Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Everyone’s Dead! You’ll Be Missed, Evel Knievel.

Evel Knievel Dies

The motorcycle daredevil passed away today, his granddaughter confirmed. He was 69.

He had been in failing health for years, suffering from diabetes and pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable condition that scarred his lungs.

Knievel had undergone a liver transplant in 1999 after nearly dying of hepatitis C, likely contracted through a blood transfusion after one of his bone-shattering spills.

R.I.P., buddy.

Tila Tequila Talks Back

Tila Tequila Says she really is bisexual

Tila is responding to the rumors that she’s not really bi on her blog.

ohhhh God dear lord have mercy! I BARELY just got back from a 15 hour flight from Australia and the minute I land there is a TON of media lies about me out! Today NEW YORK POST “PAGE SIX” wrote an article about me full of LIES! …

First of all, let me just say that whomever they are getting their “sources” from needs to be fired real fast! I find it absolutely absurd that they would even make such an ignorant statement such as ” She’s made out with some girls in her past, as all girls have, but she is not bi at all.”

That is such an absurd stereotype to place on all women and it just shows people how ignorant people can be! The thing that made me laugh the most and how you can tell the “source” was lying was because how they talk about me so called having a boyfriend and they said “He’s like….5 years older then her” Just look at the way they talk about it. Apparently these are made up rumors. People are really silly to have so much time on their hands to call up newspapers and make up lies. Second of all….how could I always be “late” when I could never leave on the first place??? We filmed at MY reality house so that means that I lived in the house with everyone else. I was never allowed to leave….ever…not even to meet up with friends for lunch! That’s the way it worked. The producers wanted the contestants and I to be really engaged in each other so they thought it would be best that I never leave or have contact with the outside world! HELLLOOO! Arriving late…pshhhh…my ass! Another funny thing was how they said I never even talk to contestants between takes. Can we say “HA HA HA?” because there were no “TAKES” seeing how it’s a reality show. They producers just keep filming us as we go live and then they take all the footage to edit the episodes….so there’s not any time for “RE-TAKES” you think all the girlfights and our crying was shot like more than once? I think not, and if that were the case then DAMN….where are our Academy Awards for our fabulous acting skills??? Pfffft!

You know what? People can say whatever they want about me. My whole life I have been judged so that’s nothing new to me so I don’t feel the need to justify my sexuality to anyone! One minute, back in the day when I was still modeling, people talked shit about me for being “lesbian” for shooting sexy pictures with other females and now I’m too “straight” come one….who’s really the confused one here? Definitely not me! HA!

“Bluebell caught chickenpox from [Victoria's Beckham's son] Cruz,” Halliwell (“Ginger” Spice), 35, revealed Friday morning on the British TV show GMTV. “She’s now completely pelted now so I left her at home. Normally they’re running around the set.”
