After Wednesday’s announcement of a third Rock of Love season, we were curious about how Bret’s breakup with Ambre went down. So, we called her up to ask her about why things didn’t work out. Did they see each other enough? Is Bret afraid of commitment? Is it just that finding love on reality TV is impossible? Ambre shares some insight (and zero resentment!) below…
Last night was our 2008 tribute to the Who, and it rocked. Oh…you didn’t watch it? Busy doing laundry or listening to Coldplay? Well save whatever lame excuses you have to offer, and start thanking us, because we’ve got every performance from last night’s show right here. Just click on the above video to watch Rainn Wilson‘s “special” “Pinball Wizard” tribute, performances from Tenacious D, Foo Fighters, Incubus and Pearl Jam, and of course, the rock icons themselves the Who. No need to thank us. Just watch.
It’s over – the divorce drama and custody battle between Britney Spears and her ex Kevin Federline that has dragged for about a year now has finally ended. The end result? Kevin gets FULL CUSTODY of their sons Sean and Jayden. Britney will maintain her current visitation rights of one overnight and two visits each week.
You may recall that the couple started with a 50-50 split, which quickly turned into Kevin having sole custody of the kids while Brit hung with shady dudes like Sam Lutfi and suffered from various melt downs and bad weaves. Though they’ve successfully kept their custody case out of court for the time being, but the judge can always change things up, which means more drama for years to come. [People]
With all the frequent obsession over those puny, perfect Jolie-Pitt kids, it’s easy to overlook the other tots tumbling around Hollywood in their crocs and thousand dollar strollers. And while we’ve been distracted by what’s coming out of Angie’s womb in France, Jennifer Garner has been walking around farmer’s markets in Hollywood knocked up! The fresh-faced Mrs. Affleck is five months along, news that was inexplicably confirmed by her former Alias costar Victor Garber. Ben and Jen have already proven their skill at popping out adorable spawn, as demonstrated by their adorable daughter Violet, who looks refreshingly like any other kid you’d see on the playground guzzling organic carrot juice. We welcome another precious Affleck tot to ogle at in just 4 months. Also, we hope this means those divorce rumors were bogus. Right? [Us]
Not near a television? You should be, as Rock Honors: The Who is going down right now, featuring every rock stars’ rock star. Don’t worry though — we’ve got some highlights from the show below. Check it out and tell us which one is your favorite!
It’s not until you hear them play a Who song that you realize Pearl Jam take so much from the band– and on “Love Reign O’er Me,” they give it back. The track’s a frequent cover in the grunge godfathers’ set, and its obvious why: Vedder wails through the song, pleading, as the rest of the band shreds to keep up.
It wouldn’t be a party if Boy in the Bubble and Flaming Lips frontmanWayne Coyne didn’t roll around in the audience in his big inflatable ball for a while, getting the crowd appropriately amped as they play the beginnings of “See Me, Feel Me” (which Wayne told us before the show was a personal favorite) before launching into a searing medley from Tommythat includes “Pinball Wizard.” To find out what else the Oklahoma psych-rockers played, check the clip above.
For Tenacious D frontman Jack Black to call the Who “the greatest band of all time” is a pretty big deal, as that’s usually a title he saves for his own band. Watch the merry pranksters strum through a fun version of “Squeezebox” in the clip above.
Is recently announced VH1 Rock of Love: Charm School tutor Sharon Osbourne already practicing transforming ladies into prim and proper rock goddesses by giving her very own daughter Kelly a makeover? The formerly frumpy rock spawn (“before” image) debuted a new sleek and slender look (“after” image) while walking through NYC. Will Sharon be able to work her magic on the bad girls from the first two seasons of Rock of Love? [Image: Splash News]
Tonight’s Rock Honors: The Who show promises to be full of all types of stars — from rock to reality — and we happen to know a few of your favorites attended. Rock of Love 2‘s Ambre and I Love New York‘s Mr. Boston were on hand for the festivities. Check out who else was at the show, and of course, watch what went down when the Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam and Incubus honored the Who.

Lindsay Lohan’s lesbotastic relationship with DJ Samantha Ronson is no summer fling.
“Their relationship is totally genuine. And they’re just so sweet together,” model Daisy Lowe, girlfriend of Sam’s brother Mark, told The Sun. The fabulous foursome even went on a double date together. “Sam is an amazing girl. The four of us had a brilliant time – a real laugh.”
Lucky for LiLo, she has already passed the family test. Sam’s brother loves her! “Mark totally approves. But we’re not going to double-date again – I mean, would you go on a date with your brother?” Earlier this year, Sam passed the test with Lindsay’s family with flying colors. “She’s great – and she’s the best spinner around,” Lindsay’s mother Dina Lohan said.
As far as future double dates, Daisy explains, “It’s just a bit weird and anyway they live in LA, so it’s kinda difficult. But I’d definitely love to see them again.”
Maybe difficult to double date with Daisy and Mark, but easy to get married! Gay marriage is now legal in California, girls! These two lovebirds have had quite the whirlwind romance, from canoodling on Diddy’s yacht in Cannes, hitting clubs together while Samantha deejays, and partying at Lindsay’s 22nd birthday party at Teddy’s at the Roosevelt Hotel, which was also attended by VH1 Rock of Love’s Daisy De la Hoya. These two are always by each other’s sides, and now that both families have given them the thumbs up – is marriage around the corner?
The big show happens tonight at 9/8c, and we hope you’re ready. You’ll need some Union Jack flags to drape yourselves in, some guitars to smash and obviously, the ability to rock out. At Saturday night’s taping, Adam Sandler (he of Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore fame) was kind enough to introduce the Who, and who knew Adam had some chops himself? Watch the video above to see his humorous “Magic Bus” tribute to the band, and then watch as the Who, Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam tear up the stage. To see who else was there, check out our backstage and after-party shots.
Wow, this sounds like almost as good a plan as fake-boning Alex Rodriguez for a sh*tload of publicity! Brit‘s already shot an appearance in Madonna‘s upcoming video, and apparently the aging pop queen wants her to show up on stage in one of her shows. But that’s not all! Madge reportedly is trying to orchestrate an appearance by Justin Timberlake as well (they collaborated on her album Hard Candy). A source reveals that, “Madonna is always trying to raise the bar and Britney and Timberlake on the same stage would be perfect.”
Madonna’s not trying to raise the bar, she’s realized her career is faltering finally, at fifty, and she’s using other people’s drama to keep her star from dying out. Why not just put out a good album again?
