It’s been a whirlwind few months for Sarah Larson. After crossing paths with professional movie star George Clooney, Larson was able to quit her job as a cocktail waitress/go-go dancer/embarassing-photo-taker. Now, apparently, she lives wherever George does, on hiatus as a Vegas waitress, and, if this brand new New Yorker profile on Clooney is to be believed, checking her e-mail.
As reported in said New Yorker story, Clooney recently received a threatening phone call, a voice mail stating, “Dump the bitch before you’re sorry.” Ms. Larson reacts with little alarm, but does go on to clear the air about her reputation, which has recently come into question after some seriously revealing photos surfaced. “They say that I’m a stripper. There’s a ton of stuff about that. I’ve never been a stripper. You know, just because I’m from Las Vegas I must be a stripper. Because I’m a cocktail server that means I’m an escort.”
Good points all, Sarah. We decided, given her newfound lifestyle, to do a side-by-side comparison of Larson’s life as Professional Bar Candy and life as Professional Arm Candy.

Last night, Ryan, Paula, Randy, and Simon hosted the taping of the annual star-studded fundraiser, Idol Gives Back. Look forward to performances by Mariah Carey, Fergie, Snoop Dogg, Carrie Underwood, and Miley Cyrus. And of course, no charity-driven event would be complete without an appearance by Mr. Brad Pitt.
Jessica Alba celebrated her impending motherhood with a baby shower this weekend, complete with all the Hollywood trimmings: cute location, fancy gifts, classy party favors, famous guests, and Kim Kardashian. Wait, what? Kim was there? Since when did the classy and oh-sotalented Alba become friends with a reality TV sex tape siren? Isn’t that kinda beneath her? Kim of course spoke to E! about the shower, and revealed that she gave Alba gifts from her store, Smooch, and labeled the whole affair “awesome.” You better believe it was awesome – awesome that she got invited! Being down with legit Hollywood actresses is like every wannabes dream. Even Paris can’t accomplish that! Nice work Kim – we’ll see you at the Oscars. [E! Online]
Are Pam Anderson and Criss Angel doing the nasty? This juicy coupling is currently just a buzzed about rumor, but we wouldn’t be surprised. These two are like the King and Queen of Vegas D Listers, and they kind of look perfect next to each other. And doesn’t Pam have a thing for magicians? Since her break up with Rick Solomon she’s been linked with her Vegas “boss” Hans Klok. Still, some eagle-eyed spy spotted Pam and Criss getting cozy at an Elton John concert this weekend! We predict a wedding announcement in 48 hours, tops. [M&C/Perez]
Last night’s Fit Club featured a frenzy of action after Dustin freaked following Harvey’s name-calling rant. You can enjoy extras and deleted scenes of the episode right here, but we’ve included our favorite moment that didn’t make it to air above. In it, our girl Toccara once again sasses the judges about what it means to be large and beautiful, and takes on the obeastity (yes, obeast) crisis, one cast member at a time.
Flavor of Love 2 alum, Charm School winner and our friend Saaphyri has unleashed her latest bound-to-be viral video to promote her Lip Chap line of lip balm. Above, watch the video for “Lip Chap Anthem,” a take-off of Lil Mama’s “Lipgloss” that features rapping from none other than Saaphyri. This one isn’t as provocative as the last, so perhaps it’s aimed at a wider audience. Always thinking business, that’s Saaphyri!
As always, you can pick up Lip Chap of your very own at Saaphyri.com.

They did it! They REALLY did it! Though neither star has confirmed their nuptials, every major press outlet is reporting that Beyonce and Jay-Z have officially become husband and wife. Even Mary J. Blige announced it at her concert on Saturday, so it’s gotta be true! The long-time couple tied the knot at Jay’s Tribeca penthouse after snagging a marriage license earlier in the week. The crowd was small, and guests – including Gwyneth Paltrow and B’s sister Solange – were asked to wear ivory. Thousands of Thai orchids were brought in for the event, and DJ Cassidy kept the attendees on the dance floor late into the night. Jay-Z had to perform over the weekend, and there’s no word of a honeymoon at this time. They’ll probably just end up on a yacht somewhere for a few weeks. You know how they do! Congrats to the happy couple – we hope they make it last. [People]
