SIZZLER: Diana Ross Gets Some Help From Oprah



Overheard this weekend:

"Diana Ross confiding that her 17-year-old son with the late Norwegian tycoon Arne Naess Jr., Evan Olaf Naess, was applying to nine colleges. ‘So far he’s heard back from two — he got into Arizona and Morehouse. Oprah called Morehouse for him.’"

It’s interesting that he still needs help even though Diana Ross is his mom and his dad was a tycoon. I’d hate to see what his grades must be like, though he must have relaxed when he found out Oprah was helping. I’m pretty sure she could get Scott Stapp into college. Maybe not his first choice, but definitely his safety.

Down The Toilet


There’s a lot of toilet-related news to report today. First and foremost:

Did Kate Moss Do Coke in Nelson Mandela’s House? According to a model booker who used to work with Kate, the sniffly model dragged him into a bathroom to do a line before meeting with Mr. Mandela. Allegedly. Geez… that sounds so unlike Kate. I guess this happened back in the days when she didn’t do it right out in front of the papparazzi. Ahh, the good ol’ days.

Next up: 35 Cities, 35 Toilet Seats. The Smoking Gun has posted the hotel requirements of demanding diva Mary J. Blige. One of the more… unique… demands: "Must be fully carpeted, clean and have private toilet (with new toilet seat)." No more drama, my ass.

And since all good things come in 3’s, how about we finish up with this story: Australia plans on strengthening their toilet seats because people are getting fatter. I thnk this is great… though I’m a little upset that Australia beat us to it. Come on. We’re supposed to be #1. Not #2.

Okay, that’s it for the potty humor.

While You Were Debating Whether Pimp is the New Gay



  • Check out creepy paparazzi footage of stars going to last night’s "hottest" after party. How hot was it? let’s just say both Cuba Gooding Jr. and Topher Grace were both there at the same time!
  • Britney Spears confesses that she’s pregnant again…. to a ‘source’ at her local spa. If that’s good enough for Star Magazine, it’s good enough for me.
  • Jake Gyllenhaal and Keira Knightly were flirting all night long. See that–losers really can be winners (but only if you’re really a winner)
  • On second thought, now that she’s not with Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston looks rather dowdy.
  • It’s not easy to explain a lesbian kiss with a teenage pop star to your preteen daughter. Best just to tell her it was a dream. 
  • Brad Pitt was considering playing gay in next movie. After last night, we recommend he consider playing ‘pimp’.
  • Alyssa Milano and Carmen Electra are the real winners of last night’s Oscars. They’ve overcome opressive stereotypes and have made it… to the US Weekly Oscar Party.

Lindsay Lohan: Come Back to Your Journal



On October 15, 2003, Lindsay Lohan wrote in her online journal:

hey guys, i’m soooo sooo sorry i haven’t written in a while!! I have been working non-stop, i’m in Toronto, Canada right now filming a movie called Mean Girls(comes out next summer), and i just wrapped on Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (due to come out around February.)  I am going home to NY for 2 days for some photo shoots, then i’m back here for a week, then off to LA for 3 days, and then back again…lol- I miss my family so much, so i’m so excited to see them on Thursday.  But anyway, i just wanted to check in, i’ll try and write more.. xx LL

And then, despite her promise to write again Lindsay turned her back on journal writing, seemingly forever. I learned a lot from her journal, and I’ve really missed getting a view of what it is like to be not just A teen queen, but THE teen queen. Plus, it seems that since she stopped writing, people have felt free to spread all kinds of rumors that she could easily quash with a journal entry.

Velvet Rope: Stars Crash the Vanity Fair Oscar Party



The Vanity Fair Party is a celebration of the nominees and winners of the Academy Awards. It’s also a chance for random celebrities with no affiliation to the Oscars to show up all dressed up and have their picture taken. As a result, lots of surprising stars crash the party every year, using any excuse possible to get inside. Here, we guess what they might have said to get the bouncers to let them in to the party.

Larry King: I’m Lauren Bacall.

SIZZLER: Brooke Hogan Drops Digits


Hulk_hoganAccording to this message board, Hulk Hogan’s not-quite-legal-yet daughter Brooke gave her number to an over-anxious Chili’s waiter over the weekend. The classy guy couldn’t help but post about it.

i waited on hulk hogan’s daughter last night…i think her name is
brooke right?..anywho…she left me a very nice tip and on the credit
card receipt she scribbled "you’re hot…gimmie a call sometime…her

Reading the thread, it sounds like he’s probably not going to call her– a decision that angered some wrestling fans. Some of the responses are hilarious. Like:

Dude. This is the Hulkster we’re talking about. Not Leaping Lenny
Poffo. Retrieve her number, call her up, and get in that squared

Guys! Come on! Have you ever seen Hogan Knows Best? The Hulkster tracks his daughter with a GPS device! And just try to think about what you’re gonna do, when those 24" pythons run wild on you. This guy made the right call.
