It’s Sad That We Only Write About Kristen Bell When She’s Talking About Hayden Panettiere


She’s a pretty girl, and a talented actress, but she just doesn’t get into any trouble. She shows up on a different red carpet every night (trust me, I look through all the photos every morning), but no one ever runs the photos or writes anything about her.

Plus she’s 27, so she’s like five or six years too old for us to start caring about her.

But we get to care today, because she’s talking about Hayden Panettiere and her (non-) relationship with Milo Ventimiglia.

They’re just great friends,” she told OK! magazine. “They’re not dating.”

As for her own love life? (I guess the interviewer felt obliged to ask her.)

“I’m taking single life moment by moment. It’s uncomfortable for me because I haven’t been single in a long time. I’m a homebody. I’m a Blockbuster girl at heart.”

You know what you need to do, don’t you, Kristen? To solve your love life problems and the fact that the tabloids don’t give a shit about you?

That’s right, baby. Two words:



There’s Going to Be a Star Wars Television Series? Seriously?

George Lucas Working on Live-Action Star Wars Television Series

You’d think at this point George Lucas would want to move on with his life.

Like, buddy, you’ve been doing this Star Wars thing forever. Fidel Castro’s smoking a cigar somewhere like, “When is this guy gonna stop?”

I guess the live-action television series Lucas is working on will not focus on the primary Star Wars characters.

“The Skywalkers aren’t in it, and it’s about minor characters,” he told the LA Times. He’s just begun work on the series, and won’t reveal anything more about it.

But at Evil Beet, we can exclusively reveal very important details about the Star Wars television series:

1) It will suck.
2) It will totally suck.
3) George Lucas hasn’t put out a decent piece of film in nearly 25 years.
4) So this will suck.

I Guess Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling Are Over

Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams Break Up

From GQ:

“I mean, God bless The Notebook,” Gosling says. “It introduced me to one of the great loves of my life. But people do Rachel and me a disservice by assuming we were anything like the people in that movie. Rachel and my love story is a hell of a lot more romantic than that.”

They broke up, is the thing. It’s been a few months. Gosling says it wasn’t the attention that did it, but other than that he doesn’t really know what to say. “The only thing I remember is we both went down swingin’ and we called it a draw,” he says.

The Notebook people have taken it harder. “Women are mad at me,” Gosling says with a rueful smile. “A girl came up to me on the street and she almost smacked me. Like, ‘How could you? How could you let a girl like that go?’ I feel like I want to give people hugs, they seem so sad. Rachel and I should be the ones getting hugs! Instead, we’re consoling everybody else.”

Things Get Hairy for Vanessa Hudgens and HSM 3

Vanessa Anne Hudgens Not Coming Back to Disney for High School Musical 3?

I don’t really believe any of these, but we’ve got another source claiming Vanessa Hudgens has been 86′d from High School Musical 3 after the naked pics of her hit the web.

“Disney finally decided that they don’t want her back,” an insider reveals to OK!. “They feel that as long as Zac Efron is in the movie, all will be fine. He’s the real star — the household name — and, most importantly, he comes without baggage.”

The source also reports that one of the Cheetah Girls — Adrienne Baillon, 23, or possibly 23-year-old Sabrina Bryan — will take Vanessa’s place. “The producers think that after Dancing With the Stars, Sabrina will be more famous than Vanessa.”

Personally, I think this is bullshit. Who the hell is Sabrina Bryan? Maybe in the tween market she’s a big name, but they’d be crazy to ditch Vanessa now. She’s a way bigger name than any of these people after those pics hit the net. And most of her biggest fans don’t even know they’re out there.

If Vanessa doesn’t come back for HSM3, it’s because she chose not to, not because Disney ditched her.

Britney Knew Lance Bass Was Gay Before You Did


Well, Britney knew Lance Bass was gay before you did, if you’re retarded and blind. Otherwise, you should have known Lance Bass was gay, like, the first time you saw an interview with him. One of my sorority sisters used to be obsessed with Lance. The mere mention of his name would cause her to go all red in the face and jump up and down. I was like, “Sweetheart, you do realize he is incredibly gay?” but she wasn’t hearing it.

She was Canadian, for what it’s worth.


LANCE Bass came out to Britney Spears before he told many of his other friends he was gay because he felt bad for her – and it was the last time they spoke. In a Q&A with Mickey Rapkin of GQ, Bass related, “It was the night of her first wedding, actually. I was in Vegas with her, her dancers, her manager, and my boyfriend at the time . . . Her manager had already gotten rid of [her first husband] Jason [Alexander] – they’d flown him home. Britney was upset about what she had done. I felt bad for her. I knew she was about to go through a lot of crap. I felt the need to share something. So I sat her on my bed, and I’m like, Well, I’m gay!” Spears was “surprised. I was always the Southern gentleman.” The two don’t talk anymore. Bass said, “I tried. She’s my neighbor in Beverly Hills. She lives next door. I tried to get in touch with her – I wanted to be that friend to help her.”

I think my favorite part of this story is the mental image of Britney’s manager approaching her new husband and being like, “Dude. It’s time for you to go.” And Jason Alexander being like, “Yeah, you’re probably right,” and getting on a plane. Like he’s five years old. Nothing like, “You know, I’m a grown man, and I’m going to stay in Vegas with my new fucking wife.” Nope, just happily getting on a plane because Britney’s manager says so. Love it.
