26Quotables

“I should have toned up for ‘Transformers’ but I’m really lazy. I had to put on weight. I’d lost a lot of weight and got really scrawny, but I was told I had to put on size for ‘Transformers’ because Michael [Bay, the director] doesn’t like skinny girls … I have a serious sugar tooth, so now I eat red-velvet cake before I go to bed every night, and if you eat meals later, you’ll put on weight faster, so I had dinner at 10 p.m.”

Super-hottie Megan Fox, about how she transitioned from her ultra-skinny look for Jennifer’s Body to a larger look for the Transformers sequel.

54Suing Perez Per Usual

I was wondering when this shit was gonna start getting him in trouble.

Perez Hilton (aka Mario Lavandeira) is being sued for $25 million for posting the name and email address of someone who sent him an email he didn’t like. The post is viewable here, and this is what he posted:

On 12/27/07, Diane Wargo (dwargo@menorahpark.org) wrote:

Perez you are a FAT GAY PIG! Angelina is a ugly whore! You love her because she is a fag lover! Her brother is a gay little jerk just like your fat ugly ass! MANGELINA is a digusting gross skank!

Um, so obviously these aren’t very nice things to say. But here’s what her lawyer has to say about it:

According to the Complaint, after Wargo sent an email challenging Hilton’s opinion, she received derogatory emails with crass language back from PerezHilton.com at her work email address. When those emails kept coming, despite requests to stop, Wargo emailed back with the same type of crass language that is typical of the PerezHilton.com website. Wargo hoped that by using the same type of language, she would get her point across in a way that was typical for PerezHilton.com. Because of the express terms and conditions posted on PerezHilton.com, she knew – or at least thought she knew – that her comments would never be publically attributed to her without her consent.

But, according to the Complaint, Hilton ignored his own Conditions of Use and Privacy Notice, and published not only Wargo’s email without the preceding emails and her full name, but also her work
email address that identified the name of her employer and her employer’s website domain name. By doing so, Hilton unleashed his readers on Wargo and her employer. On the same day that Hilton published her private information, hundreds of emails flooded both Wargo’s work email address, as well as those of her supervisors.

Dude, I like how calling Perez a “FAT GAY PIG” is somehow supposed to be okay, because she was hoping to “get her point across in a way that was typical for PerezHilton.com.”

Anyway, Diane was eventually fired by her employer, and is sad about it and is now suing Perez, and her lawyer has actually issued a press release. Full text of the release is after the jump.

8Mug Shots!!!

Hooray for new celeb arrests!

Here are the mug shots of W castmembers Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright, who were arrested on Friday night at the wrap party for the Oliver Stone-directed flick about President George W. Bush.

Apparently 10 cops and pepper spray were involved in the brawl.

“We are not at liberty to discuss the specifics of the incident. But officers will use whatever force they feel is necessary to effect a safe arrest,” said a member of the police force.

18Everyone’s Hating on Florence!

God bless Z-listers!

After Florence Henderson had some mean things to say about Adrianne Curry’s marriage to Christopher Knight, Adrianne Curry fought back.

Now, it’s Chris Knight’s turn to do the fighting!

“It hurts me deeply that someone that I have loved and respected for so many years … would discuss overtly negative personal opinions about my marriage in a public forum,” he wrote on his MySpace page. “I can only hope these recent comments are an aberration … It is no secret Florence and Adrianne do not see eye to eye. But … in the struggle I have hoping one day these two women will bridge their generation and philosophical differences, calling my marriage a sham helps so very little.”

Shut up, Mrs. Brady!

32With Our Powers Combined …

Where’s Vanessa Hudgens?

Ashley Tisdale ditched her usual shopping partner to hit up some LA boutiques with Miley Cyrus.

I love the thought-process here.

Ashley: Miley’s increasingly bad-girl image can help me get publicity.
Miley: Ashley’s good-girl image can help improve my bad-girl image.

Eh, why don’t they just all release sex tapes and get it over with?

Oh, right, cuz I can’t run a Miley Cyrus sex tape because she’s underage.

THREE MORE YEARS, PEOPLE!

26Lindsay’s on the Juice Wagon!

I’m so happy for Lindsay Lohan these days. She attended a small BBQ party in Malibu with Samantha Ronson, and reportedly sipped on a non-alcoholic pineapple concoction and chatted with friends the whole night, leaving with SamRo around midnight. No reports of frequent bathroom trips or throwing glasses or fits or anything. Our little Lindsay is a changed woman, and I couldn’t be happier for her!

On a personal note (I know, I know, but a really personal note), I got a phone call tonight from a friend I hadn’t talked to in a long time. I was really surprised to see his number show up on my caller ID. He’s struggled with drug abuse for awhile, and I thought he was clean (he was the last time I spoke with him, in April, the day before Charlie died), but he called to tell me he’d been on a month-long crack run and didn’t know where to turn. He’s out of money and he has no insurance to go to a hospital to detox. His parents won’t help him out (they’ve helped him out plenty in the past, but they’re sick of it). He’s stealing food and beer from the grocery store, and dealers in Venice are shooting at him and banging up his car, because he owes them money. I really didn’t know what to tell him. I told him if he could get out to Seattle he was welcome to detox on my couch, but he has no money for a ticket, and I know better than to give a drug addict any money. If I lived in LA still, I’d go pick him up and take him to stay with me, but I can’t do that from Seattle. I suggested maybe he should go to an AA or NA meeting, or call his old sponsor, but he doesn’t want to do that, either. So I couldn’t really do anything but tell him that I love him and he means the world to me and that I would be devastated if he died — which is looking more and more likely. Just another reminder that, as much as we make fun of drug addiction on this website, it’s a very real and very serious illness that claims lives. This guy used to be one of the smartest, funniest, kindest, most gorgeous men I’d ever met — I used to have a hardcore crush on him, honestly — and he’s been reduced to pretty much nothing by his addiction. It’s so hard to watch.

So it’s nice to see Lindsay doing well, and, if you have some extra time tonight, it would be nice if ya’ll could pray for my friend.
