The only thing hotter than the weather this sweltering July was our Twitter feed! Celebrities of every stripe were tweeting teasingly scandalous photos that were not always safe for work (unless you work for VH1 Celebrity, in which case, it’s cool). It seemed like there were more super sexy skin-filled Twitpics in July than in the rest of 2012 combined! Maybe it’s global warming?
Selena Gomez modeled a selection from her new bikini style line, while Adrianne Curry modeled her BDSM-inspired Comic-Con outfits. Rihanna tweeted so many sun-drenched photos from her never-ending Mediterranean vacation that we’re starting to imagine that we were there. Some celebs, like Aubrey O’Day, Heidi Klum and, of course, Coco, tweeted up-close and personal pics of their favorite body parts (spoiler alert, it was usually boobs or butts) and reps from the Kardashian Klan went more for the full body shots. The Spears sisters both weighed in with bangin’ bikini shots of their own, and High School Musical soul sisters Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens did the same.
We had hot moms like Jada Pinkett-Smith, Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Minnillo and Jessica Alba. And Kris Humphries’ rumored GF Myla Sinanaj shared a pic to prove she’s gonna be a hot mom in the near future. And of course models like Candice Swanepoel, Bar Refaeli and Tyra Banks turned even the most humble Instagrams into glam shots worthy of GQ and beyond. If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the gallery below. But if you want the sexiest Twitpics of July 2012, you’re in the right place!
We never went to finishing school and our experience wearing dresses is limited at best, but we’re pretty sure it’s ill-advised to skip out on the underpants and then lift up your dress. And Coco appears to have done just that while out on the town in London over the weekend. But hey, who knows, maybe the rules are different over there. They do drive on the other side of the road over there, after all.
Ice-T’s bombshell of a wife apparently gave her undergarments the night off on Saturday as she went out the hip DSTRKT club in a purple leopard print dress. She suffered her first clothing mishap of the evening when she busted out of her plunging neckline, but then she fired back at the photographer’s flash bulbs with some more flashing of her own! Looking lovely but a little fried after a long night (note the smeared lipstick on her cheek), Mrs. T lifted up her dress after exiting a cab, delivering a very vintage wardrobe malfunction. Upskirts are so 2006, you guys. Head on down to the (VERY Not-Safe-For-Work) gallery below to see what went down, err, down there.

Unlike those magazine editors you see on TV and in movies, we website editors are not normally a power hungry bunch. But there are times that do call for us to flex our muscles, so to speak, and one of those times is today. You see, in order to turn the VH1 Celebrity Bikini Awards into a bracket, we needed one more branch to add to the seven contests we posted earlier this month. So we looked back at who hadn’t yet made the cut for round 2 and discovered — gasp! — that our beloved Coco was left out in the cold, shivering in her tiny thong. She faced some seriously tough competition in the Reality-TV category — what with Drita launching a full-on Twitter campaign for herself. But really, Coco belongs in a category all by herself. That’s why we’re making her the Editor’s Choice.
But this is your only save, Coco. Now it’s time to face the Awards’ last remaining male competitor, the delectable Shemar Moore. We were honestly surprised to see the Criminal Minds star so easily beat the likes of Joe Manganiello and Channing Tatum. But it seems Shemar and his abs have had quite the following, long before anyone hear the words Magic Mike. Can his physique stand up to the likes of Coco’s fabulous rear end? We’ll see, after voting ends tomorrow at midnight!

If anyone questioned Coco’s position on nudity, please look no further than the above photo she posted last week. It’s sure to shock even those that understand that “appropriateness” has an entirely different definition for the model/reality-TV star.
“Haha, I have fun taking Thong Thursday pics…That was taken after boxing class,” Coco tweeted on @cocosworld. We have definitely seen our share of provocative photos from Coco, but this latest image is, well, extra unfiltered. On one hand, we gotta hand it to you, Coco: We applaud you for your obvious self-assurance in your body image and give it up to you for your dedication to boxing class…your perky, firm butt definitely confirms your workouts have been paying off. (No cellulite here!) On the other hand, maybe this pic falls more under the category of a photo you text to Ice-T? But whatever is working for you, Hunny. Check out the whole NSFW shebang after the jump, and tell us if you think she should hold back or keep those Thong Thursdays coming.
Sometimes our jobs are very tough around here. We’re a little more than halfway through 2012, and as we very studiously looking back at all the year’s most newsworthy and RT-ready Twitpic’d, Instagram’d and Facebooked photos, we started to feel a little nostalgic. It seems that many famous people have stopped accidentally sharing naked photos of themselves this year. I mean, good for them for learning, but bad for us. Still, there was no shortage of controversial pics — many thanks to Rihanna, who doesn’t care what we think of that white powder or that possibly racist threat against Karrueche Tran. We had some headline-makers, like Miley Cyrus’ non-engagement ring and Leann Rimes’ “fun” shooting range photos. And there certainly were some steamy snaps — from Disney stars like Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale, usual suspects Coco and Kim Kardashian, and even newcomers to the scene like Paulina Gretzky. Not many guys got in on the action, but Usher is worth about a dozen regular men, right? Anyway, enough gabbing, let’s get on to the photos!

Coco has proved time and time again that she is the best sport when it comes to the world’s fascination with her assets. We kind of find it amusing that, in a clip from her appearance on Bethenny Frankel’s new talk show, she is surprised to learn that she has the most Googled butt on the planet. She’s modest that way. We also love that her next response is to empower all the other ladies out there. “It’s OK to have a little dimples, girls! I’ve got them.”
After being felt up by the host, Coco defends herself against doubters who think there’s no way that rear is real. “I’m 33 years old — of course, it was smaller when I was in my teenage years,” she says. So everybody looks at pictures and is like, ‘It’s not as big as it is now.’ But I’m 33 and a woman! I gained weight!”
Coco has been very good to us here at VH1 Celebrity. Plus, we feel that her husband Ice-T could totally kick our ass. So when we found out that Cosmopolitan called the lovely Ms. Austin “skanky,” it really rubbed us the wrong way. The magazine featured a picture of Coco walking her dogs in their “Sexy vs. Skanky” column, and they were less than kind in discussing her, errr, minimal attire. “Showing your pups while walking your dogs,” they snarked as they bestowed the skank label.
Coco took to her twitter last night and fired back at the fashion mag’s accusations. “Cosmo is always talkin crap about me,” she wrote. “Paparazzi took pics while I was at dog park! They think I’m skanky cuz I’m wearing a tank top?? So stupid,” Sticks and stones, Coco. Sticks and stones. But she’s not taking it sitting down and neither are we. We’re going to do the right thing and jump to defend Lady Coco’s honor! We’ve painstakingly assembled her 40 most glamorous styles of all time. Take that, Cosmo! It’s red carpet chic, in a way that only Coco can. We’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy. Head on down to the gallery below and see for yourself!

When VH1 sat down with Ice-T at a screening of his film Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap, we did not expect the conversation to go the way of zombie vampires … in space. Ever the awesome interviewee, Ice humored our vampire-obsessed tendencies and fielded some very important questions.
After 12 years, Ice’s Law & Order: SVU co-star Christopher Meloni left the series last year presumably to pursue a film career and obviously for his four-episode stint as Roman on True Blood. As a 500-year-old leader of the Vampire Authority, one could say he traded one form of Law & Order for another, much more undead one. On the departure of Detective Elliot Stabler, Ice said “I’m happy for Chris. At some point, you gotta make your exit… If it’s up to me, [Law & Order] will be on for 20 years.” Hilariously Ice added, “He’s going to the best vampire they’ve ever seen because the man’s crazy – he’s got beady eyes.”
Naturally our imaginations wandered and we had to ask about he and wife Coco‘s vampire potential. “We’d be the best vampires in the history of the world,” Ice-T confidently declared. “But I think we need to be a different kind of vampire… like vampire zombies. [Laughs] The next generation – space zombies or something.”
Full interview below, wherein Ice describes Coco’s undercover love for hard-core gore flicks.
I’m sure almost every night in New York and Los Angeles, there is a room that contains handfuls of celebrities, bankers and society ladies clinking glasses and pledging thousands to some cause or another. But, though I have been to a whole lot of those kinds of soirees, I feel like the one I went to last night, a benefit for the Joyful Heart Foundation at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC, is a little bit different from the others. I can’t imagine there are many other events where you would see Ice-T and Coco meet wide-eyed teenagers, Debra Messing loudly promising to kiss a stranger, Samantha Ronson teaching a Christie’s auctioneer how to hold a mic, and Hilary Swank dancing in her seat as Harry Connick Jr. improvised lyrics in praise of Mariska Hargitay. (I mean, it’s no Channing Tatum grinding with Elton John, but still.) And in-between it all we are moved to tears by stories of women surviving rape and abuse, and others fighting for a future where “Special Victims Unit” sounds like a quaint relic of the past on par with typewriters and scullery maids.
Variations of this scene have been going down for years, since Law & Order: SVU star Hargitay decided to make it her mission to heal the kind of victims she’d been helping onscreen as Det. Olivia Benson. And I can tell you from experience (and full disclosure, one of my BFFs works for Joyful Heart) that this isn’t some token cause for the actress. She throws herself into it, and brings her very famous friends along with her.
I’ll Have Another was wearing the roses after Saturday’s Kentucky Derby, but we all know he wasn’t the only star of the event, which has become as much about watching the attendees as it is about the horses. As in years past, celebs put on their derby best to enjoy a day of mint juleps and betting. Although there was little sun in the sky, the folks in Churchill Downs were still seen wearing everything from traditional Kentucky Derby hats to some more elaborate and daring headwear. Coco, Ginnifer Goodwin, Cyndi Lauper, Star Jones, Mary J. Blige and Miranda Lambert were among the ladies showing off straw, feathers, flowers and bows on their heads. Even a few male celebs, like Ashton Kutcher, Kellan Lutz and Joey Fatone, joined in on all the hat fun. Here’s a look at the 20 best celebrity hats at this year’s Kentucky Derby.
