Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Paris is Outta Town Again

Here she is in Berlin (checking into the Berlin Hilton), where she recently arrived — after being in Miami, London and Paris — to promote her fragrance, Can-Can.

Okay, look.

I am going to say something once, and I may never say it again, so listen carefully:

[BEGINNING OF ONE-TIME BEET STATEMENT]

I am very impressed with how hard Paris has been working to promote this stupid fragrance.

She’s like the anti-Britney right now. While Brit refuses to lift a shaky, nicotine-stained finger to promote her album, Paris is traveling the globe to promote a stupid perfume.

Good work, Paris.

[END OF ONE-TIME BEET STATEMENT]

OMG. That was really hard. I think I need to take a nap now.

So The MTV Walkout Happened

MTV Walkout, Pictures, Photos

Remember how I told you about this???

STRIKES ARE CONTAGIOUS! The WGA strike seems to be giving everyone else the guts to stage their own.

Scores of workers from MTV Networks walked off the job yesterday afternoon, filling the sidewalk outside the headquarters of its corporate parent, Viacom, to protest recent changes in benefits.

The walkout highlighted the concerns of a category of workers who are sometimes called permalancers: permanent freelancers who work like full-time employees but do not receive the same benefits.

Waving signs that read “Shame on Viacom,” the workers, most of them in their 20s, demanded that MTV Networks reverse a plan to reduce health and dental benefits for freelancers beginning Jan. 1.

Pay the employees what they’re owed, Viacom!!!

Is Jessica Simpson Going to Be Getting Nude for a Role??? (No.)

Jessica Simpson Doing Nude Role on Camera

I call bullshit on this story, but I’m passing it along anyway.

Says a source:

“Jessica is in the running for a role that, if she gets it, will put her right on the map in terms of acting. The only hitch is that the script requires a number of quite graphic scenes including a full-frontal nude scene. Jessica is so desperate to land the role and get the industry’s respect that she’s ready to go against her better judgment, and her family, by agreeing to bare all.”

Apparently this is some juicy role that she thinks could score her an Oscar nod.

I think the whole thing’s bullshit. Jessica’s not doing a nude scene, period, end of conversation. She might land a role that involves nudity and use a body double, but, however much shit you wanna give Jessica Simpson, this is a girl who sticks to her principles and follows her heart. You won’t see her vag on camera anytime soon, I promise.

PETA Hates the Olsen Twins

Who doesn’t? From Page Six:

THE animal-loving freaks at PETA are training their hate-beams on the Olsen twins, whom they’ve dubbed “The Trollsen Twins.” PETA is furious they’ve “ignored pleas to stop wearing fur and using it in their fashion collection.” The group is unveiling a campaign against the “fur fiends” – Mary-Kate (“Hairy Kate”) and Ashley (“Trashley”) – with a tag line: “Fur Is Worn by Beautiful Animals and Ugly People.” The Trollsen Twins poster will be unveiled today at their Walk of Fame star in LA.

I’m sure PETA really appreciates being called “animal-loving freaks,” Page Six.

And, yes, we’ll have this poster for you guys as soon as we can get our grubby little hands on it. No one’s more excited for this than I am.
