How gorgeous does Demi Lovato look in Elle‘s September issue? With all the recent drama in her life and her phoenix-like return, we were hoping we weren’t going to get a candy-coated interview alongside the photo shoot. Luckily, she didn’t dissapoint. Nothing seems off topic in this piece especially when she talks about the start of her downfall. She recounts how she, “…was completely out of line all summer. Just the worst attitude — totally ungrateful”, leading up to her infamous fight with backup dancer Alex Welch. Again, she doesn’t (pardon the pun), hold her punches about it saying, “I just felt like she’d betrayed me. That’s the bottom line.”
But there’s also conciliatory Demi here. Someone who seems genuinely apologetic for her mistakes. About the whole mess that followed after the fight, she reveals, “When you punch someone on a plane, enough is enough. Right after, I texted my mom and just said, ‘I’m sorry’.” But lest you think her breakdown was all because of a broken relationship with one Joe Jonas, she reckons you’re wrong. Demi flat-out says, “I wouldn’t credit my meltdown to a guy. There was so much other stuff in my life.” Good show, right? We’re totally rooting for her! We also love the fact that she still seems feisty and hasn’t lost her edge even though she’s suitably apologetic.
And here we go again. Our Ã‚Â monthly quota of celebrities getting busted for drinking and driving — because it really is someone every month — peaked super early this time! The first of the month has to be some sort of record, right? This time around, it’s Samantha Ronson who was arrested on DUI charges at around 10.30 in the morning yesterday in Baker, California. She was was driving back from Vegas where she had played at Lavo nightclub on Sunday night. Ms. DJ was pulled over by the cops for speeding but then did the extremely stupid thing of refusing to submit to a breathalyzer. Samantha was then booked and taken to Barstow jail and released just before 5.30 pm. The end. Oh wait, dude, driving from Vegas while drunk? That’s an especially brilliant move. Not.
Remember whenÃ‚Â Brooke Mueller jetted to a Mexican rehab center last month? Turns out she only ended up spending 12 hours across the border before being scooped up by her ex,Ã‚Â Charlie Sheen, who brought her back to the States via private jet. Confused? Yeah, so are we. This isn’t exactly ex-husbandly behavior, but he’s doing it anyway. In efforts to help her get clean, Charlie’s spotting Brooke’s new rehab treatment tab and it’s the same one he went through a couple of months ago when his Two and a Half Men swansong had begun.
Apparently, Charlie was uncomfortable with Brooke’s Mexican getting-clean program since it’s so controversial, which is why he intervened. Brooke’s is already at the facility and Charlie’s monitoring and paying for the whole thing. Hey, they may not be together, but they do have children. If this mutual support system works even though they’re not a couple any more,well, more power to them.
What ever crazy wedding story you may have, please throw it out of the window right now. It can’t be as cool as this one. You disagree? Okay fine — did Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez crash your wedding? No? Then, no, your story isn’t better. But that’s exactly what happened to one lucky couple namedÃ‚Â Rob and Jeanine McCool. Their surname really is McCool which just somehow makes this even better.
Apparently, Belena was strolling on the beach and being all romantic-like, when they heard the sound’s of the Bieb’s One Less Lonely Girl thumping out of the uber-(Mc)cool Adamson House, which is where the wedding reception was taking place. So they just decided to walk in and surprise everyone, especially as Justin grabbed the microphone and announced, “We just crashed it. We heard a party so we decided to just come. So let’s party.” We see a feeding frenzy happening. So, predictably no one threw them out and after a couple of minutes of pictures and posing, Selena and Justin left the building. ‘Cause that’s how it’s done.
So much for Chris Brown apologizing for spewing gay slurs. He was under fire last month for going off on a homophobic rant on some paparazzi saying, “YÃ¢â‚¬â„¢all nÃ¢â‚¬â€as is weak. Did you all call them to try and film me? YÃ¢â‚¬â„¢all nÃ¢â‚¬â€as is gay.” He went on a PR campaign afterward, tweeting, “I have total respect for Gay community and my intention was not to insult anyone in it. #REALSÃ¢â‚¬â€T”.
Apparently Chris yelled anti-gay slurs loudly during a pickup basketball game in L.A. He got very verbally worked up, reveals a bystander, explaining, “He got really ticked off when things didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go his way during the game, saying, ‘ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s gay!’ and ‘You’re a f—got a—!’ to the other players.” The eyewitness also added, “There was no physical contact, but he was verbally aggressive. His demeanor was over the top.” When things didn’t go his way with other plays, he went on about how they pulled “gay” moves.
Psst — Chris, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!
Megan Fox shut down all Botox rumors about herself for good yesterday! In what we think is a pretty hilarious move, Megan uploaded an album on her official Facebook page called “Things You Can’t Do With Your Face When You Have Botox.” She then proceeded to scrunch that gorgeous mug of hers up to show *gaspohnoNOway*… wrinkles! Remember when Teri Hatcher did the same, wrapped in a towel of all things! On a side note — are Meg’s eyes really that blue? ‘Cause they’re just dreamy! Folks, just accept the fact that some people are just weirdly genetically gifted like that. Case closed. Although, we bet that pout of hers is going to start a collagen debate now!
Everyone seems to be going into confession mode! First LaToya Jackson revealed past abuse, and now Bow Wow who has a daughter — and he’s not afraid to tell the world! He’s written an open letter to fans that says, “My lil girl is getting BIG fast. i love every minute of it. She inspires me to go harder. Even made me treat my mother better, its like it made me into a man over night.” When this happened, we have no idea. But he’s a daddy!
It seems like Bow Wow’s been holding back for a while now as he stated, “I waited so long to tell yall the truth because i was nervous on how yall would look at me. Yall know everyone makes a big deal out of everything i do. I wanted to be 1st n let yall know the realI waited so long to tell yall the truth because i was nervous on how yall would look at me…”
He calls his daughter “Shai Shai” but doesn’t speak too positively about her mother saying, “The bs that comes with having a baby momma is expected. So i neva trip. Jus gotta suck it up keep chin high and try not let her get the best of my feelings by playin them stupid games.” He hasn’t posted any pictures yet, but perhaps that will come when he feels like sharing next? You can read the Ã‚Â 24-year-old rapper’s whole letter here.
Our jaws dropped when we heard of LaToya Jackson‘s abuse claims at the hands of ex husband (and manager), Jack Gordon. She appeared on The Talk and spoke about their relationship — he passed away in 2005 — and the details are truly shocking. LaToya said that she was offered to Mike Tyson, for him to have sex with her for a pay check! She explained, “Mike Tyson later told my mother and father and some other friends that he (Gordon) had told him that if he wanted to sleep with me he has to pay $100,000.” Whatwhatwhat?
She also said that Gordon forced and threatened her to take part in group sex and pose for Playboy. She told the stunned audience, “I was in brothels and everything. He put me (it was) everything I was against. He made me do Playboy twice and had me sit on the stage and say ‘Oh no, it was all my idea.’ And I had to do that because I knew what he said he would do, he would do it.” See, we told you this was just insane!
If this is all true, then we really feel for her. But all these confessions are timed with the recent release of her memoir Starting Over which is a no-holds-barred account of her life. The profitable angle gets us wary. Then again, if this is her form of catharsis and it’s her way of getting things off her chest, then who are we to say anything?
Elizabeth Hurley on Gossip Girl, season 5? Do we like this news? Will her posh-actress accent end up bugging us (most likely, yes)? We’re going to be borderline with our reactions at the moment. She may be glorious to look at it, but can she act?
Liz’s character Diana Payne will appear in multiple episodes and as executive producers, Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran, say, she’s “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with. Diana’s entrance on the Upper East Side will change the lives of all our characters – including, and especially Gossip Girl herself.” If only you could see how excited we are while we type this. We’re still not too sure about Liz, though. Help us make up our minds?
Domestic bliss, this ain’t. What it is, is some major anger issues that need to be worked out, stat. Post Weston Cage‘s crazed street fight, you would have thought he would have calmed down and taken some yoga classes or something. One would have also hoped that his newly-wed wife Nikki Williams would support his stress-free endeavors. Not so much.
They’ve graduated to domestic violence, which Nikki and Weston were just booked for yesterday. Felony domestic to be precise, after cops responded to complaints at around 7.30 am. What’s being reported is that Nikki went ballistic and went for Weston with a bottle, ending up cutting him on his arm, punching him like crazy and threatening to jump off the balcony. Wonderfully balanced couple, this. The police do believe that Weston got violent as well, and carted both off to the police station. As of now, Weston has posted bail of $50,000 and apparently told waiting photographers, “Don’t get married”. Nikki got him good because he looked super beat up! FYI, this happened just days after the both of them got out of rehab. We think a tad more therapy is required still, guys. This sort of violence can really spiral out of control again.
