Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Fashion Victim of the Week

RumerWillis.jpg

Rumer Willis decided that an ill-fitting top and some leopard print palazzo pants would be a great idea. It was not a great idea as seen here. I really think that girls who have not so pretty faces need to wear long hair. The pixie thing only works for Natalie Portman-equse beauties. Rumer is getting on my nerves just a bit. She has famous parents and some famous friends but seriously is getting up there in the fug department.

Kristin Still Getting Her Swag On

Kristin Swag

Kristin Cavallari, who really has done nothing of note since her turn as a bitchy high schooler on the reality show “Laguna Beach,” is seen here at the Kari Feinstein MTV Movie Awards Style Lounge getting her swag on. I think all this girl does is show up at Hollywood parties and get bags and shoes. She did an episode of Veronica Mars, a failed reality show “Get This Party Started” some indie movie that nobody saw and is set to grace the silver screen in “Spring Breakdown” in 2008.

I am surprised that she keeps getting invited to these things. When does your Laguna fame end? Seriously people.

Hilary Swank Kicks Off Potable Water Run

Hilary Swank Blue Planet Run

Two-time Academy Award winner and genuinely talented human being Hilary Swank did the unthinkable on Friday: she didn’t show up at Hyde. She didn’t get wasted. She didn’t get a DUI and she didn’t check into rehab. Instead, she helped kick off a round-the-world run to raise awareness of the world’s 1.1 billion people who lack access to clean drinking water. Swank was supporting Blue Planet Run, a project in which 20 runners will log 15,200 miles over 95 days. Each participant will run 10 miles at a time.

Hilary told the AP she had taken the “ordinary miracle” of clean drinking water “for granted far too many times.”

“Making safe drinking water available is everyone’s problem,” she said, “and it’s a problem it will take everyone to solve. It’s easy for me to show up today and talk about this. The real heroes are the 20 people who are actually running … and putting their lives on hold for the 95 days.”

For more about how you can help, by donating your time or your money, click here. $30 of your cash provides one person with safe drinking water to last a lifetime. That’s like the price of two beers at Hyde. You’ve got no excuse.

Barack Obama Is Definitely Not Getting the Red State Vote

Barack Obama Supports Gay Rights

Ultra-huge props to Presidential candidate Barack Obama for taking a fabulously pro-gay stance for a front-runner. Barack just released this statement with regards to Pride Month. He’s stopping shy of actually advocating gay marriage, or explicitly encouraging all states to pass civil union laws, but it’s a solid start:

Pride Month is a reminder that while we have come a long way since the Stonewall riots in 1969, we still have a lot of work to do.

Too often, the issue of LGBT rights is exploited by those seeking to divide us. But at its core, this issue is about who we are as Americans. It’s about whether this nation is going to live up to its founding promise of equality by treating all its citizens with dignity and respect.

It’s time to turn the page on the bitterness and bigotry that fill so much of today’s LGBT rights debate. The rights of all Americans should be protected — whether it’s at work or anyplace else. “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” needs to be repealed because patriotism and a sense of duty should be the key tests for military service, not sexual orientation. Civil unions should give gay couples full rights. And those who commit hate crimes should be punished no matter whether those crimes are committed on account of race, religion, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

This Pride Month, let’s make our founding promise of equality a reality for every American.

Thanks to Perez for the heads-up.

Lauren Hastings Wishes Lindsay Lohan the Best

Lauren Hastings, the young model who recently sat down to discuss her issues with Lindsay Lohan the clothes thief and raging bitch, is back at Buzznet to weigh in on the most recent developments in LiLoLand and talk about the party scene in Hollywood.

I don’t know why I dig these videos so much. There’s not much new here, but there’s something about this girl that’s just infinitely watchable.
