Listen up, famous people, we know fame and fortune can’t buy happiness, but we kinda count on you to be leading the good life so we can live it up through you. So when you start looking like you’re doing just the opposite, it hurts us too (you know, after we eat up all the headlines about your downfall). In the past week, two of our favorite leading men — Jason Segel and Jake Gyllenhaal — former porn star turned writer Jenna Jameson, rapper/comedian Donald Glover and a few others have us worried for them. Are they getting high or getting into character? Expressing themselves or calling for help? Let’s look a little more closely, shall we?
The former self-described “Queen Of Porn” Jenna Jameson faces another set of legal battles after she was arrested on Saturday night for allegedly beating someone in her home. Police were summed to the Newport Beach residence after an individual claimed that Jenna assaulted him, and now the former adult film star could face formal battery charges.
Clueless/Single Ladies alumna Stacey Dash practically broke Twitter this morning when she posted the above photo with the message: “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future. @mittromney @teamromney #mittromney #VOTE #voteromney.”
Before this past week, when Dash has been in the news thanks to the Clueless reunion Entertainment Weekly put together, she’s mostly made headlines for her rep as a diva. So we’re gonna go ahead and guess that this is not the Romney campaign’s secret plan to win over women voters. But we’re grateful to Stacey for giving us a reason to bring up a questionable endorsement for Romney’s opponent: the list Snoop Dogg/Lion reposted on Instagram last week, listing “Why I’m Not Voting for Romney” and “Why I’m Voting for Obama.” Read more…
The main thing we learned from the Jackass 3D premiere is that life needs more Rip Taylor. The former game show regular and friend to the Jackass family is killing us in his pictures from the film’s L.A. premiere last night, but he’s just one of many interesting characters who walked the red carpet. Rather than just throw together a regular gallery from the film’s premiere, we decided to put together a Top Ten Most Insane Looks list because there was a hot cup of crazy being passed around last night, and everyone was drinking from it. In addition to the regular Jackass crew, Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera and Steve-O, we got some old MTV favorites, some total randos and some people we can’t explain. See for yourself.

Now this is what the VMAs are really about: fashion trainwrecks trainwrecking around trying to out trainwreck each other. And while it absolutely pains us to include some of our favorites on this list – Rihanna, Robyn, former MTV VJ Kennedy (er, JK) – nothing compares to the suffering they caused our eyes tonight with their wardrobe WTFs.
Without further ado, here are the looks we hated (on stars we – sob – love). Are we being too evil with our fashion eye? Talk back to us in the comments. And yes, we’ll fully admit to being the worst-dressed nobody of the night – yoga pants, a giant purple t-shirt and our one accessory – a medium cup of Haagen Daz. Luckily our cat took paparazzi shots, so we’ll be happy to share. [Photo: Getty Images]
When a porn star tells you somebody is faking it, you sit up and take heed.Ã‚Â And when Jenna Jameson says celebrity sex tapes are nothing much an elaborate sexy ruse, you say, “Girrrrrrrrl!” Tweeted former porn star Jameson, “Why do people do porno tapes, sell them, make boatloads of money, then LIE about being victimized. I know one girl who sold her tape herself.” Girrrrrrrrrrrl!
Okay, we know what you’re thinking: Duh, Detective Jenna. Way to crack the case. But you see, the difference between Jenna Jameson saying a celeb sex tape was faux-leaked and the other 5.99 billion people who say the same thing is that Jenna knows of which she speaks.Ã‚Â Having Jenna Jameson examine a sex tape for authenticity is like calling an expert witness to the stand at a trial. Sure, maybe they weren’t there at the exact moment it happened, but theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen enough to know what they’re talking about.
Continues Jameson, “@SOFTBLUSHcom I know one of the girls that acts so prim and proper and sold her tape to get famous. The others I just speculate. I own up to my porn, I don’t cry and say my boyfriend stole it.” Wait, prim and proper? So does Snooki have a sex tape coming out soon? Be still our hearts! Jenna does have a point though. The sad fact is, for most fame-hungry celebs it’s easier to say, “Oh my gosh, someone must have stolen the tape from my computer!” than to say, “Oh my gosh, I am so humiliatingly desperate for attention I’m going to stage a fake divorce from my David the Gnome-looking husband in order to make money off my unsettling Barbie sex tape.”
Either way, Jenna, we’re with you all the way. At least until Snooki actually makes that sex tape, because then all bets are off.
Hey, you know how Tito Ortiz said Jenna Jameson is addicted to Oxycontin and after she had him arrested for domestic violence? Well, try if you can to forget that—all of that. According to TMZ, Jameson is looking to scale back her accusations of assault against Ortiz. “What actually happened has now been dramatically distorted and misinterpreted and remarks that both Tito and I made after the police arrived reflect the state of shock that we were both in,” she told the site. It’s hard to imagine how statements like “[He] threw me into the bathtub and tore two ligaments in my shoulder” and her initial plans to file charges could be “distorted and misinterpreted,” but so be it.
For his part, Ortiz now claims he found two Oxycontin pills and, in the words of the site, “jumped to conclusions” (Jameson reportedly tested clean for drugs after the altercation). There’s no word yet from the LAPD on whether they’ll continue to seek criminal charges against Ortiz. As Chris Brown and Charlie Sheen can tell you, these things (thankfully) don’t depend on the victim’s desire to testify.

Tito Ortiz and his lawyer are going to have to think of a new strategy now. Ortiz was arrested on Monday for felony domestic violence and claimed that the fight was over girlfriend Jenna Jameson‘s alleged OxyContin addiction, but that theory has just gone bust. TMZ reports that the former porn star passed a drug test one day after Tito and Jenna’s altercation.
The test was administered Tuesday by the American Toxicology Inc. in Las Vegas, and it shows Jenna tested “negative” for the ten major drugs they were screening for. The list includes cocaine, weed, meth and Oxycodone which is the major ingredient in OxyContin, the drug she’s been accused of being addicted to. Reaffirming her denial after receiving the test, Jameson says, “I am definitely not addicted to OxyContin or any drug.”
Her attorney Ronald Richards added, “The lab tests clearly exonerate Jenna Jameson of any hint, iota, or suggestion that she ingested or was under the influence of any opiates or controlled substances. Statements made by anyone to the contrary are completely impeached by the results from this prestigious testing facility.”
Tito Ortiz was in tears after his arrest for allegedly attacking girlfriend Jenna Jameson, but he’s not apologizing. Speaking at a press conference in Hollywood yesterday, the mixed martial artist claimed the mother of his year-old twin sons is suffering from an addiction to OxyContin. “My parents have been through an addiction and I see it in the mirror again. I am not going to let my family go through that…I speak from my heart, I hold everything dear to my heart that Jenna will be okay.” “Tito was trying to help her, she has threatened suicide before,” said Ortiz’s attorney, suggesting any injury was caused by Jameson’s “emotional meltdown” following her confrontation by Ortiz. “When you’re dealing with people on OxyContin they don’t always have the best sense of balance.”
Denying any dependency issues, Jameson told TMZ his claims were “the last nail in the coffin.” In her version, the former porn star “said something very hurtful to [Ortiz's] ego.” “[He] threw me into the bathtub and tore two ligaments in my shoulder.” Talking to Radar before Ortiz’s public statement, Jameson suggested the pair could still work things out. “I think everyone deserves forgiveness. I think couples therapy is highly imperative in this case. He hasn’t apologized yet because he’s not allowed to contact me, but I know he’s willing to work on it. He’s dealing with a lot right now, but he needs to learn to deal with it in a different way.” According to Jameson, who says she’ll file charges, she and Ortiz are not allowed to speak for a month due to an impending restraining order.

Mixed martial-arts fighter and former Celebrity Apprentice contestant Tito Ortiz was arrested for felony domestic violence this morning, according to TMZ. Police were investigating a “disturbance” at Ortiz’ home with Jenna Jameson when they noticed “visible injuries” on the former porn star. Jameson, who has been with Ortiz since 2006, gave birth to twin boys just over a year ago (the pair are not married). See photos of Ortiz and Jameson in the gallery below.
