K-Fed, Great Husband

Kevin Federline was recently reunited with his beloved Ferrari after wife Britney Spears had it towed for undisclosed reasons. The U.K. Sun carried a report last week, that Federline was begging Britney for forgiveness and then asked “can I at least have my car back?” A source told the paper: “He loves his car almost as much as he loves Britney.”

But he'll probably stay with the car much longer before he figures out he can't get it pregnant THEN dump it.

All that publicity and he picks THIS?!

Wilmar Valderama apparently is getting a little payback for his day job of dating underaged girls who are more famous than he....yes, he has now signed for that movie that everybody in Hollywood was fighting to be a part of, thats right, the CHIPS remake. Apparently Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, and Jake Gyllenhall were seen crying and consoling each other for having missed out on this amazing opportunity.

Hopefully for Wilmar's career this remake will be as big as, Car 54 where are you, Starsky and Hutch, The Dukes of Hazzard, and the Golden Girls Reunion on the Lifetime Channel.

Gee, theres a shock

Less than two months after Paris Hilton scuttled her planned marriage to shipping heir Paris Latsis, her Simple Life costar has scuttled her planned marriage to deejay Adam Goldstein.
"They have decided to break off [the] engagement," Richie rep Cindy Guagenti said in a statement. "The decision is mutual."

Gee, theres a shock, a former junkie who is basically an anorexic can't get it together enough to sustain an engagement? Guess theres no hope for Mary Kate Olsen.

Don't worry Michael, maybe there are little kids in the Homeless Shelter

LOS ANGELES - Michael Jackson faces a crushing $270 million foreclosure in two weeks that could mean he loses his Neverland Ranch and Sony Beatles music catalog, the Daily News has reported.
And as the fallen star's financial D-day, Dec. 20, looms, he is "isolated and intoxicated" on prescription pills in Bahrain while frantic family members rush to plan a rescue mission to the Middle Eastern nation, sources said yesterday.
"It's a meltdown - Michael's life is on the line, physically, and his finances are in ruins because he has listened to the wrong people," said one source familiar with Jackson's business woes.
His family, especially brother Randy and sister Janet, are frantic. "Janet thinks he needs 12 months of rehab. ...Randy wants to get Michael out of the clutches of handlers who don't have his best interests at heart," alleged the business source.
"All of the chickens have come home to roost. Michael will be homeless - a houseguest of the prince [of Bahrain]," said a family source familiar with the crisis.
Jackson's three kids and nanny Grace Rwaramba are with him, guests of the royal family. "Grace has been calling the shots. She has made it difficult for the family to communicate with Michael," said the business source.
The heavily mortgaged and leveraged pop star's financial woes heated up last spring while he was on trial for child molestation, according to the business source.
At the time, Jackson owed $270 million to Bank of America (two loans, one for $70 million and another for $200 million.), the source said. The debt was secured by the singer's Neverland Ranch and his share of the SONY/ATV music catalog, which some experts think may be worth $1 billion or more.
In April, Jackson defaulted on the smaller loan, triggering a total revamp of his finances, the source said. In May, Fortress Investments bought Jackson's $270 million loan package from the bank and tried to work out a payment plan with the pop star, who was acquitted of all criminal charges last June.
But Jackson failed to make his payments and defaulted in October, according to the source. Now, Dec. 20 looms as the foreclosure date and sources say Jackson has no way of paying off the massive note. That means Fortress will have to sell off his assets to recoup their $270 million, the source said.
In addition, Jackson has failed to make payments on a $2.2 million second mortgage he took out on the family's Hayvenhurst mansion in Encino, Calif., and his kin expect to get the boot in the new year.
Jackson bought the home for his family in the 1970s, and his mom, Katherine, brothers Randy and Jermaine, Jermaine's ex-wife Alejandra and several of Randy and Jermaine's kids now live there. Dad Joe is said to spend little time there.
"They are making plans to move. This is the home where Katherine raised her children and now she has to leave," said the source. Fortunately, Janet Jackson bought her 75-year-old mom a house in Las Vegas, so she won't be homeless.

Dr. Phill? Doesn't know Dieting? Theres a Shocker!

Dr. Phil" McGraw admits in damning E-mails he had "no expertise" in making the line of diet products he endorsed and is being sued for.
Still, he put his name on Shape Up! nutrition supplements, shakes and energy bars after asking for "the strongest of disclaimers" in the products' ads.
His concerns, detailed in E-mail printouts contained in court records and obtained by the Daily News, may come back to haunt him in the class-action fraud suit filed by angry users of the diet line.
With his demand for the warning label suggesting misgivings about the Shape Up! hype, the E-mails may be a weighty topic at his deposition, which could take place as early as next month.
"This fleshes out our position that Dr. Phil was in charge...he was rewriting the commercials," said lawyer Henry Rossbacher, who filed the class-action suit against Dr. Phil in 2004.
The suit alleges Dr. Phil, who endorsed the products, and CSA Nutraceuticals, which marketed them, made phony claims about Shape Up! products.
Ads and packaging promised the products could "help you change your behavior to take control of your weight" and "control eating impulses."
Those claims were "deceptive and fraudulent," the suit alleges.

Here just a though, fat guy endorses diet food......might be a problem there.

Lewd Rubbing causes strickter security around PAris Statue, Tara Reid heard to complain.

The effigy of 19th Century journalist known as Victor Noir has long been popular with women visitors.
This is partly due to his reputation as a romantic figure, and partly because of the effigy's design.
Officials concerned about damage to the icon's groin area have erected a fence around the grave, and a sign prohibiting indecent rubbing.

Because the UN has SUCH a good track record...

The UN said yesterday said that Saddam Hussein's trial would never satisfy international standards because of ongoing violence and flaws in Iraq's legal system
John Case, the UN's human rights chief in Iraq, said the murder of two defence lawyers, continued threats against judges, lawyers and witnesses and weaknesses in the Iraqi justice system had caused grave doubts about the trial's legitimacy.
"We're very anxious about the tribunal [trying Saddam]," he told Reuters in an interview. "The legitimacy of the tribunal needs to be examined. It has been seriously challenged in many quarters."

Yeah, thats right guys, you could do a better job, like with those trials against the Serbian leadership from years and years ago? You did a great job resolving those in the internationsl forum didn't you? Oh wait, thats right, those have never finished. Heres an idea, clean up your own mess before you comment on something, it makes you look less like a fool.

TV's Joey being benched, TV's everywhere breath sigh of relief

NBC will bench its much-maligned sitcom "Joey" in an effort to shore up the network's struggling Thursday night lineup.
Come Jan. 2, "Joey" will be replaced by "Will & Grace" in the 8 p.m. slot as part of a makeover of the key 8-10 p.m. time period.

Ouch!! Your new sitcom which is a spinoff of what was one of the hottest shows on TV is being replaced by a past it's prime show lumbering into it's last season? Hope you've got the Resume Polished up there Mr. Le Blanc

Nahhhh, Stars don't get special treatment

COPS IN Scottsdale, Ariz., say they noticed an "odor of alcohol" when they pulled over Vince Vaughn and his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, for a "minor traffic violation" Tuesday. A police rep says officers performed a field sobriety test on Vaughn, who wasn't cited but was warned not to drive. The police tell Vince and Jen left the car, then sped away with friends.

So lets get this straight, they were driving erratically enough to get pulled over and the car smelled like alcohol yet they were let off with a warning!? I'm sure they must have had much more important things to do than ticket a drunk driver, you know, like give me another parking ticket.

Well I guess cops in Hawaii aren't as starstruck as the ones in Az.
"Lost" stars Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros were arrested in Hawaii for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol, People magazine reported yesterday.
Rodriguez, 27, who plays Ana Lucia on the hit ABC show, and Watros, 37, who plays Libby, were arrested Wednesday night on the island of Oahu, where the series is filming its second season, People said on its Web site.
"They were arrested just before midnight without incident, and both women were driving their own vehicles," Capt. Frank Fujii of the Honolulu Police Department said.
No other details of the arrest were available. Reps for both actresses and the show had no comment.

Wizard of Oz gives Brittany Spears a Brain

Britney Spears is said to have booted her wastrel husband, Kevin Federline, out of their Malibu mansion.
We hear the couple had a blazing row Wednesday night in which the pop princess banished the skeevy dancer to the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Word is Brit lost it when a pot-packing pal of Federline's showed up at their house.
"Britney turned around and fired two of her longtime security guards for letting what she called 'the weedman' into the house," a source tells Star magazine. "She just seemed crazy with anger."
Spears is said to have become exasperated with her hubby's well-documented partying since the birth of their son, Sean Preston, 11 weeks ago. Federline, whose hobbies Spears finances, has brushed off her pleas that he see a therapist, according to insiders.
Following Federline's eviction, Spears and her girlfriends headed to DJ AM's new Hollywood club, LAX. The singer, who turns 24 today, didn't seem to be pining for Federline. Downing Grey Goose and Red Bull with "Jackass" cohorts Steve-O and Johnny Knoxville, Spears set to dancing on the seat of her banquette.
Spears recently turned down the chance to replace Christina Applegate in the Broadway musical "Sweet Charity" because, according to "The Insider's" Marc Malkin, she didn't want to "uproot her family." That was when they were a family. With Federline in exile, maybe she'll reconsider.

Maybe she isn't as dumb as we all thought she was......nahhh, if she was smart she would have left BEFORE he could have sued her for child support. On the bright side, she's gonna save a bunch of money now that she doesn't have to buy him any more baggy pants and stylists to corn row his greasy hair.

U.S. papers hiding the truth a bit?

"Western press and frequently those self-styled 'objective' observers of Iraq are often critics of how we, the people of Iraq, are proceeding down the path in determining what is best for our nation," the article began. Quoting the Prophet Muhammad, it pleaded for unity and nonviolence.
But far from being the heartfelt opinion of an Iraqi writer, as its language implied, the article was prepared by the United States military as part of a multimillion-dollar covert campaign to plant paid propaganda in the Iraqi news media and pay friendly Iraqi journalists monthly stipends, military contractors and officials said.
The article was one of several in a storyboard, the military's term for a list of articles, that was delivered Tuesday to the Lincoln Group, a Washington-based public relations firm paid by the Pentagon, documents from the Pentagon show. The contractor's job is to translate the articles into Arabic and submit them to Iraqi newspapers or advertising agencies without revealing the Pentagon's role. Documents show that the intended target of the article on a democratic Iraq was Azzaman, a leading independent newspaper, but it is not known whether it was published there or anywhere else.
Even as the State Department and the United States Agency for International Development pay contractors millions of dollars to help train journalists and promote a professional and independent Iraqi media, the Pentagon is paying millions more to the Lincoln Group for work that appears to violate fundamental principles of Western journalism.

This is the type of commentary you are reading in the U.S. papers, they are also complaining that these stories don't tell both sides of the story, but what the US papers reporting of this story are either failing to tell you, or are burrying at the end of the article, the fact that many of these supposed planted stories are shaded in a different color and listed at the top of the page as advertisements. I suppose that the LA Times and the NYTimes would have complained that the "Voice of America" was paid to broadcast pro american radio into the former Soviet Union and it was unfair because it wasn't broadcasting Stalin's point of view.

Michael Jackson, Why you being a Hater?

It's becoming clearer every day that unless you are either a) eight years old, b) named Emmanuel Lewis, or c) you are eight years old, Michael Jackson will probably hate you. Last week Jackson was revealed as a jew-hater when Good Morning America played voice mails of his anti-Semitic slurs. And now he's apparently anti-Italian as well.
In a recently released voice message from late 2002 or early 2003, Jackson slammed record mogul Tommy Mottola, saying, "I'm very concerned. I don't trust that man. He thinks he's God. He thinks he's Italian Mafia." The lawyer for Jackson's former business partner said "He's [Jackson] a homophobe, anti-Semite, really anti-everybody."

Other reports also followed that at this point Jackson may be downing as much as 10 Xanax as well as other pills per day and some state his family are worried he is so doped up his American Business might be in trouble. My own personal view on Jackson hating everybody?...I figure it's fair, most normal people (i.e. non-molesting people with at least 80% of their origional faces) have hated him for years.

50 Cent sings Hava Nagila

If you always thought 50 Cent was pretty hardcore how would you feel if you found out he performed at Long Island defense contractor David H. Brooks' daughter's bat mitzvah.
"For his estimated $500,000, I hear that 50 Cent performed only four or five songs - and badly - though he did manage to work in the lyric, "Go shorty, it's your bat miztvah, we gonna party like it's your bat mitzvah."
At one point, I'm told, one of Fitty's beefy bodyguards blocked shots of his boss performing and batted down the kids' cameras, shouting "No pictures! No pictures!" - even preventing Brooks' personal videographers and photographers from capturing 50 Cent's bat-miztvah moment."

Other people performing were Don Henley, Kenny G, Stevie Nicks, etc... I'm not sure what it does for Fiddy's street cred to be hired to entertain a little girl for her party. But I'm sure he and Kenny G had lots to talk about.

I never want to hear about them again dammit

If you thought that Nick & Jessica stories were over just because they've split up, think again. Apparently the two were so sure they'd be together forever that they didn't sign a prenuptial agreement. And since Jessica made most of the money, with around $35 million just last year, she could end up paying Nick a mountain of cash. Therefore she's hired divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who handled Angelina Jolie's divorce from Billy Bob Thornton.

OK, now I watched a few episodes of that nightmare reality show that they did together. What I saw was a fairly normal guy, who did his own laundry, knew how to cook and take care of himself, tried not to overspend, married to a girl who couldn't tie her own shoes, whines all the time and apparently had a father that she needed to flirt with to get spending money. Is it wrong of me to hope that Nick walks away with enough money to buy his own island and Jessica has enough to buy a used Toyota Tercell and a 3-pack of Hello Kitty Thongs at Wal-Mart?
