Wesley Snipes Gets His Prison Stripes


wesleysnipes.jpgHoping for a fourth Blade movie? You’ll have to wait until 2011, when Wesley Snipes will finally be getting out of jail. The actor was sentenced to three years in prison for failing to file his tax returns for three years. He allegedly owes over $41 million in back taxes, of which he paid $5 million back at his last hearing.

Famous pals including Denzel Washington and Woody Harrelson wrote letters to the judge on Snipes’ behalf, but to no avail. The actor also attempted to defend himself in court, stating, “I’m very sorry for my mistakes and errors. I apologize to my family, the court and the community. I’ve asked the court to show me mercy and the opportunity to make things right.” Well, that didn’t really work all to well, as Snipes received the maximum sentence for the charges brought against him.

Oprah & Tom Reunite for Couch Craziness


tomycruise.jpgWhy, Oprah, why? Our talk queen heroine has invited the king of crazy back on her show to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his flick Risky Business. Tommy will make not one, but TWO appearances on her show in May to coincide with the sweeps season, when all of America tunes in to see what the networks can cough up before the TV execs speed away to the Hamptons for the summer and leave us watching reruns of Home Improvement on cable.

Tom’s rep gushed that, “He is really looking forward to it.” Of course he is. The guy is excited about EVERYTHING. So get ready for the most intense two hours of television America – and when it’s over, pour a little bit of Cristal out for your girl Katie Holmes, who experiences that insanity on a daily basis. Poor thing.

Megan Fox: Hotter Than Our VH1 Starlets?



So FHM has named Megan Fox the Sexiest Woman in the World. So what? She may win when up against such pedestrian pretties as Angelina Jolie and Keira Knightly, but can she beat our bevy of VH1 hotties? Check her out against Deelishis, Daisy and Adrianne Curry above.

Has she launched her own jean line for bootylicious ladies? NO. Did she bag a Brady and live to tell about it on TV? Hell NO! Check out our super-sized gallery below of our favorite VH1 hotties. Do you think Megan Fox deserves her Sexiest crown, or do the women of VH1 knock her off her pedastal?

Mimi Turns Empire State Building Pink



Tomorrow evening, New York City is honoring hometown girl Mariah Carey by lighting up the Empire State Building lavender, pink and white (of course) to celebrate her latest chart-topping album E=MC2.

American Idol: Carly Booted From Great White Way



After Tuesday’s train wreck, how would the six Idol hopefuls fare? The musical theater songs of Sir Andrew Lord Webber, as the judges rightly noted, are more complex than most of the pop hits the contestants have so far taken on; the bigger voices carried the night, and the more musically adept performers seemed closest to making it to the next round. But how would America vote?

Amy Winehouse Really Wants to Go to Jail


amy.jpgWon’t someone please just arrest Amy Winehouse? It’s clearly what she wants in life, more than her husband, a hit album, Grammys, and her health. Last night Wino was out in foggy London-town getting hammered at a pub, and ended her night head-butting a fellow bar patron who was trying to hail her a cab home. She also allegedly punched another customer, did drugs in the street, made out with her male companion and overturned tables in the pub. A spy even claimed that Amy was screaming, “I am a legend, get these people out. I want to take drugs.”

Officers are now officially investigating the incident(s), and Amy could very well be charged and arrested. So please, Scotland Yard, come on over and round up your girl. It’s what she wants most in this world. [The Sun]
