Not only do folks not want to listen to Katharine McPhee, they also don’t want to look at her. The American Idol star (who was dropped from her record label last week) is shopping around shots of her February nuptials to boyfriend Nick Cokas, but apparently no one wants them. After offering the pics to People, OK! and InTouch, a source says that UsWeekly might be interested, but for far less than the $60,000 asking price.
The practice of selling shots from star-studded weddings has become commonplace, with guests banned from taking shots so exclusives can be given to tabloid magazines. McPhee’s $60,000 fee pales in comparison to the $2 million Britney received when she married K-Fed, the $3 million Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher received, and even Xtina‘s paltry half mil sum.
Very early in this first episode of Rock of Love 2 with Bret Michaels, Big John lays down the formula for the show. Everything you need for a great season is in the following steps:
1. Bring the noise.
2. Bring the barrel full of Bret’s Brew.
(No, really. It’s called Bret’s Brew.)
3. Bring the mess.
4. Bring the swing.
Lather, rinse, repeat. Hold the lather, actually. Soap has no place in this house.
Congrats to Nicole Richie and Christina Aguilera! They both were busy on Friday poppin’ out babies at the same time ( and at the same hospital). Nicole and her boyfriend Joel Madden welcomed a baby girl named Harlow Winter Kate Madden, while Xtina gave birth a couple of hours later to new son Max Liron Bratman. It’s probably too soon – and too creepy – to suggest that these two tots should totally date someday, right? Anyway, everyone (admittedly, ourselves included) is so mushy and gushy over the starlets’ new journey into motherhood that we’ve almost forgotten the moments that got them here. You know the assless chaps, the hair extensions, the trashy make up and boob flashing. But rest assured, we haven’t! So Harlow Winter Kate and Max, when that angsty moment comes around your thirteenth birthday, and you feel the urge to lash out against your super cool Hollywood mom, this post will be there for you, preserved somewhere in the archives of the web. Print out these pics (see below), hang them around your mansion and enjoy the drama that follows. You can thank us by not ever needing to go to rehab.

5 Down, 15 To Go Posted at 9:54PM EST
So Jackey, Missi, Ashley, Erin and Courtney failed to make the cut. What do you think of Bret’s choices? Should he have kept any of these girls, and if so, who should he have booted instead?
Pole Position Posted at 9:37PM EST
Jackye: able to work the pole or eligible for retirement?
There is a new batch of girls vying for Brett Michaels’ heart. We asked which of them are hot and which are not, then we read through thousands of comments and ranked the cast in order of hotness. Each girl’s “score” is the percentage of people that find her to be hot. Let us know if you agree with the final results and visit the Rock of Love 2 show page for photos and videos.

HOT = 369
NOT = 2

Nimrods surround us, no doubt. But what kind of nimrod actually tries to “honk” the boobs on a computer generated chart of the female torso while he’s delivering the weather forecast to a Nowheresville, Indiana TV audience?
Web Junk is back in action. Be sure to watch it tonight on VH1.
Radiohead: What eminently likeable rapscallions they are.
In addition to snookering the entire record industry by releasing their latest collection, In Rainbows, on their own, without the mitigation of label distribution and/or marketing (really makes you wonder whether Seinfeld needed to torture everyone with that Bee Movie campaign, doesn’t it?), the experimental British post-rockers topped Billboard’s album charts this past week. The amount of records sold was negligible — they didn’t even break 130,000 — but still, for a band that basically gave away its new album for free online, that’s not half bad. Because Radiohead loves you, they’ve released videos of them performing songs off their new album. Watch “Jigsaw” (above), “Unravel,” “Reckoner” and “Bodysnatcher” here now. The lo-fi charm is undeniable. Just try to deny it, and we’ll send 10 rabid Radiohead fans to your house now to explain why you’re wrong. They’ll do it, too. Trust us.
Adrien Grenier, better known as the allegedly sexy Vincent Chase on Entourage (personally I think he looks like one of the dudes on Cavemen), has been casing the country recently searching for some easy tail. Adrien allegedly propositioned a pair of pals in Miami over the holidays with, “Why don’t we just all go upstairs? I want to sleep with both of you.’?” He was also spotted hitting on a girl at a party in NYC by asking her name and occupation, followed by, “That’s cool. So how about we go home and I f*ck the sh*t out of you?”
Hard to resist, surely, but the girl shockingly turned him down. But now the dude has wised up and gone after someone of his own, er, caliber: Italian stallion rider, Lindsay Lohan. The pair reportedly went on a date this week in Beverly Hills, where their conversation surely flowed like the finest red wine:
Adrien:So, what do you do?
Lindsay: I’m an actor. You?
Adrian: I’m an actor too.
Lindsay: Cool. So…
Adrian: Yeah, so. Do you wanna go-
Lindsay: Yes, now.
