Okay, so I have this obsession with the Avril Lavigne song “Girlfriend” that I’m often loathe to discuss. But, you know what? That song pretty much rocks. And what rocks even harder is this remix of it, featuring Lil’ Mama. [popbytes]

Sigh. Britney Spears filed a restraining order against her mother. I’d care, but Paris Hilton gets out of jail in like an hour. [Derek Hail]

I love that Agent Bedhead just admitted on the Internet that she had a sex dream about Eli Roth. It makes me feel a lot better about that dream I had the other night that I went to jail and Paris Hilton was my cellmate and we were staring at each other naked and comparing our bodies. Anyway.

Historically, I’ve tended to fiercely disagree with Germany’s decisions about what type of people can and can not live there in peace. However, I fully support the recent decision to ban Tom Cruise. [Celebslam]

Eva Longoria wedding pictures … people still care … not sure why … wasn’t she on a TV show once? [Cele|bitchy]

WWE Wrestler and Family Found Dead

Chris Benoit WWE Wrestler and Family Found Dead in Atlanta Home

This is really, really weird (and sad).

WWE wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy and their son Daniel were all found dead in their Atlanta home today. Details are sketchy, but apparently Benoit had been scheduled to appear on a WWE show on Saturday. He called to first say he would be taking a later flight, and then to say he would not be attending the show at all, due to a family illness. According to one source, Benoit said both his wife and son were throwing up blood and he needed to stay to take care of them.

The WWE recently faked the death of Vince McMahon, but all details about that storyline have been pulled from their website. It seems this most recent death is no joke.

Authorities in Atlanta are currently investigating, and we’ll keep you posted.

Update: It looks like this is a double-homicide and suicide. Police are not searching for any suspects outside of the house. Very, very sad.

Paris Gets Out of Jail Tomorrow

Paris Hilton Out of Jail on Tuesday Will Do Interview with Larry King on CNN

The countdown’s on! While I was certainly among the ranks of those folks rooting for Paris to do some hard time, I have to admit that it’s been boring as hell in the gossip world since she’s been locked up. I mean, it hasn’t helped that Lindsay’s been in rehab at the same time, but, still, I’m kind of looking forward to a free Paris. Miss Hilton is scheduled to rejoin society sometime after midnight tonight, and she claims she’s a changed woman.

In a recent telephone interview with Ryan Seacrest, Paris announced that she plans to build a “transitional home” for women who don’t have a four-bedroom Hollywood Hills pad to return to after their jail stay. “These women just keep coming back because they have no place to go,” she said. Paris hopes the home will be “a place to get food and clothes on their backs,” and notes that this is “a really bad cycle and if we stop it now, we can make our community a better place.”

Paris continues to say that her “gratitude has gone up so much and I just realize that the media used me to make fun of and be mean about it.” Really, Paris? It took a jail stay for you to put that jigsaw together? Because there were a couple of clues before all this. I mean, we weren’t running photos of your vagina because we felt you were a likely Presidential candidate.

Paris’s first post-jail interview will be with Larry King on CNN (and the actual interview will be unpaid, although it’s likely CNN will pay licensing fees for the use of Hilton’s private photos and videos), after it seems ABC, NBC and CBS got frustrated when the behind-the-scenes negotiations were made public. For her part, Barbara Walters at ABC said she chose not to do the interview because she felt it was “tawdry. The whole thing somehow was beneath me. Besides, it was a no-win. If I did a tough piece and her tears started to flow, it would be, ‘Oh, there’s Barbara Walters making people cry again.’ Too soft, and I’d be criticized.”

Either way, folks, life gets interesting again tomorrow.

Who Didn’t Miss K-Fed?

K-Fed Rules

Everyone did. It’s impossible not to. Like your kid brother who wants to be an astronaut you’ve just got to smile and muss his hair up a bit every time you see him.

This is him at an after dinner party held by someone named Michele Merkin. Evidently she’s been the host of a show called Celebrity Drive-By which I’ve never heard of. Regardless she does have excellent hands with which to play the piano and I hope she’s taken advantage of that.
