Linds & Sam Have Three-Way (Dinner) With Lily Allen


According to reports over the weekend, the rumored lesbian relationship between Lindsay Lohan and her constant companion Samantha Ronson was over. PerezHilton reported the couple broke up after a fight at a restaurant, and Lindsay spent Sunday by the pool at the Roosevelt Hotel while her things were being moved out of Ronson’s place. Bummer.

But! There’s hope. Yesterday Linds received a visit from her main woman on the set of her new movie Labor Pains, and it looks like all it took was a peace offering of Lindsay’s most prized posessions — a pack of Marlboros and a Red Bull — for the two to get back together.

Linds and Sam then met a pink-haired Lily Allen for dinner, probably to discuss philosophy or the recent rumblings in the Democratic party, or maybe how each will do their part to confuse the hell out of the international gossip press by upping their antics.


Xtina Gets Dirrrty n’ Drunk During “Mommy-Daddy Time”


We’ve been seeing an awful lot of Christina Aguilera lately, and it looks like she’s back to her old Xtina ways. Several times in the past few weeks the new mom has been spotted tottering out of clubs, in some cases being lead out of a bar by her hubby Jordan Bratman, or a pal. But the new mom is coming to her own defense, telling Access Hollywood that she needs to blow off some grown-up steam.

“I spend all day with my son and once in a while if I want to go out and have a mommy-daddy night with my husband, I am more than allowed to do that.” We imagine a mommy-daddy night might entail drinking a lot of adult juice, having a tantrum on the dancefloor, then someone driving her Big Wheel home. Then she and daddy will get ready for bed by taking their clothes off and hugging in various positions.


Usher Gets Icy On Chili


Everybody knows Usher‘s a happily married family man (as you can learn from several of the tracks off Here I Stand). But we also know that a while back, Ush and Chili were pretty serious. Usher even bought the TLC hottie a rock, but broke it off before the two were engaged. A few months back Chili confessed to the world that Usher was “the one that got away. I love him very much and I will always love him. I don’t know how you love someone that deeply and just stop loving them.”

Recently, Usher was asked about his ex’s remarks in an interview with Usher had somem rather harsh words for Chili:

I mean, I think it’s a little unrealistic, I’m married [laughs], I’m not a boy. It’s been three years past, you know? But we all have unrealistic goals too. Like shoot, I will always forever love Katie Holmes and Halle Berry. I don’t feel anyway about it. It does appear maybe to be a plug for something. She got a record coming or something?



K-Fed Named Father of the Year


Leave it to Vegas, that pillar of responsibility, to go anointing Kevin Federline as the Father of the Year, and just in time for Father’s Day. In an obvious move to boost promotion for their club, Prive Las Vegas has decided to honor the father of four.

In another example of a completely unqualified parents receiving honors for parenting, Dina Lohan was named “Top Mom,” by Long Island-based charity the Mingling Moms Organization. To all you parents out there who are making your children eat right, get to bed on time and do their homework, take note: the way to be the best parent you can be is through the public humiliation of your ex-spouse, imparting hollow values and foisting your children onto reality television.


Leona Lewis Refuses To Show Off Her “Bits”


This month, Blender magazine caught up with the industry-saving pop star Leona Lewis, our very own You Oughta Know Artist. We already knew we loved the “Bleeding Love” singer, but we found out a few other details that only further cemented her staying power as the pop star of our hearts. Not only did she grow up tough in an East London where her family struggled to make ends meet, she hardly drinks (“I’ve tasted champagne, which is gross. And I tasted wine, which I don’t like.”) and she always wears undies: “I don’t wear little miniskirts and low cut tops. If you want to show your bits off, it’s up to you.”


Clay Aiken’s Four-Point Plan to Being a Dad

clay_aikenYesterday news broke that American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken served as a sperm donor for friend and music producer Jaymes Foster. Foster, who is due in August, is the sister of David Foster, music producer and longtime friend of Aiken. We’re sure Aiken’s going to be a great dad to the little one, and able to impart tons of helpful advice that he’s picked up along the way. We’ve compiled a bit of the fatherly wisdom Aiken will surely pass on to the littlest Claymate.

Pancake, It’s Not What’s For Breakfast: Male or female, gay or straight — why limit yourself in the amount of makeup you wear out of the house? You always want to look coordinated, so why not have your face match your hair.

Feathered, Highlighted and Banged: The only thing that gets as much attention as a good haircut…is a bad one.

Creeping People Out: Sure, Clay’s probably a totally nice guy, but his songs are downright terrifying. A few lines from Clay’s hit “Invisible” will undoubtedly get the littlest Aiken whatever they want on the playground.

Nick Hogan’s Jailhouse Convos Caught on Tape

Nick Hogan in court.

Looks like Hulk Hogan‘s son Nick Bollea is having a tough time in jail. According to a recently leaked phone conversation between Bollea and his parents, Nick is not too happy with his new digs. Given that the 17-year-old is a minor, Bollea is kept apart from the general prison population, and the isolation has started to wear on him. After a tearful conversation with his mother, who states she thinks the sentencing too harsh, Nick gets on the phone with his father, and the two move on to plotting Nick’s next career move, a reality television show with the working title of “New Nick”, rather than the 500 hours of community service Bollea will be performing following his 8-month jail stint.

See — we’d never lead you astray. If you still haven’t heard her, we’re offering you a free MP3 of her song “Mercy,” which she recorded live at Royal Albert Hall in London. Check it out.


Mayer A Cheap Jerk, Great In Bed

mayerLooks like flying to Miami and sending Jennifer Aniston flowers has John Mayer a little hard up for cash. Yesterday, while shopping at a camera store in Los Angeles (no doubt to create some hilarious commentary on the paparazzi by taking pictures of them taking pictures) Johnny charged a fan $10 to pose for a picture. Fan, whoever you are, there are much better things to spend $10 on.

Elsewhere in the world, John’s lady friend Jennifer Aniston is allegedly telling anyone who’ll listen that John is infinitely better in the sack than Brad Pitt ever was. “Jennifer is calling John the best ever lover,” said the undoubtedly reliable source to the National Enquirer.
