Is Anybody Watching Pageant Place?

Pageant Place Cast Photo I just caught the first episode tonight. DRAMALICIOUS!! Okay, you guys, here's the set-up: Miss Teen USA Katie Blair (who's not Miss Teen USA right now, but was when they filmed this), Miss USA Rachel Smith and Miss Universe Riyo Mori are all living together in Trump Towers. Katie, as you'll recall, was all BFF with Tara Conner (aka Mess USA) before she went to rehab. I guess Katie was the one who turned Tara in to the Miss Universe Organization for drug use, thus leading to that whole...

Britney Wants to Have Sleepovers with Her Kids

britney_baby2.jpg I think Britney Spears woke up in the middle of the night recently and was like, "Where are my kids? What do ya'll mean they took 'em away? The little stinky people? They're gone? Shit, ya'll. Did ya'll know that all along? Why didn't someone tell me?" And then people stared at her kind of dumbfounded and finally someone was like, "Um, well, yeah. You didn't take your drug tests and you don't show up at court and you're generally not at all in the running for Mother of the Year and Jesus...

Michelle Rodriguez is RETARDED (and Going to Jail)

Michelle Rodriguez Will Do Six Months in Jail on DUI OMG. How stupid can you be? After being put on probation for drunk driving (multiple times), the Lost star not only drank while wearing an alcohol-monitoring bracelet, she lied about completing her community service requirements. "She did file a document that said she completed community service on September 25th, but we obtained evidence that she was in New York that day," said the LA City Attorney. The judge sentenced Michelle to six months in jail, without the possibility of early r...

Oh Thank Heavens! Gossip Girl Was Picked Up for a Full Season!

gossip_girl.jpg Okay, so I've watched a few episodes of this show, and it's basically The O.C. if it happened on the Upper East Side. Like, almost verbatim. But here's what I don't get: Who is reading this girl's blog? And how has no one figured out who she is? I mean, there's a circle of like 100 people who give a shit about what's happening in the lives of these high-school kids. It's like if I had kept an "anonymous" blog about my high-school friends. Like 12 people would read it, and after abou...

And You Thought Fear Factor Was Disturbing …

From Bogota, Colombia:
The hit game show "Nothing But the Truth" has been canceled after a contestant won $25,000 for admitting she hired someone to kill her husband. Tuesday was the final day for the show, in which contestants attached to a lie-detector machine answered 21 increasingly invasive questions to win up to $50,000. A U.S version called "Moment of the Truth" is still expected to be launched on Fox in the coming months, along with spin-offs in England, Australia, Germany, Italy and Spain, according to Howard Schultz, the Los Angeles-based creator of the show. On the Colombian version, dollar-desperate contestants confessed everything from drug smuggling to homosexual prostitution before a studio audience packed with unsuspecting loved ones. The episode that sealed the show's fate was broadcast Oct. 2, when Rosa Maria Solano admitted she had hired a hit man to rub out her husband. "The crime couldn't be carried out because the hit man tipped off my husband and he ran away forever — God save me," said Solano after her revelation. Facing negative public reaction and the threat of legal action for being an after-the-fact accessories to crime, Caracol Television pulled the plug. Schultz, the creator of such reality TV hits as ABC's "Extreme Makeover," said he was unfamiliar with the controversial episode in Colombia, but did not fear it would slow the worldwide rollout. "We're very careful about the questions we ask," he said, "and would never sanction any criminal behavior."

Britney’s Going to Be Early For Something

britney_vma21.jpg She's late for rehearsals. She's late for performances. She's late for drug tests and visitations and court dates. But Britney Spears' latest album? It's going to be early. Britney's album -- the aptly named Blackout -- was originally supposed to be released on November 13. Her label has pushed the release date up to October 30, ostensibly because so much of it has leaked online already. "Due to these numerous unauthorized online leaks, the label is doing everything possible to pre...
