Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Duff’s Dad in the Slammer

This came out of left field.

Hilary Duff’s dad has been jailed for 10 days for violating the terms of his divorce. I guess he started selling off assets he wasn’t supposed to and was essentially jailed for contempt of court. Hilary’s parents have been in divorce proceedings now for a while and the whole thing came to a head when Hilary’s mom asked for $25,000 to throw Hilary a 21st birthday party.

Um, isn’t she really rich and famous. I mean…at that point don’t you just pay for your own birthday party or do it in Vegas and get somebody else to pay for it?

Seriously. Lindsay Lohan, Hilary Duff and Hayden Panettiere’s fathers have all been in jail at one time or another. Forget about these girls going off the handle, we need to worry about their crazy parents.

It is really sad what happens to these families when their kids get famous.

Nadal is Not Changing His Look

Rafael Nadal has decided not to wear the new “look” that Nike developed for this year’s US Open. On first glance, this doesn’t look like a big story except as somebody who goes to the US Open this is a huge coup. Nike most likely developed a whole line of clothes that would be sold in their stores after he most-likely wins the title this year. Yikes.

Nike is trying to make Nadal into a more “proper” tennis player which makes me mad. Ever since he came onto the scene with his manpris (or as my boyfriend says, shants) and sleeveless t-shirts I have really been a fan. He is Spanish, he is sexy and who really cares what a tennis player wears if he can bring some serious championships? I understand the whole “tennis fashion” thing. Venus Williams is actually wearing designs from her own line at this year’s open. For those players, however, who just want to rock out their own style more power to them.

Go Nadal Go!

Take it to the Bridge

Even though I no longer write for the Beet I often send the Beet weird stuff I find on the internet because my brief blogging career lead to a bit of an internet gossip addiction. To add fuel to the fire I got an iPhone from my new job that I mainly use to constantly refresh Evil Beet Gossip, sorry work. It is a problem I tell you…until Beet goes out of town and and I can share some of my love with you…

I never introduced myself properly to y’all because I am actually in the field of entertainment and have shamelessly used some of my friends as tips. Oops. If you care, however, who my celebrity “twin” is, check out the video below. Seriously, I think I may during my free time today write “Evil Beet the Musical.”

Lohan is Pissed

Lindsay Lohan departs the Apple Lounge Grand Opening on August 14, 2008

From her MySpace blog:

Current mood: betrayed
Category: Life

If you have something to say to me, say it to my face- that’s what i have believed my whole life- don’t be a coward and say it to others first, let alone all the media in the world- i think we know where the rest of this blog is going…

If you guessed it had to do with my father- then you guessed right! It really hurts, because i have tried- after all that my mother and siblings have gone through, i really tried to make things work- For the hope of having a father again-wanting things to change- even though people have said, some people will forever remain the same.

Having said that- the people were right, and he is yet to change- but this time, without his daughter by his side- He has become a public embaressment and a bully- To my family, my co-workers, my friends, and a girl that means the world to me (its obvious who that is).

He has no idea what is going on in my life because i have chosen not to involve him in it- His recent attack on my life and my loved ones is simply for an ADDICTION THAT HE HAS- FAME. Why he feels the need to comment on anything in my life that i may want to keep private, is beyond comprehension- If he really cared about me and my life, then he would learn to respect my wishes by staying out of it.

Can really blame her. Guy is a total knob. Between this and her girlfriend starting to look human life is looking UP for double L.

It Might Just Indeed Be On…

Hi there.

You may have just read Beet mentioning that I (and maybe EvilT??) are going to fill in for a few posts. Exciting stuff, right? I know, I know, I suck and every time I fill in some big name celebrity dies. So my apologies in advance to the readers AND the dead people.

However, if you don’t mind, I’d like to go off on a slight rant.

I know you guys get a ton of EB telling you about her personal life. From her preferred method of sexual intercourse to how many people Leo peed on in a given day – you probably feel like you’re reasonably well informed on our Beet. I felt that way too.

But given what she told me before she went out of town I’ve got to ask: What is going on with our girl??

Let’s look at the facts.

She used to live in L.A. Now she lives in Seattle. She used to be bleach blonde. Now she’s a vivacious brunette. She used to sit inside and surf the net for porn like some sort of weird deviant. NOW SHE’S HIKING OUTDOORS???

Do you see my concern here? I mean, you think you know someone and then they go off hiking on you. And picking berries?? The Beet I know wouldn’t have risked scratching those perfectly manicured hands to pick a goddamn berry. She would have paid someone to bring the berries to her mountain lair. That was Evil Beet style. Now? I don’t know. I assume she’s off doing pilates in a forest. Clearly the world has turned on its axis.

I guess I’m not mad so much as alarmed. I mean, what’s next? Will she be getting some tribal art on her arm? Perhaps volunteering to help plant trees? I used to call her and she’d be at Les Deux. Now she’s not getting service because she’s “connecting with nature.”

Anyway. That’s all for now. If a gossip story jumps out of my computer today I’ll post something hateful about it. Rest assured I’m NOT going outside today. You ever been to Seattle? It’s like fucking Mordor right now.

Yours in love and loss,

Spiteful Lars
