Can someone say “Meow?” Kelly Osbourne and Christina Aguilera haven’t exactly been fond of each other over the years, but the claws really came out recently onÃ‚Â E!’sÃ‚Â Fashion Police, courtesy of Ms. O. It all started when Joan Rivers commented on how Christina looked “stuffed” in her dress at a party in Munich, Germany, calling her “Snooki‘s Scandinavian cousin.” This would have been more than enough of snark for the day, but — oh hell no! — it wasn’t.
Said Kelly, of Christina, “Maybe she is just becoming the fat b—ch she was born to be. I don’t know. She was a c—t to me. And she bought my house.” Ã‚Â Did it stop there? Does it ever? Kelly continued with, “She called me fat for so many f—ing years, so you know what? F—k you! You’re fat too.” Ouch.
Kelly took a lot of flack for her weight over the years and it’s obviously been weighing on her (guys, seriously — pun unintended). She revealed, “I took more hell for being fat than I did for being an absolute raging drug addict. I will never understand that.” We like Kelly. We really do. And she’s f–ing hilarious (to speak like her), but in moments like these (ie: on national television) a little more grace is probably due.
Sarah Palin would hate for you to think she was playing the race card or anything when she criticized Barack Obama for letting rapper/actor Common speak at White House poetry celebration last night. You see, Common is one of those cop-killing, violence-inciting thug rappers you’ve heard about. “This rapper—we thought that we were to be united under the leader of the free world, Barack Obama, in tamping down racism and inciting violence and cop killing, certainly, and killing a former president,” Palin said on Fox News last night. “All those things that this rapper has glorified and really is known for, it just certainly reflects a lack of judgment on the White House’s part.”
In case you really knew Common for acting in films like Just Wright, recording albums with ?uestlove and sweetly proposing to a suburban deaf girl in the “Come Close” video, Palin is referring to a song recorded about Black Panther Assata Shakur and another lyric about “burning Bushes.” But don’t think she’s not down with hip-hop for equating Common with Eazy-E. “I am obviously a proponent of free speech. I’m not anti-rap. In fact, like Bret Baier, I know the lyrics to ‘Rapper’s Delight,’” Sarah Palin said. “But I am saying just common decency in the White House—wouldn’t we like to see a reflection of all that is wonderful and great, a shining city on a hill that the White House is supposed to be, with events inside of that house that reflect the patriotism and the decency and the influence of America.” So people who dare to voice support for ’60s activist figures and make mean metaphors about unpopular politicians shouldn’t get to recite poetry there. Gotcha, Sarah. But do you really like that Sugarhill Gang lyric about “super sperm”?

Man, Kevin Smith has such bad luck with airlines! Actually, we all do—we just aren’t famous enough to turn our delays into a news event. The Clerks director, who was famously “too fat to fly” Southwest Airlines in February, took to his blog Monday to bitch about missing a Virgin Airlines flight with wife Jennifer Schwalbach and pal Jason “Jay” Mewes. Seems the snooty staff refused to let them on the plane despite arriving with an airport liaison more than ten minutes before the departing time (“Sometimes, y’all put folks up front who give your company a bad name”). Though he didn’t mention being raped by x-ray scanners, Smith was furious they wouldn’t give his wife’s luggage back (“Dorothy, the concierge, said in her 27 years working with all the airlines, she’d never seen anything like it.”) Mewes acknowledged the “nightmare” on his Twitter, but seems to have gotten over it (“Morning boner ;)”).
Unlike Southwest, Virgin Airlines quickly apologized for the drama—leaving Smith to explain to his fans why he has a “liaison” bring him to boarding so late in the game. “When you fly first, you board first, sit down…and then EVERYONE files past you. And when you’re the Too Fat To Fly guy on a plane? Well, everyone stares. Then the whispering starts. A hundred people look right at you—when you’re not on a stage. It kinda blows…[the liason's] job is to get you to the plane on time, but not when boarding begins; that way, you don’t have to play the Elephant Man for passengers passing you en route to their seats…The entire service is designed to get you to the plane door shortly before the door closes.” Unsurprisingly, he learned about this service from a certain Ben Affleck. But hey, if you don’t want people to stare at you…don’t be a 40-year-old man in knee-length jorts!

Mariah Carey has publicly expressed her dislike of Jennifer Lopez, but is there another diva who rubs Mrs. Nick Cannon the wrong way? According to the New York Post, Mariah and Rihanna, “refused to talk or be photographed together at a Halloween bash” and “worked hard to upstage each other at Carey’s party at M2 Ultralounge.”
Riri, dressed as a tiger, reportedly stayed with her pals, including singer Ne-Yo, in a booth and wouldn’t cross the dance floor to pay her respects. Meanwhile, Mariah stayed in her VIP area with hubby Nick Cannon, and when she had to use the ladies room, security had to clear a path so no one would damage her giant angel wings. According to Mariah’s rep, however, the whole story is fabricated. “There were 1,000 people there and, of course, she needed security. She heard a rumor that Rihanna was there but she never saw her. She loves Rihanna and of course would have said hello.” So what do you think? All made up or do these divas have real beef with each other? [Source: New York Post; Photo: Getty Images]
As if Heidi Klum wasn’t graceful enough, balancing a powerhouse career as a supermodel and host of “Project Runway,” while keeping hubby Seal and their soon-to-be family of six smiling, Heidi found quite a slick way to respond to Karl Lagerfeld‘s dis of her career. The Chanel designer recently snarked, “I don’t know Heidi Klum. She was never known in France. Claudia Schiffer also doesn’t know who she is.”
Heidi responds in the new issue of Page Six Magazine, saying, “I don’t know why [Karl] said that. Maybe he wanted to be in the paper? Maybe he doesn’t understand what I do? It’s bizarre to me that he says he doesn’t know who I am because he’s dressed me in the past. I’ve worn Karl Lagerfeld. Not even Chanel—his line. Lagerfeld doesn’t just send random things everywhere, so it was a big thing for me [to wear his label] to the CFDA Awards a few years ago. I don’t know how he missed that, when he dressed me that time. But you know, it’s cool. People can say whatever they want to say. You can’t please everybody, and you can’t live your life wanting to please everybody either.”

Although she has publicly knocked daughter Tori Spelling for using her grandchildren as “reality show props,” now Candy Spelling is ready for a show of her own!
“Yes, there is,” Candy said, when asked if there were plans in the works for a show. Candy clarifies however, that she does not intend to compete with her daughter and Dean McDermott in the reality show arena. “I wouldn’t do a reality show,” Candy says.
Despite their previous feuding, Tori hopes her mom’s new show is a success. “I wish her the best,” Tori says. [Source: People; Photo: Getty Images]
Christian Audigier is famous for his torn, bedazzled $120 Ed Hardy t-shirts, and apparently the designer thinks that anyone whose clothing is not laden with gems and their name is just not up to par. Christian recently bashed Victoria Beckham‘s clothing line, calling Posh Spice’s designs “simple.”
“I like her, she is a nice girl, but she is not completely my style,” Christian says. “I have seen some of her designs, they are very simple. It’s difficult for an artist or a singer to enter the world of fashion.”
Maybe Vicky B. should glue some gems and paint “Posh” all over her duds and then Christian wouldn’t think she is so “simple.” [Photo: Getty Images]
Spencer Pratt, lying? NO!
Well, believe it people. At least according to Lauren Conrad the most evil half of Speidi never actually apologized for spreading those sex tape rumors.
“To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t on the other end of that call. That was filmed, and I wasn’t on the other end. So I didn’t even know about it. So, no, I didn’t get an apology. He lied,” LC told the ladies of The View this morning.
So why did she attend former BFF Heidi Montag‘s nuptials?
“It’s hard to understand now, but a long time ago, years ago, we moved here together, and we were best friends, and we used to say, ‘Some day at our wedding….,’” Conrad said. “I just felt like it was a few hours of my time, and as much as I didn’t agree with it, I might some day regret not doing it.” [Photo: Getty Images]
Gene Simmons says Adam Lambert is “great and has a lot of talent,” but the Kiss bassist is clearly tired of talking about the American Idol runner-up. Plugging Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels on FOX Philadelphia, Simmons got annoyed when the newscaster asked how it felt to perform with Lambert on the show’s finale. “How it felt for him to perform with us, you mean?”
You just have to realize who the governor is and who the little puppy is. This kid’s great he’s a got a lot of talent. He doesn’t really have a rock’n’roll voice…he should be the singer in Queen or be on Broadway, but mostly he should shut up about his sexual preferences. Me, America and the rest of the world doesn’t really care. I mean if the story becomes “I prefer farm animals to…”, who cares? Be quiet about what you do indoors and go out there and sing.
Seeing as how Simmons has written a sex-filled autobiography, stars in a reality show and never hesitates to remind us how many women he’s screwed, it’s more than a little hypocritical for him to complain about Adam’s recent openness. Is he homophobic or just jealous?

It appears that the days of Shanna Moakler and Travis Barker dissing each other on MySpace are over. Travis has moved on to bashing Shanna through Twitter, and Shanna is – not responding!? What?! These two used to air their dirty laundry all over the internet.
Yesterday, Travis Twittered about motherhood, in a possible stab at Shanna.
Travis said, “Kids are not used as weapons. Deadbeat moms that sleep all day, seeking money, attention like to do so. Just hurts the kids in the end.”
In a second apparent diss, he said, “Giving birth 2 a child doesn’t make you a good mom. Taking care of them, loving them, waking up to them, spending time with them does.”
Shanna however, is not playing the Twitter game with her ex. “As I’ve said before Shanna is not going to play out her personal relationships in the media,” her rep said. [Photo: Getty Images]
