Paris Will Score a Million Bucks for First Interview After Jail Time

Paris Hilton One Million Dollars Meredith Viera Interview Today Show

It looks like Paris Hilton’s first post-jail interview will take place on NBC’s Today Show, with Meredith Viera. The move has infuriated top brass at ABC, who’d assumed the interview would go to Hilton family friend Barbara Walters.

ABC was the front-runner until NBC Universal boss Jeff Zucker personally called Hilton’s father Rick and made the pitch, the sources said.

Hilton agreed to the interview, but said she’d only speak with Vieira because of “disparaging” remarks her co-host Matt Lauer made about her.

Paris’ price tag for the interview? A cool one million. Hell, I’ll do three weeks at Lynwood for a million bucks. Where do I sign up?

Renee Wasting Away


I remember not so long ago seeing pictures of Renee Zellweger and thinking that she looked great…not too thin but slim and toned.

I was shocked when I came across this recent photo of her. You can distinctly see her shoulder bones. I don’t think that this is a good look for her.

New BFF Alert: Kim Kardashian and Brittny Gastineau

Ah, the transfer of power in Hollywood. First Paris Hilton helped make Kim Kardashian a celebrity in her own right. Now Kim is paying it forward, dragging Gastineau Girls never-was Brittny Gastineau onto the red carpet and back into the public eye. We saw the two brunettes together at The N’s 5-year anniversary party earlier this week, and Wednesday night they showed up together at Lorraine Schwartz Monkey Collection launch in NYC. Because with Paris in the slammer, Lindsay in rehab, and Britney being boring, I have no choice but to write about what Kim Kardashian is doing. Look, folks, I don’t like it any more than you do, but you have to admire their timing.

Also, guys, I may be developing a tiny crush on Brittny. Mostly because I like the way she spells her name. Maybe I’d like Kim better if she spelled it, like, Khimmnm. Oh, yeah. Fuck that’s hot.

Jennifer Lopez was there, too, in a super cute outfit, but she’s old now and I don’t care about her.

So You Think You Can Dance: Week 2

Week 2 in “So You Think You Can Dance.” I’m breaking it down this week. I’ll recap a bit of last week since I was cheering on the Beet in Lala land. This year this show really rocks the house and the dancers are the best yet. If you aren’t watching this show then I have no idea what you are watching. “On The Lot” blows and other than my fascination with “Army Wives” we are in the doldrums of summer television.

Lauren and Neil- Neil and Laura are a fun youthful little couple. Last week their Samba was adorable but just a little too cutesy for the judges. This week they do Hip-Hop and they are quite awesome at getting down with their bad ‘selves. Lauren seems a bit inhibited by her weird 80s prom outfit that they have put her in and Neil kind of rocks her in the performance. He’s got an electric smile and really hits all of the moves. They throw in a few acro tricks for him and are shockingly good and I find myself really enjoying the performance. I’m kind of nostalgic however for Benji and Donyelle’s Hip-Hop last year because it was so fun to see them flirt and interact. This Hip-Hop routine seems kind of like they are both in their own little worlds. Mia lost a lot of Lauren in the performance and Mary really thinks they are getting a good chemistry. Nigel is impressed at how the night has started. I’m a bit sad because usually Mary is a bit Paula drunken crazy and tonight she seems a bit tame.

Jessi and Pasha- These two dancers are so freaking sexy. Pasha is a Russian Ballroom Champion and Jessi has a cool funky earth mother style. They are so well matched and have enough chemistry that last week their waltz was heavenly. This week they are given Jazz and Tyce choreographs one of the cooler routines I’ve seen in the history of this show. It combines Pasha’s sex appeal with Jessi’s earth mother sexy and once again they mesh beautifully. They are totally committed to this weird tribal bird dance and are perfectly in sync the whole time. Pasha now officially is the “dancer that all the girls want to have sex with” in the competition. Those Russian Ballroom boys really do it for me. Mia thinks they are just amazing and is quite impressed at Pasha’s growth. Mary also thinks it is terrific and is just taken by Jessi’s unique style. Nigel loves them as well. I think he has a bit of an old man crush on Jessi.

He’s been deemed the next big thing by everyone in the world. And yet, he is incapable of taking anything even approaching a good photo. And trust me, I didn’t cherry pick the worst ones, they are all like this. He looks like a goober in every single shot.

Weird stuff. This is at some Transformers function, which sort of explains why women are sporting giant helmets and camo. No wait, it still doesn’t explain it. Click on more odd photos if you’d like, but I warned you.



Today I Mourn


This is bad news for Uncle Spiteful Lars:

The O.C.’s Kelly Rowan Engaged to Billionaire

Um… no deal. This bastard is the tenth richest man in the world. I’m not even the tenth richest person in my cubicle. Frustrating. And now he’s marrying Kiki Cohen. What kind of world is this? Are we all doomed to having our dreams crushed by Canadians? Yes, that’s right, I forgot to mention that he’s Canadian too.

Ok, admittedly she does look a little like a Worf from Star Trek: The Next Generation here with the odd head veins but I still found her hot in the right light/scene.
