Award-winning American pornographic actress Sasha Grey's sex scenes cut in Soderbergh's movie

 Award-winning American pornographic actress Sasha Grey's sex scenes in veteran director Steven Soderbergh's movie The Girlfriend Experience were cut after he decided they were not required. Soderbergh, 46, had discovered Grey, 21, in Los Angeles Magazine, and he was determined to hire her to play the part of a high-class NYC hooker in his new drama.

Buzz up!
But, oddly enough, even though she is an X-rated film star, she did not have to bare much or even do a sex scene. "Steven never really said if there was going to be a sex or scene or not, but in the outline it did say for three different scenes, 'Sex Scene with Chris', 'Sex Scene with Client B', 'Sex Scene with the Hobbyist'. I never really knew," Fox News quoted her as saying.


"But I knew he (Soderbergh) wouldn't have a sex scene for the sake of sex," she said. According to Soderbergh, he had looked closely at the script, and then decided "it wasn't necessary".

Porn Star Sasha Grey Lists Her Favorite Films

Porn stars can be smart; some are even PhDs. So it shouldn't be that much of a surprise that adult film actress Sasha Grey, who currently stars (non-pornographically) in Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience, likes great films. In fact, Karina wrote about Grey's cineaste tastes more than six months ago. But the movie geeks are nontheless excited this week over Grey's recent appearance on The Rotten Tomatoes Show, where she counted down her top favorite films. They are, in downward order, Stroszek, Fat Girl, Pierrot le fou, A Woman Under the Influence and Escape from New York.

Okay, so I'm as excited as any other blogger commenting on her choices, even if I'm not as surprised by them. Why shouldn't I be thrilled that someone has the same favorite Godard as myself? And how can I not be glad that someone else loves Stroszek, which is hardly a beloved movie, even for many Herzog fans. I'm not any bit a fan of her top pick, but that's fine. We're still plenty compatible…to produce a brand of pornos that parody classic art films.

Check out some other reactions from the blogosphere after the jump:

    * Guy Lodge at In Contention is surprised, but in a good way:

          I absolutely love this. It would appear that porn star Sasha Grey and highbrow film critic Glenn Kenny have more in common than just their mutual appearances in Steven Soderbergh's "The Girlfriend Experience." As this Rotten Tomatoes interview proves, Grey's own cinematic taste is discerning, to say the least.

    * Scott Weinberg at Cinematical may have fallen in love:

          …a porn star who not only adores Cassavetes, Breillat, and Herzog, but she speaks about them well enough to prove she's not faking it! (I hate porn stars who fake it.) And then, just to add a little tweak to the list, her #1 pick is so cool, it made me want to … give Sasha Grey a nice big kiss. On the cheek. Her face's cheek. Honest.

    * Commenting at JoBlo, "GroundlessNFree" thinks she's faking it:

          The first four seemed planned. Not that she didn't like the movies, but it's like if you asked me to write a thought out article versus asked me on the street and got my gut reaction, you'll get two different lists. Escape From new York seemed like the one she truly thought and asked herself, "what's my fave film?" She seemed much more genuine discussing it.

    * Scott Macaulay at Filmmaker Blog may not mind her faking it, so long as she's doing it for good:

          Sasha Grey continues her march through the jungles of mainstream media with this Current TV piece in which she lists her five favorite movies. Hey, given that she's using her promo time to promote Werner Herzog and Catherine Breillat, it's totally cool with us.

    * And just to prove Macaulay correct, here's a comment from admitted Grey fan "HaloedGriot" from Rotten Tomatoes:

          Wow, I seen the little icon without even knowing the name of the article and knew it was Sasha Grey with that devious smirk of hers…oh my goodness…I need a napkin…and maybe some Kleenex.

          I will be checking some of these films.

Finally, here's the clip of Grey counting down the titles, including commentary on why she likes each one:










"The Girlfriend Experience" Star Sasha Grey On Her Calling To Play Call Girl


 Sasha Grey, ingénue of adult film, made an unintended jump into mainstream film when Academy-award winning director Steven Soderbergh anointed her for his new film "The Girlfriend Experience". The porn industry sweetheart appeared in Las Vegas for a May 28th release party for the mix-reviewed escort exposé. Trendy Las Vegas eatery and nightclub Lavo housed the festivities.

On the pre-event red carpet, Grey fielded questions mainly related to her actress-director dynamic with Soderbergh. No boudoir techniques employed, no career-climbing tryst initiated. The relationship was and is a fateful union of artistry. However, Grey teasingly admits, "I would give him a chance if [Soderbergh's wife] Jules let me".

The young self-titled "performance artist" does owe it to the "Traffic" and "Ocean's 13" director for the unexpected opportunity to lead an experimental chronicle of a call girl. Grey's chance came when Soderbergh spotted a magazine article profiling her accession into pornographic gentry.

Plucked from limited notoriety, they handed her the role of high-class escort Chelsea. Grey was destined to be the film's salacious lead and its director's muse. Meanwhile, the heavyweight director became the porn star's maitre'd mainstream film, coaching her in the delicate balance of believable intimacy and stoic professionalism.

The 'Experience' was "not something that I ever sought out....it's amazing. You can always see the wheels spinning in his head". She added, "You would expect to hear one and do one thing. And he would come up with the last thing you could think of".

Grey understandably experienced a healthy dose of newcomer intimidation "at the beginning". After a little coaxing from the supportive production team was in order. "I had to loosen up a bit", she confessed. "I was really tense".

Soderbergh was there to ease the greenhorn into her mainstream debut. "He has a very quiet approach on set. He's not the cliché Hollywood director," Grey noted with appreciation. "You hear horror stories from people you know. Thankfully, he's not that type of person. It didn't expect him to be either. He's great".

As for future projects, the films "Smashcut" and "Quit" are in the can while another one is set start shooting in August. Add to that the recent launch of her own production company Grey Art and modeling "as it comes", you can understand how her talents are likely to keep the 21 year old busy this year.

Producing and directing films is her "next step". That prediction illustrates Grey's entrepreneurial confidence and charming coyness not readily found in someone of her age and occupation.

The young entertainer has yet to set a wedding date with photographer Ian Cinnamon. "We want to take a month off. In entertainment that is not an easy thing to do. We're married in the spirit. That's all that really matters."

There is no time to waste. Each moment of movie related buzz needs to be carefully preserved and then channeled into a long-term plan. With a jumpstart like "The Girlfriend Experience", strategizing on the next career step while avoiding a brand identity crisis will be Sasha Grey's most testing tasks at hand.










'Girlfriend Experience': Steven Soderbergh lures Sasha Grey over to the mainstream

Magnolia PicturesSasha Grey is a high-priced "escort" seeking more than clients in "The Girlfriend Experience."

REVIEW The Girlfriend Experience

In prostitute parlance, the "girlfriend experience" promises something extra. Not just cursory sex for money, the women provide companionship, conversation, and passionate kissing.

Director Steven Soderbergh tapped into this sidebar strain of the skin trade for his newest film, "The Girlfriend Experience." It features porn star Sasha Grey in her mainstream film debut. She plays Chelsea, a Manhattan "escort" who pockets about $2,000 an hour from clients, mostly businessmen, who tend to wine and dine her before heading to a hotel.

Chelsea dutifully chronicles all of it on her laptop: date, place, man, which dress and shoes she wore, what kind of sex they had.

The twist is Chelsea also has a live-in boyfriend, Chris (Chris Santos), a personal trainer looking to upgrade professionally. Chris is all cool and understanding about Chelsea's profession. He is, at least, until she announces that she's heading off for a weekend with a client she just met, because they really connected. The film, set last October, plays against the backdrop of the final weeks of the presidential election and major anxiety over the crashing economy.

Soderbergh glides easily between commercial hits ("Ocean's 11"), massive biopics ("Che"), and mini-movies. "The Girlfriend Experience" follows the path of Soderbergh's "Bubble," an ultra low-budget film set at an Ohio doll factory. In his mini-movies, he uses a lot of nonprofessional actors, shoots in natural light, and avoids flashy editing or camera gimmicks. In fact, in the tradition of Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu, he prefers to keep his camera locked down and let the scenes develop around the frame.

The results in "The Girlfriend Experience" are mixed. It looks absolutely fantastic, with Chelsea gliding through the low-light world of after-dark Manhattan before settling between the gold hues of hotel lamps and glistening glasses of wine. On the downside, Chelsea and Chris just aren't that interesting. At times, the film plays like yet another soggy reality TV show.

In the end, Chelsea is searching for something, and it isn't in the bedroom. "The Girlfriend Experience" is not a movie about sex. It's about relationships.

Catch the trailer:






"The Girlfriend Experience": Flat acting fails portrait of a call girl


When he's not making the "Ocean's Eleven" pictures for Hollywood or tackling large-scale art-house projects such as "Che," Steven Soderbergh dabbles in little experimental movies.

This probably adds to his skills as an artist overall, and sometimes the results (the oddball small-town "Bubble," for instance) are pretty cool.

The newest little one is "The Girlfriend Experience," a nonlinear, partly improvised look at the life of a specialized call girl.

The professional in question, Chelsea, provides her clients with something more than a functional roll in the sack. A certain amount of talking, intimacy and regular contact means her clients will receive -- you guessed it -- the girlfriend experience.

Soderbergh has cast a real-life porno star, Sasha Grey, as Chelsea. This must've seemed like an interesting idea, and if the audience is aware of Grey's day job, it certainly collapses a certain traditional boundary between actor and role.

But Grey herself is an inert presence, and whatever insights she might have into the business of deploying one's body as a commercial interest does not translate to the screen. In other words, there's a lot to be said for what real actors bring to a film.

As the movie unfolds, it becomes clear that we are watching different scenes from Chelsea's life, cut up so they are sometimes out of chronological order. She shares an unorthodox arrangement with Chris (Chris Santos), a personal trainer: They are in a committed relationship and live together, but it's all right for her to ply her trade during the week.

We see Chelsea interact with a couple of clients (there's nothing hardcore in the movie, and Soderbergh doesn't even expose much of Grey's anatomy), submit to an interview and meet a new man for whom she might be willing to waive her usual fee.

Shot and edited quickly, the movie is recent enough to have incorporated the financial plummet of fall '08. As a working girl, Chelsea is incessantly pondering the right course for her financial future.

Soderbergh also includes a scene in which a sexologist of some kind (played by Glenn Kenny, who used to review movies for Premiere magazine) offers to give Chelsea good publicity in exchange for a free preview of her talents. From this sequence and its punch line, I take it Soderbergh has more respect for prostitutes than he does for critics.

"The Girlfriend Experience" is the kind of experimental film that must have been more interesting to make than it is to watch. Soderbergh's ideas are alive and intriguing, but ideas alone don't make a film come alive.

"The Girlfriend Experience"

A high-priced call girl (played by porn star Sasha Grey in her first legit role) sorts through her commercial interests in Steven Soderbergh's nonlinear account. This is the kind of experimental movie that must have been more interesting to make than it is to watch, and Grey is an inert presence.

Porn star with a brain Sasha Grey moves into mainstream roles

"I have a really diverse fan base," says Sasha Grey, star of "The Girlfriend Experience."
"I have a really diverse fan base," says Sasha Grey, star of "The Girlfriend Experience."

Sasha Grey is moving beyond the X rating.

The megapopular adult film star — who gets about 3.5 million hits on Google on any given day — is starring in Steven Soderbergh's latest, "The Girlfriend Experience," which opens June 19 in Kansas City.

OK, so the role isn't such a stretch — a $2,000-an-hour Manhattan call-girl who offers actual friendship to her clients, much to the dismay of her personal trainer boyfriend, played by Chris Santos — but sex isn't the plot.

This is a Soderbergh affair, after all. Starring in the "Traffic" and "Ocean's 11" director's 20th feature film was "amazing," said Grey, from Exxxotica Miami Beach, last month.

"I'm a huge fan of his and being able to work with him was an incredible experience," said the Sacramento, Calif., native, born Marina Ann Hantzis.

Often called the porn star with a brain, Grey is blazing her own trail, not afraid to make enemies along the way. Namely Howard Stern, whom she called "a closet racist."

"It was a joke," said Grey of the much publicized incident (she told Rolling Stone she was going to drape herself in a Palestinian flag before meeting the shock jock). Safe to say, she never made it to his show.

"Out of all the people," she said. "Sorry he couldn't take a joke."

The actress, who has 165 movies under her belt, has started her own production company, Grey Art. She makes her directorial debut in "The &% Junkie," out this month.

"I've waited a long time for that," she says.

Other projects include a coffee-table-like sex philosophy book, an adult novelty line and another movie from Grey Art, "Smash Cut."

Not bad for someone who just turned 21 in March. Seems the nickname fits.

"I got in this business to challenge it," she says. "I saw a lack of creativity, speaking generally. It's always a challenge to continue to do things differently and make each thing better than the last."











What's So Wrong With Sasha Grey Liking A Good Gang Bang?

Those of you who've seen Steven Soderbergh's "The Girlfriend Experience" will know a little bit about Sasha Grey, who plays the main character. Those of you who are porn enthusiasts will know a hell of a lot more, seeing as Grey has been in more than 160 porn flicks over the past three years.  From "Teenage Whores 3" to "Anal Cavity Search 6," Sasha's done it all. (Or at least most of it.)

But while Grey's been a porn world bad ass for a while, starring in a Soderbergh film has, uh, exposed her to a more mainstream and art house audience. It's also opened her up to a s**t storm of criticism for participating in what many consider to be an exploitative industry.

But while it's easy to call Grey deluded for thinking that she's liberating women instead of promoting oppression, you'd have to ignore a hell of a lot of what she's saying in order to make the claim. During her 2007 appearance on "The Tyra Banks Show," an 18-year-old Grey kept it together while a wide-eyed, semi-psychotic looking Tyra essentially implied that Grey must have been abused as a child, even if she didn't, you know, realize it. There is, after all, no other reason a young lady would ever, ever get into porn.

Sasha waxed poetic on how she represents herself, on appreciating porn, and her willingness to do most anything experimental as a means of exploring her sexuality. Meanwhile, Tyra stared, mouth agape, throwing in patronizing one liners and refusing to believe that Sasha could possibly have any idea what she's talking about.

We're not quite ready to call Grey a feminist liberator, as some have suggested, but the outright condemnation, too, seems a bit rash. Sasha's 20 now and sticking by her original claim: porn allows her to explore her sexuality and no one has ever forced her to do anything she doesn't want to do. Is it really impossible to be a porn star without being exploited? What do you think?







Porn star Sasha Grey dishes on Girlfriend Experience

Porn sensation Sasha Grey stars in Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience.


The protagonist of Steven Soderbergh's new film The Girlfriend Experience is a poised young escort who services New York's philandering elite with uncommon élan.

Blankly charming and immaculately coiffed, Chelsea (Sasha Grey) is a strange and eminently 21st century creature — the call girl as image-conscious entrepreneur. Chelsea's precociousness as both a sex object and a self-promoter gains credibility by Grey's own back story: At the ripe old age of 21, the California-born performer is already a before-her-time legend in the porn industry and a mild pop cultural phenomenon.

"It did help me," says Grey when discussing the resonances between her own career and that of her onscreen alter ego. "But I'm not sure about the idea of 'credibility.' After all, we're not talking about a real person, we're talking about a character in a movie.

"I always try to be introspective (about what I do), whereas Chelsea's capacity for introspection is quite minimal. That's why she uses personology. It's an excuse so that she doesn't have to be responsible for her actions. If something goes wrong, it's in the cards."

Grey is referring to her character's pathological fidelity to a genre of New Age literature. In a crueler film, this might have simply been used as punch-line, but in The Girlfriend Experience — in theatres next week — it's clear that Chelsea's faith in "personology" is no more foolish than her high-rolling clients' faith in a collapsing economy (Soderbergh started shooting the same week that news broke of the mortgage crisis).

"I don't think that the film is trying to manipulate anybody's thinking about anything," says Grey, "whether it's the idea of prostitution as a business, or about the men who hire (prostitutes), or about the economy. Whereas another film might be looking to vilify or glorify its characters, I think Steven leaves things up to the audience."

Certainly, it's on the audience to decide whether Grey's fascinatingly opaque performance is evidence of subtle, controlled acting or simply a case of shrewd casting. In the film, Chelsea suffers the multi-syllabic slanders of a porn critic she's asked to review her services); this episode seems to refer to Soderbergh's ambivalence about the influence of critics, but Grey says that for her, it's simply best to not pay attention.

Soderbergh Cuts Porn Star's Sex Scenes from New Film
Soderbergh Cuts Porn Star's Sex Scenes from New Film
 


Respected director Steven Soderbergh discovered Sasha Grey while browsing through Los Angeles Magazine, and decided on the spot that he had to hire the porn actress to play her first legitimate film role.

While the film originally required three sex scenes from Grey, the director ultimately cut the three scenes, deciding they weren't necessary to the film's story.

"It is great to do both; it's unprecedented that a woman from the adult industry has been able to really juggle both at the same time," the 21-year-old said.

"If people enjoy what I do outside of adult films, there is room for growth and opportunity. I don't think ill be playing Zac Efron's girlfriend in anything soon or be cast in a teen movie but I'm okay with that. At the moment I'm actually shooting my directorial debut in the adult world."

Oddly enough, Grey didn't have to bare much of her body at all, since her character had no sex scenes. If her acting stands the test, there may be a future for her in non-rated-X films after all.

Still, don't be the least bit surprised if those cut sex scenes end up on the DVD for the film.  Talk about marketing!

Steven Soderbergh Hires Porn Star But Cuts All Sex Scenes | Exclusive: Jessica Simpson's Sensual New Fragrance And Photo Shoot Inspired By Tony Romo? | Quote of the Day: Heather Graham's Turn-On | Pop Tarts Seen & Herd

Steven Soderbergh Hires Porn Star But Cuts All Sex Scenes

After initially "discovering" Sasha Grey in Los Angeles Magazine, veteran director Steven Soderbergh was determined to hire the X-rated film star to play her first mainstream role: a high-class NYC hooker in his new drama "The Girlfriend Experience." But oddly enough, Gray didn't have to bare too much of her body or even do a sex scene.

"Steven never really said if there was going to be a sex or scene or not, but in the outline it did say for three different scenes, "Sex Scene with Chris," "Sex Scene with Client B," "Sex Scene with the Hobbyist." I never really knew," Gray recently told us. "But I knew he (Soderbergh) wouldn't have a sex scene for the sake of sex."

PHOTOS: Click for pics of Sasha Grey in "The Girlfriend Experience."

Soderbergh later told Tarts that he looked closely at the script, but decided "it wasn't necessary." But even despite her rave reviews in her first non-adult film, Gray is far from parting from her porn ways.

"It is great to do both, it's unprecedented that a woman from the adult industry has been able to really juggle both at the same time," the 21-year-old said. "If people enjoy what I do outside of adult films, there is room for growth and opportunity. I don't think ill be playing Zac Efron's girlfriend in anything soon or be cast in a teen movie but I'm okay with that. At the moment I'm actually shooting my directorial debut in the adult world."

And is Academy-Award winning Soderbergh, who has directed/written/produced over 30 films in his 20-year career, getting ready to retire?

"I have a few more issues to explore on the checklist for the next five years and then I might be done," he admitted to Tarts. "I can feel myself running out of ideas."












MILF Demi Delia Get a Different Kind of Intimate With Mommy XXX

Read, watch, review and rate Mommy XXX »

        * Herself: Demi Delia
        * Himself: Randy Sparks

The porn community is an odd one, made up as it is of people with relaxed sexual morals but oftentimes the same cravings for security and family that those in less X-rated professions might share. And that's the unexpected surprise of Mommy XXX, a new reality series from Crackle that chronicles the life of Demi Delia, an actively working porn star with two teenage children and a ginormous rack.

The format is pretty straight-up reality documentary, paced well for the web medium with relatively few signs of staged scenarios, and those interviewed are remarkably candid about their lives and opinions. There's a sense that the producers are hoping to invoke the same outrageous behavior of The Osbournes from this clan, but that's hardly the case with Brandi and Chris, who love their mom but express their teenage rebellion by eating vegan and actively rejecting her porn star lifestyle. In a episode provided for review, the kids bail out early from their mom's birthday party, Chris stating flatly, "I hate porn stars — they're gross." Given what he's probably seen during his lifetime, you can hardly blame him for saying so.

Delia's family consists of more than her children, as she seems constantly surrounded by friends from the industry, who make even a trip to the plastic surgeon into a party. There's a lot of potential for interesting stories from this set-up, most especially the relationship between Demi and her ex-husband Randy Sparks, a "legendary" porn star with whom she is still friendly. But the awkward tension between the two former spouses is clear, especially when, in an episode provided for review, the two work together in a sex scene. But as they're both old pros, the scene goes well — except, of course, for some back and neck trouble. So far, there's not much information about Demi's background, how she got her start in porn, or even the identity and whereabouts of Brandi and Chris's father (no, not Randy), material which will hopefully be fodder for the upcoming 12 episodes.

The title is catchy but too obvious, and many of the little touches that go into an episode (using clown horns to bleep out profanity, superimposing smiley faces and hearts over the many instances of nudity) are cutesy enough to detract from the intimate nature of the character portrait here. Because sure, Mommy XXX dances often on the TMI line, especially in the first episode, which provides a blunt look at the highly unnatural process by which Demi and her fellow porn stars attain their unnatural curves. But the real intimacy is the show's candid approach to the conflicts driving Demi's life. In interview segments, the chyron text labels Demi as two things: porn star and mother of two. The unasked question is — for how long exactly can she be both?







Porn Star Moms And Softball, 'Mommy XXX' and 'All Stars' Coming To Crackle

Mommy XXX on Crackle Oh Crackle. It's really no secret that you're after that coveted young male demo, and the latest two additions to the summer web series roster should score some points in that game: Mommy XXX and All Stars.

Mommy XXX, a new reality series goes after one of the only unclaimed plots on the reality landscape, porn stars mommies. The show centers around a typical real-life family who's matriarch, Demi Delia, happens to be a Playboy model turned adult film star. The single mom raises her 14 year-old daughter — a straight-A student — and her aspiring punk rocker son.

Where it gets interesting, and perhaps controversial once the mommybloggers catch wind of it, is their boarding-house domestic situation:

    Dinner conversations are guaranteed to be like nothing you've ever heard before at Demi's home - known as "the Ranch" - a large compound in The Valley where porn wannabes, naive newcomers to the adult film world, and even the occasional eighth grader can all spend the night.

An interviewer in the preview trailer (above) noted, "you're like the Osbournes but with dildos and lube."








Mommy XXX: New reality show mixes motherhood and porn

Just your average reality show family
 

What would it be like to have a porn star for a mom?  You can find out Thursday, June 18, when Mommy XXX premieres on Sony Pictures Entertainment's new web video site, Crackle.com.  The show will follow Demi Delia, an adult film actress, and her two teenagers. There will be birthday parties (with porn stars) and more mundane stuff like trips to the doctor.  Standard fare for reality TV, even one with XXX in the title.

Of course, in the age of Jon and Kate Plus 8, I'm more concerned about the kids than the moms.  Mommy XXX also follows two teens, the son and daughter of Delia.  Being a teen is hard enough; add to that being on a reality show about your porn star mother, and it is sure to get a little dicey.  While I'm sure the teens think they understand what it means to be followed around by cameras, it is probably pretty hard to say no to your mom if she really wants you to participate.  The show will apparently be following along to Delia's daughter's first gynecological appointment, which seems to be such an invasion at a very awkward and private moment.  The teen may feel fine with the extra guests at her appointment, but when life is captured on film for reality TV, there is no such thing as changing your mind.  Once it airs, there is no turning back.  Of course, without the kids, Mommy XXX just becomes XXX, and there isn't much unusual about that anymore.

I actually have no problem with the mom- she has a job, she takes care of her family, not much different from lots of other families.  But splashing kids onto a reality show can have sad consequences.  There are plenty of examples of teens who have not fared well after being on a reality show- just think of Daniel, the son of Anna Nicole Smith, or Jack Osborne, son of Ozzie Osborne.  Of course, these kids had unusual lives already, so perhaps the cameras didn't contribute to their struggles with drugs.   I just hope teens from Mommy XXX do ok.  From the preview they seem like smart, good kids who truly love their mother.  I wish them luck!








'Mommy XXX' Debuts With A Deeper Look At Porn Star Life

(Ed. Note: Announced back in May, Crackle's new reality series Mommy XXX premieres today. Our reviewer Jonathan Hludzinski got an early look at the season for this review.)

Mommy XXX on Crackle Although Mommy XXX is a bit of a misnomer, this behind the scenes look into the upper-middle class home of porn star Demi Dalia, created by Steve Slome and John Ferrie, is at times fascinating, titillating and disturbing. As good as any of the current lifestyles of quasi-celebs reality fare on TV today, this actually quietly provides a deeper and perhaps darker look into a life you'll probably never have.

The music and graphics and fluid camerawork will have you pleasantly smiling throughout, perhaps even thinking, 'well, gee, that's not so bad'. But the few moments with Demi's son, Chris, might sway your opinion. We don't get much of him but when we do he's not so keen on his mother's breast implant surgery in episode one, or her birthday party which includes her porn star friends in ep three and in ep two, though he doesn't talk specifically about the scene she's shooting with ex-husband and legend Randy Spears, he does mention that he hates porn stars.

It bums me out a little bit because the poor kid can't escape it, but the amazing thing is: he loves her. He says so in empathy of her surgery and what she has to go through. And then with sister Brandy he paints her a welcome home sign, which is kind of sweet. So Demi must be doing something right. Unfortunately, we don't get to see much of it.

Crackle's Mommy XXXThe show, which brands itself as the suburban lifestyle of a porn star mom, spends the majority of the time in its first three episodes giving us very small glimpses into her family life while spending more time on her professional lifestyle. On one hand I have a strong desire to see more of the family life, but then again the show might not be so pleasant if more of her son's vitriol were unleashed in a less controlled environment (his comments are made interview style). We do get to meet ex-husband Spears and there is a lot of time spent hanging around the house, so it's not all business, but I have yet to see any family dinners or mom and child heart-to-hearts – I'm assuming (hoping) they happen.

As for Demi's professional and social life, episode two, which has her shooting a scene for her upcoming website with Spears is the deepest and most interesting of the bunch. To see these two, albeit briefly, talk to the camera about having sex for the first time since their divorce in front of forty-five people (on set) is just plain interesting. That coupled with the fact that Spears arrives complaining of back pain and Demi later hurts her neck, turns these porn stars into actual people with problems that you or I might have. Add to the mix that it looks like they are actually shooting the scene in Demi's home and I'm hooked, if a little disturbed as well.

Production is great, it could easily be on television. Story editing and whatnot is all working well and the people in and around Demi's life are interesting and nicely portrayed in a non-exploitative way which helps make them feel more real and make me empathize that much more. The prevailing feeling being, these are relatively normal people in a very strange profession. Now, of course, one can only guess what's been left on the cutting room floor, but they do a good job of making it so I'm not left asking.










 Leighton Meester the Latest Sex Tape Leak Victim

Can't a girl videotape herself having sex in peace nowadays? Apparently not...

When this story first crossed our path, we were quick to call bull. After all, these supposed sex tape, nude photo, Miley Cyrus performing not-so-Christian things with her mouth stories are a dime a dozen - and often false.

And, really? Leighton Meester? Yeah, she plays a catty diva character on her show "Gossip Girl," but in real life, she's seemed pretty squeaky clean. She's even got a whole born-in-prison sob story to go along with her girl-next-door looks.

Well, it looks like the dirty truth is slowly leaking out (or, perhaps...spurting? Sorry, couldn't resist). According to gossip site TMZ, a video of the starlet doing some naughty things with her then-boyfriend was being shopped around earlier today. A deal has since been reached because the video has been posted on (link NSFW) CelebHotline. The site shows stills of a nude woman who either is Meester or just looks a lot like her from the video to prove it's legit.

Word on the street is that the video consists mostly of innocuous shots of her nude with her boyfriend, but there is one instance of a...wait for it...foot job?

Leighton Meester's rep has yet to issue a comment...but, boy, are we excited.











Leighton Meeser's sex tape is circulating in the market place.
Meeser's Sex Tape Circulating

Leighton Meeser's sex tape is circulating in the market place.

TMZ.com recently reported that Leighton Meester from "Gossip Girl" has a sex tape with her boyfriend. It is said to be circulating in the sex tape marketplace. The video was created a few years ago with Meester in her birthday suit. Celebhotline.com is making attempts to get their hands on the tape. Kevin Blatt, a spokesperson for the site revealed to TMZ, "We've seen the tape and we're hoping to close the deal."

With a "Gossip Girl" movie in the works, Meester might have more to handle than she expected.

"A 'Gossip Girl' movie could be compared to a 'Sex and the City'-type of movie. I think that would be kind of hot," she said in regards to the upcoming movie. There is obviously another film that she's starring in that some might find even hotter. As of now, the focus for the "Gossip Girl" cast is on the show's upcoming season.








Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester, Latest Star in Internet Sex Tape Scandal
Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester, Latest Star in Internet Sex Tape Scandal
 

Sex tapes and celebrities go together like bread and butter. In the past few weeks, sex tapes, explicit photos and rumors of both have repeatedly surfaced on the web, baring the private lives of everyone from housewives to screenwriters for the world to see. Now, the latest victim is TV's favorite Upper East side Princess, Leighton Meester.

A few weeks ago, explicit photos of Milk screenwriter and Oscar-winner Dustin Lance Black surfaced on numerous sites, including the pop culture hub PerezHilton .

Black, who has been an outspoken advocate for LBGT rights across the country responded to the scandal saying, "It is unfortunate that individuals and other outside parties are trying to profit from material which is clearly private. I have had the privilege to speak to people across the country, both gay and straight, on a number of critical issues including safe sex. More important than the embarrassment of this incident is the misleading message these images send. I apologize and cannot emphasize enough the importance of responsible sexual practices."

Real Housewife of New Jersey, Danielle Staub, is currently battling her own sex tape issues, after a break up with her 27-year-old boyfriend Steve Zalewski, who recently divulged explicit details about their private lives, telling Star Magazine that, "She cost me so much money, why shouldn't I make a few dollars?"

But the latest, and youngest celeb to become a part of the neverending sex tape scandal is Gossip Girl's reigning queen of mean, Ms. Leighton Meester. The tape, which sources claim was shot a few years ago with one of Meester's ex-boyfriend's is allegedly being shopped around on the internet.

According to numerous reports, the site Celebhotline  is negotiating for the video. "We've seen the tape and we're hoping to close the deal," the company's spokesperson Kevin Blatt told TMZ .

After issuing his statement to the press, Dustin Lance Black took to legal action to have his photos removed from the internet, and though it is likely that Meester's camp will do the same, it's hard to backtrack once the damage is done.

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester's alleged sex tape has gone viral. Meester's sex tape seems like a plot for an episode of her hit show Gossip Girl but apparently her life mimics her art; a spokesman for Celebhotline.com said in a statement, "We've seen the tape, and we're hoping to close the deal."

    Celebhotline.com has screen shots of what looks like the buzzed-about sex video that reportedly has been shopped around on its site.

    TMZ reports the private video was shot a few years back by her then-boyfriend and shows Leighton nude – and the antics of her talented tootsies.
   
   









A Leighton Meester Sex Tape?!? OMG, XOXO!
Filed under: Leighton Meester, Sex Tapes

Good morning, Upper East Siders! Spotted: A sex tape of Leighton Meester (star of the CW's hit show Gossip Girl) and her boyfriend!

Yes, according to TMZ, a video of 22-year-old Leighton Meester having sex with her boyfriend is reportedly being shopped around L.A., and a deal is close.

The sex tape was shot a few years back, with Leighton in mostly innocuous nude scenes - with several big exceptions. One involving her very talented feet.

WTF? And how psyched is Tanner Pope from The Bachelorette right now!

Leighton Meester is dating Sebastian Stan, an actor from Kings and a recurring guest star on Gossip Girl over the past two seasons. But if the sex tape is a few years old, it isn't clear who the (lucky) dude co-starring in it with her is.

Leighton: Sex Tape Star?

Looks like Blair Waldorf has been a very bad girl ...

Plenty of bogus sex tape rumors pop up on the Internet, but this one seems fairly legit. TMZ reports that a company called celebhotline  is negotiating the rights to the Leighton Meester sex tape and quotes a source at said website.

The company's spokesperson, none other than notorious sex tape broker Kevin Blatt, said: "We've seen the tape and we're hoping to close the deal."

Reps for the Gossip Girl cutie did not comment. Stay tuned ...










   
Leighton Meester Sex Tape Scandal (NSFW Photos)

leighton-meester-sex-tape-leaked-photos

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester is involved in a new scandal. It seems like there is a tape about to be bought by a company that distributes celebrity sex tapes online with Leighton having sex with her boyfriend. The company's spokesperson says, "We've seen the tape and we're hoping to close the deal."

The video that was shot a few years ago includes nudies, hot sex and some kinky scene where the actress uses her feet… we don't even want to know! Leighton hasn't released a statement yet but we are pretty sure it's really her (NSFW photos below).

Leighton Meester's Sex Tape Reportedly Being Shopped Around

TMZ has just reported that a sex tape featuring the "Gossip Girl" actress and an unidentified boyfriend has been shopped around.
Leighton Meester

Small screen actress Leighton Meester joins the long list of Hollywood celebs who get caught in sex tape scandal. A new report has just been made public by TMZ, claiming the "Gossip Girl" actress is having a sex tape which is being shopped around.

The sex tape is said to be taken few years back and shows her having sex with boyfriend, whose identity isn't disclosed. The site writes that the footage "shows Leighton in mostly innocuous though nude scenes -- with several big exceptions ... one involving her very talented feet."

While there hasn't been a single evidence provided to prove the existence of the reported sex tape, TMZ has obtained a confirmation from a spokesperson for a company called celebhotline , which is negotiating for the video, "We've seen the tape and we're hoping to close the deal."

A confirmation can't be obtained just yet from Leighton's camp regarding the sex tape report.






Leighton Meester Sex Tape Coming Your Way

Gossip Girl cutie Leighton Meester will soon join the likes of Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, because there is a sex tape with her name on it being shopped around.

According to TMZ, the tape, which was shot a few years ago, shows Leighton in "mostly innocuous though nude scenes, with several big exceptions, one involving her very talented feet."

A company called celebhotline  is currently negotiating the deal and the tape is expected to hit the internet any day now.

The company's spokesperson, Kevin Blatt said, "We've seen the tape and we're hoping to close the deal."

It's such a shame that a young talented girl like Leighton will soon be the center of a scandalous video like this.

Girls like Paris and Kim needed the tape to gain celebrity status, Leighton doesn't. So sad. Are you shocked by the news?






Leighton Meester Sex Tape -- XOXO

Leighton Meester Apparently the deal has been closed, because celebhotline.com has pics of what looks like the video on its site.

Spotted ... "Gossip Girl" star Leighton Meester having sex with her BF... on video.

We've learned a Meester tape is being shopped around town. It was shot a few years back, and shows Leighton in mostly innocuous though nude scenes -- with several big exceptions ... one involving her very talented feet.

We're told a company called celebhotline.com is negotiating for the video. The company's spokesperson, Kevin Blatt told us, "We've seen the tape and we're hoping to close the deal."

We contacted Leighton's rep but so far ... no comment.








Gossip Girl Leighton Meester sex tape on line: The game's afoot
 
 

Can't a girl just have sex anymore?

Not, it appears if you're a celebrity. You want to get your best side on video, of course, and then...maybe even years later, you go for the big time. Move over Paris Hilton, now it's time to watch Gossip Girl Leighton Meester do the clothes-optional boogie.

A sex tape revealing Meesters' mister and the American actress is on the auction block, reports TMZ.com.

The site says most of Meester's nude shots are fairly innocuous, but there's a little hanky-panky "involving her very talented feet."

The tape, apparently made several years ago, features....wait a minute! Did you say "feet!" Score one for fetishists everywhere.

A celeb-porn website is boasting Friday it has purchased the Meester tape and anyone can watch it...but cyber-voyeurs will have to pay for the privilege. A fee for the feet.

The timing of the sex-tape becoming public is a little suspect. These things can be embarrassing, sure, but they can also garner the subject(s) a windfall of free publicity (here, for example).

Meester has a dance album scheduled to come out later this year and has upcoming appearances on the big screen in The Roommate and, ironically, Date Night.

So the actress, famously born to a pot-smuggling mom serving time in a Texas prison, may indeed have her toe on the pulse of the nation.










'Gossip Girl' Leighton Meester's nude sex tape is allegedly on the Web


EdWestwic_James_56990586_600

"Gossip Girl" Leighton Meester has a wild side. And we're not just talking about on the popular series in scenes with her GG character, Blair Waldorf's, on-again, off-again lover, Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick).

Leighton-meester-sex-tape Celebhotline.com has screen shots of what looks like the buzzed-about sex video that reportedly has been shopped around on its site.

TMZ reports the private video was shot a few years back by her then-boyfriend and shows Leighton nude – and the antics of her talented tootsies.

Oh, Lordie. There goes Leighton's shoe spokesmodel career.

Celebhotline.com spokesman Kevin Blatt told TMZ earlier "We've seen the tape, and we're hoping to close the deal."

Leighton's rep has -- so far -- issued no comment. Our only comment is that we are not willing to join the site – even with a free seven-day trial – to see this salacious video. And we bet we're not alone.

Leighton Meester in sex tape rumors

Leighton Meester is at the center of a sex tape scandal after stills from a red-hot home movie allegedly featuring the "Gossip Girl" star appeared online.

TMZ  reports a film of the actress romping with her boyfriend is being offered around various media outlets, including celebhotline .

And the rumors gathered weight when still images allegedly taken from the sex tape, showing a woman who bears a striking resemblance to the actress, were posted online on Friday.

According to TMZ , the short movie was shot several years ago and shows Meester in "mostly innocuous" nude scenes with her then-boyfriend.

A spokesman for celebhotline  tells TMZ, "We've seen the tape and we're hoping to close the deal."

Meester's representative had not issued a comment as WENN went to press.








Leighton Meester sex tape being shopped - report; 'Gossip Girl' caught on video with boyfriend?

Has Leighton Meester been as naughty - or maybe even naughtier - than her 'Gossip Girl' character Blair? Leighton Meester at the MTV Movie Awards on May 31, 2009.
Celebrity sex tapes

Is being caught on camera good or bad for a star's career?

Good - hey, any publicity is good publicity!

Bad - anything that might draw comparisons with Paris Hilton is very, very bad.

Depends on what kind of career track they're on, wink wink.


Poor Leighton Meester. She never seems to get quite as much attention as her blithe blond goddess costar Blake Lively.

That may be about to change - for all the wrong reasons.

TMZ.com is reporting that a videotape of Meester having sex with her boyfriend is making the rounds in the celebrity sex tape marketplace.

A company called celebhotline.com was trying to get its hands on the tape, and it looks as if they have - what appeared to be still shots from the video were live on the site by late Friday morning.

The company's spokesperson Kevin Blatt had earlier told TMZ, "We've seen the tape and we're hoping to close the deal."

The alleged video was made a few years ago and shows Meester in her birthday suit. Nothing kinky, except perhaps a little fancy footwork on the ingenue's part, according to TMZ.

What would Dorota say?







Leighton Meester has a sex tape?

leightonmeestersexttape.jpgI love a job that forces me to search for "Leighton Meester sex tape" on a work-based computer network and not get me in trouble.

Yes, a Leighton Meester sex tape filmed a few years ago is being shopped around the Internet, and it appears celebhotline.com has the images to prove its veracity. (Note: That site is seriously NSFW, even at my W.) The site claims to have seen the tape of the "Gossip Girl" star and is in negotiations for its rights.

Just to be clear, Pet Rock has no clue if this tape exists or not, so this is just reporting and commentary on what's been circulating. Call it our "Lauren Conrad Factor."

According to dozens of Internet reports -- we're guessing they each wrote of each other's reports -- the tape is somewhat tame, save for something to do with her feet.

The guess here is that this tape will find its way to the bit torrents pretty soon. The crazy guess is that is a "Gossip Girl" ploy by Chuck Bass' uncle Jack Bass. We know that can't be true, but it would be really funny if it were. Or maybe a little Justine Chapin-Vincent Chase "Entourage" tape? Yes, we k

 'Real Housewives's Staub on sex tape?

'Real Housewives's Staub on sex tape?

The ex-boyfriend of Real Housewives Of New Jersey's Danielle Staub is alleged to have videotaped the pair having sex, reports have claimed.

According to The New York Times, Steve Zalewski is in possession of two tapes featuring the two engaging in various carnal acts, which he plans on selling.

"I'm definitely weighing up my options as far as selling them and getting them out there," he told Star magazine. "She cost me so much money, why shouldn't I make a few dollars?"

The 27-year-old said that during the filming of the Bravo reality series, Staub borrowed money from him to keep up appearances with the other Housewives.

"She tries to look affluent. But sometimes she couldn't pay the household bills or buy food. Even then, she'd want to borrow 20 grand from me to buy jewellery!" he said.

Zalewski added that the reality star enjoyed the excitement of making love in public places.

"Not only does she want to have sex all the time, but she loves the thrill of doing it in public places, where she might get caught."

Staub had her past questioned during the run of the show, when it came to light that she was involved in a number of criminal activities.









The Hills: Lauren Conrad Speaks Spencer and Sex Tape on 'The View'
            
the-hills-lauren-theview.JPG
Despite her stint on The Hills over and done with, Lauren Conrad is still the subject of numerous controversies.  She may have wanted to put all that behind her, but there's no doubt it's going to follow her everywhere.  On a recent appearance on The View, the reality TV starlet discussed her upcoming book.  However, she couldn't help comment on the rumor that's been plaguing her lately: the one about her alleged sex tape.

Even though she was brought over to introduce her novel, LA Candy, there were more pressing matters to attend to.  Talk show co-host Elisabeth Hasselback brought up the issue of Spencer Pratt's supposed apology, and suddenly caught the star off-guard.

More on...The Hills >>

When asked about the sincerity of Pratt's apology, Lauren Conrad replied: "Umm...I mean, to be perfectly honest, I wasn't on the other line of that call.  That was filmed and I wasn't on the other end."

She went on: "I didn't even know about it.  So no, I didn't get an apology.  He's lying." This raised the question about her attendance to the Speidi wedding, and Lauren Conrad only replied by saying she went because she might soon regret not going.

Her fellow co-stars Spencer and Heidi Pratt have appeared on The View earlier this week, admitting that Spencer had lied about the inexistence of Lauren Conrad's sex tape.  It was an issue dating back in 2007, but was revisited all of a sudden.

Spencer Pratt went on to say that he took back his words because Heidi wanted Lauren at their wedding.  He apologized for spreading Lauren's sex tape story and told the hosts of The View: "I said I'm sorry because [Conrad] said, 'I will come to the wedding if you say I'm sorry' -- for something I didn't even do."

When the talk show's co-host Sherri Shepherd asked whether or not he didn't actually leak the information, Spencer simply stated, "It's not a rumor.  It was fact."







TMZ is reporting that Gossip Girl starlet Leighton Meester has recorded a particularly freaky sex tape, and CelebrityHotline.com is now offering it for sale.
 
 
As the father of a 1 year-old and older brother of a 16 year-old, I know I should be up in arms about this, I do.  It's just that, well, I can't summon the outrage anymore.  It seems that every female celebrity worth her Botox has a sex tape out now and, quite frankly, it's getting old.
 
As a red-blooded guy, I know I should be excited about this but, well, it's already old news.  Sorry Leighton, you're about two years late to the party.  Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Rob Lowe, Pamela Anderson, and Tonya Harding already have the market cornered.
 
When even Screech has a sex tape, you know it's jumped the shark.
 
But at what point did it become so commonplace for women held as role models (and the men they, ahem, love) to think it acceptable to record and then distribute pornography.
 
Look, I'm no prude.  I know the internet is teeming with far dirtier smut that any unsupervised 10 year-old can access at a moment's notice, but Hollywood seems to be not only accepting such behavior from it's young women, but condoning it.
 
Paris Hilton's popularity exploded after her tape surfaced, and one could argue that Kim Kardashian's popularity stems almost exclusively from hers...giving new meaning to the phrase "porn star."
 
So congratulations, Leighton, you're about to hit new heights of celebrity and while you'll publicly protest the "invasion of your privacy," you'll privately revel in its benefits.








Steve Zalewski May Sell Danielle Staub Sex Tape
Filed under: Danielle Staub, Sex Tapes

Danielle Staub's sordid past was the subject of an amazing fight on Monday's finale. Now it looks like it may continue to haunt her - sex tape style!

Steve Zalewski claims he has videos of The Real Housewives of New Jersey star performing sex acts - on him and on herself - and may sell them.

Her ex-boyfriend, 27, whom Danielle dated and dumped on the Bravo reality hit last week, says the 46-year-old Staub was a raging nymphomaniac.

"Not only does she want to have sex all the time, but she loves the thrill of doing it in public places, where she might get caught," he says.

"She wanted to make love in restaurant bathrooms every time we went out — she'd get excited and say, 'The people can hear you doing it outside!'"

Danielle Staub and Steve Zalewski had a good run. A sex-filled one.

Other locales in which Steve Zalewski porked Danielle Staub include the back patio of her home, in cars, at a police firing range (!?) and a crowded park.

But the two went through a bad breakup, fueled in large part by Staub's penchant for borrowing large sums of money from him, Zalewski says:

"She tries to look affluent. But she couldn't pay the household bills or buy food. Even then, she'd want to borrow 20 grand from me to buy jewelry!"

Now Steve is turning to the best possible way of recouping some of his cash: distributing a Danielle Staub sex tape - or tapes! to the top bidder.

"I'm definitely weighing my options as far as getting it out there," Zalewski said. "She cost me so much money, why shouldn't I make a few dollars?"








New Jersey Housewife Danielle Staub's ex-boyfriend to release sex tape Real Housewife Sex Tape Scandal

Read More: ex-boyfriend, scandal, sex tape
The drama just won't stop for Real Housewife of New Jersey Danielle Staub. We have to admit, we can't get enough of her outlandish antics on the show from blatantly dating for money to feuding with the other women once a damaging book about her checkered past called Cop Without A Badge was unveiled. The book claims she was a stripper and kidnapper among many other jaw-dropping allegations.  The New Housewife
 
Well, now there's news of a Danielle sex tape—the first sex tape from the Real Housewives franchise. And who is revealing the tape? None other than Danielle's much younger boy toy Steve who she dated and then dumped on the show. It was clear that her libido was high as in one episode Danielle famously asked Steve to join her in the bathroom while they were out to dinner. But things were a lot steamier between the two behind the scenes. Steve claims that he has a video of Danielle engaged in sex acts—with him and solo—that he's threatening to release.
 
He told Star magazine that, "Not only does she want to have sex all the time, but she loves the thrill of doing it in public places, where she might get caught." He went on to say that "She wanted to make love in restaurant bathrooms basically every time we went out — she'd get all excited and say, 'The people can hear you doing it outside!'" How To Have Sex In Public
 
Turns out the reason Steve would betray his ex by selling the tape is because he needs to make back the thousands of dollars he lent to Danielle while they were dating. "She tries to look affluent," he says. "But sometimes she couldn't pay the household bills or buy food. Even then, she'd want to borrow 20 grand from me to buy jewelry!" Why It's Better To Marry For Money
 
Well if Steve does put this sex tape out there, we're sure Danielle's fellow housewives are going to have a lot to say about it—behind her back and to her face—on season two!

A Real Housewife Danielle Staub Has Some Real Freaky Sex Tapes!!!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey may have ended with a bang, but the drama has just begun for Danielle Staub.

On the show's season finale, the housewives had a bitter, table-flipping battle over a book written about the Jersey cougar, detailing her past criminal and sexual exploits. Now, a sex tape might be on the way and you'll never guess who wants to market it?! (No, it isn't Dina and Caroline- that was so two days ago.)

It's actually Danielle's ex, 40 27-year old Steve Zalewski, whom Danielle had dated and broken up with on the reality show. Steve says that he has some racy stuff to share, as Danielle is quite the exhibitionist.

"Not only does she want to have sex all the time, but she loves the thrill of doing it in public places, where she might get caught," he says. "She wanted to make love in restaurant bathrooms basically every time we went out — she'd get all excited and say, 'The people can hear you doing it outside!'"

Very classy!

With the popularity of the franchise, Steve is ready to make a quick buck off her celebrity and is ready to sell some steamy naked videos of Danielle having sex with him…and herself! He suggests, she owes him enough to justify the sale: "She tries to look affluent. But sometimes she couldn't pay the household bills or buy food. Even then, she'd want to borrow 20 grand from me to buy jewelry!"









Rihanna 'sex tape' declared a hoax

NOT REAL: An alleged sex tape featuring pop star Rihanna has been declared a hoax.
Rihanna stars in raunchy video Rihanna to testify against Brown Rihanna says no to Playboy shoot Neighbours sue Rihanna over lawns Chris Brown court delay denied Rihanna in nude photos shock Brown denies leaking Rihanna pics

A sex tape allegedly featuring pop singer Rihanna is almost certainly a fake, after it was revealed it was a doctored clip starring a well known porn actress.

Internet reports suggested the clip, a 13-second film modified to look like a night vision video similar to Paris Hilton's infamous sex tape, could spell the end of Rihanna's career.

But news website Livenews.com.au reported it was not Rihanna in the clip, but lookalike porn star Lavish Styles.

It said the hoax, which promised to release more footage on June 22, was engineered to drive internet traffic to the website of a new music act.

While the sex tape is a hoax, raunchy photos of Rihanna posted online last month are thought to be real.

The series of photos allegedly showed Rihanna topless in a bathroom mirror. One is thought to show ex-boyfriend Chris Brown wearing a set of pink underwear over his head.

Rihanna will testify against Brown later this month over his alleged bashing of her several months ago.







There's A Rihanna Sex Tape! Or Something Resembling One! Possibly!


Rihanna, Rihanna sex tape, Chris Brown, Rihanna/ Chris Brown sex tape, Rihanna nakedThis Father's Day, why not give your dad the greatest gift of all? By which we clearly mean a Rihanna sex tape.

A clip of something claiming to be a Rihanna sex tape has just found its way onto the internet, with the promise that more will be available to view from Monday. Unless the whole thing's a fake. Which it might be.

Anyway, our point is that nothing says 'I love you dad' more than a sexually graphic video potentially starring a naked pop star who, quite soon after filming, will be beaten within an inch of her life.

Things have been a little bit quiet on the old celebrity sex tape front for a while, haven't they? There's a theory that this down to celebrities realising that the best way to protect themselves from online sex tape leaks is to not make sex tapes in the first place, but we disagree. We believe that the celebrity sex tape industry has dried up because there isn't a celebrity on the face of the Earth who could come close to matching the horrific majesty of the Gene Simmons sex tape.

However, it looks like one plucky challenger might have taken the bait in the shape of Rihanna. Although we've seen much, much more of Rihanna that we've ever wanted to this year - those naked Rihanna photos showed us what her breasts look like, while her post-beating police report photo showed us what Rihanna's face looks like with some of the skin torn off - it looks like Rihanna isn't done showing us bits of herself yet.

That's right - the much-rumoured Chris Brown/ Rihanna sex tape looks like it's finally here. And, if it isn't, then at least a very short video of a woman who looks a tiny bit like Rihanna if you squint a bit is finally here. And isn't that really the same thing, deep down? Here's what Hollyscoop has to say on the matter:

    The clip below is only a preview, but the caption says that more of the video will be released on June 22nd, which happens to be the same day as Rihanna and Chris Brown's court hearing. Coincidence?

Now, true, the leaked Rihanna sex tape could be available in full on the day of Rihanna and Chris Brown's court hearing because somebody wants to damage the credibility of Rihanna's testimony. But the clip also directs us towards a website which, rather than being anything remotely porny, is actually a MySpace Page featuring possibly the worst music we've ever heard in our entire lives, from a man who happens to have an album out on the same day. Coincidence?

And also, while the woman in the sex tape clip does look a little bit like Rihanna, she doesn't appear to have any of Rihanna's tattoos. And, rather than pulling one of the stylishly aloof faces that we've come to expect from Rihanna, the look of the woman in the leaked clip seems to be saying "Can we hurry this along, please? I've got to fit in a FFM piss-orgy AND a private bukkake do by teatime. Also, who should I invoice for this?".

On the other hand the clip's quite short, which suggests that it's the only part of the Rihanna sex tape where you can't see Chris Brown lumbering up against her like some sort of disgusting horny walrus, which would clearly be quite off-putting to potential viewers.

So maybe the Rihanna sex tape is real, but we won't count our chickens just yet. Still, at least we've always got good old Gene Simmons to keep us ticking over in the meantime, eh?







RIHANNA Singer in alleged sex tape claims 
Rihanna has been rocked by claims that there is a 13 second excerpt from a sex tape in which she is allegedly involved that is circulating the internet. The 'Umbrella' singer, whose on/off boyfriend Chris Brown is set to be appear in court after allegedly assaulting her, supposedly features in the video which is shot entirely in night vision, much like the infamous 'One Night in Paris' video with Paris Hilton. According to 'Metro', the film was shot a few years ago, and it is not known if Chris Brown was involved. The person responsible for posting the video says more will be released on June 22. The singer's agent has not responded to the claims.






A Rihanna and Chris Brown sex tape? Whether an alleged explicit video of the troubled couple is real

A Rihanna and Chris Brown sex tape?

Rihanna: Featured in the video?

"We've been hearing the Rihanna/Chris Brown sex tape rumors for months," said Ani Esmailian in Hollyscoop, "and it looks like the alleged tape may exist after all!" A preview of the video, featuring a woman that appears to be Rihanna in "compromising positions," was leaked online Monday, and a caption on the clip says that the full video will be released on June 22nd.

Which also happens to be "the same day Chris Brown is due to appear in court" for his alleged beating of Rihanna, said Sarah Harrison in Your Tango. "Coincidence? Perhaps. But it's looking an awful lot like Chris Brown is up to something." And Brown was also recently spotted at an Orlando Magic game with Rihanna look-alike Teyana Taylor—could she be the sex tape star?

Actually, a lot of people think "the video is from a tape recorded by porn star Lavish Styles," said Singersroom.com, "who bears a striking resemblance to Rihanna." But then again, just weeks ago nude photos—allegedly of Rihanna, and rumored to have been snapped by Chris Brown—were leaked online, so who knows what's really going on.






Rihanna's Sex Tape False, Features Porn Star Lavish Styles!


Rihanna's sex tape is actually a fake, according to reports. The tape which leaked online last Monday actually features a famous porn star called Lavish Styles who is well known for her similarity in appearance to Rihanna.

NEWS: Rihanna Sex Tape Leaked!

The 13 second movie features a night vision effect similar to Paris Hilton's infamous "One Night in Paris" sex-tape.

VIDEO: Rihanna in her undies - 'Hate That I Love You'

Reports are coming out now that the movie not only does NOT feature Rihanna, but it was simply a vehicle to promote the music of a myspace music artist.

But while the video is now believed to be a hoax, the raunchy photos of Rihanna leaked last month are thought to be her.

Rihanna will testify against her ex-boyfriend Chis Brown later this month over the alleged assault incident that occurred several months ago.








Rihanna to pose for Playboy (but we've already seen her naked)

Singer /paparazzi-favorite Rihanna was spotted leaving the Playboy building in New York City yesterday. The "Umbrella" star was all smiles as fans snapped pictures of her walking to her hotel.

Could the Barbadian beauty actually be gearing up to pose for the historical men's magazine?

If the question were asked last year, the odds of Rihanna, 21, taking off her clothes for Hugh Hefner would be slim to none.

The "Life Your Life" told MTV in 2008:

"I am only 20 so my mother would kill me if I posed nude! When I did that metallic body paint stuff for my [Umbrella] video, I didn't do it to show my body. I didn't do it for people to like me. I did it because it was a cool visual, unexpected, and it looked hot."

Clearly things have changed in 2009. While the "Good Girl Gone Bad" star posed for personal nude photos, as previously reported, fans got a candid glimpse of Rihanna's naked body when the pictures made their way online.

Also in the flicks was a young man resembling Rihanna's then-boyfriend Chris Brown (with women's panties on his head). Brown's camp denied releasing the photos.

So for now, time will tell if Rihanna decides to stripe for Playboy. Bulgari jewelers and several real estate offices are also housed in the same New York building. Maybe she was just shopping as usual?







Rihanna the Playboy bunny?

People are wondering what Rihanna was up to this weekend after she was seen leaving a certain building.
 
This weekend, the singer was spotted coming out of a skyscraper that houses the New York office of Playboy magazine.
 
After the hasty exit, she hit up her hotel room.  There's no word on what she was in town for.
 
Guys may not want to get too happy just yet. TheYBF.com reports that the building she left is also home to Bulgari Jewelers and a realty office, so she may have been doing a little shopping.





Olivia Munn, 'Playboy' cover girl


Oliviamunnplayboycoverx-blog200 Update: Here's a look at the July-August issue of Playboy with Attack of the Show co-host Olivia Munn on the cover. Playboy has 15 additional free photos of Munn at www.playboy.com/oliviamunn (you have to agree to accept emails from the magazine).

Sure Olivia Munn wanted to be on the cover of Playboy. But the magazine also wanted her to be nude inside the upcoming July/August issue, says the co-host of G4's Attack of the Show.

"It was an immediate 'No'," she says. "Unless you are like 40 and you have to prove something I don't think it's necessary for me to be naked. I just thought it would be a total sellout on my part. But it became like my favorite thing to tell everybody that I got the offer."

Two weeks after originally popping the question, the magazine called back. "My publicist said, 'They want you to do it non-nude and it would be their first two-month issue."

Munn agreed but still had to undergo what she describes as a stressful photo shoot in which a stylist constantly tried to get her to wear outfits that barely classified as clothing. "It was probably the most tense shoot I've ever been on," she says. "I had this idea of (a shoot that was) fun, flirty, sexy and very summery."

The stylist brought out black leather, platinum and spandex offerings and a "one-piece bathing suit, all fishnet, and that basically exposed everything," she says. "It was like a TV movie."

In the end, the Playboy cover, on newsstands Friday, shows her in a bikini. "I am happy with the cover," says Munn, who appeared as a "Babe of the Month" two years ago. "I'm in a red bikini with lots of makeup and I'm in a pool. I've done it before but now it's in Playboy."

Inside the new issue, she also has an image where she is topless, but has hair draped to cover her chest. "I was really excited to get the cover. I wouldn't do Playboy nude but I don't think there's anything wrong with the girls inside of it," she says. "I'm very proud of doing it. Part of doing it is experience. But I walked away from it going, uhhh, this kinda blows a little bit."

Viewers will get to see more of Olivia in an awkward situation next month when Attack of the Show celebrates its 1,000th episode with a two-hour special on July 9.  "It isn't my thousandth episode," says Munn, who joined the tech news/entertainment show three years ago, just over a year into its run. "I am very proud that I have been part of the later years and …what we have created. There is no other show like it out there that is an afternoon show that is 100% live and is just people hanging out."

One of the highlights during the special will be a replay of Munn's audition for the show. "I am wearing a wifebeater (T-shirt) and no bra. I guess during that time was my hippie stage," she says. "And the moment before we went on I said to myself, 'Just be yourself.' … Whatever it was (co-host) Kevin (Pereira) and I had this chemistry."

Munn has some other career highlights ahead of her. She has a part in the upcoming films Iron Man 2 and Date Night with Tina Fey and Steve Carell. "All my scenes (in Iron Man 2) are with Robert Downey and one other actor. I don't know how much I can say," she says. "We were (improvising) nd it came to me (to say a line) … (Later) Robert said, 'Can we just stop a second and give Olivia a round of applause. She is rocking it. That made me feel good."

Mystery announcement from 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' stars the Gosselins: Are they getting a divorce?


Jon and Kate Gosselin of TLC's 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' during happier times.


Jon and Kate Gosselin say they've got an announcement to make on Monday's episode of "Jon & Kate Plus 8."

No one at TLC is talking, but according to Radaronline.com, the couple will say they're getting a divorce.

The Gosselins, in a cryptic promo for Monday's special hour-long show, suggest there's something big ahead.

"Recently, we've made some life-changing decisions," Kate says in a promo, available at TLC.com, "ones that will affect every member of our family, ones that we hope will bring each of us some peace."

TLC's promo includes graphics that read "A family in turmoil" and "Where do they go from here?"

If Radar is right - the Web site pegs July 15 as the day of the filing - the announcement should come as no surprise, given that recent celebrity magazine reports have the parents of eight already living apart.




Kate Gosselin seen spanking her child

Under pressure: Paparazzi reportedly caught "Jon and Kate Plus 8" mom Kate Gosselin on camera spanking her 5-year-old daughter, Leah. (Getty Images file photo)

SAN FRANCISCO — Is Kate Gosselin cracking under pressure? The embattled "Jon and Kate Plus 8" mom shocked fans when she was caught by paparazzi cameras apparently spanking daughter Leah, 5.

When the sextuplet wouldn't stop blowing a whistle while Kate was on the phone, the reality-star mom "seemed to lose her temper," a witness told In Touch magazine, and fumed, "Did you not hear me?" before storming over to swat the tot's behind.

"The girl was screaming and crying," adds the onlooker (who we're guessing is a photographer). "Kate just pushed her away and walked off with her coffee."

Kate defended herself to Life&Style magazine, declaring, "Whether the paparazzi are there or not, I am a mother first. I love my children and when they misbehave, I discipline them as I deem appropriate for the situation."

OK, but to those opposed to corporal punishment, whether or not paparazzi are present is not really the point.





Britney Spears: Engaged?

Britney Spears already has two failed marriages behind her. Is she planning to make the third time the charm? According to Star magazine, her agent-turned-boyfriend Jason Trawick has popped the question.

"He didn't exactly get down on one knee, but Brit didn't care," a source relayed. "She said yes, and they opened a bottle of Champagne to celebrate. Jason held Britney for a long time and kissed her cheeks."

Unsurprisingly, a source told Us magazine the talk that Jason proposed is "absolutely not true," and "Britney is not engaged." A People magazine source (perhaps the same person?) seconded the denial.

We can't help but feel relieved. When it comes to BritBrit, weddings are usually a sign of trouble.





Sandra Bullock Loves A Naked Ryan Reynolds


Sandra Bullock gave a great interview to the new issue of Parade Magazine to promote her new film with Ryan Reynolds called The Proposal.

She talks about her first ever nude scene, being around hunky Ryan, and the ever-so-loveable Betty White!
Source: Parade On the naked scene: "The nudity was appropriate for the film. I had to be buck-naked. The big thing was that it was funny. And the only way it could be funny was if you saw my whole body. Ann Fletcher, the director, was amazing in how she choreographed it because we knew we couldn't show anything too explicit. I had a little bit more area to cover than Ryan did, so it was a little trickier for me. But I can talk about Ryan's penis if you want. I mean if I looked like him, I'd be naked all the time."

What you won't see on the big screen. "You have things covering up your essential parts but they get unstuck. And, oddly enough, we didn't care because we were so tired. Ann was like, 'Sandra, your vagina is hanging out. Cover it up.' I'm like, 'Oh, sorry, sorry.' And the crew would be like, 'Jeez, her nipple is showing.' They weren't titillated, they were unhappy because they knew we had to retake the shot. They're like, 'We want to go to lunch. Cover the nip.' So that's pretty much how the day went."

On Getting felt up by Betty White: "When you put it that way, I go, 'God, we shot a soft porn.' Let me just say, Betty White feeling me up was the best second base I've ever had. She was tender yet firm, found them instantly, which is not easy. She was gentle and loving. And I felt satisfied afterwards."





Miley Cyrus close to a million Twitter followers


  Miley Cyrus with one of her best friends. (twitipic Photo)

As of this morning, some 926,684 are following what Miley Cyrus has to write on Twitter.

The number is growing rapidly. The last time I looked, it was somewhere around 750,000.

So, what's so great about following what Miley has to think?

She's entertaining. Miley talks about her movies, concerts and other projects; but also uses Twitter to allow folks a glimpse of her soul.

Miley writes about the music she is listening to, quotes lyrics that are meaningful to her life and – once in a while – throws a hissy. I've never seen her lose her temper unjustifiably.

Among the most entertaining aspects of her Twitter account is her photo sharing. She takes pictures or has pictures taken of who and what mean most to her. She seems down-to-earth and not too worried about looking a little goofy at times.

I recommend it. There are many fake Mileys on Twitter. The only official Miley account is located here.

If you don't have a Twitter account, don't sweat it. It's free and I believe you'll have fun with it.

Lindsay Lohan Uses Twitter to Send Nude Photo

Pop tart Lindsay Lohan sometimes claims she hates the paparazzi. But sometimes she just loves the attention.

Why else would she choose to publish a naked photo taken by herself on the microblogging platform Twitter? Was she jealous of all the followers Ashton Kutchter has?

Thanks to Lohan, all the new media pundits can claim another watershed moment for their beloved Twitter, which supposedly delayed site maintenance so that it could be used by Iranian protesters. Or maybe all this proves is that we have become increasingly narcissistic as a society.

Either way, Lohan is not looking good.

Product summary

The good: The iPhone 3G S finally adds common cell phone features like multimedia messaging, video recording, and voice dialing. It runs faster; its promised battery life is longer; and the multimedia quality continues to shine.

The bad: The iPhone 3G S' call quality shows no improvements and the 3G signal reception remains uneven. We still don't get Flash Lite, USB transfer and storage, or multitasking.

The bottom line: The iPhone 3G S doesn't make the same grand leap that the iPhone 3G made from the first-generation model, but the latest Apple handset is still a compelling upgrade for some users. The iPhone 3G S is faster and we appreciate the new features and extended battery life, but call quality and 3G reception still need improvement.





Facebook downs MySpace in U.S. market

Given the continuing user popularity attributed to Facebook, it will likely surprise no one to learn that the social networking titan has now overthrown main market rival MySpace in the United States.

According to monthly U.S. usage figures provided by the number crunchers at comScore, Facebook pulled in 70.28 million users during the month of May, edging out News Corp-owned MySpace and its 70.26 million visitors.

In terms of related growth and shrinkage connected to May's networking habits, Facebook's 70.28 million users ranks as almost 50 percent more than it managed during the same period in 2008, while MySpace's 70.26 million marks a five percent year-on-year loss.

Registering massive growth of more than 2,700 percent in May, micro-blogging service Twitter emerged as the third most popular community site in the U.S. thanks to the attention of 17.6 million users.

Facebook's overhauling of MySpace in the United States was perhaps to be expected considering that the network is already the world's leading online social community.

The most current worldwide monthly figures (April 2009) offered up by comScore showed Facebook leading the market with 307.1 million users, while MySpace was found to be lagging some way behind in second place with 126.9 million.

In related news, a new individual user name URL feature offered by Facebook has resulted in 5.75 million account holders registering for a free personalised Internet address within the opening 48 hours of availability.





New Google Phone Expected Next Week from T-Mobile


androidWhat's smaller than the iPhone and thinner than the G1? It's T-Mobile's second Android-powered phone: myTouch 3G. Or at least that's the rumor, anyway. Next week, T-Mobile is expected to announce a summer launch date for another Android-powered phone from HTC called the myTouch 3G, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The myTouch 3G will have a touchscreen but no physical keyboard, as well as a G1-styled trackball and navigation buttons. But that's where the similarities end; overall, the new Android phone will reportedly resemble the HTC Magic, currently available in thehtc magic android U.K. In fact, the myTouch 3G could simply be a renamed version of the Magic. Earlier this month, PC World's Daniel Ionescu posited this theory after all attendees of Google's I/O conference received an HTC Magic handset to take home and try out. That free giveaway seemed very generous at the time, but it makes more sense from a marketing viewpoint if the Magic is about to be released in the U.S.

The Journal says the myTouch will have a glossy look with a rounded back that is smaller than the iPhone but thinner than the original Android phone to hit the U.S -- the G1. As for new features, the myTouch 3G could come with voice-activated search and video capability.

This is the third time we've heard about a new Android phone from HTC in the coming months. Just a few weeks ago, rumors were circulating about the HTC Hero launching on June 24, with a big bash planned for London. Based on the rumors, however, the Hero and the myTouch don't sound like the same phone. The Hero is rumored to be coming to AT&T and would also be a touchscreen-only device. A second Hero model may also be in the works, possibly renamed the Lancaster or Memphis, that would come with a keyboard. The Hero is supposed to use HTC's TouchFlo 3D user interface, but there's no word on whether the myTouch would use TouchFlo as well. We've also seen reports about a refreshed G1 coming to T-Mobile called the G2, which could be the same phone as the myTouch 3G.

Google has been saying for some time to expect numerous Android models to hit the U.S. market. The Journal said the search giant is looking forward to seeing around 18 different models this year. Despite these announcements and predictions, so far only the G1 has appeared in the U.S.

But here are some other signs that a new Android model could be hitting store shelves soon. The myTouch 3G is rumored to have a $179.99 price tag with a two-year contract. That's the same price as the G1 -- or at least it was. T-Mobile recently slashed the price of the G1 by $30 to $149.99. Is this a sign that a new Google phone is about to hit the market? I guess we'll have to wait until next week to find out.







Microsoft takes hatchet to YouTube clone

Admitting Failure 2.0

By Cade Metz in San Francisco • Get more from this author

Posted in Music and Media, 17th June 2009 17:44 GMT

Free whitepaper – The power of collaboration within unified communications

Microsoft plans to "significantly scale back" its Soapbox service, the would-be YouTube challenger it launched in 2006. Whatever that means.

Speaking with Cnet, Microsoft vice president Erik Jorgensen said that Soapbox's YouTube-like user-generated video setup is just too expensive considering the state of the economy. But he didn't exactly say how Microsoft plans to cut the service's costs.

We've asked Microsoft to explain Jorgensen's statements, and all it gave was more hemming and hawing. "We don't have anything specific to announce about Soapbox at this time," reads a statement from the company. "We are currently evaluating what the Soapbox brand means to MSN and how it relates to our content strategy.

"Online video is a key part of the MSN experience. Today, MSN Video has 35 million unique users each month, who watch 250 million video streams each month. We remain committed to delivering amazing experiences for consumers while at the same time keeping a keen eye on our business objectives during this tough economic climate."

Redmond launched Soapbox in September 2006, days before Google announced its $1.65bn purchase of the wildly-popular YouTube. Then, just six months later, Microsoft barred new users from the service in order to install anti-piracy filters. After another two months, it reopened, but naturally, it never came close to matching the popularity of its rival - which Google is still struggling to actually make money from.

As we predicted back in the fall, the melting economy has forced Microsoft to re-evaluate attempts to transform itself into some sort of "Web 2.0" outfit, and Soapbox is an obvious place to trim some of the shameless start-up mimicking.

According to CNet, Microsoft will reinvent Soapbox as a place where "bloggers and citizen journalists can post videos relevant to areas in which MSN focuses, categories like entertainment, lifestyle, and finance." So Redmond will pick and choose which videos get posted and which don't. Or maybe not.

First, Jorgensen says that a user-generated free-for-all is too expensive. Then he says he's not so sure. "We haven't decided whether you just continue to support it or whether it is too expensive and out of our focus to do," said Jorgenen, the same man who recently murdered Microsoft Money.

Presumably, Soapbox's YouTube mimicking days are over. But Microsoft can't quite bring itself to say the words. ®

Olivia Wilde Goes Topless for Maxim     

Showing why she was picked as No. 2 on Maxim's Hot 100 list, Olivia Wilde struck a few sexy poses for the upcoming issue of the popular men's magazine.

Ready to promote her new movie, "Year One," Olivia told Maxim, "I'm the Princess of Sodom [in the movie], which is a great thing to tell Mom and Dad. 'Who are you playing this time, sweetie?' 'I'm the Princess of Sodom!' My poor parents."

Continuing on, Miss Wilde adds, "It's kind of hilarious, because my husband and I are so not concerned with it. All it means to us is having an incredible family history. But it's still funny. Everyone on set was like, 'Princess of Italy, Princess of Sodom.'"

Talking about researching for the role, the "House" actress explains, "In my family religion was reserved for weddings and funerals, so once I got the role I had to read up on my Cain and Abel. Plus, I had to know about Sodom, so I did a lot of research on sodomy. I'll do anything for my craft."










Olivia Wilde Topless: Maxim-um Hotness
Filed under: Olivia Wilde

Last month, when Olivia Wilde was crowned Earth's most beautiful woman by Maxim, we were a little bit skeptical of the men's magazine's decision-making.

After all, have you seen Megan Fox pictures? Marisa Miller photos? Bar Refaeli pics? Adriana Lima images? Is anyone doing research over there at Maxim?

Despite Olivia Wilde's undisputed good looks, this seemed a dubious title given the competition. Seemed. As in past tense. Maxim is changing our minds.

Here's the cover photo of their #1 stunner ...

Olivia Wilde Maxim Cover

Beautiful as this is, it barely scratches the surface of the Wilde thing.

Get ready for so many pictures of Olivia Wilde topless and barely clothed, you won't even know what to do with yourself. Okay, maybe you will. It will involve clicking to enlarge the images below, followed by prying your jaw off the floor.

Maxim, we take back what we said. Against even the hottest of the hot, the House star holds her own (as male fans everywhere do the same with theirs) ...









Porn star Sasha Grey gets a mainstream role in The Girlfriend Experience
PORN QUEEN

Sasha Grey has the lead in Steven Soderbergh's latest film.
Hoping to cash in on her notoriety, Steven Soderbergh casts her in 'The Girlfriend Experience.'

Oscar-winning writer-director Steven Soderbergh isn't coy about his motive for casting Sasha Grey in his low-budget indie drama "The Girlfriend Experience." In a movie entirely populated by nonprofessional actors, who better to portray a $2,000-an-hour Manhattan call-girl than one of the most prolific and in-demand adult film stars working the so-called San Pornando Valley? FOR THE RECORD:
Sasha Grey: An article in Thursday's Calendar section about adult film performer Sasha Grey said that "The Girlfriend Experience," the new indie drama in which she appears, opens today. The movie reaches theaters today but it became available on cable television April 30. —



    * EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Sasha Grey, porn superstar, as you've never seen her before
      STORY:
      EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Sasha Grey, porn superstar, as you've never seen her before

      Porn stars in the mainstream

Still, he cops to a certain degree of exploitation. Soderbergh gave Grey the lead role in the film (which opens Friday) fully intending to milk her X-rated fame for all it is worth. "I was very much counting on the fact that the interest in her would be greater than the interest in the movie," Soderbergh said. "We would be drafting off her notoriety rather than vice versa. I needed her. That's no different than getting Brad Pitt to be in your movie, albeit in a different context."

In that regard, it probably helps that Grey, 21, can be considered a porn star only by the same reductive logic that would characterize Kobe Bryant as merely a "basketball player." The actress -- real name Marina Ann Hantzis -- is professionally distinguished by her take-no-prisoners attitude toward the hardest of hard-core sex scenes and consensual degradation. Aggressively staking a claim for herself in the industry from almost the moment she turned 18, Grey's porn oeuvre extends to more than 150 films -- "Sasha Grey's Anatomy," "House of Sex & Domination" and "Teenage Whores" (parts 2 and 3) being among the few titles printable in a family newspaper. For her ambitiousness, she took home the Adult Video News Awards' female performer of the year in 2008, becoming the youngest person to win.

Moreover, Grey is establishing herself as a burgeoning multimedia mogul. She calls herself a "performance artist," is filming a documentary, writing a graphic novel and a "sex philosophy" book and recently launched her own production company with the twin goals of changing the look of pornography and empowering women.

"Part of the reason I got into this business was to change it," Grey said. "I can take my fantasies and ideas and deliver those to an audience. It's all an extension of who I am."

Dan Miller, editor in chief of AVN magazine, explained what separates Grey from her industry's rank and file. "She brings it in her sex scenes," he said. "She means business. Sasha's been able to showcase a way of going about it, a fearlessness, that has resonated with adult critics and made producers take notice. She's in the top 10 in-demand female performers."

Over lunch in a Hollywood restaurant, picking at a salad she variously described as tasting "like ammonia" and later, wasabi, Grey made working with Soderbergh -- the force behind the blockbuster "Ocean's" franchise as well as more personal projects starring non-pro actors such as "Bubble" and the HBO series "K Street" -- seem like no biggie. Never mind that, outside of adult films, she had never professionally acted (despite having studied theater from age 12 to 18). And that working from a bare-bones plot "outline," she was responsible for improvising her own dialogue.

"Steven wanted a natural quality and for things to be spontaneous," Grey said. "So it was about trying to find a way to bring my training into the film and also leaving room for this open-ended, never-ending surprise that came into each scene."

Grey portrays Chelsea, a high-class escort whose upscale clients enlist her for more than just sexual encounters. She provides them a "GfE" -- the titular "girlfriend experience" -- of simulated romance and faux emotional intimacy. While operating in a high-gloss world of posh hotels, pricey restaurants and designer clothing, the men in her life -- customers, potential pimps, her boyfriend, a nosy journalist and a sleazy escort review blogger known as "the Erotic Connoisseur" -- attempt to control Chelsea as she plies her trade against the real-life backdrop of last fall's stock market crash and presidential election.

As Soderbergh sees it, Grey's day job and ambitiousness lent her portrayal the kind of verisimilitude you can't learn at drama school. He first hatched the idea to hire her for the film after reading a 2006 Los Angeles magazine profile of Grey's first few months in the adult movie business, "The Teenager & the Porn Star."

"I needed somebody who in a sexual situation could be in control and in command," he said. "Sasha has a macro vision of how she is going to conduct herself. She has a five-year plan. That was very similar to the escorts we interviewed before we made the film -- you hear a lot of GfE's talk like that. But it's very unusual in the porn world."

The actress' literary agent, Marc Gerald, is working with Grey on a coffee-table book featuring photos she took on porn sets over the last few years; it will function as a kind of "manifesto" for her singular outlook. The as-yet-untitled book from Vice/MTV Books has a tentative publication date of early next year.He pointed out that the actress operates "to the extreme" in both her business and creative pursuits. "She has an intellectual curiosity you can't force or manufacture," Gerald said.

For her part, Grey -- a petite Sacramento native who speaks with a kind of flat affect and still possesses the physique of a teenage girl -- seemed more interested in talking about her new production company Grey Art than "The Girlfriend Experience." The plan going forward is for her to act as her own manager, work exclusively for herself (rather than one of the big agencies that represent most porn performers) and even direct her own movies.

"All women have the right to be feminist whether you're pro-porn or anti-porn," she said. "But I think it's definitely about continuing to put the control in women's hands. And sending a positive message to our society that every girl in porn is not abused and cracked out."

Grey continued: "I have this brand, I have my name. And I'm going to do what I want because people will buy it. People will enjoy it. So don't tell me I have to follow this formula and sit inside the box. Because I don't."





Victoria Beckham has breast reduction from a size 34DD to a 34B

Victoria Beckham has reportedly had a third breast operation.
According to OK magazine, the former Spice Girl has allegedly had implants taken out of her chest, reducing her bust from a size 34DD to a 34B.

It is thought the move is part of a re-style for Victoria who wants to change her image from that of a footballer's wife to a fashion designer.

The mum-of three, who is married to AC Milan star David Beckham, is believed to have had her first bust-boosting operation in 1999 to increase her chest from a natural 34A to a 34D.

She is then reported to have enlarged her breasts further two years later to a 34DD.

But the 35-year-old star has never publicly admitted to having the operations.

Victoria is believed to be resting with her family on the French Riviera for two weeks before returning to Los Angeles where she lives with her and David's children Brooklyn, 10, Cruz, four

Heidi Montag got advice for her Playboy spread from former cover girl herself, Kim Kardashian.


If you like the pictures of Heidi Montag in the September issue of Playboy, you might send a thank-you Tweet to Kim Kardashian.

Kardashian, who posed for the magazine herself in 2007, tells MTV News that she helped Montag decide to do the spread.

"Actually, I was in Mexico and I got a call from Heidi saying, 'Call me right now,'" Kardashian told MTV News. "So I called her and she had said to me, 'What do you think? What's your opinion on if I were to do Playboy?' "

Kardashian told her to "go for it."

"I think that now's the time," she said. "I think it's a very classy magazine. It's artsy. I talked her through the whole process and helped her make up her mind.

"I'm excited to see what the pictures will turn out to be."








Lindsay Lohan Uses Twitter to Send Nude Photo

Pop tart Lindsay Lohan sometimes claims she hates the paparazzi. But sometimes she just loves the attention.

Why else would she choose to publish a naked photo taken by herself on the microblogging platform Twitter? Was she jealous of all the followers Ashton Kutchter has?

Thanks to Lohan, all the new media pundits can claim another watershed moment for their beloved Twitter, which supposedly delayed site maintenance so that it could be used by Iranian protesters. Or maybe all this proves is that we have become increasingly narcissistic as a society.

Either way, Lohan is not looking good.









Lindsay Lohan, Dumped Again, Posts Nude Photo (SEE IT)

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly split from Samantha Ronson – again – if they ever were really back together, which may explain more erratic behavior from the "Mean Girls" actress, like posting a semi-nude photo of herself on Twitter.

Earlier this month, Lindsay was spotted wearing an engagement ring and appeared to be reunited with her lesbian lover, after a high-profile break-up. But Ronson reportedly dumped her again by text message after the pair had a heated argument about Sam's friend Nicole Richie on Monday night (June 15).

"Nicole refuses even to be in the same room as Lindsay and Lindsay was furious when Sam was invited to a party Nicole held for a mutual friend and she wasn't," a source told website E! Online. "Sam went to the party and it really upset Lindsay."

At the bash, Sam enjoyed a meal with pregnant Nicole and reportedly sent a message to Lindsay telling her their relationship was over and to stop contacting her.

Friends of the couple said Lindsay was trying hard to keep Sam, the sister of UK music producer Mark Ronson, happy by avoiding fighting and giving Sam more space. But that all appears to have gone out the window, along with LiLo's blouse in her newly posted photo.

Lohan posted the semi-nude photo of herself topless with long, blonde extensions strategically covering her chest. Lohan, who is Fornarina's summer 2009 spokeswoman, took the self-portrait on herBlackberry during a shoot for the Italian clothing label in January.

"OLD PHOTOS," she tweeted. "I'm THAT bored."

Lohan has been questioned in an investigation for the disappearance of $400,000 worth of Dior jewelry that went missing from a magazine photoshoot in London. But police have said so far that no evidence links her with the disappearance.








Jennifer Aniston, Heidi Klum or Bruno: Who is the hottest nude GQ model?


Talk about baring it all!

Sacha Baron Cohen's gay Austrian alter-ego, Bruno, is the latest famous face to strip down for the cover of GQ magazine.

The fictional fashion journalist takes a barely-there cue from past cover models Jennifer Aniston and Heidi Klum.

But where Aniston barely covers up with a necktie and Klum flirtatiously poses on a pedestal, Bruno leaves little to the imagination.

In the magazine's July comedy issue, Bruno opens up about his sought-after hairstyle.

"Ich vouldn't bother getting a Zac Efron hairstyle right now, cos ich am about to change mine and he's certain to copy me again," he says.

Bruno also maintains his good looks with a good night's sleep.

"In reality, ich sleep in a seaweed body wrap under a Zac Posen Navy-Cut Nightshirt," says the fashion enthusiast. "In mein dreams, ich sleep naked in a giant reed basket drifting slowly down ze Nile, cradled in ze arms of Daniel Radcliffe."










Kate Gosselin spanks her daughter Leah; defends her actions

The spank heard around the world

Don't get on Kate Gosselin's bad side.

Once again, the matriarch of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" has found herself at the center of the media limelight, this time for spanking one of her eight children.

Mama Gosselin allegedly grabbed her daughter, Leah, by the arm and smacked her rear end before walking away from the crying child.

Photos released by In Touch Weekly show Gosselin holding her squirming child by the arm, and the next image of Leah crying and holding her rear. The photos do not actually reveal Gosselin's hand touching her daughter.

According to the magazine, Leah had been asked to stop blowing a whistle and was not listening.

"The girl was screaming and crying. Kate just pushed her away and walked off with her coffee," a witness told In Touch. "Her older sisters were trying to make Leah feel better."

In response to the recent controversy, Gosselin is defending her actions.

"Whether the paparazzi are there or not, I am a mother first," Gosselin told Life & Style Weekly. "I love my children and when they misbehave, I discipline them as I deem appropriate for the situation."

The Gosselin clan has long been under a watchful camera lens thanks to their TLC reality show, but the family has recently received extra public scrutiny due to an allegedly crumbling marriage and accusations of extramarital affairs.

The season 5 premiere of their reality show pulled in a record 9.8 million viewers, but has since seen a decline in ratings.

Lohan on her attack on Twitter
Lindsay Lohan has already broken her silence on Twitter over reports that she has been dumped again by girlfriend Samantha Ronson.

Fired up Lilo launched a thinly veiled attack on Ronson's Twitter page today, following reports Nicole Richie had urged the DJ to dump Lohan again.

In a first message, the actress, 22, wrote: 'I can't sleep' and 'it's your fault!'

Shortly after a second ranting came through saying: 'I love being alone. Feels safe coz I can only trust myself...ya, sad'

A third followed: 'Why do people cheat? When love is always standing right in front of their face (s) ?? Sr?'

Her latest internet spew comes amid reports Ronson decided to dump Lohan again after having dinner with Richie who apparently can't stand Lohan.





Lindsay Lohan posts topless photo of herself on Twitter

Categories: News, Web/Tech

Tabloid mainstay Lindsay Lohan posted a topless photo of herself on Twitter Monday. The image was from backstage at a photo shoot she did with Italian clothing designer Fornarina in January, the New York Daily News reports. "OLD PHOTOS," she tweeted. "I'm THAT bored." The photos feature Lohan topless, in jeans, with blonde hair extensions covering most of her breasts.





Lindsay Lohan topless over Twitter (NSFW)

In what she calls as the result of boredom, Lindsay Lohan takes a topless picture of herself, and posts it to her Twitter profile for all her followers to see.

"OLD PHOTOS. I'm THAT bored," Lohan reportedly wrote together with the said Twitter post.

Lohan is currently being investigated regarding a US$400,000 piece of diamond jewelry reported missing after her photoshoot with Elle Magazine UK. Rumors are saying that Lohan snapped the controversial picture of herself as a means to divert attention away from the pending issue at hand.

Elle Magazine, however, has extended their suspicions and disclosed that they do not believe that Lohan was responsible for the theft.

The topless photo was shot at the set of Lohan's Fornarina commercial.





Hanna Montanah star Miley Cyrus offering a BJ Leaked Photos

The photograph that is claimed to show Miley Cyrus offering oral sex (a blow job, or BJ) to an unnamed man has surfaced online.

In a potential Miley Cyrus scandal, there are pictures that we believe to be fake floating around the internet of Miley Cyrus performing oral sex on a man. If this were true, this would blow fans of Miley Cyrus away completely—only it's not.

The origins of the so-called Miley Cyrus BJ leaked photo are not clear, but by all indicationsthe image would appear to be photoshopped.

The original photograph can't be shown because it could possibly constitute child pornography, although notably it doesn't show Miley in any state of undress. The picture above shows a safe/ edited version, with the source images used to create the fake Miley Cyrus BJ shot to the right.

Representatives of Hanna Montanah star, Miley Cyrus, have said the supposed photo is "completely fabricated."







Miley Cyrus sex shock pictures

[miley cyrus sex scandal]

Miley Cyrus has once again been left red faced by a new set of photographs apparently showing Miley Cyrus in a sex act that have circulated around the internet.

Although the sick perverts who have been searching around the internet for the pictures that apparently are showing Miley engaging in a oral sex act, we can announce that these perverts should get themselves sectioned as the pictures are once again a fake, and we would also like to point out to these perverts that Miley is an underage teenager.

Miley Cyrus who seems to be an easy target of Perverted Online porn website owners has had a number of fake pictures published online which have left her fans shocked and hurt at why this is happening to such a talented artist.

A spokesperson for Miley Cyrus says, "The alleged photo of Miley Cyrus circulating the internet is completely fabricated."









Miley Cyrus Goes Out And Gets Pierced

Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus, Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus Nose PiercedKids, eh? It's so hard to watch them grow up. Especially when they're Miley Cyrus. But then again it's always hard to watch her.

Miley Cyrus is starting to assert her independence. Until now, Miley had been doing this perfectly normally, like going out with an adult underwear model and being ludicrously rich enough to financially control her entire family, but now she's crossed the line. How? Miley Cyrus has got her nose pierced.

So now Miley Cyrus is a punk. We're excited to hear her raw, uncompromising new direction on forthcoming single Let's Have A Punky Pyjama Party (Lalalalala).

Deep down, Miley Cyrus has always been a rebel. All the signs were there - the romance with the unsuitably older man, the tendency to strip off for photos at any given opportunity, the fearless mockery of arbitrarily-chosen racial groups, that song of hers that had rock guitars in it because a computer had analysed data from several focus groups in Miley's key demographic and revealed that rock guitars would track well for her in a number of important new markets.

See? Miley Cyrus is bold. Miley Cyrus is single-minded. Miley Cyrus will not sell out - unless of course your definition of selling out involves giving away both your physical likeness and entire childhood to one of the world's biggest entertainment companies and doing everything it orders you to do in exchange for cash, in which case there might be an argument that Miley Cyrus has sold out a little bit.

But in case you wanted some more proof, Miley Cyrus has just had her nose pierced. And it affected her dad Billy Ray Cyrus so strongly that he's actually written a song about it, as he told Larry King:

    "She said, 'Daddy would you take me to get my nose pierced?' I said, 'Did you ask your mamma?' and she said, 'Mamma said I can do it if you would take me.' We went to a little place in Studio City. I felt kind of nervous… You probably heard the song I wrote, Ready, Set, Don't Go. It's about that moment in a daddy's life that you realise your little girl has grown up. It's time for her to make her own decisions."

Miley Cyrus Bj Sex Photos Scandal!


A photo that appears to show Miley Cyrus engaging in a sex act has been dismissed as a fake by her representatives.

The shocking snap has been circulating online, prompting rumours the teen star has been caught up in another photo scandal - a year after she posed virtually nude for celebrated photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Pictures of her in her underwear have also surfaced on the internet, as well as snaps that appeared to show her mocking Asians.

But her rep has acted swiftly, insisting the new photo, which appears to show Cyrus performing oral sex on an unidentified male, is a fake.

The spokesperson says, "The alleged photo of Miley Cyrus circulating the internet is completely fabricated."

Disney was rumoured to be considering a younger replacement for Cyrus, after a series of scandals.  But the entertainment giant clearly has had a change of heart.

Photos circulating the net that appear to be Miley Cyrus engaging in a sexual activity are fake, her rep said in a statement released Tuesday (June 16).

Numerous websites have already debunked the pics, stating they were altered, however, the 16-year-old's rep still issued a comment to back up the claims.

"The alleged photo of Miley Cyrus circulating the internet is completely fabricated," her spokesperson told the Daily News.

    * Is Miley's pierced nose for real?
    * Miley Cyrus and Justin Gaston call it quits
    * Miley laments 'jiggly' thighs ... then apologizes
    * Blast from the past! Miley works Elizabethan chic

Just when we thought Miley Cyrus was starting to steer clear of her "bad girl" image, new photos allegedly showing the pop princess engaged in a sexual activity have hit the Internet.
"The alleged photo of Miley Cyrus circulating the internet is completely fabricated," the singer's rep tells the Daily News.

While Cyrus, 16, has been busy working on her new movie, "The Last Song," in Georgia, fans are left wondering if the "Hannah Montana" star is as innocent as she wants people to believe.

It is unknown whether the images of Cyrus are authentic, but this wouldn't be the first time the teen has been involved in a photo scandal.

In 2008, parents were outraged when the then 15-year-old singer posed semi-topless for the cover of Vanity Fair.

The singer continued to raise eyebrows when her cell phone was hacked and leaked pictures showed Cyrus provocatively posing in bikinis and a wet bathing suit.

As for the teen star's latest photo scandal, several websites have debunked the authenticity of the photos by proving how an original image could have been altered










New Miley Cyrus Pictures: Real or Fake?
People Are Angry Over the Exploitation of the "Hannah Montana" Star
Turns out the Miley Cyrus bj pictures that everyone was looking for do not actually exist. There are pictures of Miley Cyrus seemingly caught in a compromising oral position, but those pictures have been
New Miley Cyrus Pictures: Real or Fake?
 found to be photoshopped. There are also actual pictures of someone who looks a lot like Miley Cyrus having oral sex, but that young woman just happens to resemble the "Hannah Montana" star.

The Miley Cyrus bj pictures that had the internet abuzz only exist as fakes. It was a hoax. Again, those pictures were Photoshopped.

Regardless, people are mad. As in angry. They're pissed, incensed, coming off the rails, livid...

Why? Because they've been hoodwinked? Hopefully, that isn't it.

Miley Cyrus is just 16 years old. Most are angry because the teenager has been exploited.

Someone has gone to a lot of trouble to create an image of the young pop star performing fellatio on some young man. However, as many websites are quick to point out and demonstrate, the image was photoshopped from an old Miley Cyrus photo.

Why would anyone do such a thing?

The answer to that could be anything from someone simply attempting to denigrate the "Hannah Montana" starlet to someone trying to create a viral sensation just for the thrill of it. No matter the reason or intent, the finished product was hurtful and potentially demeaning, not to mention potentially humiliating.

As was the case in the inappropriate "knocked up" joke told by David Letterman about Sarah Palin's daughter, it comes down to perception. David Letterman apologized to the entire Sarah Palin family after, according to him, he had watched a discussion on a news show that spoke of the perception of the joke, something that mattered far more than the intent. If the image of Miley Cyrus performing oral sex was perceived as real and that perception was not rectified by the truth of someone explaining that it was a photoshopped image, an unknowing person could form a negative opinion of the teen star for such behavior, thereby tainting the young star's public image.









Miley Cyrus 'Shown' In Scandalous BJ Photo

Miley Cyrus is involved in another photo scandal.

A new photo has surfaced on the Internet allegedly showing Miley Cyrus engaged in sexual activity. Her representative was quick to debunk the authenticity of the photo.

"The alleged photo of Miley Cyrus circulating the internet is completely fabricated," her rep told the New York Daily News.

Gossip websites have also gone an extra step to prove the photo is a fake and easy to Photoshop by posting the original picture and detailing where it could have been cropped. Lalate news pointed out that the photo's color is distorted and that it's a small size—all techniques to prevent people from seeing where the crop was made.

This is not the first time the pop star has been involved in a photo scandal. Parents were outraged when she shot a semi-topless photo for Vanity Fair magazine and when cell phone pictures of her posing in a bikini surfaced, Daily News reported.

Miley Cyrus BJ "leaked photo" doing the rounds, likely fake


miley-cyrus-bj

The photograph that is claimed to show Miley Cyrus offering oral sex (a blow job, or BJ) to an unnamed man has surfaced online.

The origins of the so-called Miley Cyrus BJ leaked photo are not clear, but by all indicationsthe image would appear to be photoshopped. The image neither shows Miley making physical contact in the picture, and the shot of Miley is identical to a completely different image that doesn't involve a penis.

The original photograph can't be shown because it could possibly constitute child pornography, although notably it doesn't show Miley in any state of undress. The picture above shows a safe/ edited version,  with the source images used to create the fake Miley Cyrus BJ shot to the right.

Miley Cyrus Alleged Oral Sex Photos?

In a potential Miley Cyrus scandal, there are pictures that we believe to be fake floating around the internet of Miley Cyrus performing oral sex on a man. If this were true, this would blow fans of Miley Cyrus away completely—only it's not.

Representatives of the Hannah Montanah star, Miley Cyrus, have said the supposed photo is "completely fabricated."

There are some older photographs that could have easily been altered to create the image that is making its rounds today. For example, when Miley Cyrus was shooting a kissing scene with Liam Hemsworth on the set of the movie "The Last Song in Savannah," she was in a position similar to the one in the alleged BJ photo.

Lindsay Lohan posts topless picture online

Lindsay_lohan_picture02 Lindsay Lohan has posted a topless photograph of herself on Twitter. The star of Mean Girls uploaded the image on to her account earlier this week, under the headline: 'Old Photos. I'm That Bored'.

The image shows her posing for her Blackberry backstage at a fashion shoot for Fornarina with only her blonde hair extensions covering her breasts. Lohan is scheduled to begin filming The Other Side, her first film in two years, later this year.



    


Lindsay Lohan Shares Topless Photo On 'Twitter' she decided to share a topless photo of herself on 'Twitter'


Lindsay Lohan [photosLindsay Lohan photos] didn't have much else to do, so she decided to share a topless photo of herself on 'Twitter'.

"Old photos," wrote the 22-year-old. "I'm THAT bored."

She is thought to have taken the photo in the middle of a Fornarina shoot the actress posed for back in January. She also appears to be much thinner in it, than some of her more recent beach photos.

Lindsay is currently a spokeswoman for the Italian clothing label.

In the photo, Lohan's long, blonde wig covers her topless chest as she poses for her BlackBerry camera.







Eva Mendes Topless, in Lingerie For Calvin Klein
Filed under: Celebrity Fashion, Eva Mendes

A lingerie-clad and then topless Eva Mendes is all over shirtless model Jamie Dornan in a racy new Fall 2009 campaign for Calvin Klein jeans and underwear.

Shot by world-renowned photographer Steven Klein, the ads will appear in billboards as well as in magazines as Jeans ad inserts, four-page ad units and covers of Lucky, Elle, GQ, Vanity Fair, W, Nylon, Details, Interview and InStyle.

They're not as racy as the Eva Mendes nude ads for CK that were banned last year, but still, she and Dornan are gonna be heating up those publications ...

Eva Mendes, Jamie Dornan Calvin Klein Ad

We have no idea who Jamie Dornan is, but we do now. He is one lucky individual for getting Eva Mendes all pressed up against him like that. Jerk.

The woman some say is the world's most desirable certainly makes a compelling case for that honor with these ads, which conveniently for Calvin Klein, may require readers to begin thinking about a new pair of jeans pretty quick.







Fergie Goes Topless in 'Allure,' Talks Sex, Piercings, and Gluttony


Have you been wondering what happened to Fergie's omnipresent eyebrow ring?

It's gone.

"I have a hole in my face—you can see it."

Tha's just one of the kind-of-freaky revelations the Black Eyed Peas singer makes in the July issue of Allure, on stands June 23.

PHOTOS: Fergie goes topless in the new Allure.

Fergie had to ditch the eyebrow bling for her role in the movie musical "Nine," which she stars in with Oscar winner Penelope Cruz, and for which she also gorged to gain 17 pounds.

"We were eating our brains out," she says. "We ordered everything fried and full of fat and salty."

Apparently new husband Josh Duhamel didn't mind. Perhaps because of the collection of dress-up clothes she keeps on-had for intimate moments?

"I've got a big chest of fun little numbers, ones that I would never wear in public," she says. "I like to have fun with my costume onstage; why wouldn't I in the bedroom?"

Indeed.






Megan Fox is Topless and Single

Megan Fox is kind of topless on the internet...and not doing anything about it. Fox stars in the upcoming film "Jennifer's Body," and stills of the film have somehow made their way to the net. While many celebs would flip over such a violation of privacy, Megan Fox has brought her usual laid-back attitude to the scandal and has decided it's not worth getting all worked up over.

According to the Daily News, Fox considered taking legal action against the person she believes leaked the photos, and then decided against it. Once she realized that the images show her wearing silicon stickers on her privatest parts, she realized she didn't care. Said Fox, "I had booby stickers on. If I'd been actually topless, I would have sued someone... I know who, and I never did anything about it. It's her karma to deal with, not mine."

We know it's impossible, but we love to believe that it was Lindsay Lohan who leaked these photos. Fox recently revealed that the two didn't get along back when they worked together in 2004, and we love the idea that Lohan has never let go of her grudge and that she's recently been spending her time uploading photos of a scantily clad Megan Fox in-between downing Red Bulls and smoking cigarettes. But we know Lindsay Lohan is smart enough to know that that kind of thing would only bring Megan Fox more attention...and we're sure that's the last thing she wants.

In other Megan Fox news, Fox recently admitted to The Sun that she's a single gal. Said Fox, "I'm currently what you would call single I guess." This sort of clears up the mystery concerning the status of Fox's relationship with ex-fiance Brian Austin Green, The two have been spotted together a lot since "breaking up." But it sure doesn't clear up the mystery of what the heck is going on with Shia LaBeouf...

Lindsay Lohan's Topless Tweet Latest in Bizarre Behavior Bonanza


Lindsay Lohan's behavior continues to spiral downward as the actress has been placed in more and more compromising positions, the latest of which is completely her own doing.

On Tuesday, Lohan sent a scary skinny topless photo of herself to her Twitter followers with the caption "OLD PHOTOS. I'm THAT bored."

PHOTOS: the NSFW photo of Lindsay Lohan.

This followed a weekend in which Page Six spies reported seeing the 22-year-old partying in Southampton with her younger brother and having security guards delete photos of her taken by partygoers, before changing scenery and behaving "extremely oddly and erratically" at the New York City club The Box at 4:30 a.m., where she reportedly spent some quality time with its stripper pole.

"She walked up to a tall, handsome guy and asked him a question," a source told Page Six. "When he said he didn't know the answer, she lost it and started yelling and cursing a flying around the room. She was not acting normal."








Lindsay Lohan puts topless pictures of herself on Twitter Lohan's nakedness was covered by blonde hair extensions covering her breasts

IS it boredom, is it desperation? Another split with girlfriend Sam Ronson? Whatever, Lindsay Lohan has posted naked pictures of herself on Twitter.

Back in the US after her holiday in London, Lohan's nakedness was covered by blonde hair extensions covering her breasts.

But wait -- is she the Lindsay we know today? 

"OLD PHOTOS. I'm THAT bored," she wrote.

It was taken on the set of one of the now-rarely used actress's fund-raising ventures, an advertisement for cosmetic company Fornarnia.

    * Pictures: Lindsay Lohan

Meanwhile E! news reports that after Lindsay and Samantha Ronson got back together last month following their split in April, the couple has once again broken up.

The couple reportedly broke up again Monday night after an argument.

A major issue between the two was Sam's friendship with Nicole Richie, who's reportedly no fan of Lohan.

Lindsay Lohan sent her Twitter followers a little extra something this week.
The bad news for Lindsay Lohan: Scotland Yard apparently wants to question her about $400,000 worth of diamond jewelry that turned up missing after a photo shoot she did for Elle UK magazine.

Everyone at the June 6 photo shoot will be questioned about the disappearance of the jewelry, a diamond necklace and earrings on loan from Christian Dior. The jewelry was reported missing as Lohan - who's been known to "borrow" other things, such as fur coats - headed home.

The good news for Lindsay: Elle, which confirmed that the items disappeared, says it doesn't believe she is responsible.

And even better (?) news for Lohan fans: She posted a "topless" self-portrait of herself on Twitter, perhaps to draw attention away from that nasty jewelry heist business.

Yep. No jewelry there.

Reports suggest this time the split happened over text with Ronson's friend Nicole Richie playing a major role in the break up.
 
E! Online claims Li-Lo and Ronson had another argument on Monday night after Lindsay reportedly 'lost it' with Sam over her friendship with Nicole, who is allegedly not Lohan's biggest fan.

Lindsay Lohan Takes Topless Picture - Posts to Twitter

Lindsay Lohan sure knows how to keep her name in the headlines. Yesterday's news has her possibly linked to a jewel heist and today she's posting topless pictures of herself to her Twitter page. While the image doesn't show off all of her assets it still may not be suitable for work.

Other LiLo headlines today are bringing her on-again off-again relationship with Samantha Ronson into the spotlight, saying this time it is over for good. According to sources, "Sam let Lindsay back into her life as a friend, but now even a friendship seems impossible. No matter how many times she promises to change, Lindsay loses control and starts acting like a maniac."

    * Miley Cyrus involved in another photo scandal
    * Megan Fox falls victim to leaked topless photos
    * Lindsay Lohan and Sam Ronson: back together?

For a minute, Lindsay Lohan was pretending to be serious about acting again.

The starlet landed a role in the independent movie, "The Other Side," and told producer Kent Harper she would be "serious" and "committed" to the project, which starts filming in October.

So what does an attention-craving actress do until fall?

In Lohan's case: post a semi-nude photo of yourself on the web.

The actress, 22, sent out a topless picture of herself with long, blonde extensions strategically covering her chest on Twitter.

Lohan, who is Fornarina's summer 2009 spokeswoman, took the self-portrait on her Blackberry during a shoot for the Italian clothing label in January.

"OLD PHOTOS," she tweeted on Monday. "I'm THAT bored."

Lohan may have been bored, but she wasn't dumb.

She tagged E! correspondent Ben Lyons and gossip blogger Perez Hilton in the photo's caption.

Lohan's latest self-exploitation stunt comes after string of mishaps that have followed the actress.

After two unidentified men attempted to unsuccessfully break into her Hollywood residence in May, Lohan's relationship with on-off gal pal Samantha Ronson finally hit rock bottom.

The actress is now under investigation for the disappearance of $400,000 worth of Dior jewelry that went missing from a magazine photoshoot in London.

Three Good Reasons Why Brett Favre Should Stay Retired

I know what you're probably thinking, and those three girls are not the three reasons why Brett Favre should stay retired.

As is the case every year, a media circus has swarmed around one burning question—will Brett Favre return to the NFL for one* more year?

*Words apparently don't mean much to Favre, who has retired twice and pondered a comeback both times; he always leaves the door propped open just enough to keep us guessing, though.

As many NFL experts have discussed over the past few weeks and months, there's really nothing left for Favre to prove: he won a Super Bowl, he's won three MVPs, and holds nearly every major passing record in the book.

This time, his comeback seems to have taken on a new dimension—it's no longer "for love of the game" as it always has been in the past (although even that is up for debate).

This time, Favre has a vendetta against his old team and only wants to return to make a statement.

I don't know who to blame more heavily; Favre for making this such a ludicrous and ridiculous event year after year, or the media for continually feeding the attention-hungry beast that is Favre's ego.

Quite frankly (and I think I am speaking for most football fans here), I'm sick of it, and I just wish he'd stay retired.

Here's a list of a few good reasons why Favre shouldn't come back.





Plaxico Burress is labeled a 'disaster as a teammate'

Tim Hasselbeck, appearing on ESPN's "NFL Live," sounded as if he might advise the Jets against signing Plaxico Burress, unless, of course, they want a guy who might "disappear in games."

Here's Tim:

"When you're looking at Plaxico Burress, there's no doubt that he can be a dominant receiver at times on Sundays. We've seen it. But with that being said, I played with the guy. I was in the locker room with him for two years. He's a disaster as a teammate. He's a disaster as a guy that you have to coach.

"And what do I mean by that? If you want to wait for a guy to show up to meetings, if you want to have to beg a guy to run full-speed in practice, if you want a guy that would disappear in games because he doesn't get the ball early - then look, Plaxico Burress is your guy.

"But if you don't want those distractions, and you don't want to deal with the other headaches that come along with Plaxico Burress, then you better stay away from him."







Donte' Stallworth vs. Michael Vick: It's Better to Kill People Than Dogs

Daniel Espinoza was 17 when he was involved in a DUI accident that claimed the life of two people in Palm Beach County, Fla.

Despite his lack of prior trouble, a strong family background, and the fact that he was a minor, he received a 24-year sentence for vehicular manslaughter. He will be over 40-years-old when he is released.

Angela Harper, who experienced the personal hell of losing her own son in a crash related to alcohol consumption (blood alcohol content of 0.11 percent), was sentenced to nine years in prison after being charged and convicted of vehicular manslaughter in Jacksonville, Fla.

Natalie Rodriques was sentenced to 15 years in prison for a DUI manslaughter in Tampa after killing a 16-year-old boy while driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.13 percent.

Donte' Stallworth, the Cleveland Browns wide receiver, plowed into 59-year-old Mario Reyes while operating his vehicle with a blood alcohol level of 0.126 percent in Miami and has now been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Wait...what!?

DUI manslaughter is a second-degree felony in the state of Florida and carries a sentence of five to 15 years in jail, with the average for a single death being in the 10-year minimum range.

Not only is Stallworth's sentence unheard of, it's got to be a bitter pill to swallow for all the "average Joes" like Espinoza, who will be cooling his heels for a quarter-century for a mistake he made as a minor.

Stallworth could afford a driver, and he shouldn't have even been close to the road in his condition.

What Stallworth can also afford is an "undisclosed settlement" to Reyes' family in exchange for forfeiting their right to a civil suit and apparent prosecutorial leniency.

The national outcry has been nonexistent. Stallworth is still not "indefinitely suspended" by the NFL and, in all likelihood, may end up suiting up for games this year.

In comparison to the Stallworth sentence, Michael Vick received 23 months in jail for dogfighting charges leveled against him. This exceeded both the prosecutor's recommendation of 12-18 months and the sentences received by his co-defendants Purnell Peace and Quanis Phillips, who were charged with the exact same crime.

It is also worth noting that dogfighting cases are seldom even sentenced in the United States (dogs are considered property), and in the absence of an agent actually witnessing a dog fight, the circumstances of a kennel can be readily explained.

Dead dogs in the backyard? Well, dogs die, plain and simple.

You'd probably find the same scenario at any greyhound racing facility that you encountered. By quirks in the law, that behavior is perfectly legal.

Enter PETA and a media frenzy with a national outcry, and you get a harsher than standard sentence and an "example made" of a bad egg who murdered dogs without compassion.

The point of this article is not to argue sentencing laws in the United States (though clearly there needs to be some consistency), and it is not to exaggerate the seriousness of one crime while diminishing the seriousness of another.

It's merely to find some sort of perspective in the midst of the craziness that seems to be incurrent in our legal system and society.

We expect the mob to be fickle, and we expect the media to pander to the mob, but we expect the legal system to operate in a more reasonable fashion, apart from the whims, outrage, and indifference of a populace that is more and more ready to pass judgment without the need or want of the facts.

Was it Vick's blood lust we were punishing, or our own we were satiating? Is it Stallworth's crime, or his victim that we're indifferent to? Or are we just so used to buying what the media's selling (or not selling) that we take it with a glass of water every night without question?

In the end, Vick found himself in a rough position for a rich man to be in. There were no families of his deceased dogs that he could buy off, and he didn't have enough money to buy off the legions of dog lovers who called for his demise (though if he did, I bet they would've taken it).

There were no questions of racism that could be raised because, unlike O.J. Simpson, no one wants you to get off when you kill a dog. But if you stab a white woman, well, that's a different story.

Old tensions rise up and muddy the issue.

There were no stories he could spin about playing around with a gun that blew away his driver because, unlike Jayson Williams, his buddies all turned against him.

And so Stallworth will be walking as a free man less than a couple months after he took the life of another.

Another human, that is.

And when the day comes when I make my million dollars and find myself in a homicidal mood, you can bet I won't be touching a dog, or a dolphin, or a horse. No, you can bet I'll have the good sense to kill a human...

...and then eat a pig, a cow, or a chicken for dinner.







Rex Grossman begins anew with Texans
Despite better résumé than many QBs, he's unlikely to play in Houston


Twelve NFL teams will report to training camp next month with No. 1 quarterbacks who have not won as many games as a starter as Rex Grossman.

So the question isn't why the Houston Texans signed Grossman to a no-risk, low-cost, one-year contract worth the veteran's minimum of $620,000 to compete for a backup role. The question is why so many other teams -- besides those in the fledgling United Football League -- ignored a quarterback who, loathe him or hate him in Chicago, was 19-12 as a starter in the regular season.

Experience used to help quarterbacks in the NFL job market. Now it is as passé as a paper résumé.

"It wasn't a whole lot of teams to choose from, to be honest," Grossman told reporters Monday in Houston after his minicamp practice with the Texans.

David Haugh David Haugh E-mail | Recent columns

His second practice will get better because it would be hard to get worse: Grossman threw three interceptions that coach Gary Kubiak blamed on Grossman's learning the offense about an hour before hitting the field.

"Everything was moving real fast for me, so hopefully it'll slow down in training camp," said Grossman, who was assigned jersey No. 5. "I'm just excited to be here, and I'm going to work as hard as I can to get back on top."

Longtime Rex-istentialists around Chicago will note that Grossman's cliché-ridden vow to "get back on top" already represents progress. He made a habit -- a very telling bad habit -- with the Bears of repeating his intention of becoming the best quarterback in the league.

That ambition often blinded him. Boldly stating the goal of being the NFL's best suggested that he didn't know what became increasingly clear during his descent after the 2006 season: His smallish stature limits Grossman in ways that force him to adjust his go-for-broke approach. He never has.

Now perhaps humbled by spending three months on the free-agent market that were so quiet, he felt compelled to switch agents, Grossman has grasped the obvious. Trying to be the top quarterback in the league is nonsense -- for the time being, just settle for being one of the top 96.

"This league is about adversity, [and] everyone faces adversity at some point," Grossman said. "I've had my fair share already. This is just another situation that I'm going to have to somehow get on the other side."

Kubiak liked Grossman before the 2003 draft, when he was the Denver Broncos' offensive coordinator. When he got Grossman on the phone last week, he promised nothing but a chance to compete for a roster spot.

"I asked him what he was looking for, and he said, 'Coach, [a chance] is all I'm looking for, I just want to get back to work,' " Kubiak said. "He's a playmaker. He does a lot of things off schedule. If we can get him within our system, calmed down with the ball, as far as consistency, he fits well with what we do."

Understandably, Grossman feels lucky to fit anywhere in the NFL. One day in the future, he might again enjoy life as a starter, but that future is much later rather than sooner, if at all. Kubiak, a fan of the two-quarterback system, wouldn't even commit to keeping three QBs on the roster.

The Texans are Matt Schaub's team. They also wrote a bonus check worth $2.4 million to backup Dan Orlovsky in March, when Grossman was on the market. That's a lot of dough for a guy more famous in Detroit for stepping out of the end zone than helping his team take the next step.

Orlovsky. Ryan Fitzpatrick. Kyle Boller. Patrick Ramsey. Have any of these quarterbacks played in a Super Bowl or gone 2-2 in the playoffs? How did they get jobs before Grossman?

"It was tough going through some real close calls [with teams] and then they decided on another guy," Grossman said. "That happened four or five times. Then two or three teams were waiting a little bit longer, and I decided I just want to get on a team. And Houston offered me that opportunity."

It comes at an opportune, critical time in Grossman's development as a passer.

As one scout said, Grossman looked "lost" mechanically at times since losing his job three games into the 2007 season. But Kubiak knows quarterbacks, and his offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan, knows offense because Shanahans know offenses the way Gallos know wine.

For his part, Grossman seems more interested in looking forward, not backward, a sign of the maturity that helped him weather some stormy days in Chicago.

"I won a lot more games than I lost, we went to the Super Bowl, and that's what I'm going to remember 10 or 20 years from now," Grossman said. "I look back at it as a wonderful opportunity, great memories."

If Grossman is patient and persistent, they don't have to be the last good memories from his NFL career.

Britney Spears 'Circus' Tour Returning To North America

If you seek more Britney Spears, you're in luck. The pop singer is adding another North American leg to her elaborate "Circus" tour to support her already platinum-selling album of the same name, her official website announced today (June 10). Produced by AEG Live, the tour will bring Spears back to Canada and the U.S. for a 20-city run beginning August 20 in Hamilton, Ontario and wrapping in Las Vegas, Nev. on September 27.
 
"I'm so excited to bring The Circus back to North America," said Spears. "I've made some really cool changes to the show that I think my fans are really going to love. I also get to bring the show to some new cities we missed the first time around."
 
Her first arena run since 2004, "The Circus Tour Starring Spears" kicked off in New Orleans, La. on March 3 and  and is the highest grossing tour of 2009 so far. The $50 million production features Spears in the role of a ringmaster surrounded by a full cast of dancers, magicians, clowns and acrobats, and it requires 34 trucks to haul its 60 tons of equipment from one show to the next.
 
Spears also announced today that the "Circus" tour will hit Australia in November, marking the first time the singer has performed there, reports Billboard.biz. Six dates have been announced so far, starting with November 6 at Perth's Burswood Dome.





Lindsay Lohan and the case of the missing jewels

Poor, troubled Lindsay Lohan, she can't seem to catch a break (or maybe she's not really trying?). Anyway, there was a shocking jewelry theft at a London photo shoot a few weeks ago — $400,000 worth of diamonds — and some observers seem to think Linds had something to do with it. Why? Well, because she was there.

But there were reportedly 20 other people there, you say, so isn't it a little unfair to simply point the finger at a struggling straight-to-cable film actress?

Yes and No. Yes, because, sure, anyone could have snatched the jewels. No, because this isn't the first time Lohan has been at the center of such nefarious accusations.

British media said the jewels were made by Dior and loaned to Elle magazine for the shoot in north London on June 6. The theft was reported to police a couple of days later. Police have made no arrests, and are interviewing several people in connection with their inquiry. A representative for Lohan said she was not being investigated personally and she had not yet been questioned by police. "No one has contacted us" about it, said the spokeswoman.

On the shoot, according to an insider quoted by a gossip site who may or may not have made up this quote, "She kept going on about the jewels, asking if she could have them. We all thought she was joking."

But now, the pattern: In April of '07, Linds was accused of taking more than $10,000 worth of clothes and jewelry from model

Lauren Hastings while Hastings was working in Europe and a mutual friend was house sitting, according to Star magazine. In August of that same year, she kept some clothes on loan from Louis Vuitton for an Elle magazine photo shoot. Seven months later, she was photographed leaving a party wearing an $11,000 fur coat that didn't belong to her. (She later quietly returned it.)






David Letterman apologizes, Sarah Palin accepts

Finally, an apology.

In an extraordinary mea culpa last night, talk show host David Letterman told viewers of his program that his monologue joke regarding Sarah Palin's daughter "was beyond flawed," and added, "I would like to apologize, especially to the two daughters involved, Bristol and Willow, and also to the governor and her family and everybody else who was outraged by the joke.

"I'm sorry about it and I'll try to do better in the future."

The Alaska governor accepted Letterman's apology, "Of course I accept [the apology] on behalf of young women like my daughters." A statement from Palin was shown on this morning's "Today."

Iranians Revolt on Twitter, Facebook & YouTube

Iranians revolt on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube

"Iran Elections," "Iranians," "Tehran" and "Mousavi" (also spelled "Moussavi") were the trending topics on Twitter for a whole day on Tuesday, June 16. When four out of ten trending topics are all about the same issue, you know the world is focused. This blog is testimony to how the social media tools of Twitter, Facebook and YouTube can help fight back censorship in the 21st Century.

According to NY Times article, it was noted that Twitter was aware of the power of its service in this regard. Acknowledging its role on the global stage, the San Francisco-based company said on Monday June 15 that it was delaying a planned shutdown for maintenance for a day, citing "the role Twitter was currently playing as an important communication tool in Iran.

Facts that show that the social networks of Twitter, Facebook and YouTube sit in the epicenter of this maelstrom is evidenced by the 100s of web sites, profiles  and fan pages that emerged this week.  Mr. Moussavi's fan group on Facebook alone has swelled to over 50,000 members, an exponential increase since election day a week earlier.




Is Google Getting Into Micro-Blogging?
Rumored new Google search engine could take on Twitter.

Google Subnet, NetworkWorld

In its effort to index the world -- or at least cyberspace -- Google is rumored to be working on a microblogging search engine. Although live search is not Google's forte, that isn't stopping it from creating a MicroBlogSearch tool. So say the folks that write the unaffiliated Google Operating System blog, who caught a hint of the new tool in Google's localization service tool.

The blog describes the new search service:

"Much like Google Blog Search, Google's microblogging search service will sort the results by relevancy and it also will be integrated with Google's web search engine: the keywords that are frequently used in recent posts will trigger a MicroBlogsearch universal search group."

Twitter is the major target of the search, but by all means, wouldn't be the only microblogging service to be indexed. In fact, Google may be thinking of extending the service to include "micro-messages" as well, which is not well defined, but probably includes things like social networking status updates. The goal of such a service isn't just to keep a massive record of every tweet in the world, but to be able to spot trends by watching the search terms, just as Google does today with its other search services.

On the one hand, it might be good thing to have a single place to search all applications with microblog features including Friendfeed, Plurk, even Google's own Jaiku, purchased by Google in 2007.

On the other, who uses anything but Twitter? And search engines for Twitter abound, most of them real time, with the kind of nifty features that Google can't match. One of our personal favorites is TwitPipe, a tool that offers a realtime stream of tweets based on keywords as well as the ability to search.

Microsoft gives up YouTube chase

SAN FRANCISCO--In the coming months, Microsoft plans to significantly scale back Soapbox, the video site it once hoped might take on YouTube in the user-generated content arena.

In an interview on Tuesday, Microsoft Vice President Erik Jorgensen said Soapbox is one of the areas that Microsoft is pulling back on in the wake of a tough economic environment. His unit also recently pulled the plug on Microsoft Money, the company's personal finance software product.

Soapbox launched in 2006--the same year Google announced its deal to buy YouTube--but never emerged as a significant threat to the market leader. (See video, left, for a review from Soapbox's early days.)

In 2007, Microsoft stopped allowing new users to access the site while it added filtering technology aimed at reducing the amount of copyright content posted on its site. It returned a few months later, but has been largely an afterthought in the video market, except as a home for Microsoft's own videos.

Microsoft hopes to transform Soapbox, originally code-named Warhol, from an also-ran in the user-generated content space into a forum where bloggers and citizen journalists can post videos relevant to areas in which MSN focuses, categories like entertainment, lifestyle, and finance.

Jorgensen

"We definitely look at it and say we want Soapbox to stand for something and add to our overall video strategy," he said, noting that being a broad user-generated video player was too expensive in light of the current economy.

While Microsoft will focus on such content, it's still unclear whether it will continue to allow users to freely upload their videos or if it will require some sort of editorial selection of the movies before they make it onto the site.

"We haven't decided whether you just continue to support it or whether it is too expensive and out of our focus to do," he said.






MySpace to cut staff by nearly 30%

 Social networking website MySpace said Tuesday it will reduce its staff by nearly 30% as part of its efforts to restructure into a leaner organization. The restructuring plan will affect all U.S. divisions and lower the total number of domestic staff to 1,000 employees, the company said. "Simply put, our staffing levels were bloated and hindered our ability to be an efficient and nimble team-oriented company," Chief Executive Owen Van Natta said. "I understand that these changes are painful for many. They are also necessary for the long-term health and culture of MySpace. Our intent is to return to an environment of innovation that is centered on our user and our product." MySpace is owned by News Corp. /quotes/comstock/15*!nws/quotes/nls/nws (NWS 10.73, -0.33, -2.98%) which also owns The Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones Newswires and MarketWatch, the publisher of this report.

Heidi Montag Asked Kim Kardashian For Playboy Advice
'I talked her through the whole process and helped her make up her mind,' Kardashian says of 'Hills' star.


Although "Hills" star Heidi Montag played coy on Monday when MTV News asked about her reported pictorial for the September issue of Playboy, her friend Kim Kardashian talked freely about Heidi's photos, which, according to Spencer Pratt, are "hypothetically" set to hit newsstands in August.

In fact, it was Kardashian, who has posed for Playboy herself, who helped the "Hills" star make the decision to pose for the magazine.

"Actually, I was in Mexico and I got a call from Heidi saying, 'Call me right now,' " Kardashian told MTV News on Tuesday (June 16). "So I called her and she had said to me, 'What do you think? What's your opinion on if I were to do Playboy?' "

Kardashian told her to "go for it."

"I think that now's the time," she said. "I think it's a very classy magazine. It's artsy. I talked her through the whole process and helped her make up her mind."

Of course, Kardashian, who is currently the spokeswoman for Nivea's "Good-bye Cellulite, Hello Bikini" challenge, wasn't the only person who helped Heidi make up her mind. Spencer also had a hand in the decision-making process. "Her and Spencer talked it over," Kardashian said. "They felt like it was the right thing for her to do and I'm anxious to see it."

Kardashian is confident that Heidi had as good an experience as she did when she posed for the magazine.

"It was a really fun process for me," she said, adding that getting asked to be on the cover is an "honor." "I'm excited to see what the pictures will turn out to be."



Reese Witherspoon next celeb to be pregnant? Bet on it

Reese Witherspoon

Go figure... not only you can bet on which celebrity will announce she is pregnant next; the current odds favorite is Reese Witherspoon!
 
Online sportsbook Bookmaker.com lists the Legally Blonde star as the most likely celebrity to get pregnant next and it's not a huge surprise given the recent media rumors about a potential baby to be for Witherspoon.
 
She has been wearing lots of loose-fitting clothes in recent paparazzi photos and was recently photographed with what appeared to be a possible baby lump so it would not be a surprise to see Reese Witherspoon announce she is pregnant in the upcoming weeks.
 
You got that right; Reese's odds are currently sitting at +250 which means you could win $250 for each $100 you bet on her to be the next celeb to disclose she's pregnant!
 
The next biggest favorite to be pregnant is Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Reggie Bush.  She has joked around in recent months about getting married and having a baby with her New Orleans Saints beau but so far nothing has come of it and it appears that Kardashian was likely just either joking around or perhaps just utilizing some positive thinking.
 
Britney Spears is a celebrity who seems to be pregnant again every 2-3 months but those rumors seemed to really take off in recent weeks after Ryan Seacrest announced via Twitter that he had heard that the pop star may be popping out another youngin'.
 
Spears has since denied the rumors but when you are noted for your baby-having obsession, it's not a stretch to assume that Brit is not quite done with her child bearing ways.
 
The long shot to be the next celebrity to announce she is pregnant is former 7th Heaven star Jessica Beal.  Although she is currently filming a movie which has her cast as a stripper, Biel has been dating Justin Timberlake for a decent amount of time and the two may be ready to take the next step in their relationship.
 
The two have been rumored to be having a baby for close to a year now so keep an eye out in the news for the next celebrity to announce they are pregnant.

Pamela Anderson proved the mane attraction at Saturday's Life Ball 2009 in Vienna - after teasing her blonde locks into the biggest bouffant ever.

The former Baywatch babe, 41, arrived at the Austrian bash, in support of Aids charities, in a black ensemble that looked like she'd had a fight with a bin bag.

She later changed into a gold leotard and skyscraper heels - a look copied by 24-year-old Katy Perry.

Not sure about that shell upholstery, Katy.





Miley Cyrus photo scandal, photo allegedly shows Miley caught in a sexual act

 
Many are searching for a Miley Cyrus photo depicting oral sex. Is the photo real or just a photoshop creation?

The internet is flooded with people searching "Miley Cyrus oral sex photos" and "Miley Cyrus leaked photos". People are hoping to see a photo of Miley, who is only 16, performing oral sex.

Many people searching for the Miley picture may also be under 18, but many are probably older than 18. To those that are over 18 please remember Miley Cyrus is a 16 year old girl. Looking at a picture of a minor performing sexual acts is considered child pornography.

The truth is the photo of Miley giving oral sex is probably a fake. The picture looks like it has been photoshopped only to start vicious rumors. The website called the Paparazzis has showed how the fake photo of Cyrus may have been created. Look at the edited photos and decided yourself.

Miley Cyrus's rep has addressed the photo scandal. "The alleged photo of Miley Cyrus circulating the internet is completely fabricated," the singer's rep told the Daily News.

Miley Cyrus jogging pictures
When photos were posted in March of Miley Cyrus exposing some cleavage while jogging, the internet couldn't get enough of her. The jogging pictures were posted on many sites including Perez Hilton. The cleavage pictures were not really a huge deal. She was simply jogging with her then boyfriend, Justin Gaston, when paparazzi snapped photos. Miley got verbally attacked on websites for daring to wear a bikini top under a shirt while jogging.

Microsoft Sues Three For Click Fraud
The scheme involved promoting the sale of World of Warcraft currency and collecting auto insurance referral fees.

Microsoft on Monday filed a lawsuit against three individuals residing in Canada for allegedly promoting the sale of World of Warcraft currency and collecting auto insurance referral fees through click fraud.
In a complaint filed with the United States District Court in Seattle, Microsoft charges that Eric Lam, Gordon Lam, and Melanie Suen, of Vancouver, British Columbia, though various companies, abused Microsoft's adCenter by conducting a campaign of competitor click fraud.
Competitor click fraud is a way of gaming keyword ad auctions in which advertisers receive ad placement based on a bid price. The scheme involves using automated methods to click on a competitor's pay-per-click ads in order to deplete the competitor's ad budget and to allow one's own less expensive ads to be shown.
"Microsoft gathered substantial evidence that a handful of individuals were likely responsible for these click fraud attacks, which affected online advertisements related to auto insurance and the online role playing game, World of Warcraft," said Microsoft's associate general counsel Tim Cranton in an online post on Monday. "Once we became aware of the click fraud attacks we quickly took action to address any impact on advertisers and to enhance safeguards to further protect our network."
Microsoft is seeking an injunction against the defendants and $750,000 in damages, three times the estimated $250,000 allegedly earned by the defendants. The company's complaint states that it reimbursed advertisers for $1.5 million as a result of the defendants' alleged actions.
The overall incidence of click fraud declined in the first quarter of 2009, according to Click Forensics. Tom Cuthbert, the click auditing company's president, attributes this to progress Google and Yahoo have made blocking click fraud driven by botnets. However, the company reports that click fraud from malicious scripts -- JavaScript code that executes with the loading of a Web page -- is on the rise.
Microsoft is suing the two Lams and Suen for violating the Microsoft adCenter Terms and Conditions, among other charges. However, the company appears to have little interest in determining whether its advertisers are involved in breaching other contractual agreements.
Blizzard Entertainment, which owns the World of Warcraft, forbids the sale of World of Warcraft gold though the game's Terms of Service agreement. Although eBay has tried to ban the sale of virtual goods like World of Warcraft gold, Google's, Microsoft's, and Yahoo's ad networks all display ads offering to sell World of Warcraft currency for real money.
Neither Microsoft nor Blizzard immediately responded to a request for comment.


 More Americans Go To Facebook Than MySpace

Facebook bypassed MySpace in terms of total U.S. visitors for the first time in May, as Facebook's popularity in terms its user base continued to rise.
Facebook pulled in 70.278 million unique visitors in the states, compared to MySpace's 70.237 million, according to data released by ComScore. That made Facebook the most popular site in the U.S., in terms of visitors. Just a month earlier, Facebook had a little over 67 million U.S. visitors behind MySpace's 70.9 million.
A year ago, in May 2008, Facebook was at 36 million unique visitors compared to 73.7 million for MySpace.
Worldwide, Facebook continued its wide lead over the News Corp.-owned MySpace. In May, Facebook had more than 307 million users, compared to MySpace's 123 million.
Facebook first surpassed MySpace in global visitors in April 2008. The social networking sites were neck-in-neck with Facebook at 116 million and MySpace at 115 million. That gap widened the following month, as Facebook logged almost 124 million visitors and MySpace dropped to 114.5 million.


Google scrambles over Microsoft Bing

Reports have it that Google co-founder Sergey Brin was so rattled by Microsoft's Bing search engine that a team of top engineers have been assembled in put together some "urgent upgrades" to Google's search engine. Underscoring the difference this time around, the New York Post spoke to an anonymous insider, who noted, "New search engines have come and gone in the past 10 years, but Bing seems to be of particular interest to Sergey."
Google's CEO Eric Schmidt, understandably, remains tight lipped about the company's position toward Microsoft's Bing. In an interview with Fox Business Network, Schmidt would only say, "It's not the first entry for Microsoft. They do this about once a year."
Microsoft calls Bing a "decision engine" rather than a search engine, and emphasized that it is pushing "beyond how search engines work today." Microsoft appears to be having success, gaining two percentage points to reach about 11 percent of the market share. Another report by StatCounter pegs Bing at 16.28 percent of the market share. Both estimates put it ahead of Yahoo's 10.22 percent.


Living on Twitter Time
   
Is Twitter no longer an ultra-hip refuge for the perpetually plugged-in?
Now that Time's cover has certified it as part of mass culture, the quirky little Web site can hardly be dismissed as a mere oddity. And the masses who have jumped from MySpace to Facebook to Twitter might at any moment decamp for some hot new hangout.
But the site is less important than the way its users are changing the media culture. They are exchanging more than just 140-character bursts of blather about their daily lives: They are guiding their friends and followers to the latest news, information, gossip, snark and a pulsating, real-time debate. Old-style news outlets would kill for that sense of belonging.
When I mentioned on my Twitter page that I would be talking on the air about Conan O'Brien taking over "The Tonight Show," I got a flood of messages. Some called him a genius, others think he's a goofball. What I quickly learned is that O'Brien is a polarizing figure in the late-night world, loved and loathed with equal fervor.
The speed is often blinding as people tap updates from their phones. "If you're looking for interesting articles or sites devoted to Kobe Bryant, you search Google," Time's Steven Johnson wrote. "If you're looking for interesting comments from your extended social network about the three-pointer Kobe just made 30 seconds ago, you go to Twitter."
Twitter's 17 million monthly visitors -- up from just over 1 million a year ago -- are shaping their environment, such as making discussions easily searchable by including the hashtag or pound (#) symbol. They create an echo-chamber effect by "re-tweeting" -- that is, repeating -- noteworthy observations or links. But as with Facebook, whose redesigned news feed now resembles Twitter, the ultimate appeal is forging connections. USA Today last week lamented the sheer banality of most status updates, but even these provide a sense of someone's routine, interests and sense of humor.
The guilty pleasure of peeking into another person's life is heightened when said person is prominent, whether it's a network anchor, a politician or the likes of Shaq, Oprah or Ashton Kutcher. Oh look, Chris Cuomo's daughter is sick. Hey, Bonnie Fuller got drenched while lugging bags around Central Park and her hair got mega-frizzy.
Not everyone buys the notion that this is a step forward for mankind. "For celebrities, Twitter is a gigantic ego stroke," writes CBS Sports columnist Gregg Doyel. "It's a game of narcissist strip poker, and you're the thong."
Sure, the boldfaced names may provide carefully calibrated glimpses, but some actively engage with their fan base.
I became friendly with Mariel Hemingway when the actress began following me on Twitter. When I began checking out her page, I was struck by how often she shared the details of her life, from her hiking to her bedtime. Without any handlers or publicists, we agreed to meet for a CNN interview when I was in Los Angeles.
"I'm a very private person," Hemingway told me. "But I find it wonderfully comforting to know that there's just people out there to connect with that -- yes, they don't know me, but . . . I think you feel a closeness with people, and it's a great way to kind of get what your message is out there." In her case, that includes promoting her new cookbook.
The instant feedback is also having an impact on reporting. I asked my Twitter followers last week what they valued about the site, and was deluged with responses that would have taken days of calling to collect:

Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova beat China's Na Li wins Aegon Classic
 Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova beat China's Na Li in straight sets Sunday to win the Aegon Classic title in Birmingham, England.
The scores were 6-0, 7-6 (7-2).
The 20-year-old Rybarikova captured her first-ever WTA Tour singles event by taking a grueling second-set tiebreaker.
"It's the best feeling in my career," said Rybarikova, who broke serve three times while capturing the first set. "It's unbelievable. It's like a dream. I was very nervous in the tie-break, but I kept moving well, and I think she was more nervous than me."
With her victory, Rybarikova took home $37,000.
The fourth-seeded Na was trying for her third career WTA title and first this season. She also was the runner-up in Monterrey in March, falling to Marion Bartoli of France in the final.
"I was missing a lot today," Na said.
She advanced to the final by beating former world No. 1 Maria Sharapova in Saturday's semifinals.


Maria Sharapova's stalker fears
Safety fears: Maria Sharapova
Safety fears: Maria Sharapova
In addition to concerns over fitness thanks to an injured shoulder which stopped her playing for nine months, grunting tennis ace Maria Sharapova, 22, has a more serious headache  -  she may have a stalker.
Defeated on Saturday by China's Li Na in the semi-final of the Edgbaston Classic in Birmingham, stunning Maria seems to have a male admirer who follows her matches there with special interest. While he may be harmless, the Russian beauty is taking no chances.
Unlike the other players at Edgbaston, the former world No. 1, who won Wimbledon in 2004 at the age of just 17, is always accompanied by two burly minders.
Says a tennis regular: 'Maria has two bodyguards with her all the time and everyone has been wondering why.'
And I am told: 'There is a particular middle-aged man who officials are slightly concerned about. He is very noticeable and he's been given a nickname  -  The Professor.'

Twilight and New Moon Robert Pattinson confirmed as one of 2 actors up for Jeff Buckley role
That's right Twilighters and Jeff Buckley fans - Twilight and New Moon star Robert Pattinson is one of the 2 actors up for the role of Jeff Buckley in the upcoming biopic. According to ABC News, it is Robert Pattinson vs. James Franco for the role.

The Role: Jeff Buckley, son of musician Tim Buckley, got popular in the '90s playing cover songs in the East Village before focusing on his own material. In 1997, Jeff accidentally drowned in Memphis at the age of 30. Since he only had one studio album, several songs were released posthumously, including his cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," which earned him chart success over a decade after his death.
Should Pattinson be cast?


'American Idol' Roundup: We're Still Talking About Adam Lambert?
            
Adam LambertCan I just quote the Klaxons for a moment?  Oh, they're a British band, in case you're not up to speed on them.  Anyway.  "It's not over, it's not over, it's not over, it's not over yet."  Yeah, the title did say so, but there are a few things we're bound to miss over the weekend, and right now it's getting, I dunno, weird still talking about it?  Admittedly, however, I've yet to buy the Rolling Stone issue with him on the cover.  But before we get to all the Adam Lambert talk--because everybody has an opinion, it seems--something totally unrelated, and totally nice to read about.
Don't Miss

Item one: Number three for Bo Bice.  The season four runner-up announced that he's expecting a third child with his wife, Caroline.  "American Idol has a new winner every year--seems things are the same in our house," he told People magazine.  "Can't wait to introduce our new little idol to the world [on January 31]!"
The couple have been married for four years, and have two sons, three-year-old Aiden Michael and nine-month-old Caleb James.  He is currently touring this summer, and will be warming up for Lynyrd Skynyrd in two months' time.
Item two: Number two for Adam Lambert.  And by that, I was referring to his interview with ABC's 20/20, where he talked about the same things he told Rolling Stone on that cover story.  Yeah, all that sexuality talk--who he is, why he's comfortable, why he didn't reveal it quickly--only on television.  "I have been for a long time," he said.
The zing at the end of the interview?  "I wouldn't even give myself the label 'bisexual', but 'bi-curious', yes," he said.  "I've been known to make out with girls from time to time.  Couple of drinks involved ... And who knows, maybe it'll go further someday.  I don't know.  Who's the lucky woman?"
Item three: Number I-don't-know-what for Kris Allen.  Because suddenly he's got, among the people who professed to have swooned for his good looks, Adam--he did reveal that he had a crush on Kris on the RS interview.  His comment?  "I'm flattered.  And I think it's hilarious."
Item four: Number one for Gene Simmons?  I did say everybody has an opinion, but I didn't expect him to have a say about the Adam Lambert issue.  The Kiss frontman--yeah, they did perform with Adam during the finale--just wished he would shut up about it already.  "Mostly he should shut up about his sexual preferences," he told a local television station.  "We, America, the rest of the world, really don't care ... I mean, if the story becomes 'I prefer farm animals to,' you know, who cares?"
And then it becomes a little more complicated, but, oh well...

Heidi Montag Says Posing For Playboy 'Would Be A Huge Honor'
'Hills' star does not confirm shoot, but husband Spencer Pratt says magazine 'hypothetically' will be on stands August 15.
While "Hills" star Heidi Montag has declined to directly confirm reports that she has posed for Playboy, she told MTV News that such a decision wouldn't conflict with her Christian beliefs — in fact, she said she thinks posing for the magazine would be a "huge honor."
"If I were to do Playboy, it would be a huge honor," she told MTV News on Monday (June 15), just hours after her and husband Spencer Pratt's dust-up with Al Roker on the "Today" show. "Many iconic women have done it: Charlize Theron, Sharon Stone did it, Marilyn Monroe. So it's a very amazing, well known magazine. I would love to do it, but I would do it very tastefully. I think you would have to see, if I did do it." (Note: Theron's photographs were purchased by Playboy and published over the actress' objections.)
She went on to explain that despite Tweeting constantly about Christianity, she isn't concerned that posing for the magazine would conflict with her beliefs — and she has a very specific reason why.
"I'm more of a modern Mother Theresa," she said. "I would take things with moderation. I think God created the body. I think we're born naked. We die naked. I don't think it's something to be ashamed of. I think the body is a beautiful piece of artwork that God created. I have nothing to be ashamed of."
Meanwhile, her husband, Spencer Pratt, dropped the hint that on "August 15 — hypothetically if this did happen — you can buy the issue and you can look and see how much Heidi maybe would bare."
Ex-Danity Kane singer Aubrey O'Day, who posed for Playboy herself recently, told MTV News that she supported Heidi's decision.
And while Spencer said he's aware that the couple will probably be criticized for it, he's used to criticism. "I live in the backlash," he said. "Maybe a little bit more — so scared!"
Which, of course, raises the question: Would Spencer pose nude if approached? "Playgirl [magazine] shut down," he said. "I was already reaching out them. There is no more Playgirl. I might just start the Spencer magazine where I get naked every month!"
MTV News will have lots more from our interview with Heidi and Spencer in the coming days!


Aubrey O'Day 'Excited' About Heidi Montag's Playboy Photos
'I hope she feels as liberated as I did,' says ex-Danity Kane singer, who also posed for mag.

Although there have been mixed reports about how much flesh Heidi Montag will bare in the September issue of Playboy magazine, Aubrey O'Day, who made her debut in the magazine earlier this year, is "excited" to see how Heidi's photos turned out.
"I'm excited that Heidi will join the long list of Playboy cover girls!" she told MTV News in a statement. "I hope she enjoyed the shoot and feels as liberated as I did! Good luck!"
The news of Heidi's shoot comes months after speculation hit the Web that the "Hills" star would be featured in the pages of the famous lad mag. "There is nudity," a source told People. "It's tasteful — she had a lot of fun with it."
When contacted by MTV News, a rep for Montag — who is now stateside after she and Spencer Pratt quit "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!" — had no comment. But on Friday, after news of the shoot had been confirmed by People's source, TMZ reported that "there will be no real nudity" in the photos.
After O'Day shot her photos for Playboy, spoke candidly to MTV News about the experience, saying that it empowered her. "Being able to feel comfortable with that and show that sex can be a beautiful, comfortable — your sexuality can be a beautiful, comfortable thing — is going to be empowering for people," she said.

Rihanna Rumored Doing Photo Shoot for Playboy
Snapped coming out of Playboy's building in New York City, Rihanna is rumored to do photo shoot for the men's publication.
Rihanna
R 'n' B artist Rihanna has sparked rumors that she might be doing cover shoot for Playboy magazine after she was photographed leaving the Playboy building in New York City on Friday, June 12. She was seen walking all alone and smiling to photographers who took her pics when she was making her way back to her hotel.
No clue on what Rihanna had been doing at the building. Her people and Playboy's camp remain silent as well on the circulating speculation that the songstress is about to be featured on the men's magazine's next edition.
Back in 2008, Rihanna was quoted as telling MTV she avoided posing nude for magazine spread. At that time she said, "I am only 20 so my mother would kill me if I posed nude! When I did that metallic body paint stuff for my [Umbrella] video, I didn't do it to show my body. I didn't do it for people to like me. I did it because it was a cool visual, unexpected, and it looked hot."




Hugh Hefner says sacked Miss California could still pose for Playboy
Hugh Hefner has hinted that an offer may still be on the table for sacked Miss California Carrie Prejean to pose for Playboy.
The beauty queen revealed she'd turned down £100,00 to strip off for the magazine after being dethroned for failing to honour her commitments.
But as far as Playboy founder Hugh Hefner is concerned, a semi-nude spread could still be in the pipeline.
"It's definitely a possibility," Hefner told Access Hollywood, when asked if he'd be interested in having Prejean grace the pages of the magazine.
However, he added that the controversial 22-year-old would have to earn a lucrative deal with Playboy, and do more than "just show up".



Ex-Miss California says no way to Playboy
Former Miss California Carrie Prejean says she will "absolutely not" pose for Playboy or appear on the NBC reality show I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!
Prejean, deposed from her throne this week after pageant officials accused her of missing appearances, ruled out the show and magazine in an interview Friday with Today.
Though Prejean once worried risqué photos taken as part of her modeling career would cost her her crown, she now says her refusal to pose for Playboy may have contributed to pageant officials stripping her title. She said on The Sean Hannity Show on Thursday that her lawyers are looking into possible legal action against pageant executive Keith Lewis, who announced her dismissal Wednesday.
Prejean told TMZ earlier this week that Lewis pushed her to take $140,000 to pose in semi-nude photos for Playboy, but that she refused. Lewis confirmed he presented her with the deal, but only because she wanted to know about all offers. She said the pageant also asked her to appear on I'm a Celebrity.
Prejean has said she was shocked to be fired and believes it was punishment for expressing her opposition to gay marriage during the Miss USA pageant.
The new Miss California, Tami Farrell, says she is ready to fill the role despite the circumstances.
"I think the biggest challenge is I'm stepping into the line of fire," she said. "There's a lot of controversy surrounding this and I want people to know this isn't what I signed up for."



Czech Nurses Score Bigger Boobs
Medical clinics in the Czech Republic use free plastic surgery as an incentive for nurses to renew their contractsiStockphoto
The global financial crises has forced every industry to get a little creative. Rather than go with the stodgy "buy one get one free" approach of many struggling industries, the Czech health care system is wooing its nurses with unusual pizazz. Like most countries around the world, the Czech Republic's health care system is teetering on the brink of collapse, in part due to the nursing shortage. The Czech Republic is in a particular bind: Nurses are emigrating to other countries for better pay and opportunity while fewer people are training to become nurses due to the negative stereotypes left over from communism. The idea of using incentives to encourage employees to renew their contracts is hardly newsworthy. The fact that some Czech medical establishments are using incentives like free breast implants, liposuction and tummy tucks does raise my eyebrows. (Not for long, however, should I decide to become a Czech nurse and opt for a face lift or Botox.)
Now, before you start getting all hot and bothered let's clear up a few facts:
   1. The nurses do not have to go under the knife to keep their jobs. The free boob job is a perk should a nurse herself chose to continue in her current job. No one will be penalized or unable to renew a contract because she does not want plastic surgery (just to note this offer is extended to male nurses and so far one has signed up for lipo).
   2. Offering free plastic surgery to a predominantly female dominated profession complete with stereotypes and kinky fantasies sounds bad. At first it seems blatantly sexist and demeaning to sex-up nurses, but after a ponder I have a different spin. What if companies are just offering what the women want? What is the use of an incentive that is incentiveless? Plastic surgery is absurdly popular in the U.S. and apparently even more so in Eastern Europe. If the Czechs love their Beauty Pageants as much as we love American Idol, then in a crazy twisted way, is winning a little lipo that different than winning a private singing lesson with Adam Lambert? If a couple of fake knockers keep the Czech health care system from tanking, can a bit of silicone really be that bad?
   3. Plastic surgery is not the only form of incentive: it's not silicone valleys or zilch. OK, I admit the nonsurgical alternatives are pretty lame (free German lessons tops the list), but at least this way it's not as if nurses who chose to go au naturale are missing out. Every nurse who signs up gets something, the only reason this story is getting any attention at all is that some of the "somethings" are controversial.
At the end of the day I get why some women are freaked out and consider the surgical incentives degrading. I would have a problem if women were being forced to have the surgery, but that isn't the case. The Czech Republic is desperate for nurses, good-looking or not. Breast implants are not the most PC perk I have ever heard of, but unusual times call for unusual measurements measures


Pornstar Riley Steele Cast in Piranha 3-D
Filed Under : Horror Sequels & Remakes,
According to BD Riley Steele  a porn star has been cast in Alexander Ajas upcoming remake of the classic tale PIRANHA.
According to producer Mark Canton this is also not a cameo role. It is a major role in the film.
Immediately I have to ask why would you cast a porn star? I mean if the role requires for excellent use of the 'OH' face then perfect but for me casting rappers / porn stars / my mail man is an instant way to make your movie feel like a gimmick.
It surprises me mainly because other then this casting news the film has a top notch cast including Elizabeth Shue, Richard Dreyfuss and Ving Rhames. What do you think of this casting note?



Teen aiming to be Page 3 idol
A teenager is appealing to Northamptonshire residents to vote for her to be crowned Page 3 Idol 2009.
Kelly Hall, aged 18, of Ashby Fields, Daventry, has beaten off competition from thousands of other aspiring topless models to make it through to the final 20 of the annual competition.
The former William Parker School pupil appeared in The Sun on Monday and is hoping to win the ultimate prize of a cheque for £5,000 and a year's contract with the national newspaper.
Miss Hall, who is currently working as a beautician at the Beauty Stop in Daventry, said: "I like Page 3 because it is not tacky like some of the magazines are.
"I could not even begin to describe how I would feel if I won.
"The photo shoot was amazing and it was really surreal being surrounded by all the other Page 3 girls.
"I would like to appeal to all the people in Northamptonshire to vote for me to win the competition."
The 18-year-old made her first progress in the competition during a night out at Lava & Ignite in Northampton, when she was chosen ahead of 12 other girls who were dressed in bikinis.
Miss Hall, who has previously been voted Miss Teen Queen UK, is hoping to follow in the footsteps of her idol Keeley Hazell and enjoy a lucrative modelling career.



Anna Paquin promises more nudity
DOUBLE TROUBLE: Anna Paquin says there is increased nudity in the second season of True Blood.

Kiwi actress Anna Paquin has promised there will be more nudity as the second season of True Blood kicks off in America.
Paquin plays waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who is love with a vampire, in Alan Ball's hit HBO show. The second season began screening in America on Sunday night.
The first season has just finished screening on Prime in New Zealand, and the network promised the second season would air later this year.
Paquin, who won a best actress Golden Globe award earlier this year for her role on the show, said she had been working out at the gym more as there was increased nudity in the second season.
"I get more naked this season than I did last season," she told Eonline.com. "We have a really great crew and everyone's really respectful. It's not an issue for me."
"I work my ass off. I'm very careful about what I eat, and I work out a lot. My costume entails bathing suits, short-shorts and nude scenes.
"I don't want to be perpetuating the myth that women actually do look exactly like the way they look in magazines and on television through absolutely no effort!"
Paquin is dating her on-screen boyfriend Stephen Moyer, who plays vampire Bill Compton.



Anna Paquin Nude in HBO's True Blood: Season Two Won't be Twilight or New Moon
You will see Anna Paquin nude a lot in season two of the HBO series "True Blood", the actress promises in an interview.  The cable series airs weekly on the HBO network and is often compared to the smash hit "Twilight" and its sequel movie "New Moon".  Both are based on vampires, but the leading actress in the "True Blood" is the sexy Anna Paquin, and the 26-year-old beauty reminds viewers that no two vampire tales appeal to the same audience.

One big difference is the amount of skin shown, she said.  While Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson keep the Twilight love story with Edward Cullen and Bella Swan clean and romantic in Twilight, Anna says prepare for a more raw experience with her vampire series.

Paquin, who has lightened her dark hair color to blonde is working hard for her nude scenes by hitting the gym. "I work my ass off," she said.  Anna promises to shed more clothes and show off her body for the upcoming scenes of True Blood. "I get more naked this season than I did last season. ... We have a really great crew and everyone's really respectful. It's not an issue for me."
Anna reveals more on the differences with New Moon and Twilight and True Blood, in the interview. "They appeal to two different audiences, she said. "They're completely different age groups that they're trying to appeal to."

Rihanna sex tape clip leaked online
Weeks after nude pictures were exposed, gossip site The Superficial posted a clip of Rihanna's alleged sex tape this weekend that features a close-up of the "Umbrella" singer (or more likely a look-a-like) filmed in nightvision while getting her freak on. We don't think it's her although the girl in question looks pretty similar. If it is her, we don't think it'll do much to tarnish her career the girl's been through worse.



Alleged Rihanna Sex Tape, Is It The Real Deal ?
Rihanna A video purported to be a sex tape featuring embattled singer Rihanna was leaked over the weekend. But, is the tape the real deal ?
For months there have been rumors linking Rihanna and Chris Brown to an alleged sex tape and photographs taken at the peak of their relationship. In May part of that rumor became a reality when 'alleged' nude photographs of Rihanna leaked on the net to be viewed by millions.
Over the weekend a tape, taken in poor lighting, hit the net with a note stating that additional footage would be released June 22 -- the date of Chris Brown's scheduled hearing in Los Angeles on felony assault charges. According to fans of explicit video pornography the nearly 30 sec. video purported to be Rihanna is a fake. In fact, some believe the video is from a tape recorded by porn star Lavish Styles who bears striking resemblance to Rihanna.
The alleged sex tape comes just weeks after Rihanna allegedly lost a nearly guaranteed spread in Vogue magazine.
Sources close to the deal told Star! Magazine that Vogue Editor In Chief Anna Wintour had given Rihanna the indication that the spread was guaranteed but once the 'alleged' nude photographs appeared online Wintour backed out.
According to the same source, "Anna hasn't returned any of her calls. Rihanna's so upset. She hopes the people at Vogue change their minds."

The riders kept their genitals covered after police warned them that if they didn't, they would be cited for indecent exposure.
The cyclists employed some creative methods to avoid tickets.
Some wore thongs or placed stickers in strategic places.
Police didn't issue any citations.
Similar rides were held around the world Saturday to draw attention to the dependence on cars and gasoline.



Rachel Ward says young starlets must go nude to be successful
Rachel Ward
Naked ambition ... Rachel Ward says she regrets not appearing nude on film more often.
    * Rachel Ward says actresses must go nude
    * Wishes she had stripped off to get ahead
    * Pictures: Stars at Beautiful Kate premiere
IT may be a double standard, but actress and film-maker Rachel Ward says young starlets just have to accept that audiences have a right to see them - but not men - naked.
After refusing to bare more than her breasts throughout her career, Ward says she now wishes she had appeared fully nude more often.
"If you're going to be an actress in film, you can't be coy," Ward told The Sunday Telegraph.
"Breasts are sexy. I want to see them and audiences want to see them . . . I've certainly had to do my fair share of it. If you're going to be an actress or a model, it's usually part of the package."
Men don't have to worry about the issue though because, well, their privates don't make pleasant viewing, she says.
Your Say
    Admittedly at the complete other end of the scale - a study done recently (using eye tracking) showed that when watching pornography, men tend to look at the woman's face more t...

"We don't want to see willies because they're ugly," Ward says.
"We want to see breasts because they're beautiful."
Ward says she has never appeared fully nude in three decades working in film and television, adding that it was "a constant battle with directors" over taking all her clothes off.
But now, at 51, a candid Ward said: "I wish I had. I was just a prudish English girl and I wish I had been less prudish about it really. I don't think we have a hell of a lot to be serious about at this point.
"I think that comes with a body of work but to start with it is an incredibly competitive business."
Interactive  Is this a double standard? What do you think? Tell us
Ward was speaking ahead of yesterday's world premiere at the Sydney Film Festival of her feature film Beautiful Kate, which will screen across Australia from August 6.
The film is a mystery drama exploring "adolescent sexuality and the expression of beauty".
However, there was no risk of Ward stripping off for this one.
The actress was on the other side of the camera - writing and directing the film, which stars her husband Bryan Brown, Rachel Griffiths, Ben Mendelsohn, Sophie Lowe and Maeve Dermody. Ward said nudity should not be a big issue for an actress.
"You're in a movie because you're appealing and because you represent the aspiration, the fantasy, the ideal," she said.
"I resisted that but, when you're in the business, when you're making a film, one doesn't have to take it all too seriously. We're not curing cancer . . . it's entertainment. We want to get people into theatres."
For young actress Dermody, 23, the decision to appear fully nude for the first time in Beautiful Kate was a hard one, but working with a female director made it easier.
"It was the first time I'd done it," said Dermody, hailed as one of Australia's brightest acting hopefuls. "Previously I'd been quite stubborn about sex scenes, standing my ground with it a bit more.
"But now I'm more fearful about the film being shown than the actual shooting of it, to be honest."
Ward's daughter, Matilda Brown, is the same age and is also an actress.
"It is something my daughter is having to think about as an actress," Ward said.
"She is thinking about this thing at the moment where she's done a photograph in a bra, she's in her underwear."



Naked Truth About Heidi Montag's Playboy Pictures
Heidi Montag Playboy"I'm excited that Heidi (Montag) will join the long list of Playboy cover girls! I hope she enjoyed the shoot and feels as liberated as I did! Good luck!" - Playboy veteran and ex-Danity Kane singer Aubrey O'Day wishes Heidi Montag luck with her upcoming Playboy pictorial.
For those of you looking forward to seeing pictures of Heidi Montag naked in Playboy Magazine, don't get your hopes up. Unlike O'Day who went fully topless for her Playboy pictures, sources say Montag will keep her private bits covered up.
Despite an insider telling People last week that, "There is nudity. It's tasteful — she had a lot of fun with it," the latest word is that "there will be no real nudity" in the spread.
Originally famous as a castmember on 'The Hills,' Heidi and husband Spencer Pratt most recently appeared, quit, appeared again and quit again on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'




Google could take a lesson from Bing on porn

Categories: Education Technology
Tags: Google Inc., Content Management, Security, Enterprise Software, Software, Christopher Dawson
There…I've said it. I'm filled with self-loathing for saying it, but Bing's new approach (and the speed with which they rolled it out) is a model for easy avenues to block objectionable content. How many schools/libraries block the entire images.google.com domain because their content filtering isn't sophisticated enough to keep kids from seeing thumbnails they really shouldn't see? Bing, on the other hand, now makes it a no-brainer to keep this content out of their search engine, regardless of the security settings.
As pointed out on CNet and the Bing Blog,
    irst, potentially explicit images and video content will now be coming from a separate single domain, explicit.bing.net. This is invisible to the end customer, but allows for filtering of that content by domain which makes it much easier for customers at all levels to block this content regardless of what the SafeSearch settings might be…
    …In addition, we will begin returning source url information in the query string for images and video content so that companies who already use this method of filtering will be able to catch explicit content on Bing along with everything else they are already blocking for their customers.
You don't get much easier than that. Block explicit.bing.net and keep doing what you're doing blocking adult websites. It's a no-brainer. Sure, some content filters handle Google's thumbnails well, but the average content filter included with a home router or present in many schools simply isn't that sophisticated.
Don't get me wrong: I'm not going to be blocking Google and making my users (or my kids) use Bing anytime soon. I'm a big ol' Google fan and I think it's an important tool to teach kids to use responsibly and well. We're inches from rolling out Google Apps for Education in our district, so the GOOG isn't going anywhere. However, this utterly straight-forward approach to making Bing kid/teacher/parent/school/library-friendly is a welcome bit of no-nonsense, fix-the-customer's-problems goodness from a company not that well-known for fixing customer problems in a timely manner.




Porn Actress Pens Book, Aims at Mainstream
Jun. 15--Sunset Thomas has appeared in more than 300 adult films, worked at the Bunny Ranch brothel in Nevada and been photographed for stacks of magazines. She's used those experiences to write a fiction novel, "Anatomy of an Adult Film" ($20, World Audience Inc.), which tells the story of a veteran star and an energetic novice.
Thomas, 37, is taking steps to move into a more mainstream career. The book, available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, is a major part of that transition.
She also writes about boxing for doghouseboxing.com; provides sex advice in Esquire magazine; will launch the online reality show "Sin City Mom" in the next few days; and is a regular guest on talk shows ranging from "The O'Reilly Factor" to "Chelsea Lately."
She talked about the novel and her career on a book tour stop in Fresno on Monday:
Question: Why did you decide to write a book?
Answer: The one thing I do like about the book is that I get to explain the business in a series of sexy stories. What made me decide to write a book like this is when I travel, everyone is always asking me what it's like to be a porn star. I made it fiction so I didn't have to worry about going into certain details about certain people. It is different [from] the autobiographies out there by other porn stars. I wanted to write something different that would be entertaining.
Do you have a routine to writing?
I try to write early in the morning or late afternoon once I get everything settled down in the house.
The book is a big step to ending your adult film career after 18 years. Is that a long time to be in the business?
Yes. Most porn stars only last three or four years. I have been making movies for so many years, I now want to focus on my book, I want to start directing movies and doing the reality show.
Has the recession hurt the adult industry?
I think the Internet has hurt it more. The sales aren't as good in stores because there is so much material online.
What kind of health concerns did you have working in the adult industry?
We all have to get tested every month. And we were tested weekly at the brothel.
How did appearing on HBO's "Cathouse" affect your career?
I have people in their 70s come up to me, and they have never seen a porno movie, and will say, "You're that girl from HBO." They think of me as a TV star.
Why do the reality show?
It is a way to show people we live normal lives, too. I deal with everything from school to soccer games with my three children. And then you also get to see the glamour side. I think it will open people's eyes to what we do.
You have worked in businesses that offend some people. How do you respond to those critics?
I have never had a lot of people come up to me to complain. Most people have treated me with respect. I love what I do. I am not ashamed of it. I tell anyone who wants to get in this business to get into it because you love it. It is not just about the money. It is about enjoying what you do.

Google Improves Gmail For Android, iPhone
The search giant is trying to make the mobile version similar to the desktop experience with auto-complete and keyboard shortcuts.

Google (NSDQ: GOOG) continues to fine-tune its mobile Gmail, and the search giant added a few ways for iPhone and Android users to get through their e-mails quickly.
The first addition is faster address auto-completion, which means typing the first few letters of a contact's name or e-mail address will lead to a pop-up of possible contacts. The process is expected to be similar to the desktop version, and it works by reusing previously fetched matches in subsequent searches.
T-Mobile G-1 features Android OS, an intuitive touchscreen, and QWERTY keyboard, plus popular Google products
The second improvement affects Android handsets with a physical keyboard like the T-Mobile G1.
"Now you can use all those familiar Gmail keyboard shortcuts to quickly move through your inbox," Google wrote in its mobile blog. "For example, if you're reading an e-mail you can press 'u' to return to the inbox or 'n' to move to the next conversation."
Google brought a new version of Gmail to Android and the iPhone in April, and it completely redesigned the underlying code of the mobile version. The search company promises to continue to tweak the mobile version by incorporating elements from the desktop version.
The simultaneous release of the new features could be a slight shift in Google's mobile strategy, as it has generally released new apps for the iPhone first because it has a larger installed base than Android, and iPhone users tend to use the mobile Web more than other smartphone users. Android is expected to come on strong in the second half of the year, though, as Google expects up to 18 smartphones to be released from the likes of Motorola (NYSE: MOT), Samsung, HTC, and other manufacturers.



Facebook borrows from Twitter's playbook
Heads up, Facebook-users: in just a few hours (midnight in your local time zone), you'll have the chance to choose a user name and corresponding URL for your profile.
The social networking giant hopes the offer will have its nearly-200 million users staying home on a Friday night, boosting traffic and helping Facebook gain a new edge in its mind-share battle with rival Twitter.
As it turns out, the user name gambit isn't attracting much buzz among most Facebook subscribers, folks who use the social networking site to stay in touch with a close circle of friends and families. But for marketers and other self-promoters, the new program is a chance to turn Facebook into a "branded space" in advertising parlance. (More in a moment on whether this will rankle everyday users of the service.)
Indeed, says Facebook spokesperson Larry Yu, requests from marketers prompted the new offering. "Other services," he explains, "have a lot of people promoting themselves and we are offering this in case there are people on Facebook who want to do that."
Take MySpace. In 2005, just before being acquired by News Corporation (NWS, Fortune 500), MySpace moved from assigning numbers to user profiles to giving users branded urls:
The change made the site Ground Zero for entertainment companies and artists to design their own pages and post their work, a market MySpace still dominates even as its overall share of social networking falls.
Twitter's model
More threatening to Facebook, perhaps, is Twitter, the microblogging service where users post 140-character items to those strangers -- and friends -- who sign up to "follow them." The one-to-many model is ideal for companies in all industries who want to promote their brand, and for individuals who want to publicize their work: Witness the recent race between Ashton Kutcher and CNN to reach one million followers. (Kutcher won).
Though advertisers still clamor for space on Facebook, there's not yet an equivalent phenomenon of brands becoming successful as "users" with their own profiles. Admits Yu: "others have been ahead here."
Mike More of online video network Nabbr.com is one marketer who thinks Facebook has lagged. "This [new offer] is Facebook waking up and trying to get more marketing friendly, because it's currently not a very effective platform for marketers," More says. "It's very closed off, it's hard to reach a large audience in a short time as most brands are looking to do."
On Twitter, where URLs reflect user names, and a one-to-many megaphone is already the norm, content gets out fast and is easy for fans to locate in a Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) search. That search-engine optimization is one thing Facebook hopes to capture by changing its ways.
Benjamin Weisman, Digital Director for UK-based ad shop Iris, sees the new offering as "a little bit of an acknowledgement of Twitter," and an attempt to preempt the rival's momentum. "Facebook is using the opportunity to show that Twitter isn't the only one doing this, to catch up to MySpace, to say 'We offer this too; we're here, we hear you and we don't let moments pass us by.'" But, Weisman cautions, many casual users will balk at turning their profiles into "public-facing entities."
College students and recent grads who log on to share photos and play interactive games with personal friends aren't concerned about search engine optimization. In fact, speculates Jun Li, who'll be a senior at Harvard this fall, they may prefer, on privacy grounds, to have their profiles housed at a hard-to-find numerical link.
"When you search on Google for my name," she says, "my profile is on the third or fourth page of links. With this [change] it would turn up higher and I wouldn't want it to." With its history of battling users over privacy, Facebook would do well to take note of her concerns.
Then again, even as they opt out of user names, Li and her peers are creating buzz, by chatting, blogging, even tweeting, about the offer. What more could Facebook want? To top of page
Facebook is king but Twitter makes waves




Microsoft to give away anti-virus
No date has yet been given for when the free software will launch
Microsoft is poised to start giving away security software.
The company is reportedly trialling free anti-virus software internally and said the beta version would be released "soon".
Called Morro, the software will tackle viruses but lack the broader range of utilities, such as parental locks, found in paid-for security suites.
Morro will be Microsoft's second venture in the highly competitive security market.
Microsoft's first attempt revolved around the Windows Live OneCare service that did not succeed in turning many customers away from rivals such as Symantec and McAfee.
Microsoft plans to discontinue Live OneCare once the Morro software is ready.
No specific date has been given for when Morro will be released, but in the past Microsoft has said it would be out by the end of 2009 at the latest.
Microsoft said Morro would tackle viruses, spyware, rootkits and trojans.
Janice Chaffin, Symantec's president of consumer products, said customers wanted more than just basic protection.
"A full internet security suite is what consumers require today to stay fully protected," she said.
Security software for home PCs typically cost around £30-40 and often allow users to install protections on more than one computer.
Other companies, such as AVG and Alwil already produce and distribute free anti-virus products.
Fake help
In its latest update, Microsoft added code that detects and deletes the widespread Internet Antivirus Pro family of fake security software programs.
Such programs, also known as scareware, have been proving more popular with hi-tech criminals in recent months.
The Anti-Phishing Working Group estimated that there were 9,287 bogus anti-malware program in circulation in December 2008 - a rise of 225% since January 2008.
The US government has moved to shut down some companies peddling the programs that falsely claim to find malicious software on PCs and then charge for the non-existent threats to be removed.
In addition, the Internet Antivirus Pro software displays fake Windows security messages to try and trick people into thinking the product is legitimate. The software also contains a password stealer that watches where people go online and grabs login data.





Britney Spears: Oops! She did it again TLC Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin Celebrate 10th Anniversary Megan Fox Might Play "Buffy" in New Movie Paris Hilton Scores With Soccer Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo Hookup
Britney Spears: Oops! She did it again TLC Jon & Kate Plus 8 Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin Celebrate 10th Anniversary Megan Fox Might Play "Buffy" in New Movie Paris Hilton Scores With Soccer Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo Hookup

Britney Spears: Oops! She did it again
The troubled singer's comeback tour will gross $100m. But is it a return to form or just another blip on her downward spiral?
Britney has divorced, lost custody of her children and suffered a very public breakdown — prompting fears that her latest renaissance is just a flash in the panOnce upon a time — it seems like an age ago — a 16-year-old dancer from backwoods Louisiana was lucky enough to record a serviceable piece of Swedish pop, make a saucy video for it sporting a sexed-up school uniform and watch the resulting confection, Baby One More Time, shoot to the top of the charts across the Western world.
That was the Britney Spears of then — the young, not-so-innocent, blond pop idol adored by teens and pre-teens alike. She might have had only a so-so voice, but she was certainly blessed with all the right moves.
Over the next few years, as she hit the celebrity stratosphere with her follow-up hits Oops! I Did It Again and Toxic, Britney's mother insisted with a straight face that she was still a virgin and also insisted, with an even straighter face, in spite of ample photographic evidence to the contrary, that she had never, ever had breast implants.
Such were the innocent days of the late-1990s — a time when America still imagined it could rule the world in peace and prosperity and people still believed you could earn millions of dollars on the internet.
Last year, after two broken marriages — one farcical, the other merely disastrous — two children and a career lacking its former direction, Britney, now 27, had become a poster-child for celebrity dysfunction and slow-motion, paparazzi-hounded self-destructiveness.
But now, less than nine months on, while she is very much not a virgin any more, she finally seems to have rediscovered the musical smarts that made her the brightest star in pop's firmament.
Her current tour — The Circus Starring: Britney Spears, which arrives at the O2 arena in Dublin on Friday — has, to date, managed to avoid the very public fights with the Press, with her mother, with child-safety advocates alarmed by her mothering technique, and with her ex-husband Kevin Federline. By the time the 60-date world tour ends it will have grossed more than $100 million.
But 2008 was a very different story as she suffered an apocalyptic — and very public — breakdown involving a suicide attempt, losing the custody of her children Sean Preston (3) and Jayden James (2), shaving off her hair and a bizarre incident in which she attacked a car with her umbrella. She was finally institutionalised and placed on psychiatric lockdown.
Gradually, piece by piece, she has spent the last year rebuilding her shattered life and her career. She has been on holiday — albeit heavily supervised — with Sean Preston and Jayden James, though she has still to regain custody. There is even another boyfriend on the scene, Jason Trawick, who doubles as her agent.
But her father Jamie Spears remains in complete control of her career as he has been since he was appointed her legal guardian at her lowest ebb. She is under round-the-clock supervision. Her phonecalls and texts are monitored.
If it is hard to reconcile this image with the uber-confident Spears currently strutting the world's superdomes clad in ringmaster costume, her trademark blonde locks reinstated, it may be because she was never as easy to categorise as, say, Paris Hilton or Anna Nicole Smith, who appeared to possess no discernible talent whatsoever.
Spears was born in 1981 in Kentwood, Louisiana, a small town near the Mississippi that still boasts on its website about being "the home of Britney Spears".
Her southern Baptist parents encouraged her talent for gymnastics, and by the age of eight she was already auditioning for Disney's The New Mickey Mouse Club. She was considered too young for that, but a producer on the show arranged for her to attend summer classes at New York's Professional Performing Arts School.
Three years later, she made it on to The New Mickey Mouse Club at last, where she mingled with the likes of Christina Aguilera, future boyfriend Justin Timberlake and Joshua Chasez, who would go on with Timberlake to form part of *NSync.
This was the crowd that was to form the heart of her success. Although she went back to Louisiana for high school for a while, she ended up being contacted by Max Martin, a Swedish songwriter and pop producer who also pioneered the careers of *NSync, Backstreet Boys and, later, the first winner of American Idol, Kelly Clarkson. It was Martin who wrote Baby One More Time and came up with her biggest hit, Oops! I Did It Again. The songs were solid, which perhaps accounts for their success, but the production on Britney's performance was overblown, to put it mildly.
Still, Britney ran with it, becoming the eighth best-selling female artist in American recording history and shifting more than 75 million albums.
In 2001, she signed a lucrative contract with Pepsi to be its poster child. Hollywood offered her a movie (Crossroads, which was a thinly disguised vehicle for all her material). Her mistake, though, was to think she could branch out on her own, without the help of those who made her a star. She broke with Max Martin for her fourth album, In the Zone, and also broke up with Timberlake.
The results were mixed at best. Even a much-publicised lesbian kiss with Madonna at the MTV Music Video Awards could not disguise the fact that her sales were starting to drop off.
Her first single off the album, Toxic, was a hit, but the reviews in the trade Press were considerably less enthusiastic. From there, it just got more and more sordid.
In September 2003, six months after the US invasion of Iraq, she invited widespread ridicule when she told a television interview: "Honestly, I think we should just trust our president in every decision he makes and should just support that, you know, and be faithful in what happens."
A few months later, Spears went on a bender in Las Vegas with her childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander and ended up marrying him. Less than four days later, she obtained an annulment.
Within a few months, Spears was engaged to Federline, a dancer and rap singer in her touring band, even though Federline's most-recent girlfriend was expecting his second child.
Spears's first child arrived in September 2005, a second less than a year later. Two months after that, she filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences".
And then the real tabloid hell began: passing out while hosting a New Year's celebration in a Las Vegas nightclub, entering one drug rehab facility and then another, shaving her head, then wearing an assortment of extensions and wigs that caught the gossip-mongers' less-than-flattering attentions.
So does Britney's current whipcracking reincarnation mark a permanent return to form — or is it just another staging post on her inexorable decline?
Theoretically, her age — she is still six months shy of her 28th birthday — is her biggest asset, presumably giving her the luxury of time to sort herself out.
The painful truth is she was a pin-up model for a hit-making machine that used her and then spat her out when it no longer wanted her.
If she can grasp that concept and live with it — and avoid battering cars with her umbrella — she might finally have a chance at a normal life.
The Circus Starring: Britney Spears plays Dublin's O2 arena on Friday and Saturday.

Megan Fox Might Play "Buffy" in New Movie
Megan Fox has been the subject of quite a few casting rumors as of late. Two weeks ago she denied reports that she would be playing Wonder Woman, and reportedly passed on playing Lara Croft. Now Fox is reportedly under consideration to play the title role of Buffy Summers in the recently announced big screen relaunch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
The new movie won't involve Joss Whedon or be tied to either the 1992 film or TV series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.
IGN.com contacted the film's producer, Roy Lee, about the rumors. He said:
    "The rumors of Megan Fox being involved with Buffy are just rumors. As with any film project with a female lead under the age of 30, Megan is the actress that most studios want so it is no surprise her name is mentioned. While I think she would be great for our project, we are still in the early stages of developing the script."
Since when has Megan Fox become the must-have actress for new films? Her publicist must be working overtime.


TLC  Jon & Kate Plus 8 Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin Celebrate 10th Anniversary

Though Jon and Kate Gosselin admit they've been struggling with their marriage under the media microscope, the two mark their 10th wedding anniversary Friday.
After meeting in 1997 at a picnic, Jon and Kate tied the knot in a friend's backyard in Wyomissing, Pa., on June 12, 1999. As shown on the couple's TLC show, Jon & Kate Plus 8, they honeymooned in Disney World and then immediately started working on a family.
Twins Cara and Mady arrived in October 2000 and the couple started fertility treatments soon afterward in hopes of having a third child. They instead got six more; their sextuplets were born in 2004. Two years later, the family became the subject of a TLC special, which, of course, spawned their series.
As seen on Jon & Kate last season, the Gosselins renewed their vows in August in Hawaii, where they originally wanted to get married.
So how will Jon and Kate celebrate the big 1-0? That remains to be seen (literally, on the show), but if the past few episodes and weeks have been any indication, they may not be together. Jon went to Utah to snowboard on Kate's birthday in March and spent Memorial Day weekend in New York, while his wife and children headed to North Carolina.

Paris Hilton Scores With Soccer Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo Hookup

Champagne-swilling Cristiano Ronaldo and Paris Hilton got down and dirty as they teamed up to celebrate the soccer ace's $131 million transfer.
The winking winger, 24, kissed and cuddled the 28-year-old socialite in a Hollywood club before they headed to her sister's home.
Ronaldo's move from Manchester United to Real Madrid sets a new world record.
A clubber who witnessed their frolicking said: "They were sucking each other's faces off like their plane was going down.
"At one point Ronaldo had a bottle between his legs and Paris was stroking it. It was very racy."
After sharing steamy cuddles and expensive champagne for two hours, Paris headed to sister Nicky's home in the Hollywood Hills at 2.05 a.m.
Ronaldo, 24, joined her there an hour later after a brief stopover at his hotel.
He left at 5 a.m. with a broad grin plastered across his face.





Kuznetsova beats Safina for French title Champion Ivanovic Loses to Azarenka in French Open Maria Sharapova beats Yanina Wickmayer to reach Aegon semis

PARIS — The crowd at the French Open final on Saturday had a sense of what might be coming when Dinara Safina's first serve hit the middle of the net traveling at a shockingly low speed.
There was a collective gasp at the sight of the world's top player as she fell apart.
Safina then bounced the ball and proceeded to hit the top of the net with her second serve, which ricocheted long for a double fault, leaving her with another missed opportunity in a Grand Slam final.
Safina had tried and failed twice before, losing last year's French Open final to Ana Ivanovic and this year's Australian Open final to Serena Williams. She did not win a set in either match.
But this time, Safina arrived in Paris as the game's new No. 1 player and the tournament's No. 1 seed. This time, she arrived having been the most consistent and successful woman on clay all spring. This time, she roared through her first four matches in an overwhelming fashion.
In the final, though, she was overwhelmed by 23-year-old Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova. The No. 7 seed won 6-4, 6-2 in 1 hour 13 minutes — a match that generated precious little suspense down the stretch.
"I've been waiting for this moment for a very long time," Kuznetsova said.
Kuznetsova is a powerhouse athlete with a complete set of tennis skills and an affinity for clay, but her mental game has been her weak point.
She first rose to prominence as Martina Navratilova's young, handpicked doubles partner, then won the 2004 U.S. Open in singles at age 19 and later rose to a career high of No. 2 in the rankings in 2007. But for all her abundant talent, she has not been able, until now, to produce another big tennis bang.
She lost in the final at Roland Garros in 2006 against Justine Henin and was beaten by Henin in the final of the 2007 U.S. Open. Last season, which looked like a potentially big year, fizzled with a series of close losses. But with plenty of help from the edgy and ultimately distraught Safina, Kuznetsova can no longer be accused of being a one-Slam wonder.
With Kuznetsova playing smooth-flowing, clear-headed tennis, this anticlimax was largely about Safina, whose brother Marat Safin is a former U.S. Open and Australian Open champion.
"The pressure I put on myself because I really wanted to win," Safina said afterward, her eyes red from crying. "I just didn't handle it."


Champion Ivanovic Loses to Azarenka in French Open

Defending champion Ana Ivanovic of Serbia lost to Victoria Azarenka in the fourth round of tennis's French Open in Paris.
Belarussia's Azarenka beat Ivanovic 6-2, 6-3. Ivanovic, a former top-ranked player, has not advanced past the fourth round of a major since she won Roland Garros last year.
Top-ranked Dinara Safina advanced to the quarterfinals by defeating local favorite Aravane Rezai in straight sets.
Russia's Safina won 6-1, 6-0, to move into the last eight, and has lost only five games in four matches in Paris. Rezai, ranked 57th, was trying to be the first French woman to advance past the fourth round since 2005, when Mary Pierce was runner- up.
"I'm just surprised that it's really like five games that I lost before getting into the quarters," Safina said to reporters. "It's not a bad feeling, and I hope if I continue like this I can go a long way."
Twentieth-seeded Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova won 6-2, 6-4 over Agnes Szavay, who upset Venus Williams two days ago.
In the men's event, Rafael Nadal's bid for a record fifth straight French Open title ended in the fourth round against Robin Soderling of Sweden.
Soderling beat the top-ranked Spaniard 6-2, 6-7 (2-7), 6-4, 7-6 (7-2).
No. 3 seed Andy Murray won in straight sets over 13th- seeded Marin Cilic to advance to the quarterfinals for the first time. Murray beat the Croatian 7-5, 7-6 (7-4), 6-1. He's the first British man to reach the quarterfinals since Tim Henman in 2004.
Chile's Fernando Gonzalez, seeded 12th, defeated Victor Hanescu 6-2, 6-4, 6-2.




Maria Sharapova beats Yanina Wickmayer to reach Aegon semis

BIRMINGHAM, England — Maria Sharapova reached her first semifinal in more than a year Friday after beating Yanina Wickmayer 6-1, 2-6, 6-3 at the Aegon Classic.
The former top-ranked Russian struggled with her serve in the second set, but regained her stride in the decider to break her 19-year-old opponent twice for a 5-1 lead.
Sharapova has remodelled her serve to protect her shoulder, which required surgery last year and sidelined the Russian for nearly nine months, and she committed 11 double faults in the match.
"I kind of lost the momentum and made more errors than I would have preferred, and she gained confidence from that," Sharapova said. "When you give her time she plays very aggressively, and once she had broken me she kept swinging away and came up with some great shots."
Sharapova next plays Li Na, the former Wimbledon quarter-finalist from China who beat Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland 6-3, 7-6(3).
The other semifinal will pit Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia against Sania Mirza of India.
Mirza reached only her second semifinal in two years with a 6-1, 7-6 (4) win over Hungary's Melinda Czink, while Rybarikova beat Urszula Radwanska of Poland 6-3, 6-3.
Mirza recently recovered from a career-threatening wrist injury, and was encouraged by her performances in Birmingham.
"I struggled last week and I am just happy to be back. I'm happy to be competing and winning some matches," Mirza said. "The wrist is healed which is the biggest positive out of this."





Microsoft Browser Offer Facebook Web addresses Making Money Off Twitter YouTube and MySpace Generation
Microsoft Browser Offer Fails to Impress Europe
BERLIN — European regulators, wary of repeating an earlier mistake, signaled this week that Microsoft's offer to sell a browserless Windows system on the Continent did not go far enough.
The decision has left some antitrust lawyers in Brussels scratching their heads.
"Microsoft is offering to sell Windows in Europe without their own browser — you would think this is what the commission wants," said Alec Burnside, a competition lawyer at Linklaters in Brussels. "You would expect them to say 'Thank you' and close the case."
Microsoft made an offer Thursday to sell Windows in Europe without their own browser, the latest move in a case that was initiated in December 2007 based on a complaint by Opera, a Norwegian browser maker.
But the commission, in a statement, dismissed the offer, saying the move would not further its goal of promoting browsers that compete with Internet Explorer.
Instead, Microsoft and European authorities appear on course for another legal collision over the software maker's bundling of major applications into Windows, which, according to the research firm Gartner, runs more than 95 percent of computers in the world.
One reason for the quick rejection, according to competition lawyers in Brussels and a commission spokesman, is that the European Commission did not want to repeat a mistake of the first Microsoft case, when it ordered the software maker in 2004 to sell a version of Windows in Europe without its media player.
Microsoft responded by selling its so-called N version of Windows for the same price as its full version, and consumers rejected the stripped-down system. The remedy also did not significantly improve the lot of competing media players. Microsoft said it sold only a few thousand copies of the N version.
This time, the commission has indicated it may want Microsoft to distribute Windows with competing Web browsers preinstalled and then allow retailers and computer makers to decide from a "ballot screen" menu which browsers to install. About 95 percent of computer operating systems are sold preinstalled on new computers.
"Our focus in this case is that consumers should effectively have the chance to choose from an array of browsers," a commission spokesman, Jonathan Todd, said. "The remedy with the 'N' version software didn't work."
In hindsight, Mr. Todd said the commission should have required Microsoft to sell only a Windows version in Europe without a media player and not allowed the parallel sale of the full version.
In Europe, Microsoft is offering to sell a browserless "E" version of Windows 7, its latest operating system version, which is scheduled to be introduced worldwide Oct. 22. "This means that computer manufacturers and users will be free to install Internet Explorer on Windows 7, or not, as they prefer," wrote Dave Heiner, the Microsoft deputy general counsel who disclosed the offer, in the company's blog.
Denis Walbroeck, a competition lawyer at Ashurst in Brussels, said the commission's rejection indicated it was not looking to settle quickly with Microsoft.
"I am struggling to understand the commission's behavior here," Mr. Walbroeck said. "It appears this is headed to a big decision from the commission, a big fine and perhaps a lengthy appeal."
Since the complaint was initially filed, many of Microsoft's biggest commercial rivals — Sun Microsystems, Google, Nokia and others — have signed on to the case as legal adversaries.
Microsoft canceled the only hearing scheduled in the case, scheduled for early June, after complaining that many European antitrust officials who could attend the hearing as observers were unable to do so because of a competing conference in Switzerland.
The commission is under no timetable to release its ruling in the browser case, but in the past, it has publicized crucial decisions, fines and sanctions before leaving for its summer break in late July.


Facebook to offer personalized Web addresses
 Like concert goers lining up for a coveted ticket, Facebook users are queuing up to claim their digital turf.
Late Friday and early Saturday, the world's largest social-networking site was to begin offering its 200 million users the chance to claim a personalized Web address on a first-come, first-served basis.
The move will allow them to create a distinct online address for their personal profile with a name of their choosing, such as Facebook.com/jonswartz. It would also let them use their Facebook page like a personal home page, as a vast majority of members of rival MySpace already do.
The late-night change (12:01 a.m. Saturday ET) had some anxious Facebook members changing their Friday night plans to grab their name before someone else did.
"As a sole proprietor, it is very important to me," says Scott Roewer, a professional organizer in Washington, D.C., who uses Facebook and Twitter to promote his business. "I have no choice but to sign up at midnight."
Facebook member Bryan Christmas, 27, wanted to be sure he had Internet access at 9:01 p.m. in San Francisco, altering his weekend plans for a few precious minutes.
The intent of so-called "vanity URLs" is to make it easier to find profiles through Web searches, says Facebook. Currently, Facebook profiles contain a sequence of numbers.
But the change could lead to a virtual land grab. Once someone snags a name, for example, no one else can use it. And after that name is confirmed, it cannot be changed.
The lure of "vanity URLs" might lead, in some cases, to courtroom disputes over trademark rights, say legal experts.


Dude — Dell's Making Money Off Twitter!
It isn't much in the grand scheme of things, but Dell says it has made $3 million using Twitter.
It wasn't an overnight thing; Dell's been on Twitter for two years. But Dell blogger Stephanie Nelson says they've managed to steadily grow followers for their outlet store via @DellOutlet, earning $2 million via Twitter referrals for their "certified refurbs, scratch and dent and previously ordered new Dell products." They took in another $1 million from people who went from the outlet store to Dell proper for new stuff.
The account — unmistakeably commercial, no celebrities — now has 600k followers, "close to the top 50 most followed Twitter users according to TwitterCounter, sharing the stage with brands like @Zappos … , @JetBlue and @WholeFoods."
Their strategy? You won't need to write this down: "… by offering a mix of Twitter-exclusive offers, Dell Outlet deals and Outlet-specific updates and information."
Before Twitter, companies who wanted to reach out and touch someone risked being accused of digital assault — phone calls and e-mail spam would do as much damage as potential good to spread the word. But Twitter let's you speak all you want without pissing off anyone who doesn't want to listen, which makes it a marketing and sales tool that might have the nirvana potential to actually innocuously zero in a prime demographic. Even better: your biggest fans viral market for you, by re-tweeting to their followers.
For Dell, $3 million is almost a rounding error. The number-two PC maker has a market cap of $26 billion and cleared $290 million in the last quarter alone. But it isn't chump change, either, and cost them virtually nothing.


YouTube and MySpace Leaves "No Space" for a Generation
With the advent and popularity of MySpace and YouTube, kids are finding themselves with less space than ever, however virtual they think it may be.
As they spend hours uploading photos and recording each personal indiscretion, this savvy techno-baby generation will one day find they have lost the only real space that ever mattered . . . personal space without continual voyeurism.
As a society, we have almost by default decided "self-esteem" is the most important attribute for our children to have, far surpassing the ancient adage of having a good, solid character for its own worth.
Today, children are taught they must feel great about themselves first and foremost, many psychologists and self-proclaimed experts preach, whether they are doing anything worthwhile or not.
Self esteem didn't come simply by birthright, or as a result of filming a YouTube video partying with friends, or designing websites devoted to the most important person in the universe-- yourself.
Rather, one gains respect, strength of character and earned wisdom which may result in self-esteem, but then again, this should not be the ultimate goal for children or adults to ensure they may become citizens with value and integrity.
With thousands of teens spending time writing about how they feel, as opposed to how others feel or act, or how they may contribute or even change the world they live in, we have allowed much of a generation to grow up with visceral apathy as an accepted trait, which is nothing to feel esteemed about.
Far from the 1960's and 70's when college students fought police in the streets against the war and for civil rights, and when young women burned their bras rather than receiving boob jobs as graduation presents, this generation is at a big loss, and many of us parents have become the biggest cohorts and supporters, along with Madison Avenue and techno babysitters to blame.
It's so much easier to let a kid live in their own room where you might not see them for hours, with their loss of soul buried in their computer, digital camera, IPOD and cell phone at hand that you have provided. You know you have. And the price is far larger than any financial debt you may have accumulated
There can hardly be time or inclination left for embroiled discussions about anything if you're never even in the same room together. The classic teenage words "You just don't understand" aren't even said, because barely anything is.
I can remember after eating dinner at the table each night with my family when my father shouted out for us to be quiet so we could hear Walter Cronkite give us the latest news about the Vietnam War or the Civil Rights Movement, or Nixon's resignation speech, or God Forbid, even The Dick Cavett show and Masterpiece Theater.
I can also remember intellectual discussions with my father and close friends-- endless debate that often lasted into the wee hours of dawn about philosophy, art, culture and politics.
There are many moral character wounds that arise with this new infantile and selfish identification, but even more precarious is the fact that each time a teen shares with millions of fellow internet icons their most personal thoughts, including images that would shock even the most progressive parents; they are unaware how this might play out in their future.
This is what makes teenagers innocent and enviable on one hand, while the most dangerous species on the other. By nature, they have no sense of mortality. Rather, they are about everything that is exciting and miraculous for the moment-- which for them is infinite.
Therefore, when they boast into cell phone cameras dramatizing each activity, including drunken escapades and endless verses of self-adulation, they are unaware one day they might just wish to hit the delete key, but once given birth in cyberspace, there is no such key or link.
Furthermore, to an adolescent today, the future is as un-virtual as it gets. And if you can't send it through cyberspace, then it isn't actually real.
Not all MySpace websites and emails are scurrilous. Some are simple playful diaries of the young and the restless. And to be fair, some sites document seemingly-sincere reflections of how they see themselves in a world they either don't understand or think they understand too well.
On the dark side, there are sites and videos that the word "exhibitionism" can't begin to describe. Blatant personal dramas are displayed with horrific stories that as a viewer you can only hope are fictional. Largely, narratives are not about any protest against or for societal issues, but simply ongoing hate and love letters to ones' self with self-aggrandizing.
By nature, teens want to be popular with instant gratification and fame constantly fleeting. Our modern society has obviously decided that celebrities are to be worshipped, especially if they are acting out of control.
Embarrassing photos and quotes will be recorded not just in a yearbook, but by anyone including adults with far from altruistic tendencies, who are out there in droves. Whatever is downloaded can be uploaded and can be on record forever.
What will happen when this generation hits their 30's and even their 20's? Will they feel humiliated or proud? Will there be an epidemic of lawsuits against My Space and YouTube when they become parents and claim to have been naive participants- demanding all past histrionics be deleted from the black hole of Cyberspace?
Most likely, there will be lawsuits claiming no responsibility, which ironically is what the web largely symbolizes. It is a virtual life more real for the user than the one often lived, and yet everything can be anonymous with no one to answer to and no one to blame, and yet there will a lot of blaming yet to come.
My Space is not about anyone's space at all, but rather about taking up the most crucial and valuable space of a generation.
It gives viable minds the winking nod that's its okay for them to take up as much space as they want virtually nothing at all, and takes space away that could be given to a productive and valuable life.
The generation of baby boomers and parents a bit younger, such as I, who watched a war unfold, unravel and become a nightmare may now be raising a generation of kids who may not know or care what is going on at all.
After all, if you are the universe and everything revolves around you, why should it matter whether the rest of the world is embroiled in any war of any scope?
This is not to say self-expression is unimportant, or that each generation has a swear-bound duty to forge its own path and to upset the generation before.
But a generation suckled on the need to be constantly seen and heard leaves a generation that is heard and seen but doesn't listen much.

Lindsay Lohan looking even thinner
Lindsay Lohan is more lean girl than Mean Girl as she totters around in LA.
The painfully thin 22-year-old couldn't hide her stick legs under a pair of flared trousers.
No wonder she needs that huge belt to stop everything from falling down.

LiLo lost shocking amounts of weight after her split with DJ Sam Ronson.
But now the couple are back together, maybe she'll start looking after herself again.
So let's hope that's full-fat cola in her hand.



Paris Hilton Wants Susan Boyle to Be Hot
Paris Hilton has offered up tips to "Britain's Got Talent" star Susan Boyle on how to be a celebrity. Sure. Susan Boyle just recently checked out of the hospital after suffering from exhaustion, no doubt brought on by millions of people judging her and obsessing over her appearance - so this is definitely the perfect time for Paris to publicly tell Susan Boyle what she needs to do to change.
Speaking to "Extra," Paris Hilton said on the topic of Susan Boyle, "I think Susan has an amazing voice, but she needs to work on the pose. I think she should come up with something new... since she's such a huge celebrity now... I suggest getting a stylist. She could look really hot if she just wore some pretty dresses."
Why doesn't Paris Hilton step up the plate and be Boyle's stylist? We think Paris Hilton and Susan Boyle would be a fascinating duo, and we like the idea of them hitting the LA shops together with Susan taking time to try on "some pretty dresses" for Hilton, who would then tell her, "That's hot," or, "That's not hot." This definitely has the makings of a great reality show...one that's definitely way better than "Paris Hilton in My New BFF." And once she's bonded with Susan Boyle, Paris Hilton won't even need to look any further for a BFF. We're sure Boyle will love to hit up the clubs with Paris, and Paris wouldn't have to worry about her backstabbing her, and trying to steal her boyfriends.
Hilton also spoke about being into Twitter, but not being able to use her own name for her Twitter page. Explained Paris, "Mine is at @BabyGirlParis. There's so many fakes... I tried to get ParisHilton but there are already 100 fake Paris Hiltons so I don't write the fake ones... I love Twitter." It's hard to be Paris Hilton.

Who knew a short bob could be so sexy? Photo: kimkardashian.celebuzz.com
Kim! We hardly recognized you!
At a recent photo shoot for O, The Oprah Magazine, Hollywood celeb hair stylist Ken Paves somehow managed to get Kim Kardashian's bountiful locks under a wig! (He is the master at faux hair -- you might remember he has a line of extensions with Jessica Simpson.)
This cropped bob with side-swept bangs is a big departure from Kim's usual va-va-voluminous long waves. It's way more conservative than her usual look, but since it's Kim, of course she makes it look sexy. And with a gorgeous face like that she can totally pull it off.
Do you think Kim sizzles in short hair?



Carrie Prejean says no to Playboy
Carrie Prejean is good at posing.
It turns out that my prediction about the former Miss California, Carrie Prejean, was pretty much correct. I thought she'd have a Playboy or Maxim spread by the end of the summer but in fact, she had already been offered one.
According to Prejean, Playboy put $140,000 on the table for some semi-nude pics and she turned it down.
Additionally, pageant officials also wanted Prejean to sign on to "I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" with Spencer and Heidi Pratt. According to Prejean, her refusal of the two jobs was what really got her crown taken away.
Yesterday, it was hard to believe that Prejean had more important things to do than show up for a few pageant events, but today, it is equally difficult to comprehend that she would turn down both of these high-profile offers.
However, if Prejean is telling the truth both yesterday and today, then it turns out that she is the kind of pageant winner that contests like Miss California should be breeding, and not firing. As a role model for few besides pre-teen girls, Prejean definitely did the right thing by refusing Playboy and maintaining her integrity.



Heidi Montag Poses For Playboy
'Hills' star will appear nude in September issue of magazine.
A few months ago, it had been rumored that "Hills" star Heidi Montag had posed for Playboy. And now comes official word that the former "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!" contestant will appear in the September issue of Playboy, according to People.
"There is nudity," a source told People. "It's tasteful — she had a lot of fun with it." When contacted by MTV News, a rep for Montag didn't have a statement regarding the news at press time.
Perhaps a Playboy spread will improve Heidi's ranking on Maxim's Hot 100 List, which had dropped from #36 in 2008 to #81 this year. "I'm gonna go to this Maxim party and have a serious conversation," Spencer Pratt told MTV News after learning of his wife's ranking. "I'm still horrified she's not even at #2."
Montag is the latest MTV star to find herself in the pages of Playboy. Earlier this year, "Making the Band" star and former Danity Kane member Aubrey O'Day posed for the magazine, saying that if felt empowering for her to do it.
"We constantly feel the need to not say this or not wear this or do that, and taking it all off and being nude is the most natural state that you can be in," O'Day told MTV News about the pictorial. "Being able to feel comfortable with that and show that sex can be a beautiful, comfortable — your sexuality can be a beautiful, comfortable thing — is going to be empowering for people.




Kelly Clarkson 'Defends Susan Boyle'

Kelly Clarkson has been empathizing with Britain's Got Talent runner up Susan Boyle.
Clarkson shot to fame in a similar fashion when she won American Idol in 2002. And while speaking on GMTV this week (June 8), she said that she could understand the pressure and stress that Susan Boyle has been facing since being in the public eye.
"I think every person who goes through this, right at the beginning it's very hard, it's hard on you. Because people can be vicious, I mean especially with her. I've heard nothing but horrible things people say about her," she said.
And as for advice for SuBo, Kelly suggests surrounding herself with positivity and ignoring the bad comments.
"It's one of those things. She's from a small town, I'm from a smaller town, it takes time to be like, 'Wow, some people are really mean.' But you have to focus on the people that are really positive around you."



Kara DioGuardi Poses for "Divine" PETA Ad

Kara DioGuardi hopes to be an idol — or better yet, an angel — for dogs.
The American Idol judge is the newest face of PETA's Angels for Animals campaign. She posed with her Chihuahua Tikki for a "divine" new ad.
Wearing angel wins, and with golden light emanating from her head, DioGuardi urges you to "Walk your dogs every day. Don't ever crate or chain them."
DioGuardi, who formed a charity that helps homeless and needy animals, says Tikki gave her newfound appreciation for animal welfare. "What I think people can do to help animals is just be sensitive to them — be aware when you see an animal in the street that's wounded or one that looks lost," she tells PETA. "They're really sweet, precious souls, and they need to be treated accordingly."
What do you think of DioGuardi's ad? Does it live up to Mickey Rourke's ballsy spay-and-neuter campaign?

LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
Allison Iraheta is the latest "American Idol" season eight contestant to sign with 19 Recordings and her recordings have been licensed to Jive Records.
Allison, who made it to the Top 4 of the recently completed season of the FOX reality competition, is scheduled to release her album in the fall. The vibrantly red-haired rocker was the youngest contestant ever, at 16, to make it into the Top 12. She had aspired to be on "American Idol" since its debut in 2002 when she was only 9.
Early in the season Allison Iraheta caught the attention of Idol judges, with Kara DioGuardi commenting, "keep your eye on that girl!" One of her defining moments on the show was her performance of the heart-wrenching Bonnie Raitt classic "I Can't Make You Love Me" in the Top 8 round of performances.
"I think I'm still in shock that this is happening — getting to record my first album and this whole awesome experience is a dream come true!" Allison said in a statement released to Access Hollywood.
This summer Allison will tour across the U.S with her fellow Season 8 finalists on the "American Idols Live! Tour 2009."






American Idol Kris Allen Flattered By Adam Lambert's Crush

"American Idol" winner Kris Allen doesn't mind the attention he receives from his millions of fans – including Adam Lambert.
In Rolling Stone's cover story with Adam this week, the rocker revealed he had a bit of a crush on his roommate, Kris, during their stay in the "Idol" mansion in LA.
"I was like, 'Oh, s***, they put me with the cute guy … Distracting!" said. "He's the one guy that I found attractive in the whole group on the show … totally my type – except that he has a wife."
And Kris' reaction to Adam's crush? "I'm flattered," Kris told People, "And think it's hilarious."
They might not be rooming together anymore, but Kris and Adam are readying to embark together on the 52-date "American Idol 2009 Summer Tour" beginning July 5 in Portland, Ore.

Is There Hope For Danny Gokey?
The likable 29-year-old singer from Milwaukee went far in the last season of 'American Idol,' with his powerful voice, tragic backstory and Robert Downey-esque good looks - but will Danny Gokey fall victim to the 3rd Place Curse of 'Idol?' Okay, "curse" might be an exaggeration, but after reading MTV's rundown of third-place finalists' post 'Idol' careers, we're a little concerned about our boy Gokey.
'Idol' winner Kris Allen, runner-up Adam Lambert and fourth-place finalist Allison Iraheta have been signed by a major label (a division of 19 Entertainment, the company behind 'Idol'), but Danny Gokey is still an independent entertainer, despite Danny's plans to release a "soulful" album with rhythm and blues beats.
'American Idol' 3rd-Place Careers
Third-place winners of the past seasons include Elliot Yamin, whose first single, 'Wait for You,' went platinum. The others have not fared as well, like first season contestant Nikki McKibbin and Vonzell Solomon of season four - and Yamin's sophomore album hasn't performed as well as the first.
On the other hand, if past seasons are an accurate indicator, Allison Iraheta may have much to look forward to. The recently-signed teenager is in good company, as super-successful recording artists Josh Gracin and Chris Daughtry were fellow fourth-place finishers.




Maria Sharapova stretches for a shot against Na Li in the fourth round of play at the French Open.
FRENCH OPEN
With Dinara Safina and Maria Sharapova, Russia is rising again
Maria Sharapova stretches for a shot against Na Li in the fourth round of play at the French Open.
Safina, ranked No. 1, and Sharapova, back on tour after a 10-month injury absence, will face each other in the French Open semifinals if both win Tuesday.
French Open at a glance
TODAY'S FEATURED MATCHES
(world rankings in parentheses)
Dinara Safina (1), Russia, vs. Victoria Azarenka (9), Belarus Safina has been so suddenly despotic this tournament that even though Azarenka is absolutely a budding starlet at 19, if she wins as many as three games -- as nobody else has against Safina -- she should get a standing ovation and a chanting of her name and maybe a small bouquet of flowers.
Maria Sharapova (102), Russia, vs. Dominika Cibulkova (19), Slovakia Sharapova has returned refreshed and eloquent and free from any expectations. It's almost as if now and then everybody should take 10 months off, have a little shoulder surgery and some good ol' rehab.
Andy Murray (3), Britain, vs. Fernando Gonzalez (12), Chile If Murray can pass this formidable roadblock and grace the semifinals on his least-favorite Grand Slam surface, it will be one phenomenal achievement and one more clear indication of his outright magnificence. One or two soccer fans might even notice.
Robin Soderling (25), Sweden, vs. Nikolay Davydenko (11), Russia As Soderling tries to back up his monumental toppling of Rafael Nadal, he might reveal whether he got that text he expected from Bjorn Borg, whose four straight French titles, a record he shares with Nadal, the Spaniard could not eclipse because of Soderling. Back in Borg's day, of course, people sent congratulations by yelling into a styrofoam cup with a long string attached.
A FRENCH MORSEL
Farewell to Serbia, for two years the official country of the French Open. For two straight, remarkable years, the Balkan nation somehow wrung from its mere 10 million citizens three of the eight men's and women's semifinalists at the French Open. But Novak Djokovic went out shockingly Saturday to Philipp Kohlschreiber, who couldn't last past the next round. And defending women's champion Ana Ivanovic left Sunday, hurried away by Azarenka. And after an 89-minute third set that took almost as long as a worthy French lunch, No. 5 Jelena Jankovic, too, has left, falling to 19-year-old Sorana Cirstea of Romania by 3-6, 6-0, 9-7.
ALSO MONDAY IN PARIS
Long, long ago, before noon Paris time Monday, Serena Williams looked very much like Serena Williams in barging through Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak, 6-1, 6-2, as Wozniak tensed up during her first match on the main Court Philippe Chatrier. . . . Svetlana Kuznetsova outlasted Agnieszka Radwanska, 6-4, 1-6, 6-1, to arrange a fine quarterfinal with Williams. . . . No. 5 Juan Martin Del Potro's commanding excellence showed as he shooed France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in four sets and prompted Tsonga to say, "I think he can win the tournament." . . . Australia has its first women's quarterfinalist in 21 years, Samantha Stosur, and victim Virginie Razzano of France said after Stosur's 6-1, 6-2 win, "She serves like a man. She has the best serve as a woman on the tour, except for Venus Williams and Serena Williams. But I'd say that she serves better than Serena or Venus, because she can do all types of serves." . . . Spain's Tommy Robredo quietly made his fourth French quarterfinal.
THE ENDANGERED AMERICAN MALES
And so the number finished its inexorable path from nine to zero when that eager clay-court student, Andy Roddick, was routed by Gael Monfils, 6-4, 6-2, 6-3, in the fourth round. It's over -- but wait. A beacon of hope shimmers in the distance. Two beacons, actually: the ever-reliable Bob and Mike Bryan from Camarillo have reached their eighth straight French Open quarterfinal -- with one title -- and proved again that if you're a desperate clay-court nation, it's shrewder to birth the hopefuls two at a time.
STAT OF THE DAY

Marisa Miller Boobs Kate Gosselin Strip Miss California USA Carrie Prejean David Letterman vs Sarah Palin Rihanna Subpoenaed

Marisa Miller says her boobs are 100 percent natural
 
Victoria's Secret model Marisa Miller has dismissed claims that she has undergone breast enhancement surgery, insisting she is "100 percent natural".
The stunning blonde, who bagged the top spot in Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list last year, revealed she is naturally voluptuous but works hard to maintain her curves.
"A lot of people believe that because I'm curvy - and blonde - I've had a boob job or some other kind of plastic surgery, which isn't true," the Sun quoted her as saying.
"I'm 100 percent natural. But I have to work hard to stay in shape. There's no magic pill. Believe me, if there was, I'd know about it," she added.
The Californian further explained: "Working out is not a luxury, it's a necessity. Surfing is my favourite workout."


Russian Porn Star Not Actually Selling WoW Gold With Her Boobs
Filed under: john funk, advertising, boobs, gold selling, porn, pornography, rmt, russia, wtf
UPDATE: Well, well, well. Turns out we might've been played. A joke, perhaps, and a ploy for publicity - but a hilarious joke nonetheless.
For amusement's sake, the original post is preserved below, because true or not, the mental image is absolutely hilarious. As is the idea that some poor girl now has her image plastered across gaming sites as a porn star. Hope her parents don't see it.
Russian adult actress Anna Morgan has signed a deal with a MMO gold-selling website to have its name and URL tattooed on her bazongas.
According to the press release, Ms. Morgan's DD-sized sweater puppies were purchased by a RMT site for the, shall we say, ample sum of $500,000. In return, the 19-year-old porn actress will have the site's name and URL tattooed on her melons, with the stipulation that it not be altered or removed for two years.
"A female porn star can easily appear in 50-100 films per year so this gives [the site] a lot of exposure for years to come," said Hunter Crowell, the company's media relations office. Well, "exposure" is certainly one way to call it.
Why this rather unorthodox method of advertising, though? Well, the company in question believes that "the link between porn, the internet, and online gaming is as strong as the pairing of peanut butter and jelly, making this an excellent fit." A snugly nestled fit, even. Well... uh, to be fair, I don't actually think I can argue with that. Okay, I concede the point.
Anna Morgan's emblazoned ta-tas will be featured in films produced by LA-based Top Studios, with whom she has just signed a multi-year contract. The inking will be done at Soul Tattoo Shop (wherever that is) on June 15.
A shame. She's ruining what looks like (to the porn-trained eye) a perfectly fine pair of hooters. Because, y'know, when I'm watching porn I totally want to be reminded that my Druid could really use a Traveler's Tundra Mammoth.



Bikini Babe Kate Gosselin Strip Show: Can She Save Jon and Kate Plus 8 From Divorce?
Is divorce in the air for Jon and Kate plus 8?  Before Jon and Kate Gosselin became tabloid stars they had a good thing going with their TLC show, grabbing free goodies from companies while using the products on TV.  Reports of affairs and all sorts of wild martial infidelity stories have now changed the show about eight cute little kids, into a mess of adult problems.

"Living well is supposedly the best revenge - but looking great isn't bad, either.  When Kate Gosselin took her eight kids on a beach vacation, she flaunted a bikini body that impressed some onlookers."
In 2006 Kate was treated to a tummy tuck by the husband of a fan of the show, Dr. Larry Glassman (now a family friend - his wife, Lauren, and daughter Hailey were spotted out with Jon during Kate's trip).  Kate called the surgery "a dream come true."





Lesbian affair with Miss California USA Carrie Prejean's mother
    * Carrie Prejean will keep her crown, says Donald Trump
    * Miss CA's parents: You're SO gay
    * Carrie Prejean goes to Washington to fight gay marriage
Controversy keeps following Miss California USA Carrie Prejean: Now a woman claims to have had a lesbian relationship with the "opposite marriage" crusader's mother.
Valerie Vetrano of Corona, Calif., told Star magazine she and Prejean's mother, Francine Coppola, "dated," and the relationship ended shortly before Carrie Prejean was in the Miss USA competition.
"I did date her," Vetrano, who is openly gay, told ABCNews.com. "I'm not going to deny it, but I'm not going to say anything else." Both Coppola and Prejean declined to comment on the ABC story.
Prejean's parents, whose messy divorce proceedings began in 1996 and lasted nearly a decade, accused each other of having homosexual relationships, according to a series of court documents made public on TMZ.com.
The beauty queen, 22, who came in second place in the Miss USA competition, made national headlines for her comments against same-sex unions during the pageant. She has since appeared in an anti-gay marriage PSA for the National Organization for Marriage.
Prejean came under fire again post-pageant, when semi-nude photos of her from a lingerie modeling shoot surfaced. Pageant head Donald Trump ruled last week that she would be allowed to keep the Miss California crown.




Carrie Prejean fires back after losing Miss California crown

Categories: News
In an interview with TMZ, deposed Miss California Carrie Prejean said that she was "shocked" at the news she had been stripped of her crown and fired back at pageant owner Donald Trump and the pageant producers. Prejean, who was fired by Trump for failing to get clearance for extracurricular activities, claims in response that pageant head Keith Lewis actually encouraged her to pose for Playboy magazine and appear in the reality series "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!" Prejean, who sparked controversy with comments she made against gay marriage, insists the real motivation behind her firing was political: "What's behind this, I think, is a political debate. They don't agree with the stance that I took [on California's Proposition 8].... From day one they wanted me out, and they got what they wanted."



Online Exclusive: Meet Your New Miss California, Tami Farrell

Tami Farrell has taken over Carrie Prejean's responsibilities as Miss California.
The former first runner up was pressed into service after Prejean was fired by Donald Trump and pageant officials on Wednesday.
FOXNews.com got the first online interview with Farrell, and asked her about the tumultuous past 24 hours.
PHOTOS: Click for pics of Tami Farell.
FOX: Congratulations. Bit of a strange way of becoming Miss California?
Tami Farrell: Yes, it was definitely a crazy phone call to receive, but I'm excited to represent the state. I only found out yesterday! It was definitely some interesting news to receive but I'm just so excited.
FOX: Are you disappointed now that you won't be able to compete again for Miss California and have the opportunity to go on to compete for Miss USA?
Tami Farrell: I think I had a bit of a blessing. When I was 18 years old, I was Miss Teen USA, so I had a taste of being a national titleholder and being in the competition. But being able to do things here within the state is great. I am pursuing acting and a screenwriter so being able to focus on projects within the state is a real blessing to me.
FOX: Have you spoken to Carrie?
Tami Farrell: No I haven't. Unfortunately she and I never really established a relationship or friendship at the pageant but I wish her the best of luck in whatever she does now.
FOX: We hear that when you were Miss Teen USA, you baked cookies for Trump. So you must have a good relationship with him?
Tami Farrell: Yes I used to bake him cookies and brownies! I've got a good working relationship with Mr. Trump, it is always good to have him on your side.
FOX: Apparently! What are you hoping to achieve in the few months you'll be Miss California?
Tami Farrell: I have a lot of events and appearances lined up. I also do a lot of work with this charity called Sparrow Club that helps kids with medical needs. I'm really hoping I can focus on that, as well as other charities aligned with the Miss Universe Organization.
FOX: The Miss California organization obviously needs a boost right now.
Tami Farrell: Definitely. With all the attention that's been given to the program, there are many things you can do, but I think the best way to handle the recent controversy is just to re-focus it and bring back a positive light.
FOX: No hard feelings that you didn't win the title outright last year?
Tami Farrell: Everything in life happens for a reason, and I think Carrie won for a purpose. I'm just excited to see what I can do in the next few months of my reign.



Miss California USA Carrie Prejean's leaked emails: Diva alert!
Categories: Carrie Prejean
Oh, what a tangled web we weave...when first we leave a big ole electronic trail of evidence showing that we are kind of a huge pain in the ass.
While Carrie Prejean continues to claim she was fired from her position as Miss California USA due to her outspoken politics and position on same-sex marriage, a series of email exchanges published by Fox News (fair and balanced!) allegedly show an increasingly hostile Prejean corresponding with Miss California director Keith Lewis, and giving credence to pageant officials' claims that she was disrespectful and uncooperative.
Wrote Prejean to Lewis: "I expect you to be forwarding me ALL email requests and interview requests to me. I know how you are and it's not right if you are selecting things for me. Thanks for your cooperation. And fyi I am a presenter of medals at the special olympics in a few weeks for the summer games. So now u know I am doing this and I expect your full support. Also I was asked to fill in for a dj on a local radio show.. Ill be reading from a show biz script monday. I am doing this."
When Lewis reiterates politely that she needs to go through proper protoctol and provide details so that events can be placed on a master calendar, Prejean responded: "You do not cooperate with me, and you pick and chose the things YOU want me to do. That is not happening anymore. Stop speaking for me. I have MY own voice. What are u gonna do fire me for volunteering for the special olympics hahaha ur crazy No I am doing this appearance. You do not need details. Its for the SPECIAL OLYMPICS!!! You just need to know I will be doing it alright."
Honestly, she sounds like pretty much any 22-year-old (or perhaps tween) chafing at the rules and requirements of big, bossy grown-ups. But memo to Carrie: You're a pageant queen. Under Donald Trump. Not Che Guevara in a bikini, attempting to overthrow a hostile government through sheer force of will and some great separates from Bebe.
Maybe I'm being too hard on her, Popwatchers, but doesn't it seem that Prejean should have been more aware of the job requirements before accepting the crown? Or will the new spokeswoman for opposite employment not be down for long? Maybe getting fired -- and its attendant publicity blitz -- is what she hoped for all along?






David Letterman Addresses Sarah Palin Controversy
Filed under: David Letterman, Sarah Palin, Todd Palin
David Letterman has apologized for his jokes about Gov. Sarah Palin and her family that sparked angry replies from the former V.P. nominee earlier this week.
Sort of.
Tuesday night on The Late Show, Letterman quipped that Palin's daughter was knocked up Alex Rodriguez during a Yankees game, and that the hardest part of the Palins' New York City trip was keeping Eliot Spitzer away from their daughter.
This prompted the governor and her husband, Todd Palin, to slam Letterman for his "sexually perverted comments" about their 14-year-old daughter, Willow.
Todd fumed on Facebook: "Any 'jokes' about raping my 14-year-old are despicable. Alaskans know it and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too."
Letterman in Hot Water
A familiar David Letterman expression, certainly applicable to this story.
Last night, Dave said he was referring to Bristol Palin, 18, not Willow. He admitted his jokes were in "questionable taste" and that he regrets telling them.
But, he added, he did nothing to advocate sexual relations with a minor, nor would he ever. As far as being guilty of anything but making jokes in bad taste, of which he has told thousands over the years, the talk show host pleaded innocent.
That about sums it up if you ask us. An acknowledgment that he crossed the line was warranted, as was clarification on what he meant by the aforementioned jokes. But, by the same token, the Palins could chill the eff out a little.
Letterman even invited Sarah to come on the show as a gesture of good faith. Here's his explanation of, and commentary on, the recent controversy:




David Letterman-Sarah Palin Late Night Feud Enters Next Phase
David Letterman and Sarah Palin are an unlikely pairing, but David Letterman and Sarah Palin seem committed to becoming the next Late Night feud. First,
David Letterman-Sarah Palin Late Night Feud Enters Next Phase
David Letterman made tons of Sarah Palin jokes after her recent trip to New York. Next, Sarah Palin accused David Letterman of making rape jokes about her daughter. Late night, Letterman had to spend about eight minutes defending himself, finally inviting the Palins on Late Night. Letterman probably won't hold his breath for Sarah Palin to come on, so who knows where this new feud will go next.
The Letterman vs Palin debacle began when David Letterman made Sarah Palin the centerpiece of his Top 10 List Monday night, after she made a trip to New York City. Letterman's list was a hodgepodge of Sarah Palin jokes and slams against her, her politics, and her family.
The one that got the Palins riled up this time was a joke Letterman made about Bristol Palin getting "knocked up" by Alex Rodriguez during the trip. In response, Sarah Palin went on Facebook to accuse Letterman of making jokes about rape.
Palin even used Letterman's age to attack him, saying it was "disgusting" for a 62-year-old to make comments about something raping a 14-year-old. However, the 14-year-old in the Palin family is Willow, and Letterman was talking about Bristol.
Nevertheless, Letterman spent much of the top of Wednesday night's show explaining himself, and stopping just short of apologizing for it. Although Letterman tried to backtrack to a point, guest Kathy Griffin had no such qualms, filling the Palin insult quota for the night.
David Letterman and Sarah Palin were naturally going to disagree about some things if they ever got together, given their different political stances. Palin has faced comparatively worse attacks from the late night comedic circuit, although her current objection is over Letterman's jokes about her daughter.
Palin's objection to that overshadowed the other big attack of Monday night, when Letterman said she had a "slutty flight-attendant look." For that, Letterman had no regrets.



GOP WATCH: PALINS VS. LETTERMAN
Here's one rule to usually live by -- never pick a fight with a comedian, because it's rarely a fight you're going to win.
Indeed, David Letterman last night couldn't help but throw out a few new zingers regarding the controversy he's created with jokes involving Palin and her family, NBC's Dax Tejera reports. In his opening monologue, the late-night host admitted to being depressed about angering Palin -- so he went out and spent $150,000 on clothes.
Video: Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says "Late Night" host David Letterman's jokes about one of her daughters were "sexually perverted" and "disgusting." Now Letterman is responding to her comments. NBC's Norah O'Donnell reports.
After the show's first block and, Tejera adds, Letterman addressed the issue head on by reading a statement from the governor's husband, Todd, and then a response from Gov. Palin herself. Letterman repeated the jokes that the Palins are upset about, cautioning beforehand this could "very well be my last show." Letterman then said he was not necessarily proud of the jokes and that they were just that -- jokes to get a laugh. "I recognize these are ugly, these are actually ugly, these are borderline, but again, in an act of desperation to get cheap laughs, what I've been doing in the last 30 years." Letterman insisted these were not jokes about Gov. Palin's 14-year-old daughter, citing his record over the years.
"Yes, maybe these are questionable because the girl who actually, uh, excuse me, but was knocked up, is now 18-years-old.  So the difference there is 14-years-old and of legal age, okay, now I can't really defend the joke, I agree, unpleasant, ugly, but I would never, never think that it was funny to use a 14-year-old girl as joke like this for God's sake."
Per MSNBC's Norah O'Donnell, Todd Palin released this statement: "Nice attempt by Letterman to draw the heat away from himself; however, Willow was the only one at the Yankees game and the only Palin child included in the photo opportunities with the Giulianis, as was obvious. Regardless of which Palin daughter it was, Bristol, Willow or Piper, these sexually-perverted comments are outside the acceptance of mainstream America."



David Letterman: No way Sarah Palin will be a guest
Don't count on ever seeing Gov. Sarah Palin on David Letterman's show.
Letterman's jokes infuriated the Palin family this week. The governor and her husband, Todd Palin, described cracks made by the CBS host as sexually perverted.
Letterman tried to spin jokes off the unwed pregnancy of the Palins' 18-year-old daughter, but she didn't accompany her mother on a trip to New York. Rather, the Palins' 14-year-old daughter went along -- and that was the source of the furor.
The Palins blasted the late-night comedian; he answered last night that he'd never make jokes about a 14-year-old and that he didn't suggest it was all right for her to have promiscuous sex.
The Palins weren't moved by his comments, but they found a humorous way to respond. Letterman had joked that Gov. Palin would have to keep disgraced Gov. Eliot Spitzer away from her daughter.
The Palins' comeback?
"The Palins have no intention of providing a ratings boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show,"  Palin spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton told The Associated Press. "Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman."





David Letterman (Sort of) Apologizes to Sarah Palin
David Letterman has apologized to Sarah Palin -- kind of.
The talk show host joked on Tuesday night's Late Show that Palin's daughter had sex with Alex Rodriguez after her visit to a New York Yankees game -- causing the governor to slam him for making "sexually perverted comments" about her 14-year-old, Willow.

Sarah Palin vs. David Letterman
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin visited Auburn, New York, with her husband Todd, left, and 14-year-old daughter Willow last Saturday for the first annual Founders Day Parade.
Late-night talk show host David Letterman insists he was referring to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's 18-year-old daughter Bristol when he cracked a sex joke about her on Tuesday night.
In his monologue, Letterman mentioned Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, had attended a Yankees game in New York on Sunday, the day after she was in Central New York for Auburn's Founders Day celebration. Letterman took a shot at Palin's daughter in the monologue: "During the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez." Palin attended the game with her husband Todd, and their 14-year-old daughter, Willow.
Palin was disgusted by the joke. "Acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone's daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others," Palin said in a statement.
Letterman addressed the criticism during his show on Wednesday, but stopped short of apologizing. "These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl. I mean, look at my record. It has never happened. I don't think it's funny," he said. Letterman concluded by saying he'd like to have Sarah Palin on his show.




Palin spokesperson says no to appearance on Letterman
On Tuesday night, David Letterman made a comment about 14 year old Willow Palin being "knocked up" by New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez in his NBC Late Show monologue.     In the short time that has passed, there has been an outcry by Palin supporters to put Mr. Letterman in his place, asking that Mrs. Palin go on his show.
The appearance of course, would be an instant ratings winner for Letterman, but the Palin camp will not give him the satisfaction.  In an statement released minutes ago, Meghan Stapleton, a representative of the Palin family said "The Palins have no intention of providing a ratings boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show. Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman."
While it may have been a bait tactic by Letterman to draw the Palins back into the national spotlight in a negative manner, the stunt appears to have backfired on Letterman as the Tonight Show with Conan Obrien is hard on Letterman's heals after the retirement of Jay Leno.




Sarah Palin attacks David Letterman over 'sexually-perverted' joke
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is on the offensive against 'Late Night' host David Letterman for an off-color joke he made about her daughter and Alex Rodriguez.
Was Sarah Palin right to be angry at David Letterman for his joke about her daughter?
Yes, the joke was tasteless and inappropriate.
No, it was a joke, get over it.
Sarah Palin lambasted late-night comedian David Letterman Wednesday for "sexually perverted comments" about one of her teenage daughters - and rebuffed his moves to make nice.
The CBS funnyman joked Monday of Palin's recent New York visit that "during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez."
Palin was incensed.
"Laughter incited by sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is ... disgusting," the Alaska governor said in a statement.
The former GOP veep nominee's 14-year-old daughter, Willow, was the only Palin child to attend the game at Yankee Stadium.
Alaska's First Dude, Todd Palin, said "any 'jokes' about raping my 14-year-old are despicable."
But Letterman insisted on his show Wednesday night that he was referring to 18-year-old Bristol Palin, who recently gave birth to a son after roiling the presidential campaign with the revelation she was pregnant.
The unwed Bristol has since become a high-profile advocate for abstinence.
"We were, as we often do, making jokes about people in the news," Letterman said.
"These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl," he added.
"Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No," Letterman said.
The ratings-conscious comedian even made Palin an offer: "I would like you to consider coming to New York City - you and Todd as my guests, or leave Todd at home - I'd love to have you on the show. It'd be exciting."
Don't set the TiVo.
"It doesn't matter whether he was talking about Willow or Bristol, what he said was unacceptable," responded Palin spokeswoman Sharon Leighow.
Palin was in New York to receive an award for her advocacy for children with disabilities. Her family was invited to Sunday's Yankees game by former Mayor Rudy Giuliani.





David Letterman Clarifies His Jokes About Sarah Palin, Family
The Alaska governor accused Letterman of making "disgusting" and "sexually perverted" jokes
David Letterman responded to Sarah Palin on his show Wednesday night after the Alaska governor ripped the "Late Show" host for making jokes about her and her family.
Palin accused Letterman of making "disgusting" and "sexually perverted" jokes about one of her daughters, including one about her daughter being impregnated by Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez at a baseball game. She had also criticized Letterman for a joke about her looking like a "slutty flight attendant," which she deemed "pretty pathetic."
During his late night talk show, Letterman read the statements issued by Sarah Palin and Todd Palin which expressed their outrage about his seven-minute comedy segment and then went through the offending jokes to both apologize for and defend their content.
"I'm telling you, I recognize that these are ugly. These are actually ugly. These are borderline...but again, in an act of desperation to get cheap laughs, which is what I've been doing for the last 30 years," Letterman said.
Letterman concluded by inviting Palin to his show as a guest.



Sarah Palin-David Letterman feud gets TV heads talking

Say what you will about the David Letterman/Sarah Palin dust-up, at least it has drawn some attention away from Conan O'Brien, who has mostly beaten Letterman in the ratings since debuting as host of the "Tonight Show."
On Monday, Letterman cracked some Palin jokes to which the Alaskan governor took exception.
Palin did an interview with conservative radio host John Ziegler, in which she called Letterman "pathetic."
Gov. Sarah Palin
She also issued a statement Letterman read on the air last night.
Yep, it's "(public figure) versus (public figure) showdown '09!" Let's go to the tape.
Here's part of Letterman's Monday monologue, in which he made a joke about Palin's daughter getting "knocked-up" by Alex Rodriguez at a Yankees game:
Another joke she didn't like came from that night's Top 10 list. Said Letterman, the No. 2 highlight of Sarah Palin's trip to New York: "Bought makeup at Bloomingdale's to update slutty flight-attendant look." Watch:
One of Palin's arguments to Zeigler was that she never, in fact, went to Bloomingdale's. That's the part of the joke she objects to?
Anyway, the bubbling controversy prompted Letterman to address it on his show last night. He read the Palin statement, then, to laughter from the audience, said, "Here, now, are the jokes they're upset about" and explained them one by one.
"Do I regret telling them? Probably I do. But there are thousands of jokes I regret telling on this program":
Letterman, like every virtually other comedian, has been telling Palin jokes constantly since she was announced as John McCain's running mate. Earlier this year, Letterman did a Top 10 list about surprises in Palin's upcoming memoir.
No. 2 was "Claims she had three-way sex with Michael Phelps and a stripper." Was there any protest from Palin over this joke, which is arguably more offensive?:
Fox News called up a talking head to analyze the relative appropriateness of comedy as applied to the children of political figures:
This vacuous exchange between Ziegler and MSNBC's Contessa Brewer is fairly amusing:
So is this anything more than an overreaction to a harmless, if off-color, joke? Should the children of political figures be off-limits no matter what? Or, if kids are used as props in a political campaign, are they fair game, too?





 Letterman (Tepidly) Apologizes; Palins (Not So Tepidly) Fire Back
So now we know what crosses the line.  If you eviscerate Gov. Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, and compare her speechifying to beauty-pageant stumping, you can expect her to take it in stride. But call her a "slutty flight attendant" while making untoward remarks about her brood, and expect her full wrath.
The background:
After David Letterman made some crude jokes about Bristol Palin in Monday's Late Show monologue—specifically, joking that the 18-year-old abstinence crusader had been knocked up by Yankees third baseman (and Kate Hudson squeeze) Alex Rodriguez—Sarah Palin fired back with this -- check out our Gaggle post on it, as well:
        Laughter incited by sexually perverted comments made by 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is not only disgusting, but it reminds us that some Hollywood/NY entertainers have a long way to go in understanding what the rest of America understands.
So on Tuesday, Letterman defended himself with this:
         We were, as we often do, making jokes about people in the news and we made some jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter, the 18-year-old girl, who is—her name is Bristol, that's right, and so, then, now they're upset with me. These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl. I mean, look at my record. It has never happened. I don't think it's funny. I would never think it was funny. I wouldn't put it in a joke… Gov. Palin, if you're watching, I would like you to consider coming to New York City—even Todd—as my guests, or leave Todd at home. I'd love to have you on the show. It'd be exciting. All right, so there, I hope I've cleared part of this up. Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No.
And as of this morning, Palin issued an "exclusive" statement via her rep to FoxNews, along the lines of Letterman-can-shove it:
        The Palins have no intention of providing a rating's boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show. Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman.
What do you think? Is Letterman out of line?  Or is Palin, who keeps erroneously stating that Letterman's jokes targeted Willow, rather than Bristol, just being cranky?



David Letterman defends his sex joke about Sarah Palin's daughter
NEW YORK - Effectively accusing David Letterman of being a dirty old man, Sarah Palin ripped the CBS late night host Wednesday for making crude jokes about her 14-year-old, but Letterman claimed he was talking about her other daughter.
"I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl," he said on his program Wednesday night. "I mean, look at my record. It has never happened. I don't think it's funny. I would never think it was funny. I wouldn't put it in a joke."
And, Dave being Dave, he added: "Governor Palin, if you're watching, I would like you to consider coming to New York City -- you and Todd as my guests, or leave Todd at home."
"All right, so there, I hope I've cleared part of this up. Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was OK for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No."

During his Monday night monologue, Letterman cracked that the Alaska governor suffered an awkward moment while attending a recent Yankees game: "During the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez." Last night, he explained -- or insisted -- that it was Bristol (18), not her sister Willow he was referring to.
An infuriated Palin responded in a statement to foxnews.com: "Concerning Letterman's comments about my young daughter (and I doubt he'd ever dare make such comments about anyone else's daughter): 'Laughter incited by sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is not only disgusting, but it reminds us some Hollywood/NY entertainers have a long way to go in understanding what the rest of America understands -- that acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone's daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others.'"
Palin has been a favorite target of Letterman. On Monday, he highlighted the "Top Ten Highlights of Sarah Palin's Trip to New York," which included such one-liners as No. 3: "Bought makeup from Bloomingdale's to update her 'slutty flight attendant' look."

Talk show host David Letterman says he was "guilty of poor taste" after causing a stir with some sexually suggestive jokes about one of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's teenage daughters, admitting he confused 18-year-old intended target Bristol Palin with her 14-year-old sister, Willow. The comedian's 7-minute-plus discussion of the controversy during his Wednesday show can be seen on the video link below:
  Todd Palin, the governor's husband, has accused Letterman of making a joke about someone "raping" his younger daughter. Neither girl was directly named in the original joke, which also namechecked New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez.
Letterman responded, "I would never, ever make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl. I mean, look at my record. It has never happened." The comedian also invited the governor to appear on his show, but suggested she leave Todd at home.
A spokesman for the governor was not immediately available to comment on Letterman's latest statements.
Writing on the news blog The Huffington Post, Amy Siskind, co-founder of women's advocacy group The New Agenda, wrote that Letterman's jokes about Willow should be cause for concern for conservatives and non-conservatives alike, and that some in the media apply a double-standard by not voicing concern about sexism applied to conservatives like Palin.
"… When Governor Sarah Palin's 14-year-old daughter is the subject of a degrading and humiliating joke by David Letterman, how can we let this be part of our culture?" Siskind wrote.
Another political offpring, Meghan McCain, also chimed in, declaring Letterman's comments "disgusting and sexist." (McCain's father, U.S. Sen. John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate in his campaign for the White House last year.)
It's not the first time that Letterman has had to eat his words. Last year, he apologized to celebrity heiress Paris Hilton, after he badgered her in a previous appearance with questions about her time in jail.





Letterman sort of apologizes about Palin wisecrack
David Letterman deftly played it both ways on Wednesday's "Late Show" as he apologized for wisecracks aimed earlier in the week at Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and one of her teenage daughters — even as he milked the situation for more laughs.
"Of course, we make mistakes left and right," the CBS host said as he began a lengthy discourse that blended flashes of contrition with moments of hilarity as he took more pokes at Palin and her family.
Letterman had made several jokes on Monday's monologue about the Palin family's visit to New York.
His Top Ten list featured "Highlights of Sarah Palin's Trip," and included: "Bought makeup at Bloomingdale's to update her 'slutty flight attendant' look."
But the diciest joke centered on the family attending a Yankees baseball game.
Letterman said "an awkward moment" occurred for Palin when, "during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by (Yankee third baseman) Alex Rodriguez."
Without naming her, the joke seemed to refer to Palin's 18-year-old daughter Bristol, an unwed mother.
But it was 14-year-old daughter Willow, not Bristol, who had been at the game.
Todd Palin issued a statement that said "any 'jokes' about raping my 14-year-old are despicable."
And Sarah Palin charged Letterman with "sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity."
"I am not a celebrity," said a deadpan Letterman, interrupting himself as he read the statements aloud on Wednesday's show. "I'm 62 years old, but I'm not a celebrity."
He denied the joke was meant to be about Willow Palin.
"I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl," he said, dropping his signature sarcasm. "I don't think it's funny. I would never think it was funny."
"I'm not necessarily proud of these jokes," he said in a more ironically self-deprecating moment. "We do stuff all the time and our objective here is to get a laugh, and thank God we don't have to go to the Hague and the World Court to defend them. It's a joke and that's all it's supposed to be."
Before he was done, he tried to boil down the situation into two key points, which he stated with playful precision:
"Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes.
"Did I suggest that it was OK for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No."
He also invited Palin to be a guest on his show, saying, "I think we could put these differences behind us." But the offer, extended to both Palin and her husband ("or leave Todd at home," Letterman suggested), was turned down on Thursday.
"The Palins have no intention of providing a ratings boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show," said Palin spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton. "Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman."




Palin says Letterman a threat to 14-year old daughter Willow
Going up against comedians is usually full of peril. Especially comedians who have millions of viewers and have been national TV icons since the early 1980s. Yeah, like David Letterman.
Letterman usually wins. He's got the charisma, the humor, the microphone, and a big loyal following. Although John McCain kissed his ring last fall when he fell out of favor with the late night comic, McCain's former sidekick is not bowing down or shying away.
Anything but. She's taking on Letterman like she said she would do with anyone who talks negatively about her children — like a mama grizzly. And like that mama grizzly, she appears to think she can win the battle.
Willow
The latest lob between Letterman and the Palins came after the late night host's clarification yesterday that his joke about a Palin daughter getting "knocked up" by Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez was aimed at the governor's 18-year-old daughter Bristol. Not 14-year-old daughter Willow.
"These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl. … Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was OK for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No," Letterman explained last night.
The problem with Letterman's "clarification" is that his joke made mention of the Yankees game Palin attended on Sunday. She attended with her 14-year-old daughter not the 18-year-old.
And the Palins are taking his statement literally.
Threat
Do they accept his clarification? Absolutely not. When asked if the Palins would accept Letterman's invitation to appear on his show, Palin spokesperson Meg Stapleton indicated that Letterman would be a threat to Willow.
"The Palins have no intention of providing a ratings boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show. Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman," Stapleton said.
Duo
It's not just Palin's spokesperson either. Yesterday, both parents ripped into Letterman.
"Acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone's daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others," the governor said in a statement.
Todd Palin added, "Any 'jokes' about raping my 14-year-old are despicable. Alaskans know it, and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too."
Apologize, Dave
Although Gallup hasn't polled it yet, there are plenty of people coming to Palin's aid on this one. Like the Chicago Tribune's Steve Chapman.
"Instead of acting as though he's the victim of someone else's misunderstanding, as he did last night, Letterman ought to simply admit he blew it, big time, and personally apologize to the Palins and his viewers," Chapman writes. "He also should to keep in mind that if you're going to ridicule someone's sex life, you might pick on someone your own size. And make very sure you have the right person."
Upper hand
Media Critic Eric Deggans thinks Letterman made a mistake but the Palins have more to lose.
"If I were Dave, I would have apologized for not making it clear that he was referring to Bristol, who is an adult, and not Willow, who is not," Deggans writes. "That said, I think the Palins are making the biggest mistake here; their aggressive response may play well with their hardcore fans, but adding this feud on top of open conflict with Newt Gingrich is liable to wear out their welcome with the general public quickly."
Next
The ball is in Letterman's court. If he backs down and apologizes the controversy will end much more quickly. After all, the Palins have shown they aren't afraid to fight. And although Letterman's on TV much more than Sarah Palin, she can get air time any time she wants.
Advantage? Palin.

Topless Miss California Now Jobless
Miss California Topless
Carrie Prejean can now devote more time to how she thinks gay people should live and why her shirt seems to come undone at photo shoots.
The erstwhile Miss California USA has lost her crown. Pageant bigwig Donald Trump told my friends at TMZ: "To me she was the sweetest thing. Everyone else -- she treated like s**t."
Apparently, Prejean wasn't getting clearance to do all her extracurricular stuff and failed to turn up at as many as 30 appearances. Sources say the firing is based solely on what Trump considers breach of contract, not her stance against gay marriage or her topless photos.
The new Miss California USA will be Miss Malibu Tami Farrell.
TMZ is reporting that Prejean fired off a bunch of nasty emails to pageant officials. On May 29, she wrote: "You do not cooperate with me, and you pick and chose [sic] the the [sic] things YOU want me to do. That is not happening anymore. Stop speaking for me. I have MY own voice."






Donald Trump to Miss California: You're Fired!

Carrie Prejean just ran out of second chances.
The embattled Miss California, a controversy-magnet for her outspoken opposition to gay marriage, has been forced to turn over her tiara after ticking off Donald Trump one time too many.
In a just-released statement, Trump and the Miss California USA Organization say that Prejean has been fired for violating her contract—specifically for lending her famous face to outside organizations without getting permission from her handlers.
"I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California USA Organization, and I gave her the opportunity to do so," said Trump. "Unfortunately, it just doesn't look like it is going to happen.
"Carrie is a beautiful young woman and I wish her well as she pursues her other interests."
Prejan hasn't made a public peep yet in reaction to the news.
Miss California officials insist the move had nothing to do with her stance on same-sex marriage or racy photos that surfaced weeks ago.
"This was a decision based solely on contract violations, including Ms. Prejean's unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization," said Miss California USA Executive Director Keith Lewis.
"After our press conference in New York, we had hoped we would be able to forge a better working relationship. However, since that time it has become abundantly clear that Carrie is unwilling to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together."
Last month, Trump called a summit of Prejean and the Miss California pagaent people and announced that the beleaguered beauty would retain her title. She, in turn, promised to toe the line, saying, "I am not an activist, nor do I have a personal agenda."
Afterward, one of Prejean's fiercest critics and former Miss USA Shanna Moakler stepped down from the Miss California Organization. "It's obvious to everybody that the lying is still going on," Moakler said. "I just couldn't stand behind her."
Today, after learning of Prejean's termination, Moakler said she felt vindicated.
"First and foremost, my faith has been restored in the Miss Universe Organization and with Donald Trump. I believed eventually what I intimately knew would come to fruition," the model-actress said in a statement.
Runner-up Tami Farrell will now assume the Miss California USA title and take over all of Prejean's responsibilities, including appearance requests.

Carrie Prejean has been dethroned as Miss California USA.
Prejean, 22, retained her title last month despite a controversy over topless photos, missed appearances and her statements against same-sex marriage.
Miss USA pageant owner Donald Trump decided to fire Prejean a month after he gave her a second chance.
"Carrie is a beautiful young woman, and I wish her well as she pursues her other interests," Trump said.
Runner-up Tami Farrell, who was Miss Malibu, will immediately assume the Miss California USA title, state pageant Executive Director Keith Lewis said.
"This was a decision based solely on contract violations, including Ms. Prejean's unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization," he said.
Trump brought Prejean and Lewis together in New York for a meeting last month, after which he announced that communications between the beauty queen and pageant officials had been repaired.
"I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California USA organization, and I gave her the opportunity to do so," Trump said. "Unfortunately, it just doesn't look like it is going to happen, and I offered Keith my full support in making this decision."
Charles Limandri, Prejean's lawyer, said she learned about the decision Wednesday morning in a phone call from Trump's office.
"This is all kind of a big shock," Limandri said. "We've been working with Mr. Trump's office; she's been doing all the speaking engagements she's been asked to do. It is not true that she has not been cooperating."
No one from the pageant organization ever warned Prejean she was not doing what they wanted, he said.
"Something is going on," he said. "Truth is not being told. I don't understand where this is coming from, or why."
Don't Miss

"For people to say that she breached her contract, that she is not doing speaking engagements is false," he said. "She did one last Sunday in Las Vegas and it went really well."
Prejean stepped into controversy at the Miss USA pageant in April when she declared her opposition to same-sex marriage in a response to a question asked during the national pageant by Perez Hilton, a pageant judge. Prejean finished as first runner-up, but it was not clear if her answer cost her the crown.
The controversy boiled to a new level in early May when seminude photos of Prejean appeared on gossip Web sites.
Miss California USA officials -- some of them outspoken advocates of same-sex marriage -- suggested that the photos breached the contract Prejean signed with the pageant. These officials also complained they couldn't reach Prejean and she had missed important pageant events.
The controversy seemed over when Trump declared the pictures not to be too racy and Prejean promised to do better in communicating with the state pageant.
"After our press conference in New York, we had hoped we would be able to forge a better working relationship," Lewis said Wednesday. "However, since that time, it has become abundantly clear that Carrie is unwilling to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together."
Hilton, the judge who asked the same-sex question during the pageant, cheered Prejean's firing.

Carrie Prejean stripped of the Miss California crown

Controversy magnet Carrie Prejean has lost her Miss California crown, Fox News is reporting. The Miss USA contestant, who last month was allowed to keep her title by pageant owner Donald Trump after semi-nude photos of her surfaced, has been let go by pageant producers K2 Productions, who cited "contract violations" as the sole reason for the decision. TMZ reports that Trump fired her for failing to get clearance to do extracurricular activities. "I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California Organization and I gave her the opportunity to do so," Trump concurred in the announcement of today's firing.

Miss California USA Carrie Prejean loses title [Updated]
Miss California USA Carrie Prejean, whose comments opposing gay marriage sparked controversy, has been stripped of her title, officials said today.
The action comes a month after Donald Trump, who runs the Miss USA pageant, announced she would retain the crown.
A spokesperson for K2 Productions, which operates the Miss California, confirmed to The Times that Prejean has been stripped of her crown because of "contract violations." Fox News reported that pageant officials contended that she failed to participate in pageant-related events.
The controversy began nearly a month ago, when Prejean was asked about her views on same-sex marriage during the nationally televised Miss USA pageant. Although she said she believed people were entitled to do as they liked, she said marriage should be recognized only as an institution between a man and a woman.
Trump said he had no problem with Prejean's comments. "She gave a very honest answer when asked a tough question," he said at a New York news conference with Prejean sitting next to him. "It was the same answer the president of the United States gave ... She has to be commended."
Trump also said he reviewed semi-nude photos of Prejean that have surfaced in recent days and concluded they should not disqualify her. "We are in the 21st century," said Trump, who owns the pageant. "We have determined that the pictures taken were fine."
Prejean, who has appeared on Fox News in recent weeks, could not immediately be reached for comment.
[Updated at 1:25 p.m.: K2 Productions said Tami Farrell, who was first runner-up in the Miss California USA competition, will take over the crown.
Miss USA officials said in a statement that Trump supported the firing. In another statement, officials said they took the action because of "Ms. Prejean's unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization."]

Less than a month after being told by Donald Trump that she can keep her Miss California crown, Carrie Prejean was fired on Wednesday, Foxnews.com learned exclusively.
K2 Productions, the independent producers of the Miss California USA pageant, under license from Miss Universe, cited continued breach of contract issues as the reason for Prejean's firing. The decision was revealed in documents first obtained by FOXNews.com.
"This was a business decision, based solely on contract violations," Keith Lewis, executive director of K2 Productions, said in the documents. "After our press conference in New York we had hoped we would be able to forge a better working relationship. However, since that time it has become abundantly clear that Carrie has no desire to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together."

Prejean came under fire for her answer to a question about gay marriage two months ago in the Trump-owned Miss USA pageant, in which she was the runner-up. After the pageant, Prejean was continuously attacked as she defended her belief that gays and lesbians should not be given the right to marry in California. She became embroiled in more controversy when racy pictures of her were published that some construed as violations of her Miss California contract.
Trump came to her defense in a May 12 press conference attended by Prejean and Keith Lewis, calling her answer to the question "honest" and saying "we have determined ... that the pictures taken are fine." He allowed her to continue on as Miss California.





Donald Trump 'fires' Carrie Prejean: Controversial Miss California stripped of crown
Carrie Prejean has been stripped of her Miss California title.

LOS ANGELES - Donald Trump has bestowed his famous catchphrase on polarizing pageant queen Carrie Prejean. She's fired.
After publicly supporting the Miss California winner and her right to free speech following anti-gay marriage comments she made at the April 19 Miss USA contest, Trump yanked her crown Wednesday, citing alleged contract violations.
Officials said Prejean has missed a slew of pageant-organized appearances and doesn't seek clearance before participating in unsanctioned activities.
"I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California USA Organization, and I gave her the opportunity to do so," Trump said in a statement.
"Unfortunately it just doesn't look like it is going to happen." Keith Lewis, director of Miss California USA, said he had hoped to patch things up with Prejean after the love-fest press conference with Trump in New York, but "since that time it has become abundantly clear that Carrie is unwilling to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together."
He said the decision was based "solely on contract violations," not anything related to her political views or the mini scandal involving her topless photos. Prejean became a viral video sensation after she answered a question on gay marriage posed by celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, a guest judge at the Miss USA pageant.
"I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman," she said. Hilton, who is openly gay, blasted her on his popular blog, calling her a "dumb b**ch."
The National Organization for Marriage - which opposes gay nuptials - ran to Prejean's defense and put her in a new ad not cleared with Miss California USA officials.
Prejean's replacement is Miss Malibu Tami Farrell.

Britney Spears is dating her agent Jason Trawick
Could this be love? Spears has often been photographed with Trawick at her side.
Love is in the air for Britney Spears!
After a string of failed relationships with paparazzo Adnan Ghalib and a devastating divorce from Kevin Federline, Britney Spears has finally found a new man.
Spears, 27, is reportedly dating her agent, Jason Trawick, People.com reports.
"They are totally and definitely dating," the source says. "Her dad loves him. He's the best thing that happened to her."
The report ends months of speculation revolving around the couple's questionably close relationship.
The singer is said to have "always had a crush" on Trawick, who happens to be one of her brother Bryan's best friends.
The couple recently took a vacation in the Bahamas with her sons, Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden, 2, in May.
"They're very sweet together," the source says. "He makes Britney really happy, and he's great with the boys."

"We want to be young parents and be able to chase around our kids and run and coach our kids. So, very soon," she said in an interview last month.
Baskett, 26, popped the question in Seattle last November and the couple have since been chronicling their wedding plans on Kendra's self-titled reality show. The young stars plan to marry at the world-famous home of Wilkinson's former beau, Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner.

Miley Cyrus & Justin Gaston Split | Miley Cyrus
In recent days, Miley Cyrus and Justin Gaston have taken to their separate Twitter pages with messages of woe.
"Tears are words the heart can't express," Cyrus, 16, wrote Sunday night. Gaston, 20, tweeted the next morning, "How many tears are in there? They've gotta run out soon, right?"
On Tuesday, a source confirms the reason behind the tears. "They broke up on Sunday before she left for Savannah" to film her new movie, The Last Song, the source tells PEOPLE.
The pair was last spotted together on Friday at the Hannah Montana wrap party in Los Angeles. "Miley introduced him to people," an insider says. "There was no hint [of problems]. They were a couple as usual."
Two days later came the Twitter posts. No official reason has been given for the breakup, first reported on E! Online. But Cyrus has recently been spending a lot of time with ex Nick Jonas – with whom she sang the duet "Before the Storm," which premieres Friday on Radio Disney.
"They have been recording music and spending more time together," says the source. Cyrus and Jonas, 16, also saw each other in L.A. on Saturday for Disney's Friends for Change video shoot.
Reps for Cyrus and Gaston had no comment.



Adam Lambert Talks About His Crush On Kris Allen
'American Idol' runner-up tells Rolling Stone rooming with the winner was 'distracting.'
Adam Lambert spills the beans on a lot of things in his upcoming Rolling Stone cover story, from finally coming out as a gay man, to discussing his psychedelic fungus-fueled revelation about trying out for "American Idol" and his struggles to escape the sometimes dark, twisted Hollywood party scene.
But one of the most shocking admissions he makes is that not only is be good buddies with "Idol" winner Kris Allen, but when the two were first paired up as roommates in the "Idol" top 13 mansion, he kind of had a crush on the shy, married singer from Conway, Arkansas.
After making the top 13, Lambert sublet his Hollywood studio apartment and moved into the show's Bel-Air mansion. "I was like, 'Oh, sh--, they put me with the cute guy," Lambert said about the eventual "Idol" champ. "Distracting! He's the one guy I found attractive in the whole group on the show: nice, nonchalant, pretty and totally my type — except that he has a wife. I mean, he's open-minded and liberal, but he's definitely 100 percent straight." A spokesperson for Allen could not be reached for comment at press time.
And while he's diplomatic about it, Lambert makes it clear that his relationship with third-place finisher, Milwaukee worship leader Danny Gokey, was not quite as easy. Lambert said the two discussed religion a few times and "Danny is by the book, and the book is The Word," he explained. "And I respect that. Just don't try to push it on me and we're cool."
You already knew Lambert was one of the most unconventional "Idol" finalists ever, but in the wide-ranging story, the 27-year-old San Diego native opens up about his childhood — he's Jewish, but never got a bar mitzvah and hated Hebrew school because he got a bloody nose on the first day — and how despite living as a gay man, he still sometimes gets excited when flirting with women. "I loved it this season when girls went crazy for me," said Lambert, who discusses making out with and experimenting with girls in high school. "As far as I'm concerned, it's all hot."
If it appeared to some that Lambert was borrowing a page from last year's winner, David Cook, by singing someone else's re-interpretation of songs on the show, he happily admits as much. "I saw what David Cook did last year and it was cool," he said. "He thought, 'I have to sing something everybody knows, but I'm going to make it work for me, and I'm not going to give a f--- about what the theme is that week — and, most of all, I'm going to just ignore the pageantry of the whole thing."
Lambert also dishes on his best friend on the show, fourth-place finisher 17-year-old Allison Iraheta, who he says didn't go for the pageantry, either, which might have been what tripped her up. "That's why it's hard for people like Allison, who won't stand there and smile, say what they want her to say," he said.



Adam Lambert is gay!: Surprised?
Categories: Adam Lambert, News
Rolling-Stone-adam-lambert_l Adam Lambert finally confirms his sexuality in the new issue of Rolling Stone. Yes, it turns out the American Idol contestant is gay. The issue hits stands this week, but RollingStone.com already has some excerpts up. "I don't think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I'm gay," Lambert says in the interview, adding, "I'm proud of my sexuality...I embrace it. It's just another part of me." Just don't call him a poster boy, Lambert urges in the piece: "I'm trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader."
What do you think, Music Mixers? Is anyone out there remotely surprised by this news? And what do you make of the snake-enhanced RS cover photograph?



Singer Lambert Says He's 'Proud' To Be Gay
American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert says he's gay on the cover of Rolling Stone.
Lambert scored second to Kris Allen on Fox's popular singing contest but the media's obsessive speculation about his sexuality, at, some would say, Lambert's own prodding, has thrust the twenty-seven-year-old into a dazzling spotlight.
"I'm proud of my sexuality. I embrace it. It's just another part of me," Lambert reportedly says in the new interview.
"I don't think it should be a surprise to anyone to hear I'm gay. I've been living in Los Angeles for eight years as a gay man. I've been at clubs drunk making out with somebody in the corner."
And Lambert says his revelation of Hollywood's worst-kept secret nearly came at the end of the reality series.
"Right after the finale, I almost started talking about it to the reporters, but I thought, 'I'm going to wait for Rolling Stone, that will be cooler,'" he adds.
Lambert's coming out cover is expected to hit newstands this week.

adamlambertrolling.jpgI realize this is jaw-dropping news for those of you living under a rock for the past six months, but American Idol's Adam Lambert is confirming those pesky rumors.
"I don't think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I'm gay," the runner-up told the new issue of Rolling Stone.
Yeah, it's not.
"I'm proud of my sexuality," Adam admitted. "I embrace it. It's just another part of me."
But he's not getting all political on us. "I'm trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader," he told the mag.
Adam kept mum on his sexuality while on the talent competition, just because he didn't want it to be the big issue it was bound to be.
"I was worried that [coming out] would be so sensationalized that it would overshadow what I was there to do, which was sing," the rocker smartly said. "I'm an entertainer, and who I am and what I do in my personal life is a separate thing. it shouldn't matter. Except it does. It's really confusing."
He says that the Idol producers let him handle it the way he wanted -- and that the show gave his confidence a boost.
"I finally checked into my self-worth for the first time in my life, and the fact that it coincided with Idol is so sweet," he says. "I mean, I still have moments where I think, 'Oh, my skin is terrible, and I'm a little fat -- I should really go to the gym more.' But for the most part, when I look in the mirror now, I finally see somebody who can do something cool."
And cool is just the tip of the iceberg for this cat. He is going to be huge!




Idol Adam Lambert 'comes out' in print
American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert discusses his sexuality in this week's Rolling Stone magazine.
Adam Lambert is gay.
The American Idol Season 8 runner-up ends any speculation in the next issue of Rolling Stone, out Friday. "I don't think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear I'm gay." He explains: "I've been living in Los Angeles for eight years as a gay man. I've been at clubs drunk making out with somebody in the corner."

The Idol favorite, who finished in second place after Kris Allen, says, "Right after the finale, I almost started talking about it to the reporters, but I thought, 'I'm going to wait for Rolling Stone, that will be cooler.' " He adds, " I'm proud of my sexuality."
Still, Lambert, 27, says he doesn't mind attention from the opposite sex. "I loved it this season when the girls went crazy for me," he says. "As far as I'm concerned, it's all hot."
But exactly what is his type? When Idol producers put him in a room to share with Allen, Lambert says his first thought was, "They put me with the cute guy. Distracting! He's the one guy I found attractive in the whole group on the show: nice, nonchalant, pretty and totally my type — except that he has a wife. I mean he's open-minded and liberal, but he's definitely 100% straight."
As for the scandal over photos of Lambert in drag that surfaced on the Internet in March, he says, he forgot to remove photos from his profile on a social network for the Burning Man festival in Nevada. "Wasn't ready for that," he tells RS of the photos of him in costume making out with his ex. He was worried that people would think the drag ensemble was typical of him. "I've only dressed in drag three or four times. ... I don't tuck and wear breasts, that's not me."
Though Lambert supports the gay-rights movement, he doesn't want to be its poster boy. "I'm trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader."
Stereotypes about gays do annoy Lambert. "Clay Aiken's gay, and I'm gay, and we couldn't be more different. The only thing that is the same about everyone in the gay community is that we're gay. ... Why can't we talk about a human community?"
In addition to his homosexuality, Lambert shares other personal details with RS.
At 21, he was in a European tour of Hair for six months. That was when he dyed his hair black. In Germany, he started smoking pot and tried Ecstasy. But he does have limits. Among his dislikes: cocaine.
"That drug is such a reflection of the lack of self-esteem and control people have over themselves and their lives," he says.





Kris Allen Calls Adam Lambert & Drake LaBry a 'Cool Combination'
Kris Allen Calls Adam Lambert & Drake LaBry a 'Cool Combination'
Although he's encouraged people to keep speculating about his sexuality, Adam Lambert now says, "all your questions will be answered" in an upcoming issue of Rolling Stone.
"Finally," he said at the 11th Annual Young Hollywood Awards Sunday in Santa Monica, where he was named artist of the year. "Once and for all" he'll speak directly about the topic.
But the winner of American Idol, Kris Allen, 23, is already speaking out in support of his good friend and runner-up, praising Lambert for his openness.
"I think he's happier that he can be himself and it's nice," Allen says of Lambert, 27, stepping out with his friend Drake LaBry. "Adam is who he is and he's not afraid. I support him in whatever he does."
Allen, back in Los Angeles Sunday to sing the national anthem at game 2 of the Lakers-Magic NBA championship series, says that he has met LaBry, and, "he's a really nice guy."
Allen calls Lambert and LaBry's friendship a "cool combination," because they're so different. "Drake's from Louisiana and Adam is from L.A.," he says. "But they click well and they're really nice together."
Enjoying the Spotlight
Meanwhile, Allen looked relaxed an hour before singing the national anthem, which he executed to perfection, drawing a huge ovation from the Staples Center crowd, which included Rihanna, Diddy, Simon Baker and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Allen's wife Katherine joined him at the game, which the Lakers won, and she has been with him for the past couple of weeks. "[Winning Idol] has completely changed our lives," Allen says. "She is happy to be here and supporting me and she is just as excited as I am."
And the couple have even more good news to share, as Allen has officially inked a record deal with 19 Recordings and Jive Records.
"I'm really looking forward to what is next," Allen said in a statement about the deal. "I'm very grateful to be working with Simon Fuller and his team at 19 Entertainment, along with Barry Weiss and Jive Records on my debut album. Everyone's been asking me what it's going to sound like. It will be very similar to what you heard from me on the show – definitely in the pop/rock genre. I can't wait to get started!"
With his debut album due in the fall, Allen – along with Lambert and the rest of season 8's top 10 – is gearing up for the Idols Live Tour, which opens July 5 in Portland, Ore.
But Allen says his wife won't be following him on the road. "She's going to come to a couple of shows," he says, "but then she is going to go home and hang out with friends and family."

This Just Looks Like Former President Bush's Sex Scandal
President George H.W. Bush and Actress Katie Cameron
What this country really doesn't need right now is another presidential sex scandal. Thank goodness, the elder President Bush has long since retired and this photo only looks incriminating.
The former president is shown here celebrating earlier this week at his wife Barbara's 84th birthday.
The bikini-clad woman, actress Katie Cameron, is performing in A Chorus Line, and she wasn't doing anything the birthday girl didn't approve of, at least according to our friends at TMZ.com, who sent along this photo.
Several actors from the show visited the Bush family's famous Kennebunkport, Maine, home for Barbara's celebration (even if it looks like more of a party for Bush 41!)
If nothing else, the photo bears an eerie resemblance to the infamous shot of the Democrat who could have challenged Bush in the 1988 election, Garry Hart. Gary Hart and Donna Rice
For those of you with better hairlines than me, here's a little history: Hart was the front-runner for the Democratic nomination in 1988, when rumors spread of his extramarital shenanigans.
"Follow me around! I don't care!" he told the New York Times. At the time, he'd been married to his wife Lee for more than 25 years.
Reporters at The Miami Herald were already on his trail, and the National Enquirer soon published this career-ending snapshot of the former Colorado Senator with former Miss South Carolina Donna Rice on his lap. They were in Bimini, aboard a yacht that was appropriately enough called Monkey Business, as you can see from Hart's T-shirt.
Hart dropped out of the race only days after the photos became a national punchline.
In retrospect, the Hart scandal seems rather quaint. I can only assume if this happened today, that Hart would go on a national Daytime TV contrition tour. He'd cry on Oprah's couch, take a tongue lashing from Dr. Phil, and then stand before Letterman, Leno, Stewart and Colbert, for several rounds of humiliation, as if to tell the world, "Hey, I'm just a guy."
Would he be president? Go ask Bill Clinton.



Bush Sr. gives bikini babe something to sit on
Hey, that's not Barbara. Where are the pearls?

We're so jealous. TMZ gets all the great shots.
Here's one of former president George H.W. Bush enjoying wife Barbara's 84th birthday - by holding a comely woman in his lap.
TMZ says the woman is Katie Cameron, one of a group of actors from a playhouse production of "A Chorus Line" invited to the Bushes' private vacation home in Maine for the birthday bash.
No, she's not a stripper, TMZ helpfully points out.
We didn't think so.

American Idol Adam Lambert I'm Gay
American Idol Adam Lambert: I'm Gay
Adam LambertAdam Lambert: I'm Gay
As promised, Adam Lambert is clearing up all the speculation about his sexuality in the new issue of Rolling Stone.
"I don't think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I'm gay," Lambert tells the magazine. "I've been living in Los Angeles for eight years as a gay man."
While Lambert is proud of his sexuality – "I embrace it," he says. "It's just another part of me" – he's focused on his career. "I'm trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader."
Lambert, who says he was worried about coming out on American Idol because it would be "so sensationalized that it would overshadow what I was there to do, which was sing," admits to having a crush on the his roommate and Idol winner Kris Allen.
"I was like, 'Oh, s–, they put me with the cute guy,' " Lambert recalls of bunking in the Idol mansion with Allen. "Distracting! He's the one guy that I found attractive in the whole group on the show: nice, nonchalant, pretty and totally my type – except that he has a wife. I mean, he's open-minded and liberal, but he's definitely 100 percent straight."
As for the photos of Lambert dressed in drag and kissing other men that popped up online shortly after he made a splash on Idol, he says they're not really representative of who he is. "I've only dressed in drag three or four times," he says. "That's not me."
And while he's been spotted out with close friend Drake LaBry, Lambert says he didn't mind the attention he got during Idol from screaming female fans. "I loved it this season when the girls went crazy for me," Lambert admits. "As far as I'm concerned, it's all hot."



Ana Ivanovic parts ways with coach Kardon
Former French Open champion Ana Ivanovic has cut ties with coach Craig Kardon after working with him for only four months.
"I'd like to thank Craig for all his hard work," Ivanovic said in a statement. "He's a great guy and I enjoyed working with him."
The Serbian hired Kardon, a former coach of Martina Navratilova, Lindsay Davenport, Mary Pierce and Jennifer Capriati, in February but he has failed to halt her slide in form.
Twelve months after climbing to the top of the world rankings after winning her first grand slam title at Roland Garros, she dropped out of the top 10 this week and is now 13th. She was beaten in the fourth round of this year's event which ended on Sunday.
Her management company said she would be trained on a part-time basis by her sponsor's elite coaching staff during the grasscourt season.
The set-up includes Sven Groeneveld, who helped her during the 2008 season.






Is That Really The Dalai Lama? Twitter To Verify Tweeting Celebs
Stung by several incidents of impostors posing as celebrities on the popular social networking site, Twitter is implementing a verification system to authenticate the identities of famous people.
The "Verified Accounts" plan was outlined by Twitter co-founder Biz Stone in a blog posted Saturday. Under the initiative, Twitter will begin verifying the accounts of "public officials, public agencies, famous artists, athletes and other well-known individuals at risk of impersonation" and provide those accounts with a special seal, Stone said.
The blog said Twitter will be "experimenting with a beta preview" of the plan this summer but didn't otherwise provide specific dates for the effort. "We hope to verify more accounts in the future, but due to the resources required, verification will begin only with a small set" of famous Twitterers, the blog said.
Last month St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa sued Twitter in San Francisco Superior Court after an impostor created an account in his name. That account was deleted, but in his blog Stone denied reports that Twitter had settled the lawsuit and paid legal fees in the case.
"With due respect to the man and his notable work, Mr. La Russa's lawsuit was an unnecessary waste of judicial resources bordering on frivolous. Twitter's terms of service are fair and we believe will be upheld in a court that will ultimately dismiss Mr. La Russa's lawsuit," Stone wrote.
Last month Twitter was the target of an expletive-laced blog rant by rapper Kanye West after an impostor created a Twitter account in his name. Twitter suspended that account, as it has other fake celebrity accounts, including one for the Dalai Lama.
Stone said that at least initially the verification system would not be tested with businesses, although he hinted that idea could provide Twitter with an "opportunity" in the future.


Computers Causing Injuries in the Home
Falling monitors, dangerous wires a growing risk, especially for kids, study shows
Computers are everywhere in the home these days -- the office, the kid's room, maybe even on the kitchen table.
And that, according to new research, has led to more people showing up in emergency rooms with computer-related injuries.
That increase has not been slight: From 1994 to 2006, injuries caused by people tripping over computer wires or getting hit by falling equipment rose from about 1,300 a year to 9,300 a year, an increase of 732 percent nationwide.
Children under the age of 5 had the highest injury rate. The leading cause of injury for small children, and for adults over 60, was tripping or falling over computer equipment.
But while most injuries were to the extremities such as the arms or legs, young children were five times more likely than other age groups to sustain a head injury.
"It's a pretty significant problem, given that computers are in most homes these days and many homes have more than one," said study author Lara McKenzie, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.
The study will be published in the June 9 online issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
From 1989 to 2003, the number of U.S. households with a computer increased from 15 percent to 62 percent, according to the most recent statistics available from the U.S. Census Bureau. Nearly one-third of those had at least two computers.
"There are a lot of safety recommendations for all areas of the home -- the bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms, but computers are not mentioned in the literature of the safety world," McKenzie said. "Yet kids are spending a lot of time on computers, and people are spending a lot of time on their computers or in their home offices."
McKenzie and her colleagues looked at injury data collected by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's National Electronic Injury Surveillance System. Over a 13-year period, about 78,000 people sustained computer-related injuries.
The annual rate peaked in about 2003, when about 10,000 were injured by computers. The number has since dropped off, possibly because lighter, LCD screens have become more prevalent.
For all ages, the most common acute computer-related injuries were lacerations (39 percent) and contusions and abrasions (23 percent).
Computers aren't the only dangerous items in the home. A recent study also by Nationwide Children's Hospital found about 15,000 children a year are treated in hospital emergency departments for injuries caused by furniture tipping.
And since the early 1990s, the number of children injured by falling TVs, shelves and dressers has risen 41 percent.
Recently, former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson's 4-year-old daughter was accidentally strangled by a treadmill cord.
As much as possible, parents need to supervise their children, said Chrissy Cianflone, director of program operations for Safe Kids USA. Make rooms such as home offices and home gyms off limits.
"We know you can't watch your child 24 hours a day, seven days a week," Cianflone said. "But don't have them playing in the home office or the exercise equipment. Have them playing in a safe room that is baby-proofed."
Of the kids injured by computer equipment, 53 percent of those under age 5 and 41 percent of those aged 5 to 9 were hurt while playing near or climbing on computer equipment, the study showed.
To specifically minimize risk with computers, the machines should be kept on a wide, sturdy work surface that is away from walk areas, according to background information on the study. Organize and secure cords, keep the work space tidy and install safety covers on unused electrical outlets. And anchor heavy furniture or computer components to the wall.

Topless Photos Of Britney Spears Emerge Online
Shots of the singer from the 'Gimme More' video shoot posted by British tabloid.
On Sunday, British tabloid News of the World posted a series of photographs that apparently depict a topless Britney Spears and reportedly were taken on the set of Spears' 2007 "Gimme More" video shoot.
The photos show the then-brunette singer dancing in a strip club, sometimes covering herself up, other times baring fake rose tattoos that just cover her nipples.
The photos emerged just as Spears, 27, is in the midst of a European tour in support of her successful Circus album, playing a string of dates at the O2 Arena in London that will have her camping out in the English capitol until June 14.
The shots were reportedly taken on the set of the "More" video, which had a sexy dark-haired Britney working a stripper pole in a club as a blond Britney looked on.
The shoot came during a difficult period in Spears' career, following several months of erratic behavior and her temporary loss of custody of her two sons.
In the video, Spears is seen from behind covering her breasts in a series of quick shots, and it appears the stills were taken during the filming of those scenes.
Since that troubled period in the singer's life, she has re-emerged with the Circus album and her highly successful tour in support of it, the North American leg of which concluded late in April.
A spokesperson for Spears had no comment on the photos at press time.


Maria Sharapova Sharapova: I can win Wimbledon
WHEN Maria Sharapova captured the Wimbledon title as a fresh-faced 17-year-old in 2004 she announced herself on the world stage - five years on and the blonde bombshell insists she can repeat the trick.
Maria Sharapova celebrates her victory at Wimbledon in 2004
BLONDE BOMBSHELL: Maria Sharapova celebrates her victory at Wimbledon in 2004
The Florida-based Russian showed glimpses of her former self at Roland Garros last week in her first appearance at a Grand Slam tournament since Wimbledon 2008  - reaching the quarter final and defeating compatriot and 11th seed Nadia Petrova along the way.
The 22-year-old sustained a serious shoulder injury at the 2008 French Open and required extensive surgery which kept her sidelined for nine months.
Sharapova arrived in Paris with few expectations. She has slipped outside the top 100 in the world and has been forced to significantly harness her once blockbusting serve.
But her performances at Roland Garros suggested Sharapova can once again be a force at the summit of world tennis. While her technique is unsurprisingly rusty, her burning desire rages as fiercely as ever.
The three-time Grand Slam winner will begin her grass court season at the AEGON Classic in Birmingham on Monday and while she admits she faces the biggest challenge of her career, Sharapova is relishing every minute of it.
"Why can't I win Wimbledon?" she said. "If I didn't think it was a possibility I wouldn't be playing.
"I feel good. I've had a chance to take a couple of days off after the French Open and I haven't had that for a couple of months.
"I've been working hard to get myself back on the court and I've played back-to-back tournaments so it's been good to have a couple of days off.
 "My body and shoulder are feeling good, but I feel that the next few tournaments are going to be a test. You can practice as much as you want but it's never like playing a match.
"Playing tournaments is actually the easiest part. You play in a Grand Slam and you have one match then a day off. The tournament is like a gift.
"At this point in my career it's difficult for me to step out and expect to win every match I play in. All I can do is go out there and worry about what I have to do and hopefully my body will stay well and stay healthy.
"I'm proud of the work I've put in over the past ten months. At the French Open it was important for me to know that I could come back into a Grand Slam event and hit some great shots when needed and I'm getting back the feeling of being in those match situations."
Maria Sharapova is not short of a few quid but insists she didn't contemplate retirement
NAKED AMBITION: Maria Sharapova is not short of a few quid but insists she didn't contemplate retirement
In June 2007, Sharapova was listed as the richest sportswoman in the world with estimated annual earnings of more than $23m.
Her undoubted ability combined with her supermodel looks make Sharapova one of the hottest properties in sport.
Many in her position would have hung up the racket and settled for the occasional sojourn on the catwalk, but Sharapova is adamant she never contemplated retirement.
"I would never consider retiring," she said. "This sport gives me so much pleasure and this was the first time in my career I couldn't pick up a racket for three months in row.
"Every day I was either home or going to the physical therapist and it was a strange feeling - something was taken away from me that I really love to do.
"I wouldn't have fought so hard to get back out there if I really didn't love what I was doing."
Sharapova will not be seeded at the All England Club next month and the odds will be stacked against her. No unseeded player has ever won the women's Wimbledon title - but then the Russian is no stranger to breaking new ground.

'Jon & Kate Plus 8': A (gasp) happy episode! Their 100th!

If this week's Jon & Kate Plus 8 didn't quite begin cheerily -- Kate sat alone on the two-seater sofa and announced to the camera, "At this point, whoever ends up on the sofa does the interview... it's called rolling with life" -- the rest of the half-hour was downright heart-warming. Most of the time.
The special guest for the show's 100th episdoe was Emeril Lagasse, and BAM!, put this guy between Jon and Kate in the kitchen and for the first time in this fraught new season, the still- if barely-married couple actually cracked a few jokes toward each other. Emeril was his usual peppy self, bustling around with the eight kids, having them snap green beans to make a casserole. When the chef asked Jon to turn on the oven, Kate chortled, "Jon, do you know where the oven is?" To which Jon replied, "Oh, yeah. I'm the master of re-heating." Hey, it wasn't Noel Coward, but it wasn't Neil LaBute, either, so for that we were grateful.
There was a lot of good footage of the kids this week. Most of them called their guest "Em-roo," and clearly loved the affable chef. Later, a few of the tykes went outside and played cooking in the back yard: "These are broccoli rocks!" they exclaimed, picking up pebbles.
Kate loved the task Emeril came up with for Jon: peeling garlic... for about four hours, she said with sadistic delight. (That'll teach him to go tell his side of the story to People magazine, eh?)
By the end, they were all congratulating themselves for reaching a hundred episodes. "I don't know how ya made it!" said Emeril enthusiastically.
"I don't know either," said Kate ominously.
Well, I said it was a mostly happy episode...
Did you watch? Do you agree this was one of the perkier Jon & Kates so far this season?



Twitter fights celebrity imposters with Verified Account scheme

Attempt to kybosh 'Kanye' and stymie 'Spector'

Twitter has detailed plans to clamp down on celebrity imposters with a "verified account" service.
The move follows a lawsuit by St Louis Cardinals boss Tony La Russa over bogus tweets made in his name, as well as the creation of numerous other counterfeit celebrity profiles over recent months.
Twitter co-founder Biz Stone dismissed La Russa's lawsuit as "an unnecessary waste of judicial resources bordering on frivolous", but nonetheless acknowledged that the microblogging service had to do more to restore trust in the authenticity of accounts. Impersonation violates Twitter's Terms of Service, and the microblogging services already suspends or transfers control of accounts identified as fraudulent.
That doesn't stop anyone creating a fake account in the first place, however. To restore faith in the authenticity of celebrity profiles, Twitter plans to add a Verified Accounts feature. These accounts will incorporate a seal showing that they have been verified as belonging to the person or organisation named, a posting by Stone on the Twitter blog explains.
Still, the feature will be restricted to the Twitterati of celebrities and high profile organisation, at least for now. Trials of the service will start with "public officials, public agencies, famous artists, athletes, and other well-known individuals at risk of impersonation," Stone explained.
Twitter, which has no revenue stream, justified the restriction as necessary because of the resources needed to make the scheme work, even on a limited basis.
"Please note that this doesn't mean accounts without a verification seal are fake — the vast majority of Twitter accounts are not impersonators," Stone writes. "Another way to determine authenticity is to check the official website of the person for a link back to their Twitter account."
Stone hinted that verified accounts might be sold as a premium service to business.
"When we do start testing Account Verification, we will be sure to provide ample methods for feedback," Stone said. "Initially, verification will not be tested with businesses. However, we do see an opportunity in that arena so we'll keep you posted when we have something to share."
Recent well-publicised cases of microblogging impersonation include updates purporting to come from the jail cell of music producer turned convicted murderer Phil Spector. Other celebrities impersonated via fake Twitter accounts have included figures as diverse as Vint Cerf, veteran Labour politician Tony Benn, American rapper and record producer Kanye West and the Dalai Lama. ®





Oprah Winfrey Medical Advice Sometimes More Harm Than Good
Oprah Winfrey has command of more than 40 million viewers each week, some so devoted they follow her every word without question.  A recent investigative report in Newsweek magazine questions her message, though, asking if the "Oprah Effect" produces more harm than good.
At issue is the medical advice dispensed by the show.  Critics, like Cynthia Pearson, executive director of the National Women's Health Network, says the experts and specialists on the Oprah show don't always bring forth the risks associated with the cures and therapies they tout, especially when it's a celebrity, not a physician, presenting the information.  Given Oprah's phenomenal influence, many viewers, mostly women, follow her advice blindly, even in the absence of enough objective data to make a choice that's both safe and effective.  Syracuse University professor of television and pop culture, Robert Thompson, says the show gives validity to a number of health claims that many people would otherwise consider really "crackpot ideas."
Weston Kosova, a Newsweek magazine senior editor, says some of Winfrey's guests give advice that could actually hurt someone.  Some examples cited in the extensive report include the theory comedienne Jenny McCarthy advocates, linking common childhood vaccines to autism, and actress Suzanne Somer's enthusiasm for hormone replacement therapy (HRT) as a means of staying young and beautiful forever.
Responding to queries from CBS News, Oprah said her show focuses on topics, numbering in the thousands, that represent "the human experience," including stories of personal health triumphs and advice from doctors.  She says her trust in the wisdom of her viewing public leads her to believe individuals will seek thorough and legitimate medical advice before embarking on any therapies or treatments they discover while watching her show.



5 Things You Should Know About Snow Leopard

wwdc apple snow leopard os xFor years, Apple has churned out versions of Mac OS X pumped full of new features geared toward the average user. And it seems like with every iteration of Mac OS X, the new feature count balloons. While many of these new features are small -- for example, Apple touted additional fonts as a new Leopard feature -- new features still drove marketing and appeal for new Mac OS X versions. With Snow Leopard, Apple is taking a detour, and is focusing on performance, under-the-hood improvements, and user interface refinements. That doesn't mean Snow Leopard isn't worth paying attention to, though. Here are five things you should know about Snow Leopard.
Speed and Efficiency
Snow Leopard includes a host of new features with performance in mind, such as Grand Central Dispatch (which allows Snow Leopard to better take advantage of multi-core processors) and OpenCL (which lets Snow Leopard use the graphics card to do general computing tasks). This has uses beyond science, 3D, gaming, and such, but could be put to work for everyday tasks. Also, Snow Leopard should use much less disk space; Apple claims you could regain over 6 GB of disk space by installing Snow Leopard, but your mileage will most certainly vary.
As a point of comparison, Windows 7 Release Candidate saw a slight performance boost over Windows Vista in our preliminary testing.
Price
Snow Leopard will be a $29 upgrade for users of Leopard ($49 for the five-license family pack). With previous upgrades, you would have to pay the full price -- $129 -- even if you were upgrading from 10.4 to 10.5, for example. Apple probably reasons that most users won't be able to see the new features and changes, which Apple has traditionally used to sell Mac OS X upgrades, so Apple will cut Leopard users a break this time. Even during the keynote, Apple positioned Snow Leopard as "Leopard: Second Edition" instead of a brand new version. It seems to fit in between a service pack and a full-blown upgrade, so it's priced appropriately.
New Goodies to Come
While there aren't a whole lot of features that you'll be able to notice offhand (aside from improved performance, perhaps) Snow Leopard's big under-the-hood changes should result in better software for users going forward.
PowerPC Users: No Leopard for You!
If you own an older Mac from before Apple's switch to Intel processors, you're out of luck; Snow Leopard will only run Intel-CPU-based Macs. Snow Leopard will debut nearly four years after the first Intel Macs shipped in January 2006.
Get It in September
Last week Microsoft announced that Windows 7 would be publicly released in October. Today, Apple announced Snow Leopard will be available in September, at which point you can expect unending comparisons between Snow Leopard and Windows 7. Fight!

Nude Carla Bruni photo auctioned in Berlin
BERLIN  A revealing photograph of former model and France's current first lady Carla Bruni was bought for $19,600 by an anonymous bidder Thursday at a Berlin auction house.
The image is one of 10 prints of a nude Bruni lounging in an unmade bed captured by American fashion photographer Pamela Hanson in 1994.
The Villa Grisebach auction house appraised "Carla Bruni in Bed" at $3,568-$4,997 and talked to prospective buyers from as far away as Mexico, according to the house's photography expert, Franziska Schmidt.
"I really don't know why there is such a hype," Schmidt said. "For us it is not the highlight."
Last year, Christie's auction house in New York sold a different nude print of Bruni for 30 times more than anticipated. An anonymous bidder paid $91,000 for the photograph.
Villa Grisebach would not provide any information on the winning bidder Thursday.


Spice Girl's Geri Halliwell almost slipped out of her string bikini top
Tight fit: Are you sure that's your bikini, Geri? Ex-Spice Girl's swimsuit nearly slips free

Geri Halliwell may be blessed with enviable curves, but she may need a new swimsuit to help contain them.
Today, as she sunbathed in a pink halterneck two-piece, the 36-year-old almost slipped out of her string bikini top. She also tried on a white bikini - which promptly followed the first in partially sliding off.
Geri, whose weight has fluctuated over the years, was showing off her body as she soaked up the sun alongside boyfriend Henry Beckwith.

The mother-of-one and her aristocratic lover were enjoying the weather on the Italian isle of Sardinia.
Geri spent the day reading One Day by David Nicholls as she lounged on a sun bed next to Beckwith.
With a flower in her hair and carrying a designer handbag she looked relaxed and happy.

Beckwith took the occasional phone call, but otherwise seemed content to soak up the view - admiring his pop star companion.
At one point she leant over his sunbed to embrace him, as he wrapped an arm around her toned thigh.
The couple have not been together long -  it was only in early March that Geri and yacht tycoon Fabrizio Politi ended their relationship.
The two met in a nightclub in Italy last December and within weeks had announced their engagement.

Geri became pregnant after a brief relationship with 42-year-old scriptwriter  Sacha Gervasi in Los Angeles and relations between the two are said to be fraught.

Tennis starlet Simona Halep 34DD Boobs breast reduction surgery

WIMBLEDON hopeful Simona Halep is to have a boob job to reduce the size of her 34DD bust.
The 17-year-old has won a string of junior titles and her form has won her an army of admirers.
But the 5ft 5in Romanian competitor has told how she thinks her boobs are holding her back.
She has booked herself into a private hospital for surgery in the autumn to make them smaller. She explained: "The breasts make me uncomfortable when I play."
Simona reckons the sheer weight of her boobs slows her down on the courts and could cost her vital points. She added: "It's the weight that troubles me - my ability to react quickly.
"My breasts make me uncomfortable when I play, as well.
"I don't like them in my everyday life either. I would have gone for surgery, too, if I hadn't been a sportswoman."
Simona has been tipped as one of the tennis stars of the future after winning a host of junior titles and a place in the final of the junior French Open last year.

Tennis star to have surgery to shrink 'uncomfortable' 34DD breasts

A Romanian tennis star has announced she will undergo breast reduction surgery in a bid to boost her performance on the court.
Simona Halep, 17, says her 34DD breasts are hampering her tennis and is reported to have scheduled private surgery later this year.
The teenager, who has a host of junior tennis titles and won the junior French Open last year, says the operation would mean she has less weight to carry on court.

The 5ft 5in player has said her large bust means she is slow to react to opponents' shots.
She said: 'This fall I'll have a breast reduction operation.
'The breasts make me uncomfortable when I play. It's the weight that troubles me - my ability to react quickly.'
Miss Halep, from Constantza, Romania, is currently ranked 264th in the world. She lost in the second qualifying round for this year's French Open at Roland Garros.
Fans of the tennis star have started an online petition to get her to reconsider her decision to have surgery.
