LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian aren’t engaged and are hopping mad with E! for saying so. Those two have been popping up in the news all week, and we last reported on the LeAnn-Eddie engagement too. We also reported about the Shape magazine-party controversy, which FYI, eventually, LeAnn didn’t turn up for! And she even tweeted the invite; what a shame.
As always, there are two sides of the story. E! is standing by theirs. A source reckons that LeAnn and Eddie went ballistic because E! stymied them out of an exclusive. You know, pimping out the pictures and the wedding which would have translated into a mega payload for the couple.
LeAnn, on the other hand, wants the world to know just how mad she is because there’s apparently, no ring in question. She went on a long Twitter vent and didn’t mince her words at all with , “Ok, I’ve about had it with the lack of “reporting” with E News. The fact that our “engagement” has spread so furiously over the past 24 hours off of an E News article that is 150% untrue just shows you the lack of credible “sources” they seem to find and build a story around…”
Stop. Pause for breath (us, not her, clearly). There’s a whole lot more, but we’ll leave it to you to read. She ended with a flourish saying, “… Eddie and I felt we couldn’t let this rumor go on any longer.”
And there’s bad news all around for LeAnn, because this all coincided with the Shape party. The story is that she was sick and couldn’t attend and has been tweeting illness-alerts regularly. One tweet also tried to tone down the Shape magazine beef with, “Headed to the dr in a bit. This flu thing is hard to shake. Just to clarify, I was never supposed to sing at the Shape party and yes, under dr’s orders I couldn’t go. I spoke to Valerie yesterday I don’t know how many times and all is well w/ absolutely NO controversy. There is LOVE all around from Shape to me and Me to Shape.” Seriously, all that pent-up hell-hath-no-fury made our hair frizz, so tweet all you want.
Zen, LeAnn. All that anger’s messing up your juju!
50 Cent is still on Twitter, and today he’s showing off a fraction of the money he’s made rapping, acting, and selling that sweet, sweet Vitamin Water. Fiddy posted this picture of himself with his one true love – cash - capped off with this tweet: “Who said I don’t have a heart. Lol”
Yeah, sure, LOL. We’re LOLing right into our Ramen Noodles – the only thing we could afford to bring for lunch today. Keep rubbing it in 50 – it’s working. We’re jealous. Congrats.

Here’s a sentence we’d never thought we’d say: Demi Lovato is in rehab. Hold up… it’s not for drugs. The official statement reads, “Demi Lovato left her tour early this weekend in order to seek medical treatmentÃ‚Â for emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time. Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help. She is doing just that.” According to People Magazine’s sources, Demi’s dealing with an eating disorder and cutting.
Things started getting a little strange over the weekend, when Demi vanished off Twitter (she even became a trending topic as a result of her departure). And now she’s dropped out of an international concert tour with the Jonas Brothers as well. Apparently, Demi’s fight with a female member of the tour is what eventually made her take the decision to admit herself. Props to her for dealing with her problems; we hope she gets the help she needs.
What’s this whole “I’m-sorry-I’m really not sorry-Screw your sorry” biz going down?Ã‚Â Shape magazine ed-in-in-chief Valerie Latona, first apologizes for having LeAnn Rimes on the cover of her publication. The story dealt with her and Eddie Cibrian, bringing up all sorts of unpleasant cheating-marriage breaking up associations because a still married Rimes hooked up with a still married Cibrian. Those two aren’t exactly Mr. and Mrs America right now and the pieceÃ‚Â had peeps getting out their pitchforks and screaming, “Adulterer!”Latona’s apologetic statement read,”Please know that our putting her on the cover was not meant to put a husband-stealer on a pedestal-but to show (through her story) how we all are human. And this woman in particular found strength in exercise in what she said was her most difficult personal moment.”
Then Latona does this semi-retraction on her apology writing, “The fact is a mere 40 readers out of almost 6 million readers wrote in to complain calling LeAnn a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœhusband stealerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœterrible mistake for Shape.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ I wrote to those women apologizing that our cover choice did not make them happy Ã¢â‚¬â€œ as I have done for other cover stars in the past.”Ã‚Â Then she blogs a note called Setting the Record Straight on LeAnn Rimes where interestingly enough, the tags on the post are “backpedaling” and “cowardly”.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Whatevs. Pick a side and stick with it, make your stand blah blah blah.Ã‚Â It’s Monday and we’re grumpy so all this waffling doesn’t cut it.
Because now LeAnn Rimes sees your non-apology and raises the stakes pretty much shoving you out of the game. How? By making the Shape crew look like hypocrites. In her defense, LeAnn tweeted, “wow, that’s really funny since they’re are throwing me a party in LA next week to celebrate this being the 3rd time I’ve been on their cover.” Ouch. Then to drill home the point, LeAnn tweeted the invite. Mission Accomplished. Unless they’ve canned the party… which we’re guessing they have not. Let’s all carry on with our day now.
A wee fan proposed to Demi Lovato after her concert in Colombia. The dude pulled out all the stops and popped out a ring while on bended knee. Of course, his private moment ain’t exactly private anymore. Demi tweeted a picture of the occasion typing, “You guys…. I’m engaged!!!!!!!!”
In case peeps didn’t get it, Demi set the record straight in her next message, tweeting, “And no I’m not really engaged to my fan! That was just a joke!!!” Such a good girl, Demi. Making sure too many hearts didn’t get broken across the globe.
We admit the idea of besties Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift planning a wedding would’ve been fun, although, admittedly a lot more wholesome than Katy Perry and Rihanna‘s pre-wedding bash. Disney stars gone wild! Erm, we don’t think so. Britney Spears, they are not.

An intruder was just caught in Paris Hilton‘s house. Before you tell us this is old news, let us just say… it’s not. Because this is the second time it’s happened this year. Intruder no 1. broke into Paris’ house with two knives in August. Luckily her BF Cy Waits was there to pull a heroic, Batman-like move and saved the heiress. The fact that Cy hasn’t been so lucky post the episode, is of course, a different story altogether.
The newest crazy dude isÃ‚Â James Rainford, who is currently being held on $20,000 bail after being booked for battery. He somehow got past the guard gate on his bike before getting busted by Paris’ private security detail. Here’s the thing though: he managed getting to her front door and knocked as if to say, Ã‚Â “Hi, I’m the weirdo who just broke into your home. But I knocked before, because I’m polite.”
It’s a good thing she’s invested in bodyguards, but really, how the hell did this guy get past the first blockade in the first place?
Rainford went down swinging too. He got violent with security who had to hold him down till the cops arrived. Once again Paris tweeted about the incident, saying, “So scary today with that creepy guy just showing up at my house like that. Thank god for security.”
You can say that again. Because it seems to be Paris’ lot in life to attract the crazies (and yes, we are talking about her boyfriends too).
Most celebrities get buff while they’re on Dancing With The Stars, but Aaron Carter made his extreme transformation a year after he was on the show. In a Twitter picture Carter posted this weekend, the pop singer has proven himself to have abs, arms, delts, pecs and a neck of steel. He wrote in the Tweet “I’ve been at Johnny Wright’s compound working on my mind, music, and body for a new album release!” Good old Johnny Wright’s – your one-stop shop for turning into a pop music Incredible Hulk. If Carter’s mind and music are anything like his body, we fully expect Carter to sweep the Grammy’s and go to Harvard next year.
What do you think, is his look hot or a little scary?
Now that she’s at the Betty Ford Center, Lindsay Lohan is being forced to take a good, hard look at all her addictions, and not just the drugs and booze. Page Six reports that Lindsay is required to cut down on her Twitter and internet use, too.
A source said Lindsay is “only allowed to use her phone for two hours a day, and only to keep in touch with family and close friends.” Okay, we know that our cell phone is invaluable but yikes, to have your usage reduced to two hours? She should also be treated for BlackBerry Thumb. They also said that in the past, Lilo “would repeatedly and compulsively e-mail her friends if she was ever in a situation where she felt lonely, and she would vent on Twitter.” Reducing outside distractions like Twitter and the like is a common policy at Betty Ford so that patients can focus on themselves, according to the source who sure has a lot to say about what should be a private matter in a confidential setting. Lohan hasn’t actually posted any public Tweets since entering this latest bout of rehab, so maybe it’s working already.
The paper also reports that Dina Lohan and Kris Jenner have become besties while Lindsay’s in rehab, and that Kim Kardashian is getting friendlier with Lindsay too. That’s either really sweet and kind, or one more attempt at fame whoring from all involved. We’re sort of thinking the latter.
Bwah ha ha ha ha. There, that felt good. Yes, t’was our reaction to John Mayer‘s declaration that he closed his Twitter account to focus on creating “lasting art.” Blogs music’s most entitled bard, “no artwork created by someone with a healthy grasp of social media thus far has proven to be anything other than disposable.”
He adds, “Those who decide to remain offline will make better work than those online. Why? Because great ideas have to gather.” Fair enough. But isn’t it somewhat hilarious that Johnny made this declaration on his Tumblr blog, yet another social media site? He may have quit Twitter, but he’s still stuck in the social media trenches. Dare we suggest that blogging, such as John is wont to do, takes up even more of the precious time he could spend on the creation of masterpieces like “Your Body is a Wonderland?” Clearly one can only pen brilliant lyrics like, “Girls become lovers who turn into mothers” when closed off from all digital communication. So shouldn’t he shut down completely?
Who’s the dude with the weird floppy hat roughing up the dude with the camera? That just happens to be Adam Lambert kicking a paparazzo’s ass. Woah. We’re surprised, ’cause Lambert really doesn’t strike us as the kind of guy who would suddenly go all Terminator on anyone!
The slap-down happened in South Beach, where Glambert and his peeps were chilling and walking around in the sunshine. Paparazzi were swarming around them and got a little too close for comfort, and that’s when Adam snapped. He was walking back to his hotel when he jumped the closest photog, shoving him around until his friends had to separate them. And if they hadn’t already made their displeasure perfectly clear, the American Idol alum’s entourage mooned the cameramen right after.
Don’t expect any remorse from the singer, however. The incident is outlined on Lambert’s Twitter, reading, “Eeew paparazzi killed my peaceful afternoon on the beach! #howisthisok?” This was followed by a longer tweet, with him venting, “They’re real good at provoking, but there ain’t any pics or video of the b.s. they spew out… Haha well… I lost my temper for a sec but wow it felt great lol MIAMI!!!”
Looks like he was feeling quite chatty, because he ended up calling out his own dodgy sartorial choices as well, tweeting, “Hahha the photos are hilarious !! Lol please everyone forgive me for that hat. – I was attempting a disguise- clearly failed. Hahah.” We’re laughing too, but we bet that camera dude isn’t! Who thinks a lawsuit is coming Glambo’s way even though the paparazzo seems to be smiling in half of these pics? Unfortunately, we do.
