VH1′s I Love the 2000s premiered last night, making it perfectly acceptable to hum Brian McKnight or “I’m Blue” on your way to work this morning. Fourteen years can feel like a lifetime, so it’s understandable if you have a selective memory when it comes to pop culture from the year 2000. Between drastic weight loss from a Subway sandwich-a-day diet to tension-filled quests to trade the right Pokémon cards, it was a weird time.
From the highway, to the court, and even the bathroom, public figures always manage to get themselves into trouble in one way or another. But we have a special place in our hearts for those celebs who took a very wrong turn in the bedroom. Cheating dudes run rampant in Hollywood…at least until they get caught. How can they repent and save their relationship AND reputation? By going to therapy for sex addiction, of course! Are they really addicts, or just incapable of keeping it in their pants? You be the judge.
Sarah Jessica Parker ups her shoe game, Breaking Bad‘s creator weeps over the series’ impending end, and the battle for the weekend box office begins.
How much money did Farrah Abraham finally get for her sex tape with James Deen? Who “stole” Reece Witherspoon‘s brain? And why was Iron Man 3 the big winner at the box office this weekend–even though no one in the U.S. could see it?
What super personal information did Tiger Woods just post publicly on Facebook? And an exclusive first look at Ryan Gosling in The Place Beyond The Pines-plus more-in today’s Last Lap.
We guess we just never imagined an Olympian would go into sex work. Doesn’t every athlete get sponsored by Wheaties for the rest of their natural lives? We guess not, seeing as how ESPN reported today that three-time Olympic runner Suzy Favor Hamilton has admitted on Twitter that she’s also been working as an escort. Even more intriguingly, Hamilton claims she was “drawn to escorting in large part because it provided many coping mechanisms for me when I was going through a very challenging time with my marriage and my life.” Wow, the things we don’t know about stuff. Of course, we can’t pretend we don’t know a lot about celebs and sex work. Don’t worry, Suzy. You have plenty of interesting company when it comes to celeb escort scandals…

Some fathers know best, and other fathers know hookers. Some fathers play golf, and others play the field. Some dads mow the lawn, and others mow down mailboxes with their Mercedes while drinking and driving. Some fathers make plans to take their wives out for dinner, while others make plans to “take their wives out.” And then there are some dads who pretend they’re not dads at all! Think we’re kidding? We wish.
It’s safe to say that not all fathers know best. Just look at Michael Lohan, Jon Gosselin, Mel Gibson, and other guys we wouldn’t trust with a pair of scissors, not to mention a kid! So join us this Father’s Day while we count down the 15 worst pops of all, ranked by the standard unit of bad dads: the Michael Lohan. If your face is in the gallery below, you’re probably not getting a tie for Father’s Day this year.

Call us crazy, but the only thoughts we had while watching Drive last weekend were 1) how do we get Ryan Gosling to kiss us on the mouth and 2) Do you think he’ll let us borrow that jacket? He would, right? He seems like a nice guy. Now we find that, not only did the Drive trailer baffle at least one audience member, but it also inspired some meat-related crime! Meat-related crime against Tiger Woods!
In a sad attempt to be a real human being and a real hero, Tiger Woods hot dog hurler Brandon Kelly apparently chucked said wiener at the golfer during the Frys.com Open, telling police later, “I threw the hot dog toward Tiger Woods because I was inspired by the movie Drive. As soon as the movie ended, I thought to myself, Ã¢â‚¬ËœI have to do something courageous and epic. I have to throw a hot dog on the green in front of Tiger.’” Wow,Ã‚Â we must have been in the bathroom for that scene. Watching Ryan hurl a brat in slow motion at a professional golfer would have been the only thing that could have made that movie better.
Relax this post is strictly PG. Tiger Woods was the target of a flying hot dog on a Californian golf course yesterday, that’s all! The incident went down at the Trys.com Open in San Martin, while Tiger was concentrating on trying to putt a shot. It was at that moment that a fan — who was apparently inebriated, according to officials –Ã‚Â yelled “Tiger” and threw the dog straight at him! Of course, security was all over him like a rash afterwards. But we have the dude to thank for one of the best quotes ever. Tiger, post Hot Dog Gate, said, “When I looked up, the hot dog was already in the air.” No further comment needed.
Look, we’re not huge fans of Tiger Woods. He’s a dog, in our opinion, and his personal indiscretions, while wildly overexposed in the media, were certainly not something to ignore. But the thing is, while the guy majorly f—d up his family life and his marriage to Elin Nordegren (who has proven to be an awesome, strong , take no-s— lady) he didn’t, y’know, go all Chris Brown and beat her up. He did the responsible thing in what was a terrible situation: He issued a heartfelt apology and then got divorced so he could dick around, free of any additional, familial consequence. So no, we don’t pity him, but we just saw the headline “Tiger Woods’ Girlfriend Made Crayon Drawings For Him As A Child” and felt really dirty and even a little bad for Woods. Because even though the guy used his fame for sex, this just makes him seem creepy.
Woods has been quietly dating Alyse Lahti Johnston, a 22-year-old student, since January, and has known Johnston since she was a kid because her step-father works at IMG, the agency that represents Woods. While there is a 13-year gap between the two, and they met when Johnston was a child, is it really necessary to mention that she made him crayon drawings? Unless we found out that said drawings were still prominently on display in Woods’ home, or Johnston is still making crayon drawings for him, this is just what kids do. They make stuff and give it to people. No, they don’t usually end up dating the guy who works with their dad, but still. We feel gross even defending Woods here, but we think that’s just because when you compare him to Brown or, say, Charlie Sheen, his indiscretions seem positively innocent. It’s possible that once a cheater, always a cheater, and he may never change or be a “good” guy, but we don’t need to make him sound predatory while we’re at it.
