Got a Tip? Help us Beet Off!




18Spotted!

Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong, leaving her West Village townhome on their way to an Iron Maiden concert at Madison Square Garden.

I had no idea that Iron Maiden was still touring. The most I know about Iron Maiden is from that Wheatus song, “Teenage Dirtbag,” which I’m posting the video for here because that song rocks, and the video has Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari in it. This is the censored version, where they blank out the word “gun” in “he brings a gun to school,” because we all know that school violence is a direct symptom of alt-rock lyrics. Thank you, FCC, for so bravely preventing another Columbine. If we spend all our time focusing on removing even the most innocuous references to violence from the songs we hear on the radio, we’ll find we won’t have any time at all to tackle any of the real reasons we see violence in our schools, which is a good thing, because doing that would be hard.

38Mario Lopez is SUCH an Asshole!

This guy just treats all women like shit and I hate him. I have no idea why anyone would date him. He’s such a gigantic loser with really, really, REALLY low self-esteem, and probably a tiny penis that only gets hard when he can see himself in the mirror. Seriously I heard rumors about him being an enormous asshole even back on his SBTB days, and then he cheated on Ali Landry just days before their wedding, and all of a sudden he starts to get all famous and popular again and I was kind of like “WHAT THE FUCK??? Don’t people remember what a DOUCHEBAG he is???” Well hopefully this kind of bullshit will help solidify in the minds of the American public that THIS GUY SUCKS and we don’t need to be casting him in anything or watching him on TV or drooling over him and or doing anything other than hating him and all his shittiness.

Here’s his ex-girlfriend, Karina Smirnoff, appearing on Chelsea Lately right after news broke that Mario had been cheating on her for a long-ass time with a stupid hooker who worked at Hooters. CLASSY! Chelsea asks her if she found out along with the rest of the country, and she says that she just found out a couple of days ago, and then she starts to cry. It’s so sad! And then Chelsea is totally kick-ass and awesome about it and consoles her and notes what a total fuckhead Mario is.

SUCK AN EGG, MARIO!

29Another One on the Horizon

The Wall Street Journal ran an interesting article today about the Disney fame machine and their newest protege, 15-year-old Demi Lovato, who will star in the upcoming Disney flick Camp Rock, which they obviously hope will be the next High School Musical. (It premieres today on pay-per-view, which is probably why the WSJ is running this article today.)

Anyway, the whole article’s worth a read (it’s here) as it talks a little about how Disney discovers and nurtures new talent. It turns out Demi is the BFF of another Disney star, Selena Gomez — the two met when they both appeared on Barney as children. Demi’s mother took Selena and Demi to a Disney audition in Austin, where they passed on Demi but snapped up Selena (she “looks more Hispanic than Demi, and that’s what they were looking for at the time,” says Demi’s mom). After Selena scored big with Disney, she was determined to help her BFF get famous too, and called her up on stage during a break from the taping of Wizards of Waverly Place. Demi belted out a tune for the producers, who then cast her in Camp Rock. Cute story, if it’s true.

The article also mentions that ratings for Miley Cyrus’s Hannah Montana dipped steeply after the racy photos of her in Vanity Fair hit stands.

As for Demi, she plans to be squeaky clean for now. “I ask myself, ‘Is this something a 15-year-old should be doing?’ and if it isn’t, then I don’t do it.”

Ah, these kids are so delusional at 15. But it’s just another generation of good gossip in the making.

17Mary J. Blige to the Rescue!

Aw, this is a really cute story.

Last week, Blige was at the Diane von Furstenberg store in the Meatpacking District when she overheard a girl having a problem at the register. A spy said, “The girl had a dress on hold that she loved, and the bill was $900. She thought it was only $500, and she couldn’t afford it.” Blige told the saleswoman, “Go get the girl. I want to pay for the balance on the dress.” The customer at first declined Blige’s offer but relented after the singer said, “I know what it’s like to want something and not be able to have it. I insist.” The customer wanted to send her a check for the balance, but Blige said, “Just enjoy it. I’m blessed, so let me do this.”

That’s really sweet of Mary to do, but what I’m confused about is how anyone could think a $900 dress only cost $500. How do you make a mistake like that? Did the “9″ on the price tag look like a “5″? Was it accidentally on the sale rack? Wouldn’t she have confirmed the price before putting it on hold? That part seems kind of fishy to me. Maybe the “spy” just misremembered the register problem. Or maybe I need to spend less time analyzing items I read on Page Six.

But regardless, way to be a Good Samaritan, Mary!

26Paris Denied a Puppy

God, Paris Hilton sucks so much.

On her way to a photo shoot this weekend, Paris decided she wanted to have a puppy in the shoot with her, so that it would look “cuter.”

She waltzed into The Puppy Store on Melrose and tried to buy a Yorkie. An employee there refused her, saying it was “clearly an impulse buy.” Paris went ballistic. “She started screaming, ‘I love my puppies! I want my baby!’” says a spy.

If you wanted a puppy in the shoot with you, Paris, you should have taken one of the 8000 dogs you’re already neglecting at home.
