The Sandra Bullock/Jesse James drama is moving from tragic to ridiculous in record speed. While most celebs—including the heartbroken Oscar winner herself—are staying mum on the subject, Dennis Rodman is not your average celebrity. Asked by InTouch Weekly how he feels about the scandal, the Sober House star—who beefed with James on Celebrity Apprentice last year—was sympathetic…to a point. “With all I’ve been through with marriage, divorce and girlfriends, I’m the wrong guy to ask…I happen to like Jesse and hope this works out for them.” Fair enough. “However, should it not, with all her success and money, I’d be happy to take Sandra Bullock out for the time of her life.” While that’s a kind and generous offer, Dennis, we’re guessing she’s not looking for another tattooed badass reality star to spend her cash right now.
Tattoo model Michelle “Bombshell” McGee might be up for a night on the town, though, considering how unapologetic she’s been about cutting Sandra’s Oscar afterglow short. The fetish/tattoo model recently revived her Twitter with a succinct “suck it!!” (since deleted) followed by “thanks for all the support.” Though she tried to change the subject (“I really want some Ben and Jerrys half baked ice cream.. Yummy!!”), she’s since suggested we all “go drink some haterade” because, as she expressed via acronym, she does not give a f— (“IDGAF!”—also deleted). Don’t worry, Michelle, it won’t believe until no one else gives a f— either.

Courtney Love may be legally restricted from talking to daughter Frances Bean Cobain, but she can still talk about her. Love blamed the split—and the following restraining order—on an October fight, though she says Frances was the abusive one. “Frances came out of my room. She was hysterical,” Love told the New York Daily News. “First she was crying at my legs, saying, ‘Why was I born?’ Then she bites and scratches and pulls on my hair. She punched me…I grabbed her with both arms. That left a bruise and she took a picture of her bruise.” Wherever did Frances learn such deviousness?
Thankfully, Love says ex-boyfriend Edward Norton is serving as a mediator between the two, despite all those tweets where she accused the star of costing her six figures in shady money deals. “I feel very bad,” she confessed, now saying he actually tripled her money (math is hard, yo!). “I have the greatest respect for Edward. He could be the President of the United States. I could be his drug czar – ha, ha.” Ha. If this wasn’t enough drama for you, Love also says Frances’ lawyer may have been driven by Brit-daddy Jamie Spears to attack the Hole singer after she said one of Spears’ relatives claimed he sexually abused her (Love is pals with former Brit manager Sam Lufti, no stranger to restraining orders). If you’re a celebrity who hasn’t had a regrettable encounter with Courtney Love yet, you’re just not trying.

Chris Brown and Tila Tequila are falling back on bad habits. Unbeknownst to the LA Times, who published a profile of the Shot Of Love star discussing her departure from Twitter this weekend, Tequila has opened a new account on the service, confirming it on her website. “I am starting over. Starting FRESH! This page is gonna be a LOT more fun anyway!” So no more describing potential miscarriages as they happen, then?
While the prodigious poster has avoided that kind of drama, she can still find ways to infuriate gawkers. Upon discovering that fellow Twitter exile Brown has also returned to the forum, Tequila declared “I support you Breezy!!!…U deserve it boo!” despite previously announcing she would “pop him in the face for being such a f—ing arrogant —hole” and comparing him to footballer Shawne Merriman, the alleged ex-boyfriend she accused of abuse. Despite having begged for support in a phone message for fans last week, Brown has yet to acknowledge his new friend.

Chris Brown just called to say he loves you….and that he’s really desperate. In a remarkably pleading message left on his SayNow account, the Graffiti singer pleaded for fans to get him back on the radio. “I never really did this…I need all of my fans’ help. All the fans that I have, I need your help. A lot of radio stations aren’t playing my records…they are not being that supportive and I wouldn’t expect them to. It’s on the fans, and what you guys do in your power to bring me back. That’s all I need is you guys and nothing else will do that, except for the fans.”
Though vaguely reaffirming his continuing regret over beating Rihanna last year (“I don’t know what else I can do…I’m doing everything I need to do, I’m doing me as a person, I’m a better guy”), Brown suggests he can’t survive off good intentions alone. “It won’t be possible [to continue] if I’m not relevant on the radio and it won’t be possible for me to be an artist if I don’t have any support…I can’t be an underground mixtape artist, heh.” Like how Jon Gosselin can’t get a normal job? After Chris’ expletive-filled Twitter meltdown last December, we’re surprised his handlers are cool with him having access to a service like this. Next time you’re feeling unappreciated, dude—call your mom.

No, Lindsay Lohan isn’t doing a Pirates Of The Caribbean sketch with Fred Armisen on SNL tomorrow. The chipped fashionplate was just hanging out with Christian Dior designer pal John Galliano earlier today at Paris Fashion Week. Sadly, LiLo reportedly arrived too late to take a front row seat alongside Jared Leto and Charlize Theron at the Dior show itself, with security sending her back to her hotel to sulk instead.
This embarrassment comes painfully soon after word that her debut celebrity DJ gig Wednesday failed to please the party people at London’s Sketch. “Lindsay was clearly struggling to play the set on her own and had to ask [DJ Gareth Geno] for help. She seemed like a total drunken, incoherent mess…It was really embarrassing to watch. You could tell she didn’t didn’t know what she was doing.” Adding insult to injury, Geno’s assistance was taken as proof of a love connection by the eager beavers at the Mirror (who also say she screamed “Dance! I feel like I’m in a f—ing zoo!” at the gawking crowd). Lindsay dismissed the rumors in a since-deleted tweet (“I’m NOT dating him. lies lies lies.”), but it sounds like such gossip is the least of her problems. Check out shots from her European adventures below.

God bless Twitter. When Axl Rose and Kurt Cobain faced off at the MTV Music Awards almost twenty years ago, the stars were left to stew in their juices following the night’s feud. But following a public shouting match at last week’s NME Awards, Lily Allen is free to post grotesque twitpics of Courtney Love at Milan Fashion Week, while Love responds with, well…she can speak for herself.
oh @lilyroseallen tweeted that pic? thats just baby brat nonsense we are NOT having a” FUED” WOULDNT DEIGN TO post a pic of her thighs…but im not the one on gak every night dear, you are, and im not the one who uses the word “relevant” to reassure meselfALWAYS…your really a brat, is there anyone who you havent started a meaningless strop with? the night you did all the blow on earth…the night you home invaded me did all the blow ive ever seen in my home wouldnt leave and blamed ME for yr s— show?thighs?…But then again i dont pick fights with insanely deluded irrevelant friendless unatractive children who noone i know even close to likes.
Love then posted several unflattering pics of Allen circa 2008 (Love digs deep!), retweeted some supporters, called the 24-year-old singer a “feral woofy dog,” and said Allen doesn’t have an exclusive deal with Chanel—Love’s earlier accusation that kicked off this mess—because she’s “too plump” (that’s right, two critically hailed artists are having fight online over which one is ugly and which one is fat). Allen has yet to respond to Love’s unending-as-of-our-posting stream of bile (“whata sad baby, retire already so you can stop picking fights with everyone for no reason, ps tip, nme awards not venue to dress filmstar”) but we’re sure it’s only a matter of time.

Last night our Twitter feed was abuzz with the glorious news: Conan O’Brien, heroic leader of comedy dorks everywhere, had joined Twitter. Everyone RT!!! NBC’s rejected late night host was only packing around 7000 followers last night at 8PM EST, but this morning that group has grown to 243,981 fans. The guy’s only got one tweet up so far, but it’s hilarious and perfect and made of diamonds and butterflies: “Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me.”
Conan originally bashed Twitter on “The Tonight Show” (oh, remember the good ol’ days?!) but he seems to have jumped on board, if only for one reason: to beat Jay Leno. In less than 24 hours, Conan skyrocketed past Jay’s measly 30,000 Twitter fans with his growing army of Twittering Team Conan members. If Jay’s corporate-looking page with boring show updates doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about the dude, then what good is Twitter for, really? @Coco 4-ever! #weloveConan.

After last week’s cryptic tweets about intense stomach pain (followed suddenly by celebration over an impeding Russian adoption), many wondered if the reportedly pregnant Tila Tequila had suffered a miscarriage. Thanks in part to an e-mail she allegedly sent to a prankster pretending to be a Japanese magazine editor, some wondered if she was ever pregnant in the first place. Now the internet pin-up says she’s not only got a kid in the oven, but that she’s marrying the anonymous sperm donor. Here are some three-eyed fish plucked from the toxic stream that is her Twitter:
I spoke 2 my baby dada 2day & he says hes 100! wants 2 marry me. So I figured, life is short. Y not jus marry the man who loves me & my baby…When I get back from tour, he & I are getting tatoo’s 2gether, then I keep doing my job, but once belly starts getting big, Im movin 2 Texas…YES IM STILL PREGNANT! YES I HAVE DECIDED TO MARRY THE FATHER OF MY CHILD! YES I AM STILL TRYING TO ADOPT A BABY FROM RUSSIA! THERE! NITE!
Tila, who was engaged to the late Casey Johnson at the time of her death less than two months ago, says she’s unable to explain her announcements, lest they capture the attention of the media. “I promise when the time is right & I feel that its safe, I will one day answer ALL of ur questions about my mysterious life right now. <3…I dont wannbe the cause of my children, bio-logical Children& husband to get hounded by media. I want 2 protect them frm wut I been through.” But who will protect them from her?
