Nancy Ostertag and Dave Hogan/Getty ImagesWe know certain supermarket tabloids are known for their reports of Elvis sightings, alien abductions and celebrity confessions that never happened, but several UK sites are reporting that Pamela Anderson has been seeing Michael Jackson. C'mon guys, we're not buying it! Pam digs the rocker types like Tommy Lee and Kid Rock while Michael Jackson prefers… well… back to the topic at hand.Read More »from Worst rumor ever: Pam Anderson dating Michael Jackson
Apparently Jacko and Pam are currently "hooking up in Malibu." A source claims, "It was all arranged by their people in total secrecy, very cloak and dagger." Hmm, wouldn't Michael be public about this? He could use the good publicity.
"They arrived separately at the Shutters Hotel on Malibu Beach so no one would suspect anything and then had a few drinks in the bar," says the eyewitness. "They were very chatty. Pamela was being her usual flirty self and Michael seemed to be responding. They are such a strange couple but they seemed to really hit it off."
Oh yeah, and the insider claims a second date
OK/NY PostBristol Palin, the oldest daughter of vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin, is 17, unwed and pregnant. Her boyfriend, a redneck, isn't sure if he wants to be a dad. Sound familiar? Perhaps Bristol should call up Jamie Lynn Spears for a little helpful advice.Read More »from Is Bristol Palin the new Jamie Lynn Spears?
"Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned," says the Palin family in a written statement. "As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support."
Just as Jamie Lynn became engaged to her then-resistant boyfriend, Casey Aldridge, the rumor is Bristol will marry her boyfriend, Levi Johnston, who according to his MySpace page that was subsequently taken down, doesn't want kids. A high school jock, 17-year-old Levi, stated online that "I'm a f---in' redneck" who enjoys snowboarding and riding dirt bikes, "but I live to play hockey. I like to go camping and hang out with the boys, do some

DlistedBefore a recent interview with Solange Knowles, aka Beyonce's sister, the anchors of Fox News Las Vegas asked if she would be willing to talk about the closing of Jay-Z's 40/40 Club in Vegas. Solange's rep said it was off limits and the singer would only talk about herself and her album.Read More »from YouTube of the day: Solange Knowles attacks reporter
When the interview went live, Solange mistook background banter for the actual live transmission saying, "I have to say that was not a very professional introduction before. Please don't tie me into family and my brother-in-law's establishment." The reporter wasn't sure what she was talking about until a voice came over the speaker saying, "That wasn't live, Solange."
Sure, Solange may need a crash course from big sister Beyonce on how to make classy live appearances, but she was confused and obviously heard some trash talking over her headset from somewhere off camera.
To make matters worse, Fox News later aired the segment and trashed Solange for her flub claiming she was "a brat" that should

Mark Davis/Getty ImagesIn a recent interview, Helen Mirren makes some startling revelations--she was date raped "a couple of times" and enjoyed several illegal drugs in her youth.Read More »from Helen Mirren: I loved coke and date rape isn't that bad
Continuing her recent string of eye-opening quotes, Mirren, 63, confesses to having tried illegal drugs like marijuana and LSD in her teenage years. "I loved coke," says Mirren. "I never did a lot, just a little bit at parties." She says marijuana "always made me feel miserable and paranoid and unhappy. And I woke up one day and thought, 'No more of that, thank you.' "
Fair enough. Many celebs have fessed up to drug use. What we find truly unsettling, however, is when the Oscar winner recalls her experiences with rape as "not with excessive violence, or being hit, but rather being locked in a room and made to have sex against my will." Mirren says she defends a woman's right to say "no" at any point, although she's not always in favor of reporting such attacks. "I don't think [a woman] can have that man into court under those
Washington PostPresidential-hopeful, John McCain, announced on Friday that the relatively unknown Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, would be his Republican running mate. It was a fairly surprising choice and much speculation has been made on whether it was a strategic move to pick up some of the youth vote (she's only 44 years old, whereas 72-year-old McCain would be the oldest president to ever enter office) and some would-be Hillary Clinton supports (she'd be the first female acting as Vice President and is already the first female running on the Republican presidential ticket).Read More »from McCain's VP pick: Will Sarah Palin help him win?
After taking the long weekend to get to know the candidate, do you think Sarah Palin was a good choice? Can she help John McCain beat Barack Obama and Joe Biden?
Michael Bruckner/Getty ImagesChild stars are notorious for not just growing up, but also screwing in the spotlight, but we can't help but notice a new breed of famous kids. A career driven, press hungry pack of stars who are compensating for the lack of proper love, care and attention of their parents. Often times their parents (ahem Dina and Michael Lohan) may be craving the spotlight themselves, or acting as managers forcing them to keep working when they clearly need a break (a la Jessica Simpson).Read More »from Famous kids whose parents suck
With an overbearing acts-too-young-for-her-age mother and a will-sell-out-anyone-for-publicity father, it's a miracle Lindsay Lohan and her sister Ali are as well off as they are. Sure, Lindsay did date around like it was her job and go to rehab, but now she's filming episodes of "Ugly Betty" and has a steady girlfriend. Her father Michael, however, happily runs to tabloids to mouth off about his disproval of her newly-lesbian ways, trashes girlfriend Samantha Ronson and says she's mooching off Lindsay's fame. And

We're so relieved to finally have our old standbys back ("Grey's Anatomy," "Samantha Who?" "The Office," "30 Rock," "Gossip Girl," "Heroes," "Top Design," "Ugly Betty," "Brothers & Sisters," etc) but we're also psyched to check out a ton of new programs. This season there are loads of sitcoms, dramas, cartoons, and a lot of overseas imports we hope will stand up to their already successful counterparts. Don't know which to watch? We've conveniently summed them all up in one sentence apiece. Happy viewing!
- "Kath & Kim" - based on an Australian comedy, a newly-separated woman moves back in with her divorced mom who's also looking for love.
- "Kings" - a contemporary plot based on the biblical story of King David where a small town guy rises to high society.
- "Crusoe" - a show about Robinson Crusoe (aka another program about being lost on an island).
- "Listener" - a paramedic who reads people's minds in order to solve crimes.
- "My Own Worst Enemy" - Christian Slater
Whether you have nothing to do this weekend or you just need a little time out from the sun (or your family!) we've compiled a list of every network having TV marathons over Labor Day.

DlistedWe all know the bongo-playing Matthew McConaughey can be wild, so it really comes as no surprise to learn that his mom is somewhat of a free spirit. In her new boo, I Amaze Myself!, Kay McConaughey openly shares embarrassing stories on everything from how Matthew was conceived to how her husband died while they were having sex.Read More »from Why is Matthew McConaughey so crazy? He gets it from his mama!
"On Monday mornings, he and I often said goodbye by making love," says Kay. "But one day, all of a sudden, it just happened. I knew that something was wrong, because I didn't hear anything from him. Just nothing, but it was just the best way to go!"
And when Matthew's dad couldn't be revived, Kay deliberately left his body nude. "I was just so proud to show off my big old Jim McConaughey -- and his gift," she says. Matthew is such a character himself (he recently DJ'd in his girlfriend's delivery room) that he probably doesn't even flinch from such tales.
Do think the McConaugheys are nuts? [US Weekly]
