Kirsten Dunst Is Lying

Kirsten says she checked into the Cirque Lodge in Utah for depression, not substance abuse.

“I didn’t go to Cirque Lodge for alcohol abuse or drug abuse,” she says. “I went there for depression … It was a good six months before I decided to go away. I was struggling, and I had the opportunity to go somewhere and take care of myself. I was fortunate to have the resources to do it. My friends and family thought it was a good idea, too. But I didn’t know where to go. My doctor recommended Cirque Lodge.”

As to why she’s speaking out now?

“There’s been a lot of misrepresentation about what is going on in my life, and it’s been very painful for my friends and family,” she says. “Everyone feels like they have to defend me. They hear the rumors, and it puts them in a defensive position. Now that I’m feeling stronger, I was prepared to say something.”

While naysayers out there may groan that a young, wealthy Hollywood starlet should have nothing to be depressed about, Dunst says mental illness doesn’t know any such boundaries. “We’re all in the same boat together,” she opines. “Depression is pretty serious and should not be gossiped about.”

Now, I’m not saying Kirsten didn’t suffer from depression, but as far as I know, the Cirque Lodge is exclusively for drug and alcohol rehab. Their website says nothing about dealing with mental health issues outside the scope of substance abuse.

So, um, yeah. I call bullshit. Kirsten’s drinking and drugging again, and she just doesn’t want to hear shit from the press about a relapse when she chooses to do it in public.

Lindsay Lohan Lashes Out at Perez

I do try to keep Perez off this site as often as possible, but I couldn’t resist posting this MySpace correspondence Lindsay Lohan had with blogger/famewhore Jonathan Jackson. No one hates Perez more than his fellow gays!

Loves it.

Oh, and I love how her MySpace profile is

I remember at one point that was her MySpace screenname. I changed mine to “Privacy Cunt,” too, just to jump on the bandwagon, and got a million emails like “WTF?” Ha ha. I’d forgotten about that.

Brangelina Purchase French Estate

Word on the street is that Brad and Angie have plunked down a cool $60 mil to purchase an estate in the south of France.

Sixty million dollars!!!!

That is a LOT of dollars, people!!!

It’s a 1,000-acre estate with 35 bedrooms, a vineyard, lake, forest and moat.

Thirty-five bedrooms???? Jesus, how many kids are they planning to have???

Also: I would kill for a house with a moat. It’s what I always dreamed of. When I built sandcastles as a kid, they had to have a moat. Moats are so cool. I wonder if Brad and Angelina will let me go swimming in their moat. Or maybe it’ll have evil sting rays to keep out the paparazzi.

“It’s called Chateau Miraval in a village called Brignol, which is near from Aix-en-Provence,” says a source. “And it’s absolutely unbelievable. Brad and Angelina are thrilled, they love the place and have already been furniture shopping to fill the place as it’s massive. They’ve already spent almost another million on furniture and the whole family can’t wait to move in.”

Oh, I want their life.
