Paula Abdul will probably be the fourth X-Factor judge

By brendon April 25, 2011 @ 3:45 PM


As Simon Cowell closes in on the final two to fill out the judges panel for the American version of the X Factor, it’s clear he wants a mix of personalities, ranging from the cool respected professional (LA Reid) to the emotionally unstable drunk (guess).

“I’ve always wanted Paula,” Cowell told Deadline. “Always been very vocal about that. I missed her the second she left the show ["American Idol"]. Always loved working with her even though she can be a pain. And I’ve been consistent about this. I don’t know what it is about her, but I’ve always clicked with her. You just have to get that chemistry, and she’s right. I’ve never found anyone better than her. I think there’s a good chance it will be her. We’ve agreed that we would meet as many people as possible, and now we’re reaching the deadline we’ve got to make the decision soon. But I think she’s got a really good shot.”

So the four judges will probably be Simon, Reid, Paula and Cheyl Cole from the British version of Factor. Which means it won’t be long until we see Paula drunk and telling a losing contestant, “You’ve just been X-Factored!”, because she doesn’t really understand what the deal is here.

Charlie Sheen got dumped by Bree Olson

By brendon April 25, 2011 @ 1:51 PM


If there’s one thing I know about porn stars, it’s that they’re perfect girlfriend material. Steady as a rock, they are. So I was surprised when pictures of Charlie Sheen on his Torpedo of Truth tour last week only showed him with one goddess, only one of his two girlfriends, and zero hot ones. Where was Bree Olson?

That was rhetorical, by the way. She went home, and she went on twitter.

“It feels SO GOOD to be home! I was very homesick so it’s good to be back with my family and friends. I love home, Dr.Sniffles & you guys!”

And now Sheen says she’s officially broken up with him, he got punked by Dr. Sniffles, and she did in a text message no less. The Hollywood Reporter says

The actor kicked off the show by revealing that one of his goddesses, Rachel “Bree” Olson, had broken up with him via text message. During the Q&A session later, one fan asked Sheen how he handled two women at once without turning to polygamy. He replied, “Not well, because one left.”

Not only did he get dumped, but he had to give away tickets to this show in Ft. Lauderdale, and even then it was only about a third full. Aww, poor Charlie. Looks like someone could use a pick-me-up bouquet. It has a teddy bear holding a heart!

Nicole Scherzinger is a good dancer

By brendon April 25, 2011 @ 9:26 AM


Nicole Scherzinger dressed up like a sexy Indian and danced around this weekend to shoot the video for ‘Right There’, the first single from her new solo album. Back when she was in the Pussycat Dolls, people would say the band wasn’t very good but she was the best one. Of course one of the reasons the band wasn’t very good is because she was in it. It was a “good news – bad news” kind of thing.

Rachel Bilson is in a bikini

By brendon April 25, 2011 @ 9:25 AM


Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen are apparently not broken up like they’re supposed to be, and to prove it this weekend they were on the beach in Barbados.

If you don’t know, Rachel is the perfect looking one in the red bikini. Hayden is the pasty one with a sunken chest and ropy little arms, the one who looks weak inside and out. He’s probably gonna want to punch me after publicly insulting him in front of his girlfriend like this, but luckily Hayden Christensen is a pussy so I don’t foresee a problem.

Lindsay was stunned when she got 120 days in jail

By brendon April 25, 2011 @ 9:25 AM


When Judge Stephanie Sautner reduced Lindsay Lohans felony theft charge to a misdemeanor at around 2:00 on Friday afternoon, Lindsay was on top of the world, no doubt thinking she had beaten the system once again and nothing could ever take her down.

About 30 minutes later she got taken down, when Judge Sautner ruled that Lindsay had violated her probation and sentenced her to 120 days in jail and 480 hours of community service (360 in a womens shelter and 120 in a morgue). If this math is consistent, Lindsay will likely end up serving about 24 days in jail, 6 more than she would have served if she had taken a plea. She’s expected to appeal this decision, and for now she’s out on $75,000 bail.

But what can you really expect when you show nothing but contempt for the court, repeatedly break the law and violate your probation? In Lindsays case you expect to go home like nothing ever happened.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us she was under the impression she’d be going home after the hearing … and was “blindsided” when she got sentenced. We’re told Lindsay described the situation as “ridiculous” and “f**ked up.”

“Blindsided” despite the fact that she was warned that, “Judge Sautner would very, very likely sentence Lindsay to jail, ON THE SPOT, for the probation violation.”

But why is all this happening? Is it because of Lindsays 4-year crime spree? Detective Freckles is on the case!

Lindsay Lohan believes prosecutor Danette Meyers is on a “witch hunt” against her … Lindsay believes she’s become a living, breathing press release for Meyers, who is running for L.A. County District Attorney.

Yeah that must be it. That’s what I was thinking too. How is Lindsay supposed to protect herself in a situation like this? All she can really do now is hope that the next time she steals something or get’s a DUI, that she gets a prosecutor who isn’t all uptight, unlike this Meyers, who is being a complete cunt for no reason whatsoever.

Monday morning headlines

By brendon April 25, 2011 @ 5:39 AM


LEANN RIMES AND EDDIE CIBRIAN – got married this weekend in a surprise ceremony at a private home in California. This will make their inevitable cheating that much more exciting. (people)

BEYONCE AND JAY Z – were reportedly set to perform at the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday, but now it seems that’s not the case. William was probably just saying that so people would come. (et)

LADY GAGA – was in Nashville for a concert when one of her fans went into cardiac arrest and had to have her heart restarted after it stopped for 5 minutes. I’m assuming her heart didn’t have a beat because Gaga stole it. (cnn)

RIO – won the weekend for the third week in a row ($26.6M), beating out Madea’s Big Happy Family ($25.7M), Water For Elephants ($17.5M), and Hop ($12.4M). Easter is always a good time for family films. If you wanted a story about a blood soaked zombie with nails in his hands you needed to go to church. (deadline)

ANNALYNNE MCCORD – was at Wet Republic in Vegas this weekend, and she wore this denim jacket and dress over her bikini. Was she doing that to hide bruises on her knees and back and shoulders? Sorry, but a gentleman never tells. (wenn)

Mel Gibson has finally done an interview

By brendon April 22, 2011 @ 12:27 PM


Okay I’m still deathly ill, I may or may not tap out for today, but it’s very much worth mentioning that Mel Gibson has finally spoken about the tapes that leaked online 9 months ago, the ones where he was able to expand on his earlier rantings and offend all the groups he didn’t have time to insult when he got pulled over for drunk driving.

Alison Hope Weiner (tee-hee!) of Deadline writes…

WEINER: Were people angry at you about what you said on tapes?
GIBSON: I was angry at me.  But, no one expressed any anger at me.  They may have felt it. 
WEINER: Do you feel regret over what you said on the tapes?
GIBSON:  Of course. 
WEINER: After the tapes ended up on line, many people asked themselves how could someone who’s been around this long and knows the business managed to get into a position where so much of their private life ended up on line? Did you ever think that those private conversations would eventually get out? 
GIBSON: [Looks at the ceiling and shakes his head and sighs] Who anticipates being recorded?  Who anticipates that?   Who could anticipate such a personal betrayal?
WEINER: People didn’t understand how you could say the things you did on these tapes.  They wondered, what kind of person says those things.  Right now, many people think you’re a racist and that you hate women from listening to those tapes.
GIBSON: I’ve never treated anyone badly or in a discriminatory way based on their gender, race, religion or sexuality — period. I don’t blame some people for thinking that though, from the garbage they heard on those leaked tapes, which have been edited.  You have to put it all in the proper context of being in an irrationally, heated discussion at the height of a breakdown, trying to get out of a really unhealthy relationship. It’s one terribly, awful moment in time, said to one person, in the span of one day and doesn’t represent what I truly believe or how I’ve treated people my entire life.

It’s hard to believe that Gibson could have the very long and successful career he had, generally with an excellent reputation, if he really was the raving asshole we heard on the tapes, but some people will still believe he is. Just like there’s no proof that dinosaurs or the stock market exists, yet people still believe in that. Gullible rubes.

“Three points for Gryffindor!”

By brendon April 21, 2011 @ 5:00 PM


You know how, in the Harry Potter movies, when they were in class, Hermione Granger would always have the answer whenever the teacher asked a question? Okay well now picture that but with Hermione looking vaguely lesbian, because Emma Watson, who of course played Hermione, has been attending Brown University for the past years, and…

A source says Watson didn’t shy away from class participation and often would “answer something in class and get it right,” calling the 21-year-old actress “really smart.” Unfortunately, this brought out the sophisticated wit and cinematic expertise of her Ivy League peers.
According to the source, her classmates “would respond [to her answer] with a quote from ‘Harry Potter.’” The most popular choice was “Three points for Gryffindor!”

Oh that poor girl. This is upsetting, I can’t believe that college students were making jokes that were juvenile and stupid. I don’t appreciate that kind of humor.

(NOTE: I apologize for the lack of posting today, btw. I have some kind of food poisoning, I’ve spent the day shivering and sweating, and twice I died. Once for 8 minutes. That can’t be good for you.)
