The Duff Sisters Kick Some Ass

We’ve always found the Duff sisters to be pretty bland. Hilary is just like a vanilla version of an Olsen twin, and really the only thing to respect about Haylie is the fact that she’s never seem to give a sh*t about the constant criticism about her looks and sister-mooching. So it was seriously awesome to see them throw down again some asshole photographers who were stalking them at a hearing for their parents’ divorce. The sisters get sassy, and rightfully so. We like looking at them when they’re all drunk and fugly, but when they’re dealing with personal stuff that’s none of our business? No thanks. Leave them and their fashion mistakes alone while they deal with their family BS, please. [Socialite's Life]

Hilary: Ready for her Breakdown?

Hilary_onbrit

Hilary Duff recently shared her thoughts on the turn Britney Spears‘ life has taken, saying Spears’ breakdown was "inevitable." Apparently, in between cutting pop music that’s neither popular nor musical and choosing a succession of film roles that’s the celluloid equivalent of walking through a house with dog crap on your shoe, Hilary is a behavioral expert. Who knew? Says Hils:

"Being Britney Spears must be difficult. She’s been told what to do since she was young. She’s not a bad mom – she’s a first-time mom, and because she’s famous, she’s expected never to make mistakes. The pressure she’s under would get to anyone. People need to leave her alone."

Hilary, who’s also been told what to do since she was young, says she fears for her own emotional well-being. "I’m not going to stop doing what I love because I’m afraid of breaking down," she adds. Atta girl, Hils. Keep doing what you’re doing! You’re gonna look so hot with a shaved head one day, when you’re a little older! [The Post Chronicle / Image credit: Getty]

Avril vs. Hilary and Haylie

AvrilvsduffsRumor has it that Avril Lavigne was miffed when she arrived at the same time as her arch-nemeses Hilary and Haylie Duff at last Wednesday’s Maxim Hot 100 Party in New York. Avril has a longstanding rivalry with Hilary, and by extension, her sister. Unfortunately, though, no blows were thrown over the intersection of "talent": Avril is said to have threatened to leave and otherwise could be seen "driving everyone crazy." The Duffs were seemingly less affected.

We expect this sort of behavior from the Sisters Duff. Horses are, after all, docile creatures. But for would-be bad-ass princess Avril to merely steam and stew over girls she didn’t like entering the venue, that’s like sooooo whatever! She could do so much better! She didn’t so much spit or even flip the bird. Not very punk, of her, is it? [MSNBC]
