David Livingston/Getty ImagesRob Lowe's former nanny quit out of the blue and is now demanding 1.5 million from him, and threatening to reveal loads of family secrets. The actor has filed three separate lawsuits: one against her, one against another former nanny and a third against his former chef who he claims had sex on his bed and stole prescription drug. Is there no screening process for these people? So in addition to the lawsuits, what would any celebrity do to retaliate for instant gratification? Publish his ex-employee's text messages thus completely tainting her image, of course. Read the greedy employee's embarrassing text resignation to Lowe's wife after the jump!

These days celebs are adopting children faster than they're buying handbags. Surely there's no questioning how charitable their efforts are in placing these young ones in safe and loving homes, but we can't help but almost feel a race between some ladies to prove their devotion, specifically towards reaching out and adopting from foreign countries. Madonna had a total head start on her brood giving birth to daughter Lourdes in 1996. Years later came Rocco, with husband Guy Ritchie, and most recently adopted Malawian David.Read More »from Adopted baby count! Angelina: 3 Madonna: seeking 2
Now comes word that she's looking to adopt a girl from India, adding one more to her roost. Not to be outdone, Angelina adopted Maddox, Zahara, birthed Brad Pitt's baby, Shiloh, then adopted Pax, only to become pregnant with twins. Ladies, we hate to break it to you, but you weren't pioneers in this area. Tom Cruise and ex-wife Nicole Kidman share two adopted children, as do Steven Spielberg and wife Kate Capshaw. Rosie O'Donnell and her wife Kelli Carpenter have
Who remembers the hit reality show Paradise Hotel? It aired on Fox in the summer of 2003 and followed a group of hot singles living in a luxurious island resort who had to strategize and couple up with roommates of the opposite sex. The goal: to try to stay in the hotel the longest for a massive cash prize. The catch: every other week one contestant is odd man out and gets sent home only to be replaced by a new cast member.
With tropical drinks, days spent entirely in bikinis and shared hotel rooms all set on a beautiful backdrop, the show is probably as close to a documented spring break as you can imagine, and trashy as that is, I can't get enough! So you can imagine how thrilled I was when the show finally returned to MyNetworkTV and Fox Reality earlier this year. Sadly, this Read More »from Guilty Pleasures: "Paradise Hotel"
* 11 bodygaurds around the perimeter of her table so mere mortals can't watch her eat
* Every penthouse on the floor for ultimate privacy
* Installation of a $20,000 gym next to her hotel suite
* 20 humidifiers around her bed
* Someone to carry her so she can wear stilettos at all times
* A private plane or car for her pooches
* Sound bite hint: "Honestly, I don't even have birthdays. I call them anniversaries."

Frank Micelotta / Getty ImagesRemember how Carrie Bradshaw felt after getting dumped by Jack Burger via Post-It on Sex and the City? Modern times have upped the ante with text message breakups, and country crooner Carrie Underwood is one victim to fall prey, thanks to ex-boyfriend, Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford. "It was completely mutual," she told Extra. "We broke up over text so...it's like 'peace out.' " We can't decide if this is harsh or hilarious, but would put money on the text ending with a "TTYL." [People]
Are Hollywood romances a joke? Would you break up with someone via text message?

If you're anything like us, you have boxes full of mixtapes your old boyfriends made for you, ones you swapped with friends, or ones you made for yourself to play in your car's tapedeck. Sadly those days are gone, along with leggings and Madonna (oh wait, nevermind....). Keep up one of your favorite rituals with Muxtape, a newly launched site that lets you upload MP3s and send your mixtape to loved ones immediately without even so much as a fee for a blank cassette. If you want to do things more the old fashion way, write your own liner notes in this adorable little device which looks like a tape but has a 64 MB USB stick cleverly hidden inside. Thank goodness for technology.Read More »from Unwilling to let mixtapes die, weâ€™ll send one virtually
Do you know when the last time was that we were excited about a movie being remade? Never! Thus the reason why we wanted to cry in despair when we discovered you've given the green light to remakes of classic films like Nightmare on Elm Street, The Birds, Rosemary's Baby and Barbarella as well as more mediocre flicks like Hellraiser, Prom Night and Short Circuit that we, quite frankly, could've lived without the first time around.
Why do you feel the need to torture our eyes and over-saturate theaters with throwaway remakes? It seems like your writers are bankrupt of original ideas and you're looking to cash in. We're not stupid! Or are we? Upon further research, us moviegoers regrettably spent over $170 million on the dual franchise collaboration (read: epic piece of trash), Alien vs. Predator. Congrats guys! You duped us.
Big budgets and big name actors helped catapult the new versions, but you can't win us over on that alone. Tim Burton took great liberties in Read More »from Dear Hollywood: Please stop with the remakes
The Jackson family reunites for a new reality show AKA another reason we will feel guilty for watching TVBy Joanna Douglas, Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor | Author Blog Posts – Fri, Apr 4, 2008 9:06 PM EDT
Dave Hogan/Getty ImagesIn addition to Michael Jackson almost losing his beloved Neverland Ranch came reports that the Jackson family were all moving into a compound in England. The reason: an Osbournes-style reality show is in the works. Call us crazy, but we feel the family-reality-show genre lends itself more towards a family with kids rather than adults with surgically "enhanced" faces and slews of lifelong emotional issues, but producers have worked out the details: Tito Jackson will be hanging around the house while parents and siblings Michael, Janet, and Jermaine will fly in to share in the love (or drama).Read More »from The Jackson family reunites for a new reality show AKA another reason we will feel guilty for watching TV
"They can't wait to get here. They love North Devon and they'll be moving into the rented house during the first week of May," said Tito's bodyguard Matt Fiddes. "The TV people will follow them from California to Appledore and make a documentary on how they settle in." Not to be mean, but this sounds like a train wreck. However, the chances of a LaToya cameo is enough to keep us tuned in.

Read More »from From Anne Hathaway to Kate Moss: ladies who can't stop dating losers!
Evan Agostini/Getty ImagesActress Anne Hathaway couldn't have a more squeaky-clean reputation, but her man is bringing her down. NYC police arrested real estate developer Raffaello Follieri yesterday after bouncing a $250,000 check to a PR firm. Apparently his account balance wasn't even close to covering it. He better get out the yellow pages, because he'll need a new publicist to field this negative attention! In addition, Follieri has been spotted out on the town many times with other women, including a Roberto Cavalli model, and last summer was sued by supermarket billionaire Ron Burkle for allegedly stealing $55 million and using it for private jets, a private chef and loads of designer shopping. Anne, you're an amazing woman -- how long until you ditch this guy? Unfortunately, in Hollywood it's common for leading ladies to date unworthy men. [TMZ]
Other women notorious for dating undeserving, dishonorable dudes:
