Hayden Panettiere’s Dad Arrested for Kicking Her Mom’s Ass

See? Hollywood gets you every time. Even if you, like Hayden Panettiere, spend your entire career wearing underwear, staying sober and saving whales, your dad'll turn around and punch your mom in the face a couple times in the middle of the night. Nobody gets to be perfect anymore. Alan Panettiere, father of Heroes star Hayden Panettiere, was arrested early Monday morning for allegedly hitting his wife, Lesley Panettiere, when the couple got into an argument after attending a party. Sgt. Sco...

Keeping My Promise

Well, the women of USA gymnastics may have spent the day breaking ankles, stepping out of bounds, falling on their asses and off uneven bars, but Michael Phelps was busy winning his second gold medal in Beijing today in the men's 400m freestyle relay. So here's your picture of his pubic bones. Yummmmm. Interestingly enough, Phelps actually didn't win his split of the relay -- the real hero here was Jason Lezak, who made a phenomenal comeback against France in the final split to win the who...

Disabilities Groups Plan to Boycott Tropic Thunder

As I mentioned earlier in the week, I had the opportunity to see the absolutely hilarious Tropic Thunder at the press screening and I LOVED it.

His wife found him unconscious near a treadmill in their home. The treadmill was still running. Hayes was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead shortly after 2 pm. The cause of death has not been releas...

America Ferrera Is Every Bit as Sick of Hearing About Gossip Girl as You Are

Here's an amusing clip from Good Day LA, where America Ferrera and Blake Lively are on to discuss Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but the conversation instead goes to Gossip Girl. America is unamused. Hey, America, at least you still have a hit TV show. When the first installment of this movie came out, no one had heard of America Ferrera or Blake Lively. Rather, Amber Tamblyn and Alexis Bledel were the young starlets with careers on the rise. Oh, how the tables have turned. /> Here's an amusing clip from Good Day LA, where America Ferrera and Blake Lively are on to discuss Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but the conversation instead goes to Gossip Girl.
