Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Debbie Gibson and Constantine Maroulis?

Is Constantine Maroulis Dating Debbie Gibson? Probably Not.

From Us Magazine:

Are Deborah Gibson and American Idol alum Constantine Maroulis making sweet music together? spotted the pair walking hand in hand in NYC October 23.

Maroulis, 32, says he and Gibson, 37, began hanging out after meeting at the Broadway revival of Grease in August.

“She’s a sweetheart,” he tells Us. “She’s classy, has built a nice career and doesn’t drink or do drugs. We’re close, and it’s cool.”

You know what this sounds like to me?

This sounds like one of those hare-brained schemes Kathy Griffin would come up with on My Life on the D-List. Like, “How can I get the paparazzi to take my picture and get in the tabloids? Who do I need to date? Call his publicist!” And the end result is her walking down the street with Ron Jeremy. That’s the only possible explanation for Constantine Maroulis/Debbie Gibson.


This will fuck your shit up if you’re tripping right now. (Also, please, stop doing expense reports.)

This is the trailer for Paris Hilton’s new movie, Repo! The Genetic Opera.

It looks like it sucks, but it looks like it sucks in that amazing, campy sort of way, like it’s the perfect thing to have on in the background while you’re playing quarters chandelier and doing shots in between your turns because you’re not good enough at quarters to get as drunk as you wanna get. Not that I have any personal experience with that. Anyway, if that’s what the director was going for, Paris Hilton was an ideal casting choice.

Britney’s VMA Dancers: Pay Us, Please


It seems Britney is ready to forget everything about her recent VMA show, including the paychecks she owes her dancers:

Britney Spears is so “in her own world,” she likely has no idea the hard-working backup dancers on her MTV Video Music Award performance of “Gimme More” have not been fully paid. “The dancers were paid for the actual show and some of the rehearsals, but not all of them,” an insider told Us Weekly. Spears dropped her management team, The Firm, and according to the mag, “Her management usually pays the dancers.” Spears also “ignored” the court-appointed parenting coach assigned to monitor her visits with her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James. Spears’ coach has asked a judge to order her to show up to her office because, she “refuses to pay attention to her.”

In fairness, this probably isn’t Britney’s responsibility. It’s not like she’s supposed to be sitting around at night cutting checks to her dancers. The management company is likely at fault.
