Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Guess Who?

I usually have a really good read on these blind items but today I’ve got nothing. In the spirit of getting our lovely readers commenting away I want you to leave your guesses in the comments.

I’ll post the best guess at the end of the day. Fame and fortune will be yours…well really just a shout out on The Beet.

Which married actress in a hit prime-time show has been propositioning her boyish co-star? She recently texted him while he was on vacation in Mexico, saying: “We have chemistry – I really think we could make it work.”

Heidi and Spencer Making a Lot of Money off Their “Fame”

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are using their “relationship” to attempt to hold onto their reality TV fame. According to Celebrity Babylon, Montag and Pratt are using their sham relationship to make money off various photo opportunities. Do you really think that paps just randomly find them frolicking on the beach and enjoying romantic meals together. Ugg, gag me with a spoon.

It was all so romantic, The Hills stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag getting engaged in idyllic Santa Barbara, Ca., with the waves of the Pacific Ocean crashing around them only 8 months after they hooked up. But wait! What’s that? It’s a manager with a contract in hand, the dirtiest deal in Hollywood, the romance is a publicity stunt to make the two cover-worthy magazine stars and generate a significant side income! That’s right, Celebrity Babylon has learned EXCLUSIVELY that the engagement between Pratt, 23, and Montag, 20, is a FAKE, as fake as Montag’s new chest! “It’s an arrangement that suits both of them,” says an MTV insider, “they won’t be walking down the aisle, they will go through the motions of planning a wedding, and then have a big break-up that will get lots of press. All caught on camera by photographers, of course.” It’s a lesson in profile raising publicity that Pratt learned at the knee of pal Brody Jenner, 23, who is widely believed to wooed childhood friend Nicole Richie, 26, after her engagement ended to DJ AM (Adam Goldstein), to raise his profile.

Heidi I guess thought the boobs were going to make her famous on their own but alas she had to get engaged to make people actually care about her. I hope LC doesn’t hang out with this loser anymore.

Joe Francis Out on Bail, Hide Your Pre-Teens

Joe Francis Out on Bail

Sometimes I don’t think this guy would get half the press he does if TMZ didn’t have so much fun making up words like “pimpresario” and “sexecutive.” I prefer to call him “jackass.” I imagine his cell mates called him “bitch.” Whatever your special pet name for Joe Francis, he was released from a Nevada jail on $1.5M bail on Monday afternoon. However, officials in Florida still want him for sexual performance with a minor and smuggling sleeping pills into jail. So, with any luck, he’ll be back in jail soon, and I can throw my third “Joe Francis Is Safely In Jail!” party of this year. They’re always a lot of fun. We have chips, dip, Lunesta. The usual. Says Joe’s rep:

“We are pleased with today’s decision. The Court conducted a very thorough analysis of the facts and determined that Mr. Francis’ release is appropriate in this case. The Court ruled that the conditions of Mr. Francis’ bail were sufficient to compel Mr. Francis to appear in court and to comply with Court orders. Now this allows us to address the issue of bail in his Florida case.”

Heh. See you back in jail soon, Joey.

Creepy

So in weird couple news John Ramsey and Beth Holloway Twitty are dating. As you may remember John Ramsey is the father of JonBenet Ramsey who was murdered at the age of 6 and Beth Holloway Twitty is the mother of Natalie Holloway who disappeared in the Bahamas.

They have been seen kissing and enjoying romantic dinners in Twitty’s hometown yet deny that there is any romantic relationship between them.

Somehow this really weirds me out. I understand shared experience and all but this coupling seems just a little too weird. Nancy Grace is going to have a field day with this.

Katie Price is Pregnant and Tacky

Katie Price aka Jordan is not only really pregnant…she is also dressed like a bargain basement Barbie as well. She and her enormous breasts are launching a book that she “wrote” called “Crystal.”

Amusing that she traveled to the book signing in a big plastic Crystal. Way to be subtle.

So You Think You Can Act?

To this:

(Katharine) McPhee starring in indie feature

I say “why not?” Although I am wary of the “indie” tag, because that means I may be filming it with the extra $20 I got from selling a crack rock today, I see no reason to automatically disqualify McPhee from the ranks of J-Hudness.

Conversely, in the industry, it’s pretty much the prevailing opinion that J-Hud will never be heard from again on the acting front. Her role in Dreamgirls was too perfect for her and featured tons of singing; clearly this is her strength. There aren’t enough musicals to sustain her and now she’s put herself in the singing corner. However, it looks as though Kat won’t be making that mistake:

McPhee will make her feature film debut as the star of indie dark romantic comedy The Last Caller. The coming-of-age story is about a self-obsessed woman (McPhee) who searches for love, hope, and meaning during random events with other urban seekers. The role does not involve singing.

So, while McPhee won’t be winning an Oscar for this she may be setting herself up for future success. Hopefully that will help her get over that whole American Idol finale snub.

Audrey Tatou is an Elf

But she’s as cute as a button in my humble opinion.

Also, if you haven’t seen Amelie you should go rent it right now. You’ll thank me later, perhaps over tea.

And don’t worry, I’ve sent out some inquiries as to who the hell that giant woman sneaking up behind her about to eat her neck is. When I get to the bottom of it I’ll give you a full report.
