According to a post on Oh No They Didn’t, MTV sent out a casting call for A Shot At Love 3. Tila fans won’t fail to notice that her name is conspicuously missing from the dispatch: “MTV is gearing up for another round of drama for season 3 of the scandalous groundbreaking smash hit series A Shot at Love. Wouldn’t it read A Shot At Love 3 With Tila Tequila if MTV’s sex kitten was set to return for another season of swapping spit and eating pig vaginas followed by inevitable rejection?
Usher has gone crawling back to his mama like the baby that he is. The singer, who was last heard cooing about banging us in a club, has booted celeb manager Benny Medina and rehired his mother Jonnetta Patton, who helped her son sell 1.1 million copies of his album Confessions in its first week.

New York was interviewed last week on Los Angeles’ KTLA, and true to what she told us in our recent interview with her, it’s clear that she’s dropped a few pounds since filming New York Goes to Hollywood (or, at least, since filming the first episode). She also seems to be restraining her boobs, which is new! Video below:

This week’s challenge is all about swimming. See which team can save lives. Check a sneak peek of Sunday’s episode, and tell the world which player will be going home.
You may have noticed that Laverne, I Want to Work for Diddy‘s transsexual competitor who’s quickly stealing America’s collective heart, lists her occupation as “hostess.” What you probably don’t know is that her venue of hostessing is (or maybe was) none other than Lucky Cheng‘s, the tranny-friendly New York chop suey joint. One ohnotheydidt contributor posted pictures from her visit to Cheng’s in January, when Laverne played host. And that’s not all she played! There are many provocative shots at the site, but this one’s our favorite:
If Laverne puts, like, a fifth of the effort that exhibits in these pictures into her time on Diddy, she’s got the competition in the bag. [ONTD]
Oh the perils of CCing all the wrong people. What should have been a private e-mail exchange on June 25 between a prominent Los Angeles business man/party king and a Beverly Hills madam arranging for sex is making the rounds among the L.A. party circuit. Nearly 50 powerful men are shaking in their boots, because the madam appears to have exposed what may be her client list by CCing instead of BCCing the e-mail.

Last week, we posted audio of a recent chat we had with New York. For those who missed it or couldn’t listen to it, we have the transcript below, along with some material that didn’t make it to the audio piece. In addition to her breakup with Tailor Made, Flav and Hollywood, VH1′s HBIC opens up about the pitfalls of fame, a chance encounter with Angela Bassett, her dog Princess and what she thinks of I Love Money. Did you know that she got her own spin-off because of science? Science!
Instead of the usual mix of deleted scenes and episode-specific commentary, the online extras for Luke’s Parental Advisory are a series of video blogs from Luke and his family. The most telling one this week comes from his daughter, Lacresha, who describes what life was like before Luke became engaged to his fiancé, Kristen. In the video above, Lacresha reveals, “I used to always just see the girlfriends come and the girlfriends go,” and adds that she and Luther both thought that Kristen wouldn’t last. “My gosh, when is she gonna leave?” she wondered. In the end, she says that she’s happy for her dad and Kristen, but the subtext is far juicier than standard well-wishing.
Danity Kane’s Aubrey O’Day and socialite-turned scarecrow-turned actress Lydia Hearst put on quite a show last night in NYC. True attraction? Or are these two desperate for attention?
Last week, we presented New York on the record talking about her breakup with I Love New York 2 winner Tailor Made. Tailor Made, in turn, has spoken out with his perception of what went wrong. As he told SOHH.com:
“We’re just very different people. The same things that I’m very attracted to in her are the same things that made a relationship with her difficult. She’s very emotionally volatile, very passionate, which is great but at the same time that can present a challenge in a relationship. We’re good friends. She’s definitely a sweetheart but I just think we weren’t very compatible. I still wish her the best and I think she’s going to be very successful with her acting career.”
So there you have it: irreconcilable differences. That’s it? For something involving New York, this seems decidedly non-dramatic. It’s almost a let-down. We’ll get to watch their breakup play out this season on New York Goes to Hollywood. Fingers crossed for broken dishes! [SOHH.com]
