Is there really a romance brewing between Chelsea Handler and 50 cent? No go, is what Chelsea is saying. She clarified over Twitter, writing, “Everyone, calm down. I met with mr. Cent about a potential project. There’s nothing to report yet, ill let you know if there is.”
The latter half of that sentence intrigues us. Because it’s not a flat out denial. The fact that she said “…yet” and “ill [sic] let you know if there is’ indicated that there’s a door left open just a tad. And considering 50′s tweeting up a storm about her, it’s likely that he wants to go in swingin’. So halfway-deny all you want Chelsea. Our spidey-sense is tingling! We’re onto you!

Kanye West seemed to forget his mask when he showed up at the Grazia Masquerade Ball in Paris on Tuesday. But no one cared because he brought Victoria’s Secret angel Selita Ebanks, providing yet another example of why it’s awesome to date a super model.
Did we say “date”? Our mistake. Because according to Selita, the fashionista and fashionisto (?) are just friends. This, despite the fact that they’re clearly holding hands in the linked-finger romantic manner, and have been spotted looking friendly at a number of events, including the US Open last month. Selita even starred in Kayne’s short film Runaway. And Kanye mentioned her in his new song “Christian Dior Denim Flow,” for crying out loud! Sounds like the Robsten defense to us.
To be fair, Kanye has been making the rounds since giving Amber Rose the boot this spring. He’s hit the town with the likes of Kim Kardashian and Shay the UK Bombshell, but the 34-year old rapper insists that he’s on the hunt for a Mrs. Taylor-Swift‘s-Worst-Nightmare. For what it’s worth, our vote goes to Selita.

According to Rihanna, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga must be texted prior to every red carpet event. Why? So they don’t end wearing the same neon wack-a-doo frock as their friends! Says Rihanna, “My worst nightmare would be a clash on the red carpet – so we all text each other before to make sure.” But the clash of Rihanna’s hair and everything else on the planet, that one’s okay?
“We’re all kind of fearless with fashion. So Katy and I speak all the time about what we’re going to wear. And Gaga,” Rihanna explained. AND GAGA? No offense, Rihanna, but Gaga would look at your text, delete it and then get lowered by her team of stylists into a 12-foot-tall wedding dress made out of astronaut ice cream. You aren’t even playing the same game as her; there’s no need to check on the competition.
But Katy Perry? That’s understandable. Rihanna recalls, “One time we were going to the Met Ball, and Katy phoned me to check. We were like Oh My God, we were both going in this dress by Dolce and Gabbana with Marilyn Monroe’s face all over it. She was like, ‘You can’t. I’ve had my nails done in mink and it matches the dress. I thought, seeing as she’d gone to all that effort, I’d let her wear it.” Aw! Well, that was sweet of Rihanna. Knowing her, she’ll just wear her copy of the dress to walk her dog, or clean the bathtub. [Photos: Getty Images/ Splash News Online]
Last night I had a disagreement with a friend wherein I was positive that Dan Aykroyd was now a tequila salesman. My friend insisted that he was a vodka salesman. After a cursory Internet search, it turns out my friend was right. Mea culpa, Dan Akyroyd. I should have known. Why this argument? Because for Halloween I am going to be Indiana Jones, but, wait for it, Indiana Jones in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. And Dan Akyroyd sells his vodka in bottles that are in the shape of skulls. Because it’s called Crystal Head Vodka. Hence, I have my prop (friend who was right about the vodka’s idea). If you don’t have a Halloween costume, and you are of age to buy such a beverage, you can use it. Just don’t show up at the same party as me. That would be the WORST. Can you IMAGINE??
Vanity Fair interviewed Akyroyd about several things, including vodka, but most importantly, about Ghostbusters 3. Here is an excerpt from the interview:
Speaking of your film career, last month in GQ Bill Murray said something that wasn’t so nice about Ghostbusters 3.
He was talking about the writers from Year One, and I think he was reacting to the box-office success and the general public view of the film, which in my view was a very serviceable comedy, and in the end I think they’ll make their money back. I think he was concerned that the writing on Ghostbusters 3 by these guys would not be up to standard, but I can tell you firsthand, I’m working on the script now and those two—Stupnitsky and Eisenberg, [writer-producers of The Office]—wrote Bill the comic role of a lifetime, and the new Ghostbusters and the old are all well represented in it…we have a strong first draft that Harold [Ramis] and I will take back, and I’m very excited about working on it.
Bill and Ted 3. Heathers 2. True Lies 2. Really?
Look, Hollywood is in love with any kind of nostalgia that can prove itself to be commercial. But it has to evolve. Now [in Ghostbusters 3] my character’s eyesight is shot, I got a bad knee, a bad hip—I can’t drive that caddy anymore or lift that Psychotron Accelerator anymore, it’s too heavy. We need young legs, new minds—new Ghostbusters; so I’m in essence passing the torch to the new regime, and you know what? That’s totally okay with me.
Just the words “Psychotron Accelerator” give me chills. So excited.
We’re convinced that 99% of things we say and think in our daily life are ripped off from a Mike Myers character, whether it’s Wayne, Austin Powers, or Charlie from So I Married An Axe Murderer. We can’t even listen to “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” without singing it in a Scottish accent, that’s how big of an influence Myers was on us growing up. So it’s not without a little bit of regret that we say this but, Mike, please stop making crappy movies. And please, please reconsider the Warner Brothers cartoon movie you’ve just signed on for where you plan to voice Pepe Le Pew, the rapey-est cartoon skunk there ever was.
We tolerated A View From The Top, cringed when we heard about The Cat In The Hat and downright turned on you after The Love Guru, so if this pattern is any indicator, the Pepe Le Pew movie is going to cause a revolt amongst otherwise sane, sensible people. That’s how bad we think it will be. Sometimes movies require some convincing when you hear their premise, like “Really? A dream within a dream within a dream where they fight in the snow within another dream? I don’t know, Inception!” or “An actual movie that’s actually about Facebook?” and we’re willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. But from the outset we can just tell that Mike Myers doing a French accent, wearing a skunk outfit and trying to molest fur coats and stray cats is going to be terrible. The only way we could find this forgivable is if it’s just part of Mike’s plan to become rich enough to join the Pentavirate, that secret society of the five wealthiest people in the world, taking the coveted Colonel Sanders spot.

I follow Bristol Palin’s acting career fairly avidly. So it it my duty to report that she will appear in a music video for Alaskan band Static Cycle. Click on the link for a sneak peek. I would embed it, but it’s not working. And, surprise, I am not a technical genius. But then come back and discuss!
So here’s the link: Bristol Palin Music Video Sneak Peek
And here’s a picture of Bristol from the shoot:
OK, you’re back?
Yessssssssss. I cannot WAIT for this to drop. Not least of all because it appears that this video contains my second favorite camera shot of all time: Helicopter shot circling around a man with arms outstretched in a vast outdoor space.
My favorite camera shot, in case you’re wondering, is a good old dog reaction shot.
So, OK. The rose symbolizes Alaska and purity. Bristol, as Mother Nature (that works on two levels, because she’s also a mother herself), is in charge of protecting and caressing the glass case. Oh, wait. Is it an allusion to the rose in Beauty and the Beast? OK, so Bristol is the Beast? And needs to keep the rose intact or else she’ll stay a beast forever? Who is Belle? Static Cycle? Got it. Good. But where the eff is Mrs. Potts?

In her never-ending quest to make us feel so bad for her entire family, now Sarah Palin claims Dancing With The Stars wanted husband Todd, not Bristol as a contestant this season. Ouch, Mom! Says Palin, “They wanted Todd to be on the show. I think that would have been cool to see, too. But here Bristol is, out of her comfort zone, doing something all new.” The Palins! They’re just like us, if we were an insane family of attention-whores. Seriously though, this has to burn Bristol. It’s like finding our your prom date asked your father first, then only asked you because your dad said no. And then you said yes because you have no better options!
But taking her dad’s sloppy seconds wasn’t Bristol’s primary concern about going on DTWS. She was mainly worried about, you know, being a terrible dancer. Says Mama Griz, “In fact, when Bristol said, ‘I don’t know how to dance,’ I told her, just think of it as learning some basketball plays.” Ah yes, basketball: a graceful ballet of 6’8″ athletes thundering down the court to the sound of their own ACLs tearing. That advice probably explains Bristol’s sub-par performance this week, though we bet Todd would have burned up that floor like the beautiful man-demon he is. Ah well, maybe next seasonÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
I was going back through my old 80s baseball cards yesterday, having just cured cancer, and I came across one that looked awfully familiar – on his 1987 Topps card, Oakland A’s infielder Carney Lansford looks just a bit like Bryan Cranston’s Walter White character on Breaking Bad:
The similarities don’t end there — did you know that Lansford was from the southwest, taught high school science, AND dealt crystal meth? None of those things are true. But according to his baseball card, he’s a “Direct descendant of 16th Century British Admiral Sir Francis Drake.” And according to Wikipedia, that’s not true either.
I’m still sticking to my story — Breaking Bad was definitely based on this guy. Don’t believe me? Click after the jump:
Why is Toni Braxton in debt again? This is clearly not a case of once bitten, twice shy for her because she’s been in a mess financially for years now. This round has her in the red for an amount that could be anything from $10 million to $50 million. You just read that correctly.
But let’s take a look at why and who she owes so much money. The list of creditors waiting for the cash that’ll never come are The Four Seasons, Tiffany’s, The Westin Hotel, Flamingo Las Vegas and Neiman Marcus, to name just a few. Toni, where did you think the money-you-don’t-haveÃ‚Â was coming from?
Did she really think a swipe of a credit card was it? That bills would magically appear and Toni could walk out dripping in new jewels into fancy hotel suites? It’s weird that she doesn’t know how this money stuff works, considering that she already filed for bankruptcy back in 1998. And if that wasn’t enough of a red flag, she was hit up by the IRS this year for a lien worth $396k. It’s hard to sympathize when the person in question keeps making the same mistake over and over again. Learn your lesson, Toni!
