Calum Best Is Wise

Good call Calum.

“I’m a bad boy. I go out and get drunk, I get high on cocaine and I do stupid debauched things with the wrong women. When I’m high I do wild stupid shit. I’m a red-blooded male and I’m addicted to sex. I don’t have to be like my dad, but I feel his blood running through my veins. I need to sort out my problems before it’s too late.”

So you have figured out the problem. The next step I think is to get some help. Maybe check into the same rehab as your girlfriend so that you can get some lovin while you know, trying not to kill yourself with booze like your dad.

Mr. T Knows Fashion Too

EvilT is our resident fashionista (distant relative of the sandinistas) but Mr. T deserves some credit on that front too. Don’t believe me? Want to be utterly confused? How about a wonderful look back at the beloved 80s?

Don’t say I never gave you anything. And feel free to use the comments section to explain exactly what the hell this is. They don’t seem to be selling anything, and it’s a rant with no context.

But I’ve said enough. Enjoy it.

Page Six is Retarded

Why is Page Six Retarded?…Because they ran this little blurb today.

CORNY crooner Michael Bublé isn’t entirely the ladies’ man he fancies himself to be. The never-bashful balladeer was spotted “boasting to anyone who would listen” in the bar at the Hotel Costes K in Paris the other night, “wearing this ridiculous vest and bragging to everyone about how women fall all over him and how amazing he is,” our witness reports. But when he tried out his moves by flirting with Emily Blunt, who was also at the hotel, he completely struck out.

Michael has been dating Emily Blunt for three years. Most people don’t “strike out” with their significant other. They actually live together in Vancover. I’m guessing that he was being a bit of a flirt and braggart because that is the kind of fellow that he is. Decoding that…yes he is a douchebag but he is Emily’s doucebag. Some fact checker totally just got fired.

J.C. Chasez is Totally Gay

Remember this blind item? In case you don’t, I’ll reprint it here:

Which still-closeted former boy-bander was making sure nobody got pictures of him with his handsome Spanish escort at a recent European charity event?

Evil T speculated that this referred to J.C. Chasez.

At the top of this post, you’ll find a picture of J.C. Chasez at the Life Ball charity event in Vienna, Austria on May 25.

Just sayin’.

Paula Abdul’s Conference Call Meltdown!

Not that this should come as a surprise to anyone, but our resident chihuahua-preservation guru had a nervous break-down on a conference call the other day. There is so, so much to say about this article, but I have so, so many other things to do right now, so I’m going to go ahead and let Page Six do my job for me right now. We’ll chat about this in more detail later.

She sobs on the tape: “I’ve never been treated this way and I’ve never seen anybody treated this way. This is just too much to stomach.” Abdul is assured by those hearing her wails, “You will be treated better starting right now.”

“I’ve been going through tremendous amounts of a difficult time,” said Abdul, who recently fibbed to her fans when she said she hurt her nose tripping over her Chihuahua. (We reported the real story last week – that Abdul threw a glass against the wall and a shard of it cut her face.)

Ranting about Bragman [her publicist], who apparently didn’t appreciate her enough, the petite former pop star says: “I do a call-in every week for OK! Magazine on ‘American Idol.’ Because of my brilliant job, they want to do a cover on me. I’m being told by Howard Bragman that I’m too old and no one will ever want to do a cover.

“I’m being tested. All I’ve ever wanted in my life is to be treated fairly and be treated with kindness. And I’ve never in my entire career been treated this way. The people who are supposed to take care of these things do not. I have to clean up after them everywhere they go. And I’m tired of it.”

Lindsay’s Dad Says She Was Hooked on OxyContin

Now that Lindsay Lohan’s father is out of jail, he’s doing everything he can to make up for all that lost time he could have spent using his daughter’s fame to further his own protecting his child from the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Most recently, Michael Lohan was talking to E!, revealing that, in addition to alcohol and cocaine, Lindsay has been abusing the painkiller OxyContin. Michael says:

“I spoke to the people treating Lindsay, because I wanted to make sure she was getting the right care. And I’m satisfied they are doing the right thing for her, helping her detox from the painkillers and things. That’s a very important step … And I learned they use the 12-step program, which includes a lot of lessons based on God’s teachings, so I was satisfied with that. First she needs to get clean, then she needs to let God into her life.”

Right, Michael. Thanks for all you’ve done to try to help your daughter get healthy over the past 21 years month and a half.
