Paula Abdul’s Conference Call Meltdown!

Not that this should come as a surprise to anyone, but our resident chihuahua-preservation guru had a nervous break-down on a conference call the other day. There is so, so much to say about this article, but I have so, so many other things to do right now, so I’m going to go ahead and let Page Six do my job for me right now. We’ll chat about this in more detail later.

She sobs on the tape: “I’ve never been treated this way and I’ve never seen anybody treated this way. This is just too much to stomach.” Abdul is assured by those hearing her wails, “You will be treated better starting right now.”

“I’ve been going through tremendous amounts of a difficult time,” said Abdul, who recently fibbed to her fans when she said she hurt her nose tripping over her Chihuahua. (We reported the real story last week – that Abdul threw a glass against the wall and a shard of it cut her face.)

Ranting about Bragman [her publicist], who apparently didn’t appreciate her enough, the petite former pop star says: “I do a call-in every week for OK! Magazine on ‘American Idol.’ Because of my brilliant job, they want to do a cover on me. I’m being told by Howard Bragman that I’m too old and no one will ever want to do a cover.

“I’m being tested. All I’ve ever wanted in my life is to be treated fairly and be treated with kindness. And I’ve never in my entire career been treated this way. The people who are supposed to take care of these things do not. I have to clean up after them everywhere they go. And I’m tired of it.”

Lindsay’s Dad Says She Was Hooked on OxyContin

Now that Lindsay Lohan’s father is out of jail, he’s doing everything he can to make up for all that lost time he could have spent using his daughter’s fame to further his own protecting his child from the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Most recently, Michael Lohan was talking to E!, revealing that, in addition to alcohol and cocaine, Lindsay has been abusing the painkiller OxyContin. Michael says:

“I spoke to the people treating Lindsay, because I wanted to make sure she was getting the right care. And I’m satisfied they are doing the right thing for her, helping her detox from the painkillers and things. That’s a very important step … And I learned they use the 12-step program, which includes a lot of lessons based on God’s teachings, so I was satisfied with that. First she needs to get clean, then she needs to let God into her life.”

Right, Michael. Thanks for all you’ve done to try to help your daughter get healthy over the past 21 years month and a half.

Keira Knightley is a Skinny Bitch


I have to say that I have a friend who worked on a movie in England with miss Keira and said simply, “She is quite the brat…actually I really couldn’t stand her…not many people can.” I used to love Keira but lately she as really made some annyoing comments. She is attempting to make her fans think that she is “just like them” when really her image is a dangerous example of skeletal Hollywood.

Even though she is very thin and a huge role models to young women in England she always is making comments about her figure saying that she is very insecure.

“Look up insecurity in the dictionary, ‘For insecurity, see Keira Knightley.’ Constant insecurities. But I’m 22 and my body is alright at the moment. It’s not going to get much better. I know I might as well make the most of it.”

She has decided to combat her “insecurity” by telling people she would rather look like chunky indie rocker Beth Ditto. I wonder if Keira realizes it is a bit of a slap in the face when a skinny actress tells people she envies Beth’s plus size body.

I know she claims to be naturally skinny but I remember when she broke out onto the scene as a teenager (when people are usually at their thinnest) and she looked healthy and trim not ill.

A new actress, Hayley Atwell who is beautiful and womanly has been called the “New Keira Knightley” in England and I hope that is the case. She is beautiful and has an actual figure. She will be starring this summer with Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell in Woody Allen’s movie, “Cassandra’s Dream.”

So this isn’t much of a shocker but reports are circulating that JC Chasez is gay and was caught with an escort at a European charity event.
Check out this blind item and see who you think it is…

Which still-closeted former boy-bander was making sure nobody got pictures of him with his handsome Spanish escort at a recent European charity event?

Rumors have been circulating about JC for some time. Since he was attempting to launch a career as a hot solo singer (ala Justin Timberlake) he kept himself tightly in the closet. Lance Bass came out after entering into a high profile relationship and essentially being “outed” by Perez Hilton. Perez is at it again with JC. Unlike this time, however, nobody has photos of him cavorting with hot gay men.

I believe this though. He evidently was “dating” Eva Longoria and then all of a sudden she was in a high profile relationship with Tony Parker. He didn’t really seem to care…there was no angry “Tony Stole My Girlfriend” piece in US Weekly. He really needed a hot lady to quiet all the gay talk.

As a musical theatre performer I have come to terms with the fact that if they are hot, can dance and sing and the same time they are often gay. It is a stereotype…I will give you that but usually the goofier members of the boy bands (aka Joey “Fat One”) are the ones getting all the ladies because they are the ones that actually like the ladies.

Jury is out on Justin Timberlake.

Shiloh Is Already Turning Down Parts


Have you ever wanted to go inside Shiloh’s world? Well now you can. Because US Weekly has that story covered. That’s a cute kid, and I’m pretty sure her eyes would be called “piercing” although that could be CGI.

Now, I don’t know what the story will be about, but I can only assume it will be something like what milk tastes like and how silly adults can be.

The less cute, and more alarming news, is that Brittany Murphy seems to be married to a con man. I hope someone alerts her.

Now You Just Try to Tell Me Smoking’s Not Cool

Leonardo DiCaprio Revolutionary Road Picture

Because Leonardo DiCaprio looks sexy as hell smoking on the set of his new movie, Revolutionary Road, co-starring Kate Winslet. The film is set in the 1950s, and Winslet plays his wife. That little bitch gets to make out with him take after take after take … twice in a lifetime! Not fair!!

Also, is it just me, or can you make out the outline of Leo’s package in this pic? And I’m not talking about the briefcase …

J. Lo’s Not Super Psyched to Have Her Picture Taken

Jennifer Lopez at Children’s Fund Gala

Jennifer Lopez attended the 20th Annual Children’s Fund Gala in NYC on Wednesday night, and there’s not a single genuine smile in the whole batch of pictures. It’s almost like someone had to tape the corners of her mouth up to get her to smile — the eyes are just dead. But there’s still no denying she’s gorgeous. Marc Anthony was there, too. Is it just me or does he always, always, always look like Tom Hanks in the last thirty minutes of Philadelphia?
