Eighty-seven years ago, when Willa Ford sang “I Wanna Be Bad,” we all kind of knew there was an ill-fated acting career to come. That it would culminate in her portraying Anna Nicole Smith in the late model’s biopic, though? I’d never have guessed. [Cele|bitchy]
Rachel Ray will not allow her audience members to wear sequins. That might seem cheesy. [Gabsmash]
Let’s all release our list of the Sexiest Women at the same time. That way all the individual lists can be especially meaningless. [CityRag]
Justin Timberlake and Madonna are collaborating. Ooh, I sure do hope this ends with some manner of on-stage kiss at the VMAs. [A Socialite's Life]
If Tom Cruise is taking Katie’s high heels, you know he’s not throwing them out. He’s saving them for when she heads out with Posh for the evening and he has the whole house to himself to play dress-up. [popbytes]
Tobey Maguire was so into rehab way before it was cool. Yeah, buddy. Whatever. [Celebslam]
Let the Hiltonizing begin, I suppose. You can only fight it so long. My darling Hayden Panettiere is licking another girl’s boob. [Allie]
A year of sobriety convinced Danny Bonaduce’s wife that he wasn’t going to get any better than this. The couple filed for divorce. [Glitterati]
Orlando Bloom takes a break from his busy schedule of dating increasingly famous women to explain how the world will end. [POTP]
The Gilded Moose takes on Trent Vanegas. And omg is it funny. [TGM]
Congratulations to Beet reader Rachel, who sent in a picture of her adorable 21-month-old daughter, Isabella. This picture just puts a smile on my face, so it’s our new background image. If you have a picture that you want as the background here, send it to us (check out the rules here first). We’ll be choosing our favorites and alternating the background.
You know the part of this site that exists around the text? That purplish-gray boring stuff? Well, we don’t really like it, and we have no idea what to do with it, so we’re trying a new game: using images our readers send in. Do you have an image you want us to use as the background? Send it in! Send all images (in JPEG form) to evilbeet (at) gmail (dot) com. We’ll start alternating the background image based on the images YOU send in.
Get creative, or don’t. Send in pictures of yourself, your friends, your dogs, your drawings, your hobbies, your closet, your math test, whatever. No pornography, and no photos of people who haven’t consented to having their image used (yes, it was really funny when your best friend got super trashed and peed on herself, but we’re not running the photo). Also, nothing that’s strictly advertising. We’ll try this out for a week or two, and if it goes well, we’ll continue. So show us what you’ve got, Beet readers.
It’s good to know that in this time of sort of crazy racist statements there are still guys out there holding it down for the real lunatics. Just watch this whole clip. I dare you. See where your jaw is afterwards.
I have no idea how I missed this, and special thanks to Beet reader Mike for pointing me in the right direction. As part of their “Win a Date with Brody Jenner” contest, Brody has been maintaining “video diaries” for Us Weekly (or, more accurately, someone at Us sat down with him for a 5-minute interview and they cut it up into like 20 “diary” entries). I’ve embedded some of them here. You can view them all here. You can also check out the videos of the 12 finalists in the contest here.
This is Drew’s first major beauty campaign. According to CoverGirl brass, “We partnered with Drew because she emulates the iconic image of CoverGirl with her fresh, natural beauty and energetic yet authentic spirit.” Drew is an especially appropriate icon because she smokes weed, and, if Kirsten Dunst has taught us anything, it’s that weed is for winners.
Remember this chick? She was the first (and only?) plus-size model to make it big. She had her own show on E!, I think. I just remember getting drunk a lot with my college boyfriend and watching her on TV, and we thought she was just the funniest thing ever. Like, “Hi, I’m Emme. The fat model.” That was her whole gig. “I’d probably be hot if I were thinner, but you’ll never know! Because I’m Emme, the fat model.” Oh, man. I wondered what happened to her. She showed up at the Brick Awards at the Nokia Theater in NYC last night. I had to post the pictures.
