Celebrity MySpace Sleuths


confirmed.jpgForget solicitation and child pornography, the biggest problem with Myspace is that it’s cluttered with fake celebrity pages. How am I supposed to know what’s Nicole Richie’s real myspace page with all those cheap imitations out there? I mean I know this and this aren’t real, but this one and this one may be. But how can I be sure? Well now there’s a way: Confirmed Celebs Only . This myspace page was created to help celebrities and their stalkers eliminate cheap imitations.

The page features pictures of celebs like Adrianne Curry, Stephen Coletti and various porn stars holding signs that bare their real myspace addresses. You can also check for real celebrity myspace pages added to their friends space. And if you have a celebrity myspace page that’s questionable, you can submit it to be checked for authenticity, here. I know there have been some great inventions in the past 100 years, but seriously this is up there with sliced bread and body shots.

EXCLUSIVE: BWE Interviews K-Fed For Chump Change!


Today we hit the streets to attend a Times Square promo event for Virgin Mobile, who is trying to get the message out about the power of the penny, and the importance of saving it from irrelevancy – with the help of Kevin Federline! K-Fed gave a moving speech and answered some hard-hitting one-on-one questions with yours truly, including an “explanation” of why he wasn’t feeling so charitable last weekend in Miami. Virgin CEO Richard Branson didn’t make it to the event due to “plane troubles”, which is ironic since he OWNS an airline. But Kevin more than made up for his absence!

After you watch, if you’ve ever had something you always wanted to say to Kevs, but previously had no way of getting in touch, he invited everyone to send a text message to his “personal” cell phone number at 310-876-4210.

SIZZLER: The Coreys Make TV Comeback, Strong Argument for Tivo


coreys.jpgI’m going to throw some movie titles out there and I want you to tell me what they all have in common: License To Drive, Dream a Little Dream, The Lost Boys, Dream a Little Dream 2, Last Resort. Give up? They all have great buddy chemistry. Oh and 2 Coreys. It looks like some visionary producers finally remembered the sparks that Corey Haim and Corey Feldman generate on screen, because the two are signed to create a new comedy series called,
The Coreys. The show centers on fictional versions of the real life 80’s heroes and follows bachelor Haim as he “shakes things up” for married, conservative Feldman. I know what you’re thinking: The last great Corey project I watched late one night on Skinemax was Blown Away also starring Nicole Eggert. How will anything top that? Well rest assured Corey fans, this show’s going to top everything this odd couple have ever done together. Except of course, the mountains and mountains of blow.

Nelly Furtado Brainwashed By Deranged Cult!


Nelly_Furtado.jpgIf you’re way into hip-hop, but not that into it. And if you love the musical stylings and tight abs of The Black Eye Peas’ Fergie, then you simply have to check out this brand, new artist who came from no where called Nelly Furtado. Okay, if you still remember Nelly’s last album, which was more in the free-spirited, overly produced, style of Natalie Imbruglia than the hip-hop lite sounds of the Black Eyed Peas, you’re probably wondering why she changed her tune on her latest album. Well it wasn’t record execs and image consultants if that’s what you’re thinking.

In fact, in the latest issue of Blender Magazine, Furtado explains the real reason: “I went through a feminist phase and read a lot of philosophical stuff. Some of the male bashing brainwashed me for a bit so I stopped. I love men!” Ohhhh, she was like a bird a couple of years ago because she was brainwashed by a deranged, cannibalistic cult called THE FEMINISTS! Of course! Thank god she made it out alive and is now free to sing about getting it on with strangers. You go girl.

SIZZLER: Prince & Diddy & Linds & Paris


butterlohan.jpgLast weekend during Prince’s secret impromptu show at NYC club Butter, Lindsay Lohan left her table to go to the bathroom and fight the latest battle against Paris Hilton in their endlessly pointless War of the Whores. We’ve previously compared today’s starlet feuds with the infamous East Coast/West Coast hip-hop feuds of the 90’s, but these two worlds, having shared only metaphorical similarities, came colliding together when Puff Daddy decided to take Lohan’s booth in the crowded club since she seemed too busy to be using it. But when Lohan had finally finished freshening up after her nightly “You’re a slut-whore-bitch!” tirade against Paris and returned to her table to continue partying too much, she was displeased to discover that Diddy and posse had commandeered her spot, which she apparently pointed out to the hip-hop mogul. What happened next depends on who you ask. According to R & M, Lohan simply made a joke that Diddy failed to recognize the humor in, then got tossed out. But Page Six reports that LiLo was being loud and obnoxious, and had to be forcibly removed from the club by some of Diddy’s bodyguards.

We may never know what really happened during those tense moments, but one thing is for sure: a Mean Girl is no match for a Bad Boy.

It’s June 21st; What’s up?


cheyenne.jpgTonight is an interesting one to say the least. On one channel you have the premiere of the Regis Philbin hosted America’s Got Talent, and on another you have So You Think You Can Dance?… proving that we don’t have nearly as much talent as we think.

Speaking of talent, tonight on MTV the super-talented LC leads us walks us through her internship at Teen Vogue on The Hills and the even more talented Cheyenne walks us through whatever it is she does on the hit MTV show Cheyenne. I haven’t brought myself to actually watch her show yet… I think it’s probably best if I wait until she turns 18.

Also on tonight: new episodes of Mindfreak, Inked, and Dog Bites Man, plus a whole lot more. What are YOU watching? Vote now!
