Heads up, Hallmark, it’s Crazy Celebrity Arrest week starring Taylor Swift! But don’t worry Team T-Swizzle, it’s not in the way you think. In addition to her full schedule of buying houses and dropping singles, Taylor somehow managed to cause Crocs footwear founder George Boedecker to get a DUI…without even being in the same state! At least that’s what the shoe baron drunkenly claimed. In a tale as ridiculous as Crocs themselves, the 51 year old Boedecker was discovered passed out at the wheel of his Porsche in Boulder, Colorado. According to TheSmokingGun.com, police arrived to find him being treated by EMTs, who diagnosed Boedecker as being “drunk as crap.” It’s unclear exactly why he drank so much, but then again if we invented the ugliest shoe known to human-kind we’d probably drink to forget, too.
When questioned by police, he insisted that he was merely napping and that his “girlfriend” was driving the car. Who was this girlfriend, you ask? “A really f—ing famous [singer],” he told authorities, before coyly asking if they had ever heard of Taylor Swift. When cops asked where this non-present girlfriend was at the moment, Boedecker claimed that she had gone back to Nashville after an argument and that she was “batsh– crazy.” It seems like someone’s definitely batsh– crazy in this story, and it doesn’t seem like it’s Taylor. But the best part of the whole incident? George was reportedly wearing flip-flops, which just proves that no one likes Crocs.
Incredibly, this may not be the most insane celebrity arrest of the day. MMA fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller was found sleeping naked on a couch in an Orange County-area church this morning. The pastor saw signs of a break-in at the Mission Viejo’s Mission Hills Church and phoned the authorizes, who discovered the first floor in complete disarray with walls spray painted and books strewn across the ground. It was mayhem, in every sense of the word.
Some might be surprised that Sylvester Stallone is making the rounds to promote his new movie, The Expendables 2, just a month after son Sage Stallone died of yet-undetermined cause. But the actor spoke on Good Morning America this morning and explained why he was back at work.
“I think it’s important to get back and start reliving your life. Otherwise, you can go into a spiral,” he said, appearing on the show with co-stars Jean-Claude Van Damme, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren.
It was his first interview since Sage Stallone, 36, was found dead in his apartment on July 13. Read more…
We should probably feel bad about the fact that we feared Robert Pattinson would somehow manage to avoid all questions about his personal life and only plug Cosmopolis when he appeared on The Daily Show tonight. But hallelujah! About 90 percent of the interview was personal. Or, was it?
“Obviously, uh, uh, what have you been up to?” Jon Stewart opened the interview. And as Rob complained that that the host had ruined his setup joke, Stewart proceeded to bring out two pints of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. It was an obvious nod to the fact that Rob was going through a breakup. “We’re just two gals talking,” Stewart said.
But then, it turned out, “talking” equalled a lot of talk about the ice cream melting in front of them. Or were there subtle references to the Kristen Stewart-size elephant in the room? It’s hard to tell.
“What are we doing here? Are you all right? Is everything OK? I’m worried about you, and you’re all right,” Stewart asked, sounding a little more like a grandma than an interviewer.
“I just don’t even know how to approach this now,” Rob answered, which out of context, sounds like he’s actually referring to how to approach questions about his love life. Read more…
Hot on the heels of 50 Cent referring to her as “trash” in XXL Magazine, Kim Kardashian can start her week out right by reading about how Jeremy Renner hates her family. As part of an interview with Britain’s The Guardian, Jeremy griped that the Kardashians are “ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name,” as well as “stupid, stupid people.” Tell us how you really feel, Jeremy! Actually…please don’t. If this is what he said off the cuff, his actual opinion about the Kardashians is probably downright devastating.
Of course, the Bourne Legacy star isn’t the first celebrity to rag on Kim’s family. Jon Hamm, Jonah Hill, us: you name him or her, they’ve probably trash-talked the Kardashians at some point or another. Eventually celebs will have to come out and declare their love for the Kardashians, just so we don’t assume they harbor a secret hatred for them. Well, we’ll be the first and declare it now: a part of us deeply, deeply loves Kim’s bizarre family. The other part? Well, let’s just say it has a lot in common with our “Celebs That Actively Dislike the Kardashians” gallery:
Relationship twist! After hearing that Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy have been sharing milkshakes, holding hands and/or enjoying picnic lunches since July, we’re kind of stunned to hear that Taylor purchased a house in Hyannis, Massachusetts last week, a house that happens to be extremely close to Conor’s memaw Ethel Kennedy‘s home. “It’s in a beautiful location and right across the street from Conor and the Kennedys,” a relator confirmed to People. “It’s a beautiful home. She got a nice home, paid fair price. The house was on the market for two to four years.” Whoa! On one hand, Taylor is a millionaire and can do whatever the fudge she wants. On the other hand, imagine walking into your grandma’s house and your girlfriend is already there, sipping sun tea and looking at your naked baby pictures. Slightly unnerving, yes?
So that got us thinking: other than the obvious (Taylor is making a play for her 18-year-old boyfriend of a month with a play that is not even in the playbacks yet), there has to be a perfectly reasonable explanation for why Taylor would drop a chunk of change for a house Conor Kennedy can see while he eats breakfast. Such as:
Didn’t this guy write a YA novel about bullying? We didn’t realize it was a How-To. Heyo! Seriously though, 50 Cent was clearly in dire need of attention this week. Yes, even more than usual! Why else would he have insulted both Kim KardashianandSnoop Dogg in the press? “I mean … if that man feel like she’s perfect, then she’s perfect. He could mean it and you’ll end up singing the words to it because he’s Kanye,” Fiddy told XXL Magazine about Yeezy’s lady Kim, adding, “You know how it is? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Ouch! That’s an intense burn, 50 Cent! We guess the man did date Chelsea Handler. Have there been any studies to determine if perfect comedic timing can be sexually transmitted?
If that wasn’t enough material for Fiddy to take to an open mic, he also riffed on Snoop Dogg‘s new Rastafarian moniker Snoop Lion. “I don’t know how his little league team’s parents will feel about his new persona,” he quipped to The Hollywood Reporter. Hmmm, seeing as how Snoop’s persona has been “notorious rap stoner” since day one, we’re not sure if that joke really makes any sense. That being said, the mental image of Snoop coaching a Little League team is complete genius. Okay, we’ll give you that one, Fiddy…and start looking forward to your inevitable Comedy Central special now.
Call us crazy, but we think we just worked out the pattern dictating Lindsay Lohan‘s life: a great thing happens, followed by a terrible thing, followed by another great thing. For example, just this year it’s been: filming Liz & Dick, fender bender, shooting The Canyons, uh…another fender bender. Since we just reported that Lilo will allegedly star in a music video from Lady Gaga’s new album, it stands to reason we would also have to report that Lohan threw a tantrum at a famous person’s birthday party. It’s just statistics at this point!
Now, we’re using the phrase “famous person” loosely as we are referring to Clint Eastwood‘s reality star daughter Francesca Eastwood, but either way sources reported that Lindsay flipped out when she spotted Francesca partying at L.A.’s Bootsy Bellows. “She was yelling ‘I’m a star, she’s a nobody, get her out of here!'” they claimed. “One poor guy came over and tried to calm [Lindsay] down and she acted aggressively. At that point the security told her to leave and it was totally embarrassing. She is acting like some bad ’80s film star, and it is hard to watch because she needs help.” Seeing as how Francesca’s party was almost certainly being filmed, we could potentially get a glimpse of Lindsay’s meltdown on TV. But that would require Lindsay signing a waiver to appear on the show, which she…wouldn’t do? Let’s check the pattern again. It’s the only way to know what to expect!
Here’s a rumor that’s sure to spark some serious debate, but we just wanted to pass it along. Robert Pattinson is reportedly considering a romantic reconciliation with Kristen Stewart. Rumors are surfacing that he is over his anger and seriously considering reuniting with his Twilight co-star and (ex?) girlfriend after she was caught cheating on him with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
“Rob was super angry for the first couple of weeks. Angry at Kristen for ruining what they had, angry at her for the public embarrassment, angry at Rupert,” a friend of Rob’s told Radar Online. “But he’s starting to wind down and really think about what he’s going to do regarding his relationship with Kristen. He goes back and forth.” As usual in times of heartbreak, RPattz has been going to his friends for solace and support. Water for Elephants co-star Reese Witherspoon has let him stay in her Ojai vacation home to plan his next move/listen to “Everybody Hurts” on repeat.
Yet despite all of their help, his friends might be confusing him further by giving him contradicting advice about what to do regarding Kristen. “There’s definitely some friends who think he should just move on from Kristen,” the source continued. “But then there are others who still think Rob and Kristen really have a special connection and want him to give her another chance. He has a lot to think about and hasn’t decided either way right now.” A complicated situation indeed, and that’s without all of the stuff we don’t know about what their relationship was like in private. What do you think he should do? Let us know in the poll below. And hang in there, Rob!
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took approximately six decades to get engaged, so we assumed that we’d be grandparents by the time they finally went ahead with the actual wedding. But color us amazed when we heard that the super couple might be tying the knot this very weekend! Sadly, we were not invited. According to the UK Sun, their French chateau is being prepped for some kind of major blow out, with Brad’s parents even being flown in, as well as the man who designed Angelina’s engagement ring, jeweler to the stars Robert Procop.
The couple’s reps are claiming that the big event is actually a 50th anniversary party for Brad’s mom and dad, but sources in the town just aren’t buying it. “Brad flew in to oversee preparations but they’re all here now,” they told the magazine. “They say it’s for Jane and Bill, but some think this could be it. Even Angelina’s private jeweler is here.” It’s rumored that the ceremony at their Provencal estate will have a miniscule guest list of around 20 or so, including George Clooney. “George and Brad are best pals, there’s no way he’d miss it,” the source continued. “He’s at his house in Italy, but could fly to Marseille in an hour. There’s a real buzz around the estate.” Brad reportedly bought Angie a watch valued at upwards of $350,000 as a wedding gift recently, so maybe they really are making the final steps towards marriage. Or as it’s known in Hollywood circles, the first steps towards divorce.

When Oprah Winfrey comes to interview you (and hey, it may happen) you’ll want to be on your best behavior. So that’s probably why the Big O found Rihanna a bit more demure than expected in her in-depth profile, which airs as part of Oprah’s Next Chapter on Sunday the 19th. Riri probably put her stripper humping to a minimum over during the days she was followed by Oprah around her native Barbados, and that’s probably for the best.
“I thought she would have been kind of a bad-ass kind of a rocker hard-edge woman. Nothing could have been farther from the truth,” said the talk-show legend. “She was thoughtful, she was very emotional, she was vulnerable.” Yet Oprah still fell the need to call the singer out on one tiny thing. “You seem to have a liking for the F-word,” she says with a smile. Busted, the singer just laughs.
But it wasn’t all cuss words and bikinis. Rihanna really opened up to O , showing her around the old neighborhood and talking about the pressures of celebrity and her own personal demons. She admitted to being “super-duper afraid of the pedestal that comes from fame,” and that she feels incredibly lonely. We’re excited to see a more revealing look at the seemingly tough-as-nails pop star, even if she wasn’t “badass” enough for Oprah!
