Oh dear. "I feel like a guy." "I feel kind of wrong." " I'm young!" I can see where this is going. Pretty soon she'll be doing lines with Paris and ditching her panties. Hilary, don't do it, you are a nice girl. That kind of behavior is so yesterday. So yesterday.
Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton 31, and boyfriend Jade Jones, 27 are expecting a child. "I guess I will be handing over the 'Baby' tag now to a deserving little new owner," she said in a statement. I guess he took a break from going "Downtown."
K-FED AD INSULTS FAST FOOD WORKERS
Kevin Federline may want to think twice before eating at McDonalds. The soon-to be ex husband of Britney Spears and wannabe rapper incurring the anger of the fast-food industry with a soon-to-be aired commercial for Nationwide Insurance.
The commercial which runs on Super Bowl Sunday shows K-Fed fantasizing about being a big-time rapper — but is actually a short order cook at a fast food joint. Federline says the commercial attempts to make fun of his own image. But a top executive at the National Restaurant Association doesn't see it that way. She blasts the ad as "demeaning and unpleasant" to the nations nearly 13 million restaurant employees. "It shouldn't be necessary for a company to disrespect others to get its point across," restaurant rep Annika Stensson told the New York Post.
A Nationwide spokesman defends the K-Fed commercials. "It's a humorous take on one person's life. The focus of the ad is the element of surprise, not the setting of fast-food restaurants.
Oh yeah, right. They're making fun of the element of surprise only. Let's just see what our friend the Geico Caveman has to say about that.
Geico Caveman: "What if he woke up as an insurance company spokesman?"
Nationwide Spokesman: "Well , that wouldn't be funny."
Geico Caveman: "Why? Because insurance company spokesmen are smart?"
Nationwide Spokesman: "No."
Geico Caveman: "Because insurance company spokesmen make over minimum wage?"
"Nationwide Spokesman: "Um, dude, you do realize that YOU are also an insurance company spokesman, right?"
Geico Caveman: "Oh right. I guess I'm outta here then. SCREW YOU FAST FOOD WORKERS!! LOOO-SERS!!!"
George Clooney and Pamela Anderson have become Hollywood's most unlikely couple after the pair was spotted frolicking together on a romantic, fun dinner date.
The Oscar winner booked a private room at Sherman Oaks, California restaurant the Valley Inn, and entertained the former Baywatch babe there on January 7, according to reports.
Since that evening, which ended with Anderson sitting on her date's lap, the odd couple has been spotted out and about, enjoying dog walks together.
A pal says: "George and Pam have been determined to keep this one quiet."
I can't believe it took almost ten days for this story to break. Everyone is very shocked by this. I can kind of see why. It's like the Class President going out with the ditzy, big-boobed cheerleader. But in defense of Pammy, just don't say "Why her, she's such a slut!" because I'm sure his number is just as high, if not higher. Oh wait, I'm sorry, he's a guy.
OMGYGLOLLLKL;;!!!!!111111!! I'm so excited!! Tonight I get to meet my favorite wrestler/current #1 spot on my laminated list, the Rated R Superstar, Edge!! He's doing a meet & greet a local mall with Randy Orton (not so excited about him, I hear he poops in women's gym bags).
Yes, I am aware of how corny that sounds and that I am nearly 30 years old, but I bet if it were George Clooney, somehow it would be ok right? Thought so, bite me!
Right now I'm working on a wedding sack so I can take him down, Borat-style. It's either that or molest him like Shawn Michaels did on RAW last Monday. I haven't decided yet.

January 26, 2007 -- HOW ridiculous can "reality" TV get? Producer Kevin Blatt is shopping a show in which 10 young men "medically verified" to be virgins compete for the chance to lose their cherries to "a celeb." In what's billed as "Big Brother meets Howard Stern," contestants will be locked in a house where they must abstain from any form of sexual activity while their every move is monitored. Viewers vote to eliminate the losers one by one until there's one virgin left.
I can't imagine what celebrity would be willing to do this. It would have to be porn star. Or Screech.
I wonder how they are going to medically verify these guys. What can they do? Check to see if they are wearing Spiderman briefs? Hook sensors up to their penises and see if they get aroused while watching The Wrath of Khan?
Rosie O'Donnell felt so bad for the way Jonathan Jayne and Kenneth Briggs (you know, "bushbaby" and his large friend) were treated on American Idol (not to mention wanting to keep her name in the news) that she gave them both a backstage tour of the View (just what they always wanted I'm sure) and all-expense paid trips to Disney World. That was pretty nice of Rosie. Now they can feel better about themselves when they see the people dressed up as Goofy for a living.
TOKYO (AP) — Michael Jackson is back in the United States after living in Bahrain, France and Ireland. He emerged with his spokeswoman Friday to confirm to The Associated Press that he is back after more than a year in self-imposed exile following his acquittal in a high-profile child molestation trial that ended in June 2005.
They also said he is on the comeback trail — planning a pair of "fan appreciation events" in Japan in March, one of which will charge $3,300 for the opportunity to meet the Gloved One.
"I can confirm that he is in the United States," spokeswoman Raymone K. Bain said. "We don't give out information regarding our client's whereabouts because of safety, and this is just an ongoing policy." [Me: Is that for his safety or the American children's?]
During the brief conference call, Jackson read a statement prepared for The Associated Press about his plans to visit Japan and allowed only one question: How are you?
"I'm fine, thank you," was his reply.
SOURCE AND CONTINUED
I don't see how it would be that hard to find him. My guess would be that you can find him at a grammar school, Chuck E. Cheese, or a NAMBLA meeting.
Oh, and $3,300 to meet that freak? For that much, you'd better be able to keep the nose!

' LOS ANGELES - Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman and seven other people suffered minor injuries on a movie set on Thursday after the car they were riding in crashed into a light pole, police said.
All eight of the injured, including Kidman, were taken to a local hospital for examination after the accident, which occurred at about 1am (9.00pm Thursday NZT), Los Angeles police spokeswoman Karen Smith said.
Smith said all eight people were released from the hospital and did not suffer major injuries.
The Los Angeles Police Department will likely conduct a routine traffic accident investigation into the crash, which occurred while a stunt driver was at the wheel of the car, she said.
Celebrity news program Extra reported that in addition to Kidman, the injured included three other actors, a camera crew and several stuntmen. According to Extra the accident happened during filming of the thriller The Invasion. '
The following statement was released:OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON KIDMAN ACCIDENT
There was an accident involving a rigged camera vehicle on the set of THE INVASION Wednesday night (1/24/07) in Los Angeles. Nicole Kidman was in the vehicle at the time of the accident and was taken to the hospital for evaluation. She was released shortly thereafter. No other actors were involved in the scene at the time of the incident. Two additional crew members sustained minor injuries as a result of the collision. The production took the appropriate steps following the incident to ensure the safety of the cast and crew. Production resumed Wednesday evening and Kidman will return to the set on Thursday, January 25.
Billboard.com reported yesterday that ' a contract could be signed as soon as today for Live Nation to produce a 40-date amphitheatre tour by Van Halen this summer, with original frontman David Lee Roth back in the fold for the first time in more than 20 years.
As previously reported, guitarist Eddie Van Halen's 15-year-old son Wolfgang has stepped in for original bassist Michael Anthony in the new incarnation of the group, which also features drummer Alex Van Halen.
"I see it absolutely as an inevitability," Roth told Billboard.com last May of a potential reunion with his ex-bandmates. "To me, it's not rocket surgery. It's very simple to put together. And as far as hurt feelings and water under the dam, like what's-her-name says to what's-her-name at the end of the movie 'Chicago' -- 'So what? It's showbiz!' So I definitely see it happening." '
The couple "have decided to separate after five years of marriage," the actress's rep said in a statement Wednesday. "They have requested that they be allowed their privacy at this time."
Laffoon, 33, and Heche, 37, wed in 2001, and have a 4-year-old son, Homer.
Entertainment Tonight has reported that the Men in Trees actress is romantically involved with her costar, James Tupper. Heche's rep had no comment on the relationship. Tupper split from his wife in November, according to ET. His rep had no comment when reached by PEOPLE. '

A source recently told STAR MAGAZINE: “Kevin has tried to convince Britney to check herself into rehab from every possible angle. First he tried threatening to take away the kids, then he tried pleading with her to take care of herself.” This mystery source then continued,“They’re being raised by strangers. He told Britney to get help before it’s too late.”
I hope it's true for Matilda's sake. The kids gonna get enough grief for having that name, at least now she won't be a bastard on top of it. (Just kidding, I love these two and hope they are [privately] happy together.) Congrats![/whisper]
' Perky talk show host Rachael Ray made disparaging racial remarks about the woman who gave Ray her big shot at daytime TV -- none other than Oprah Winfrey, according to TMZ sources. It's a shocking account of a dinner that occurred during the period that the show was being sold.
Rewind to December 3, 2005. Ray was at the Century City Shopping Mall in Los Angeles for a book signing. Reps from King World, the production company that was syndicating the show, were shooting the event for its sales presentation.
At around 7:00 PM, Ray, along with seven others, went to Houston's Restaurant in the mall. They sat in a booth in the far right rear of the restaurant. Ray ordered fish and complained to the table it was dry. She was also drinking red wine and lots of it -- one source says a minimum of four big glasses.
"Why is she wearing slave drag? She obviously has problems being black."
We're told Ray became "extremely loud and aggressive," and began dissing Oprah. Sources say she told the group about a portrait of Oprah that sits in the lobby of Harpo Productions in Chicago. It's from the movie "Beloved" and shows Winfrey's back, enhanced with scars. She's also wearing a skirt from the slavery era.
Back at the table, sources say Ray launched into attack mode: "Why is she wearing slave drag? She obviously has problems being black."
But Oprah wasn't Ray's only target. Sources say she told the group how much she liked Jennifer Aniston and then called Brad Pitt a "pussy boy." But her harshest comments were reserved for Angelina Jolie, calling her "a skanky, backdoor c**t."
TMZ contacted the Director of Publicity for Rachael Ray, Charlie Dougiello, who said, "Rachael did attend the dinner referenced and enjoyed wine and good conversation with friends and colleagues. She denies making any of the comments referenced. In fact, there are several words that are attributed to Rachael that she has never uttered in her life."
Dougiello added, "Neither in public nor in private has Rachael made a disparaging or cruel remark about her friend and mentor, Oprah, nor a celebrity couple she has never even met."
Dougiello also said, "There were several associates of Rachael's at that table who, unprompted, agreed that Rachael never made any of the comments she is being accused of making... and it seems very convenient that these accusations are being levied at a time when Rachael's success has focused the public eye on her." '
That's the problem with being a celebrity, you can't get drunk and run your mouth. Didn't she learn anything from Mel Gibson?

' January 23, 2007 -- JENNIFER Aniston is very close to her best friend, Courtney Cox Arquette - and she's about to get even closer. Aniston is guest-starring in Arquette's FX show, "Dirt," playing her archenemy, a rival tabloid editor. But even better, according to Michael Ausiello of TVGuide.com, "Aniston's character is a lesbian. What's more, she won't just mouth off to Cox's tightly wound counterpart; she's going to share a lip lock with her." That should pump up the ratings. Reps for Aniston and Cox didn't return e-mails. '
I don't think an orgy with Joey, Ross, Chandler, Phoebe, Janice, and Ugly Naked Guy can save that awful show.

I'm sure you woke up this morning and wondered "Are Britney and Isaac still together or not? That's if you were able to sleep at all, tossing and turning over it.
No fear insomniacs! Star Magazine is here to help:
' On Thursday evening Britney Spears was telling photographers that she and her new beau, model Isaac Cohen, were "not together," but as Star first reported, Isaac thinks they are very much on! In a candid interview on Friday, he insisted to Star, "everything is fine."
And just a few hours later, on Friday, Britney and Isaac, both 25, visited a recording studio in Hollywood and hours later arrived--separately--to hip nightclub Cabana Club in Hollywood. "They were definitely together all night," a source tells Star. "But what was weird is that they left together. At 3 a.m. Isaac walked Britney out to her car and said goodbye and she drove off."
Britney was dressed in the same jeans she was wearing the day before, but this time paired them not with an Ed Hardy jacket but a sexy black silk camisole. What was unusual is Brit did not look disheveled or drunk--her hair was well groomed and she seemed sober and tranquil, "like she was in a Zen like state," says the source. Isaac was sporting his signature look--a hoodie and that heavy beard. '
It's so funny that the reporter thought the most unusual part was that Britney didn't look like a greasy, drunken mess!

' January 22, 2007 -- THE sizzling secrets of The Vault - the notorious S&M club where thrill-seeking celebs and swingers mingled in the bad old days of the Meatpacking District - are about to be unlocked. Anthony Marini, who owned the dungeon-like venue from 1992-2001, is shopping a tell-all book that he says will name names and blow the lid off scandals involving the rich and famous and the NYPD.
"Some of it is so controversial, there's going to be heat," Marini told Page Six. "It goes into police corruption. I have cops getting involved with transvestites - one who was a beat cop and is still on the force now as a lieutenant. And I'm going to name him."
He says a prominent art figure once paid two NYPD cops in full uniform to beat him. "And I have documents showing how the mob set up a phony holding company to take over the Vault building during the redevelopment of the West Side Highway area and swindle the state out of $2 million."
The Vault, which occupied the space at 14th Street and Ninth Avenue that's now Stephen Hanson's popular Italian restaurant Vento, was where singles and couples, straights and gays got naked and played bondage and spanking games. But after Madonna shot parts of her "Sex" book there, it became a trendy, more mainstream celebrity hangout.
"Lillo Brancato, the 'Sopranos' actor charged with murdering a cop, was here every week. Heather Locklear came - she would get a foot massage. Robert Downey Jr. and Corey Feldman came in," Marini recalls. "I remember Tommy Lee coming in with Pam Anderson and a Pam Anderson look-alike and going up to the couples-only floor and playfully whipping and spanking them - not too hard - as he drank Champagne." Reps for Lee and Anderson did not return Page Six's calls. "
One night," Marini says an A-list Hollywood male star "was here. The paparazzi were outside and we knew we had to get him out. So we put him in a long, long coat and a hat and had him walk out the back door with a bag of garbage like one of our porters." '
Not to be outdone, Justin rebounded (hahaha! I'm so clever!) by playing some basketball with (former hook-up) Alyssa Milano and (where's Tony?) Eva Longoria:
FROM PEOPLE: ' After his Friday night concert at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Timberlake, 25, hit the Jet nightclub with his entourage, where he danced with Milano, 34, and chatted with Longoria, 31. At 4:00 a.m. the whole crew headed to an after-after party at the Palms' Hardwood Suite in the hotel's new 347-room Fantasy Tower. The $25,000-a-night, 10,000-square suite features an indoor basketball court, complete with scoreboard and locker room. "Justin played basketball for quite a while with Eva and Alyssa," says a source. He and about 100 other revelers "stayed there for a couple hours." '
Also preggers is Keri Russell (you know, Felicity). This is Keri's first child with fiancé Shane Deary. Note to Keri: Whatever you do throughout this pregnancy, DON'T cut your hair, people will care even less!
