Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Miss Teen South Carolina Does Little to Help Her Cause

The star of our new favorite YouTube video showed up on The Today Show today to try to explain that she’s not really as stupid as she seems in the clip.

And, while she seems like a very sweet girl, and her speech this time fits into the grammatical pattern I’ve come to recognize as “English,” she still comes off like she’s not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree.

Poor thing.

At least they can’t take away her crown for being stupid.

Amy Winehouse’s In-Laws Want Fans to Boycott

The father of Amy Winehouse’s husband recommends that fans boycott the troubled singer until she can get her act together.

“They are seen as a couple who display sorts of behavior that can be seen as almost entertaining, especially for the tabloid newspapers, and I think it’s about time that their friends and professional colleagues say, ‘enough is enough.’ Perhaps it’s come to the point where—and I wouldn’t want any harm to come to Amy or Blake, obviously—but perhaps it’s time to stop buying records,” says Giles Fielder-Civil to the BBC on Tuesday.

“I think they believe that they are recreational users of drugs and that they are in control … They’re a very close couple. If one dies through substance abuse, the other may commit suicide…and if they died within the next 12 to 24 months, it would be such a tragic waste.”

Winehouse’s own father doesn’t see it quite the same way.

“Will it do any good?” asks Winehouse’s father. “No. It won’t send any message to Amy at all, unfortunately. If I thought it would, it would be a great idea. I’m clutching at straws. It’s all clutching at straws.”

“The only way out of this is, at some point, they are gonna reach rock bottom,” he says. “And at that point, they will say, listen, I don’t want to do this anymore. That’s their decision to make. When the decision is right, they’ll make it. Or they won’t make it.”

Owen Wilson Suicide Attempt Confirmed

It’s official.

Owen Wilson’s trip to the hospital yesterday was the result of a suicide attempt.

Extra obtained the official report of the 911 call, which indicates the reason for the call as an “attempted suicide.”

His brother Luke is the one who found him in his home. Luke called 911 and Owen was rushed to the hospital, where he is currently listed in good condition.

Owen Wilson has a history of depression and drug and alcohol abuse and was most recently linked to actress Kate Hudson.

Owen!!!

We love you and we’re hoping you can get the help that you need.

Rumer Willis Has a Very Flat Stomach

Why do I care about Rumer Willis?

Why do you?

What does she do?

Why do I run her picture when it shows up?

It’s not like it’s a slow news week. It’s only Monday, and already Owen Wilson’s tried to off himself, Nick Hogan nearly killed himself drag-racing, and a bigot Idaho senator got caught in “lewd” bathroom acts with another man.

And yet, I feel moved to run this new picture of Rumer Fucking Willis at the LG House in Malibu. I think I’m fascinated by the flatness of her stomach. I have to share it with all of you.

I just want to say, for all of you commenters out there who feel obliged to mention that I need to get a life, and that it’s really sad that this is what I do/think about all day: I know. I know that, guys.

More Details About Owen Wilson’s Suicide Attempt

Update: Wilson had an unlikely hospital visitor: Samuel L. Jackson! Check out video here.

This is the path Lindsay Lohan’s on!

The Insider is reporting that Owen Wilson, who attempted suicide on Sunday, has a history of depression and drug and alcohol abuse. He spent time in the Hazeldon rehab center in Minnesota seven years ago.

Owen’s stayed sober and healthy for awhile, but apparently recently he’s fallen off the wagon and, now, into a hospital (where he’s in good condition).

I remember back when he was dating Kate Hudson, reports surfaced about he, Kate and brother Luke tossing back shots at an LA bar. I didn’t run the story. I thought to myself at the time, “This must be made up — I thought he was clean and sober.” But maybe they were the truth…

Why on earth would his brother be tolerating him drinking if he knew he had a problem?

And why would Kate?? She has yet to comment about any of this. She’s been linked recently to Dax Shephard, and photos surfaced earlier this month of the two of them sucking face.

There will certainly be much more to come of this story …
