We’ve loved Brooke Hogan for a long time. She’s adorable, irreverent, and a family girl – but we mostly adore her for fearlessly embracing fashion. The super-mature singer recently spoke with Us Weekly about her family’s ongoing troubles, and had this to say about her mom’s recent tryst with a man half her age:
“Honestly, I don’t know what to say because I can’t relate to her right now. I’m extremely shocked. I know if I was 48-years-old, I wouldn’t date a 19-year-old. I just don’t feel it’s her. And through all this stuff, I really need my mom, and she’s doing her own thing. I don’t talk to her anymore. I see her at the jail visiting Nick and she asks me why. I say, ‘I don’t condone what you’re doing. I’m on my path, and you’re on your path.’ I told her, ‘I’d love to have you in my life, to see you and talk to you, but the kind of things you’re surrounding yourself with, it doesn’t make sense to me.”

Is there anything more enjoyable to read than a Kanye West blog post freak out? Yeah, we thought not. The latest rant from your favorite fashion/music/ridiculous sunglasses icon about criticism from fans that he went on too late at Bonnaroo a couple of weeks ago is perhaps his finest work. A masterpiece of crazy blogging! Amazingly, this is just a tiny bit of the 700+ word rant. Get ready to be blinded by explanation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am sick of negative people who just sit around trying 2 plot my downfall… Why???? I understand if people don’t like me because I like me or if people think tight clothes look gay or people say I run my mouth to much, But this Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I’ve ever had in my life. This is the most offended I’ve ever been… this is the maddest I ever will be. I’m typing so f*cking hard I might break my f*cking Mac book Air!!!!!!!! Call me any name you want…. arrogant, conceited, narcissistic, racist, metro, f*g whatever you can think of…. BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN’T GIVE MY ALL! NEVER SAY I DIDN’T GIVE MY ALL!…I HAVE A F*CKING LIGHT SHOW DUMB ASS, IT’S NOT CALLED GLOW IN THE DARK FOR NO REASON SQUID BRAINS! MY PEOPLE WORKED OUT A COMPROMISED STAGE PLOT AND A 3AM TIME SLOT AND I AGREED. FAST FOWARD TO THE DAY OF THE SHOW. MY PRODUCTION MANAGER TRIED TO LOAD IN FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE I WENT ON STAGE BUT THE FESTIVAL WOULDN’T ALLOW US TO DO ANYTHING UNTILL PEARL JAM LEFT THE STAGE. PEARL JAM ENDED ONE HOUR LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT THAT POINT WE’RE RACING AGAINST THE SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Read the entire thing here. And Kanye, if you’re reading this, go get a really long massage, dude. You seem, uh, a little tense.
All that good behavior has paid off: Britney‘s been granted more visits with her babies! [Us]
Paris loves dogs, okay? And she didn’t freak out in a pet store over a Yorkie puppy – she has 20 of them already. Jeez. [DListed]
Anne Hathaway‘s creepy money laundering ex-boyfriend has finally been arrested – which is like, every girl’s dream for her ex, right? [I'mNotObsessed]
Amy Winehouse left the hospital and started smoking again. Sigh. [WWTDD]
Michelle Williams is pissed at Heath Ledger‘s family over money. Well that didn’t take long. [ICYDK]
Nicole Richie and Mary-Kate Olsen got drunk and partied in flannel shirts. Finally, leaked pics we care about. [IDLYITW]
Remember how Kimmie K. got all pissed that some chick was showing up at clubs pretending to be her? Well Na’Tasha Salim, the alleged impostor, has gone public – like very public – in the latest issue of Smooth Girl magazine. Here’s a peek! What do you think? She loves forensic science and entertainment law (hm, wonder if she’s an expert on celeb impostors?) and hates being single, bad pick up lines and dating famous dudes. Most importantly, she’s not into threesomes. But is she better than the real thing?
The NBA season is over, but Shaquille O’Neal is providing plenty of off court drama by reigniting his feud with former Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant. In this latest round of the battle, Shaq attacks Kobe in a disparaging rap song that was videotaped at a New York City nightclub on Sunday night. In the two minute video, Shaq blames Kobe for the demise of his five year marriage to soon-to-be-ex wife Shaunie, with whom he has four children. Shaq raps,
“I’m a horse, Kobe ratted me out. That’s why I’m getting divorced. He said Shaq gave a [woman] a mil. I don’t do that ’cause my name’s Shaquille. I love ‘em, I don’t leave ‘em. I got a vasectomy, now I can’t breed ‘em.”
Shaq later told ESPN’s Stephen Smith:
“I was freestyling. That’s all. It was all done in fun. Nothing serious whatsoever. That is what MCs do. They freestyle when called upon. I’m totally cool with Kobe. No issue at all. And by the way, don’t forget, six albums, two platinum, two gold. Anybody who knows me knows I’m a funny freestyler. Check the NBA DVD when I was rapping about Vlade Divac during my first championship run. Please tell everybody don’t make something out of nothing.”
OK, Shaq, you were freestyling, but more importantly, why are you a horse?
Okay, okay, maybe that’s not entirely the reason, but Heather Locklear has checked into rehab for anxiety and depression. And seriously, watching one second of Denise‘s show will push anyone into a deep dark pit of despair. Not to mention, she totally banged Heather’s booze-soaked ex-husband Richie Sambora! The official word from her rep is: “Heather has been dealing with anxiety and depression. She requested an in-depth evaluation of her medication and entered into a medical facility for proper diagnosis and treatment.”
Seriously, rehab sounds like the perfect place for Heather right now. So relax it up girl, and figure your sh*t out while you’re at it. We’ll be right here where you left us, still desperately waiting for that Melrose Place reunion to happen.

Tired of living in Beyoncé‘s shadow 364 days of the year, Solange Knowles went to extremes to make sure she owned the spotlight at her birthday bash. While she donned a loud, orange mini-dress, Beyoncé and mom Tina Knowles conservatively wore black wrap dresses. If the family dress code weren’t enough, Solange got the hottest DJ in town, Samantha Ronson, to work the event, posing with her and (rumored) girlfriend Lindsay Lohan. Hopefully Solange’s new single will allow her to taper the attention-grabbing antics. Ludacris, Ne-Yo, Cee-Lo, JoJo, Mario, and The Pussycat Dolls were also at the fete.
Below, check out promo shots for New York Goes to Hollywood, the new half-hour candid reality show premiering Aug. 4 at 10/9c on VH1. The show charts the quest for fame of VH1′s reality H.B.I.C. And as you can see, New York is seriously getting into her role as an ingénue, as she wears many hats wigs and hams it up for the camera. She even found time to mug for the camera on her home turf. Is there life beyond reality TV for New York? Who knows, but certainly, she’ll need a reality show to find the answer.
But that’s not all! Below check out New York Goes to Hollywood‘s theme song, the appropriately titled “The World Should Revolve Around Me” by Little Jackie. And you can hear the entire Little Jackie album, The Stoop, now via the Leak.
Linda Hogan allegedly freaked out the other day after spotting Hulk‘s car driving near her house, and she promptly called 911, accusing her ex-hubby of violating the restraining order she has against him. She then started following him until the 911 operator told her to stop. Linda supposedly went so far as to accuse her daughter Brooke of spying on her for her ex, and then claimed Hulk had been physically abusive toward her. The police investigated, and found no restraining order against her hubby, and Brooke came forward to insist that “I know for a fact that the accusations made against my father are completely false.”
