot of people were surprised it lasted this long.” Somewhere Ryan Reynolds holds his new issues of People and W Magazine, his lower lip trembling with what might have been.
We’ve always had a difficult time pinpointing exactly what it is we love about Taylor Swift. Is it her voice? Her willingness to pour her heart out in her songs? Her ability to do perfect cat-eye makeup? Leave it to Kennedy matriarch Ethel Kennedy to sum it up in a way none of us could: “She’s just sensational inside and out,” Kennedy said of grandson Conor‘s girlfriend, speaking to CapeCast at the Kennedy Golf Tournament. “She’s very kind, and you know what she really is? She’s game. She had never sailed before; she sailed. … She played anything that everyone else was doing, and she was good at it and no fuss. And I’m happy that we’ll be neighbors.” (Man, when I first met my husband’s grandmother, all she could do was scold me for getting a tattoo!)
This great quote also reminded us of something we’d forgotten while all the focus was on Taylor and Conor: The singer actually met his grandma and aunt Rory Kennedy first. Filmmaker Rory and her mother spoke to Celebs.com about their connection to Taylor back in January, when they were photographed together at the Sundance premiere of Rory’s doc Ethel. “[Taylor] really took the initiative to reach out to meet my mother because she’d read about her and was a fan and admired her. … There’s a mutual admiration society between my mother and Taylor Swift.” Read more…
It turns out that perfect skin, razor-sharp cheekbones and an amazing wardrobe does not guarantee that you will find a boyfriend. But…but…but that’s what all the magazines have been saying! What are we going to spend our money on now? We also would have though a burgeoning film career would help us suss out a significant other, but, as Ashley Greene points out, being a busy actress does not a healthy relationship make. “I’m always here and there – everyone in my industry is,” the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 actress admits toMarie Claire. “[A]nd that’s why a lot of relationships are fleeting.”
Defying our understanding of reality, Ashley is only the second famous lady to complain about her love life today; Rihanna shared a similar plight in her Vogue interview just this morning. Muses Greene, “I’ve gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realize is hard on friends and kind of selfish. You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie. It’s not like you’re going to fly out and see them, because it’s not serious enough for that.” Okay, but isn’t the entire point of being rich and famous that you can do insane things like fly all over the world and buy a house next to your boyfriend’s grandma? Taylor Swift, you know what we’re talking about!
