Got a Tip? Help us Beet Off!


I just love everything about Zooey Deschanel.

Here she is looking cute as hell at the NYC premiere of The Happening.

I was supposed to go to the preview screening of this film today, but then it got awful reviews at the LA screening on Sunday, so I decided to take a little nap instead. I’ll catch it when it’s on HBO.

Also there: Mischa Barton and Abigail Breslin.

110Linda Hogan’s Boyfriend Is 19 Years Old

Remember this little studmuffin that Linda Hogan’s been dragging all around the country?

His name is Charley Hill. He’s her new boyfriend. And he’s 19 years old.

“I’m totally freaked out,” Brooke told an interviewer with E! “I personally don’t like it at all or condone it, but she’s my mom, so I have to show her support.”

And how does Linda know Charley?

“I went to school with him. He was a grade under me…Me and Nick know him well. Me and Nick are two years apart, and he was right between us (in school).”

OMG. If I were Brooke, I’d absolutely die right about now.

“I am just staying the course and dealing with it and supporting my family,” says Brooke. “I’m actually on my way to see Nick now … You know, I thought we were one of the normal Hollywood families. It’s crazy watching it all fall apart, but I hope for the best.”

Dude, I like Brooke Hogan more and more these days. Her entire family is completely batshit insane, but it seems like she’s holding it together relatively well in the face of it. Good for you, Brooke!

48Ashanti’s Bloody Video Sparks a Protest

Around two dozen protesters, mostly concerned parents a religious leaders, gathered outside the Universal/Motown offices Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles to complain about the violence depicted in Ashanti’s video for “The Way That I Love You” and its related, equally bloody, marketing efforts.

In the video, a woman brutally kills her boyfriend, who she apparently caught cheating on her.

Says on protester: “The real shock is that Ashanti is squeaky-clean … and the song has nothing to do with murdering someone, so the video is definitely constructed for shock value, and we feel there’s enough violence in our inner cities without you picking your weapon of choice.”

What do you guys think?

9Congrats to the Winners of the Work Out DVD!

Okay, you guys, honestly, this was by and far the hardest giveaway contest I’ve had to judge. You guys had some AMAZING responses, and a lot of you really wanted this DVD, and I really wish I had 20 of them to give away.

That said, the winners are the following:

Winner #1 is T.P.:

If I had half an hour alone with Greg Plitt to do whatever I wanted, I would chop him up into a million little pieces and toss him into my salad. Then I would tell all my friends that I started eating healthy.

Winner #2 is Jamie:

If I had half an hour alone with Greg Plitt to do whatever I wanted, I would take him swing dancing at my favorite swing club, because if you’ve never “swinged” with someone who has big muscles, you haven’t lived. They can throw you high in the air, fling you around their bodies and pull you out the other side. Just think dirty dancing but with more spunk and fun and heat. The best part is that you feel light as a bird. You can also flirt and touch and drive him wild with foreplay with your moves. God, it’s perfect. When we only had ten minutes left, the club would be closing, everyone would suddenly vanish, and our dancing slowed to something more sexual and rhythmic. Someone would wheel out a canopy beach bed with soft white sheets. Greg would sway his hips with mine, placing his strong hands on my ass, pressing me closer so I could feel his excitement. I’d look up into his face; he’d say, “I want you.” Our lips would intertwine to a deep, knee-wobbling kiss. He would lower me, dancer-style, to the bed. And for the last seven naughty minutes, we’d fuck like there was no tomorrow. Cumming at the same time, of course.

Flattery will get you everywhere, kids.

And Winner #3 is Lauren:

If I had half an hour alone with Greg Plitt to do whatever I wanted, I would give him to YOU (beet) because I want to win this dvd soo badly plus I’m a married woman so I don’t think my husband would like that very much. However you could dip him in a chocolate fountain or caramel if that’s why prefer, and top him with whipped cream, let’s not forget a scoop of ice cream! I imagine it would be an incredible night (or thirty minutes) of him flexing his muscles and you watching while taking a scoop of the delectable goodies that drips off his body. Not bad huh?

Thank you to everyone who submitted a response, and make sure to catch the season finale of Work Out on Bravo TONIGHT!

7Happy Alanis Morrisette Album Release Day!

Flavors of Entanglement comes out today.

I’ve been listening to it this morning on Rhapsody. It’s pretty typical Alanis fare, but obviously a lot of it comes from her split with Ryan Reynolds. The track “Not as We” is a pretty gutwrenching take on a break-up.

I wonder if Ryan Reynolds is secretly going to listen to this album today. Or Scarlett Johansson?

11Celebrity Rehab: Part Deux

The second season of Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab has begun filming in Pasadena, CA.

The new “cast” includes: Rodney King, Nikki McKibbin, Tawny Kitaen, Steven Adler and Sean Stewart.

Plus: Jeff Conaway is back for yet another round of rehabbin’ and Gary Busey will sign on in the Daniel Baldwin role, since Gary claims 13 years of sobriety.

By the way, yes, you read that right. Somehow or other, Rodney “Can We All Get Along?” King became a member of the Celebrity Rehab cast. Genius, genius, genius.

I continue to be disgusted by the fact that these people are willing to go through rehab for a national audience just for another shot at the spotlight. If there’s anything more potent to an addict than alcohol and drugs, it’s clearly fame. You cannot effectively treat the alcohol and drug problem while encouraging the most destructive symptoms of the fame addiction. The whole thing just appalls me.
