Tivo alert!! Filming for the latest unnecessary "celebrity" reality show starring Dina Lohan and family will begin next Tuesday in New York City.
Dina, who is also the executive producer, explained the future trainwreck in an interview with People Magazine, "It's about what I do, how you can be successful, and be a single mom and fulfilling your kids' dreams. It won't just be following my family around like other shows. It'll show me cultivating careers, going to soccer practice. Ali going to school and in the studio. It'll encompass everything. Lindsay is a family member and will lend a helping hand if Ali asks her, when she's in the recording studio. We just want it to be real."
Hey Dina, isn't it more like your children fulfilling your dreams? I thought E! already did a show about pageant mothers.
To TMZ's dismay, Britney Spears's lawyer has successfully stopped the videotaping of her deposition today in the progress-report hearing in the custody battle with K-Fed. L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon made the ruling this morning after Brit's lawyer, Thomas Dunlap argued that a leak of the video to the media would cause "undue embarrassment" for the Britney.
He has a point, Britney creates so much embarrassment on her own that any additional embarrassment from any other source would be undue.
I'm hoping someone has a cameraphone.
Paris Hilton's much hyped philanthropic visit to Rwanda has been postponed by the Playing for Good Foundation.
The organization released the following statement:
"Due to the restructuring of the Playing for Good Foundation, the philanthropic trip to Rwanda that the foundation had previously planned with Paris Hilton has been postponed. Paris has been a loyal and gracious supporter of Playing For Good but the foundation has to regrettably reschedule this trip. Playing for Good would like to thank Ms. Hilton for her generosity and her continued support of this initiative and is looking forward to rescheduling the trip with her at a later time."
Word is the people Rwanda have protested her visit. Ok, they didn't but they've certainly been through enough suffering, wouldn't you agree?

Sarah Jessica Parker managed to beat Amy Winehouse and Britney among others for the top "honor." The list was put together from results of a survey of Maxim's readers so those men can feel better about themselves while taking a break from jacking off to photos of half naked women they'd never have a chance with. Seriously, the whole thing is just plain mean. It brings back awful memories of junior high.
Anyway, here's the top five (Britney was so robbed!):

“I’m rooting for the Red Sox in the World Series,” former New York mayor and current Presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani said after a breakfast fund-raiser at Umbria Ristorante in Boston.
Are you fucking kidding me?
His copout (lots of those today huh?) was that he always roots for the American League team.
Ok, if Cleveland made it, I could buy that, but the Red Sox? The New York Yankees arch rival? YOU JUST DON'T DO THAT.
And I'd feel the same way if it were reversed. If you are fan of one of those teams, you don't switch. YOU JUST DON'T DO THAT. Even John Kerry wouldn't do that and he flip-flopped on everything!
Does he honestly think he's going to gain any votes that way? All it shows is that he's a typical politician and will say anything he needs to say to get a vote.
I was never planning to vote for him, but still.
YOU JUST DON'T DO THAT.
Oh happy day!! Pete Doherty has reportedly split from fiancee Irina Lazareanu. Apparently, Pete felt "smothered" and was high out of his mind when he proposed.
A source told The Sun, "He got engaged in a moment of madness when he was off his head before he checked into rehab. Pete's been questioning his sanity ever since. He liked Irina but admits the only reason he got together with her was on the rebound from Kate."
The source added that Iraina was a bit of a Yoko, "Irina turned up in Somerset at the weekend on the set of the video for Babyshambles' new single You Talk. She was always telling Pete what to do and where to go, and in the end he had to tell her it was over. Everyone's happy she's gone - it wasn't doing anything for band relations."
Line starts behind me girls!
Marie Osmond has blamed her fainting spell on Dancing With the Stars (in case you've been living under a rock and haven't seen one of the 76,000 replays, here you go) on the California wildfires.
Marie said, "Right at the beginning…I started getting light-headed. And the only thing I could think of (is) I have allergies, there's almost half a million people being evacuated, the air quality is terrible - and I just couldn't get my breath."
Earlier Marie said it was just something that happens to her every now and then. Then she blamed her drummer for playing the wrong tape. Then acid reflux. But of course, it has to be the wildfires!
Looks like Marie got the sympathy vote as she was declared safe on last night's results show. Samantha Harris got the least number of votes and was sent home.
What? Oh, Mark Cuban? Aw shit!
A source told PEOPLE that Britney Spears and Kevin Federline attended their first court-ordered Parenting Without Conflict session at the Beverly Hills Hotel today.
Parents are encouraged but not required to take the course together. There will be six sessions to the course and it will teach communication skills and cooperative parenting.
Only six sessions? Do they realize who is taking the course?
In addition, Britney is required to complete three individual counseling sessions "to address parenting issues."
Asshat Hollywood has obtained a course outline of the Parenting Without Conflict curriculum:
Session One: "Auto Safety - this does NOT mean letting your infant drive"
Session Two: "Nutrition Part 1 - Red Bull does not give children wings, it gives them cavities"
Session Three: "Nutrition Part 2 - Cheetos do not count as dairy"
Session Four: "When mommy and daddy fight, the only winner is the paparazzi"
Session Five: "How to prepare your children for the ridicule they will face from their peers thanks to having asshats like you for parents"
Session Six: "Auto Safety - this does NOT mean letting your infant drive (just making sure..)"
Soprano's creator David Chase has finally broken his silence regarding the ending of the Sopranos finale. In an interview in the upcoming book, The Sopranos: The Complete Book, Chase says that Tony did NOT get killed when the screen went black.
"There are no esoteric clues in there. No Da Vinci Code," he said. Chase went on to say that he as surprised that fans wanted Tony to die. "They had gleefully watched him rob, kill, pillage, lie and cheat. They had cheered him on. And then, all of a sudden, they wanted to see him punished for all that. They wanted 'justice' ... The pathetic thing -- to me -- was how much they wanted HIS blood, after cheering him on for eight years."
Geez, way to take it seriously dude. That's how it works moron! All the bad guys you root for have to get it at the end. Could you imagine what a pussy move it would have been if Tony Montana didn't die at the end of Scarface?
He totally meant for Tony to die. What was with all that "everything just goes black" stuff? I think with all the Sex and the City hoopla, David's thinking movie.
Why do I care? I guess I'm pathetic.

Where'd they get the snow in New York City anyway? Is Lindsay Lohan in this movie?
Jim Farber of the New York Daily News is among the first critics to get in some good zingers about Britney Spears' appropriately titled new album, Blackout.
Here are some excerpts of Jim's review:
"She comes off like some machine that bleeps and bloops out an airy array of oohs, ahhs and groans."
"If a blowup sex doll could sing, this is what she'd sound like."
"In terms of studio trickery, Paris Hilton's album was practically Unplugged compared to this."
But Jim is a fan of blow-up dolls: "She may no longer dance with flair, lip-sync on cue, keep her dress down, or even be judged a suitable mom, but Britney Spears can still turn up on some slammin' new songs. Think about this: How wonderful it is that, in the world of slick pop, even if stars can't deliver, the machine behind them still can."
Album of the Year!! You wait.
Unfortunately, it's not a joke. Paris wants to live forever so she has invested a large of money in Cryonics Institute, a suspended animation cemetery. She also wants to have her dogs Tinkerbell and Cinderella preserved with her.
"It's so cool," Paris said. "Almost all the cells in the body are still alive when death is pronounced. And if you're immediately cooled, you can be perfectly preserved. My life could be extended by hundreds and thousands of years."
This is like a bad horror movie.
Paris also reflected on her past party girl ways (in case you haven't heard, she's a philanthropist now), "Before, my life was about having fun, going to parties - it was a fantasy. But when I had time to reflect, I felt empty inside. I want to leave a mark on the world."
Oh Paris, you already have.
So the premiere of The Next Great American Band was pretty underwhelming but there were a few high points. One of them was a band called Light Of Doom. They are a group of 12 year old kids that cover Iron Maiden.
That's pretty fucking awesome to me.
Jermaine Dupri has written an autobiography (sure to be a best-seller!) titled Young, Rich and Dangerous (this is an autobiography?). In the book Jermaine blasts Timberfuck for not sticking up for girlfriend Janet Jackson during Nipplegate.
He also puts down Justin's looks: "I think Justin Timberlake is a talented performer. But he's very ordinary-looking. He could be any skinny white kid from the suburbs of Orlando. You could go to the mall and find another Justin. He doesn't make his style interesting even when he's onstage. To me, he just doesn't look like a star."
Normally I'm all for a good Timberfuck bashing, but coming from Jermaine Dupri? This isn't even a case of the pot calling the kettle black, it's more like the troll doll doggie chew toy out in the shed taunting the kettle, but the kettle can't hear it because the troll doll is so far away. (Yeah, I have no idea what I'm saying.)
Kid Rock was arrested on charges of misdemeanor battery early Sunday morning after getting into an altercation at a..wait for it......Waffle House in DeKalb County, Georgia.
So Kid was chowing on some healthy grub after a show when a man named Harlem DeJon Akins recognized a woman in sitting with him and started speaking with her. Shortly after Kid intervened,a fight broke out between the two men. Five additional men that were with Rock also got involved in the fight which moved from the restaurant to the parking lot but not before a window was broken (by Akins) and maple syrup had gotten everywhere.
After the fight, Kid and his crew took off in their tour bus. The bus was stopped about a mile from the restaurant and Kid and then five men were taken into custody and charged with battery. He posted a $1000 bond and was released later that day around 5 p.m.
Akins was charged with second-degree criminal damage to property for breaking the window at the Waffle house which was valued at $500. And that there's a felony charge. You don't fuck with the Waffle House!
