There, there, Jeff Archuleta. Feeling upset about your son David coming in second on American Idol? You’re not alone. Tons of celebrity stage parents feel shame when their child fails to live up to the exceedingly high expectations they’ve set for them! You’re in good company. The VH1 Blog has rounded up six of our favorite celebrity stage parents, who prove time and time again that even if you can’t make it in showbiz, you sure as hell can force your kids to live your childhood dreams! Success never tasted so sweet.
1. Dina Lohan - Why not ruin one daughter when you can ruin two?! This week Lindsay‘s running around France forgetting what she learned in rehab, while Dina focuses on destroying Ali‘s youth with her new reality TV show. Both are clearly idiotic career movies for the girls. But you know what they say, mother knows best!
Is Lindsay Lohan finally making her alleged relationship with DJ Samantha Ronson public? The pair – who go everywhere together (except rehab) – are currently in Cannes together promoting, uh, nothing, and they were spotted looking very close and cuddly last night! Lindsay’s always been more than open about her sex life (remember her rehab boyfriend?), but she has yet to confirm the rumors that have been buzzing for a while that her and Sam are more than just good friends. These latest pics are pretty incriminating, if you assume that holding hands and nuzzling means they’re doing it. And damn, we hope it does! Hollywood is desperately in need of a new, fun couple to obsess about, and Pete and Ash and Paris and her twin aren’t cutting it. Bring on Lonson!

It’s reassuring to know that even celebrities have meltdowns, though we’re not really surprised when it’s coming from Naomi “Blackberry thrower” Campbell. The supermodel celebrated her 38th birthday in Cannes last night, and took the party onto Diddy‘s yacht (wouldn’t you?) But a few hours later she emerged from the boat crying and looking well, like some crazy drunk chick we often see weeping outside of a bar at 3AM. Stars ARE just like us!Diddy and Naomi have apparently had some beef before, even though they’re also close pals. The rap mogul allegedly screamed at her last year in the middle of Jermaine Dupri‘s Grammy after party. At least Naomi got to breakdown while dripping in diamonds as well as tears. Seriously, the sparkling on her wrists totally distracts from the water works in her eyes. We bet no one even noticed!? [The Sun]
Mr. Mariah Carey was busy rubbing shoulders with the likes of Quincy Jones and Diddy at the celeb-packed party at Foxwoods last week, when his wifey called him up making demands. Mimi was at a photoshoot for Elle magazine, and wanted her man there to watch her “work.” Nick was summoned to the shoot and stayed with his sugar-mama until the shoot wrapped at 5:3o AM. Not the best way to spend your night, but it could have been worse – Mariah’s assistant was also around with a blender in hand, constantly making protein shakes for her boss. Divas do it right, natch! [NYP]
Aerosmith’s Stephen Tyler is going to rehab.?? [TMZ]
Ali Lohan is looking dangerously older than her big sis.? [DListed]
Kristi Yamaguchi won Dancing With The Stars last night. Isn’t ice skating like, the same thing but without blades? Cheater!? [Seriously? OMG!]
Pete Doherty has never looked better (or more sober)!? [Jezebel]
That creepy dude who founded the Backstreet Boys is headed to jail for 25 years. Talk about a comeback.? [ICYDK]
Did Britney bang the pool boy at her Costa Rican resort?? [CelebSlam]
That crazy-eyed socialite, Masha Markova, who accused Lindsay Lohan of taking her fur coat is now suing the actress, calling her “oppressive and malicious.” Ouch! We’re sure it was extremely emotionally traumatizing to be separated from her fancy coat for a few weeks, and her suit claims that as “has been injured by the defendant’s actions.” She is seeking money, of course, though no amount has been listed (Masha previously said she wanted $10,000). We’re gonna guess that LiLo is probably thrilled with the suit, as she can possibly turn it into a new career. Forget movies – this is a lot easier, and with the same amount of paparazzi attention!
Whitney Port popped her lady hills out while lunching at The Ivy. Link NSFW, obvs.?? [ONTD]
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt loves to shop with her pops.? [DListed]
Lilo looks good on Ugly Betty.? [Seriously? OMG!]
Kate Hudson rebounds from Owen Wilson with lady lover Lance Armstrong.? [I'm Not Obsessed]
Carrie Underwood‘s wig-like hair: hot or not? Real or not?? [ICYDK]
Britney Spears is rockin’ the bikini and ridin’ ATVs in Costa Rica. Keepin’ it real(ly trashy)!? [IDLYITW]
Diddy ruled the night this weekend out at the Connecticut casino/resort Foxwoods, where he helped to welcome the new, $700 million MGM Grand Casino with a celeb-studded bash. The only problem? The “celebs” were resident D-Listers like Top Models Jaslene and CarriDee, and our favorite lady of the night, Kim Kardashian. Peep the pics below to see who showed.
We could not be more excited for what is sure to be the best trash on television, Living Lohan. Yes, it’s Dina Lohan‘s reality show about managing her daughter Ali while she watches as her eldest daughter Lindsay‘s career turns to crap. In other words: comedy gold! Check out this sneak peak of the ep; you’ll learn to love the sick way it makes you feel – promise!
Uh oh - Nick Cannon has created a monster, a monster who is busy planning a massive second wedding to her new young lover! Yikes. A big-mouthed source blabbed some of the details of Mariah Carey‘s second big day, alleging that Naomi Campbell is on the wedding guest list (she’ll be throwing Blackberries instead of bouquets). The spy also said that, ?She wants over 2,000 guests and the budget will be well over $4 million and she?ll have at least 14 bridesmaids.? Hot damn! That’s not a party, that’s a parade!
Wedding #2 is supposedly taking place here in NYC over the next six weeks, so we’ll be on watch. If you see a giant white blob floating toward you (perhaps riding on a giant butterfly?), look out! Mrs. Mimi’s getting married, and it should be a sight to behold. [MSNBC]
