Read More »from Kirsten Dunst comes clean: Turns out she was in rehab for depression
Earlier this year, 26-year-old actress Kirsten Dunst disappeared off our radar and reappeared at Cirque Lodge treatment center in Utah. Rumor was she went in for alcohol and substance abuse, as many Hollywood stars do, but today Kirsten admitted the truth. "I didn't go to Cirque Lodge for alcohol abuse or drug abuse, I went there for depression," says Dunst from the set of her new movie, All Good Things. "I was struggling, and I had the opportunity to go somewhere and take care of myself. I was fortunate to have the resources to do it."
Kirsten, who knows many others in the industry suffering from mental illness, was happy to open up and dispel rumors. "There's been a lot of misrepresentation about what is going on in my life, and it's been very painful for my friends and family," she says. "Everyone feels like they have to defend me," says Dunst. "Now that I'm feeling stronger, I was prepared to say something," adding, "Depression is pretty serious and should not be gossiped about."

Strangest career decision: pro hockey player Sean Avery trades in his skates for a "Vogue" internshipBy Joanna Douglas, Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor | Author Blog Posts – Tue, May 27, 2008 8:03 PM EDT
Read More »from Strangest career decision: pro hockey player Sean Avery trades in his skates for a "Vogue" internship
During the off season, New York Ranger Sean Avery made an interesting career move-he's interning at Vogue magazine. "I wanted to immerse myself in fashion," Avery told fashion trade mag Women's Wear Daily. "I couldn't think of a better place to do it than Vogue." Perhaps ex-gf Mary Kate Olsen helped him tap into his metrosexual side.
While Avery is most likely earning minimum wage like the other interns, he will be experiencing perks unlike his predominantly undergrad coworkers. How many interns do you know who may grace the cover of the magazine AND attend the Europe couture shows with legendary editor in chief Anna Wintour? Models, clothes, jet-setting around the world-a lot more glamorous than hitting around a hockey puck. If you ask us, we'd opt for a permanent career swap. [Perez]

Following her divorce from former backup dancer Kevin Federline, Britney Spears dated paparazzo Adnan Ghalib, and now in an act of courtship desperation has taken up with her agent, Jason Trawick. Pics emerged of the couple frolicking on the beach on Britney's infamous Costa Rica trip with Mel Gibson, and this week Jason escorted her to designer Christian Dior's 50th birthday party. Don't get us wrong, we love that people are looking out for Britney and trying to get her career back on track, but we hope they're doing it for the right reasons and not just for their own personal economic benefit.Read More »from Britney Spears: so desperate she can only date her entourage

Read More »from "Living Lohan": Daddy Michael gets in on the crazy action
Lindsay Lohan's was notably absent from her family's reality show that debuted last night. Did you catch it? Embarrassingly enough, it's been added to our dvr queue solely to watch the train wreck that is Dina Lohan, and try and uncover whether or not youngest daughter Ali is the next rehab bound celeb.
Well you'll be delighted to know, no family member goes left behind! Michael Lohan, who is known for going off on his ex-wife and kiddies to the media, has signed on to do a blog for OK! Magazine about Living Lohan following every weekly episode. Who needs Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen?
Check out Michael's first blog entry on Living Lohan:
"EPISODE 1: "MOMMY WILL FIX IT", MAY 26, 2008
Soooooo, you want a comment on the first episode of Living Lohan?
Well, let's see… If I were to look at things from a wordly perspective, I would probably have a lot to say about exploitation, hypocrisy and even deception and maybe at a later date, I might just do so.
For now, let's just say

This week power couples are buying up some serious real estate. First up, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who plan to birth their new twins in France just plunked down $70 million for the estate pictured here, on the French Riviera. Not that they needed the seemingly endless property complete with vineyard and ponies for the expanding Brangelina clan to play around with-they already have homes in Los Angeles and New Orleans! But hey, who's counting.Read More »from Angelina and Beyonce: Nice pile of bricks you got there!
Apparently not Jay-Z and Beyonce, who wed in Jay's downtown NYC apartment, but dropped a load of cash on a home in the suburbs of Scarsdale. It's a 15,000 square feet colonial house on roughly two acres of land. A lot more space than this Manhattan couple-and um, all us New Yorkers-are used to. Lucky dogs! [Perez] [NY Daily News]

Miley Cyrus claims to regret her topless Vanity Fair photo, but you know what? We're not buying it. Not that we blame Miley for going about her business as a pretty,15-year-old celeb of the MySpace generation where girls often pose semi-explicitly and perhaps look way too sexy for their age. But Ms. Cyrus. Did you have a brain fart and forget about the legions of tween Disney devotees watching your every move? We already saw pics of you exposing your bra before the Vanity Fair incident, but these MySpace pics that surfaced this week and were allegedly dubbed "For Nick Jonas's Eyes Only" (her current boy band crush, we presume) say to us someone isn't feeling too guilty about the last batch that surfaced. Or maybe she's just careless.Read More »from Disney star strikes again: Mileyâ€™s Sexy MySpace Photos

Amid their many hotel stays and reports of the large size of John Mayer's… thing, Star magazine is claiming sexual relations between him and Jennifer are getting pretty steamy. "She is having the best sex of her life with John," says a source close to the actress, "and she's loving every minute of it." Who is this source? We'd only tell our closest friends something like that, and we'd hope their first move wouldn't be running to tell Star magazine!
Next up the insider reveals how John thinks Jen's body is a wonderland, by covering her in whipped cream and licking it off, tickling her with feathers and using ice cubs to give her goosebumps. Kinky, yeah, but pretty clichéd, no? "John also likes to keep things interesting with games like role playing, which is new for Jen," says the tattletale. "She was a little resistant at first, but now you couldn't wipe the smile off her face if you tried." Oh but that's not all. Yet another source who spent the night with John concurs he's got all

Ahh happier days. We barely remember thee. Perfectly timed for the premiere of useless "actress" Denise Richards' reality show, the feud between her and ex-husband Charlie Sheen has hit catastrophic levels of crazy. This week, Sheen claimed she sent his fiancée Brooke Mueller an email asking him to be her sperm donor. Furious at the accusation, Denise says it's him that in fact is misbehaving.Read More »from The battle between exes Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen gets uglier!
"Last week, I sent Charlie a text message asking him if he's going to Family Day and letting him know Sam was sick with a cold," says Richards. "His response was, 'I hope you and your worthless retarded father get cancer and join your stupid mom. Rot in heck you [bleeping] w-----.' My mom died of cancer. This is what I deal with on a weekly basis." Damn. She also says the emails sent to Mueller were fakes. "I don't want Charlie's prostitute-tranny-infested sperm. I have two beautiful kids. We'll leave it at that. I am so over him. He's the one who can't move on. He's disgusting and he's hit an

Last night at Diddy's Cannes yacht party, Lindsay and DJ Sam Ronson (rumored lesbian and sister of producer Mark Ronson and designer Charlotte Ronson) looked quite comfortable each other, embracing, holding hands and possibly kissing. Though the two have been hanging out for a long time now, it appears the girls may be closer than they're letting on. "They looked like proper lovebirds," said one partygoer, "And they didn't care who saw them draped over each other. If they are together then it's a nice vision of their love." Rumors have circulated about Sam keeping in touch with Lindsay while she was in rehab via explicit text messages and that Sam had moved in with Lohan to keep her out of trouble. We can't help but notice Linds has a ring on her engagement finger now as well. Hmm…
What do you think after seeing these pictures? Do you think they're just friends or maybe more? [Daily Mail]

Read More »from Umaâ€™s mad as heck and sheâ€™s not going to take this anymore!
When we saw this picture we thought perhaps actress Uma Thurman was reinacting a scene from the film, Network. Turns out Uma was in fact venting her frustrations-about her cell phone company. Her yelling inspired a man in the building across the street to yell about his cable company's lack of HD channels, thus spawning a debate between him and a dude in the apartment below his about satellite versus cable. Uma heard the commotion and snapped back, "Hey, don't ruin my moment with a bunch of bull ----- HD talk. This was about me and my issues with my phone, dingus." Gotta love New Yorkers!
Do you ever get so mad you wanna scream? We do. Check out the clip of Peter Finch delivering his message in the classic movie, Network.
