  • Hold a suitcase, make a lot of money

    This is hardly groundbreaking news, but we just can't get past it… and are praying it's not true. Over the weekend TMZ spotted Claudia Jordan, one of the Deal or No Deal girls, at the Young Hollywood Mansion Party and she drunkenly confessed to making six figures. (!!!) Our first question is, just how desperate is TMZ that they're not only able to identify one of the show's case holders, but also to try and interview her. But really, if this is true, sign us up for the gig. We can learn to like sequins if we must. [TMZ]

  • The Hills star Lauren Conrad keeps getting burned

    Reality star and new clothing designer Lauren Conrad has been let down by one friend after another. "I want to say I can always trust my good friends that I've had forever, but at the same time, some of my oldest friends have betrayed me," the Hills star told Us Weekly. The latest scandals stem from ex-boyfriend Brody Jenner announcing he had a new girl just days after LC bounced for Paris and best friend/roommate Audrina making up with LC's arch nemesis, Heidi Montag. Not to mention sex tape rumors. "At this point, I have to question every person that wants to have a relationship with me, whether it's a friendship or a romantic relationship," says Lauren.. "Audrina has to remind me that she's not someone who's going to betray me." Or you could just find out for yourself by watching next week's episode! Truth be told, LC, you're not special. You're just witnessing every horrible moment on camera.

  • Lindsay’s Lesbian Love Triangle

    It seems that potentially reformed party girl Lindsay Lohan has found a new way to get attention-or two new ways. It seems that Courtenay Semel, daughter of former Yahoo! chairman Terry Semel, and DJ Samantah Ronson, daughter of writer Ann Dexter-Jones and band manager Laurence Ronson have been battling for her affection. Lindsay, of course, is loving every minute of it. "Sam and Courtenay fight for Lindsay's attention," a source tells Star. "Both have told her they love her." Sam has a leg up in the competition as she and Linds have been pals since 2004. Star reported that when Lindsay was in rehab in 2007, she sent Sam love letters via her MySpace page. "Your [sic] all I have to live for babe," Lindsay, now 21, wrote. "I want to marry you and have children with you. I need you to live!"But someone is avoiding the issue here-is Lindsay really a lesbian or just an attention w----?

  • Kate Moss engaged to another grimy rocker

    British supermodel Kate Moss has dated a long line of "bad boys" from Johnny Depp to Lemonheads frontman Evan Dando to Baby shambles frontman/drug addict Pete Doherty. So excuse us for yawning over the news that the not-quite-as-waifish-or-stylish-anymore model is now engaged to The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince. Dude even looks like Doherty. Paparazzi have snapped them all over London biting and licking each others necks, dubbing them "vampire" lovers. Let's hope there's less sharing blood going on this time around.

  • Brad and Angelina pregnant with twins—a boy and a girl. Life is perfect.

    A few months ago Brad Pitt once again knocked up Angelina Jolie and now we're told the double baby bump contains one child of each sex! A source tells In Touch, "Because [Angelina] took fertility treatments to help her ovulate, her babies are fraternal.. They're ecstatic. She can't wait." Hollywood power couple's brood will now be up to six-three adopted and three from natural birth. We can't wait to see them strolling around in matching his and hers Bugaboo strollers. Angie plans to give birth to the twins in France. While her constant moving around and hectic life used to annoy Brad, a pal claims he's just smitten with the whole deal. "He told her he loves going along with her crazy plans. He's learned to live with a messy house with toys everywhere." Of course he is. Whew. Sorry for the interruption-feel free to go about your less than perfect lives.

  • Fergie, are those lovely lady lumps or a baby bump?

    We started to notice a little pooch at last month's Grammy awards, and now Fergie has been photographed exiting a sushi spot with fiancé Josh Duhamel looking a little plumper than usual. Will she be the next to join Hollywood's bulging bellies? Only time-or a confession-will tell.
    Poll: Is Fergie pregnant or just a wee bit bloated?
    1) Yes, there's definitely Black Eyed Pea in a pod
    2) Nah, stop jumping to conclusions.

  • Shia LeBeouf is a wanted man!

    Disturbia and soon-to-be Indiana Jones star received an unlawful smoking citation on February 18 and had a scheduled court date yesterday. Now, since dude was a no-show, a $1000 bench warrant has been issued for his arrest! While we're not ones to advocate smoking, we have to admit this is a pretty ridiculous charge for a 21-year-old celeb. What's the matter? Has Hollywood run out of DUIs?

  • Spitzer’s hooker was a Girl Gone Wild—shocking, we know

    This week infamous perv Joe Francis publicly offered call girl Ashley Dupre $1 million to make an appearance in his infamous video series, Girls Gone Wild. But then, upon second thought, Joe thinks… hold up… didn't she already take her top off for me in Miami while celebrating her 18th birthday back in 2003? "It's kind of like finding a winning lottery ticket in the cushions of your couch," Francis told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The footage is already up on the website, with a free sampling on the front page that claims, "Ashley rode the GGW bus long before she rode the former Governor of New York." The rest is available with a $29.87 monthly subscription. "We were surprised to find Ms. Dupre in our archives," Francis said. "She's like a cloud that keeps circling back over the landscape.." Ladies, take heed: Girls Gone Wild might feel like a good idea at the time, but wait until you're a famous prostitute who stands to earn $1 million for taking it off on camera. Sucks that you

  • Maxim declares Sarah Jessica Parker “unsexiest woman” and it hits a nerve

    Sarah Jessica Parker, the Sex and the City star known more for her fashion sense than her pretty face has been voted the "unsexiest woman in the world" by Maxim magazine. Ouch-that's gotta hurt. SJP speaks out to Grazia magazine about her-and husband Matthew Broderick's-reaction to this announcement. "It's so brutal in a way, so filled with rage and anger," SJP told the magazine. "It upset him [Matthew], because it has to do with his judgment too." Other ladies up for the title were Amy Winehouse, Madonna, Britney Spears and Grey's Anatomy's Sandra Oh. Poor SJP, who stars in commercials, has her own fragrance and clothing line was likened by the magazine to a horse. "Do I have big fake boobs, Botox and big lips? No. Do I fit some ideals and standards of some men writing in a men's magazine? Maybe not. Am I really the unsexiest women in the world? Wow! It's kind of shocking... It's condemnation, it's insane. What can I do? I guess you can't please all people." While we understand her

  • Drew Lachey does more than just Dance With the Stars

    Drew Lachey-who was once in the group 98 degrees with brother Nick-may be a married father, but that didn't stop him from hooking up with his Dancing with the Stars partner, Cheryl Burke on their nationwide tour. "They didn't go very far to cover it up," one tour insider says of the Season Two champions. "Cheryl was constantly draped all over Drew. They held hands, had their legs intertwined and were always touching inappropriately." The worst part? Apparently on January 22, Cheryl's then-boyfriend Matthew Lawrence (brother of Joey!) walked into her dressing room and caught the pair having oral sex. The next day, a panicked Drew had to be restrained in the parking lot when boarding the tour bus. "If you talk about this, I'll bury you Matt. I'll bury you Joey. I'm serious I will hurt you," yelled Drew, who now stands to lose his marriage to his high-school sweetheart. Matthew told Star, "There are too many things going on. I can't talk about it," and lawyers for both Drew and Cheryl
