You know what's a crock? When lead singers of "rock and roll" bands (ie: Aerosmith's Steven Tyler) get old and out of touch and start wearing gardening shoes when strutting around the streets of New York. In fact, it's horrible. Make it stop. [D-Listed]

Evan Agostini/Getty ImagesPoor Anne Hathaway has been moping around after breaking up with longterm boyfriend Raffaello Follieri, an Italian businessman whom trouble seems to follow. BUT. Don't you just love that self-validation when you're reminded you did the right thing? Turns out Anne dumped the dude just in time! Follieri has been arrested in NYC and charged with wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering. He is accused of falsely telling an investor that he had been appointed as the chief financial officer of the Vatican, which allowed him and his nasty cohorts to obtain properties of the Catholic church in the United States at a huge discount. So sketchy!Read More »from Anne Hathaway gets smart: breaks up with loser boyfriend just in time

Dave M. Benett/Getty ImagesWith Amy WInehouse spiraling out of control, Tatum O'Neal buying crack, every Joe Schmoe in Hollywood getting a DUI and TV shows like Celebrity Rehab as the norm, we were beginning to wonder if any star was capable of being responsible with substances. Adorable Jason Batemen is just that… and he didn't even need an intervention!Read More »from Jason Bateman: proving celebs are responsible one man at a time
"I've spent all my fun chips and now I've parked my drinking boots in the closet," says Bateman. "I haven't had a drink in four years. There wasn't any real specific bottom to it. I was just ready to graduate from adolescence and try my hand at being an adult. And, quite honestly, the woman I was in love with was not really that tolerant of it, so I turned it off."

80s child stars Corey Feldman and Corey Haim have returned to A&E with a their reality show, The Two Coreys. This second season isn't all fun in games though-the pals have become frenemies and the conversations are heated, coping with serious events from their twisted pasts. Haim says that he used to cut himself and back when he was 14 he was raped Feldman's male friend. Feldman counters that he too was molested. Yowza! We're admittedly glued to our TVs. Check the revealing clip for yourself.

No, it's not out of generosity-Jen and Cameron have coincidentally swapped exes. And it wouldn't be the first time! As we're all well aware, Jen is currently enjoying all that John Mayer (Cameron's fling post-Justin Timberlake) has to offer. Cameron has been spotted shacking up with British model Paul Sculfor, who helped a wounded Jen rebound from Vince Vaughn. Which leads us to… hey wait a minute, Vince Vaughn is the guy who wiped away Cam's tears when she broke up with Jared Leto. Wow, looks like third time's the charm!
Do you think this is a crazy coincidence or is Hollywood way too incestuous? [Defamer]

Frazer HarrisonCall us crazy, but we thought the Hollywood Walk of Fame was prestigious and tough to get onto? This year many new actors are getting stars including Robert Downey Jr, Ralph Fiennes, Sir Ben Kingsley, Cameron Diaz, Hugh Jackman, director Tim Burton, The Village People, Shakira, Felicity Huffman, oh and Tinker Bell.
For a minute we wondered if they meant Paris Hilton's dog. Seriously, not to knock the adorable pixie, but there are real actors out there who might deserve a star more. We're looking forward to next year when Dina Lohan, baby Suri, Spiderman, Kathy Griffin, and some random Baldwin brother are honored. [BBC]
Noel Vasquez/Getty ImagesJust about every movie that Justin Timberlake has starred in has been a box office bomb. Longshot, Model Behavior, On the Live, Edison Force, Alpha Dog, Black Snake Moan, Southland Tales… how many of these have you ever even heard of? His latest venture in the acting world is no different. The Love Guru tanked this weekend, earning the 4th place spot after making a measly $14 million. Get Smart, based on a TV show that last aired 38 years ago, raked in $40 million.
Sure, perhaps Mike Myers has something to do with it… but do you think Justin should stick to making music? [MTV]

A judge has ruled that Christie Brinkley's July 2 divorce trial to Peter Cook will remain open to the public, as she wished, because he believes "open courtrooms, in general and in divorce actions, may provide a basis for societal education." Despite the fact that a law guardian for the two children left some of the evidence revealed at the trial may harm them, Brinkley got her way and the kids-and all of America-can hear the gory details of their split. "Why would anyone be happy about that? It's putting herself in front of her children," says Cook's lawyer. But Brinkley's lawyer countered, "The reality is he put himself way in front of his children and his wife when he made the awful decision to destroy the marriage. The trial will get at the truth, which is very important to Christie."
Didn't anyone ever teach these ladies the phrase, "none of your beeswax?" Apparently Christie and Denise didn't get the memo that divorces aren't intended to make you famous. [People]

Ralph Notaro/Getty ImagesLarry Birkhead paid nearly $3,000 at an auction this weekend to buy the lingerie his ex, Anna Nicole Smith, wore in a Playboy shoot. Birkhead bought the pink bustier and white negligee for their daughter, Dannielynn, in memory of her mom. "I have a lot of history I have to put together that she doesn't really know about," says Larry. "Playboy was such a big part of Anna's career. "You know, it's not something I can show today, but something down the road," he added. "It's not going to be in any bedtime stories anytime soon."Read More »from Anna Nicoleâ€™s ex buys her old lingerie... for her daughter

Eric Ryan/Getty ImagesRead More »from Naomi Campbell: off the hook again!
While supermodel Naomi's erratic and violent behavior keep leaving her in hot water, she manages to escape the pot time and time again. Most recently she was arrested for kicking and spitting at police officers and a flight captain after going "berserk" on a plane when they lost her luggage. She was heard saying on her phone, "They have lost my f****** bags, get me another flight, get the press, get me my lawyer."
The judges ruling? "Whilst we accept that the loss of your suitcase would have been stressful your subsequent behaviour cannot be justified." But no six-months of jail time for Naomi! Just a mere 200 hours of community service and paying roughly $700 the two police officers and the aircraft captain. Do they realize she makes more than that on one trip down the runway? Ugh. When will justice be served! [The Sun]
