Would Cameron Diaz be so lovey-dovey with her fit new boyfriend Paul Sculfor if he was totally bald? That’s the question we’re asking ourselves this morning, after the British model (also an ex of Jen Aniston and [agh!] Lisa Snowdon, who in turn once dated George Clooney as if she would ever not stop reminding us. My goodness, Eva Mendes knew what she was talking about with that “sex recycling” business) talked about how bad his coke addiction got a few years ago.
“I bitterly regret using cocaine. Apart from anything else, it made my hair fall out. It started falling out in my partying years, because excessive cocaine abuse affects the adrenal system and halts hair growth. I’m lucky it grew back.”
Too right, Paul! Otherwise, you would just be your average slapheaded ex-model knocking 40, rather than Hollywood’s resident A-list-squiring-swordsman. And that would be just tragic.
P.S. Is that just us or is Cameron getting a bit rock’n'roll on us in that finger gesture? Must be that naughty Paul’s influence. [Now Magazine; Photo: Getty Images]
Mindy McCready, everyone’s favorite country singer/drug addict/Roger Clemens humpee, will be going back to prison for sixty days following her latest parole violation. On top of a July overdose (blamed on the revelation of her affair with Clemens) and rehab stint, McCready hasn’t been fufilling her community service requirements. Said McCready (in a statement), “I am working very hard to put all of this behind me as quickly as possible so I can get back to what I like to do most: sing, write songs and entertain.” There’s no word on whether her sentence will affect the release of her comeback album, which was supposed to drop later this year.

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester appears on the cover of Us Weekly and reveals “Her Untold Story.” The 22-year-old actress, who plays spoiled, conniving Upper East Sider Blair Waldorf, actually began life as a jail baby, born to her incarcerated mother who was just beginning a ten year sentence for her involvement in a drug ring that smuggled tons of marijuana into the United States. Leighton talks to the mag about how her role on Gossip Girl sharply contrasts from her modest upbringing, being made fun of in high school, and her ex-con mama.
On playing a pampered princess:
“It’s hard for me to relate to people who were born with silver spoons in their mouths.”
On her mom Connie, who got pregnant with Leighton while out on bail:
“I swear, that woman knows everything. Every question I’ve ever asked her – life questions, personal stuff like boyfriend advice, she’s always had the right advice for me.”
Summer did not go very well for the O’Neal family. On the heels of Tatum O’Neal‘s June arrest in connection with suspicion of cocaine possession, her father Ryan O’Neal and half-brother Redmond O’Neal were arrested this morning for suspicion of methamphetamine possession. The Love Story actor and his 23-year-old son with actress Farah Fawcett were taken into custody after Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputies and probation officers went to their Malibu home for a routine check on Redmond, who is serving three years of probation after pleading guilty in June to drug possession charges. Both remain in custody on $10,000 bail. [Source:AP; Photo:Getty]
When it comes to Kate Moss’ penchant for sniffing, it appears the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Kate reveals her five-year-old daughter Lila Grace also has taken a liking to inhaling – gasoline! While Kate was promoting her new fragrance Velvet Hour, the former Calvin Klein model revealed that she holds the door open for young Lila when she is filling up the tank, so that the tot can stick out her snout and get a nice big whiff of gasoline. Kate told The Sun, “I’ve heard it is one of the most preferred scents in the world — maybe that’s something to study for my next fragrance.”[Source:The Sun; Photo:Getty]
Blake Fielder-Civil, better known as Mr. Amy Winehouse, allegedly declined the opportunity to leave jail early. The courts were supposedly ready to let him go, as long as he moved back to his mother’s house in Nottinghamshire. But Blake’s so keen on returning to the puke-stained streets of Wino’s Camden that he’d prefer to stay in prison than go anywhere else.
It was all set for him to be released, but because he refused to go to anywhere other than Camden, it was refused at the last minute. He doesn’t want to go to somewhere where he can’t be reunited with Amy and his friends. He’d rather stay inside. The Prison Service feared he would break his parole if he was surrounded by the temptations of his old stomping ground.
Gee, why on earth would they think that?
Meanwhile, Amy Winehouse put a picture on Facebook featuring Blake with his pee-pee out. Now we can all miss him.
Although Frances Bean Cobain‘s father Kurt Cobain tragically killed himself when she was only two years old, 14 years later Frances decided to have a “Suicidal 16″ party for her Sweet 16. Frances held her “death of childhood” party at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, and the band Mindless Self Indulgence played. In an email Frances allegedly sent to her pals, the only child of Nirvana’s frontman commanded that guests “must be wearing black or red or you will not be allowed in.” At least Frances had a strict drug code, warning her underage friends, “Your bags will be searched at the door. not my rules, but it is the house of blues’ rules. so don’t be stupid and try to bring shit it. do it b4 you get into the party if you have to and try to be stealth!” The suicidal soiree allegedly cost Frances’ mother Courtney Love over $300,000 and Courtney reportedly wore the dress that Angelica Huston wore in the creepy comedy, The Addams Family.
Check out Frances’ alleged invitation to her party and the gallery of photos posted on her MySpace.
The battle between Rob Lowe and two former nannies is heating up. Rob and wife Sheryl have made claims that former nanny Laura Boyce terrified their children by describing gang activity in graphic detail and telling stories about people having their eyes and limbs cut off. In Boyce’s sexual harassment lawsuit against the Lowes, filed in April following former nanny Jessica Gibson’s suit, Boyce claimed she was offended by Sheryl allegedly walking around the house naked. A former friend of Boyce’s stated that Boyce smoked pot, used sedatives to help her sleep, and referred to her basketball player boyfriend as the “N” word.
You think Pete Wentz is weak? You think an emo bass player who hosts an MTV video show and marries Ashlee Simpson is afraid to die? Pete Wentz is a f*cking wild man and don’t you forget it.
I pulled a trigger on a gun aimed at myself. My friend and I did one pull each. We’d been drinking and had taken Ambien. I feel stupid even talking about it. It’s one of the reasons I’ve never owned a gun – I’m too impulsive. I’d probably get mad and shoot someone over a part in a song or something.
Yeah! That’s some Deer Hunter shit right there. Give this guy some pills and he’ll turn into Phil Spector before your eyes. Fall Out Boy popping a cap in your ass!
Watch out, Ashlee. The man who bought you a giant Lego bee is a ticking timebomb. [Page Six]
Amy Winehouse is facing possible legal action from the organizers of Paris’ Rock En Seine music festival after pulling out two hours before the headlining gig on Friday. The singer claims it was due to illness, but not even a note from her mum will get her out of this trouble. The organizers of the three-day festival were not pleased with her last-minute cancellation and have decided to “start legal proceedings.” But legal woes are the least of her problems.
According to reports by UK’s Sun newspaper the British songstress might be suffering from brain damage. According to one of Amy’s friends “the future is bleak, bleak, bleak.” The friend also stated that the 24-year-old allegedly smoked so much marijuana and hashish during a 36-hour period that she went into convulsions. Winehouse reportedly suffered two overdoses in the past year and doctors fear that her body can’t handle another one. She is scheduled to appear next at England’s Bestival Festival on the Isle of Wight this Saturday. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that the talented and tragic performer will make it.
