“I got a lot of shit at the end about ‘Why weren’t you there for him?’ But being that close, I dealt with it all the time. And in that situation, before the guy’s dead, he’s just kind of an asshole. Truth is, you get a junkie who’s wasted all the time and moody and angry and trying to knock you around, you say, ‘OK, you go do that, and I’ll be over here.’”

David Spade, who’s quoted in The Last Days of Chris Farley, a book penned by Farley’s brother.

Excerpts from the book will run in the May issue of Playboy, which hits newsstands on Friday.

I love that Playboy scored the exclusive on this. Chris would have been proud.

8Ivanka Trump Can Get Back to Focusing on Her Career

Ivanka’s friends are confirming that she’s split from her beau of one year, real estate heir/wunderkind Jared Kushner.

“It was mutual,” said a friend. “It’s a sad thing.”

Now Ivanka can get back to the business of pretending to run a department at Trump. And women can get back to not at all wanting to be her. And men can get back to thinking about how she does have great tits and they might be attracted to her if she weren’t so business-like and driven and intimidating.

9Velvet Revolver Dumps Scott Weiland


Yeah, he’s out.

Says Slash in a press release issued Tuesday:

“This band is all about its fans and its music and Scott Weiland isn’t 100% committed to either. Among other things, his increasingly erratic onstage behavior and personal problems have forced us to move on.”

If this is an April Fool’s joke — and I don’t think it is — it’s a really stupid one.

Because, come on, you’d dump Scott Weiland, too. Heroin addicts are only cute for so long.

Velvet Revolver plans to replace Weiland with a new vocalist; they are not splitting up. Weiland will still be hitting the road with STP this summer.

3She’s Back, Bitches

Kylie Minogue performed her new single, “All I See,” on Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night.

You know, Madonna gets a ton of credit for being on the scene forever and constantly reinventing herself, but Kylie’s been around forever, too. She’s been through so much shit — including a bout with cancer — and she just keeps getting stronger in the face of it. I love her for that. As a reminder, I’ve also included here the video for “Locomotion,” her first single, which was released in 1987.

While other starlets her age only wear suits to their DUI court dates, Kerry Washington is always in sharp business attire testifying before Congress for one cause or another.

She showed up on Tuesday to testify at a House Appropriations hearing on Funding for the Arts.

Way to go, Kerry. Thank you for being a kick-ass positive role model.

10I Guess It’s Time for Jay-Z and Beyonce to Break Up


After six years of dating in relative peace, Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles have reportedly filed for a marriage license.

They’ve kept their private relationship notoriously private, rarely talking about each other or their relationship in interviews.

The marriage license isn’t the same thing as getting married, obviously, but it’s valid for 60 days should they choose to bite the bullet.

And everything had been going so well before …
