“I understand that I f***ed up and I understand that I am f***ing crazy,” says Irv Gotti in our final installment of our Gotti’s Word feature. Below, instead of blocks of commentary, you’ll find straight-up Q&A with Irv to tie up all the loose ends of Gotti’s Way. Below, you’ll find Irv’s final thoughts on his situation with Deb and the kids, his relationship philosophy, what it was like to film a reality show and whether divorce with Deb is more of a reality after what went down on his show’s season finale.
Reflecting on his show’s run, Irv tells us, “It’s good therapy to look at yourself and see how stupid you are.” Is he right? You be the judge.
The Entertainer Turned Off Posted at 9:55PM EST
New York called the Entertainer a “loser” and promptly sent him home. Was that too harsh, or a good call?
Were you stoked for yesterday’s episode of The Shot? In the last installment, the contestants were asked to capture sensuality in texture, which meant drenching each other in food, and photographing models who, for the most part, were only wearing makeup. All over their bodies. Challenging. And therein lies the core of the show, which pits 10 up-and-coming fashion photographers against each other for the chance to win $100,000, a spread in Marie Claire, and a Victoria’s Secret campaign — all the while being judged by a he-Tyra with an Australian accent, Russell James. Catch up on what you missed. Check the recap below.
In solidarity with the current writers strike plaguing Hollywood, the legions of cute creatures you’ve come to love on YouTube are apparently now on strike. Gasp away, my bored at work friends. Not only is your beloved Office gone, but you will no longer be able to watch that cat play piano while you’re supposed to be doing your boss’ expense reports. Yes, this strike is ruining everything. Everything!
After ending an press event when a teen newspaper intern asked Montel Williams a seemingly thoughtful question about the ramifications of his free drug prescription program on pharmaceutical companies, the talk show host (and Multiple Sclerosis advocate) later threatened the young scribe at his hotel. One of the web producers for the paper described the incident: “As we were preparing to film, Montel walked up with his bodyguard and got in Courtney Scott‘s face pointing his finger telling her ‘Don’t look at me like that. Do you know who I am? I’m a big star, and I can look you up, find where you live and blow you up’…At this time he was randomly pointing at all of us.”
Someone should probably tell Montel that you don’t need to be a famous to look people up – or blow them up either, sadly. It’s called internet stalking, and anyone with a couple free minutes and little to no dignity can do it very quickly (trust us!). Also, we need to add a pic of Montel next to the definition of “big star” in our mental dictionary. Tara Reid is currently holding down that spot, but we guess the standards just keep getting lowered! [MSNBC]
And now a question from the judges: Miss Puerto Rico, if you were going to fake some attack so you could demonstrate your triumph over adversity, how would you do it, and why?
Why, I’d concoct an elaborate story about someone stealing my costumes and make-up, and then squirting pepper spray on them – this would of course cause me to suffer from a horrible cases of hives. Why? To make me look like a trooper who can handle any situation, and help me win the entire contest. That’s what I’d do!
That’s just the sort of genius plot authorities think occurred at last week’s pageant, after no traces of the self-defense spray were found on clothes belonging to Miss Puerto Rico Universe Ingrid Marie Rivera. The winning lady and pageant heads claimed that a mysterious party-pooper “had laced her makeup and doused her clothing with a chemical they believed to be pepper spray.” The scandal came after Rivera reportedly had her gowns, makeup and credit cards stolen. Now all fingers point directly, back to the recently crowned, beauty, and police say, “I guess she has a lot of explaining to do.”
It’s a good thing she knows how to answer those soft ball pageant questions! [Us]
Movie premieres, awards shows, benefit concerts, and plain old clubbin’ – even though most of us are at home, the beautiful peeps are living it up somewhere. Last Night’s Pics puts you in touch with all the action.

Did you go to the theater a lot in 2007? Were you happy to plunk down $10 and change for the summer blockbusters, the foreign indies, or George Clooney’s Oscar traps? If so, you might have accrued a certain specialization in movie trivia. We want to find out how well you know your stuff. All month long, World of Pop’s Juggernaut quiz will be about 2007 films. And it’s hard. No question about it. If you didn’t see Superbad, steered clear of Transformers and forgot all about Captain Jack Sparrow . . . well, you might be able to glean the answers at VH1.com. There’s a new question every day, prizes at the end, and the thrill of conquest in between. For example, check this sample question:
Britney Spears is 26-years old ya’ll! What will the next year of her life bring – a changed pop star or more of the same of sh*t? We’re guessing by the way she went out on the town to celebrate her big day – decked out in a choker necklace from 1992, a tight dress that pinched all the wrong places and a broken shoe – that twenty-six is gonna be a delicious disaster for B. We can’t wait!
The singer crashed a party hosted by Sharon Stone in Bel Air for Scandinavian designers, and turned the fete into her own birthday bash, complete with cake, champagne, and the world’s most atrocious white fur coat. Brit hit up the gift suite and snagged $30,000 worth of furs, diamond jewels worth $10,000 and some sunglasses with price tags in the thousands. Free! Happy birthday indeed. Around 11:30 PM the biggest present of all arrived when Paris Hilton sashayed her way through the paparazzi. The former BFFs headed back to the Four Seasons hotel for some celebrating and champagne. We can only imagine that the two giggled and toasted to a new year full of botched lip injections. Happy birthday indeed, Brit!
